business before the city council
tomorrow night. Aside from two
Items $6000 for the county
health unit and $31,620 for sal
aries of the police department, the
budget of $376,833 is expected to
be adopted without protest.
Proponents and enemies of the
health unit appropriation are both
expected to attend Monday night's
session, although an Informal can
vass of aldermen Indicates the
health unit item is going to pass
as now constituted. Especial im

A number of petitions have
been circulated and signed calling
for Increasing the police depart

amount appropriated for 1931.
Advocates of this increase declare
that it Is a poor time to make any
reductions in police department

(AP) A Mukden dispatch to the
newspaper Nichi Nichi today 6?.:d
a 10-day truce had been arranged
between Japanese authorities and
General Mah Chan-Shan pending
completion of repairs to the NoeeI
river bridge in Manchuria.
The repairs to the bridge had
been practically completed, tbe
The truce followed negotiations
between the two Japanese repre

the Manchurian general. It was
agreed upon after the Japanese
had presented five conditions,

along with other city departments.
O'Hara also Indicated there was
no feasible way to increase the
budget enough to Include a $3000
police department raise.
There has been talk that the
$4500 item for Incinerator main
tenance will be stricken from the
1932 budget. O'Hara said Satur
day he would not favor such a
move until some other deal had
to run the incinerator.
"While several proposals were be
fore the council this year where
in thA incinerator would be mide
sel '-supporting, none were accept
ed by the council. O'Hara said he
tinned that some proposal for
making the Incinerator self-supporting
could soon be adopted by
ronnril and that a consider
able portion of the $4500 appro
priated for 1932 could be turned
back to the general fund of the
