A meeting of the inaugural committee
at 11 o'clock this morning at the New
Willard Is expected to complete its or
ganizatlon and advance tho plans for
the Inaugural ceremonies so far that
work can be directed along well-defined
lines toward the programme. No ob
sUcle to progress has yet been encoun
tered, and despite the agitation against
the use of the Pension Office for the
Inaugural ball and against the turkey
trot, officials of the inaugural committee
itemed confident last night that they
hae no cause for fear either that the
Pension Office will be closed against them
or that an ultrafashtonable dance will
terminate an ancient and honorable In
stitution In which the whole people of the
United States is Interested
George E. Hamilton, chairman of the
legislative committee, anticipates that
Corgress will readily grant the use or
the Pension Office A resolution pro
viding that use w 111 be presented to Con
gress within a few da)e As for the
dances of the "turkey trot" fashion,
chairman of the lloor committee, B S
Minor, said last night that details of that
character would be taken up after his
committee is appointed, probably this
week or Monda.

Whether the District is to have a new

action of the Senate District Commit'
tee this morning, when the Senate con

at last session report for further in
The prlclpal point of difference in the
bills passed by House and Senate is that
the former measure includes under Its
provisions all pawnbrokers. The Senate
bill does not Include this class of money
lender, and the fear Is expressed by
those who have worked hardest for a
loan shark bill that such a provision
will do more harm than good.
The present law regulating pawn
brokers provides for a stringent system
of regulation by the police. Pawn
brokers are obliged to report each morn
ing to a special bureau aof the Police
Department the number and description
of all articles pawned in the course of
the preceding twenty-four hours This
requirement, In conjunction with an ex
ceptionally efficient Identification system,
has resulted In the recovery of more
than 50 per cent of stolen articles by
the police, according to officials of the
department. Under the provisions of the
proposed law. If pawnbrokers are made
subject to the loner lnteregi rate. It Is
feared that other police powers of regu
lation, which are delegated by the ex
isting law. but not specifically referred
to in the proposed law, will be lost.

lead to an explanation or the killing,
but their efforts were fruitless. Except
that the Identity of Moon has been es

Moon was beaten to death. It Is

and hands badly cut. The motive for
such a crime U but one or the angles
which are puzzling the police. Moon's
clothing showed he made a desperate

police do not know why he should have
been abroad but partially clothed.
Moon recenUy came to Washington

she had no Idea why any one should
