7: PARIS,' Aug. The twenty-four
hour general strike with which the
city is threatened tomorrow is the sole
topic of conversation In Paris tonight.
■> While ' there are no signs of panic,
such as preceded the May day mani
testations in 1906, considerable anxiety
and Indignation prevail in the public
mind. - The press, almost without ex
ception, reprehends the intolerant be
havior of the revolutionary section of
the ' general labor organization and
urges on the government the sup
pression of it as the only means of
removing what it declares is a grow
ing menace to society.
' The authorities are confident they
. have the situation well in hand. In
: addition to the large police force of
Paris, the regular garrison numbers
26,000 men, and this force, it is held,
Ib ample to assure order. The troops
all have been confined to barracks so

• Early , today bill stickers began to
placard walls with. a most violent
proclamation which explains that to
morrow's strike is ln protest against
the action of the government in "pre
paring an ambush and turning loose
' the soldiery, who by charging and sab
ering had stung the manifestants into
replying, thus giving the troops an ex

not dare to announce the real number
of workers assassinated at Vigneaux.
The crime cannot pass unnoticed ard
the only reply possible is a twenty
four hours' strike." .
• The police arrested the bill stickers
and the manifestation was then dis
tributed in the form of hand bills.
The first signs this evening of a
strike was-when a number of printers
did not put in an appearance at the
newspaper offices and it is feared that
half of the Journals will be unable to
print. Those offices where work is
proceeding are surrounded by police in
order to ward off attacks by militant

SOMETHING has happened to
Watts. The town has taken on
musical comedy airs. It has he- ,
come a summer resort for long and
short German comedians and for short- j
skirted, golfing chorus girls who han
dle a driver very much as though they
were playing croquet and who prob- j
ably wouldn't' recognize Colonel Bogey
should he pass them on the links.
Moreover, a certain Mr. Homer Emens
has moved the town Into the foothills
with a lake, or a pond, or a puddle,
or something or other in the fore
ground. And not content with that,
this same Mr. Homer Emens has
taken a scene painter's view of the
Glenwood hotel at Riverside and has
transplanted the • hotel, mission bells
and all, to the town at the other end
of the "Watts and local" car line.
Personally I hadn't heard of these sur
prising changes until last night, when
I dropped Into the Los Angeles the
ater and saw them for myself.
It Is a very amusing Watts, this
"Lonesome Town" which the elongated
Mr. Kolb and the spatulated Mr. Dill
brought us last night via New York;
all of which goes to prove that distance
really does lend enchantment to the
view. The commuter who lives in |
Watts never could have Imagined so i
lively a "Lonesome Town." The thing j
The Same Kolb and Dill
Kolb and Dill have changed little I
since their last appearance on Spring j
street. Kolb, if possible, is a trifle
more attenuated, but that is all. He Is
still boss of the ranch and he still
dances with a grotesque agility that ls
There is nothing particularly new '.n
the work of either of these comedians.
To be sure they have cut out the slap
stick, but the good old reliable seltzer
bottle still holds out to squirt; and
when things go awry the tall man still
kicks his shorter partner in the
stomach. Thus, you see, it Isn't so
much what they do as the mightily
funny way they do it. I have seen ro
tund comedians kicked before, but I
never have seen a kick delivered, with
such ludicrous effect as Kolb ' places
lt; nor received with such comical
resignation as Dill accepts it. And
even the seltzer bottle Isn't as unfunny
as it might be.
However, there are novelties in this
"Lonesome Town." One of them is a
plot which really tells a story; another
is a stunt provided for the chorus and
which won't be half so funny once the
chorus Is able to do lt properly. The
girls come running on the stage, os
tensibly pursued by an enraged cow.
One at a time they vault a stone wall
successfully and despite arduous re
hearsals not all of the young women
have acquired the knack of it. Last
! night some of them vaulted, some
scrambled and a few Just rolled; but
all of them escaped the horns of the
angered bovine and the audience guf
fawed Its appreciation.
Who's Who In the Town
I The Kolb and Dill company this sea
son includes Billy Clifford, Maud Lam
bert, a thin-hipped young woman with
a wink calculated to give a Long
Beach druggist cardiac palpitation; j
Charlotte Vidot, who conceals her pret
tlness under a bucolic make-up so ef
fectually as to prove her devotion to
her art: Ernest Van Pelt, who is well
known here and whoso by-gosh con
stable is funny along traditional lines;
and a considerable number of others,
mostly girls. There is one .-irl in the
chorus, by the way, a blonde, who has
a prima donna voice. I don't know
where Kolb and Dill found her, but
she is not long for the merry, merry.
The dialogue in the piece, much of it
obviously Manhattan made, is funny
enough to make even a manager laugh.
I know because I heard the house man
ager do It. The songs, too, are good.
In proof of that several of them have
been pirated In Los Angeles, notably,
"When the Moon Plays Peek-a-boo"
and "Just Some One." Of the others
the best are "I'm Running After
Nancy," and "Gee, but This Is a Lone
some Town," which was flrst sung here
several years ago by Kolb and Dill
"Lonesome Town" remains at the Los
Angeles two weeks. Its local color ls
sadly bedaubed, but If you are ln search
of that commodity you can get It In the
real estate ads. Otherwise the comedy
fills the bill. It's funny, it's well done
and it's fairly well sung.
"Julie Bon Bon." a farce by Clara
Llpman, new to the west, will be pre
sented at the Belasco for the first time
tonight, with Jane Grey ln Miss Llp
man's role and with Harry Glazier ln
the part assumed In the original pro
duction by Louis Mann.
The usual weekly cha"nges of bill are
announced, beginning with matinee
performances today, at the Orpheum,

theaters. At the Orpheum William H.
Thompson ls the readliner. Fischer's

WASHINGTON GIRLS ARE
HEALTHIER THAN BOYS
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2.—Examina
tion of children under 16 years of age
who desire to work under the provisions
of the new child labor law of the Dis
trict of. Columbia has demonstrated
that- city girls are far healthier than
city boys. Out of a total of 1700 chil
dren examined ' since June 30, the In
spectors have rejected seventy-five
boys for physical disability and only
two girls. The same proportion in the
matter of health, it is believed, exists
In all the large cities of the country. ,
R. O. Wllmarth, who Is ln charge of
the examinations, gave out figures to
show that girls between 12 and 16 years
of age are far better qualified to battle
with the world than their brothers.
While the number of applicants for
permits to, work Includes more boys
than girls, yet the percentage of , re
jections In the case of the boys has oc
casioned surprise. The . lads, for the
most part, are found to be ; suffering
from heart and lung troubles.

THE reception given the old fav
orite, "The Judge and the Jury,"
at two performances at the Bur
bank yesterday promises another sea
son of enthusiastic support for this
Morosco-Cottrell product. Three years
ago Los Angeles witnessed the first
performance of this play, and then In
dulged In a demonstration of wild ap
proval that lasted five weeks. Accord
ing to the audiences yesterday Los An
geles is ready to stand by Its verdict
and repeat the demonstration in the
same hilarious fashion. : ..'•
Not much is expected of hot weather
audiences, so that the manner they
went after curtain calls and the fervent
way they showed their love for the
hero and their faith in the virtue and
good name of the greatly wronged
heroine was proof that a New York
decision doesn't go far with a Bur
bank audience. However, in behalf of
New York, it should be said that the
version given here is the one that came
wet from the fountain pen of Mr.
Llorosco and not the revised affair
which the metropolis refused to ac
cept. It has been generally agreed that
cooking the thing over spoiled it. There
are reasons to believe that some day
it will find Its way quietly back into
New York in its original form, and re
ceive its reward.
There are many in the cast who ap
peared three years ago here and near
ly all the principals are the same. Big
William Desmond gets back into his
mining togs and • misunderstands his
sweetheart in the same hearty fashion
he did then. The authors of the play
have very skillfully kept their hero
from being considered stupid by the
audience %y Just the slightest shade.
Too much praise cannot be given Mo
rosco and Cottrell for their knowledge
of their players and their understand
ing of the sympathies of their audi
ences. Few dramas could show Des
mond to better advantage.
-Miss Hall's Maqulta is another fea
ture that is a three-year-old tradition.
Her plaintive, earnest pleading with the
hero not to misunderstand her is so
persuasive that.it comes near making
Bill unpopular with the house when
all he can do ls to turn aside his pic
turesque profile and wring his hands
until the famous muscles of his fore
arms show to ,best advantage. That
may be where New York got the
wrong Idea. Los Angeles has known
Desmond for j a long time and known
that he ls a hero flrst, last and forever.
The audiences yesterday showed by
their great applause and spontaneous
laughter that • the drama Is Just as
much a favorite here as it was three
years ago. There ls no mistaking such
Judgment from two houses crowded to
the doors on a hot day. The cast ls
altogether competent and some excel
lent stage management has been done
in handling the mob. The scenic effects
are also deserving of high praise. ,

of that assertion permit me to say
to you, Mrs. Wept Adams Street, there
is nothing Incriminating In that allur
ing silken garter , which fell from
Hubby's pocket, as he leaned over to
crank the machine, preparatory to his
trip to the office this morning. Natur
ally, when you saw it you had visions
of "The Girl, the Man and the Ali

dignantly upon the Girl's character,
though you may have thought there
was little room for doubt on that score.
Doubtless you planned a bad quarter
of ,an hour for the Man; and If the
Alimony entered Into your calculations
at all it was merely as an unimportant
But you are wrong; wholly wrong.
Hubby came by that garter, perfumed
though It is, innocently enough. No,
he didn't pick it up on the street. He
wouldn't ejtpect you to believe a: tara
diddle like that. And, yes, lt has been
worn. Of course It has. Who would
think of keeping as a souvenir a garter
which never had fulfilled its proper

Mile. Charmlon, I believe, was the
flrst young woman to popularize the
garter souvenir on this side of the
Atlantic. That was considerably more
than a decade ago, and since Char
mlon's day there have been many
young women who have distributed
silken elastic favors to admiring mas
culinity. At the Grand this week there
are six of them. ' They toss off their

There are something more than a
baker's dozen of musical numbers in
the show and one bit of acting, con
tributed by Miss Ellse Schuyler, that
is good enough to frame. Harry War

Louis Mann part. Aubrey Carr wears
a uniform and ls supposed to be a
captain of something or other. Llbby
Blondell Is a wife whose husband is in
love with her, who dotes on cats and
who ls not averse to a Jolly little flirta
tion, when the opportunity offers.
Charles Gyblln ' provides the oppor
tunity, with results that make him
much envied by men ln the audience.
Thomas Haverly Is a senator whose
speeches Indicate that he must have
been elected on a tidal wave, their
humor is so exceedingly wet. Edna
Sydney is a pretty girl, and that's about
all there Is to the plot.
The Musical Numbers
The best of the musical numbers are
"Stupid Mr. Cupid," sung by Miss
Schuyler; an operatic and familiar
medley, allotted to Mr. Wardell;
Thomas Haverly's "I Want Everybody
to be Happy"; a pathetic ditty ln which
Mr. Carr explains that he must have a
lot of little girls around him—and has
them; a ballad of the young woman
who was good because she didn't know
how to be bad, sung by Miss Blondell;
"They Say He Went i to College," ef
fectively delivered by Mr. Gyblln with
the aid of the chorus, and the "Tama

swing song, with Its sartorial and gar

The costumes are good, and in the
case of the ponies sufficiently varied.
The chorus, however, prances nimbly
through the two acts without a' single
change, and two of the girls who have
speaking parts, Important to the de

roles in chorus costumes, which is more
economical than effective.

and will draw up the information as
he was instructed, by the court to do at
the time the Indictments were set aside

NAVAL TURBINE TEST
A* 'v ■■-- - ■ ' * A
Officers Declare the Salem's Recent
Fast Trip Proves Conclusively the
Efficiency of Curtis Type
NEW YORK, Aug. Officers of the
United States Navy are pleased with
the record made by the scout cruiser
Salem, which, entered Boston harbor a
few days ago with the figures 26.88
painted on her funnel to show the time
she had made In her second test. This
was the flrst test made by the United
States government of the Curtis tur
bine, and it was deemed specially Im
portant as determining the efficiency
of this type of turbine.
The Curtis turbine has been utilized
for a brief period, but until recently
was not deemed a proper electric gen
erator for * tarltime purposes. .; ; ;
"All the officers seemed to agree that
the Curtis turbine - produced splendid
results," said Lieutenant Commander
.Robert Kyle Crank of the navy yester
day. •■■';■"-'-'' •"*'■> *.-, -
"The Japanese government, which is
not bound by precedent and which
wishes to obtain results without undue
expenditure, has had a Curtis turbine
set shipped for the battleship of the
Dreadnought type that it is building
—to be called the Aki—and has ordered
another for a new armored cruiser the
Ibukl. > .;
"The United States has had three
systems Introduced in three new scout
cruisers so as to test the results, and
the Salem has had an easy victory
with the Curtis turbine.
"The great objection heretofore raised
to the turbine for naval purposes lay
In the difficulty It gave for maneuvers.
It has been asserted that the Dread
nought would require a separate set of
engines to reverse and back. The Cur
tis turbine seems far superior to other
turbines in this respect. The Salem
backed out from her dock with her
own engines and turned without having
to call tugs to her assistance.
"I regard this fact as beln-y of the
utmost importance and I believe that
the Curtis turbine should be generally
adopted, outside of the fact that It is
a purely American Invention and that
the flrst results have' been splendid."
Of great Interest in ' church circles

Temple Baptist church when Mr. Fallla
