WHITMAN SAYS CURRAN LIES. Anil Alitermnn Insist. District Attor ney Itreniiintpiiilril Mm D, Mrurr A statement volunteered yesterday by uniry II Curran, cJiairmun of the Alder men's Investigating committee, that Dis trict Attorney Whitman had recom mended Max D. Steuer for counsel to the committee led Mr. Whitman to tell Mr. Curran over the telephone that tho state ment was a lie and that Mr. Curran knew it won a lie. Nothing else happened. Kor several days it had been the talk at City Hall that Mr. Curran had made an affidavit that Mr. Whitman three time recommended Steuer as tho best choice the committee could make for Its counsel. The purpose for framing such an affidavit did not appear Mr, Steuer Is counsel for Charles ft Hyde, who was indicted for bribery In connection with tho Carnegie. Trust Company Investigation, Yesterday Kmory K. liiickner. the com mittee's counsel, remarked that he did not owefliis appointment to Mr Whitman, because Whitman had recommended Steuer. Retiorters asked Mr Curran whether or not Mr Whitman had recom mended Mr Steuer. Mr, Curran said positively that Mr. Whitman had done so. Ho said that on the iilRlit of AuiBt 6 or 7 he called on Mr Whitman at the letter's nome, 37 .Madison avenue, to nsk for his cooperation and ndvicc. They got to talking about tho right kind of a man for counsel, and, according to Mr. Curran, Mr. Whitman said he thought Mr. Steuer would bo n very good man for tho Job. Mr Whitman got Mr. Curran on the phone. "Did you say that I recommended Steuer's appointment?" ho asked. "Yes. 1 did." replied tho chairman. "Well, you know that I didn't," replied the District Attorney. "Do you continue to say that I did after I tell you that I didn't?" "Yes," said Curran. "Then your statement I n tin and von know It Is a lie." said Mr. Whitman, ha'ng lng up the receiver "Why on earth such a subject should be brought up I don't know," said the District Attorney last night. "What pur pose could Curran have in making an affidavit that I recommended Steuer? Mr Steuer Is an ablo and an honorable man. but anybody could see that his em ployment as counsel for the Aldermen's committee was impossible because of his connection with the Hyde rase. "What happened bo'tween Mr Curran and me was that he asked mo who would be the best man. I suggested Irank S. Black, James W. Osborne and .lames M. Heck as the type of efficiency and experi ence required. I then told him that a man of the keennej? and experience of Mas D. Steuer was the kind of man to keep in mind " It was well known at the District At torney's office that Mr. Huckner didn't like the refusal of the District Attorney to give him a formal recommendation for th job. The District Attorney's ex pressed reason was that Mr. Buekner was too young and inexperienced for tho in tricacies of tho investigation. NEW AFFIDAVIT. SAYS HART lire-tier Attorney llrclnrr.

Evidence against tho good looking young woman who was arrested on Thursday night on tho complaint of a Sixth avenue storekeeper, who charged that Bho had gone, off with several gowns and had forgotten to pay for them, plied up so swiftly yesterday that even experienced detectives began to look on tho prisoner with astonished admiration. Sho said she was 19 when she waa first arraigned ln the West Forty-seventh street station, this girl, who woro an expensive chinchilla coat nnd a white Empire gown, and ehe told the detectives she 'as Frances Hollendcr, a college girl. It was all a mistake, her arrest. She was a college graduate, nnd while she may have taken some of tho things she meant surely to pay for them sooner or later, Uut when she appeared In the West Side police court later the benches were tilled with shopkeepers and representa tives of big hotels, who told tho detec tives that under the names of Mrs. Lew Fields, Jane Cowl, an actress; Mrs. Tewksbury, wife of a broker; Mrs. Vera Dowllng, Dorothy Forbes nnd Miss Hol- lender sho had stayed for eight weeks nt several of tho best hotels ln town nnd had ordered clothes of nil sorts and prices that had been sent without question. MnKlstrate Krotel held her for j:.ooo ball for the Grand Jury when she had waived examination. She cried a little, and Miss Moore, the court's probation officer, took her to a sldo room. Thero she talked to Mlsi Moore when sho had regained her composure. 'AH my troubles came about from a Harvard student whom I met one sum mer ln Vermont." she said. "We fell In love, but we had no money and cou'.il not marry. I have alwnys ncen a goon girl, though. I think, don t you, that It was better for me to have taken these pretty things that I had to have thnn to have got them by leading the sort of life that might have madu mo lose my self -respect?

The detective told the story and the Boston police were noti fied.' ln the afternoon word came that under the name of era Howling " woman answering the girl's description had been sentenced to the Lancaster t Reform StliiKil on August 10. 1911. on the charge of grand larceny, fin? wu" accused of having stolen Jewelry from Boston firms. At her hearing she was rearrested on unother larceny charge, ns the Bos ton detectives had discovered fresh thefts of diamond rings. She stayed la the reform school two nnd one-half months.

He suld that tho prisoner had told him that she wanted lilm to clean some of her dresses and had given him the address of a theatre where he would rind the dresses. He went for the clothes, leaving the girl with his wife. The girl said that sho was thirsty and asked for a drink of water. While the storekeeper's wlfu was in the back of the store, she says, the girl whipped a $100 lace dress out of the show case nnd walked off with It. Then the King Edward and the Knickerbocker knew the dark haired, soft spoken young woman to their sor row. The detectives found a trunk that belonged to her In the King Edward In which there were fifty dresses, thoy say. At Shanley's tho sleuths found she had checked a valise containing u dress nnd two hats. Apparently sho made no attempt to sell any of the clothes. She was staying at the Astor at tho time of her arrest. The proprietor of the Sltxh nvenue store, where she at tempted to get somo clothes on Tliurs day night, had been warned about the girl by a relative, who had an unpaid bill, and recognized her when she came In. He kept her In his place until the detectives arrived. Sho was Inclined to boast a little about her friends to Miss Moore when she was In court yesterday. She s.ild that on Tuesday she dined at n Fifth avenue restaurant with one of the best known play producers In the country. Ho had offered her a part ln one of bis plays, she said, but she had refused to take It. It was thought that some clue to her real namo might be ln a notlco that appeared In a Thursday morning paper, which read: "Frances Your mother very 111; It you wish to save her life write nt once, nil Is forgiven.

At t:30 a squad of patrolmen went along Canal street ln an nutomoblle and begnn clearing tho approach to tho mill of all who showed no Inclination to go to work.

There wns more of u demonstration on the .Merrlmnc street side of the Ayer mills. At that point, too, the brandish ing of clubs had the effect of causing operatives to leave their work, even though they wete not In favor of the strike. Thirty or forty girls comprised an unruly group to handle for the sin gle policeman who had been left on dutv when tlie others of the squad fol lowed the strikers across the bridge. I'hev cheered and waved their hands to others who were looking out of the win dows. Some of them made nn attempt to start the worklngmen's song, "I.'In teruatlonnle." n Ml.alles Are Thrown. I'lnally reenforcements came to the solitary policeman and the street was cleared. In passing along t'nton street between tbe Duck nnd Kunhar.It's mill there was some cheering, but there wns nn absence of missiles, which character ised a similar situation In the previous Mnke. Half a dozen sel7ed bold of tbe gate of the Kuuhardt mill and rattled It upon the hinges in an attempt to force It open j I be effort was futile. At corners nlong : Union and Commerce streets the strikers I ns-emliliHl, but there were no acts of violence, the operative being apparently interested in seeing how rapidly their number Increased The sninners of the Everett mills caught the strike fever and a few hundred of them walked from their frames.

No nrrests were made, tbe trouble being over before the arrival of the police. Those weavers of the Washington mill who were till nt work were told this noon thnt the department would be shut down until Monday. Several hundred assembled In Mill street, lending to this nlnnt. nt the opening hour this afternoon, but there wns no trouble. At closing time this nfternoon quite a few strikers gathered at the Fiverett mill when the workers came out, but there whs no disorder William Yates, national secretary of the Textile Workers Union of tho I. W. W said to-day: "We have tried every possible way t arert this strike. It waa the express wish of Ettor and Clovnnnittl that strike should tie called until after the out come of their trial. But the feeling nmcng the operatives wns so intense orer the long confinement of their leaders that, once started, it was Impossible for any Individual to stop the strike. We are doing everything In our power to stop it and wo may yet lv ablo to stop a general strike If we can't, however, then we will tnko hold of tho strike and do tho bet we can for tho strikers."
