NOT YET FOUND IN SEARCH
When Mrs. Mabln Pay. proprietress of
a lodging house at 211 NVr.ti Eighteenth
street, entered a room last night ahirh
she had rented an hour before to a young
man and a slrkly-appesring young
woman, she found that both lodgers had
taken their leave, abandoning a suitcase
hr!i the woman carried.
Calling in other roomers, she opened
the grip and found a tlnv girl, appar
ently less than three days old. The po
ll r mere Immediately notified, and Ser
geant T. II. Dillon after a brief Investi
gation uncovered a pitiful story besides
finding that the mother was the daugh
ter of one of his life-long friends.
The girl, who until recently wa a
tealoiia worker In Jewish circles, has
been living at the home of relatives
while her psrents are sojourning In the
west. In the course of her duties In con
nection with the church she met a young
man who hetrsyed her and fled.
Fearing to let her relatives discover
her plight, the girl left their house and
took a room downtow n, where, the child
was born. As soon as she was sble she
told her story to the one relntlva In
whom site thought she could confide,
and he took lier to the rooming house
and the desertion of the child followed.
Tollce sought the woman last night,
but were unable to locate her. Her
friends, now that they know, want her
hack again with the child and promise
them a home. Last night they arranged
with the Child Saving Institute to care
for the Infant. In event the mother Is
found prosecution Is unlikely.
