Recent and persistent press dispatches indicate that
the empire is in a bad way. Rent and torn by the strife
she herself precipitated, she now would be only too glad
to make peace on any terms that would leave her ever

Very Unfair Indeed.
Agent Clabaugh, of the department
of justice, who has done signal work
in the white slave blackmail cases,
said in Chicago the other day:
"The Mann act lends itself too eas
