Islam! "(jot to" Senator McCarren. who
was aide to iiitlueiice Mayor MH'ellan
to remove the police commissioner as
a scapegoat who hail acted in pursu
ance of plans made ly the mayor.
In niaklnu' these plans, the former
commissioner asserts, the purpose of
the mayor was to capture the Tam
many i ruMiiizatlon for himself, not
withstanding his assurances that he
luii! determined to ret I le from politics
al the end of Ids term.
(ieiieral lilncham charges that the
mayor cherished an ainliltioiis desiirii
to become the Xew York boss and that
in carrylm; out the des;'ii he stuiuht
to have the commissioner so run the
police department as to favor political
leaders who wished 'to protect unlaw
ful interests.
Taking up I lie recount case. General
Iiif,'hain criticises the attitude of the
mayor In that licht, addinir:
"The mayor's political instincts and
training made the plaudits of the
crowd most pleasant. To llntl himself
deserted suddenly was a shock to the
man who had more than his share of
vanity. McClellati shut himself up like
n cave man and refused to attend pub
lic functions where his olliclal pres
ence was desired.
"He could not be made to see that he
must pay the penalty of his own lack
of nerve in weleoinliit; a recount when
such proceedings became Inevitable.
"This light on McClellau's character
was u surprise to inc. Above all, 1
urged IiimVto show the people that he
was not afraid to lose his Job. That
lie did not have the nerve to do this
constantly was due to the fact that on
one or two of the liifroipient occasions
in which he did appear in public his
greeting by applause was well salted
with jeers and hisses."
The former commissioner says that
when he became police commissioner
it was with the promise of McClellan
that he would not be hampered by
"I was given lo understand that he
had made up his mind to quit politics.
AVhen his term of olllco expired he
would enter some other business," he
nays, but he soon learned that instead
of seeking to get out of politics the
mayor "did not possess strength of
character enough to keep his promise
and keep politics out of my end of Ids
administration. He became seized with
the great idea that in the four years
of otllco then liefore him he could ob
tain t lie control of Tammany Hall.
The light was to begin at once. Im
mediately contests to displace tdd dis
trict lenders were instituted in many
assembly districts."
The general indicates that the fight
began to fall because of his refusal to
lend the police department to the
schemes of the city hall.
"So bnd did his political scheme bo
come," he says, "In some of the dis
tricts of Manhattan nfter Mayor Mc
Clellan began his contests at the pri
maries for the leadership of Tammany

the license bureau found to be doing
a land office business In graft, but It
often trebled the cost of show li
censes." Ho charges that McClellan in a
"spasm of wrath" ordered all moving
picture shows be closed on Sunday
notwithstanding that he had issued
seven day licenses to them and could
not legally make the order, which the
courts estopped by injunction.
General lilngham charges that Mc
Clellan said to him in response to n
question as to the meaning of this

Flight to North Pole.
Ilanunerfest, Xorway, Aug. 18. A
illspatch received from Walter Well
man's arctic expedition camp at Spits
bergen says:
"The north gale which had been
blowing for eight days dropped on the
l'Jth. and Mr. Welliiian made every
thing ready to start in search of the
north pole. The balloon was lnllated
i broad valley. The main body of the
I red army advanced toward this pusl-
tlon. The blues opened lire upon the
Invaders and brought their two amo
guns to boar upon the advancing col
umn. Preceding the general engagement
there was a rcdliot skirmish on Mld
dleboro green, In which the outposts
on the left wing of the blue nrmy of
defense were attacked and driven back
by a flying squadron of cavalry. The
engagement lasted for an hour and
was finally called off by the umpires,
who decided that the reds had driven
back tile hljios. liefore hostilities could
bo renewed the blue outposts at the
command of the umpires were forced
to retire half a mile to the north and
take up a new position.
The battle was fought on the green,

Buying Tablecloths.
ISefore buying tablecloths know ex
actly the width and length tif the din
ing table.
S-ollaiid furnishes most of the un
bleached medium priced linen. It
wears well, and many people purchase
It and bleach ll on the grass, as It Is
uu derate In price.
Gorman linen has a hard twisted
thread. This makes It look rather
coarse, but for common purposes It ,
tloes well. A good rule In buying linen
Is to go by the firmness 'of the weave
rather, than by the weight or the pat
tern. The snowdrop nud the check will be
found the most satisfactory for pat
terns. Largo designs require a longer
thread, which wear out sooner than
the smnller patterns.
A good damask should bo of fair
weight, not too fine, not too stiff, but
with a soft, pliable appearance.
It has been calculated that a table
two yards square will scat four per
sons and thnt every additional person
will take half n yard of spneo or one
more table leaf.
