has fallen like a bombshell In lliu (inxllr
This Is n totally different ehniigo fmni
thoso ou Mhleli Stead has Invited, mid, per

seilous than slander or tho publication of
obsccno mutter. The maximum penally Is
two years' linpilsoiinient at bard labor, and
Ticasiiry Solicitor Poland claims lo lmvo
iiinplo testimony lo secure a conviction.
The prosecution aver that Stund, lu the
course of tho Investigation of Loudon Im
morality, wanted to havo a young mid In
nocent girl abdiielcd ami subjected to va
rious Indignities Just to show bow easily nil
this could ho done. Seeking the assistance
of Mrs. Jmrelt, who had formerly kept a
house of 111 lame, but was then siippnuil
to have reformed, ho hired her to projuro
such n girl. Mrs. Jarrctt found ,u girl
Kllza Armstrong, and got possession of her
by rcprcrentlng that she was lobe employed
to do light housowiiik.
Tlioelilld was then taken to an lininnr.il
resort, drugged, nnd abused lu various
ways, although she was not criminally as
saulted. Then tho child was turned over
to the enro of the Salvation Army and kept
concealed by General Ilooth anil Ills asso
ciates until her mother sought the assistance
of thu police and finally recovered tho
child, It Is admitted that all this was done
ns nn expeiliueut and for n motive which
may have satlslled tho consciences of those
engaged lu the plot, but it M-asuuvelthcluss

caused great physical and mental Miffcrlng
