Witness Who Testified Against Pa-
trolman Ordered to Leave Town.

Mayor Beardsley yesterday informed Police Commissioner Gallagher that a witness named Lee, who had testified in the case involving Officer Park, charged with gambling while on duty, in Sheffield, had been arrested on a charge of vagrancy and had been ordered to "leave town."

"That is more than we must be asked to stand," Commissioner Gallagher declared. "I move that the matter be investigated and that all parties concerned be brought before the board. Are you sure it is true?"

"I know it is true," the mayor confirmed. "Lee testified here against a policeman, the policeman afterwards arrested him as a vagrant, hauled him down here before Judge Kyle and since then has told him he had better get out of town."
