Los Angeles, March 17. Thomas
White, United States secret service
operative, was murdered here yes
terday by members of the Kumiyaei,
the Japanese branch of the interna
tional white slave organization.
White knew that he would be mur
dered. For months he had been on
the trail of the white slavers, and at
last had been able to obtain positive
evidence against a number of the
dealers in women.
One week ago, White came home
to his young .wife and said to her:
"I've got the goods on some of 'the
white slavers now. They knpw I have.
It is only a. question of time until they
get me. And when they do kill me,
I want to know that someone who
loves me, will hunt them down until'
the crime is avenged."
Mrs. White went; down von her
knees before her husband and sol
emnly pledged herself to avenge his
murder if it should take, place.
'".Today, she, told newspapermen
.LLott that pledge ,andL how she
iieant to carry it out. v
"I shall devote my life to avenging

"I do not care how long it takes me;

from me by human fiends; I intend
to avenge his murder.
"My husband found out many of
the secrets of the-Kumiyaei. The
members of that organization think
they buried, his discoveries when! they
mured e'red him.
."They didnt. My-husband told me
most of what he found out about
Ibis horrible international organiza
tion that deals in human flesh and
blood. HI remember what -he told me,
and I'll use it."
. "Don't you realize," Mrs. White-was
asked, "that the men who murdered
your husband, probably will not hesi
tate to murder you if you let anyone
know of the information you possess,
and if you openly say you intend to
avenge him?" '
"I don?t care," replied the secret
service agent's widow. "I do not care.
My husband was the only man I
ever loved: l loved him better than
life. They have taken him from me
these beasts who prey on women
I intend to have vengeance."
KIND OF HIM -
A certain bishop, an ancient advo
cate of teetotalism, found one of his
flock, to whom he had preached for
years, leanin'g in helpless, drunken
ness against a wall.
"Wilkins!" cried the bishop, inex
pressibly shocked. "Oh; Wilkins! You
in this state! I am sorry l am sorry
I am sorry!"
As the bishop was passing on the
other side Wilkins pulled, himself to
gether and hiccoughed after him:
The bishop hastened back in-the
hope of 'hearing a resolution of re
pentance. "Bishop, if you are really .sorry, I'
