ALBERTA BATTLE OF PORT ARTHUR MT1SSGS I BERTRAM CASE GOLDEN WDM CELEBRATED GALLATIN L H Ho - II 1 crib 11 II W . - - - THE FAMOUS ACTRESS WHO APPEARS AT THE GEN- NETT TONIGHT. SEEN AT THE WESTCOTT By a Palladium Representative She Tells of the Play. Alberta Gallatin, who appears at the Geimett tonight in Ibsen's lat est and best production, "Ghosts," with her support, are stopping at the Westeott hotel. A Palladium representative called at the hotel today and was introduced to the lady who has won such a won derful reputation as an actress. The representative found her one of the most congenial and versatile of wo men, ready and most willing to tell of the play in which she carries the leading role. She says "Ghosts"-is a strong play on heredity, and is con sidered to be Ibsen's masterpiece, as it is also his latest production, for the Writing of which he was forced into exile. It is one of the greatest emotional productions extant. There is no change of scene, the costuming is the same all through, and it is absolutely void of any stagi ness. People sit throughout the pro duction with almost breathless atten tion, so interested are they in the pro duction. We have only five people in the company, but they are all ac tors, and each one seems especially adapted to the part taken. Thl following persons compose the cast: Miss Alberta Gallatin, Allen Davenport, pastor; John Ravold, car penter; Claus Bogel, a French Creole, the son; Rose Curry, the maid. Next to Miss Gallatin, who plays the mother, the son is the strong part. All seem fitted for the part assigned them. The company is enroutefrom California to New York. Miss Gallatin is in love with the west and its people, and says Rich mond is certainly one of the beautiful spots of creation. She was here in "Sapho," but, owing to a dislike for that kind of a play, which has no moral lesson to it, and also owing to family influences, she gave tip "Sapho." Miss Gallatin, who retains her family name on . the stage, is fine looking and of splendid stature. She is a daughter of General Albert Gal latin Jenkins, who was the youngest man in congress. He was elected from Virginia when twenty-four years old, and took his seat when he was twenty-five. She has had a wonderful rise in her profession and also jrreat training, having toured with Pooth and Barrett, Joe Jefferson, Mansfield, Mrs. Fiske, E. H. Suthern and many other prominent men and women. Those who can do so should see her tonight, and we guarantee them one of the finest productions of the season. . TO EASTHAVEN.

If the bills are not high enough they send in last year's. I have found this to be true myself and I discharge the defendant.' "Thus spoke yesterday Magistrate Flammer of New York, after listen ing to a complaint against Dr. Charles Selling, of 234 east eighty-seventh street, after he had refused, to admit a-gas inspector to examine the meter.

FIBER GRAFTED 01 FACE TO MAKE A NOSE FOR A YOUNG MAN BORN WITHOUT ONE Dr. Charles Fraser Says That Opera tion Will Be Successful. Philadelphia, March 22. The op eration of grafting a finger upon a man's face in order to build up a nose was performed at the University hos pital on Saturday. The patient, a young man named Leonard, was born practically without a nose. He took up his residence at the hospital early last week and on Saturday afternoon the operation was made in the pres ence of a large number of phj-sicians, who had been attracted by the unu sual ease. After the face had been laid open along the line of the nose the nail was removed fromthe fourth finger of the left hand and part, of the skin of the finger scraped away. Then the finger was grafted upon the face. A plaster cast mold was formed around the newly grafted finger. , Until the flesh has grown firmly together this mould will remain in place and Leonard will be forced to hold his arm and hand in one posi tion all that time. The process of graft ing will occupy about three weeks. When the plaster cast is finally re moved, the finger will be amputated. Dr. Charles Fraser, who performed the operation, has every hope of its ultimate success. So far as is known there has been only one similar opera tion in this country, and that was at Johns Hopkins hospital. A marriage license was issued to Ira M. Wright and Nellie M. Parker, of Whitewater. The county commissioners were in session this morning.

BUBAL W DELIVERY Carriers Will Likely Have Another Increase. Washington, March 23. A little skirmish in the house yesterday indi cates that there will be a lively fight Over the rural free delivery amend ment. A point of order will be made against it, thus necessitating a rule for its consideration. This is the com-se that has been decided upon by Chairman Overstreet. From pres ent indications the pay of the car l'iers Avill be increased over the figure proposed by the house committee. "It has probably been overlooked by a great many people," said an Indiana member who was discussing the amendment, "that the department stores of the large cities have deep in terest in the proposition to allow ru ral carriers to act as agents. There are many carriers in the country, and the number will be greatly increased within the next few years. With the continuation of the agency business this means almost complete annihila tion for small country merchants, who have already registered their oppo sition to the policy of the department in permitting carriers to act as agents or solicitors for hire. This phase of the question has received little con sideration so far, but it is high time that we should give it some, though it is expected that an animated debate will follow wrhen the rural free deliv ery item is reached today or Thurs day."
