v. hen the offer of a reward was talked
So great was the hltorlc merit of the
ling that It been hard fur any one
to place n value on the sent. In the
Orant family It was considered a treas
ure without price. Intrinsically It was
understood to be worth $21,000, but with
the association attached to It by betas

Mrs. Jones tlrst ml.-sed the ring In

p.pe. There wad a slight delay In re
(nrung the Ices to the hotel manage
ment and by the time systematic ef
lo wrre undertaken to tlnd It the
ri had been washed out Into the street
wcr ami probably Into th river.
Hut to those who were Informed of
jjisappar.tnce It seemed likely that
... gem had lodged In one of the nil
ricrou." traps that were connected with
l:t hotel plumbing between the bath
i io;n and the street sewer. The most
virnush kind of a search was Instl-
.. N. W. Northrup, the engineer
the Itenal.-'sance, made the first ex
imlnit.jii. With him was n young man
u'n d Watson, who last night was the
a' ting manager of the hotel, und who
infirmed the story.
Thvw two men opened all the traps
In which the ring might have found
resting place and cleaned out all the
nam pipes. They found small trinkets,
hut nothing of any alue.
li was for the reason that the Llod's
"'nipany prides Itself on Its ability to
return lost articles to owners who have
'iwured with them that the most com
rrhpnMVH search was then Instituted.

Men entered the manholes on Forty

of the Renaissance, and swept the sewer
clean of all refuse. Nothing: was found.
Then they carried their work further
.'ilon:; n Forty-third street. Every
pianhole between Fifth avenue and
P'vtnth avenue, a distance of a third

Alo the sewer between the manholes
vas cieaned out, as had been done in

tardiness with which news of the find

to sift Into Mexico city and to thu public
Is characteristic of the Mexican method.

a few miles from the glint of the rail
way tracks running from Vienna to the
Ottoman capital, voiced this prediction
with all the fervor of a moral convic
tion. For the Hulgars bellevo that Adrlan
ople la already theirs. As their mili
tary experts In the war office In Sofia
years ago moved little pins back and
forth across the map from the frontier
to Constantinople, so they have moved
steadily and surely In accordance with
the long planned orders of these ex
perts, tlrst at Mustnpha Pasha, then to
Kirk Kllls8eh, then In front of Adrian
ople, until now they have passed that
outpost of the Ottoman and are driving
nt the Oriental railway nnd the cutting
ofT of the Turks In Adrlanople and in
all western Turkey,
It Is now evident that the Bulgarians
will waste no time besieging Adrla
nople. They will instead, press on to
the ntack of Constantinople, Uustlng
either to take Adrlanople by one swift
attack or leave It so Isolated that the
troops In that city can be of no assist
ance to the threatened capital.
The Turks at Adrlanople had planned
In case of defeat to fall back upon
Haba-Bskl, which the Hulgars took yes
t rday. They were planning to Join the
main division of the Turkish army con
centrated between Itaba-Kskl and Luto
Hurgas, but the column of Bulgarian
troopa that swung Into the little town
yesterday blasted that hoe.
TJie next big battle undoubtedly will

diet an overwhelming Turkish defeat.

JAILED AS A COINER
Man Acquitted of Killing Wife
SKCRKT SERVICK TIPPED
Federal Detectives Arrest. Him
in Room in West lOtith
Allison Mason MncFarland, who on
October IS in Newark, N. J., was ac
quitted on a charge of having murdered
his wife, Evelyn, has been arrested again,
this time by tho Federal secret service
tnen, who charge him with counterfeiting
30 cent pieces.
MacFarland first started to copy the
hilver coins when ho was in the Essex
county Jail waiting to bo tried n second
time for murder, it is said. To while awny
tho time he made moulds of tin foil by rub -
blng the tinfoil over coins and then filling
the mould with candle drippings. Ho strung
these moulds tip around his cell, and the
Federal authorities learned of thorn and
decided to watch MacFarland if he got
out of jail.
Ho denied to Federal detectives that
the Idea came to him then of counterfcit
Ipg so cent pieces by this new method,
and asserts that it merely suggested
a way of making cheap copies, of expensive
silver ornaments of origtnnl design by
making a mould out of tin foil and then
filling the mould with a composition.
He used coins in experimenting with
this process lecause he had started with
them, he said, nnd did not know that
attempting to duplicate United States
currency for any purpose is unlawful.
After MacFarland was acquitted lie
went to livent 100 WestlOOth street under
the name of Allison Mason. Secret service
men watched him nnd after some purchases
they say, he made recently of silver foil
and solder and other articles which might
be used in counterfeiting they decided
to call on him at his rooms and look over
tho work which required such material.
Secret service men Callahan and
Schroeder dropped in on MacFarland
Saturday afternoon nnd found in his
rooms moulds of SOcent pieces and in his
pockets about fifteen unfinished coins,
some ot which iiad been completed on one
side. He had not tried to pass any of the
They were not particularly good counter
feits, but MacFarland told them that his
work of copying silver pieces wns still in
the experimental stage. He had at first
tried making plaster casts of the coins
nnd then filling them witha composition.
Then he covered the result with (-liver
foil, which didn't look very even and
didn't stick well.
He next went back to his original idea
of making moulds of the sllwr foil and
filling them with the composition, which
produced a better likeness to the coin.
It was this style of imitation which
was found in his room. He did not use
acids in the work, and acting Chief John
Henry, who is taking William Flynn's
place as head of the secret service in this
city while Mr. Flynn N working for the
Atdermanic investigation, says that he
does not think the acids found in Mac
Farland's home in Newark, where his
wife died, had been used for tho purpose
of copying coins.
He, was taken to the Old Slip station
where he was locked up under the name
of John Williams, and he will be arraigned
before Commissioner Shields this morning.
MacFarland lived alone at the 100th
street house, and so far as the detectives
could learn he has not yet married
"Bunny" Bromley, whose letters to him
were read in the murder trial. Several
letters from "Bunny" were found in his
pockets when he was arrested and led
to his identification. Miss Bromley is
still in Philadelphia, tho detectives think.

Gustavo Ilatz of 70 South First streot,
Brooklyn, was acting as "log suatchur"
in tho hold of the steamer Armfrid at the
foot of Van Brunt street yesterday. It
was his duty to fix tho big iron tongs thnt
dangle from one end of the lifting chain,
then to give tho signal to hoist away.
About 2:30 o'clock the hooks dropped
into tho hold for another load. There
was tho customary nauno and thon the
engineer got the signal to hoist away,
or thought ho did. Instead of wheezing
over this load the littlo engine took it
easy. The drum took in the lifting chain
by yards instead of inches and a flapping
figure came into view.
It was Matz suspended by tho fourth
finger of his left hand nnd screaming as
the lone cracked and his finger ring bit
into the llesh. For several minutes ho
was suspended eight feet above tho deck
while the engineer frantically worked his
levers antl a crowd gathered.
When Itatz was finally lowered to tho
deck he was unconscious, One of the
hooks had caught in his ring nnd Itatz
iiad l)oen snatched out of the hold Instead
of tho log ho had picked for tho journey.
He was removed to the Holy Family

Charles Becker, convicted of the mur
der of Herman Rosenthal, stood at the
bars of the first tier gateway of the Tombs
yesterday and told In detail the things ha
might have said In his own defence had
he been allowed to take the stand.
"Why didn't you take the stand?" h
"Oh," and his hands, that had bean
clenched upon the Iron, flashed open,
"it would have made a difference, but m
man pays lawyers to tetl him what to do."
"Will you take the stand if you get a
"If I'm permitted a second trial," ho
said, and looked far away. "I'm not
sure. Newspapers have aroused pubtio
opinion so much against me that I can
see the chair ahead."
"But the Court of Appeals Is a calm
"They are only human," said Becker
quietly, and then began to talk.
There were new lines on the face, but
no sign of weakness. All afternoon
he had been in tho counsel room down
stairs, his wife outside the fine grattnp
through which nothing might pass. On
parting, he had followed her wlth hir
eyes nut through the framework of light.
Now he seemed to be seeing this, rather
than the reporters, and his eyes wcrt
fixed and steady.
lie told of having been forced' Into
meeting Rosenthal, of his relationship
with Rose, in which no money pased,
"That's as true as God is in heaven and
I have no reason to deny it," he said.
"Perjury isn't as big as what I stand con
victed of." '
He spoke of Rose's dealings with Rosen
thal, which he called a partnership; of hie
movements on the night of the tragedy
and of testimony that Commissioner
Waldo and ex-District Attorney Jeromo
might have given. Through two long
hours his voice was steady, never raised
or nngry, but sad.
"I don't know that I could say anything
that could help, there's been so much that
was derogatory. It has been very un
fair. You'd think I was one of the worst
men ever turned Ioo4e in this town.
"I stand convicted of murder in the first'
degree, one of the worst crimes in the
calendar, practically without hope. But
I believe that if I had been peraitted'to ;
take the stand publio opinion and the
verdict would have been different.
"It's all a very long story. But the
closeness of a rat like Rose and myself
can bo explained away. Certain affilia
tions with men of that stamp are necessary
for a police officer. They give the names
and addresses of the men who play and '
the officers obtain introductions through
them. In the history of police work I
know for a fact that stoolpigeons and
crooks wero used for that kind of thing
way back in Byrnes's time.
"I never paid Rose a dollar. He cams
into my service in a peculiar way. He
was what I would call a natural born
stool pigeon. After I had raided a plaos
at 133 Socond avenue in the early part
of October, 1911, he came to me and of
fered his services. He asked that It be
with the understanding that he could i
run his place on Second avenue unrao-
tested. I told htm I was not in a
position to do that.
"Ho asked mo thon would I extend
consideration to certain other gam
blers, I didn't promise anything; I said
I'd see what could he done. He brought
introductions for Freeman's and Bus
line's und a number of places.
"From Uiat time on there were raids
on seventy-five or more houses. Thou
sands began to vrite letters about me,
condemning me, saying anything they
thought would be detrimental. Naturally
I didn't make any friends among gam
blers by thosn'raids. It all told when I
got into trouble.
"In his summing up Moss spoke of the
brutality of those raids. There was
only one case I can say that even ap
proached nn assault. That was In
llergh's, at 70 Fourth avenue. , The man
w'asn't badly hurt. He was tearing up
slips wanted for evidence, and I pushed
him I didn't hit htm over money bags
and tie fell."
Becker sighed and the big shoulders
"Then he continued on as my stool
"Ro never asked me for money. I
often wondered why he didn't. Later
on I learned that he Intended to go into
partnership with Rosenthal, He came
and told me of it and satd he hoped I would
not interfere with it any more than with
any other place, and I told him I would
make no special effort unless sodirected,
"Did you ever take any of Rose's
"NeverThat's as true as God is in heaven.
I have no reason to deny It. Perjury
isn't as big as what I'm convicted of.'
Then Becker told of the origin of what
he believed was enmity between Ross
and Rosenthal after the partnership.
