BUI Loeklaf to the Prgaalaattoa ol thm Kew Torts Dsvrtmont. NEW Yobi, Jan, 15. There is likely to oe some interesting polios legislation at Albany this winter. Two UHs have been prepared which contemplate the most vig orous reorganization of the polios depart ment. One of ths bills will be introduced in the assembly by a Tammany repre sentative frotn New York. Th other bill will be introduced la the senate hv a Piatt Republican. The bills so far as their soopo Is concerned are nearlv Identi cal. They provide for legislating out of office the present board nf oolioe commis sioners and tho appointment of a new board by the governor. The bills sot forth the fact that the polloH force as now constituted is in a state of demoralisation, and is an abso lute menace tu the welfare of the city. Several statesmen in the legislature have bones to pick with Theodore Roosevelt on various subjects and they will help push the bills, as they will have the effect of legislating Mr. Roosevelt out of ofilos End of a Hoasatloaat Caso.
