RUSH WORK NI6HT AND DAY
TEST WELL ON HARBERT PLACE

* DAY AFTERNOON.

GIRL'S MYSTERIOUS DEATH.
Newark Police Find Dead Body of a
Young Woman In a Hotel.
NEW YORK, March 20.—The body
of a young woman who was found in
a Newark hotel last night with evi
dence that she had been strangled,
was today identified as that of Miss
Mamie Dennis, a working girl who
lived in Jersey City. She had not
been seen since Wednesday morning,
when she left home ostensibly to go
to work.
Work of Detective.
Miss Dennis was 22 years of age.
Her identity was discovered by a de
tective that submitted ber shoes and
described the body of the girl to the
shoe dealer that had sold the shoes.
An autopsy will be performed to de
termined whether she was murdered.
An examination of the hotel register
made by the police today revealed the
fact that the men for whom they are
searching in connection with the young
woman's death had visited the hotel
several times within the last few
weeks. In each instance one of the
men was accompanied by a woman and
registered as "D. Edwards and wife.
Trenton."
Same Handwriting.
All the entries were in the same
handwriting. When this discovery
was made the police at once arrested
Theodore Young and Albert Young,
brothers of Mrs. Sarah Young, the
proprietress of the hotel. They are
held as witnesses.
A further examination today of the
room in which the body was found
resulted in the discovery of a drinking
glass with a white sediment in the
bottom. The sediment will be subjected
to chemical analysis. The police be
lieve that the girl's slayer gave a drug
to induce sound sleep, that he might
not encounter resistance.

IDE WAS OFFERED A PLAGE
IT IS SAID THAT THE PRESIDENT
WANTED HIM TO BE SHAW'S
ASSISTANT.
Senator Piles May Experience Some
Difficulty in Securing Job for
Harper of Seattle.
The story comes from Oiympia that
Clarence W. Ide, collector of customs
at Port Townsend, was recently offer
ed the post of assistant secretary of
the treasury by President Roosevelt.
It is further declared that Ide is so
close to the president that Senator
Piles will find it impossible to make
good bis alleged promise that Ide will
be replaced shortly in the collector of
customs office by F. C. Harper, man
ager of the business men's committee
during Piles' senatorial campaign.
It seems to be understood that Ide
declined the proffered post in Wash
ington, largely because of the fact that
his financial condition did not permit
him to accept it.
It is admitted, if Ide reconsiders his
decision or has not yet lost his grip
on the place, that in that event Har
per might succeed to the customs of
fice, but that in so doing, Ide would
be promoted to a higher and more re
sponsible position.
