Ten cautionary tales of moral corruption in Chicago's dance halls, offering examples of underage women being given alcohol, violated, and/or forced into prostitution. Scarce in wraps. "[U]pon the altars of vice in the city of Chicago, annually, are 5,000 girls offered up as sacrificial victims of the Social Evil. These five thousand tragedies, differ only in circumstance; tragedies of the home, the shop, street ... and ñ the instance seems to apply in an overwhelming majority ñ†tragedies of the dance."
