Arion Hall, Home
Of German Singers,
To Be War Hospital
City to Buy Property of
Brooklyn Organization for
Government's Use
Arion Hall, in Brooklyn, which he
fore the war was the headquarters of
one of the best known and largest of
the German singing societies in the
United States, is to become a base hos
pital, probably for the navy, on May 1.
For twenty-five years it has been |
identified with the Arion Singing So- ?
ciety, of Brooklyn, and gave its name
to the street on which it is situated,
Wall Street giving way to Arion Place.
The city has offered to -buy tho
property for use by the government, I
and as itr sale at this time would
prove profitable to the society, there
is every indication that the deal will
go through. Already the society is
preparing to float a bond issue for
the purchase of the Pope mansion, at
Bushwick Avenue and Himrod Street,
to serve as the^ new Arion Hall. The
price of that property is said to be I
Membership Reduced
Despite excellent directorship, the ,
Arion Singing Society of Brooklyn has '.
not been prospering. Its membership :
has been dwindling since the outbreak
of the war. From more than six hun?
dred it has fallen to less than five
hundred, uf whom three hundred are
associate members. Last week only a
dozen reported for the singing, and
consequently there was no singing.
Such occasions are no longer excep- i
A definite schism between the older
and the younger members developed
in 1915. The former were, for the most !
part, German born and keen partisans
in the world war; the latter were
American born and inclined to the !
American viewpoint. When loyalty :
pledges were going tho rounds last !
year the society declined at first to '
have anything to do with the notion, i
T-.vo months after the refusal the |
younger element got control, and a ,
pledge was posted for signa?
tures that was far more binding than
the one originally proposed.
"The Brooklyn Arion," said John V. '
Diehn, chairman of the house commit- >.
tee, last night, "lost its dignity be-|
cause of the demeanor of some of its
?members ami the p?rsimrthy of the or?
ganization. There are too many Ger- ?
mans who had a big mouth against
America and now don't dare to patron?
ize Arion Hall."
It a hope? that in new surroundings '
the society will he regenerated, while
the great halls of its original home
that have rung to German songs and
German toast-, and also to the voices
of Grover Cleveland and Colonel Roose?
velt, will prove commodious and com?
fortable quarters for wounded sailors
of the United States navy.
Germany Upholds Mark
WASHINGTON, April 4.?A new ef?
fort by the German government to
bolster the falling value of the mark
by concentration of more of the coun?
try's financial business in the hands
of the government, was reported to?
day in official dispatches. The im?
perial postofftce authorities propose to
require all firms in the trade register
to open postal checking accounts. Onry
100,000 of the 360,000 firms in the reg?
ister now have such account?.
This would concentrate huge sums
in the hands of the government and
make the currency more elastic. The
circulation of paper money would be
reduced and the percentage of gold
cover correspondingly increased, which
Would improve the German rate of ex?
change. , ,
The German postal check system
was established March 26, 19M, shortly
before the war began.

New Loyalty Tests
Named for Stransky
Editor of "Chronicle" Inquires
Whether Director Did Not
Defend Doctor Muck
Resuming his criticism of Jose-f
Stransky. director of the New York
Philharmonic Orchestra, Richard Flet?
cher, editor of "The Chronicle," the
official publication of the Metropolitan
Social Bureau, yesterday asked further
questions of the musician by which he
seeks to determine the extent of thev
latter's loyalty, he says.
After saying; that "Mr. Stransky's
nine articles of faith may convince the
casual citizen, but, he avoids the lead?
ing issues," Mr. Fletcher asks of the
"How much has Mr. Stransky invest?
ed in Liberty bonds of the first and
second series?
"Didn't Mr. Stransky defend Doctor
Muck when he was attacked last No?
vember for not playing 'The Star Spang?
led Banner,' and hasn't Mr. Stransky
continued to befrfend him and retain
his publicly friendly relations with him
until he was sent to j h i I ?
"Wasn't Mr. Stransky apprised of the
fact tiiat at a meeting of the directors
of the New York Philharmonic Mrs.
William Jay, then a director, made a
complaint about the preponderance of
German music on the programme dur?
ing the last season?
"Will Mr. Stransky announce the per?
centages of German, neutral and Allied
composers who have figured on his pro?
grammes during the season?
"Will Mr. Stransky announce the
amounts of his contributions to the
war charities of the I'nited States?"
Mr. Fletcher also makes public a com
municatioivfrom H. D. Burrell, secretary
of the New York headquarters of the
American Red Cross War Fund, in
which it is ?said that no records are
obtainable, showing Stransky ever
contributed to this charity. This is
Mr. Fletcher's answer to Mr. Stransky's
claim ho had made such contributions.
Canadian Police
Arrest 2 in Spy Drive
[Special Correspondence]
MONTREAL, April 4.- Since the j
Quebec outbreak the military authori- j
ties and the Dominion police through-;
out Canada have followed many trails !
which may lead to nipping in the bud |
enemy plans at stimulating insurrec- i
tion and disloyalty.
Captain Carter, of the provost mar-i
shal's department, to-day decided that
sufficient evidence had been obtained I
to warrant the arrest on charges on \
espionage Alfred Perkins, an automo
bile agent, residing on Park Avenue
and claiming to be an Englishman, born
in London, and his partner. J. Miller,
who admitted he came from New York '[
and said he was an American citizen, j
Perkins was arrested in his apart
ment after Captain Carter's men had!
shadowed him for three weeks. In?
criminating correspondence from resi- ?
dents in Quebec, Three Rivers and Ot?
tawa was found, it is said. Other docu- '
ments brought about the arrest of Mil?
ler. Mrs. Perkins was not allowed to;
see her husband alone after his arrest.
Other arrests are expected to follow.
New York Baptists
Expect to Pass Quota.
Laymen from every Baptist Church ,
in The Bronx met at dinner last night
at the Y. M. C. A. to make final plans
for the campaign for $1,000,000, which
closes Sunday.
Dr. Fred P. Haggard, campaign di
fcCtor, expressed his confidence that
complete reports from the thirty-four
states where the campaign closed last
Sunday would show that the goal had
been attained. Special collections to
be taken in all New York Baptist
churches Sunday are expected to swell
the quota of $175,000 for the metro?
politan district.

Inquiry to Begin
Here on Charges
Against Humbert
French Senator's Actions
When in This Country
To Be Traced
w New York City will he the scene of
the next, net in the widespread investi?
gation connected with the treason of
Bolo Pacha, now under sentence of
death in France.
State Attorney General Merton E.
Lewis will begin an inquiry here next
week into the conduct of Charles Hum?
bert, member ~>f the French Senate, when
he visited this country in 1914 as agent
of the French government. Senator
Humbert ha- been arrested on the
charge of treason, and the depositions
taken here: will be sent to France for
use in prosecuting him.
Attorney G?ner-?! Lewis's princioal
task will he the tracing of money de?
posited ny Senator Humbert with J. P.
Morgan & Co., and his transactions
with officials and employes of the Beth?
lehem Steel Company.
Talk Hero To Be Recalled
Repr?sent?t ?ves of these two con?
cerns will be called to testify to all
they know regarding Senator Hum?
bert's activities here. They will be
asked to recall any remarks that he
' made concerning Germany and the pos
! sible issue of -tie war.
The examinition of witnesses will
; be in private, but the Attorney Gen?
eral's office, in a statement issued yes
: terday, said lisclosures would be m?de
from time to time by Mr. Lewis and his
assistants eondr-.rtintr the investigation,
which is beinj made at the request of
the French Embassy in Washington.
Senator Humbert's business trans?
actions with J. P. Morgan & Co. con?
sisted in making bunk deposils to the
amount of about $170.000. This sum
is declared to have come from German :
sources through the hands of Bolo |
Asserts Service Was Patriotic
Documentary proof of this, and also
a report showing that the French
Senator maintained big accounts with j
the Paris branch of the Morgan house, ?
have been made public.
At first. Senator Humbert explained
that he deposited the $170 000 in the
Morgan bank here to purchase paper.
This has been denied by the investi?
gators. The French Senator, while
admit.ing that he received more than
1,000,000 francs from Bolo, states that
he actually performed a patriotic ser?
vice for France in using this tainted
money in acquiring the Paris "Jour?
nal" in 1916.
Bryant Paintings Exhibited
The Arlington Galleries are now ex?
hibiting a group of paintings by Ever- ;
ett L. Bryant, of Baltimore. Seven of
the paintings were recently exhibited '
at the Paris Salon. Mr. Bryant uses (
flat, delicate colors on his decorative |
canvases, givintr the impression of an- I
cient Greek pottery. In contrast are
his vivid impressionistic renderings of
still life, one of which. "The Cat, and
the Bird," a charming color scheme
of gree.is and magenta red, shows a
grotesque porcelain cat eyeing wickedly
a dainty green bird.
But it is perhaps in his nudes that :
Mr. Bryant achieves his greatest sue
cess. Three canvases, entitle?! "Nudes
1, 2 and 3," show spontaneity of han- i
d?ng, delicacy of fiesn tones and great
charm of color and arrangement. Two
colored statuettes are included in the :
exhibition, which closes April 17.

Attacks Trust
She Made for Son's
Chorus Girl Wife
Mrs, Victoria McKenzie De?
clares Girl Has Not Acted
in "Daughterly Manner"
Mrs. Victoria A. McKenzie, a widow,
eighty-four years old, living at Bret
ton Hall, began action in the Supreme
Court yesterday to set aside a trust .
agreement under which she placed in ;
trust bonds and mortgages valued at :
$219,000 for the benefit of Mrs. Violet
?>IcKcnzie-Conklin, a former chorus girl,
who is the widow of a son of Mrs. Mc?
Kenzie. According to Mrs. McKenzie
the agreement was obtained by undue
influence and through fraudulent rep?
resentations. After the death of her first
husband. Mrs. Conklin married Robert
Conklin, a steel man. who died in 1916.
The trust agreement which Mrs. Mc?
Kenzie seeks to have set aside is the
second one made by her, the first which
provided for an annual income of $:?.
000 for the nlaintiff's daughter-in-law
and $100.000 on the death of Mr'. Mc?
Kenzie having been abrogated through
the efforts of Mrs. McKenzie's attor?
The second agreement, from which
was eliminated certain conditions to
which Mrs. McKenzie objected, provid?
ed that it was to remain 'n force so
long a? the younger woman conduct?
ed herself in "a daughterly manner."
This, it is alleged in the present
nroeeedimr, Mrs. Conklin has not done.
"Thereupon, after the execution of
the instrument," says Mrs. McKenzie,
"the defendant. Violet S. Conklin, not
only ceased to conduct herself in a
daughterly manner toward plaintiff, but
her domestic life and manner of living
became objectionable to plaintiff and
continued progressively to be such
until an intolerable condition arose;
namely, that, upon information and be?
lief, said Violet S. Conklin contract?
ed an engagement of marriag-e with
a man who is airead" married, to
another and which engagement is con
ditioned upon his becoming divorced
from his present wife, all of which
caused plaintiff to stop all payments
to her daughter-in-law."
