COMMENDS POLICE REVOLT DELEGATION PROTKSTS AOAINST CONDUCT OK P.R'.QKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY HY A CORPORATION. Th«- Mayor's office was crowded yesterday with a delegation from Brooklyn, which opposed the bill receatiy pa— rd by the legislature known as the Morgan Library bill. Henry Saneer Snow and Professor Franklin \\\ Hooper represented those in favor of the measure. The bill seeks to convert the Brooklyn Public Library, publicly governed ani p\ib:i'!y supported. Into a corporation privately gov erned In perpetuity, though maintaine-l hy the taxation of the people. Assemblyman Morgan, who introduced the meas tire In the legislature, said he appeared to set right the opposition, and that if there had been a strong opposition from ih» people they could have de feated the bill. Mr. Snow declared the bill would bring to the Free Library five or six hundred thousand additional volumes, and some valuable collections. For the self-perpetuity feature prece dent was to be found in many large, institutions, conspicuous among them being the New-York Pub lic Library and the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences. Th.- Mayor. Controller and President of the Borough will be ex offi.-io members of the Board of Directors, and all the appropriations for the maintenance of the library will come from the Board of Estimate. Thoc.e h,. spoke In opposition Included ex-Mayor Charles A Scnleren. Frederick Hinricha. the Rev. Dr. 8. Parks Caiman and Dr. Catlin. They as serted thai if the hill became a law it would estab lish a precedent without a parallel In the political history of the country. Mr. Schieren Bald: •It has been urged that the directors of the Brooklyn Public Library. although originally un acquainted with the bill, have since approved i' : but it is notorious that fully a third of that body have. In the most earnest manner, protested against it and. that all of us officers, who are also the trustees of Mr Carnegie, have stated that the pro visions of the bill are contrary to their sentiments as citizens and as individuals. The nature of the bill la such that if the bill were to become a law it would assume the form and enjoy the prerogatives of a contract and thus be put beyond the pale of legislative review, to the crave injury of the community.

STXDAT. APRIL 6. 1902. Tin: BBCEXT ACTION OP PATROLMEN CTPHELD I<V MKTHODISTS. MUCH ROUTINE BUSINESS DISPOSED OF AT CONFERENCE— DEACONS ADMITTED AFTER A WARM DEBATE. In the latter part of the morning session of the New- York Methodist Conference in Grace Church yesterday James M. King presented resolutions commending the recent "revolt" of the rank and file of the police against "a system of personal slavery." He lnd had personal interviews with several patrolmen, he s?aid. and urged the mem bers of the conference to shake hands with any patrolmen they met and encouraße them. The res olutions, which wore unanimously adopted, called upon the Mayor to enforce the Excise law. The full text of the resolutions is as follows: The New- York Conference of the Methodist Epls conal Church composed of three hundred clergy men, largely performing ministerial duties, in the municipal limits of the boroughs of Mannattan and The Bronx of the city of New-York, and repre tenting a constituent of scores of thousands of reputable citizens, desires to commend the heroic attitude of the rank and file of the municipal police of this city in their rebellion against the vicious system of personal slavery which demands the pro tection of vice and crime. Thi« conference is gratified beyond measure with th« courageous action of these honest guardians of the law. and exhorts the Mayor to continue to encourage their action, and in the llsht of the fact to revise the express tudßment concerning the practicability of the enforcement of the excise laws ou both weekday and Sunday. The reform .Mayor is also exhorted to recognize the fact that in "the enforcement of all the laws, which he declares to be his purpose, he must in consistency first risidly enforce the one law which is violated, produces criminals and strikes a deathly blow at the life Of social purity and civic righteous ness. JAMES M. KING, JAMES R. DAY, JOHN J. REED. LOUIS ALBERT BANKS. WARM DEBATE ON DEAOONSHIP. The session was marked by the resumption jf the debate on leniency In admitting deacons. The case was won by those who set a higher value on the efficiency of preachers in parochial work than on their standing in scholarship. After a spirited de bate on the motion to pass I". A. Russell, a licensed preacher of the Newburg District, whose showing was reported below standard yesterday by the ex amining board, th' vote of the conference upon di vision was found to 'be: Yeas. 07: noes, 50.

In the wake- of this success the faction that was making a precedent for admitting to dea conshlp valuable men who failed of full require ments hnd two more candidates— John Dennis and W. A.

The opposition, though it made a gain of 50 per cent, securing twenty-six votes not cast In the previous case was overridden, and W. Tunnicliffe, from the Poughkeepsle District, was declared ready for ordination as deacon by a vote of 9ti to . This fourth ballot put the conference definitely on record as favoring a liberal Interpretation of the discipline as to admission to orders. SUPERANNUATED PREACHERS APPROVED.

Black and Underbill, of the West Thirtieth-st. station, took a "turn" around their pi -.in. t earb last night looking for pool rootns. They entered two places, but found no evidence that the law was being violated, and mad- no arrests. From nil appearance in both pi,.es which were visited fraternal society meeting* were in progress, though the detectives expressed scepticism as to their genuineness. The iirst was on the second floor of the build ing on the southwest corner of Twenty-foorth-«t and Sixth-aye. At the northeast corner of Twenty-flfth-st. and Sixth-aye. they entered a room over a ealoon known as the "Chimney Corner. What the detectives found, according to their own statement?, surprised them. Instead of a poolroom, with its telephone or telegraph instru ment blackboard, racing charts and like equip ment ' they found themselves in what appeared to be a noiia fide lodge room. Black robed fig ures stood at the officers' i.ostE. When Under bill made his sensational appearance, and then admitted his comrades, the one hundred men In the room made a clamorous protest. The de tectives told the lodge men that the place was suspected of being a poolroom, but their re marks were greeted with scorn. They were told that they were intruders on a secret meet ing and to "get out." They "got out" and returned to the West Thirti*eth-st. station empty handed, and unable to say that they had found a poolroom in their travels. But suspicion still rankled in their minds and they talked of push buttons and "buzzers" sometimes ■ hundred feet or more from a room where bets were being laid on the races, and which gave ample warning for a transformation to take place.

SAYS FRIEND WAS MURDERED \ I CHARGES MADE IN CASE OF MAN* STRUCK BY ENGINE ON SIXTH AVE. ELEVATED ROAD. Nathan B. Chadsey, with whom John Suffield, who was found dying on the elevated tracks of the Sixth-aye. line near. Bleecker-st. on Wednes day, had an office, believes that the unfortunate man was murdered. In support of his theory Mr. Chadsey tells of a talk he had with Suffield in St. Vincent's Hospital on Thursday. "I -.vent to the hospital as soon as I heard of this affair," said Mr. Chadsey yesterday. "Mr. Suffield was lyine on his cot. apparently dying. Gangrene, I think, had already set in. I walked over to the cot and said, 'John, do you know me?" He slowly opened his eyes and with diffi culty replied, 'Certainly I do, dear boy.' "This to me was proof that the unfortunate man had his senses about him for he always, in addressing me. called me 'dear boy.' 'I then said to him. 'John, how were you hurt "He replied, 'I was struck on the forehead. "1 then asked him. 'By whom?" "He replied. 'By a conductor.' I then asked him if he had been murdered or robbed, and he answered. 'I had a disturbance on a car with the conductor.' "Mr. Suffield," Mr. Chadsey continued, "was what might be called a stoic. He was a man ho could not be depressed or too highly elated. He took things as they came. There was a time. I believe, when he drank rather heavily, but recently he had not drank anything at all. At one time he was connected with the District Attorney's office In Chicgo. He was also em ployed as a detective by the Pinkerton agency and in that capacity ran dc-vn and sent to prison a number of well known criminals. In doing this he incurred their bitter enmity. "Mr. Suftield was staying at one of the Mills hotels. Now. everybody knows that the part of the city where this hotel is situated is filled with crooks and criminals. I believe that some of the men whom Mr. Suffield sent to jail saw him there and recognized him. "I believe that he was taken to a hotel, drugged, beaten half to death, and then placed on the tracks of the elevated road.

"£» dd ha he had been visited on Friday oy Philip Phillips and Chadsey. with whom the dead man had deskroom.

He had made an investigation of Suffleld's death, and believed that the man hau fallen from th. platform of the station to the tracks in front of the engine.

A CABLE DISPATCH ARRIVES FROM THK BOSS AT THK BIRTH OK A NKW TAMMANY CL.I7BL A new Tammany « luh was born last nlgrht. and the first to offer congratulations to the parents was Richard Crokcr. From his lonely tower at Wantage th<» ooss perceived th" new star on the horizon, and though it dimmed the radiance of one of his chosen followers. Mr Croker telegraphed his congratulations to the man that the new association desires to make leaner o. the XXth Assembly District, the HIM Of all his earlier triumphs. The new club is to bear the euphonious title j of the Thomas Murphy Progressive Club. It is j composed of some three hundred stalwart Tarn- ; many braves, who have decided that the time is | ripe to name a new leader to succeed James P. Keating. At the Tecumseh Club. No. 793 East Thirty -third-st., the followers of Thomas Mur phy gathered, and. joining his name and that Of Progress, laid the first stone of a new or ganization founded upon the bedrock principles of the old, but possessing also the qualities which would appeal to the new and transformed Tammany designed by Mr. Nixon. To be sure. Thomas Murphy is not as young , as some of the Absalom* who have recently en- j tirely choked the entrance to Tammany Hall. He ran on the sett-sams ticket on which Richar.l CrokSl was elected to the important position of Alderman. Indeed, now that some three thousand miles of sea separate Mr. Murphy's friends and j he former chieftain, it is boldly announced that , Mr Murphy's popularity was the deciding force 1, the election.
