r ttJE CHANGE IN THE CITY CLUB
i The trustees of the City dub
i t have decided to oppose the passage
r lof the Elsberg Rapid Transit bilL
i For what reason
JiZrS The measure has hitherto had the
j i clubs support and still deserves it I
t if the club is living up to its charter
The Elsberg bill is citybenefit
legislation of a kind which it is pe
culiarly the function of the City
Club to promote It was framed
by the Citizens Union and has bee
s favored by most publicspirited bod
a cty u ies the Reform Club the Central
federated Union and the Peoples Institute among them which see in it
the only form of practical relief from the encroachments of the traction
r monopoly
7ft 1 < j Why has the City Club suddenly god over to the other side
1 1 i For the avowed reason that the necessity under the bill of separate I
tontracts for the construction and operation of projected subways would
I A work to the injury of the travelling public
iAnd because the city financially unable to build new subways and
private capital presumably RyanBelmont capital must be appealed to
i > What are the motives behind the published reasons It was charged
i1if iome time ago that the club is undergoing a gradual change of com
< plexion nits membership to align it with the Ryan interests Can this
< charge be true
wy Can there have been a substantial basis of fact in the statement
pfnade by a World correspondent of the highest character and credibility
a < It year ago that while the club is ready to denounce all forms of minor
I graft excise evils gambling police venality it has become strangely
j silent on questions of the greater graft of quasUpublic corporations the
< most dangerous and insidious form of public plunder
r j 1 Was the Clubs underlying sentiment onJhe Remsen gas bill voiced
lJnthe indorsement given that iniquitous measure by a trustee andby a
former president
Silence was bad enough If in its place there 1s to be outspoken
antagonism of the public welfare the dub is masquerading under a fate
k pretense It is belying its name and disguising st harmful obstruction
i > under an appearance of public service

rooms on the top floor at a new
At apartment bouse near the National
c Gallery He bad been an eccentric
savage Jokeloving man of whom little
was known and who had annoyed other
tenants by his frequent noisy sprees
I Rameau had been murdered ata his
room and thee body had in ta P most
unaccountable fashion been secretly
f removed from the premises
The strongest possible suspicion
t tpolntedto a man who had been em
ployed in shoveling and carrying coal
J > cleaning window and chopping wood
for several of the buildings and who
<
i a had left that very Saturday The crime
Jl tiftfl in fact been commlbted with this
niane chopper and the man himself
had been hard again and again to
threaten nameau Wholn his brutal
I fashion had made a butt of him This
inan was a Frenchman Victor Goujon
I Jiy name who had lost his employment
JIB a watchmaker by reason of an In
I jury to his right hand which destroyed
I u Its steadiness and so he had fallen
f c Jipon evil days and odd jobs
I 4 1 There V38a tortoise living in the

rather a pet and the negro would ome i
I Ii times uBet1lI animal as a missile fUnG
I l qnr it at the little Frenchmans head
1Z0l1ono such occasion the tortoise struck
J > J the wall BO forcibly as tto break its shelf
l and then Goujon seized a shovel and
I 4 ii I rushed at his tormentor with such blind
ct Jury that the latter made a bolt of It
Goujon after correspondence with a
i j relative In Franco who offered him
4 + work Cave notice to leave which ex
i pired on the day of the crime At about
1 3 sick that afternoon a housemaid
proceeding toward lamas rooms met

went away
The girl wen to the outer door of
Uuneaua rooms knocked and got no
reply Concluding that the tenant was
out ahe was about to use her keys
when she found that the door was un
locked She passed through the lobby
and Into the sittingroom and there
fell in a dead faint at the sight that
met tttr eyes Raxneau lay with his
back across the ota and his bead
Cooping wJthta an inch of the ground
On the head was a fearful gash and
below it wa a pool of blood
The girl must hare lain unconscious
for about ten minutes When she came
o her senses she dragged herself terri
flog from the room and up to the
housekeepers ajmrtments where being
an excitable and nervous creature the
only screamed lluntor and Immedi
ately fell in a fit of hysterics that lasted
threequortera of an hour When at lost
she came to herself abe told her story
and the hall porter having been sum
moned Ibuneaus rooms were again ap
proached
The blood stun lay on the floor and
the chopper with wtotch the crime bad
evidently been committed rested against
the fender but the body had vanished
A search was at once made but no
trace of It could be aeen iunrwhor It
seemed Impossible that It could have
been carried out of the buttling for the
hall porter must at once have noticed

HeWitt first Impulse wes to walk out

In the case bad been roused and he de
termined at any rate to examine the
rooms and this he did very minutely
By the side of the lobby was 4 bath
room dad m this was fitted a UPuP
wash basin which Howltt inspected
with particular attention Then he
called the housekeeper and made In
quiries about Koraeaus clothes and
linen The housekeeper could give no
idea of how many overcoats or how
much linen he hart had He had All a
negros love of display end was contin
ually buytng now clothes which In
deed were tying banging littering and
choking UD the bedroom In all direc
tions The housekeeper however on
Hejwltfa inquiring after such a gar
ment particular did remember one
heavy black ulster which Hameau had
very rarely worn only In the coldest
weather
After the body was discovered
Hewitt oeed the housekeeper was
any stronger observed about the place
whether carrying anything or not
No air the housekeeper replied
Theres been particular Inquiries about
that Of course after wa knew what
wee wrong alidthe body was gone no
body woa seen or hed have been
stopped But the hall porter says hoo
certain no stranger came or went tor
half aa hour or more before that tha
time about when + the housemaid sonr
