Magistrate Houmi has taken offence
at Inspector .lohn 1". Dwyer who was

Magistrate threatened Inspector Dwyer
with arrest in the West Side court yester

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

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

Inspector Dwyer failed to appear before
tho Magistrato on Friday. The Magi

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

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

"Thl man, however, is so obsessed
with tin importance of his now position
that ho feels ho can ignore tho requests

as the principal reason why Inspector
Dwyer lias not appeared in MnRistrnto

Inspector Dwyer said last night after ho
had been served with tho subpirna,

wreath to which silk ribbon bearing nn
Inscription was attached. At tha'Austrlan
frontier a duty of 6 was demanded on
this. Vehement protests elicited thn ex

duty silk pays a high one, and tho uinount
asked for was assessed on the total weight
of thn wieith. After a piolniiKOd ills

"Then," said tho customs officer, "you
must go buck to Italy. f tho ribbon Is
thrown away hero you are still liable
fur tho duty. Ily Ui.-. tlmo tho niournois

their train had gone, and they reached

and Droadway, last Thursday evening.
The body was discovered by a waiter at
7 o'clock, and It was sixteen, hours he
foie tho pullco began a search for tho
murderer.
Acting Detective Captain Cooney was
ordered on Saturday to make a thor
ough Investigation of the circumstances
of tho case, nnd to submit a report
fixing the blame for the tardiness In
taking It up. Captain Cooney yester
day M-nt a written statement to the
Commissioner.
It Is understood that tho report criti
cises severely tho Coroner and his as
sistants and puts Uie entire blame upon
them. It was said that tho police of
the West Sixty-eighth street station
had no reason to suppose that n murder
had been committed until Coroner's
I'hysiclau Schultzc mado hU report of
the autopsy on Friday afternoon. Al
though Dr. Fisher Insists that he told
a policeman that tho woman hnd proba
bly been strangled

that Coroner Wlnterbottom did not ap

o'clock.
The body was ordered to Uio Morgue,
It was said, but It did not get there
until catly trlday morning. Dr.
ray that the opinion that Miss Curran
was murdered came from Dr. Schultze
alone. It was said that the marks on
tho neck, which at first were attributed
to the grip of strong fingers, are now
believed to have been caused by mor
tification. Although the police aro still working
on the possible theory that MUs Curran
was lured Into tho hotel and then killed
hv n Erniicster named Itelllv. who has
terrorized the upper West Side, they
."re not Inclined to put much faith In it.
