Minnies of regular and special meet'
inns held Dooetnber Oth, lUtli and 18th
us previously reported in the .Mmi..
Hi:iiai.u, were read and adopted.
Messrs. Lougheed, Kelly nnd Mclntyre waited iipn n the Counoil,
Mr. Keliie. Last night a siniill
number of citizens met on account of
certain remarks around town, nnd
formed a committee to come and ask
you in regard to matters in Lower
Town connected with rei tain luiuses.
I .liu not here in  the interest   of any
chin eh nr organisation,
On December 1st a real estate trans-
action took place where Is lots uere
snid for Sitfto per lot, On December
17lh the Chief of Police called n ineet-
Ing of tbe occupants of certain houses
In the Lower Town .-mil Informed
tbem that he Innl Instructions to make
liuin vacate the houses they now
occupy by the tirst of June, aiid it was
Indicated tbat tbey migbl goon these
lots, and make Iheii- headquarters at
thai point. A number of these women
are understood to have heen in town
trying to raise money in real estate
offices   and   bankl.      Two   lots   were
ollered by the party wbo has secured
this properly foi 81800and Iiy paying
easli for $1500.
The Chief nf Police. I  nm  informed
hy one of the occupants of these
houses, slnteil lhat the Police Commissioners had given instinct,mis to
close up these houses Iiy the Hist of
June, or to go to the other loeiiliou.
I am not here in the Interests of these
Individuals, not hen to Bay whether
il is advisable to move then parties,
Another woman told a certain partv
that a single lot is 8I20O in block 11.
I want to know whether the Chief of
Police had authority from the Police
Commissioner or if this lias been done
on his own liat, and whv these people
have hcen told that they eould move
or leave town and Involving them
lieing lnid np lor these prices It is
upio this town to know whether
certain Individuals can k° and buy
property and nave th" Chief ol   Police
say tbat tho houses miiBt in* closed or
tbey must move on In Hint, property,
we are supposed to uol in connection
with the I'oliee Oonuulssloiiurs in endeavoring to straighten out this
business.   I believe these are the facts.
Mr. Lougheed.—1 think the ground
has been well covered.
Kev, 11. ,1. Meinlyre. I think the
case has been stated, The point was,
was there nny coiineclion between the
Chief of Police and tbe Police Commissioners; had he received his instructions from lliem, if so, what
authority had he for so doing. We
are positive that lie ordered these
women out of their presenl quarters
and we would like  to  see   lhe   matter
Investigated in order to clear up the
name of the eity.
Mr. Keliie. Either tiie Police Commissioners, the Chief nf Police, or some
citizens .ue holding up these women.
Acting Muyor MiKiiiiiiiii. This is
ihe lirsl time thin matter has come
hefore the Counoil, The Police department is under llie supervision of
the Police Oommis-loners and the
police receive their Instructions from
lbe commissioners. This request for
an Inquiry should Iiave been presented
in another, btil in view of the questions raised which are apparently of
Interesl to some of the citizens, The
Council will discuss this matter and
Inform ymi ea to the result later,
The deputation thanked the Oounoll
and withdrew.
Acting Mayor Sutherland—These
cili/.ens ask for an lovestlganion making certain statements,
Aid. McSorl.iv. We could ask the
police commissioners for a report on
the mattei-.
Aid. Abrahamson, I do noi think the
commissioners have any thing to hide.
They would doubtless weloome an
opportunity to publish a report on the
Aid. Bourne. \ es Unit is alright,
we should asu for an Immediate reply.
Aid. McSorley. I move thai a request
be made to lbe pnli.ie eoiiiiiiis>-iouei's
for an early report on these allegations, seconded by Aid. Bourne and
curried unanimously,
