sent to bar address, 'to take care of
her. "I have been celebrating," she
said, "and I need to be taken care of."

Washington. --Oct H Consreseman
Richmond Pearson Hobson was not dis
posed today to drop the quarrel he had
with Congressman -Underwood on the
floor of the house yesterday.
He sent a challenge to underwood to
meet him in Joint debate In their home
state, Alabama, ; and . asserted that If
Underwood tried . to give .. people ; the

ter, he, Hobson, would Insist on a clear
statement from the secretary of state

Unless Underwood .'presses, the mat
ter, he added, however, that he would
not ; drag Bryan's nam' Into -" the con
troversy,' because,, he aald, "I - do not
see how he can support a reactionary
type of politician." .
The Hobson-Underwood feud arose
from the fact that both seek the Ala
bama senatorship. Explaining the fact
that,;' though now opposed to bim, be
supported : Underwood -for the. Demo
cratic presidential nomination at - the
last convention, ; Hobson said he did
not then know that Thomas F, Ryan
had contributed; $35,000 to the Under

Underwood denied all that Hooson
aald - and cited his record In support
of the denial. He remarked, also that
Ryan gave $10,000 to President .Wil

running for governor of New Jersey

An aocomplice, , whom '.-he called
'Jack," waa implicated by Wilklns in
hi statement This is regarded by
Chief Clark and the detectives ssa
fabrication on the part of Wilklns. They
say that no other person worked. with
Wilklns in the commission of the crime.
Wilkin said he met "Jack" in
BUrnstde street beer room. "Jack" had
"mooched" him for a dime, and Wil
klns Invited him to accompany him on
the expedition that resulted In the
death of Winters. "Jack", waited on the
other, side of the street, said Wilklns,
while he sat in the fronr window of the
real estate office. "Jack", aignaled him
with a faint call when Winters left the
street car and stepped towards . his
home. ' ' -' -'-A-'-
Then Wilkin accosted Winters, later
assaulting him, and after everything
was over. "Jack" was nowhere to be
found. He has : not seen him aince,
Wilklns declared. The mysterious
"Jack" was described as wearing a
black suit and a black felt hat and
having a very dark complexion.

own request, was taken t the spot
