Is It love, jealousy or hate that lies back of the attempt of Ensign Stella Phillips to commit suicide Monday afternoon in a Wall street rooming house? This is the question that Is agitating the minds of the Salvation Army peo ple at their headquarters on South San Pedro street. , •< Some sido with the sweet-faced llttla ensign; others take the part of Frank Clem, whose attentions are alleged to have caused a rift in the friendship of Ensign Phillips and Captain Ethel Claw. • One ofllcer said last night that th") persistent love of Soldier Clem caused all the trouble. Another thought jealousy of Clem's liking for her chum, Captain Ethel, made Miss Phillips despondent. , And still another believed that love changed to hate for her former chum was the motive. that led Stella Phillips to drink carbolic acid In her mother's room. Now Wants to Live Anl while the army quarters are rife with surmise, suspicion and conjecture, the subject of all the talk is lying on her bed of pain at the emergency hos pital, now anxious to get well; "I am sorry now that I tried to take my life," Ensign Phillips said yester day with a queer choking" in her voice. ' "I know that I did wrong but some things were go hard to bear. Since .1 was- brought here, God has talked to me in a. still small voice. He bids me hope and look forward to future days of usefulness in the work that I love. "No, 1 have nothing to say about any man. It is not right that I should tell all my' heart secrets. I thought my chura'was forgetting me and that made me sad. Perhaps there were other rea sons. If there were, they are past now. I am going to get well and enter once more Into God's chosen work." Talks of Jealousy "I'll tell you tho straight of it," said Soldier George when the memorial ser vice was over.' "This man Clem was in love with the ensign and just pestered her with his attentions. She put him off time and time again. She ssaid she just wanted her chum, Captain Ethel Claw. "Why, I remember a meeting last year in Pasadena when Ensign Phil lips said she, was going back to.Ala bama. Clem tore down to the Arcade station and begged her to stay out here. , How it ended I don't know. "Then Captnin Claw played for the soldier and .that caused the ruction between the girls. I am experienced In such things and know what I am talk ing about. She was ] jealous of her chum." The doorkeeper gave ■ a cackling laugh and turned to speak with a com rade. ' ' "I doult think Captain George is qulta right," said an officer, with a strong face and smiling blue eyes. Clem Makes statement "We all know Comrade Clem pretty well here and like him very much. He might have cared for Ensign Phillips at one. time, but that was long ago." "When the two girls came down here on a furlough " said another Sal vationist, ■ "we noticed that Clem helped thP:.i pay their hills. That was only the part of a Christian brother." Comrade Clem plays a cornet in the hand. After the service he carefully wiped his instrument and replaced it in a case. : "Why should I talk about my pri vate, affairs?" he demanded -sharply of his questioner. "I have nothing to Buy.- I was not treated fairly and just jmt a Ptop to certain thing*. "I don't know why Miss Phillips tried to kill herself. I know 1 was not the cause of It. •'I have asked advice of my friends In the army. They tell me to keep still and say nothing. They believe In me and 'my life In this city speaks for lt- Belf. "I have nothing to conceal. I feel only pity for the girl in tho hospital.. More. l will pot say."
