Walker Opponents
Ridicule Charges
Of Tapping Wires
(By Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Oct. 2-Opponents
of Mayor James J. Walker in the
mayoralty campaign today ridicul-
ed charges that telephone wires
serving the executive offices in the
city hall had been tapped.
Announcement by CharWv M
Kerrigan, assistant to Mayor Walk-
er, that a terminal box in the ciy
hall basement had been found bro-
ken open and a short piece of wire
discovered inside indicating activi-
ties of a wire tapper caused a fu-
rore in city political circles.
Police commissioner Whalen as-
signed a squad of detectives to the
task of hunting for the wire tap-
"If they wanted to find out any- I
thing about the city's business they
wouldn't tap the mayorps wire,"
Fiorello M. LaGuardia, Republican
candidate for mayor, said. "This
s certainly a compliment to Wha-
len's policing. By the time I get
ready to go to the City hall on Jan-
uary I there probably won't be
any city hall left"

Richard E. Enright, former po-
lice commissioner and candidate
of the Square deal party, said:
"I hope they didn't tap the wire
between Tammany Hall and the
city hall. It is the most important
wire in the city administration." I
Suspicions of attaches of the
mayor's office were aroused by un-
usual noises and other defects in
the telephone service during the
past two weeks.
