then took his keys and started to go
toward the door, when he was com

Bridgeport Is now the center of a
storm of protest, as a result of the
government's announcement of a 20
per cent, tax on ai! theatre tickets.
Protest cards to be signed by theatre
patrons have already been circulated
throughout' the audiences at both the
Plaza and Poli's and in connection
with similar action taken in many
other cities, the internal revenue bu
read at Washington will have a big
task placating the various interests
in the country.
Frank O'Connor, manager of the
Park theatre, said today that the in
creased tax would hurt the theatrical
business in general and be a hardship
on the patrons, especially tho poorer
classes who were more in need of
recreation than the others. Mr.
O'Connor said that the present tax
was enough and he did not believe
it should be increased. He even went
as far as to advocate the lifting cf
the 10 per cent, war tax, as soon ls
he peace negotiations had been con
cluded. Matt Saunders, manager of Poll's,
James McCarthy of the Plaza, and
George Arvine of the Lyric, are all
set against the increased tax. Along
with Mr. O'Connor they believe that
it will certainly hurt the theatrical
business and think that the govern
ment in placing this revenue is a trifle
unfair in view of tho admirable work
done by theatrical interests and
actors during the war.
"While the main fight against the 20
per cent, tax will be conducted by
men from New York. Chicago, Phila
delphia, Boston and other large cities,
every protest from smaller places
throughout the country will be filed
with the government officials.

Washington, Jan. 22 A plot on the

Madam Frances Alda, the gifted
soprano, who will be heard at the
Casino, Thursday, Jan. 23rd, is in pri
vate life the wife of Gatti-Gasazza,
manager of the Metropolitan Opera
When Madame Alda speaks of the
future of American singers, she does
so with more than ordinary author
ity. In a recent interview she is quot
ed as saying:
"The future looks very bright for
native singers in this country, because
they have very good voices to start
with and both the pluck and deter
mination to cultivate their natural
gifts. The great drawback is the
lack of experience and drill which
are, owing to present conditions here,
difficult to obtain.
"Strictly speaking there is but one
opera house for the entire c'ountry; to
gain a footing at the Metropolitan
is the aim of every young singer who
longs and hopes to do something in
opera. The prize appears so enticing,
so glittering, that the singer quite
overlooks the years and years of
study, labor, effort and struggle those
of us who are there have gone through
in order to reach this goal. Ameri
can girls are gifted, studious and
ambitious; but one thing they must
realize they cannot all sing at the
Metropolitan: the sooner they learn
this the better.

suffrage probably will not receive
much attention at this session of the
general assembly as its advocates
have announced that they are most
anxious for passage of the amend
ment before congress and will not
press the state amendment this year.
The suffrage association will not send
representatives to the capitol this
session except at specified times, prob
ably when the state amendment is un
der consideration. They will have
suffrage propaganda, however, and
today they sent to each member a
leaflet headed "woman suffrage vic

showing equal suffrage countries of

closed. Lovers of the stars and the mystery
of the heavens will be delighted
Thursday afternoon when they attend
the lecture to be given by B. R.
Baumgardt under the auspices of the
Bridgeport Art League, at The Strat
field ball room. The purpose of this
lecture is to bring into relief the re
cent achievements in celestial pho
tography, and in a popular and un
derstandable way interpret their
bearing on some of the greatest
problems that have yet engaged the
attention of thinking men.
In disclosing the triumphs of the
celestial photography of the starry,
universe the subject becomes sub
lime. Suns and worlds are weighed
in the balance. Giant nebulae, Co
lossal clouds of incandescent matter
"without form and void," situated on
the confines of the universe, will dis
close to the eye the very processes of
creation. It will be a vision of in
finity, in the mid?t of which will
stand forth, the supremacy of law in
the universe.
Mr. Baumgardt has a most won
derful collection of such photographs
which he will throw on the screen
and describe each one carefully in
his interesting talk on the subject
"The Glories and the Romance of the
Heavens." He has a most wonderful
collection of extraordinary photo
graphs of the Milky Way, where the
stars are so numerous that they blend
their light into a luminous haze.

Press Chairman, of The Connecticut
Branch National Woman's Party.
The ratification of the prohibi
tion amendment has been greeted
with intense satisfaction by I? af
fray is ts r-enerally. The satisfaction
is not all due to the fact that most
Suffragists are personally in favor
of prohibition, though this has Ions
been undoubtedly true . It is due
largely to the clearing of the situ
ation as regard Woman Suffrage
which must take place now that
prohibition has become the settled
national policy of the United States.
Again and again in State campaigns
the greatest foes that the Suffragists
have had to encounter have 'been th-i
liquor interests. Every saloon was
a center of opposition to the Suf
fragists when a State campaign for
the ratification of a constitutional
amendment was on foot. Hundreds
of thousands of dollars have been
poured into campaigns against Wo
man Suffrage by men whose chief in
terest was in the manufacture or sale
of liquor, and whoso reason for op
posing Woman Suffrage amendments
was that if the women were given
the right to vote they would use
their votes against liquor.
Onslaught in New Jersey.
In New Jersey in 1915 there wa 9
a tremendous onslaught on Woman
Suffrage by certain machine poli-
ticians headed by "Jim" Nugent
and supported almost entirely by
the saloon interests. New Jersey
it may be noted, is the one state
which the prohibitionists do not
expect to ratify the prohibition
amendment. It is thought prob
able that the amendments will toe
ratified by all the other 4 7 States
even including New York and Con
necticut, but New Jersey will re
main out of the fold and will have
to submit to prohibition perforce
because one wet spot cannot be en
dured in a country whose whole
policy is dry.
Iefcat in Ohio.
In Ohio in 1912 and apaln in
1914 the defeat of the Suffrage con
stitutional amendment was attri
buted almost entirely to the activity
of the liquor interests. In those i
years the liquor trade newspapers
and journals mad-e no secret of
their opposition to Woman Suffrage.

The English tweeds and homespuns,
which have 'bean so pouplar for coun
try clothes, are now being used by
many well-dressed women for town
wear as well. Where this is done, the
suits are necessarily more tailored in
the line and somewhat su-bdued in
color; and, undoubtedly, the chief dis
tinction between sports clothes for
town and those for the country lies in
this very matter of the use of color,
says the Christian Science Monitor.
If a woman is planning a general
utility suit, which moist serve for
morning or business wear in town
and for her week-ends in the coun
try, she could do no better than select
a homespun in one of the soft nrttral
shades of purplish gray or greenish
blue, which he found in this cloth.
Hand-woven wools are lovely, of

Although a suit for winter sports
may take the form of a coat dress, a
sweater suit or merely a coat and
skirt, it must be planned for warmth
and for freedom in walking or skat
ing. A cap, scarf, and muff set of
wool, a pair of hea.vy 'boots, and fur
or fleece-line gloves are the only
"necessary accessories to this outfit,

most desirable, if a separate skirt is

The woman who wishes to indulge
her love for the distinctive in dress
will find a most satisfying opportu

ground of the winter landscape af
fords her great freedom for a venture
in "iiposter" colors, but, if she chooses
to be daring, she must determine to
avoid the merely conspicuous.

against Woman Suffrage; sometimes
reprinting long articles by woman
ami-suffragists which were not in
tended for the pages of a liquor
trade orsan, but which were used ,
as convenient matter to serve the
trade in i;s tight against Woman
Suffrage. In these papers all the'
old liaiiery of woman as an angel ;
too pure for politics, found its place :
and tho stuff about the sacredness '
of the homo and the home as the j
place of i ho woman was repeated ',
ad nauseam. One would think that :
a saloon paper would be the last
to have anything to say about the- i
home, when iis particular trade was .
the one trade which resulted in the :
breaking up of homes and in the
reduction to poverty and misery of j
so many of those angel women who i
wore to be safely caged in the '
home. The only care of the writers ,
and editors of these papers was to ;
keep women powerless to touch ,
their trade, powerless to defend
their homes and safely immured
where they could do no harm to
the saloon or the liquor interests.
Interest Kept Secret.
In more recent years the liquor :
interests have not been so ready to ;
show their hand in opposing wo- ,
man Suffrage. They learned that 1
their opposition was something of a
boomerang which recoiled on their
own heads. But they did not there
fore cease to oppose Woman Suf
frage. They only preferred to do
it more quietly and to hide them
selves more carefully behind the
skirts of the innocent and ignorant
women who formed themselves into
anti-suffrage organizations thus t
affording a beautiful and respect- j
able screen for the more sinister j
forces which were the real enemies (
of Woman Suffrage.
It is in every way a good thing !
for Woman Suffrage that the ques- j
tion of prohibition has been set- !
tied, and that the liquor interests J
have nothing to fear from the votes i
of the women, because they are al-
ready faced with almost immediate j
extinction. The question of Woman i
Suffrage can now Ibe considered on
its own merits without this con
tinual complication of the question
of prohibition, and Its enemies now
consist only of the very few Bour- j
bon Tories who can learn nothing
and who are incapable of progress.
It is something of a disappoint- ;
ir.cnt, of course, that the prohibi- '
tion amendment has got the prece-
J dent.
"As vbite as snow' is one of the
stock comparisons of every day, and
there is nothing on exrth whiter than
newly-fallen snow. its 'vhiteness is
caused by its excessive color. Every
tiny crystal of which it is co:nposed
acts as a prism, and breaks up thj
light into its constituent colors of the -rainbow;
but the crystals are so num-
erous and set at such an infinite num- .
ber of angles that they all neutralize !
each other, and we see the snow per- ;
fectly white.
It was thought until Australia was ;
discovered that all swans were white, j
There they are black. Similarly It is i
thought that all snow is white, and i
the thought is much nearer the truth, ,
for all snow is nnturally white. ' :
Some time ago : :jw of a decidedly j
dark, almost black color fell on the j
Alps, specially on the southern or j
Italian side, where fierce fighting took ;
place in the closing stage of the war. j
Naturalists were greatly interested, j
and many solutions of the snow were j
examined. The consensus of opinion 1
attributed this black snow to the ash- j
es of Mt. Etna, in "Sicily, which had ;
recently been in violent eruption, and j
had vomited forth millions of tons ,
of dust and ashes into the upper at-
"In winter, when their canals are j
frozen, every house is forsaken and i
all people are oa the ice; sleds drawn j
by horses and skating are at that j
time tho reigning amusements." Gold- j
smith wrote of the Dutch: "They i
have boats here that slide on the ice j
and are driven by the winds. When i
they spread all thorr sails they go more
than a mile and a half a minute, and :
their motion is so rapid the eye can j
scarcely accompany them. Their or- i
dinary manner of traveling is very '
cheap and very convenient; they sail j
in covpred boats drawn by horses; and i
in these you are sure to meet people
of all nations. Here the Dutch slum- f

For my part I generally detached ;
myself from all society and was J
wholly taken up in observing the
face of the country. Nothing can j
equal its beauty, wherever I turn my j
eye. the fine houses, elegant gardens, j
statues, grottos, vistas presented j
themselves; but when you enter their j
