MURPHY ESCAPES CALL AS WITNESS IN GRAFT PROBES _ . i Tammany Leader Will Not Tes tify in “John Doe” Pro= ceedings Today. STILWELL ISSUES NEW DENIAL OF “CONFESSION” 'Absolves All from Secrecy and ‘‘Little Black Book” Loses Its Sting. XKW YORK. Oct. 31.—With many witnesses, including John A. Hennes sy. called today for the John Doe pro ceedings lieforO Chief Magistrate JIc Adoo; and with Stephen J. Stllwell, convicted senator, absolving from se crecy all who took part in conversa tions with him at Sing Sing, the full contents of the "little black book” were likely to become public before long. Already, however, it lias been es tablished that the "book” which Hen nessy has been holding up as con taining secrets of gravest importance Is really a harmless affair which holds ito substantial charge against any one. The potency of the "little black book' lay In its mystery, and the bower of Mr. Hen newsy seems to have been that of a veiled prophet Stllwell himself says that he mav tell all about It this evening. r The managers of the campaign of Kdward R. McCall, Democratic candi date for mayor, gave out a Statement last midnight, which had been' re ceived from Stllwell. In this brief written statement I Stllwell calls upon Mr. Ilennessv. Warden Clancy and others to tell all they know. The substance of it is that, he has made no confession and has none to make involving any per son: that he was Informed by friends of Governor Sulzer that aid for Sul zer would mean his pardon and that the pardon was conditioned upon/his making affidavits against Charles F. Murphy, State Senators Wagner and Frawley and Assemblymen Smith aud Levy which he could not do. V«rphy win Not Appear. It had been expected that Charles i l'\ Alurphy.

It was said at noon today, how ever, that Mr. Murphy wdpld not be called as a witness.' Tt was also said on good authority that there was no reason why he should be called. Mr. Hennessy has accused Murphy of being the arch grafter jn the po lotical system in this State. Mr. Mur phy has called Hennessy an "in famous liar” and Hennessy has re torted by qualifying Mr. Alurphy as many variegated kinds of liar. Many Witnesses Called. * Besides Mr. Murphy the list of wit nesses includes Treasurer McLean, of the Democratic State Committee; J. .Sergeant Cram, former Judge Samuel Beardsley, Nicholas F. Brady, Nor man E. Mack, E. S. Kerbaugh, Tom Foley. William J. Conners, Morgan J. O'Brien and . many others well known in/ politics. Enthusiasm for the Fusion munic ipal ticket headed by John Purroy Alitohel reached Its height last nlglit at a monster mass meeting In Madi son Square Garden. An audience which packed the big amphitheatre heard the mayoralty candidate him self, former Mayor Seth Ixiw, who once led a Fusion cause to victory; Oscar S. Straus, former ambassador to Turkey, and others attack Tain many Hall, Edward E. McCall, Its mayoralty candidate, and Charles F. Murphy, Its leader. Mr. Straus aroused the great crowd to a demonstration when he de nounced Tammany Hall for what he declared was its recently-displayed power to conduct its own recall and make and unmake a governor. "I do not purpose permitting any one man to frame a recall for me—and. abovo all, not Charles F. Murphy,” he de clared. Seth Low, as chairman, caught the crowd when in answering his own question, “How can Tammany be de stroyed?” he replied, “By putting it on a hunger strike and not trying to forcibly feed it.” Edward E. McCall addressed a number of Democratic meetings at j which he departed from his usual ] custom and mentioned by name John j A. Hennessy, Governor Sulzer’s graft ; investigator, who has brought many charges against McCall and Murpliy in his nightly speeches for the Fusion ticket. “The charges of Hennesy and Sulzer, Instead of winning a Fusion victory, will by their perfldlousness damn the fusion cause before elec tion day.” McCall declared. Hennesay (onllnitfn Attack. Hennessy continued his spirited campaign last night, his principal ad dress being dell^Mjed at Cooper Union. He devoted fha. greater part of his talk to Charles F. Murphy, re iterating charges he has made against the Tammany leader, Incidentally heaping ridicule upon him for his dec laration that he returned to Anthony X, Urady, now dead, the latter’s |25, Otis campaign contribution. Former Judge Samuel A. Beardsley, who took the money from Brady to Murphy, yesterday affirmed Leader Murphy’s declaration that it had been returned to Mr. Brady. "Last night ” said Hennessy in his Cooper Union speech, “I heard that Judge Samuel Heardsley was to come out with a statement that the 126,000 went back to Mr. Brady. I told the assistant district attorney to send for Mr. Beardsley, but when we went after him we found he had gone to Buffalo. Mr. Beardsley knows that money never went back—that it went j iiAn Charlie Murphy’s pocket or down to Wall Htret-t or for some other Tam many purpose."

Several months ago 1 the teacher in question, who was In the Bruce Street School, asked the | board for a leave of absence. The application was accompanied by a s doctor’s certificate, which, in general I terms, set forth that the applicant j needed rest. The I* r<l insisted on more specific reasons and when these j were not forthcoming, action on the ; application was deferred. Yesterday, the cause of the teach ers remaining away from school be-1 came known to persons in the office of Superintendent Poland, but in such ! a way that they could not place it before the board officially. As a re-' suit the question was discussed in the abstract at committee meetings. For the purpose- of determining their power in a matter of this kind, the board appealed to its attorney, Charles M. Myers, asking him if there was any legal obstacle to pre vent a mother-teacher from teaching In his reply. Attorney Myers said he would rather not give an opinion, j but believed the teachers' tenure of office act practically put the matter up to tt)e board to determine “just cause*.'' for the dismissal of a teacher. The resignation of the teacher at last night's meeting ended the ques tion so far as this particular case is concerned. First U. S. Ambassador to Spain Received by Alfonso MADRID. Spain. Oct.
