Is Arrested for
Enticing Minors.
Philadelphia, Nov, 21.- Sixteen
girls were held here to-day by
" the police after an investigation,
and Charles E. Freyman, of
Baltimore, was arrested, charged
with enticing minors. The man
alleged that he was merely hir
ing the girls for the Torsch Oys
" ter Packing Company, and that
they were to be taken to Bay
St. Louis, Miss.
Freyman was trapped when
he tried to induce Frank M. Lee,
a whom he had engaged, to take
S16-year' old Agnes Price along
with him, pretending she was
his sister. Lee becoming sus
picious, notified the police, who
arrested Freyman.
Many of the girls left their
n homes against their parents'
e wishes. They declared at the
hearing that they wanted to "see
the :world," and thought this
would be a good opportunity.
j According to detectives who
made the arrest, Freyman had
advertised for fifty women "to
work in the South." Applicants
were to apply at 208 South
Eighth Street. where the detec.
tives said the prisoner had open
i ed an office.
Magistrate Gorman ordered
the detective to bring the girls'
mothers into court.
:) '1 want to see a mother who "
will permit a mere child to be "
taken so far away from home for
such a dubious purpose," he re- 9
marked. The mother of Agnes
Price admitted having given her 9
consent. She did not know "
where Mississippi is or what her
daughter was expected to do.
She evinced such a lack of inter
est in the case that Magistrate
Gorman exclaimed, indignantly:
"A woman like you is not fit
to have children. This little girl
ought to be taken away from you.'
The girl, in her testimpny, said
that Freyman told her that if she
were questioned on the train she 9
was the sister of Mrs. Cornelius
McStevens, who was to be on
the same train. Other girls
were schooled to tell similar
stories.
"Well, this case must be in.
vestigated further," said Magis.
trate Gorman, "and I will hold
the defendant under tail until
this is done, and send the girls
to the House of Detention as
witnesses."
