Mayor ' Hewitt Inadvertently Lets
the Oat Out of tho Bag.
Tho County Demooraoy's Neat
Little Scheme Exposed.
Smith and Bookman to Roelgn Bo
fore Howltt LeavoaJHnco.
Tho details of tho plot of the County
Democracy to obtain control of the Depart
mant of Publio Works and tho Law Depart
ment for tho ensuing four yonrs has beon dis.
D.Lowber Smith and Henry E Beekman are
to resign and to be reappointed Commissioner
of Public Works and Corporation Counsel ro
speoUroly somo timo between Doc. 10 and
Jan. 1, and will fight to maintain themselves
in office for four years.
Mayor Howltt hinted this yesterday, and
tho Tammany Hall leaders, who had hopod
that Thb Evenino Wom-d's nisertion that
enoh a sohomo was brewing was not true,
aro to-day obliged to admit that thero now
eeems to exist no doabt that the County
Democracy, with tho assistance of Mayor
Hewitt, will attoinpt to denriTO Tammany of
tho choiecst fruits of her rocent victory.
Tammany Hall men had based their hopes
on Mayor Hewitt. They did not believe that
he would place himself on record as a law
breaker by appointing successors to Commis
sioner D. Lowber Smith and Corporation
Counsel Beekman for full torms from
Deo. 10.
They did not believe that Mayor Hewitt
would dare set himself up as a court of lost
resort and declare tho unconstitutionality of
the Consolidation act, which makes the term
of offlco of those two officials expire May 1,
A prominent Tammany Hall man said to
day t
" Yes, sirt tho Counties are coins to try to
steal the Publio Works and the Corporation
Counsel's office. There is no use of further
coddling ourselves with the beliof that they
" " Mayor Hewitt has let the oat out of tho
bag. He says that thero exists no conspiracy.
r Of course not. Mayor Hewitt is too hon-
-oroblo a gentleman to become a political con.
L isplrator.
" Neither would ho violato the law which
5 plainly says that the terms of office of the
H Commissioner, and tho Corporation Counsel
cxpiro May 1.
1 untie Abram's resources are many, and
I bo has found a way to avoid being both a
a conspirator' and a law-breaker, and he bos
W beon getting the evidence ready" in advanoo
I to prove bis innocence. ,
I ' " He asserted yesterday that he would fill
f "every vacancy which exists or may exist prior
' to Jan. 1. and takes tho trouble to tell tho re
porters that if Corporation Counsel Beekman
rero to resign he would appoint his suc
cessor, V " In that statement is to be found tho meat
'In the cocoonut. It reveals every detail of the
7 " The position of tho Counties is that tho
Consolidation act is unconstitutional, and
that the terms of office of the officials to bo
appointed expires Dec. 10.
' " Mark mytwords. Borne time between
Deo 10 and Jan. 1 D. Lowbor Smith and
Henry JR. Beekman will resign.
" According to his previously expressed in
tention Mayor Hewitt will fill tho vacancies
most probably by the reappointment of the
tame Individuals.
"They will not be appointed for any
epeoifled time, but for ' unexpired terms.'
" If the position of the County Democraoy
that the Consolidation act is unconstitutional
is correct, tho ' unexpired terms ' for which
4hey will be appointed will end four years
from Deo. 10, 1888. If not they will go out of
'office May 1 next.
"By this clever arrangement Mayor Hewitt
will clear himself both of tho charge of con
spiracy and law.breoklng.
' ' He will simply appoint for ' unexpired
terms, and will let the incumbents of tho.
offices fight it out in the courts with the men
whom Mayor Grant will appoint next May,
as he suggested in'his Interview of yesterday,
when he said :
" If anybody objected to my action In the
matter it would be his duty 'to go to the
.courts and test the question.'
" This is the scheme, you may depend on
it. It is a pretty soheme, too.
"Mayor Grant's appointees will find a
lively time before them next Summer when
they try to take possession of those two de.
i partments." ,
Asked why he thought that D. Lowber
Smith and Corporation Counsel Beekman
-would be reappointed, the gentleman said
that they probably would not agree to the
, scheme if they were not to boncfit personally
by it. i .

Jokers Playing White-Cap Prank.
CrKcrxiUTi, Bee 5. Tho excitement about
White Caps in Southern Ohio, notably In Brown
County, continues, and is kept alive by numer

ever, that only two persons have been whipped
as yet, the last victim being Adam Barkes, of Sar

xeo that practical jokers can materially assist in

Bivlng turkey, a noti from a country school
toacbor in Vermont and tho gift of a gold

topics of talk the past few days. Somo of tho
'local papers have stated that the Mayor was
taken in, but if ho was it was in tho goodnoss
of his heart and in believing that the note ho
welvod was written with: honost intentions.
Tho letter whioh tho Mayor has received

Jr. O'Xrlen.
MuciiItEsricTr.nFniENn: I hardly know how
to bcein this lotter to you after receiving such a
beautiful gift from yon last evening. Words
cannot begin to oxpross tho thanks which I re
turn to you In thislotter. !
When I wrote tho note, little did I ever expect
to rcceivo a reply, and whon Mr, ltolfe, tho
(fobs correspondent, called on mo 'astcYenlug
with tho telegram bearing tho nenn, I wan so
surprised I could not givo him anything but a
disconnected account. I will try and express
myself moro clearly in this letter. Nothing could
navo been more acceptable. I am an only child.
I was graduated at tho Randolph Btate Nor
mal School four years ago. Bitico then I have
taught three years, and one summer operated a
typewriter for a law firm in New York. I was
obliged to give up teaching ou account of ill
health for a timo. I havo never been able to
purchsso a wateh and chain, so I have always
borrowed one, and now to receive such a valua
ble watch from you I am very truly grateful, and
I think! can afford to get a nlco chain to attach
to it. I was so pleased on receiving it that I
could not express myself. I assure yon it was a
great surprise. I know now that there is one
good Democrat. I think a man of your
heart , ought to be a Republican. This
may lead me to turn and changq my
politics; at least, I shall always
cherish kind affections for one who has been so
kind to me. The watch is beantlful. I havo
worn it to church to-day, feeling very proud of
the watch and the giver. Mr. ltolfe, the (llobe
correspondent, spoko in very high terms of yon.
I think yon well worthy of being re-elected
Mayor, and one that tho city of Boston may well
feel proud of. Yon will not need to go to Qnincy
Markot next year to purchaso a Thanksgiving
turkey, for I assuro you. if I am aliro,
you shall receive as nice a turkey for
Thanksgiving as tho Btate of Ver
mont can afford. The watch camo just
in time.'as I go in my school to-morrow morn
ing, and the watch will bo my constant com
palnion. There was nothing I so much needed,
and nothing could have pleased mo more.
Bhould you like, I will send my photograph to
you. My parents were very much pleased.
Both of them are in very poor health, and they
join with me in thanks to yon. Hoping to hear
from you again, I will close with many thanks
and the best wishes of your Vermont friends.

Mitchell Unable to Fight.
Philadelphia, Dec. 0. Charley Mitchell, the
pugilist, is still at Atlantic City suffering from
two or three fractures of the bones of tho left
hand, tho pain of which he first felt two weeks
ago. An opcrat'.onlwas performed yesterday. It
consisted in loosening the tissues of the hand
and thus freeing certain nerves which were
bound down by an osseous formation. Ills physi.
clan says he will remain in Atlantic City until
the hand is well, adding, also, that the condition
of his hand would prevent his lighting any one.

Boston, Dec. 6. The news that Secretary
Bayard intended to send tho steamer Galena
to Iliiytl to doraand the restoration of tho
Haytian Ilepublio to her owners was taken to
tho office of B. 0. Mono & Co., agouti and
ownors of tho Haytian Repnblio, 30 Commer
cial street, by an EveSino Wobld roportor
thlB morning and tho tidings caused evident
pleasure, ituotnbsoluto joy, among tho men
in tho office.
"I had no idea what notion tho United
States intended to take," said Mr. Mortr,
" but from the tenor of the correspondence
which has passod between us, I felt euro that
our interests would bo protected."
' ' Are you willing to mako tho correspond,
ence publio ?" asked tho rcportor.
"Yes. And no. Bofaros wo.asowners.are
concerned, we havo no objection, but as wo
have placed tho matter in tho hands of tho Btate
Department and are awaiting results wo think
it would bo a breach of courtesy to dlvulgo
tho exact language and programme of tho let.
ters which have passed between us. Tho
Government is at present our attorney. Our
caso is in the hands of Kecrotary Bayard. Wo
do not feel like making a movo without his

was asked.
" Gladly. It has not been voluminous,
snd simply referred to what wo know about
the seizure. There was no argnmout outside
of a bare statement of facts."
" How many letters have passed ?"
"Ob, several. Hot ten or a dozen, but
several. Thoy wero all short and to the
point Of course, the first was a lotter from us
notifying tho Stato Department that our
steamer had been captured, and that we be
lieved such seizure to be unlawful and un
warranted Later wo were Informed that our
complaint would be investigated.
"After this several letters wero sent in
forming us how matters wore progressing. "
, " Did Secretary Bayard over express the
idea that tho capture of the Haytian repnblio
was a breach of international courtesy ?"
" Perhaps so, but not in those words. He
informed us that he did not rocognlzo the
Government of Gen. Legitime as tho ruling
power in Hayti, rod ho was, therefore, of the
opinion that the capture of our steamer was
an unwarranted violation of ihe laws of na
'"In other words, he thought yon had a
case against Hayti and thatjour vessel would
bo restored to you."
" We inferred as much from his letters;
still Sve will not say your conclusions aro
wholly acourate."
"Did he say that the United States recorj
nized any Government in HaytiT"
I do not remember that ho did. The
blockade put on by Gen. Legitime was not
known to tho Government at Washington,
nnd that foot alone was enough to mako our
claim good."
" What do you propose to do now, Mr.
" I propose to keen quiet nnd await the ao.
tion of the United States. I am very well
pleased with the way Secretary Bayard has
conducted affairs thus far. "
" Your agents in Now York say you intond
to bring suit against Hayti for damages. Is
it so ?"
"They wore not authorized to make any
such talk. It was wholly without our consent."
She Mnst Give Up the Illegally Seized
Steamer, Haytian llrpubllc,
nayti must givo up tho steamer Haytian Re

This is tho conclusion arrived at in the State
Department at Washington, and tho U. S.
corvetto Galena will, it is expected, be des
patched to Fort an Frlnco within tho day to
make the final demand for tho steamer's re
lease. Secretary Bayard decides that the validity of
the seizure and subsequent proceedings in tin
case of tho llaytlan Republic cannot bo ad

of the decision on Sunday, but it has Just been
made public. .

Not Clear Yet How Gambler Phil
Daly WaB Shot;
Addle and Ella Arraigned at
Jefferson Markot To-Day.
Tho Former Bays Bho First Know
Daly Four Years Ago.
Addle Slanion and Ella Hammond, in
whose Fourth avenue flat Fhll Daly was shot,
showed tho wear and tear of two nights in a
prison cell when an Evenino Woblp reporter
saw thorn in the West Thirtieth street station
house this morning.
Thoir faces wero wan and dirty-looking.
Thoir cloaks and dresses looked slovenly.
Their hats woro awry.
Their hair was rnmplod and Miss Stanton's
was of two colors, mud and golden yellow.
The first is tho original color of her hair.
Tho wash to produce the golden yollow can be
bought in any drng store. There had been
enough of it on aliss Stanton's tresses, bnt it
is gradually wearing off, and as it fades away
she looks less and less lovely.
In fact thoro is nothing of tho seductive
siren about cither her or Mrs. Hummond.and
pooplo are. asxing mora earnestly than even
' ' What did Fhll Daly see in such a woman as
Stanton is?"
That they wero well acquainted is the prev
alent opinion now.
Capt. ltoilly, in conversation with The
Evknino Wonu roprssontative to-day, said,
" My prirato opinion is thst Daly and Stan
ton were acquainted somo timo."
' What makes you think so ?''
" Many tilings that I have ditcovcrod and
put toguther, forming a chain of evidence
that is pretty strong. Stanton declares sho
know hlin well."
"What do you know of Stanton yourself,
' 1 know that she Is an ' angol.' "
"An angel;-that Is, tin Sixth avenue par
lance. The angels you h(ar of about tho
Haymarket and suoh plscos are vastly differ
out from those you aro told about in church.
Yon would never hear of Addio Stanton in
church. Sho is a woll-knowu angel on Sixth
avonno, though.
" She is tho guardian angol of wealthy old
men. That is, sho protects them from every
ono but herself and angels friendly to her."
" How long has slip been in this city ?"
" Four years. She came from the western
part of the State. Sho has been married
twice ond divorced once."
Tho Cuntain could not give tho names in
tho marrlago certificates which were found
by his dctectivos, along with n decree of di
vorce, in Addie's small desk. Ono of tho de
tectives, however, thought that Stanton was
the name of her first husband and Henry Lin
ston that of her second.
In addition to these natnos she was known
as Eltie Edgecombe when she occupied the
five rooms on tho third floor of the flat house
at 210 West Twentieth street.
While sh has ulwnys been noted for her
love for wealthy old men, she has been
equally noted for hor weakness for young
men. Ono or two of such havo always been
seen about her various residences, and wore
generally represented as being her brothers
or something.
When young men were scarce or fought
shy of her, she would go out looking for
them, and it was while on such missions that
she was arrested twice in raids made on a
conple of houses iu tho tenderloin precinct.
Then she opened a place of her own. but
that was raided and closed by the police.
She says that she met Phil Daly, sr., four
years ago. That is about the time Capt.
Iteilly says she camo to this city.
She was younger then, and not an " angel."
Good-looking, young moneyed men were
glad to know her for a while, and there was
an effort made to put her on the stage.
It did not succeed. Addio hss never been
on Ihe stage, unless in somo minor part for a
short time. Sho was fond of wine, high liv
ing and lino dresses, and never minded tho
cost as long as she got them.
When she became acquainted with the
lTamniond woman is not known exactly, but
it is supposed to be about a year and a half
ago, when Mrs. Hammond was keeping
house for a number of ladies in West Thirty
second street.
Both are very shrewd women.
They went into partnership.
They established a bureau of Information.
Men about town learned that Addle and
Nellie could tell just about how much a man
was worth, if he carried money, and if it was
easy to get it from him or not,
It is bcliovel that somo gamblers made use
of tho women as decoys to lure mon to their
gaming rooms. Howover this may lie, the
police theory is now that Daly and Stanton at
least wero acquainted.
He did not need to receive a note of invita.
tiou to visit her. lie vent voluntarily.
When he got thero he found another man or
traces of him in Miss Stanton's room. He
got mad.
Addle screamed for help. Llnston ,'and
Hammond rushed in from the inner room.
Home ono drew a pistol. A struggle for uos.
session of it ensued, and Llnston (Addie's
Irieud) got it
In the excitement of the moment he fired
at the old sport, whoso blood was up, and who
could easily havo whipped Hammond and
Llnston alone.
The bullet quelled his passion. Wliilo he
was groping at tho door trying to get out the
men loft by tho kitchen door, and got out
ahead of him.
Addie Stanton's hands are all scratched
and cut. She says sho burned them.
Mr. Daly denies positively that ho over
know her. An Evknino Woulu reporter
asked him: "Whero are tho letters the
woman sent you ?"
" Oh, I burned them up," he answered.
"The three of them?"
" Yes."
A giimbler, who ought to know, said i
" Daly tells it well, but I do not bellovo his
story. One thing I know U that the $30,000
in Government bouds that be said he had
wore only that amount of stock of a driving
park in New Jersey worth about fiftoen cents
on the dollar."
Mr. Daly scouted this statement.
The reporter met a young man this mom.
ing who told him that he had once answered
an ad in a newspaper, which said that a hand,
some young woman desired to make the ac
quaintance of a young man. Object matri
mony. Ho answered it and met Addio Btonton.
She dressed very well," he sold, " and was
a glib talker. She claimed to have Just ar
rived from Son Franoisco. She referred to it
as 'Frisco continually. She told me she ex
pected to go to London this December.
" She Bald Bho had been on the stage, and
had tho names of all the small actors and to
t resses by heart. She referred continually to
theBlalto. , ,
" Sho invited me to call at 819 West Twen
tleth street on tho 8th of September last, but
betore the time arrived I got a note from her
telling me sho was going to Long Branch to
teo n friend and would bo back on tho fol
lowing Monday."
When tho roporter attempted to interview
Miss Stsnton this morning Bho declared cm
phaticnlly: " I will not talk with you reporters. I have
nothing to say, anyhow, until I see my law
yer." "Who is he?"
She would not answer the reporter, but the
told Capt. Iteilly that his name was Le Bar
bier, of 36 Broadwoy. Soon after she and
Mrs. Hammond, escorted by Capt. Iteilly,
Dctectivo llrttt and TnE Evenino Womj re
porter, left the station-house. They boarded
a bobtail car at Seventh avenue and went to
Jefferson Market Polico Court.
Lawyer LoBarbier was thoro waiting for

Addle for somo timo.
" Wat she over on the stsgo ?"
' ' 1 guess sot I bolievo she wai."
" How long have you known her ?"
" Oh, I don't know."
" Whero was she living when you knew
her first ?"
" I've forgotten."
" Whero aid you last see her ?"
"Thlrty-eighth streut, I think."
"East or West?"
"West, I think. Yes, it must have been
' ' What was the number of the house ?"
' Boally I've foruotteu."
He promised tho reportor, however, that he
would get all the information ho could from
his client for tho press this afternoon.
Tho women wero arraigned before Justice
Gorman. Assistant Dlttrlot-Attorney Hart
man appoared for the people.
He had a note from Dr. Smith, of 20
West Thirtieth streot, stating that Mr. Daly
was too ill to leavo his house, and could not
do so before Friday at the earliest.
In view of thts Mr. Hart man naked to have
the case adjourned until then.
At first Lawyer LaBarbior wanted the esse
to go on, and askod for the ' ' discharge of
theso ladies."
Every ono smiled.
' ' What havo they done ?" asked the
This innocent question caused more smiles.
' ' If you insist on going on with tho case
now wo'H have the complaint drawn up, and
then you will Know what thoy havo done, if
you do not know," said Juttica Gorman.
" I am renly," said Mr. Le Barbler.
"Mako your complaint," said his Honor
to Detective Hayes.
Tho lawyer had n whispered consultation
with his clients, afternvhlch he retracted his
desire to go on, and tho case was set down
peremptorily for Friday morning at 8
There were a dozen Headquarters defec
tives in court, but not one of them could say
ho had ever seen Addle or her companion be
fore. Mr. Le Btrbier wantod to know if he could
not consult with his clients at the West Thlr
tieth street station-house.
Mr. Harlman said be hod no objection if
Sunt. Murray consented.
Thereupon Capt, Iteilly started for Head
quarters Coyiee It it could be arranged, and
tho lawyer said ho would bo at tho station,
house at i p. m. to find out.
The women were taken back to tbetr prison
cells, and another act in this mysterious, ro
mantic, puzzling drama was ended.
Who Will lie In Men. Harrison' Cabinet
Taking Hhape,
Gen. Harrison's Cabinet solution It beginning
to crystallize.
James O. Blaine hat arranged to take up lilt
residence in Washington, which is said to mean
that if lie is not to be Secretary of State he will
be the power behind tho throne and graud direc
tor of the new Administration's policy.
Vice-Chairman John S. Clarkson, of the Re
publican National Committee, Is pulling tin his
rnrixjU and tagging hit household effects Ior
Washington." and his Intimate friends in Des
llolnes say that he lias been onere,d and has ac
cepted the Secretaryship ot the Interior.
Next week Vicc-Protldeut-elect Levi P. Morton
will make the visit to Uen. Harrison, which Tiie
Evknino Worlo wat the first to announce.
Gen. Harrison hat been notified to expect Mr.
and Mrs. Morton on Wednesday of next week,
and the New York banker will remain with the
Harrison family for the balance of the week,
Mr. Morton will be the messenger who will
bear to Uen. Harrison the withes and desires of
the New York leaders and those of Mr. Blaine,
and when he leave the vexed question, who will
be New York' Cabinet rept esentatlve and w ho is
to peddle Federal patronage in the Empire
State, will be definitely settled.
Ex-Senator Piatt Is still looked npon as tho
Cabinet member. Mr. Morton is expected to
plead fur him and overoomo Clen, Harrison's
predilection in favor ot Wamer Miller.
(Jen. Harrison's known regard for Miller, and
his desire to reward him for his sacrifices in
aid of the National ticket lead the Herkimer
statesman's friends and supporters to believe
that ho will not be Ignored, however.
.Mr. Carter Insist That It' Not a Monop.
ol, Nor a Violation of I.avr.
Tho hearing In the case of Tho People against
the North River Sugar Refilling Company went
on tills morning before Judge Barrett, iu the
Supreme Court, Special Term.
James 0. Carter, counsel for the defendants,
coutlnned his argument. He said tho combina
tion of sugar refining companies was not in
tended as a monopoly for the manufacture of
sugar, or for the purpose of increasing the price
of It.
Sugar was a commodity that was only limited
by tho inability to manufacture.
The raw material wat unlimited in supply and
all that wat tcqulred for Its manufacture wtt
capital anil labor. There wero other commodi
ties that were by nature restricted iu supply,
and a combination to control such, for the pur
pose of increasing their alue, might come
under tho head of a violation of the law.
Sugar was not a necessary of life, Mr. Carter
argued, although It Is so generally used by peo
ple over all the globe that it might bo very
nearly so considered.

Tho woman will probably die.
