CANT FIND HER CHILDREN
Disappeared Two Weeks Ago.
Mother Tells the Court.
KIDNAPPED. FATHER SAYS
Tale Improbable, Justice Says,
but Woman Retorts She Is
Ready for Jail.
Mrs Grace Ftarhuck. whose husband is
suing- her for a divorce, yesterday calmly
told Justice Brady, in Special Term. Part
i I. of the Supreme Court, that she did not
j know where her two children were; that
the last time she paw them was two
: weeks ago, when they started out into
j the world Wttfa a dollar bill between them.
Some weeks hj?o Justice Bischnff signed
an order turning the children over to Mr.
Starbuck, who lives at No. 531 West
112 th street. Two weeks ajro the boy,
j Ferdinand, twelve old, and his sis
: ter. Catherine, a year younger, disap
peared from their father's house, and his
wife was accused of kidnapping them.
• 8h« stoutly denied the charge when
Mr. Startrack went to her house in Jones
street, Jersey City, and said she did not
; know where they were. The proceeding
: yesterday was an order for Mrs. Starbuck
to show cause why she should not be
punished for contempt of court.
"I am here, your honor, to answer
j these proceedings, and your honor can
i send me to jail if you want to. but I
cannot produce my children, because I do
: not know where they are. I have my
things here, and am ready to po to jail.

"I told them that their father was petting

and said they wanted to telephone again, '
and asked me for some money. I gave them
a dollar and they went out, and I haven't |

i When th<» woman had finished her story \
Justice Brady said:
"That* a very improbable story. I don't !
believe that the two children have "been •
■■ wandering around for two weeks with only

The mother again repeated her statement i
that she did not know where they were, but
admitted that they might be with some j

their father," answered Mrs. Starbuck.
The father's counsel suggested that there.
was nothing for th*» court to do but to sign
the commitment papers, but the justice was
loath to do this. Counsel on the other side |
Interrupted by saying:
"But, your Honor, there is nothing to dis
prove this woman's story."
"No;"' replied Justice Brady, "if she eald
she had suddenly seen her children take
wing and fly into heaven, there would be
nothing to disprove her statement, but it
would be very improbable."
T • justice decided to turn the case over
to gtistlce Bischoff. as the latter had heard
it originally and is familiar with It. It
jme up this mornng. Mrs. Starbuek
sked by the court if she would remain
t to 1 "der.
"Certainly, your Honor." she replied, "but
if you intend to commit me" to jail if I do
not produce my children, you might, as well
(jo so now. I canned produce them."
