He heard that Jimmy Coffroth was after the team, and offered to put the coin into the 1 i. j. x Rudy Unholz would probably be given the lunch concession in the event the pugilistic crowd secured control. ' Snowy Baker, the Australian fight promoter, has offered Jack Britton '? 6,000 and 30 per cent of the gross receipts for five fights in Kangaroo land. Britton is holding out 'for a larger guarantee. o o MIKE HURLEY THE HEADLINER IN POLICE VAUDEVILLE Eight girl pickets were arrested in front of Henrici's last night by Offi cers Kerker, Wolfe and Hurley. These sand other officers tried to live up to their recently-acquired deputation as vaudeville stars and Mike Hurley, as usual, occupied the center of the- stage. Mike seems to have taken seriously our description of him as handsome and spends his time posing and waving his plub. To save Mike from the fall that comes after pride, we wish to say we were oniy joshing him when we called him liandsome, but we back up our state ment that-he is the most zealous cop per on the beat when it, comes to ar resting the girl pickets and always leads the performance. ' Minnie Meyer, who has been ar A rested, several times by Officer Wolfe, says Wolfe has always treated her courteously and" in a gentlemanly manner, which might be a good tip for some of the other cops. The amount of the bond now re quired on a disorderly charge, the only one under which the girls can be arrested according to latest or ders from headquarters, has. been raised from $200 to $400. The sum of $120,000 has already been put up for bonds to release girls arrested through the zeal of the coppers pro tecting the interests of Henrici's and the Restaurant Keepers' Association and paid their wages by the city. We were amused to note a happen ing last night near Henrici's, which caused sudden blindness on the part of the plain-clothes officers near by. Some theatrical people wandered from the Rialto on to Randolph street. In the middle of the street the man dropped bis bundle with a slam to the sidewalk and jumped into the air in what we thought was an epilep tic fit. Then he bounced forward seven or eight steps and clutched a man around the neck. The three of them stood in the middle of the pavement so that every one had to pass around them and they chatted for five minutes. But the plain-clothes men who con stantly arrest girl pickets for mere ly walking up and down the street and in no way blocking the traffic, never saw the loiterers, though five of the officers were standing at close range. Which makes us suspicious that their eyesight is bad except when they arrest girls, intoxicated men and men who look as though they might be workers and therefore sympath ies with the strikers. Mps. Raymond Robins, president ,of the National Woman's Trades Un ion League, and Miss Mary Xnderson of the Chicago Women's Trade Union League picketed for a short while, but were not disturbed by the coppers. o o WOULD UNITE CLOTHERS The Tailors' Industrial Union Inter national, affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, will start a cam paign to bring all workers in the clothing industry into one body at a big meeting to be held at the Hull House Smith's Hall, Halsted arid' Polk streets, Sunday afternoon, March 8. o 6- In London, a prison just for women I exists.
