Washington Times

Clarence Moore, of Washington, whose name is included in the list of first-cabin passengers on the Titanic, left Washington March 16. He was particularly interested in seeing the Liverpool steeplechase races while abroad, and if he remained to see those races he could not have been on the ill-fated vessel.

Mr. Moore was well known for his interest in horses and dogs. He was master of hounds at the Chevy Chase Club at one time.

He was twice married, first to a daughter of the late Frank McLaughlin, former owner of the Philadelphia Times, and later to Miss Mabelle F. Swift, of Chicago. Mrs. Moore's mother, Mrs. Swift, who spent the winter here, sailed for Europe last Saturday.

Mr. Moore was born at Clarksburg, W. Va., March 1, 1865. He was given a thorough education in a private school and afterward attended Dufferin College, in London, Ontario. After graduation he became interested in mining properties in West Virginia.

In 1891 he became a member of the firm of Hibbs & Co., a brokerage company that has been interested in some of the largest transactions in Washington.

He has three children, a son and daughter by his first wife and a son by his second. Miss Frances Moore will make her bebut next winter.
