EXCISE GRAFT OF
$1,200,000 A YEAR
Liquor Dealers' Association
Said To Be Clearing House
for This Sort of
11 SWEENEY INDICTMENTS
Admissions Made by Harlem
Facts Gleaned in Walsh
Confession ? Two
Eleven separate graft indictment?
were filed against Dennis Sweeney, for?
mer police inspector, by the extraor?
dinary grand jury yesterday. The triple
alliance?Fox to Walsh to Sweeney?
backinq up the testimony of the graft
payer m esch instance, will furnish the
evidence upon which District Attorney
Whitman confidently expects to conviot
Sweeney m these cases.
T ?trough a half torn, begrimed ?crap
of paper which passed through the
hands of half a dozen persons before
Mr. Whitman was sble to lay his hands
on it tFie District Attorney was able to
establish yesterday that the excise
graft, since it was taken out of the
hands of the precinct and district com
menders, has been centralized and sys
temat zed m a fund which appro.
mate* $1.200X00 annually.
John Mustard, a liquor dealer, of No.
1 Mannattan street, who was president
of a district organization of the Liquor
Deelers' Association, was subpoenaed
yesterday and will be called before the
grand jury to-day.
The trail of graft fust definitely
opened ap by the disclosures of yester?
day /.as e.posed by tt'e written order
of a saloonkeeper named J. J. McGrath
to his bsrtSnder? Henry White, to "pay
John Mustard 120 foi r-'otection for
April arc! May." McGiath admitted
that fie handwriting on the dirty little
scrap of pape? was his handwriting,
arid he said that the time of instituting
the method of paying "protection"'
through t?ie Liquor Oeslers' Associa?
tion coincided with the time at which
Mayor Gaynor issued his order forbid?
ding pol'cemen to enter saloon? for ex?
Evidence of further specific in?
stances of grafting by Sweeney will be
laid before the grand jury The graft

them civilians now m office at Polic?!

been demoralized" under Commission?

Mi&s Ldlian D. Wald, before the same

of "pohcewomen" to deal with vice and
the social evil.
Second Deputy Commissioner Dough?
