At every point along the line they are fighting the main Russian army. “The Austrian offensive In the vi cinity of the Carpathians has com pelled the Russians to draw heavily on their reinforcements. In middle Galicia the battle Is still raging with the Austrian troops making success ful progress. They also hava bean successful along the lower San and southeast of Prsemysl.

He docent know what he Is talking about when It come* to practical affairs. I would sign the name kind off appropriation bills again.” Addressing the employee of the Ford Motor Car company. Monday aftarnoon, the governor declared that If re-elected he would recommend that the legislature appoint a media tion board whoee duty it shall be to bring capital and labor together In case of threatened strikes. “I am no new friend of labor.** said the governor. “For SO years I have been pleading in my school for better relatione between capital and labor. I haven’t just discovered my love for the working men along with my and» sire tor office. I’ve always had it be cause rm a working man soyself. “If any of my boye are In this crowd, they will tell you that I have always taught this principle in my school. I’ve tried to drive it home on those whom I have taught, that only through capital and labor work l&ff together oan the greatest good come to both. “Capitol Is going to continue to on ganlse and labor la going to continue to organise and both should have that right, but neither should organise as an enemy of the other. Both should organise with the Idea of working to gether tor the common good. That day is not tor distant when the strike, as a means of obtaining for labor those things which It desires, will be a thing of the pest. “And that is where the mediation commission would come In. Such a commission could find out the truth; find s common basis on which the par ties lnterected could get together and it either one aide or the other attempt ed to be unfair, the facts could be made public and the great force of public opinion would hack up the aide that le right. That is simply an appli cation of the square deal, and I know you are all with me when I say that no man or set of men should have more.” On the way to the Ford plant the governor was stopped at Medbury and Woodward-avet., where the children of Holy Rosary school were gathered to greet him, and at Harper and Wood ward-ares.. where the pupils of Bless ed Sacrament school were watting.

Pretty, ItlUng music of the sort that Ungera in the mind next morning, and galaty without strenuoalty, are the outstanding features of “The Little Case,” presented In the Detroit opera houae, Monday evening. The piece is founded on the French farce. “Le Petit Case,” by Trletan Bernard, with book and lyrica by C. M. 8. McClellan, and music by Ivan Caryll. The Little Clafe ‘ might be said to be a "starless’’ musical comedy. Good partq are many, but there is no focus ing of attention on a single character. Neither la there any one musical num ber which stands out as above the oth ers in merit. But the total effect la pleasing, without being noisy, and the piece Is staged in a manner which creates an atmosphere of gay aban don without botsterousnesa. Much of the music is reminiscent of "The Chocolate 8oldler,” which la tribute in itself.. The plot concerns the fortunes of Albert, waiter at “The Little Case,” who suddenly finds himself a million aire. To avoid paying a forfeit of 300,000 franca to his employer, he re mains at hia tablet during the day and spends his nights in an effort to dissipate hit newly-acquired fortune with the greatest dispatch possible, appearing first as a psuedo count and later as the genuine article. Among the many good song num bers are T'm a Hunting Jaguar,” sung by Texas Gulnan. who scores a hit In her part as an untamed Hungarian beauty with a knife In her stocking; “Tou Little Case Good Day,” an en semble number; “Serve the Cavair,” by John E. Young, as Albert, and "This Gay Parse,” by Alma Francis and chorus.” John E. Young, as Albert; Edna O. Munsey, as Gaby Gaufrett. queen of the cafee, and Alma Francis, as Yvonne, Albert’s sweetheart, are the principals, and all do excallent work. The minor parts are well taken, notably those of Adolphe, glass wash er In the case, played by Harry Depp, and Prince Max of Calmanla, by Colin CampbeU. "The Little Case ” which .will re main la the Detroit throughout the week, trill he followed Monday even ing, Nov. S. by Maude Adams. In the J. M. Barrie play. “The Legend of Lenora.” GARRICK—“The Midnight Girl." Too frequently for the pleasure of the public, good material In the way of ■ comedy and singable music is placed in the hands of mediocre peo ple. but in the caae of ‘The Mid night Oirt,’* now in the Garrick the ater, the reverse la-the case and su perior ability la wasted upon a poor excuse for a musical comedy. George MacFktlane, with a particu larly good baritone voice whose vocal work was a feature of the .revival of several Gilbert and Sullivan operas a couple of seasons ago, and Mar garet Romalne, whose voice la like wise exceptionally good, and William Pruette, who Immortalised himself In the annals of the atage with the song. “I Want What I Want When 1 Want It’’ in “Mdile. Modiste,” lead the sing ers In “The Midnight Oirl,” and thoae that follow down to the very last chorus girl and man have more than the usual claim to vocal worthiness. Teddy Webb, George A. Schiller and Denman Maley have shown them selves more than ordinarily good comedians In other vehicles, ao tne fact that they are able to create so few laughs in “The Midnight Girl can truly be laid at the door of the librettists. There is too much of the alleged humor and coarse suggestive ness that used to be considered a necessary adjunct to a cheap bur lesque show, but which has long since been discarded by the purveyors cf the last-mentioned class of entertain ment. In ’The Midnight Girl” The success of many of the recent mu sical productions have proven that clear fun, a sweet and wholesome story and decorous actions have a dis tinct appeal to the theatergoing pub lic and that commonness and vulgar ity, fortunately, have had their day and are no longer to be tolerated on the modern stage. Mr. MacFarlane and Mias Romalne have many opportunities to delight the audience with their singing.

ELLA MAE HAWTHORNE. TEMPLE—Vaodsviiis. The scribe who Is called upon to decide which Is the “headliner*' at the Temple heater this week, faces an awful task. No two acts on the oiU are o fthe same type and each ex emplifies the best in its class. Probably the best way out of the difficulty Is to say that they’re all beadtyners with Bert Fltxgibbon, “the original daffy dill/* Allan Dlnehart and Mary Louise Dyer in the sketch. ‘The Meanest Man in the World/' and 10 girlies and three youths in Will Hough’s musical comedietta, “The Lonesome Lassies/' running a neck-and-neck race for premier hon ors. Bert Fltxgibbon doesn’t do anything —except make hi saudlence laugh. He sings, tells Jokes, acts silly and enjoys himself fully as much as the crowd, which rocks with laughter throughout his allotted half-hour. Allan Dlnehart and Mary Louise Dyer do some real acting in their little sketch which depicts the bar barism of modern business and shows how, for once, a real, live bill col lector was foiled with the assistance of the little god of the bow and art rows. Dlnehart's work is of an un usually high order and affords a wel come relief from the usual run of singing and dancing acts with which vaudeville bills are filled to repletion. Ten summer girls, a Romeo, a burg lar, and a moving picture operator conspire to furnish a half-hour of fun and song in “The Lonesome Lassies/’ The music is good, the girls pretty and the business unusually clever. Julia Curtis, a double-throated miss, presents some clever imitations and scores quite a hit The Two Hollanders (Chretlenne and Louisette) are followed from their home in Holland to America In mov ing pictures. They are seen to alight at the Michigan Central station in De troit and make their way, by taxi, to the stage door of the Temple. Then they appear fog themselves. Their act Is worthy of the pretentious In troduction. Loulsstte sings in sev eral languages and dances in accept able fashion, while Chretlenne con ducts tbs orchestra. Manny and Roberts do a black facp turn that Is above the ordinary and which marits ths good “ha*ad” lg re ceives. Charles Thompson, a young English Juggler, opens with some startling faata of skill and the Pederson Broth ers. aeriaf comedians who close ths bill, keep the crowd gasping most of the time by their daring tricks. The Mooreoscope pictures are of the usual high order. MlLE*—Vaudavillt. All draped in a silken American flag. Miss Cora Greve, prims donna with a very pleating voice and attrac tive personality, sings the newest na tional song at the Miles theater, this week. It is a really “official” national anthem, for It haa the approval of President Wilson himself, he having put Ms presidential “0. K." on the spreading of the tenets of the song. “W# Stand for Peace” is the title, and It’s a swinging air that sticks to the memory. Miss Oreve has a fine repertoire of songs, and Is well re ceived. Juggling De Lisle keep# the air full of sueh oddly assorted things as tan- Ms halls, feathers, silk kats and waste baskets. In a way that is little short of marvelous, and ha appears to bav« as many hands as a spider has feet, when he Is In ths midst of his rapid-fire evolutions. Ergottl and his two Lilliputians, in an acrobatic act, made a big hit. the tiny but powerful little athletic doing some amasing stunts. The Klnkaid Kilties, a blithe and marry troupe of Scotch lads and las sies In Highland costums, form the feature of the hill, and can sing and dance as only “Hlelanders" can. - Tom Mahoney proves a good enter telnsd,- with his broad Irish wit, in corporated in a monologue that he calls “A Meeting of the Hod-Carriers' Un on/ i Sherman. Van and Hyman, who sing songs In dashing stylt. offer n bunch of surprises, including a few notes that made ths audience clamor for more of the same, though they clamored In vain. The moviee open and close the bill. ORPHEUM—Vaudeville. The Orpheum theater presents an other good vaudeville bill this week, with Bchaefer and Waller, self-sty led “The two lightning bugs," unquestion ably taking first honors. With Schae fer as ths “nutty” youth and Wailar to “bawl him out,** they keep the audi ence In continuous spasms of laugh ter. Their Jokee were good and tha nonsense refreshing. Bam Pearl and Dave Roth, billed as Just back from an European tour, sang wall, played a number of Instruments wall, and kept the audience satisfied with good Jokes and Impersonations. The Novelty Hardta, Jugglers, who open the bill, offered some decidedly new features In Juggling and drew plenty of applause. “Live Wires’* Is the title of a‘ play let given by the Desmond OaHagher players, and Is the story of a tele phone girl In n desperate effort to save her brother and another “man about town*' from the police. The brother finally gets away owing to the sacrifice made by the other “man about town/' who suddenly falls des perately in love with the pretty maiden. The hardened, cold-blooded police are foiled In a glorious finish. Ths scene Is laid In tha lobby of a hotel In the vicinity of the telephone booths. Myra Webb does quite well as the telephone girl.
