tutlnoss on hi own account yesterday In
the few minutes over an hour during which the

on an entirely now route and dashed ahead
with all l steam on until ho had Mayor Grant
under an accusation of having contributed

used to buy the votes oi Grants associates In

Judge Leicester Holme to Mrs Crokor and to
Dr Beokman tho family physician offering
them largo sums ot money If they would leave
C the country until tho Investigation should bo
k ovur the stained relations between Mr Croker

The first questions dealt with his lease of the

Mr Ivbt said ho wu Uiroiuth a StD
L
UoNaughton set out to do some questioning
on his own hook He nuked first about tho
witnesss trouble with Mayor Grant
1 occurred said McCann tho first year
ho was SherIff lie carried stories about me to
Mr Croker They were utterly untrue and I
proved them to be so but Mr Croker believed
that Grant was Incapable of telling a false
hood and I never could convince him other
wise Mr Croker and I had never had any
trouble until thnn Since then wo have not
been friendly We have not spoken visited
How did Mr Croker cOle to come to your
store with that money asked Senator Mo
Nauchton
1 wan to find out If I knew any ono In tho
neighborhood who would tako earn nf the
money until It was wanted 1 sucgostod Tom
Adams Ho had some financial place I think
on the elevated road and had been discharged
for ombcz7lemont but I did not know that
when I recommended him to hold the money
Arternard nomo objection was made to him on
this account by the Aldermen or some one
and ho did not get I
This started other Senators to asking ques
tions about tho money and tho witness Hale
Mr Croker came to the lore about S30 or
6 oclock near closing time He asked mo I
Adams was reliable and 1 said he ns He
knew Adams was a friend of mine He
said ho had been out all day looking after the
mater and that they had It nnangod to have
Grant anpotntod Commissioner Public Works
a soon as It was certain ho could confirmed
I was necessary ho swd to got the votes 01
the Aldermen and money had to bo raised for
that Then he showed mo the boodle It was
in packages of bills and lay In the bottom ot a
satchel such aa a lawyer might carry
HIAHD THAT MAton EXTENSIVE GRACES CAMFAIdf WAS
Senator McNaughton returned to the subject
of tho first Mayoralty campaign
Was It not known ho naked that Mr
Grace had also spent largo amount of money
In that fight e
The witness said ho bad hoard that said and
Sir Ivlns offered to put In a complete state I
ment of Mr Graces expenditures I the com
mittee wanted It
Wol not just now said Senator McXaugh
ton and asked the witness low much did
vou hoar Mr Grace bad spent 1
No particular sum was named It was un
derstood that tie was a very rich man and
that ho had spent money freely re
M Then It wan a pretty hot campaign

In politics except to voto nod tako along one or

The Reporter Help Mr Irln Hirt Mr
MeCnnnc AmailBc Talet
Tho afternoon session was conducted by a
largo Investigating commlttoo of reporters
Mayor Grant was not at his office yesterday
and the Jut Intimation he had of the dis
closures ot McCann was late in the day when
the news was carried to him by a reporter of
THE SUN He listened attentively as McCnnns
statements woro repeated to him and then ha
shook his head doubtfully und said
The man must be crazy I really think that
tho only charitable explanation of tho matter
Is that McCanu Is a loon and Is not responsi
ble for what ha says
The Mayor said that he wanted t deny with
out any qualtUcatlnn every statement of Mc
Canns that rellectod on him
I cannot mako this denial too strong he
said There Is absolutely no truth in any
thing that McCanu said that reflects upon mO
The only time I uas ever In McCanns res
taurant was ono day when Mr Croker and I
were out dining On our return w a stopped at
the restaurant for a few minutes and Mr
Crokor Introduced me to the fellow The fact
that I have not been at the restaurant since
will Illustrate how favorably I was impressed
with him McCann used this solitary visit a
a means ol Inducing my friends to frequent his
place I learned that hu led < 1 them to bo
llovo that I was 0101 there and I was
1110 of being thereat certain tlmos specified
by himself The result wm that my friends
used to go there In hopo of meeting me and
when I next met them and they expressed sur
firlso at their failure to meet me In McCanns
place It put rue In an embarrassing position
In spite of this however I never explained to
them that I was seldom at the restaurant and
was careful to mold saying anything that
might injure MnCunn I wai willing that ho
thould got along and prosper and I cannot
understand why lie made this attack upon mo
It may be because he thinks I wa Instru
mental in takinu the place trora him Tho only
persons who were ponlblo I for this were
lark Commissioners llobb Bordon and Hutch
Ins with neither of whom hate I tho Bllqhtost
influence Even I 1 had Is It likely that I
should wield It to Injure a relative ot Mr
Croker
The statement that ho bad contributed co
0 to a fund off ISO 00 to b distributed
among the Aldermen 01 ISM In Older 1 In
Unco them to confirm his appointment as Com
missioner of Public Works th Mayor sold WW
too absurd and ridiculous t notice
In the lint place ho said although my
name was mentioned lor that place I was
not a candidate for It and I would not hiue
accepted It Again I bad just passed through
the Mayoralty light In which I had been de
feated I would like to know the man who
would have BOOcK to spare after such acontest
aoontest
The more you think about this statement the
more CI aZT it roust appear At that time J was
YlcuIresldeut of the hoard of Aldermen and
I was making a tight aalnst the boodle
combine I wa excessively unpopular because
the majority of tho lloard was committed to
thollroadway railroad scheme Nothing cIte
was thought of When tho exposure came and
U amm my was religiously iclralnlng from In
terfering In behalf of her representatives in tbo
Uoard who had got Into rouble and watt com
pelling them to leave the organization do 00
not think Ihut those Aldermen or thou railroad
rllro
puople would have used any know ledge they hod
against Mr Crokor or me to compel Tammany
to lend them 0 belting hand 1 Boglgautloan
attempt to buy the lloard with so huge a turn
of money would certainly have been known to
aOlo woo would havo made capital of It Bo
you see how absurd tbo statement Is The
story that Mr Croker had lHOouo lu a satchel
and wax hunting around to find somebody to
take cure of it for him IK simply ridiculous1
Mr McLann says hn hears that while you
wore Hberirr you gave 1loBslo Croktr r > 0 on
each of IHsdlfferout occasions aud that this
tls
money 125000 won Mr Croker1 share of the
IiroflU of tho Sheriff ore
That Is as ridiculously false as all the rest
al
roal
I am Flossie Crokeis godfather and the duty
of a godfather if I understand It Is i to take a
Ifelonjt Interest In his godchild and to assure
her thai this Interest is alive by giving her
Dome token on each ol her birthdays This Is
what I did and no more I gave the child
prlaont but I never gave her any such latin
lous amount as 25000 Tho mono I gave her

Whan ho heard that MoCann had said that
Private Secretary Holme had made many calls
on Mrs Croker and on her tally physician

to join 51 r Croker abroad Mayor Orant said
I know that Mr Croker U I very 111 Ills

agony 1 understand that for some time it was
necessary for home person to be always In attendance
awaslu
ondance upon him In order to apply cooling
cloths to his stomach This won tho last news
1 received from him and of our this
makes It clear that ho Is a very sick man I
H very natural that MI8 Croker should join
II ilmvery
conclusion the Mayor said that MoCann
has been threatening for some limo to fake
Dublin something which ho seemed to think
would InJuro the Mayor and Mr Crokor
Mayor I suppose be Is satisfied now said the
In noun TEsTIFIEs
ExJudge mime ald that be bad visited

The boy asked me said Mr Holme to
leo hU mother und urge her to join bin father I
They understood that Mr Croker Intended
Jolnlnl them In May but they wanted her to
come earlier I Is not true that I visited her
bruo times in ono day My visit was just
bout tbo tlmejH hen them were a lot of rumors
ielng circulated In reference to the critical
condition of Mr Crokers health and Mrs
Croker asked mo to call on Dr JJeekmin and
sex what he thought about going abroad and

request of her son and I culled upon Dr Beck

all there Is to that story
MM Croker of courso understood that If
she wanted to co Ibo expense need not stand
in her way She IB 1 not rich
Mils CIlOKEIt ANTI DJI 1IEEKMAN HY so TOO
Mrs Croker said yesterday afternoon that
the story that 31 llolmo had endeavored to
get her to leave the country to avoid being
Biibpti niiod by tbo committee wan untrue ni
llolmo had called upon her and had talked to
her about going lo dormant hut It was be
ceuso her husbands symptoms bat become HO
10
snrious that his life was feared for and It was
val
thought lost tosummonhU family Mr Holmo
had acted as her husbands friend and her own
In the matter Dr Beckman gave a similar
account of Mr Holmno vlolts to him Mr
Crokors Illness ho said had a ° umed a phasu
that seemed to muko I necessary that the phy
sloians who were treating him should havo the
benefit of advice and Information that was ob
talnablo only from one who hod been cognizant
of his case from tho llrot and know Its history
thoroughly To that end and with tho idea
that I was essential to Mr Crokors recovery
iJioposltlons woro made Dr Ueokman
said that ho should go abroad Tho
only reason the schenio was not carried out
was that Mr Crokers symptoms chanced for
tho better and Ur looLuuiuu presence V S
not necessary after all I ho same reasons Dr
Hook man said had made It seem nontlal that
Mr Crokers family should join him at once
although he did not think that Mrr Croker
wits Infoined of tho full extent of her hus
