Dame, Who Has Been Absent from City for Four Months. Boston, I t. Robert E. Davi*. a young- stock broker, with offices in State street, where he has been popularly known as a "boy wizard," and has main tained a high standing with various financial institutions, is missing, accord ing to the police, who have sent out cir culars, calling for his arrest on the charge of the theft of securities valued at fIO.OOO from Anna L. Greenwood, of Xo. 390 Broadway, Somerville. It is al leged that the claims against Davie amount to from $389,000 to $300,000. Davie has moved in high social cir cles of Boston and Brookline." and al though only twenty-three years old. he held prominent positions with two lead ing brokerage houses before he opened a stock broker's office for himself four years ago. For four months Davie has been ab sent from the city, but it was only to day that the police announced that they held a warrant for his arrest. Some time ago he began the erection of a magnificent mansion in the million aire colony of Weston. but work on the building was stopped after his disap pearance. Recently he is said to have b*-en seen in Mexico. D&vie's mother, who lives In Allston. said to-day that she does not know where he is. H;s wife, who was Miss Anna Cotter, daughter of James Cotter, a wealthy attorney, ha? made her home with her parents for a year or more. Some of His Creditors. Da vie';, offices wore at No. 53 State itreet. Some of his alleged creditors are Constantino, the op^ra singer; Harry Lauder. the comedian: Alexander Mc- Gregor, several prominent clergymen and a sere of Back Bay people of social prominence. Scores of firms in the financial district and brokers are losers through Davie's -peculation. His business acquaintance fhip was with the best class of bankers. One prominent business man is said to be a creditor for SHMMJOO. Davie entertained Harry I.auder at his home, at No. 106 Winthrop street. 8.-ock!ine. at run elaborate dinners. Shortly before his departure for Mexico. where he ie now said to be, Davie gave a dinner at. his hon:e, ai which wers present nearly all Boca] and Brookline pastors of prominence. Among the guests were the Rev. Stephen H. Rob- Isn. who had taken a great interest in Davie'p affairs. About two years ago Davie married Miss Anna Cotter, the daughter of James E. ("otter, a wealthy lawyer a.nd man of affairs with an office in the Sears build ing. Love had ripened from a boy and girl friendship. The wedding was a fashionable event of the season in Hyde Park. For six months the couple lived together at LOS Wtothrop street. Brook line. Puddenb' tl ■ young bride packed up her belongings and left for her father's home in Hyde Park. To-day her father was dumf"und»d when informed of young Davie's disap pearance He would not talk at length regarding his son-in-law* domestic troubles. Rapid Rise in Business. At th-» age of sixteen Davie entered ' the orn>e of a Hyde Park real estate firm. So extraordinary was the amount of business done by him that he was i offered a partnership at that early age. He declined, having a better chance with the State street firm of R. T>. Day & Co. He -Rent ■aith them as a bond clerk. So rapid was his success that he was offered a high-salaried plare, with thu stock brokerage firm <<f "Wiggin & El well -when he was eighteen years old. A little over a year later he started in business for himself, with an office at No. 53 State street. At the age of twenty-one, apparently a prosperous man of affairs, building a magnificent estate at Weston, owning a large touring car and employing a rhauffeur to take him bfitween h \ 3 offices and his Brooklino home. h» married Miss Cotter. Some time ago Davie went to William H. Jackson, a well known business man of Boston, and asked for the loan of M 0 shares of stock which the latter held in the American News Company. Jackson. who was interested In the young mans , areer and believed in him. assented. He held about UIOO shares. Davie obtained more than 1.00*"* shares, instead of I°O. took them to the Federal Trust Com pany and borrowed $BO.o<tO on them. At pr^ppnt this transaction is In the courts. Another incident in the career of Davie shows his methods. Desiring to pur chase real estate in Weston. he ap proached the owner and stated that while he did not have the ready mon^y at the time he desired to purchase the property and wanted to begin building operations at on' c. The owner assented. When it came time for Davie to pay he told the owner that he would have the money for him the next day and asked him to leave the deeds with him. Thr? owner did so. The deeds, it Is alleged, are now held by a local bank as security for a $10,000 loan made to Davie. Davie's mother, Mrs. Lucy Davie. who resides at No. 2 Ashford Court, Allston, •was left a widow when the boy was very young. Wrapped up in both Rob ert and his younger brother, she went to work teaching music to help support them. "Robert was a good boy," said a fam ily friend to-day. "That was one of the "reasons I helped him. He was a mar vel, that boy. He went to work for the Jordan Marsh Company as a bundle boy during one vacation, showing no false pride. He saved every dollar and loved his mother. That's why we liked him." • ' DEWEY'S "BRUT-CUVEE" CHAMPAGNE Th*- Wine for those who Know Wine. H T DnwejF & Sons Co.. 13S Fulton St.. N.T. — Advt.

HAS PLAN FOR DISCIPLINE Declares He and His Brother Wont Stand for What He Calls General Uselessness of Fancy Flying. Wilbur Wright cam* to town yester day. He talked of the system of punish ment established by the Wright com pany to affect those aviators in its em ploy who. through love of applause and spurred on by camp rivalry, disobeyed orders ls^jed "by himself and OrvUle rel a f-ve to sensational stunts in flying. Mr Wright was at the Hotel Manhattan last night. Asked about the cause of the accidenr to Ralph Johnstone, who fell five hundred feet to his death at Denver on November 17. 'h* 5 famous inventor said: "I have thought it all out- T have not expressed any opinion on th* subject before because T wanted to analyze the probabilities. The day before Johnstone started for Denver T had a long, serious talk with him in my office in Fifth ave nue. I said to him: "Ralph, you must obey orders from now on or there will be "serious trouble. You took unneces sary risks at Boston and at Belmont. Park against definite orders, and it must stop.' "He said: 'Mr. Wright. I've thought it all over and I've made up my mind to obey orders. You don't seem to appre ciate fancy flying, and I am not going to do any more of it- He was a little hot about it. I said: 'Ralph, you can't please me any better than by sticking to that. We do not value a man by the number of times he outdoes his fellow aviators but by the ability he has to j restrain himself when the crowd yells for the uselessly sensational." "On the day that Johnstone was killed Ihe was doing all right. He had not at tempted any corkscrew turns or dips, out was flying in a sensible manner. On the day before, though, he had disobeyed a standing order by landing with the wind instead of against it. ' "Brooky'.had come down, and by obeying the rule had landed away from ' the grandstand. Hoxsey followed, and managed to alight in front of the .grandstand by evading the injunction to fly against the wind. Of course. Johnston-* would have to do at least as well as Hoxsey, and so he ! tried to do better. The result was that he ran into a fence and broke a wing. . "I think there must have been some little detail omitted in making repairs to ♦he wing which made the machine act so on the day that Johnstone was killed. If the order to alight against the wind had teen obeyed the wing would not have been broken • - "Did you know how it happened that •Brooky' instead of Hoxsey made the 'cross-country flight from Chicago to Springfield? I made up my mind that Hoxsey deserved to make that trip. Johnstone and 'Brooky' had been exhibit ing at Boston and Hoxsey had. been doing small turns in the West. I said to myself that I would give Hoxsey a chance to get Into the newspapers and show what he could do. He and John stone were flying at Detroit at the time. I had instructed both not to attempt any hair-raiding "stunts* at Detroit. "When I got to Detroit the first thing I saw in the morning newspapers was that Johnstone had made a nice flight of eight minutes in an unfavorable wind. The next thing I saw was that Hoxsey had done all kinds of fancy work. The boys did not know I was in town. I went to the grounds in the afternoon, bought a ticket to the grandstand and | waited for developments. Johnstone went up and made a beautiful flight; the I wind was bad. but he came down all | right. So far everything was pleasant. Then Hoxsey went up. flew around ac cording to orders for a few minutes and then suddenly he seemed to become pos sessed. He became drunk in front of the grandstand and then swooped and ; corkscrewed all over the place. "I went back to the hotel and left two notes. I thanked Johnstone for obey- , ing orders and congratulated him on his good exhibition. In Hoxsey's note I told j him of my disappointment over his ex hibition and that I had come for the purpose of letting him carry off the honors in the Chieago-Springneld flight, but that as he had disobeyed .infinite written Instructions 1 would have to call on Brooky.
