Elsie Janis In The Fair Co-Ed."
The coming of Elsie Janis Is get
ting to be an event which divides in
terest, especially among the younger
tneatregoers, with the annual visit 01
Ethel Barrymore and Maude Adams.
Mr. Charles Dillingham's youngest
rand most radiant star will be seen in
an entirely new vehicle this season.
a comedy of college life, called "The
Fair Co-Ed" written by Mr. George1
Ade. with musical score by " Gustav
Luders. The piece had a tremendous
run In New York, and was obliged to
move from the Knickerbocker to the
Criterion Theatres to have Its season
out. Miss Janis comes to Jackson's
theatre this evening at the head of
practically the same superb cast
which participated In the original
presentation in New York city.
' John Philip Sousa, ' composer and
conductor, wno after remaining away
from Brlageport tor seven years will
I again appear here with his lamed
band organisation at Jackson's thea
tre for but one concert on next Tues
day evening, best displays his tire
less and never satisfied disposition by
I writing and arranging new and bit
ter compositions than his pleasingly
perfect productions of the past- Prin
cipal among his latest march com
positions is "The Fairest of the Fair."
nnd he is also ottering his newest
characteristic suite "People Who
Live in Glass Houses." The riew
works are said to embrace all of the
tuneful harmony and inspiring ac
tivity in his inimitable marches and
other numbers made internationally
famous in' the past. The Misses
Frances and Grace Hoyt, vocalists;
and Miss Florence Hardeman, violin
ist, are new comers " to local music
enthusiasts, but it may be said that
they are offered with an enviable re
putation for past endeavor. Herbert
L. Clarke, cornetist, is always wel
comed with the undaunted Sousa. Be
ing the first of the big .musical of
ferings or the season, it is expected
that the coming concert will be anx
iously awaited. The sale of seats

London. Dec It. OOn of "the
chief arguments used by the Conser

Liberals that the political agitation
by the latter is causing a collapse of
English industries, was punctured to
day by the report of the board of
trade, showing all branches of trade
except cotton spinning greatly im

month a year ago.
The cotton Industry, it la explained,
is suffering from a shortage In - the
American crop and not from politi

embarrassed the conservatives who
are now charging that 'it does -not
represent the true industrial condi

the Liberal campaign. .
Another situation that is causing
the Conservatives alarm ia a shortage
in speakers of note due to the fact
that some of the leading orators in
the party have been subjected to
rough treatment from hostile audi

were assaulted and attacked merci

Similar treatment has been accorded
other aristocratic speakers with the
result that the men upon whom the
Conservatives depended for speeches
have refused to take any part in the

Hartford. Dec M. A deposition of
President Samuel Gompers of -the
American Federation of Labor has
oeen read by Attorney Beach for the
defense in the boycott damage suit
brought by D. E. Loewe Co.. of
uanbury against Union hatters. it
relates to the duties and salaries ot
me traveling delegates of the American
Federation during strikes. In his tes
timony, as read. Mr. Gompers said
that the federation endeavored to set
tle strikes whenever possible. The
omcers or executive board never ini
tiated a strike or boycott as they had
no right to do so. .
The executive board had a right to
approve a strike, however, when it
was brought about by a union. Mr.
Gompers. ia his testimony, errphas s
ed the "good work" In which the
American Federation of Labor is in
terested, these included the bettering
of sanitary conditions In factories, of
sending out booklets relative to the
prevention of tuberculosis; promoting
industrial education: diffusing know.-
edge on sociological and historical
subjects relating to the country;
inculcating patriotism In the working
men of the United States to enable
them to rise higher in the social
Regarding the ' statements made
against the federation as being war
like ana its methods warlike, Mr. Gom
pers. made an emphatic denial saying
that if this charge were to be made
against the federation it might as well
be made against the government of
this country. In his testimony. Pres
ident Gompers said that no officer.
agent or delegate of the American
Federation of Labor had ever com
municated with the United Hatters
relative to instituting a strike or boy
cott against the Loewe factory and
mat tne name or the firm had never
been placed on any unfair list of the
American Federation or of the United

was called to the witness stand and
gave a history of the setablishment
of his business in IS97. In 1903 when
the strike was inauguarted the fac
tory represented an Investment of $150 -000.
He enlightened the Jury in the
details or hat making having a bun
dle of samples with him in tife court
room. He said that when the men
stopped work td go on the strike
there were 150 dozens hats left In
completed. He explained that It took
about ten days to put a hat through
the various processes. Today Mr.
Loewe resumed his testimony and he
will probably be on the witness stand
the remainder of the week.
