Writes Severe Letter to National
Civic Federation.
Ex -Police Commissioner 'McAdoo last night cent
to the dinner of the National Civic Federation, at
the Pafk Avenue Hotel, a letter severely criticising
the condition ©f the police stations In this city. lie
•was to speak on "The Necessity of Providing Better
Accommodations for Policemen," but was detained
by Illness. The letter says la part:
Tho nation houses nnd the prisons connected
therewith in a largo number of the precincts In
greater New-\ork are a positive dlSCTace to the
city. As a rule, the prisons uro unsanitary, poorly
ventilated and without modern improvements The
cells In the present Police Headquarters have of
ficially been adjudicated ns the worst in this city
It Isshocldn* to, reflect that a great city liko this
has allowed such a place to exist for so long
The police surgeons as a body have condemned a
pi eat many of these houses in an elaborate report;
the health authorities have Inveighed against them
ion^r.« " a rUnPtlt has Protested against the
danter to life; humanitarians, philanthropists, State

the fact that they spend so much of their time In
the open air and are compelled to take, exercise The
t-ity authorities have either got to face the ques
ttonjaiuarely or let Urn whole thing f«t wsn»i£a
Mayor should appoint a commission at one?.
of which, of course, the Police CommlssloiieV
should be one to consider this very Important iub

"Welfare Work" was the topic of tho nJght. Ad
dresses were mode by employer*., employes and
"representative* of the public." Steroopticon
views illustrated what had been done by business
men In providing or the comfort of employes In
the -workrooms, for recreation, educational oppor
tunities and homes.
Charles a. Moore, president of the New-York
local branch of the Civic Federation, presided, and
made the first address on "Duty of Employer to
Provide for the Welfare of Employes," He also
pave a general resume 1 of the purpose for which
th» federation worts.
H. H. Vrecland, president of the New- York City
Jiailway Company, epoko on "What New-York
Employers May Do to Meet the Needs of Their
Kmi'loyes." After Hlseusslngr welfare work In
general, he took up the things that had been done
by the railway company, and said:
Our relief association provides for a man In caß«
of Illness or accident, a pension in old age and at
the time of death a fund for burial. I lave found
that the wife of the average laboring man will
always land on her feet If she is tided over for a
few weeks when the husband dies suddenly.
All of our investigations of failures in this line
(welfare work) have shown us conclusively that a
just and fair policy of dealing with labor must be
the foundation for all welfare work. With that
foundation it may be emphatically stated that em
ployes will welcome all such efforts to provide for
their welfare.
Timothy Healy, international president of the
Brotherhood of Stationary Firemen, bitterly at
tacked large employers for not living up to the
law in having the stationary engineers licensed.
John H. Ituyler, president of Iluyler's. and a
member if the executive committee of the welfare
department. In Indorsing welfare work told of his
establishment and the tilings done for tha work
men and womrri there.
Homer Folks, former Commissioner of Charities,
As an employer, the city of New-York, through
Its Department of Public Charities, ranges from
fair to indescribably bad. Probably in no other
branch of the city government are. euch wretchedly
inadequate salaries paid as In the city's hospitals
and other Institutions.
In most of these Institutions the. city provides
board and lodging for its employes, and pays them
very low salaries The munificent salaries of 112.
US and $1S a month are not at all uncommon. The
city provides board and lodgings, such as they are.
A few years ago the lodgings were, almost without
exception, just about as bad as they could possibly
>>•-. Herded together In unventilated. dilapidated,
unsanitary, cheerless buildings, with practically
none of th« creature comforts of life, it was little
wonder that these employes soon entered once more
in* ranks of either prisoners or patients. Progress
has been lade in some directions. During the ad
ministration of Mayor Low a very comfortable dor
mitory was erected for the male employes of the
City Hospital, in place or a wooden rookery which
had formerly housed them. There has been little
progress, however, during the last two years be
yond the consideration of plans. At thr> Metropoli
tan Hospital, on Blarkwell'a Island, the quarters
for employes are co bad that I can hardly describe
tlum before this audience.

The action of Police Commissioner Blngham In
pending Captain Stephen O'Brien to the Tender
loin apainst his will, degrading 1 Inspector Brooks
from the place of borough Inspector and loading
the duties of borough Inspector in Manhattan on
the phoulders at Chief Inspector Cortrlght. was
declared yesterday by well Informed persons at
Police Headquarters to have been meant to force
the three men named Into retirement. Cortrlght,
Brooks and oi:ri<n would say nothing nj>out their
Intentions, and all that General Bingham would
Bay, when asked why he had decided so suddenly
on Tuesday's "shake-up." was:
"The exigencies of '!"■' situation required Imme
diate action."
It developed yesterday that Cortright. Brooks and
O'Brien had asked Genera] ningiiam for leaves of
absence with pay for twenty days, and thai
O'Krlen had .-. .- i .-• i ■ reply that lie could have
■nek a vacation after May 1. O'Brien has not yet
reached th« ••» limit for retirement on a pension,
and It is doubtful if he could get a certificate of
physical disability from "■•• ""row
Chief Inspector <"ortrlght has been threatening to

New York, February 14, JOO6.
<OJ-FEE — The coffee market was fairly active, largely
as a result of continual ewltchins from near to late
months, about 60 per cent of the total business toeing the
result of exchanges. I'rloes -were generally easier under
European Felling and scattering liquidation, which trenmd
due to apprehensions of more radical March evening up
and reports of lower firm offers from Brazil. The mar
1 ket opened unchanged to ft points lower, ami closed barely
: steady at a decline of B to 10 points. Ba • c were reported
of 120.000 ba»t». Aside from th* reports of lower arm
offers from Frazil the primary news was «nooura«lnif to
local bulls apparently. Rio was {><) re -» higher, and
Santos remained unchanged, with the rate of Brazilian
! exchange 1 -324 lower. Ke.elpts were light at all points,
the two ports had 14.000 hags, against 23,000 last year.
; and the Jundlshy movement was 4,000 bags, against
14,000 last year. Warehouse deliveries also continued
| liberal, and hulls claim that the (strengthening of the
i statistical position Is making satisfactory progress. The.-*
' reemed to be no general demand to help the market
; through the pressure of yesterday, which was believed to
i come generally from abroad, but bull operators believe
' that as soon as the first lurch notice day has passed
| there will be las." hesitation about buying- contracts for
Investment. Th.. volume of switching, considering the
fact that notice <!f.y fahs at tho and of next week. Is not
heavy enough to suggest a very large Interest remaining
i in that option. The market for spot coffee was quiet.

The ran ire of contract prices In the local market to
day was as follows:

COTTON' The cotton market was more active to-day,
1 and showed a generally steadier tone, with the close 8 to
14 points net higher. B.iles were estimated at SuO.Ooii
I l.ale«. The market opened steady at a decline of 2 to .1
points, or about as due on the cables. New-Orleans was
I relatively heavy early and sent Belling 1 orders here; there
j seemed little sign of bull support, and" local bears sold
the market off to a net decline of about 8 points, and
within 1 point of the lowest fur the movement. Around

was a better epot demand In the South. The close was
ft«acTy in tone and within a couple of points of the top on
the active months. There seemed to be a good spot de

i the feature of the day and th« motive for the advance
Liverpool reported spot sales for the day of 12.000 bales:

Chicago. Feb. 14.— The grain market had a slightly }
firmer tone to-day, which. hr>wav«r. did not result '
In any material betterment of prices. It ad * • Xi
to the prices of May -wheat, and nothing to th»
value of July. Friedman sent brokers Into th«
pit near the end to well July, and forced Its pric*
to ]' 3 a discount under May. Corn -was unchanged
for May. and 1-1 60 better for July. July oats wer»
unchanged and May up x*c. Provisions were as full
of life and ambition as they w«re when they flrs%
began to read their lesson to the packers, who
originally opposed the advance -which they are now
supporting. Pork had another 1«V roe, lard TT 2 -> to
se. and ribs from la to T*jc.
The wheat market opened quit** tame, -with *p*eu»
latlva sentiment but little changed from yesterday. j
but Am was a firm undertone, dn« to cables
from Antwerp showing that Argentine wheat was
higher. Tills confirmed reported revisions of th»
Argentina crop estimates. Prices did not ma
terially advance locally. I^cal receipts were 5
cars, against 26 th- sam» day a year agr% Esti
mate of to-morrowa local receipts. 2 cars. May*
closed at So^e. the highest was K4c, and th» low
est 85c. July sold from 83^^ to &5»;o to »V-4c. clos
ing at 8C a 4a 4 to S3 T ic
On was firmer at the opening, and this firtfrpji
was maintained and added to moderately as th»'
session advanced. The cold -weather and export
clearances were favorable to the bull element. Th*
sample market was about steady at yesterday*
figures. Local receipts were 403 cars, of which, Tt'
were contract. Shipments hence were 158.0» bu»h- ; .
els. Estimate of to-morrow's local receipts Kera l
440 cars. May closed at 43t^c. aft»r «elllng as h!#t»
as *>;„■; to 42"4 c» and as low as 43% c to 131*5. July
sold from O%e to «Tic to iVnd. closlns at 43T»<»
to «•.
Oats ruled dull and featurel-sa. with fluctuation*
of prices within a narrow range. Trad* was Ugh;
and mostly local. The market held firm. In sym
pathy with other grains and continued good de
mani for May at SOc. Receipts were l*t cars, with
125 cars estimated for to-morrow. Shipments h«nc«
were 334.0C0 bushel.-. May sold from 30c to 3QHo to
SO^io, cloalng at a)^.?. The range si July was fron»
23?b0 to 23^c to 29?ic. closing at 23»sc
Proviaiona had a strong undertone. The continue »
light receipts of hogs caused substantial gains liv
prices at the yards, and Incidentally established %
new high point record, the best grades selling a*
high as $S2i. At th« start shorts started the buy-
Ing, but holders were eager to take rroflta, »->>•
considerable e^llinir from this source r»t.Tgg«red th»
ad value. A steady stream of buying orders of ■»■»
Investment character was poured Into the. pit. and,
prices recovered from their temporary weakness
and continued to move in an upward direction.
May pork sold from Jir. 50, ofT to B5 43. and react**!
to 515 60. May lard Bold from J7»X to fT 96 off 15
$757>,. and reacted to STM. May ribs soil fron»
IBI7H to 58 20. oi? to tSIS. and reacted to J8 El*.
Hog receipts were S0.O««> haad, and prices at th*
yards were 10c to 13c higher.
