The Ku Klux Klan has experienced another setback here.

Public Safety Commissioner Burton’s attention having been called to the fiery cross, emblem of the Order. on the northeast bench the other night, the Commissioner ordered its removal after getting the sanction for this step from the other commissioners. A new formal resolution of the commissioners reads that no organization using fire as an emblem or ritual will be permitted to celebrate in any place where a fire to public or private property might result. Hoods have already been forbidden the Klan in local parades.
