; The White Slave Evil.
! The report submitted to congress by
the United States immigration commis
sion on the scope of the white slave
trade is replete with shocking disclos
ures of forced and voluntary degrada
tion of men and women.
The commission found not only an
extensive traffic in women, ' but "a be
ginning at any rate of traffic in men
and boys for immoral purposes."
The trade, as the commission found
It, has its largest field of operation in
New York. There the poor girls of the
tenements and the immigration girls
are numerous and shining marks for
the procurers. Some of the girls will
ingly yield to the seductive offers to
escape from the lives of want and
oruagery iney are lorcea 10 ionow.
Others are enticed by false pretenses.
But, once secured, all are exploited
and held practically as captives for the
enrichment of the men who first secur
ed them or who sold them to other
men, or to women.
There is extensive immigration of
these unfortunate women. Most of
them come from France, and in num
bers next largest are the Japanese and
Chinese. French girl slaves on the
Chicago and Omaha markets are worth
from $500 to $1,400; Japanese girls at
Seattle for eastern shipment at $400
each or $300 each for several, and
Chinese girls at the same port from
$2,000 to $3,000.
The remedies suggested by the com
mission for the evil conditions are
chiefly that efforts be made through
government ' agents' abroad and on
board steamships to prevent tbe im
portation of women to this country
that more assiduous efforts be made in
the United States to arrest Women

the stamping out of the evil.
These measures are all aimed at the
elimination of the foreigner. They take

tND OF TELEGRAPH
TRUST NOW AT HAND?
tieorge Gould Possibly Feared Adop
tion of Xew Methods When
He Sold Stock.
New York, Dec. 21.- The investiga
tion of the telephone-telegraph trust is
bringing prominently back to the pub
lic mind the mauy happenings in Bell
Telephone and Western Union stock
and how the capitalization grew in the
days of the astute Jay Gould.
What that great old master . of
finance would have done in the pres
ent time with his Western Union hold
ings is, of course, only matter for spec
ulation, but it is being reported in
Wall street that in selling out their
Western L'nion holdings the Gould
family, beaded by George J. Gould,
has got the best of the deal.
In parting with their holdings it is
believed that George Gould foresaw
the early locking of horns in all parts
of the United States between the tele
graph monopoly and the independent
telegraph, the Telepost, which has been
successfully operating in New Eng
land for over a year and has now been
extended in many Important centers
of the middle west, such as Chicago,
St. Louis, Indianapolis and many other
.It seems that not even Jay Gould
himself could have gained control of
this Telepost system, which is an au
tomatic rapid system that transmits
and receives over any one wire from
1,000 to 2.000 words a minute.
This Is being done every day com
mercally both in New England and in
the middle west, and a flat rate of
from a quarter of a cent to 1 cent a
word is charged for Telepost mes
sages regardless of distance.
The system works with perfect ac
curacy over telephone wires without
Interrupting a conversation going on
at the same time. Besides constructing
its own transcontinental lines, the
Telepost company is therefore taking
advantage of this saving in time and
cost of construction and maintenance
by leasing ' wires from independent
telephone companies. Thus these com
panies profit Iiy an nnlookcd for new
source of revenue, and the Telepost
progresses rapidly in establishing a
system which is gradually breaking
the power of the telegraph monopoly.
Knowing that It Is only a question of
time and believing that, this is only
the beginning of a life and death strug
gle for very existence. It Is thought by
night on a charge of conspiring to
conceal property of Allen valued at
more than $25,000 and with a face val
ue of $547,0-00.
Allen was declared an Involuntary
bankrupt on Nov. 26. Later, it Is
charged, he transferred a large amount
of stocks, bonds, life insurance poll
cies and real estate to the defendants.
In default of $5,000 bail each of the
defendants was bound over for prelim
inary hearing on Jan. 4.
The conspiracy charges resulted
from the testimony of Miss Jackson.
She declared that last week while Al

threatened nervous prostration, he was
arranging with her for the transfer of
his property to his wife, in-an effort to
prevent his creditors from getting his

THE FIRS l LESSON i
In life should be to learn to save
a part of what you earn. Remem
ber, it is not how much you earn;
it's what you save that counts.. If
you are one of the men with a
good income that lives up to it,
there's danger ahead unless you
stop it. Remember there are lots
of things might happen over night
when it would be very convenient
to lay your hands on some ready
money. Make up your mind to
day to open a savings account at
our bank today. .

John Wbitson gave up his ambition
at eighteen, leaving college and tak
ing up the reins which bis father had
dropped. It was not to be temporary,
he understood, but a complete renun
ciation of all bis plans of his life as
he had hoped to make it. There were
six children and a rundown farm and
a mother whose waning strength
should be nourished rather than
drawn upon. It was the only way;
better to sacrifice his ambition than
that they should be forced upon char
ity." In bis own plans it would be
years before he could educate himself
and make a living.
So tbe books were laid aside, and be
forced his energy to a study of tbe
farm and its possibilities. His father
had been content with the old meth
ods and had fallen behind. He must
push on into the new, not only for the
necessary livelihood, but for the grow
ing needs of his brothers and sisters
and their education. A city was but
a few miles away, and gradually he
fertilized the barren fields to renewed
productiveness to such vegetables as
the markets called for.
He was shy by nature, a scholar
whose world was in retirement with
his books, but now he forced himself
upon a peddler's cart and sold vegeta
bles and fruit from house to house.
bargaining for the needs at home. He
counted his earnings like a miser and
planned for their shrewd expenditure,
and he lost sleep in the study of con
verting soil and sunshine and labor
into hard, necessary dollars.
But with it all the road was 'difficult
and sometimes almost beyond bis pow
er of endurance. Ten years and he
still wore the coat he had woru back
from college, now frayed and patched;
the mortgage on the farm remained
the same, and he still went from bouse
to house selling vegetables, not yet
able to hire a boy to do the marketing.
But. on the other hand, the brothers
and sisters were all he could have
wished. The oldest boy was working
his way through an agricultural col
lege, with an ambition for a higher ed
ucation beyond; the next was in a
technical school at Philadelphia study
lug to be a civil engineer. One girl
was at the state normal, another learn
ing to be a nurse, while the two young
est were still too young to have
thought much about their future. Dur
ing vacations they came home and
helped him, and from time to time all
of them had entreated to be allowed
to do their share in the support. But
here he was firm. They should have
what he had missed, he declared, and
it was too late for him to go back and
take up life as be had left it.
So theyears went on, and he toiled
early and late and planned and bar
gained and Improved, but for all that
he was not a farmer and never could
be, for it was his will in the work,
not his heart. He never went to a
bouse to ask trade but what he shrank
back as from a blow, and long after
his bands had grown bard and knotty
his thoughts would wander surrepti
tiously to tbe books be had laid aside.
Perhaps it was his recognized dis
taste for the worktthat made him do
it so thoroughly and conscientiously.
There was not a farm in the country
round that was better managed or that
produced more for Its size. John Whit
son was a crank, the neighbors said,
which meant that be was always on
the lookout for weak, sensitive places
In fence or field, as in himself, that
could be strengthened by timely re
newal or patching or toning up. If
there was any duty be shrank from,
that was the duty be was apt to seek
first and do most thoroughly.
By tbe time tbe younger children
were ready for tbe final studies which
were to fit them for their chosen call
ings tbe college graduate and tbe civil
engineer were at work and sending
their mites to the borne fund. And
with tbe coming of tbese mites came
John's first opportunity to turn his at
tention to tbe mortgage.
Of late years he bad not permitted
himself to regard the future as a per
sonal problem. It was-too far away.
But with the lessening of the mort
gage and tbe near establishment of
the last of the children his own fu
ture was again drawing marvelously
near. What should be do with it?
How unite it with the books which
had practically been laid aside . for
twenty years? He hail no taste for
farming, but he understood it and
could wrest from even bis few acres a
comfortaLle living. Could he do as
much with his books and dreams, of
which he had made no test?
But even In his thoughts he did not
hesitate. The books and dreams were
his, and, burden or banner, it was right
that he should take them into his fu
ture when the future should be clear,
lie would lift the mortgage first aud
would train a boy to a competent man
agement of tbe place and would put
aside enough for household needs.
Then he would be free to go. There
would be no further necessity for his
presence here. His mother was old,
of course, and needing care, but Jane,
the normal graduate, was at borne
from teaching now aud would remqin
with her. They could get along just
as well Without hiiu. His duty was
elsewhere, with his true vocation.
So lie turned fiver such work as he
could to the boy he was trainl-ig and
spent part cf each day with his books.
It would be three or four years, per
haps as many as five or six. before he
could finish paying off the mortgage
aud getting things in the condition he
wished to leave them.. But iu the
meantime he would-be preparing him
self as thoroughly as possible for this
second coming of his ambition.
But as these new years flew swiftly
by, briuging hVn nearer and nearer
to his future, tbe ambition began to
separate itself somewhat from that
of his youth. He studied himself for
this work as he had for the farming
and found there weak places that
would need patching or perhaps oblit
erating altogether. Things that were
an advantage then were no longer his,
and even tbe maturity that made him
stronger was In a way detrimental.
lie did not spare his weakness nor
magnify his strength, lu those days
he had dreamed of the work be would
do in the pulpit, going to it fresh and

thoroughly equipped in his studies.
Now the equipment would be scant,
the freshness gone. and. though the
convictions would remain and perhaps
the strength, the world had passed
him by, and he could not push to the
front with the new generation.
But if he could not attain to the cul
tured eastern church and large con
gregation of his dreams there was still
outside work In the far west which
he could do in the Isolated towns and
among the camps of the miners and
Indians. He would go there. It was
not always the . wjork one .liked that
was best, but rather the work where
laborers were few. And in the west
perhaps earnestness would be. accept
ed in place of the culture to which he
had not attained.
So he worked and studied and
dreamed and counted tbe money that
was bearing him on. and at length,
when the time drew near, he began to
study the conditions of his body, as
he had tried to those of his mind and
faith, for the years that had bridged
tbe chasm of his duty had sapped bis
strength, and out there on tbe frontier
be would need sturdy health as well
as sturdy faith.
One day Jane discovered that his
bed had not been slept In tbe night
before, and she wondered, but said
nothing. But when the next day and
the next went by and still tbe. bed
remained untouched her wonder be
came investigation, and the investiga
tion soon brought a twinkle of com
prehension to ber keen gray eyes. The
fifth evening she listened until' she
beard him tiptoeing upstairs, then fol
lowed softly. He went directly to a
bare room In an unused portion of tbe
bouse, where she beard him raise a
window. Moving noiselessly down tbe
ball, she waited a few moments out
side tbe door and then went In. He
was lying upon the floor in his clothes.
with his head near tbe open window
A flood of moonlight was streaming in
Jane crossed quickly to his side.
"John," she said severely as she
bent over him, "what does this mean?'
He started a little uneasily and
opened bis eyes, but almost Instantly
his face grew tranquil.
"I am fitting myself for my work,
Jane," he said quietly. "I did not
wish you and mother to know for
fear you might be worried."
"Fitting yourself for a death of cold.
more likely." 6he retorted. "For a
practical farmer you are the most Im
nractlcal man I ever saw. John." She
closed tbe window with a bang and
continued: "Now, I waDt a good long
talk with yon. I've wanted it ever
since you've had this notion of tbe
west in your bead. I suppose this
sleeping up here is tbe hardening proc
ess that is fitting you for life in the
camps and on tbe ranches."
"Why. yes," be acknowledged a. lit
tle doubtfully. "You know I have
never slept outside of a nice bed in
all my life, Jane, and and it seemed
a duty to prepare myself for roughing
"Look here, John Wbitson," she be
gan. Then her voice softened sud
denly. "You mean all right. Brother
John, but you can't do it. You would
die from exposure out there inside of
a month. Besides, you are not fitted
for that kind of work. I know what
you'd like to have been and what you
have been, but -you're mistaken in
thinking any part of your life lost It
has been full just as full perhaps as
though you could have done as you
wished. The Lord does not waste bis
Her hand was resting upon his shoul
der now, and her voice had grown ten
der and thoughtful.
"You want to do all you can with the
rest of your life," she went on, "but it
seems to me you can do more here.
You understand this people better than
you do that. I was through some of
the worst streets of the city yester
day, and I heard little children swear
ing at each other in the gutters, aDd
I heard of sick men and women sti
fling in close rooms, with no one to
minister to them. .1 would like to do
something myself, John, and I can
help you here, but not out there. We
have a nice farm and a big bouse that
we cannot half fill and. now that tbe
children ore provided for, have more
than we can use. Why not bring lit
tle children out here, where you can
teach them to be good farmers and I
good housekeepers? And we can fill
up the empty rooms of tbe bouse with
tired and sick ones who could not oth
erwise get country air and food. It
seems to me we could do tbe Lord's
work well here. John."'
And John Wbitson, after a long si
lence, rose slowly and held out his
band as a token of compact. But the
light which came into his eyes
was not of resignation to some new
duty: rather was It a recognition of
stronger work for which he was fitted.
"You are right. Jane." he said sim
ply. "Tbe Lord's work Is here."
