Mrs. Rrudley Is a brunette, about 38
years old and frail. Her first act after
being taken to the police station was to
send for Senator Sutherland of Utah, who
called on her tonight and had a long talk
with her. Senator Sutherland regretted
being brought Into the case, but said that
Mrs. iRradley had sent for him because he
was the only man whom she knew. To
him she told the story of her relations with
Senator Brown. She alleged that two of
her children owe their parentage to 8enator
Brbwn and that she named one of them
after him. Mrs. Brsdley was reluctant to
speak of her former husband, but question
ing -brought out the fact tliat he was living
In Nevada .with a second wife, by whom'
he has several children.
Further questioning disclosed' the fact
that Mrs. Bradley for two, years, 13o0 to
l'JUj, had served as secretary to the state
republican commilUe and also at one time
was editor of the official organ of the State
federation of Women clubs.-. She de
clared that she had a sister In the news
paper business In Salt Lake City, but that
she would not communicate with members
of her family, because she knew that they
would not ' come to her assistance. Up to
a late hoar tonight she had not obtained

her victim, "I loved the ground he walked
on," she continually remarked.
Her condition at midnight was such a

States, the ambassadors, from Italy, Gie.it
Britain, Russia and Japan, the spi-aker of
thehouse of representatives, senators, rep
resentative In congress anj many of the
great captains of Industry present, the
twenty-third dinner of the Gridiron club to
hlght at the New Wlllard marked the high
tide of the club's achievements. Satire,
bu'rlesqifn and straight comedy were the
dominating note9 in the most successful
dinner this famous club of Washington cor
respondents has ever given. There were
sharp contrasts, the tribute to dead mem
bers "of the duly abutting closely upon a
burlesque' Cuban revolution and an exem
plification of what happens In the "lawn
tennis cabinet," which meets with the pres
ident every day, Sundays excepted,
llnrlesqne on Cntinn Affair.
In the Cuban burlesque a memlier of the
club Impersonated Governor Magoon of
Cuba. Sitting on a red-hot stove he "held
down the lid," while tho club selected a
cabinet for him composed of the "lame
ducks," gentlemen who failed of election in
November, and club members impersonating
William Randolph Hearst, who was nomi
nated for governor of the island, Mr. Bab
cock, Mr." Moody, Mr. McCleary and Gen
Mr. Moody was selected for the place of
"trust buster or trust matador," tho Cuban
revolutionists Insisting that Mr. Moody was
not a "trust 'matador," but a "picador,"
the difference being that a matador kills,
while the picador only teases.
Probably the strongest feature of the din
ner .was the Orldtron "simple speller" and

of a booklet ot some forty pages, containing

Former Omaha Editor Comments on
Conferenre with ConI Dealers.
"I remember that several years ago when
I was editor of the World-Herald, many
complaints were made concerning the ex
actions of what was called the Omaha Coal
exchange," said R. L. Metcalfe, assoclat
editor of Bryan's Commoner and formerly
editor of the World-Herald.
"The World-Ileruld made as thorough,
nn Investigation as was possible and found
that practically all the charges made were)
sustained. I was invited to attend a meet
ing of the local coal dealers and was told
they would cheerfully answer any ques
tions. The gentleman who Invited me said
1 would find thnt they were 'a lot of good
fellows,' and had no Intention of violating
the law. I found that they were, indeed,
a fine lot of gentlemen, but they did not
distinguish themselves when It came to
answering the somewhat long list at ques
tions I had prepared.
"I do not remember the details of tha
charges mnde against this Coal trust, but
they will be found In the flies qf the World
Herald. From what I learned during those
Investigations I had not the slightest doubt
that there was such a thing as the Omaha
Coa! trust, and despite the fact that It waj
made up of eminently respectable gentle
men and 'good fellows,' It wa as, cruel
and oppressive a combination as was ever
organized for the purpose of prej'lng upon
the public. -..
"A 1 remember It, the World-Herald
printed at the time many stories of op
pression and I think every charge made
waa sustained In the Investigation.' Later
the county attorney was Invited to meet
with the committee representing the trust
and I was also Invited to that conference.
The members of the committee said that
the exchange or trust was willing to make
any amendment to Its constitution which
was thought fair and proper. I suggested
several, the details of which I do not now
recall, but which were published at the
time, and these were accepted. The
amendments were vital so far as paper Is
concerned; and so far as paper la con
cernedthey dissolved the trust and per
mitted the restoration of competition- But
It was only a paper victory, and I have
no doubt that the trust went right along
doing business at the old stand.
"From my experiences with the member
of the Omaha Coal trust, I should say
that it would be. a pity to Inflict punish
ment upon them. They are such n agree
able lot of gentlemen and so-- Ingenious,
too, that they would have little difficulty
In convincing a man that if he wa Im
posed upon It was all for his own good;
but speaking Impersonally, I should say
that when the names of cold-blooded com
binations are listed, tbe Omaha Coal ex
change will occupy conspicuous place."
