William M. Blake will visit State's
Attorney Hoyne to lay before him
evidence to show that 1,800 women
driven from the red-light district at
the time of the vice crusade are now
housed in buffet flats in the fashion
able parts of the city.
"Gleason is wrong in saying that
Hoyne has disregarded information
brought to him concerning disorderly
houses," said Blake today. "The only
information ever brought to Hoyne
was the stereotyped information
which the Committee of Fifteen al
ways gives concerning a few houses
that any small boy could locate. And
there has always been prosecution in
"But the real vicious places that
Hoyne should know about are the

The massage parlors were thought
to be a vice feature long since extinct
This one was caught on March 17.
The keeper was Edith Caird. Pros
ecutor Reker introduced-her record,
which showed that a massage parlor
operated by her was raided in 1912 by
Officer Harry L. Cullett and three in
vestigators from the civil service
At that time the Gaird woman op
erated her parlor at 537 South State
street. In the same building was the
United States recruiting office in
charge of Lieut. Franklin Kenny.
Lieut. Kenny appeared in court
against the woman and said that his
soldiers were being incapacitated for
duty owing to their over-indulgence
in "massages" at the Gaird place.
She won on a technicality then, but
was ordered to move. On March 17
of this year when the police raided
the place they took the Caird woman
and three young girl inmates.
'In court this morning the Caird
woman said she merely ran a mas
sage and bath house.
In her place men would first bath
and then be massaged by the girl.
Mrs. Caird on the stand said she
had been in business for twenty
years. She claimed the girls were
merely hired to massage people and
were paid $7 a week.
The judge criticised the woman
in caustic terms. He expressed sur
prise that she had not been convicted
before and intimated he would fine
her the maximum.
Her lawyer then asked that the
case be postponed until Tuesday, so
that he might prepare the necessary
papers to take the case to the higher
court. The judge- agreed.
The girls were fined $5 and costs
