FIVE $1 ,000 BILLS FOUND IN
I'aslor of Our Lndv of Hope
Doesn't Know Who
Somebody put five J1.0U0 bills Into
the poor box of the new Spanish Catho
lic Church of Our I.udy of Hope, In
West 13Sth street, on Wednesday of
last week. No card was attached.
After ten days of Inquiry the pastor of
the church does not know the nainu of
the giver. He thinks he never will,
Archerj.M. Huntington gave the site
of the church and 150,000 of the build
ing fund. King Alfonso sent a silver
lamp with thre cherub figures beneath
the Spanish crown, and a ruby light
which swings on a chain from the cell
ing before the alter. With the lamps
came a painting from Joaquin So
rolla y Bastlda. The altar Itself was n
gift from Mr. and Mrs. Frederic C.
Kvery day since the dedication the
pastor, Father Adrian Bulsson, has been
unlocking his church door with n
Jewelled key. Kvery day he was" disap
pointed not to find more money In tho
poor box. It perplexed him that those
who came to mass and to hear the
sermon on Sunday should not be more
generous for charity. He felt that as
Christmas drew near the little box
would receive more attention.
I'p to Wednesday of last week there
had never been more than $l..i3 In the
box. When Father Bulsson found the
i,000 It took his breath. '
"Who gave It? Who could have given
it? I do not know." Father Bulsson
said last night. "Did you? No? Then
how did you hear about It?"
The $5,000 could be used In a great
many ways, the priest said; the church
Itself was very poor.
At F. C. I'enfleld's home it was said
that Mr. and Mrs. l'enfield had heard
about the gift becnuso of inquiry that
had been made, but neither knew who
the giver was.
"Conscience money, perhaps." sug

Livingston's arrext wax preceded a
month ago by the airest of two men
charged with being hi accomplices.
They have been In the Tomb since and
they gave to Assistant District Attor
ney George 'A. Medalle the Information
that led to thi; unvM of Lhlngxton
Their numes are wlthheM for the pres
ent. The stories they tell of I.UIngston
Implicate him In a series of forgeries
all the way from Baltimore to Montreal
The cleverness with which the swind
ler worked with his accomplices and
his dupes has been most puzzling lo
those o'n the case. Mr. Medalle says
Livingston spared no expense or labor
In preparing the ground for the for
geries. According to the affidavits of
the men in the Tomb the first step
was to secure thloiigh their connivance
a genuine cheek made out by u business
house and the second step was to obtain
through a forged order u check book
from the bank where the concern had
an account. The forgery with which
Livingston Is specifically charged Is a
fair example of the roundabout manner
In which he Is supposed to have carried I
out his schemes. j
The men In the Tombs say thai Liv
ingston, under the name nf John Hein
berg, opened an office In Trenton, N. J.,
and from there sent certain woollen
goods to the auction firm of Wllmer
dlng, Morris & Mitchell of 374 Broadway,
to bo sold. The goods were sold and Liv
ingston got n check for SO at an upper
Broadway address where he hud ar
ranged to receive mail. He then had the
signature of the firm of Wllnierdlng,
Morris & Mitchell, as well as their
Tho next step, nccordlng to the In
formants, was to get a check book from
the bank, In this case th Bank of the
Manhattan Company. They say that
Livingston had printed In a small
Brooklyn printing shop fifty order slips
that read "Order Slip. Please deliver to
. . Wllnierdlng. Morris & Mitch
ell." In the blank spaces were In
serted, according to the story, "the
bearer" and "one largo check book,"
and nn Initial was signed under the
firm's name. The order slip was given to
an accomplice, who In turn got a boy to
take It to tile bank.
The trick would probably have
worked had not It been the custom
of the Wllmcrdlng concern to have their
check books made specially for them,
and also had it not been for the fact
Hint the Bank of the Manhattan Com-
puny had been swindled once before In
a similar way. A fake package was tied
up by the bank officials, given to the
boy and then traced, as the story goes,
to the office of Llvligston. This was on
November 11. Livingston was out at

WiriHiMiTo.v, Dec. 13. Counsel for
l he PuJo Investigating committee threw
out lu the course of the day's hearinr
fliese three suggestions of reform for
the New Vork Stock Exchange: "
Tljat memliers of the big board bm
prohibited from executing orders for
lmpurtant operators like James TV.
Keene. who are known to have ma
nipulated the market.
That the New Vork Stock Exchange
prohibit short sales of stock.
That the exchange compel the actual
delivery of stock at the New York
exchange clearing house.
Members of the committee seemed to'
be under the impression that it would
lie as feasible for the sfock Exchange;
to pi event Us members from doing busi
ness for manipulators like Kecne as it
Is to apply the regulation against any
tiicmlier executing orders for a member
of the Consolidated Exchange.
Also the committee's counsel appar
ently believes that the enforced presenta
tion of stock certificates at the clearing;
house would materially reduce specula
rum, All of these suggestions were

taken up with the consideration of the
ethics of the short sale. Frank K.
Stuigls and Itudulph Kepplfr, both
fni nice presidents of tile exchange and
now memliers of' the board of gov
ernors, gave llielr views on so-called
manipulation In lite stock market and
defended the methods and practices on
tlie "uig Isiurd."
Mr. Sturgls could Imagine circum
stances under which It was perfectly
Justifiable lo go short of the murker,
but be bad never in Ills life sold a
xhaip in this way for himself and he
did not approve of the practice when
the market was in normal condition.

He acknowledged that It was largely
a "gumble," but admitted that the New

Mr. Keppler thought that manlpula-
! Hon was legitimate when the rules ot

The lest of reason that he would ap
ply seemed to depend on the wealth of
the manipulator and the length of his
The committee In the course of the
day tried to obtain from Harry Content,
who ha? the reputation of executing
the biggest orders on the Stiect and of
representing some of the most Impor
tant traders, how thn feat of nrtlflchlly .
raising nnd depressing price levels was
accomplished. Mr Content smiled and
shook his head. Ho knew very little
about such things and that little chiefly
from henrsny. He bad not represented
any syndicate or pool In such tranrac
tlon. although he may have bought and
sold stocks for a house that was manag
ing a pool. But anyway a pool Is an
old fashioned Idea now, according to
Harry Content. .
"Now," said he, "each man is a pool
In other words, as Mr. Content vlejva
the situation, big operators have learned
from bitter experience that It Is safer to
do their own manipulating than to go
Into partnership with others. Human
nature Is weak and tho partners seemed t
frequently to yield to temptation and
Thinks I'utillr Is Benefited.
In Mr. Content's opinion also the pub
lic Is benefited by speculation In stocks.
He Is In favor of marginal transaction.
"I like it myself," was his comment
on this class ot transactions.
"Do you know what Is meant by ma
nipulation of stocks?" asked Mr. L'nter
myer of Mr. Content, with a smile,
"I know how the term Is used," re
plied the broker.
'You know how the thing Is done,
"I may guess a lot,' said the witness.
Mr. Content finally ssld that It was
done differently In different cases.
"I do not know of two similar ones."
