congrensinan, yet It" tells of the ways and
the means by which a campaign Is carried

because of unkept promises of reward by
the congressman In the defeat of the can
didate for third election. Through all his
campaigns bis wife, whom he married after

port, la certainly, as the Inscription on the
corner states, "a strange story of a son of
Ham." The dedication note by the author
reads: "To all Americana who deem purity
of rare an all-important element In tha
progress of our beloved country." But with
all its strangeness, the story Is very Inter
esting. Lucy Dunlop, daughter of a very
old and wealthy firm of shippers and bank
ers, marries the manager of the firm, Wal
ter Burton. Juat prior to the marriage
Lucy's uncle discovers that Walter, though
his looks do not show It In the leaat, has
some negro blood in him. This does not,
however, prevent the marriage, aa hla looks,
education and business ability, together
with his polished manners and power to en

ciety in Boston. He haa a dwelling and
property that was his home before his mar
rlage, where he shuts himself up In gloomy,
despondent spells ever an evil spirit that
almost seems to conquer him at times. The
truth Is kept from Lucy, but when discov
(red by the negro offspring, together with
her uncle's death, she goes insane. Walter's
end ia tragical.' The Dunlop name, which
had stood as a firm for agea and seemed al

Drignt, wholesome story, well worth the

SHIELDS ANDBRADY TRIAL
Victor Walker Teatiftea that Police
man Hit Him Without
In county court yesterday Judge Vln
sonhaler began the hearing of Victor B.
Walker'a case again Martin Shields and
John Brady, policemen, charged with as
sault with intent to do great bodily injury.
The action grows out of the Incident of
February 26, when the officers were aent
to 1122 Capitol avenue to arrest Walker for
carrying concealed weapons and are al
leged to have used undue violence in doing
o. Walker waa given a hearing in police
court and fined $4 and costs by Judge
Berka for carrying the weapons aa com
plained of, but takea the assault case Into
county court, where I. J. Dunn acta aa hla
attorney. W. J. Connell and Thomaa Lee
appear for the officers.
On the witness stand Walker testified that
the first Intimation he had of tha presence
of the policemen was when Ehletda grabbed
hla (Walker's) pistol from hla hip pocket
and Inflicted two painful wounda with It,
one on the head and the other on the
side of the face, saying, "Now, d you,
I've got you." Witness did not remember
that Shields carried any club or that Brady
Inflicted any blowa. He said that on the
way to the station Brady said: "Shields,
you did a good Job," and that Shields an
swered: "I'm ordered to bump him off."
Of their earlier relations. Walker said
that Shields had arrested three girls who
were drinking beer at a table In his place
one night last October and that he had
complained to the chief about It. He did
not know whether the chief had ever men
tioned the complaint to Shields, but later
when be went to speak to the officer about
It, Shields had declined to talk to him.
whereupon he bad aald: "You're nothing
but a policeman and a policeman ain't none
too good to talk to." Witness said Shield's
answer to this was: "Now, d you, don't
you monkey with me or I'll fix you." This
was, the witness said, their last conversa
tion until the trouble now complained of.
