blackmail as a hkritage.
T l„ Comfr-Stoif of Police lllnrk niuil in Sew York l.aiii in l*rter iuyv'*an'n Day. From the Century Magazine In Stuyvesant’* time many abuses of power and assessment were grafted upon tt* eternal customs of the town. Shortly after his arrival he observed that "one full forth part of the city of New Amster dam have become bawdy houses for the sale of ardent spirits, of tobacco and fceer;" on some of the business streets this proportion still holds good. He inau gurated Sunday closing with the result, perpetuated to our time, of side-door opening. Fines were established for this, that, and the other infraction of regula tions which afforded the constables a legal basis for making reprisals. In 1658 eight men were constituted the rattle-watch, and we re authorized to take "lock-up money" and fees, which sums were to be brought into the house of the captain of the watch, and held for the benefit of the members, a "divy,” as it is now called, oc curring four times a year. Thus extortion was put, as it were, upon a basis of police discretion and right; but there was a rule against setting up a so cial club on the proceeds. So the habit of police collections, contracted as a pleasure able duty, has been handed down as a vast end secret "perquisite'’ of the guardians of the public peace; and R must not be overlooked that from those days to these the police of the city have been in the personnel a continuing body. It was as necessary then as now to admonish the police not to use violence upon peaceful burghers. "Burgher right,” after the Dutch cus tom, was granted by Stuyvesant to. please the citizens, and prevailed as a trading and electoral qualification of "freemen" into our own century. Stuyvesant fixed tho fee of "great burghers,’.’ from whom municipal officers -were chosen, at fifty tiorins; and of “small burghers,” quali fied to pursue a trade or to keep shop, at twenty-five florins. Partly from this acorn has grown the Tammany oak of assess ments and reprisals on merchants. Followers of shady callings In the early days were the spoil of the autocratic au thorities, Just as they have been to-day of equally Irresponsible blackmailers. Some of the earliest settlers were free booters from the Spanish main. Smug gling was as common as Indian cheating, and Stuyvesant and other governors, Eng lish as well as Dutch, were openly charged with sharing In the profits of Illicit trade. Subsequent to the Dutch governors piracy found in Manhattan Its chief emporium. Even reputable merchants devised moral and legal quibbles for engaging In sea poaching, usually under the cover of so called privateering. The great William Kidd was peculiarly a Manhattan product. Gov. Fletcher in 1093 admitted that he had exchanged ’’presents” with the notorious pirate Thomas Tew, but explained that his chief desire In seeking his “amusing conversation" was "to reclaim him from a vile habit of swearing”—which parallels the Tammany theory that a proper way to reclaim malefactors is to appoint them to public office. In 1698 the Enrl of Bellomont, who had succeeded Fletchor as governor, complained to the English lords of trade that he had endeavored to place four mer chantmen, about to clear for Madagascar, under bonds not to supply pirates at that notorious trysting-place with supplies, and bring their booty to Manhattan; "but the council, some of them being ooncerned in these ships,” ho writes, "unanimously op posed this method, as not prescribed by law, and because it was never practiced here before, so I was forced to discharge the said ships.” THE SEARCH FOR CHARLIE ROSS. ltnscully New York Police Officers prevented Success Being Attuincd. From the Philadelphia Enquirer. So many years have parsed since the child Charles RoSs was stolen from his home in Germantown that the crime is lost to the memory of many, but that has not deterred some people from still making the attempt to palm off a bogus youth upon the afflicted family as the lost son. The latest effort of this kind was made by a woman who represented her self as the widow of one of the two burg lars who were killed at Bay Ridge, L. 1., while trying to rob the house of a Judge of the courts. The woman brought with her a young man, who, a relative of the boy says, was flat headed and beetle browed and could In no way have borne resem blance to what little Charlie would have been at manhood. She had the story of ,j 0 1 sappeara nc.e pat enough-how the two children, Charlie and Walter, were \v* °ir from tho lawn of th o house, at , llshlp gton lane and Chew street, by the TWO men in a wagon, Mosher and Doug ta-s, how they were driven into the eoun ■ I u ere Wa lter, the elder, was dropped, * 20,000 ransom had been offered u ecovery of the younger son. Other acts She seemed familiar with, but her Echeme had nothing else in it. .Many believed the boy to be dead. There ve been a hundred or more alleged Char lies, but in no instance has the father, who nas traveled al-1 over the country, had any v”f:r. after ° nce seeing the alleged child or i.rns v produced. The secret of his fate 1 robably died with the Bay Ridge bueg .on,e of whom expired immediately utter being shot, while the other only lived , and enough to say that his companion "ad known where the child was, that the and Was still alive, but that he himself anew nothing of his location, in.!! na '"rating some of the facts the reia lio-hf ° f tf>o Ross famll Y alsp shed more *ht upon the efforts to find the boy, and made the important statement that once nen success seemed assured they were ‘‘rated hy one of the police captains of th x ' ork ' a man w ho was charged before me Lex-orw committee with having acquir ne alth by the most corrupt means. It as ‘here, he says, the kidnappers had ar anged deliver their prisoner upon the Payment of the 120,000. They had exacted me condition that Mr. Ross and those he! P J him Khoulcl leave New York upon of a special train, a locomotive and ont “ car, bound for Albany. At one point along the road a colored an tern light was to be waved, and the *** this signal, was to he dropped . the Side of the track. Further up the Jn, ‘here was to be another light shown, and there the boy was to be delivered to aem. According to the relative’s story, 7,„ rescuing party took along an expert , ‘bman, with the object of maiming the a) mapper, whoever be might be, and then meeting his capture. They made the trip !',; u no ‘hing came of it. No lights were Th >Wn an< * no ot^er clew was obtained. ne police captain in question, the rela ,.ve says, gave the tip to the thieves that 0 sl *arpshooter would be on board the ar ' Walter Ross, the son who was -rapped by the country side, was married about two months ago. ! birdup (scribbles)—My dear fellow, K. ildn’t x; lend me a V'? —, .‘KSins (scribbles below)—My boy, you zar St lk nk that lam a Jl—Harper's Ba "Yee,” remarked Mrs. Malaprop.
