Former Harlem Hotelkeeper
Declares That Police Vice
Trust May Kill Him

Asserts That Mayor and Waldo
Are Puppets in the Hands of
"Men Higher Up," and That
the District Attorney Has
Evidence in Hand.
[By Ti lrgraph to Thf Tribuno !
Philadelphia, Jan. 11.?George A.
Sipp declared to-night that lie be?
lieved Mavor Gaynor had given the or?
ders to Deputy Police Commissioner
Dougherty of New York to "get him."
"Who do you suppose gave Dough?
erty the orders that you were to be ar?
rested and brought back to New
York?" Sipp was ?*ked to-night in the !
hotel room where lie is endeavoring j
? to get rest nnd quiet before undergo?
ing an operation next week.
"M\ Idea is that Mayor Gaynor gave
Dougherty his orders," Sipp replied
without a moment's hesitation. "The
Mayor is a nice old man. Ho is as
honest aa the day is long and he would
not take one cent of graft money.
"But the System has him. The Sys?
tem' wanted to keep me out of New
York. It reckoned without the Mayor.
When the System brought that un?
speakable charge against me the Sys?
tem did it to keep me out of New York.
Theheail* of thnt System -if ten thou?
sand men were afraid 10 h.t\e me come
Gaynor Foiled System.
"Mayor Gaynor was not in with the
playing of the System, and when it
brought the terrible charge against me
?a oharge I don't think the Mayor
could thn.k of, it was so unspeakable?
the Mayor told Dougherty to get me.
Dougherty got me. and Dougherty and
the System will have to take the eon
Mquenct a. The System overstepped
Sipp in making the chaigo that
Mayor Gaynor was instrumental in
putting him in jail in Atlantic City did
not appear vindictive against the
? When ho first took office. ' said Sipp,
"I thought a great deal of Mayor Gay?
nor. He appeared to have a lot of
sense. Then he began to talk, and he
gol in the habit of writing letters"
Sipp made the assertion that wben
M*yoT Gaynor assumed office he en?
deavored to open up New York, per?
mit just enough vice to kerp Ihe city
from belnft absolutely vicious, as Sipp
expressed it.
"Mayor Gaynor endeavored to act
wisely by opening up the town a lit?
tle," said Sipp, '"and then he acted un?
wisely in making Waldo the Police
Commissioner. Waldo is a nice young
man, comes from a splendid family,
and that is what got the Major. He
think?? a good d<al of a nice family.
But v. hat Waldo does not know about

Painter's Daughter, 17 Years Old, Missing
Three Months, Sheltered by Man of 55,
Who Was Not Detained.
Masquerading as a boy and living a
lads lifr, Hazel Chens, a Brooklyn
girl, has been sheltered and cared for
since last October by a New York man
named Le Rose. He is more than
three times her age. and the police say
that tus attitude toward her was that
of a father toward his son.
'Why, she was just my little boy,
that's all. We read the Bible togothot
and I taught her to say her prayers,"
La Kose said to the detectives who
went last night to take the girl back to
her mother, in Brooklyn. Dressed in a
??orduroy suit, with a little cap tilting
over bor ear. she ? lung to l.e ROM, and
had to b6 almost torn away.
She was held on the c barge of dis?
orderly conduct, but La Hose was not
detained. His story, the police say,
tallied with hers, and was one of fresh?
ness and innocen? e. breathing no word
of wrongdoing.
The girl. Hazel Civens, is the seven
tecn-y? .tr-old daughter of a painter
and his wife, who live at No. 111'."? St.
Marks n\enuc For some reason she
decided to leave home last October,
and she told the pnliee that as she was
walking along 11th street about the
middle of that month she met Le Hose.
He had been a hoarder with the
(iivenses when they lived in Hooper
street. Williamsburg, and the girl knew
him well.
When she told him she had decided
to leave her parents he tried to dis?
suade her. but all in vain.
"Well, then, there wasn't anything
for me to do. 1 didn't want to see
Hazel loose on the street, with its dan?
gers. ! told her I would take ?arc of
her," lie said yesterday.
Le ROM and the girl left the city
soon afterward, and went to Montreal,
where she posed as his daughter. But
when the\ eanie baek to New York the
pair thought it best that she pose as a
boy. All her long, brown hair was
clipped off short, and she dressed in
fifteen-year-old boy's suit?. To every
body ehe was known as "Marion."
BOOM of the little boys she played with
said. "Oh. that's a girl's name," until
Marion" and it wasn't.
DetOCtlvea MeKirdy and Connor went
tO No If7 BMt 11 Stli street yesterday
and asked for La Hose. He came to
the door, but while he was standing
talking to th.ui. a mandata boy ran
down the "tairs and stood beeide him.
"You're Hasel!" said McKirdy.
The girl Insisted she was a ho\, hut
finally broke down. The detectives
took her away protesting. Her mother
had obtained the warrant for her from
Magistrate Herrin, in the Gatea avenue
court. Her address seemed to have
been known for some time, tor on Me?
tober Jfi she wrote her mother a post?
ean!, saying Le Rose was taking care
of her, and the address was on the card.

along with Miss Charlotte Brang?rde

Health, was ransacked of < lothea and
jewelry, valued at ?bout fOOOl Prtda;
afternoon, and Detective* Birmingham
and Coiling'', of tin Baal 1*-'<>th street
station, decided after looking over tbe
premises that it was an "inside Job."
It wasn't though, altogetbi r, for Hie
pigeon dropped down from the i oof.
Michael ^Healy, the elevator ojr,
Was the one who did on i he pigeon
and on himself. After a grillms be
confessed that the pigeon had been
trained by Peter Blayne, it* owner, to
light on nothing but a tire escapa,
Healey said be writ to the Nobel'l roof
with his brother Patrich and Slay'he
on Friday arnl Blayne dropped the hird.
It alighted on the tire escape OUtSlde
the i 'ronln w indow.
Slayne went down the ladder, osten?
sibly to get the bird, but really to see
if any one was in the flat, -it wa?
empty and the boya looted it.
The elevator boy said ?lajrna and I
his brother could tic found up on
Park avenue," and, sure enough, the
detectives found them at the corner of
137th street yesterday afternoon with
three suite ases containing plunder from
the flat. Everything was recovered
except a watch and pin. Tin Jicalys
Uve at No. 4.'5 Fast 181st atmet and
Slayne at No. -197 Fifth avenue. They
are all about sixteen yasjfl old. With
them was picked up William Kinde,

them." The police say, however, that
he is out on a suspended sentence for
malicious mischief. He lives at No.

Tons of Nutritious Edible
Stored in Adrianople.
[Il> Cable m Hi.- Tribune |
London, Jan. 11.?According to in?
formation recently received here, what
m ems ho far to have kept the Turkish
Hag flying in Adrianople is the quantity
of cheese the town possesses. ' Cheese
making is the principal Industry of the
place, and the export thereof takes
place only once a year. When war
was declared the export of the usual
year!) Quantity wab stopped, with the
result that even if everything else ran
short to-morrow the population could'
silll subsist on cheese. Thia Is said to
be the reason why Turkey did not.

auditors were bank presidents, railroad
presidents and heads of great business
Governor Wilson declared that sue
seas of enterprise depended on th?
opening up to the rank and file of the
nation, not only its physical resources,
but the business credit as well.
Men had testified under oath, he said,,
to the existence of an "Inner circle,'*'
by which credit was obtainable to the
exclusion of those against whom thaV
inner circle sought to discriminate.

sponsibility that will fall upon me ?
would be daunted, I came here to ask.
your counsel and assistance.
The business future of this country!
does not depend on the government ofj
the United States; It Is dependent on/
the business men. The governmentJ
cannot breed a temper; it cannot gen-i
erate thought and purpose. Thing?
done under the whip of the law aret
done sullenly, somewhat reluctantly|
and never successfully.
"The hope of America is the change,
ing attitude of the business men tow-.,
aid the things they have to handle lr?
| this country.
"I want to take sternness ?out of thin

'And then, in addition to all this, we
must see to it that the business of the
1'nited States is set absolutely free of,
every feature of monopoly."
Here Governor Wilson paused, looked]
about the banquet room, and then)
"I notice you don't applaud that. %
