No scandal or foundation for any
divorce proceedings have come from
the morals inspection division of the
police department, according to
Second Reputy Sup't of Police Funk
houser, and his office has never pro
secuted a girl who promised to turn
straight and get a job.
Major Funkhouser appeared before
the finance committee of the council
last night to be quizzed by the alder
men going over the budget. When
he came to the morals division he
said that the chief had told him it
was the wish of the controller that
he be granted $24,000 instead of the
$36,000 he had asked for. The chief
told him not to ask for more than
Whereupon the aldermen appro
priated $36,000 for this division with
the provision that Major Funkhouser
be granted full authority in its ex
penditure. Chief Healey, when before the al
derman, had practically stated that
he could get along without the morals
division. The aldermen asked Major
Funkhouser if the police department

ment of Sidney Hillman, pres. of the
Amalgamated Clothing Workers of
America, at a mass meeting of tailors
in Hod Carriers' hall last night
when he declared that the tailors of
Chicago are ready to strike again
next week if called upon and are anx-.

the moment the organization believes
the time is ripe.
A crowd that filled the hall to over
flowing greeted Hillman. Other,
speakers were H. Schneid, I. Abrama,
J. Glickman, Elbaum Grandinette and
Stephen Skalka.
To her high school friends detec

up the strange death of pretty Marian
Lambert, whose frozen body was
found in the woods near the Sacred
Hheart academy of Lake Forest yes
terday. Poison caused the girl's death. But
the presence of a man's footprints
parallel with those of the girl up to
the death spot and the absence of a
vial which might have contained the
fatal potion make a knotty mystery.
Whether the girl took the poison of
her own will or whether the fatal
draught was forced on her by the
man whose footprints show beside
hers in the snow-covered woods Cor

A lack of motives for murder or
suicide puzzled authorities. If the
murder was committed it was not by
a robber, as her purse, containing a
few coins, was in the girl's pocket A
post-mortem examination of the body
showed that the girl .had not been at
tacked. With no important love affairs, a
pleasant career before her in the last
year of a high school c&urse and no
apparent troubles, the suicide motive
is missing.
