§ 130. Police justice; jurisdiction, et cetera.. The police justice shall reside in and keep office in the village. He shall have exclusive jurisdiction, except as hereinafter provided, to issue all warrants in cases where the alleged crime or misdemeanor has been committed within the village of Lyons, and of all cases within the town of Lyons, of persons charged with being tramps, vagrants or disorderly persons, and all cases within the village of Lyons where summary conviction may be had, and in bastardy proceedings, and to hear and determine all complaints, and to conduct all examinations and trials in criminal cases that may now by law be had by a justice of the peace or before a court of special seessions;* and shall have the same power and jurisdiction in such criminal cases arising in said village which justices of the peace now have by law, or which may hereafter be conferred upon justices of the peace by law. 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. The course of procedure and practice before the police justice, and in his court, shall be the same as prescribed by the laws of this state in like cases before justices of the peace, or courts of special sessions of towns, according to the nature of the proceedings, except as hereinafter provided. For the enforcement of any fine imposed upon or penalty recovered against any person for any violation of the charter, ordinances or by-laws of said village, the police justice may, unless the same with all costs is paid, commit such person to imprisonment, as in cases of fines for like amounts imposed under the penal or criminal laws of this state by the justices of the peace or courts of special sessions in towns, or, in his discretion, he may, unless the same with all costs is paid, commit such person for a number of days certain, not exceeding the number of the dollars of the fine, to the jail of Wayne county, or to the lock-up or place of confinement that shall be erecte provided by authority of said village, but such imprisonment shall not in any case exceed thirty days.

Said docket shall be subject to inspection at all times by the trustees, or any of them, and by any inhabitant of said village and by any person interested in any matter mentioned therein. The police justice shall collect and receive all fees, fines and allowances that are by law collectible by justices of the peace or courts of special sessions in towns, or that may be imposed or received by him, to enforce the charter or any of the by-laws or ordinances of said village or in any prosecution for a violation of section one hundred and thirty-three of this act. 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 desig. nated, 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
