THE OALUIIET HEWS. l'3 HANCOCK PLAY-ACTlNfi IS POPULAR WITH HANCOCK SOCIETIES Knights of Columbus the Latest Order to Announce Home Talent Production. HIGH SCHOOL' STUDENTS BUSY Not content with being merely ac tors In the drama of life when- "all the world's a stugc and all the men jiml women merely players," the desire tn appear In mimic Impersonations on the. theatrical stage, or at any rate to l Instrumental In presenting perform ances in which the characters arc im personated by amateur talent under their auspices, appears to have taken a strong hold 011 various fraternal and Hoclal societies of Hancock. With in the past two months there have lorn several such productions in this city, all of which have been of excep tional merit, the participants showing a high, degree of dramatic ability and In the case of shows In which music has been Introduced, voices of strength and adequate training. Since the end of December there have been given in this city by fraternal societies "Mcls ter Tutenbach," by the Maenerchor society, and the minstrel entertainment by the Hancock lodge of Klks and by the boys of St. Tatrlck's school, be sides which an announcement has al ready been made of forthcoming pro ductions of the opera "Patience," by high school students, "The Little Min ister," by the seniors of the high school; a drama to be given by the St. Patrick's Literary and Social In stitution on St. Patrick's Day and the drama that the members of the Kn'.t-Ms of Columbus arc arranging to present after Kastor. The Knights of Columbus entertain ment promises to be a most elaborate ine and great palnis are being taken in Its preparation. Although the work of getting the cast together and In shape for public' appearance has been In progress for two weeks, but little has been made public concern ing It. The play to be given "The Utile of Richmond," is a four act drama, depicting life In the south be fore the war, ulthough In no sense Is it a war time play, being more along the lines of the well known "Under Southern Skies."

Carroll, of Houghton, who Is himself a former actor of ability and prominence. Mr. Carroll will assume the principal male role of the production, and Miss Hel en McKernan of Houghton, well known also for her histrionic abilities, will 1111 the principal feminine role. The other parts will all be In good hands and an amateur performance of more than usual merit Is anticipat ed. The date has not been fixed but it Is expected that the drama will be produced at the Kcrrcdgo theater near the first of April. The St. Patrick's Institute expects to make a decision this week regard ing the play which they propose to give on St. Patrick's night, the com mittee recently selected to take charge of the matter having looked over sev eral that might bo considered suit able and they will make -a report this evening.

KEENE AS HE WAS LEAVING THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE. New York City, Feb. J,'. James It. Keeno has been unusually successful on the exchange nnd It has just been brought out during, the past week why some shrewd , speculators win while others lose. ' It was while giving testimony before United States Commissioner Alexan der In the federal bulMIng over the Columbus and Hocking Cl and Iron company's pool. It seems It Is Just a matter of knowing when to go out that made the difference between ut ter failure for the last pool nnd sev eral hundred dollars profit for Jnmes U. Keene. And he claims he did not work in any underhand manner eith er. It appears that the pool engin eered by Keene succeeded In forcing the j f ... a$ prices up to about sixty dollati a share, and that was where James R. Keeno thought best to leave It. The other members of the pool, however, thought they knew more than he and formed u second pool, which has been the source of much loss and much scandal on tho New York exchange. LABOR CHIEF SHARPLY ACCUSED e "1: Commissioner of Labor, Charies Neill. P. Washington, D. C, Feb. 25. Ser ious charges, backed by a mass of uurn testimonv ncalnst Charles V. Neill, commissioner of labor, are In the hands of Secretary Nagel, of the lepartment oif 'commerce and labor, and it is not unlikely that the matter may lead to another congressional In- vestigation. V" $ Gross Incompetency is the general j house workers and others of similar charge made against Mr. Neill, andicalllng, while he was casting Into the the more specific allegation is that his waste basket the actual findings of the bureau has squandered appropriations j special agents employed to go Into aggregating $300,000 In collecting a the mills nnd factories and ascertain great amount of data pertaining to j actual conditions. In other words he certain Investigations which he has is accused of working upon theories been authorized to conduct, which data. It is further alleged, he has re fused to uso and has been either alter ed or destroyed because it did not conform t his preconceived notion of what It should prove. For a long time there has boon talk in Washington of the alleged Ineffi ciency of the commissioner of labor and his failure to 'make reports upon the work nnd Investigations which his bureau has been directed to under take. The charges pending with Secre tary Nagel against Mr. Neill were brought last September by Major Thomas It. Pcwley, formerly a special agent of the labor bureau engaged In making important investigations. The secretary nppolnted Assistant Secre tary Ilenjamln J. Cable nnd Charles Sari, the solicitor of the department, to hear the evidence and make a re port. Their report Is now In the pos session of Secretary Nagel.

Address California Fruit Growers in i f 34 Clark irrjtf? Mm J II II I I VL I J lift U)MrDAtrtouft eridge of Indiana made In the senate on Junuary, 1907, upon woman and child labor. He charged that little children by the thousands were being murdered every year by work in mill and factories. The cotton mills of New Kngland and the south, the silk mills of New Jersey, the glass fac tories of Pennsylvania and the cloth ing sweat shops of New York and Chicago were specialized as the place where children were suffering those hardships. As a result of Mr. Iteverldge's speech congress appropriated $150,000 and directed the bureau of labor to make an Investigation of the" condition of woman and child labor. Later this amount was found to be Insufficient and another $150,000 appropriation was made. That was three years ngo nnd nothing In the way of a report has ever been forthcoming from the bu reau. Now comes the charge that the In vestigation made did not develop the facts nil' 1: It was started out to provt. nnd Ud not bear out the pre conceived hypothesis of Commissioner Neill. nnd that In consequence much of the d.itr for which the $300,000 was expended has been cast as!de as use less, while a further effort Is being made to prepare something which will show what the commissioner wanted to prove, namelp that child labor laws were being violated and that a horrible icondition of affairs existed In the mills and factories of the country, and especially in the cotton mill Industry In the south. It wus testified before tho commltteo named by Mr. Nagel that Mr. Neill was expending the congressional ap propriation in seeking to get Informa tion from social economists, child labor specialists, philanthropists, Hull rather than upon facts.
