collector of customs nt Port Townshcnd,

Treasury Department for action In tho

INADEQl'ACV Of Til U I.iqCOlt LAW.
Iii discussing tho liicrcao of crlmo ho
hijs it largely to tho sale of rum nud says:
"Thu offenses committed by persons under
tbo Influence of liquor aro on tho Increase,
habitual diuiikcnuess Increasing from Olo
88 cases. Assaults on ofllccrs havo de
creased fi om (10 to 43, this being principally
duo to tbo execution of Langstcr. While
tho number of places where liquor Is sold
Increases, thu resulting disorder increases."
Ho complains of tho Inadequacy of tho
liquor laws nud makes some sugeustlons
in tho matter. Hu says: "Tho uxlstlug
laws i elating to tlio liquor tralllc aro very
unsatisfactory. Prohibition, were It de
sirable, Is Impraetlcablu here. Hut n step
in that direction," ho says, "may bo mado
and lids' is far preferable to n step In thu
opposite, direction. Ktich policeman on
duty now has on an nvcrago fifteen or
eighteen places where liquor Is sold to look
after with no satisfactory law to aid him.
Thu low groL'gcrles where, and In couso
quencu of which, much disorder occurs may
be biokeu up by high license. Thu saloon
which pa) s only $25 license is obliged under
thu law to dispose ot several drinks nt one
salo n pint at n tlnio while tho dealer who
hns n $100 llccnso may sell only oiiodiluk.
It must bo understood that tho 'stovepipe'
sells nt low places nt tho same prieu that a
small glass does at ti retail place. Doth
sell lu such a manner as to produce drunk
enness aud disorder, nnd there is no rnamn
why they should not pay thu sumo license,
unless it bu desirable to iiiaku n distinction
In favor of places where only boer Is sold.
A two hundred nnd llfty or it higher license
would get rid of many of tho lower places,
and thu icuuilnlng places could bo kept
under more strict pollco surveillance.
"Legislation In this matter should bo di
rected principally ngalnst liquor as a
luxury and against Its abtisu and adultera
tion, While thu consumer Indirectly pays
thu tax and ileenso, thu producer and seller
ulono havo any criminal rospouslblllty in

1C41 Sixth street northwest, utter which
tliey piocecdcd to tliu statlou-houso where
tlio inquest was held.
Itobett Nelson, colored, residing on
Giant avenue, between Klghth and N'lutli
streets nortiiwcsi, was iiiu nrst witness
called. Ho tcstitlcd that while at work near
tho 11 street crossing shortly nfter 8 o'clock
Monday morning ills attention was called
tuwiuds tho crossing by tho noise ot thu
nppioachlng truln. Tlio old lady was lu
tbo middle of 11 street at this time uud
seemed unconscious ot her danger. Tho
gate tender had hold tho cranks that oper
ate tho automatic gates aud made no effort
to wnru her oil. She was struck by the
cylinder of tho cngliio aud thrown a dis
tance of about twenty feet on uu adjoining
truck. Tho train stopped and backed to
tlio crossing after the lady had been carried
into n restaurant eloso by.
Michael Hill, living ntXo. 133 O streot
northeast, witnessed tho accident, llo said
tho watchman lowered the gates before tho
unlvalof tho train at tbo crossing, but as
no mm la attached to tho gates to protect
tbo sidewalk, the old lady walked from the
sidewalk on (hu track and unconsciously
walked hi front of tho train, which was go
ing til tlio usual rate. Tho gato was tho
first one coustiuctcd by tho company, and
only pioteets tho street crossing from
uhlcles. Tlio other gates used by tho com
pany huvo combination arms that protect
both the street and sidewalk. Tho watch
man called to somebody to look out, but ho
could not say to whom.
Samuel K. l.nbuirer, tho fireman of tho
engine, testified that his attention was first
atti acted to tho occurrence when tho train
was reuniting the curvo near tho crossing.
When ho llrst saw thu lady sho was lu tho
middle ot tho street nnd wnlklng slowly
tow mil tlio opposite side. Ho puilod the
bell nud hallooed to her, but sho seemed
not to heed (lie warning, llcforo thu train
could bu stopped she was struck by tho
bumper of the engine and knocked about
twenty feet. When tho tralu caiuu to u
halt tho conductor, with other assistance,
cnrilcd her to n snloon eloso by.
Michael Sullivan, tho gato-kcepcr, tcsti
tlcd that ho lowered tho gates when ho re
ceived the i-lgnal from the gates above. Ilu
looked on tho sidewalks to seo If any ono
was approaililng, and warned back four
ehlldri n who were about locross tho tracks.
He nlso shouted to a man who was walking
on Iho track further down. Tlio balance of
Ids testimony was substantially tliu same as
mentioned lu Tin: dime on the day of thu
liufus II. (losnell, cuslueor, testified that
ho did not sec the deceased until hu hacked
tho train and saw tho conductor taking her
iiwuv. His attention was first called to tho
accident by tho fireman ringing tho boll
uud hollooliig. Tho train was going nt the
ralu of nbout eight miles an hour.
This closluL' tho testimony, tlio caso was
given to tbo Jury.
The veidlct was to tho oITect that de
ceased ciinio to her death from liijuiles re

Jury tii) s that while they ocllovu there was

Duiiiig Uiu past Unco month con
Blilernblo complaint 1ms been made to
.Special Olllccr McKay of tlio Centru
.Market by tlio stall-keepers In tlio
market of small ninounts of spurious
coin being passed on them by unknown
parties. Though tho sagacity of the special
olllccr wns put to Its fullest test for somu
time, he was not only unable to apprehend
the parties but fallcl to obtain tho slightest
clew to tin in.
Alsnit threo Weeks ago tlin passing of n
spurious tweiity-llvu-ccnt pleco was trucc4
to Vlnccnzo Arrlgo, a young Italian fruit
vender at Hie market. Instead of facing
Arrlgo with thu coin Olllccr .McKay reported
tho fact to Lieutenant Arnold of tlio Fifth
Precinct Pollco Station. Detective Mat
tliurly wns also called upon to assist In
working up lli case, and tho thrco olllccrs
for tho past three weeks havo given tho
mutter especial attention.
A strict wnlcli was kept on Arrlgo ut tho
iiuukct, which resulted lu the ofllcor com
ing to tho conclusion that thu town was Im
mg operated by a gang of counterfeiters,
whoso methods of circulating the spurious
coin wero such that It not Immediately
stopped would fill tho town with counter
feit half-dollars nnd quarters. Tho cluo
being traced to tho Italian, Vlucouzo Ar
rlgo, nn olllccr from tliu Secret Sorvlco was

It was discovered that every market day
Airlgo would meet a number of his rnco at.
thu Centre Market. They tilwovs scorned
Hush. 'I hey were traced to a bartihouso on
tlio Marlboro' road, near Forestvlllc, Mil.
At a consultation between Chief Hrooks ot
the secret service and Lieutenant Arnold
yesterday It was nrrangod that n squad of
policemen should bu at tho market early
this morning to arrest the countrymen on
At 0.30 o'clock this morning, as tho tho
wngon containing four Itullans", two women
nnd two men, bucked up nt thu curbing on

ters was found on the two men. Vlnccnzo
Aitfgo, tho fiult lender, was shortly
brought in by an olllccr, nud a small amount,
of spurious coin was found In his pocket.
They were all remanded ton cell, charged
with passing countci felt coin. A detail ot
ofllccrs fioni tho station and secret sprvlcu
wns sent to tho Arrlgo bouse In the country
to search for thu dies uud plalos used by
the couiilei fellers. The farm on which they
reside belongs to Mr. II. C. Ptilllpps, thu
burlier on Pennslvuula avenue, near II lit
Tho ofllccrs returned nt 3 o'clock from
tbo counterfeiters' home, nnd reported thai
no paraphernalia for counterfeiting or any
spurious coin was fouuil.
", Some letters found nt tho house show that
the coin came from Cincinnati.
Mr. Philips stated to a reporter ot Tub
Cuitic this morning that Ills farm had been
worked on shares by Sulvatoro Arrlgo ami
bis family for about tlireo years. Whey
they first canto to tbo city thny representor
to hate arrived Just from Sicily.
At 11 o'clock tho ofllccrs of tho Fifth

connected with tbo gaug.
The prisoners had nbeartng before United
States Commissioner Samuel C. Mills at

to await tho action ot the grand Jury.
WHAT CllIEE IlItOOKS SVTS.
Chief Hrooks of the Secret Service said
this itlternooii that tho information re
ceived at his ofllco Indicated that a largo
gang, nlmostexcluslvcly Italians, havo been
passing counterfeit quarters und halves in
tills city and vicinity for weeks. Tho coins,
he says, are fairly good In tippoaranco, and
have an excellent ring, but are too light In
color and In weight. Tho quarters detected
have borno the dates "1S70" or "1877 "
.More than two weeks ago complaint
reached the Secret Scrvlco of the operations
of Italian fruit venders in this city in pass
ing counterfeit minor coin, and koun de
tectives were nt once put to work.
Lleulcnnut Arnold some days later re
ported some Important developments In
tho matter and the secret service men nud
Lieutenant Arnold havo slnco co-operated
lu working up thu ease. Tho developments
Indicated to I hief Hrooks' satisfaction that
the clieulatloti ot thosu kiso coins hero has
already become very largo aud Increasing
"If wo could have delajedn fow day
longer wo would havo got n much larger
gang nnd had tho easo more perfectly dc
vchiped, but tho counterfeits had becomo
so numerous and tlio operations so notori
ous In tho murkcts and among tho mer
chants that tile gang was gutting frightened
and would soon havo disappeared. As It
Is, wo probably got less than half tho pen
plo Implicated, nud tbo others will 'skip
town' If not arrested to-day.
"As far as wo know tho offenders are all
Italians, although some suspicion uttuches to
oue or two colored persons. We are at a
loss to know where tho coin com.'s from.
Wo huvo sent men down to tho farm at
Forrestvlllo to find whether it was madu
there. It Is not probable that It was ntadii
Itl Washington, but may have boon shipped
here. Wo will soon find out. Tho expo
sure to-day will lead people to examine
their small coin and we wlilllnd out how
extensive this has been."
