: Defendant Denies Charges ami
Declares He Was Victim of
Tongue Lashing.
Edwin Clifford McCuIIough, importer
and exporter and head of E. C. Mc
Cullough & Co., against whom Justice
Erianger in the Supreme Court last week
entered an order that he pay to his wife
*300 a week alimony and $15,000 coun
j sel fee* pending outcome of her suit for
separation, has denied under oatli many
, of his wlfc'3 charges.
? Concerning th<. automobile accident of
! !a?t June in which Mrs. McOullough
| sustained fractures of both legs and her
?laughter, Louise, 15 years old, wan
? killed, Mr. MeCullough in answering
? affidavit swore : ,
"Deponent further says on oath that
I the oar "vhloh he had supplied to his
family was a very high geared car.
. That his daughter was joung and ho
j otnted to his wife that, nothwithstand
| ing the separation, l^e would permit her
to keep and use tlie car upon the aole
condition that she would not permit
J their daughter Louise to operate it.
"As soon as phe ascertained his view
point In regard to this matter she did us
usual, namely, insisted upon the daugh
i t.er I.<oulse operating the car. with lite
i result that while she was so engaged.
; "nrier the mother's directions and to
b? contrary to deponent's wlahes, being
: inexperienced and Inexpert, she lost con
trol of the car. it ran into a tree, which
resulted in killing the daughter and very
| fteriouaiy injuring the plaintiff, which
J caused her to be confined' to a hospital
i for many months
Bfiit of Hospital Trrutmrnt.
i "Notwlthstan dlug the estrangement
j between them, deponent visited her at
; tlie hospital dally, provided her not only
! with the met expert physicians, but
I with the most skilled rjid efficient
! ruraea. and did everything possible to
make her corrfortable and to restore her
to her wonted health."
Attached to Mr. McCullough's affi
i davit and made a part of Ihe record Is
| A letter he v. rote to his wife last Decem
: ber. In which he ?aid:
j "You knew T had always warned you
never to let Ixju'.sh drive the automobile,
| and 1 am firmly convinced that you let
i her do no just because I did not want
i her to do It. Thus she lest her life and
i the responsibility rcstn on you."
There is nothing in the court papers
sustaining' the widely, published report
, that at the time of the accident the
girl's mother had directed her to sur
render til a wheel to the chauffeur.
I Another Inaccuracy has represents!
i Mrs. McCullough nj charging that her
i husband "beat her, knocked her down
I and kicked her while she lay prostrate"
j because of her refusal to participate in
I a scheme whereby her husband "In
i order to gain a business advantage over
another man attempted to use me (Mrs.
! McCullough) in a situation to compro
| mlsi this man.''
Mr. NfcCullourh also alleges that he
I was sublectcd to "constant and terrific
I tongue lashinps."
>fl*np on Msirtairr Dates.
| Tn Ills principal annwerlng deposition
Mr. McCullough averred that the affi
j davit submitted by his wife, the plain
i tiff, "is replete with inaccuracies ??nd
i misstatements. Thexe," he adds, "de
1 ponenL attributes cither to an obsession
j or mental aberration, or both." She in
i .listed, he say3, th.it she was only 13
; when she was married, but, "Instead of
; being married on the 21st day of April,
1898, they were married on the -9th day
of April, 1887." The date of the birth
of her son Ronald, now deceased, he
swore, she similarly persisted always in
giving a? In August. 1894, whereas Ron
ald actually wa? born on August 15.
1888. Documentary evidence supports
these assertions of the true dates.
Thomas B. Felder of counsel for Mr.
McCullough presented corroboratory de
positions by TV. Morgan Shunter, for
merly American financial adviser to She
Persian Government: Julius S. H- Is,
I president of th" Manila Trading and
.Supply Company; Clifford B. Harmon
and others.
I Mr. McCullough's reputation anions
. his frlendc was stated thus by Julius
S. Reld, after a friendship of twenty
years: "That he Is a gentleman of very
high standing strictest Integrity, depen
dability and sobriety, and that he known
his reputation a.' a man nnd a gentle
man to be excellent." The depositions
of Mr. Harmon and others were in like
vein.
