The basement of 310 West Sixty-ninth street
is the headquarters of the John J. O'Donnell
Association, which was organized on Nov. 3.
In the language of a member, "to keep der
boys off der corners." This was what the po
lice had been trying to do for many months,
and several nightsticks hadbeenwornoutby
Capt. Berghold's policemen In the endeavor.
The lads carried many painful reminders of
the effectiveness of a nightstick before they
became convinced that lounging on street
corners carried too serious penalties to be al
together enjoyable. The club was the outcome)
of this conviction.
It was organized with seventeen members,
whose ages range from 17 to 20 years. The
preamble to the by-laws sets forth the object
of the club as told by the member quoted
above. The by-laws contained only three
rnles. These provided that no one was to
bring beer into the club room, that no member
must Introduoe an outsider to the pleasure
and conveniences of the club, and that a mem
ber who resigned forfeited his Initiation fee
and whatever he bad paid into the club as
does. The Initiation fee was si. and the dues
26 oents a week. Boxing gloves. Indian clubs,
and checkers were provided for the amuse
ment of the members.
No one expected the sergeant-at-arms to en
force the rule about beer, so he helped the
members break It John J. O'Donnell. the
Standard-bearer of tho club, broke
he second rule ail to pieces the first
week by. taking a friend to the club.
The friend used the boxing gloves and played
checkers and aroused theTre of the members
by his mere presence. At the next meeting of
the club it was voted to fine O'Donnell 26
cents for bringing in a stranger.
"I'llboblowedif I pay it an' here's me res
ignation." said O'Donnell. "and I want me
dollar Initiation fee and 60 oents I give da
club for dues."
It was known that O'Donnell would fight

" You'll not get it" said the club in ohorus.
"Dlvei a member will lave the room till I do,
an' now you're actin' nasty about It I want
the boxing gloves that none of rouse know
how to use." said O'Donnell.
The club arose and rrepared to dislodge the
Intruder. He drew a small revolver from his
pocket and defied them. Conrad Maobofer
flung a chair at O'Donnell to disarm him. The
chair hit O'Donnell on the head, cutting a gash
In his scalp. He discharged two shots from bis
revolver without effect and the club closed In
on him and pitched him into the street. There
he was reenforoed by his father. John, and his
brother Patrick: but before the tide of battle
could be turned Policeman Everett appeared
and took O'Donnell off to the West 100th street
Justice White held the prisoner yesterday In

more trouble as a club than as loungers on the

but I can say that the amount of the shortage
Is near $10,000. There has been no talk what
ever of criminal proceedings. Mr. Jurgens
was at one time a member of the Paris Bourse,
and has many friends In Europe He thought
he would be able to make good his shortage
by going over there, and he expects to be book

Archblshon Kenriok was bom in Dublin on
Aug. 17, 1800. His parents were ardent re
ligious people, and an uncle was one of the
oat-known priests In the Dublin diocese,
hder the guidance of this unole voung Ken
rick made bis earlier studies, at the comple
tion ot whloh he entered Maynnoth College for
his theological course. In 1832 he was or
dained a priest and was appointed an assist
ant at the Church of 8ts.SIary and Peter on
the Bathmlnes road, in tho suburbs of Dublin.
Father Kenrlck had been stationed at this
church a year, whon his elder brother. Fran
cis Patrick, who several years before had left
Ireland for tho American mission, and who in
1830 had been consocrated coadjutor to Bishop
Conwell of Philadelphia, incited him to leave
Ireland and settlo iu Philadelphia. In the fall
of 1833 voung Father Kenrlck arrived
In Philadelphia and at once became nt
Dilated with tho diocese. He began his
American career as principal of the diocesan
seminary and rector of the cathedral. For a
while he edjtod the CathoUo Herald, and be also
wroto religious and devotional works, one ot
wbloh. "Anglican Ordinations" is considered
an authority on that subject and another.
"Devotions for the Month of May," was the
first Mar book printed In the English language.
For nine years Father Konrlck remameoin
Philadelphia. In 1841 Bishop Bosati ot Bt
Louis applied for a coadjutor, and recom
mended to the Pope the appointment of Father
Kenriok. On Nov. 30. 1841. Bishop ltosati
himself consecrated the young priest a Bishop
tn the Philadelphia cathedral. Among the
Ijoys who acted aa acolytos at that ceremony
was Stephen Vincent Ryan, at present BlBhop
of Buffalo. In 1843 Bishop Bosati died, and
Bishop Konrlck succeeded him as head of the
Bt Louis dioeose. In 1847 Bt Louis was made
an archdlooese, and Bishop Kenrlck became an
Archblshon Kenrlck administered his see
alone until 1872. whon somo of his friends,
fearing that his inrrcuelng dutlos might in jure
his health, advised him to nave a coadjutor ap
pointed. The Most Bev. Patrick J. Byan. the
firesont Archbishop of Philadelphia, was sc
ooted, and was Arohbishop Kenrlck' s auxiliary
until 1884. when he was transferred to Phila
delphia, tiince that time Archbishop Kenrlck,
although the oldest prelate in the United
States, nas directed tho affairs ot bis Impor
tant chargo without a coadjutor's assistance.
Tho Arohbishop is called "tho Grand Old Man
of the American hierarchy." His mental and
physical strength aro remarkable, and he has
not only endured, but oven Invited all tho fa
tigue and responsibility attached to his high
"Years have bent the once erect form."
wrote a blographor of Archbishop Kenrlck not
long ago, "out they have robbed It of none of
that dignity which Is essentially his own. His
head is of that type peculiar to Intellect: his
features are large his forehead expanding
widely at tho base and deeply furrowed with
wrinkles: bis eyes aro deeply set tho color

slightly tingod, with sliver, as Is his hair: the
expression ot his eyes Is keen and penetrat

In their depths. As an orator, in his
earlier rears, the Archbishop was especially
fine: hie voice was calm and impassioned, his
delivery one ot thorough and convincing argu

created such interest that tho church was
crowded until entrance was barely possible.

and Oreek, well acquainted with Hebrew, and
speaks four continental languages. He Is also

The name of Mrs. E. 8. West figured promi
nently In the toll announcement ot Rutgers
Female College this year under tho various
titles of lady principal. President ot the Asso
ciation of the Alumnus, and instructor In his
tory and Biblical science: but at present where
her name fonnorlr appeared Is a black blot of
ink. The name of Mrs. West's daughter, Cor
nelia B. West A.B., principal ot the collegiate
preparatory department Is also burled under
an ink blot Tho two women, mother and
daughter, and the mother's brother all lived
comfortably In the college buildings, at 64 and
CO West Fifty-fifth street up to Oct 27. The
brother is now on Black woll's Island, and the
mother and daughter have gone no one knows
Mrs. West had tho reputation ot being a very
devout as well as a very ladylike woman.
And when, six years ago, she applied to Dr.
Bamuel D. Burchard, who was thon Prosldont
ot the college, tor tho post ot lady prlnolpal. It
was her prepossessing appeoraneo and her
dovout manner that won her success. She had
no recommendations or credentials of any
kind, and nobody had tho slightest idea who
she was or where she camo from. Bhe said her
father was a missionary to Java, and, sheox
pressed her regret that it was not the will of
Provldenoo.that she. too, might bo helping
In tho noble work. On tho strength ot this,
the good-hearted Doctor engaged hor. .
Mrs. West tilled tho place satisfactorily. One
ot her mnnr duties was to mako out the bills
and recolvo the moner from tho nuplls. Last
rear, for somo unaccountable reason, the ool
lege ran bobind financially., and a, number ot
the teachers did not get tholr full salaries.
Mrs West was among tho-numbor, and she
boro up under the disappointment with the
best possible grace. , , ,
There was not the slightest suspicion that
anything was going wrong until after Dr. A.
W. Ferris, the grandson or Chancellor Ferris,
was appointed treasurer of tho oollege, in Jan
nary lost He undertook to keen a stricter ao
count of tho financial affairs than had pre
viously been the custom, and, among other
things, he asked Mrs, Wost for a list ot the
pupils. The list she gave him did not tally In
all respects with the list sho horself had to do
witti. hut at the time no discrepancy was
Dr. Ferris found In the summer that tho pri
mary department was apparently, not paying
for itself, and he thereforo decided to do away
with tho department When ho Informed the
primary teachers why their services wero no
longer required by the college, thoy insisted
that something was wrong. Tho primary de
partment thoy said, must certainly bo sup
porting itself. The books were produced, and
an investigation brought to light the fact that
a number of scholars had been attending the
school of whom Mrs. West had given him no
record. Bhe was called upon for an explana
tion, but could only confoss that she had
taken $200 of the tuition fees, which, however,
she Intondedto turn orerto tho treasurer lust
as soon as her pressing expenses would allow
her to do so.
Her exouse was so plausible that sho was
allowed to retain her post Bat before long
other discrepancies began to show themselves
to Dr. Ferris, and he discovered that the fe
male prlnolpal had regularly managed to take
commissions from all tho money that passed
through her hands. Letters with money in
them sent to the treasurer miscarried, pupils
reported to be free pupils were discovered to
nave paid their tuition regularly, and shifts
and expedients of various kinds came to light
Just how large the amount of her peculations
was could not be accurately determined, but
indications wore that over $3,000 waa missing
during the year.
A meeting of the trustees was ealled. and the
facts were laid before them. The proofs ad
mitted of no doubt and on Oct 27 Sirs. West
was Informed that her services were no longer
needed. Miss West resigned, and the drunk
ard brother, who had been taken from Blaok
well's Island to live in tho basement of tho col-
i ego, lost control of bis appetite shortly after
he departure of his relatives and was returned
to the Island.

A few days after It was ma'de Louisa returned

ot herabsenoo, and when It was refused she
loft the girl in the house while she went to
take counsel of friends. When sho rotnrnod

of the theft He sold he had taken nothing
from 108 MoKlbbln street but some clothes
belonging to Louisa aud some presents that
he had made her. He considered, under the
circumstances, that he bad a right to take
them. Justice Goettlng thought differently
and adjudged him guilty. Tuttlo cried like a
child as he was led back to tho cells to await
sentenoe. He is respectably connected in
Wllllamsburgl). but he has not been on good
terms wltb his family for more than a rear.
The girl said that Tuttlo had furnished a
Rood home for hor and that she had a right to
vo'ftlth him If sho chose. . Her mother Is
separated from her fathor and her homo was
not happy. She know that Tuttle was married,

declared thnt his trunk and vallsd contained,
nothing dutiable. His statoment was fonnd to
bo truoln regard to his valise. The big trunk
was packed full of men's and womon's
silk underclothing and other articles that the
Inspectors decidod woro dutiable Mr. Budd Is
a dealer In imported undorclothlng and men's
furnishing goods at 1.101 Broadway, Among
tho, things found in his trunk, wars sqveral

Mr. Budd, when told that the oontonts of the,
trunk wero to be seized, declared that thoy;;
wero privileged, ns thoy wero not Imported for,
sale but as presents for tho membors ot his'
family. Thore was no ono to put In a good
word for him, and the things wero sont to tho.
Appraiser's stores for valuation. Ther were(
appraised at $1,550.85. aud tho duty at $0235.
Mr. Budd offered tn glvo a bond for tho total
amount but tho offor wan not nocepted. and
tho, goods are still in tho hands ot tho ap
praisers. Whon Mrs. Mlnnlck arrived on Oct 12 by the
French line steamer La Bretango from Havre
Bho duels red that her thrco trunks contained
Sothlng dutiablu. Hbo was met on tho dock hy
xaminor Joseph C Biglln, a brother of Bor
i nard, the Bnrgo Ofllce carter, aud by Inspeotor
Fawoott who told hor that Instructions had
been rocolvcd that all the courtesies posslhlo
bo extended to hor, aud that sho bo assisted
to get her baggage away early.' A
cursory examination was tuado and tlie
trunks woro marked O. K... whon. ns re
futed In The Bun yosterday. Chief of
Inspectors J. H. Storey ordered them to be
stopped and reexamined. He hadrocolvod In
formation from Kurope that Mrs. Mlnnlck was
employed lir Mme. Mary A. Connelly, a dress
maker In Fifth avenue, to smuggle dresses for
her customers. Whon the trunks were exam
ined twenty-six handsome dresses were found.
From theirsizes it was evident that thoy wero
Intonded for different. women.
Tho dresses were appraised at $8,000. and
sent to the seizure room. On Ool. Storey's
complaint Collector Hendricks refused to re
lease them, and Mrs. Mlnnlck was informed
that not only would the dresses be retained,
but that she would bo prosecuted criminally
for the attempt to smuggle. Smuggling Is
puniebablo by ilnoorimprisonmontorboti-.
Mrs. Mlnnlck retained lawyer Charles A.
Hess. Deputy Collector Pholps of tho law de
partment ot the Custom House held that
under tho statute dutiable goods seized
might be reloasod on payment of the duty and
tho tiling ot a bond sufficient to cover tho en
tire value of the goods, but in the faon of the
evidence that a regular trade was being car
ried on in dresses he declined to advlso the
release of Mrs. Jllnnick's trunks. Mr. Hoss
took tho m&ttor to the United States Court
and receivod from Judge Brown an order call
ing on the customs officials to deliver the
trunks when the provisions ot tho statute
were fulfilled.
Hero is the statute:
Upon the prayer ot any elatm-nt to the Court that
any roodi. irarei. or mercn-ndue seized ana proee
cntea under any law respecting the revenue from Im
port! ebould be delivered to him the

equal to the mm at which the property prayed to be de
ll, ered it appraiied. and produce a certificate from t&e
collector off the dletrtct where the trial le baa. that the
dnilee on the roods, warei. and merchandise have been
field or secured In like manner as If the eame bad been
egally entered, the Court shall by rule order each roods.
wares, or merchandise to be deUrered to such claimant.
The Custom House people offered no opposi
tion, and as soon as Mrs. Minnlok had paid the
duty, $3,4U2.21. and had givon the reaulred
bond her trunks were delivered to her. In
giving up the trunks tho authorities parted
with the evidence on which theyjiad depended,
to convict Mrs. Minnlok of smuggling. "
Mr. Budd's belongings are stflfln the seizure
room. They wore seized moro than a month
earlier than Mrs. Mlnnlck's trunks, and (with
the exception that there was no order to ex
tend to him all possible courtesy, and that Jo
seph O. Biglln did not meet him on the pier)
under exactly similar conditions. The course
-pursued by Mr. Buddafter his trunk was seized
was the same as that taken by Mrs. Mlnnlck;
Ha got a refusal when ho applled-for'their re
lease. as she had, and he retained Lawyor
Heps, as sho did. ,,Mr. Hess took.tho matter to
tho United States court and exhibited the old
staturo to Judge Brown. . - .
No decision Tn the matter has yet been ren
dered. Mr. Hess, acting for Mr. Budd. Is pre
Sared to pay the duty demanded and to file a
ond covorlng tho total value of the seized
goods, but tho oustoms officials have refused
to pormit him to do so. There is no chargo
nsnlnst Mr. lluddof Import! ngobscone Images.
Tho charge Is simply smuggling the same
charge that was made against Mrs. Mlnnlck.
Mr. Hess does not believe that a fooling of gal
lantry which would prohibit putting a woman
to any inconvenience is the only explanation
that can be given of the different treatment
received by his two ollents.
Examiner Biglln said yesterday that he had
no interest in Mrs. Minnlok or hor baggage.
He had novor seen her before ho mother on
tho Fronch company's dock on Oct 12. He did
not ask tho Collector to roleaso the baggage,
nor did ho mako any effort in her behalf. He
denied that it was through him that the ordor
granting to Mrs. Mlnnlck all possiblo courtesy
was granted. Ho is not In the habit ot meeting
Incoming vessels, and It wnB only byan acci
dent that ho was on tho dock when Mrs. Min
nlok landed. "...,
The trunks owned by Mr. F. de Couroy Mar
and Mrs. Mar ot Washington that ware seized
on tho Majestic on Wednesday by customs in
