jjow a Detective Saved a Man from
Arizona— Sketch of the “Green
Goods" Game from Act 1.4 Observa
tion of a, Particular < ise in New
York City. ;
\ K w York, Dec. SI. —“lf 1 last my pres
ent position,” said a New York police de
tective to me a few days ago “1 would go
into the sawdust business. I'here s more
money in it and less risk than ;>t any similar
The first part was spoken in jest,but there
was a deal of truth in the rust of it. The
four best known “green goods’ men in this
, ity have made a barrel of titpney in the
past two years. They are Barney McGuire,
jo. Little, Charley Johnson and Charles
Parmerly. Each is a leader of a “gang,”
for the business requires a large forrai of
employes. The minor vogues make only
their wages With pickings and stealings,
just as in politics and elsewhere, but the
leader grow rich on large and frequent prof
its, 1 have the best authority for saying
that McGuire’s gains during the last two
'years have Hot been less tlran ?!30,000. The
ethers have not earned so mu li; say $35,-
Oho. for Parmerly, $40,000, for.lohnson, and
f50,000, for Little. Altogether it is a profit
able business and bids fair to be both per
manent and safe. The laws do not cover
the offense, so that a sawdust man wh o
tights hard can almost, always secure an ac
quittal. Many of those coavicted have
foolishly pleaded guilty when there was not
the least need of it. The methods of these
men have been exposed times without nuni
ier. but the victims continue to pour in.
Newspaper articles on the subject, though
they state the fact in the clearest terms, are
orfly advertisements for the bu iness and are
so regarded by sawdust men. When an ex
pose comas to the hands of a man who is
thinking of purchasing “green goods” lje
simply sneers at the idea that he Car be
caught in such a net, and at once matures a
plan to get the best of the swindlers. It
costs hint from $250 to $1,300 to find out
that his plan is not reliable, i had an op
portunity, within a few days, to see a part
of the operation performed ujon a coun
tryman, and was much edified by the spec
I was standing in the Pennsylvania ferry
house, foot of CourElahd street, early in the
afternoon, just as the p&ssmgers of a
through ti ain landed in this city. Among
them was a man whose appearauce was so
peculiar that my attention was attracted to
him at once. Pie was over 0 feet in height,
sienderiy built, and clothed in rather un
couth garments, the most conspicuous of
which was a very long frock coat of a mili
tary pattern and of the color known in ihe
Bouth as “butternut.” He wore a round
topped hat with a very broad brim. His
hair was long and hung down upon his
shoulders. He had a sandy moustache, and
lie carried a valise. I observed him closely
for he was a dolightfully “fresh” sub

• Suddenly I became aware that I was not
the only person who was taking an unusual
interest in the stranger’s affairs. Two men,
standing together in such a position as to be
somewhat withdrawn from general obser
vation, were watching the new arrival
sharply though warily. I hail an indistinct
impression that One of them had once been
pointed out to me as a man who would steal
if circumstances permitted. As I after
ward learned they w ere Jim Johnson and
“Bat” Sweeney, who are known to the pro
fession as “steerers.” The intelligent
leader may be coming to New York any
day to buy greeu goods, and very likely will
meet one of these men, so it will do no harm
to tell how they look. Johnson is n dark man,
3 feet sinches in height, of medium build,
nnd is 45 years old. He has curly hair and
a dark moustache. He will be found wear
ing a dark suit and a black derby hat. His
countenance is not an evil one though liis
eye is somewhat furtive. Mr. Sweeney will
greet the visitor clothed in a suit v ery simi
lar to that of Mr. Johnson, for such gar
ments are not likely to attract attention.
He is 28 years old, 3 feet 0 inche- tall, of
slender build and light complexion. He
is at present wearing a sandy mou.-tuche.
These two men watched the stranger
from the country, and I watched them, re
membering the text about the man Who
Jvamedown from Jerusalem to Jericho ami
tell among thieves.” When the visitor left
Ihe ferry-house he was followed at a re
spectful distance by Messrs. Johnson and
Sweeney. This settled the question in my
mind, and I joined the procession. After
some delay we reached a hotel on Broadway.
Sweeney and Johnson then withdrew and 1
remained to await developments. The
stranger registered at once and went to his
room. Shortly thereafter he received a
call from a gentleman named Brady. Mr.
Brady is 5 feet tl inches tall, with light com
plexion and sandy moustache. Be has a
tine physique, and weighsabout 180 pounds.
Green goods buyers will take care not to af
front Mr. Brady, for lie is a slugger. Alter
h brief interview, the unfortunate and
Brady came down stairs and passed out

in time to see Brady and the innocent go by,

with an amused smile.

“Nobody don’t pull any wool over my
eyes,” said the countryman, and be was pro
ceeding to give Newcombe a history of his
many marvelous exploits, when Brady and
another man hove in sight coming up the
street. When they saw Newcombe they
turned about, walked rapidly to the Bowery
and finally broke into a run. . The man
from beyond civilization was surprised.
“Bay, stranger, what does yer mean,”
said he. “Those fellers lit out like mad the
instant they laid eyes on yer. I don’t like
it and if I thought you’d prevented my
dealing with them I’d drop you in yer
tracks.' 1 At the same time he reached for
his pistol.
“Don’t take that gun out here or you will
get into trouble,’’said Newcombe. “You’re
liable to arrest for having it with you. I’m
a detective and have done what I could to
keep you out of bad company. Take my
advice and get out of to wn.”
To my great surprise the countryman de
cided upon reflection that this advice was
“This yer New York ain’t Arizona,” said
he, “and as long as you’re what you say
you arel guess I’d better tie to you.”
He seemed to be a decent sort of fellow,
and Newcombe invited him down to his
office in the Benedict building. There the
man from Arizona told hisstory. His name
was J. L. Mormardy. He had been lured
to New York in the usual way.
“There’s lots of boys out my way who
I have been roped in by these fellows,” said
• he. “You see out there we don’t make much
•money, and when we do make any it conies
in a heap. Just about the time a man
rakes in a little pile he hears from New
York. Somebody wants to sell him a lot of
gram goods, and though he can point to
half a dozen men who have got left on that
racket lie is just fool enough to think he
can get the best of it. That was the way
with me. I’ve got 41,000 in my pocket, and
I expert 1 came pretty near losing it. At
the same time I vvaiited to make a winning
pretty bad. They Sent a sample of their
money out to me. That’s what catches the
boys. You can’t tell it from the genuine
“Likely enough,” said Newcombe, “for
it’s as good a bill as ever was made.”
t V ; ■
He then proceeded to give Mr. Mormardy
a few points on the workings of the saw
dust game. Everybody knows how the first
part of the game is played. The “writer,”
as he is called, sondj out his letters to ad
dresses in commercial directories or to men
lie hears of from local crooks. The country
man comes to tlie city with all he can raise,
goes to a hotel, and is met by some such
man as Brady to whom he is induced to sur
render the correspondence. The affair is
then in charge of the "boodler,” a man who
holds the money. When the deal is com
plete the writer usually gets -0 per cent. In
this case Brady was the “steerer.” He takes
his man as far as the "turning point,” so
cuiled, where he is left till he is sufficiently
nervous to be run into the joint and fleeced.
Once inside, he is shown the money (note
fresh from the Treasury Department) and by
this time he is so excited that bis only
thought is to get hold of them and get out of
town. He is invariably induced to express
the valise to his home for fear the detectives
will arrest- him for having counterfeit
money. It is needless to say that the valise
which goes by express is not the one that
contains the money. There are various
ways of turning tho trick. Sometimes tho
change is made in the dive where the money
is shown. A sliding panel is arranged in
the wall, and while the countrymen’s atten
tion is attracted another way the substitu
tion is made. The latest thing is the res
tauraut trick. The victim gets his money
m a bundle which he carries in hiss hand.
Then accompanied by two or three of the
thieves ho good into a restaurant amt sits
down at a table. Suddenly one of the
crooks whispers: "Ibook out for the fly
cop!” at the same time pointing to one ol
the gang who is rigged up as a detective.
“Put that money under tho table,
out of sight!” continues the crook: and
the innocent do "* it every time. Sometimes
he keeps his hand on it. ' Then he is asked to
take a drink, and while ho lifts t.io gloss to
his lips t lie t, milder is made. His hand goes
under tho table again, but the bundle it
grasps is not the same one that it held a mo
ment. before. ~ , ,
Newconibe explained a half do*en such
tricks to the man from Arizona, and then
showed him Bim4>’’* picture, and various
clippings in scrap books which told or suc

A Check Which Judge Maurice J.
Tower Carried in His Pocket -Dan
iel Manning’s Power in Politics—A
Judge of Human Nature.
New York, Dec. 31.--The event of the
week has been the death of Daniel Man
ning. In no place in the United States has
his power as a politician been felt more
than in this city. For years Manning was
the head and front of the opposition to John
Kelly. It. was his firm and unyielding dis
position that drove Kelly out of the Dem
ocratic State Convention in Syracuse eight
years ago, and gave the County Democracy
recognition as the sole Democratic organiza
tion in this city. It was Manning’s tact
that brought Tammany back within the
fold as a tender to the County Democracy
locomotive. It was Manning who held
Tammany true to Cleveland in the election
of 18S4, when the slightest defection would
have defeated the Democratic candidate for
A tjer Mr. Manning was made Secretary
of the Treasury he appeared to be the only
man in the Cabinet who was willing to give
Tammany a fair share of the patronage.
His course cemented the good feeling be
tween the factions and made it possible for
the Democracy to win its great victories in
the State and in the city. When stieken
by paralysis, Mr. Manning did not lose his
interest in the consolidation of the city De
mocracy. All through his illness he closely
watched the political struggles in the State
and city. How deep this interest was has
just been accidentally shown.
Judge Maurice J. Power found in his over
coat atter Mr. Manning’s death a letter di
rected to Col. John R. Fellows. This letter
had been handed to tbo J udge during the
exciting political campaign in November
last when Col. Fellows was a candidate for
District Attorney. The Judge was request
ed to deliver the letter to Col. Fellows per
sonally. He placed it in his overcoat
pocket and forgot all about it. Upon dis
covering the letter he gave it to the Col
onel, who promptly opened it. It was from
Daniel Manning, and it was filled with
cheering words and a check for S3O, which
he begged the Colonel to accept and use in
paving his election expenses.
The Colonel’s eyes filled with tears as be
read the letter from his old time chief.
“That money,” he said, “can never be
drawn. I shall frame the check and place
it in my room where I can see it every day
and remember the great and generous
friend whose heart went with his signa-
It is about seventeen years since Mr.
Manning was the legislative reporter of the
Albany Argus. He also did some Associated
Press reports. While he was thus employed,
the Arcade Railway bill came before the
Legislature. It was strongly pressed. A.
T. Stewart was bitterly opposed to it. and
sent a lawyer of the name of Fuller to Al
hany to defeat it. Fuller stirred up a
breeze, and did his liest to please his em
ployer. One morning he saw something in
the New York Tribune which touched him
to the quick. It bore an Albany date.
Nathan Comstock was then the Tribun* cor
respondent. Fuller met him in the lobby
of the House and threatened to whip him
for sending the dispatch. Nathan replied
that Fuller was mistaken. He hail never
sent such a dispatch, and it must have coma
from the Associated Press. “Dan Manning
is the Associated Press correspondent,
Nathan said. “Don’t you know him, Mr.
Fuller P
“No, 1 don’t,” answered the irate lawyer;
“but I’d like to know him, and give him a
piece of my mind.”
“Oh, he’s a good fellow,” Comstock re
sponded. “I’ll take you down to the Argus
office and introduce you.”
They went down to the Argus office.
They found Dan at work with scissors in a
room with William Cassidy. Nathan in
troduced Fuller.
“Did you send thnt dispatch to the Tri
bune yesterday'” asked the lawyer, pointing
Jto a copy of the Tribune.
“Yes, replied Dan, whose sluggish tem
perament was at that time a matter of re
mark among all who knew him.
“Then,” exclaimed Fuller, his eyes blaz
ing with anger, “you’re an infernal liar
and an ill-begotten scoundrel! Good day,
sir. ”
The lawyer took off his hat with mock po
liteness and left the office. Dan remained
in his seat, scissors in hand, as though lie
had been struck in the back of the neck
with a sand-club. A moment afterward
Mr. Cassidy, who hid overheard the con
versation, turned to Manning and said:
“Dan, are you going to stand that !”
Dan gazed at Cassidy for full a minute
anil then replied.
“I don’t think it my duty to stand it.
Mr. Cassidy, and I believe I won’t stand
Mr. Manning then asked Comstock where
he could find Fuller.
"You can find him at the capital if you
want to see him, Dan,” Comstock replied.
"He asked lue to bring him down here for
an introduction. 1 supposed him to boa
gentleman, and thought that he would talk
am cably with you over the matter.”
Mr. Manning slapped on his hat aud they
started tor the capitol. Fuller was not
there, but they afterward found him in the
rotunda of the court Louse. Manning went
for him as Kufiivan goes lor his opponents.
In a flash Fuller drew a revolver from his
hip pocket aud presented it at Dan’s breast.
Comstock withdrew in a hurry. He said
that he had no faith in Fuller’s skill as a
marksman, and that he didn’t want to take
any chances. What followed was never
known. Manning made no reply when
questioned concerning it, and Fuller has al
ways kept his mouth closed. Certain it is
that something did happen, for both men
left tho building arm in arm, and from that
day to the day of his death Manning pro
fessed the warmest friendship lor Fuller,
and Fuller professed the warmest friend
ship for Manning.
Manning was ilia life and the soul of the
County Democracy. He hound up its
wounds and applied arnica to its braises.
Hubert O. Thompson was only his lieuten
ant, and no man was more grieved than
Manning himself because Huuert failed to
reap the reward to which the County De
mocracy thought him entitled.
Daniel Manning was a true friend. He
made few promises and never broke one.
Ho was a silent man. Rarely did he make
a speech, and lie never probably spoke for
more than five minutes. What he said was
the essence of condensation. Asa reporter
he was plain and practical, and never bril
liant. Housed few adjectives, and pruned
Ins sentences intuitively. While editor of
t o Ai'yu.i he penned few editorial articles.
The work was done by men whom ho knew
and trusted. He was it rare judge of hu
man nature, and in all his (Kilitical life it is
safe to say that he never made a mistake in
choosing his men. Nearly every politician
of repute in the city at tended his tin.oral,
and all wore sincere mourners. He lias dis
appeared from lho stage of Ufe, and it will
be long before the Democracy of New York
finds a leader of equal power and judgment.
Manning ranks as a political leader with
Xa-ter Cagger, Dean Richmond, aud his
old friend Cassidy, but lie attached the
hearts of men to him by his sincerity aud
not bv appealing to their selfishness.
