Had Looked Over tbe Store. The usual well dressed crowd was in the avenue about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon when Ax-ting Deputy Surveyor Norwood and* the other officers entered the store at No. 802 Fifth avenue, and immediately made their way to the rear of the premises. An agent of the De partment of Justice had been sent by United States Attorney Wise earlier in the day to acquaint himself with the Ftore and note the office where the books were kept, and thus the raWers knew Just where to go to find what they wanted. The arrival nt the seven officers caused consternation in the place. Only yester day morning two boxes of jewels, said to be worth $100,000. were put in the front window, and attracted ndmh-ing groups throughout the day. The em ployes had been speculating among themselves upon what would happen should some one throw a stone through the window, or should crooks raid the place to carry off the treasures In the window. When th« seven men entered th- store in a body and started for the office at the rear, the clerks scampered, for they thought their dream "had coma true. Henjamin Duveen proved himself the coolrst of the let. ami in a striking Eng lish accent he called on the staff to calm down, and not be excited. He expressed his willingness to go along quietly, ad ding that he did not know what It was all about, but so Ions; as the men who called on him were officers of the law he vas ready to comply with their wishes. It was jurt 5 o'clock when Marshal Henkel marched Into the office of Com missioner Shields and announced "This gentleman is under arrest." and handed over the complaint and warrant. "You are Mr Duveen— Benjamin Du v*enr - asked th« Commissioner. "Tea; why. yea,*" replied the prisoner. "You are charged in this dr>cument" — btgan th*> Commissioner; when Duveen broke In with. -Oh. yes; I know, that is all right." Duveen Professes Ignorance. After a cnupl* more, interruptions the Commissioner read the charge, and Du v*-en remarked. "I don't know anything uhout !t." "Have you counsel?" was the next question. "Why. no; not her* — not yet." replied th*» prisoner. In a voice which he strove manfully to keep from betraying excite ment. When the «~ i ommissioner informed him a* tr» hi.« rights to examination and bail, Mr Duveen «a« very grateful. "Very murh obliced ••. you. indeed. Thanks ■fully." he said. Ry this time William T. Wemple. As sistant Untied States Attorney, who had made the complaint in the case, came in and *»»■' that the government would 'In sist o n bail r.f Jino.nnn. "Ball? Why. certainly. I will ret bail." mM Dnveen. Hut it is late to get it t o- right." He said his lawyer was Walter Stem, Jcf CorbKt a Stern. Xo. 60 Wall street, and he expressed his willingness to tap. j ply ball, but did n<>t appear to realize I that he must remain in custody unless : h* puprll**d a bond last night. United States Attorney Wise came in i with Assistant Solicitor Barnes, of the M'ustoms Department, and Mr. Wii»p said ■that the Koyprnmcnt asked for JlOft.ooo bail because th^re had bosa a systematic ! p*r!*s of frauds covering' ■ period of | many years, and that the total of which ; the government had been deprived would amount to more than SI.OOO.Onn. | After consulting with Mr. Wise, how jever. Commissioner Shields announced : that for the present he would accept bail I for fMVf>«f'. and this could be raised or jlrwered to-day or later, as might be de j frminfd vr n ri application. Duveen was still under the impression ; th*t he could go as soon as the formali ! ties were over and I)** had been told J that I « must appear for examination on | Monday. *>ctober 17. 1 "I ass BBM lam very much obliged to j i..ii gentlemen." he said, bowing to th» i Commissioner and the government's i lawyers, n^ Marshal Henkel said: I "Conne along with me, now." I 1 Didn't Realize Situation, j As the marshal was leaving th«» Com \ mi^sioner's office a newspaper man j ; «V.d Mr. Henkel. "Does this gentle 1 man understand that ho will b« locked I up ti«-nipht unless be secures bail?"

Mr. Wise explained to him as gently as possible that the law was in exorable and no respecter of persons. He then called up his attorney. Walter Stem, who said he would get bail right away if the Commissioner and th" United States Attorney would wait until this could be arranged. Mr Ht-rn camp to the Federal Build ithin a few minutes and ball was arranged and the bonds signed so that his client could be released at 6:30 p. m. Mr. Stern, when he saw the complaint and learned that Henry J. Duveon would be arrested on the arrival of the Lusi tania. asked whether arrangements could be made to pive bail last night. Commissioner Shields agreed to come over from his home in Brooklyn so that the founder of the great art firm should not have to spend the night in custody. The complaint in the case was made by William L. Wemplo. Assistant United States Attorney. He sets forth, upon in formation and belief, that "on February 10, 1908, the members aMba firm named knowingly and fraudulently conspired with each other and with other persons unknown to deponent to defraud the United States government of customs duties lawfully accrued and due and to become due upon merchandise to be im j>orted into the United States by the aforesaid conspirators by means of false and fraudulent invoices, entri. s and other practices and devices relating 'to said merchandise, and it was part of said conspiracy that the said invoices, affidavits and statements should among other particulars falsely and fraudulent ly state the description and foreign cost price of the merchandise purporting to he covered hy puch invoices, entries, af fidavits, statements and entries. Specific Act Alleged. "In pursuance of said conspiracy the faid defendants did on February 10. I!**S. in the Southern District of Xew York, falsely and fraudulently enter mer chandise, to wit, three vases, through the Collector of Customs, by means of a false and fraudulent consular invoice and entry paper and by means of a false statement and affidavit, with the intent that the same should be used In the liquidation of duties on said merchan dise, by means of which the United States might be and was deprived and defrauded of a portion of the lawful duty, etc. "The source of information of the de ponent consists of Custom House records and private Invoices and statements made to deponent by a person whose name cannot be disclosed, because such disclosure at this time would defeat the ends of justice, but who can be produced upon th* hearing." After the arraignment of Benjamin Duveen Mr. "Wise said: "Evidence was submitted to me yesterday by Collector T.oob that satisfied me that Duveen Brothers have been undervaluing goods for entry for years past. I was satisfied that gross frauds had been practised upon the Treasury for years and author ized Mr. "Wemple- to apply for warrants of arrest and search warrants, which were duly issued by Commissioner Shield? and served to-day. Under the law Collector T^oeh specially designated Acting: Deputy Surveyor Norwood to execute the search warrant, and I am Informed that his cursory examination of the books of the firm has already per mitted him to place a Judicial seizure on many valuable objects of art in the establishment of the defendants. "The goods recognized In the store as having been brought in at great under valuations are only the beginning of the case, so far as our information goes, as we expect to show that the total amount so undervalued will run into many mill ions of dollars, and the duties of which the government was* deprived will amount t.i over $1,000,000." •'. The system under which it la alleged the frauds were perpetrated was the same as that shown to have existed in the Ifualca case tried last November in the United States Circuit Court. The shippers, who in this case were members of the same firm as the consignees, would present at the office of the United States Consul an invoice of the goods to be shipped to New York. This invoice must be signed In triplicate by the con sul. One copy goes to the consignee, one to the customs authorities at the port of entry and the third remains on record in the consulate. Under this system the invoice containing the real value of the goods is sent to the consignee, but when the customs entry is made the falsified consular invoice Is used, and thus duty is paid on only a portion of the value of the goods imported. Knows Nothing of Vases. While waiting at Marshal Henkel'B of fice for bail, Benjamin Duveen said he knew nothing whatever about the entry of the three vases referred, to in the com plaint. "Oh, yea. I am a member of the firm," he said. "The other members are mjr three brothers and my uncle Henry, who arrives to-night or to-morrow on the L»usitania. "Oh, yes, our firm dors a very large business in this country. We brought over the Franz Hals, which brought the highest price ever paid for a painting in this country. We brought it over our- Belves and Bold it to Mr. Kahn. We also bought many of the best pictures offered at the sale of the Yerkes collec tion. I really do not remember what pictures we bought there, but I know we did got some Corots and some other masters. Our customers and clients in clude some of the richest people in this country, but you must really excuse me, you know, under the circumstances. I really could not give any names, you know. I want to answer any ques tions you gentlemen put to me, you know, but really I cannot say anything about the business of our clients. "Oh, no, I was not a bit excited when the officers came in, though I dfd not know what it was all about, really. I don't know yet anything about the whole affair, no I cannot mako any BtHtement, you see. "I have been here In New York about nine years, but our firm has been here for thirty years, I should say. My father and my uncle Henry established the firm in London about thirty-two years ngo. My father— his name was Joseph Jr.ol — died abroad two years ago. My brothers come over her* sometimes; hut the cummer is a dull season, an we all go over to the other side for the Lon don season, you know, and I came back here and my unlel« Is coming on the Lusitania. My brothers aro in London and in Paris, where w»- <>r>#-ri"<l up Just a few years ago — four or live, I should Bay." One of Mr. Dwvoen's counsel said last night that no statement would be given cut then. "A statement may be Issued to-day." he added, "which will put the firm right in the eye* of the public." YELLOW FEVER AT VENEZUELA. Washington, Oct. 13.— Yellow fever has broken out at Puerto Cabttllo.

DUVETS ARREST With Party of Friends on Ship When He Was Taken. Henry J. Duveen was arrested last night in the lounge of the Cunanl liner T/.sl tanls while making merry with a party of about twelve persons at one of the big round tables. A steward in white duck led the way to the art importer, and after taking <a good look at him said to In taktng a pood look at mm .. TM . spector Maxwell, who followed him. This Is Mr. Duveen." . The inspector said he wanted to talk with him aside, but Mr. Duveen wanted to know why. There was a subdued conver sation, and Mr. Duveen Jumped suddenly to his feet. He wanted the inspector to go with him to another table, but the in spector then told him that two Secret Ser vice men from the Department of Justice wanted to see him In his stateroom. Mr Duveen became excited and started confusedly aft and then forward. "I guess we can go below from the after stairway," said Maxwell, as he led the way. Waiting in the stateroom were George C. Craft and Joseph A. Baker, the special agents, who lost CO time in makinj? the arrest. Deputy Surveyor Norwood then en tered and there was animated conversation for fully ten minutes. Mr. Duveen said something, and a voice within said. "Well, you don't want a scene on the pier, do you?" Mr. Duveen then sent for his valet and instructed him to look out for his baggage. Norwood and the Secret Service men then led the way to the deck, where Mrs. Du veen was talking with friends. Bha wan told that her husband would have to leave the steaaMtdp on the reve nue cutter, as h*» was under arrest. Not grasping the sf»rir»'isnes.<= of the situation, she laughed and "What i? this*, some practical joke?" A crowd of women friends gathered around her and her husband was whisked below to the main deck, where he was taken aboard the cutter. Mr. Duveen said his arrest was an outrage and asked the Secret Service men why they had gone to so much trouble. "Let me go up to the pier in the regular way and I'll be glad to receive you gentlemen to-morrow at the St. Regis," he said. The revenue cutter arrived at the Battery at 11 p. m.. long before the LuMtania got up to her pier. Mr. Duveen was taken in a Broadway car to the Federal Building, where lie was arraigned before Commis sioner Shields. An agent of the National Surety Com pany was present to sign his bail bond. Some delay ensued, until Abel I. Smith. AFSistant United States Attorney, arrived. He demanded $100,000. and when W. H. Cor hitt, of counsel for Mr. Duveen. argued that that was altogether too much in the case of a man who was not trying to get away but just coming into the country, Mr. Smith paid that in view of the number of charges against the prisoner and the fact that the understanding between Mr. Wise and Mr. Stern had been that SlOO.nno ball be fur nished lie could not consent to any less. Commissioner Shields finally split the dif ference and decided to accept $76,000 ball. Mr. Corbltt said this was an extraordinary sum in any case, but consented t*» make the bond for this amount, with the privi lege of applying for a reduction. It was 11:45 p. m. before the bond was finally Command in Your Own Home a Brilliant Orchestra's Performance How often have you been transported from dreariness to delight — from pessimism to optimism —by the performance of some splendid orchestra.

PLACE OF DUVEEN BROTHERS Firm Has Executed Commissions of Many Famous Collectors. The members of the- art firm of Duve»n Brothers are all of English birth, though the New York branch was founded a gen eration ago. The original house was estab lished in London thirty-two year.i ago by Joseph Joel Duveen. who died abroad two years ago, and his brother, Henry J. Du veen, still an active member of the firm. who was arrested last night. Two years after the opening of the London house Duveen Brothers came to New York. They opened a Paris branch four or five- years ago. Besides Henry J. Duveen. the other mem bers of the firm are Joseph J . Joseph A.. Lewis J. and Benjamin Duveen, all nephews of Henry J. and sons of Joseph Joel Duveen. Duveen Brothers must not be confused with J. M. Duveen. art dealer of London, who is a distant cousin of the others. Many of the chief art purchases for Americans in the last thirty years have been made by Duveen Brothers. J. P- Mor gan has been one of their chief, patrons. Notable among their purchases for him were his collection of old silver and Chinese porcelains. Mrs. Collis P. Huntington has been another big customer. One of the Duveens" conspicuous pur chases In the last two years was Van ]©e£t $c Co.

Another btg purchase was that of the, painting by Franz Hals of himself, his win» and two children- The picture was bought of Col cnel Ward*, and the, price paid was $*».«'*. It was later sold to Otto H. Kahn. Perhaps the Duveens" most famous pur chases were the. kann collections. In 19»JT they purchased the pictures gathered by Rudolph Kann in a period of nearly tnirty years. This was regarded as th» most Im portant and carefully selected private col lection in France. Kleven RembranCts were its chief feature. The price paid was fo.CCOfiro. Second only to this was th* col lection of the late Maurice Kann, brother of Rudolph, bought last year by the Du vA«ns for JE.firtVOi'iO. The Duveens paid »».«io for Turner's "Rockets and Blue Lights,"' at tne Tames sale. Last year, when Henry Duveen returned from Europe he was enthusiastic over the new tariff regulations admitting works or art free-. He declared that In a few years Europe would be emptied of all her works of art. BROKER WANTS $1,600 Says He Induced Cortelyou and Glynn to Make Bank Depository. (By Telegraph to Th* Trtbon*.
