Secretary of State John Shermau is being

to prove this. SUitc, Secretary and couli

Department like water through a sieve.
Or course, Sherman was blamed for It.
"Then the Sherman interviews. In the

has lieen report ed.inissing, and his parents
are certain tbat he has been alwlucted.
Victor Is a very derirable member of a
vaudtvllle comiaiiy. He is a beautiful
child, hnving finely cut features, long
gol-lcu hair, which falls below ids shoulder.
When dressed in hls stage costume of Mu
tights- nnd sailor Tilouse, he presents .a
pretty picture, which many persons who
have visJted Uie show In the city will re
call. With Ids laments, who are performers
in the troupe, the boy has been traveling
around the country for some yenrs. He
has mastered the rt of tightrope walking
ard Is' aLo an accomplished trick cycle
rider. The Merlin people considered him
one of the attractions or the .show, and
bemoan the disappearance of the boy.
A "Westctii miiu, who las been varlously
known iu Uie Indian troupes with which
ho traveled as "Arizona Jack" nnd
"Long-Haired Jack,"' has been emplojed
as a canvas n.rau by the Merlin Con pany

secret interviews with Victor and when
ever another member of the eonmany
would approach the couple Arizona Jack
would walk away, only to ictuin when the

Victor Is a timid little fellow, and has
by his gentle manners endeared himself
to all the employes and guests of the hotel
He had tnadeaoonfldantaoroneof the wait

day that he was afraid to go to thojilace
of performance by himself, as "Arizona

The boy told his parents that he did not
want to be left behind when the performers
lefr the hotel in a body to go to the circus
tent. When pressed for a reason he lapsed
Into sllcnC" and was chided for his timidity.
The cause for the boy's fear did not
suggest itself to Mr. and Mrs. Livingxtonc
at the time, but now the probable explana
tion or trepidation is seen. Victor went to
Anacoslia yesterday morning, where the
Merlin company will perform for the next
week. He was accompanied by his uncle.
The boy was missed about 11 o'clock1 and
at 12 a bearch was mado for him, but he
could not he found. It was remarked
soon after that "Arizona Jack" had also
disappeared. The events ot the past week
were then recalled and a little light thrown
on the matter.
It is thought that Victor, was forcibly
abducted, as his dislike for the canvas-man
was well known. Victor's mother stutc3
she Is sure that Victor would never have
left her ot his own free will, and she Is
sure that he was taken away by violence.
The distressed pan'nts visited police head
quarters yesterday afternoon, and the
various precinct stations were notified.
The railroads will be closely watched and
messages sent to othei cities to have a
sharp watch kept( for the couple.
ATts. Livingstone Is very much distressed
ovct her soni's disappearance, and the
Merlin people .are willing to spend money
to recover their star performer.

ART GALLERY IN EMBRYO
Washington Artists Engaged in a
Suitable Untldlag Secured on Con
nect Jen Avenue, nnd to Be Open
ed About .November 1.
The Society of Washington Artists pro
poses to opcniin November 1 next a new
gallery of art which shall bedevoted almost
entirely to the exhibitions of the work of
Washington artists. Ever since Its organisa
tion the society has lat-ored under the great
disadvantage of not having an adequate
place to hold Its annual exhibitions. As a
result of a iccent canvass among the local
artists, however, sufficient funds have Leen
raised to establish a permanent gahery.
The plan o the society presents, for the
first time in Its biitory. an opportunity for
a broader and more useful career. The ex
hibitions of the societj In pat.t years have
betn held at the Cosmos Club, but the wail
space being insufficient and flie time limit
on ihe exhibition being so brief, It was
found to be iu practicable to invite other
than local v.oik. The plans which arc now
maturing, however, will secure to tr-e so
clctj pcimaucntly a hall which will make
un ideal gallery lot exhibition purposes, aud
affording abundant light and space.
Sluce the 11th of last April Mr. George
Gibbs, the treasurer ot the society, has been
receiving subscriptions. The fund now iu
bank has atti'.inedsuch generous propc-rtious
that a large building on Connecticut ave
nue, near L street, has been leased and
remodeled into a thoroughly equipped
gallery. The hall is 68x19 feet, aud is
lighted bj a tkylight fifty feet long, and
extending almost the "width of the building.
A front room will be fitted up as a re
ception rojm. The walls of the gallery
arc to be covered with a dark red back
ground, with a frieze and fctencil border
It is the intention of the society to open

today. "We have had no place where we

has preferred charges against him.
The Inspector could not be found this
afternoon, and Major Moore, when asked
it a report had been made to him of
Edelln's alleged shortcomings, declined to
"J have no objection to giving out news,"
said the major, "but it will do you no
good to publish the details of this case
until the man is tried Saturday. Further
more, I do not know the details myself,
as I have ,not yet examined the papers.
I am very much opposed to giving out cases
of this kind, anyhow, because the papers
always seize upon such instunecs to uwert
that the.force is immoral. If you publish
anything about this case, understand that
it does not come from me. I decline to
give you anything until the trial."
Inquiry attheFirbtprecinct developed the
fact that Policeman Edelin is at present on
two weeks' leave, his pemlssrion, curiously
enough, dating fiom the 10th or August,

Prince Heiri Will Defend Hi
Remarks About Italians.
ARRANGING FOR THE DUEL
Impending Hostilities Aronne In
terest Throughout France Lieut,
rini Will Xot Yield Ills Cluium.
The French Pujiors DIhchhs the
Marseilles, Aug. 12. Prince Henri of
Orleans has reached thin city on his return
from Abyssinia, and it is understood that
he will at once arrange the preliminaries
for his coming duel with Gen- Albertone,
tbe Italian officer, who challenged the
prince on nccount-of the latter's aspersions
on the conductor Italian soldiers in Abys
sinia The prince's seconds, .21. Leontleff, a
TJussian officer, and M. Raeoul Mourl
chon, a traveling companion, will meet
the seconds of Gen. Albertone in Paris.
In an interview yesterday theprince said
he assumed ull resiionsihlHty for his antl
Italian afflrniatious, and desired to give
Gen. Albertone every satisfaction, but tie
will not accept- the other challenges, mean
ing llioste of Eieut. Finland Lieut. Boppa.
The interest of all France Is aroused over
the impending ho&tilitie.s, and the subject
is the engrossing topic at the duos and
in society circles in Pans. The question
of interest is as to how many duels tho
prince may have to fight in order t
expiate his offense In denouncing tho
Italian troopB as cowards.
The Paris Journal in discussing the eas?
in a recent ibsue had this to say:
"It must not be forgotten that the
prnce has by no means assumed re
sponsibility for the charge made by the
Abytsluians apuinst the Italian officers.
He merely reported what was a matter of
public knowledge. It. bis information
should prove Incorrect retraction would
be in order, and without doubt the prince
Is too gallant a gentleman to not make it
amply and readily-
"ihit what strikes most people here is
the Illogical way in which the responsi
bility has txu fastenfd on Prince Henri's
shoulders It is impossible, In any case,
that challenges are in order from any
indefinite number of Italian officers.
The challenges would be endless, for no
.. vcr rf garded a fatalemliugof theduel
The Intransigeant asks why both Gen.
Albertom- and Lieut. Pinl should be men
tioned as Prince Henri's adversaries. "One
duel for one offense" is a. fundamental
While the Intrunslgeant Is undoubtedly
right, at the same time Lieut. Pini shows
no sign of intending to yield his claim to
a meeting with the prince. On the con
trary, he states lu an interview with the
Journal's correspondent at ieghorn that
he considers Jhlb affair as absolutely dis
tinct from that of Gen. Albertone. who
has provoked Uie prince because the attack
made upon him was a personal one.
The injury which the Italian officers
have received exists none the les3, and
Lieut. Piui announces his determination
to carry out tbe mio-sion Intrusted to him.
His seconds are Lieut. Scala and Lieut.
