When A. II. Woods conceived tho idea
that tho "PotaBh and Perlmutter" stories
of Montague Glass possessed an appeal
which might be turned to advantage In
stago form, ho set about finding a suit
able man to dramatize the stories. Sev
eral authors tried their skill, but their
manuscripts were all rejected. Then Mr.
Woods put tho proposition up to one
of the foremost dramatists of the day.
He consented to make a stage version on
condition that his name would not appear
on the program, as he was not at all sure
that the stories would be successful In
play form. Tho success of "Potash and
Perlmutter" passed all expectations and
when It was to bo produced in London
the author cabled to Mr. Woods a re
quest to make his namo known as the
dramatist. Mr. Woods replied that It was.
too lato, so "Potash and Perlmutter"
Is now being presented In several coun
tries without Charles Klein's namo un
der tho title. Tho play wll corns to tho
Garrick Thanksgiving week.
An unusual tribute to the merit of
"Potash and Perlmutter" In play and
book form was given wide publicity In
London recently when King ueorge, who
was present at the opening performance

that all of Montague Glass' stories be

It's a staid, puritanical business man

LONDON, Nov. 7.-It is officially an

CANNOT HURT THEM,
BUSINESS MEN SAY
New York Commercial
Leaders Expect Early Res
toration of Normal Condi
tions and No Adverse Leg
islation. NEW YORK. Nov. -Representatives
of business and financial Interests In thla
city expressed themselves today as being
satisfied with tho business outlook of
the United States following last Tues
Tin t optimism was based on tho belief
that with tho Democratic majority great
ly reduced In Congress there would be
less ladtcal legislation and agitation
against big business.
Tho reverses suffered by tho Demo
crats In ninny parts of tho country wero
interpreted as meaning that tho pcoplo
wero tired of business depression nnd
wanted a change, It was polntod out.
It was said thero was now a stiungcr
feeling of confidence In an early restora
tion of normal conditions In tho business
world and that thero would bo a gradual
improvement all along tho line.
Tho assertion credited to President Wil
son to tho effect that ho Intended giving
the countiy u respite from the legislative
attacks hurled nt railroads nnd large In
dustrial corporations was received with
profound satisfaction In local financial
nnd commercial circles.
With such a respite, oacked up by tho
President' Influence and sound advice, It
was believed that the promised Industrial
boom was only n matter of a fow weeks
away. Tho fact that the factories of this
country hao orders for millions of dol
lars of war supplies for tho European
nntlons was referred to as another Indi
cation of the beginning of prosperity for
tho whole nation.
"A LKSSON FOR WASHINGTON."
"Tho present so-called depression Is
largely duo to tho fact that Washington
continually harassed business until It did
not know which way to turn," said J.
B. Dickson, of Dickson & Eddy, coal
"Each day, almost, slnco the beginning
of tho Wilson Administration, has brought
Bomothlng now that has tended to un
settle things more than ever. The busi
ness world has not had an opportunity to
adjust Itself to ono thing before some
thing olso has been sprung upon It.
"Tho result of tho election on Tuesday
last was a good thing, nnd good Is bound
to result from It, for It will tench Wash
ington that It Is about tlmo to leavo bus!
ness alone for a while."
55. S. Frcomnn, vlco president of the
Liberty National Rank, snld:
. "There can bo no doubt that thero Is a
bettor feeling In tho business world.
Things nro working out better each dny
now. It Is largely a question of publlo
sentiment that seems to have turned In
favor of a much broader outlook. As
I regard It, tho future seems moro hope
ful than It hao for somo time. Tho hori
zon is clearer, nnd, In brief, everything
accms to ho hooked up for a good strong
"Tho result of last Tuesday's election
gnvo cvldenco that tho votorn want n
chango for tho better In business. Wife
tlio Inauguration of tho new Federal re
servo system, and with tho volumo of
business that Is coming In from foreign
countries, wo nre bound to huvo Improved
business conditions If people will bnlr
look on tho brighter side."
SECURITY IN SMALL MAJORITY.
"Tho result of the election will bo a
moro hopeful feeling among business
men," said Welding Ring, chairman of
tho Committee of Foreign Conunorco of
the Now York Chamber of Commerce.
"I do not say 'moro cheerful feeling';
but It will be moro hopeful. The result
will not bo because of Democratic re
verses, but will bo the effect of the de
creased majority In Congress, and would
obtain whether that decreased majority
was Democratic or Republican.
"With a small majority, President Wil
son will not bo nble to put his program
through as ho might with a large margin
of votes. I do not look for moro than
tho appropriation bills nnd one or two
othei Important measures to go through
at the coming short session.
"The result, of course, will bo to make
conditions more stable. Immediate radi
cal legislation need not bo feared. Tho
opposition to the Democratic majority will
put up a harder fight, with tho object of
postponing action until tho next session,
when Democratic control will bo less so-y
"Tho two things which this country
neeas are reuet or ine rauroaus, in me
matter of freight rates, and less radical
legislation and agitation against so-called
"big business." The latter can be ex
pected to result from tho effects of tho
election. A more definite prediction Is
Impossible now. It Is too soon after the
election to observe any effects already;
we can only say what we expect the effect

Mr. Stokowskl's program for this
week's pair of concerts Is most admir
ably arranged, qulto apart from the
cxcd and hackneyed question of musical
nationality which tho war has unhappily
brought to these shores. For thoso who
are Interested, It may bo said that the
symphony nnd concerto aro German, and
characteristically German, while tho
three other numbers nro almost aggres
sively Huwlan. The studious may flguro
out tho exact amount of tlmo devoted to
each, throw In tlio fact that tho soloist
Is a Russian nnd cnll tho balance even.
But, for music, tho arrangement of the
program has a special Interest. Tho ap
peal of the Schumann symphony which
begins tho program Is easy. Tho melo
dies nre fluent, and wero fluently played
yesterday. Tho tono of the string choir
was delightfully clean and sweet, tho
woodwind was almost luscious nt mo
ments, and the horns moro vibrantly
sonorous than they have been heretofore.
The humor of tho scherzo, nnd tho
slightly strained solemnity of the fourth
movement aro neither of the sort that
iiinkra great emotional demands upon tho
The appearance of tho soloist was np
parcntly the signal for an upward move
ment, to which tho orchestra, and neces
sarily tho audience, responded. Tlio dlvlno
adagio. In which Mr. Zlmbnllst and the
orchestra shared high honors, has an ur,
Inslstcnt but seductive power to lift Its
hearers to an nlmost ineffable plane of
being. It Is pure melody, and Its effect
Is that of pure line, perhaps of purity It-
sou, it is. of course. Indefinable. To let
nn audience go with that exaltation glow
ing In It would bo n proud achievement,
but It would be Inhuman. Tho rest of the
program took tho henror back to a gay
and exhilarating earth. The "Finhindla."
more serious than tho rest, was nobly
played; tlio beat of Finnish song was care
fully accented by Mr. Stokowskl, and the
tremendous chords of tlio national hymn
wero flung out with bravo gestures.
After them tho music of Mr. Zlmballst's
own danco compositions seemed a little
unreal, especially the first Tho bocond
was earthy enough It reminded ono, ns it
was probably Intended to do, of Polish
peasants playing the harmonica of a Sun
day nfternoon. Finally came tho highly
rolored. thudding "Slavic March" of
Ts-clinlkowsky. Twice bofoio this Mr
Stokowskl has finished a program with
Russian pieces, nnd each tlmo has sent a
warm thrill through his hearers. Tho
splendor and tho recklessness of tho
"Marcho Slave" wero renter than the
others. And Mr. Stokowskl, conducting
with n fine appreciation of the essentially
unrefined, and thereforo uncivilized, char
acter of tho major melodies of the march,
fulfilled Its meaning. Tlio raciest slang
could hardly do Justlco to It.
Tho orchestra. It has already been
said, played well. Except for the mo
ments nt tho beginning of tho symphony
when the strings snng In extraordinary
power and beauty of voice, there was no
moment of superhuman excellence, but.
fortunately, thero was no moment when
tho orchestrn. or any part of It, lagged.
In the concerto Its adjustment was par
ticular noteworthy; with the soloist the
orchestra played smoothly nnd well, and
without him it kept its own high place.
Mr. Zlmb.-Ulst's success yesterday was
unquestionable. He received the custom
ary recalls, but they wero accorded with
moro zest and personnl enthusiasm than
often falls to a soloist. Tho music he
played was admirably chosen It Is a
concerto which nImo3 nsstircs success to
a good player. Mr. Zlmballst, ns a player.
Is moro than good. He Is faultless. Tech
nically no criticism Is possible; only
praise. Tho Bruch concerto Is not a
."""-tint place for virtuosi, but what was
hard In It Mr. Zlmlmllst made easy. Tho
music that was written ho played as it
was written, doing no vlolcnco to the ex
quisite text ho had to read. For some
that will not nppenr sufficient. In other
r titles thero havo grown up factions which
nminss Mr. Zlmbnllst s personality, or his
lack iT one. Just as It was once tho cus
Kim to discuss tho sincerity of public
mbt. But why should ono Insist that
Mr. Zlmbnllst move ono precisely ns
Ysayo does, for oxamplo? Mr. ZImballst
as ho appears on tho stago Is more pre
possessing than ho was somo years ago,
but ho still lacks case, still lacks tho fig
ure to cemmand. Ho does not fire the
Imagination when he plays. That Is true.
Yet with all his gifts that one enn be
spared because It Is just as true that ho
moves the spirit. And It Is quite likely
that the advertised and known personali
ties of music would not havo been ablo
to do what he did yesterday transmit
a work so that It seemed that he and his
Instrument nnd oven tho orchestra behind
him wero part of tho composer's spirit
at work on a fresh masterpiece.
Tho excellent Impression made hero by
Frank Gittelson when he was soloist with
tho Philadelphia Orchestra will attrnct
his newly made admirers and many
others to tho Academy of Music on
Tuesday evening, whn Mr. Gittelson
will have an even better opportunity to
display his growing talents. On that
evening he will appear In a recital of
his own, playing a Nardinl concerto,
with his own cadenza; a Bach "Cha
conne." for violin alone; three charac
teristic national dances by Dvorak. Sara-
sate nnd Brahms, nnd finally a concerto
by rt'Ambroslo. Mr. Gittelson, apparent
ly, does not need tho help of "familiar"
pieces, nnd has chosen those ivhlcli, re
gardless of appeal, seem best to him.
The distillled nttltudo he takes toward
his work and the unquestionable tech
nical ability he possesses were shown
last week. Ilia greater powers, merely
suggested then, should come out In this
recital. Mr. Gittelson will, moreover, be
moro at ease when he comes, ns he Is
scheduled for appearances In Boston and
with the New York Symphony Orchestra
on the 6th nnd 8th of this month.
Hme. Alma, Gluck
Philadelphia is comparatively a quiet
plaoe for concerts, but the mid-winter
conflict of dutua will be foreshadowed here
on Wednesday night when Mme. Alma
Gluck and David Blspham will both give
recitals. Mr. Illspham's program Is not
yet at hand, but those familiar with hla
unusual and pleasing manner will not be
at a loss to know what the quality of
tho program will be. He will be heard
at Wltherspoon Hall. Mme. Gluck, at
the Academy, will sing a variety of
songs, which should give her linguistic as
well as her vocal abilities unlimited range.
Beginning with Rameau, Mozart, a
Dolmetsch arrangement of an old Kngllsh
song, Handel and Haydn, the program
takes In three songs by Schumann, three
by Brahms, a group of Russian songs.
Including the "Song of the Shepherd
Lehl," which proved so popular when
Mme. Gluok sang It at the orchestra
concert some weeks ago', and finally a
group of songs by Americans. Suoh a
variety makes comment on the prospects
unnecessary. Mme. Cluck's rich voiee and
tier fine rythmic sense, the legato which,
a New York critic says, she shouldn't
by all tradition have acquired until 30
years from now, and all her other excel
lences are known to Phlladelpblans. This
Is an occasion when one may expect the
best and not be disappointed,
The second of the Boston Symphony
Orohastra concert will be given at tbe
Academy on tbe evealag of November
39. Harold Bauer will be tbe soloist. Tbe
program Is still to be announced.

Tho program Is not yet completed, but
It will be announced shortly.
The Philadelphia Orchestra
Four orchestral numbers and threo arias
by Jvoulso Homer mako up the rich pro
gram of the Philadelphia Orchestra for
tho fifth pair of concerts next Friday
afternoon nnd Saturday evening. The
petty international dissensions outside
tho orchestra, of which Mr. Stokowskl
has apparently heard a disagreeable echo,
have fortunately, not affected lilm In the
slightest. It Is to be hoped that no mis
guided neutrality fanatic will venturo
to protest ngalnst tho excellently bal
anced programs which Mr. Stokowskl
arranges. The members of the orchestra
havo shown themselves moro devoted to
music and to Philadelphia than to tho
self-oxploltatlon which they might
achieve by protest. Tho public should
be at least their equal. At any rate.
If tlio balnnco swung toward Russia this
wcok It swings far enough toward Ger
many foi the next pair of concerts,
llnciidel's "Armlnlus" will havo Its first
performance in Philadelphia at tho be
ginning of the program. Inasmuch as
It was first performed in 17C6, it will
havo tho nlr of an nntiquo for local
music patrons. Following It, appropri
ately, Mme. Homer will sing two arias
by Johann Scbnstlan Bach, tho "It Is
Finished," from "St. John's Passion," and
".My Heart Kvcr Faithful." Tho first
half of this particularly opulent program
will closo with tho Eighth Symphony of
As usual In theso mattcis, there has
been groat controversy concerning tho
meaning, purpose, symbolism, what you
will, of the eighth symphony. Tho ex
cellent program notes have displayed a
tendency to treat these controversies
with a cheerful Indifference, as will, no
doubt, most of the heurers. Discussions
of this sort mako excellent topics for
conversation on the homeward Journey If
nothing moro inspiring comes to mind.
Eut when listening to tho music they nro
Salut-Saens' "Le Rouet d' Omphale," a
tragic trcntment of a topic once largely
favored by romantic poets, will begin tho
second half of the program. Omphale, It
wll ho remembered, was tho Lydlan queen
whom Hercules served for three yenrs,
wearing her robes, while she wore his
lion skin and carried his club. The psy
chological treatment In tho music is tor
turous nnd wonderful to the Impression
ablo mind. Mme. Homer's third nrla will
bo tho "Mlnlstrll dl Banl," from Meyer
beer's "II Profeto," and Johann Svena
scn's "Carnival in Paris," an orchestral
treatment of tho Mardi gras, will end the
FRIPKE N- K- C0R- nnoAD and
