The. DUtrlct Attorney's office received
fresh Information concerning new hank
account!? of Ueckcr's yesterday. This
was turned over to Assistant District
Attorney Smith, who Is In charge of
the, protection money inquiry.
A transaction In which a Manhattan
police Inspector figures as the purchaser
of J90.000 worth of Long Island real
estate, was among tho thtnss brought
to light at the District Attorney's; of
fice. Tho Information, which soon was
verified, was brought In by a well
riressetl womnn who visited Assistant
DUtrlct Attorney Moss to tell of a con
versation she had heard. Mr. Moss re
ferred her to Assistant District Attor
ney Conlon. to whom sho save her In
formation In detail.
The womnn told Mr. Conlon that on a
date, specified she hail overheard in thn
office of a real estate man an Inspector
whom she can Identify thank the rpal
estate opprator for having saved J20.000
for the Inspector. The conversation that
followed revealed thn the Inspector had
been after the properly and that the
iral estate man had got It for him $20,
t'"0 cheaper than he hud expected.
Then Hip graft Investigators began to
die into Hip records of Long Island real
estate transfrrs. It took but little time
to learn that thp property in question Is
nt Ilavsldc. A thp same time the
searchers accidentally came across
realty purchases In Queens In which
policemen figure as the. upw owners.
None of these watt In thp JSO.OOt class,

The meeting was not open to thn pub
lic but Mr. Howling, after it wa over,
said that he considered it. wa a "wanton
waste of public money to hlro five lawyers
to do the work of the committee.
"Mr Dowllng does not uncle-stand the
situation." said Mr. HucUner. "Tha wav
I have planned this thine out I could use '
twelve lawyers right now. This inventi-
gallon is to be a big thing and Is not to be '

Mr. Flynn said that bo. had not vet re
ceived anv oftlcinl lintifir-utirn V,",m thn
leaurv Department that he had been i
released from his job in the secret. s,er-
vice. When he was asked whether or
not there was any truth in tho report that '
some one had ashed him to accept the
Police Commissionersliip he replied: '
"That is absolutely untrue. .Mavor'
Gaynor has not spoken to me about it, I
not-has any one else " '
The secret s.ervjCf man 8a j,j thHt his re
lallons with the Mavor had been cordial
when lie was in the Police Department
as Second Deputy Commissioner and had
remained so ever since.
Allan Kobinson. chairman of the citi- !
.ens' committee, made public the Iteter
which he received from Mayor Gavnor in
reply to his offer lo give iinv assistance
that he could in bettering conditions in
the city Tho Mayor's letter, which was
written on August 4. rollout.:
I am very glad Indeed to receive our,
letter. L'p to the present time I have te
celved no assistance, but rsther oppo
sltlon and embarrassment In the ieor
ganlzatlon of the Tollce Department, i
which has been grsduatly going on ever
since f became .Mayor. 1 suppose that
our committee knoivs that the way to'
stop graft In the Police Department with
gamblers and the like Is to i educe con
tact with the sources of graft down to
the least possible to one contact If poi-
slble. If ;.oii allow the Inspectors and
captains all along the line to deal wlibj
the matter you cannot possible- avoid
I trust that you will get a list of the 1
captains and Inspectors and studv their'
personalties carefully. I shall alwavs be
glad to have jour assistance.
Of course. notice that the Mayor
was not Invited to the public meeting,'
and f i otii the tone of It I felt that It was'
nol organized to assist the .Mavor. I
1 1 ust that It will turn out that I was mis
taken In that respert. Kvery one In this
clt knows how hatd I have worked since,
I have been Mayor to eliminate graft fioni 1
all the departments, I hope I shall now'
be supported from nil quarters,
