MrH. Richardson mentioned casuatly
that Judge Brown hnd talked with Sen
ator McNIchol tho day she hnd the idea '
for the new Detention House. Senator
McN'ichol denied it vigorously. I
It was while telling how she came to '
think of the Magdalen Home site that
Mrs. nichardson brought In Senntor Mc- '
"I had heard that the Magdalen Home I
site was for sale." said Mrs. lllchard
son, "nnu as soon as I saw Mrs. Jurist,
of the Advisory Board, I told her about ,
It. Mrs. Jurist went to see Judge Brown I
to Interest him In the plan. ,
"And then," said Mrs. Klchardson,
with a deprecatory smile. "Judge Brown
went over to see Mr. McN'ichol. (
"Oh, I don't know what she wanted to
see him for," sho added. "I suppose he I
Just went over to tell him about It."
Senator McN'ichol was found In his
prlvato ofllce In the Lincoln Building. I
He wat. asked It ho had given Immediate '
approval ot tho Municipal Court plans '
when Judge Brown camo to see mm.
"Judge Brown and I never talked about
the Municipal Court," ho said. "I have
discussed It with some councllmen, but I
never saw Judge Brown about those
plans. I will say, however," ho added,
"that I think the Idea is one of the most
