Mr. Whitman repeatedly ha said that he hope to try Hecker first, and feels confident that this plan will lv carried nut. The. DUtrlct Attorney's office received fresh Information concerning new hank account!? of Ueckcr's yesterday. This was turned over to Assistant District Attorney Smith, who Is In charge of the, protection money inquiry. A transaction In which a Manhattan police Inspector figures as the purchaser of J90.000 worth of Long Island real estate, was among tho thtnss brought to light at the District Attorney's; of fice.

The womnn told Mr. Conlon that on a date, specified she hail overheard in thn office of a real estate man an Inspector whom she can Identify thank the rpal estate opprator for having saved J20.000 for the Inspector. The conversation that followed revealed thn the Inspector had been after the properly and that the iral estate man had got It for him $20, t'"0 cheaper than he hud expected. Then Hip graft Investigators began to die into Hip records of Long Island real estate transfrrs. It took but little time to learn that thp property in question Is nt Ilavsldc.

L'p to the present time I have te celved no assistance, but rsther oppo sltlon and embarrassment In the ieor ganlzatlon of the Tollce Department, i which has been grsduatly going on ever since f became .Mayor. 1 suppose that our committee knoivs that the way to' stop graft In the Police Department with gamblers and the like Is to i educe con tact with the sources of graft down to the least possible to one contact If poi- slble. If ;.oii allow the Inspectors and captains all along the line to deal wlibj the matter you cannot possible- avoid graft. ' I trust that you will get a list of the 1 captains and Inspectors and studv their' personalties carefully. I shall alwavs be glad to have jour assistance. Of course. notice that the Mayor was not Invited to the public meeting,' and f i otii the tone of It I felt that It was' nol organized to assist the .Mavor.
