6 Sep 1916 – Arrest of “Marquis” Guglielmi Expected to Produce Revelations.

New York white slave investigation with its stories of wrecks of young women held in virtual bondage, was pointing nearer today to probable entanglement of at least one police officer in alleged bribery and extortion through which the system has been kept alive, according to evidence in the hands of District Attorney Swann.  Spreading from the streets the white slave ring reached into the circles of “climbers” of near society folk, the latest revelations indicate. There, through blackmail, the plotters endeavored to collect tribute after women furnished by the ring, participated in orgies of the “new rich”. As District Attorney Swann pressed his investigation of revelations which are declared to have followed the arrest of Rodolfo Guglielmi, self-styled “Marquis” new developments that may lead to further arrests and possible charges against police were expected at the prosecutors office. Rudolfo Guglielmi was formerly the dancing partner of Joan Sawyer, Broadway dancer before her retirement. He was arrested at the apartment of Mrs Georgie Thym.
