anything but a bed of roses she probably got along with him quite as happily us she expected So far is can bo learned there is no truth In the current rumor that her sudden de parture was the result

The parlors and halls on the second floor wero crowded to suffocation when Rev Dr McPherson delivered tho opening prayer It is doubtful if any funeral iu Chicago brought out a larger concourse of

the chief oflicer of Tam many was last night a prisoner under one of his own deputies having boen convicted of conspiracy in obtaining a fraudulent di from his wife The case is one of tho most remarkable on record and altogether without a parallel Flack was a wealthy man when lie entered politics and has be come still wealthier since His political am bition was said to be almost unbounded Ho reckoned on serving a term as sheriff and then becoming either mayor of the city as Grant had done or succeeding to him as Governor There was A strong likelihood that his political ambition would be grati fied for he ruled tho political machine and stood well with people generally He had lived in tho city practically his whole life and had a host of friends yet to one sot he was known as Raymond and to another as Flack His wife a simple affectionate woman ho had practically deserted twenty years ago and during that tlmo had lived mostly with a Mrs Sarah Cherry or Ray mond and by her had a son now a well grown young man Things wero going perfectly to Flacks satisfaction when one day tho papers an nounced the fact that Mrs Flack was suing her husband for a divorce on the ground of adultery This Mrs Flack denied Then came to light tho great conspiracy which led to tho trial just closed It was shown that Flack and son had conspired to geta divorce from Mrs Flack without her knowl edge had fraudulently procured her signa ture to a petition for a divorce pretending that it was an agreement to represent as to alimony employed an attorney to represent her produced witnesses supposedly her friends who testified against Flack and even brought forward a woman who per sonated the wronged wife The matterwas carried forward by the aid of Judge Book staver who passed on the case referring it to Lawyer Meoks a friend of the Flacks who up to this time had borne a clear record but who is now convicted as a felon At the trial Flack was represented by exJudge Fullertou charge of the prosecution in the Beocher case and an other brilliant attorney named Russell The people were represented by a hitherto unheardof young man named GolY who has made much name for himself m this case as another man JDclancey Nicoll made in the famous boodle alderman cases The testimony was conclusive against Flack and his coconspirators The defense relied on testimony which tho judge threw out Flackrefused to take the stand but his son did and mad a the case more hopeless than before by admitting to numerous perjuries Colonel Fellows made one of the greatest speeches of his life for the prosecution flay ing Flack and his son for their fiendish conduct as he characterized it Tho defense took the only ground that it could a justifi cation of Flacks conduct on the ground that it was no harm to keep a mistress and rather honorable for him to want to marry her so as to legitimize his offspring As to Flacks uufaitJif uluess Russell said Why there are many men having im proper relations with women who are yet decent reputable There was Sir Alex ander Cookburn LordChief Justice of Eng had a mistress and six children by her and who was yet received into society the fact being known I could name hundreds of men unfaithful to the marital relationship but they did not offend against the eleventh be found out I know men of this kind who are honor able truthful and upright He then paid this compliment to the press Divorces have been granted by the hundreds of thousands for just such cause as this Papers have been kept secret and tho reporters have beenexcluded from their examination always but some how or other the case turned up Flack against Flack The newspapers were dull there were no swells killing swells politics did not afford excitement business was down and the circulation was falling off Something must be done to cry an extra in the street and so reporters wero pressed into this case They got hold of Mrs Flack and had her judgment perverted and so it was gotton up by the newspapers as a sensation and a hue and cry has been Mrs Raymond Flacks mistress was in dicted with the others but she was sent out of the city in time to avoid arrest and trial To her Flack can blame bis disgrace After living an unholy life for many years she suddenly became religious and joined the Episcopal church This did not however alter her relations with Flack but made herpavetheway to fix things up decently and she insisted on Flack marrying her This he refused to do though she said she was desirous that her son should become an Episcopal clergynmri and she was study ing to that end and she wished him made legitimate She threatened to expose the whole story if he did not raarry her Flack saw then that tho only thing to be done was to get a divorce by fraud and his wife being a Catholic tinalterably opposed to divorce he got his sou whom she dearly loved to play her the vile work was done Governor Hill decided on Mon day to remove Flack and appoint

found out there about the new Land Purchase Bill I found out nothing at he said it is more closely guarded than auv public document over printed since the homo rule The report here is Balfour will introduce tho bill Monday so that it will be as unpalatable to tho Irish landowners as to tuo Irish tenants The be lief prevails among the Irish Tories that the bill will propose to give them only Irish se curity for the payment by tenants of the purchase money on their farms while they want imperial security and wont accept the bill without it In that event Balfour will drop the bill

might not do all things wisely but who seemed to have their particular wekaro at heart Today however the Progressist newspapers discuss the prospects as some what more doubtful and aro full of fore bodings as to what may happen with an un trained Kaiser in the full swing of his power without the restricting counsel Of the old advisers of his grandfather They speak of him as a young man of superabundant nerv ous energy and despotic spirit and they profess to dread the results of his rule This scare is in tho way of a reaction from the natural pleasure which was felt at Bis marcks iron
