An Order Read to the Sqnads In All th Station ffonses Assuring Them of Pro tection From Ferseentlon Tl'hleh Might Follow a Kefneal to Contribute. New York, Pent. . Members of the police department have been warned noc to contribute to a fund to influence legis lation at Albany. It was reported sevoral da-VK ago that the policemen of this city proposed to form an association and con tribute fSO.OOO to prevent rform police legislation. The association, it was said, was to be composed of patrolmen, rounds men and sergeants. Sergeants were to pay an initiation fee of ff0, roundsmen $25, patrolmen $'J0. In udditlon to this there were to be dues of from f to f 10 a month. Police Commissioners Roosevelt and Parker dec i led to inreatigate the mat ter. They had heord that the fund wag to he used in j art to eleot members of the legislature pledged to favor the police. It is not known what these commission ers discovered, but they had a long con ference yesterday afternoon, and in the evening they called in Acting Chief Con lin and instructed hiin to send out an or der, which was read at midnight Inst night in all the police stations in the city by commanders of preolncts to their men. The members of the force were warned apainst subscribing to any such fund. What the Order s!eaas. It was not intended that the pnhlio should know of this order at present. It became known, howoTer, before Commis sioners Roosevelt and Parker left police headquarters at T o'clock. Comuiitsionwr Roosevelt was noncommittal about the matter, but CornmisiUiuer Parker reluo tantly admitted that the order hitd been issued. He said he did not have a copy of the order and could net remomber its exact wording, but that In substuuee it was: 1 "Members of the police force need not contribute to any fund they do nut wish to. They need not give any uioiiuy to auy association to which thoy may belong for any puriieno. ilemhers are waruod that thry murit not ho connected with any movement or association which proposes to attain an object whioh :ui;;hi be con sidered infamous." It will be soun that the order does not directly allude to the corruption fund.

" Commissioner Parker said he knew there were many criminals on the, forca who feared punishment for past misdeeds.
