Persistent reports of "sniping" by Mexican Fed erals upon the American outposts at Vera Cruz and rumors of Constitutionalist further advances toward Mexico City, served today to stir interest in the Mexican situation. Although the War Department would make public no reports from General Funston regarding "sniping on Amert can forces, it Is known there has been an investigation of continued reports to that effect. There have been many in ferences that Huerta's generals were at tempting to provoke a fight with the American troopers and to force interven tion.

SLOANE 216-228 SUTTER ST., SAN FRANCISCO No direct word has come from Mrs. "Johnnie" Mae, Punbar -TtaTnlltrm, the latest bride of William Keats Hamilton, the alleged bigamist, and Mrs. W. A. Kinser, sister of Mrs. Dunbar-Hamilton, has grave fears for her sister's safety. As In the case of the elopement and flight of "Sir" Harry Westwood Cooper with Arma Mllbrath from Oakland, the fugitive bridegroom ad bigamist man- seed to keep out of sight of the suthorl ties, elude detection and flee across the continent, without permitting his bride to send any messages to her relatives or friends. Mrs. Kinser, who suffered a nervous breakdown when she learned, the Identity of the man who eloped with her. sister and who has been confined to her home since that time, declares that she will aid the police in every way In effecting the capture of Hamilton. She declares that she fears for the safety of her sia ter until Hamilton is safe in the hands of the police. '.'I cannot understand why Mae has not written," said Mrs. Kinser. "If she has been abandoned, she will take refuge with friends. In the Eastern Star, of which she Is a member." Experience? Romance? Plenty of It. That's why Bertha Arlett Hamilton, late of San Diego, is writing a moving picture scenario. It Is the story of her life, since to love is to live. And Bertha there la no use denying It has loved. Briefly summar ized the scenario should read something like this: "A chance meeting on the train from Los Angeles to San Diego. A helping nana to a bundle-encumberea old way, A smile, a word exchanged with the pol ished stranger in the seat beyond, that good-looking young man who also sprang to the aeslstanre of the elderly truveler. A conversation, lead Ins to an invitation to call at the well-anDointed San Diego home. Rapid courtship. Hasty marriage against the paternal advice. Duplicity of the man. Deserted lor another woman. Friendless and alone, penniless in a strange city. The police station: the re porters; the photographers, and the end wnicn is not yet. Up on the top floor of the Hotel James on Washington street yesterday sat Mrs. Bertha Arlett Hamilton, pen in hand, before her a big book half full of closely written pages. She is engaged in writing her story, and "it Is full of things whlrh have never been told. v FREDERICK KEATS HAMILTON The man In the case Is speeding F.nst- ward. with him wife No. 2. known as Mrs, "Johnny" Mae Dunbar Hamilton, whose swift wooing is a matter of record. But mat s another story. "Why did he do It?" That is the ques tion that Mrs. Bertha Arlett Hamilton, the deserted young wife, Is constantly asking herself. "Why did he do It? How could that man do what he has to meT' The "he" whom Bertha has in mind Is ireaerlcK Keats Hamilton. 28 years oio. Hamilton the adventurous, ttie wheedling, the love-maker whose pawns are young ana connmng women. JU8T HAD TO FAINT. It whs on Monday that the deserted bride told her story to the police of Oakland, and then "I Just had to faint," she explained. "It was all down in my heart anq I couldn t cry." However, If Mrs. Bertha Arlett Hamilton wants to return to her Ban Ptego home, alia has tb means to da so... It is up to her. entirely. , Her father has sent her money for the trip. Will she go back to the waiting ones the true friends those who chidea only to be klndT "I don't know," answered Bertha, her glance following the manuscript before her. "I have a good proposition; 1 am going to be well paid for this work. "No," the word was accompanied by a quick glance, "I have never written be-fore, but they are very kind. They even corns here and help me with this this." Again the brown eyes swept the pages. "Act?" Mrs. Hamilton hasn't decided. But In the face of the fact that she Is now supplied with money from home, that willing friends, hearing of her plight, have come to the rescue. Bertha Arlett Hamilton, apparently torn with conflicting emotions, says that she has no one lo whom she can turn. "Ob! if I had only one person to advise me, a single soul to whom I could turn, who would really mean what they say, but I haven't. They (meaning strangers) keep coming to me, telling me to do this or that (there was scorn in the voice and a flash in the eye). They tell me not to swear out a warrant, and some of the papers sav that I believe In him still. It Isn't true. It isn't!" she denied, with a dramatic gesture of the arm bared to -the elbow, and a scornful glance. "Do you think for one minute that I wouldn't like to see him punished? I could send him up for twenty years for whmt he has done to me!" But would she? ALL BESPEAK REVENGE. "t would!" Her reply was straight to the point; her eyes, h-r voice, her bearing spoke revenge. But swiftly came the altered mood. The dimple In the chin deepened, smiles chased away the frowns, the dark eyes grew luminous with retrospection Intimate recollections, spoken softly. "To think how that man "dolled" me, how he waited on me in bed, washed my face (yes, she's fairly good looking, quite pretty, when she smiles), combfd my hair (she has quantities of it, dark, almost black), called me endearing names and then (an angry, subdued sob broke) went straight from my arms to court the other woman! I thought he left me to go to work. Instead. It was for Her." "Why did ha do tt?" that is the Ques tion the deserted wife keeps asking; she wno ior two whole weeKs ' Knew per feet bliss." That question, also Is one which the police are trying to find out, and what other -people want to Know, for Hamli ton's rapid fire love making, his many lug propensities and his ability to charm money from the other fellow are unusual, to tay the least. If he keeps on in his career, "Hlr Harry Westwood Cooper" will have a rival of no mean ability. "Work? Yes. He told me he was an architect," said the girl from Ban Diego. "That he had put up the Y. M. C. A. building at San- Bernardino; that he had built rows of bungalows there: that he had offices In Los Angeles; that be had a brother, too, who was an architect in Berkeley. MEETING WAS ROMANTIC. The meeting of the pair Is a romance of Itself, at least it may seem so to young and unprotected" girls, even though tho romance has a tragic turn, and the iron is In the deserted one's heart. "It was on the train coming from Los Angeles. He Was sitting in front of mo. An old lady got on. She had lots oi nunuies, a cage wltn a parrot In It, ana otner tilings, i got up to nelp her. He did. too. Later, he ODened the win dow. Then he turned around and asked me if it was too cold for me." That was the beginning. For from this chance meeting came the closer intimacy. The short courting at the home in San lle?o, a home where she that was Bertha Arlett had "nothing to do but to sit with my hands folded, If I wanted to. And ne Knew it: why old he bring me here, to leave me alone like this?" Ah, but here the story ends." At least the "alone" part of it, for friends have come to the rescue. Just as Mrs. Hamilton began to tell another phase of her courting and heart-lens abandonment, a step was lyard on the stair and, looking over the old-fashioned well, a big, strong looking, grey-haired man was sighted. "Oh." came the long drawn exclamation. "A friend! Come right up here!" she called, and ran half way down stairs to meet him. "isn't it awful the notoriety and all?" she greeted In a low voire as the big man with tho Klks tooth on his watch erinrm took both her hands in his, with a "Well! Well!" By this time the pair had reached the top floor under the skylight. '"My friends have come!" announced Bertha Arlett Hamilton. "One Is here already, and another is coming tonight. 1 nave nuiiung more to say: . , 1- . . Golfer Is Sorry for bussing" President WASHINGTON, June 24. The story of how rreslflont Wilson, golfing on a local green, sent a ball whizzing nesr another golfers head, and how the other fellow "missed" the President of the United State and then in confusion and chagrin, made profuse apologies, had a sequel today- when- President Wilson and the other golfer exchanged letters, one an abject apology and the other an ac knowledgment, coupled with a firm dec laratlon from the President that he was within hti rights under the rules of the game.
