HULL CASE IS WAXING WARM!i.
Attempted Bribery and Contemplated
SAY SUBORNATION OF PERJURY
one person will go to Jnsl
through with this case."
An affidavit emphatically denying that
he ever patronized reports of the re
stricted district was filed by Hull this
afternoon to combat the testimony
against him frtven Inadcpoaltlona by Mar
garet Murray and Etta Hall.
Webster Predicts lief ore Case Is Ftn

Will lie Behind Ilnra Troup
Subornation of perjury, efforts to In
fluence witnesses with money and con
templated kidnaping; of witnesses were
charged by opposing counsel before Judge
A. C. Troup in yesterday's proceedings In
Charles W. Hull's suit to set aside his
$31,00) alimony contract with his former
wife, Mrs. "William R. McKeen, Jr. John
I Webster of counsel for Mr. and Mrs.
McKeen predicted that before the case
is finished more than one person will
be lodged, behind the bars of the county'
Yesterday saw conclusion of arguments
on the Question whether or not Hull
Shall be compelled to answer questions
of the MoKeen'a lawyers, regarding" his
employment of detectives to strengthen
his suit to annul the alimony contract.
Judgo Troup took the matter under ad
visement for "twenty-four or forty-eight
After briefly arguing that detectives
employed by the Hull side had done
nothing improper, that there was nothing
improper in the efforts of tho Hull side
to Interrogate ou$ of court witnesses for
tho MoKeen side and that Hull's dealings
with detectives are privileged communi
cations, Francis A. Brogan, of counsel
for Hull declared the purpose of the em
ployment of detectives and the interroga
tion of witnesses.
Tells of Detectives.
"Information came to us," said Mr.
Brogan, "that efforts were being made
by the other side to procure testimony
from denizens of the 'burnt district as
to Mr. Hull's presence there testimony
which we knew1 could not bo true; In
formation came that the most determined
efforts, even to the extent of offering
mbney, wero being made to procure such
testimony. We Instituted an investiga
tion, as wo had a right to do, and our
expectations were more than realized.
It will develop at the UI&1 of this case
that the story told by one of these
colored women witnesses In her deposition
was prepared for her In advance. A
mistake was made In Its preparation; for
It will develop at, the trial that her story
conflicts uttorly with facts known to bo
truo and undisputed by either side."
Mr. Brogan repeated the charge that
when Mrs. MoKeen sued Hull first for
divorce she filed a petition charging him
with sorlous offenses, then withdrew the
potltlon from the files and forced Hull
Info a disadvantageous almony settle
ment by an Implied threat to give the
allegations publicity by returning the
petition to the files of the district court.
T. J. Mahoney of counsel for Hull re
peated the charge of subornation of per
jury, which ho made at the beginning
of the hearing Saturday. He declared
the action of the plaintiff In Interrogat
ing witnesses for tho defense was jus
tified becauso it was an effort to pro
tect the defense against subornation and
to learn the details regarding It.
John It. Webster again denounced tho
Hull side for employing the Burns de-
tectlvo agent to set a, trap, to find
oul what the McKeen side would,
do If given certain evidence against Hull
He denounced Hull and his counsel for
employing A. B. Ritchie and Jack ilroonv

Tho first tlmo wo called Etta Hall,
t!ie maid to testify sho failed to appear,"
-aid Mr. Webster. "From tho deposition
of Jack Broomfleld It appears that he
hunted her out nnd gave her 25 cents
for car fare to go and see Ritchie, but
nho did not go. Ritchie then communi
cated with Broomfleld and wanted him
to find out why sho had not called on
him. Again Broomfleld went to see her.
This was tho night beforo sho gave her
deposition, having been subpoenaed a
socond time. This time he went In an
automobile and at night, not on a street
car, as before. With htm were the man
ager of his saloon Ford tho chauffeur
and a -vhlte Jrian they picked up on tne
street the four of .them going to sea
ill intf ihsv. didn't find her.
Had they found her, sho might liave
failed again to appear for' examination
the following day. Wo have a right to
know all that Hull can tell us about all
thaso things and more. I am not going
to be foolish enough to expose all
know In this caso at this time, but If
one,-half of what Is reported to mo is
Mother Rescues an
Erring Son by Plea
to Kindly Officers
Names make no difference In this story
It Is merely a chronicling of an almost
wordless conversation that occurred early
last night at the city jail In which a
sorrowing mother was sent away happy
with her hulking brute of a son and
which gave the desk officials a chance
to tee themselves, for onco at least, In
Early In the afternoon a lower Douglas
street policeman sent to headquarters a
burly workman, charging him with
drunkenness. It was pay day for him
at the smelter, where he was employed,
and with several others he started out to
make tho rounds of the saloons.
With a -few drinks In him, he forgot
a lonely mother waiting for some money
In a rude hut In South Omaha. Sho
was worrying about grocery and meat ,
bills, but she was sure that her only
son would ns usual bring his earnings
to her so they could live another week.
A neighbor told her that her son was
In Jail. Straightway she went to head
quarters and a little after 7 o'clock last
night Desk Sergeant Pnttullo was con
fronted by the little shawl-drnped woman.
"Well what Is It?" Inquired the officer.
"Please mister," she repeated.
Then It developed that her English
vocabulary consisted of only two words.
An Interpreter was called In and her
business at the Jail was learned, When
the official knew that her son was In
Jail and that oven the few dollars taken
from him at tho time of his arrest, wero
badly needed, they lost no tlmo In can
celing the charge of drunkenness.
"Mister," said tho little mother as she
thanked tho officers with her eyes.
