The Seattle Star, October 24, 1905


Monday night was one of jollification for a number of Seattle's fallen women, as well as those visiting from neighboring cities.

The reason for the celebrations is not known, but, as a result, several of the unfortunates were booked at the police station.

Marjie Montell, proprietor of an Everett house of ill repute, was arrested for being intoxicated. When apprehended, she was but partially dressed and could not explain what had become of the rest of her clothing. Too much intoxicants had made her ill, and she was taken to the Wayside hospital.

Belle Collins and Ellen Miller were also "pinched" for drunkeness and put up $10 bail.
