JVEW YORK, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1889. PRICE ONE CENT. 19 ' KtLBY'S PERMIT GONE, The Comptroller Says the Briber Is as Bad as the Bribed. Will It Be the Means of Muzzling tbe Other Stand-Holders? Barrels, Not Boodle. Flowing In Upon .Mr. It. D. Brown. Comptroller Myers has revoked the permit of 0. P. Kilby. a stand-holder iu tho Kew Vest Washington Market. This Btateincnt, simple ns it may appear, means that tho investigation into tho allotment of stands, in progress before tho Com-jnissioners of Accouu's, 1m practically ended. After ninny days spent in tho tedious ex-animation of witnesses by Mr. Nicoll and tho Commissioners, the charges that bribery had been resorted to to obtain stands, was sub. tuiutiated in at least one instance Charles 1'. Kil by yesterday sworothat ho had paid Lewis Schoonuiakor, Assistant Olork of Markets in tho Comptroller's office. $600 to socuro his stand permit, and his testimony was corroborated by his employee, Henry IL Uriinin. The Comptroller, when informed of this fact promptly suspended Schoonmaker, and at the same time revokod Kllby's permit. An Evening Would reporter interviewed Comptroller Myers on the subjoct this nioiuing. "Yes." said ho. "I have rovokod Mr. Kilby's permit. I consider him ju.t as guilty as tho man who nccoutod the bnbo, if not more so. "Mr. Schoonmaker, I am told, has been in this department sixtoon years, and has always borne tho Inchest reputation, and now comes a Satan with a bribe that tempts him to his lioll. " Certainly the tempter is not less guilty than tho man who succumbs to the tonipta-tiou: nor should he go unpunished. I revoked his iormit at once. ' " Hut, did you consider," asked tho reporter, " that you may hove obstructed tho rni estimation before the Commissioners of Accounts? Have you not, by revoking Kilby's permit, closed forever the noutlis of other stand-holders who may have paid mouov to tocure their permits and wlw may novo desired to testify, but who will mm' keep their own counsel for tear of being kicks t out of tho market and having their business ruined ?" 'lint was a poser to tho Comptroller, who amweted: " I had not looked at it In that light I viewed it from a moral standpoint only. 1 could not sea how a man who confessed to an act of bribery should le entitled to any consideration a nl had no thought of the effoct of my notion on other witnosses. Besides, I acted on the a ivico of tho Corporation Counsel." As'vtaut Corporation Counsel Wickos, who lab been .presenting the city during the In-te-tigu'ior ' entered the office at this point tail corroto. ..ted the statement of Comptroller lij'ers, and added " 1 do uot think that the action of the Comptroller will havo tho effect suggested. I m lulormcd that the investigation will not just longer than next Monday, auyway, and iiisimprouablo that the objeotors have any cthor witnesses who can testify to epecino lets of bribery. " While tho Comptroller expressed a desire to facilitate the investigation iu progress, he said that he did not feel that be ought to offer immunity to bribe-givers by promising not to revoke their permits if they testify. lie said farther : " I started in to organize this new market on a certain basis, and I propose to carrv it out. Everv cues of violation of my rules brought out by this investigation will receive my imniodiato attention. ' 1 have already revoked tho permits of ex. Assemblymen Finn and John Tubbs, and Mill revoke those of Mr. Howe and every other Bub-letter who has sub-lot without the permission of this Dopartrnout. 'the man Boyle, who resides in Hoboken and who obtained his pormit by representing himself as a citizen of Now York, has been summoned to show cause why his stand should not be taken from him. "I stand ready at any time to give the Commissioners of Acoounts a full and detailed statement of all my oflloial acts rela-, tlve to this market " When informed of the action of the Comptroller in revoking Mr. Kilby's permit, tbe Commissioners of Accounts woro unanimous iu declaring that thoro Is no necessity for further mveftigation by them. Commissioner Holahan said that It will ; now bo impossible to secure testimony of farther acts of bribery with a threat of loss oi business held over tho head of every lUuid.hulder. "Will von bring tho Kilby and Grimm evi-denco to tho attention of tho Distriot'Atlorl i? L, Commissioner Holahan was asked. There's the rub," he replied. "-If we it Mi6. cloSo Mr- Sohoonmakor's mouth ana be will not. be available as a witness lo-iore u Ho will bo an accused person and can avail himself of a refusal to answer." i i ,?u. w'" remember that Bchoonmakcr i K,,,b? ,hat u did not get a cent of tho VVC, d Vlmi that It went to others.

Hho Took Potnon In n City Park, Driven to Despair ni tbe Tlionglit of Her Hungry Children Five Little One Waiting for Ilrrail In Ihr nilserablo Koomi of n Illvlngton Mtroet Tenement. Mrs. Annie Webor, of 310 ltivington strcot, died this morning from tho effects of a doso of arsonio which she took with tho vlow of ending a life of poverty and sufforing. For days sho had Bought for work In order to earn bread for her little ones, and at night sho was compelled to toll them that hor applications had boen rofused. Finally, yesterday morning, about 9 o'clock, sho found herself seated on a bench in Madison Sijunro I'ark. Sho saw about hor all the ovidonccs of wealth and comfort, gazed bitterly upon them as sho thought of her little onos waiting at tho hovol in Eivingtou street hungering for bread. Truly, life had no charms for hor. Bho was full of despair, and with tho last few cents she purchased the deadly drujf that ultimately caused her death. A policeman came sauntering by. The woman bad begun to writho with pain and ry out in her safforing. A curious, gaping crowd gathcrod around and looked at nor. Tho policeman summoned an ambulance. It come and the unfortunate woman was taken away to the Kew York Hospital. No one of tho crowd had inquired who sho was; no one seemod to care. The incident was soon forgotten by most of those who bad witnessed it- At the hospital the woman gavo her nomo and address, and when questioned as to the reason for hor act she only replied : " I was too poor to live ony longer." Tho doctors labored hard, but their efforts were fruitless, for sho died at 6 o'clock this morning. A viBit to her late home by on Evknino World reporter brought htm to two little rooms, almost destitute of furniture Five small children gazed with wldo open oyes at tho callor. When the reporter asked whero their mothor was tho eldest said simply i " She's doad." ""Whero'spapa?" ' ' Ho's gone for tho undertaker." ' Why did mamma die ? " ' Papa won't tell us." " You are vorv poor, ore you not?" "Yes. sir." Mr. Weber cannot speak Encllsh, and it is probable that tho neighbors will have to bury the unfortunato woman.

After boing looked up for twenty-four hours tho jury in the caso of Jockey Btone, indicted for murder in tho first degree for killing a Coney Island bartender named Henry Miller, camo into tho Brooklyn Court of Sessions this morning.

Forty.NIno Prisoners Arraigned nntl Discharged in tho Ilarlom Court Police Justlco Murray was surprised to find about fifty woll-dressod mon arrayed beforo him when he ascended tho judicial bench in tho Ilarlom Polico Court this morning. " What have these men done ?" ho asked. " My mon raidod the Crib Club, at 17 West One Hundred and Twonty.olghth stroot, where a prlzo-flght was in progress last night, and these gontlomon wcro found thcro and taken into custody, as wU as tho pugilists, " explained Capt. Westorvelt, of tho East One Hundred and Twentv-stroot station. The Crib Club uumbors among Its mom-bers nearly all tho blooded scions of wealth and fashion in Harlem. Ten days ago tickets at 95 apioce began to circulato qulotly about town, entitling the holder to witness a prizo-fight for a purso at tbe olub.rooms last night between " Tommy" Russell, tho Yorkvillo rusher, and Tommy Kelly, known in sporting cireleB as the Harlem Bpider. The rlDg was pitched on the top floor of the club-room, and at 0.30 o'clock last night Frank llanhom, a diroator of the Club, jumped into tho ring, declared himself referoo, and warned tho spectators not to interfere with tho sport Thoro woro about oighty men prosent, among the most prominent being J. L. Mott, ir. , son of Jordan L. Mott, owner of the Mott ron Works.ovor Harlem Bridge; OusQroth, the billiard-ball manufacturer; Aloxauder Clark, Will Ileiman, Bookmnkor llidgo Le-viuo, Ed Kearney, jr., sou of tho auctioneer; Billy Hose, of tho Astor Houso; Charley Armstrong and Johnny Heraty, Timo was called at 9.SS, and tho littla fellows went to work with a will. Thoy were stripped to tho waist, wore tights, and sparred with four-ouueo boxing gloves. They hammered each other very well, and soon the ropes, floor, their bodies and faces were stained with bltod. It was difficult to restrain the enthusiasm of the witnessos, and their shouts and shrieks of oncouiagement could be plainly heard in the street. Tho o'ghth round hod opened auspiciously, and Kelly had the best of tho mill, whon a ring camo at tho front-door bell. Banham rushed to tho head of the stairs shouting : " Let no one in.' but he was too late. An alert servant had opened the door to find Ward Detoctlves Mott and Frioe with a platoon of polico behind them on tho steps. They pushed thoir way iu and rushod upstairs. Banham rushed back into tho room where tho mill was iu progress yelling) "l'oliool police I Skip, jump, get out!" but there was no way of getting out The police entered with pistols drawn, it is alleged, and otdercd every one to surrender. Banham, Mott, Heraty, Armstrong and about a dozen others who seemod to lmo a pull walked out unmolested, but forty-nine others, inoludlng five reporters, were marched two by two to tho station-houso, with a big crowd behind them. Tho raid was mado about 10. SO. At the Sollce statiou thoy wore looked up, four and vo in a coll, ana kopt thero while waiting responses to urgent messages sent for bail, Frank Hardy. Tom Mullins, of tho Mount Morris Hotel, aud Oakey Kerker, the Harlem saloon-keeper, camo and bailed overy one but tho principals out, in the sum of (500 each. Justice Weldo went to tho station-houso and took tho bail. The last man was not bailed until 3 o'olook this morning. The men arrestod were very indignant becauso Banham and the others wore not arrested. llu&sell and Kelly had a lawyer this morning, who had any number of witnesses to swear that it was not a prize-fight, simply a sparring exhibition that took place in tho olub-rooms last night Tbe polico had no direot evideuoo to disprove this, so Kelly, Russell and tho other prisoners woro discharged.

IT FINDS STANLEY TUB ALMOST CERTAIN WINNER AT THE (lARI)EN'. Tho interest iu tho Madison tiquare Garden blcyclo ruca has grown daily and tho gatherings of hpoctators havo increased in number pioportionately. Tho rnco will wind up this evening and riding will begin at '2 o'clock iu tho nftornoon, instead of 3, so thnt tho raco can be cou eluded at midnight mid without any infringement of the Sunday laws. Lottie Stanloy, tho Pittsburg midget, still maintains her pluco at tho head of tho pro-cession, all the efforts of Elsa Von Bluinen to o orlako hor proving futile. Sho is clear grit and pluck, and her speed is remarkable She hosbcon fatorod by Dame Fortune nnd has lmd no sortoiiB ncoidont or ailment during tho work. She scored her 500th mile ut 11. St o'clock last night and announced that Bho was going to boat tho (laidon's rooord that mado by Qeorge Litttuwood in December last in a go-as-you-please. It was 623K miles In 142 hours.

The result of the spurting was to leavo Stanley 27 milos in odvonco of Elsa Von Blumcn. All but Armalndo and Brown will probably cover tho 400 miles requisite to entitlo them to a share In the division of the gate money. Sickness has deprived those two of their chanco. Tho score at 1 o'clock this morning was as follows: Stanley, 618.3; Von Blumon, 401.4; Swallow, 441.0; Oakes, 440.1; Lewis, 425.7; Baldwin. 419; Hart, 859.0; Woods, 318.3 ; McShano, 313.2; Armaindo, 221.7; Brown, 193.6.

Their rooms are always paid for in advance, and thoy are the neatest and tidiest in tho building. " I went into tho room when thoy were staying with the Gensburgs alter I had talked with tbe Socioty's egeut.and I saw tho mau lying ou tho sofa, who was reported as being drunk, and I know that tho accusation is a lio. ' ' Mr. Weiss does not drink to my knowledge, nor do any of tho peoplo with whom he was-living. Thoy could not stay horo if they did. " I don't understand wh v tho Socioty is try. lug so hard to make them out disreputable and give them a bad character, unless it is to manufacture an exouse for the oulrago it has committed. " You will do mo a fuvor to mako this pub-lio, for I havo been asked by dozous of poo. plo about the matter, and I want to nail tho statements of Supt. JIukens and his offlcor, whoever he may bo, as lies." Mr. Dsnzigor further stated that overy day ho had callers to see the Weiss family and in-quiro about their affairs. Among them wore many ladles and gentlemen who camo in their carriages. As Mrs. Woiss cannot speak English, theso visitors have to depond upon himself and his wife to interpret for hor. As the mother is much broken in health, the interviews bring on nervous fits of cry. lug, for the good peoplo can do nothing for her, although many offers of monoy and as. Distance havo been made. One gentleman who called two days ago offered to send his lawyer to fight the case, and evory ono who has visited the rooms has expressed amazement at the high-handed proceeding of Mr. Gerry's Socioty aud express srinpatuy for the mother and father iu their distress. Mr. Weiss told tho reporter this morning that ho had yet heard nothing from tbe Society, and was still relying upon tho promiso made to him tiy Mr. Tuska aud Mr. Allen, of the Unltod Hebrew Charities Society, that thoy would let him see his child again. " I am a strong man, and able to work for my faiuilv and support thorn comfortably. I havo aiwavs beon able to do so. But I have had trouble over since 1 came to this country, and being unable to speak the languago and not knowing tbe customs here I may not baye mado thu people up at tbo Society understand my caso psrfeotly. Thoy urely cannot say that I nover made inquinos for my child till six mouths after It had beon committed, for I have any numler of wituossos to show that I went to the So. cioty's office as soon ok I got back to the city from Long Island, and fouud that Tina was gone. " Thoy told mo at first that there was no such child thero, and then afterwards they said she had been sent away. " They mado so many promises that were broken that I did not know what to believe. I did everything they told mo. and then they put uiu out and told mo not to show myself thero again. "Now 1 havo to sit still aud see other people doing for mo what I ought to do myself. That makes me feel almost as bad as to lose Tina. " Thoy say all sorts of bad things against me and my wife, aud I cannot contradict them. Sometimes I almost wish I was dead I havo so much (rouble. "I have a father sixty years old and a mother fifty-five living in tho old country. They aro fairly well to do and so are my wifo''s parents. I caunot write to them and tell them about Tina, and I do not feel like writing to them at all. "Yet I ana getting loiters from them all the time askingimo why I do not write and tell them bow '1 am getting along, aud iu. quiriugif auythiug is wrong. '1 he last letter I wrote was six weeks ago. They know nothing of my troubles." While tho conversation with the reportor was going on In German Mrs. Weiss was lis. telling intently and acquiuscod in all her hustund Bald. Sho is hoping that tho piomiscs of the gen. tleuieu who called to see her will be made good, and beliovoa that she will boo her daughter again uuxt week, Lutle six-year-old Hatah. who was having her Saturday holiday, was playing contentedly in the cornel of the room with her blocks.
