Tho long-looked-for long-looked-for long-looked-for long-looked-for long-looked-for general order from Chief of Police McClaughry will not be issued until Monday. Major Mo -langhry -langhry has been very careful, and his speed has been of the alow but sure order. One point has been definitely decided upon Captain Horace Elliott will be made chief of deteotives, retaining his rank. While the efforts made to induce the chief to consider the claims of f Barney Baor for this particular post have proven futile. Bear, nevertheless, will be taken care of. The Chief thinks well of Baer, but leans to Elliott for the ehleftancy because of the latter'a seniority in the secret set vioo. And this alone accounts for Elliott's selection. Lieutenant Field, now under Captain Jenkins Jenkins at the Stock Yards, wilt be promoted to a captaincy, ami assignod to the precinct now presided over by Captain Jenkins. The latter will be transf errod to South Chicago. Captain Martin Hayes goes. "Offensive and brutal partisanship, and ownorship of a liquor saloon, contrary to roles," are the causes set opposite his name on the roster of the new police era. A n?ht is being made for the retention in office of Captain "Billy" Ward. Whether the effort will attain its object remains to be seen. As a counter-irritant counter-irritant counter-irritant in the ease of Ward hia record during his reign at the Desplsines Street 1 being submitted to the Chief. Charlea E. Aldrich, than whom no more efficient efficient and trustworthy office ' ever drew a salary salary from the city, baa not been ahelved by any mesne. The only opposition to Aldrich manifested thus far consists of the insipid vaporings of a mugwump daily newspaper. Aldrich, however, has not as yet been booked. Captain Ed Laughlin, of the Armory, remains. remains. The Chief has not nor does he intend to inquire into Laughlin's politics. He is satisfied of his sterling work as a dauntless and intrepid thief-taker thief-taker thief-taker and hs will remain. While Captain Koch has done nothing brilliant, the Chief is satisfied that Kooh wiU do and no change will be made in the East Chicago district. taptain Hchuetuer. of .Lake view. too. re mains, and will be left in enarge of the pre cinct be now commands. The position of Assistant Superintendent of Police. now held by Brennan, will be abolished. Tbe work of the office, which is worth 93,000 a year to its present incumbent, and is purely of a olerioal order, win oe asaignea to two cierka. urennan. however, is not to be dealt harshly with, and for the present at least will be retained where he is. and when the rush incidental to the present perturbation has abated somewhat, will be put to work at aomething else. Joe Kipler. the captain of the West Chios ro district, has impressed the powers well and he, too, will continue in the service. An effort is afloat and a deal of moral suasion is being osed on behalf of Lieutenant Madden, a brother of the Fourth Ward Alderman. He seeks a captaincy, and hia supporters are hopeful. Utue or no attention has been paid the lleutenantciee, but it appears certain that Lieutenants Stanton and Bowler are to be relieved from duty. Their records are responsible responsible for this. Colonel 1 homes L. Hartican was sworn in yesterday as drill-master drill-master drill-master with the rank of captain. He will conduct his first drill at the Second Begiment Armory Monday. 'ine published statement that Sera-eant Sera-eant Sera-eant Nicholas Shannon, ' who for years has had charge of the construction department, department, has been discharged from tbe force was denied last nisrbt by the Chief, who said it was a mistake growing growing out of the fact that Shannon had been relieved of that particular duty. He retained his rank and wonld be assigned to other work Dy Captain r ltrpaUlck. M. tu. Dickson, an old newspaper man. has been appointed to a clerkship in the office of the Secretary of Police. CMef HLoLlBURhry was at bis offioe for a few minutes late in the afternoon, but waa plainly indisposed and did not remain long, out long enough, however, to aim an order for the diacbarge of Edward Campion, the Hyde Park substitute patrolman who got uruaa ou ms pay xnursuay.
