than friendliness In the fervor of his
interest in her.
After that, she claimed, he began
giving her drugs. And then slowly
and slowly she began slipping under
his influence. One day, she says,
there came a timewhen she seemed
incapable of fighting him off any
longer; her power of resistance seem
ed utterly battered down.
After the first eventful day he sug
gested that she go up to Michigan,
seemingly on a quest for a quiet place
in which to recuperate from her ill
ness. Later he would join her.
The girl went to Battle Creek and
wrote to her folks that she was tak
ing the rest cure. Dr. Wineberg and
she stayed there for a few days.
The girl then says that Wineberg
proposed a trip to Chicago. She
tried to rebel, she says, but there was
still that strange spell he exercised
and she finally made the tfip.
They registered at the Great
Northern Hotel here as man and
wife. They spent some time in Chi
cago together. But all the time the
girl says she honestly tried to break
away from his influence and couldn't.
But an alliance formed so unnat
urally could not endure. The split
up came. The girl returned first to
Ligonier. There, as she was stilish,
she was placed under the care of an
other doctor. Once away from Dr.
Wineberg the spell was broken, the
girl's eyes were opened and she told
her story to her parents. Wineberg's
indictment resulted.
But some time ago the federal au
thorities announced that there was
great abuse of the Mann act being
practiced. That many women delib
erately trapped men and then .shook
them down under the threat of fed

It is practically agreed by all that
this is true. But it works wrong the
other way also. Since the cry of
shake-down was made, many men
who are really guilty of white slavery
are trying to discredit the accusa
tions made against them by the girls J
they have wronged. This was tried
in the case of Ada Cox against Wil
liam Rufus Edwards, St- Paul mil
lionaire. But that was exploded by
Judge Landis. w
Charges of a frame-up were made
in the case against Dr. Wineberg, but ,
Dis't Att'y Clyne and Hiram Cal- '
baugh, special agent of the depart- a
ment of justice, made an Investiga-
tion and are satisfied Grace Locher
brought her charges against Wine
berg in good faith.
The case will soon come to trial.
