The Good Work Done by Enos
Bond the Only Colored Offi
cer in Englewood.
Dastard Deeds of Darcey.
For sometime the people of Englewood
have been making complaint to the po
lice department concerning their flow
ers. A reward of $25 was offered a few
days ago and the police department
went to work. It resulted in the arrest
of Willie Burton, a Colored girl about
13, by ^nosBond, the Colored detective!
She would not go to school, but delight
ed in roaming aboj&the j|trej^*tiUlM*C5"v
hours of the day and night, and has
made several tours of the Washington
Park fctables where she had been known
to spend the nighi. Upon returning
from the stable on one occasion she was
very ill and it wab believed that she had
been tampered with. She was finally
prevailed upon to give the names of a
following men and boys, some of whom
are located about Englewood Dan
Greene, Joe Darcey, Mon Alsip, John
Ransom, Wm. Koache, and Jas. Watson,
all of whom were arrested with a num
ber of others. Joe Darcey is the engi
neer at the Washington Park stables.and
it is claimed that he dragged the girl in
to the engine-room where he criminally
assaulted her. The matler, it is said, was
reported at the Englewood police station
about a month ago, but no action taken
until recently Enos Bond was put
on the force. The men were arraigned
before Justice Cadwell who Held them
ovei to the grand jury with bonds rang
ing from $1,000 to $ ,000 It is said that
while one man was on trial he arose and
said:" "Mr. Judge, it may be that you
know your business, but allow me to say
to you that I am a child of God. I am
an active worker in the Salvation Army
I am working to save souls. I was trying
to make a Christian out of the little girl.
I often prayed with her." "Put up
2,000 and tell your story to the grand
jury," said the judge. The girl was sent
to the House ol Good Shepherd last

Godfrey Command^ery No. 5, K. T.,
