The Davenport Tribune of yester
day morning tells the following story
of crime and cruelty:
For about a year and a half there
has been a fellow in town known as
Anton Yon Waltev who has been in
numerous shady transactions, and
who has been under the- eyes of the
police for some tiaie. He came from
no one knew where, and hadn't been
here long before 1 e married a respec
table girl named Mary Schrocder,
whose parents li' e on West Second
It wasn't a great while ago that he
got into a scrape by selling mortg
aged property. To" raise money to
keep him out of j lil his wife permit
ted him to mortg:.ge all her furni
ture and bedding, and in payment
thereof she was obliged to have him
arrested for abusing her.
Early yesterday morning a woman
with three childrc n got off a train
and immediately -vent to the police
station. She sabi that Yon Walter's
true name is Ante n Mojeska and that
she was married to him in Posen,
Germany, 1 1 years ago, and that soon
after they came t this county, set
tling in" La-uont, 111. About two
years ago she was abandoned by her
An Inhunao Ievil.
She said she ha I been supporting
her family by doing washing, etc.,
and was getting along all right, with
ome money aliea 1 when he returned
a few weeks ago. He said he was in
business in Dctro t and wanted her
and the children to go back with him. j
1 he lurmture was sold and all the
funds turned over to the husband.
He purchased tickets for Detroit,
placed his family aboard the train
and skipped out." She stopped off at
me next station penniless, reported
the affair to the authorities and had
just succeeded in locating her worth
less husband. She looks like a re
spectable, hard working woman, and
the children, the eldest of whom is
a girl of 12 years old, are very bright
and nice appearii g.
The Police Have Him.
As the police h vc had no use for
Von Walter for some time, they were
only too rlad to arrest him on a
charge that will land him in the pen
itentiary. He was locked up in the
county jail. Wile No. 1 is entirely
without funds, a:id the county will
have to take care of her and her chil
dren until aftci the trial. She is
willing to work if she can find any
thing to do. and after her husband is
safe in prison, wants to go back to
Lamont. Wife Xo. 2 has been robbed
of what little property she had when
she was married and will have to re
turn to her parents, as she is soon to
become a mother. Both women are
filled with rage at their treatment.
The miserable devil that caused their
woe doesn't atteupt to deny his guilt.
