I TAPPEN'S TICKETS.
I WeRtcheator County Democrats
B Say He Favors Republicans.
I They Allege that Senator Robertson
B Names the Men who Get Work.
Accuse the Park Board President
of Being In a Deal.
M An entirely new feature of the trouble
over the distribution of labor tickets by
I the Park Department came to light
I to-day through the City Hall politicians.
I The Westchester County Democrats are
I after President Tappen with a sharp
I stick because he has given all the tickets
I for work on the Improvement) In city
I parks which are located In Westchester
Countv, and over which the Park De
partment has Jurisdiction, to Republi
can laborers. Ignoring the rmocrats
Mr. Tappan Is between two fires now.
In New York he Is abused because
only Tammany heelers are given em
ployment, and in ..Westchester County
he la condemned because he favors Re
publicans only. The Westchester County
Democrats are closely allied to Tam
many. One of the Congressional and one
of the Senatorial Districts Is composed
partly of Westchester County and part
ly the Annexed District, and the city's
patronage on the aqueduct In West
chester County Is usually divided he
's tween Tammany and their Westchester J
I The Westchester Democrats expected
I similar recognition In the matter of
I park Improvements, particularly from
I Mr. Tappen, who was formerly a resl-
dent and Supreme Court Justice In West- j
H The politicians explain Mr. Tappen's
action by saying that there ta a deal be- j
I tween him and Republican Senator Rob-
m ertson, of Westchester. Robertson has
B Introduced In tbe Legislature a bill to
I abolish the present Park Commleslon
I and substitute a one-beaded Commls-
I slon for It, and emphasis Is laid on the
faot that the bill has not been pushed
by Robertson since he was made the
1 distributing agent of labor tickets for
' Westchester County. There sre over
j one hundred laborers employed In An-
1 nexed District parks, which includes the
1 pans over the county line.
I The politician; call Senator Robert-
J sons bill a "strike" for the purpose of
I capturing patronage, and they are all
I the more bitter against Judge Tappen
I because, as they declare, he Is using the
9J Department patronage to keep himself
I In power.
R Judge Tappen was not In his office
I whe:: an ''Evening World" reporter
I calleil. Secretary Burns said:
H "Judge Tappen has had exclusive
M charge of labor tickets for Westchester.
1 know nothing about a deal. I know,
Sj however, that Senator Robertson and
I other Republicans up there got some'
I tickets. Churches and charitable socle-
ties also were given some."
What is regarded as another "strike"
'for patronage is a bill Introduced in
SAthe Assembly at Albany by Assembly-
Uiuin RobertBon, Republican, of this city.
BKli wants to abolish the Department of
Htreet Improvements in the Annexed
Sj'Isti'Ict, which Is now under Tammany
SFontrol, and have Its work done by the
JSHepartmcnt of Public Works. The peo-
-Sjrple In the Annexed District demanded
(Sj the creation of the Street Improvement
I Deportment and while they are not al-
I together satisfied with Its management
I binder Tammany, they do not want to
I do away with It. Place-hunting palltl-
I elans are said to be back of the scheme.

ll.ii a i .in,.,. Will Endeavor to
Induce lllm to Act.
The question of who shall act as
counsel In the Investigation of New

Lexow's Committee Is one that Is con

men, who desire to see the Investigation
proceed In a thoroughly business-like
As matters stand now, Attorney John
W. Qoff has withdrawn from active par
ticipation In the In.estlgatlon. His
course Is the climax of his discontent,
apparently, at the position which Law
yer William Sutherland has achieved
as leading barrister for the Lexow Com
mittee. Attorney Ooff declares that a
communication, which he forwarded to
Senator Lexow on Friday last, embody
ing conditions under which he would
conduct the legal side of the Investiga
tion, still remains unanswered. This
and the fact that the Lexow Com
mittee on Friday last retained Henry '
Qrasse, of 167 Broadway, to assist Mr.
Sutherland, convince Mr. Ooff that the I
Senators have virtually declined to at- ,
cede to his proposition. The result of
the latter action was a conference yes
terday between President Smith, of the
Chamber of Commerce; C. N. Bliss, the
Rev. C. H. Parkhurst and Qustav
Schwab. The conferrees wanted some
sort of an arrangement made whereby
Mr. Qoff might figure In the Invest!

ow, at his office, 19 Liberty street, anent
a conference in Albany this week to I

Cltlet on the Police bill. Senator Lexow !
suggested Thursday next as the
best date to be selected, and President ,
8mlth and his associate committeemen
will go to Albany Wednesday night.
In Albany last night Attorney Buther

Committee was preparing an answer to

NO PISTOLS IN COORT
So Breckinridge's Lawyers Assure
It Was Reported the Colonel's

No Judicial Action Taken on Yct
(By Assisted Pr.it
WASHINGTON, March 13. Such a
gathering of lawyers as filled the Circuit
Court room, where the Pullard-Breckin-rldge
case Is on trial, this morning has
seldom been seen in Washington. Mem
bers of the local liar crowded the place
to see what sentence Judge Hradley
would mete out to the visiting Kentuckl
j ans who had made a pugilistic assault
I upon Miss Pollard's attorneys the night
Within the recollection of the court
I officials there had been no Instance of a
I resort to fisticuffs by practitioners before
j the local Bar, and the sentiment of law
yers was for a strong punishment of
their brethren who had so disturbed the
I dignity of the Court.
Col. Breckinridge, smiling as usual, was
shaking hands with his cousin, Oen.
Joseph Breckinridge, when Judge Brad-
, ley took his seat on the bench. There
was a moment of very impressive silence
. following the roll call of Jurors, the
I Judge seaming to wait for explanations
i from the lawyers. Then he Bald; "1 no-
, the the papers have laid out a course of
procedure for me to follow regarding an
-v.currence just outside the court-room
after the Court had adjourned yesterday
evening, which the Court did not see,
and which the parties concerned In It
proDably regret as much as the Court
"It Is not a matter of which the Court
can take judicial notice. As It was
past the hour of adjournment when the
fdalnttff' s counsel had finished speaking
ast night, and as I noticed some evi
dences of excitement on the part of the
defendant's counsel, I thought It best to '
adjourn the Court, thinking thnt attet'
a night of thought over the connection
In which certain words had been used,
the counsel might look upon them dif
ferently. Had the trouble referred to
taken place In court It would have been
the duty of the Court to take 1udtcl.il
notice of tt and he would have done so
There was a pause and a rustle of
surprise, after which Judge Bradley
"ihere is another matter about which
I deem It my duty to speak. The Court
has received information that some of
the gentlemen representing the defend
ant have come into the court-room
armed. There Is a law for the punish
ment of the offense of carrying con
cealed weapons, not as stringent as I
wish It was. This is a law-abiding
community, the courts are adequate to
protect citizens, and as such conduct
Is uncalled for, it Is most reprehensl
! ble. if the Court has Information ade
quate, he will see that prosecution Is
begun In the polico court of the dls
1 Here M Butterworth rose, stating
that he had never carried a weapon, and
thought the counsel should be given an
oportunlty to enter disclaimers, as he
I would regret the occurrence of such a
breach of order as much aa the Court.
One by one the lawyers for Col. Breck
inridge declaring thnt they had not car
ried weapons, Mr. Shelby beginning with
the statement that he had never carried
a weapon In his life, Mr. McKenney fol
lowing with a similar statement. Mr.
Stoll declared that he had'never entered
I the presence of a court armed, and then
Mr. Thompson remarked: "Ah I am the
only one left I will enter a disclaimer
Mr. Carlisle rose to say that he wished
it understood that the Information had
not come from any of the plaintiff's
counsel, to which Judge Bradley as-
sented, but remarked that It had been
given him by reputable parties.
I The belligerent episode having thus
been closed. Attorney Stoll, for the de
I fense, was asking to be permitted an ar
1 gument in support of his motion to sup
press the depositions taken the day he
1 fore the trial when Judge Bradley ln
1 terposed: "I hardly think it Is necessary,
' as the Court was about to decide In
j your favor."
The Judge excluded the depositions on
I the ground that they did not conform
to the law that they must either be
written out by the deponent or by the
notary before whom they were Uikt n,
aa they were written afterwards by type
writer. 1 An exception to the ruling was taken
j for the plaintiff.
Another deposition, that of Mrs. Mary
1 Logan, taken before Notary I,owry
I Jackson, In Cincinnati, was objected to
by the defendant, but Judge Bradley
, decided that since more than a day had
been consumed In cross-examination of
I Mrs. Logan, the rights of the defendant
1 had been preserved, and admitted the
deposition, the defense noting an excep
tion. Mrs. Logan Is a Cincinnati physician,
as appeared from the deposition read bv
Mr. Carlisle She had In 1S84 treated a
young girl about to be confined, who
gave the n:me of Monica Burgoyne,
saying that her friends calleil ner
"Mnna," and the witness said that MlU
I Pollard, who was then In the notary's
office, bore some resemblance to hrr,
although she had doubtless changed. It
was the young woman's first child, and
she had represented that her husband
had died or there were family reasons
for keeping the birth a secret.

Considerable excitement was causae , I
among; Oravesenders In Brooklyn to-day J
over the statement made by John H. Jl
O'Rourke and James McKane that thsy j!
had placed the books In which John T. a
McKane kept the accounts of the town
In the hands of an expert accountant for , '
the purpose of clearing; the Chief of tba
charges that ho was short in his ao- j
The cause of all the excitement waa J
the effect the report had had upon ths M
Citizens' Committee which had been ex- J
amlnlng; McKane's accounta When th
Committee started on their Investigation
they were greatly hampered In the work
by finding that nearly all the books -J
were missing. m
McKane's friends say that as ths ea I
Chief had little knowledge of business J
methods he bad failed to keep props j
accounts, and had only a few books In 3
his possession when he started to Sing j
Sing to serve out the six years' sea-
Despite this fact, the Committee went I
to work with a will and learned that
McKane was short In his accounts nearly t
$200,000, which amount, as told In "Tba
Evening World" yesterday, was brought j
down to .90,000.
All the time the Committee were null- j
lng every effort to obtain more data thsy
suspected that McKane's friends were i
holillng back the books, but they had no j
positive proof that other books were In j
existence until Mr. O'Rourke and Mc- 1
Kane's brother made the statement that i
the books would be examined In their I
office on rourt street by an expert. 1
When I ..i-. i r George F. Elliott heard 1
of O'Rourke's and McKane's statements J
he at once sent for the Citizens' Com- 1
mlttee, to confer with him on the steps n
tn be taken to gain possession of ths 3
covetel books anil records. jS
The conference will be held In Mr. si
Elliott's office, 26 Court street, late this S
Mr. O'Rourke and McKane's brother 9
maite the statement In their anxiety to a
clear the ex-Supervisor. They had not 1
consulted any one, and now It was said d
on gooil authority to-day they have been i
taken tn task for letting the cat out
of the hag. It Is known now that tbs s
bonks which the Committee have been i
searching for are locked up tn J
O'Rourke's safe In hha office. 40 Court
street, Hronklyn. i
"If this is true." sal.1 Mr. Elliott this J
mnrnlng, "mid I have no reason to doubt j
It. we will take immediate steps to pro- A
cure these books.
"Neither the Committee nor myself are
playing the part nf detectives searching
for fraud. My clients would be only too
glad tn Hnd that the accounts of John T.
McKane are nil right, and as yet all tba ,
evidence is pointing the other way, ana
I have some new facts In my possession
which are nf a startling nature tacts
which I cannot make public, but which
prove to my clients that all Is not right.
"I will further- say that while It may
be true the public accounts of Graves
end may he straight and legitimate, ths
manner In which the accounts are mixed
up would certainly seem to Indicate
either grat negligence or ignorance on
the part if the man who kvpt them or
Brnss fraud. .
When asked if he knew what books Mr.
O'Rourke hail in his possession. If he had
anv, Mr Elliott could not say.
Mr Elliot then went on to say that ths
Committee could not And the books of
the town, kept bv McKane, which wars
product 1 In evidence during his trial.
"At that time." said Mr. Elliott. "1
first began the investigation, and while
he was on the witness stand. I had
the hooks there and made what notes I
could. Nnbqdy nntlced what I was doing.
II u is th.n that the Committee began to
sec that their investigation might bring
to light some queer facts, although, aa I
s.ud before, It is not the intention of my
clients tn persecute McKane.
"We propose to sift matters to the bet
torn, and when the proper time comes I
will make public the facts in my pos
session which nre known only ta th.
Committee and myself."
Mr Elliott refused to give out any In
formation on the next move to be mad
by the Committee, or what would be
done to procure the books which
O'Rourke Is said to hav. in his safe.
Mr. i'Rourke was in Brooklyn this
morning. Inquiry as to his whereabouts
brought out little Information.
"1 don't believe o'Hourke said ha
would place the books In the hands of
an expert," said George W. Roderick,
McKane's counsel, this morning. "Set
O'Rourke and i guess he will tell you h.
did not say so. Neither did the Chief.
s stryker Williamson, who Is Me
Kane's doxest friend, said: "I know
nothing about it. I shall say nothing.
