Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Daily Herald Volume V. SAYS SHE LOVES MAN SHE RAN AWAY WITH Preliminary Hearing In the Abduction Case Before Justice Elton-Girl In the Witness Stand Declares She Was Struck By Her Stepfather Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday, August The first act of the preliminary hearing of Geo. E. Nicholson, charg- ed with abduction, was heard before D. H. Elton, J.P., yesterday after- noon. R. A. Smith acted in the ca- pacity of prosecutor. L. M. Johnstone appeared as counsel for the defence. But two witnesses were heard yes- terday. The first witness called and duly sworn was Detective Egan. The other evidence was that oi one of the principals in the case, Miss May Wallace, who for two and one-half hours, displaying wonderful memory, quoted instance after instance dealing with her relations towards Nicholson ever since she became acquainted with Mm in October, 1909. Detective Egan's evidence dealt summarily with the issuing of the warrant, his arrest of Nicholson in the house of the U. S. customs offic- ers at Coutts, between the hours of 11 and 12 a.m. on Saturday, August 6th, last. A startling part of his evidence.was given while relating his conversation with Miss Wallace at Coutts. According to the detective, Miss Wallace is stated as having told him that she thought a great deal of Nicholson, actually loved him and would wait a hundred years if neces- sary, if she thought they might event- ually be married. The detective further stated that at Coutts the accused had wished to lay information against Fred Butler and his wife, Miss Wallace's step- father and mother, respectively. "I also heard after I returned that But- ler had struck the girl upon her re- turn. I was not present when Miss Wallace came to the police station last night and .asked for police pro- tection. I Claims Father Struck Her 1 May Wallace was then duly sworn' and examined by R. A., Smith. She stated that she had known the accused since last October.

Mr. Nicholson kept continually asking me to run away with him I refused to do so very strongly a first, and for a time even refused to write him. Consents to Go Eventually, however, I learned that Nicholson was to leave on Sept. 1st for Moose Jaw. On Aug. 4th I wrote to him asking him to see me. Be- lieving that the letter was never de- livered, I wrote i another one. On the morning of Aug. 5th, about 10.30, we met in the hall; upstairs in the Macdonald Block. Dr. Tuller was not in his office. We went in there and he proposed to me arrangements for getting across the line next morning. I did not give my full consent to the undertaking until' the afternoon, when I said I would go. Then came the story of how the clothes were packed, how they were gotten out of the house secretly, dur- ing the night, and conveyed by Nich- ol on to the train, how Miss Wal- lace went down to the station the next morning, and bought a ticket for across the line, boarded the Great Falls recognizing the accused, and how they were both eventually caught, a full description given in yesterday's of which was issue.
