On the Screen
Geo. Ariiss in "Disraeli" at the
Strand; Wallace Reid in "The
Hell Diggers" at the Rivoli
By Harriette Underhill
Fresh from a view of "Disraeli," fhe
feature picture at the Strand this week,
George Arliss seems to us the screen's
greatest artist, and if in two or three
months rumors reach our ears that
"Disraeli" is losing money on the road
. then we will throw up our hands and
agree with the producers who tell us
that making good pictures is a thank?
less job. Henry Kolkcr has done a
great piece of work in the direction
and the star, Mr. Arliss, possesses
more magnetism than most of the
handsome heroes of the screen com?
bined. The story fascinates ono from
start to finish and yet there is very
little love interest in It, and what
there is might be deleted without leav?
ing the interest diluted.
But, in other hands, we shudder to
think of the dreary thing this story
might have become. No one would
pick as a movie plot the story of a
prime minister who was maneuvering
to get money to prevent Russia from
getting control of the Suez Canal. And
that is all there is to it. Never, pre?
vious to this, has the Suez Canal in?
terested us in the least, and yet, if
Disraeli hadn't succeeded in Rearing
Sir Michael Probert into opening the
doors of the Bank of England for the
payment of the canal we were all pre?
pared to throw ourself down in the
aisle and beat our bond on the floor.
Of all the plays which have been
transferred to the screen, it seems
that none have been more successfully
done than this one of Louis N. Park?
er's. Mr. Arliss's previous picture,
''The Devil," was only good in spots,
for tho director, James Young:, we be?
lieve it was, did some awful things,
and it is difficult for any picture to be
any better than its director, even with
a star like Mr. Arliss. He is one of
the few stage stars whom you do not
wish would talk when you first see him
on the screen. It isn't that you object
to his speech, only it isn't necessary,
He is able to convey everything with?
out vocal aid. In spite of the excellent
supporting cast, the interest drops a
little when tho star leaves the scene.
Margaret Dale is excellent as Mrs.
Noel Travers, the r?le which she cre?
ated on the stage. Mrs. George Arliss
is seen again as tho wife of Disraeli,
and she gives a splendid performance.
Reginald Denny, grown out of his al
lu ing slimness into a too, too solid
Charles, H still an adequate lover, and
Louise Huff does nothing at all as the
corresponding lover, but does it pret?
tily. Other? in the cast who do good
work are Frank Losee, Edward Rat
cliffe and Noel Toarle.
Either Mr. Arliss was especially de?
signed by Providence to play Disraeli
or else he puts on a remarkable make?
up, for ho is like him to the life or,
rather, to the portrait, for we never
saw this clever Jew who knew so well,
pearly half a century ngo, how to win
in the game of put and take.
The titles, evidently taken from the
play, leave nothing- to be desired, and
the photography, settings and costumes
make Disreali "at least 99 44-100 per?
fect. It is a United Artists production. \
Thero is a scenic prologue to the i
feature, with Judson House singing
something appropriate. Lillian Poli
sings "Giannini Mia" from. '-The Fire- i
fly." Mart??, de la Torre is heard this
week playing "Pracluoium Una Alle-1
gro." The comedy is a Pathe celled j
"Name the Day" with Snub Pollard.
"The Hell Diggers," at tho Rivoli, is
a distinct disappointment to us, for we
like Wallace Reid only in lieht comedy,
and we do not like Lois Wilson in any?
thing. She seems to us to luck all of !
the things which a leading woman of !
tho screen should have. Perhaps she |
may have a pleasant voice, and if so j
why does she not join the band of i
motion picture stars who are coming!
east to be henrd as well as seen? Th;s ?
is only i. suggestion, put in because we '
do not like to receive those scathing j
letters which toll us that our criticisms
are not constructive. Could anything'
be more constructive than that?
The hell diggers are tiie men who ;
So about with dredges digging up Cali- ?
fornia and looking for gold. Dora i
Wade (Miss Wilson) is the daughter
of a farmer who strenuously objects ?
to having the landscape thus muti?
lated, ancl as Dora is engaged to tho i
chief offender, Teddy Darman?in fact,
the very man who invented the dredg?
ing machine-tho course of true love |
does not run smooth. But Dora sug- j
gests to him that he invent a dredge
that will restore the landscape after it ;
has finished with it, instead of leaving !
it all messed up; and so Teddy d ?es. ,
It was not an easy job. but the gift of j
Dora's hand was, one infers, a big
It is distinctly not a Wallace P.eid
part. He Bhoul'd bo happy-go-lucky
and debonaire, but never efficient. He
gives a good performance, but he has
little chance to do the thing he does
best. Most of the people overact and
perhaps Lucien Littlefield is guilty,
too, but at any rato ho Is the most
amusing member of the cast. The
story and scenario are by Byron Mor?
gan and the direction by Frank
Instead of the overture thero are 1

Know Victory Is Ours
In his address at the unveiling Major
Emery expressed the hope that the
enemy of 1918 would always remember
"First?We didn't trust them in the
past and won't let them trick us into
impotency in the future.
"Second?We know th? victory is

Wants IL S. Constitution
Studied in All Schools
Security League Finds No Defi?
nite Place Is Assigned It by
Schools of Nation
Announcement was made yesterday
that the National Security League is
soon to take steps to make the study
of the Constitution of the United
States one of the standard require?
ments for school children of the coun?
try. The league is endeavoring to give
the Constitution a more important
place in public school courses because
it contains the fundamental principles
of the American government.
As the result of a recent question?
naire sent by the league to the educa?
tional officials of forty-four states and
Alaska. Porto Rico and the District of
Columbia, it was found that there is
an increased interest among educators
in the Constitution as a subject for
school study, but that the teaching of
its principles had been given no def?
inite place in the curriculum of the
This canvass also showed that in
many states the pupils may complete
the required courses in citizenship
without ever having- seen or read the
Constitution. In the announcement
made by the league of its intention to
make tho study of the Constitution a
Requirement of all grado schools no
particular method of teaching is advo?
cated. The announcement says: "The
Security League docs not lay down a
method of teaching the Constitution,
but hopes, through tho methods
adopted by the various states, to assist
in developing a general plan which will
be acceptable to all."

Returns to Hold-Up Scene
Victim of Craps ? Game Rob?
bery Wounded Twice After
Demanding His $20
James* Lamont, a chauffeur, of 522
Eleventh Avenue, was shooting crapa
with several friends at Thirty-ninth
Street and Eleventh Avenuo yesterday
afternoon, when three men came up
and peered over the shoulders of the
craps shooters. After looking on for a
moment they drew revolvers and said
they guessed they'd tako all the money
in the game. Lamont was robbed of $20.
At 7 o'clock last night ho returned
to the snot where he and his compan?
ions had been held up and discovered
the gunmen. He asked that his $20 be
"Get away from here," ?aid one, "or

Lamont argued for a moment, and as
he started off one of the trio shot him
twice in the back. He was removed to
French Hospital and then sent to Belle- .
vue. His condition is serious.
Detectives I.cef and Lowenthal, of
the West Thirtieth Street station, were
assigned to the case.

OTTAWA, Aug. 21.?Possibilities of
an early election provided a topic of
keen discussion to-night among mem
,bers of Parliament from various parts
of the Dominion, who have been drawn
to the ca? ital over the week end be
causo of the uncertain political situa?
tion. The division of opinion as to the
course the Prime Minister should pur?
sue has intensified the general interest.
It was s;;id, also, that gnat pressure
was being brought to bear in favor of
an immediate dissolution, but the ten?
dency in the last two days has been
somewhat away from that idea.
MONTREAL, Aug. 21.?The Montreal
Gazette, considered one of the strongest |
government organs in the dominion,
to-morrow will demand editorially a
call to dissolve Parliament.
The newspaper will declare that an?
other session can add nothing to the
strength of the government and that
the last Fossion of an expiring Parlia?
ment is more likely to be a scandal than

Locomotive Spark Blamed
for Conflagration That
May Smolder for Days
Twenty-four firemen were injured,
three seriously, late yesterday after-1
noon while fighting a fire which caused
$100,000 damage to the big lumber and
coal yard of the Tisdale Lumber Com?
pany, occupying the block bounded by
| Maure, Ridgewood and Ninetieth eve
j nues and the Long Island Railroad,
j in Richmond Hill. Four alarms were
! turned in. It is believed it will be sev
! eral days before the blaze, which start- ,
I ed in a four-story coal pocket, near the
J center of the yard, burns itself out.
The firo was discovered simulta
i neously by two men. Alfred Brown, of
| 3 Willow Place, saw smoke and flame
billowing from the yard and turned in ,
; an alarm. At the same time Alfred
; Low?rth, foreman of the company, who ;
j was working with a gang of six men ?n |
the yard, saw a great pile of lumber j
i in the extreme northeast corner of tho j
block burning briskly. He sent one of
1 his men to turn in an alarm and with !
the five others went to the rescue of
forty horses which were in a shed ;
Chief Joseph Mooney, of the Fifty
first Battalion, who arrived in answer
to the first alarm, turned in a second
and a third call at once, which brought
Deputy Chief John F. O'Hara. It was
found necessary to sound a fourth '
alarm and this brought Deputy Fire
Commissioner William F. Thompson to
The fire Bpread rapidly from one shed
of lumber to another, as flames leaped
more than 200 feut in the air and clouds
of black and yellow smoke rolled out.
Thousands of persons on foot, on mo
I torcycles, in automobiles, and in other
| conveyances gathered about the yard.
Power in the third rail on tho main
line of the Long Island Railroad was I
[ shut off while firemen climbed to the j
elevated platform of the West Bridge j
' Station of the line, which looks down
into the yard, and from this point !
poured water onto the burning lumber, j
Trains running between the Pennsyl- ?
vania station und Jamaica were held up !
for some time.
Five firemen of Hook and Ladder |
Company 143, who were fighting the
flames in the yard, were the first to be \
overcome by smoke. They were car- >
ried out, revived and returned to their
posts. Others were overcome from ;
time to time by the heavy smoke and ?
had to be carried to safety.
Nineteen firemen were thrown to the i
ground from the roof of a two-story ?
shed on Maure Avenue when the struc- !
ture collapsed. Three of the men wero
injured so seriously that they were j
taken to the Mary Immaculate Hos
pital. They were James Norton, in- j
