14 THE BROOKLYN: DAILY EAGLE. KETBK, THURSDAY, AUGUST 30, 1900. POSTAL SAFE BREAKER DESCENDS TD BURGLARV. Frank Avery Captured by an Alert Policeman While Visiting Vacant Houses. HIS PAL MADE HIS ESCAPE. ffhe Pair Had a Directory of the Untenanted Dwellings in the Bedford District. A hurirlprv with a rt Irrr - .tnrv nf rhp vnMnt houses in the neighborhood of Jefferson and Nostrand avenues was the novoltv produced . , , , . . ' , for the delectation of Deputy Chief MarMoIIar at local police headquarters on Smith street this morning. The proud captor was Policeman Patrick Battam of the Gates avenue police station, who was out in plain clothes yesterday afternoon looking for thieves in vacant houses. There are a large number of untenanted homes in th2t section of the borough Just at present, for the dwellers in the trim little brown stone edifices and those of frame and stone generally stay out of town until the schools open. Battam's prisoner is Frank Avery, a tall, raw - boned cross between a Yankee and a Norseman, who has the distinguished honor of having his picture displayed in Mr. Pinker - ton's gallery of dangerous thieves, and who Is also In the album at 300 Mulberry street. Avery is known best as a post office thief, and his specialty is bursting open safes in coun - Prank Avery. try post offices. His chum in that business, Will it' 00 Scoacffer. alias Willie the Kid, who i3 no kid 30 far us age is concerned, and who is over six feet tall, is at present doing time in prison in some other state. That is probably the reason why Avery descended to plain vacant houses. When he was captured there were a loaded revolver, a jimmy that shone like a mirror and a steel tap in his pocket. He seemed to realize that there was trouble in store for him, but he took the matter with a nonchalance that was born 01 long experience in tough places. Policeman Battam was anxious to tell Deputy Chief Maekellar the story of the arrest, ..ut it had all been told in a special ivpurt iron: the precinct, which had reached him earlier. The olii er was standing at 2:15 o'clock yesterday afternoon at the corner of Nostrand ave:;ue and Jefferson avenue, idly watching a throng of dainty children at play, when he noticed, senk - distance up the street and in the direction of Marcy avenue, two shabbily dressed men. He kept his eyes on them and saw them eu:er a oaseaieni, which t.hav left soon afterward. Then they - .vent up the front stoop a". I M:. train hurried "after then: to watch them :;:ore - losely. He found that they were at the i;o::t doer of the brown stone residence of Dr. W. E. Hs'.soy. at 203 Jefferson avenue. As he reaei.ed the place the men were leavli .A s one of them walked down the stoop the peiiceman noticed that the stranser was writing in a little red memorandum book. The men turned up Jefferson avenue in the direction of Marcy. with the plain clothes policeman at their heels. They stopped when they reached the corner and Battam walked up to them and asked them what they had been .oing at the house. They told him that they were seeing Dr. Haisey. "Dr. Haisey is out of town." said the policeman. "That story won't go." "We know he is out of town," said the man who is now identified as Avery. "Any how, what: the is it your business? Come, Jack (to the other), we'll go to the drug store and finish our business there." "Your business is my business, just now," said Battam, "for I am a policeman, and I want to know, anyway, what you have under your coat." The officer had noticed the outline of what seemed to be a rod of some kind under the tall man's coat, and as he spoke he caught the coat by one of the lapels and wrenched It open. The steel jimmy dropped with a Sharp ring to the pavement. As it fell Avery's companion started to run, throwing away the memorandum book, by the way. Battam could not follow him and he could not ask the children, who had gathered around with their hooples and velocipedes, curious to find out what the three were wrangling about, to catch him. But he stuck like a leech to the man he had grasped. The prisoner tried to wriggle himself loose and one of the children shouted to the officer: "Look out. mister. That man has a pistol." Avery had been tugging at his hip pocket and managed to get his pistol out finally. The policeman, with the instinct of self preservation, got a desperate grip on the barrel and tried to wrench it awav from the man. The two wrestled all over the sidewalk, but fina'ly Battam secured the weapon and gave the other man a puBh, which sent him to the ground. Then he jumped on his prisoner and held, him prostrate until Avery promised to go along peacefully. The officer allowed him to get to his feet, but Averv made another dash for freedom and agaiii he was knocked down by the policeman, who Is also rawboned and strong. Avery finally saw that he could not carry on the struggle longer with hope of victory and gave up. He went with the officer to , & nearby patrol box and in a few minutes v he was In the hurry - up wagon on his way , to the Gates avenue station. There Battam displayed the revolver, a murderous iook - Vg weapon, with a barrel like a ride and rrying .38 caliber cartridges. It was fully led and there were more cartridges in prisoner's pocket. The jimmy, the steel md the memorandum book, the latter ;.;g been picked up and handed to the 1 by one 01 me cmidren. were also L'. over by Battam to the sergeant at Tne Dooit was quite interesting. le addresses, wtiicn were all of es In the precinct: Haisey street, street, 2fi8: Jefferson 203 - : Han - lancock, 1G0: Macon, 111.

"We have found out about you, my man," said the deputy. "I see that you understand. your situation." "Keerect," said the prisoner briefly. His picture was taken for the local gallery and then he was taken to the Gates Avenue Court for arraignment. He was held pending a further investigation. The charge against him is that he was carrying burglars' tools, but there may be a charge of burglary in addition. The arrest is regarded as most important. IMMIGRATION EMPLOYES ACCUSED Charges Against Several Subordinates Arrive From Washington. Charges against the following employes of the Immigration service at the Port of New York were received from the Treasury Department to - day: Thomas Burke, Ross Stew - J""" xuiuv, ivan ivuiiuB, Daniel Vanderhoff, Thomas Brennan. Gilbert I Baylor. Emil Ouspitz and Frank McDonnell. The charges are of various character, involv - : in2 incomoetencv. brutality and acceotinir bribes. They are mostly indefinite, Assistant Immigration Inspector McSweeney said that the men received the charges personally and will be given three days in which to answer them. After they have answered them they will probably be called before a special committee. The charges are brought by the committee which sat In the Bowling Green Building during the spring and which examined about three hundred witnesses. WERE MARRIED LAST JUNE. Mr. and Mrs. Potter Kept the Affair a Secret Until About a Week Ago. Another romantic marriage of interest to Flatbush folk has occurred. The marriage was quietly celebrated in the early part of June, and its announcement kept from everybody, including the parents of the contracting parties, until last week. Then the marriage notice was published, but neither the bride nor the groom would talk for publication. In the Eagle of August 21 the following marriage notice was published: POTTER SIMONSON On June 6. 1900, by the Rev. Albert H. Studebaker, WILLIAM H. TOTTER to ZEN AIDE ADELE SIMONSON, daughter of Thomas A. and Annie Simonson of Flatbush, is . Y. On the day following the publication of the notice in the Eagle, a reporter called at the home of Mr. Simonson, ITS East Seventeenth street, but was told by Mrs. Potter that quite enough had appeared in the newspapers already. Mrs. Potter, who is 19 years old, was the favorite daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Simonson Her parents knew that there was a recipro cated affection between her and young Mr. Potter, whose father is said to be a minister but they did not take their daughter's talk of marriage seriously. Mr. Potter is said to possess the entire confidence of the bride's family and was always a welcome guest at the house. But, on account of Mr. Potter s youth, her parents did not deem it wise for her to marry at this time. The young people thought otherwise, and on June 6, while ostensibly out for a walk, Potter is reported to have said: ""Why not get married to - day?" "All right." Miss Simonson replied. Then the couple began a hunt for a minister. It seemed as though they would never find one, but finally the Rev. Albert H. Studebaker. pastor of St. Matthew's English Lutheran Church, at Sixth avenue and Second street, tied the knot at his rectory, 509 Fourth street. The young couple then returned to their respective homes. Mr. Potter frequently called at the Simonson home during the summer, but the family did not suspect that they were entertaining their son - in - law. It was a week ago last Monday that the news of the secret marriage was finally broken to them. While none of the family would have objectod to the match had they SUi. - p - aoft rheir rt - a"?ntei . x n:rat, mfc - news of the marriage was a hard blow to them. Mr. Simonson insisted that the marriage be published in the newspapers at once and quickly gave the young couple his blessing. The bride's father would have gladly given his daughter an elaborate wedding had she so desired, but the young folks thought best to forego all that formality. Mr. and Mrs. Potter are now living at the Simonson home on Bast Seventeenth street. FREE DELIVERY EXTENSIONS. Mail Carriers for East "Williamshurgh, Union Course and Wyckoff Heights. Beginning October 1 the residents of East Williamsburgh. Union Course and Wyckoff Heights will have their mail delivered to them by letter carriers under the direction of the Brooklyn Postoffice. This extension of the free delivery service has long been asked for by these settlements, and the granting of the requests by the Postoffice Department has made the people affected very much delighted. This extension will mean the employment of six new letter carriers, three each at Station E, at Pennsylvania and Atlantic avenues, and Station 8, Greene avenue and Broadway. At present the residents of East Williamsburgh must get their mails from Evergreen postoffice. Union Course from Woodhaven, and Wyckoff Heights, which includes Highland Park along the Boulevard, at East New - York ollice. Special permission had to be granted to Postmaster Wilson to send his men across the county line, where his immediate Jurisdiction ends, and while the extension of the free delivery service will not abolish the local postal stations, yet the people living within their territory will have the benefits of city service. It is at present intended to make two deliveries each day, with collections on the same trips. This Improvement in the postal facilities in these rapidly growing setlements will advance the development of the territory very materially, as it makes a difference whether a man living on one side of a thoroughfare had his mail delivered to him free, or. If he lived on the opposite side, he must travel two or three miles after it. ROBBED OF HIS "WATCH. William Smith, recently discharged from the United States naval service and now living at 1,351 Fourth avenue, Brooklyn, in the Center street court, Manhataan, this morn ing charged Christian Walker, a German. 24 ; years old, of 120 Second street, Manhattan, with having held him up and robbed him in 1 Battery Park last night of a gold watch and i chain valued at $50. Walker pleaded ignor - ; ance of the occurrence and was held by Magistrate Pool in $1,000 bail for the action of the Grand Jury. WAVY YARD BAND RETURNS. On Saturday the Brooklyn Navy Yard Band will return to the yard after the two weeks' vacation which Rear Admiral Albert S. Barker, the commandant, granted to it. The music which the band had been furnishing was of such a bad quality that the commandant thought a leave of absence from the yard for a short time would be productive of good results. It is said the band has been practicing vigorously ever since the vacation began. NAVY YARD NOTES. The training ship Dixie will come out of dry dook No. 3 this week, and will then, in all probability, be sent out to sea with another party of landsmen. To - morrow the cruiser Montgomery, now I lying at Tompkinsville, will arrive at the lo - cal navy yard to undergo repairs. She comes 1 here direct from Rear Admiral Schley's Soutn ! Atlantic Squadron. She Is to be placed out of ! commission, and will then be remodeled.

DEATH OF LUCKENBACH IS Found Badly Injured a scious on Sidewalk of His Home nd Uncon - in Front HAD BEEN ILL FOR SOME TIME. It Is Believed That He Accidentally Pell or J umped From a Bedroom "Window. It became known in the Eastern District this morning that Henry W. Luckenbach, a piano dealer at 3S6 Broadway, met with a tragic death during the early hours of yesterday morning. Mr. Luckenbach, who was something of an invalid as a result of nervous troubles for several years back, lived in apartments above his store, entrance to which is at 323 Division avenue. The apartments were kept by a housekeeper. Some time during the night the housekeeper missed Mr. Luckenbach from his apartment. On looking through an open window facing Division avenue she saw him at tired in his night robe lying apparently unconscious on the pavement fifteen feet below. She summoned medical assistance and several physicians soon reached the house. Mr. Luckenbach was carried into his apartments. It was found impossible to restore him to consciousness. Shortly before noon he was taken in a cab to the German Hospital, at St. Nicholas avenue and Stanhope street. At the hospital it was found that Mr. Luckenbach was suffering from a compound fracture of the right forearm, a fracture of the right leg and a fracture of the skull. He died in the hospital without regaining consciousness at 6 o'clock last evening. It is believed that Luckenbach either fell or jumped from the window. No particulars as to Mr. Luckenbach's death could be obtained at his late home this morning. It was said that his son Henry had left his home on South Fifth street and was attending to the funeral arrangements. The housekeeper, it is said, was so overcome by the tragedy that she is ill and Is now In Mott Haven, N. Y. The body was removed to the home of his son Henry on South Fifth street, near Keap. Coroner Delap will hold an Inquest in the case. The late Mr. Luckenbach was a widower. He is survived by his son Henry, only. Since his father's health began to break down Mr. Luckenbach, jr., has been conducting the piano business on Broadway. The late Mr. Luckenbach was born in Germany, 73 years ago. but came to this country early in life. He had been in the piano business In the Eastern District for about forty years, having occupied his Broadway store and Division avenue house for about twenty - one years. Before that he was associated with a piano concern on Kent avenue and before that was in Manhattan. He was a member of the Arion and other singing societies. THINKS THERE WAS A TRIAL, But Justice Mattice Reserves Decision in the Case of Mr. McCloskey's Pee. Argument was had before Justice Burr Mattice; Itllfc illuming lit 'oiiiJieiuc v... term on the return of an order to show cause why a writ of mandamus should not issue to compel Herman Gohiinghorst, clerk of the Municipal Court. Fourth District, to return a trial fee of $3.30 to Lawyer Francis A. McCIoskey. An action had been begun by Mr. McCIoskey in that court, as counsel for an administratrix of an estate, to obtain $50 with interest on a promissory note. Issue was joined and the trial was adjourned. On the adjourned day the defendant was not represented and judgment was taken by Mr. McCIoskey, by default. He had paid to the clerk of the court, in accordance with the rule of the court, $3.o0 as a trial fee, and, after judgment had been entered for the plaintiff, he demanded the fee, claiming that, as there had been no trial, he was entitled to the money. Clerk Gohiinghorst refused to return the money and the mandamus was asked for in the Supreme Court. Clerk Gohiinghorst had. before the return of the fee had been demanded, turned over the money to City Chamberlain Keenan and had no power to recall it. His answer to the claim of Mr. McCIoskey was rule 12 of the Municipal Court, as follows: "Trial fees paid to a clerk shall be in no case returned to the plaintiff after issue has been joined, except in cases where the answer has been withdrawn before the inquest has been taken or trial had." Belter and Flash represented Mr. McCIoskey, and counsel argued that the Municipal Court has no right to demand payment of a fee before issue was joined. The charter provided, in effect, that a fee must be paid. If trial is had. Justice Gaynor had held in a similar case that the fee should not be exacted before the joining of issue. In this case the fee had to be paid before the summons was returnable. Assistant Corporation Counsel Coombs, for Clerk Gohiinghorst, said that the $3.50 was incorporated In the sinking fund by the City Chamberlain, and there was no fund from which the money could be paid. It was certain that the clerk hadn't the money, and he should not and could not be called upon to pay it. The case in which Justice Gaynor made the ruling referred to was much more aggravated than the case at bar, and, moreover, the application was denied in that case. Bv the Court It strikes me that there was a trial in this case; however, I will take the papers. AT EAGLE PARIS BUREAU. Eagle Bureau, 53 Rue Cambon.

Just asJ&Fririch der Grosse headed for ican liner Kaiser Fredrich came "steaming down the North River, so that the two big ships must have crossed the bar in close order. Their respective times to the English channel will be watched with interest. BODY PTJLLY IDENTIFIED. Rankine "Wrote to Chicago Before Jumping Into the Bay. Sergeant Morris, temporarily in charge of the Detective Bureau at Police Headquarters, received this morning a letter which he said positively cleared up all question of the identity of the man whose body was found off Staten Island yesterday, with weights attached to the feet. The man is James Rankine of Chicago, a boiler maker, who has been working here for some time. The letter received was from Chief of Detectives Luke Colleran of Chicago, who said that the body of the man found was undoubtedly that of James Rankine and he inclosed a letter postmarked New York, August 26, and delivered in Chicago on August 27.

ROBERTSON NAMES THE SCHOOL COMMITTEES. Andrew T. Sullivan New Chair man of Finance and John J. Gashman of Buildings. NEW MEN ALL WELL CARED FOR. Important Changes in Local Boards. Dresser Chairman of Girls'. and Dr. Hunt of Boys' High School. President Charles E. Robertson of the Brooklyn School Board this morning filed with Secretary George Q. Brown his changes in the standing and local committees of that body made necessary by the appointments of new members by Mayor Van Wyek In July. The delay in filing these changes has been occasioned by the failure of the Mayor to nil the vacancy In the School Board caused by the resignation of Dr. John Griffin to ac cept the position of associate superintendent, to which he was. elected in July. The Approach of the date for opening the schools, however, made it necessary to file the present appointments, and the new member, whoever he may be, will probably have to wait until next February, when the School Board is organized, for assignment to committee work. The retirement of Messrs. Swanstrom, Maxwell and McNamee from the board left several chairmanships vacant on important committees, which President Robertson has filled only after long consideration and with men who appeal to him as peculiarly well equipped for those offices. Andrew T. Sullivan succeeds Mr. Maxwell as chairman of the finance committee, John J. Cashman advances to the chairmanship of the building committee, succeeding Mr. McNamee; Edward M. Bas - sett becomes chairman of the committee on sites, his first appearance on that committee, succceeding Mr. Sullivan, who was willing to take the second place on the committee. Arthur S. Somers advances to the chairmanship of the committee on school hooks, succeeding Dr. Griffin. Edward W. Collier, who was returned to the School Board after two years' absence, has been appointed on the committees on buildings, school books and the Manual Training High School. Dr. Kevin, the newest member of the board, Is on the teachers', health and Girls' High School com mittees. Mr. Hutt was dlstingulsnea as a new member by appointment on the finance MminittBc. he also going on the vacation schools and playgrounds and Girls' High Kehnnl committees. Mr. Hettesheimer be comes a member of the studies, rules and regulations and Boys' High School committees.

KNOCKED MRS. SCHICHT DOWN. Her Son Came to the Bescue and Cap tured Young Langweil After a Struggle. Mts. Anna Schicht, who lives at 68 Mauler street, had an exciting experience yesterday afternoon with a young man, who managed to knock her down and would have escaped but lor her son, who gave chase and captured the fugitive and held him until a detective arrived. Recently a number of brass letter boxes have been stolen from dwellings in the Bush - wick avenue precinct. In addition to the thefts the walls have been badly damaged and many complaints have resulted. When Mrs. Schicht discovered Theodore Langweil, 17 years old, of 239 Stagg street, tampering with the letter boxes in the hall of her house she immediately suspected him o trying to steal them. Before the youth had time to begin work she caught him by the coat collar and shouted for help. The boy struggled and kicked in her grasp, and finally gave her such a blow that she released heT hold and fell to tho sidewalk. Her son appeared at that moment and pursued Langweil, who ran away as the woman fell. Young c.ux - x. v iha fugitive at Lorimer street and Broadway. Tne two youths struggled desperately and finally rolled over on the sidewalk, with Schicht on top. He held the other down until Detective McGonigle appeared and took the boy to the station. This morning, when arraigned before Magistrate Lemon in the Manhattan avenue police court, Langweil denied that he had any intention of stealing. He was held in default of $100 bail, pending trial In the Court o Special Sessions. AN EMPLOYE ARRESTED. Charged With Stealing a Dressed Skin From a Morocco Factory. Patrick Sheridan, 39 years old, of 127 North Fifth street, an employe of McDermott & Howard, - who conduct a morocco factory at Park avenue and Schenck street, was arraigned in the Gates avenue court this morning on the charge of stealing a dressed skin and selling it. The firm has been losing skins from the factory, and there was a belief that somebody was systematically robbing it. On Monday William Collins, a foreman In the factory, saw Sheridan go into a cobbling shop at Bedford avenue and North Second street. Collins made an investigation and found, he claims, that Sheridan had sold Tony Corso, the cobbler, a skin bearing the trade mark of the firm. A warrant was secured and the cobbling shop was searched, and it is claimed that four remnants of skins belonging to the firm, beside the one bearing the trade mark, were found there. A brother of the cobbler identified Sheridan as the man from whom he purchased the skins. The prisoner was then arrested by Patrolman Patrick Conway of the Clermont avenue station houBe. Corso was arrested on the charge of receiving stolen goods. When arraigned in the court this morning, Sheridan pleaded not guilty, and was held until September 7 for examination. MOTORMEN FIGHT. James DeDucey, 35 years old, of 155 .Flatbush avenue, a motorman on the Flatbush avenue trolley line, had a fight last night with another motorman, Thomas F. Maher, of 87 Lott street, at the Vernon avenue depot, and as a result the trouble will be aired before the Court of Special Sessions. According to the story told to Magistrate Steers In the Grant street police court this morning, DeDucey was about ready to take his car out on his regular run, when Maher pulled his car up to the head of the switch and refused to let De Ducey out. The fight resulted and DeDucey - was held. INDEX To Classified Advertisements in Today's Eagle. CLASSIFICATION.

The Department of Charities and the officials connected with the County Buildings on Clarkson street, Flatbush, at last see the prospect of relief from the clouds of dust which in dry weather fill the County Buildings, raised by the passing of vehicles and funeral processions which pass the doors on their way to Holy Cross Cemetery. More than a year ago Commissioner Simla pleaded that measures be taken for the improvement of this state of affairs on Clark - son street. When steps were taken, however, to that effect it was found that the street had not been laid out as specified In the town survey map,. Hence It Is found necessary to go through the regular street opening formalities in order to take the nee - , essary property to make the street conform with the lines laid down in the map. Now that the Street Opening Commission , has been appointed to condemn the necessary property, Borough President Grout will push the matter through the Board of Public improvements. The old street as it now exists would have been improved long, ago but a protest by the property owners in that section held the matter up. .In this protest they say - that the present existing street has not been sewered, and submit that that should be sufficient reason that sewering must be done in the near future, as it would practically destroy any macadam pavement previously laid. A second ground is that the present existing street is not the official street, as laid down in the town survey map. It is a serious detriment to the property In that section that the old street lines exist, as they are now open; but more than that, tha property on the south side of the street has been rendered almost unsalable. The property owners contend that the city authorities are obliged to recognize the lines called for in the town survey map as official lines upon which they must apt. CHARGED WITH FORGERY. Edward Lewis, 65 years old, of 758 Bast One Hundred and Thirty - ninth street. Manhattan, who for two years has " been bookkeeper for Henry J. Harding at 667 Broadway, was arraigned in Jefferson Market Court this morning by Central Office Detective McConville on a charge of forgery in the third degree. Lewis is accused of manipulating the books of the firm in such a way that he secured $300 of the firm's money. Magistrate Olmsted held him in $1,000 for examination. STRIDIRON WILL RECOVER.
