Slnco It opened on a hot August night, Arthur Hammcrstcln's new "muslglii comedy" production, "Tickle Me," must certainly be intended for a fall show. The way the audience at last night's premier In the Selwyn forgot about the heat after the curtain rose on the first Of nine enchanting scenes leaves no doubt that it will be a winter show, too. and may even see the "dog days" again. "Tickle Mc" served to reintroduce Frank Tlnjiey to a palpitating public, his public evidently waiting for him. From his first entry In black face and white hands he had the house In an im. f roar all tho time he was. on the stage, ana mat was a large part of each act Some of his stunts, like playing the bag pipes, have been seen before, and many of his lines have been heard often : but I they not only got atross, but came right nack again in the form of sldcshaklng mirth. The feminine principals Miss Louise Allen, remembered as the pert eyed ln igenue tn "Somebody's Sweetheart," and Miss Marguerite Zender. a dainty slip o romance were quite delightful.

The best received performance was the amazing acrobatic dancing of Olsa and Mlslia. closely seconded by the dancing of Miss Frances Grant, with and without her usual partner, Ted Winn. Tho chorus, advertised as "hating clothes," was seen to do so and was heard also to "hate" singing, with the exception of eight girls, who made a great hit singing "If a Wish Could Make It So." Herbert Stothart's music was never original, but it was at all times tuneful and pleasing. The book and lyrics, credited to Otto Harbach. Oscar Hammersteln, 2d, and Frank Mandel, were almost worth acknowledg ing. Praise Is due to Joseph Physloc for the scenery, altogether "new theatrelsh," and of the unusual artistic standard he set in "What's In a Name?" One nov elty, a horseshoe falls of glistening soapsuds, must keep the stage hands "forever blowing bubbles" to get It ready. Antl-VlTlseetton society Fair.

Mrs. Frederick Sharer Crofts ,of New Bat, Were the proverbial distrust of ex cessive' culinary activity founded on fact there might have been a sour pot tage In "Spanish Love," which was new at Maxlne Elliott's Theatre last night. The list of cooks occupied on that broth was Impressive. First came an Ameri can cordon bleu In Mary Roborts Rine hart with Avery Hopwood at her nlde. Then came the original authors, Jose Fillu de Codlna, Carlos de Battle and Antonln Lavorgne, who wrote "Aux Jar din de Murcle," from which the new piece Is taken. Then there was j score by H. Maurice Jacqtiet played and sung by unseen musicians. These International. collaborators did not make "Spanish Love" any different from what It has usually been tn the theatre. A hidden lover who had com mitted all but murder and was SB flight ; his victim misunderstanding the devo tion of the girl who acted with such un common seal as his nurse and this heroine, caring for the wounded man with such apparent affection only that he might get well and thus make her lover's punishment lighter these are the leading figures In Uie story. Bo there must inevitably abound pas sionate love and Jealousy, hatred and envy In the three acts In Just the same proportions that these emotions are characteristic of all tflc Spanish dramas that como to this country. All was as highly seasoned as ever, as hot 1' the mouth and as emotionally intense In several scenes. But most of the time the dramatic pulse beat languidly. Tho first act was killlngly long and dull as welL There was greater dramatic strength in the second act and the per formance of the Spanish dancers there was delightful. One wondered why Spanish lovs might not always consist of fandango and castanets, sidesteps and swirls and graceful leaps into the air. No other part of "Spanish Love" last night was so diverting as this episode of the second act. Much Local Color. Local color had been strenuously in voked. Indeed, , It is almost possible to plcturo the director daring It to stay away. The orchestra pit was occupied by a sunken forestage and the occupants cf the boxes seem to sit In the bal conies of Spanish facades, with striped ollow awnings to protect them from the southern sun. An enormous vine trailed Its leaves over the Corinth laix columns of the proscenium arch on each side. Tho actors crawled out of boxes, rushed down the aisles behind a current of wind and bumped Illusion out of the projecting fat men. The local color wag so to speak laid on thick. The Skill of the Dancers. There were fire and glow In Living ston Piatt's decorations, but a strange Indecision in tho matter of costume. The men were, as a rule, realistic In dress, some of them deferring only to the open collar aa a mark of time and place. Ihe women, on the other hand, were in a high degree operatic In apparel. The heroine was ready for "La cl darem" down to her satin slippers. The ballet of course, which had come from Madrid, according to the programme, swung its fringed shawls about and stamped Its high heels so far as the distaff side was concerned. Tango was the dance of the men. Some of them were romark ahly skilful In their steps. One diminu tive chap leaped so high In the air and with such lightness that It seemed a hidden hand must have reached down to carry him so far up Into the clouds. The highly characteristic folk music was well performed. Indeed, there were few details not suc cessfully carried out. William Powell gave a remarkably passionate and human performance of the wounded lover. His Are and abandonment car ried the audience away, so great was the contrast to the coldness of the other players, particularly Miss Maria As carra, who was altogether lacking In any communicating warmth of speech or action. James Rennle shared with Mr. Powell the honor of the acting as the fugitive. Here were again fine fire and clearness of diction. Gus Weinberg accomplished what seemed Jlke making bricks without straw In dragging an occasional laugh out of the old style peasant humor that fell to him. Kenyon Rlshop worked valiantly at his side. Russ Whytal. Henry Stephenson who never renVbtely suggested the Iberian peninsula and Ben Hendricks were other well known actors In the com pany. Wagenhals and Kempner have In "Spanish Love" some absorbing scenes, a highly colored series of stage pictures and an altogether delightful troupe of dancers. NOTES FROM THE THEATRES. 8am H.

Dr. Pease and Health Commissioner Copland may not like "The Lady of the Lamp," which had Its first presenta tion at the Republic last night, for this play by Earl Carroll starts out with a strong argument in favor of opium smoking. But then it is liable to be en Joyed by thousands who haven't the slightest fondness for the poppy drug, and it would hardly 'ncrease the con sumption of the narcotic In this city, evtn aftr a probable long run, by ono half of one per cent. It Is an extraordinary combination of "Chu Chin Chow" nd Pain's Fire works, with the best elements of each, combined with a little good old Ameri can Jast. On the programme it is set down as "an unusual play," and it is all of that, for It contains a mixture of fantasy, romance, melodrama. Oriental mysticism horror, ookum comedy and dynamite it is hard to aay "which of the two last elements s tho more blast ing. Not only haa it something of a sudevlUe co.u5d'ii,eMm ln It whlslci back to ancient China ot thousands of years ago, but the American hero who haa been transmigrate! lack to the body of a celestial emperor wields the first hand grenade In nlstory with the skill he has learned In the Ir test war. The piece can trace a lineal descent from "The Yellow Jacket," "The Willow Tree," "East Is West" and "Tho Son Daughter" In fact, It haa many of the elements of these productions, plus a dramatic sprinkling of gunpowder. To avoid too close a comparison with these productions, however, the author had shifted the Chinese theme back through the dim mists of centuries to the time when the Manchus were begtnning to shove and Jostle the peaceful Chinese In a disorderly manner. To preserve the modern touch at the same time Mr. Carroll took a young American artist of to-day back to this period via the opium pipe route, made possible by one of those Chinese merchants living In New York whose merchandise on the stage so often consists of philosophy muttered over a pipe. , Dream Motif Introduced. When this dream motif Was Introduced in the first of the six scenes one won dered how A. H. Woods came to be associated with the author in producing tho play, since Mr. Woods's name has heretofore been connected with pieces so stirring In action that if they were dreams they would awaken the dreamer. The dream change, while a familiar ex pedient of stagecraft, was aa cleverly and plcturosquely used by Mr. Carroll as It haa ever been, wafting the artist back to the Emperor'a garden at Chengtu, where dream maidens danced to LI Yun tho goddess of opium, who was the "Lady of the Lamp" In a way that suggested the bathing beauties mora characteristic of Woods's produc tions. The framework of the opiate halluci nation made possible the suggestion of Chinese modes and costumes with gor geous color effects in which the imagin ation might revel without tying the au thor tightly to the precise type of mustaches and other local color char acteristic of the Manchus. In his Chi nese incarnation the American, after some rather Inane comments over his metamorphosis, sets about saving a beautiful girl whom the Manchu con queror has demanded for himself and whom the Occidental-Oriental, even though he has yielded her up before see ing her, decides to be good enough for him after the first glance. In following out in his dream the legend of the love of the emperor for the maid, which the Chinese merchant has sketched for him Just before his stupor, tha American demonstrates what several persons has loudly asserted, that China would not have fallen Into a state of desuetude If she had only had a little of the old pep and possibly universal military training. Surrounded In a tower by Manchus seeking the girl. Artaur White (the emperor) escapes through a hidden door In an Idol after killing one of the soldiers with a bomb just In vented by the Chinese maid's father. It was like seeing history exploded before one's eyes. Likewise one realised at last when the bang occurred Just what had drawn Mr. Woods to the piece. Heroine la Slain. Caught In the garden, tho girl Is alain by the Manchu Emperor before her lover, and the Chinese episode ends on the tragio note apparently made a sacred rule In all Celestial literature. How ever, the author works everyone back Into good humor by the device with which he reunites the lovers and puts the piece on a sound paying basis again. All this leada to some highly effective situations, theatric but breath disturb ing. The 'second act. particularly on the third terrace of the Yen pagoda, and tJie culminating tragedy in the third act tn the Emperor's garden were worthy of all the red fire expended on them. The settings generally were entrancing In a dim lighting. The author deserves the credit accorded him on the pro gramme for the scenery and the beau tiful pictures, though the incidental pseudo-Chinese music is only an aid to earache. The costumes and the single dance were brilliant and striking, and only an occasional lapse Into banal dia loguo distracted attention.
