w.ct business with men who at such a prlco were
subject fee removal "at the whim of a covein
or." So the friends of the bill can see no spe
cial reason why the salar>' limit should DOt "«*'
t«ised to -■•«(<*k( Home t-hanges may be advo
cated whltlj w.m1.l make the bill even more
drastic than it Is COW. Some lawyers are known
to beve .. • .. considering sti adapts of the
"y«*sschus«;i> law, which would, if added to
the bill. squeeze considerable of the "water" out
at the capitalization of the public service cor
porations.
After this hearing the sponsors for the bill
viii set to work in committee considering the
changes suggested. They hope to set this done
in a week or two. so the bill may be reported
for consideration in both houses at. the earliest
possible opportunity. And th« general belief
enioi:*: Hughes men in that no friend of the
«Jovernor'a will consent to any change devital
izing the measure in any way.
The continuation of the Kelsey ease Is set for
Friday, but the real test in that affair will come
on Tuesday, when the senate Judiciary Coin
mittr^» will decide whether to issue subpoenas
for other Witnesses. The Governor's friends are
trytaff to bold the fjommittee to the original
reaotatlon ndoiiled by the committee— to hear
Ke'yy. consider wtoatereT depositions and docu
nantsi he might submit, and then essex tfie de
fence. Uoie by little the Kelsey people have
otKa!ned their own way. Kelsey was examined
under oath. He has been allowed to submit as
evidence a fair share of the records and corre
spondence in thn bsssawses Department. i^a.<=t
Friday Senator Davis tacitly consented to th*
Introduction of other witnesses: but Senators
Page. Armstrong and Hinman will fight this In
th* executive meeting on Tuesday. Further
de-lay in this caea seems almost certain to result
1n a vote In favor of Kelsey. Many here believe
the story aflcat for the JeM; day or two that if
this is the result li»< will resign his office »nd
take a lucrative place in a. Sew York Insurance
company.
On Tuesday the F.ir.eham Police bill win come
up tar final passage. Few new arguments
against i' are. expected. Its passage is almost
certain: but last week, when it was advanced to
third reading. Senator Page indicated that some
Senators were '•slipping from their moorings.'
Much talk shoot -boodle" still persists here.
Then. too. the Blnghsm bill Is involved lx^ the
areneral legislative situation, since it has been
common talk in legislative circles that the op
ponents of the Police bill would like to trad»
their votes against Kelsey or the Utilities bill
for votes against the Police bill. Bo friends of
the measure will be a trifle uneasy until they
hear the vote en It read by t*i« clerk of the
Senate.

MANY EXCISE ARRESTS.
LIQUOR FLOWS FREELY.
"Rathskeller Open" Invites Patrons
to Tenderloin Saloon.
There were forty-two excise arrests In New
York City yesterday. This was twice the num
ber made the week before. Three of these were In
the precinct where Magistrate Whitman made hla
sensational raid a week ago Saturday. Five of
the arrests were made in Brooklyn, one In Rich
mond and none in The Bronx.
Leaving out of consideration the rainstorm,
yesterday was by BO means a "dry Sunday" In
the Tenderloin. Despite Magistrate Whitman's
raids of last week an- his published throat not
to rest until the excise law was rigidly enforced
In every precinct throughout the city, the Ten
derloin saloonkeepers were apparently undis
mayed until a nun. who was said to be ;tti envoy
of Magistrate Whitman. caused the arrest of a
keeper at Sixth avenue and 2Sth street
Instantly th© rumor ppread throughout the Ten
derloin that Magistrate Whitman had 13* envoys
looking for excise violations, and the saloons
which hid r>r-«>:j doing a rushing business all day
closed up tight. This was 11 p. in. and it was al
most impossible to Ret a drink in any Tenderloin
saloon after that hour.
The saloon that caused the trouble openly dis
played v. sign on h lamppost in front of tbe door,
reeding. "RatliFkeller open to-day." The place Rid
a running business, undisturbed or th» police, until
about 11 o'clock lent night, when a young man
entered the rathskeller, where a dozen men were
sitting at tables drinking whiskey and beer, two
bartender* attending to their wants. The young
man sat down at a table and ordered a glass ■ I
beer. After drinking it he sauntered out. and a.
short distance from where 'he sign hung h- met
Patrolman James Kelllv. who was on post. Walk
ing up to Heilly. »:ie young man said: "Officer. T
know of an excise violation on your post. if 1
make a complaint, will you make an arrest?"
Rflilv said he would, and' the, young man led him
back to the saloon, where he pointed out a man
as said be wanted arrested. The three then went
to tho station bouse, where the young man said
ho was Lesser B. Ward, of So. 633 East 150 th
street. Sergeant McCullon asked him If liij wished
to ike n complaint. Ward said he did. and the
sergeant, then ordered the prisoner to bo arraigned.
He gave his name as John Adams, a rail estate
dealer, of No. 1900 Lexington avenue, which the
police believe to be fictitious. The saloon belongs
to Saaeerath Brothers. The charge on the blotter
gain si Adams was "causing to r>e sold to com
plainant a glass of lager beer in the rathskeller of
tho saloon at 28th street and Sixth avenue in vio
lation of the law."
After tlio prisoner had been disposed of Mr.
Ward was asked by a Tribune renorter If h<» was
connected with Magistrate Whitman In any capa
city. He 6aid he was not now. but had been once.
Asked in what way, lie replied with a D-ml!e that
he bad studied law under him.
Mr. Ward went on to say that be had the oriest
made because he was overcome by the audacity
of the place in displaying « Flgn on a lamppost
announcing that the rathskeller was open, and that
be at first thought it was a joke, but was amazed
when he entered tho p!a<--» sad saw men and women
Fitting at tables openly drinking intoxicating
liquors. He. said he ordered some beer and paid
for it. and then went out nnd got the policeman.
He; said he believed the prisoner was one of the
proprietors of the place. Ward said ho. had no
connection with . any civic societies, and ordered
ill- arrest in a private capacity. lie «d<l>d that h<»
hod five other places on his list.
Magistrate Whitman Will be at the Jefferson
Market police court to-day. It was learned yester
day that he lias been giving brief lessons in law.
especially the excise law. to more than a hundred
men. who will net under his Instructions in ait
effort to keep the five precincts in th.- Jefferson
Market court district clean so far as excise viola
tions are concerned.
Early this morning Mr. Ward went over to the
30th Precinct and made a complaint against Ben
jamin Levy, the bartender of a saloon at No. 563
Seventh avenue, who, he said, served him with a
glass of seer.
DR. J. W. HILL FOR BUSSE.
Tells of the Fight Against Hearst in
Mayoralty Campaign.
The Rev. Dr. J. W. Hill, pastor of the Janes
Methodist Church, in Brooklyn, while In Chicago
on Tuesday last Inspecting a new organ to be
installed In his church this coming summer, was
"drafted" by the Republican campaign manag
ers, and made three addresses in favor of Busse
and against Dunne, the Hearst candidate for
Mayor. The principal address was at a great
meeting in the Auditorium. Dr. Hill was solicit •
Yd to put in all of his time campaigning, but de
clined, on account of home duties. The Chicago
papers say that Dr. Hill's speeches d!d much
to arouse the Republicans and make Hearst the
issue of the campaign. Dr. Hill made a hundred
speeches In the lirst McKlnley campaign, and in
li»00 was the principal sneaker when a reception
was given for Theodore Roosevelt in Chicago.
When Dr. Hill was seen last night in Brooklyn
he said:
The campaign In Chicago is one of the. hottest
that has ever been seen there. The election Is on
Tuesday of this week, and I think the Republi
cans will win. The Republicans did not wake
up till last week, but they are awake now. In
the early part of tho fight the most of the argu
ment was on the quesion of municipal owner
ship, but last week Xiearstlsm became the Issue,
and it will continue to be the Issue until Tuesday
night, when I think there will bo a political
funeral similar to tho one in thin state last fall.
ITALIAN GANGS UNITED.
Black Hand and Mafia Worked as
One in Buzzuffi Kidnapping.
Regarding the dispatch received in this city res
terday from Italy linking the Sidllan Mafia with
tli« Black Hand of New York. in the kidnapping of
Tony Buzzuffl. the boy's father, John Buzzuffl. Uio
Italian banker, of No. 339 East C2d street, saM that
he bad already been Informed of this by the Italian
Consul. Th- dispatch referred to an Italian Nun
tio Minoro, who was arrested by the ponce of Pa
lermo, Implicating him in the murder of SMva
lore Lunijo. whose body was found in the marshes
near Newark shortly after th« return vi tin- kid
napped boy.
Letters were found showing that Minoro belonged
to the Black Hand if New York, and that he had
been sent tack to Sicily when the New York police
had got on Ills trail. The authorities had received
letters designating Minoro as tho murderer of ono
Marches* in Partlnieo province, on Juiy V., 1906
They were Informed that Miuoro had returned
from the United States a few weeks before the
murder, and they decided to raid his house. When
Miuoro's wife heard of this she threw a number of
letter* belonging to Minoro Into a ditch at thn
back of th»« ptoee. The police, who were stationed
■Mar, recovered them.
The totters showed that Minoro had knows Lunco
wli'.le In New York. The latter, who was In charse
of the kidnapped boy, allowed him to oncape. from
a flat at No. 318 East CJ»th street, near his father's
home. A ransom of 120.000 was demanded but
before the kidnappers could bring the. banker to
terms ti.a boy escaped. It Is said that for Lunjro's
negligence In allowing the escape lie was stabbed
to death.
Buezufn said yesterday: "I received a communi
cation four months ago from the Italian Consul
of New York asking me to come to his office. I
learned from the consul that the police at Palermo
had arrested this man Minor.), implicating him
in the murder of Lungo. He showed me a photo
graph of Minoro and asked if I would let my son
Tony sea it.
•"l'lie consul thought that Minoro may have been
tn© abductor. I brought Tony down the next day
to the consul's office, but he failed to identify
Minoro as being the kidnapper. My son saw only
one. man at th« time of the abduction. That man
was Lungo. When Lunso s body was found In
Newark the police came to my house and made
me bring Tony over there to Identify the body.
Soon as Tony looked at It lie said. 'Papa, that
"Judging from those letters found at Mlnoro's
home. I am satisfied that he was the leader of the
cane. Minoro had hi* malt sent to my bank and
called for It ever* day. The fact that he knew
Lung", and knowing that I was wealthy, it can
plainly b« Keen that the kidnapping of my son was
a, concocted scheme of his to obtain money from
me Lungo was a tool for him and did 'all his
dirty work. 1 expect to hear from Italy again
It was said last night at the Detective Bureau
that no official report had been made to them, and
they had alsi» not received word from the Italian
police regarding the finding of Minoro' s letters.

pie dress that Mrs. Gonorowsky bought on
Thursday, and it only cost nine eighty-five, too.
My. but she's a stylish dresser!"
"Yes." paid Hermann, the inarticulate.
She of the four hundred thousand pointed out
another of the four hundred. "Look wot that
one has. on. Just. see her hat. All there is to it
is that straw like what I sold for three twenty
nine yesterday, when I bad to. mark things
down, and I don't believe that the' cache-peigne
of tulle she got on it cost more than one forty
nine. Them roses is the kind I sold to Mrs.
Markowitz for thirty-four apiece when she
went out of mourning for Meyer Karkow, who
was her brother's wife's sister-in-law."
"Sure!" said tho distressed Hermann, wonder
ing at which one he should frown disapprov
ingly.
THE COST OF "STYLE."
• Now. there's something real tasty and styl
ish." commented Rosie, as she caught sight of a
Sixth avenue "creation." 'Them feathers Is the
real thing. I dor.'t believe they cost less than
five-sixty either and she's got seven of them.
too. Bay. look at that one, now; I mean that
ono in the blue automobile. I*ll just bet that
she copied that from the one I had In my win
dow before I sold it to Miss Ahrahamovilch.
Ever since them rubberneck wagons began to
brine them people downtown, they do nothln"
but steal our Ideas. I declare, a real enter
prlsin'. stylish milliner ain't got no chance any
more, when them people come down and steal
our idea.""
"She's no good, anyhow-, kid." said Hermann
the faithful.
"The girl In the blue automobile with the dis
tingay looldn' Rent.'"
"Huh, be Is v. real gent, all right. He solid
that rink Top champagne. I seen him opening
it up at the Mot- Levy ball last year." \
"They say he wears red s!!k socks nearly all
the time, i wonder If he's got some on now.
Why don't you try to b« stylish like them gents,
Hermann?"
"Say. look here, kid." replied Hermann, driven
to bay at last, "what da you think the gang
would do if I wore a rig like that? Say. what*
the matter with you. anyhow? Ain't tins vest
all right? Didn't l pay good money for It at
lbs Doctor's, and didn't he tell me that I
couldn't get another like it anywhere? Would
this stone I Rot In my tie put yer eye out? What
are yer givin' us, anyhow?*'
"That green tie of yours Is real tasty." said
Rose, admiringly, pouring oil on the troubled
waters. Bhe hail picked it out, anyway.
CROWDS BLOCK PROGRESS.
It"*!* and Hermann kept on up the avenue
Their progress was slow, for from curb to stoop
line the walks were crowded, in front of the
big, fashionable churches the walks were
blocked. Progress one way or the other often
was halted for five or ten minutes, until finally.
as one couple after another disentangled them
selves and moved north and south, the knot
slowly straightened out.
Only two of the Easter parade* did Basis and
Hermann loso before they got hack to their be
loved Grand street. Ju*t below 59th street and
around the Circle paraded tho Colored Branch of
the "Vashladiea" Union, accompanied by the hard
resting husbands. The. husbands wore "dia
monds" and yellow spats, but what ths bigger
and better half wore i* past description. The
color schema of that part of the town looked
Ilka an Intoxicated rainbow — and then BOOM
more. Down In Chinatown the Hip Kings and
the On Lcongs polished up their "forty-lives"
and put a better edge on their cleavers, and
longed for tbe removal of the edict from the
dearly beloved and most worshipful empress
that any Tong mun killing his rival here would
have their living ancestors sent posthaste to
join those «-urii«-r departed. Bo In the mean
time they took Chinese Illy bulbs to Sunday
schools for their teachers In exchange for Easter
lilies.
Rosl»» and Hermann did not reach Grand
street until late In the afternoon. Reals drew a
sigh of relief. "It's good to get back," she said.
"Here's where you see the real people, after all."
From the Bowery eastward they went. "I
don't know." said Hermann after a while, "but
somehow or another It don't seem right. It's the.
same <•!,] street, and It's the same old crowd,
bin It don't seem right, nohow."
"It don't," Roelo agreed. "All the girls are
out, too. I wonder what tii" matter Is!"
They picked their way between purple skirts
and wonderfully striped trousers almost to Allen
street.
THE DEAR DEPARTED.
"Sure, I know," Hermann broke out at last.
"Glostein ain't with us nr» more. There's the
llshln' club over there with them so stylish
mourning bands on the coats. Sure, won't the
pinccklers miss him, though. He was a good
man, yes. And we won't see Charley Lynch,
any more. Two good fellers, yes. No, it isn't
what it was last year.*"
"There's Louis Zeltner over there with them
fine gloves and the new cane. 1 guess lie's
goto' for some goulash."
"Yes, ha always does at !» o'clock. There's
'FlorrlS Sullivan,' too. Him in that check suit;
see him? There's only eight checks on tho whole
suit."
"Ach. and look at Rosle. the. lawyer. Did yar
ever see his new diamond? He wears one every
Passover. My. but he must be rich, and he's
president of the Essex Market Bar Association.
Such a splendid man; and there's the Duke of
Essex street; Who's that behind him in the
purple princess and the yellow hat? Why.
that's Rosle Oshcolarowsky, whose father runs
the polite, butcher «hot In Orchard street. And
there's Mrs. Schnuppman, who runs th« milli
nery emporium two doors from me, but Bhe
don't get tho stylish trade that I do, even If she
did hire an automobile, to stand in front of the
door half an hour every day."
"Say. kid," broke In Hermann, upon whom so
much fashion was forcing a dazed expression,
"let's go back to Lorber's and get one of them
dinners. Let's have poultry with it, too. We
only do this once a year.
And the Easter parade was over.
THREE MEM ARRESTED.
While the. parade on Fifth avenue was at Its
height three men mingling In the vast throng
attracted the attention of Detective Sergeant
Dunn, of the Central Office. Dunn saw them
jostle, against a man who came out of St
Thomas* Episcopal Church, at 53d street, ar
rested them and took them to the East Slat
street station. They said they were Henry-
Parker, of No. 277 West 118 th street; Arthur
Williams, of No. 213 West 46th street, and
Frank Breen. of No. 1 Chatham square. The
man Jostled gave his name as H. S. L. Bralnard
of No. 15 West 67th street.
