I TRUTH. 9
3 Ml ... imn ho was living under his as-
I thl3 name Under that namo-
II SUS by The way, was his mother's
3 II whMnn nume-he not only entered tne
'e f 1 ma'dp but married Miss Martha
e II Price the daughter of a well known
lot J, rl family. Three children were
r 1 ?ho result Stho union, the son Hiram
8 1 being an artillery captain in the army
' I tho second, a daughter, dead, and the
' I hird a daughter, being the wife of
i B En French Duke of Rochefocauld.
i B About the time of his election tho
H details of his early life began to be-
y M rome public property. An intense son-
J B sXn was promised, but ho had tho
f B matter covered up. Through tho In-
, m Huence of his law partner, poor Sa-
9 die Hoon, the victim of his wiles, was
H induced to secure a divorce; liis mar-
1 H riago with Miss Price, which was a
i H bluamotts one, was secretly legalized
H through his Influence with Judge Up-
I H ton of tho state circuit court, ana
H Judge Hamilton of the county court
1 H conveniently arranged for the legaliz-
1 H ing of his change of name.
IH Ho was a gay old boy about those
H times, too. Ho fell in love with his
1 K last wife's sister and endeavored to
! Bj persuade her not to marry' the man
f to whom sho was engaged. Ho wrote
BJ her several endearlns letters declar-
H ing against her uniting with Mr. Pot
ter, her affianced, and these letters
H were turned over to Potter, who pub
BJ llshed tho entire bunch some years
Be afterward In fac simile. Of course
l BJ Mitchell howled that it was persecu-
H tlon, although a number of lcputablo
Bg citizens fathered tho action and dared
BJ him In print to establish a libel suit
BJ In 1878 Mitchell was defeated for
BJ the senate by tho fact that tho Demo
B crats controlled tho legislature Four
B years later he tried again, but elgh-
B teen Republicans refused to voto for
B him, and J. N. Dolph was chosen In
B 18S5 and in 1891 ho was successful,
but In 1897 ho was given tho throw
B down because of his attitude in favor
H of silver. For four years ho side
i stepped, obtained his sustenance at
Ef cheap eating houses and wearing
M shabby clothes, but luck came to him
f J In 1901 on tho last night of tho scs
II slon of tho legislature, when there
II was a deadlock. The joint session
I elected him.
(J A political storm started that has
M been blowing over since. Ho was

He surveys in Oregon and the legal
machinery of tho general government
Is working against him. At this writ-
ing It looks as if, despite his high po-
sltion, ho will be convicted.
Dj And it is fair to presume that if ho
has a chance, this wife deserter, this
bigamist, this hoary-headed old roue,
will voto against Senator Smoot.
I SOMETHING WRONG HERE.
Truth directs tho attention of tho
II city government to a state of affairs
II that should not exist. Police officers,
1 in collecting fines for tho running oi
Ij slot machines, do not give tho often-
K ders receipts. A case In point arose
only a few days ago, when a cigar
dealer and confectioner paid his $18
"no to Detectivo Offlcer Burt. Tho
"no was paid in tho presence of wit
II nesscs and the shop man asked for a
If receipt. Ho was informed that ro
I celpts were not given, but "ho was

As a matter of fact, this slot ma
chine business Is wrong. An argu

of "trade machines." A trade ma
chine Is a machine where you drop
a nickel In tho slot and got a five cent

to keep them.
It Is Intimated that some prosecu

right and proper. Abolish tho slot

gambling house Is righteous alongside
AGAINST A HARD GAME.
,It looks as If the grocorymen who
have decided to abolish tho trading
stamp and all sorts of premiums given
with articles sold, have a hard gamo
against them. Truth Is Informed thai
Cudahy, who makes soap and has a
premium coupon Inside the wrapper;
that tho match companies which In
close a coupon; that tho tobacco con

others have heard of this movement
with a great deal of discontent.

think they can undersoil tho tobacco
trust, let them try It," ho said. "If
they think that Cudahy, Fairbanks an-'

that they will lose some money hero,
let them start something. If they do

financially from any refusal of his to
