(Special Correspondence of The Argus.)
Philadelphia Oct. a. A member of
the police force lure in Philadelphia
has just written a letter to the mayor
which has a distinct educational valuj
to anyone not familiar with the ways
of politicians in large cities.
Gang rule has prevailed in Philadel
phia for a good many years, and
threatens to continue for a good many
more. .The sewer contractors, the
pavement contractors, and others, are
in the saddle, and it seems impossible
to depose them. At every election the
ballot boxes are stuffed at the com
mand of the bosses. Following nearly
every election there is an investiga
tion, an indictment, a conviction, and
sometimes someone goes to jail. Hut
the "big chiefs" of Philadelphia's g. o.

national organization, are seldom

An election is coming on now. Three
hundred thousand dollars must bj
raised within a few days for campaign
purposes. Policeman 12. J. O'Keet'e
protests against the methods useu ty
the political bosses. In part, his let
ter reads as follows:
"Hon. John 12. Reyburn, Mayor of
Philadelphia. City Hall. Dear Sir: I

the first police district. I am 3:1 years
of age, and have a wife and three chil
