Justice a off asked her how she came to
use the words fiho put In the mouth
of Curtis, which revealed a certain
grasp of the points Involved In the case.
Mr. Savllle claimed for herself all
the credit of thinking them up. The
witness, who avowed to the Justice that
ahe "wasn't lying now," refused to share
the Inspiration for them with Llngard,
Then why did you use those very
words r reiterated the Justice. Mrs.
Howard faced the twelve critics who

"It was about the best lie 1 could

novelist would not be prosecuted by the

George C. Boldt'a "will, made public
yesterday by his personal attorney,
Francis fl. Itlltrhlrui nf 11 Tln
divides his estate between his son,
ueorge c. Boldt, Jr., and his daugh
ter. Mrs. Clover Boldt Miles, wife of
Alfred Graham Mile. Th i.
worth from HJ.000.000 to $16,000,000,
n me opinion or Mr. Hutchlns,
Although a trustee and benefactor
of Cornell University, Mr. Boldt left
nothing In his will for that Institution.
The only explanation for that was of
fered yesterday afternoon by Mr.
Hutchlns when he said:
"Mr. Boldt In his lifetime expressed a
horror of purchasing posthumous fame,
ns he termed It. at the expense of his
children. He felt that It wa.s the duty
of every man to give and to give liber
ally during his lifetime, and that he put
this belief generously Into practice
throughout the term nf hl nr. n kn
knew him will testify. His children
shared his confidence fully and It was
hi expressed wish to them that they
carry on the work that he had begun.
"A plan for great dormitories at
Ithaca was being considered by Mr.
Boldt shortly before his last Illness. It
was this project that he Is believed to
have referred to and that he hoped
would be carried out by his children."
Mr. Hutchlns made a short prelim
inary appraisal of the Boldt estate, say
ing the life Insurance ran Into many
thousands but waa not quite as large
ns some of the underwriters had re
ported. Mr. Hutchlns put the value of
the policies at less than 1700.000. Mr.
Hutchlns also said the Bellevue-Strat-ford
Hotel In Philadelphia, which was
owned outright by Mr. Holdt, has been
nppralsed at $10,000,000 and that It
bears a ($3,000,000 mortgage.
"He was also the role owner of the
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel Company, which
held the lease on the Waldorf-Astoria,
and though Importuned many times to
sell an Interest In the company never
did so, as every share nt tho time of his
death stood In his name.
He(r. Will Operate Hotels.
"Although Mr. Boldt In his will gave
his children full power to. dispose of
these and other properties If they cared
to do so. It may be stated that there will
be absolutely no change In the existing
status of the properties. Both hotel
will be operated In the future exactly
nlong the lines laid down by Mr. Boldt
His son fa well qualified to do this. He
Is vice-president of the Waldorf-Astoria
Mr. Hutchlns did not put a value upon
tho stock of the Waldorf-Astoria lintel
Company, as he did upon the Ketlevue
Stratford Company, but he did say that
these securities have earned more than
1700,000 a year for their owner. Mr
Boldt leased the Fifth avenue plota on
which the Waldorf-Astoria standi from
the Astor estates. All the furnishings
nnd equipment of the most famous hos
telry In. the world were owned by Mr.
The value of the Waldorf-Astoria-Cigar
Company, of which Mr. Boldt was
president, was not mentioned by Mr.
Hutchlns. Alfred Graham Miles, his
son-in-law, hi, associated with the com
pany. Mrs. Miles Uvea at 89 Park avenue.
Her brother has a home In Garden City
nnd makes his headquarters n the Waldorf-Astoria.
Their father hnd made
arrangements for his estate to fall to
their children In case Mrs. Miles and
George, Jr.. died before him. Mr. Boldt
had been a widower several years.
The will, which la unusually short con
sidering the fact that It disposes of so
many millions, makes tho two heirs the
solf executors and grants them the privi
lege of administering tho properties us
they seo tit. Their father did not de
mand any form of bond or Indemnity
from them In their capacity of execu
tors. The law firm of Baldwin & Hutchlns
filed the will yesterday In tho otllce
of the Surrogate. It was witnessed by
Mr. Hutchlns, Frank Alstrom of 40
Chestnut Htrcet. East Orange, T. J. und
H. L. Stewart of 125$ St. Nicholas uve
nue, Manhattan, nnd was dated Juno IS,
1914. The essence of tho will Is con
tallied In two sections, ono of which
"One-half of the reslduo nnd remain

children and the son-in-law nr cm.
telled) "I give, tlcvlso ami bequeath to

MOVING TO COUNTRY
Twcnty-fivo Per Cent, of New
Social Register Live Out
side the City.
Folk prominent socially In this city
are seeking homex in tho country In
greater numbers than they ever did he.
fore, according to figures compiled from
the new Issue of the Social Register of
jcw yorK, which was out yesterday.
Twenty-five per cont. of the families
Hstcd In the new book rrsldn In the
country, and In 1901 the proportion was
only 15 per cent.
Still Now York remains far behind
pthcr cities In the percentage of her citi
zens who take homes outside, the city
limits. Philadelphia, continues to lead.
More than 50 per cent of the families in
Philadelphia's new social register live
In the rural districts and tho percent
age in 1101 waa 44. Boston stands sec
ond with 40 per cent living outside, a
compared with $3 per cent fifteen years
The traps In New Tork society caused
by this Increasing desire for country
homes are being filled rapidly each year
by the marked increase In the number of
socially prominent families of other
cities who have moved to New York.
Social registers of other cities 'Indicnte
582 families with New York city ad
dresses, and this number may be aug
mented by adding the many families
from other cities who have made them
selves so much at home In New York
that their names no longer appear In tho
registers of the cities rtt their birth.
The new Social IteglsW of New York
contains 12,800 families or Individuals
residing singly. Of this number 3.161
reside in tho country. 771 ore living
abroad, 16 are residing on the Iiicinc
coast and 280 are living In other cities
covered by the Social Ilegltter. The reg
ister shows that 124 New York families
have gono abroad since July 1. It nlso
shows that 4,116 of tho socially promi
nent families reside In upartmcnta, more
than tine-half of these apartments being
In the district bounded by Fiftieth
street. Fifth avenue and Lexington nvc
nue, and 778 of them linvlng Park ave
Marriages, or 748 persons are noted
In the new register. Last year's fig
ures were 708. The mortality table
shows that 240 women and 281 men for
merly in the list died during the year, as
compared with 248 women and 284 men
