They think It ,; j. ',C qulto possible that Sugden knows something :, 't !2 about the authorship of the letters, but they doubt that the mystery will ever be cleared up ? i through him. f r Lawyer Noah protested against tho charge of burglary made against Sudden. Ho said that , J S the charpo should be larceny, If anything. Sua- j ; den did not break Into Ihinkor Wilson's house. i : he said, but walked In and out again without In- I f terfcrcnoe, although his presence thero was X known. Dotcctlvo Flay testified that Sugden i had confessed tho robbery to him, and had said v ' that ho entered tho house by lifting the latch i of the basement door.

"A daughters llHiire. whoso name is also Albert j ;. fr Bugden. to represent hlminlf to tho prisoner as I a relative and extort a lotifosslon from him. It -J was a marvellous talo of heady detective wort, .' ; g and made Flay out R sleuth ot the first wator. , S As n matter of fact, Sugden walked right Into l A the hands of the polite.

Williams had just ' i J- been releascil from jail, and he and dugden be- k I yi came qulto friendly. Sugden dually told WII- V A Hams that ho had a lot of valuable Jewelry In a !' , a safe deposit vault In Jersey City, and wanted to . $ know if Williams could tell htm a safe man to !' ;? sell It to. About this time Detective Flay was -,: put on the case, lie examined all of the ser- '. i vants In the Wilson house, and. as Sugden had . $ so recently left the tmnker's employ, cross-ques-' - t? tloned him, too. Sugden, with the rest of the a ir servants, was exonerated. ' ? '- In the meantime Williams hod confided what y 'i Sugden had told him to Lawyer Noah. Mr. iK? Noah Immediately jumped to the conclusion that V, the Joweld were thoso that had been stolen from ' J, ff Mr. Wilson, and rvaolvcd to do what he could to t ? y have them restored to thelrowner. Attbesamo "Ei time he wanted to protect Sugden; so he went '; iy,, down and told Mr. Klcoll what he had learned, rV: without giving Snellen's name. Mr. Nleoll sug- Is a tested thai Williams go ahead and work ' h. Sugden until bo found out just whece I n the jewels were. Then he was to t get them, and they were to be re- jT turned to Mr. Wilson. Williams was to ; k-et a reward for his work, and Sugden was to !; io protected from arrest. In order to facilitate this. Williams told a private detect! vo employed i. by Mr. Nleoll that Sugden was the man who 1-s '" had the Jewels. This detective told Detective It Flay, who had been floundering around on a K doren hopeless clues, and Floy started aftor KUU Sugden. Meanwhile. Sugden found out what Ef had been going on, and, on tho ndvlce of Mr. I if Noah, wont to Police Headquarters and talked la to Inspector O'Brien. It was agreed that he j I J would not be prosecuted if he gave up the i Jft Jewels, so ho told where they would be found. ,' 'tt when the polk-o got the Jewels they put Sugden U In n cell. '- V?

At the meeting of the Dock Hoard yesterday Commlxslonor Klnsteln brought up the subject of the arrest by Health Inspector Betz of Frank Maeder, of Rich It Macder. to whom the board cranlcd the permit for tho sale ot nillkon the Third strcot recreation pier, on a charge of soil ing watered milk. Ho had read a letter from Rich & Macder, In which they ssld: "We beg to call your attention to the fact that ono of tho Health Department Inspectors, a Mr. Ilctr., has brought charges against us for telling adulterated milk on tho Fast Third -truct pier. This Infamous llo, without the sllRhtcst foundation of truth. Is apparently the outcomoof the light that has been made against us for not allowing Mr. Nathan Straus to sell milk nt our stands, for which ho offered remu neration. Wo feel that our reputation and stand ing In our own business Is such that It loaves us iiIkjvo the shadow of suspicion, and the milk dealers from w bom wo purchase our milk stip plv thousands of others In this city. The mat ter has gono so far that it Is Injuring us, not alona in a business way, but It Is giving us per sonal troublo and heavy expenso, and Is, In a way, nothing mora or less than defamation of character. Wo aro ready to produce for you bills from tho New York Sterllizod Milk Com pany, also tho Beakcs Company, showing our purchases, and both of these concerns aro more than anxious to havo the Health Board make au examination ot their products. We ask you to take immediate action in thin matter, so that we cjin prepare statements that will exonerate us from this (barge, and wo would suggest that tho Health Hoard Bond an inspector every day to tho pier." Commissioner Einstein characterirod the ar rest as an Infamous piece of work. Mr. Straus, he raid, was chagrined that the Dock Board had not allowed him to establish one ot his sterilized milk stnttons on the pier. He culled attentlou to an Interview with Mr. Straus, printed on Aug. 0, In uhlch ho was reported as saying that the Dock Board was killing off ba bies and Increasing tho denth rate by not giving tho pcoplo a cbanco to drink sterilized milk, and all this wns caused by the splto ot a Commis sioner tow aril Mr. Straus. " It Is all an Infamous llo," said Commissioner Klnsteln. " I ropcat. an Infamous He from be ginning to end. Wo bne. in proof of this, tho btntemont of the Health liopartment that tho niortallt rate among infanta and udults was never so low as at present. Furthor than that, within tho last few days we havo sent communi cations to tho nowapiiper which published tho interview and to Mr. Straus, asking the former to givo tho uamo of tho Commissioner who, through spite toward Mr. Slraus, U causing tho death ot babies, and asking Mr. Straus if the Interview was authentic. Those letters were sent ten days ago. From the newspaper we have received no reply. From Mr. Straus we have just received a letter which totally Ignores the charges made against us by him, and re prats his request for the privilege of selling sterilized milk on the pier. I simply want to havo theso remarks put In tho record, calling attention to the g-rnvo nature of tho charges, whltii. In my Judgment, are Infamous ana be neath contempt." After the meeting Mr. Einstein further freed his mind, saying: " As to Mr. Straus's charges thstwe are kill ing off babies by not allowing him to sell milk there, why the menwho conduct the privilege sell sterilized milk at acent a glass, give a larger 5 lass than Straus does and make a good profit, his arrest Is mean, petty spite work on the part of Straus," Chief Engineer Greene reported adversely on the application of Contractor iSoagrlst for an ex tension of tlmo In which to remove the build ings to make room for the new piers at West Eleventh street. President O'Brien wanted to have tho report adoptod, but Commissioner Einstein hod it laid on the table. There was no crap. ADVOCATES OF TESTPSItASOB. Ttaey Protest Against tbo Eatabllibmeat or at tlnni shop on Bills lstao.0. BAltATOQA, Aug. 19. Nearly the whole of to day's session of the National Advocates of Tem perance was devoted to the consideration of a long set of resolutions, constituting their plat form, which were finally adopted unanimously. The organization rejoices In the advancement of temperance during the past fifty years. It la gratified in having secured by law In all States except three scientific temperance education In the schools. It urges that effort be made to prevent the uso of Intoxicating liquors on all social occasions, appeals to leaders of fashion to discountenance tempting youths by the use of wlno at parties and dinners, and asks ladles to uso their Influence against the growing use of liquors by some of their sex. Young men are requested not to invito friends to drink. The Church Is urged to bo fearless In temperance re form. It Is requested that the third Sunday ot October bo observed as temperance Sunday. The resolutions proceed to denounce the liquor tralMc as follows: "Wo ore agreed that to license the liquor traffic, whether high or low, works only evil; that any scheme by which good men and Church people are to be pressed into supervising the sale of liquor Is a delusion and a snare; that pro hibition. State and national, legislative and constitutional. Is the Ideal; that the saloon power Is the deadly foe of good order, and, be cause of Its organized attitude In politics, needs to be met by organization in full energy; that only men opposed to liquor should be elected to ofllce. ana that political parlies which sustain the liquor tralllc are not to be supported." This reference to parties aroused heated de bate. Among the speakers were Dr. Corsy of Washington, Dr. Kynette of New Jersey, the Hon. 8. D. Hastings of Wisconsin, and Drs. Pout son und Robbins of New York city. The organization further urges that a com bined ellort be made this fall In the United States to secure temperance pledges from all the children of the land. The advocates rejoice in the growlnir sentiment In the medical pro fession that alcobollo stimulants are unneces sary. They denounce as deceiving and dan gerouB tee great number of patent medicines composed of alcoholic stimulants, and ask the medical fraternity to expose such compounds. They ask Congress to secure the abolition ot the liquor internal revenue system, to prohibit tho trafflo In the District ot Columbia, and to all persons and In all places under national Jurisdiction. They protest against the establishment ot a rum shop on Ellis Island, and urge Congress to forbid all truffle in liquors between this and foreign lands. The request that Congress appoint a commission of Inquiry In regard to the Influence of Intoxicants Is re newed. On the request of Frsnces Willard the follow ing fraternal delegates were chosen to attend the meetings of the National W. C. T. U. at Buf falo and the World's W. O. T. U. at Toronto: The Hon. B. D.

The stock market continues comparatively dull and Irregular. Tho reactionary element proceeds with caution and bases Its operations entirely upon reported or prospective damage to the crops, particularly corn. Higher prices for staple cereals are superficial corrobora tion of the views held or disseminated by the balls on wheat and the bears on stocks. Tho accuracy of those views Is Impaired by the ex traordinary preparations that the railroads are making to move the maturing crops. According to all accounts the spring wheat crop Is virtu ally secured, and. should the yield bo less than estimated, the amount required for export Is so great that the prices obtained will more than offset a smaller supply than had been expected. Bo far as corn is concerned. It should be remem bored that a large part of last jour's crop has not yet been marketed, henco a shortage this year, which is by no means cortnln, will bring the remainder of tho old crop to market, as well as the surplus produced this year, at higher prices than prevailed twolve months ago. The fact should not be overlooked that Europo bas begun to consume American corn, hence If wheat rises to prices that foreign consumers may regard as extravagant or prohibitory thoy will follow the precedent of last year and Import large quantities of corn. The price of corn bas already begun to reflect this possibility, and should the surplus of last year's crop begin to move toward the seaboard thecarryingcapaclty of the Granger trunk Hues will be severely taxed. Distressing reports regarding the crops were again to-day the stock in trado of the profes sional eloment, which was unanimously bent upon bringing about n further reaction In prices. It is significant that In splto of vigorous efforts to bold the markot In check, tho majority of ths list was strong until shortlr before the close, when u raid upon values, presuma bly for effect upon London, wiped out In many cotes the Improvement that took place In the middle ot the day. London, by the way, did very little In this market, although the speculation ot that centre was adversely affected by the political troubles in India and fears of an active money market. As fore shadowed in this column this morning, the firmness of the sterling exebango markot here prevontod an advance In tho Bank of England's minimum rate of discount to day. Cable advices Indicate thtit tho bank la making strenuous efforts to postpone exports of specie and to throw tbo first burdonof them, when made, upon the Conti nent. Railway gross earnings for the sec ond week in August, that were reported to-day, show gratifying increases over last year. The most lmportnnl returns wore those of Chesapeake and Ohio, the Chi cago Groat Western, tho toutsvlllo ond Nashville and tho Southern Railway compa nies. Other favorubla developments wore the report of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company forks fUcal jear, published this morning; tho foreshadowing of an excollent traffic statomont by the Heading Company for July, and unofl clal advices as to the prosent earnings of the Granger trunk linos. 8ugar Refining made a new record to-day, sell ing at ISO. Missouri I'actflo was exceptionally strong and so woronll of tho anthracite coal stocks, particularly Reading securities. The most trustworthy Information regarding tho anthyaclto coal trade la that It Is In excellent condition and Is constantly Improving, Resides, general business in Pennsylvania, which has been slow to participate In tlio re vival of activity, owing to the losses sustained In iron and other Industries. Is now beginning to recover, nnd In consequenco lncreasod earnings are expected from all tbo rallronds operating In that State. It Is lonrnod that tbo Pennsylvania Railroad Is preparing to uso every one of Its cars that can bo made available by reasonable ex pcndlturcsfor repairs. In spite of the final ro aotlon In prices, material not advance worn re corded for Rrooklyn Rapid Transit, Metropoli tan Traction. Consolidated (las, Reading aocu rftles, St, Joe nnd Urniul Ulaiid Issues, and Chicago and Eastern Illinois.
