Robinson, commander-in-chief of the battle fleet, it was revealed yester day. Her arrival Monday in New York was the net consequence of the report made by Admiral Robinson. Navy Department officials said the Arizona had been carefully searched several times, but the presence of two other women, said by Miss Madeline Blair, the bobbed-haired sailor, to be aboard the ship, had not been disclosed. Miss Blair’s story, however, was not doubted at the department, where it was pointed out that the women probably' had left the ship at Panama when Miss Blair’s identity was first discovered.
