At the Haymarket theater, Chicago, this week several very good acts are on the bill, and one In which appeared for the first time to a Chicago audience- Pearson & Joell in a sketch laid out on the coast. Mr. Pearson as Nuget, a China- man, gave the audience as good an Imi- tation of the real thing as has been seen here and the act bids well for a successful season In this section. Tom Nawn, with his company, are the same as ever, and, of course, are the head- liners. George Alexander gets off with so me very good jokes and songs. Irene Romaine has a very good personality and makes a good hit considering the songs. Madam Vallecita Leopards Is one of the few animal acts that is really good, and It deserves credit. Four Musical Hodges, Lockwood & McCarty, Fred and Mae Waddell, Kllmdt Bros. and the Kinodrome completed a very good entertainment. ATTORNEY RAE AVERS EX-AGENT IS IMMORAL. (Continued from page 3.) tried by a jury on the charge of con- spiracy. Roe, who worked with might and main to prosecute Henderson at the time he was alleged to have been responsible for two little girls being sent out of the city of Chicago into a disreputable place under the supposition that they were being sent to fill show positions. Mr. Farwell made a short talk In which he said that the league was try- ing to check the "white slave traffic" and that while it was not out to kill anyone or wreck his business, that it was trying to uplift humanity and save young girls from a life of shame, He said that objection would be made to Henderson getting a license. Roe, suffering with hoarseness, was given close attention and his testimony was taken by the board. Roe recalled the case wherein Henderson was in- dicted on three charges but only tried on one, the case coming up In May of last year. Ida Parker and Evelyn Krause, two pretty girls, working In a department store, so the story goes, were approached by a woman one day and after being flattered as to their at- tractive qualities, offered them a place on the stage. According to the testi- mony and to Roe's statement before the commission, the girls went to a saloon where it is claimed Henderson and the girls had some drnks Roe told the commission that Hender- son and the girls went to a hotel at the northwest corner of Lake and Clark streets, where, according to the evi- dence, Henderson attempted to assault one of the girls. Later, the story goes, the girls went to Springfield, Ill., where they worked In a place where Intoxi- catingwines and liquors were sold, the girls being expected to solicit "drinks" and do things which were not said to beIn the contract. It was also claimed that Henderson got a commission on the girls' contract. After telling the story of Henderson's trial, Roe, In closing, made an appeal to the commission for the sake ofcommon decency and all that Is good to decline Henderson alicense on the grounds that he isan Immoral man. He said serious ~it~ objectionw ould bemade to the Issuance of alicense to him. Attorney McIntyre asked for more time and the commission announced that the matter would be again taken up ata session ofthe board on Friday morning, Nov. 5, at 10 o'lock. Attorney McIntyre is the second law- yer to take up Henderson's case, Mr. Mandel being his former attorney. At- torney Roe, during the course of his statement, said that most of the law- yers of today emphatically decline to CLIFFORD G. ROE. Ex-Assistant State's Attorney, Who is Making Strenuous Objection to the Issuance of an Employment Agency License to Win. F. Hen- derson on the Grounds that he is an Immoral Man. have anything to do with pandering cases and that a bitter fight would be made by the Law and Order League to wipe out the "White Slave" traffic. Mr. McIntyre said he knew nothing of the case, but would give it careful attention. He made quite an eloquent appeal to Chairman Farwell to give Henderson another chance Inasmuch as the latter was so afflicted that he had no other means of earning a livelihood and that he would conduct his business with the strictest regularity. The indictments, which may be flashed at Henderson, are on a charge of en- ticing females into houses of a ques- tionable character and they will un- doubtedly block any further attempt of Henderson getting an employment agency license. Sues Theater Manager. Suits have been brought in the Cir- cuit court for $25,000 each by Mrs. Mary Heater, 4012 Prairie avenue, and her daughter, Mary Heater, 14 years old, against Samuel Von Ronkel, 502 Forty-second street, owner ofthe Man- hattan Electric theater, at Fifty-ninth street and Wentworth avenue. The plaintiff claims that while leaving the theater last December the girl was seized by Von Ronkel and attacked by him. ON CLT G. BARLOW, JR. Popular Vaudevillian Dies After Three Weeks' Illness-Was Only Son of ramous Minstrel Man After years of life in the limelight, the final curtain has been rung down on Harry M. Barlow, a well-known vaudeville artist, who in the theatrical profession was more familiary known as Milt G. Barlow, Jr., his last breath being taken at 1:30 o'clock on the after- noon of November 1, at his apartments at 710 North Clark street. His demise is attributed to a complication of dis- eases. After several years' illness, which cost him much money, and his subsequent inability to regain his former health, reduced Milt Barlow, Jr., to poverty, and when he died the popular vaude- villian was in destitute circumstances. News of his demise had no sooner flashed along the Rialto than sympa- thetic hearts and willing hands came to the assistance of the surviving wid- ow and seven-year-old daughter. From tieActors' Fondcame alsum ofmoney, and this, with what Col. F. J. Owens, Charles Ellis, Mr. West, of West & Fowler, Charles Parker, Emily Howard and other kind friends raised through subscription, was sufficient to defray the funeral expenses. Marlow appeared in vaudeville with his wife, the team being known as Bar- low & Nicholson, and their act was pro- duced in Chicago three weeks ago, when 1Barlow became too ill to work. At that time they opened at one of the vaude- ville houses, having proved a big hit at the other theaters, and were in for a run when Barlow was forced to quit work. Despite his peculiar mannerisms and eccentric ways, Milt Barlow, Jr., was a good fellow, and he had many friends. He was at one time a mem- ber of the Newcastle (Pa.) lodge of Elks and was also affiliated with Actors' Union No. 1 of New York city. Barlow also belonged to the T. M. A., at Rochester, N. Y. He was the only son of the late Milt Barlow, the famous minstrel man, whose death occurred about three or four years ago. The latter is well re- membered as one of the prime movers of the Barlow, Wilson, Primrose & West minstrels. The remains of Barlow were laid to rest In a new Catholic cemetery In the suburbs and the obsequies were con- ducted by the Chicago lodge of Elks. Members of the Chicago Actors' Union acted as pallbearers. The work of his artist brothers and si sters In raising money within a re- markablyshorttime forthe funeral ex- penses was commendable and showed that they were generous and loyal to those In distress or need. Colonel Ow- ens, who knew Barlow from a mere mite in jumpers, proved of great service in rendering assistance to the bereaved widow. Barlow has a mother living in New York city and a sister of his Is one of the Two Sidonias, now playing vaude- ville. He had twice appeared in Europe. FOR RHODA ROYAL SEO.
