Accused by Wife.
DENVER WOMAN IS NAMED
FTve Yean of Doubt and Distrust
Leads Tp to Alleged Proof of
"Affinity" Episode ; Hotel
Clerk Aids Complainant.
Identification by a Portland hotel
cleric of a picture of A. A. Brodeck,
Commissioner of Public Safety at Ev
erett. Wuh, led to the Issuance of
a felony complaint against him by Dis
trict Attorney Evans yesterday, and
telegraphic request was made upon the
Sheriff of Snohomish County last night
by Deputy Constable Hunter.
The warrant was sent to the Sheriff
because Mr. Brodeck. by virtue of his
office, la in charge of the Everett police
department and some difficulty over
bia extradition might arise if ths ar
rest were left to his subordinates.
Doubt Covers Five Years.
Five years of doubt and distrust are
assigned by Mrs. 'Brodeck. an elderly,
aristocratic-looking woman, now In
Portland, as to the cause leading up to
the procuring of the complaint. Jointly
with ber husband she accuses Mrs.
Freda Fredlund. a hair dresser, for
merly of Denver, but now said to be in
The complainant, who is staying In
Portland with a sister, and has en
gaged Attorney Frank T. Collier to as
sist the prosecution, says that for many
years It has been the practice of her
husband, hi years of age. to boast of
his attractive powers .upon other
women. This, ehe says, naturally gave
rise to suspicions, but never until last
June did she .have more than doubt
upon which to act.
Gossip Starts Exposure.
The alleged exposure finally came
through the gossiping of a small city.
where. In some manner it became
noised about that the Commissioner
had telegraphed to Mrj. Fredlund at
Denver, asking her to meet him at
Portland. It was several days after his
departure before this rumor reached
the wife, and then she set out Imme
diately, armed with a photograph of

woman were at the Annex hotel, she
went there, but did not find them reg

the clerk, who said that It waa that

istered aa his wife, had stayed at the
hotel from June 11 to June IS of the
Federal Prosecatloa Talked.
Mrs. Brodeck first talked of insti
tuting a Federal prosecution under the
white slavery statute, but she decided
that that action would be too severe.
The action taken here yesterday
came on the heels and apparently in
dependently, of a suit filed in Everett
the day before by F. Fredlund. husband
of the alleged co-respondent, against
Brodeck, for 135,000 for the alienation
of the affections of his wife. Previous
to this there had been frequent bicker
ings between the Brodecks. husband
and wife, who separated last May.

City Withdraws Old Case Against
Inman-Ponlsen Lumber Company,
A dozen or so criminal complaints
by the city against the Inman-Poul-sen
Lumber Company, charging that

any other purpose than a lumbering

this decision. This made dismissal of
criminal charges necessary.

As W. D. Skinner, traffic manager
of the Spokane, Portland & Seattle

day he came across this letter, marked
"Personal." and bearing a postmark
from east of the Mississippi River:

ROBBERY SUSPECT FREED
Police Vow Without Clews to Par
ticipants In Train Eoldnp.
After being held for more than a
week aa a suspect in the case of the
holdup of the Soo-Spokane Limited,
Arthur Vallon. ex-convict, waa re
leased yesterday after pleading guilty
to vagrancy and promising to go to
Canada at once. Detectives Vaughn
and Hyde,' who made the arrest, con
sented to this disposal of the case.
Vallon was arrested on Information
that he had been heard talking of a
"job" he waa to have a hand In. the
night of the train robbery, but the of
ficers are now convinced that he had
reference to some other enterprise.
While this clears the records of all
promising clews to the robbery, the
detectives continue optimistic and give
the Impression that developments may
come at any time.
Phone Rate of $1.60 Indorsed.
A committee of the Greater East Side
Clubs Association appointed to Investi
gate telephone rates In Portland yester
day sent a communication to City Audi
tor Barbur asserting that the rate of
J 1.60 a month for telephones In resi
dences should prevail Inasmuch as that
was the rate In effect when the City
Council granted the Pacific Telephone
& Telegraph Company a franchise in
the city. It Is said the rates range now
from 11.50 to $2.25 a month. The report
is signed by A. N. Searle, A. L. Maney,
A. M. Humphreys, Edward Da Wyl and
O. G. Hughson.
