MARKED By TABLET
Patriotic Addresses Delivered
Yesterday at the Unveiling
Standing in the shadow of the Old Capits
prison, with its war-time memories.
William V. Cox, vice chairman of the
permanent committee on marking points
of interest in the District of Columbia,
yesterday afternoon delivered an address
teeming with patriotism. Exercises were
held beginning at 5:30 o'clock incident to
the unveiling of a bronse tablet on the
former prison house.
The ancient structure/ now converted
into a modern dwelling, is at the corner
of 1st and A streets northeast, facing
the Capitol park It stands upon a grassy
terrace and is shaded by great trees, in
striking contrast with its gloom and
despair in the sixties.
The program was opened with an invocation
by Rev. John Reid Shannon, pastor
of the Metropolitan M. B. Church.
Mr. Cox rave a historv of the move
ment for marking historic points In the
District and paid a high tribute to William
P. Van Wickle. chairman of the
committee on mgrklng sites: to Henry
B. F. Macfarland. District Commissioner
Cuno H. Rudolph. Frederick D.
Owen and other working members of
the committee. He said it is the hope
of the committee that the tablets of
bronze will preserve for all time the
memory of persons distinguished in the ]
upbuilding of the republic and its Capital
Unveiled by Miss Cox.
The tablet was unveiled by Miss
Hazel Van Zandt Cox, a great-greatgranddaughter
of Gen. James Cox, a
member of Congress from New Jersey
in 1809, and who lived at Long's Hotel
before it became the capitol.
In hts address Col. Thomas S. Hopkins,
former commander of the Department
of the Potomac, G. A. R.. gave a
resume of the history of the Old Capitol
He said the structure was erected prior
to WOO by George Walker and was used
for hotel purposes by William Tunnicliff
and Pontius D. Stelle. and later by William
Long, down to the present owners.
"After the destruction of the Capitol
in 1814 by the British soldiers," he said,
"Daniel Carroll of Duddlngton, Thomas
Law and Rev. Dr. Frederick May secured
the property and offered It to Congress.
and it was thus occupied from
1815 to 1819. On March 4. 1817, Mr. Monroe
was inaugurated on a platform built i
over the front door. The courts occupied
it until 1824. For long time thereafter ,
it was occupied as a boarding house, and '
was patronized mostly by members of
Congress for the south. John C. Calhoun
lived and died here March 81. 185t>. i
"At the beginning of the civil yrar it <
was used as a military prison. Capt.
Wirx of AndersonvUle was hanged on Its
grounds. Belle Xoyd, the noted Con- 1
federate spy, was confined within Its '
walls. Many noted men were seized and
thrust into It by military authority. |
Later George T. Brown, sergeant-at-arms ;
of the 8enate. bought the property and :
converted It into three residences, which 1
were occupied by Senator Lyman Trum
bull of Illinois. Stephen J. Field, justice
of the Supreme Court of the Ufilted '
States, and by Mr. Brown. <
What Walls Have Seen.
"If these old walls, erected more than
a century ago, could only speak, what i
tales they could tell. They saw the birth
of a great city, brought forth in a wilderness,
and they have seen develop year
by year into maturity and into the city
"They saw the walls of the old Capitol
rise, and in 1814 they saw the red-coated
British troops, flushed with their victory
at Blademburg, march across this plaza,
apply the torch to the Capitol and reduce
it to ashes. They sheltered the Congress
until the new Capitol, built upon the
ashes of the old, became habitable. They
have seen every inauguration since Congress
first met here, and they saw Mr.
Lincoln stand upon those eastern steps
over there March 4, 1881, and they heard
the mutterings of that awful storm, so
soon to burst, whose thunderbolts carried
death and destruction into every part of
the north and the south.
"They saw him again on Mafch 4, 1884,
at his second inaugural, when his gentle ]
soul had been torn by the herrors of war,
and when his sad features betrayed his
mental anguish under the tremendous
burdens ana responsibilities 01 nis omcial <
"And again, in April, 1885, they saw j
his dead body borne up those steps and ]
into the rotunda, while the nation wept.
"They saw this fair city turned into j
a military camp, the writ of habeas corpus
suspended, the enemy thundering at j
its very gates, while, at intervals, from
afar could be heard the guns at Bull
Kun. Frederickburg, Antletam and Fort
Joy Turned to Grief.
"They saw the National Capital, celebrating
with unrestrained joy. ablaze
with illuminations. Intoxicated with victory.
changed in a day to a crape-hung
city, prostrated with grief over the death
of the great but gentle sout whose name
and fame will never die. 1
"They have seen, thanks be ikUo God.
a reunited country; have seen it grow i
and take its place among the great na- j
tlons of the earth, a mighty people,
whose God is. the Lord, and whose car- 1
dinal principles are liberty, equality and 1
"And as these walls have looked down <
upon a century pregnant with mighty j
events, world wide in their far-reaching j
effects, a century that has accomplished <
more for the uplifting of humanity and
the glory of God than any Ave centuries
that have ever preceded it, it is fitting 1
and proper that we should on this, the '
134th anniversary of the signing of the
Declaration of Independence, place upon
them an enduring tablet, forever marking
a spot of such deep historic interest."

Schooner Anderson to Be Dismantled
and Made Into Houseboat.
The two-muted bay schooner N. B.
Anderson has carried her last cargo on
Chesapeake bay and having outlived
her usefulness is to be dismantled and
the hull converted into a houseboat.
The vessel for over thirty years had
been in active service on the bay
and its tributaries, but a few weeks
ago she was caught in a heavy
gale on the bay and was dismasted.
She was Anally towed into the
Great Wicomico river for harbor and
after looking her ? over there Capt.
Elijah Boston, her owner and master,
decided that she was not worth repairing
and to abandon her.
The old craft has been stripped of
everything of value and the hull will
probably be broken up to get at the
metal in it, if she is not found
available for use as a houseboat.
The old schooner has since the day she
was launched always been a moneymaker,
but even money-makers have
to die. The- vessel was build in Matthews
county. Vs., in 1S71. and registered
forty-three tons. She was sixtyAve
feet eight inches long and had
ample beam to give her stability on the
water without detracting from her sailing
qualities. _ (

Dr. S. H. Woodrow, pastor of the First
Congregational Church, who was a passenger
on the White Star liner Baltic,
which was run into by a tramp oil tank
steamer about midnight Thursday, reached
the city yesterday afternoon.
Asked by a Star, reporter of the particulars
of the accident. Dr. Woodrow said:
"It occurred about a quarter of 12

When we reached the deck they were

assured us everything was all right. We
were delayed about a couple of hours
and then went back to our bertha We
were informed the other steamer had
sailed on her way.
"We did not know it that night, but
the next day we found that our vessel
had a hole about six or eight feet square
stove in her how and a part of the prow
of the other vessel was carried away.
Stone Wall Around Hole.
"The carpenters of our ship soon had a
wall built around the hole In our vessel,
and the intermediate space was filled
with cemetrt, thus practically making a
stone wall. Thursday had been a foggy
day, but Friday was clear and bright.
Still, we were somewhat nervous after
"One of our boats, I think, brought

Belasco Open-Air Theater.
Washington had a decided and a delightful
innovation in theatricals last
evening, when Manager L. Stoddard Taylor
presented the Greet Players in an
al fresco performance on the roof of the
Belasco Theater. The success of the enterprise
was so beyond question that it
is more than likely local play lovers may
depend upon its continuance for some
time to come. The wonder is that the
experiment has not been tried before.
The roof of the theater is admirably
adapted for the purpose, and the cool
breezes which swept over it lait night
would have made it enjoyable even'without
the pleasing performance of W. S.
Gilbert's fanstatic comedy, "The Palace
of Truth," by the Greet Players. But
t tl A nlar itealf

to the attraction. All the players seemed
particularly fit for their roles, and the
spirit of laughter engendered by the
bright H/ies and laughable situations of
the play made the occasion unusually
"The Palace of Truth" is written in
Gilbert's happiest vein. Its keen satire
is handled with great delicacy apd yet
strikes home with unerring precision.
It gives an idea of what would happen
if some folks had to tell the truth.
King Phanor. a gay Lothario, has a
palace of magic. Every one who enters
its portals is obliged to tell the truth,
but strange to say, is not really aware
of what he or she does tell. The possibilities
of such a plot are almost illimitable,
and that master of comic satire.
Gilbert, makes the most of them.
Mr. Greet gave a jolly impersonation
of King Phanor and J. Sayer Crawley
and Percival Seymour laughable and
adequate portrayals of the roles of
Chrysal and Zoram, two obsequious, flattering
courtiers who are made to appear
in their true light in the magic
palace, become involved in a duel which
neither wants to fight and are finallyrescued
from the situation by Gelanor,
the major domo of the castle, who satisfies
their honor by explaining that
w-hlle they thought what they said to
each other, they really did not mean
to say it.
Grace Halsey Mills made an imposing
and impressive, if jealous, Queen Altemire.
The gentle charm of the Vivian
sisters, Violet and Ruth, was delightfully
developed in the roles of Princess
Zeolide, the king's daughter, deeplyenamoured
of Prince Philamir. and
Azema, a deliciously artful coque^e, respectively.
Ethel Van der Veer, as
Mirza. devotedly attached to the princess,
but In love with the prince, was
very good and won her meed of applause.
Blanche Tolmie's Palmis was satisfactory
and Charles Hopkins' Arlstaeus quite
adequate. Mr. Yeadeker will improve
his portrayal of the role of Prince Philamir
if he will inject into it what he so
earnestly begs of the princess In the earlystage
of the play, more heart, more soul
and humanity a bit more intense than he
imparted to it last evening. But the play
as a whole was thoroughly enjoyed by the
large audience, which mingled a great
deal of applause with its laughter
throughout the evening.
The roof performance of "The Palace
of Truth" will be repeated each evening
throughout the week, if the weather is
fair. The auditorium of the theater will
be used in case of rain and for the matinees.
The resounding kiss, which re-echoed
through the theater, announcing the
capitulation of "Miss Hobbs," for the
time being Julia Dean, to the romance
of life and the right man, sent a thrill
through the audience at the Columbia
Theater and started a roar of applause
that seemed reluctant to die down. This
happened at both the afternoon and even- i
ing performances yesterday, when the i
Columbia Players presented Jerome K.
Jerome's clever coitiedy based upon a <
young woman's misconception of the
realities of life and her mistaken effort ]
to change things for the better.
"Miss Hobba" is a young woman who
has been imbued with anti-matrimonial
ideas by an aunt who has had three hus- <
bands and buried them all. She has a 1
very poor opinion of men, and her pecu- 1
liam ideas get to work in an effort to <
rescue Beula, .the young wife of Perdval i
Kingsearl, from a husband who loves |
her, and Miss Milllcent Farley, a young
girl, from George Jcssup, to whom she
is not only engaged, but deeply attached.
Her plot fails because she mistakes
Wolff Kingsearl for the wicked husband. <
Wolff is a friend of Percival. He has
been long abroad, is a man of the world
and the Impression is given that he
knows how to woo a woman. Miss Hobbs
coquettes with him. pretending she is a
maid servant, and invites him to call at
her home, intending when he is in the
depths of his lovemaking to her to introduce
the young wife and thus expose the
husband. The denouement is very laughable
and very disquieting to Miss Hobbs.
Wolff Kingsearl has really faileri in love
with her, though, and starts about his
way to win her. She has been described
to him as a "terrible sort of woman." i
Percival wants to wager a dinner at ]
Delnvonico's that he cannot win a kiss '
from *her in six months. Wolff at first
declines, but later, after he has seen the
attractive young woman, he makes the
wager and notes in his memorandum
book that he will kiss her in one month
or forfeit the dinner. "Miss Hobbs" sees
the book. The kiss is the climax of the
last act and the play and tells how successful
Julia Dean, aside from her own personality
and judging her purely by her art.

played the part just as one would imagine
a young woman of her'accomplishments
would act In ireal life under the circumstances.
That it was eminently satisfactory
the applause of the big audiences
told over and over again.
Paul McAllister, as Wolff Kingsearl,
easily shared the honors with Miss Dean.
He was natural and effective at all
stages of the play, and altogether gave
one of his most satisfactory performances
since he has been a member of the com- '
Emilie Melville has deservedly won her
way into the hearts of the" Columbia
patrons. No matter in what part she is 1
cast, she seems to take it right over the i
footlights to each individual in the audi- <
ence and make him or her thoroughly
sympathetic with her. Her role in "Miss
Hobbs" is that of Aunt Susan, one of
those delightfully human old1 ladies who !
knows the world and with all her heart
aims to keep it out of trouble. Mi&s
Melville shone in it as a bright particular
Everett Butterfleld. the young husband,
and Florence Huntington, the young wife,
had but little to do, except to show how
billing and cooing could be successfully
carried on, though married. Miss Huntington
also rose equal to the occasion
when she realized Miss Hobbs' mistake.
She wan quite the "real thing" when she
flew to the defense of her husband as
well as when she explained to Miss
Hobbs how things had happened. Phyllis
Sherwood as Milllcent Farley, made a
very natural as well as a very charming 1
young sweetheart for Frank Shannon, the 1
other two "victims" of Miss Hobbs' mis- '
taken theories. Walter Wilson, as cap- ,
tain of the yacht; Arthur Ritchie, as 1
Charles, the butler, and Pearl Havlin, as i
the maid, were fully adequate to the re- <
quirements of the minor roles.
Marjorie Bonner and William Powers,
late of the Follies of 1908, head the
list of attractions at the Majestic Theater
this week with an act that consists
of comedy, singing and dancing. It was
well received by audiences that filled
every available seat in the house at both
the afternoon and evening performances.
Another good act was presented by Caroline
Franklin and company in a bright
comedy entitled "A I.ength of the Ring."

The Eto Japs, a clever aggregation of (
(apanese specialists, headed the bill and t
won hearty applause for their excellent
performance. Thv London quartet were

WILLIAM TYLER PAGE LAUDS
Defines Function of Newspapers.
Denounces Press of Yellow Hue. ,
Objects to Muckraking.
William Tyler Page delivered the principal
address at the celebration of the
Fourth of July at Friendship, Md., last
The celebration was a neighborhood affair,
conducted by the citizens of the
community. National patriotism was
expressed in speech and song, fireworks
and stirring bugle calls.
Patriotism of Forefathers.
Mr. Page outlined some interesting
facts in connection with the early history
of the colonies' Independence and
the signing of the Declaration, which is
celebrated as the great American birthday.
He pointed out that in the first
days of the republic patriotism was an <
elemental part of the makeup of all .
public men. and that it had been handed ]
down as an heirloom to the men of the
However, he said, there is an evident :
desire on the part of the unthinking
public to decry the efforts of statesmen
at the present time. He made an ap- :
peal for a safer and saner manner of
criticising public actions. ,
Criticism of Public Press.
He said, in part: ,
"We hear much these days of the muck ,
raker, the office seeker, the grafter and
the demagogue. Unhappily, we shall '
hear more* of them so long as people are
prone to patronize them.
"The people no longer judge for themselves
or form Dublie CDinion. Their i
judgment is second hand and their opin- ,
ions reflected opinions. t
"Vox populi, vox Dei never contained (
less of truth than at this moment. For
the voice of certain metropolitan news- '
papers and magazines of saffron hue is
the voice of the mass of unthinking and
unreasoning people. Whatever of public i
sentiment exists is but reflex sentiment. <
Great Function of Newspaper.
"The country newspapers and many
dallies in the large cities- perform great
public service in furnishing information
and news. Inasmuch as newspapers are
read by millions of people to the exclu- J
sion of standard books great care should ]
be exercised that wholesome matter be J
published and that only the truth be
"Henry Wattarton, one of the country's
greatest journalists, twice within 5
this year has decried the use of news- j
papers as detective agencies. The ]
proper function of the reporter, he said, <
was to gather news?actual facts?and
not to spy into the family history of
people, nor to express an opinion in the .
news columns. 1
"The press is a very necessary and
useful institution, and the world would 1
be benighted without it. But its aim 4
should be to publish legitimate news
and to reflect public sentiment.
"Too often theorists and doctrinaires
control its policies. Then, again, reck- ,
less and oftentimes unjust criticism of ,
public men has led to belitting the ser- ,
vants of the people. ,
"Never in the history of Congreso
were its members freer from the taint
of corruption. And never. I daresay,
from close observation, did men in- ]
trusted with the legislation of ninety <
odd millions of people perform their ]
duties more conscientiously, some at
great sacrifice of time and money."
Committee in Charge.
The committee in charge consisted of
John R. Swan-ton, Henry Latterner, C. W.
Rlppey and Grant Leet. The singing of
"America" and "The Star Spangled Banner"
was by a chorus of children. The
Declaration of Independence was read by
A. E. Shoemaker.
Refreshments were served under the
care of a committee composed of Mrs.
Rippey, Mrs. White and Mrs. Bradt. The
bugle calls were given by William Collins.

WOULD ABOLISH SENATE.
Maryland Sociologists Favor Negro
and Woman Franchise.
After cleaning up some routine business
late yesterday afternoon the Maryland
and District socialist congress, which 1
had been in session for two days at
Pythian Temple, adjourned. 1
The resolution adopted by the congress
which caused the most comment was one ]
urging the abolition of the United States
Senate. Another, which favored negro
franchise, was adopted after much discussion.
Still another favored woman
The resolution advocating the abolishment
of the United States Senate is in I
