The White Slave Trallic.
The United States supreme court
decided the other day that the clause
of the immigration law making it a
federal offense to harbor alien girls
brought to this country for immoral
purposes is unconstitutional. The
federal government may exert itself
to prevent the importation and to
punish the at. but after the alien

jurisdiction of the state, the state
itself must determine what acts with

It was under this clause of the
law, now decided unconstitutional.
that the federal authorities were
prosecuting a crusade against the
white slave traffic. It is thought that
this decision may temporarily cripple
the efforts made to stop the traffic
in imported girls, but it should stim
ulate the states to greater efforts to
overcome an evil which does not be
long to the federal government to
deal with. There are now pending
bfore the Illinois general assembly
measures carefully designed to en
able the state to work effectively for
the suppression of this vile traffic,
and the same measures or similar
ones, should be introduced in every
state legislature and no effort should
be spared to prevent the wretched
business. That such an infamy as
this can be kept up in a civilized
land, shows that there has been on
the part of those in authority and of
those who have the power to prevent
it an insensibility and indifference to
the fate of hundreds of thousands or
poor victims of gteed and lust that
do not indicate morality or human
ity. A SH-nd thrift Nation.

Colonel John Andrew Findlay was a
swaggering young dog of sixty, and
Mr. Thomas. .his son, was as old as
The colonel had proposed just eight
times to Miss Edwina Lincoln, his de
lightful . little scompergrace of a
wealthy ward. -whereas Mr. Thomas,
being all of twenty-eight and extreme
ly serious, would never have dreamed
of the thing. ' " ' ' '
The colonel began the business when
Miss Edwina began to sii;k up her
chestnut hair, as do young ladies when
they attain dek-ctable sixteen. The
jolonel. thr.ugh fifty-five at the time,
had nothing to his credit In the way
of discovery. Invention or production;
but, then, the colonel did not stop for
a little thing like that.
"I know I'm old" explained Colo
nel John ' Andrew,' and Miss Edwiua
"You're not you're not old!" she
cried in heated denial, for they were
comrades of years and had enjoyed
many great times together.

as Old King Cole, "you will have me.

Edwina laughed and half cried. In

every day, Edwina. and nothing to
show for the years." He gloomed at
her like Jupiter displeased, and she
went out and Utmraed her big brown
eyes with tears.
The colonel continued to entertain
the fondest, rose tinted hopes, which
he carefully announced as often as
possible. Miss Edwina persisted In be
coming more entrancingly lovely day
by day. Tom went on working over
stupid figures. And when Edwina, ra
diant and beaming with the glory of
another year cast behind with the de
splsed gildings of childhood, came to
announce her seventeenth birthday the
colonel proposed again. He couldn't

his nose, puffed him an ethereal little
kiss and scampered from the room.

Of course the time had come when
Edwina became all or twenty-one and
unhampered mistress of a really re
