[EDITOR'S NOTE: The author of this item is unknown. Mark Twain's letter to the Virginia City Territorial Enterprise published a few days earlier had contained an item "What Have the Police Been Doing?" which was highly critical of the San Francisco police department. If Clemens attended the scheduled meeting, any report he wrote about it has been lost.]
COME FORWARD, MARK!
A committee has been appointed by the Board of Supervisors to examine the charges against the police and report. The committee meets to-day at 2 o'clock, in the Supervisors' room at the City Hall. "Mark Twain" has said a great many wicked things against the police in his reckless scribblings; and the Examiner very properly calls on him to come forth and show his hand. Every one who has any charge to prefer against any member of the police will be heard by the committee. Will "Mark" be on hand?
