'JO.?Legislative lead? ers frankly admit that they cannot tell what fate will befall the Hill McXab resolution ratifying the pro? posed prohibition amendment to the Federal Constitution. And the spon? sors of the measure, while declaring they will fight tor It to the last ditch, are not making any prophecies as to the outconn ? The Anti-Saloon League, which is backing the resolution and fighting hard lor it, has prepared a bill, in? troduced by Assemblyman Walter S. McNab, of Schenectady, who fathered the resolution in the lower house, prohibiting the sale ana manufacture o? alcohol except for scientific, medic .r.al or sacramental purposes. This bill, if it becomes law, will take ef? fect October 1. Many here regard the introduction of the McNab bill as a confession that the proposed Federal amendment will not he ratified by the Legislature. There arc grounds for believing it will be beaten, for not only are legis I aders willing to say in private ?? ? - ation that the proposed amend should not be ratified by the Leg ?lature, and that it ought to go to the people xo be voted on at the : i? : ! eneral election, but they declare lhat in their opinion a bone-dry meas? ure is not wanted by the people.

New Jersey Seeking To Dodge Amendment \ Special Correspondence] TRENTON, Jan. 20.- The plans of the Republican majority of the New Jersey Legislature, which is now in ', do not include the considera? tion of the prohibition amendment to the Constitution of the United State?. Th<> legislative plans of the majority have In en completed and they have been approved by Governor Edge, so it is almost an absolute certainty that this state at least will not join in any nice among the states to ratify the proposed amendment to the Federal Constitution. The legislative programme is not without its interesting anti-liquor feat ures, however. During the campaign the Republican party went on record as in favor of not only the local op "io:i proposition, but also complete home rule for municipalities. Therefore, thete wa3 introduced the opening day . a bill to pivc the people of the state, divided into municipal urits, the op? portunity of deciding whether or not liquor should be sold in those muni? cipal units This measure in known as the Gaunt-Mackay bill, because it was fostered by those two Senators during '-he 1017 session. - Temperance Workers Claim Massachusetts [ Special Correspondence] BOSTON, Jan. 20. Temperance ?torkers of the state are confident that the national prohibition amendment will pass both the- House and Senate 1 spite of strenuous opposition of powerful political forces. The amend- \ "lent undoubtedly will come up before. ; the present session of the Legislature adjourns in the spring. Judging from the vote of recent years on the question of license in the various cities and towns, Massachusetts can be consiflered as favoring no li? cense a< a whole. Whether the same ?arge majorities for prohibition would he registered as have been for no li? cense is a question which at this time 'S unanswerable. Sentiment in the Senate already has been felt out. One temperance worker declared to-night that he had can? vassed the entire membership of forty and felt safe in saying that at least twenty-one will vote in favor of the , amendment. It seems to be the consensus of opin ?" that both the House and Senate may pass the amendment, placing the ; '?sue before the people and lot them: decide the issue.

On the Screen Julian E?tinge Opens in "The Widow's Might" at Rialto One would fancy that be might tire of seeing Julian Eltingc in his "ambi? sextrous" roles, but one does not tire at least, this one does not. "The Widow's Might," which was presented at the Rialto yesterday, is rather more elaborate us to plot than Eltingo's pre? vious screen vehicles, and it is ex? tremely amusing as well an extremely well tionc. Julian never looked so lovely as he did in the part of the Princess Mar? tini, and oins is reminded of Frank Tinney's lines, "The Widow's Might! 'The widows do." And the Princess .Martini ?lid everything and every? body. She .secured tho papers which convicted the villain and adopted tho "chc-ild," and what could any romane?? need further than that? When tho story opens Julian Eltinge, who is Dick Tavish when he is clothed and in his right mind, has just learned that he has bought a mine which really belongs to some one else by an old Spanish law, so he sets out for the city to right things. In attempting to se? cure tho evidence from the safe of Horace Han.mer he is caught and has U make his getaway down the tire es enpe. Ho enters the first room which has an open window and?-yes, you have guessed it he snatches a wig nnd opera coat from the occupant of the room and, opening the door, faces his pursuers. He rolics on the vanity of the for? mer owner of the wig to protect bis secret. And it seems that he knows feminine nature, for rather than admit that her hair is of the sort that can be stolen away from lier she or? ders another wip and remains silent. Florence Vidor plays the inevitable young woman who falls in love with Dick Tavish and then becomes the close friend of the princess. Gustave Seyf fertitz is the disagreeable hammer, and Maym Kclso the lady who owns the whr. The story was written by Marion Fairfax and directed by William C. Dc Mille. Selections from "The Queen of Sheba" were rendered as an overture by the Rialto orchestra and the chorus. Emanuel List, sang "Asleep in the Deep," and Gaston Dubois, 'cellist, played "The Neapolitan Dance," by Ca sclla. On the musical programme. M'as also the prelude to Act. IV from "Car? men" and an organ solo by Finnin Swinnen. The comedy was called "Five to Five." A man who sat behind us in the Strand Theatre yesterday during the presentation of "Stella Maris" ex? claimed: "By Jove, that is a clever lit? tle girl! Who is she?" He was speak? ing of Mary Pickford, and it is not to he wondered at that he did not recog? nize little Mary, for no one would. She did some wonderful character work as tho little waif who bore a .slight resemblance to the beautiful Stella Maris. Only Stella was tall, and Unity or Amity, or whatever her name was, was short. And Stella was straight and the waif was crooked, and Stella's fact' was plump ami round, and the waif's was thin and peeked; and one had large eyes and curly hair, and the other lad small eyes and stringy hair. Tho double exposure work was the best we ever have seen, with the pos? sible exception of that done by William Farnum in "The Tale of Two Cities." The two girls talked to each other and crossed back and forth across the screen, and there was none of that halting and standing stiiTiv on either side of the dead line which makes double exposures so obviously a bit of trick photography. Stella walked where she liked and tho ?thcr one walked where she liked, and even when they were talking face to face there was not the slightest resemblance between the two characters. Miss Pickford never looked more lovely than she did as Stella Maris, hut. i; was in the r?le of the poor little wretch that she did her host work. Conway Toarle brought all of the charm which is his to the r?le of John, the u:ihappy lover. The outdoor scenes are magnificent, ami there are some amusing bits with two wonderful dogs, a Great Dane and a Pomeranian. If any there be who think that Mary Pickford is not. a great actress let him g?? to see "Stella Maris" and bo con? vinced. The overture was from "Pagliacci." Herbert Waterous sang "Gypsy John" and "It's a Long Way to Berlin, but We'll Get There." Grace Hoffman sang "The Song of Kisses," by Bembcrg. The comedy was a James Montgom ery Fiagg, called "The Superstitious Girl." It wa?; rtaged by Jack Eaton. Harry Carey, in "The Phantom Rid? ers," is the feature at the Broadway Theatre this week. Carey does bis usual r?b: of Cheyonne, and the plot seems rather complicated, but as the story progresses it gets all shot to pieces anyway and no one misses it. "The Phantom Riders" are a body of men who go about like the Ku-Klux Klan, seeking whom they may avenge, and after Cheyenne has escaped death by knife, rope and water, he is about to fall a victim to an over-abundance of bullets when "The Phantom Riders" come up end rescue him. II. V. The whole world is a sfiop and every one lias something to sell. Holding Down the Wrong Job By Henry Cragin Walker [?Jupyrlght, luis, by The Tribunu Association] A FRIEND of mine went into a restaurant, and the waitress spilled some soup in his lap. lie forgave her and went there again, and she dropped some hot coffee down his neck. No, friends, he never went there afterward. The lady didn't dislike him, but she was a waitress in name only'. She's probably goo?l for something, but it's not waiting on customers in a restaurant. Last summer a man spent all day cutting the grass in my front yard, about sixty square feet. That is to say. he said it took him all day, and I guess by his appearance it did. A laborer unworthy of his hire greased the rear wheels of my car and forgot to put. the cotter pins back. The wheels came off, and it cost me eighty-seven dollars and a sprained wrist. Then the garage man sent me a bill of four dollars for time and grease. This is not a hard luck story, but 1 want to arise and calmly call the attention of the audience to this fact, to wit: The reason so many folks get small pay and no pay is because they have the wrong jobs. Heaven only knows what their proper jobs should be, but; it's something far different from what they now do. I note in the news columns that a barber in New York retired after thirty years of service with three hundred thousand dollars. He had clipped, shampooed and massaged many men of prominence, and they no doubt tipped him well and perhaps gave him good advice on stocks that were going up. But mark this! If he had been a "half way" barber; if he had talked them to death or made un? pleasant reflections about their falling hair or without warning put over-hot towels on their tender faces, he would have "retired" long before thirty years. but with three thousand enemies instead of three hundred thousand dollars, : It begins to look to me as though the persons who got the biggest salaries wore often the most underpaid. When a cook can't, even time an egg properly lie or ?he should cease to masquerade as a chef and seek another calling. Do you know why taxes are so high? Why, these are sofnc of the reasons, i "Innocent" on Screen At Eltinge Theatre When A. H. Woods made out his list of guests for his first showing of the screen version of "Innocent" he should have chosen a larger theatre or elsa curtailed the list. There were twice as many people a? there were seats in the Eltinge Theatra last night, which is a fault of these in? vitation showings. Fannie Ward plays the role created by Pauline Frederick in the stage ver? sion. Miss Ward occupied a box an?t every one had u chance to see if she looked as young off the screen as sho iloe^ on. She wore a little blue straw bonnet, trimmed with pink roues, and one never would have guessed her to bo more than eighteen. One stout woman remarked to her companion: "My dear, that can't lie she. Why. she played in New Haven, twenty-live years ago," Rut il was, an?! she is the marvel of the age. "Innocent,"' as presented on the screen last night, is a triumph of mo? tion picture art. The stage was set with beautiful Chinese gardens, and pa? godas; the ushers were dressed in gor? geous Chinese coats, incense rilled the air and the music was of the Orient. In the main the story conforms to tho pl?t of the original play, hut it is much more cheerful in Its screen form, for '.t has a happy ending. As in "Camille" land other stage plays, the prologue is j a sort of epilogue. You see John Wyini hain shoot himself and you believe ho I is dead, and then the story goes back t and tells of the events leading up to I his attempt at self-destruction. No pains or expense have been ! spared to make the picture perfect in ! every detail, and some of the scenes Inn; truly magnificent. But that is not I why people arc going to go to see "Innocent," and then go again ^and again. II. U. Closer Relationship Of Churches Urged A plea for a closer relationship be? tween the Anglican and Episcopal churches and those churches of the Far East- the Russian, Greek, Bulgarian, Armenian and others?was made yes? terday by Bishop Edward M. Arker, of Now Hampshire, in his sermon at a special service in Trinity Church. This service marked the opening of tho annual meeting of the American branch of the Anglican and Eastern As? sociation, formed for tho purpose of promoting intercommunion between the Kpiscopal and Anglican churches and those of the East. "In this American melting pot, with the keen, wide awake American sym? pathies for fellow men," said the Bishop, "we have a greater opportunity to prepare the bed for the union of Christian churches for which Christ calls than we have ever had before." Representatives of the patriarchial tburches in the city attended the ser? vice. The meeting of the association will close to-night. ?CARNECIE HALL TO-DAY^ ?5i Tho? , ??nil St. *l 'i'r P.'wa.v. Tel!

Music _: Musical Tableaux From Rim sky-Korsakoff's Opera Feat? ure of Russian Symphony AU except one of the pieces played Saturday night by the Russian Sym? phony Society under Mr. Altschuler's baton at Carnegie Hall were new to New York, and presumably to the coun? try. Though Russia has passeii through the first furor of musical treation, it is evident that her musicians have not ceased to compose vigorously and beautifully. The most interesting piece in an? ticipation was the suite of "four mu ! sical tableaux" from Ttimsky-Korsa koff's opera, "The Golden Cockerel.' which is to be sung later in the season at the Metropolitan. And it was this that proved the most entertaining. The music, as elucidated by the programme depicts the snoring idleness of th? Czar Dodon in the home, the alarn and hasty departure, the. battle, th? survey of the lield of slaughter, th? dance with the Queen of Shemakhan the splendid wedding with the ?ami exotic lady, and finally the sad end o Dodon. done to death by the cockerel. Itimuky-Korsakoff wrote all his note to be heard, and under Mr. Altschuler' direction nearly all of them were. Witl a facile sureness of touch which fev composers of the later nineteenth cen tury equalled, he burlesqued with mas terly deftness the fraudulent pomp an splendor of the Romanoff autocracj which is now gone forever. The pei formance of the opera itself only gain in interest.by being thus anticipated i i the concert hall. Rachmaninoff's "Vocalise"' is, M: Altschuler avers, "the cry for freedot and deliverance which went forth froi i the heart of Russia prior to the revolt I lion." It proved to be a strangely pen? ?t rating melody scored (even ovei scored) for the orchestra by Mr. Alt schuler. .lurassovsky's symphoni poem, "Th?? Phantoms," is an ably wrii ten work in the newer manner, wit traces of nationalism. Spendiaroff "The Sermon of Beda," is an'eloqucr and moving scena. which was sung by Sophie Rraslau with something of the intensity wherewith the venerable Bede j stirred the very stones to respond "Amen." Hut ?Stravinsky's suite of '?ongfl, narrating to Pushkin's words the adventures of the Shepherdess and the ; Faun, scarcely justified tho fluttering i which the announcement of it had caused in ultra-modern hearts. It was, one feels "sure, a student work, always diverting, at times beautiful, but never highly stimulating. As for the "Poeme d'Extase." which whs played "in memoriam" of Seria Bine, it must have made many in the ' audience hope that in the future he may rest in peace. It is music of the ; i sort to evoke learned books, such as | that by Dr. Englelield Hull, but not of j the sort to stir the emotions. There is a "Scriabine movement" already lustily initiated in New York and ad- , j vertised in tho public prints, and many I are already proud that they can under- ? ; stand the man's music. But one sus-1 ; pects that the persons are few who can ! i honestly step forward and say without | : a flutter of pride that they really ! like it. Miss Bianca Randall gave the third | of n series of song recitals last night in the George ?M. Cohan Theatre. Miss Randall is a good looking young woman, I who in voice, style and interpretive j power apparently has nothing to offer to New York. She sang songs by a ! large number of composers, including i Brahms. Massenet, Purcell and Cyril | Scott. Harry M. Gilbert played her sc ! conipunirnents. Julius Koehl, a fairly young and very youthful pianist, gave a recital last ? evening in the Princess Theatre. He ? is highly talented and technically able, but his playing at present is tempera? mental rather than temperate. How lever, the sheer delight which he takes :in the sensuous beauties of the piano ! disarms the criticism of the audience ', as it apparently disarms his own. Miss Ruth Dwinn assisted with a group of i songs. In the afternoon Paolo Martucci played an interesting programme of : piano pieces with a restraint that often robbed his music of color and vitality. ? Only in the use of his pedal was he i sometimes unrestrained. Indeed, it ?Handel could have heard Mr. Martucci, pedalling through long runs and trills in his "Musette" he would probably (have condemned the modern invention; lof the pedal to the same Inferno. ?

Kphn to Mr. Gatti-Casazza, in which Mr. Kahn wrote: "In tendering you this expression of gratitude and admiration I am voicing the sentiments not only of the board of diiectors, but also, I feel sure, of the artists and staff of our organiza? tion and of the patrons of the Metro? politan Opera House. "You have maintained the liest tra? ditions or a world-famous institution and you have added to them features of great excellence. It is true, no artists have come forward within the last ten years -or, probably, ever will come forward- to eclipse the great names of those who adorned the Met? ropolitan stage under your predeces? sors. "But you have ever ??epn ?iiligently on the search to secure for the Metro? politan Opera Company the best sing err; available, and in everything else which appertains to operatic perform? ances, such as chorus, orchestra, scenery, statrc management and en? semble, you have set a standard never approached in former years. You have given to the Metropolitan Opera Com? pany a higher artistic dignity, a great? er seriousness of artistic striving than it ever had before."
