The encampment promises to be the most important of any yet held. Child Walte of Hyde Park personal mortgage broker1, and mariularturers of lumber, have dissolved partnership, and costs for neglecting to properly bury her infant. The charge of murder was dropped when it was learned that the infant was dead when it was born.

Wednesday afternoon the Mayor sent for Officer Colby to call on him at his residence. The officer responded to the call, and after an hour's visit with the city's chief executive he was ready to take the Mayor's advice and from the police force. Thursday he meekly entered the office of the chief and tendered him his badge and well-w. rn club. No one has been appointed to wesr Colby's uniform, and no one will be.

The chief says he can dispense with the services of one or two more and thereby save the taxpayers several hundred dollars a year. The Mayor should hasten to remove several more of his inefficient appointments. Will he do it The gross incapacity of some of the remaining members of the police force was further exemplified Thursday by the uncalled-for arrestiof John Moran by Officer Dunn on a trumped-up charge of theft. Moran is a gentleman from the Battery, and on that evening was in company with one William Welsh of that portion of the city. Neither are Masons.

Welsh gave one dollar to Moran to purchase intoxicants for the evening, and Moran failed to return after receiving the dollar. Welsh at once went to the police station and lodged a complaint of theft against his comrade. Officer Dunn mde the arrest without a warrant. Last evening Moran was brought before the city court and the charge brought against him was not theft, for which he was arrested, but drunkenness. He was acquitted after a short trial.

The turnkey of the jail, W. H. Brunelle, Sheriff Reeves and Constable Scully all testified that in their opinion the man had not been drinking. The three saw him immediately after his arrest, and all can be relied upou. Officer Dunn may be somewhat in the right, because the arrest was made on complaint, but an officer is always to use his discretion in considering complaints, and in this case there wis no shadow of discre tion.

In order to secure a conviction the unfounded charge of theft wab dropped and a charge of drunkenness lodged. We do not understand by what art of legerdemain such a shuffle can ie made by an officer. The complaint and arrest were not justifiable, and the entire unfitness of another officer is plainly shown. Must it be tolerated PROBATE COURT.

IHardwick Gazetted In Burlington the saloon keeners have always been the largest contribu tors to celebration subscription papers, always with the undemanding that they be allowed to recoup by keeping open oar without molestation on the day of the celebration. A Fourth of July entertainment is now in nrertc ra tion, and the Clipper insinuates that the above arrangement is yet in force.

Without the rum fund the finances would be considerably limited, and hence prohibition is suspended in order to have a celebration. Out of Place Anywhere Else.
