When the Iollco Hoard met restenlny Com
missioner 1nrkor was absent The other thn
CommlKMonem decided tn ask the Legislature
to pass a bill A that tlio majority of the Hoard
ran make promotions The Commissioners
alxn considered tthe opinion of the Corporation
Cotinmtl rclatlvn t the rowers b Chief Conlln
The Corporal Ion Couneel has decided that the
Chief ami not the Hoard of Iollco hiut the
power to rnmko transfers details and assign
ment to duty
President Koosevelt had this to say on the
subject I cntled l tlio Httentlon of the Lexis
laturo when nt Albany Jfsterday to the obvious
Impropriety of the IllpnrtlsAn law In diving
thn details nn < l assignments of duty t the
Chief nnd nt the same time making It neces
sary to call In the Chief I there Is I n division
on the question of n promotion Three Com
missioners oat of four can appoint and dismiss
hit It t kes four Commliuloneers t promote
The Hoard last year was n unit against the
11 partisan bill The majority of the Hoard
iliould 1mva power to promote
The three Commissioner then discussed the
presont law under which promotions can only
lio I nindq by four Commissioners or by thrco
when the Chief recommends tho promotions
They agreed that the law should b changed
so that the majority of tho Hoard conld pro
moto and 8 that the power of making details
lie I vested In tho hnmls of tho Hoard Prosl I
d 1 it Hoosovelt said tjat thA law should b that
no promotions lie made except by 1 majority
or the full Hoard Thief Clerk Klpp called at
tvntloii to tlio tnt thnt If tho law wn worded
that promotions lust lie made by n majority
of llui full Hoard It would bo necessary for nil
four Commissioners to b present when a pro
motion la made
Strike nut the word full said President
Rooaovelt and make It of tho
RonMvol I by n majority 110
Hoard This was acquiesced In by Commls
clonrrs Andrews and Grant Commissioner
Andrews was delegated t prepare a bill providing
viding that hereafter no promotions dlsml
mis or appointments bo mae except by a
majority of tho llonrd also that transfers
assignments nnd details b made by tho Board
of Police and that tho finald have full power
to delegate to thn Chief tho duties of carrying
nut such transfers assignment and details
It became kjiown later that Commissioners
Irant nnd Androwi had discussed tho provi
sions of ouch a measure before the meeting Col
Irant BUM Tho notes have been prepared
of such a bill All that remains Is t preplrc
copied nnd drnwn up In regular order
Mr Andrews said he would have this done
nt once and forward the bill to Albany 1m
incil lately
President Roosevelt has this to say further
about tho later The Hoard will do Its best
vthotlicr under the present law or any law It
feels however that It should give the Legls
latue > n chance to make the law good The
Hoard protested strongly against the passage
of tho Bipartisan bill for reasons which now
orernto t make it disadvantageous We will
iln nrttv wpll hnwwr under Hnv law
It Is clearly the to H not tho i ro Com
ml < < oncrs to try to have the law changed so
that they will have tho power of making pro
motions without Mr Parker or Chief Conlln
Tho promotions of Acting Inspectors Hrooks
I and AlcCullngh are pending because of Com
missioner Parkers opposition Messrs Hooso
vclt Andrews and Grant are apparently bent
upon confirming them brt without Parker or
tho Chief they cannot promote them Tho
Commissioners are also anxious t hare the
power of ranking transfers detail and na
flgmnonls token away from the Oilef Under
the III partisan hill as construed by the Cor
poration Cnunsiil Chief Conlln has tho power
of detailing all the roundsmen and tho assign
ment of Sergeants n nctlng Captains and of
Captains as acting Inspectors Tho action of the
three Commissioners will doubtless widen tho
brench between them and Mr Parker which
wan supposed to he healed Should the Legis
lature pass the bill which MessrsHooseveltAn
drew and Grant want to hao made a law
the majority of the Hoard will have the power
to make nil promotions transfers details and
assignment of duty and the powers of the
Chief would b proportionately curtailed
Speaking of tho Corporation Counsels opinion
Commissioner Andrews said I believed previously
viously that under the law the towel spoken
of were vested In the Chief The law should
he changed however As it is now there is a
division of power which Is foolish and detri
mental to the efficiency of the department
Tlio Commissioners hare tbu power t appoint
patrolmen Tho Chief has the power to detail
patrolmen as roundsmen ThC tho Hoard has
to pick Its Sergeants and Captains from the
lonmlBtnen that the Chief has made and tho
election of whom th Commissioner have had
n voice in That Is ba We should have all
lie power of making details and assignments
ivith n view to promotions
Commissioner Andrew s added thnt the argu
ment advanced by Mr Roosevelt and himself
it Albany on Thursday relative t adding 800 I
more policemen to the force was very well re
elixl He also saIl that tho Assembly seemed
to ho In faor of the bill authorizing the Boar
10 establish the slgnnl system The matter of
the Itcorgnnizntlon bill he said was not ta
rornbly received
Following is the full text of the Boards res
powers nlution relative t a bill t curtail the Chiefs
lltwthed That Commissioner Andrews prepare i
ind forward n bill to provide that hereafter no I
promotion hal b raado except by a majority ot
the Hoard Also that tranifers detain and assignments
t aooll
ments shall bo made by the Hoard of Police giving
however to the Hoard full power to delegate un
der suitable rules and regulation dllc power
tn the Chief of 1ollce The Hoard or course
wi do Its bent under any law whether the present
or an amended law and I merely feels that It
ihoultl glvu to the Legislature the chance to make
the law good ant Ita present course Is simply fol
lowing out vhut the Uonnl by unanimous action
did II to tnr when It protested against tbe passage
of tho 111 pirtlian bill for the very reanons which
are now operating to make It work disadvantage
oiuly The provlidoni are obviously Improper and
complicate matters In a perfectly Billy and rldlcu
rhl rr
lous III manner and this li I for the purpose of having
t proper Hlmpllclty of legislation and to put ourselves
I Ural ht on the record
The Commissioners decided to clve station
doormen IndgeH of tome kind P they couM
mnke nrrHis without their authority to do so
being disputed Doormen were also mado ell
elblo to promotion as patrolmen mao
Conlln wns directed t prepare a list of those
lit to ncfln that capacity

the ground that thn testimony of tbe then act

Straus was dismissed from the police force on
the ground that hu mae > mistake In sending

the law against discharging fireworks In the
public streets It was alleged In the complaint
that the Captain should have sent the men no

Into which order she was Initiated last summer

past life fell nway from her and she was born

that her religion was that of Calvin Bholsno

has a pleasing voice the Celtic habit of genture
and she speaks wltn a strong French accent
To a SUN reporter who called upon her yester

called It but declined t tel of herself
My former life I have put way from me

tho people ot the republic
The committee points out that the In
terests of the State stiller by reason of pro
tracted Senatorial contents that are of frequent
occurrence Instances In New York Oregon
Washington Montana Idaho Wyoming ana
Kentuckynre cited Tho recent contest before
tie Legislature of tho fciliiteof Delaware says
tie report is I fresh In th public mind result
ing In the claim now pending of Mr Dupont to
a scat In the Senate while the dally reports of
tlio Interminable contest In the Legislature of
the State of Ketucky with no results after
many weary months of fruitless balloting add
strength t the proposition of your committee
Popular opinion has the committee says
taken hold of the subject nnd tbe demand for
this change Is loud and emphatic Tho belief In
the publlu mind Is rapidly gaining that proper
deference I not given by the donate ot the
United States to the demands and Interests of
the people and that Is largely duo to the tat
that Senators do lot owe their position to tie
people who aro permanent but to tho Legisla
tures which are transient
In conclusion the committee snys The peo
ple demand a voice tn the election of Senators
and such demand In the Judgment of your com
mittee should bo respected So whatever may
be said to the contrary whatever may be
thought of the sanctity of the Constitution as
It stands it must bo admitted by all that thn
people are becoming restive under IU restraints
on tho right of thoso entitled under the Const
tution and laws to exercise the elective frnii
rlilsc Ihe movement of tho people in the In
terest of the people on this an on many other
questions Is stalwart and universal and the
sooner this groat fact Is recounted by the rep
resentatives of tbo people the better
