ECATJSE of the unusual series of murders that have followed in its wake since the assassina tion of Herman Rosenthal last summer the New York vice and crime Investigation has taken on a sinister fatality. Also the sweeping disclosures of systematic extortion and life taking In New York have made the affair one of national interest. The murderous side of New York's oddly developed criminal classes Is thrown forth in strong relief. As to the phase of graft operations, the in vestigators recently seemed to have en meshed the heads of the conspiracy. Inspector Dennis Sweeney of the Sixth Inspection district, which comprises the great section called Harlem, suffer ed indictment as the man higher up. It was asserted by several informers that he shared in a monthly collection of graft totaling from $500 to $1,000. Policeman Eugene Fox, when accus ed by a hotel keeper of being a collector of extortion, became himself an in former recently. He Implicated his im mediate superior, Captain Thomas Two American girls stopping in Munich one morning asked their land lady what there was in the way Of Bights in the country round about They had "done" the city, and it only remained for them to take in anything remarkable in the environs. "The Wohlfarth schloss is a very odd building," the woman replied. "It is not far from here. You will find it very interesting." "Is it a ruin?" "Oh, no! It is occupied by the Wohl-farths." "Good!" said one of , the girls. "We'll go. I'm tired of ruins and pic tures of saints and martyrs being roasted on gridirons. Let's go. Belle." "I'm with you, Uosie. I would like to see a real old castle that's kept up In modern style." Alighting at a ra.il way station, they asked the way to the castle of an offi cial who showed them the towers ris ing above the trees within walking distance. He informed them that Count Wolfgang Wohlfarth occupied the castle and sometimes tourists were Walsh. The latter, sick in bed. then in j admitted to inspect It. On reaching turn "made a complete confession. This was the final fastening of charges on alleged culprits. Originally it was Herman Rosenthal, who had promised disclosures, that it they crossed a drawbridge, passed under a portcullis and told the gate man in German, which they spoke tolerably well, that they were Ameri can tourists and would like to see the started the big series of graft sensa-1 castle. tions.

The tableaux on steps with the many changes of names that j of the treasury building formed a striking have been required by the consolida- 1 feature of the program. tion of the interests of The Reformer and The I'hoenix. Some of these ! changes were not the easiest to man age, in one instance the order being received, to "transfer my superstition from The Reformer to The l'hoenix." Most of us have these things in some guise or other but it is not always easy to leave it to others to transfer them. However, the business depart ment is doing its best to obey orders. And that, tilings us to the troubles incident to starting a complete new system of delivery of papers, especial ly on a day when all of Brattlcboro and residents of other towns had been anticipating the advent of the new paper and were waiting with malice aforethought to secure a copy and an early one. Jf you did not get one until 9 or 3 0 o'clock last night don't blame the boy on your route but some of the highwaymen who waylaid him aud of fered him the choice of selling one or having it taken from him.

The first copy that reached the office from the press room was purloined by Charles R. Crosby, who wedged his wav through the mass of boys and walked upstairs and out doors reading VERNON.

Representative Wil- i liam B. Wilson of Pennsylvania. Many of these names have la-en known for several days and chief interest center- : ed-in the revelation of those who would j receive the portfolios of war,' agriculture ; and interior. The selection of Vice Chancellor Carri- ! son of New Jersey to he secretary of war ' is in line with the idea the president-elect ' has always had that the head of the war ; department should be a man of unusual : administrative ability. Supervision of the ; island possessions of the United States, in- ' eluding the Philippines and the Panama : Canal zone, will be important factors tin- der the new administration and this bur- i den will fall on the head of the war tie- partment. Vice Chancellor Garrison is a close friend of Mr. Wilson and is regarded : as one of the best men New Jersey has i ever elevated to the bench. The choosing of David Franklin Houston, chancellor of Washington University, St. 1 Louis. Mo., for the portfolio of agriculture, also occasions little surprise as Mr. Wil son's intimate knowledge of auricuM ural questions has led him to seek a man famil , iar with the processes of advancing scien tific fanning and allied tpiestions in this country. Mr. Houston was president of i the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical : college for a number of years. For the portfolio of secretary of the in terior, it is said Mr. Wilson lias been in fluenced to select a westerner of legal train ; ins. Franklin K. Lane's experience as interstate commerce commissioner, it is assumed, has fitted him for executive and ; judicial tasks involved in administering the public land policy of the country. David 1".

They Lave known ev- , erything of importance before the pa pers have had a chance to print it. It's different now. Everywhere were heard favorable comments upon the typographical np- ' pearanco of the paper. One person ap parently expected to receive a paper of the dimensions of the New York Sunday Journal and was very evident ly disappointed. But in the main ex pressions of satisfaction, all of them very gratifying to the management, were heard. Some reached the office by telephone, some were personally ex pressed and still Mnore reached the office today by mail. For which much thanks and our promise that every effort will be made to make the paper still more worthy of them. The rough edges have not been worn off yet and will not be in the natural course ot events for some little time. The Reformer's new press has not arrived, being somewhere in the wilds between here and West Virginia. In consequence the printing of the daily is a much slower process than it will be after the new press is installed and in working order. One of the troubles with the present work will then have been eliminated, for papers will be is sued much more rapidly to the route ' boys and those who purchase them for street sales. Late yesterday afternoon and last evening the Reformer telephone was constantly in use. and scores of calls we-e received asking whether or not the paper was to be delivered. Patient ly it was explained that there ' were so many highwaymen in Brattleboro who were robbing the route boys that the little fellows were returning con stantly for more papers and picking on their routes where they had left off Sine of them were at work as late as 9 o'clock last evening. It is not expected that this form of trouble will be so prevalent this after non and in the future. If it continues the Reformer will consider it equiva ent to a challenge and will engage of ficial guardians for each boy. The routes must be covered and within a reasonable time.
