to havs been participated in by the law
yers, by Slrp. by Mr 81pp. by Howard
Hipp, and by the Inspector and captain,
all went under the name of McNulty.
One of the attorneys Is said to havs
declared to Hipp, In the presen'e of a
member of the District-Attorney's staff.
"Sspp, you haven't aald en) thing about
that money, have you?"
Srpp, It Is understood, said he had not
The suspicions of the Idstrtct-Attorney
were arouaed by the remark a l he be
gan examining sipp on thla phcae of the
matter, uncovering the bribe story, glpp
is said to have rsvealed hla at y to the
District-Attorney and to the John Doe
Orand Jury and a rigid Investigation
was at once begun.
The real cause of Slpp's snger towsrd
the police, together with the hurried
"underground communication of the po
lice, was revealed to-day.
Several months ago Slpp arranged, he
hae aald, with Policemen Fox to open a
disorderly hotel In One Hundred and Six
teenth street. He waa assured, he ha
told his friends, thsl hs wou'.d l-e glrgg
police protection upon the payment of
the proper "protection money." Acting
on thla belief, Sip, who Is worth more
than a quarter of a million dollars, ex
pended tW,000 In furnishing ths hotel.
He never waa permitted to open It. In
stead, he says, a prominent Harlem poli
tician, who ran a place In the Immediate
vicinity, aent word to high pollen OeMall
that Mpp must not open. Slpp's new
place waa kept closed.
Angered over the betrayal In favor of
the politician, Slpp wrote a long letter
to Mayor tlaynor. It Is understood, tell
ing him he was prepared to reveal Kraft
In Harlem Mayor Oaynor Immediately
answered Hipp, asking him to call at
once at ths City Hall Before Slpp
could make up hla mind to go he ana
approached by a police captain, he de
clares, with whom ha hod been very
friendly This captain eald hu hud b -en
sent by the Inspector to "call him off."
Slpp never responded to the Mayor's
Invitation to come down and reveal
graft, but he did write a letter to the
Inspector In question, telling hl.n he re
frained merely because of his friendship
for the captain. Copies of thla corre
spondence Is aald to be In the hands of
the Dlatrlct-Attorney.
That tha police are taking too deep
an Interest In the workings of the Dis
trict Attorney's office, is the charge
made to-day. Yesterday afternoon Mrs.
Thomas J. Dorian, wife of the missing
assistant manager of the Baltic Hotel,
formerly owned by Slpp, was sum
moned to the office of Assistant District
Attorney Oroehl. to be questioned as
to the whereabouts of her husband.
An Evening World reporter who saw
Mrs. Dorian snter Mr. Oroehl's office
saw Sergeant of Detectives John J.
Tail, who flret arrested Policeman Fox
at the order of Deputy Uommlasloner
Dougherty, lingering In the hallway
outside, and naked why he was there.
Tall replied that he was In the build
ing to appear before a grand Jury In
an automobile case.
The Dlatrlot-Attorney has learned,
however, that Talt disappeared from the
building aa soon aa Mrs. Dorian left,
and that last night Talt called upon
Mrs Dorian. It Is understood Talt will
ba summoned to the Dlstrlct-Attornsy'j
office and asked to explain iile activities.
Ths District-Attorney Is endeavoring
to ascertain ths real motive for Dorian's
disappearance after ha had charged that
hs, too, had paid protection money In
Harlem. Dorian had a fltOOO Intereat in
the Baltic Hotel and hla salary aa as
sistant manager was only 137.60 a week.
It haa been discovered that Dorlan'a sal
ary la sttll being paid evidently to Mri.
Dorian and that he had plenty of
money when he left New York.
An evening newspaper prints this
afternoon an Interview with Mayor
Oaynor la whloh ha aald he, personally,
garo tna order to have Oeorge .Hipp, the
aoouser of policemen arrested In Atlan
tic City. The Mayor said he had been
making Inquiries sifter firpp ran away
from Mia city and bad found that the
only way to bring him back was to have
him arrested. Hs was told by the Po
lice Commissioner that there were crim
inal charges against Slpp. and instruc
ted the Commtaeloner to press them
and, if poaalble to have 81pp indicted.
The purpose of the Mayor wae, tie ex
plained, to corrrpel Slpp to return to New
York and testify against Eugene Fox,
the policeman he accused of bribe tak
ing. In conclusion the Mayor Is quoted
ae saying:
"Thereupon a criminal charge was
made agatnat him, and Commlaeloner
Waldo caused htm to be arreeted In
Atlantic City and to be held awaiting
an Indictment. Some time afterward
tha District-Attorney eent one of his
assistants to Atlantic City, and Slpp
finally agreed to come back tn thla city.
An officer waa sent tn serve a subpoena
on him on hla arrival here to make
him appear aa a wltneaa on the trial
of tha policeman before the Iseputy
Police Commissioner. Hs was Inter
fered with and prevented from serving
the subpoena by the District-Attorney's
people. Why was that?
"Now, that Is the who'e case. If the
police wanted to set rid of Hipp they
certainly would not have followed hltn
