Twenty Central OfDce men navigated pa-nlno launches up and down tho Hud son llivir between Kingston and Hudson jotcrday afternoon, putting to shore whenever they saw one or tho big Ice hmi--. They were after evidence for Commissioner Waldo. Soon nftor the Mayor requested the Commissioner to find out why It was that to tunny small dealers were complaining Hint they couldn't get Ice from the Knick erbocker company and the other big con cerns CommiMioner Waldo picked a uniad of men who didn't look too much like detectives and ordered them to visit nil the Hudson River ice houses, find out how much ice the companies actually have In reserve and report to him speedily. It will lie up to them to find out if the Ice companies have been frank with the police investigators. President Wesley M. Oler of the Knickerbocker has told th' Commisloner that the city would he as badly off the next time a period of burning weather came along as it was during the last spell for the reason that the Ice companies can't get enough skilled men to handle the supply between the storehouses and this city. One of ill" purposes of the detectives' ice hunt i to pee if there are enough workmen to shunt blocks of loo Into the barges and ct them down here. The Commissioner has suggested to Mr. Oler that any time he needs laborers it ought not to be hard to cot them in the living places of the unem ployed. Hut tho most important part of the up river Mouthing will be to estimate the uuantity of ice on hand now. From various source the Commissioner has heard that the Knickerbocker and its subsidiary concerns make a practice of linishing the year with a big lot of ice and that the purpose of keeping so much in reserve is to limit the distribution in order to gel better prices. Independent dealers have paid that there Is always enough Ice up river but that somehow the price to them goes up with the temperature. The detectives are expected to make their teport to the Commissioner to-day and i lie Commissioner will forward a report to the Mayor and to District Attorney Whitman. The report will include 478 statements I torn small dealers and experiences col lected by a squad of seventy-five men ent out by the Commissioner for the purpose of llnding out if the big supply ing concerns had been oppressing them in the last few weeks. Tho stories picked up by the Ice wpiud conflicted In many eases. Some of the small dealers pro fessed to be satirised with their dealings with the Knickerbocker. Others made the direct charge that they had been com pelled to pay higher prices since July 9 and that although they saw boatloads of ico in home rases a supply was refused One detectivp saw Joseph Nardo, a dealer of 312 East Korty-nlntli street Nardo said he applied at the Independent loo Company at the foot of Kast Thlrty mth street on July 13 and was told that i here was no ice on the boat. Nardo aw a lot of ice at the time. Then he went i the Knickerbocker depot at the foot f Kast Thirty-fifth street. The Knicker oeker people turned him down, saying liey had no ice to peddle out The boats," said Nardo, "contained a -arj;" quantity of Ice " Another detective interviewed l.tligi .irese of 435 West Forty-fifth street, Michele, Campanella of 644 Ninth avenue, iniieppe F.sposito of 644 Tenth avenue, loiuao Abruzzes, of 644 Ninth avenue, Leonardo Rattl of 375 West Forty-eighth -treet and Haffaelo Loearelli of 369 West I iftieth street. They told him that they I Ad paid 13 cents a hundred pounds for e up to July o, but that they have been dying 18 cents a hundred since.

Another Charge -NrierHeenlmltrtril. The fact that the Federal Grand Jury is still investigating the old "sleeper trunk mystery" was dlsolnsod yesterday when William C Dreler, secretaryof tho Iilchteti steln Millinery Company, was brought before Judge Hand of the United States District Court ror contempt. When the Grand Jury was conducting a similar Investigation moro than a year ago Dreler was subpoenaed to produce tho books of the Mchtensteiti company. He failed to produce tho books on the constitutional ground that to do so would tend to incriminate him. The matter was eventually takon to the Supremo Court nt Washington and Dreler was directed to produce the books, which he did recently. Then the Grand Jury subpoenaed him to appear to explain th entries. Dreier again refused on the ground that he had previously advanced. W. Wickhntn Smith. Dreier's counsel, ' was not awaro of his client's predicament , until about fifteen inlnutps beforo Mr Dreier was taken before Judge Hand lor contempt in refusing to obey the court's Huhpnrna. He hastened to the Federal nulldlng, arriving just in time to head off tho proceedings ami get uu adjournment to next Wednesday The District Attornev did not make an actual presentment for contempt against Dreier, but .Mr. .Smith attributes the failure to do ho to his own timely arrival on the scene The presentment will bo made, it is understood, when the case comes up on Wednesday. Mr. Smith said also that the District Attorney's office had n pardon signed by President Taft all ready to give Dreier If he had testified satisfuctnrliy concern ing the entries. Dreier has not been con victed of any Federal crime or even Indicted so far as could be learned. Mr 'Smith confessed he could not under stand how under the circumstances a pardon could be operative. At Mr. Wise's oflleo no one would deny' that such a ptrdon was at liund. Assistant United States Attorney Dorr said that the President could Issue a pardon even ir the person to be pardoned had no been convicted of it crime. Kvidence of the commission of u crime is sufficient to warrant tho issuance or a pardon, though the proposed beneficiary can accept or reject it. He railed atten tion to "ex parte (iai land," where the majority opinion of the Supreme Court says: The pouer of pardon roufeired hv the Constitution 1 1 1 ii the rrewiilrttl -W tin limited enept lu esses of Impent linienl It extends to eveiy olTeiue known In tliei law nod may lie everrivcl nt any time after ! the coin in i-i iijli . either ln'Tnre leioil pin- , cedillas me taken or iIiiiIiil' their peu deiift ir after convUtioii ami judgment 1 The power Is nut subieit to IcKi-lative unti l I Meier i not at piesent under any accusation of ciinie because he purged himself of the (list presentment for con tempt bv producing 'he l.lchteiiHtclii books pIllMl.ltll to the decision of Hie Supreme Court, and no pieeiitiuent bus j yet been made against him for ref using to testify im to the entries On the other bund Dreier tefused to testif.v ni to the enlritson tin ground that to do so would tend to ilicriininuteliim rhls the Govern ment uigaids as tantamount to an ad mission that an offence hat been com mitted, (Hid it is to this suppoHisi offence that the President's pardon was to huve applied in case Dreier had letilled satis factorily.

The First Socnrlly Company, which hears about the same relation to the Flint National that, the National City Company liears 'to the National City Hank, will also 1h Included In the in vestigation. The investigation will lie for the pursiso of ascertaining whether these companies will infringe upon the Shi man ant l-t rust law The Department of Justice does not indicate in what way these holding com iwnies might, violate the law, but it Is known that Attorney-General Wicker sham for some time has believed that the Government ought to have exact informa tion in regard to 'ho effect of the extensive consolidations of bank interests that have been taking place recently r.imVAY MOTOIDIAX Kll.l.f.n.

The motormau had fallen off and been killed. The nutomatic emergency brake set when the man fell off stopped the train within one hundred and fifty feet without furthpr accident The train had left the 191st street station after the biggest rush or the morning, not crowded. About Tour hundred feet from the station the jolt of the emergency was felt The motorman's cab was round empty. Tho trainmen discovered his IkmIv under the third car. Hoth legs had been cut off and he had probably been killed instantly The efficiency or the automatic brake on subway trains has not been frequently demonstrated in this striking way, al though in tests it has always been found thorough. The visible part of it is a but ton on top of the controller which the mutorman constantly presses down while the train Is moving. As soon as his hand is released, purposely or through fainting or weakness or death, the button rises and Hie brakes arp set. The motormau was William A. Stone of 271 Forty-ninth street, Brooklyn A liossible explanation of his death is that lie had leaned from the side of the cab and his head had been struck in passing a signal post There was the mark of a blow on the side of the dead man's head. Stone leaves a widow and one child. .V: WMKI.ESS llEVEIYEIt OfT. Itiilieri K. IIovvIImk HrtlaiM and No One Is Vsminf In Ills SleaTf. Hubert K.

Staring from Sparrows Point the spout proceeded northward whipping the river Into a seething foam and forming great waves. Driven by a strong wind the spout swlrlPd up the river for nearly a mile before it broke.
