L IMS, A lengthy document from the Committee on the taw I eparlmenl wa* presented to the Board, reflecting the Mayor's answer to a resolution of the Board, calling upon his' Honor to report the names of all persons appointed to 1 h" Police Department since the 1st of January, W'.V It will be recollected that tlie Mayor refused to comply with 1he request, and denied the right of Ihe Common Council to interfere with the nominations made in the Police Be larliuent, of which he is the head. Ihe ct mmlttfe contend that thf Mayor, a* the head of .the Police Department, i* bound to re port any such information !?? called for. the charter requiring each head of department in the city govern ment to report Information in relation to said depart ment when (.ailed upon in due form. The < ommittee refer to tlie principle established by thr> Mayor in his call laat spring on the (?overnor? of the Almshouse for information. The committee say: ? '1/ the head of the Police Eepartment may deny the authority of this Board to a-k for information, so mar each of tlie other eight departments. Ihe refusal may extend to every request made, and the result would lie that two branches ol the Common Council could obtain no information whatever from the executive deportments. except with the aamo form and delay as in the passage of ordinances. The in dependence of the legislative portion of the city government require* lhat other portions of the message should receive a passing notice ? ? ? o ? ? ? Your committee believe this the 4rst instance on record where an eireciirtve officer hs? Di stuned thus to constitute himself the sole judge as to whether the legislature, in Ihe performance nt it? duties, really lequlres information on a certain subject or D"t. This doctrine once admitted, and the Street Commissioner h nd t he head ot every department and bureau in the city government may, with just the same right, say iu answer to a lesolution of inquiry, "That in our judgment the infoimatiou you ask cannot lie i>-quired to subserve any legislative object, and therefore we respectfully de cline to give it." It is Irtdleved that the bare announce ment of such a doctrine is sufficient to secure it.i univer sal o.udetnmit ion, and t h.tt further comment on it is uunecexMirv . The committee, after further argument and quotations ol law, offered the following resolution" : ? lUr'l.ed, If bib Honor the Mayor shall continue in hie lefnsal to comply with the resolution of thi> Board, passed June 12. 1SS6. requesting certain information tn.ra him in reference to the police department, until tlie expirntinu of ten <l?y from the passagv of this resolution. that then and in that event, the Counsel to the Corporation lie directed to apply far a mandamus, or to take t uch other legal proceeding* as shall be necessary to enforce a eotnpUauM with the termi vtlht resolution above referred to That the Clerk of the Board, upon the pas sage of the (i.tflgfinB, can fl> a copy of i? to be served on his Honor the Mayor.

Motion to print carried. a riuiM*!? >rw iwsrr JAIL. The report of the Committee on Repairs and Supplies was received, in favor of concurring to advertise for a lot on which to erect a building for the county jail and Third district court and prison. The committee *tatc that they are convinced of the necessity of immediate action iu relation thereto- that the proaent county jail is totally inadequate for the purpose* f<* which it is in tended; that better and more extensive mcocnmndatlnn* are needed, with cells. Ac. The committee, therefore, in looking for the most suitable accommodations, deem it best to build on property now owned by the Corporation, and situated between I.udlow ami Kssex street*, and be tween tirand and Broom* street*, being 17.1 feet in length by W feet in bread'h. This property might most Judi ciously be appropriated for the wants of t be city. They therefore recommend tliat the Commissioner of Re| airs and Supplies be directed to jdvcrtlse for pUns and specification* fur a building to be constructed on said property. <>n motion of Alderman I>rakk the report wa/> referred to a committee of one, and that such committee fie com ? pojed of the mechanical art and Intelligence of the Alder man of the Ei^tltb ward, (laughter.)
