Confirmation was obtaiued trdiy of statements that William Rocke feller, brother of John D., is suffer ing from cancer, but not of the vir ulent type reported. It was learn ed that Mr. Rockefeller was advis ed by his physicians last Fall to go abroad because of a cancer, a growth at the base of the .tongue, which for the last to or three years has been causing more or less trouble. At times it - was necessary for Mr. Rockefeller to lower his voice to an extent tbat it was barely possi ble to understand him, in conversa tion.
