Fiance to Greet Actress at Sea Navy Suitor, Commanding Destroyer, Keeps Abeam of Olympic All Night Until Liner Reaches Port Love Laughs at Port Rule Miss Bainter Denies Engage? ment to Lieut. Venable, but He Savs It's Truej The White Star liner Olympic, which ha* furnished the background for more than one motion picture comedy, served as the setting for a romance staged yesterday off Quarantine by a young naval officer and a well known actress. The ensemble included the liner's 625 saloon passengers, an American am? bassador, a United States Senator and one health ofiicer, an obliging deputy collector of customs and a bevy of re? porters. The story which ended so happily of? Quarantine for the lovers from stage and navy dates back to dinner time on Tuesday, when the vessel was steaming westward about 125 miles east of Sandy Hook. It was a delightful balmy evening, smooth se.t, colorful sunset. Captain Hayes was on the bridge ami hun? dreds of passengers were on deck waiting the call for dinner. Presently out of a slight haze to the eastward came the swift destroyer ingrain of the United States navy. She flew no signals, and for that reason ruade no particular impression upon the Olympic's bridge. Warship Huns Close to Liner "Guess he'd use his wireless if he wanted anything," remarked the skip? per casually, and the Olympic kept on her course at twenty-two knots. A little while and that drab war vessel was abeam, so dose indeed that her presence aroused the interest of John W, Davis, t'r.?1 American Ambassador to the Court of St. James's, who was chatting at the rail with Senator Wal? ter K. Edge, of New Jersey. "I see," said the Senator to the ? ambassador," that you aro receiving ? an official visitor on the nigh seas." "1 hardly think so,'' replied Mr. ! Davis. "The compliment is not forme. Ui :. ubtedly it is for you, sir." "Not so, Sir. Ambassador. The navy pays no such honor to the Senate," re : Mr. Edge. The statesmen then went below to v.. : with the other passenger?. Night fell and the destroyer was for gotten. At daybreak, however, she was still abeam. The liner slipped into quarantine after breakfast and the destroyer drop] ed anchor near her. Then she , lowered a pinnace which bore her com mander, Lieutenant Commander R. S. H. V? nable, swiftly to the liner. Wearing a regulation cape which shed the soft morning rain from his broad shoulders, the naval officer went aboard the cutter of the Health Officer and asked permission to board the Olympic. He was informed that the vessel was s'il! in quarantine and that after pratique had been given she was then under the sole jurisdiction of the Col? lector of Customs. Undaunted, the commander of the Ir.gram went aboard the coast guard cutter Hudson, lying alongside the liner, and sought to board the vessel. No, he said, he was neither there on official business, nor had he a boarding pass from the collector. He had just come in from Neport and wanted to greet his fianc?e. Sailor Suitor Boards Liner John Parker, the boarding officer, was sorry, but under no circumstances had he the power to pass the com? mander aboard. Commander Venablo then asked Par? ker if there was one aboard higher in authority and he was escorted to the deputy collector. His last obstacle was removed. Without permit or order for official business, the navy man cot ahoard and went at or.ee in search of Miss Fay Painter, the actress. Turning to the coxswain in his pin? nace, the commander shouted: "Tell Mr. Shinning to take her to the Nurth River anchorage!" "Ay, ay, sir," replied the coxswain and away went the pinnace. Rumor soon spread about the Olym? pic that the theatrical star was en gageil to the man with the navy capo, for he had informed the boarding of? ficer that he was there to meet Miss Bainter. his tianc?e. As the vessel approached her pier Miss Bainter sent for a reporter and denied that she was engaged to the commander. The Ingram had taken twelve of? ficers and 1G0 men of the Naval Re? serve north from Florida and folks were curious to know what she wa3 doing 126 miles east of the lightship on Tuesday. Put this question was apparently settled last night by a telephone call to The Tribune. The speaker said he was Lieutenant Commander R. S, H. Venable and that he wanted to correct an erroneous impression. "I am engaged to Mi6S Bainter," faid the voice. "She is my fianc?e, j She is hero now and will confirm it | o\er the phone. "I did bring up ?some reserves for a I cruise from Florida, but I first took them to Newport. I was coming in I from Newport when I picked up the Olympic. We were both on the samo! course. Nothing wrong about, a fellow! meeting his fianc?e, is there? Of course not. Well, I just called un to correct a wrong impression. Good by." Daniels Voices Sympathy For Commander Venable Reputations Must Be Obeyed. He Says; Believes in Navy Officers Marrying Early Prom Thn Tribune's Washington Bureau ,f^'\SH,INLGT0X' AU*- 25-"1 'xI^t i I had been in his place In peace .me I would have dono the same thing said Secretary of the Navy Daniels when told to-night that Lieu? tenant Commander Venable of the de ?n0yer Jn?ram mct the Olympic 125 miles off shore and escorted Miss Fay Bainter into poTt. Mr. Daniels said he had no report ol the incident. He inquired if Venable was in command of the destroyer when ho bit her for the Olympic "You know, I have always advocated naval officers getting married earlv " he said. ?If they break the regula iio?=s to tseo their sweethearts. 1 mu<t enforce the regulations, but I do it with a heart full of sympathy." Third Rail Kills Trackwalker Samuel Skimowich, thirty years old of 107 Second Street, employed as a trackwalker by the Interborough Rapid Transit Company, was killed instantly last night when he tripped over the third rail on the subway structure at Jerome Avenue and 170th Street. It was necessary to shut off the power in order to extricate the body. Traffic was halted for ton minutes. The body was taken to Fortlham morgue. j New Race of Congo Ape Men Climb Trees Like Monkeys Pygmies Who Dwell in Virgin African Forests Neither Lie Nor Steal and Polygamy Is Unknown, Says Dr. Vandenbergh, Who Announces Discovery A race of pygmies of such primitive characteristics that they are but little removed from the ape has been dis? covered in the virgin, forests of the Belgian Congo by Dr. Leonard J. Van? denbergh, a Catholic missionary and anthropologist, who returned yester? day from a tour of Central Africa which extended over eleven months. Dr. Vandenbergh was formerly a missionary in the Uganda. On his lat? est expedition he was accompanied by Dr. George Burbank Shattuck, former? ly professor of geology at Johns Hop? kins and Vassar, and a staff of motion picture photographers. The adults of the newly discovered tribe average only four feet, in height said Dr. Vandenbergh, and they arc known to the other fribes as the "Mambuti." Their language consist* of monosyllables distinguished by in? tonation. They are entirely different from the pygmies discovered by Sii Harry Johnstone near Lake Tang?n yika and are smaller. "They are very ape-like in appear anee, and the males can move wit) surprising agility through tre? branches. Although they are com pletcly uncivilized, they have ccrtaii simple virtues that mark them en tirely apart from the other Africai tribes. They neither lie nor steal, an? will only marry one wife. They wil not eat any meat but that from ani mais which they kill in the hunt. Timid of Other Humans "They are extremely timid of othe human beings and have been drives into the junble by the more- powerfu tribes. We found them in the Kilo dis trict of the Congo, about two hundre. miles from the western shore of Lak Albert Nyanza. We lived with them fo a week. "In hunting, however, they are brav? They dc not hesitate to attack ele phants, and even the rhinoceros. The will stay on the trail of a single el? phant for a month at a time, until the finally kill him by exhaustion. The attack him from the trees with sma darts and arrows." Dr. Vandenbergh told of anoth? tribe- the Masai?which is gradual! being terminated by diseases. He sai this tribe was composed of the brave; men he had ever met, and that the were subjected from boyhood to a rij orous training that was Spartan in i severity. While with this tribe he took a m tion picture of a lion hunt in which tl members of the tribe attacked the king of beasts armed only with spears ami knives. "We had the lion trapped," he said, "and It was only thirty yards from the camera when it charged on the Ma? sai. One of the tribesmen threw his spear, but missed. The second spear pierced the lion's forehead, went clean through the hea?t and filtered the shoulder. Beforo the injured lion could recover, another native rushed upon it and broke its backbone by a mighty blow with his spear." Follows Roosevelt Trail Dr. Vandenbergh went over the same territory ns the late Colonel Roosevelt, with the exception that he penetrated into th?- virgin forest, of the Congo. He said he had encountered one man who had hunted with the renowned "Bwana Tumbo." This man fold him the tribes had hoard of Colonel Roosevelt's death and greatly mourned the noted hunter. While in British East Africa Dr. Vandenbergh discovered an atrocity that has been committed by the Wa Kikuyu tribe for centuries, and his representations to the British authori? ties resulted in checking it. This atrocity consisted of placing dying members of the tribe in the jungle with a little food and a fire, anil then abandoning them to their fate, with the result that they were generally de? voured by hyenas. He said this custom arose through the superstition of the tribesmen that any one who touched the dead would die themselves within five days. In connection with the granting of autonomy to Egypt, Dr. Vandenbergh said that while he was in that country and the Sudan he had been frequently asked whether America would not take a mandatory for Egypt. The Egyptians told me that they hail more faith iu America and that they felt sure thai America would give them a business government and then autonomy. Dr. Vandenbergh reported a new dis? ease which had wiped out an entire village on the shores of Albert Nyanza The malady was discovered by a Dane named Stevens, who acted as a com? missioner of the Belgian government Only vague information of the disease which proved fatal within forty-eighs hours after infection, was obtained. He brought back complete photo graphic records of the customs un? habits of nine tribes, as follows: Th? Wamjika, Wakamba, Wakuyu, Masai Wakavirendo, Baganda, Banyoro, Ba sogo and the Pygmies or Mambuti. State Board Refuses Rate Raise to L. I. Railroad Appeal to Interstate Commis? sion Seen in Application for 20 P. C. Increase The Public Service Commission yes terdy denied the application of tho Long Island Railroad Company for a ?20 per cent increase in its passenger rates under the recent order of tho Interstate Commerce Commission. In denying the application, Acting Com? missioner Alfred M. Barrett said that since the Public Service Commission for the Second District had denied a similar application he felt that, aside from any other consideration which might arise, in the interest of uniform? ity of rates in the state the applica? tion should be denied. Commissioner Barrett made it clear that the commission would not rule at this time upon the advisability of the 20 per cent increse. If the Long Island appeals from the decisioi of the commission to the Interstate Com? merce Commission, as Morgan J. O'Brien, special counsel for the rail? road company, intimated would be done, the Public Service Commission will op? pose the taking of jurisdiction by the Commerce Commission and also will oppose the 20 per cent increase. Com? missioner Barrett directed counsel to prepare papers for presentation before the Interstate Commerce Commission , in the event of an appeal. Woman Confesses to Bigamy i Couldn't Read nor Write, hut Could Get Husbands, She Says After having pleaded guilty to a charge of bigamy before Judge Wad hams in the Court of General Sessions yesterday, Alice Joe, a nearo, twenty nine years old, of 25 East 132d Street, was taken to Tombs Prison to await sentence next Tuesday. Assistant Dis? trict Attorney Edelson noticed that in? stead of signing her name the defend? ant made a mark. "Why, Alice, you can't even read or write, can you?" asked Mr. Edelson. "No, boss, but I done caught two hus? bands," Alice, replied, proudly. Leroy Jackson, an auto washer, of 9 West 135th Street, was the complain? ant. He charged that she married him on January 15, when site was already married to John Joe, of 237 West 124th Street. The jury was selected to try the case, when the defendant suddenly decided to plead guilty. Poiizi's Manager Offers To Turn Over $10,000 Financie r Gives Receivers Keys to Numerous Boxes in Safe Deposit aults BOSTON, Aug. 25.?Robert do Ma sellis, who for two months acted as general manager for Charles Ponzi, voluntarily offered to-day to turn over to the receivers of the Securities Ex? change Company a fund of $10,000 which Ponzi had placed in trust for him, Attorney General Allen announced to-night. lie also made to the Attorney Gen? eral a complete statement of his rela? tions with the bankrupt financier. He protested ignorance of Ponzi's busi? ness methods. Ponzi turned over the keys of his numerous boxes in safe deposit vaults to the receivers and they began taking an inventory of their contents in an effort to uncover more of his assets. Tho total of notes held by depositors of Ponzi received at the Attorney Gen? eral's office to date amounts to $4,958, 760. It is expected the receivers' hear? ing will be resumed Friday. The Old Colony Foreign Exchange Company, which, imitating the meth? ods of Ponzi, promised 100 per cent profits in six months, took in $346,503 in its seventeen days of operation be? fore the authorities closed its doors. John E. Hannigan, receiver of the company, has been able to locate only $154,000 of assets and thinks he has a clew to $20,000 additional, leaving ap? proximately half of the money taken in unaccounted for. Bedtime Stories The Little Rabbit Sees Shadow the Weasel By Thornton W. Burgess .77??t look into a person's eyes Would you his character surprise. ?Striped Chipmunk. The little Rabbit looked in the direction in which Striped Chipmunk was gazing. At first he saw nothing but the stones of the old stone wall. Then something moved. He saw it for just a second, and then It disappeared. Then he saw it again, this time on another stone. The little Rabbit looked and looked. "Pooh!" he exclaimed, "that is only that saucy fellow who tried to drive me away from here. I don't see wh?t you are afraid of him for." "Sh-h," whispered Striped Chip? munk. "Don't say a word; don't breathe." The little Rabbit stared back at Striped Chipmunk, and it was plain that ha didn't understand at all why Striped Chipmunk was so frightened He opened his mouth to speak again but Striped Chipmunk hurriedl> clapped one hand over it. The littli Rabbit felt Striped Chipmunk shakint as if it were cold. He shook and shoo! and shook. In his eyes were such ? look of fear as the little Rabbit neve before had seen. Once more he looked over to wher he had seen the stranger. He was n< longer there, but a little nearer on th old stone wall a head suddenly poppe into view, and tiuite as suddenly dis appeared. He had only a glimpse o that head, but somehow he began t feel something of the terror which ha taken possession of Striped Chipmun! You see for just a wee second he ha seen the eyes of that stranger, an in them was such a look of fierceness and hunger that that one look told th little Rabbit that here was an encm from whom he could expect no mercy. Meanwhile, Striped Chipmunk he squeezed in beside the little Rabb and the two of them pulled the heads down between the stones of tl old stone wall and made themselv? as small as possible. There th? "Sh-Ji-h!" whispered Striped Chip? munk, "don't say a ivord." crouched side by side, cacti shaking as if it were the middle of winter and Jack Frost was shaking them. Striped Chipmunk put. his mouth close to the ear of the little Rabbit. "It isn't the least bit of use for tis to hide," he whispered, "Shadow will find us as sure as you have a short tail." "Then let's run," whispered back the little Rabbit. Striped Chipmunk shook his head, and he shook it very hard. "No," he whispered, "that will be (.it no use either. All we can do is just wait." So the little Rabbit and Striped Chip? munk waited and shivered and shook, and were quite without hope, and all the time Shadow the Weasel was gal? loping along the old stone wall in just the opposite direction. The next story: "Striped Chipmunk Tell? About Shadow." (Copyright. 1?10, by T. \V. Bur?iaa) ? U. S. Demands Liquor Facts In Eckert Case Federal Attorney Asks for Evidence of Dry Law Violations in Connec? tion With Cab Murder Another Arrest Is Made Staten Island Prosecutor Denies That O??icials Arc Improperly Interested Although some progress was made yesterday in the inquiry into the murder of Frederick P. ("Robert") Eckert, the alleged whisky runner, who was found shot last Saturday in an automobile on Old Tom Road, S. f., nothing was done toward investigating ', the existence of the whisky ring and the wholesale traffic in 1 icjuor which, tho murder disclosed. Alfred Norton, Assistant District At? torney of Richmond County, said yes? terday morning that he was going to visit Leroy W. Ross, United States Dis? trict Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, at his office in Brooklyn. The purpose of his visit was believed to be to introduce Mr. Ross to the methods of boot-legging in Staten Island and to lay before him a few facts. Mr. Norton started out, osten? sibly for Brooklyn, about. M o'clock yesterday morning. At T> o'clock Mr. Ross said he had not seen Mr. Norton, Ross Not Given Kvidence Mr. Ross said that no one had pre sented to him any evidence of illicit liquor transactions on Staten Island. "Rut," he continued, "I have taken a great 'leal of interest in this case. ; However, it is not up to me to take! action. I have not. seen any violation of 1'nited States laws. I suppose pro-i hibition enforcement agents are work- : ing on the ease. They havo not com? municated with me. "I should be very much interested ?f some one would cum' in with, evidence of whisky running on Staten Island, We don't make investigations here; we haven't a sufficient force." When he was told the names of two men alleged to be trading in illicit, liquors be said it was news to him. One of the persons is a relative of a Richmond County official and the other is on tlie police force. After Mr. Morton failed to appear,1: Mr. Ross seilt a le! ter last night to Jo? seph Maloy, District Attorney f??r Rich- ' mond County, who has charge of the! Eckert case, and asked that Mr. Maloy | furnish him with stl lthe evidence available in connection with prohib?-: tion violations in Staten Island. He said he would take immediate steps to prosecute every case wherein the Vol- , stead act was violated. Mr. Ross's letter was the only exhi? bition of interest yesterday on the part of the authorities in the wetness of Staten Island. Whether James Shevlin, Supervising Prohibition Agent, has done anything, is not known. He was : not in the city yesterday. There is a report that he has sent four of his best , men to Staten Island to try to get something on the whisky ring. It. is not reported that any dry raids have been marie on Staten island since Eck ert's murder and the presence of dry agents has not been corroborated. Chauffeur Arrested Mr?:; Katz was arrested late Tuesday night by Detective Sergeant James Graham and Detective James McKet trick. He is a chauffeur, and wa3 held on s? short affidavit charging him with murder, It was on Mrs. Eckert's com? plaint that he was arrested. Th<> whole murder mystery is soaked in liquor eteals. It was said yesterday that a short time ago Eckert tried to seize, with the aid of prohibition agents, 2,500 cases of whisky from ;\ Baltimore ?fc Ohio car in the freight yards in Tompkinsville. As the story goes, the agents were interrupted by the watchman and before they could return with some sort of a search war? rant the man to whom the liquor was consigned came and took it away. He is an Italian. With two others '? hi- was brought t?> Staten Island and ; questioned about Eckert's death. Mrs. Eckert had told the District Attorney that one? of them might havo been in the party? seen by the night watchman of the manufacturing plant close to the place where .the death car was found. Mr. Maloy wag away yesterday for the greater part of the day. In the ? morning, however, when asked about, tho whisky ring, he did not seem ?n t? rested. He also said that the idea i that Staten Island public officials had anything but a proper interest in tho details of the Eckert case was not worth commenting upon. Two other persons have been charged with the murder of Eckert. They are William Moloney, proprietor of the hotel at which Eckert and his wife lived for some time just prior to his death under the name of Hayes, and Charles Kane, a hackman, in whose automobile Eckert was found. Mr. Maloy said yesterday that he was considering tho possibility of having a grand jury called to investigate the murder.
