The 'Avolo trio, however, ii their Xylophone selections, including the ever welcome William Tell over- ture and a somewhat original antl clever march composed by one o their number were loudly encored Tom Branttord succeeded in matting his hearers roar with laughter while the great and only Albini was there- with'the mystic hand in a variety of tricks and illusions. Albini is in a cjass by himself. The program on whole' is worthy of liberal patronage. Albini will 'be at the Majes- tic during the remainder of this week.

This season the management announces that theythavo. idde'rt many novel features to those vhich are considered a part and par- cel of the conventional circus, Amongst these are several new Euro- lean novelties, which have never .he- ore been seen in this country, the wonder of it nil being how the Sells-: Wota people can give such a marvel- rtis performance at such .a small (rice. That they arc afolerto do so, how-' ivcr, is proven by the fact that for lirce years now they have the, inic-honored price ,in half and made' nonsy by doing so, alb of which goes ,o show thai even in the circus vorld, and where the daily expenses un up into the Lhcoryj popular prices is practical.

Now Me great Cardinal Cavallarl, pain- arch: of Venice, a personal friend of Pius X., has taken up the question and in a discourse in the Cathedral of Queen, of Adriac he told the women of Venice, and through the press, the wonicii of all Italy what the church thinks, of those who dress in the present extreme styles. His scathing deuuncijiuou must have caused some searching of heart in many of his congregation! It 'was noticeable that the confessionals were overcrowded with they appeared in the objectionably cut garments, and have, not yet discarded them. Tho Cardinal's discourse is inter- esting outside of Italy. what St_ Peter said on the subject of women's garments and adornment and asked the pertinent question, whether such was the lead- ing; idea among the women of the present day. Then he "Today the immodesty of mode of dressing'of many women has arrived at such a point that even men, who arc naturally virtuous, are disgustci and repelled. Where is the modesty o thufio who wear the present .day cos- tunic What does nu- dity niean Imt'lack.of virtue. "I declare how, publicly, that at tho first Sunday communion at m'j house I shall not allow any one- dr ed in that way to appear with chil- dren. I, am at home there and shall assert my authority The patriarch then made a passion- ate appeal to tfie'farmers of familiei to put a stop to the abuse. The discourse recalls'the situation in last year in re- gard to the same subject. The clergy had been preaching against the im- modesty-of the fashions, and a cam- paign had begun .when the question was (taken.up by'the anti-clerical ele- ment, who .declared in favor of the tight skirts. The led to riots for which the police had to be called out, whenever a priest and woman in tight skirts met on the streets, the passersby immediately taking sides according to their opin- ion. Pius X has not .publicly support- ed the' patriarch's criticism for the reason that not .very long ago he is- sued a statement himself on the cub- ject, but he has sent to the carninal ari autograph letter of approval, and caused it .to be known that, although he has not himself seen the obnoxious garments, he that every priest and every man should fight against the immodest tendencies of the day Empress Passengers Made Grand Rush for Cameras (Continued from front; 1 Due' to Dense Fog A vivid description of the accident was given toy a British naval officei on hoard the Empress, who withheld his name on the ground that naval etiquette.prevented him from making to the affair un- til after the official investigation. He said that lie had carefully watched the whole events connected with the collision, and had. concluded that It was entirely due. to the dense fog, the commanders of each boat doing everything possible, under the circum- stances. ''We'were going along--very careful- said he, "making about six knots, feeling-pur way hi .the thick fog, and had it not been for the quick action of Captain Murray, there might have been a disaster to that ot the since it was en- tirely due to his work that the Em- press hit the Helvetia, Instead of the collier, ramming, the liner, which would have certainly meant -that she would liave sunk with probably, great loss of life. Cry of Alarm "I' "was on declc at the time, and watched our glow progress in the fog which had lasted Mreral: hours. Sud- denly there wan a of alarm from the man. In the crow's nest, and at the-aame 'moment the hulk of the Helvetia within fifty yards di- rectly ahead of us, apparently nearly across our 'bows. 'Immediately one blast of the Em- press whistle was given, showing a ship on the starboard bow, and the Empress' helm was put to starboard, two blasts being given to let the othflr vessel know whait we. were doing. Im- mediately afterwards three short blasts were Bounded to tell the Hel- vetia that the Empress engines were running full speed astern. "The Helvetia, being a small boat, had no s nest lookout to see us rtmentg as soon as ne saw her Hearing the Empress whistle, she apparentl> thought she was meeting a ship, in- stead cf which we were running into her .broadside. The captain of the boat running onto the sand banks. Nearly Empress passengers were on deck at the time, but there was riot the, slightest suggestion of panic, even the women, behaving with wonderful cairn. "It was at once apparent that the Helvetia must sink, and Capt. 'Murray signalled the Empress engineer to go slowly-ahead. In. this way the Hel- vetia .was -practically impaled on the boWB of the Empress, very much as a pair of eyeglasses on a nose, aud was kept afloat by the impetus of the Em- press. Empren Boatf Ready "In the meantime the port boats of the Empress had been lowered, arid were cruising around, ready ito. save any of the crew-of the Helvetia. But the'offleers and crew of the. Helvetia had uo need of boats, they simply swarmed up the bow of the Empress, which was. firmly1 embedded In their decks, and found safety without diffi- culty. "Then came the crucial time. For thirsty-three minutes, the Empress had kept, the--collier'Afloat by pushing her through the water, as she -filled through the huge hole in her side. Dangerous Period "As soon all'the crew were sav- ed, and it was plain no more could be done, Capt. Murray ordered the enginee full speed'astern In shake the Empress free of the other vessel. But tthe bows of the liner were stuck so firmly in the middle the other ship.that for some time she would not get away. Thus the Empress wna backing up.with a.dead weight of tons stuck to her bows, and the position was much more critical than any of the passengers imagined, as theve was danger that the Helvetia'in ..breaking away might tear' out the fore part of the Em- press and flood her two forward com- MAJESTIC THEATRE TO-NIGHT and all the week THE GREAT Albini-Avolo Vaudeville Co.

Helvetia ported his helm, which was the proper thing to he had gone to starboard he would have ram- med the Empress in the middle, with almost certainty of sinking her with her 720 passengers. "By .that time we were close to the other ship, although the Empress en ginos were running full astern; and prow of the Empress struck the smaller boat square amidships at the engine room. Little Shock 'It was amazing how HlUe shock .here was.

Helvetia Sinks "Then, with- a strange, lurching movement, the Helvetia .took a per- pendicular position, her bows point- ing straight up, and her stern under water. followed a few moments of almost complete silence, and then the vessel with a curious, slow, sliding movement, making hard- ly a perceptible wash as she sank. It was a most imprcealve sight, and so exactly suggestive of the loss of the Titanic, that it caused 2. vory sensation amongst our passengers, even though they knew that by some happy chance even been In- jured.
