The President of the United 'States, in an almost incredibly short time,
has made good Tiis own words and caused his party to redeem its prom
ise in giving this nation and the world a new tariff iaw.
The President's pen, making his signature to the new tariff act touches
the entire commercial world. Let us meet, as good citizens, the new conditions-
without criticism and give it a fair trial.
Months ago we saw the trend of the tariff, and quietlv laid plans ac
cordingly. We placed orders with large European mills for Linens, to be
delivered to the New York Custom House, -and there be held in bond.

"Everywoman" is a sermon on char
ity charity for the woman who per-
sues false gods in her quest of love.

was presented at the Illinois last night

Walter Browne, a newspaper man,
gave us "iivery woman." He built hi3
story arouud a woman of the stage
one who failed to find what her heart j
craved amid the glamour of her chosen
life and the homage of wealth that
her physical beauty momentarily at
tracted to her. Browne knew his char
acter. He knew woman. He knew
the Balanites that hovered about the
beauty whose charms made her the
toast of Broadway. He put them into
a play. Brow ne w as a struggler in the ;

answer he was attempting the impos
sible. Browne wrote "Everywoman"
In his hours at home. Finally Henry
Savage began to show an Interest
in the Browne play, and he promised
to give it an introduction. Browne
saw success facing him after a long
j battle. Browne saw comfort for him
i self and family in the Immediate fu
ture. The night "Everywoman" was
revealed in a New Tork theatre Browne
died. He never lived to realise his
dream. "Everywoman" ran continu

Is sought to forward that truth Is
love: that love comes in many guises,
chiefly as flattery, again as wealth,
and also as passion; that in so many
instances the awakening comes after
youth, beauty and modesty haveUed
and been discarded.
j "Everywoman," In her youth, was
; loved by one of her own station, but
I the flatterer blinded her to the honest
I impulses of her heart that In her en
thusiasm over the unreal she could not
understand. The stage called her, and
wealth and passion hounded her. Her
every material want was satisfied, but
at the sacrifice of modesty. Youth
and beauty drew wealth to her feet,
but as the years passed these faded,

play proved a successful a'trat:tion on
its appearance , here. "Officer CCC,"
which will be seen at the Illinois Fri
day, is a jolly good farce, and the
secret of its wonderful appeal may be
attributed to the riddle that its plot
presents, the solving of which is ac
complished in a perfect maze of 'mer
riment and lightened by the unfolding
of a charming love story that threads
the three acts of Augustin MacHugh's
thrilling detective story.
Curtis C. Coulter, stamp deputy col
lector of internal revenue of this city,
has tendered his resignation, to take
effect this week. Mr. Coulter has
been in the revenue service in this
city for the past five years. He leaves
the government service to accept a
position as traveling salesman :'or the
Mills Electric company of Peoria, 111.
Mr. Coulters family will remain in
the city until the first of the year.

"Officer 660f' one df;the beef comedies Cohan and Harris have brought
out in years, is to be the attraction at the Illinois next Friday night
and young, turns her aside on Broad
way when she appeals to lilin, and in
her presence takes the arm of a paint
ed woman, still posseuclng some ot
the charms of youth. "Everywoman"
finally negins to see the truth of life,
and it is this inspiration that draws
her in benediction before the lighted
church, after the minister, in a spirit
of charity, psses before her leading
to the altar for the burial service
the body of a waif of the city.
TruLh directs "Everywoman" back
to her old home. While youth and beau-
ty a- gone, iove and truth stiil live !
for her, and in the environs she fcalJ
put behind in her 'pilgrimage into ar
tificial rurrouhdings she found the
comfort that wa$ not to be had among
wealth and passion.
Miss Magrane, in the leading charac
ter cf the play, proves herself an
actress of rare emotional powers, ef
fectively fulfilling the exacting re
quirements of the various moods de
manded cf her. Mr. Grandln as
"Nobody" is big of physique and im
pressive of speech, giving a splendid
interpretation o his part. Throughout
the cast is perfect, while the orches
tration is a feature of the production
that reserves highest commendation.
In "Everywoman" Henry W. Savage
has Kiven the stage a lesson that no
one shoulJ miss heating. The pity
is ths.t we nave not more Savages as
producers cf theatricals. The play
was repeated at e matinee this after

linols tomorrow night, is announced
as "a quaint musical diversion," but it
is much more than that It is a mu
sical comedy, a magnificent spectacle,
with a score musiclanly enough to ac
company the libretto of a light opera
and with a scenic Investiture s on a
scale of gorgeousness seldom seen in
this or any other country. Like "The
Wizard of Oz," it is set forth in words
of one syllable. Children love "The
Tik-Tok Man of Oz". And this one
fact proves that it is just the type of
entertainment tha will appeal to "the
tired business man." But here, in
brief, is the story of "The, Tik-Tok
Man of Oz " Betsy Bobbin of Okla
homa and Hank, her pet mule, have
been shipwrecked, and cast ashore on
a raft on the Rose Kingdom of Oz.
They are threatened with dire punish
ment if they do not immediately leave.
But their fears are stilled when the
Shaggy Man, searching for his lost
brother ,of whom he must ask an im
portant question, drops from . earth
through the glass roof of the green
house. He carries the love magnet
which will protect them from all harm
and so they proceed fearlessly. Hank's
movements cause them to explore an
old well and there they fish out the
Tik-Tok Man whom they proceed to
wind up and set to talking. The Tik
Tok man leads them to the Metal
Kingdom, ruled by King Ruggedo.
Ruggedo. enraged, orders them Im
mediately punished. 'But the Shaggy
Man has stolen the key to the secret
forest and there is found his long lost
brother. The Tik-Tok Man Is wound
up for a thousand years and al! live
happily ever after. Of course this is
merely a suggestion. The play is a
'whirl of coipr, a maze of scenery and
bewildering with costumes. -
A battle of wits that is viewed with
intense interest as waged by the sleuth
and the craftsman in "Officer 666" has
, made that play one of the most inter
esting productions given to the Ameri
can stage in many years. It succeeds
in creating a sensation when present
ed in New York and Chicago last sea
son, where the Interest aroused kept
th box office busy and the theatres
crowded during its record run to the
