Night Police Needed

Night Police Needed
November 8, 1889

For the safety of our town a night police is much needed, not alone for the safety of our people, but for the safety of property. In a town where there are many tramps, as in this town, its citizens are not safe at night without a guard. What is to prevent houses being broken open by the hand of the robber, or ignited by the torch in the hand of some incendiary? From the hour of 11 until the morning the town is left to the mercy of the numerous rogues that are sneaking around our docks. We think it would be advisable to place at least another man on the police force so our town may be guarded both day and night.
