West, in his reply to the actor
taken by his wife, asking a div <rcr
diarged that his wife had made
trips to Washington with Mr Jenk
ins. that .•■lie was paid an abnormal
salary by corporations in which Mr
! Jenkins has an interest, and Mia1
she took meals with Mr. Jenkins at
the bank here after closing hours.
In the rcnly lt’Cd for Mrs. We»t by

Mi.. West goes further, alleging that
her husband has the general m>u‘ti
t km in. Asheville of being a “vercnol
fiend, or ve-cnol addict.'
It r, admitted that Mr We-1 oc
casional'.v took lunch with Mr Jen
kins at the hank, when Hie press, of
business made u difficult to leave
but that such lunches were prep,a ed
anti >ent to the hank by Mrs. Jen
kins. and it is ot interest in this
connection to state that since West
made the sensational ehnrfies in
volving his wife and Mr Jrntons,
Mrs Jenkins and Mrs. Wen have
been seen toge'her in public, ami
their relations air cordial It 1
stated that when Mr. West went to
Washington, it was to look nftcr the
secretarial work for Mr. Jenkins
when his regular secretary was away
on business, and that when in the
national capital she stayed, not in
an apartment rented by Mr. Jenk
ins. but, at one of the hotels.
Mrs. West dec'ares that, she has
for years been obliged to support the
family, and it is at this point that
the allegation is made that her hus
band has become a drug addict, after
intoxicants had failed to satisfy his
cravings, and that, as result of all
this the plaintiff has been subiect
ed to "multitudinous Indignities "
that the husband is now suffeMnst
from o “loathsome and contagious
disease.” this resulting from a de

It is also set forth in the reply ot
the plaintiff. Mrs. West, that the
defendant. West, is under indict
ment on a charge of violating the
criminal laws of the state, that he
had impersonated ail officer, and
entered the home of a citizen
ostensibly in search of liquor.
It is possible that this case will
come up for trial in the Buncombe
superior court next month, as attor
neys for Mrs. West declare they will
then prosecute the indictment of
West on the criminal charge. West,
it Is declared, threatened long ago
to ‘‘b'acken the character" of his
wife if she evrr nppealed to the
courts for relief, and that he had
made charges against Mrs. West
similar to those he is now making
against other men who had been
