That Miss Marie Nndore, a slender,
sinuous vision In clinging black. Is not
now on her way to France to gladden
the hearts of the boulevardlora la due
to the gallantry so exquisite of Capt.
VaacO of the French line steamer La
Touraine, which sailed to-day for
Havre. Clell ines braves, drhe eight of
beauty In distress halted the big mail
steamer off Quarantine while Miss
Marie, who comes from Montreal, was
sent ashore In the tug of M. Io Docteur
You see. Miss Marie's brother, Phll
lippe, was on Ills way to France to
visit his grandparents, and the young
woman accompanied him to the ship
to say goodby. Moments (lew along

The first Intimation they had that the
Touraine was oaat.ng oft was when the
tumor of her revolving rcrews vi
brate 1 through her fabric.
"Mon Dleu-" shrieked Miss Marie.
"Norn d'um nom!" thrilled PhlUlppe.
Tiioy ruehed on deok. A big etrtp of
angry, towing water, whipped up by
a stiff br.-eae, already lay between thorn
and the dock.
Picture the scene ao distressing, mes
SUtailt There was beautiful Mies
Marie In tears, PhlUlppe In distraction,
the other passengers In spasms of sym

quartermaster, whs strangely moved.
Mai Marin shrieked, PhllUppe swore
and somebdy rati to ttll the gallant
t'apt. Veeco, who summoned the
brother and sister to the bridge.
"I demand mat I be set on shore!"
cried the slender vision In Mad;.
"llelus! Mademoiselle, that is a thing
In, possible." explained the captain. "It
is too rough. I'm afraid that we must
have the pleasure of your charming
presence all the nay to Havre."
N m d'un chlnn! What a quandary
emibarrasslntr for Miss Marie. Before

DOWN A LADDER WENT MARIE
TO RESCUE BOAT.
Capt. Ve o proved good as his
word. Oft Quarantine the ahlp was
halted and a signal for the doctor's
boat w as run up. Out came the Jit tie
craft, bobbing like a cork over the big
seas. What could have happened on
La Touraine, wondered the officers In

Maryland Man Could Have
Paid Fine or Gone to Jail
Friend Whipped Him.
(HwcUl tn The Fieatag World.)
FREDERICK. Md., Feb. (.-Released
from tha Jsll window bara to which he
had been handcuffed while given fifteen
Ushea for wife beating. Robert PhlUlpa,
a white man and city employee, the
manacles still clinging to his hands,
turned to Sheriff Fagan, who applied
the lashes, and clasping Fagan's band,
asld. "Much obliged. Sheriff."
Phillips, who had beon convicted of aa
sault after brutally beating hie wife,
had been given his ehajce of sixty daya
In jail and a tine of gaPbr the whipping
post. Ha chose the latter. The court
decreed that he be given 16 lashes.
"Twenty-five dollar la a whole lot
of money and sixty daya la a long
time to spend In Jail." aaid PhlUlpa
when aslied his reasone for hla choice.
"The law won't get anything out of
me unlesa It takes it out of my hide."
So It was taken out of his hide and
the whipping wlaa admlnlsterod by
Sheriff Pagan, who was his friend.
However, Just before the whipping
I'hlJllpa sent word to Judge Anders
that he had changed hla mind and
would rather go to Jail. The Court
declined to change the sentence, say
Irw that Phillip had chosen when he
had the opportunity.
The third floor of the Jail was se
lected aa the place for the whipping.
To the bars of a window about the
middle of the large room the prisoner
had been fastened by two pair of hand
cuffa to the bars. Hla hands had been
raised above his head. Thla was done
before any persons were admitted to
the room, and when the fifty visitors
wanted Inlo the apartment they found
Phillips very nervoiw, grasping the
gaatlni; over the window and shaking
like an nspen leaf.
Hla undershirt had been left upon
him. Sheriff Pagan walked to the pris
oner with a short plaited whip In hand,
known as a stallion whip and said. "I
am now about to carry out the order
of the court. You have chosen this
form of punishment, and It Is my duty
to Inflict it. Remember, I have nothing
against you, and I hate to do thli be
cause I have known you al! my life.
You have brought thli upon yourself
and a man so cowardly as to beat bia
wife deserves such punishment."
To thla Phillips replied:
"I know it, Mr. Fagan, and I don't
blame you."
Sheriff Fagan then began to apply the
whip. The blows were applied m quick
succession and about the fourth lash,
I'hilllps cried: "Mr. Fagan, don't hit ma
near the neck."
The other lashes fell fast until the
fifteen nere OOmpUted. Sheriff i.'agmi
was his own counter and stopped
promptly and turning to Dr. J. o Hun
drix. the Jail physician, asked that the
man's back be examined.
The (lamination showed grg r(.d
nelte had been raised but no blood
drawn. Several of the blows of the
whip were administered with consider
able force, and almost every blow le.'t
its mark.
Deputing at once began releasing he
man and us soon as the rlrTlit hand had
been released and the left was still
handcuffed to the bar, Phillips reached
his hand to Sheriff Fagan and said:
"Much obliged . lerllT." PhlHIpa donned
his shflrt, his vest and coat ami then
asked: "Doctor, does this settle It?" uc
was told it does and he left the Jail.

Sweeney and Two Men He Succeed
ed, Hussey and Thompson, Ac
cused in Further Confession of
Capt. Walsh, Who Will Bare
Whole "System" as Grand Jury
Witness.
Police Commissioner Waldo suspended from duty this afternoon,
pending trial on charges of grafting1, Inspector Dennis Sweeney of rhd
Sixth District, CapY James E. Hussey of the Rdckaway Beach Precinct
and Capt. James F. Thompson of the Lee avenue station, Brooklyn,
Hussey and Thompson have been inspectors and both have been in com
mand of the Sixth District in Harlem.
Police Captain Walsh, under suspension and a self-confessej
grafter, made a statement to Third Deputy Commissioner Newburger
this afternoon, in wtiich he accused Hussey and Thompson of taking SO
per cent, of his graft collectors during the period when they were In
charge of the Sixth District. Hussey and Tiorrrpson served there In the
interim between Sweeney's first command of the district, in 1906 and
1907, until he returned in 1911.
WALDO INVESTIGATES "HIGHER VP" CHARGES.
As soon as the Third Deputy reported to Commissioner Waldo the
order suspending Sweeney, Thompson and Hussey was issued. Com.
missioner Waldo sent Commissioner Newburger back to Wabh's home
to get additional details, especially with respect to amounts and dates as
(0 Hussey and Thompson, and as to Walsh's statement to District-Attor
ney Whitman last night that part of the graft passed downtown and
landed in the pockets of an executive official of the department at Po
lice Headquarters.
Walsh mentioned to Mr. Whitman the name of the Headquarters
man who was supposed to get a share, but his accusation was not spe
citic. Qiininissioner Waldo wants all the information Walsh has about
this phase of the scanJal and it is announced that if the accusation war
rants the same action will be taken against the Headquarters official that
has been taken fllMi Sweeney, Thompson and Hussey.
Inspector John P, Dwyer has been temporarily assigned to charge
i f the Sixth District. In addition he will remain in charge of his own
district, the Fourth. Sweeney's ten plainclothes Central Office men were
transferred this at'termion, and Dwyer was ordered to organize a new
staff.
District-AV.ornev Whitman and Assistant District-Attornev r.rrwhl
went to the home of Capt Walsh late this afternoon with a stenographer.
They expect to get a detailed statement trom him to-night, to which ha
will affix his denature under oath.
Ill the latest grift developments tre
District-Attorney and the Police Com
missioner are forking In co-operation.
Mr. Waldo Is now convinced that high
police officials have been pulling the
wool over his ees and he Is determined
