Anothor dive-keeper, the fourth during the
week, has tacitly admitted tho righteousness
or Thi Evenino World's crusade against the
outlaws ot New York and the truthfulness of
Its descriptions of tho orgies for which their
dons hare becomo notorious by closing his
resort during certain hours ot the night, and
by "toning down" the performances, Im
promptu and otherwise, that hare long been
features of the place.
This man Is Proprietor Scribner, of " The
Flckwlck." The change has been wrought
not by moral suasion, but by a wholesome
fear or the laws he and the other outlaws had
so long violated with impunity. And this
fear The Etenino World Inspired.
Proprietor Scribner closed his resort before
IS o'clock last night, and the habitues were
hustled out to find shelter elsewhere. This
action followed close after that takon by
Honest " John Kelly.
When Tin Eteninu World's search-light
was turned upon Mr. Kelly's triplicate den at
blxth avenue and Thlriy-tlrst street bo
promptly realized his danger and closed his
assignation annex and gambling hell alto
gether, and has Unco conformed to tho ex
cise regulations with regard to bis bar
room. Jim McCormtck, whose dire Is almost next
dcor to Kelly's, hoped to profit by Honest "
John's embai rassment. He did for ono night,
and then the light was turned upon his re
sort, llo bos since found It expedient to
follow 11 r. Kelly's lead In closing the assigns-tlon-rooms
back of his saloon.
Frank Stevenson was thu third outlaw to
realize his danger. His blnk of Iniquity on

Mr. Carey Welcli, propilctor of "The Hole

Farley's Hotel; the Livingston brothers, pro
prietors ot the Exclso Kxchnngo, and a few
other outlaws still crntlnue to run their dives

overtaken them Is evident by the changes
made to glvo a seointug of respectability to

Bcenos Enacted nt tho Infamous
1 Sllclo " Are Dupllcdtod Here.
Mr. C.irey Welch, proprietor of "The Hole
lu lug Wall," at 117 Fourth nvenue, was
highly elated last nlglit at what he was
plenum toieiin u vindication of the character
orhl tlaci. Mi. tNil'lirviciri'd to the ai rest
of J c(iulne 1 1 e ami Mar) Dily, of "."-'8
East 'lrrnt).i.iiitli street, win were

J'JHphC. Il.lll, Wiljl.iet tU'U In '1 Uo Ilcle
In the Wall " on 'I uesday nuht. The women
secured a Scotch verdict ot not pi ov en " and
were discharged. I
Mr. Welch gave h!j word of honor to his
guests that these women were ns Innocent of
tho theft as on tho ti ty they were born, but
at the same time he lsucd an ordi r to his
bouncer " not to let them d unes In the pl-icc
again." " It's a downright shame that Mamla
and Josle have been barred out. It ain't a
square deal. They bring men In here and
make 'em spend tnelr money, and Welch
ought to stand by them when they're In
trouble," remarked a sympathizing "lady"
friend Indignantly to her companion.
" They'll stand In with you when you go
through a bloko, and the) 'II take their dlvvle,
but when you're caught they've got no use
for you, and If you haven't got any other
friends to tho pen you go. It's the last time
I'll come In this place." And out she went,
After tho aong came a dance, then a selec
tion on the piano and violin. Some of the
women became drunk, and a party ot them
then entered into a hlgh-klcklng contest,
using their companions' bats as targets:
Go It,"
" Higher."
' That's the stuff."
Don't be afraid."
The creatures were urged on by remarks
Hko these until they sank exhausted on the
Door. Then they were dragged to one side
and left to themselves to sober up.
Similar scenes could be witnessed In " Jim "
Sullivan's assignation annex last night. Miss
Daly and Miss Frlese were not barred from
Mr. Welch's former partner's den. They were
there, the star guests ot the evening.
Another Infamous den which was open last
night was tho Excise Exchange, 330 Ilowery,
wnlch Is a duplicate In infamy of Mr. Frank
btevenson's Slide. Tho samo class of aban
doned and depraved beings frequent It.
The license ot the place is lu tho namo ot
one Davis, who is also the manager. Ned and
111 Livingston are the real financial backers
of the place, and to the Initiated they are
known as Its proprietors.
Like Stevenson, tho Livingstons have made
money enough out ot their trafllo of vice and
Kin to spread their Iniquity, and they aro
said to be the owners of a new dive Just
opened on the Bowery, which Is managed by
a man named Stokes. The latter wastormcrly
associated with Davis In the management of
tho Excise Exchange.
In sltuatlou thli low resort differs some
what from other dives. Ills a double-docker
that Ij, It has an upstairs anuex. It Is
reached from tho street through a barroom
and by a slJe door. The asslguatlon-roora Is
tcparated from the barroom by a glass parti
tion, which also shields It from prying eyes
on the stieet; not that any attempt Is made
to hide tho shameless doings within. Iho
I object Is to attract people Inside and Induce
them to spend tlielr money.
As soon as a Msltor enters, and almost be-
I f oi e he Is seated, a waiter In shirt aleeves
I strides up to him and asks: Well, old man,"
or, as the case may bo or as fancy miy olc-
late, " youiu fellow, what'b It guing to be?"
" Draw one," tho waiter shouts nlth all his
might to the barkeeper. And similar cries,
mingling with the banging of the piano, the
twunglcg of u banjo, tho ribald songs and
tho loud talk and laughter of tho people at
the tables make of the place a Udlam.
Davis, tho manager, sits behind the
cashier's desk and Is kept buy making
change foi a half dozen waiter. Still, he
has time to look up lio and then to greet
some dissolute woman Just arrived.
The "atti actions" at tho fcxclie Exchango
' aro not tho women, but the tlacs of men who
Irequcr.t it. Tney Imlfile tho diess and
manners of women paint their laces and e)c

While buslLessis alnajs rushing at the
Excise Exchange, at present Its olumolias

Mr. Frank i-tevenson's "Hide."

Sec If she Isn't. There's more money In this
place for them than there Is In Sullivan's,"
said a waiter after the angry one had gone.
Shouts of '-Song I bongl" came In chorus,
accompanied by stamping of feet and pound
ing ot tables with beer glasses, and the
waiter changed from prophecy to song. For
a wonder, tho song was less vllo than those
usually sung here, and disgust was plainly
apparent on tho faces ot most of bis auditors.
They wanted something highly spiced with
nastlness. Like the beer In the place, songs
ot the sort to suit their deprmed tastes had
always heretofore been on tap tor customers.
"This town's getting altogether too good
to suit me," said one tough. "I thought
Welch had more nerve than tne others, but

HII"TU cxy a c Exchange :
The place Is frequented by the same painted,
abandoned men and women, the surroundings
are the samo and thu conversation quite as .
low and vulgar.
The proprietors know that they are running i
a dive In every respect as bad as Stevenson's,
and they suspected that The Evfniso
World's oxpose of tho outlaws of New York
would not be completo without an account of
the doings in their den.
so, for the sake ot appearances, they closed
early last night, or, rather, at 1 o'clock this
Dullness lu tho Excise Exchange does not
begin usually until midnight, aud this early
closing movtment means a big dincreuco
In profits to tho proprietors, but Buch
action was expected by tho habitues, who I
had read ot The Evemmi Worids deter
mination to rid New l ork of its outlaws.
It n as confidently predicted that the dire
would nol be opened at all to-night.
This Is understood from a remark made by
Manager Davis, who Is reported to have said
to a friend :
"1 don't know what we will do, but I'm
afraid that Evening World Is too much for
us and that we'll have to shut up shop just
like Stevenson, Kelly and Mccormick."
Mr. Scribner, of the " Pickwick Club " dive,
1347 Broadway, is still defiant, but his law
less conduct Is not gaining much support.
The men and women who frequent the as
signation annex have been In contact with
the law often enough to know that nothing
can be gained by openly def j lng It. 1 hey ex-'
pect a police raid at any lime, and therefore
absented themselves last night. There vvcro
not more than a dozen people lu tho back
room at any time, and as there was no gamo
to pluck these habitues left early.
Shortly after 11 o'clock tho lights wero
turned down and no ono was admitted alter
11 closed, by Jlmlnec I" exclaimed ono ot
two young men who fouud tho door locked
before mtdnlgbt. " I told you so. I knew
he'd have to close, too."
Speaking of the licenses under which the
dives are conducted, President Meaklm, of
tho Excise Hoard, said to a roporter :
" I hav e aln a s voted against the granting
of a license to tho place known ns Tno
Slide,' but havo been outvoted by my associ
ates in tho Board. The applicant tor tho
license was John McGrew. Ho It an iceman,
and I do not believe ho has an) thing to do
with tho place be end selling Stevenson Ice.
"1 am ready at ny time to conlcr with tho
Dlstrtct-Attnrpey as to the best method to
obtain evidence against 'the Mldo' or any
other similar dive. I am now and always
havo been In favor of the ono man power In
oxclso matters. Ono man should bo given
tho whole say as to who should have licenses
and be made wholly responsible for tho ie-
suit. The present system Is not conducive to
the best results."
