Febroary 1, the regular aeeting
program of (rants Pass W. C. T. U.,
tinder the department of "Rescue
Work, " was held in the parlors of the
M. E. chorch.
With an attendance of 40 members
and friends and a subject of import
ance for consideration, a profitable
time was spent. The program pre
pared by Mrs. Beckman consisted of
an instrumental solo by Miss Wini
fred Flanagan and the selection was
enjoyed by all. Mrs. Graham's re
marks on the subject of "Rescue
Work" and her practical experience
in this work elsewhere brought before
ns the many discouragements fonnd to
exist in this department of W. O. T.
The following ia what Mrs. Lorenila
B. Smith, National Sopt. of "Rescue
Work" says of "White Slave Traffic"
The National Parity Conference,
which it was my privilege to attend,
was held in Chicago, October 6-12.
Duriag its sessions many startling
facts oonoerniug the conditions sur
rounding women and girls were
brought to light
It is admitted everywhere that this
tiaftlc exists. Were this aot a fact
why have lt nations thought it
necessary to establish national com
mittees for its suppression? These
nations are backed np by their re
spective governments, which, as a
role, do not expect to play a role In
an unworiby oudnrtaking.
The Rev. Siduey E. Kendall of
Long Ucarh, Cat., who lias spent con
siderable time lu investigating con
ditions iu the various cities, and can
PMtb what he says by indisputable
evidence, said lu his address before
the Confereuoe : "White slaves are
hunted in the jungles of Europe that
they call Christian Cities. They are
captured, abdiuitod, deceived, betray
ed, kiduapped aud drugged. They
ar secured by any menus that lust
can prompt or avarice devise. They
are brought to this country in com
panies and (listribued among onr
cities according to the demand of the
market. This White Slave 1 rattle has
its bureaus of exchange, its schedule
of prices, Its expert operatives and
all the features of hii interstate and
international coniiuerc. It Is or
gmiuod like an advancing army, and
Its war client is available for mutual
defense everywhere. If one of its
ageuts gels into trouble in Los An
geles the (Vrcle Francaiso 1ir New
York telegraphs fundi for his de
feline. "The wares of this traffic are young
girls, Ignorant, helplens, bewildered
nml terrined, who cannot speak Eu
glish, and who sometimes do uot so
much as kunw where th y Hrn."
This is uot the worst ! Our owu
girls are being hunted. Nearly every
iitsiie uf the daily pajw in our larger
cities has Its story of "A I.osttiirl."
What becomes of th.tu? Drngged iu
a licmied cafe, lift 'Mi into a cab
uuder the very eyes of the police and
"taken through the portals of hell."
The white slave tratlij has two
divisions, the importation of foreign
women for commercial purposes ami
the procuring of our own girls. If
the law alone could nuppress its traffic
it never would have ensted, for it
is already outlawed i-i every state and
city Hut the laws ag.siut the tratt'u
are not . nforced. The police say the
public .lo not wnt them enforced,
: and so 1 .it it lies at the door of the
"r'wtiau public. Tliere are those

bought and cold. Thii traffic ia not a
private rice, the business is poblic,
although the traffickers aeek to keep
their damnable business hid from the
poblio. Avarice pandera to mans'
baeer passions, and it ia proved that
the white slave traffio exists because
there ia money in it. Mr. Kendall
"The market exists because fortunes
are made by It As a poblio business
the white slave traffic cannot be car
ried on in a mauner to be remuner
ative without . the use of certain :
poblio conveniences, which it cannot
obtain withoot the passive consent of
the public. So the responsibility
comes rooDd to the public once more.
"The white slave traffic most have
a privileged area where it will be
guaranteed the privacy it r-quires.
It most have the protection of the
police and the practical abrogation
of all laws detrimental to i interests.
All this it obtains, and the public
raises no objection. So the 'red light
district' is a monument to a city s
. . . ... i
It has already Deen aemonstra.eu
that in some cities the white slave
traffic, or that much of the social evil
that owes its existence to the non-enforcement
of law, can be abolished by
the imperative and continooos de-'
maud of the entire Christian pnb
lie" Mr. Kendall closed bis impassiooed
address with these prophetic words :
"Christianity must sopprees the white ,
slave traffic or abdicate. And I don't
believe she will abdicate. What
heaven and earth are waiting for is a '
ringing demonstration of Cbristiaaity
in earnest. Let the whole Christian j
chorch acknowledge the shame that
has come opou her. and we shall see j
the beginning of the 20th century re
vival. Details we leave 'to be deter
mined by local conditiona. Speaking
as a Christian pastor, to Christian
people, and the Christian world is my
audience, I am bound to say that after
all, oor first and best hope is the gos
pel. Whatever 'he law may say
whatever the anthorities may do or
refuse to do, a determined Christian
poblio in any city can pot this mar
ket out of business. Withoot going
beyond your acknowledged duty as
Christians, yoa can create a situation
that will make it impossible for this
infernal market to continue its busi
ness; aud at the same time you can
make it impossible for the authorities
to refrain from doing their doty.
You can pour through the dark places
of yoor cities a purifying flood of
light aud love, and truth. You cau
do this today, tomorrow, next week.
and as long as necessary. You can do
ihis whenever yoa care to take the
trouble. Fifty determined men cau
paralyze the toughest tenderloin in
the Uuited States so far as the white
slave traffio. is concerned. All that 1
ask is that you pot behind those men
the united sentiment and support of
the Christian public.
"Uixl send us leaders with faith and
conrage, and who, iu addition to
these, shall possess the qualities the
emergency demands the power of ;
initiative, consecrated strategy and
iuspired enthusiasm. With leaders 1
like these, the people are ready. And '

TUNNELS WILL BE

' . pacific Preparing to
Improve Road in Sacra
The Soothern Pacific tunnels
tbroonh the canyon near the head
waters of the Sacramento are all to
be strongly lined with concrete as a
protection against Are and cave-ins.
Six thousand barrels of cement are to j
be delivered at Redding and stored
thereby tin railroad company as a
sopply for the contemplated improve
ment. Ten carloads of cement have
already been pHt down at Redding.
First the approaches to the 12 tun
nels will, one after another, be faced
with concrete.. Then the entrances to
the tooneia will in turn be lined with
cement for 100 feet. After all the
tunnels have received their concrete
and entrances sections 01
given another section of 100 feet fo
cement coating further in. This pro
cess of a little at a time will con
tinue without the interruption of
traffic till all the tunnels will be
solidly roofed and walled with con
crete. Tounel 0, this side of Redding, was
blocked so badly last Summer that a
temporary track had to be built roond
it. This track is still in ose, al
though a crew has been working for
some time to clear away the obstroo
tion and oement the interior. It is to
avoid the expense and delays of such
cave-ins that the concrete facings are
to be introduced

A MINE IN 1YL0 COUNTY
The Alexandria Gold
Owns a developed mine in the Argos range of mountains in i0y.
on y C.liio.nia, and according to the ' report h 5$
tons of ore in sight. The engineer s report ia herewith given : ""
The Alexandria Gold and Copper
Gentlemen : I nave nnisnea au m"ui caiuiimuon ot vorj,
properties in the Argus Range of mountains. Since making tny .
aminatious some years ago, I find your properties have been develop
continuouf-ly. I find the developments under the efficient direction
voor superintendent, Mr. H. C. Hamilton, have been carried 00 in M
economical and systematic mauner.
There is now on your property
feet of shafts, all in ote, throwiug a very large tonnage in sight, I
should say, on the "Little Maud" and "Knight' vein, which have
been exploited by nine tunnels and numerous cots along the vein, ex.
posing the ore for fully 1700 feet in length, there is fully 40,000 toni
of ore that could be callud in sight. On the "bouMi Inyo" vein theru
ar 5000 tons in sight, and on the "Star of tha West" there are also
50OO tons that can be cons-ivativelycalled in sight.
At no place wfiere the ore was opened were values oeiow nulling,
and at least seven per cent of the ore can be sorted for shipping. "Xtii
ore cau be cobbed to over $100 per ton. I have snggesetd in my detail
report that a bucket tram and a 25-gtamp mill should be immediately
erected. These improvements would cost f.50,000 and would imme
diately put your property on a dividend paying basis. A 20-stamp
mill would mill four tons to the stamp, or 80 tons per day. From my
sampling your mill.ng ore should average $15 per ton, or $1000 to $1200
per day, in free gold and concentrates, aud your shipping ore at least
tour tons jier day, have a value ot over f iuu per ion, or if-100 ner day.
This can be done at an expense of $3 per ton of ore mined. I shonid
reommend this expenditure immediately. Yoor property will then
pay euormons divideuds and with the large tonnage already opened np,
of known values, would pay for years.
Id my opinion the property, with depth, is turning into copper.
All of yoor lower workings dem'nstratf this, the gold aiid silver
values holding out. With a larger per cent cf copper co ruing in, and
with the advent of the railroad, your property wouldmore and more
be brought into prominence as a shipper..
Yours very truly,
(Signed) W.B. GILLINGHAM, M. E.
Docs Cbis Cook Good to You?
It certainly looks good to us and yoo will Dote that additional
stamps are needed to mill the ore already in sight and that is tbs
reason Btockk is being sold at the prospect price of 25 cents per share.
Will Vou Bny Some of the Stock?
The stock is easily worth double the price asked for it, but tin
quick money is worth more to the company than the stock that will
have to be sold to boild and equip the niilL The stock ia selling at
the price of many ordinary prospects, but as a matter of faot;,it is a
REAL MINE. If yon failed to realise the importane of the above re
port, read it over again and see if you do not wish to join as a part
ore, in a proposition that you, yourself must acknowledge is meritor
ious in every respect
Get Some Alexandria now.
"""After the present allotment is sold, the stock will be entirely
withdrawn from sale, and will undoubtely be worth from two to four
times what it is now selling for. Stock in a dividend paying mine at
'5 cents per share is certainly a bargain, and that is what Mr. Gill
ingham says it is, as soon as the mill is in operation. The ore being
in sight, all tnat is necessary -is the equipment to handle it. The
allotment will be sold promptly and in offering it to you, it is on
necessary to state that we advise its purchase. Don't be too slow in
getting your orders in. As soon as you read this, write or wire the
number of shares you want. Our customers are our best friends, be
cause, we make them money.
