VIOLENCE MARKS III n&SHitf fiimland
FOR FIRST TIME
Police Called Into Action to
Quell Sympathizers, Who
Endeavor to Enter
Winnipeg, June 2. Violence by
strike sympathizers in a parade of
2,000 men today marked the eigh
teenth day of the general strike
here. For the first time since the
strike began, Winnipeg policemen
were called into action and demon
strants who attempted to force
their way into the Board of Trade
building were checked by police
men, detectives and volunteers.
The paraders first marched to the
provincial parliament building, for
the third time since Friday, and
demanded the resignation of Pre
mier T. C. Norris and his cabinet
on the grounds of "incompetency."
Premier Norris announced he had
not receded from his previous
stand, that he would do nothing re
garding provincial legislation which
the union men are demanding until
the sympathetic strike is called off.
Howard Lloyd, a business man,
who stood on the curb wearing a
Canadian flag on his coat, refused
to remove the flag and several of
the marchers attacked him. He
proudly displayed the emblem still
on his torn coat after the melee.
The most important strike devel
opment today from a conciliation
standpoint was an announcement by
the railroad brotherhood executives.
attempting to mediate the contro-1
versy, that they had transmitted to
the executives of the. Winnipeg
Metal Trades council an offer of
settlement which had been received
from the heads of Winnipeg's three
leading iron works.
Premier Norris and his cabinet
were requested to resign by speak
ers of the delegation of returned
soldiers, strikers and strike sym
pathizers, who took possession of
the provincial legislative chamber
for the third time today. Premier
Norris told the crowd that he would
riot give up his office, but that he
would use every effprt to obtain
legislation which might tend to im
prove industrial conditions in Mani
toba. A few of the commercial tele
graphers who have been on strike
returned today, it was announced at
one of the offices.
John Barrett Kills
Self, Thinking He Was
n f t. tf l
to e Lett Homeless
John Barrett, an umbrella mender,
50 years old, shot and killed himself
at 8:45 last night when his niece.
Mrs. F. O. Fleu, Seventy-fourth and
Main streets, Benson, told him that
she and her family were to move
today, and leave him, as he thought,
without a home.
Barrett locked himself in a room
of his niece's home, shot twice into
the floor and then sent a bullet
through his brain. Police believe
that he discharged the two bullets
into the floor to see what effect it
would have on his relatives and as
they, thinking he was pretending,
failed to go to his side, he killed
A doctor was sent from Central
station when the shooting was re
ported. Barrett was dead when the
doctor arrived. The doctor said
Barrett's wound was instantly fatal.
At midnight, police had been un
able to locate any of the county at
torneys and the body still lay in a
pool of blood on the floor where it

- AT THE
OMAHA extended a cordial
greeting to Henry Miller, Ruth
Chatterton and their select com
pany of associates at the Brandeis
theater last night when "A Marriage
of Convenience" was offered in all
of its picturesque costumes and its
bright and epigrammatic lines.
This four-act comedy by Alex
ander Dumas, and adapted by Syd
ney Grundy, has a charm which
takes firm hold of the auditor and
carries him on from scene to scene
with its scintillating dialogue. The
humor is as delicate as the costumes
which Miss Chatterton wears of the
period of 1750. The story does not
tax the mental processes, and yet
there is enough of a plot to hold the
interest until the end, when the
Comtesse De Candale discovers that
she loves her husband, the comte.
Mr. Miller, as the Comte De Can
dale, offers an artistic interpretation
of the male sartorial refinements of
will go a long ways for a friend, but
who meets an impasse when he en
counters ridicule even from a friend.
In brocades and silks and the rest
o fthe male sartorial refinements of
the days of Louis XV, this eminent
actor is himself a picture. Miss
Chatterton is the real comtesse of
the young woman's day dreams. She
is dainty and pretty and is the ad
mired of all who have the privilege
of seeing her in this series of cos
tumes which she wears.
The use of one scene for the four
acts of the play sustains Mr. Mil
ler's contention that scenery does
not make the play. The subtle
humor of this comedy is enough to
justify itself to the discriminating
attendant. The story reveals to
people of this day and age that hu
man nature was not much different
in the year 1750 A. D., and that
when Louis XV was holding down
the throne there were eternal trian
gles and quadrangles, and a woman
even then was not mistress of her
own heart. There is no attempt at
any time in this delightful comedy
to force the action for mere dramat
Lucile Watson won deserved ap
probation for her clever acting in
the role of Marton who is counselor
and maid to the comte. More versed
in the ways of the world and of the
ways of men, she teacheslhe comte
a few lessons in the art of flirting.
She tells her mistress that "flirting
is the art of making a man love you
and then of getting rid of him when
you are tired of him."
Charles Trowbridge, as Chevalier
De Valclos has a nice conception of
the temperament of a man who loves
a young woman who has married
for convenience as in the case of the
comtesse. The chevalier maintains
a proprietary interest in the com
tesse and when the right time ar
rives he gracefully retires from the
scene. The comte, a man who has
had an affair with a marquisette,
four times married and once a wid
ow, comes to the realization that
he loves his wife who tried the
never-failing ruse of jealousy.
David Glassford made an excellent
general. The play may be accepted
as an artistic triumph and it was so
received by a crowded house last
night. Matinee and evening per
formances today will close the pres.
The Florida Four, colored quartet
appearing at the Empress theater,
are creating a veritable riot with
their harmony singing and comedy.
The oriental dancing number by
Emma Francis and her Arabs fur
nishes exceptional entertainment.

the B. F. Goodrich Rubber
Company herewith declares a
more mileage adjustment on
Goodrich Tires 6,000 miles for
SAFETY TREADS, and 8,000
miles for SILVERTOWN CORDS.
Fix these new Goodrich Adjustment

miles for SILVERTO WNS instead of
the 3,500 and 5,000 miles respectively
heretofore in force.
This new adjustment stands back of
all Goodrich Tires, including tires
already purchased in the hands of
user or dealer.
Goodrich Tires in actual usage on road
and pavement are today unfolding
such matchless mileage, regularly in
excess of adjustment basis, that
Goodrich knows it has the strongest;'
most durable tires the rubber indus
try has produced
The Goodrich adjustment mileage is
increased because Goodrich knows,
the mileage in its tires, and it wants
to give every motorist a share in their
economy, and all-around benefits.
Go to a Goodrich Dealer, and buy a
Goodrich Tire or buy four Goodrich
Tires sure that with fair and square
usage a Safety Tread will render you
at least 6,000 miles; and a Silvertown
Cord at least 8,000.
