The arrest of Cella came as a surprise,

AlMßxns connected both Louis and Angelo
Cella, as -well as S. W. Adler. a broker, of
this city, with, the Standard Stock and
Grain Dealers, and his statement discon
certed the defence considerably.
He was examined by Henry S. Robbing.

having the courtroom, when Marshal
Henkel stepped up to Louis A. Cella and
placed him under arrest. He served a war
rant issued on complaint of George Scar
borough, special assent of the Department
of Justice, charging that while a witness on
his own. -behalf in removal proceedings
Louis A- Celia tad committed wilful per
Counsel for Cella Protests.
"It is an outrageous proceeding to arrest
this- man -while the case against him is still
in progress." said Howard Taylor. Cella
•was taken to Marshal Henkel's office and
later arraigned before Commissioner Alex
ander, who had issued the warrant. Mr.
-Wimple. Assistant District Attorney, asked
that bail be fixed at. $10,000. but after argu
ment Commissioner Alexander decided to
l.old Cella in *s.flCK> bail for hearing on July
IS at 10:30 a. m.
In his complaint Special Agent Scar
borough sets forth that Cella, denied being
a Shareholder, a director or an officer of the
Standard Stock an<*. Grain Dealers, <»r that
he in any -way directed its policy, whereas
the affiant is informed and has reason to be
lieve that the said Cella has been a share
holder and at various times a director and
cff.ee'- of the company. Another count in
the charge hi that Cella denied receiving
profits or dividends from the concern.
whereas on February 7. 191 ft he did receive
a large, sum as a dividend.
Cella ■ took his arrest calmly and his
trother Angeio quickly obtained bail, which

Stork Exchange, and had received $30,000 i
from Adler on February 7. but. he did not
know that this sum came from the Stand
ard Stock and Grain Dealers.
When Altemus was called as a witness
Howard Taylor protested that the govern
ment had already closed its case, but Com
missioner Shields overruled him. Altemus
was formerly employed by the Cella Com
mission Company, which did business in
Mfesoori and New Jersey. The Jersey com
pany was succeeded by the Standard Stock
and Grain company, and Altemus was j
made president and manager. He was not
at all clear as to how he had come to be
appointed president, but he did say that he
had no interest in the profits, but received
a weekly salary. He retained office until

Though the company was not very profit
able, xl took in money sometimes. When
money was needed, said the witness, it came
in a roundabout way from Mr. Ad-er"s of

out on Mr. Taylor's objection, but Altemus
was allowed to explain that when he need
ed money he telephoned to E. W. Adler.
Sometimes Adler's cashier attended to the
matter and sometimes Angelo Cella did.
Adler told the witness that Angelo was
representing Louis Cella in the transactions
and the bnothers exchanged cipher tele

LOUIS A. CELLA, ON LEFT, AND HIS BROTHER, ANGELO CELLA.
Outside of the Federal Building yesterday after the former had been arrested on a
New Tork and Boston, pleaded not guilty
to three secret indictments when they ap
peared before Jt^dge De Coursey, in the
Superior Criminal Court, to-day. The three
indictments charge larceny in 120 counts of
5500,000, the maintenance of bucketshops
and conspiracy to steal. Following their
pleading not guilty, the defendants were
held in $20,000 bail each for hearing in Octo
ber. Bail was furnished in each case.
The three men, with" Charles H. Rollings,
a former member of the Governor's Coun
cil and a member of the firm of Sederquist.
Barry & Co., appeared in court in this city
on October 4 of last year on similar indict
ments. Lately Assistant District Attorney
Webber discovered that they had not been
asked to plead to the indictments, and ac
cordingly new indictments were returned.
In addition to the indictment of Seder
<juist, Curtis and Barry. D. Eustace Bige
low and Perley L* Freeman, now in the
brokerage business in New York City, were
also indicted in connection with the same
case. The state will immediately seek to
extradite the New York men.
MILK HALF A CENT HIGHER
City Dealers Pay Shippers 3V 2
Cents a Quart.
The M:!k Exchange, decided at a special
meeting yesterday afternoon that the con
dition of the market warranted the pay
ment of VA c^nts a quart to the shipper in
the as-oeat zone, or SI 71 a forty-quart can
delivered in New York. Thl? is an Increase
of half a cent above the price which pre
vailed through June, and is a remarkable
pri.e. for tnis season of the year.
It is not usual to change the exchange
rate more than a quarter of a cent at a
time. The situation, however, was unusual,
for the market was so short that any one
who had a can of milk to spare could get
for It $3, or exactly twice what it cost de
d in the city.
I c -rage and the consequent high
prl c are due to two causes. The prices of
burner and cheese have been abnormally
hii:\ for the season of the year. It has
been asserted that this was caused by the
packing interests, which were willing to
buy in larse quantities of dairy products in
order to increase the sales of their substi
tutes manufactured frqpi the byproducts
01 the packing houses.
At any rate the demand for milk for
manufacturing- purposes has been so good
and the prices paid for it for butter and
cheese so high that the milk dealers have
been obliged to meet the competition.
A representative of the Alexander Camp
bell Milk Company, of Brooklyn, said yes
terday that his concern had not raised the
pri c of ndlk above eight cents, but that
-ical price was probably nine cents.
U. S. SAILORJ\!ATURALIZED
Man from the Ohio Renounces
Allegiance to Denmark.
Not even In the memory of "Judge" Mc-
Nefrny, chief clerk of Part 11, Special Term
of the Supreme Court, and that means
some thirty y<^ars, has an American man
of-warsman applied to the court to be
made a citizen of the United States. So
yesterday, when a natty appearing sailor,
dressed in the uniform of Uncle Sam's
navy and with the name Ohio on his hat
band, appeared before Justice Ford to be
made a citizen he attracted some attention.
The applicant was Achilles Tallman, a
Ball we of Copenhagen. Denmark. But Tall
man was not a fair-haired Dane; his hair
and mustache were black and he looked
more like a member of the Latin race than
a Dane. Tailman answered intelligently
the questions of Justice Ford to determine
his fitness to be an American citizen. The
court accepted him and then Tallman re
nounced allegiance to the King of Denmark
and promised to uphold the Constitution of
the United State? Then, with a pleased
expression, the new citizen ran up the
stairs to the Naturalization Bureau to get
"I have be<=n in this country fifteen
years," said TaJlman. after the court for

NEEDS MORE"BUG HUNTERS"
Park Department Is Still Fight
ing the Tussock Moth.
Although he does not believe, the present
tussock moth or caterpillar scourge is near
ly so bad as the "epidemic" of 190 S. Dr.
H B. Southwick, entomologist of the Park
Department, will greatly increase his force
at once to fight the pest.
Park Commissioner Higgins of The Bronx
said yesterday that the caterpillars had de
scended with a vengeance on the park and
street trees In his borough and that his
means of fighting them were so limited they
had gained great headway.
"I have three hundred thousand street
trees besides those in the park," said Com
missioner Higgins, "and with less than half
a dozen spraying machines it is easy to
see how the caterpillars have increased."
The solution Dr. Southwick is using to
rid the trees of the caterpillars is com
posed of fifteen pounds of arsenate of lead
to a hundred gallons of water. The ento
mologist says he has noticed each year
that the caterpillars are much worse in
some parts of the city than others. At
tention is given these places at the very
beginning of hot weather.
This year, as in former years. Mount
Morris park and Riverside Park have been
as badly infested as any other parts of the
According to the figures of the entomolo
gist, there are 1,900 varieties of noxious
insects preying oil the city's trees. Those
most destructive to foliage are the tussock
moth, aphids. elm scale insect, oyster shell
bark louse, datanes, vanessas and the elm
borer, or leopard moth.
Not counting park trees, there are in the
neighborhood of seventeen thousand street
trees that must be looked after. Those on
upper Broadway and upper Seventh ave
nue have begun to show the damage dons
by the caterpillars.
BEGINS TO REFORM COURTS
McAdoo Outlines Plans — Trouble
Over Juvenile Arrests.
Plans for carrying out reforms embodied
In the inferior courts bill were made public
yesterday by Chief Police Magistrate Mc-
Adoo, of Manhattan and The Bronx.
There will be night and day courts for
women at Jefferson market, a night court
for men and ior the domestic relations at
Yorkville, complaints will be drawn in pri
vate rooms and summonses will be more
freely used than warrants. The Police
Commissioner may issue Identification
cards to persons of known character in
order to do away with needless arrest, for
instance, in the case of speeding motorists.
The chief magistrate also announced that
he would have an officer on the first floor
of the old Police Headquarters, at Xo. 300
The new law is already causing trouble.
j Conferences have been held between city
; officials and officers of the anti-cruelty so

} rested in any part of New York City be
j taken before the Children's Court, if it is
jin session, or otherwise to the rooms of
■ the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
At the conference yesterday Corporation
Counsel Watson said that the Legislature

terday on a charge of felonious assault and
robbery, on the complaint of Max Bank,
who keeps a saloon at No. 175 Chrystie
According to the story told by Bank, he
and half a dozen customers were sitting in
the saloon about 10 o'clock on Wednesday

all present to throw up their hands, where
upon Goldberg went to' the cash register

TO STOP OTHER IKES
Mayor Orders Secretary ( o Go
Over List Carefully.
ONLY THIRTEEN IN FORCE
Seven of the Forty-seven Who
Felt Gaynor's Displeasure
Apply for Renewal.
On investigation it was learned yester
day that there were only thirteen more all
night licenses In force, after the re%-ocation
on Wednesday of forty-seven. Mayor Gay
nor instructed Robert Adamson, his secre
tary, to go through the list carefully and
revoke all that he does not consider
needed by nightworkers.
Seven of the persons whose licenses
were revoked on Wednesday applied for a
renewal yesterday. Some of them may be
successful, as they gave what seemed to
be good reasons. Because the new law has
changed the regular morning opening hour
from 5 to 6 o'clock the restaurants in the
market district, where men begin work
early, must take out all-night licenses In
order to accommodate their regular trade.
The list of places that still have their all
night licenses is as follows:
The Madrid, No. 1551 Broadway; L'Abbaye,
in "West 39th street; Jack's, at No. 759 6th
avenue; Jake Wolf's, in West 45th street;
Joe Adams's, in West 44th street; Maxim's,
In West 38th street: the Hotel Sterling, at
50th street and Seventh avenue; Faust's,
at Broadway and 59th street; Alexander
Hesse's, at No. 201 William street; the
Waubun Cafe (Andy Horn's), at No. 75
Park Row; Furthmann's. at No. 77 Park
Row; the Bridge Cafe, at No. ICG Park
Row, and Michael Dowling's, at Broadway
and 43d street.
George "W. Rector, proprietor of the Cafs
Madrid, said last night that he was running
a regular three meals a day restaurant, and
was not catering to the "fly by night" class.
For this reason, he says, the matter of th*
revocation of his license, which he has not
yet lost, wiU make little difference to him.
He says that the money he pays for tha
permit is practically money lost.
Frank M. Sperow, one of the proprietors
of L'Abbaye, said that he was running a
regular restaurant and hi 3 license has not
been touched so far. He said that he ad
mired the Mayor for taking the stand he
had against the "sporty" cafes and saloons
about the city. He said that most of his
t!ade came from actors and newspaper men,
who, working .at night, must have restau
rants open when they want them. He esti
mated that there were over two hundred
thousand night workers in New York.
Julius Kessler, manager of Maxim's, when
asked about the license question, said :
"Everything in the garden is lovely. That's
On the upper "West Side last night saloon
keepers affected by the Mayors wholesale

and said that they saw no reason why they
should be bothered. They seemed some
what cheered up, however, when news
reaped them that after an investigation
all night licenses would he given to those
whose regular patrons were night workers.
George McDermott, whose place i s at 42d
street and Sixth avenue, serves meals to
uptown newspaper men at all hours of the
night and has a good trade from persons
going to and coming from the Grand Central
Station. He said last night that he was
confident that any officiaj examination «»f
his place would show it to be all right.
William Yolk, who has a cafe at No. 661
Eighth avenue; John May, whose place is
at 44th street and Eighth avenue, and
others said last night that they had ex
clusive night workers' trade, and would suf
fer large financial loss by the cancelling of
the licenses. All of them expect to go
through the Investigation.
Former Police Captain James Churchill,
who opened a >iew cafe at 49th street and
Broadway, last night, said that he had not
yet applied for an all night license, but he
expects to get one. In the mean time ha
will work according to law and avoid trou
PERSCH WANTS LOWER BAIL
Long Delay in Habeas Corpus Decision
Reason for Plea.
John F. Mclntyre. counsel for Donald L.
Persch. who was indicted for the alleged
larceny of copper stock belonging to F. Au
gustus Heinze, valued at $50,000, asked
Justice Giegerieh yesterday to reduce
Persch's bail from $50,000 to $25.00(1.
Persch was tried in April in the Criminal
Branch of the Supreme Court After the
jury had deliberated twelve hours without
agreeing, the clerk of the court, acting un
der instructions from Justice Marcus, dis
charged the jury. A few days later counsel
for Persch applied for a writ of habeas
corpus, challenging the authority of the
clerk to discharge the jury. Justice Mc-
Call heard the argument, reserving decision,
which he has not yet rendered.
Mr. Mclntyre aremed yesterday that tho
long delay in the decision on the habeas
corpus writ has worked" a hardship on the
friends of Persch, who put up the $50,000
bond In which he was held. He 6 aid that
the bail was exorbitant. Justice Giegerich

Convalescing Heat Victim in Central
Park Likes the Treatment.
When "BH1" Snyder. head keeper of the
menagerie in Central Park, emerged from
the lion house yesterday with a large bag,
showed plainly that an animal was
in it, speculation was rife as to what It
could be. It developed later that It was
Hendrick Hudson, the convalescing lion
cub. which Snyder was removing to an
outdoor cage, where it could be Jn the ajr

Hendrick Hudson became ill during the
hot weather of Sunday and Monday. Tt
looked bad for Hendrick, end "Bill" had
misgivings about his recovery.
Under careful nursing, however, and with
the assistance of numerous milk punches.
Hendrick has been brought to a point
where he can again take notice.
"And you ought to see him smack his
lips after he has had his milk punch!" said
one of Snyder*s assistants.
HALF MOON TO CHANGE HANDS.
The reproduction of Hudson's vessel, the
Half Moon, which was built for the Hudson-
Fulton celebration last fall, will be formally

MOB YELLS FOR LYNCHING
Negro Caretakers Try to Drive
! Party from Estate — Two Have
Klngsbridge had a small sized race riot
late yesterday afternoon, and had it r
been for the timely arrival of the reserves
of the Kingsbridge police station there
might have been a lynching. As the result
of the trouble two white men-Jeremiah
: Downing, of No. 159 East 102 d street and
Patrick Sullivan, of No. 164 East l'Xd street
-are in the Fordham Hospital with fract-
I ured skulls, and three negroes are locked
j up charged with felonious assault.
Early yesterday morning Sullivan, his
wife, Barbara and Downing started on a
picnic. They boarded a trolley, and after a
I long rid* on various lines in The Bronx
reached Bailey averue and 227 th street,
where they decided to eat the luncheon
Mrs. Sullivan had provided. What is known
as the Reid estate, with its grassy lawns
and many shade trees, attracted the atten
tion of the party as a suitable spot for
their purpose. They chose a. pleasant nook
and began to eat.
The old mansion Is unoccupied, and tne
grounds are in charge of a caretaker. John
Mover, a negro: his wife, and an assistant,
Harry Rock, also a negro. Mrs. Moyer was
mowing the grass, whpn she heard the
voices of the revellers and ordered them to
get out. They refused to go. and, accord
ing to the story, one of the men begin to
abuse the negress.
The altercation attracted the attention or
"Sam" Jetter, another negTO, who was
driving by. He stopped and tried to per
suade the trespasse-rs to go away. It is
said that Downing told the negro it wouM 1
require the services of a -Jack" Johnson
to put them oft the grounds. Jetter then
went away, and, going to the mansion, told
Moyer that some white men were abusing
Moyer. armed with a rake, and Rock hur
ried to the scene of the trouble and started |
to drive the trespassers off th© grounds by
force. A fight ensued, in which it is al
leged Moyer used his rak« and his wife her
scythe with such effect that Sullivan and
Downing were felled to the ground. Mrs.
Sullivan in the mean time had made her
escape. As soon as she reached Bailey
avenue she yelled "Murder 1 ." at the top
of her voice, ajid her cries quickly brought
a band of about fifty white men and boys,
who set out for the Reid estate.
Moyer saw the mob coming and, rushing
into the house, barred the doors and win
dows. The mob immediately picked up
stones and other available weapons and
bombarded the house. Duors and windows
were smashed, and when Moyer showed his
head at an upper window he was greeted
with a cry of "Lynch 'em!" The cry was
taken up generally and, determined to
carry out the idea, several started off to
At this moment Patrolman Conlin ar
rived on the scene and, realizing that quick
action was necessary, ran to the nearest j
telephone and sent in a riot call. On his
way back to the Reid house- he was joined
by Patrolman Johnson. The two managed
to stand off the mob until the reserves
from the Kingsbridge station came.
After the grounds were cleared an ambu
lance call was sent to the Fordham Hos
pital, while the sergeant in charge of the
reserves ordered Moyer to come out of the
house- The caretaker, his wife and Rock
refused until they had the assurance of the
police that they would be protected. They
will be arraigned in the Morrlsanla court
Dr. Corey, who responded to the ambu
lance call, found both Sullivan and Down
ing unconscious and hurried them to the
hospital. There it was said that both had
fractured skulls and that Downing also had
three ribs broken. Their condition was
said to be critical.

CROKER REPORT READY
Waldo Has Papers, but Will Not
Make Them Public Until Monday.
Only one witness. Henry Hatfield. a re
porter, was examined yesterday before »•
special committee appointed by Fire Com.
missioner Waldo to investigate the TJ "*
in^ton street fire of June 6. He testified
that he was not present at the fire, and was
then asked if he had any conversations witn
Chief Croker or any other members of the
department after the fire. Hatfield said _
had spoken to Croker and other officers
about the fire, 'but would not give the sub
ject matter of the conversations.
"What did you come hero for. then,
demanded Deputy Chief Lally. who asked
many of the questions. ,
Hatfleld answered that Lolly should
know, as he had been subpoenaed. Ques
tions regarding certain criticisms of th" |
Fire Department published in the newspa- !
pers attributed :o Hatfleld followed. Chief j
Croker objected to these questions, but wl l
overruled by the other members of th*
committee. Hatfleld still declined M an
swer, even when it was suggested that an
'order from the Supreme Court might De
used to loosen his tongue.
After the session Commissioner "Waldo
left Fire Headquarters with voluminous :
reports from Chief Croker. Deputies Lally
and Langford and Battalion Chief Howe,
but these would not be made public, it was
said, until Monday. It is said that Chief
Croker's report contained merely a formal
statement, without recommendations- It la
said that the three other members of the
board, although hostile to Chief Croker, Jo
not recommend his dismissal or bring any |
charges, but that they hold the chief re
sponsible for alleged deficiencies in the firs
SHIPYARD AND YACHTS BURN.
Owing to th© lack of fire fighting fi
ties, the shipbuilding- plant on City Island
by Henry Kevins was totally *e
stroyed by fire early yesterday morning. ,
and two valuable yachts, the Aura, owm-d
by W. H. Simon, of New York, and tha
Chieftain, owned by J. L. Mitchell, of W
Rochelle, were burned to the warer'a ed?e.
A night watchman discovered the blaze
after it had consumed the greater part of
a long one-story wooden building In the j
yard. The alarm sent in by the watchman !
brought the only engine on the island to the I
fire. The apparatus could do nothing tow
ard stopping the progress of the flames, j
and by the time the Westcaester apparatus t
arrived, after a long wait, the building was j
gutted. Besides the yachts, several smaller j
craft were destroyed, and Mr. Nevins
places the damage to the plant at about
$10,000. The cause of the flre i? not known, j
CLEWS FAVORS EXPOSITION.
Speaking of a proper celebration of ■
three hundredth anniversary of the settle
ment of Manhattan Island by the Dutch.
Henry Clews said yesterday he thought an
International exposition In 1913, combining
a peace congress and pageant, would fur
nish an object lesson in the educational and
industrial development of our country
which would be most fitting under the cir
cumstances. Mr. Clews pointed out that
there are fifty million people living within
twenty-four hours' ride of New York, and
that asida from a purely business stand
point the educational improvement that
would come to the masses of the people
would be especially beneficial to New York
