department would receive a big shaking

All the changes weic made upon the

given for the reductions In rauk and pay

It Is stated by the authorities that the

The publication of these changes, a full
account of which appeared only in The
Evening Times yesterday, was the fir.-t
intimation that the men concerned had ot
what was happening. Many of those re
duced are much worked up over the affair
and charge -sof favoritism arc made by some
of the ni'.-u affected.
It is alleged that competent men have
been put down while others of small merit
are promoted ia their stead.
The promotion from private of the second

small difference in pay, the Increase being
only $5, but, the duties of the sergeant are

A6 he progressed in his investigation of
the department, Commissioner Wight came
to realize that one ot the chief handicaps
to the efficiency of the force was the
retention in the service of men whose
ability to do good service was inter
fered with by age. Accordingly, some
time ago, he instructed the police sur
geons to muke a thorough examination of
every man on the force and make a re
iwrt of those whom they deemed too old
or physically Incapacitated for active
It was at first intended to retire the
men who should be thus reported, but
when the lists came in it was found that
the number would be far too great. Not
only wa the police fund from which the
pensions are paid too small to stand the
retirement, of more than two or three
men, but itwas judged that the department
itself would be crippled by the withdrawal
of so many men, who, if they were not very
acme, wcrr a$ least experienced. So,
after consultation with Major Moore,
Commissioner Wight decided that these
men should be placed in details which
would not be so arduous and receive cor
responding reductions in their pay.
This, said Commissioner Wight yesterday
afternoon, was the reason for all the
reductions. The policemen themselves,
however, claim that this cannot be en
tirely so and they point out several cases
where young men have been reduced ap
parently without reason. It is noticeable,
though perhaps only a coincidence, that a
a large proportion of those who have re
ceived lower ratings are drivers of patrol

Robey and Volkiuan.aro from the Seventh
precinct, while Johnson has been in the
detective bureau. Their reduction in rank
bad been decided upon several days ago,
and Major Moore's plan to fill the vacancies
was to have the lieutenant of each pre
cinct submit the name or the man under his
command whom he deemed best fitted
for promotion. Nine names were thus
handed in and out or these nine Major
Moore, arter carefully going over the
merits and claims of each, selected the

They wul lth probably be assigned to

sergeants, to fill the two vacancies created
there by reductions.
The selections for tho new sergeants
are generally considered most excellent.

Itecreation at Clmpel Point.
That a Chapel Point day Isa meiry one
has become a fixed fact with any number
or folks. This Is plainly bhown by the
boat loads ot guests that take advantage
of each trip made by the Hlver Queen.
But there's nothing surprising about the
popularity of the place. There is every
thing there that can be found at any of
the other resorts, and a good many at
tractions that others do not boast of.
The sail alone Is enjoyable enough to
crowd the boat. The Point Is fifty-five
miles from town, and the run Is made
in about four hours. A cool delightful
trip, where the scenery is pleasing to the
eye, and the breezes comforting. Opce on
the ground and the sport has only begun.
Xo finer fishing and crabbing could be
wished for than Is found at Chapel Point,
and the facilities for salt water bathing
offered by the excellent beach tends to
keep the water fairly alive with bathers
during the four hours the Queen lies at the
wharf. Dinners may either bo had in the
Canr on the steamer or atlhe hotel. Ex
cellent service at cither place. The home
trip at night is especially pleasurcable.
It stamps itself as a most en joyable closing
to a happy day. That is the undivided
opinion of the guests who are loath to leave
the steamer which has afforded them so
pleasant an outing. These trips will be
made each Tuesday, Thursday and Suu
day throughout the season, leaving theclty

been sympathetic, but the grain and stock

whimsical notion that the falling ot .1
Friday on tlio 13th of the month was of
itself an omen of evil. Sucii an argument
Is evidence of the paucity of their claims.
.H any rate, the room traders were more
aggressivtiiu their attacks upon the market
than they have been for many days, and
also nmrp succosful. The decline In wheat
was ascribed to a falling off in the exrwr
demand for tl-at cereal, and foreign houses
wer reported free sellers! This is not tin
natural in view of the rapid advance In
that market , but the withdrawal of foreign
orders need not be regarded as aught but
temporary, since the latest estimate of the
F.uroj-eau requirements for the season by
a conservative London trade journal places
the total at 102 000,( 00l;ushels.

The stock market yesterday had more
the appearance ot breaking than at any
tlmo since tho beginning of the boom.
Heretofore on one or two days there has
been fairly large fluctuations backward and
forward, feverish and with not much
strength apparent behind, them, but all
day yesterday after a small spurt in tho
morning there was determined and large

strong holders of the market .were selling

goes down again tho, first thing thl-j
ifioinlng for a point or two It Is probable,
that a atnmpcde wil follow. Three or
four points would scare the publlo and
turn them in the other direction.
Tho chances are, however, that the large
holder ot he market, the Vandcrbilts
and the other holders ot investment stock,
will notallcw a bad reaction, and that even
it there Is a drop ot a point or so In
tho afternoon, it will toon be recovered
and the market will continue on upward.
The drop yesterday was long continued,
and in many stocks It went a long way

There Is some bear talk on Tobacco
which, !t to said, is stimulated by in
siders whp do not believe the stook should

crning a stock like Tobacco frequently
have the opposite effect fiom that in

There are lumors about that Sugar is
to ha another spurt. Onn hundred and

not very far from that figure, and friends

mark will be reached In a very short
time. The dividend ot the company is to
be declared in a few weeks, and it is the
uFiial custom of the Insiders of that out

while the assessment will interfere some
what with the general buying it will not
hinder the stiong buying which they want.
They claim that it will be for theinterest
or the reorganization syndicate to put

and it is not unreasonable to believe that
the enhancing value of tho preferred will
reduce the actual assessment on the com

States in about half the total mileage
August returns so far show an increase of
11 per cent over last year. In all the
great industries a large demand for
products appears, with strong speculation
