Damaging Testimony Produced in the Police Investigation
(complete article)

Committee appointed by the city council to investigate the conduct of the chief of police met in the office of W.L. Brown last evening. There were present, W.L. Brown, Chairman, D.M. Jones, Chas. Petersen, M.C. Murphy, and City Attorney Polk, as examiner; Gutche being absent.

The following witnesses were sworn and testified, Messrs. Kinser, Will Brantner, John Fitspatrick, Bob Karns, Dave Miller, and Stotler.

All witnesses testified to having seen the accused frequenting saloons since the passage of the resolution prohibiting it; some had seen him drinking, and ridiculing the resolution; some had seen him playing cards in the saloon, others testified that he had drunk in the saloon on Sunday. One witness gave names of parties that had been with him in questionable houses, but the committee deemed it unneccessary to call witnesses, as the evidence was conclusive. One witness testified that the accused had used the power given him as police to gratify his personal greed for vengeance, inasmuch as, at a certain time the witness had ben[sic] imprisoned, having committed no offense, but simply because he (the witness) had talked of what he knew of the character of the accused.

The committee then adjourned, subject to the call of the chairman, either for report or further investigation.

There appears to be no question that Police Archer has repeatedly frequented saloons, since the passage of the resolution forbidding it, which of its self is certainly suffficiently damaging, to justify the accusation, and warrant such punishment as a just tribunal might mete out.

In the opinion of THE HERALD our chief of police, to say the least should be a law-abiding citizen, and one, even, whose character is above reproach. We hope that an impartial investigation will be conducted, and that an unbiased tribunal will award justice to all concerned.
