IN REPLY TO MACKEY.
His Letter Only Puts Him in the Way of
Prosecution for BriberyInterviews
with Air. Connell and Detec
Dr. N. C. Mackey, member-elect from
the Thlid lcclshitlve distilct of this
eounty, jesterday published a letter
to the effect that William Connell had
laid down ceitaln conditions upon
which ho might escape arrest for bilb
ery. The alleged conditions were:
That he must abandon Wanamaker
and biippoit Pentose.
That he must bay ho took money to
That he must l of und the $1,250 which
ho leeehed thiough J. N. Tlllard fiom
the AVunamaker headquaiters.
Mr. Connell, when seen yesterday,
&ald; "The one item of tiuth in Dr.
Mackey'.s asseitlons is that I advised
him, for his own bake and for the bake
of his family, to letiiin the money. I
beem to have ein d In my deMie to ren
der it possible for him to ebcape ex
posuie. The couits will now have to
decide whither he or I Is the better
woithy of belief."
MR. BARRING TALKS.
Ex-Maishal Bailing yesterday said:
"When the Van Vnlkenbuig case was
tin own open, Mr. Connell eame to me,
knowing that Mackey was concerned,
and begged me to save the man, as
Mackey would be mined if bis connec
tion with hilbeiy would come out. I
demuiied and told him Mackey should
be tried and convicted. However, I
consulted over the wlie with one of our
clients and was told toiespect Mr. Cou
ncil's wishes in the matter and give
Mackey a chance, if possible.
'At my suggestion then, Mr. Connell
sent for him. At the interview be
tween Mr. Connell and Mackey I took
the piecautlon to have somebody pres
ent, unseen by Mackey, who oveiheaid
the conveisatlon. I Knew who was
handling Mackey and who would egg
him on to defy us. Mr. Connell made
no fui titer lequest of Mackey than to
stand by a foimer pledge and stay by
Quay's candidate. lie also advised
that ho ilmp the Wanamaker people
entliely and give up the money either
hand it to him (Mi. Connell) or place it
with the Bailing & McSweeney agency
and take a lecelpt It Is utteily un
true that Mi. Connell suggested to
Mackey to lie out of the case as best
ho could. Mackey will be ai tested and
we will prove him to be a bilbe taker
w ithout a doubt."
