Lewis Nixon and his colleagues of the Tammany
Vlca Committee found an admirable opportunity a
few days ago to bolster up the pose they have
taken of being the only real purifiers In the city.
That opportunity they made the most of. In a
morning newspaper yesterday there appeared a
graphic description of how Mr. Nixon, stalking into
the office of Acting Chief Cortrlght. flaunted a list
of some forty or fifty gambling houses and pool
rooms in the face of the man who Is talcing Chief
Dcvery's place, and insisted that they be closed
within twenty-four hours. "Mr. Nixon, it is im
possible." Cortright was related a* saying, where
upon Mr. Nixon thundered: "It Is not impossible,
and It must be done!"
Cortright tremblingly whimpered, according to
the impression given by the story, that he would
consult Chief Devery about the matter. Here was
another opening for thunder. "You will consult no
one!' Mr. Nixon Is alleged to have stormed. "You
will close those places within twenty- four hours! 1
Again Cortright is presumed to have whimpered
and to have pleaded for more time to carry out the
orders of the august Mr. Nixon, who magnani
mously consented to grant' a further twenty-four
hours' peace.
•Very well." he Is said to have replied. It is
now 5 o'clock and this is Wednesday afternoon. I
shall expect that these houses be closed by 5 o'clock
on Friday afternoon."
A pretty story. Indeed were It true! Any one
who knows Deputy Chief Cortright is not likely to
be deceived into the belief that he would permit
himself to be bulldozed in this fashion by a mem
ber of Tammany's discredited and make-believe
purifiers. Cortright himself denied yesterday that
any such conversation as reported took place be
tween him and Lewis Nixon. It is true that Mr.
Nixon handed him a list of gambling places wnich
he requested should be closed, but that request was
not made In the authoritative and threatening man
ner that was depicted in the newspaper which pub
lished the purported interview. Politicians who are
close to Tammany's counsels thoroughly under
stand the motives which swayed the so-called \ Ice
Committee in desiring to have certain gambling
houses closed. Of late complaints have been lodged
with the gambling commission— the men who collect
the levies from the gambling house keepers, and
without whose permission a game cannot be run
In this city— there is too much competition.
It was told that there were too many nouses
in operation to make the business as profitable as
It might be. Paying heed to the protests the com
mission decided to close forty or fifty of the smaller
places, In order to increase the revenues of the
larger ones. The list handed to Deputy Chief Cort
right contained the names of the smaller fry thus
selected for immolation. This, it can be stated
upon competent authority, is the true explanation
of Mr. Nixon's visit to Headquarters on Wednes
day. The Tammany Vice Committee merely sought
to make a show of virtue out of what was entirely
a matter of me salty so far as they were con
cerned. Apart from the few that were sacrificed,
gambling houses were running as usual yesterday.
It was reported yesterday that Bernard I. York,
president of the Police Board, Intended to prepare
charges against Chief Devery. The charges, it was
•aid. would be based upon the illegal transfers of
Deputy Chiefs McLaughlin and Clayton and upon
Insubordination. Mr. York's proposed action, it
was added, had been prompted by and would have
the support of the Brooklyn Democratic machine.
When Mr. York was seen by a Tribune reporter
last night he declined to discuss the report. "I will
not say one word about police matters. " was the
only reply he would make to various inquiries that
were put to him. With regard to the alleged Cort
right and Nixon encounter, he said he knew noth
ing about it beyond what he had read.
Chief Devery was seen at his home yesterday
afternoon, but he refused to talk with reporters.
KMr. Nixon said last ev^ningt^
Yes. I did give Acting Chief Cortright a list of
forty-eight gambling houses, with a request that
they be closed at once. I did not order Mr. Cort
right to close them, nor did I use the breezy lan
guage which a morning paper has accredited me
with using. I simply placed my dat» In his hands,
and said I relief upon him to relieve the city of
these dens as soon as he could arrange to do so.
I have the greatest faith In Mr. Ccrtright's probity
and ability, and so left the matter entirely in his
hands. I also suggested that word be sent imme
diately to Chief Devery that such a move was
• contemplated. I did this because I wished that
every one concerned 6ho«ld toe fully cognizant of
the action we were about to take.
It Is a mistake to belifcve-fflat my action created
' consternation at Headquarters. My Instructions
have been taken seriously from the moment that
Tammany Hall announced that gambling should
no longer exist in this city as a recognized institu
tion. The police have worked faithfully since the
anti-vice announcement was made, and there has
(been no "bluffing" whatsoever. The police of New-
York City are among the best disciplined forces In
F the world, and the people of the metropolis have
every reason to feel proud of them. Silently and
surely, for several weeks, we have closed up gam
bling houses and poolrooms, until now I am confi
dent that none of the proprietors will have the
temerity to defy us longer. Instantly these houses
are discovered they will be closed at once and for
good. It is too bad that our efforts have received
publicity, because now It will be harder for us to
uncover these few remaining lawbreakers.
I cannot publish the list of the forty-eight gam
bling houses and poolrooms, with the names of the
proprietors, which I gave to Mr. Cortright last
Wednesday afternoon. We do not care to make
these men known until we are sure that the people
of this city will co-operate with us in exterminat
ing them. It we were sure that we would be
help- 1 and not Interfered with we would publish
the iirt In question.
The forty-eight gambling houses have been closed,
as far as the committee has been able to ascer
tain. Oar eplendid police force Is intelligently work-
Ing with us. Every new complaint will be ted
upon at once. Tammany Hall has the best Inter
ests of the city at heart, and the people of New-
York will appreciate thi.« fact when they see what
results we have achieved.
Ask' '1 if the report that Chief Devery may be
deposed be True. Mr. Nixon said: "Certainly the
rumor la unfounded. There is a lot of .-tuff In the
mouth* of gossip mongers concerning the recent
doings at Police Headquarters, but this latest MS)
rtp Is the most irresponsible of the lot. Chief
Devery is the right man in the right place, and he
will not be invited to quit his post."
Ecraaton. Perm.. Dec. 22 (Special).— Frank Silll
man. general manager of the Seranton- Traction
Company, to-day gave the company's refusal to ac
cede to the demands made by the local street rail
way employe* 1 union several days ago. and as a
result th* men will go on strike to-morrow. The
men request that the working hours be reduced to
ten a day that the pay for men one year In the
e«rvlce of the company be increased to 20 cents
an hour, and that the swing shift be abolished. The
company figured the advance to mean 28 per cent
Increase over the November nay. and say? that
the working hours are no longer than on other lines
in this locality. Poor business, due to the recent
coal strike. Is another reason given. Not a car
between Forest City and Pitt st on will run to-mor

The Rev. Dr. Joseph M. Asher was installed as
rabbi of the Congregation B'nal Jeshurun, at Mad
ison-aye. and Slxty-fifth-st., yesterday forenoon, to
succeed the Rev. Stephen S. Wise. Dr. Asher comes
from London and is a graduate of Cambridge Uni
The Rev. Dr. Gustav Gotthell, of the Temple
Emanu-El, conducted the installation. He told Dr.
Asher that he was coming to a new field, where he
would find things very different from those in
which he had been in the past laboring. He would
find a greater liberality In the ministers cf the vari
ous denominations of this country. There was a
toleration and a friendliness among ministers that
did not obtain in other countries. He would meet
the ministers of other denominations on platforms
and In society, and this would be an advantage to
him. as it would broaden his mind. Dr. Gottheil
emphasized the necessity of toleration and magna
nimity. He also called to the Incoming rabbi's no
tice that be would tlnd ideas more advanced here
than where he formerly labored, and enjoined on
him the need of constant intercourse with all the
people, as It would give him some conception of
what his ministry should be.
Dr. Asher was formally presented to Newman
Cowen, president of the Board of Trustees, then to
the trustees, and afterward to the congregation
and Sunday school. He preached a sermon of a
doctrinal nature, at its close making a personal ad
dress to the congregation.
"There is no sense In borrowing trouble about
any so-called prospective deficiency of $5,000,000 In
our local tax fund because of the failure of the
corporations .to pay their franchise tax," said Presi
dent Feitner of the Tax Commission yesterday to a
Tribune reporter.
"Thus far," continued Mr. Feitner. "the courts
have upheld the Ford Franchise Tax law, and they
probably will continue to do so. The only thing
that is causing us any particular discomfort Is the
rank injustice cf the State Board of Equalization.
The State Board keeps on unloading upon us a
disproportionate amount of the State taxes. In
eighteen counties of the State In 1899 the assessed
valuation was returned to the State Board as being
from 69 to 85 per cent of the actual value, while we
found by investigation that the real proportion of
assessed and actual value is from 34 to 55 per cent.
Despite this there was added by the State Board
to the assessed valuation of real estate In this city
the enormous amount of 1188.753,108. The habitual
Injustice of the State Board toward this city is
more apparent this year than ever. They have
gone on from year to year Increasing our assessed
valuations, never crediting us. however, with more
than C 3 per cent of full value, except In 1599. when
we were accorded 61 per cent. This was bad
enough. Now. in face of the fact that our assessed
valuations for 1899 showed an increase of 17 per
cent, the State Board, by an Incomprehensible
method of proportion, credits, us with but <" per
cent of full value in the table of 1900, an insignifi
cant increase of 3 per cent. We" know to a cer
tainty that the examining members of the State
Beard, the ones who knew best what to do in order
to be just, were arbitrarily overruled by the other
equalization members. On account of the peculiar
methods of the State Board the tremendous total
of t123.526.?75 has been added to the assessed value
of real estate in this county, and J25.103.227 in

Controller Coler yesterday gave out his fourth
analysis of the Bud 3 ec for 1901. taking:. the Law IV
partment. He has previously taken the Police. Fire
and Park departments.: and is giving one of the
analyses every week. In the Law Department in
the boroughs of Manhattan and The Bronx . for
1890 there were seventy-two men employed, with a
total cost, including aggregate salaries and ex
penses, of $201,200. The per capita, cost that year
was .132. and the men had an average salary
of $1,978 33. The following year, and every year until
IMS. salaries and all expenses, even including the
number of men employed. rose gradually. In UN
the expenses took a tremendous jump, as consolida
tion was enacted that year, and the expenses were
correspondingly much greater, there being extra
work and study of all sorts.
From 1898 until the present time all five boroughs
.-!!-« reckoned with Manhattan and The Bronx. In
the Borough of Brooklyn prior to the consolidation
the greatest cost for the Law Department was in
1897. when it reached a total of $79.870 57. The per
capita cost that year was .074. with an average
salary of $2,719 50 for a staff of twenty-four men.
In Queens and Richmond the same year was the
most expensive, the cost being $26,866 75 and $30.
634 42, respectively.
In the appended table it will be seen that in the
whole city from 1890 to 1901 inclusive^ there has
been an increase of $161,950 53 in the aggregate cost.
It will also be noticed that the difference in the
cost for the years 1897 and 1898 was $58.793 03.
caused by extra work for consolidation. The per
capita cost from 1890 to 1901 inclusive has risen
.014 while from 1837 to IS3B it rose .018. A table

Tullahoma, Term., Dec. 22.— Five men used dyna
mite on the vault of the Coffee County Bank, at
Manchester, Ky., early to-day. They secured $5,000
in currency, stole a handcar and escaped In th» di
rection of Tullahoma. Shortly after their depart
ure the night patrol cf Manchester found the
bank's doors open. He immediately telephoned the
authorities. A policeman and deputy sheriff, heav
ily armfd, secreted th^mpf-lves along the railway
a mile out. In a short time the handcar appearea
and waa ambushed. Four of the thieves succeeded
in getting away In the darkness, but the fifth man

San Francisco, Dec. 22 (BDeclal).— The Rev. John
Henry Cook, a colored preacher, of Mississippi,
who recently went to Hawaii to inspect the sugar
plantations and the opportunities they offer to
negro laborers, returned by the Zealandla to-day.
He says he Is much pleased with the outlook, and
the companion who went with him remained at
Kohala and began work on a plantation. Mr. Cook
says he will advise the Deople of his race to emi
grate to Hawaii, and he will accompany them. Ho
declares the advantages of Hawaii over any of
the Southern States are higher wages, shorter
hours of labor and no extremes of heat and cold.
In addition he says the quarters provided free by
the plantations are better, on the average, than
the negroes are able to provide for themselves in
Mississippi. Then there are free medical attendance
and other perquisites, which make tha real wages
much larger than they apparently are; a good sys
tem of free schools and absence of race antag
onism. He Is enthusiastic regarding the outlook
for negroes in Hawaii.

pavements, are covered with, almost a solid mass
of humanity. Inside the stores It is almost im
possible to pass from one counter to another. Many
' amusing incidents take place near the elevators.
' As soon as the door of a car opens the people
; Inside try to rush out and those outside try to rush

j and one seems to be at a fair. In the toy depart
j ments, especially, the scenes are lively. Children
I are excited over engines or by pink cheeked, yel
! low haired dolls; clerks are running to and fro.
starting tin fiddlers that play inaudible tunes, wind
ing up drivers of donkey carts, barouches and
! barges, that dash over the tops of boxes to sudden
| endings.
This season of the year Is, of course, the best one
for merchants. They are jubilant over the fine
weather, which keeps no one at home, and they
say that they have never done such a rushing busi
ness. Yesterday was the principal day for buyers
of presents, many of whom came to town from the
country with fat purses, which they were willing
to empty In exchange for things that were at
tractive. That they found the opportunity to em
ploy them goes as much without faying as that
they received what they sought. In the markets
hundreds of turkeys were displayed. One dealer In
Washington Market had put labels on his stock.
He called his turkeys "Solomon's Best." "Ter
rible Teddy," "Captain Titus." and. In fact, every
one of his "fine birds" appeared to be the namesake
of some prominent person. Other dealers had deco
rated their turkeys with rosettes of blue, yellow
and red paper, so that the turkeys looked somewhat
like birds of paradise. Above one stand a half
dozen huge turkeys were strung out with spread
wings, making the stand look like a hunter's
West-st., like many others, was bright with heaps
of yellow oranges. Indeed, yellow and green gave
West-st. a foreign and decidedly holiday appear
ance. There were barrels of mistletoe, groves of
Christmas trees and perfect grottos of holly and
Florida palms.
The downtown streets, like Fulton-st.. were filled
with stands containing a great variety of salable
odds and ends. Fancy worked suspenders, boxes of
artificial snow, Jumping jacks, story books, slip
pers for the fireside, boxes of books, gramo
phones, cardboard houses, dazzling little Christmas
trees and "nice grapefruit" suggested an Invasion
of tradesmen. To-morrow will be the last day of
business for many of these merchants, and In view
of this fact they made every effort to get rid of
what goods they could yesterday. Office boys were
their chief customers, but they were not particular
so long as they could turn an honest penny from
Christmas cheer. . .; ,. :

"Naturally, we were surprised," said George H.
Fearons, general attorney of the Western Union
Telegraph Company, yesterday, "that we were de
feated in the royalty suit brought by us against
the American Bell Telephone Company for the re
covery of $12,000,000. We were confident that the
United States Circuit Court would decide in our
favor. The case has been before the courts since
1883. I cannot say what action we shall take. In a
week or two. after we have received a copy of
Judge Colt's decision, we shall determine what our
future course will be."
The Metropolitan Street Railway Company, which
now owns and operates the Third-aye. line. Is
In negotiation with the city authorities relative to
running cars of the Fourth and Madison-aye. and
the Third-aye. lines down Broadway to the Battery.
The officials of the street railway company and the
city authorities come to an understanding as
to the rights of the railway company. There is
some contention over the elasticity of the franchise
under which the streetcar line operates, and an
Interpretation will have to be secured as to the
rights of the company to make this extension.
"The Judge of the Second Civil Court of the City
of Mexico has just handed down a decision fore- !
closing the mortgage on the Sonora and Sinaloa
Irrigation Company," said Walter S. Logan, of tho
firm of Logan. Demond & Harby, lawyers, at No.
27 Willlam-st., yesterday. "The suit for the fore
closure of the mortgage, which amounted to $600,000,
was begun last October for the purpose of reor- [
ganizlrig the company. I am trustee for the bond
holders, who ordered the suit brought In order that
their interests might be better conserved. The .
Mexican stockholders of the company have pro
tested against the foreclosure proceedings on the
ground that the Jurisdiction of the case lies with
the Civil Court at Guaymas, State of Sonora, and
not with the Federal Court. Their protest will be
of no avail. In my opinion, because our action in
opening the case in the Federal Court Is backed by
the best legal advice of the Republic."
The property of the Sonora and Sinaloa Irrigation
Company consist? of 550. C00 acres of land situated in
the Yaqul River Valley, in the State of Sonora. and
one of the most extensive irrigation plants in
Mexico. The company has a capitalization of
about J1.500.C00, according to Mr. Losan.
Appraiser Wilbur F. Wakeman yesterday ap
pointed George W. Wanmaker, Republican leader

morrow, forenoon at 11:30: Wilbur F. Wakeman,
J. P. Skillman. Michael Nathan, Harve T. An
drews and Warren Sherwood. All of the delegation
save Mr. Wakeman are assistant appraisers. The
promotion of Mr. Wanraaker does not bring him
an increase of salary, but in Mr. Wakeman s ab
sence he will hereafter be the Acting Appraiser.

James J. Coogan, whose tenure of office as presi
dent of the Borough of Manhattan is precarious
owing to the fact that he voted at Southampton at
the last election, has placed his case in the hands
of his attorneys. Controller Colcr has asked Cor
poration Counsel Whalen for an opinion as to the
status of Mr. Coogan. This opinion will probably
be forthcoming this week. As Mr. Coogan's next
salary as borough president is not due for nearly
two weeks there is no immediately hurry to decide
the ease. Mr. Coogan says the whole controversy
in "rot" and that he lives and pays taxes in this
