Hearing Charges Abolished.
BOARD'S FIRST OPEN SESSION
Officer Cowue's Complaint Against
a Comrade Off Ills Heat to Get
a Cup of Coffee Mrs. Chapman's
Troubles "With u Colored Patrol
man A Debt Case Settled.
For years past the proceedings of the
police trial board have been in the nature
of a terics or deep, dark secrets. Only
the captain and two lieutenants, compris
ing the board; a stenographer;, the accused
patrolman, his counsel and the witness
tesUrylng were admitted Into the star
chamber during a hearing.
Commissioner Wight has changed all this.
He recently came to the' conclusion that a.
policeman in error should not be shielded'
from publicity any more than a citizen in
error who Is tried In the police or in any
other court lie-furthermore concluded that
if the wrongdoing? of the officers were
ventilated openly and .exposed to the
public gaze through the medium or the
newspapers those officers would be more
careful in the future.
Accordingly, when the epen sessibn of
the trial board was held at Lieut. Kellcy's
station, yesterday forenoon, the former
air or mystery was gone, and the doors
and windows ot the squadroom, in which
the sitting was held, were thrown wide
.The members of the board looked cool
in their summer uniforms, nnd appeared
grateful for the Commissioner's order
which docs away with being tightly
clou-tod la an repressive atmosphere, with
policemen on guard to pievent any of the
proceedings fiom leaking out.
For the first time since the open order
was issued, reporters of the picnS were

were read Capt. Vernon nt-lccd:
"Aie you guilty or not guilty?"
"I plead guilty to Leing In the lunchroom
and ofr my I eat Tour minutes, but not

Policeman Cowne tcsliried that Mr.
Henidon came upou his (Cowno's) beat

After testimony by I'oUccman Kenny
the matter was taken under advisement.
The second case was one or debt.
Then Itobert L. Carroll, a cotord pa
trolman, was arraigned by Lieut. Swin
dells. He was charged by Mrs. Mar
garet Bowie Chapman with Intoxication,
neglect or duty and using profane lan
guage toward the complainant. The

The specifications btated that, Carroll was
so much under the influence of liquor on
the night of June 3 that he railed and

Policeman Carroll, attended by his coun
sel. Mr. Oscar Nauck, -was in attendance.
Aftei a number of witnesses for the prose
cution had been sworn Mrs. Chapman In
troduced her testimony by stating:
"Officers, 1 have no ill-reeling towards
,him as a man, (meaning the accused, but
I hrve been driven to take action against
him as an officer"
She Ftated that she came homo -ne
evening and saw Carroll surrounded by
a ctowd or youths, among them her sou,
Phil She asked the policeman:
"What has my boy done?"
"I've warned these boys before," Car
roll replied, "and I'm going to arrest every
d one of them."
Mrs. Chapman said that the colored
patrolman emphasized his threat by flour
ishing liis arms and club, anil then added:
"Your boy Phil, cursed a colored mau."
"What has all this to do with the case?"
asked Lieut. Eerfner, as the complainant
Marted to bring out some irrelevant mat
ters. -"He raid he -would arrest every boy on
Caroline street," continued Mrs. Chap
man, "if he had to go to their houses
and take them out of bed."
Being asked about the charge that Car
roll "was intoxicated, the complainant sad:
'His bieath smelled of liquor. I was
sin prised, as I did not know you allowed
the officers to drink."
"We don't -want your opinion, tnadame,"
tatd a member of the trial board.
"He aleo rolded hii arms and glared at
me," continued Mrs. Chapman, "and lus
manner was lasolent."
"Did you see him stagger?" asked Lieut
"He did not walk any too straight."
Mrs. Chapman stated that she saw Car
roll again, with his hat ou the back or his
head. He was walking along muttering o
himself, and she ConcludeJ he was in

Quarterly Session Debates the
Division of the Convocation.
PROPOSED CHANGES DEFEATED
Resolutions Dividing the DIocuko
Into Convocations Discussed und
Voted Down-To Ho Continued us
nt Present Willi Yearly Meetings
ut Washington List of Delegates.
The quarterly session or the convocation
or the Episcopal diocese ot Washington was
held yesterday at the pio-cathedral of St.
Mark. The meeting was opened at 10
o'clock with a prayer and litany service
of an "hour's duration. Kev. Thomas S.
Childs, D. D., conducted the service and
ndmlnlhtcrod holy communion to the
clergy and laity present. He was assisted
by Rev. Charles Hayes, ot St. Mark's, who
lead the csplsUc, and by the sub-deueou,
who read the gospel.
The devotional aervlce was largely at
tended by the membeiH ot the congrega
tion, who likewise remained and watched
the pioceedings or the am vocation
The business or the session wnu taken
up at 11:30 o'clock; Rev. Thomas 3
Childspreslded over the meetingahdean.and
Rev. Arthur S. Johns was the secretary.
Rev, J. H. Elliot, S T. D., offered a
resolution to suspend the rules of the
convocation bo as to admit the laity that
were present to virtually represent their
respective parishes that had not been
duly accredited. The resolution was car
ried by unanimous consent.
The report ot the archdeacon was read,
and many Instances of progress In the
various parishes were cited. He had
visited thirty churches in four counties.
He said that the point of greatest i,er
cst was the recent reopening ot the hlttorlc
old church at Bladensburg.
The question to be discussed was that
or tlie division or the convocation into sev
eral parts. The convocation has not au
thority In the matter a"t all, as this only
belongs to the work or the annual diocesan
convention, but it was desired to voice
the sentiment or the clergy present, by
recommending a certain plan to the com
mittee In charge, to be presented to the
Rev. Thomas A. Johnstone, D. D., de
livered the address of the day. He said, in .
part: "The opposition to the recommenda
tion of the committee on cauvas wai not vo
any extent a sentimental expression or at
tachment to an institution or many yearn'
existence in the old diocese or .Maryland,
nor a deliberate judgment upon the gener.il
quesltoiior thcvalueor convocation. It was
ntmply the very general, ir not unanimous,
desire or the members r the convocation
that a bona fide erfort slwuld be made In
the line of division or modification before
seriously considering its abolition.
"It was in the nature of a plea for
such a deliberate, well-considered treat
ment of the subject -as would enable the
next annual convention to dispose of ic
definitely In such a manner as would
be satisfactory to both the conservative
and the progressive sentiments of the
dioceses. It is hoped that the discussion
will furnish to the special committee ap
pointed to report on the question of
convocation to the 'next annual con
vention some clear indication of what
is desired and what Is most practicable
in tl.e modification or the present con
vocatloual system of the diocese. Some
of the possible ways In which the division
may be made are:
"We may make what would seem the
most natural division by setting orf the
Dhtrict ot Columbia as one convocation
and the Tour Maryland counties of the
dioeese as another, 'lins wouiu lie un-de.-ira'iler
as it would mean a separation
or city from county without any com
penKiting advantage to cither. An entirely
urban convocation would be a diocesan
solecism There is not one convenient
center of the Tour counties which would
be accessible to clergv and laity of the
different parishes where convocatlonal
meetings could be held, nnd the visitation
work by the archdeacon would be attended
to with much Inconvenience. Ah a meeting
place Washington would be much more
convenient for the villages than any f
the townsnnd villages within their hounds "
At the conclusion of Mr. Johnstone's
address, n resolution recommending the
division or the convocational system was
Introduced, as follows:
"That this convocation recommends the
division ot the diocese into three convo
cations, one to be conterminous with the
District of Columbia; tlie second , or north
ern, to be composed of Montgomery
canity and the parishes In Prince Georges
county along the B. & 0. Railroad; the
third, or southern, to be composed of the
remaining parishes in Prince George's
county and of St. Mary's and ChaTles
itt'v. Charles E. Buck offered a substi
tute, providing that the convocation be
divided into three, four or five deaneries,
as the convocation should see fit to se
lect. A long discussion followed, which was
participated in by Dr. Elliot, Dr. Buck,
Dr. Williams, Dr. Johnstone, Mr. Meloy
and others. Atl o'clock Junch was .served.
pending ii continuation ot the discussion.
At2 o'clockthe session was resumed, and
Mr William A. Meloy ofrered a resolu
tion as an amendmenuthat the diocese be
divided into two convocations, eacli of
which should include a portion of Wash
ington. Ilr. Albert R. Stuart, D. D., moved that
the whole matter be referred to the com
mittee now in charge of the subject, to re
port at the fall meetijigof the convocation,
but this was subsequently withdrawn. A
vote was finally taken on the resolutions
of Dr. Buck and Mr. Meloy, and each was
Dr. Elliott then-proposed as an amend
ment to his resolution that fdfir or five
rural deaneries buestabllshed.atthe plea-sure
of the bishop. This was carried, but his
original resolution, when taken up, was'
voted on In sections and lost.
Rev John A. Aspinwall introduced n
resolution recommending that the con
vocation he continued as before, with a
yearly meeting in the fall, and that suita
ble provision be made for the transporta
tion of all members ot the diocese, and was
Tlie following: officers were elected:
