I Hess Divorce pase, I I Petitioner's Mysterious Disappearance, Up to last night nob the slightest clue had been 1 obtained as to the whereabouts of Mr Julius Hess, the wealthy German merchant who some eight months ago filed a petition for divorco against his wife in the High Court of Justice, and who has not been heard of since July. Mr Hess was last seen with his luggage at a Paris railway terminus on the 10th of that month, presumably on his return journey to London, which he had only left two days previously. So far all efforts made By the Scotland Yard officials and the Continental police have failed to throw any light on the disappearance. Whether the fears thab have been suggested in court are or are not well founded, the tact remains that a valuable life insurance policy has been allowed to lapse and that an extensive City business has been affected by the petitioner's abssnce. [ A Detective Interviewed. The head of a well-known private detective agency has been interviewed by a correspondent. He had, he said, acting upon the instructions of the solicitor to the petitioning husband, worked up the evidence to be submitted in the Divorce Court when the case came on for hbaring. The whole of the circumstances from beginning to end connected with Mr Hess's disappearance was most singular. The divorce suit itself, should it ever be tried before a judgeandjury.promised to be a most sensational one. While there were reasons that would account for Mr Hess's disappearance from London, he could not bring his mind to think that the missing man had been the victim of foul play. While it was impossible to say exactly what had happened, he felt tolerably certaiu that Mr Hess was still alive. As to his whereabouts that was another matter. It was difficult to believe that he bad gone to Madagascar, as had been suggested. It was true that Mr Hess bad frieuds there, but it should be remembered also that the number of Europeans— I and especially Germans—was limited in these latitudes, and his presence in the island could have been ascertained from the French officials without difficulty or delay. A cable to Tamatave would have settled that point, probably within 24 hours. A fact not to be overlooked was thab Mr Hess had numerous friends in Paris, Germany, and America, in which latter p:ace he bad spent several years. To conceal the locality where he had taken up his abode would thus be a matter of comparative ease. He could not, however, posiibly understand why he did not come forward, unless, indeed, as I would be surmised by some, he was suffering enforced captivity. Everything was indeed enveloped in mystery.
