"I met him to-day on Olive street near Seventh street. He promised to meet me half an hour later at Huyler's. I went at once to Judge & Dolph's drug store on Lo cust street and purchased the carbolic acid, telling tho clerk I wanted it for disinfect ing purposes. "Then 1 returned to Huyler's to wait for him. I had the acid put in a. small jar, such as is used for salves. As I was talking to Cole I unscrewed the lid. and, thinking I had a good chance, dashed the acid at his lace. He threw up' his arm, and this caused most of the fluid to" rebound in my face. "The pain was fearful. I followed him across the street and ran into a woman, knocking her down, as I entered the Chem ical building. If Cole got anything ho do ssnfed it. I am not sorry."

I did not $ know he was married until after he failed to meet mo on SunJay night. If -he got anything, he deserved It. r am not sorry. "WILLIAM P. fOLE'S STATKMKNT. 4 I got Into this affair through my own folly. My family have been In the East all summer, and I met the girl while at one of the summer gar- dens. She Faid her name was Nellie Martin. 1 never knew her by any oth- er name, and believed she lived on Old Manchester avenue. I am sorry it has happened, but consider myself lucky to get out of the thing as I did with both of my eyes untouched. I minutes. I notieed that she carried a small package in her hand. She had. Just seated herself at the tabl when the man en tered. They carried on a heated conver sation. We could not hear what they said." "We had turned to wait upon other cus tomers and the first wo knew of the acid throwing was when we smelled the fumes. Turning around 1 saw the cup lying shat tered on the floor. The man had run out the door and the woman was following him." At the City Hospital last night Doctor Nletcrt stated that he hopes to save hi patient's eyes, but considers the task dif ficult. The girl will be disfigured for life," he declared. Doctor Campbell, senior sur geon, dressed the wounds, and he coincided in Doctor NIetert's statement. When Cole left Doctor Logan's office he gave hla name as T. W. EIoc. This, he later explained, is his name. Cole, spelled backwards. Miss Clark Insisted that her name was Nellie Martin until she was asked to ex plain why she carried several visiting cards with the name Nellie Clark In her purse which J5e left at the confectioner's. Then she" admitted her correct name. She begged when taken to the City Dis pensary that sho might be taken home. In stead of to the City Hospital. She stated that she had lived In St. Louis but one year and said she came herefrom Kansas, but refused to give the name of 'the city ori town. The police have preferred a charge of disturbing tho peace against the girl, as Colo rcfused'to swear out' a warrant charg ing her with throwing tho'"ac!d. At No. 5S10 Delmar boulevard, where Cole claimed to reside, llvesthe family of W, M. Dell. At that house and others In the neighborhood no one could b found who knew Cole. (; MIL'S MOTHER MAKES A STATEMENT. At No. 5U North Theresa avenue an elder ly woman stated that the young woman who was then at the hospital was her daughter. "Sho works for the Bell Tele phone Company as an operator," said Mrs. .Clark. "To-day she told me she did not feel well and said she was not going to work. "Cole has been coming to our house about two months. Of course we did not know ho was married. He was Introduced to my daughter at a party given, I believe, by a' young lady in the West End. At least that it what I have been told. 1 suppose my daughter ascertained that he was married and decided to avenge herself with the acid. I do not blame' her." Officials of the Bell telephone office say that MI3S Clark had been employed there as an exchango operator for about six weeks. Misf Clark was released from the City Hospital last night on a bond signed "by Itobert V. Patterson, No. KM Locust street! She signed the name Nellie Martin to the bond and attached her address 'as No. 2SH Manchester avenue. LEAD PRODUCERS TO FIGHT TROST. Plan to Prevent Control of the Out put by the Smelting Combine.
