Radical Policies
XEW YORK, Sept- 16.— County poli
ticians from all-parts of -New-York
state gathered today at < Theodore
Roosevelt's editorial, offices to tell him
where they stand in the fight now /on
.within the . republican . party.-\The~cbl
onel talked • from ". morning \ till | night
with leaders on botfi' sides, but. as= he
was leaving at the end of the dayithe
only statement he would make was. that
he had not a word to say.
There was a sharp exchange today
between Coloner Theodore /Roosevelt
and.' William. Barnes", Jr., -republican
state coramitteeman and leader' of," the
so called "old guard." In apublished
statement Barnes said:" \u25a0 • - ,/•".,
No amount of political' rnaneu- .
vering. use of patronage or person
' al abuse can in . the slightest -de- !
gree ' obscure the one issue, j which
must be fought out to a finish at
Saratoga. There will' be determined '
the future of the republican party '.'
in the state of New York' for some '
years to come; That party: must,
determine In its present form
whether it. will be recognized as the
conserving force' •which has-been 1 —
its history, or whether it will; fol- ;
low the radical policies- of Mr. .
Roosevelt and lose the strategic po-
sition which > It has held in the'
state of New York for many years
as the party of sanity and the pro- -,
lector of industry, on which the.
world of business : and labor must .
. depend.
When Barnes" statement was shown
to Colonel Roosevelt the latter dictated
the following comment: ; :
*> I am indeed blessed 'ln my . ene- '
mies. I am very genuinelj', grate
ful to Mr. Barnes for havins un- .
consciously made the issue so clear *\u25a0
' between what;he is pleased to cail '
Rooseveltism on, tha one side, -and
on the other side. the alliance of the '
boss with that element of .big busi
ness which seeks to control politics
in connection with business.

Big Police Shakeup, It Is Said,
Will Follow Passing
of Martin
"Voluntary Release" in Mayor's
Hands and Will Be Ac
cepted Very Soon
THE resignation of Cljief of Police
John B. Martin has been placed
in the hands of Mayor McCarthy.
Its acceptance is a matter of only a
few days. With Martin may also be
retired a brace of central station ser
geants. Sergeant Freher is mentioned
as a candidate for this distinction.
The new order of things is said to
contemplate the elevation of Sergeant
J. J. O'Meara to the chief tancy. Cap
tain Eugene Wall and Detective Ed
GiDson have figured In the reckonings,
but the real tip is out on O'Meara. The
program provides' for the temporary
appointment of .Captain Wall and the
subsequent selection, of O'Meara.
From lofty officialdom the word has
gone forth that the city is on the brink -
of an up ta date, automatic, air suc-
tion police house cleaning. The
mayor, the district attorney and the
grand jury are said to be working
toward one purpose— a renovation
from subcellar to the apex of the
Saved Pension , - - -~» -.-..,
'This view is not shared by the
friends and associates of Chief Mar
tin. . They declare, that he decided
up»n his resignation as the only means
of saving something out of the wreck.
He will get his pension at least.
There was a temporary hitch in the
order of business yesterday when the
police commissioners failed to:attend
the special session they had called to
consider the mayor's letter criticising
the conduct of the department. They
got together informally, however, and
rehearsed for the big? event later in
the. month.
There was something of a kink any-" -
way in the* calling of the special ses
sion: '--\u25a0' After adjournment Thursday
Commissioner Henderson announced to
the expectant newspapermen that the
board would meet Friday at 1 o'clock in
extraordinary session.
"Why, I haven't heard anything: about
that." chipped In Commissione* Splro.
who "had been with Henderson all the
time. . v' %
""Well. I meant to>' tell yon," replied
. "Oh." said Spiro.
I Spiro is rated as Martin's . friend on
the board. Spiro showed for yester
day's meeting, but the others didn't.
Not Gambling on Future
The futility of resistance on the part
of Chief Martin was urged upon him by
his friends. They told him he hadn't a
chance on earth and Martin was not in
clined to chance the jo bin the here
after. So his resignation rests with tho

Fickert. Mayor McCarthy believes that
the chief has not been doing his duty
by v the residents and tax payers of
the city and county of * San Francisco*
The heavy hand of the administra
tion. It is said, will extend to Sergeant
Philip Archer and Patrolman Percy
Smith. It was through them that the
word was cummunicated " to the caf a
owners, that the' festivities might be
extended. until S o'clock in the morning. .
Sergeant Herllhy, It is stated, may also -
be among the elect.
* The ' whole problem } is to be srround
in the police commission mill within a
few days. It. is believed that an in
vestigation will be : instituted to sup
