Declares Family Is After Property
— Wife to Fight Son's Suit.
With tho lfcsue of a writ of habeas corpus by

Brodi© I* Duke, on the suit of Mr. Duke's sec
retary, preparations by counsel of Mrs. Duke

a note broker from dtaposlnff of notes signed by
Mr. and Mrs. Duke, the affairs of the tobacco
manufacturer, who Is now an inmate of the
Rajiford Hall Sanato:ium at Flushing, seemed
yesterday to bo getting into a tangle of litiga
tion. At the same time thers was an offer by
Mrs. Duke's attorney to aid the District At
torney in the Investigation of the circumstances
•urroundlng the recent marriage of Mr. Duke
and Miss Alice Webn.
A report gained considerable currency last
Bight that Mr. Duke had been spirited away
from Kanford Hall. In Flushing, and taken to
Amityvllle. Dr. W. Stuart Brown, of Banford
Hall, following the settled custom of the Insti
tution, declined to state whether or not Duke
had left th« Flushing sanatorium. The authori
ties of the two 6anatoriurns In Amityville said
that Duke was not in that village.
Justice Gaynor's writ commanded the superln
tea&ent of the sanatorium to produce Mr. Duke
In court at 10 a. m. to-morrow. The writ was
Issued on the motion of Champ© S. Andrews,
counsel for W. G. Bramham. Mr. Duke's secre
tary, on the alleged ground that Mr. Duke is be
inz - Trained of his liberty and prevented from
seeing Mi secretary In the transaction of neces
aary business, while bo is sane and competent
to attend to his affairs. The writ was served
en the superintendent of the sanatorium late in
the afternoon.
"For five years," said Mr. Bramham at the
"Astor House last evening, "I have been Mr.
Dwte'S secretary at Durham, N. C, and have
transacted nearly all his business for him. Most
of the time he has been away from his home, but
has been In almost constant communication with
xne, end I have acted with his authority. I
came North at the first intimation of his trouble,
and yesterday I went to the sanatorium at
Flushing in company with Mr. Andrews, whom I
had engaged as my counsel, and tried to see Mr.
Duke. The superintendent of the sanatorium
■aid I could rot see him unless I had an order
from Lawrence Duke, his son.
"I explained that I was Brodie I*. Duke's man
of business, closer to him than his son in busi
ness matters, and that It was necessary for me
to talk with Mr. Duke about certain matters. I
also told the superintendent that Mr. Duke and
his eon were not on good terms, and that I could
net go to Lawrence Duke for an order to see his
father. I was not permitted to see Mr. Duke,
however, but I was Informed that Mr. Duke had
recovered from the effects of liquor and was pro
testing against being held a prisoner in the san

find did not care v.hat Ftep might be taken to
have her marriage with Mr. Duke annulled, but
3 wanted to talk with Mr. Duke about his busi
ness affairs. Lawrence Duke was Inclined to
■fjsa an order to enable me to talk with his
father, but Mr. Sullivan, of Mr. Lindsay's law
firm, came in. and said such a step would inter
fere with plans of the law firm to have Mr. Duke
declared Incompetent.
"It was then lain to tarn that It was the Inten
tion of the Duke family to keep Mr. Duke a
prisoner in the sanatorium until they could have
him declared insane and get possession of his
property, and I want to pay now that I will leave
no stone unturned to defeat that plan. The
Duke family will have the biggest fight they ever
••ere in before they send Mr. Duke to an insane
asylum and get possession of his property and
business. 1 have no doubt that when Mr. Duke
appears in court on Friday morning it will be so
apparent that he iB sane and able to take care of

Mr. Bra: i ham said that Mr. Duke had three
children by his first wife. They are two married
•daughters and Lawrence Duke. Mr. Duke's first
wife died. By his second wife, now divorced, he
had a son, now a lad of thirteen, who is with his
mother in California.
"It Mr. Duk< was entrapped Into marriage
•with his third wife," said Mr. Bramham. "I
ehould expect him to initiate proceedings to
have the marriage annulled. It would not be
necessary for his son to begin such a suit. One
thing you can depend on — Mr. Duke is perfectly
sane. and the whole town of Durham will tes
tify to that effect if nec« bsary to keep him. out
cf an asylum."
It was announced yesterday that Mrs. Duke
bad retained John M. Gorham as her attorney,
With Levy & T'ngor as counsel, to begin habeas
corpus proceedings to liberate her husband and
•to defend the suit started by the Duke family
for the annulment of her marriage.
. Mr. Gorham offered to co-operate with the
District Attorney in his investigation, and have
Mrs. Duke testify if her testimony was de
"Mr. Duke," he said, "was going about among
reputable business people of the city In down
town office buildings, for two or three weeks with
;MJss Webb before he married her, talking to
brokers and other people about his plan to buy
that Texas property. He did most of the talk
ing, while the woman .listened. He was mak
ing arrangements to buy the property, not for
her then, but for himself, and at the same time
tie was urging her to marry him, and she was
putting him off.
"After he married her, Mr. Duke went to Dur
ham. X. C. alone .leaving his wife here in the
city. He was South several days, getting the
eecuritles on which he intended to raise the
money to buy the lard. The fact that he was
married was known then to his relatives, but
they made no move against him until he was
back with his wife. There will be a host of wit
nesses, both here and in the South, to prove
that Mr. Duke was going about this business
matter, both before and after his marriage, with
evident sanity and business shrewdness. If
there has been any conspiracy in this case. it
•was on the part of the people who had deter
'Jvts watching him, waiting until he happened
to get drunk, an he sometimes did. to pounce
on him and tak9 hun off to an asylum."
Nicoll. Anab'e & Lindsay, representing the
Duke family, yesterday obtained from Justice
Greenbaum in the Supreme Court in Manhat
tan an order, returnable next Monday, to show
«:ause why a commission in lunacy should not
be appointed in the case of Brodie L. Duke.
Papers In the case will be served to-day on
counsel for Kit Duke. It Is expected also that
«'oui:Rfcl for Mr. Bramham will neck to oppose
the appointment of a commission in lunacy.
Counsel for the Duke family also obtained a
writ to enjoin Richard S. Kaufou>.nn, a not*
broker at No. 42 Broadway, from negotiating
notes for $S.riOO and $8,000. which were made
find s!rtie<i by Mr. Duke and his wife last week.

Jerome Agnail* Cottrell — Brooks and
McClusky Before McAdoo.
"Honest John" Kelly, for tpn ypnrs one of the
bfst known s^unblera In the upper part of the
Tenderloin, h;ts turned State's evidence. Kelly
hennl that a s»ubp<ena had been issuer! for
him. and voluntarily visited District Attorney
Jerome's office yesterday and made affidavits
concerning KaniblitiK- in the Tenderloin. He en
trred and left the Distrid Attorney's office in n
Jaunty manner, l.ut quickly dropped it when he
learned that because of his testimony all his
gambling paraphernalia had been seized and
would he destroyed. A little later the District
Attorney scathingly criticised Captain Cottrell.
One interesting 1 feature of the case Is that the
Tenderloin police have stationed men in front of
Kelly's plate, in West Forty-first-st., for
lnonths. Kelly has done no business at all in
this place for some months, but at a house near
by he has been doing as good a business as any
■ambler in the Tenderloin, without undue efforts
at concealment.
Captain Cottrell was summoned to meet the
District Attorney at 3 p. m. Captain Cottiell's
conference with Mr. Jerome was short. Angry
words could easily be heard from the office
where the two men -were, and Captain Cottrell
left the office flushed and angry. He curtJy re
fused to discuss what had taken place.
Kelly testified that he had been a gambler for
nine years, and that his place of business was
at N'os. 137, 139 and 141 West Forty-flrst-st.
Mr. Jerome at once secured a search warrant
tot No. 141. It was found to be empty. An
other warrant wa3 issued for No. 137. Assist
ant District Attorney Miner and three detec
tives searched this house and confiscated niuoh
gambling paraphernalia. Including "several rou
lette wheels." On the first floor was a pool
room. On the se«ond floor the searching party
found fifteen men playing roulette, and on the
top floor were card tables. Captain Cottrell
came around with the Tenderloin patrol wagon
to take away the stuff, ana excitedly asked Mr.
Miner by what authority he hnd raided the
place. Tbe warrant was shown him. Two
locked safes wrr" found in NOS. 1"7 and 141.
and an open one In No. 137, In which was a
card box vlth considerable money.
Mr. Jerome said, after Mr. Miner's raid:
Five Bubpocnaa were given to Captain Cottrell
to serve on "Honest John" Kelly, nobody know
ing it but th.' District Attorney, liis assistant
and the captain. Four of these subpepnas wer"
found not served and the fifth the captain can
not find. John Kelly knew there was "some
thing doing." The fifth subpoena waa served on
Kelly's partner.
The captain was asked five days ago if there
was a keeper of a gambling house in his precinct
whom he knew whom he could serve a subpoena
on. Five days later he has found some one on
whom a subpoena can he served. According to
his reports there are fifty suspected places in
his precinct He has the aid of sixteen plain
ClOthea men, besides two detective sergeants.
The police being unable to serve this subgoena
on Kelly, I simply a.skvd him to come down here,
and he did. It is apparent that Captain Cot
trell's memory is impaired. This makes it diffi
cult to find anybody on whom a subpo?na can be
served. After five days he is unable to-day to
recall the name of any one person whom he 0.
his large police force could serve a subpoena on.
Captain Cottrell was so delighted that "Honest
JohnV was closed to-day that he put a man in
uniform in front of No. 137. ■ You will find him
there, no doubt, to-night, warning people that
the gambling paraphernalia are at the office of
the District Attorney. This police activity cer
tainly shows an eagerness to co-operate with the
District Attorney, and it is commendable.
If the captain cannot close his precinct, I can
— at least, 1 hope I can.
Mr. Jerome then expressed the hope that Cap
tain Cottrell would not be transferred. He was
so familiar with everything in his precinct that
ii would be a shame to put some captain there
v.h<> might be ablo to plead ignorance. The Dis-
Irict Attorney suid that No. 141 had been run as
a gambling house for nine years, closing with
the Saratoga races, when No. 137 would open
as a poolroom by day and a gambling house at
night. No. 141, he declared, had been prac
tically empty fur at least four months, but some
hundreds o* people went to the other house every
day. He said that No. 141 had been carried <".i
the last thrt>e reports of the captain to the in
spector, who certified it to-the Commissioner as
a suspected place," while No. 137 was not men
tioned at all.
Mr. Jerome added that Kelly was one of the
best known men who did not pay for police pro
tection, makinp "contributions".' to political
funds instead.
Commissioner McAdoo had Inspectors Brooks
fnd McClusky before him In his office yester
day. Loud talk could be heard in the room, and
when the Commissioner was seen litter lie
seemed flushed and angry.
He said that he had not been talkinß to the
inspectors about the raid on Kelly's place.
Concerning the statement, attributed to Cap
tain Cottrell, that he could not dose Daly's be
cause of the "man higher up." who was de
clared to be in the Detective Bureau, the Com
oner said, with heat, that he had never
heard it. He declared he had had Kelly's raided
in Jutk?.
Captain Cottrell late last night said he had
no statement to make relative to his conference
with Mr. Jerome. He went on to say:
I am exceedingly sorry that my work has not
satisfactory to everybody. I myself feel
that I have done my duty.
Asked if he had any reply to make to the
statement, made by Mr. Jerome, that No 141
West Portjr-flrat-st was vacant and No. 187,
two d'M«rs away, open for gambling, he said:
I had mf-.'i watching No. 141, and they were
ordered to keep their eyes open and see that no
gambling took place in No. 137. The house
was known to be owned by Kelly.
In the Tenderloin lnst night everything wns
rluaed as the result of the raid. On Broadway
all evening the raid was talked of constantly.
It if thought thar more raids would con.
that they would be made by Mr. Jerome.
Jerome Thinks Cottrell Was Lax in Regard
to Boyle Charges.

Xo Cause for Public Alarm in
Seager Case.
On account of a suspicious case of illness on
board, which Dr. Doty and his staff thought might
be yellow fever, the steamship City of Washington,
from Colon, was detained for three hours yesterday
at Quarantine. The patient la John A. Seager, sec
retary to Chief Engineer Wallace, of the Panama
Canal Commission. He accompanied on the steamer
the body of his wife, who died from yellow fever on
the isthmus on January 2. Mr. Seager was appar
ently in good health when he left Colon, but soon
after the steamer left port he became til.
Mr. Sealer became alarmed lest the authorities
here should refuse to allow the body of his wife to
be landed, as the law forbidding the landing of the
body of a person dying- from yellow fever is rigid.
Mr. Seager, however, received assurance that a
special act of Congress would be passed granting
permission la his case, and the act was passed
while the steamer was on her way to this port.
Mr. Beager was placed on his arrival in a ward
at Hoffman Island. Dr. Doty said last night that
Mr. Seager was resting comfortably, but that his
symptoms pointed to yellow fever. "We shall be
ah].- to tell by to-morrow." said Dr. Doty.
"Even it" he has yellow fever there is no cause
for public alarm. The disease cannot be contracted,
by contact with the person or clothing. The only
way it can get into one's system is through the
mosquito bite.
"I hnve allowed the body of Mrs. Seager to be
Shipped because it Is In an hermetically sealed
coffin and there is no possible chance of the disease
Mr. Seager was a secretary to William C. Whitney
when the latter wns in the Cleveland Cabinet, and
later served as secretary to Daniel Lamont. Mr.
and Mrs. Seager were married on October l of

The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, according to
one of the officials. Is the first steam railroad in
the world to reduce the. movement of trains by
telephone to systematized practice, clothed with the
bf=t snfeKUards, as has been the telegraph train
handling system that has been in operation for
many years. A conference of the dispatching
forces was held recently at Baltimore, and a set
of rules and forms was arranged so as to reduce
the method of handling trains by telephone to a
standardized system. Charles Seldon, superin
tendent of telegraphs, was chairman of the confer
ence, and it is the expectation that every non
telegraph station that has a passing siding will be
tilted up with a telephone connection to the nearest
telegraph office. This will enable the transmission
of train orders from the telegraph otttc*- to the
train crews at such sidings direct, or to an em
ploye ttatiotif'd there for that purpose.
In addition to the long circuits the telephone is
used extensively in single tr.aok blocking and for
the movement of yard engines and the connection
of non-telegraph stations with telegraph stations,
by which trains are moved from the former to the
latter where ordinary telegraph cutlers are re
