In the hospital inoigue until S ao o'clock.
Then a mun, giving his name as W.

He at once leoognlzed the lemaln ns

man was Oakley's wife's cousin. When
she lett the house at " o'clock In the
attellioon she stated that she "would

ttue facts of the cae as gleaned fiom
c onveisatlon with Mr. and Mis Oak

he found the note ftoni bis wife on the

She leleucd In an Indliect way to the

the statement of Hnglneei Samuel Cobb
ol the passenger train, gave a clew as
to the leal nature ol the accident. En

She was Letweerr the tracks but when

she lrilscd her arms to her face, as if

This statement of the engineer .sug
gested .suicide and the rumor of a do
mistic niiituie went to confirm the
Idea. AVherr a Tribune reporter reached
the Oakley home at 11 o'clock last night
Mi. Oakley refused to allow the teporter
further Iriiriess to the house than the
hall. He seemed fear till of something
He admitted that there wasu letter and
that Hilton, the husband, hud found It

No power could get the letter last
night, They seemed stury that the news
of It hud gotten out at ull. Mr. Oakley
admitted, however, that there was a

Oakley talked In a manner showing
uneasiness and all the time was listen

Ho didn't know much about the dead
woman or her family, he said.
AVherr told that a woman had called
at the Delawate and Hudson station

anything about the Identity of the wo
man who called at the station. Mis,
Oakley had not been out of the bouse,
in Ithei had any of lier f i lends, she said.
Who the woman was Is a mystery.
An examination of the woman's body
by Coioner I.ongstieet, the hospital hui
gions and the Juiy at the hospital
morgue indicated the position she might
have occupied In her nervy deed. Ap

No larger or mole lashloiiuble audi

saw Caroline MIskel-Hoyt Irr "A Con

was obviously wiltterr tor Mrs. Iloyt
by her husband, but is nevel theless
piobnbly one of the best things that
Mr. Iloyt has given to the stuge. It
tells In a way that will set people
thinking of the long train of evils that
follow lu the wake of the efforts of wo
men to letoim politics. The nianlsli
ness of "Aunt Jim" and her co-r etor m
ers was enough to appal the most cour
ageous and devoteel woman who ovet
was Insplied to battle for equal lights
for her sisters.

In the specifications which read that

can move that the Dundonald asphalt
Is not "equally as suitable" as the lake
