Lock llnvrii, where Congressman A.

pioho to Investigate tho city of Phila
delphia, and then uhtuptly shutting off
tho work of tho Commission when It
soi-med about to exposo the Inner work
ing of tho I'enroso organization.
Mr. Valincr challenged Senator I'cnioio
to toll tho people of Pennsylvania Just
why the Commission had suddenly con
cluded Its work. The election of Hudolph
Hlunketiburg us .Mayor or Philadelphia,
Mr. Palmer attributed directly to the
unexpected revelations inadu to tho peo
ple of that city by tlio Commission be
roro It dropped out or existence.
Tho charge that ho would just as leave

would accomplish the ends or his political
knavery was bulled at Senator I'enroso.
P.orening to the Indictment which ho ban
undo against tho Senator, Mr. Palmer
"As I have lemarked before, Penrose
talks much uboilt whut ho lifts dono for
Pennsylvania, and I tell you that you
should stop and think what ho has dono
tt Pennsylvania. I have not made one
statement about Penrose anywhere which
in not absolutely verified by his record.
Whenever I have cited Instances of hie
votes In tho Senate I have given tho date
and the page or the Congressional Ttccord
on which It may bo found, so that any
ono may turn to that record himself and
rind Penrose's shame."

Hoatd of Trustees of the latter plnce

was piepnrlng to pave a few more streets,
erect a sehoolhouso or two and inlro the
salailcs ot certain oltlclnts when Mr.
Rockefeller's slarf of lawyers swooped
down on Hillside nnd Informed the village

A LEGAL SOLUTION
City Solicitor Advises Com
mission to Withhold New
Appointments Until He
Has Examined Law.
WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 17. Nothing
further will be dono toward iuallfylng
tho policemen who weto appointed on
Tuesday until City Council has consid
ered the subject this evening nnd de
cided what Is to bo dune. Tho point has
been raised that tlio lesoliltlon adopted
by City Council was Illegal, The law
provides that the police fotee shall bo
cnlnrged from time to time upon the
recommendation of Council, but Councils'
resolution authorized tho Police Commis
sion to Increase tho force Instead of
locommendlng It. Tho point was inishod
with such vigor that City Solicitor Daniel
O. Habtlngs advised tlio Police Commis
sion not to proceed fin titer In the miil-
tcr until lie could look Into tho law and
go over tho matter with the Police Com
mission. If Council should decide that the reho
lutlon was Illegally passed nnd lesclnd
It, tho Police Commission probably will
drop the matter and allow tho blame for
fnlluio to Increase tlio police force tu lest
on tho members of Council. Should tho
City Solicitor decide the resolution legal,
the chances nrn that the Police Commis
sion will stand by its appointments.
Tho whole hubject has stirred up bitter
feeling nmog the friends of tho two
Police Commissioners and Chief of Po
lice Ulack on one sldo and tho friends
of tho members of City Council on the
other. Members of Council assert they
nre endeavoring to back Oeneral I. Pusscy
Wiekersham, one of tho mombers of tho
commission, In his cfTorts to Improve the
Police Department, while tho other side
declares that tho Interference of City
Council Is due to n desire on tho part
of some of the membeis to get even with
the Chief nf Police and prevent him hav
ing any choice in tho selection of men
for the moiiiili-il fuiun.il wllieli Is to be
rormed. The assertion Is made that the
Id'-a of lm -ltitr mi expert to examine tlio
police force and suggest ehnnges and Im
provements was to get Chief Ulack out
of olllce, and that aflep John II. Tnylor,
the Philadelphia expert, had declared that
Mack was a good olllcer, but win
hampeied, his opponents piorteded lo
get after him in some other wuj.
