What Mr. Gerry Haa Bane to Put
a Slop to the lufntiious Trafllc
In Voung tiit Is.
Xew Vork, July 13 Mr. Gerry has
jast -.a'.ned a awe ping victory again-1
men in New Yo k who are -Minify of
theprict'ce so shoi king y ex-do te i
ii London. He induced the L gi la
tur to pass an act construing. Hie se
due ion of a child, no matt r if she
does consent, as an sbdaeiion. punish
able by imprisonment for five years or
less. Gov. Hill has signed it, and tha
law is con- in snape to be used aga-.nst
the roundrels for whom it is meant.
"I could talk on this subject for live
ars ani then only leach the begin
uing, saut Mr. Uerry. "L.-t me give
you a briDl resume of the lftrisla'ion
bearing on te subject. Yeaisagothe
law 01 xew lork, as well as nearly
every other State in tbe Union, made
it a crime punishable with death, t i
violate the 1 cr.-oo of a girl under 10.
'Content,' s) tailed, bad nothing to do
with it, the law presuming that a
child of such tender years was inca
pable of tha knowledge neccsiary t
consent to her own ruin. At the
present time the punishment for the
offense is limited to twenty years im
prisonment. We have tied
in vain to get the age cf the
child raiced to the limit
of tbirieeu yea's, but have not as yet
succesded. We have, however, ac
complished a ureut aivanc?, ai I ilull
show you. The crimo if rape, as you
must know, presupposes reei-tince
and unwilling nets oc tbe part of the
victim. If tne woman ia a willing
party to the act the enormity of the
crime is greatly letuened, and the pen
alty correspondingly. Formerly, any
girl over tie age of 10, by consanting
to her seducer, absolved him f orri tin
charge and concequenctB of rape, no
matter how much be might bave pro
turned upon her ignorance and confi
dence. Step by step, for we bave bad
to move ve-v cautiously in the mat
ter, ss legislators are conservative,
we have thought about sues modifica
tions in the penal code tbat now who
ever is guilty of seducing a girl who is
under tbe age of sixteen, ia guilty of
abduction and liable to imprisonment
for a term not exceeding five years.
The distinction here made is an im
portant one ; tbe crime of rape Bti 1 re
mains in all its heinous enorm ty ; but
be who has taken advantage of a child
under sixteen cannot now plead in
absolute mitigation of tbe offsnss that
bis victim concealed. Consent makes
him guilty of abduction and liable to
punishment acoid-ngly. The change
in the code is not based upon the con
sideration of sentiment!. This organ
ization has endeavored to make the
most thorough inveetigaton into tbe
general subject, and in this effort we
have had the voluntary oopeiat-on
of the highest medical authorities in
the laud. Tbe independent and com
bined research of these g entlemen has
shown beyond the shadow of scientific
doubt that girls shou'd be insured tbe
strong st poss b'e protection of law
until mey sui tne ag-i ot its. 1 am
e peaking now wholly i f the physic a',
material effects, casting aside a mo
ment any thought of tbe moral side of j
the subject. I will not attempt to de
liver a hygiene or anatomical demon
etra'ion of this dictum, bat will merely
assart tbat such is a fact, the conclu
sion of expert and scientific study. I
will add, however, tbat this conclu
sion ia reinforced in a most striking
way by the (xperienc s of this society.
We find tbe children who are forced
or led aal ray below the ago of sixteen
can usually be saved from th-s most
bori ibis consequences of their error;
but if a girl parses the sixteenth limit
and then fails, it becomes a hope
less care. Daar me, dear me! I
thfnk I ought to know. I have
tried ro many tims ts redeem
girls who had b?en led into vic3
after they had pa;sed their 16th hrth
day ; so many times has it -seemed as
if our efforts had been crowned with
success, on y to find that the unfortu
nate craatnre bad slipped baek into
her bad ways. I cannot recall a single
caee where final reform has been ac
complished under th a condition, but
there are a great many ins'a-iees in
our records ol aucceful work with
children who had suffered seduction
before reaching the ae of 16."
SOME OF MR. CUBBY'S WOBK,
Tne dealers in lit'le girls are hardly
ever persons engaged openly in a car
reer of vice. They carry on their in
famous traffic under tbe cover of some
1. gitima'e bus nets. Commonly they
try to make itapiear to their cus
tomers that tbe girls are on their
premises as employes in some legiti
mate work tb it the corruption is ac
c d ntal and cscln ive. Several cuees
uoexaegtrntsd !rom the experience of
Mr. Gerry's soclv will illustrate the
point meant. There used to bean in
nocent looking t'igar a'o e at 4(i Uelan
cy street. Mr. Gerry became fatitlied
that all was not right there. II s olli
cer wcra put 1 n the track by reen
who lived near by, and who
claimed that ihey had teen crimi
nal acta in fie cigar store Iron
Hi ?; r window. Bat when the ollieer
tried to see for him'elf, from the siuin
windows, he i und tbat it was iinoos-
eible to wltnes' anything that w.is go
ing on in the store. It became ap
parent that ti e inf irmers bad taken
their observat na fiom the inside, but
were ashamed to enfet-s it. They
had invented the window evidencs.
It took two mo.itbs of pe-sistent w rk,
but be got it. The proprietress ol the
store was Rachel Golde.a icz, ali is J sh
ler, ais Wiachler. Tt ii woma'i had
two da'tgbter, one under 11, the
other 10. They w re alruott
c ns'ft idy In front of thi store,
r 11 J frequently o:ber younger t rio
were ueen going in or out. Tea in it-
s l w:.8 not sig meant, but the r -ence
of highly rarpsctable men van
ennous. 'there was a lounje t the
back of tbe ih p, and a small b.-d-
room artiotning Alter a time tho
officer got sight nf ac l itis that were,
to say the least, improper, but the
fin tl and overwhelming proof of the
real nature of ('jlrierarez'g business
came when she offered him a choice
cf either of her own daughters.
This was enough for the ollieer.
He at once paced her ami the
girls including a third ased 10 under
nrreft. Goldcrauei was ttrrifiad. Hie
saw that (he ba l been completely
tapped, and, having eeenred bad, fled
to her na ive IMe.nl. FortbQbur-

clauBliters s r.nge t j wr, p0,ed nat
urally well disposed girls, not Bt4 in
love with the life they were obliged to
leid, and Mr. Gerry believes they will
remain a they are row, worthy mem
bers of the community.
It was in this same place a year or
so befurd that another noted pro
(Mirees was entrappsd and suppressed.
An ovster saloon was tbe disguise
then, 'and Annie Bushein, abas To
re.' a Ludww, was the proprieties.
When the officers descended on the
pla-ethey fonnd it occupied by five
girls not one of whom wtw over 15
years of age. Four cf tboje es ap3d.
On tiio testimony of tliB other ard tbe
ollieip, Bushein wrssunt to pticoj.
It w h a pleasant mit of rooms in a
wpeeinl 1b houss at Tlrrd avenue,
tbat Mis. Henrietta Converse, aecom
panied by her husb-ipd, took uo re-i-dence.
It was a long time l-!ore her
bu-inees was no iced, for her callers
were reputable and quiet. The clow

years o'd, bad been a daily oct-upint

lii-la of ab:ut tbe tame ae were res
cued and placed ineui'nbls aslniiH.
Converse attempted to play the highly
respectable and indignant when he
and his iLssoua'es ere arreetad one
Sunday moruiug, but lu boon saw
how damaging and direc; was the evi
dence ami lis dropped all title to the
Converse name at once. A heavy line
was imposed upon the mad ime,
Tbe society received an aoonymmis
rnmniunicatton directing its attention
to a Miss Annie Miller at No. 2M1 Sev
enth aventi". The officer afsuniel to
cultivate t tie Mrs. Miller's a-oiiaint-
ance, found that among the o'der in
mates was an lnleres ing child known
as Minnie. She was ltl years old, and
wes in prccses of training for sale.
Mrs. Miliar was arre-tisd on the clm-ira
of endangering the morjls tf her
child, for she claimed Minnie as her
own daughter. As Mr. Gprry puts it,
the evidence against ber was so strong
tha, by advice of counsel, she pleaded
guilty, aid was sentenced to imprison
ment in ine penitentiary, where she is
now. Minnie was committed to the
New York Juvenile Asylum.
The story of Kate Byrne is of a rep-
rrsentative character, the was the
fif een year old daughter of icspec'
able, but poor parent". In an evil
hour she met Racbal Howard, a mrst
notorious procuress, whose establish
ment was In Tbirtv-BPOond stnet.
Tbis woman 103k the little girl to her
place, and by what means is not
known, induced her to liecome the
prey of old liberlines. The child re
ceived a trivial eun for terservioep, a
port on ot which, at least, elie
turned over to ber mother every
oaturday night, for the 4rangment
once begun was cirried cut systemati
cally. Every morning Katie left
home pretending that she had found
employment in a factory, and re
turned regularly at tight.' When htr
parents d scoveied tlii truth they
were heartbroken. Through the ef
forts of the society Rrtchnol Howard
was biought to court a,nd afll cted
wi a a severe penauy.
Hundreds ot such-other cases are on
record and maoy shocking cad dis
gusting details are known to the
( dicers. Tbe above is bt an idea of
thf manner in which tbe horrible
work is done.

nine delegites from Milwaukee, ten
local delegates and about a dcz 11 oth

State, were githered at the opening nf
the si called labor convention which

proceedings bave not been ot a very
harmonious nature, it being evident,
f oni tbe very stir;, that tbe
various factions would not work
in unanimity. The Milwaukee dele
gation outnumbered all the others
put together, but it was so rent by in
lernsl dissension that it lost any ad
vantage its majority would have
caused. Some of tbe delega'es desired
a dicker wi h the Democrats for the
incoraemept of Gabe Bouck, while
others wanted an entire third ticket
nominated. Others did not know
what they wanted. A vo.e of the
