MERCHANTS AS VICTIMS. .VA NTPaUD the police mose! X DOZEN* OF THEM TESTIFY TO THIS BR* FORE THE LEXOW COMMITTEE. :>NE CAPTAIN HAI) TO PAY I I.V OOO FOR BBS A*** FUINTMENT. HIS WAHI) MAN SAID?CAPTAIN STHPHHNSn.VS RAME RROt'f-HT IN HY His SUBORDINATE?PVT* TY KXTuRTlON. Cumulative testimony about th? extortion practised by the police .in merchants who aro SOUP lied lo use the sidewalk in receiving and ?hipping goods was given before the Lexow Com uitt.e yesterday. A doses persons said they pajrments to avoid being c,ntlnu..lly ar? rested and fined. He Lancey Nicoll tried to make out that the witnesses had bribed officers -i * to do th'*lr duty. In the apparent hope that If iwo crimes were committed, one would cancel tho itber. Some of the me.-chants thought that they had violated the city ordinance, but others de *lared that they had nd. As one man put lt: 'It was pay or get ont of business." Anyway, io reas mable man can now doobt that the polios m the lower West Side collected large sums of ii .ney annually from reputable merchants. In anne Instances the names of the ward men who collected the envelopes containing the money .vere given, but oftener they were not. Mr. Goff la continually striving to show what became of :hc cash, and yesterday two trttnesoss helped lim to do this. Cine of these was reproved by tho ward man for not putting Ms business card n the envelope. "If you don't d*> that," said the -tollcemsn, "how can the captain know whether i-ou've paid cr not?" The captain referred to ,va.i Stephens in, under whose administration In the Leonard-st. precinct there was a sharp ad i ana-.- In rates. It may have been the same ward man who had i significant colloquy with another witness. This nerchant was always ready to give the police aU they wanted. Ile even expects to continue hie -tayments in spite of the disclosures before thi _exow Cmmlttee. After a change .-if captalni n the Leonard-st stations, the witness suggested ? ) the ward man that the police were hogs. "X i, we are not." th- p..Ile.-man assured him 'The captain has got to raise **l."..(n)0 very Boon ?That's what he paid fir his appointment." This wari man, by-the-way, makes his col* actions regularly in January and July, and ilwaya on th- Hr**- | of the m-inrh.

He lub.ldised every policeman in thc bast, to avoid r uible about the packing cas?s on the sidewalk, .aylng ab. it $100 a year In this way. The testimony to-day will be in a different line, t is promised. -? C UM I' L A Tl I E E VI Dh A t E. .
