THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THURSDAY, APRIL 10: i913.
RELIEF STEAMERS LOST IN FLOOD ZONE Expeditions Down Ohio Thought To Be Safe in Spite of Lack of Messages. The steamers Cherokee and Kentucky, bearing relief to the flood sufferers of Evansville and Shawneetown, 111., have failed to report. Paymaster Nesblt wired to the Navy Department today from Louisville, Ky. : "No direct reports from two expedi tions down river today. Beecher on Cherokee should be in Evansville and Watrous on Kentucky should be in Shawneetown." Navy Department officials, however. are not anxious about the two boats for they are inclined to believe that bad wile conditions have blocked communi cation with the Louisville headquarters. Serious desertions of white and col ored laborers on the broken levees at Wilson and elsewhere in the Memphis district show that hundreds of work men have absolutely refused to continuo their battle against the rising tot rents. Breaking levees have frightened them. The military officials cannot send them back to work, as martial law has not been declared. Hundreds of refugees from Eastern Arkansas are seeking protection in Memphis. Driven out by the floods, which still threaten to be serious in the Memphis district, they are rushing to Memphis ana otner ciues not. yet. ai fected, for protection and relief. Senator J. T. Robinson of Arkansas, acting upon an urgent appeal from Gov ernor Fultrell. of Arkansas, has Hiked the Secretary of War to send aid to that State Immediately. The Luxora levee has broken and there are many desti tute families. The Arkansas governor apparently has not- appointed a representative to whom appeals should be made, although Sec retary Garrison requested such action a week ago. The department, however, will attend to the Arkansas situation through its officers at M-emphls. Estimate of $1,300,000 Submitted for Lands The Rock Creek Park commission has submitted to Congress its formal esti mate of $1,SOO,000 for buying land with which to Improve the park. At the same time, an estimate of $730,000 for the Ar lington Cemetery amphitheater con struction work has been submitted. Congress authorized the commission to proceed with work on the connection be tween Rock Creek and Potomac Parks, but made no appropriation. Preliminary plans have been completed, and now the commission is hoping for an early appropriation so that condemnation proceedings may go forward. Seeking Information On Historic Pistols It. H. North, of Philadelphia, a great- grandson of Col. Simeon N. North, of Middietown, Conn., called today on Sec retary of the Navy Daniels to get some information about the Capt. Isaac Hull pistols exhibited in the Secretary's office. These pistols were constructed by Colonel North in the Revolutionary period. Colonel North was pistol maker for more than fifty years.

INA SERVICE L ASKS MORE FLIERS Even Balkan States Are Ahead of United States in Equip ment and Trained Officers. TELEPHONE STRIKE AVERTED B Operators' Differences With the Company Settled, After an ately Discharged. BOSTON'. April 10. There -will be no strike of telephone operators In Boston. This was definitely decided early today, after representatives of the New Eng land Telephone Company and their op erators had been In conference through out the night. A vote will be taken by the opera tors tomorrow morning, at which they will formally ratify the action of their committee en effecting the agreement with the company. The new arrange ment will go Into effect June 1. Although the threatened strike has apparently been settled, the action of the company in importing strike-breakers from New York, New Jersey, Wash ington, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and even more 'Western points, and Installing them In the most fashionable hotels as might bellt so many heiresses, threatens to croate country-wide labor complications. It is understood that an attempt will be made in Washington to pass a law forbidding such action. The Central Labor Union will also take up the matter with the Inteostate Commerce Commission. It is undestood. Compromise Verdict On Aged Woman's Will A compromise verdict was returned by a jury before Justice Gould in Probate Court today in the suit to break the will of Mrs. Mary E. Jacques, arj aged woman who died in January, 1912, leav ing $20,000 to be divided equally between the House of Mercy and the medical de partment of George AVashlngton Uni versity. It is understood that the two bene ficiaries agreed to surrender about one fouith of the estate to nephews and nieces of Mrs. Jacques. Anthropologists to Meet. The thirty-fourth annual meeting of the Anthropological Society of Wash ington will be held in the New National Museum building next Tuesday after noon at 4:30. The annual reports will be read and officers for the year will be elected. Enlargement of the army signal ser vice aviation corps will be urged upon Secretary of War Garrison at an early date. Col. George P. Scrlven, head of the signal service, and Majcr Gen. Leon ard Wood, Chler of Staff, are planning to make an tarly appointment with the Secretary so tnat they can present the needs of the service, especially the avia tion branch. The United Slates now ranks thirtieth (: point of men and equipment for avia tion work. The officers will arirue to Secretary Garrison that this nation is in need of larger, better equipment both as regards men and machines. Glenn II. Curtlss, expert aviator and aeroplane constructor. In a letter today to Major Russell of the signal service. comments on what he terms the "few and far betweenness" of the army avia tors. For this work he has the highest praise, declaring that they are second to none in the world. Ho says further tl-at if. private aviators showed the zeal and ability of the army men, the ex hibition market would be flooded with experts. The United States has been falling steadily In the matter of aviation stand ing. This applies solely to the number .of machines and men, but It is a condi tion which slgral service officials view with alarm. Secretary Garrison will be urged to provide not only more monev for the signal branch, but likewise more men for flyers. At present, the signal serv ice is borrowing men from the army line, and the system is not found to bo entirely satisfactory. A larger appro priation without provision for more men will be Just as unsatisfactory as the present method. Few Customs Changes Scheduled for Present Infusion of "new blood'" in the cus toms service will be a gradual pro cess. The ax Is not to fall with Im mediate Indiscrimination, according to a statement today from Treasurv officials Sweeping changes in mnnv of the big ports are more or less Imminent, but the changes are to he made grad ually. These changes will be as sig nificant as those at Philadelphia yes terday when Collector Chester W. Hill, Surveyor Perrv M. Lytle. Ap praiser Fred P. Vincent, and Naval Officer Walter T. Merrick, resigned by request. Publication In The Times of thq Philadelphia shakeup has brought lown upen Secretary McAdoo. the in fluence" of hundreds of candidate for places In the service. Though Secretary McAdoo will nrob ablv make an exception In Philadel phia, he will, as a general proposition, stick to his decision to make no cus toms appointments until July. Funds Needed to Rush" ' Work on-Giant Guns Unless the sundry civil appropriation bill, vetoed March t by President Taft. is soon passed, work on the giant bat tery of guns for seacoast defenses of the Panama canal must be suspended Secretary of War Garrison warned Congress in a letter today. If the money is not made available soon. Secretary Garrison stated, 200 Bkilled machinists at the Watertown and Watervilet arsenals must be dis charged May 1. Garrisor said former appropriations are nearly exhausted, The vetoed bill provided 1,0P0 000 for continuing work. Ten 14-lnch disappearing r"n. six teen of twenty 12-inch mortars author ized for the Panama defenses, and twelve 6-inch guns are being built at the two arsenals. J U R V IS DISCHARGED '! I IN BOND WILL CASE Deliberates All Night in Suit of Daughter to Break Her Mother's Testament. After listening to sensational tcstl monv lor about two weeks, the Jury In the trial of the suit of Mis. Samuel II. Bond to break the v.ill of her mother. Mrs. Ann A. Cornish, widow of Major George G. Cornish, who left her entire estate to a grandniece, Dorothy E. G .Miller, avvs discharged today by Justice Gould, In Probate Court. The Jury deliberated all night. Mrs. Bond attacked the sanity of her mother and charged thut undue Influ ence had been exercised by Miss Miller or other persons In Inducing her mother to make the will. She alleged that her mother had not treated her affection ately, and that Mrs. Cornish had beeri In fear that she would be poisoned and had refused toveat certain food because of that fact. In attempting to show that III feeling between mother and daughter was jus tified by the latter action, counsel for Miss Miller Introduced testimony and evidence to show that Mrs. Cornish had objected to Mr. Bond paying at tention to her daughter. The fact that Mrs. Bond "raised cats" and had other pets objectionable to Mrs. Cornish was also brought out In the testimony to show grounds for ill feeling between the two. There was also testimony to the effect that there were frequent quarrels between Major Cornish and his wife. The Jury is understood to have stood eight to four In favor of Mrs. Bond. Turkish Woman Held On Charge of Insanity A well-dressed woman who said she was Mrs. Annie Parsehlan. forty years old, a native of Turkey, called at the office of District Attorney Wilson to day to seek relief through the United States courts from a gang of Arme nians who, she said, had been robbing her of property and money. The woman's conversation aroused the suspicions of the attaches of the Dis trict Attorney's office, and she was de tained pending the arrival of Central Office Detective Fortney, who turned her over to Sanitary Officer Robert Shroufe. A charge of insanity was pre ferred against her. and she was sent to the Washington Asylum Hospital for observation as to her mental condition. Trinidad Consul Dead. P. Emerson Taylor, of Tekamah.
