A conversation overheard between
two men convicted of stealing ?G9,r00 in
Liberty bonds last Mny has resulted
in evidence that the detectives say
will enable them to recover the $."3,000
in bouds still missing.
The bonds were stolen from the
Land Title nnd Trust Company. About
$10,500 worth of the securities were
rccocred. The two men calmly ac
cepted their sentences of from two years
to thirty months in the Kastern Peni
tentiary rnther than gain immunity by

The prisoners arc AVilliam Kilcy and

and that is the voice of the people con

In speaking of the suffrage question
Mrs. Catt said :
"The only thing that can keep us
from putting the federal amendment
through next time is some such demon
stration ns was put on in Washington
by members of the National Woman's
party last time."
Opposition to Militants
A decisive step against militancy to
win suffrage for women was urged
today by Sirs. Johu O. Miller, of Pitts
burgh, president of the Pennsylvania
Woman Suffrage Association, in her
nnnual nddress before the convention.
A large number of the members of
the suffrage association also are identi
fied with the National Woman's party.
This latter organization is militant. It
directed the picketing of the White
House nnd other aggressive tactics.
Mrs. Miller suggested that the con
stitution of the Pennsylvania Woman
Suffrage Association be amended so that
members must choose definite! between
militancy and more conservative action.
Membership in ore orgnni7iition would
he impossible if membership were held
in the other, according to the amend
ment suggested by Mrs. Miller. '
Urges Four State Organizers
Mrs. Miller further suggested that
four suffrage organizers be put into the
field in this state for "quiet, effeetivo
work.'' Three organizers are needed.
she says, outside this city nnd one for
Philadelphia She said a speakers' bu
reau should be creatrd, with headquai -ters
The convention was opened this
morning with an invocation by the Itcv.

Quebec Votes on "Dry" Issue
Montreal, Que,, April 10. Tho prov

referendum whether wine and beer li

Tho play progressed. Mils Lillian
Taylor, of 1310 East Airdrio street,
with tho assistance of Miss l.dna Irene
Wright, of 1224 Spruce street, nnd Miss
P.otty Lloyd, of 147 Hermitage street,
Mnnayunk, scattered themselves grace
fully about a stage fireplace and pre
pared to receive snd news.
Miss Taylor's b-brothcr was supposed
to havo had tho misfortune to appear
upon the army casualty list. Natural
like, tho neophytes in film drnma seemed
n littlo excited. They giggled fitfully.
They fumbled with their hauds.

"Have any of you any rcneou lo re
joice nt the brother's death?" demnnded
Mr. Gale, referring, of course, to the
fictitious brother of the movie scenario.
"Why why ' began Miss Lloyd.
"Then don't lnugh when jou hear
he is shot," growled Mr. Gale.
Mcantimc.lfrom the neophytes await
ing their turn, a hoarso voice was
heard. A jouug man with a forty-six
inch chest and n prognathous jaw was
confiding (or rather, bo thought ho was
confiding) to a bored friend that he was
no novice in the thcspian art.
"I been on t' stngo before, "he whis
pered in n whisper that rivaled Air.
"Where?" asked his friend wearily.
"I was a sccno shifter in N' Yoik,"
i onfided tho young man.
His autobiography was cut short.
A voune woman, who will some day
be a famous actress, went back of the
"set," ns tho scenery is called, nnd
attempted to enter the property door.
The door, true to the traditions of prop
erty doors, defied her. Whereupon,
being one of those modern young women
who do not propose to bo thwarted, sho
gripped the catch with one hand and
lifted the whole set from its base. A
little frightened, sho suddenly dropped
it, while the director raced around and
released tho catch, cro she began to
really get lough with his scenic effects.
Then came n bit of vamping, Miss

Gale. Iter hair was brushed flat back.
In her gaze was that mjstcrious some
thing that makes poor feeble men com
mit marital suicide, or tell long stories
to their wives about business trips out
of town, etc.
Director Gale was nil fixed to roar nt
her. She had come in on the wrong
side of the scene. But that eye van
There were all sorts of youug women
represented at the try-out of movie
talent. Two of the young stars of the
future were accompanied, a la Elsie

rather timcdly around, nnd seemed to
be more chaperoned than chaperoning.
At last Jhe scene ended. With a few
exceptions the candidates were accepted.

And Mr. Gale, with a final roar a
little bourse by now said "class dis
missed !" departing thence to bolster up
with needed nourishment.
Slowly nnd with dignity the Thcdas
and Marys and Maries gathered up
their wraps and temperaments and
glided toward the door. Their air com
bined with u certain hauteur with a
not unkind feeling- toward Director
"I guess he is pretty good," eaid
The others nodded gravely.
Already they were on the way to
becoming movie stars. They were be
ginning to size up the director.
ORIENTAL "CALLS" WILSON
Thinks Summons to George Wash

Captain Teh-yuen Lu, naval attache
to tho Chinese legation in Washington,
accompanied by Lieutenant Chu Fong
Ijin, assistant attache, is in Phila
delphia to look over this city's indus
trial establishments and shipyards.
They will go to Hog Island today.
"China feels more kindly toward
America than toward any other coun
try," said Captain Tch-yucn. "This
is quite natural, us many of our youths
have been and are being educated iu
America. I think the American peo
ple are well-disposed toward us nlso.
"We are in favor of tho league of
nations in China. If wo are admitted
to tho league it will be a good thing for
my country. It will then be impossible
for Japan to force upon us such arrange
ments as virtually take away a part ot
our sovereignty, as she did in 1015.
"I think President Wilson's sending
for the George AVashington is 'hot
air.' It is a bluff ou his part to hasten
the deliberations of "the Peace Confer
ence. How can ho carry it out when
tho conferenco is not yet ended?"
