He shall have the same powers in all cases as justices of the peace to administer oaths and take affidavits. He shall also have exclusive civil and criminal jurisdiction of all violations of the charter, by-laws and ordinances of said village, of the grade or class which, as to amount, punishment or penalty, would otherwise be within the jurisdiction either of courts of special sessions or justices of the peace of towns.

And at the first meeting of the board of trustees in every month he shall return thereto, in such form as the board of trustees may prescribe, a sworn tabular statement of all such fees, fines, allowances and moneys collected or received by him, directly or indirectly, during the last month preceding, and with it the receipt of the treasurer of the village, showing the payment of all such fines, allowances, fees and moneys into the village treasury for the benefit of the village; and any omission to render such statement or to pay over any moneys collected or received by him, or any part thereof, before such first meeting of the board in each month, or any false statement, or any intentional omission from such statement of any of said matters or portions of the moneys received by him, shall be sufficient cause for his removal from office by the board of trustees. The board of trustees may also appoint some justice of the peace of the town of Lyons who shall, at any time when the police justice shall be unable to perform the duties, or any of them, of his office, on account of necessary absence from the village, sickness, or any other cause that does not vacate his office, perform all the duties and have all the powers and be subject to all the regulations herein provided in respect to said police justice, and for such services he shall receive a proportionate share of the salary of said police justice, to be determined by the board of trustees, which amount paid him shall be deducted from the salary of said police justice, and such justice of the peace shall receive no fees, pay or allowances from any source for such services, except such proportionate share of said salary. But said justice of the peace shall make all statements and accounts as hereinbefore provided, for the period during which he shall discharge the duties of police justice. Said justice, thus designated, shall continue to discharge such duties in the cases herein provided, during his term of office. If both said police justice and said justice of the peace thus designated shall at any time be temporarily absent from the village or unable to perform the duties of this office, the board of trustees may designate any other justice of the peace of the town of Lyons to perform the duties of said office during said temporary absence or disability, and he shall receive payment therefor in the same manner and subject to the same regulations, including payment for his services, as here inbefore provided for the justice of the peace first hereinbefore mentioned ; and such justice, thus designated to act in case of the absence and inability of both the police justice and the justice of the peace hereinbefore first designated, shall have all the powers of and be subject to all the rules and regulations concerning said police justice for the time he shall act. But no justice of the peace of the town of Lyons shall receive any fees, emoluments or pay from any source, for the performance of any duties or the issuing of any process of which the police justice by this act has jurisdiction; nor shall it be lawful for any justice of the peace of the town of Lyons to make any charge against said village of Lyons, or the town or county in which the same is situate, for services rendered in or respecting criminal cases, trials or examinations in such village, or where the subject matter thereof arose in said village, except as provided by this act, as hereinbefore stated, during the sickness, absence from the village or inability to act of the said police justice, or during a vacancy in said office.
