Aguglia's performance is in Italian.
She carries a company of about 20
people. Later she is to do a con
densed version 6f"Elektra" and
some short Italian tragedies.
"The Herietta" has come back.
Mr. Veteran Playgoer, do you remem
ber Robsqn and Crane, in that amus
ing piece, which had its first per
formance in the fall of 1887? Good
show, wasn't it?
Bronson Howard, who wrote the
play, has departed these mortal
shores. So has Stuart Robson, who
gave a clever and lovable perform
ance as Bertie, the lamb. But the
comedy, rewritten and modernized,
as much as may be, and rechristen
ized "The New Henrietta," is play
ing at the Knickerbocker theater,
with Wm. H. Crane in his old part,
and Douglas Fairbanks taking Rob
son's place.
He takes it well, does Fairbanks.
His style is altogether, different from
that of his his predecessor, but he's
a magnetic and a talented young
actor and fully worthy of his co-star-ship
with Crane.
Amelia Bingham, Patricia Collinge
and other capable people are in the
cast, and "The Henrietta" looks
good for another whirl.
A big hit has been scored by "High
Jinks,". Arthur Hammerstein's new
musical show, at the Lyric Theater.
Elizabeth Murray "got over" no
strong that Hammerstein has signed
her for a five-year contract. Elaine
Hammerstein, daughter of Arthur
and granddaughter of Oscar, made
her stage debut in the piece and is
doing quite well.

Sympathizers of the Calumet strik
ers crowded four halls in which mass
meetings of protest were held yester
day afternoon. Resolutions have
passed censoring the mine owners for
the tactics they have resorted to
since the great strike began on
July 23.
Several prominent speakers ap
peared at all the meetings and as
sailed the roughneck methods of the
copper barons in importing gunmen
to break the strike. The grim trag
edy of Christmas Eve, when 72 chil
dren and 8 adults lost their lives, was
also gone into.
The meetings were held at the fol
lowing hallsj, Flener's Hall, 1638
North av.; Wicker Park Hall, North

John Walker said the recent inves
tigation into the shooting and de
portation at the hands of the Citi
zens' Alliance of Calumet was a farce
and a parody on justice.
All the speakers were confident
that the miners would eventually win
a great victory in Upper Michigan.
