to the Subway Tavern and knows its history knows that your regard to it art absolutely false and purposely misleading But anonymous writer in the Daddyless Heraldwhy didnt you point out to your readers where my statements are absolutely false and purposely ifiis leading You simply assert you dont t prove Possibly the omitted picture destroys the sense The mere fact that you atone time visited Bishop Potters Sub way Tavern does not prove Sir that it was not unrighteous and unholy it does not prove Sir that Bishop Potters church saloon was not one ot the most notoriously infamous hellholes in all New Yorkand the rendezvous of the citys meanest criminals Ah no The fact Sir that you an anonymous vy ter in a daddyless paper v site Bishop Potters church saloo i the home of in decent women does not byany means prove hat my statements are false and i misleading You must come forwardwith stronger evidence But this anonymous writer in the Daddyless Herald has a few serious sentences in his article and among them are these words purloined from the Address issued Li9f a meeting in Louisville recently The saloon of the future must correspond with the beer gardens and to your children and threatens the des truction of your posterity and they will rise up in after years and call you 1 trust that on the morning of the 26th of August after the smoke of battle has cleared

copying from the Na tional Wholesal Liquor Dealers Address the anonymous writer in the daddyless paper says The fame of Kentncky whisky is world wide in extent and the product of our distilleries is

a blessing to mankind all the same and it is recognized as a blessing by the prohibitionists just the same as by those who believe in personal lib erty As theewriter he and the editor of The Sun agree We flo not dispute that the fame of Itentuckywhisiy ky is worldwide we most emphatically deny that the product four distilleries is carrying laughter and sunshine into mil lions ot homes Not long since in an eastern city a workman stepped prom a tenth story it was found that the scaffold had been tamperedwith iby some murderous dem on whose purpose was to make it a It is snot strange that the

unmercifully out among the breakers and the rocks and we have heard with our own ears the heartrending cries ofmothers and the distressing wails of hungry children And we have seen the product of our distilleries blight out the sunshine of many a Kentucky home and leave a great dark shadow across the thresh hold But wee have never seen nor have eye ever heard of an instance where it Brought laughter and sunshine into a home We deny that it gives courage to to those who faulter unlessit be an o We deny Ithat it gives strength to those who are Weak and health toythose Who are sick for sta

fertile acres extended into the towns limits The old brick mansion with its great colonial porches grid its beautiful wall vines attracted the eye of every stronger and made tent wish for just such a home The arm was called the Garden of Oaks Surrounding the stately old dwelling were many of these monarchs of the forest which in the primitive days the woodsman spared Around the north boundary of the farm hardly a stones throUgh away meandered the beautiful Ohio while to the south was an hun dredacre woodland pasture where tie great herds of Capt W made flesh for the markets of the country To the east was the old Louisville piker running now along the banks of the river now through a woodland arid on andpn it seemed to anywhere you antedtogon Tie old negroes of the mmunitj ijhpught it was

less than twenty year ago Every strang er who Yisitsthi little city ifhe stays over night will have the details of the narrative poured into his earS Q is not an ugly town neither is it a pretty townjust one of those places where a man or i woman might live and be satisfied ani at the same time not be delighted with all things In some sections of the tOwn the pave ments are of boards in other sections stepPiqglstones brick pavements with an occasional yard or so of concrete Some of the residencesare modern lout the most of them have that pretty old timeness about them which carries the memory of man back to the good old days when dear grandfather and grandmother lived there The churches are nice and commodious but the school house is just about passable while the court house is the pride of all the coun ty Indeed there is muph quaintness about the old town but here and there you will find signs of progressiveness After you have been there a while you become interested To save your life you couldnt tell why hut when you leave you will say to yourself Someday I must come back agaih The people are not rich but generally speaking they are good Lycraand- are honorable and honest to a pretty degree If there is one thing above all others that Cpeople are it is the fact that they have prOUiof down aristocracy among their And this is a brief des town that Jim C and Fannie W grew up in CHAPTER III Jim 0 was the son of welltodo parents His father was the leading merchant of the town and his mother was one of those pretty Christian char acters that allpebp1eloved and admiredl Jim was the only child and they had humored himsupplied his ever child ish want and at an early age sent him tocollege at Lexington Ky where he graduated at the headof his class He was a manly fellowhandsome bold and courageonsa fine horseman a good athlete and indeed he was a fine specimen of young manhood Fannie Wwas recognized belle of the whole country She had finished her education at Vassar and i brought home with her the music and art medals of the institution She too was an athlete Not Hg pleased her better than a horseback ride Along the banks of the Ohio She was great hearted pureminded and gentle but was brave and daring She would ride none but spirited blood d horses and the excitement of the fox chase was a tonic to her soul She was one of those delightful characters admired by all men and loved by many jBut she and Jim had loved each other since the day he crowned her Queen of the May in childhoods manyIsummers ago and she times promised him that her heart was his till death kissed her eyelids down And after she had made the terrible discovery that Jim Was wrecking his life that he was unworthy of the love of any true woman she loved him still and tried to her utmost to reform him But the demon of drinkJhad coiled it self about his and he tried hard to throw it off his efforts proved dismal failures1 His compan ions tempted him and keeping bar in the town was one of those mean individ uals who sets his trapsj daily jQjte day he invited Jim in to try a new drinkand Jim knocked him down But the dastardly coward tried again and Jim drank the nevfdrink IIAnd o1M CHAPTER IV JimCdid not gn to the home of his sweetheart on the following morn ing as he had previously announced an busiedhims-elf making preparations to leave for Mississippi the next morning Late in the afternoonabout dusk Jim found Fannie waiting for him at the Garden of Oaks down by the Gate of Wild Rosesa gate oer the archof which he andshe when children had trained a wild rose vine And she said in her childish happiness When the vine grows and the roses bloom and the stars come put some night in May we will be married beneath this arch of Purity And then he said And I will place upon your brow a cluster of wild roses and then you and 1 will grasp the wild rose vine and thus we will hear the preacher say the ceremony linking our lives and desti ntesand then lye will be happier than the Little Songsters Fannie lets stroll to the banks of theriyer said Jim I want to talk to you about a matter important to both Qf us It was some minutes fore he spoke again and when he did his first words were r I am going away tomorrow I am going to Mississippi Fannie did not seem surprised in fact it seemed to Jim hat she was indifferent and a jealous pang had al ready darted through h s heart but the words that followed reli eved him of the sting for Fannie said Jim take me with you as your wife Tears came Into the boys eyes and it was with difficulty that he said Fannie I think too much of you to marry you now You now my dear girl that I am a drunkrd When I re form we will marry Not until then Down in Mississippi these temptations will be far from me and I will be a bet ter man I promise you my sweet heart that 1 will try to my uttermost to destroy this awful appetite for al coholic beverages And I believe through the memory of you the prayers of a Christian mother and the hfelp of a good God I will conquer the fiend Jim said Fannie with a quiver in her voice go but the separation is terribleand I will be so lonesome The rippling of the old Ohio to whose mu sic we have listened for so many years will be as funeral knells and all the world will be dreary till you come to me again in the Garden of the OaksAnd thds they talked The chill breezes of the April evening began to blow and the ardent lovers stepping close to he waters edge looked longingly ou upon the placid bosom of the beauti ul river A steamboat waS plowing the waves near the Indiana evidencetof life Y to the young lovers Ah Fannie I believe it would be better for those who love me better for the world around me if I were this minute in deaths embrace beneath these beautiful waters A B tOh JimI am chilled lets go away from the riverlets go to the Gar en of Oaks And oer the ofttrod path through the little meadow they strolled back to the Garden of Qaksto kiss good bye beneath the arch of the Gate of Wild Roses Fannie did not say goodbye but in- steadshe murmured I know you willr know you will quit drinking I swear I will I swear before heaven I will never touch another drop And thus they parted At the foot of the hill Jim looked back and saw Fannie standing beneath the arch of the Gate of Wild Roses Then he quickened h sstep toward home CHAPTER V On the following morning Jim boarded the train for Louisville and in the evening of the same day he left for his new home in Mississippi His heart was heavy but he was convinced that he was taking the right step He felt that to remairt in his native town would ultimately result in his ruin and as the temptation could not be removed from him he decided to remove himself from the temptation There is nothing of interest to tell of Ws trip to Mississippi He arrived in due time and was royally welcomed by hs friend and wife who at oncje began to throw around him those home com forts whichall of us know are blessings to af homesick fellow He was given employment as a bookkeeper for the plantation and Was supplied with all the luxuries of a rich planter A week passedabout the longest Jim had ever experiencedandmore than once he was homesick to the point of boarding a train for Kentucky but each time the old life at home loomed up before himin its most terrible vivid ness and he simply said Never I must not return until I have conquered my appetite Fannies letters came often the gave him new lifenew Hopedeter mination His mothers letters too were fuUof inspiration and upon these encouraging sweet heart and Imothermissivffrom his hope for the The wee s and slow ly away and the winter months came dreary months the rainy season set in and the days were dreary But Jim was encouraged the old appetite cravedlastimflaJitfought the de sire off Each day he felt that he had won a new victory over appetite He was becoming happy and he wrote to Fannie Uthe victory is nearly won One day a letter came from Fannie announcing that the people of Chad petitioned the court to calla local option election and she added we are going to Vote the saloon out then Jim you must come home He was pleased jnetoin routing the barroom and he received many encouraging letters from old chums and friends saying that they were in the battle and expected to vote for local option The election was to be held in March Jim was im patient for the day tocome ior the re suit of this election would d stermine whether or not he was to retu n home The day before the election Jim went to a

closed its doors On the 18th of May Jim kissed Fannie under the arch of the Gate of Wild Roses And they were happier than they had ever been before They strolled over to the banks of the oil Ohio Hand in hand loot ing out over the crystal waters they r newed the court ship and told each other Qfan undying love On the 30th of May beneath the arch of the Gate of Wild Roses each rasping the wild rose

advertised Ynew drinks tradejtHe he resorted to every to get his place started off rightIas he termed it Well said Jim one daya year after the barrooms haa been reopened I guess Fannie I will have to take the middle of the road for it now Why asked Fannie Theyve opened aj barroom on my side of the street and they are now on all sides theyve got me hemmed in Not once since the saloons were opened have I passed the doorof a barroom Occasionally the old thirst for drink tears at my very soul and its hard t subdue the demon Oh Jim doit ten me thatl dont tell me that the re is danger Lets go away Lets go way from the tempta tion There is no danger Fannie he as sured liar H will never drink again I will drown myself in the Ohio first CHAPTER VII Fannies father died It was in February A short time after a bahYbo was born toherCapt Whadhis large estate to his daughter an Jim was now athe real proprietor of the beautiful Garden of Oaks Two years had gone since the barroom opened and the town

necessary for the writer to undertake to describe the Horror which enteredinto thQ soul of the loving wife From that day her lifJ was miserable 1Jim continued to drink each day a lit Atie J harderI CHAPTER mil 1IThree more years passed byi The Garden of Oaks was not the same place The fences frere down the fields were neglected add little by little the stock had been sold One day the sheriff came and read a notice to Fannie He explained to her that she must leave that the Garden of Oaks had been sold to Joe Troo Jim had not only drunk but he had gambled All of the old time mahogony furniture of Fannies mother went with the place and she her little girl and baby boy were turned out penniless Fannie rented a small cottage in town Jims father furnished it with neatbut- not costly furniture for hetoo had met with financial reverses She earned a comfortable sustenance for herself and little family by teaching music and giving lessons in art And thus for another year they lived Jim although never sober seldom abused Fannie or the little ones He was not often at home But with all of hisdebauchery Fannie loved him Many many cold winter nights had she gore alone and brought him home For she had loved himloved him ardently f since he crowned her Queen of the Mays many long years before The little girl Fannie was her name Jim christened her for the mother was stricken with scarlet feVer For a l few dais Jim did not drink so heavily The child grew worse and the doctor told Jim one morning that she could not survive the day Jim remained by her bedside aU the morning but in the afternoon he left In the evening he did not return Little Fannie just as the stars were coming out went away on the winds of the evening tothe Courts of God A messenger was sent for the foundoSome one went into Joe T barroom and made inquiry He was not there but Joe said he remembered seeing Jim pass through the Garden of Oaks toward the river about supper time A number of men went to therriyerto look 0 for him Through the dim starlight they saw a man standing near the waters edge watching boat plow the waves on the Indiana shore Creeping a little closer to the man they heard him say It would have been better thetbed waves of many years ago God forgive me and goodbye Fanniebut the sentence was not com pleted fort strong arm grabbed him and threw him away from thewater Jim laughed it ya a silly ha hai He told his rescuers that he never intended to be so rash and readily consented to walk with the crowd back to town He was told of little Fannies deatS but he seemed unaffected Jr In town he stoppedat Joe T bar room He called for a drink then another and another When the last glass had been drained he stepped back a few feet from the countervailed revolver from his pocket and fired a bullet through the brain of Joe T= People rushed into the place by the score Jim with the smoking pistol in his hand walked leisurly o tof the room and directed his footsteps toward hisscoming was a heartbroken woman bending oer the cold body of little Fannie When he opened the door and went into the room Fannie simply said Jim our little girl is dead And then like a maddened demon he raved He cursed the world and the God who gave him birth His eyes flashed in their Sockets like balls of fire and in an instant he jerked the pistol fron his pocket and emptied the contents through the ceiling In another moment the door was pushed abruptly open and the sheriff entered Over the prostrate form of a devoted wife and the dead body of his little daughter Jim C was placed in irons charged with the TmAnd Jim Cwas put in prison that night with the charge of murder regis tered against him CHAPTER IX It would require too much space for us to detail the horrorsthe intense sufferings which came into Fannies cottage home after this terrible castas trophe It seemed that her misesy was complete before but now the picture can notbe drawn Nervous prostration followed and for weeks it was thought she could not recover Darin those moments kt THE SPRINGFIELD SUN WEDNESDAY AUGUST 151406 r 3 when the fever was burning it seemed the flickering flame of life awayshe would smile and sayHAnd some night inMay when the stars are out we will be married beneath the arch of the Gate of Roses in the Garden of Oaks and then again she would say Yes Jim kiss me goodbye and go away from the temptation Goto Miss = ippi and conquor the demon At his examining trial Jim was held without bond and remanded to jaiL In the meantime his wife though very frail and weak was considered by the physician on the road to recovery Each day she went to see the husband carrying with her a bunch of wild roses Poor Jim tried to be cheerful when she was there He would invaribly say to herHI am away from the temptations now Fannie But my God the disgrace of this Cant you take oUrboy away Cant you go to another world But she firmly answered I will stay with you Jim Circuit court met in October Tim was indicted for murder in the first de gree Both the defense and Commonwealth + announced ready and after two days of scouring the country a jury was em pan led and the trial begun The wife and little son sat close to the prisoner and his attorney Jims lawyer was an old friend of Fannies father and had volunteered his services He had been a power in his day but now he was in his eightieth year and while he was yet recognized as an able criminal lawyer of course he had lost I much of his former vigor The father of the criminal also sat near he was the picture bf despair Jjm whispered to his w eOIl am glad mother is sleeping the last sleepI am glad she has been spared this ordeal The evidence was all inanda caseI of murder had been proyen The old lawyer made a powerful plea for the r defendant He carried the minds of the jurors back to the days when Jim had tried to reformwhen he hadgone to Mississippi leaving Toyed ones be hind in order to free himself from the snares of temptationin order to con quer the drink demon He toldin ai terrible vividness how the man Jim hadkilledhad conspired with lieutenants of The Resort to rob him of his home the Garden of Oaks His final plea was an appeal for mercy and it was heartrending The Commonwealths attorney deliv eyed a bitter speech He accused the faithful wife of being present for the purpose of influencing the jury He branded the defendant as the meanest murderer Kentucky had ever known and begged the jury to give him the death sent nceHe paid a high tribute to the man who had been killed refer ing to him as one of the towns most progressive business men He told of the number of houses he had built andI referred to the fact that he had at his own expense made now brick walks in fron of his Main Street property The closing utterance of the attorney Was a bitter tirade against the defendant re ferring to him as a worthless vaga OOn1a born murderer a sneaking and he prayed the jurors that they give the sheriff of the county an opportunity to hang the culprit Duringall of this display of bitterness the wife and the defendant sat unmoved seemingly not hearing the abusive epithets so unmercifully ap plied After some final instructions the jury filed into the deliberating room The court room was crowded with people awaiting the verdict But the day wore op and the evening came and no verdict was returned Most of the crowd had left the roompossibly seventyfiveof the towns people remained Nine oclock in the evening the jury announced a verdict After the clerk had called the names and the customary question had been asked eachof the jurors the verdict was read We the jury find the defendant guilty of murder in the first degree and fix his punishment at life in the State penitentiary- A terrible hush come over the courtroom The prisoner and his little fam ily sat motionless Presently the ghastly white distorted face of the devoted wife was seen under the glare of the lamps and hardly before the ourt ajfe spectators or the husband j Were aware shed sprung to her feet gave one miserably sickening scream and fell to the hard floor of the court room In an instant the husband was at her side He tenderly placed the fainting woftian on one of the rude benches and for a pillow he put his qoat berieathj her head The people began to surge about the prisoner and his wife but in a stranger determined voice he demanded that they sta d back andey obeyed Facing the Judge Jim jcooly and very calm ly aSkedi Maui Honor will you grant me the privilege of a few minutes speech The court will hear what you have to say the Judgeanswered The verdict just returned is no surprise to me began the prisoner I had expected it possibly I deserve it but your honor permit me to say that there are others here equally as guilty if not guiltier than I Within the sound of my voice are quite a number of men who are partners with me in the crime of which I stand convicted II am the accuser j The people expected a sensational charge and th re was an uneasy movinraround among them The accuse Jim and his voice was Pitc ed to its highest strain is you Your honor The accusation so forcibly and dramatticallypresent- ed created much excitement in the court room arid the Judge thundered to the sheriff totakecharge of the prisoner In a for minutes order was restored and thg prisoner begged to be allowed to proceed Fannie murmured Some night in May when the stars are out we will be married bjneath the arch of the Gate of Wild hoses and we will be happy Jim She was regaining con sciousness Jim quickly stepped to her side kissed her pale lips and whispered- a few words in Jier ears Then facing the Judge again he asked your hon or shall I proceed Poceed the Judge simply said I cbargeslir that youwhom I know to a partner in a brewery in the city of Louisvillew hen you came to this little town and spent your money and used your influence to again fasten upon the people the barroom became an accomplice to every crime committed as at result of intoxication Your prosecuting attorney sir is equally guilty f r well do 1 remember how he upon the side of the barroom and I upon the side of temperance iough the battle at our last election You 1oo andihe prisoner turned his blanc flashing eyes upon the man who hso unmercifully prosecuted him sh king his long bony finger fairly irr the attorneys face are a party to the murder of Joe T and there are otters in this room who are guilty An old man in the court room clap ped his hands and thEJudge fined him fO for contempt of court I should like to proceed further Jim said In a few days you swill sentfme to the State prison in chains I do not expect any mer- y from your court I certainly ask fdr none 1 may never again upon this earth know what mer cy is but when Ij plead my case before the courts of a just God I feel yea I know that Hew p sees into the heart of man will acquit me Raising his qUivering voice highest pitch looking the verytr1its of horror itself =great perspiration fall ing from his broyhe asked in a terri blevoice WHAT ARE THE BARROOMS OF THIS TOWN GOING TQ DO FOR ANOTHER JIM eThen ppintihg his finger at his sleeping baby boy his whole body in a convul sive state great veins bulging upon his forehead his eyes strangely fastened upon the Judge he said in a tone whidh sent a thrill of horror through every one presen You Sir and your Commonwealth Attorney will help to deliver my boy theIbarkeepers of thttell me that you vill not The pros perity of your bpwery depends upon the appetite of Jitie baby boys of this country Then urning to the Commonwealths Attorney he said If the appetite of my b y is notj cultivated i f the appetites of o her boys are not cul tivated the stock you own in that lit tle distillery acro s the way will be dworthlessA dIhonor and I amt irough t A deathlike st llness pervaded the root The people were nxious to hear the next accusation But he made nonehis speech was concluded thus If it pleases your honor I wan to appeal to the people of this court room to put down the whisky traffic in C Hadit not been for the barrooms of this town is there a man who doubts that I would tonight be a sober happy man surrounded by my little family in the Garden of the Oaks For the sake of the boys of your town for the sake of boys yet unborn I appeal to jjou to close the saloons of this town In the name of the lowly Nazarine in the name of home in the name of womankind in the frame of all things that are sacred and precious I appeal to you to join with one another and maKe a determined fight to stamp out the barroom In the cell of my prison home I will pray to a Gracious God to help you iCHAPTER X The week following Jim was taken to the penitentiary leaving his wife ling ring between life and death in the throes of another nervous collapse The off cers accompanied him to his humble home that he might tell wife and child goodbye Fannie tried to ap pear better and feebly whispered in his ear I will get well And I love you Jimnot less than I did the day you crowned me Queen of the May so many long years ago Planting kiss upon her brow and another upon her sunken cheek then pressing his baby boy to his breastthen kissing his wife again he turned to the officers and said lam ready A week passed and Fannie had re ceived two letters from JimShe wa too weak to write but the physician wrote a note and told him her condition was better After a few weeks he re ceived a letter in hIs wifes familiar handwriting For the boys sake he said I am glad she is recovering but oh had she died she would have missed a world of suffering which is yet before her Jim had been in prision over six months It was now spring again A good woman friend came and took Fan nie and the little boy for a drive They drove out by the Garden of Oaks but Fannie turned her head awav As the carriage was passing through town ors the way home and as is passed directly in front of The Resort the saloon owned by the late Joe T a man staggered out of the saloon and haled the driver Approaching the car nage he lifted his hat politely He took from his pocket a sealed envelope and without a word of explanation he thrust it into the lap of Fannie cUpon arriving home Fannie insisted that Mrs H who had kindly given her the ride should see the contents of the letter and together they went into the house The letteris self explanatory r CONFESSION Dear MadamWhat I am about to confess will be of interest to you On that July day your husband was thrown from his horse there was a c use for that horse throwing him and I know the cause He was shot in the flank with one of thesesling shots And it was done from Joe T barrom I am the man who did it and I was hired by Joe T to do it That was notI the first time I had attempted it eith I can not say why Joe T wanted suspicionIhe knew Jims disposition and that if h T would only take one drink it wouldn be two years till he would spend the Garden of Oaks for whisky Yours truly BILLS The old attorney who had defended Jim was liastily summoned and after he had read this letter he said I will go to Frankfort tomorrow A strong petition had previously been sent to the Governor asking for Jims pardon and thaofd attorney believed that this let ter would have much weight with the Chief Executive And it did Upon reading the confession arid again briefs ly reviewing the case he wrote a par dan The Governor granted the old attor ney the privilege of conveying the pardon to Jim and in less than an ho after the pardon had been granted he walked out of the Frankfort peniten tiary ja free man No 111 not go home Jim said U6ut I will ask you to deliver a letter to Fannie It was in May The moon was shedding her mellow rays over the little town of C A man passing down the street saw a covered wagon stand ing in front of Jim Cshome jie saw a man come out and place a child in the wagon and then a woman came out of the cottage and was assisted to a seat And he watched the wagon till it was Uwy put on the old Louisville pike Upon the hill near the Garden of Oaks the wagan halted for a moment and then in another moment it was lost to view behind the hill which led down to the river And there upon the banks of the riv eralmost in the same spot where Jim and Fannie had so often sat and watched the moonbeams play upon the bosom of the old Ohiothe wagon haltedagain Strange to say a steam boat was plow iig the waves on the Indiana shore This reminds me of the night you kissed me beneath the arch of the Gate of Wild Roses said F nnie The night before you left for Mississ ippi And tonight said Jim we are leaving the old home forever And it breaks your heart I know Fannie but we must take the boy away from

this hermit was Roscoe Overhardt For years before he died Overhardt lived in the lIttle old caiand wLeered over the mountains er abatdin quest pf game and gold It was always supposed by those who knew him or rather by those who saw im for no one hereabouts knew kin that Overhar t was mentally un balanced and that he was extremely poor In the twentyodd years that he made his home in the little old cabin OB the mountainside he never spoke of his own free will to any person sever raised his eyes to look into those of a man or woman with whom he met face to face and never bought groceries or clothing at a store in Twin Bridges or any other town in this phrt of Montana The furniture in the one room of his cabin was of the meanest sort The clothing upon the old mans back was shabbier than the furniture in his cabin A dog was the hermits only friend and companion For the dog he seemed to cherish a deep warm af fection while the faithful animals love for him was wellnigh human in its tenderness and constancy The strange silent old man fell ill a few weeks ago in his shabby little cabin on the mountain side and could anenewpassthAtfee a drink of water and found him dying Before a doctor could be reached the hermit went to his final rest A careful search of the dead mans cabin brought to light a rusty tin box containing a few gold coins and the letters and papers which tell in
