Tim Murphy Secnres a Sol
Smith Russell Play.
Will Be Seen Next Season in A
Bachelor's Romance."
SHOULD BE A SUCCESS.
More Will Probably Advance
His Stock as a Star.
Murphy's Style Resembles That
of Veteran Comedian.
Tim Murphy in a Sol Smith Russell
play. Such is one of tho latest an
nouncements in the theatrical world.
The piece is Martha Morton's comedy,
"A. Bachelor's Romance," which was a
fitting successor to "Peaceful Valley"
and "A Poor Relation" in the Kusseil
repertory.
Mr. Murphy should do well In the
Morton comedy. His stock as one of the
stellar lights of the stage should ad
vance several points during the coming
season. For one reason his style of hu
mor more nearly resembles that of Sol
Smith Russell than any other of his
professional Feniors. For another he
iias exceptional ability, and it is only
reasonable to suppose that a play which
proved a satisfactory vehicle for Rus
sell will prove satisfactory for him.
While Mr. Murphy's humor resembles
that of Sol Smith Russell, the young co
median is as distinctly original as the
older one. It was his originality in the
character of 'Maverick ISrancJer" that
made Hoyt's "A Texas Steer' 'one of the
most successful of the prolific play
Wright's farces. This was sadly appar
ent alter Mr. Murphy severed his con
nection .with Mr. Hurt, and others es
Bayed the part of the Texas legislator. It
was what saved "The Carpetbagger"
from oblivion, for the piece is only
strong in spots and without Tim Mur
phy and Tim Murphy's peculiar style
would likely prove but a failure. His
(overnor Crance" gained him an ova
tion in erratic New York after having
won him increased admiration in the
west, in which Alan Dale and the rest
of the remainder of the metropolitan
critics participated prominently.
Tim Murphy is the son of a Vermont
inker. His rirst work of any import
nnce on the stase was a snwialrv at
Tony Pastor's in New York city. From
ine music nail tie passed to a place in
Jioyt s "A Bunch of Keys," and after
that to "A Brass Monkey." His work
attracted the attention of the farce wri

i.i.-i wa ins last woik as a member
of the Hoyt forces. He and the play
wright disagreed, and the comedian left
a lexas hteer" to make a tour with an
ancient comedy under the title of "Old
innocence. In connection he gave 1m
personations ot Henry Irving, Stuart
icooson, and others.
The next year Murphy secured "The
Carpetbagger," by Opie Read and Frank
Pixley, a Chicago newspaper man. and
last year was his second with the piece
it is announced that he will retain it in
connection with "A Bachelors Ro
mance." Mr. Murphy will visit Topeka with the
Russell play next season. His support

LIMIT OF STAGE REALISM.
A Munchausen Story of Melodramatic
Life in California.
From the Dramatic Mirror.!
The rain came down. The lightning
made many hits and the thunder ap
plauded mightily. It was necessary for
Bix umbrellaiess mummers to order an
other round of wet goods in order to
retain their seats in the cafe, out of
the damp.
"On the Pacific coast there Is neither
thunder nor lightning." said the western
actor-manager sententiously.
"What's the difference?" growled the
other live.
"Big difference," replied the modern
Munchausen, "if you are trying to play
out there a melodrama that depends
upon thunder and lightning effects for
its sensational interest. I tried it once.
I had a play called A Daughter's Doom,
in which the thunder and lightning
machines played the chief parts. We
opened at San Rafael, Cal. The audi
ence was large, but not enthusiastic.
The faces in front looKed puzzled I
was puzzled, too. I asked the local man
ager what he thought was the matter.
'It's the fool play,' he said. 'Kvervbody
in front is trying to guess what in hades
you're letting off sky rockets and fire
crackers for, when there ain't a line in
the play about its being either the
Fourth of July or Chinese New Year's.
The play's all right, I reckon, but what
are the fireworks for?' 'Fireworks!' I
said, "there ain't a firework in the piece.
It's thunder and lightning!' The locai
manager shook his head. 'I've heard of
them things.' he said, 'but they ain't
practical on the stage. What you want
on the stage is natural phenomenons
that people know about and understand.
They ain't a man in front that knows
what you're driving at, and they won't
etand for it. Now if you want to make
this Dai.ghter's Doom a natural, real
istic m. lodrarr.a that folks will under
l?" , !""U stald rr. you'll cut that fool
thunder business and run in an earth
quake in place of it. An earthquake
vvould hold 'em because earthquakes
is natural.'
"I saw at once that the local manager
was right, and that night after the
Fhow the property man and I got to
gether and discussed the matter The
property man said he could fake an
earthquake all right if I could change
the play to fit. We .get at it I ar
ranged to have the villain swallowed
tip instead of struck by lightning, and
the property man fixed the wins and
the rock sets fasts to the stage cloth
po that when it was jerked from either
side the whole setting would swav and
tremble. We decided that the thunder
machine would do as it stood, for the
rumble.
"At the next stand we advertised the
earthquake heavily, and the result was
that our receipts broke all previous rec
ords. A local paper said that 'A
Daughter's Doom' was the most rea
istip play ever seen on the coast. We
jjiayeu two weeks of one-night stands
after that to enormous business.
Turned 'em away at every performance.
I raised the salaries all around, be
cause every member of the company
iiad to help yank the stage cloth We
got a scrarr-book full of the Hnest press
notices you ever saw.
",VH la.s,we Bot to a Pretty little town
called Alhambra, in southern Califor
nia The theater there was a frame
building, big enough to hold the en
tire jwpulation f the village. I soon
discovered that the entire popula
tion had heard of 'A Daughter's
Doom,' and would be on hand for the
performance. The night was hot, and
riot a breath of air stirred.
"It was weather that would have ruined
business for any attraction besides "A
Daughter's Doom." The house was abso
lutely Jammed. Just before the curtain
rose I got my people together and told
them to give an extra brilliant earth
quake, because there was nearly $7( in
the house. They promised they would.
And they did.
"In the third act. when the earthquake
cue was given, they yanked the stage
cloth back and forth until the wings and
the set rocks and the practicable house
rocked like fishing boats on a storm tossed
sea. 'Keep it up!' I yelled above xhe roar
of the thunder machine. The audience
cheered again and ag:iin. Suddenly I no
ticed that the wall of the building rocked
almost as much as the stake setting did.
'Stop!' I yelled to the yankers. They
stopped. But the walls kept on rocking,
'it's a real earthquake. 1 shouted. 'Run
for it!' The company ran for it out the
stage door to comparative safety. As I es
caped I glanced back at the audience. I
saw that every eye was fixed upon the
stage in wonder and admiration. The ap
plause continued. Of a sudden, as I
dashed through the door, the real earth
quake made a special effort, and the build
ing collapsed with a crash. The audience
went down cheeiing.
"Huddled together outside, my company
and I waited to be swallowed up. But the
real earthquake was not as complete as
our earthquake had been, and it did not
swallow. It stopped as abruptly as it had
begun, w e stood, stupenea witn norror,

gazing at the wreck of the Alhambra
Opera house. Suddenly, from the mass of
debris, the figure of a man appeared. His
clothes were torn to ribbons and his face
was distorted with mineled fright and
wrath. He bounded toward us, and I rec
ognized him a-s the owner ot tne upera
house. 'You shall pay for this with your
lite! he shrieked, still coming torwanl.
'For what?' I asked, amazed. 'For caus
ing this cata.stroohe.' he answered an
grily. 'You and your Daughter's Doom
and your damned realistic earthquake
have killed the population of Alhambra
and destroyed the hnest opera house on
the facinc coast, outsiue or &an x ran

"From the ruins other figures emerged
and started toward us, shouting "Lynch
him! Lvneh him!' For one moment I
tried to raise my voice in explanation, but
it was useless. Turning to my fellow play
ers I aain commanded them to run for
it. This time we did not stop until we
were snfelv in Los Antreles. nine miles
from the town in which "A Daughter's
Doom" closed suddenly ami forever.

ONLY THE POETIC DRAMA.
Julia Marlowe Has No Use for the
, Hectic Play.
Julia Marlowe has been a victim of
misrepresentation in the following para
graph which has been extensively cop
ied, originating nobody seems to know
where:
"Julia Marlowe is quoted as having
said recently to one of her friends: '"I
am going to make a change. I am under
contract to present "When Knighthood
Was in Flower." and I shall give this
play next season. After that I am going
to play your "Saphos"and your "Zazas."
Why? Simply because I am tired of the
eroodv-Koody dramas, and I want to
make a change. I want a different pub
lic. My public has been very generous.
and I hope that I have not been ungrate
ful, but I long to attract those who are
not governed merely by beautiful senti
ment, but who know life and do not hes
itate to see it represented truthfully
rather than ideally on the stage. That
is the way I feel now, and unless I
change my mind I shall be governed by
this feeling in making my future
plans.' "
Addressing the editor of the Dramatic
Mirror, Miss Marlowe has this to say:
"I am utterly at a loss to imagine the
source from which this has emanated, as
I would be the last person to give ex
pression to such ideas as are here at
tributed to me.
T have no intention or desire to
change the general policy of my produc
tions; the pursuance of which has won
me the support, and I hope the respect.
of the theater-goers of America.
'My intention is rather to present the
higher forms of the classic and poetic
drama as far as the public will support
me in such presentations, than to enter
a field in which I have never sought
recognition.
'Furthermore. I am not tempted to
such a change of policy by financial con
siderations, as I believe that I can safely
say that my earnings have been greater
on the whole than they would have been
had I pursued a different policy. I be
lieve also, that I may find ample oppor
tunity for the presentation of those
things that are truest in life, as well as
all that is most beautiful in art, in the
plays with which my name has been as
sociated, and I wish to assure those who
are interested in my work that my fu
ture productions will be made with the
best hope and highest purpose of the
stage in view.!'
ENGLISH LIGHT OPERAS.
Three Will be Imported for Produc
tion in the FalL
Three light operas now running in
London will all be seen in New York
eventually.says a New York paper. They
are "The Rose of Persia" at the Savoy,
which Charles Frohman has purchased;
"The Messenger Boy.' at the Gaiety,
controlled for America by George W.
Lederer, and "Floradora," as bright as
the proverbial dollar, at the Lyric
theatre.
Strangely enough the latter opera
I i. - xt'jr
went begging until last week, when it
was obtained for New York production
by Dunne & Ryley. It is a bright mu
sical piece, with words by Owen Hall
and music by Leslie Stuart, and its
story Is the attempt of the scheming old
owner of a brand of perfume and island
of the same name to get possession of
the property of a widow. It is quick in
movement, picturesque and fetching in
scenery and costuming, and contains
two Bongs, "Tact" and "The Military
Man," which seemed destined to be
whistled from the Battery to Harlem.
The obstacle which stands in the way
of Dunne & Ryley's American success in
"Floradora" is the matter of the com
pany. It is doubtful if they can supply
the places of the principals in the pres
ent production. -
"The Rose of Persia" is the work of
Sir Arthur Sullivan and Basil Hood. It
is in a subdued vein, which may find
favor at Daly's, where it is to be pro
duced in September. It has the advant
age, however, of gaining life and spirit
as it advances, and it ends with the hu-
morous expedient of telling a story in
verse to win a king's favor for an im
postor. The music for the most part
has a high value.
FROHMAN'3 NEW PLAYS.
Syndicate Head Returns From Europe
and Outlines Stock in Trade.
Charles Frohman arrived in New
York from London this week on the

suggests is embodied in the role.
