Continued from l'nce One
Horter was In Pittsburgh snme wneks
ago when tho man was arrested on n
charge of blgnmy. This charge wa
preferred by tho Baker woman when tho
much-wooed dentist got a now affinity
and went to Sparrow Lnke with Mlsu
Smith, according to her story to the do.
When Miss linker wrote to Horter, re
proaching him for leaving her, she told
the detectives, ho sent a reply saying:
"llrnco up, llttlo girl, I'll noon bo with
you forever."
Some time later, Bhe dectared, Horter
nnd Miss Smith returned to Pittsburgh.
The dentist declined to give up his latest
atllnlty altogether, nnd Miss i uk r nl
liTm arrested. She charged ha had mar
ried hcr'wltliuut obtaining a divorce irom
his wlfo In this city. That charge was
Btlll ponding when Detectives Le Strange
nnd O'Neill nrrived In Pittsburgh. Miss
linker admitted to them that Horter had
not married her and bo could not b
punished on the bigamy chargo.
The detectives had tho man discharged
and arretted hlni on the old chargo of de
sertion. From 11183 Baker they learned
tho alleged story of his life prior to his
meeting with her. Some time within tho
lastllalf dozen years, she told them, a
wealthy married woman of Kansas City
had met Horter. She fell In love with
him. After a brief courtship by the
woman sho Induced him to fleo with her
to Central America, according to Miss
In one of tho cities of that turbulent
country tho Kansas City woman estab
lished her alllnlty nnd there they lived for
some time, nventually Horter grew tired
of tho woman, Miss Baker said, and left
her. He returned to Philadelphia, nnd
mnnnged to become reconciled to his wife.
All went well until Miss Baker appeared
on tho scene. At that time, according to
tho detectives, Doctor Horter hnd an of
flco In tho central part of the city, nnd
had established a good practice. Miss
Baker acknowledged to the detectives that
she fell In love with him nt first sight.
Within a short time the pair camo to
an ngreement, Miss Baker said. Who did
tho wooing sho did not say. but the re
sult was that they left Philadelphia nnd
went West together. For more than tvo
years, Miss nnker asserts, they traveled
all about the country. Finally they land
d at Zlon City, nnd Dr. Horter beenme
a disciple of Alexander Dowle and later
a mil later In his church.
After almost a year In that city the
pair went to Pittsburgh. Tho Kansas
City woman here Intruded again, accord
ing to Miss Baker, who says she wrote
to Doctor Horter offering him JH0O If
he would go to Kansas City and live with
her. Miss Baker says she Induced him
to refuse.
Tho detectives also give Miss Baker as
authority for tho statement that the
Kansas City woman rcpeatodly tried to
Induco tho dentist to seek a divorce so
he could marry her, but ho declined.
The contract with the Baker woman, ac
cording to the detectives, Is as follows:
"First. You must bo true. v
"Second. You must cut nil ties with
your friends and relations. There must
bo no communications from them to you
or from you to them.
"Third. You must bo devoted to my In
terest and be willing to sacrifice your
life Itself, If necessary, to further our
"Fourth. No lies or deception, no mat
ter how trivial, are to bo countenanced.
Tho dentist, who Is a cousin of Hiram
Horter, president of the Police Beneficiary
Association, liad another contract with
Miss Smith. It follows:
"I resolve from this date not to have
or receive any communication from my
Story Told of Daring Deed by French
LONDON, Jan. 20. A dispatch to the
Chronicle from northern France says that
a youth, In his early teens, named Tho
rel, won a trench from the Germans
"It was near Ypres," saya the dis
patch, "that Thorel's regiment was or
dered to retake ground that the French
had lost a little while before. The first
attack failed, and the second attack being
attempted was when it was decided In
view of the difficulties of the ground to
postpone the charge until night. Thorel
was In the front rank. Carried along by
his enthusiasm, he did not hear the order
to retire and continued to dash forward,
believing be was being followed by his
"At last he reached a deserted trench,
and sprang intd it. Then when thero was
time to look around he found he was
alone. Retreat was Impossible, for as he
peeped ahead, he saw crowds of Germans
coming and going In another trench only
25 yards away. The time had come to act,
Making a rest for his rlfls under a shel
ter, ho brought his sights to bear on a
German nnd pulled tho trigger.
"Tho German fell, then a second and a
third. A brisk volley came from, the ar
man trench, but Thorel waa under good
cover and was not hit. Ha continued fir
ing rapidly, and mora than 1G0 of his 200
cartridge had been expended when the,
Germans, persuaded by his activity thaj.
the trench was strongly held, bolted to
another position further to their rear."

"Hotel do Gink" Is tho namo by which
n big free hotel for down-nnd-outerB In
Now Yorkls known. It Is the product of
humor nnd benevolence combined. A few
days ago Jeff Dnvls, "King of tho Ho
boes," n wnndcrer with nn Imagination
nnd no end of nerve, walked Into tho of.
flco of the Custodian of Tubllc Buildings
In Now York and asked for tho keys of
a vacant Blx-story loft building nt Worth
and Center streets, which Is to bo torn
down by tho city to make way for a now
courthouse. Davis said he wanted to
open It for n shelter for homeless men.
The Commissioner saw the point nnd
handed Davis the keys. Ho then referred
bin action to the Corporation Counsel for
nn opinion nnd the lawyer put the de
cision off until spring.
Davis named the place the "Hotel de
Gink," and gavo n hard bed to 23M men
tho first night. The homeless keep the
place clean, and a philanthropist whose
Identity Is not revealed furnishes the coal
for the heating plant. The news of the
enterprise was sproad abroad nnd 375 men
from tho hotel havo got Jobs. Tho au
thorities nt the New York City Frco Em
ployment olllce say that bringing the un
employed togothor In a great centre has
been a great boon to the men nnd has
enabled the city to do a greater good
than It could otherwise.
This city has a "Hotel do Gink," with
all the trimmings, only It Is olllclally
known by another name. It Is a four
story factory building at tho northwest
corner of 12th and Hamilton streets, and
last night more thnn 200 men Blept there
on paper spread upon tho pine Moors.
Thero wns not a man among them with
the odor of "booze" upon him.
Tho house hns been open nlrio days,
and there has not been a sign of trouble
among tho patrons. Among them Is a
former clergymnn, a former well-known
carpet merchant, students who havo been
working their way through various
schools and havo had to wait until times
The founders of tho homo Insist upon
the preservation of their anonymity, nnd
will only say that tho Idea originated
In tho Sunday Breakfast Association.
Representatives of the society went to
the city government nnd naked for the
use of a largo factory building In ono
of tho poor neighborhoods of tho city,
but were too late, for tho heating appa
ratus had already been removed prepara
tory to razing the building. Then private
contributions hired the four-story loft
building, now tho Hotel de Gink.
Tho first morning that tho place was
open ono of t'no railroads had sudden
need for workmen. Word was sent to
this shelter and tho watchman wakened
to men and sent them out. All but one
of them was placed that clay In a good
Job, and the now shelter became a pop
ular place. It Ib In contemplation to open
tho top story of the building, ns the man
agers now have to turn men away.
Director Cooke said today that many re
quests had come to him for buildings for
use as shelters, but that there were
none available except two large ones at
