The $2,400,000 the private bankers had

were really nothing but personal loans to
themselves which they. In turn, lent to
the corporations, In Mr. Voxel's view. He
slid Mr. Slegel therefore were liable to

torney, John P. Murray (who also, repre
sents tho depositors' committee), and Jo-
scph N. Prosknuer will put up a strong;

cross-examination that If the 12,400,000

From the testimony yesterday tho belief
trained ground that the plans of Slegel

HOWARD LOSES POST
FOR GARABAO DINNER
Admiral Who Was Assigned to
Coinmand of Atiintio, Fleet
Wasuincton, Jnn. 21. Because he was
one of thu officers reprimanded as a re
mit of the Carabao Incident ltcar Ad
miral Thomas Howard will not bo made
commander-in-chief of tho Asiatic fleet.
He had been designated before tho Cara
bao dinner. Admiral Howard will In
stead, tako command of tho Pacific fleet,
succeeding Hear Admiral Walter C.
Cowles. It is explained that this Is not
done to penalize Admiral Howard, but to
sparo the feelings of the Filipinos.
It is pointed out that the command
which Admiral Howard Is to take ts
really better than .tho Asiatic stotlon. Tha
vessels In tho Pacific tleet are of much
bettor clas than those of the Aslatlo
fleet. Admiral Cowles on the other hand
has had a year of duty In Mexican waters
and Is anxious for a change, white Ad
miral Howard has not had any Mexican
duty since, tho beginning of trouble In
In many quarters the wisdom of this
concession to the Filipinos Is seriously
questioned. The prediction is made that
the prestige of the American naval and
army officers now In the Philippines will
be diminished as soon as the Filipinos
hear of the action In regard to Admiral
Howard; that Its effect will be to lead
the Filipinos to believe that the present
Administration Is fearful of doing any
thing they might not like, and to fancy
that they can obtain anything they want
from Washington under tho Democrats
regime If they only make a fus about
That them Is trouble In stoic for the
Wilson Administration over the Philip
pines la the opinion of many In Washington
who know' by personal experience condi
tions In the Islands and thn character of
the Filipino people. Tho Administration
Is obviously slowing up on nil talk of
Filipino Independence, while the Filipinos
have already acquired the notion that
their Independence Is to be forthcoming
In the immediate future.
As a result of the action of President
Wilson In giving to the Filipinos a ma
jority on the Philippine Commission the
Islanders have put in. aemanoa tor prac
tically all the positions In tho (Mvern
ment. For example, they want all the
policemen's Jobs anil the leadership of the
constabulary band. In other Words, the
effect which Pret-tdent Wilson's gift neems
to havo had on the Filipinos is to wnei
their appetite Instead of satisfying them.
Whllo It has lieen always tho policy
to give the Government positions to Fili
pinos as rapidly as possible, their latest
demands are far In advance of what is
considered wise. Hefusal of these places
to tho Filipinos at this time will, how
ever, according to statements mado here,
awaken much moro resentment and hos
tility now than was formerly the case.

MRS. ROBERT GOELET
SUES FOR DIVORCE
Complaint Filed In Newport Al
leges Cruelty and Was
MATMtlEl) FOIt TKX YEAItS
Socially Prominent Here and
Abroad and Each of
Mrs. ltohert Goelet filed suit against
her husband In Newport, 11. I., yester- j
dH for an abnolute divorce. S'ue alleges
cruelty, gross misbehavior and wlckiil
luss In violation of the marriage- cove
nant, but the complaint falls to specify
liny actual examples of theso charges.
The document contains fewer than 200
words. Mis. (loelet asks for thu custody
of the two children, Ugden, 6 years old.
and Peter, 3, and for proper support.
Mr. f loelet, whose town hotltfl is at
047 Fifth avenue, between Fifty-first
and Fifty-second streets, could not be
reached last night. At 6 o'clock It was
said at his lionii, that he would bo back
In an hour and a half; at 7:30 It was
said that ho was not home, had not re
turned homo and would be out of town,
where ha could not be reached, all night.
Mrs. Uoelet Wt tho city for Day
ton. Fla., In the morning, before tho
complaint had been filed. All her at
torney would say was that If any papers
havo been filed they will show all thut li
to bo said and that Mth. (loelet did not
regard her uftalrs or those of her family
us matters of public. Intf rest or concern.
Mrs. C. Hartnmn Kuhn. mother of Mrs.
(loelet. returned from Kurope recently.
It uns tnl'l at her homo In Philadelphia
last night thut she was at the Waldorf
Astoria, but It was denied at thn hotel
thut she had been there recently.
The complaint was filed with Sydney
D. Harvey, clerk of the Superior Court
for New)ort county, Just before 5 o'clock
In the uflernooti. The papers wero sealed
when filed, and what is known of their
contents was made public by the attorney
for Mrs. Ooelet. The caso will havo tlw
first hearing on February 16 and the
papers will not lie opened lieforc that
.Surprise to Prleuda.
The suit did not como us n surprise
to members of tho fashionable colony
still In Newport. It was sold there yes
terday that Mrs. Ooelet first wished to
bring her suit on the ground of non
support, but that she was advised against
this liecause It would bo difficult of proof.
Nhe made the allegations of cruelty when
die learned that tho other charge would
not fiee her.
Ostensibly Mr and Mrs. Uoelet have
been happy together; they tiled their
best to keep up that appearance, nlthougli
It was known that while they uppareiitly
lived together they had separato apart
ments and never appeared In publlo to
gether. The first deilnltu break is thought to
have como last summer, although It Is
said that Mr, Ooelet tiled his wife's
patience on many occasions tiefore then.
Mr. Ooelet has n beautiful villa at New
port, and It was thero that tho break
came, (iosslp about the unhnppluess of
Mrs. Ooelet soon grew, until It became
almost public knowlcdgo that she was
contemplating tho picsciit suit.
When the Newport season was over
both Mrs. Ooelet nnd Mr. Ooelet re
turned to their town house, and still the
gossip would not die. Mr. Ooelet had
ii box at the opera, but Mrs. Ooelut never
sut In It. Sometimes she went to the
opera, but if so she sut In the boxes
of friends. At home, according to their.
friends, they didn't ven hpeuk.
Tho story of their unhapplness renehel
such definite form that more than three
months ago urtlclcs tiegun to appear In
the newspapers about It. Friends who
wero familiar with the Newport summer
life then guessed that thn suit would be
tiled during tho winter.
Married Less Than Ten Years.
Mr. and Mrs. Ooelet have been married
less than ten years, and their wedding,
ut which two of the greatest funlUe
in America wero united, wus thu social
event of tho year. It took phico on
Juno 14, 1904, In a church nt Wayne,
Just outside of 1'hlluUelphla, where Mr,
and Mrs. Henry Whelen, parents of the
bride, lived. Tho bridesmaids wero Miss
Alice Iloosevelt, Miss Esther White Har
rison, Miss Frances arlseom, Miss Pauline
Blddle, Miss Nora Iselln and others
equally welt known. The ushers were
Ogden Mills, Arthur Scott Burden, Hubert
Gerry, lingers Wlntlnop and Wllllum B.
Miss Klsle Whelen had the lepututloti
of being one of tho most lHuutlful girls
In society. She was tall, with brown hair,
regular features and tine eyes. She was
a linguist, a musician, had a reputation
as an outdoor girl and, had a talent for
painting. Her debut had been mado two
years lieforo at Newport and her family
occupied n prominent place In Philadel
phia and Newport society, although not so
well known in New York. Her father
belonged to u group of brothers who hud
been long conspicuous In tin social and
financial life of Philadelphia. Her mother,
who was Miss Laura Baker, was a direct
descendant of tho famous Kngllsh beauty,
Lady Wllhi.'lmlna Moore, who wus the
only daughter uf the fourth Karl of
Wemyss. Miss Lama Whelen, sister of
Mrs. Ooelet, married Craig Blddle, son
of Edward Jllddle and u gruudson of the
late Alimony nrexei.
Mrs. Ooelet has been as muoli at homo
in London society ns here. Tho Duchess
of Hoxhnrghe, her husband's sister, Is one
of the few Americans who won the favor
of the Quern. It la said that Mr. Cloelet's
family did not tako ills side In the quar
rels between the two. When his mother,
Mrs. Ogden Ooelet, came from Europe
hastily lust summer It was said that her
only reason for doing so was to try to
patch up matters.

tho trust problem and how to deal with
It the Oernuin Oovcrnnunt has Just given
t n tirfietlenl lltovll'iitlon of (be manner in

1 Th" olllces of twenty-threw cigarette
factories were searched under nuthorlty
from tlie courts and the police found
and confiscated a surprisingly large
amount of documentary evidence .showing
the relations of the trust and the fac
