CROOKED BARS ,
Some Very Qnccr Mm at ttoe City
The Books Tampered with , and
Prisoners Olairniiig to
An Apparent Attempt to Force OIH-
uors Out ,
There Booms to bo much queer work
going on in regard to the jnil and police
headquarters. All aorta of rumors and
statements are afloat , nnd two explana
tions seem to moot with fnvor , ono being
that somebody is plotting to got o Ulcers
removed , in order to make room for pots ,
or that some ono is'ronlly acting crooked ,
nnd trying to throw suspicion on to others
to evade detection. The matter should
bo investigated thoroughly by the author
ities , and all the facts brought clearly out.
P. D. Mottaz , who has proved an
ofliclont and nccomodating city jailor ,
has had oven his remarkable good nature
worn out by the annoyances to Mhtoh ho
has boon subjected by those who frequent
the police headquarters. Ho proposes to
resign rather than submit any longer.
Ho keeps n record of the prisoners , with
a record of the effects taken from them
when searched before being locked up.
This book has boon tampered with two or
three times. Ono tlmo n prisoner was
credited frith having about $23 , and someone
ono changed this on the book to $5.
Another time a prisoner had only ton
cants , and this waa changed by some ono
to twenty cents. Tools , tobacco , articles of
clothing , etc. , have boon taken. The
jailor has kept locked up in n room the
bottles of whisky taken from prisoners
and most of these have boon
emptied in BOIUO mysterious manner.
Ho has a little cupboatd in which
ho tries to lock up different articles , but
this has boon meddled with , and oven the
safe has boon tampered with. Much of
this has apparently boon done to annoy
him , while other acts have boon out-and-
out theft. Aside from this , ho claims
that ho has boon obliged to run errands ,
servo papers and notices , po the bank
and the newspaper offices for the clerk ,
and , in fact , been treated as an errand-
boy. Ho claims also that ho has boon
treated as though ho was not to ho
trusted , which seems to strike him hard ,
as ho has lived hero for years , and has a
solid reputation for honor in all things.
The $1,200 city clerk Booms to have a
suspicion that there is something wrong
about the meal-tickets , and has inquired
In an insinuating wayiwhat ho was do
ing with his money , and seams to think
that the old man is fit only to do his
beck and call. Then ho was to bo on du
ty most of the day and night , and when
ho feign would sleep in his room at the
jail , policemen instead of being out on
their beats , came into the station and
hung about laughing and carrying on to
gether , so that ho gets no rest. The city
jailor seems to bo gratified in thus resign
ing and ho says the only condition on
which ho will remain in the position are
that his duties may be defined , that ho
may have only ono "boss" , and that
these annoyances shall coaso.
It seems like a potty little
scliomo to force the old man
out of the position to make room for
some pot. It is to bo hopped that the
mayor and police committee to whom the
matter was referred , may have souse
enough and sand enough to got all the
facts , and not lend themselves to any
scheme , if there is ono.
S. E. Burdick has filed an affidavit
with the city council , setting forth that
Officer O'IMon arrested him without
cause , and took him to the station house ,
where ho searched him , took § 8 from
hi'n , and locked him up on a charge of
boiiig drunk. Ho claims that the olllcor
die not credit the money on
the book , and the next
day on baing acquitted of the chano ; , the
money taken from him was not returned.
In fact , ho charges Officer O'Brian with
lobbing him of $8. The mayor and
police committee are Investigating the mat-
tor. The oilicorthus charged , claims that
in passing a saloon ho hoard a little rum
pus and the keeper was trying to got
Burdick out , and not being able to do so
called on the oflicor , who tried to persuade -
suado Burdick to 90 homo , but the latter
becoming abusive and being drunk , ho
took him by the collar and run him in.
O'Brien avows that ho searched Burdick
in th9 presence of two witnesses , and
that nofluchmonoy was found on him. The
olllcor loft on the jail register the
names of the witnesses who would testify
that the .man was drunk , and that Mar
shal Guanolla did not subpoena thorn ,
and did not notify him when the trial waste
to come off , so that there were no prose-
eating witnesses on hand aud the latter
WAS discharged. Ho then made a kick
about the money which ho claimed ho
had , Oflicor O'Brien save that in ttio
saloon where ho arrested him Burdick
was trying to stand the barkeeper off for
a glass of beer , promising that bo would
pay for it the next day , by which if true ,
tt doea not appear that ho had any money ,
Officer O'Brien has filed an informa
tion cliarging Burdick with per
jury and ays ho won't
the whole matter cleared up in every
particular , and let the real blatno fall
where it will.
Another follow named Callahan says
ho was also a victim , Ho claims that hu
had 816. and that ho got a few drinkn ,
which made him drunk and ho was ar
rested. This was.Iast Friday night. Ho
does not seem to bo very certain as to
exuotly how much money the officer
found on him , but thinks it must havu
bceu in the neighborhood of $12 or more ,
but when ho was sobered up the next
morning ho found that ha had only 3,31) ) ,
Oflicor O'Brien who arrested him soya' '
that wo * all ho found on him when hu
searched him Callahan claims that
there had been credited on the book
913,30 and that afterwards the "ono"
had boon scratched off. Alntrman Mynt >
tor examined the book and mid tt ap
peared to him that there had been nn
erasure , Oflicor O'Brien says ho simply
put down the amount , which was $3 30 ,
and thalwas | all there was , and no eras
ures or side marks wore made by him.
Of course it would have been foolish ,
oven if O'Brien ' wanted to bo dishonest.
foJ him lolhavo put down $13 30 , and
then charged $3 30 , ai ho might as well
have put down only $3 30 in the fir < t
plnco , as there was no ono else thero.
Ollicer O'Brien has an oxcrllont record ,
and is highly spokon'of , and this incident
following on the heels of the ether , indi
cate * that some ono seems determined to
got him iu trouble if possible.

COBJIMKJtCE OP THE CAMPAIGN
The Political Excitement a Direct
Benefit to Many Trailer * .
The coining presidential campaign is
expected to bring a large trade to manu
facturers of regalia , banners , transparen
cies and so forth. A member of a Fifth
avenue firm said to a Daily No ws repot tor
to-day that ho expected their business to
double after the campaign fairly opened.
Clubs would bo formed everywhere and
would need uniforms small in some
cases , only the capo or hat being used ,
but largo when the country at largo was
uniformed. Then there are clubs which
purchase whole suits , orders for 110 suits
having already boon given out by the
domocratio club hero to bo
finiahod before the state conven
tion at Peoria , July 3. Then
thuro 'aro torches to mako"flaks to pre
pare , pprtnits of flio candidates to have
in readiness , and hundreds of ether matters -
tors that give work to the toiling masses ,
and which only come with a national
campaign. The artist is by no moans
neglected , and sometimes as high as $2-
000 is paid for a portrait banner to hang
across the stroota and inspire the popu
lace. The sign painter nails the work
with delight , and a member of this craft
raid yesterday that ono third of his prof
its during the summer mouths would bo
from the campaign work. Ho is an ex
ception , however , as the bulk of the
work is generally done by him. Other
pontons will also bo bonofittod in a more

fice holders will auffur in an equal man-

Chicago No\v .
The trapio death of Gen. Abe Btiford ,
of Kentucky , recalls n story ho told dur
ing his last visit to Chicago. "I have
Massed through many trying and perilous
scenes , " ho e.iid to a natty of friends ,
"but never felt so near death's door as at
Springfield , III. , just after the war. To
begin with , 1 had a nurow escape during
our fighting in Cioorgm. Our forces were
encamped with the Union troops in our
front. The soniry line were thrown out
as usual , Ono day 1 passed through the
lines to make some observations at a dis
tant point. I was unattended but mount
ed upon a powerful horso.
During my absence the Union forces
drove back our lines nnd occupied the
snmo ground with their own pickets ,
This was unknown to mo , aud 1 was sur
prised and alarmed on my return to bn
ImuUod by a Union soldier. I attempt
ed to ride on , The soldier tried to stop
my horse with his bayonet. Drawing my
revolver 1 fired at him , and rode to camp
without waiting to BOO the effect of the
shot. The w r wont on and finally ended.
Wo surrendered to the superior forces of
the Union side , and I wont homo. Soon
afterward I wont to Springfield to got
some hursos which I had loft iu clmrgo
of Willis llonfrow. On the day of my
arrival a largo number of Union soldiers
wore mustered out of the service. They ,
literally swarmed into the hotel \ \ hero 1
Pretty soon 1 discovered they were
eyeing mo very closely. The more they
did so the more excited they became.
Their excitement made mo nervous , and
not a little frightened when 1 relloctod
that i wns alone , without friends , and in
the midst of soldiers just from the scones
of conflict that had aroused all their bit *
tornoss toward the South. As nn oflicor
in the confederate army , I felt that I
would botr no small share of their ha-
trod. This thought frightened mo be
yond measure. For the first time in my
life I was really afraid , because I believed -
liovod that if the soldiers became
aroused there would bo no escape for
mo. The landlord came over and urged
mo to conceal before an outbreak oc
Although terribly scared , I had no
thought of showing the white feather.
I merely wont up to my room , secured
my revolver and came back to my seat ,
watching the crowd over the paper that
I pretended to road. After awhile a
man wearing a corporal's uniform came
in. Several of the aoldiors ran to him
in an excited manner. I could not hoar
what was said , but I know I was the sub
ject of the talk. The corporal wont tov
the hotel register , looked at my name
name nnd then came toward mo. Behind
him were several of the men. A acoro of
them were eagerly watching the scouo
from the other aide of the room. The
landlord with blanched face , stood behind -
hind thi counter , and 1 could BOO ho was
frozen with terror. As the corporal nnd
his comrades came toward mo , my hair
literally stood on end. I could fool the
blood leave my faco. With all my pow
er of self control I * could not conceal my
agitation. I felt that after going through
the perils of war I was to die at the
hands of a mob. No man can portrav
his feelings at ouch a timo. Though
great strength was demanded , I was so
weak I could hardly stand. When the
corporal approached mo ho asked if I wae
Gen. Buford. With a f.ioblo voioo I told
him that 1 was.
"Do you remember the Union soldier
you wliot when breaking though tlin
Union lines in Georgia ? " ho askod.
"I do , " was my reply.
"I am that man , said the soldier ,
"and I want to thank you for merely
wounding my arm. " The man hold out
his hand. 1 never was so glad to shako
a hand in my lifo. The peril I had sup
posed I was in had caused great beads of
sweat to cover ray faco. As 1 took his
hand I sank exhausted in a chair. I
looked upon the corporal as my savior.
When ho grasped my hand I felt that I
had gouo irom hell to heaven. The ether
soldiers crowded around. It seems they
were only excited bocauno a late enemy
was thoro. Before I left wo all drank to
our common country nnd agreed to for
got that wo 1'iad boon enemies. I think
that is thoim'iflt thrilling personal exper
ience I-orCr l d. "
