HAM AND 1IACON,
--CALL AT	
NEW YORK, Jan. HB.-Wlth Victor Herbert aa president, John P.
Sousa aa treasurer and Reginald de
Kovao aa secretary, with 5,000 of
the leading musical composers and
authpra of the country composing
the rank and die, the Authors' and
Composers' Copyright League of Am
erica has been formally launched for
the purpose ot carrying on tho fight
jn Congress against the "canned music trust."
The object of the new league le to
secure the passage of laws requiring
manufacturers of records, discs and
perforated rolls for mechanical music machines to pay royalties te the
composers. Bills containing the demands of the lengus have already
been Introduced into Congress by
Senator Klttredge and Hepresenta
tlve Barchfield, and the musical authors are hopeful tbat they will Boon
be passed.
All over the country composers and
authors have Interested themselves
In the bill and are beselglng Congressmen for Its support.
Tho composers are very much in
earnest in tholr fight and declare it
Is a case of brains against money,
it Is alleged that the "canned music
trust" la essentially parasitic, since
it exploits the productions and the
names and reputations of American
composers without giving any financial return. The composers assert
that thay are Just as much entitled
to the product of their labor aa are
other members ot society engaged tn
useful or artistic work, and that
Congress should protect them In this
right against the exploitation of the
canned music trust. y
Mo»' determined among the composers in his warfare against the
trust Is Victor Herbert, who declares
that he haa not now a single musical composition in hand and that
he will cease writing music unlees
Congress grants relief from the methods ol the "canned music" makers. Many other distinguished composers have made similar announcements, and It is likely that musical
composition In this country will soon
be a lost art unless ths solohs at
Washington corns to ths rescue of
tha composers.

To this brightening outlook must
be added the work now to be under
takon by the C.P.R. The work of
clearing will bring some present benefit' to the city, und whon completed
will stand as a* permanent addition
to the assets of tire town.. It is
probable thot this will not be the
only piece of land cleared. Back of
the cltv there is some soil, the equal
of which is not to be found on the
Island. It has been properly examined before, and, it is understood
thut the C.P.R. has even asked for
contracts fcr clearing it. However,
it is not known 'for certain whether
this work will bo proceeded with immediately, although the chances Hre
that it will. As it is, it is gocd
news for the city, the potential value of which it would be difficult to
overestimate.

PRO-MULE MALE   VOICE CHOIR.
There are many Welshmen in town
who will remember J. If. Morgan,
who won audi musical fame in the
Old Country as the conductor of the
llesolven Male Voice Choir. According to a contemporary in Victoria,
Mr. Morgan has organised a male
voice choir, thore, and the following-
account of his career is taken from
the same nnper.'
Mr. Morgan from the age of tan
has taken an aetivo Interest in mu-
and ia well known in Walea for
hia triumphs in his favorite activity.
As a boy of more than average ability he wus a member oi the celebrated Welsh Conductors' Club, tile
South Walea Choral Union, conducted by the renown "Caradoe." When
16 years of age he developed into a
base s nger and ho was constantly in
demand throughout the southern
part of Wales as bass soloist, 'taking u leading part in the standard
works of Handel, Messiah, Mendelssohn and Elijah.
He then studied voice production!
and singing tor two and a half
yours with Professor ijarwrence, ths
noted musician of Merthyn TydUl,
who was, by tho way, the fgvorita
pupil of tho reputed -'Monchelea."
Ho commenced choral conducting,
and socti became famous in tho motherland as a conductor. His celebrated, Hesolven male voice choir is
known the world ovor by music lovers, lt won many hundrods ot
pounds in comiwtition, winning tho
National prize two years ago at
Mountain Ash. A serious break in
health thon forced retirement and
Mr. Morgan came to this country to
ropulr his shattered nerves.
Mr. Morgan rapidly mado a name
tor himself In Victoria, ond it ia reported that hc contemplates trying
to organise a male voice choir here.
Mr: Morgan could almost certainly
command a sufficient number of. pupils to justify the effect and it is to
be hoped ho will carry out the proposals.

MORE RUNS ON K, Y, BANKS
NEW YORK, JaUi 80— Bonk e.v
uminera took, active charge today of
the affairs of the New Amsterdam
National Bunk, and the Mechanics
and Traders Bank, after a state in.
spectlon, both of which closed their
doors yesterday. Both of these
bonks were included in the Morse
Helnze Thomas chain of banks, and
after the closing of the National
Bank bf North America a few days
ago, tnere had been what practically
amauhted to runs upon them.
AS 0. result of the closing of these
banks several other smaller institu
tions met heavy withdrawals of deposits this morning. One of these
was the Oriental Bonk, whero quite
a run of depositors wero paid vory
promptly and President Kelloy
nouncod thnt 12 other institutions
had como to the aid of tho bank and
that-he hoped to be able to withstand tho drain.. It Is not anticipated that the closing of the Amsterdam and Mechanics and Tradors
banks will have any effect on the gen
era! hanking situation in this city,
as both of them have been going
through * gradual liquidation for
the last few months In which their
debts and credits have been gradually reduced.
State Superintendent, of Banks Williams said today that the general
condition of banking Institutions In
this city Is good nnd that weakness
has developed only In special cases.
New York, Jan. 80— Depositors
thronged the offices of tho Oriental
bank during the forenoon. The banking rooms are comparatively small
and before one o'clock the line before

BILL   TO     PROTECT    RAILWAY
EMPtiOYEES.
CALGARY, Jan. 80- In the legislature yesterday afternoon Mr.
Simmons, ot Lethbridge, introduced
a resolution In ths interest, of employees ss follows:
"Resolved    that a memorial    bo
cinl Conservative ministry.
Tho debute was introduced on tlie
socond reading of the bill by Hon.
W. J. Bowser. He took occasion
early in his speech to deny the charges made by Duncan Ross to tho effect that he had drawn up the con-
truet between the C.P.R. and Gotoll
whereby the latter was to furnish
t-oolio labor. Mr. Bowser said he
intended to follow this up and would
force Duncan Ross to retract his
words. He would go into Mr. RosS'
constituency,^! ho could not meot
him sooner and deny tho statement.
Mr. Bowser contonded that thoro
was no Just reason for the disallowance of tho immigration bill at Ottawa. He suggested that the reason for the disallowance was found
In tho fact that the G;T.P. wished
to employ Orientals nnd the Dominion government sought to favor that
corporation. He said that the information he got thot tho contract
was being made between the G.T.P.
nnd Gotoll came from a prominent
Llhoral.
J. A. MacDonald asked for his
name.
Mr, Bowser declined to give it,
however, aa it would ruin that gentleman.
The reply of John Oliver was of
tlie regulation type. He charged
Mr. Bowser with preparing a bill
which, from the fact that It was
made inapplicable to those people
who ,wcro oxomptod under oxlstlng
treaty, made the law worthless.
Mr. Bowser contended that an appeal should be takon to the courts
to test the constitutionality of tha
course taken by the government. He
intended to appoint officers and enforce the act.
Premier McBride also spoks in favor of tho bill, pointing out the inconsistency of tho Dominion government in tho matter of disallowance.
Tlio reasons advanced, he contended,
wore Insufficient.
J. II. Hawthornthwaite favored
the bill, and took strong objection
to the Liberal policy. He feared
thnt the visit of Hon. Mr. Lemieux
hnd resulted in no direct results.
Tho debate adjourned on motion of
Mr. Ross.
On the opening ol the house all
tho corrospondonco between the lieutenant govozhor nnd the secretary
of state relative to tho withholding
of assent to lust year's immigration
bill was brought down by the provincial secretary, It Included nothing but what haa already bean produced.
Mr. Mclnnls asked the hon. ths
provincial secretary tho following
questions:
1. Does any agreement or understanding exist between the government and the Salvation Army with
a view to bringing 'Immigrant. Into I.i, tlsh Columbia during the year
10087
2. lias the government any knowledge of any effort being made by
the Salvation Army to bring In Immigrants during the year 1908?
8. Haa the Salvation Army Immigration agonclea been notified by tho
government as to Industrial conditions in British Columbia at the
present time?
Hon. Dr. Young replied aa follows:
1. Yes.
2. Too Salvation Army has arranged to bring In a number of Im-.
migrants as domestic servants and
farm laborers for whom places have
been found.
8. The Saivntlon Army officer In
charge ot Immigration to British
Columbia has full knowledge of the
Industrial conditions In the province
nt ths present time. ,

"The cigarette has gripped us as
it haa gripped the rest of the world"
said one of the moat prominent of
London tobacconists yesterday, "the
clay pips is practically dead, other
kinds of pipes are being relinquished
for ( garette*. Even hardened pipe
smokers are giving way. Cigar amok
crs are coming into line too.
OIOARETTE IS CONVENIENT
"The chief reason la the conven
ience of the cigarette. This hustling age doc. not allow of the leisurely pipe in business hours. In
walking from one office to. another,
or In return from lunch, there Is :u.t
time for a cigarette. So the pip*
Is reserved till night.
Then, when night comes, the clg
nrcttr. often triumphs over the pips,
for no cigarette smoker ever relinquishes them when ones they hav. exerted their influence. They appeal
to all classes. Connoisseurs smoks
them, ths bricklayer smokes them la
preference to hla clay pipe. The use
ot cigars Is diminishing, but that is
dus not only to ths fascination of
ths cigarette, but also to ths fact
that cigars, irom varloua reasons are
more expensive."
NEARLY ALL MEN SMOKS.
Eighty por cent, of the men In
thi. country are, it la calculated, users of tobacco ln some form or oth-
Calgary, Jan. 80— An act ia now'er. Tho average consumption of
cigarettes Is eight to each person
day. Pipe smokers consume at least
six plpefuls a day. Assuming that
a cigarette lasts ten minutes and
pipe of tobacco twenty minutes, it
Is possible to estimate the time
which eighty per cent, of the mon
af the country spend In smoking each
day.
The figures are: Cigarette smokers, 1 hour 30 minutes; pipe smokers
3 hourrs.

The custom' of binding the teet of

by a cdrioua legend.
Tho story runs that there waa once
a concubine of on* ol the anpsisrs
of China, who was exceedingly begu-
tlful, but, unfortunately, she waa deformed In her feet. She waa compelled to resort to various Ingenious
ways to disguise her misfortune. The
ladles of the court, wishing to win
hsr smile, bound up their feet very
much as she had done, and the noble
ladies outside of the court, wishing
to be in the royal fashion, were not
slow to follow suit. Those of still
humbler rank, desiring to ape the
manners of the leaders ot fashion,
twisted and distorted the foot of

NEW. YORK, Jan. itl.-By soon
today the fate of Hairy K. Thaw
will probably be in the bands -of the
jury. The lawyers have finished
their summing up. Justice Dowlin«
began hia exposition of the law iu
tlie case when the court convened
this morning. As soon aa it ia finished the jurors will retire to tbo
| stuffy little room n,ear the court
room where the trial has been held,
there to remain until they huve a-
grecd upon a verdict or until the
court loses hope of thoir ever reaching an agreement.
Mr. Littleton tor the defence, argued tbat there wa* nothing in the
evidence to show that Thaw ,waa
sano when he killed White. On the
othor hand Dlatrlct Attorney Jerome declared that there waa nothing
in the evidence to show Thaw to be
nsane nnd everything to show that
the killimg of White was premeditated murder.
Betwsen these two extremes the
Jury must, decide. They havo the
ground for a compromise verdict of
murder in the second degree or manslaughter In the first degree. A verdict of not guilty carries with lt,
under the plea made, the excuse ol
Insanity and If it la rendered, the

, NEW" YORK, Jan. 30. - Giov.tlni
Morbsitii, the .well known banker coil
'tlriues critically ill at his country
home lb Westchester county,' and In
.view of hid mlvanetU age grave fears
are felt for his recovery. Mr. Moro-
sini's spectacular career has furnish
ed material for many a gcod newspaper story in years post, whlfo the
[escapudeo of the younger members of
his family have likewise attracted
much public attention.
The nationality and schooling. of
Giovanni Moroslni wero both calculated to develop in him lovo cf. adventure with a well conditioned hero
ism. A cadet in tho navy, a volunteer in the army In Italy In 1848, a
companion of Garibaldi, a penniless
refugee in America, hero of street
fracases, Joy Gould's bodyguard,
confidential mnn and partner in business—nrt critic, linguist par excellence, boxer and sportsman—the el-
dor Morosini certainly has beon i
notable figure.
Glovanno Morosini's chiidron in
herited their father's impetuous temperament, and defiance of conventionalities. Miss Glulia Morosini has the
reputation of being one of the best
dressed women in New York. Somo
j.timo sinco she raised a discussion by
[declaring that it was impossible for
a woman of fashion to dress properly on loss than $200,000 a year. She
is an expert whip and a familiar figure on the apeedwgy.
Whilo Miss Glulia often   sets    the
tongue of society wagging, but little
is heard nowadays of her sister, Victoria Morosini.   Some twenty   years
ago this impetuous creature,   in   the
bloom    of   youth, tall and radiant,
with luxuriant     hair, dazzling   yet
[sympathetic eyes, resplendent in the
gorgeous apartments of her father's
manson, broke the totters, threw oil
the yoke of oppression and determined on the wild plan of eloping   with
her father's coachman.    That   night
they wore married.   Nictoria and her
husband fled to    Europe.   But  ever
there they    remained in the   public
eye, and in a few    months returned
to New York.   The $1,000 tho bride
possessed at the time of her    marriage was spent during the European
trip and on reaching this city, husband and wife wore in serious    fln-
!uncial strata.    Doth went to  work,
[the huebond as conductor of a street
car, and the wife as a member    of
the chorus at tlie Casino theater. On
tlie night    it   was    announced   she
would appear the Casino was    packed by an audience attracted through
curiosity.    The young woman was a
.drawing card for a few weeks,   but
at the end of that time she was   allowed to resign.
After struggling against poverty
for nearly two years the young woman left licit- husband and a reconciliation witli hor family was partly
eficctcd. Sho dropped from sight and
it was not until somo years later
that she was located as an inmate
of a convent in Vermont! where sho
is still supposed to bo living In retirement.
Attilfo Morosini, tho youngest son
of tho millionaire banker, came under his father's displeasure some
eight or nine years ago by marrying
without tho hitter's consent. He
chose ns his brido Miss Mary Waah-
ington Bond, a lineal descendant of
George Washington's brother, Samuel. Upon leaning of the beauty, attractive qualities and distinguished
ancestry of the young woman, the
older Morosini speedily forgave his
[son and bride. The latter is now
very prominent in Now York society
ond her ciiniatare is included in Peter Mario's famous collection of Am-
- -lea's most beautiful women.    -
