tlon frauds In tho Twelfth ward ot this city
wort BO bungllngly planned and oarrlod out
that tho rorpotrators vrero discovered and ar
I rested before tho vote vras counted Tho Eloo
i tlon Board falsified tha returns doirasttod bal
lots In the names of dead men and rotors who
I had not lived In tho ward for years and In
other ways reversed tho will of tho pooplo
For years that ward lias been notorious for
election frauds and tho arrest ot tho tainted
Board has brought to light tho manner In whleh
exSheriff A B Stevens claims to havo been
cheated out ot tho Mayoralty and tho way in
which ho discovered exactly how the fraud was
perpetrated Tho facts have never before beon
made publlo through tho press
Slovens was strong In tho belief that ho had
received a majority ot tho votes In the whole
city and tho returns from tho Twelfth ward
I led him to suppose that his defeat had been
I concocted and consummated In that ward
alone He was unable to got tho proof ot his
suppositions and his opponent was declared
to havo received a majority in tho city Stevens I
submitted to the docitlon but a few months i
later to satisfy himself precisely as to how ho
had been cheated and without divulging his
secret to a Mnslo person ho hired a Imkorton
detective to unearth the supposed frauds in his I
own way Tho detective disguised himself as I
a common laborer wont tojlvo In a fourth
clnss boarding house in the Twelfth ward nnd
got work nt odd jobs near by For weeks ho
labored In this way become acquainted with
dome ot tho local politicians mado himself
popular among them and gradually learned
how politics wore manipulated down there Ilo
regularly reported progress to Mr Htovous In
the night time but for several weeks ho was
imabla to get anv clue to the supposed frauds
Tho detective diligently kept to work how
hOWd
over nnd at tho end ot seven months ho had
wormed thn eor t out of tho very men who
oheaudWr Stevens out of the elooUoD and
this It the story that ho told
On tho Saturday night previous to tho elec
tion tha Election Uoard met secretly in a
aloomr IUII n unfrBQuontod I P59 They had
an oxct duplicate of tb81 lral bill lot bex nnd
Into this box they placed as many ballots as
they wanted the district to cast Homo ol tho
ballots waro sailed so as to make It appear that
they bad boon in the pockets and passed i
through the finger of the voters who had coma
from their work to the polls with dirty hands
Into tho box wore thon placed a tally list that
ntalnad as many names as there wero ballots
tn thn box n list ol votem and the registry list
of tho district Uvorythiug was in perfect bar
ony with tho number of fraudulent ballots
and then tho box was kept In a secure bpot
until tho night of tho election
The honest ballots that tho voters cast woro I
dropped Into thn duplicate box by the ticket
taker but they didnt stay there long An ac
curate record was kcnt but that was unneces
sary for the tlckotf landed in the cellar I
through a tube which led from tho bottom of
the box through a hole in the floor under tho
table When tho polls woro closed In tho even
hIlt tho box with tho hole In tho bottom was I
destroyed together with the lints which tho
Board bad pretended to keep and the tickets
in the cellar Then tho bogus box hlch had i
been filled on Saturday night was spirited Into
the room according to the detectives state
ment and tho farce of counting tho votes was I
enacted to perfection the alleged count not
being completed until after midnight Tim
x > x was then sealed as carefully us it would
have been If It hod contained tho tickets which
tho voters haul cost and was taken to the I
Mayors office where the boxes from tho other
precincts had been deposited throe or four
hours bofore I
When tho votes wero counted by tho court
no ono Who assisted had any idea that tho
tickets from that particular district had never
passed through tho hands of tho voters Every
thing was tralght on tho faco of tho returns
and mr Stevens was defeated It cost him
several hundred dollars to get tho information
and although ho did not mako any attempt to
contest the election he felt that the expendi
ture had been judicious and ho believed that
the story told by the detective was true In
overy particular

rosy chocked and neat as iv 1 pin IN his snow
white aprons and scintillating diamond stud
was standing In Rtntucsatto roposo behind tho
polished mahogany bar ono day IflM I week
when three young bloods with bollcrownca
beavers ot mfttohlow sheen find silverheaded 1
canes of ultra fashionable Immensitywalked In
Throo Adonis cocktails ploaso exclaimed
tho loader ot tho procession leaning languidly
against tho mahogany rail
Throo which eald Hilly straightening out
with a look ot searehlnc Inquiry at tho faces of
his now customers
Adonis cocktails I sold replied tho first
dude knitting his eyebrows
Certainly sir briskly retorted Dilly an ho
reached for tho silver drink sllnger I didnt
catch tho first name I bog pardon
Ho slung Roma white of egg into a goblet from
glass bottle deftly dumped somo sugar on
top of that poured in nn Installment of lemon
Juice thqp u liberal flood of Old Tom gin and
topped tho mixture off with a doso of vermouth
and stomach bitters Then ho packed tho glass
full to tho bilm with cracked Ice clapped the
silver mixer over tho top tightly nnd shook it
with both hands for a couplo of minutes
A very lino bracer and appetizer that gen
tlemen lie said as ho poured tho cool mixture
Into throe cocktail glasses with nn easy awing
ol his hand Thoro was enough of tho drink to
just till tho glasses and DO more Tho dudotf
smacked their lips planked down fifteen cents
each and wafted themselves quietly out
What on earth Is 1 nn Adonis cocktail
asked a reporter who had watched tha Incident
Blessed If I know said Billy with an air of
perfect frankness bull wouldnt bo much ot
a bartender if I lot any customer blufl mo oft
with any newfangled name I gave them what
always havo known as a turf club cocktail
and It suited Tho first principle of good bar I
tending Is to know how to mako everything on
earth In tno drink lino no mutter whether you
havo over hoard of It boforo or not
lly tho way how do bartenders learn their
trade anyhow T tho reporter asked Isnt
there a school
oo No KOhool retorted Billy as ho polished
some frail wineglasses with u towel and n
touch of marvellous speed and delicacy No
Bchool but tho great school ot experience A
young fellow KltK ttclzad with tho ambition to

iiiKplred by his inborn soul to paint Genius
calls tho true bin tender to his urt and ho
jumps in behind thu llmt bar that presents iv

It takes about onu day to prove whether ho is I
a chump or lias tho material for a successful I
drink Hunger In him If ho is a chump bo is nil
thumbs nud breaks more glassware In a day
than can be paid for by the sales of a week
unless Impetuosity is eurbod time
It lies got tho right sort of material In him
ho watches tho accomplished head barkeeper
monkey around with tlio Iluldw with artlstlp
lIRe and tries to do tho Rumo thing himself
llguilng out in his mind just how much ol this
Pleasant llnuld Is I mixed with that much of
Homo other exhilarating lluidTlind combining

Thon ho can go forth Into tho world assured
that ho has the povvef to make countless tbou

Then that I Is all tboro Is to III Is It tho re
porter asked as Billys voito died away In a
bOlt cadence and ho stowed a fresh clove In his
mouth to flavor u very fine punch of hot Ja
uialra that ho had shared with thn scribe
Yes that all Billy replied slowly ex
cepting that thn genius of tho art after It Is I
learned will apply himself to inventing new
combinations for the comfort of the Inner mnn
For example ho added ns hu picked throe of
the flatbottomed glasses that rcBomble trun
cated crystal COUCH turned upside down
heros something entirely now that is a llttlo
thInK ot my own that Im a llttlo proud of Ill
mix one for you another for thu boss und a

Ho packed tho three glasses chock full of
crooked ice with a Rtlvi leo trowel and placed
them one on top of tho other on the bar in a
towprit pile that gllnbid picturesquely in tho
slight Tho weight of tho ico held them
IItolld while he introduced into n big goblet

Ho shook tbo goblet up < iultoa while with thn
bllvor mixer and then with his disengaged
hand took thu llttlo tower ot glass and ice on
the bur apart and tossed tho Ico Intatho cooler
under the bar Then ho drained equal pro
portions of the lltiuld mixture into the glasses
which hail been cooled by thu packed Ice anti
then projected Boltzor water Into each glass
from a fresh siphon bottlu A novvy foam rose
to tho rim ot ouch glass as the soltor was
driven into It Blllybiiluncod tho first glass on

Ever since tho olovnfed rond vtns built up

pooplo who own real estate abovo Central

with sorrow Tho trains all stop thoro as
regularly as at any other station along the

vicinity was concerned tho road might ns well
havo run up Tenth avenue as Eighth No such
weary flight of stairs is known olaewHoro on

which loads to this station located so high In I
air that tho train hands could look down to soo
tho roofs of sixstory tenement houses along

ment nouses thereabouts To build a houso la
that vicinity and ask any downtown business
man to occupy it would havo been much llko
ottering ofllcos to rent on thn top floors ot tho
tenstory office buildings with no elevators to
carry tenants up nnd down Of course no ono
built any houses thereabouts and tho Harlem
flats very picturesque when neon from tho
lofty station at night looking as they do when
lighted with long rows of street lamps llko a
black velvet carpet chocked with rows of yel
low diamonds remained to mako their owners

It was not In thn natnro of Now York real

hut a door will load from the rear to tho street
The liftt urn Gxfi feet largo on tho Inside or
will have 36 tmuaru feet ot flooring nuite
enough to comfortably accommodate twenty
men On a pinch twentylive could ride The
engine room Is In tho basement nnd tho
coal bins are under thu sidewalk Tho
Otis Brothers who build tho machinery
guarantee that each lilt will make a round
trip onco a minute thus eighty people could
bo carried up in that time Tho platform on
which the passengers land when carried up IB
thlrtynlno foot above tho sidewalk but the
tower is I the stories high From the landing
1IntforlII a neat bridge runs across under the
truss of the elevated road From tho end of
his bridge a flight ot twentylive steps In
cluding a landing part way up reach to the
platform of thu station It was impossible to
avoid all climbing of stairs because tho station
platform Is between tho tracks and the tracks
kunnot bo crossed at grndo The passengers
must cross the tracks clthor below or above
the truss and it was obviously bettor to cross
underneath With all these steps however
this will still bo tho easicbt station on tho line
