He Mads Him Acknowledge That He Had llotuht a Vina Watch Cheap Srom Pawnbroker He Waa Also Intimate with MoNally, the Oreen-Uooda King. New York, Sept. lO.-The senate po lice investigating committee resumed Its sittings in the superior court room this morning." It Is now more than two months since the committee adjourned, The result of the evidence taken before the Lexow oommlttee was evidenced In the recent trials at the police head quarters, when four police captains were dismissed from the force, as well as several wardmen. The present session of the senate com mittee will not be, a long one, as it will last, It Is said, onfy .three days, when an adjournment will be taken until the week after the republican convention at Saratoga, September 18. Charles A. Hanley, a detective In the central office, was the first witness. "That's a fine watch you have," said Mr. Goff, as he took the witness' watch from the chain. "Where did you get this watch 7" "I bought It for $50 from Pawnbroker W. A. Glover. Glover told me it was an unredeemed pledge. The pawnbroker said he knew the person who pawned the watch." "The pawnbroker did not give back the watch to the owner?" asked Mr. Goff. "No, sir." "Now, is It not a fact that the poljce stand in with the pawnbrokers in such matters as stolen property that is pawn ed?" "I don't think so." "Isn't It a fact that the detectives are in collusion with the pawnbrokers and that the owners of stolen property have to pay the pawnbrokers the amount of money advanced?" "It Is not?" "Where did you get the watch you had before the present one?" "I bought it from a dealer on the Bowery." "What became of It?" "I pawned it at Steams', Thirty-first street between Broadway and Sixth avenue, for 360.' Mr. Goff questioned Detective Hanley as to his acquaintance with one Jimmy McNally. "McNally," said Hanley, "is a thief and a green-goods man. I arrested him on December 2, 1887. The case did not pass the police court." Hanley admitted being in McNally's room when two wardmen came In, two years after he had arrested him. "Then you admit your acquaintance with thieves? ' . i "YeB, buy they are useful to, ua in giving Information to the detective bureau." ' - "And all your detective- triumphs come from information supplied by thieves and ' criminals?" "Yes. sir," replied Hanley. The committee then elicited the fact that the owners seeking stolen property were Informed at the detective bureau that they could not recover their nroDertv unless they signed a card om-aDlnff tn Tin v nil advances. "f-N-,---0 - f " " t Lawyer Goff then made the witness admit that he only got out one search warrant for valuable property during his ten years' service. "In other wor"ds you compelled the owners to sign the cards?" "Well, the pawnbrokers would not give any help unless the cards were signed," was tian ley's reply. "Now Isn't it a fact the police get half of the money paid the pawnbroker by the owner?" "It is not." "Did you ever get any of the money?' "I have received a small compensation from the owner." v "The cards are sent out," queried Sen ator O'Connor, "so that the pawnbrok ers may come to the bureau and inform the police?" "Yes, sir." Hanley then stated that Mr. Thomas of Hoyt and Thomas (since dead) had once given him a little check for re covering stolen property. "Isn't there a provision in the penal code forbidding officers to accept pres ents for services?" "I don't know, sir." ! Here Mr. Goff confused the witness badly about the present from Mr. Thomas, after which he put in evidence rule No. 142 of the police department, which forbids officers receiving pres ents for the discharge of their duties. A recess was then taken. After recess Alonzo Sloane, a book maker, said he had been in the green goods business oft and on for eight years with Jim McNally. He had never paid the police for protection. He was a writer for the green goods men and was never arrested because he was warned to keep out of the way of the police. Abetter was read from Sloane to McNally in which Sloane rep rimanded McNally for writing to George Appo. The writer said he had left McNally for good, and said the machine and books were in Bridgeport The machine and books were the copy ing press and the addresses of the guys. Chairman Lexow asked the wit ness if the game could be worked in any other city save New York. "Yes, sir," he replied promptly, "both In Philadel phia and Chicago." Mr. Sloane was then allowed to leave the stand. J. W. Garfield, bookkeeper in Kirkpatrick's jewelry store, took his places. Mr. Goff handed him- the cash book of the concern and said: , 1 'I turn to the date January 11, 1892,, in the casn dok ana una. the name of Inspector Williams, $166. What does that mean?" " ; "That means that Inspector Williams bought articles of jewelry to the value of $165." W. H. Applegate then took the stand. He,satd he was a brother of Lou Ap plegate. " ' - ' -,?T " f "Where is your sister Lou now?" "She Is in Paris with Jim McNally." The witness testified that he got Into the green goods business after forming the acquaintance of Jim McNally and his brother Walter. vWltaess was em ployed by Harry Russell to fold circu lars. Some of the circulars were printed by Eugene Marvin, who kept a job office on Eighth avenue, and more of them by Joseph Morris Relnschrelber of Canul street The witness stated that the McNally gang met In a saloon at Elizabeth and Broome street.and also In ex-Alderman Pat Farley's present saloon at Grand street and the Bowery. At this point Relnschrelber entered the court room and Mr. Goff placed him on the stand. He testified that he would not print green goods circulars or anything of that oharacter because he knew It would be wrong. He had never seen Mc Nally and had never done any printing for McNally. A little later Mr.Goff showed the wit ness a letter and memorandum which showed that McNally had paid him $50 on account for work done. This occurred December 1, 1891 In a scared sort of way Relnschrelber tried to explain that he had received the money from a man named Walter. He did not know If It was his first name or his last name, or whether he had any other name at all. The man Just told him to make out a receipt to Walter, and was an entire stranger to the witness. Mr. Goff showed a receipt for $200, but Rein schrelber did not know anything about It. By this time the witness had grown pale, and writhed In his chair. It really got to be pitiful when Mr. Goff handed the witness a bill made out .In the writing of the witness containing reference to "sets" and all the rest of what Is used In green goods circu lars. Mr. Goff added the last straw when he first got the witness to Identify his sig nature to a letter without showing htm the contents, and then, having driven him into the last corner, read the letter. It was dated as late as March 1 last. In the letter the witness told how he had seen McNally. The witness came down with a crash, and Mr. Goff round ed off by saying: "Now what do you think of yourself, Mr.-Relnschrelber?' Relnschrelber hung his head. He then admitted that hetiad been print ing green-goods circulars for eight months up to March 1 last in fact. Then the committee put the threat It has made for perjury Into execution Mr. Jerome was directed to procure an Indictment against Relnschrelber, and he will probably be indicted to-morrow. William Applegate then resumed. He testified that McNally paid the police for protection. "We were informed by Jim McNally," said the witness, that we had to move uptown from Elizabeth street as the police were getting hot and the captain was changed. The captain was Meakln." Witness then described how he and McNally drove up- to the polloe station lr a carriage, when McNally went insist to see Mea kln. "McNally told me when he came out that he saw the captain and squared matters. He told me to go down to Hawkins' saloon and tell the boys to go right ahead." Witness then testified that he saw Captain Meakln, his wardman, Charl ton, McNally and Hawkins In a drug store on Eighth avenue the same even ing. VWhere did you go then?" "I went down to square matters with the tele grapher to receive messages and allow them to be sent to fictitious addresses, She was to receive $50 a mpnth for this service. Witness did not know her name, but said she lived over the office near One Hundred and Sixteenth street and Eighth avenue. Herbert Schroeder, who had charge of the telegraph office at Grand street and the Bowery, testified that in cases of fictitious addresses green-goods tele grams were sent in care of Alderman Farley and also to a Mr. Reid, an em ploye of McNally's. Frederick Foster, a lawyer, testified that he had com plained about the character of Hawkins' saloon to Police Commissioner McLea non on June 21, 1892. He noticed an improvement In the place after that. Applegate again took the stand. He Bald the green-goods men left Hawkins' saloon after being warned by Detective Charlton to keep away from the place, as there was too much noise. Charlton stood up in court and was identified by Applegate. "Did you ever pay money to police officers, police captains and wardmen while you were with McNally?" "Yes, sir, I did." Mr.Goff produced four small tin boxes which McNally used in the green-goods business. Applegate described how the dummy money was substituted for the genuine bills, after which .an adjourn ment was taken until to-morrow. CUT DOWX IX A FOG. The Steamer Portia Struck a SchoonO Which Sunk Almost Instantly. Vineyard Haven, Masa, Sept. 10. In coming; vessels report the sinking of the three-masted schooner Dora M. French of Bangor, Me., from Hoboken for Bos ton with coal by the steamer Portia of Liverpool, N. S., bound to New York at noon about one and one-half miles eaBt one-half south from Vineyard Sound Lightship, during a thick fog and fresh southwest wind. Captain Look of schooner F. G. French, who was In company with the unfortunate vessel, states that although he could not see the vessels when they collided on account of the fog,, the noise of falling spars and the . cries of the crew as the steamer crashed into her were something terrible. Captain Kelley of schooner William H. Card states that the French must have sunk instantly, as he passed so near as to see her crew struggling Jn the water and boats from the Portia were lowered In an endeavor to rescue them. ' A few minutes later as schooner Anna M. Dickinson passed the scene of the disaster the rescued seamen were being landed on board the Portia, which soon after proceeded for New; York. It was impossible to ascertain IX all were saved, ; , SALISBURY IS EXPELLED. 1TCAUHKHA GREAT HEXHATIOX ZK TROTTIXO CIRCLES, He la Ons of the Host Prominent Turfmen In the Country Owner of Famous Flyers. Men Greatly Surprised When Informed of What Had Keen Done. New York, Sept. 10. The grand cir cuit meeting at Fleetwood park closed to-day with a turf sensation, the fa mous horseman, Monroe Salisbury, hav ing been expelled from all trotting tracks In membership with the Nation al Trotting association. Salisbury's ex pulnlon came about In this way: He started Expressive In the 2:16 class Friday, and the race being un finished when darkness came on It was postponed until Saturday. Rain pre vented the conclusion of the contest that day and the Interested owners falling to come to an agreement re specting the division of the purse by which the race might have been de clared off It was again postponed until to-day. ' Mr. Salisbury had engagements for this week In Terre Haute, Ind., and he shipped Expressive west with his other horses on Saturday night. This was a gross violation of the rules of racing as well as an act of Insubordination, which amounted to an open defiance of all authority, provided Expressive was removed from the track without the consent of the judges of the race. It Is certain he did not have such permis sion up to the hour when the race was postponed, and Henry Hughes and John D. Barry, officials, both assert that Salisbury never had their permission to withdraw from the race. On the other hand two reputable and well known horsemen here say that Hughes yesterday told them he and Barry had given their consent to Ex presslve's withdrawal. This alleged con versation is denied by Hughes. The re moval was an expensive piece of busi ness for the betting fraternity for she had been well backed as one of the favorites and stood a fine chance, to win. When she failed to put In an ap pearance to-day the judges, upon being prompted as to their duties under the rules, declared her ruled out for non appearance at the post, and at the conclusion of the race, which was won Without difficult by Judge Austin, the announcement was made that Monroe Salisbury had been expelled. Turfmen consider the punishment just, provided tbe -officials were right as to the facts on which their action was based. But it is the prevailing be lief among turfmen here that Salisbury did not act without permission from some persbn In authority. The effect of the action will be to bar Mr. Salisbury from all tracks, but the horses which he owns or controls are not further af fected than that they cannot start again In his name or ownership. Every body expects to see him temporarily reinstated by order of President John ston, of the national association, with in forty-eight hours. Monroe Salisbury Is the most promi nent turfman connected with trotting. He has owned fast horses for twenty- five years and within three years has brought out such famous flyers as Fly ing Jib 2:04, Directum 2:05, Direct 2:05, Alix 2:05, Directly 2:10 Vin nette 2:09, Doc Sperry 2:09, and doz ens of other winners In the grand cir cuit. . Ha is now In Terre Haute. Terre Haute, Ind., Sept. 10. Monroe Salisbury, when informed of the action of the Judges at Fleetwood to-day In expelling him, was greatly surprised and said he did not see how any fair- minded man could have taken such an action. "The mare Expressive," said he, "had gone two heats in the race on Friday, Saturday it rainea ana there was no racing. I had my horses entered to start here and had to ship Saturday night. If I had left Expressive there she would have had no driver. I talked with Secretary Mason of the Fleetwood park, and there was a member of the association Murray, I think is his name and they said they did not think there would be any objection to my withdrawing the mare. Someone said there was a rule that prohibited the withdrawal, and I laughingly remarked that if that was so we would get the rule changed, because it was a foolish rule that would permit such an injust ice. If under it they could hold the mare over for another week they could hold her a month. However, Mr. Ma son said he would see the judges. Mr. McHenry, who was stopping at the same hotel, afterwards told me that Mr. Mason had said that he had con sulted two of the judges and they said it would go all right to ship the mare." Mr. Salisbury called up Mr. McHenry. who corroborated what had been said. Mr. McHenry said Mr, Masonn had told him that he had talked over the telephone with the two judges. Two Records Broken. SJpringfleld, Mass., Sept 10. R. S. Williamson of Holyoke lowered the class A flying start half-mile record this afternoon to 58 2-6 seconds, and George C. Smith of New York the class A unpaced quarter with standing start to 30 seconds. Will Bankrupt Boads. St. Paul, Sept. 10. The railways of Minnesota were given a disagreeable surprise to-day by the state railway and warehouse commission, which is sued an order cutting rates on all grain 16 per cent. The decision was in the case of Ellas Steenerson, who asked that the Gr,eat Northern Railway com pany be compelled to lower rates from Polk county to Duluth and Minneapolis.' The commission split itt ' The railways say the cut will bankrupt three of the largest grain roads. , - DEHH IH KIOKHtO. The Knlslita of Labor Offor II I m Moral and rlimiii'll Hnpport. Buffalo, Htpt. 10. The general execu tive board of thu K. of L., now In rea Blon here, to-dny passed a resolution endorsing President Debs of the A. It. V., offering him moral and financial support, also a resolution urging that the K. of L. assemblies to prepare charges against Attorney General ON ney forthwith, so that they may ! placed before coiiKress at Its next hih slon; and asking the assemblies to p proach all congressional nominees tn learn how they Intend to act on the Im peachment question. T. -B. McGulre, a member of the board, said: "The Knights will attempt to Impeach Mr. Olney for violation of article four section four, of the constitution, whlcji prescribes how and when United States troops shall be sent Into a stute. Troops can be ordered Into a state only In case of insurrection or rebellion and there was neither In Chicago when soldiers were ordered there to crush the American Railway union and aid the rallroadR. The anti-trust law un der which Mr. Olney Is empowered to Instruct district attorneys to prosecute all trusts has not been cj'iforced and Is another point against hltn. We expect to get the votes of enough members of the house with the populists, who are our friends to make a strong move against Olney." ALL HOYAI.TY H ILL EE THESE.
