the committee, suBKcsted to the minority
Alderman that the Idea was similar
to the "outward order and decency"
mentioned by Mayor Oaynor.
She said she was paying Maa.i $60 a
month, as were the lessees of other flats
In tho building. Persons doing a more
extensive business than her, she said,
had been paying $100 to $1C0 a month
To return to the .Hine incident, she

she must get out In four or Ave days be
cause of the cleaning up brought about
by Judge O'Sulllvnn. She went to Mass's
otnee at his suggestion, but he could not
help her, and from there she went to
see her lawyer, a. Mr, Halllgan.
She told the lawyer that there had
been a "fake" raid In a flat next door
and that nil the raiders had done was
to pull furnishings Hbout a little. The
lawyer, she s.ild. remnrked, "Hut of
course you're not In the 'trust' and
you'd better get out."
Following directions given her by her
lawyer sho said she got a van and moved
out on .Tune :!0. the day before her July

A week later she went to Mr. Maas
and asked him If there was a chance to
open up her flat sig.itn. llo told her to
wait a little longer, but to call on him
now and then. When she saw hltn the

rfhe had better leave the city again be
cause she might ho subpernnod. He ad
vised going out of the Slate, she says",
ho nlie went to Atlantic rity and re
mained there until September IB.
There was something of an upheaval
in her world following the murder of
Rosenthal. Fifty-eighth street was
pretty well cleaned up and everybody
began moving uptown to the district be
between Ktghyt -fourth nnd 110th streets,
and later to the district between 110th
and 117th streets.
On her return from Atlantic City she

her he didn't think she could reopen a

and there encountered on the street a
Dr. Hamburger, who, fine says she has
been told. Is related to Maas and who
has many patients. Hhe says, among
those In her -world. She had first

that practically all tho flats on the

posed to conduct.

She moved In on October 1. While

that she would have to move. She said

her former employees in the neighbor

complained about her.
She telephoned to Maas. who asked:
"Can't tho doctor keep you there?"
As soon as she was able to get out
sho met Maas by appointment In a
liquor store kept by Sol Wolf, and
there, she say, she was Introduced to
a policeman whose name was given as
Skelly. She didn't know whether his
first name was John or not. Maas. she
says, told her not to tell the policeman
she had been living In the Manhattan
"How much aro you going to charge
me?" Mrs. fSoode says she asked the
policeman. Sho says he replied, "$150."
"Never In the world, .Mrs. uoocio
answered, and explained that she had

her, "We're getting It In 104th street"
She tried to get the policeman to ngree
on $30 a month, but he refused, and
tlnally an appointment was jnadc for
two days later.
Meanwhile hhe says she saw Maas
and that he advised her to offer Skelly
$R0 a month. When she kept her ap

She says he told her that Wolf would

she take a flat In one of the "Kean and

careful of strangers and that If com
plaints came In ho would let her know.
Wolf camo for the $23 still duo on the
first month the day beforo It had been
promised and got It. He also told her
that she needn't be careful of the door
any more, that If business was poor
he could admit strangers If she saw fit.
Two strangers came at 11 o'clock that
night and asked to see a youne woman
who lived In the flat. There was an
argument on the ground floor, another
tenant Insisting that he had been waked
up by one of the strangers ringing hts
bell. Tho Irate tenant remarked that
tho building was no longer respectable
for his wife to live In,
Mrs. Goode told him that she knew of
seventeen flats In the house that were
not respectable and advised him to take
his wife out as soon as Tie could. The
two strangers sho later found to be
Policemen Hall and Dwyer. At fi
o'clock the next afternoon Hall returned
-with a warrant. '
"Are you Detective Skelly'a man?"
Mrs. Goode asked, and Hall told her he
was from headquarters. Halt sent for
a patrol wagon, nn unusual procedure
for taking one woman to the station
house, Mrs. Ooodo said, and while they
were waiting for It she saw Skelly
talking to one of the women down

Mrs. Gpode added.
Sho was taken to the West 100th

tho Sixty-eighth street station, where
thero was a matron, but only reached
tho latter after a long and circuitous

Skelly was waiting for Wolf and her

She went back to the 103th street house
to get her mall one day and met Police

He told her, she says, that ho was a
good fellow If he was treated right, but
that somebody was collecting for the
Inspector and threatened to have her
sent away for thirty days.
Mrs. Goode s.'is she went to Wolf
and said that she hud been Jobbed am!

about It. About this time Mr. Rucknef

She salil she saw the Inspector In
church two weeks ago.
Mr', Goode and a number of other
women folowlng the same business, she
said, met recently and decided to ask
the aid of Mrs. o. H. P Helmont. Mrs.
Goode wrote the letter icklng for nn ap
pointment In the name of a Mrs. I "ai

ask Mrs. Helmont to help them because
they couldn't look 'o the police for any

The woman said that Mrs. Palmer

says, told her that If no complaints were
received against the houses they would

Inspector Dwyer, she said, had closed
the big, noticeable resorts w ith' a flourish,
but many others were allowed to run.
"Tho Hecker pockctbook bus got the

revelations of the ltosenthnl case the

Mrs. Goode had mentioned the "trust"
several times. She explained that men
who conduct the same business on the
J'.'ast Side are moving uptown and that
they aro known as the "trust." Sho ad
mitted that she was not friendly with
members of this "trust." An effort had
been made, she said, to have her take
one of them In partnership, but she had

Uot Most of (Jen. Sickles's
Attorney-General Carmody said In
Albany yesterday that he was opposed
to granting any further time to Gen.

promise to straighten out the accounts
of the New York Monuments Commis
sion. Purthermore, the Attorney-General

This action comes as a distinct sur
prise to the members of the comtnlsilon.
They made known for the Drst l.ltne
esterday that Gen. Sickles lust .Monday
sent to State Comptroller William Soh
mer a trust deed of his J200,ntio eipiity
In the properly at Ninth street and
Fifth avenue, with an agrcment thnt If
he falleil to restoie J27.0U0 for which he
is unable to account by .1 titulary P, 1313,
the amount should ho paid from the
mile of the property after tho mortgages
had been paid. The members of the
commission supposed this would be suf
tlclent guarantee of settlement.
Attorney-General Carmody wild .
"Gen Sickles may bo icsponslhle to
the commission if he has failed to ac
count for any moneys Intrustrd to hint
as reported by the State Comptroller.
I Intend to Inform the members of the
commission at once of their responsibil

all the moneys unaccounted for.
"Gen. Sickles asked for nnd wns

further extension of time, but I ipn
iiKalnst granting this reipiest and will
now call upon the commission to give
the State an iircountlng. '
When this statement was reported
to Gen. Horatio C. King, who succeeded
Gen. Sickles hist Monday as chairman
of the Gettysburg Celebration Commis
sion, while Col. Lewis It. Stegman was
elected chuirman of the Monument Com
mission, which office was also held by
Gen. Sickles. Gen. King was highly

for Gen. Anson G. McCook, Ills, uncle;
Col. Lewis II. Stegman, C. A. Richard
son, Thomas W. Ilradley, Gen. Horatio
C King and Clinton Heckwlth, resident
members of tho monuments commls
blon, gave out a statement at 15 Will
iam street yesterday and a letter sent
by the commission to Comptroller
Sohmer on October 'JO giving In detail
the attitude of the commission toward
Gen Sickles since last June.
The letter says thnt until a meeting
on June 12 "none of us had the slightest
reason to believe that anything was
wrong with the finances, rne noons
were fully and carefully kept. Wo
placed Implicit confidence In the honor
and Integrity of our chairman, who
moreover was reported to be a man
of ample and even large means."
At this meeting the secretary's re
port showed that the total receipts of
the commission exceeded the disburse
ments by a little over J34.O00. The
commission had become disturbed by
newspaper reports that Gen. Sickles
was hard pressed financially nnd they
asked him at this meeting If tho sum
shown by the report was deposited to
his credit as chairman. He answered
that It was.
Shortly afterward It was ascertained
that all tho checks drawn for disburse
ments were signed "D, E. Sickles" and
not "D. K, Sickles, chairman." When
the General's attention xx'as called to
the discrepancy he replied thnt the
funds were Invested In bonds and other
"It was the time of all times," tho
letter says, "for Gen. Sickles to be per
fectly frank with his colleagues and
friends, but In the discussions he per
sistently asserted that everything was
all right, and that all he wanted was a
little time to arrange mutters satisfac
torily. Instead of being frank, It Is
seen by what follows that his assertions
were entirely without foundation."
On July 13th, Messrs. McCook, Steg
man nnd King asked the General to
conveno a special meeting on August 1
to discuss the matter of tho funds, but
he did nothing. During August and
September, he was Interviewed per
sonally by Commissioners Stegmnn and
King, but still he did nothing, Prom
September 11 to 13, William T. Boone,
an assistant auditor from the Comp
troller's office, examined the books, and
reported that there was a net balance
due from tho chairman of 32,fiC4.59,
none of which was found to the credit
of the commission. 1 letter from the
Comptroller to the commission followed
requesting an Immediate settlement.
Tho commission met September 27
and Gen. Sickles admitted that the
funds wero not at hund. He said, how
ever, "I am solely responsible," und he
described his property nt ICast Ninth
street and Klfth nvenue from which hu
expected to repay tho deficit, A letter,
saying that tho General pledged himself
to make a full settlement before October
15, 1012, whs upproved by him nnd
signed by tho commissioners, and sent
to the Comptroller.
At a special meeting held October II
Gen, Sickles proposed that the members
Join 111 a bond for $35,000 to a surety
company, with a view to satisfying the
Comptroller hy covering tho Indebted
ness. The commissioners refused to Join
In such n bond. On October 15, the day
set for the General's settlement, he ud
mltted to the commissioners that he
could not keep his obligation and he
suggested again that he bo bonded to
tho Comptroller, suggesting that It bo a
personal bond of himself and the other
commissioners. He represented then ,
that the equities In his real estate
amounted to $1GO,000, nnd further that '
the deficit had been reduced to $31,000. 1
The proposition was declined. i
A letter was sent to the Comptroller
stating that Gen, Sickles had not kept ;
faith. The letter leads In pnrt as fol
lows: To our amazement (en. Sickles stated
