Although it is a friendly suit, brought at the instigation of Mayor Boody, a determined effort is to bo made to cut off tne homo from any further benefits from the city. For years tho institution has boon run at an enormous profit to tho direelore, and the city au thorities, although annually contributing over 00,000 to its support, had no voice in tho man agement of its affairs and were even kopt in the dark as to what was being done for tho money esponded. Mayor Boody has been opposed right along to any further contribution lroai tuo excise fund. Mr. unite and .Mayor Boody had a conversation about excise affairs and finally tho former sent Mr. Boody a letter culling attention to tne law under which tee home was recoiving tho money, and advising that further paymont bo stopped.

Aitrea r. vtnito, lor wuom it was intonaea. called at tho mayor's office subsequently and read it. Tie expressed himself as entirely satis - fled with what tho mayor contemplated doing. Corporation Counsel Jsnks was told to look into tho laws of 1S77 and M3S and later ad vised that there was some doubt as to the legality of tho act under whloh tho money was being paid. From the time that Mr. Jeuks expressed doubt all further payment to the home was Btoppod. and tho suit loliowed. Mayor Doody, when seen to - day. said that Mr. White had read nis ( Boody's i reply to the letter sent to him and that as soon as Corporation Counsel .Tonks gave an opinion it was deter mined that tho legality of the law be tested. oontroiler Corwm said to - day that bad he known tho mayor had received a letter from Sir.

Mr. Anderson offered no objection to this. Mrs. Belaney resumed : "I am a widow and livo at Providence. My moans are such as enable mo to live m comfort, my health is excellent and I have hosts of friends, but my life is made miserable by a friend who has tho gift of pneumatic hypnot ism. "What?" said tho lawyer. 'Pneumatic hypnotism," repeated tho visitor. "I suffer agonies in conseciueneo. Tho scoun drel who is responsible for my sufferings is a fellow towr.smon of mine. Ho is Michael Smith of 10 South Main street, Providence. lie has known mo for years, but It is only within tho past few mouths that he has begun to exorcise this baleful inl'.uonco over me."

The result you see here," At this point she handed Mr. Anderson a recent copy of tho Washington J'ost wherein was described her call on the President. The privato secretary turned her over to the police, but tho result was not toid by tho Po.s t, 'The worst remains to be told," she then said. "Smith exorcisos his breath power over mo nt all distances. I have been right through New England in tho hopo of escap.m; fiom his influence, but in vain. No matter what dlstanoo I am from Providnen Smith has only to breatho when thumpi" hero Mrs. Deiauey struck herself a resounding whack on the breast. "There, the breath strikes mo like that. I am black and blue with tho force of those breath blows. My body and limbs are covered with tho signs oi tuo power of ms breath. "1 refuse to furnish lurther proofs until that man leaves your office." she said to Mr. Anderson. This was just what tho lawyer wanted and so llogau stayed.

Sho had a baby about 4 months old in her arms, and running over to Mr. Dick, fell on her knees before him. "Let my husband go." she vdeaded. "He hna been bad, I know, but it will kill mo and mv child if ho is sent fo jail. Have mercy, for you can s,iauu uiu soss. oven n no snouia never pny you, while I will lose a husband if you insist on punishing him." Mr. Diok told her gently that her husband would havo to pay the penalty ot hia crime, and for u moment it seemed as if Mrs. Woebberking was going to havo hysterics. She recovered herself, howevor, and wont into tho pen to soa her husband and give him some little delicacies before he was taken to police headquarters. Detectives Holland and Dolan, who made tho capture, were warmly complimented by Mr. Diek to - day for tho clover work they had done in tho case.

JOHNSON WANTED A WRIT But Justice Cullen Decided Not to Grant It. Ilie District Attorney Continues to Cbject to the lloapportionnicnt Decided on by flic Hoard of ,'upcrvisors and Maintains That Wards Mioni - .l Sot Be Separated Outline or Argument on Both Sides. This afternoon Jesse Johnson movo - J boforo Justice Culien, sitting in special term of tho supremo court, for another writ of mandamus in the assembly apportionment ease. Somo time ago a writ of mandamus was asked for to compel the supervisors to reapportion tho county. It was denied by tho special and the genera: terms. Tnu court of appeals granted it, howevor. Then the supervisors met and reapportioned tho assembly districts. The present writ was sought on the aliagatloa that thoy have not obeyed the court's icanuate. Oa tho argument to - day Mr. Johnson dordnred that the assembly districts should be' as nearly equal as possible in the matter of population and tiiat they should be convenient and contiguous. Iu their apportionment tho supervisors had divided the wards. Mr. Johuso:. maintained that they had no right to do this, as a ward should be considered iu the iia - ht of a town. In short, counsel said the board had not complied with the order of the court. They hnu not made tho districts equal aj to population as the writ required. Mr. Johnson said tho nvorago for ear - h of tho eighteen districts would be 55.1:12, yet tho Sixth ward was mado one assembly district, wkh a population of 4S,9 - Ji. Tho Twentv - ilrst ward had a population o: 57,000 and yet i: portion of the Seventh ward had been lopped off and added to it in order to mako a district with a population of 01,000 or ii.000 more, than the proper average. The Sixteenth uistnct consisted oi Gravcsend. Fiatlands, Part of the 1 wenty - sixth ward and most ol tho 'I'wsutv - Hith. 'ibis in all gave the district 5,000 more than it should have. Course! then went oa at groat Ifmjth te point out similar alleged improper divisions of liie districts. In tlie return to tiia writ o." maudnn - i'js run :o by t lie supervisors in the Andrew I. Baird ease, the issuance of t:ie writ is admitted am', tiio r - . - turu 1hers - :o. Jr is aiso ndmlttad that the board civi - ied the county into assembly districts. They say, farther, that thny have no knowledge upon - .TUieii to ;orni ;,r.y belief as to tho allegation that - - crtcin of tiio inhauitnuts returned 'in the districts as being inhabitants of the eountv at large are inmates of institutions. As to the allegation that the total numbor of citizens is ,SS5,S1S and thnt 1 - 18 of that nuir.i.er is i - 4S,07!l, they claim the llguros are incorrect. Ail tho other allegations are denied. Thev dony that the assembly districts havo not been earri - dd out on liie theory ol contiguous territory and they maintain that tho county was divided in a - 'eordnuce with tho constitution and the decision ot the court of appeals. They den v, moroovor, that they had any intention of disregarding the oruer of tho court. Tito return sets out that the population of tho county, according to the last census, taken in l.S!i2, was 'J'Jo.uld. From this was tatcon 5,203 for tho number of Inhabitants of charitable institutions, leaving !)'iU,!fS3. Thn supervisors say they gave tho llguro of 937,874 in tl previous return because tbe.y wore unabio 'fMftscor - taiu the exact number in tho varioussection districts. 'jr Corporation Counsel Jeuks anpeaiM in opposition to Mr. Johnson, argumdSja: tho apportionment had lon made uccontcag to tho constitution and the mandate of thrf jfjurt. Justice Cullon denied Mr. Johnsou's application. ' On tho other motion, whieh is practically for a now writ in tho name ol diaries Whitney and oinors, an aujournment was taken to allow Mr. JJcnks to prepare aflldavits. HOW THE NEW TAX IS LEVIED. What Presidents Flynn and Lewis Have to Say About It. THE BROOKLYN CITY OFFERED A GUARANTEE. There Is Jio Intention on the Part of (lie Com - panics to Avoid Payment of the Tax on the Cross Receipts The Trolley Xow Has Enll Swing Aborc the City Hall and Cars Arc 11 u lining To - day on the Seventh Avenue and Put nam and Ifalsey Ilcutes Horses are Reir.g Used on Comparatively Few Lines and the Officials Who Have Had the Cliansing of Mo tive Povrcr in Send Begin to See Daylight Ahead. Prosident Lewis, speaking in relation to tho tax which tho common council imposed upon the company when it granted tho Iranchiscs for additional mileage, said. "It seems that somo people will not understand that the tax is levied upon the actual earnings of tho Brooklyn City railroad from operation; that is, from the faros collected on the entire route. There is no at tempt upon tho part of this company to evnde the paymont of tho tax, and it has boon made very clear that tho wording of tho resolution does not moan a tax upon tho rental which tho company receives from tho Brooklyn Hoights Cable rai.road. By law that company is compelled to take upon itself all of this company's obligations. The payment of that tax will be made without cpjestion just as has been agreed upon. I havo offered to secure the payment of it in tho manner intended by a bond of the Brooklyn city railroad, bat it was not thought necessary by tho city authorities. Of course it is not possible to Ugure oxaotly tho amount which we will have to pay to tho city, but it will be, as nearly as wo can estimate, $12,000, possibly a littlo less if tho earnings of tho railroad vary from tho estimate, or if tho increase in the miioage makes a difference in the percentage we are to pay." P. H. Flynn o the Nassau Electric railroad said that it was an easy thing for people to say the railroad companies would not pay tho tax as they had agreed to do or that there was any intention to take advantage of the city by uncertain wording in tho resolution. It was sufficient, ho thought, that tho citv was satisfied with tho arrnngoment after having tho taxation clause carefully examined by the city's counsel. Tho tax which his company will pay to the city ho thinks will be between . 15,000 and 620,000. The Putnam avenue line of the Brooklyn City raiirond was operated for the first this morning by the trolley system. President Lewis said that for somo time - he has boen receiving letters from people who use that lino of cars, asking how much longer they would bo compelled to Wait before thev OOuld Secure thn ndvnntni.nc rf tho trolley. A few more curs are bein'' ouer - atod to - day than woro in use when horses were tho motive power and the trips are made a UttIe;closor together. AU of the ears seem to be carrying a groat many people. The opening of Putnam avenuo as a trolley road makes it now so that the Urooklvn Citv railroad has not a single oar drawn by horses above tho city hall. Fulton stroet has all the benefits of the trolley and all its disadvantages as woll from tho intersection of Washington stroot and Myrtle avenue. The next line which Win bo turned into a trollev road is the Mvrtlo avenue one.

Talk of Boarders, Diamonds and a Fifth Mortgage. The Preacher's Former Counsel Testified gainst Kim To - ilay in the Snit Wherein He is Charged With Running Cottages in Connection With His Gospel Work. The Bev. Dr. Putnam, tho ex pastor of tho Baptist Tabernacle, New York, and tho antagonist of the Bev. Dr. Potter, testified again today in tho supplementary proceedings brought by Henkol & Co., coal dealers, against P.ov. Dr. Potter. L P. Elder, Dr. Potter's former lawyer, also testified to his late client's worldly possessions. Ho made somo surprising statements, and Mr. Hatton asked Dr. Putnam what source of income Dr. Potter has outside his salary. "Boarding girls." "Bo more explicit," said counsel. "Dr. Potter ran the Young Women's homo at 225 East Eleventh street. To avoid paying rent he movod it to quarters iu the parish house. He received 54 a week from the young women. Last May thoro were sixteen, but at present there aro only six boarders." "What do you estimate hi3 profit to havo been?" "Ho cleared S25 a woek and probably more, as ho failed to pay tho iceman and milkman." xno witness then told of Dr. Potter's nronertv at Shippewan Point, Conn. lie said the hotel brouuht in S2.200 n vnnr and 31,200 was received for three other cottages. "Does Dr. Potter collect tho rent ?" "His wifo occupied a handsome ooitao - n Dr Potter proposed that she rent it and ocennv n smaller cottage herself and collect the 4sl,000 rent for hor own. V.'oil, Potter collected that rent and his wife never saw it." "You say Dr. Potter ." began counsel. "No, I said Potter. That's "cood enough for him." answered the witness. 'I. I'. Elder was then sworn. He testified that Dr. Potter wore diamonds. Since the trouble in the church ho did not believo lir Potter had received his full salarv. "Who pays tho salary?" ''Oh, some benevolent gentlemon." He said Mrs. Potter had not boen in tho city ior three years and that Dr. Potter, he understood, ran the cottages in. Connecticut. "Would you bolievo Dr. Potter under oath?" "I refuse to answer, on the ground as his former counsel ii would be a broach of professional etiquette." In explaining about the mortgages on the Shippewan property tho witness said: "Elder Abraham Donlko loft a legacy of SS.OOO to bo known as tho - DeniKe Fund for tho Poor.' Dr. Potter in 18H0 applied this fund to his porsona'l use, and Chairman of tho Board of Trustees John IL Kayser demanded the monov. Dr. Potter satd he would give him a first mortgago on the Shippewan property. Then President Kayser found out that it was a fifth mortgage. The property was alroadv mort gaged for $20,900, and a fifth mortgago was practically worthless. President Kayser is still very angry at Dr. Potter and has threatened to prosecute him criminally for misappropriating tho fund." Tho proceedings wero adjourned until tomorrow at 10 o'clock. T. E.
