Discovery That He Had
I) WYE It .MADE INSPECTOR
'"Sailor Cop"' .lumped From
liieiiteniiiit (o II irlios(
Grade in a .Month.
As u direct result of tho dlsoVdorl--'
houso raids mado by tho District At-
toniev's staff- Inspector Cornelius (J.
1 endcrloin, wns btnpped of his gold badgo
yesterday, reduci-d lo tho grade of cap-
tain and suspended from duty.
Within a few hours after Assistant
District Attorney Jamos K. Smith liad
proved thnt disorderly houses worn run
ning openly uptown CommlssIonr
Waldo Warned that Inspector Hayes
had Mild to Copt. John F. Dwyer that
tho Commissioner did not want disorderly
house raided or Interfered with.
Commissioner Widdo sont Immediately
for nil of tho Manhattan inspectors, In
cluding Hayes, lined them up in his pri
vate office, obtained from all of them but
Hayes a statement that their orders
had been to clean up their dletricta and
then accused Hayes of lying.
'Ihe New Tenderloin Inspector, In the
presence of his fellow commanders,
attempted to back up his accusation ot
the Commissioner mado to Dwyer.. but
Commissioner Waldo turned on him in
wrath, told him to hand over his badge
to First Deputy Commissioner MoKay
and to get out of tho office.
After telling the other Inspectors that
they would have to too tho mark or ex
pect what Hayed got the Commissioner
appointed Capt. Dwyer on Inspector to
succeed Hayes In tho New Tenderloin.
Will Pot Hayes oit Trial.
Hayeo will be put on trial, charged with
making u false statement and with failing
to suppress disorderly houses. If he Is
found guilty ho will be dismissed from
tho Polico Department. Tho disciplining
of Hayes was a plain hint to tho other
Thero liad not been for a long time so
much excitement at Polico Headquarters
as thero was yesterday afternoon around
4 o'clock. The nabobs of the department,
tho el.ct cuffed and gold spangled in
spectors, were collected hi tho ante
room of Commissioner Waldo's office.
Thoy wore whispering with their heads
close together. They lookl worried
and uneasy. Trouble was In the air and
it was as palpablo as tlie feel of a night
stick. As things turned out they had reason to
be n r.ous. When Commissioner Waldo
got nil tho details of the raids mado on
Thursday night by Assistant District At
torney Smith in inspector Lahey'a dis
trict and had heard frqm his own police
men that disorderly houses were flaunting
In Hayes's district the Commissioner saw
that ho liad been tricked and deceived.
Iio was without the shadow of a doubt
tha maddest man in New York.
Week after week the Inspectors hod been
placidly telling him that vice was dis
appearing from Manhattan They had
been furntsnlng roams or statistics as to
arrests and as to the nullifying acts of tho
The statistics wers about as valuable
for police work as crop reports They
meant little or nothing beo so the women
arrested were not the principals In tho
vice trafflo and they simply returned t
their resorts after being discharged or
Then Came the Explosion.
Th results of the District Attorney's
raids proved to tho Commissioner that tho
inspectors had been attempting to de
ceive him. That conclusion alone was
enough to enrage him, but when he picked
up a newspaper and read an Interview
from an inspector to the effect that be was
responsible for the lack of Interference!
with diborderly houses his anger exploded.
Tho Inspector was quoted as saying:
"I don't care whether they go into my
district or not. Of course there are dis
orderly houses In my district. I know
it. I have a list of them. Out I have ex
plicit orders from Commissioner Wuldo
not to raid any one of them, not to send
anybody Into them or molest them with-
e ut u direwt order to that effect, irom tno
Commissioner himself. Even when ft
housoholder makes, a complaint regard
ing a disorderly resort noxt door to him
I am not to act until I havo referred the
complaint to tho Commissioner' office.
Mv duty ends when l send a list oi places
.that I believe to be ellsorderly."
Mcnnwhllo tho Commissioner una sent,
for tho Manhattan Inspectors to usk them
why thoy ran their districts In so nlovonly
a fashion that outsldn Investigator could
step In ut any time and provo thnt vb-o
was on every hand. Hut thn newsp.inr
