Adopted. From same Committee & Committee on Health & Police upon the statement of Justice Soderberg as to the unequal division of Criminal Cases between the two justices recommending that the Police Officers & Chief of Police be notified to divide their respective cases equally between the two justices without favor to either Judge or Criminal. Adopted. From Same Committee on the Complaint against gambling made by Justice Soderberg as follows: "Your Committee begs to report so far as thay have been able to learn, no gambling games are at present running in the City, owing perhaps to the fact that the Grand Jury is now in session. Also that no complaint has been urged against the present ordinance in reference to gambling, hence the complaint, being more particularly urged against the Chief of Police might more properly be referred to the Executive Department of the City Government, as, by reference to the mayor's message of October 7th it will be seen that the Mayor has already taken the necessary step to carry into execution the provisions of the Ordinance, hence we deem it injudicious for the Council to interfere until the Mayor had exhausted his official resources in the Matter or the Ordinance is found to be unwise or defective" Adopted.
