Shameful Developments Before
The DroceediuKS of the Lexow
committee today, wore of the most
sonsational character, says a New
1 York telegram of December U. Cap
tain Creeden, who denied yesterday
that he had paid for his appoint-
merit, took the stand early in the
session and declared that after con
sultation with his family and his
friends he had decided to make a
clean breast of the matter. He then
told in detail the story of how ho
paid 115,000 to be appointed cap
tain. The monoy, ho dnclarod, was
raised at the suggestion of John
Repponhagen, leader of the New
' Democracy, who told him tho posi
tion was at Commissioner Voorhoes'
disposal, and ho (Creeden) could
set it br paring f 12.000. Creeden
said he went to Barnoy Rourke, who
raised a subscription on notes which
tho soon to be captain signed in
blank. After tho 112,000 had been
raised Creeden was told he would
, have to get $3000 more, as $12,000
, had beeu offered by Sergeant Wlog
, and of tho Ninth proelnct. Tho
additional sum was raised and after
' a talk with Commissioner Voorhees,
, during which ho denied all know
ledge of any fund baring been rais
ed, ho roceived his appointment.
j The $15,000 was haudou over to
Roppeuliagon, and a few days aftor
Creeden recotved his apuointmont.
The captain was visibly agitatod
during tho recital of his story, and
declared that for years ho had hoped
to get promotion on his merits, but
he had boon ignored, although ho
hod threo times passed tho civil ser
vice examination with a high per
cenlage. He told of being ap
proached onco and been informed
that ho could hare au nppoiutment
to a captaincy by paying $0000. Ho
refused, but later liad to bow down
to the system, kuowiug it was rotten
aud corrupt, or remain a sorgeaut
all his Hie. Tho courtroom was
crowded to its utmost capacity aud
when Mr. Goff. in concluding the
: examination of Captain Creeden,
' thanked him on behalf of tho com
mitleo and declared that in con
sideration of his record aud sorvice
ho had ruudorod his country, he
would not bo disturbod in his pre
cinct, there was a burst of applauso t Fine
Iroin tuo spectators wnieucouunuou
, for some time.
1 After Johu l. Repponhagen had
been recalled and couGrmed the
story of Capt. Creeden, uows was re
ceived in the court room that the
police commissioners, acting ou the
advice of Supt. liyrues, had suspend
ed Capt. Creodeu from duty. There
was much excitement for a time aud,
after a hasty coufornncu with tho
Sonata committoe. Mr. Ooff au-
uounced that ho had issued sub
' pnnas for the police commissioners
aud Supt. liyrues to explain their
autiou. Tho spectators rose en
, masse at this announcement and
cheered for several miuutes. Later.
Polico Commissioner Martin and
Superintendent Byrnes took tho
, staud. They declared that wheu
they decided to suspend Creeden
' they had uot heard of the commit
' tee a recommendation that hu bo re
tained on tho force. In view ol this
recommendation, they statod that
steps would bo taken to-morrow to
1 rescind their hasty action.
Before hogiuniug tho foimal pro
ceedings to day Mr. OolT said: ,5Wo
have boon extremely careful, goutl
I meu of tho committoe, so far. that
tho process of this committee should
' Iw used only whero it is warranted
aud proper. In view, however, of
1 tho facts brought out in yesterday's
, testimony that a citizen of Brooklyn
paid compulsory money to a geutlo
man in a way that I consider con
structive oxtortiou, it is, I thiuk, a
right uso of the committee's process
j that 1 should oxteud to Mr. Richard
Croker the privileges of the witness
chair, if the gentleman named, Mr.
Croker, has any desire or wish to
, vindicate himself, or explain the re
l ceivintr of monev that was construe
t tive extortiou, wo oxteud to him the
I privileges of our witness stand. Any
i communication from Mr. Croker to
thucouusel for the committee will
receive prompt attention."
There was a deep sicuueo in the
courtroom. "1 uudorstaud," said tho
chairman, "that tho ouly reason why
you didn't subpii'ua Mr. Croker is
that the particular paymeut of this
money may uot be iu the particular
scope of this committee aud objec
tlons might bo made to the service
of the subpii'ua. He might refuse
it. We will supplement your state
ment by saying that if the fixed
dates of our sessions do not suit Mr.
Croker, wu will hold au extraordi
nary session to suit his convenience.
It is fair to add," said Mr. Golf,
"that if he comes hu will be subject
to such further examination, as I
may thiuk fit."
