Shannons Appointment His Duties as to Says Hyams Used of tbo Public Recorders Call on The Judge Powers Says Considerable interest has been aronscfi by tho announcement of a probable shortsvge in the Recorders office and as Recorder Hyams In morning paper directly at tacked his deputy Mr Thomas Shannon the latter was interviewed yesterday and asked whether before tho charges were made he had investigated the books of the office He replied us follows I had never investigated the books or accounts of tho office any more than start ing to make a rough estimate or statement when riyams took tho books and said tic would make out a statement of tho af fairs of tho Were you evor asked to explain any shortage or was never asked to explain any dis crepancy nor had I an opportunity of knowing where or in what way any shortage When did you first learn o anything of the kind Tho first intimation I had of any short age was when my fathorlnlaw sent for mo aud told me that Mr Hyams hud informed him that I was short In my did you socuro an appointment in the Recorders ollleo I went into the Recorders office on tho 9th or 10 of April last upon Mr Hyainss solicitation entirely and as for Judge Pow ers recommending me to hlrn or asking him to give mo a position ho never did In fact he knew nothing about tho offer that Mr IIyams had made rno until after having asked Mr Hyams for a week or ten days to consider tho matter and ho had agreed to this I came to the conclusion that it was the best thing I could do I told Judge Pow ers that I had been offered this position and I felt it was tho best thing for me He said ho was sorry to lose mo hut that he did not wish to stand in my way It was after this when I accepted tho have you to say as to how the ac counts were kept No account was kept of thellcenses issued and paid for excepting a small daily mem orandum cash book until I went into tho office when 1 took up a monthly cash book that had been commenced by some one in which every license excepting liquor li censes for which I kept a sepaiato account and by tho way of which no account what ever was ever kept until I went into the issued was entered In tho memo randum cash boolc referred to every cent that camo into tho office was entered and at tho end of the day tho money In the drawer was counted and always compared with tho footings in the cash book J speak of course of tho time I was In tho office which was nearly two months after Mr Hyams entered upon tho duties of Recorder and what was done before tho Oth day of April I know nothing of At tho end of each day for three or four weeks after I wont into this office the mouey accumulating that day was turned over to Mr Hyams who put the same into a tin box in the vault as I had no key to this box nor lid I know the combination of the vault until a month or so ago when tho same was changed and I was given a memorandum of It Three or four weeks as I say after I wont into tbo Recorders office Mr Hyams gave mo u key to this money box in tho vault and always after that whan I had counted the money at tho end of the day I would place the same In this box and It accumulated Mr Byams would turn tho sa7ne over to the Treasurer However on tho 7th day of Juno I said to Mr Hyams that there was considerable in this box and chat I had better turn it ovor to tho Treasurer when lie told me to do so After I had counted tiny moneyarid given Itto the Treas urer and ho had checked ofr the deposit slip I hundod hlni and saw tho amount was correct I asked him for a receipt and ho gave me one T took the same into our office and after looking around for tho receipts which I thought Mr Hyams must necessarily have I asked him where his receipts were as I wished to put the ono I had with them he told me that ho had none and that was tbc first time I knew that Mr Hyams had never taken a receipt for any money ho had turned ovor to the Treasurer I asked him if ho didnt think ho ought to have a receipt from the Treasurer when he turned over money to him Ho said he thought ho ought and thereupon asked Mr Walden for receipts for the money ho had previously turned over and that gentleman than took his cash book and wherever he found that Mr Hyams had paid over any money ho gave him a receipt for tho same After talking over the care lessness of that sort of thing Mr Walden suid that Hyams had upon ono occasion while ho Walden was out brought in over S1900 and laid it down on tho desk and walked out When Mr Walden came into tho office seeing a pile of money on his desk he asked the Auditor who was the only one in the office where tho money came from and ho said that Hyams had been in and supposed had loft it Mr Walden counted it and asked Mr Hyams some time during tho afternoon if the amount was correct and he said it was Waldon there upon made an entry on his cash book of this When would tho cash book be checked up At tho end of each month the monthly cash book was checked from tbo daily cash book so that tho money was never again referred to after it was deposited in the vault until Mr Hyams camo to turn it over to the Treasurer and he would then simply and turn it into tho treasury As I have said before I have kept a separate monthly cash book for liquor licenses copying in it every license issued When the money for theso liquor licenses was paid to anyone in our office would at oncotake it to the treasurer to get his receipt for same then at the end of each month I would check off the monthly cash book from the Treasurers receipts In the month of July I think when I camo to ohebk up the cash book from tho receipts I discovered that wo had no receipts for money paid by J W Elliott and Murphy both liquor dealers I referred to tho applications and found tbat they had been paid and Mr Hyams re ceived tho money I asked him if he had gotten no receipts from the Treasurer and ho said no that tho fact was he was a little short in the bank and had placed that S600 to his credit there but would give his per sonal check for same which he did A day or two after that when I for the second or third time went to turn the mouey we had in OUT possession over to the Treasurer Mr Hyams came desk and took his check out that he had given in payment of Mur phy and Elliotts licenses and said he would not turn it over j for a lew days I then deposited the balance with the Treas urer aud after that I never saw tho check as that was tho last time I think I ever turned any money over to tho Treasurer I understood from the chairman of the Finance Committee a day or two ago that Mr Hyams denied ever giving his check in payment of these licenses or of ever appro priating that money to his own use On learn ing this I told the Chairman of the Finance Committee and the Mayor that If Mr Hyams denied this that I had no hopes of ever finding any shortage that may but that as far as I was concerned the in vestigation could What have been your expenses personal to yourself since you went into the Rccord ors office My actual expenses have been about per month rent to for 55 for coal I dont drink I haye never been in a gumbling bouse sold pools on horse races or speculated oh tho Mining Have you used any Not one single penny and I tho most open and searching MJl HYAMSS COUKSK On Friday evening Recorder Hyams came to THE TKIBUSB office and requested that nothing be suid about the affair that he hud no charges to mako against Mr Shannon or any ono else that the whole matter was Hablo to be simply a discrepancy in book kocplng and in the the investigation of the Council Finance Com mittee he had put up the Apparent short age S2200 Ho was shown what THE TKIB UNIS proposed to say and went away appar ently content But it appears that ho thought of a different courso afterwards and unburdened tho full tale from his stand point to a morning journal to which tho above statement of Mr Shannons is a reply JUDGE POWKKSS STATEMENT I said Judge Powers yesterday that Mr Louis Hyams through a morning paper virtually announces that his deputy Mr Thomas Shannon is responsible for tho alleged shortage in his office and that tho paper is particularly rough on Shannon be cause he was formerly in my office I do not foel thac he should suffer oven if I am so bad a man Moreover if Hynmss charges are as false as his statement that I recommended Mr Shannon to him they have not the ghost of the shadow of truth Hyams offered Shannon the position without my knowledge I was not asked to recom mend him although I would have willingly done so I found him to bo thoroughly honest and trustworthy It is needless to say that I shall stand by him and see that ho has a fair show Hyams knows that I did not want Shannon to loavo me and that I so told him Eichnor and Hong are the only men at tho City Hall who aro in any way responsible to mo for their TUB FINANCE COMMITTEE It is understood that tho Finance Commit tee of tho City Council has sometime been
