gust I. i,
McDonald once held the political
destinies of Chicago in his hand. Hs
amassed great wealth and ruled despoti
cally the under world of the Windy
City. At his deathbed knelt Mrs. Mary
Noonan McDonald, his first wife, who
deserted him to elope-H years ago, who
came to beg hla forgiveness.
Bide by side with her kneeling at the
bed was Dora McDonald, the second
wife, under indictment for the murder
of Webster Guerin. She is to be tried
In October. McDonald directed In bis
will that I2S.000 be deducted from the
share - of the estate set apart for his
second wWe, to defray tha expeaaea of
her defense. ' -
"Lucky at cards, unlucky in love," ap
plied -to "Mike'1 McDonald, perhaps,
more than to any other-man that ever
lived, lie was the west's- greatest
gambler. He ran "straight"- games as
well aa "brace" ones, and ha made for
tunes -playing . against other men's
gambling houses. Whenever he touched
a card It literally turned to gold. .
But -he waa never happy. Tie married
two women, and both deserted him. The
first left him and eloned with 'an' ex-
oommunlcated 'priest. . The ' priest' de
serted her In France, and she returned
to Chicago, to be welcomed and for

He remarried soon after. , taking aa his

player, who deserted the athlete for the
gammer, wno was now m millionaire. -For
10 years they lived together.
Then the city was startled ' when she
shot and - killed Webster ' Guerin. . her
young protege. -
"McDonald's estate will amount to be
tween 11,100,000 and 12,000.000. It la
expected that there will be a contest
between the first and second wives of
McDonald for the bulk of the fortune.

of an unldenUfied corpse of a murdered

The pockets of the corpse had been ri

throw llftht upon the identity of the
victim. To all appearances the man waa
a railroad grader from the Milwaukee

who had come to town following payday
and had fallen prey to a gang of thugs

come to Butte for a good time after
