STATE CAPITOU Salem. Or.. Jan. 30.
'Special.) Delegations from Port
land and 27 other cities and towns in
Oregon tonight took Salem by storm,
captured the State House and held it
until they had assured the members
of Joint Senate and House committee
on ways and means that the state will
support an appropriation of between
1300.000 and $500,000 for the adequate
representation at the Panama-Pacific
Unbounded enthusiasm prevailed
from the time the varlo.a delegations
from the state reached alem until
the speakers representing the different
sections had said their sections of the
state would stand by the legislature
In' an adequate appropriation and had
taken their night trains for. home.
The largest delegation was that
from Portland, but it was by no means
more In earnest or more enthusiastic
than the others. Every one present
seemed filled with the desire to have
Oregon represented at the great ex
position In San Francisco in 1915 and
all were outspoken in the belief that
anything in the way of so-called econ
omy at this time undoubtedly would
mean a very poor idea being conveyed
to the world as to the Interest of Ore
gon people In what was declared to be
a celebration of one of the greatest
achievements in nistory, ma
tion of the big canal that is to bind
the Pacific to the Atlantic and bring
this Coast Into Its own.
Cheera Greet Senator' Pledae.
At the conclusion of the meeting,
which was held in the House cham
ber, and at which State Senator Per
kins, of Multnomah County, presided,
he pledged himself and the members
nt the committee on ways and means to
in appropriation as neary adequate as
ran consistently be made, taking Into
consideration the many things for
which funds will be asked this ses
sion. Great cheers greeted hla state
ments, and the various delegations
:cft amid enthusiasm.
There were acttiully 94 out of 100
members of the dolcsratlon named by
Julius L. Meier, president of the Ore
son State Commission to the Exposi
tion, who reached Salem tonight. This
was considered remarkable. as all
those named are men of business af
fairs, who have much to look after in
their various establishments. They
reached here at o'clock and le:t at
J:5(- f jr home on their special train.
The next larsest delegation respond
!nc to the invitation was that from In
oependence. but there were very cred
itable delegations from other cities
and towrs. and it was said by those in
attendance that the meeting was a
most representative one.
Kntlre State Concerned.
Tom Richardson, original booster for
Oregon and one of the best-known men
in the state, was called upon to Intro
duce the speakers of the evening and
did it in bis usual pleasing manner.
Every section of the state was repre
sented by speakers and it was made
clear that this is not a Portland affair,
but that it la a thing of the greatest
vommercial interest to all Oregon.
Edgar B. Piper, president of the Port
lard Commercial Club, waa the first to
be Introduced. He spoke at consider
able length, as he represented not only
tho Commercial Club, but all of the
clubs of Portland, as well as the Ore

Lord Curzon of Kedleston, in a
speech earlier in the evening, also
referred to the listlessnesa the publio

The division was on party lines,

Traffickers Send Men Into w York

Workers Arc Lured Away by
Promises of Ear Lire. j'
NEW YORK. Jan. SO. (Special.)'
That a slave market, where women ara
sold into lives of prostitution, la
actually carried on in New York City
is a statement of Samuel H.. London,
the Rockefeller investigator of whitaj
slave traffic, whose testimony before
the Curran committee, startled New1
The' most appalling feature of Mr.
London's findings is that here in New;
York commercialized vice flourishes.
The 26,500 women who are in thn
grip of the "white slave trust" in Man
hattan and Brooklyn alone have an,
earning power a year ot $57,200,000
Most of the money goes to the trust,
the women receiving only a scant in
come. This slave market occupies th
back room of a dingy so-called restau
rant in Clinton street. Here, between
1 and 3 o'clock in the morning,
bartcrers in women gather.
Bidden Become Noisy.
When there is a particularly hand
some lot of women to be disposed of,
the slave market, so the investigator
reports, shows as much activity as tho
stock exchange on a busy day. Bidders
for human beings shout their bids and
work themselves into an excitement
that is equal to anything the street
knows, and they shout their figures
so loudly, they can be heard in the
The women are not put on the block.
Bidders have examined them pre
viously and know the ones they want.
The average annual earnings of a
white slave in New York City is $2200,
but in the West they earn as much as
$5000 a year.
"The first remedy. for the white slave
traffic Is to cut off the source of sup
ply," said London today. "About 95
per cent of the women in this life are
either abducted and forced Into It or
are lured Into it by false promises."
Auctions Held Weekly.
The system has it so arranged that
the same women and the same houses
'vere auctioned each week in the back
room of the Cllnton-strect restaurant.
The auctioneer, whose name London
says he knows, as well as those ot the
traffickers and procurers, was an aged
man who has been engaged in tho
traffic of commercialized vice for
Another point brought out by Lon
don might go a long way toward ex
plaining the mysterious disappearance
of Dorothy Arnold and many other
young girls who were seemingly swal
lowed up. Traffickers send women into
the congested shopping centers, where
they meet girls " who are unaccom
panied. They invite the girl to dine,
then she is accidentally introduced to
one of the white slave agents, and he,
usually well dressed and seemingly an.
educated man. wins the girl with a
promise and kidnaps her.
London says that the "vice trust"
has agents working In sweatshops.
Here they become acquainted with tho
hest-looking girls, and, because of the
hard time the workers have, the re
mainder is simple.
'ev- York City t hief Source.
"One can get an idea of the extent
of this white slave trade in New York
City when I say there are 26,500 women
who are white slaves in New York,
against 37,600 in all the other states."
said London. "Why do they multiply
here so rapidly? It Is chiefly because
of economic conditions. Whlte-slavcra
know it is easier to get women whera
surroundings are squalid. Another rea
son is the glare and glitter and nar.
rowness of. the New York mind that
there Is no place outside of New York.
"The traffickers are always after
what they terra a 'green- meal ticket.
That is the way they refer to girls
they kidnap or girls that they induce
to leave factories. Foreign, unedu
cated girls that they bring here they
call 'factories,' because of their great
earning power. An American Insists
on a few rights, such as expensive
clothes and the like, but foreign girls
are satisfied with so much a month."
