[April Sat 7]
Have been urging Mayor elect Louis
D. Campbell to appoint D. O. Smith
Chief of Police, but do not think he
will do so. There are many persons
objecting to Smiths appointment.
Campbell offers to appoint him Chief
of the Fire Dept. but Smith thinks his
loyalty to Poyns will not permit him
to accept it - although he otherwise
would accept it.
Sullivan people are urging Croake
for Chief of Police - but will not get
Campbell asked me to attend
the Council canvass of Election
returns on Tuesday & I promised
to do so as his representative.
