CAUCUS LAST WEEK
No Sanitary Inspector's Oliice
Created FiA Vote 8 to 6
The city council last night passed
from tho old to the new without a
hitch and the new session was only
enlivened by au effort to reduce the
police force from six men to four men.
All of tho dozen applicants who were
after the job as snnitury inspector were
present 09 well as a large body of thcit
supporters but the bone of contention
was removed by painless extraction and
there will be no sanitary inspector this
year except 0110 of tho polico officers
who will be detailed to this job.
When the question of the final pass
age of the ordinance creating the of
fice of sanitary inspector came up
Councilman Huddleson moved tluit the
ordinance be indefinitely postponed
and the motion carried 8 to 0. Huddle
son created nnothtcr discussion when
ho moved to reduce tho- polico force
from six to four men. Councilman
Ward stated thnt the polico worked 12
hour shifts and that it was inhuman to
ask them to increase this shift by uV
crensing the force. Councilman Unruh
considered a decrease to be poor econ
omy and Councilman Elliott declared
that tho suburban districts hud no po
police protection now except on call
and that even this would be removed by
reducing he force. The final vote
stood with Counciuninn Huddleson and
Wilson in favor of a reduction and the
others ngain'st it. Wilson then moved
thnt the force be reduced from six men
to five men and this was lost by n vote
of 9 to 4.
The schedule of appointive officers
rnn off according to schedule. B. W.
-Mncy resigned and U. C. Millet was
elected in his pluco and Macy was elect
ed city attorney. Harry Hutton was
