The trouble was this: ;. ' '' i .' Miss Potter, or Mrs, Nickerson had taken rooms at 801 Main street. Hall heard of her "presence in Bridgeport and came here, where he obtained a position as an insurance agent." He visited . her regularly, and according to persons who met the couple, they were '.Very affectionate. Then ' her husband, Nickerson, got wind of this and he came to Bridgeport. He com plained 'to the police. At the same time, Mr. Skelly, the landlord, an em ploye 6f the Smith, Egge company, put, her out because of a rumor that bad come to his ears of the marriage. Detective Peter Hall 'was detailed to the, case oil the same morning and he brought Edna, Hall and her husband to police headquarters.-. -" , , - " - , ' At headquarters, Edna declared emphatically that she -refused to live with Nickerson.

There, on Broadway,- Charles St. Clair, - fell a victim to the fascination of Edna. He was known ' as a "man who always. t has a roll." He was a former prize fight er and proprietor of :a- string - of cheap restaurants, besides a small taxicab service. He - was married, but . he fell a victim , to infatuation with the new woman. ' : Rivalry developed between him and Hall. Hall redoubled his attentions, to Edna. He urged her to marry him. She wouldn't and he declared he would kill himself. Finally, through fear of him she said, she was frightened into compliance and October 23, 1914, they . were mar ried. ' ' - On the day of the wedding, St,l Clair drank a bottle of laudanum. , He was carried dying. It was thought, to. hos pital, but his -life was saved through strenuous-medical efforts. . . -: j .; ... It was not long before Hall was un able to support a wide. . Scarcely two months ago their condition became so desperate that she-had I to .look for -a job.. Hall developed tuberculosis, and was too ill to work.. Edna got a posi tion in a drug store at the Grand Cen tral -terminal and demonstrated cos metics. She -received S2'5 a, week and supported Hall.
