Tills v, as f ut r.is'ied yesterday afternoon, \ ' and Itosonthal was released. ; A set of sixty-one rules for the government of the prison £i:uj recently cone Into effect. There •is every possible provision afaJssi "graft" ana favoritism. The prisoners are officially known &s "iiur.ates" and the cells as "rooms." Indeed, "they are not ceils in reality, as Rule 43 provides: Doors to the rooms shall remain open at all times. If. however, any inmate shall abuse this privilege granted to him or if, in the judgment of the warden. it Is deemed necessary, either for the protection of The Sherifl or the proper management of the jail, to lock the room of any Inmate at night, the warden nay. In the exer cise of his good judgment, lock the door during ■oca length of time as he may deem proper. If such a c-»Fe shail arise the facts must be at once reported to the Sheriff. In every way the new rules provide for the protection of inmates, not only from unjust keepers, but from the crowd of harpy lawyers *ho used to Infest the jail. The inmates have full freedom of th balls, and the keepers are forbidden ordering them about. The new rules seem to be working smoothly. The keeper-* have little or no trouble enforcing them, and the discipline of the jail is satisfactory' "I air. glad that The Tribune has taken up this matter of civil arrest." said Justice Etoesch, of the IVth District Municipal Court, yesterday. "1 remember the action of The Tribune in fight ing the Instalment dealers when they were using the Ludlow-K. Jail in a most outrageous fashion a few years ago. Arrests in instalment : cases have been almost unknown since The Tribune got after them If all civil arrests can be eboiished it will be moat desirable."

Racing men were much Interested In the rumor in circulation last night nt the Hoffman House that August Bolmont will not bo reuppolnted a racing commissioner by Governor Higgins. The terms of the three Stat<» racing commissioners expire May ft next. Tho commissioners are Mr. Belmont. John Sanford. of Amsterdam, end Edwin D. Morgan, of this city. The only baste for the rumor s«ems to have been the fact that Mr. Belmont conducted a vigorous fight against the Republicans last fall, spending a great deal of money In behnlf of Parker and Her rlck. His conspicuous hostility to the Republican cause annoyed the Republican leaders, who, now that Mr. Beltnonfs term as State Racing Commis sioner is nearly finished, desire to see him retired. The post is one of great honor among racing men. and there are turfmen who would like to succeed Mr. Belinont. The friends of Mr. Beliro-.it sf^m to th'.nk that when tho time comes Governor Higgins will be magnanimous and offer Mr. Belmont a re appointment. They say that Mr. Belmont does a f.rrat deal for the turf, and that as h» will open Belmoht Park next spring it would be an unwar ranted humiliation for him to be "turned down" by the Governor. IV.

GET GEMS THE MURDERER TOOK Mrs. Heeler's Jewels Found in Pawnshop- General Alarm for Her Nephew. Detectives last night found the Jewelry taken from Mrs. Margaret Kceler. who was murdered on Monday at her flat. No. 82 East One-hundred-and fifteenth-st. Many pawnshops had been searched as soon as the hunt for the murderer began. Yes terday afternoon the detectives who were nt work along Third-aye. entered the establishment of M. & E. Bruckheimer, at No. 2.108 in that thoroughfare. Their inquiries were quickly rewarded, and the pawnbroker brought out the missing jewelry. It consists of a pair of diamond oarringa. which were torn from Mrs. Keeler's ears; her diamond ring and her plain gold wedding ring. Her hus band and son readily identified the property as that which Mrs. Keeler had worn. Bruckheimer told the detectives that a man an swering the description of tho man for whom they are searching came to the pawnshop Monday afternoon and offered all the Jewelry for pledge. He wanted 1201 on it. Bruckheimer refused to lend this amount, and fir, illy give him $16. The valuables, according to Mr. Keeler, are worth at least $400. The pawnbroker said the man declared he was in urgent need of money, and went away grumbling at the small amount that he had ob tained. The precinct detectives attached to the East One-hundred-and-fourth-st station and the Cen tral Office men have sent out a general alarm for the arrest of Mrs. Keeler'a nephew. The notice reads: Arrest for homicide Fr.-.nk Furlong, nineteen yfars old; bricklayer; 5 feet 9 inches; 135 pounds; elim; broad shouldered, with a slight stoot'. very thin face; sunken cheek*; ruddy complexion; sandy hair; blue eyes: when last seen he wore a shabby gray suit and gray overcoat. Mrs. Keeler was killed by a long iron bolt, taken presumably from the tracks of the New-York Central Railroad or a new building near by. Mrs. Keeler, It if said, had long protected and assisted Furlong. Some ttae ago he is said to have stolen a ring from her and pawned it. Mrs. Keel*>r got her ring ba<-k and refused to press a charge of larceny .against him. Later he is said to have forged her name to a check, hut Mr?. Keeler again refused to makA any charge. The uollce evidence is that h« went to the flat Monday to demand more money, and prepared to get it by violent means if it was refused him. FUNERAL WAITED FOR DIVORCE.

An Unusually Handsome Collection Of Men's House Coats HP HE Wanamaker Store has always been noted for the unusual * character of its House Coats or smoking jackets for men. We take more pains in the gathering and the making of these comfortable house garments than any other concern we know about. We stipulate specifications for both comfort and good looks that other stores never stop to think about. AW \x \ker House Coat is quite as smart as .n Tuxedo, and worn instead of that formal coat by a great many men, when receiving friends in their own homes, except on the most formal occasions. This year we have done better than ever before We are particularly proud of the fine group of imported coats which we are showing. These handsome garments are made of rich brocaded and plain velvets, luxuriously silk-lined. The prices 'ire $25, $27.50 and $35. There are quite handsome imported house coats, in checked cloths, at $7.50. Then the showing of American-made House Coats is most ex haustive, presenting the most advanced ideas in the construction of comfortable and handsome garments for men. The cloths are carefully chosen, both as to weaves, patterns and color mixtures, and are made up in the very best manner. Prices are $5, $5.50, $7.50, $9, up to $20. Broadway and Xinth Str«t. But One Vuitton in All the World ■ LOUIS VUITTON, of Paris, is still the undisputed master *— ' among trunk builders. I It is not a fad that makes visitors to Paris return with Vuittoo \ Trunks. Nor is it only the knowledge that a Vuitton stands oat ! amid all other luggage, handsome, distinguished — Vuitton, at a j glance. There's a more practical reason: Vuitton Trunks are still the strongest and lightest in the world. ! And they alone have all the conveniences, the niceties of construc tion, the sensible disposal of parts, that come of an almost in- j spired knowledge of travelers' needs. '' These trunks are in sizes and shapes for varied purposes and persons. All graceful, light, and of iron endurance. Of course, they cost a little more than other — they are the best ia the world. And in no other trunk is there such value for expenditure. But you need not go to Paris to get a Vuitton Trunk. We have a complete collection. These, and the others: Women's Trunks, with two and i Men's Trunks, with- divided three plain trays, or with top tray for shirts, collars. cuffs, tray divided for waists, collars. j hats, etc.: tray for dress clothe^ I ties, gloves, etc.: and extra space , and iar*« packing compartment.
