The Wool Industry Under a Tariff
J. TV. Test, a prominent wool yarn man
ufacturer, of Richmond, was at the Dent
eon last night and expressed himself con
cernln? the wool business. lie said It was
almost past belief that a few years ago.
under the "Wilson tariff, wool was plied up
In tho Western States, unable to find a
purchaser, even at tha then prevailing low
rate of 13 cents a pound, and sheep were
shipped by the thousand to Chicago and
other markets to be sold at from 50 cents
to. ft a head. The reason for the enormous
accumulation of wool at that time, he said,
was that, with wool on the free list, for
eign wool was used almost to the entire
exclusion of the American product. Now,
ho said, the condition was changed and the
same wool that formerly sold for 12 cents
a pound now brings as high as 33 cents.
Mr. Test, In discussing his own factory,
said he sold large quatltles of yarn to John
H. Hunter, who Is now on trial In the
Federal Court, through his connection with
the Co-operative Knlttinff Company. He
said. In his opinion, Mr. Hunter was Inno
cent of any wrong doing, and that from
the fact that he bought yarn to the value
of $1,000 at a time, and paid cash for It. he
thought he really was engaged In the man
ufacture of knit goods. Ho thought the
government would have a hard time prov
ing that Hunter had not lived up to all
the contracts he had made.

Contradictory Evidence as to the
Merit of Vnrloun Patrolmen Two
More Trinis to Be Held.
There were times during the trial of the
ex-policemen before the Board of Safety,
yesterday, which reminded one of a busy
day In Police Court. Some of the cases
were disposed of with Police Court rapid
ity. During the day some of the evidence
brought out was of an Interesting char
acter. When the board adjourned last even
ing all of the cases had been disposed of
with the exception of those of Sergeant
Leonard Crane and Patrolman Elmer
Stoddard. Crane was a witness before the
board yesterday morning, but he was taken
ill and was not able to be on hand in the
afternoon. He will be tried th!s morning if
he Is able to be out. Crane asked for the
charges against him and they allege "neg
ligence In performing his duties as desk
sergeant." Further than that he could gain
no information as to what he Is expected
It Is said Crane will bring witnesses be
fore the board to show he was not negli
gent in the performance of his duties. Dur
ing the afternoon proceedings the case of
Henry Slate was heard. He was charged
with drinking to excess and with being In
dolent and negligent. The latter two
charges were dismissed by the prosecution.
Captain Dawson said he spoke to Slate
about drinking on duty, but believed he
had stopped as requested. Captain Kruger
and Superintendent Qulgley also testified
CAUSE OF A RED FACE.
Slate took the stand and admitted drink
ing while op duty, but promised he would
never do it again. He said tho only time he
was ever In trouble was once when he
whipped a fellow for Insulting his wife. He
said Captain Dawson once spoke to him
about his face being red. He replied that
his face was red when he was born and It
had remained In that condition. Slate had
several prominent business men to testify
to his efficiency and among those who said
he was a good officer were J. D. Pierson,
August Woerner, James L. Keach, W. IL
Messenger and George Vondersaar.
Timothy Crannan pleaded guilty to hav
ing taken a drink while on duty, but said
he was not guilty of indolence as charged.
Sergeant Corrigan testified that he had
some difficulty With Crannan over an order
to arrest "street walkers" on South Illi
nois street Orders had been issued to ar
rest all such characters and send them to
the station. Sergeant Lowe took the stand
to testify to tne same thing. Crannan was
acting as his own attorney, and he cross
examined Sergeant Lowe.
"You say, sergeant, you saw street walk
ers in my district?"
"Yes, sir," answered the witness.
"Well, you are an officer of the law, why
didn't you arrest them?"
Sergeant Hagerman testified that Cran
nan drank, but said he never saw him
when he was unable to do his duty.
Superintendent Qulgley said complaints
were made several times against Crannan
because he was drinking, and he said he
talked with him about the matter. The su
perintendent also told about Slate's failure
to send "street walkers" to the station.
Detective Dugan testified that Crannan
never appeared to be under the influence
of liquor while on duty, but he had noticed
him under the Influence of intoxicants
while oft duty.
Detective Asch said ho "ran" with him
three years ago, but did not know anything
about Crannan drinking while on duty.
FOR THE DEFENSE.
The defense called Captain Kruger to the
stand and the witness said he never saw
Crannap under the Influence of liquor. He
said he knew Crannan drank a little, but
he was always able to attend to his duties.
Sergeant Giblin said he knew Crannan in
dulged in intoxicating liquors a little, but
never saw hlnv under the influence.
Captain Dawson said he never heard
Crannan criticise his superior officers. The
witness said he saw him when he had been
Ex-Patrolman Robert Jordan testified
that he 'ran" with Crannan and that they
arrested all immoral women with whom
they came In contact in their districts. He
said he and Crannan did drink beer to
gether while on duty but never drank to
Crannan said when he went on the stand
In his own defense that he had been In the
habit of drinking beer since he was three
years of age, but never drank It to excess.
He denied ever having criticised any supe
Robert Jordan was the next ex-patrolman
to be tried and he pleaded guilty to drink
ing while on duty as charged, but he said
he was not Indolent. The prosecution dis
missed the charge of indolence. Jordan
said he had been on the force twelve years
and had never been before the board for
drinking. "I hope you will be as lenient
with me as possible," he said to the board,
"and hope you will feel like retaining me."
Detective Stout did not answer to his
name when called for trial and his case
was heard in his absence. He was charged
with drinking while on duty. Captain Kin
ney, of the detective department and De
tectives Morgan and Holtz swore that
Stout drank almost constantly and the
habit interferred with his duties as a de
tective. Superintendent Qulgley said he
spoke to Stout about drinking to excess but
it had no effect.
- WAS NOT PRESENT.
Charles W. Rockefellow's case also came
up and went by default as he was not pres
ent to refute the charges made ugainst
him. Patrolman Al Smith claimed he heard
Rockefellow speak of the superintendent in
a decidedly disrespectful manner, using a
vile epithet in referring to him. Captain
Kruger and Patrolman Hagerty said
Rockefellow criticised tho department and
his superior officers.
Earl Titus was tried on the charges of
being lazy and Indolent and neglectful of
his duty as a patrolman. Sergeant Lowe
testified that ho was lazy and did not ob
serve discipline in addressing his superior
officers. Tho witness said he spoke to
Captain Dawson about the matter.
Captain Kruger testified that Titus was
careless and showed lack of ability in the
performance of his duties.
Captain Dawson said he was indolent.
Sergeant Corrigan said Titus took no inter
est la his work. Seigoant Giblin said Titus
wanted to bo on familiar terms with his
Titus was before the board in the after
noon to refute the charges against him.
Dr. Sollis P.unncl3 told of Titus having
owed him a bill for medical services and
because he had been a little slow in pay
ment complaint had been made against the
onicer by the witness. lr. RunneU asked
if his complaint had had anything to Co
with the dismissal of Titus, but he was
assured that it had not.
Titus said he had never been reprimanded
during the time he was on the force by
any of his superior officers, and did not
know when he was neglectful of his duties
as charged. He said he was never neglect
ful to his knowledge, and did not know he
had been changed from one district to
another because of his bad behavior and
neglect of duty. He said he was never be
fore the board on any charge.
"I wish you would be as lenient as pos
sible in my bthalf," he said, "and if pos
sible reinstate me, and I will guarantee
never to be called before the board again."
Harry C. Uarbee and Ira Lect, two of the
dismissed patrolmen, were the first to be
tried yesterday. Barbee was charged with
being one of the disorganizes, with being
abusive to citizens, drinking to excess, and
with Indolence. Leet was charged with
congregating and with winking in the roll
call room when orders were read which
did not please him. A charge of indolence
was also placed against him by the superintendent.-
Superintendent Qulgley took the stand
and told of reprimanding Barbee for drink
ing to exce.cs. He said he had received
complaints from citizens on Barbee's dis
tricts concerning hU actions. The connec
tion of Barbee and Leet with the clique
was reported to the superintendent about
the time of the election of pension fund
trustee?. Tho superintendent stated that
one of the complaints against Barbee came
from a widow on Indiana avenue, who
complained that the officer had abused her
son. It developed that the boy in question
was out on suspended sentence. The super
intendent also testified against Leet.
Sergeant Corrigan told of having asked
for Barbee's district to be changed because
he was disrespectful to citizens. The wit
ness said Lect was a good officer and not
BROKE A COLLAR BONE.
Corrigan told of Barbee having broken
Dave Stuart's collar bone while arresting
him. Patrolman Martin Haley claimed he
saw Barbee under the Influence of liquor at
Patrolman Thomas Rochford told of a
conversation with Barbee In which the lat
ter claimed he generally took home about
three gallons of whisky a month. Patrol
man Hlliman said he talked with Barbee
after the latter's dismissal, and that Bar
bee had told him Superintendent Qulgley
would soon be working at Klngan's again.
He said Barbee had said ho would prefer
charges against him for calling him a liar.
Patrolman Peter Kuhn said his memory
was very distinct in recalling that Leet
was a "congregator."
Captain Dawson was the first witness for
the defense, and he said he had never seen
Leet with the much-talked-about clique.
The witness also said ho had never heard
of Barbee and Leet being indolent. He
said he had heard of Barbee drinking, and
instructed the sergeants to observe him on
his district. Sergeant Hyland testified that
he considered Leet an efficient officer and
had noticed no indolence or negligence on
the part of either defendant. Sergeant
Hagerman and Sergeant Lund also said
they knew of no indolence on the part of
either Barbee or Leet. Theodore Smlthers,
J. W. Moore, Edward Kramer and Clinton
Huff testified to their good reputations. C.
G. Eaglesfield considered Leet a good offi
cer and gave him credit for breaking up a
gang of thieves.
Leet took the stand In his own defense,
and said that in the six years he had been
on the force he had only been off four
days. "I have never been reprimanded,
and I have the highest regard for all my
superiors, even the superintendent," he
TALKS FOR HIMSELF.
He said he knew of no clique, and the
only complaint ever made was by officers
who run with him at night complaining he
walked too much. Leet claimed he sent two
men to the workhouse and one to the pen
itentiary Just before he was discharged,
and was always on the go. Since his dis
missal he has worked for the Adams Ex
press Company, and has also opened up a
little laundry -business of his own. Barbee
denied being one of the congregators or
that he had ever been intoxicated. He said
he might have spoken harshly to people on
his district when the district was a tough
one. In explaining the whisky story he
said his father, who is eighty years of age,
comes to town every two weeks, and he
always takes a gallon of whisky home to
him. He denied making any remark about
Superintendent Qulgley, but said he had
conversed with Hillman and Huhn In the
taproom at Schmidt's brewery when the
two officers were in full uniform. He ad
mitted having gone to sleep on duty, and
said the superintendent called him a liar
when he said he had only slept forty min
utes. He said he went to sleep after being
worn out with work at the state fair, and
was with his partner. Patrolman Amsden.
They missed a 2 o'clock call and he was
Attorney Cox made a short argument in
which he said the charges against the men
had not been proven.
Attorney John Holtzman appeared for ex
Sergeant Fred Kurtz to answer to charges
of drinking to excess. The attorney said
that Kurtz wanted to say he drank a little
too much, but had not realized it, and de
sired the board to be lenient and give him
Chairman Roth said that as soon as the
cases against Crane and Stoddard are tried
the board will then render decisions in all
of the cases against the ex-pollcemen.
PURSUED BY A WOMAN.

Thomas H. Warn pier, living at 1113 Ken

Detectives Morgan and Holtz, and slated as
Wampler recently left Wellsburg, W. Va.,
where he boarded with Mrs. Rilla Shriver,
and warrants there were out for his arrest,
the woman claiming that before his de
parture he had taken a gold watch and $20
of her money. A few days ago the detec
tives located his residence here, but were
unable to find him, as he had left the city.
It was learned yesterday he had returned
and he was taken Into custody. He pro
duced a statement, signed by Mrs. Shriver,
In which she agreed not to prosecute him
for the theft. Tie was, however, locked
up, but later released, it appearing that
the "West Virginia authorities would not
send for him.
When Wampler left Wellsburg, Mrs.
Shriver at once took up the task of finding
him, and was in the city at tho time the
detectives were first looking for him. She
followed him to the home of his parents, at
Gosport, and thence to Spencer, to which
place he had gone. There she met him and
caused his arrest, but upon payment of the
money and surrender of the watch he was
released. While at Gosport Mrs. Shriver
lost her purse, and had it not been for the
watch and money secured from Wampler,
would have been dependent upon charity
until she could have communicated with

mended by Carrol D. Wright.
State Statistician Conner In January of
this year began what he regards as the
most important statistical work for the
State that the bureau has ever undertaken.
He says he has long had the work under
consideration, but on account of the lim
ited appropriation feared to enter upon it,
but the first of the year concluded to do
so, as it has Impressed him with Its im
portance to the State, showing as It will
the growth and distribution of wealth
among the people. Mr. Conner says the
completion of the civil division in the State
of this work has more than ever Impressed
him with its importance. He says four
decades are taken for comparisons, viz.,
1S70, 1SS0, 1SÜ0 and 1900. These census periods
are chosen, he says. In order to have the
census population of the civil divisions of
the State by which to make comparisons
not only with actual numbers of property
owners by civil divisions in each period,
but also the trend by per cents. In each
decade. Mr. Conner says the importance
of the work is best explained by what has
been completed In one average civil di
vision, or county, of the State not yet tab
ulated, but a complete return for tabula

over two years to complete this work for

In further explanation of this work Mr.
Conner said that his data for it is the
quadrennial appraisements of the real

valuations of personal property, and that
by these he obtained the property valua

ties. The county from which he obtained

A MANDOLIN RECITAL.
31 r. Valentine Abt Is Heard In This
Considering the thousands of people who
play and admire tho Uss practical instru
ments like the mandolin and guitar, it Is
surprising that a large audience did not
greet Mr. Valentine Abt at the Propylaeum
yesterday evening. Mr. Abt has been called
the "Paganlnl of the mandolin," and, while
this title may or may not be altogether de
served, his recital last night was a revela
tion In the possibilities of the little Instru
ment that was recognized by Mozart, who
wrote an accompaniment for it to his fa
mous serenade in "Don Giovanni." The
original mandolin, however, with its char
acteristic convex sound body, was an Arab
instrument made by placing a resonance
board or membrane upon a gourd, which
was strung with silk and played as now,
with a plectrum, or "pick," of shell or
bone. At the time of the crusades It found
its way westward Into Italy, where the, fa
miliar instrument of to-day was perfected.
In this specialists ago it is not surpris
ing that an artist like Mr. Abt should have
developed the range and the scope of his
instrument. His numbers last night gave
evidence of a perfect ear and muslcianly
Intuition. In his own compositions he has
unconsciously used the instrument in its
most natural state and key to express his
musical ideas. Of the "Slumber On,"
"Fantasia," "Sounds from Church," "Valse
Brilliante" and "Imoromntu." which was
played in place of the programme Chopin
number, "Vale," Op. 64, No. 1, the latter
was the best and showed the work of the
specialist. While a sympathetic duet was
being played on the "a" and "e" strings
the broken accompaniment and bass notes
were taken on the "d" and "g" strings by
reaching over the finger-board with the lit
tle finger of the left hand. The volume of
tone produced In this number, which was
without piano accompaniment, was besf
expressed by Mrs. Riser after the concert,
who said "it sounded like an entire mando
In the lighter classics, such as the
"Andante," Op. 64, by Mendelssohn, "Noc
turne." Op. D. No. 2, by Chopin, and
Wlenlawski's "Souvenir de Posen," Mr. Abt
gave astonishing violin glides full of ex
pression and fueling. The remaining num

fifth air variations (Dancla), "Serenade"
(Marie), and "Annie Laurie," with varia
tionspresented the instrument as usually
heard, though Mr. Abt's perfect technique
left little room for criticism. Much of Mr.
Abt's success is due to the artistic piano
accompaniment of Mrs. Simon Klser, who.
with the discriminating use of the damper
pedal, at no time overshadeoNthe short
lived tones of the solo instrument. The
concert was given under the auspices of
Mr. Frank Z. Maffey, of this city.
