A CORRECTION WITH AN EXPLANATION.
Citizens making complaints against polico offi
cers frequently fail to appear to prosecute. Ana
-when they don't, the officer is always asked if he
knows why the complainant is not present; he in
variably says “ no.”
The presiding Commissioner asks him to matre
his statement, and sometimes the officer swears to
it, and sometimes he doesn t. But in all cases when
the complainant does not appear, most exaggerated
lies are frequently told by the officer of the citizen
complaining, who not being present to deny, is
taken for gospel tiuth.
The reporter for this paper publishes the state
in nts of these officers for what they are worth.
MR. PAYNE 8 CASE.
Citizen Robert 8. Payne says the reason why he was
not present to press his charge against Officer
Churchill was that be was misled as to the hour,
and found on arriving at Headquarters that the
court had taken a recess. He returned soon after,
and found his complaint had been dismissed, failing
to be present to prosecute
WHAT HAPPENED IN HIS ABSENCE.
The case was called, and the following proceedings
were duly reported, the reporter not knowing either
officer or citizen.
Citizen Robert 8. Payne charged Officer Churchill
with assaulting him without cause, and after the
assault failing to arrest him.
He didn’t appear to prosecute.
The officer said he arrested a man named Robert
Powell, in the Bowery, for violating the Excise Law.
Going up the Bowery with his prisoner, this man
Payne wanted to haul his prison r some hing, and
he shoved him back. This man Payne ha 1 served
sixteen years in the State Prison, and when he
didn't go when told, tho officer struck him on the
arm. The prisoner’s license was revoked yesterday
by the Board of Excise.
Mr. Payne called on the reporter, and said that he
never was in State Prison, that he is not the charac
ter that he is described to be, that on igaku-g in
(xPayne) is jp. farmed by fciie officer that, Le
did net as reported,
as io the first allegation Of Nfr. Payne, the reporter
has no knowledge, does not know tho man.
To the second allegation the reporter affirms his
report to bo true, and if Payne will commerce a
suit against tho officer, the reporter is willing to
go into court and swear to the truth of the report.
The reporter does not write from memory.
It very frequently happens that when a citizen
has been abused, on sober second thought he con
cludes to let the matter drop, and the officer on
being asked why the complainant is absent, often
foolishly invents a lot of lies regarding tho man,
and the cascjs dismissed.
lUght of fl i’diig tile reporter thinks he is perform
ing his duty to give publicity to these slanderous
proceedings. The citizen has always a good action
at law when willfully slandered, even by an officer,
The case following that of Mr. Payne’s was much
Worse. It may be true, it may be false. The libel
ed party, so far, has not made complaint.
Like the
from shorthand notes.
GEORGE HASiBEI’B “KARACKTER.”
O’NeSL lhe Twentieth Precinct, struck George
faasßet, of No. 522 West Twenty-ninth street, and
did not arrest him. Hasset did not appear to prose
cute.
“Do you know why fiasset is not here ?” asked
the Commissioned.
•• No, unleec he is afraid of having his character
exposed-. He was arrested nine years ago for stab
bing hifi brother with h knife. He was arrested for
assaulting his wife, and got six months. After he
cays I struck him, he came to the station-house and
demanded an apology.
“Did you apologize?” asked Com. McClave.
“ No, siree. After that he told one of our officers
if I would get a job for him he wouldn’t press the,
charge. I said probably by and by I would get it’
for him in Stato Prison.”
Those are public proceedings, and tho reporter
will continue to give them, as he has for many
years. The man responsible is the officer. And it
is lor the citizen himself to say, if libeled, whether
he will go for the officer that has as little control
©ver his tongue as he sometimes has over his club.
The reporter always sustains tho officer when he
believes him right; but when be will sometimes
swear that he only fanned tho man, when in fact ho
ran his ciub in the man’s side, tho reporter will
hardly be a party to justify him.
The Dispatch representative is not addicted to
phantom reporting.
SAVED NOTHING IN NINETEEN YEARS.
Pellet of the Eighth Precinct, failed to get ft new
pair of pantaloons. Inspector Thorne appeared
loaded down with stripes on his arm like the golden
stairs, and said the charge was true.
Pellet also said the charge was true. He buried a
boy seventeen years old lately, and ho was hard up.
“ How long on the force?” asked Com, McClave.
“ Nineteen years.”
•• And you hadn’t money to pay for the make up
•of a pair of pants ?”
DIDN’T KNOW OF THE FIRE.
“The charge is correct,” said Dcsgrove, who left
his post in Varick street. “Standing at the'ccrner
of Varick and Houston streets,” he said, “ a citizen
came up and said he heard the cry of murder. It
was a working man as had got assaulted, and it took
us fifteen minutes to investigate.”
“ There was a fire on his post,” said Capt McDon
nell, •' at 10:45. I was at tho fire—s minutes to 11.
Ho didn’t come to the firo, and I couldn’t find him
at it. When I did find him he was coming down
the street with two men, laughing and talking. I
asked if anything had happened on his post? No.
I asked if a car had been blocked on his post ? No.
Then I told him there had been a fire on his post.
He said he was on the other end of his post. I
then told him that I had been on his post 27 min
utes looking for him, and he said he had been up
and down the street with these men, they had get
in trouble.”
There was a second charge failing to report the
fire on his post.
He did not know anything about it.
IN THE BOOK OF NUMBERS.
Intoxication was the charge against Colgan of the
Twenty-ninth Precinct. Capt. Williams said the
charge was correct. Tho officer said he was *sick, :
not drunk. He had caught cold in his stomach,
and he took a glass of brandy and camphor to get
relief and it stupefied him.
“ There is another charge pending against tha
officer,” said Capt. Williams, who appeared in gold
lace at the cuffs of his coat and gold lace at the
cuffs of his kids.
“We will finish this case first?” said Commis
sioner McClave.
Dr. Satterlee said he was called in on the evening
of the 17th. He found the officer had been drink
ing liqu-or. He didn’t etate that he had been un
weH. He wasn’t fit to do duty.
“Not on the force a year,” remarked the Commis
sioner.
Sergeant Smittburger said that on his way to
breakfast at eight o’clock he found tho officer at
Thirty-first street, hugging a lamp-post, and a
crowd around him; saw his condition, and took him
to the station-house. •
“ Any statement to make ?” asked Com. McClave.
“I had an extra prisoner to take to court,” said
the officer, “and I took her to Judge Patterson’s
court. She was seventy-one,”
“Ho did not take her at all,” said the sergeant.
“He discharged her on the way to court, and he got
drunk. He didn’t say ho was sick.”
SECOND ‘CHARGE—WORSE THAN THE FIRST.
Sergeant Cahill said the officer allowed a prisoner
to escape on the way to court—this old woman, aged
seventy-one. The sergeant said he took an extra
prisoner to court—this old woman of seventy-one.
lie said he put her in the court cell at Jefferson Mar
ket. There was no en ry of the old woman being
delivered there. Cdgan said his prisoner was a
young mulatto, aged seventeen, while his prisoner
was white, aged seventy, lie didn’t take the old
woman to court, and lost her somewhere on the
way.
The officer said be took the prisoner to court, and
loft her in the lobby of the prison.
The sergeant said no entry of her reception was
found on the prison books.
TAKING THE BLAME.
Quinn, of the Twenty-ninth Precinct, failed to
report a burglary that had been committed at No.
64 West Twentieth street. It happened on the side
street, fifty-four feet off post. He said he was tech
nically guilty. He was called-off post to make an
examination. He saw the officer on the post, and
thought he had better report it. The officer on post
■didn’t report the burglary, and thus the complaint
came to be made.
“ What is the character of tho officer ?” asked Com.
McClave.
“ This officer is of as good stuff as they make
them,” said Capt. Williams.
“He is a good officer?” remarked the Commis
sioner.
“He is better than seven hundred like him.”
The Commissioner did not quite understand these
conundrum answers.
AN OFFICER DRUNK IN COURT.
McCann, of the Sixth Precinct, was charged with
being under the influence in the Special Sessions,
■while sitting in court waiting to give his testimony.
Sergeant Granger said the charge was correct. Mc-
Cann wanted his case adjourned; he had two wit
nesses out of town that would prove him sober.
Tho Commissioner ordered the case on. The officer
said it was bis day off, and he had been twelve hours
on duty.
Sergeant Granger said the officer arrested a man
for stealing telegraph wire. Tho officer was the
chief witness, and he was not able .to give his evi
dence on the w’itness-stand, and the prisoner was
discharged.
The officer said when he was called he sat in court
by the stove, asleep, and was dizzy and tired cut,
and he gave the testimony the best way he could.
He drank no liquor that morning, but the blood
rushed to his head. He said he wai not in tho habit
of drinking.
The sergeant said the man’s breath smelled sour.
Mr. Hogan said he sat on the same seat with the
officer, who fell asleep. He thought the officer
tired out, but not drunk.
The case was adjourned, to get the testimony of
Justice Smith.
WITH A FEMALE.
“Thirteen minutes with a female,” was the
charge against O’Keofe.
The officer said the lady came to him that night
and said boys had beeu annoying her by following
Jher. He askel where they were. She said, “Up
the street.” He started up with her, and walked
three blocks and couldn’t find them, but found the
roundsman.
“I asked the cause of being so long with the wo
man,” said the roundsman. “He said she was ask
ing the way to Canal street.
IN A LIQUOR SALOON.
Mahoney, oi the Sixth Precinct, was found com
ing out of a liquor saloon in Walker street. He said
•there was no other place to go and he had nobody
to cover his post; was in about three minutes.
“ 1 saw him a short time before that—about three
minutes—and he disappeared. Passing the door,
he came out,” said the roundsman.
•* Where was the closet?” asked tho Commis
sioner. ’
“ Back of the store.”
“One hour, and you found it necessary to enter a
liquor store?” remarked the Commissioner.
CALLED OUT.
“ He told me,” said Roundsman Burns, “that he
went in to warm his fingers, in 119 Walker street.
Officer Jenny said be saw two figures in the plac»,
rapped on the door, and coming to it, he fouhtl the
men belonged to the place.
•• Ho told m ’ Le went in to warm himself,” said
the roundsman.
The sn<,vnd charge against Jenny was being in a
liquid store up in Yorkville, whore he lives.
“ 1 found tho officer there in full uniform,” said
the roundsman. “It was his day off.”
The officer said he was in about ten minutes.
Mr. Reid, who keeps a liquor saloon at Eighty
third street and Third avenue, said ho called tho
officer in to get some information in relation to
a check.
Finnan, Twenty-third Precinct, found in the same
saloon by Roundsman Hession, said the proprietor
called him in, and tho roundsman called h-im out.
“Are you in the habit of calling officers in?”
asked Com. McClave of Reid.
“ It happened so this morning,” said Boid, laugh
ing.
“ Don’t you call any more officers in,” said tho
commissioner.
He might have added that they know the way
themselves without the “invite.”
HIS BUNDLE.
Stebbens, Fifteenth Precinct, charged with failing
to be found on post, said he saw a young man with
a bundle. The young man started on a run, and he
ran. He slipped and fell, and tho young fellow shot
ahead. He continued the chase into the Seventeenth
Precinct, where he lost the fellow, who ran into a
tenement house and slammed the door in his face.
LITTLE CASES.
Clark, found in a laundry in Greenwich street,
said it was cold, and ho went in to get a warm.
Hughes, Twentieth Precinct, when found in a
restaurant in Tenth avenue and Thirty-first street,
said ho was called down to Thirty-second street to
quell a row. It stopped when he got down, and he
stepped into a restaurant to get a cup of coffee.
While there the row commenced again, and ho went
out and made an arrest.
Campbell, Fifth Precinct, was absent from reserve
in tho station-house. Ha went home, took a bath,
afterward sat down to take a smoke and read tho
news, and fell asleep.
Tompkins, Twenty-second Precinct, drank some
sweet cider at home. No sooner had he gone on
post than be had to take a run and dart into a
liquor saloon to get relief. Ho hadn’t drank beer or
liquor in four months before that.
Burns, Twentieth Precinct, felt cold, and went
into a liquor saloon to get something hot.
Bruner, caught riding on a bob-tail car, said he
was jogging along from relieving point to the sta
tion-house, and seeing several boys on a one-horse
jigger, he jumped on to arrest them. They jumped
off and he remained on.
Hackett was again up for failing to bo found on a
post on Broadway, whero there are no liquor stores.
He said the roundsman missed him—very likely
When conducting an old lady across the street.

THE BOARD’S MEETING.
Tho Beard met, as usual, ou last Wednesday
morning, and held the following trials:
DISOBEDIENCE OF ORDERS,
Fireman Samuel Wood, of Engine Company No.
39, was charged with general disobedience of orders.
Tho testimony was very brief, and the Board laid
tho ease over for future consideration.
ABSENCE WITHOUT LEAVE.
Private J. J. McCullen, of Engine Company No.
IG, was charged with being absent without leave for
seven hours and forty-five minutes on December
20th. Ho pleaded guilty and said he had been taken
sick during the night, and had no one to send to
the engine house, and he overslept himself.
His case was laid over.
Private William E. McDonald, of Engine Company
No. 44, was charged with failing to count properly a
station alarm; he pleaded guilty and said the sta
tion alarm came in upon the “ combination gong ”
“G— ’» «« «7^_”; he went to the station and
found that there was no fire there but the station
was “G—” “3—” ” 7—’’, to which he at once pro
ceeded.
His case wRs also laid over.
D‘lD NOT FOLLOW THE TENDER.
Private Joseph J. Ncmphins, of Engine Company
No. 1, was charged with failing to follow the tender
of the engine while proceeding to a fire on Decern
her 20th. The case was laid over.
NEGLECT OF DUTY.
Private Samuel T. Warren, of Engine Company
No. 18, was charged with failing to make a proper
entry upon the journal of the return to company
quarters of Assistant Engineer Tobin, while the ac
cused was on house watch on December 20th.
The case was temporarily laid over.
UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LIQUOR.
Assistant Engineer John J. Tobin, of Engine
Company, No. 18, was charged with being absent
without leave on December 22d; also with being
under the influence of liquor on December 22d, and
also with failing to report for duty on the same
date.
Assistant Foreman Kerrigan testified that Tobin
was not in a fit condition to do duty, but from what
cause he could not say.
Private Francis J. Gray could not swear that To
bin was drunk; he seemed to be in pain. Tobin
was in bed and rolled out of it on the floor; witness
helped him into bed again. While ho laid upon the
floor he was moaning as if in pain, and he did not
seem to be drunk.
Private Wm. J. O'Connor said Tobin acted as if he
was in great pain. Ho was moaning, and witness
thought ho had cramps; he did not-act as though he
was drunk.
Tobin, in his own behalf, said he was not well:
had had pains all over his body, and he took fifteen
grains of quinine to relieve him. He got asleep and
overslept himself, and upon going to breakfast ho
took one drink, and that was all.
Commissioner Purroy said: “The evidence taken
does not show you were drunk, but I believe you
were.”
The case was laid over.
Private Timothy Sullivan, of Engine Company
No. 1, was arraigned on several charges, tho most
important one “ being under the influence ol'liquor
on January Ist.”
Private Joseph Ncmphins stated that the accused
was going in and out of the company quarters every
five or ten minutes—in all ho was gone about fifteen
minutes; the accused called tho witness hard
names ; witness could not say the accused was
drunk, but he thought he was, on account of his
using such bad language.
Private Daniel Kennelly testified that he saw no
signs of liquor on Sullivan.
Assistant Engineer Thomas King testified ho did
not believe the accused was drunk; he could count
stations correctly, and showed no signs of liquor
upon him.
Assistant Foreman “Eddy’’Tully testified that
Sullivau was so drunk that ho (the assistant fore
man) put another man in his place on house-watch.
When Sullivan came into quarters he was not in a
fit condition to stand house-watch; he showed all
signs of intoxication upon him; his breath smelt of
liquor and he was unsteady in his gait; then when
charged by Tully that ho was drunk, he said: “ You
are a ; I am not drunk.”
Sullivan was also charged with inviting a female
in company quarters, and she was very much un
der the influence of liquor—and upon being remon
strated with by the house watchman, who bad to
put her out, the accused used language which we
cannot publish.
Again he was charged by Assistant Foreman Tul
ly with refusing to leave the floor of the house
when ordered. And again he was charged with say
ing to Tully, “You , I don’t care a
for you. You are no good anyhow. Go and
Private James Dunn testified that in his opinion
Sullivan was under the influence of liquor; he
could not walk straight; he looked wild-like, and by
the abusive and foul language he used to Assistant
Foreman Tully, proved to him that Sullivan was
under tho influence of liquor.
Private James Peek testified that he could not
say that Sullivan was drunk; he might have been
drinking.
Engineer Thomas McCabe testified that he had
heard loud language between Sullivan and Private
they were quarrelling.
Private Joseph J. Nomphins testified that a wo
man followed Sullivau into the engine-house, and
he, (being on house watch) put her out; the woman
did not appear to be drunk; she had no hat on.
Assistant Foreman Tully testified that he told
Sullivan to go to bed, for the reason that he was not
in a fit condition to remain upon the floor, and
Sullivan said: “you
Sullivan took the stand and testified that he was
not under the influence of liquor, nor did he use
tho language charged against him; he had had only
two glasses of liquor that day.
The case was laid over.

Department for the prompt, skillful and efficient
manner in which they controlled tho fire in my re
sidence on Saturday evening last.
They not only subdued it at once where it was
raging, but prevented its advancement, and fortu
nately controlled it entirely with portable fire ex
tinguishers, thereby avoiding great loss, which of
necessity accrues from flooding a private residence,
where the fire is confined to one upper floor.
They are deserving of great praise lor their skill

denco in Clinton street, on Tuesday last. Mr. Con- 1
lon, who was a caulker by trade, contracted a severe

member oi tho Exempt Firemens Association, many
of whom were present on the above occasion.
Tho Board of Directors met during the week, and .
considered many questions relating to the Mutual j
AiJ. The subject has for some time past occupied
tho attention of the Committee on By-Laws. The
Chairman, Mr. John J. Blair, reported that they had
consulted with counsel, and would be ready to sub
mit their report at the next meeting of the Associ- I
a tion. {
The Board also appointed a special committee? of L
which George R, Conner is chairman, to wait upon B
such of the members as intend to visit the Capital -
in March next, and endeavor to secure a limited
delegation—one that would be a credit to the or
ganizAtfou- an d would call for the plaudits af all
firemen.
Th? excursionists have arranged to stop in Balti
more and Philadelphia upon their return, and from
accounts already received will meet with such a wel
coming reception at the hands of the old volunteer
firemen of those cities, as will bring back the
memories of similar scenes enacted upward of a
quarter of a century ago. We trust that the efforts
of the committee may prove successful. Secretary
Bishop announced that he would be found at the
rooms on Monßay and Thursday of each week until
10 P. M., for tho transaction of the business of the
Association.

Commissioner Poillon, since his assumption of (
office, has evidently exerted himself to the utmost I
in his endeavor to perfect the organization he so I
ably controls, and, with the valuable assistance of I
Chief Nevins, tho department is to-day in a flourish- ’
ing condition. So saith these interested in fire
matters.
Tho introduction of new contrivances to promote
the vigilance of the force, though at first meeting <
with opposition, are now looked’ upon with more <
favor. The leniency shown those derelict in punch- 1
ing tho indicator has had a beneficial effect, while 2
the half hourly visits to tho latter aro now regular- v
ly made by “ the man on watch.”
To insure the presence of the police force at con- 1
flagratjons, an electric bell has been placed in the {
telegraph room at police headquarters, which, in
turn, communicates with each of the alarm stations y
in the city. The thoughtfulness of this arrange
ment is at once apparent.
The valuable property lying along our river front
will Dow.be more thoroughly protected in case of
- The long needed and 011 suggested fire boat
will shortly be placed in commission, and will
prove a valuable acquisition to the present force.
Several of the veteran horses in the Department
were sold last week, owing to their being sc far
worn out in tile service as to render them unfit lor 1
fire duty. B
Excellent judgment has, so far, beeu displayed in
the selection of horses for the different companies.
Veterinary Surgeon Henshaw is highly spoken of as
possessing wire judgment and skill in his inspection
of animals offered lor sale to the department.
It is rumored that a novel feature in the steam
arrangement of engines will be shortly tested,
which, it is said, will revolutionize the present sys
tem e*f “ getting up steam.” Coal dealers will, pos
sibly, have to don Fall overcoats during the coming
Sprang.
Apropos of the coming election for district engi
neer, it is asserted that * ■certain gentleman, wear- -
ing a peculiarly-colored overcoat, while at a fire re
cently, offered to bet that he could name the win
ning man. The better must be opposed to Civil
Service rules, else the knowledge, he professes to
possess, if coming from any reliable source, would
indicate that favoritism is sanctioned, to the utter
disregard of true merit. Moro anon.
In accepting the resignation as District Engineer
of Sheriff Farley, Commissionsr Poillon, in a well
chosen reply, paid a just tribute to Mr. Farley’s
past record as a brave and efficient fireman. Both !
the letters were models of brevity, grace and diction ,
and plainly showed the writers to be men accus
tomed to act without any preliminary gush in mat
ters of importance. It is perhaps needless to here
remark that the Department suffers a material loss
through the resignation of Mr. Farley, while tho en
tire force will miss a brave comrade in the hour of I
peril. K
New Year’s day at the Sheriff’s house will long be
remembered. The visit of the Fourteenth was made !
the occasion for the presentation of a set of resolu
tions to the host. The presentation speech was
made by Sergeant John E. Eastman of the visiting
organization.
There are many rumors circulating about tho va
rious houses concerning the probable selection of
members for promotion to the positions of foremen
upon the forinatiou of the new engine companies.
As there aro many deserving members at present
serving with the force, it will be a hard matter to
decide which one of tho many seeking promotion
will pass tho required examination.
District Engineer Dale is receiving the congratu
tions of his many friends and comrades over his
lucky escape from serious injury last week, after
being thrown from his wagon by reason of the horse
he was driving becoming unmanageable. The
worthy engineer seems to bo peculiarly unfortunate
of late, in the matter of accidents.
Still another name is added to the list of possible
candidates for the position of District Engineer,
which election will, it is believed, shortly take
place. Foreman Duff, of Engine Company No. 3, is,
we believe, deservedly mentioned, while his past
record is said to be second to none. No official
order having as yet been received concerning the
probable date for tho election, nothing definite can
in consequence be learned as to how far the contest
may narrow down so as to enable ono to guess with
any degree of certainty, who the lucky candidate
may be.
Matters about the Williamsburg Houses remain
quiet. The erection of a monument to be placed
over the graves ot the two firemen, recently killed
in tho discharge of their duty, while attending a j
fire iu a bakery in that district, will follow the
placing in position of one over the remains of
McDougall, of Truck Company, No. 3.
With their usual generosity the members of the
force have donated liberally toward the fund in aid
of the sufferers from the late St. John’s Orphan
age disaster. The sum of $465 has thus far been
contributed.
Speaking of donations, it may not be generally
known that tho frequency of these charitable calls
is very embarrassing to those receiving the low
salary given a new comer. When it is further taken
into consideration that there are incidental ex
penses to ba met in order to insure comfort in the
bunk room, it is little wonder that married men
complain of inadequate salary when joining the
force.
Foreman McGroarty, of Engine Company No. 14,
has received a very flattering testimonial for his
coolness and bravery at the recent Orphanage Are.
Tho physical examination of candidates for ad
mission to the force has at length been completed.
‘ The Civil Service Board will now examine those suc
cessful in passing the doctor.
Foreman Hagan, of Engine Company No. 7, is laid
up with a cold. Matthews, of Truck Company No.
3, it is expected, will be ready for duty in a few
days.
Proposals for supplying the Department with six
thousand feet of hose, three steam one
hook and ladder truck, a number of fire-alarm
boxes, and the usual supply of coal aud wood, have
been advertised for by the Commissioner.
Engineer Manning has surprised his friends by
his act of marrying his stepmother. The roguish
‘ god Cupid must have been recovering from the
effect of New Year calls when he aimed the shaft in
Manning’s case. The family relations of Manning
are decidedly mixed.
' The Commissioner has prepared a statement of
the number and character of structures partially
5 destroyed by fire during the past year.
> There were twenty-eight trials for violation of
• rules during the past year—a falling off of six from
the number held during the previous year. There
were but five cases lor intoxication during the past
year, which is a very creditable showing indeed. !
T During the past week there were throe eases for
’ trial, all of which were leniently dealt with by the
Commissioner.
The health of the horses in the department is ex
cellent. It is a matter of vital importance in fire
matters that none but first’dass animals be used,
as upon the intelligence an® fleetness of the latter,
.entirely depends the promptitude of the appearance
.of an apparatus at the scene of fire.
