Files Motion in Supreme
Court of United
"Washington. Nov. 11. Jack John
son, world'a champion .heavyweight
pugilist, through his attorney, Ben
jamin C. Bachrach. today filed a mo
tion In tho supreme court of tho Uni
ted Statos asking to be )ermlttod to
give bail pending the hearing beiore
the United States district court 5n
Chicago on an indictment charging a
violation of the whito slave traffic act.
in support of the motion it was said
the district juJgc demanded $:0,000
ball, which was declared to be ex
cessive and had refused to accept a
check of deposit for $30,000 In lieu of
bail. It is alro set out that tho dis
trict judge had tuted he would not
accept a surety company on Iho bond.
The attorney claimed In his papers
filed with the court that the white
slaco traffic act wa unconstitutional.
1 As a final reason why Johnson
should be admitted to bail by the su
preme court, the attorney stated, that
for several weeks Chicago newspa
pers had been publishing false re-j
ports concerning him whereby he had I
been prejudiced in tho eyes of the
public to such an extent that he was
unable to Induce real estate owner
to become surety for him upon his
bond unless they wero Indemnitlcl.
and that the district judgo had stated
he would not accept real estate sure
ties, if they were indemnified.
Johnson declared over IiIb break
fast that he would marry Lucllc Cam
eron, the white girl whose mother
started the inquir that brought about
the pugilist's Indictment, If he had to
serve a 10-year sentence first.
Johnson put in part of the forenoon
in reading the Bible IIo sent to his
house for a copy of the lifo of Na
poleon and several volumes of Dick
ens, lie declared that his own ca
reer resembled that of Bonaparte.
"He conquered nations and I con
quered men." he said
lie quoted a verse or two of a poem
on Napoleon by Robert Ingcrsoll.
