Sheehan, sec? retary of ('ommissioner Waldo with a man supposed to he getting graft.' The testimony was given by I). J. Kelleher. a private detective, who said he had been assigned in December last by Alfred G. Johnson, the under sheriff whom Keith accused in his af tldavlt of having demanded the $10.- i 000 from him. to follow a lawyer i named Norton. This man "by com? mon rumor. 1 hi ?Vi J, "was supposed to be collecting police graft from his office at No 111 Broadway. He trailed Norton, he testified. to Sheehan's house. Sheehan discovered him there and kept him locked in while he sent for two detectives, but he was not arrested. Norton, he said collapsed. A few days laler, Kelleher testi? fied, he met sheehan by appointment and the commissioners secretary said to him: "What have you got on me " "I told him." said the witness, "that 1 had nothing on him. but that I did have something on George C. Norton and that I had been sent to find out if Norton ever met Sheehan. and that 1 had found him and that my Job wa< done. I told Sheehan that Norton e/Sji supposed to be getting graft. He told me then he should be arrested. I stated that ' was a police job not mine.' Police Capt. Hernard J. Kelleher, a brother of the witness, testified that Commissioner Waldo had said to him last June: "1 am \ery sorry that a member of your family should have had one of my men under surveil? lance." The Kdlehers were preceded on th? stand by Johnson, who denied he h ol eVCJf demanded money from Keith. "I saw him a couple of times." siid Johnson, "and then he said he ktn w the |ob could be fought and that he had the n.oney to pay. I told him he was a fool if he thought he could hu Qefl I'.ingham. He came to see me again and again until 1 was sick 01 hix face and of him. and i told him t > ?d out of my sight and to keep (>u? Johnson admitted that he had had Norton investigated out of curiosity but ha bud stopped without learn n "anything Important*" Cap! Keith'i testimony was In the main an elaboration of ihe already published charges made in ids affidavit which was produced at the beginning of the day's proceeding! by Commis? sioner Waldo. Reith swore he had "received word" that Johnson wanted to see him, and that upon visiting him Johnson informed him that his name was about to be oertlfled for promo? tion. Johnson then took him, he said, to see Thomai J. Hassett. former sec? retary to Mayor McChllan, us "the man who could do the business" for him. "Hussett asked m* some questions," testitied the witness, 'and later Igt word to call at the home Of Johnson. I went there and .Johnson told me that he had done all he could do for me and that I would have to put up 110.000." Upon falling to put up the money, Keith said he was passed over on eli? gibility list. He Went to see Mr. Bing ham to find Out Why, he said, and was told by him that he had "the right to promote whom he - pleased, and that when he was eady to promote him he would.' Keith absolved Com? mission, r Blngham from any part in the alleged practice of selling promo? tions Keith said he would have been wil? ling to have paid $10,000 for promo? tion. The job was not worth it, he declared, "but you don't have to work nights. You can get plenty of sleep." Gen Blngham testified he had not promoted Keith simply because he would not make a good police captain. NEW YORK GUNMEN ARRAIGNED Two or Men who Fired at Itos<nlhal Plead "Not Guilty.* New N ork.
