His Honor Mayor Qulney was equally vigilant not to say anything about the situation, maintaining a resolute silence and absorbing himself In the voluminous pile of state papers his de.sk. The lesser lights in Hie hali followed the example of their superior and also refused to throw any light on the situation.  Hut little by little the real history of Hie investigation, and the process by which the carving knife was put Into the i scdieme of the loot.-rs, l.s leaking out.  1 The story goes that oven- a month ago ! information of a must serious and start-! ling nature was confided to the Hon. J. J. It'orbett, chairman of the Democratic city I committee. In a quiet way he made something of an investigation of the ru-* mors, and aftei satisfying himself that 'there was sornetlilng wrong, he Viad a 'consultation with Mayor Quincy. As a result of this interview the Mayor sent for Huperlntendent Wells and gaVe him What Information he had.  Wells himself had heard a good deal of the talk that Clerk Mulrey waa making, and the Mayor gave him explicit orders to go ahead and investigate the entire division, and if he found any evidence of wrong-doing to place it at once in the I hands of the district attorney. The super-I intendent atarted In at oni'c, conducting ia mo.st searching c xarninntion of tlie books and vouc'hera. The suspicions of both the Mayor and his superintendent of streets were aroused in the first place by the out-rageuualy high pay rolls'at the time of  Shuman  Corner  Tie  will be virn much in evidence during Easter wceh\    i/i-  Hpection of the MesHrn, Shuman^H P UHhington St, window reveals the most delightful combitiallons of gentlemen* s neckwear.

The superintendent is entirely new to the line of work in whicli he is engaged, and while his integrity is unquestioned everywhere, th re is a feeling of wide prevalence that he is somewhat slow and irrc.solute in Hic discharge of his duties.  When Xlayor Quincy first got intimation of Mulrey’s doings lie ordered Wells to remove him troni the position of teaming lol's clerk ternporariiy, Hiat is, during the invesHgaflon, and if any irregularities were fouiul to dkscharge iilm absolutely from the service. This was tlone and then Mulrey consulted an attorney to -see if he could not in some way get his position back as teaming rolls clerk.  His attorney callisl on Hk' Mayor to urge him to put Mulrey back in his old place, but the veteran lawyer, wlio ha.s weathered a great many forensic storms, was given a severe shock by the Xiayor when he was told that in all probability the grand jury would deal very much more justly with the Mulrey ca.se Hian h«‘ possllily could.  .Mthough imiiortuiied by men of the highest standing in tlie Democratic pajrty and in other parties to intervene and prevent a further in vestlgatlon, the Mayor refused to recede from the po.sl-tion he took at the outset and stood by his guns, insisting that the scandal should he pro'oed to Hie bottom, and Superintendent Wells carrieil out his orders to the letter.  3'here is .i very general Ixdief at Hi« ha.I that Hio investlgaiioii will go very mucli fartlier, and that before Hu* crusade against the looters has been flnlshed frauds for eight years back will have been unearthed.  “Why,” said a prominent city ottlclal, la.*'t night, “this sort of thing ha.s lieeii going on Indefinitely. HoHi the paving iiii l sewer illvislon.s are ,otten from the ground up and have lieeti years. Hut 111* trouble Is to locate it aiul originate a system that will put a stop to it."  Hut this is exactly what Superintendent Wells intend.s to do. Although liaving a tremendously big job on his hands he has set himself to the task of InaiiguratiiiK a sysdern that will insure honesty in the dep;irtnu>nt, or Instnntly e.stablish what-evi r dishonesty is attempted.
