Booker and Detective White on n charge
of carrying a concealed , weapon as he
was going into the Hotel Manhattan for
dinner. Thin was a case which, oou pled
with the collapse of flvo gambling cases
brought by Broker and his men, impressed
the special Grand Jury that tliore was
something wrong in the Police Depart
ment. Tabet is a small dark complex loncd man,
bout S3 years old, who conducts tours
to the Holy Land. He lives at 31 East
Sixty-second street and, his New York
office is at 389 Fifth avenue. Ho also

Tabet told the committee ho was going

Tho greater part of the committee's
session yesterday was taken up with
testimony in regard to the robbery of
Annie Sugar, known as Spanish Annie,
in Sixth street, and the daylight holdup
of Ella Nichols as she left the Germania
Bank, both of which, according to dep
ositions given by three convicts, read
at Wednesday's session, were framed up
by two policemen, Liberio Gamberdalo
and Angelo Cava.
Annie Sugar told of three men coming
Into her sixth street place and robbing
her and a girl and two men in the place,
and of her reporting it to the policeman
on poet. Hearing nothing Irom this
sho went to the station house and later
to Police Headquarters, where sho said
uiai a man wnoni no identified yesterday
as Inspector Hughes told her ho knew
she was "keeping joints and was going
to break her.
Lieut. Thomas Kelly, who was otj desk
duty at the Fifth street station on the
night of this robbery, March 10 last,
was asked why tho entry regarding the
robbery was put in the blotter over an
erasure of the usual oblique red line
indicating tho end of tho day. Ho said
' that in the rush of recording the roll
call he forgot to rnako the entry until
Just before he went off duty, so had to
erase tho finish mark, which ho had al
ready put on tho day's entries.
Lieut. Dotninick O. Rlloy made the
committee sit up with surprise by de
claring, whon questioned about a state

BOOM FOR NEW YORK
Association Decides to Inerensc
Membership and Get
OAYNOR DINNER GUEST
Hears Dans to Brinff Biff Con
ventions Her! Talks
The Merchants Association last night
set out to Increase Its membership
from 1,500 to anywhere this side of
5,000. Three i hundred members, which
meant every person at the "Get To
gether" dinner at the Hotel Astor,
unanimously formed themselves Into a
committee to get business men to Join
the organization this week and next.
They are going to divide Into squads
and comb the city, drafting every avail
able business man. They will hold noon
day meetings and make reports. Not
an Important man will be allowed to
Henry It, Towne, president of the as
sociation, who acted as toastmaster, ex
plained why the membership should be
increased. There are 1,500 members
now, each of whom pays $50 a year
dues, but more than the $75,000 Income
li needed to go on with the business
In hand. Tho merchants are going to
get to work In earnest to "boost" New
York, only Mr. Towne did not use that
word; they need lots of money for their
trnfllc bureau, which Is trying to atop
freight discriminations against New
York by all the railroads; they have an
Industrial bureau, established for the
purpose of attracting manufacturers to
the city, Chicago, Mr. Towne explains,
devotes more than $250,000-a year, to
tills purpose, and New York needs that
much too. They are also about to
establish a convention bureau, which
will bring conventions to this city. Such
a bureau brought $15,000,000 to Chicago
last year. They want a foreign trade
bureau and finally they want a pub.
llclty bureau, which will promote by
proper publicity the purposes ef the as.
soclatlon and of Its various bureaus.
Mr. Towne said that the association
already has spent $600,000 in helping
the business men of the city and has
accomplished much. He said also that
In some of them aid had been had from
Mayor Gaynor, who was present, nota
bly In the express strike. Then Mr.
Towne Introduced tho Mayor as the
"Business Manager of New York city,
the biggest corporation In town."
, The Mayor said he was very glad to bo
present. He knew the association and
had known It for a long time. He liked
the type of men who wero members, be
cause they were cool headed and long
thinking and did not give way to public
clamor. The Mayor then talked about
the Ramapo Job, of which he had a vivid
memory, and the express strike. He
said he had always asserted that Mr.
Towne had more to do with settling
that strike than anybody else.
The Mayor said later that everybody
remembered something about the sub
way question. This brought a laugh
fur tile year's excitement, and the Mayor
stated his position in the matter.
VTiat I went through that year I
never want to go through again," he
said. "I had two sets of newspapers
In this town putting my picture in the
paper, even with stripes on."
In all the controversy sensible mem
bers of the association who understood
had upheld him, he declared, for which
he was grateful.
Later there was a reference to the
Rosenthal cose, "the case of a police
lieutenant who had gone wrong." That
was not to be wondered at, he said. Ho
would not have been astounded If the
man concerned had been an Inspector.
In bis administration he had endeavored
to 'reduce grafting to a minimum and
feed concentrated it In three sections,
Jtvlth three men working directly with
the Commissioner. One of these men
had gono wrong. The fact had been
taken as a pretext to attack the entire
force, demoralizing It and demoralizing
Horry Wheeler, president of the
Chamber of Commerce of the United
States, also spoke.

BROOKLYN WATER FRONT
Irving T. Bush and P. A. S.
Franklin Differ ns to Pas
Thousand foot piers cutting into the
shore lines of Manhattan between Forty
fourth street and Fifty-sixth street were
recommended yesterday In a report to
tho Board of Kstlmato by John Purroy
Mitchel, president of tho Board of Alder
men; Douglas Mathewson, acting Comp
troller; George McAneny, Borough Presi
dent of Manhattan, and Nelson P. Lewis,
chief engineer of tho Board of Estimate.
The commltteo In its report quotod
Secretary Htlrason's refusal to allow
the extension of piers In Hoboken and
his advice to Uie New York city authori
ties to devise some other means of accom
modating long ships.
Tho committee said In part:
On July 22, 1012, there was submitted to
the flovernor of the State of New York a
report of tho commission to Investigate
port conditions and pierhead extensions In
New York harbor. This commission con
sisted of It. A. C. Smith, State Knglneer
John A. Bensel and Dock Commissioner
The report divides the wsterfront prob
lem Into two distinct parts: (I) That between
Thirtieth street and Fifty-ninth street, nnd
(!) that between Thirtieth street and tho
Battery. The adjustments suggested in the
northern section can be made without
reference to additional Federal action, since
no extension either of pierhead or bulk
head lines is involved.
In the section north of Thirtieth street
it Is nuggested that beginning at the norther
ly line of West Forty-fourth street and
running to the southerly line of West Fifty
sixth street 1.000 foot piers be constructed
by means of cutting away the inshore to a
point slightly east of Twelfth avenue. The
plans of the commission show that In till
way it will be possible for the city to secure
eight piers 12 feet In width with berths 200
feet In width between.
It appears to your committee after the
most careful study and InvestlKatlon that
this proposed adjustment H the bent which
could be suggested for the accommodation
of 1,000 foot ships In the Borough of Man
hattan. The waterfront section between
Forty-fourth and Fifty-sixth streets Is as
slightly developed as any section between
Fifty-ninth street and the Batter)' There
Is no expensive piers construction between
these points, and the present use to which
the waterfront is devoted, while important,
is not comparable with tho needs of ocean
Moreover, there Is no point In the borough
of Manhattan which furnishes a more con
venient landing plaee for express steamers,
so far as the needs of passengers and ship
pers are concerned, than the section between
r"orty-fourth and Fifty-sixth streets.
It is adjacent to the most highly developed
hotel and restaurant section in the city
and convenient to the great railroad termi
nals of the New York Central railroad com
pany and the Pennsylvania IUilroud Com
pany. The straightening out of the pierhead line
south of Thirtieth street, ai recommended
by the port commission, appears to your
committee to be essential for the ultimate
proper devleopment of this portion of the
waterfront. The new line would permit the
permanent extension of the Chelsea piers
to accommodate l,OM foot ships and would
make it possible to provide for piers over
l.OUO feet in length between Uesbrosses and
North Mooro streets.
Tho port commission's plan shows the
possibility of constructing 000 foot piers
between Mttle West Twelfth street and
Gansevoort street through the destruction
and cutting away of the new West Wash
ington Market and the possible extension
of these piers to a 1,000 feet In the event of
the War Department's granting the present
application for pierhead modification.

ment's oflioes at Pier A, North Hivor,

It is of fundamental importance that
any administration of the South Brooklyn
terminal, whether direct by the municipality
or indirectly through an agent or by pri
vate enterprise, should be planned und
conducted with the object of continually
Increasing tho degree of public control
over thn terminals so that the entire ter
minal district from Brooklyn Bridge to
Bay nidge shall ultimately be absolutely
dominated by the public authority of the
The city is the only prospective operator
whose Interest It Is to afford equal oppor
tunity to ail for the development of the
entire district as a whole. Tho monopoly
vulue of private waterfront ownership
based on control of the baeklands is fuding
away us a result of municipilixatlon with
the object of reduolng cost of service.
Irving P. Bush in discussing the ad
vantage of South Brooklyn for passenger
trnfllc said that with Albert llallm he had
made an automobile trip from the Bush
Terminal to Thirty-fourth street and Purk
uvenue, Manliattun, in tbirty-tlireo min
utes, wnilo ho said that on a trip to Ho
boken he had loen held up thirty minutes
waiting for a ferry Ho said that the Man
hattan waterfront in the futuie would
be needed for the local freight traffic
steamers, which run. 305 days in the year.
It was a wnato ol time to nave ne pas
senger steamers docklrur on the West
Hide of Manhattan Island, aa on arriving
tney only took about two uours to dis
charge passengers and their freight was
small in lniHrtunce, They then lay
uselessly In dock for a week or so. Only
about two hours was needed to embark
their passengers, so that most of their
tlmo nt tho pier was wasted.
P. A. S. Franklin, vice-president of the
International Mercantile Murine, said:
"I don't think that any one having M,
OOO.uou invested in a passenger, exuress
nnd mall steamship could afford to send
It to Mouth nrookiyn.

As for the moment of murder:
Gyp, Lefty and Whltey said they
went west in Forty-second street with
the "stranger" to Broadway, up Broad

to tho north side of Forty-third street
to walk to the 'entrance ot tho Motro
