There have been many bold, fear

reckless city, bnt none of them have
nrpaeaed in doing the btantilal bnt
daogerous Ethel Moore. The career

flashing meteor shs swept in glorious
array from the White-House to the
Capitol, and in her triumphant march
she has whirled into her train otllcials
who have stood before their country
as patterns cf morality and honesty.
As to what ber name really is there
ia no way of teHing. 8he derives the
name of Moore from a Captain Moore,
a married man, long since dead. The
fascinating Ethel broke Mrs. Mcore's
heart, but a trilling circumstance such
as the mystery of a Uithlol wife was
nothing to a woman of Ethel Moore's
stamp. Notwithstanding the fact that
the fair Ethel has been ejected from
hotel after hotel and boarding-house
for non-payment of her bills, she has
continued to flourish hereabouts for
yar, anii aouDtlesa will so continue
iur years in come.
It has always been the practice of
mis lovuiy creature to drive np to
notel or boirding-houge in a showy
carrlago in order that she might make
an impression upon the proprietors.
Many a time has she walked away
from amh Dlaces. after ha vino An!nvAl

whom the Insidious Ethel left to hold

There are so many others that it would

magnlncentbnilding on Twelfth street.
N. W., called The Belmont. It was
tarnished in an elegant manner
wrongnoai at a coat of over $7000.
Miss Moore went to the owner and
made a proposition to rent the place
famished. She gave, among others,
Uen. Logan as reference. Uen. Logan
was not in Washington at that time,

was hired for the occasion, and the
conpe ia which me lady rode was, as
strange as it may seom to the innocent
deniaend of the fiery, untamed West
no other than the White-House coupe
itself. This coupe was furnished Mrs.
Moore by Atchison, who is now, and
has been for the part fourUwn years,
the door-kespor of the Executive
Mansion. Tuo lady rented the Bel.
mont, sud Atchisou went her securi
ty, and it soon became known that
Atchison was her partner in the
benefits. Atchison has a wife, and
the Masons muted to Mrs. Moore thut
it was strange and improper, to
say the leaat, that the relations of
even Usiness partners should exist
between Atchison and Mrs. Moore
withont the knowledge of Mrs. Atch
ison. 80 Mrs. Mojre got up a dinner
patty awl invited Mrs. Atchison, who
attended. The first opportunity that
presented itself Mrs. Moore took ad
vantage to show Mrs. AtchWon
through the spacious house, and she
declarej to Mrs. Atchison tnat she
owned every stick of furniture in the
place, while the fact was she did not
own a lit of it, ud was not even pav.

for the time thought thnt Mrs. Moore
really was a woman of come conse

Mrs. Mooro reigned as the lady of the
Belmont, the White-House coupe,
manned by a Whitu-Houee driver,
frequently slooj at the doir f thn
Belmont, at the pleasure and disposal
cf Mrs. Moore. The Whiie-Houne
conservatory was stripped of its
choice t fbwers to adorn the boudoir
of the landlady f the Belmont, and
everything was lovely between Door
keeper Atchison and the pretty Eihel.
All this time Mra. Moo.e was plung
ing deeper and deeper into debt, right
and left, as it was an easy matter to
close the eyes of liverymen and
tradesmen when the lady mentioned
the alleged fact that ahe was the pro
prietress of the elegant and fajhion
Under the Belmont there is a cafe,
and Atchison fitted this out in gor
geous style for Mrs. Moore. Hand
some silverware and all of the other
paraphernalia of a showy and mign.il
cent effa were furnished, and they
were havicg a powerful time, as the
darkies say. Among the prominent
people boarding at the lielmont was
Congressman John J. O'Meil cf Mis

Louis. Mr. O'Neil, being a gentle
man of good rature and kind disposi

For you mast know that bills began
to pour in on ?the queenly land
lady of the Belmont, and when
they were unsatisfied bsr creditors
became import a nuts to a most annoy
ing degree. Bent was not naid. and
there were countless other items of in
debtedness that were neglected, and,
to make matters worse, the past his
tory of the ladr who. although twit a
mother, was no wife or widow, began
to assert itself with a pertinacity that
woum nave crusneu a less brazen
woman to earth times over. In the
course ot events the Masons, in order
to get rid of Mrs. Moore, locked np
and denied anybody admission to the
caie. 1 ne Masons even paid the board
bills of the guests at other places in
order to bold them until somebody
else than Mrs. Moore could be placed
in charge of the establishment Then
it was that

company, but when the detectives of
the company ran down her history in
Waahingtoa they found that she had
never owned any diamonds, although
she had promised several boarding
bouse keepers to sell her sparklers to
raise money to pay her overdue bills.
They all testified, however, that they
never saw the diamonds or the money
either. Ethel recently came near en
ticing a man into a niarriaee on hla
supposed death.bed, her object being
to gtt the benefit of a pension that was
coming to him. The man recovered,
and didn't marry Ethel, either.

of Ueorgetown, owed her $000, which

markable story about James Henry

claration of Independence, who died
in New York city tome two weeks
sgo in abject wretchedness, a man
who np to thirty years ago was well
known in Botton in journalistic cir
cles aa a financial critic cf more than
aveiage ability, and a financial report
er of uncommon keenness. On the
street he was known as one cf the
most miserly, unscrupulous and
grasping of usurious money-lenders.
Ilia name was James Henry Paine.
Ha was born in Boston in 1812 and
was educated in the public schools,
and in 1829 he began business for
himself and soon became musical and
financial reporter for the 1'oit. and
some years later was employed by the

father's estate and beuan his hnsi naaa
of loaning money on the street at
high rates cf interest. His hantt.
even at tbis time, were miserly in the
extreme, and his personal appearance
was repulsive Because 01 rilfl slovenly
drees and person. He gained on tha
street an unenviable notoriety for his
loaning money on stocks and then
beating the stocks through the col
umns cf the paper on which he was
employed. This naturally led to his
osa ci employment aa a financial
writer and his personal habits ha.
came more disgusting, while his
OBEID FOB MOUSY
increased. In the latter part of 1854,
o-ving to a questional le financial trans
action, Boston became tco hot for him
and he departed for New York. His
bagase was an old wooden, hair-rnv.
ered trunk, into which he packed all
nis eaitniy possessions, ills brother,
the late Robert Treat Paine, fre orient .
ly taid that he bad no doubt that his
brother James carried awav in that
otd trunk not leas than $00,C00 or
$300,000 in good securities, mostly
bonds. He was next accidentally mtt
in New York the executor of an estate
which he had defrauded. He was ar
rested and taken to the Tombs, where.
after some parleying, Paine piomiaed
if he might be released, to make good
the amount of the stocks and other
property which belonged to the estate.
The extcutor went with him to a large
brown stone-front house, where they
were admitted withont quaation. and
on entering a finely furnished room,
Paine asked a man they found there
to Drmg nim bis bonds. The man
complied and brought a large Quan
tity of bonds, which Paine piled on a
iiDie ana counted out to the execntor
fifty-six $10:K) bonds without making
any perceptible diminution of the
pile. Jtle continued to be heard from,
now and then about New York. He
unaiiy became so

that he was arrested as a vagrant and
sent to the island. Some acquaint
ance who knew of his musicalahility
raised a purse of some $30, secured
his release and procured him a pre
sentable suit of clothes. Subsequently
it was known that he hired a room in
canal street, to which no one was ad
mitted, lie grew eo wretched and
sank so low that he was seen in the
street holding his hat. besslnir for
pennies to purchase toad. .After hla
miserable death, on searching the
rags which covered bis person, $.00 or
$300 were secreted in thorn, and thia
was all. And here arises the question,
what had become of his stocks, bonds
and wealth? His brother. Itnhmt
Treat Paine, believed that he was
worth between $1,000,000 and $2.000..

owned a large amount of property.
He was a larae owner in tha Chiraon
