Speculation as to the cause of tho ac

Dessa Gibson Regenerates

Leaves Him.
liy International News Service
WASHINGTON, Dee. 0. Having
brought about the regeneration of . young
Draper Daugherty and set him to walk
ing with firm step along the straight
and narrow path she laid out for him
through the gay frivoltles that brought
(heir gay young. Jives together, Dessa
Gibson, the show girl, has herself side
stepped and brought their house of new
found Independence lo ruins.
Draper Daugherty, son of Harry M.
Daugherty, the millionaire politician of
Columbus, Ohio, is either in striu't retire
ment in this city after an operation or
is onOiis way to visit his mother In Co
lumbus, Ohio. Ills wife is still in Fort
Worth, Tex.
The young couple separated two
months ago and Harry Daugherty again
went to his son's rescue.
Draper had spent a. fortune on Broad
way when he met Dessa Gibson and fell
in love with her. That happened when
ho saw her in "The Millionaire's Son."
in Columbus. He followed her around
the country for several weeks and a
wedding In New York followed. Their
money spent, dark days were ahead when
Daugherty pero hunted them out, told
Dessa that if site could make a man of
his son she had his help to the limit."
Giving her $2000 to begin the tusk, he
packed the couple away to Fort Worth,
where he had secured a 'position for
his son in a branch of Armour & Co
The pair prospered in their exile. .much
lo the . surprise of their Broadway
friends. Draper worked from .five to
five and was glvm one responsible place
after another. All credit he gave to his
wir.
All went swimmingly until the monot
ony of the-' life had Its effect on the
former chorus belle. There Mvns lassi
tude on her part thnt engendered bicker
ings that did 1 not harmonize with the
stlrrine of ambitions the young man had
begun to feel. Also there were officers
of the army post and with them Mrs.
Draper wlilicd away many of her hus
band's drudging hours.
The crash came two months t ago.
Draper ' came cast and Dessa remained
behind.
'"My son did whattnny other man would
do under similar circumstances.' said
the elder Daugherty today.' "Just set
their troubles down to incompatibility
and let it go at that. There's si. lot to
be said for each side. The, exact- cause
of their separation would butler not be
commented upon, but neither Is to blame
wholly,
"I don't know what my son will .do,
I don't even know whether his separa
tion from his wife will be. lasting. That
Js for them to say. I think Dessa Is a
good woman. She did a great deal for
my boy and J wish she could luiv-o done
more. It's unfortunate."

ARBITRATION IS
AGAIN SUGGESTED
Intimation in Official Circles
That President Taft Intends
to Settle Matter Before
. Leaving- Office.
By International News Service.
WASHINGTON. Dee. P. Great
Britain's formal note of pro
test against that section of the
Panama canal act which ex
empts American coastwise ship
ping from payment of tolls for passing
through the Panama canal, a document
written by Sir Edwavd Grey, British
minister for foreign affairs, was pre
senter! tu Secretary Knox tonight by
the British embassador, James Rryue,
who read the note word for word to the
secretary at the lattcr's home. It is an
elaboration of the poInLs of objection In
the note presented to the state depart
ment last July.
In brief these objections arc
That wlille tt was clearly in viola
tion of the Hay-rauccfote treaty cither
lo remit or refund tolls on all Ameri
can shipping using the canal, that same
objection probably would apply lo the
coastwise trade shipping In view of the
probable Impossibility of framing regu
lations that would not result in a pref
erence to American shipping.
Resistance Promised.
In addition to supporting these points
by long arguments. Earl Grey indicates
clearly that strong resistance will he
offered to any attempt to exclude from
the canal British ships owned by Cana
dian railroads or whoso owners may be
guilty of violating tho Sherman anti
trust act. He holds that this section of
ll)c act. cannot apply to British shipping,
but only to United States vessels.
He indicates that underlying the ob
jection to the exemption from toll of
American coastwise ships Is an appre
hension that Jn tho future the principle
might be extended to cover American
sidps In the foreign trade.
Otherwise the note. Ise devoted almost
entirely to an effort to demonstrate that
any such exemption of American ship
ping as is proposed Js in direct conflict
with the terms of the Hay-Pauccfotc
treaty and that President Taft was clear
ly wrong when he look the contrary
view.
Arbitration Proposed.
The British note might be summed up
as a definition ut the differences between
the two governments regarding the con
struction of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty,
winding up with a proposal thut tho is
sues be settled by arbitration, If they
cannot be adjusted by mutual agreement
for which a way remains open.
Secretary Knox listened attentively to
the reading of the note and promised to
take the matter under consideration,
which lie fell would require some time.
It has been strongly Intimated In offi
cial circles that it was the president's
intention to settle this Important ques
tion before closing his administration,
cither by recommending that the senate
agree to submit It to arbitration or
preferably by the more direct means of
an agreement between the two nations.
Earl Gray begins his note with thu
statement that the prcsidunt does not
fully appreciate the British point of view
and has misunderstood the note of July
S. He says it Is not the case that the
British government seeks to prevent the
United States from granting subsidies to
its own shipping passing through the
canal nor does It sock to deprive the
United States of any liberty which Is
open either to themselves or any other
nation to encourage its own shipping or
own commerce by subsidies.
Purpose of United States.
The purpose of the United Stales in
negotiating the Hny-Paunccfote ticaly
was to recover their freedom of action
and obtain the right which they had sur
rendered n the Clayton-Bulwer treaty to

WOMEN DETECTIVES
II WITH POLICE
Employed to Obtain Evidence
Against Violators of the
Liquor Ordinances.
HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL
i
Say They Like Being Sleuths
and Propose to Con
tinue Efforts. '. . !
Two fashionably dressed and charming
young women have been the occasion for
consternation among the proprietors of
the merry cafes in Salt Lake, where wine
flows freely and sometimes flows on even
after the hour of 3 -J midnight when the
cllj ordinance and the state law bid the
wine sellera lo case operations.
The eafo proprietors have just discov
ered that these two young women are de
tectives, members of the Salt Lake police
force. They are Miss Nellie Elder and
Miss J.ueile Walker and their business is
detecting crime. The" arc said to have
been eminently successful.
For tho past two weeks two young
women havo industriously joined the mid
night pleasure seekers and visited with
gay throngs the various cafes of the city.
Frequently, so the young women report
to the chief of police, they have pur
chased liquor after midnight at thosu
cafes and have seen others do so. This
evidence they have prepared and sub
mitted to tlie chief of police and it is not
-unlikely that within a short time com
plaints will be sworn to charging the -proprietors,
managers and waiters with vio
lations of the liquor ordinance.
Include Rooming Houses.
The operations of the young women
have not been confined to the cafes. They
have visited rooming' houses throughout
the city where in several instances they
have obtained evidence of the illicit sale
of liquor and in a few Instances of more
serious infractions of the law.
The young women havu worked under
the orders of Chief of Police B. F. Grant
and under tho direct supervision of De
tective Hugh Ii. Glenn. Already com
plaints have been filed In some Instance
against rooming housekeepers for the
illicit sale Vjf liquor, but tho young wom
en were not used as witnesses because of
the fact that the evidence they had ob
tained was sufficient without their per
sonal .testimony. They did appear, how
ever, as witnesses in the cases against
W. B. Hammond, proprietor of the Tre
mont hotel in Postofliec place, and E. W.
Abbott, cleric at the St. Ccclle hotel on
State street, both accused of attempted
pandering'. On the testimony of the
women detectives, both were bound over
to the district court.
Work in Secret.
The work of tho detectives has been
very secret and while It was known that
there were women detectives on thu Salt
Lake police force, their Identity did not
become known until yesterday.
At tlie Hotel Utah last night the young
women admitted their Identity when ac
costed by a Tribune reporter. They said
they had no objection to being Inter
viewed, but said they did not want their
pictures published, lest the publication of
their photographs defeat their purpose in
detecting crime, since those violating the
law might recognize them from their pic
tures. They Intend to remnln In the city
and continue their work as at present.
Of Striking Appearance.
The young women are of striking ap
pearance. They are fashionably dressed
and are pleasant and affable of manner.
Each possesses a pair of beaming eyes
and a contagious smile. The very last
guess a person would make as to their
occupation would be that they were po
licewomen. Miss Elder Is an experienced detect
ive, whlje Miss Walker admits being
an amateur. Miss Klder was for several
years an operative In the employ of the
Continental Detective Agency of Den
ver. Shu said last night:
Miss Walker and myself came hero
from Denver last fall of our own voli
tion. We had never been in Salt
Uake and we came here primarily on
a sightseeing trip. Having been en
gaged In detective work in Denver I
suggested to Miss Walker that we
might get employment from tlie Salt
Lake police department. Wu called
on Chief of Police B. F. Grant at
police headquarters and asked for
employment. After an lulurviow he
put us to work, assigning us to duty
under tho direction of Detective
Glenn.
Wo began on October "0 and have
Continued ou Pago Three.
