Litigation Stnrt.i In 41t Cornt.
The suit was first instituted in the
41 "t district court against the rail
road company by H R and Charles
St. vens. W. W. Mills and the. Hague
heirs about two years ago.
Mr. Mills and his wife were the own
ers of a portion of the property in
volved m the suit, and J. P. Hague
was the owner of another portion. Z.
T. White and the Stevens were the
assignees of the original grantors.
The claim of the plaintiff was that
the defendant company had only been
granted an easement in the property,
ttaa.: easement comprising the right to
use Che property for railroad purposes
and depot grounds.
Tim rail road company naa estab
lished Its tracks and built the Stanton
street depot and had used the prop
erty for about SO years. The plain
tiffs in bringing the suit claimed that
the conditions of the easement under
-which the land had been granted had
been violated. The real purpose of
the suit was to establish the rights
of the different plaintiffs to the prop
erty. Is Carried to Appeals Cemrt.
Judge Walthall, of the district court,
returned a Judgment in favor of the
defendant company, and the plaintiffs
in the lower court carried the case
up on appeal to the civil court of ap
peals. The higher court let Mr. White and
the Stevens out on the ground that
there could be no assignment in their
case. The judgment of the lower court
as to Mr. Mills and the Hague heirs
was reformed to the extent that their
right was established to one-eighth of
the property and the railroad company
had the right to use the property only
so long as that use was for railroad

"Very recently I witnessed a perform
ance ot 'The Traffic' in company with a
girl who had herself been a white slave.
This young woman agreed with me that
there was not a shade of exaggeration
in any single detail of the play, and
that facts as they exist today in many,
many cases that are dally coming to
light in Chicago exceed in atrocity the
scenes depicted in the play.
"I. have heard considerable comment
on the inadvisability of presenting such
a play and condemnation of it. In the
first place, it .should be remembered
that this play is witnessed almost ex
clusively by an adult audience not
such an audience as we see In the mov
ing picture show, composed largely
of children.
"If a girl is to be protected and shel
tered all her life, perhaps there Is no
reason why she should witness a play
like 'The Traffic;' but personally I feel
that every girl employed in the indus
trial world and who by reason of her
commercial life is out in the world
alone, would be safer and better
equipped for her life struggle If she
knew the methods employed by the
procurers and ponderers.
".Let a girl understand what a fllrta-
federal white slave witness, who was
held as a prisoner by two Italians with
loaded revolvers for several weeksl un
til her chance came to escape and re
port Jhe, facts to the police; another
beatea . to insensibility by -a man be
cause she did not earn enough money;
another locked in a room above a
Greek restaurant, the room being un
der guard of two men when the raid
was made. White slavery is a reality
and those who say it is a myth do not
know the facts.
"Do the people of the big cities know
that men doing business along the
identical lines followed by Sacco in
'The Traffic' are being convicted in the
morals court every week, and that the
committee of .15 is fighting the busi
ness tooth and nail and -calling on the
citizens of Chieago for-moral and finan
cial backing? ."" ' ,
"It is much Defied tfcjff.gie condi

Chicago, 111., Feb. 19. Moving pic

thrill proof, according to assertions at
the meeting of the American Asso

Farmer patrons of state fairs have
become too blase for the old fashioned
thrillers that have been entertaining
them for years at the big expositions.
Even an aeroplane exhibition no longer
attracts attention and a balloon can
scarcely get an engagement at the
larger fairs, it was asserted.

Make a plain syrup by raising one
pint of granulated sugar and pint of
warm water and stir for 2 minutes.
Put 2 ounces of pure Pinex (fifty
cents' worth) in a pint bottle, and fill it
up with the Sugar Syrup. This gives
you a family supply of the best cough
syrup at a savin of $2. It never spoils.
I Take a teaspoonful every one, two or
xnree iiours.
The effectiveness of this simple remedy
is surprising. It seems to take hold al
most instantly, and will usually eon
?uer an ordinary cough in 4 hours.
t tones up the jaded appetite and is
just laxative enough to be helpful in
a cough, and has a pleasing taste.
Also excellent for bronchial trouble,
bronchial asthma, whooping cough and
spasmodic croup.
This method of making cough remedy
with Pinex and Sugar Syrup (or
strained honey) is now used in more
homes than any .other cough syrup.
This explains why it is often imitated,
though never successfully. If you try
it, use only genuine Pines, which is a
most valuable concentrated compound
of Norway white pine extract, and is
rich in guaiacol and other natural
healing pine elements. Other prepara
tions will not work in this combination.
