JUSTICE CRM'S
PHONE WIRE TAPPED
Discovery Leads to Break
down of Nassau County
Ring's Grapevine.
PLANT TO LIFT LIT) OFF
One Official Reported to Be
Missing as Result of
'Threatened 'Squeal.'
DECOY MESSAGES I'SED
Confirmation of Phone Tam
pering Said to Have Boon
Confirmed by Them.
The atmosphere of suppressed ex
citement that has marked the abode of
officialdom in Nassau county since
County Detective Carman Plant pleaded
guilty Friday to a charge of receiving
stolen property and threatened to re
veal the .names of others of the Nas
sau county "corruption ring" was not
abated over Sunday.
Plant is to appear to-morrow before |
the Grand Jury, and has intimated
1 hat he will lift the lid off a brewing
not of scandal that will startle Long
Island from one end to the other. One
?well known Nassau county oiflcial said
to be involved In the disclosures Plant
will mako was reported missing yes
terday, and it was said he had gone on
an intensive hunt for legal advice and
a frantic foraging for counsel fees.
The timely discovery l>y Supreme
Court Justice James C. Cropsey and
District Attorney Charles R. Weeks of
Nassau county that their telephone
wires had been lapped was responsible,
according to gossip in Mineola yester
day, for a breakdown in the Intelligence
system of the ring. It was known that
since Plant indicated an intention to
"squeal" much concern has been ex
hibited in certain quarters about just
liow much or how little Plant may
know of the operations and identity of
the gang of thieves and gamblers that
have been running wild in Nassau for
months.
w betting of Curiosity.
Yesterday the discredited County Do-j
tectlve meditated in the Mineola Jail
about mmc of bis experiences of the
past He has let friends know that he
feels keenly what be believes amounts
to a desertion of himself in time of
trouble by persons toward whom he felt J
Justified In looking for material assist- ;
ancc. Just whom *and how many of j
these Plant intends to involve In his
contemplated "squeal" is what is Whet
ting the curiosily of all Nassau county.
The cri dit for breaking down the In
telligence system seems by common con
sent. to go to Justice Cropsey and Dis
trict Attorney Weeks. Tt was Justin
Cropsey, It was said yesterday, who dis
covered that the confidential communica
tions issuing over the telephone wires
between his office and that of the Dis
trict. Attorney were not as confidential
as they should have been. He made the
discovery the .second day of his investi
gation of Nassau county affairs at
Mineola and let it be known last Fri- j
day while he was grilling George C.
Hyde, Deputy Commissioner of Jurors.
"There is no privacy, here," Justice
Cropsey said. "Even t he walls have
ears. "Hie so-called underground system
of the New York Police Detriment
doesn't equal the system here."
Troof that the telephone wires of both
the Justice and the prosecutor have been
tampered with Is said to have been con- (
firmed through the use of decoy mes
sages that were said to have sent mem
b> rs of the ring belter skelter on wild
goose chases.
(notions Procedure.
Tt w.is said yesterday, however, that
fbese underground channels had been
tapped In vuln since Friday If effort
had been made to learn what the ex
tent of Plant's forthcoming revelations
Is likely to be. If Mr. Weeks and Jus
tlra Cropsey have discussed a possible
policy in the light of Information ex
jpected to come from Plant and to be
given to the Grand Jury they have
been careful not to do so over the
telephone. Their exchanges have been
inorn carefully conducted
Plant Is alleged to have, had a ron
nectlon with a ring of automobile
thieves on Long Island that did a brisk
and profitable business In stolen cam.
The ring Is said to include tnxic.ib
chauffeurs and expert drivers whose par
ticular function It was to steal a car
mid drive It to the garage which was
the headquarters for the "fence." There
the car was dismantled, painted, engine
number changed and otherwise con
certed and sent on to another member
of the ring, who saw to Its final dis
position or sale, preferably to ?ome one
from New Jersey, Connecticut or even
further away.
Just how much Plant knows of the
Identity of the "men higher up" In
the automobile thieves' ring and their
connection with the gnmhllng and boot
legging gang Is what Is interesting
Nassau roiinty a( the moment. There
are some who declare that Plant Is
hinting at a lot nbout which he has
no real Information or not enough to
prove of value to the police.
These persons say that Plant al
ways has shown a disposition under cer
tain circumstances to talk, and that for
this reason never has been In the full
est confidence of the gang. There are
others, however, who predict that If the
former detective opens up there will be
some scared persons In that particular
part of Long Island.

SOLDIER BONUS SHARKS
LOSE BY THEIR OWN GREED
Ruling of Adjutant-General Makes Void Discharges
From Army That Have Been Transferred?
Original Holder May Get the Money.
* Almost on the eve of the distribution |
of the iState soldier bonus it has become
known that a coterie of loan sharks in
Brooklyn an<i up-State counties, who,
imitating the pension discounters of civil
war days, have been doing a thriving
business with the ex-soldiers, now stand
to lose thousands of dollars. The grand
"clean up" which they had been plan
ning Jias been made impossible by a
ruling of the State Adjutant-General,
which voids a discharge once it leaves
the hiinds of the person to whom it was
issued.
Soon after the bonus had been voted
by a State wide referendum last autumn
the loan sharks got busy. They foundj
that thousands of former soldiers were
out of work and needed money. Feelers
were sent out, and soon the veterans be
gan to appear prepared to accept almost
anything the money lender was willing,
to give him. Men who had served from
seventeen to twenty months and are en
titled to from |170 to $200 would sur
render their discharge to the loan shark
for $150.
It was the plan of the loan shark to
gather in as mitny discharges as pos
sible and harvest when the bonus was
HYLAN IS TO DELVE
INTO SCHOOL AFFAIR
All Departments of City Gov-!
eminent re Subject to
Legislative Probe.
While the legislative committee for
the investigation of the Hylan admin- |
istration has seized records so far only
from those departments which have
had such unsavory publicity as to in
dicate the possible existence of matters
worthy of the committee's attention, i
the committee will seek data from all J
the other city departments just as soon j
as its organization is perfected. Senator I
Schuyler M. Meyer, chairman, an- !
nounced yesterday.
Senator Meyer expects the work to |
be going full head very soon. Thej
committee will move into its quarters ;
at 38 Park Row to-day and begin the i
assembling of a staff. The Senator j
expects public hearings to begin about ;
the middle of June, by which time ]
former Senator Elon R. Brswn, coun- j
sol, will have cleared up his private
business.
The departments visited to date by
committee representatives are the Police
Department, the otHce of the Com
missioner of Accounts and the office of
the Borough President of Queens, all
of which have been in the limelight
through the activities of investigating
bodies or ottlciais of one sort and an
other.
Where the committee will turn next
is a question which is interesting more
than one city department head. Should
the committee follow the course set
so far, it would appear not unlikely that
the next move may be in the direction
of the Hylan appointed Board of Edu
cation, the Finance Department, the
City Chamberlain, or perhaps the Board
of Aldermen. Regarding all of those
departments there has been talk of in
ofticiency and wilful overstepping of
authority in the spending of public
money, and the Board of Aldermen re
cently has been made conspicuous
through the investigations of the Lock
wood committee. *
The intimate connection of Leonard
M. Wallstein with both the Loekwood
and the Meyer committees led yesterday
to the suggestion that ap excursion by
the Meyer committee into Aldermante
conditions revealed by the Loekwood
committee is far from Improbable.
The charges and counter charges
which have passed between the Board
of Education and Comptrolor Charles
L. Craig, and between the Comptroller
ind the City Chamberlain, none of
which lias been sifted by an investiga
tion. are expected to occupy the atten
tion of the committee.
It 1h reported that whether the Comp
troller anticipates or hopes for such a
move he holds In the archives of the
Finance Department a great mass of
documentary data which the committee
probably would be permitted to scrutin
ize without the necessity of a raid.
GIRL KILLED BY A TRAP GUN.
\Vnrkmrn Afterward Too Supersti
tions to Itnze Handing.
Harbor Spkings, Mich., May 15.?The
steamer America, with a full scowload
j of wreckage from the resort hotel at
| Beaver Island, has arrived here. Tills
hotel has been razed by the Ottawa
number Company to protect Its lien on
; the building.
About two years ago a caretaker on
the island became annoyed at th? hotel
i>elng frequently entered and set a Run
so that any one opening the door would
cause It discharge. Miss Cole, daughter
of Garret Cole, with friends out for a
walk, started to enter the hotel and re
1 reived the contents of the shotgun In
the ttbdomen, the wound causing her
death two weeks lat- r. Bloodstain* were
still on the threshold.
The lumber company attempted to
secure men among the islanders for the
work of tearing down the building, but
being of a superstitious nature not a
man among them would enter the build
ing. It was necessary to take a crew of
I men from Harbor Springs for the work.
OLD CROW BRINGS $2,000.
Winner of Muffle Opens Case nml
Kinds Monster.
Chicago, May 15. ? Prohibition en
forcement officials were stirred to ac
tivity when they learned that the mem
bers of a prominent secret organization
had raffled off a case of "fine Old

after due Inquiry returned to headquar

ffo well and so secretly had the raffle
been advertised that the proceeds
amounted to $'.',000, which Is a consider

distributed. The soldiers, under the
scheme, were to make application, re
ceive tile money and then turn it over
to the lender, but it now develops that
the discharge is made void by the trans
fer. That does not mean that the for- <
mer soldiers will not get his bonus, but
does mean that the lender loses the har
vest he -had been reckoning on.
A soldier who has lost, mislaid or as
signed his discharge can obtain a service
certificate from the Federal Government
which he can use to obtain the bonus.
If he then elects to settle matters with
the loan shark that is a matter in which
the State lias no interest, but the money
lender cannot compel him to pay a
bonus for the loan.
The Adjutant-General and the Ameri
can Legion also have taken steps to curb
a possible activity of "shyster" lawyers'
when the former soldiers start to make
out/their applications. The iLegion espe
cially is interested in the matter and!
will establish bureaus where the former
service men can obtain the best legal in
formation free. As for the Adjutant
General. his activity will consist mainly
In seeing that the applicants are not
made to pay more than the legal fee for

GERMAN COMMUNISTS
GET STERN SENTENCES
Death or Prison for Men Con
victed of Rioting.
Berlin', May 13.?Communists con
victed of participating in the rceent
riiotlng in central Germany received
sentences ranging from one hour in Jail
for disturbing the peace to death for
murder.
One man was convicted of murder
and sentenced to death, and the trial.,
proceeding on other counts as required
by German law, he was further sen
tenced to twenty years' imprisonment
for manslaughter, to ten years for rob
bery, six hours in jail for disturbing the
peace and was deprived of the rights of
citizenship "for the remainder" of his
life." Scores of the Communists were
sentenced to prison for terms varying
from one to five years.
About 3,000 cases were tried by spe
cial courts appointed for the purpose
and which paid particular attention to
the prisoners who were of Russian ex
traction, for the uprisings were charged
by officials to be the direct work of
Bolshevik agitators.
The majority of the men convicted
heard their sentences quietly, but some
young German workmen fell upon their
knees and wept, saying they had been
"seduced into the fighting" by argu
ments of clever men and that they did
not understand the movement was di
rected toward tho overthrow of the
Government.

London, May 4.?The "sex frenzy"
of American films imported Into England
and, more important, British colonies
has aroused a strong feeling of resent
ment here. While America is generally
looked upon as the land with racial
problems. England, too, lias that prob
lem. and it is the danger of complications
in this respect that has caused much of
the antiputhy toward American films.
.Referring to the "Alms showing white
women iti a state of saml-nudlty, with as
little of the semi-diacernible as the pro
ducers dare screen," Lionel Phillips,
F. R. G. S., says:
"This may not do a great amount of
harm in a white man's country, hut I
cannot think that the rulers of India,
more especially in times like the present,
are likely to find their task made easiet
by white women exposing as much o:
themselves as they dare for natives t<>
gaze at when they patronize the picture.-.
How prevalent tills type of film is an<
how assiduously its export to India i?
boomed may bu Judged from a glance
any illustrations of the films."
Mr. Phillips says the American Aim
business is fraught with harmful results
to this country and India. He Is a large
exporter of films to all parts of the Brit
ish Empire and he thinks public atten
tion should be drawn to "the very un
desirable type of American film brazenly
advertised as suitable for exhibition to
the natives of India."
Agitation Spreads Rnpltll>.
Agitation against American films isj
spreading rapidly because of this "sat- j
urnalia of sex," as one writer calls It.
American films have been very popular
here, and still are for that matter, but
there Is a growing danger that in a not
distant future they will lose much of
their following. American picture stars
and producers do much better work than
is shown by European made films, und
it is a fact that the favorite at home are
almost as popular here, which was per
haps best illustrated by the reception ac
corded Douglas Fairbanks and Mary
Pickford when they visited London. But
attacks by the press here and the will- [
lngness shown to publish attacks by
readers threaten to hurt the American
film business abroad.
The New York correspondent of the
Weekly Dispatch, one of London's lead
ing Sunday papers, speaks of the latest
films shown in New York as follows:
"Sex appeal, sex interest in every con
ceivable guise, dominate almost without
exception the principal films of note at
present before the public or advertised
to be shown in the next few weeks.
In most of them reticence, even common
decency, is at a discount; in many the
sex element is deliberately worked up
by every imaginable means to the high
est pitch.
"It even enters the latest Mary I'ick
ford picture, though It is so crudely
handled as to be merely ridiculous, and
an almost frenzied exaggeration of the
1 gures even the otherwise heau
?"f'th tllni, "Way Down East';
but ic the hands of the less cultured
members of the producing fraternity the
sex frenzy becomes poslively nauseat
ing Even first class house? are show
ing film plays with such titles as "Secret
Sin" and "Forbidden Fruit," depicting
hectic midnight revels that leave nothing
to the imagination In any scene In mar
riage. honeymoon or love, illicit or other
wise."
I.urld Advertisements Cllrd.
Criticism also Is heard her* of adver
tisements of American films, such as
"Covered with Kisses" as a caption, and
then: "This pretty girl, so unlike his
wife, her eyes lighted with love flames,
smiling wantonly, made him feel his life
melted to a happy sigh, all the world
his in one warm kiss." Another quarter
million dollar film is heralded here,
quoting the American producers, as "Her

Archduke Escapes Mob
After Palace Is Stoned
?yiESNNA, May 15.?Archduke
Rainer of Hapsburg was the
recipient yesterday of unpleas
ant attentions on the part of
workmen when his presence in
the palace at Hertenstein, near
Vienna, became known. Stones
were thrown through the win
dows and his expulsion was de
manded 01 the authorities. Mean
while the Archduke made his es
cape disguised as a workman.
husband drew the girl to him. A long,
long kiss, a kiss of love, youth, beauty,
all concentrating Into one focus, where
heart and soul senses In concert move,
and blood Is lava, pulse ablaze."
The London critics, who heretofore
have been amused, now write warnings
with information that these tilms are
going to countries for which England
Is responsible where the people are not
white. Benjamin Hampton, writing in
the Pictorial It' vo te, says that the pro
ducers stag*' these scenes under the guise
of Y*form" and "uplift," and adds: "To
put over a play simply filled with *
appeal under the guise of uplift drama
is the furthereat point north in motion
picture strategy."
Major Charles Moss, writing In the
Sunday Timrit, says : "1 know something
of the Indian temperament, and, while
not wishing to pose as a moralist, I can
readily see that the Aiming of semi-nude
white women in India can only create
an entirely adverse opinion of the white
race and have a demoralizing effect upon
the minds of the native population.
Surely, the responsible authorities can
? that good, wholesome British Alms
ire shown instead of the trashy Ameri
iii 'stuff' to which attention has been
ailed."
Another critic. George A. Lewis, sees
a deep American plot In it all. He says:
"Another aspect of the question which
has come up In vfew of the present
trouble In India Is the possibility of these
productions being designedly shown for
the purpose of undermining British in
fluence In that country by reason of the
bad Impression created In the native
ir.lnd rogardlng our morals."
LESS BEGGING NOW, BUT
MORE THEFS IN FRANCE
Crime Among Women and
Children More Than Doubled.
Paris, irtiy 7.?There is SO per cent,
less begging In France than before 19H,
according to police statistics, but theft
has increased In about the same propor
tion. The police explain this pheno
menon by saying that the temptation con
stantly heltl out to the gayly Inclined to
enjoy themselves appeals to those who
cannot afford it as well as to those that
can.
Criminality among women and chil
dren haa notably increased. Among a
hundred persons found guilty of crime
before the war there were twelve women
and five minors; there are now thirty
women and fourteen minors in every
hundred convicted. Besides the temp
tation to have a good time, tha police
say. sensational moving pictures have
had a good deal to do with the develop
ment of crime among women and chil
dren.
Cases of assault and battery and
other offences which are largely cred
ited to alcoholism ha?- decreased. This
Is attributed to the suppression of ab
sinth and the abstemious habits ac
quired when war time restrictions made
it impossible to drink at all hours of the
day.

Washington, Pa., May 14.?The death
here to-day In a hospital 'from gunshot
wound of James Edward McCaugharn of
Columbus, Ohio, one of the three bandits
who conducted a running battle with the
police last Tuesday in which fifty shots
were exchanged and in which Constable
Milton Ow. ns was wounded, brought to
an end a notorious yegg's long career,
according to Columbus, Ohio authorities.
McGuughran died from a wound in
flicted by Otto Liuellen, Chief of Police.
All three bandits were identified as
members of a gang who are wanted in
Columbus for highway robbery, burglary
and automobile thel't.
McGaughran came of a well estab
lished family in Columbus, and two of
his sisters were with him when he died.
He refused to name tin. crimes for which
be was wanted in Ohio, telling the offi
cers that he would "die in the dark."
Columbus police assert that AIcGaugh
ran was a widely known "two gun" man,
and that Paul Kejley, one of his compan
ions, who is still at large, was the brains
of the expedition which resulted in the
street fight here. They bear out state
ments that the trio went to Pittsburgh
to get a supply of whiskey. Following
their failure to "connect" with the
"whiskey gangs" the trio In a stolen au
tomobile came through Washington on
their way back to Ohio.
Chief Luellen has not been arrested
because of McGaugliran's death, and a
coroner's Jury is expected to return a
verdict of justifiable homicide.
