PEGGY JOYCE BACK;!
RESENTS SIREN TITLE
Has No Idea Why Men
Gather Around; Not Butter,

JACK DEMPSEY -PEACH',
? I
Admires His 'White Soul/j
but Isn't Considering:
Another Husband.
BEINGS $1,700,000 GEMS:
Beady to Fight Movie Ban;
Explains Suicide of Suitor j
in Paris.
Peggy Hopkins Joyce got baak from
Paris yesterday without any husbandor,
she said, immediate intention of
enquiring a fourth. She was laden
with jewel cases, whose contents she
valued at $1,700,000, and has hired a
detective bodyguard to protect them
egalnst the crime wave.
Her six trunks went to the appraiser's
stores for examination and
her jewels to the Custom House. Late
In the afternoon all the gems were
returned to her except a $14,000 diamond
and emerald plaque. She said
her third husband, J. Stanley Joyce,
bought the plaque, duty paid, from
< artier in Paris two years ago and she
had never brought it to America before.
The Collector of the Port doesn't
doubt her. but will hold the piece for
official corroboration. Her trunks
jwobably will be released this morning.
The decision of the Motion Picture
fl'heAter Owners Association, made in
Washington on Thursday, not to permit1
movies of her to be shown, disturbed j
her so that she stamped one of her j
feet and said that chivalry was dead in
America if she, who had committed no
crime, was really to be barred from the
films along with criminals. Val O'Farrell,
head of a detective agency, who
met her at the pier and helped her retrieve
her jewels, said last night that
Peggy would make pictures just the
same and would go to California in j
about three weeks for that purpose.
"With Jhom has she a contract?"
O'Farrell was asked.
"Aak L. J. Selznick," he said.
May Appeal to Hu>?.
The New York Herald telephoned to '
Pewis J. Selznick's house. David Selz- j
nick answered. He was asked if the'
L. J. Selznlck firm intended to produce !
any Peggy Hopkins Joyce pictures.
"It docs not," he said. "The idea
never received serious consideration." )
Miss Joyce, through her attorneys,
"William J. Fallon and J. H. Gilbert ot
152 West Forty-second street, probably
will try to have the theater owners association
lift its ban. No lawsuit was
contemplated, it was said at their
offices yesterday, but a letter might be
written to Will H. Hays setting forth
the high character of Miss Joyce and
asking that the injustice done her be
corrected.
She arrived on the Maurentania with
an English friend. Katherlne Maloney,
who has been on the stage. She wore a I
\olumlnous sabl coat, a small brown!
hat. u black silk crepe dress, heliotrope
silk stockings and black patent leather
pumps. She held fast to a heavy hand
hag containing the Jewel cases. When
reporters encountered her she asked
them at once to give her a "square
d'-al" and to publish her denial that;
she had been expelled from France be- !
cause of the death of Ouillermo Er- I
razurlz of the Chilean legation In
Farts. The facts were these, she said:'
"1 met Billy Errazuriz five years ago j
at the trial of his sister, Bianca De |
Hiulles. who was acquitted of the mur- j
dor of her husband. I loved him. t
know now that he is the only man 11
every-truly loved. But of course he was 1
married. I did not see him again until \
ve met in Paris a little while ago. He]
told me he was separated from his wife :
. tinl was trying to get a special dispensation
from the Pope, ^o that they 1
could be divorced, but, of course this1
was very difficult.
Hilly'* Suicide Party.
"I promIred to marry Billy at soon as
lie sot the divorce and in the meantime
to regard him as my best hoy.
"I was engaged to Henri Lecellicr.
o"<- of the wealthiest men In France,
hut I broke the engagement for Billy. |
< in the night before Billy's suicide sev<rwl
of ns had a little party. We had
some champagne, but not too much, and
Billy didn't drink a drop. He pleaded
w ith me until 4 o'clock In the morning
to give up all my friends for him. I |
was so tired T asked htm to go to his
room, on another floor of the same hotel.
and I would see him the next day
and we could finish the discussion. .
Miss Maloney was with us all the time. I
, .-raivj, * PU ICI ill*; Bleep una wp II
aIk It over to-morrow.' Billy said.
"There won't be any to-morroV.' T
thought he meant he was going away
somewhere.
"When I woke up my maid told me
that Billy had killed himself. The police
never came to see me about the
suicide. Any report that I was requested
to leave France Is a deliberate
lie. The French people mind their own
business, and that Is more than T can
say about some Americans."
Tidings of the motion picture ban
aused her to exclaim. "T have gone
through hell recently and I don't know
iiMt will happen If I have to go
through any more of this."
She said she did not know Lieut
Monte Ttivas. another Chilean, who was
reported to have killed himself In Paris
after the death of Frraxurlas. She hoped
that never again would any one be so
cruel and unjust as to rail her a siren
or a vamp. She had no Idea, she said,
why the men gathered around her, for
she waa a serious minded person.
"In fact," she said, "T takr life entirely
too seriously. If I had only been
more of a butterfly lots of things would
never have happened. But T must have
people around me, companionship, and I
haven't a thing against men generally
\merlcan men are the finest In the
world, hut there sre restrictions here,
end so I ant going hack to France after
.1 while."
"Are you engaged to Jack Dempsey?"
"Ileavena! What next? But he'a a
peach with a white soul."
List night Miss Joyce attended, so
one of her retinue said, "a social party,"
and then went to her apartment at 433
Park avenue She will go to Norfolk.

VOTE DEVICE SPYING
Detective Tells Hirshfield How
He Gained Confidence of
Machine Maker's Son.
Poolrooms and African golf were Injected
yesterday Into the voting machine
inquiry being conducted by David Hirshfield.
Commissioner of Accounts.
Joseph F. Kennedy, the private detective
who visited Jamestown to gather I
gossip about the Automatic Registering
Machine Corporation, maker of the
standard machine selected by the Secretary
of State to be used in this city
next autumn, was permitted to tell what
he heard while playing pool and dice
in a group with the son or the president j
ot the company.
i Charles E. Heydt. Republican member |
of the Board of Elections, added a de- j
velopment by issuing a statement saying
that Commissioner Hirshfield had refused
his request that he be examined
at once.
"I am in a po.ition to give the Commissioner
valuable information upon this
subject and the reasons why Tammany
Hall desires to keep voting machines
out of New York city," said Mr. Heydt.
"He does not want the truth regarding
this situation, but using Ills methods,
already well known to the public, prefers
to adduce such testimony, which
through misconstruction leads only lo
the drawing of hasty Inference? against
all public officials concerned with this
matter from the Governor down.
"Regardless of what he does, voting
machines are coming and the paper
I ballot, with all the frauds committed
during its use by Tamtrany I-Iall in
New York city, is going. The courts
will soor. decide whether tnc law of 1922
is constitutional or not."
Kennedy, the detective testified he
had worn workmen's clothes with the
idea of getting information from em
ployees of the Jamestown plant. He had
been told Mr. Lauaterer expressed himself
as sure he would yet the New York
city contract as soon as lie heard the
bill had been signed by Gov. Miller.
One night he was In a poolroom at
the Samuels Hotel wltr. young Mr.
Lauaterer, Kennedy said.
"Do you mean where they bet on
horses?" the Commissioner asked.
"Just tables and pUyed pool."
Later they went up stairs to "shoot" :
dice.
"What do you mean by '^hooting' j
dice ?"
I "Well, it is a game which is played i
with two dice having numbers on them
i.nd usually those mak'.ng set eh or
eleven win," it was explained for the
record.
"Do you mean the gtme which is
usually known as African golf?"
"Yes."

New Citt, May 12.?The Grand Jury i
of Rockland county In a report to Su- I
prcme Court Justice Tompkins to-day j
refused to indict in the case of Gillian >
White, the inmate of the Letchworth j
Valley Home for FeeWe Minded Girls, j

jury decided that there had not been
sufficient proof advanced to identify a
skeleton recently found near Letchworth
Village as that of Lillian White.
District Attorney Lexow satd that
he, too, was satisfied that the skull
was not that of Lillian White. Dr.
Arthur C. Munson of Sparkill told him
that the teeth did not tally with the i
dental record of Lillian White, and that
the Jawbone had been twisted during j
a reconstruction process to make the ;
facial contour resemble that of the \
White girl.
Mr. Lexow is investigating a story I
iold by Samuel Conklin, a woodsman, >
who told of a Swedish girl who disappeared
last September Rftcr living for
three days in a hut with a man employed
by a Chicago construction company.
Dr. Munson told Mr. Lexow

himself as the Rev. William R. Thompson:
Mrs. Anna Hartman, 44, wife of
Dr. J. L. Hartman. a chiropodist, who
occupies the first floor of the building
where the seance was held, and Miss
Alice Moriarty, 40. of 35 Hawthorne

Detectives William Haake and Andrew
McLaughlin and Policewoman
Genevieve McLaughlin eased into the
room where the seance was to be held.
They paid $2, thereby becoming mem
bers of the "church," and got by the
guard at the door without difficulty.
The room was well lighted. Thompson,
who was directing the party, handed
out slipB bearing the song "We Shall
Meet on That Beautiful 8hore." All
sr.ng, the detectives joining in lustily.
Then all the lights, except one small
1 ght behind a dark curtain at one
cr.d of the room, went out. In a moment
a filmy looking apparition was seen on
the opposite side of the curtain, between
the curtain and the light.
"Ah," exclaimed Thompson, rubbing
his hands. "We have with us the
spirit of Little Eva. Do not go close
to the curtain. A touch would kill the
spirit of Little Eva."
There was silence for a moment. Then
the spirit mumbled something and
added:
"Has any person here a deceased relative
or friend?"
"Little Eva" aa "Aunt Jemima.**
Whereupon Policewoman McLaughlin
asked:
"Is that you. Aunt Jemima?"
"Yea." replied a voice. "Are you alone
or have you got your husband, Bob,
with you?"
The policewoman turned to Detective
Andrew McLaughlin, who is no relative
of hers, and said:
"Here's Bob. Step up. Bob."
.McLaughlin appeared nervous and
afraid, so the policewoman took him by
the arm and helped him a few steps
toward the curtain. Then the spirit of
"Little Eva" went on;
"You are going to be v.ary successful
in your next undertaking and anything
you do now will bring you a good reward.
You look well, Bob."
Pounces on Spirit.
The policewoman then appealed to
Thompson for permission to have "Bob"
move a little closer to the spirit. Thomp-n.,

however, turned it over to the policewoman
and to DetJctlve Huakc
whUe he arrested Thompson. Miss
Moriarty and Miss Hartman and advised
the fourteen of the "congregation"
to leave, as the show was over.
When the "spirit" of "Little Tvva"
was untangled from the curtain it
proved to be Mrs. Thompson. She was
dressed in white, with a white veil
over licr facr. and was barefoot. The
police also confiscated a small piano
that could be played by electricity.
Hartman, the chiropodist, was on the
first floor when he heard that his wife
was mixed up with the affair. He appeared
genuinely disappointed. He said
the Thompsons had lived there about

they were the "real thing."

PSYCHIC SAYS SPIRITS
TELL BEST OF FUTURF
Carrington Gives His Ideas on
the Sout.
Spirit iriMSiHH must ho depended on
to prove the existence of an after life,
said Hereward Carrington, head of the
American Psychical Institute and
laboratory, last night In a lecture on
"the scientific demonstration of a future
life" at the rooms of the Institute, 40
West Fifty-seventh street. Mr. Carrington
asserted, however, that the
spirits must he made to Identify themselves
most fully to authenticate their
messages, lie went on:
"Experiments seem to show that something
leaves the body after death. A
clmulllkr misty material leaves and
eventually erects Itself Into a replica ?
Into an etherlc double, [toes this something
possess personality and consciousness?
The only proof we have are the
very despised spiritual facts. If the
soul exists after "death the only way to
prove It is through communications."
Mr. Carrington said messages from
the spirit world often are transmitted
through four or Ave mediums and are
Intelligible only when plee.cd together.
He held that this system of cross communication
was devised by the spirits to
eliminate the need of telepathy.

CONNERS ARRIVES/ !
WITH HEARST BOOM
Announces Publisher's Candi-j:
daey for Governor Soon, but '
Fails to Alarm Tammany.
i
HYLAN OFT OF THE IHCE \
Mayor Says He Will Stay j i
Where He Is as Hearst
Returns to City.
;
William F. conners or Kurraio, wno
arrived in this city yesterday, said that ,
William R. Hearst is ready to come out <
as a candidate for Governor and that
announcement to that effect may be
made soon. This statement followed an
all day conference between tne two on I
Mr. Hearst's return from California to
look over the political situation In this
State.
Mayor Hylan last night definitely de- I i
clared himself out of the race for Gov- |
ernor, saying it was his intention to remain
In City Hall. Conners made known '
that part of the Hearst program is for 1
delegations from up State to come to i
New York to "demand" thaS-the publisher
run. He said he had met Charles
H. .Murphy. Tammany leader, but would
not say whether they had talked about
Hearst's candidacy. Mr. Conners said :
"There is nothing to it up State but
Hearst. He will be the candidate. There
is no doubt about it. We have enlisted
between sixty and seventy leaders,
many of them well known, and we have
a strong organization, which Is getting
stronger through the State every day.
Erie county is for Hearst and Monroe
and Onondaga and the other big counties
are for him."
"Has Mr. Hearst indicated he Is willing
to run?"
"Willing to run? He has got to run,"
was the answer.
Conners Tries Comeback.
Mr. Conners has not been active in
politics in recent years and his regulars
in Erie county say he is trying to come
back by supporting Mr. Hearst. The
New York publisher stopped off in Buffalo
on his way East after giving out j
an interview in Chicago praising Conners
and saying that he could not discuss
the situation. He referred to Connors
as one of the most loyal friends in
the world.
Hearst spoke of Mayor Hylan as his j
first choice for Governor, saying that j
with a little coaxing the Mayor might :
be persuaded to run. It was in answer
to that statement that the Mayor said : j
"I appreciate the very complimentary j
remarks made by Mr. Hearst, but I am ,
? - ?? r* .. I
not a canuiuaie iwr cruvcmui v?i ?xh.t .
other office. The people of this city
employed me to work for them for the I
next four years, to continue and complete
some of the great public Improve- I
ments that had been inaugurated dur- j
ins my first term In office. I hope that !
both the Democratic and Republican r
parties will nominate candidates who
will not be amenable to corporation In- j
fluence. The railroads and the special ;
privilege seeking class have ruled too :
long at Albany.'1
Murphy's "Mind Open."
Charles F. Murphy was at Tammany i
Hall during th? afternoon and learned
that Mr. Hearst had come back to see
what "the situation demanded," and j
that Conners was here with the Hearst !
boom. He smiled and his comment was: j
"I am not prepared to say anything
about candidates yet and it Is too early j
to talk politics: my mind Is open."
The Tammany men gathered at the j
Wigwam did not show any signs of
alarm nor did they appear to take the j
Hearst movement very seriously. They j
aid they hoped Mr. Hearst would run ;
for Governor and the way they said It
sounded like a threat rather than a j
wish. They doubted whether he would {
"risk" it. Some of the leaders believe |
he still wants to go to the United States I
Senate, with his eye on the 1U24 Ureal- <
(Initial nomination, but think he wll not i
run a chance of being a candidate unless
convinced he can win.
What the leaders do fear is that
Hearst may get together a strong enough
organization by liberal use of money j
up State to have a club over Tammany j
snd force nominations for Governor and I
Senator, even If he does not run him- j

be used first against Alfred B. Smith, j
chief enemy of the publisher. Those 1
who question the seriousness of his In- j
tentlon of being: a candidate believe that
if he is out of it he will try to bring }
about the nomination of etiher Mayor
George R. L,unn of Schenectady or
Martin H. Glynn of Albany.
