C. H. WILLIAMS DRUGS POVERTY THE GREAT CAUSE ILLINOIS SENATE'S WHITE SLAVE PROBE COMMITTEE MAKES STARTLING REPORT. SPRINGFIELD, 111., Jan. 19.—Pov erty is the principal cause of immor ality, the minimum wage for girls and women is fixed at $8 a week, and unregulated conditions of domestic employment render the home, in many cases, a breeding place of commercial ized vice, according to the Illinois senate white slave investigation com mittee's report, made public tonight, when formally presented to the state senate. That poverty is the principal cause, direct or indirect, of immorality, is the most strongly emphasized finding of the commission. Thousands of girls, it says, are driven into prdhtitu tion because of the "sheer inability to keep body and soul together on the low wages paid them." The system of domestic employ ment in America is condemned in positive terms. "Unregulated condi tions of domestic employment, uncer tain hours, absence of definite social status and lack of creative opportuni ties render the home, in many cases, for the woman servants a breeding place of immorality,' says the com mission's report. j Investigations conducted by the committee, the report says, disclosed 1 the fact that more women qf the un derworld fal linto dishonor from do-| inestic employment than from any other work. "It is a peculiarly strong compliment | to the sensing faculty or the female." says the report, "and her intuitivo ] avoidance of sexual danger, that the occupation proved by actual statistics to be productive of most prostitution i is the oecupation she most shuns." j In thiR manner the committee ac- j counts for the constant unfilled de -1 mand for domestics. ' Eight dollars a week is fixed by j the committee aa the leant amount t that will meet the necessary demands, of a bare living for a girl employed in a larsre city The report says wages found to be dlscouragingly short were of this figure, Attention is called to testimony taken by the committee of wages running as low as $2 a week, of foremen who abuse girls in short dresses, shake them until the arms are blackened and occasionally hurl boxes at them, and of the manager who found Ills factory besieged with the agents of professional white slav ery. A condition which the report de clares strikes directly at the home, is found in what is termed the "call girl' 'system. On this subject the re port says, in part: "A detective told of a 'call list,' which he had seized In a raid. More than 20 names were on the list; first names only being given, then opposite the telephone numbers. He checked up the names and numbers. Some of the women were 'respectable' mar ried women. Two were young daugh ters; others were working girls. The case of a mother serving as 'call girl' | and using the money she made In buy | ing necessities for her baby is merely illustrative of tlie character of some I of the women in this system." High-class cafes are hard hit In the report. The conspicuous place of in toxicants in the undoing of many girls is dismissed as a matter of such gen eral knowledge as to require no elabo- j ration. The report says there can be no disagreement as to the effects on the young woman of the alternate drinking and dancing as practised in ! many fashionable restaurants. "The free and easy manner of intro ductions adds to the danger. Most of the girls who frequent the popular the restaurants given over to dancing are very young." The commission found that v..v,, highest standard of morals exists; among the girls in the high schools, colleges and universities of the state, Improvements in conditions were recommended by the commission. TO LINK POSSESSIONS TOGETHER BY CHAIN OF WIRELESS STATIONS approved a contract with the Federal WA SHINGTON, Jan. 19.—One of the final steps towards linking the United States aud its foreign posses sions togeiher by a great chain of wireless stations was taken today, when Secretary Daniels of the navy Telegraph company of San Francisco for the equipment of the big radio sta tions now under construction at San Diego, Cal., Cavite, Philippine Islands, and Pearl Harbor, Territory of Ha waii. Completion of these stations within the next year will pave the way for radio communication from Washiugtou, not only to the insular possessions, but to almost any point in the world, where there may he receiving plant. Plans are now being prepared by the navy department to Increase the power of the existing equipment at Tututla and Guam so as to make that a part of the world chain. The inter mediate stations at Boston, New Or leans, Point Loma, Chicago and Guan tanamo already have been strength ened and are able to relay messages from ships at sea to Washington via the Arlington, Va towers. BRYAN TO BE ON HIS TRAIL WILL FOLLOW AFTER PRESIDENT IN SWING AROUND CIRCLE AND PREACH PEACE. WASHINGTON, Jan. 19.—Reports were current about the capitol that former Secretary of State Bryan may follow after President Wilson on the latter's proposed speaking tour in behalf of national defense and speak in favor of universal peace. Representative Hailey of Pennsyl vania stated that he had a letter from Mr, Bryan, written at his winter home in Florida, in which the state ment is said to be made that Mr. Bryan is "willing to go any place at any time where he can be of service to the cause of peace." Nothing definite concerning Mr. Bryan's plans was known in Washing ton tonight, however, although it has 1 ecu stated authoritatively that he is watching the situation carefully, pre pared to take such action in opposi tion to the president's preparedness policy as lie may consider expedient and necessary. President Wilson's plan for going before the country on the national de fense Issue took defiinte shape to dnv ami the work if mapping out the itinerary of his first speaking trip was a ] most completed It was also de , lCjdpd tkat public business permits ot i, er tours will he made in as quick succession as possible. A revised outline of the first trip tw j av railed for visits to eight or nine j niirld'e western cities The president I probably will start west immediately altPr his visit to New York, January to deliver addresses before the | Railroad Business association and th Motion Picture Board of Trade. U probably will remain away from Was! ' i • | n.gton about a week. Messages inviting Air. Wilson to d"- I rerent parts of the country came in j large numbers to tho White House j during the day. He will be unable to, acrept all the invitations at once, be-1 cause the length of his stay away from I the capital necessarily is limited. j Reports that opponents of increased) military preparedness will speak the same territory as the president on the other side of tlie issue, it has 1 eeu made plain at the White House, will not lead to a change of plans.

Buy of Your Home Merchants GREEK KING IS INDIGNANT WANTS PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES TO KNOW OF HIGH HANDED ACTS OF ALLIES. ATHENS, Jan. 19.—(Via Paris, 3:45 p. m.)—King Constantine today sent for the Associated Press corre spondent In order to express through the newspapers of the United States, as lie said, his. profound indignation at what he termed "the unheard-of high-handedness of the recent action of the allies coward Greece." King Constantine was greatly moved as he recited, one after another, the long list of w-hat he called "the allies' j encroachments on the sovereignty of ■ _ . ... . .i ! Greece culminating in lie occupation, of Corfu and the blowing up o t e | bridge at Demlr Hissar. "It is the merest cant," said the king, "for Great Britain and France to talk about the violation of the neu trality of Belgium and Luxemburg after what they themselves have done and are doing here. I have tried in every way I know how to get fair play 'n tlie British and Freneli press and to obtain a fair hearing from the Brit ish and French public. No sooner had •lie British newspaper attacked Greece with the most anaaalag perversion of "act and misrepresentatioa of motives, than I called one of thair eorrepond ents and gave him, face to face, a full statement of Greece's position. I have given a most frank statement to the French press through one of the French newspapers which had been most bitterly attacking Greece. The only forum of public opinion open to me is that of the United States. The situation is far too vital for me to are a snao about royal dignity in the matter of interviews, when the very life of Greece as an independent coun try is at slake. I shall appeal to America aeain and again, if necessary, for that fair hearing which Is dented me hv the countries of the allies.

Russia, Austria and been blown up i at the enemy's approach. It Is admitted that there was no enemy anywhere near the bridge and no indication that any was coming. What reason was there, therefore, to blow up the bridge now, except to starve out the Greek troops around Eerres Dramma? Where is the neces sity for the occupation of Corfu? If .Greece is the ally of Serbia, so also j j tf qy alu i transportation of Serbs i ! ! Prussia and yet that has not made j any difference in their aetion. And what about the plea of military neces-; sity? Where is the military neces-' sitv of destroying tlie Demir Hissar i bridge, which cost a million and a half j draclirae and which was the only prac tlcalle route by which we can re vie J tual troops in Eastern Macedonia? j The bridge was mined, it could have j been blown up on a moment's uotic-q to Albania and Italy would be simpler than to Corfu. It is because Italians are refusing to aid Serbs, fearing a spread of cholera, that the allies think that the Greeks want to be endanger ed by cholera any more than the Italians? "They say they are occupying Cas teloriza, Carfu and other points in search for submarine basis. The Brit ish legation at Athens has a standing offer of 2,000 pounds sterling—a great ] f 0 rtune to any Greek fisherman—for Information leading to the detection of a submarine base, but has never yet received any news about a submarine base in Greece and never yet have any submarines been supplied from Greece. "The htstorv of the Balkan polities of the allies is a record of one gross They now deliberately throw away every advantage they ever had of Greek sympathy. At the beginning of the war 80 per cent of Greeks were favorable to the entente. Today not 40, no, not 20 per cent would turn their hand to aid the allies."

PARIS, Jan. 18.—(12 m., delayed.) — The highest French authority takes occasion because of the interview given by King Constantine to the As ociated Press, to define the principles according to which France has acted toward Greece and to give tlie As seriated Press certain facts concern r.g Greece's course toward the allies, "The interview given by King Con- , "tantine of Greece to the Associated : Press," said this personage, "recalls point by point observations which, , both in matter aud manner, show the groundlessness of his accusation against the allies. He reproaches the j allies with iivpocricy In talking of Ger- j many's violation of Belgium and Lux- ! emburg after what they have done in i Greece. But the allies talked of the violation before their action and for t.he excellent reason that Germany violated the neutrality of Belgium and ; Luxemburg without excuse or provo cation and In the midst of peace, whereas what passed in Greece in-j dependently of other considerations , mentioned further on, is the conse- i mence of a long war occasioned by the ruin of a people by Germany. "The king declares the allies have occupied Greek territories without his , permission. There is no question of ; an occupation, properly speaking, but) of a temporary use of certain portions.' Vs regards the islands referred to, the entente powers made use of them J provisionally because Turkey had al- j ways refused to recognize Greek pos-' session of them, a use made with the ! tacit consent of Greece, which only j protested for form's sake, while ne-: gotiating on the subject with the al lies, making certain stipulations for the utilization of the islands and re ceiving in exchange formal promises j as to their purely temporary use, as to compensation for all possible damages and even other promises not uncon nected with the Greek foreign policy, j The allies were everywhere receivd i by the population with the greatest cor- i diallty and were found by them to be j a source of profit, besides being pro visioned by them. ! "As to Saloniki the case is still far otherwise titan King __________ ...... _____„ Constantine : avers. The allies only went to Salon- j iki in order to succor Serbia, Greece's! ally and as an answer to the mobili-' zation by Serbia's traditional enemy,! Bulgaria. Serbia, attacked on two sides, was not in a position to obtain from the Greeks the 150,000 men stip ulated for in the treaty of alliance. It was to replace these men that the allies went to Saloniki at the request of the Greek government which oth erwise refused to mobilize. "The arrival of the Franco-Britisli forces at Saloniki has drawn forth only a purely formal protest and the Greek military authorities have re ceived orders to give them every fa cility. "The analogy between the military necessities which called the allies to Saloniki to help Greece's ally, Serbia, and those claimed by Germany for the violation of Belgium, simply does not exist. Tlie Greek people have re ceived the allies cordially. The Greek govemment, even before the arrival c ... .... , . of the allies already had shown favor to the Serbians by granting them con-1 siderable facilities for the transport; of their armament as well as provis-j ions.
