The decision ot the United States
supreme court in placing; the literal
interpretation on the Mann act law
In upholding the decisions of the state
courts in the cases of Maury I'. Diggs,
F. Drew Caminetti and L. T. Hayes,
wilt" have no bearing on the future
workings of the United States De
partment of Justice, according to
Marshall Eberstein, agent in charge
of the local office of this bureau of
the secret service.'
The Mann act has been in operation
since lyiU. since that time about
half a hundred) cases have been tried
in the federal court in this state. Over
forty of these cases have been tried
sinccMr. Eberstein came to Omaha
three years ago.
In the three years Mr. Eberstein
has been at the head of the local
bureatrtnly two have been acquitted.
One man was acquitted in the United
States court in Omaha and one in
the court at Lincoln. Forty have
been convicted in the three years.
Twenty-two were convicted of violat
ing the law during 1916.
Evidence Elusive.
"As a matter of fact," declared Mr.
Eberstein, "practically all of the white
slave" cases are commercial, but this
feature is generally very hard to
prove. It is many times impossible
to obtain evdrnire proving the com
mercial feature when it is known to
be contained in the case.
Of the forty convictions in this
state since I have been in Omaha we
were positive of the commercial fea
ture in practically every case.
"The decision of the court will not
affect our methods at all. The law
remains the same. The law does not
make an exception for noncommer
cial cases, and our department in
making investigations and arrests has
never made exception. The decision
of the supreme court will not make
it any easier for us, will not influence
our work at all, and we intend to con
tinue as we have done in the past."

Reminhcent of Old Creole
Days-Beauregard 's Home
Standing ii) columned
majesty, the Beauregard
home is typical of old
New Orleans days. Its
slender Ionic pillars recall
the halcyon times of the
'fifties, when Louisiana
ball-rooms were thronged
with glittering toilettes
from the ateRtrt of great
modistes. One can
almost picture the court
ly master, as Tie returned
from the Mexican wars,
a hero of heroes, ac
claimed by North and
fYsv tf Ca. BtAUreiarJ
South alike a warrior worthy of his gallant Creole ancestry,
Fiery romance still makes the Beauregard home her own. In
recent years it has staged desperate scenes, even to bloody battles
between rival Italian clans.
That is the- piquant charm of New Orleans today; at any corner one
may stumble on an unexpected story, some fantastic tale of happenings
which make the past live again in the reality of modern times.
Everyone who b aGve to the thrill of romance wants to visit this
magic city now. Its cafes are a-bubble with lifej its ball-rooms again
resound to the music of Creole airs; its Opera House is packed to
the roof as in the early days of Calve. For the opening of the
Panama Canal has brought gold and gaiety to New Orleans once more.
The Panama Limited
To Neto Orleans from Chicago and St. Louis
provides for the traveler a journey as unique as the pleasures
which await him at the journey's end. It is the most sumptuous
train, ever ' run between the North and South; jhe "magnates1"
train, people call it, because it is the train business men take when
they want luxury and speed. No extra fare.
The Panama Limited has materially cut the fastest schedule to New
Orleans Ver made before. Leave Chicago at half-past noon, or St. Louis
at 4:30 p. m.,and arrive in New Orleans in time for lunch the next dajr.
No one who goes to California, to Cuba, to Panama or to South
America can afford to neglect-New Orleans tn joule. And every
one who values the good things of travel goes via Panama Limited.
, Leaves Chicago Daily 12:30 P. M.; St. Louis 4:30
P. M. Arrives New Orleans 11:30 next morning.
