New York Sun : Elegantly dressed, but
in deep mourning, a woman who was
ushered into the detectives' room in the
police central office, a few days ago, aroused
the interest of Inspector Byrnes. It was
sofln disclosed that she had double occa
sion for grief. Her story was an illustration
of a phase of crime in the city that
has become well known to the police. She
is a member of one of the wealthiest families
in the city, and lives near the Windsor
Hotel. After the funeral of a relative, recently,
it was learned that the family had
been extensively' victimized by thieves,
who had not only picked the pockets of
some of the persons who attended the
funeral, but had carried off a number of
valued articles from the mantel-pieces,
center tables, and even the sleeping-rooms
of the house. As one loss after another
was developed, and the relatives who were
present spoke of incidents of the funeral,
it soon became apparent that there were
strangers at the funeral, on whom suspicion
might naturally rest. Each inmate
of the house had supposed that some of
the other inmates knew the strangers.
It is such a common occurrence for long-forgotten
friends to turn up at a funeral,
that little notice was taken of the strangers
who pervaded the house with doleful
faces and profuse sympathy.
Funeral thieves" are generally expert
pick-pockets in middle life. They dress
sedately, and have a general air of solemnity
befitting the mournful occasion in
which they act. One of the most expert
ever known in New York was called "the
chief mourner," and he kept at it until his
description was so widely published that it
was dangerous for him to go to any funeral.
As known by the police, Mr. and Mrs.
Thayer attend church and house funerals,
and work in the most advanced style of
pocket-picking. They generally go with

gang, and crowded until the opportune
moment for robbing is found, and then
the plunder is rapidly passed from one
hand to another, so that if the theft is suspected
and an arrest made, no property
will be found on the real thief near the
person plundered. Generally the one who
actually takes the property will be so profuse
in apoligies for the crowding, and so
intensely respectable in appearance that
suspicion will be averted.
It is not unusual now on the occasion of
a large funeral of some noted person to
send detectives for the purpose of spotting
the best known thieves. At the funeral
of Mr. Garrison, detectives Rogers and
Golden found Walter Brown,a well-known
pick-pocket,mingling among the mourners.
Walter is a burglar as well as a pick-pocket
and is the one who helped in the Harrington
safe burglary In Washington. On
another occasion cletective Golden found
Mart Allen, the well-known pick-pocket,
working in the cathedral in company with
one of his brothers. Only a few weeks
ago a neatly dressed woman named Mary
Williams, in deep mourning, was detected
in picking a gold watch from the pocket
of a woman at the side of a coffin.

been identified with this branqh of crime
are "Nosey Mullins," Ellon Sulliyan,
alias Howanagh, Margaret Bell, Mary
Blake recently arrested in Brooklyn and
identified by Inspector Byrnes, Jno,
Jack Tier and his wife. Ann
Mary Ann Taylor and her consort,
"Funeral Wells," have been the leaders of
a number of 'funeral robberies. Other
well known pick-pockets in this line are
John Kehoe, Mary Moore, Mary Hughes
and Annie McGwi'n. Their pictures are
the most respectable looking in the gallery.
Th6re is little that is forbidding, and
much that is attractive in their physiognomies.
Of course, when a funeral is going
ori persons will not be over particular
about inquiring concerning those present.

THIEVES AT FUNERALS.
Sedate Strangers Who Mingle With
Throngs Beside a Colli n.
Thieves consult the notices in the newspapers
and select houses where, judging from
the neighborhood, they will find good
picking, and then they go in force so as to
work scientifically. They know when is
the safest time to "push and crowd. It is a
safe rule at a funeral as well as in any
crowd to look out for one's valuables.
STATES ISLAND DUELISTS.
A Furious Encounter With Bowie Knives.
N. Y. Star.
On last Sunday afternoon John Connor,
known also as Red Leary, met Jas. Brady,
alias California Jim, in asaloon in Clifton,
not far from the Seaman's Retreat Hospital.
The men were old acquaintances, the
greeting between them was warm, and
they enjoyed numerous drinks together.
Nothing unpleasant occurred until the
evening was far advanced, when, as it is
alleged, a wordy war took place. Each
charged the other with being his secret
"Cliin music," said Red Leary, bringing
the discussion to a head, " is the amusement
of boys. You and I are men ; let
us settle our differences like men."
"That suits me," replied the Californian,
as he shook Leary's hand.
"How will we settle it?" asked Leary.
"I'm willing to try it with bowie
knives," was the reply, and these weapons
we're agreed on.
The men took another drink together in
an apparently friendly manner, and left
the saloon. Both were considerably under
the influence of liquor, but their language
was coherent and their gait steady.
Their conversation in the saloon was overheard
by several persons, but nobody imagined
that they had any intention of
entering on a deadly conflict, especially as
it was known that word quarrels were a
matter of frequent occurrence between
them. Both were runners for rival sailors'
boarding houses in this city, and they relied
on securing their customers from incoming
vessels while off the boarding station
When they left the saloon they were followed,
at a respectful distance, by a few
young men, who thought they might possibly
be serious in their agreement to figlit
a duel, and such proved to be the fact.
They proceeded to a secluded spot on the
road known as Cliff street, and entered on
their deadly work in a thoroughly business-like
manner. They removed their
outer clothing, shaking hands, each
pledged his word to the other, that no
matter what the result should be, neither
man would make a charge or give any evidence
before a court of justice. They
were stationed ten feet apart, with the
knrves gleaming aloft in the right hand
of each. Eeverything being ready ,'Leary
gave the word :
"One, two, three!"
The echo had not rebounded from the
trees above when they were embraced in
deathly grip. Their curses and fierce cries
could be distinctly heard at a distance of a
quarter of a mile. The youths who had
kept on their trial rushed in all directions
yelling aloud for the police. Several minutes
elapsed before an officer could bo
found ; but finally two of them arrived and
separated the combatants. At the time,
Brady was underneath, his antagonist on
his throat, and both struggling like grim
death. Both had received several wounds,
the most dangerous being those in Brady's
breast and abodmen.
Leary was arrested and taken to the
station'house at Stapleton, and Brady was
removed in a wagon to his home in Clifton,
where he was attended by Dr. Feeny, who
had little hopes of saving his life, as the
steel had penetrated the lugs and intestines.
Toward midnight ho grew weaker,
and a Catholic priest and coroner Ambrose
were summoned to his bedside. He admitted
to the coroner that he had received
his wounds at the hands of Leajy. The
priest then- administered the last rite& of
the church. Ho was still alive yesterday;
but .little hopes were entertained " of his
final recovery. , . . -
