Played by Alma Francis. Youn? as
Albert Loriflan, the waiter, is madlv
Infatuated with the proprietor's
daughter. The scheming proprietor of
the cafe, having known that Albert
was about to inherit a fortune man
aged to tie the waiter to his job with
a contract whereby If either party
broke it he would have to forfeit 300 -000
francs. Albert would have no par
ticular objection to forfeiting the
money now that he is wealthv. but
Miss Francis as the proprietor's daugh
ter, makes his stay -when the matter
of the forfeit is considered, almost im
perative. Albert becomes a man about town by
night He entertains a queen of the
all night restaurants, played by Miss
Dawn, and has a Hungarian singer
rail in love with him for the way he
spilled soup on her dress. The pro
prietor's daughter comes to the all
night restaurant where the sporting
waiter is holding forth, and Albert
finds himself between three fires. Al
bert finally discovers that he is really
a count and everything ends happily
with his marriage to the proprietor's
daughter, but not before he has fought
a duel for her. Adolphe, a former glass
washer in "the Little Cafe," played by
Harry Lepp, who accompanies Albert
on his attacks on high society, con
tributes much humor to the piece.
"Tonsues of Men."
When T came away from visiting1
"The Tongues of Men" at the
Harris theater, I bore with me only
a confused jumble, in which beautiful
prima donnas, chorus girls and earnest
young rectors were hopelesslv con
fused. Briefly, the "Tongues of Men"
revolves about the attacks made upon
a famous prima donna, played by Hen
rietta Crossman, bv the youthful rec
tor of a fashionable church. Rev. Mr.
Penfleld Sturgis. who has objected to
her appearing as a reprehensible char
acter In an operatic production.
The prima donna calls upon the rec
tor and denounces htm for his narrow
ness. They become quite friendlv, and
the rector changing his views, writes
to the mayor requesting him not to
stop the opera, which the mayor was
about to do as a result of the sector's
sermon. For some unexplained reason
( a point upon which the author did
not enlighten us) the rector is accom
panied most of the time by his rather
foolish fiancee, to whom the rector has
made a half hearted proposal. To
square himself the rector also proposes
to the prima donna, but she manages
to erracefullv hand him bak to his
original sweetheart The numa donna
winds up by accepting another clergy
man, of far more dignified manner and
bearing than the Rev. Penfield Sturgis.
"Tongues of Men" has no particular
excuse for existence. I have been won
dering ever since why anyone wrote
it and am still more puzzled to learn
why any manager ever produced It
The play would be absolutely hopeless
and a total bore If it was not for a few
witty sidelights.
"Gen. John Resan."
Here Is a genuine satire, one that
warms the heart and tickles the sense
of humor. The fact that it had been
a great success in England did not
prejudice me against it as well It
might England probably appreciated
It because it was a satire on Ireland.
An American tourist supposed to be
worth millions, visits a small Irish
town. He asks to be shown the statue
of Gen. John Regan. No such person
ever existed, but the enterprising na
tives of the town conclude to have such
a statue, feeling that it might be a
profitable investment as an attraction
to tourists.
Complications then follow in rapid
order. A marble figure lying in the
yards of a manufacturer of mortuary
statuary, which the departed had been
unable to pay for, is utilized. The vil
lage is anxious to get a riew pier, and
now feels that it is nearing its goal,
since the lieutenant governor will have
to come to town to unveil the statue of
Gen. Regan. The lieutenant governor,
however, learns there never was "Gen.
Regan," and demands an apology, hold
ing the invitation to the unveiling to
have been an insult The American
tourist then admits that the whole
thing was a hoax.

Johnny Russell, who, the police claim,
at one time was head of the gambling
games of Juarez, was arrested by the
city tetectives Saturday afternoon at
the Santa Fe bridge. Russell was
brought to the police station, where
he was docketed on a charge of being
a suspicious character. His claim
was, according to police chief I. N.
Davis, that he came over from Juarez
to meet Mrs. Russell.
Russell, the chief said, was given the
opportunity of returning to Juarez or
remaining In jail. The chief says that
Russell chose Juarez and was escorted
to the bridge. The detectives say that
Russell told them he was not engaged
in the gambling same any more, but
was running the "Black Cat" In Juarez.

Mexican Retail Clerks' Union Is the Second
Largest In El Paso; Has Made Great Progress
Organized Not Quite Two
Years Ago; It Has 175
Began With Only 35 and
Was Confronted With
Many Obstacles.
(By J. W. Harm, Stereotyper's Union.)
THE International union of Mex
ican retail clerks ha3 made great
progress since Its organization on
Feb. 2, 1912. The charter members
were Marino Vela, CIro Juarez, Re
fugio Rodriguez, Agaplto Angel. Oscar
Prooy and Jose Garcia Conde. The first
election of officers was held on April
14 of the same year. The number of
members enroled in the union at the
time numbered only 35.
Surmounted Difficulties.
Some difficulty was experienced by
the union during the first six months
of its organization. The members were
not easily discouraged, however, the
newly elected officers, who were Man
uel Ramos, president, Manuel Cordero,
secretary and Salomon Uro, treasurer,
devised ways and means to build up a
good strong organization in which they
succeeded, and many new members
joined the union weekly.
Cooperated Satiifnctorlly.
They worked In conjunction with one
another and strove to maintain har
mony and to cooperate with their em
ployers, who recognized their union and
granted the members shorter hours on
request This good work encouraged
more new members to join their ranks.
Affiliated With A. F. L.
On August 18. 1913, the union applied
for affiliation with the American Fed
eration of Labor, which was granted.
The second election of officers was
held Oct 1-. 1913 and the new officers
elected were Antonio Orrantia, presi
dent: Mamfel Cordero, vice president;
Marclal Trevlno, secretary, Jose Garcia
Conde, recording secretary: Jose Maria
Munoz, treasurer; Refugio Rodriguez,
