PAGE TUB GEnf.ll SOLDIERS WATCH STRIKERS 00,000 Building Tradesmen Are Idle All Over the Empire Now. CLASHES ARE EXPECTED EFFORTS WILL BE MADE TO PA RADE TODAY AND IF SUCH AC TION OCCURS BLOODY FIGHTS ARE EXPECTED. (American, News' Service) Berlin, April 16. Troops were dis tributed in every city In Germany af fected by the general lockout in the building trades which went into effect at midnight , Reports received here today indicate that ; 400,000 men throughout the country have been thrown into idleness. The social democrats have started a campaign of . agitation, making the most for their propaganda of the situa tion, which was brought about by the refusal by the socialist federation of trades unions to accept the wage scale offered by the master builders union. An attempt will be made to parade to row wow. Bloody clashes will un doubtedly follow. Fully ten per cent of the latter organizations' members regards the men's demands as fair and have refused to Join in the lockout, but more than 20,000 firms are In the movement. The entire organization of the work ing classes has been drawn on for suu . port by the locked out men. Tho building trades unions already have in ash more than $3,000,000 and will not begin to pay benefits for two weeks. A great sum is due in supporting con tributions dally. While negotiations for peace are un der way at Munich, it was declared to day that the employers of Berlin, Ham burg and Bremen, nat at first included, w ould be called on to join in the lock out. . At Local Theaters The Third Degree. In presenting Charles Klein's latest ucceBS, "The Third Degree," Henry 13. Harris bespeaks for it the same Absorbing Interest that attached to Mr. Klein's other dramatic triumph, "The Lion and the House." This time Instead of attacking financial ' and political conditions, Mr, Klein has seen fit to go to Fifth Avenue for his characters, bringing to light a conn diUon .that exists in that society, and revealing it In a vivid manner. Sel dom In the history of the drama has there been recorded a play that em bodies the tense and absorbing inter- ' est contained in "The Third Degree." Its presentation at the Gennett on Tuesday, April 26th, will be the same as that which obtained during its long and successful run. at the Hudson the ater in New York. ; Richmond 8tock Co. ' ' Richmond has had many traveling repertoire companies but never in the history of Its theater has It been abl to boast of owning a permanent stock company. Such is the Richmond - Stock company which Harry G. Som mers has gathered together from dif ferent parts of the country to Inau gurate the spring season with an in definite run. The list of names is a lone one. Most nrominent beine that of Jane Babcock, the leading lady who! comes direct from the Bush Temple where she was a great favorite. Play " ing opposite to Miss Babcock will be Mr. Carl Brlckert, for several seasons the leading man with Belasco's "Girl of the Golden West" The Btage will be most ably directed by Mr. John A. Preston, who has a wide reputa tion for his work 'in that line. v Russian Gypsy Troupe. Patrons of the Murray will be pleas ed to learn that the Russian . Gypsy Troupe will be in Richmond this week. This troupe has won aulte a reputa tion as excellent singers, wearing most attractive costumes and giving some bewildering dances. A comedy act by he Three Dreamers and the Tflel Sisters, singers, dancers and contortionists are sure to please all. A , comedy playlet "Married for Money" presented by Forry Brott and Co., is also a sketch that has been very popu lar wherever given this season and being truly a comedy sketch It should prove very entertaining . here. With the motion pictures another big bill Is assured all patrons of approved vaudeville at the Murray this week. Monte Carlo Girls. , Positively tomorrow night only will be burlesque night, and the real show will be here. For many seasons bur lesquers have been coming to oar city, but one -of the most popular and the favorite among the "boys" is the I ' MMM Monte Carlo Girls, with their pretty girls and funny men. This season an entirely new show has been written for these merry makers. The open ing burletta is entitled "The Merry Madcaps," in which the entire com pany appear, and as the name Implies, It Is one mad riot of fan. The clos ing burlesque is entitled "Too Many Husbands." This Is said to be the funniest and most up-to-date piece that they have had In years. Added to the above is a number of the highest class vaudeville specialties, among whom are many old time favorites, es pecially "Lew Golden," our old He brew friend, one of the very best and highest salaried comedians in the country, and the boys always know what to expect with him in the cast; also our old friend Mllo De Rau with a new sensation. The Goddess of Liberty.; "The Goddess of Liberty" is one of the latest musical plays from the pro lific pens of Will M. Hough and Frank R. Adams, with music by Joseph E. Howard and has registered an impres sion upon -the Chicago newspaper critics and playgoing public unparal lelled in the history of Chicago the atrical productions. Heretofore the plays of these authors have been full of slang and dealt with incidents in the lives of the middle class working people, but in "The Goddess of Liber ty" they have chosen the aristocratic English nobleman -and the American heiress, and various other represen tatives of a smarter class of society for their principal characters. - The original cast, chorus and production, eame as produced at the Princess the ater for three hundred consecutive performances with Sallle Fisher and George - Parsons, supported by P. O'Malley, Jennings, Johnny Fogarty, Francis Yourige, OIHe Artell, George Day, Augustus Carney, Mabel Freder icks, Dan Hall and Fred Hagan. The broilers who have been such a feature in the former successes by these au thors, are still conspicuous. This is possibly Miss Fisher's fare well engagement in musical comedy. This is the first time that she has toured the country in six years. It is said that at the close of this season Miss Fisher is to go abroad and that at the end of a year will return and enter grand opera. The attraction comes to the Gennett on Monday, April 25. " T.

DAY OLIVE ARTELLE PERCY JENNINGS FRANCES Y0UNGE JOHNNY F0GERTY FLORENCE GUISE FRED HAGAN AUGUSTUS CARNEY DANIEL HALL COMMENCING ma . a The Scope Of An Address Delivered at the N ational Suffrage Convention at Washington by Mrs. LaReine Helen Baker. (American News Service) Washington, April 16. At the meet ing of the National American Woman Suffrage association yesterday, Mrs. LaReine Helen Baker delivered the following address: - Laws which prevent women from occupying such a station in society as her conscience shall dictate, or which place her In a position inferior to that of men, are contrary to the great precept of nature, and therefore are of no force of authority. Woman is man's equal; was Intended to be so by the Creator, and the highest good of the race demands that she should be recognized as such. Women ought to be enlightened in regard to the laws under which they live, that they may no longer publish their degradation by declaring them selves satisfied with their present po sition, nor their ignorance by assert ing that they have all the rights they want. The same amount of virtue, delicacy and refinement of behavior that is required of women In a social state should also be required of men, and the same punishment for transgres sions should be visited with equal severity on both man and woman. ' Equal suffrage, the universal right of the franchise conveys a scope al most unlimited. To gain -equal suf frage means more than to gain a right for women to vote. It means the freeing of the sex which for years has been held in bondage, conven tionally and otherwise. Further than this, equal suffrage will work a bless ing upon the children of the future generations. Why? Because free chil dren can be born of free parents only. Other nations look to America to day and point as if to a "free" land, where life is a sweet fantasy of dreams. But, what woeful lack of freedom there is here. The mothers of the country today, shorn of their rights to live and help their children after their own minds, are little more than slaves. The nation depends upon its children, its spirit of freedom and life, and yet year after year the senti ment of freedom is growing less and less, and why? Because, throughout the vast land of almost 100,000,000 people, the mothers are awakening to a realization that their life is not one of. freedom, not one of individuality. Instead they are soberly realizing that they are victims of a great sense of masculine rights. Give the mother an opportunity to take a hand in the law; put her energy into enforcing child labor rulings, es tablishing a single standard of morals for both men and women; allow her to have a voice in making and break ing home ties, instituting - marriage and divorce laws, and enforcing them; allow her to take a part in caring for the state's orphan children, the na tion's offcasts, and above all. allow her the ownership of her ' body and Oini-er announces Chleaffo's firasif ar MimIaaI Trlnmnh YPninl(lTC?(?

As Eta a The Success as THURSDAY AND BABCOCK AND Equal Suffrage" mind, and watch tho rapid develop ment of the race, the unequaled strides of the nation. There are states already which are realizing the rights of women to ad vantage. In Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming the women are voting, and, to a great extent, are ridding communities of greed, vice and corrup tion. And why will it not be done in every state in the Union when once the rights of franchise are extended? In these states the benefits have been manifold already and while there are more men than women, the woman have cast fully half the total vote on several occasions. Woman's responsibility to make her self an Intelligent entity, a worthy character and a helpful factor in the community, proves her right to equal opportunity and powers as an Individ ual sovereign with men.. The agitation of the suffrage ques tion is an educational force of untold value, though the "ballot for women' alone will not free her from the chains of ignorance and superstition. It is hoped however, that when all political dissensions founded on sex shall have been wiped out women will be sufficiently intelligent to de mand equal freedom with her broth er man by demanding the . ownership and control of her person. My Bisters, I appeal to you. Let us work together for the human welfare of the coming race. There are chil dren in mothers arms today and thou sands and thousands yet unborn who will bless your memory.
