Wilton Lackaye Gennett. It is an easy manner to understand the success which has greeted Wilton Lackaye in his new play, "The Law and the Man, since It is founded on Victor Hugo's celebrated work, "Les Miserables." It will be recalled that the book plays upon every human emotion, and shows the dual nature of man. It is one of the most thril ling and emotional things in which Mr. Lackaye has been seen; his role of Jean Valjean being the antithesis of Svengali. Mr. Lackaye is under the management of Wm.

A REPORTER THREE ARRESTED FOR THE FAILURE Are Charged with Wrecking Real Estate Trust Com pany at Philadelphia. AGED CLERK EXCULPATED ACCUSED WERE EXPECTING AR REST AND WAIVED SERVICE OF WARRANTS PRESBYTERI AN CHURCH MAY LOSE;, IPuMlshers' Press Philadelphia, Sept. 5. District At torney Bell, who is Inyestlgating the looting of the Real Estate Trrst "com pany, which failed a week ago,, warrants issued for the arrest of three men. 1 c6nnecJedT"w1th he.cbi&psp '.of the .institution. They are Adolph Segal, the promoter of many enter prises, who borrowed more than $5,- 000,000 from the company on insuf- cient collateral; William F. North, treasurer of the Real Estate Trust company; Marshall S. Collinwood, as sistant treasurer. This turn In the affairs of the com pany is only one of the many sensa tions expected to develop in connec tion with the failure, which it is esti mated will exceed $10,000,000 before the receiver finishes his Investigation. The warrants contain charges of conspiracy, embezzlement and false returns to the state banking depart ment. The latter charge will not be brought against Segal, as he had no official connection with the company. The affidavits for the warrants were furnished by a depositor creditor of the trust company. North arrived at the trust company building, accompanied from his home to the office by a friend, ready to go on his bond. Segal, North and Collingwood waiv ed the formal service of the warrants. Segal's bail was fixed at $25,000 and that of North and Collingwood at $10,000 each. Horace Hill, the auditor, who is 75 years old and broken in health, will not be arrested. District Attorney Bell says he was merely a figurehead and a tool used by the looters. Hill, who passed the bogus lists of wildcat securities by which Hip pie threw millions into Segal's hands, confessed that he had warned Hip pie a year ago of impending ruin, and that the president promised to re form. He said he had taken his word for It;, and tried to save the suicide. No other arrests are expected at this time, and the "divers other per sons" mentioned in the warrants was inserted for the purpose of covering any other persons who afterward may be implicated in the collapse of the trust company. Adolph Segal, who is looked on as the principal in the failure of the in stitution, had nothing to say after his arrest. He contented himself by re ferring all persons to his attorneys. Segal is a promoter of many enter pises in this city, and thoughout the state of Pennsylvania. To carry on his operations, he borrowed, Earle says, more than $5,000,000 for which he gave to Hippie the -only man he dealt with, securities that were insuf ficient. It was at first believed that Hippie did not benefit by his dealings with Segal, but later developments showed that he was deep in the schemes of Sesal, and a partner in some of his companies, i Since the failure Segal has repeat edly;declared that all his transactions were regular, that he has not commit ted an unlawful act and that he is able to repay the trust company all the money he borrowed. In a recent interview he declared that he is a speculator in "bricks, mortar and ma chinery," that he dealt in material things and did not make his money by reading the stock ticker tape. Logan Bullitt, millionaire coal oper ator and candidate for congress from the Fifth district, has served formal notice on Receiver Earle that, unless he at once began proceedings to es tablish the liability of the directors to pay each depositor in full, he would begin civil and criminal suits. Mr. Bullitt said he intended to get every cent of his money back, and that he thought that forty-eight hours was ample notice to the receiver. It now looks like the general as sembly of the Presbyterian church will lose a great portion of the $963, 000 tniif ft-ve hn Tv- this company OPPOSED TO HER PARDON Ex-Judge Wing Threatens to - Have Cassie Chadwick Returned to Pen if She Tries to Get Out.

THE TIDY TADPOLE."" Sw ThU Cheerful Little Cannibal Emtm and Develops. A wonderful spirit of tidiness seems to pervade the tadpole world. They always eat whatever has become use lesstheir own eggs, their superfluous companions. Even those who are only weakly are cleared out cf the way and the victims take it all as a matter of course. I have disturbed a strong member of the community just as he had begun to dine off the tall of a weaker brother, but the sufferer has not troubled to escape he simply wait ed till the fratricide returned to com plete his deadly work For some time there Is no 1 grave change in the tadpoles. They simply grow and become so far transparent that their iaternal mechanism, which consists of one coil of Intestines, Is plainly visible. When, however, they are about three months old a careful observer cri distinguish a tiny foot on either side of the base of the tail, These grow slowly, but seem unable to move Independently until shortly before the border land is passed which leads to perfect froghood. The hind legs have reached their full size before the front ones appear, and, while the feet grow slowly, the hands are ready made and can be used at once. For a day or two they can be seen under the skin before they venture forth, and their possessor is very restless and ex cited. He rushes madly about, jost ling his comrades, and no doubt being roted a bore; then a more vigorous ef fort breaks the skin and the tiny hand and arm appear. There seems some rule about the order of precedence here, as there Is when the whiskers go, for last year my tadpoles, almost without exception. had their right hands some hours be fore the left, while on previous occa sions I have had an entirely left handed crew.

Dwight Elmendorf, the famous trav eler, told recently of some nautical terms that he overheard on the North river, New York. That they are a new brand and that their use is restricted to that class of seagoing liners known as "Jersey ferry boats" cannot be doubted. "About two weeks ago," said Mr. Elmendorf, T went over from Jer sey City. The tide was running rather strong In the river and our pilot missed his mark at Twenty-third street. In some way our boat got wedged almost at right angles in the ferry slip. Of a sudden we heard the sonorous voice of the pilot as he bellowed to the rousta bouts on the dock to 'Heave a line.' Aye, aye, sir!' came back from the dock, followed by the query, 'Which aide der yer want de line on, de uptown r downtown side? " SHORT STORIES.
