Ita Purpose Wai to Swindle Bookmakers
All Over the Country.
Saratoga. N. Y., Aug. 28. William
A. Finkerton, manager of the Chicago
branch of the detective agency bear
ing" his name, uncovered a clever plot
to swindle bookmaker all over the
country by arresting Edward B. Green
wall here Monday. It la believed by
the detective that the K-heine was eon
concted by Alcnzo J. Whiteman, once
a state senator in Minnesota, chairmau
of. the Democratic state committee,
and so prominent in state politics that
his party presented his name as a can
dldate for vi-e president. Green wail
says that Whiteman planned the raid
on the 'bookies," and that he was
merely an agent In the transaction.
Two weeks ajto Sol Leichtenstein and
"Eddie" Burke y ookmAkers at the local
track, received telegrams signed "John
Kerr." stating that the sender had de
posited $3U0 to the credit of each book
maker in the Bank of New Amsterdam.
A little later they received orders from
Kerr to place the money on a certain
horse, which won. and the winnings,
according to another message, were
wagered on another race. The mys
terious Kerr won both races, and ?ldO
was placed to his credit.
Several days afterward a man ap
proached Leichtenstein and introduced
himelf as Kerr and requested the
money due him. The bookmaker said
lie would have to be identified. Kerr
did not take this amiss, and politely
requested Leichtenstein to return hlni
his original $.",00. which was done.
Kerr bet some of this money and won.
Leichtenstein concluded that he was
all right, and paid him the whole
amount. Burke did the same, and be
tween them Kerr got away with over

game, and it occurred to the bookmak

only crook in the country capable of

Maryland Admiral Adds Another to
Ilia List of Legal Experts--
Washington. Aug. 28. It Is tinder-
stood that Admiral Sampson Is to be
represented before the SMdey court of
inquiry by counsel. The navy depart
ment officials say they have no official
knowledge on the subject, and point to
the fact that the court of Inquiry is
the only body authorized to admit or
debar counsel In such cases. It may,
in itn pleasure, deny the person under
investigation the privilege of having
counsel present before the court, or,
on the other hand, it may go the length
of permitting persons in secondary in
terest the privilege of employing conn
sel before the court.
New York Lawyer the Probable Man.
So the officials say they have no
knowledge officially of the retention
of counsel by" Admiral Sampson, but
privately it is admitted that he expects
to be so represented: It wag learned
yesterday that Mr. W. H. Stayton, of
the law firm of Stayton & Chambers,
of New York, was expected at the navy
department today, and it Is supposed
that his purpose Is to consult the rec
ords of the department in the interests
of Admiral Sampson. Stayton Is a
graduate of the Naval Academy who.
though coming out at the head of his
class, elected to join the marine corps.
He was detailed to i.uty in the office
of the judge advocate general, and lat
er resigned to practice law.
Still Another Lawyer for Schley.
Philadelphia. Aug. 28. The Record
says that Allert II. O'Brien, a promi
nent member of the Philadelphia bar.
has been called in as associate counsel
for Rear Admiral Schley in the coming
investigation at Washington. Last
Thursday O'Brien was in Washington
in consultation with Schley's counsel,
and materially assisted them In the
preparation of the brief for the court
of Inquiry. During the late HO's he oc
cupied the post of judge advocate of
the West India fleet, and in 18l! was
stationed at Annapolis, where Schley
was lieutenant commander. A warm
friendship developed there between the
two men. O'Brien resigned from tlie
navy in lS7" and took np the 'firactioc

official statement frou this company

that mills put into operation during

and all men going to work now will be

say that henceforth they are deter

the threat with indifference their only
reply, being that the company cannot
carry out its plan because nearly all of
the skilled tin workers of the country
are members of the association, and
the plants cannot be run without them.

SHAMROCK II IS FAST
Shows Herself Off in Great Shape
on All Courses Except
EXPEETS BAT SHE IS DANGEB0U3
Stands Up Like a Steeple Under Her
Great Spread, of Canvas.
New York, Aug. 28. The Shamrock
was given a good long spin yesterday
both inside and outride the Hook. She
was tried in windward work and broad
and close reaching. In fact the chal
lenger was given everything except a
spinnaker run, in a breeze that some
times piped up to twelve kuots. and at
no time was under igbt knots. The
good opinion of her speed, merit and
a'biliity to carry lofty canvas was em
phasized. Many yachting experts who
saw her performance call her a won
derful boat. All say Fhe is the most
dangerous proposition that has ever
come over the waters hunting for the
America's cup. She bad life in her
every movement. She gathers way
with remarkable rapidity: is quick in
stays; points very high, and stands up
und?r a tremendous spread of canvas
like the proverbial steeple.
Rati Never Under Water.
At no time did sbe put her rail un
der, even when wearing around close
hauled and taking a twelve-knot breezo
atieaui. With rail this she is a very
beautiful boat under sail and taken al
together is a decided Improvement over
the old Shamrock. The only new sail
tried yesterday was her largest club
topsail. It was a revelation to those
who saw it, and is certainly one of
Katsey's finest creations. It appears
much larger than the topsails on the
Columbia and Constitution. It ex
ttndt further out over the gaff and
runs up higher above the top mast. It
is said that the distance from the boot
of the mast to the top of the topsail
club is over TOO feet. The sail sheets
out very well, and there Is less loose
ness along the head than on either of
the American boats. (
Sir Thomas Says Rhe Is Improving.
Sir Thomas Lipton was on board
during the entire trial and when seen
at Sandy Hook after the racer picked
np her moorings seemed much pleased
with her showing. "This is the twen
tieth spin which Hie boat has had.
said he. "including her races on the
other side. She is- Improving all the
time, and I am more pleased with her
today than -ever before- At no time
did w. carry a uy water on dock: nhe
had life every minute, and if she does
not .carry back the cup the American
lKat, that beats her may well inspire
pride In your people." A notable feat
ure of the day was the constant sa
luting which the challenger received
from ocean steamers down to the
smallest of launches. The ShamrocK
covered the nine mile from be south
west sprit to Owl's Head against the
tide of three knots in fifty-nine min
utes. The run back over the same
course including six tacks was done in
