"While, therefore, they are desirous

I tories apparently "are made bases of

measures of prevention, it said:
"It is believed that effective meas
ures for this purpose might be taken
by a careful supervision of the
issuance of registries to vessels suspected-
of being engaged in illegal
traffic and of the issuance or clear
ance papers for such vessels and bv
an international agreement betwee
the United States and Great Britain
under which the authorities of each
nation would be authorized to exercise
beyond the three-mile limit of terri

vessels belonging to the other.
,"It has been found that many of
the ships engaged in the illegal smug

are registered under the British flag

The first three shots penetrated ; his

floor, witnesses said, the woman stood
over him. 'fired two more shots into his

The only witness to (he shooting was
Miss Gertrude Thompson; a stenographer
employed in Martelliere's office. She was
so overcome Dy shock that it was several
minutes before she could walk to the hall
and scream for help.' " Meanwhile, Miss
De Lome had hurried away. She was
arrested later at the office of her lawyer.
According to the police, the affair grew
out- of a mixing bf love and business.
Miss De Lome, they say, was the'wife
of a man named Salundies whom Martel
liere met several months ago, and with
whom he went into the lumber business. ,
Salundies left for France a" year ago,
the company went : into bankruptcy, ac
cording to the police, and Salundies' wife
appealed to Martelliere for advice and as
sistance. The police say that she trans
ferred .to Martelliere a house nd lot
which she owned in Brooklyn, assumed
her maiden name and expected he would
divorce his wife and marry her.
.Mrs Marteiliere told the police that
Miss De Lome met her by appointment
on Saturday and told her that-if Martel
liere did not keen, his promise ''some
thing terrible would happen." Also. Mrs.
Martelliere said,- the young woman told
her she would call on him today and that
"it would be his last chance." " ,
' Mrs. Martelliere said that she had told
Miss De Lome she would put -no obstacle
in their way if Martelliere really wanted

Washington, Oct. 16 British rejec
tion of the American proposal for a
treaty to extend the right of search of
vessels up to 12 miles off shore was
contained in a note handed to Secre
tary Hughes today by Ambassador
Oeddes. The known wa In reply to
Mr. Hughes' note of Juno 26, setting
nut difficulties encountered by Amer
lean prohibition enforcement officers
In checking the illicit flow of intoxi
cants Into the United States.
Secretary Hughes mado public his
correspondence with the ambassador
without comment. There was" noth
ins to indicate that any further step
to extend the right of search for
American prohibition officers beyond
the three-mile limit was in prospect.
Action of the cabinet recently in ap
proving the abandonment of such
search, presumably because of pos
sible international difficulties, coupled
with the British reply of today, ap
peared to indicate that operations
would continue to Be confined within
recognized territorial waters.
The American note dealt particularly
wun smuggling operations from Brit
lsh possessions In waters adjacent to
the American coast, and suggested
-metnoas ty which the existing ex
tremely unfortunate conditions might
oe remedied. Among these was
proposal for careful supervision of
registries and clearance papers grant
eo to suspected vessels and "an
International arrangement between the
United States and Great Britain
under which the authorities of each
U nation would be authorized to exercise
wyona the three-mile limit of terri
tbriaJ waters a measure of control
-ver vessels belonging to the other.'
. Thfre was appended an inquiry as to
'whether the British government was
disposed to agree to the reciprocal
right of search up to 12 miles from
shore which, it was pointed out, would
tmrly no inconvenience to the legiti
mate trade between - Nassau and
Halifax, passing at no point within
lour leagues of American shore.
In reply Ambassador Geddes pointed
out that his government had already
taken steps before Mr. Hughes' note
"os received to prevent the, practices
- as to registry issuance and clearance
papers to which attention had been
drawn. Tnese steps had been sup

the British government hoped "that
the measures taken will prove suc

.Washington, Oct. 16 (By the A. P.)1
The unshaken opinion of Secretary
Weeks and his military advisers that
the nation's military policy cannot be
adequately sustained with a. regular
army of less than 13.000 officers and
150,000 men, was again laid before
President Harding today by the war
secretary who was accompanied on
his visit to the White House by Gen
eral Pershing.
. The conference had to do with esti
mates submitted by the war depart
ment for the coming year calling for
total appropriations of J329.ZS7.5S0. as
compared with current appropriations
of $340,884,122. The army budget,
however, still must be approved by the
director of the budget. ,
The war secretary made it plain
that he had not changed in his belief
that the present army of 12.000 offi
cers and 125.000 men could not fulfill
all of the missions prescribed by the
national defence act.. The new esti
mates do not provide for an increase
in the regular force above these fig
ures, but Mr. Weeks has officially ex
pressed the Judgment of the war
department that only the most urgent
reasons for national economy would
warrant continuing the army at that
reduced size.
. The principal tem in the estimates
submitted comes under "support of
the regular army" at $212,707,379, as
compared with $225,411,512 for the
current year. Included in that item
however, is the pay, subsitnce and
clothing for all branches of the army.
including the National Guard, organ
ized reserves, reserve officers, training
corps and other arms of the service.
and the overhead expense of all posts, I to train next year.
on board cargoes of liquor, one set
for a cargo of liquor declared to be
destined for Halifax, Tampico, or St.
Pierre, and other set issued in ballast
for an American pont. This proceed
ure is adopted by the liquor smugglers
so that the ship may come within
unloading distance of American shores,
and if caught with a cargo of liquor
on board the matter can exhibit the
clearance to Mexico or Canada: if
the ship has succeeded in unloading
the cargo on the shore without being
captured, it proceeds into an Ameri
can port with the second clearance
The situation with which the au
thorities of this government are
confronted has become so serious that
this government feels prompted to
inquire whether your government
would be , disposed to enter into a
treaty for the purpose of checking
the illegal practices, in question. Such
treaty might contain reciprocal
provisions authorizing the authorities
of each government to exercise a right
of search of vessels of the other be
yond the three-mile limit of territorial
waters to the extent of twelve miles
from the shore. It would appear that
no inconvenience would be experi
enced as a result of the exercise of
such a right by vessels engaged in
legitimate trade between Nassau and
Halifax. It is evidently natural for
such vessels to take a direct route to
Hatteras and then a direct course to
Diamond Shoal lighthouse and from
thence to Halifax. Apparently . this
course brings vessels at no point
within four leagues of the American
shore." .

this year; for the organized reserve
$2,628,109 with no exactly comparahls

that the guard w:ll hare an averaft

clear that sacrifices and charity from
America do not themselves bring about a
cure for those evils which now gnaw at
Europe's economic life."
