which some of the rnllroml companies
had made rcmonstraneeft and .John
Keatlnu's place nl No. TOO Washington
street. Nothing was ndvnnced by the
remonstrants against the chnracter of
the resorts In question, nmt for that rea
son llceiics were gi anted. The county
court hail also previously pawed on the
matter of granting licenses to the same
applicants antl had decided In most of
the cases for the applicants. Serious
charges were made In wilting by Miss
Laura 13. White, of Klgth and Wood
land avenue, n gainst Sergeant McVeigh,
nmt the board decided In have a formal
Investigation of the charges at Its meet
ing next Wednesday. Patrolman M. V..
Ityan, who was charged with Insubordi
nation and conduct unbecoming an olll
cer, because he refused to null smoking
at the direction of Chief Speers riming
a meeting of the Police Itellcf Associa
tion, was repilmanrieri nnd reinstated.
Hn had been suspended and off duty
since .Tnnunry. .laller Small's resigna
tion was accepted.
.V lengthy communication, signed by
Miss Laura 13. White, of the Y. W. C. A.
building, referring to alleged ungentle
manly conduct on tin part of Police
Sergeant McVeigh, was rend to the
board by Secretary Meflpe. It was
charged by Miss White that McVeigh
had met her on the street and had In
vited her to accompany him to a wine
room. She stated that she had entered
n drug store to telephone to a transfer
company regal ding the removal of her
trunk from the depot, and that a police
olllcer said he would telephone for her.
This policeman, she said, railed up some
one by telephone and said that he was
Sergeant McVeigh. After talking for a
time over the telephone he turned to her
nnd said the charge for removing the
trunk would bo 7S cents. Thinking this
too high. Miss White left the drug store,
she says, without giving an order for
the removal of the trunk. She had gone
about half a block when she was ac
costed by the policeman, who began to
ask her various questions concerning
herself. Among other things he nskeri
her If she was not a stranger In the
cltv and whether she hari any relatives
living here. She answered that she was
a stranger and had no relatives here,
and, nceordlng to her account. McVeigh
then said that he would assist her in
seeing nbout her baggage. Klrst, how
ever, he wanted her to go with him and
have a glass of wine. "It will do you no
harm," ho is reported as having said to
"I told him," said Hiss White In her
communication, "that I never drank
wine and hurried away from him. When
I looked about after a time be was no
wheie to be seen."
"What shall we do with the communi
cation?" Inquired the mayor.
"Wo ought to do something with the
ofllcer," lemaiked Commissioner Fyke,
"if the complaint ngalnst him is true."
The matter was laid over for investi
gation at next Wednesday's meeting.
The saloon licenses granted yesterday
were as follows: John Keating, No. TOO
Wasldngton street; John I'orsberg, No.

Oeneseo street. Licenses were refused
to the following: Samuel Iluben, No.
1001 Kast Fifth street, and Laurence
Coirtlllo, No. 1013 Kast Fifth street
Quite a tight was made before the
board against the rellcenslng of John
Ashley's saloon at No. 1303 Union ave
nue and several witnesses were heard
for and ngalnst It. It was shown by the
evidence that the saloon was really con
ducted by a Mrs. Ashley, who duiing a
great part of the time acted as night
bartender at the resort. Two small
boys testified that they had bought
drinks at the place, although under age,
hut Mrs. Ashley triumphantly intro
duced the evidence of their mother, who
testified that she didn't caie if the boys
did get drinks at the place. Policeman
Marksbury was called to the stand, and
he testified that lie had seen Mis. Ash
ley tending bar at the resort and that
he had seen the place open on Sunday
but had taken no action In the matter.
The boairi reserved a decision until its

after rome additional evidence Is obtained,
a. number of persons who participated In
the frauds and who lime thus far escaped
will Mud themselves under Indictment. It

of votns will llnd thenisetxes Indicted for
that crime before the grand Jury llnMies
Its labors. There Is considerable evident e
In tlv possession of the authorities In re

Hie forgeries of the tubulated sheets and
the Judges' returns had not been pene
trated. In order to commit the forgeries It

Several other circumstances me known to

three men ns the perpetrators of the fraud,
one of whom was In the employ of Owsliv
It 1 believed that he opened the vault and
that the other two men did the rest.
It is sold that there are not to exceed five
