Church ETSTER TA iyHIElflS. Hyperion Theater All lovers of epera, comic opera and musical plays who attend the produc tion ol "Cloverdell" at the Hyperion theater next Wednesday evening will pass their judgment upon a musical Batlre after the style of Gilbert and Sul livan in "Cloverdell," the very latest venture into the theatrical world. The plot of "Cloverdell" Is logical and con sistent. In fact, t Is recognized as the pioneer In the Inevitable return to the era of "Sense and Sanity" In lighter musical entertainments. Its comedy appeals to Intelligence, yet Is neither abstruse nor dull; Its lyrics are insist ently rhythmic, although never trivially tinkling; and Its music, while consist ently operatic. Is always melodious and possesses a pastoral quality of irresist ible charm. Mr. Barnabee, of Bostonlan fame, Is featured as the star In the role of the (Secretary ' of agriculture. That Mr. Barnabee is still a warm favorite was shown by. the reception given him Sat urday night. Seats now selling. THE TRANCOSd TRAIL. Tyrone Power, who plays the role of Augustus Dexter in "The Trancoso ITrall," which will be at the Hyperion theater next Friday evening, was a dis tinguished member of the companies of lr Henry Irving, Berbohn Tree, Mrs. Flske, Mrs. Leslie Carter and others. In "The Trancoso Trail'.' he is said to ihave the most Intensely dramatic role of his career. Mr. Power and Henry ifewett play opposite roles, and others n the cast are Marie Walnwright, Ma Ibel Tallferro, Claire Kulp, Nina Her bert, Orme Caldara and others equally Veil known. . I THE EDUCATION OF MR. PIPP. Helen Tracy, who plays the part of lra. Pipp, the domineering wife, with Digby Ball In "The Education of Mr. PiPP.". which comes to the Hyperion theater next Saturday evening, is an actress of rare accomplishments. She has for years been leading woman to eome of the foremost stars of the day. As Mrs. Pipp dhe has achieved the greatest success. She is the counter part of Gibson's Mrs. Pipp. New Haven Theater. The greatest success of the present theatrlca.1 season comes to the New Haven theater to-night, for three nights end Wednesday matinee, In A., H. Woods' magnificent production, "Queen of the White Slaves." The author, Ar thur J. Lamb, opens the play In a con cert hall In San Francisco, and the Bcenes which follow, the Palace hotel In that city, a street scene, a superb resi dence overlooking the harbor of the "Golden Gate," the cabin and deck of an ocean steamship, a detective adrift on a raft In the middle of the Pacific, and three scenes of a mandarin's palace (n Hong Kong give ample opportunity for the most lavish scenic expenditure ever attempted. The story of the play is written in fcuch an incisive and soul-stirring style that the attention of the auditor Is irre sistibly held from the rising of the cur tain until Its final fall. Mr. Lamb's characterizations in "Queen of the White Slaves" are particularly strong, those calling for especial mention being James Wendell, a detective; "Smoke Pot," a quaint negro; Ralph Grimes, an agent of the Highbinders; Fong Low, a Chinese- mandarin; Charles Fawn, a victim of the opium habit; Maggie Mur phy, .a flower girl; Mustang Mattie, a dupe of Grimes; Grace Fawn, "Queen of the White Slaves," and twenty other subsidiary characters. The scenic production of "Queen of the White Slaves" is described as being magnificent and attention given to the Oriental costumes, they having been imported. GAT NEW YORK. That the centralization of clever ar tists in every department of musical comedy has wielded a mighty influence In guiding the destinies of "Gay New York," which comes to the New Haven theater next Thursday, Friday and Sat urday nights, cannot be gainsaid when the reputations of the comedians and eingers engaged in this whirligig of melody and merriment are considered. For Instance, such consummate come dians as Dan Mason, Edward B. Ad ams, Joseph F. Willard, Charles E. Foreman, Edward Brennan, in conjunc tion with many others of genuine re nown, and such distinguished lady ce lebrities as Louise Sanford, Lillian Hoerlein, Kathryn Bartlett, augmented by no less than a half score more of famous vocalists and dancers, all occu py positions of exceptional prominence In this offering of many-sidod fun and melody' merit. This marvelous collection of headline talent is furthermore aided and abetted by a bunch of feminine loveliness said to outclass in ability as well and to disport a succession of gown fads and fancies jthat are simply incomprehensi ble, so far as splendor Is concerned. "Gay New York," thus equipped and with a long and prosperous Berlin run preceding its successful American ex ploitation and with its pretentious scenlo effects, is surely to be, depended upon for an entertainment of no ordi nary kind. .. . Nothing mora convincing regarding the general value of an entertainment purpose could be desired than the un conditional praise that has been meted out to "Gay New York" In the press reports which have' reached here. In variably the aim of these writers has been to make the novelty charm of this musioal comedy stand out In 'bold re He. This verdict has undoubtedly been reached owing to the engagement of a well defined story of fun complications that gives to the structure a coheslve ness which is lacking in most amuse ment ventures, where street Is laid up on the singing and other features. Mat nce Saturday. Poll's Jfew Theater. Manager Poll's offering this afternoon will be a three-feature bill composed of the best headliners in the business. A European sensation heads the aggrega tion the Little Black Man, the East Indian who has been all the rage all over the circuit. This unjquo act has crowded every vaudeville ' house that has played him. He is a distinct nov elty in vaudeville, and was imported from Europe for a limited American tour. His ring performance outshines any previous attempts in this fine. The second feature is to be McWat ters, Ty3on and company, with' their laughable and elaborate offering, "Vau deville. Mr. McWatters gives a comical Impersonation of Herrmann the Great, and some of the song numbers will In clude "Dream on" and "I am a Bach elor." ' v The third feature will be the famous Ellinore sisters, with their specialty number. They have of late been with "Mrs. Delaney of Newport," and made an enormous success. By special per mission of Manager Hyde they will ap pear for one week only at Poll's while another big comedy number is being prepared for them. ' The olio Is abundantly provided with pood acts, including Marie Dupont and her Company, which Includes Willard Hutchinson, in the comedy "Left at the Post." This farce bubbles oyer with laughing hits. " The Italian Trio of singers, In snatches from grand opera; Miss Jo sephine Davies, with her comedy num ber, and Coutere and Gillette, with their acrobatic act, will complete the olio. The electrograph will have a special series of pictures entitled "The Night Before Christmas" as the closing num ber on the lengthy bill.

With his gradation from the United States Naval academy at Annapolis set for to-day, Frank Hamilton Roberts of this city, eon of Dr. and Mrs. F. P. Roberts, waa yesterday arrested at the academy on orders of Secretary of the Navy Bonaparte, under a charge of hazing. Roberts was to have finished his course to-day, and so would have become an officer In the navy at the age of twenty, but this arrest will prevent him getting his diploma at present. The offense for which -'Roberts is held oc curred last fall. Two of his classmates are in the same predicament, Arthur A Garcelon, of Auburn, Me., and William P. Hayes, of LoulBvllle, Ky. A court-martial has been set for to morrow, but no definite action Is look ed for until the congressional commit mittee, appointed Friday, has reported on conditions at Annapolis. ' This will cause consldrablo dbtiay in Roberts' plans and may Iwterfero with the re alizing of hla ambition to get an ap pointment to the Ibattleshop Connect icut. . ! ' Dr. and Mrs. Roberts with their ditughter, Hazel Lavlnla Roberts, and nlk?e, Maud Lines Hamilton, of Merl den, went to Annapolis Thursday to'at tend the graduating exercises to-day. The matter came as a considerable surprise, as It was thought there was no danger of such action in connection with Roberta- Roberts was the Invent or what was called "the human auto mobile," which was considered a harm less prank. In the trial 1 of Midship man Miller, also a member of the graduating class, who was ordered to be dlsmussed, and was pardoned by President Roosevelt, Roberts was g witness. Out of this arose the charges against him. The hazing system as practiced at Annapolis is as old as the Institution. The pranks exercised are said to be a very mild form of hazing, and more humorous than harsh. "The human au tomobile Is described as a very lu dicrous Invention, and created much amusement among those who heard of It. Frank Roberts Is a graduate of the New Haven public schools, and was a member of the class of 1903 at Hill house High school. While In school he was very popular, being a member of Delta chapter, Theta Sigma fraternity, and president of the debating society. He left In 1902 to take the appointment ait Annapolis. Roberts Is but twenty years of age, and is one of the young est members of the graduating clans. t 'km Where Baking Begins Right The baking of the NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY begins with right material, and every step there after, through the whole process of baking is right. There is not one point of quality that care, skill and modern bakeries could make better. It is perfection itself through and through. It Ends Right when it reaches your table untouched by strange hands, untainted by odors. The quality, oven-flavor and freshness are preserved in a dust and moisture proof package, distin guished by the trade mark here shown. It always appears in red and white on each end of the package and warrants the perfect condition of the contents.

I Iff p 11 f n 2 GRAND ; DORSCHT CONCERT to PLAHS FOR, THE TWENXY-FIRST A A'A'I VER SA R F. Looks Now as If the Event Would be tbe Most Succeiwfiil of Any In His tory of the Famous Organization- Appearance of Mlas Louise Stannard, Child Virtuoso. Chairman Louis Felsberg of thft special committee, which has In charge the arrangements for the twenty-first anniversary concert of Dorscht lodge at the New Hawn theater next Sunday evening, returned from New York Sat urday, after making complete arrange ments there for some twenty musicians to augment the local orchestra. The decision to make the anniver sary concert one of the regular series has proved very popular, and a bril liant result Is assured both from the standpoint of music and attendance. As a proof of this, applications for seats are already coming in, and the managers announce that they will be filed and later filled in order of their receipt. " ";:' I1 As to the concert Itself thera can be no doubt that It will be one of the most Entertaining in the history of the Dorscht musical events. The appear ance of Louise Stannard; the child flute virtuoso. Is In itself an event of rare importance. It has been many years since a child of her ability and years has appeared as a soloist on a stage In this city. It is a great credit to Dorscht lodge to bring her out, and as great a suc cess is expected as when little Hattie Scholder made her debut under Dorscht auspices, and created such a furore that Herr Conreid, the noted New York conductor, becoming Interested In her apparently brilliant future, sent her to Europe to study under the lead ing teachers of the pianoforte. Little Miss Staannard Is a New Haven child, the pupil of Fred Guilford. This will be her first appearance dn public, and it is looked forward to with keen-interest. Another brilliant feature of the an niversary concert will be the appear ance of Herr Pelsehel of the Metropol itan orchestra, New York, and William Hegel of this city, who will p'ay the new compositions, "The Elephant and the Fly." In this selection will be heard the "long and short" of the reed lnstrument-4he bassoon and the piccolo. HELP FOR THE BLIND MAN. The Adklns fund stood at about $206 at 6 o'clock Saturday night.

A list of the , givers will appear dur ing the week. NEW HAVEN CASE. Scheduled for United States Court at Hartford To-Morrow.
