Warning Letter from Havemeyer. .
To show the lack of responsibility of the
rr.as on trial for the frauds, Mr. Graham
referred to a letter written en November
.:*. 1596, by Mr. Haveraeyer to meat Ger
"tracit. former superintendent of the re
' f.r)*r?\ who is one of the defendants. It
follow: :
"Mr. Heike to-<lay brings to my atten
tion LI? belief that the government wciphts
«re more liberal hen than anywhere else.
L't the povernmerjt weiphers do their own
work. Of course. I know you have no con-
Tf-cioT, with them, but let me warn you and
ray employe of ours apainst having an:
thing m hatever to do with them."
?-Ir. Stimson pounced on this letter when
"eike came, into his hands. He asked why
the letter «-a« written: what the special
Teascti {or it was. Mr. Heike said he be
"ii*f<e^ it wa* due tn his examination of
f-<- Oricber i mem.
"Tou met me here on November IS, I^o6.
In this room and where you are now sit
t'r.g, - witness. There was prosecution of

The cr.iy overt act. Mr. Graham said, as

of a. national bank must have the indorse
ment of a. United States Judg* as to th«
character of the applicants, and that, hav
ing found the applicants In this case to be
reputable men, he had indorsed the appli
The Controller based his refusal on an
adverse report made by C. A. ITanna. a.
national bank examiner in charge of the
local district.
Mr. Shears Eaid that the application had
been * rejected because the Controller had
ronfidered the banking field here amply
covered by existing banks. Tie denied th

Miller. Cromwell and Gresser In
dignant at Plan.
Borough Presidents Miller. Gresser and
Cromwell entered a loud protest yesterday
at the meeting of the Board of Estimate,
when President Mitchel of the Board of
Aldermen offered a resolution providing
that all officers or boards empowered to
spend money out of the corporate stock
budget must lay before the board the plans
and specifications for proposed improve
ments before advertising for bids.
That wan bad enough, but what th.c bor
ough presidents objected to particularly
was the provision that during the ten
weeks* adjournment of tne board in the
summer all plans must go to the Con
troller for his approval. "Why, it will
main ■ regular csar out of him," raid
President Grosser.
" But the Mayor favored the proposition,
and the Controller eaid he would hold up
the corporate stuck budget until the reso
lution was passed, so the opposition was
Smarting under the attempt of the Con
troller at th*» last meeting to take the
management of the topographical bureaus
out of the hands of the borough presidents.
Mr. Miller introduced a resolution yester
day providing for the transfer of control
of the Bureau of Municipal Investigation
and Statistics from the Controller's office
to the Board of Estimate.
But the Controller did not Been anxious
to be relieved of this duty, and moved
dryly that the resolution be put over for
consideration until December 31, IPI3. which
is the last day of the present administra
tion. The Mayor thought* there might bo
«cine discussion on the proposition and
deferred It for a week.
Headed by chief Croker, one hundred and
fifty firemen in uniform crowded to the
rail when the matter of increasing their

After adding MOV"""' to the allotment of

The men themselves caught the spirit of i
their leader, and with shoulders squared,
heads erect and eyes quickly shifted to the
right, on command, as they passed the re
viewing stand line after line of the five
thousand on parade swept by with almost
the rhythm of regulars. The men were all
in spotless white, and the hundreds' of de
partment carts, which had received a fresh
coat of paint last night, and we!! groomed
horses, made a showing which Mayor Gay
nor said had happily surprised him.
"I am very much pleased nd surprised,"
said the Mayor^after the parade had passed.
"I expected to see a lot of men In line, and
that was all. and had no idea that all the
horses and teams were to join the parade,
It was merely an incident that the Mayor
and Commissioner Edwards were fifteen
minutes late in reaching the reviewing
stand in a large municipal automobile,
under escort of a crack company .of
mounted police. The parade was due at
Madison Square at S o'clock, and had

cision, as the men from The Bronx, In the.
opinion of spectators . as well as officials,
were cons>icuou? for their orderly lines and
polished equipments. Brooklyn took second
place and Manhattan third.
Despite the unfavorable weather thou
sands of persons lined both Fides of Fifth
avenue all along thfi line of march, from
BKh street to Washington Square, and the
different divisions all came in for their
share of applause. Several of the cart
drivers proudly carried large bouquets
which had been thrown into their wagons
by admirers along the way. . . j.
The lines were formed two d«ep In"sepa
rate companies, and 'the captain of . each
saluted the. Mayor in true military fashion

turned the salutation in each instance, and
his features never relaxed until a minia
ture model of the regulation department
cart, drawn by a tiny : pony bedecked in
flowers and ribbons, appeared at the head
of the Manhattan division.
It was one of the, pleasantest features of
the whole show.: and Mayor tiaynor joined
in the laugh and hearty applause which
followed the. studied salute of nine-year-old

the reins. He is the son of Abraham Lin

Sees Pronounced Change of Sen
timent Among Assemblymen,
"Growing Feeling That Extra
Session Will Save Critical
' mr 7>;€?raph " to Th» Tribune.]
Albany. June' 3.— Assemblyman George A
Green, Introducer in the lower, house of
Governor Hughes' s direct primary bill,
was here to-day to attend hearings on
some of his legislation. He said that if
the subject of "direct nominations was rec
ommended to the extra session of the
Legislature for consideration he and other
direct nominations men would urge the
passage of the so-called Cobb measure,
adopted by the caucus of Republican Sen
ators and subsequently passed by the
Senate. ...
Mr. Green shares with marjv other direct
nominations advocates confidence that the
extra session will adopt the Cobb bill. He
pointed out to-day that to Republicans,
the political outlook was distinctly n«-'t
pleasing at the present tjme. The fact
that the political complexion of the Con
gressional delegation from this state, as
wel! as the state <icket. easily might depend
on the proper response to the demand for
a real direct nominations law was bringing
about a "Fecond thought' distinctly en
couraging, he said.
"There has been a pronounced change rf
eentlment among the members of Assem
bly since th» adjournment of the regular
session," paid Mr. Green •'The vote taken
on the eve of the adjournment did not
fairly represent the deliberate opinion of
the member?. They were tired, and many
rf them were impatient at the* night ses
sion. Their main thought was to dispose
of the bill and p^away. Under these cir
cumstances many of the friends of direct
nominations voted against the Committee
on Judiciary bill, notwithstanding the
fact that the Senate hsd made it a party
"Not a Compromise Measure."
"This bill has been spoken of as a com
promise bill. As a matter of fact, it was
not. a compromise in any sense. It con- j
tamed all the. essential features of the bill
introduced by Senator Hinman and myself
in practically the language of our bill.
The difference between them was that the.
Judiciary Committee's bill did not include
the state ticket, the city ticket and can
didates for Judicial positions. It provided,
however, for a state-wide enrolment, for
a ballot which gave each party voter an
equal chance by permitting him to vote
directly for candidates for nominations or
for delegates, instead of the ballot, in the
Meade-Phillips bill, which compelled him
to vote for bosses rather, than for the can
didates themselves, and for the direct elec
tion In^ the primary of members of party
committees. It also contained all the nu
merous safeguards of our bill. Its passage
would Insure the election of a Legislature
nominated by direct vote, and. as the oppo
nents of direct nominations well knew, such
a Legislature .would not hesitate to extend
the. principle to' all. offices. .
"There is. a growing feeling am^ng the
Republican members of the legislature
that the extra session will save a critical
situation. They realize that ''unless some
measure providing for genuine direct nomi
nations is passed the outlook for next fall,
especially in many dose districts, will not
be. encouraging,: and the fact that the com
plexion of the next House of Representa
tive, to say nothing. of the entire state
ticket, .will depend .on th« result next fall
has brought about a second thought which
is encouraging to the friends of direct
Calls Situation Confused. ■
"If the subject of direct nominations is
brought ' before th* extra session, as we
assume that it will be. we shall strongly
urge the passage of such a measure as the,
Governor and the Republican majority in
the Senate have favored. The combination
of a minority of Republicans and of the
Democrats in the Senate to put through the
Meade-Phillips bill, which never was in
tended seriously, had the effect of con
fusing the situation. I am confident that
a substantial measure will he passed in
time to take effect this year."
Evidences of the "second thought" indi
cated by Mr. Green are coming to light
dally. Whether this will he serious enough
to enable the Governor's friends in the
Assembly to pass -a direct nominations bill
cannot be determined at this time. Certainly
there can be little, doubt about the senti
ment for this reform in some of the dis
tricts whose representatives voted against
It. judging by information received here
and the general tone of the upstate news
papers. It is apparent that a reaction
much stronger than was expected by the
machine politicians who killed direct nomi
nations legislation has per in against the
methods used by them. This, coupled with
a desire on the part of Republicans to
take such action as may bring credit to
the party and th« unquestioned demand
for direct nominations, advocates. of the re
form think, may be counted on to produce
the requisite number of votes at the extra

Mcrp Likely In Come of Investi

Hopes for Action That WM Pro

FTanklin Mac.Ve.agh. Secretar- cf the ■
Treasury, who is in this cit'-, sa:d yester

of things in the Custom Bousa business .

■ "The administration.' 1 he said, "hopes to
put this port and all others on a real busi
ness basis. The great problem confront- '
ing us la the rehabilitation of this service, j
That requires much consideration and.
perhaps, compromise."
He was ?ee n in the afternoon by the
Treasury agent having in charge the in
vestigation of the importation of Panama
hats. The Secretary has sent to Washing
ton for two men to help the agent now on
the case, and it is expected that all the
evidence will be turned in to Henry A.
Wise, the United States Attorney, for ac
tion, in a short time. Mr. Wise, it was
said, had been informed about the inquiry
on his last visit to Washington, and on
his return took up the case to aid the
Treasury agent. A few witnesses have al
ready been examined at the Federal Build

The Secretary of the Treasury said that
the inquiry at the Appraiser's Stores by
the commission appointed by him was a
revival of a Treasury rul» that was dis
continued several years <?■?'■> for no appar
ent reason. The purpose was especially to
revise the business management and to
increase th" efficiency of the men in the
service. There would also be an elimina
tion of all favoritism, he declared.
"We are especially interested In the Ap
praiser's office," Mr MacVeagh declared,
"because this is the port which has shown
that a thorough m-erhaullng of the service
is necessary- Whatever we profit by the
investigation here will be extended to other

test on the Ilavemeyer . * .Elder docks,
where the sugar frauds were committed,
the Secretary, said that he hoped the
weighing machine would meet all require
ments. He may visit the docks to-day to
see the scale in operation. The question
of pensions, which came up here when
Collector L,oeb was compelled to demote
many employes because of age, was in
quired about. . . ■ ..
"The President is> interested in the mat
ter.", said Mr. Mac-Yeagh, "and there Is
really a chance of petting action. Nat
urally we arp tied up by Congress, but .1
fcelle'v<! that Congress has a wronr impres
sion of the situation. I believe that the
pensions could be paid without an addi
tional outlay. We are already pavine pen
sions. We cannot slaughter the men whos
age has lowered their, efficiency I havr
already decided upon efficiency tests in my
office, but held them, up in. the hope that
the retiring bill would soon be passed."
Mr.. Mac.Veagh will stay in the city, until
to-morrow, it .was said last evening. He
will devote all his time to the customs
business ■while here. He received reports
yesterday from the commission examining
conditions at the Appraiser's Stores and
from Collector ,L.oeb regarding the recent
changes he made in his department.

Court to-day sent a legal point connect

It was stated that IT!' out of 6,022 depos
itors, representing $1,615,522 In deposits, had
assented to a plan of scaling down their
deposits to S3 per cent and the wiping out
of the surplus. But Judge Sheldon said
be was not sure that a decree in equity
dissolving the Injunction according to
the agreement would not taket away the
common law rights of the remaining de
positors, *•"■ li* reserved the. entire ques
tion for the full bench.

pleaded guilty to manslaughter for killing
his wife in a fit of despondency, was yes
