95 per cent of all the counterfeiting that is
done In ont country today t 1 done by Italians
They have monopolized the business as they

which I regularly rely for a revenue upn
frequently very difficult to convict them They
retreat behind either a real or on affected igno
rance of Dgliah and Iw a by all the saints
that they did know the coin they passed or
attempted pass was counterfeit that they
hud no sliver coin in their own country and
were unused to it and had been Imposed upon

This development of counterfeiting among

A very short tlmo an attempt was mado on his

hucli things ar of constant occurrence but
are kept deep In the dark
The appalling character of some of these
Plcllian aPJalpl Is almost beyond belief I
amost byond b
have one In my mind now the marvel of who o
crimes Is enouflte to freeze a mans blood In
New Orleans he burned a house And was sent
to the penitentiary for arson While in tbo
prison pnltentlr conspiracy to b out
and then secured his own freedom by betray
ing his fellow conspirators He murdered a
fl ht collraot
felow le rord
man In 8t Louis and got away I Chicago he
conceived an enmity toward one of his fellow
countrymen and Invited him to tho saloon he
was then koplng When in tho saloon he
asked the man who suspected nothing to step
upon a chair and band him down a bottle
When the man got upon the chair he drove I
knife Into his back upn left It sticking there
and fled a the man fell dying to the floor lie
camo t this city and engaged In deal
ing in counterfeit money lie Initiated a
follow countryman into the business and
the pupil did so much bettor than his mastfl
that npl latter determined upon reyence I
was a comprehensive plot ho fore ryenJo ar
ranged to sot fire t his house have his pupil
Mot to tho penitentiary for perjury recover
2600 from an insurance company murder his
wife and go back to Italy and settle down a a
country gentleman of leisure sHo lot lire to
his store and then came upon the Insurance
company for tho insurance on bin stock and
brought forward the man he meant toland In
the penltenMary as a witness to swear that be
was in the store at a tlmo when It could easily
be shown he was not But insurance com
pany did not pay the money and so be changed
bin plan and Instead of sending his friend to
the penitentiary I determined to maim him
Ho invited him to his house and ontho plea
that it was warm induced him to take off his
coat and waistcoat This was to see if he was
armed Then be bonded him a gloss of beer
and as the other was drinking it ho suddenly
lunged akeenbloded shoemakers knife Into
his forehead and with a slash drew it clear to
the chin laying open the entire face The
victim told who did this and the man was ar
rested Mine weeks afterward wben tho vic
tim got out of the hospital he said that his
first accusation was false and that be did not
know who cut him Both these men sire now
in penitentiary for passing counterfeit
money but I they will soon be out It is only a
question then which will kill the other i
Now I have no more prejudice against
Italians such than 1 have against any for
eigners But I speak from an Intimate knowl
edge of the subject when I say that the Importation
variation of these Italian criminals Is a seri
ous matter and demands serious attention
They are a danger and a curse to the corn
munftT just 811 any gang of robbers and fIB811
sins wouid be They 1I0t only 110 criminal I acts
themselves but especially In Ibis counterfoil
Inll business they spread crime among those
about them It Is a great game with them to
get hold of young German boys or Irish boys
or even girls and get them to shoving off tho
counterfeit coins they are producing Inces
santly It Is n subject which the cress should
take up and which the people should fully un
derstand I am not speaking against ItaUllos
as A nation I am speaking against the Crim
inals of Italy for it Is from the criminal classes
the brigands cutthroats tblees and promls
annuli villains of oil Krnflft that too much of
our Italian immigration is drawn It should be I

vases of solid silver some to toko the place of

of Incenses The rooms wore richly papored and
carpeted while from the walls and ceilings
hung lanterns and other Oriental ornaments
The dedication as originally intended was
to be purely Oriental In ull its details but nl I
most at the very last moment some Christian

lust as much to say In Its dedication their
heathen brethren Led by Mr Hhow Shin a

Trouble Aria > In m East New Tortt Church
Over Usitter MO
At tb P close of yesterdays morning ser
vice in the First Baptist Church of East New
York t he Rev Jacob Whltehurst the pas
tor requested the members of the congrega
tion to remain In their seats Clerk Dayton
road a letter addressed by tho pastor to tho
ofllceta of tho church The letter was to the
effect that Inasmuch as some of the officers
and ombora of the church ware unwilling to
guide the affairs of the church In accordance
with the principles of tho word of Ood and had
not oa ly withheld their sympathy and good
will rom him but In some cases had with
draw their subscriptions thus producing dis
cord and schism he therefore tendered his
realm latlon It was moved that the matter be
laid upon the table until Friday nlgbt John
Andaman tlipufeht the Issue did not warrant
suchllstronit words as Mr Whltohurst had
usod Be expressed a strong confidence In the
pastois views and Integrity Ho was Inter
rupted by a loud call for the Quostlon Several
other udhorenta of the pastor tapoko briefly
Some thought the trouble could be adjusted
while cithers thoucht It better In view of the
elements of discord In the church to accept
the resignation The motion to lay over was
Caused and the meeting adjourned abruptly
The church baa been accustomed contrib
ute tSO1 yearly the support of Long Island
missions This was raised formerly by a com
mittee of ladles A year ago the ladles com
mittee dissolved after having rained only 1111
This teas Increased by subscription to 129 It
was then proposed to take tho rest of the 150
to be raised from the church funds The prop
sltlpn was vigorously opposed on the ground
tbanho churclclebts wore not yt paid and
the winter fuel Wet bouabi The money bow
over was paid and considerable bitter foolIng
was a roused The pastor took no part In the
discussion except to declare against the money
being raised by fatra Borne months later In a
sermon he mentioned the payment of this
moneyaa an example of generosity before jus
tice This gave rise to an attack upon him In
a business meeting by the faction which voted
to make tho payment It virtually placed
him upon ono aide of the question al
though made every effort to remain neutral
The dlcord flamed up a few weeks ago when
the time for this years payment of the 110
subscription came around besides tbe years
runnlric expenses and 1180 interest money an
indebtodnessof 1801 remained from last year
Nevertheless the faction which bad prevailed
theye before Insisted this fall on paying the
50 from the church funds The church funds
were tso and from this the contribution was

WAnnntaroif pet 234 mixture of good
and ill fortune has attended the varied and In
terettlng practice carried on during tho last
fortnight at Coasters Itatbor Island by the
Jo nt forces of tho North Atlantic squadron and
tho Naval W College The squadron is now
relied qn as a regular summer attraction at the
fashionable resorts Newport and Bar Har
bor and perhaps alto to a somewhat less ox
tont at Halifax and other Dominion ports to
which It betakes Itself during tho hottest pf the
hot weather under pulse ot visiting tho fish
eries Last summers effort Admiral Loon
to comfort and protect the American toilers of
theses in that region Was to little satisfactory
to Boorotsry Whitney that this part of the
rears work of tho squadron may not bo re
newed next year lint Mount Desert nnd Now
port will always welcome wlthlts picturesque
demonstrations of landing the naval brigade
and other performances and Btoretdry Whit
ney has pa Id a courplimeq tP the oommlbdloc
nicer for skill In bandJlna tee squadrop
But the late performances at coasters liar
bor Island hove by no means enlntended
forthedlreirlonof the resident They have
hvul the special and commendable purpose of
giving n practical cast to the Instruction at
the new naval college at that place whose
curriculum has naturally been at the start
somewhat uncertain consisting for die most
partoflectqros 2neexporimantsoftho pres
ept month In tIIUIIraUOIf the leotums byslm
ultanoul practical loperatlons of vessels and
their crews assembled for the purpose must
do much to give the new Institution a status
as a school of application It will also fur
nish one of the best practical arguments for
retaining tbo college at Itspresent site Instead
of removing it to Annapolis as some have
wished to do thus making it an adjunct and
postgraduate course of tho Naval Academy
The manoeuvres this season u thus far con
ducted have Included anattack by torpedo
boats the defence of a crulnbr the Atlanta
against such ottackst the landing of the naval
brigade and an assault by It upon Held forti
fications practice with the Outline guns
illustrations of tho tactics of rnmmlng strip
ping ship for battle practice with small arms
and in the landing of heavy guns This lat
exercise was the only ono which properly
caused chagrin by Its failure The dumping
of n nineInch Dab IZ1On to the bottom in the
effort to transport It and its cArriagO to Itoso
Island as the chief feature ot n heavy pun
battery to be established there was certainly
a bungling performance But the accident was
no doubt due to the intentional limiting
lot facilities for tritneportlng the gun to
auch as could nlwnyn be furnished on
board a war vessel It was hard luck that
after tho gun had been safely hoisted ovor the
Bldo of the Admirals fUgqhln and upon the
platform which rested upon the two launches
I intended to carry It ashore the spars of which
the platform was built should have given way
causing one boat to fill capsizing the other
and nndln the gun to the bottom iIIut per
hape even this mortifying Incident may bare
UR good fruits In teaching the omctrs to pro
vide It moro stable structure for soon landIngs
in actual warfare With this exception tbe
operations general may fairly be considered
successful so far concerns tho purpose for
which thel ere underlllken
Yet tho chief thing taught by the exercises
ban been the lack of proper naval appliances
and the defects in those that already exist
Ono officer found that some of the new steam
launches are remarkablywantlng in towing
power Asecond reported that till ammuni
tion of the Catlings could i not be properly fed
into the guns either because the cartridges
wero too short or from some other cause so
that the guns were jammed A third reported
that three of his men Were Injured by de
fects In blank cartridges which rendered the
rifles BO useless that the tire of bis force had
to be suspended before the ammunition was
exhausted while the armorer of the Baratoga
reported that every rifle returned to him had
been disabled Besides these unpardonable
defects the 8hortlOmlllA of the navy In torpedo
warfare were Illustrated > jby the fact that an
unarmored cruiser was able under the rules of
the sham battle to defeat and throw out nf
combat the entire flotilla of attacking boats It
is no wonder that this result occurred since
there was not a single torpedo boat among
their number nor a singlebontof high speed
While even had they bHiJ ibhytdjtet within
range for effective work they would havo bad
nothing to work with but the oldfashioned
apparatus of a torpedo stnfC on tho end
Broaratus But after all otG n thevictor In this
aueer contest developed onlyrlesa important
shortcomings since as has been pointed out
he had no wire netting such as provided In
foreign navies for defence against selfmoving
torpedoes ln < the generally Creditable shore
operations of the naval brlwdeswmo of the

tolhem and there was a lock rf rtual bullets
from the Intrencbments sueli 0 Ak wnllld no
doubt havo taught thorn tntsWrtdvantage of
cover and of Inequalities of the ground In ad

The tactical and gunnery exercises on thi
whole have been very useful They have re
veille the needs of tho navy and hove given
practice and instruction of1 atlnd that should
bear fruits The Dolphin appears about to

A dramatic Incident occurred on Fifth are
nua yesterday It was shortly after 1 oclock
and the sidewalks the great thoroughfare
were crowded with people The huge throngs
drifted alongon both sldesof the street dressed
In Sunday raiment and staring Interestedly
from side to side It Is tho most pretentious
procession that Now York knows
By some curious freak of fate two young
men ot similar age and local tome swung into
Fifth avenue nt precisely thin same moment
and walked slowly toward each other One
turned the corner of Twentysixth street and
started northward and the other turned the
corner ot Twentyseventh street and faood
the south Heads wore turned In all direc
tions and the names ot the two young men
wore whispered along the street Each was
slim ot build handsome of face and noticeably
correct in the matter of attire Mr Berry Wall
wore a dark heavilyribbed black frock coat
pray trousers a beaver hat with a twoInch
band lavender gloves white ovorgalton every
high and straight collar a dark scarf and the
biggest white rose that has bean soon on Fifth
avenue this season lie strolled along seem
ingly nndonsclous of the attention ho excited
leaning heavily on his stick and starlngstralaht
In front ot him with raised eyebrows and
an expression of acute sorrow Mr Bob 1111
llards costume was an nbttolute duplicate of
Mr Walls even to the shade of the trousers
the white ovorgMtors and the massive rose
Even the material of lbs Milliard frock coat
was precisely similar to that of the Wall frock
coat The crowd parted right and left aa the
exking of the dudes and the reigning monarch
strolled unconsciously toward ono another
Hllllards proportions wore athletic and power
ful Walls wore dissipated and elegant One
looked like a man of fashion the other like n
roan at the world Billiard WM by far the
handsomer but Wall hors that Indescribably
attractive stamp which dIstinguish the man
of fashion < above his fellows There won a
swirl In the crowd which left an open space
directly In front of tile Victoria Uolel Sud
denly the two Idols ot the town caught sight of
each other It was n thrilling moment for It
was the first meeting ot the deposed and the
successful monarch It was a test which both
men felt from their heels up but whleh they
survived with a serenity anti breading which
ha won them their title Mr Walls face grew
a shade whiter tint the expression did not
cliunco an iota Milliard flushed but retained
his expression of implacable serenity Neither
man changed his pace and they strolled along
within a foot or two of each other and then
Mr Milliard smiled very slightly nodded and
said casually
1 t Good mawnlng
Howdo said llr Wall serenely with just
the suggestion of a smile and a gentle beam
Mr HUliard touched two fingers his gloved
hand to the rim of his hat Mr Wall touched
his hat with bis right forefinger only This is
another innovation ot Mr Hllllards he hold
ing with some show of argument that as pot
tots policemen and sailors touch their hat
with one finger gentlemen should make a
slight but not pointed difference by raising
two fingers He of course deprecates the
fashion of one man raising his bat on meeting
another unless a lady be present such action
being fulsome ostentatious and vulgar
As the two distinguished men walked apart
after their meeting it was evident that they
were perturbed Neither of them looked back
of cotrrgft but there was a nervous accelaratlon
of speed na they swept out ofMlght around the
corner There was no question that both men
had been tremendously shocked by the discov
ery that they were dressed In a fashion that
was precisely similar V Though they knew the
rumor that flew up and down Fifth avenue to
the effect that they patronized the same tailor
was false yet they were nervous and 111 at ease
over the lack or originality they had both
shown No one knew exactly where Mr Wall
went but it is certain that ho showed up in
an Incredibly short time In attire that was
notably and pointedly out of the ordinary
run It was not the material so much
as It was tho cut A Parisian tailor
was responsible for the oddity In out
line of the garments The coat was very
long tailed four button and cutaway the
trousers roomy and Ironed so that the creases
stuck out like whip cords The waistcoat was
exceedingly low at the neck giving a view of
the heavily ribbed shirt and a ribbed cravat ot
precisely the same material The points ot the
collar were turned very far forward The boots
were patent leather with elaborately trimmed
uppers and the gloves very lIght in shade as
Indeedwas the suit the color > of wiich by the
Waywas svety dark bztiwa with subdued
stripes of maroon
VMr Billiard was seento jnmplntoa
when he arrhedjit Broadway after his abrupt
departure from Fifth avenue and rolled hastily
up town Loss than half an hour later ho
bounded out on Fifth avenue again and started
briskly toward the Park An extraordinary
metamorphosis had taken place Shorn of his
beaver hat and the dignity which a frock coat
Imparts he looked like a ruddyfaced boy He
was topped by a lowcrowned fawncolored
Derby bat which was matched to perfection by
fawncolored gloves He wore white linen re
lIeved at the neck by a scarlet tie while a pur
pie satin waistcoat embroidpred with green
stars could be seenthrough the opening of tho
negligi suck coat The trousers wore rough
tweed and the raltern of the same material
A cambric handkerchief with scarlet tracing
to match the cravat peeped from the pocket
of Mr Hllllards coat and he carried a silver
tipped stick For halt an hour he strolled In
Fifth avenue and so dldBerry Wall But fate
had turned against them and they did not
meet again

cob will bo seen whan the Convention meets

about evenly divided In their preferences and
that a deadlock may occur whloh will result
in the choice of a ntw candidate In such an
emergency Assumbtyman Fetor K MoCann

be found There ore unmistakable evidences
of a secret revolt nigainst OConnor all over tne >
district The friends of Ernest Nathan who I
lacked only a few votes of thenumber required
to nominate when the Convention met feel
very sore at the rejection brought about main
lylt Is said because he is a Hebrew and they I
willVnifa Mr OConnor right and left although
Mr jfathan himself to loyally supporting the
candidate EltheriJ Stewart noun a young
lawyer or George W Anderson the veteran

Almost all of the Democratic Assemblyjnn
