President French nnd Henry Gere Think
the Democrats Will Buffer Most.
President Stephen B. Fronoh, of tho Board
of Police, is on intense partisan Republican,
and nover fails to scoro a point for his politi
cal friends when ho can. To an Evxnino
Would roporter he said yesterdays
"The Republicans will carry this State
this fall as sure as my name is Frenoh.
Every report rocclvcd shows that the poople
are ripe for a change, and the division in the
Democratic ranks ty a separate labor party
will add greatly to the Republican majority."
" Where do you place the Labor voto ?" ,
" The Labor voto in New York and Brook
lyn alone will reach 100,000, in my opinion,"
Mr, French said exultantly, " and that will
give the Republicans the State."
" IIow much of tho Labor vote will come
from tho Republicans ?"
" Not over 15 per cent., or 15,000, as against
85,000 drawn from the Domoorats. I am not
prepared to say how largo the Labor vote,
will be in tho State, but it will be heavy
in all tho large cities. Tho Prohibi
tion vote in this State will be about
50,000 so that it is easily seen that tho bulk
of tho loss will fall upon tho Demoorats.
This assures the State to tho Republicans.
It will bo the first gun for 1888 and means
tho election of a Republican President. Who
our candidate will do I am not? prepared to
say but unless all signs fail James G. Blaine
will bo tho man."
After this bit of political wisdom, Mr.
Fronoh was ready to attend to police busiuess
on a strictly " non-partisan " basis.
When an Evenino World reporter asked
Honry Gcorgo this morning what he thought
his voto would bo, Mr. Goorgo pullod out tho

If there should be any justice dispensed in
this clty.it should be in these conrts.where the
poorer people have to appeal for their rights
and their wages. They are people who know
little of the meshos of the law and who,
abovo all others, need tho protection that the
law gives. The justices of tho Civil District
courts, therefore, should bo men who would
recognize tho right in rags as against the
wrong in silks or broadcloth.
There are elevon of these petty but impor
tant tribunals scattered throughout the city,
and politics has a grip on noarly every one of
them. The Justice may bo kind-hearted, an
honost law-giver and may try to mete out
mercy with his decrees, but the foot remains
that politics is there just tho same. The
lowest of politicians hang around tho court
rooms to rob poor poople who come to ask
forjuBtice. Clerks who owe their appoint
ment to machine influence are over ready to
make overcharges, whllo burly and greedy
city marshals, with red faces and stony
hearts, are always in a hurry to throw the
household goods of a poor widow out of
windows for non-payment of rent. It must
bo said, however, that a few of the justices
do all in thoir power to prevent subordinates
from extorting blood-money from thoso who
enter the portals of tho oourts.
At the coming election ten civil justices
aro to be chosen. Thoro will bo no oloction
In the Tenth District, Twenty-thlrd and
Twonty-fourth Wards, as Justice Andrew
Jackson Rogers was recently elected for a
term that does not oxpire for somo years.
Suooessors are to be elected to Civil Justices
Michael Norton, Charles M. Olanoy, George
W. Porker, Alfred fitecklor, John Henry
McCarthy, William H. Kelly, Ambrose
Monell, Frederick G. Gedney. Henry P.
McGown and Leo O. Dessar. Thoy are all
candidates for renominatlon and re-elootlon,
with tho possible exception of Jnstios Parker,
who 1b aged and who is weary of the duties of
There are also hosts of candidates in each
of the judicial districts who aro striving for
the justiceship. Lawyers with small prac
tices but plenty of political influence are the
most untiring in thoir efforts to be made jus
tices of the couits of the poor. From the pres
ent appearance of things the oivil justice
ships aro to be raffled off in the harmony pro
oeedingB between Tammany Hall and the
County Democracy. Tho judicial districts
aro for the most part the same as the Senn.
torial districts. If Tammany Hall is awaided
the united nomination for Senator in n dis
trict the County Democracy will probably
name the candidate for Civil Justice in the
samo political borough,
Miohael Norton Is the prcsont Justice of the
First District Court, which comprises the
First and Fifth Assembly districts. Ho was
elected as a County Democracy man, but ho
is now tho Tammany Hull leader of the Fifth
Assembly District. Ho will be renominated.
Frank Fltzgernld, son of the late ox-Alderman
James Fitzgorald, is an aspirant for the
bench. He is a law-partner of James Walsh,
nenhew of Warden Tom Walsh.
Tho Booond District takes in tho Second
nnd Third Assembly districts, nnd Justice
Charles M. Clancy, Tammany Hall, wants
another term of sixyoars at $6,000 por an
num. Then Warden Walsh would liko to see
his nephew tako Clancy's place. Ex-Assemblyman
James Oliver would accept any nom
ination that ho thought would result in his
being called a judge. " I am tired of being
called Jimmy," says Oliver.
The next Justice of the Third District
Court will probably seoure his election by a
deal within his party organization. George
B. Deane, jr.,of the Ninth Assembly District,
has beon an Assemblyman and an Alderman.
Bo has his father. Now, George B. Deane,
it., is slated to sucoeed Justice George W.
'arker. Both are Republicans. Tho slate
is Fire Commissioner Cornelius Van Cott, of
the Seventh Assembly District, for Senator
in Gibbs's old hunting ground, and young
Deane, of the Ninth Distriot, for Judge. The
Seventh and Ninth nominate the Judge, and
tho Seventh. Ninth and Thirteenth the Sen.
ator. The judicial district is a Republican
Tho Fourth District is a large German dis
trict, whioh six years ago elected Alfred
Btookler a Justice against all machines and
combinations. It includes the Tenth and
Seventeenth'wards, or tho Eighth, Tenth and
Fourteenth Assembly districts. Justice
Steokler has no opposition for re-election, ex.
cept from John J. O'Brion and Police Jus
tice Jacob M. Patterson and the Republican
machines behind them. The independents,
various trades and workingmen's unions have
nominated Justice Stockier and he is to re
ceive the indorsement and union nomination
from Tammany Hall and the County Democ
racy. Police Justice Patterson and John J.
O'Brien will probably run Henry O. Botty, a
machine Republican politician and lawyer,
against Stockier. Bets are being made that
Stockier will have 5,000 votes to spare after
the returns aro counted.
Thero promises to be somo fun in the Fifth
District, which is composed of the Boventh,
Eleventh and Thirteenth wards. If Senator
Edward F. Rellly, Tammany Hall, is renom
inated the Civil Justiceship, on the union
deal, will go to the County Domocracy. John
Henry McCarthy, who now hands down de
cisions in Clinton stroet, is not identified
with either organization. Ho is likely to be
shuffled out. Juror Commissioner Charles
Reilly is working to nominate his son-in-law,
Benjamin A. Douros, who is employed in the
Distriot-Attornoy's office. Congressman
Timothy J. Campbell is backing up the
claims of Honry M. Goldfogle, while ex
County Clerk Patrick Keenan is offering
Joseph E. Neuberger as a choice. Neuber-
Ser fs also a candidate for City Court. Justice
lcCorthy says that he will run independent
for re-eleotlon, and boasts that the Jefferson
clubs of the Fourth and Sixth Assembly dis
tricts will support him.
The Sixth Distriot Civil Court is composed
of the Eighteenth and Twenty -first wards, or
Eleventh, Sixteenth and Eighteenth Assembly
districts. William H.Kelly, present justice, is
to receive thy) united Demooratio nomination
for re-eleotion. He is a member of the County
Democracy and is very popular on the east
side. He spends port of his salary every
summer in giving excursions to the widows,
their children and the worthy poor of the
Eighteenth and Twenty.flrst wards, no has
beep a Jnstlco for twelve .yearn and none of
his decisions havo boen reversed by the
highor courts. The Republicans ore talking
ot nominating nenry Kropf, who succeeded
the late Michael Oregon as tho machine boss
in tho Sixteenth District. Ho was oolorkin
the law office of Assemblyman ErncstJrosby,
son of the Rev. Howard Crosby.
If Jnstloe Ambrose Monoll is not promoted
to a higher court ho may stand for ro-eleo-tion.
He Is a Tammany Hall adherent. His
district covers a good deal of the Twontieth
aud Twenty-first Assembly dlstrlots. Ex
Civil Justice J. O. Julius Langbein is hunt
ing for the Republican nomination, and ho
has the idea that ho can win if a Labor can
didate should got into tho race.
Ex-Senator Frederick S. Gibbs and his
friends havo declared war against Civil
Justice Frederick G. Gednqy in tho Eighth
District. They say that if Godney is rcnom
inatod they will use scalping knives on eleo
tion day. Tho antl-Gibbs Republicans vow
by reform and dude politics that they will
slaughter any nominee brought to tho front
by the wicked ex-Senator. This protty
fomlly quorrel in tho G. O. P. has made
several Democrats hankor after tho Justice
ship of the Thirteenth and Fifteenth Assem
bly districts. Assemblyman Mulry would
take it. So would John Joralomon. The
United Democratio nomination would not go
a-begging. Two Democratio candidates and
one Republican candidato would elect tho
It is said that Tammany Hall and tho
County Democracy have come to an under
standing in tho Harlem judicial district. Jus
tice Honry P. McGown, who has grown
gray on tho bonoh, is to retire, and ex-Assemblyman
Joseph F. Fallon, County Democ
racy, is to secure the union prizo. Assembly,
man Jacob A Cantor. Tammany Hall, is fo no
nominated for Senator as suoccssor to Will
iam O. Traphagen. Tho abovo combination
is thought to be very likely.
If Tammany Hall names tho Senator in tho
Eleventh District tho County Demoqrncy will
name tho candidate for Civil Justice. Leo
O. Dossar. Tammany Hall, is now Justice. It
is a new distriot. Justico Dessar would liko
to seo the County Dcmooraoy draw the Sena
torial nomination. He might then be nom
inated. The admirers of Denis A. SpelllBsy
are prosBing him for Justice. He is the
County Democrnoy chief in the Nineteenth

Unable to Do Duty.
Policeman Edward Hahn, who shot Capt.
Jack Hussey and was acquitted, has not yet

he was transferred whon his shield was given
back to him by the Superintendent.
His work in Oapt. Robbins's precinct was

ing, but at 4.80 o'clock that afternoon Hahn
walked into the station-houso and told Sergt.
F. W. Martins that he was too ill to go on
duty. Ho looked exhausted, and there was a
suspioion of liquor about his breath accord,
ing to tho Sergeant. While he lay on a bench
in the rear room Police Surgeon Luoien
Damainvilla was sent for. He lives at Eighty,
fourth streot and the Western Boulevard,
and did not reach the station-houso till
noarly 7 o'olock.
He oxamined Hahn and found him suffer
ing from nervous prostration, caused by long
continued mental Btrain. He considered
him unfit for duty and the oftloar was there
fore sent to his homo in East Seventy-sixth
street. Dr. Damainvillo gave him a tonio

Unless tho Police Board at to-morrow's
