Liwtenant Joseph Petrosino was his full cognomen, and, � as such, is � known to every police department throughout the world. His wonderful adventures, thrilling experiences and' marvellous,exploits of hazardous dar-, ing, are too'well known for further detail. .He .'was the awe and dread of every' criminal' tif "both hemispherea, and .W!oe. .b.6tld.e the wrongdoer ,who should come-^ithin the'clutches, or, in fact, within a hailing distance of the 'clever Petrosino. Were it possi-�ble. to keep a rflodrd of the many meetings of, the. "Black . Hand" and other secret societies, we fear there' �would not be. a/building large, enough. :to hold these selfsame records were they piled closely on one another. � The death of Petrosino, at PalnierOi Italy, on Macch 12, ,1909, .brought tp an eod by the Cameras, of Italy, clds-ed^'what promised to be the most wonderful career known, to modern sleuth dom. . ^'^. ,.', , , So, rijuch importance h^s':been-a^-t'affiied^'to the: life and tadyentures, of thi& iiiost woridBrful of-nien that there have been dramas, stories a.nd poems in volumes written around him, but.jt was left to Mr. Sydney Bluementhal to introduce to the Canadian public an entirely new departure, along new, uniciu^ and .novel lines, his entertain;^' ment, which he chooses to style VPet-rosino, the, world's, famous Italian-American detective, in four acts ,and 80 � scen'es,' with'' all the .original" effects, incidental music and electrical surprises/ .

"Down plates" was the order given to be executed at'the most, inconvenient hour of the day, and In all four cases the strikers won, prac-ticalJjr- at their own terms. � , The.flttU strike of the waiters fthd hotel servants was their masterstroke The union declared a strike at one of the leading restaurants of the West end just before noon of the day on whicli one hundred and seventy m'embers of the. Incorporated Hotel-keepers; Association met ,to eat lunch. The waiters' flat demands for immediate concessions 'were not heeded -and there wasi no lunch for anyone. The restaurant imported ' strike' ^breakers and gave its patrons dinner instead of lunch, and the strike still - remains unsettled. Guide At the Morris Tonight and tomorrow night, one of the greatest achievements of the moving picture world will be shown at this theatre, entitled "Dante's Inferno," a five-reel production by the Mil-ano Film ?Co. This picture was run over yesterday afternoon for the benefit of the press, and to say that it is a beautiful work, would be putting it mildly; It is without a doubt a 'wonderful triumph of'photoplay. The entire feature was produced among the Italian mountain scenery, and the scenes are among thc hardest in -the .entire book. Tljis treasure, for six hundred years known but to few scholars, is now "placed in Uinsurpaasable beauty before all mankind. Presented by the film maker, -just as conceived by the immortal poet, the five thousand feet of cineiiiaiograph pictures give you in a few hours all the pleasure and knowledge iti takes months to acquire through books. The management of this theatre 'has do'ne all in its power to present thi^ -work.to its patrons in proper and effective -style; a. complete musical programme, and, in addition, a lecturer wllVexplain the different scenes as they appear on the curtain. The prices for this wonaerful attraction, will, be twe.nty-tive cents any seat in the house. An additional feature df't'tte evening, will be the first appeatance of the Morris Theatre new four^piece orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Gaskell. �r � e J-essie Bell at Starland Tonight .Miss Jessie Bell, the dainty comedienne, commences her engagement at Starland tonight.
