SEVEN MEN SUSPECTED Detectives Trail Conneis Eight Months. for Operative Lands Iron Worker After Low; Trail Escape to Canada Planned Accomplice Arrested Fol lowing Consultation witli Prose cntor Released on First Arrest for Lack of Evidence. Los Angeles, Cal., May 22. Two men are prisoners in the private chambers of District Attorney John D. Fredericks here to-night, and both of them are accused of enter ing a conspiracy to dynamite the million dollar Hall of Records building here on September 8, 1910. One of them is B. H. Conners, a former structural iron worker of this city, and the other is James Hendricks, who has been promi nently identified with the local strike situation here. SEVEN IMPLICATED. After the two men had been closely questioned bv Detective S. L. Broune, it was announced by District Attorney Fredericks that additional arrests would follow this evening. It is understood that seven men hae been implicated In the alleged plot to dynamite the build ing, and it Is charged that a woman. known to the authorities under the name of Miss Ross, will also be taken Into custody. For three months Chief DetectUe Sam uel Browne, of the district attorney's office and his men have been following Conners. and his arrest came to-day as he was making preparations to leave for Seattle. When told that he was wanted at the district attorney's office, Conners made an attempt to secape. The arrest of Hendricks camo only a few minutes after Conners was in the private office of the district attorney. Hendricks was found at his home, and when told that he was under arrest he made protestations of his innocence and denied that he knew Conners, and claimed that he knew- nothing of the alleged plot to destroy the Hall of Records, which Is being constucted here by the Llewellyn Iron Works, one of the companies which has fought the structural iron workers in this city. Conners Slugged Officer. When the alleged attempt was made to dynamite the structure, Conners was placed under arrest. He was found lurk ing near an entrance to the building, and when a policeman challenged him, Con ners struck the officer, and at that time made a temporary escape. He was then taken into custody and taken to the city Jail For several weeks Conners was held a prisoner, but no evidence was secured against him upon which a felony com plaint could be based. He was finally prosecuted, however, on a battery charge and was sentenced to fifty days in the city Jail on a charge of assaulting the policeman who had taken him into cus tody. After serving his sentence Conners left Los Angeles and for a time was em ployed at The Needles. He was located there by Detective Browne and an opera tive has been his constant companion since that time. Conners made no movement In this city that was not known to the District At torney, and to-day, when It was learned that he had planned to go to Canada, Brow no determined to arrest him. Late to-night District Attorney Fred ericks stated that he had called a special session of the grand Jury to -meet to morrow morning. Several of the suspects now under surveillance will be sum moned before this body and probably In dicted and arrested during the day. No additional arrests were made to-night.

FORGERY CASE Reeves Wood, a Telegrapher, Informs Detectives Thomas J. Wynn Told Him of Fleecing Company. Detectives Howlctt and Pratt yesterday afternoon arrested Reeves Wood, alias Reeves E. Hood, a telegrapher, at the MacLennan Hote 715 Thirteenth street northwest. In collection with the charge of forgery against Thomas J. Wynn, who is supposed to be in Canada. At police headquarters Wood was ques tioned concerning what he knew of the affair. He told Inspector Boardman that he met Wynn Jn F street, near Four teenth street, the day Wynn left Wash ington, about two weeks ago. He said Wynn told him his brother had given him 00 and asked him to go to Baltimore with him. Wood said he was accom AT LOCAL THE BELASCO. Stock Company In "Peter Pan." CAST. Feter Pan.

The Vagabonds, as the new stock com pany at the Belasco Theater have elected call themselves, made their bow to a goodly hot-weatner audience last even ing In Barrie's masterpiece of tender non sense, "Peter Pan." The selection of this fantasy imposed far greater responsibili ties upon players and stage management than the usual summer stock organiza tion is willing or able to assume. That the result was far from unsatisfactory is a tribute to the general ability of the players and the care displayed In the .staging of this aambltious undertaking. And yet it was not good Judgment to choose so delicately whimsical a play for popular presentation. The humor that lurks In nearly every crook and cranny of this play is too elusive, and the symbolism of Its fairy tale too subtle for general consumption. When that national Idol, Maude Adams, dowered the role of Peter with her maglo personality and sweet genius, this creation of the whimsical Scot was received apathetically by thousands in the hosts that flocked In merely because it was Adams. Your average American Is too busy feeding mouths and his fair partner too engrossed In the prosaic but necessary details of housekeeping to appreciate or even under stand Barrie's brief for the fairies. Peter Pan will live, however, even If he never grows up. He Is as Immortal as his cousin Alice. But It will not be the sum mer stock company that will keep him alive. Miss Adams probably will revivify the role before long; but when she has passed Into the ever-ever land, Peter will have to make his home in a book to be read by children of all ages and for all ages. To be sure, our British cousins have made of Peter Pan an annual habit. Once every winter he Is called upon to lead the Darling children through their marvelous adventures In Never-Xever Land. The English may not have the same Idea of humor that we delight to call American, but tliey are tenacious of their fun and, unlike us, once they ap preciate a Joke, they like to hear it over and over again. Mrs. Hopkins was the Peter Pan last night. She gave a most creditable per formance, brimming with light Jojousness and youthful charm, slightly less effect ive In the more serious moments. Her husband, Charles Hopkins, played two parts, Mr. Darling and tho redoubtable CnpL Hook, chief of the pirates, he who dreads the approach of the crocodile whose presence Is always foreshadowed by the ticking of the clock, upon which hf had once lunched hastily and none too satisfactorily. Mr. Hopkins gave the part of Darling its proper farcical touch, and as Hook could not have been im proved upon. As leading woman and man, the Hopkines gave promise of many highly enjoyable performances this sum mer. The Mrs. Darling of Florenco Hunt ington gave this excellent actress little to do, but that little was pleasantly done. The other grown-ups in the cast ap peared mainly as pirates, and we shall have to await their resumption of more human physlolgoical aspects before identi fying thesm. A more gorlsh-looklng band of child-eating mariners never was seen. Vera Fuller Mellish and Gertrude Augarde are the two grown-ups who played children, and it Is only charitable to defer further comment until they are seen In parts suitable to their years. The work of the real kiddies was commend able In each particular. Margaret Shel by, as the tiny Michael, was Just too cute for anything, and Imogen Fairchild, who made her professional debut at Tootles, gives promise of a successful future. At the conclusion of the performance Mrs. Hopkins, as sponsor for tho Vaga bonds, recited the following epilogue: Dear friends, the curtains down, the play is done; Our little, mimic web of life is spun. Yet rue a moment e'er you go, and hear Our thanks for all the pleasure and good cheer Your kind applause has brought us. Would 'twere true That you like us as much as we like you I We're called the "Vagabonds" long years ago Shakespeare and his gay comrades were called so. The deathless poet took up the word of shuns And piped it with immortal song to fame. Thorn days an dead, yet are we strollers still; Come! Will you follow us? For if you will Well lead you through the magic paths that weare In and about the Land of Make-bcUtre. Now on Its steamer slopes adrentiiricg. Now in its pleasant yalleys lingering. And take this message with you. for 'tis true; II we arp Vagabonds, It's all for you. THE COSMOS. An enjoyable bill of refined vaudeville specialties was seen at the Cosmos last night In which the Three O'Connor Sis ters presented a singing and dancing turn that found Instant favor. An In teresting and humorous satire on modern society and married life Is offered by Selma Walt rs and Herbert Frank In "A. Woman's Way."' 'Ashbom's animals, a dog, pony, and goat circus proved to be one of the best-trained collections of animals seen here this season, their clever performance being a welcome di version to the little ones. Madeira Shone, billed as the Jolly Bis Girl, has a clever monologue and. two funny songs. She was easily the coroedr hit of th hilt. The Stilsons, comedy clown -acrobats and ueurci jumpers, ana- lawreBc Raden, panied by J. E. Du8k!n, another teleg rapher, and the trio went to Baltimore. Before going Wood said .that Wynn paid him $25 he had borrowed from him last February when he (Wynn) was mar ried in Rockvllle. Wood accompanied the pair tq Balti more and on the way over he says that Wynn told him he had "bunkoed" the Western Union Telegraph Company out of a sum of money. Wood did not think this was possible, and told him so. When the trio reached Baltimore Wood was separated from the other twq and, after trying to find them for several hours, re turned to Washington. Wood is detained at the First precinct station. THEATERS. THE COLUMBIA. "A AVomnn'a Way." The Cclumbla Players could hardly have chosen a better vehicle for the entertain ment of a summer night's audience than Thomas Buchanan's comedy, "A Wom an's Way." The comedy Is so acute and continuous as to effectually relieve the mind of the depressing effects produced by the humidity. The capacity audience of last night, at least, seemed to bo so entirely engrossed in the theme and so merry over the situations as to be com pletely oblivious to all else. The play Is not all comedy, either, for there is a serious lesson Involved. A woman finds her husband, whom she truly loves, slipping away from her, the case being brought to a focus at the be ginning of the play by an automobile ac cident, threatening a scandal and proba ble divorce. Sho resolves to make a fight for his affections, and Invites the woman In the case to her house with all the rela tives on cither side present. It develops that the aforesaid woman In tho case had previously had an affair with nearly all the men present, and a series of remark ably laughable compllcatlor ensue, to the end that the womanly tact of the wife wins out. and her husband fore swears all future Indiscretions. The play Is admirably acted, with Miss Neilson as the wifo and Mr. Van Btiren as the husband forming tho axis around which evprythlng revolves. Both were cast in congenial roles and both took ad vantage of every opportunity. There are spokes In the wheel of merriment, how ever. Including Emelie Melville, as Mrs. Livingstone, a dowager role quite suited to her; Cora Thatcher, as Mrs. Blake more, "the woman;" Frederick Forrest er, as Oliver Whitney; George W. Bar bler, as Gen. Livingstone; Everett Butter fleld, as Bob Livingstone; Jessie Glen dinning, as Sallie Livingstone: Marie Ralston, as Mrs. Stanton; Mlr.a Melville, as Mrs. Belle Morris: John Kline, as Ned Morris: Arthur Ritchie, as Mr. Lynch, and Stanley James, as Wilson, the butler. In the case of the last men tioned. It Is timely to comment the uni form excellence of his character acting. His impersonations are always true to type and presented with finish; THE CASINO. The vaudeville programme at the Ca sino this week Is one of the best seen at that house this season, without any especial head-line act, all the enter tainers coming under tho feature head ing. The bill was opened by the St. Lows, introducing a clever youngster. aged about (He years, who dressed as a college youth, sang a duet with young lady, a solo by the boy paving the way for the stage to be set with a trapeze, on which the feminine part o the team appeared In a most graceful acrobatic exhibition. Tho next number was Peplno, who made a hit with his playing on the concert accordion. James Kcane & Co. appeared in a comedy sketch, in which a strolling actor, stranded in Mexico, gives out to a wealthy uncle In New York that he Is captured by bandits and wants a large sum for ransom with which sum he In tends to spend marrying a Mexican si gnorita. Cameron and Marker, come dians, sang and talked nonsense, one dressed as Harry Lauder and the other as a British Tommy. Whitman Broth ers, contortionists, presented a novel act, the bill closing with a dainty of fering by Mucther and Davis, who ap peared In five or six changes of cos tumes and sang catchy songs. THE GAYETY. "Follies of Xcw York and Paris." Although the weather man was a bit unkind, the audience enjoyed themselves to their fullest extent at the Gayety last evening. The Follies of New York and Paris is practically the same show we witnessed before, except for a few changes In the cast. It was with pleas ure we welcomed our friend, Jennie Aus tin. This young lady Is without a doubt the one best bet. In her song numbers, namely, "I'll Build a Fence Around You" and "Baby Blue Eyes," she was encored repeatedly. Harry Woods has the prin cipal comedy part and scored heavily. Harvey Green, Murry Belmont, Frank Hayes, and Henry Nelson formed the re mainder of the male part of the princi pals. Anna faults, Flo Zella, Mildred Man tel!, and Nora Davis the female con tingent. The work of the Alpine Quar tet was enjoyed, as were the Eight Eng lish Roses. In their specialty dance. The show Is a pleasing one, the songs being catchy and the chorus work excellent.

His first day as a member of the Cabinet was short and crowded. He did not stay on the Job long, however, for he left Washington at 4 o'clock to return to New York. Mr. Stimson reached Washington early yesterday morning. He first visited the White House, accompanied by Senator Root and Representative Dwlght. After chatting with the President for a short time, he w ent over to the War Deparment to be Inducted Into office. He met Gen. Dickinson, the retiring Secretary, who escorted him Into his new office. The oath was administered by John B. Ran dolph, chief of the record division of the War Department. His commission was delivered by J. C. Schofield, assistant chief clerk of the department. Mr Dick inson, Assistant Secretary of War Robert Shaw Oliver. MaJ. Gen. Leonard Wood, Chief of Staff; Senator Root, and Repre sentative Dwlght witnessed the ceremony. In the meantime all the ofllcers on duty in the War Department had assembled in the oflice of the Chief of Staff. They were In uniform, and many of them wore white duck trousers. They were presented to Secretary StlmEon by Mr. Dickinson. After the army officers had paid their respects, the civilian employes of the department were Introduced. The new Secretary then began work. He completed a draft of a speech in advocacy of Canadian reciprocity, which he will deliver before tho Intercolonial Club, of Boston, to-morrow night. He Is not ex pected to return to Washington before next week. Mr. Dickinson, the retiring Secretary, accompanied oy Mrs Dickinson, called at the White House In the afternoon to pay their respects before leaving for Nash ville, Tcnn. SUMMER CAPITAL SITES PLENTIFUL Three other places besides Wayrata. on Lake Mlnnetonka, In Minnesota, have entered into the competition to be desig nated as the summer headquarters of the President of the United States. A delegation from Michigan called at tho White House yesterday to picture to Mr. Taft the beauties of Macklnao Island. Representative Austin, of Tennessee, spoke a kind word for Bald Knob, a lofty elevation In tho Smoky Mountains of his State. A man on one of the Thousand Islands In the St. Lawrence has offered the President a. site for a summer on his particular island if Mr. Taft "will con struct a building thereon." According to letters and telegrams received at the White House, other resorts Intend to en ter the lists. The delegation that plans to come from Minneapolis to tell the President all about the good points to Mlnnetonka will get a cordial reception. The Michigan delegation, which spoke yesterday in be half of Mackinac Island, left the White House very much encouraged. The President's eyes glistened as he listened to the rhapsodies indulged by the Mich' igan men over the Mackinac Island golf course. The chances are that tho President will visit Mackinac Island this summer for a brief stay. Representative Austin waxed enthu siastic over Bald Knob. It was so high In the air that fresh breezes blew there at all hours of the day and night, he said. The people of Bald Knob also had a house available that they would give over to the President's use. The Presi dent thanked Mr. Austin for the good intentions of his constituents. Mr. Taft wrote a letter acknowledging the offer of the man on the Thousand Islands. In the meantime Wayzata Is on the ground floor. It got its bid In first, and there Is good reason to believe that when the President goes West to Mackinac Island he will extend his trip to Lake Mlnnetonka. Representative Nye will formally bring to the attention of Congress this week the bid of Wayzata to be designated the summer headquarters of Presidents. He will Introduce a bill donating a desirable site at Wayzata, overlooking the lake. William Henry Eustls, of Minneapolis, was at the White House yesterday. He ir rjjF9KBBilslslsrllllr TTiPPir THE PITCHER. ' Th aslsThtjr pltcbtr , e sWMy nsjaxja a- said that if the President and Congress approved Wayzata would donate a home as well as a site. As . practical propo sition the government frequently selects sites for buildings to be used for public purposes, but rarely has It accepted a building. For that reason the Nye bill will provide an appropriation for a Presi dent's residence at Wsyzata on a site to be donated by the town. SOCIETY HONORS J. H. DICKINSON The Southern Society of Washington paid tribute last night to Its first presi dent, J. M. Dickinson, former Secretary of War, at Its final meeting before the summer vacation at the Confederate Memorial Hall, 1322 Vermont avenue northwest, by adopting resolutions of profound regret that he Is leaving Wash ington and thanking him for his faithful services. A committee, composed of Lawrence Washington, Milton W. Johnson, and Dr. Gustavus Werber, was appointed to con vey the resolutions to Mr. Dickinson, and request him to allow his name remain as president of the society until next fall, when new officers will be elected. Slakes Cloqnent Address. Senator Thornton, of Louisiana, who was elected a vice president of the so ciety last night, presided, and Introduced Representative Thomas Upton Sisson. who made an eloquent address on the history of the South, tie paid a grand tribute to fhe patriotism of Its people and said they did their full share In purchasing the flag of our country with their blood, and praised the work of Andrew Jackson's riflemen in Kentucky and Tennessee. BUI Philips' long ride from Washington to the South to inform Gen. Jackson that war had been, declared with Eng land In 1S12 was mentioned as a deed of valor that had never been properly re corded. Other facts mentioned were that Thomas Jefferson started the cultiva tion of wheat in this country by bring ing it over from France secreted In his clothing, and that he also brought rice from Italy and started Its cultivation In South Carolina. Mr. Sisson said that in 1860 all the tax able property in the United States was listed as r2.000.000.000. and that half of this amount was listed against the South. The musical programme Included vocal solos by Mrs. Nellie Shlr-Cllff, readings by Percy C. Bowen, and piano selections by John Porter Lawrence. Two Already Selected. By constitutional amendment the so ciety will have a vice president represent ing each Southern State. Champ Clark and Senator Thornton are the only vice presidents yet selected.
