Jof=pph B. Braman. »-ho has practised ' law In
New York for thirty y.-ars and has offices at No.
ISO Broadway and at No. 1274 Broadway, was hon
orary discharrod by Magistrate Barlow in JefTer-
Fon Market court yesterday, where he was ar
ralpnfd on the charge or his daughter-in-law. Mrs.
Jocrph C. Braman, who alleged that he had stolen
v from her when she entered his uptown office
and started to miafh the furniture. Magistrate
Ki.rlo»- denounced the charge as an outrage, and
committed th« daughter-in-law to the workhouse
for disorderly conduct. He then suspended sen
tence and paroled her in charge of the probationary
The court proceeding wa« a climax to many years
of friction between the elder Mr. Braman and his
pom because «f tli« latter'p difficulties from time
to tim« with the. police of several states. The lat
«*n trouble carted when the daughter-in-law en
tered Mr. Braman'f office on Friday night and
made such a disturbance that he caused her ar

■went as complainant against her. he founo hi? son.

been taken she made the charge of larceny against
The elder Mr. Rramnn is a thirty-second degree
Mason and a Mystic Shrlner. as well as judge ad
vocate of New York Commandery of the Knights
Templar. He was bailed *out within an hour by
John I- Thomas, of No. 161 West 3«th street. A
bystander in the r>n]ice station Informed him that
he. had overheard Mr. Braman's son tell the woman
'to make the charge or larceny. When the matter
came up in court yesterday the magistrate ex
c.latmefl: "I -will hear no charge against this man.
The whole affair 3s an outrage."
TTh<in th« elder Mr. Braman -%as seen yesterday
afternoon he told a strange story of "a modern
prodigaJ son.*' as he referred to Joseph C. Braman.
"Why." he exclaimed, -when I -was coming out
of court to-day that young man said to me. 'Well.
ho-w* did you enjoy being locked up all night?' I
hadn't been, as a matter of fact, and I told him
bo ought to know more about jails than I did.
He knew what I meant, for he's been locked up
a number of times in the last ten years, thoush
as far as 1 know he's never been convicted. His
mother, my wife., -who is at present visiting friends
In Massachusetts, has always befriended him and
got him out of scrapes where I wouldn't lift a fln
«r*r to aid him. Bflesasss I think the punishment
•would do him pood."
Mr. Braman then jrav*» a sketch of the young
man's career, the skeleton of which Is on file nt
Police Headquarters. "He Is naturally brilliant."
observed the father, "and he studied law for sev
eral years, hut was never admitted to the bar. al
though he lias practised on his nerve. He often
said -when he was young that anybody who works
for a living is a fool, and that idea has been his
•■ November. 1597, young Braman was a commis
sioner of deeds In Massachusetts, and was removed
by Governor Wolcott. The elder Mr. Braman, who
Is a commissioner of deeds for every state in the
union, has experienced some annoyance by the
publication of this fact, which concerns his son
only. About this Time, according to the father,
young Braman was indicted lor grand larceny,
having been charged with -holding out" 512 from
one John Smith, a client. -He hoodwinked a Cen
tral Office man," said his father, "and got away.
The cas-e was settled out of court.
"A trick of which he afterward boasted was one he
worked on his mother in 1838. She is a notary public,
you know, and assists me in my work. He wrote
on the typewriter a recommendation for a clerk in
the office who wanted another position. He also
made a carbon copy and asked his mother to sign
both of them, saying that her name would signify
more than his own to a prospective employer of the
clerk. My wife -wondered why she need sign both,
but she humored him and did so. He kept his
carbon copy, as he afterward confessed, and erased
all the lines of typewriting. He tcld us after
ward That he didn't know whether to fill in a will
or a deed over her signature, but decided on a
deed making over all her property in Los Angeles
to him. Then he said he was sick and persuaded
her to send him to California for his health.
"In L*>* Angeles be employed a seal maker to
ina<.e a seal of the fictitious notary public whose
name he used in the deed. After the seal was made
he told the maker he. wanted to take a sample im
pression to show to a friend. The sample -was
made on the deed, fo he needed the stamp no more
pnd never paid for it. He thought this a. good
joke. Then he recorded the deed, and on the
strength of It mortgaged the property for 5.70."
The elder Braim.n, with a sigh, took from his
desk a great bundle of newspaper clippings of the
period. These told of the meteoric career or
"Svney Tye's Night Owl Burlesque and Extrava
ganza* Company." -which young Braman organized
in Los Angeles after the mortgage episode. The
Night Owls stranded at Phoenix. Ariz., and 'Tye.
an alias of young Braman. disappeared. The father
became suspicious and wrote to a legal acquaint
ance in 1.-OS Angeles to find out what his son was
doing. When he learned of the fake deed and
the mortgage, the man who had given up *00 asked
for the STWS* of tb« Night Owls' angel, lie was
taught i,, New Mexico, but the Governor refused
to grant radii ion paper?, and he was set free.
"The n<xt we heard." said the lather, "was when
he got -n trouble in Denver. My wife mnt him $:»)
to get him out of It. and the. lawyer had hired
took the money and went off on a spree, spending
all of it- The lawyer got three years for that, and
my wife sent another I2M order. This time he got
out of his scrape and came to New York."
It was shortly after his return that the news
papers exposed young Braman as the manager of
a "will factory," where wills were filled out with
fake witnesses. The young man disappeared, his
father said, and now that the chief complaining wit
ness is -dead the matter has been dropped.
"Since that time." BaM the father, "this young
man has led a charmed life. Men have come to me
with btadca they have cashed for him and I have
told them to go ahead and prosecute him If they
wanted to. for I would not help him. Nothing
***>ms to have come'ot their anger, however. About
right months ago I heard he had collected nearly
Jl 000 from liquor dealers in and about Riverhead,
Long Island, and acted as their counsel, although
he has never been a member of the bar. After all
that he has done he caused his wife to complain
csalnst me on a trumped up charge. But I will not
at-einpt 10 prosecute either of them. Even though
he has done this to me, I will not repay him In

WHAT CEMENT IS DOING
A MODERN GIAST.
It Holds Up Skyscrapers and Defies,
in Tunnels, the Force of Rivers.
The subject of Portland cement ie to-day or.e^ of
.the most important and most interesting In New
York and the entire East. From a practically un
known and but little used material a few years
apo. It has become as much a staple as wheat or
steel, and absolutely essential in practically every
important construction and engineering undertak
ing of the present time. It is revolutionary- It
has largely displaced wood and bricks. It has
made possible the modern skyscraper, and the
consequent increase In land values. It has made
possible New York subways.
It surrounds the Ftecl and forms the foundations
of the million dollar structure, and makes the
humblest home better and cheaper. It is cheaper
and more enduring than any other structural ma
terial 'known :o the builder. It has made pos
sible most of the marvels of architecture and engi
neering of to-day, and new uses are being con
stantly discovered for which it is better adapted
than any other known material. With its aid
American engineering and architecture are being
born again, a reincarnation such as the world has
The history of the world, even Including the days
that saw the birth of the pyramids, the aqueducts
of Rome, the great wall of China and otrr mar
vels of ancient achievements, shows little or noth
ing that can compare with the gigantic work of
the structural improvement now under way in and
about the American metropolis. Within a period
of less than ten years there will have been ex
pended on this work little less than $2,000,000,000.
The stupendousness of these undertakings is real
ized when we \ consider that a single one— New
; York's new water supply— will cost upward of $160.
000.000 and rival the Panama Canal. The greatness
of this undertaking lias been thus outlined by a
' recent writer:
Picture to yourself a reservoir covering ten vil
lages, for which twenty-three square mile? of land
have been condemned and one railroad has to be
bought and submerged. Imagine a great dam. near
ly two miles across the face and almost two hun
dred feet high; back of this an artificial lake con
taining enough water to till Broadway from curb
to curb in a stream three foot deep, and flowing at
three miles an hour for nearly a year before the
reservoir is emptied. Such Is the Ashokan reser
voir, and it is only one of the eight reservoirs in
cluded in the Catskill water scheme to feed the
gigantic concrete acqueduct that is to run from
the heart of the Catskills to Manhattan.
During the possible eight years required for the
construction of this aqueduct, eighty-five miles in
length, and which, in fact, is an artificial river of
concrete from one to three feet in thickness, mill
ions of tons of Portland cement will be used. A
monster cement-lined conduit, blasted from the
solid rock, will pass under tho Hudson at Storm
King. In addition to all this, it is probable that
the top of the aqueduct will be made into an auto
mobile highway from New York City to the Cats
kills, in which case it will be 100 feet In width,
having concrete walls throughout its entire length.
The Mew York public has ceased to gasp at in
dividual projects costing $.10,000,000 or even $150.
©OO.OOO. The Grand Central's terminal and that
of the Pennsylvania will each cost the former
amount, and it was the cost also of the McAdoo
tunnels. But the Pennsylvania's tunnels will cost
$75,000,000, as will also the Hudson lUver interstate
bridge, while the new state barge canal will cost
SlOl.000,000; "new bridges to Brooklyn will cost $100,
000,000. and other municipal improvements at least
In addition to these fir" many smaller undertak
ings, such as other bridges costing H0.400.W0. an
dock and harbor; improvements costing a like
amount. But there is another factor. New York
is the fastest growing city in the world. Conserva
tive estimates place its population fifteen years
from now at 5.000.000.
Every year fifty thousand new families must be
provided with homes, and. every year, too, fifty
thousand other families must abandon their abodes
because the old-time structures are to be torn down
to be replaced by others. In the construction of all
of which concrete is an essential factor.
An interesting fact in connection with these stu
pendous undertakings, public and private, is that
a certain single factor, seldom thought of by the
general public, Is essential to and must enter into
all of this work. This factor is Portland cement,
the basis of concrete, without which practically
every one of these gigantic improvements and her
culean projects would be out cf the question. Of
all the long list of contemplated Improvements
submitted last year to Mayor McClellan by the
Board of Estimate-* li«t that totals" t2M.«taja>_
not one can be carried to completion without the
use of Portland cement.
When on« grasps the fact that Portland cement
in the form of concrete annually enters into the
construction of skyscrapers costing millions of dol
lars, the homes of one hundred thousand New
York families, that it composes the sidewalks
fronting these abodes, that the walls find floors
of all modern tunnels are made of it. that It en
ters into practically every class of construction,
public and private, in and around New York, one
realizes to pome extent the Importance and the
I sstlll SS of this comparatively n«-w Industry, nnd
especially its importance to New York and its
In view of the facts .lust presented, the bunding
of one of the largest Portland cement r' :t " ts l:l
the world within a few mttes of New York City,
which promises to deliver Portland cement >•> n- *
York City at a lower cost than it can be Tn;t<l- ;.: ■!
delivered to the same market from any other
locality, becom.s a matter of the deepest int. -rest
to every person Interested in N<»w York and its
The Seaboard Portland Cement Company, Incor
porated In this stale, has acquired what engineers
and experts pronounce, because of unusual natu
ral advantages and its location In relation to the
New Yoik market, one Of the most valuable Port
land cement properties In the world.
The property referred to comprises over seven
hundred acres, situated directly on the Hudson
Kiver, one hundred miles above New York, and
has practically inexhaustible deposits of raw ma
terials us-ed in making Portland cement. In view of
the scarcity of suitable raw materials in the vicin
ity of New York, the practical Inexhaustibility of
the raw materials is of the highest moment to the
city and state, because of the vital importance of
Portland cement and concrete in the success of
the vast structural and engineering operations now
being carried on, and that must be carried on in
Upon this property the Fuller Engineering Com
pany, one of th*> leading exclusive cement engi
neering and .construction companies of the country,
is now building for the Seaboard company a thor
oughly up-to-date plant to have a capacity of 7,000
barrels of Portland cement a day. This plant will
have for its product direct water transportation
not only to New York, but to the entire Atlantic
staboard. With water transportation, and able to
load cement at th* works in the evening and have
it in New York ready for delivery the next morn
ing, this Is. to all intents and purposes, equivalent
to a Portland cement plant, with Inexhaustible raw
materials to draw on, in the heart of New York
City— the greatest user and the most Important
irmrket in the world for the produ.t.
While the. freight charge on much of the cement
now use in New York City is $1 40 a ton, or 28 cents
a barrel, the Seaboard company expects to d.-livar
its product to New York by water at not to BBOSSi
€ cents a barrel, an advantage of appioxlmately 22
cents a barrel.
The company has even greater advantages on
account of water transportation as compared with
rail transportation in the seaboard cities and towns
of New England. With a plant situated ao that it
has water transport direct to New York, with
Inexhaustible raw materials and a modern, up-to
dat« plant, and able to produce and deliver for New
York use the highest possible grade of Portland
cement at over 20 cents a barrel less than Is possi
ble with much of the present supply, this company
should have no difficulty in selling In New York
alone its entire production, and the benefit to great
er New York and to every person affected by the
development of a plant situated as this -will he— tn
all intents and purposes a New York plant— nu.i.
