A Judge Flops Over to Xomanismlhe Detective 1 once System Details of tfie Ftnkerion De tfctwt l ottre Ajencylts Iheory and Prac-ice-oM( a Works, and by what Kules Jhe Cardozo txnsation Injunctions Granted oy Wholesale. Nbw Yoek, July 6. One of our Demo cratic pema ol Judites who, withal, was once a touccaneer on the hittu seas has made himself, lor 'the manjeth time, talked about, by making a loud bid last Sunday tor the Iiiah Gaiholic Tote at the next election. In order to bo more In lavor with the HibcrniRn lctnent, he has lut ratified his conversion Irom Protestantism to Komanmm, by switchm;? off under the con firming hand ol Archbishop McCloskey. In these degenerate days there is nothing to which men, kiBt to all si nte ol honor ar d &harae, will not turn for the sake ol oitice. There is nothing bo sacred that they will not pollute it with their unholy hands lor the purpose of making their political ends meet, and that this Is only another instance of this kind ol thing, the previous character of the Judge referred to suQiciently attests. ' Another term of ourcrlmlnul court the Court of General Sessions ended last week. Notwith standing the very long calendar, and the occur rence ol muny extensive swindles, robberies, and irauds, not a case has been brought to justice through the instrumentality of the much-lauded and well-ad vcrtised "detectives." The truth is, our detective police is as absolute a fraud upon this corr.ruunitv as any organized band ot cor luptiot.iste could well be. This has been iully . evinced by the performances rpsrecting the two or three great bond robberies, about which so much has been said and no little done. In Btrauge contrast with wnnt is called the energy of our detective police, all the criminals who are well known, and who happen to be brought into court, are brought thither by citizens, or police in uniform, or both. If Cardozo would isue an injunction restraining the Metropolitan Detec tive Police lrom operating on the credulity of our citizens, a great deul of crime in this city would at once suspend, and criminals not able to withstand temptation would have to leave the city, or take an express train to Sing Sing prison. There is, however, one man who has demon strated to the country that, in order to be suc cessful detectives, men espousing that proles sion must be honest, and also zealous for justice. This personage is Mr. Allen Puikerton, a Scotch man, who began his detective career in Chicago, and through many diliicultics and discourage ments has at lenvth establisned one of the most reliable, thorough, and successful bodies of dm"; erect detectives which has ever been brought into be'iig in our own or any other c iimtr.y. "What is known as the "stool-pigeon" system mis Pinkertnu detective etablisbment ignores and contemns. Assuming the modest title of "National Police Apency," it sets Itself forth as an individual and private enterprise, and is not in any way connected witn or controlled by any municipal corporation or governmental autho rity. 1c wai established for the ourpose of pre venting and detecting crime. The detection of crime is accomplished by means ot a quite com plete sjstem ot branch ngencies in the various cities ot the United States, which are in connec tion with the Central Otlice lu Chicago. Only euch business is undertaken as is strictly legitimate aud right; and then only for the pur pose cl lurthering the ends of justice, and bringing criminals to punishment. In his pamphlet oi instructions to his employes, who are ot both sexes, Mr. Ptnkei ton informs them that "the existence ot the detective as an olllcer should be entirely unknown. All his acts should be surrounded witlnjecresy, and, in lact, so lar as being recognized! a detective is con cerned, he should strive to bo the very last Iiersou upon whom such a suspicion would be ikely to full." "Crime," says Mr. Pinkerton, "has become more scicntitic; it is, to many, a matter of study how they can possess themselves of the property o: others and jet fhroud them selves from the chances of detection." The pamphlet goes on to say, very sensibly, tnat ''the dctec'.ive requires to be of a high order of mind, and must possess a clear, honest, compre hensive understanding, lorce ol will and vigor of body, able upon any emergency, likely to lead to a discovery ot his character or plans, to btrike out a new course aud prevent himself from beinii detected by the crtmiual upon whom le may be operating.'' Mr. Pinkerton claims for the profession "a hiuli and honorable calling," and adds that 'iew professions excel it." "The detective," he says, "is an ollicer of justice, aud must himself be pure and above reproach." He scouts the old axiom "set a thief to catch a thiol,-' and, after referring to the evils ot that theoiy, he says: "All such practice is ignored by this agency, which holds as its cardinal prin ciple that crime is as foreign to the human mind as a poisonous mineral substance is to tUe body; aud that the criminal, by his criminal act, weakens the whole lortress of his strength, both mental ana moral, by receiving therein an enemy which will always be on tue watch to betray him and whicti certainly will betrav him sooner or later, when the right detective appears, and brines to bear upon the criminal all the armories of a superior intellectual and moral Lower. The detective, if he is to operate in the hieher departments of ci line, must boa man of considerable intellectual power, and pos sess sucn a Knowledge ot numan nature as win give him a quick insight into chaiacter. There is no stronger evidence of weakness or untlt xiess for his position than the continued resort to liquor, by the netective, with the criminal upon whom he Is operating. Crime can and mubtbc detected by the pure aud honest miud obtaining a controlling power over that of the criminal: but in so doing he ought not to seek to weaken the mind he has to contend with bv anv excesses such as have been alluded to The detective roust, in every iustanee, report everything which is favorable to the suspected party, as well as everything which may be aeaiust him. The object of every investica' tion made by this Agency is to come at ihe whole truth, in alt the cases that are submitted to it. There must De no endeavoring, there' loie, to over-color or exaggerate anything against any particular individual, whatever the Busnicion mav be aeaiust him. It is the true lunction ot the detective to bo impartial in all Ins operations, and to gum J himself against iiretudiee on the one hand and tavor on the other. He is to learn all ho can, both for and against the person who may happen to be his ouarrv lor the time being, and report accord ingly. He must credit neither good or ill of any man upon hearsay. His data should be louudeo on knowledge only, and.it upon hearsay the same must be latrly expressed. Ail suspi cions must be veriled by lactj. No man ought to be u.aue to suner on suspicion only. Actions alone are amenable to law aud justice. These are fundamental axioms ot this agency, and must be borne in mind by every detective who is attached to it." Such is a lair picture of what a detective police department should be. But the fraudu lent and tarcical thing known as the Detective iliureau of our Metropolitan Police is organized and operated upon a system so different, that the ventilation of Mr. Piukerton's views may be of use both In New York and in other large cities, by way of reforming that branch of the regular police service. As now managed, it is simply aud solely a system whereby a police man'6 position is used to screen the ctiminal and swindle the victim of robbery, and, so far n nnr own cltv is concerned, unless the deteo- tive organization, as now operated, is lopped otf from tho regular ponce service, u win sap me department of much of IU usefulness and of all Its reputaoie imurucior. We have reached a climax In regard to our fteat moral and sanitary retorms. A Jewish udge ot the Common Pleas Court, seeing in the iiiHtnne.p the elections of next November and De cember, looks forward thereto in the hope that they will perpetuate his otlicial existence. To thin Ai.it thi virtuous Judge yclept Cardozo has announced to the rumsellers ol the metropo lis that he Is their tnena ana wui wua Dy them. "Mnranver. hn holds himself on hand, as thev mnv mmift to eniolo the Excise Board and the nonce trotn interterii-K when they choose to sell rnitrut without u license.

Under such a btate of things the now notoiious Car dozo will bo compelled to subside Into his former nonentity, and seek again his clients among the Chatham street oid clo' men. Thus far the f mis? ant judge has issued about seventy-five in unctions, and the indications are, that unless he can somehow be snuffed out, he intends to tight It out on that line if it takes all summer. Cardozo also enioins the Board ot Health so as to restrain Its officers or any of them from taking the steps deemed necessary to preserve the public health. And In tact our worthy Judge seems ready to lend himscli to any Individual or clique whose whim suggests getting out an in junction against a neighbor or enemy, upon whatever pretext of public benefit or private gain. Bat this ease of getting up Injunctions must soon work out Us own cure, and Cardozo cannot lord It over us torever! Cincinnati Com mercial. CITY ORDINANCES.
