When Chief Whlto took the stand again yesterday In the hearing of the two men charged with the theft ot Shukert' * furs ho effectually dispelled the Idea which the pros ecution had trltxl the day before to convey to the court , that the Identification of Mrs. Dachelder In the beginning of the case was strong and had been supprosseJ by the po lice. The chief tcstlne ? ! that his detectives had reported to him and to Captain Donahue that the woman gave but a poor description of the men , such a meager ono that It would bes of no use nt all In tracking them. The chief then concluded that Mrs. Uacheldcr would be of no Use and did not give her another thought. In commenting on the case after leaving the atniid , Chief White said that the Iden tification mndo by * Mrs. Bachclder on the stand the day before wag not a fplr ono and would not be counted lor nnich among police officers. The method In use among nil rep utable officers IB to place n suspect In a row with a dopcn or moro men anil then It a witness can pick him out the Identification Is fair and can bo relied upon. But In a case like that of Mrs. Bncheldcr , where the suspects ares pointed out to a witness ns the guilty persons and the witness asked It she can Identify them , her Imagination li powerfully stimulated nnd a -called Identification almost Invariably results. Mrs. Dachelder the chief and other police cmcers believe * waa gteatly strengthened In her convictions between the time she talked with the detectives and when she took Inn otand by being told by the county attorney's agents thnt they had the men who took the furs , that they were the men who had had v her rooms , and she must como up and \ Identify them. Naturally she felt safe In ' " making an assertion thnt they were the men. In regard to the expressman , Kasley , the Identification wns even less reliable , ns he had first told the police that the man tor whom ho hauled a trunk \vaa light nnd looked llko a Swede. All the men hold by the police were dark and Easlcy's description fitted none of them. Clilc-r White C'onUnuon. Chief White waa the only witness of the morning. He began with the arrival of the two men from Joplln , nt which time they protested their innocence. After two or three consultations they made the first prop , i ositlou looking to dismissal for return of the goods. They said. "Nowe deny that we nre guilty nnd we hadn't anything to do with the robbery , but wo know a good many thieves all ovrr the country. If vvo can , through our friends , help > oti to get the goods , what can you defer for us ? " The chief told them that he could not promise them anything without seeing Shu kert and the county attorney. Shukcrt's eolc ambition was to get the goods. Ho said that people were coming Into the store every day , demanding their garments and suing him for them. Some of the Kirments were not worth $10 to the trade , but their owners were suing for $500 , and ho would have to replace thorn with new garments. Witness told Shukert that there was not sufficient evidence to convict the men nnd hShukert ) wanted to dismiss them to get thn goods nt once. Witness told him to see the county attorney , which ho did , nnd reported to wit ness that County Attorney Shields had promised to release the men whenever Shukci't requested It. Nothing was said at this time to the county attorney regarding the number of furs Shukert would be satis fied with , but the latter told the witness thnt ho would bo patlsfied with thirty-five Then the prisoners were allowed to write and Dennis' wife cinie to Omnha. She de nied all knowledge of the crime , but prom ised to see what aho could do and loft for Chicago. In n few davs he got a letter tellIng - 1 Ing him to como to Chicago and receive the Roods there. They came addressed to John Rogers , care of the Parmalee Express com pany. The company , nt the chief's request , delivered the packages a trunk , n box nnd A paper bundle nt witness' Chicago office WltncfH had had nothing to do with the routing of the packages and did not know whore or whom they came from. AN to ( lie * Ht'miril. In regard to the reward , witness said that ho had never suggested that Shukert offer ono. Shukert had asked him If It would bo well for him to offer $2,000 and no questions gskinl for the recover ) of the goods and he bad said that It would do no harm , though It would probably do no good. It paid , the chief said , the toward would be distributed to various persons all over the country , somn of It to the Missouri parties , some of It to the police of Des Molnes and a part to the pollca department of Omaha. One-fourth of the latter share would go to the Police men's Benevolent association , so that In any event the poitlon to be tlven ; out In Omaha tvould bo small The reward had never been discussed by Donahue and himself. Witness had told the two girls that If the reward were paid there was no reason wh ) they should not have some of It for sta- Ing In the city on oxponw nnd because It vvna through the trip to Chicago , made by one of them , that the furs had been re covered At the tlcne the girls swore they had never Identified ny one. witness was In Chicago and knew nothing of It. Ttin girls told witness that Shields had askol them to let him collect their reward , as he thought ho could get moro for them thnn tbt ) police could Later same agreement had been made between thn glrU and Shukert lu the pretence ot Captain Donahue for the pnjmenl to them of ? 200. Assistant County Attorney Dunn tried , but failed , to get the witness to take bnclc his previous statement thnt an agreement hud been reached with the county attorney ten elays before witness left for Chicago to net the Kooda. Then Mr , Dunn asked why wit ness had called htm ( Dunn ) up the day h'3 left fur Chicago nnd asked about the agree ment. WltncKi replied thnt It was because ho had no confidence In the word of the county nttorney and ho did not want to go to Chicago to malvo promises he would not bo ublo to carry out. Ho trusted Dunn more. Ho expected to remain n police olflccr and had to deal squarely even with suspects and considered an agreement with them BH binding as any bo uiado with MUNYON'SGUARANTEE.

The chief stated that his only motive in going to Chicago wai to recover the goodi and get the "fiqileal" fcomplalnt ) off the "squeal book " He had not withhold any evidence at any lime. The only evidence ; that had been added since the beginning was the Identification of Mrs , Ilachcldor , made on the stand the day before. Hut he had looked up Mrs. Unrhelder Immediately after the robbery , through his detectives , and at that time she was unable to give any description of the men and didn't think eho would know them again. The chief had told the accused that he could prove they carried the goodn across the htrcet , which was not true. He might have threatened to "railroad" them ; he did not remember. Ho had recovered forty-one garments , all but one of these stolen , nnd ho believed he could recover the other. Shield * Ai | > rnr * ill I.ml. County Attorney Shields , last witness for tbo state , took the stand Into In the after noon. During hie examination all he said bearing on the reanons tor his refusal to dis miss the men as he had ngrccd to do ivaa "I got to thinking. The turning point In my mind was the circumstance that the property was shipped from DCS Molnes to Chicago , There seemed to me to be Home- thing wrong about that and that's why I telephoned In the afternoon that 1 would not be down to dismiss the prisoners. " The county attorncj's mind , In looking back over the last few months , the last few weeks , or even the last few days , seemed to be Blaring \alnly Into a fog Police ofll- cers became confused with fur merchants , expressmen with attaches of his own office , dates nnd hours of the day became flotsam nnd Jetsam , conversations with various pcr- soni drifted hither and thither , nnd n tow wore even loot ever the < > dge of the dim horizon. He did not specify any particular evldenco which had been withheld , nor did his deputy , who was examining him , ask him to do BO. Ills testimony was In substance corroborative of all thnt had been said by Chief White , Captain Donahue and other witnesses , with the exception of a fen unim portant points. Ho denied , for Instance , that he had asked Miss Anderson and Miss Kep- lor to allow him to collect their reward for them , that he had talked of releasing the men ten days before Chief White started for Chicago to get the goods , or that ho know then the suspects had made efforts to re store the goods. Ho asserted thnt he heard of the offer of the defendant ? to help In the recovery only after the goods had arrived In the city He admitted having promised un conditionally at one time to release the pris oners nnd having started to write an order to that effect. liliMitlflcntlon I'nllM. Two wltnesoe , upon whom the prosecution evidently hid counted to show up some "sup pressed evidence , " an employ of Shukcrt's store and a man who had roomed vvhero the suspects are alleged to have taken rooms , failed to establish any vital connection with the case nnd Mr. Dunn dismissed them read ily enough. Miss Gllfcather , one of Shu- kerfs clerks , testified that she saw a man pass In the rear and along the side of the building just as another man entered the front of the store on the Saturday afternoon before the robbery occurred. When asked If either of the defendants looked like the one In the store she replied : "Rcilly , neither one of them looks Just like him. " She could not describe the other man. When asked If ho resembled either Dennis or Monaghan she answered : , "I can't say. I did think this man ( Mon- aghan ) looked llko him. but he didn't have any whiskers and I did not see his face. 1 merely glanced at him as ho walKcel past. " Carl Jacobs , a Bohemian , was called. He knew no English , and Officer Vanous was sworn as interpreter. JacoH had roomed In the building of which Mrs. Bachclder had charge and had seen two men there at about the time of the robbery. He wat > then asked by Mr. Dunn to look around the court room and tell If he saw either of the men , but he replied that there was no one he knew Ho thought he would know ono ot the men If be saw him , a hallow man with a dark moustache. That ended Mr. Jacobs' usefulness. \\nen ino siaiu rec-anuii .mo A. , v.ii. . . > > . Identify the photograph of Prince on the circular sent out by the police , the defense objected on the grounds that Prince bad nothing to do with the guilt or Innocence of the defendants , but the picture was ad mitted. The only serious question of law so far raised In the case was over the admission In evldenco of letteis nnd telegrams In posseffilon of Chief Whlto relating to the case. Mr. Dunn put the chief on the stand and asked him to produce the letters and telegrams. The defense objected , claiming that nothing written between an agent and a principal could be introduced in criminal proceedings against the principal and that It had been universally held In all criminal courts of standing that confidences that paea between a man In custody and the offleer In charge worn not admissible evidence Judge Gordon held that the defendants were not electing to stand on the promise nnd that they were on trial entirely as though there had never been any promise v\hatever. He thereupon ruled out the letters and tel egrams and the chief as excused flora the stand. Mr Shukert v\as recalled to the ttaud to explain what Miss Anderson and Miss Kop- lor had done at the station In the way of an Identification. He said that Captain Don- ahuo biought the men out nnd walked them back and forth before the girls. The girls had said that they wore biiro of their Identi fication During the afternoon Captain Donahue shed omo light on the value of the Identi fication by the girls. In his pretence. Shukert had promised that It Mlse Andenou would go to Chicago nnd Identify the men ho v uld pa > her e\pors > es and give her a seaUkln cloak , made to measure. She re plied tiat ) that would bo all right. Witness wani'ed the girl not to let the promise In fluence her mind. Afslatnnt County Attorney Dunn wont on the stand and testified to substantially the samu things regarding the promise of Im munity as had Captain Donahue He ad mitted on crojs-oxamlnatlon that the police nlwajs gave him and the county attorney all the evidence they bad against n suspect.

Mr. Anthony Hope's new book , "The King's Mirror , " Is A bold departure from the ordinary canons of novel writing nnd from hU own habit o ! composition. There Is , strictly speaking , no plot In "Tho King's Mirror" , nnd in the place of that world ot swift adventure to which the author has accustomed his rend ers ho presents us with a quiet nnd carctul study of the private life of a king King Augustin la a monarch , presumably of the present day , and reigns over an Imaginary kingdom of which Forstadt Is the capital. The narrative Is told by the king himself , and has the effect rather of a discursive personal memoir than of a story , the char acters being moro llko the personnel of a diary than the mainstays of Intrigue. The effect Is , of course , Intentional , nnd If the admirers of "Tho Prisoner of Zenda" may at first be a little surprised nt the character of "Tho King's Mirror , " they will bo grati fied to realize that Mr. Hope Is , after nil , is willing to appeal to their sensibility as to their love ot excitement. King Augustin tells us In so many words that because ho Is a king wo must not think that his lot Is any happier than our own , Itc has his pomp and splendor and even a little power , but what is that to the Joy peculiar to "our lit tleness , " of making and preserving our own friendships or of choosing a wife after our own hearts ? In a vein somewhat ot this kind , helped by a variety of pleasing Inci dents and a dialogue as crisp and to the point as we expert from Mr. Hope , the king tells his tale of divinity that doth hedge him round and grows even a little sad , though ho feels It is more klngllke to be cynical thnn sentimental. Besides that of the mel ancholy but engaging Auguetln the author has added other characters worthy of exhibi tion In the same gallery as the Princess Flavia , Rupert llassundyll , or the 1'rlnccsa Osra. Among the best Is the Iron chancellor , Hnmmerfeldt , who reminds us not a little of Sapt , the witty nnd Ironical Wetter , who nhowa us the best side of a radical , and the Countess Von Sempach , who U good but dangerous the more so for that Impression of naUeto In her character , tvhlch Mr. Anthony Hope ! > o well knows how to convey. Appleton & Co. , New York. Cloth , $1.50. One of the best bits of recent American fiction Is "A Mountain Kuropa , " by John Fox , Jr. H depicts life In the Tennessee mountains with the clearness and sharpness of n photograph , jet nt the same time with so much sympathy w Ith the mountaineer that one cannot fall to understand them better , after making the acquaintance ot his characters. His story Is old In plot , but It Is new in all Its features. There seems to be no deliberate attempt to paint word pictures of the beautiful scenery of these mountains ; but In a few lines Mr. Pox sketches a scene that serves to bring Into stronger relief the personages In his tragic story. All the phases of unspoiled nature In these remote mountain fastnesses are sketched so sharply that wo know the places and the people as though we had seen them with our own ejcs. The story turns on the adventure ot a New York mining en gineer In the Cumberland mountains who encounters a beautiful girl , becomes inter ested In her , stimulates her to study and unconsciously separates her from the rustic lover who had know her all bis life. Clay ton , the engineer , first met Easter Hicks as she was riding home on a bull , a modern Europa. with grist from the mill. The bull charged the stranger and burst the meal bag , greatly to the annoyance of the girl , but she Is not so much preoccupied as to fall to note the clothes of the stranger or to speculate on his reasons for lifting Tiis hat when ho took leave of her. The ac quaintance ripens rapidly , much to the dis comfiture ot Sherd Raines , the young lover , who Is studying to be a circuit rider. Much of the story Is written In dialect , but It Is a dialect that , like Uncle Remus' negro talk , may be easily understood. The story Is well worth careful reading for Its literary art and Its truth to a phase of little known American life. Harper & Brothers , New York Cloth , $1. The third volume In the new library edi tion of Edward Everett Hole's works Is "Ten Times One is Ten , and Other Stories. " In a preface the author gives an Inter esting account of the remarkable develop ment of schemes of practical charity and helpfulness from this story. The "Lend a Hand" societies spread from city to city and some years after they were Increased by the "Look-up Legion. " It wns Miss Ella ElUabeth Russell of Now York who In May , 1870 , formed the first club from her Sunday school class She had read the story to her pupils , who were bo > o between the ngcs of 12 and 17 , and they hod been much struck with the good work done by Harry Wadsworth , the hero of the storv. So the society was formed , the first of many hun dred. It Is a curious fact that the book was popular In prisons , and one club of young women devoted themselves to circulating the story among prisoners , Finally these so cieties grow so numerous that Dr. Hale was Induced to start a little Journal called Lend n Hand , which was afterward merged In the Charities Review , but the central ofllco of the clubs In Boston still publishes the Lend n Hand Record. Among the work performed by the united clubs were hospitals for col ored people in the southern states , a scnooi at Mnnasscs and recently care of the sick In tha Spanish war This Is a remarkable nnd noteworthy work to como from ono story Among the other ( .torles In this book aio "Neither Script Nor Money , " "Stand and Walt , " "Hepzlbah's Turkeys" and "Our Now Crusade" They are all marked by that breezy realism which Is ono of the great charmo of Dr. Halo's style , and sev eral of them have genuine pathcs.

The claim Is often made fop a book that It Is "founded on fact , " and In the case of an historical book this assurance Is very necessary , but not often Is the claim mndo with moro reason than In the case of Mr. Everclt T.

They visited various places , dug out old records , Investl- gvted family traditions nnd family scrapbooks - books and had many personal Interviews with the "oldest Inhabitants " One ot these was a sea captain SO years ot ago , helpless now , but his mind as active and clear ns ever. Ills father was fifteen years old when the baittle ot Monmouth v\os fought , and he told his boy many stories which In turn were told to Mr. Tomllnson and his sons.

Mitchell , who Is already known to the public a the author of n number of very readable nnd Instructive volumes. There arc many Inter esting things In this volume , but the most striking of them all In Its youthfulncss. Mr Mitchell Is no longer n joung man. Born In 1S22 , the new century will soon see him enter upon his SOth jear. And yet he writes with the lightness of touch , the jojousncss , the life nnd charm that his ad mirers made acquaintance' with In hi * earli est books More than two jcars have" passed since Mr. Mitchell published his first volume devoted to "American Lands nnd Letters" It embraced the colonial and rev olutionary nnd some jears later , far enough down to Include Irving nnd Cooper , those writers who , moro than Edwards nnd Trank- lln , moro than all who wrote FO profusely In times still earlier than Edwards nnd Franklin writers now quite forgotten snvo to collectors of Americana gave our country a place In the court of literature abroad. The Biib-tltlo of the- present volume , "Leather-Stocking to I'oe's Rnvon , " suggests clearly enough the year * that It embraces the years when Bancroft and Emerson , Haw thorne and Holmes had given to their coun trymen their earliest works , writing their names largo In their countrj's truest his- lory and adding to American possessions those things which best make for Its great ness. Some of these men Mr. Mitchell hns known personally , notably Hawthorne , of whom he gives several pages of delightful reminiscences. There Is a lasting value to Mr. Mitchell's work nnd no student of American literature should fall to rend his work. Charles Scrlbner's Sons , New York. Cloth , ? 2 GO. The great activity of the various "colonial" and "historical" societies of New York and Pennsjlvnnla and the number and ex cellence of their publications have so pre pared the public comprehension that the two volumes ot Mr. John Flsko's "The Dutch nnd Quaker Colonies In America" will find more well Informed readers awaiting them than nny one of the five pairs which have preceded It during the last ten jenrs Like "Tho Beginnings of New England. " It brings the colonial story In detail down to the accession of William and Mary , , al though some threads of the narrative nre traced Into the next century , and It begins by cxplnlnlng the European causes work- ins to produce the men and the etntc of feeling destined to mold the republic. One chapter Is given to "The Mediaeval Nether lands" and one to "Dutch Influence Upon England , " and In opening the latter the author speaks of the recent reaction against the former narrowness which silently passed over all contributions to American civiliza tion not English. In the chapter on "Privi leges and Exemptions , " the subject of French Influence Is Introduced , French and English relations with the Iroquols and Al- gonqulns ore considered nnd one Is shown the beginning of that struggle which by breaking the power ot the Lennl-Lenapes , left Pennsylvania In peace during the early years of her colonial existence. This work leaves the English colonies nnd their al lies ranged for the contest with New France , which contest , with the preliminary history of the French settlements , will fill the author's next book. This present work puts the kejstono In the arch against which France was to dash herself In vain. It Is hardly necessary to add that the work Is a valuable contribution to American colonial history , and It would seem as If the author had entirely exhausted the subject , leaving nothing to be added by future writers. The author's style Is pleasing , and few writers have bis happy faculty of dressing up facts In such an entertaining style. Houghton , Mlflln & Co , Boston. It would seem as If the public would never tire of rending of Admiral Dewey and not only are the dally papers and the magazines filled with the theme , but books , seemingly without number , are being turned out. The latest work of the kind to claim attention lo a volume bearing the title. "The Life ot Admiral Dewey , " by Will M. Clemens. Admiral Oeorgo Dewey Is one of the most Interesting characters In Ameri can history , and this work supplies to the reading public the much-needed informa tion concerning his life and deeds. We have been supplied with odds and ends of information In this line through the columna of the press , from time to time , but hero we have It nil between two covers of a most excellent book , written by one whose at tainments arc fully adequate to his task. Mr Clemens , the author , eomos of good literary stock , being a nephew of "Mark Twain , " His former work entitled , "A Ken of Kipling , " has attained much prominence , and this later work will fully establish Mr. Clemens as n writer of worth and ability.
