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

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
"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.

riot It, Anyhow, Yesterday, In Spllo of tfie
Prosecutor's August Optluii-dnrdlner le
uinnds Inclusion froui the Tombs of n Mis
sionary Who Thinks Mollnem Innocent.
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
"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,
"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
