THE -WASHINGTON TLMES. MONDAY. APRIL 25), 1H18. 'mm nw 'Pi immrvmi ;T F i Showing At the Capital Theaters i m PLANS SMPUFY TO BILL PAYING! Br hill rnu'E. Ben L. Prince, collector of taxes, has devised new plans for gathering the approximately 7.000,000 that will be collected in May from the people of the District, beginning Wednesday next "Within the next two or three days llr. Prince will mail to thousand" of Washimrtonlanx notices that their personal and Intangible taxrs arc due In May, And that from the end of that .month on penalties will attach in. the event of failnre. Although the law does not provide that either real estate or personal tax bills shall be mailed to taxpayers. Mr. Prince last jear tried the expcri V ment of mailing iiersonal tax bills. Forgot Their BUI. - The plan did not accomplish much. as two-thirds of the people forgot to take the bills to the collector's office, and when they went there had to -ask that new ones be made out. Mr. Prince's plana for this year's collection of taxes are based upon a almpllficatlon of former methods, so that the taxpayer will be delayed a little as possible when in the District 'building. The old plan was for the j-ltlzen to irn to the assessor's office. li 'where his bill was made out Then I'm be ambled around through several I a it .....3 ... . -ql Hfrrrnt It-rtn ,KlHiaa U III ac.siw ......-.. ...... cages in the collector's office before ,he was able to pay over his money. All this work is now to be done in ' ihe collector's office. A long row of .windows, each marked with letters of ,the alphabet, will tell the taxpayer what window to walk to when he is 'asking for his bills, real estate or i personal. Jones will go to the J wln Jdow, and back of this window will stand clerks with the J ledgers. In "drawers under these ledgers are the lills already made out White will 'find the same situation at the W wln Iow. and all the way through the al phabet ' Work la Facilitated. Should a citizen want his real estate "bill only he can quickly get it If he wants bis personal tax bill only it will be there when he asks. If he presents his personal tax notice he -will be facilitated to some extent Having obtained bills in quick order the taxpayer goes to the "JaThTer'a "window, pays what he owes and gets Ills bill receipted. There will be twenty large real estate ledgers, with a clerk in charge of two ledgers and other clerks In charge of the personal tax bills. Bills for real estate taxes will be "mailed on written request, but .ilr. Prince believes that he has matterx no arranged that taxpayers will lose 31ttle time in asking for and obtain -Ins their bills at the alphabetically -arranged windows and ledgers. Mllllsn Expected. Last year 18.000 people paid taxes. The Intangible tax law is expected to run the total this year to between 30,000 and 35.000. There were col lected in May of last year $6,053,476, , and it Is estimated by officials that the Intangible tax law will add an other $1,000,000 to the revenues next month, with a total of not less than 37.000,900. The rate for real estate taxes this -year remains the same as last $1.50 .on the $100; personal tax is unchanged at $1.50 on the 100, and the intangible tax is 30 cents on $100. Taxes in the District are payable in the November prior to May, but the total November collections are not over $300,000. Collections upon which penalties are applied often run as high as $1,000,000 after May 30. through forgetfulness or lack of funds. Some of this amount Is not collected until the real estate -Involved is sold to pay taxes. Considerable Strain on Hank. The payment of Mai- taxes put a con alderable strain upon the District bank. , which are being drawn upon rather heavily to make liberty loan payments i ji was expected that the Treasury De partment will follow its previous custom of redeposltlne with District banks a substantial portion of the tax collections, "the money to b returned to the Treas If the enthusiasm shown by the fli-l ntghters at the Belasio last even ing i any criterion, the musical com ed. "It rays to Kllrt." is not des tined to "turn "em ana)" on Broad way. Frances Nordstrom, who wrote the book and lyrics, has stretched into I three arts the storj of a doctor whose 'methods with his women patients . oothes them, but upsets their lius ,'band. Allied with him In the plot Is -. professor whose social theories are based upon the 'premise that a wife" I who continues to live with a husband fter she lias ceased to loxe him Is committing a greater sin that if she flew to the mate who has found her soul. Peggy Hopkins, a former Washing ton girl. plas the part of Dovey. the 'professor's wife, who Is one of the 'temperamental young things who see in the doctor their so'il mate. Victor Morley is cast a- the doctor Cora Dallis. also in love witli the doc. has a husband who has charmed by the doctor's wife, thus adding to the gayety of affairs. There are nine or ten other lovesick young women In the play. The music is by Joseph McManus. Scott Welsh, last geen here In Victor Herbert's opera, "Eileen." has a good tenor voice, and his one opportunity to display it last evening made many wish he had several other Slumbers assigned him. Clara Palmer, who won fame in other musical plays, deserves a better role than that of lad 'a maid. ing officer of the Imperial Guard, dragged into a hotel, and Is mis treated by one of them- which one. she cannot tell. The Countess Zap Une. an Influential patroness of Vera, gets the Crar to arrest the three officers. As a solution he orders Count N'lcho, the oldest, to marry the girl, which he does, although Vera leaves him immediately after the ceremony.' Knraged by the girl's mis treatment Boris, her fiance, head of a revolutionary group, arouses his comrade, and the mob soon have affairs In their own hands. Miss Brady is excellently cast in the role of the girl, and her support is adequate. This picture remains- the attraction at the Knickerbocker today. i.i n-r i. "From the Ganden Party to Jail" Is the title Gus Mortimer has given his latest burlesque offering, and when it was revealed to the Lyceum Theater patrons yesterday, the ver dict was "the best ever."

The cast Is well balanced, and includes Gus Mortimer. Dorothy Blodgett Loretta Gail, BUI Hasan, and Harry Lenlne. Dorothy Blodgetfs "It Must Be Love" song and Anna Hagans' "Tishomingo Blues' were among the features. The Lagouldee Sisters re ceived much applause for their song "1 Know You." The chorus Is one of the delights of the show, and was re peatedly recalled In the several marching numbers. C RANDALL'S. Pauline Frederick is the star of the screen version of Sardou's "La Tosca." which was originally written for Sara Bernhardt, shown at Cran dall's yesterday, and being repeated today.

She con sents", but when she finds that Scar pia lied, and her lover Is really dead, she takes matters In her own hands and extorts a fiendish revenge, bring ing the picture to a poweiful climax. STRAND. The tremendous patriotic appeal of "The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin," was neer more forcefully exemplllled than by the enthusiasm of yesterday's capacity audiences at Moore's Strand Theater, where Rupert Julian's sen sational expose of the many abhor rent qualities of German kultur be- '.gan the second and last week of Its record-breaking run. The grip which this cinema specta cle has taken upon the Capital is easily explained. The picture from everv vien-DOint Is iinloue The j story, in the first place, presents an unusual blending of fact and fancy. The Impresslveness of the construct ed scenario is enhanced by splendid acting. Rupert Julian, in the role of the most hated figure In the world today, contributes to an ensemble a wonderful characterization. Aside from its Intrinsic merit as an entertainment "The Kaiser, the Beast of Berlin," carries a message of In splratlon. Jt impresses why we are In the war. why we are going to stay in. and why the cause of the allies will triumph In addition to the feature, the pro- ! gram Include a new- Issue of the . news pictorial and a sprightly com- I edy.

The Shell Game." starring Emmy Wehlen, Is tomorrow's attraction. AMERICAN. "Ey Right of Purchase," starring Norma Talmadge, proved an accept able offering to patrons of Crandall'a American yesterday.

That the popularity of the film ver sion of Maeterlinck's "The Bluebird" remains undiminished Is attested by the large audiences that greeted Its showings at Crandall'a Savoy yesterday- That adults were In the majority seems to disprove the assertion that this Is a child's picture. "The Bluebird" is an allegory of human life and the constant search for happiness, repre sented by the boy and girl Tyltl and Mytyl who seek the bluebird of hap. plness. The marvelous effects intro duced in the picture make it possible to interpret the Belgian philosopher's story even more effectively than was possible on the speaking stage. The work of Robin Macdougal and Tula Belle as the children Is particu larly noteworthy. The showings of this picture at the Savoy will be con cluded today. Jrj In periodical pm merits.

CASINO. "My Own United States," which Is this week's attraction at Crandall'a Casino, takes first rank as a patriotic film.

The ensuing scenes picture the experiences of the original Philip Nolan, who la supposed to have been a tool in the hands of Aaron Burr The enmity of Hamilton and Burr, their duel. Burr's subsequent flight and hi arrest for treason, are cleverlv pictured. Into this story is woven the love affair of Nolan and Agnes C'li'inhlll After their marriage Nolan 1 arrested upon evidence found on Purr Ills trial brings the well-developed climax in which the headstrong young man ex claims: "Damn these United States' I wish 1 might never see or hear of them again'" Then the film pictures his life and suffering when, hi mad wish fulfilled, he In Kept on the seas for more than flftv years Though never released. -lie fully atones by his bravery In a naval battle aboard the historic frigate Constitution with the Algerian pirates.
