cuuo I First thu law A It stands has It t be
carried out and second U 1 that law forever
law l on the statute book or shall wo abolish It i
None
The Coroner piustd for an answer
A tamo and he proceeded
cmo I believ It 1ms I l bo carried out every law
Iln I the countr was when I lead tho papers In
about our clllens calling on the Mayor Mr
blronc and tolling I him that If the Sunday law
IM enforced they would all vote again for
Tammany Hall and I felt ashamed of myself
and I say to myself I cannot b true My
experience with the press has been such that I
dldnt see how It could be true and I carat to
New York back and I found out unfortunately
It wM tru In part
The crowd cheered The Coroner went on and
talked about Mr Roosevelt who hadnt got
there > el and about the spy system Then he
anted to know what rl h the Union League
bail to have wino on Sunday if Terrace Garden
couldnt have It
I members of the highest clubs con drink
the drink But
he said then flowery can
treat discretion must be allowed in permitting
thatAfter
After awhIle the Coroner got around t
Beret btrunz and he said
I blame Major Strong for having broken the
ulema promises ho made before election He
told us he would uo his Influence with the Leg
Utitnro a butter law to et and not one thing
did ho do to carry out that promise Mayor
Strong an honest man is I believe Not in forty
year have we had a more honest man the City
Hill In But he did wrong In that he did
wrons
I About this time Mr Roosevelt came in and
Jr the Coroner pulled out of his pocket a piece of
piper containing an Interview with Commis
sioner Parker
I want Mr Roosevelt to hear this he said
The interview was the one printed In THE Ben
yesterday morning The Coroner crunched it
In shouted hIs flst and held it high over his head a he
hont
M Iprotest against such thlnss Hessys the
Germans cant get a Continental Sunday hero
and they are welcome to obey our laws First
of a he has not rot any business t welcome
tii We are here by right u much right as he
hu t b hen We are not obliged to accept
anything we flnd here and 1 we dont like an
institution weve rot a right t rote against it
and change It I want t say that Mr Parker
makes a great mistake when he says the Ger
mans are the ones that oppose the enforcement of
this law I have met Americas as enlightened
a any German ever was
The crowd here broke into ran of laughter
ir
What did I say said the Coroner t Com
missioner Roosevelt Was It good 1 Mr
Eoosovelt told him what be had sid and the
Coroner repeated I Americans u enlightened
A any German ever was who want the law
changed Everybody who Is I lot stuck up in
bigotry wants a change And the crowd yelled
tome more
The Coroner rattled on in dialect for ten or
fifteen minutes and then said he couldnt say
any more because Mr Roosevelt was there
waiting to make a speech but there would b
Other occasions when ho would talk
SOME or Ki nOOSEVEITB BlEECH
President Roosevelt was then Introduced He
started out by saying
Just a word in the beginning suggested by
blnnln
I what has been said I como here to speak to
you caring nothing for creed and nothing for
birthplace of those whom I address because
Iipeak as an American to fellow Americans
We all stand alike on the platform of honesty
and upright observance of the law Now I bu
gin with pricking an empty bladder The news b
paper press has been filled for several days with
veiled eulogies of me
Certain statements have appeared In some
papers to thu effect that under the now admln
titration of tbs Police Department crime In this
Polce Departmon
thi
city has Increased These statements are abso
lutely false I hold in my hand the official
flsures giving total number felonies reported
at too station houses and the total number
numlr
of arrests for felonies during the lInt three
urlul
months of the present jear when the
old organization of the department was still
undisturbed a compared with the last six
weeks during which time tho force has been
absolutely under the new direction The total
number of felonies reported during the month
of January February and March was 700 or
anaveraeo of HW per day The total number of
felonies reported for tho month of Juno nnd
onehalf of the month of July was flii
less than seven per lay At this rate
the figures for three months felonies
would be 020 This would go to dhow that
toe statements that crime has Increased nro
jot only untrue but the reverse of truth that
crime has decreased qulto markedly and that
any etatempnts tn tho contrary are mado with
deliberate bad faith Till arrests for felonies
cover H large number of felonies not orIginally
reported VheIl a policeman tees I felony
committed 1 ho makes an arrest and re
potts It j a an arrest nnd not an n
holly In January February nnd March tho
pests for felonies numbered nls In June nnd
ilt lrt two weeks of July m arrests werii
IK eel for flonlf s For the three months under
iiVM r Klmt > tho arrests for felony averaged a i
trifle over tin perdu nnd In tile last viz weeks
owing to greater activ It and real of the police

in a window looking on while Brown silver
plated the bad coins slid backward off the

Carr escaping
Iho moment tho operatives got Into the room
the girl and Bill tho liruto rushed at them The

United scale
The regulations referred to section 01 rot
ntlve to the mode of confining prisoners and
convicts are contained In the statute and as
applicable to the question before J ou I shall
read several sections of the law Judge La
combo read the sections which stated that the
Shcrlll should receive prisoners should not let
them out of bis custodi and that all prisoner
should bo kept separate as far as practicable
that they should see only counselor religious
advisers subject to tIle proper restrictions and
that they can get extra food at their own ex
pence
In respect to the liability of a Sheriff or his
subordinate keepers for the escape of a prisoner1
lawfully committed to his custody either on
civil proce or on a criminal charge tho law ha
long recognized two different classes of escapes
and here to prevent misapprehension I may
point out the use of the 150111 eScape In such
cases flue word Is used in local terminology to
Indicate both the act of the prisoner In recap
log und the act of tho custodian in suffering
him to escape I say that the law has alwuya
recognized two ell lie rout classes of escapes
First voluntary ficapos that Is to say an es
cape actually permitted by the custodian na
escape In which the custodian has actually as
sisted by seine positive act or deliberate omis
sion An escape of this character ba alwnyli
been deemed a very serious crime both on lUr i
part of the escaping prl ouur juul on this twi t oVv
the guilty custodian Uho second Ua oft
escapes recognized by tho law are known as
negligent escapes that Is to bay rbcapca due to
the negligence the custodian In guarding the
prisoners Such an escape as this hus long been
recognized by lie lau an a crime Hut uh mn
a solutitary escape HUB at common law a felony
a negligent escape was a niisderlleauor only
Now Chic jurisdiction of a Grand Jury of the1
