where there were no eye witnesses to the

fact that a pardon Is to be asked must
be advertised In the newspapers four, con
secutive weeks and the last publication
must be at least twenty days before the
opening of the legislature. The legislature

bill. At the last session of the legislature
they passed resolutions endorsing the bill
but the officers of the association went be
fore the committee and opposed it. This
time the members say the officers will be
prevented from taking this action. They
claim that the officers did not represent
the sentiment of the members of the
association and are now offering to give
the bill support. As the action of the
officers of the grocers association in siding
with the wholesalers was the chief factor
In defeating the bill at the last session

bly to appropriate an Increase of $30,000
a year to the use of the guard. That was
the plan, but It was discovered today that
there Is an army regulation against any
such action and so the conference will be
cut out. It Is proposed, however, to recom
mend to the general assembly, through the
adjutant general's report, that the increase
in the appropriation be made.

SOME DOfTTS FOR POLICEMEN
New York's Commissioner Hands a
Ranch to n Groap of Raw
Police Commissioner McAdoo of New
York, in appointing a number of new police
men the other day, took occasion to add
a few don'ts to the customary advice. A
few samples follow:
Don't be a politician; be a policeman.
I want that drummed right Into you. A
a citizen, you can be a democrat or a
republican or a member of the Moon Own
ers league, or anything else you want, but
aa a policeman be a policeman.
Don't let anybody in New York or out
of it intervene for the shadow of an In
stant between you and what you know to
be your duty. Tho moment a man on the
police force becomes a politician Instead of
being a policeman, he Is worse than use
less. He Is working a pull on the commis
sioner. He won't stand out on his merits,
and he Is always looking to see how the
wind Is blowing; when will they get rid of

Don't get too friendly with criminals;

Don't be too good a fellow. I have had

turned down one or two men. I was sorry

will tell you why I turned them down.
They were too good fellows. They had
never said "no" In thirty-five years of
police life. Any good friends could come
along and tell them what they wanted, and
they would get It. Be a good fellow of

man over there being assaulted, a woman
being Insulted, a cry of "Stop thief!" down
the street; 'don't let me find you saying.
"Oh, that Is none of my business; I am on
the crossing here; that Is the business of
the man on post." Don't have that disposi

policeman all the time.
Don t say, because you are on a post
where there are burglaries, "Well, that is
for the detectives; the detective bureau
has got to do that; that Is none of my
business; I will do the best I ran trying my
doors, and I am not going to play detec

on the police that wsy.
Don't lose enthusiasm. When a police
man gets stale, and no longer takes Inter

of It, he becomes indifferent and laiy. All
he does is simply keep within the "dead

you the public doesn't appreciate good
