At times, it is said, his condition is

has been brought about by one (ad

The car er of Mgr. Capel has
been a particularly brilliant one. He
wai one of the foremost churchmen
in EtiK and and exceedingly popu'ar
in Eoirlish society, of which he was a
difltitiKuisbed ornament. To a mag'

task of converting to his filth peop e

mission of his life, aul he etuceuded

and wai warmly welcomed every'

his way, but it wa noted with eomo
concern, even in his early ilaya, that

and he succeeded almost as well as
he did in England. Among those who
succumbed to his personal magnetism
and forcible loglo was Col. George

Ever since his arrival in this coun
try, Mgr. Capel has boon almost
continuously the guest of die
tinguiehed people in diflerent parts of
the country. To taelr sorrow they
had noticed the fact that his potations
became more frequent ns lime went
on, and finally it attracted the atten
tion of the hi'e Cardinal McUloskey.
The cardinal impended him. and took
away from him his prleetiy fuuet'ons.
That was abiut a ear ajjo, and from
that time fonrtrJa cloud aeemed to
hang over the (ortunea of the dis
tinguished divine. It lowered and
completely envelopad him when he
appeared in nn intoxicated condition
at tin famous diunor of the police
captains at Delmonico's ehurtly after.
After that dinner some of the gucs:s,
with a poor idea of what constituted
practical jpking, brought Mgr.
Capel to the res dance of a lady who
had not the entree to fathioiiable
sotioty, and spent some time in social
enjoyment, ilow long he would have
ataid ia a matter of conjecture, but a
servant gill who had not the highest
regard (or her mietre.P, called him out
in the hallway and whispered to him
that the manbion was no place for
Catholio clergymen. Thoroughly
frightened at the dileina in whi h he
was placed, he left the house and ie
warded the servant girl afterward for
her kindly service. The affair cime
to the ears ot the late Cardinal Mc
Cloekfy, and he, it is said, advised
him to leave New Yoik at his earliest
He did leave, but society had shut
Its dcors npon him before that event.
This was not the result of bis intern
perance, but f r a graver offense.
Abuse of hospitality wis urged agaioat
bim. It was charged that he had not
kept his word in returning laigs sums
of laouey he hal borrowed, and, most
aerious of all, that he tempted and al
most succeeded in persuading two or
three young ladies of an excellent
family whose guest he was, over whom
he exerted an extraordinary iofluence,
to yield up thoir inheritance. Tha
echeme wai detected just as it was a -mcst
commmmateri, and the moneig
nor was shown tha door. Tue atory
soon spread among the elite, and aftor
that he was coldly greeted on all s d. s,
and eventually ottracucil from s jelety.
He wanted the young ladies' foi tunes
to pay his Utbia iu England and to

had an absorbing ln'erett.

that evening in Checkering Hall, and
should go thence onwa d. A

some man, I reflected, look

expreeeive eyes, a shapely oofe (which
is a gift as rare aa gemoe), dill lii-a, a
decided cleavage of tbe chin, round
cheeks, tipe with eoler, and over all a
shock of brown hair. I met Mgr.
Capel again under pecu'iar circum
stances. It was on a wiDler night
nearly two years ago. Abont mid
night I walked into Capt. Williams's
rolice station.on West Thirtieth etreet.
The sergeant at tbe disk and tbe cap
tain and several policemen in front of
the desk were shaking with sup

had arrested thorn and Mgr. Cupel. It
was a cold night, and the prelate bad

up around his throat, and over that
was tied a silken si a-f. He was inter
viewing tbe two priooners, and in tbe
warmth of the interview he tilted

of his bead. Tbe phi oners were both
fair fpecmens of the toughest clusi
that Capt. Williams and bis men have
to handle. Mgr. Capel lectured the

tie of domestic bappine-s which
teemed to be entirely r roken. The
male prisoner had kicked bia wife at
borne, and had tried to knock lor
down in tbe station bouse, but tbe
monsignor took them in band. He
reconciled the quarrel, overcame tbe
bitter feeling, made the intoxicated
pair ehake bands, and they raptu

amusement of the select party of
spectators. He then obtained their
release and sent them ttammering

San Francisco special to St. Louis
G kit Democrat : Tbe somewhat pro
neunced flutter of excitement caused
by the advent of Mgr. Capel, tbe cele
brated Catholio prleat, to this coast on
a lecturing tour about a yettr ago, ws
augmented to a still greater degree by
bis sudden disappearance a couple of
months later. Everybody wondered
what could have become of him, but
no one could tell. It teemed as though
tbe great churchman had departed
altogether from the haunts of man.
The matter finally dropped into a sort
of innocuous deeuetude, and ceastd to
bother San Francisco churches and
eociuty circles until a comparatively
recent date, when the whispered word
went round that (he Monsignor bad
been behaving very naughtily during
the period of his disappearance.
Careful inquiry on the part of
your correspondent developed the
fact that Mgr. ' Capel, a
few days prior t) bis departure from
this city, encountered upon the s ree:
the attractive wife of an Italian roach
owner rf this Kta e, known as
"OjudI" Gullio Valensin. Having
met the monsignor when quite a
young girl while t aveling through
Europe with her mother, Mrs. Valen
sin was naturally vtry greatly p'.eaeed
to renew her acquaintance with her
old friend. Out uf couittsy, Bhe ex
tended Qtpel an invitation to pay her
mother and herself a visit at the ranch
near Arno, where they weie living.
The monsignor expressed surprise that
Mrs. Valensin and her husband were
not living together, whereupon, nhe
unboeomcd herself, the atory of her
life's trouble, the priest's pious calling
having incurcd her confidence. She
had married her husband at the borne
of his fattier in F.orence, Italy, lie
was then only 21 years of age, while
she was 20 years old, though she made
him believe she was only 18 years old.
BSUOVED TO CALIFORNIA.
A child, a boy named Fio, wis born
to them the firet year. Four years
later ttiey removed to La iiornfa to
set le down on a ranch, which she
secured in exchange for a piece of San
Francisco real estate deeded lo her by
her father several yeara before. Her
husband hid considerable money of
hli own and stocked tbe ranch with a
fine lot of thoroughbred hoi ess and
cattle, besides purchasing several
hundred acres ot land adjoining her
own place. Everything progressed
very pleaamtly for awhile, then she
raid her hutband cruelly treated her
by refusing to recognita her Catholio
iiiclina'ione and consent to ho re
married according to the ritea of that
Church, Their marriage bad beeu
performed by a civil magistrate only
and did cot sititfy her. Finally she
left Valencia on the 1st of August,
ItiSf, and went to r-'nnta Crui, wbi'.e
he came to this city. On the follow
ing month the commenced a suit for
divorce on tbe grounds of cruelty
above dsecribed, which was tried in
May. and decided against her on the
3d of July, 1885. Mhor.ly alter this
she returned to the ranch with her
son and tent (or her parents and ber
brother, Oeorge McCauley, to come
and live with bor. The management
of the ranch was entrusted to an old
Sacramento lawyer, who also made
his heidquar ers at the ranch. Evil
tongues toon connecUd this lawyer's
name with her own, and tent scandal
ous reports to her husband, who was
making ber life a burden with his un
founded charges of infidelity.
A TRQUULBGOMB BUOTHIR.
Her brother, too, was causing her
much trouble on account of hia recent
marriage. After much pers'iasinn she
succeeded in getting her brother to
'eava hia wife and return to his fam
ily, but the did not know how lone he
would nmain c intent that way. Cap

Wben this had been going on ior
tome time McCauley, sr., Father of
Mrs. Valensin, became suspicious of
tbe remarkable intimacy which had
sprung np between bia daughter and
theprust. He wis not sure that any
thing wrong was going on, but be did
not like the look of thing?, and natu
la'ly conceived a dislike for Capel,
which very quickly increaaed into an
abeoibing haired. McCauley was one
oi thoee grnn, Hardy old pioneers,
who are given to explorations outride
the proper limits of the EegU h lan
guage, and on more than one occasion
he pas oeen known to curie uapei to
bia face until he gaeped for breath.
Capel allowed all this contumely and
villificatlon to pass unnoticed.
TBI PATHBa'S SUSPICIONS.
This unexpected mildneis caused
McCauley to become still more suspi-

-that Ca pel's designs extended even be
yond debauchery. The old man was
afraid that theMouigoor was laying bis
p'ana to eecure control of the entire
property. McCauley's friends warned
him that such were Capel's intentions
beyond a doubt, and unle:s tome ef
fective steps we taken to prevent bim
be would eventually become master
cf tbe whole ranch. The priest, eaid
they, clearly prssessel a wonderful in
fluence over Mrs. Valensin's mind
and actione, and wben McCauley
should die, he would not be long in
showing his band, as the old gentle
man's will left the entire estate, rea',
personal and all, to Mr.:1. Valensin, hia
daughter. McCauley thought this
matter over very teriously, and at last
came to tbe conclusion thHt be would
make a new will leaving everything
to bis wife, Catherine. Accordingly
be telegraphed to Sacramento for a
lawyer and a notary, and the neit
everting a ne w will was drawn up and
signed by himeelf in the pres
ence of bis wife, tbe lawyer
and tbe notary. Tbe old man
was very feeble at tbe time, and
quite ill aleo, but as clearheaded as
ever, in spite ol bis 7u year. Mrs.
Valensin and Capel were very eaer lo
learn the contents ol tbe will, and
wben they were informed the follow
ing morning Mrs. Valetstn denounced
the will as a scheme to defraud ber
out of ber rights. Nhe declart d in the
presence of tae lawyer and the notary
that boih she and Capel bad gone out
on tbe veranda the evening previous
wben tie will was being executed,
an o bad witnessed the whole traneao
tion through a crack in tbe blinds of
the window. She saw, the said, her
lather sound asleep in bis chair, and
also eaw the lawyer guide the old
man's hand over the paper in tracing
the signature. Capel supported his
fiiend a statement, but when tbe will
wai proved in Stockton, ehortly after,
it was shown to the c nut's entire rat-
lBfiction that the decument was gen
uine, and that McCauley was iu his
right mind and conscious of what be
did wben he signed it. McCauley
died about July 11th, this j ear, and
the estate, including some valuable
property in Missouri, went to the

The new will was a sonrce of con
stant bickering between Mrs. McCau

to the firmer leaving the ranch and
going to ber own house. Her son,
(jteorge, aleo left and returned to his
wife. This left Mrs. Valenein and
Capel alone in tbe boose, with the
exception of the little boy, but they
ignored appearance and continued on
tne same iiimiliar, if not intimate, re

a great degree, and tbe brother,

Mrs. McCauley, George's wile, re
