people together In this big city, where they have
so little other opportunity. Then when we get them

Woman — Three Arrests Made.
The railroad passenger station at Purdy's
Station, WeMchefiter County, was entered in
the night about three weeks ago and a trunk
belonging to Mr?. Sanford, of New-Haven, was
broken open. Jewelry to the amount of several
hundred dollar? was taken. Other valuables.
Including a fur coat, were undisturbed.
The building watt apparently entered by some
person who had key?, as all doors and win
dows were intact. At once detectives were put
on the caso and silence was pre-aerved about
Last week the freight station at Gulden's
Bridge •was entered and groceries and liquors
were on the platform, outside when the station
agent discovered the thieves at work. Detective
Knapp was told at once. A raid was made on
a building: "which had been need as a toolhouse
by the railroad laborers, on the Lake Mahopac
branch of the Harlem Railroad. This house is
occupied by Italians employed by contractors
who are building: roads. Quantities of provis
ions, shoes and other articles were found. Three
men were arrested. They are all Italians. One
of the three, it Is said, acted as night watch
man for the railroad at Purdy's Station last
summer and fall.
The police now believe that the jewelry
thieves have been caught, although no jewelry
has been/recovered. The three prisoners are
now in jail at White Plains.
APPLES WITHOUT SEEDS.
Then Arc Raised by a Grower of
Two dozen seedless apples were received in this
city yesterday. Mr. Kelly, of Stelnhardt & Kelly,
Xo. 101 Park Place, to whom they were sent by the
grower, declared that they were the first to come
to New- York. They were grown at Grand Junction,
Col. The apple was propagated by John F. Spencer.
Mr. Spencer has been experimenting with seedless
apples for a number of years. It Is said that he
now has two thousand trees, representing twenty
varieties. In his orchard.
Externally the apple is like other apples in all
respects save one. The blossom end is penetrated
by a hole. In some of the apples this hole is as
large around as a lead pencil. It decreases in size
until it is leas than an eighth of an Inch in diam
eter The. apple is declared to be coreless. A cross
section shown an outline of the husk which sur
wi^^ii h H Be £? in th f ordin;vr >' apple. This is filled
with flesh. The apple trees are said to have, no
blossoms. The only thing that resembles a blossom
comes In the form of several green leaves that grow
around the little apple and shelter it.
DIAMONDS OF II A WKSHA W
Jerome Says They Arc Tributes
from the Pickpockets.
Police Commissioner McAdoo declined yesterday
to make any comment on the statements of Dis
trict Attorney Jerome that pickpockets operated
on streetcars under the protection of Central Office
detectives, and that the detectives shared in the
plunder. To reporters who asked for Interviews on
the subject, Mr. McAdoo handed out a neatly type
written sentence which he had ready in anticipa
tion of such inquiries. It read: "I do not deem It
necessary to say anything In reply to the state
ment to which you call my attention." Captain
O'Brien, the new head of the Detective Bureau,
seemed to be afraid to talk on the subject.
"When asked yesterday how much money he
thought the Central Office detectives had obtained
by protecting pickpockets on streetcars, Mr. Je
rome replied: "Jt is Impossible to make even an
approximate estimate. No one knows when the
system began, or when It will end. The complicity
of the detectives with the thieves goes back a great
many years, and It existed in Byrnes's time. .My
information is that the thieves not only give up Ml
per cent to the detectives, but when a thief
get* a fine diamond he has to give It up entire, as
additional tribute. The diamonds of the Hawk
shaws at headquarters have long been the subject
of wonder and envy to the uninitiated. The mys
tery Is now explained."
