Magistrate Houmi has taken offence at Inspector .lohn 1". Dwyer who was promoted to miiccosI lnspotor Hayes when HayM was demoted and suspendo recontly on cliargc-t of miking a fal.-o statement to Conunlssotier Waldo. The Magistrate threatened Inspector Dwyer with arrest in the West Side court yester day. Trouble lletilrrn Hollar aitil lM?er. The trouble between thorn began last Thursday when Policemen fileisoti and Itllly of Inspector Dwyer's staff appeared before Magistrate House in tho Weft .Skis court and asked for warrants on affidavit the ofiicers had ngninst three gambling houses In Dwyer's Fourth inspection district. Magistrate Hq'iso hail nworn (lloason and Ileilly to their atlidavits when it occurred to him Mai denly that the usual procislure since tin inferior o.iurts act became ouVcivo 1- ; been for officers obt.i.ning such warrants to apply ror tnem to i inof .Mjgitr.ito McAdoo at sou Mulberrv street. Magistiaio Hoiw' wanted to know from Inspector Dwyer's stall' men why the ins-pector had departi-d from the iNUat procixluru instead of going to Chiif Magi- Ktriltf. Mf'Aftm. tnr thnir in oil .tin (- .np. rents, (lleason and Heilly could enlv ! answer that they hnd beui sent to Mugi I , . . . , I itrato Iiouso by Inspector Dwyer and could offer no explanation tatitfactory to tho court. Magistrato House thereupon directed the two detectives to tell Inspector Dwyer to explain why the inspector wanted the warrants from Magistrate Houm es pecially. In tho meanwhile the Magis trate held tho atlidavap Inspector Dwyer failed to appear before tho Magistrato on Friday. The Magi strate learned that the iui-poctor was giving much of his time to vUiung ( m missioner Waldo at Police Headquarters and tho Magistrato again set the matter over to Saturday forenoon. 'I he two llcemcn were on hand on Saturday for tho third time, but again lnspif ini Dwyer failed to appear in court. They asked that tho affidavits lie returned to them, but Magistrato House refused the request. Threaten In rrrnt DtTrr. .

When the two de tectives from Dwyer's stall were tu court again yosterday without Inspector Dwyer the Magistrate said that the limit of his ati(nco had been reached. Ho issued n subrsena to bo served on Inspector Dwyer nnd said if the Inspector does not appear by 2 o'clock this nfternoon that ho will ho arrested. "Heretofore all other Inspectors," said the MagMlrr.to to the two policemen in court yesteiday, "have been courteous enough to reond when I requested their presence in court to explain malterscon ceining nnests and conditions in their districts. "Thl man, however, is so obsessed with tin importance of his now position that ho feels ho can ignore tho requests of this court. Thero will bo no further requests for Inspector Dwyer's appear ance here. " 'I he great amount of work which th inspectors of Manhattan and Tho lironx have been doing during tho InM. few days in piepanng lor Commissioner Waldo tho list of all tho gambling and disorderly houses nnd the names nnd nddresses of tho owners of those properties is given as the principal reason why Inspector Dwyer lias not appeared in MnRistrnto House's court "I have had to see Commissioner Wnldo in answer to summons from his oftico, " Inspector Dwyer said last night after ho had been served with tho subpirna, llwjer Will Apiimr, lie Says, "I had no notion Magistrato House was so anxious to see 1110 about tlio gambling Iiouso evidence submitted by Officers lileason ami Iteilly until I was served with tho subpoena this afternoon.
