COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 22.
"We have exhausted every posslblo cluo
and have traced up overy missing woman
that haa been icported to us until we

Chief of Police Reynolds this evening.
"We can do nothing now but await tho
results of the wide publicity which has
been given the description of tho dead
girl. In the hopes that her friends In
sorao portion of tho country may supply
tho necessary Information "to permit of
our going to work."
The finding of an old coat on a portion
of Cutler mountain today gavo rise to tho
rumor that the clothing had been found,
but it was proven that tho garment hnd
been discarded by a miner working in tho
Another rumor that was run down by
the officers was to tho effect that tho

PRINCESS LOUISE RETURNS.
Visits Dresden, hut Is Refused Per
mission to -See Her Child.
DRESDEN. Dec. 22. The former
Crown Princess .Louise arrived here
unexpectedly today. Accompanied by
a lawyer she proceeded to Taschenberg
palace and asked to be permitted to seo
her child. Permission, however, was
peremptorily refused and the Princess
announced her intention of leaving
Dresden this afternoon.
Klnjr Frederick August, who is on a
shooting excursion, has been Informed
of the arrival of his former wife.
The Princess voluntarily left the city
this afternoon for Lelpslc. An Immense
cheering crowd escorted her to the rail
road station. The Princess, who had
written to he King that unless he
granted her official repeated requeots to
see her children, she would attempt to
see them without his permission, ar
rived here unexpectedly last night from
Vienna, with a woman companion. She
went to the Hotel Bellcvue, where ehe
was Immediately recognized. The po
lice were Informed and the Ministry"
sent a telegram to the King at Plttnltz,
who directed that she should of no ac
count bo admitted to the palace, but
that she should not be arrested unless
she became violent. The Princess went
alone- to one of the entrances' of the
palace, on Theater square, at 9 o'clock
In the morning, dresyed in mourning. A
lieutenant of police saluted the Princess
and told her quietly that it would be
impossible for her to enter the palace.
He ottered to walk with her to the Hotel
Bellevue. She said that would not be
necessary, but hc walked by her side
across Theater square.
She returned to her hotel, received no
one. and lunched In her room. In the
meantime many hundreds of persons
collected In the neighborhood of the ho
tel. Dr. Sehme, the attorney of the for
mer Crown Princess, called, and to
gether they drove to the railroad sta
tion and took a train for Lelpslc, de
signing to return to Vienna.
Public sympathy runs strongly In fa
vor of allowing tho Princess to see her
children once a year, as the German law
provides Jn the case of mothers divorced
for the most flagrant offenses.
Returns to Plorence.
BERLIN, Doc. 22. Princess Louise
(Countess Montlgnoso), former wife of
the King of Saxony, spent the evening In
Lelpslc and left tonight for Florence to
rejoin her oungcst daughter. Thero
were popular demonstrations at the sta
tion In Lelpslc and during the drive, of
the Princess to the villa of Advocate
Zehme, which showed the cxlstcnco of
many sympathizers with the Princess In
Lolpsic as well as in Dresden.

PARIS, Dec. 22. Tho Court of Crimi
nal Appeals has reversed the- lower
court's decision condemning Masse and
Moranno to. three yeans' Imprisonment for
perjury in tho Fair will case. The Ap
pellato court sustained tho prisoners

mised without trial in the United States,
their alleged false testimony was not
used in the American courts and there

saw Mr. and Mrs. Fair thrown from their
automobile. Other testimony showed that
thoy were not present, but that thoy so
repreented themselves, hoping to i;et a
trip to America. They vcro sentenced to

SERVING SENATE SUBPOENAS JN UTAH
"We ask the American people to calmly consider all the facts before
passing judgment." Deseret News.
"IMPOSSIBLE TO ADMIT SMOOT TO SENATE"
SO SAYS PHILADELPHIA PRESS.
The revelations of the Smoot inquiry
have made It impossible to admit Smoot
to a seat In the Senate. It 19 not pre
mature to reach this conclusion. How
ever reluctant the Senate might be to
go behind the face of the j;eturns and
to challenge the right of a State to its
chosen representative, there are over
shadowing facts in this case that can
not bo disregarded.
The disclosures have shocked and out
raged the country. In tho face of their
hideous character public sentiment
would never acquiesce in the gross
wrong of making a national legislator
of the lawless apostle of a lawless hier
archy. The Senate cannot fall to ac
cept the public judgment and pronounce
the same determination.
The evidence has made it plain that
the letter and spirit of the agreement
under which Utah was admitted as a
State have been shamelessly violated.

Impulse of Mormon control Is as fla

The hierarchy 1b made paramount to

It is now openly declared that where

It Is idle to talk of the Issue as a
question of religious freedom. The as

the name of religion. There are rites

people In our land held to such a doc

say that they must not be disturbed lest
the principle of religious freedom should

it is plain that Smoot, as a member of
It, cannot be admitted to the Senate.

"The only relation that carries the pos

declaration and adheronco of the Ameri

Monroo doctrine. The way In which tho

result of tho enforcement of these rights
of foreign powera against tho American
Republics coming Into conlllct with this
doctrine which wc assert for our own
safety and preservation.
"Wo do not undertake to eay that tho
Republics of South and Central America

that tho powers of Europe shall not un
