Concerns Only the White
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14-Argument
over whether the Mann white slave act
u i iiii-i in iiorsouai unmoral ese.iii.-niea or
only to cases involving transportation of
women for commercial gain began yester-
oay nctore the supreme court
i ne law itseli has been upheld by the
court, but the question of interpretation
is raised for the first time in appeals of
F. Drew Caminetti and Maury 1. Diggs of
Sacramento and L. T. Hays of Alva, Okla.,
all charged- with transmuting women in
violation ot the law, but with the elements
of commercialism and coercion :ibfnf
! The present administration of the de
partment ot justice has brought prosecu
itiona in all eases of transportation of wo
jmen for immoral purposes, whether for
1 commercial purposes or not.
I Hairy O. Glasser of counsel for the ap
ipeliants insisted that the title of the white
jslave act itself indicated absence of intent
by congress to have- the law applied to
cases of "mere immorality." He asserted
that a fair interpretation of the act was
that it was intended solely to stamp out
organized or unorganized traffic in women
for immoral purposes by prohibiting their
Citing decisions cf the second, seventh
and ninth federal circuit courts, sustaining
the interpretatfon given by the depart
ment of justice, Assistant Attorney-General
Wallace argued that congress had
the power to prevent immorality by bar
ring transpoitation of women for-immoral
purposes, and that the Mann act should be
so construed. The extent or decree of im
morality should not be a factor, said Mr.
Ho referred to the case of Jack John
son, the Negro pugilist, in which the de
partment's interpretation had lreen sus
tained, though admitting that judges of
lower federal courts had differed regard

minister of militia and defense. His res
ignation was requested.
The break between Gen. Hughes and
Premier Borden and other members of
the Canadian government resulted from
differences over questions of policy and
details of administration. Since the be
ginning of the war there have been many
such differences on questions of military
management, but until recently, it is aid,
they have been adjusted generally by al
lowing Gen. Hughes to tarry out his plans,
lately the friction has increased and ad
justments have grown more difficult, it
is understood the premier and the cabinet
have been growing more di.spof.ed to in
sist upon their own plans as against those
of Gen. Hughes.
One of the points over which a differ
ence arose was the supplying of the Cana
dian forces with the Brush army lille.
Gen. Hughes, in is reported, advocated in
stead the use of a Canadian weapon.
Some time ago Gen. Hughes returned
from a three-months' visit to England
with a plan to have a. Canadian war coun
cil organized in England with a deputy
minister of militia at- its head: The Ca
nadian government, however, held that
with more than 200,000 Canadian troops
in the tienehes in France or in training in
England there should be an over-seas min
ister of militia. Gen. Hughes opposed this
as it would greatly deprive him of author
ity. When the government insisted upon its
plan, it is reported. Gen. Hughes suggest
ed that Sir Max Aitken should be appoint
ed to the new post. Premier Borden,
however, appointed Sir Geoige Perk-y, al
though there is said to have been lack of
harmony between him and Gen. Hughes,
i This took from Gen. Hugh.es control of
a large part of the Canadian forces,
j While he was in England Gen. Hughc
after investigating the Canadian army
medical force relieved Gen. Guy Carletin
Jones of the command. The government
replaced Gen. Jones.
Criticism by Gen. Hughes of action tak
en by British authorities both in icgard
to the handling of Canadian army sunphes
and of the Canadian forces, it is said, has
I teen resented.
It has been stated that there was a lack
of cordiality lietween (Jen. Hushes and
the Duke of Connauobt. who has hist left
Canada after five years' service as novern it-
general. The accumulation of difference.
has led to the breach which has come.

TEN BUILDINGS BURNED.
Zotlxi Carclass Smoker Believed to
Have Caused Fire in Williston.
WILLIKTON, Nov. 14. Ten build
ings on the arm of Henry 8. Brothers
were destroyed by fire Saturday after
noon at a loss estimated at about $12,
000. Neither Mr. Brothers nor his wife
was at home, the former being on his
return from Essex Junction and Mrs.
Brothers being in Burlington to meet
her parents, who were coming to visit
her. She arrived at G o'clock to find
their home in ruins.
The fire was discovered by a farm
hand and help was soon at hand. The
Burlington department was appealed to,
nine men racing out here with the fire
truck. They succeeded in saving most
of tho household furniture and sixty
head of cattle were saved. One hundred
tons of hay, 000 bushels of potatoes
and $700 worth of beans were de
stroyed, together with all the farm ma
chinery and tools.
The fire is thought to have been
started by some one smoking in a barn.
The buildings were all consumed be
cause of the lack of water protection.
The place, formerly known as the
Douglas farm, is just over the South
Burlington line. It has been owned by
Mr. Brothers about eight years. The
loss is partially covered by insurance.
