Bleakloy, the murdoror of bis nleco, Mary Aim Foloy, alias Maud Morrill, turns out to have boon nothing moro serious than a transparent dodge to create sympathy. The facts are as follows t At 4 o’clock this morning, as Keeper Orr was making bis rounds of the prison, bo saw Blcakloy’s arm sticking out of bod and covered with blood. lie immediately unlocked the cell-door, and discovered the mur derer lying on bis back, apparently in a stupor. A small pool of blood was oq tho floor, and near it lay a Woody razor, one used by the prisoner to shave him self, After binding tho wounded arm tightly with a rag, On* put Bloakley in a atraihfc- Jacket, and awaited tho arrival of Dr. Noolls. It was found on examination that the murderer had cut a slight wound in tho fleshy part of his arm, a little above the elbow, and had oarefnlly economized tho little blood which flowed from It so as to give tho arm and surroundings as much tho appearance as possible of a desperate attempt at suicide. Ho had taken groat pains to steer clear of any artery. A few pieces of stick ing plaster dressed tho out, and beyond remov ing tho razor, no precautions wore taken against a repetition of the deed. Tho following fottor. written last night, was found in his coll, which had previously boon put In tho noatost order. “ You might take my life, my integrity, never.” New Tons, Friday, April 34,1073,—G00d-by Lolly. I wrote for you to como, but you did not. To tbo world and all men. lam going before my God, and my last words are. I never wronged my nieces In any way, morally or otherwise, I never received a cent of money of any kind from Mary Ann Foloy, my late niece, who I always loved os a parent and guardian. No matter wbat anybody save ttod, whoso presence I hope to bo in soon, knows tbls is troth. Those who know me best both In the United States and elsewhere, will speak a kind word for me. I had many faults, but I always loved my sister and children, and hone to bo with them | soon. I shot my poor nleco, but did not go thereto do so. It happened In the moment of frenzy, i tnltl everything lam guilty of to her. I hope God will for give Lotty for what she said at tho Coroner’s Jury. I want her to go homo ond bo a mother to the rest of my sister's children, and give them my lovo,xfor I will never boo any of them in this world but hope to In tho next. 1 know full well tho game* that is playing, hut it won't do. Give my watch to' Lotty. God forgive my enemies and calumniators. (Signed) Rodebt P. Bleak let. Bleakloy shot bis nleco because she refused to continue to give him part of tho wages of her sins. Since his arrest he has been extremely despondent. He says ho has no money and no friends. Tbo other murderers looked down on him on account of his shooting a woman. Ho refused to outer a ploa of insanity when ar raigned, and insisted on pleading guilty. Tho Government will publish, next week, tho official statement of Phelps, Dodge «fc Co.’s case, in which the firm will bo shown to have sworn falsely, and to have been guilty of a wilful tempt to defraud tho rovonue. A number of damaging letters which passed botwoon the firm and the officials, but which wero suppressed by tho former in their recently published explana tion, are to bo incorporated.. The statement is drawn up and ready to go Into tho hands of tho printers. As soon as it Is put in type, it will bo Riven to tho newspapers for publication. Tho officials claim that they have boon driven to this course in self-defence by the assertion of Phelps, Dodge & Co., that tho Government in sisted on taking from them $271,000 while con ceding tholr innocence. Ever since tho passage of tho now United States shipping law. and tho establishment in this city of a Seaman's Exchange, sailors’ board ing house keepers have manifested tho moat I potent opposition to its workings. They handed ! themselves into an asaociotion under tho namo I of the Sailors’ Boarding-House Keepers’ Associa- 1 tion, with the avowed purpose of opposing the 1 enforcement of tholaw. For a while they wore con tent with conducting their illegal business in an underhand way, but latterly they have been em boldened to such an extent that they kept agents stationed in tho Exchange to prevent seamen from entering. When persuasion failed they did not hesitate to resort to downright violence, and in several instances boat and abused their poor victims because they ob jected to bo robbed of their advance pay, and to become accessory to violation of tho statute. This course exercised such terrorism ovortho minds of tho seamen that they wero afraid to go near tho Exchange, and business then dwindled down to almost nothing. Capt. Duncan has for some time had tho utmost difficulty In filling orders for crows for vessels which wore disposed to obey tho law. Last week the ship North America, bound for Melbourne, and freighted with a cargo, worth half a million .dollars, was compelled to postpone her voyage throe days from this cause, and had dually to send to Boston for a crew. Another source of complaint'arose from tho fact that tho Ex change was in the habit of paying (< seamen’s notes,” as they are called, for money duo tho boarding-house keepers, throe days after sailing of seamen whoso names were appended. Lately Capt. Duncan has noticed many irregularities in tho filling out of those notes, and some have ac tually boon presented with the debtor’s signa ture omitted. Tho boarding-house keepers have gone farther, and have recently demanded that tbo notes shall bo paid within tnenty-four hours of tho departure of tbo seamen. Capt. Duncan at length grow tired of this, and recently presented 127 names of members of tho Sailors’ Board iDg-Houeo-Koepers Association to District At torney Phelps, with a request that ho would take action on tho evil. This morning, tbo Grand Jury found indictments against the whole crowd for conspiracy and combining to resist the I United States law, and bench warrants wore I immediately issued for their arrest, tip to 9 o’clock fifty-throe had been captured, and tho police were on tho track of others, although It Is known that some have got wind of tho action of the authorities, and mode themselves scarce. H. L. Powers, of the Grand Central Hotel, was arrested to-night at the instance of Ellis H. Ellas, proprietor of the dollar-storo in tho samo building. Elias’ dog spoiled one of Sir. Powers’ carpets, for which bo demanded SSO damage. Elias refused to pay, and Powers seized a piano belonging to him. Ellas replevlncd it, but fail ing to find it, brought suit, and an order of arrest was granted. When Deputy- Sheriff Curry attempted to serve tho order, Powers resisted and called tho servants to his assistance. Curry thereupon summoned a posse, and charging through tho assembled domestics, dragged Powers out on tbo street, and lodged him in Ludlow street jail. Subsequently Pow ers’ brother deposited $450 security with Under- Sheriff Stevens, and he was released. Several capitalists from tho northern portion of Hudson County, N. J., project a ship-canal under tho Palisades from Woohawken to Hobo ken.
