The experience of Philip ?. Barlhol

of playwrltlng. Not only is "Over

but It was accepted by tho tirst man?
ager by whom It was read, and proved
an Instantaneous success on the night
of Its initial production. Young Bar
tholomae was Just out of school, a
graduate of the Kenssslaer Polytechnic
Institute, at Troy, N. Y., when he went
to work for the American Bridge
Company. His nature rebelled at tho
exacting work over blue prints and
contract estimates, and as he had a
natural predcllctlon for the theatre, he
quite naturally started to write a play.

Deaf Mute to Read From Lips
What Manager Says to

Chicago, 111.. Decombcr 21.?Manager
James Callahan, of the Chicago Amer?
icana, has cast aside an offer which,
! if everything was Justifiable in base
! ball, ho bclievos would sorely brinf;
the 1913 pennant to his tetim,
It was an offer yesterday from a
dear mute, who claimed to be an adopt
in lip reading,
i "I have a scheme which will make
j your loam penn?ni winners next sea
! son." was tho sentence written on n
j card and placed before tho manager.
"This is interesting at least." said
I the manager to his visitor,
j Then a few motions of the fingers
cxplaluod to the South Sldo leader that
the man with the pennant In bis grasp
could not talk.
In a short time the manager was di?
gesting the scheme, for his caller hart
It already written out. It explained
that tho pennant could he easily won
by allowing tho mute, with a strong
pair of field glasses, to take a position
near the field or undur the grandstand.
By the aid of the glasses ho would read
the lips of the manager while talking
to his men between Innings, and tho
players on tho field in whispered con?
versations.
Then by the aid of an electrical con?
trivance connected with tho home bench
mid a code of signals he could let it be
known Just exactly what kind of a
game itnd what tricks the visitors were
about to come out with.
Callahan wrote this answer: "No
doubt your plan would prove a winning
one, but baseball is an honest game,
and 1 cannot consider it."

Bronze Bust of "La France" to!

ParlB, December 21.?Franco Is ar?
ranging another Imposing testimonial
of her friendship for tho Unltod Status.
To-morrow a public subscription is to
be opened .to offer a bronze bust of
"La France," by tho UlUBtrlous French
sculptor,, Auguste Rodin, which will
bo placed at the base of tho monument
to be dedicated next June to Samuel
De Champlaln, tho French navigator,
oxplorer and discoverer of tho lake
that bears his name.
Llko the gift from the pcoplo of
Franco of Bartholdl's statue of lib?
erty, the presentation of "JUt Franco,"
wbloh is the llguro of a woman, marks,
historically another epoch In thu rela?
tions of fraternity between Frunce and
tho United States of America. s
President Fulliores will houd tho list
of subscribers, and will bu followed
by Foreign Minister Justin do tlelvos,
Ambassador Jules Juasorund, Gabriel

Amerlcan commission for tho develop?
ment of political, economic, literary and
artistic relations, and Count Do Ito
chambeuu.
The Inlllutlvo of the movement em?
anated with Ambassador Jussorand, in
accord with the French Foreign Of
lice, but as it wos wished to havo a
public rather than a governmental tes?
timonial, the Franco-American com?
mittee was requested to assumo the
dlree.Uon.
An iippoal to the public for subscrip?
tions will appear In tho newspapers
to-morrow. This will Indicate that
Franco Is deeply touched by the f^t
quent manifestations of American
friendship for this country through the
dedication of statues of Frenchmen lit
America.
The approaching glorlllcntlon of
Champlaln, who conceived a vast pro?
ject of a French America front Canadu

American republic was developed, Is
admirably suited to oxpross the Warmth
of French affection.

Gabrlol Huu.<jlaux will relate to?
morrow In the Figaro tho Interesting
story of how Auguste Bodln's "La
Franco" happened to bo sc-lcctod. He
suys the committee was ul a loss to
know Just what offering to send to
America which would harmonize with
the Imposing architecture of ttie
Champlaln monument It finally do
cldcd that tho offering must be a true
Jewel. The members first visited tho
.studio of Auguste Rodin, because he Is
popular In America, and walked
through tho vurlou? salons. Suddenly
thoy discovered tho bronzo "La France."
Tho writer continues: "Imagine our
emotion. We sought a symbol, ana w*
found France herself?.1 protty France,
full of grace. Vivacity and courage, a
young French woman, with a fruiiK
and loyal regard, a young woman who
Is a replica of our Clotlldes. Henriettes,
manches and Jetinnos. Her hair Is ar
rungon like a helmet, and her attire IB
a cuirass. We sought a French thought,
and we found an Image of France her?
self."
Tho bust will be mounted on a mar?
ble base, with a marble representation
of lite American and French flags. It
will bo presented by a special delega?
tion of Frenchmen. Including members
uf the Franco-American committee.

MAKESAPPEAL FOR
M'CUE CHILDREN
Washington, D. Q, December 21.?
Why the children of Mayor James &
McCuo, of Charlottcsvlllo, Va., should
be paid by tho Northwestern Mutual
Life Insurance Company $15,000 as In?
surance on hlB life, notwithstanding his
execution for the murdor of his w'fc
In 1901, was told to-day to tho Supreme
Court of tho United States by D. liar
mon, of Charlottcsvlllo, counsel for tho
children. It was the socond day of the
argument In regard to the liability of
the company. William H. White, of
Richmond, argued for tho Insurance
company.
Mr. Harmon declared there were
many reasonu why the Circuit Court of
Appeals for the Fourth Clrcutt was
right In holding the compafiy Hhould
pay the Jir.,000. Ho arg-ued that the
Insurance contract woe goverlied by
the laws of Wisconsin, the homo of
tho company, and that In that Htate
execution on tho gallows did not an?
nul a contract of Insurance. Ho drug
natcd the right of the children arising
under the policy as a property right
vested by the npeo'sl statute incorpo?
rating tho company.
ELECTION CONTEST
CASE DISMISSED
[Special to The Tlmes-Dlepatch )
Norfolk, va., December 21.?The
Norfolk county election contest case
wua dismissed to-day by Judge Joseph
T. Dawloss, of the Circuit Court of
that county, upon motion of ex-Judge
D. Tueknr Brooke, counsel for the con?
testants. The motion was mado after
Judge Lawless had ruled that In order
to vitiate the election It must hovn
been proven that enough votes were
counted that ought not to have heen
counted to reverse tho majority. Judge
Brooke argued that every safeguard
thrown around tho safety of elections
had been violated, and he depended
upon testimony along that line " lit
make out ills cuse. Attorneys for tho
defendants demurred to the charge of
violations of the Barksdalo pure elec?
tion law, but the demurrer was OVijl -
ruled. It tu not ronMdend probable
that any further action will be taken
on the charge. Judge Hrookc said U
was his intention to prove that tin
money r,ald to have been expended by
tho rontestees was for the payment of
poll taxes.
