Two-Platoon Bill Vetoed
The Malone two-platoon bill for firemen of New York, Buffalo and Rochester has been vetoed by Governor Sulzer. He reached this decision at the hearing on the measure last week after listening to arguments against it by Fire Commissioner Joseph J. Johnson and Fire Chief John Kenlon, of New York. They were accomPanied to Albany by Deputy Commissioner William Farley and Deputy Chiefs Thomas Lally, John Burns, Robert allaghatt. Thomas I’ Hayes, Edward Worth, Thomas Langford, Fred Gooderson and William Guerin. Commissioner Johnson told the Governor that the Board of Trade, the Merchants’ Association, the Chamber of Commerce and practically all of the big civic organizations of New York were against the Malone bill, which, he said, was sneaked through the Assembly without the members even knowing what they were voting for.
