WASHINGTON, April 15---Clarence Moore of 1,748 Massachusetts Avenue, a passenger on the Titanic, is one of the best-known sportsmen in America. He is Master of Hounds of the Chevy Chase Hunt, and on his visit to England from which he is returning he is said to have purchased twenty-five brace of hounds from the best packs in the north of England. His present wife is Miss Mabelle Swift, daughter of the late E. C. Swift of Chicago. She said to-day that her husband's trip abroad had been for pleasure.

Mr. Moore is a member of the New York Yacht Club and the Travelers' Club of Paris, besides the Metropolitan, the Chevy Chase, and the Alibi Clubs of Washington. Socially he is one of the best-known men in Washington.

He was born in Clarksburg, West Va., in 1865, and when he finished his education in Dufferin College in Ontario he interested himself in the development of mineral wealth of that State as did the late Senator Stephen B. Elkins and Henry Gassaway Davis. Since 1890 Mr. Moore has lived in Washington, having business connections with the banking and brokerage firm of Hibbs & Co.

Mr. Moore's first wife was Alice McLaughlin, daughter of Franklin McLaughlin of Philadelphia. She died in 1897, leaving two children, Frances Sarah Preston and Samuel Preston Moore. He married Miss Mabelle Swift on June 20, 1900. By his second marriage he has two children, Jasper and Clarence, Jr.
