"Why tlon't the papers get it right
about the rocky renO being traveled by
the police forceV" asked one of the men
of the star order .yesterday.

about it. I can't tell you , or rather I

gave the force a sharp talking to Mon
day night , but it seemed to do no good.
He urged them to go riglit ahead at
tending to their duties and keeping
their mouths shut. Some of them
grumbled sullenly about this. They
thought that Chief Mullen had had his
say in the papers , and now they were
choked oil from giving the public their
side of the affair. The warning of the
mayor Boomed to have little cITect on
of the force. Thcro was much
stirring up of the old charges , all of
The songs have a good many varia
tions , but there are in reality 'but two
tunes. One is a "Won't go homo till
morning. " The other is the one
heard so frequently on the fair grounds ,
"Let 'or mil , let 'or roll. " To make it
more plain , the causes of dissatisfaction
with the chief cluster about the charge
that lie has indulged too freely in that
which cheers and intoxicates' , and the
charge that he bus been induced to
wink , at the shell games practiced on
suckers during the races.
The most direct charge made openly
is made by J. J. Wright , a man" who
was appointed as special policeman dur
ing the races , and who declares that ho
saw a man , whom he thought was one of
the shell game workers , approach one
of the policemen as though seeking
permission to run the game. This
policeman was heard to toll him that it
couldn't bo done , and that if they tried
it they would bo arrested. Soon after
this Wright says bo paw the man and
Chief Mullen in conversation , and that
a bill of some kind , whether W or $10
he could not say , was passed into the
chief's hatids. Soon after that the shell
games started up and were allowed ta
run. Wright claims that other olllcern
have since said that they got orders
from Chief Mullen to lot the shell game- ;
These two tunes Imvo been sung with
apparent enjoyment by some , and with
numerous variations. It is more than
likely that the charges will bo put into
some formal shape where they can bo
cither proved or disproved. At present
they are being stated in rather loud
whispers. They have reached the cars
of Chief Mullen and his friends , and the
chief hotly says that any fellow making
such u charge will have to prove it. In
his calmer moods ho says the onlj
money which ho received on the fair
grounds was a bet which ho won on out
of the races. At one time while he
stood watching the finish of a heat ,
some ono came to him and told him
shell game was running , and wanted
him to put a stop to it. Ho waited a
minute to see the race finished , and
then went to stop the game , but the
follows had pulled out.
Wright , who claims to have been an
eye witness to the paying of the money
is frank to admit that he docs not like
Chief Mullen. Ho says that ho scrvet
seven days as special policeman , ant
Million only put in his time as six days
thereby wronging him out of a dny'i
wages , a little over ? 2. Ho is particu
larljr wroth ever this , because Muller
was in no sense a gainer , the city belli j :
only that much ahead. Ho declared
then , and declares-now that lie will ge *
even with Mullen.
Ono member of the force , who seems t <
bo a loader the charges against Mullen
has prepared a list of questions whicl
ho desires the chief to answer. If thej
are formulated into direct charges am
Hied with the proper authorities , in
stead of with the newspapers , they wil
probably got answered. The following
are samples :
"Why wore you off duty from the 2oi\ \
of November until the SOth ? "
"What blackened your eye at tha
"Who was it that assisted you to gel
to the bank corner ? "
"Why did two of your policemen as
slst you to your hotel late at night whei
it was not slippery41" !
"Why did yon not stop the shol
gnmcH on July 4 , 18o" , when you wen
notified by some of your men that thoj
wore playing ? "
"Why did you tell some of your mot
to let the shell men alone and go awa ;
from thorni" '
"Why did they toll some of your moi
that they had the privilege to run , a
they had fixed the chief all right ? "
It is not known whether the chief ha :
got any catechism prepared. A fusiladi

Mr. Shea , representing the syndicate
owning the Pacific house property ,
stated that after many difficulties those
of the shareowncrs who could not Join

bought out by those who wanted to
build , though at a sacrifice to the buyers.
The syndicate could now make n defi
nite proposition to the board of trade or
the citizens. The syndicate would put
up a four story building for a bonus of
$10.000 , or if the Sapp corner would bo
donated , the syndicate would build on
that also , the syndicate in that case to
receive fcl.OOO and the lot , instead of the
$10,000. The syndicate desired an an

The propositions wore discussed at

ho is to commence suit against the

Gleason , for $5,000 damages. This col
lection agency has a peculiar way ol
forcibly punching up folks to pay theii
bills. It is done largely by sending no
tice after notice in envelopes bearing
upon the front the words "bad debts" in
quite prominent letters. Galvin re
ceived a notice that he owed Glcason

denied the justice of the account , say
ing he had already settled it. Ho of
fered to put up a bond of $100 and allow
Gleason to sue him. The bond would

This blood curdling speech was ut
tered by a man who has spent a large
) ortion'of his life among the Indians as
i tribal member , and naturally a
Granger , knowing only this fact about
him , would look for some horrible exhi-
iiition of Indian skill in dealing with
luiman heads , when the speaker had
lully prepared to carry his plan into
execution. But there was no cause for
alarm. It was only a doll'rt head that
lie hold in his hand , and it was only a
| ) air of glass eyes that had dropped out
of their sockets and that ho was ex
pected to get back into place again.
More than this , there was a merry
twinkle in his sharp black eyes as ho
titter the remark , and from his bearing
and volubility it was evident that his
early lite among the Indians had not
developed in him any of those savage
traits which come to the red men by
"This is my business , " ho remanked

story of his life. ' < He was born in Now
York state and when only nine years ol
age had a falling out with his mother :
dug up his savings which ho had buried
in the garden unTlcr a cherry , tree and
made trades for the west. Eventually
he landed at Chicago , which was thcn.ii
small settlement , the headquarters ol
fur traders. He stayed with a French
trader , until one season Big John , the
chief of the Wlnncbugo Indians , came
along with some furs to sell , rcmaininp
six weeks in the settlement. The big
Indian tool ; a shine to the bright lad ,
and invited him to go homo with birr
and live among the Winncbagocs as hit
pappoose. The boy , after taking the
advice of his friends went along witli
the friendly Indian to his home
which was near the present site
of Dubuque. Ho became virtually n
member of the tribe of Winncbagocs
dwelling among them in their tepees
and joining the braves on their huntinp
and lighting expeditions. So charmed
was he with this free life that he cried
like a baby when ho thought the white
soldiers were going to take him awaj
ono timo. He siuy much of Indian war
fare. Later in life , ho was associated
with California Joe , Kit Carton and
other famous characters as a scout , and
among the border settlers in Kansasand
Texas was known as "The Mississippi
Ranger. During tliis period he saw
much Indian fighting and experienced
many hair-breadth escapes quite thrill
ing indeed. For a while , about the time
of the breaking out of the war. ho was
in the northwest where he had dealings
with the Sioux , who wore particular ! }
belligerent and atrocious about thai
period. "Thoy were , " says Mr. Patten
"the worst acting critters that T ovci
see , and they haven't changed much foi
the better since. " It was while in the
northwest , with headquarters at For !
