\"i CANNOT ANSWER"
KRAUSE'S REPLY TO MRS. CHRISTIE Mrs. William Christie of Douglas, ! whoso husband Edward Krauso Is uc <:u8cd of kidnaping audwthen murder ing, perhaps Is the only person to in terview Krause at the federal Jail out side of his guards and counsel. Mrs. [Chrlstlo says sho asked Krauso: "?What did you do with Christie?" "I cannot tell you," Krause replied. "Why did you take him away?" Mrs. Christie again asked. "I connot tell | you." Krause replied. The woman ! who was deprived of her husband less ; than three weeks after she had mar | ried him implored Krause to tell her ! what he had done with her husband, but the answer was always the Bame. ; The slight shaft of suspicion which ! was aimed at Mrs. Christie when her ! husband was lured away from Tread woll was due to the fact that her namo had been ltnkod with that of Krause. as an "affair," In which Krause was the wooer. But when Mrs. Chrlstlo appeared in the com missioner's court last week at Krause's hearing, she banished im mediately in the opinion of all thoso who Baw her, any suspicion that In the Krauso case she was nothing more than a good, hard-working woman who wanted to know what had bo come of her husband, and who asked nothing but that justice bo done. Kazis Krauczunas, counsel for Krause, loft for Seattle Sunday, and docs not expect to return until after January 1. He said ho would at that time press the appeal to the district court from the decision of Commis sioner Marshall which sentenced Krause to a year on a charge of im personating an officer.
