BOLDLY FACING A DESPERATE ? lOU.
At the time of the great lager beer riots
back In the GO's , Alan l'lnlcerton , then
deputy sheriff of Cook county , found himself
on one occasion In the midst of an angry
mob. who were threatening to set fire to
the city. BeIng In citizen's dress , the de-
tetvo lad not been recognize by the
crowd , but , realizing the danger of tie situ-
aUon and careless of his own safety , he
walked UI to the leader of tIme rioters , a
powerful workman , and In the name of the
law ordered him to desist. The Icader's only
answer was an oath and an attempted blow ,
but before his fist could strike Pinkerton
lied caught him around the neck In an Iron
grasp. Then. by the adroit use of tlo hip-
lock throw , learned In wresting praclce , he
. buried the fellow ten feet through the air ,

CAITUJF Ol EXIIESS AND DANK
I was In the capture of express thieves
and bank robbers that Pinkerton achieved imts
10st remarkable successes. Beginning with
time Mlroney robbery In 1858. where after
mouths of Ierslstent shadowing. he recovered
nearly $ OOO for time Adams h'xprcss company -
pany , ho conducted the work In scores of
similar cases and Was usually successful. Ito
captured time notorious Carbondale bank rob-
bert recovering $35,000. Then came the
great robbery of the Adams gxpress cOlpany
on the New York & New Haven railroad ,
January 6 , 1866 , when a gang of six thIeves
burst open time safe and sccured nearly $700-
000. Alan Pinkerton secured the conviction
of the guIlty men and got back all but a nry
smal portion of the mouoy. The foJowln
year he succeeded In breaking up the formid-
able Heno and Anderson gang , who had for
years been the terror of the west , plundering
trains , robbing stores and blowing open safes
with apparent Impunity. So greatly was pub-
lie indignation aroused Igalnt these desperadoes -
does that after their arrest they were taken
from the jai In New Albany , Ind. , by 100
masked men and hangeJ.
PerhRI's the greatest feat of Allan Pin-
Icerton's career , certainly time one that wi
live longest In history , was hts safely con-
ductng Abraham Lincoln through Dallmore
Washington when the president was to be
Inaugurated In 1861 I had ben discovered
that there was a plot to assassinate I.lncoln
as ho passed through Baltimore . and Alan
Pinkerton \\as charged with time duty or
guarding hll safely from his enemies.
nARELY wom A D1SGUISI.
Alhough In his tme Alan 1Inllerton was
regarded lS one ot the most skilful "shad-
OW3 , " lie rarely resorted to disguises. In
one Instance , though ho went to the length
of shaving off his heavy black beard. This
was when he was investigating a series of
hotel robberies , and he succeeded In maldng
up as a rough workman so successfully that
ho actually stood by and saw the robbers
dig up a quantity of iiamonds and jewelry
burled on time lake front.
As an illustration of Alan Pinkerton's for-
hIlly In expedients may be mentioned the
case of a South Carolina negro murderer
named Joimnson who.e gui was strongly
suspected , but could not be proved. One
morning when Johnson went to his work In
a field he was to plow ho found the ground
spattered with blood. As he moved along the
furrows he came now and then upon little
pools of blood , and when ho wont back to the
stable he was started to find the bloody
Imprint of a human foot on the bar floor.
This continued the next day , when he found
every boo spade rake , ax and other farm
Implement tllt he picked up spattered with
blood. Whichever way he went he found
blood whatever ho touched had blood on I.
and that night the poor wretch , wrought lp
to n frenzy of terror through his superst-
tous fears , and believing that the spirit of
his victim was haunting him , cnt bls throat
from ear to ear. It l needless to state that
Alan Pinkerton was responsible for the
Though EO pitiless a hunter of criminals ,
Mr. Ilnllerton was the first to aid the men
whom , he brought to prison to lead decent
honest lives when their sentences bad ex-
pirod . lie pitied crimninais . never despl'Ed
them . Dozens of burglars and thieves like
WIllIam Forrester and Joseph I'arlsh could
tell of his generous efforts for their reform.
"Hore Is $50 for you , " ho would say ; "try
to make a new start and when this money
Is gone , come to mo for more. " Ho would
speli hours talking to men whose lives had
been bad showing them how they might do
better , and never refused material assistance.

later years tool much pleasure and spent
much of his spare time In literary work.
In .l he produced seventeen books 01 his
thrilling experiences as a detective , the first
one being the story of hIs pursuit and cap-
turo of the express robber , Nathan Maroaey .
Thi case had attained almost national hn-
portlnce , and the book had such a tremnen-
deus sale that ho was encouraged and urged
to write the others. Although he did not
go to the theater very frequent ) he enjoYEd
seeing a play . now and then , but did not
care much for tragedy or heavy pieces , what
pleased hll most being screaming faces ,
which he enjoyed lS keenly lS any one of
tie gods In the gallery. Ho was also pa-
sionately fond ef music and of flowers.
PINKERTON A ' 'II1FTY MAN .
In everything Mr. Ilnllerton hall rare fore-
sight. A few years before he died ho had
his large fermn , containing 360 acres , planted
with perhaps 300,000 larch trees , whence the
name "Larehi farm '
"What In the world do you want to plant
all these trees for , major ? " asked Superln.
tendent Robartsol one day
"I um looking Iheal1 , my boy , " ho an.
swered. "Tho trees won't do 00 any good ,
but In fifteen or twenty years they sybil
be worth $4 or $5 i apiece for railroad
tes , "
Any one who visits Larch farm today , amid
whe Icnows the value of tinmber . wIll see that
the detectives canny Scotch mind hail thus

In hIs lifetime , although very free with his
10ney , never refusing mmppltcamits . whether
worthy or unworthy , amid giving to all public
charities , yet ho managed to lay by a goodly
store and died worth about $350,000.

MH. RUAN'S COMPLAINT.
Attached to this was the following from
James Huon , who draws $1.000 per year from
the county as In erpert accountant :
J. II. Tate , Auditor : 1 would respectfully
cal your attention to the following state of
facts which exist In the olces of the sheriff
and clerIc of the district court of Douglas
county , Inl which tcnl1 to obstruct and
prevent n full and complete investigation by
myself or any one else In ascertaining )
full and true amount oC moneys and fees
collected In these olces belonging to Doug-
las .county and whih should le accounted
ror by the several olccs above mentiofled.
There are at the prescnt time I large
number of what are termed nnd known ns
execution fee bills In the hamls of the sheriff
for collection. I think from what 1 saw
that there are about 300. perhaps more.
Except : tie one entry In each case showing
the Issuing of time fee bIll on the appearance
or execution daclcet , as time case may be
there Is no further record made In eIther
.he clerk's or sherlff's ofce whereby the
nmount collected 01 said Ceo bills can be
ascertatnel\ . B. Hosenzwel , ns deputy
for Sheriff 1)rexol told me that they kept
10 record of fee bills In thlt olce , us they
hnd no book on which to enter thmenm and
tit had not been the custom to do so.
In sUJport of this statement 1 wIll say that
In all of the examinations 1 have made In
these olces I have never found n fee bill
Ied with nny of the papers In the clerk's
ofhice. where they ought to be , showing the
imerIff's action , If any . and the amounts
collected on same. I know that Mr. F. g.
Moores . time clerk of the district court keeps
some fee bills flied away with what he
terms his private papers and did , on one
occasion when I Inquired for certain ones ,
produce them wih the request that they bo
returned to him personally , 'which was dono.
On these I found $ 0.91 of . fees earned by
Sheriff Bemmnett , which do not show on any
record In either the cleric's or sherlfs office ,
and should these fee bills ever be mislaid or
removed from the clerk'R office there would
be no record by whIch the amount of fees
earned by the sheriff could be ascertained.
Mr. Rosenzweig also told me that John
Iowlf was employed by Cleric 1oores to
collect I large number of the50 fee llIIs. I
asked him It Lewis was acting In the
capacity ot deputy sheriff. Ho said no
will Douglas county get the benefit of fees
earned by Lewis to apply on the sherlff's
salary ? I looks to me that both cleric and
sheriff should be compeled to keep a record
of each and every fee bl issued the same I
as Is done with regular executions , lS dl- ,
rected by statute , a there must have been
upward of 1,0 In the past year
HE FINDS HIEROGLYPHICS.
Another mater that prevents ant obstructs -
structs me from ascertaining the true and
full amount of moneys collected by the
clerk of the district court Is the use by him
of character or letters to Indicate the
amount of money that ho has collected In
certain cases , Instead of putting them In
Illuln figures. I have frequently found tbls
and I bears upan its face the evidence of
nn atempt to conceal the true amounts
collected , and has been used In some cases
to divert money that belongs to the county
to the use of the clerk pro se , as shown by
the following receipt : .
"October 27 , IS93.-Recetved of surety
herein full satisfaction or my unpaid costs
herein. ( A.U.A.I. )
"FRANK E. 1OOnES , Cleric. "
I have thoroughly Investigated this case
nOI have evidence to show and prove that
the amount received hy ClerIc looreR 11
this case was not all of his unpaid costs ,
but also Includes trial fees duo county $1 ;
sheriff's costs on execution , $1 : costs on
transcript from lower court , $ .55 : mlldng
total fees other than his own , $9,6.
This Is not the only case of this kind
The use or this chamcteh' or letter receipt
has been In use In the clerk's office for the
. pat five or stx years and Is apparently used
.to conceal the true amount collected. Is
there no remedy for limbs ? Docs not the
law prescribe that the record shall show In
eaah Ild every case the amount received
by the cleric I find that this kind of re-
ceipt stl cOltnuls to be made up to the
present time , I find ii large number of cases
In which tme county Is entitled to trlli fees ,
also a large amount of witness fees that
have I not been called for are stl In the
hands of the clerk. I have also found a
great number of caRes In whIch the county
hns been overcharged anti his collected hy
the cleric far : 11 excess of what they shoull
taken In conmiection with
he These facts , tlkel connecton
the peculiar manner usell In making receIpts
In the clerlt's office , impel me to make this
communication , to see I some acton cannot
be hnll toward removing amid preventing
such obstructions to the work In imand.

VI' time 1eland.
Sheriff Drexel yesterday afternoon came infer
for a large share of tie attention of time
county commissioners. His reports of the
receipts and expenditures of his ofco during
the second , thIrd and fourth quarter of the
year 1894 were received from the finance
committee , and , with a few aught . correc-
tions . wore approved. From the four quar-
terly reports or the year mentioned It would
appear that on a cash basis the office was
$1.09 bettor than self-supporting , the receipts -
colpts for 1894 having been $7.54109. and
time disbursements 7540. There Is earned
and not collected . however , In pending civil
cases $2,88123. and insane fees uncollected .
$166. These outstanding fees In civil cases
called out a resolution by Stenberg , which
was adopted , Instructing time sheri In all
cases where pTactcabo : to Insist upon pay-
moat for services In advance.
OTHER REQUESTS MADE.
This was only the first gun leveled ltI
Another report from the same committee I
referred to a communication from the sheriff
to the elect that ho lad In 1894 collected
fees as temporary receiver In certain cases
to the amount of $1,046 , which lie had re-
tamed , as 10 did not consIder them fee of
the office to be turned over to time trels-
uror. The finance commitee hall obtained
thin opInion of tIme county attorney . which
was to the contrary , and accordingly the
boar ordered Mr. Drexel to turn over this
$1,046 to the county treasurer at once.
Another report from time finance commitee
ordered time sherIff to make I report to the
board of all 01 the foes collected by James
C. Swift while acting lS deputy sheriff In
thn omn or the county ludre. and Day over
the whole - m i n-t-so- le i d. It ' will be
remembered that The Dee published the fact
lat week thaL James C. Swift was acting
and that the
tinder Ippolntment by Drexel thlt
later had notified the county judge to allow
Swift to take time fees ernel as payment
for his services. This Is contrary to time
statutes as Interpreted by the county attorney -
torney and Mr. Drexel wIll now have to re-
fund SInce the publication of the facts
Swift Ils been notified that his services
would bo dispensed with unless time county
cmmisioners allowed him to bO put on time
