ALL WAR DM EX CHANGED.
Bingham Orders Precinct Detectives
Into Uniform.
r allowing up hi* order of Thursday, by which
all the pollco captains in the city, save one. were
transferred. General Blngham yesterday Issued
a sweeping general order remanding all the pre
cinct detectives In th« city to patrol duty In
uniform. Th« order is to go into effect at <\
o'clock this evening, when the men who have
been doing police duty In plain clothes «r«» ex
pected to go on post In their precincts. Tho
order affects about two hundred men.
It is expected that a large number of men
who have been doing: detective duty for years
In precincts will ask for retirement rather than
resume, "pounding the FiJewalk." Some of them
have grown too fat for the uniforms they used
to wear. There will be difficulty in many cases
in getting uniforms to fit the men who resume
patrol duty to-night.
One result of the order is that the captains
v.-ho were transferred Thursday will he unable
to take with them to their new precincts the
confidential men they had working for them
In plain clothes. Th*» order is meant plainly rs
a blow at the collection of "graft" for some pre
cinct commanders.
General Btngham's order puts Ml Ih^ district
Inspectors th« recponsibility of selecting men
for detective, duty in precincts, at the same time
requiring the inspectors to change the detectives
In a precinct often.
"Hereafter," the order says, "it will be the
duty of the inspectors to assign the work of
all plain clothes men in their districts, Including
those who are needed to assist tho. captains in
their precinct work. Inspectors, when assigning
men to duty in plain clothes, will not keep the
ii«m« men in the same precincts for a period
lonr<=r than thirty day«."
The order also requires insp»rtors tn make re
ports to the Commissioner at the end of each
week regarding the work of the men assigned
to detective duty. When thcr» is ■ failure of
a case before a magistrate th» Inspector must
explain why th« detective, did not get the right
evidence to hold th» prisoner. General Bin«hatn
established a precedent in police orders by giv
ing in yesterday's order a reason for his sweep-
Ing action. He says:
One object of this order is to effect closer
co-operation In police work between the inspec
tors and their subordinate officers, requiring
inspectors to be closely conversant with the
conditions of police necessity in '< ( h precinct
Included in their district, and requiring cap
tains to be in closer subordination and co-opera
tion each with hip own Inspector.
This order do*>p nor suspend the right of car
tains to detail not exceeding four members of
the outgoing platoon for patrol duty in plain
clothes duriner the tour. in which case the same
men are not to he used more than oncA ft week,
nor the right of a captain to detail a man for
duty in plain clothes for twenty-four hours, nor
the ripht of an Inspector to permit a captain to
detail a man for plain clothes duty for forty
eight hours. But any prolonged investigation hi
plain clothes i? to be conducted only aftrr con-
FUltation between th» captain and the inspector
and by m»n Stalled for such duty by the in
spect ,-•:.
Before he issued the order to remand all the
precinct detectives to patrol duty yesterday
General Bingham threw cold water on a report
that he would soon transfer all the inspectors
and most of th» sergeants. He said that, while
he might move some of the sergeants, the
changes would not he important. He intimated
that he meant to place more work on the shoul
ders of the inspect Ars and hold them responsi
ble for the condition of their districts.

KINGS COUNTY PESTHOUSE UP.
Bacteriologist Scouts Alleged Necessity for
Removal from City.
The principal topic discussed at the meeting of
the Bosrd of Estimate yesterday was the projected
removal to Barren Island of the pesthouses of the
Kings County Hospital Controller m*. submitted
the proposition for a public hearing on the sub
ject. He said that the. pesthousee wen* in the
mlc>t of a growing city and were thought to en
danger health. Dr. Herman A. Biggs, bacteriolo
gist of the Health Department, protested against
the motion. He said:
The. whole prejudice against Infectious diseases
I* wrong, and the. objection to th* neighborhood of.
hospitals for people with these diseases is senti
mental There Is not the slightest danger to any
one in the neighborhood of a hospital containing
patients with Infectious diseases. *
Dr. Biggs saJd that the practice In Europe had
been for year« to have at least one bed for in
fections disease, patients to every thousand in
habitants. He. said that New York had only nine
hundred beds, and ought to have four thousand.
Mr. Biggs showed a statistical map of the eMy
to prove that the Kings County Hospital was the
natural geographical centre of ell the localities
from which patients with contagious diseases had
been brought during the last year. Barren Island
he contended, was an Inconvenient place for the
penthouses.
The subject wan referred to the Controller and
the Borough President of Brooklyn for a publio
hearing in the Controller's office at a date to be
fixed later.

POLICE EVIDEXCE WEAK.
Raid Prisoners Released— Parkhurst
Captures Are Held.
A striking contrast In the preparation of WMWMW
by police detectives and by ag-nU of the Society
for the Prevention of Crime was presented y-pter
day in the Jefferson Market court, when the pris
oner^taken in raids on seven dens of vice In the
Tmderloin on Thursday night were arraigned bo
fore Magistrate Haas. Nearly ail the prisoners
taken in three police raids were discharged. I*>
cause -the evidence Fubmttted wa* Insufficient. All
lr ,e keepers of four houses on which the society"*
agent" made raids were held for trial, the evidence
being conclusive.
In one of the police cases the keeper of a nous*
and all the Inmates who had been arrested were
discharged when Magistrate Moss was told that
all the evidence against the place consisted In in
formation that several sailors and soldiers had been
seen entering It at night. In the next case all the
prisoners were discharged except the reputed keep
er of th» house, who gave bail and obtained delay
in examination. In the third case Mary Denver,
who had been arrested as the keeper of a house,
pleaded that she had nothing to do with its man
agement, and Minnie Schwartz, who had escaped
at the time of the raid, went on the witness stand
and testified that «<he was the real keeper of th«
place. Mary Denver was held for trial, however,
and the Schwartz woman was allowed to go free.
because of the police testimony that Mary Denver
had opened the door to the police at the time of
the raid.
When the society's cases' came before Magistrate
y''^s the agents who had made th» raids were
p^pared with evidence of violation of law and of
the. management of the houses by the prisoner?.
All the prisoners were held for trial In the Court
of Special Sessions. In the case of nn alleged den
In West 24th street, which had been a cause of
annoyance to the Tw*>ntv-thlrd Street branch of
the Young Hen's Christian Association, the so
ciety's agents testified to making seven visits In
procuring th« evidence. The attention of the po
lice was called to the house several months ago.
Police Commissioner Blngham declined yesterday
to talk about the raids made by the society's
»gents In Captain Schlottman's precinct. All he
would say on the subject was, "They can't scare
me."
LAXGDOX HOLDS PLACE.
Court Restrains Ruef — San Fran
cisco Muddle Grows.
San Francisco, Oct. 26. — District Attorney
Langdon, of Par. Francisco, v.-ho last night was
suspended by Acting Mayor Gallagher, to-night
was apparently in a victorious position, and
had pained a temporary advantage over the city
officers snd politicians who sought his removal
after he h^d announced his intention to seek th»
indictment of several city officers for felonies
,-md misdemeanors).
Almost at daybreak an attorney appeared at
tho home of Superior Judge Seaweil and ob
tained an order temporarily restraining Abra
ham Ruef, whom the Acting Mayor appointed
to succeed I,arigdon. from interfering with the
District Attorney's office.
Judge Seawell set the case for hearing one
week from to-day. The restraining order was
served on Ruef and the board of supervisors
at an early hour, nnd I^angdon and hi? assistants
•wei-o not disturbed in their official capacity.
The excitement of the day came with the pro
ceedings this afternoon in the court of Superior
Judge Thomas Graham, where 'he nineteenth
and final member of the new grand Jury -was
chosen. It was expected that th«» court would
recognize either Langdon or Ruef as District
Attorney.
When the Jury had been completed. Mr. Heney,
one of Mr. Lnngdon's assistants, made objec
tions to the actions of a deputy sheriff, who had
p^verai times attempted to search him. Ruef
pair) thp deputy was acting under his instruc
tions. it being Rue/s belief that Heney was
armed. The court warned the deputy to cease
annoying Heney.
Ruef then attempted to address the judge as
an officer of the court, but Heney objected to
Ruef'a assuming such right. Judge Graham de
clined to pass on the Issue, saying that he would
not at that tim<» settle the, dispute or recognize
any one as an officer of the- court. He refused
to hear any further argument on the subject.
Ruef obtained permission to speak as an at
torney at the bar, and declared that he wished
to proceed with an examination into the qual
ifications of certain grand Jury men.
Hen^y interrupted, saying that the first thing
he intended to present to the grand jury was
evidence supporting the charges of felony ami
misdemeanor against Ruef.
At this Juncture another objection came from
U. S. Webb, Attorney General for th*» state, who
declared that the court should not permit such
statements to be made before the grand Jury,
which was present, as it might disqualify tiiem.
and he averred that there wag a possibility that
they had already, been disqualified.
Webb then asserted that he intended to as
sume charge of the matters now before the
court. Judge Graham ordered the jury dis
missed until Monday morning. Heney strongly
protested against this order, saying that it was
known what subject was to be presented to the
jury first, and that a delay would give time to
get witnesses out of the jurisdiction of the
court
During these proceedings, and for an hour
earlier, three thousand persona sought to hear
the legal tilt. Before court opened the crowd
packed the courtroom and corridors, and a
squad of policemen was summoned to eject
them. The police did not use the most genllo
methods in performing this task, and several
well known citizens were roughly thrown into
the street. I^nter certain persons were admitted
to the courtroom until it. was filled, and it wa-s
then noticeable that a large percentage of the
gathering inside consisted of policemen in plain
clothes.
A- hie: crowd remained In the streets awaiting
the result of the hearing inside. When Langdon
and Heney emerged they were heartily cheered.
A few minutes later Ruef appeared and was
hooted. As Ruef was going to his automobile
a man who had been ejected from the courtroom
attempted to strike him. but the police seized
the offender. Ruef was attended in court and
afterward by two detectives from the Police De
partment.

FAVOR THE Si'EEDWAY
Long Island Property Owners Want
Big Auto Course.
The meeting of the plan and scope committee of
the proposed automobile speedway on Ixing Island
yesterday was postponed until Monday owing to
William K. Vanderbllt. Jr., its chairman, being out
of town.
Dean Alvord. who has charge of right of way
matters, has received voluntary offers of nearly"
ten miles of the proposed right of way from owners
on T,ong Island, who are anxious to have the bene
fits of the. highway which would naturally accrue
to their properties. These offers are so numerous
as to leave the committee a wide choice In the
route to be selected. At least six miles of the ten
offered is through the most expensive portion of
the territory, beginning at the city line, in Nassau
County.
Four lines through Suffolk County have been
projected. The one affording th« least expense, and
In connection with which the greatest inducements
are offered by the property owners, will be the one
finally chosen] At points In Suffolk County these
four routes hnv« been subdivided In so far as to
make it possible to select one of six routes, any
on« of which will present all the natural features
and conditions necessary for a highway of this
character.

American Automobile Association, and A. R. Par
dington, who have in hand the matter of general
prospectus and general organizntion. desire it un
derstood that the company promoting this high
way are not building a racetrack. They arc plan
ning a highway Intended for the use of motor cars
at all times, on which unlimited speed may be
possible, presenting grades, turns, etc. In one or
two Instances grades approximating 11 per cent
will present conditions which should appeal to the
manufacturer. The racing feature will be purely
incidental and can he either promoted on the entire
highway. which, ns now planned, will be sixty miles
long cr can be confined to a stretch of probably
fifteen or twenty miles long, with broad loops at
each end. offering spectacular advantages etc.
It should also be borne In mind that this plan
and scope committee is taking up In a broad
way vlth the local authorities through Nassau ana

Broken Bottlea Strew Street.
[By TeWrapli te The Tribune]
Passalc, N. J.. Oct. 'JO.— A big two-horse brew
ery wagon, loaded with bottle? of h*>er. was
struck by an Erie Railroad train hero this
afternoon and only by a miracle- was a fatality
averted.
Though gates protect the crossing, they were
not lowered In time to prevent the driver reach
ing the middle of the track just as an eastbound
train came along. Horses and driver barely
cleared the engine, which struck the wagon
amidships, demolishing it and scattering broken
glass for a distance of over one hundred feet.
Neither the driver nor the horses were even
scratched, but small bits of glass literally hid
the roadway from view. The contents of the
bottles flew in a shower in all directions, wetting
many passersby and sprinkling the street ef
fectually.

THE PRINT CLOTH MARKET.
Fall River. Mass . Oct. »>.— Th« weekly sales in
th« print cloth market for the week will reach a
total of about 250.000 pieces. Although the general
market lias not been M active an last week, there
Is still a steady demand for all classes of goods.
Prices for regulars show an advance of 14 rent,
and a similar rise Is noted in the. wide 6V s. The call
during the week has been mostly for wide and
medium widths, both plain and sateens. Printers
have practically covered themselves for the spring
and summer, so that at the present time they are
not so much in evidence as they have been for th«
last month or so.
There Is a good demand for goods for delivery
during the next two months, but Olivers are finding
it dlrtlcult to place, orders for this time, as the
mills are well sold ahead.
The quotations are: 2S-inch, *4 squares. 3 4 cents
2S-lnch. 64 by co, 3»* cents; 3sii-inch. «4 squares sv
cents; 39-inch. *& by 72. 6*; cents. *
