Why Pekin Government
Is Not Functioning
FKIN, Feb. 28 (Associated
Press).?The Government vir
tually is not functioning. This
is due to the fact that the Cabinet
is without a head, the Treasury is
empty, the suggested funding of
loans is meeting with strong op
position. and the President, who is
politically isolated, is unable to per
suade any one to accept the Pre
i miership.

"the "breezy jauntjness" that is said
| to have made Alfred E. Lindsay,j
| Nyack stock broker, so attractive to
I the society and professional women
| from whom he is accused of stealing
nearly $1,000,000 deserted him yester
day when he was arraigned before
I Judge Mulquecn in General Sessions
on a charge of grand larceny.
Lindsay looked haggard, and be
neath his tortoise shell rim glasses his
eyes were red from weeping. He was
attired in u well worn melton over
coat. frayed suit of dark serge and
?Jerbv I'll. Since his disappearance
last Christmas he has grown a scMibby
black mustache.
On hie arrival from Overbrook, Pa.,
at 2 :30 A. M., lie was arrested formally
on a charge of defrauding Mrs. W. H.
Arnold, 152 West Seventy-fourth street,
out of $17,000. After being questioned
by Richard C. -Murphy, Assistant District
Attorney, and "booked" at Police Head
quarters he was held in $50,000 bail,
j which he was unable to raise, and re
j mended to the Tombs.
As he left the court room Lindsay lit
: a pipe and for the first time since his
; arrest seemed to regain his confidence
to some extent.
I Hopes to Halse Illfl.OOO on House.
"I will be able to get at least $60,000
| on my Xyaclc property." he said to the
j reporters who surrounded him. "There's
] no mortgage on It and the furniture Is
worth $12,000. With this amount and
I the plan I have worked out I can pa.v
i off every one by 1924. except Mrs. Duke
j (Mrs. Lillian N*. Duke, divorced wife
1 of James B. Duke, who says Lindsay
I got $375,000 from her). 1 will be able
1 to pay Mr?. Duke in full by 1#26."
I Two more of the broker's victims vis

losses, according to the siorle* they

000 respectively. They would not tell
| their names, so their complaints were
not filed. They said they had lost al
' most everything they possessed, but
: were "getting on their feet again" and
I would rather never get a cent back than
i have any publicity.
The prominent financiers who. accord
j ing to the stories Lindsay told his dupes
! were members of the mysterious Domino 1
j Club have been asked to see the District
I Attorney to-day. Those whom the broker
] named Include George K. Baker, James 1
A. Stillman. Thomas W. Lamont and
Percy Rockefeller.
The "Domino Club." so called, Lind
say said, because the members went
masked, was supposed to be a sort of
secret society of wealthy men who met
In clubrooms at the Rltx-Carlton Hotel
and arranged "pools" in the stock
market. So far as the District Attor
ney's office has been able to ascertain

Mr. Murphy asked him about it.
"These women say that when you took
their money you told them you were
In a pool with Rockefeller. Baker, La
mont and Stillman. Is that .?o?"
"They were mistaken," Lindsay re
plied.
"How about the 'Domino Club?' "
"I never heard of it until 1 read fcbout
It In the newspapers. I never told any
one there was a club like that or that
1 was a member of It."
Wh"n Mr. Murphy asked him about

are "grossly excessive," the broker told
] Mr. Murphy. He frankly confessed he
had taken money from Mrs. Arnold, on
whose complaint the Indictment la based,
and he admitted getting money from
Mrs. Duke. He sobbed wh?n he talked
of these transactions, and frequently
had to take off and wipe his spectacles.
"How much do you owe these women
Altogether?" was 'one of Mr. Murphy'a

The President told Commander Mao

would not modify his decision.

It was announced that "the Presi

contained in his letter to .Mr. Kordney.
which expressed his attitude and which
remains unchanged. He proposed no
further statement and has none to

The declaration of the President to
the American l.egion officials is ad

the American Lesion commander not
