Hff i" teo has at last yleldod to tho almost unanl-
l; i moua protest of tho nrtls.Uo world of Now York
KP in tho mnltcr of selecting a si to for tho mono-
HB . rnont. Sorao tlmo ago all tho members of tho
URi'c committee, with tho oxcoptlon of Hecorder
WE& Oorr and Prcsldont McMillan of tho Park Board
ssssstrsWrSt cn' themselves on record as favoring tho so-
BrlP called "Plaza site" near tho entrance to tho
HLK& Parlt nt Flftr-nlnth strcot and Fifth avenue.
LwfSH B '"hen architects vrero Invited to submit
MMuf v models thoy nrers told to mako their designs to
HJKh. - fit, that spot. When It beenmo eenerallr known
EYaK& , that the commltteo was dotermlnod to erect
HB v tho monument within tlio shadow of thrco
HJBi y towering buildings, a storm of protests arose
E-Mf', ' and tlio scheme of tho commltteo was defeat-
PBp ' rd'bjr tho advorio votos of tho two expert mem-
EaWj? ' hers of tho Municipal Art Commission.
HjkgU. ( It was then thought that tho vthnlo project
WP? - of erecting tho montituont would pass into tlio
saaasV.aaaVV1 bnds of the now Art Commission of Greater
KfcT rt New York, hut tho Mayor, who had been all
saKsssaVv' i, 'long tho most vigorous advocate of tho Plata
BafcaBE'V . lto, determined to mako ono rooro effort to
t 'settle the matter beforo his tern) of ofllco ox
" plrod. With this end In view he called tho
Memorial Commltteo together and told tho
KI;A members ho was willing to consider a now slto
K.'B&. if one could be selected that was sure to meet
KiBS with the approval of tho expert members
BBssT'sKif ' tuo Municipal Art Commission.
E' ; K C. W. & A. A. Stoughton, whose design for
mfl ; F? the monument had been previously selected,
K 'f, t wore consultod, and at yesterday's meeting
K( 8f thoy wcro ablo to submit plans for tho erection
Efr '4 v of the monument on tho lawn at Claremont,
B- t. 1,000 feet north of Grant's Tomb. They said
H that tho design selected could be erected thoro
R ;:j without any radical alterations, and the now
H 3 site scorned to meet with tho approval of all
Ky. v- the members of tho commltteo except Gen.
Hk ;i Collls. Charles T. Harney, President of tho
HE L" Municipal Art Soclet7, who is a ember of
llj the Municipal Art Commission, was present,
Bl ,'- and ho approved tho slto without hesitation.
Hjlj- llo sold that ho could not speak for J. Q. A.
Umi 1 1 Ward, tlio other artist member of tho commts-
HM,? :: , lion, but he had no doubt that he would also
P .' . voto for It.
K l All this was done In secret session. In tho
Hff If. . open meeting which followed, a resolution
H8 ', ' was introduced at tho suggestion of tho Mayor
HAi je to reconsider tho voto by which tho Plaza slto
H,' was chosen. Tho resolution was adopted, Qcn.
Hl) 1' Collls voting In tho negative. Then Hecorder
H& , (loll moved that tho Claromont sito bo cliOBcn.
K:' ':, Gen. Collls objected, llo questioned tho right
? : ;. of tho "so-called experts" of tho Municipal Art
BJBP. $ Commission to veto tho Plaza site, which was
Vl' ff selected, ho said, by a commltteo appointed by
VlS V ' the Lcgislaturo prior to tho creation of tho Art
I-) (j Commission, lie said ho would like to have
An f- tho opinion of tho Corporation Counsel as to tho
Wp. J powors of tho Munlclpnl Art Commission In tho
H ) : matter beforo his voto was recorded.
.'-.t , Hecorder GolT opposed tho suggestion. Ho
Is'-i. sold ho would not favor anything that would
H Kls' cause further delay in tho erection of tho monu
B I'-srS ment. "It is rather Into In tlio day to ask tho

Mr. August Bcbllentz, waa suffoosted In the
moke of a tiro that did (11,000 damsgoln the
fire-story tenemont at S20, East Ninety-fifth
street oarly yesterday morning. The flro startod
In a candy itoro kept by Morris Woroshlll, and
was discovered at 3:15 o'clock byPollcoman
Mahoney of tho Kast Eighty-eighth strcot
station, who, after ringing an alarm, dsvotod
himself to rousing tho ten families living In tho
house.
Tho tonants sought to reach tho roof, as the
balls wcro by this time Impassable from smoke,
and Mahoney and several firemen, who had as
cended through tho adjoining house, gathered
thcro to help them out,
Ono of tho last to .oach the ladder leading to
the scuttle was Mrs. Schllentz. who, from hav
ing broken hor legs about n yoar ago, was al
most bedridden. With hor were hor two daugh
ters, Josephine, who lived with hor on the third
floor, nnd Mrs. Kneel, who, with her husband,
lived on tho top floor, Josophlno went up tho
ladder first and reached back to assist, her
mother, who was also pushed ud by Mrs. Engel.
Hut oven with this double help tho old woman
wns not able to make the ascent. Mrs. Engel
went back for a chair, but the smoko had Be
come so thick that she could not toturntothe
ladder, and was forced to tako refuge on the lire
cscapo ot the rear.
From this tiro escape Mrs. Mlnnlo Strauss and
her fotirtoen-year-ohi daughter, carrying n large
doll, which for somo tlmo was thought to bo n
baby, had just been rescued by Fire Patrolmen
Leonard and Kelly, who lay down on the roof
with tholrhoadsund shoulders over thoedgo,
nnd, while tho llremen who had nono up to tho
roof with thom hold their legs, reached down and
fleked up Mrs. Strauss and Marraret, lifting
hem from tho top ot a short stepladder to tho
roof In safety. . , . , . ,
As soon as this was dono Fire Patrolman
Cloveland went down tho ladder at the scuttle
to llnd Mrs. Schllentz. She was lvlng near the
ladder, and died beforo an ambulanco called
from the Presbyterian Hospital could arrive.
Her husband lind become separated from the
rest of the family before reatblng tho ladder,
nnd found safety on the fire escape of the third
floor, where ho remained until the Are was out.

pushing Itaskin Stewart out of a second-story

As the Stewart woman had not been seriously

Magistrate Deuel did not take the matter very
seriously.

Whon tho jury awarded a verdict ot $1,000
against tho Long Island Railroad Company yes
terday In favor of John J. Lewis, one of tho vic
tims of the tally-ho party at tho Merrick cross
ing accident. Lawyer Kelly moved to sot tho
verdict aside on tho evldcnco and the excep

son denied tbo motion, but granted a stay of ex
ecution for thirty days. Mr. Kelly said be had
heard that two of the jurors visited tho scene of
tho accldont on Sunday last and asked ques
tions of tho residents concerning the accident.
This action, Mr. Kelly boliovcs, will probably
result in having the verdict set aside. Mr.

ho would be satisfied with $5,000.

The Pollco Board accepted yesterday a propo
sition of Philip Hhlnclandcr to glvo to the
force a medal for bravory skin to tho Bonnctt
modal in .bo Firo Departoht. Tho medal is to
bo known ks the "Rhlnol.ihdcr medal of vnlor."
It will bo of gold, ot the shupo of plain tcrosa
with tho ralsod figure of a policeman In an oval
wreath. Once a yo ir, on p rado d y, tho
M yor, or ono of tho Pollco Commissioners,
will glvo It o he policeman who has mo tdls
InguLhed hltmclf by personal bravery in the
preceding twelvemonth. ,
The only condition mndo by tho giver Is that
the recipient thall "havo performed an net of
exceptional valor at tho porll of his own Uto
and showing a high order ot Intelligence." Tho
Pollco Comml lonor aro to pick out tho man,
but if they can not agree, tho Mayor shall havo
the decldl g voto. fihduld no pollcoman have
distinguished himself ohough i any ono yoar
to da ervo tbo modal, nono shall be glvo 1.
Mr. Hhlnclandcr wroto that It was "tho car
nest desire ot tho donor that this medal shall
be awarded tn tho spirit in which It is present
ed to the deportment." Tho board assured
blm of Its appreciation and of tho gratitude of
the department.
The night stick came up for a hearing. Pres
ident Moss brought it up in tho following ro.o
lutlon: Resolved, That tho use of the night stick bo
discontinued, except on such posts as may bo
designated by tho Chief of Police."
Mr. Moss said thnt he had been misunder
stood. Ho wished to testify to his full appre
ciation of tho good qualities of tho pollco forco,
aud ho was anxious to got for It tho good will
of the people.
"Ono of tho most unpleasant habits of police
men," ho said, "Is that of constantly twirling
their night sticks on their thumbs. It makes a
bad impression on a stranger to seo a big pollco
man twirling what must look to blm Uko a cart
rung by a leathern thong, and tho belief prevails
that thoso who twirl will uso tho club, too, on
slight provocation. Kow.lhcro Is a reason for this
twirling. Tho night stick Is heavy and uncom
fortable to carry In tho bolt, I am told. It Is
easier to carry in tho hand. So carried, when
some suddon emergency arises, It comes down
upon a head easier than It It sat In Its socket.
If it was there, tho man would havo tlmo to
think."
By Mr. Moss a request tho thrco "sticks" of
tho forco wcru brought In and laid on the table,
tho long night stick of yollow locust, tho dny
stick of red rosewood with fancy turned hnndlo
and tho short but cmphatlo "billy." Mr. Moss
took up tho day stick.
"They say, ho commented as ho hewed tho
air with it, 'that thn night stick Is less danger
ous than this, yet, curiously enough, the strong
est pica for It is that to take it from a police
man Is to rob him of his defence. I think my
self that tho rosowood stick strikes a harder
blow, but it stays in tho belt. It can't bo
twirled. This (picking up tho locust) stays in
tho hand."
Commissioner Andrews suggested thnt n rulo
might bo mndo to lit tbo case, but Mr. Mots said
that no rulo would work. There was om now
forbidding twirling. Tho clubs passed from
hnnd to hand. Mr. Andrews wns examining
tho day stick when tho policeman detailed to
his ofllco, Edward Moran, who stood behind
him, said:
"It Is no good. It breaks right here," point
ing to the turned handle. "Ono heavy blow
and it snaps right off."
"Ono minute," said Mr. Andrews. "Hero Is
expert testimony from a man who has car
ried a club twenty years nnd never had a chargo
against him. Toll us about it, Mornn."
"Yes," Bold Mr. Mos, "toll us why the men
don'tjlke to carry the night stick In their belts."
"It Isn't tbo stick," said Policeman Mornn,
"It's the belt they don't like. It sags with tho
club in it, and wears out tho uniform so n man
has to get a now coat when nothing clso Is
wrong. The night stick Is all right. Thcro
is no stick like it to do duty with. Crooks aro
inoro afraid ot that than anything.
Mr. Andrews applauded. "Good for you,
Moran. Speak for your stick," ho said.
"It wouldn't be riirht if I didn't." said tho
champion ot the night stick. "It is 11 good
stick, and it don't hurt thom near as much as
they think. It isn't dead weight, liko this,"
pointing disdainfully to tho stick of rosowood.
"There s Bprlng in tho locust. I never heard of
a man getting killed with It."
"Well," said Mr. Moss, "that Is testimony
Btraight out. If tho heads of departments
would sometimes consult with their men, per
haps thoy would And tilings out. I know tho
men love tho night stick, yet wohnooipcrt
testimony thnt it doe hurt- But I liavo a
personal concern in this. If tho board does
not help me abolish the night stick, perhaps 1
may be dead In tlirco months. I got this letter
yesterday.'-
Tho President produced an anonymous letter
advising him to lay low" In tho matter of tho
night stick.
"Who nro you, anyhowl" tho lcttor went on.
"Say, what you don't know would mako a big
book. You aro n beaut. I would sign mv auto
graph, but I havo a presentiment thnt it would
be unhealthy, so I remain, unless you llnd 1110

"P. 8. I suppose you were taking tlmo bv
tho forelock, ou want to abolish tho night
stick for fear you might hocomo too fresh j our
self somo night whon you uro an ox-Comnils-sloncr
and get a tnsto of it. You aro n hairy
old boy."
"You don't suppose now, Mr. President,"
snld Mr. Andrews with much concern, "that
they would tako you by tho forelock, do you!"
Mr. Moss, who Is very bald, laughed.
"They would havo a bard tlmo doing It," ho
said.
Chief McCiillagh hnd enmo up to tako a hand
In tlio discussion. Tho hoard nsked what ho
thought of tho night stick.
"My oxperienco 1b," said the Chief, "thnt It Is
a useful weapon when judiciously adminis
tered. Sometimes, no doubt, it Is not. Somo
men can stand a little hit; others cannot. Now,
let mo show you." Tho Chler, uslnu' Patrolman
Mornn as 0 110-flgiirc, proceeded to lllublrato
what ho could dt wlthiinlght ttleknnd liciwlt
wns usolcss at loso nunrtcrs. Sir. Andrews
said that thn criticism made In tho board waB
upon the twirling habit of tho men. The Chief
responded Hint It was a violation of rulo 152.
'Yes. nnd mom thnn half tho forco vlolntes
rulo 152 every night," interjected Mr. Moss.
"If they do," said tbo Chief. "It will be here
after tho'Captnlns' fault. I told them only yes
terday tn stop tho practice. Tho men will obey.
If mndo to do It, I think it would be wrong to
tnke tbo night stick from them. If a man is
not fit to carry a night stick, ho Is not lit to bo a
policeman. '11m locust Is not hi dangerous ns
represented. Pollco Htirgeim Fliihrcr. who is
ono of thn niiKt eminent surgeons in tho city,
tells mo that ho knows of no cnto ot a skull
fractured by It In his nhnlocTpcricnea."
"What makestlt fo effective, then," askod
Mr. Moss.
"You can stnnd a tough off with It," replied
tho Chief promptly, "this way." Ho mndo a
nweep with thu long club nt arm's length nnd
Commissioners Andrews and Smith, who were
within rnnue, ducked their bends. Thn Chief
smiled. "Ho can't get nt you with his knife."
ho said. "Then you can call assistance with
It. It has a vilce. which tho ruuivood has
not. But Its ha k Is worse than lis blti."
Mr. Moss wanted to know why H)rnes nbol
ished thonlKlit stick. Tho Chief sliiugircd his
shoulders; ho couldn't toll. No doubt Mr.
Hyrncs had his reasons. Commissioner An
drews remembered woll why It wns biought
back.
"it was whon n poliremnn wns snndbneged
and killed In tho Twcutv-flrst precinct," ho
said, "Thnt night when thn men imirrlicd out
with tholr night sticks agnln they struck terror
to tho hearts of tbo toiiKhs.and I here w as penco."
Chief," said Mr. Mot, "tho tontlmunt Is
ngninst my resolution. Will you engage to
mako tho men carry their sticks In their belts.
"I will tuko tho contract," said Chief Mct'ul
lagh. "Very well, wo will let the resolution llo over

promise can bo kept, I do want to wipo out
