CONLIN IS KOT TO 11ETIRE.

Chief Conlln returned yesterday from his tumnior vacation. Whan ho reached Pollco Ileadquartcts ho announced that ho was on good terms with tho Commissioners, and thnt be had no Intention of asking tho Hoard for his retirement. Ho (aid when asked about tho re port that ho would probnbly rotten! "l do not know how It originated. When I went away on my vacation it wns with tho knowlodgo, consent, and good wlshos o( tho Commissioners. I do not know that anything has hnpnencd to change my rolatlona vrith them, llceause ono Commissioner resigns and another is appointed to Burcced lilm, I do not sco why it should bu said that tho Chief is to resign. I bare no Intention of asking to bo retired." Whllo thoChlcf talked CornmlsslonorAndrews sat at his desk directly over the odlco of Conlln poring o cr a book of rules of tho department. Andrews Is now Chairman of the Committoo on Rules and Discipline, and his associate on that committee Is Col. Smith, known In military circles as a rigid disciplinarian. In the desk of tho Commissioner lay tho old charges against Conlln. Grant and Parker had saved tho Chief from standing trial on thoso chargos, but now Or&nt Is out and Parkor a holplosa minority in the Board. When asked about the chargos. Commissioner Andrews said: "The charges are not dead, as some persons seem to think, and can be brought up at any time. I do not know what I shall do about them, and I have not intimated to any ono that they will bo revived or dismissed." President Moss said that ha would not un dertake to prodlot what action the board would tako In referenco to tho Conlln charges. Col. Smith, the new Commissioner, has not yet talon up tho subject, and, until he has learned all tho facts, ho will not talk about It, Ho pent somo time In tho trial room with Com missioner I'arkor1, learning the routine of that work. Tho cases on tho dookot wero mostly of a trivial character, but ho watched each ono closely and occasionally smiled at some of the excuses offered by policemen who had been caught neglecting their duty. While posltlvo ottlclal statements could not be obtained, thoro!was plenty of gossip at head quarters to tho effect that tho charges against Conlln are to bo held in abcyanco for the pres ent. It seems to bo tho settled conviction thero that tho Chief Is to havo another chance. Ono of tho Commissioners Is reported to havo said that ho did not want to put Conlln on trial, but be did wont him to do his duty. That prob ably expresses tho oxact situation. If tho Chief does his duty to tho satisfaction of tho major ity of the board. It is not probable that tho old charge will be pressed to trial. One of tho reasons advanced by thoso who dis cussed tho situation as to why the Commis sioners aro not anxious to try Conlln at this time is that they will bo very busy with im portant manors during the noxt six weeks. Tho election officers aro to be appointed, and In viow of the Importance of tho election unusual caro Is to be exercised In tho soloctlon of men for these places. All applicants who have not served at previous elections will havo to bo put through a seml-civll service examination, and that will tako time. The location of polling places is of unusual interest this year because or tho reduc tion In the number of election districts. This work will keep tho Committee on Elections busy for several weeks. As soon as the civil service regulations havo been complied with the board is going to nil all vacancies among tho ofUcers of tho uniformed force. Four Inspectors aro to be appointed after candidates havo passed examinations under tho now cltil service laws. Commis sioner Andrews said yesterday thnt nearly very Captain in tho department is a camlidato for one of the places, and It Is expected that a Urge number of them will appear for examina tion. Under tho new civil service law appli cants must be rated 60 per cent, for merit and CO per cent, for fitness. Tho board Is to deter mine tho rating for fitness, using Its own Judg ment and information. On these ratings tho Commissioners may clash, and tno board stand three to one again. Then the three can mako promotions on the recommendation of tho Chief. When that time comos Chief Conlln will havo to show bis hand. IIo must stand with tho three Commissioners or enable Parker to block I promotions. f CbRpmsn on a Vacation. Police Captain Chapman, commander of tho Tenderloin precinct, went to Staten Island yes- . terday on his vacation, and Sergeant McDcr- mottwlll be acting Captain of the Tenderloin for the next twenty days.

Instead, thoy wero arraigned in Ccntro Street Court on a charge of extortion, and Po liceman MoDormott was tho complainant against them. On Sunday night, July 4, McDermott entered Marasco's saloon to mako an arrest for violating the Raines law. Morasco complained at Pollco Headquarters the next day that MqDermott had broken in throe doors to gain nn entrance. Tho caso was set for a hearing beforo Commis sioner Parker yesterday. McDermott, when he arratgnod Morasco and Mortone in court, declared that slnco July 0 Morlono had been trying to induco him to mcot Morsscq and talk tbo matter over, telling him that it might bo fixed up. McDormott declared bo had not kept ono of tho engagements ho mado until Wednesday night nt 11 o'clock, when he met the two by appointment nt Canal and Kim streets. "I bad alroady told Policemen Fitzgerald, Nelson, and Ballard of the matter," said Mc Dermott, "and we marked 00 In bills. The thrco policemen kept In sight when I met the two men. Tbey demanded 7B nt first, but finally took the SjOO. As soon as Morasco put tho money In his coat pocket we arrested them and locked them up." Morasco and Morlono both denied this story. They declared they had never tried to see Mc Dermott, but had tried to avoid htm. Thoy de clared that there had not beon any appointment, and they had met McDermott at Canal and Blm streets by accident. " McDermott said to mo," said Morasco, "that he hoped I would not anpoar at Headquarters to-dar. as I would drive mm out of tho business. 1 told him I would certainly appear to press the charge. Then ho said to mo, ' llavo you a cigar 1' and when I said 'no,' he put something In my coat pocket. Before I could put my hand In my pockot to see what be bad put there no arrested me. I did not ask for any money and would not have taKcn It under any consideration. This whole thing Is a conspiracy to keep me from appearing nt Head- ?uartors, I was warned by friends to look out or a job, but In spite ot my watchfulness they managed to trick mo." Magistrate Hedges contorrod with Lawyer Hyaclnthe Rlngroso, who represented McDer mott, and Lawyer Edmund K. Prloc. who repre sented Morasco and Morione, and then an nounced that the case was dismissed. He said ha thought the proceedings at Headquarters would amply cover tho caso.

WHAT" DRVNK" IS ATOONEY ISLAND Justices Kramer and leaioB Allow Some Lati tude to the Islander. Mary Wanderer, tho wife of Morris Wanderer, a hotel keeper at Coney Island, was arrested and locked up on Wednesday night for fighting. About an hour afterward her husband called at tho police station to oak on what charge his wife had been arrested, and he was locked up on a charge ot intoxication. Justice Kramer, in the Coney Island Police Court, discharged both Mr. and Mrs. Wanderer yesterday, and lectured Policeman Bahrman for arresting the man. In discharging Wanderer Justice Kramer de fined Intoxication. " Bahrman," said Justlco Kramor, " I want to say this to you, and perhaps It will bo of use to other officers. Because a roan has been drinking he is not always intoxicated. No matter how many drinks a man has had. as long as a man can control the drink, ho is not intoxicated. On the other hand, no matter how few drinks n man has had. If the drink Is In control of the man, ho Is Intoxicated. I don't think that tho drink that tho defendant had on that night or day controlled him. I think be was excltod by reason of his wife's arrest, and I think It It hadn't been for his wife's arrest and his going to the station house you never would have arrested him. I think be was able to con trol himself and his affairs, and that Is the rea son why I dismiss the case against him." Justice Lemon in tho same court on Tuesday nlso defined intoxication. IIo said that a man was not intoxicated so long as he was able to walk and give his name and address. 2IARTUCCVS JUNK TRANSACTION.

Her husband camo homo Into and dragged her from her bod by her hair, beat her and abused her In other wajs. Mrs, Leary says tho reason sho did not thon begin suit for divorce was that Leary's parents wanted the affair hushod up, and as ther were support ing ber. and were then building a houBe In which sho was to live rent free, she consented and forgavo blm.

A big crowd of enthusiastic Gaels attended tho Inaugural gamos of tho Irish National Al Banco nt Rldgowood Park yesterday afternoon, and the summer dresses of tbo womon and tho bright uniforms of tho Alllanco Voluntcors mado a plcturcsquo cordon around tho track. The threatening aspect of tho weather kept tho attendance down somowhat, which was perhaps jUBt as well from an athlctlu standpoint, ns tho track was not roped In, and It was difficult to keep tho crowd from encroaching on tho path. John Flnnngnn was thu hero of tho day among his countrymen nnd women, and It was with difficulty that tho modest hammer thrower was able to mako his way to tho dressing room through tho throng of IiIb admirers. Tho chief interest of tho crowd centred In tho hammer and weight tin owing and tho hop. step and Jump, which aro Irish national pastimes, and tho for tuues of tho competitors In theso cents were closcl) followed. Tho tport commenced with the oiic-hundrod-yard dash. In which Champion "Berney" ffers figured at tho scratch. Tho handicap did not suit tho N. Y. A. C. tljer, and ho decided not to start. Tho winner turned up in J. J. Hagman of Mt. Vernon, who had a mark of elctcn jards. Ho won easily from Jerome Buck or the Knickerbocker A. C. by two iirds. Tho latter just nipped Cullen by less thnn u toot. Thu guarter-mllo run was divided Into two heats, tho first of which was won b) Buck on sufferance, as Champion Burko hem both tho Knickerbocker represcntntlio and tho second man, Sugcnticlin. safe had ho chosen to exert himself. Kinney took the second hent from Whlthich of the N. J. A. C, who was looked upon as the " good thing" or tho race, with his handicap or 1!8 jnrds. Tho final looked to bo an easy matter for Burke, but he could not quite get up to his men on tho back stretch, nnd tno poor track told on blm coming up the straight. As a result ho could nut reach Buck, who won by two yards. Burke beat Whlt lach four yards for the place Flanagan did not have to ciert hlmscir to win the very handsomo cup offered for tho hammer etcnt. Ho threw 142 foet 10a Inches, Mitchel's best effort being lttO feet 3 inches, which, with his handicap of 4a feet. Just enabled him to tako second place from Cbndwlck of Yule, who had 8 feet. Mitchelwns required to bent his own worlds rocord of 15 feet 4 inches to win thu Sll-pound weight for height. 1 ho big fellow Just missed throwing 15 feet 0 Inches bv about an inch, and O'Conuell of tho New West Sides won with a throw or 1 1 fcot a inches on his bundlcnn of 1'4 fcot. Mite hel was second and llertv third. The other events were closely contested. Tho games were managed by a corps of competent officials, and the progrniiimo was finished on bthcdulo time. The only unpleasant Incident happened whllo the mrn were being put on their marks in tho third heat of tho loo-vard dash. Jcromo Buck of the Knickerbocker A. C. wns dhsatlstlcd with his handicap, and, when re monstrated with by tho clerk ot tho course, used olwccno language to that official and wns promptly reported to tho rercreo.

Navahoe tacked at once on the Vig- Hf ' Hunt's weather quarter, and had her antagonist Al : saioly beaten barring an accident. This was ;tl M about half a milo froui tho West Island -1 9 mark, nnd Navahoo held Vigilant under her i,'ft lee very handsomely until 4:0-1, nnd then tacked itiW to starboard with tho mark nut far away.
