They Spend Several Hours Discussing Affairs Pertaining to the Borough Government.
The Contract for Making the Police Uniforms Causes A Lengthy Debate.
<snip>
D. R. James, of the lamp and watch committee, reported that the uniforms for the police had been ordered of W. J. Jacobs. This opened the battle of the evening. T. J. James asked what they were to cost and D. R. James answered one dollar less a suit than last year and better material. Mr. Gable said bids for the uniforms should have been procured and declared the contract to Mr. Jacobs was one of the concessions of the deal. D. R. James said the committee did get bids and T. J. James retorted that they were not asked for until after the committee underston it would get into trouble. Mr. Kerns said he and D. R. James went to four tailors and asked them to put in bids and only two did so -- they were Swalm and Jacobs. Mr. McElhenny wanted to see the bids and the chairman said it had not been customary for Council to have the bids. Mr. Boehm said the taxpayers were directly interested in the matter; that the committee should get bids and the contract should be given to the lowest bidder. Mr. Kerns said the committee did get bids and had not been instructed to bring them before Council, nor had the committee of previous years done so. Messrs. McElhenny and T. J. James then said the contract was awarded before bids were asked. D. R. James said he was the question with the protesting Coucnilmen, and not the uniforms. At times two and three Councilmen were anxious to hold the floor and the chairman was obliged to call and rap for order repeatedly.
Finally the matter settled down to a question of style. Mr. McElhenny moved that the regulation, double-breasted frock coat uniform be adopted. On a division the chairman declared the motion lost.
Mr. Gaffigan moved that the police be furnished with a sack coat and on a division the motion was carried.
