servant of thef people- who, f?- at the,
head of an organization which makes .fi fteen million dollars" a year by sell ing the daughters of the people is. to be exposed. The facts as .to the organization of white slayers really go much, farther than 'does the quoted statement of the Chicago vice commission. . The white slavers of all the" world are banded together ih a secret so ciety. The international headquarters are in Paris. From there, the .slimy hands of its agents'reach all over the world. The organization is immensely wealthy. Several years ago the Christian nations of the world sol emnly united to stamp ouf the or ganization And the combined power of the Christian nations has not yet been able to do so. The following telegraph story from Los- Angeles shqws just how power ful and how sinister the white slave organization is. Los Angeles, March 17. Thomas White, United States secret service operative, was murdered here yes terday by members of the Kumiyaei, the Japanese branch of the interna tional white slave organization. White knew that he would be mur dered. For months he had been on the trail of the white slavers, and at last had been able to obtain positive evidence against a number of the dealers in women. One week ago, White came home to his young .wife and said to her: "I've got the goods on some of 'the white slavers now. They knpw I have. It is only a. question of time until they get me. And when they do kill me, I want to know that someone who loves me, will hunt them down until' the crime is avenged."

"My husband found out many of the secrets of the-Kumiyaei. The members of that organization think they buried, his discoveries when! they mured e'red him. ."They didnt. My-husband told me most of what he found out about Ibis horrible international organiza tion that deals in human flesh and blood. HI remember what -he told me, and I'll use it." . "Don't you realize," Mrs. White-was asked, "that the men who murdered your husband, probably will not hesi tate to murder you if you let anyone know of the information you possess, and if you openly say you intend to avenge him?" ' "I don?t care," replied the secret service agent's widow. "I do not care. My husband was the only man I ever loved: l loved him better than life. They have taken him from me these beasts who prey on women I intend to have vengeance." KIND OF HIM - A certain bishop, an ancient advo cate of teetotalism, found one of his flock, to whom he had preached for years, leanin'g in helpless, drunken ness against a wall. "Wilkins!" cried the bishop, inex pressibly shocked. "Oh; Wilkins! You in this state! I am sorry l am sorry I am sorry!" As the bishop was passing on the other side Wilkins pulled, himself to gether and hiccoughed after him: "Bishop bishop!" The bishop hastened back in-the hope of 'hearing a resolution of re pentance.
