The Inter-state Milkmaids' con
vention held at Keith's hall last
evening was attended by about
twenty delegates representing sev

Germany where the fin de siecle

As a curtain raiser, the initiation
of Mary Ellen Lease into the first
degree of Masonry was given, and
created considerable amusement.
The proceedings of the conven
tion were of the usual routine na
ture, namely, the adoption of reso
lutions, election of officers and the,
reading of reports by the delegates
representing their respective so
cieties. The proceedings through
out were of an amusing nature, and
seyeral "scraps", such as occur in

only averted by the chair-maid's
vigorous use of the gavel, which in
this instance was a deep-tonedcow
bell. Several letters of regret were
received from noted persons an

is a creat deal of life in "The Globe

Although the company is excep
tionally good it remains a fact that
William Hoey (Old Hoss) is the
most amusing element iii the per
formance. He is called the tramp
and masquerades as a woman and
an English lord, but he is really
plain old Bill Hoey all the time.
You cannot look at liim tor nair a
minute and refrain from laughing,
as he pervades the entire piece
talking a little and singing a little
in that extraordinary way of his
asrainst all vocal laws and sans
tune;sans time and sans everything,
he amuses all the time.
With Hoey on the stage almost
all the time the audience is in no
danger of 3Tawning or finding a dull
moment, and to make matters still
more cheerful, if possible, Hoey has
urrounded himself with such peo
pie as Frederic Bryton, M. A. Ken
nedy, Louis DeLange, Burton Coll
ver, R. T). Abbey, Mrs. Dion
Boucicault (Louise Thorndyke).
Miss Gerome Edwardy, Ada Alex
andra, Hoey still sings "The Man
who Broke the Bank at Monte

character entitled "I went to Paris
with Papa," which bids fair to be
come equall v- popular.
