Hon. Henry B. Cleaves, Portland, Me.:
The republican party came into power
In .Maine in 1856 by giving Hapnlbal
Hamlin 25,000 majority. Twice in the

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
"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," 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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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, ; ,
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
"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.
