He referred to the investigation ns
"petty little Republican political ring

tho sworn testimony of Commissioner

.Mr. Creelman for investigation the papern

Commissioner Waldo abolished.
Commissioner Wnldo had sworn that
he turned over to Mr. Creelman the papers
in nil the disputed cases so that the Civil
Servico Commission might mako the
proer inx'estigatlous. Commissioner
Creelman sworo. yesterday that Commis
sioner Waldo had taken to tho offices of
the Civil Servico Commission papers ln,
nH ho recalled, forty-seven cases and had
eelwted out of that number some fen
cases. These latter papers he hnd taken
away with him, never turning them over
to the Civil Service Commission, tho wit
lies said, ln n number of the remaining
thirty-seven cases, Mr Creelman stated
yesterday, Commissioner Waldo had
uskeel that the names bo recertified and
this request had been complied with
without investigation by the Civil Service
To Method CmployeA.
In tliu cases which remained two methods
of disposition were employed by tho
commission In a inrt of these cases
tlie applicants were called before tho
commission nnd questioned by iTesident
. . , . ,. , , .
I teelmati. huch applicant was asked to
explain false statements ho had mado
in his aflldavit and in practically every
caso he pleaded that ho had not under,
stood tho question on tho affidavit as to
whether or not he had ever been arrested.
Tho minutes of tho commission's hear
ing in each of theso cases concluded with
n sentence to tho effect that the appli
cant's nnmo wns ordered returned to tho
eligible list and recertified. In ono or
two of the cases brought up yesterday
other witnesses hnd been called; but in
the majority tho applicant himself waa
tho only witness.
Tlie second method of disposition of
these remaining cases wns tho recertlfica
tion of the names without even calling
the applicant to testify. While with
regard to individual names mentioned
Mr. Creelman thought it probable that
some other inx-estigntinK had been done,
he said that there was no record of it
und no means of showing whether there
had been investigation or not.
At tho time tho Civil Service Commis
sion had no investigators of it, own and
had to depend on tlie work of the Com
missionors,.who sought to attend to these
matters outside of office hours, and on the
work of one physical examiner who was
called on to do other investigating as he
Mr. Creelman became incensed nt the
questioning before tho afternoon was
over and interpolated a statement in which
he characterized as u lio tho remark made
by Mr. Huckner in tho examination of
Mayor C.aynor regarding an Increase in
tho rates for burglury Insurnnco In New
York, saying thnt he declined to be ex
amineel further by u liar; referred to the
reports of tho police Investigation bureau
as lying reports, called tho Aldermanlo
investigation n "petty little Republican
ring political affair" nnd called Alderman
Downing n liar when tho Republican
Alderman objected to uuch characteriza
tions. Counsel Huckner took up with Mr.
Creelman the names of fifteen of tho men
who were recertified by the commission
and upK)inted by Mr. Wnldo after they
had been rejected by Mr. Cropsoy on the
basis of tho police investigation bureau's
report. The president of tho Civil Her
vice Commission was kepi on tho stand
for nearly four hours, nnd hU examina
tion was finished, nt least for tho present.
