Immediately after the patrolmen of the city
began to enforce the Sunday law against the
saloons, a Tribune reporter was told by high
officers of the police force that the main reason
for such action was a desire to attack Commis
sioner Partridge and Mayor Low because the
three platoon system had been abolished. The
patrnlmen. it was said. 1-elleved that the Mayor
ana Police Commissioner were pledged to a
HSeral enforcement of the laws, and thought
they could be forced to take back the three
platoon system if the laws were enforced of
fensively against the saloonkeepers.
Police officials and politicians In all parts of
the city believe now that revenge was the con
trolling motive of the patrolmen. Tlie per
formances of the patrolmen in the district east
of the Bowery on Sunday have convinced many
doubters that the men are mined to do
their utmost to get the administration of Mayor
Low in bad repute with voters cf the city un
less the three platoon system of patrol duty
is restored. On Sunday the patrolmen of Cap
tain Walsh's command, at the Eldridge-st. sta
tion, went through the Hebrew quarter in the
precinct and arrested every shopkeeper they
could find attending to business. They per
mitted saloons In the precinct to remain open
unmolested and spent all their energies in pry
ing into the small shops of grocers, butchers,
tailors. Jewellers and other tradesmen.
They brought a crowd of prisoners before
Magistrate P.r.'/m in the Essex Martlet Court
yesterday morning. When the ainared magis
trate asked why they had made such an exhi
bition at activity at the expense of the small
tradesmen, they said: "Well, we only Old our
duty. Commissioner Partridge accused us of
discriminating against the saloonkeepers last
In ■:■•"
what Commissioner Partridge saJd was: "
'.Wnlc a policeman trho arrests Che keeper of a
sam Win"? h"i;se. an opium Sen or a. den of vice
is a much better officer than a policeman who
a butcher for m l ■ " ti tr food on Sunday."
"It's funny that you only saw your duty yes
terday." said Magistrate Brar.n. "I hope God
trill reward you if Commissioner Partridge
The magistrate imposed a $5 fine on each of
forty-seven small tradesmen arrested In the dis
trict on Sunday, and dismissed ten other cases
in which the police apparently had trumped up
charges of Sunday selling In order to make ar
rests. Some of the persons arrested appeared to
be entirely ignorant of the reasons for arrest.
Police Commissioner Partridge declined yes
terday to talk about the wholesale arrests of
small tradesmen in the district east of the
Bowery. He said he wanted to get more light
on the situation before making any comments.
It was suggested tlmt it might be a good plan
to transfer to "goat districts" the patrolmen of
that precinct, who have been trained for years
to protect many dens of vice there and levy
blackmail on poor and ignorant venders. Colo
nel Partridge had talks with Captain Walsh
and the inspector of the district. Speaking of
the general police activity on Sunday, he said:
"I've been Informed that there has been so
much talk— so much Is alleged to have been 6ald
by the District Attorney and the agents of va
rious societies Interested in Sunday reform —
that the patrolmen are a little anxious, and
have gone to extremes in this matter."
"How do you account for the falling off in
excise arrests ?" was asked.
"I jave no special oiders on Saturday." the
Commissioner said, "but I think very probably
there wtre fewer arrests l>ecause there V-as less
cause for them. I think the work of the Bun
do> -fore caused a general closing of the
District Attorney Jerome had a talk with
Commas •.. r Partridge. I^ater he said: "I
have dc desire to Interfere so Ions; as the police
are doiriL- their duty. If I found that the police
were ] . tneae small shopfceepera. I would.
hot it would riot l>r a nice spectacle for a Dis
kfel ■■■ ■■ ;. to Interfere when the law is be
ir.c enforced."
Th- District Attorney then described trade
conditions a= they exist in neighborhoods where
the Inhabitants are principally Hebrew-, saying
that they observed Saturday as their Sabbath
ar.<3 closed their places of business on that day.
particularly Hebrews of the older generation,
MM were more orthodox in their belief. If they
wore obliged to keep closed on Sundays as
MB, they had left only five days in the week
on which to conduct business, which inflicted
» genuine hardship upon them.
The District Attorney said he believed that as
lour as the small shopkeepers of the Hebrew
fefth observed one day In the week, and closed
stores on that day. ihey rhould be allowed
to keep their places open on Sunday, and he
tided that if he had been on a friendlier footing
«"':h th* last legislature he might have had
laws- enacted granting that privilege.
The charges of neglect of duty against three
police captains which are being prepared In
District Attorney Jerome's office include charges
against Captain Gannon, It Is said, and they
WIU be presented to the Police Commissioner in
a few days.
In the police courts yesterday the magistrates
held for trial most of the saloonkeepers who
were arrested for Sunday selling.
In •:■ Supreme Court Justice Blanchard dis
missed a writ of habeas corpus obtained by
David Friedman, a saloonkeeper of Park Row,
*to had been arrested on a "John Doe" war
rant for Sunday selling. Justice Blanchard held
that the Identification of the prisoner subse
quent to his arrest was sufficient to warrant the
magistrate in holding him. and he. therefore,
dismissed the writ. On the question of the suffi
<-)<-• of the designation "John Doe" without a
ascription of the man wanted. Justice Blanch

Hudson, K. V.. April 14.— The trifil of the three
Van "Wormer brothers for the murder of their
uncle. Peter A. Hallenbeck, at Greenport, on Christ
mas Eve, was resumed to-day. There was a sensa
tion In court when Harvey Bruce, who was accused
with the Van Wormcre. was called to the stand to
testify against the three defendants. *
At the afternoon session of court Judge Chester
said he would permit Brace to testify, and that at
the proper tim ■ he would instruct the jury as t >
the weight to be given to such testimony. Bruce
was th«n sworn as a witness. He said:
I am aware that I am charged with the crime of
murder in the lirst degree, with Willis, Burton and
Frederick Van Wormer. I know Imond Vener l»y
sight. I was in his store when masks were bought.
Willis Van Wormer ivas with me. On Monday be

a smooth fa^e. One Willis bottght had whiskers on
both rides.
We took the masks to the house. The next mask
was bought on Christmas, l went to Brown's liv
ery the day before Christmas last with Burton
Van Wormt-r. I saw Mr. Brown and unother man.
Burton wanted the horse to so to Btujrvesant and
North Chatham. Brown objected. 1 said it was
not necessary to gO to StuyvesaM. He said We
would so to North Chatham. Burton und I went
after the horse. \V» saw Coons, who hitched up
a bay horse, dipped, to a top buggy with an end
spring. We drove to Van Wormer's house. Bur
ton trot out and went In. Burton and two broth
ers came out and tot in. One of the boys put
three raise races in the wagon. Then we drove
down the post road and passed through Stuyvesant
Fulls. I asked '■>.. in What they were going that
way for, when they were going to North Chatham.
Burton said: "We are going down the lane." Pass-
Ing Stuyvesant 1 asked why they were going that
way. They did not tell me. Burton pat on Willis's
lap. I Fat on Frederick's lap. Next we passed
through Rnssman's. When we were on top of Ross
man'n Hill 1 demand^ to know where we were
r«>:ng. They said. "We are going to give T'nelo
JVter a surprise." The next place w;rs Btottville.
I know a Ftore kept there by Tinker. I pot out at
•thr.t -•or,, and left the throe others in the wagon.
I bought a paper of tobacco and gave it to Fred
erick Van Wormer. I saw two men outside the
store, but did not recognise either of them. Then
we drove to Stottvllle. and to Hudson. We passed
the hospital In Hudson and then went on to C.reen
port Church. Frederick got out and looked in the
window The other two looked In sleighs around
there and remained about four minutes.
Th. we drove to Hallenbock's farm The boys
put two whips in the wagon at the ehiircn ana
then took Mack robes. Fred said that Charles Hal
let beck was In church with his wife and hired man.
He said that would leave the "old Ind>.

along the orchard. Burton drove the horse : to th*
bam Then the horse was tied. I put a. blanket
on the horse We took off our overcoats, turned
{Am Inside out. and then put on tho fatoe faces.
The false faces -were kept on by cloths. I tied on
my own.
We then walked up the road past the £»"«**?*
house and through tne orchard. We M'read out
going through the orchard, and then went to the
back kitchen door, which had a covered stoop.
Burton told me to' follow him and Fred to .come

I was on the left fide and Fred was back of nae.
Purton knocked on the door. Mr. Hallenbeek
came to it. Burton pushed him in when he came

lenbe<-k while Fred was firing. Fred's pistol was
held level with his Shoulder. The fire seemed to
almost touch Salienbeck. I cannot tell how many
Lhots wore fired. They were fired very rapidly.
Here the witness identified the revolvers and
I fired two shots from my revolver. I was pres
ent when Burton borrowed a revolver from Jerome
BowTr Burton let go of Hallenbeck anil went
into the other room. I saw a lady run across the
room and heard the report of a '-. voU 1 '.[;, 0^ h( k

Fred left the room and Willis followed him. Bur

gunri" followed Burton out. I saw something
shtnlng on the step and picked it up. It was my
revolver. It was empty. It held five cartridge!!.
I was in the bouse about one minute and a half, at

been removed, and I wear an artiflclal one. I know
Mr- Hallenbeck. I did not see her face when we
were there, but think the woman who ran across
the kitchen was she. When I got off the stoop I
saw Burton. He was running toward the barn. I
followed htm; he crawled wider the fence. I
lumped over the pate and ran to the barn. U tills
£nd Frr-d were there. All got into the wagon.
When we came to the woods we changed our coats

causing the drivers of automobiles: to be more
careful than ever.

ragged in consequence.

James U. Haggln has bought the Ryder and Kou
w«nhoven farms fronting In the Nock Road and
Just north of the Bheepshead Bay racetrack for
J200.C00. Samuel Goldstlcker was the broker an.i
the seller Charles E. Perkins, who owned the .farm.-s
for some years. Mr. Haggin la building n-ar the
property just bought by h!m, which comprises
eighty-nine acres, a big stable for his running
horses. This purchase mak^s the size of bis hold
ings near the Sht-tpshead Bay track about one
hundred and fifty acres, which la said to be the
largest area of land used and owned by one per
son for a racing stable 'or thoroughbreds in the
metropolitan district. The total value of the land
Is not much less than MOO.OOO, and II la generally
thought that the cost of: building the stable will be
many thousands of dollars.

In explanation of the decline of bicycle rldinj
last year at least one cause for it was not men*
tioned, according- to a rider who has used a whee
moderately for nearly ten years. He said recentlj
that cycling lost Its novelty because its follower!
were compelled to travel over th- same roads toe
often. Familiarity with scene? made riding a mo
notonous pastime for many, and the wheelman re*
ferred to was about to fall Into the ranks of the
non-riders. As an experiment he tried taking two
day trips, and found, after a few rides, that It
was a highly satisfactory pleasure. As a rule. Sun
day was one of the two clays. This rider thinks
that wheelmen will find greater enjoyment In this
method. There are any number of placts that can
be reached easily in one day. and. after staying
in a town all night, there is generally another
route to be found for the return trip. Among 1 towns
that may be mentioned a- being suitable for the
turning point in a two day trip are Greenwood
Lake. Asbury Park. SunVrn. Lake Hopatcong,
Washington. X. J. ; Hackettstown. or almost an»
point on the soutn shore of Long Island.
. Some of the friends of the motor bicycle are try-"
Ing to make a place for It among; the riders of the
pedal propelled wheel. The motor cyclist is sat
isfied to stay In a class by himself, because off
the speed possibilities of tv.-» wheel. Since th»
motor r!-v -V has ?peeds ranslns from four to
thirty miles an hour, its owner is» tempted to maka
the most of Ills opportunities. That the machinal
bicycle has great speed power is enough to take 16
out of the bicycle category. On the Cycle Paths
outside of Prospect Park 1. st summer a bicycle po
liceman invited the rider of a motor bicycle to turn
on his power to in. full, in order that the police
man might use the >!,>:• bicycle as a test of hia
own ability at following piice. There was a terrific
sprint for a. few Mocks, and there were many
riders on the path. .* .•.!'... Imar: who saw tn>9
race asked ■ {ark policeman it there was not vio
lation of the road law in such a practice. Tho
officer admitted that th- r > was. but said that high
power was of m value- unless it was used at
times, and added thnt a '•poiicrmaH must try his
speed, anyway." With that encouragement a.
motor cyclist win feel safe in fast riding.
A regular meeting of the Associated Cycling
Clubs of Jfew-Torll was held at the clubhouse cl
th« Century Wheelmen last night. Ten clubs wers
represent"!. In the at can of President < 'at man,
Joseph Goodman was fen the chair. Dixie Hlnea
sent In hi- resignation a a vice president and Dr.
K. V. Brendon also resigned. The resignation ol
Hines was placed OS] Ike table because a member
of the Greenwich Wheelmen, whom Mines repre
sented, declared that id:-..-.- had been expelled from
that club for non-payment ol does. The Metropola
Cycle Club applied for membership in the associa*
lion. The association Indorsed the coasting con»
test to be conducted by the Metrnpole Club, and
will ask all clubs to assist in making the contest
a success.
When wheelman speak of cycles that are pro-*
polled by motors they are likely to feave thel*
hearers in some doubt as to the particular type re-.
ferred to. The term motor cycle may mean any
one of four varieties. It includes any bicycle in
which pedals are used as part of the propelling
power. Mntocycle would be the better term, sinci
it means any m • of the four kinds— motor bicycles,
