I' It vras fully expected that It would lUt tip tho
Kl ranks at yesterday's sitting nnd to nuika ready
B tot; tbo organization ot tho now department.
B' To that end two Deputy Chtcfi, two Impec
B ton, and two Captains will bo wanted. Ap
K parently tho bonrd had Intendod to appoint
jMt? them all, but a bitch occurred In the pvogrammo
Hr Which delayed Its execution until o-day at
Ksf least. Tho hitch was said to bo in tho now
mpfa charter. Tho Commissioners wcro (credited
B.t? with a dcslro to ninko Capt. William 8. Dov
B&1 ery of tho West l!25th street station a Doputy
Bj Chief. Dorcry Is a strong Tammany man, n
UK. personal friend of Air. Crokcr, and Buffered
f much during and since tho Lexow days. This
V was to be his reward. Hut tho charter was
ft found to block tho way. Section 1187, which
Wt prescribes the mode of appointing tho first
W'S-i .Deputy Cblofs of tho now clty.sets forth that thoy
tf Uh ihnji'bo choson from among tho Deputy Chiefs
III 'and tbo Inspectors transferred from tho older
mt eommunittea. 80 with tho Inspectors, who
K' I Shall bo taken from among tho tianefcrrcd In
K (pectors and Captains. Tho trouble was with
f, i tho word "transferred." Dut for that Dovory
52 - might bo mado an Inspector nnd tmiiiodlately
1 rf" advanced to tho grado of Deputy Chief. As It
WM I " 1 stands, hb must stop at tho Inspectorship for
WM the .present. Ho can becomo . Deputy Chief
1 1 . only by way of tho clrll service ladder.

bbbbbiI Sf i It it correct, as seems likely, Dcvcry wlllprob
l ably bo mado an Inspeeior to-day. It 1s pro-
Wmm ir dieted that Inspector Mclaughlin will bo ono
U I .of tbo two new Deputy Chiefs. Ho iilso suffered
t) .,. much In tho evil days that followed tho Laxow
f Vv inquiry. Ho was out ot tho den irtmcnt nearly
bbW ' two years, during a part of whit h ho Iny in U10
HP4 Tombs, but fought his way back triumphantly

Mr. Williams ran against Mr. Clapp four

ing. Mr, Buckloy's family Insist thnt tho
shooting was accidental nnd Coroner Guy Is
Inclined to that belief. Detoctivo Sorgeant
James McCarthy reported tho caso to Pollco
Headquarters as ono of suicide. McCarthy's
report was mado after a careful oxnminntlon
ot the position of tho body when found. Ac
cording to his rensonlng It was highly lm
prnbablo that a wound such as killed Mr.
Buckley could havo resulted from nccldontat
shooting. Tho bullet ontorcd tho right eldo ot
tholhond, a Uttlo back of and nn Inch and n half
abovo tbo ear. It went through tlio head,
coming out on tho othor sldo about hnlf an Inch

Christmas holidays with his parents and was
to. havo returned to collego yostordny morning.
On Wednesday night bis father told him to get

city. He said ho would rldo to tho station
with him.
Father and son wero both up at 7:30 o'olock
in the morning. Thoy took breakfast to
gether and Mr. Buckley seemed In his usual
'good spirits. After breakfast he told tbo coach--man
to havo tho carriago at tho door at twenty
minutes beforo 0. Young Buckley then went
to bis room to pack his satchel.
1 Nelthor Mrs. Buckley, her son, nor any of
tho servants saw Mr. Buckley leavo tho hotiBb,
Tho llrst intimation they had that he had gono
to tho boatbouse, which Is only a fow hundred
feet away, was when they hoard two shots
como from that direction. Down on tho boach
Mr. Buckley kept a turget for pistol practice
and shotgun, and ho generally shot at it irom
tho boatbouse.
At flttoon minutes beforo f young Buckloy
started to look for his father. Remembering
the shots, ho went down to tho boatbouse. His
father wns seated In an upholstorod choir In a
corner. Blood was flowing from tho wound In
his head, and his rovolvor, a 41-callbro weapon,
was lying on the arm of the chair.
Young Buckley tried to rouse his father, and
falling, ran to tho Iioubo lo.tcll tho nows. Dr.
Carl Schmuck of Ccdnrhurst was summoned,
and also Dctcctlvo McCarthy. Dr. Schmuck,
after an examination, paid that tnero was no
hopo for tho injured man. A few mlnutos
later Mr. Buckley died. , ,
Tba revolver had only contalnod two car
tridges. Four of tho chambers were empty,
and only ono of tho two cartridges had been
axplodea. Ono ot tho two Bhpta heard, by tho
household Is supposed to hnveibecn fired by a
man who was snooting further down tho beach.
Tho chair In which Mr. Buckley was foudd
was not In a lino with tho door of thobonthouso
and while sitting in it he could not have shot at
tho targot without leaning over the left bide of
tho chair.
When tbo story that Mr. Buckley had com
mitted sulcido reached this city men in tlio dry
goods trado Immediately concluded tbut It was
tho result ot his having been dropped from tho

had practically established. Tho members
of his family deny thirt ho has been In bad
spirits, but acquaintances, who decline to al
low their names to ho uecd, say that ho was
A ery dfr-consolutc.
Mr. Dunhnni said vesterdny that Mr. Buck
ley's death was a complete surprise to him.
Ho rould not bcllco that ho had , committed
suicide. Ho declined to give any explanation
of tho dropping of Mr. Buckley from tho firm,
but declared that the best feeling existed be

As far as Mr. Dunham knew, Mr. Buckley was
not in pecuniary difficulties. .
