ater this week under the direction ot
Joseph Brooks. ' t r -
By Arnold Bennett, the 'authorfof
many delightful novels, and Edward
Knoblauch, the dramatist and author of
"Kismet," 'IMIlestones" comes from
London and New York heralded as the
most charming comedy since "Caste."
John Rhead, a clever young engineer,
sees In 1S00 the possibilities of Iron over
wood In shipbuilding. His conservative
partners do riot agree with his views
and he breaks away from them at tho
risk of losing the girl he loves, and at
the cost to Ms sister Gertrude, or
the man alio loves, her future husband.
Rhead succeeds and he Is rewarded with
the title of baronet. In 1SS5 he Is In
capable of seeing that steel will replace
Iron, a fact brought to his attention by
a young engineer In his employ, who
happens to stand in the same scientific
relation to him that he did to bis part
ners twenty-five years before.
Rhead not only continues to be blind
to the possibilities of steel versus Iron,
but he stubbornly refuses to allow his
daughter to marry the young engineer,
Arthur Precce, and compels her to
marry an inane scion of nobility. Lord
Monkhurst. Later Rhead is forced to
acquiesce in this same Arthur Prcece's
Intervention in a strike In his works,
and to admit defeat at the hands of his
granddaughter, the Honorable Muriel
Pym, a self-willed typo of the modern
young woman who Is dctermlnHi to
marry the man of her choice. Througn
It all runs the tragedy of the old maid
Sir John Rhead's sister. Muriel Pm's
mother, now a widow, cannot recon
cile herself to a parting with the
daughter who has avowed her Inten
tion to marry Richard Sibley, the young
engineer, family objections notwith
standing, and her objections prevail
with the girl until she meets again the
lover of her young days Arthur Preece.
Just at the moment Sir John and Lady
Rhead arc celebrating their golden
wedding anniversary. Lady Rhead. who
has loved, honoreo. and obeyed her
husband for fifty years, suddenly as
serts herself, and demands that he shall
do nothing to Interfere with the mar
riage of Muriel and Richard Sibley,
who. by the bye, Is her brother s child.

Allegorical Spectacle Pre

"Everywomah,"" the widely discussed
allegorical spectacle, which Was writ
ten by, tho late' "Walter Browne, who
spent ten years in the creation of this,
his master-Work, only to die upon the
morning of the day when it was given
Its first public performance, will begin
a week's engagement at the Belasco to
morrpw evening. t
"EverywomaJVs'' fame has been world
wlde since It was seen here two years
ago. It made theatrical History in New
York and Is now a sensation at the
Dxury Lane 1 neater in London. Ino
play Is given in five canticles or acts,
and one of these takes place on Broadway.-New
York, at midnight on New
Year Eve. The company of nearly 170
persons, Is In this scene, which has
become world famous.
The incidents of the story of "Every
woman" might be called an admixture
of the symbolic and actual. It may be
considered an allegory, as modern
drama, as grand opera. Its story Is
dramatic in the extreme. The theme
Is "Everywoman's" quest for love, und
the principal character is supposed to
be typical of the sex: she is a composite
woman, "endowed with youth, beauty,
grace, and the other attributes of at
tractive young womanhood. Her search
for love brings her into contact with the
pleasures and pains, allurements, and
handicaps of life.
Thus of almost equal Importance with
"iiverywoman" are '"King Love. .Wealth;
Youth. Beauty, Modesty, Greed, Vanity,
Truth. Witless. Patslon, Conscience;
and others. Also there Is Nobody, who
typifies worldly wisdom, public opinion
and philosophy. Through the play He
treads as guide, friend and counselor;
hpeaking the hard truth into nnwilllng
ears, having his advlco rejected, but
always returning, as persistently ana
lnvcterately as doom. ,
Impressive Interpretation of "Every
wuman" requires a cast of unuauat
caliber, which Henry W. Savage has pro
vided. In addition . to MiM Thais
M'agrane, who sustains the title role,
the leaders of the company are Fred
erick DeHellcvlIIe, H. Cooper-Cllffe,

Clarke, of Arkansas.- .
It Is to enact a law -under-whlch the

holders; whose terms origlnM'y- were

pass this at once with the understand
ing that the .Democrats will then allow
all the Taft appointments to go through
and be confirmed. Inasmuch as there
would, be a general retirement of Re
publican officeholders July 1 under this
scheme the Democrats could afford to
permit confirmations.
The plan, has stirred considerable dis
cussion, but- there Is little likelihood of
Its enactment Into law. Senate Republi
cans will not support It, .and there Is
no reason to believe President Taft
would sign such a bill.
The fact such a plan has been origi

Democratic desire for office. .Most of

Friends of Mr. McAdoo In New York
are booming him for the Cabinet post
of Secretary of War. In view of bis
strong support of Wilson in the cam

though the cropping out of a feud
between McAdoo and National Chair
