STAGED BY JCUAN MITCHELL 7C The Original 715 9 New York Cast i ROCKLAND, Me. Dec 26 Charles Arnold, a stone mason, who was one time engaged In business in Lynn, Mass, fell lown a flight of stairs at his boarding place, 36 Willow st, early this morning and sustained a broken neck.

Arnold and his brother, Alvin L. Arnold, arrived at the former's boarding place about midnight. They conversed in Charles' room a few moments and were then heard by other boarders to descend the flight of stairs from the third floor. Annie Annie, the landlady, was roused from her slumbers by the sound of a heavy fall, but as she heard the street door close and somebody go out she thought nothing serious had happened. Alvin Arnold made his way to the police station, told the officers that his brother was in trouble and asked their assistance.

The police told Arnold to go home and if his brother was still in need of help they would go. Alvin, however, returned to his rooms in another part of the same block, and the tragedy did not become known until a milkman stumbled over the body lying in a pool of blood at 6 o'clock this morning. 'ihe matter was investigated by Coroner Judkins and the local authorities, but no inquest was held. Arnold was about 60 and unmarried. tf d26 2t (126 Hf llC-rir" Evenings at 8 i wa a Mat.

Dec 25-As the day for, the 75th Maine legislature to convene. Jan 4, approaches, the Interest in the several contests for places of honor and emolument increases. The tight which overshadows all th- others Is the struggle for 8 senatf Of late the candidates with their supporters have become very active and the papers throughout the state have almost daily contained estimates of the strength of the four contestants. This section of the state is naturally interested. In the success of Charles V.

Johnson of Watervllle, and his friends have been hard at work since election to land him in the position so long occupied by Hon Eugene Hale. They appear to be confident of victory and oase their conliaonce on the claim that after caret ully canvassing the democratic members they have votes to spare. Taking the state by counties the Johnson supporters informed a Ulobe mau today mat William M. Pennell of BrunswicK is no.nniaily sure of the four senators from Cuinoerlaml. although Jt is asserted that one ui tne quartet is as yet unpledged.

The only senator pledged to Obadiah Gardner is senator uapies ot Knox. George F. Haley of Yo.k county ha no support in tne upptr branch. There wilt be 22 Ueiouctuts Ui tne senate. Of the 17 not Liuiiiwueu lo are claimed to have pledged tnemselves to Johnson.

Of the members of the house, Johnson men claim the unanimous Aiaorsement of the democratic ueiegations from Aroostook four, Piscataquis two, Somerset six, Washington six. Hancock four, Kennebec nine; total 31. In Penobscot jonnson claims the indorsement of elgnt ot tne, li representatives. The others may support Gardner. There will be three democrats from Waldo, of whom Johnson has two, while the other is unpieugeu.

In Knox, Gard-fiti's home county, one of ih six rep-Pesentatives is pim.geu to oiinson. Lincoln county will have three democrats iri the next house, of wno.n two will support Johnson, it is saiu. One of the two from Sagadahoc is pieuged to Gardner while the other is understood to be favorable to Johnson. The six democrats from York will support Haley as long as he is a candidate. Androscoggin's tight democrats are divided in their allegiance between Johnson and Gardner, just how nobody knows, although both candidates claim a majority.

Cumberland's 14 will probably all support Pennell. The lone democrat from Franklin county has steadfastly refused to pledge himself. Allowing an even break in Androscoggin between Jonnson and Gardner. COLONIAL THEATRE Chas. Frohman Wm.

Harris. lessees Mgrs. All day yesterday, and Judging by the size of the force at work most of last night, the force of clerks, carriers) an.l foremen were on duty at the centrnl postofflce, trying to get through same of the extra work piled up for them by persons who failed to mall their Chrisqi mas cards, letters and presents early enough. This morning nhere will be one delivery of mall matter throughout the city, but it is looked upon as extremely doubtful If the carriers will be able to deliver all of the mail which has been sorted in the last day or two, even though all the extra available carriers will be put on the Job. In every sorting section at the postofflce and the branch offices crowds of men were working yesterday and last night Many of the men, for whom Sunday, and especially Christmas, is usually a holiday, were said to have been pressed into service to meet the emergency.

Postmaster Mansfield personally visited the central office and watched the work In the several rooms during the morning. The foremen ana others in charge seemed rather reticent when asked for statements as to how things were going, and would only smile and say that everything was running smoothly. No one, except eye-witnesses to the busy scenes, can have the faintest idea of the amount of mail matter over which the force are working. There seems to be an especially heavy lot of papers and circulars, while the letters and packages, although coming in faster than they can go out, are being disposed of more readily. It should be understood that the blame for the delay of the mail, especially of packages and papers, lies with the senders rather than with the local postal authorities.

For some weeks before the holiday season began notices were posted requesting that packages and holiday letters and cards be mailed early, and explaining that if this were done it would save much extra work and delay. Just how much longer the carriers and extra men will be pressed into service as sorters for incoming mall is not known, nor can it be estimated. Postmaster Mansfield is at work on the problem and he and his assistants are doing all in their power to ease the labors of the men, and at the same time get the holiday mall out as soon as -possible. Tho scenes at the local express offices differed greatly from those at the post-offices. Although several companies had teams out with late deliveries the men at the offices said that practically all the Christmas business was over yesterday morning and that there were no bundles waiting to be delivered for lack of men, nor time.

Overture at 1:46 and 7:30 Gifts for the Children Every Afternoon SHU BE RT Evenings at 8:20 NORWOOD, Dec 26 The formal opening of the new St Catherine's church at Norwood, Mass, occurred today, the first mass being celebrated by the rector, Rev Thomas J. MacCormack, at 6 a the high mass by Rev John M. Corrlgan, assistant priest. At all the masses was read a letter of congratulation from Archbishop O'Connell. Fr MacCormack, also conveyed the special blessing of the pope, by permission given personally to the rector by the holy father' last summer.

The church was filled at all the masses. The music was rendered by the regular choir, Miss Frances Hennessey, organist. At the high mass the sermon was by Rev James Maguire SJ, of Boston college. Vesper service was held in the evening. The church is one of the handsomest in the country, well located in the center of the town at the corner of Washington and Nahatah sts.

The archl-tectuarl style is designed to solve the parochial church problem of being both economical and artistic. The English perpendicular treatment of structural masses makes an ecclesiastical type of architecture that is seriously beautiful and compelling, possessing picturesque variety and sturdy vitality of construction. St Catherine's church has been thus modeled, avoiding cheap appeal through extraneous ornamentation; shaping the lines modestly adhering to the sound laws of proportion illustrated in the best mediaeval churches. The historical standard is especially evident In the Interior. The structural lines in heau-tiful masonry with carved capitals of varied form, yet keeping the cost of the building much lower than is usually allowed for churches of the same magnitude.

The church will seat 1050 and there is also a morning chapel opening oh Nahatan st, to be known as the chaoel of the Blessed Sacrament and seating 200. It is so disposed in reflrence to the main church that the chancel of each is accessible directly from the large sacristy. One of the unique features of the new church is the location of the tower, which is built directly over the chancel vails and rises to a considerable hlght above the nave roof. The proportions of the tower are unusually massive. The termination of the external lines of tho structure, a slender fleche of copper supporting the cross, rises from the center of the square tower, examples of which are frequently found in French and English churches.

The building is constructed of gray Roman brick with Indiana limestone trimmings. MATINEE TODAY AT 2:20 FORBES-ROBERTSON In "The Passing of the Third Floor Back." JENNINGS TELLS OF OFFERS.

WILKESBARRE, Dec 26 Manager Hughey Jennings of the Detroit team, talking to Wilkesbarre friends today about the outlook for the Tigers next season, said that Detroit would give the Athletics a hard fight, providing pitcher Willets, Summers and Mullin showed their usual good form. He also spoke highly of the young material to be tried out, stating that Del Drake, who played center field for Wilkesbarre last season, would get every chance for a regular position.

At New York, Jennings said, several trades were offered him. Boston, he added, wanted to give pitcher Wood and catcher Carrigan for catcher Schmidt and pitchers Mullin and Summers. This he refused, and also turned down a couple of deals involving outfielder Mclntyre and Matty may be seen in the Tig-era' outfield next sea- SEATS TOMORROW 0LGA NETHERS0LE In Maeterlinck's MARY MAGDALENE Mail Orders Now.

H. WOODS PRESENTS THE GIRL IN THE TAXI With Carter De Haven and original company DEMOCRATIC IN HER LIKES. Miss Helen Taft Sticks to Her Old Friends Despite Glamor of Her High Social Position. WASHINGTON, Deo 26-Miss Helen Taft is fast winning the name of being the most democratic belle in Washington. Despite the fact that she is dally a guest at cotillons, dinners, luncheons and teas given in her'honor.

Miss Taft Is the same sensible, unspoiled young woman she was In her school To the glamor of great fortunes she seems to be indifferent, and the fact that some of her friends are but modestly provided with this world's goods is no bar to her attachment for them. One Of the young women from Bryn Mawr whom Miss Taft invited to be one of guests at a house party recently at the White House is a girl who is earning her way through college. A few hours after she arrived Miss Taft said: "If there is any one whom you would like to meet let me know and I will arrange it for you." The guest named an acquaintance who Is an employe of one of the departments, whom she had met the previous summer oft a camping excursion. The next day the government clerk received an invitation to take tea Informally with Mrs Taft and Miss Taft at the White House the following day. When she arrived she found a company which included a number of the most distinguished women in Washington.

The cordiality with which she was received delighted the gest. It also convinced her that Miss Taft is putting no barriers between the White House and the wage-earner. It has been remarked that many of those who have given entertainments in honor of Misa Taft are in somewhat modest circumstances and not accounted among the smart set of Washington They are, however, friends of Miss Taft, to whom she became attached in her school and Sunday school days. She has accepted these Invitations and apparently enjoyed the simple events in her honor as much as those given by the smartest hostesses whose fortunes are counted by millions. Similarity of tastes and interests la apparently the strongest attraction which others can exert with Miss Taft.

The constancy of her friendship ta also remarkable. That intense, but often fleeting friendships of girls has never apnealed to her. She makes friends rather slowly, but she makes them, apparently, for life. CHRISTMAS AT VATICAN. Pope Plus Has His Sisters and Niece as Guests and Receives Many Messages.

Later he saw some of his household and the secretary of state. Cardinal Merry del Val, who wished to renew tneir greeting, but all of the audiences were of a private character.

The matter is discussed quite freely in the exclusive circle In which the Cooks have moved.

CINCINNATI, Dec 25 Members of the national baseball commission are said to be convinced that two more major leagues are on the way and are acting accordingly. The commission's agents have been working on reports that the American association will expand and that the Eastern league contract may be broken under the guise of a fight for reclassification next October, when the present agreement expires.

According to the reports, unless the major leagues represented by the com THE PLAY BEAUTIFUL 6t d26 cue ROSARY the former will have t5 votes, 11 more than enough to win. Gardner will have 14. Pennell IK, all from Cumberland, Haley six from York, while four ars unpledged. Allowing Gardner the entire Androscoggin delegation, Johnson will still have seven more than the necessary 54, while the Knox county candidate will be tied with Pennell. If these figures, are as the Johnson workers declare they are, Johnson will win.

Davis of Watervllle, twice the standard bearer of his party for governor, and Fred B. Wiggin of Saco. Both claim enough votes to win.

For state treasurer James F. Singleton of Bangor. George W. Pottle of Lewlston, at present state assessor, and E. E.

Brady of Ellsworth are the contestants. There are three candidates for commissioner of agriculture, W. T. Gup-till of Bowdoinham. William G.

On arrival in New York Friday they sent greetings to relatives at home with tne announcement that they were to spend a day in the metropolis and would reach here in time for the holiday. The greater part of their time abroad was spent in London, Paris and in neighboring places.

Baseball and the signing of players was forgotten for a time. Now that Manager Donovan is at home his thought is of the success of the Red Sox, and he predict, that Boston will have a team that will show up well at the very start. "We are going to have a good team." he said, "and one that will do well." He plans to go to Boston Tuesday and confer with Pres Taylor relative to the work before them, preliminary to the start of the team south.
