THE WASHINGTON TIMES: MONDAY: JULY 26, 1015.
ii 1 ii I VE A CASSIE CHADWICK Papers Seized at Bath Beach Reveal "Mrs. Flagler's" Operations (n Capital. New York dispatches today assert that Investigation of the affalrn of Mrs. John Johnson, formerly of this city, who Is under arrest In New York, accused of obtaining: money on , tho pretense that she Is the widow of Henry M. Flagler, have revealed that the elderly woman apparently owes large sums of monny and had launched upon a caieer to rival that or Cassle ChnciwicK. i The nuthoiltlcs have seized letters and documents belonging: to llva Jchnson at the Bonsonhurst Hotel, .Bath Beach. In these papers were ' found letters negotiating: for the pur chase of a $57,000 residence. C( side them lay pathetic appeals from persons from whom the accused woman seemingly had borrowed money, and "duns' from the trades Vnen with whom she had contracted large bills while representing herself to bo tho widow and one of the heirs of the Standard Oil and railroad mag nate. Checks Drawn Here. Among the documents also were found eleven checks drawn upon tho Commercial National Bank of this city. One of these, dated October 23, 1914, and signed "Zora Emma Flag ler," waB for $5,000. Officials of the Commercial Bank admit that "Airs. Flugler," during her residence In Washington opened an uccoimt., but say that her only de posit was the one made when tho ac count was opened, and was of small proportions. About two-and-a-half years ago Mrs. Johnson came to AVashlngton and rented from Terrell & Little, real cstato brokers, through Samuel E. Stonebraker. one of their agents, the residence 4t 1325 M street northwest, formerly the Russian embassy. The lease was signed by the tenant as "Mrs. John Johnson, thougn Mrs, I Johnson then represented herself to I nave oeen married at one nine iu aiv. Flagler and claimed to be awaiting a large fortune from his estate. Behind In Her Rent. Mr. Stonebraker today said that dur ing her occupancy Mrs. JohnBOn was continually behind In her rent and that on numerous occasions he had to resort to the courts to obtain It. In each Instance, however, tho suit was docketed, Mrs. Johnson, according to Mr. Stonebraker. would have it dis missed through the payment of the claim. After several such experiences Mr. Stonebraker says he accepted the ex cuses, and put some credenco In the claims made to the Flagler fortune. Eventually, however, when the rent bill had reached large proportions Mr. Stonebraker took action to dispossess his tenant and Mrs. Johnson left the city. Later she made further efforts to buj' the property, and it was while in Washington to conduct negotiations as her secretary for the purchase of the property that F. J. Mahoney, on whose complaint Mrs. Johnson was arrested, became enlightened as to the business methods of his employer. Husband Lives Here. John Johnson, the husband of the al leged Mrs. Flagler. Is now residing at 1714 Fourteenth street northwest. During the occupancy of the M street residence Mr. Johnson lived there, but when his life left the city he -was forced to ceek a livelihood, and accepted such work as came to hand. Frederick C. Bryan, attorney for tho Key West Railroad, and the Flagler es tate, la endeavoring to Induce Mr. John son to go to New York and tell what he knows of his wife's relations with Flag ler. Mr. Johnson la loath to discuss tho case, but has always been firm In Uie belief that he married the widow of Flagler. lU-ports from New York allege Mrs. Johnson has renounced Johnson, con tending that ho was never married to her. but did marry her daughter, ac cording to reports here. German Cotton Supply Little Affected During War Months by Allies Astonishing Figures Prove Central Powers Came Nearer Normal Imports Than Did Russia or France Southern Interests Little Injured by Present Control of Seas. By JUDSON C. WELLIVER. From the beginning of the European war down to the end of May ten months Germany and Austria came nearer to getting their normal supply of cotton from the United States than did France. Likewise, Germany and Austria came nearer to getting a nor mal supply of American cotton than did Russia. These may seem to be astonishing statements, but they arc based on the statistics of the Department of Commerce, as prepared at the request of a Southern Congressman who was bent on showing the truth about the effects of British interference with. the cotton rade. This Congressman is Thetus W. Sims of Tenncsee. He is preparing to issue an analysis of the facts about the cotton trade, in order to counteract the charges which have been put forth by some Southern public men that the allies have been responsible for the injury to the cotton interest. ASTONISHING FIGURES. men who are trying to stir up trouble with the allies because of their treat ment of cotton are making a great msl take. Ho believes that from first to last, tho allied countries have trc.Uod American Interests exceedingly well, and that If. at the beginning of the war, tho present situation could have been foreseen c orybody In the United Slates concerned iibout cotton would have been rcadv to express his complete satisfaction. Contrasting the business of the whole war period with the outlook during the period t)f prostration Inst autumn, he proposes to go home and proach the doctrine that the United States Is trot ting off better than It could posslb'y have hoped a year ago. If the war could have been foreseen; that It Is safer with sea control Just wheic It Is now than with sea control anywhere else; and that the grentest Injury that could come to American lotton Interests would befall them through adopting the adIco of people who want to start trou ble with tho countries that dominate the sens, and perhaps move them to adopt jet more utrlngont measures. GOVERNORlTfEARS IS L C. WESTCOTT QUITS HIGH SCHOO L Resigns as Principal of Western After Twenty-five Years, Giving Ill-Health as Reason. Miss Edith C. "Westcott, within a few months of rounding out a quarter of a century as principal of tho Western High School, has resigned, tier resigna tion was received nl the office of Super intendent Thurston Friday, and accept ed tho next day by tho superintendent. The announcement or MIsb Wcstcott's resignation was mado public today, and nt the same time the superintendent nnnnunced that he had wired Dr. Elmer B. Newton, teacher of chemistry In tho Western High 8chool, to come to Wash ington Immediately and assume the duties of principal of tho school until a permanent appointment Is made. Though the school Is not In session someono Is needed, Mr. Thurston explained, on tho ground to direct tho preparations for moving Into the new building next fall. The news of Miss Westcott's resigna tion was n complete surprlnc to many of thoso closely connected wltn tchool affairs. In her letter to tho superin tendent, ho said, tho otily reason she gave for her action was 111 health. Worked Is Increased. Following tho burning of tho Western High School building April 23 n cnr ago the heavy duties of arranging a makeshift plan for continuing tho work of the school fell upon Miss Wcst:ott's shoulders. Her office, last year, was In the Franklin bluldlng, and n. part of the school was there. Other classes wore scattered In other buildings, and this made the task of conducting tho large school of nearly 700 pupils exceedingly difficult. Before she left Washington for her summer home In the Adlron- dacks. It was sold. Miss Westcott showed -the effects of tho strain under which she had been working. Miss Westcott Is now at her summer home, Owlyout. at Merrill. N V. From thorc sho sent her resignation to tho superintendent. Dr. Elmer S. Newton ha been at Mock Island, n. I. Today ho Is r3tcnlng back to Washington to take charge of Western's affairs until a permanent auccetsor shall be named. In school circles today It was believed Mint Dr. Newton will be permanently named ns tho Western principal. Ho Is the oldest mnn tencher at Western In point of service, It wan said, and he frequently has been called upon to as RUtno the prlnclpalshlp In Miss West cott's absence. Mr. Thurston said he had had no time yet to consider names ol possible candidates. He will make the appointment an soon ah possible after conferring with tho Boat of Edu cation. Miss Westcott has been principal of tho Western High School since It was started, twenty-five years ago next fall, In tho old Curtis- grade school building In Georgetown. She Was the only woman principal of a Washington high school. Carriages Necessary In Vera Cruz, Ruling Comptroller of the Treasury Downey today put his orriclal "O. K." on a bill of $471.20 for cnrrlago hire for the ma rine brigade headquarters In Vera Cruz during the American occupation. The Comptroller ruled that this expenditure was not prohibited by the Inhibition ol Congress against the purchase ana hlro of passenger vehicles, as the car riage In Vera Cruz was a military necessity.

ANNAPQLS HAZE F ACE C0URT-1RTIA L Several Midshipmen Reported to Be Threatened With Dis missal From Academy. ANNAPOLIS. July 26.-That a number of midshipmen will be tried by court martial on charges of hazing, after the board of Investigation, appointed by Rear Admiral W. F. Fullam. superin tendent of the Naval Academy, has completed Its work. Is definitely known. In several cases allegations have de veloped which may make dismissal nec essary under the avowed policy of the Naval Academy authorities and Secre tary Daniels. It has been found that nearly all of l the inrrlents of hazing as It existed ten ye.ys ago have been practiced since the opening of the Academy this year. Tho investigation does not go back of that period. It is understood the board will not complete its work for about two weeks. It was in session prior to the sailing of the practice squadron, and more than thirty midshipmen were retained from the squadron to testify Tho work has been thorough, nnd manv Instances of hazing have been brought to light. Oral nbu.se of underclass men. known as "cussing out." the requirement of songs . nnd stories, the answering of nonsensi cal quest onn, and the Imposition of long continued plivslcnl exercises hove ull Icen br.ought out before the board. In one ea-e a fouith class man was requited to do phsltal exorcises nntll he fainted. I'nder the law, pun ishment less than dismissal may be Imposed by the "uipei Intendent of the Acndemy, rntllled by the Secretary of th Nttvj. A tiial by court-martial In required before a. midshipman may be dtomlKird. Prloi to 1006 dismissal was the onlv punishment fnj hazing;. A number of midshipmen were convicted of hazing during the enily part of that year and were dismissed. Rear Admiral James II. Sands', then superintendent, declared the court would remain In tension until stopped by higher au thority If every midshipman was dls- missed. Afwr about a dozr n had bron dis missed further tilals were stopped hv direction of PicMdeiU Roosevlt. During tho course ol these trials 11 le eloped that many midshipmen had peon gullt of t'lvial hazing only, Jn't undo the law 'hey had to be (Miinlsred Poiirp ' then provided that mip(ip cpsps micht bn punished lv a pennlty J'ss than dlpiuiss'il but that a case of hiut'il hazing might be punished by a heutenr ol a year In prison, In addition to dismissal. Kvcn Mr. Sims wns astonished when he got his tabulations from the Depart ment of Commerce. Ho had expected to llnd that the Injury to Germany, by rnnnn nt tho hold-Un Of COttnn " much less than had be:n supposed; but he uld not dream, until he uau .iju.uj the figures, that Germany had actually come off better than either France or Russia. Here are the general conclusions that Mr. Sims reaches: That In the first ten months of the war this country sold abroad 7,!fiG,8H3 bales of cotton, compared to 8,729,012 bales In the corresponding period ot the preceding year. That at the present rate of exports, the sales for the completed tlrst year or tho war will be Just about equal to thoso of the year Immediately preceding the war. That France received, during ten months' of war, 42 por cent less than her normal supply ot cotton rrom the United States. ' . . , . That Germany and Austria, taken to gether, received 39 per cent less than a normal supply of cotton from the United Tha't Russia In Eui-sdo received 49 per cent loss than Its normal supply or cot ton rrom the United States. That Great Britain received 9.1 per cent more than her normal supply. Tho comparisons are all made wltn thf ear Immediately beforo the war, which Is fairly representative for all the countries. Series of Calculations. Mr. Sims' figures arc made up by an Interesting series of calculations. First, he ascertained how much cotton the United States supplied to the dif ferent European countries In the period immediately before the war; then he ascertained how much it furnished to the same countries In the period of tho It' developed that Gcrminy. Austria, and the neutral counties bordering them ana serving as bvcu iiiiuutu which ciitton nas been lcuuiun-, them, . i..aj i nn mnntlia f.r tint jtntn- ! btllum year Just 3.5,i5,ti.3 biles. I ho same countries roceivcu, in mu wsi mi months of the war year, 3,004,772 bales, a loss of only IS per cent. This tabulation is prepaicd on tho theory that the neutral countries bor dering Germany and Austria were en titled to nbout their normal supnlios. and that If they received hundreds of these normals, nh some did. then the ex cess may fairly be assumed to havo fil tered through to Germany. Mr. Sims assumed this, and ho has plenty of au thority for It. Here are his figures: Ualcs received. 1913-14 1914-13 Germany 2.W4.03? 42 651 Denmark 1C0 K.;67 Italy doz,uij j,ui3,o Netherlands M.S22 101.7C0, Norway !.6:5 Bl.fto Sweden 4,M 711,637 Spain 149.1 S3 411,323 Total .K,e93 3,004,772 It will be found that the loss, for this group of countries during tho war period, was only 18 per cent. Through Neutral Countries. There will be little doubt of tho ap proximate accuracy of the assumption that the excess of cotton, after the war's beginning, entered Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden, was destined for Germany and Austria. Concerning Spain, there might be some dispute, for at first glance it would seem probable that a Spanish ex cess was destined for France. The answer to this Is that France didn't need to get cotton through Spain; her own ports were open. On the other hand. It has been claimed that tho Spanish excess was in considerable part manufactured and then shipped, via Italy, Into Austria. In any case tho figures for France could bo omitted without materially changing the results. Tho broad show ing Is made that the neutral neighbors of Germany and Austria almost gae them a normal supply of cotton. Figures for Allies. On the other side must be plnced the allied European countries, Britain, France, and Russia.

It Is found that to the allies, tho Ger manic countries, and the ncutials, all together, wo sold In tho ante-war period a total of 8.0rtS,300 bales, and in the war period corresponding, tho samo coun tries took 7.2C0.073. in other words, tho number of bales was very little under normal.
