diwovery would have on the solution
of the mystery. As a matter of fact,

A detective who has been working
on the case from the beginning said
that the reports of clews leading to

HYTHE, England, June 20. The con?
ference between Premiers T.loyd George
and luillcrand at Sir Philip Sassoon's
house in the Village of Lympne, near
here, to-day, was arranged suddenly be?
cause of a serious turn in the Turkish
situation. The successes of Mustapha
Kemal, leader of the Nationalist forces
on the pcninsula opposite Constanti
| noplc, have been such as to awaken the
! Allied leaders to the necessity of tak?
ing immediate countcr measures.
Kepresontations from Admiral De Ro
i beck. British High Commissioner at Con
; stantinople, convinced Lloyd Gcoi'ge that
| thr situation could nor wait for discus
i sion at the general Allieri conference nt
| Boalogne Monday and Tuesday. He im?
mediately rrot in touch with Millerand
I and arranged the conferences in which
tho premiers engaged last night and
to-day, and the French Premier, accom?
panied by Marshal Foch and other
military and civilian adviscrs, hastcned
to England.
The Turkish problem has had the
particular attention of the British gov
I ernment, just, as questions regarding
Germany snd the fulfillment. of the
Trcatv of Versailles have been handled
i largely by France. This explanation is
given of the fact that to-day's confer
j ences took place in England rather
i than in France.
Venizelos Urgcs Action
j Eliutherios Venizelos, the Greek I
| Premier, who has been in touch with !
: Eloyd George al! this week and was at
Lympne to-day, sunported the reports
of the situation which Admiral De Ro
i beck submitted and gave further de
| tails of the situation. He emphasized
, the necessity for prompt action if the
; Nationalists are not to get complotely
I out of hand.
The Greek Premier has domestic I
problems whieh are getting increasingly -
fdifficult. to handle because of the grow
ing sympathy for the deposed King
Constantine. He is especiallv anxious,
, therefore. because of tho political effect
: which his faiiure to protoct Grook
rights would have in his own country,
. that tho Allies act quickly against.
i Kemal, ar- otherwise Venizelos fore^c-33
j the overrutming of the once Turkish ter?
ritory that was alloted to Greece under
!the Turkish treaty. which has been.
hanging fire for weeks.
Venizelos, who has an armv of con?
siderable size at. his disposal, has of
! fered to send detachments not onlv to
the assistanee of the Italians, who are
hard pressed in Albania, but fo Asia
Minor, in the n<Mghhorhood of Israid,
where the Anglo-Indian forces are in'
an unhappy position between the fire
of the Sultan's troops and the Nation
I alists.
French and British Disagree
Tho French and British nre not
, united in their attitude toward the
I question, it is understood here, as the
I French are not altogether out of sym?
pathy with the cause of the National
I ists, whereas Lloyd George is ccrtain
j that. any sort of compromise with Kem
: al would be interpreted throughout the
j East as the beginning of a great
I victory.
| The British believe that no real set
! tlement can be made in the Near East
until an agreement is made with Rus
! sia and arguments on this line were
| developed nt the conferences.
I The Boulogne conference, in which
! all the Allies will participate, promises
| to hc the most important. meeting since
| San Remo. The financial settlement
which Germany must make will prob?
ably be the principal subject under dis
[ cussion, although an effort will be
| made to harmonize the French and
British points of view on a number of
other questions.
Tho settlement of the political
crisis in Germany gives hope that at,
the Spa meeting. to be held in July,
agreements will be reached that will
have a far-reaehing effect.
HYTHE, England, .lune 20 i'Bv Tho
Associated Press).?Premier Venizelos,
of Greece, who is anxious to safeguard
the Greek gains through the treaty,
called on Premiers Eloyd George and
Millerand nt this morning's confer?
ence, prepared to art. in behaif of the
Allies in repressing the activities of
Mustapha Kemal Pasha, the Turkish
Nationalist leader.

LONDON, June 21.?The situ?

there is something' more than the
porsibility of serious outbreaks

most impossible, and the outlook

truth in the reports from Reno con-l
cerning Mrs. Dick.
"These reports mav refer to some1
other Mrs. William K. Dick,-although I

several of them probably fatallv, and
about 100 others wero less seriously1
mjured m de.pcrate rioting in this'
city Saturday night. The fighting was
accompanied by several attempts at :
mcendiarism. one of which resulted in |
the burning of a large drapery store.!
Ihe rioting was a continuation of
the disordera of Friday night, when
nationalists and Unionists were en
gaged in clashes for several hojrs, and
the mtlitary had to be caiied out. The
military remained in what were con
sidered tho danger r.ones, but, not
withstanding its presence, the disor?

ln many instances perrons who were
surronng from minor wounds went
home without receiving treatment. The
authorities have no record of the num. i
her of such cases. Among the wounded ;
are several shipyard workers with had !
gunshol wounds.
The men killed were Edwin Price
James McVeigh, Thomas McLaughli'n,'
ihomas Farrcn and James Doherty.
Prerautions Prove Futile
The authorities had taken elaborate I
precaulions in view of the expected'
renewal of the disorders. The mili?
tary, fully equipped, took positions at
the head and foot of Bridge Street,!
which is the Nationalist. quarter, and'
on Fountain Street, the Gnionist ;
quarter. An armorod car was drawn
up at Carlisle Road, between those
localities, to keep ihe rival factions
The hopes that theso precautions I
would lead to the preservation of
peace, however, were not*fulfUled, and i
another night of lerror resulted. j
These latest. scenes of rioting, which !
left the city terror-stricken, wore
sairl to have originated in what at
first appeared to be. a minor squabble
between Unionists and Nationalists at !
the junctuie nf Longtower Street, in
ihe Nationalist, quarter. and upper I
Fountain Street, the Unionist district, j
these two streets being B?parated only j
by Bishop Street, the scene of blood'
shed for many years during period? \
of rioting. Men armed with rifles and i
revolvers afterward came into conflict,
and before tho military could inter- ji
vene several had been killed.
Pandemonium Reigns for Hours
From shortly after 9 until 11 o'clock j
there was fighting. A shot fired
from one party into a crowd of rival j
partisans developed with ominous I
speed into violent rioting. Partv cries !
were raised and the Unionists, as
sembled at, the head of upper Foun- |
tain Street, poured volley after volley]
of rifle and revolver tire into Long-j
tower Street.
Another crowd of Unionists in ?
Albert Street maintained a crossfire ,
in the direction of Bishop's Gate, with I
? he result that the persons in the |
vicinity fled panic-stricken. The Na- j
tionalists did not seem to he so well !
provided with weapons as their oppo

The high cost of living keeps many
persons short of change, but that prob?
ably was not the reason why Miss '
Margaret "Wilson, daughter of the
President, recently found herself on a
Fifth \venue hns without. the fare in
her pocketbook. An accommodating
conductor lent her 10 cents.
The conductor, P. G. Lynch, was not
awarc of the identity of hia passenger
until he received a personai letter,
from her from the White House,'
thanking him for his courtesy.
Miss Wilson also wrote to J. A.
Ritchie, president of the bus company,
calling his attention to the courtesy
oi' tha conductor. Lynch's bus had
stopped at Thirty-fourth Street and
Fifth Avenue, north bound, when a "de
murc young woman," according to Con?

a coin which he discovered to be a

The young woman smiled, took the
penny, looked in her purse and the
smile faded when she was unable to

"1 guess 1 muBt get off," she said,;
"that penny is all I have with me."

Board the Tammany Special I. Accora
ing to information received by the
Tammany leaders who are heading the
New Vork delegates to tho San fran?
cisco convention on this train. there
ia a strong possibility that Vice-PreBi
dent Thomas R. Marshall mav be ngrood
upon as ttio compromise Presidential
candidate, in view of the refusal of
William (,. McAdoo to permit his name
to be presented to the convention.
Had McAdoo sought the nomination
thore would have been a bitter fight
as a large majorify 0f ,1,0 New York del?
egates are strongly oppos.-d to him and !
have favored Governor James M 1 ? ?.
of Ohio. They still favor Cox before I
all other candidates, but there ?? a
strong sentiment among the Tammam
delegation to back Marshall if the Vice '
1 resident is agreed upon..
The Tammany leaders at tirst refused
to believe that McAdoo was sincere in
his statement. They privately express
tne opinion that in view of' Mr Mc
Adoo's declaration of two months ago'
that no man could refuse the honor of '
a Presidential nomination if it came
to him unsought, the former Secretary
ot the Treasury and railroad adminis
trator was making another move to
have the honor come ro him without
his serking it.
McAdoo Really Out of Race.
Advices ?hey have received on th<
train during the last twenty-four hours
however, have convmeed them thal Me.
Adoo is out of it.
Charles F. Murphy, it. is understood
by his foi owers, would willingly sun
port Marshall for the nomination in
view of the change in the situation
brought ahout by McAdoo's re' re
ment -rom tho field. Mr. Murphy has
always regarded Marshall with on-1
proval. and if an agreement can bc
reached on Marshall at San Francisco.'
his followers expect him to ioin it
The certa.nty that William ,i. Bryan
will oppose the nom ? .of Governor

Attitude Disagrees With Braves
The Tammany party is resting to?
