LONDON, Aug. II. Once more the
kincr nas shown his personal interest in
those who lo the hard manual work
of the world His visit to Winchester
for the service of thanksgiving which
marked tho saving of the cathedral
from decay has had as its. hero a work
The danger to the stability of the
cathedral was due to (he foundations
i being laid upon maxsbl soil. When T.
G. .Jackson, the architect, called in to
ailviso the dean and chapter, and laid
bare those foundations seven years ago,
he found that thoro was a great quan
tity of water under the church. Light
hundred years ago the eastern arm of
tho cathedral had been built upon the
trunks ol trees laid lengthwise upon
soft soil. Gradually these sank, ann it
was necessary to supply the support
they had ceased to give by underpin
ninp the cathedra with blocks of con
crete. This was work which had to be done
in water and under water by a diver.
This diver, William Robert Walker,
figured honorably and promineutlv iu
the proceeding! Tn the account of the
preservation of ibe. cathedral which
was sent to the king, the diver was
Labored Five Years.
"The same diver has carried through
the whole work of underpinning, 1 or
five and a hall years he has been bur
rowing under the Cathedral, laboring
in the. dark the water being too dis
colored to allow of the use of electric
light. o one could supervise him, but
no portion of tho work was scamped.
Whenever Mr. Pox, the engineer, put
on diving dress, and went down to in
spect, he found that the diver had con
scientiously and most effectively per
formed his task, The public owes Mr.
Walker a g;rcat debt or gratitudr."
Tho king, having read thin tribute,
said he would like to make Mr. Walk
er's acquaintance. Alter the service,
when their majesties went to look at
tho new buttresses on the south side of
tit nave, the diver was presented. The
king shook him cordially by the hand.
"How long have you been at worn
here?" he inquired.
"Nearly six years, your majesty;"
wbb the reply.
And how many hours a day were
you actually in the water?"
' '8ij hours a dav. sir.''

ARREST OF SCHEPPS
By International News Service,
NEW YORK, Aug. 11 Never In its
history has the police department of New
York been so astounded as by the arrest
of Sam Schepps In Hot Springs, Ark., and
Schepps's statement that five policemen,
all friends of his, connived at his escape.
The sensation of the capture of Schepps
spread from the office of Commissioner
Rhlnelander Waldo to the beat of the
loweat in rank of the big force,
"What will Schepps tell?" was the
question on every Up and the whole city
wondered why, if reporters could locate
Schepps in twenty hours, the city's po
lice and detectives had not been able
lo locate hlrn in twentv-flve days. The
arrest of the paymaster of the gang
sters who murdered Herman Rosenthal
leaves only two men. Harry Horowitz and
Louis Rosenzwlg, remaining to complete
the quartette who killed the pambler.
It is believed Schepps's confession will
The district attorney will begin work
tomorrow on requisition papers on the
governor of Arkansas for Schepps,
though the latter has expressed his wil
lingness to come hero without this for
mality. The district attorney also sent
positive orders that Schepps should not
be delivered to the police authorities of
New York and under no circumstances
will the prisoner be permitted to enter
the custody of any one but detectives
sent from the district attorney's office.
Schepps is desperate and, according to
dispatches from Hot Springs tonight, It
Is feared he will try to kill himself.
May Ask Mayor to Resign.
Simultaneously with the shock to the
police department came an announcement
that a move Is on foot to circulate a pe
tition laying the. blame for present con
ditions and the. alleged alliance of the
police with vice at the door of Mayor
illlnm 1 novnnv und ajklni- him t .1
resign. This announcement was made
today by Alderman Henry J. Curran; who,
with sixteen fellow members of the beard,
forced the mayor to start the aldermanlc
Investigation Into graft conditions here
"The people of this city have been so
outraged by the conduct of Mavor Gaynor
and Ids appointees," said Mr. Curran,
"that there Is now on foot a concrete
plan to circulate a huge petition to re
quest him to resign. Two men of repu
table character whom I know to be re
sponsible and honorable, have been to see
me about it. let me say that the pres
ent vice conditions have been brought
about bv the negligence, apathy, or worse,
of Gaynor appointees. We have been
cognizant of tilts shameful state of af
fairs for some time and the aldermanic
committee is to meet at 3 o'clock tomor
row afternoon to select counsel for the
investigation. There could net be an
illegal resort open in Greater New York
for ten days If Mayor Gaynor ordered
Police Commissioner Waldo to close it."
Following on this sensation New York
was awakened again by the laying hare
of a $1,000,000 graft corporation, rortned
to take care of the "genteel grafters'"
who would not stain their hands with
cash, but who took stock In this enor
mously proflta.ble company for their
share of tho boodlo of the city. William
J. Burns uncovered the new incorporated
graft scheme disguised as the "Moving
Picture Corporation." The grafters are
all known to Detective Burns
The corporation, capitalized at one mil
lion dollars, operates a chain of moving
picture houses through""!! Manhattan,
the Bronx and Brooklyn and even In out
laying suburban towns. It Is reaping a
tremendotjs harvest of nickels and dimes
which are split up among the highest
grafters in tho history of New York City
Burnn plans to show that the stock In
this moving picture organization was is
sued to nigh officials in the. city admin
istration as their share of police graft.
People who would not take money were
convinced that stock in this corporation
could not be traced If ever the matter
became public. In this way the higher
ups got their money in the profits from
this corporation, which bad an elastic
charter, and which covered every form of
vice in the city when the operatives de
sired to make It do so.
Then came another startling disclos
ure. A well-informed official of the city
government stated that a certain police
inspector, well known to all New York,
may join Pollee Lieutenant Charles
Becker within the Tombs In a few days.
This inspector will be charged, It Is said,
with instigating the murder of Herman :
Rosenthal, the charjfe on which Becker
is held. It Is conceded that Recker was
not alone In his operations and It In re
ported that th district attorney ha-s the
names of two inspectors a-nd one, civilian
who were interested with Becker In the
collection and distribution of tho graft
from the gambling bouses and the dives.
So far not a single politician h.is ap
peared In thlB graft tangl- thereby re
vealing an entirely different "system"
from those with which the Iyxow and
other Investigations have had to deal
In this present case the police have fixed,
enforced and collected their own graft
whereas In the past sonic politician or
politicians have been the go-betweens for
the gamblers and the police.
Those same offl-lals stated that Beck
er's share of graft for the past twelve
months had been not less than $108. f00
and It was learned this afternoon that
since Beekera arrest $D2.nnr har been
drawn from his deposits at various bunks.

pretation of the campaign contribution
and publicity law, that It Intends to for
bid candidates for the. house and senate
to advocate the election of any presiden
tial i andldate, is today a source of much
speculation among members of congress.
Many members who seek re-election,
particularly Republicans, and who Insist
that advocacy nf a presidential candidate
by congressional nominees is contrary to
the spirit of the measure, quote the fol
lowing In support of their contention:
"No candidate for representative In
congress or for senator of 'he United
States 'shall promise any office or posi

or to give" his support to any person for
any office or position for the purpose of
procuring the support of such person or
