CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. 29
(By The Associated Press).?The
situation between the British and
the Turkish Nationalists was ??x
tremely tense to-night.
A note from Mustapha Kemal
Pasha to Brigadier General Haring
ton, the British commander, couched
in a hostile tenor, was considered by
British military circles here as
closing the door to a pacific settle?
ment of the Straits question. The
prospects of an armed conflict were
considered more evident than previ?
ously.
The note of Kemal demands the
retirement of all the British troops
from the Asiatic side of the Straits,
as the French and Italians have
done, and says in case of acquies?
cence he will withdraw the National?
ist forcea "slightly" from the neutral
zone.
Demands Straits Be Barred to Greeks
It also demanda the cessation of
what are termed the arbitrary meas
utos of the British authorities in Con
itatitin?pla in dealing with the Turk?
ish population and a solemn undertak?
ing that no Greek vessel -shall be. pet
pit'fl to pars the Dardanelles. Ik eon
e!?i<l-?! with a protest **r*irst the de?
struction of war mat?. !*'< in t? (^traits.
The note of Kemal was hi reply to
the '?"ft written communieatlon of Gen
erol Harington, transmitted through
Hamid Bey, the Nationalist repr?sent?
ai Constantinople, to Keraal in
Smvi na.
It is felt in British cireles to-night
that they w>uld be forced to modify
their conciliatory attitude at the mo?
ment the Turks bring up heavy artil?
lery with which they would be able
neriously to threaten the European
tide of the Dardanelles and also ham?
per passage through the Straits of
British vessels.
Six submarines of the British At?
lantic fleet have arrived and will be
used to prevent the transport of Turk?
ish troops across the Sea of Marmora
in the event of war between the Brit?
ish and the Turks. The British also
have posted batteries in strategic po?
sitions on th? heights of Chanliga,
eastward of Scutari, and at Mal-tepeh,
on the Haidar Pass railway, facing
Prinkipo Island. Theao positions are
on the Asiatic side of the Bosporus,
? short distance from Constantinople.
It is feared that only a radical modi?
fication of Kemal's bellicose attitude
can avert a clash between the British
and Turks. If Kemal persists in his
demand for the evacuation of the Asi?
atic sida of the Straits, f- is believed
the British under no circumstances
w'll alter their firmly expressed re?
solve to preserve the inviolability of
the ir>ternnffonal waterway.
General Thomas Marden, who has
iUnerseded General Shuttleworth In
command of the British forces at
Channk. is firmly confident of the abil?
ity of his forces to resist the strongest
attacks of the Kemalists.
Kemal Called to Angora
Some optimism was felt to-day over
the meeting between M. Franklin
Bouillon, the French envoy, and Mus?
tapha Kemal Pasha at Smyrna, where
there was a conference on the general
situation. Later, while .on the way to
Eskishehr, Kemal received a message
ca'ling him to Angora to discuss with
the government the Nationalist reply
to the Allied demands. Therefore Gen?
eral Harington has postponed hia de
ptrrure for Mudania to meet Kemal.
Meanwhile the Turkish leader has
given assurance that hia troops will
not advance further than the neutral
zone.
The belief prevails in British mili?
tary circles that Greece may bo asked
t evacuate Thrace by October 10. This
vould permit the Kemalists to enter
Thrace by ports on the sea of Marmora,
avoid a violation of the Straits and sat?
isfy th? Kemalist demand for posses?
sion of Thrace before the proposed
peace conference begins.
May Threaten Greek Mainland
It is h-ld that the Greek revolution
has radically altered the Thracian sit?
uation, and that there ?8 no certainty
the ;??.?w Athon3 government will be
able to maintain an efficient army
there, even pending the settlement of
peace. It is suggested that if Greece
refuse to evacuate Thrace an Allied
fleet may blockade the Greek mainland.

LONDON, Sept 29 (By The
Associated Press).?In connection
with reports circulated in the
United States that war had been
declared by Great Britain on Tur?
key, it was pointed out to-day
that no declaration of war would
be necessary, as peace never has
been concluded between the two
countries. Their relations are

In Jewelry
Four Men Rob Home of
Mrs. T. E. Bowles, Near
Schwab Residence, and
Injure the Housekeeper
Burglars early Wednesday evening
rifled the third floor apartment of Mrs.
Thomas E. Bowles, at 308 West Seventy
first Street, escaping with jewelry val?
ued at $75,000. The apartment build?
ing is directly opposite the side en?
trance of Charles M. Schwab's home in
Riverside Drive, Four men partici?
pated in the robbery, according to a
night watchman employed on the
premises.
Mrs. Bowles was dining out with a
party of friends, she informed The
Tribune last night. Her housekeeper,
Miss Paula Goodwin, returning after a
"?shopping tour, surprised the intruders
at their work and suffered Bevere in?
juries in endeavoring: to detain them.
Details of the robbery were refused
last night at the West Sixty-eighth
Street police station, though they ad?
mitted that a report of the burglary
had been received and that Detectives
Tiernan and Connors had been assigned
to investigate. The detectives had
made no report, it was said.
One-Half of Her Jewels Gone
Mrs. Bowles is the wife of Thomas E.
Bowles, silk importer, with New York
headquarters at 368 Fourth Avenue and
warehouses in Atlanta, Ga. She for?
merly was Virginia Bronson, a member
of the Bronson family of oil operators.
While she talked of the robbery, Mrs.
Bowles wore an emerald ring, which she
said cost $70,000, and other jeiVels
valued at more than $10,000. The total
value cf her jewels, she said, hud been
approximately S155.00U. About one
half, she thought, had been in the
stolen jewel caso.
"I was entertaining friends at din?
ner in the Colony Restaurant, Sixty
first Street and Madison Avenue, when
some one telephoned me fro*n West
Sixty-eighth Street police station of
the burglary," Mrs. Bowles said.
"Dining with me were Mr. and Mrs.
John Warren, of Atlanta, and Mr. and
'Mrs. Lynn Jones, of Texas. They
are intimate friends of my hus?
band and myself. We left our ?inner
and hurried home in a taxicab. I
found that the entire door casing had
been removed from the rear entrance
to my apartment and the door lifted
out. Miss Goodwin, my housekeeper,
was thrown down a flight of stairs by
the mon as she tried to detain them.
Although injured, she pursued them to
the street. They ran to Riverside.
Drive and escapea.
Had Little Insurance
"It io ray opinion the robbery was
perpetrated' by persons entirely fa?
miliar with the premises and aware
that I owned a large amount of jew?
elry. I have been instructed by the
police to say nothing until they* have
had an opportunity to follow up clews
in their possession. I hope that the
property will be recovered. I had
scarcely any insurance. Some time
ago I insured several of my rings for
55,000 when I was traveling. That if
all the insurance I ever had, and I
think that policy has expired. Mr.
Bowles warned me before he left for
the South Tuesday evening that it was
unsafe to keep so much jewelry in the
apartment whila, hallways were unpro?
tected. I planned to remove most of
my jewels Thursday morning to a safe
deposit vault. I wish I had done that
Wednesday morning."
The theory on which detectives are
working is that Mr3. Bowles had been
spied on for some time by diamond
thieves.
The story told detectives by Marino,
the watchman, is that four weil-dressed
men accosted him about 8:30 Wednes?
day evening, inquiring for the Bowles
apartment Ho believed them guests
of the Bowleses and gave them no fur?
ther attention until attracted by
screams a moment after Miss Goodwin,
Mrs. Bowles's housekeeper, had passed
him in the hall. Marino started up the
stairs to learn what had alarmed Miss
Goodwin, he said, when three of the
men who had made inquiries half an
hour earlier rushed past him and were
joined outside by the fourth man. All
ran down West Seventy-third Street
toward Riverside Drive. Marino was
able to give detectives a detailed de?
scription of the burglars.

By Boyden Sparkes
NEW BRUNSWICK, N, J., Sept. 29.?
Justification for the charge of official
bungling of the investigation of the
Hall-Mills murder was found to-day
when a belated autopsy was performed
on tho body of Mrs. Eleanor Mills.
Afterward Prosecutor Azariah M. Beek
man, of Somerset County, admitted that
ho had never ordered County Physician
William Long to perform autopsies on
either of the bodies.
To-night, presumably after Governor
Edwards at Jersey City had learned
these facts, he wrote a lettor in reply
to one from Charlotte Mills, daughter
of the murdered choir singer, in whioh
he said he was placing the entire state
police at the disposal of the prosecu?
tors of Middlesex and Somerset coun?
ties to aid them in tracking down the
murderer of her mother. Charlotte had
visited the Governor's office In Jersey
City during tho afternoon, but did not
see Governor Edwards. She talked
with his secretary and the letter was
written some time after the high school
girl had started back to New Bruns?
wick.
Doctor Explains
Prosecutor Beekman's admission was
made after Dr. Long said:
"I was never asked to perform an
autopsy on either of the bodies. I
was asked to make an examination of
the external wounds. I take my In?
structions from Prosecutor Beekman's
office and I was only asked to make
a report on the condition of the
bodies."
When this was repeated to Mr. Beek
man he said!
"Well, I never gave Dr. Long any
instructions about this case. I sup?
pose County Detective George Totten
gave what instructions he received.7
Ncvei'theless for two weeks Dr.
Long, in a series of interviews, has
giver, newspaper men the definite im?
pression that he did perform an
autopsy on the body of Mrs. Mills. He
ha3 said that he did not make such a
thorough examination of Dr. Hall's
body because it was apparent to him
that there was only one wound in the
head and that this had caused the
rector's death. On one of these oc?
casions he volunteered the information
that he had performed about five hun?
dred autopsies and therefore knew
what he was talking about.
Open Grave by Night
It was 2 o'clock this morning when
n group of grave diggers and detec?
tives went to the low mound of earth
that marked the burial spot of Mrs.
Mills in Van Liew Cemetery. They
worked swiftly by lantern light, speak?
ing only in whispers. Long before day?
break they had lifted the coffin from
the grave and- taken it to tho under?
taking establishment of Coroner John
V. Hubbard.
At 8:?30 o'clock this morning Prose?
cutor Beekman, detectives of both
counties and four physicians gathered
to perform the autopsy. The physi?
cians were Dr. Runkle F. Hageman, of
Somerville; Dr. L. A. Smith, of New
Brunswick; Dr. Long, County Physi?
cian of Somerset, and Dr. E. I. Cronk,
Health Officer of New Brunswick.
It was Dr. Cronk's statement that
l'h?re were three bullet wounds in Mrs.
fylills's head that first attracted the at?
tention of investigators to the sup?
posed autopsy of Dr. Long. Ha had
said repeatedly that there waB only
one wound in Mrs. Mills's body, and
that was at the top of her forehead,
midway between the eyes. Dr. Cronk
had made his examination of the
bodies at the behest of the family of
tho murdered clergyman.
Neck Nearly Severed
Dr. Cronk's statement was complete?
ly justified by the autopsy. The physi?
cians learned that one bullet had
entered the woman's forehead at the
line of her hair. This missile proba?
bly was responsible for a fracture of
her skull that was discovered to-day.
A second buliet had passed through
i the right check and lodged in tho brain
i tissue. A third had penetrated the
? right temple region above the ear,
i passed through the skull and had rr.lsed
| n lump on the scalp behind the left ear.
I In tho upper lip, just below the nose,
I -.vas a fourth wound, tbi\t might have
i been made by a spent bullet. It had
j not penetrated to the tacth. This
I suggested tho theory that it was a
I bullet that had previously passed
through the clergyman's head.
A studious examination of the
wound in Mrs. Mills's throat revealed
I what was described ?s a necklace in

From a Staff Correspondent
POUGHKEEPSIE, Sept. 29.?Vindi?
cated on every count, her affirmativo
defense sustained, and her baby son,
Guy, found legitimate, Mrs. Anne
Urquhart Stillman emerges triumphant
from one of the longest and most bit?
terly contested divorce suit? in the his?
tory of American courts, whilo her hus?
band, James A. Stillman, is quietly
making preparations to appeal the deci?
sion handed down by Referee Daniel
J. Gleason to-day.
The former president of the National
City Bank is silent in his defeat as he
was throughout the period of two years
and three months during which he em?
ployed brilliant talent, brought hun?
dreds of witnesses down from Canada
and spent more than half n million
dollars trying to prove that Mrs. Still?
man was guilty of misconduct with
Fred K. Beauvais, an Indian half-breed,,
and that the blonde, blue-eyed Guy was
not his son.
In his decision, filed at Carmel, Put?
nam County, and subject to the confir?
mation of Supreme Court Justice Mor
schauser, Referee Gleason ruled:
"I find for the defendants as against
the plaintiff, establishing that the
charges ajrainst the adult defendant
are not substantiated, that the infant
defendant is legitimate and that the
defense setting forth the misconduct on
the part of the plaintiff is not only
substantiated but is conceded, and the
plaintiff's complaint should be dis?
missed."
Mr. Stillman Is found guilty of mis?
conduct with Florence H> Leeds, a for?
mier chorus girl, and is declared to be
"the father of two children born to her.
The proof on this ?core is declared
by tho referee to be "overwhelming
and convincing." Th? charges of mis?
conduct with two women describedin
Mrs. Stillman'a affirmative defense as
'Helen" and "Clara" were not sus?
tained.
Referee Gleason loft here for Carmel
last night and filed the report at 10
o'clock this morning, leaving imme?
diately without making any comment.
In addition to his main report he filed
a subsidiary statement of ten para?
graphs containing findings of law and
opinion. In this he cited the fact that
Mr. and Mrs. Stillman were married
at Grace Church, New York, and gave
the dates of the birth of their chil?
dren.
Boy's Guardian Pleased
John E. Mack, guardian ad Htem
for Guy, immediately announced he
would ask Justice Morsohauser to con?
firm tho referee's findings here on Sat?
urday, October 7. At the same time
counsel for Mr. Stillman sought to
have the matter of confirmation come
up before Supreme Court Justice
Arthur Tompkins at Nyack on the same
day. Most of the open court hearings
in the case have como before Justice
Morschauser. It was he who granted
Mrs. Stillman the record alimony of
$90,000 a year. He also granted the
shifting of the hearings to Montreal
at the urgent request of the defend?
ant and in face of protest from Mr.
Stillman's counsel.
Outerbridge Horsey and Colonel Wil?
liam Rand, who has conducted most
of the cross-examination at the hear?
ings, arrived here early this morning
and waited in Referee Gleason'? office
for the decision. They would make no
comment on it. Cornelius J. Sullivan,
| of tho firm of Nlcoll, Anable, Fuller &
Sullivan, also refused to make a state?
ment, declining to say whether or not
the decision would be appealed. He
has said repeatedly, however, that an
adverse decision would be followed by
an appeal. He intimated that Mr. Still?
man, who was in or around New York
to-day, would have nothing to say. The
divorce issue, if Mrs. Stillman does not
elect to sue, will ultimately be taken
to Paris, where tho banker nao a resi?
dence.
Mrs. Leeds is in Paris at present.
Not long ago she created a sensation
by appearing at tho races with a
marvelous modiste's creation and what
the press dispatches described as
"painted legs." In the early stages of
the suit she baffled a small army of
investigators who were searching the
country for her. Her wlll-o'-tho-wlsp
qualities bocame proverbial. She would
bo reported in a certain stato or city,
and then would vanish overnight. Her
authentic appearance in Paris was at
first greeted with skepticism. It was

Favorite Dies on Way to Post,
But Bets Are Held Binding
The proverbial "dead one" has often
beim dumped on the public in races on !
the metropolitan circuit, but It re?
mained for yesterday's card to furnish
a striking example of how little chance
n bet'tor sometimes has. Thousands of
dollars were bet on a dead horse, and
the officials in charge took no cogniz?
ance of the circumstances.
Liwajto, a chestnut Vulcain filly,
owned by J. B. Smith, killed herself
in going to the post for the first race,
a dash, of six furlongs. This filly was
heavily supported and hammered down
to favorite at odds of 2 to 1 at post
timo, but never reached the post.
Liwaito attempted to bolt through an
oponing in the fence on the way from
the stable to the barrier and impaled
herself on a picket. Tho spear-like
limber pierced Liwaito's heart and she
?lied within & few minutes of the ?ool
as&t*
Despite all this there was no official
reckoning of the accident taken, the
officials allowing the field to start
without taking time out for the making
of a new book, and every cent that
was bet on the favorite was practically
i a gift to the bookmakers, although the
filly never reached tho barrier.
Bookmakers and players engaged in
a merry squabble, but the ruling of the
Jockey Club, which was passed about,
' settled the question?against the play?
ers. The rule readst ''Every horse
shall be considered having started and
j bo liablo for whatever is due for so
doing whenever its jockey has besn
weighed and its number displayed."

Platform Accepted With?

To Ask No Offices
By Emma Bugbeo
SYRACUSE, Sept. 29.?It was a wom?
an's victory. There was as much re?
joicing among the women delegates to
the Democratic State Convention to?
night aa if they and they alono had
influenced the decision of Murphy as to
the best candidate. Down in their
hearts they undoubtedly know that they
alone could not have effected the vic?
tory for Alfred E. Smith, but they also
knew that their unflinching determina?
tion to defeat Hearst had been a de?
termining factor.
The women yielded a double-headed
threat. They pictured a two-act trag?
edy. They pictured to the sensitive
imaginations of the party leaders a
scone In which woman after woman,
leader of the women voters of her
county, picked up her handbag and her
bundle of newspapers and silently, stol?
idly walked down the long aisles of the
Syracuse Arena, out of the convention
and out of the party. It would have
been a dramatic sight and not a pretty
one for the party's pride.
The second act of tho tragedy was
located in the State of New York and
the time was Election Day, 1922. There
were more than a few women in this
scene. They were numbei'ed by the
thousand?, women who could not vote
for Hearst, no matter how loyal their
belief in Democratic principles. They
would be not only officials and women
of influence up state, those who are
comparatively free from the domina?
tion of tho Tj?mmany organisation, but
women of New York City itself, women
who would say little In public but in
the secrocy of the ballot box would
refuse to vote for Hearst.
Says Woman Vote Can't Be Delivered
The woman vote is an uncertain and
complicated thing. It can never be de?
livered wholesale, no matter what the
issues or who the candidate may be,
but it was made evident at this Syra?
cuse convention that there are some
things the woman voter will not stand
for?some things at least that the poli?
ticians do not dare ask the women
voters to stand for.
The ultimatum of the fifty up-state
women county loaders duly reached
Room 222 last night.
Four or five women leaders (not all
from up state, though the majority
wera those who have been active in the
demand for Smith) waited for the re?
sponse. Their plans were made. If
necessary they were ready to order a
retreat from the convention this morn?
ing. In this they were to bo led by a
wealthy and influential up-state county
leader, whose family position is such
that no reprisal would ever touch her.
At midnight word came back to them.
It would not be necessary.
It waB only necessary to see the
change in their faces this morning to
know that their battle was won.
Women who had scuttled through the
halls with a worried look or had
adopted the pose of serenity and con?
fidence as part of the battle, these
women were smiling openly this morn?
ing and chatting freely with every?

Of "Breaking Loose"
"You never can tell when a

This was the only oornrnent

at Grand Central Station from

Syracuse. He was accompanied
by Grover A. Wha?en, Commis?

When he was told by newspaper j
men that former Governor Smith !

"But, boys," he continued, "I \
would rather not say anything
now."
The Mayor left immediately for

I will be for a continuation of the con- j

As already stated in The Tribune,
the Governor will be officially notified i
of his nomination on the nigh*, of Tues-1
day, October 8, at Cooper Union, at
which time he will outline the issues.
On the following night he will make
an address in Kismet Temple, Brook?
lyn. On Thursday he will speak in
Queens and on Friday he will leave
in a special car on his up-state tour,
speaking at night in Poughkeepsie. It
is expected that in his speeches in this
city the Governor will discuss transit
ways and means at length, and that
the development of the Port of New
York under the direction of tho Port
Authority also will be dealt with.
Power development and fuel and hous?
ing matters also will be taken up.
Lyons 200 Per Cent Loyal
One of Governor Miller's first call?
ers yesterday was Secretary of State
John J. Lyons, whose unsuccessful ef?
fort for renomination enlivened the
last day of the state convention. The
meeting was cordial.
"Governor," said the Secretary, as
the two grasped hands, "I want to con?
gratulate you on your ?nomination
and personally assure you that I do ]
not hold any grievance against you for !
my failure to be renominated. J shall j
do my best to assist in your election ?
and will give you 200 per cent support I
?if such a thing is possible."
"Jack," said the Governor, smiling]
broadly, "100 per cent will do."
The two officials briefly discussed the!
political situation _r.d Mr. Lyons,went
back to his office.
Secretary Lyons, who says that
George A. Glynn was more to blame for
his being, rejected by the state con?
tention than any one else, made merry
i last night over the retirement of
Chairman Glynn from the state com
?m?ttee,
[ "Why shouldn't I laugh," said Lyon-*.
[ "I've got three months to go, while
I Glynn is out now."
Colonel Lafayette B. Gleason, secre?
tary of the Republican State Commit
itee, had a conference with the Gover?
nor, presumably over campaign plans.
Gaorge K. Morris, of Amsterdam, the
new chairman, has assumed direction
of the state committee, but he will de?
pend on Colonel Gieason and former
Chairman Glynn until ho becomes fa
! miliar with the new job. Colonel Glea
! son said that he headquarters of the
i state committee would stay in M?n
ihattan, with an office also at tho Ton
I Eyck in Albany. It is expected that
I tho headquarters staff will be con?
tinued.
It is understood that Chairman Mor?
ris will reorganize the state executive
committee. It is composed of Repre?
sentative Bertrand H. Snell, chairmen;
James L. Hotchkiss, of Rochester; Nor?

Hearst Leaders Flee City
The Hearst boom for Governor col?
lapsed like a punctured balloon early
this morning. To-night Charles F,
Murphy in convention assembled named
a slate which contained not a single
name that Hearst oither suggested or
approved.
At 4 o'clock this afternoon the Hearst
leaders, consisting of William J. Cor?
ners, Mayer Hjdan and Joseph A.
Moore, convinced that the fight had
been lost, incontinently fled the city.
leaving the boss to name Alfred E.
Smith and the remainder of the state
ticket without let or hindran>.">.
It was the uncompromising attitndo of
Smith that made this result possible.
His steady refusal to run on the sama
ticket with his ancient enemy finally
forced Murphy to surrender. Ha'-I
Smith wavered for a single instant
the editor would have been put on the
ticket as United States Senator.
But Smith stood pat. And in the
wee smail hours, the boss convinced
that thei3 could be no compromise,
abandoned his efforts to secure har?
mony at any price and consented te
tho torms imposed by the former Gov?
ernor.
S;;: ;r.'s victory if not only a victory
over Hearst, It is a defeat of Murphy,
who in his twenty. yc-'_'_3 of leadership
bos nevar before been-compelled,to ac?
cept tho terms of any man "in his fol?
lowing.
Ilcsrsi'e Stand .a Mystery
What Hearst will, do is still a mys?
tery, but one which does not appar?
ently trouble Murphy, and which
'Smith refuses to re?xh~ as a menace to
his chances for election.
William J. Cenirc?B, .who has spent
all of his time find much of his mone?
in promoting the * editor's chance?;
heard tho decision s of the Tammaf.y
bo?jn shortly after luncheon to-day. Hia
comment was :
"Well, we're a cheerful lot of suckers.
Fot ilirec days Murphy has sot sol.
emnly in Rjom 222 in the Onondaga
receiving tho homage and tho sugges
1 tiens of the faithful. Never once h-*.s
he commiUed himself. Shortly after
midnight this Friday morning he con?
sented to send word that he would ba
: pleased to have the ?x-Governor cim
I sent to accept Hearst as a running
? mate on the ticket as a nominee fe?
i United States Senator.
Smith promptly sent back tho rep'**
! that if Hearst was nominated h<i,
Smith, wou?d not be a candidate.
This news Murphy mulled over fo?
j the next few hours, and it is reported
i that, he told his friends that Smith was
j disobedient and needed disciplining.
Tho dawning light, however, br?u'gh)
I a recrudescence of judgment, and
I through the portals of the thrpne roo:.n
! came the word that Smith could hav?.
j his own way.
Thereafter the making up of the re<
maindcr of the slate was the boss's
[ only concern. lie V.ad the work com?
i p!euH by the time the convention a??
! aombied in its final session to-night.
For the first time since he has beerj
I in Syracuse Murphy condescended U
| ?ttond the convention, vrhore ha satj
a scowl on his tinted countenance,
[at the head of the Tammany delega
jtion, and glowered grimly aa the dele?
gates obediently carried out his will.
Hearst Quits With Threat
Murphy may or may not have bee?
?moved to this mood of satisfaction bj
? the copy of a telegram h;;nded him br
j one of his satellites shortly after h?
completed an ample and satisfactory
luncheon.
