IN THE HANDS OF SHARK?
Commissioners Take Steps
to Save Policemen From
Money Lenders.
MANY DELINQUENTS ON TRIAI
Is “the Gang’’ Trying to Gel
Square With Patrolman
Frank Kelly.
Eight policemen were on trial before
the Board of Police Commissioners yes
terday afternoon. Patrolman Eleazer
Losey of the Gregory station was charged
with striking Patrolman Coughlin on the
head with his club during an altercation
in the squad room in the police station
on the morning of June 22. Coughlin
was charged with conduct unbecoming
an officer Patrolman William Luyster of
the same station and Sergeant Batters
by of the Communipaw avenue station
were charged with transferring their pay
warrants. Chanceman George Conklin of
the same station was charged with fail
ing to report from signal box for two
hours.
Patrolman Frank Kelly of the same
station was up on two charges, one not
reporting for duty and the other having
left his post, entering the pool room of
Charles Farmer, on Grand street, on the
night of June 29, and taking off his coat
and hat and playing pool.
Patrolman Louis Bettiger of the Com
munipaw avenue station was charged
with not reporting from signal box at
proper time, and Patrolman John Downs,
also of the same station, was charged
with being off his post.
In the case of Losey it was alleged
that he twitted Coughlin in the station
house about being in the company of a
young woman. Coughlin did not take his
remarks kindly and they got into a quar
rel. which resulted in Coughlin receiv
ing a blow on the head with a club, cut
ting a gash. Coughlin charged Losey
with inflicting the blow, but the latter
insisted tnat uougnun was struc* uy
own club, he having raised liis club
threateningly towards Losey when the
latter, thinking he intended to strike
him, raised his own club to ward off the
blow, the two clubs coming in contact.
The preponderance of evidence given by
witnesses of the occurrence supported
this plea and the charge against Losey
was dismissed, with a warning from
Commissioner West that boisterous con
duct among policemen in the squad
rooms must cease.
About the only thing brought out in the
cases of Patrolman Luyster and Sergeant
Battersby were that they had for some
time been victims of money lenders, who
had been fleecing them to the tune of five
per cent, a month or sixty per cent, a
year, and although they had not paid the
Jf those holding power of attorneys to col
J lect them, and themselves signing the
stubs. City Clerk O’Donnell, who was
called as a witness in the case of Luyster,
gave notice to the Commissioners that
hereafter the warrant books will not be
eefot to Police Headquarters but will be
kept in the office of the City Clerk, and
that officer will disburse the warrants to
the Captains of each precinct, and then
he could keep track of the power of at
torney.
President Abemethy said he did not
know about that. Mr. O’Donnell said that
he did, and as he was the custodian of
the city warrants he should; adopt that
rule. Both of these cases were discussed
with a warning that hereafter the selling
of pay warrants would not be tolerated.
Chanceman Conklin pleaded guilty to
the charge against him. claiming that he
arrived at his box two minutes before
the time for sending in his report, and
while waiting he was called to stop a dis
tnr nance on a trolley car i or getting arier
that he had not pulled his box, but he
could not seem to remember why he did
not report the ensuing hour. He was
fined five days’ pay. President Abernethy
telling him thait if he could afford to give
five days for two hours’ time the Board
could easily stand it.
The case of Patrolman Frank Kelly
was the most important, and Counselor
Alexander Simpson was oru hand to defend
him. To the first charge of not reporting
at roll call, he pleaded guilty. The ex
cuse he gave was that he was awakened
late and did not arrive at the station un
til his post had been filled. To the
second charge of being in a poolroom and
playing pool, ho pleaded not guilty. This
charge was based upon an affidavit of
Michael Fitzpatrick, who says that Kelly
was in the poolroom, had his hat and
coat off and was playing pool. Michael
Fitzpatrick did not appear, but his son
Edward did, and testified that he saw
Kelly in the saloon with two women, that
he had his coat and hat off, but he did not
see him playing pool. He also saw him
when he came out and heard him say he
would arrest anyone who hung around
that corner. On cross-examination Fitz
patrick admitted that Kelly had arrested
his brother that same night.
Peter Flannelly was called as a witness
“He joined the Fourth Regiment and
went away with it.”
1 Detective Holtic said the gang about
that earner was a general annoyance and
that some of them had been arrested for
breaking into stores.
Patrolman Kelly admitted being in the
saloon and having off his coat and hat,
but explained that while at his signal box
he was accosted by Mrs. McDermott, of
No. S3 Woodward street, who told him
that she had been insulted by '.he gang
that was standing In front of Farmer’s
saloon. Having been instructed by ihe
captain to break up the gang lie said he
thought that that would be a good lime
to do it. He borrowed a hat and Coat
from some one in the saloon, he said,
leaving his on the pool table while he
chased the gang. 'He succeeded in arrest
ing a brother of the witness Fitzpatrick.
He brought his prisoner back to the
saloon, he said, while Mr. Farmer handed
him his coat and hat.
The proprietor of the saloon cor
roborated Kelly's story. Kelly admitted
to President Abernethy that lie was aware
that he had violated the rules in entering
the saloon.
In the absence of Captain McKaig,
wanted as a witness, the case was laid
over to the next meeting. Kelly, who
has been suspended since the occurrence,
being ordered on duty.
Patrolmen Bettiger and Downes were
both found guilty, the former for not re
porting on time and the latter for being
off post, each being fined one day’s pay.
The Policeman Asks Pay for
the ,Time He Was Sus
pended-Chief Mur
phy’s Report.

day afternoon received a petition signed
by Charles Taylor and' seventy seven
others asking for the appointment of

Larkins be forced to pay a judgment
awarded them by the District Court.
Chietf of Police Murphy staled that Lar
kins either had paid the judgment or
would pay it. Commissioner West moved

The following communication from Pa
trolman Henry M. Abemethy was ordered

On Hie 28th day of June, 1S97, I was
suspended from duty as a patrolman
of the Jersey City Police Department,
upon charges made against me. These
charges have been proven utterly false,
and baseless. My suspension, continued
until May 1«, 1898. when by resolution
of the Board 1 was reinstated. Dur
pciiuu, cu.m uuiu u luiv
lsST, t< l.Iay 16, 1898. I repeatedly re
quested to be returned to duty, but no
heed was paid to my requests, and I
received no salary fur and during that
entire i erlod.
I now would respectfully request that
I be paid my salary from June 28, 1898,
. to May 16, 1898, at the same late as 1
would, have received had 1 not been
suspended.
Your obedient servant,
IIE.YRY M. ABBRNETHY,

ball Games--Odds and
Ends of Sports.
The Flemings defeated the Atlantics
yesterday after a hard fought battle.
Both teams were in fine condition and
each played a careful, fast game from
the start. Up to the fifth inning neither
had scored and it looked as if the game
would be a long winded one, but in the
fifth Gardner weakened and he was hit
unmercifully. In the sixth the Flemings
scored three and scored two in the sev
enth, so that it looked like a whitewash
for the Atlantics, as they had failed to
score up to this point. In the seventh
McCormack gave the Atlantics an open
ing and they hit him hard. This in ad
dition to two bad errors at a critical mo
ment gave the Atlantics six runs and
things began to take on a somewhat dif
ferent appearance. If there had been a
couple more innings to play there is no
tening wnat tne result wouiu nave ueen.
