HALF CENTURY OF CRIME
Arrest of a Seventy-threa-Year-Old
Crook at Philadelphia.
Ctmuncy Johnson, Whom Inspector
Ilyrne-K CuiiKldered tlie Shrewdest
Criminal Alle, Again Xubbed.
Philadelphia, Oct. B. Chauncy Jolinson,
eged seventy-three years, a crook whose
professional eiirver extends as far back as
18D2, coerlng an unbroken record of the
most daring and craftiest of crimes, was
yesterday aftc riioon arrested by Detectives
Hanim and Eckstein Ji.st as lie was entering
Uie elevator of tlieConUnuntalllotel.
The two detectives were Just on their
way out when their gaze fell upon the well
known form of the old-time crook.
"You know that man," said Ilanini,
poInUug, and Eckstein nodded. A moan nt
later the c-elcbratc-d crook wasm cJslndy,
and the nrrmt for the time being created
no little consternation til the lobby or the
Johuon, in years golf by, was known
as one of Uie most daring criminals m
the buslines. Supt. Hj rues, who made a
study of soma of the crooks' Jobs, mentioned
liim especially In his Iwok on Crimes," and
designates him as the cleverest thief on
record. "Individuull," said Uie great
police superintendent once In telling of
Johnson, 'Uiis man has stolen more money
than any other who has ever come to luy
notlcc." Asa matter of fait, if Johusoii's
stealings were counted they would aggre
gate something like $300,000.
In 1852 he began operations with a Job
that landed him in Sing Sing for five years.
Nothing daunt ed, he followed this up alter
he had done time with a Job an the New
Eugland Dank, carrying uwuy wiUi him
530,000. This amount was recovered
afterward, and Johnson was also caught,
and again sent up for five years. The big
crook then changed his seat of operations,
and came to thlscity, where he made a dar
ing attempt to steal a pile or SCO bills
from the paying teller's window of a big
:nnk. He served three years for thlft and
iftir doing his time went back to New
York. There he robbed August Belmont of
Uls biggest Job, and the one that Is
spoken of as the most adroit ever perpe
tuus! by a crook, Is one that the aulhorl-tli-s
co'ild never fasten upon him. John
son, it is said, watched theJIarPieNnlInn.il
Hank of New York and studied the habits,
dress, and hours of one of the clerks.
Copying him closely, he walkediintn the
bank one day earlier (than the clerk's
usual hour, put on a Un.cn duster, stuck
a pen behind his ear, and walked mei to
thesafe as naturally asllfe. Noone heeded
him. bi lieu 1 he all the while It was the other
clerk. That was a big haul, and Johnson
got out Ix fore the other clerk appeared.
With Henry Newmann. "the Dutch Hen
Iric," he robbed the Central National
Bank of New York of $125,000, and was
lever convicted ofthls offense.
In the 70's he was caught stealing val
nable packages at the Fifth Avenue Ho
tel, New York, and sentenced to ten years.
From that on Johnson degraded, and de
scended to the level of a common pick
pocket; Tohnson's last Job whs the attempt on
the German National Bank of Newark,
for which he was sent up. In August, 1894,
for a year. He had Just been released.

The vart turade ground, gray with dust
and jellow with runburnt turf, looked like
a field of Mars, clamorous with dashing
riders, musical with the bray of brass, the
boom ot sheciwkln, the beat of hoof, the
orders Jit command and the clangor of
caber find blossoming with nodding plumes
and Jttering flags.
The tun shone into the field with all
the luster and much of the v Igor of summer
noon and a fitful weet wind swept across
the plain, whispering to the trees of Arling

ing, eddying flashes ot Virginia dust. Over
the tree tops, red with autumn's blushes, rose
the'doines und spires ot Washington. Here

a flood of rippling, liquid rilver. Through
the cemetery foliage, the gold dome ot the

granite. Notaruggestlonotcioud veiled the
dazzling blue of the great concave.
The day was in sympathy with Uie event.

wire fence marking the eastern boundary
of the field. Scores or vehicles were halted

Two companies, on horses of orthodox
gray, stood facing the entrance from the
garrison. At the guardhouse, a good way
orr, bugles were singing their siguul songs,
and the merry Jingle ot "boots and saddles"
came faintly to the eople at the paradn
ground. Soon following Was the gay and
catchy call, "assembly."
Daring all this the itost was boisterous
with the dlu of preparation. Hoarse shouts
would come from the region or the stables
to the ears of the guests. The first to
enter the field was the mounted regimental
nand on steed.-' of night, headed by Leader
Lutzinger. Thr is said to be the best
cavalry band in the army. It moved at an
easy walk across the field away down
to the south, took iiositloii nt the extreme

the horses were off. The fronts were-cx-celtent
with the possible except! in of
the second platoon of A: the alignment
was pcrrect, the fronts being well pre

up Irom the clattering hoofs of the trotting
steeds. At dress parade a gallop usually
follows a trot, but a short, sharp rote or
the bugle sang "halt." and a long mono
tone blast said "walk." "Troops left
'rout into line, trot," and "Close in on

The men passed In review in battalion

estimate is made by measurement of the
capacity of each or the Torce pumps for

the quantity delhered each minute Is
found by multiplication.

office, has been named as the man who
has obtained iuterest on deposits of city
money made by him in the name of City
Attorney W. C. Moreland.
Rol'crt Wardmp, cashier of Ihe Trades

visited the banks where Major More
land's accounts have been kept. These
were the First National, Allegheny Na

Freehold. The committee consisted of
Mr. Bigbnni. Mr. Warmcnstle, and Con
troller Gourley. The officials of the
First National and of the Allegheny Na

without authority from M,r. Moreland.
Those ot the two other batiks, however,
gave all the information in their power.
Mr. Wardrop, ot the Tradesmen'sNaUonal

Columbia, S. C, Oct. 5. Nearly all the
delegates have gone to their homesvthero

Senator Tillman, when asked at the depot
for a statement of his views as to the work
of the convention thus far and as to the
"The body has evinced a determination
to" closely examine and scrutinize and
thoroughly analyze every meaeure pre
sented, and to do nothing hastily, and
therefore I am catlsfled that the constitu
tion it will make will be a durable instru
"The convention has risen above fac
tional feeling altogether. The one pre
dominant idea seems to be the future wel
fare ot the people of the State, and whatever
the conveuilon does will be well done.
I could not pretend to go into detail. I
can only give. It as my opinion that in thu
future we will have better common cchools
and absolute purity and fairness In elec
tions." Ex-Congressman George D. Tillman said
that the convention reminded lilmmorc of a
debating society of overgrown school boys
thou anything else, talklngallUie time and
undoing to-morrow what they do to-day. He
did not cure to talk about It much.
He said that as faras that proviso saying
"any negro blood" was concerned. It would
be an absolute necessity to change that
and make It "one-eighth part negro blood"
or havoc would be played wlWi property in
South Carolina. He says he will bring this
matter up on the third reading.
Speaking of woman's suffrage, he said,
with a wise shake of his head, that Uiere
were many more advocates of woman's
suffrage on Uie floor of the convention tliau
any ono dreamed of, and the adoption of a
woman's suffrage plank, placed on a property-qualification,
was notsuchan impossible
thing as It Is generally conceded tobe.
As to Ihe article of the suffrage com
mittee, be raid that the plan could not
honestly accomplish lhe desired result.
It was far from geltlrg at the disfranchise
ment oT the negroes by honest and fair
A plan that has occurred to him to do
away with two-thirds of the negro vote
without refusing Uie ballot box to any
negro complying with the honest require
ment, is to take advantage or the migratory
habits of the negro. By having township
managers and boards and requiring a voter
tolive In the rame township fortwo years
to be eligible, two-thirds or the negroes
would be disfranchised honestly, and no
white man would te hurt, for the white
people are chained to the land.
