THIEF EXPECTS FREEDOM FLORENCE, Dec 14.

A close examination of the painting "Mona Lisa" has disclosed a slglht abrasion on the cheek and a scratch on the left shoulder, which were received while the picture was in the hands of Vincenzo Perugia. The chief of police says Perugia firmly believes that. he. has rendered a service to Italy and is under the impression fftat his imprisonment was necessary to save, the face of the authorities, and that soon he will be. released and rewarded.

crowds gathered at the TTffiiH gallery today, where the "Mona Lisa" was exhibited. Although strong "cordons of carbineers were drawn 'un around the building and guarded the entrances and halls, the struralns of the multitude to get inside resulted in great disorder. Soildiers were thrust aside or knocked down: windows smashed and the people swept through, ueing lorcea out tne exits by the surging masses behind. In four hours more than 30.000 ner sons viewed the Leonards. masternier When order was partly restored 125 visitors on the average were admitted every minute LOVE AFFAIR MAY HAVE PROMPTED THEFT.

PARIS, Dec. 14'. Detective Nicaussce has made an im portant discovery among the effects of Vincenzo Perugia, which seems to throw fresh light on his theft of "Mona Lisa." The discovery tends to snow mat in taxing the picture from the Louvre, Perugia was not actuated by purely patriotic motives, as he pretended was the cause, and that the tnert was long contemplated. Among a mass of miscellaneous papers were two note books, dated December, 1910, the time when Perugia was employed by a firm of decorators which was engaged at the Louvre in placing glasses on pictures. The writing in the note books, the detective says is in the hand of Perugia.

The first book contains a list of celebrated multi millionaires, including the late J. Pierpont Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. The second contains a list of art dealers and collectors, not only in the Italian cities of Rome, Florence and Naples, but in Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfort and othely German cities. In this list appears the name of Signor Geri, the antiquary of Florence.

The police investigations have revealed the fact that Perugia was deeply in love with an exceedingly beautiful girl, the image of "Mona Lisa." Ninety three fervent love letters from the girl, signed Mathilde, were found in Perugia's roam. It appears that some years ago Mathilde was brought to a dance hall by another Italian, who quarreled with and stabbed her and then fled. Perugia witnessed the attack upon the girl and, being struck by her beauty, lifted her into a cab and took her to the home of an old Italian woman who nursed her back to health. The acquaintance thus began devel oped into an ardent love affair. The police hone to obtain from the girl information concerning Perugia which would clear up the question as to Whether he had accomplices, in the abstraction of the painting from the Louvre; They have so however, bean unable to find any trace of her.

Barrere, has notified the Italian government that France will gladly permit the exhibition of the "Mona Lisa" in Rome.

"PATRIOT'S FATHER STILL HAS FAITH IN HIS SOX. MILAN, Dec. 14. The father of Vincenzo Perugia, who resides at Lulno, was interrogated today by the authorities and expressed the deepest regret at his son's deed. He declared that he did not believe him to be a common thief.

At Dumenza, in the provinceof Como, Perugia's birthplace, carbineers today arrested his brothers, who were hiving with him in Paris when the theft of the "Mona Lisa" was committed. The brothers were suspected of being accomplices, but proved to the satisfaction of the authorities' that they were not. AVERAGE TEMPERATURES PREDICTED THIS WEEK WASHINGTON, Do. 14.

TO ADJUST DIFFERENCES WASHINGTON.

Dec. 1 4. The long struggle over currency reform Is expected to come an end in the Senate next Aiturday. Administration leaders, who have been exerting every effort to enact into law before January 1 the second great plank of the Democratic platform, were confident tonight that an agree ment could be reached that would permit a final vote in the Senate by six o'clock Saturdaw. Republican Senators who have been treating across party line with the Democrat probably will come to an un derstanding with the majority leaders tomorrow.

Tne Democrats are anxious to close general debate by Thursday, and to devote the balance of the time to the consideration ot amendments to the bill. If the final vote can be taken Saturday, it is believed the differences Detween Senate and House can be adjusted and the bill sent to President Wilson for signature before Christ mas. Republican critics of the measure probably will demand some changes in it as a condition giving their consent to a definite time for a vote. It is considered doubtful whether the guarantee to deposits to which many Re publicans object, can be taken out of tho measure; but a strong enort win he made to eliminate that provision which authorizes the redemption of the proposed new treasury notes either, in gold or "lawful money." The House Mias lost sight of the cur rency bill in the press of new legislation demanding consideration.

POJNCARE WOULD COME IF WILSON RETURNED CALL PARIS', Dec. 14. Concerning the talk of a possible ex change of visits between President Poincare and President Wilson, the Matin says that M.

Pinchon some time ago discussed the projected visited with the then minister of foreign affairs, but in view of the doubt existing as to whether the constitution of the United States would permit President Wilson to return a visit by M. Poincare nothing definite could be decided on. The Matin adds that it is certain an exchange of visits between President Wilson and President Poincare would be received with the liveliest satisfaction by the public of both countries, and that it would strongly contribute to the maintenance and development of the close relations which for so long a time have existed between the United States and France.

The steel trade reported resistance to further price concessions, the cost of production nearly reached and the conviction that necessary requirements were accumulating.

Steel mill operations and furnaces in blast, however, were in course of reduction. This rather than growth in new orders accounted for the smallness of thedecrease In the United States Steel Corporation's unfilled orders. The addition to the copper surplus came entirely from contraction of domestic deliveries. Idle freight cars increased rapidly in number vn the last half of November, and the decline in railroad earnings, was extended. Reduced prices and low stocks led to expectations ot an early revival of mercantile demand.
