CHIEF M'LAUGHLIH HAD HIS HAND OUT Skeletons In Closets of Millionaire and His $3.000000 Bride Will be Paraded Before the in quisitive Public The Sleuths Were Coarse. New York, May 30. Far over shadowing the domestic row between the Howard Ooulds thenrselves. Is the sensational and dramatic story that Is receiving remarkable additions every day. showing the scandalous part the New York City detective force has taken In behalf of Howard Could against his wife. The evidence that Commissioner Bingham is getting of the efforts of the city paid detectives to besmirch Mrs. Gould Is simply astounding. The disclosures alarm the ordinary citizen. The power of these servants tr the public Is startling, and opens up the question If the police detectives of other American cities are not also engaged in such nefarious work. The Bowery dramas and the 10- cent novels whose detectives are ever the welcome guests at the ultra exclusive homes of the members of the Four Hundred have heretofore been considered a bit yellow and mellow In tinge. Not a bit of it. They are true to life, hut it took Howard Gould to show that. Detectives In Case. District Attorney Jerome says "Bill McLaughlin is the wickedest man, the most vicious that has ever been In the police department," yet accord ing to Mrs. Gould, he was the honor ed guest at a dinner to which she was Invited. She InsltUs that she now knows that the sole abject for which one party was given was that she might come directly under McLuugh lin's Inquisitorial police eye. This dinner was given by members of the upper Fifth avenue set, and their chief gutxt begfii life as a patrolman. Detective Frank Peabody has spent days and nights and traveled hun dreds of miles at public expense to secure testimony for Howard Gould that his wife was the legal wife of another when she became his "five million dollar bride." "Jim" Vallely. another city detect ive, searched days before he got on the track of "Big Bill" Huwley. no torious swindler, who was supposed to know of a former marriage of Katherine Clemmons. other detec tives on the city pay roll followed Mrs. Gould wherever she went. The Goulds as a family have on more occasions than one called upon the services of the New York detec tive bureau. This association dates bin k even to the days of old Jay Gould. Zelln icolaui Incident. A previous notable example was in 1S1I3 when Zella Nicoluus. a hand some girl, sued George Gould for $4iI.iicpo. She claimed that a check for this amount had been given her by the oldest son of the Gould family under peculiar circumstance. Iater the giver of the check destroyed it, and she asked the court to aid her in the collection of her debt. The case never came tt trial. The gill was taken to police head quarters, where she was put through the terrifying "third degree." and finally given the choice of exile or Jail. As fhe was friendless she chose the former, and started Immediately for Europe. Later she began another action and received, it is said, $10,000 in settlement of It. , It was at this time that George Gould became acquainted with Mc Laughlin. George Gould's appeal to him in 1S9S, at the time of his broth er Howard's first infatuation for the California actress, was not in vain. There was a police effort at that time to prove that Katherine Clemmons was marrying without securing a di vorce from a husband to whom she was legally bound. "Big Biil" Hawley declares that it wa.s at this time that an effort was made to get him to say that he knew of Mrs. Gould's former marriage. He was In Dannemora prison at that time, and he not only was to receive $1110,00(1 for his sworn affidavit but pardon. Neck former Marriage Keoord. Although Mis. Gould has always In sisted that she was never married but the once, the detectives have hunted for a man by the name of Dawson.

Theodore Roosevelt, President of the United States to Herbert T. Hagerman, Deposed Governor of New Mexico Setting Forth a Few Matters of Importance to the People of This Territory Which All Should Know and Which Have Been Denied and Suppressed By Hager man and His Supporting Papers. A FEW SINS OF The Citizen has waited patiently for ex-Gov. Herbert J. Hagerman or the Albuquerque Morning Journal, which stand for the so-called good government administration which he originated, to publish the facts In connection with Mr. nagerman's re tirement from office. Probably because they feared to have the real state of affairs known both have steadfastly refrained from any mention of the president's letter to the boy executive, in which he states clearly and concisely the truth nf the New Mexico political situation and his reasons for summarily re questing Mr. Hagerman to resign. The letter Is r.'.9o of deep Interest to the people of New Mexico since it places the new governor. Captain George Curry, in the proper light, and at the same time disproves the at tempts of the Morning Journal and other antl-republlcan papers, to make It appear that Captain Curry Is not an honest -upright, capable man. The letter, which Mr. Hagerman ami the Morning Journal feared to show the light of day. Is as follows. It needs no comment: The 1Cttcr. Washington, D. C. Muy 1. 1907. My Dear Mr. Hagerm-.i: Mr. Glfford Plnchot has presented to me your telegram ti him In which you ask that it be (brought to my per sonal attention, stating that hundreds of people have sent telegrams to the president protesting against my ac cepting your resignation, and stating furthermore that If my action in re questing your resignation Is not re voked it will ' be a cnlamlty to the territory, and that if 1 will reconsider this action you ar pejitive I will see the Injustice Hr1 m Srldom of It from every point ol vrfu". ' ' ' Wrote Plainly. This renders it necessary for me to write you very plainly. You made, as 1 am Informed, a good secretary of legation at the court of St. Peters burg. All that I have heard of your private life Is to your credit. Fur thermore, I believe that you have done certain excellent things while you were governor; and of course I will permit nothing good that you have done to be undone. But I must aibl that as a whole I think you have been an mi-satisfactory governor and that your removal rrom the position is imperatively demanded. If it were not for my knowledge of your pre vious career and of your standing In private life, and my consequent re luctance to believe thnt your motives were as Improper as certain of your acts would Indicate, I should have re moved you Instead of requesting your resignation. I have not thought it necessary to go Into any matters as to which there wa.s any chance of controversy, und the department of Justice has been as unxious as I have been to show you all consideration, and to resolve every doubt In your favor. Assistant Attorney General Cooley in his report purposely omit ted, as he Informed me. the Inference which he believes ought legitimately to be drawn from the facts that In the land grant transactions, wherein I believe your conduct was blame worthy, you were actuated In your Improper and presumably unlawful action by your desire to secure the aid of certain democratic politicians iu the faction fight. I decided that In this matter I would give you tne benefit of the doubt, and so as to vour uetion in appointing six mem bers of the legislative council to lucrative positions, although there seemed to me no moral doubt that this amounted to the bartering of offices by you in return for legislative support. As for the hundreds of per sons who have telegraphed me on vour account, I cannot say that I have seen all of the telegrams, but I have seen a great many of them. I have received an even larger number from persons In New Mexico who protested against your retention In office. I have also received numerous statements to the effect that neither set of telegrams was really spontane ous. There has been no single in stance In which the appointment of Mr. Curry as your successor has not received hearty commendation. I acts suflliii'iit. I found that it was not necessary lo consider anything save Assistant At torney General Cooley'a letter, from the department of Justice. Tills sets forth a state of facts which your per sonal explanations, when before me, In no way relieved, and which make It impossible, Iu my Judgment, to re tain you iu oftice unless I am content to abandon all Idea of holding publb: officers in New Mexico, or indeed elsewhere, to any proper standard of otticial conduct. This report from the department of Justice related to your delivery of certain deeds to the Pennsylvania, Development company. P. appears that the grant of laud, which was agreed to before you be came governor, was on Us face gross ly fraudulent; and that the transac tion could not be completed sake by your action, made with full knowl edge of its fraudulent character. An investigation into the matter of these New Mexican land grunts had been made hj ihe .secretary of the interior and submitted to congress. The chairman of the committee on public iai.-ls -if the house. Hon. John V. 1... mi May IT. lK'iti, wrote to the secretary nf the interior that til- pro posed grant would lie a violation of liw; the patricular grant referred to being. a the secretary of the inter ior el'r rally Mated, In all e.-sentia! le.-pccts the same as the giant '-'U con mi in ma led. Pisir lieu. V"U statu that this document Was lover officially called to your attention, but it appears that you certainly bad knowledge of It when you u'-U'i; and it further ap pear that the cofiiiiiisnioner of pub lic lands, in view of the report, ex lTescd his UiiIHi"8nv.s4 to deliver SO CALLED GOOD GOVERNMENT the deeds to the representative of the Pennsylvania Development com pany, Mr. Hopewell. It was his bust, ness, and not yours, and you could only act In his absence; though of course you could have removed him. If you had been willing to remove him, for refusing lo take the Im proper and fraudulent action which In his absence '-you took on his be half. You, however, obtained an opinion from the attorney general (the same gentleman whom the newspapers report as now organizing meetings to ask for your retention in office), which opinion Mr. Cooley rightly stigmatizes as "an absurdity." for as Mr. Cooley says, It Is only ex plicable on the ground, either that the attorney general thought that there w'aa no absolute evidence of a violation of the law (a conclusion which it was Inconceivable he could have reached or that you could have reached), or else that as there were difficulties attendant upon the en forcement of the law you should go out of your way to violate It. You took advantage of the absence of the commissioner of public lands on of ficial business to go yourself with the attorney general, Mr. Held, to his oftice and yourself complete the transaction. Would Not Walt. It was there suggested to you by a clerk In the lank office that the matter should be delayed until the commissioner could be com municated with, as If you wired him it would be possible to get him back in Santa Fe inside of two days. You refused to permit this delay; although there was absolutely no reason what ever for such refusal on your part. You directed the clerk to compute the amount due as payment of the prin cipal und Interest, and then asked him to deliver the deeds, to which he replied that he had no power to do so and that the seal had not been af fixed to twenty-three of them. You then directed him to bring all the papers to your oftice, together with the seal of the board of public lands, and In the presence of the clerk and of Mr. Hopewell, the ibenerlclary of your grossly Improper and prooably unlawful conduct, you affixed the seals to the twenty-three deeds, and handing them to Hopewell, asked If he considered that a delivery. Hope well replied that he did, and handed them back to you with the request that they be recorded on the deed records of the commissioner of pub lic lands. You handed them to the clerk with instructions to have them recorded and these Instructions were carried out. The deeds were return ed to you and you bunded them t the attorney of the Pennsylvania De velopment company. You accepted from Mr. Hopewell his personal check for $11,113.74, which you subsequent ly deposited In the oftice of the com missioner of public lands. The de partment of Justice reports that: lllcgul and IniroM'r. "It seems entirely clear that Gov ernor Hagerman's action was both Il legal and Improper. "The act of congress of June 21, 1898, and section 1. chapter 74, laws of New Mexico, 1899, supra, clearly made the contract Illegal at the time Governor Hagerman alleges It was entered Into. The delivery of tho deeds could not have been enforced by the grantees, or by the Pennsyl vania Development company, which was not a party to the contract. The governor hud every reason to believe, owing to his correspondence with the secretary of the Interior, that the transaction was of very doubtful le gality, In spite of the opinion of the attorney general. It was clearly his duty, in my Judgment, to withhold delivery of the deeds and let the mat ter be tested In the courts if the grantees named in the deeds saw fit to mandamus the commissioner of public lands. His action In usuiping the duties of the commissioner in his absence was both Illegal and unjusti fiable. It was entirely competent for him to enforce the carrying out of his wishes by administrative methods, lu removing a public official and ap pointing In his place some one In! sympathy with his policies, but it was neither legal nor Justifiable to adopt the course he did." Hut Ono Course. With the ubove statement I entire ly agree. If I permit such an act by the highest ofliobr in the territory to go unpunished, I can not hold to ac count any subordinate oftlciul for any infraction of his duly. It was a grave question in my mliiil whether 1 might not to remove you Insiainl of meit'ly asking )imr rej-lgaiailon. 1 rt-solvol ' I lie doubt in your favor and request- (si your resignation. liult-r no cir I ciiuisUtmv would 1 reconsider Ibis I uetion. 1 Secretary Hoot has handed me a' ! long telegram from your father, in ' i which lie states that he wishes ine to1 I delay iny action on your resignation j until you have had time to answer; ; the chaigts made against you, which I 'lie further states are well known to he unfounded, and made. by party! jfreehooters to restore themselves l- ' i power.

As to the charges ne by Inference makes against others, I can only say that any facts that he will give me against anyone I will consider if I have the power to do so. Charge of a very grave character were made to me against your father himself In connection with his land transactions In the past. Whether they were true or not I can not say, because a preliminary investigation showed that action on them would be barred by the statute of limitations. About Curry. . No one suggested to me the ap pointment of Captain Curry s your Successor. The idea was my own, because I wished under the extraor dinary circumstances In New Mexico to And some man whom I personally knew and whose uprightness, strength of character and knowledge of the people and the circumstances I could have entire confidence. Cap tain Curry was one of the best men in my regiment. He has been away from New Mexico for eight years, so that he Is In no shape or way Identi fied with any factional trouble there in. I do not even know his politics. During these eight years he has done distinguished military and civil serv ice In the Philippines, not only hav ing shown great gallantry In action, but marked administrative ability when In charge of the Manila police force and afterwards In various other positions, Including that of governor In the provinces. As far as I know there has been universal approval In New Mexico of his choice; and ap proval of the choice of Captain Curry as governor Is incompatible with the existence-on tlvt part of those ap proving It of either the hope or the desire to see crooked methods obtain In the New Mexican government.
