NEW WAR PERIL IN EUROPE
Premier Laments U. S. Ab
sence at Genoa and Is Ex
pected to Invite Participa

Will Demand France Explain
in Supreme Council Threat
to Act Alone if Germans
Fail to Pay Reparations.
GENOA, April 27. Expectations
that the Genoa confeience may Invite
the. United States to enter the ten
year European agreement of non
aggression were aroused to-day by
Lloyd George'H speech, to correspon
dents late last night.
.tLloyd George's words regal-ding the
necessity of a long truce and his cm
phasl in tli: polnl -fhat the CMtcd
States Is affected by the present dis
organization of Europe were regarded
as tentative "feefeis."
Tho British I'icmler openly ex
pressed deep regiet thut America was
absent from Genoa. Ho predicted all
Europe would be In a fresh "welter of
blood," within his time, perhaps. If
something were not done.
In his speech to the British ana
American correspondents Lloyd
"The fate of Europe depends upon
the course she follows after Genoa.
The maintenance of peace depends
upon drawing of boundaiies satisfac
tory to all and quieting antagonisms."
Lloyd George pointed out that prac
tically every frontier in Central Eu
rope was disputed.
"I wish America wqre here," he
said, "Some people think wo want
the United States here for some
selfish purpose. That is not true. We
want -America because she exercises a
peculiar authority. America could
exerclso an Influence no other coun
try could command.
"She could come here free and dis
entangled, and with tho prestige
which comes from her independent
position sh6 would come with the
voice of peace."
Mr. Lloyd George gave It as his
opinion that tho disorganization of
Europe would affect the entire world,
Including tho United States. Ho was.
umazed at people who ignored the
portentous fact facing Europe.
"We triumphed in tho war," he
said, "but our triumph will not last
forover. If our victory develops into
oppression, vengeance will follow,
juet as Germany's action which
Marted the World War was followed
"Wo must bo Just and equitable and

Europe Is not on good terms and that

FOUL PLAY FEARED
IN COUPLE'S DEATH
Jacksons Died Slow Death by
Poison, Doctors Announce
Acting on orders of District At
torney John Huston, Captain of De
tectives John Sullivan of Brooklyn
Headquarters, and a squad of his best
men began this afternoon a special
Investigation into the mysterious
deaths of Fremont M. Jackson, the
retired seventy-fivo-year-old carpet
dealer, and his wife, Annie, in the
Hotel Margaret, Columbia Heights,
Brooklyn, yesterday. The special in
vestigation was prompted by the re
sult of an autopsy held by Dr. Charles
Wuest, Medical Examiner, and Dr,
Ernest C. Vaughn, representing the
District Attornoy, which) established
that Mr. Jackson and his wifo died
from the effects of poison.
Tho state of the heart and lungs of
the pair indicated that they had died
from cyanide of potassium poisoning,
but there were also present indlca
tons of poisoning by heroin or opium,
The District Attorney Is ordering
special investigation because of the
belief of all who knew the uged couple
that they did not commit suicide.
Dr. George Wardenburg of No. 144
St. Marks Avenue, Brooklyn, .who
knew Air. Jackson for mors than 30
years and was probably his most In
timate friend in Brooklyn, told the
police this afternoon that the idea of
suicide was preposterous.
"Mr. Jackson an dhls wife," he
said, "spent Monday evening at my
home. They were very happy and
talked about arrangements they had
made for a party "at their home next
Saturday. If they died from poison
they did not take it intentionally."

The nations of the world. In their
efforts to recover from the disastrous
effects of the World War, need more
of tho spirit of magnanimity with

in the world to-day.
"I cannot help but believe that
something of the spirit with which
Grant welcomed victory, something of
his eagerness to return to peaceful
ways would have speeded the restor

there can be no abiding peace. He

The mystery of tho "disappear

of Liberty bonds sent by the Chnsn
National Bank to a bank in Massa

a package of worthless paper when
delivered in tho Massachusetts mull,
was considerably deepened this af

of the Chase Bank. He said:
''Other companies with which wo
had underwritten' a portion of tho
risk of the Chase National Bank,
and which are therefore Interested
with us in this matter, have reported
to us that the Post Onice authroltlcs
have no record whatever that such u
package was received for registered
"We have learned that the package,
reported toy tho Chase Bank to con
tain forty-seven $10,000 bonds and
thirty $1,000 bonds, was prepared for
mailing on April 17 in tho bank's. se
curities room on the second floor and
.was sent to tho mailing room in tho
basement. The bank's records show
that it was checked out for mailing.
"The Information we have had does
not Indicate whether the package was
carried to the Post Office In a pouch
or by a messenger. We aro Investi
gating thoroughly because we do not
now know whether wo nre liable for
the loss. If the package was lost In
the bank, we are liable, hut If It was
lost after leaving the bank we are not.
"Tho matter is specifically In the
hands of my assistant, .Mr. Arthur
Stobbart, who has left tho city with
three of our detectives In the progress
of his investigation. He will return
to-morrow, I expect."
Tho bonds were never in the cus

definite and reliable Information
obtained to-day. Tho bonds were

was declared, and It was In this city
that worthless paper wns substituted

The package, all wrapped for ship

the hands of an employee of the bank
who had charge of the bank's ship

messenger of the bank took It to the
