Vigorous Debate Over Proposal to Repeal Exemption Clause.
Discussion of Woman Suf-
Switched into Attack on Wilson.
Wafsfhington,, Feb. 18.���Accusing
���President Wilson of inconsistency In
his views of the binding effect of the
Democratic platform and charging
that "greed of the railroads and the
audacious claims of Great Britain seem
��ar more potent with our president
than the appeal of the womanhood of
the nation," Senator Bristow, Republican of Kansas, turned discussion of
woman suffrage in the senate today
into a vigorous debate on the proposed repeal of the free tolls provision of
-the Panama canal act.
Senator Bristow's attack brought to
the defence of the president several
Republican as well as Democratic sen-
:itoris. It served also as the signal
ror the opening of the fight within
the Democratic party against the repeal of the tolls exemption provision.
Senator Chamberlain of Oregon, Democratic, dramatically declared he
would not "stultify himself by telling
his constituents that he had not kept
his platform pledge because the president of the United States does not
agree with him."
President Holds Conference.
While senators were thus engaged
in the first open discussion of the approaching battle In congress over th
directly Invested a dollar in the construction of the canal."
Concluding, after frequent interruptions, the Kansas senator declared that
the "fight to save the grip of the
transcontinental railroads cannot be
hidden behind our relations to foreign
countries or the skirts of the president
of the United States."
Senator Shivley, acting chairman of
the foreign relations committee, ended
the discussion with the declaration
that there were two sides to the question which congress would settle and
that the president needed no defence.
"The president's position," he said,
"is well understood by the country
and tho difficulties of the situation
are likewise understood by the country."
Trouble  in  Ottawa    Over    Bilingual
School Question���English Members  in Control.
Ottawa, Feb. 18.���After considering the motives and reasons set forth
by the English section of the separate
school board for the famous notice of
motion presented at the meeting this
week, calling for a separate bilingual
school board, Chairman Cenest has
come to tho conclusion that there is
some ulterior motive behind It all.

of the house of representatives who
are opposed to repudiating the declaration of the party platform. He dis-
CUSBed the situation with Majority
Leader Underwood and Representative WltcMn of North Carolina, but
��o far as could be learned, did not
convert them to his view that the
provision granting free tolls to American vessels violates the Hay I'aunce-
fote treaty and embarrasses the administration in its foreign relatious.
Charges Inconsistency.
Senator Ilrlstow based his charge of
Inconsistency against the president on
the ground that he had told the suffragists he could not advocate their
cause because the Democratic party
had not expressed Itself on the question, while he proposed that congress
ahould reverse itself on tht* tolls ones
In addition to this he declared that
a spirit of dissatisfaction had been
fomented amongst the English sec-
lion through the machinations of
Bishop Kallou and others of "his
ilk," as he  termed  them.
'in regard to the payment of taxes
I doubt very much if their statement
is true. I am going to look Into the

Missionary Committee.
"The Work of the Missionary Committee" was the subject of the address given by Herbert K. Caskey at
the afternoon session, given on the
lines of the value of preparing definite
work to be accomplished, and the
necessity of some definite object or
enterprise being always the aims of a
congregation, and the great difficulty
tbat has been experienced on account
of the general vagueness about missions. He also impressed upon his
audience the necessity of lining up
some definite proposition, which can
be considerably assisted by the distribution of literature concerning the
same in the various churches.

House Takes up Task of Bringing About Electoral Reform���Compulsory Attendance at Polls Suggested.
Ottawa, Feb. 18.���The parliament of
Canada has formally committed itself
to the task of dealing with the question of electoral reform. The momentous step was decided upon at today's
session as the result of a resolution
moved by Mr. MacLean, Liberal member for Halifax.
Mr. MacLean moved for the appoint
made between a candidate personally

of offenses against the act, and a candidate who condones corruption. Mr.
Doherty suggested making it compulsory for voters to go to the polls no

A deputation from North Vancouver
district was present, and it was stated
by the clerk of that municipality that
the difference between advertising
and posting notices there would be
as between $35 and $250, there being
40,000 parcels of land and some 10,000
names on the roll.
In the deputation there were Reeve
May, Councillors Bridgman and Lou-

the municipality.
Among the matters that were dealt
with by Councillor Loutet and Mr.
Farmer, who were spokesmen for the
deputation, were t'.ie naming of arbitrators In expropriation matters by

A controversy in which Canada has a vital interest is
that now being waged at Washington, D.C., on the question as to whether or not American shipping is to be exempt from Panama canal tolls. Included also in the settling of this problem is the decision of another question
of less import to Canada, but bulking large in the opinion
of American politicians, whether or not President Wilson,
as an executive personality, is as strong as he was when
he forced the currency bill down the throat of his government and probed the lobby game to its depths.
From the viewpoint of this side of the international
border, it looks as though the man in the White House,
the college professor who is one of the least spectacular
jmd at the same time one of the most striking of all presidents since Washington, has to back his opinions more
personal power than ever.
One thing is certain. Wilson has decided that the
United States did wrong in repudiating the Hay-Pauncefote treaty with Great Britain and he intends, if it is at
all possible, to wipe out what he considers the blot of that
repudiation by replacing American coastwise shipping using the Panama canal on the same basis as the bottoms
sailing under foreign flags. His fitjht on this question,
however, promises in some ways to be a hotter one than
the campaigns he waged against his own party for other
pieces of legislation last year, campaigns, by the way,
which he won.
The currency bill, the lobby probe and the other matters he pushed to a finish by sheer force of Wilsonism
were questions within the nation. The Panama canal tolls
controversy is different. It involves a dispute with a
foreign power and, not only that, it travels close to the
line of American national honor, since a decision to recognize the weight of Great Britain's contentions with regard to the Hay-Pauncefote treaty would mean that, by
ignoring the terms of that pact, the United States had
broken faith with a friendly power. Therefore, it is to
be assumed, that in his fight for the replacing on American ships of Panama canal tolls, President Wilson will
have arrayed against him the ever-hysterical American
patroitic sentiment, the full brother of that spirit which
in this country went so far to defeat Sir Wilfrid Laurier
when he undertook to champion reciprocity.
President Wilson's attitude on other matters is sufficient guarantee that he will not recede from the stand
he has taken on the subject of Panama canal tolls. The
question is, can he club his party into thinking with him?

Dobbek, True Patriarch, Carries Shepherd Crook and  Flashes a
Fat  Roll.
Montreal, Peb. 18.���Dobhek, with
shepherd's crook, and white bearded
like the patriarch he is, is the king of
the gypsies in Canada. Dobbek, who
maintains that he has no other name
and refused to give any English designation for himself, is on his way
weft to gather .together about 140
members of the gypsy clans and bring
them down to the sea provinces for
the rest of the winter.
Every year this migratory people
changes Its habitat several times and
indeed many of the little gypsy groups
spend the entire year with never more
than three or four days in a single
town. Already since fall, about six or
seven tribe units have passed through
Montreal to the east, where a sort of
gypsy headquarters Ib established during the winter months.
Go West In Spring.
In the spring they will board trains
anain, leaving one family of about'
sixty members at a time, for the!
west. Here they will scatter from
Montreal island to the Pacific coast,
roving from city to settlement, and
from village to wilderness.
Most of the gypsies make the annual sojourn into the sea country by-
railway, although their summer life is
that of true nomads, with camps pitched wherever night finds them, and
rumors of kidnaping and evil doings
following everywhere ln their wake.
Dobbek, like most of his fellow
tribesmen, aprpeciates to the full the
romance of his roaming life, and like
them he Is never loathe to dilate on
his adventures���for a consideration.
The man was born in a gypsy tribe
in eastern Germany, as he related this
morning. About 30 years ago an ex-
I odus  of  some  4000   gypsies   from   ail I
parts of Europe and Asia Minor swept
| bim out to Canada, where in time lie
I became the head of liis father's tribe,
and then,  by  virtue of leadership as,
.well as rank, quietly assumed the su-,
perintendence of the whole gypsy com-
m unity.
Chief Slouchy.
Dobbek is swarthy, fairly tall and
dresses rather sloucliily. He carried
this morning a gnarled walking stick,
the only conspicuous part of his cos-;
tHine. r he stick was about half again
SB lo.ig as the ordinary cane, and
crook-*d at tho top like a shepherd's
staff. It has been the property of the
gypsy chieftain since he was IG years
old, he said, his father having made
him a present, of It when Dobbek was
a lioy In a German .gypsy tribe.
Rumors of his fabulous wealth grow
up, it is said wherever Dobbek goes,
i and he seems to take a keen delight
in flashing a thick roll of money before station agents and visitors, be-1
fore whom he is very ostentatious. He
speaks English with a lazy draw), but
very plainly. Dobbek claims to be
equally fluent in all the. European languages, besides the weird lingo of the
gypsy  tribes.
He is on his way to Edmonton,
whence he expects to return to the
east with the last contingent for the
hibernal gathering in New Brunswick, within a week or ten days.

Herbert on June 30 last year.
Clearly and without any hesitation,
Kopplin  told  the  court the  story  of!
the crime.
He and Devlin had gone into the elevator on Sunday afternoon, June 15
and Devlin had scattered some waste
In the engine room and had put coal
oil on it and set it on fire. The fire,
however, had been extinguished before much harm was done.
On the evening of June 30, Devlin
had gone with him to his barber shop
where they had drunk together a
flask of whisky and a bottle of beer,
after which Devlin had filled the beer
bottle from a can of gasoline which
Mopplin had ln the shop for a little
stove. He asked Devlin what they
were going to do. Devlin said "Up
goes the elevator tonight." They
went over together and entered the
elevator where the gasoline was left.
As it was too early they came back
to town and waited around, after
which Kopplin went home. Shortly
after th elevator was found to be
on  fire.
Devlin   Also Confessed.
The counsel for the crown tendered
in evidence a confession made by
Devlin *hile In jail to R. J. McLelland,
barrister at Herbert, and one Imrie,
the town constable. Mr. Regan fought
hard to shut out the confession but
it was admi 'ed by Judge Lamont. The
confession corroborated Kopplin's
statement in many respects, but stated
that Kopplin set fire to the * aste

YOU'VE met at least one of those few good old
souls, who are constantly getting lhe worst of it
when shopping, who don't believe in advertising.
A hundred disappointing and instructive experiences
have fuilcd to teach him their pluin lesson.
When he bought his first watch he was beguiled into
buying one without a known name or a trustworthy
guarantee. That watch-���a poor timekeeper ��� cost
him dearly by reason of missed appointments and
missed trains, and for frequent repairs. Yet he paid
the price of a good watch.
It is the same story with regard to his underwear,
his shoes, and his fountain pen.
This good old soul's case is not unique. Many of us, if
the truth be confessed, resemble him; we allow ourselves to be sold merchandise with an unknown brand
or trade mark instead of buying merchandise which is
well known to us through the medium of advertising.
In slang language, we get "stung" pretty often.
In most of these cases we have ourselves to blame, for
"the road to the right" thing to buy has been made
plain by advertising.
There is no good reason for passing by the known
thing, soundly guaranteed, to buy a dubious article,
which, quality for quality, cannot lie cheaper than the
k.iown, branded article.

Or. Charles Seilkwick Minot, professor
of anatomy and embryology at Harvard medical school, emphasized to
lhe medical students cf McGill university in replying to the toast of his
health at. the 32nd annua! banquet of
the faculty at  Place Viger hotel.
The toast of Alma Mater drew from
the president the comment that even
if they tlit! nothing else but live up to
the traditions of McGill and the things
that had been Instilled into them during their course, students would not
be a railure. and would have done
[something to leave the world a little

Dean Adams responded, in the absence of Principal Peterson and after
referring to the fact that it was at
McGill he secured his preliminary
training, pointed out that before McGill got its charter then* already existed the Montreal Medical School,
which was taken on its a faculty of

City   Hockey  Champion-hip at  Stake
Tonight���'Both Teams Are Confident.
The tit bit of amateur hockey will be
uncorked at the rink tonight when
the Heavers and Fraser Mills settle
their little dispute, as lo the city championship and the consequent right to
challenge Vancouver for the Savage
trophy. Everything points to fast,
hard checking hockey tonight. Both
teams are said to be in the pink of
condition waiting for the sound of the
gong which will start them off on their
fiO minute giiiul and the largest crowd
of the season is looked for when
TTugh Lehman faces the puck.
Both the Heavers and Circle F are
tied for first place in the local league
having defeated all other teams In
the league antl have broke even In
lhe four games played against each
Tbe Pciver lineup wlll present
practically no change from that which
took the Ice against the Y.M.C.A. last
winter in the final game and with
the Idea that possession, of the McRae
trophy represents nine-tenths of the
battle. Ihe I ui-.e-h under Ben Robb are
likely to cut some figure in the way
of speed ami combination.
Doc Scott's artisis from the lumber
mills have Ilu* same confident tone as
the Beavers, perhaps a trifle more so,
following the sound licking hand��d
the Champions last week. The Circle
F bunch will rely on a different style
of play than their opponents, the old
style hit-and-run method being more
of a favorite than the well polished
cemihinajion  machine of the Beavers.
Tonight's game is positively the last
time these two teams will come together this winter. The winner will
not only capture the handsome MclLae
trophy, but will also have the right
to play the champions of the Vancouver league for the provincial championship, arrangements for such a series
now being hi the hands of lh** trustees.
Hugh Lehman will he the referee
with Edide Oatman as judge of play.
The, face-off will take place at 8
o'clock sharp.
Jock Carinduff, Shawcross, Don Mcl.eod ami George Caydzlen. McNaughton and Bob Christian wlll form the
full back division with Phil Samphor
between the sticks.
According to reports from the railway centre only one change will be
made by Coquitlam, Arthur Leigh taking the place of Harrop on the forward
line. y
An application for a big block of
seats reached the local management

Crack    American    Half-Miler   Speaks
Highly of A. L. Jackson of
Philadelphia, Feb. 18.���According to
Ted Meredith, the Olympic champion
and half mile world's record bolder,
A. L. Jackson, captain of Oxford university's track team is the greatest
runner today. Jackson will enter the
:.*lay carnival to be held here under
tbe auspices of the Unlversit yof
ePnnsylvania, Speaking of Jackson's
prowess,  Meredith  sa\.-*:
"Jackson has ten running gears and
it is his ability to go from a swing
Into a sprint that wins for him. When
Jackson Is going the route he has a
long sweepng gait and a remarkable
fact is that he. pays less attention to
his lielel than any runner today.^Jack-
son knows what he can stand mid al-
svays Judges his own pace rather than
follow a man killing pace and be burnt
up at the end.
"When Jackson gels ready for his
sprint be starts. He may be 200 yards
fmm the tape and he may be half a
mite, lie jumps a sprint after running three-quarters that would do
credit to a t|tianer-mlles. As he bears
down upon the leaders his stride
lengthens and his arms swing like
piston roils. Jackson Is so good that
lie can defeat any man in th�� world
if he is within 20 yards of him in the
last quarter. He Isn't afraid to run
himself out and has the nerve and
hea: l. Jackson Is one of the most
Wonderful runners I have ever seen."
It  cost  Sam   Lichtenhein  of  Mont* I

i differently and bet the Montreal mag- '

These   wiseacres  had   it  al   figured
out   that   Vancouver   would    win   the i
championship seeing that New Westminster gained It the first season and
Victoria last year.      Everything, they:
claimed,   pointed   to    Frank    Patrick

when   the   former   lacrosse   magnate
T'.ie Torontos practically knocked
the Ottawas out of the running in the
Stanley cup race la��t night by defeating the Capitals on their own ice by
a score of 4-1. Canadiens by defeating Quebec on Montreal ice kept neck
and neck with the Torontos and from
ail appearances it looks to be a battle
between Torontos and Canadiens with
the chances favoring the latter on account of the number of home games
for the remainder of the season.
At Toronto the Wanderers had but
little difficulty In downing the Ontarios which places tbe latter at the
foot of the ladder. The game at Ottawa was never in doubt from the first
face off. the Toroutos having the Senators nailed to the mast. At Montreal

Ghosts of the Tower.
Sir Walter Raleigh's phantom is
said to have been seen flitting noiselessly about the cells and passages of
his long captivity. Suddenly the white
figure of a woman has appeared upon
the execution ground, and as suddenly vanished���assigned to one of Henry
Vlll.'s queens. A sentry, watohful and
alert, has fancied that he has heard
proceeding from the dungeons of the
White Tower, muffled by the Immense thickness of the walls, the
agonized cries of Guy Fawkes, stretched in torture upon the rack. In all,..,. . .. .*,,,��� , ,
such stories necessarily there must a llfe ���*��"���* ,earfu> fa\ m ,crue' ^
a large element of imagination. In.!-and the lower of London has known

He was neither asleep* nor drunk.
But a moment before he had spoken
to a fellow soldier; he bore a high
character for bravery and good conduct. Mr. Swifte saw him next morning, changed beyond recognition, and
in a day or two the poor fellow died.
The body was interred with military
honors in the Flemish burial ground
at St. Katherlne's. Several persons
attested the man's tale.

These and like mysteries lying for-

welcome announcement recently made
by the authorities that additional parts
of  the Tower of Ixindon are shortly

In such places men have fought for
very dark, especially about the entrance, it was a place of immense
extent, and in it were ranged divers
sorts of racks and other instruments
of torture. Some of these they displayed before me. and told me I should
have to taste them. They led to a
great upright beam of pillor of wood,
which was one of the supports of this
vast crypt."
The torture applied was that of the
iron gauntlets, the man  being swung I
up   by  his   wrists,   upon   which    the!
whole weight of the body was thrown.!
A second day the prisoner and his jailers went down  to .the chamber with j
the same solemnity, and  the  torture
was renewed, and again a third day;
but no word escaped the lips of the f
semi-conscious    priest.    Sir   William

It is well that the public should be
permitted to see more of the Tower
of Ixmdon. There is no other spot in
England that so strongly fires the im-
aginarnin. Much there Is that cannot
be shown so long as the Tower is
maintained as a military station, with
its present large population of soldiers and officials. Besides the dungeons, it is contemplated to throw-
open parts of the Bloody Tower, so
soon as arrangements can be made
for housing elsewhere the warders
now resident there under royal warrant. This tower, dating from the
reign of Edward  III. and  Richard  II.

In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store/' "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend thi*
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is-
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and add*
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

New York, at the instance of the
American Red Cross, will undertake
one of the greatest humanitarian and
engineering projects ever known���
the prevention of floods in the Hwai
river valley in China.
The whole enterprise depends now
upon the ability of the Chinese government to find a market for the proposed bond issue. It is anticipated
that this will not be difficult, and the
prospect Is that American dollars as
well as American workmen will have
charge of the situation.
Bankers here are expected to become subscribers to the issue, which
will not. however, class the undertaking with di liar 'diplomacy," since the
Red Cross has made the agreement
with China.
Five Engineers to Go.
Provided the bonds are readily salable a committee of* five distinguished
American engineers will be sent to
China with Dr. Chen Chin Tao, a
graduate of Yale university, who is
now on his way here to represent ehis
country in the negotiations, in time to
observe the next overflow of the
Hwai, which generaly occurs in July.
The Chinese thought well of tho
proposal, but would not authorize tiie
work unless tbe Red Cross would take
general supervision, because of the international difficulties involved in
raising the money and granting concessions for the work.
These hindrances having been removed, the White corporation will

nation Rev. Laird said "lhe men of
the Orient nre worth as much as the
men of Canada, but, we must first
demonstrate to them that Christ hath
wrought great things In our lives and
insiitutions of Canada."
The home mission problem was also*
reviewed by the speaker, and he said
that in the last thirteen years, over
two million and a half people came
from foreign lands to Canada, which
fact alone would give an idea of what
the homo mission problem meant.
Rev. Laird concluded by stirring his
audience with the fact of how the
social problem must be faced by every
man, and left his hearers inspired
with every word of his address.
Churches' Business.
D. M. Rose spoke on the "business
of the church" and outlined the importance of personal work to accomplish and create interest in this movement, making the suggestion of a
stronger adoption of the duplex system of giving to the church and missions. His address was strong, to
the point, and convincing.
Rev. Dr. Endlcott followed with an
address that kept bis hearers spellbound. Beginning with the parable
of the "Jersey Cow," he wove his
arguments into a channel of logic that
none could refine, "Because we anticipate an increase in commercial
trade with foreign lands, the result
of a rational need, it is certainly evi-1
dent that Christianity is needed as i

Charges of Improper Conduct In Suit

United States Senator Thomas P.
Gore was exonerated late today of
charges of improper conduct by a verdict in his favor returned in district
court in the suit for $60,000 damages
instituted by Mrs. Minnie E. Bend,
of Oklahoma City.
The verdict was returned ten minutes after the case was given to the
jury.   Only one ballot was taken.
"We Audi" the jury slated in the
verdict, "tho evidence Submitted by

which to base a suit; that, said evidence wholly exonerates the defendant and had the defendant, at the conclusion of the plaintiff's evidence announced that he desired to introduce
no evidence and rested his case, our
verdict would have been the same in
that event as now returned by us. In
favor of the defendant."
The trial began inst Wednesday. In

The scene again reverts to California. Some little time, later Colonel
Hare, about to start, for Allaha, with
great secrecy takes from the secret
drawer of his desk a large envelope
heavily sealed, which he directs: "To
be opened by my daughter Kathlyn at

this mysterious packet to Kathlyn and
departs. Six months later, Kathlyn
and her sister Winnie are having tea
at sunset in their bungalow. Kathlyn shows her sister the mysterious
packet and explains they will open
It when the hour sounds midnight.
Outside in the gardens, is observed a
high caste Hindu, furtively advancing
with great caution to the low French
window of the room where the girls
are at tiffin. There is a call from the
outside; they drop the packet on the
table, leave the room and Immediately
the Hindu leaps stealthily in. steams
the packet open at the spout of the

but does not touch the sealed enclosure. He then quickly writes a note of
his own, encloses it in place cf th'
one abstracted, reseats the packet and
steals away.
Second  Reel.
The second scene opens at midnight
New Year's Eve. The good old padre
is ringing the mission bells���ringln?
the fate of Kathlyn. She and her
sister innocently open the tampered
packet. There they Bnd the false
note of the mysterious Hindu: "If I
have not returned at this hour, It is
because I am held captive by the people of .Allaha. The only way I can be
saved is by having possession of the
sealed envelope herewith. Bring it
yourself to my headquarters in Allaha.
Catch firBt steamer. Guard well ihe
packet, as you may be pursued by
those who will wish to take it from
you." Kathlyu is a woman of quick
impulse and energetic action, and is
for being a hundred miles away by a
high tide, to take the first steamer
sailing for the Orient.
She makes her steamer and eventually arrives in India. She rides to the
end of the railway line, and there*
hires an elephant to carry her through
the intervening jungle to her father's
station in Allaha. Preceding her at
a rapid pace, is the mysterious Hindu
who took passage on the same ship.
He. is Umballah, the confldeiiiial agent
and is Invested witb unusual power.
His next move is to visit the prison
cell under the palace, where Colonel
Hare is now chained a prisoner to a
stcne pillar. Umballah asks the
prisoner: "Will you consent to take
the, throne unconditionally ?" He emphatically answers, "No."
The next evenl is the arrival of
Kathlyn at her father', bungalow, not
far from the palace. She lias hardly
entered his di scried apartment when
the continuous Umballah steps Into
view from his hidine place and informs her that her father is dead. She
falls in a faint and he takes advantage of her helpless condition to secure ;
Ihe secret, packet from her person as i
the scene dims.
When the l-irl recovers conscious-i
ness. the villain tells her that the i
king being dead, Bhe, Kathlyn, must j
now become queen, and lake the
throne. A lone, del' net-less woman;
In a strange land, she is mon* alarmed I

people.    She    is Informed    that    she
; must take possession of the throne at
once, nud protesting, she is dragged
to the palace, placed upon the throne
i and In Id as captive against ths day
of  the  coronation.    This  develops  a
: wonderful  spectacle, its magnificence
j having kinship with the famed durbar
cf India.   Amid great pomp, she is un-
i willingly crowned by the high priest.
The council then lead Umballah forward and the populace is Informed
that he is chosen as the husband cf
the queen. She is stricken with terror
at this announcement, which is the
concluding feature.
Psychema, Grecian and Oriental
dancer, will appear in the Arabian
Nights pantomime, which is to take
place at lhe opera house Saturday
To those who contemplate viewing
the performance a word about Psychema will not be amiss. This graceful exponent of terpsichore halls from
South America, where she attained a
most enviable reputation. It is Psy-
chema's boast that she has no master
to thank for her success, being the
pupil of none, Institution and Inspiration being the only master, and her
ability to interpret emotions her only
Psychema is not a mimic, every
figure used is her own creation, and
this lalented artist has accomplished
what at first appeared to be a
stupendous task, training 100 people
from the many woman's clubs who are
supporting her in this performance in
the choruses, to walk, pose, gesture
and dance to the rhythm of Hoist's
"Demon of the Woods," Pizzicatl and
selections from Tchaikowsky, Casse
Noissette and many others; In all 14
dances are interpreted that are absolutely necessary to the action of the |
play, in fact the story cannot be' told
without them.
The scenery used is entirely Oriental draperies, nothing lu common with
the usual theatrical production is to
be found in the Arabian Nights pantomime.

made for the entertaining of a large |
