rumors that Giraod had sailed for the West Indies;
that he had shipped on a lumber schooner plying
between here and Southern ports, and that he had
been seen in several nearby cities and towns.
Xothin? came of their investigations and the au
thorities are now satisfied that Girard Is in hiding
somewhere in New-York, probably in The Bronx.
This belief was considerably strengthened last
nieht when Coroner O'Oorman jeceived a tip that
a. man arswering Guard's description had been
seen on the Sd-ave. "I/ station at l..th st. Cor

It Is said that th" main question to be raised
when the plea is finally taken before a judge
will be concerning the secrecy surrounding the
drawing of the grand jury. It is argued that a
grand jury under the Constitution and laws
must be drawn in public. This is construed to
mean thai any person who feels that he may
be investigated by the jury may be present and
see the names drawn from the box and know
who the persons are. This is declared to be the
constitutional right of every citizen. and was so
contemplated by Congress when the act was
passed. It i« charged in the plea that the date
and hour of the drawing were kepi secret and
the packers were unable to learn who had been
selected to sit on their case, although the gov

PRAYERS FOR SALOONS.

At least four Tonkers churches held prayer
meetings last night, at which prayers were, of
fered for the enlightenment "of those who main
tain open saloons and for those who are respon
sible for their maintenance." Discussions fol
lowed, in which many of those present charged
that the city officials were responsible for the
saloons being op>?n on Sundays, and the gen
eral idea was expressed that only those who
would strictly enforce the law should be placed
The movement for the general prayer mo-ting
was started by the Rev. Charles L. Walworth,
pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church,
of which Mayor John E. Andrus is a member.
It was at this church that the sneakers were
loudest in denouncing the city government and
demanding: reforms. John C. Havemeyer, John
S. Kennedy and Dr. F. A. Cook were the prin
cipal sneakers. They thought It was not right
to ostracize the saloon man. but that he should
be subjected tc moral suasion. As to the city
officials, it was declared that they were elected
to represent the people, and that th?y must be
required to enforce the law strictly.
At the Central Methodist Episcopal Church
the Rev. Dr. Hartsook led the discussion along
the line of th«» question "If the Christian were
placed in the same position as the city officials,
would he enforce the law one-half as well?"
