THE MAN THAT BOB INGER
SOLL IS DEFENDING.
Brady the ''Martyr "
"It's a lie, made out of whole
cloth!" hissed Brady in court to
day. He was called to the witness
stand by the Star route defense
late this afternoon. He is a burly,
thick-set man, with a very short
neck. His face is coarse-featured,
dark; forehead low; eyes small,
graj', twinkling; nose piggish,
thick, flaring; cheek bones high
and flushed with color; white mus
tache and beard of a rusty, sand'
color hide the lower part of the
lace, and bristle around the full
neck to the suit of coarse, spike
brown hair, matted down upon the
top of the bullet-shaped head.
Brady's face is that of a huge
eater, a lover of smutty stories,
and a free circle of loud-mouthed
jokers. He would be ill at ease in
a party of gentlemen. When in
the Postofiice Department he had
but few associates outside the con
tractors and the department. He
has, however, in spite of his flesh,
the energy of a lunatic. He is of
the type of men who perspire at
every pore when the thermometer
is below zero. He has a hijrh
temper and sucli an utter disregard
for the good or bad opinions of
others that he has been restrained
by none of the influences which
sway ordinary men. With his
thick, rhinoceros bide he would
have been content to wade through
any slough of scandal, provided in
the end he should reach safety for
his money and person. When the
Star route scandal first broke out
Brady sniffed contemptuously and
talked about blackmail. Then ho
laughed derisively at the Congres
sional investigation. That was
conducted by men of his own kind
and was easily met. He bought
himself one of the finest houses in
"Washington, and set up a hand
some road "wagon and a gay light
stepping team, with a coachman
and tiger in blue livery. He tried
to give dinners and live down his
disgrace, but even the hide of a
rhinoceros fails sometimes. A few
politicians, without any too much
care for their reputations, consent-
ed to eat his dinners and drink his
x wines, but they soon became dis
couraged. His horrible attempts
at convivality gave all his guests
an indigestion. Soon every one
fell away, and then "Brady was left
alone. When he drove out -with a
shinning silk hat shoved down
over his matted hair to his srreat
ears, he never looked to the right
nor to the left. Sunk into the
folds of his ill-fitting overcoat, he
drove out, pointed at by the peo
ple on the street as one -would in
dicate a successful retired burglar.
3Sven his coachman and tiger ap
peared to have a wholesome dis
ilike for their -master.
'Gradually even Brady grew
tired of his solitude. Each day
the interminable coils of evidence
joined one more twist about him,
until he saw his dearly beloved
property in danger, and the walls
of the penitentiary casting a shad
ow across his path. One day he
went out to drive in an unusually
pensive frame of mind. In the
course of his drive he came along
the Bladensburg road, where con
Ticts from the workhouse are
sometimes sent in gangs to work
upon the highway. He stopped
the team for a moment and gazed
"with a surly curiositv upon the-
hideous garment of the brutal
looking felons. Then suddenly,
as if awakening from a disagreea
ble dream, he roared eut: "Drive
on, by God! Drive as if h I
were after you. Don't stop a
minute longer!" It was the day
following that the animal strength
of the man reasserted itself. He
wrs in a corner, but he knew how
to fight. He would not lie down
until the last blow was struck.
First his great house was sold, and
the cash (S125,000) stowed away
in a safe place. Then, with the
energy of a steam-engine, he pro
deeded to realize from all his
v property investments.
In & week's time the wealth of
4his rich man -was beyond the law's
reach. Now he has only the safe
ty of his body to protect. He
went on to the stand to-day in the
interest of that protection. With
what sullen rage did he strike the
bar in front of him as he hoarsely
denied every scrap of evidence
brought against him, cunningly
jeering at the half-witted, feeble
minded, utterly worn out, and vacant-looking
jurymen as he talked.
What will be the effect of his tes
timony can be accurately estimat
ed. It is merely an elaborate plea
of not guilty He will fight to
the end, appealing toevery tech
nicality. Should all fail, be will
run like a wild boar over and
through any one who tries to stop
him in his mad rush for a hiding
place. "Washington Special to
Slaying a "Wild Man.
The celebrated wild man of
Camas Prairie was killed recently
by some parties while traveling
through the prairie. While the
travelers were camped in the foot
hills on the edge of the prairie,
one of them, named Micklehaney,
went out a few hundred yards
from camp to kill some ducks,
taking with him a shotgun loaded
with large shot. When a couple
of hundred yards from camp the
"Wild man of the Camas" jumped
from his hiding place, and after
running for a short distance stop
ped and looked at Micklehaney
through his large, clear eyes for a
moment; then, with a shriek that
struck terror to the heart of the
hunter, and caused him to shudder
as the echo resounded through
the forest, the man with the fero
city of a savage beast of the jun
gle made for Micklehaney with
such fierceness that in order to in
sure his own safety he emptied
both barrels of the gun into him,
when he fell, apparently dead.
Micklehaney went to him, when
the strange being began to
revive, when he put his foot on
the man's neck and called to his
comrades to bring an ax, which
they did with all possible haste.
The man escaped just as they ar
rived, and with a pitiful moan re
gained his feet and started to run.
The axe was thrown at him, and
as he turned his head to look back
it struck him in the center of the
forehead and he dropped lifeless
to the ground.
On examination he was found
to be rather tall, with full, clear
eyes, he had an extraordinary
large head; appeared to be about
45 years ot age, although not a
gray hair could be seen. The
wavy black hair on his head hung
low down on his body, and his
full beard was about two inches
and a half long. The body was
also covered with a thick growth
of hair about two inches long.
This was also black and very fine.
The finger and toe nails were two
inches long, and resembled claws
more than nails. He was wrapped
in a long robe made of rabbit
skins, which, though the tailoring
on it was not a subject of admira-
ration, was well suited for the
most bitter cold weather. These
skins were sewed together by
On examining the place from
which he made his appearance, it
was found that he had a very
comfortable bed, which was made
from the soft bark of sagebrush.
It was under an overhanging rock
and -well protected from the wind.
Near the bed were two rabbits,
which had most likely been killed
About ton years ago an insane
stage driver left Boise City, and
has never since been heard from.
The "Wild Man of Camas" may
be the same, having taken up his
abode in the desolate prairie, but
seldom visited by white men. He
could very easily secure food there,
as the country is filled with rab
bits both winter und summer,
which could be easily killed hy an
expert throwing stones. The
"Wild Man of Camas," has, since
first seen in 1S85, been dreaded
by the lonely traveler and pros
pector, who will be relieved to
know that he is dead. BeUevue

Northern Pacific Freights.
Upon the publication of the
synopsis of the agreement between
the Northern and Union Pacific
railroad companies to divide terri
tory, the editor of the Union
wrote to Mr. Henry Vilard, presi
dent of the Northern Pacific, and
asked him pertinent questions in
regard to railroad construction and
management and the effect of the
new agreement upon the interests
of Walla "Walla. The following
clear, explicit and satisfactory re
ply was received last evening:
Xobtiii:rx Pacikc Hailhoad
Xkw York, March 17, 1883.
P. B. Jonxsox, Esq, Walla Walla,
Dear Sir: Your letter of Feb
ruary 21st came duly to hand. I
regret that I have not been able
to answer it any earlier. In re
ply to your several questions I
Questiox 1. Will the road be
extended from Blue mountain to
intersect the Baker City branch
Answer. It is a part of our
construction programme to com
plete the Blue mountain branch to
a point of intersection with the
Baker City brancli at the earliest
practicable moment, but I am not
sufficiently familiar with the en
gineering difficulties to say, defi
nitely, whether it will be done in
time for the next harvest.
Questiox 2. In establishing
freight rates will the policy of the
Northern Pacific and 0. Pi. & N.
Co. be like that followed by the
Axswer. I would say in gen
eral terms that the policy of our
companies will not be like
that pursued by the Central
Pacific Railroad company in
reference to interior points. The
Northern Pacific and 0. R. & N.
companies do not propose to
charge local rates that will prevent
the development of distributing
points in the interior. In other
words, to use your example, it is
not the purpose of the manage
ment to charge rates to and from
Walla Walla equal to the rates
between St. Paul and Portland,
plus the rates from Portland to
Walla Walla. I caunot at this
time, in advance of the completion
of the Northern Pacific railroad,
say precisely what the rates will
be, but have no hesitation in say
ing that they will be so adjusted
that Walla Walla will retain the
custom of the country naturally
tributary to the place.
I expect to visit Oregon and
Washington territory during the
spring, in company with our
superintendent of traffic, and I
hope to have the pleasure of dis
cussing these matters in detail with
the people of Walla Walla.

Okxts: About nine years ago I had a
child two years old and almost dead. The
doctor I had attending her could not tell
what ailed her. I asked him if he did not
think It was worms. He said no. How
ever, this did not satisfy me, as I fell con
vinced in my own mind that she had. I
obtained a bottle of IK. C. McLANE'.S
I gave her a teaspoonful in the mornins
andanothcrntnight,aftcrwhich shej aed
seventy-two worms and was a well child.
Since then I have never been without It
in my family. The health of my cii.liiren
remained so good that I had m-glit ted
watching their actions until uIkmu three
weeks ago, when two of them pre-ortcd
the same sickly appearance that Fanny
did nine years ago. So I thought it mast
be worms, and went to work at once with
a bottle of DR. C. McLANE'S YEK3II
1TJGE between four of my children, their
ages being as follews: Alice, 8 years; ('hur
ley, 4 years; Emma, G yean: : John.Oyears.
Now comes the result: Alice and Ktiiiua
curie out nil rlght,but Charley pased forty
live and Johnny about sixty worm's. The
result was so gratifying that I spent two
das In showing the wonderful effect of
yo:.r Vermifuge around Utica, and now
have the worms on exhibition if my store.
