CARMEL, N Y., Sept. 29 (By the Associated Press) James

The reierce . decision was a com

referee, also confirmed her charges

UBOUT HELEN AND CLARA.
In regard to Mrs Stlllnian's charges
that her banker husband had also,
misconducted h'.msclf with two otlo r
women, identified only as Hsh n
an "Clara." Referee Gleason decided
that the evidence was not sufficient to
prove the allegation of adultery
Two of the banker's attorneys, Col-

banker to be the faihcr of lime Guy

In believing Mrs Stillman guilty of

The referee held that Mr Stillman
had failed to o ercomie the presump

the r.trongest known to the law and
which cannot be overthrown except

HIS GUILT l'H) I N.

Mrs. Stillman the referee held, not

debec tending to show that agents
of Mr. fXlllman offered Indu.emenva

In conclusion It was re. ommended
that lhe plaintiffs complaint should

Of time estimated to be required for.
General HarliiRrton's Journey and ln-

The allied hlRh commissioners have j
decided to dispatch a commission com

The Turks have completed their oc

' climax Is swiftly approaching.

note to Smyrna, telling Mustapha

sire to avoid a conflict but that
