Two Wall stroet brokers camo to nrlof on
Friday evening last In this cltr. Thoynrelt.
W. K. Swlnton, mombor of the New York Stock
Exchange firm of Dlmock A Co.. and C. C. Miller,
a broker In outsldo securities. Mr. Miller tolls
tho btory. The two went to tho theatro to
(tether that evening and at tho close of the en
tertainment contracted with a cabman to drive
them to the Brooklyn Bridge, whero Mr. Hwln
ton cropotod to take a car for his homo In
Urooklyn. and then to drlvo Miller to tho
Btaten Island Terry
On their journey down tho Dowery tho two
brokers wero attracted by tho blight lights of
a saloon at the corner ot Houston street. They
ordered tho cab to stop there for a momout.
while both mon went into tho saloon and took
a drink. In a fow moments they returned to
tha street Their cafc was gone Thor hsd
paid the cabman in advance.
Tho brokers approached a policeman and
askod wliero they could find another cab. He
told them that doubtless a cab would como
along soon. Then ho proceeded on his beat.
As soon at tho policeman had got out ot sight,
so Miller says, a gang ot thieves made a rush for
the two brokers Onoof the thieves struck Miller
a blow on tho back of his head and at the snino
time wrenched his watch and part of the chain
out of his pocket. Miller, who Is a powerful
man phsslcall), slabbed the thief and cried for
help Tho policeman who had just passed
camo running back and put both Miller and
the thief under arrest Meanwhile tho thief
had dashed tho watch and chain on tho side
walk A man and woman passing by picked
up the ruined tlmepioco and gave It to the
policeman Miller then urged tho policeman
to go to Hn In ton's assistance The policeman
declined, and said that Hwlnton had run down
thostreot. and was too far away to bo over
taken In tho morning Miller wns discharged nt
I'ssct Market Court and tho thief was held
Swlnton was found at his llrooklsn home, lie
had been robbed, It is stated, of three diamond
linger rings, a diamond collar button, a gold
watch and chain, and all the money ho had
with hlin-a total loss of about $!H.iO. Physi
cally, Ml Swlnton Is said to bo a temporary
wreck, with big gashes in the back of
his head, and a broken jaw. He has no recol
lection of am thing that occurred nftor ho came
out of the saloon, Mr. Miller said to a reporter
of The Hun yestordav that knockout drops had
been given to them. After ho had been put in
n cell for tho night a drowsiness came over him
that ho could not resist, and It was with great
dinieults. he sajs. that the oflleers at the
station succeeded in arousing him tho next
The records of the Kldildga street station
show that John Sullivan of 'J30 llowery was
nriestod about V- o'clock on l'rldny night
charged with stealing a gold watch from tho
vest pocket of Mlllerat tho lloweiy and Hous

"Secretary Long was asked by a Vm- re
porter as to tho nowspanoi stories that tho
Navs Department Is taking part In thoScliles
Sampson controversy and Intends to take
action reflecting on Admiral Hchley.
'"There is no truth in such charges,' the
Secretary said. 'We took cognizance of tho
cases ot I.leuts. Hodgson and Hellner because
tho voracity of an officer was Involved Wo do
this often, just the samo as we takocognizaneo
of charges that an officer has failed to P'iv
his honest debts. Tho matter was referred
to Capt t'hadwick to take testlmnnv because
ho Is in command of tho station on which
theso oflleers nro serving. Had tho oiTlceis

would undoubtedly have been misrepiesenta
