MAKING A RIGID INQUIRY.
Missing Child Last Seen When In
Custody of Belle Moore, Mulatto
Woman Now Under Arrest.
Was to Have Been Sold.
New York, May a. That an eleven-year-old
girl who was bargained for
by the women agents of the Roekefel
lur white slave grand jury has beets
brutally murdered and her little body
hidden somewhere, if not destroyed
completely, is the belief of Assistant
District Attorney James 15. Iteynolds,
who Is in charge of the present Inves
tigation, which has resulted in the ar-
rest and Indictment of two men and a
woman on the charge of trallickltig In
voung girls. I
Who this child Is, who her parents
are or where she came from Is as
much a mystery as is her present
whereabouts. When last heard of she
was said to be In the custody of Belle
Moore, the mulatto woman who is now
in the Tombs. The Moore woman will
not say a word about the child.
The price paid In the New York
"white slave" market for young girls
was made public after the special
grand Jury of which John P. Rockcfel
ler, Jr., Is foreman had returned In
dictments against Bello Moore, Alec
Anderson, a negro, and Harry Levin
son charging them with the sale of
four girls. It appeared that George A.
Miller, a former government agent,
who worked for the congress commit
tee In 1007 in the Investigation of im
migration abuses and who is one of
the secret agents employed by the dis
trict attorney in the present Investiga
tion, paid $40 for Ida Grecnberg and
Gussle Ehrllch, whom he procured
from Harry Levlnson, and $120 for
Alice Hilton and Bello Woods, two
girls said to be under eighteen, whom
be purchased from Belle Moore. Alec
Anderson Is said to have had part in 1
the second transaction. :
