Police Supposed to Have Boon
Represented by Them.
William .1. Burns named to the District
A tcrney yesterday tlireo men who have
rMde it possible for policemen to black
ball gamblers and disorderly houses
j,pfn"r.
One of these, says Burns, is a lawyer
jioliticiaii. who claimed to ropresent the
titv administration. Another is a hotel
Kn with influence in the Democratic
Mrty. This man represented the organ!-
ration. Tim third, less prominent and
f minor official of the Police Department,
made it appear that he spoke for the
tolice.
It ha been their custom, nays Burns,
to meet frequently in an uptown hotel
riot far from Fort '-second street and
Broadway. The hotel In which they met
was not tho Metropole, nor was it a resort
if common gamblers or lawbreakers.
In addition to information which points
to thete three as the board of directors
nf "raft Mr. Burns, has grounds, ho in
formed the District Attorney, for stating
that two polico inspectors, at least, were
rrrtitinc richly through the looting or
(Amblers and other iersons outside the
law.
Mr Whitman had two conferences with
Mr Hums yesterday. The District At
lorr.ey was anxious to know in tho first
pl.ve if Burns had obtained any graft
evidence by running real or pretended
jambling house or real or pretended
dswrderly houses.
"I was very much surprUed," said tho
Dinrict Attorney, "to read what purported
10 be descriptions of a method used by
t.y you in obtaining nvidenco agalm-t
corrupt policemen. If you had obtained
urh evidence It was my rignt to nave it
If von have not such evidence your name
hould not have been connected with
udt stories."
"It is absolutely untrue," Mr. Burns
ephed. "that I have been obtaining evi
dence bv anv such means. I would have
informed vou. of course, if I had taken
Kith measures. I did not lend my namo
10 thei- stories. It is not my habit to

Mid suggestions that have not boen made
public Some of Burns's information
had not even reached the District At
torney .NVithr Mr Whitman nor Mr. Burns
would i;iv a hint as to tlie actual methods
that have been employed, because it
would be ruinous to the investigation to
have, such publicity. The fact are, liow
vw, that tho information obtained by
Hurns in hi characteristic way points
to three men, two of whom are of some
irominentf, as the general managers of
th graft system.
The story is that the ring has been oper-
MinR extensively since about the time
that William J. Flynn, tho secret service
man, lft the Police Department. Whether
'r not Mr. Flynn has tolkod to Mr.
Hums U not known. But Flynn has talked
. 'o the I)itrict Attorney. At any rate,
t 'hi collections from gambling houses.
dioruerly houses and other sources of
tainted money have been systematized
er.d artivi. for upward of year.
According to Uio information laid be
fore Mr. Whitman, policemen had beon

i U-forn i-hrewd men introduced the dls-

The Kqultnble Life Assurance So
ciety has sold Its property nt 120 Broad
way nnd upon that site thero Is to bo
erected a new building for general
otrtco purposes. H wjll be known aa
the Equitable Hulldlng nnd It will be
thirty-six Htories high. It will have
the largest- floor space of any office
building In the world. It Is to be ready
fur necutmiicv not later than May 1,

The purchaser of the property Is a
corporation organized by T. Coloman

dent and architect of the new Hotel
McAlptn, nt Broadway nnd Thirty
fourth street, Is tho vice-president, and
by him nnd W. A. Day. president of
the Equitable Life Assurance Society,
the negotiations for tho aale of the
property were conducted. The cost was
$14,000,000, which Is 2S2 a square foot,
not n high price for that section.
This plot Is bounded by Broadway,
Pine, Nussau und Cedar streets, nnd
was occupied by the Eqult-blc Build
ing, which was destroyed by fire Janu
ary B last. It Is In the heart of the
financial district, and its ouuook upon
four Important streets Is to be en
hanced in value by the peculiar con
struction of the new building.
1 Special attention Is to be paid to
I the accommodation of Institutions that
EQU1TABL
K I nut ' require a large oren of floor space, or
more than one floor, with complete fa
irillilen for lbrht. ventilation nnd tlexl-
i.tlltv of Interior arrangement. To this
01l(I tno unt system Is to bo followed
)n tnp construction, with private ele
vator service for each unit nnu sucn
other exclusive facilities as would ne
desired If the unit were u separate
building.
A fenture uf the ground floor Is to
be an arcade extending from Broadway
to Nassau street, and crossing at right
1 angles in the centre of tho building
I another arcade running from Pine to
ur.ot Thl urrjtde will be two
tipper floors. The elevators will lie so
grouped as to be equally ncce.SHlblo
from either nf the arcades. Broad
marble staircases will lead from the
arcades to the basement thoroughfare.
As In the old Equitable Hulldlng. the
Savarln cafe will Ik- located In the
basement, and It Is said to be the In-
tentlon to make Its decoration and
nppolntments elaborate. Above the
ground floor there will be a mezzanine,
subdivided Into spaces for offices und
111,11 wl" overlook the main
arcane, tlie seconu iiuur in io v
ranged for banking purposes, and from
that floor to tho thirty-sixth there will
be offices with special arrangements for
tenants who muy desire them.
The top floor will be arranged for
club purposes and with accommoda
tions for a law library. The Luwyers
Club had quarters In the old Equitable
Building, but it was said last night on
behalf of the Du Pont Company that
It is not yet known whether this organi
zation will have this top floor or not.
Of other tenants except the Equitable
Life Assurance Society nothing could
be learned. This company Is to resmno
business In the now structure as soon
u ,t ls ,mpieted. It Is not known
,,ow manv ,()orH wll) ,)t. lv,. over

( As to Its exterior the building Is to
be simple and dignified In design. Its
' style will be Italian ltennissance, nnd
1 stone, tapestry brick and terra cotta
will be used In the construction, A
j fenture'of tho building will be the ar
I rungement of light courts In such a
way that tho elevator corridors on each
floor will have access to outside light

Gen. Orozeo has submitted the following
conditions:
The reslgnntlon of Madero. The nam
ing of a provisional President, his pref
erences lying between Francisco de la
Ifhrra and Garcia Cnldcron. Upon the
naming of one or the other of these
men should either or both decline, the
naming of any other man satisfactory
to himself nnd a majority of his officers,
he will guarnntec that the revolutionary
army will lay down arms and return to
paths of peace. When all this has been
accomplished It Is proposed that a gen

which Madero may be a candidate If he
cares to do so, provided no display of

London, Aug. 13. A despatch to the (
Dally totrs onif I.rader from Odosa
tells of a recent revolutionary plot on
board tho battleship Ivan Zlatoust at
Bobaatopol, for which ten men were
sentenced to death.
The revolutionists had the daring ob
ject of seizing the Imperial yacht
Htandnrl while the Czar and his family
were on board voyaging from Nolto to
Sebastopol. The Czar was to , have
been compelled to abdicate his throne
or abrogate his powers and proclaim
u limited monarchy.
The seizure of the Imperial yacht was
to have been the signal for a general
mutiny of the crews of the Baltic squad
ron, who were to arrest or murder all
tho officers and uttack Cronstodt and
St. Petersburg simultaneously.
Illgld censorship exercised over the
press has prevented any reference to
this Incident or the recent symptoms
of grave dissatisfaction among the rank
and file of the army and navy, and the
officers of nil grades have been com
pelled to sign an agreement not to dis
cuss any phase of the discontent.

Washington, Aug. 12. Present indi
cations are thai the. Underwood c.vxiso
tax bill will fail of imssagn at this session.
The fate of this measure is dependent
on the result of tho conference between
tho two houses on the Senate bill provid
ing a reduction tn the tariff iato on sugar
Instead of admitting the product duty
free, as provided In the House bill.
A conference on the sugar bill will bo
held to-morrow. The two houses nie
widely separated on sugar and the Demo-
orats oxpeot to seo this bill, us well u
Uit excise measure, fail in conference,
The excise bill levying a tax of 1 itr
cent, on all business Incomes in excess
of $5,000 a year was framed with a view
of making up the loss in revenue tliat
would follow the admission of sugar duty
free. If the sugar bill falls the only
excuse the Demoorata had for preventing
the excise measure will have lieen re
moved, and accordingly the bill will he
discarded.
