mntlaalonar Bingliaia baa bora buily
engaged In attempting to secure de
tective "who ran detect and patrolmen

It la hoped, will at laat succeeded by
efficiency. Of all tbe ahlfta and chan
ge wblcb bare marked the recent abake
up la the Folic Department, but one
may be tald to have caused general and
dllnUretd regret. : Tliat wa the
transfer of Lieutenant John J. Dunn
from tb bead of tb Wall Street
branch of th Detective Bureau to dek
duty In tb little fUblng village of Can
arele: Dunn ia 75 yearn old, frftyone

Wall Street, and before that a aleutb
connected with th main Detective Bu
reau at 300 Mulberry Street, b U one
of New York most famout peraonall
tie. Great secret of Wall Street are
hidden In the brain of "old Johnny
Dunn," a be ia familiarly called, lie
knew Jay Cooke, W. IL Vanderbilt, Jay
Gould and Jim Fiike intimately In their
day, and among the present generation
of Wall Street financier whom be
eounta a hie friends, are J. Plerpont
Morgan, Edward U. Uarriman, IL W
Roger. Tboma F. Ryan, Jamea R.
Keen, John W. Gate, and many otu
era. For year bit oflle ba been in the
old and new building of the tock ex
change, whence be baa directed the ao
tlvitie of the Wall Street equad
spinal the hordea of crook and eranki
who venture to ero the'"Jd line"
to pwy upon the ftoancial district either
by force or cunning. Once before, when
McAdoo wa CVimntifioner Of Police,
there wa a plan on foot to force Dunn
to realcnt but tb lilir men in Wall
Street whom he knew Intimately, or-
ganlred a parade and! threatened to
march Upon headquarter in a lody and
demand Ma retention, If le epectacu
lar mean were not effective. Thi time,
however, Comtniatloner Bingham has
firmly decided thai tbe time lal come
for him to retire. But old Johnny
Dunn, equally determined to die in the
harnet which he ha worn a'nee 1850,
ha borrowed a uniform and accepted
the tranafer without a murmur.
In one Eddie Lewie, hitherto known
to fame, Wall Street hat a budding fl
nanciep who buin acumen may
one ady fill the breach which will be
loft by the retirement of John W
Gate. At present "Eddie' i only 1
telegraph messenger whose frequent
trip to the vicinity of Wall Street and
Exchange Flaee have given him un
limited opportunities to observe things
while -ragging the bumble vender of
lunch commodities who cater to the
modest appetite of the curb brokers
and their messengers. For a long time
EdJio's own daily sandwich and glass of
milk were purchased at a certain popu
lar stand until be noticed that the taste
of the brokers ran particularly to ear
dine sandwiches, und that the stock
was never ufikient to meet the in
tistent demand. - The nest day was
pulled off the only successful eorner
all Street has ever seen since tbe fa
moua Northern Pacillo coup. Before the
lunch hour arrived, Eddie made his ap
pearnnce with five of his comrade in
uniform, and together they purchased
110 sardine sandwiches the , entire
stock of the place. When the brokers
appeared, hungry for snrdine sandwich
es, Eddie and hi confederates stood on
the sidewalk and offered to dispose of
their holdings at double the usual price.
In exactly fifteen minute they had
cleaned up their "corner", ht a tidy
profit snatched from under the very no
seof the wise gentleman' who spend
their waking hour In dreaming what
they would do with a comer if they
could get one.

$3,000,000. They provide position and
salaries for a small army' of politicians

the way of rentals and fees dwindles to

The strange looking, near-white bird,
with long, sharp beak and claws and
curiously masked with tiger-like stri
pings, a puzzle to ornithologists gen
erally, which for the past week has
been hovering over that portion of the
city which lies between City Hall and
the Tamany wigwam, has at lat been
identified a the bird of political peace,
somewhat the worse for wear. Ex-
Judge Morgan J. O'Brien, "Big Tim"
Sullivan, and Corporation Counsel El
lison, are endeavoring to lure It from
the, sky to a nest in City Hall Park
with a new kind of bird food in the
form of an agreement between Mayor
MoClellan and Boss Murphy which con
tains the apparently irreconcilable ele
ments that the former is to remain un
hampered in all the appointments and
policies of hi office while refraining
