WHITE SLAVERY AS
SEEN BY MRS BURG
Hundreds of Girls Arc Daily Led Astray and Held in Places of Vico
and Shame117 Girls Shipped in a Month to a South
American City for Immoral Purposes
With the declaration that an aver
age of one hundred girls a day enter
unwillingly a life of shame in the
United States Mrs Virginia Lee
Brandt Burg in her address on Whlto
Slavo Traffic at tho Tabernacle last
night before a small but appreciative
audience read some very startling
figures which had been taken from I
statistics prepared by government in
spectore The address delivered iu
an eloquent and able manner gave
proof that the speaker hail given much
study lo tho work as National Worker
for tho Crlttonton Rescue homos as
well ao in the Interests of the crusade
against tho white slave traffic which I
the United States Government has re
ceiitly taken up
After a short Introductory address
by Rev McCreery of tho Methodist
church Mrs Burg prefaced her re
marks with the statement that no ono
wants to believe that white slave traf
fic exists and most people think those
who have talked upon the matter here
tofore were drawing upon their Imagi
nation to a great extent But when
time actual statistics are presented by
n government with officer Investiga
ting conditions people then begin to
believe that there must bo something
to tho statement that white girls arc
being Bold into a life of shamo
Mothers of England Weep
England the speaker stated first
learned of the trafficking In white
girls after William T Stead had writ
ten several articles and presented sta
tistics us well as the names of girls I
who had fallen and their procurers
Then a number of the British cabinet
slated that the disclosure caused the
motherhood of England to shed more
tears than ever before Mrs Bur
then briefly referred to what tho Eng
lish government is doing as well as
the United States Government to ex
terminate the while elayo traffic
Two hundred and thirty thousand
girls err in America every year and
of this number fortysix thousand are
seduced or deceived It is almost ono
hundred girls a day that enter the life
unwillingly Thus spoke Mrs Burg
as sho read from statistics furnished
I
by tIme government and continuing
she said
It means that one hundred ot our
American girls are Bucrlllccd dally
upon the altar of vice These girls
are sold from 23 to 100 by those who
act as procurers
Girls Shipped Away
An incident of the sending of 117
girls In Buenos Ayres Argentino Re
public South America In twenty nlnc
days over half of whom were Amer
Ican girls was given as an example
by tho speaker of how the girls arc
disposed of by tho agents who secure
them In Europe as well as America
deceiving them under tho promise that
they will be given employment at
high wages if they will leave their
homes
A method employed by the traffick
ers In the United States is that of
advertisements
alluring newspaper
which offer special Inducements to
girls to como to the city and accept
positions as stenographers or learn
dressmaking In this connection a
number of Incidents were recited One
case Ir particular a during the
Worlds Fair at SL Louis in 1904
when six hundred girls from Europe
wero brought to America but were
saved In time from leading the life
of debauchery and shame through tho
eforts of Adolph Busch the SL Louis
millionaire brewer and Miss Helen
Gould of New York
Girls Driven to Shame
The speaker then referred to the
pin money girls whom she termed
the girls who though they have homes
and everything they wish accept po
sitions in stores and elsewhere to get
spending money and thus keep tho
girls who arc in need of the position
from getting them Sho also referred
to the girls who work and toil in
scores and factories for about 4 a
week and who aro expected to clothe
and support themselves upon this
amount In this connection Mrs Burg
told of her experience In working in
i large department store of Chicago
to study the question She made the
statement that it was surprising to
know how many of ho girls lead a
life of shame in order to secure enough
money on which to live and dress
The girls who work In the department
store at 3I n week the speaker termed
starvation waso girls Although
the pries of goods and living are
high their wages never increase
A solution of tho question of saving
girls from sin the speaker announced
us advanced by Miss Helen Gould was
tho paying of girls oetter than star
vation wages
ston
The liquor traffic is the cause of two
million lquor not working and their
wives and daughters are compelled to
work to support tho family Tho
girls with tho pale and haggard looks
wJh
worn ali pinched faces tho speaker
or wore found In sweatshops and
ctorlcl in almost any community of
the South and the East Mrs Burg
said that whenever she saw those poor
girls she thanked God that they will
die some time and escape their per
petual suffering
Liquor Is a Factor
America the speaker said la not
tho land of the free or the home of
the brave where all men arc born free
and equal I it were wo would not
hnvo white slavery such a exists in
factories America knocked out black
slavery years ago but has not yet
Knockba out white slavery which is
million times blacker than that
ono miion tmes
I of block slavery
In closing Mr Burg spoke of the
uncharitableness of Christian women
When they do Ihcir shopping in a
store a few kind words from them
would do much to brighten tho lives
or the girls who stand all day behind
the counters and at night art so tired
I end worn that It Is little wonder that
they are ready to do something des
=
perate The uncharitableness ot
Christian women has damned many
girlsLadies
rsLadies
Ladies when you meet the work
ing girl In any establishment be kind
to her and God will reward you
Drink the speaker said was the
cause of as many downfalls among
glue as many men under the Influ
ence of liquor are demons who other
wise in their sober minds are honor
able and worthy
As a parting vord Mr Burg said
that parents ohould teach their chil
dren physiology nnd the problems of
life and not let them grow up In Ig
norance to find out conditions them
selves Briefly reviewing the subjects

cluded nnd received generous ap I
