There was, at the time, no officer in the department with the requisite experience and qualifications who could be spared for this work; hence it was decided to appoint a special officer. Mr. Tibbitts was appointed on the 14th October, 1912, at a salary of $2,400 per annum; his present salary is $2,600 per annum.
