GIRL WHO COST KING
MANUEL'S ROYAL LID
Gaby Deslys, Actress, Credited
With Portuguese Monarch's
Overthrow, Now Here.
"Now York.?Gaby Deslys, who is
,?redlted by common report with hav
ilng overthrown the kingdom of Portu
gal by infatuating King Manuel and
lenticlng from him what was left in
jibe royal treasury, is now here to fill
professional engagements. She says
|ehe is to receive $18,000 a week and it
Iis probable that some of the $18,000
?will be real money. She brought a be
jwllderlng array of clothes and jewels
land also her reputation as a monarchy
The wonder is that this talented ac
tress has not come over sooner. Why
this strange delay? A lady with a
redolent past and the destroyer of
monarchy, she certainly had a right to
? expect sympathy and appreciation in
irepublican America from the first.
; The only reason Imaginable for her
(delay in coming to the country to
[which foreign artists hasten to make
their money as a rule is that she is so
modest she did not realize the extent
,of her exploit. No doubt she said to
\hcrsclf that Manuel was such a littl
Jting that his destroying siren would
fhardly receive credit for having done
anything worth while.
And, to tell the truth, Manuel was a
?very little king oven at his best. To
one who knew bint its intimately as
Mile. IX^slys ho probably seemed
even smaller than he appeared to the
average newspaper reader. Compared
even with a medium king like the late
Xeopold of Belgium, he paled into iu
Gut the people over here are not so
carping and critical as to hold that
against her. She took the only king
that was probably In sight at the time,
and if he didn't happen to be one
?whose conduct amounted to very much
?Internationally, that was the lady's
misfortune and not her fault. She did
tier best with the material at hand. Of
course, her reception would naturally
be n little warmer and her receipts a
little larger if she had managed to
bring down larger game from the Eu
ropean ropal preserves. Had she done
that, it might not have been necessary
for her to go to the trouble even of
dancing in order to make the show a
sniccras. But that Is another story.
