GLEN ECHO'S LID OFF
STRENUOUS DIVERSIONS FOLLOW
Speeding Autos and a Rough House
Enliven the Evening Over the
Glen Echo Is In the hands of the enemy,
and all because Mr. Collins Is no longer on
the Job. The news that Col-Ins had suddenly
become an ex-marshal of the Montgomery
county Jurisdiction by the simple,
yet unexpected action of presenting his
resignation to Mayor Garrett seems to have
spread like wildfire, whatever that Is, and
all Washinztonians out for a time last night
evidently thought it incumbent upon thern
to celebrate the fact that no one was Bitting
on the Glen Echo lid.
Automobillsta without number piloted
their cars out Conduit road way, and if any
of Glen Echo's auto rules and regulations
escaped being fractured it was because they
were away on vacation. At the same time
several unsatisfactory fortunes were told
in the gipsy camp at Glen Echo Park, and
a rough house started there by half a dozen
young Washington men extended to the
miniature railway and eventually Involved
almost the entire resort. Deputy Marshal
Shaw, who has temporarily inherited exMarshal
Collins' footwear, was fairly dis

dust kicked up by flying automobiles.
Deputy Shaw in Action.
Before the fuss in the park had proceeded
very far some of Glen Echo's citizens undertook
to uphold the honor of the jurisdiction,
and from common or garden rough
housing the affair took on the semblance
of a battle royal. Deputy Shaw finally
emerged from the melee with the fingers of
the law firmly inserted in the buttonholes
of the coat of ueorge W. O'Brien, chairman
of the l;iw anil order committee of
Glen Echo. Ernest D. Houghton, a painter,
was also caught In the dragnet. The official
lead pencil Is also said to have been
brought into play when Deputy Shaw made
notes of the names of other combatants.
Each of these names will be written into
the blank space on a warrant by Mayor
Garrett this afternoon. and arrests by
wholesale are expected to follow.
And ex-Marshal Collins is reported to be
wearing a semi-cynical smile and silently
watching the devastation which has fallen
upon Glen Echo. Mayor Garrett has sev- ,
eral likely candidates in view, but he has
not yet selected a successor for the militant

BATES TO BLUEMONT.
Railway Explains Why Sunday Special
A somewhat erroneous report was current
yesterday about the Southern railway having
withdrawn the usual week-end rates to
Bluemont and other nearby Virginia points.
The railway officials say the Saturday and
Sunday tickets to Bluemont, $2, and to
Leesburg, $1.45, are still on sale and will
continue throughout the summer until October
6. These tickets are good to return
until Monday. The only tickets not on
sale this summer that were sold last season
are the Sunday only tickets at $1 from
Washington to Bluemont and back, and for
which the road ran a special Sunday train.
The ministers of Virginia last winter,
through a body known as the interdenominational
committee, took up with the railroads
of the state the matter of running
both freight and passenger trains on Sundays,
and after a conference between the
committee and the presidents of the railroads
it was agreed to stop selling all the
and also not to run any more Sunday excursion
In doing this the railroads are cut out of
a good many dollars which they have
easily heretofore taken . in, but entered
Into the agreement rather than run any
chances of having the Virginia legislature
make more restrictive Sunday laws which
would seriously Interfere with the running
on Sunday or rrult and vegetable trains

The closing week of the summer stock
company at the Columbia Theater is
marked by the presentation of Arthur W.
Tinero's sparkling comedy "The Amaions"
In three acts. The play is light and sumrr.rtriflh

tropical weather. Notwithstanding the oppressiveness
of the atmosphere on the outside
last night, the interior of the popular
playhouse, wltli its electric fans and wide
open doors and windows, was as cool and
pleasant as a sylvan retreat.
"The Amazons" Is described as one of
Pinero's cleverest plays, and as presented
by tliu Columbia Theater Company is refreshingly
enjoyable. It was originally
produced in this country by Daniel Froh
man, niiu ucui van niiu ibbuvi a* vlng
In the roles which were last night Interpreted
by Miss Charlotte Walker and
Miss Hilda Spong, with Miss Fanny Hartz
as a very acceptable third. The theme of
the comedy deals with Miriam, Marchioness
of Castlejordan, an English lady,
who, possessed of three daughters, is constantly
lamenting because she has not a
son. She wishes the girls were boys, and
bemoans the fact that her home, Overcote
Park, is an Adamless Eden.
The three daughters are reared mannishly,
and attired in bloomer costume
they are required to conduct themselves
like young men of that period. They address
each other its "fellows" nrul "hrnther "
and do all manner of male stunts. Including
hunting-, boxing, gymnastics and
similar things. Finally, they come in
contact with real men and are brought to
a realization that they are, after all, real
women instead of make-believe youths.
The inevitable occurs when they fall In
love with the men. The action of the
play Is marked by a number of clever
and amusing situations throughout, causing
hearty peals of laughter from the
audience, and several curtain calls.
The three Amazon daughters are portrayed
by Misses Charlotte Walker. Hilda
Spong and Fanny Hartz. Miss Walker
save a rrfost pleasing interpretation of
Lady Tom, and by her natural vivacity
and charming personality completely won
the audience. Miss Spong, in the more
sentimental part of Lady Noel, the eldest
son-daughter, gave a splendid portrayal
of the part, sustaining her reputation
as an emotional actress. Miss
Hartz as Lady Bill, the youngest of the
Amazons, gave a very clever presentation
of the character, and won merited
u^iuuac. waxier nowe, <i H Anure, Louni
de Grival, an erratic and comical Frenchman,
was clearly the comedian of the
play, and caused much amusement by
his twisting of English proverbs and
Jiis osculatory demonstrations toward hi9
companion, Galfred, Earl of Tweenways,
which part was cleverly taken by Guy
Coombs. Herbert McKenzle made an acceptable
Harrington, Viscount bitterly,
and George Gaston gave a good portrayal
of the old-fashioned English clergyman.
Miss Kffle Darling as the disappointed
mamma of the trio of Amazons gave a
clever and pleasing interpretation of that
part. Others in the cast were Nick Judels,
Percy F. Leach and Guy Nichols.
"The Bohemian Girl" was presented at
the New National Theater last evening before
a well-filled house, which, provided
with dainty Japanese fans at the entrance,
presented a striking effect during the evening
as the fans kept time to some of the
old favorites of Balfe's tunfeul opera.
Nothing can dim the attractiveness of the
songs which charmed the mothers of the
present generation In their school days.
"The Heart Bowed Down," "I Dreamt
That I Dwelt In Marble Halls," "The Fair
Land of Poland," are part of the musical
heritage of the times, and a delight to hear
when given with appreciation and color.
Individually the opera last evening was
well rendered, though the chorus was somewhat
attenuated in tone. While in a measure
not up to the standard of former efforts,
possibly due to climatic conditions,
the company did fairly well, and it would
be a mistake to overlook the Gypsy Queen
of Edith Bradford, or the Count Arnheim
of Harry Luckstone, both of whom gave a
quality of tone and a color to their principal
arias which was promptly felt and
applauded. "The Heart Bowed Down"
number was given with particularly fine expression,
which awakened recollections of
other opera singers of note that made
Balfe'R work famous.

the style of the modern comic opera pro.

Devilshoof, while amusing, was hardly irt
keeping with the period. However, the
opera on the whole was very acceptably
rendered, considering that the time of its
preparation was confined to one week, and
that many difficulties, peculiar only to summer
stock companies, had to be overcome.
The company is to be congratulated in
providing an interesting interpretation of
the opera so notably free from many first
iligill. Ultv. HVkJ.
For the last production of his summer
season at the Belasco Mr. Edwin Arden is
presenting "Capt. Swift," a drama t>y C.
Haddon Chambers. Despite the fact that
yesterday was the hottest day this summer
last night's audience was surprisingly large
and enthusiastic. Throughout the season Mr.
Araen nas selected anu successiuuy piayeu
roles which are inextricably associated with
famous players. However, his portrayals
have all been original, and his rendition of
Captain Swift la quite distinct, though not
disparagingly, from that of the late Mr.
The play is one of the familiar type of
English dramas, making its principal character
an exalted thief of the "never, never
land," and somewhat lacking In comedy
situations. The plot, however, is excellently
Alice Butler as Mrs. Seaibrook shared the
honors of the evening. Her role was emotional
and she played it in a subdued and
graceful manner which was very convincing.
The audience was agreeably surprised
by the appearance of Catherine Laughran,
a resident of Washington, who is speedily
finding a place among the most accomplished
actresses of the day. As Stella
Darblsher and Mabel Seabrook Amy Ricard
and Jessie Ulendlnning were all that could
Mr. Edward Ellis, in the many plays produced
by this stock company, has developed
a high standard of excellence and versatility,
but at no time lias he displayed a more
finished bit of work than his portrayal of
Mr. Gardiner in the production at hand.

characteristic of "first nights," and undoubtedly
by the end of the week Mr. Arden will
take his leave of Washington with many
happy recollections of a most profitable

assurances for success from old and new

The new drug law which went Into jftect
about one year ago does not allow th s sale
of laudanum without the prescrlptlor of a
licensed and practicing physician or d ;ntlst.
It Is alleged that Mueir went to th? dmr i
store in Question, without such a priscription,
and purchased a bottle of the diug.
Mr. Walters, the druggist, claims, however,
that Mugjr stated that he wan :ed the
drug for use as a llnament, and that he
sold it strictly for that purpose, riarklnf;
the bottle "for external use only." Under
the law a druggrist is allowed to sel laudanum,
among other drugs, as an ointment or
linament, and Mr. Walters claims that tc
is acting under that exception in the law.
Prosecuting Attorney Fugh questions the
use of.pure laucanum as a liniment, and he
has referred the matter to the h'l<h officer.

Erection of Chapel at Government

The proposed erection of the n?tw assembly
hall or chajiel building at the Government
Hospital for the Insane has been
abandoned for this year at least, according
to Dr. Maurice J. Stack, who Is acting superintendent
of that Institution luring the
absence of Dr. White. The reason for the
abandonment of the construction was stated
to be because wheref3 Congress epproI
priated $75,00<J for the new building, the
luwcBi uiu iur me worn was more tlian
It Is proposed that the structure shall accommodate
!KH> iiersons, and It was stated
that to attempt to erect the building; with
a sum of $25,000 short of the Towest bid
would be to erect an unsatisfac:ory edifice
without the flrepi oofing feature. It Is therefore
the Intention of the authoiitles to go
back to Congress next winter and ask for
an additional appropriation to ccver the deficiency.
It was intended that the wsrk should
have been commenced July 1, and the plans
had been completed. In the meantime the
