i MAN HUNTING i
? ? t
t By Walter II. Farlelgh |
T?o English government had boon
annealed io by Russia to make Eng
land too lit)t to 1: >ld the nihilists who
wore hutching pi ts against t?o Iii"?1 of
the oznr, nnd Detective Fruzor hud
been employed to tube the preliminary
steps, lie Tvr.is t<> locate the "couter"
nnd spot the Individuals comprising It.
und when all uns r ndy ho would call
for assistance and draw a full net.
Fruzor was the right man in the right
place, lie was a human bloodhound
by ir.stiuct. Ho was without mercy
or pity lor a criminal. lie was ambi
tious, zoolouu ami untiring. It' any
public olile r in London could locate
t?o bloodthirsty theorists who wore
causing the czar 80 much anxiety, It
was I'razer. Ho was a man of won
derful intuition, and ho was trained in
the art of ruining down shadows till
be found thorn, flesh nnd blood.
The govemmont did not let It be
come publicly known that It was mak
ing a move against tin" refugee con
spirators, and Frazer took care that
no one should know of his mission. Ho
wont on a still hunt for three months,
nnd during that time he covered every
district In London and became famil
iar with every suburb. Luck and In
tuition guided htm aright. Out? night
ho called in the aid of the police, and
made a descent on a house, bagging
eight of the men ho wanted. The pa
pers did not call thorn nihilists, but
counterfeiters, for the papers wore not
told of the bombs, Infernal indchlncs
nnd treasonable literature captured
There were ten nihilists In the group,
nnd Frazer had seemed but eight of
them. The eight were given up to
Kussin to become Siberian exiles, but
the other two were left behind to
avenge them. That they would seek
his death Frazer fully realized ami
prepared himself for the struggle. If
they had to do with n crafty, nggres
slve man who knew no fear, be bad to
do with two cunning, vindictive men
who bad sworn to take his lifo and
would dare everything to accomplish
their object. Their Identity was un
known to him, as they had been out
of the country while be v. as working
up bis case, while It was moro than
probable that they know him by sight.
They also had the advantage of hav
ing friends among the criminal classes
who would aid them in various ways.
Having concluded his labors for the
English government, the English gov
ernment wanted not hing more of De
tective Frazer. Were it known that ho
bad received orders from the cabinet
there was no lolling what public build
ing might be blown up in revenge. An
Infernal machine In tho house of par
liament or a bomb thrown through n
window of Somerset House would
awaken nil England In an hour, nnd
questions might bo asked that the gov
ernment would flud it embarrassing to
While England and Russia havo long
been on tho most friendly terms, there
nre plenty of Englishmen, and many
of them people of Influence, who sym
pathize with the struggle for freedom
In Russia nnd argue that the czar's ob
stinacy has driven his subjects to
adopt extreme measures. The govern
ment would have boon glad to hoar
that Frazer was going off to Australia
or America for a long vacation, nnd it
SO hinted, but ho refused to go. Ho
knew he had been marked down by the
two nihilists, and pride prevented him
from running away. While they hunt
ed for him he would hunt for them. It
should be n battle to the death.
He mode an immediate move, and
perbaps It was with a feeling of ex
ultation that he discovered that the
enemy was Just as prompt. He was
In u low dnncchouse In disguise when
tho point of u knife thrust at his heart
was buried in the moinorandum book
in his pocket, and the would bo assas
sin got away. Frazer was not Injured,
but his nerves were a bit shaken. In
leaving tho street behind him a brick,
dropped from a third story window,
missed his head by an inch. Tho next
day he called other officers to his aid
and raided a house of doubtful charac
ter, but or all the persons pulled In
none was detained beyond a day.
From that day on, for months and
months, Frazer was hunting over Lon
don. He was never Frazer as his com
rades knew him. Ho bad a dozen dif
ferent disguises, and If he was a "toft"
one day ho was a costermonger tho
next. Here nnd tbero he picked up a
clew until it came to pass that he
knew tho lodgings of his foes and
would have recognized their foces on
the street. Then they suddenly dis
appeared, nnd within n week they hnd
taken n leaf out of his book nnd ndopt
ed disguises. A seeming mendicant nc
costed him one day nnd sought to slab
him In tho back. As he walked the
?trccts one night n bullet whizzed by
his bend. A box was left at his lodg
ings which proved to be an infernal
machine, mid In the crowd at tho en
trance of a theater an attempt was
made to assassinate him.
It was a game of lifo and death
well played, but though the detoctlvo
realized that the odds wore against
him ho woidd not give up. He shifted
his lodgings, bad the press announce
that he had loft England nnd went into
the slums ns an evangelist. After two
weeks he spotted one of his men, but
before ho could make a move ho was
assaulted nnd laid up for a fortnight.
He was traced to his new lodgings,
nnd a bomb was used to blow out tho
front of the house.
He was determined to give the nihil

Ists uo rTPt until ho had them Lu limbo,

appeared ami solemn oaths were taken
to run Fr?ser to ins death before car
rying out any other work, lie was
warned by anonymous letters of what
was bel?g done and what was Inevita
ble unless he drew off, but each new
development only made him the more
determined, lie felt now that it WttS a
losing game on his side, but he woidd
continue to play it to the end.
in four months Frosser shifted his
lodgings seven times. During tho sumo
time he shot and wounded two men
who had sought to corner him, and ho
arrested eight or ten suspicions char
acters. A man who had entered his
lodgings at midnight was almost killed
by a blow from a club, and another,
who was surprised In the net of throw
ing a bomb through the window, was
flung into tho gutter and had his leg
broken. At his last shift of lodgings
Fra/.er moved clear across London and
assumed the disguise of a tramp. tFor
a week he heard nothing from his foes,
but If they had dropped him ho had
not done with them. Ho had subordi
nates who woro picking up threads for
him as he rested. ?llO afternoon, as
he sot in a small pork after having so
llclted alms In bis disguise, a middle
aged man o? the dress and bearing of
a clergyman turned in from the street
and sat down beside him. At first the
detective rose up In nn excited way. as
If to dee; then he sat down and seemed
perfectly helpless. His face grew pale,
his eye;; dilated, Olid, though be made
nn effort to speak, his words sunk In
his Ihr. I It.
All this was witness d by two other
Strollers In the vicinity. A lUU'KOgirl
who was v.h cling n child Up and
doWU tho walk said that h'.s bps were
blue and his chlu quivering. She heard
the hupp sed clergyman address him
several times, but there was 110 an
swer. The son was shining, the peo
ple about him were laughing, und it
was a summer's day, but the disguised
detective shook and shuddered, it
could only bo said afterward that the
chill of death was upon him and that
his nervous system had hern suddenly
upset by the unexpected nppearonco of
one of his foes.
By nnd by tho clergyman went away
und' left I'ruv.er sittin-.t there bolt up
right, his hands clasped and his eyes
staring lido vacancy. It was ten min
ute* before a policeman came along
and had his attention attracted by tho
pallor of tho man's face. lie laid his
hand on tho tramp's shoulder and
asked him if he were ill, and the body
toppled over sideways on the bench.
The disguised Frnzor bad been stab
bed to the hear! by a small dagger In
the hands of the clergyman, and the
man who had been marked down had
been removed at last. What was called
"tho pnrk mystery" created n good
deal of talk and wonder, nnd it was
announced ihnl I ho best talent of Scot
land Yard had been put on the case.
No arrests were over made, however,
and to this day U is a mystery to tho
English public why the murder should
have been committed.
