young women who goes under the name
of Mrs. Emma Gray, aud who has been
cutting a wide swath here, left for Cal
ifornia yesterday. She has told several

Congressman Holman of Indiana, the
great objector. , Whether this is true or
not, she has shown letters to which Hol
man's is signed and which addresses her
as "my dear daughter," and included,.
"from your affectionate father." She
came here about two weeks ago and gave
it out that she was seeking a divorce.
She first registered at the Olympia
hotel, but Proprietor Mason soon had
reason to suspect her and requested her
to leave. She was at the Carlton house
one day and the second morning received
her bill with these words in red ink at
the bottom : "After 2 o'clock
room will be vacant."

As soon as a man was seated she locked
the door and withdrew the key and
threatened to summon the bell boy and
cry for help unless the money was forth
coming. It is said that a prominent

to prosecute, but they were not anxious
to make public fools of themselves and
