A city i!de shifting of police llciitcnnntfl Is Impending in Philadelphia. This in formation was disclosed by Mnyor Moore in talks today with friends just before leaving for Philadelphia. Tlio Mnyor let it be known that the placing of Llentennnt Marple In charge of the Rtatlon house In the Fifteenth ward. Judge Rrown's home ward, was only u prelude to similar chnnges nil over the city. Mr. Moore came here to address the Kiwanis Club IaH night. In bis ad dress ho Indicated Ills readiness to de clare war on Senator Penrose when he toitl ho would not bare Philadelphia ontrollcd by "outside legislative In fluence." So far as the police are concerned, the Mayor will not stand for the old system by which politicians, Ramblers and crooks were able to approach police officials or plain "cops" and "slip" tbem something in exchange for an of ficial blindness on the part of the police. "The law must be superior to the lawless," said the Mayor. Expect Many Deserters More than that, the Mayor believes that this drlvo against crooks, gam blers, dope flcndR nnd dope purveyors and their alliance with police will do more than anything else to break up tbc new job combine In Philadelphia. The Mayor does not think that the combine, which Is in sympathy with so-called "old times" and the "wide open city," can long stand out against a determined smash at the ring of vice and politics. The Mayor expects that a u result more and more ward lender, ho now arc aligned with the new lob combine, will quickly desert the shaking combine and plead to bo taken into the 'dminlstratlon's favor. The Mayor will accept such political support only so long as nothing in the shape of favors for the viee nnd politi cal ring Is sought. Those who "come Into the administration circle" must do so with the understanding that they will support the plans of the Mnyor and of his independent allies in the straightforward movement 'for a clean city and or a clean clt.V government. The drive has been begun In the Fif teenth ward, where it is said in police circlet, that friends of Judge Drown were able to cause the police in the district to "wink their eyes" at nil sort of vice and crime. The Fifteenth ward, once the abiding place of well-kuown citizens, a residential ward, has become, according to Information placed in the nanus of the .Mnyor, a sort of a veiled tenderloin and not much "veiling at that." liven Vnrc men In the wurd, who long have opposed Judge Urown's control, hae expressed their pleasure ut the turu of events cvon though the judge nnd his friends are credited with being the head and front of the Vare-Rrowu-f'unnlng-liaiu combination. They feel that way. they explained to administration lend ers, simply because of their buttle for ard control. In the shifting of police lieutenants it Is expected that the Tenth ward, the home ward of Thomas W. ('turning Iiam, will be a spccinl object of attack deiplto Cunningham's dec'nrntlon thnt he has not been in a station for ten or fifteen years. Then will come the Twenty-fifth ward where Magistrate "Hilly" Campbell has "beat the others to It" and deserted the combine "and Mnd with the administration. "Jim" I'arey's Fifth ward will again receive attention. The Mayor will not permit his home an to get nnywherc near deserving of the description "the blood v Fifth." lcn "Huek" Devlin, in the Kighth ward, Senator Penrose's home ward, will have to watch his P's and Q's. ttx-Ar Noll In the Thirty-seventh, who Is ii close- friend of (leorge W. Coles, Jill probably hnve the pleasure of see ing nnother lleutennnt In the district In which he holds forth. Itnhert Grier, Penrose lender of the Eighteenth ward, unother who support 'd the Mayor for the mayoralty, and Jim now consorts with the new com bine, will receive consideration in the K'ne connection. Rlnkelv 1). Mc JSvhn, of the Twenty -fourth ward, In bother who Is not as much In the good graces of the administration as once he wns. To Keep Close Watch 1'iirthcrmore, the police in the dis 'ncts which Richard Wcgleiu and JetT E. Smith, Twenty-ninth una rorty-seventh wurds, are the political Powers will bo closely watched. And, of course, tho Thirty-eighth ward, where Purchasing Agent Acker and otincllinon Cans ure the lenders, will twelve nioro than passing consideru ' ion in the matter of iliee control. The drlvo against Acker and (inns dl be nun of the features of the ud diilstratlnn policy in the Thirty 'n;hth. The Mayor is determined thnt 'ins shall not "get uwuy with" with professions of loynlty to the udininls 'ration at the same time that he Is Joting huge sums to the Municipal urt over tho vigorous protests of the Major. While this shifting of lieuteu ntits in the wards where leaders of the new job combine are supposed to be (ontlniml on I'uir Pourtrrn, Column Two Mnyor Says People Stand by Him in Political War Mlentoviii, Iii,( Dec. .'10.

Cornell grad uate and eccentric, remains in his home at West Chester, with doors closed and shades drawn, defying the police to ar rest him for an attack upon his mother yesterday, made, it Is believed, under the impulse of a sudden tit of Insanltv. The man Is a distant relative of Sen ator Penrose. Chief of Police Entrikln, whom Jones menaced yesterday afternoon with an nutoiiiatic. when the official sought to an est him. said today lie would mnke no attempt to force nn entrance to Jones home on North Walnut street. I 11 pick him up when ho comes out, said the chief today. "I nee no need of sending my men in after him. ninl thus perhaps sacrificing one of their lives or Jones'.

Yesterdn she swore out a warrant for his arrest before Justice of the Peace S. M. Pox son, charging him with assault und bat- lery. According to Chief Entrikln, .Tone"' ' uttack on his mother occurred nt the luncheon table yesterday.

COPY COMES TO LIGHT AS MAYOR MAKES PROBE A mimeographed copy of, the nnony j nious letter picking llnws in the $7, 'OOO.fMlO municipal loan, a letter re garded by Mayor Moore ns a scheme to frighten bidders, has come to light. This is one of several topics, unad- dressed and unsigned, which found their I wny Into the hniids of bidders. Follow ing the clrculution of these copies. three of the successful bidders with drew their offers. Who had these mimeographed, copies of the original letter made.? Who cir culated them among bankers nnd brokers, anonymously, in an apparent effort'tb' Impair tlie clty's'credlt? " This is what Mayor Moore wishes to learn, nnd is" the object of nn ihveitign tlon he is hnvlng made. It is a mys tery he intends to solve. It was learned today that the orlglnnl of the mimeographed copies was writ ten by Morris Hocklus, of the law firm of Morgan, Lewis & Rockius. C. P. Linenw caver, vice president of the Commercial Trust Co., one of the three concerns which withdrew their bids for the loan, readily identified the mimeographed cony as a copy of the Morgan, Lewis & Rockius letter. "Yes, I saw thnt letter of .Mr. Rockius," he said. W The Anonymous Letter Here is the anonymous mimeographed copy of the letter: Dear Sir You have submitted to us a copy of the ordinance of the Select and Common Council of the city of Phlludelphin, approved the finth day of December, lftll), as amended by an ordinance approved the 18th day of November, 1020, nnd have asked us to advise you as to the effect of Section 4 of the ordi nance, which contains the sinking fund provisions for the repayment of the loan. Tills section of the ordinance pro vides for the payment annually out of the proceeds of the loan during the period of construction of the work for which the loan is created and for one year nfter thV completion of said work of construction, of the sums required to pay the install ments due the sinking fund, nnd for the discharge within fifty yeurs of the principal of the loan, together with a sum sufficient to pay the in terest on the lonn. It further pro vides that after the lapse of one year from completion of the work of construction, nn annual tax of OVi per cent on the pnr value of the loan, shall be levied to pay the interest and the principal of the loan within fifty years from the date of issue. You will note that until ouo year nfter completion of the work the Interest on the loan nnd the sinking fund for payment of principal are both taken out of tho proceeds of the loan Itself, and that there is no provision for the creation of a sinking fund by taxation until one year after the con struction work is completed. Question Time nf Completion Tlie time of completion is entirely indefinite. It Is conceivable that the construction work might he post poned for yenrs. or never completed, in which case the provisions for the creation of a sinking fund out of taxation might be correspondingly postponed or never go into effect. This section of the ordinance is under a constitutional amendment applying to the city of Philadelphia, ndonted at the genernl election of last i November, which radically changes the previous constitutional provision in forcu with regard to the sinking funds of the city of Philadelphia loans. This required u tax to be levied at the time of the creation ('ontlniml on I'aeo rourtrrn.
