not the real goods, however, or it is
not likely she would have had to go

New Orleans. La.. Jan. 14. "I am
going- to qui! the stage until it is de
termined that the theatrical syndicate
has no claim nn me. If the courts de
cide that it has I shall not play at all.
I will not play under any other man
agement than that of David Pelaseo.
My tour ended tonight." So said David
Warfield. the comedian, Saturday even
ing after the performance of "The
Auctioneer." in which he has been ap
pearing here. Warfield is one of the
biggest money makers on the stage,
and it is said that the profits from his
tour last season were $40.0)0. His de
cision to quit even in the midst of
prosperity is due to hi differences
with Klaw A Erlanger. the principal
firm in the theatrical syndicate. War
field's trouble had its beginning in
proceedings brought by Joseph Prooks
against Pelasco, which have ended in
a receivership for the company.
Prooks averred that lie was a part
ner in "The Auctioneer." and llelasco
aii-vvered that Drunk was not a part
ner in anv sense, but the dummy f
Klaw V Krlanger. to whom. Pelasco
says, he had to give a half interest in
the show to get anv bookings. The
matter came up before Supreme
Court Justice Leventritt in New York
a few days ago, and he gave both
sides five days in which to agree on
a receiver. As Warfield refuses to
play any longer no receiver will le

NEW RATES OF MODERN
WOODMEN NOW IN EFFECT
Modern Woodmen camps of the
United States are now under the new
rates, which went into effect Jan. 1
in compliance with the plan adopted
at the head camp meeting at Indian
apolis. Clerks of the local camps
have had their hands full in getting
things running under the new laws
but the changes have been met and
now the camps arc in smooth sailing.
The assessments made on members
will no longer be numbered by years,
beginning each year with number one,
etc., but the first assessment of this
year will be numbered T.it" and the
numbers of assessments will be con
tinued for the rest of the time from
this number. In the 21 vears of the
order's life only 19. assessments have
been made all told and the new order
of things starts the numbering in
accordance with this whole number.
The members of the order have been
sent a circular in regard to the
changes, an excerpt from which reads
"Assessments must be paid before
the first day of the month following
their call not on the first as we used
to do. As the assessment of every
member who is living en the date of
the call must be paid, and before
claim in case of death will be settled.
it is wiser to pay earlier in the month
than the last day and you avoid the
risk of suspension by forgetting it
at the last moment."
