"Teddy" Explains "His Policies" Via Lew
Dockstadcr at Keith's.
Tho ubiquitous "Teddy," tho loquacious
"Teddy," the "Teddy" Don Quixote charging
tho windmills of predatory wealth, the famous
founder of tho "Annnlas club" and tho wlclder
of the "big club," appeared yesterday at Kclth'a
Chestnut Street Theatre vicariously In tho per
son of Lew Dockstadcr, that Joyous minstrel
Clothed In khnkl uniform, wenrlng tho famil
iar spectacles nnd tho grinning teeth, the cele
brated black-faced Low gave a burlesque of a
certain "third-term candidate" which Is one of
tho most uproariously aide-splitting funny acts
that has appeared In vaudeville. Charging
back and forth. Imitating the famous hissing
voice to perfection, Dockstader proceeded to
explain the famous "policies."
"The Constitution of the United States gives
men the privilege of thinking for themselves,"
declared he, with n sweep of tho arm. "But If
nny man disagrees ulth me he disabuses that
"It Is true, ns many pcoplo eay, that I ro
semblo Georgo Washington in many ways.
George Washington ficrvod Ills country so did
I. Georgo Wnnhlngton led tho battles of his
country so did I. Georgo Washington never
told a lie ah, there's where I got It on George.
"During my absence in South America many
things hnppencd. During my absenco In South
America tho birth rate decreased below the
birth rate of uny country on tho globe. Now,
I don't mean to ay I blame tho Democrats.
But tho people should havo been more 'pro
gressive.' "When I got back nfter my lght months'
nbsenco what did I find that AVllson and Bryan
had done to MY country When I left MY
country MY pcoplo were happy. When I came
back MY pcoplo were unhappy.
"When I was in South America the doctor
gave mo a hypodermic injection, and I began
to discover things. I discovered a river a
river 1000 miles long. I'd have discovered mor,
only tho doctor lost his hypo. Among other
things I discovered new and strange birds. I
discovered what I called the prohibition bird.
Tho prohibition bird Is a busybody, with a
largo mouth. At night it seeks the wet places.
"Now I don't have anything against Bryan.
Bryan 13 called Colonel, and so am I. But
when people salute me they salute an officer
of the army. Bryan never saw a battle. When
people salute Bryan as Colonel they mean the
Interior of n nut."
Of the nine acts on the Keith bill this week
not one can be adversely criticised as lacking
In genuine amusing qualities nnd high order of
prcsentatlon-the bill Is of superlative excel
lnce and a top-notch combination In vaude
ville where, too often, tho salad Is spoiled by
bugs In the leaves.
Irvln Cobb's appealing story, "Sergeant
Bagby," has been mado Into an act of de
licious, romantic humor. It Is reunion day In
the South. The Southern soldier nnd tho
Yankee meet and are about to fight, but, under
tho Influence of the genial, beloved Bagby,
shake hands for a reunited country. There Is
nn elopement, a marriage under unique cir
cumstances nnd Bagby telling the story of
tho impending battle, when the Oeneral asks;
"Where Is Sergeant Bagby?" "Here, your
honor," replies Bagby, bowing. "Then," says
the General, "let the battle proceed "
Ma-Belle aery, faery with a ballet of equally
aery, faery girls, floats, soars and glides through
a series of captivating dances. Ma-Belle lifts
you Into th air, takes you with her into the
magical mazes of the ilanae coquette and solo
classlque. Ma-Belle and her dances aro alto
gcther lovely.
In contrast to the rest of the bill, Chris Rich
ards, an English comedian, performs grotesque
antics different from but as funny as the act
of Dockstader, and Lambert), In quick changes,
gives marvelous impersonations of Liszt, Holl
man, Johann Strauss, Paderowskt and Gounod.
In "Tho Rube," presented by Mr. and Mrs.
Jimmy Barry, Barry appears as Zeke Wilklns,
ffom Hensfoot Corners, in New York selling
eggs. In the role of a "Johnny" courting Dazle
Dazzleinan, the actress, he effects bucolic
facial expressions provocative of such high
humor that one might with Justification call
him "the Mark Twain of vaudeville."

In "Chin-Chin" at the Forrest.
Mrs. Fiskc in a Deliciously Amusing
Comedy, "Lady Betty Martingale."
An Orchid Among Plays.
A gay and dashing lady, a dare-devlllsh,
gambling, swearing lady, a lady of wit, engag
ingly unscrupulous, borrowing money right and
left, and running up exorbitant bills at the
dressmakers, Jewelers and perfumers. Such H
Lady Betty, the heroine of the new comedy
bv John Luther Long, the celebrated author
of "Madam Butterfly," and Frank Stayton, nn
Englishman, which opened last night at the
Broad Street Theatre. By the Incomparable
art of Mrs. Fisko, Lady Betty vivaciously
and volubly stepped Into life from the time of
George II, and for nigh three hours delight
fully held a curious, surprised and questioning
audlenco by her whimsical escapades.
In n day of plays dealing with politicians,
criminals, lady smugglers, millionaires with
pasts, derelict husbands and musical comedies
of surface humor. Lady Betty Martingale ap
pears as an orchid In the theatrical conserva
tory of ferns and geraniums. Quaint In Its
hoop-skirt charm, bizarre In its reminiscence of
Sheridan and the atmosphere of 1750. tho popu
larity of the play at this tlmo Is still dubious.
For while the play must have an irresistible
appeal to those who enjoy the unusual, the
subtle, the exotic, it will be Interesting to ob
serve what wider appeal It may have for those
who throng houses featuring gorgeous girls In
glittering gowns or abbreviated apparel.
Lady Betty, summoned by her father, Canor.
Slowpeok, who has expended 20.000 pounds of
money borrowed from Sir Ricochet Rnsclble.
Lord High Chancellor of England, on tho writ
ing of n dictionary, is confronted in tho first
net by the aforesaid Sir Ricochet, who sinks
upon his knees and bogs her to marry him.
The corpulent Sir Ricochet, an Lady Betty
sayp, has truly a strawberry nose." Arthur
Elliot, an the blustering, bullying High Chan
cellor, Is roarlngly funny only he roars too
loudly at first and thus destroys tho effect of
his rage nfter Lady Betty swearing rushes
away, screaming "The Jail! The Jail!" Prefer
Ing Jail to marriage. Bailiffs are waiting with
out to arrest Lady Betty for her debts and
take her to the fleet.
Lady Fewlts Mario Chambors arrives after
the outraged Ricochet has departed In high
dudgeon. Her most Intimate friend, Lady
Tewlts advises Lady Betty how to escape tho
bailiff and Jail. She tells of a certain noble
lady who put a wreath of purple flowers In her
hair and by means of a Jeweled dagger bled
to death. "But purple flowers do not become
tho color of my hair," laments Betty, "and I
have no Jeweled dagger."
Another noble lady, softly says Lady Fewlts,
Jumped Into the English channel. "But she
was discovered three days later, and. oh dear,
they say her appearance wns dreadful dread
ful. It was so unfortunate but then she dirt
not expect to appear before people again.
Lady Fewlts has suddenly an Inspiration-she
remembers another lady who, pressed by cred
itors, went to Newgate prison and married a
man who wns hanged the following morning.
Now at this period, according to law, a hus
hand, on marrying a woman, assumed her
debts. By marrying a man to be hanged a
noble lady could expeditiously get rid of her
debts and her husband ns well
In Newgate prison, Puggs, the burly Jailer,
capitally enacted by Percy D. Standing, prol
poses to Jock Rumple, who Is condemned to be.
hanged the following morning, that ho thus
help n lady out of a dilemma by marrying her.
For this little service he will receive such com
pensation ns will enable Suggs to enjoy a tip
and buy a coffin In which to bury Jock. Lady
Betty nnd her friend, having eluded the bailiffs,
have arrUed at the prison, and beholding
ladies, though masked, so fair, the gallant pris
oner consents to the ceremony.
Newgate Jail is about to be burned by in
cendiaries. Sir Ricochet. Informed of the plot
by Terram-Tyke, solicitor for tha condemned
Jock, arrives at tha Jatl Just after Lady Betty
has been married. Learning of tha marriage,
importuned hy the solicitor. Sir Ricochet re
venges his rejection by pardoning Lady Hetty's
unknown husband.
Five months later Lady Betty, relieved of her
