The Schooner's Arrival Marked he
Opening Page of New Trade V
Last night at Jl. o'clock the" schooner
L N.. Dantsler reached the. fnmlng basin
at Port Houston and the first chapter
L regarding the history of direct trade re-
lanons dpi wen Houston ana the republic
of Mexico 'was written. The cargo she
brought on this her initial trip .is made
up .of hides and hair contained Jn the
lower hold. The" docks are packed with
a large consignment of cocoanuts pine-
apples oranges and lemons shipped
from the port of Tamplco Mexico: The
schooner left that port on. the morning
of May 12 and made good time and ex-
perienced not the slightest trouble during
the trip. The average speed .covered
by her during the voyage was about ten
miles per hour. No difficulty was ' ex-
perienced on the Journey up the ship"
channel 'and as a result the . promoters
of the enterprise feci highly elated over
the bright .prospects- for a strong trade
along these lines with Mexico.
The schooner L. . N.' .Dantzler 1a - an
American vessel her captain being Cap-
atln Soderstrom. - She vas constructed
In Scranton Mississippi" her port of
register being .Gulfport Mississippi.' She
Is equipped with auxiliary gasoline power
o that calms or contrary winds will
haV but little effeot on her progress.
; TO DISCHARGE CAROO TODAY. .
It is cxpeced that the surveyor of the
port of Houston. 8. L. Main will give
the I N. Dant'Zifr her clearance .this
morning at o'clock so that she may
make ready to discharge her cargo. The
transfer of 'the consignment to barges
will begin as soon as tile clearance has
been Issued. It Is estimated that about
three hours will be consumed If) dlscharg-
' Ing the cargo and as soon as his work
can be completed 4he goods will if towed
-tq the foot of Main -street In HoKton
and loaded for delivery to the respective
firms to which they ar consigned. N '
The. Dantzler will make two regular
trips per' month to and from the port of
Tamplco Mexico and it is. expected that
the future . will demand even greater
transportation facilities between that
point and Houston -t Men of affairs here
are of the opinion that the arrival of thla
schooner means the arrival of. the time
when -big 'things are going to be done on
the' Houston ship channel. Trade rela-
tions with Mexico should be highly profit-
table they believe as the entire haul can
be made by water thus precluding the
possibility of prohibitive freight V. rate
hampering the movement of cargoes ef
goods Imported from points In Mexico or
.other points on the eoast ' 4 ; '" " :

Klaw 4 Erlanger and Their Allies
Have Resigned From the Pro-

(Houstin Post Special.) "
NEW YORK. Max 11 A bomb was ex-
ploded In theatrical circles when several
of the most prominent members of the
National Theatrical Producing Managers'
association resigned from that organisa-
tion. Following the resignations of Henry

han A. I Erlanger Jameg Forbes Jo-
seph M. Dalle. Samuel H. Harris Will-
lam Harris Mark Klaw Frank McKee
Frederic Thompson and A. W. Dingwall
It was rumored that the Shuberts who
left the association- year ago would be
reinstated and would assume the control
formerly vested In the directing members
of the so-called syndicate. . ..
The latest turn In the situation followed
Ihe formation ot a combination of man-
agers ot theaters throughout the country
controlling 1200 houses for the purpose
of booking the meritorious attractions ot
any producing manager who came to
them for time and the formation of a
new alliance of producing managers who
agreed to leave their bookings as here-
tofore. In the hands of Klaw A Erlanger.
COUT FORCED ACTION
The new alliance was formed to com-
bat the National Theater Owners' asso-
ciation when John Cort president of that
body proposed a conference to discuss
the question of bookings which waa re-
ceived favorably at a meeting of the Na-
tional Theatrical Producing Managers' as-
sociation. ' This action of the association
was followed by the resignations above
In announcing the resignations Klaw
& Erlanger gave out a letter sent to the
association by Henry B. Harris Its presi-
dent which broke up the organization so
far-as the syndicate'' allies are con-
cerned and leaves it In . the hands of the
Shuhert allied. Mr. Harris said:
"Early In the career of this association
It was resolved that none of the delibera-
tions and resolutions discussed and passed
by this board or association was to be
given nut to the press or public unless
so specifically ordered by the board and
then only through our secretary or presi-
dent. "This distinct understanding was delib-
. erately and grossly violated by a member
who gave out the happening of last

It was said. that the syndlfito support-

and to drop the old one as loon ns tha

ing to oust the Shubert "KJporters gut

' Mr Cort would not discuss) the proe-

ference suggested by him preferring to
stand for the present on his statement
issued as soon as he learned tt .the
