Hoke v. United States, ante, p. 227 U. S. 308, followed to effect that the White Slave Traffic Act of 1910 is constitutional.

Bennett v. United States, ante, p. 227 U. S. 333, followed to effect that variances between the indictment and proof which did not prejudice defendants as to names of women transported for immoral purposes in violation of the White Slave Traffic Act are not fatal.

The point of variance between indictment and proof relied on in this case not having been made in the trial court or circuit court of appeals, comes too late when made in this Court.

194 F. 634 affirmed.

The facts, which involve the constitutionality and construction of the White Slave Act and the validity of an indictment and conviction thereunder, are stated in the opinion.
