of entertaining the next national conven

DUTIES OF DETECTIVES.
I'roetor Otoe Susrj;e.tions Are Tuz
zllng the Police Official.
The exoneration of Detective Froctor
by the Commissioners, as announced In the
Sundjy Times, was based upon the grounds
that In the case pnrsued in the Proctor
case tho officer was acting under the or
ders of Lieut. HoUlnberger and in ac
cordance with tho manual and tbat he was
strictly within tbe line ot bis duty as an of
ficer detailed to perform detective doty.
Thli decision Is accompanied by a sugges
tion that the manual be "so amended as to
forbid the use of the detecthe force .ex
cept for tho detection and prevention of
crime." It has been suggested that as
lolatIon of the Edmunds law, with which
Maxwell was charged, must necessarily
be ekissed as "crime," it will be Eome
what difficult to amend the law without
discriminating as to the character of
crime that It Is Intended detctthes shall
Major Moore was asked this morning ns
to the changes likely to be made, to reach
the deiired end, and he said the matter
bad not been yet referred to him. The
amendment, however, was something that
would have to be thought out. He could
not designate the lines In which it was
desired to change the manual.
The Commissioners say they have not yet
taken np the subject, but from what was
said It is inferred that their Intention
Is to prohibit the detectives from having
anthin,r to do with misdemeanors.
In other words, that their duties shall be
confined to the "detection and prevention"
of crimes of greater gravity than that in
which Proctor was employed.
