New York, Dec, 13'.—Fearful that she has been kidnapped by white slavers and dragged into the hideous underworld of New York, detectives and police are bending every effort in the search for Miss Jessie McConn, who mysteriously disappeared on De cember 4. Several persons have re ported seeing her, both in Brooklyn an«l Ir Philadelphia, but neither her patents nor the police have sny knowledge as to her whereabouts. Tiis only exp'anation for the ».-.i "a disbpDearance aside from the one cf whito slavery is that she has hal an aMark of aplasia and is wandering auniePBly about, forgetful of her ovtn Identity.

"I saw her a few days before she left home,'' said Dr. Roger Durham, the family physician. "She was nervous and inclined to be morbid. She complained that she had not been doing as much good work as she would like to have done.' I think she may have wandered away in a state of aphasia, because of her ner vous condition and may therefore be found before a great length of time." Miss McCann was a social worker in Brooklyn.

FKASr/HMRD International Value of Gold and Silver Object of the Proposed Meet. Washington, Dec. IS.—Senator Root predicted a big expansion business that would threaten over-expansion of credit 'currency under the proposed law. "We started out to provide an elastic currency, but this bill provides for an expansive currency," said Root. "It provides for a cur rency that may be Increased, al ways increased, but there is no provision compelling its reduc tion." Washington, Dec. 13.—The proposal that the United States call a confer ence of the powers to consider a world wide basis of parity between gqld and silver, was brought into the consideration of the currency bill when Senator Thomas, democrat, pre sented a resolution authorising the president to invite England and Ger many, whose monetary system is baa ed on the gold standard, to partici pate and that five delegates be ap pointed from the United States when any two European nations accepted the invitation. The preamble of the resolution set forth that the rates of exchange be tween the gold standard countries and Silver nations of South and Central America fluctuated violently, always to the disadvantage of the gold stan dard countries. Thomas contended his resolution called for considera tion with the currency bill. "The currency problem in any one country cannot be satisfactory settled without considering the cur rency conditions throughout the world," he asserted. Efforts to get an agreement for an early vote on the bill met little suc cess today. Senator Cummins con tinued his severe criticism of the ad ministration measure.

IS—In a revolver battle between officers and four negroes in a baggage car on a North-Western train here Detective Joe Kroullk was shot through the thigh and dangerously wounded, and one negro was wounded but escaped. Ottawa, Dec. 13.—Further informa tion relative to the supposed abandon ment of Stefansson in the Arctic reg ions by the crew of the Karluk, his vessel,' has been given out. The authority of Stefansson as lead er of the expedition was disputed. The chief source of the quarrel was over the question of supplies. The Karluk was not provisioned as it would have been had she- been on a yachting cruise, but was equipped according to the views of Stefansson who believes that when a man goes to the north he should live as the natives do and get his food with his gun. Certain members of the party did not relish blubber food, and Stefans son's orders were disregarded with the result that the ship was heavily provisioned with all sorts of edibles at. Alaskan ports, principally Nome. It is understood that .the bill will be exceptionally heavy. The remarkable success with which the rebels of northern Mexico have met Is due in great measure to the strategic mind of General Pablo Florence, Italy, Dec. 13.—The au thentlcy of the "Mona Lisa" found yesterday was confirmed by experts after it was further examined today. The picture bears the seals of Louvre and other galleries in which it has been hung, while traces of the repairs on the back of the canvas known to have been made, are also visible. The prisoner, under further inter rogation by the police, reiterated the story of having stolen the picture as a part of his patriotic vengeance for Napoleon's depredations in Italy. He displayed the utmost indignation at his treatment by the police, declaring It was unjust after the risks he had run for patriotic sentiment. A num ber of prominent Italians have writ ten officials to permit the picture to be placed on exhibition in Florence, its former home, before returning it to the French government. "I"' TRADITION GIVEN BLOW. Freshmen Ejected From Saloons by Upper Classmen. Madison, Wis., Dec. 13.—A body plow was dealt the new freshmen sa loon tradition in the University of Wisconsin, in a declaration of Attor ney General Walter C." Owen, which states that any upper classman who forcibly ejects a freshman from a saloon shall be guilty of assault and battery, punishable by the laws of the state. According to the attorney general, traditions amount to nothing more or less than a custom when it comes to enforcing them in the same sense as the law of the state. The action is probably the result of pressure brought to bear upon Madi son officials, as a result of the new tradition recently established by the student legislative body. Since the student conference went on record favoring such handling of the first-year men. there has been rumor of organization among the yearlings and a possible repetition of the class wars of last spring which Went on wildly for over a «veelf.

No one here believes that Captain Bartlett, who was in charge of the ship, would deliberately leave Stef ansson, but the course of the ship would be determined by the council, and whatever the council decided the skipper of the vessel would have to abide by. It is said that members of the coun cil were unfriendly to Stefansson. and it is possible, as belief in some quar ters has it, that, finding the chip driven olt shore by the gale which sprang up. no great effort was made to return for Stefansson- At any rate, Stefansson wrote his dispatch to Ottawa October 30, so that for over five weeks he has seen nothing of the ship or the twenty-five persons who were on board.
