CHARGES MAYBE SUSTAINED
Committee of the City Council of
Laurel Ready to Report.
VERDICT AGAINST THE MAYOR
Malfeasance in Office Is One of the Leading
Allegations It Was Also Alleged that
Teams Owned by Timanus and Castle Were
Employed on tho Street Improvements.
The city council of Laurel at its last meet
ing, at tho request of Mayor Timanus and
President Castle, as stated In The Timls, ap
pointed a committee, consisting of Messrs.
Kerr nnd Schooloy, to investigato tho charges
of malfoasance in office mado against tho
mayor and president in connection with tho
improvements on Washington avenue. Tho
committee has completed its investigations
and will make its roport at the meeting of the
council to-morrow night.
The investigations were held on Wednes
day and Thursday nights, Messrs Kerr and
Schorloy, conducting them nnd ex-Mayor
Cull, having mado the charges, appearing
practically as a prosecutor. Charles F.
Shofer, jr., was placed on tho stnnd and
testified to practically tho same statement he
made to The Times two weeks ago, namely
that Mr. Breen, of tho Arm of Breen & Feeloy,
contractors, had como to him and ottered to
give orders on tho store of Phelps it Shofer
if the merchants would allow Breen fc Teeley
a discount. When asked what discount tho
contractors wanted, Mr. Breen roplied that
as a considerable profit was made on groc
eries the orders would bo sent to tho highest
bidder. Mr. Shofer had declined to bid.
ORDERS HAD BEEN HONORED.
Direct evidence was introduced, it is re
ported, to show that tho orders had been sent
to tho store of Mayor Timanus. whero they
had been honored. Evidence was also intro
duced showing that both Mayor Timanus and
President Castle had had toams employed on
the work since the passago of tho ordiuanco
of October 1, prohibiting by express stipula
tion any member of the city government
entering into any business relations with tho
contractors in connection with the work.
The mayor and president wero then placed
on tho stand, nnd both admitted, it is alleged,
that they know of tho provisions of tho ordi
nance, and that they had continued thoir re
lations with tho contractors after its passago.
Mr. Timanus testified that up to October 1 he
had honored orders to the amount of two
hundred and odd dollars; that he could not
give tho exact amount of orders honored
since. Neither could ho givo the amount duo
him for tho services of his team and wagon
on tho work. In ono case, ho said, an order
had been partially traded out and a balance of
$2 had, at tho request of tho holder of the or
der, been discounted at 10 per cent, for cash.
TO GET RID OF THE CONTRACTORS.
On tho subject of tho approval of tho esti
mate of Engineer Dashiel, President Castlo
said that he had approved it because ho con
sidered that tho work performed and tho ma
terials furnished wore of thatf value, and
knowing that the monoy would not be paid
until passed upon by the council.
Mayor Timanus said that ho had approved
the estiraato "to get rid of tho contractor"
who had como to him and asked him to sign
it In response to a question by Mr. Cull, ho
said ho had "never read tho contract in his
life; had never read it up to this present mo
ment." He said ho hnd expected when tho
time came for paymont that somo ono would
tell him what was tho proper course to pur
sue. In view of tho fact that the evidence is, so
strong, and that the mayor aud president
admit that they violated tho ordinance, it is
thought that there can be no doubt that tho
committeo will sustain the charges. It is
not, howeror, thought that they will make
BECAME A RAYING MANIAC.
Unfortunate Andrew Murphy, of the Sixth
Auditor's Office, .May End llis
Days in a Mad House.
Andrew Murphy, the young white man who
became suddenly insane last Monday night,
and made a raid on the congregation of the
Mount Vernon Plaeo M. E. Church, nearly
causing a panic among tne attendants, has
developed into a wildly insane man at tho
jail, where he has beon confined since Tues
day, and but little hope of his recovery is ox
pressed. It will be remembered that Murphy, who
was a clerk in tho Sixth Auditor's office,
fiercely fought the policemen at the First pre
cinct station-house, and when he arrived at
tho polico court mado a savage attack on
Officer Pat Madlgpn, who is iu charge of
tho prisoners' cage. Later ha threw a large
piece of triangular cast iron at Officer Madi
gan, which narrowly missed striking the
latter on tho head. Tho iron struck the
brick wall opposite the cage door and mado
a dent nearly an inch deep in tho solid bricks.
Had it struck tho policeman his skull would
undoubtedly havo been cleft in twain. A
charge of assault and battery was entered
against Murphy in order to securo his incar
ceration in jail for treatment.
Ho became to wild after bo'ng placed in a
cell there that it became necessary to put him
in a straight jacket. Yestorday the jacket was
removed and Murphy became frnutic. Ho
imagined ho was a train master and gave
orders in a tone loud enough to be heard all
over tho big jail structure, much to the dis
comfort of tho other enforced guests of that
institution and to tho annoyance of tho
Warden Leonard will endeavor to-morrow
to havo Murphy examined by a jury under a
writ do lunatico and committed to the gov
ernment insano asylum. Mr. P. Doolan, of
the Treasury Department, is trying to locate
Murphy's family, who aro supposed to be in
Mishap to a Gun Jacket.
In placing tho second jacket on tho new
8-ineh metal-steel rifio yesterday at the navy
yard a mishap occurred which will, howover,
cause no Eerious delay in tho completion of
tho gun. This rifio is tho first of tho kind
ever mado, and tho jackets are being put on
by tho new Sellers process. Iu lowerinc tho
second jacket to its place, one end being thin-
l ner than another, tho thinner end cooled
first and held fast, causing the process of
jacketing to "stick." Commander Lightsey
said that on Mouday tho jacket will be re
lit ated, and lbat there will be no difficulty in
getting it into position.
Seized with a Hemorrhage.
While J. M. Gardner, of No. 1418 Eloventh
street northwest, was walking down Ninth
street yesterday afternoon, ho was seized with
an intestinal homorrhngo and fell to the side
walk. Ho was remoed to tho Emergency
Hospital in tho ambulance, nnd his condition
is regarded as rather sertous.
