16 THE SUN, MONDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1919. (fit WIFE OF VERMILYE ADRIATIC ARRIVES PAPERS MAY LEAD, BROKER HARBURGER'S WITH 900 VOYAGERS ABSENCE A MYSTERY SAYS FIANCEE KNEW Sir Horace Plunkett Among TO ARREST OF REDS Wife Does Not Know and I 1 Miss Koonoy leaves Cumber- land Hospital Without Try- ing to Soo Him. MET IN NEW BRUNSWICK Woro Tliysiclan and Privato Sccrotnry at Camp of George1 D. Pratt Dr. William Grey Vermllye's matri- monial mlxup was complicated further yesterday by the atatement of Mrs. William Grey Vermllye of HarrUburtr, Pa., that sh has been wedded to him for twenty-lir- e years. The \eneage-wen- t\ of Dr. Verrnllye to Miss Ruth M. Keeney of Muiuon, Mass., was newa to Mrs. Vermllye, When ha wrs Informed of the latest development In his affairs. Dr. Vermllye, ' who Is In tho Cumberland Street Hos- pital, Brooklyn, had \nothing- - to nay.\ Uea Keeney left the hospital after pass-I- n Saturday nleht under the samo roof with the man he believes Is her elusive fiance, but without seeing .him. She had recovered sufficiently from the shock of Dr. Vermllye's refusal to see her to return to her home In Munson, Mass., It was Bald. She wns accompanied by her father and declined to say what her next step will be. Miss Keenoy Is ap- parently bewildered at the strange de- nouement of her romance. Dnnchter-ln-IinT- T Appenre. The existence of Dr. Vermllye's wife was confirmed by a youn? woman Hvlnr at 1355 Taclflo street, Brooklyn, who said ehe was Mrs. Vermllye's daughter-in-la- This young woman refused to give her name, but said her husband was a son. of Mrs. Vermllye by a former maTrlago. \It Is true that Mrs. Vermllye of Harrlsburg Is the wife of Dr. William Grey Vermllye In Cumberland Street Hospital,\ she said. \Dr. and Mrs. Ver- mllye used to live here. Mrs. Vermllye moved to Pennsylvania when her hus- band entered the servlca of the United Btates ShlDDlns Board. I never have seen Mlsa Keeney, but I have heard nor poken of. I don t want to say anyining further ; we want to hush It up.\ Mrs. Vermllye was located at the home of her Major E. R. Balnes of Ilarrisburg. According to one report re- ceived from that city, she was stunned when she learned that her husband had been mentioned in the newspapers as the \missing bridegroom\ who failed to appear at Miss Keeney's wedding on C .Hstmas Day, as sho had been in al-i- jt constant communication with him. h wan quoted also as saying that SIIss' Keeney knew Dr. Vermllye was mar- ried. A correspondent of Tun Sun inter- viewed Mrs. Vermllye last night, but she declined to make any statement in re- gard to Dr. Vermllye's affairs. It was said that she probably would return to Now York shortly. Major Balnes said his mother-in-la- never had heard of Miss Keeney before reading of her In- tended marriage, and that the family was awaiting developments. Mrs. Ver- mllye refused to talk over the long dis- tance telephone. Aphnila la Intimated. Asphasla has been suggested ss an explanation of Dr. Vermllye's failure to keep his wedding appointment, If he Is actually the same Dr. Vermllye that Miss Keeney was engaged to marry. When Dr. Vermllye was asked If this explana- tion might be accepted, he declined to answer and instructed the hospital at- tendants to refuse any more notes from the newspaper men. Mrs. George D. Pratt of Glen Cove, whose husband Is connected with the Standard Oil Company, said that Dr. Vertnilye and Mis Keeney had Viaen em- ployed at their camp on the Miramlchl River, New Brunswick, Canada, last summer as private physician and secre- tary respectively. \He seemed to be a fine old man and devotedly attached to Miss Keeney,1 Mrs. Pratt said. \I had the Impression that he would have adopted her if he had not had trouble with his wife. I was told Dr. Vermllye and his wife had not lived happily together.\ Word was received from Dr. Ver- mllye's son, Dr. John H. Vermllye, of Atlanta, yesterday that his father's wife was living. She Is the younser ver mllye's stepmother. The only Informa tion he had of his fathers reported en Kagement to Miss Keeney had, been gleaned from the newspapers, he The minor operation for which Dr. Vermllye went to the Cumberland Hos pital last Thursday has not yet been performed, according to Dr. Jacobs, the superintendent. Dr. Jacobs said Dr. Vermllye was ablo to clt up and read, hut would not say when the operation would be performed or what kind of an operation it was. LEGION FINDS SOME GERMAN MUSIC O. K. Opposes Only Hiding Propa- ganda Under \Art.\ The American Legion wants to be ab- solved from every instance of disorder that has taken place in Its campaign against the production of German opera. A statement by tho New York State ex- ecutive committee yesterday said that In one case at least the American Legion had been blamed for a demonstration against German opera, but It had been proved college students were responsible. The committed said members of the legion are as capable of enjoying good music as other folks, and issued this of- ficial atatement of the position taken by tho organization: \We should not oppose, as such, Ger- man opera and Hungarian muslo where the spirit, the language and tho person- nel nre truly American, and where no attempt Is made through advertising or publicity to arouse tho feel- ing that would minimize their defeat or their guilt. \Many of us who would bitterly op- pose hearing German opera, given and managed by Huns whose cplrlt Is still one of defiance, would.

He was chair man of the Dublin conferonct, which ipent four months vainly working for a solution of the Irish question. He said he did not care to discuss the plan of Lloyd George proposing two separate parliaments for Ireland until ho had read It. His comment en Richard Croker'a remark that 80 per cent of the Irish peoplo favored Irlnh freedom was: \They never get rnunn freedom, They are prosperous, but not politically contented.\ Sir Horace is on record as saying that Great Britain ''cannot concede ex treme Sinn Fein claims any more than the claims of the Confederate States could have been conceded It the Union was to bo preserved.\ Other arrivals by the Adriatic were \Gypsy pat\ Smith, as he prefers to be called, son of hero to lecture and marry an American girl i Maud Allan, classlo dancer, who won fame as Salome; Mary Marsh Allen, emotional movie actress; Maggie Teyte, opera star, and Lord Alastalr Levinson- - Gower, SLAYER DETECTED BY 'LISTENING IN Chaso for Murderer of Miss Dnnn Ends When Detoctivo Overhears Phono' Talk. Frank kelley, tbe negro who con- fessed to tho murder of Mlrs Catherine Dunn, maid In the home of Clarenco Sperry Clark, Flatbush, played a shrewd game of Mde and seek with the police from the moment suspicion fell upon him until he was captured. Ho admitted yesterday that he was trying to shadow detectives while they were trying to shadow him. At one time, he said, while Detective Johnson of the Brooklyn po lice was expecting him .at an Atlantic avenue addiess he wns expecting the detective to turn up at another place nnd was waiting to get\ him with a blackjack. Kelley went to four different points In New York In efforts to conceal his. iden ttty while trying to reach his wife In Newark over the telephone. The fourth call proved his undoing, when Detoctivo Sullivan, miking a call from a booth near Kellny's home, happened to get In upon a cross connection and heard Kelley tell his wife to \let them bulls In tio's they can see I ain't there.\ Warranto from the ofllco of Harry E. Lewis, Brooklyn District Attorney, were left with tho Newark police yesterday charging Kelley with murder and accus- ing as an accomplice Emma Robtnson, a negress, of Brooklyn, who also Is under arrest in Newark. It is expected ih-.- y will be arrnlgned y and their ex- tradition will be asked at once. Brooklyn detectives recovered yester- day two more pieces of the $10,000 worth of Jewelry which Kelley Is ac- cused of stealing from tho Clark homo. Those wero a ring and a beaded bag which Kelley had given two negroes In Harlem, whom, the police say, 'Kelley had known In Leavenworth prison. The ring was pawned for $175 and thi money delivered to Kelley. In the Icot taken from the Clark home were three bottles of whiskey. Kelley Raid his deslro was to steal the ftook of whiskey Mr. Clark had and not bother with tt Jwehr, but that the Robln.on girl Insisted that he steal the Jewelry. Kelley shitted jsterday from his attitude of the prjvlous day, when he sought to protect the g;rl, and now lays the blame for his trouble upon her. Kelley declared that after his last term In prison It was his Intention to go straight, but that the Robinson girl tempted him with the profpect of sud- den wealth through the Clark robbery, the police said. Further effort was made yesterday to establish a connection of Kelley with tha murder of Mrs. Emma McDonald, who was found dead In a lot near East Ninety-secon- d street, Brooklyn, October 22, but the police were reticent concern- ing developments. District Attorney Lewis took occasion to praise the work of the Brooklyn de- tectives, stating their \clean up\ in tho Dunn murder was one of the cleverest pieces of work he ever had seen. Among those mentioned by the District Attor- ney were Capt John Coughlln and De- tectives L. Dltman, B. D. Bowd, John Sullivan, William Brosnan and F. John- son.

These papers contain Instructions from Buharln, chief of the Communist Inter- nationale in Moscow, for the waging of a bitter communist campaign here; for mutinous agitation among troops' and sailors; the smashing of all law abiding labor organizations, and fomentation of strikes in all of the vital industries of this country. They order the servants of Lenlne in this country to circulate Biories to the efTect that this Govern- ment Is about to declare new wars, and to keep alive the anticipation of ex- ternal strife In order to prevent unrest from subsiding. Thoy inform the local Bolshevik! that they are to organize the unemployed and foment Insurrections.

Mr. Hodge had no connection whatever with tho build- ing of the structure. The Woolworth Building was designed by and con- structed under the supervision of Cass Gilbert. The firm of Cunvald Aus Com- pany, consulting engineers, of 244 Madi- son avenue, were Mr. Gilbert's consult- ing engineers and ucted as such on all structural matters, and alkof the struc- tural features of botli the foundation and tho superstructure were designed and superintended by that company.

SINN FEINERS HECKLE SPEAKERS IN CHURCH Police Eject Objectors to Anti'Valera Talk. Six detectives and four patrolmen were called to Grace Methodist Episcopal Church, 131 West 104th street, last night to quell a disturbance In the auditorium and galleries made by fifty Sinn Fclners who were heckling the Row Frederick Hart and William Coote, M. P., members of the Irish delegation which recently arrived to combat Valera propaganda. Tho hooting had caused an uproar In the church by the time the officers ar rived In answer to a telephone call from the Rev. Frederick Brown Harris, the pastor. The police made short work of ousting the disturbers, shooing them out of the galleries and Into tho street. In the vestibule some members of the con gregatlon who had decided tho affair was too warm for them, wero trying to make nn exit. They were luckless enough to be seized nnd rushed out the door side by side with the. Sinn Feiners, and were considerably distressed at the procedure. While the disturbers were being put out Jlr. Cooto kept the ros trum and proceeded as best he could with his lecture on the Irish cause. He frequently was Interrupted with cries from outward moving Sinn Feiners of \Long live Valera!\ and \Up with the Irish flag!\ An attempt of the disturbers to hold a mass meeting in the. street near the church was promptly checked, the crowd being dispersed through Columbus and Amsterdam avenues. There were no ar rests. DEPLORES PASTOR'S \BARE KNEE QUEST\ Brother Cleric Defends the Purity of \Wayfarer.\ The Rev. Henry Knight Miller, pastor of Hanson Placo Methodist Episcopal Church, defended the religious spectacle The Wayfarer\ from thj attacks of the Rev. John Roach Straton and the Rev. I. M. Haldeman In his sermon last night. He said \The Wayfarer\ was the most sublime and Inspiring sermon ever preached to the people of America and was most artistic in its dramatic com- position. 'I do not recall that there appear In the pageant any girls 'with lower limbs exposed almost to the knee,\ as has been charged.\ Dr. Miller said. \I fear the reverend brother was so engrossed In the morbid quest for the bare knee that all of the chaste and beautiful religious In- spiration of the hour was missed. One of the pastors charges blasphemy because one member of the cast, Blanche Yurka, repeats some of the Master's words. Docs not this minister .repeat thoBe words? Whoever told him he was any better than Blanche Yurka, whose pure and unsullied life recommended her to play the part? Christ never gave any priesthood monopoly on the use of his words. I cry shame to these apostles of bigotry who have exploited their opin ions at the expense of the purest and most moving picture ever offered our people.\ PASSERBY KILLED AS THIEF IS FIRED UPON Bullet Hole in Door May Solve Mysterious Shooting. George Carr, 20 years old. staggered into his home In 520 West Thirty-nint- h street early yesterday morning bleeding from a bullet wound In his left side, and told his brother, Joseph, that he had been shot as ho passed a building In Thirty-nint- h street, near Tenth uvenuo. He became unconscious soon afterward, and died during the afternon In Dnllevue Hospital. Joseph Carr notified the police, and Detectives Morrison. McAullffe, Cooney, Hogan and Lembert began an Investiga tion. They found sevral persons In the neighborhood who had heard a shnt, and nt length, after several hours' search, i they discovered a bullet hole tn the door leading to the bedroom of William Fry-lin- g, behind his grocery store In CVG West Thirty-nint- h stret. Fryling told the pollco that burglars had tried to enter his store, and that ho had fired through the door at them. This, ha said, occurred about tha tlmo that Carr said he passed the Fryling store. The pollco will try to learn If the bullet which killed Carr Is of the same calibro as Fryllng's revolver, Fry- ling was arrested and will be nrralgned In Jefferson Market court this morning.
