Curtain Is Lifted for First Time From Past Life of Mae Butchart; Shame Bared By Hal Armstrong That the whole story of Mae Butchart, insofar as it implicate* Augustus B. Hamer. federal treasury agent, in alleged wrong doings, is a fabrication, and the "hop dream" of a dope addict, wan the inference made by Walter Fulton, in a statement to the jury just before noon Wednesday. • * • The government's curtain concealing the past life of their f tar witness, Mae Butchart, was thrown back Wednesday at the trial of Augustus B. Hamer, federal treasury agent, while an audience jamnvng the courtroom and outside corridor gasped in amazement. For several hours Tuesday afternoon and early Wednes day the girl was on the witness stand undergoing an ordeal of scathing cross-examination by Walter Fulton, defense counsel. Repeatedly Fulton tried to shake her story of her visits to Hamer's office in the postoffice building and to various downtown hotels with him, when, she said, he bartered mor phine and yenshee for her companionship. Every effort of Kulton to go Into the glrl'« put history wu blocked by repeated objection* on the part of Assistant I*. K. Attorney J. F. nor until Wednesday morning. Judge Neterer ruled that her part might be reviewed to tent her credi bility a* a witness. and Kulton for the flmt time broke thru the screen that had ahlelded her. *'.\s a mailer of fact." derlnrrd Kulton. after an hour'* grilling, "you arn under tlie influence of narcotic* this raltiule." "1 am not.'' The girl's tone ira> indignant. "You mnaji to tell this Jnrr that you haie liad no Shot' of 'd«n>e' this morning?" "Vmterttay ?'" "N oi y .-Merday" "Daring the time yon have been held In the immigration station. you have l>een allowed your liberty In the afternoon, to go and come a* you chose. have you not?" Kulton de manded. "1 have been going out some after noons for about a week." "Did you get any nurcotics?" "I did noL" When the gir! resumed the witness stand Wednesday morning she ap peared tired. She was neatly dressed In a dark skirt and brown Jacket trimmed with white lar«. Several times during Kulton's slashing cross-examination she s«m ed to weep, covering lier face with her hands. She sat for some minutes with licwed head. When she looked up again, she was drying her ejes. "Were you ever 'i< Tijuana?" Kul ton asked. "No." "In Idalio^ "Yes." "How long ago?"* "Kour or five years arn " Kulton then dropped this line of questioning. Instead, he asked: "What government officlul brought you up to testify t>efore tl*> grand Jury?" "I don't remember." "Hid the sarno man take you back?" "I don't remember " "When you testified before the grand Jury were you under the in fluence of narcotics?" This question was objected to. The witness was told not to answer. I'll 1 ton then asked: "Was Mrs. Allen your nurse In the detention station?" "Yes," was the answer "l»o you n-member when Ihe man took you bark lie said to Mrs. Allen In give you half a grain of morphine more every <la> because of the way you had testified before the grand Jury?" "I don't remember." "Were you given half a grain ex tra a day?" "Ye*, sir." "Wasn't It because of the splendid way you had testified to the grand Jury?" The witness was not permitted to answer. Kulton continued: "Do you know Kid May?" "No, sir." "Did you ever live at the Brighton hotel?" "I did not." "Didn't you live st the Brighton with .lean Wildman?" Again the wltnen.l was instructed not to anawcr. Kulton produced a letter i TWO CENTS IN SEATTLE "I want to introduce this letter to show the credibility of this witness." Kulton explained, and read from the letter as follows: "Nov. IS, 1921.—Capt. Tenmnt —Dear Sir. Can you locate or inform me as to the whereabouts of my rlotbes, taken to your of fice with Jean Wildman from the Brighton Hotel. 1 am reg istered at (he hotel as Mrs. L» J. McMannan.

"And Is he now In prison*' "Yes." Then she added quickly: "1 didn't live with him." "Vou were at the hotel with him?"* "I was up there." "You knew he had registered for you and himself, and that by 'Mrs.' he meant you?" "Yes." "You lived at the Cordon hotel with A. McStaren?" The girl wiped her eyes. Sh» was told not to answer. "You lived at the Gordon hotel?" (Turn to Page 8. Column t) LAST OB FOR INCOME TAXES "Nobody's going to have a chance to say he wasn't given an oppor tunity to pay his Income tax."' This was the pronouncement mad* Wednesday by C. 1.. Huey. division chief in charge of the Seattle offic* of the Internal revenue bureau. After Wednesday everyone whoa* Income Is large enough to warrant It will be liable to l>e hanged to th« masthead—or something like that—• if he hasn't filed a return, and Huey is going to do his best to save tha citizens of Seattle from such a san guinary fate. The office will close, as usual, at 5 p. in. Wednesday afternoon, but it will l>e reopened at 6:30. and re main open until midnight, "And," Huey declares, "if any body's still in I lie room at mid- ' night, we'll set the rlork back so that we can look after him. In other words every body'H be under the rope if lie gets to the office hj 11:,"i!l:.")!)—but promptly al the stroke of 1? we'll have to cliiw the doors, and accept re turns from no one who Isn't already there." As a matter of fact, according t« Huey, there is little likelihood of an/ great rush Wednesday night, be. cause unemployment and personal exemptions have reduced the num ber of Inifime tax-eltglhles to such th degree that there's been ample tim« to look after everyone. Incidentally Huey brought out on* paradoxical feature of the income tax law. "The single man who supports a mother—provided lie is the head of flie household," he said, "is bcttrr off than the married man. A married man without children eels only S'.WO exemp tion. while the single man gels J?, MM) us head of the family ami Slot) ill addition (or the mother,"
