With them went young men and .young women, and theri not so youig. unill Coney 'Lland had a reaerd crowd. There were 80.000 peoren. at tlie resort. an it seemed that every one of theap liwged for a dip in the cool sea. ut They ran into the Coney Island bath house keeper, who saw a chance to -profiteer aa4 took it. Usually the prje for a bathing suit and a room Is 15 cents. It you.have your own auit you pay 0 cents. But almost with exception yesterday tpe bath house keepers Jumped their prices. At first some charged $1. As the rowd Increased the price went to $t.10 to $1.75 and finally to $2. Many hit upon the seheme of packing two or three persons in one bathroom. Of course. they got the money. Out of 300,000 t ere were plenty who could pay the price. But of those who could not pay $2 for a swim thbre were thousands. The experIences of a man. and his wife and three ,children were typical. One of the children was a boy of foUteen, the others were girls. The fa0IlY. *iAbneatly but plainly dressed.

His one hope lies in marriage, for his uncle *lways gives his nephaws a $100,000 choct on the day of their marriage. His lanee, unwilling to take the little gold ring until she sees the color oft the check. refuses to go on with the ceremony. In desperation. he arraqges for a mock marriage with the stenpgrhpher of his chum's father. Chum, by the way. is generaUy full to overflowing with that "Which stingeth, like an adder ahd biteth like a serpenL" (This play, gentle reader, was written about a, time prior to a year ago the first of this month.) Chum agrees to play the part ot the minister, but he falls by thn way side of the club bar and sends a sub stitute. All goes merrily until the aunt sends the newly "married" couple trooping off to bed. Then the fun begins. It is rather impossible. under the circumstances to be to gether. and the efforts of the supposed husband ;o leave the house. the ar rival of his intoxicated chum, to gether with the coming of the jilted dancer, form a merry whirl of laugh able events. All comes out rightly when it is discovered that the intoxicated chum sent a real minister to perform the rcremony, and Forrester and the pret ty stenographer agree that they will let the ceremony stick.

It is a pie' ture. to be sure, that relids upo tmh dream of expedient for Its pajor ap peal, but so engrossing is the, pre jested narrative, so sviglful the aettg and so artistic the production and photography tilat the value of the subject is not appreciably Impaired by resort to a device that is mot now for its niost thrilling epiopdes. The story Is one of banditry. and. during the dream episodes, of swift retribution. The story abounds In melodramatie incidents and tense climaxse. Mr. Keenan in the role of the major .1 for*n e of his most effective charac ter studies and is admirably pup ported by Eid Markoy. Dixie Lee, Charles French. and others of note. The bill is agreeably rounded out by the inclusion of an animated sin gle-reel comedy and orchestral ac companiment that adheres closely to the spirit of the pictured subjects. . I POL'8. Double Feature Program of Films. Poll's presents as its featured at traction this week a dual bill that includes Marguerite Clark, the sweetest girl in pictures, in her most notable screen success. "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch," and Charlie Chaplin In his famous film burlesque on "Cormen." Miss Clark, in all her film career. has probably never had a role in which she triumphed to the extent she has in "Mrs. Wiggs of the Cab bage Patch," the photoplay version of the famous story that took Amer ica by storm a number of years ago. Miss Clark assumes the central role of this well-know story, and those who are familiar with the production agree that it is by far one of her finest characterizations. Charlie Chaplin's burlesque on "Carmen," in which he is cleverly supported by Edna Purviance, Ben Turpin and other comedy stars, is seen as the added attraction of the bill. This picture is recognized as one of the odstandIng hits of the famous comedian's cinema career. PALACFJ Douglas MacLean in "Let's Be Fashionable." The sprightly adventures of the Henry Langdons. man and wife, in their attempt at the social conquest Df an ultra-fashionable California suburb, constitute the latest screen activities of Douglas MacLean., the Washington boy, and his wistfully ap pealing co-star. Miss Doris May, in "Lets Be Fashionable." their latest 4tarring production, which opened a week's run at Loew's Palace Theater yesterday as the featured attraction oif an abundant and joyous program. Mr. MacLean's urbane acting style and Miss May's thoroughly charming display of talent bring a brilliant note of comedy to a picture that is unusually rich in comedy values. Mr. and Mrs. Carter De Haven in an added number. "A Model Husband"; the splendid overture selection. "The 4weetheart Shop"; the news pictures, Wiutt and Jeff cartoon and other fea tures complete an absorbing and aie lightful program. COLUMBIA. Eugene O'Brien in 'The Figurehead." Eugene O'Brien, the virile young screen iddi, lashes a fresh batch of !eminine and- masculine hearts to ha Iramatic chariot wheels on each new film appearance and "The Figure tead," the picture which brings Mr. D'Brien to the screen of Loew's Co lumbia Theater for the first four days f this week, beginning yesterday, is rio exception to Mr. O'Brien consecu Live photoplay winning streak. In "The Figurehead." Mr. O'Brien riot only has the advantage of a power ul and timely story by John Lynch, but his supporting cast includes Anna 2. Nilsson, Ora Carews, Edwin Stevens and others. It is a powerful and coin pelling photoplay romance, projected mgainst a background of twentieth :entury politics and directe6 and act ad in a fashion that reflects intense :redit upon all concerned. A long array of added hits complete in exceptional program. CRANDALL'8. Wallace Reid in 'The Dancim' Fool." The humors and the romance of the iug business are made the basis of plot in "The Dancin' Fool," his best rec'ent photoplay vehicle, in 'which Wallace Reid was pictured as a star at Crandall's Theater yesterdal. In a role that makes the cabaret and tht gaudier pursuits of metropolitan life iuitle as important an element in the Sievelopment of the narrative as the -nore- prosaic manufacture of earth ,nware receptacles for various de grees of alcoholic content. Bebe Dan liet affords the star exceptionally in teresting support, Supplementing "The Dancin' Fool," and assuming almost the rank of comtpanion feature on the bill, is shown for the first time in the Capital the new Sunshine cornedy, "Monkey' Business," in which seem to have been concentrated all of the laugh provoking qualities of' which the Fox studios are capable. Yesterday's 2rowds were kept In continuous .hrieks of merriment by the absurd ievelopments in which this efferves :ent farce abounds. K NICK ERBOCK ER. Itupert Hughes' A, e'ffective arrangement af news, ,omedy and topical subjects furnish d the embellishment of the bill of hotoplays compiled for presentation he first two days of the currefit week it Crandall's Knickerboeker Theater. was especially interesting to note he enthusiasm with which yesterday's 'pacity audiences greeted the first iuthentic pictures shown in Washing .*r. of the final day of the Democratic 'onvention i"n San Francisco and the 'qually complete views of the home 'oming celebration in honor of ,sen ionr Hardling at Marion, Ohio.

In "Weatch My D1ek," shoym for the irst time in Washiagtgo as the chief feature of the week's bill at Cran dall's Metropolitan Theater yesterday, has got a new style is camera comedy. This brilliant major offerisg is Ad mirably supplemnoted on an excep tional bill by Herbert Kaufman'S mialaturo. malterpitce, "Content.". d new issue of the Paths New. and an especially diverting series of "Topics of the DAy.'., "4cratch My Back" is a genially traveetied film version of Rupert Hughes' story of thel same name, ipa which T. Roy Barnes, one of 'the most able of the stage'ayounger comedians, and Helena ehadwiek, a youthful stas who displays unsusected. gifts a a comedienne, assume the role of* Val Itomney. "the man who always did what he wonted to." and Madeline gecor, a girl who followed much the same policy. but with most indifferent success. The story -which, with ablq assistance by a strong supporting cast, they visualize upon the silver sheet would be a romantic melodrama were it not for the delightfully hu morous "readers" with which Mr. Hughes has converted his tale into a sparkling burlesque. Excellent musical accompaniment is a feature of the splendid bill. -RIALTO. "Yes or No," Featuring. Norma Talmadge. Few photoplays of past seasons have offered such decided contrasts as "Yes or No." the cinema adaption of Arthur Goodrich's Broadway triumph of the same name, as presented yes terday by the First National Ex hibitors at Moore's Bialto Theater with talented Norma Talmadge in the featured role, the showing to continue throughout the week. Two extreme phases of life. as well as two extreme characters are shown, the story shift ing from one to the other with start ling rapidity. In the home of Margaret Vane we see the social elite frittering away their time, while a moment later, whisked by the magic of the moving picture camera, a few blocks away we encounter Minnie Berry, laboring amid oq# lid poverty to keep her home an babies In a manner worthy of the love of her devoted but pre occupied husband. Miss Talmadge handles both roles. and she does it with rare skill and charm. The Rialto Symphony Orchestra. Daniel Breeskin conducting, renders a musical compliment to the pres entation, a score which Is.thoroghly enjoyable and carries the theme per fectly from start to finish. Overture ton the week. gelections from '"Sweet. hearts." Added features. showing the usual careful selection closing an ex ceptionkily strong. bill for this late In the season. GLEN ECHO PARK. The feature of the entertainment promised the Sunday visitors was the series of concerts by Minster's band and this always serves as a potent drawing card. In addition to the concerts the park's entertainment list was long and varied. That this list met with the full approval of the park fan" was evidenced by the- way they "lined-up" for a chance -at the big rides.- a steady stream -pouring into them. Tonight the dancers come in for a share of attention as the big pavilion is open week nights and a twelve piece orchestra dispenses the jazziest of music.
