Albany. Jan. 31. Four hundred dele
gates from labor organizations through
out tho State met hero this nftcrnoon to
protest against tho ousting" of tho Ave
Socialist Assemblymen from Icw York.
About 12S organizations In New York
city were represented, besides seventy
five others throughout tho Stato, nggre

chairman, approximately 1,000,000 mem-
Tho convention call announced that
the meeting would bo called to preserve
iriresenlative C'vernnicnt, American
liberties as esempllfled in tho principles
of frci speech, free press and tho right
of arsrinblngo and to protest against
Government by Injunction.
Seymour Stedman, the Chicago lawyer'
who for the last week has acted as
chief counsel for tho Socialist Assembly
men, declared that the Assembly's action
was prompted purely by political mo
tives, and ho warned tho delegates that
tho assurance of tho perpetuation of
their' liberties lay In tho strength o'
their Industrial organization. ,
The Sterling and Graham Anti-Sedition
bills now before Congress, and tho Hus
sell measure before thn Lcglslaturo
were assailed ns un-Aniorlcan and con
trary to tho fundamental principles of
freo speech. .Stedman, after reletting
tho Assembly charges against tho, So
cialist members, warned the delegates
that they must' fight gag law In America,
insist on representative government, lib
erty of speech and tho right of workers
to lay down their tools and strike when
ever such a course was necessary.
William MacDonald, editor of The
Nation, came as a representative of Os
wald Garrison Vlllard. Ha told the as
semblage that because of tho pending
antl-Eeditlon bills tho rights of the
American peoplo wero in greater peril
than over before, He protested against
thn continued censorship of mail matter.'
Half a dozen resolutions condemning
tho Assembly's action, assailing tho Gov
ernment's use of nnti-sirlko Injunctions
and protesting ngninst tho .Sterling, Gra
ham and Russell bills wero adopted
unanimously and copies wero ordered to
be sent to every member of tho 'Legisla
ture. A suggestion to Impeach those
rosponslblo for the suspension of tho
flvo Socialist Assemblymen wao voted
down with tho explanation that it could
not.be expected that the Assembly mem
bers would Impeach themselves.
Counsel for tho Socialist Assemblymen
said to-night that it was their under
standing that tho Judiciary Committee
lawyers- would requlro another week In
which to present evidence. Tho Social
1st attorneys, however, expressed the
belief that the defenco would not require
more than one week. H was said that
each suspended member as well ns for
mer Socialist Assemblyman would take
tho stand and explain his reasons for
voting on each measure whero his, vote
has been attacked.

ART IN DRESS as interpret
ed BY THE HOUSE OF COLLINS
The Jfynes of Qirlhood
YOU cannot, says Ruskin, dress women beautifully un
less you inculcate the love of good taste in them in
their childhood. And Herbert Spencer says with equal
force that the qualities acquired in youth remain unchanged
throughout one's life.
In harmony with this educational doctrine the House of
Collins takes the pioneer step in dressing the miss from the
ages of six to -sixteen in correct lines, thus laying the, founda
tion for the right lines of the mature figure.
That mastery of line which has made Collins otrt in Dress
notable for women of two continents has now been applied,
wjth equal success, to clothes for children and the smart miss.
Every model is original and designed for the individual figure
since the miss from six to sixteen has her individuality.
She now makes her debut in Collins dress symbolizing the
ineffable sweetness of girlhood sculptured in flowing and beau
