gaged man in all this region. There have
been eighteen girls who have stated since
his escape that they were engaged to be
married to Deacon, and that the wedding

The most distressing iart of tie whole

of a chiid to Mrs. Herman W. Gedicke,
whose husband. Dr. Gedicke, lied sud
denly in his office in Newark a 'ew days

some other woman's infant, i:i view of
the effort which the widow aud her
brother are making to get the property,
aud the fight to sustain the will by Dr.
Gedicke's bister and her husba:id. The
child was born, aud is a health- j:irl. The

CmcAGO, March 30.-When Senator
tockbr.dge, who was one of the Hearst
funeral committee, was shown Mrs.
Gougar's alleged statements as to the
wine bibbing on the train en route east, he
asked with an air of surprise: "Is she re
sponsible?" Then he went on: "Her
story is absurd-all bosh. The char-e.s
she makes can probably be accounted for
in the lact that the Grafton train was de
layed some hours at El p;.so becan the
members of our party desired to go across
while. Wm'e being detained their train
was side-trucked Inside ours aud she may
have seen us eating our dinner throu-h
the car windows.
t Particle of Hilarity.
''.Vine served? Well, yes, I suppose
m.iyue there was some wine, table wine
imbibed, but there was not the slightest
on of hilarity exhibited. We were as or
derly as could ba desired. On our return
we all purchased a case or two of Cali
fornia w ine to bring back with us. There
were perhaps a dozen or more cases
bought, a number of boxes containing
orauges we got at Los Angeles may have
been mistaken lor liquor cases, for our
tram had a good many orange boxes on
board." The senator said that the favor
ite drink was app dlinaris water, and that
Senator Vance was not on board. It is
fair to state that since returning home
Mrs. Gougar has repudiated that inter
view. She indorsed every word of it, how
ever. KNIGHTS OF LAEOF5 NOT WANTED.
