1HILE today's hearing of the
Luxow committee was not
sensational, it was instruc

Rawitser, a dealer in raKS, testified to
his firm mint; the sidewalk for bailing
and shipping rags, and being slimmon
d to court for obstrneting the side
walk. Ho compromised with some
allied court officer by the pay
ment of two sums of $25 and $50. The
officer told the witness that it might
be settled by a little annual contribu
tion, and thereafter the witness paid
$10 a vear for two or throe years, and
the firm enjoyed lmmnnity from an
noyance and porsfontion, Then the
tariff was raised to $50 a year. The
money was always put in an envelope
and banded to the officer. The reason
civon for the increase in the rate from
$20 to $50 wai, the witneas said, accord
ing to his best recollection, that a new
captuiu was in charge of the preeiuct.
been made against him for encumber

that if the soda water stand was not
removed immediately on receipt of the
notice it would be taken to the eorpora

plainants will bo subpoenaed before the
Nathan Levy, of No. 215 Ninety
eighth street, said he had a soda water
stand iu front of his house which did
not encroach on the sidewalk. A conplo
of days ago a man called at his place
and told bim that bis brother must
leave town and uot testify against
John J. Ryan. The witness said that
his brother would not go and the man
then told him that he would not be al

John F. Pnpke, a coffee and tea mer
chant, at 103 Warren street, said MV
need the sidewalks; that he had been
summoned to court once for obstruct
ing the sidewalk and fined $5 or $10
Since that time he bad not paid any
more fines. He had been summoned
again, but bis partner, Frederick Wio
man, who was a member of Tammany
Hull, saw the judge and got the matter
settled or excused.
Another case of payment to the po
lice for the nse of the sidewalk was tea
tilled to by Inadore Berg, dealer in
woollen rags and waste at No. 172
Duane street. He said that he had been
fined several times for encumbering
the sidewalks, when one day he spoke
to the policemun on the beat of the an
noyance he had been subjected to
in this way. The officer told bim
that be would soml some one to
him who would "fix" the mat
ter all right. Another officer named
Kelly called on bim, and after some
discussion tho officer told him that it
would cost him $50. Ho compromised
on $25, and the money was paid in the
nsual way by blng handed to the offi
cer in an envelope. Tho witness there
after was subjected to no interference
in the use of tho sidewalk.
Henry Schuche-t, sn old German
carpenter, of 42S East Fourteenth
street, was the next , 'tness. The
witness told of his having savod some
money and bought n little place in
Pearl street twenty years ago, which
he started to arrange as n saloon and
eating bouse. Une night Captain
Williams and a couple of police offi
cers entered the house, took the key
out of the door and arrested the wit
ness and his wife on a charge of keep
ing a disorderly house. On the way to
the station bouse Captain Williams
asked bim, the witness said,
what he meant by opening a
disorderly bouse without first see
ing bim, and said that if he (the wit
ness) paid him $75 down and $75 a
month afterwards, he could contlnne
to keep a house of disrepute. The wit
ness insisted that his house was a re
spectable one, and be refused to com
ply with William's demand. Tho
prisoners were admitted to bail in $1,
000. and that was the last of the case.
Williams threatened him with arrest
again when he asked for the key of his
house. Ho returned to his house, but as
he feared the police and did not want
to have any trouble with Williams, he
gave up the bouse and returned to biB
business as a carpenter,
George Alexnndor, a native of Con
statinople. 27 years of age, told a tale
of police blackmail and tyranny and
disgraceful neglect of duty wblcb at
tracted the closest attention of the
committee, From hit story it appears
that he kept a small restaurant at No.
22 Catherine slip. Soon after he
bought the place, a policeman called
bis attention to a small stand outside
the restaurant containing the uinal
sample steak, etc., and grnffiy told
him to take it in or pay $5 every
two months tor the privilege of keeping
it outside. He said that he could not
afford to do so, but tbe officer was ob
durate, and therefore he pawned his
watch to get the money, as the officer
insisted on the money being paid at
once. He paid the $5 regularly for a
year, or until about the beginning of
1894. Then he went into business with
a partner in a small restaurant at 3
James slip. It was while in that place
that he bad his worst experience. He
refused to pay for n stand inside
the stoop line. Shortly afterward
he saw a thief on night steal
a lobster irom nis winnow, no
ran out and caught the thief
around tbe waist close to a policeman
whom he oalled on for assistance. The
thief bit bim on tbe head with the
obster aud ran away, but fell as he
run. The witness ngsin canea on ino
officer, one John Adams, to arrest the
thief, but with volley of oaths the of
ficer told him to "go to out of
here," and refused to assist him or
arrest tho thief. The next Alexander
made coniplainst against Adams
at police headquarters, and in a
couple of days he was summoned
to polico headquarters to testify
against Adams. The result of that
trial, tho witneassaid, he did not know,
but be did know that after be made
the complaint against bim two ward
dotectives culled at his restaurant, one
at a time on two succeeding days, and
"baking their hands nt him. swore at
him and threatened to "send him to
prison," to "fix him," "do him" etc.
The witness said he was so afraid that
tbe police would "put up a job" on him
and ruin him that he gave up tbe busi
nees the day before ysstordav.

Bell, Lewis and Yates property skirm
ish linns were thrown out to renin -noiter
the eastern and western hills,
while tbe main body rested oil their

was reported in good shape and tbe

The streets aud bills surrounding tbo

going along with their work as if noth

ears at one mine were set on lire and
destroyed. Tho mine is owned and
operated by Jackmun & Ellsworth.
While there is a great ileal of excite

general opinion that thcro will be no

It is almost a certainty that Bell,

Slieclal to the Scrnntan Tribunt.
PlTTBTON, Pa., June 22. Another
tnngio in the complicated political
skein which has enmeshed the proposed
electric street railway proi:ctin this
borough has been supplied through tbe
desire of certain official friends of
President of Council Mangan to enjoy
transportation ovor tho contemplated
trolley line without the inconvenience
paying therefor. The version of
this little hitch narrated by Superin -tendut
Graham of tho Traction coin
pauy is that several days ago President
Mangan asked for three passes, one for
himBelf, one for Councilman M. N.
Donnelly ond one for Borough Attor
ney C. Frank Bohan.
Superintendent itiraham might have
concurred in this request had it been
the only made from oouncilmanic
quarters; out ha says it was not, and
broadly lnliuiates that wore he to lift
the Veil on all the overtures made to
him from various person occupying of
ficial or semi-official positions in the
government of PittstoD, there wonld
hi disclosed a spectacle of voracious
ness almost paralleling the findings of
the Lxow committee in New York.
President Siangan admits havinl'
iBked for three passes, at the n quest
of friends; bnt doilies having 4ono any
thing worse than that, aud evidently
dons not regard that request as consti
tuting a heinous crime.
What mikes Suporinteadont Gra
ham indignant is the fact that a few
lays after his rofnsul of tbe passes.
sixteen of the Traction company's
workmen wore arrestod and brought
before President Mangan, then officia
ting ns burgess in the absence of Bnr
gess Maloney, and were fined $3 apiece.
I. iter, when similar cases were tried
bofore the real burgess, the men were
discharged. Superintendent Graham's
spirit writhes at this contrast, and he
vows with solemn intensity that next
Monday night Attorney Bedford. John
C Eno and himself will go beforo

with tales of thrilling woo.

tomorrow: The;week hasgbeon rich in
promise but poor in performance. It
was confidently promised that exports

It was promised that the eud of the
coal strike would bring immediate re
covery of industries, bnt partial re
sumption of work discloses compara
tive scantiness of demand for products,
while the miners of Ohio in convention
have repudiated the settlement and
eontinuo the strike, and in muuy local!
ties it lingers, and above all the coke
worm s swiKe diocks most or the iron
manufacture in the central region, less

It was balteved that late ohmnaei in
the tariff bill would be more satisfac
tory to industries, bnt the new sehod
tiles have uot yet diminished hesita
tion. Ihe exports of gold havo been
ijti.ioO.OUO during the week. The floed
ol money from the interior, amounting
to about 100, 000 for the first half of
1894 continues to show the greatly re
ducod demand for funds, and at th
flame time heavy liquidations in re-or
ganizing railroads, especially bv for
eign holders, have operated a- a mag
net to draw abroad the unused coin of
the country. The treaenry gold re
serve is reduced lower than it was at
any time in Jaunary and government
proposed to ship lugal tenders to in
terior points against doposits of gold in
the treasury at ratB which virtually
constitute a premium on gold.:
It was confidently expected that the
settlement of the tariff rates on textiles
by the senate would improve the condi
tion of textile manufacturers, but there
is scarcely any evidenco of such a re
sult SB yet. the large sales of cotton be
ing distinctly traceable to mere weath
er conditions and to further conce
sious by sellers. Wool is less active
und rather weaker, with salos equal to
abont last year for the same week last
There is much disappointment that
tho partial termination of the coal
strike does not promptly enlarge the
demaud for Iron and steel products,
which is evidently too narrow, us yet,
to support much increase of produc
tion, western orders are compara
tively liberal, though much smaller
than in other years, but no improve
ment is seen at Philadelphia, while in
tbe centrHi region the continuing
coko strike strino and grave uncertainty
bout the July settlement of iron work
