A week Jater Miss Cox went to St.
Paul for a visit.
She testified Edwards sent her a
ticket from St. Paul. His testimony
was that he gave her $5 for inci
dentals, but no ticket.
Miss Cox told a story in her breach
of promise suit of going to a fashion
able St Paul restaurant with Ed
wards and waking up the next morn
ing in a disreputable house. Edwards
did not de.ny this, but the government
needed evidence that he paid her way
to another state to obtain the indict
ment. The breach of promise suit was in
stituted in St. Paul before the white
slave indictment was forthcoming.
The case was remanded for a new
trial. In the second trial Miss Cox
won judgment of $17,500.
In the interval between the two
trials Charles DeWoody, an Investi
gator for the department of justice,
looked into the case for its bearing
on the Mann act. The United States
district attorney there refused to
prosecute after an investigation.
It is alleged that De Woody ob
tained a confession from Miss Cox in
which she told of intimacy with sev
eral other men before meeting Ed
wards. This, it is said, for some rea
son, was suppressed. This confession,
if true, might have defeated tne wo
man's breach of promise suit.
