Mayor Low Aroused by The Evening Worlds
Exposure of Plot Against the Fire Chief
Tells Commissioner the Testimony Does
Not Warrant Dismissal
A wide split In the reform adminis
tration promises to follow whatever no
tion Fire Commissioner Sturgis takes
with relation to the charges against
Chief Croker
If the Commissioner adheres to his
Intentions he will dismiss the Chief
from the force wthln a few days anil
In this event Mayor Low will ask him
to resign from the Commissionership
And If he does not dismiss or humll
late Chief Croker he will be compelled
to stand the onslaught of the Republi
can politicians who are behind the plot
to make the department a cog In the
local machine
Tho astonishing exposures In The
Evening World yesterday of tho real
motives underlying the persecution of
Chief Croker have aroused the city and
have evidently the effect of stiffen
ing the backbone of the Maypr whoso
Interest In the matter appears to have
been of recent birth Up to last Thurs
day night there was no outward oppo
sition on the part of the Administra
tion to the carrying out of the plan of
Commissioner Sturgis tn force Chlet
Croker out of the department
Meeting at Mayor Home
On that evening a conference was
called at the residence of Mayor Low
There were present the Mayor Commis
sioner Sturgis Corporation Counsel I
Georgei Rives and hU assistants Capt
Ar Cosby and C S Whitman who
represented the Law Department at the
trial of the Chief exFire Commission
er James It ShcflleUl who Is counsel
for the Pinkies the organization of
exForeman James D Clifford Chief
Crokers relentless foe and who Is
° slated to succeed Commissioner Stur
gis John C Clark the Mayors legal
adviser and William Leary Secretary
of the Fire Department
It developed at this conference upon
tho admission of Commissioner Sturgls
himself that the only charges ho could
possibly consider proved out of the
long line preferred against the Chief
were that ho failed to safeguard the
Park Avenue Hotel by enforcing the
fire laws that he managed the Park
Avenue Hotel and Sovontyflrst Regi
ment Armory Ores Improperly that he
allowed hose to go to the Polo Grounds
and a lumber yard In Newtown without
collectfng revenue for the same that hn
forced out ot the department or at
tempted to force rift certain members I
opposed to his policy and that he re
turned from his vacation when he learn
ed of the plot against him and Insisted
upon taking charge of the department
The Mayor had considered the evi
dence two nights before and was not
convinced that tho Commissioner had
made good even on these points He
advised that tho Commissioner drop the
matter as he did not believe that
enough proof had been adduced to war
rant even a reprimand for tho Chief
In this ho was backed up by Corpora
tlon Counsel Rives who does not rtd
the newDpaporr and Is consequently I
Ignorant of the unanimous disapproval
of Commissioner Oturelsa count on
the part ot the local prcw
Commissioner BtunaU Insisted upoa
x f
a Iw1 i
carrying out his original plan despite
the weighty opposition to IL
Left Conference In a huff
It Is reported upon good authority
that he left the conference at 10 oclock
or after ho had been battered with ar
guments for two houm and that ha
was glen to understand that If ho car
lied out his Crokor plans It would mean
the severance of his relations with tho
Fire Department Finding himself be
tween the devil and the deep sea the
Commissioner went homo to think It
ovti The others remained In confer
ence until 2 oclock In the morning
Although It li acknowledged by the
Mayors advisers that the charges
against the Chit have net been sus
tained liy the evidence there Is a bitter I
feeling toward him especially In tho
Citizens Union faction of the adminis I
tration These gentlemen cannot under
stand how a man bearing the name of
Croker can be honest They stand on
thll broad proposition and will not bo
pushed from It notwithstanding that a
thorough search of the Department rec
ords for fifteen years back have foiled
to bring to lIght a single Instance of I
dlshpnesty on the part of tho Chief from
tho day he first polished tho brass work
on qn engine until he was brought up
for trial
Lcnry In the Fight
In addition to the political aspect of
tho fight against the Chief there li the
opponltlon to him on the part of Secre
tary Ieary of the Fire Detriment who
has the backing of the Republican ma
chine It was tho belief of Mr Loary
nhey he took ofllce that he should bo
allowed to have something to say re
garding transfers The first batch he
took to the Chief was turned down
Ill make my own transfers said
the Chief I know the mr n ot this De
partment and what they can do
There Is no doubt In the minds of the
Mayor and Corporation Counsel that
tho Court of Appeals will reinstate
Chief Croker should ho be dropped
This outcome would be a black eye to
the reform administration from whlon
recovery would be extremely difficult
A perusal of the evidence by the Mayor
showedrilm that John J Delaney coun
sel for Chief Croker did not even exert
himself to put In evidence In defense of
some of the charges contenting him
self with protecting the legal Interests
of his client with a view of action by
the courts
Chief Croker and Mr Delaney believe
that Comniloiloiior Sturgis has gone
too far to allow himself to back down
The expect tile order making a va
cancy at the head of the Fire Depart
ment within a few hours and their pa
pars for an appeil to the courts are

Talk about bearding the lion In hIs
den It will be done at Bostocks AnI
mal Show on Monday evening next at
930 oclock precisely
The raison detre Is found In the fact
that soma days ago Mr Bostock offered
a bonus of 500 to any young couple who
would consent to be married In his fa
molts den of lions
The announcement brought responses
from half a dozen engaged couples and
all seemed serene for a sensational
riage amid the lions but the wily Afr
Bofltock forgot one Important particular
the officiating clergyman The various
couples were willing but the minister
was minus
Mr Bostock advertised
In the news
paper for a clergyman A wellknown
congregational minister of the city has
offered his services and the ceremony
will take place
lIe stipulated that his name shall not
bo made known until after Ms Sunday

I are known They are Harry Horn of
