BERGER A BANKRUPT
AS RICH FAIL TO PAY
Newport Caterer Lists Noble-
men and Society Folk
Among His Debtors.
913,000 DUE FROM COUNT
Petition Hcvcnls How Uuauc
ccHsful International Ro
mance Was Financed.
Carl fiercer, chef, caterer and res
taurateur, asked the United States DIs
trlct Court yesterday to declare blm a
bankrupt because of his Inability to jet
together enouuli money to meet the debts
which he ran up while he was llcklln
the palates of society folk nnd visiting
noblemen with his spicy dishes and help
liif them entertain ,thalr frlenda at
sumptuous dinner parties.
-Eerier lives at 26 West Klftynfth
tmt. but most of his catering- work
was done nt Great Neck, I I., and New
port, where for years" he kept a fashion
able restaurant In llellevllle avenue.
Both the Newport and Great Neck estab
lishments were closed recently because
of attachments filed' against their pro
prietor. The list of debtors named by
Berger In his petition reads like a page
from a social register, and contains the
names of several titled foreigners, from
one of whom. Count Alexander Itudllk
da Futack of Budapest, Hungary, Berger
may some day collect IU.000.
Flaanred a Roataar.
The origin of the 115.000 debt lies In
an unsuccessful International romance
which Berger unintentionally financed.
Several years ago. according to Berger'a
attorney, Jerome C. Lewis at 1(5 Broad
was Futack came to this country and
gotmto the social swirl. He wus Intro
duced to Bercer. a fellow countryman, by
Theodore Havemeyer. Soon afterward
the nobleman began to pay ardent court
to a wealthy widow, who appeared to
favor his suit Merger loaned Futack
15,000 and extended him 110,000 worth
of credit In the form of dinner parties.
About tho time Newport was expecting
the courtship to ripen into an engage
ment the widow became betrothed to an
other, and the Count's creditors began to
press him so mercilessly that he returned
to Hungary, where he la said to be In
fluential In political circles.
Other of Berger'a foreign debtors and
the amounts owed by them, according to
tho petition, are Prince Lubeke of War
aaw, 11,200, and Richard Felher Kap
herr, former German military attache at
Washington. These debts are also for
catering work done by Berger. The bill
owed by Prince Lubeke Was contracted
In 1816. Under the heading of accounts
receivable Berger lists the following

dancing instructor, who has filed a
breach of contract suit for 33,500 against
Herger and his wife. Durant was en
gaged to dance at Berger'a Newport res.
As a chef Berger became famous as
the originator of many complex dishes,
but In spite of that he has always been
an ardent advocate of the simple life.

Gotham, he announced his ability to add
fifty years to the life of any man who

Washington, Nov. 18. Qennlte ac
tion In the way of bringing to a conclu
sion the long drawn out negotiations fur
the settlement of tho Mexican problem
was discussed at a prolonged White
House conference to-night between the
President and Secretaries Lansing. Lane
No statement was foithcomlng from
nny of the rablnet members partici
pating In the conference In explanation
of the conclusion reached. The three
Cabinet members remsJned with the
President for three hours. Secretary
Lane said afterward that he was "well

return to-morrow to Atlantic City,
where the conference with Mexican dele
gates will bo resumed Monday. Asked
whether there was any prorpect of set
tlement at Atlantic City he replied:
"We are good settlers."
More Decisive Art Ion.
The apparent fullure of the commis
sioners to reach nn agreement with the
Carranta representatives fur the putrol
of the border followed' by the White
Houye confcrcnco is regarded In Wash
ington as an Indication that more decisive
action may be exiiected from the Admin
Little or nothing has been accom
plished by the protracted conferences at
New J-ondon and Atlantic City, it Is ex
pected that the American commissioners
will henceforth take a mora determined
stand. Insisting upon action In one way
or another which will either result In. the
acceptance of a plan of border control
by the Carranxe Government or the
abandonment of the futile conferences.
There waa no Indication to-night that
a counter proposal from the Mexican
commissioners was under consideration.
It Is possible, however, that Secretary
l.ane will go back to Atlantic City with
the !resldent's approval of certain modi
fications to the plan now under discus
sion by the Joint commission which
will render It satsfactory to Carranta.
The American commissioners have re
frained from delivering anything In the
nature of an ultimatum to the Mexicans
thua far. The conference to-night Is
thought to hnvo been held with u tew
to enabling the American commissioners
to make a definite stand with the ap
proval of the 1'iesldent and to Inil.-tt
that the .Mexicans "fish or cut bait."
( arrnnil Hrniata ftlleat.
One of the things that has nettled
Socretnry Lane and his lollcagues was
the failure uf the Mexicans to get any
definite word from First Chief Car-
r.inza on some of the miesttons sub
mitted to him, As a result of this they
found they were makliiK no progress
whatsover virtually In the negotiations.
The attitude or Cabrera taken In con
nection with the silence of Carranxa has I
excited suspicion that an attempt Is be
ing made to render the conference fruit
less. Army plans for a redlrporttlon of the
Tiighi Watf h the Qai
troops and a withdrawal of Pershlnara
column have been held up pending the
result of the Atlantic City meeting, No
movement of troops will be made. It Is
understood, until tho Mexican commis
sioner shall have assented to the plans
proposed by the Americans for tho pro
tection of the border.
There is every indication that as a
result of to-nleht's conference the Mex
ican situation will be brought to i head
