LOSS OF OEOFOOF SH, 090 1 FUR Closing of Redlight District Means Substantial Cut in City's Income. Taxpayers of Butte must pay $25,- !; 000 per year more taxes than at pres- i ent owing to the closing of the Butte redlight district, according to City Treasurer Neal A. Ward, who spent the morning figuring out how Butte is going to "get off" "Fach inmate of the redlight dis trict paid a fine of $10 per month," said the city treasurer. ''This amounted to about $25,000 per year. With this income eliminated, it will mean funds must come from some other source." Butte's redlight district is now first cousin to the city's graveyards, as far as activities are concerned during the past 48 hours. There is not a woman remaining in the district that was once the liveliest section of the city. One woman was fined $10 in police court this morning for transferring her place of business to a downtown room ing house. Mayor Lane said this morning he intends to transfer the redlight policemen to the uptown sec tions and that all women, known to have been Inmates of the twilight zone, will he arrested, when caught plying their trade in the business dis trict.

LAWSON SAYS HENRY TOED HIM ABOUT THE LEAK (Continued from Page One ) Harvey Fiske & Sons, The senator. Laws known to him only as O.* A Go-Between. Asked by Representative Henry whom he meant when lie said ho w'ould give the name of a go-between v received a large sum of "his bit," Law son said he referred to the name gh him by Miss Visconti as "Secretary Tumulty." The Public Man. Lawson also declared that the firm of C. D. Barney and company of \V street, Malcolm McAdoo, brother of Secretary McAdoo. and Stewart Gibeney of New' York knew of the leak, and that a public man who knew the "leak machinery" was Paul M Warburg of the federal reserve hoard. Dragging Names in. awson indirectly brought t lie names of Secretary Lansing and Am bassador Bernstorff into the hearing, hut not in connection with the leak When Henry charged him with drag ging in the name of Lansing. Lawson dignantly replied: "T have hold the names ..f Lansing and the German ambassador out of this." Lawson also said Representative Henry told him of rumors that Barney Baruch was connected w ith the "leak. Lawson Suggestions. suggested calling Lawson Rathom, editor of the Providence Jour nal, in connection with an article leaks." which appeared in his paper, and also the editor of the Boston Transcript, which lie said had made a "flat-looted" statement that a cer tain brokerage firm had dealt in 800, 000 shares of Steel on Dec. 20, which netted a profit of $8.000,000. Didn't Think it True. Lawson further said Henry had told him information had come to the com mittee that the German ambassade had profited over $2,000,000, but that he did not think it was true. In a long description of his visit Chairman Henry. 1 .awson said that Henry had told him of rumors th Secretary Lansing had gone to tho Biltmore hotel in New York to me Barney Baruch four times, but that he. Henry, thought his visits were per fectly legitimate ''I told Henry," said Lawson, "that 1 w'ould stake my head on it that Sec retary Lansing was not telling any thing he ought not to do." Lawson declared that Henry had asked him l.ate in December to sa> nothing more about the "leak" charges on patriotic grounds, saying he it to the country not to mention them further for the present "At no time," Lawson insisted, "did he ever say that he had any direct nrmation relating to a 'leak.' " Henry on Stand. Ghairman Henry then took the wit ness stand Henry emphatically denied that lie ever had mentioned to Lawson name of any cabinet officer. "Not during our whole three hours conference did I mention to Mr. Law son the name of any cabinet officer that he has mentioned here today." Henry asserted again and again that he had not given Lawson such information. Turning to Uwson, Henry repeated he had told hiio nothing. Lawson did not reply, but shook his head as if to say that he stood by his statement. Henry also declared he never had mentioned the name of a member of congress or a banker to Lawson as having been involved in the "leak." This made his denial of Lawson's testimony complete. When Henry had concluded his tes timony, Lawson rose and dramatically asserted that every word he. Lawson, had uttered today was the "truth, so help me God, without variation." Two resolutions to strengthen the power of the rules committee to com pel witnesses to answer questions were presented by Representative Garrett, a member of the committee, and were adopted soon after the house met to day. One of them was general in character but the other would com pel Lawson to give names specifically. Representative Campbell, republic* an, today introduced & resolution for a committee of five to deal with the "leak" situation.

Jan. 15.- Practical con firmation of Ambassador Francis' statement at Petrograd that the closer commercial relations with Russia can hardly be brought about it the "prin iples or resolution of the economic onference of the allies last June are confirmed and carried out," was given at the state department today with the statement that an inquiry "probably ould not" be sent to the ambassador about his remarks. in two recent cases—Ambassador Gerard's speech in Berlin and Minis ter Van Dyke's statement at The Ilaguo—the department made In quiries.

COMMERCIALIZED VICE NOT ALONE COM BY ACT (Continued from Page One.) sider M< Reynolds took no part in ation of the cases. "The plain terms of the case must take precedence over the report that companied it to congress." said stlce Day. It is said it will open the door to blackmail, but that is to he considered by congress. We think the power of congress to regulate transportation of passengers affords ample basis to exercise authority in the case of this statute." Justice Day's majority opinion said: "In none of the cases was it charged • proved that the transportation (of the women involved) was for gain. i There is no ambiguity in the terms ! the act. It Is elementary that the meaning of a statute must in the first ' instance he sought in the language of i the act as framed and if that is plain the sole function of the courts is to ! nforce it according to its terms. "To cause a woman to be transport- | ed for debauchery or for an immoral 1 purpose, for which Diggs and Caml netti were convicted, would seem by the very statement of the facts to em brace transportation for purposes de nounced by the act. While such im moral purpose would he more culpable als if accompanied with expec tation of gain, such considerations do not prevent the lesser offense against morals from the execution of purposes within the meaning of the law. To say to the contrary would shock the common understanding of what con stitutes an immoral purpose." Whether the women involved be *onie accomplices, argued In behalf of the three defendants, was not di rectly decided by the court. It dis posed of that feature as follows: ■ It is urged as a further ground for reversal of the judgments below that the trial court did not instruct tho jury that the testimony of the two girls was that of accomplices and to be received with great caution and believed only when corroborated by other testimonies in the case. "While tills is so, there is no abso lute rule of law preventing convic tions on the testimony of accomplices if Jurors believe them.'* In conclusion the court says: "Much Is said about the character of the test adduced and ns to certain facts tending to establish tlie guilt or Innocence of the accused. This court does not weigh the evidence in a pro ceeding of this character and it is enough to say that there was sub stantial testimony tending to support I NO PAIN—NO HIGH PRICES vice you ha va In purchasing ' STERLING" DENTISTRY everything is in your favor.
