off the viaduct, and operated by George

in the drat; net, and hauled to the
police s'aUon in the patrol wagon.

The resort on Third avenue, which
is operated by Walker under the guise
of rooming house, has been flourish
ing for several mon'hs. Although there
nre only colored girls in the place, the
habitual frequenters are, for the most
I art, whi'e men. When the police
surrounded the joint last night and
made the pinch," not a colored "buck"
was found about the premise". The
leadline was running full blast. An
electric piano was hammering out rag

charmed life, but was caueht with the

Third avenue resort is a connecting
link with the Lincoln club, which has
for years ac'ed as a magnet for hun
dreds of undesirable blacks who have
, hocked to Kor k Island in droves. The
Lincoln club has been a feeder for tee
alleged roomir. house, although it iff
understood that the place has largely
catered to white men.

Quincy, III., Arril in After nine
days of presentation of evidence, the
state yesterday afternoon rested its
case against Ray Pfanschmidt, aged
21. charged with the murder of his
father, mother, sister and Miss Emma
Kaempen, a school teacher who was
boarding in the Pfanschmidt home.
In order to give the attorneys for
the defense ample time to prepare
their case. Judge Williams granted a
day's vacation and the court will not
convene until 9 a. m. Friday.
The defence insists that itg cay-
w ill not take nearly so long a time for
its presentation as did that of tbe
state, and that, by Wednesday of next
week, the matter will be ready for

One of the most dramatic incidents
ia the entire trial was the appearance
as a witness for the state this after
noon of ('. C. Pfanschmidt. the father

He told the jury that it was he who
ordered the bloodhounds so that the
persons guilty of the murder of his
son and family might be traced.
These bloodhounds followed the
tracks to the bunk in the tent of the

suspicion which led to further investi
