WILLIAM F. BAKER, Commissioner.
This -Simply worded order, copies of
which were «"nt to every precinct and
jj-.pection commander in the greater
city yesterday, spread consternation and
confusion last night in the ranks of the
mtn affected by it. Patrolmen, ser
geants, lieutenants, captains and inspec
tors all had something to hazard In the
■m of a guess as to the true import of
the order and what its affects would be.
On one point there was a unanimity
of opinion: everyone in the department
us? Hill that the order would cause
a state of chaos in the ranks of the po
lice. The number of men affected by the'
order is 203, and the great majority of
them have never been in the confine
ment of a uniform. Men who entered
the 'department as plainclothes mci»,
and have never been anything else, were
as- far "up in the air" last night as any
ariator ever got.
Th( mere idea of patrolling the street?

conference held with Commissioner
Baker abont three weeks ago by Mayor
GEyr.i ' On that occasion the Mayor
told the Commissioner that he thought
there were too many men in plain

suggested that they might better be em

he wanted detectives who could "de

Gaynor and Commissioner Baker, the
department experienced the throes of a

ter had ended there. Just how far these
red in th«ir d«flniuon fii t:.e true
import of the Mayor's conference with
the Police Commissioner, was proved
by yesterday's order.
In every precinct throughout the
greater city it was the same story-
Captair.s. when asked what they were
going to do about it. shrugged their
shoulders, spread their feet and looked
out of the windows. One or two among
them were more communicative, and un
loosened sufficiently to say that tbey
could not properly police their precincts
without plainclothes men. What could

In the memory of the oldest member of
the department the plainclothes man
has been an Institution. His loss will
be a hard blow to inspectors and cap
tains. These men have always had the
absolute right to place any of their uni
formed force in plain clothes, and have
generally carried them along w r ith them
•Risen they changed to new commands.
As for the men themselves, who will
con uniforms for the first time to-night,
in many cases, they are already sending
IB applications for "sick leave," with the
tope that the trouble may blow over
before they report back for duty. Sev
eral of them confided to friends last
night, that they had forgotten how to
do patrol duty. Others hustled to get
fitted for new uniforms, since they had
far outgrown those that were formerly
only a loose fit— before they landed their
jobs as plainclothes men. 5 •■""
One of the old guard of police inspec
tors. who has witnessed many changes
b» the department, dissented from the
general run of opinion last night when
be said: "I think the new order is a
good thing. It will be the first time in
twenty- five years that the responsibility
for suppressing gambling and disorderly
bouses has been lifted from the shoul
o*ts of precinct and inspection district
commanders. Now we can devote our
whole. time to doing regular police duty,
and If: the Detective Bureau take care
of the rest of the criminals."
The game inspector said he understood
Mayor Gaynor Intended to establish dif
ferent equads at Headquarters, the duty
of which would be to take charge of cer

ly trained in the work to which it is
cetailed. This plan will not take effect
immediately, the inspector said, but as
soon as possible the necessary additions

False Tales of Bosses at Albany
Call Forth Declaration.
[By Tfleurraph to The Tribune.]
Albany. June 21.— A rumor was started
through the Capitol to-day by anti-
Hughes men which for a time caused
some disquiet among advocates of direct
nominations. The story was passed
about among members of the Legislature
that Assemblyman Merritt. the majority
leader and one of the most powerful of
the Woodruff-Barnes-Wadsworth co
terie, had just had a talk with Collector
Loeb, and that the Collector assured
him that ex-President Roosevelt had no
interest in the direct primary fight, but
on the contrary felt that the passage of
the Cobb bill would redound more to the
glory of Governor Hughes than to the
welfare of the Republican party In the
This tale was industriously fed to
doubtful Assemblymen, and in spite of
Mr. Roosevelt's declaration upon his ar
rival in New -York that he would not
immediately take a hand In politics, the
story was made to do duty as evidence
that Mr. Roosevelt, or at least Mr. Loeb,
one of his closest friends, who was sure
to reflect his views, -was in harmony
with the anti-Hughes bosses in their de
termination to end the special session
without giving the people any substan
tial measure of direct primaries in ac
cordance with the Governor's recom
Collector Loeb, when his attention was
called to the rumors circulated in Al
bany yesterday, made absolute and em
phatic denial of their truth. "I have not
laid eyes on Mr. Merritt or talked with
him for a year," he said, 'and I have
made no statements to anybody that Mr.
Roosevelt did not favor direct primaries.
Being busy with my duties as a federal
official. I have sought to avoid taking
any part in this controversy over a stato
matter, but personally I favor the Cobb
bill and hope it will be passed."

GOMEZ FEARS' A REVOLT
Steamer Purchased — Dissatis
faction in Venezuela.
Fort-de-France, Martinique, June 21.
—The Venzulean government has pur
chased the steamer Ville de Tanger from
the French Transatlantic Steamship
Company. The steamer sailed for
Trinidad to-day in company with the
Venezulean cruiser General Salom,
which brought here the officials who ar
ranged the purchase.
The purchase of a steamer by the govern
ment of Venezuela is the first outward
sign of serious apprehension that an effort
is soon to be made to depose President
Juan Vicente Gomez, the successor of Gen
eral Clpriano Castro.
General Gomez took charge under the
most favorable conditions, the enemies of
Castro overlooking the previous close com
mercial and official relations of the two
men and using all their efforts and Influence
in support of Gomez. Several of the po
litical leaders subordinated their own am
bitions, not so much because they believed
that Gomez was the man best equipped to
take the helm as because he was the most
expedient candidate. This brought about a
political amalgamation the strength of
which had never been equalled in Venez
uela. . •
There is, however, a growing conviction
that Gomez has not lived up to the stand
ard set for him. The dissatisfaction with
his administration has been rapidly spread
ing. General Nicolas Rolando, Second
Vice-President, is practically a prisoner in
Caracas. He is not in jail, but is re
strained from leaving the capital. General
Rolando, a man of great military prestige,
was an implacable enemy of Castro and
was ready to lead a revolution against him
when Gomez took up the reins of govern
ment. His brother. General Armando Ro
lando, is president of one of the states In
Venezuela, It Is now reported that Gomez
fears General Nicolas Rolando. Another
man who la said no longer to hold the
Gomez government in high esteem is Gen
eral Jose Manuel Hernandez (El.Moclio).
He is now In Europe. General Hernandez
is the leader of the Conservative party.
When President Gomez recently recon
structed his Cabinet he appointed only
Liberal*, -leaving the Conservatives out in
the cold. This action was regarded as a
violation of the propaganda of patriotic
amalgamation, and other signs of dissen
cion are thought to indicate the possibility
of another revolutionary movement in
Venezuela, within the next six months.
House Fire Brigade Makes Short
Work of Flames.
Two awnings on the 59th street side
of the Hotel Plaza caught fire about
10-30 o'clock last night, but the names
were quickly subdued. The first awning
to burn was one on the fourth floor.
The hotel management knew nothing
about it until a passerby ran in and told
the clerk that the hotel was on fire.
The house fire brigade armed itself
with hand grenades and extinguishers,
and using the special "lire" elevator,
hastened up to the suite nearest to the
burning awning. The blazing canvas
was ripped from the framework, but in
doing bo the men dropped a piece that
was afire on the awning immediately be
low, and that one had to bo torn away.
Guests on the 59th street side .wit-;
nossed the spectacle of the fire brigade
at work as also the cabmen and chauf-
who have stands in front of the
three hotels which fd.ee Central Park
plaza. The damage was trifling.

[By TVlegrnph to The Tribune.]
Albany, June 21. — The bi-partisan alli
ance of anti-Hughes Republicans and
Tammany Hall Democrats still main
tains ite hold on the Legislature.
AVith William Barnes, jr., fn the Sen
ate clerk's room to-day, and Senator
Grady, of Tammany, running the Senate,
while Speaker Wadsworth, commanding
the Assembly allied force?, delivered re
markable rulingrs, the present supremacy
of the bi-partisan "Old Guard" was evi
dent. Equally evident is their intent to
prevent the enactment of a direct nom
inations law and any changing of the
graft investigation resolution or to die
in the defence of the existing order of
Also it is evident that this Legislature
will do nothing to be construed as patri
otic in its broad sense, or progressive,
unless kicked into it. The necessary im
petus can come from two sources —
Oyster Bay and Washington- To be ef
fective it will have to be direct and
forcible. The Senate is fairly responsive
to public sentiment. There the Cobb bill
probably will be repassed and a thor
oughgoing inquiry into corruption may
This easily could be done through a
Senate caucus. Whether one will be
called is somewhat doubtful. Progrcs

the urgent need for one, and at present
he is inclined to call one on his direct
nominations bill. Progressive Republi
cans hope that the corruption inquiry
may be included in the matters for con
Assembly Is Defiant.
But the Assembly under itß present
leadership cannot be expected to pass a
direct nominations bill or accept a real
investigation resolution. Appeals to the
party spirit of the three or four Repub
licans who control events in that House
are hopeless. It may be they are abso
lutely blind Ho things patent to other
Republicans; it may be they refuse to
believe, though seeing. It may be, as
progressive Republicans assert, that they
are so intensely self-centred and selfish
as to set themselves above all considera
tions of party welfare, either in the state
or the tiational phase of the situation.
The facts are plain and easily under
stood. Though direct nomination Re
publicans expect the Cobb bill to be re
passed by the Senate, they feel certain
that it will be defeated by the old
Meade-Grady combination of Republi
cans and Democrats unless a new cau
cus holds the Republicans together
If direct nominations men obtain the
necessary signatures for a caucus call in
the Assembly, the Wadsworth-Merritt-
Phillips Republicans say they will not
go into that caucus. The mere fact that
the direct nominations men could force
the calling of a caucus there would mean
they could control it. Declarations by
the anti-Hughes men that they would
atay out of the Republican caucus are
tantamount to declarations that they
would unite with the Tammany Demo
crats, as has been done often on other
matters, to defeat direct nominations
Republicans in and out of the Legis
lature are urging the Republican ma
jority to act now in such fashion as to
ghow the people that the party is worthy
of continuing in charge of political af
fairs in the state. And while that is
being done those Republican legislators
roughly characterized as anti-Hughes
men are on the verge, in both houses, of
re-enacting the Meade-Grady specticle
in even more crude detail.
Many Vague Rumors.
It is known that this state of affairs
Is causing the gravest concern to Presi

He was Benjamin James, fifty-fight

Girl Changed Her Mind After

Owens, wife of a >Jew York college man,
whose father is reputed to be a million

tm June 14. The nws did not reach here,
however, until to-day, which was the
day on which she was to have been
married to Assistant Surgeon Alfred Lee
Clifton, United States navy, attached to
the battleship Michigan.
When Miss Cameron reached New
York she changed her mind, and Owens,
who was to have been a guest at the
Clifton ceremony, took Clifton's place
When Miss Cameron was sixteen years
old Owens proposed to her, but because
she was so young she did not accept
him, according to her mother, who is
Mrs. Ward Baldwin, wife of a prominent
civil engineer of this city. They difl not
meet again until Miss Cameron went to
New York to marry Clifton, who was
formerly examining surgeon at the
naval recruiting station in Cincinnati.
Several months ago he was assigned to
active duty in the Atlantic fleet. He was
about to start on a two years' cruise,
and he wrote to his fiancee suggesting
that they marry before he started on his
long voyage. Accompanied by her
mother, Miss Cameron went to New
York. The marriage was to have taken
place at the Hotel Astor.
What caused Miss Cameron to change
her mind so suddenly is not known.
"She found out things that she did not
know before," her mother says. The
wedding took place on the approximate
day and at the approximate hour which
were to have seen the marriage of Clif

Owens's parents are in Europe, and
do not yet know of their son's marriage.
