Cleveland, Oct. 16. The tango is
on trial for its hfe. It was brought
into court yesterday when the suit
of Asa Anderson, a dancing teacher,
asking for an injunction against the
order of Chief of Police Howe and
City Dance Hall Inspector Meyers
that the tango pould not be taught
here, came up for a bearing.
Incidentally, the court is being en
tertained with excellent exhibitions
of the tango, which the judge was
compelled ,to admit js "certainly
graceful." Then the city came back
in rebuttal with1 exhibitions of latest
wiggles in bunny-hugs, grizzly-bear,
etc., all step-sisters of the tango;
The fate of the tango is not yet
decided, but the officials admit that
the county has been tangoed oat of
$1,000 worth of labor during the
hearing of the case; as work at" the
courthouse is at a standstill.

New York, Oct. 16. Bishop
Franklin Spencer Spalding of Utah,
m aemanaing tnat me cnurcn join in a
thfi mnvpment fnr industrial dfimon- JI
racy, annoyed his fashionable au
dience to such an extent that many
of them left before he finished his ad
dress. The bishop declared the pres
ent Episcopal convention a "capital
istic convention."
"I hate this system which gives to
the greedy and takes from the
meek," he declared. "It is unchris
tian and ungodlike. The-system must
be ended. The church must awake,
and the church must ally herself
with the movement for industrial
. "The men who attend this con
vention made their jnohey from
profit, interest and rent. They care
not how they get it. They have not
a particle of feeling for the workmen
beneath them. The wealth of this
cquntry is created by the laboring
classes, yet they are suffering untold
tortures from poverty. They do not
get the wealth. In this country 74
per cent of the population own but
4 per cent of the wealth. That shows
where it goes.
"If the church is supported by
profits, the worker knows that it is
supported by that which is taken
from him. He is forming his own
Teligion away from the capitalistic
religion, just as he is forming his own
political party away from the capital
istic parties.
"We ought to accept the truth
which the industrial democracy
movement is trying to teach the
world. The worker must be reward
ed on the basis of what he renders."
