WHITE SLAVERY AND "RESTRICTED" DISTRICTS.
ANEW YORK dispatch says that 300 women and girls have
disappeared in that city in the last three months. Many
of them?probably the most of them?have been swallowed
up in the white slave traffic and have found their way to the so
called "restricted" districts of the different cities of the land.
This is the side of the "restricted" district plan of handling the
social evil problem, a problem that has confronted civilization
?from its dawn, that is the most baleful. The setting apart of a
"district" within a city, with the understanding that within its 1
precincts vice may reign, makes a mockery of law and provides
an example of inconsistency and depravity that has anything but
a beneficial effect?particularly upon the youth. But by far the
worst feature of the "restricted" districts is that they provide
market places for the prey of white slave fiends. They make
it possible for men to commercialize the ruining of girls. The
temptations that confront girls who go from the farms and out1
of the way places to the large cities are great enough under any
circumstance. They are increased a thousand-fold when a prize
is offered which makes their destruction a profitable business.
Evil practices of no sort can be eliminated by crime-making
statutes nor by police regulation. However, we can at least put
the professional procurer out of business, and the first step in
that direction must be the destruction of his public market places,
the so-called "restricted" districts.
We cannot stop individuals from committing crime by mak
ing statutes nor by police action, but we can uproot organized I
crime. We cannot make everybody be good, but we can destroy
the white slave traffic.
After all it is not surprising that Taft should be doubtful
about the wisdom of having too much democracy in govern
ment. Think what the people did to him!
POPULIST PARTY AND HISTORY.
AX EASTERN magazine writer discussing socialism in the
United States refers to it as the "second growth of the
Populistic movement that reached full tide in the middle
nineties." History will hardly justify that conclusion. While
there were socialists in the People's or "Populist" party, and
the average platform of that party contained planks
that might appropriately be termed "socialistic," the
strongest force in the party was its democracy. The People's
party, which went out of existence as far as all practical pur
poses are concerned when the Democrats nominated Bryan for
President, will probably live in history more because of the "in
itiative and referendum," which is now accepted by all political
parties and is a part in the fundamental law in many States,
than anything else?unless it be in the fact that it ceased to ex
ist the moment that the masses secured control of the Demo
cratic party. The "initiative and refendum" are purely demo
cratic measures. They bring government closer to the people.
They make it possible for the people to control public affairs.
And that is the essence of Democracy.
It has been said that nothing is so safe or so futile as to
predict what historians of the future will say of the present.
However, sufficient time has elapsed to give us fair perspective
in discussing the People's party, which cast more than 1,000,000
votes and chose 22 electors in six states for James B. Weaver in
1892 at a time when the voting population of the Nation was
only about two-thirds of that of the present time?and that was
nearly four years before the party had reached its zenith.
The record of the party and its disappearance at the mo
ment that the Democratic party accepted the leadership of Bry
an and began a career in keeping with its name clearly gives it
title to the credit of being the forerunner of the "back to the
people" movement, which has characterized the last decade, rath
er than the apostle of socialism. Nearly all of the controlling
leaders of the Populist party of the early nineties later affiliated
with the Democratic party where most of them who are now
living still retain their political homes. James B. Weaver served
in Congress as a Democrat after the disappearance of the Peo
ple's party. Senator Allen, of Nebraska; Senator Harris, of
Kansas; Senator Patterson, of Colorado; Senator Heitfield, of
Idaho; Gov. Rogers, of Washington, and many others who came
into note as Populist officials afterward held office as Demo
crats or they have been prominent in the party's councils. Sen
ator Gore, of Oklahoma; Gov. Lister, of Washington; Mayor
Cotterill, of Seattle, and others who were prominent young men
of the Populist party two decades ago now hold high offices as
The American army and navy have lost more men in air
ships than have been killed in the wars of the last two score
