said:
"Physicians had differed in their
statements to us of father's condition.

been told until this report that the

?public that his condition is as he has

"Dr. Richardson, of course, said no

In the event of Mr. Pujo and Mr. I'n

"As a son having a sick ?father, I

utubr which Representative Timothy

committed to an institution for th?- in?
sane. .
The i"ertifi.ate con ta toed little of a
persons! or confidential nature, but It
did cOfTOCt some false impressions as
to the character of "Big Tim" Sulli?
van? mental trouble. There wag noth?
ing !n it to show that he was suffer?
ing from n rellgio?is mama, as had
?been frequently reported.
Mr. Sullivan was examined as to his
sanity by Dis. John K. Herrity and
William R. Prit'hard, of New V??rk.
?During the examination, they said, he
insisted on the conversation being car?
ried on in whispers. He seemed to be
subject to forebodings of evil, declar?
ing in a whisper that the room was full
of telephones and dictagraphs. He
feared he was being "doped" by his
enemies, and that poison was being put
in his food and drink and was being
"pushed into the atmosphere of the
room." He also declared that his rela?
tives were being "doped." The certifi?
cate added:
Beginning In April latt, the gUeged In?
competent has mown many change?- in
cot.dltlun. speech and lial'it?. lie ha?? been

Mr. Sullivan shosved .signs of ?Musions
and hallu. ?nations, and repeatedly re?
fused food because of tear of poison.
?They reported that he never used to?
bacco, liquor or drugs in his life.
''The two examining physicians." the
Certificate says, "state that Mr. Sulli?
van's mental condition is such that per

The attempted robbery here occurred
at the ttchei ofTu'.'s of the Boston ?**
Maine Railroad, in Wsshlngton street,
this afternoon, when a man who hal
Jusf purchased a tk'hst for PltteMd |
suddenly pointed a revolver at Oeorg
Hachar, the cashier, and ordered hin
to give up all the money he had. A
Hachar eras slow in complying, th
stranger flourished the revolver am
ordered every person In the office to gc
into n. corner.
All complied except George Tlt^omh
a railroad ticket agent, who had Jus
entered. The bandit vaulted over th'
?ounter to secure the contents of tin
cash drawer, when he saw Titcoml
rush out the door. Instantly the ban
dit went over tho counter again, with
o*ut scouring any money, and dashe,
into the street, with the office fore?
i
after him.
Then followed a chase through ihr
busiest streets of the city, the police?
men who joined th? pursuers not dar?
ing to tire at the fugitive because of
th? ero erde.
Thinking, apparently, that he had
not been seen, the man bolte?l Into a

Former Keeper of Re?

MAY DISBAR A LAWYER
District Attorney's Inquiry Confirms
Tribune's Exposure of Desperate
Effort to Bribe Sipp with
$1,000 and Again Impli?
cates Police Official.
The maze of complex double ?-rose
ara ft cat lied <?n by the Tammanylzed
police ring of Harlem in handling vire,
gambling and excise in that territory
?as straightened out to a considerable)
degree yesterday with the actual arrest
and arraignment of Eugene A. Fox, the
patrolman accused by George A. Plpp
of being one of the system's collectors.
Out of the oompIWaliona of the Sipp.
Fox case District Attorney Whitman
had in hand after his work yesterday
a su nmarized situation embracing aub
?tantially these facts:.
Twentv-eight h?tela in Harlem aro
and have been paying police protec?
tion at the rate of $100 a month.
Between forty and fifty flats and
apartments in the ?ame territory
have been paying police protection at
the rate of $75 a month.
More than a acere of furniahed
room houses have been paying from
$25 to $50 a month.
The "ring" which has been collect?
ing this graft tell for yeara busied
? itself laat night gathering a defencs
fund of $25,000 for Fox?in a last des?
perate effort to atave off wreck from
the disclosures he might make if hs
decided ha had been deserted snd wit
to bs made the "scapegoat."
Inspectors in Fear.
Sipp, as owner of the Baltic Hotel?
had appealed to Captain Thomas W.
Walsh on many occasions to have hi?
$100 a month assessment reduc.d.
Sipp was told that his assessment
was part of a "system" and it wag
.?-possible to reduce it.
Back of Walsh, whose responsibil?
ity for conditions was apparently
recognized by Commiesioner Waldo
when he recently transferred him to
Staten Island, two and orabably
three police inspectors are trembling
in fear of the disclosures which they
know S pp can make and which they
fear he has already made to the Ois?
trist Attorney, and back of at least
one of those inspectors stands one of
the highest civilian administrative
officials of the department.
In the same category one of Tarn?
many's well known leaders snd s
group of hia '?eutenante ere awaiting
the outcoming results of the fight
started by Sipp, fearing that the po?
lice officials implicated, If pushed to
the last ditch, will reveal the political
ring behind the police ring to save
themselves.
Apart from these specific ?barges of
graft, an outline of which, it was be?
lieved, had already been given to the
extraordinary grand Jury, it was
learned yesterday that Mr. Whitman
had gathered up six witnesses who, be?
cause of poli? e rapacity or "double
crossing," were ready to corroborate
the startling story told by the Rippe
and could also add convincing evldenco
as to the participation In graft by po?
lice officials and Tammany politicians
not so far publicly named by Sipp.
Whitman Explains Secrecy.
When Mr Whitman was asked laat
nlKht why he had not put these wlt
nes-s.-s before the grand jury that in?
dicted Fox he replied, that for the Fox
Indictment nothing more was needed
than the testimony of Sipp and his son.
and that he did not purpose to permit
the names of his additional Harlem
:,'raft witnesses to become public now
for tear of police Intimidation auch ae
characterized the vicious attack upo'i
Hipp.
It is known the District Attorney
BOW has corroborative evidence ta?
prove that Captain Walsh and Sipp
?iml their two families were socially
intimate and that the 1100 a month
graft assessment paid by Sipp was a
matter of frequent j??king conversation
between the two men.
In spite of the heated denials from
police officials that Fox Intends to
"give up." it Is i fact that Fox. with hi*
counsel, Louis J. Grant, sought out
Mr. Whitman yesterday before Fox
was arraigned. Fox wanted to tail
to the DIstHCt Attorney.
Grant did not deny that Fox waa
preparing to give information to Mr,
Whitman. When the direct question
was put up to him, his only reply was:
"I don't care to be quoted one way or
another.'
Bearing on the same point, and In?
dicating also that the tremendous r.ratl
of graft by big officials of the Police
Department is close to the point of ex?
posure, the District Attorney's words
