The number of killed is upward of 300, while $5,000,000 worth of property was wiped out of exist ence. THEufrequenth OFcourse following the Ti tanic disaster, there was a great splurge made, both in this country and in Great Britain, over the lax manner in which the great ocean pas senger vessels were provided with life saving appliances, and we believe there were certain orders promulgated from both countries as to the number of life-boats, etc., that should tie pro vided for each vessel. Notwithstand ing all this, now a little more than a year later, comes the startling declar ation that the Volturno, which a few weeks ago went to the bottom with some hundreds of its passengers and cre.v, was no better supplied with life boats than the Titanic indeed, she seems hardly to have been so well pro vided, a several suits have been tiled against her owners. The claiin is made that both the boats and the life-preservers were rotten and entirely urjfit and unsafe for use and also that i.he officers and many of the crew of the Volturno were in a state of beastly intoxication. TN the nation-wide fight that is being waged these days for social purity there is every once in awhile a sug gestion along that line that is both unique and uhusual—and sometimes valuable and their number often makes it difficult for one to know just where he's at. While none of us|want to miss a whack at degenerate man hood, and heartily welcome a~uy meth od of procedure that promises good results, we cannot but feel that the suggestion of "Lady Cook," or Ten nessee Clatlin—"Tenny," as she was known away back almost as far as the memory of man runneth—is a little strenuous and not likely to meet with favor among those whom it will most affect. Lady Cook takes the ground that the blame for the thing so many good people are fighting lies with the ruen alone, and her remedy, if assidu ously applied, is bound to cause a vast at on a a a Mrs. Lady Cook would brand with a red-hot iron every impure man on earth, and while she does not say right out how or where she would ap ply the "mark," we are guessing that it would be of such a nature and ap plied in such a part of the male anat omy as to at once render him non com pos mentis—or, in pure and compre hensive English, not worth a tinker's dam thereafter. But if such a remedy is necessary, let the good work pro ceed at once, for there is an all fired lot of it to do. But how Tenny must have changed since the days when she was best known in the United States, for at that time, if our memory is not play ing us tricks, she at least did not look with disfavor upon "free love." A FTER ALL, "policy" appears to! be the dominant motive of most human action, but it is not supposed to hav« a questionable place with those whose aims in life professedly are to see that all are treated rightly and receive their just dues and never should "policy", in that sense, actu ate the work of the great reform asso ciations of the country. Apropos, we note that Alfred W. McCann, a food expert, while addressingthe New York State Federation of Woman's Clubs the other day, and arraigning "dis eased meat, varnished ice cream, and other impure food products," was quietly admonished by a member of the club to "go easy on the meat ques tion, as sums of money to assist the convention arnangements had been given by the local packers." Now, "what do you know about that!" And if we cannot depend upon the women for reform action, in heaven's name where shall we look? MRS. elopement young re a a forced to the move because of opposi tion, wise or otherwise, to their union in a rational way at home and among friends, is excusable when viewed in the light of the action of a Minneapo lis couple, each 70 years of age, who recently "ran away" to get married. Tho poor innocents! they should both have been soundly spanked and sent to bed without their supper. MARY E. PEETS, of Chi cago, speaking before the World's Pur.ity Congress, in Minneapolis, said that "Eugenics is a cure for colic." Mary doesn't suy what the dose is or when the remedy should be given, but we presume that a teaspoonful three times a day, or as often as the pains occur, would be about the right thiug. Funny how we're all the time finding new remedies for old ailments. Now that this new nostrum has been an nounced, the old way of taking Johnny by the heels with his head downward and giving him a good shading, or throwing into him a pint of strong pepperatint ten, will be an unnecessary procedure just give him two or three doses of Eugenics and lie will soon be as chipper as ever. Viva Mary! THERE the action was "legal," or would not have been taken, but we figure it a might,y poor brand of re ligion that will impel one christian or ganization to forcibly eject from is home the pastor of another church or ganization. But that very thing was done in Chicago the other day when Dr. Wheaton, pastor of Marie Church, and his family and all their household goods were pitched into the street, by order of Trinity Church, who state as reason for this drastic action that the land on which Marie church and par sonage stand is theirs and they wan ted it. is one class of criminals that deserve punishment but a tri fle less severe than the outright mur derer, and that is the wife-beaters And although it is causing a howl in some quarters as being "inhuman," they are applying it good and proper in the State of Maryland. The man who will beat up tho woman whom ha has taken from her home and friend-s and solemnly vowed to cherish and pro tect as long as he lives, is the lowest down measly skunk that clutters the earth, and twenty, thirty, or forty or any number short of a death (.lose blows from a strong arm with a isat 'o nine tails on his bare back, and then banishment forever from human soci ety, is about his size. Yes, the whip pin post still has its uses. T^HE Darwinian theory that every last one of us poor mortals orig inally came from some monkey, will find additional favor from the fact that one Dr. Furn^ss, Wallingford, Conn., owned a monkey (recently de ceased), that could talk. That is, it could say simple words, such as "ma ma," "papa," etc., with an appar ent understanding of their meaning, and with-a distinctness of pronuncia tion equal to that of an ordinary hu man of the same age. Well, we have seen monkeys that knew more in a minute than whole rafts of dirty little brats that wear clothes (some times) and are supposed to belong to the su perior race. The monkey theory is not so hard to-believe. TN this column of last week's issue of The Pioneer, we mentioned the fact that Dr. Shastri, an India delegate to the World's Purity Congress, had been hauled over the coals, so to speak, for derogatory remarks con cerning missionary effort in India. But the doctor was not without backing in the charges or statements he made, for Mr. Bejoy Kumer Roy, a native Indiaman, a student in the Stanford University, California, goes the doc tor several better than we quoted by saving that "India wants missionaries but not missionaries with a bible in one pocket and opium in the other pockei" to convert the heathen natives of that country. TN spite of the slight kick that was put up by one of its members, the House of Representatives finally uni ted in a gift to Miss Jessie Wilson, on the occasion of her marriage, which occurs next Thursday, and it has been purchased and is now awaiting the happy day. It is a diamond necklace and pendant and cost $2,000. The gift of the Senate is to be a solid silver tea set. After all, since a White House wedding is such an unusual affair there having been but twelve prior to this one in the country's history*-the public can hardly, with propriety, charge up this action of congress to "playing politics." THE REASON. The hen stood on the river's brink And gave her college cry. Until a frog, in pained surprise. Politely aHked her why. She said, "Kind sir, you see thut.duuk Out there upon the water? Well, that's a winning college crew. And I'm her Alma Mater." —Cornell Widow. Rooms for light house-keeping Inquire at Pioneer Office. FIENDISH DEVICES OF WHITE SLAVERS Methods Employed by White Slavers to Replenish Their Ranks. I That young girls and women need to be constantly on the alert to the devic es of agents of the white slave traffic, has been brought to our attention in two marked instances recently. A mother and young lady daughter went from Jersey City to New York City on a shopping tour. To econo mize time they seeparated, each to do some errands down town, agreeing to meet in an hour and a half in Macys' parlor. The daughter finished her er rands first, and having time to spare, was looking into the window of a store near by. As the crowd gathered around her, she felt a sharp pin prick in her arm, but paid no attention to it except to rub the spot. She then went to Macys', as agreed, to wait for her mother, but as soon as she had taken her seat, fell to the floor in a swoon. The matron was called, and the doc tor of the establishment summoned. After looking at the girl he said, "Oh, it's only a case of drunk. We will take her to a window, and the air will help to revive her." At this juncture, a well dressed man came hurrying up, as though looking for some one, and seeing the uncon scious girl lying there, said to the matron, "This is my wife she ha these drinking spells occasionally, have a carriage at the door and will take her home." Providentially, the mother, who had beim searching for her daughter, pushed her svay through the group, and, seeing the tnan about to take her away, she sprang forward, saying, "This is my daughter. What are you doingV". In the excitement of the mo ment the man fled, and could not be found. 'J'ho" other instance is of a young woman living in Newark, New Jersey, who went to New York City recently, and after attending to iter business, stepped into a moving picture place in the shopping center. After a few mo ments, the girl felt a sharp pin-prick in the side of her neck. She looked around and saw a man and woman of ordinary appearance sitting behind her, but they seemed intent upon the pi re be in it S dizzy, so made her way out of the place and seeing a policeman near by, went to and asked him to-tak care of her. She was tak?n to the sta tion house by the officer, and the ser geant in charge, as soon as she was brought before him, recognized the symptons, saying, "It is another of those knock-out cases." In both instances these girls had been punctured with a hypodermic needle containing some strong opiate, and had not Providence mercifully in terposed, both, without doubt, would have beon counted among the numer ous cases of young women who mys teriously disappear, and are forced into slavery as inmates of houses of prostitution.—Union Signal.
