Within a few minutes Inspector Dwyer
and Capt. Hart entered the restaurant.
They went to every table and explained
quietly that everybody must be out. That
warning was disregarded and In a few
minutes the riot wns well under way.
Mr. Healy made a move yesterday after
noon by which ho hopes tQ teat the law
under which the police claim authority to
close his restaurant at l A. M, even after
the bar has been locked. Mr. Hoaly's at

to have the Justices of Special Sessions
Issue warrants for the arrest of the police
who besieged Mr. Healy's place yesterday
morning, presented nn affidavit to Magis
trate Deuel In the West Side court. It
was signed by George Josephle, one of the
diners who were detained In Healy's until
6 o'clock yesterday morning by the singe
of the police. On the strength of the affi
davit the lawyer asked for the arrest of
acting Captain Hart of the West Sixty

Kdward Hayes for oppression.
The Magistrate .Issued summonses for
both Capt. Hart and Lieut. Hayes. The
summons was served on Capt. Hart, but
Lieut. Hayes had gone away on his vaca

At that time nt least a dozen witnesses

Healy's after 1 o'clock yesterday morning
when the police appeared nnd ordered him
to leave, threatening to remove him forci

surrounded the place, he says, and pre

Tho various moves which the police
have made against Healy's aroused the
wrath of Justice Keller of Special Ses

favor of Mr. Healy on Friday.
"The condition of New York Is dis

Itcport That fiaynor Is Con

tlpntly for Anolher Term.
Ill th cool of tho evonlnc of the second
day of relief after many weeks of bent n
liroiiiiecy enmo from Tammany Hall last
nlsht that Mayor Ciaynor cannot cet
the Tammany nomination for Mnvor bv
iny means short of a cataclysm. At tho
same tlmn It wns said that the Mayor was
thinking of acceptlnK nn Independent
nomination from the many associations 1
which have come out for his candidacy.
Charles K. Murphy does not deny the
Mayor's strcnKth. Whenever his name
In spoken Mr. .Murphy's comment Is. '
"Ktronir, stroriRl" Hut the secret of tho
matter Is that the Tammany district lend
ers don't want tho Mayor. They ask one '
another every time his name Is mentioned. .
"What has he done for us?" The answer I
they give themselves Is that the Mayor I
has done very little.
Ills major appointments, especially his
more recent one, have gone to anybody
but Tammany men. He has let many,
little Jobs slip Into the hands of the or
ganization, but they are not the ones that
make the biggest nole, and neither are
there enough of them to keep tho maw of
the organization satisfied.
The man upon whom the Tammany
Ieadeis have net their eyes Is Victor .1.
Howling, JusUcp of tho Supreme Court.
Mr. Duwilng has been at th head of tho
list of possible nominees ever since last
winter. .HiPtlce Dowllng has n clean record
on the liench nnd at the same time he Is
popular with the rank and Ille In tho or
ganization. (in nor Not Second Choice.
The choice does not lie between Justice
Howling and Major daynor in case the
complexion of the situation changes. If
the Tammany leaders on closer scrutiny
of th" fusion ticket feel they need n man
better known than Justice Howling to the
lank and tile of the voters they will look
elsewhere than to the Mayor. The only
situation in which th'j organization will
name Mr. ilnynor, It wns said with every
indication of authority, would lie one of
ocrw In lining demand for his nomination. ,
In that case the Mayor's name would
have to be pressed on the district leaders
with nil the power that Charles I,
.Murphy and his adherents possess. The
support or his candidacy would have to
be mad" a matter of party loyalty.
As an offset to the opposition which the
M.ior excites among the Tammany rank
ami file one of the lenders said yester-
il.iy that the war chest which he could
bring Into the i-ampalgn would surpass
that of any other candidate. He said
that the friends of the Mayor were so
anxious to see him elected again that they
would contribute n fund which would run
as high perahps as Jl.000,000.
