HUE OF UNCLE SAM FIKED ON ALIEN ACROBATS A NEW PHASE OF WHITE SLAVE TRAFFIC. How the Latest Scheme la Now Be- ing Operated. Chicago, June 25. (Special Corre pondence of The R.-publ? an.) Fed eral prosecutors have not relaxed their vigilance in checking importa tions of foreign white slaves, not withstanding the United States su preme court's recent decision knock ing out the third section of federal immigration statutes that apply to white slavery. Within the last six months, according to the United States district attorneys office here, no less than forty-three procurers and 1,000 of their bewildered alien vic tims have been deported. Opening of the circus season, however, has re quired especial vigilance at ports of entry and interior cities in regard to the acrobatic and equestrian families who come from abroad, for the privi lege granted actors to enter the Unit ed States has become the last and best device of the white slave traf fickers to violate the federal laws without being caught. "Acrobatic 'families' one sees do dizzy things while the band plays are not necessarily real families," says a bulletin issued by the Wom an's World committee on legislation against white slavery. "The younger ones being quite as likely to be ap prentices 'bound out' to the master to learn circus stunts as the man who is head of the family. ,The young diavo los respond to very different names in the dressing rooms. This fact Is bo Well known to the authorities that bringing girls in as acrobats has been a loophole for white slavers, although Henry Lehr tried it so unsuccessfully that he is now doing real work, for the first time in his life, in Fort Leavenworth with two years more ahead of him and also payment of a fine of 12.500. Assistant United States District Attorney Harry A. Parkin of this committee recently explained the workings of the acrobat scheme in an address to the States Attorneys Asso ciation of Illinois. " 'He (Lehr) to avoid being caught I at New York by the immigration au thorities,' he said, 'had printed large posters about three feet long and about a foot and a half wide contain ing pictures of two women and a man clothed In the costumes of acro bats. With these he had certain names placed upon the bill, and the advertising revealed the fact that these impersonators were acrobats bound for the United States, and of course were not subject to the immi gration laws. He put the bills in his trunk and carried them in his valise. He got through New Tork safely with the two women and brought them to Chicago. They were sold into houses of prostitution, and last December the case came to the attention of this office; " we extradited the defendant from San Francisco, secured the con fession of the man who had actually done the importing, and sentenced the defendant to two and one-half years in the federal penitentiary at Fort Leavenworth and fined him 12,500. The man who actually did the im porting returned to France within two months after he had brought these two women to the United States, gathered together four more French women and brought them to New York; but fortunately he was recognized, captured, and the women were taken and deported, and he is now nerving a term of four years in the federal penitentiary at At ta Ga. " 'There Is and lias l.c-f n a system atic attempt, and a successful at tempt in most Instances, to bring to this country, these foreign wom en,' Mr. Parkin said. 'We women from Norway, from Sweden, from Russia, from Poland, from Eng land, from France, from Spain, from Italy and in one or two instances from Austro-Hungary. " 'The statute under which the United States district attorney of fices were operated was one which was passed originally in 1S75. At that time it simply forbade the Importa tion of women for Immoral . pur poses. Again, in 1903, the law was amended and a section was added not only prohibiting the importation, but the harboring in pursuance of the im portation. Again, on February 20, 1907, congress enacted the third sec tion of the statute the one which has recently been declared unconsti tutional by the supreme court. That law attempted to prosecute men not only for importing and keeping in pursuance of the importation, but it also said 'that anyone who shall keep, maintain, control, support or harbor (irrespective of importation), any alien woman within three years after she shall have entered the United States, shall be deemed guilty of a felony." In other words, con gress attempted to put around the women who come to the country a protection . during three years, the first three years of their life in the United States. The supreme court has declared that congress had no such power, so that unfortunately we are now' hampered In our prosecu tions and are compelled in every in stance to prove either the importa tion or the harboring by some one who had something to do with the original importation." ' There is now under serious consid eration and the scrutiny of constitu tional lawyers a new federal law framed on different lines and under the Interstate commerce act. As drawn by Assistant State's Attorney Clifford G. Roe, a member of the Woman's World committee, the bill Is as follows: "Be it enacted by the senate and house of representatives of the United States of America in congress as sembled, that whoever shall procure, entice or encourage any female per son to leave one of the states of the United States of America to go to any other state in the United States of America for the purpose of prosti tution, or to become an Inmate of a house of prostitution, or to enter any place where prostitution is practiced or allowed, or shall attempt to pro cure or entice any female person to leave one of the states of the United States of America to go Into any other state for the purpose of prosti tution or to enter any place where prostitution Is practiced or allowed, or shall receive or give, or agree to receive or give any money or thing of value for procuring or attempting to procure any female person to leave one of the states of the United States of America for the purpose of prostitution or to become an inmate of a house of prostitution, or to enter any place where prostitution Is prac ticed or allowed, shall, in every case, be deemed guilty of a felony and on conviction thereof be imprisoned not more than ten years and pay a fine of not more than $10,000." o NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION.
