A DETKCTIVE’S STORIES.
THE DIFFICULTY CORPORATIONS
have in getting justice.
Some Interesting Cases-The Cause of
Ireland The Mar Who Dignifies it in
This Country Late National League
New York. Oct. B, —A large, thick-set
man. whose dress and branng mfL wtol
great prvwpertty. sat at a tanie in the M r
ton House the other evr .Bg. He doesn’t
look it. but lie is a detective, th- very an
tithesis in apgiearan -e of the gaunt. k ~-n
eyed. reticent indiv.dcai that the average
w.-.ier Ynakm> i. • ty: aU detective f -s
Btnry. He taikal freely, bat n-ver in-lu
“How about that case of an organize!
here in New York to bi. kmail a
prominent Boston man C was avksd of the
“Its a great 'as I .' sail be. •' There has
been nothing much more important since
the time tbat that '*.. ow g A his life insured
with nearly every .mpany in New York,
and then pretea-wsi to ae at a iittie country
town near here H hai secured a corjao
and left it m hi- reran at the bote!. It was
regular! v certified that the corpse was that
of the man who had taken the room, an 1 his
relatives bore the ixidy away. Tbe fellow,
however, was indiscreet enough when be
had gone away to write to his gir!—it - this
writing to his gir! that usually leads to the
detection of a criminal —awl by im-an- of
those letters we traced the man to Houtu
America, where be now is.
“The most troublesome cases detective*
have, who work for corporations, are those
known as accident suits. There are now
pending more than 6,000 suits for damages
against the elevated rood* of New York.
Jlere is a sample: One day a laborer vra*
going to work, and w hile passing under the
Third avenue elevated road a <-arcless, work
man on the latter line let a niece of timber
fall and hit him on the head and shoulder.
He got a scalp wound and a bruise of the
shoulder, but sustained no serious injury
A lawyer got hold of him and persuaded
him to bring suit against tbe c unpany lor
$30,000 damages. Contrary to the lawyer's
instructions, he went out on the street to
enjoy his leisure. His counselor found him
and hustled him up into the garret over a
saloon,and practically made him a prisoner.
We found out where he wa* and I set out
to get at him. I went into the saloon under
b:s lodgings one night, drank vile whisky
until along toward morning, pretended to
be very drunk and was earned into an
upper room directly under tiie apartment*
occupied by the claimant. When my com
panions of the sal' on liad left rue I climbed
up a ladder, forced open a trap door and
found the man 1 was after. I was disguised
as a sea captain, and the man, not suspect
ing my identity, told me how and why he
had been made a prisoner. 1 ]>ervuaded him
to descend with me down the fire escape,
promising to take him to sea with me and
pay him liberally. Once outside I con
ducted him to the offices of the railroad
company, arid there he was offered SSOO if
he would sign a release from all claim
against the company. He readily gave his
signature to tbe document and w ent home
happy. If he had brought suit he might
have’gotten nearly all that was demanded
in his action.”
i.re , l - L it . ll l it: n
Dul DOW Lilt* uw.,
persisted the listener.
„ Wil get at that bv and by,” said the
detective. T>-t me tell you more about ac
cident suit* One night a man was going
home along Fifty-second street and fell part
way through the hatchway in front of a
house owned by a woman of comparatively
modest means. He went home and at once
instituted proceedings for heavy damages,
claiming that he had been totally iaralyzed
in his lower limbs by tbe accident. I was
employed by the defendant to ferret out the
case. ’1 hired a physician to examine the
man. He turned the battery on him and
secured ample evidence that lie wa.* :-.mu
laiing paralysis. I hired a room directly
opp*siite that occupied by the alleged invalid
and watched his movements with a field
gias* I -aw him walking about his room and
ay tertifi-'id at tb- trial. Thedoctor eorroiio
rated my story, but tlie man had employed
attendants to carry him into the court room
and he acted his part so well that in spite of
ail the evidence we adduced the plaintiff
got $3,500 damages. I promised to prove
to the ilefenilant that the suit was a fraud
or to demand no pay for my services. In or
der to convince her 1 arranged that a ser
vant girl shouid go to work in apartments
adjoining those occupied by the claimant,
ribe discovered that two days after the trial
he was able Pi walk down stairs and get his
brer. When I nail proved this I accepted
the stipulated fee for my s -i-viees."
“Let me remind you that you haven't
told me yet about the blackmailing case,”
said the detective's listener.
“Pause a moment,” responded the detec
tive. “To prove to you that a corporation
has no chance with the average jury, let ine
tell you a case tliat once occured in Detroit.
A man liad Ix-en struck by a Michigan Cen
tral locomotive and injured. He brought
suit, claiming that the engineer hail not
sounded his bell as a warning while the en
gineer averred that the bell hail been con
stantly rung. The claimant won in the
lower court and the case was taken up to
a higher tribunal. The .Superintendent of
the road then determined Pi try an experi
ment. He boarded an engine going down
the line through the city, and stood in the
<ab with a disinterested witness. He rang
the bell as fast as possible, and saw to it
that the locomotive made only six miles an
hour. Officers of the company were
stationed at. several of the crossings and
they summoned witnesses who hail seen the
engine go by. Of a large number of these
only three swore that the locomotive's
bell wa* ringing. Home testified that
the engine was going forty miles an
hour and none of them fixed the rate of
speed at less than fifteen miles an hour.
They all, no doubt, intended to be sincere,
• but the case illustrated the unreliability of
the ordinary w itness against a corporation.
The company offered this evidence, but it
was defeated, nevertheless. You may not
lie a friend of the corporations, but it may
interest you to know that the Lake Shore
■road was defrauded of more than $350,000
in fraudulent claims for damages on ac
count of the Ashtabula disaster. You know
many of tbe laxlies were so completely con
sumed there that not a truce was left of
them. The false claimants set up fraudu
lent claims, and the company, unable at
the time Pi resist without occasioning too
much public indignation, compromised the
suits, but its claim agent discovered later
that they were groundless. ”
“Now please tell me about the black
mailing case,” insisted the listener.
The detective smiled, and said by wuv of
evasion: “Do you know that New York is
the most difficult city in the world for a
detective to shadow a man' The elevated
roails, for one thing, make it so. You start
out to follow a man. You must lie careful
not to let him see you. He takes a train on
the L road, rides to the first station, and
gets off Pi throw off his trail any supposed
shallower. Ho waits until the next comes
along, and then boards that. He may
change thus three times on a journey, and
if he wa s anybisly following his example, he
is pretty sure that lie is being shadowed,
and he skips out of sight. Try to follow him
on Broadway, and he can give you the slip
with the utmost ease as tie dodges in and
out of the crowd, or mukes his way through
side streets, only to emerge again on Broad
way a block or two away. It is quite the
custom to criticise the detective when n
criminal gives him the slip. I remember
the case of two eminent criminal lawyers
In the West who haul seen a great deal of
life. They were employed P> defend
Mollie Matches, one of the most
adroit pickpockets that, ever lived. They
cleared him and Mollie gave them a dinner.
At its conclusion the lawyers said: 'Matches,
you arc pretty good at your business, but
you couldn’t pick the pockets of two old
timers like ourselves.’ Matches smiled, but
did not meet their toasts with any declara
tion One of the attorneys wore a valuable
diamond duster pin oo bis shirt front. and

Anos J. Ccmuxes.
Any careful observer of New York life
v*. . and I think, that the Irish cause
-readily coming up m popular estimation,
while the cause of the Anarchists is drop
ping lower and lower towarlthe gutter.
Whether the big lexim that the thieves,
murderers and cotfaroai renegades of Euro
pean anarchism ikiw in this country will
receive wiien seven of their members are
hanged in Chicago on Nov. 11 will succeed
in lifting the tribe into prominence again is
and tibtful. Two wi-kely different cause* led
to the reversal of popular sentiment which
is n .w going on. Eugene Kelly, the tanker.
Is in the main responsible for the dignity
which the Irisn question now maintains,
w hile a dirty old bedstead in an East Hide
tenement was the keystone of the fall of the
Anarchist structure. The structure con
sisted of bornljast, dirt, thievery, murder,
beer, squalor arid fanaticism. Looking it
over carefully, tbe old East Hide bedstead
looms up a- about the only substantial and
finite element of tbe entire “movement.”
Herr Must s belligerent taik and spre-adeagle
oratory unquestionably created a deep
impression, but when he was found under
the bed, the humor of the situation was too
strong for even anarchism to bear.
Mr. Eugene Kelly Is a man worth a great
many million dollars and the head of an im
portant down town bank. He is self made
and as patriotic as Irishmen of keen intelli
gence and strong business sagacity often
are There have been numerous scandals
aud no end of quarrels in the land league on
this side of the w ater. as there have in vari
ous other American branch's of Irish
schemes. In every crisis Eugene Kelly has
tnen appealed to, and his sturdy g‘ssl sense
and business rapacity have enabled the
jatnots to pull through. The influence of
one eminent man of sincerity and broad
comprehension of events is of inestimable
value in a struggle like that of Ireland. Mr.
Kelly lias gradually gathered substantial
men around him. and is to-day the strongest
arm of the whole system of Irish agitation
in this country.
Trie arrival of Sir Thomas Henry Grat
ton Esmonde, Bart., and his fellow traveler,
Arthur O'Connor, lias suddenly directed at
tention to the new tactics of the Irish |>artv.
These twi > men stand at the very head of
the Parnell-Gladstone combination, and it
may be taken for granted that th.-v could
not Is- spared from Parliament at this time
if it were not recognized on the other side
that the American interests are paramount
to all otfcers. Sir Thomas, or "Mr.'' R*-
fnonde, as he prefers to be called, is a man
of 20 vears. slenderly built, with a fair
complexion and modest manner He dresses
quietly and talks with a set jaw and
tbougntful eyes. O’Connor is a b-footer,
with an imtssung presence, a black beard
and a deep bass voice. His manner is hearty
amf direct. Both of these noted arrivals
were leaning against the railing of the
Hoffman House this morning, chatting
quietly ami apparently unrecognized by the
mob Even those most devoted of Irish
patriots, the hack drivers, did not know
them. Most people glam-ed at the men a
second time, however, for there was no
question of their distinction of liearing. Mr.
O’Connor wa-> as mellow as a sailor on his
"I look forward,” he said, during a short
talk, “with f'-eling of the utmost pleasure
to our trip through the country, aside from
the fact that we will be of assistance to the
party on our pilgrimage, but will have an
opportunity of seeing every section of the
country from ocean to ocean. We begin in
ti e extreme east and speak constant !y in the
different cities until we arrive at San Fran-
“You will find some queer represen
tatives of Ireland's cause in the smaller
•‘Oh, we are quite prepared for that, and
we have a full comprehension of how the
lesser politicians have been gaining their
own ends by trailing on Ireland’s griev
anco*.. We hope to place the w hole question
in anew light i—tore the American people,
and that is the sole reason of our presence
The importation of these two brilliant
orators anil distinguished leaders of the
Irish party will do more to lift the prospects
of Ireland’s success through America than
any other recent move of the part}-.

A DOZEN WEALTHY EDITORS.
Tbe Way They Came Into Possession
of Their Money.
Nkw York. Oct. B.—All the chief
editors of the leading daily papers
of New York are men of vast wealth,
and yet nearly every one of them is a hard
worker in his business. The richest of them
all is doubtless Mr. Bennett, of the Herald,
who is still spoken of as “young Bennett,”
though he is hastening toward the fiftieth
year of his life, most of which is spent, in
Europe. The one who lias the largest in
come at this time is doubtless Mr. Pulitzer,
of the Word, whose fortune is the result of
four or five years of enterprise. The wealth
of Mr. Dana, of the Sun, will be increased
this year by the revenues of his new evening
issue, Mr. Reid, of the Tribune, has grown
to be a rich man during the past ten
years from the income of his paper and of
the immense building in which it is pub
lished. Mr. Jones, of the Times, who has a
lieutenant in the chair of editor, is a mil
lionaire. Mr. Ottendorfer, of the Staats
Zeitung, ranks among the richest editors of
tbe city. Mr. Albert Pulitzer, of the Jour
nal, has been raised to fortune by his paper
within a very few years. Mr. Godkin, of
the Post, is a rich man, and so is Mr. God
win, of the Commercial Advertiser ; and so
is Mr. Htone, of the Journal of Commerce ;
and so is Mr. Field, of the Mail, who dele
gates the duty of editor. It is probable that
Mr. Dorsheimer, of the Star, is the least
wealthy among the editors of important
dailies in New York, but if his patxir should
find the pathway of success only a brief
lieriod of time will be needed to fill his
One of these editors got his wealth by in
heritance; four of them got theirs by mar
riage, and the others “made it for them
selves.” The most elderly of them are God
win, Jones, Htone, Ottendorfer and Field;
the youngest of them are the brothers
Pulitzer, and among the gray beards are
Dana, Reid, Bennett, Dorsheimer and God
kin. Four of the editors here spoken of are
foreign born, and tile other eight are native
Americans. Mr. Dorsheimer is the largest
of them in size, and Mr. Jones is the small
est. AU of them are men of strong and
striking faces, and several of them are
positively handsome. It would doubt
less raise jealousy in their ranks to
divide which is the best looking in the
eye of an artist, but any one who knows
them all will at once pick out him who
bears the closest resemblance to tiie Olym
pian Jupiter. The only daily pa[x*r in town
that ha* passed from its founder to his son
is the Herald, and of the dozen here named,
ten have been wrenched out of tiie hands
that hold them at the close of tha war. All
the chief daily editors now on the stage here
have heirs to whom they expect to bequeath
their papers, regardless of such vicissitude*
as have overtaken their nr* b •rossors of
recent times. John Swl.ton.
