GOSSIP OF THE BOROUGH
"It Is a pity that some more of those Ignorant
and useless detective sergeants were not reduced
to the ranks," said a person who for many years
has been In close touch with the Brooklyn Police
Department, when he heard cf the degradation of
a number of the men of that rank the other day
by Commissioner Partridge. "There is one In par
ticular whom I have had my eye on for some time,
although I suppose there are many like him. This
man was an ignorant laborer. His v.-lfe, who as
washerwoman for Hugh McLaughlin had struck
the fancy of the Democratic boss, was complaining
one day about the little money her husband made.
•Why, I will put him on the police force. Mary."
said McLaughlin. "Then he can earn enough so
that you will never have to do any more washing.'
So. sure enough, this man became a policeman
within a short time. Boon afterward he secured a
y-oft detail as a court officer, and it was not <i long
time before he was made a detective. Now, so far
as I know, this man has made only about six real,
genuine and original arrests in the ten years he
has been on the force."
Then the Brooklyr.lte told a etory to show the
Intelligence, or lack of intelligence, of the detective.
The detective had at the time just been assigned
to the precinct commanded by Captain Campbell,
who is now an acting inspector. Campbell had
not had time to become acquainted with the man,
when a complaint came in about the robbery o* a
bakery. The detective was sent out with orders to
make a thorough Investigation After an extended
absence he returned and reported th.it thert- was
nobody in the bakeshop, and all he coul.l learn
was that it was rui by a woman named "Charlotte
Russe." He was sure of the name, because he had
seen it in the window.
Robert Merril!, "Steeple Bob." who has climbed
heavenward on the spires of most of the famous
churches in the Eastern cities. Iviar. work on the
queerly formed stt-eph of the Church of the Pil
grims yesterday. The tackle is all in place, and to
morrow "Bob" will begin his perilous ascent. On top
of the spire rests a huge gilded ball. Should this
ever become displaced and fall, it would crush
anything in its path. It is to make sure that this
sphere has not become loosened and to regild its
surface that "Bob" hns I en secured. Th> ball Is
of larce diametrr. nrd it is a source of speculation
as to just how the steeple climber will swing him
self upon its top. There is a stubby lightning rod
surmounting the ball, which may aid in solving the
problem.
"Caisson fever." or "caisson rickets," which
name more nearly describe? the disrase. is becom
ing so common amone those who arc working on
the foundations of the new bridge at Washington-
Et. that the ambulance of the Brooklyn Hospital Is
called out sometimes thre>' times In a single day. The
trouble is caused by the change in air pressures be
tween the caisson and the outer world. In the cais
son the men work unrk-r high pressure, and. if they
foolishly come up int" th.- open air too suddenly
the change lacks th<ir system. Minute blood ves
sels are burst, forming clots. When these clots
form in the hrain they usually prove fatal. There
have been several death? from this cause.
A majority of the two hundred and fifty men em
ployed on the Job are negroe*. who seem best fitted
by nature to withstand the extraordinary air pres
sure. Three hours' work a day. in two shifts of an
hour and a half each, constitute a day's work for
thtse men. who are familiarly known as "sand
hogs." Most of the men, however, do not last long
at the work. One attack of "caisson rickets"
usually cures them of any desire to follow up the
work. The pay is good, and the contractors say
that they have no trouble in getting ail the men
they need.
Enthusiastic advocates of cremation will be de
lighted to learn that prices for cremation have
been reduced recently In Brooklyn. A cheerful an
nouncement made recertly Is that when the crema
tory is used to its fall present capacity of forty
bodies In twenty-four hours the charge will be re
duced to $5 a case, including care of the ashes.
The regular rates, however, according to the new
schedule of prices, are 125 for cremating adults and
$15 for children.
There are several Interesting features of the fes
tival which the Brooklyn Arion Boclcty w!!l hold
In Thanksgiving week at the 47th Regiment Ar
mory. Prizes of $100 each are offered for the best
novels of fifteen thousand words in English and

manuscripts will be judged by Professor Hugo
Miinsterbera: an>l professor Lawrence A- McLouth,
of New-York University. Subjects of novels and
poems must bo taken from American history or the
lives of celebrated men in the T'nlted States.
A prize of $1,000 1b offered by the Brooklyn Arlon
Society for the best rendering of Horatio W. Park
er's "Harold Harfae<r" by a mixed English chorim
of at least one hundred and fifty voices. There will
also be prizes of tSOO and 1300 respectively for male
and female choruses, English and German.

FERINTBXPENT OF [KCCXBRaXCES
VACANCY.
Proceedings have been begun by Edward A.
Dubey in the Supreme Court, Brooklyn, to bring
about the appointment of a superintendent of In
cumbrances tr. succeed Edward A. Goulden, who
resigned a month ago, after serving without pay
for some time. Mr. luibey has applied for a writ
of mandamus, directing Borough President Swan
strom to show cause before Justice Dlr-key. In the
Supreme Court, Brooklyn, why lie should not be
ordered to make th" appointment in question.
It Is alleged by Mr. Dabey that the office of Su
perintendent of Incumbrancas is one whicJi must be
filled from the Civil Service list. After Its creation,
says Mr. Dubey. Edward A. Goolden was appointed
temporarily to fill the office. L,ater an examina
tion was held, which resulted in placing William
Travis, a veteran, at the head of the list, with
two other veterans second and third. Xo appoint
ments were made, but Mr. Gouldrn was permitted,
although the term of his temporary appointment
had expired, to exercise the functions of Superin
tendent of Incumbrances until about June 15. when
he retired voluntarily. Since then Chief Clerk Cas
sldy had been acting as superintendent or perform
ing the functions of the superintendent's office.
Three months have elapsed since the announce
ment of the result of the examinations, as alleged
by the petitioner, who declares there is no warrant
for delay. _
President Swanstrom went to the Thousand
Islands on a three weeks' trip »oon after the pa
pers in the case were served. He remarked re
cently to a friend that he was not obliged by law
to fill the vacancy in question, as the office of
Superintendent of Incumbrances was created at
his request. Mr. Swanstrom said he could abolish
the office altogether If he saw fit to do so, and
thought It was one which required the energies of
a young and active man. If any one filled the place.

Trunk we haven't, our attention hasn't been called to it. We suppose
there are other stores selling Trunks, but it does seem as if everybody who
wants a Trunk comes to vs — and rightly. One entire floor in the new
store is given up to a Trunk show room, but it's the low prices that tell.
"When we show a Trunk that's just as safe as a United States Govern
ment bond and then we name the price— all that's left to do is for our
painter to put on the initials in a fine Italian hand and that Trunk goes
forth into a strenuous world to be strapped and thumped and is the fact
to back the argument. 100 big, brass bound, heavy canvas covered, oiled,
large and strong brass lock, double bottom, one of iron ; actual $5.75

rONGRESS WILJ-. BE ASKED TO APPRO
PRIATE THAT AMOUNT TO COM
PLETE IMPROVEMENTS.
Congress will be eiked at !t» next session to ap
propriate 15,602,867 to complete work now in prof
rese or to develop plans which are being worked
out at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The officers of the
yard find that this sum will be required In the fiscal
year of 1908-'O4. The budget ha* been prepared
and will Boon b« ■übtnltted to the Navy Depart
ment.
A feature of the budget 1* an Hem of $20,000 to
rebuild the admlnlntrntlon buildlnc, which In In
adequate for the purposes it 1b »uppoped to serve.
The cum of S».O0O will bo afked for to rebuild the
Sands-st. entrance to the yard and provide it with
a more attractive gateway. For marine barracks
on the Cob Dock $500,000 will a*aln be asked for.
Congress has been urged for many years to build a
suitable living place at the yard for the sailors,
but the movement In thiH direction has always betn
defeated. It is proposed to replace the receiving
ship at the Cob Dock with largo barracks for the
u.«e of all the sailors at the yard.
The rent of the appropriation asked for will be
required for the completion of MiUdlnKß now under
construction or already planned for. Of thlp
ammint It Is thought IMO.OOu will be needed to oom
nlete the timber storehouses and the smith shops,

system for at least another year. ,„-„«.
A Plan is under consideration to erect one lanr*

KUTKBD TATtHUNH. WHO BBCAFBD IN BROOKL,YJJ.
FOnCBD TO RKTVRN TO ABYL.UM.
Alfred Tarhune. twenty-five yenrs old. who es
caped recently from the Manhattan State Hospital
Car the Insane at Isllp, and was recaptured on Fri
day night, made a vigorous plea for his liberty
yesterday when arraigned before Magistrate Fur
long in the Gates-aye. court. Brooklyn. About
eight months ago Tarhune. as alleged by his wife,
acted irrationally, and was sent to Ward's Island
from Bellevue. and was afterward transferred to
the hospital at Islip.
Tarhune a week ago walked out of an open door
of the hospital, and was clever enough to Interest a
farmer In the neighborhood and get a suit of
clothes from him. Tarhune then went to Man
hattan Beach and was employed rs a waiter.
There he recognized a keeper who was on his trail
and went to Philadelphia.
Tarhune returned to town on Friday and went to
his home, at No. 1,301 Atlantlc-ave., Brooklyn. Mrs.
Tarhune informed the police of the Atlantlc-ave.
station, and when Policeman Lyle was sent to ar
rest him Tarhune was found busily packing a
trunk. He said he was preparing to go to Wash
ington. . ,_ ,
In the Gates-aye. court yesterday Tarhune ac
knowledged that he had been temporarily insane,
but maintained that he was not Insane now. and
that he did not think he should be kept in an in
sane asylum any longer. He wished to be com
mitted to Raymond Street Jail, in order to give
him a chance to prove that he was In full posses
sion of his senses.
Magistrate Furlong said Tarhune talked like a
rational man. and told him to go back quietly with
the officers to the asylum. There he could make
his application for releasa in due form, and the
magistrate promised to help him in obtaining his
release.
WIFE WAXTS HUSBAXD ARRESTED.
IT IS BECAUSE A PROSPEROUS BROKER. WENT
WEST WITH A TRAINED NURSE.
As un attendant circumstance upon a suit begun
by Mrs. Mamie E. Thorne against Albert J. Thorne,
an order of arrest for the latter was filed in the
office of the County Clerk In Brooklyn yesterday
afternoon. It was signed by Justice Dickey. None
of the other papers In the case were filed, and
Charles J. Treck, the lawyer in the case, refused
absolutely to discuss it. The order had not been
turned over to Sheriff Dike for service at a late
hour yesterday afternoon.
In last August Thorne, who was a prosperous
broker, left his home, at No. 603 Putnam-ave..
Brooklyn and went to Denver with a trained nurse.
There- they were found by Mrs. Thorne. who had
them arrested. After some exciting negotiations
the nurse left Denver, advising Thorne to return
to Mb wife This ho promised to do, but it would
sc«m from thn aotion taken yesterday that the
promlso was not carried out.
