As we were leaving no possible source ot infor? mation uninvesttgated, we decided to ilhd out where Mr. Griscom was anil see It In: could help us out. ! "With that purpose in view. I called upon Mr, Lloyd s. Griscom. n'io put I j.io in touch with hn aunt of Mr. Grls- ! coin, who was then in Pittsbnrg, and I front the aunt I learned that Mr. Gris? com was in Florence, Italy. Mr. Crls- ! Coin's Cither an 1 mother were with j him In? Florence at the time. The Ar- | riolds then wrote to two ladies then in 11i11 >. who had known Miss Dorothy since she was a bit by, and who were as older sisters to her. and told them <f i!;e pi id's disappearance, ami asked i ? ru to go ;-i Florence and talk with .Mr. Gr?.<edni find ask him if he could j help them in any way. 'r'riio ladies were told to cable if lie knew anything of value that would I alii us In our investigation. Imme- j ?natch ? ? 11 hearing from the Arnolds j t t'esi two k<d I es wont to Florence and saw Mr. Griscom. He was perfectly; I frank with them, ami answered all i questions and told everything he knew tu theni. tIio fiill story of hi:; friendship with Miss Arnold, | "The ladies found that Mr. Grise?hi I ?was living quietly hi Florence with, his parents, and w rote its to thai of- j feet. < m receipt of that letter from the ladles we dropped the Griscom pari of the in vest Ration completely. * i though he lijjis since been seen by Mr. .lehn Arnold.

"I now wish to say that the Arnold i family, as also their lawyers; and the detectives, are absolutely certain that Mr. GrlseoiU knows nothing whatever us to t>o manner of Miss Dorothy's disappearance or as to her present v ... i eahouts. :f she 'or .-till alive.

"Now. as to that story that we kepi j back J-omething from Hie. police, and J did hoi tell t hem about Mr. Griscom until after ho left Florence; That is quite, tiuo. We diil not tell ihciu for tie reason that we didn't have, any reason to believe ho knew anything more about it tban did any of the other numerous friends that .S?ss Dorothy had; I also wish |ij say that a story printed that Mr. Arnold objected to Mr. Grlseom's visiting his homo is tin- j true, "1 have now told yon tin. complete i story of what may be termed tho the? ory In this ease, and tho investigations that have been made have completely eliminated th it theory." I Mr. Keith then said that .Ibhii \X". Arnold, the elder brother of the miss Iti? girl, bad made a Dip to Kurope. Mr. Arnold, ho said, stilled from Now York on the third of tiii..- month, and went first to Carls and then to a few Fraport tities of that country Going i to Flpreiicc. Sir, Arnold saw and talked With Alt'. Griscom. "The reason that Mr. Arnold, on bis arrival from France yesterday.'' said Mr. Keith, "said that he knew nothing of the case was because lie .lid not know that tho matter had boon made public while lie was on the ocean fbnnew'nrd bound. The reason. I here fore, that )!>? made that statement was because be wished lb keep, a- he thought the invest igatlon was bring made, secret. Iis it was when ho left. The host phase id' tivo case that Mr. Keith touched upon was the one that letters to tiie" missing girl had been Intercepted, which led I ft the conclu? sion that possibly the young woman had a love, affair. Mr; K'eltlt denied that any letters had been Intercepted, and said that ho had read every letter which was found in Miss Arnold's desk after her dJsnnpcaranee, and that none of tlieiii shed any liuhi on the matte; of her disappearance. "Tho next theory was Hint of sui? cide. We could Und not one single Ih ? ident th lio-r life that would give a basis for such a theory. She was al? ways happy, and her disposition wir? such as to make foreign cw-n a Sug? gestion of self-, lost met Ion. Then there.

' Lastly." added Mr. Keith, "as to the present whereabouts of Miss Dorothy's hierher. There hi hot h scintilla of truth in tiny story that she may have P"!:e to her da light er.

"At tills moment .Mrs. Arnold is ab? solutely in ignorance of her daugh? ter's whereabouts; fate of the manner of her disappearance.

Now Vo'rk, January 21?.?Nothing has so stirred up tlie rank and file of l ho local customs service as the announcement made yesterday that the names of at least a dozen men had been sent to Washington with a recommendation that thee be dropped ? for the good of the .service." In some eases those in the list were accused by the self-confessed grafters in the sugar eases, and the alleged offenses were committed years ago. The charges against some of the men, if not. all of them, are .said to lie contained in the minutes .of the grand jury. They in? clude taking money from importers for expediting the discharge" of their imports. This, customs men say. had \ been a practice for forty years before Mr. I.neb became (lie collector. ? According to a plan in the service, there was a conference at the custom house, at which It was decided that criminal prosecution was Impossible. Then the decree went forth that the accused men must go. They were called before the collector and told that they must either resign ?r bo summarily dismissed. They would not resign, and so n recommendation for their dismissal has been sent to the Secretary of the Treasury. The ac? cused have protested because they did not got either a chance to inspect the minutes or disprove the charges at a hcarlTtg. ? hie of the men accused Is n deputy surveyor, with years of honorable ser? vice to his credit. He wanted n chance to prove his innocence, but this was. de? nied. Some ->f the accused men have protested both to Collector l.neb and tho Civil Service Board. They de? manded a hearing. This was not grant- I od, and now their fate rests with the I Treasury Department. At tho custom house it was said yesterday that thoj names of th" accused men would bo made public tb-riiorrbw. "The civil service rules <]o not make it obligatory to give these men a for? mal hoarinir." said Surveyor ITenry. "It is merely required that they get formal notice nf the charges, together with the specific counts; Kaeh man has three days lo make written reply to the charges," "Aeo.vrding to tho law." said Collec? tor I.oeb. "any employe of tiie customs service may bo removed for cause, i other than political or religious, with, otii giving bim a formal hearing;" Influence has been brought to havH the collector retain at least some of tin? accused men. ITe refused on the ground thai his bouse cleaning at this i port would not be complete unless 'they wore forced nut of the service. The fact that some of the in stand well now. lie thinks, would have a bad effect if they wore allowed to remain. Some of the men are well liked hv tho eoi loetbr. he savs, and have shown great ability.

GEOGRAPHERS WANT PROOFS Cannot Subscribe liven to What Arc Almost Certitudes, Says Mnlot. Paris. January u'S.?Dr. Joan Charcot, tlic French explorer, whose brilliant work in I be Antarctic Is woll known, has published n mugnillccnt plea for justice In France for Captain Peary. ' lit; cries shame upon Die French for their failure to accord hliii the honors spontaneously accorded by Belgium, j I liiUK.'ry. Herlln, Mamburg, Dondon. Vienna, etc. "Is It." he asks, "bocausc In Frauen | geography is generali v ignored and that, for the sake of hiding our igno- I ranee, there is an endeavor to produce the Impression' of a greater knowledge than thai possessed by others? "Or, Is it from jealousy, because we are the nation which has made the least effort toward the conqlicst of polar mysteries? "We owe It to our country, always so keenly hungry for justice, to settle ibis matter aright. AU France, en? thusiastic as it is over arts of heroism without distinction of nationality, owes it to itself to repair one of the groat t ts pieces of Injustice of hin corituryi" Dr. Charcot's eulogy <>f Peary Is tbuohingly eloquent. "In tho calm and solitude of the. Antarctic." ho says, referring to his \ own whereabouts when the news of i tho finding of the North Pole lirst ?, reached him. "if an error or a Ho might b*? admitted in regard to the claims of Dr. Cook, tho idea that Peary was an Impostor could not by anv possibility have presented Itself Peary. the I unique example, in the history of e.\- I plorntioh, of a hieb degree of obstinat?- I courage?Peary, who. during almost a quarter of a century; had abandoned j family ties, friendship and comfort with the solo ideal of bestowing glory : upon his country nnd erasing the word j 'unknown' from a portion of our glohe ? - -tirelessly sol forth and returned, and ; sot forth ag.tin. with a full knowledge: of the sufferings that must be endured j anew: For fifteen years bo combated apathy.

For i -l 1 months this uhoqualod man lived amid tho lee, car? rying on a titanic struggle with cold, fatigue and famine." Ii seems thai there is an clement in the Soeloto do Geographie, Including some of its officers; which, after the i fashion of a certain animal, has mute- ! ly and obstinately resisted all efforts made, even by distinguished French? men, to induce it to take action in honoring Peary, who. in the meantime, has declared, It Is said, that he will hot come to Paris except on the so? ciety's invitation. Baton Joseph llulnt. secretary-gen? eral of the society, has given these rea? sons, which he says arc also those of its president, Prince Poland Bona? parte: "Wo have in France quite a false impression that going to the pole is more a matter Of sport than of science. Captain Peary is not a sportsman, but a savant. He is a very groat traveler, certainly. Do not forget that wo sent our gold medal to him after the last but one of his voyages, and that we telegraphed him out congratulations on his final return. "D U precisely because wo have greatly honored him; because wo have the highest respect for his personal dignity, for the quality of his efforts, that we cannot now. without proofs, render him official homage.

After an illness of noarlv seven weeks. Miss Nancy Green Stokes, a student at Stuart Mull for the past two sessions. died at the King's Daughters' Hospital Thursday evening at half-past rt o'clock. Miss Stokes became 111 with appen? dicitis on December llth, and was taken at once to the King's Daughters' Hospital and was operated on by Dr. Stuart McGulrc. who was sunnnonen I com Hi eh mmol. She was seriously ill from the first, but her friends cher? ished the hope that she would recover. She made a brave tight for her life, and won the admiration of her physi? cians and niirses by the patience and sweetness with which she bore her suffering. Everything that medical and HUrglCal skill could do was dorn; for her. and prayers were offered dally for her recovery, not only among her schoolmates end teachers, who were devoted to her, hut In various parts uf the Stale. Miss Stokes; who was In her six? teenth year, was a girl of beautiful character, antl was much beloved by all who knew her. She was a great favorite at Stuart Hall, where she. made ;? brilliant record. Her death has cast a gloom not only over Ihn school, but over the community, which had become much Interested In her. The many calls arid Inquiries made dally at the hospital antl at the school were evidences of the Interest felt in her ease, and the Staunton people sym? pathize deeply with Mr. and Mrs. Stokes and with her teachers and schoolmates. Funeral services will be held this ?ftefnooh at 5 o'clock at Emmanuel Church, conducted by the Hev. Robert I t'. .letl. rector of Hie school, nnd the Rev. i>. H.

Duties were suspended all day at Smart Hall, and the entire student body, together with the teachers, will attend the funeral. While In the hospital, Miss Stokes had a series of relapses, ?lue tu com? plications, that has seldom been equaled, When it seemed thai she would recover from the attack of ap? pendicitis, pneumonia developed, nnd at three or four distinct stages she was Oil the very brink of death. She would begin to mend, however, and during the past two days It seemed as if her hope? for recovery were brighter; but finally the end cam?, and her spirit peacefully took Its flight into eternity. She bore up bravely to the last, and only ten minutes before death came she expressed the belief that she would recover. even to almost certitudes: "The majority of the So.lelie de Geographie are convinced that Captain 1'eary reached the goal of which so many others have dreamed; but that It Is their private opinion. The serious body Is unyielding as to the absolute knowledge of that to which It puts its attestation. It cannot go beyond that and consecrate, by a public act, by an official reception, th.il which Is not ab? solutely demons! ra t ed. "It ifl our fundamental maxim of re? search; and. l dare assert, it must be. proof of proof. There is no true science without that. The glory remains to Captain pear;.* of having tried ?of hav? ing probably succeeded?-but upon Cap? tain Peary "Is Imposed the duty of af? fording an indisputable solution of the enigma." In a second article Dr. Charcol re piles to the statements of Baron llulnti It is not incumbent on Captain Peary, he declares, to offer proofs to the >o ?letle de Geographie, but the society itsrlf should ask for them If it doubts the positive conclusions reached by the American committee of savants widen examined them. (Continued From First Page ) to the bar; there are no women on the boards of control of the State charita? ble Institutions, where most woman's Influence Is needed, and woman ia not eligible to any elective position. "There ajffo certain Interests that would be threatened did woman's suf? frage become a fn-'t. These are, large? ly at least, the Interests of immorality, intemperance and greed. Certain man? ufacturers and operators of large stores do not want to ace woman's suffrage, because its past history has proved that it insists on the proper regulation of child labor. The saloon and gambling house keeper do not want to see woman's suffrage, because they know It will mean an end to their traffic in human lives. The corrupt politician does not want to see Woman's suffrage, because it will mean the puri? fication of elections and his removal from olllce. The directors of the white slave trafllc do not want to see equal suffrage, because they remember how quickly they had to leave Denver, where, the women vote, in order to cs capc a prosecution they laughed at In . New Vork, where tne women do hot' vote. "But the argument upon which Ihe ! opponents of equal suffrage, dwell most is that it will break up the home and deprive womnn of her chnrm. Une might reply that it does not seem to have, broken up the homes In Colorado. Wyoming, IJlnli or Idaho; that bridge whist and punch parties are liable to do a great deal more damage to the home." Mr. Maclaehlan's sermon made a de? cided impression. At the close of the service most of the women crowded about the minister and showered him with congratulations for championing their cause.
