CiKlllTTEE RESERVES DECISION
Tjiree Hour's Hearing on tW Protest Against Appearance
of "The Clansman" at Broadway 1 heater Will Wit
ness Performance Tonight. .
When the amusement committee ot
the court of common council, which
includes Alderman Whiting and Coun
cilman Worthington and Gear opened
the hearing In the mayor's office Fri
day evening on the protest of the col
ored people of the city against the
appearance here of tire play entitled
The Clansman, there were about thirty-five
in attendance including Acting
Mayor Robinson and Corporation
Attorney A. A. Browning for the
colored people laid in the formal pro
test, the reasons being:
Said play misrepresents the negroes
In this country at large. It is an un
true and malignant representation of
them, their position, characteristics
and efforts to maintain good citizen
ship. Because, its purpose and effect Is
to disgrave and scandalize the negro
race and disparage and dishonor it.
Because, it discourages and ridicules
the negro and his true friends In their
attempts to better the condition of the
race morally, socially and politically.
Because, it stimulates and encour
ages the bitter and malignant oppo
nents and detractors of the race.
For these reasons, it tends to mis
chief and evil, race hatred and conten
tion, and its influence, as observed in
other cities, is against the good order
and well being of the community.
This protest was made on Thursday
as told in Friday's Bulletin and in
behalf of the company Business Man
ager J. J. McCarthy and hla council.
Attorney C. W. Comstook, wer4.pres- '
ent. , -
Has Seen Play. (
Attorney Browning first called Rev.
A- W. Adams, D.D., field secretary and
general missionary of the Colonlel
Baptist convention of New England.
He said mat there were about 300 col
ored people in two Baptist churches
here and 700 to 800 colored people
in the city. Pie told of having seen
the play presented In Hartford and
within a fortnight In Providence. He
had heard the books from which it
was taken, discussed and condemna
tory resolutions had been adopted by
many conventions. The colored people
are disgusted and humiliated when
they hear the name. He said he was
horror stricken when he saw the play.
He told of the different scenes which
were particularly obnoxious to the col
ored people. He thought the character
Mammy jsve was sacrilegious and the
dance "he does immoral and disgust
ing. The character of Gus he con
sidered one that was particularly
harmful to the colored race and he
was horrified at the attempt to repro
duce the lynching bee. There was
nothing expressing the good qualities
of the negro. The scenes were over
drawn and intended to prejudice one
race against another. There was not
a colored person at the performance
who did not feel humiliated and Injured
by the play. School children have
heard of the characters and people not
familiar with the race history would
feel as if the race should be extermin
ated. He didnt' consider that Tillman
could hurt them as much in 100 lec
tures as one performance of The Clans
man. There Is good feelinc here now and
nly once in a while is there any
prejudice. However, within three
months a young woman, a school
teacher who had come hack here to
help her family, was obliged to give
up her work in a mill because the
white girls threatened te strike if she
was not discharged. A colored family
of two had been obliged to move, al
though their rent had been paid in ad-
ance, because they happened to oc
cupy a tenement between two white
families. It is such cases of prejudice
which the colored people do not want
lnnamed, although in both of these in
stances the parties were excellent peo
ple. .- . 1
SUDDEN DEATH OF
EDWIN P. GARDNER
Killed in Runaway Acoident While
visiting in Pennsylvania Former
Superintendent ef Water Depart
ment. Local relatives of Edwin P. Gardner,
a native of this city, received word on
Friday of his death in Pennsylvania
this week in a runaway accident Par
ticulars of the accident, which prob
ably occurred on Wednesday at
Thompson, near' Susquehanna, were
not received. Mr. Gardner had been a
retident of Dorchester, Mass., for the
las: six or eight years, and had been
milking a trip through the west this
si.mrrer visiting relatives. In Susque
hnnna he. was visiting at the home of
his wife's" sister.
Edwin Palmer Gardner was born in
Norwich on July 29, 1835, and spent
the greater part of his life here. He
was the son of the late Edwin B.
Gardner and Eunice Post, and was a
carpenter and draughtsman by trade.
As a young man he sold books in
Ohio for a short time, and be was
also principal of the Greeneville school
being a man of all-around ability to
whatever he put his hand. As a
draughtsman he worked on the plans
for both the Ponemah mill at Taf tville
and the Aspinook mill at Jewett City
and he was In charge of the construc
tion at the latter mill. He was also
employed at the Norwich tileachery,
and his general ability was recognized
by his fellow citizens when they made
him the superintendent of the Nor
wich water department for a term, a
post which he filled with efficiency
and to the satisfaction of those who
had plaoed him it office. About the
last work he did was to engage with
the late Timothy Kelley in the inven
tion Of an acetylene gas machine,
which was patented but never put on
the market. '
His wife, tilio was Miss Melvina
Case of Gibson. Pa., where they were
married February 9, 1865, passed away
about Hiur years ago. Mr. Uardner
had ' lived for the last six or eieht
years with his daughter, Mrs. W. H.
Larrabee of Dorchester, Mass.
Besides the daughter with whom he
resided. Mr. Gardner leavea a son,
Leroy Case Gardner of East Walpole,
Mass. He is survived also by three
brothers and one sister Rev. E. 8.

land. Cat. P. Oscar Gardner of Chi
cago, Charles Gardner of West War
ren, Mass., and Miss Sarah E. Gardner-
of this city. The deceased was
a man of sterling character and held
in the highest respect by all his ac
quaintances. He was at one time dea
con of the Greeneville Congregational
church, and he also was a Mason, be
ing a member of Somerset lodge of
this city, and a member of Norwich
council. No. 720, Royal Arcanum, and
the Modern Woodmen.
Mr. Hammersteln has made quite
clear the meaning of the word "educa
tional" as applied to opera. Educate
is to "bring up,'' and educational op
era is to bring up the public hy de
gress to pay the price. The first les
son, was at $2. The New York public
has now advanced to the second les
son, which Is at 33. By the time the
"regular" season is at hand the pupils
will be educated up to the point of
paying 35. when they will be graduated
into grand opera. Philadelphia Ledger.

Makes Bad Impression. '
Rev. W. H. McLean of Grace Memo
rial church said, he had not seen the
play but he knew that it makes a toad
impression. Its object is to create
prejudice and it tries to make the
northerners ' think the negro Is what
the southern politician says he Is. The
play shows up the negro as a danger
ous element which is not so. The col
ored people, he said, do not seek social
equality with thej whites. The whites
themselva havn't got it so it could
could . hardly b . expected that they
would ask for It, hut they do ask for
the personal happiness which citizens
snouia nave, , . -
Stirs Up Trouble.
Rev. D. W. Cannon of Xlt Calvary
Baptist church never saw the play
but urged that It be forbidden here.
He said he had observed the frlndely
relations of the white and negro hero
during his short residence In this city
and he didn't want to see it broken,
In other places following such a play
or following a 'speech by Tillman
against the negroes,- there has followed
Leaves It . Sting.
Rev. Dr. W. H. Ely of the jMclKoley
Avenue A. M. E. Zion church never
saw it but condemned it from what
others have said and what he has read
about it It has left its sting- in Prov
tdence. His daughter was asked only
the other day if she was not a sister
of one of the characters in the play.
He said that Dr. Kaufman had asked
for prayers that the performance be
denied the privilege of coming here.
A letter from Rev. W. T. Thayer
was read favoring the exclusion of the
play from this city. v

At the play there are very few colored

To See Play Tonight.
There were arguments, by the at

Eloquent Speakers Heard.'
A no-license rally was held at the
Sacred Heart chapel en Friday eve
ning. In spite of the unfavorable night
a good number was present The first
spkaar was J. Paul Kaufman, a Yale
graduate of last year. He spoke- es
pecially on the stand of the Catholic
church and quoted from the. decision
of the Third plenary council, held In
Baltimore, also from Pope Leo X,
Archbishop Ireland and ethers. The
unequivocal utterances of these great
speakers is in favor of the aboliiton of
the drink traffic. .
Rev. W. T. Thayer spoke next say
ing, We must argue the question from
a financial point of view. The aver
age wage in 20 nO-Uconse cities in
Massachusetts is 74.9 per cent more
per year than in the license towns.
On the basis of 2,500 wage earners
in one town-their earning would be
3185,000 more per year under a steady
regime of no-license. In Ohio towns
and cities taxes are materially less
in no-license than In iloense com
munities, in Maine there are 163 in
mates of poorhouses' to 100,000 pop
ulation. . In Connecticut we have 256
to . 100,000. in the schools of Maine
173 . high schools to 700,000 popula
tion;- in Connecticut 77 high schools
and 908.000 populotiton. Two hundred
thousand more people in Connecticut
and 88 less schools. In Massachu
setts one. child In 64 . attends high
schools in license cities and towns.
In no-license cities and towns the ra
tio is 1 to 5,. In Connecticut we
have only one to 66; In Norwich one
to 70. That is to say, 130 boys and
girls of Norwich would be now in the
Academy but for the license system,
who are now obliged to work to help
support their families.
George -F. Hyde spoke of his rea
sons for Opposing the saloon. He had
nothing to say against the saloon
keeper. Down in their hearts they are
not satisfied with their business. I am
opposed to ' the 'saloon, he said, be
cause it is a menace to. society. It
