dered judgment In favor - of Mrs. Mabel

sisted. - Judge Hostetler held that the policy

ment was entered accordingly.

CHICAGO, Bept. 10. Details of a series
of sensations which are alleged to have
smoldered for months in Cambridge, 111.,
and which may explain ths mysterious
death of John V. Streed, a prominent at
torney and politician who was found life
less at his office door in Cambridge a week
ago with a bullet through his head, wars
revealed here today.
Dr. Byrdt C. Powell, a veterinary sur
geon living In Sandwloh, 111., came to Chi
cago and told a story back of the recent
suicide of his brother, William D. Powell
of Cambridge. The story discloses a chain
of facts connecting ths Powell and Streed
cases with ths virtual murder of a Swedish
domestlo In the home of a wealthy and
prominent man In Cambridge, more than
Ave years ago. She was buried secretly,
without death certificate or Inquest. In
ths opinion of Dr. Powell Attorney Streed
was murdered because Streed knew the
truth behind the woman's death. Streed
got the facts from William D. Powell, who
committed suicide August 28 last, after
William Powell's home had been broken
up and the guilty persons shielded. It Is
alleged, by Influential political friends. Dr.
Powell declares his brother was driven to
his death by a clique In Cambridge.
It Is said Powell went to Cambridge to
live about the time of ths death of the do
mestlo, ths facts of which he learned ac
cidentally. His own domestic life was un
happy. He suspected several men of promi
nence of being too friendly with his wife,
snd enoountered as a result persecution.
which. It Is said, drovs him to suicide.
First stories detrimental to Powell's busi
ness was circulated. Then ths crowd made
It their business to offend him In ths street.

the sheriff would arrest him for carrying
concealed weapons. Men cams to him at

home and to his office, and told him be

Finally cams a climax. Powell awoke
one morning to find "tar and feathers"
written on his door with a nots ordering
him to leave town within four days or
suffer violence at ths hands of a mob.
Then Powell summoned his brother. They
talked all night long, William detailing
the story of his sufferings, of his love for
his wife, ths persecutions and ths threat

Qo after them," replied his adviser.
"You know something of ths death of this
Swedish girl. The men persecuting you

Two detectives arrived In Cambridge as
a result, to work up evidence In reference
to ths death of the domestic. W. D. Powell
took ths evidence to Attorney Streed and
asked him to prosecute ths men. Streed
refused to do it because it Involved some
of his best friends. William D. Powell's
sutclds followed. ' Dr. Powell believes that
Streed and soms of ths suspected men
quarreled and In ths heat of dispute Streed
betrayed knowledge of ths domestlo's
"My brother," said Dr. Powell today,
"was hounded to death by a clique of men
who control everything In ths association
ot law In Cambridge. His knowledge of the
girl's death, passing to Streed, shifted to
the attorney the fatal mark of that 'gangs' '
enmity. If Streed was murdered It is a
simple matter for ths Cambridge authori
ties to figure out who are ths persons In
terested In bringing about his death. But
they have purposely suppressed ths truth,
which. If revealed, may lead to ths dis
covery of Streed's murderer and bring to
tight another murder."
