Why Sybil Sanderson
Paris, Jan. 7. Miss Sybil Sanderson
today gave the reason fur breaking her
engagement to marry Count Henri do
Kltzjamcs, which she says Is duo to
religious obstacles, as Count do Illz
James Is a Roman Catholic and was
divorced a couple of years ago.
"When wo became engaged In
America," said Miss Sanderson, "I dm
not appreciate what a serious oh
staclo his divorce offered our union.
but on my return to France this mat
ter was discussed and I realized- It
was Impossible that our marriage he
celebrated ny the Human Catholic
church and that we could only be mar
ried civilly. In view of the religious
Ideas of Lho I-'ltzJamcs family and so
cial connections, this would lend In
an equivocal situation umu-reptnhlc to
both of us. We therefore mutually
agreed to end our engagement and re
main the best of IrlendH. Count dp
Kitzjames will go to South America
tho beginning of next February with
tho Intention of making a prolonged
stay there. I will leave here shortly
nfterward to fulfill engagements In
Uelglum and Holland, returning to

Morgan Hopes for
Washington. Jan. 2.V A report fa
vorable to the Nicaragua amil Is ex
pected by Senator Morgan fiom the In-ter-Oceanlc
Canal Comnilitcc. which
will meet on Monday murulng.
The supplementary report of tin
Isthmian Canal Commission, contain
ing the offer of the Panama Company
to sell out for (10.000,000. will be tho
main matter for discussion.
Definite news Is expected here from
Nicaragua nnd Costa Illca ns to their
concessions to the 1'nlted Stntes,
which, from Information obtained to
day, will be In the main $3,000,000 tci
Nicaragua for her share of the belt and
$1,000,000 to Costa Hlcu for her pari
of the belt.
Neither Costa Illca nor Nicaragua
will be exacting as to future compensa
tion and will not attempt to hold up
the I'nltcd States for either a lump
sum of money nr n peicentnge of re
ceipts, ns in the case with Colombia.
The advantages of the offer of Nica
ragua and Costa Hlra as against those
of Colombia will be n telling argument
aside from the Irremovable cloud on
the Panama title,
Mr. Morgan expects a hard light from
Senator Hannn and a few members ol
the committee. Senator Morgnn put
It this way today;
"The Nicaragua canal may have a
roi(h Journey through the commlttei"
nnd through the Senate, but It will bn
dually chosen. I am sure."

REVERSES THE VERDICT
Policy Strictly Construed Against
Insured Party Justice Oal-
braith Utters a Strong
George 15. Doardmnn has lost his
suit for $'0000 Insurance ugalnat the
Fireman's Fund Insurance Company In
the Supreme Court. A Jury In the Cir
cuit Court gac him a Verdict for th"
full amount nnd the company appealed.
Justice Perry Is writer of the majority
opinion setting aside the verdict, Cecil
Drown, sitting In place of Chief Jus
tice Frear, concurring. Justice Gal
Uralth lltes u dissenting opinion.
The suit was upon a policy for $7111111
Issued by the defendant upon thu
dwelling house of plaintiff. The
property was destroyed by fire Jan
uary 21, by the order of the Hoard
of Health, after having been condemn
ed as Infected premises. The Jury In
the lower court rendered a verdict for
plaintiff for the full amount of the
policy. The plaintiff failed to file his
claim for loss within sixty days a
specified by the terms of the policy, but
set forth Illness and dentil in tho fa
mily n nu excuse. The Supreme Court
holds that ' c loner court should have
directed a erdlct for defendant ns to
the questions of filing proofs of loss
and of waller. The case Is remanded
to the lower court with Instructions to
enter' Judgmrnt for defendant.
The following Is the syllabus In the
"A lire Insurance policy Issued 'in
consideration of the stipulations' there
in named and of the payment of the
premium, provided, among other
things, that 'if fire occur, the Insured
will give Immediate notice of nny loss
theicby In writing to tho company
and, within sixty days after
the fire, unless such time Is extended
In writing by tills company, signed and
sworn to.' etc, (such statement being
what Is tomninnlv known ns 'proofs of
loss'), ami further provided that 'no
suit or action on this policy, for th"
lecovcry of uny claim, shall be sus
talnable in any court of law or equity
until nfter full compliance by tho In
sured with all the foregoing require
ments, nor unless commenced within
twelve months next after the lire.'
"Held, that the rendering of tin
statement In question within sixty days
after the flic, is a condition precedent
to the right of action and thnt. In the
absence of a waiver, a failure to render
such statement within the time speel
lled bars n recovery under the policy.
"It., a clerk In the employ of tho lo
cal agent of the Insurance company.
made to the plaintiff, when the latter
gave notice of claim for tho amount ot
the Insurance, oral statements to the
effect that tile company would not pay
the amount of loss. The policy pro
vided that no agent of the company,
except an olllcer thereof, should have
power to waive or he held to have
wnlveil any of Its provisions, unless
such waiver be in writing upon or at
tached to Hie policy anil that no act or
statement of any olllcer or agent should
operate as an estoppel on the com
pany unless In writing, endorsed upon
'Held, that the oral statements of It.
did not constitute or operate as a
waiver of the requirement lis to the
tiling of proofs of loss."
Justice Galbralth. dissenting, is of
Hie opinion that the failure to furnish
proofs within sixty days did not bar
plaintiff from recovery, but that he had
compiled ns far ns It' was possible for
him to do. Hu holds that a literal
compliance Is unnecessary and that
"plaintiff had made full compliance"
In so far as proofs of lusn are concern
Hi and was entitled to maintain his.
"Whatever tho practice In this Juris
diction may he as to the authority of
the court to direct a tordlvt non ob
stante. I Insist that this Is not a prop
er case for tho exercise of such auto
cratic power. It Is not clear that such
action does not deprive the plaintiff of
an absolute right. Ho is at least en
titled to the privilege of a new trial."
