60HEZ IN FRANCE, SAYS
HEAD OF CUBAN ARMY
t
Gen. Jose tie ,T. Mnntengudo,
Xow Here, Gets Letter
From Ex-President. .
Gen. Jose De J. Montengudo, Commander-in-Chief
of the Cuban army, ar
rived In New York at 10:."i0 o'clock last
night from Lake I'lacld. and Immediately
set at rest the conflicting rumors of the
whereabouts of ex-President Jose Miguel
Gomez, which have been in circulation
In the past few weeks.
Gen. Monteagudo said that he had re
reived a letter from Uen. Gomel dated
July 19, nt Vichy. France.
In this letter the ex-President said that
he expected to remain at Vichy until Oc
tober, when he und his family would go
on to Spain, returning to their home la
Havana about December IS.
Gen. Monteagudo has been at Ijiko
Placid for nearly month on account of
his health. He Is suffering from liver
trouble. The mountain air did not do him
the good that was expected rrd he Is
returning to Havana. When he left the
train nt the Grand Central Station last
night he was supported by his sons and
the station master, who assisted htm to
his automobile. He drove 'o the Hotel
Astor, where he will remain until Satur
day, when he will sal t for Cuba on the
Ward liner Saratoga. He is accompanied
by his wife and two sons.
Gen. Monteagudo was greeted at the
station by representatives of the Cuban
Consulate here. The Consulate was more
than usually Interested In the coming of
the General because of reports which had
travelled down from I.ake riacld ahead
of him to the effect that he was to have
a conference here in the next few days
with Gen. Gomez.
This report Intimated that Gen. Gomez
might not hesitate to start an insurrec
tion In Cuba In case he thought the time
was ripe for him to try to regain his lost
power there, and that he was anxious to
talk the matter over with Gen. Mon
teagudo and obtain the latter's help if
!oss!ble.
This report, so far as It affected Gen.
Monteagudo and any projected meeting
between him and ex-l'resldent Gomez, was
denied by the General.
The news brought by Gen. Monteagudo
was the first authentic information the
Cuban representatives In this country had
had of the ex-President's movements for
some time. He left Cuba on June 16 for
Europe. Since then there has been much
uncertainty as to where he was.

BRITAIN'S ATTITUDE
HEARTENS WILSON
Recognition of Hiierta Was
Tentative, England Says
in (Statement.
JAPAN TO REFUSE DIAZ
Fears Reception of Special En
voy Would Not Please
United States.
Washikuto.v, Aug. 12. The probability
that President Wilson will have the sym
pathy and moral support of the Powers
for the policy he has evolved fur settling
the Mexican problem was emphasized to
day by two developments.
One was the reported Intimation by the
Japanese Government to the Mexican dip
lomatic representative nt Tokln that the
Mikado will not receive Gen. Felix Din.,
whom President Huerta has sent oh a
special envoy to extend the thanks of
Mexico for Japanese participation In the
Mexican centennial celebration, Tim oilier
development that Is remirded as significant
Is a statement by the Urltlsh Foreign
Office emphasizing the fart that Great
Britain In recognizing the llueita Gov
ernment made It clear that It teatJ-d
Huerta as a provisional I'resldint who
was expected te rule only until a rnnti
tutional election was helJ.
These two developments bear out the
statement already made in Tun Si'.v Uiu
President Wilson has loason to feel con
fident of the sympathy If not the active
cooperation of the Powers In his attempt
at bringing peace to Mexico.
The statement of the Urltlsh Govern
ment was kIwii out last night In answer
to recent comment that KiiKlntid'i, i ebu
llition of the Huerta Government was pro
cured by tln.inclal Interests who dished
to establish the provisional I'rt-sldi'iit
upon u tinner footing.
Tbr British Statement.
This was the Urltlsh statement:
"The recognition of President Huerta
was the recognition of a provisional
President pending an election. It was
dona on the advice of the British Minister
to Mexico as being likely to nlt In the
restoration of order an Important con
sideration In view of the large Urltlsh In-,
terests Involved.
"The French and German Governments
also recognized President Huerta after a
reception by him of the whole diplomatic
party at which a congratulatory speech
was madeln their behalf by the American
Ambassador."
A copy of the British statement has
not been transmitted to the State De
partment by Ambassador Page, and no
official comment could be obtained from
Secretary Hryan. It Is known, how
ever, that the Administration was agree
ably Impressed by the action of the
Urltlsh Foreign Office as Indicating at
least a spirit of friendliness toward the
mission on which John l.lnd has been
sent to Mexico city.
It Is true, however, that the corre
spondence between the State Department
and the British Foreign Olllre relating
to the recognition of Huerta already hud
made clear the nature of the recognition
which England was tendering the
Mexican ruler, and no extraordinary sig
nificance was attached to the statement
In official circles as far as the Mexican
situation Is concerned. The significance
consists In the fact that the Urltlsh
Foreign Office has seen fit to make a
public statement at this critical time.
Itesenlmcnt la Japnn.
The action of the Japnnese Govern
ment in refusing Gen. Diaz an audience
with the Mikado was regarded here as
evidencing the" resentment of Japan at
the temerity of the Huerta Government
in permitting pro-Japan demonstrations
and fomenting pro-Japanese talk In
Mexico city and Vera Cruz when It was
known that these occurrences would be
construed as anti-American In spirit.
The demonstrations referred to came a
few weeks ago, preceding the arrival
of the new Japanese Ambnssador
to Mexico, and It was evident they were
designed solely to express the friendliness
of Mexicans toward Japan in the matter
of her diplomatic difficulties with the
United States over alien land legislation
In California.
Tho pro-Japanese talk was regarded
here as purely artificial and intended to
draw the United States Into recognition
of the Huerta Government through fear
of Mexican relations with Japan. It was
at that time that President Huerta an
nounced tho appointment of Gen. Diaz
as a special envoy to visit Japan.
Later President Huerta put an end to
the demonstrations and forestalled a big
reception of welcome which had been
arranged for tho new Japanese Minister
at Vera Crus. Japanese officials were
reported at the time as being displeased
at the risk of antagonising the United
States against Japan which was Involved
In these demonstrations. It Is believed
that the Intimation of the Mikado's in
ability to receive Dlax grew out of this
displeasure,
Olas Party Halls.
Gen. Diss's party is still on the Pacific
coast and doubtless Its departure for
Jspan will be delayed until further details
are obtained as to the attitude of Japan.
The Japanese Embassy at Washington hnd
received no Information to-night as to the
reported action of the Toklo Government.
Administration officials to-day were In
clined to discredit the report from Mexico
city that Charge O'Shaughnessy was hav
ing a translation made of a communica
tion which John Llnd had prepared to put
before tho Huerta Government. It was
their opinion that the Investigation by
Llnd which tt has been announced will
precede any communication to Huerta by
the American Embassy has not yet
reached the stage where the preparation
of mediation suggestion would have been
undertaken.
Mr. Bryan was In communication with
O'Shaughnessy and Special Representative
Llnd during the day and his messages
from the two diplomatic agents were
transmitted to the President as soon as
recelyed. O'Shaughnessy reported that

Ih'itish (lovt't'iiiiient Agrees to'
Curtailment of Irish
.Mail Service.
Btiat 1'iihU ltitte to The St
I.ONHOK, Auk. 12.- The Urltlsh Govern
ment has agi -ed with the view expressed

would be dangerous for the Mauretatiia,
the I.UHltaula and the Aqultanla. the lat
ter of which Is in course of construction,
to call at Queetistown. and as the em
barkation of the malls outside the harbor
Is uncertain on account of the weather it Is
agreed that the only practical alternative
Is to put all the malls aboard at Liver
pool.
The Government stipulates a reduction
of about ll.'.OOO a year In the mall
carrlng contract and the iostKnement
of sailings until 10 P. M. Saturdays.
Irish mailing facilities will be thus cur
tailed as far as the Cunard liners are
concerned by periods varying from seven
and one-half hours at Belfast to a whole
day at Cork. Neveithetess Ireland will
still hae the White Star service on
Thursdays,
Dismay has been caused In Queenstown
by the decision as that port has already
been seriously affected by the I.usltania
and Mauretauia not calling there on the
homeward trip, over which the Urltlsh
Government has no control.
The Cunard Line officials say that by
the new arrangement the malls will ar

The great heat last week caused an In

SSSIB.OOO Prom Dr. A. C. Dnpont.
Mrs. Ada Francis Sutton, niece of the
Intc Daniel C. Klngshind, who died In
1873, and heir to part of his '$1,000,000
estate, filed suit In the Supremo Court
yesterday against Dr. Alfred Camllle
Dupont, formerly her family physician,
to recover n $25,000 interest In the
Klngslund estate which she assigned to
Dr, Dupont.
Mrs. Sutton alleges that Dr. Dupont
made loans to her In 1907 when she was
In urgent need of funds because her son,
Charles K. Sutton 2d, who since has
died, was III. She says Dr. Dupont got
her to- sign a paper which she understood
was a mortgage on her share of the
estate as security, but she now finds that
the paper was an absolute transfer of her
interest.
The plaintiff further charges that while
her son was under the Influence of drugs
on July 29, 1007, he was Induced to
sign a paper purporting to give the physi
cian power to pay his attorney $500 sub
ject to the mortgage on the estate Mrs.
Sutton says that the signature to this
paper was niado under duress and as
additional compensation for loans.
It is alleged that Dr. Dupont has re
celved n total of $3,700 on one lonn of
$G00. Mrs. Sutton not only asks that the
paper she signed be construed as a
mortgage on her share of the estate and
not nn assignment of her Interest, but
that Dr. Dupont be compelled to account
to her for all ho bus received above the
legal amount of the loans and Interest.

ASSEMBLY DEBATES ALL NIGHT
ON SULZER; VOTE EARLY TO-DAY
Mrs. Sulzer Now Says She
Signed Campaign Checks
Amunt. Aug. 12. Mrs. William Bulzcr
signed the campaign contribution checks
vhlph the Frawley committee In Its report
to the Legislature charges were used by
Gov. Sulzer to buy securities, according
to a statement made to-night by Senator
Abraham J. Palmer, who had a long talk
with Mrs. Suiter to-day. Mrs. Sulzer ver
ified the statement that she Indorsed these
checks.
Believing that Gov. Sulzer would waste
the money which these campaign con
tributions represented, Mrs. Sulzer. who Is
thrifty, thought there was no harm In
signing the Governor's name to them nnd
depositing them. This remarkable state
ment made by Senator Palmer followed a
conference with Mrs. Sulzer.
This afternoon Senator Pnlmer. who
Is chairman of the State rommlsslon
uhlch Is 4o erect a monument tn the sol
diers from New York State who died In
Atidersonvllle prison, went to the Kxecu
live Mansion 'to learn Just when Gov.
and .Mrs. Sulzer could arrange to make
a visit to Andereonvltle, Ga where the
monument Is to be dedicated this fall.
He was told that Gov. Sulzer was busy
conferring with political and legal ad
visers and he nsked Mrs. Sulzer to In
tluence the Governor to nr range for n
Islt to AudersonvHIe.
The subject which Is foremost In the
mltid of the Goveinoi's liouehnld natu
rally cropped out during the Henator's talk
with Mrs. Sulzer, and for a long lime
they discussed the pros and cons of the
situation In which the Governor now finds
himself. During the talk Mrs. Sulzer
told Senator Palmer thnt th Governor
never ilsned the checks which the Frawley
committee piodiiced to show that he had
misappropriated campaign funds
'S.-nutiir," snld Mrs. Sulzer, "It would
surprise you, I suppose. If 1 told you that
the Governor never saw those checks and
that I had Indorsed them In the Gov
ernor' name for deposit."
Startled at this declaration. Senatoi
Palmer asked Mis. Sulzer to clve him the
details of these transactions. He ipie"
tinned her closely, and she explained that
knowing Gov. Sulzer and his disposition
to waste his own money, she thought It
would tie a koihI Idea to indorse the
checks and deposit them to the Governor's
credit. She was able to tell Senator
Palmer the exact amount of each of the
checks she deposited for the Governor.
The straightforward story told by Mrs.
Sulzer nnd her absolute unconsciousness
of having done anything that was not
legal so Impressed the Senator that he
confided the story to Senator Foley and
other legislators. In a few minutes tie
story was circulated round the Capitol
and when Senator Palmer whs asked
about It he refused to affirm or deny it.
but suggested that the story could lie got
from Mrs. Sulzer.
Through a cloe friend of Mrs. Sulzer
the story told by Senntor Palmer was
verified to-night. This friend was seen at

IS MURDERED HERE
Hotly, Bound nnd Gagged, Found
in Iiooming House in West
Fifty-seventh Street.
KILLED MONDAY EVENING
Poliee Relieve Thnt Cnmidlnn
Met Death at Hands
of Thieves.
The body of William G, Marten, who
ran a millinery shop at 25 tl Oirlton
street, Toronto, Canada, was found bound
nnd gagged at 10 o'clock last evening In a
furnished room on the second floor of 435
West Fifty-seventh street. His heod and
face had been battered and there seemed
no doubt that he had been murdered. His
pockets were rifled. There was nothing
of value In them when his body was
found.
The body was Identified by a Mrs. Dar
ren of 355 West Fifty-eighth street, who
only a few minutes before had gone to
Patrolman Rldell at Columbus avenue and
Fifty-eighth street and asked him how
she might get trace of a friend who had
disappeared on Monday. From Informa
tion which the police gathered It seems
evident that Marten was murdered be
tween ( and I o'clock on Monday evening.
After Coroner Wlnterbottom had seen
the body early to-dny he announced that
the man had been blackjacked and had
been dead from twenty-four to thirty
hours.
While the police had no definite clue as
to the murderer or murderers they
etarted out to search for a Mr. and Mrs.
Johnson, who occupied the room where
the man was found until Monday eve
ning, having been there more than a
week. They also went hunting for a
man who waa referred to by the couple
as a brother of Mrs. Johnson.

The body wns discovered by Thomas
Jones, who runs the rooming house. He
thought It strange that nobody had been
In the room for more than a day and In
vestigated. The body was lying on the
bed when he entered and he lostTjo time
getting word to the police.
When the police arrived they found that
the man had been gagged, His straw hat,

statement made by Senator Palmer could
be banked upon. Mrs. Sulzer .was unwill
ing to discuss the story.
In his conversations with other legisla
tors Senator Palmer Insisted the story
was told to him by Mrs, Sulzer 'and that
he believed It. Senator Palmer Is a min
ister and was elected by the Iteplibllcsns
Hnd Progressives In the Twenty-seventh
Senatorial district, comprising Ulster and
Greene counties. He Is one ot the sur
vivors of Andersonvllle prison.
Mrs. Sulzer was prostrated to-night
and was unable to make a detailed state
ment to those who saw her. She
promised to tell a complete story to
morrow. Mis. Sulzer says that Matthew T llor
gan. Deputy Commissioner of the Depart
ment of Kconniny und KIHrleney, and
Secretary of the Frawley committee, and
who bore close relations to Gov. Sulzer
luring the laiupnlgn. wan fully aware
of her transactions with the clucks.
She declares that Mr. Ilorgan. who,
with his wlfi, were virtually members of
the Sulrer household during the Sulzer
campnlgii, advised li-r upon financial
matters and tint she did not tell the
Governor anything about what she hail
done until after the Frawley committee
had brought the check IrahMii lions oat in
evidence. Mrs. Sulzer explains that she
has handled hiT husband's money matters
and checks for years and that she saw
no wiong In iiiiitiuiilt - to do so during
the campaign.
At the time of Guv. Sulzei's numln.i
tlon Mis. Sulzer explained the Sulzer
Nuances were at an extremely low ebb.
Mr Sulzer's llnanel.il obligation
amounted to more than J4O.O0U and some
of them were pressing.
When Mrs. Sulzer looked for the record
