Boston 'Slave' Auctioneer Will
Be Thrown Out if He
En tors.
Promises a Bread Line at
Cooper Union and a 'Sale'
of Jobless.
Although t rbaln J. Ledoux of the
"Churoh of the Unemployed," who put
jobless men on the block in Boston
Common, announced before leaving for
New York that the first 350 unemployed
he gathers up here will be cared for In
St. Mark's Ohapel, the rector, the Rev.
Paul Nalencz, said emphatically yester
day the chapel would not be open to
3Utr. Ledoux and that he had arranged
to have the police throw him out If he
should attempt to us?5 the East Tenth
street church. A patrolman and two
plain clothes men were on duty there
all yesterday afternoon and evening.
Mr. Nalenes said he disapproved of
Mr. Ledoux's methods, and charged him
with unjustly attempting to take credit
to himself for relief which was extended
to the unemployed in St. Mark's Chapel
last winter.
I-oiloux arrived in New York yester
day morning. He visited Bryant Park
first, where the police stopped him from
distributing doughnuts among the men
gathered there. He looked over the
Bowery, and announced that If UPM)
further investigation he finds the situa
tion here warrants It he may auction
both men and women, despite the an
nouncement of city officials that the
"slave market" will not be -countenanced.
He will be in Bryant Park this after
noon, Intends to look over the water
front to-night, and announces ho will
start a bread l!pe at Cooper Union to
morrow morning at 11 o'clock.
Bird S. Coler, Public Welfare Com
missioner, made a plea yesterday for the
< ooperation of employers with the re
cently formed Industrial Aid Bureau, at
which he Is chairman. The bureau, n*
said, will open offices at 129 Worth
street to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock.
All classes of labor will be enrolled.
Mayor Hylan made public a Jotter
designating the purposes of Business
Kevival Week as follows:
"During this week inducements mlsht
be offered to buyers and purchasers from
all over the country to visit this city
and vlace ordtrs, citizens offer induce
ments to buy, hotels and railroads make
reduced rates and the merchants of the
city, both wholesale and retail, offer dis
counts and Inducements."
The Mayor's letter was directed to
Commissioner <"oler In reply to a com
munication from him stating that busi
ness and unemployment are growing
worse, and thiit the cooperation of tne
city's government and citizens are
needed by the Industrial Aid Bureau.
Berryman of England Says Term Means 'Undesirable
Person' and He Demands $10,000 of Paul Ed
wards, Ally of the Chile Guggenheims.
A "rotter," according to Mr. Funk of
Funk & Wagnalls?or It may have been
according to Mr. Wagnalla?is "slang.
Eng.," and its most common meaning ia
"an undesirable person." Tho late Mr.
Webster gets a little bit harsher and
calls a "rotter" a "worthless person."
So when Raul ETdwards called Capt.
Berryman that, and, moreover, added
that lie was a "perfect rotter," the Cap
tain got sore. The result was the filing
yesterday with the Supreme Court of a
summons and complaint In a suit for
$19,000 damages. Capt Berryman'* full
r.ame is William Oawald Berryman. lie
is an Englishman, visiting at present In
this country. Irving E. Burdick of 43
Cedar street is his counsel.
Mr. Edwards is a scion of a family
allied with tho Guggenheim and other
coppef Interests in Chile, which Is re
puted to be among that country's
wealthiest families. It was founded by
Englishmen who wont there many yoars
ago. Raphael Edwards?Raul being
Spanish for Raphael?lived tome time
ago at 222 Riverside Drive and waa
listed as manager of the Chilean State
Railway. His present whereabouts are
secret, however, service having been ac
cepted for him by John W. doff, Jr.. hi?
Says Mr. Edwards to a certain Mrs.
Zell. according to the <omplalnt: "Capt.
Berryman 1s a perfect rotter." Says he,
furthermore, that he was anxious to see
a certain Mrs. Cornell, who was acting
as Capt. Berryniaji's hostess, and tell
her what a "perfect rotter he had found
Capt. Beryymaxi to be." This, It is al
leged, occurred on August 16 last.
The news reached Mrs. Cornell, Capt
Berryman recites, but whether through
Mr. Edwards or Mrs. Zell the complaint
does not state. When it did Mrs. Cor
nell ceased to receivfc him as her gu?st.
The use of the choice and ancient
English expression "rotter," Capt Ber
ryman contends, meant a good deal
nitre than American lexicographers put
Into the word. In the Captain's opinion,
expressed In the complaint, it was in.
tended to convey that he was "not a per
i-oii of honesty and Integrity, and an un
suitable person to have social inter
course with."
The lawyers for both principals could
not be reached yesterday.
