MISS STILLMAN IS !
READY TO DEFEND

Banker's Daughter Would
Testify to Bolster Belief

CHECK UP JILTED WOMAN
Detectives Visit Hotels and
Apartment Houses to Verify*
Her Startling Tales.
Two of the most puzzling as well as
Interesting prophecies yet made in the
suit for divorce filed by James A. Still
man, president of the National City
Bank, against Mrs. Anne Urquhart
Potter Stillman, became known yester
day.
First there came the story?vouched
for by reliable authority?that H.
Phelps Clawson of Buffalo and Miss
Anne Stillman, daughter of the Still
mans were prepared to appear before
the court or referee and tell stories
that will leave no further question re
garding the status of the boy Guy
Stillman.
Second, it was declared by equally
trustworthy persons that lawyers for
Mrs. Stillman were prepared to offer
affidavits to the effect that the banker
and the still mysterious second woman
were together oftefl from the latter
part of 1914 until late in 1917 under
assumed names in an uptown apart
ment house and in a house in Garden
City.
Tn the first place it was said that Mrs.
Stlllman's lawyers would produce, in
person or by corroborated affidavit, the
testimony of Mr. Clawson, Miss Stillman
and at least six other persons whose
names are always likely to be found
ajnon/r the list of guests attending pri
vate functions given by persons of aocial
prominence in this city, to the effect
that from February t, 1918, .until Ouv
Stillman was born, November 18, 191S,
the Stillmans lived together in all the
unity, peace and concord expected in the
domestic llt>' ot normal married people.
Furthermore, there will be produced
the testimony of -Mr. Clawson in person,
and he l's expected to tell of his havimr
been a sruest In the Stillman home dur
ing February. 1918, and his failure to
observe anything suggestive of estrange- ;
ment between Mr. Rnd Mrs. Stillman i
Naturally this will have direct bearin" ,
upon the banker's secondary charge that j
Ouy is not his son.
Testimony of UUa Xtlllmkn.
.lust what Miss Stillman will testify !
to, If she doeg appear, Ts not known. She 1
Is said to have gone to her mother's i
lawyers, saying that she liad thought It !
all over and that It seemed to her to be :
? her duty to stand by her mother. Shu ?
related all that she knew and all that i
she had heard. She was told. It Is said,
that her testimony was not absolutely
necessary and that she would be doing1
no more than her duty to herself If she
were to think it over .".grain. She Is said
to have replied that she had done noth
ing but think of the case for months.
l>espite all this there is more than a
possibility that Miss Stillman will not 1
he called upon to testify?not because j
her tes'imony would not be important, I
but because her mother's lawyers are
of the ojilnion that they can win their
points without the jrirl's testimony. Mr.
Clawson will he the witness who will be
depended upon by John 15. Mack, legal
guardian for Guy Stillman.
"The public has been impressed with i
the fact that neither Mr. nor Mrs. Still
man hap much chance of obtaining a
divorce In this State," said Mr. Mack.
"T should like to assure you that there
Is no remote chance that this child* Ouy
Stillman, will suffer at the hands of the I
court We shall show with consummate I
ease and by a great flood of testimony
end evidence that the charge that Mr. -
Stillman makes affecting Guy is utterly
baseless."
This much about this particular phase !
of the i-as? is known. Clawson will I
tell of his numeroxis visits to the Still- ;
man home at Pocnntico Hills in the late !
winter and early sprint of 1918. He I
will describe in great detail (for a rea- |
won not yet ascertained) a social gath
?ring in the Pocantlco Hills house on
the night of January 26, 1918. In 'he
house at that particular time were Mr.
an'! Mrs. Stillman and Ferd> Beauvala,
the Canadlaln guide. There were a num
ber of persons prominent In society pres
ent and there were men and women
there who had been told and who had
* repeated stories that had come from
'Canada about Mrs. Stillman and the
guide.
Tt would be rather difficult to imaalne
3 man more attentive to his wife than i
Mr. Stillman was to Mrs. Stillman tlvat
night, it was said. The presence of the
Canadian woodsman prompted one of
the guests to make a remark that was
relayed to the banker.
Just what Mr. Stillman said when the
statement reached his ears will be told
to the referee. And this statement will
he offered as evidence on the side of the
youngster. Then Clawson is < xpe< ed to :
'proceed with his story of life ? 1'ocaa
tJco Hills.
Scorned Woman Telia Tnle.
Tn regard to the mysterious added co
respondent, it was said yesterday that
she has come forward with a story of a
violent quarrel between herself and Mr.
Htll'man concern ng the latter's apparent
preference for Florence Jjiwlor I?eeds,
the chorus girl for Whom about fifty de
tectives are now searching. There is no
way. It seems, of checking up this rom
an's testimony, and for that and other
reagOfts Mrs. Stlllnvin's lawyers have not
been too eager to exult over her appear
ance in the case.
Nevertheless, detectives ar> going
about with assortments of photographs
of this woman, and asking hotel men

NEW YORK DOESN'T READ,
SAYS 'MAIN STREET' AUTHOR
Sinclair Lewis Blames the Newspaper Columnist for
Supplying Terse Paragraphs, Thus Saving "the
Tired Business Man" Trouble.
New York may not be provincial, as
Slnelatr Lewis, author of "Main Street. ;
told his hearers in the Town Hall yester
day that it wasn't, but there are more
people hern who read more titles and
fewer books than any other place in the

in the newspapers, who do the read ns
and provide torse criticisms for the pub

Sir. Lewis suggested h?w^?r, tha
the public read more of its native lite a.
ture" and thus encourage home P|"odut"
tlon &nd give the American aujor
chance to compete with his British
hrother. It's because tho American
novelist isn't known and appreclated a
home that he isn't recognized abroad.

HIS CORNET PLAYING
Yonkers Man Places Damages
at $30,000.
Berthold Sprintzer of Yonkers took
the stand before Juntie# Young and a
Jury In the Supremo Court at White
Plains yesterday and testified that the
principal reason why he has brought
suit 'for |30,000 damages against Oriot

longer permanent and that the directors
may discharge him because he cannot
properly perform his duties.
The accident occurred In January. I

company Is alleged to have run over
Sprintzer, facturing some of Ills ribs
near the point where they Join the

American novelist will go Over to Eng
land and lecture," threatened Ml. Sin
clair. "Art is like burgundy. It is con
siderably Improved by a sea voyage."
The author of one of to-day's beet
sellers deplored the fact thut a small
croup of persons could suppress books
of real merit. "In order to get all the
things out of a book that has been
officially banned you'd have to know all
the bad things before you read it," he
! said, "and if you read it I don't see how
I it could hurt you."
In answer to a question why he wrote
"Main Street" the young author, who is
slim, tall and with fair hair parted in
the middle ovsr a broad brow, replied
i that It was his country. "New York has
' its Main street, yet New York is not
i Main Street. New York has its faults,
! but they are the reverse of Main Street.
A stranger can stand up and abuse New
j York and get away with it without being
I tarred and feathered."
WHALEN SUSPENDS
BUS SUPERVISORS
Jacob Weinmann, Arrested on
Charge of Bribery, Held
in 91*500 Bail.
Charges made to ex-Gov. Whitman
two weeks ago that city employees were
exacting graft from operators of munici
pal buses were carried further yesterday
when Qrover A. Whalen, Commissioner
of Plant and Structures, suspended the
three bus supervisors and caused the
n-rrest of one of theqp, Jacob Weinmann.
cn an accusation of bribery. Weinmann
had oharge of the licensing and assign
ment of buses in Manhattan.
Isidor Mushnick, one of the bus own
tis. told the Commissioner that lie had
paid $300 to Weinmann as a fee for
giving him one of the more profitable
routes. Mushnick told Harry E. Dewis,
District Attorney of Kings, that lie had
liandcd Weinmann a check for $125 and
>175 cash in a Brooklyn restaurant
Questioned by the District Attorney,
Weinmann at first denied that he 'bad
received anything. The District Attorney
then produced a check for $125, made
payable to bearer by Mushnick. The
check, according to the District At
torney, bore the indorsements of Mrs. B.
CJedde, Weinmann's mother-in-law, and
of one Honigfeld, a butcher of Wein
mann'? neighborhood. Being thus remind
ed, says the District Attorney, Weinmann
acknowledged that he had received the
check, but said it came to htm as a
present. Weinmann was held in $1,500
bail on a charge of bribery.
Commissioner Whalen's suspension of
Frederick Richter, chief superx'lsor, and
of his assistants. Weinmann and Robert
Donofri, took place after he had a. talk
with them yesterday morning. Last
night Whalen said there was no evidence
against Richter or Donofri, but that
while the investigation was on it was
better to proceed with a new staff. He
Installed Martin J. White as chief super
visor of buses and will give him two as
sistants.
Bus owners keep all the money they
take In as fares and pay the city noth
ing. Some routes are much fatter than
others. Each bus on the Eighty-sixth
street crQPstown line, for example, takes
in about ?50 a d<ay and operation costs
no more than $25 a day. Competition
for such routes is close.
Benjamin Shepard, counsel to the New
York Auto Bub Owners' Protective Asso
ciation, said at a meeting on March 13
more than fifty owners told tales of
graft. On the day after the meeting,
Shepard said, a man who was known to
have attended it was laid off by the city
authorities.
DISMISSAL OF GOULD
DIVORCE ASKED TO-DAY
Justice Mullan to Act on Plea
of His Attorneys.
Justice George V. Mullan. In the
Supreme Court, will be asked to-day !
to dismiss the complaint made by Mrs. I
Edith Kelley Gould. In her action for
divorce against FYank J. Gould, on the ]
ground the decree of divorce which he j
obtained In Paris is valid because it
was on the "statutory grounds of the I
State of New York," and that therefore |
he was no longer her husband when j
she began her action on April 23, 1M0.
Leonard & Walker of 185 Broadway,
attorneys for Mr. Gould, have served
notice upon Wellman. Smyth & Sco
fleld, attorneys for Mrs. Gould, th.it
they are to more for the dismissal. If
the motion yi granted, It will make
useless also a suit for separation which
Mrs. Gouud began simultaneously with
her divorce action. Mrs. Gould's -it
torneys, however, intend to contest the
validity of the Paris decree.
In her separation complaint, made j
public when Mrs. Gould obtained an :
order permitting service of her husband j
through the mails there were many
unusual allegations. Ho was lntoxl- j
cated for long periods, she alleged, and I
several women were named as co
respondents.

Brooklyn Man of Big* Sales
Without Law.
Prohibition Commissioner John F.
Kramer is expected to arrive here to
day from Washington to decide whether
the seizure on Monday of $250,000
worth of domestic and imported wines
in the warehouse of the Menorah Wine
Company at 110 Bowery was legal.
Attorneys for the Garrett Wine
Company, of which the Menorah Wine
Company is a subsidiary, had a talk
with Commissioner Kramer in Wash
ington yesterday, at which they pro
tested against the confiscation, charg
ing that the enforcement agents under
Chief Agent Ernest S. Langley ex
ceeded their powers in making the
; seizure.
After talking over the long distance
j telephone to Agent Langley and Pro
hibition Director Charles R. O'Connor
I about the case. Commissioner Kramer
: signified his intention of coming to the
city to investigate.
Pending the inquiry Commissioner
Kramer ordered the discontinuance of
the removal of the wines from the Bow
ery warehouse to the Knickerbocker
warehouse, which had been going om
since late Monday afternoon. There
were 500 barrels and 2,500 small cases
of wine involved in the seizure, the
larger portion of which had been carried
away in automobile trucks before the
order came to halt the transfer.
Permit la Still Pending.
It develops that an application for a
liquor permit had been made on March
14 by the Menorah Wine Company to
manufacture and sell wines for sacra
mental purposes through the Garret
Wine Company, which has a permit and
is a reputable concern of long standing
As far as could be learned yesterday the
Menorah application has either been
approved in Washington or approval is
pending.
Agent Langley declared that he had
evidence to show that the Menorah
Company had established six branches
In this city and wine had been purchased
at each of these by enforcement agents
without permits, and that those places
were doing business without Government
authorization.
i Agent l^angley also charges that the
! six branches have been selling wines to
| "dummy" rabbis, who are authorized
under the law to approve ten gallons of
j wine each year for each Jewish family
In their congregations, to be used In the
| practice of religious rites In the homes
Director O'Connor said last night he
was investigating a report that written
authorizations by rabbis for Jewish
families to purchase wines were being
sold on the East 81de at $2 apiece for
ten gallon purchasing orders.
Hear* M*njr Are Forced.
"We have on file in our office here
seVeral hundred approved applications
for rabbis to authorize the purchase of
wines to each family In their congrega
tion," explained Director O'Connor.
"Kach approved application contains the
number of families to be served an<l
thus far we have found no case of
violation.
"A rabbi signs a written order to each
family, any member of which can take
it to a wine merchant holding a permit
and purchase the designated amount.
Only yesterday it was called to my at
tention that many of these authoriza
tions were being forged and bartered on
the East Side and elsewhere In this
city. So far as I know the Menorah
Wine Company at 110 Bowery had not
been selling along these lines."
Rabbi Rosen of the First Rumanian
Congregation, at 89 to 93 Rivington
Ktreot. has the largest family congregn
tlon in New York to be served with
sacramental wines. According <o his
application he has 2,500 families scat
tered throughout the city, to which ]
25,000 gallons of winee are eligible each
year.
"We are also Investigating a. report
that a number of rabbis' names harp (
boon forged to family orders." said Dl- i
rector O'Connor. "It can l><> readily seen
that this would be a somewhat easy mat
ter. though not easy to detect, as no in
dldlvual record of sacramental wine pur- !
chn*e are required to be filed in my of
fice. Up to now we have taken the
word of raJbbls that there wore no Ir

New York has Septupled Since this Business Began
New York on Lower Broadway in front of the Old A.
T. Steivan't Store, a few years before the Wanamaker busi
ness was founded.
A little piece which treats of
New York and Philadelphia
"Befo' de Wahr
The entire population of New York City in
i860 was 805,358; of Philadelphia, 565,529.
Broadway and Market Streets were paved with
cobble stones.
Stages drawn by two and four horses and horse
cars were the main means of public conveyance in
New York.
The elevated railway was not establishd until
1867.
Bowling Green and Lower Broadway were the
retail center.
There were no automobiles, telephones, Marconi
telegraphs, electric lights or electrical machinery,
no Brooklyn bridge. Central Park had just been
opened.
What happened in 1861 |
In April, 1861, on the day the first shot struck
Fort Sumter, the little ("foolish" so called) store
commenced with but one employee to assist its two
owners.
By "doing our own work" and with a few ad
ditional helpers and the establishing of a strictly
one price system and return of cash for goods re
turned, and with the four cardinal points on which
we based our business, the growth of the business
required more room, though we then occupied the
entire six story building from Market Street to
Minor Street.
Then there came a great disappointment to us.
We could not arrange the purchase of the adjoining
properties.
Out of this set-back came the greater benefits
when we bought, in 1874, the old freight station at
Juniper and Market Streets, in Philadelphia, and in
1875 and 1876 remodeled it for what was then con
sidered by multitudes of people
"The New Kind of Store" I
Old residents of Philadelphia and merchants
generally living at that time will certify this state
ment that no business venture in any city in the
United States created such a sensation. It was
not wholly because the store was on one floor from
Chestnut to Market Streets, from Juniper to
Thirteenth Streets, but the basis of the business
transactions were different from any ever known
in the United States in four respects:
1. A store organized in the interest of its
patrons and for their pleasure and comfort equally
with that of its owners.
2. Prices marked on each article in figures and
prices fixed.
3. Unsatisfactory purchases returnable, not
for exchange, but for full cash return to pur
chaser.
4. A pre-eminent purpose to collect and main-,
tain superior qualities of merchandise and to ob
tain, by a large volume of business, a moderation
of prices without substitution of imitation articles
made to undersell the genuine qualities.

MUSIC
The Schomacker
?a Great Piano
For 83 years the SHO
MACKER has been one of the
few leading pianos.
First made in Philadelphia
in 1838, its fame soon spread.
For nearly half a century it
was the chosen piano of every
successive Presidential family
in the White House, and of dip
lomatic social life in Washing
ton.
It won awards and honors at
every important competitive
exhibition in America.
Its prestige has grown
among musical people through
out the nation, until now its
Rivals are indeed few
and those the choicest pianos
made.
There is a reason for this
prestige of the famous SCHO
MACKER piano. Its original
maker was a genius, and those
who now carry on his work
have inherited his musical
knowledge and skill. Persons
who know tone recognized at
once the exceptional quality of
the SCHOMACKER tone. The
number of such persons has in
creased, with the general in
crease of musical knowledge;
and with this increase has
grown the demand for so ex
quisitely satisfying an instru
ment.
The SCHOMACKER piano is
sold in New York only in the
Wanamaker Piano Salons. It
is priced $800 to $1850; with
the AMPICO reproducing piano
attachment the price is, of
course, a little more.
The SCHOMACKER? like
all the pianos we sell?Chicker

The manufacturer said
?"Last time you had
these tires, some months
ago, you didn't have enough
to satisfy the demand. So
we thought we'd take a
chance this time, and
double your order. Do
you want the extra thou
sand?"
DID we? We sold out
last week in two days, and
were wondering what to
do about customers who
came too late.
Now we can satisfy a
few more hundred people.

Topcoats of
First quality
It is conceded that
makers of men's topcoats
?with a few not-worthy
to-be-considered exceptions
?put all they know of
style and cloth and work
manship into the topcoats
they make.
Some one must excel.
May we, quite modestly,
express our belief that
none surpass the new
spring topcoats which our
tailors ? working along
lines laid down by us?
have turned out?
For example?
A group of new spring
topcoats at $60. The tweeds
and cheviots of which they
are made are imported?
good tana and browns; and
an excellent variety of her
ringbone effects in gray;
all lined with silk serge.
The models are Chester
field, single and double
breasted, and a loose drap
ing box model, single
breasted.
Mighty good!
Other topcoats, $40 to
$65; last spring prices
were $50 to $95.
One of our suits
for young men
Blue unfinished worsted.
Three-button coat.
Single-breasted model.
Good notch lapel.
Flap-covered pockets.
$50 the suit.
Shirts of fine
French flannel
Stripes, of course?quiet
blues and lavenders and
grays. Generously cut.
The fastidious man will
not be able to criticise
their finish.
Very appropriate shirts
for Anril wear. $6 each.
