Trades I u ion League President
That Women Workers Are
Firmly i n Bo n da ge .
ST. L.UUIS, June 5. The hearing: con
ducted by the Missouri Senate wage
Investigation committee was enlivened
tday by a spirited tilt between Lieutenant-Governor
Painter and Mrs. Ray
mond Kobbins, a Chicago settlement
worker, ns to the place of women in
the modern scheme of life. The Lieutenant-Governor
declared that the at
titude, of women in the Trades Union
League, of which Mrs. Robbins is presi
dent, in urging girls to concentrate in
cities was destroying home ties and
subjecting women to industrial slavery.
Mrs. Robbins agreed that women
were slaves, but that every woman was
entitled to work. She declared her pur
pose was to make women re bell lous,
mo they would demand more pay and
better working conditions.

"Will not the employment of women
result In such a decrease In children
that the country eventually will be
come depopulated ?" asked the Lieutenant-Governor.
"Oh, no," Mrs. Robbins replied.
"There are 25,000 children in my ward
"But are they not the children of
foreign-born people, and do you not
find in ;very city among the American
born people that there are fewer chil
dren from year to year?"
"Yes," said Mrs. Robbins.
Mrs. Robbins said she would be glad
to see people go to the country to live,
but Insisted that under existing con
ditions there was work for women to do
in the homes and it was better for them
to be en gaged In gainful occupations
and they thould be paid a proper min
imum wage a week or more.
Kn forced Slavery Admitted.
"lias not women's employment in the
industries enforced women's slavery in
this country?" asked the Lieu tenant
Governor. "Yes, said Mrs. Robbins.
"And are not women workers more
firmly in bondage than were the Afri
can slaves who were valuable to their
owners and properly cared for?
"Do not employers now know that
when they wear out one girl they can
get another to take her place?"
"Yes, that's true." said Mrs. Robbins.

BOISE. Idaho, June 5. (Special.)
Complete returns from the , Lincoln
County local option election today show
that the county left the "dry" column
and became "wet" by a majority of 28
votes. The "drys" carried a majority
of the precincts, but the heavy major
ity given In Shoshone precinct alone of
,127 sent the county Into the "wet"
The tight waged, in Shoshone County
during the last three weeks has been
a bitter one. For four years the coun
ty has been "dry" under the local op
tion law. The recent division of the
rounty by the Legislature, leaving old
Lincoln County with several of the
.heavy "wet" precincts, made it com
paiatlvely easy for the saloons, to be
voted in again.
The "drys" carried North Shoshone
precinct by one vote, Marley by six,
Richfield by 21, Dietrich by 70. Grand
View by 5. Oaken by 16. Falls City by
10, or a total of six precincts in which
the total majority was 128. The
"wets" carried Shoshone precinct by

that he killed Detective John J. Rear

FAIR ACCUSER DUE SUNDAY
Reduction of Bond Denied When Aid
of Attorney Rejected Prisoner
Bitterly Denounces Veiled
Woman of Mystery.
Gone was all the suave assurance and
cheerful smile of Edmond C. Von Klein,
anegea -marrying swindler." when
Municipal .nidge Tazwell yesterday
morning, resenting the prisoner's atti- j
tude. revoked the special privileges
which had been allowed him, and sum-
manly ordered him to the box where
the rest of the prisoners are kept dur
ing court. The handsome young sus
pect showed great loss of poise at this
blow, coming atop of his alleged iden
tification by a third accuser, the mys
terious "womnn in the white veil." who
says h ? robbed her daughter of Jewels
valued ttt J1Z.U0O.
The breach came when the Court
summarily appointed Tlowden Stott, an
attorney, lo act for Von Klein.
Judge's Anger Aroused.
'Your honor. I don't want a lawyer:
I want to handle this rase mvaelf." de
murred the prisoner, who burst at once
into a long plea to the court for a re
duction of bail and for an immediate
hearing. He cut across the Court's an
swers until that functionary became
angry and said:
"You have been granted numerous
courtesies, but you seem to fell to ap
preciate them. If you Insist, as the
law allows you, on having this case
continued from day to day. pending the
.riivai ot tne complaining witness, you
will take your place in the box with
the other prisoners."
"Won't your honor reduce the bond?"
pleaded Von Klein. "J am alone here,
without friends, and T need them. I
w-lll appear whenever T am wanted. Tn
Chicago en utter stranger furnished a
oona or i4,ooo. and all sorts of pres
sure was brought upon me to Jump It;
even the State's Attorney was willing

all the way to Portland on my honor."

"The bond will stay as It is," said the
Court, and Bailiff Johnson conducted
the prisoner to , the box. to huddle
among prisoners charged with drunk
enness and vagrancy.
Decisive proceedings are expected
Monday, as Miss Xewcomb. the young
woman who charges Von Klein with
faking a marriage and then escaping
with her diamonds, is due to arrive
Sunday night, with other witnesses.
In the meantime the prisoner is do
ing what he can to prepare for han
dling his own case, though the author
ities believe he will produce able coun
sel when the test comes. He was sup
plied yesterday with a copy of the In
formation against him. He observed
quickly that It was signed by Max G.
Cohen, acting Municipal Judge at the
time, and convicted Tuesday in Federal
Court of subornation of perjury. "I'll
make a point of that fact," said Von
Von Klein showed his first bitterness
yesterday in discussing the new charge
brought against him by the "veiled
woman." giving the name Weber. "She
is the same as Mrs. F. Howard, of Den

Chicago as the man who stole her dia

When she faced me at the Harrison

"She also has given several different
places where she asserts the robberv

That's the sort of a woman she is."
This new actor in the case, after one
brief appearance in Municipal Court, of
which the effect was to procure an in
crease of the bond of $6000, has dis
appeared again, but remains in the
city, pnd will await the outcome of the
case. If conviction fails here she will
go on to Milwaukee, where another
charge awaits Von Klein, and then, if
