SAWDUST mevs profits ! HQW'THE game is worked and * WHAT IT YIEtDS. jjow a Detective Saved a Man from Arizona— Sketch of the “Green Goods" Game from Act 1.4 Observa tion of a, Particular < ise in New York City. ; \ K w York, Dec. SI. —“lf 1 last my pres ent position,” said a New York police de tective to me a few days ago “1 would go into the sawdust business. I'here s more money in it and less risk than ;>t any similar occupation.” The first part was spoken in jest,but there was a deal of truth in the rust of it. The four best known “green goods’ men in this , ity have made a barrel of titpney in the past two years. They are Barney McGuire, jo. Little, Charley Johnson and Charles Parmerly. Each is a leader of a “gang,” for the business requires a large forrai of employes. The minor vogues make only their wages With pickings and stealings, just as in politics and elsewhere, but the leader grow rich on large and frequent prof its, 1 have the best authority for saying that McGuire’s gains during the last two 'years have Hot been less tlran ?!30,000. The ethers have not earned so mu li; say $35,- Oho. for Parmerly, $40,000, for.lohnson, and f50,000, for Little. Altogether it is a profit able business and bids fair to be both per manent and safe. The laws do not cover the offense, so that a sawdust man wh o tights hard can almost, always secure an ac quittal. Many of those coavicted have foolishly pleaded guilty when there was not the least need of it. The methods of these men have been exposed times without nuni ier. but the victims continue to pour in. Newspaper articles on the subject, though they state the fact in the clearest terms, are orfly advertisements for the bu iness and are so regarded by sawdust men. When an ex pose comas to the hands of a man who is thinking of purchasing “green goods” lje simply sneers at the idea that he Car be caught in such a net, and at once matures a plan to get the best of the swindlers. It costs hint from $250 to $1,300 to find out that his plan is not reliable, i had an op portunity, within a few days, to see a part of the operation performed ujon a coun tryman, and was much edified by the spec tacle. I was standing in the Pennsylvania ferry house, foot of CourElahd street, early in the afternoon, just as the p&ssmgers of a through ti ain landed in this city. Among them was a man whose appearauce was so peculiar that my attention was attracted to him at once. Pie was over 0 feet in height, sienderiy built, and clothed in rather un couth garments, the most conspicuous of which was a very long frock coat of a mili tary pattern and of the color known in ihe Bouth as “butternut.” He wore a round topped hat with a very broad brim. His hair was long and hung down upon his shoulders. He had a sandy moustache, and lie carried a valise. I observed him closely for he was a dolightfully “fresh” sub ject. — s>a>* V 13®- a 1 if Ik mWf rt iw : WATCHING THE COUNTRYMAN. • Suddenly I became aware that I was not the only person who was taking an unusual interest in the stranger’s affairs. Two men, standing together in such a position as to be somewhat withdrawn from general obser vation, were watching the new arrival sharply though warily. I hail an indistinct impression that One of them had once been pointed out to me as a man who would steal if circumstances permitted. As I after ward learned they w ere Jim Johnson and “Bat” Sweeney, who are known to the pro fession as “steerers.” The intelligent leader may be coming to New York any day to buy greeu goods, and very likely will meet one of these men, so it will do no harm to tell how they look. Johnson is n dark man, 3 feet sinches in height, of medium build, nnd is 45 years old. He has curly hair and a dark moustache. He will be found wear ing a dark suit and a black derby hat. His countenance is not an evil one though liis eye is somewhat furtive. Mr. Sweeney will greet the visitor clothed in a suit v ery simi lar to that of Mr. Johnson, for such gar ments are not likely to attract attention. He is 28 years old, 3 feet 0 inche- tall, of slender build and light complexion. He is at present wearing a sandy mou.-tuche. These two men watched the stranger from the country, and I watched them, re membering the text about the man Who Jvamedown from Jerusalem to Jericho ami tell among thieves.” When the visitor left Ihe ferry-house he was followed at a re spectful distance by Messrs. Johnson and Sweeney. This settled the question in my mind, and I joined the procession. After some delay we reached a hotel on Broadway. Sweeney and Johnson then withdrew and 1 remained to await developments. The stranger registered at once and went to his room. Shortly thereafter he received a call from a gentleman named Brady. Mr. Brady is 5 feet tl inches tall, with light com plexion and sandy moustache. Be has a tine physique, and weighsabout 180 pounds. Green goods buyers will take care not to af front Mr. Brady, for lie is a slugger. Alter h brief interview, the unfortunate and Brady came down stairs and passed out Upon the street, the fatter following some twenty paces behind the former. In this J'ay they walked up Broadway a few clocks, then crossed to the Bowery and pro ceeded down that thoroughfare. 1 was a short distance behind them and was won i tiering what I should do to save the coun tryman from his impending fate when I 1 nearly ran against Mr. L. A. Newcombe, r formerly post office inspector, and now sen -1 jor partner of Newcombe & Travers’ detec tive agency. He had came up a side street in time to see Brady and the innocent go by, ind was looking down the street after them with an amused smile. . Here’* a grand steal going on,” said ho. '• nine along aud we’l! see if this gentlo '"an (pointing to Brady) connects \rith the countryman.” W p accordingly followed the men. They turned into Broome street,and shortly after wards Rrady joined the stranger and they proceeded a short distance in company when th ?y again seput ated. Allthis rigmarole," said Newcombe, “is to confuse and terrify the victim, there's no need in the world of trailing this than through the street and leaving him hivering on corners. It j* done to get him ha state of mind suitable to the game jthout to be played on him. After man 'as dodged imaginary detectives an gone th ough the mystery business for nil t air or ''"he ain’t in a condition to know w ether neing cheated or not. This mans evi ueut“ from the far- West or South. . Idou’t sympathize with him at all,but I’ll save him it 1< -a.” Accordingly we dodged Brady, who was retra ng Ms steps, and came up with the count yman. M friend,” said Newcombe, “do you kmny hat you’re going to be swindled out ot ah ,'our money “Nc sir; I don’t,” said the country man. 1 y° are. The man who just leity 01 is to return with another who is to sell ran some counterfeit money. Am I right T J “bUfposiii’yoube,” was the reply, “it ain’t noiieo your business, and don’t you forget it. I tat’s my advice to you, young man, and ym fan gamble on it. I ain’t no teu derfo. . and Pm all right.” u Y<i think you are,” said Newcombe, “but 1 you buy counterfeit money of those men yu will find that you have been swin dled.” U D b r' fl ‘T&ft'A r. p^r 4 TURNED ROUND THE CORNER. “Nobody don’t pull any wool over my eyes,” said the countryman, and be was pro ceeding to give Newcombe a history of his many marvelous exploits, when Brady and another man hove in sight coming up the street. When they saw Newcombe they turned about, walked rapidly to the Bowery and finally broke into a run. . The man from beyond civilization was surprised. “Bay, stranger, what does yer mean,” said he. “Those fellers lit out like mad the instant they laid eyes on yer. I don’t like it and if I thought you’d prevented my dealing with them I’d drop you in yer tracks.' 1 At the same time he reached for his pistol. “Don’t take that gun out here or you will get into trouble,’’said Newcombe. “You’re liable to arrest for having it with you. I’m a detective and have done what I could to keep you out of bad company. Take my advice and get out of to wn.” To my great surprise the countryman de cided upon reflection that this advice was sound. “This yer New York ain’t Arizona,” said he, “and as long as you’re what you say you arel guess I’d better tie to you.” He seemed to be a decent sort of fellow, and Newcombe invited him down to his office in the Benedict building. There the man from Arizona told hisstory. His name was J. L. Mormardy. He had been lured to New York in the usual way. “There’s lots of boys out my way who I have been roped in by these fellows,” said • he. “You see out there we don’t make much •money, and when we do make any it conies in a heap. Just about the time a man rakes in a little pile he hears from New York. Somebody wants to sell him a lot of gram goods, and though he can point to half a dozen men who have got left on that racket lie is just fool enough to think he can get the best of it. That was the way with me. I’ve got 41,000 in my pocket, and I expert 1 came pretty near losing it. At the same time I vvaiited to make a winning pretty bad. They Sent a sample of their money out to me. That’s what catches the boys. You can’t tell it from the genuine article.” “Likely enough,” said Newcombe, “for it’s as good a bill as ever was made.” t V ; ■ ip THE RESTAURANT TRICK. He then proceeded to give Mr. Mormardy a few points on the workings of the saw dust game. Everybody knows how the first part of the game is played. The “writer,” as he is called, sondj out his letters to ad dresses in commercial directories or to men lie hears of from local crooks. The country man comes to tlie city with all he can raise, goes to a hotel, and is met by some such man as Brady to whom he is induced to sur render the correspondence. The affair is then in charge of the "boodler,” a man who holds the money. When the deal is com plete the writer usually gets -0 per cent. In this case Brady was the “steerer.” He takes his man as far as the "turning point,” so cuiled, where he is left till he is sufficiently nervous to be run into the joint and fleeced. Once inside, he is shown the money (note fresh from the Treasury Department) and by this time he is so excited that bis only thought is to get hold of them and get out of town. He is invariably induced to express the valise to his home for fear the detectives will arrest- him for having counterfeit money. It is needless to say that the valise which goes by express is not the one that contains the money. There are various ways of turning tho trick. Sometimes tho change is made in the dive where the money is shown. A sliding panel is arranged in the wall, and while the countrymen’s atten tion is attracted another way the substitu tion is made. The latest thing is the res tauraut trick. The victim gets his money m a bundle which he carries in hiss hand. Then accompanied by two or three of the thieves ho good into a restaurant amt sits down at a table. Suddenly one of the crooks whispers: "Ibook out for the fly cop!” at the same time pointing to one ol the gang who is rigged up as a detective. “Put that money under tho table, out of sight!” continues the crook: and the innocent do "* it every time. Sometimes he keeps his hand on it. ' Then he is asked to take a drink, and while ho lifts t.io gloss to his lips t lie t, milder is made. His hand goes under tho table again, but the bundle it grasps is not the same one that it held a mo ment. before. ~ , , Newconibe explained a half do*en such tricks to the man from Arizona, and then showed him Bim4>’’* picture, and various clippings in scrap books which told or suc cessful operations upon just such men us Mr Mormardy. That gentleman expressed Ids gratitude in fitting terms aud showed that it was genuine by leaving bftvn the same day. Charles W.Jlooke. Sudden Clift ex'* "I Wentlier cause Throat Diseases.

THE COLONEL WILL PREISERVE A VALUABLE MEMENTO. A Check Which Judge Maurice J. Tower Carried in His Pocket -Dan iel Manning’s Power in Politics—A Judge of Human Nature. New York, Dec. 31.--The event of the week has been the death of Daniel Man ning. In no place in the United States has his power as a politician been felt more than in this city. For years Manning was the head and front of the opposition to John Kelly. It. was his firm and unyielding dis position that drove Kelly out of the Dem ocratic State Convention in Syracuse eight years ago, and gave the County Democracy recognition as the sole Democratic organiza tion in this city. It was Manning’s tact that brought Tammany back within the fold as a tender to the County Democracy locomotive. It was Manning who held Tammany true to Cleveland in the election of 18S4, when the slightest defection would have defeated the Democratic candidate for President. A tjer Mr. Manning was made Secretary of the Treasury he appeared to be the only man in the Cabinet who was willing to give Tammany a fair share of the patronage. His course cemented the good feeling be tween the factions and made it possible for the Democracy to win its great victories in the State and in the city. When stieken by paralysis, Mr. Manning did not lose his interest in the consolidation of the city De mocracy. All through his illness he closely watched the political struggles in the State and city. How deep this interest was has just been accidentally shown. Judge Maurice J. Power found in his over coat atter Mr. Manning’s death a letter di rected to Col. John R. Fellows. This letter had been handed to tbo J udge during the exciting political campaign in November last when Col. Fellows was a candidate for District Attorney. The Judge was request ed to deliver the letter to Col. Fellows per sonally. He placed it in his overcoat pocket and forgot all about it. Upon dis covering the letter he gave it to the Col onel, who promptly opened it. It was from Daniel Manning, and it was filled with cheering words and a check for S3O, which he begged the Colonel to accept and use in paving his election expenses. The Colonel’s eyes filled with tears as be read the letter from his old time chief. “That money,” he said, “can never be drawn. I shall frame the check and place it in my room where I can see it every day and remember the great and generous friend whose heart went with his signa- ture.” It is about seventeen years since Mr. Manning was the legislative reporter of the Albany Argus. He also did some Associated Press reports. While he was thus employed, the Arcade Railway bill came before the Legislature. It was strongly pressed. A. T. Stewart was bitterly opposed to it. and sent a lawyer of the name of Fuller to Al hany to defeat it. Fuller stirred up a breeze, and did his liest to please his em ployer. One morning he saw something in the New York Tribune which touched him to the quick. It bore an Albany date. Nathan Comstock was then the Tribun* cor respondent. Fuller met him in the lobby of the House and threatened to whip him for sending the dispatch. Nathan replied that Fuller was mistaken. He hail never sent such a dispatch, and it must have coma from the Associated Press. “Dan Manning is the Associated Press correspondent, Nathan said. “Don’t you know him, Mr. Fuller P “No, 1 don’t,” answered the irate lawyer; “but I’d like to know him, and give him a piece of my mind.” “Oh, he’s a good fellow,” Comstock re sponded. “I’ll take you down to the Argus office and introduce you.” They went down to the Argus office. They found Dan at work with scissors in a room with William Cassidy. Nathan in troduced Fuller. “Did you send thnt dispatch to the Tri bune yesterday'” asked the lawyer, pointing Jto a copy of the Tribune. “Yes, replied Dan, whose sluggish tem perament was at that time a matter of re mark among all who knew him. “Then,” exclaimed Fuller, his eyes blaz ing with anger, “you’re an infernal liar and an ill-begotten scoundrel! Good day, sir. ” The lawyer took off his hat with mock po liteness and left the office. Dan remained in his seat, scissors in hand, as though lie had been struck in the back of the neck with a sand-club. A moment afterward Mr. Cassidy, who hid overheard the con versation, turned to Manning and said: “Dan, are you going to stand that !” Dan gazed at Cassidy for full a minute anil then replied. “I don’t think it my duty to stand it. Mr. Cassidy, and I believe I won’t stand it.” Mr. Manning then asked Comstock where he could find Fuller. "You can find him at the capital if you want to see him, Dan,” Comstock replied. "He asked lue to bring him down here for an introduction. 1 supposed him to boa gentleman, and thought that he would talk am cably with you over the matter.” Mr. Manning slapped on his hat aud they started tor the capitol. Fuller was not there, but they afterward found him in the rotunda of the court Louse. Manning went for him as Kufiivan goes lor his opponents. In a flash Fuller drew a revolver from his hip pocket aud presented it at Dan’s breast. Comstock withdrew in a hurry. He said that he had no faith in Fuller’s skill as a marksman, and that he didn’t want to take any chances. What followed was never known. Manning made no reply when questioned concerning it, and Fuller has al ways kept his mouth closed. Certain it is that something did happen, for both men left tho building arm in arm, and from that day to the day of his death Manning pro fessed the warmest friendship lor Fuller, and Fuller professed the warmest friend ship for Manning. Manning was ilia life and the soul of the County Democracy. He hound up its wounds and applied arnica to its braises. Hubert O. Thompson was only his lieuten ant, and no man was more grieved than Manning himself because Huuert failed to reap the reward to which the County De mocracy thought him entitled. Daniel Manning was a true friend. He made few promises and never broke one. Ho was a silent man. Rarely did he make a speech, and lie never probably spoke for more than five minutes. What he said was the essence of condensation. Asa reporter he was plain and practical, and never bril liant. Housed few adjectives, and pruned Ins sentences intuitively. While editor of t o Ai'yu.i he penned few editorial articles. The work was done by men whom ho knew and trusted. He was it rare judge of hu man nature, and in all his (Kilitical life it is safe to say that he never made a mistake in choosing his men. Nearly every politician of repute in the city at tended his tin.oral, and all wore sincere mourners. He lias dis appeared from lho stage of Ufe, and it will be long before the Democracy of New York finds a leader of equal power and judgment. Manning ranks as a political leader with Xa-ter Cagger, Dean Richmond, aud his old friend Cassidy, but lie attached the hearts of men to him by his sincerity aud not bv appealing to their selfishness.
