There has been no crime to spesk of under him since Harrison has been mayor. He is a credit to the -police -police department and to the present administration, and. Instead of being a lieutenant, he ought to be chief of police. Everybody la 'the district. Irre spective of politics, is with him, and we mean to see Justice done." . .s. v.--- v.--- v.--- v.--- i
