He con fessed tbe charge and was locked up ip the Federal Building. Flinn's route is in tbe southwestern part of the city. For some time the res idents along his route have been com plaining of losing money in the mails. Inspector Maxwell set at work on the complaints. This morning he sent out decoy letters, placing marked money in them in the presence of a witness. On the return of Flinn from his 10 o'clock collection and after depositing the let ters which be had collected from tbe var ions boxes, he was called into the office of Postmaster Stewart as be was about to leave tbe office for bis home. Inspector Maxwell W*« In The office, along with another secret service man. After Flinn bad entered. Mr. Maxwell stated that complaint! had been made of money in letters disappear ing on bis route. Flinn declared he had no knowledge of how roch could be. Then Mr. Maxwell put this question to him, "What have you* in your pockets?' "I have three cents/' replied Flinn. "Put Them on the Table. "Now what else have yon?"* "Nothing," said Flinn emphatically "It is very unpleasant for me, bnt If you do not turn out what you have I must search you," and tbe (inspector pro ceeded to make goodhis assertion. "No you won't" binrted Flinn as he tried to resist, bnt the inspector grabbed him and began the search. Letters were taken from three pockets of the gray.uniform. Several of them had been opened and some had not. Among them were the decoys When they bad been laid on the postmaster's table Filnn Itroke Down* He confessed his perfidy without re serve. He said he had been taking money from letters for about two mouths having obtained as mochas $5 from some letters Drink he assigned as the cause for his acts. Inspector Maxwell left Flinn in tbe postmaiter's office in charge of bis asso ciate, and went up to United States Commissioner Smith's office and swore ont a warrant for bis arrest. In com pany with Marshal Lannan, who served the warrant, Inspector Maxwell went down stair* again and Flinn was taken to the lock up on the third floor. Flinn has a wife and several small children. He was appointed on the letter carrier's force on December 1, 1890, by Postmaster Stewart. It is said that in order to get a position in the government service, he changed his polities, from Democrat to Republican, and did considerable work in tbs Tenth ward In tbe 1890 campaign for the Re publicans. He declared he would carry the ward, bat bis assertions did not materialize. He is also bondsman for the alleged participants In a prize fight, Charles Stretch and James J. Rodgers, who will have a hearing to-morrow morning. Bis appearance is that of 'a dissipated mau and bis confession to committing tbe deed on that account Is evidently correct.

Tbs rail DEPARTMENTS AT ODDS Street and Sewer Directors Censure Other Officers. tion not the the is from 0ITY ENGINEERS AVOID WORK Pr«*ld(int isAwtlirop «ml Colon«! Enoch Moore Have A«ketl for a Conference With the City Council Committee on ICnglneem to Talk Over the Matter. year. tor The Directors of the Street and Sewer Department and the City Engineering and Surveying Department have not been working In harmony for some time. The former department directors think that work la not expedited with tbe rapidity it should be and, as a result, have aeked for a conference with the special committee of City Council engineers in regard to the matter. J. Newlln Gawthrop and Colonel Enoch Moore, of the Street and Sewer Department, were seen this morning. Their conversation was to the effect that engineers are not doing their work In a propel' manner, or rather that they are not doing as much work as they ahonld which Work on the Price In the Ninth ward, which was to be done by tbe Street and i I OD ance tant slow lion, nil# ble Join Men was Is use like to a he the said do, for the they are receiving property directed Sewer Department In order that portions of the city there could be improved, bss not been done, although the additional help which the Department of Engineer ing and Surveying had askedj.for 'was continued for a period of six months. Borne time ago the owners of tbe Price property laid it ont in building lots and offered to deed tbe streets to the city. The Street and Sewer De partment would not accept tbe streets as laid out, and decided to change the beds. Tbe Engineering and Surveying De partment was requested to give the necessary directions and other data necessary to lay ont the streets properly. The; claimed that the de partment was busy making out the annual report of the department, and that they could not do the great amount of work put upon them by the Btreet and Sewer Department unless tbe ad dltional engineer and rodman, hired by tbe city some time before to aid in the work of the department, was continued. These additional men were continued, and the work should have been done, it Is claimed, some time ago. Mr Gawthrop inquired on Wednesday If the work bad been completed. He was told that nothing had been done in that line, but that the work would be completed within two weeks. The members then thought that It was time for the special committee of City Connell to take the matter In hand and asked for a conference at a time to suit City Connell's committee. The Engineering Department of the city at tbo present time consists of a chief engineer at an annual salary of $2.000, an assistant engineer at a salary of $1,000 a year, a second assistant en gineer at a salary of $900 a year, an extra engineer at a salary of $75 a month and two rod men at a salary of $45 a month each. This force, tbe members of tbe Street and Sewer Department claim, is ample to do all the city work. When the mem hers of tbe Engineering Department were asked by tbe members of tbe Street and Sewer Department not been completed they weather had not been fi of work. The engineers of tbe Street and Sewer Department, tbe members say, go out in ell kinds of weather and do much work; they are never Idle. The three engineers of the later department do more work, they further say. than all the men in the City Engineering Depart metit. The work on the plot was ordered December 38. Tbe city engineers since that time, it is claimed, have bad nothing to do but mark curb lines, give building lines and set curbs. In the same time tbe Street and Sewer Department engineers have made ail the plans for tbe work on which the men sent them by the Associated Charities and the City Connell have been pnt, and have also prepared ail tbe plans for tb* sewer work now going on In tbe city. The directors claim that the city en gineers came to work in the mornings at 8 o'clock, read papers, smoked pipes end received visitors until 10 o'clock, when they went to work. Colonel! Moore also added that be bad no fault to find 'with Registry I Clerk Bette or Second Assistant Price. When seen this morning, Acting Chief Engineer Samnel Keemie said that "jealousy had existed between tbe Street and Sewer directors and tbe Engineer ing and Surveying Department since the letter department has been out of tbe control of tbe former department. Some time ago six months' 'work wss handed into tbe Snrveying 'Department. Ail the men have been at work on the job for two months, and because It was not ready on Tuesday when Mr. Gawthrop came down this matter has been pub lisbed. As far as the small talk about reading newspapers and smoking is con cerned you can judge from the visits you make to this office about that." salaries The ; ; at all A. ltd by be Tha on #lty as by He bis why tbe work had said that tbe t for that kind W H MONEY IN FLOUR AND BUTTER.
