This bns resulted In the cutting down ot tho pay of nil tho mon on the Nnssau system, nnd It Is this situation which has made trouble between the employees of the llnpld Transit system nnd the officials of tho company'." Mr, Johnson said that ho looked upon nil the old Nassau men ns his friends. 'I worked with these mon four years." ho added, "and I know thoni. I paid them by what I consider n fair system, the svstetn which wo use on our roads In Detroit and In ( levo nnd, pay for nil the work they do. Hut 1 told them that n strlko should always bo fi lust resort They wanted me to go to see Mr, llossltor for them, but thnt I obviously could not do. I did advise them to see SInvor Vim Jvyclf and endeavor to enlist him in their belinlf " When Mr. llossltor, tho President ot the llanld Transit Company, saw this Interview with Mr. Johnson, tho former President of tho Nassau line ho gave out tho following state ment as an Interview: " As to tho statement of Mr, Johnson, he said he had been familiar with the fact thnt not nly had Mr. Johnson glien his check for a largo sum to Mnstor Workman James Pines nit nn employeo of either tho ltnmk itn llanid Transit Company or any por tion of Its system-hut that Mr, Johnson liiiil ulsq for tho Pnat two weeks been holding t frequent conferences with (lenerai Master Workman Parsons and District Master Workman Pines nnd had Invltod certain em ployees of this company to meet him nt his officii. "It will bo remembered that tho Messrs. Johnson recently sold their interest In the control of tho Nassau Company to the Ilrook I) n llnpld Transit Company In vlow of tho con ditions which existed nmong tho men before the Johnsons sold their interest in tho control of tho Nassau prop erty, Mr Johnson's activity in other people's affairs can hardly bo attributed to his Philanthiopy. as a reference to the Detroit Vein will show, and taken In connection with other nttempts which havefcomo to the knowl edge of tho company, showing a determined effort to depress the prlco of the company's stock in Wall street, tho purpose of tho effort to produeo dissatisfaction among our em ployees is apparent, however discreditable It may be to those connocted with It. I havo said fiom the start that thero was no general dissatisfaction among our employees, nnd tho events have instilled this belief, but It Is par ticularly gratifying to know that the men themselves will now recognize tho selfish or igin of the attempt to breed dissatisfaction in the Interest of Wall stroet speculators. "Mr. Ilossiter stated that his attitude had boon all along n.xnresseil In his repeated as surance ot willingness to meet the employees ot the company at any and all times, but thnt he would not nnd could not consist ently Itreat with those outside of tho em ployees, who never had n knowledge of the nffalrH of tho property nor wero familiar with the men Individually. The offi cers have not believed nt any time that tho situation with regard to the employees has been any less pleasant during the last thirty days than nt any other period during tho last four years, nnd tho management further recognlred thnt the employees are n pnrt and parcel of its system, nnd thnt their welfare and Interest weic regarded more by the officers of the company than could possibly ho tho cose with nuy outside organization or indivlduiils " Mr liosslter was told by a Hr.v reporter that some of the employees had said that he had not kept his promises to tho men. " 1 never hroke n promise to tho men yet." he snld. "and never villi I only inadu one promise and that was to send u man or men over the lines to find if their grievances wero well founded nnd to remeity them nn far as possible if they wero well founded. Thero villi be no strike, nnd even If there was vvn have men enough In Urooklyn to man every car on the Nassau system. This statement wns shown to fiener.il Mas. ter Workman John X. Parsons of the Knights ol 1,'il'iir He admitted that lie hnd In en with n committee In the office of Mr. Johnson, but denied receiving B"y of the money. If money wns given, he said. It was given to the com mittee for the union. " I have hnd nocourerntiop with Mr. Johnson or any one tde regarding theeon'lnuingof the dispute between the men and the com pany." he snld. 'So long ns the agreement of the company Is kept I will use every means In mv power to dls"ourage strike ngltatlon, irhether It Is by outsider or no. I believe that It la tho Intention of the coinrany to rectify any grievance's," Pnisons appeared to be anxious to put him self nn record ns having the utmost faith In Picsitlent llossltor and the other officials of the company He would light overv Mrlke movement to the last He explained his slt to Mr. Johnson's otfiee by saying that after tho committee called on Mr Ilossiter recently they went to see Mr Johnson and asked him IParsons) to come along. He went unwillingly, lie said Mr. Johnson apparently did notwnnt to see him. nnd he did not stay long. He (Parsons) denied that ho had stirred up nnv strike rumors In order to muke capital for himself.

Tho Mollnou'x case was laid boforo tho July Grand Jury yesterday, and, It Is stated, at tho demand of that body. Major Gnrdlnor tins dis covered more "Improper Influences," local this tlmo to July.andlt Is now well known that his assistant, Mr. Osborne, had privately ob tained from JustlcoWcrncran order permitting him, if ho cIiobp. to hold the caso ovor to August Hut the July Grand Jury arc said to havo made n formal requisition on tho District Attorney's office that the case, which Is a prison case, be laid before them at once. They got It yosterday. They oxamlnod two wttnessos, handwriting experts Klns'ey and Carvalbo, nnd adjourned the further Investigation until Monday Kinsley, ns Is well known, says that Mollneux wrote all the disputed writings In tho case Carvalho, who denies this, Identifies as Mollncux's ono letter written to n patent incdiclno mnn on "threo-crescent" notepnper of a kind on which ono ot tho disputed letters was written, also to n patent medlctjio man, It Is supposed that his testimony about this lottor was wanted yesterday. It is stated that the complaint against Mollneux was not presented to tho Grand Jury as directed In Justice Fursrann's order, but that tho jury was simply net to inquiring, generally Into the death of Mrs. Kathnrlne J. Adams br poison. However. If this Is an error in procedure, tho August Grand Jury Is still open to tlie prosecutor. District Attorney Gardiner, who recently en tered into a public controversy with his pris oner, has another on hand with the Ilev. John Monro, n clerical visitor at tho Tombs. Mr Monro wrote a lotter to n newspaper saying that ho believed Mollneux was Innocent. Major Gardiner thereuiion wrote something like this to Francis I.antry, Commissioner of Correction- "Dkab tfm: I hereby ask thnt tho Itev Mr. Monro be excluded from tho Tombs prison, he being n public official who has expressed an opinion publicly desiring to lnflueneo the ac tion of tho Grand Jury In tho case ot Koland 1!. Mollneux " Commissioner Lnntry was nwny, but his deputy sent for the llev. Mr Monro nnd threat ened to mnko n complaint against him to the missionary boclety that employs him. The minister apologized Hn explained that other missionaries In the Tombs had expressed their boliof that Mollneux was Innocent. Then ho was told that none of these missionaries had expressed such an opinion through tlio public Press. That, ho was told, was the offence When he said he still believed In Mollneux's Innocence, and that it would not bopossiblo for him to retract the opinion he had ex Pressed, he was Informed thai he would hno to square matters with Major Gnrdlner or keep out of the Tombs. So ho wroto to tho Major, saving: "I nm simply n missionary and not nn offi cial. I have no interest whatever In any per son In the 1'ombs except those who nro con fined there, tho poor unfortunntes accused ot crime. Whether thev nro guilty or Innocent, they nro entitled to the consolations of reli gion, which t. in mv humble way. administer to them I limn un opinion as in tho guilt or Innoccnes ot Mr Mollneux except so far as I judge from his nctlons and demeanor jvhlle In confinement. I use my privileges in The city prlsiw simply tn soften tho hnnMiiiw of the llfo of tho unfortunates confined there, not tn criticise public officials In tho discharge of their duties If I erred In nn excessive zenl In saving to the public that I believed Mollneux innocent of the crime charged, the opinion wns formed slrnplv from his nctlons nnd demeanor Other missionaries situated as I am have expressed opinlo'is as to tho BtiHt or Innocence of unfortunates In tho Tombs, but nn censure Is made of them I re gret very much that nny stntehient of mine can be construed as guiding or instructing the Grand Jmr Investigation In tho ease of the man Mollneux I nm a servant nf Christ and go to tho 1 ombs in the Interest of mercy to re born the sufferings of those confined there un der charges of crime, nnd I don't think any public olficlnl should take it upon himself to censure moon my judgment which judgment wus based only on the actions and deiucnnor of n nerson In prl"nn " To-day the llev Mr Monro will gn to the Tombs ns usual and will probably beheld up by Warden Hagcn If he is not permitted tn cnter.be will consult counsel, and will prnbab'v gn to the Supreme Court for a writ nf mandamus tn prevent the District Attorney from interfer ing with his religious work.
