ARCHER DOPE BILL
WINS SUPPORT OF
Vare and McNichol Back
Measure to Curb Drug
Points to Cheap Clothes nnd
Modest Home as Proof of
PENROSE ALSO IN LINE
State Senators James P. McNichol and
"Ed" Varo stated today they would give
their full support to the Archer bill which
has been framed to regulate the sale of
narcotic drugs In Pennsylvania. They also
declared they would work for an appro
priation for a State Institution for the care
and curing of dope fiends.
United States Senator Penrose said he
approved of any good measure which would
reduce the dope evil, nnd ho said that If,
In his opinion, the Archer bill contained the
proper provisions he would support It.
The Archer bill la tho outcomo of an in
vestlgatlon by a special cltliens' committee
appointed by United States District At
torney Francis Fisher Kane to Investigate
the dope scqurgo In this city.
The measure, which Is now only tentative,
was drawn by Plerco Archer, Jr., widely
known lawyer, and a former chief deputy
In the Internal Revenue Department of yila
city. It Is designed to prevent Illicit sales
of drugs by unscrupulous physicians and
dealers, nnd makes possession of narcotic
drugs a crime. It was designed to take the
place of the Harrison act which was
emasculated by recent decisions of the
United States Supreme Court.
"I will not only support tho bill," said
Senator Vare, "but I will Introduce It Into
the next session of tho Legislature and will
use all the Influence I have to force It
through. I believe that the narcotic drug
evil Is a growing ono, nnd It Is high time
we clamped down the lid and drove the
dopesters out of business. We musftop
,this ruining of thousands of our young men
nnd women by the tramc."
"I will gladly support such a measure,"
said Senator McNichol. "Something la
needed to stamp out the drug cll In Penn
sylvania. I have confidence In the legal
knowledge of Pierce Archer. Jr., and be
lieve that the final draft of tho bill will
be a good one. Great care should be taken
In framing this bill so It will not conflict
with the Federal narcotic drug net."
Senator Penrose said: "I thoroughly be
lieve In the principle of this movement to
suppress the drug evil, and If the bill Is
a good one I will be glad to lend It my
Mrs. William Butler, wife of "Bill the
Dude," alleged leader of the International
blackmailing syndlcato which Is said to
have mulcted millions from violators of
tho Mann net, said today that the arrest
of her husband was brought about by his
enemies. She pointed to their modest little
home at 802 North Thirteenth street, nnd
called attention to the plain clothes she
wears ns evidence that her husband had
not accumulated large sums of money, as
has been charged against him.
"I don't care what they say nbout Billy."
she said, "I know moro about him than
anybody else. They haven't anything on
him. It Just makes me laugh to read In
papers that my husband participated In a
$1,000,000 yearly graft. 'Don't you think
If he was getting a slice out of that I'd be
wearing better clothes than these?"
She pointed to a modest house dress
that might have cost JI.B0.
"Why, If Billy was getting all that
money, don't you suppose we'd be living
In a fine house out on the Main Line? I
never saw this Kllpper woman and I nm
sure my husband doesn't know her. I
know that Billy Is Innocent of this. Of
course, a wife always thinks that, but I
have extra good reasons for knowing that
he Is Innocent."
The Importance of the complete set of
counterfeit Government badges, seals and
warrants selted in this city In the Investi
gation of the International blackmail syndi
cate Is realized by the Federal officials, who
hope that the discovery will lead to more
SEEKS PRINTING PLANT
Secret service agents are now trying to
discover the whereabouts of n printing plant
where the blackmailing syndicate had bogus
warrants and Government papers printed.
It Is thought the syndicate established the
plant and maintained It. It Is believed,
also, that lawyers were connected with
the syndicate. The bogus warrants nnd
papers by which extortions were accom
plished bear evidence of having been framed
by a lawyer.
The paraphernalia, contained In a
Japanned tin box, consists of a counterfeit
United States seal, secret service and
United' States Marshals' badges and stacks
of fake United States warrants, by means
of which violators of the Mann white slave
act were Intimidated Into paying large sums
of money for Immunity from "arreBt."
Additional arrests are expected today.
William Butler and his brother, George
Butler, are under ball for further hearing
September 26. William Butler's ball was
fixed at (50,000 by United State Commis
sioner Long, and George Butler who has
been In Jail for the last seven weeks, was
released under $2000 ball.
In reality, William Butler's ball amounts
to $65,000. He was already under $15,000
ball on a charge of having attempted to
blackmail Mrs. Susan S. J. Wlnpenny, of
this city, widow of J. Bolton Wlnpenny, for
$8000, and was surrendered by one of his
bondsmen, Samuel Brown, of 330 South
Fifth street, yesterday morning. The de
mand for the unusually large additional
ball of $60,000 was made by Francis Fisher
Kane, United States District Attorney, who
personally represented the Government nt
the hearing. Last night the prisoner was
taken to the Camden County Jail, where
Federal prisoners awaiting trial In this
district are now held.

was being held In the executlvo ofllcos In
the Land Title Building at the same time
that the nnnual meeting was taking place.
There were about forty stockholders pres

applause. The stockholders recorded a for

annual report, for the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1916, there has been much dis
cussion in the financial district as to
whether n. dividend would bo declared In
the near future. The company reported a
combined surplus of $2,987,975 nt the end
of the year, and It was figured that a divi
dend could very easily be declared and
that there would bo a surplus.

The first amount talked of as a possible

was said that If action by the directors was
not taken today It would surely be taken
Irf January. Tho fact that the directors
took the action in declaring the dividend
today was brought about only by hard pres

From what could be learned In the finan
cial district the whole board did not favor
a distribution at this time, but that a ma

culmination of a fight both within and out.
side of the board.
Reasons which had been advanced by the
directors, who were not In favor of the
dividend, were that the company should
conserve all of the money possible until
the agreement between the company and
the city had been finally entered Into.
The dividend means an outlay of $599,577
to the stockholders, the capital stock of
the company being $29,978,875, and was
