Serious Problem
for Naval Experts
BOSTON. July 18.?The report ot
the board of Inquiry which Is Investigating
the disaster on board the battleship
Georgia will probably be forwarded
"to Washington to-day. Prom
unofficial but trustworthy sources it
Is learned that several members of the
board expressed the opinion that the
accident was due not to a-spark but
to spontaneous combustion ot gasses
generated by the rapid firing. The
crew were straining every effort to
break a record for quick work and
closed the Interior, of the steel box
which-was filled with highly lnflaraa
ble vapors generated by the dree barge
of tie big guna. No evidence has been
found In support of the spark theory.
It this proves the. true cause of. the
disaster, naval experts will face aj
problem more serious than heretofore
developed by explosions on warships.

LADY OF LYONS i
ROMANCESPOILEDI
TELEPHONE GIRL WHO MARRIED 1
A SUPPOSED MILLIONAIRE IN '
DIVORCE COURT.
- I
WASHINGTON, Jply 18.?A beautl- 1
(ul romance that stirred many young
hearts In Wtfshington a few months 1
ago came to an end when William Ir- '
Tin Brooke,'scion of an'old Maryland '
family, but now living In Alexandria '
sued his wife; Mae Brooke, for dl- 1
vorce, charging Infidelity.
Last September Miss Mae Parriqh, !
one of the- prettiest girls fn Washing- (
ton; amaxed all her young friends by ,
eloping with William Irwin Brooke. a
Mr. Brooke had long been attentive to \
her, and as he was reputed' to own j
many millions'ahe had been much en- (
vied. The honeymoon lasted 11 days,
and then they separated. It was com- f
raonly understood when the young
couple returned to Washington after j
their "elopement and: went to a mod.
est boarding house, where they lived .
^ ?- ??*I-?L' ?LIM unaneiimltiw
ur one iwuv uMy wiic
menage was only temporary until Mr.
Brooke's ancestral mansion had been
properly refitted for the beautiful
young bride.
But the bride did not wait for the
ancestral mansion and soon sued her
husband for a divorce, alleging crtiel- I
ty. The romance seemed all shattered |
and the fair young bride expressed
herself freely about her husband's
millions. The court awarded her *10
a week alimony pending the suit from
which many of the bride's friends began
to form their own opinion about 1
the bridegroom's reputed millions.
Yesterday another and the final chapter
was added .to the romance,
when Mr. Brooke sued for an absolute
divorce. Mrs. Brooke is now llv- ]
Ing at Palls Church. Mrs. Brooke had i
been the telephone operator at one of t
the leading hotels, and it was there i
that her husband first met her. 1
