THINK WOMAN FORGER;
Anrsttd hi Tuwhs While /'/>■;,'/,
// '/y})a>i<l (wane: Snsju , /, ,/.
Mrs. Thoma* McCarthy, alias Brown, was ar
rested as she was visiting her husband !n the
Tombs yesterday morning:, on a charge of
forging and uttering: a check for $250. When
she was arrested she tried to swallow something,
which a court officer took from her. It proved
to be a visiting card bearing her real name.
which she wished to conceal to avoid becoming
known as McCarthy's wife.
The check alleged to have been forged bears
a signature purporting to be that of George If.
Cohan. The woman was held by Magistrate
Breen in the Tombs court in $1,500 bail for
examination Monday. Assistant District Attor
ney Lockwood was in court and said that he
understood that the police records showed the
woman to be a notorious "badger" woman, who
is out on bail on another charge. He raid that
the bond on which she had been released on
the other charge had been found to be worth
less after her release.
The woman's husband and Thomas Bchaad,
who was a clerk in the Bank of New York, were
arrested last week on a charge of forging and
m.ering checks, and it is said that these men.
with ..Irs. McCarthy and another man named
Muntweiler, have been operating as a gang of
forgers. Mr. L,ockwood said that Bchaad had
confessed that he had furnished the mhors with
blank checks, and that they had done the rest
of the work.
fSchaad was a messenger of the bank, and
left checks with others of the gang to copy sig
natures. Among those whose signatures were
forged are Henry S. Van Beuren. David Barnes.
\\ ilham A. Boyd and John A. Drake. The last
named sent a check to a newspaper fund for
the fean Francisco sufferers, which was pub
lished in facsimile, thus enabling the gang to
reproduce the signature.

CITY FIGHTS UNION.
AC< I Sl.]) OF BLACKMAIL.
Street Department Against Drivers,
\ ' Sweepers and Hostlers.
One of the biggest rights this city or any of
its departments has ever had : against' labor
unions la now on between .the Commissioner of
the Department of Street Cleaning: and the
Drivers. Sweepers and Hostlers* Union, com
posed of men in the Street Cleaning Department.
The Acting Commissioner. Captain Gibson, has
written to the union to say that the very pur
poses of the organization are illegal. The union
men say they are eight thousand strong.
The fight arose over the union gathering ad
vertisements for a manual or handbook to be
Issued by the union, in connection with which
Captain Gibson said yesterday that a huge
blackmailing scheme had been going on. He
said hotel and other business men have been
held up by union agents for from $25 to $100
apiece, or even less If they could not get more,
on the representation that the money so paid
out would do good among the men In the Street
The union men say they simply authorize
men to collect for them for advertisements and
know nothing about blackmail. Captain Gibson
said philanthropically inclined business men and
other people had been swindled out of thousands
of dollars in the last six or seven years by
schemes of this kind in the department. He
says now he will fight this thing to the end.
Acting Commissioner Gibson received a letter
from the union asking for photographs of
machinery, Incinerators, ash carts, etc., to be
used in the Manual. He showed the letter,
which had the names of the officers of the union
at the head as general executive council, and
the trustees. The office was given as No. 163
East 6th street. The officers are Thomas W.
Parras. president; James Wythe, vice-presi
dent; Henry Cardos, recording secretary; Henry
Grossgean, financial secretary: William Green
field, treasurer, and Gibrello Miano. sergeant at
arms. Captain Gibson then wrote that the De
partment of Street Cleaning would have' no con
nection with the association at present. Cap
tain Gibson added in this letter:
At the present time we have no knowledge as
to what use the funds are put which are re
ceived by your association that are solicited in
an advertising way from the business people of
the community, who are given to understand
that by subscribing for an advertisement they
are going to be in some way benefited by the
Department of Street Cleaning, which is not a
Captain Gibson said yesterday that the union
men then sent him a letter, which, he declared,
showed their purposes as stated were illegal,
and which stated among its objects:
To employ a legislative apent, who, In an
honorable way, shall present the just grievances
of the employes of the New York Street Clean
ing Department to the Htate Legislature as a
body, and its members severally, for the pur
pose of securing such legislation as woulrl al
leviate conditions under which the employes of
said department at present suffer.
Secretary Cardos also states the objects of the
union to be:
To better the. condition of its members as
employes of the Street Cleaning Department in
securing them higher wages, proper conditions
of employment, payment for overtime work; to
protect them from undue encroachment on their
rights as human beings, citizens and members
of an important municipal department on the
part of such superiors who may be inclined to
disregard the same; to organize solidify and
unite the employes of the Street Cleaning De
partment in one body, so that they may all con
tribute toward the protection of any one of the
members from any acts of injustice to which he
may be subjected; to agitate on behalf of and
in the interests of the sweepers, drivers and
hostlers of the New York Street Cleaning De
pareraent In order to secure for them all such
advantages as any first class labor union en
deavors to secure to its members.
Mr. Cardos also stated that the union was a
Knights of Labor organization.
To this letter Captain Gibson wrote the fol
lowing brief response, declaring the union as its
objects were outlined to him was illegal:
I have received your letter which outlines the
purposes for which your organization is solicit
ing contributions from the business community
of the city <>f New York, and this is just exactly
what I Inferred from you and your associates
when you were before me a short time ago, and
in this connection I v. ish to state that your pur
poses are positively illegal. Yrur acts would be
at variance with the provisions of the charter,
and your attention is called to the last clause of
Section W>, which distinctly prohibits just ex
actly wh.it you say your purpose is.
Only yesterday Captain Gibson heard of two of
these agents who had represented themselves as
collecting for the Street Cleaning Department,
going to a business man to get $30. The man
informed Captain Gibson, and he sent Superin
tendent Thomas Shanton up to meet the man,
an appointment having beer; made for yesterday.
The man did not appear, but said he would later.
Charles Paul, who was caught at the game ones
before ani sentenced to a year and a half, r«

THE PRINT CLOTH MARKET.
i ßy Telegraph to The Tribune. I
Fall River. Mass., Aug. Trading in the print
cloth market has been quiet this week. With prices
in the cotton market going down, buyers have
shown a decreased Interest, especially In contracts.
The demand has been mainly for nearby deliveries,
buyers generally calling for only such goods as
they absolutely needed. Frequently the mills were
unable to give the deliveries needed. The produc
tion is well sold for two months ahead, and it is
still much below normal, owing to the weather and
scarcity of help combined.
The totnl of sales is 'estimated at about 125.009
pieces. Wiuo goods were mainly sold, and th« d«
liverles are generally near by. Manufacturers here
are inclined to hold out for prices on the basis of
3V»c for regulars and 5"4 c for standard wide goods.
The market is firm at those Hcures.
