MISS ASQUITH SPEAKS OUT
Says Watson Blamed Mother
and Herself for Not Appre
ciating His Greatness.
Associated Press.
London, Dec. A.—Poet William Wat
son was disappointed because be eould
get neither title nor pension, according
to Mis* Violet Asquith, daughter of the
British premier. To this she attributes
his astounding statements in America
that she and her stepmother figured in
his poem as “the women with the ser
pent’s tongue.” She declared he had
made her father’s life miserable with
hie persistent demands and had failed.
The poet, according to Miss Asquith,
asked for a literary pension ana ex
pected announcement of his knighthood
would be made on the king’s birthday
a year ago. When it did not eome out.
he* became peevish and blamed her
mother and herself for not appreciating
his greatness, she said.
The correspondent requested that
Miss Asquith make a full statement of
her side of the controversy, but she
firmly deelined. ,
John Lane, who published the volume
of Wm. Watson *s poems which has had
a big sale recently, announced last night
that in all subsequent editions, “the
woman with the serpent’s tongue” will
be omitted. On account of the notoriety
of the poem, Watson’s latest book was
in strong demand. So long as the iden
tity of “the woman” remained a mat
ter of guess work, the publisher used
the myaterv for all it was worth in ad
vertising the book, but now that Wat
son has indicated who was meant. Lane
savs he does not care to assume the re
sponsibility.

POEM TO BE LEFT OUT

New York, Dee. B.—Poet Watson said
to a'reporter last night in regard to
withdrawal of his poem without his
authority, that he would not allow it
either in this country or England. He
declared he would contest any such ac
tion of the publisher in the courts.
Mr. Watson will call upon' Joseph H.
