In official circles to-night the opinion
was expressed that the President himself
has had something to say about the nam

was recalled that the President told the
newspaper men It might be better If little
Mr. Sayre were left free to develop hla
own Individuality instead of riariitm out
witn tlie name or a President of the

Furthermore, the name of baby Sayre
measures up well to ono of the require

Mrs.Ifaef fner, Mother of Four
Ahaiidoned Children. Ad
mits Motive.
The story behind the abandonment of
Richard nnd Jlinmle Haeffner the "down
to their last cent babies," as they have
been called and the earlier desertion of
their younger brothers, Karl, IS months,
and George, 8 months. Is that of a
woman's love for tawdry finery nnd ease
that she could not have with four little
ohlldren to eaic for and clothe on her
husband's wages, Intermittent and small.
Magistrate Frcschl In the Yorkvllle
Count, who held the children's parents,
George Frederick and Jeannette Hniffner,
In J5.000 each on a chargv of abandon
ment nnd sent them to the Tombs at the
suggestion of District Attorney Irkins,
said one might read the tale in fiction,
but scarcely believe It. The wretched father
was standing before him taking the full
responsibility, and his wife was seated
close by, her head bowed. An hour before
both had heard In the Children's society
rooms that little Karl had died of bron
chial pneumonia tn December 10, Induced
probibly by the exposure In "he rain on
the night of his abandonment Nolther
had known his rato unt.l then.
Karl has been burled In potter's field.
This babe and George, the Infant, were
abandoned by th Haeffners on November
15 last year. George was found In the
hallway of 504 Kast Fifty-third street alTd
Is now In the care of the New Vork
Foundling Asylum. The biby was picked
up by a pollecinan In somebody else's per
ambulator In front of 208 Kast Fifty-seventh
H.ierfner had appeared at the Children's
society yesteiday as he agreed tosdo til
night before Ills thin wife had stayed
there all night with Richard and Jlmmle.
Meanwhile, however, a reporter learned of
the death of Karl ami told the father In
Krnest.K. Coulter's presence It did not
visibly affect the parents, whatever Im
pression It produced on others, but Sunt.
Coulter Immediately called up Mr. Perkins
nnd the pair were ordered nrrested and
arraigned on n charge of ab.mdonment.
".My God," exclaimed Haeffner, "they're
not going to put us In Jail are they?"

Mrs. Haeffner, who is 26 years old, thin,
small and unimpressive, was dressed In
startling contrast to the good hut flashy
clothes ths.t w-r found In hr rtoin up

She wore a plain antique wedding ring
and blue silk glovis on remarkably soft

name, said Haeffner. Her mother con

where they used to go In the winter and
re;urn to the city In the summer, follow
ing the drift of trade. Haeffner hung his
head when he said he had abandoned the
first two children because his wife's health
was breaking He had reud of a child's

that to savo her health the .two babies be
Before the nrralgnmervt Mrs. HaclTner,
win said Vlttl declared that four
children wero too much for nny woman.
Her attitude was one of absolute In
difference. They were boyii and could
shift for themselves . It was not the
kind of a life she wanted ; they had
worn her to a shadow. That Is how
she explained It. Sho refused to speak In

to h.ivo a share In the profit from Do.

The witness was M K. Davis of 50

scribed took plaea when William C. Beer
was trying to Interest him And tho Walsh

"Secretary Bryan's name was men

Davis. "Beer said, 'My associates who
will hae a sharo In my profits out of any
work that Is done In Santo Domingo are
Mr. Glynn. Mr. Hamlll and no leSB a per

"Did ou give that construction to his

are making a very serious statement, and
you aro the first witness who has made
a reflection upon Mr. Bryan."
Mr. Davis said he regarded the Infor

would have gone to Banto Domlwto If I
had not thought that way," he said.
What would be tho object of reveal
ing to you tne names of the men with
whom he was associated?" Commissioner
Phelan wanted to know.

Mitchell' GnldlliK Hand.
The story of how Minister Sullivan was
guided In his olllcial acts In Santo Do
mingo by F. J. It. Mitchell, president of
tho Banco Naclonal, which Institution, It
has been said, was organized as part of a
si-hemo to exploit the country, came to
the Commissioner yesterday In tho affi
davit of F. Jean H. Hestres.
Hestres was Mr. .Mitchell's Interpreter
and stenographer and prepared for Min
ister Sullivan his otllclal report to Secre
tary Bryan, he said.
"Mitchell was present during the prep
aration of this report," according to the
ntlldavlt, "and was asked by Sullivan If
rach point was properly covered, as the
report was being dictated.
"Mitchell practically dictated and domi
nated everything that was done hy the
American Minister, giving mo and other
employees of the bank, and In fact every
one with whom I ever talked, that was

In regard to Henry S. Dickey, the
Bryan envoy, who was sont to Investigate
the Public Works Department, Hestres

and Mitchell."

It appears that four persons were slain
by the bombs rained upon the coast towns
two In Yarmouth and two In King's
Lynn and that the Injured number lesj
than ten. Tho property loss is Insignifi
cant and amounts to little more than 3,000
015,000), due Inrecly to broken glass and
the wrecking of three or four houses In
Yarmouth am King's Lynn. From a mili
tary standpoint the raid was utterly
profitless to the Germans.
The lapse of twnty-four hours has not
cleared the real mystery of the oerlal nt
tack. It cannot be stated positively
whether Zeppelins or Tauhen made the
attack , whether the Germans sent over
their dirigible dieadnoughts or relied upon
their speedy air scouts, the aeropUnee.
The evidence points strongly to Zeppelins,
however. The suddennews of the attack,
tho frightening clreumstnm es under which
It wns delivered, the stunning novelty of
the peril, all served to Inflame the Imagi
nation of observers and to color their
accounts of the visitation
7.epprllna Seen on Dntch Const,
Most persons Insist that Zeppelins
pased over the eight towns which suf
fered from or were endangered by bombs
Not u few say that they caught a glimpse
of a long, idea i shaped body winch
floated leisurely at a grout height and
which picked Its course surely and cer
tainly by means of a powerful search
light. This view Is supported by reports which
have come fiom tlie Dutch coast, where
observers, early In the evening, sighted
several Zeppelins flying over the North
Bea In a westerly and northwesterly di
rection, and where, early this morning,
Zeppelins were glimpsed ns they passed
eastward. Thero Is further support for
tho Zeppelin theory In the time table of
tho attack Yarmouth wiia visited at
S :2 0 P. M., Cromer nt S :30 P. M
rihcrlimham at S .40 P. M., Hunstanton at
10 P. M Heacham nt 10:30 P. M., Dors
Ingham at 10 :40 P M nnd King's Lynn
at 11 P. M. Deralnghani Is on the royal
estate of Bandrlngham -and within a
thort distance of Bandrlngham Hall, the
country home of Queen Mother Alex
andra. The King and Queen had been
visiting the Queen Mother but left Sand
rtngham Hall for London at 10 A. M.,
nearly twelve hours before the German
air craft passed over.
Among other vlllnges near by which
were Imperilled hy the bombardment were
Rnettlsham, Grlmston and peeston, so
that It may be said that ten' towns and
villages had an experience of the German
attempt to terrorise Kngland,
In spite of the evidences that Zeppelins
were employed thero is a widespread be
lief In this city that only aeroplanes took
part In the attack, The police at Yar
mouth are positive that the raiders were
aeroplanes. The small slzn of the bombs
dropped and the few explosives used tend
to support the notion. It Is argued that
Zeppelins would have carried much larger
bombs and would have thrown a far
greater number.
None of Italders Bronulit Pntrn,
Tha rumor whloh spread last night and
early this morning that a Zeppelin had been
brought to earth near Hunstanton by the
guns of a warship appears to have been
baseless. A despatch received this morn
ing from Hunstanton denies that a Ger
mun airship of nny sort had been captured
there, The denial was a keen disappoint
ment to the poople who thronged tho
streets to-day eager for news, us they
had hoped that at least one of the raldera
hail been taken In a manner most pleas
ing to the public, by the guna of the navy.
A rumor whtoh will not down, however,
Is concerned with the possible activities
of German spies or of traitors. More than
one person who watched the coast before
the German alrcfaft made their presence
felt Insists that there were light signals
flashed teawnrd from near 8hrlnghani.
Flashes of greenish blue light were ob
served and these, It was conjectured, wera
meant to inform the Germans that them
