INTERVIEW IS REPUDIATED Mrs. Tyler Morse Says She Knows of Xo Engagement Between Mine, Gould and dc Sngan. 'New York, April 1. Evidence was forthcoming to-night that efforts were being made to check a family breach occasioned by Mine. Anna Gould's re ported determination to accept the hand of the Prince Hello do Sagan. To-night Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Oould 1 visited Mme. Gould in her apartments at the Hotel St. Regis, where she etlll Is In bed, suffering from bronchitis. 1 Other relatives, including Helen M. Gould and Georgo J. Gould, evinced their concern by repeated telephone in quiries, which were promptly an swered. Mrs. Tyler Morso at whoso apart ments the prince and Mme. Gould met in New York, caused tho lesuanon in the evening of a formal statement denying 'rn Interview attributed to her to-day. To this statement Mine. Gould gave her sanction. It was ls uedthrough Edwin A. Jones, attorney, jrtTrollows: "Mrs. Morse has read an Interview attributed to her that thero was a dis agreement in tho Gould family con cerning tho Prince do Pagan, and that Mme. Gould enmo to tho hotel St. Regis because thereof. "Mrs. Morse had no such Interview and made no such statement. From lier own information such printed statements are wholly false. Mm. Gould was taken ill while calling on Mrs. Motse, and has since been finable to leave her room. Mrs. Morse knows of no existing engaptement. between Mme. Gould and the Trlnce do Pagan, end would not be tho person to an nounce it if it were true. i "Mr. Jones further stated that he was authorized by Mme, Gould to say that she has had no disagreement with her family, and concurs in the statement made In behalf of Mrs. Morse." The prince talked frankly of his af fairs at tho Waldorf-Astoria, nt night. "I suppose I am to be driven out of this city by all IIiIh publicity rela tlve to my affairs," said he. "For that reason I may alter my plan of leaving on the Provence on April 9 and depart next Tuesday on the Kais er Wllhelm der Oronse." "Is It planned, then, that Mme. 1 Gould will return on tho Provence on April 9?" was asked. "That1 is not for me to say," was the reply. "One thing Is certain, how ever Mme. Gould and I soon will be back In France, where we can be free, I there can meet her as the friend I always have, sought to be. Our mo tives will not be misunderstood. I notice that Mrs. Morse has been quot ed as saying that the engagement of ' Mme. Gould and myself will be an Tinnnced upon our return to Trance. That Is for time to tell."
