11 ,u ALL-STAR BILL TO BE PRESENTED AT TH CHASE'S OPENING New Playhouse Nears Com pletion Fine Pipe Organ Installed. CLEAR DECKS FOR ADJOURNMENT DAY House and Senate Smoothing Out Obstacles Rapidly to , Wind Up SessionAgreements Reached on Many Bills. The theatrical beauty doctors are about through their preparation of tho new Chase Theater. The doors will bo thrown open for ltu debut next Monday afternoon at 1:20 p. m.. and the great pipe organ In tho promenado lounge will peal forth Its welcome. A program of populur selections, operatic airs, and classical offerings will be given at 1:30 p. m., 7:30 p. m. and during $ha Intermissions dhlly, throughout the season. Tho manage ment stutes that there are hundreds of choice locations remaining' for every performance, except Monday night, next week. First on the opening bill Is Mabel Taliaferro, former star of "Polly of the Circus" an other successes A tine act ing company supports her in a unique one-act comedy. Arthur Deagon, the musical revue star of the latest "Follies" company, will offer a wholly neW blend of songs, shut and r.tepa. "Ideal," an aquatic beauty, Is listed for a diving feature. Maud Lambert, with Eddie Foy in "Over the River." and Ernest R. Ball, tho composer, will join in a musical morceuu. Florence Modona and company In a rousing comedy sketch; Don Fulano, the best comic trick horse' on two con tinents, the Musical Gordon Highland ers, and other popular novelties, may be expected. The box office is open daily, except Sunday, from 8:30 a. m. until 8:30 p. m. The mutual love of a country boy and a city girl furnish the basis for that romantic comedy, "Peaceful Valley," which the Columbia Players will present next week at the Columbia Tn eater in a revival of the great Sol Smith Rus sell comedy. Fred G. Berger, for years the business manager, beloved, intimate, and lifelong associate of the wonderful comedian, will personally supervise the production and give to It all those delicate touches that Mr. Russell employed to accentuate the beautiful pathos and humor of the Dlay. "Peaceful Valley" Is from the pen of Edward E. Kidder. In It Edward H. Hcblns will play the role of the country fcoy, Hosea Howe. In the course of the play young Howe leaves the farm and obtains work as a wuiter in a summer resort hotel. There he meets a city girl, to be played .by Frances Nellson, and tho resultant love at iirst Bight paves the way for one of most humorously pathetic plays on the modern stage. If Mississippi always sends to the United States Senate men as lovable as the central character of "A Gentle man From Mississippi," which will bo presented for the lirst time at popular prices In Washington Monday night by the Poll Players, tho State will have reason to feel proud of its Senators. The official name of the gentleman for and frpm, Mississippi, is Senator "William H. Langdon, and every audi ence that sees him takes him to their hearts. And why should they not7 He is what fond women might call "an old dear," with a courtesy bred of chival ry and with a sense of humor that Is irresistible. in addition, he is as straight as a die and he sacrifices the fortune of his own children rather than support a bill that would put a dishonest dollar Into his pocket, although he needs the mon ey. He sticks to his guns and throws such a mighty bluff that It Is only ex plained by his own admission: "Why, poker was invented In Missis sippi, sir. ' Mark Kent will be seen In the role of Senator Langdon. A. H. Van Buren will play the newspaper man who be comes his private secretary and helps him fight a gang of grafters, and Miss Jewel will be seen as tho Senator's daughter with whom the young private secretary fulls In love. The strong and significant comedy drama, "The Volunteer Parson," by Edyth Totten, Is an. attractive play lit four acts, and not only furnishes an incident to an entertaining story well told, but shows a moral to the public that tho only way to success Is by the rishteous path. The plot Is clear, and one breathes the clean atmosphere of old "New England" throughout the entire play. "The Volunteer Parson" will be the cnenlng attraction of the new season at the Academy beginning Monday evening, with the usual matinees on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. The advance sale of seats and reser vations for the season started this morning at 0 o'clock. The sume scale of prices as heretofore will prevail. The manager of the' Cosmos Theater reports the engagement of Miss .Dora Lyon, an English opera star, in ah ex ceptional offering of song, and Stewart, Tayton & Co. in a sketch from "The Bells," of Schiller. Fosslta, who is heralded as "the king of plano-accordeon players." In his own special musical number: the Adams Brothers, blackface comedians. In a merrv roller-skating sketch, and Smith and Walley, in "The Volunteer Pianist," which is declared to be unique In its blend of clean comedy and catchy music, the supplemental features of the bill. The Pathe pictorial review of Import ant world events Is the headllner of the film features, all of which are guaran teed new and entertaining. The Cosmos Sunday concerts will In clude several acts of renned vaudeville and the usual orchestral program. The welcome accorded the Lyman H. Howe Travel Festival last Sunday even ing on the occasion of the return of that delightful form of diversion to the Columbia Theater, after an absence of nearly a year, has Induced the manage ment to add another complete change of program for next 'Sunday evening. On that occasion one of the best-bal-uuced programs of the entire series will be prexented. mude up of entertaining, instructive, and thrilling subjects. Notable anions the latter will be a terrifying hunt In the Jungles of Africa, where only the quick and unerring aim of the hunter saves hi in from the Jaws of the King of the Jungle. An automobile race on a half-mile track, many visits to beautiful and his toric points in this country and Europe, und a trip through the culver Military Academv, at Culver, Ind., one of the most efficient training schools In Amer ica, will be a in oner the other subjects. Manager Peck, of the new Gayety. has be en especially fortunate in securing as ' the opening attructlon for the fifth sea- i son of tho Ninth street house a company I of fifty funmakers known as "The I American Beauties. instead of one ftellur nunie In the cast there will be three, Cook and Lorenz, the famous fun makers of "The Yankee Girl" and "Mr. Hamlet of Broadway," and petite Helen Byron, the musical comedy celebrity who made "Sergeant Kitty" one of the Bub statlal hits of several seasons ago. "The American Beauties" will be seen In a tuneful burlesque culled "Lovet's Lane," which Is said to provide Messrs. Cook and Loienz unrivaled opportuni ties as mirth provokers, while Miss By ron will be allotted her share of such ong numbers. Two scenes from the Abbey," a reproduction of a famous Parisian cafe, are the "Ladies' Shop" and "Cabaret" gone mad. Adjournment plans took definite shape at tho Capitol today, with the smoothing out of a number of obstacles heretofore regarded, as postponing awlndup of the session. In. the opinion of Senate and House leaders only two things prevent nn ad journment by Saturday President Taft's veto of the legislative, or "budget," ap propriation bill, on account of the abol ishment of tho Commerce Court and the sevon-year tenure for civil service employes, and a possible fight over the conferees' report on the Panama canal bill. As agreed to In conference, tho provision for free tolls for American ships was stricken from tho bill, and this is expected again to precipitate a controversy on the floor In both houses. Released From Caucus. Agreement on the naval appropriation bill, lonf in dispute on account of the battleship provisions, was made certain by the action of tho House Domocratlc caucus In voting to release members from no battleship pledges. Adoption of an amendment authorizing ono super dreadnaught and acceptance by the Senate of this substitute for the two In the Senate bill, was part of tho com promise by which the House Democrats agreed to reverse themselves. The pension approrplatlon bill, held up because of the twenty-year light over abolition of the pension agencies, is ex pected to go through at once, in view of the Senate's asqulcscence in the abolition of the 'agencies. A perfunctory attempt to pass tho wool and steel bills over tho President's veto was scheduled for the Senate to- SUITS OBSERVE ANNIVERSARY OE ORDER'S FOUNDING day. That It will fall was admitted by Democratic leaders. The cotton bill, only slightly- amend ed by tho Senate, wag on tho Speaker's table in tho House today. It was bo Hcved that the House would not accept the Senate changes, including tho repeal if rin nt hn ntniul an reciDroclty agree ment except tho wood pulp and print paper section, ami mat ino measure would probably be hung up In conference. Disagreement in conference la expect ed to hold tho sugar tariff rovlslon bill over until next session, and an this measure. Is linked with the excise, or Income tax bill, tho latter measure will probably also bo held up. Will Be Smoothed Out. The army appropriation bill, vetoed in June because of the reorganization plan and the rider ousting Gen. Leonard Wood from his place as chief of staff, has already been passed by both Houses, and only remains to be smoothed out In conference. The Postofflco appropriation bill Is not expected by leaders to delay mat ters. The general belief was that the House would accept the Senate parcels post plan, and the compromise on the good roads co-operative scheme. Tho Senate adopted the Bourno zone parcels post In place of the Houbc pro vision for a limited experimental system, and provided-a commission to Investi gate tho' feasibility of co-operative work liy tho Federal Government with the States In good road building, as a sub stitute for the House provision appro priating about $30,000,000 annually for such co-operative building. A number of minor measures are ex pected to be pushed through both Houses under suspension of the rules permitting their expedition. Leaders nre llndlng It Increasingly difficult to hold a quoroum here In Washington, and the sentiment at both endB of the Capitol favors a speedy wlndup. Ignatius of Loyola and Six Associates Began Work In 1534. Without special service or ceremony, the members of the Jesuit Order of Catholic Priests, thirty, of whom are located In and about Washington at tho Georgetown University, Gonzaga Col lege, and other Inatltutlonf, aro quietly observing today the 37Sth annlversurv of the founding of their religious organi sation. Famous as nn order of teachers and scholars, the Jesuits are ono of the leading organizations of the Catholic Church, their -work extending to nearly evcrv section of tho globe. Preliminary steps in tho foundation of the order wcro taken on this dato in 1534 by Ignatius of Loyola and six associ ates Pierre Lo Fcvrc, a Savoyard: James Laynez, Francis Xavter, Alfonso Salmeron, and Nicholas Bobadtlla, Spaniards, and Simon Rodrlques, a Portuguese. These men took vows In the chapel of Montmnrtre, Paris, to make a pilgrim age to the Holy Land and devote them selves to the conversion of InfldelB, They went to Rome and laid tho preliminary sketch of the constitution of their pro posed order before Popo Paul III, who approved It In 1539. In founding the Jesuits, St. Ignatius is said to have in tended to offset the doctrines of Martin Luther. His object was lncieaso of de votion ' amung the adhorents of the church. Democrats Meet. NASHVILLE. Tenn., Aug. 15. Tennes see Democrats assembled In State con vention today to formulate a platform on which Benton McMlllIn, the victor In the recent primaries, will contest for the governorship at the November elec tion against Governor Hooper, who has been renominated by the Republicans. PRIVATE COMPANY TO SUPPLY ITER TO SILVER SPRINGS Failure to Gef Aid From 'Takoma Park Leads to -Decision. Attempt to get a permanent water supply from Takoma Park, Md., having been thwarted, residents of Silver Springs, Md., probably will Incorporate a company to , furnish water to this suburb of Washington. State Senator Blair Lee, J. H. Clsscl, the Silver Springs banker, and W, W. Jordan aro among tho prominent citizens of Sliver Springs who arq urging the incorpora tion of a company. Silver Springs will boIvq its sewage problem by tho agreement of the town council of Takoma Park to' connect a Bewer from Silver Springs with Its sys tem, but the water and sower commit tee of tho council has reported ugnlnct giving Silver Springs water. In view of tho none too great quantity of water available at tho present time at Takoma Park, and the undoubtedly increased de mands In the fututo. it would be highly Inadvisable, says tho council committee, to grant the Silver Springs request. Tho sewage part of tho propo sition, however, Is entirely approved. "If a private company to supply Sli ver Springs with water Is formed," suld Mr. CIssul today, "it will be with the hope that the county commissioners will take It over. No thought of nri- vute profit enters Into the projoct. What we seek to accomplish Is the fpr nishliig of sliver Springs with an ade quate and depndabIo water supply laj place of the wells and cisterns now per force in vogue." Motor Car Ablaze. Repairs nre being made today to the automobile of Charles J. Cassady. of 015 Twentieth street northwest, which was dumaged to the extent of 1100 by fire hist night. The blaze was caused by short circuiting of the magneto wires. T HRONG TRIES HER DAROW'S TO APPEAL TO JURORS Labor Lawyer Denounces .His Foes, and Alleges Persecution. LOS ANGELES. Col., Aug. 15. Another big crowd gathered In the cor ridor of tho Hall of Records today hop ing to hear the conclusion of Clarence S. Darrow's appeal to the Jury In his trial on chargo of Jury bribing.. When the court room opened tho bailiffs had difficulty restraining the crowd outside', and the room was quickly packed. Immediately Darrow resumed his argument, expecting to conclude it by the noon recess. District Attorney Fredericks will follow, and will occupy the rest of the day, and all of tomor row. This will put the caso In tho hands of the Jury Friday evening or Saturday morning, APPEAL TO GOVERNOR FOR DISARMED MINES Eight Thousand West ' Virginia Strikers March to State House In Charleston. CHARLESTON, W. Va., Aug; 15.-Th most remarkablelndustrlal spectacle ever seen In this State was presented today when 8,000 striking miners marched Into this city, many of them carrying rifles, which they stacked on the State house lawn, and then appealed to Governor Glasscock to compel tho coal operators to disarm tneir mininf? properties. Four companies of National Guard left tho strike district today, leaving four teen companies still on guard. Tho appeal to all coal miners In the Stato to Join tho strike in sympathy with the protest of the Paint Creek miners against tho guard system is bearing fruit, 2,000 miners having gone out In two days.

THE POWER EXCURSIONS EXCURSIONS To Pull Things YOUR Way rests in the force and attraction of your own personality. It depends upon Brain and Nerve strength, built and sustained by true food elements Nature provides for making vigor of mind. Physiologists know that the gray matter which composes nerves and brain is made up almost wholly of water, albumen and a vital tissue ' salt, known as Phosphate of Potash. Every-day food contains water and albumen in quantity to meet every need, but Phosphate of Potash, found plentifully in the hard outer shell of wheat and barley, is lacking in white bread, for white bread is made from white flour the inside of the grain which is deficient in Phosphate of Potash. Grape-Nuts FOOD builds brain as well as body, for it supplies valuable Phosphate of Potash the element necessary to brain nourishment and brain activity. Grape-Nuts is processed from selected parts of wheat and barley, twice baked to make an appetizing dish for breakfast, lunch or supper. A great many people who know have a dish of Grapes-Nuts at least once a day. "There's a Reason" SPECIAL WEEK-END TRIPS TO COLONIAL BEACH WASHINGTON'S ATLANTIC CITY STEAMER ST.
