Chance to strike In that district. At the

playing, the management heard rumort
that a strike was contemplated, and et
8 o'clock seated fourteen non-union mea
in the orchestra. The audience sided with
the management and cheerfully applaud.

sawed away merrily, considering the fact
they 1 ud only a short rehearsal.
The Columbia Theatre manag-meat
said union musicians were ?till at work,
but it didn't matter anyway, as the houae
would clone to-night. At the Moulin
Rouge Frank Darling, once leader of the
muatdans who struck, played the plane,
while a loyal ?-omrade lustily pounded
the bass drum. It-was promised that on
Monday the orchestra would be tilled
