Flushing 1 Association Hears At

A meeting of the Flushing Association
was held last night Sit the League Building:.
in Flushing, to take action on the condition
of affairs In Queens. About three hundred
members were present, among whom were
lawyers, bankers, brokers, preachers and
representatives of all classes In the
Clarence M. Lowes, cashier of the Dime
Savings Bank of Brooklyn, presided, and
told the members that the hoard of di
rectors had been asked to take some de
cided action In the matter of President
Greaser, and that It had decided that it
would be better for the association to act
as a whole. . That war why. the meeting
was Called. .
John Clarke then proposed the following
resolution: "Resolved, That this associa

active interest in the executive administra

so many years I:hs been in many depart

Lawrence Embree immediately tried to
have action postponed until Governor

against Greaser to him, but the amendment
wa.s l<eafn out of hand. No one voted
against Mr. Clarke's resolution.

Writes on Abuse of His Office by
Judge's Personal Attendant.
Controller Tells How He Beached
— Foster Can See
No Irregularities.
.tnc b Nnvm.in, personal attendant of
Judge Warren M. Foster, of the Court of
CJeneral Session?, has been usin? tho court
chambers aa a private law oftlre, according
to information received by Controller Frcn
aerga^t. in writing to' Judge Foster re
gardlng it yesterday, th«) Controller said r.e
had made a careful Investigation of ths
conditions and had found the allegations
true. He calls attention to Section 62 of
the Code of CMI Procedure, which says
that "an attendant of a court shall no:,
during his continuance in office, practise a3
an attorney or counsellor In any court,"
and raises the point a« to whether under
the elrcumßtancefl Mr. Newman's salary c*n
be properly audited and paid.
•Tf, as It appear?," writes the Controller,
"there is an abuse of public office main
tained at the city expend, i presume you
Wish to rectify it. I can sec no difference
between a man in Manhattan who Uses
public property without right and the fore
men and watchmen In Queens Who neither
direct nor watch. Because of the hards] Ip
which would aeenifi to many innocent pe*
p"n^. I have derided to pass the payroll
for the present month, which Is now in my
bond?. I trust that before another payroll
is certified you will place me in possession
of !»uch information as will warrant tts
Controller Acts as Detective.
The Controller had a mythical case .-,:
collection 'of a lebt against James Hughes,
an employe of the Finance Department,
placed in tho hands Of Mr. Newman. The
latter wrote to lluches on stationery which
gave" bia address n* No. 320 Broadway
ami his telephone number a* "6001 Frank
lin." It happens that this is tho private
telephone maintained by the city ill the
chambers of Judge Fopter. Newman told
Hughes that unless he paid the alleged dob!
"it will bo my unpleasant duty to begin in
action against you for the recovery of tha
Reciting the allegations made against
Newman, the. Controller wrote to Jud^
Foster :
Newman has a comparatively large prac
tice and all of his clients call upon him at
the Criminal Courts Building, using the
Judges' private elevator, which is tho only
means of obtaining direct access to the of
fices occupied by Newman. The address
No. 320 Broadway, which appears upon Ilia
stationery, is not his actual or true address.
All material •which is delivered at that place
Is readdreesed to the offices in the Criminal
Courts Building . Callers at the No. o2<>
Broadway address are informed that Mr.
Newman "never comes here, but can bo
found at his offices, in Judge Foster's cham
bers. Criminal Courts Building."
Besides having the use of tho commodi
ous space in th« courthouse^ free of rent,
tho use of expensive furniture, telephone
and postage, free li^rht. heat and janitor
service, he has the privilege of using one of
the largest law libraries In the city, the use
of which la otherwise confined to the judges
of the Court of General Sessions. The mem
bora of the bar of this city Who appear in
cases before the court do not have this
privilege. The District Attorney himself Is
allowed access to the library only by a spe
cial courteHv and has established a law
library of his own. largely v duplicate of
this one. for his use as an officer of the
same court.
Newman has been peon in the civil courts,
where he conducts most of his practice,
with law books stamped "Court of General
Sessions." which he has carried there for
reference. I believe that it Is a rule of the
law library that no one except a judge of
the Court of General Sessions may take a,
book from the library.
Although be. is classed on the civil list
as a "court attendant," Mr. Newman has
printed on his business cards 'Secretary to
Judge Warren M. Poster, of the Court of
General Sessions.'' In the telephone direc
tory ho is given as having a telephone at
his home in Park avenue, and the further
entry appears: "Newman,* Jacob, Beery.,
Crim. Crt Bid.. G**>l Franklin." He is not
listed as bavins: any telephone at No. 3-"0
■Broadway. An inquiry at this building yes
terday brought forth the Information that
some trace of Mr. Newman might be found
in the office of lAHiis Abrame. In that of
fice it was said that he was not there
and rarely come. there, but could be found
In Judge Fosters chambers. i
"I am further informed," wrote the Con
troller, "that Mr. Newman performs none
of the ordinary duties of an attendant to
a judge, despite the certification appear
ing upon the monthly payroll of the Court
of General Sessions to the effect that 'he
Is regularly employed in the performance
of the appropriate duties of his position.' "
Judge Sees No Irregularity.
Judge Foster said last night that he
would make no formal reply to the Con
troller until he had received the letter. He
j>ni<i, however, that he. saw no reason why
Mr. Newman was not entitled to practise
law, so Ions; as he performed all the duties
required of him as an attendant to tho
"The Judges talked the question over
come time ago," he Bald, "and decided
that an attendant to a judge was not th*
Fame as a regular court attendant, and
that the law did not prohibit the attendant
of a Judge from practising law.
•"Mr. Newman Is •' splendid lawyer and
is Invaluable to me us an attendant and a
becrctary. I think that I and the. city are
to be congratulated on getting the services
of a man worth $5,000 or 510,090 for the
salary of an attendant to a judge.'
Judge Foster said he had told Mr. Now
man that he. wanted him in bis chambers
in the court, and thai if he performed bis
duties prpnprly there was no objection to
his attending to bi.s private work after
Some time ngo the Controller called Judge
Foster's attention to the fact that the city
was paying for a private telephone at his
home: The judge replied in a somewhat
tart letter. Tho Controller does not say so
in hia latest letter, but it la said be has
suspicions that Home of the extra calls
on the telephone in Judge Poster's cham

late Colonel Robert O. Dyrenforth loft

Furthermore, hie widow has filed suit to

' tract of land here, which appears to have,

family reasons to a brothcr-ln-law. In val

I encumbered to the extent of $22,000.
She snows of no other assets. Should

conditions contained in Colonel Dyren

early this month. Ho wad led to believe
that he would receivn about $300.0*0 if ho

year old now and a grammar school etu

that ho could get through Harvard by
the time he was eighteen years old. This

he Should also be taught dancing:. "How
can a hoy go to dancing school," the lad
asked, "without making friends with the
girls?" --A-; •
The will, whose provisions it. now seems
there are not means to carry out. provided
that after receiving lit. degree from Har
vard at the age of eighteen he was to
study law at Oxford for .«ix months..
Returning to the United States, tho boy
Was to enter and bo graduated from the
West Point Military Academy, and after :
the shortest possible proper service in the j
army resign and be thoroughly educated !
in tho law, which he was directed to fol
low a» his profession. Finally, It was spe
cifically provided that should the boy
become a Roman Catholic: before he was
twenty-eight, when he was to receive the
bulk of his foster father's fortune, every
dollar should go to tho Supremo Council I
of the Scottish Rite in this jurisdiction.
Colonel Dyrenforth especially imposed up
on tho executors "thoughtfully and well to
guard my beloved son from women, and {
sensibly— that is, Quietly, gradually and im- J
presElvely, though in no erratic extreme —
to let him he informed and know the in
direct, artful and parasitical nature of most
of the unfortunate sex and to care that
he may not marry beneath him."
' The boy was to hare the income from
the entire estate until he was twenty
eight, when the bequests to him became j
absolute. The income, however, was to go
to him on a graduated scale of allowances i
which were carefully worked out in the j
v, ill.
While readily agreeing to do all the things
his foster father directed, "Little Bobby"
may be content to lead a less strenuous ex
istence than that planned for him, e.~pe
eially as It now seems he will not be. re
quired to forfeit a large fortune should he
Customers of A. N. Lawrence Couldn't
Meet Margin Calls.
A. N. Lawrence, a commission broker on
the Consolidated Stock Kxchange, an
nounced his inability to meet his obliga
tions yesterday, and his euspenion on the
floor of the exchange followed.
The failure, while not regarded as im
portant, had a further depressing effect on
sentiment, and aided in the downward
movement of prices on the- "little board"
which -was already making itself felt when
the suspension was announced.
Mr. Lawrence requested all members
having contracts with him to close them in
the open . market; About L'.SOO shares of
various stocks were said to be involved.
No statement of his assets and liabilities
could be obtained at his office. No. 43 Ex
change Place, yesterday, and ono of his
representatives said that the amount- of
money Involved was not known.
• Mr. Lawrence ha? been a member of tlie
Consolidated Stuck Exchange since 1888, and
before that was a member of the New York
Stock Exchange. His failure, it was said,
was due entirely to the Inability of his cus
tomers to respond to margin calls in th.>
face of the decline in the market.
