Justice Daly said thnt he had been onoe

JIS.TIIE TRIOR'S $10,000 CHECK.
Justke inly was excused to mnko way for
fnrmor .liistl.'e lloger A l'ryor Justice l'ryor
was called, It neemed. particularly for tho pui
wse of testlfyinc to what demands had been
rnido upon candidates for judiaial offices for
cimpilgn purposes. As Justleo l'ryor took tho
Maud he was creete'd with applause. Tho ep
itome evldrntlv came from Tammany men.
Ills te-tlmony was not particularly in favor of
Tammany methods, and tho Judge cot no ap
plause when he left the stan I. In ref
erence to contributions, ho said that on
Oct. 14. lMU.be was Informed by llichard Cio
kerthat ho would bo otpocted to contribute
HJlu.OnO toward the campaign fund On Oct. 15,
he '.iM. h drew his chock to the order of
llicliani Croker. Clnlrmnn of the Finnnco
Comralttee of Tammany Hall, for $10,000, and
sent It to him. Later he was visited by Mlehael
T Inly, who requested him to make the check
jurat!" to bearer This Justice l'ryor did. and
lie said ho understood that the check was
turneil over to Mr Mcyuald. the Treasurer of
Tammany Hall. Tho witness was asked if ho
thought there was any harm in the Justices
appointing referees who were amenable to
political considerations from men of their own
political faith, and he said that there was no
objection on that particular ground. He was
of the opinion, however, that tho Justices
shouhl be relieved ot tho necessity of dispens
ing ratromge.
The Afternoon Session.
Contrary to the gono'ral impression that Mr.
Croker would be immediately recalled at tho
or'nlng of the afternoon session, the first wit
ness called was Itlchard V. Harnett, a real
estite auctioneer of 7.'t I.iborty street. No
sooner did lie take the chair than Mr. O'Sulli
vin sent a note summoning Feter F. Mever,
Mr Croker's partner in the real estate nuctlon
business, who came In from tho rear room and
seated himself next to tho lawyer. Mr. Harnett
proved to be a reluctant witness and took,
refuge in subterfuges, but was finally brought
to admit that after Mr. Meyor left the firm of
A. II. Mullor A. Son in 1M.VJ, his business be
came very large, referees throwing a great
proiiortionof the auction business to him. Mr.
Moss then asked
y-l'p to lH'i'J there was a fair competition
In the re d estate auction buslnoss, wasn't
there, and the business was protty well divided
between a dozen firms? A Yes.
y During 1MI7 and lftiS was there one firm
Vrhleli hid a great majority of the business?
a -Well, I've been so busy tending to my own
I uslness tint I can't toll about the others.
U' -Now, you'vo discussed this matter and
know what I'm talking about. During the
last two vears hasn't n great majority of tho
business gone to ono firm' A. I don't know

Q -Haven t you complained to mo and to
others that the judicial sales ordersd by the
courti. whicliwero assigned toFeterF. Mover's

A.-l don't say but that Mr Meyor was getting
a large proportion of the salos.

Vill, now. why did jou complain? A. Ordi
nary t ilk about business.

firm got a very largo proportion of tho busi
ness' A Well, they may have had moro

Q-I'm not asking that. Isn't It the fact?
A -Well. es.
Q-nd In the majority of cases the judicial

"11, tint hid a great deal of Influence, I bup-

"That's nil. Mr Harnott "
Mr (J Sullivan then got tho witness to say
that ho had plentj of business ot his own. and
' one time had n very largo percentage of the
Judicial sale business. Then Mr Moss took a
hand In au-ain. and showod by the witness that

After getting tho name of tho man In charge
ot tho retail trade Mr. Moss dismissed tho wit

the man whonddresscs the stock communica

whether tho mon whoso names he had called

cern. JOHN F. ClRBOI.T. C1LIED.
There was a great craning of necks when
John F. Carroll was next called to tho stand.
He sat down with a halt smile on his smooth,
round face, holding his cane and gloves in his
left hand, and loanod back In his chair easily,
as it anticipating no sovere ordeal. Mr Moss
began with him as follows-
" Mr. C rokor has described you as his assist
ant leader. Aro you his assistant?
"No. no," broke In Mr. Crokor. "that was not
my description. You called him that, nnd I
said he was a sort of a deputy
"If Mr. Croker said it." said tho witness. "I
guess it's right."
" Well. I won't quarrel with Mr. Croker over
It," said Mr. Moss, "we will call you his first
deputy. Will that do?"

right."

l'p to this point tho witness had shown in
his munnei a certain offhand carelessness that
at times bordered on belligerency, but in the,
next filteeu minutes, under Mr. Moss's ques

Ids personal anulrs. In lesponse to Mi Moss's
first question, as to wheio he got tho money on
which to live, Mr. Carroll merely shook his

"Does Mr. Cioker pay vou n i-alury '" asked
Mr. Moss. "No," said the witness. In a low
tone
"Does tho Deniocrntlcorgmintloii V" "No,"

There was a long pause, during which the
witness looked up ot the celling, then brought
his gaze down ami sild. In subdued tones I

"Do you own any stock. Ml, Carroll I" said
Mr Moss
The witness s voico could scarcely bo heard

"Have you got any stock in thu Consolidated

after a long pause, Mr. Carroll said: "I de
