Is a former convict and a crook. He Is a
married man with a wife and child here."
Such was the Information conveyed to
the police in tw telegrams yesterday
afternoon after C. L. Wilcox, a youth of
2i. and Anna Wilcox, a young woman of 21
years, claiming to be mun and wife, had
had a hearing before Judge Scott In police
court earlier In the day on a charge of va
grancy. The elory developed by the arrest of th
couple revealed the luring of a young, un
sophisticated country- girl from her home
In a small Iowa town and the placing of
her by her companion, who is said to be
her first cousin. In a house' of Ill-fame hi
Omaha. t ' ' "
The couple were arrested late Wednes
day night on Information glveh the police
by two men, who, it Is said, were emis
saries of (he house of prostitution In
Omaha where the young woman , was
placed by her supposed husband. In police
court yesterday morning they both told
the same 'story of how, being stranded In
Omaha without funds, the young woman
" " " ' " a -
na5- despite the protest of her alleged h
band, entered the house of Ill-fame. The
young woman's experience In the place was
not what she had anticipated and she tried
to leave, 'but was, a she asserted, pre
vented. She succeeded, however, Wedhes
dsy night In making her escape, and with
her husband, as she called the young man
by her aide In police court, walked to Coun
cil Bluffs, a they were without funds to
pay carfare. Two men, said to "be con
nected with the house of Ill-fame, from
which the young woman made her escspe
followed them and told the police tht Wil
cox ought to be arrested for placing his
wife In a house of Ill-fame. These men
only desired the arrest of Wilcox and asked
that the young woman be placed In their
care. ' The police,' however, decided to ar
rest both Wilcox and the young woman.
Wamaa Tells Her 4ory.'
Wilcox and the young woman said they
were from Minneapolis, but it later de
veloped that the vmiur man nnlv rams
from there. The young woman admitted to !
Di.i,,ni ,- .h. . l .
Richmond that she was not the wife
of WIlCOX. hut In fSCt WSS hill flrMt COllMtn.
Her home, she said, waa In Baird, la.,
where she taught music. Her home life,
she said, was unpleasant and after cor
resDnndence with vouna Wllcor.he aareed
to secure her employment elsewhere. Last I 8'a. neavea a neep ana long sign or re
Saturday Wilcox appeared In Balrd and j ,lef yesterday when Mayor Macrae made
that evening the two left, gblng to Ded- I Public his willingness to accept a re-nomi-ham,
where they put up at a hotel. At ! nation ami head his psrty ticket on Mrch
Ddhtnv According to the young woman's
story." Wilcox telegraphed to , hi j wife In
Minneapolis, who Sent him sufflcietlt' money
to enable them to reach Omaha, where they
put up at a cheap lodging house and the
next day the yonng woman entered the
house of Ill-fame. '
The telegrams received by Chief Rich
mond from Minneapolis were from, the
young man's mother, who In one of .them
signed herself, "His Broken-Hearted
Mother." The young woman, realizing evi
dently the disgraca she has brought on her
self and her family. Is not anxious to be
sent home and requested Chief Richmond
to find her employment somewhere.
Young Wilcox, after receiving a scathing
lecture from Judge. Scott, was sentenced to
forty days in the Aty Jail, but the county
attorney' office now has the case under In
vestigation and it Is possible' that fie will
be held on a more serious charge. After
hi arrest Wednesday night Wilcox Sent a
telegram to his folks in Minneapolis asking
for Mt to enable him to return home. Yes
terday he received a -telegram from Minne
apolis,.' addressed to O. W. Harris, rsr of
police station, and signed Thornton. "Tour
wife here" waa atl thaVthe telegram con

seriate today spent the entire forenoon on
the committee substitute for the Hughes
anti-pass bill and adjourned at noon with
the bill still-under consider tlon. Senator
Olllllland of Mills and Dowel! . f Polk took
strong stands on thw bill, the ..enator from
Mills i.fferlng a resolution to strike out sec
tion 4, which permits employes, even
though state officials, legislators or other
officials, to ride on free transportation on
the road for which they are employed.
Senator Hughes opened the discussion of
the bill, making a brief speech and offering
n amendment providing that no employe
or agent of a road shiill he exempt from
testifying under the law, but exempting
them from prosecution If they do testify.
The amendment was adopted. Senator Gll
111 la ml then moved to strike out section 4.
and the entire morning Was spent In dis
cussion of the amendment. Turner of Ad
ams offered a substitute providing that
county, district and state officers and dele
gates to political conventions should not
be exempt from the sntl-pass law. and Oll-
llland accepted It. though later on the Moor
stated that he wss not .sure but thst he
should not have accepted the substitute.
The argument on tho amendment was
waged by Gtllltltwid, Dowell, Garst and
Turner on one side and Bounders and Jam
ison on the other. The contention of one
side was that a citlxen should choose be
tween holding a public office and being the
employe of a railroad, and on .he other'
side It wss contended that an attorney for
a railroad had a right to accept transpor
tation In payment of salary If he chose,
and that a railroad employe ought to have
the same rights ss a hanker or any other
profession or employment to hold a city or
