1 LLOYD CATCHES A THIEF. it cosra the assistant district ATTORNEY MANY DRINKS. lie Fauna the ThleC Rolling Up the Hall Carpet When II Cot Hame lie Let Rim Tako It and Led Him from sateen to Haloen, Treating at Kavh, I'nlll a Cop Turned Vp. When Assistant Dlttrlct Attorney Frank Lloyd unlocked tbo door of tho flat houso where ha Uvea, at 310 West Fifty-eighth atreet, on Monday night, ho aavr a man rolling up the car pot of tho hall. It was 7:30 o'clock and Mr. Lloyd mil hungry. A few minutes beforo, when ho parted with hit friend, lUvlnsky, he Bald: "Morrlo, I'll have to leave you; I'm to hungry I could eat a door mat. I'll hurry homo to dinner and eat everything In sight. I'll leave nothing but the carpet." ftn ruhatnir Intn hm liall Mp. T.1avA saw thu man who did not Intend to leave him that car pet to eat. lie was a big felloTT, broad shouldered, and nearly six feet tall. Mr. Lloyd measures feet 74 Inches. Although a email man he has a great mind. What he lacks physically he possesses mentally. lie Is diplomatic Bo vr hen he saw the big man rolling up the hall carpet he said: , W "What are you going to do vrlth It r PUB "Bring it down to Stewart's in Twentjr-thlrd J 1 street and have it cleaned," said the big man, as IB ho kept on rolling up the carpet. "Why don't tho Janitor take it npt" said fl Lloyd, who now saw visions of burglars as he looked back In the ball from which a carpet had HJ been stolen a month ago. I "The Janitor la sick." said the big man, aa he proceeded to tie up the roll of oarpot. Hj " Ho will be," thought Mr. Lloyd, recollecting the Janitor's illness on a previous carpet oo- caslon. J " How did you get in I" said Mr. Lloyd. " Twigged th' hal' bell," replied the big fellow. " Hal Bell is a District Attorney, like myself," H thought Mr. Lloyd, " and he's too bright to bo H twigged." Bo Mr. Lloyd said: HJ "I see you'r English by your accent. Tou H talk of twigging Hal Bolls; but Hal's a friend ot H mine; that's a Joke." H "Hal bat hal" laughed the big fellow. P "Would you mind 'oldlng the bloomln door K hopon while I carry hout the carpet t" A "Why, that's do troublo to me." said Lloyd, ft w ho is the essonce of politeness. H So llttlo Mr. Lloyd held open the door while 9J the big fellow carried out tho carpet on his HI shoulder. I " Where's your wagon 1" asked Lloyd, follow- 1 Ing the big man out on the sidewalk. J '"Down tho road a bit," answered the big fel- ""Well, we'll have a ball," said Lloyd; "what do tou think I" ... M "I'm willln," said the big man. I So thoy walked over to Eighth avenue and H stopped in Rclsonloebcr's. The bit; follow car- rleu the big roll of carpet on his shoulder and B H tue littlo man carried a big roll ot bills in his M H pocket. The big man found after awhile that hta load was Retting heavy. So be kopt taking Hi H cigars. The little man also took cigars, and then H theystarted to walk downtown togother. HI "There's not a cop In sight, and I'vo walked half a mile." thought the little man, and the big min also thought about the cops who were not H in sight. So the only thing to find was another W saloon. This was an easy task. The big man took big "hookers," while llttlo Mr. Lloyd took M llttlo rpromenades," which were smaller than Coney Island "collars." m " I know a place where we 11 get better stuff than this," said Mr. Lloyd, and the two men M walked to the corner of Fifty-third street. Both men evidently believed by this time that there was I I no such thing as a polloomrji in New York. The big man felt that the roll he carried on his shoul- derwas getting bigger and heavier. The llttlo man felt that the roll in his pocket was getting H smaller and lighter. Both again thought of cops. Theblgmanieemedawfullynorvous.lmtnotneur as nervous aa the little man. In the Kltty-thlrd H street saloon the big man Increased the size of H H his " bookers" and tho little man poured out less I in his glass, so that both felt like apologizing to H H the bartender, one for taking too much, the other i for taking too little. "Ain't that roll ot carpet getting hearyt" 1 asked Mr. Lloyd. " faam'f t ain't," admitted tho big fellow. , "It's too far to carry that carpet down to K Twonty-thlrd street," continued Mr. Lloyd. MJ' "Let us walk up again and have another at H Relsenweber's." Bo they walked up again. Mr. Lloyd was now convinced that Oommls- sloner Parker had ordered a strlko among the H oops. So more was added to the big man's load until H hestaggered under the roll on his shoulder. H The little man grew more nervous and felt the roll in his pocket. It was becoming smaller. H After they had "a few moro" the big man said he could carry the carpet no longer, lie wanted to leave it in a saloon. "Goods turn serves 'nothcr.ho said; "I'll leave sis carpetr-hlc here, where got smother load: eh, me boy t" " Now," said tho little man, " take it back and throw it in tho basement of our house until to ll morrow." "Ooodidea," remarked the big fellow, who was then led back to the West Fifty-eighth street house, whore ho dropped the carpet in the H area. f v But there was still no sign of a cop, and Mr. Lloyd suggested to the big man that they go over to Ninth avenue and Fifty-ninth street. H " We'll get some genuine stuff there," he said. "Did you ever tackle Antediluvian I" "No, but I'm willln'." answered the pig man. . " One more 'n that's ail, eh I" " That's all," said Mr. Lloyd. 9 Around to Fifty-ninth street and down to Ninth avenue walked the big and little man, arm in arm, alscusslng politics. "Oh, for a cop, sighed Mr. Lloyd. At Fifty-ninth atreet and Ninth avenue they had another and another and a third. "Let us go over and have a nightcap at Relsenwebers," finally said Lloyd, and the big man answered: "I'm willln'; good idea, nightcap." K And they walked back to Eighth avenne. b "Oh, for half a cop, or even a button," sighed I Lloyd. Then be decided to stop a passerby and H explained that he had a thief In tow and wanted K a policeman. He stopped many, but every one of P them believed he was an escaped lunatlo and f B hurrlod to get away from htm. Finally, one B .- " man, who knew the Assistant District Attorney, Wk reoognlted tho secret signs and the queer mo- & tlons made by Mr. Lloyd and started olt for a m" policeman. f After the big and little ms n had had " Just one t more " Policeman Costcllo come running toward I them. H "Arrest this fellow," said Lloyd. "He's a H thief; I've had him in tow for an hour looking B for a cop, and I'vo almost gone broke buying I drinks for him." The big man protested, but was lugged to tho West Forty-seventh street police station, whero I he was locKed up for the night on a charge of H stealing tbo carpet. H Yesterday when arraigned In tho Yorkvllle f Police Court tho big man described himself as H Albert Trovers Wellington, '23 years old. Ho I admitted taking tho carpet out of the ball, but P said the Janitor had ordered him to take it to have it tleanod. Mr. Lloyd, who appeared as H complainant, produred the Janitor in court. The Janitor said (hat Wellington had no authority K. to take the carpet, and that be was a thief. j Magistrate Brann held Wellington for trial. Hu GUBTOMEIl XXMOTEH SOB PJSRJVItT.

The harmony arrangement which was effeeted between the Second Assembly district factions In Tammany prior to the January primaries has been knocked into a cocked hat, and the fight Is on again between Alderman Blown and his friends and ex-Police Justice Patrick Diwer. The first difficulty was encountered at the first meeting of the District General Committee, when the Diwer Chairman, Daniel J. Reardon, declared the meeting adjourned after the defeat of a motion to have the regular meetings of the committee at the ctub house of the P. Diwer Association, 69 Madison street. Tho Diwer mon retired with Chairman Reardon, but the Ilrown factlonisu remained; the Vice-chairman took the chair, and 220 Park row was named as the regular meeting placo. The next movo of the Diwer men was the sending of a notice Blamed hv Chairman Itnarrinn to, " members flf the District General Com mittee directing them not to attond any meet ings called to be held at 230 Park row. It was said yesterday that Reardon also served notice on the district leader, Francis J. O'Connor, not to Issue a call for a meeting In his (the Chair man s) name, or he might be prosecuted. This warning did not deter Leader O Connor from call IP.8 jn)eetlng of the committee for last Monday. The Dlwerltes refused to attond. Among the absentees wore Chairman Reardon and Secretary John Gauhan, who got those places under the harmonr arrangement. As it was evident that these officers would not act unless Mr. Dlvvor's club house was chosen for district headquarters, the Brown mon prpceedod to depose thorn. Michael J. Deery, a Brown man, was tironiotod from Vice-Chalrman to be Chairman. Jeremiah t) Connor, another Brown man, waa chosen Vioo Chairman, and Daniel Augustine, knottier of the "m.wrUiRctlonlts, was put in Gaughan a place. The Dlvvcr factlonists will contest the leyallty of the aotlon of the committee before the Execu tive Committee In Fourteenth street. It Is said, hut it Is not considered probablo that they will be encouraged thore. TO HATE AX BZEOTIOIT AirTWAT. Jersey City DemeemU Going Ahead In Spite or the New Law Republicans Won't Act. The passage of the bill abolishing spring elec tions in cities of tbo first class in New Jersey will not prevent the Democrats of Jersey City from holding an election on April 13. Allan McDcrmott and Senator Daly have advised Leader Robert Davis and the Democratic com mittee that the new law Is unconstitutional. Tho Board of Aldermen, with a large Demo cratic majority, has control of the election ma chinery, and has already made arrangements for holding the election. The notice of registry and election has beon advertised, and yesterday was tho first day for registration. Ail the registry places wero open, the election boards on duty, and a largo number ot names were registered, The Democratlo primaries will be held to-morrow and the candidates nom inated whether Gov. Griggs signs the bill or not. The candidates who probably will be nomlnatod are Edward Hoos for Mayor, William F. Mldd llge for Alderman at Large, Anthony llauckand James 8. Nolan for Street and Water Commis sioners, and James Burns, Ambrose Gulton, William G. Hawotb, William J. Calnon. Charles Maxwell. Richard Cummlngs, Uonry Gotthardt, Frank King, Frank A. Follln, Nathaniel H. Smith, Rudolph K. Uartmon, and John K. Boldt for Aldermen. The Republicans will not bold any primaries, make any nominations, or take any part in tho election. An application may be made to tho courts to compel them to hold an election. Robert Davis says that no matter what the Re publicans may do the Democrats will proceed with the election in tbo regular form, elect their candidates, and then resort to tho courts to have the officers olected lnstallod. It Is not probable that any decision will be obtained from tho courts beforo Nov. 2, the date fixed for the election under the new law If Gov. Griggs signs the bill. TFOBTZT JITEX TO THE FROST. Four of Thorn Indorsed by tbe Organisation for Federal Offices. The Exccutl vo Committee of the Republican organization in Brooklyn, attor several confer ences, has finally decided on its candidates tor sorno of tho Federal offices soon to be distributed by the now Administration. Robert A. Sharkey of the Twenty-fifth ward has been indorsed for Colloctor of Internal Revenue, Hugo Uirsch of tho Third want for United States District At torney, Alderman Charles J. Huubert of the Twenty-seventh ward for United States Marshal, nnd E. 8. Fowler of the Twentyecond ward for Appraiser of tho Port. The candidates are all closely Identified with tho Worth faction, and nro too leaders In their respective ballwlcks. It is expected that they all hav e the support of Senator Piatt. Congressmen Fisher, Bonnett, and Howe havo also promised to look out for their interests at Washington. No candidate for the Fottmattershlp has been named, as it is understood that Postmaster Sullivan, who was a pronounced sound-money Democrat in the late campaign, will be allowed to serve out bis term, which docs not explro until Sentember. The WlUla faction will also name candidates for the various Federal offices in Brooklyn, and will look to Congressman Francis H. Wilson to help them along in Washington. Ex-Supervisor-at-Large Thomas Fitchle, who made tho mem orable MoKinley demonstration in the State Convention, expects to get some nice place in the scramble. RICHMOND COUNTY RALZOT3. Printer Kinoes Demurrer te an Indlotment Against Ulm Sustained, The Appsllato Division of the Supremo Court In Brooklyn has sustained tho demurror to the indictment of Adolph L. King of Richmond county charging that he presentod to tho Board of Supervisors of that county a false and fraudu lent claim for printing the eloctlon ballots. It waa alleged that his bill was more than $3,000 In excess of the fair and reasonable value of the work, and that Mr. King knew this. No special Brlce had been contracted for. The Appellate ourt says in the decision: " Wo do not intend to at all concede the re spondent's contention that the amount of the claim presented against a county can under no circumstances constitute Indictable fraud. All we decide here is that where the claim Is un liquidated and not contracted for at any specified price, or the subject of any statutory provision, a statement of excessive or exorbitant value un accompanied by uny false statement of collateral Lircumsiunces doos not constitute an indictable ollcnco." APOSTLES OF SIZrFR. Talking or Ways and Means to Renew the Campatsn. Denver, CoL, March 10. The conference of silver men was In session until late last night. The members refused to say what was done. It is known, however, that the meeting was largely for tbo purpose of talking ovorund deciding upon ways and means of continuing the silver campaign.

More Soldiers Reeded In the Philippines, and aa Spain Can't Send Them from Home Tnej KlnstflerremCnba 1S,000,000 erspaln'a War Fund Has Bern Stolen on tbe Island, Havana, March 13. The Spanish army in Cuba Is. In fact, not so strong as the Madrid Government believes, and the order sent to Gen. Woyler to withdraw some 10,000 men from the flold for tho purpose of sending them to the Philippines has disclosed one ot the biggest frauds perpetrated by Spanish officials since Cuba has been under the rulo of Spain. Fitly per cent., at loost, of all tho losses In the army, Incurred either In battle or by disease, has not been reported to the Madrid authorities. Nevertheless, the pay of tho dead soldiers and the monoyfor tholr provisions and clothing havo been regularly charged to the Spanish Govern ment and pocketed by the cashiers ot the bat talions, in accordance with an understanding existing betwoen them and the General Inten deht of Finances of the Army and the Captain aonoral. Such Is the actual fact Since Gen. Weyler landed In Cuba, thirteen months ago, It is es timated that more than 91o,000,000 has been Btolen In this way from tho troasury out of the 930,000,000 provided for the maintenance ot the army. When tho Liberal press of Madrid made Its energetic campaign against Gen. Woylora few months ago, this fact was revealed, but the Gov ernment received such an Indignant protest from tho Captaln-Goneral that Sefior Canovas himself was docelvod, and defended Weyler. Some Jour nalists were arrested, but tho accused Captain Gonerol remained In office. Canovas undoubt edly believed In Woyler's good faith. In face of the presont critical situation in the Philippines and the Impossibility of the Govern ment sending more troops to the archipelago from home, Sefior Canovas concelvod the idea that 15,000 men could easily be spared from Cuba if the regular army, aa reported by Wey ler, was 160,000 strong. An anpeal to the patriotism of tbe Spanish residents of Cuba might bo made, and more than 20,000 volunteers would surely be obtained from the towns to re place the 13,000 troops who were to be with draw n. But, in fact, the regular soldiers of 8paln In Cuba number little more than 100,000 able bodied mon. All tho others are cither sick In the hospitals or havo been killed by tho insur gents or by disease. To withdraw 10,000 men under theso circumstances, when the vitality of tho revolution Is aa great as ever, would be practically to pronounce the abandonment of the island. What could Weyler do In view ot these ex plicit orders from Madrid! Ho Is not tho man to confess his peculations. So he began the con centration of the troops at tho Cuban seaports. The Government at Madrid nevertheless was informed by othors ot tho real situation, and then excited and vigorous despatches began to pass between Madrid and Havana, which made it necessary for Weyler to come to the capital from Placctos In Santa Clara province. Tho revelations were very embarrassing for Sefior Canovas, for thoy placed tho Spanish Government In tho dilemma ot having to choose betwoen Cuba and tho Philippines, as has already been reported in Tun Sun. Tho recent great defeats of tho Spaniards in the archi pelago added to the gravity of the situation. It is absolutely necessary to send more soldiers to Manila. It Is absolutely impossible to supply them from Spain. Cuba, therefore, must fur nish the troops, cost what It may. Reports prevail that a Cabinet crisis la Im pending in Spain, but at tho samo time the friends of Sefior Sagasta say that tho Liberal party wltl not tako tbo responsibility of tho Government under the present desporato con ditions in Spain. Gen. Gomez, meanwhile, la making a brilliant campaign in Santa Clara province. He does not Intend to march furthor to the west until he has received positive assurances that Gen. Roloff's expedition has safoly lauded and has met Gen. Garcia's force. With the artillery and other munitions brought by RolofT, the army ot Gen. Gomez will be in better condition to Invade Matanzas, whero the forces of Gen. Botoncourt are awaiting it. A CALL TO SPAIN FOB TROOPS. 90,000 More Soldier Seeded at Once Manila. MADniD, March 16. The Archbishop of Manila has cabled to the authorities here that 20,000 additional troops to reinforce tho Spanish sol diery in the Philippines are imperatively neces sary, and that thero should be no delay In for warding them. M'KENNA AND TEE DAUNTLESS. Tbe nature of an Armed Expedition and the Necessities or tbe Filibuster. WAaniNQTON, March 10. Tho filibustering operations between this country and Cuba occu pied tho attention ot tho Cabinet to day. Attorney-General McKenna gavo his views on tho subject of permitting alleged filibustering steamers to clear for Cuban ports with cargoes of arms and munitions ot war. A general discussion followed his remarks. The Attorney-General bos decldod not to render an opinion In the case of the steamer Dauntless until ho can obtain additional facts relating to the application of her owners to cloar from Jacksonville with arms and ammunition. Under ordinary commercial conditions the ap plication would be granted without question, but the fact that tho Dauntless or any other ves sel would be obliged to clear for some Cuban port held by the Spanish puts a new phase on the matter. The cargo could not bo landed thero and tbe vessel would bo solzed. This would make it necessary for a vessel to attempt to land the cargo at some point along tbe coast, and In order to deliver the arms and ammunition to the Insurgents an urmed force would be necessary. The knowledge of this raises tho question whether the men necessary to carry out the plans made for a filibustering vessel would not constitute an armed expedition, a clear viola tion of the law. The Attorney-General will have to decide whether the forco likely to be taken on the Dauntless Is an armed expedition within the meaning of the law. Permission was given tho steamer Commodore to clear for a Cuban port with arms and munitions of war, but the vessel was wrocked before reaching the Cuban coast. To Itebulld Rlverhead Jail.

Pslssn Raving Vailed, n Reese Was slipped Abeut Hts Neck and Be Was Choked. nniDQBronT, Conn., March la Tip, tbe big elephant ot the Rarnum It llalloy show, and the most noted ot the herd, excepting Jumbo nnd Alice, Is dead. The old elephant was stronglod to death. Yesterday was the day -set for Tip's oxecutlon, and cyanldo of potassium waa se lected as tho means to bring about his end. J)ut Tip fooled the executioners. He swallowed "several capsules flllod with tho poison, but still lived. His death was nocossary. Last season on several occasions he bocamo unruly and unman ageable, and injured several keepers. When the poison fallod to do tho work tho question arose nstohow his death should bo brought about. There was talk ot trj tug anothor kind ot poison, but Keeper George Conklln said: "Hang It, an elephant has got four stomachs. When ho gets hold of any tiling like poison ho tuoks it Into one of Uiese side stomachs Just to try it. It makes no difference how much poison you give him; he will keep on chucking it Into that stomach; and oven it it eats that stom ach all up, he's got three good ones loft. I tell you, you can't poison him to death." Then it was suggested that Tip bo shot, To this tho keepers objectod. They said it the bullet did not kill him Instantly Tip might burst his bonds and mako a furious outbreak. Tho noise of rifles might also frighten the rest of tho herd to the stampeding point. Koepor Conklln then decldeu that ho and Bill Nowman would tako It upon themselves to despatch tho elephant. Extra chains were fastened about Tip's legs. Around his neck a three-Inch hsr. jer was looped In a sliding noose with a hangman's knot. To this was fastened a pull and tackle, and then one hundred men wero placed upon the line to pull. When all was ready Conklln gavo the word of command, and slowly the noose tightened as Tip's eyes began to bulge. Tighter and tlghtor the pressure becamo until Tip gave a shriek and began to struggle desperately to burst his bonds. Conklln yelled to his mon: "Pull, pull. Don't loss your heads. Pull for all you are worth." The noose became so tlifht that Tip could not cry out. Then Conklln shoutod to Tip: "Up. up." The elephant obeyed his keeper and lifted his trunk high In the nir. "Now, then," said Conklln to hts men, "pull all." Tin wound his trunk around tbe hawser nnd pulled against tho mon, but tho mechanical contrivance was more powerful than bruto strength. With a few moro pulls on the rope Tip was swaying on his feet. After a little he foil, but still the struggle for life was kept up. For thirteen minutes the battlo lasted, and then ho gave up. Immediately after.death the chains and ropes wero removed, nnd six big elephants which had beon Tip's partners nnd had performed with him In tho ring, dragged the body to tho dissecting room, whero Prof. Wallace and ten assistants wero waiting with tholr knives and saws to cut up the body. Tbe bonos are to be taken to New Aork to tio mounted for exhibition at the Museum ot Natural History. 8TRONO ON TUE TARIFF DILL.' lie iaye the Proposed Duty on Wool la Tee Itlsh Had Hoped for Lower Rates, In the course of a talk with Fire Commis sioner Sturgls and Subway Commissioner Hess yesterday morning, Mayor Strong said he was disappoint od by tho Dlngloy Tariff bill. Ha said that ho had hoped for a more conservative measure, with much lower rates in some sched ules and clnssos, and expressod tho belief that tho enactment ot a law with exceptionally high rates may make trouble for tho party in the next Presidential election. Tho Mayor Is a member ot the American Protoctlvo Tariff League, and nlwors has been known as an advocate ot high tariff. His talk about the Dlnglcy bill was there fore a surprise when It was published. To a reporter of The Sun he explained later: ' What 1 meant was that I fear that the tariff may again bemade a political Issue. I should like to see a tariff adopted that would remain prac tically unchanged for at loast twonty Hv o years. What I said was Inspired especially by tho ool schedule. Wool has been on tbe freo list. It nas Doen put. in ine lanrr scneauie at 11 cents and 12 cents a pound. I should havo preforrcd to sco It at 7 cents and 8 cents. I do not want to set my Judgment up against that of the men who drew tho bill, though. They should know better than I vvlmt Is needed. I did not Intend that my criticism should be captious. In fact it waa merely an expression ot my in dividual opinion aa to dunger which might possibly arise from the bill. After all, perbapB, It would bo better to havo tho next national campaign on the tariff issue than to have a repetition of tho free-silver fight. I do, however, wunt to see the conservative men who Joined us in the lust fight bound to us, and not driven away by radical legislation." Tho Mayor cltod only the wool schedule ns ob jectionable. Ho said he Is interested in two mills n hick make worsted yarn, but ho added that that fact did not lntluenco him In his criti cism. He said, too, he could sco how a reason ably high tariff on wool Is likely to help the West, and, in large measure, allay the agitation for a bad currency. PETTY TO BE INfESTIOATED. llot Mrs. Merrill's Charges Are .Tot Believed by Ills Official Superiors. Chief Conlln said yesterday that he was mak ing a personal Investigation of the charges made against Copt. Petty by Mrs. Elizabeth Merrill, who was accused in tho Jefferson Market Police Court on Monday ot conducting a disorderly houso on Greenwich avonuo.
