HEATED REJOINDERS. Were Made at Aldermanic Inquiry Into Police Conditions in New York New York, Sept. 24. Inquiry by the aldermanic committee into police condi tions was marked yesterday by heated words from the principal witness, James Creelman, president of the municipal civil service commission, upon which Police Commissioner Waldo in earlier testimony had placed responsibility for the fact" that many men alleged to be unfit for duty received appointments to the police force. In the midst of cheers from some of the auditors and hisses from others, the witness denounced the committee's work as "petty political trickery of the Republican ring" and declared that he would leave the wit ness stand unless its counsel, Emery H. Buckner, ceased "putting lies in his mouth." Scenes of confusion and up roar accompanied practically all of the afternoon's proceedings. Testimony elicited from President Oeelman and his two associates, Alex ander Keogh and Richard Welling, had the effect of turning the responsibility back upon Commissioner Waldo. The question has mainly been how it was that some 40 men on the civil service list, who had been rejected by former Police Commissioner .lames O. Cropsey as unfit for duty, had been appointed to the force shortly after Commissioner Waldo took office. Commissioner Wal do has declared the civil service com mission had certified to the fitness of these men even after the commissioner had referred them back to the commis sion for investigation. Mr. Keogh declared yesterday that only a few of these men were actually summoned before the commission for tlie reason, he said, that the rejections were withdrawn by Commissioner Waldo. In the examination of Mr. Creelman, during which Attorney Buckner experi enced many setbacks by the witness's denunciation of the committee's proced ure, the committee's counsel considered one by one the cases of men whom Mr. Waldo appointed although they, had been found to have committed perjury in applying for positions and some to have hail accusations of crime against them on record. Mr. Creelman declared that the district attorney's office had been advised of instances of perjury but the public prosecutor had declined to act. He also declared that Mr Waldo was in possession of the records of the alleged undesirables and that in some instances the names were placet! on the recertified list at the comissioner's re quest and others certified to localise the commissioner considered Mr, Cropsey's obiections baseless. Sweeping Action Likely to Be Made Soon, Thus Removing Fourth-Class Appointees of Uncertainties of Politics. Washington, 1). C, Sept. 24. Tt was practically decided yesterday that Presi dent Taft in the near future will issue an executive order placing all fourth class postmasters in the classified serv ice. This order, relieving 30.038 post mnsters from the uncertainty of politi eal appointment, will be one of the most comprehensive and far-reaching, as af fecting the civil service, ever issued by a president of the United States. That the president . would take this step, his first act toward putting into practice Ins often-expressed neliei tnai all government officers below the grade of cabinet members should be removel from the influence of politics and placed under the civil service, became practi cally certain late yesterday after a del egation of postmasters, returning from the annual convention of the association at Richmond. Va., had been received at the White House and by Postmaster General Hitchcock. The visitors sub mitted a monster petition, asking that they be placed in the classified service. After discussing the matter briefly with the delegation. President Taft re. f erred the executive committee Vf the association to Mr. Hitchcock for further consideration of the matter. Later the committee called upon the postmaster- general to discuss the subject with him. In a few days Mr. Hitchcock will sub mit to President Tnft a formal recom mendation that the petitiou be granted and the president is expected to act promptly and favorably upon the rec ommendation. vTn the entire country there were 40. 072 fourth-class postmasters at the end of the last' fiscal venr. By executive order issued in July, 1008, President Roosevelt placed the fourth-class post masters of all Xew England states and of Xew York, Xew Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio. Indiana. Michigan and Wisconsin. in the civil service, a total of 13.(134. Those still without the service number 3(1.038. While the details of the proposition have not 'been worked out. it is expected that the covering into classified service of this great number of officials will be accomplished by the designation of the postmasters of groups of states succes sively. It will require an immense amount, of labor on the part of the civil service commission, particularly, as well as on the part of the postollicc department. Both the president and Postmaster-General Hitchcock have recommended to Congress that all postmasters be covered into the classified service; and that , far as possible, the entire personnel of the postal service be removed from po litical influence.

WILSON IN PENNSYLVANIA. Made Addresses at Several Places and Was Greeted by Large Crowds. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 24. Through rainy Pennsylvania, Governor Wood row Wil.-on rode yesterday, campaigning as he went and addressing thousands of people, who crowded the wayside sta tions to see him. He arrived here at 0.12 o'clock last night and participated in an umbrella parade to the armory, where a big mass meeting was held as a sequel to the official notification cere monies earlier in the day to the State ticket. F'rom the moment the Democratic candidate crossed the state line at Phil lipsburg, X. J., and Btopped at Kaston, Delaware, Water (Jap, Portland and Stroud sburg, there were umbrella cov ered crowds to greet him. At Strouds burg, the home of Representative A. Mitchell Palmer, national committeeman from Pennsylvania, the biggest crowd turned out. A band played and the gov ernor was given a lively demonstration. It was getting toward dusk when the governor reached Stroudsburg and as he leaned from the rail of the observation platform, the brakeman removed a rear light. "They know we don't need any arti ficial light," said the candidate amid laughter, "and that there is no danger on the part of the Democratic candidate of a rear-end collision, because nobody is in the same running class with it so that we are not afraid of any other train catching up with us. "The interesting thing to thp Mhole country, is that the great state of Penn sylvania, that has so long seemed en tirely devoted to the interests of one party and suspicious of the Democrjic party, as if the Democrats didn't un derstand the financial and business in terests of the country, is now showing a nni iked inclination to turn away from the party which has not satisfied the people, and entrust its confidence to the party which is now seeking a new set of policies, in order that the country as a whole may be served. The Republi cans aren't even satisfying themselves. 1 don't like to talk about it because I belong to another family and it seems to me indelicate to talk about the affairs of a family I don't belong to. "But evidently there is some family trouble, and some, part of the family has a more tender conscience than the other, and the part that has a tender conscience doesn't exactly know what it wants to do with it. But those of us who for 10 years saw exactly what was coming in the year 1012 have no doubt where we are bound for. I want to call you to witness that the Democratic party has had substantially its present program of returning the government to the people for more than lfi years. We arnn't doing anything new in the year 1012. What has ha'ppened is that the people were beginning to see that after all we are willing to stay out of power on the conviction that the day was coming when, upon our platform, we could serve the interests of the people of the United States. "One"" of the papers in Philadelphia said very wittily the other day that if the Democrats committed economic mur der on the industries of the country they would also commit economic suicide." order to ascertain thelwith. jimmy." He told the people in peaKcr inamp v latus Home state that Mr. Clark had licen lieaten in the Demo cratic convention, although he had beat en Governor Wilson in the primaries. In the crowd at Lamar there was a man with a huge banner bearing the words "We want Taft, let well enough alone," The banner attracted Colonel Roose velt's attention. Bending over the rail ing of his car, he pointed to the man with the banner and said: "Any man who support the receiver of stolen goods stands on a level with the receiver of the stolen goods. He is a dishonest man,' and is unfit to asso ciate with honest men." As the train drew out Colonel Roose velt callei to the crowd: "Goodbye, honest men." When the colonel reached Springfield he found another Taft banner and saw a number of men who were wearing Taft nadges. "I have noticed several Taft badges in your town,"' he said in his speech, "anil they are the appropriate color of yellow. There, never was a yellower performance than that of the Republi can managers at the Chicago convention and the badge are just the right color. The man who put one on shows that he has a yellow streak somewhere." The colonel attacked the Republican national committee in bis speech at Joplin, 'The Republican national committee," he said, " is composed of A3 men, most of them shady." 'All of tltem,' a man in the crowd shouted. "Well pretty nearly," the colonel said. "There were just ahvut enough of the other kind to have saved Sodom and Gomorrah." Colonel Roosevelt left for Oklahoma last night. Declares He Will Be Named as Demo cratic Candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in To-day's Primaries. Boston, Sept. 24.
