amount of something like I ISO
Which the city claims Mr, Ilell was
snort in his accounts.
?The city also holds another claim 1
against Mr. Hell for a coal hill t*hat.|
according to the city records, has
never been paid. The city purchased |
coal In excess of its own need* and
maintained a municipal wood yard In I
the period of fuel shortage Imme
diately following the war and the|
records are that Mr. Hell bought coal
of the city which he has never paid |
The matter seems to have bung
fire ever since, when an audit by A.
Lee Kawlings & Company of Nor
folk disclosed the shortage in JunrL
1922. The matter was placed in the
hands of the flnanc*' committee of
the City Council, of which IV H. Wil
liams was then chairman, but Mr.
Williams resigned when he became
State Senator and the committee
seems never to have reported finally
ion the matter.
"When Mr., Bell retired from the
office of city auditor, in December.}
1921." nays Mr. William*, "an audit
by City Tax Collector "Wood showed,
him doe the city a matter of
$?>00. That he paid. The following
June when A..Lee llawlinK* & Com-1
panv of Norfolk made an audit of
the--city's finances the shortage now
outstanding was disclosed. We culled
on Mr. Ilell for the amount and he
said that he would pay it; but he
had not done so when I retired from
the board last January."
Since th<> new adminiHiration has
been Jn office, It is- claimed, an ef
fort to come to .an understanding
with Mr. Hell directly has resulted
In nothing more definite from him
than his promise to the city attorney
I to see him later.

I Mr. Bell. "I turned over my books

SEYMOKE AND CHIEF
IN VERBAL CLASH
A verbal crash between former po
lice Offtcei? Seymore-. wtit* wan
dropped from the force when the
present City Council went In office
and Chief Gregory relieved Ihe 'te
dium *of an otherwise rather dull ses
sion of the Council Monday night.
Mr. Seymore objected to the' phras
ing of the minutes of the meeting at
?which he was exhonorated of any
charges of any improper conduct \)
(an officer and. particularly, of pip
ping off a suspected bootlegger n*
advance of a raid on the latter'*
home. Mr. Seymore thought that
I the minutes ought to show the
-charge against him had been made
by Chief Gregory ^ho, Mr. Seymore
: said, "lied on me." To the man on
!the side-lines it was difficult to get
|the pro and coil of the argument.
Gregory had reported to certain
members of the Council a charge that
had come to him to the effect that
Seymore was more or leM In sympa
thy with bootlefgers, and had tipped
off a certain suspected bootlegger
that his house would be raided. The
Chief gave-former Chief of Police
Holmes as authority for his charge,
i Holmes was quoted by Seymore as
saying that he did not say What Greg
ory said he said. If'the Council
jcotjjd pive >jr. Seymore no redress
(for being lied on he was gol.ig to
I see what redress he cplild obtain
'from the courts.
I "Would you accept your old place
I on the police force back?" asked
"Under your present Chief?"
| "Of course." was the reply.
"So!" replied Seymore with em
"I move we let Mr. Seymore pro
ceed to seek his redress from the
courts." said Councilman Gordon
blandly. And that was that.'. The
verbal tilt between -Seymore and
Gregory came when Gregory got to
his feet to resent the frequent use of
the phr;i*e "lied on me" by Seymore.
Gregory -aid he was prepared to
prove ell he had said.
C. Anderson's appointment by
Chief Gregory was confirmed by the
City Council at this session. Mr.
