na Tracy a-sured the Assemblyman that the
cocrmen were aU rght. whereupon F. M.
Pesllng, a doorman himself, made a speech
to the effect tnat the doormtn oigtit to set
more pay and have more chance for promo
tlon. After he had finished Oen. Tracy called
in Mr. Uoo.ovelt.
The 1'resldei.t of the Police Board was full
( fight, but there vvasn't anybody to flaht
with. He started out by asserting that the
.revision for a four-headed commlsJIon was
i3tlillv vicious, became a four-headed
fummlwlon permitted divided responsibility.
Then he was opposed to slvlnethe Chief of
IVillce piwer that made htm. It he chose to
iBtrlsue with a slnale rneniber. virtually Irro
iwnslbl" to the board or to anbwly.
"ts Is DO'ilble at precnt." Mr. Roosevelt
tot It. and Mr. Parker nudged Mr. Grant, and
Mr. Hoosev'eU Insisted that If tbe commls
ilot sit cK to the determination to hare a four
suited sntem, then the Chief shuuld be made
ib sole executive and be responsible to the
Isror. At present he said It would be prac
tical!) Immlble to remove the Chief, no mat
ter how (llapleislnu tn the Commissioner, his
ccsduit might bo, and at the same time the
Commissioners, and not tbe Chief, aererespon
llDle fnr his conduct. Mr. Itoosevelt was also
opposed tJ Biting tbe Chief the power to eto
rrom'Ulon. or ralhor to the limiting of tbe
Uvd's power of promotion, to men recom
mended brthe Chlet. It lie couldn't getn
ilcgle headed commission, then he wanted a
three beaded one, with the power to act vetted
In the majtrlty. He concluded by denouncing
ailiase tn tbn charter under which the rehabll
lutlon of the station lodgtiiR house as stem
would be possible. "A festering monstrosity."
U called this sjstem. It had been rooted out
after thirty yearn of work, he aald. lie want d
itr. Jacoo A. tills to tell the commission what

nbmlt In writing a section to take the place ot
Unobjectionable one. ... . .
Comals'tnner Parker followed. He spoke In
fsrorof enlarclne the powers of the Chief,
lie believed the Chief sbou'd be the sole eiecu-
j Irs head of the department. Ills ideas were In
I iisct accord with the suecestlon of Mr. Hoose
rtlt, that all Doner and all lexoonelblllty
' ihosld be lodgetl In one turn, but he did not
i offer an) suggestion as to whom that one man
ihonM be responsible, though the presump
tion was that be should be responsible to the
board, as now the board would hae no other
satborlty to remove blm under tho new plan
tluin ll has now. Mr. Parker uent mure Into
the detail of the charter than did Mr. Hooie
tflt, and disclosed several minor defects and
Incootlttencle. He kept In sight all the time
He one argument that the Chief should have
Mle executive charge. He favored a bl-uartl-ua
or non-partisan board because he i dan-
' :r In terralttlne one man to hae absolute
.ontrol at elections. The temptation would bo
loogreat. he said. 11" also faored the keep
lag of the civil service examinations within
ths department and separate. trom an; central
board, a tbe charter oioposed. He pointed to
ths record of the past two years to support his
tlalm that the sstcm was better and more ef
fective when It was In the bands of men famil
lltr with Duller business rlnally he said
that the rv.-allcJ bi-partisan boird was. in
fict. essentially a non-partisan board, and no
deadlock that had occurred In the Iward so far
cosld be traced to political differences.
Mr. Hooievelt got another chance after Mr.
Parker had finished to eay that he thought It
would be better to take the civil sen Ice exam
inations nut of the hands of tbe department
shd pit them tn the hands of a central body.
Mr. Atidrws followed with a prepared
speech. He Jumped on tbe four-handea com
million Idea and said It was universally con
ceded that executive functions could best be
performed by a single nfllclal. He said:
"While the comparison Is not perfect, a great
police department resembles an army In Itaor
isstiMion, its discipline. Its esprit do corps.

ceeds thai ofmany divisions of our troops In

Senator Lexow came next and told hnsr the
bi-partisan commission as tt now is had come
to be. He referred to the Investigation and
the disclosures fiat led up to the passing ot the
present Ian, and insisted that under it the
board would always be non-partisan and not
bi-partisan, because the law said "not more
than two persons of the same political party"
should V on the commission. He aald that
undr the law n Mayor could appoint four re
formers and need.nnt appoint an) Republicans
or any Democrats. He asked whether If there
hail been a single-headed commission two
fears ago the election would have resulted as
Kranklln Pierce responded when representa
tives of ouslness organizations were called tor.
He opposed the bl-psrllsan system and de
manded a single-headed commlsilon, but he
advanced no arguments that were new.
The last speaker was ex-Judge Allison, who
said he appeared as a citizen who was proud
nf his city. His argument was on tne same
line as those of Mr. Lauterbach and Senator
Lexow. He dwelt particularly on tne danger
of a single-headed commission at election
times. He insisted that the power of the po
lice was altogether too great to be Intrusted to
a single heai. He said that he was a fit ra be
liever tn non-nartlsanshlp In local natters,
but that parties did exist and that people In
sisted on voting on party lines, and there waa
no getting nway from th fact. He Insisted
that nobody had pointed out a single evil that
had grown out of a four-beaded system or that
was likely to grow out of It,
UenJamln F. Blair, who favored the separa
tion of the Election Bureau and tbe Police De
partment, said he would submit his views in
writing, and the hearing was adjourned.
CHATHAM'S HIlEltnT SI A ID TRIAL.

Alderman Hall, counsel for Mr. Herbert

These are the main features of the annual
message ot Mayor Frederick W. Wurster of
Brooklyn to tho Board of Aldermen t
Uonds to the amount of $4,400,007.41 were is
sued during the year and $l,6&7,nai,01 re
deemed. Tax certificates aggregating $3,000,
000 were Issued and $700,000 redeemed. The
total gross debt on Dec. 1 was S07.030.S58.34
and the sinking fund Invested $5.072,100,0.1,
making the net debt $50,040,007.41. The aver
age tax rata for 1800 for the entire city Is 3.00
against U. 10 last year. The total assessed valu
ation of property is $500,340,807, an inoreaseof
$10,500,830 over the previous year. For the
first eleven months of tho year $3,338,050.04
arrears of taxes was collected.
During the year there wero oponed eleven new
school buildings and addition, to existing build
ings. Including one high school. The total num
ber of pupils on Oct. 31 was 137,571, an In
crease ot 8,1130 over the corresponding day last
Mayor Wurster congratulates the law depart
ment on having won fifteen of the sixteen cases
argued before the Court of Appeals.
Tho death rate waa 30.5 per 1,000 In an esti
mated population of 1,135.000, the deaths for
the first eleven months numbering 30,835.
Tho police force was Increased during the
year from 1,753 to 1,800. The arrests num
The Fire Department responded to 1,007
alarms, and the total losses amounted to $1,335,
007. There waa only one fire In which the loss
was over $100,000. Three firemen were kilted
In the discharge of their duties during the year.
The total uniformed force of the Fire Depart
ment Is 855.
Mayor Wurster, after outlining the work of
the Park Department, says:
"Of tho sum nf $3,410,000 originally appro
priated for county parka thero remains about
$80,000 unexpended. Through the purchases
mado the park area ot the city has been more
than doubled, and ample provision for a num
ber of years for the requirements of tbe city has
been made. The mileage of good roads for
driving and wheeling has been more than
doubled, and those permanent Improvements
add greatly to tbe attractiveness of llrookl) n as
a place of residence. I am strongly In favor of
the expenditure ot the balance remaining for
additional parks or playgrounds in crowded
quartera of tho city where no such breathing
places now exist, and I trust that thepubllo
sentiment already aroused upon this sub'Ject
may accomplish this result. There Is great
need of such addition to the small parks In our
r:reat city In quarters which have been neg
ected In the past."
On the question of providing for an Increase
ln the water supply. Mayor urster says:
"Tbe problem ot Increasing the wnler supply
has received much attention, and, while the
supply is adequate for some years to come, there
is neceesliy for action In the matter of increasing
It for the future. 1 ho average dally consump
tion for the tlrst eleven raunths of lrlllilwas
riU.017.H47, an Increase of about 4.000.000 gal
lons. The engineer of tbe water supply has
stated that 114.000,000 gallons per day Is a
conservative estimate of the water which could
be obtained from the present watershed on
Long Island without gotn into Suffolk county,
and that there would be times when we
could get 130,000.000 gallons. In such calcula
tions, however, the minimum amouutlsnlways
usod as a basic Kstlraallng the Increased con
sumption at 4,000,000 gallon each year, this
Increased supply of J4.UOO.U00 gallons would
last for about eight years. This la exclusive of
tho experiment with the deep-well suppl),
which are now being made, and by which seven
or eight million gallons per day are secured. If
In time It Is ascertained that these do not draw
from tho estimated supply given above, the
water pumped from thetu could be added to tbe
esltmale of 114.000,000 gallons and give us a
auptily for a number of years additional.
' We are using now about two-lbirds ot our
estimated available supply, and. from the best
Information I can gain. New orklsln a like
condition, and will be rrqulred to seek for a
new supniy about tbe same time. While there
la no fearuf any lacKof water In the Immediate
future, at the same lime tbe additional suppl)
required In a few yeara will no doubt have to be
taken from a lonr distance, and It will require
considerable time to procure It. I am heartily
In favor ot action being taken looking toward a
lasting supply. The proposition emanating
from ihe State Engineer and Surveyor, for se
curing water from the upper Hudson and Mo
hawk valleys and the Adirondack watershed
and supplying It to tbe cities along the Hudson
Itlver nud al Its mouth, appears the most feasi
ble that has been made, provided the Mate Is
willing to assume the expense of the original
Investment," , ,
Mayor Wurster gives In brief the details ot
the reports of the various departments. Includ
ing that of the bridge trusters, all of which hav e
been already published. He estimates tbe cost
to the city of removing the railroad tracks from
Atlantic avenue and constructing a subway,
after the itoilon sjsloin, al not more than
$1,000,000. ... j,
Mayor Wurster rays that the financial condi
tion ot the city would preclude the considera
tion al present of the municipal ownership of
gas or electrlo light plants, and adds:
"The amount of capital now Invested under
tho franchises granted by the city Is so great
that no undue disturbance of II should be con
templated." Mayor Wonder winds up his message with
this reference to the Greater New York:
"In the mailer of the consolidation ot our
city with New York, the question of pre entlng
the Impositlonnf any undue burden upon llrook
I) n Is un Important one. I directed attention to
tho fact that we pay nur taxes InadvuiHefortho
expenditures to be made, while New ork bor
rows tbe money forclty expenses from January
to October, when the taxes are paid, 'locontlnue
the two systems In tho consolidated eltv would
bo Impossible, and as New York cannot pay two
)earsrtaxe at oner. It will bo necessary for one
payment to bo omitted In Ilrooklyn. Ihe
proposition has been made that If wo pay
our tnxes this ear as usual. In lKttrl
wo will have no taxes to pay, and the
lint levy upon tho entire territory of
the Greater Sew York will fall due In October,
18110. Hut It seems tome wiser to omit any
piDinrnt of taxes In this city this year, except
lor county purposes, nnd then we will start even
with New York In the consolidated city. Other
wise, wu w 111 give the money collected this ear
tor tho use of the, consolidated city next year,
and yet nay our share of the Interest upon tho
amount to be norrowud by New York. 'In ar
range this matter, however. It would require a,
special act of the Legislature, as the pruposed
charter of the Greater New ork will not go
Into effect until Jan. 1. 1HIIH. .....
"The earning Into effect at the end of this
year of the consolidation of this city with New
York will doubtless make this the last annual
meksacoadilresied by n Mayor to the Common
Council of the city of Ilrooklyn. Afternsepa,.
rateexlstenca of more than sixty ysars the Indi
viduality of Ilrooklyn will be destroyed, and It
will be merged Into a larger city, becoming a
considerable part nf the metropolis of this
hemisphere. While the publlo will no longer
look to ou and to me to safeguard the Interests
of this community. It will be none the less neces
sary to see that those Interests receive proper
consideration and duo care In the multiplicity

MVPltBME COURT DECISIONS.
rear JnslKBseate of the Late Jn(. Parker
Ueerraled-A Lottery Case.
WABiilNciTof. Jan. 4. After a recess of two
weeks the Supreme Court of the United States
reconvened to-day and disposed ot a dozen or
more cases br opinion and otherwise. Anions:
them were four appeals In criminal cases from
judgments ot the late Judge Parker of the
Western District ot Arkansas, the court below
peine overruled in each case.
A new trial was granted James Mills, sen
tenced to death for assaulting Florence Hen
drix, a white woman In the Cherokee Nation,
because ot the unsatisfactory evidence of the
commission ot the act under conditions
which made It a crime. Henrr Starr, tho
notorious outlaw, sentenced to death for
the murder of Floyd Wilson, a white
man. In the Cherokee Nation, secured a
second reversal of sentence and it third trial
because ot the court's Instructions regarding
the inferencee to lie drawn br the J ury from the
fact that the defendant fled the Jurisdiction of
tbe court: Frank Carver, also In court for the
second time, cot a third trial upou tbe charge
of murdering a while woman, Anna Moledon,
because of the court's refusal to permit ills at
torney to Introduce statements mado by her In
conflict with her dylnc declaration nnd lending
In show thai the shooilni: was an accident.
Judge l'arker was ulsu overruled In another
capital criminal car, this time upon a Question
of Jurisdiction. Jrs nnd John Noltro were In
dicted, convicted, aud sentenced to death for
the murder in the ( herokee Nation of Fred
Ilutberford, alleged to he a white man and not
an Indian. Mr. Justice Drawer said tho
evidence clearly showed that ltutherford was
an Indian by marriage and adoption Into the
tribe, and therefore that the rederat courlr hud
no Jurisdiction. 'Ihe Judgment was reversed,
with instructions to deliver the defendants lo
the authorities of the Cherokee Nation. In t its
case the Supreme Court not onlv overruled
Judge l'arker on tho subject of ltutherford'
cltlenhlp. but also the opinion of It. t.
A)I) Atlurnev-tleneral of ihe Cherokee Na
tion. The case Is one of great Importance,
allecllng as It does tho right of tho defendant to
participate In the immense properly of tho
Cherokee Nation, nnd opening the door to the
oittranoo of many residents whom the Indian
authorities hold not to be cllUens.
Ihr efforts of counsel to secure a Judgment
from the Supreme Court upon the constitution
allty of the law for the sutpresslnu of lottery
traffic. In thu prosecution of Albert I., r ranee et
al. Indicted for conspiracy 10 violate tup law by
tratJlcklngln lottery slips and drawings betwseu
Cincinnati and Lovluglon, K). have come to
naught. The court for llio southern district of
Onlo found defendants guilt) and they appealed
.... inrr,n,i.fmirt nf the t'nlled hlnte. Tlio
case was aruued by Ml.. lames C Carter for the
defendants and by Assistant Allornet-dencral
VAbltnty for tho Ho eminent, their argument
belnulargely devoted to tho question of the
constitutionality of tho law. Hut, said Mr.
Justice I'eckhain, disposing nf thu case to-day.
tho court did not llud It neccssur) to pass
upon the constitutionality of tho law, for
In tho opinion of tho court the actscomplalnrd
of, tho carr) liiu of papers and books used In tho
lottery drawings, did not. within tho inranlng
of the statute, constitute an offence prohibited
by the statute. "'Ihe lottery." said the Justice,
"had already been drawn; the papers carried
bv the messengers were not then dependent
upon the event of any lottery. The language as
used In tho statute looks to the future. Tho
statute does not cov er the transaction, ond how
ever reprehensible the acts of the defendants
may be we cannot sustain a conviction on that
ground." The judgment of conviction was re
versed and the dlschnrge nf tho defendants or
dered. Mr. Justice Harlan dissented.
'Iho Aksistant Attorne)-tlencral says that. In
view of the decision. It will be necessary tn
ameud the statute beforo It can be rnadeotfec
live, Irrespective of the question of its consti
tutionality. . .... , . .
1 he construction put by theBupreme Court of
Florida upon tho law of that State, requiring
local agents of express companies doing busi
ness In that State tn pay a licen.e. was affirmed
by the Supreme Court of the United States
to-day, the opinion being read by Mr. Justice
l'eckliam. F. 11. Osborne, agent at Jacksonville
of the Southern Comiany. refued to pay the
tax on the ground that Us Imposition was in
violation nf the commerce clause of the national
The penalty was enforced against him, and
the huprenm Court of the State sustained the
local court In lis action. In passing upon the
case the Supreme Court of I lorldasald that the
purpose of tho law was tn Impose a tax upon the
right to do business Intlii State only, and that
If ibe companies did not choo.o to carry on the
local business the courts could not compel them
tndoso, but thu lax would have tn he paid Just
the same. " Upon that construction of the stat
lite by the Supreme Court of the State," said
Justice I'LCkhnm, "which this court uiust ac
cept, the Judgment against llvboriin was a prop
er one. and must be adlrnii'd."
'1 lie Missouri I'aolllo Itallrnad Company and
the SU Louis and Min Franclsto Ilallroad Com
pany attacked the constitutionality nt tho law
of Missouri, which give properly owners tho
right to recover damages of railroad corpora
tions fur the destruction oi property caused ny
Are communicated from their locomotives, rhn
grounds were that tho law contravened Ihe '
constitutional prohibition against Impairing
contracts, for tbo reason that tho charters of
the companies, giving them the right to mo
locomotives, wero granted prior to tho pas
sage of the act In question: that It de
nied the equal protection of the laws tn
the companies named, and that It was a
virtual taking of their property without dun
procens of law. Mr Justice Uray, for tho court,
held that tlm law was mil a violation of an) of
those provisional that It was a proper exriclse
nf the legislative power, and that 'he railroad
company' right to be protected In the use of lo
comotives, implied In their charters, was no
greater than the rights of citizens in have their
property protected aKalnst the raraga-i of ilro.
The Judgimnt of the Statu Supremo Court sus.
talning the law was therefore afllrmed.

"Whatever Their Height the First Floor
Must He Fireproof.
Corporation Counsel Scott has sent an opinion
to Superintendent Constable of the llulldlngs
Department, construing section 4B0 nf the Con
solidation act which, as amended In 1(102, sayat
" Kvery building hereafter altered to be occu
pied as a hotel, and every building hereafter
erected or altered to be used as a lodging house,
and every tenement houe, apartment house,

a cellar, hereafter erected or altered to bo occu
pied by one or inure families on any floor abo e
tho first, shall have the llrst floor above the
cellar or loweit story constructed llreproof with
Iron or steel beams and brick arclie."
Air. Scott advises Mr. Constable that the
"Jlve-story" provision has nothing to do with
the hotels and lodging houses specified ln the
first two claies. and that they. Irrespective of
their height, must have their llrst floors fire
proof. Mr. r-cntt says that the mere change In the

will not bring It within the purview of the sec
