.lames I'lunkett, publishers and book
brokers, all of Chicago, weio ni rested
yesterday nftcrnoon tn that city, and
William Beer, for many years head of
the Howard Memorial Library In New
Orleans, was arrested at New Orleans
about the snmo time, after the Federal
Grand .1 in y which has been Investigat
ing the do luxo book selling nctlvlfles
of the Anglo-American Authors' Asso
ciation had handed down six new In
dictment. The prlsonets are ch.irKed by the
Federal authorities with selling to H.
M Levlngston, a wealthy and enthu
iastlc collector and banker of Saratoga
Springs, for $t2,000 a so-called collec
tion of ery rure Americana, supposed
to be worth about a ipiartir of a million'
of dollars, which It Is charged, turned
out to Include old seed catalogues, dis
carded almanacs and agricultural, geo
logical and survey reports.
Besides the four men arrested yes
terday the new Indictments were
against (llcnn Farmer and William I',
Sherwood of Syracuse. Farmer had
been previously Indicted, as had his
father, .lames J. Farmer; Col. Bill Hart
ley and eight others. Mr. l.evlngston
has Invested, so It Is estimated, about
;i!5t),000 altogether In "editions de luxe"
and other Farmer book schemes.
The "William lleor Americana," which
the Federal Grand .lury had In mind
when handing down the Indictments
that resulted In yesterday's arrests, Is
not quite worth the JfiS.OOO paid for It
by Mr. Levlngston In the opinion of the
Federal Investigators. Assistant Fed
eral Attorney lloyle estimates the "col
lection" tu In; worth about twenty-five
cents u hundred pounds as old paper.
The technical charge upon which
Beer and tho Chicago men were ar
rested Msterday was using the malls to
defraud. Burns detectives and the dic
tagraph tlgured in obtaining evidence
against the Chicago men, and It was
paid that internal dissensions among the
alleged conspirators helped.

Mr. l.evlngston took I'lunkett to New
Orleans, whero they met Humes and
Librarian Beer. Tho Americana was
not iihown to Mr. Levlngston, but It
was described so enthusiastically to Jilni
that ho straightway paid 15,000 deposit
to bind tho purchase. The ofllccrs say
that on his return to New York ho took
Humes and I'lunkett to tho Corn Kx
cliange National Bank, cashed a check
for 157,000 nnd handed It over to them.
Next Levlngston was persuaded to
havo the collection catalogued. Ho paid
over another $1,000 for tho cataloguing.
The Indictment charges next that
'Levlngston was brought In touch with
William 1. Sherwood of Syracuse and
agreed to open up a book concern
with Sherwood at Saratoga Springs to

deal fell through.
In tho meantime Plunkett, It Is
charged, failed to live up to a promise
to sell tho alleged Americana. There
upon Glenn Farmer told Levlngston
he had a purchaser, a Mrs. Moorn of
Greensburg, Pa. The Indictment says
ho showed Mrs. Moore's personal note
for $150,000 an evidence, but demanded

picious and saw a lawyer.

Is charged, reappeared and told Lev

many years, would be with them no
Tho same feeling of sorrow prevailed
In tlie Democratic National Club and In
Tiimmany's ranks from Charles F, Mur

follower when It became known that
upon application yesterday In Part II.,
Special Term of the Supreme Court,
made on the petition of relatives, a step
brother and stepsister. Justice Amend
signed an order committing Represen
tative Sullivan to Dr. G. F. M. Bond's
sanitarium at 960 North Broadway,
Yonkers. Hitherto Representative
Sullivan has been a voluntary patient
at Dr. Bond's establishment. Thn
disease from which he Is suffering, how-
ovf.ri ,hns tRkpn Mlcn ,tr)(, wtnln the
l.vt few weeks rhat It became neces
sary for his stepbrother and the step

hilo Hepresentatlve Sullivan ha
been a docile and resigned patient he
has become a victim of marked
hallucinations which indicated that tn
the near future It would be necessary
iHom,i nffulrs he will without doubt ba
removed, perhaps to Amltyvllle. where
Maurice Barrymore and John McCill
lough, the famous actors, died a number
of years ago. Representative Sullivan
Is suffering from the same malady
which brought to an untimely end these'
two famous members of the theatrical
I'nlltlenl Friend Informed.
With these court proceedings known
to Hepresentatlve Sullivan's constitu
ents nnd to his friends In the Demo
cratic Natlonnl Club and to Charles F.
Murphy and others In Tammany Hall
all wero aware that Representative Bul
llvan had departed from the affairs of
this life and would no more be seen by
them until after his death.
Gov. Sulrer In due course of time will
direct a special election for a Congress
man to succeed Mr. Sullivan In the
Thirteenth district. Physically Repre
sentative Sullivan Is to-day the glgantlo.
figure familiar to all Now Yorkers and
to all Democrats who have attended the
State and national conventions of their
party. He standa over 6 feet In height
weighs In the neighborhood of two hun
dred pounds and has the same round
cherubic, very smooth face, a typical
Hibernian nose and ns big and round e
pair of baby blue eyes as were ever
seen; a round well developed head set
on a pair of massive shouldors, with a
seventeen Inch neck Joining them.
