INSULT CASE CONTINUED
John B. Irwin, millionaire
clubman accused of mashing by
Mrs. George W. Barrowman,
pretty little 19-year-old bride,
was right peeved when his case
was called in Judge Going's court
Irwin demanded a jury trial.
He demanded it loudly ahd clam
orously, and it was granted and
the case continued until Monday.
Also Irwin was exceedingly
anxious to tell how it all came
about. Mrs. Barrowman's charge,
the stocy of her husband and the
story oMr-s. C. R. Hattersley of
1332 Granville av., are all false
Irwin says so.
Irwin also has discovered why
iMrs. Barrowman brought the
charge against him. It was just
because she wanted to test her
husband's love, see if b,e would do
for her and die for her Irwin
How Irwin came to be pos
sessed of all these remarkable
facts (?) is not quite clear. But
he did, and he is willing to tell
anyone all about it, but he is not
willing to be photographed.
. When Irwin came out of the
South Clark street court today
there were about a dozen expert
newspaper photographers wait
ing for him. Irwin pulled his coat
in front oL his face and mara-
thoned down Clark street.
Mrs Barrowman was in court
today. She is a pretty little blonde
woman. She is the daughter of.
Dr. A. L. Nye of Des Moines, and
a niece of the late humorist, Bity
Mrs. C. R. Hattersley, who
lives in the same apartment
building as the Barrowrnans, has
largely corroborated Mrs, Bar
"Mrs Barrowman," said Mrs.
Hattersley today, "came home on
the run Thursday evening. She
seemed very excited. I spoke to
her. She said a man had annoyed
her all afternoon, and pointed out
a man who was standing on the
corner as the one. I could not see
the man clearly from the window
and could not identify him now."
