SYNOPSIS OF PREVIOUS CHAPTERS.
Howard Jeffries, banker's son, under
the evil influence of Robert Underwood,
fellow-student at Yale, leads a life of
dissipation, marries the daughter of a
gambler who died In prison, and is dis
owned bv his father. Forced to leave
college, he tried to get work and fails.
His wife, Annie, is straight as a die, and
has a heart of gold. A former college
chum makes a business proposition to
Howard which requires $2,000 cash, and
Howard is broke. Robert Underwood,
who made love to Annie in his col
lege days and was repulsed, and was
once engaged to Howard's stepmother.
Alicia, is a welcome visitor at the Jef -
ries home. Underwood has apartments
in the Astruria, an exclusive apartment
i house. Howard recalls a $250 loan to
; -w. a
Underwood that remains unpaid and de-
cides to ask him for the $2,000 he needs.
Mrs. Jeffries, Sr prepares for a great
reception at her home. Mrs. Jeffries,
foolishly encourages a dangerous inti
macy with Underwood which the latter
takes advantage of until he becomes a
sort of social highwayman. Discover
ing his true character, Mrs. Jeffries de
nies him the house.

lawyer of the Henry Clay type He
belonged to that small class of public
men who are independent of all

no other duty than that dictated by
their oath and conscience. A bril

no office in the gift of the nation that
might not have been his for the ask

After serving with honor for some
years on the bench he retired into
private practice, and thereafter his
name became one to conjure with in
the law courts, By sheer power of
his matchless oratory and unanswer
able logic he won case after case for
his clients and it Is a tribute to his
name to record the plain .fact that in
all his career he never championed a

Powerful financial interests had at

"Why, my dear sir, you must have
j seen by the papers what's been going
on in our city of late. The papers
have been full of it Police brutality,
illegal arrests, assaults in station
houses, star-chamber methods that
would disgrace the middle ages. A
state of affairs exists to-day in the
city of New York which is inconceiv
able. Here we are living in a civil

guaranteed by the constitution, yet
citizens, as they walk our streets, are
in greater peril than the inhabitants
of terror-stricken Russia. Take a po
lice official of Capt. Clinton's type.
His only notion of the law is brute
force and the night stick. A bully by
nature, a man of the coarsest instincts
and enormous phjsical strength, he
j loves to play the tyrant. In his pre
cinct he poses as a kind of czar and
fondly imagines he has the powrer to
administer the law itself. By his
brow-beating tactics, intolerable un
der Anglo-Saxon government, he is
turning our police force intoa gang
of ruffians who have the city terror
Btricken. In order to further his polit
ical ambitions he stops at nothing.
He lets the guilty escape when influ
ence he can't resist is brought to
bear, but in order to keep up his rec
ord with the department he makes ar
rests without the slightest justifica
tion. To secure convictions he manu
factures, with the aid of his detec

council of the city of El Paso, that in
our own name and in that of fellow

we thank him for his inestimable but
not unappreciated labors, and assure
him that well we know that his achieve
