WKUion.aiid the Comptroller thinks that there
is little .louU of lts;adoptlon by tho Lecislu

"There Is no need for the city to lose the

He Sny. n, Companion Killed llpn.lry
Wise I. tlolns; tn Try to from It.
Edward S. Wise, tho pool player who was
convicted on March 1(1 of murder In the first
decree for killing Charles F. llen.ley, was sen
tenced yesterday by Justice Williams in the
criminal branch of tho Supremo Court to die
during the week beginning May -". After
ward Wise was taken to Slug Blng Prison.
Ilefore going away Who declared that ho
hnd not committed the murdor. He said that
he was willing to go to prison to shield the
man who had committed tlio murier. but that
he would not die for him. He added that ho
had made u confession to District Attorney
Gardiner and Chief Detectlve'McClusky tell
ing who the guilty person Is.
"When a man stands In the shadow of death."
ho said. "It Is time to get out of that shadow it
It Is pos.lble. In my case I kept nulct during
my trial simply for tho purpose of shielding a
companion. Now that 1 havolbeen sentenced
to die. I don't think '.lint any unu will find fault
wltn me for breaking the promise I made t.t
that companion by telling all 1 know nbout tho
crime. Immediately after my conviction I
informed the authorities all nbout tho case. I
told them what netion to take in getting at
the real murderer. Slnco then the detec
tives have been at work, and thoy lire now sat
isfied that I have told them tho truth.
"With several companions, In Boston, I
came down to New York to see n prizellght at
tho Lenox Athletic Club. I made heavy nets
upon the light and lot. Then I got in wllh
certain people who wore to put mo in the wn
of making some money. The result was that
they put mo in jail under sentence of death.
I have been requested by the authorities not
to make public the name of the man who com
mitted the crime. Thoy will put him on trial
and will provo his guilt. In tho meantime an
effort will bo made to get a now trial for mo."
District Attorney Oardlner refused to discuss
tho caso yesterday fur'.her than to say that tho
authorities believed Wise had a companion with
hlra who either was tho principal In the com
mission of the crime or who assisted Wise in
committing it.
Charles F. Heasley. a call driver, was mur
dered and robbed in West Twentv-nlnth street
on Nov. 1. lie wa attacked oy two men, one
of whom ran away after Heasley fell. The
other bent over the fallen ranu as If searching
his pockets. Then he, too. run. but was cap
tured. The prisoner was Wise.
Arguments For nn.l Against the Motion to
III. miss It llenr.l Yestprdny.
Bartow 8. Weeks and George Clordon Battle,
counsel for Uoland 11. Mollneux. argued a mo
tion In tho criminal branch of tho Supreme
Court yesterday for the dismissal of the In
dictment against Mollneux for the murder of
Mrs. Kathcrlne J. Adams. Mr. Weeks said
that tho motion was "upon the ground that the
Brand Jury received other than legal evidence
and upon the further giound that the indict
ment was found by the Grand Jury without
.ufQclout legal evidence."
The evidence as to motive, counsel said, wa
flimsy and Inadequate, because the proof
of the motive rested entirely on Harry Cornish,
and Cornish had testified to numberless con
clusions as to Mollneux's hatred of him. The
nly fact upon which Cornish based these con
clusions, counsel maintained, was a trivial
difference a. to club management which oc
curred a year beforo tho murder. Mr. Weeks
further maintained that the only evidence In
any wav tending to connect the defendant with
the administration of the lolson was the testi
mony of handwriting experts, and he quoted
various authorities tn show that yerv slight
value was given by he courts to tho testimony
of such experts, even when testifying in oj.en
court and subjected to cross-examination. In
the case at bar. counsel said, the experts had
not been eross-oxamlned. Again, the evi
dence in the cato was wholly circumstantial
and secondary In Its character, he said.
As to the testimony of the defendant before
the Coroner being put In evidence bufore the
Grand Jurv. counsel maintained that while
tho transcripts of it might bo correct, still
there was not tho slightest Indication that tho
testimony was either read or marked In evi
dence. For that reason he proceeded on the
assumption that this testimony was not In evi
dence 'jefore the Grand Jury..
District Attorney Gurdlner and his assistant,
Osborne, made arguments la rpposition to .lis.
missing the Indictment. Justice Williams
said that ha would withhold decision to give the
District Attorney aa opportunity to submit a
lie I. to Die In the Week Ilpslnnlnc Mny

Samuel J. Kennedy, who at 'J::i."t o'clock yes
terday morning was found guilty of murdering
Dolly Reynolds In the Grand Hotel last
August, was taken over tho Bridge of Sighs
from the Tombs soon after 'J o'clock yesterday
afternoon, and was sentenced to death by Jus
tice Williams. His face wasallttlo paler than
it had been while he sat listening to the evi
dence piled up against him, but otherwise, ho
had the appearanco of a well-dressed business
man to whom fortune had been generous. Ho
walked with a quick step, carrying himself
very erect as he stepped uptothe bar.
Asked whether ho! had anything to say for
himself, Konnedy said: "Only that I think I
have been convicted unjustly on evldonco that
was socured from the police authorities, who
to my certain knowledge havo perjured them
selves. I declare now. beforo your Honor, that
I am ontlroly innocent of thl- charge, just as
innocent ns I stand hero ut this moment as you
are. My conscience is perfectly clear, and 1
havo nothing to reproach myself for in rospeef
to the Dolly Iteynolds murder. I have nothing
further to say."
Justice Williams mado no reply. Ho sen

iet. n I'rlTHte Hearing In Court nn.l (Inc.
Free .tllstnkp Mnilp, Magistrate Hnjn.
On the complaint of the ltev. Madison C.
I'eters of tho Dloomtng.lnle Reformed Church
a well-dressed womun about 40 years old and a
man nbout ten years her junior wero arrested
at tho corner of the Boulevard and Hoventy
first street on Thursday nlcht for acting in a
.disorderly manner. The woman was dancing
with skirts gathered about her knoes to the
cdlllciitlon of a large crowd which had gath
ered around, l'olicoman Anthony Newman ot
tho West Sixty-eighth street, station, who wit
nessed the frolic of tho couple, was loath to in
terfere, evon when Mr. I'eters requested him
to, but finally took tho man nnd woman In ens
tody and lodged a complaint against them at
the station.
The woman described herself as Mrs, N.lllo
I.ockwnod of 1HS West Eighty-ninth street,
while the miin'snld ho was Kruest Hternlmm of
74 Ka.t Sixteenth street. The woman was IkjIs
terous nnd nolsy.Bhe made considerable trouble
for rollcoman Newman when ho arrested her.
and at tho station houso made threats against
everybody, declaring that she was a cousin of
ltlchard Croker and that she would turn all
the powerof tho Democratic Clublagalnst those
who had Interfered with her.
When she became quieter Mr. I'eters, who
hud accompanied her, said that ho was sorry
far hoi predicament nnd that if she would go
straight home he would ball her out. Tho
woman agreed to this, nnd Mr. Fetors went on
her bond for $,1tX). The woman. In turn,
j.ledgod $'J,000 worth of personal property as
bail for her companion, nnd both wero ro
leased. That ended tho matter so far as the
station house was concerned. Little attention
was paid by the Sergeant at the desk and tho
policeman to tho woman's claim that Bits vtas
a cousin of Mr. Croker. as "bluffs" of this kind
ato made by three out of lite of tho woman
prisoners brought in there.
The proceedings In tho West Fifty-fourth
Street Court yesterday morning, however,
seemed to Indicate that some kind of iulliienco
was at work In favor of tho prisoners. Hero is
what occurred. When Magistrate Fool got
to court ho was met by Catt. Moynihau of the
West Sixty-eighth street station, who no,
pearod somewhat excited. There was a con
sultation, and then tho Magistrate, tho Cap
tain. Follcomnn Newman and the two prison
ers went into the Magistrate's private room.
Follceman Newman had previously made a
complaint against the prisoners, charging
them with dnnclug in the streeCand causing
a crowd to collo 't. Just whut went on in tho
Magistrate's room Is not known, but lu a few
minutes the prisoners came out and went away.
Thev hnd evidently been discharged.
Capt. Moynihan. when questioned, said that
the'woman was a servant girl who had made a
fuss on tho street nnd had been arrested.
"A trivial, unimportant case," was hiseom
ment. "An outrageous arrest br ono of Cant.
Moynlhan's men," said Magistrate Fool, "but
probably due to a mistake. That's nil I can
say about it."
Later in tho day the Magistrate was asked
about the case again. This time he said that
tho man and woman had not been arrested.
The papers in the case were shown to him. and
he said;
"Why, I hadn't even seen these before.
Well, any way. the case will come up again on
Then the Magistrate's attention was called
tothefacttlmt underneath this Indorsement on
the papers. "Adjourned untlLAprll ;i." was
written. "Discharged. '
"Well, well, how strange," said Mr. FooL
"Tho papers aiusQiate been marked this way
bv mistake."
Then ho questioned the clerks nbout the mat
ter, but all denied writing!" tilscharged" on the
papers. He finally snid that he'd "see about
the matter" and let it go at that.
At the address given by the woman a Mrs.
Mary Loekwood. wlfo of Frederick l.oekwood,
a wine agent, was found. She looked strange
ly like tho woman who had been in court, but
denied emphatically that she was the same wo
man She.suggpsted soelur some Loekwoods
at -'M West Llghty-flftli street. This turned
out to be the homo o' .Mrs. James Lockwocd.
the mother of Frederick Ixickwood. She
knew nothing about the caso. but said that tho
Mrs. Marv Ix-kwixxl at 1HM West Elghty-dluth
street was hor daughter-in-law. When tho
reporter luturned to the Llghty-nlnth street
house Mrs. Loekwood refused to be seen.
It was impossible to learn yesterday whether
or not Mrs. Loekwood. Jr.. is really related to
llichnrd' Croker. A friend of his said:
"Don't bother Croker about such a matter.
It's jut a fake. Every woman that gets in
tiouble nowadays claims exemption from pun
ishment on the score of nolltcnl Itilluence. ami
a hundred relatlvos of Mr. Croker. that lie
noi or heard of before, have turned uji in this
wav in ii month.''
Tho ltev. Madison C. I'eters was not In court
veslordny morning, but was seen at his home.
He said about the arrosts-
"It was about l'Ji.'lo o'clock this morning
when I left the Colonial Club to go home. Just
one block belewtlieo'ub.nt Sevonly-llrst street,
and the lioulovard, I saw this Mrs. Loekwood
niidSternhaiu.whois, I believe, nn Englishman.
Thoy wero arguing as to whether they should
take an uptown or a downtown car Suddenly
the woman raised her skirts aud began to
dance and sing in the middle of the street. She
was about -U years old. bad grav hair and was
very well dressod. A number or nassersby
stpuiied when sho began to dance and several
servants rushed out of tne Hliermnn Nquare
lintel to watch her
"Follceman Newman saw tho whole thing,
but hesitated at first about intorferlng. 'If I
arrest people like that.' ho said to me. 'I will
surely gel Into trouble. A policeman never
dues arrest well-dressed people like that for
disorderly conduct without having to pay for

"I assured him that if thore ever was such a
thing as disorderly conduct ho had a case
right in front of him. Then tho policeman
told the woman togouwav. lie gave her that
warning three times and each time walked
away himself so that she might end tho epi
sode herself with the least possible humilia
tion. The warnings wero.ignored, and the
Englishman began to abuse the policeman for
sneaking to the woman. Tho policeman ap
pealed to me again, and I told Mini to do his
duty and assured him that I woukl stand by
him. Then he arrested both tho man and tho
woman, and we all started for the Mice sta
tion together. On the way the prisoners be
rated Newman worse than I ever heard oZpo

him that slio was 'hick Crokcr's eoTieln' and
that she would make him suffer. In the sta
tion house the Englishman called the Ser
geant 'old ehapplo' and, the Captain 'an old
slob.' It was very evident that botn prisoners
haifneen drinking. I told Capt. Moynihan that
Newman had been justified In making the ar
rest, and the Captain said at the tlmuthathe
thought so. too.
"Although I believed In the arrest, and al
though I hnd never seen the woman before In
my life. I did not want to have hor looked up all
night, so offered to furnish bail for her The
Sergeant accented mo us a l.oudsman, nud the
woman was rel.asc.l under S.'KKJ ball. I would
not furnish ball for her companion. It Is a
shame thnr, a policeman should bo obliged to
consider bis own standing when trying to do
what he knows to be Ids duty. They arrest
a lot of those bovs of the Twelfth lteglmeiit
just home -from Cuba for celebrating a litt'e
bit Iwllli their friends and they arrest a lot of
poor people without, friends to makn a fuss
about it afterward, but they are afraid to treat

Detroit, Mlcla. March ill. The battlo bo
tvvoon tho forces In favor of municipal owner
ship of tho stfeet car lines nnd those oppoted
under tho McLeod law is still undecided, but
tho chances of victory rest largely with Gov.
Fingreo nnd those In favor of the measure.
At the end of the Council proceedings this af
ternoon, when a rocess was tuken until to
moirow, the Fingreo fnctton had votes enough
lo :nrry through the nominations of tho Com
mlsisnncrs, but wanted to he assured first
that these Commlsslonois would submit tho
purohase price to the Council before the deal
was completed. Tho Governor will l.e tho
Chairman of the board and Carlo E. Schmidt.
Itopubllcnn, another member. The Demo
cratic friends of tho bill have named Elliott (K
Stevenson, a silver man, but there Is same ob
jection to him on account ot this and the mat
ter went over until to-morrow noon.
The McLeod law empowors the Detroit
Common Council to create n commiislon of
three with full authority to buy uo the street
railway systems of tio city upon such terms
ns they may think best and to operate the lines
for tho municipality. As the variously items
are boudod for $11,000,000. tho law commits a
transaction of no ordinary proportions to an
unusually small group of Commissioners. This
triumvirate has the right of perpetual succes
sion, with power to buy the street railways and
operate them for all time the only restriction
being that tho fares aro to be no higher than
they are now. six for a quarter on tho old sys
tem nnd eight for n quarter up to 8 o'clock at
night on the now lines.
It Is set, forth In tho enactment that tho city
is to Incurlno debt In acquiring the properties,
but Is to pledge the roads and their earnings
for the purchase llgure. Tho contract with
the companies Is to provido for the return of
the proportlos to them it municipal control
proves a fizzle, but an aftor-thought clause of
the law insures tho public that the return of
the streot railway systems to the companies
does not Involve the extension of the llfo of
any existing franchise. Good lawyers main
tain, however, that in caso of default and fore
closure and tho return of tho railways to their
corporato owners, a perpetual franchise Is
bound.to go with thom.
Gov. Flugrce, In his new role, is becoming
sponsor for n transaction and an experiment
involving great hazards, vast resiionslbllitles
and any number of knotty legal questions.
But it is not alone the unprecedented bestow
al ot powsr upon three Commissioners and
the optimistic assumption or tremendous
fiscal obligations and technical details that
have evoked a furious protest from the tax
payers and an Insistent demand for a popular
expression upon the wholo matter. The stealth
and oolorlty with which the matter was put
through the Legislature and the refusal or the
Governor to stay his pen one second to listen
to protests and appeals from the citizens of
Detroit aroused the people quite as much as
the startling provisions of the act. A great
massmeetltig which tha "people's friend Mud
reliance" at Landing sought to pack with
ward whoopers and river front roughs de
manded tho submission of tho matter to u vote
of the people beforo the solectlon of the com
mission should lie made.
Notwithstanding this action and notwith
standing the rejection of tho Fingree resolu
tions calling tor the Immediate apoointment
or the Commissioners and the selection of Mr.
Fingree ns one of tho threo. the promoters of
the sMieme brought tremendous lnlluence to
liearZupon the Itenubllean council to Cltm-h the
matter forthwith through tho proaipt an
nouncement of the names of the mon who nro
to deal with the railways. It Is an unusual
sight for the potato statesman's followers to
look upon the "people's champion" directing all
the energies of himself and hi. placemen to de
teat the popular demand for deliberation nnd
the referendum in this municipal ownership
and control scheme.
The explanation of Tlngrce's efforts to make
municipal management of street railways a
fixed fact at nn early date is found In the ex
periences which the new year has unfolded
tor him. Things havo gono disappoint
ingly with him. It has been nothing but a
serlej of reverses and rebukos. Ills on
slaught upon Senator Burrows was unavail
ing. The .legislative organization sllnped
away from him. The Senate tinkered his pet
taxation projeet. Ills nominations for State
offices wore ruthlessly treated. One or the Hit
preme Caurt Judges who Interfered with his
ambition to be both Governor and Mayor at
the snme time was renominated. He became
impressed with the thought that the Fingree
prestige was in need ot roj.airs.
In this mood the Governor sought his former
antagonist, Tom Johnson, and the two found
hat thev had enough in common to tako a trip
to.Nsw York. The Michigan Gnveruorlhnd to
get Into condition for the midsummer gather
ing of reconatruefioulsts at Buffalo.; The
Cleveland capitalist had a railway system that
he was not averse Jto closing out to a politi
cally ambitious and eager buyer with friends
to take care of and a municipal ownership
boom to spring upon lliillalo. Between them
they got up the "McLeod bill." To rush it
through tho Legislature and make it imme
diately operative was considered essential to
Mr Filigree's Presidential pmspocts. To
reach this end Fingreo had enfiladed the sa
cred Idea of a referendum.
