MONEY EXHAUSTED AT AGE
OUTLIVES HIS CALCULATIONS
Ones Wealthy Wall street Man
Applies to New York Commit*
■loner of Charities for
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, Aug. 19.— Wearing
patent leather shoes, a slightly frayed
frock coat and a high hat which vmi -a
bit rusty, J. T. Rapelee, a ' retired
broker, 82 years of age, applied yester
day to the commissioner of charities In
New Rochelle for commitment to ths
almshouse. Struck by the unusual air
of dignity and refinement, the commis
sioner asked the aged applicant to tell
hla story. : : . : . ■ :.', . . . . :
"You really don't mean that you want
to go to the poor house?" the commis
sioner queried. '
"Yes, sir; I most emphatically do.' I
want to keep my self respect and do
not wish to be dependent on "relatives
or friends. As ' I have paid taxes all
my life I think that riow.'when I have
no more money,' lt Is the duty' of the
community to care for me."
Asked how he came to lose his money,
Rapelee said he 'formerly' had been at
the head of a brokerage ' house In this
city, made a comfortable fortune and
retired. For a' time he llv«d at the best
hotels but gradually encroached on Ms
capital and 'slowly receded to cheaper
quarters. The Income from his funds
was insufficient even then and during
the past fifteen years his capital slowly
dwindled until yesterday only' 7 cents
remained. . •_
When he figured years ago on always
being In good eircumsta.nces,' Rapelee
said he never dreamed of living to pass
the fourscore mark," so that his calcu
lations went far amiss. For two months
he had been living in' a boarding house
In New Rochelle, but yesterday, he was
told he would have to move as he was
a week behind in his rent.' .' " ,'.
Commissioner Sharpe said he would
commit the man to the alms house,
temporarily at least. ' , ...,
"May I get .my trunk?" Rapelee
asked. '-' .'
He was given permission, and for the
first time in the! history of the West
chester alms house it, received an.in
mate who came with a trunk.' .' , >

FRANCIS MURPHY HAS
REGAINED HIS HEALTH
Noted Apostle of Temperance Recov.

Ing Many Weeks
Murphy, the great apostle of
temperance, has regained his health.
Yesterday Mr. Murphy went down town
for the flrs.t time since he was taken ill
many weeks ago. • His cordial hand
shake and cheery smile were welcomed
by many of Mr. Murphy's friends. "I
am feeling fine," said the temperance
rrirfn. . I expect to take up my work
again curly In October. My friends
have all' been good to me during my
Illness and I want to thank them."

houncement of the details of the cam
paign until Sunday. One of the de
tails of the plan will, 'lt is understood,
be an inspection, not only of every
house, but of every room In the city.
In connection with this work Dr.
White took occasion- today to' say -that
he had less Interference from poli
ticians in New Orleans than he had
ever met with before. •
One of the curious incidents of the
day was an incipient strike- of the
employes of the citizens' sanitary de
; partment It occurred in the Thir
teenth ward. Heretofore there have
been as many men applying for jobs
as could be taken care of. They were
glad tonvork for $1.50 a day. The Thir
teenth ward force, however, believed
it was entitled to a raise. They
struck for $2. The citizens' committee
refused to pay more and a new force

The city council at its meeting today
authorized Mayor :Behrman to borrow
$60,000 from the financial agents to as

Ten thousand dollars is to be used in
carrying out the street cleaning work,
In which the city is engaged, and the
150,000 is to go to the fund asked for
by the government. Though not quite
$250,000 has been raised, all the money
Is available that can be used by Dr.
White and his force for six weeks.

convention of the Catholic Abstinence

In fact, the entire trip through New
Jersey and Pennsylvania to this city
was ji series of ovations. Every sta
tion along the line from Jersey City
was decorated with flags and bunting,
and the crowds at the stations cheered
the president heartily. But his great
est ovation was In the Wyoming val
ley, where he spent four very busy
hours. The entire valley took on a
holiday aspect. Mr. Roosevelt was In
great humor and enjoyed the day as
much as the most enthusiastic total
abstainer or mine worker.
Wllkesbarre was dressed for the oc
casion. There was scarcely a build
ing In the business portion of the city
or a house along the route over which
the president drove that did not dis
play the national colors. The greatest
crowd that the city ever had within its
confines was present, and it is esti
mated that the visitors numbered up
ward of 200,000.
The president arrived at 3 o'clock
and was driven directly to the speak
ers' stand on the common. Besides the
president those who spoke were Car
dinal Gibbons, 'Mayor Kirkendale of
this city, John Mitchell, president of
the mine workers, and Father Curran.
After the exercises on the river com
mon had ended the president was
driven about • the city and then to
Plttston, about eleven miles north ot
here, where he boarded his special
train and left for Chautauqua at 7:20
On the trip from Jersey City to this
city only a few stops were made, at

AS HAMMEL'S SUCCESSOR
POLITICIANS DIBCUSS NAMEB OF
Detective Paul Flammer, Sergeant
Craig and Former Chief Glass Are
Mentioned aa Possible Candidates
for Appointment by tho Mayor
Just now the water and library ques
tions are sidetracked at the city hall
by speculation as to the choice of the
police commission and the mayor for a
successor to Chief of Police Hammel.
This question takes precedence over
all others In discussions by politicians
and city officials. Said one of the for
"The people will expect and demand
a first class, metropolitan police de
partment. Chief Hammel has paved
the way and educated the people to the
necessity of a standard in police pro
tection which must not be lowered, to
say the least!
"Whosoever' succeeds Chief Hammel
has his work cut out for him. He will
find the department in better condition
than it has been at any other period- in
its' history." "
Numerous names are mentioned in
connection with the appointment. In
cluding Detective Paul Flammer, Sergt.
Craig and former Chief John Glass.
Politicians are unable to figure Just
who, if any one of the three men who
are being mentioned as probable re
cipients of the mantle, will be the
favored one in the selection to be made
by the mayor and commission.
Until yesterday there was but one
name before the public, Detective
Flammer, but his uncertain Statement
regarding the probabilities of accept
ance in the event the appointment was
tendered him . caused the "wise . ones"
to look around for other probabilities.
This occasioned the impromptu booms
of Sergt. Craig and former Chief Glass.
It may be added that none of the
three has received any astounding
votes In the popularity contest, and
other names may be entered before the
close of the week. "• . .'

ground that Dunlap had not finished

to pay Dunlap If he would get an order
from Mr. Lambert's superintendent,
