Convinced that she was a spy In the employ of the Chicago Law and Order League, hired to Inform against the band white slaves, whose victim she had been, the Connecticut police sent to the police of New Tork. Chicago, Boston and other cities to-night requests for the names of women missing from their underworlds in an attempt to solve the nustery of the murder of the young woman whose body, stabbed and mu tilated, was found weighted with a seventy-five pound stone in a pond at Redding, near here, jesterday New clews unearthed late to-da make It appear certain that the unidentified young woman was the companion of Genevieve Cavallerl, who was" taken to a lonely woods near Stratford a few weeks ago b) five white slave agents and shot to death. On the bank of the pond to-day was found a night gown perforated at the left shoulder as with a knlf-) and stained at the bottom. The victim had been stabbed under the left arm and she wore the gown at the Ume she was slain. The Immediate cause of death was a stab wound In the left temple. Find Initial on Spread. The initials "G C ' found on a bed spread wound around the body. Indi cate that she was a companion of the Cavallerl girl, murdered at Stratford, be cause in the tatter's effects were found many articles bearing the same Initials. The girl who was known to have come to, Stratford from Chicago with the Cav allerl girl dropped out of sight soon after the latter's murder. The police believe she tried to secret herself near here knowing she would suffer a fate like the other woman should the white slavers find her Apparently she was murdered In the room In which she lived and her body borne to the pond. The police think she may have met death In New York, her body being carried to the lake in an automobile Richard Apelquist. a weaver, living In the Portland Road, about 300 yards from the spot where the body was found, told to-day of a mysterious Incident he saw Friday night, which has convinced the police that the body was thrown Into the lake at that time and that the crime was the result of a well-organized TIot "I saw the light of a lantern on the bank, near where the body was found, Friday night about 8.30 o'clock." said Apelquist. "I thought It rather strange for awhile, but assumed that the man nad some legitimate business there and am not investigate "I -chanced to look up the road to ward the Danbury road that leads to Norwalk I saw another lantern light on Portland Avenue, which runs par ellel with the pond, and another at the Danbury road I saw the man -at-the Danbury road swing a lantern three times above his head In a circle. The man on Portland Avenue followed his example, apparently answering a sig nal. Of course, I am not sure that the lantern swingers were men I only saw the lights. I paid no further at tention to them. I did not hear an au tomobile pass, nor did I hear the rattle of a wagon during the evening" The spot where Apelquist Judged the man at the pond had stood was di rectly opposite to the spot where the body was found. The nightgown was found near by, and footprints of a man were discernible near It. The gown had apparently been made for a taller woman than the victim for a wojnan nearer the stature of Miss Cavallerl. ' "We have every reason to believe thst there It a connection ' between the two cases," said District Attorney Beerte to day. "The Initials 'G. C form an Im portant clew, and In addition, the dwrin. Hon of the woman who left Chicago with jiws i.avaiieri tames in many respects Slth the body found In the pond. Five en were involved In the killing of the Cavallerl woman, and three of them are under arrest. It Is reasonable to suppose that the two who escaped committed this crime."

James Bryce, Great Britain's Ambassa dor to the United States since 1907, baa resigned. It was learned last night that he has sent hit resignation to the Brit ish Foreign Office, and asked to be re lieved as soon as possible Ambassador Bryce has asked to be re lieved merely because he Is tired of be ing absent from his own country and de sires fa spend the closing vears of his life there. The Ambassador called at the White House Saturday and had an hour's talk with President Taft. It Is assumed that he notified the President at that interview Informally or his inten tions The decision ojf Ambassador Bryce to leave Washington Is deeply regretted In official circles. President Taft had ex pected to negotiate further with him In an effort to bring something tangible out cf the wreck of the general arbitration treaty with Great Britain, left after the Senate had ratified it The negotiation of this arbitration treaty was the most Important act of Ambassador Bryce's official career in Washington, and the President and Secretary Knox had hoped that his personal efforts would greatly aid In bringing about some definite re sult.

In re gard to the Panama Canal tolls Mr Bryce's friends denied last night that there was an ) dissatisfaction on the part of the British go-ernment with his conduct of the Panama Canal tolls case They said that the retirement of the venerable Englishman was due entirely to his desire to return to his home country In this connection it was recalled that reports were In circulation before Am bassador Bryce sailed to Australia last spring that be would not rweturn to Washington. The Ambassador 'himself declined to comment on the-e reports, but when he returned earl) this fall It was taken for granted that ho would remain at least until the Panama Canal case and the negotiations In regard to the general arbitration treaty were con cluded. Ambassador Brjce has been the most popular of Great Britain's Ambassadors to this countrj. and ne of the mon highly respocted foreign representatives ever sent to Washington He had a place In the hearts of Americans from the first because of his well-known writings on this government and the keen apprecia tion he had shown of American charac teristics. PRICE OF GOAL TO SOAR HIGH IN THE CAPITAL Dealers Unable to Obtain Ad equate Supply Because of Strike. PRESENT PRICES OF COAL. Stove coal $7.25 Egg coal $6 73 Furnace coal $6.75 Soft coal $3.75 There Is every indication that the price of coal In Washington will be advanced In the near future Local coal dealers last night refused to discuss the prob able advances until after next Friday. It is thought that the reason for their Fllenc- until that time Is due to their desire to get in touch with the mine open-tors and learn as definitely as pos sible the extent of their shipments. The fact has leaked out that there Is a scarclt) of coal, with a consequent rise In price almost inevitable. While the leading coal dealers assert that the) ere averse to raising prices, they will bo powerless to prevent the advance, be cause of notllicatlns received from oper ators that shipments of coal would be limited. The strike of the anthracite miners last spring Is blamed for the stringent.) When the cessation of activities came, orders on the big companies nlled un. and. It Is said, it will take them until next year to catch up. Coal dealers said last night that more orders for coal have been received within the last week than could be filled In a month, and that If the supply was not Increased suffering would be widespread. This would be especially the case if a sudden cold spell was to strike the city. Manager of the large local com panies said last night there reall) has been no advance In their prices, be cause they have-flo coal to selL They are concerning? themselves only with the task of getting enough coal tn mi the contracts made last spring. All or tnis naa had Its effect rnxn the prices of the retailers. There has been a Jump of 25 cents In the price of stove coal and 1G cents In the price of chestnut. Stove coal sold last year for S7.35, and this year the dealers are demanding 47.50 for It. Egg and fur nace coal remains -the same. Those who deal In soft coal say that the cause of higher prices Is the short age of cars and labor.

The appointment of Mr Bryce to the Washington Embassy was doublv ap preciated by this government, because his arrival marked the first Instance in which Great Britain had sent a rep resentative of the highest distinction to the I nltrd States.
