Ijj down tho prlzo. Whllo special tentt of the company were out looking or him they learned that two men, cor rtipondlng strangely to the employeo isd a pal, had been trying to show that Ttntt avenue could rival Broadway. Those acute students of human nature hid noticed them during three days, plutertd with bills and otherwise The pair Indicated by the way they navlgnted Tinth avenue that they were seamen mJ also there was plenty of croen around them. It was noticed that as tt going grew heavier and tha glass dropped to use a nautical phrase fiat the (SO notes began to flutter from thtlr pockets more frequently, and tho sea firing language spluttered faster from their lips. They would enter a 2.75 exchange end say In their sSllor Jargon, "Let's spll.-e the main brace," meaning pipe all hands m deck and wet the whistle. Oddly tnough, the bartenders would grasp this lilts lightning and bring out the 2.7.5, or beer to that effect Then the visitors would hoist a J5 or J10 bill with tno ' remark nautlcallr, "Keep the change " ud uncanny as It may seem, the bar tenders would understand this deep sea Unto too. In fact. It came to be understood all up and down Tenth avenue In a short time, for the more they looked on the !.5 when It was something else, the more their fancy was caught by any little knlcknacls Into which they chanced to bump. In this way shopkeepers along the avenue picked up qu'te a little mirine phraseology and currency In the three days, wondering If ther-flnancial seat of New Tork was be I rip transported from Wall Street to the district between Twentieth and Thirtieth streets. Women who didn't care whether their esut'eal character was real so long as their money was. made the acquaintance of tho pair, and their smiles speedily became golden. Several were said tiv nave annexed J200 or $300 each, which meant that Just that more was added to the EI Dorado of Tenth avenue's business section. But suddenly tho two men who had been 'posing as sailors with enough back pay to lrr'gate a desert disap peared, perhaps because Assistant United States Attorney Cotter took a hind and several men and women were made to answer "Yes" or "No" to very personal questions. Search warrants were Issued to ferret outhe hidden treasures In Tenth avenue tenements, and the trail Is said to have led Maurice A. Netrfleld, a special agent, to the homes of those arrested by him yester day. J The defendants were Mrs. Eleanor Xotice, 19 years old, 182 Tenth avenue; Justus Fredas, 27, a bus boy, 118 West Twenty-e'ghth street: Mrs. Jennie Whel land. 41, dressmaker, 410 West Twontyr ninth street; John S.

As the men In the rear room mm disposing of him Schmidt says he heard others enter tho store. Then on a signal from these latter, and warning him to keep quiet or bo killed, the men hurried from tho store. As soon as he heard the front ' door close Schmidt struggled free and ran Into tho street yell.ng for tho police. Tho men were getting Into a blr tourlmr car across Fulton street and Schmidt got a num- Dcr wnioh he Iras given to the police. He says the men drove lelsurlv Into Grand avenue, followed It to Atlantic avenue, and thcro turned east Schmidt says tho car was a Packard. Schmidt told Detective tmpt John B. Co ugh! In In charge of the Brooklyn bureau and Detective John McKlrdy of tho Grand nvenue station that he hacNrost $7,000 in bonds nnd 81,000 In cash. Later ho told reporters that he had lost 13,000 In cash and (5,000 In bonds. Tho bonds were In denomina tions of $50 and 8100, he said, and were not registered. The cash was In ones, fives, tens, twenties and flftlea Ono of the men who tied up Schmidt woro a straw hat and the other a dark soft hat Both wore dark clothes. The red headed man had been tlrlnktng heavily and was violent In his language, threatening several times to blow Schmidt to hell If he did not do as Ordered. In many respects tho description of the Brooklyn robbers coincides closely with that avallabio for the robbers In Manhattan. ' Districts Poorly- ratrolled. All of the neighborhoods In which the holdups of yesterday morning were per petrated were sparsely patrolled. It Is said that the number of men attending the police campflres at Sheepshead Bay has resulted In a necessary reduction of the number of men on post. According to the accounts of tho vic tims there were six and possibly seven men In the party. .Only three of them entered the hotel lobbies as a rule. All were young, Broadway types, dressed In dark clothes with caps pulled over their eyes. All of them appeared to have been drinking last nlKht but thero la every ovldence that tho crimes had been planned carefully. Both at the St Paul Hotel and at tn Holland Apartments within the last few days persons have been observed about the doors at night They disappeared when efforts were made to learn their business. Within the 'last week a man with a very lame leg walked Into the lobby of the Hotel Richmond, where an attempt at a holdup was; Toned last n htbt by tho refusal of the clerk to open the .1 n-t.1- . - ... uuur. j. ma mtui sioou jenma a piuar and looked the situation over. When the night clerk left iila books the man quickly disappeared Into the street It waspartly this recollection that kept II. J. Gorgas, the night clerk, from opening the door yesterday morning. He believes that the attempt on tho Rich mond was made simultaneously with, that at the Holland, next door, for when he did open the door, immediately after the men had moved away, he saw a man standing In the doorway of the Holland who motioned him to keep away. He went back Into the Richmond to get assistance, realizing"-that the trouble had landed next door. When he again went into the street with his night porter at his heels ho saw the men bundling Into a car and saw Gerald Croney, the night clerk of the Holland, running into the street Holland Tt'lsht Clerk Battered. Croney was tha only one of tho men held up yesterday morning who put up a light. As a result ha had a badly battered nose, where one of tho bandits struck him with the butt of his re volver. "1 was sitting reading a paper," said Croney in describing his experiences to a reporter for The Sun last night and pointing to tho desk and chair, at the end of the small, narrow hallway of the apartment. "I heard a big car draw up in front and saw three men come In. when I looked up from the paper they were in front of me and threo guns were pclnting at me. " 'Where do you keep the moneyr one of the Vien asked and I told h'm that we had no money In this office and no money for guys like them anyway. They kept me covered with their guns while they ransacked the desk. Then-ClSe of them started for me and as he came I grabbed him and threw him over a filing cabinet I had him bent back there and was just hauling off to land him a good one In the wind when one of the othera, calling mo a name, hit mo In tho face and on the Bhoulder with his gun. I let go and they went through my pock ets, tailing $62 of my own money. Then they backed towaro tho door with tho runs still or. me. As son as they got out I ran after them and tried to see tho number on their car, but they had either, taken it off or covered It, for I couldn't Bee It" Croney. who is a husky Scotch boy, was the hero of tho guests In the hotel last night Pretty girls stood around and listened with awe whllelhe told the story of tho encounter. The guests' have started 'a movement to repay him the money he lost. Croney does not believe he could identify the men, as their hats covered their hair and the upper part oi ineir icuiurcs. no says uiey were all huskies. Tho police are relying for Identifica tion of the men upon David L. Garb, a Boston attorney, who was a guest of the St Paul Hotel and a victim of the robbers as he sat In the lobby. Garb, according to his own account was per fectly cool throughout the transaction and took a good look at all three of the men who entered the lobby, Silas a 91,000 Liberty Bond. At tho St Paul, Charles Best, the night clerk, was chatting with Mr, Garb when three bandits entered. They had waited until the elevator had goneup with a guest Onq man covered the clerk and another thrust a revolver Into Garb's face as he sat in a lobby chair. The clerk professed his Inability to open the safe, whereupon th.a man who was covering Garb and who was apparently the leader of the gang ordered his con federate to go through the cash drawer. This he did, taking about 8200 In bills, but missing several hundred dtfllars more In two envelopes which the clerk had thrust under a book. The elevator meanwhile had started down and the leader of tho band deiallel Its third member to cover the operator as ha emerged from tho cage. Then he ordered Garb to put up his lianas. Tncy tooic rrorfi him a diamond pin worth $300 and his wallet In which there was but $7 In cash. Two dollars of this they returned to him "for car- fare.' They threw the wallet on tha floor, without observing a secret flaD in which Garb had one Liberty bond of si.oi'O ana others or $fvo. They then ordered all In the lobby to et into ttm- elevator. Then they told the hoy to run It ub, and when they saw It was well on tho way, shouting a threat for the car to keep on going, they ran Into the street. Tho last seen of them they were going down Columbus nvenue. One of tho men had been drink ing "lenvlly nnd was reeling between his . two companions.

Detectives have obtained no clue as to l Is .pot dear whether the bandiUiUia iierpetrators. j went to the Sherman Square Hotel b"e-' roro or after they went to tho St Paul, as the men at neither place arc quite sure of the tlmo at which the robberies occurred. At the Sherman Square they found W. XL Stack, the night clerk, In the cashier's cage working over the books ajid Arthur Prld, an elovator boy, In the hallway. Prld was forced to put up his hands without a word and then the men thrust their revolvers Into the cashier's cage, the first thing which at tracted the attention of 6 tack, so -quietly had they entered. Retired Away by a Taxlcab. The men first took Btack's watch and a dollar bill which he had In his pocket These they tossed back to him as they were leaving, having found $25 In the cash drawer. The men were alarmed by a lookout who had remained outnido and left quickly when he told them of a tnxl- , ut(j BiupiJIIlH 111 1IUIH VI. 111V, UUUOU. A lie i drove off from the Sherman square, i down Tenth avenue, -In a large car. Their flrst call of vesterday morning had been at the Madison Hotel In Twenty-seventh sarcet, near Madison avenue. There they found Paul Borden cn duty as night clerk. Borden bhIU ho couldn't open tho safo and while he was standing with his hands up Edgertun Burnett, a colored bell bov, woke up and camo out of the checkroom to find hlrrlself covered nnd to lose tho $8.40 which ho had in his pocket. At the Madison, as tt tho other hotel, the night clerk dissuaded them from an attempt on tho safe by assurlngHhem that he did not have the combination and that tho Inside compartments. In which were kept the valuables of the guests, wero locked separately, the guests retaining the koys. At the Sherman Squaro and at the St Paul the bandits verified this statement Tho door of tho St Paul sate was not locked, hut when the bandits saw the number of small boxes they evidently decided that that Job was not In thels) line or within the tlmo limit of tho ap parently careful schedule they had es tablished. The saloon of Richard Grant was robbed on Wednesday night Grant has been in business on tho corner of Tenth avenue and Sixteenth street for twenty years. He does business with the crews of the Cunard and French Line ships, whq dock; near by, and with the men who work In the warehouses and fac tories of the district A hard gang or two has always frequented the neighbor hood, but Grant though small of figure, has a reputation as a scrapper and he has been left alone He Is confident that the men who robbed him on Wednesday nlgbt were not from the neighborhood. Grant and his nephew were sitting at a table near the door and a bartender was behind the bar when threo men entered.. bcught a glass of beer, chatted wlti thu bartender and then stepped Into the wash rcom, apparently for a conference. When they returned ono man covered Grant and his nephew while one covered the bartender and the third locked tho side door. ) They then went trough the cash register getting about $300. Soirchlng Grant they found another $300 and i wctch nnd chain valued at $100. Tlioy missed a handsome watch which Graft's nephew was wearing. Warning the three men not to follow them they left by a B'do door and departed In an automobile which ran swiftly over Sixteenth street and apparently turned up Ninth avenue. Arrrsts for Minor Thefts, In connection with three other rob beries In the city reported within the lent three days Ofo police have made six arrests. J. O'Donnell, 21, of 2492 Eighth avenue; Frank Caruso, 20, of 437 West Twenty-eighth street awl John Succaman, 24, of 464 'West Thirty fifth street were arrested by Patrolman Gleason of the West Thirty-nfth street station when he found them in the base ment of a saloon at 261 West Twenty ninth, street preparing to cart off a bar rel and Ave cases of whiskey in a truck that was standing outside. Gleason went into the cellar after them 'and. made the arrests only after a stiff bat tlo with his nightstick. An ambulance surgeon had to take a half dozen stitches In the scalp of each prisoner. William Dletz, 18, of 263 West Sixty second street and John Fltzpatrick, 27, of 690 West Fifty-nlnfh street wero arrested in a lumber yard at the foot of Sixtieth street charged with the theft of 10,000 cigarettes and nine dozen pairs of silk' socks from a nearby railroad freight car. The arrests were made by Detective Harry Moss,of the West Slxty "elghth street station and John O'Brien of the New York Central force. The stolen articles were recovered In the lumber yard. William Thompson, 21, of 121st street and Third avenue was arrested when he could not explain his unpermitted presence In the closet of the homo of John E. Dwlght, 33 Mount ,MorTls Park West. Ho was caught after a window of tho house, empty at the tlmo, had been forced and a burglar alarm turned In. Mayor Sngrireits Motor Squads. In ' the meanwhile Mayor Hylan rushed to the fore with the means for stopping such banditry. Assuming Presidential "verbiage he wroto to his friend. Commissioner Enright saying: "May I not suggest to you the advis ability" of having all automobiles on the street late at night examined by the police and special automobile squa : a( tactical points? IDs letter was as follows: "Deak Commissionzr: From time to time bandit gangs in high powered auto mobiles have made a practice of holding up people in apartments and hotels. "Would it not be wise at this time to Instruct the patrolmen on post where holdups of these kinds are liable to occur, after 12 o'clock at night to makj an investigation as to the occupants of the cars, and if anything suspicious appears to take, tho number of the car, examine the license number of thi chauffeur and 'question the occupants of the car as to their business In that immediate neighborhood? "May I not suggest to you the advisa bility of having a special automobile squad detailed at points which you may select, so that immediate attention may be given to any car that looks as though It contained gangsters who nre out for unlawful purposes. Should any chauf feur refuse to stop his car at tho request of the police officer instruct the officer to. take the number and description of the car, telephone immediately to Police Headquarters so that the number of the car and description can be communicated to the police all oyer the city, to -the end that the driver of tho car may be stopped and a thorough Investigation made. "Might I not say In this connection that the police should see to' It that all license numbers are distinct and properly displayed? Very truly yours, "John F. Hixjin, Mayor." BRUCE MANSION RANSACKED.

It Is THE SUN, SATURDAY, ' M ' Si $58,000 BANK THIEF LIVED DOUBLE LIFE Boy Had Eoom In n Hotel Whoro no Kept His Broad- , "vay Clothes. PARENTS UNSUSPECTING , Borchwick 0f ton Borrowed Quarters Fl'Om Mother Bofoi'0 Going Out of Nights. Robert Borchwick, seventeen-year-old bank clerk, who confessed Thursday nighty that he had stolen Liberty bonds to the value of $68,000 from the Bronx- branch of the Columbia Trust Company at 14Sth street nnd Third avenue, was arralgnod yestorday In tho Morrlsaiila court and held In $10,000 ball. Borchwick has returned $47,000 worth of the bonds and has given the bank au thorities information which they hope will lead to tho rocovery of $5,100 worth more. The rest of the bonds, or their money equivalent, havo gone to Increase the bank accounts of taxlcab drivers, Broadway tailors, restaurant keepers and amusement proprietors at Coney Island. Not tho least Interesting, circum stances of tho theft aro tho manner of tho taking of the bonds and the recov ery of part of them. Borchwick, who has been out of school only a year, was employed a a clerk In the roan depart ment of tho trust company's branch In Tho Bronx. Part of Ills duty consisted of tabulating and tying Into packages. Donas and other securities deposited by clients as collateral for loans and the placing of them in the bank vault He had been doing this since July 6. i But within that time no one at the bank had any Idea that ho was stealing, and tho bonds were never missed until Thursday, when he walked Into the bank with his mother, placed $47,000 Worth of bonds on the manager's desk and an nounced that he had converted tho other $11,000 worth Into cash and spent most of It Bank: Manager Amazed. "It was like a bolt from the blue," said the manager when he told of the theft yesterday. "Up to tho moment he walked In here we had io Idea that he had been stealing. However, our check ing methods certainly would havo brought the 'shortage to light within two months. It is my own notion that Borchwick realized-, that discovery was close upon,him when he decided to con fess. However, I wish to bIvo him full credit for returning the bonds ho has brought back." Borchwick when arralcned yesterdav was charged only with the stealing of rne su.ooo or bonds, which ho admits he converted Into cash, and his attorney, Samuel Goldstein, made a point of the restitution In asking Magistrate Mancuso to fix a light ball. The Magistrate, how ever, flxed tho amount nt $10,000, say ing uiai mere nad been a sort of em- demlc of Liberty bond thefts lately and that some one must be made an ex ample of. iNevortheloss." said Mr. Goldstein, there is something to bo said on the ether side. It seemsto me some atten tion ought to be drawn to bankers and brokers who either entrust valuable and liquid securities to clerks who are no more than boys, or, which is the same thing, permit them access to them." Mr. Goldstein mentioned also the fact that Borchwick had opened an account at one bank where no investigation was made of him. V Borchwick has been able to live like a youthful millionaire ever since he be gan stealing bonds, but: bis eiy llfo In his hours ,of dalliance was unsuspected (it his home-, 623 St Ann's avenue, where ho lives with his parents and a brother. The father is a plasterer and the brother a clerk in a downtown office. Would Borrow From Mother. At home the boy wore the same plain clothes in whloh he appeared at the bank dally and used often to borrow quarters from his mother to keep alive In her mind the Impression that ho was barely able to get along on wnat he kept out of his solar", $21, after giving, most of Bis weeKly earnings to her. But outside his home he was a spec tacular spender. Taxicabst meals at high priced restaurants and excursions to Coney Island were his special hob- bios and he was very generous to his boy and gin mends, who, while partak ing of his bounty, wero given to under stand that he was playing Wall Street and making all kinds of money. Ills sporting clothes and a package of stolen bonds lie kept at a good hotel, the man agement of which supplied detectives yesterday with descriptions of two other youths who used to go there with him. It was said at the bank yesterday that It was Borchwick s brother who first Ula covered that lie had been stealing. The brother went to a clothes closet on Thursday night to get a box'of matches. thrust his hand into one of Robert's coats in the dark and found $500 In It He told his father, who demanded an ex planation from Robert and the boy con fessed. FREEDOM FROM CONSTIPATION AVERTS MANY ILLS "There is a direct relatioruhip," auetta Mr. A.W. McCann, "between the known causes of conttipation and the suggested causes of many diseases induding'cancer. In the diet a lack of the substances found in the bran of wheat leads to conttipation and thus to ail the other evilt that conttipation precedes." "The demand for laxative pills, cathartics and heart depressors for the relief of constipa tion and the headaches and fits of indisposition due to the absorption of retained poisons from congested intestines is auf.icient proof," de clares Alfred W. McCann, in his epoch-making book, "The Science of Eating." "that the miseries of constipation cause more human woe than drunkenness. The average creature," he says, "who lives largely on food deficient in cellulose fiber and mineral salts needs no description of the infirmities due to constipa tion. Diagnosticians are agreed that many of the ills that plague human nature are preceded by a history of constipation. They are alto agreed that freedom from constipation averts many ills.
