McKellar expressed disappointment
that the department did not reveal the
source of Its information.
"I personally asked the department
for information as to how the produc

Congressman Macdonald of

port More Drastic in Nature
Than the Other.
President Wilson's charges of "in
sidious lobbying" In Congress were
sustained by a final report today to
tbe House of its special "lobby" in
vestigating committee. Democrats
and Republicans joined in a report
denouncing lobbying and lobbyists,
and largely sustaining the famous
"Mulhall charges," including those
against the National Association of
Manufacturers and affiliated organi

Progressive committeeman, filed a

the majority flndings.

shown to have been In operation
around the House, and any refusal

Strangest of Disappearances Since Dorothy Arnold
Vanished, Puzzles Authorities of Many States
Thorough Hunt Is on Through the Criminal Jungles
of the Metropolis Under Direction of Mayor
Kline, But So Far Without a Single Glue-Alice
Rohe Describes 'Tort of Missing Women."
NEW YOKK, Dec. 9. Again the
vanishing from the streets of New
York in daylight, of a young woman
of culture and refinement, has set the
police to beating the brush of the
city's great criminal jungle. The
latest mystery, occurring almost to
the day on the third anniversary ot
Dorothy Arnold's unsolved disap
pearance, has again focused interest
of the country on New York, tho
Tort of Missing Women.
With Mayor Kline, a personal
friend of the family of Miss Jessie
McCann, personally directing the
efforts of the police, the city and
county is being fairly combed for
clues. Again the thinking women of
this and all other man-ruled cities
are facing the problem of marking
tho dangerous shoals shoals which
take a heavier toll of women and
girl life In a year's time than the
country's entire Atlantic seaboard
does of seamen and sea travelers.
More Than Thousand.
Inquiry at police headquarters to
day revealed that the total number
of women and girls officially report
ed "missing" in New York during
1913 will be well above the thousand
mark. While the police refuse to
make known the exact number, in

their' annual repqrt,. it wasTJearned'

IN DISTRICT BILL
Poindexter Offers Amendment to Strike Out Property Qualifica

gress District Delegate Association Has Help of Other
Codies in Support of Change.
The fJistrict of Columbia advanced one step nearer to "home
rule" mtky, when Senator Poindexter of Washington introduced an
amendment to his District delegate bill in the Senate this afternoon,
striking out the property qualification of voters in the election of a
delegate from the District of Columbia to Congress.
The amendment abolishes the obnoxious "taxpayers' clause" in
the Poindexter "home rule" bill, the qualification to the measure which
would have resulted, if passed, in the denial of suffrage to thousands
of eligible and responsible voters in the District.
