President Taft bitterly arraigned Dan

address to the voters of Kosevillo to

interests against him in his fight for

VILE DEN FOUND
Place Viola Miller Called Home in
i Rear of Chinese Laundry Vies in
Horror With Dens in San Francis
Jim Ling is Bound Over to Grand
Jury for Assault on Wo Lee
White Slave Probe May Follow.
Down In the rear of a Chinese
laundry on Riverside avenue so low
that the waters of Dear creek almost
lap along Its sides, filthy in tho ex
treme, and so unsanitary as to make
one shudder. Is a "white slave" den
which, parallels the worst offered In
San FranclBco's far famed China
town, with tho slnglo exception that
Its walls are of wood while In San
Francisco they are often hewed from
the earth Itself. Dark and filthy,
this small chamber, about 10 feet
square, gives evidence of such un
speakable horrors as to make men
wonder how such things can bo. And
It took an attempted murder follow
ing a quarrel over the Illicit earnings
of the poor unfortunate who called
this place hor home, to bring knowl
edge of Its existence to tho outside
world. Yet for ninny months, per
haps years, this den' of Iniquity has
been In existence. It escaped atten
tion because no white man had ever
entered It until yesterday.
Vloln Miller's Home?
For tho past two months It has
been the homo of Viola Mlllor, who
also lays claim to tho name of Laura
White. There sho has been tho Blave
of the 20 or SB Chinamen who mako
their headquarters at the laundry.
How many poor unfortunates pre
viously called the place home Is not
known and never can be known, but
the dun gives evidence of having been
occupied for a long timo past.
Viola Miller was not confined to
the room by the antiquated method
of bars and locks. The Chinese have
a more cruel and effective method of
keeping their slaves within their
power. They taught her tho opium
habit. Well they knew that sho
would return when she went forth
to other places about the city. Well
they knew that she would not seek
the protection of her white country
men. What of It If she did would
they not kick this poor unfortunato
on down the path she was following,
and If they did not, would not the
craving for opium make any offor of
help futile? There was llttlo uso of
locks and bars.
Ensnared Early lu Life.
According to her story Viola
Miller was forced to go to work at
au early ago to help support her
mother and sister lu San Francisco.
Sho wandered Into Chinatown one
day when she was IS years old and
disappeared. Long afterward she lo-
