A melodramatic turn has been given to the death yes terday of Prances Leslie, tin American dancer who was n passenger on the Oceanic under the name of Anna Wilson. A cablegram has been received by Pnlted States Consul Albert Swalm at Southampton from Mr. Henry Schmltz of New York, mother of the young woman. In which the mother strongly Intimates that a man aboard the Oceanle poisoned her daughter. The name of tho man was given, but whether any motive was hinted nt can not be ascertained. The ruble despatch has been turned over to tho authorities nt Southampton, nnd their answer Is that absolutely nothing will bo divulged except that the Inquest ulll be begun nt Southampton to-morrow morning at noon. Mr. Swalm will attend the hear Auunt, March lG-John Mulraney. , ,K , ,hl. ntcr.1!)t (lf . ,.,,,.. Th( PRESIDENT STILL CHURCH FREE. Hoes to I'lrst Prenhyterlnii With Wife nmt IlnuHtitrr. Washington, March Hi. President Wilson has not decided which shall bo known as tho "President's Church" for thn next few years. Ho seems to have mado up his mind that for a time nt least he will go to any Presbylerlnn church he chooses anil that the selec tion shall not he done, until church time nrrlves every Sunday. Ho has con vinced Washington that ho Intends to worship unostentatiously. Last Sunday tho President went to thn Centrnl Presbyterian Church, a small edlllcc In the northeastern part of the city. To-day Mr. and Mrs. WlUon attended services at thn Klrst Presby- terlan Church. Tho pastor, tho Tlcv. Dr. Daniel C. McLeod, said to-night that he had not expected Mr. Wilson this morning, and that thn President had not Intimated thnl he would attend the First Presbyterian regularly. Not even the White House employers knew where the President was going. This secrecy made It possible for thn Presi dent, Mrs. Wilson and Mlsi Jesslo 11 son to enter the church without at tracting n crowd. After church they visited the Corcoran Art Oaltfry until luncheon time.
