"A PUT VT JOB." Plow Facts In the Case Etotr Mr. Dady was Plarlno; John Devlin, and was "Played" In Tarn by Mr. McCaffrey A Case for Controller Green. In yesterday's Eaole was published an in terview with John Devlin, m whioh he charged that nr. J. Daily ana Thomas McOaffrov had "out ud a Job" on John W. Coe, senatorial candidate in the Second District, to furnish him with false affidavits for $100, these affidavits to be used for election purposes. a reporter or tne eaolb saw Mr, Body last nlttht and asked him If ha was engaged in "the Job" against John w. coe, as sevitn had obarged. Mr. Dady emphatically emphatically denlod the charge and said: "I don't know. Coe personally. I've only heard of him by reputation, and I believe him to be 1 A GOOD MAN. I never promised to furnish affidavits for monoy. This man McCaffery, has told me he would swear to a lie. Devlin was lying. It is true that I was with Devlin on election day, bnt I was only playing him. I took him around and got htm drunk and then got John C. Perry's Perry's tickets away from him. Devlin is a liar, and here's something else about him. He used to hold a position as General Inspector under Commissioner Van Nort, of the Board of Publio Works, in New Vork. While there he used to boast that he put on the pay roll men who drew money for work they never did, and Devlin certified that they were men who performed the work. After they drew money from the City Government Government they were obliged 'to go whacks' with Devlin." The reporter asked Mr. Dady for the names of some of THE PARTIES who had such an easy time of it, and Mr. Dady gave the names of William Kennedy, William McOarty, JaB. Fitapotriok. M. Farrell, Bobert Farrell, and John W. Hunty. Dady continued, "Devlin had to swear to the pay rolls, and had to swear that these men were working under him when they weren't doing any work at au. There were othor men beside these who had to 'whack up' with him in the money which they drew fraudulently fraudulently from the government of New York. Now here's ANOTHER JOB of Devlin's. He used to take tne cobble stones up from some of the Btreets in New York and sell them to a contractor, who in turn sold them to the oity again, and Devlin 'whacked up' the money between them. Devlin thought he was playing me. I'm a nice fellowto play, I am, but McCaffrey was playing me, and that's how I got played. The reason why I worked against Perry, although I am a Bepublican, is because I wanted to put Devlin IN THE OELLAB. I see that he told your reporter that he got me a job on election morning. He's a bloody - liar, he didn't get me a Job. I've been to work in the PoBt Offioe, and I expect expect that 111 be fired out." Mr. Dady then gently tipped his hat over his brow, and gased sternly down the street. "I'm a nice fellow for Devlin to play with, I am, ain't I?" gaid Mr. Dady, with s withering smile. The reporter thought so. Mr. Dady continued, "Do you know this Just knooks the stufflu' out of my chances for that Bepublioan nomination next year. You oanjuat bet your bottom dollar I would a won that, for I had things dead to rights," Mr. Dady tipped hisliat still further upon the back of bis head, and gazed moodily upon a small glass of beer. "So you sayDovlln waB lying, eh Now, did yon ever divide with him any money drawn from the Board of Publio Works?" queried the reporter. Mr. Dady (solemnly, and with much emphasis) "Never, so help me Bob V
