Letters Were Read Before Police Craft

New York, March 21. Letter read
yesterday before the alderinanic commit
tee investigating police graft showed
mm .Mayor i.uynor and loiice commis
sioner Waldo were warned aizainst the
character of Police Lieutenant Charles
Becker as far back as Auirust, 101 1. John
...Lynch, hrotlier-in-law of Becker, wii
is now in tlif death house at Sing Sing
for tin murder of Herman lo iithul,
the gambler, bitterly denounced the for
nier police ollicer iif a letter to the may
or The letter was referred to Commis
sioner Waldo, who told the mayor that
"this seems to be a family row" and
"Hecker is doing excellent work."
'"One of my sisters is. unfortunately,
his wife, works for him, teaches school,"
Lynch wrote of Hecker, "and he hero
like takes her money. She being away, lie
nks another of my sister to come to
ins house yesterday to cook, hut Intim1
diately attempted to assault her. She
successfully resisted him, threatening to
cut Ji i in with a carving knife, whereupon
he got bis revolver and shouted that lie
would sboot her.
''By yelling 'murder,' she was able to
get out. He threatened her with arr:t
and said he would get out one of 1m
squad (the 'strong-ahm squad) to catch
her on thevstreet some night and lock her
up for soliciting. ' She came home crying
and with her waist torn."
"As further evidence of his character,
I would say that he has frequently ex
pressed the sentiment regarding your
misfortune of a year ago that Gallagher
should be electrocuted for not having
killed you."
The Gallagher referred to was the man
who shot Mayor Gaynor aboard a steam
ship at Hohoken. Becker's wife stood by
Becker staunchly during his exposure
and trial and is now aiding in his appeal
to the higher court.
Another letter, written to the mayor
last March by one Henry Williami,
asked that Hecker be investigated. "He
is getting more ' money than a former
chief of police," the writer said, naming
the chief. This missive was sent by the
mayor to police headquarters; there it
was turned over to Becker himself, the
record showed, "for investigation and re

Becker's report was that lie had as
signed a detective to find the writer and
that the detective had failed to do so.

A SPLENDID GIFT
EAST AND WEST WERE
CUT OFF TO-DAY
' Great Storm Severed Wire Communica
tion As Effectively As If There
Were Chinese Wall.
New York, March 21. The East nd
Wept were severed today as effectively
as if a Chinese wall had sprung up over
night in the Mississippi and Ohio river
valleys. Storms, which raged Inst night
and continued this morning, caused one
of the worst wire blockades the tele
graph and telephone companies ever con
tended with. Communication between
Chicago and the East and South ceased
at 9 o'clock this morning, after the line
men had made a losing fight with the
elements. Every one of the 200 trunk
wires between New York and Chicago
were out of commission this morning.
The farthest westerly point which could
be reached from New York was Mcui-
phis.
Last night's storm swept , Arkansas,
Mississippi, western Tennessee and ,
southeast Kentucky. Much property w..s j
damaged, but no loss of life is reported
The storm is moving eastward.
For Sotrial Welfare Laboratories Has
' ' Been Made. - .
' New York, March 21. A gift of $050,.
000 . by M rs. El iza"bcth M i Ibank Ander
son for social welfare laboratories, ti
be conducted by the New York Asso
ciation for Improving the Condition of
the Poor, was announced by the asso
ciation last night.
The gift is not for relief of dependent
individuals or families or for charity or
ganizations, but is to be used exclusive
ly to foster preventive and constructive
social measures. In general, it is in
tended to foster those activities which
are calculated in the words of the donor,
to prevent sickness and thus, dimmish
poverty, such as the promotion of clean
liness and sanitation and to aid in se
curing a proper food supply."
Washington. D. C, March 21. Easter
will probably be cold,' possibly with rain,
and will be altogether unfavorable for
an Easter parade, according to the
weather man, who said today: "A t4
rible wind and rain storm, now over
central Indiana, is coming east, followed
by a cold wave unprecedented at this
time of the yeur. . While the cold wave
may not reach the East in all its sever
ity, tomorrow and probably Sunday will
be marked by ruin throughout the East,
with steadily falling temperature. The
rain may be over before Sunday, but
the cold and wind will remain."

The appraisal of the Central Vermont
Railway company for taxation in Ver
mont was the matter before the state
board of appeal at the .State House in
Montpelier today, it having been taken
up late yesterday afternoon, following
the completion of the Newport A. Rich
ford case.
In this latter-case the road was ap
praised at $S40,000, but the state thought
it ought to be more. E. A. Cook opened
the argument for the state. He urged
that the value of the stocks and bonds
afforded no proper criterion for the vat
nation of this line. As a single road
it is of small value. As 1 connecting
link in a great system it is of much
larger value ihe Connecticut . Pas
stimpsic river road owns the Newport &
Kieh ford, and the only outlet for ne
Canadian Pacific to Boston and adjacent
territory is over the track of this rond
To be fair, this road must be consid
ered as a part of one of the great
transportation systems of the country.
he said.
Judge F. E. Alfred of. Newport In
sisted that the greater part of the value
of the bonds was due to their be:ng
guaranteed by the Connecticut & Pas
sumpsie Rivers road, and that this guar
anty, which made the bonds marketable
should be deducted from the value of
the bond. There was no evidence that
the stock of the road Mas worth a sinj'e
dollar but be was willing to concede
that it was worth $10,000. The company
received flH.OOO rental per year and pays
in Interests on bonds, etc., $17,500.
Wrner Graham closed the . argument
for the state. This case is considered
of much importance, not no much on ac
count of the amount involved as in cre
ating a precedent for valuing other line
forming part of the great system.
The appraisal of the Central Ver
mont railroad, as made bv former Tat
Commissioner C-ushman. wis f9.8.0,OOt),
and State Treasurer Deavitt proposed
to increase it to $10,601,523. Treas
urer Deavitt explained to the board
how he reached that valuation. Of a
total stock i'sne of $3.00O,00O, the firsnd
Trunk holds $2,101,000 and carries ibis
at par in. its reports. The remainder is
valued at an insignificant amount and
be placed the value of the stock at $2,-
