Mrs. William Somervlllo King, who was
ono of tho chorus girls In "The Kissing

Miss Alice I'. Searles, wants to know.
She hns been wnntlng to know sluco
Christmas, 1912, when after the lieutenant
had been away for several days from
their New York apartment, she got a tele
gram summoning her to meet him nt tho
Hotel Majestic In this city.
At tho Majestic, according to her story,
slio was met by nnother telegram. It was
signed by II. A. drier, whom sho does not
know, and read:
"Somervlllo has disappeared. Fear tho
worst. You had better return."
This, still according to Mrs. King, was
a, "stunning blow," and she didn't know
what to mako of It. From that tlmo until
February 9, 1913, she says she got a tele
gram every day, assuring her she would
"see Wllllo soon." They wero signed by
soma one she did not know.
Tho final message asst'red Mrs. King
that her husband had left some liner nt
Nantucket and was co'mlng up the coast
In a motorboat.
"I presume," she said, "they want mo
to believe ho has been drowned."
Mrs. King is now living with her

Three of the largest "chain" stores in
the city announced that, although they
are selling at little or no profit, their

were called upon to state why prices had
been boosted and also to tell just what

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. "Think of
America first," was the purport of the
advice given by President Wilton to the
ltev. Dr. Frederick Benle, of flf Leuls,
who called nt tho White House as the
representative of n aorman-Amerlean or
ganisation seeking the enactment ot legis
lation establishing an embargo on arms
nnd munitions of war.
The President indicated to Doctor Bents
that the activities of his own and similar
organizations of Americana of foreign
birth or parentage along tilts' and similar
lines were n, source of embarrassment
to tho Administration. Ho was kindly
in hla criticism, but the clergyman was
made to understand that enough had oc
curred already In the form of mass-nleet-ings
ot sympathizers with one element
or another of America's foreign-born pop
ulation to give tho President and his ad
visers serious concern,
Tho President put his remarks to Doe
tor Bento on the highest ground -of pa
triotism nnd urged upon him the neces
sity Of private Individuals and organiza
tions alike observing a policy ot non
interference with tho conduct of the
American Government In Its dlplomatlo
Tho specific measure which Doctor
Bente Is seeking to havo passed, and
regarding which he appeared beforo the
Senate Committee on Foreign Itelatlons
yesterday, provides for an embargo on
the shipment of arms and war munitions
of every sort, and with Great Britain and
France holding the mastery of the seas
would tend to operate against the Allies
to the great benefit of the two Teutonlo
Empires. High officials of tho Stnto De
partment have expressed tho opinion that
as such a measure was not enacted at tho
outbreak of tho war, Its enactment at
this tlmo would be n non-neutral dct,
