ing. The engagement will be limited

route from New York, having
on its way to San Francisco only at
Denver. Salt Lake and Los Angeles.
The story of the comedy tells of a
Connecticut youth ■whose attempts to
"burn up" Broadway land him in
trouble after he lias squandered an
Inherited fortune. The complications
arise from the youth's desperate en
deavors to extricate himself from debt
by marrying a wealthy woman old
enough to be his motheir. Clever lines
and amusing situations abound, and
an excellent" cast, including Ralph
Morgan. John Webster, Edith Luckett,

"Cxcuse Me." which will be given at
the Cort theater next Sunday evening.
Jimmy Wellingford asks him if he
"ever put his faith in false hearted
"No,*" shrieks the irate Ira.
"Rver been married?" asks Jimmy.
"Never," thunders Ira. "I was born
single and I like it."
Just then Ann Gattle. a demure lit -
tl<* missionary, enters the car. She is
nn longer young, but she is still charm
ing, and her first convert is Tra. They
are married on the train before the
journey is half over. Thus is the speed
of Rupert Huprhes' farce exhibited.
Miss Rita Otway, who played the
role of Mrs. Whitcomb last year and
< orjuetted with the giddy drummer on
the train, la this year the worldly Mrs.
Wellingford, 'who is on her way to
Jieno. Sidney Greenfield will again be

would require an apology without him.

So great has been the demand for
seats for "The Blue Bird" at the Cort
that the decidedly unusual announce
ment is made by the management that
an extra matinee will be given Satur
day morning in order in some measure
to meet the requests of the many who
liave been disappointed at not being
able to make reservations. The doors
will be opened °at 9:30 o'clock and the
performance will begin at 10 o'clock
sharp. The regular matinee will be
given In the afternoon and Saturday
night's performance will close the en
gagement. This morning performance
will prove a message of cheer to the
parents of school children who have
been unable to secure seats for the
regular matinee Saturday afternoon.
The sale for" Maeterlinck's fantasy
is unprecedented even in the annals of
the Cort theater, which has housed
many record breakers. It was thought
that by giving extra matinees on Tues
day and Thursday of this week
the congestion would be overcome, but
that has not proved the case. Literal
ly, hundreds of people have been
turned away all week, and Manager
Homer F. Curran of the Cort has been
obliged to return to disappointed
theater patrons over $3,000 in checks
and money orders received by mail in
tiic last few days.
The fact that "The Blue Bird" plays
Kan Francisco alone of all the cities in
7iorthern and centra! California has
been the means of bringing to the city
h larger number of out of town thea
tergoers than any attraction in the
history of the theaters.
Th«» big event at the Savoy theater
is scheduled for next Sunday night,

Some Caustic Shafts From
the Bench Drawn by
Thomas H. Reed
Jurists Style Him Theorist
and Accuse Him of
In meeting the charges of Thomas H.
Reed, associate professor of government
at the University of California, who
states that "the courts of the country
are not genuinely respected because
they are not respectable," many judges
have declared that the utterances
of the professor should be disregarded
as the musings of a mere theorist, and
that the censor had assumed a cloak of
didactic dignity outworn by the critics
of years ago. %
Some of the judges declare that Reed's
statements are too general for specific
analysis and that the bar association
and members of the bench already have
instituted legislation that will bring
about the very improvements he has In
mind. That the corrupt Judge la an ex
ception rarely found runs through
nearly every Interview obtained yester
day in response to the professor's chal
"You will find in almost every In
stance," said Justice Luclen Shaw of
the supreme banch, "that he who criti
cises the law4ind the courts resembles
necessity, in that he knows no law.
"Professor Reed does not know what
he is talking about. I will venture to
say that he can not point to one judge
among all he knows and I suppose that
he is acquainted with many, else he
would not attempt to criticise them so
—who is not respected and respectable.
A CAUSTIC COMPARISON
" "The average theorist who criticizes
the judiciary is like the dry goods
clerk who comments scathingly upon
the manner 1 in which a blacksmith
welds together two pieces of Iron."
Judge Shaw agreed with Professor
Reed that "a judiciary, of highly paid
legal experts, appointed for good be
havior," would assist in making the
courts more efficient; that the gover
nor should have the amplest appoint
ive powers, subject to* civil service,
and many other points that he had
Judge Thomas F. Graham, recently
presiding judge of the superior court of
San Francisco county, said:
'"There is no way of separating , the
generalizations of Professor Reed from
specific instances In the California
courts. He speaks of the courts of the
country, whereas I can speak only of
the courts of California within my
"My Idea about the Judiciary of Cali
fornia, as far as the Judges are con
cerned, is that If the terms of the
judges were increased to 15 years, espe
cially now that the recall has been
adopted, better work would be done.
Under the present system four judges
of the superior court in this county are
recalled every two years. They are
forced to get out and make a campaign
for re-election. In the year that the
four judges have to run for office it is
impossible for them to do as good work
and as much work as during the other
five years of their terms.
SLOWNESS FITS CASE
"Regarding slowness and uncertainty
of justice, that depends on the case be
fore the court. Sometimes the law in
terferes with celerity, at other times
the developments of the case itself de
lay procedure. The legislature has taken
care of delays through appeals on tech
nicalities and will take further action
on this subject. i
"Regarding the work in the courts:!
There is more work to be done in some j
counties than in others. The judiciary
in San Franc'sco county has not
changed since 1879. when San Fran
cisco had a much smaller population
than now. The population has doubled
and the litigation in the county has in
"That labor looks on courts generally
with distrust I do not believe."
Judge J. O. Moncur of Plumas county,
sitting in extra sessions 4, said: I
"The questions raised by Professor I
Reed are serious ones and can not be j
decided offhand. Regarding disrespect i
of the courts, I never have had any
complaint on that score. A great deal'
of the professor's statement Iβ con- '
cerned? with generalities, but as a gen
eral proposition the judiciary and bar
are working toward the ends he pre
sents.* The history of the reform of the
Judiciary dates from the initiation of
courts. Delays have occurred, and will
occur, but the cases are handled more |
expeditiously now than in the past, and
the defects of law and the judicial sys- j
tern have, to a great extent, disap
peared. Those which remain are being
studied by competent minds and will be
Judge B. V. Sargent of Monterey
county expressed views similar ,to
Judge Moneur. ;
Judge Mogan criticised Professor j
Reed's lack of specific data. Picking
out Reed's reference to the "narrow
technicality that leaves the poor de
fenseless," he said:
"Conditions differ In different courts.
Why should technicality leave only the
poor man defenseless? Why should It
not affect the rich? Professor Reed
does not say why the poor men should
suffer more than the rich through any
alleged error of the Judicial system. It
is like saying to all the judges in the
United States that their courts are not
respected and administered properly."
