Mr, Belasco, nt once manager and producer In tho sense that the designation used to bo understood, has accustomed the public to finding behind his footlights tho finest achieve ments In the art of tlvo native theatre. But his record needs no repetition here, although there are few Incidents which afford the Now York public so much oause for pride as the thought that this i playhouse, with all that It represents, la altogether a metropolitan Institution. Jir. Utlaeco licgan tho present year with an essay In a field In which ho has not always been so happy ns In some others. "Tho Boomerang," which Wlnoholl Smith and Victor Mapcs wroto for him, Is a comedy. Thero ure among Mr. Delasco's many admirers some who v)ue more his effort In the serious drama. It Is In this field that his great est successed have been won. Hut there was first the Intorcst attached to such a novel opening for the plu house. How the IloomrmiiK Works. The boomerang which the Joyful Australian hurts through the air some time recoils on tho person who starts It in motion The application of the title to the subject matter of tho pl.iy may be gathered from a recital of Its In cidents. To a young physician conies a g.rl, not in search of treatment, ilh he td hoKl, but louxlng for work, and the Is installed as h'-n nurse. Another vitor is k real patient, brought by his mother, who cannot tell what alls him. But the physician, whosu profcrcdon Is to discover what alls his patients, soon detects symptoms of such Jealousy as to be expllcablo as the cause of all his visitor's ll!ncs. Evidently the object of his patient' affection does not recipro cate. She Is Indeed Interested In a cer tain other person. It lfl tho doctor's theory that she should be made Jealous and, thus grow to return the love of the man who has becom-j 111 on hor account. So he sends along the new uurso In order that she may not as tho antidote and cause tho Indifferent beloved to grow Jealous. All these, incidents hap pen In the office of the young doctor. The prescription proves ierfectly lilted to tho cose. But It has a second ary effect which Is not at all a p.irt of the doctor's plans. He falls violently In Jove with the young woman who has done so much to make his patient un happy, lie Is Just us Jealous of the young man In whom she takes an In terest as his patient was. Hut he Is lesv unhappy, since he succeeds, after the sufferings that come from his own Jealousy, In winning the young woman whom his patient lovod. Tho patient, now cured, gets the nurse as h! lot; so there Is no ground for unhapptness on his part The second act passes In the living room of this young woman's house and the third returns to tho otllco. Full of the Spirit of Youth. The usual first night nudlenoe, which Included rnost of the theatre's celebri ties not nt present occupied In theatres of their own, took the greatest delight in me new comwly of Mr. Smith and Mr. Mspes. The play Is In Its present form too long for Its content. Hut tint did not Interfere with the enjoyment of tho 8ectators. The new work la full of the spirit of youth ; Its scenes ure cleverly devised and there Is much In Its treatment of the question of medical practice which will arial to the public. Iloth Mr. Mapes and Mr. Smith, who had to thank the audience after the second act. arc experienced In their Held and to their kill was added Sir. Ilelasco's ability to present a play of this or any other Wjd. Indeed tho acting of tho principal rous was uncommonly line. Wallace Kddlnger. as the Invalid, who had to have his body treated when only nls emotions were affected; Arthur Hymn, as the doctor who found his first Patient and looked nfter him so success fully, and Iluth Bhcpley as the flirtatious beloved, were ndmlruble, Martha Hed man's acting as the nurse was full of charm and distinction. The evening was one to bring com plete satisfaction to the plnywtights, to Mr. Ilelasco and above all to the public, "hlch Is after all the most Important lenient to be considered.

PRINCE HAS 28 CENTS TO PAY OFF $35,542 Piirnntcllt d'Arnpon, Faclnpr lliir Judgment, FIIch Hank ruptcy Petition. WAS MARIUEI) TN SPRING Prlnro I.udovlro Plgnntellt d'Armron, formerly of Sp.itn. but now nf Merrick, 1.. I filed a petition In bankruptcy In Brooklyn yesterday, setting forth that his llabllltlrM lire I3S.S42.32 and Ms ns- Mli JSS7.2S, of which 28 cent are in cash. It Ih understood lis went Into bankruptcy with the approval of his father-in-law, O. Jason Waters of Phil adelphia, whose daughter, Iluth Morfin Waters, ho wedded at th Church of St. Ignatius Loyola In this city on May 4 without tlio knowledge of or consent of hor parents. Tho Prince's financial troubles are due to a series of unfortunate accidents and Incidents that started when an automo bile ha was driving ho has long been fond of autotnobltlng collided with a machine owned by Kdward It. O'Connell ncnf tho Merrick bridge early on the morning of July 10, 1914, Mr. O'Connell died of his Injuries several days later and Mrs. Alice P. O'Connell, as eecu trlx of her husband's estate, obtained a verdict of 115,000 damages against the Prlnco In the Supreme Court at Mlneola on Jun lt last. A Judgment of close to $16,000, Includ ing costs, was entored and the Prince hoped to bo able to satisfy It, but re mittances which ho had been receiving from a relative In the old country were stopped becauso of the war and he fopnd himself without mentis. He heard threuts had been made to cause his ar rest on a body attachment because of his Inability to satisfy the Judgment ns.d proceeded to take advantage of tha bankruptcy laws. No Mnrrlngr Settlement. A friend of the Prince said yesterday that Plguatelll Is a very democratic and lovable young man, who by reason of his early training, or rather lack of It, has found It extremely dltllcult to earn a living. Ho has always lived In afflu ence. At one time he thought nothing of sptndlng 11,000 to entertain his friends at a single dinner. He can drive an au tomobile with great skill, can operato an aeroplano and shoot to perfection, but he hasn't shown any special skill In mak ing American dollars with his brains or his hands. When the Prince secretly married Ml Waters there was no marriage settlement, and PUnatelH's friend says, none was expected. The young pair were forgiven by Miss Waters's parents and more than mice tho Prince has attended social af fairs at his wife's former home. It Is said he tried to Interest her family In a plan-lo prosecute an appeal from Mrs. O'Connell's Judgment, believing he could upset the verdict, but they took kindly only to the suggestion that he go through bankruptcy. In the bankruptcy petition, which waa (lied on the Prince's behalf by John Pat terson, a lawjer of 43 Cedar street, the O'Connell Judgment was the largest single liability listed. Contingent lla bllltles of $7,&00 are represented by suits pending as a result of the same acci dent In which Mr. O'Connell met his dtath. Other liabilities are (1.926.44 to the Bltz-Carlton for hotel accommoda tions In January, 1313, 1208.14 tTJ? B, Sherwood for can hire, &c. and 10,302 to the Ktnplre State Furniture Company for furniture. Anuria I3numerfitrd. The assets Include, besides the 28 cents In cash, fourteen suits of clothes, three overcoats, forty shirts and a few other articles of nppnrel and K00 due on open accounts for tho Prince's services as a broker. The .Item of 700 alleged to be dun him discloses the fact that the Prince attempted to make a living by executing private sales for personal friends. In 1512 It was reported that tha Prince was engaged to marry Mlse Mary I,. Duke, dauuhler of Benjamin Duke of New York and Durham, N. C. but this was denied nt the time by Miss Duke's parents. In 1911 the Prince tried to kill himself In Paris, the cables said at the time, because he had been Jilted by an American girl.
