HpcrlTrd III Per Cent, of ;rft.
Vox went to the Criminal Courts
HulldlnR about 4 o'clock yesterday af
ternoon with Louis J Grant, his coun
sel. Mr. Whitman met them there and
led the way up town, where they would
not be disturbed,
It Is not expected that Fox will be
represented by counsel when lie Roes
before the District Attorney this after
noon. He has now placed himself un
reservedly In the hands of Mr. Whit
man, even to admit tint.', and thereby
contrndlctlnR his own story of Mon
day, that he himself had profited by
his collection to the amount of 10 per
cent, of the total amount hp collected.
Fox lieRun his story yesterday with
his tlrst days In the Kast l"ilth street
police stutlon. N'ot lonK after he was
tiF'ljnied to the precinct, he said, file
captain In command called n, number of
the precinct pntrolmen before him nnd
asked them who would be willing to
Ito out In plain clothes and arrest
women on the streets, and Hum help
to clean up the dl'trlrt
Fm (lnl Volnnleer.
Ko was the only man who volun
teered, he said yesterday. He went tn
work In plain clothes nnd made a num
ber of arrests, of street women.
Two or three week-) after he becan
on this detail, he told the District At
torney, the captain sent for him and
said that lie wanted a man to ro around
and talk with the inixuaRers nf lintel-.
Fox- said he asked what the captain
meant and that the latter explained that
so lonR as these places were conducted
In an orderly munner they were allowed
to run, but that "we are not In busi
ness for our health '
Kox- told Mr. Whitman that the cap
tiiln Rave him a list of some fifteen r
elKhteen hotels, and aiither list of
saloons which he was tn visit. Fox's
work In till connection, which ho un
derstood to be that of a collecter, was
ciircumscrlbed by these lists, he said,
and he wan not supposed to visit any
pluces not mentioned on them He says
he understood that other policemen In
the same section wete doliiR similar
work In connection with other places.
I.'nlleelril I.4II a Vlnnlli.
DurlnK this eaily period of his work
as a collector, Fox told the District At
torney that lie Rathered around $1,400
to $1,:00 a month, of which he retained
10 per cent, and that he passed the rest
on to the captain.
The hotels from which l-'ox- collected
paid him, he sav.. from $."u to $100
monthly apiece: the saloons fiom which
he collected excise Rraft paid a tl.it rate
of I :.'." each a month
Fox says he beRan tills i ollectltlR for
the captain live years iiro. Three years
.iro, he told the District Attorney, lie
was ordered to stop collectliiR excise
protection and ndded that he under
stood this money was to ro thereafter
to Police llead(iuirters. The removal
of excise Rraft from his collections n
iluced the monthlv amount to about
1,000
Continued fler Iln n tee.
Two years iiro Fox was transferred
to tnn West le'-'d street sbiton to do
patrol duty In uniform. When tho
order came for the transfer, Fu said,
his former captain told him that ho
wnnted him to continue vIsIHur tho
hotels, If lie wus vvilllliR to do It. Fox
then soiiKlit to Ret the captain to talse
hli commission to 5,1 per cent., explain.
I n K that he would now have to do Hi"
work on his off time nnd would have to
come down from the West l.ljil street
station to do It. The captain, Fox said,
flatly refused to make any Increase, and
Fox nKreed to continue at the existing
rate, All the time while he vran col
leotiiiK In Harlem, l-'ox said, even on
Ills first visits to the hotels and other
placcH, little wan ever said. He merely
found the name of a place on his list,
weul to that place uud somebody
hatnled lilm the money without ques
tion, lie Judged from this that Homo

There is nothing surprisinj
in the fuel thut woure ttowerti

On the contrary, only the
reverse of this fact could he .t
matter for sui prise, in view
of the tremendous advantages
which this Company offers and

It would be a reflection on

of Owners to suppose that, in

overlook an organization which

for the economy, quality and
