With the addition of three new men,
the Emma Bunting company promises
a production of “Sweet Clover” next
Sunday such as has never been seen in
stock in San Antonio. These new men
are now rehearsing and according to re
ports on their ability are fully up to
their recommendations. Willie Hall
comes from the Marlowe Stock company
of Chicago; Mr. Hotchkiss was former
ly in the support of Louis James and
Frederick Warde, and Frederic Herzog
was a member of the Warfield produc
tion of “The Music Master,” but lately
with the People’s stock in Chicago.
Manager Weis of the Grand lays par
ticular stress on the fact that the big
theatre will be artificially cooled and a
scenic production of unusual merit will
be given “Sweet Clover.”
The best bill in town for the price
is shown at the Happy Hour theater
this week where a sketch, a monologue
end a novelty dance by five young wo
men. together with a double reel of
moving pictures are offered.

Tomorrow night is amateur night, an J
institution that has proven a strong I
magnet for Happy Hour patrons. The ;
regular bill will be produced entire,
while aspiring young San Antonians
will do stunts that will rival those of
the profession.
Matinees are given every afternoon,
beginning at 3, and regular perform
ances at night at 7.
Commencing Sunday, matinee, at the '
Empire, the Edwin Barrie Stock com-'
pany will present that great French
play, “Divorcons. ” This is the play ।
that has made Grace George famous and '
was written by Victorien Sardou, the
greatest of all French authors. “Divor-
Icons” tells a story of the divorce law
in France and is a play of more than
usual merit. Miss Joie Canada, in'
the role of Cyprienne. gives a correct
and pleasing interpretation of the part.,
Miss Canada is a vivacious, charming
little lady whose success throughout the
eastern cities will no doubt be repeated
through the south and west. She has
more magnetism in her little finger than
most actresses have through their whole
being. Miss Canada is a finished actress
and the play is one of the very best
| comedies ever written. Miss March

Special Dispatch to The Gazette.
। Washington, April 29. —A movement
has been started, with the approval of
j President Taft, looking to congression
al action for the restoration of Col.
William F. Stewart to the retired list
with the rank of brigadier general.
Colonel Stewart will be remembered
as “the exile of Fort Grant.” He was
| deprived of his command, although no
j charges had been filed against him, and
j after all manner of indirect efforts had
been made to force him to retire, he
was sent to a desolate, abandoned army
post in Arizona, with a consumptive and
, a mule as his only companions and one
body servant as his command, and was
left there to ponder on the unwisdom
of opposing a clique in the war depart
ment which happens to be in power.
Colonel Stewart was finally relieved
of his exile only to be ordered to Wash
ington, where an examining board went
through the forma of an examination
and then ordered him placed upon the
retired list for disability. The col
onel’s disability was of the sort which
had never been visible to the naked eye
and which did not interfere with a long
career of hard campaigning on the fron
tier. But two army doctors were found
who could discover something wrong
with the palpitations of his heart, and
their testimony, joined to that of three
officers carefully selected by superiors ,
in the war department, who had shown
their attitude by sending him into ex
ile, resulted in the retiring order.
Colonel Stewart has been living quiet
ly in Washington ever since. He has
carefully refrained from all activities
which would tend to keeg up interest
in his case. He has kept away from
officers of the war department and
from members of congress who might
favor legislation in his interest. He is
himself a believer in the school of strict
military discipline and he has obeyed
in spirit of the law which forbids of
ficers, even on the retired list, indulg
ing in any criticism or reflections on
superiors in command. The movement
which has started is a purely spon
taneous one inaugurated by his friends
and those who have taken a general
interest in his case, moved by their be
lief that he was greatly wronged.
Senators and congressmen from the
Pacific coast have been most active in
the present steps and it is anticipated
that Senator Perkins and Flint will do
what thev can to push the bill on the
senate aide. Repreaentatites McKinley
and Kahn of the same state are also
interested and one or the other of them
will probably father Colonel Stewart’s
bill in the house. Tl»e great weight of
Influence, however, which bears promise
of a vindication for the colonel, lies
in the fact that the leal leaders of the
senate are in favor of some action of
this sort. Men like Senators Hala and
Aldrich, Gallinger, Cullom and Warren
have become convinced that the Stew
art case was a notable example of in
justice and should be undone. In these
opinions thev are understood to be In
harmonv with the views of President
The orders sehding Colonel Stewart
into exile, it is now claimed, never were
approved by Mr. Taft. The influence
which sent the colonel into exile eman
ated from Major General W. P. Duvall,
now in the Philippines. This influence
acted at the time directly on the white
house. The advice of the then secre
tarv of war was not sought.
An unusual factor in the oase of Col
onel Stewart at the present time is said
to be the active favor of Mrs. William
Howard Taft. While the president’s
wife does not believe in meddling with
goes believe that a woman’s In
does not believe that a woman’s in
fluence may be exercised at times tn
political as in other fields, with results
which justifv such interference. Friends
of Mrs. Taft sav she did not approve
the action taken by President Roose
velt in the Stewart case. She feels
that every effort should be made at
the present time to secure a vindication
and to undo the wrong, so far as it may
| lie undone, suffered by a deserving vet
' eran in the military service.
Colonel Stewart would like to be re
stored to the active list. He is not
worried bv the verdict of the doctors
! retiring him for disability. Thirty years
ago Colonel Stewart was examined by a
doctor who told him there was trouble
with bis heart. For several years he
worried. Then, finding that there
seemed to be nothing to worry about.

and that the supposed irregularity in
the valvular action of his heart did not
interfere with his military duties, he
went on eating, sleeping, drilling and
fighting Indians regardless of the doc
tors. Up to the day he was retired
he w’alked and rode and took all the
forms of exercise indulged in by the
youngest or the hardiest members of
the army.
“The time has come to do justice to
a man who has been grievously and out
rageously wronged,” said a member of
the senate to your correspondent.
“Nothing that has ever come to light
has justified the action taken in the
Stewart case. If all the charges made
against the colonel were true, and more
added to them, still they would not war
rant the action taken because the col
onel was entitled to have those charges
tried. If he had committed any breach
of discipline he should have been giv
en a courtmartial. This is all he ever
asked. If he was. as General Duvall
and the war department clique said he
was, ‘an impossible person,’ that should
have been put in the form of a eflarge
and he should have been tried for the
crime of being an ‘impossible person.’
He should be restored to his proper rank
of brigadier general.”
