Firemen Advanced by Council Turned
Down by the Mayor.

Mayor Beardsley yesterday vetoed an ordinance to make regular firemen of Peter McCarthy, George Monahan, Robert Henderson and Frank O'Leary, all of whom are under the regulation height of firemen, but in whose interest the council had passed a special enabling ordinance. The mayor pointed out that one of the four had been dismissed from the department for intoxication. He offered no objections to the other three, two of them having served a term of years as watchboys and substitutes.
