Ft 1 LONDON, June 25.-With dramatic suddenness the king lias been stricken down upon the event of his coronation. He lies in a critical state at Bucking ham palace. In spite of the intensity of this tragic interruption the lower elements of London last night went "innlicking" through the flag decked streets, and a portion of society, in coronation gowns and Jewels, gathered at what was called a galu coronation dinner at one of the fashionable hotels. Even at the gates of Buckingham palace, with in which the ablest surgeons and phy sicians constantly remained in tho hope of saving the sovereign's life, the tooting of horns and the sound of other revelries could be plainly heard. Wagon loads of boisterous rowdies were on the streets driving in all sorts of vehicles and waving flags and hug ging demijohns of liquor, making their noisj' way from the east end to Whitechapel. They represented that section of the British public which tragedy can sober into decency. They have tasted license unrestrained by law in the celebrations in connection with the war, and. king or no king, they will celebrate the coronation. Indescribable consternation prevails throughout the country, and this cou n i&.j] ■jgr; * L (O (3) KING EDWARD. sternation is reflected iu the cable grams received from all the centers of the uni facing the i beautiful gardens of Buckingham pal ace and far from tlie street and the crowd.

The men were arraigoed oca charge of bribing the City Solicitor to obtain informatio# to assiat them in running lottery policy in Wiiminglo'n. Martin was accuaed specifically of paying #100 to the city aolicitor, and Chadwick was allege I to have offered #500 to that official for proieclion. la addition there was another warraot charg ing Chadwick with conspiring to eogage in lottery writing in this city. Magistrate Hollia, before whom Chadwick and Martin were ar raigned, deemed the evidence sufficient to hold them and Chad wick* bail wa* fixed at $8,000 and Martin's at (7.000, which neither was able to furnish. The $1,000 additional demanded of Chadwick ia because of the conspiracy charge agaioet him. Attorney-General Ward and Dep uty Attorney-General Richards represented the state, and former Judge Bali and Harry Joslyn ap peared for the defendants, Mr, Ball conducting the defeuse. Charles Guyer took the testimony [or the stats and Harvey Woods for the defendants counsel, Martin and Chadwick, manacled to each other were taken from the City Hall to the magistrates office at the open ing of the hearing by Constable Jones. Attorney-General Ward expressed a desire to bear botb bribery charges at once to wbich Judge Ball agreed. There was a legal tilt however when Mr. Bail said he han subpoenaed Mr. Reinhardt as a witness and therefore request ed that he be allowed (o look at a book containing duplicates of let ters tbe city aolicitor had been in structed to produce. Mr. Ward held that it could not be seen by Mr. Ball until after it was offered in evidence, and with this understanding tbe hearing con tinued. City Solicitor Reinhardt said he had bean acquainted with Chadwick since February and with Martin since Thursday last. The acquaint ance with Chadwick arose out of the examination conducted by the Police Commission in regard to the charges against former Chief Eu gene Massey. Chadwick was not a witnees at the investigation, but the proceed ing developed that Chad wick pos sessed important information. "There was a great deal oi opposi tion developed against Chief Mas sey," the solicitor continued, "and it was my desire to get this that led to my acquaintance with Chadwick. I met him in Broad Street Station, Philadelphia, one Sunday afternoon. I have met him three cr four days alter 1 first met him, iu my private office. "Did you ever have auy conver sation with Chadwick in regard to the payment of money to you," ask ed Mr. Ward. "Yes, on several occasions. What first led tusucli conversation I shall have to explain my object of becoming acquainted with Chad wick in order to answer. He had cer tain information in reference to tha charges and corruption in the police department. 1 desired to find out all about tlie transactions in the police department In 1900 and 1901 and also about a certain conspiracy against Captain Ulack to oust him, aad for the purpose of proving to Samuel N. Knox and others, who had befriended Massey that they were wrong. Knox and Barney Mc Vey were the main opposing forces to the Investigation, Mr. Knox hav ing approached one of the police com missioners about It, and McVey hav ing approached some of tile witnesses When 1 found this 1 realized that I had a big job on hand. As I said I first metChadwick in Broad Street Station and again In a few days later in my office. Mr. Hall and Chadwick and 1 were working together to got some money ftom Mrs. Walls tliatslie claimed Sam. Levy owed her. I wrotetoChaclwIok eventually that 1 was sick of the whole thing and told him Mrs. Walls ought to drop lior claim against Levy as is was not a legal claim. Mr. Reinhardt then offered and road the letter to which he referred and it was put in evidence. A day or two later, Mr. Reinhardt said Chadwick came to him, but Rein hardt said he told Chadwick lie was busy and lie did not care whether policy went on or not so long as it was not brought to his attention, "He said to me that Mrs. Wails could not go to work right away, that it wasn't safe to play policy in town," Mr. Reinhardt continued. "Chadwick seemed to got so confi dent that I made up my mind to lead him ou, and he spoke about the possibility of running policy in this town hut the matter of money was not mentioned. "I went to Attorney General Ward at that time that Chadwick was in my office and siuce then have consulted him very much about every visit Chadwick made. I soon found Chadwick was hacking a syn dicate to play policy hero and that he was talking to certain writers about having me 'fixed.' Later on We talked the matter over consider ably. He became a nuisance and I told him ho could not run policy un til aftor the May term, as tho law might he tested and arrests made. He kept away from me until June (i or 8, and came again on Jline 14, and began to intimate tiiat it was worth a great deal of money for my protection. I asked him how, and he said that he wanted Ups from the police de partment as to when arrests would be made. 1 told him I controlled Chief Black. Ho then said he would give $10,000 for tha privilege of r un ning ten or seventeen books for a year here. He also said Chief Massey was paid (100 a week from August 1900, to March, 1901, for protection. He then talked about thelegal course a person would take it arrested for lottery, and bespoke of bribing the Municipal Court, the grand jury' the petit Jury the judges the attorney general, and myself for protection. A'Jitlj 1 It did not Mt«r air mind until then to hats the man arrested. Ctudwtelc told ns htd paid John Lynn In tiro latter pan at February or Marob, 1901, and that Lynn- put the right names In tbs jury box, and that Lynn was to get #25 tor stall gambler ac qulted or if tbs jury disagreed. Its said Bnrney McVey was the go-be tween. For tome reason, Chadwick said, the court threw out the juries. "Nothing turned up of any conse quence until last Wednesday night when I got a letter from Chadwick that Martin would be in my office on Thursday noon. This letter was produced by Mr. Reinhardt and read. It stated that Martin would he ready to "talk business,' 1 and also expressed a desire that Chief of Police Black be invited to Ches to meet the chief of police th so the gamblers could try to "i him. The letter also contained the*'*™ information that Levy made #500 a day from the ten books he ran in Wilmington. Mr. Reinhardt ex plained that he had a previous let; ter in reference to compensation. It also was read and stated: "Oh good, fair, honest play in this city would be worth #5,000 or #10,000.'' "There is a reference in this let ter. It is understood no demand for money should he asked. What does that mean?" continued Mr. Ward. "At a meeting subsequent to this lie mentioned to me that I had said I wanted no money," said Mr. Rein hardt, "but when he talked of brib ery I changed my mind and decided to get him. He , said that Massey got #5,000 a mouth and that Levy had offered #1,000 a month to run seventeen books. The next letter lie wrote me he began to hedge on the #10,000 hut I might get #5,000, and wonld get more later on. He began to speak of 'fixing' and I a ' i I bad control of Black. He said he would give mo money when any body needed fixing. "In the letter of June 17," inter rupted Mr. Ward, "Chadwick says: 'I would lie glad to arrange an in terview with Mr. Black.' To whpm did he refer?" "To Chief Black. "Mr. Black had nothing to do witli this?" "No, sir." "He further says," added Mr. Ward: "I could get the chief at Chester to write to Black.' Did ha ever talk to you about the chief at Chester. City Solicitor Reinhardt continued to tell how he led the men on and received the #100 which he gave to Attorney-General Ward. He was cross-examined by Mr. Bali. Mr. Bail moved for the dismissal of Martin an 1 Chadwick.• Ho read thewarrant, which alleged that Mar tin paid City Solicitor Reinhardt $100 to obtain Information from him as to when warrants would be Issued against gamblers, whereas lie held that the evidence or the City Sultcitoi himself was that the $100 was paid for tile privilege of engaging in tha policy business. He held that till warrant alleged a particular thing which had not been proved. He also argued that Chadwick was cot con nected with tho bribery as lie was not present when the inonov was paid. Attorney-General Ward in reply, read from the Revised Code relating to bribery, and pointed out that aid ing and abetting bribery, such as lio claimed had been dono by Chadwick, really constituted bribery under tbs law, and that Chadwick If indicted, would be indicted for bribery tho same as Martin would.
