Maty aubblns followed her hus band, Joseph Gubbins, a former Common Councilman of llio 2Sih Ward, and well-to. do wool Waste dealer, to Philadelphia from England to find him remarried with" out first having: obtained a divorce. Mrs. Gubbins No. 1 said today alio was determ ined that ho Bliould support her. Iter cbmlng has placed v the former Councilman In a tanglo from which ho )s endeavoring to extricate Iifnisolf by means of a divorce suit, charging her with desertion In England. In addition, Airs. Gubbins No. 1 charges that a group cf "political gangsters," Interesting them selves In tho behalf of Gubbins, havo of fered her $1000 to leavo tho country. "I nm determined that ho Bhall sup port, mo and I will not be 'bought oft or leavo tho country," sho declared. Mrs. Gubbins No. 2 declined to make any comment today. Gubbtns's attorney, Henry K. Fries, Bald that It was a "puro case of b,lack niall," started by Mrs. Gubbins No. 1. "Wo havo given thoso people $500. Any report that Mr. Gubbins offered her $1000 to go back to England is untrue," ho aid. Ho said that tho $500 was not given to her as "hush monoy," but refused to say why it had been given to her. "The testimony beforo Judge Brown in August showed that tho wlfo deserted tho husband, and not the husband tho wife,, as is tho contention," lio continued. "Judge Brown dismissed tho potltton be cause thero were noigrounds for bringing action for support. flAfter I confer with ,W. II. Wilson I may make a further Statement." Gubblna married his nrst wife in London In 180. They had six children, three of whom nro living. In 1800 ho camo to America and four years later married a Camden woman, now Mrs. Prlscllla Gub bins. There arc two children of tho second marriage, Winifred, 17 yeara old ond Percy, 13 years old. They Hvo at 612 Olney avenue, Olnoy. SON APPEALED TO GUBBINS. "William Gubbins, 23 yeara old, a son by the flrst wife, camo to America In 1011 ond found his father living In Kens ington with Mrs. Gubbins No. 2. Ho sent word to his mother, who camo to Phila delphia last summer. In March, William Gubbins went to his father and urged him to support his mother, picturing tho hard struggle sho was having In supporting the children. On thjs occasion, according to tha son, Gubbins had him arrested; on a charge of assault and battery. Magistrate Campbell, of the Belgrade and Clearfield streets station, sentenced him to Jail, but ho was discharged after serving part 6f the sentence, through the Intervention of friends. Mrs. Gubbins, when she first arrived in Philadelphia in August, learned that her .husband and his second wlfo wcro at Stpno Harbor.N. J... with their children. Sho took no action untl they relumed, when she had him summoned before Judgo Brown charging him with deser tion and asking ror separate support. The petition was dismissed because Judge Brown qould not determine, tho 'status of Gubbins, according to John Mc Conaghy, Jr., an attorney in tho Frank lin Bank Building, who represented Mrs. Gubbins No. 1. CJAlLS IT CASE OP BLACKMAIL "My mother reoolved a letter Decem ber 18, purporting to bo signed by John JL Strong, -vice president of tho West End 'Trust Company, stating that Henry IC Fries, my father's lawyer, had de posited $1000 in the trust company. This money was to be paid to my mother's attorney upon tho entry of the divorce itecree," said William Gubbins. Notice of the divorce proceedings was nerved 10 days ago at the home of George JfOrapklnson, 13U Narragansett avenue, where Mrs. Gubbins and her son are liv ing. Mrs. Gubbins, who is 67 years old, in employed as a servant In the home pi a Germantown family. The son is a houseman at the Rltz Carlton Hotel. Tompklnson. who la familiar with the lease, said Gubbins had given Mrs. Gub bins No. 1 $500 In cash with a promise of $1000 more if she would leave. She de manded a weekly allowance. A fourth of tha $500 was retained by the attorney, said Tompkinson. Six weeks ago, he said, Mrs. Gubbins went to her hus bands place of business, 2120 East Somer set street, in an effort to get money. The libel for divorce asserts that Gub bins and his flrst wife were married Oc tober 25, 1830. Gubbins accuses his wife of deserting him nine years later. Just prior to his coming to America.

It was pointed out that on at least a few of the points raised thero Is a wido difference of opinion on tho part of International law experts, and that It was very probable that on these very points lengthy negotiations with tho United States probably would bo necessary. Certain of tho members of tho Cabinet take tho position that there aro no exist ing precedents that opcrato In tho pres ent case. They hold that, whllo the United States has the right to Insist on no interference with vessels which carry car goes that aro boyond question composed of non-contraband articles, It cannot en force Its protests whero tho British Gov ernment Is in possession of positive In formation that cargoes of conditional con traband aro intended finally to reach Germany and Austria, oven though thoso cargoes aro In neutral bottoms and con signed to neutral flrfns In neutral coun tries. This Is especially the case In the various cargoes of meat stuffs which have been seized and which are said to be owned by tho big American packing flrms. Tho same holds true of other kinds of food stuffs and also with the "cargoes of abso lute contraband seized consigned to Italy and certain of tho Scandinavian countries, In tho opinion of thoso Cabinet officials. From conversation with officials It Is learned, however, that tho British Gov ernment receives In a perfectly friendly spirit tho feeling that America, in send ing tho protest, Is moved by tho Bamo feeling. The real danner of the situation Is not from the British Government, which rec ognizes the legitimacy of America's agi tation, but In arousing an unfavorable public opinion here which Is likely to turn In the direction of considering America's action unfriendly and lead to accusations that American sympathy Is governed by commercial profits. Tho Government faces a difllcult prob lem of tremendous proportions. In fact tho American Government has presented Inquiries which England will have tho utmost difficulty in answering,, England, on tho ono hand, is concerned with tho vital question of keeping certain articles out of Germany and Austria, and on the other with not unduly interfering with neutral commerce. Great Britain Is In difficulties not only with America, but also with other neu tral states, particularly those bordering Germany and Austria. It Is regarded as not Improbable that Great Britain will In the end be compelled to Impose pew principles of International law regarding (the treatment of contraband on account of the unprecedented situation of her opponents being surrounded by neutrals through which goods can be shipped. LONDON PRESS TAKES CONCILIATORY ATTITUDE Believes Good Will of Two Nations "Will Solve Problem. LONDON, Dec 30. Tho editorial attitude of the press to ward President Wilson's protest is gen erally of a conciliatory nature. It Is pointed out that only a summary of tho note has .been received, and that final Judgment should be withheld until tho complete text of the protest can be taken under consideration. "This question was bound to come up," says the Pall Mall Gazette, "and the only true solution Is to be found In the firm good will which exists between England and the United States. We are certain that tho English Government has done all It can to mitigate the lncon vonlence to neutrals which has been caused by tho exorcise of those rights to which we were strictly entitled as belligerents. Furthermore, we are certain that the Government is prepared to go still farther in the same direction If a way can be pointed out which doesn't militate against tho use of our greatest weapon, which Is being used In every legitimate way to bring the war to a successful and speedy conclusion. "But Juat as we are prepared to meet tho views of neutral nations In eveey way possible, so we must claim from them, and from the United States In particular, that they recognize our diffi culties and aid us In an endeavor to re gard their Interests." The Evening Btandard cannot think that a spirit of hostility prevails In the United States. It says: "It Is impossible to think that elther Presldent Wilson or the United States Government made a protest in any spirit of hostility to Great Britain. Nor can the navy exercise Its undoubted right to make search upon the high seas and to make seizures without mistakes. For any such mistakes there will be repara tion and upon the United State we de pend to regard them (the mistakes) with toleration such as Is due from a neutral Power to a combatant." The Evening Nep, owned by Lord Northcllffe, says: "Wo havo every confidence that, aa difficult as the question seems to be from a standpoint of international law, a, means will be found to adjust all exist ing differences. Americans know well enough that the matter Is largely one of common eenio. It Is unthinkable that two great friendly nations should, treat the matter in any except a friendly way." SEEKS DEATH AFTER MISHAPS Police Say Accidents Led Kan to Shoot Himself' A long series of accidents led Robert Torrance, 65 years old, 27!? Cro$key street, to ettempfsuiclde t his home this morning by shooting himself through the jaw, the police my. The man is now at the Woman's. Homeopathic; Hospital. He will recover. Neighbors declare Torrance has been singularly unfortunate. His Jaw was marked as th. result of bates kicked by a foorse. severe! yeara ago. Another time jw, fell and broke, sfvetul rtb. and Htor, In a fait tinctured kia ukull Tfee, mas idM has suif d vcXzoc tofinim- a otktr AMERICAN PRAUD BLAMED 6N$AR(iOBS Continued from Fare 6ns been of cargoes destined to neutral European countries With which the export trade of the United State has Increased by $p and bounds since the outbreak of War, Tho British represent that in the case of ono American vessel starched they found In the bottom of the hold a enrgo of copper painted to resemble iron. This deception, contend the British, could never have been Uncovered had not the vessel been taken to a port, and this entails delay. In soma cases, (ho British assert, tho American shlpperA have boon guilty of fraud In their Manifests, and tho dls? covory of this- practice In a few cases makes necessary a. search and delay of tho cargoes of' honest shippers, which Is Injurious to them, which Is regrettable, but which ls.necessary for tho protection of British Interests. Figures obtalnod here today upon the British contention that It cannot bo the British Interference which Is Injuring American export trade to neutral Euro pean countries or that It Is "responsible for depression In many American Indus tries" show that not only has tho Amer ican export trado with theso neutral coun tries shown n. remarkable Increaso since tho outbreak of war, but that tho trado with Europe generally, In splto of tho inevitable loss of .trade with Germany and Austria-Hungary, has declined but 13 per cent., ns compared with a decline of 17 per cent. In tha exports of tho United States to tho world at largo. Tha, Inference to be drawn from tis, ndmlL trado experts. Is that tho loss of buslttbss Is not duo to tho British action, but to a. lack of ships and to general busi ness depression. However, so far as the export trado of tho country Is concerned. It was In November within $40,000,000 of normal as shown by tho figures of 1913. The loss In exports to Europe has been about $19,000,000, and overy country thero has shown an Increase In purchases from tho United States savo Gormany, Austrla Itungary, Belgium, Russia and tho Neth erlands. Ambassador Pago at London cabled the State Department today that ho had pre sented tho American noto of protest to tho British Foreign Office. Tho actual text of tho noto was placed In tho hands of Lord Huldanc yesterday, acting head of tho Foreign Office, In the absence of Sir Xdward Grey, tho cablegram said. PROTEST NOT PEREMPTORY, SAYS SOLICITOR LANSING Time for XT. S. to ITako Stand, De clares Senator. WASHINGTON, Dec 30. Counselor Lansing, one of the framera of tho United States' protest to Great Britain, said the noto was so phrased that the urgency of a reply was not indicated. "Great Britain, of course, may desire to tako plenty of tlmo beforo replying," ho said. "Thero was nothing that hinted of a peremptory tone in the note." Officials today emphasized tho fact that tho protest rested upon a prlnclplo which this Government seeks to havo under stood definitely, and that tho question of contraband thus far was only a side Issue. The contraband problem, It was predicted, would be taken up In later negotiations, and specific cases which have como to tho Government's attention will form the basis of protest. Emphatic approval from tho Democratic sldo of the Senate of President Wilson's note to tho British Government was heard today. "Wo ought to stand pat," declared Sen ator Chamberlain, of Oregon, chairman of the Senate Committee on Military Af fairs. "I would not listen for ono mo- mont to excuses In this case, but would Insist they stop their Interference. It Is tha samo old question that Involved us In wr with Great Britain In 1S12, and they havo always maintained that they had the right of search at sen. It Is tlmo for the United States to stand Its ground." Senator Shafroth, of Colorado, said: "I approve the action taken by tho President. It Is a good thing; It will not bring hostilities, but It will bring an In quiry Into tho whole question. If tho shippers havo been practicing fraud, that Will be brought out, and the frauds will havo to stop. If frauds aro not being practiced, that also will bo established and the situation cleared." Senator Pomcrene, of Ohio, said: "The action taken In this matter is very opportune. It Is also very much needed. I fully approve of It." CARGOES FROM THIS PORT WERE HELD UP BY BRITISH Philadelphia Shippers Pleased at Protest on Seizures. In maritime and shipping circles It was said today that England has frequently exceeded its rights In detaining American vessels and that the action of the United States in demanding indemnification fdr tho loss caused by the delay Is only right and Just. One of the flagrant violations of the rights of American ships on the high seas. It was pointed out, was the seizure of the Amerlcaa steamship John D. Rockefeller, which left this port on September 26 for a Scandinavian port with a cargo of nearly 3,000,000 gallons of oil in her tanks. This vessel was overhauled by a British warship two weeks later and compelled to put Into Stonaway, England. Here she was bed for two weeks, while an exami nation was being made by British authori ties. This examination consisted of a cursory look at the manifests and much telegraphing and cablegraming. Each day the vessel lay at the English port meant a loss of at least 1500 to her owners. The action of Great Britain In this case was unwarranted, according to snippers. The vessel was a now one, fresh from the yards of the Newport News Ship building Company, There was no ques tion as to the ownership or nationality of the vessel. Other vessels held up by England have been the tank steamships BrindlUlo, Flaturia and the American Una steamship Finland. The latter case wa the one which led the State Department to take action. The vessel, with a large num ber of passengers on board, was detained at Gibraltar because she carried several tons of copper consigned to Italy, DEMANDS ON BRITAIN OPPOSED BY XT, S. SENATOR WASHINGTON. Deo. 80. President Wilson's declaration that the United States would demand millions of dollars damages from Great Britain as a result of the British Interference with American commerce is unnecessary at this time. In the opinion of Senator John Sharp Wil liams, of Mississippi, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. "I do not see the necessity of pressing claims against Great Britain for tho free dom with which British warships have Interfered with American commerce," aid tha Senator, "International laws and treaties fully cover such claims and there Is no need for haste. But I do not re gard the President insistence that the United States will demand these millions of dollars damages as an unwise step, for It Is a question that could have been raised at tha start.
