Many mora desertions of gold Democrats
from the shattered Shepardlte ranks were an
nounced yesterday, Francis II. Page ot the
Washington Trust Company, who was an ao
Ure worker In tho ranks of the Shepardlte or--sanitation,
came out in this statement:
"We do not want free alher If we can help it.
ico not see how the present managers of the
efloeratior partycAh' eontorid that" flier are
not a free silver party, when they nominate for
tho second office on. the ticket a man like El
Hot Danlorth. who Is a strong sltverite. They
cannot make such nominations as this and
still say they are not for silver. I think It will
take many years for the Demooratlo party In
the Eastern Mates to counteract the Impetus
which they gavctho free silver movement in
1J by accepting the Chicago platform and
, ticket. It is my opinion that they wiil have
rnuy years to repent their action at that time.
hae always voted the Demooratlo ticket
until the free sliver doctrine was accepted by
the party. I believe that the passage of free
silver legislation would he a calamity from
; which this country would recover only after
the most serious results to its commercial and
financial system. And then as to the local
issues in the campaign I must admit that I am
not a very ardent admirer of Mr. Dick Crokor.
t I shall take pleasure In voting for Col. Roose
velt and sincerely hope that he will win."
Hncent Looser, another former ardent fol
lower of Edward SI. Shepard. Raid:
I was always a Democrat until 1800. but as
long as the Democratic party clings to sliver
I I shall vote with tho party that I do not care
; lor. I hae spent much of: my tlmo and
money for the Democratic party, but I shall
psreafter decline to do so as long an free silver

Denis M. Hurler, the Republican candidate for

cnoiCBit's "VNPvyxsnBD crime" out.
The Baal Xlgnres Dispose of Ills Initnoer
Attack on Bootevalt.
Croker'i attaok on Roosovelt. based on tha
allegation that crime was not punlshedr when
Col. Roosevelt was President ot tho Police
Board, has ellolted a reply from Republican
Btato headquarters that disposes ot Mr. Cro
ker's newspaper statistics vary thoroughly.
The reply says:
It Is unnecessary to rotor hero to the great
list ot crimes whloh wont unpunished up to tho'
year 1895, nor to refer to the great aottvlty ot
the polloo In 1804. Who has forgotten tho
bribery and corruption which was tho prico of
unpunlshod crime, from homicide. to soliciting
on the streets, as disclosed by tho Lcxow com
mittee? Who has forgotten tho frantlo efforts
ot the police during the year 18Q4 to arrost
and send to State prison those whoso testimo
ny they feared, so that the total number ot ar
rests rose from 83,000 in 1803 to 101,000 In
1804, thus giving Indisputable testimony In
support ot thnevldonce given before the Lexow
oommlttee that crime was, going unpunished ?
When the present Board of City- Magistrates
first took their seats upon the bench the great
Intimacy existing between tho police detec
tives and the criminals arraigned was very
marked, as shown by the habit ot the officers
to engage counsel for tho 'prisoners, and very
often to fit testimony to exigencies of the case,
and in many cases allowing the complainants
to be spirited away; In most Instances charging
tho prisoners with being suspicious persons.
The Magistrates, were not long in changing,
this condition of affairs by Insisting that
prisoners should be charged with tho crimes ot
which they were suspected, and making It Im
possible for tho police to act between prisoners
andlawyors. This attitude of the Magistrates
soon made it unprofitable for tho police to
shield criminals, and this, together with
changes in tho detoctivo force, soon brought
about better results. The arrests for felonies
Increased to a remarkable extent, as shown by
tho subjoined table:

1802 ,4,034 3,185
Attention may bo cnllod to the large number
of discharges undor this head, therefore it Is
but fair to state that very olten the police re
port a case asafolony which, when sifted by
the court officials, is found to come under the
head of misdemeanors, and Is prosecuted ac
cordingly and not thrown out of court. In
showing this remarkablo Increase of arrests
forcrlmesoftheflrstmagnItude.lt Is but fair
to refer specifically to certain crimes enume
rated by Sir. Croker: First, the crime of homi
cide (commonly called murder). The arrests
under this head, as shown by the following
tablo. demonstrate, tho great nctlvtty ot the
pollco during 1805J lBOOand 1807, In arrest
ing murderers:
Ytar. Arraigwd. Yer, ArraignadATtar. Arraigned,

1890..,..,.... 01 184...,.U184 .
When referring to tha crlmoof 'burglary, Mrf"
Croker would' make it appear that no effort
was .made during these three, years to prevent
the commission of burglaries.
The following table, showing the numberof
arrests ot burglars during this time, challenges
contradiction and shows how far from the
truth Mr. Croker 's madness has carried him:

1881 862 720 1807 1,142 827
1802.: 840 67S
Owing to the fact that the records ot tho
Jollee courts are not compiled for tho year
808, it is impossible to mako a comparison
with previous years: but It Is fair to assumo
that, owing to the great activity of the police
during Sir. Roosovelt's and Sir. Moss's terms of
office, tho criminal classes must bo senlng
terms in State prison or scattered throughout
tho country, and a new crop has not ret had
time to develop under Tammany's fostering
enre. It Is a well-known fact that many ot tho
old-time criminals nrei again appearing on our
streets, mnklng ready for tha carnival of crime
which is sure to como should Mr. Van Wyck
bo elected Governor.
Ono ot the greatest evils this city suffered
under up to the year 1815 was the depreda
tions ot organized bands of toughs who wero
located on the east and west sides of the town.
During the year 1805 gangs of from ten to fif
teen wero dally arraigned In the courts and
sent to the Island for various terms, so that
before the advent of 1806 these gangs were
entirely broken up. and It became safe to ap
pear on the street In any part ot the city after
dark. Can the citizens of the east ana west
sides of town have forgotten theso facts 1 That
a clear idea may be had of the foregoing state
ment the following table ot arrests for disor
derly conduct Is attached, showing that in 1HH5
there were 50.000 convictions, while In 1800
they fell to 41,000. this decrease being entirely

Speolal attention Is called to the numberof
women arrested during this period. This table
shows that more streetwalkers wero arrested In
previous years: so Mr. Crokor 8 Imputation
that the polloo wore overzealous in making ar
rests under this head falls flat.
While thero was great activity in ferreting
out the greater crimes, minor offences were
not disregarded: tor owing to the Immunity
from punishment accorded those who paid
tribute to Tammany Hall, regard for law and
orderwosatalowobb. ....
That a clear and correct Idea may be had of
the beneficial results following an honest ad
ministration of the Pollco Department, tho
table showing tho total numberof arrests for
the last ton years Is here given :

This table shows that while ddrlng the
years 1805, 1800 and 1807 there was a largo
Increase In the total number ot arrests ovor
previous years, rot, owing to the Arm, and
Impartial meting .out of iustloe In 1800 and ,
18074 there was a largo, falling off In arrests '
when compared with the Increase in popula
tion during the same period.
Tho foregoing tables, taken from the reports
ot the Board of City Magistrates, show the
falsity of Mr. Grokera statements, and if he has
been misinformed regarding the administra
tion of the Police Department during the years
1805, 1800 and 1807, con reliance bo placed In
any of his effusions?

was taken from his home on Glaaser Parle
early this morning and locked up for safe

In order to save his life a piece of his skull was

tt was unexpected news to many who read
Tns Sun yestordny to learn that tho pull of
Thomas F, Orady. lawyer, 8tato Senator, end
legal adviser ot Boss Croker, had actually
failed to accomplish the registration ot oor
taln bonds Issued by towns In Queens and
Richmond before consolidation. It was also
surprising news to, many that tho story of this
mysterious transaction In bonds leaked out at
all, for It was oertalnly supposed by nil fa
miliar with such things that Tom Grady could
keep any legal transaction In which ho was In
volved quiet It ho wantod to, and also that his
monumental pull was sufficient fo secure vali
dation ot a handful ot bonds by the Comp
troller, who Is a Tammany officer. The nat
ural deduction from tho facts In hand Is that
they must have been a pretty bad lot ot bonds.
The pull ot the non. Sir. Grady was suffi
ciently strong to keen tho news that a suit had
been Instituted agalnat him and his law firm
from getting out until It was all over, as far
as tho courts wero conoorned, having been
settled outside. It wan Supremo Court Jus
tice Truax, who. In finishing up some uncom
pleted business, lot the cat out of tho bag by
granting a motion made by tho defendants
woeks ago and before the caso was settled.
The papers had never been Indorsed "discon
tinued" or "settlod," nnd so Justice Truax
thought the case was still on. By granting the
motion he let out tha oase that had been so
carefully guarded. Great was the Indignation
In 'Sir. Grady's law office yesterday over Jus
tice Truax's error. A member ot the Arm
"Justice Truax had no right to do this thing.
Tho caso was settled weoks ago and should
not have been raked ,ud ntra'n. It was out
rageous to make the private relations betwoon
counoel and clients consplouous in this way.
especially attor nn amicable agreement had
been reached."
All ot which shows how exceeding great was
tho "value ot secrecy In this cue. especially at
this time. Briefly the facts In the oase, as.lt
appeared In court, are as follows:
Forster A Spiers, nttornoys ot 52 Wall street,
representing the firm of Leland, Towle A Co..
brought an action against the law firm of
Grady. Bmlth & Crandall to reoover $10,000
whloh nt the time was locked up lna vault of
the National Safe Deposit Company. It
seemed that Leland. Towle A Co. had em
ployed Bonator Grady's Arm to secure thn
registration of n lot of old Richmond and
Queens county bonds in the Comptroller's
office. Tho Inw provides that all stocks or
bonds Issued by any nt tho municipal orpub
lio corporations which wore included In ;tho
consolidation, and for the payment of the prin
cipal and interest ot which the city of New
York is liable, may bo recistored by the own
ers in the Comptroller's office. It meant a
wholo lot of money for the owners of the bonds
Intrusted to Tom Grndy to got .them regis
tered, for that meant that the city of New lork
shouldered tho liability under the bonds.
Tho S10.000 in question was to bo Tom
Grady's fe if he succeeded ln pushing tho
bonds through, and tho way It was put up In
dicates possibly a little distrust on both sides.
Tho cash was put In a safe deposit vuult. tho
door of which hod two looks. It took two keys
to get at the 'money and while Leland. Towle
tt Co.; held on to one key.' a cleric In Grady's
office was Intrusted with tho other. When
thn bonds wero safely registered Leland. Towlo
& Co. were to turn over the key in their pos
session to Grady's clerk, who was to take pos
session ot tho cash on behalf ot his employer.
It is obvious why Grudy got this lucrative
job. It was pretty well understood that it any
lawyor In town could get theso bonds regis
tered it was tho sllver-t3iigued orator ot Tam
many Hall.
But somehow the persuasive powers of the
Kilter Tonguo failed to have tho proper effect.
Some of the bonds were registered, how many
does not appear, but it Is said that It was a
very small pcrcentaco of them. At any rato.
Leland. Towle t Co. were not satisfied, and re
fused to give up their key to the safe deposit
vault. Grady deellned-to give up his key. and
there was a deadlock. Then Leland, Towle &
Co. began a suit against Grady & Co., and,
Grady.A- Co. Spedlly agreed to settle.
Forster .t Spiers declined again yesterday to
talk, about the case, on the ground that It was
a private matter and '.'of no publlo interest.'
Senator Grady was not- to bo found, but a
member ot his firm, who was included as a de
fendant In.' the action by Leland. Towlo Co..
"To say that there was anything mysterious
In this matter Is ridiculous. We have de
clined to talk about the matter out of regard
for ourTcllents. We have no right to talk of the
private business of those who employ us. we
undertook to register certain bonds for a client.
Ho was to pay us a feo of $10,000 If wo suc
ceeded In registering tho bonds. Wo suc
ceeded In having some of the bonds regis
tered and failed with others. The only ques
tion that arose between us and our client w as
what part of tho $10,000 foe we were entitled
to for our work. They eaw fit to sue us before
we reached an agreement. Whllo the action
was pending the matter was settled out of
court. Justice Truax had no right to bring
the matter up again."
1 roni several sources the following story of
tho bond deal was secured: After the people
of Now York city and the outlying districts had
voted In favor of consolidation almost all lot
tho small villages and towns began rushing
into debt In order to raise money for publlo
improvements. Their notion was that the new
city would have to take up the bonds, and
that tho share ot them they would hate to pay
would be very small. Thero was considerable
question as to the legality of these bond issuos.
Nevertheless, they were snapped up, together
with hundreds ot other town and lyugo nonds
of the territory about to be consolidated that
had been a drug on the market for a lone time.
A syndicate made un of the holders of these
bends was formed, and Leland. Towlo k Co,
represented the syntUcate. A number ot
bankers and brokers who held similar bonds
were Invited to Join tho syndicate, but de
clined, and several ot these men who were seen
yesterday said that they were glad of it, bo
cause they had taken their bonds to the Comp
troller's office and had thm registered with
out question. Thl may be accounted for by a
difference In quality between their bonds and
tho bonds Grady was employed to champion.
The holders ot the syndicate bonds were as
sessed 1 per cent, of their holdings for counsel
fee, and the total assessment reached 110.000.
That Is, $1,000,000 worth (face value) of bonds
were to be regtsteredjand the Hon. Tom Grady
was to engineer the lob.
Why It didn't go through the Comptroller,
Benhtor Grady or the syndicate could probably
explain, but they won't. It was admitted yes
terday that most of the bonds were bonds Is
sued after the people had voted In favor of con
solidation, and their legality may have been
questioned. '
There may he something ret In that story
that Croker will turn the silver-tongued orator
down after election. Color and Croker also. It
Is reported, are bad friends.

The Chamber of Commerce adopted unani
mously yesterday theso resolutions:
Whereat, In the opinion ot tho Chamber of
Commerce a pure, able and Independent
judiciary Is the bulwark ot social and family
life and the safeguard of, the liberties, the
rights, tho property and the Institutions of a
free people, and without suoh a judlolary gov
ernment "ot the people, by the people and for
the people" will not long continue: and.
Whereas. In tho judgment ot this chamber
any man who is willing to commit a seotlon of
his conscience to a political chief Is -utterlr un
worthr to occupy a judicial position : and
Whereat, The slightest suspicion or belief
that a Judge can be swayed or Influenced by
political considerations Is an obstruction to the
free employment of capital and a menace to
the commercial and industrial prosperity ot
any city or State, and Inevitably tends to con
tract the employment ot labor as well as capi
tal and
Wtitrtat. The payment ofpolltlcal assess
ments. either directly or Indirectly, or under
the guise of party contributions, on the part ot
a candidate for judicial office should forever
disqualify such candidate from holding office,
and should.be otherwise appropriately pun
ished l therefore be. it
Jtaohfd. That the Chamber of Commerce
desires, without regard to political affiliation or

ated In the foregoing as of vast Importance to

Mrs. Cornelia S. Robinson presided, and as the

"And t don't wonder." she added In an un

Miss Helen Yarlck Boswill had been ap

but she was so busy with campaign work on

Sir. Steele denounced Tammany In scathing

"But If wo oleot Roosevelt." ho continued. "It

Any one desirous of learning the attitude of
the present State administration on tho ques
tion ot good roads should read over the Hlgble
Armstrong Good Roads bill, which became a
law on March 24 last, having been passed by
the'Ropubltcan Legislature and signed by tho
Republican Governor. TheLenguo of Ameri
can Wheelmen. Now York Stato Division, has
recognlzod the liberality of this act, and has
Issued a little pamphlet containing n copy of It
ns well as explanations ot Its provisions, tho
methods to bo followed to secure Improved
highways and thecost of such Improvements to
certain towns on the dollar of assessed valua
tion. Tho pamphlet deals particularly with
Monroe county, and In that county the actuab
cost ot improvement to be borne by taxpayers
in tho town In which it is undertaken varies
from only one-fifth to one-third of tho entire
amount expended.
Tho act itself Is more liberal than similar
legislation in tho Stato of New Jersey, whloh
has long boon regarded as a model. The move
ment, which culminated in the passage ot the
Higbie-Armstrong bill, was carrlod on by tho
League of American Wheelmen, good roads
associations, farmers' associations, horsemen,
and many others.
The law. provides that tho Board of Super
visors In any. county of the, Stato may. at any
time, or must..ou presentation ot a petition
from owners .along any publlo highway not
within a city or incorporated-vlllage. atatlng
that they desire the Improvement ot that high
way, pass a resolution that publlo interest de
mandAtho improvement of the highway. Acopx.
of tills resolution must bo sent to the State En-
filneerwlthin ten days. That offiolal must exam
no the highway and report on Its importance,
certifying his reasons It he does not approve
the Improvement. If he approves It. he must
prepare plans for tho most adlsablo work to
be dono and have made an estimate ot.lts cost,
whloh. with his plans and approval, are sub
mitted to tho Board ot Supervisors. If the
Board of Supervisors vote to carry out tho im-
firovemont.tho Engineer advertises for bids on
ho contract, which will bo awarded only on
bond ot Indemnity against any damages suf
fered or claimed until the completed highway
shall have boon accepted by tho State.
Tho cost of such Improvement. It is provided,
shall be paid one-half by tho State Treasurer
from speciflo appropriations for tho purpose
and onn-half by the county Treasurer. The last
ono-half shall bo apportioned aftorwnrd so
that 35 per cent, of the entire cost ot tho im
provement shall bo a county chargo and tho
other 15 percent, shall be paid by the town in
which the highway Is It tho improvement was
undertaken without any petition, or. if thero
was n petition, thn 15 per cent, of tho entire
cost shall be apportioned among the property
owners benefited by tho improvement.
Whonever it seems advisable to the State
Engineer that n section ot highway not over
one mile In length whloh connects highways al
ready improved under this act should be im
g roved, he may serve notice ot the fact on the
oard of Supervisors, who must arrange for
the improvement of that section.

There was a rousing Republican meeting ot
foreign-born Amorlcans In tho Thalia Theatre;
on tho'Bowerr. last night. The old placo was.
packed from the stage to tho lobby with Ho-'
brows, Italians, and Germans, who applauded
enthusiastically ovory mention ot tho name of
Theodore Boosovolt and' hissed with equal
vehemence tho name ot Croker. The meeting
was one of those. arrangod by tho Republican
Club and was a success far beyond expecta
tions, for tho Thalia Is In a Tammany strong
hold. .
Ex-Judgo Slyor S. Isaacs presided at tho
meotlng, which was preceded by a concert by
the principals arid chorus of the opera com
pany that Is playing an engagomont at tho
theatre. Mr.' Isaacs began his opening sooech
with the remark: "Wo must olect Thoodoro
Roosevelt." Immediately from all sides of the
house camo cries ot "Wo will) wowllll" .
Sir. Isaacs called attention to tho necessity of
electing the Bepublican judlolary candidates
In order to havo an upright and fearless bench,
and ot electing Republican Congressmen, Bon
ators and Assemblymen, so that tho Btato can
not bo misrepresented any longer at Wash

"Wo are for Roosevelt because of his charac

In every placo. The right place just now is

Frank Moss, who has boen lambasting Rlah

went for him again, and at tho first mention of
htsnamo a man In the gallery called out in
Gorman. " Wo ought to have hanged that fel
low years ago." whoroat another man called
for hisses and groans for Croker. which wero
given with a will. Mr1. Moss said In part:
" Mr. Crokor has been talking again, and
again wo offer thnnl. It is evident that ho is
rattled. 1 want to ask the gentlemen present
if they remember tho troublous times of the
past, when Mr. Croker could not bo Induced to
speak. When corrupt Tammany election of
ficials and repeaters wore being Indicted nnd
prosecuted and sent to jail in lbt)3 where was
Sir. Croker and where frero tho jrther mighty

his old' haunts? Homo, poor (dupes actually
went to Stato prison for, the fraudulent work
thatthey did, relying upon v tho protection ot
thoso for whom they did it; buttneyand their,
families had to bear tha penalty alone.
"What becamtj of Sir. Croker when tho
Lexow investigation began to get hot? Did ho
not resign hla leadership In the spring of 1804.
saying that he had left polities forever, and did
he not steal o(t. almost Incognito. leaving his
harried associates to their own devices? Who
will forgot the bitter anguish among tho lead
ers when they heard the surprising news of
tholr chieftain's departure, or the loud cries
that went across the ocean for his return? Tho
urgency of his friends compollcd his return
during a long recess ot the committee, and
after testimony had been given of tho dollvory
of chocks drawn to his order and Indorsed by
hlra-the checks themsolvos being produced
before tho committee and reproduced in
tho newspapers. Even when ho was politely
offered theprUllego ot appearing before the
comtnltteu ho remained sllont and let those
suffer who had stood by him in hlj organiza
tion." Mr, Moss next asked whore the men who had
remained true to Tammany Hall and those
who had suffered by serving, it were now.
whoreat there wero ories of "They're nil
turned down." Tho speaker said there was a
f treat revolt growing In Tammany Hall. "Ah I"
le said, "this great leader has been made a
fool by Ids pride."
Hneaklng ot tha Pollco Department, Mr. Moss
"Officers tell mo that they are compelled to
keep their eyes shut and their oars closed by
the fear of exile to the remote bounds of
Greater Now York. Only a few days ago Officer
SIcUugh was transforrod'to fcStaten island for

"How many jays are plucked In the green
goods games and are frightened away and
never heard of again? How many soldiers,
aallors and marines are despoiled ot their pay
In Bowery dives and are nererheard of as com
plainants? Only a fow nights ago a woman ran
out ot a Bowery resort pursued by a man.
They were stopped by a policeman, to whomltho
man mado a complaint of robbery. Tho woman
admitted it and returnod the money and was
allowed to gp freo. A gentleman asked thn
officer why he lot such a good case go. 'Good
caso,' said the officer: ' you don't know what n
SoodcaHels. If I arrested anybody from Mc

Bay or God knows where,'

they are issues that, Mr. Croker doesn't like.
