Negro Prize Fighter Is Con
victed of Violating Mann
Act «in Bringing Belle
Schreiber to Chicago
(Special DJepateh to The Oil) .
CHICAGO, May 13.—"Jack" Johneon,
, - ■• - .
the negro pugilist, was found guilty
shortly before midnight by a federal
jury in f Judge Carpenters court. At-
I torney Bachracli, for Johnson, filed;
notice of appeal and | Johnson was re
leased on bond of $10,000. He was ac
cused of violating the Mann law in
transporting Belle Schreiber from
Pittsburg to Chicago in 1910 and was
convicted |on all 2 seven counts in the
The jury returned ' its verdict after
an hour's consideration.
The maximum penalty under the
finding is five years' imprisonment or
$10,000 fine, or both. -. .;;: ; -
, Johnson was charged with having
furnished Miss S<'hreiber|withl|7s|wltJij
which to I come from Pittsburg to Chi
cago. Miss Schreiber testified that on
her arrival here Johnson V furnished }a]
flat, which she said had been devoted
,to immoral purposes. She also de
scribed trips around the country which
she said she had made with ; the prize
fighter and at his expense. •
This was in 1910, just, before the
marriage of Johnson to Etta Duryea,
the divorced wife of an eastern horse
man. She commuted suicide by shoot
ling herself eight months ago, leaving
[ letters to her mother indicating she
had brooded over her own downfall and
Johnson's neglect.
Two months later Johnson was ar
rested by Chicago police on the charge
of abducting Lucile Cameron, the 18
year old daughter of Mrs. Cameron-
Falconet of Minneapolis.. Minn.
Miss Cameron had been 'employed as
cashier in Johnson's restaurant. These
charges were dropped | and Johnson and
the Cameron girl were married. : ' ,". .-
It was during the police investiga
tion of Johnson's affair with the Min
neapolis girl that facts were unearthed
which resulted in the prize fighter's
'Indictment by a federal > grand jury in
connection with Miss Schreiber.
Four ballots were taken by the jury
tonight, the ; first /showing four jurors
1 for acquittal and eight for conviction.
James Bruce, a grain dealer of Mar
seilles, 111., was J foreman of the jury.
Two counts ;of the indictment were
dismissed yesterday at the "a request of I
; Judge Carpenter, i who ; declared that no
good ; purpose could be served by air
ing unnecessary details of the relations
of Johnson and the woman. ,', i
Ladle Cameron Johnson, his .present
wife, did not appear in the courtroom at
the trial, his attorneys fearing the ef
fect of J her j presence. Mrs. Tiny John
son, the negro's v mother, however, sat
constantly at his side. Only a few per
sons * were in . court when the verdict
was reached, as Judge Carpenter had
ordered that i "scandal fans" "be barred
from the hearings. , , • . . t ... .
The suggestion of Johnson's, "golden
smile," which had been on hie lips dur
ing the time of the jury's deliberations,
faded when the clerk pronounced the
word "guilty." --■ . ':*V^-.«
If? Johnson sat solemnly in his seat ; un
til Attorney Parkin's motion that the
fighter be taken into custody wan de
nied, when he I slipped t quietly from his
chair and made his j way ■ from the court
room alone. " '•
"I haven't a thing to say," he said.
"My attorney will speak for me.' '

What One Great Manufacturing Company
Has Done in This Direction
fff^^^Tliej betterment of 1 the conditions surrounding industrial work
- ers is a subject in which very many are interested at present. Many.
are engaged in welfare work from philanthropic and sociological
motives, but they are not all. It may not be so widely known, but it <-A
isneverthsless true, that the great business corporations of the coun
try i are giving much thought to the welfare of i their employes, > and >-j j
* expending large sums; annually in developing plans which are result-uo .
. ing in » added i health, happiness, comfort and > contentment. * Whole- ;; *
some, sanitary, comfortable surroundings outside of working hours :
,::,- * certainly tend to greater efficiency during working hours, and an in- .
: crease in one's measure of contentment is followed naturally by
higher civic ideals and improved standards.
«j: That this is recognized by the country's captains of industry, as -
; . well; as by those devoted to philanthropic work, is being demon- , ,-?
- strated in many instances. One of \ the best illustrations is given
; right in Lawrence, Mass., by the American Woolen Company. , - The.. ;'
president of the company, Mr. William M. Wood, from the beginning t
'-s of the envelopment of the big organization of which he is the head ■
and the construction of j the ; newer ; mills at Lawrence, has had in i,
mind constantly the welfare of the thousands. of men and women
who are the backbone of the textile industry in that city. : ?

a cost as low as 3 cents each for individual dishes. It can be as

-' Rut it is the housing of the workers in which President Wood ]
. vtakes especial pride. In this particular Lawrence ; today stands in • j
.', the lead as a mill center, it is believed, owing to the many convenient '■".. .'■!
apartment houses and attractive cottages 1 ; put up by the • American'T
i , ,Woolen ; Company. The group of houses for the Wood mill operatives |
are ■ three stories in height, each standing by itself,- with light ■on • all -.: !
;" sides," and all opening into a semi-circular court. There is no crowd-.
>« Ing, no unpleasant outlook. Each of the 78 apartments has from five j
to seven rooms and a bathroom, and the rent is from , $2.15; to $3.15* a
. week. ; Shrubbery and wrought iron fencing add to the attractiveness ? *
! of the colony. With the new Ayer mill, another group of houses be- \ \
•;■:■■ came i necessary, and the company acquired a large tract of land !es--*-^
pecially for the purpose. Fifty additional cottages were at once
t erected, ; and plans _| are under way J for several . times as ; many • more.
■■; These cottages have all modern conveniences, and rent for $4.15 per
'■ >v. •week, which sum is about one-half the rental obtained for similar r
cottages elsewhere in the city. It will be only a few years until this •
■ section of Lawrence » will be extensively developed and as attractive
' as any community in the city. , Such things as ihese should not ,be j
' ■: : lost sight of in judging the Lawrence situation justly. - The develop
ment of Lawrence has been more rapid than that of any other Massa
chusetts city—a result in large measure attributed to the wonderful ;
growth of the 4 textile industry there since the organization of the :
American Woolen Company.
