FINNETY’S fortune. Ir D-d Not, Turn His Head Nor Cause Him *' to Go Back on His Poor Relations. Pi-an the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Petei Finnerty, the, semi-millionaire, who suddenly at Waukesha last, Tuesday. ., history resembling in many respects tv,: of many other individuals who struck j. , a in the golden and silver regions. ] n:i teen years iigo he yvas doing his best to n ake a poor farm neat- Keokuk, la., pay, l„, t mortgage after mortgage sank his hopes -,ut of sight, and at last he was obliged to to stroraboating. He ran for some .inn as a deck hand on the river, between Keokuk and St. Louis. In 1874 he came 1V,.-4, attracted by the chances of big pay n et the possibility of running across a for *u!ll,. He went to work as a miner ju San Luis Park, yvbere he re r,: mu and ui t 1 tlie Leadville excitement broke ( Then lie crossed the Mosquito Range B and became a jobber on Friar Hill. He . ~,,,,1 two span of mules and was hauling the smelters, when one day he discov ered the “Little Chief.” Taking the Dillon |,rotiiri‘s iu with him they worked the claim until they struck mineral. Almost imme diately the mine was bonded for a few weeks e, a Chicago syndicate, headed by Harwell, who paid $35,000 down, and yvere to pay f idO.OOO more on the date when the bond expired. In the meantime Finnerty and the t),u „;s found that they had let millions slip hv the sale, and they did everything in their power to prevent the Chicago parties from carrying out their share of the contract. Tlie telegraph wires were repeatedly cut 60 .. to prevent communication between the D'iidville and Chicago ends of tho bargain, gad that the sellers might at any rate get as , 11U eh as possible out of the mine, they put a jot of men to work in it, and gophered it for nearly $50,000 worth of mineral. The Cbi capoans appreciated the good thing which they had, and made sure of completing the tale. They sent the $300,000 balance in (turnbacks from Denver by a messenger, who had an escort of six men, headed by the late W. Frank Smith, a pocky Mountain detective. The party ru ie to the end of the Denver and South Park railway, and then took mules across the mountains. They arrived in Leadville ut noon of the day for the payment of the money, and it was counted out to Messrs. Finnerty & Dillons in Tabor Bank, and they parted yvith “Little Chief"’ forever, goon after selling the “Little Chief” Fin lu-rty disappeared from Leadville. At this time Col. JciSh Atkins, of the Rocky Mountain Sews, who yvas his intimate ami confidential friend, says he had deposited there in bank to his credit $lOO,OOO. During the years he had been away from his former home in loyva a brother had lied, leaving a large family dependent upon the product of a badly mortgaged farm. A sister on another farm had also been over taken by a family bereavement, and her financial condition was no better than that of her brother’s wife. Unannounced Peter appeared upon tho scene. The story of his Hidden wealth had not reached the farm heigh borhood in which years before he had struggled a poor, honest, bard-rvorking farmer. Without mak ing known the real purpose of his mission, be under some pretext or other, took the two widows and their children to a neighbor ing city. Here the little ones yvere all dressed 11(1 in tailor-made clothes, the best money could buy, and the other boys and girls each furnished with a suitable gold watch and chain. The astonished children were taken Mck to their mothers, who yvere left at the jest hotel in the city, while Peter went out with the children “for a walk.” Their de light and astonishment knew no bounds, b ext the women folks were decked out in cost ly raiment and given elegant gold watches, fhev protested against the extravagance, u:d with tears in their eyes said all these toe clothes and gold watches were enough, Cut the money they had cost would go far toward wiping out the mortgages on their farms. With a good-natured smile Peter told them to never mind the farms, they would be taken care of in good time. Two •pans of fine horses, with harness and car tiages, yvere next purchased and ordered in front of the hotel, and there inspected by the astonished families. Peter had not yet got through. He next visited a prominent bank and placed $5,000 to the credit of each widow, presenting them with bank books and blank checks. By the time Peter had gone this far he yvas the talk of the city in which this had taken plpce, but the great-hearted Irishman was cot yet through. With their elegant •quipages the entire party set out for their Ijfmer homes, less than twenty miles. Bn the way they halted long enough at the county seat where the mort |ages on then - farms yvere paid off and clear t eds handed over to the overjoyed yvidows, whose rainy eyes and happy hearts spoke buder than words of the most eloquent ora tor. A day or two later Peter left tho neighborhood, and in due time put in an np tearanee at Leadville. He told the story to Col. Atkins as it is hero, enjoining him to make no talk.” This was the bright side of cis adventures after the sale of the Little Chief. There is a dark side also. During Fin nerty’s absence his wife yvas persuaded into tecuring a divorce from him, and she mar hed anothor man. Peter knew this, and bis generous treatment of tho other folks bud in it something of the spirit of Irish re fenge, and it aroused the former wife to Ji ti'm. she brought suit against Peter for Mi.ooO for the maintenance of his three, laughters, aged now respectively 22, I'd, tfi'j hi years. The father used to send for >li*‘ children, who were brought to his Htel when lio visited Keokuk, oul one day the former Mrs. Fin 3"rty and her lawyers swooped down , R on him, and from that time on he was 'ringed to shun lowa, and always remained Finss the river yvlion he visited that sec l"n - Lawyers and detectives yvere after ui everywhere, and tried to make trouble ' him, but he at last, through a Catholic t; ‘J-st, secured a release of tho children for vi.iKii). The children were placed in a semi mi T Davenport, where they were kept •"til six months ago. Then Peter moved •"’in to tho Convent of the Sacred Heart in “• Louis. Finnerty had $200,000 in United States •■'iins deposited in St. Louis, over $lOO,OOO I l ' Uv “ Denver banks, and his ownership of "'hire Now York mine and three-fourths 5 the Frenchman and Belgian may tie F a '• 31 $200,000 more, so that his estate is “"Ou at least a clean $500,000. He had gone ’• T/mis to sell the Neyv York mine, for " '.‘‘■h he had an offer of $lOO,OOO. After lung it ho was going to retire from busi- S'.md five quietly in Denver. But, as i.'. u* not, he would have kept on opera -2 right straight along, for he was always ' ‘"g he would be satisfied when hegota'n -sll"‘t' $lOO,OOO.

When Detectives Are at a Loss Luck Sometimes Comes to Help Them. From the Xctv York .Situ. Ten or twelve years ago, when I was on the detective force of Cincinnati, two or three very shrewd rascals “hung up” the town for three or four weeks in a way which annoyed us not a little. They were chaps known as porch climbers, ami the way they did their business was simply slick. Porch climbing was then in its infancy. A sneak thief might be ready to take advantage of an open door or window on the lower story, but as for ‘‘shinning up” a column to reach a balcony, or using a light ladder to enter a chamber window, no one had ever tried it. The very first job done by the gang re sulted in a haul of $OOO worth of jewelry. Your common thief no sooner lias any plun der in nis hand than he hastens off to the pawnshop to make a raise. This jewelry was not put up, neither were the socond and third hauls. Then we knew that we had to deal with rascals who had come well heeled and were holding on to their stuff or ship ping it to some other city for sale. The first throe robberies were made at the supper hour, when all the family were in the dining room or down stairs. The papers made such an ado about it as to place citizens on their guard and tlie thieves changed their hours. It was in summer and very hot yveather, and all up-stairs windoyvs were open for ventilation. They yvent into three or four houses through second-story yyindows in tlio evening or up to as late as midnight, and cleaned out jewel cases without being seen or heard. Perhaps the boldest feat yvas the sixth job undertaken. There was a small one-story house standing beside ail elegant mansion. The little house was on a twiner. One of tile fellows mounted to the roof, crept along to the larger house and then ascended the tin conductor on the big house to a bath room window. The blinds inside were locked but ho hung to the sill yvith one hand until he could open them yvith the other. People on the street saw him and a policeman called out to know what he was doing. The fellow was then sitting in the windoyv dangling his legs in a careless way and lie replied: “Jim and I do that for exercise every night.” With that he disappeared into the bath room and proceeded to ransack the various rooms on that floor. It seemed that all the family except a daughter were away to a neighbor’s and the young lady had a beuu in the parlor. The servants yvere out on a rear veranda and the rooms were thus at the mercy of the thief. He took his time in making his search and, while he was after money and jewelry first, he did not despise laces, opera glasses and valuable bric-a-brac. He made up a large bundle of stuff, took a cigar which he found on a mantel and was puffing away in the coolest manner when he descended the front stairs. The girl heard him and came out into the hall and asked: “Did you want to see papa?” “Yes* my dear,” was the ready reply; “but he seems to be out. Tell him I called, will you?” “What is the name?” “Wilcox—Judge Wilcox. I brought ray Egyptian curios over for him to look at, but some other night will do as well.” She saw him depart without a thought of how he entered and the robbery was, of course, discovered later on. The detectives were instructed to let everything drop to hunt down these slick fellows' and there was any amount of cursing and jawing over our ill luck. We had every hotel and boarding house under strict scrutiny, but we could turn up no suspicious characters ansyvering to the description of these. The man who sat on the sill of the bath room window was said to have long black whiskers. The one who passed for Judge Wilcox had auburn Burnsides and was an unctuous sort of a fellow. Five hundred men could have been found in a day’s hunt to answer these de scriptions. For many days the post office was watched, strangers were dogged about, depots guarded, and gardens and concert halls looked after, but yve made no arrests. At least every second night there was a fresh robbery and every second day the papers had opportunity to come out with a fresh artlclo and belabor us. We were seem ingly doing all that men could do and our position was truly uncomfortable. The cli max came about in the oddest sort of way. On one of the fashionable thoroughfares lived an old maid —that is, she yvas one of a family, being, if I remember right, the man’s sister. She was pretty well off and always had several hundred dollars in a bureau drawer in her room. She had read about the work of the gang and was in a state of terror for fear the house yvould be visited. One day a brilliant idea occurred to her. She would capture one of the mob. She planned it that one of them would climb up to her corner window by means of the con ductor, enter without disturbing her, as she yvas a sound sleeper, and go for that money. What did she do hut go out and buy a steel trap—something big enough to hold a fox. She got one of the servants to set it for her and tlie open trap was placed in the top bu reau drawer, and the chain led out through the back side and made fast. Two nights passed yvithout another depre dation. We yvero keeping such a sharp lookout that the felloyvs had to bo more fly. On the third night, at exactly a quarter of 13, the old maid was aroused from her deep sleep by a human yell of pain, and she was no sooner on end than she saw that she hail caught her man. He was down on his knees in front of the bureau and both hands were fast in tlie trap. His first yell was his only one. When he found the woman was awake he calmly observed: “Excuse me, but I think I’m in the wrong room. Please don’t make any disturbance about it.” “Who are you?” “A friend of Will’s and yve both came home a little sprung. Won’t you please help me to get rnv hands loose?” There was a >Vill about the house—the man’s own son —but he had not been out that evening, nor was he in the habit of drinking. Without getting out of bed the woman touched an electric button, and within ten minutes the house was aroused and two policemen had the man in charge. The jaws of the trap had caught him about the wrists and he hud suffered a good deal of pain. He was the Judge Wilcox chap, Burnsides, unction and all. When taken to the station his whiskers wore found to be glued on, and he also hail a false wig. When these were removed he stood forth as pert and trim a thief as you would yvish to over haul. He turned out to boa Now Orleans man named Davis, and was only 20 years old. Tho capture of Davis’ partner followed swiftly, and also in a curious wav. Asa train yvas aliout ready to leave for the North a spruce young fellow came into the baggage department at tho depot to get his trunk checked. It was there all right, but he got into a jangle yvith tho expressman about the charge for bringing it down and tho depot officer finally arrested both. On the yvay to tho station too young fellow tried to bribe tho officer and that settled him. We went for the trunk and when it was opened overy dollar’s worth of property which had been stolen yvas found therein. If there yvas a third man in the party, which some of us believed, ho saved his bacon and got out some other way. In tho baggage of tlie second mail, whom wo never identified, were three different yvigs and whiskers to match. Both had boon in disguise when abroad and it yvas little wonder we could not spot the right men. Both are still in prison or have not been at liberty over a year.

It being as palatable as milk, and tho most valuable remedy kuown for the treatment of consumption, scrofula and bronchitis, general debility, wasting diseases of children, chronic coughs and colds, has roused physicians in all parts of the world to use it.

Men Are Influenced to Bet Again:.t Their Bettor Judgment. “I often bet against my judgment,” sad a prominent bettor on horse races to a Mail and Express reporter yest r.lay at tiie Hoff man House. He mused awhile and thui added: ”1 know it seems a paradox, but betting on horses is very queer. I went out to the races the other day fully resolved to stake my money on the horse that won A friend of mine who lost $lB,OOO during the last few weeks happened along and asked me what horse I intended to bet on. I replied Sea Foam. ‘That name doesn't sound well, and a derrick couldn't pull me to back that horse,’ he said emphatically, and he strolled on. That put me to thinking and I changed my mind and selected a losing horse. There is not one man in a hundred that goes to the races to bet who has a mind of his own. A straw will change the ninety-nine. Names have a great deal to do with betting on horses. Sea Foam is not a good name; it sounds shoddy. But Hindoo, Hildebrand, Hogarth, and names of tlias kind influence betting. 1 will not bet on a shoddy-named horse. 1 pretend that I am never influenced by tips, so called, Imt I am: 1 can’t help it. Now the judgment of that man who said ho would not bet on .Sea Foam I had the greatest confidence in, although ho lists lost a great deal of money trusting his own opinion. You see, men who bet catch at straws and are as variable as the wind. The successful plungers are men who trust solely on their own judgment and bet that way through thick and thin. It is all stulY to say that betting on horses is luck. Some times it may be pure luck with the man who doesn't know anything about horses, but tho majority of those who bet think they know all about the equine race, although, as I. said, they can be influenced easily.” A Russian Blasphemy Case. Odessa Dispatch to the London Daily News. I was present yesterday in the Appellate Court here when an appeal was heard from a Russian peasant named Krzyzanovski against the sentence of six months’ im prisonment adjudged him by the Kamenetz- Podolsk Tribunal for blasphemy. The ap pellant’s offense was this ; Tired and weary after a long day’s labor in the harvest field last year, ho entered the village tavern and drank a glass of vodka. After this appe tizer he was supplied with a small meat roll, called in Russian “pirog.” The peasant found the “pirog” such excellent eating that he exclaimed: “I would rather kiss the girl who made this pirog than the Icon!” The latter is the sacred picture never absent from any Russian habitation, before which it is usual for visitors to uncover and cross themselves. The peasant’s exclamation was highly complimentary to the cook of the tavern but the pal ish priest, to whom it was reported, heard and judged it in a different; light. Hence the prosecution and sentence. Tlie peasant whom I saw enter the box and devoutly cross himself before the “Icon” in court, was a middie-aged jovial, and good tempered looking man, who apiieared much relieved by the court reducing the original sentence to cine month’s arrest.
