M.eo," and Angclo .Cava, known to them
' n "Al," had "framed up" tlio robbery.
Mr. Ducknor said that ho would bring
out to-day tho exact date of tho promo
tions of the two policemen, which, he said,
took place a few days after the robbery
luid the quick arrests in connection with it.
Mr. Buckner explained to the commit
tee that although it seemed necessary
to introduce tho evidence of men now in
prison, tho investigation of the committee
was based on talk in the l'olice Department,
nnd particularly in tlie detectivebureau.
to the eflect that the case was a "frame
up," intended to bring about tho promo
tion of the two policemen mentioned.
Vjie depositions were not put Into tho
record without a fight from tho three
minority members of tho committee,
who protested against taking the word
of convicts against that of policemen.
Alderman Folks of the majority asked
Jf it were not true that Cava had been
rejected by Commissioner Cropsey when
he tried to get on the force on the ground
that he had committed erjury in making
out his application. Mr, Buckner said it
was and that this was the way in which
the matter had come out In the tracing
by the committee of the police career
of men appointed by Waldo after they
had been rejected by former Commis
sioners for what they considered sufficient
The first deposition rend was that of
Frank Paris!, who was examined by
Ixuls Lande, one of the assistant counsel
of tho committee, at Sing Sing Prison
a week ago. Parlsl said t hut he had
lieen in the House of Hefugo and also
had lieen arretted two years ago on a
charge f burglary, but had been let oPT
with a suspended sentence.
Parisi said he had met Uherio Gimber-
dalo and Angela Cava, detectives at

of last March. Charlie Ilossi Introduced
him to them in Roldstuin's poolroom on

ing that he was a "iqtiarc fellow "
Charlie Roosi and I,eo himself, Parisl
says, went up to Forty-second street and
Broadway that night and were stopped
by Detective Cavone, who took Mosul one
side and, according to tho deposition,
. said: "You want to look out for that
fellow indicating I.eo); he's a cop.
Paris! says that Cavono then searched
him, found no weapon and said: "Take a
lido off Broadway and stay off." Tho
three then left tho neighborhood.
Paris! says that three days later he
met Al in a Third avenue cigar sloro
and poolroom. Rafael Debiese, Pictro
Romnelio. Loo. Al and Parlsl were present
. I.eo said: "Al is a friend of mine and a
good fellow. You needn't be afraid of
him. He's my partner."
They all played a fow games of pool,
went to a moving picture show and
brought up at Jones's cigar store at 328
East Fourteenth street,
A couple of days later a man known as
i Kweo came around and said them was
' a good job to be done in Sixth street;
that there was a woman who had a placo
I thero and that she had all kinds of ilia
monds and was easy. Parisl said there
1 weren't enough guns In the crowd and

Parisl says he didn't take part in the
fiiith street job, which, by the way, has
been brought to public notice only by tho
committee's securing tho affidavits but
met Al and Leo later that night. They
asked him If he wus afraid. They wanted
to know what he was afraid of and said
they had gone in after tho Job and asked
tho woman what tlio matter was. hh
,aid she hnd been lobbed arid tJiny then
went out and made it right with tho man
on the fixed post, the deponent hays.
On March 15 last, Parlsl swore, I ah told
them ho knew of a good job that a
woman wen t to the bank every Saturday
morning and took away anywhero from
$1,5111) to $1,000. Somebody expressed
doubt about such a iob. and Leo said:
"What are you afraid of? Wo will bo there

The group met the next morning

Mr. AVahle thereupon continued with
what might be taken ns Indirectly a
special plea tor Dago Frank, for whom
later he said could prove an alibi, In
which the lawyer placed the four de
fendants In two pairs In relation to 1

At Webber's poller room at Forty

the "llftli"' man left the place.
"In a little while the fifth man came

Mr. Wahle went on, "and this fifth un

Broadway in tho neighborhood of West
Thirty-sixth street rubbed its eyes in
amazement' yesterday ntternooiP over
the antics of five men who appeared to
be playing peekaboo with somebody in a
three story brick house in We.-t Thirty
sixth street, near the Marlborough Hotel.
Tho mysterious quintet was a detail of
Iiolice in tho process of raiding an alleged
gambling layout, but it has lieen so long
since Broadway has seen such an occur
rence that nobody recognized what was
Tho police gathered In fivo prisoners
and a nico, shiny roulette wheel, which
later turned out to be one that had been
captured once before,
Several duys ago Inspector William
I.aliey. boss of the lower Tenderloin, was
tipped off that a gambling layout had been
installed on the ground floor of the hoiu-e
mentioned. Detectives Owen Keegan,
David Kuhn and Dennis McClunn of his
staff scouted around for a lew days and
yesterday afternoon decided to get inside.
At 5 o"'eloek they arrived and posted
men ut the roar of the house, while Mct'lunn
and Keegan tried to get in tho front
door. In the basement of the lioiife is
a lunch room which has a small extension
under the first floor windows, and u)ii
tuts hutui took tils iiost in an emteavor
to peek in tho blinds. A uniformed
officer who didn't like Kuhu's looks, and
not recognizing him as n brother, began
to fan him with a club when ho refused
to get down. Thero were some hard
words before identities wero established.
In the meantime the men inside hnd
been alarmed by Kuhu's opening tho
shutters mid tried to escape, Finding
that they couldn't, the doors to the hand
somely furnished parlor and back room
wero locked, only to bo broken down by
Keegan and McClunn. Five men wore
found and arrest ed.
The prisoners gave their names as
