reared In the, form of u musical play R. J.
truing' fftrw uhlcli wai ecn nt tho Mine
theatre In a previous Incarnation. It wan
calls-i laH uluht -The Hod Petticoat." It
waa. first known under the shorter nnd
neller title "Next."
Mr. Younn's il.iy ha, a ltt theme the
arrival of a woman bartwr In a Western
"ommunlty which had oxrected r barber
of the usual kx. Tho extravasrnnco of this
theme seemed to cry for' muni?. It was
lmrolble to accept such b clever, if ex
travagant, idea in any uie that claimed
plausibility for Its success.
The new form of the farce minimize
its dramatic element, lays ntrone emphuais
on Its comlo scenes and accompanies the
progress of the atory with music. This
turned out to bo most tuneful Jingle by
the gifted Jerome D. Kern, who placed his
muselat the servlee or Paul West, who wrote
ome neat ami pointed lyrics to comple
ment the test.
So what KPemed during the first aot a
naive dramatic product to offer thin public
proved In tho end nu orlsin.il nnd enter
taining novelty. The second net of the
three was In itself sufficient to win the
favor of any public.
Just as the fun of the play in its dramatic
form depended chiefly on the strong per-t-onal
humor of Helen l-owell so does the
muaieal version of "Next" find her tliu
ornerstono of Its success. Mlas how HI
accomplished easily the transfer to the
newer mould in which the work is cant.
Her method is so artistic that it is bound
to prove effective under uny conditions.
That was a foregone conclusion. It was
not no certain, however, that she could
make her comedy Just as potent' In song and
dance. Hut It was soon discovered that ber
dry humor lost noth'ng In the distinct enun
ciation of Mr. Wests ditties or in the char
acteristlo steps with which she illustrated
It has not always been easy in the past
to find a vehicle for the display of Miss
1-owell's gift of humor. But there should
be an active demand for her services here
after in musical farce.
Few of the women customarily ex
pected to supply the fun for such enter
tainments possess her genuine vis coinica
or her artistic means for displaying It.
She enjoyed a little triumph last nistht which
was fully earned.
There were other element, however,
in the success of "The lied Petticoat" last
night. Grace Field sam; vivaciously Mr.
Kern's melodies and danced with uncommon
grace and animation. Then her irresistible
personaV charm pervaded every scene in
which she appeared.
Joseph Phillips sang with unusual taste
and finish a waltz none and other numbers
suited to his agreeable barytone. Donald
Macdonald. who looked less Scotch than his
name sounds, is a virtuoso in the prevailing
fashions of stage dancing. William Prtiette,
James Carson and Henry Norman were
others that contributed to the success of
The chorus was small. The quality of
the women's voices suggested the agonized
cry of "cash" in a department store at S.ii.
The appearance of the men. reminded the
audience that the ages of Napoleon's sol
diers decreased until many of them were
finally little more than boys.
Hut luckily "The Red Petticoat" does
not depend on its chorua for its best quali
ties. Mlis Lowell Is there, so are Grace
Field and her clever associates.

Bowdle.is ono of the best nnd moat

Claimants ho had planned to bring
suit in the State courts against llo Oceania
Steam Navigation Company, Iamitod, to
recover damages based on injury, loss
of life and loss of property incurred by
the Titanio disaster, had thoir hopes
dashed by a swooping decision of Judge
Hough's in the Admiralty ranch or the
Foderal Dlxtrict court yesterday.
The Oceanio .Steam Navigation Com
pany recently instituted an action In the
United States courts to limit their mone
tary responsibility in the sinking of their
ship to approximately $03,000. In com
pliance with tho request or the steamship
company the court Issued a monition
or injunction restraining claimants from
filing suit in any other court during the
pendency of this limitation of liability
proceeduigs. The monition also in
structed all claimants to file theirdemands
with United btates Commissioner (111

FOR upwards of a quarter of a century Steinway
& Sons have been pursuing the policy of sharing
their profits with the buying public. The
gradual increase of their output and resources, coupled
with the concentration of their plants and the em
ployment of the most modem methods of 'manufac
turing, have enabled Steinway & Sons to produce and
sell their pianos at a lower rate than ever. A new
small grand piano (5 ft. 6 in.) in a mahogany case
at the extremely low figure of $750 is the splendid
result. Thus the great problem of giving the best arti
cle at the most reasonable cost has been successfully
solved. Steinway & Sons invite the careful inspection
and critical examination by the public of this their
latest great achievement in the art of pianoforte building.

uitmg litigation roiiowing tho sinking
of the steamship Republic nnd other
notable sea disasters Judge Hough held,
that in mutters of admiralty the United
Stntes courts have supremo authority.
He argued that sincn there is but one
court in which ship owners can obtatB
relief it would bo manifestly infalr to
allow claimantsto bring their uuits in
any other court while tho ship owners'
litigation to limit thoir liability waa still
Referring to tlio cases cited by hbn M
precedent, Judge Hough said: ' t
' "It does not anncur from any of Umm
cases whether ono who files a claim and
successtuuy ueicats tno limitation my
thereafter abandon his proceedings aji
a claimant und resort to other forum
for tho enforcement of his righto. But
this much docs clearly appear, that
ship owner may limit even one man's
recovery by the ufTimiative suit In Ad
miralty una that when that jurisdiction
is invokod tho District Court may pro
ceed to enforce against the petitioner
what it considers to be full liability after
denying limitation." ,
Judgo Hough then held A. Leonard
Brougham, an attorney, in contempt;.
Brougham, it is alleged, iu violation of
the court's monition, had filed a 75,00n
damage suit in Uie Stale courts on behalf
of his client, Mrs. Elizabeth H. Natach.
