THE WORLD: WEDNESDAY EVENING, MAY 30, 1894. 6 ' PM
' , IS DODGE TO GET IT? x i AndrewB's Refusal to Open Bids Angora Othor Contractors. They Say It Is a Schomo to Shut Out All Fair Competition. Paper-Chasing n Specification for Trimming Scows. The refusal of Street-Cleaning Com v mlssloner William S. Andrews esterday to receive and open bids for trimming the city scows has caused considerable dissatisfaction among the dozen or more contractors who hoped to capture what is generally regarded ns one of the rich est prizes In the Department. Already tatements are being made that the Commissioner's refusal was In the In terest of one of his henchmen, and that ', the new specifications have been made .., out so that only one Individual can )Ni possibly hope to bid for the work. 5 At present the work of trimming the 4L- scows Is performed by Edmund Dodge, jS, who seems to have a remarkable ln- w fluence In the Department. He has been doing the work since the early part of last Winter on an agreement from week to week. He found scow trimming so , v t profitable that he was able to pay the ' city $1,360 a month for the privilege. Dodge Is the same man whose employ- . ment of extra laborers for Commls- --' sloner Andrews during the Winter's snowfnll caused so much unpleasant V k talk. For every extra laborer the city "' paid $1 BO per day, but the men whom Dodge hired through the padrone m li tem only got a dollar or a little over. Dodge might hae had the scow -trimming contract for years had not some j of the other contractors protested. They p pointed out to the Commissioner that the scow-trlmmlng was worth much more than the amount paid by Dodge, and that, In fact, by the retention of the latter the city was losing from JjOO to 1,000 per week. I Commissioner Andrews put the matter off apparently as long as he could, but on May 19 he advertised for proposals. The date Axed for the opening of the bids was csterday, and the hour 12 o'clock, noon. Over a score of bidders were on hand, and, although Bcarcely any of them had Been the specifications, they knew In n general way what wus required, and came with their written offers in their pockets. The Commissioner had stated that the specifications could be seen at his office, but, as a matter of fact, few were allowed to Inspect them. i Whether or not Commissioner Andrews was afraid his friend Dodge would lose the contract, certain It is that at the last moment he changed his mind as to the opening of the bids To the waiting contractors he said that new specifica tions would be made out for the scow trlmmlng contract, and that the bids, according to the new specifications, would not be opened until June 12 The new specifications called for made the conti actors fairly weep. They provid- ed, among other things, that contractors must keep the water of the bay cl' .r of ka paper and other articles. In other ords, L It la practically insisted upon that ivhen- lt ever the wind happens to blow a quantity of stuff from the scows while on their 1 way to the dumping ground a boat's crew must get out and chase It. That at least was the construction put upon It by Anthony Mollnelll, one of the men wno was anxious to bid for . the work. Mr. Mollnelll's office Is at E City Hall place, and when seen by an "Uvenlng World" reporter he said: "Yes, the man who gets the contract must practically have a row boat to fol low the scows and chase up every scrap of paper that falls oft. I cannot under stand why such specifications were made out, unless It be to compel con tractors to figure too high, and by that means allow the faored one to get the contract. Mr. Dodge has the contract now, and apparently the scheme Is to have him keep It. All I can say Is that every other man Is willing to bid much more for the work. "It Is n curious fact," odded Mr. Mo llnelll, " that of Til the men who vvetc ready to bid jesterdny, Mr. Dodm was the only one absent from Commissioner Andrews's oltlce. As a matter of fact, he was the only man who knew beforehnnd that the new specifications would be culled for He Is the same Mr Dodge who was named In connection with the last Hiker's Island sentuHl He was, vnder his contract, supposed to do all the dumping Inslle the crib-work at the Island, lie was caught In the act of dumping It outside Anbody could do that kind of dumping for nbout four cents a load. "The new specifications will not on their face favor Mr. Dodge more than nn)body else, but everybody knows how such things are arranged. In the firm place the Intention seemingly Is to frighten oft the other blllers. If Dodge succeeds In getting the contract, which by the way Is for one ear, he can com ply with the speculations or not, Just as he likes I guess the supervision ever his work will not he great "Commissioner Andrews, nfti"1 adver tising for bidders, said the specifications could be Been nt his ofllcc uy any one who wanted to look at them. As n mat ter of fact, I called there over hsir a dozen times and necr was allowed to get near them." In this connection a peculiar story was told yesterday. It was to the effect that on Monday night Contractor Dodge, Mr. Caponlgrl, of Mulberrv street, who supplied Dodge with nearly all of his "extra" men laRt Winter, and n high official of the Street-Cleaning Depart ment, were seen nt Itlccadonna's res taurant, Scenteenth street and Union Square, In close confab. Next day at noon new specifications for the scow trlmmlng contract were called for. Mr. Dodge was not present, nor was there any bid from him on the first specifica tions. Meanwhile the city Is losing between J500 and J1.000 per week. What does It all mean? .ten Vlrtlm of llouseclennlnpr. (From Pearaon'a Weekly) Missionary Was It liquor that brought you to this?

If HIS NAME CLEARED. A Memorial Day Incident in Which i Love Is a Factor. v-V (Written for "The Evening World" by Henry A Dayton ) WW It Is a glorious May day morning J Memorial Day morn the Impressive sea- l' ! ion when all the loyal sons and daugh ters of this land of the free, amid soul ful strains fiom appropriately attuned Instruments and eulogistic oratory, re ! pair reverently to the thousands of I green-sodded cemeteries of the land, wherein lie. In honored graves, all that remains of the gallant boys who fought I and died that these United States , might be a union, one and undivided, and there strew the sacred hillocks with beautiful, swcct-smelllng flowers and J sympathetic tears. There Is to-day one fumble mound In,, an unpretentious spot of a most magnificent as well as historical cemetery within the confines of a city In this Stnte whose lowly occupant had much to do with this thrilling army v tale, that must touch, with the tender- est sentiment, the hearts of many a gal- lant Q. A. n. boy. There beBlde the humble mound, kneeling, tearful, praerful, her beauti ful, pale face touched with pain, Is the pretty, diminutive figure of a oung girl whose summers and winters have scarcely numbered eighteen. Underneath the plain sodded grave de- void of Cowers, sae a few dandelions m and sweet clover blossoms scattered here LV and there, are the remains of him whom V Edith Haines once called her father, now H dead these ten years H DonaM Haines had gone to the war H and bravely battled there for his country, H Ho had even won grateful commendation H from his old Colonel when, one day at H the bloody conflict at Chlckamaugi, he M had courageous dashed down the up- H lifted sabre of a Confederate cavalryman S who was about to cleave In twain that VS officer's head. And when the Impetuous (Hi cavalryman, burning with passion over H 4 his defeat, rode upon the Colonel the sec- BH ond time It was Donald Haines who ran m the Confederate through with his bayonet H and laid him quivering and dving at the H old soldier's feet. H But this all occurred before the dark, H terrible blot cams Into his Itfe-a b'.ot so H dark and overpowcrlngly degrading that H the shame of It changed In a night the H raven-like locks of Donald Haines and H likened them unto the whiteness of the H flowing beard of the patriarch. H , There wa.3 one man In the regiment H whose hatred for Capt. Haines was un- H concealed, and he was I.leut. Hardman H Catton, attached to the same compsny. H When boys at, college together H that hatred first found existence and H blossomed out most Intensely, And B when, several years later, Donald led to H the hymeneal alter pretty Ellen Qrey, the breach was tendered broader and K , Cation's enmity moro deeply Intensified. H Catton had been Donald Haines's rival H r for the pure affections of Jillin, and H When he realized that he had been tossed isLitj'M'Tss'':' aside, like a useless tirk by the voung girl, his wrath was teirlble to Mtncss. In those days Hardman Catton had fiercely sworn that his successful rival should yet live to see the day when he would sorely repent for having crossed his pathway. Hardman Catton did not remain un married long. Within a year after Don ald had married, strangely enough, he took for his bride an estimable young woman. Hut there was no love lost In the match on Cntton's part, and It was a pretty well-established fact that he had secured a better wife than he had deserved. What It was that had Influenced gen tle Anna I.ajne to cast her lot with such ns Haraman Catton had been a puzzling mjstery that her friends were unable to solve. And In the course of years they arrived no nearer to a solu tion of the problem. Only poor Anna I l.nyne knew, and she well, poor girl, she died broken-hearted, these many years ago When the immortal Lincoln called for volunteers to march to the front, the summons to duty had been responded to with commendable promptltude.Donnld Haines had klsced his wife and tiny biby girl a fond good-hy, shouldered his musket and boldly stepped into the ranks. And Hardman Catton. too. had gone to the front, not as a private, but as an officer Lieut. Catton Three ears of service In camp and on hsttlptio'ri wrought many chinges In Donald Haines's life, for In that period he had w n by brilliant conduct u cip. talncy, while Catton still remained a llntenant Again was the litter out stripped. Once he had commanded Capt. Haines, now he was subordinate to him. T.ierc was a little gathering In Col. Stroke's tent on n Saturday night. The regiment was to move at dav break of tho morrow, md Capt Halne, I.leut 1 Catton, Sergt. Jack Stickles and several i other officers had been discussing the order of mirch with the Colonel for the next day. The matter ended. Col. Stroke passed the canteen around, and then a game of cards was suggested by Sergt. Stickles Jack Stickles was a favorite with al most every one In his company, and par ticularly was he a favorite with the old Colonel, "Go ahead, boys, and have your fun, hut let me out, Col, Stroke said, "I'm too old a stick for you joung chaps to bother with'" "Oh, now, Colonel!" cried Sergt. Stickles, with energy; "we can't play without you. Bnd well, sir, we won't, eh, boys, will we?" turning to the others and laughing merrily. And glad of the opportunity, Col. Stroke, with a happy light In his eyes, sprang quickly over to the corner of his tent and drew from the pocket of his roit a pack of cards, "I thouyht that we might need 'em, boys," said he, "and so I Just laid a pac't or two In for an emergency of this kind "Here, Serct Jock," went on the Col onel, handing the deck to Stickles, "cast that weather eye of yours over these pasteboards and see If they're all there. And mind you, you young rascal, don't sieeve any of 'em," "Ah I now, Colonel, you're too hard on a voor fellow. I'm as honest as a red k(n," was the merry sally that Sergt. Jack fired at Col. Stroke In return. "Why. I'm lmply n paragon of honesty. I'd stick a card Just as loon as, say MURDERED SIXTY YEARS AGO.

HEADFIRST DOWN A SHAFT. Tlit I)l-.tiincc W Only Ten Iet, mill tirtiuil Wns Not mi Acrobat. Louis Ornnd, a painter, nineteen jears old, living nt SO Clinton street, while at work painting In the elevator shift of tho Tox Ilulldlng, on IVankfort street, at 8 o'cloik this morning fell ton feet and sustained a sevtre scalp wound. Not withstanding the short dlstnnce of the fall tin 1 the fact that the mm wiib not an acrobat, he wuit down the shaft head first nnd became wedirol In be tween the elevator and the side of the building. A "hurry" call for nn ambulance wns turned In by Otlleer Masterson, of the Oak street st itlon, but although the Chambers Street Hospital Is within five minutes' walk, It took exvetly thlrty-flvc minutes for the ambulance to reach the sceno of the accident. JACOBS'S BODY FOUND. lip Unit rnllen from (he Pndillo llox of n IVrr-l!iint. The body of Trank Jacobs, twenty four jenrs of age, was found drowned nt Clifton, S. I., this morning. He had been at work on the Stntcn Island ferry bout Mlddletown on Monday last, and was supposed to have been painting one of the wheels Inside the paddle-box. His absence was not noticed until vesterday, when his hnt and coat were found neur the spjt where he was last Been alive. The water In thu vicinity wns dragged with grapnels nnd the body hauled up It Is Bald that two other men who were at work on the Mlddletown on the opposite paddle-wheel at the same time narrowly escaped drowning.

N.Y All Druegltta well well as Hard Catton over there, for Instance!" . , , Jack Stickles turned to Lieut Catton as he spoke, and was about to follow his words with another Jocular remark, when he was Burprlsed to see Catton's face suddenly grow ashen with anger. The latter's devilish nature showed Itself the next Instant in a manner that was least expected "Do sou mean that Insult fox me, Stickles?" Catton roared, angrily. "Hy the eternnl God, If ou do. iou'11 have to answer to me, do you hear?" This precipitation of a quarrel on the part of Lieut Catton wns without the least provocation. Dvcry one there, with Ferhaps the exception of Catton, had ully understood the Jest contained In Strgt. Stlckles's thoughtless speech, ut tered on the spur of the moment, without meditation Tor a moment an ominous silence reigned. Not a word was spoken. All were dumfoundod over Lieut Catton's unexpected outburst. As for Sergt. Stickles, he had been rendered speech less with surprise. Hr wns Incapable at first of a proper conception of the situation Hail he In sulted Catton? No! Had he Intended to Insult him? Of course he had not! The llery spirit of the Impetuous young soldier arose to the occasion It had been better If his next hot words had been well weighed before spoken. With the hot blood blazing In either cheek nnd the light of righteous In dignation burning In his flashing eyes Sergt. Jack turned on the Lieutenant. "Cntton, vou're n scoundrel'" he said, with suppressed passion. "I apologle to you' It Is jou who must answer to 'me, or I'll thrash jour carcass without mercy!" A round table stood between the two officers, hut that mattered not. The fiendish temperament of Catton under the excitement of the moment would leud him to do ans thing rash and III ndvlsed Muttering a curse, he rushrd nt Stickles and struck him full In the , face Col. Stroke, who. up to this time, hnd been overcome with astonishment nt the proceedings, now sprang between the two men and struck Catton a savage blow upon his arm as he wns In the net of drawing his sword from Its scabbard to cut down Stickles, who was unarmed I The spirit of a (lend Incirnate seemed 1 to have taken possession of Catton In his rage he had lost sight of the fact that he wns In the presence of his supe rior officers There was murder unmis takably written In his impassioned vis ape and In the uslv flashing of his eyes With an natn he whirled upon Col.

Jack Stickles hnd been unable, nfter groping nbout, to And the one which had been overturned m the scuffle Capt Haines reached th Rtruggllng men and Joined In the fray In order to save the one from doing gilevous In Jury to the other. He caught one nf the men, whom he supposed to be Lieut Catton. nbout the throat with both hands and closed upon It with a mighty pressure. "Loose your hold on Col Stroke'" he rrled hoarsely, "or I'll throttle you to death!" But there was no reBponse from Cat ton, and still the struggle between the three officers continued It was only n moment, yet It Beemed like nn eternity to Donald Hnlnes that he battled with th" man In his grasn. and then It slid denly grew dark nnund him In the terrific struggle he had struck his head against the corner of the overturned table, and the shock had rendered him unconscious. The last rational thing to flash across his brain was the knowledge that he was choking, choking, choking to death Hardman Catton. The dnrkness wns slowlv dispelled. Sergt. Stickles and the other officers hsvlnr returned with a light. Donald Haines regained consciousness, i KICKED ALMOST TO DEATO. Elizabeth Waters Dying in Hospi tal from a Brutal Beating. Assaulted by nn i:-Conlrt for Not GlvtiiR Up a Kins. Policeman Whenton, of tho Hast One Hundred and Fourth street station, heard the screams of a woman on liast Nlnety-suventh street at 3 o'clock this morning.

She had given the ring to some one else, nnd Itussell, falling to get It, committed the iisiiault. Hussell Is a strong, nble-bodlid man, with a very bnd reputation The police say he served two sears In Sing Sing I'rlson for Mealing, and linn also served time terms of three months each for beating women.

Hut for the effective work of the Fire Department this morning the flames which started at 6 30 o'clock In Simon Kllnger's chnlr works, at 31 South Fifth avenue, would have been a most de structive blaze. The building is filled with dry, well-seasoired wood, which burned quickly, but energetic work kept the flames under control Henri DelU, the watchman of the building, illscovtred the flames In the varnish room, on the fourth floor, nnd Bent out nn alarm When the firemen responded the lire hnd crept up an air shaft Into the rooms occupied by Au gustus Frank, a woodturner. A line of hose wiih quickly run up the stairs within the building, while it stc ond wns carried up n ladder outside. On either Bide of the building are tall tenement-houses Fortunately, the Arc wits at nn hour when almost uvtrjbody waH up nnd about. Few people left the tenements, contenting themselves with wntchlng the work of the llre-flghters from the windows. The damage was trlllinir. VVlint Worried Jllm. (Prom tho VVaihtiifitnn Star) "What do lou think of the fruit crop this sear?" said the man In the ears. "The fruit crop!" repeated the base ball plnjer whom he nddreBsed. "That don't worry me.

Ui i the genuine 1HI Hroiulttay,. but his eyes opened only to be filled with unutterable horror. There, within it ftw Inches of hlB own eyes, was the black ened, distorted face of Col. Stroke, his eyes glaring nnd bulging from their sockets, nnd Donald Haines saw that1 his hands were clasped about a dead i man's throat. Col. Stroke had bten I throttled to death and Lieut. Catton was nowhere to be Been! I Paralszed with the awful situation, Donald lay like one bereft of reason. Nor did those who gazed with horror stricken eyes upon the terrible scene be fore them lift their vision until there was heard a wild uncanny cry that sounded as If n death-knell were being uttered and echoing far out Into the night. Then Donald Haines was seen to spring to his feet, and from his lips arose a wall whose cadence was like unto that of a lost soul's. And then, the awful cry terminated In a demopncnl veil Donald Haines wns a raving, gib bering maniac! It wns apparent to all that he had killed the man he Idolized, nnd the knowledge of the deed had driven him mad. They gazed upon him In amaze ment and awe, for a mights transforma tion had occurred. The black hair of Donald Haines hnd In a twinkling turned Into the whiteness nf the driven snow. The remnlnder of this portion of the story is quickly told. Capt. Hnlnes was adjudged guilty of causing the death of Col. Stroke by the tribunal before which he was taken. It was decreed that he should spend the rest of his natural life In the State Insane Asylum, situated In the Utv where he met nnd married his wife, and scarcely n stone's throw from whero she at the time of his terrible affliction lived. Lieut. Catton returned home nfter the war with nn honorable discharge from service In his pocket, to loin his wife and soung son Harry, born shortly nfter the beginning of the con flict. It wnB vnstly different with the un fortunate wife of Donald Halms She overshadowed by the dreadful blight which had come Into her life, dwelt In her humble cottage lumpelled to cam the bread nnd clothing which she nnd Killth ate nnd wore The last mnd and unaccountable net nf her, brilliant husband, whom Bhe so dearly loved, had deprived htr of any support which she might have letelvnl from the (lovernment More than nil tlse, was the bitter trial that came to Mr, Halms when, n few years later, she laid Donald In his brave The sorrowing widow nnd daughter were the only ones of nil the great mini ber that once smiled on Donald Hnlnes, who fillnwed Ills body to the grave No, that Is not true, there was one other who attended that doublv-sor-rowful duty to the dead It wns Hnrry Cntton, rrtiwn now to bo a noble south, filled with the same sweet spirit which had characterized his gentle motlu r when alive. Mrs Catton had died n few months previously, but ho bail often mentioned to him the circumstances of Donald Haines's sad life At his mother's fu neral, Harry Catton hnd observed the pretty, "vmpathetle face of Hdlth Haines Hut, then, too. he remembered that Col Catton, who had acquired the lank of it colonel since leaving th war, hnd pointed out the young girl nnd hail worned his son to avoid the daugh ter of a man who was but little better than a murderer "I warn you, Harry." Col Catton had said, severely, "not to mingle sour life In any way with that family Your's nnd that of Donald Haines s family He I In altogether different channels I need not mention this again, my son'" Hut the wnrnlng had operated cx . actly tho reverse Harry's ssmpathetlo I nature went out In great measure to the sorrowing Mrs Haines and her pretty daughter, with tho ever care worn expression resting upon her young face.

And there he learned from ths clrl more of the story relating to the life of poor Donald Haines.
