in! CROOKS HUGE SUM arid County Judges, City Officials, Bankers and Contractors Steal Millions Of Dollars In City. By HARRV FEROt SON Stofl Correspondent. YORK, June 6.—New Yorkers i*6 ; le*Wlhg this spring; that the recent toll of bribery, defalcation and cor- tuptlon here may total something more thafi Certain former city officials are in jail because of their eagerness to par- Uclpftte In the looting; charges are penning against others, and a trial ot ffaft leads from the Battery to the Bronx and across to the neighboring borough of Queens. County judges, former borough presidents, prominent bankers have been Involved, and a federal judge has been publicly censured because of his connection with the failure of a bank. At present two investigations are in progress, one Involving a county judge and the other an advocate before the city board of standards and appeals. County Judge W. Bernard Vause is tinder Investigation In connection with a- fee of $260,000 allegedly paid his law ftrm for obtaining valuable pier leases for the United American JJnes. That investigation brought out the fact that the judge was Interested in the Columbia Finance corporation, a concern that -went bankrupt with a loss of »400,000. Vause is *nder indictment on a charge of mail fraud in connection -with the failure of the corporation. William F. Doyle, an advocate, Is Ming investigated by Federal Attorney Charles H. Tuttle because he deposted $660,000 in one bank in the last three and a half years. Doyle has admitted that he "split fees derived from clients for whom he obtained building permits from the board of standards and appeals. He has refused, however, to disclose with whom the fees were •hared. The jailing last month of Maurice Connolly, former Queens borough president, and Frederick Seely, his chief engineer, reminded residents of Queens of the $10,000,000 which had been taken out of their taxes by the •o-called "Queen sewer ring." Connolly and Seely were convicted of conspiracy to defraud the city in awarding sewer contrats. John M. Phillips, dealer in swer pipe, was indicted with them, but died before the trial. In the trial of Connolly and Seely, it was developed that Phillips had a monopoly on bidding for sewer pipe, nnd had arranged to "split" the profits with them, Another large item was the failure of the City Trust company for ?7,000,000. In a state Investigation following the collapse of the institution, Frank H. Warder, former state •uperintendent of banking, wag severely censured. He, later was tried on a charge of malfeasance in failing to publish the true conditions of the bank, and was sent to prison. The report *f Commissioner Moses also criticized General Sessions Judge Francis X. Mancuso, chairman of the board of directors.
