CHORUS IIL TIRES OF LMKH TEXAS Dessa Gibson Regenerates Draper Daugherty, Then 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." OFFICER KILLS SELF WHILE CLEANING GUN NEW YORK.

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 Continued on Pago Three. 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. To Join Order of Good Fellows: ORDER OF GOOD FELLOWS, ,-f . Salt Like City, Utah. ' ' I live at No Street I wish to take care of children.
