Alderman Porter and his constables vrere
' put on trial yesterday for alleged conspir
acy. The cases are old ones and are similar
to those for which Detective Bander and his
assistants are now serving time. The testi
mony developed its very racy.
The trial of Alderman W.f H. Porter and
his three constables, Thomas Packer, Elijah
Bheppard and Tom Carney, was taken np
before Judge Slagle in the Criminal Conn
yesterday. Thomas M. Marshall. William
Beardon, James E. O'Donnell and William
Urennen represented the defendants. District
Attorney Porter and Clarence Burleigh,
Esq., appeared for the prosecution. Mr.
Bnrleigh represented the Department of
Public Safety. The entire forenoon was
taken op in the selection of a jury, which
was finally made np as follows:
Levi Gregg, James Kewell, Joseph Berlcblle,
Michael Otway. Gottlieb Kolllncor. John Field
ing, John Dold, Thomas S. Maple, George
Glass Jacob Beckert, Scott Dibert and Will
iam T. McCann.
Attorney Bnrleigh made tho opening ad
dress, in which he briefly outlined the case.
Hugh Daly was tbe first witness called. Hetesti
fiedtnat hefcnew all tbe defendants, and that he
sad formerly been employed by the Porter De
tective Agency. Alderman W. H. Porter was
the general manager and Elijah Sbeppard
secretary. All court cases were sent In with
Constable Packer's name. Henry Krusa and
Perry Bailer were also employed by the agency.
Tbe witness knew of assault and battery suits
to have been discharged, owing to lack of evi
dence. The witness flid not receive any wages;
all he got was his costs in cases. In all cases
settled the money was collected by Constable
Bbeppard. Cards were seat out by tbe agency,
but they were legitimately soliciting business.
HOT ONE WAS SETTLED.
Mabel Gilbert testified that she lived at No.
77 Second avenue. She was protecuted before
Alderman Porter last spring. Constable Sbep
pard with three others came to her house to ar
rest her. Tho charges against ber were for
keeping a disorderly bouse, selling liquor with
out license and selling on Sunday. Witness
had four girls in her hnuse.and Constable Sbep
pard informed ber that a forfeit of $10 each for
tbe girls and J100 for herself could be put up.
Witness put up MO for ber girls andtben en
tered ball for ber appearance before Alderman
Cassidy. Th hearing was set for the following
week. The case was aitcrward dismissed. She
rever beard who tboprdsecntor was. A friend
of hers named Max Friedman went witb her.
Max Friedman testified that be went to the
Alderman's office with Mabel Gilbert. He
spoke to the 'Squire about the case. He said
the prosecutor was nor present and everything
would be all right, Tbe hearing was set for tbe
following week, and then he was informed that
the nrosecutor was not present, but It wo uld
cost him 165. One of the constables told the
witness to put tne money in a arawer, in a desk
that was in tbe back room. This be did. Al
derman Porter was in tbe front office at the
tune. The witness had two bundles of money
In his pocket and pnt the wrong bundle in tbe
drawer, which contained SSO. He afterwards
returned to tbe office and the Alderman gave
him back the Slo.
nr the 'squire's pocket.
Lottie Brown, of No. 78 First avenne, was
prosecuted before Alderman Porter for keep
ing a disorderly house and selling liquor w ith
out license. She was arrested by Constables
Bheppard and Henry Krusa. Tbe hearing was
fixed for Friday. A man named Casper Left
had ths case fixed for her. Witness gave Leff
$35, which he put in an envelope and placed in
the 'Squire's pocket, bhe went to the office on
Friday, but tbe prosecutor did not appear, and
cbe was dismissed. Henry Krusa was the
prosecutor in tbe case.
' ' Clara Meyers, of No. 85 Third avenne, was
prosecuted last winter for selling liquor with
out a license, and was arrested by Constable
Packer. She put $35 In an envelope ana gave
it to Alderman Porter. Henry Krusa was tbe
prosecutor, and as he did not appear she was
MaudByan testified to having been with Miss
Meyers and saw her give the envelope to the
'Squire. She did not know what it contained.
Lou Arthur, of No. 125 Second avenne. was
prosecuted before Alderman Porter, and was
arrested on tbe 8th of last February by Perry
Bailey. She was sued for being a disorderly
Jierson, keeping a disorderly house and selling
iquor without . license. She gave ball for a
hearing, the bail being entered before Alder
man Cassidy. On Tuesday, tbe day of the
hearing, sbe went to the 'boulre'a office and on
Alderman Porter's advice pleaded guilty and
was fined S10 and costs in one case,
SETTLED FOE THIETT-FIVE.
The hearings in the other two cases were
postponed for a week. Meanwhile Constable
Sbeppard wanted her to settle for $50. Wit
ness refused to give that much, but offered
$35. She was told that she conld settle
for that sum at the 'Squire's office.
Bhe went to the office and handed the
rgoncy to Constable bheppard. Alderman
-Pcrter afterward discharged her. telling Perry
Bailey, who was the prosecutor, that the wit
ness had been out three times and he bad not
appeared. As tbe thing appeared to be more
of a persecution than a prosecution he would
have nothing more to do with it. The witness
never heard anything more about the suits.
2uMs.MaryMcMlnniman testified to having
been prosecuted three times before Alderman
Porter for fortune-telling. Tbe first was entered
by Henry Krusa, and she gave an attorney $70
to have it settled np. The second suit was en
tered by Perry Bailey, and never came to a
hearing. Tbe third suit was entered against
witness and her husband by Richard Lavine.
This suit as tried in court. The witness was
fined $170 and her husband sent to the work
house. dr. Marshall conducted the cross-examination,
and some laughable testimony was pro
duced. The witness stated that she handled
Mr. Marshall What kind of cards; vlsltlnc
