Having, as they believe, established the  identity of the supposed murdered  man, the detectives are now busy developing the case against Rathbone. Ho  lias told several stories, but the one  that he stuck to the longest and which  ho still insists is true, is that he.formejl  the conspiracy in conjunction with a  deserter of the regular army by. the  name of Blanchard. He states that ho  and Blanchard met hero by Agreement  and formed the details of the plot  ' Blanchard agreed to provide 'he corpse  t if Rathbone would set fire to tlio buihl-  ' after the corpse was prepared. "Blanchard brought the body there." laid-Rath  bene. "I hacK nothing to do with the  killing of the man and doubt it he was  killed. The man may have died acei-  ,-, dentally, but I do not know anything  about this. Blanchard. however, acted  too quick in finishing (he game before  tho hotel could be set on fire."    . :'  Rathbone today admitted, according  to the authorities, that the cm an who  accompanied him to,the hotel in Jeffersonville, Indiana, and was found-  dead the-next day, was Charles-Goodman who is said to have ��� come from  Bvansvillo, Indiana. Chief of detectives  Sullivan, and chief Applcgale and coroner Coots , of JeffersonvPle, interviewed Raihbone loday. Rathbone listened as one by one the crmimstances  which the police .regard as proofs- of  his guilt were laid beforo bini by chief  Sullivan. According to the - officers  Rathbone suddenly sprung up and  walking hastily to a window, looked out  for *a. few minutes. Then turning liko  an animal at bay he faced the crowd  in the room and (asked in a shaking  voice:  "Whatis the punishment'for offenses  of this kind in Indiana? Does the death  penalty exist there?"  "Never   mind   about  the  death   penalty Rathbone."  said captain  Sullivan..  "What  wo   are   interested   in   is .the  name of the dead man.'  For, a  moment   Rathbone  looked   at  *=th*^group=6fifaceF"lK!fofe^lfiinn"lrAl'thcr.  s.iid:  "Your are on the right track. Goodman is the name of the  dead man.   1  met him in front of the fcoiii-fj and in  tended to keep him -drunk for several  days and then fix him."  When Questioned further'* Rathbono  denied having given tho c1 <vul v.nti laud  aniim. and said ho would have made us'j  of chloroform.

COLUMBIA, South Carolina, November 12.���Governor McSweer.c-y had a  unique experience as the result of the  confetti ar.d rubber ball throwing that  marked tho close of Columbia's fair  About five hundred young fellows,  mostly boys, formed In double line in  front of the leading hotel and tb..!  stream of pedestrians were pelted, aim  caned. Finally, a squad of police waa  telephoned for. They charged in and  each policeman grabbed a boy. One was  the son of a prominent citizen. Just  -then governor MeSweeney, hurrying  to .meet an 'important engagement at  the hotel, came up the street. The little prisoner seized and begged to be relieved from the guard house. The. governor offered to deposit the fine. The policeman started off with the boy and  the boy pulled the governor.

Can Be Seen-Forty Miles.  BALTIMORE, November 12.���Ships  that pass in the night to and from our  waters will, with the coming of the  rew year, be guided by a shaft of light  which proclaims a great evolution in  marine signaling, straight into tho  dome of night a mighty radiance wiil  be thrown that, it is estimated, will be  vis.tlc for thirty or forty miles at sea.  Diamond Shoal Lightship, No. 71,  jyhich is commanded by captain Tawes,  will bo tho lirst to exploit thc new electrical apparatus. Sho ariived Wednesday to have the necessary fittings installed and will commence operations  January 1st.  Commodore Albert Ross,1 who is responsible for the latest device, is the  inspector of tho Fifth Lighthouse District. His improvement on the present  system will be tis enormous as that of  the big electric beacons over the old  oil lamps. Hitherto the clusters of light  at the tops of masts of lightships have  been discernible at thirteen miles' distance. While these will not be abolished, the. main points along the coast  will shoilly be equipped with the new  light, which is a ..3-tnch electric beam,  and, in thc words bf the inventor, "a  regular skyscraper." Fire Island, Sandy  ���Hook and Nantucket Shoals will probably be equipped with the apparatus at  an early date. For three months and  seventeen days Lightship No. 71 has  stood at the Hatteras station. Her  showing for that long vigil over the  safety of those at sea is a dry goods  box of old periodicals sent aboard by  passing steamers. Her captain and crew  are enthusiastic over the. new responsibility she will assume.  with the total of the bond, but just  sufficient to cause tho intending purchasers to withdraw and the property  remains unsold.  A REMARKABLE COINCIDENCE  Is " Rathbone " Rathom ?  A dispatch from.. Louisville, Kentucky, which appeared in The Tribune  yesterday morning concerning the arrest bf a man named Newell C. Rathbone upon a.charge of attempting to  obtain money from insurance companies  under false pretenses, was read with  considerable interest by the' newspeper  men of Nelson. From the dispatch it  appears that Very'little is known of the  pris-oiier. Rathbone, but at the time of  nis an est he was carrying v gold watch  upon which was engraved the name of  "VV. H. Ellis."  The singular coincidence in connection, with the dispatch is that at one  time there was a man named John R.  Rathom employed on the Victoria Colonist, and that at thc same time the  manager of the paper was named W.  H. Ellis. Rathom was oue of the most  inlere:ting personalities connected with  the press of the province ten years ago.  He was a bright newspaper man and  a veritable soldier of fortune. He first  made his appearance in Vivloria about  1SS9, ot the time when newspaper men  were- scarce. _. He was wearing army  clothing at tho tiniP.-.-HTifl-n". there was  a big sham Jiattie taking place at Victoria, Rathom got an assignment. There  is not much in a sham battle for the ordinary newspaper man, but Rathom was  right in his element, and he turned in  five columns of a report containing a  technical review of the fight .whicn had  rever-before been equaled at Victoria.  Rathom in consequence got a steady  job, and in a short time, as the result  of changes ou the staff, ho became city  editor. He^had a faculty for getting into  trouble and was reduced to local work  and virtually let out.  From Victoria he went to Astoria  and became editor of the Daily Astoriau  From Astoria he went over to China  during the trouble with Japan and upon  his return secured work on the San  Francisco press.' He was credited with  being the first newspaper man to get  an interview with Butler, the celebrated  Australian criminal who was arrested  -upon=his=aTrival*=at-*=Saii*=Francisco=foi,i  a number of murders which had been  traced home to him. Wheu the war with  Spain broke out in Cuha Rathom enlisted and served with the United States  troops, but after this he appeared to  drop out cf sight. While in Victoria  he claimed to have had several years'  experience in the Chinese army with  the rank of lieutenant, and he could  make himself fairly well understood  with most of the Chinese in Victoria.  He also claimed to have seen service  with tho ,British troops in the Egyptian campaign of 3SS5, his statement  being that he was one of the volunteers  from Australia.  A Deal That Didn't Develop.  All the mining deals that are knocked  in tha country cannot be charged up  to the greed of the men who work *or  wages ner to the bin dens imposed upon  the mining industry by the well-meaning members of, the legislature who  havo been commissioned to take the  present shift in the molding of the  laws of the province. If the story told  by a prominent mining man be true  there are other factor.", which do knocking quite as effectively as the minor..'  union or tho misguided members of thc  legislature. His story is that a few  weeks ago one of th�� owners-of a silver-lead property made a trip to London for the purpose of disposing of a  developed mine. He had his-- deal all  framed up with, a ...ming promoter  who was to put it before the London  investors. Thc consideration agreed on  was $5,000,000. The vendor and the  midddleman wero to meet at New York  and take passage together for London.  The middleman missed his connection  and the .endor continued his way across  the continent. After his arrival the  vendor found that he would have several days before the promoter could  arrive and he decided to fill in a portion of tho time in revisiting his old  home in Ireland. AVhile the vendor was  in Ireland the promoter fixed things  up with his company ami everything  was in : hspe for the transfer, but just  hern the hitch occurred. The purchasers were willing to pay ?5,000,000 for  the property if it should be found :is  represented, but wheu it came to n.otl-1  Tying the vendor he raised his price I  just ?50,000, a small amount compared |  Novel Marriage Ceremony.

FORT WORTH, November 12.���Two  great mireral *.. discoveries have been  made in the Rich Hill district, in Arizona, almost simultaneously. The find..  . are only a. few miles apart, and each  has created a sensation. The flrst, a  discovery of large lumps of native silver in th'i Suhuara mine near Wicken-  burg, was followed by the uncovering  of the mother lodge of the ledge of tho  Octave miDe. The silver discovery is  one of the most-remarkable or. record.  Nicholas Miller and Jo.

Many outfits have equipped and  are locating iu the vicinity of the sensational discovery. What v/ill develop  into oDe-of the richest gold fields on  record, according to the latest reports,  is tho locating of the extension of the  Octave ledge at Rich Hill, where in the  early days $1,000,000 worth of nuggets  were removed from tho'crevices on the  mountairs by mineis merely armed  with butcher knives. They had besn di-  lected into that wild and remote region  by Ii.disns. who for years had found  great nuggets there. Many times the  wealth of tho nuggets is centered in tho  mother lode, which is probably the  source of supply for all the gold lodges  of that region, embracing those of tlm  famous Ccngrc-ss mine, the newly developed but rich Octave lode, and many  minor ledges. The Kliscovery was mads  by Frank Cstarnowski about two months  ago, but not until the other day was  the massive ledge, varying from 200 to  400 feet in width, clearly defined between two walls. He has located 75,-  feet along the lode.  ROSSLAND, November 12.���[Special  to The Tribune.j���Mackenzie King has  gone off for a trip to Spokane.

The time came, as it was sure to come  at last, when Martin Dooner had to stand  ������with his back fo the wall and fight for  his political prestige. Not that iii his  Uventy-five years of power had ho met  -.".with no obstacles. There had been times,  especially at first, when he had to fight  with all the fervor of a Donegal stranger  at the Donnybrook Fair; but ho had  won, and had got so in the habit of  winning that for many years he considered himself entitled to his power almos'/  . by prescriptive right. Ho had been alderman for a quarter of a  century.    He  . kept a saloon. He knew every man in  his ward, and he introduced into it many  strangers on election day to exercise th-i  , freeman's right' of voting without legal  permission     He had been in fights in-  1 numerable, both physical and political.  He had been called every name imagin-  alle, "except those applied to saints, and  had the repu ation of being a b:ul man  to run up against. His picture appeared  in public print very often, and not always accompanied by eulogy. None of  thesethings, moved'him. He carried his  ward in his vest pocket. He was a  power that the bosses had to reckon  with. He got his share of appointments,  his proportion of the "rake-offs" "in contracts, and paid his assessments or carried liis ward in a most masterful manner.    When  one  thought  of the  Sixth  . Ward,: it was '.-.to.'think:, first" of; Dooner.  He was the- ward.*  He'gloried; iri--it to  ��� the extent, that he went to any length  to maintain his position.    He was not  . rich. His saloon paid well, and ho was  not in politics "for his- health," Jmt he  was not avaricious. Beneath a rougb  exterior and. behind, an. almost brutal  mask there beat as kindly a Celtic, heart  as ever reached America on the threshold of manhood.  Dooner. was a type, a development of  politics.' One of his ancestors hail ..been  hanged in '9S. His own father"had been  shot in an altercation over "the rent,"  though this was long before the "Plan of  - Campaign.'' Martin came-fo America  alone and fought out. his ca'reer on his  own feet As a youth he had gone into  a brewery, and had soon distanced all  his competitors in ability to swing kegs  high up on the old-fashioned drays. He  fought hisdearest. friends to prove that  ho could not be slighted with impunity.  Becoming collector for the brewery, he  showed his fitness by returning a smaller  . -percentage of bad debts than any of his  predecessors. This was a.ccomplishe-1  partly by blarney, partly by a shrew: 1  calculation of the debtors' ability, and  partly by the use of a pair of fists that  looked like cannon balls, and felt much  thc same at the point of -impact. It war  natural that beforejong he should have  his own saloon in a neighborhood that  was not well, known for its intellectuality, but one where the spiritual longing.-:  of  the neighborhood  required  frequen!  ��� a? suaging;^=At~twenty-five^he=*-went=into=  politics,- and carried his division by o  majority of -132 where the total legal  registered vote was about 389. Tim-  showed a capacity for leadership, a  fundamental understanding of democracy  ��� as it was practiced and above all, a perception of the undeniable fact that the  longest pole knocked the persimmon. He  war, good at making political poles.  At thirty he made the first big fight  of his life, and. carried" his ward for  alderman with the generous assi.'tanc:  of men who had been imported for th.  jiurpose. His opponent contested the election, but as ho had too many glass windows in his own house, the matter wa?  dropped for a consideration. Dooner developed rather slowly. He knew his limitations, and did not scede for power af  once. He looked after his fences an<J  prepared for belter things in future  l'atronago was his weapon of offense and  defense, and his constituency was such  that he did not care for tho more lucrative offices, but would trade off a good  clerkship that was due him for two  street-sweepers and a scrub-woman. Ir  this way he built up a little machine of  his own that ultimately became well-  r.igh invincible. But ho had to fight for  a time. No one but he knows wha'  schemes hercarried out to win, and he if  licit telling anyone. Out of. the nettle danger ho always managed to pluck the  ���flower-safely,Until at last resistance  seemed almost useless, and for years he  lived, not only supreme in political pow-  ��r, but looked upon as a sort of patron  of the. ward to whom every man iv  trouble went for aid. The widow without  coal and the "drunk and disorderly!' a'  the police station sent for him with unfailing regularity and never iu vain.  There was no postion in this country  so unique as that of a ward leader in  the so-called slum district of our cities ���  His leadership is not all brutish, and if H  is to be replaced, it will require some ���  thing different from  the ordinary con  ception of theoretical reformers.   Doone;  had  grown-with  his  ward,  which  had  become metropolitan in race, language  and  habits.     He   alone   kept   in   touch  with the constantly ���shifting; population.  Whon he opened his saloon,.there wer*'  a few Irish- ar.d Germans iu tho ward,  and thc rest ����� ere native born.   Now tin-  latter scarcely amounted to a handful,  hut there we're gathered together men  women and children (particularly children) from every quarter of the globe ami  from almost every nation. Indeed, Doon  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three por cent.  GRANGE  V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch,  "could furnish the foreign missionaries  of a large deuomir-ation with enough  subjects for .spiritual aid to keep them  busy without crossing the water, and in  all the discomforts they could expect  in the jungles of Africa. There were  Italians who ;dug ditches, Jews who  made;cheap garments in miserable garrets, Swedish longshoremen, Greek sail-  ois, Syrian peddlers, Chinese laundry-  men, and a long list of others who spoke  no English, and, if they lived in squalor,  looked on their condition as heavenly  compared with what they had left behind. To all these Dooner was a. lord of  the manor, a political boss, at elections,  and an ever-present help in time of  trouble. "     .  It was not pure selfishness. Doonsr was  above the average in shrewdness, even  it of little culture. He took pride in  maintaining his prestige, and looked upon his retainers with joy and compassion. He could have done less without;  endangering his prestige, but half-heart-  edness was not one of his characteristics.  In manner he was gruff; in language  sententious;.in conduct kind. He could  "swear the iron bars off the cagi3 at the  stalioii-house," according to report, but  he promptly: bailed the transgressoi. Ha  could berate a trembling Italian who  asked~the loan of fifty cents until ne  shrunk visibly, but the money was paid.  Time had not dealt kindly with him.  He looked ten years more than his age.  Besides his own troubles ho had helped  carry those of others under circumstances that were not health-giving. He  was grim, grizzled, and morose. His wife  was .dead; and he had no children but  his '"constituents.-*1 Life had seldom looked  as gloomy to him as on that September  morning, even beforo ho heard the news.  When the blow came, he was crushed for  a* time. He would have given anything  to be back in the green fields of Ireland  without responsibilities and withour.  care. .'  It came about on this wise The mayor  of the city, who was the head of the  machine with whose fortunes Dooner's  were constantly.bound up, died suddenly  ofapoplexy, and under the law the president, of the Board of Aldermen succeeded him. This simple statement is  luminousonly when explained. The new  mayor, Hartshorne, was a deadly enemy  of Dooner's, though they were both cf  the same party. - There had been somo  words between them on the fio-n- of  councils concerning a contract. "$Vho  was in the right matters little. It led  to recriminations, and finally to Dooner'-j  offer to settle the matter outside the  chamber. This was rejectedwith a contemptuous remark that rankled in  Dooner's breast. Each had threatened  to "do" the other, but the occasion had  never arisen until now. By a stroke of  fate, Hartshorne was in a position to  deal .lift c-.uomy hard: blows.  Dooner knew this only: too well, tie  spent little time in mourning for the late  n.ayor���his mind was fixed on his own  future. He could do one of three things  ���get out of politics, which on many accounts would have suited him; try and  make peace with the new mayor; which  his pride would not allow; or fight. He  saldjiothing and waited.   It .was not for  HEAD  OFFICK. TORONTO, ONTARIO.  Branches in Northwest Territories. Provinces of  British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and Quobcc.  H. S. HOWL AND.  D.

Three days after the funeral word"  was sent out by the "old man," as the  mayor is always known, to "break"  Dooner, who most unfortunately was up  for re-election in November.  At the first announcement Dooner's  friends rushed to his support. They promised him everything and threatened  dire evil to his opponents. Dooner said  nothing. He knew the worth of such  promises. He might have got out altogether," but the death of the mayor was  made tlio occasion of another sporadic  attempt to reform councils, concerning  whose membership not much good could  be. said that was true, and nothing bad  that was wholly false. A Committee of  One Hundred Best Citizens was organized to carry out a campaign to purify  councils in the coming elections, and it  was generally understood that thoy  would fight nearly every sitting member.  When tliis was known, Dooiur made up  his mind to fight. He could stand aside  as against a machine man, but against  organized opposition of mugwumps ho  would not quail. His coat came off and  he stood with his back to the wall.  The situation looked desperate enough.  Orders went cut that every office-holder  in the- ward should turn in against him.  There were lots of them, every one of  whom owed their job tb Dooner, but  they owed their future to the mayor,  who could cut off their heads instantly,  and would do so without the slightest  compunction. Many of these came with  tears in their eyes to Dopner and bemoaned their fate. To them Dooner  gave thc advice that they obey order?  and save their jobs, but to do no more  than required. He would rather lose  thanseo his cohorts impoverished. Tho  bitterest experience of his life was when  the police lieutenant of the -.District  came in. and in the back, room of the  saloon announced that the old man had  ordered his defeat, and that it was inevitable, and suggested that he(Dooner)-  "throw up the sponge" in advance. The  lieutenant was a young man whom Dooner had known since he played in the  gutters. It was due solely to Dooner  that he had got on the force, and had  ben promoted over ihe heads of older  ���and better men to be a lieutei.'ant. There  had not been a time in the past ten years  when a, word from Dooner would not  have, "broken" him. It was pretty hard  to be told hy this youngster that he  must get out. The lieutenant felt worse  over tho situation than did Dooner.   All  NELSON   BRANCH,  BURNS BLOCK.   "  A general banking business transacted.

LAY, Manager.  and he set his jaws together in a way  that made his auditor squirm. Nothing  under, heaven, after this, would have  kept Dooner from making the; fight.  It was hard work. Deprived of the ser-j  vices of his office-holding lieutenants, he;  had to organize the entire ward anew.;  Just what he did and how he did it is too'  long a story to tell; but from the mo-j  ment the fight  hegan  there  was  little!  sleep on either side.   Of course Dooner's;  long  leadership   had "created  rivalries,;  which from time to time had to be sup-;  pressed with money, with ofiice, or ���by-  means of an overwhelming defeat at the;  polls.   There was one nian. whom he had  befriended,   not   only   in   politics,   but  whom he had kept from serving a de-|  served term in the penitentiary. Thomas'  Mallon    had    received   favors   enough.'  But no man believes he is the creature  of others, or that he succeeds other than  on his own merit.    Mallon was made'  leader of the opposition, but was altogether too shrewd to run himself.   Hj  discovered a lawypr of ancient lineage  and wealth who had a constructive residence in the ward, and set his sails to  catch the wind  of reform that seemed  to be blowing a gale.    Edward Murch-  ison was a surprised man indeed whon  told that he had been selected by Mallon  and the gang to lead the forces of re-,  form.   He would have declined, hut most  of thc committee of One Hundred were  his friends, and tbey urged him to stand.  Murchison knew much more about English "politics than about the politics of  the ward he was to lead in this contest.  He was a cultured man of leisure and  refinement.    The political   bee   did   not  sting at first:   But when Murchison got  into the fight, he was warmed to an enthusiasm that was not exactly suited to  the situation, and it was made the excuse for many and large drafts on his  purse by Mallon,   "for   legitimate   pur:  pesos only." ,  Thc crisis came in the middle of October, when all 'candidates for office were  asked to appear before the Committee  of One Hundred to present their claims  for'endorsement. Dooner's flrst impulso  was to decline; but when he considered  tbat this would be considered a sign of  weakness, he determined to go and fight  it out. He would have faced a crowd of  hyenas-rather than seem'to admit anything to his own discredit. He appeared  at the appointed time before the committee, of whom at least thirty had  found time to leave their own affairs  and be present. The chairman was a  business man of standing in the community, but the chief inquisitor was a lawyer who had joined the movement for  purposes of his own-. He had Bis eye on  the district-attorheyship. There wore  business men, lawyers, clergymen, phy-r  sicians, and men; of many callings on  the committee. Most of them were honr  est and earnest. .Few had practical ex-f  perience in affairs, but each felt that the  safety of the nation rested on his shoulders. The colloquy was in part on this  wise:  The Chairman.���"Mr. Dooner, you are  a saloon-keeper, I believe.1'  Dooner.���"I am."  The Chairman.���"Do you consider that  a calling to fif^a man to administer the  ._ffairs_of"tliis-city?''= ���������������r  Dooner.���"As much so as the fact that  one member of this committee is 'living  t^^^ry  lyiail order receive our prompt  and careful attention.

The Chairman.���"That is not to the  point." .   -  ' .  Dooner.-���"It is to the point that I  work for a living under a license granted  by tho judges of this city, arid that no  complaint has ever been made that-1  violated the law. As to whether it is a  good job to fit a man to. serve his constituents. 1 -say it is better- than doing-  nothing."  The Chairman.���"Don't loso your temper, but come to the point at issue. I  believe that you keep a low groggery  where the worst of liquor is sold.".  Dooner.���"I believe there is less drunkenness in my place than in tho swellest  restaurant In this city, where wino is  serv.ed against the law after midnight  Saturday. I close when tho law directs.  Some of you gentlemen have drunk  champagne at three o'clock Sunday  morning "  This was not a fortunate beginning,  so after a hurried consultation in whispers the lawyer .undertook the cross-  examination,    '.r* -yx  The Attorney.���"Mr. Dooner, it is reported and believed that you are deeply  interested in the street pacing.contracts  of this city, and that you have made  .much money out pf them."  Dooner.���"It is reported and believed  that the chairman of this committee  gave fifty thousand dollars to the last  national'campaign, and for this he was  permitted to write one paragraph in the  tariff bill that has made him ten times  that an.omit at the expense of the taxpayers of the nation."  At this the chairman grew war;.n, and  attempted an explanation, but the discreet attorney waved him oft' and said:  "Answer my question. Have you or  have you not made money out of contracts bv your influence as a councilman?"  At this Dooner's ire began to rise and.  he blurted cut.  "I never did so except legitimately, as  a stockholder in a concern that did the  paving; but I see a man in this room  and on this committee who was convicted of telling inferior goods to the  almshouse. At tbe least I never was accused of robbing paupers."  Thereupon one of the most respected  members of the committee arose und in  unfeigned anger shouted:  . "It's a.lie! -One of my employees did  without my knowledge send some infer-;  ior Igoods, but. he was^discharged, for the  offense." :'���-*" "  *-���   *.*.      ���** :;;  "You're a -liar," roared Dooner; "he;  is now employed hy you as "your New  Vork agent.   Don't be a sneak."  At this there was such a prospect of  a row that a large number of the.committee rose arid begged that the' proceedings he directed properly, and that  tho members not bo insulted. It took  some time to .quiet things down, and  then the chairman took the helm again."  The', Chairman.���"It is reported and  believed that you have taken commissions on important public contracts."  Dooner.���"There is a member of this  committee who personally came to me  and offered me what was, in effect, a  tribe if I, as chairman on the committee  on schools, would vole to purchase a site  he owned for a school-house, and I  threatenfd to throw him out of my saloon."  At this a pale-faced gentleman arose  in anger, and denounced Dooner as a  liar.   Said he-.  "I saw this man and asked him to consider "this site. I did not own it, and  had not a dollar's interest in it. I acted  as the trustee of an estate, and was  bound to protect the nterests of my,  clients."  There was a murmur of applause at  this, but Dooner cut the ground from  under their feet by yelling at the top  of his voice:  "Yes, you were the attorney for ''.he  estate of your father-in-law, and your  children are the sole heirs to that property.   I defy you to deny it."  There was no response, and the chairman took a new tack.  "Mr. Dooner, you are not answering  the questions of this committee,-and are  not helping your cause. Will you please  answer categorically a few questions?  Did you not vote for tho gas-works steal  that robbed this city of millions? I  have the record here." '   ,  "I will answer that," yelled Dooner,  "if every man on this committee who  profited hy that,sale will rise and tell  how much he made." ���'  This was a poser, for the grab had  been notorious, and yet the "Best Citizens" had been stockholders in the  company that got the works without the  payment of a cent. Dooner was at bay,  and he did not propose to lose a single  advantage, and so far he; had ''made  good."  It would he wrong to say.that he en-,  joyed even the temporary advantage he  had so far gained. This committee was  composed of men whom Dooner had  known or heard of for years. Thoy were  the^silk-stocking" element.    Thsy sel  dom interested thero selves, in public affairs, except at presidential- elections,  and not six of them, had ever attended  a primary. They were theorists for the  -most part,-and had great faith in their  own academic views. . Few of them  knew how "the othet Zi-ult" lived, and  fewer of them cared. They were not bad  at heart, but they wero ignorant of th-3  great pulse of the people. They had certain views which they suddenly found  themselves divinely called upon to pror  mulgate. They were to save the. community, and they looked on Dooner as  a worm, perhaps as a viper or a vampire,  that was sucking out the vitals of the  public. To say that Dooner despised  them would rot be to tell the truth. In  his inner heart he knew that these men  had what was denied him. They had education md refinement, but, more than  all, the ref-pect of the community. They  wero locked upon by th�� hest people in  the city even as he was looked upon by  his own constituents. He would havo  liked to be one of them. He knew he  was not logical in his answers, and yet  ho knew enough of the facts and of human nature to find the weak spot in their  armor and pierce it. The questioning  now took a i-ew turn.  "Mr. Dooner," said the chairman,  "have you any statement to make before  this committee as to why you should be  endorsed for re-election? It is hardly  wise to continue this .form of investigation, as'we shall get nothing but questions in reply to our. own. Let me ask  you as to your opinion of your opponent.  Dc you not think Mf.jMurchison is a better man to represent this city in counr  cils than yourself? i.Gc'riie, now, that is  a fair question." "j  "Man. and hoy, I have lived in that  ward for thirty years," said Dooner,  "and I never saw him in my life. I have  heard of him ��is a lawyer, but never  know that he took any interest in anything. I have seen his name in the papers as heing in Europe with some big  guns, or in society here, but 1 know no  more about the man than Adam. Why  is ho not here to meet me and answer  questions also'-"  This was another poser; for tho fact,  was that Mr. Murchison had entirely  forgotten the situation, and was at the  moment busily engaged at, a social function attended only hy persons of the  highest social distinction. A well-meaning but misguided member of the committee rose at this point and said half  apologetically:  "Mr. Chairman, Mr. Murchison Is all  right. , I can vouch for him. I have  played golf with him many a time." H3  sat down with a feeling that he.hadtjov-!  ered the entire situation. This roused';  Dooner's ire once more, and he burst:  forth in a tirade which closed the sit-'  ting. Orly when angry did he drop into  the veri&cular. '  "Gentlemen, youse may think that a  golf player is the kind of a man to make|  laws for this city, but I tell you there'  isn't a man   on   this   committee   who'  knows what ho is talking about.   I live  among the people who work and sweat:  and eat but little, but what they do eat  isr earned honestly.   They don't live on  th'e gains of their forefathers, nor wear,  fne clothes at the Iheayter.   There isn't  a man here who could run my-ward.a  day without getting himself into troubl'! j  I'm not a learned man.    I don't know'  furrin-languages, nor do I pretend to he  more honest than I am.   I never cheated  a man in my life.   I have taken care of  men aud women and children-for years  who would be turned away as beggers  -from' the doors of any one of youse at  anytime.   I know my people.   They suffer, and I help them.   They hunger, and  .1 feed them.   They get in jail for drink,  and I help them out so they can. earn  bread, for   their little   ones.    The law  works'queer. There are men on this committee    who    have    committed    worse  crimes than have sent   men   from   my  ward.to jail, and yet they set here in  judgment on one who has never, sent one  .hungry from his door."  ^ He.stopped for a moment, and a hush  fell over the assembly.   He was no orator, .but be felt that he was making his  last stand, and was resolved to say. what  was within him even if it cost liis.election.    His pride was up,  and nothing  now could daunt him.  "Gentlemen1? I didn't come here for an  endorsement. I came here to show that  Martin Dooner is not afraid to meet any  man. I don't want this committee to be  for me. You're not rny 'kind, and you  know no more about my ward than you  do about Choctaw. I have led these  people for years.'" In good tiuies jind bad  times .1 have .been their .'friend;--1 .have  helped .widow's and /children" that have  been driven fronr institutions conducted ./by ..irembers , of this, committee.: I  gave up miy own room..to a poor, sick  girl when she was re'fused at every hos-;  pital in this city, .and :.shp, had .never,  been in ;my ward .before.,in';her life. . 1  never turned, a ; sick/or; hungry . person  from my door ih.niy life,....

I may have done things  none of youse would have done. I don't  c7)ifi6^asTri"o^&'ain^  Judgment there will never be said  against Martin Dooner that ho was a  hypocrite,: that he failed to feed the  hungry or take care of those in trouble.  If youse thinks that.a golf player is the  kind of a-man the people in my ward  wants, you can endorse him and be  damned to you; for as sure as there's a  God in Israel'I'll lick the stuffin' out of  you at thb polls." And grabbing his hat  he was-gone.  To say that Dooner had net made an  : impression: on .the committee would; be  untrue. In spite of his faulty logic thero  were members who had a certain respect  for him, and,who even began to doubt  whether after all ho was so bad as,he  had been painted; but no one spoke In  his behalf, and Mr. Murchison was unanimously endorsed by the .committee  Dooner had so far followed a notable  example in scripture that he had made  to himself friends of the mammon of  unrighteousness, and in this crisis they  wero made to "give"up." Every corporation he had served, every man he had  helped In trouble, and every woman he  had befriended was laid uuder tribute of  one kind or another. The corporations  came to tim,o fairly well because they  were opposed to the new mayor, and  though they expected Dooner to loso in  this fight they felt sure ho would come  up again at a time when he would be  needed. They also, with charming impartiality," helped Mallon in his fight for  Murchison; but Dooner could make two  dollars go farther than.his opponent  could five. There were hourly conferences in the back room.,pf the saloon, in  haunts the. public, knew -nothing of, on  the street corners, and at office^' where  were located men who. could deliver  goods. One advantage Dooner had, the  election officers were his friends, and as  they were not dependent on the mayor  they were kept In Une. In fact Dooner  "stood them, up" with the threat that  he could and would send evory one of  them.to jail if they did not "play fair"  with him. . This expression needs no explanation to those who are familiar  with the workings of elections in the  slums of the cities. The Australian ballot system has accomplished many  things, but it has not yet purified elections to the extent intended. After all  the votes were cast, including many  that ought not to have been the counting must tako place, and there was  Dc oner's advantage.  A month previous Dooner would have  been the last man to take advantage of  his former generosity. He was no altruist, but he 'had not been accustomed  to the quid pro quo policy of benefaction. Now with his back to the wall he  had to take advantage of every straw  which would help. It was not he who  went about the ward proclaiming his  many virtues���ho was too shrewd for  that; but there were a number of men  of some standing among their fellows  who had felt his generosity, and who,  not without some hope' of future gain,  but really, to tell the truth; in genuine  gratitude, spent days and nights m talking to-the men and women who had  good cause to remember that Dooner  had Leon their; friend. Every basket of  coal he had sent to the freezing, every  square meal to the hungry, and everv  bad boy kept from jail ,were expected  to pay dividends in the shape of votes  ,It cannot be said that Dooner was com-  .fortable under this situation. He was  not. In the inner depth of his consciousness he hated himself for allowing the results ot the instincts of his  better nature at times when he was un-  trammeled to be used as clubs lor his  benefit when he was in trouble. But like  most men in difficulty, he could not refuse to avail himself of his resources.  To lose ,was to give up al) 'he counted  dear.  . If this were the only side of the story,  Dooner might appear in a most unpal  atable light. Unfortunately for him, he  was "up against" a situation where to  his own notion, he must right the devil  with fire. Mallon was not so able in his  way as Dooner, but he was shrewd and  energetic,'and he started in >vitb almost  all in his favor that Counts for anything  ir. the eyes of practical politicians. He  had policemen, firemen, street cleaners  gaibage-collectors, scrub-women, clerks  pavers, and what not under his control,  and every one was threatened with discharge if he did not vote for Murchison  and make all his friends do the same.  Every contractor interested in the ward  uas told to turn in under pain of their  work being declined by the city inspectors and no further contracts being  awarded. Even the poor school teachers  were,told that" they would not bo reappointed unless all their re.'ativcb to  the last degree-turned in for the reform  candidate. .There was some corporation  money, but this was nol so large as tho  largo assessment levied on the officeholders, who groaned at this outrage. If  ail the lies and threats in this campaign on both sides were consolidate'!,  and all the liars and threat-makers sent  with them, there would needs be another  chamber in Dante's "Inferno." Bulh^-  ing, pleading, appeals to cupidity, promises of more places than there were in  Jtie whgle_city,_offers_oficash,^and_ap  peals, to both the highest and "lowest in  human nature wereused on both sides  Every Commandment was shattered lu  the contest.  Meanwhile, where was Murchison?  That estimable gentleman was no sooner  in the thick of the fight than he wished  he was out of it. He was made to do:  seme handshaking among people who  were kot aware that such a thing as a  bath-tub existed. He insisted on a rally,  and made a speech one night to about  700 people, not one half of whom could  understand ten words of English. He  camo out strong for civil-service reform,  and was replete with allusions to that  degeneracy in politics which brought  about the downfall of Rome. It was a  fiat failure; and Mallon. who had opposed the meeting, was furious, and told  the City Committee to send the candidate out to the residence wards and give  money instead. Dooner dug up the fact  from one of his newsrr.per friends that  Murchison yearly visited the earl of  Rentraok, whose estates in Ireland had  been the center of hostility to the "Plan  of Campaign." He spread abi oud the report that Murchison hod once believed  Dreyfus was guilty. He plastered the  ward with pictures of Murchison clad iu  a golf suit, under which were the words:  CITIZENS, VOTE FOR MURCHISON,  THE  GOLFERS'  CANDIDATE.  In fact there was no trick known to  politics on either side that was not played to the limit. One week before thc  election it looked as if Dooner could not  win. Three days later it was a drawn  battle, and Muichlson was made give up  rooney at a rate that appalled him. On  the day before the election even Mallon  felt that the case was worse than desperate. He made a last appeal to his candidate for a large sum of money to "procure watchers at the polls." etc. Murchison was sick of it all bv this time,  and ho did not like the "touch;" but he  hated worse to be defeated, and did not  even exact a promise as to how the  money was to bo spent. Mallon was  wise in his generation. In spite of all  tho efforts he had made, he felt that he  had lost, and concluded it bad policy to  wasto the money on hand. He concluded  to prepare for eventualities; for a good  bank account is better than nothing.  As usually happens In a political contest in this country, the evil that is done  on both sides about cancels. If this  ���were not so, wo would long ago have  gone to political destruction.   After aU  the evils done by bribers and wirc-pul- ~,  lers and schemers of every sort in an  election, they ordinarily about counter- ~  balance, aDd the saving grace is the un-  trammeled voter. Not that this latter  class are saints or are after political  purity at all times. Very often they  want the very things that good men despise tut, as a matter of fact, it is these  who control for good or evil. The majority gets what it wauts.  It would be unfair to say that Dooner's  friends wero all vicious or without somo  '  of the higher ideals of life. Sometimes   '  in the hovels and tenements there areas clear ideals of justice and honor and '  truth as are found in the highest walks  in society.   There are men earning a dollar a day who could, perhaps, give lessons to professors of theology or economics.  Probably many   good   people   will- be  shocked at learning that this is a veracious   narrative   of   campaign    dealing  with actual persons, and that the result .  was decided not hy money, nor by influence, nor by any other ulterior motive. -  The fact was .that Dooner, with all his--  faults, with all his shortcomings, and if;  you please, his iniquities, was the real'  representative of his people.   In his way--"  he was as much the true type and representative of his constituents "as was  ever Daniel Webster or Henry Ulay. Tho  fountain cannot   rise   higher   than .its  source,   and   the   source   of .Dooner's  strength was that  he was one  of his"  people, a little' wiser,  much shrewder, -  and, while no one would claim for hiru  the saintly halo, it was a fact that, without  any professions or claim to godii-   .  nr-ss, he had fed the hungry, cared for  the sick, and visited the prisoner.   Not    .  all the power he'had acquired in politics  alono could have elected him.   Not all' *"  his shrewdness and the deviltry of which'  he was capable could have attained it-  But, like most of us,   he   was   neither  wholly good nor   wholly   had; his   impulses were better than his professions,  his acts wree better than his profanity.  On the night of the election there was  red   fire   in front   of Dooner's   saloon,  while within there was   liquid   refreshments for all, without money and with-*  out price.   Dooner was naturally gratified, but when the lights were out and  he sat down to think it all over, his sole  wish was that it had never happened:  that is to say, that it had never been  recessary for it all to happen.���Joseph  M Rogers in McClure's for November.
