ALDERMEN TELL OF THEIR MOTIVES.
Against Independent Electric Company to
Save City Plant Scheme.
The Tammany Board of Aldermen yesterday. In
the Supreme- Court, before Justice Bischoff, aa-
Burned the attitude of objectors to the entrance of
a new lighting company into the local field. Th«
Manhattan and Bronx Electric Company, which in
December asked the Board of Aldermen for a fran
chise enabling It to do business In competition with
tha lighting trust, and found itself "held up" by
the Tammany leaders in. the board, appealed to the
Supreme Couprt for an order compelling the alder
men to transmit tha proposed ordinance to the
Board of Estimate and Apportionment for its ap
proval, according to law. The company has a
capital of $10,000,000, and asked for a general fran
chise. The ordinance, after Introduction, was re
ferred to the Committee on Water, Gas and Elec
tricity, of which Mr. Doull Is chairman. The boar.l
refused to refer the ordinance to the Board of
Estimate and Apportionment. As a mandamus ac
tion was threatened, forty-eight aldermen, all mem
bers of Tammany Hall, including Viee-Preeldent
Timothy P. Sullivan, Mr. Doull and John T. Mc-
Call. chairman of the Finance Committee, retained
L. Laflln Kellogg to represent them. -The right or
counsel to appear was denied by Catlin & Curtis,
who represented the company, but without avali.
It appeared that the aldermen were of the belief
that the granting of a franchise would tend to em
barrass tne- city in its establishment of a munlclpa.l
Mr. Kellogg paid that the granting of an order to
compel the aldermen to act would pra.ctlca.Hv be
coercion. The aldermen had at any t.me the fight
to use their discretion, and he suggested that the
granting of the franchise asked fc-r might be a
plan on the part of interested persons to get a
franchise, for iho purpose of sale.
On February 13 the entire matter will be sub
mitted to Justice Bischoff fop his determination.
THINKS POISONING DELIBERATE.
Coroner's Physician Scouts Accident Theories
of Cause of Kunkci's Death.
Although they have not abandoned the attempt
to solve the mystery of the death of Joseph S.
Kunkel. of No. 332 Nassau-aye., Brooklyn, which
was caused by cyanide of potassium in a bottle of
ginger ale taken by him a week ago last Sunday,
the police are baffled to find a motive on the. part of
any one for murdering the man. They say that
they have not the slightest clew pointing to any
one, and th.it they do not know in what direction
to turn in looking for evidence. If nothing new
turns up between now and the nit;ht of the cor
oner's inquest, next Thursday, it is likely that the

Coroner's Physician Wuept is strongly of the
opinion that the poison was , ut in the ginger ale

to say that the cyanide of potassium was some

"BAT" PRESIDENT CHOICE
Masterson Is Made a United States
United States Marshal Henkel yesterday verified
a report that ho had appointed William B. Master
eon, widely known as "Bat* Masterson. as a deputy
marshal in this district. He said he had cent a let
ter to Masterson at Hot Springs, Ark., telling him
of his appointment, and he expected his new deputy
to join his staff In a few days. Mr. Henkel would
not say that he had appointed Masterson at the
personal request of President Roosevelt, but as
serted: "I appointed Mr. Masterson on the recom
mendation of friends who aro among the best men
in this country. I have no doubt that he will, be
i a valuable official, and I am glad of the opportunity
to have such a man on the staff of my deputies."
Although he has been talked of as a man who
had shot as many as fifty men in his career as a
marshal In the West, and although he was identi
fied with sporting men for a time. "Bat" Maaterson
has always borne the reputation of a "square"
man, who was to be counted on the side of law
and order. He became famous In Dodge City aa the
town marshal there in the early '80s. when he
Issued an ultimatum that all gambling there should
be conducted on a square basis. He was obliged
to fight with the "crooked" gamblers, and showed
he was a dead shot In several cases. In 1887 he
went to Denver, where he became a United States
Marshal, and he was sent to Cripple Creek to aid
In suppressing lawlessness tfrere. \
For a time he had a "sporting" house in Denver.
He was an official in the first prize fight between
Sullivan and Corbett, and later at the fight between
Corbett and Fitzsimmons. He came to this city at
the request of Chief of Police Byrnes, In the fall
of 1893. to act as body guard for a rich man who
had been receiving letters from a supposed lunatic
threatening to kill him. Mr. Byrnes said a man
who was a sure shot, a quick shot, and one who
could be counted on not to hit the wrong person,
was wanted for the occasion. Until the writer of
the threatening letters was arrested, Masterson
followed the rich man about. Since then he has
lived in this city much of the time, and he has
been employed occasionally at the racetracks by

police seized some gambling Implements in a room
in the house, and was taken with other prisoners
to Police Headquarters. He gave bail, and later
was discharged, it not being shown that he had
any connection with the gambling place. A re
