Detective .1. S. Hut Us, of New York,
was the star witness ul yestetday'n

Melvln, went Into a back loom, whete
he explained to Melvln that he was

how many votes could bo mustetcd for
such action and, If theie was a sttfll
clint number, ho would bo with them.
Harils gave Melvln $.10 and they patt
ed. Hauls then went to the Delavvuie,
Lackawanna and Western station,
where he talked with 1 F. McCann,
