The oft repeated rumor of changes in the. police department is, again in circu lation, and that. the police commission ers are to "make the changes. Presi dent O'Conriell and Commissioners Spiro and \u25a0 Henderson "all ' denied yesterday that any, such ! action had ever been discussed by* them individually, or col lectively. . r"THe chief," said President O'Connell, "told us at a meeting recently that he contemplated making some diaries for tlie betterment of the department, and we told him togo ahead* as suqh action was entirely in his hands." , Chief Martin has been oontemplating changing, the captains of the districts, but says that . he has not yet 'decided upon what such changes will be.-,- . t "All. this talk about. the ax," said the chief, "is nonsense. Since I became chief of police I "have always made changes whenever I considered they were 'for the good of the department, and there is nothing new. in the. fact that some changes. are to be made." It has been known for some time that Captain O'Day has been desirousof be ing changed from the command of the central district, and that is one of the .changes contemplated. There Is a well defined rumor that all of the' men doing detective duty 'who owed- their appointment to the former president of the board, Harry -P. Flan nery, will be relegated to street duty, and more capable men appointed.in their place. Among them are said to.be Detectives Farrell, Nelson, Cavanaugh, J. H. Sullivan and Behan. The object of making these changes i'is to see that bunko men and pick pockets'are driven out of the city and crime minimized : as miiclvas possible. BIG OIL SUIT IS GIVEN SETBACK Court Upholds Demurrer to the | Complaint in Blood=JVlcLeod > Litigation $500,000 Western' Company 1 Property in Coalinga District Involved in Legal Battle \u2666 The suit of H.H.' Blood against J. M. »McLeod, a big oil operator of. Los Angeles, and others, 'involving posses sion of the. property of the Western crude oil company in the Coalinga dis trict, worth in the -neighborhood'; of $500,000, was given a setback yester day, Judga " Sea'well sustaining a de murrer to the amended , complaint. The court allowed Carroll : Cook - - arid Lloyd Ackerman, attorney's for Blood. 10 days to prepare! another complaint, but A. L. Weil, attorney for the de fendants, believes the • decision ren dered yesterday virtually' ends .the case in favor of his clients. - Blood in his complaint charged fraud and conspiracy on the part of McLeod and two British Columbia capi talists,. Frank' B. Springer and Hugh Springer, to cheat, him out of \u25a0 his rights as owner of an option overthe oil 'property. ;That option' was given him by- McLeod January 21, 1910, and provided .that ' he should pay $400,000 in installments within a given term. Blood~ paid $26,000 in;, all and ', then participated in the organization of the Canadian California oil company. ,to which *he conveyed -his rights under a deed in escrow to the Western, prop erty. The Springers were directors of the Canadian California oil company. " A -payment of $73,000 to McLeod became due July* 10,! and Frank Springer' came to San Francisco from Vancouver, assuring Blood, tne latter says, that, he had with him' s73,ooo in gold.with which to make the payment. Instead: of doing so,- it is charged in the complaint, he and his ' brother, Hugh Springer, deliberately schemed with. McLeod to cheat .Blood, of. his rights- by neglecting to pay the amount due. y' ';\u25a0\u25a0• Blood 'wanted the court to' set aside the forfeiture and . restore to him his rights under the option and deed . in escrow. In sustaining the demurrer Judge Seawell said it did not appear from , the complaint j wherein McLeod had anything to do with the transac tion carried on between .Blood and Springer and also that there was a misjoinder df parties.
