All ' court costs and lawyers' fees? were also entered against' the defendant. Commercial ' Councilor yon Gross of Baireuth, "representative of, the ; Wag ner heirs,' testified that , the Wagner family hd not received a cent from the Baireuth performances.

Buffalo Woman Says He Tried to Rob Her Driven All Around the City and Then Tried to Escape. New York, Feb 5. A cabman known as Moffatt has just been held for trial on a 'charge of robbery made by Miss Clayborn Sheldon of Buffalo, who told 'Magistrate Barlow a remarkable story of heT arrival here as a stranger and her attempt to reach a reputable Broadway hotel through the medium of a cab. : . ... ; Miss Sheldon jcani from Buffalo January 15, she says, to seek a posi tion, having achieved at home some thing of a reputation as a vocalist. She had been directed to an up-town hotel, but,' at the Weehawken terminal of the railroad, took the ferryboat for Franklin street instead of West For. ty-second street, and landed down town. "I told the first cabman I met that I wanted to go to the hotel," said she. "Heisald it would cost $5, and I got into the cab. 1 f f ', , "I do not know how many miles I was driven, but hours passed, and it seemed to me as if I had made the circuit of the city several times. Every time I spoke to the cabman he said that we. were getting near the hotel.; .! '-v.v r ;.. "I , could not understand what the cabman meant and after we passed a familiar corner I stopped the cab, determined to get out. , " 'Where am I?' I said. '"You're near the hotel,' he re plied. "'Well, I, will walk the rest of the way, I said. "Then I tried to get out. The cab man seized me and forced me into the seat.v .-.. ; " 'You will not leave this cab,' said he, until you pay me $100.' I asked what for, and he told me to give up the money to avoid trouble.; "I screamed and he seized me , by the throat He told me to keep quiet for my own good, but I kept on fight ing ag well as I could. Then he threw a handkercuief over my face, il think it was 'saturated with chloroform. It made me sick. I ceased to struggle and do notreeall anything until some time afterward I found myself lying in a gutter. I was dazed and sick. After a while I was able to walk and found that I wag at Forty-ninth street and E4ghth avenue' nearly two ' miles tronr th e hotel." v i " ' The woman immediately sought a policeman to whom she told her story. She had been robbed of all her money, $45, a ring worth $175, her watch and many small articles. . Perhaps the most remarkable part of the affair which had occurred in a street which is crowded i night and day, then developed. From the wo man's description the policeman im mediately recognized the cabman ' and set out to find him. He has just aiv rested Moffatt in a distant section of the city ' and learned he retired from the cab driving profession "January 16, the .day after the hold-up. i.ae officer fully confirmed his part of -the adven ture and Moffatt was. identified In court by the complainant. , . .

Deposed Detective to Re signPolice Department TalK of . Town. - - Never has the police department of this city been in such a demoralized condition as it is to-day. Everything app-ears to be topsy-turvy. The men are disheartened and dlscouxaged. They do not feel liko working. They are not in the proper frame of 'mind to render the best of service to the city.i They are all, young and old, on the anxious seat. They, are worrying as to what will be the next move or the board . of public ' safety. ; What heads will be cut off next? is the ques tion that all 'are discussing when they happen to meet. This condition of aff alrs has been produced by what Baker Ielly, terms "the radical ' act of the board in dis missing three policemen' and retiring five others." Not only are the older, members of the police department worrying, but also the younger mem bers.' V ' One of the youngest and ablest po licemen on the force stated to a, re porter last, night that if he saw an op portunity of securing a fairly good po sition in a factory or store he will eagerly grasp it, though he should re ceive 25 or 50 cents less a day. The men are discouraged and disheartened with the criticism which they have been receiving from the city authori ties. They have hardships and di---cultles enough to encounter in tbe per formance of their duties without being summoned before the safety board every now and then. In connection with this demoralizing condition of affairs in the police de partment, it is stated that Patrolman Thomas O'Gornlan Is about to hand In his resignation. ; The primary cause of his rumored resignation is attributed to the fact that he- Is much displeased with the action of the safety board in reducing him from the detective force to the ranks of the patrolmen for no apparent reason. i When Sergeant Cahey resigned as detective some months ago, Lieutenant Dodds and Officers Kennaugh and O'Gorman were appointed as detec tives. They have done good work an. no complaints have been heard against them. The' three men worked hand in hand and there was no friction or eal ousy. It is doubtful if three other men could be found who would work so harmoniously, hortly after the new safety board was appointed, Oui cer O'Gorman was removed and ' Offl place. . The former detective Is consid ered one of the ablest men on the force and his retirement would be a distinct loss to the department. ' It is said that he intends to enter business. The safety board is being harshly criticised on all sides not only by demo ocrats but also by republicans. The statements of Baker Thomas Kelly in last;; evening's . Democrat ; appear ... to, voice the sentiment ot a . large major ity of the people in the city. ,' It was said to-day that at the meet ing of the board of safety called for 4 o'clock this afternoon in the tower, five ; policemen will be placed on the reserve . list, two discharged and one resignation received and accepted. There may not be any truth in this, but whether there is or not little else is being talked of and it goes with out saying, that, all the officers are more or less upset over what is going on, for no man knows from one mo ment to .another 1 when someone will come along and tell him that his head has been cut off. Many claim that when the board gets through with Its weeding out process it should make the fact known by issuing a card to the effect that for the present the axe had been buried. A"GAME:::"v: OF BLUFF. Cost England Good Bit, However. Sir v Henry Bannerman V Gives Inside Facts Away He Says That Cham berlain Thought Boers Were Only Bluffing. London, - Feb 5. An interesting lit tle bit of ante-war. history was re vealed by the liberal leader, Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman, in the house of commons to-day,- in the course of the debate on the amendment to the ad dress in reply to the speech from the throne moved , yesterday by Mr Rob son, liberal, setting forth that the evi dence presented to the war commis sion disclosed grave mismanagement and negligence on the part of the gov ernment during the South African war. Referring to Joseph Chamberlain's jibes at the attitude of the opposition when Mr Chamberlain yesterday de fended the coutsc of the government toward the Transvaal, Sir Henry said that when Mr Chamberlain interviewed him June 20, 1899, prior to the war, and asked him if the opposition would support the government in sending out 10,000 troops to Cape Colony, he, Mr Henry, expressed surprise, whereupon Mr Chamberlain said: "You need not bo alarmed. There will be no fighting. We know those fellows won't fight Wo are playing a game of bluff." As a result, Sir Henry added, the opposition refused to relieve the gov ernment of any responsibility regard ing the course it chose to pursue. The statement of Sir Henry was greeted with mars of laughter from the opposition benches. Mr Chamberlain, In reply, said he did not remember using the word "bluff." His only object in approach ing Sir Henrwas to make sure that the South African ouestion should not oe treated In a party spirit, so that the Boers might be convinced of tho earnestness , of Great Britain. .
