I III: BICKNELLS PLEASE American Apachee Dancers (live (iofld Show And Make A Hit Seldom do vaudeville performers meet with the hearty reception that was accorded the Bicknells, who made a marked hit last night at the Colonial Theatre. Tho Bicknells have recently return ed from an engagement in Europe, where they were well receivetl. Mr. Bicknell is the originator of the American Apache dance, something more refined and pleasing than the coarse, suggestive Apache dance of the lower life of the Parisian demi monde. i After a song, which is a sort of a starter, the Bicknells give a waltz, then an exhibition of acrobatic danc ing ending with the famous Ameri can Apachee dance,of which Mr. Bick nell is the originator. The dance is well worth seeing. Miss Bicknell is not handle j ver.v carefully bv Mr. 8., Lot she doesn't seem to mind it, and incidentally she is a beautiful speci men of the human form divine. The pictures are good, but the vaudeville is the best seen here for a long time. Don’t mi- - it tonight and tomorrow night.

GIRAULT Former Trustee Of City Public School Expires Suddenly A USEFUL LIFE ENDED Impartial And Faithful Woman Trustee And Secretary To School Hoard For Years Although in feeble health for some time, the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Girault. wife of Mr. Joseph B. Gi ! raul, 195 Duke of Gloucester street, came as a great shock to her many friends this morning. Mrs. Girault was found dead in bed. She passed peacefully away during the early morning hours without any one of the family being aware of her demise. At the usual hour this morning her husband, who occupied the same room, called her, but she did not respond, and thinking she was enjoying a sound sleep, went down stairs, telling the family their mother was sleeping so peacefully that he would not disturb her slumbers She did not come downstairs at the usual hour, and an investigation was made by the family, which revealed the fact she was dead, and was sleeping that long and peaceful sleep which knows no waking. She had passed peacefully away during the night or early morning hours. Mrs. Girault was'a woman of strong character, not easily swayed by the opinion of others. For many years- - until long after her health failed, she was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Annapolis public schools, and was one of the first wo men trustees to servo. Her individ uality on the board evidenced her strong-mindedness and she served im partially as well as faithfully and conscientiously. For years she was secretary to the trustees of the school, and filled the position with credit to the schools, the board and herself. About two or three years ago she sustaine i a fall in Stewart & Co’s store, Baltimore, which injured her to such an extent that she never fully recovered. It was thought the fall was caused by a stroke of apoplexy, as subsequent de velopment showed some degree of paralysis. Mrs. Girault was a woman who never paraded her illness, but when asked of her health, would always cheerfully say she felt well, or was doing nicely, and she bore her afflic tion with Spartan courage and forti tude. She was active, as active as the affliction would permit,to the last. She was a faithful and devoted mem ber of the Presbyterian Church, at tending service there when she had to be steadied in her feebleness, to take a seat in the church. Besides her husband site is sur vived by the following children: Mrs. Annie, wife of Charles Munroe; Mrs. Edith, wife of Spignal P. Wiley, of Florida; Misses Nellie and Margaret Girault, and Mr. Alexander Girault, Expert Chemist at Sparrow's Point, Baltimore; Mr. George Girault, ento mologist at a leading college in the South, and Mr. John Girault,of North Dakota. A brother in Chicago also survives. ENTERTAINED CAMPERS Dr. Ami Mrs. Garner Give Aflernom Tea To Teachers A delightful social afternoon was enjoyed yesterday by the following teachers of the High School and their friends: Misses Louise Linthieum, Mary Bass, Dickerson, Childs, Esther White, Ethel Bass, Margaret LinthL cum, Marion Duvall, Nellie Riordan, Josephine Riordan, Mr. James Gould, Mr. Walton Childs.. These were the gue9ts of Dr, Samuel Garner, County Superintendent, of Public Schools, and Mrs. Garner at their hospitable home in the county, near Annapolis. A beautfully appoint ed five o’clock tea was served, amid most attractive surroundings, and a pleasant social afternoon was enjoyed. Mrs. Garner, who is a brilliant wo man of intellectual attainments and rare abilty, is a charming hostess, and made her guests feel perfectly at home. The party entertained are mostly teachers of the City High School, who have been camping for the week on Mr. Sheckell’s farm,near South river,and enjoying roughing it. With an exception of a mishap to one of their number, Miss Esther White,who was painfully burned about the arm from an alcohol lamp, the week has been a perfect one for the campers,devoid of unpleasantness and without storms or rain. They expect to break camp in a few days. 4BT ST.

It will increase the rate at East port from $1.64 to $2.38 and at Ger mantown from $1.44 to $2. IS as 1 shown by the following figures: General tax rate for Eastport— County 62 cents Road 30 cents Increase Road 20 cents School 36 cents State 16 cents Present tax rate. $1.64 Increase Spec ial Privi leges 74 $2.33 On the SIOO General tax rate for Eastport Heights and Germantown — County 62 cents Road 3o cents School 36 cents State 16 cents Pres, lax rate $1.44 Increase Spec ial Privileges .74 $2.18 On the SIOO 1 hese figures are based upon a basis of $550,00U. which is at present more than is upon the books of the county by about $25,000. .It cost $336 a month or $4,032 for lights and two policemen at Eastport and Ger mantown, therefore to raise this amount upon the above basis it makes an enormous increase of 74 cents, which equals $4,070. Under this Act the whole of the Fifth district is assessed for the same privileges at Brooklyn, and I cannot understand why the whole of the Sec ond district was not assessed for same privileges at Eastport and German town. Why this discrimination? Is this fair? or where is there any justice in such drastic measure? Let every taxpayer of Eastport and Germantown come before the Board of County Commissioners next Tues day* June 28, and lodge their protest. For my part, like a great many prop erty holders at Eastport, we do not propose to submit to such an unrea sonable and unlawful measure. JAMES A. WALTON. ARGUING ELECTION CASES Contest Over Municipal Registration Law Is Of Vital Importance To Annapo lis City Counsellor R. P. Melvin, of Annapolis, is in Baltimore today to participate in the arguments over the Annapolis registration laws wbieh are being heard before Judge Morris, in the United States District Court there. The cases are the outgrowth of the municipal registration law pass ed for Annapolis at the session of 1908, whereby, through the grand father clause and a property qualifi cation most of the negro voters of Annapolis were eliminated from par ticipation in the selection of the City Council. Several negroes under instructions from the party managers of the Re publicans in Annapolis, applied for registration, which it was known ahead of time would be refused them. When refused registration the negroes Instituted suit in the Federal Courts to recover damages, and to this suit the registration officials through coun sel demurred. The argument is on these demurrers and on the court’s ruling there, hinge the validity of the law. OVERCOME BY THE HEAT First Horn; Victim Reported This Season Yesterday afternoon Mr. Clausen Kelly, son of Mr. Pert J. Kelley, leading coal and wood dealer at East port, was overcome by the heat. The young man narrowly escaped death a few days ago by being thrown by his horse into the machinery of a saw mill, but for his presence of mind and wonderful exhibitionjof nerve at the time of the accident, he escaped serious injury. It is thought by his friends that he had not fully recovered from the shock of the accident and owing to his weakened condition, the intensely hot weather yesterday caused him to succumb to the heat. He is reported to be doing nicely today.

The young men were given a taste of rough weather.

The Knglish authorities are plan ning a round of entertainments fm* the visitors. The Lord Mayor of London will give a dinner.

Other officers o( the squadron came ashore during the day, but none of the midshipmen. The national mourn ing precludes official celebrations in honor of the squadron, and, owing to the preoccupation of the naval and dockyard authorities in connection witli the mobilization of maneuvres the semi-official entertainment will be on rather a small scale.
