,-.r - ; '-i' - - . THE WASHINGTON TBIES: THURSDAY; APRIL 10, 1913. " V h V JAV "GARDEN OP ALLAH" GORGEOUSLY STAGED Dramatization of Robert Hich ens' Novel To Be Seen at National Next Week. So gorgeously and yet so exquisitely toned are the scenes which have been arranged for the dramatization of Rob ert Hichens' novel, "The Garden of Allah," which comes to the National Theater next week, that the deep Im pression left by the sumptuous settings visualize the foreign land to a remark able degree. The story teaches a lesson of the only method of soul salvation for the be liever in the Roman Catholic Church. The ten scenes which follow one another erlly transplant one Into the atmos phere where the drama is worked out. A desert scene, a reproduction of the monastery, the street of "The Ouled Nails," with Its gayeties amonc the native Arabs the dance hall with its famous Arabian dancer. Faddma; the picturesque garden of Count Anteonl an oasis in the desertthe remarkable sandstorm on the desert, and. strain. th desert In the early dawn with its star- iii aicy. are scenes of great beauty. Rehearsals are progressing for the openlng performance of "Clothes" by the Columbia Players on"ilonday-even-lng at the Columbia Theater, and indi cations point to the fact that it will not only be the occasion for the biggest re ception ever accorded a dramatic organ ization in this city, but that the per formance will surpass the highest ex pectations of the company's many friends. The old favorites. Including practically a 1 of the men of last year's company,, have been besieged with the cordial greetings of friends, and, what is more to the point, they each have been .provided with parts In which they will appear to the best advantage. As to the newcomers, there is no question ing th -elements of popularity they possess. "Clothes" will serve to present each member of the company In an excellent part and undisguised, and, furthermore, clothe them in the, height of fashion and present them In surroundings that are both beautlful'and appropriate. Helen Keller's optimism Is but one of the many things to marvel at In this girl who has had so many barriers be tween her and the pleasures of the nor mal being. Optimism will be the key note of her lecture at the Belasco Theater Sunday evening, April 13. as it has been the keynote of- her whole life. From the blank darkness that has always surrounded her, she gives forth a message full of a sunshine which she In her blindness sees more fully than do many who have sight. It is a message addressed to those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not. for no one can hear Helen Keller's optimism and cheerful ness without being thankful for what are deemed to be ordinary faculties of life. The German student life play. "Old Heidelberg," will be the offering at Poll's next week, and will serve to In troduce to the Washington playpolng public the Poll Players' new leading man. Thurlow Bergen, an actor who comes to the Capital after having at tained unusual success both as a stock star and as a leading man. Mr. Bergen will be seen in the role of Karl, tho young German prince, who comes to Heidelberg as a diffident young student, but who soon enters into the university life with a. zest and a Joy which is In fectious. He falls In love with Kathie, the InnkeeDer"s daughter, and It is around this romance that the plot of the play develops. Far greater than was anticipated has been the success and consequently the public approval of the Edison talkinc Pic tures; so, commencing Monday, at 1 p.m.. . nose s win increase me number of the "talking movies,'" arrangements having been made for three: "The Temptation or Faust," a magnificent production v.ith noted hlstronlc players In scenes from Goethe's immortal romance "Jack's Jokes," a farcical comedy with minniui lines ana lunny complications, and a comic, musical, dramatic, and novel exposition of the scope of the wondeful Edison Invention. These plays will run throughout the week, supple mented by a large number of klnemn- color plays and photodramas, enabling- a cnaHge uiuij. Concert Today By the TJ. S.

George Randolph Chester's Wallingford stories are familiar to every reader of current magazines, and those who know the J. Rufus Wallingford of fiction will want to see him in real life surrounded by a score of clever Cohan characters. Busy at his old game of "trimming" the "boobs." Wallingford is the same genial, lovable rascal whose force ful and magnetic personality brings him the good things of life almost without the asking, that Chester de picts graphically, but into his life tomes a pure young girl, who makes him wish he was an honest man. The effort to keep straight in her ops is the means of his manufactur ing scheme, invented for the purpose ( fleecing the natives of a sleepy little Western city, but turning into i colossal money-making success.

Boston, Chicago, and Covent Garden Opera Companies, will appear here In Joint recital with Jaroslav Kocian. the young Bohemian violinist, at the Columbia Theater, Wed nesday, April lb. Jiosa uuizica is an ertlst of varied gifts, possessing first of all a rich, warm voice, and the spirited delivery that Instantly takes hold of an audience. When Mme.

Olltzka sings arias from every scnooi 01 opera; sue is a remarjcaoie Wagnerian Interpreter and will be In demand next season for the special Wagner festivals now being arranged to commemorate the Wagner centenary. jaroslav Kocian, the Bohemian violin ist, is one of the virtuosos of the day, But he is much more than a mere play er of difficult passages; Kocian is a thorough musician, an artist of feeling and of sane intellect. A pupil of the cele brated Sevclk of Prague, Kocian early won honors in his own country and then was received with overwhelming favor in other lands. Ha is one of the musi cians who stands highest In England.

That friend asked for the baggage as soon as the checks came but was Informed it was not there yet. Later the bill pre sented Mr. Estcourt showed that the baggage was there at the time. Bryan Gives Praise to The Pan-American Union The Wilson Administration wants Jo promote closer and more friendly re lations with Latin America, according to Secretary of State Ilryan. who, as chairman ex officio, presided over the first meeting of the Pan-American Union governing board. He praised the union as a strong factor in the work of developing good feeling be tween this country and the countries of tho South. Ambassador da Gama, of Brazil, welcomed Mr. Bryan, and Minister Calderon, of Bolivia, presented a reso lution of thanks for Mr. Bryan's "friendly and sympathetic Hcntlments." Practically all the Central and South American diplomats were present. As the powerful church prelate who reigned over France and Its King. Robert Mantell In the leading role of Lord Lytton's drama "Richelieu," por trays with fine naturalness the subtlety, strength and sympathy of that cruel character, whose Iron hand domineer ed even in its declining days. That the great drama written seventy years ago is worthy of preservation for the modern stage was amply proven yes terday by the enthusiasm and interest with which it was received at the Be lasco. Mr. Mantell's impersonation of thet ot tering figure of Richelieu depicted faith fully the extraordinary power which the famous cardinal exerted In his time. There was majesty and awe In his depiction of the character and there was genuine power and sincerity in the characteristic moment of the drama, such as that in which the magic circle of the church is drawn about the tem- puraniy imien cardinal's ward. Fritz Lleber. In the youthful and ro mantic role of Adrian de Mauprat, his a role admirably suited to his per sonality. L'Estrange Mlllman Is the same King Louis one would expect to see after reading the play or that part of French history which deals with his reign. He portrays the effeminate, overcultured and effete monarch with regal dignity and cnsouclance. Miss Scott made a momentary, but welcome appearance as Marian De Lorma. Miss Rockwell, who was a charming and competent Julie, ward of the cardinal, acted the role with a sincerity which aided materially in making the presentation an extraordin ary one. Mr. Mantell and his company gave a presentation of "Othello" lat niht ho. fore a packed house, which proves that his popularity will continue through the tveek, if box office receipts may be taken as an Indication. Mr. Mantell's uuieuo was entrancing and dramatic Fritz Lelber's Iago imparted a type of viuain suoueiy Deyond description. Much of the credit of the performance should go to Brigham Royce, as the arunxen wassio. "Hamlet" will be given by Mr. Man tell and his company tonight. Dairymen Must Obtain Health Board Permits Dairymen who shin to Washington from neighboring States milk and cream which is made Into butter must obtain permits from the Health Department, according to an opinion of Corporation Counsel Thomas made public yesterday. The ruling was asked for by Health Officer W. C. Woodward, who reported to the Commissioners that one Irm In the District is In dally receipt of 600 to 800 gallons of cream from producers In adjoining States, few of whom have ap plied for permits to send their products into this Jurisdiction. The cream Is manufactured into but ter at the firm's address. The opinion of the Corporation Counsel Is that the manufacture of the cream into butter does not absolve the shippers from compliance with the regulations govern ing the shipment of milk and cream Into the District. Tli Health nm,. was directed by the Commissioners to- umr 10 eniorce me regulations as con- oiruea Dy me corporation counsel.

President Wilson Is confronted with the question of whether he Is going to sanction the principle of nomination of Federal officials by the primary method or whether he will turn this down in favor of the old order of things, where by Federal patronage is dictated by a few political leaders. The question has been put up to the President In connection with South Da kota patronage. Thomas Ayres, of Pierre, and R. E. Clark, of Huron, are here to see the President on this sub ject. They have already laid a written statement of their case before the Ex ecutive and will see him Saturday when the President will hear them. Under the Soi'th Dakota law, the po litical leaders and members of the Senate and House of the dominant party can no longer dictate the Fed eral patronage. They have nothing to do with It. The postoffice primary sys tem is provided for. As to other Fed eral officers, they are nominated by the State committee which is an elec tive body made up of a number from each county. Control With Voters. Under this sjEtem. the voters of the party that controls the national Gov ernment in theory at least, have the control of the Federal patronage for South Dakota In their hands. The Congressman has his wings clipped as a dispenser of Federal patronage nor can a small clique of politicians con trol. Tho courts In South Dakota have for the time being blocked the operation of the law in that State. However, the people there have declared for tho pol icy and will in due time "put it Into force. In the meantime, a .small group of Democratic politicians, consisting of State Chairman Coffey, National Com mitteeman Taubman and Ed. S. John son, who was Democratic candidate for governor last fall, have framed up a list of recommendations for various offices. Including postofflces and more Important places, and are trying to get this list appointed. Leaders Are Peeved. On the other hand, members of tho State committee have met anri decided on recommendations. And the town of Ipswich had gone ahead and held a postoffice primary. Postmaster Burle son Is face to faco with the question of whether he will respect the postoffice primary or select the candidate of the "organization." A similar question confronts Attorney General McRey nolds. The progressive Democrats of South Dakota say this is a matter of policy, not personalities, and that If the Presi dent turns down the primary Idea In favor of the coterlo of political leaders headed by Johnson, then the Demo cratic party might as well quit business In their neck of the woods. Thous ands of them will floock to the Bull Moose. It Is asserted, unless what they call the "open door" method of select ing federal patronage Is observed. It la believed President Wilson will discern the Importance of the question put up to him and solve It In favor of the principle of the South Dakota law. Offers to Substantiate Charge Against Wilson In an effort to back up the Rojas charges against Ambassador Wilson, Roque Gonzales Garza, former member of the Madero chamber of deputies, is planning an early meeting with Secre tary of State Bryan. Garza, who is now United States agent of the constitu tionalists' revolution, claims that he can submit proofs of the Rojas charges. These charges claim that Wilson acted against the Madero government, and was morally responsible for the killing of Madero and Suarez. Garza Is now at El Paso, Texas., and plans to come here soon. France Must Pay. PARIS. April 10. The French cus toms department was ordered by court to pay $7,000 to two men of Dunkirk, falsely accused of smug gling, because tobacco seized by the government actually was In Belgian waters. ABOUT CONTRACTS POWERS AT WORK First Important Decision of New Attorney General to Change Supply Methods. A vigorous fight by all of the interests that have warred continuously over the question of the manner of letting con tracts for tho Government supplies is Impending. The fight was precipitated by one of the first important actions taken bv Attorney General McReynolds, In an upiiuun given 10 me new Secretary of the Treasury, in which he reverses the ruling of Attorney General Wlckcrsham with respect to the manner of purchase of Government supplies. Attorney General McReynolds holds that the Secretary of the Treasury has not the absolute richt to mntM( fnr all supplies for all the executive branches of the Government. This de cision, 11 is expectea. will throw the ex isting system into the air. Congress three years ago created a general supply committee, to act under the Secretary of the Treasury. Th com mittee was organized, and through this committee the Secretary of the Treasury tuuuuwieu mr iui supplies, uiaaers pro tested against awards, and many Gov-1 ernment officers sought to buy outside 1 of the committee's awards In vain Under the new decision, a readjust ment will be necessary. It Is said. Just ' wnai eneci ine decision will have on standing contracts, signed by Secretary aiacveagn, naa noi oeen acierminea.
