Crooked Politicians, Mixed in
Bond Theft's, Warned for
Financing Flight.
Noted Gambler in Ohio Me
tropolis Also Said to Have
Heceivcd Stolen Securities.
Corrupt Cleveland politicians wero ald
last night to have aided not only In tho
disposal of vast quantities of securities
stolen in tho financial district here, but
also to have' financed tho flight of
"Nicky" Arnstcln, "Big Nick" Cohen and
other principals In thoso thefts. Tho
connection has been discovered through
an Investigation that prlvato detectives
have been carrying on for weeks In tho
underworld of Cleveland, as well as by
Inquiries Into the doings of certain profes
sional men of that city.
A high city official or Cleveland has
been discovered to have been a customer
of a brokerage house through which
many stolen stocks passed. Another of
ficial Is said to be a frequent visitor
at a gambling house run by "Cheeks"
or "Roughy" OInsbursr, a friend of Cohen
and Arnsteln, who has been mentioned
frequently In testimony given In con
nection with the case.
A telephone call that summoned one
of Arnstcln's lawyers to Cleveland to
see him was traced later to Otnsburg's
room In the Hotel Wlnton. It was also
Ginsburg who several months ago dis
posed of $50,000 worth ot Liberty bonds
that were discovered afterward to be
a part of the loot of Bennlc Ulnkowltz,
the murdered bank messenger.
Fnffltlvea Hide In Woman's Home.
For a while the band of politicians Is
said to have kept the two "Nlckles"
concealed In tho homo of a notorious
Cleveland woman. They are reported
to have done much to throw the officials
of this citv off the scent of tho
"Nlckles" and other suspects.
Saul S. Myers, attorney for tho Amer
ican and British surety companies that
are seeking to cet the fugitives, said the
two "Nlckles"4 switched most it their busi
ness to Cleveland after the firm of
Sullivan & nowlc ot 10 Wall street
had been closed by the District Attor
That was In November, and from that
time until February Arnsteln and Cohen
are alleged to liavo dealt with vari
ous Cleveland "fences," which have
thrived under protection of certain oV
ficlals. To date not a man or wonutn
connected with the bond plot has been
Investigated who had net some Cleve
land connection.
Mr. Myers said that the stocks turned
over by the two "Nlckles" to Sullivan
& Bowles aro certain to result In much
litigation. All have been found In banks
in Philadelphia and Washington, whore
Sullivan & Bowles pledged them ns col
lateral on loans, and these banks will
not return them unless ordered to do
so by a court of proper Jurisdiction.
Many suits are In preparation now for
their recovery.
The total value of these stocks Is up
ward of $600,000. They were pledged
with tho banks for $230,000. Half of
this went to Wllen W. Easterday and the
firm of Sullivan & Bowles. The other
half went to the two "Nlckles." The
latter gave about $20,000 to Joseph
Gluck, who turned the stock over to
them, and Gluck gave $900 to the mes
sengers who originally stole a large
part of the securities. j
53,000,000 Bond Thefts Ilereanont
Bond thefts within the last year in
this part of the country are said to total I
I $3,000,000. More than half of the loss
has been sustained by the brokers be
cause thefts exceeded the amount of their
Insurance. Tho remainder of the loss
has been borne by the surety companies.
"Morty" or ".Mortle" Burns, who was
sought by detectives on Thursday as a
principal In the bond theft plot, was
said yesterday to have died on April 11
In. the Lenox Hill Hospital from a tumor
of the lungs. A death certificate bearing
his correct name. Mortimer nernatein. Is
I on file with the Department of Health.
Detectives who had prevfciusly thought
, that the report of"".Morty's" death was a
ruse questioned members of his family
' yesterday and It Is expected that they
will be called as witnesses In an effort to
I trace stolen stocks that he received.
An examination made yesterday of the
records ot the Post-Graduate Hospital
tended to corroborate the testimony of
Joseph Gluck that heL went there with
"Big Nick" Cohen last September to
give stolen stock to "Morty." The latter
was a patient there from September 6
until October 6.
The re-eJtamlnatlon of "Big Eddie"

Street Cleaning Department
Wants Three Constructed.
The Street ClciAlng Department asked
yesterday for an appropriation of
$G28,60a from the Board of Estimate for
the construction of three permanent dis
posal plants on Hiker's Island to be
owned and operated by the city. These
would take the place of the contract
system, which recently was discarded
on account of tho high figure set by tho
contractors. Each of the nronnn,-
plants would have n capacity for ten '
scowloads of refuse a day and would !
serve Manhattan and The Bronx. The
Street Cleaning Commissioner estimates '
the plants could bo completed In four'
months. The request was referred to'
the Committee on Finance and Budget. '
Thomas J. Drcnnan, Fire Commis

Corporation Counsel O'Brien
Is Puzzled Over Wny to
City officials still wero perplexed' last
night as to what to do about fighting
the eight cent faro on tlio lines of thed
Richmond Light and Railroad Company.
Corporation Counsel John I1. O'Brien,
after devoting another day to trying to
obey Mayor Hylon's command for re
taliatory action, admitted last night ho
had not yet discovered ho way to do It
"You can say I nm going Into court,
though," said Mr. O'Brien. "No, I' don't
know Just yet whnt court."
What the city did do, however, to
the amusement ot tho Public Service
Commission and traction officials, was
to vent Its wrath upon the feeble and
Inert Midland Railway Company, the
other Statcn Islaivd road which has been
unable to operate for weeks and has no
Intention of trying to. Mr. O'Brien
went to the Supreme .Couit and got a
writ of prohibition to stop the Iubllc
Scrvlco Commission from giving tho
Midland lines a similar permission to
charge an eight cent fine. Jacob
Brenner, receiver of tho company, al
ready had declared It was Idle for him
to supply for any faro benefits as the

jesterday's Board ot Estlmato aeoatea.
Both officials were Indignant, as well
ns Grover A. Whalen, who has charge
of the Hylan bus system and who feared
Uio Injunction might mean that tho city
must stop operating buses In competi

Mr. Craig sarcastically remarked that
mnybe tho Injunction affected conversa

"And I am ready to go to Jail, too,"
said F. 11. La Ounrdla, Aldermanlc
President, upon a tnom'.-iit's reflection.
Mr. O'Brien considered tho Injunction
only "a matter of form." Asked for his
opinion of the city's power to Increase
tho bus equipment, Mr. O'Brien, who
has only been Corporation Counsel a
few weeks, sought refugt In saying he
preferred "to tako the matter under ad
