way through life and obey the orders of superior

Officers ■ m lauiy situated have found the condi

RATAL "HT~MP" ERADICATION —Naval offi
cer* srho * * Interested In obtalnlne l<*risiation af
fecting tha commissioned personnel will make a
( ,^. l . rrr . Bed effort to have adopted at the next ses=
afoa o* Congress a system of -grade retire
ment, after th« fashion proposed last year by the
ofctaf of '--•» Bureau of Navisraticr.. a? ■ mmim Of
trasif^rri:!? from the active list those officers whi»
h*a.T- attained a stipulated agre in any grade. This
tas all beea flpired out so as to provide retirement
ari rr.a:-taln a flow of promotion at a rat« which
«CD relieve the service or the threatened "hump,
tiie approach of which is viewed with something
!■-> short of alarm by the erTW-? of the service.
It is realized that sooner or later something radi
cal mast be done to facilitate promotions, and It is
hels in most quarters now that the age-sn-grad<=>
i— '.re— eat., so called, possesses an advantage over
the numerous other schemes having the same ob
ject in view. This age-in-grade proposition stands
*.-•—• show of enactment, for the reason that ir is
favored by the Navy Department, but .t must net
be ir-a?iiied that the plan is without its critics, who
may oe able to defeat it when it comes to achiev
taT aWytlllUK in a legislative way. A \ the i"
5Sa t"his eppos-ition is not now considered suffi
cient to block the plans of the advocates o, the
measure. At any rate, it is intended to urge th*
plan or-. Congress as a means of obtaining in coin

dis'?^arg:ns: such duty aboard ship That is aie
only legislation which is contemplated.

BLOW METERS BACK.
Swindlers Use Bicycle Pumps to
■ Beat Gas Company.
Thr electric companies are not the only cor
porations b*»tnc: robbed of revenue by meter
swindlers, according to the Consolidated RS
Company. It became known yesterday that a
shrewd band of ;-wmdWs, by means of an im
provised circuit, were tampering with electric
meters so that the dial did not indicate a tithe
of the electricity consumed.
The gas* people are fare to face with th*> same
problem, and they have detectives at work on
the case One of the men they are after is said
to be the graduate of a technical pr-honi. Th«
6ch«me of the pas manipulators is said to be
exceptionally simple. According- to the report,
by using- a bicycle pump, the swindlers are abl*
to reverse the current operating the meter and
turn the dial backward. They collect on "-half
of the saving.
David Chatterton, an expert H^-trtrian. was
arrested on Tuesday for installing switches out
side of an electric meter and leading a wire
outside and around the meter, thus enabling the
consumer to defraud the company. Hi? arrest
was caused by the arrest of the manager of a
resort in 3Oth-st., who told the police thp full
detail? -•' he scheme.

USE U TUNED WIRES" NOW.
ALSO PIXK' MESSAGES.
Racing Syndicates (rather Their
11 Own News Quickly.
How the racetrack news is non collected and
furnished to poolrooras is no longer a secret.
Every detail of th» service as learned yester
day T*p to about a year ago the reports of
running races, as obtained hy poolrooms, -were
collected and distributed by employes of th* 1
Western Union Telegraph Company, but the
executive <-,>r>imitt*»--. of the board of directors
recommended that the company sever all busi
ness relations with poolrooms or race news
Th" recommendation was followed by a re
fusal of th» company to e tve th« syndicates and
poolrooms special wires Then th« company
cea,«pr] tn be a collector or distributer of race
track news, as formerly, and on Monday an
order tvas issued that no employe of the com
pany may in any way be identified with the
poolroom business. This last order brought to
a successful °nd efforts that had been made to
nave the company give up the business of sell
ing race news, and the work of gathering and
sending i* out T«a«! left in the bands of the
syndics re ?
This change means a locs to th« telegraph
company, ft is 'bought, of several million dollars
3 year unless a new tariff rate for message?
should be made for the syndicate. Ob the other
hand, the syndicate should h»v» thousands of
dollars to ft* credit at th<~ end of th° year, for
the service it furnishes is entirely satisfactory,
and is only slightly slower than under the old
order of things,
"nder the new system poolroom men have
learned much about preferred, or "pink." mes
sages, and the meaning of a new expression.
"tuned wires" Preferred, or "pink." messages
must be sent immediately over "tuned wires,"
that Is. wires that are clear and are connected
at all points between the pending and receiving
stations The expression "tuned wires" is prob
ably unknown at No. 195 Broadway, but that
is the term now used by poolrooms and syndi
cate men in referring to wires over which race
track news is sent.
The message* filed at the Gravesend track
yesterda3' by the syndicate men were received a
few moments after they were sent at the regu
lar station of the telegraph company to which
they were addressed. Nearly all of the mop
sages were addressed to the «ame station. At
the receiving station employes of the syndicates
took the messages from the operator and
hastened to a nearby building, in which the
Fyndioates have rooms fitted with many tele
phone booths. From these rooms the messages
were sent by telephone to the distributing sta
tions of the syndicates, and thence to the rooms
run by subscribers to the service. Thus the tele
graph company was only a "common carrier."
The charge for each message was at the regu
lar rate. 25 cents for ten words.
On Monday and Tuesday the poolrooms did
not get a description of any race, but yesterday
they had descriptions of each race run at
Graveeend and Fort Erie. Xo effort has yet
been made to obtain a Louisville service.
The h«a3 of one of the leading syndicates
said to a Tribune reporter last night, in speak
ing about the poolroom, situation: "Our tele
graph tolls each day amount to about >26, and
our total expenses every day to about $250."
FIGHTS FOR HUMMEL.
Mr. Xicoll Says He Has Good Rea
son for Asking Change of Venue.
After hearing argument yesterday Justice
Truax reserved decision on the application of
Abraham H. Hummel for a change of venue for
the trial of th*» charge against him of con
spiracy in the Morse-Dodge divorce case. De
Lancey Nicoll and John D. Lindsay appeared for
Mr. Hummel, while Assistant District Attorney
Sandford was in court for the District At
Mr. Xicoll reviewed the case from the time of
the Dodge divorce in 1599 He declared that
there was a grave doubt if Mr. Hummel could
pet a fair trial tri this county. He said that
since January, l»04, the case had received much
attention in the newspapers, and that it was
many times said that the defendants firm was
Involved, and that statements were made that
an indictment was expected long before the in
dictment was found.
After telling of his client's reputation Mr.
Nlcoll said of District Attorney Jerome's course
In the c»."
The very active prosecutors office has charged
us with delay as. to the trial of this case, ;^d
has contended that our perfectly right course
waa conclusive to our guilt. The learned Dis
trict attorney maintains tha r Hummel was
irui'ltv 'because he has been indicted He openly
declared that he regarded Hummel as a • rook,
■nd he has raid openly that he was guilty oi
thi? offence, and h- has reiterated it again and
In opposing the motion Mr. Pandford said that
there was not the slightest reason for the
change of venue in the papers presented to the
court, and that the defendant could not get a
fairer trial elsewhere than in this county He
said that Mr Nicoll's own review of the case
had shown it to be so complicated that no one
s*uld possibly have arrived at any conclusion
from Th reports primed as to the guilt or inno
cence of the defendant.
