DEFENCE IN COURT
The humorous phases of the story of th* woman
who has been swindling Harvard graduates in this
nnd other cities are beginning to com.- to light.
From Ihe latest developments lt appears that the
money which the adventuress recured from Kind
ar 1 generous Harvard m*n here last week haa
been applied to help defend her husband In cou ri
on the charges of other Harvard vlf-tims Lr. Chi
cago, The grotesqueness of (his condition of af?
fairs hos th bled the sense of humor of the Har?
vard men here, mid they were laughing about lt
yeaterday, even though they did remember their
"loans" with a pang.
The Investigations continued by a Tribune re?
porter brought other things to light yMterday,
among whleh was the fact that this, woman and
her husband are an old-time pair of rogues, and
have been "working" Harvard men and Grand
Army posts for the last tfcn years. Th* name f.f
the man ls Edwaral Robbins Howe, Harvard. '(A.
and by his classmates, nearly avery on* of whom
has suffered by him, be has been familiarly known
as "Ned" Howe. There were two men by UM
name of Howe In the class of 'C4, but Neal ls the
one who has gained notoriety, and who ls now
languishing in ihe Cook County Jail In Cl
Ned, according to the account In the '64 class book,
written by himself, was born In 1S4S, being the
son of Uriah Tracy and .Sarah Templeman I
i'lge) How*. After being graduated from Harvard
lie studied in Germany mri Prance, and then re?
turning to this country in 1*-C^ held places of trust
In Western mines, and In a Pan Francisco busl?

?oo! tired of this and lh*n started in to swindle
Harvard men. "Ned" How--, srho wi* already in*
