the threatened question.

toward an electric push-button. You

"On tho stage, of course," I added, re
assuringly, also hurriedly. The stage

It Is a matter of business," responded
Miss Lllja, "and whllo 1 stimulate as

As mentioned before casually, en

I will do my best."

There are a great manr'thlngs to be
said about the concert given by the Phila
delphia Orchestra jesterday afternoon
U was a Wagner program done In ac
cordance with that tradition obtaining In
every great ajmpliony organization, that
of all the composers, Wagner and Beet
hoven, are entitled to programs of their
own. It was, moreover, well done, with
such reservations as shall hereinafter ap
pear. It was well received.
Mr. Stokowskl spared neither himself,
his orchestra nor the audlcnco In tho ar
rangement of the works. The result
should bo gratifying to him. For a mo
ment after the end of tho last but ono
number It looked as If Uie "Star-Spangled
Uanncr" was being played so many peo
ple wcro standing tip. Hut It turned out
that the prospect of tho "Kalsermarsch,"
after five other numbers and at 4 30 of
n bright afternoon was too much for
them. Thoso who stayed wero Justified
In their trust.
Frledrlch Nietzsche, was for a time the
only man who understood the later Wng
ner. When ho cried out scornfully of
Parslfnl, "1st das Doutsch?" ho meant
Is this Wagner; Is this religion; Is this
honest? All those questions ho nnswereo
In the negative Yesterday Mr. Stokow
skl nnd his orchestra played tho Parsi
fal numbers so as to bring the questions
up ngnln. To play the music of an opera
In nn orchestra program Is undoubtedly
uno never forgives tho curtain
going up after tho "Tristan'
To play "Parsifal" Is doubly
Thero fa tho
strength of tho opora, without tho dls-
yesterday's performance was so terrible.
Mr. Stokowskl chose to play Wagner ox
cenently; he did nothing with tho "Par
sifal" beyond what Its author had tlono.
And nil the pallid strength or It came out,
tho religiosity which surpasses religion,
tho fnlth which Is not strong, tho over
powering, unmanly consciousness of sin.
If It comes In the end to determining
why "Dlo Mclsterslngcr" is right and
"Tristan" Is right and "Pnrslfal" Is
wrong, tho answor will be that Wagner
was Infinitely superior to "Parsifal." Ho
was a man whoso life was apart from
tho things which "Parsifal" expresses.
If he suffered, he did not "blanche," ho
aid not know "fearful rue for sin gnaw
ing at his heart," ns he oxpressos tho
theme of the Vorsplel What on earth
had he do with these things?
Except pqsslbly this There are In
music and In tho othor arts a group of
Joy-worshlpcrs, they who made popular
tho phrase, "la Jolo do vivro," In Its
original French. They are usually tho
saddest people In tho world. Wagner, In
"Parsifal," Is a reverse caBe. It Is not
faith, but a false will-to-falth that ho
expresses. The "ancient wisdom and
austere control" of truo religion are not
hero. They are, Incidentally, In tho folk
melodies of tho "Kalsermarsch." "Parsi
fal," muslo and all, Is tho molodrama of
Did Mr. Stokowskl intend this? Prob
ably not. For, as has been said, he

nouueuon or lire and the seduction of
rellgion-tho Parsifal type, hence rip
posed to life ho made equally moving.
Thero was Wagnor, fortunately at tho
end. Fortunately becauso Wagner alone
can be antidote to Wngner. There was
tha "Faust Oveiturc," In which every
passion Is for life and every deslro for
something tangible. And here, surpris
ingly, occurred a disastrous moment, in
wmen euner Mr. BtokowBkt took liber
ties with his music, or his men took lib
erties with Mr. Stokowskl. Tho slack
was rapidly takon up, however, and al
though tho piece is far mote interesting
than appearedyesterday.lt was sufficiently
good after what went before. Following
it was the direct, honest human senti
ment of the "Siegfried Idyl." For tho
longing and tho passion of the "Parsifal"
this had danco and contentment nnd
good cheer. And Anally thero was tho
If the Idyl had danco, the "Kalser
marsch" had what Is far superior; It had
war. And beyond that, It had religion.
Not Wagnerian religion, but tho religion
of the people. It had a tremendous beat,
a. rhythm of life, a blessed relief from nil
sentlpiont and sickness and Ineffectual
desire. It had even nobility. If this bo
noise and it was played lustllv nmi
grandly as noise then thank Heaven for
noise. If this be vulgarity and "Parsifal"
the refinement of life, thank Heaven for
vulgarity. For outsldo tho Academy yes

the lights wero bright, and life, in spite
of all, was "wanton and wondrous and

Tho tlmo Is coming when photoplay
theatres will havo to chargo a larger ad
mission fco than they do at present. The
trend of things Is such that tho prophe
sied Incrense will bo compulsory, and tho
public will havo to pay. It Is tho public's
fault at that. In the oarly days of photo
play history tho public was happy and
contented with ono-rccl lllmi, costing
practically nothing to produce The pro
ducers could sell such a Dim for 2 an
evening and make money.
Then camo Luhln a Inspiration to film
actual plays, with the consequent two
and three reel films. The acenery was
more expensive, a larger number of ac
tors was necessary. Next come the gi
gantic productions of tho last year. In
volving outlays of from .0,000 to J100,
000 "Tho Spoilers," "Julius aesnr."
"Zudorn," "Tho Beloved Adventurer"
and others of this type.
Tho rental for a lllm llko tho "Zudora"
Is J30 a night. Somo of the reols run
ns high as 5150 a night. It takes 3000
nickels to mako up this sum, to which
must be added light, rent, advertising,
salaries. So that "000 admissions in a
day and this number Is large would not
pay for the oxpenso of running a photo-
So It Is only reasonable to acquiesce In
tho proposal to Increase, admission rates.
It Is Just to the managor and, what Is
moro Important, such a move will help
materially to take tho photoplay house out
of tho "sideshow" and "museum" class.
Still another view to take Is that ln-
creased admissions In the photoplay
world will help tha speaking thoatre by
diverting back to It the auditors who de
sorted tho "legitimate at 2 a seat for
tho "movie" at 5 cents.
Tho public Is getting tired of tho Wild
West - melodramatic - could - not - happen
films. Producers might as well realize
that first as last. Tho day has gone by
when tho slapstick comedy will do more,
than gain a contemptuous smllo, The
photoplay public has been educated to
something better and It Is demanding
It Is no longer satisfied with the West
ern Dlrtures in which tho hero does im
possible things, arrives in tho nlok of
tlmo and weds tho heroine. The publla
wants virile plays, true, but It wants
something reasonably possible.
And also tho public wants educational
and travel and news pictures The weekly
news review of the Pathe and Seltg stu
dios are as an oasis In a wilderness or
trash. Educational bodies, the churches
and religious societies are clamoring for
subjects suitable for their needs. Which
producer will take advantage of tha sit
uation to supply the demand? It mean
money for tho man first In the field,

havo delved Into the literature of other
nations, when rendy-mado plays havo
been oxhaustcd, what then? What will
tho featuro fllmers do for subjects? This
query may seem frivolous at first Blanco,
but It represents a possibility rapidly
So many plays are being filmed that
tho supply must, a3 n mnttcr of course
be seriously doplotod In tho course of
mcnsurnble time. It Is true that now
plays aro bolng produced nlmoot dally,
but these will not bo released for photo
rlay purposes for months and perhaps
oven years not until they havo outlived
their usefulness In the stock company
So what will tho producers do? Will
dramatists llko Bclasco, Bernstein,
I'lnero. Sudermann, Hauptman, Brieux,
Klein and others wrlto special plays for
film production? If not, what will tho
featuro proUucors do for material?
And what will tho public do whon tho
supply lins failed? Go back to tho tho
atre? THE VOGUE OF THE MOVIES.
Many reasons havo been assigned for
the voguo of photoplays, but the best one
so far appears to be ono advanced by a
prominent theatrical manager In this city.
Stnndlng In the half-empty auditorium of
his houBo, he dcclalmod regretfully:
"It Is the folly of the producing man
agers that has brought about empty
houses for tho theatres Leaving asldo
tho question of nearness to the home of
tho prospective auditor, tho fuult lies ab
solutely at tho door of the manager. His
greed overstepped Itself. Let us say, for
example, that Brown, the manager, had
White, tho great actor, under contract.
The play in which White starred was a
failure, and Brown hod tho star on hla
hands, drawing $500 a week. Rather than
stand the expense. Brown hires White
out to a moving picture producer at 1800,
making JIOO weekly profit for himself.
