'THE WIDOW'S MIGHT'
PROVES ITS WORTH Play at Belasco Theater Abounds in Amusing Lines and Droll Situations One of the best things about "Tho Widow's Might," now playing at the HelaHco, is the name. Everyone won ders why it is that kind of might in stead of the other, the "mite" which early scriptural lessons taught. It takea a lot of waiting to find tho an swer to this, but when It comes It proves worth while. This widow not 'inly "might," but what is more, she does. She does all sorts of remarkable •nnd feminine things. After refusing In nipijl fire -uccession four men who love her and propose to her for tho double purpose of securing their own happlnCM and also their fortune, she suddenly accepts the only man in the room who does not want to marry her and whoso few stammering remarks she construes Into a proposal, albeit they are uttered with an entirely dlf farent intent. There are various amusing lines, and Home amusing; situations In this play. The loading role, that of the widow, designed originally for Lillian Russell, i» iilayed by Miss Oakley. She fits Into the part of the fascinating, de lightful and Inconsequential woman admirably. The smiles, petulances and vagaries of this widow become doubly charming and pardonable under tho spell of Miss Oakley's personality and she has never looked lovelier than In her first act costume, although the oriental effect of the ball gown Is un deniably attractive. Mrs. Henry Wil liam Puffer was delightfully played by Ida Lewis. She read the part of the good-hearted newly rich woman with keen appreciation of all the humors it contained. Miss Roslna Henley made her first appearance In the In genue role of Beryl Quarrler. Miss Henley Is from a family distinguished fur histrionic attainments. She re ceived a pleasant greeting from the audience last night. The four men, all in love with the widow, all prosperous Wall street bro kers and all classed under the title of "Billy's friends," were played by Frank Camp, Harry Andrews, Charles Giblyn and Charles Ruggles. William Yearance made an able vil lain and James Applebee was de.light ful in the role of Puffer, a wealthy button manufacturer. Dick Vivian really Is a delightful Juvenile and he did full credit to the part of Richard Wall, the misunderstood youngster who Is nearly married by a woman he does not want for a wife. One of the noticeable bits of the piece Is the butler Hampton played by David Edwin. No more finished act ing was to be seen on the stage than his work In this part last night. A number of delightful musical numbers wan given off stage for which the program gave credit to Miss .Adele Farrington. • • • Oscar Wilde was the subject of much Interest last week when Richard Bur ton called his writings to mind in the course of lectures on modern drama Which he delivered here. He comes more vividly to the attention of all playgoers this week, when his "Pic ture of Dorian Gray" Is presented at the Orpheum. Dramatic form suits this story, and when It is enlivened as tt Is with many of the most brilliant and biting epi grams from the great writer's various works It becomes a Bcintlllant and highly Interesting sketch. It is sure to attract Interest and attention from students, and especially those dramat ists who have tried their own hand at making over a story Into a play. The success attained In this dramatization by Edward Davis is decided. To be sure, he has excellent material to draw upon, and he has cleverly built up the dialogue of the piece so that in his role of Sir Henry Wottan, the pessim ist he has opportunity to enunciate the most brilliant of those utterances for which Oscar Wilde was so noted. Mr. Davis has contrived an excellent ve hicle for vaudeville use, and one In which he appears to distinct advan tage. He has a fine speaking voice and admirable presence. The closing lines of the sketch are taken from "The Ballad of Reading Gaol," and Mr. Davis delivered them with marked eloquence and feeling which made them most impressive. In addition he plays the piano well and offers an ac companiment to one of his own songs which is sung in the act. Miss Adele Blood enacts the beauti ful Dorian Gray to excellent advan tage. Undeniably beautiful, she real izes completely the enthusiastic praises of her which precede her entrance to the stage. She has also good dramatic ability, and In the moment when she thinks she has killed her lover shows a nlt:o portrayal of passion and re- Templar Saxe playß the third part in the sketch, the artist, and sings well the two songs which are allotted him. Scenlcally the sketch Is beautiful, although there are perhaps moro colors In the light than make for the perfec tion of artistry. Miss Blood wears beautiful costumes, and the Mueha poster windows are an effective intro duction into the arrangement of the studio. There are other things on the bill this week well worthy of mention. There is James Thornton—back again. "Mention" is all he needs; he Is stand ard. The Imperial Musicians are 13 in number and 75 in horsepower, If har monious noise is their measure. They appear in hussar garb and do a brass blowing stunt that makes your ears ring and your heart beat anew. It's an excellent turn. Heir Apdale has a miscellaneous collection of animals co perfectly trained that tho little brown bear appears to know as much as ordinary people, and even the ant eater shows signs of human intelligence, the while the canines and felines frolic gleesomely together. It's ona of the best animal acts ever seen here—the very best since Minnie, the elephant, went away. Marlon Murray and her company, the eccentric <Cr.avato, Prin gle and Whiting and jolly Vanny Rice, with a new stunt, make up the rest. All In all It's a wonderfully interesting bill, one of the strongest this theater has offered since the Road Show. At the Mason opera house Frederic Thompson will for the week begin ning Monday, August 22, present "The Spendthrift," the latest dramatic work of Porter Emerson Browne, whose "A Fool There Was" has given him a position among American dramatists. The piece is a "vital drama of today," and deals primarily with the extrava gance and wasted opportunities of a class of women who are numerous in certain strata of society. The basic theme of "The Spendthrift" appealed to Browne for a long time before he set his thoughts on paper and when he did he put into hio writing all the vitality with which the idea was invested during the mental evolution. It is the story °f an extravagant wife who lives far and away beyond her husband's income and which brings ruin and disaster in its wake. Every body will be interested in witnessing Mr Browne's story of such a timely Miss Marian M. McClure, Who Will Be Married in Berean Hall Tonight % topic. Mr. Thompson will present the piece here in the same lavish manner that characterizes all his productions and the acting company, headed by Doris Mitchell, Is promised to 1 be an organization of superlative strength. • • • Daniel Frohman has arranged with the management of the Belasco com- pany for the 'initial production of two new plays. Mr. Frohman will come to Los Angeles and will personally assist in making- the productions which are scheduled for the early fall. In Hoyt's "A Contented Woman," which will be played at the Belasco next week, Ida Lewis will have a cap ital opportunity for some telling com edy work as Aunt Jim, the strong minded woman who Is a firm believer in equal suffrage and whose advocacy of the cause of votes for women is carried as far as tho adoption of male attire, even to the wearing of "pants." In the Belasco production Richard Vivian will be seen as the office hunt- Ing husband, while Helene Sullivan will head the feminine contingent. The returns from the primary elec tions will be announced from the stage of the Burbank theater at the per formance of "The Talk of New York" tonight. Although the returns will not be complete at the time the musical comedy Is ended It Is believed that the trend of the vote will be manifested by that time. • • • Another of the Eastern Star theater parties was held at the Burbank last night. Two hundred members of Loy alty chapter No. 217 and thefr friends occupied seats on the lower floor. The affair was In charge of Mrs. Ada Whit ing:, worthy matron, and Elmer Heimor, worthy patron. This is the fourth Eastern Star lodge to give a theater party at the Burbank this summer. . . • "The Talk of New York" will be the last of the musical comedies at the Burbank, and this lively show promises to be even more popular than "Little Johnny Jones," from the dimensions of the audiences since the opening per formance. A. Byron Beasloy has re turned from his vacation, and rehear* sals began yesterday for "Salvation Nell," the big drama in which Mrs. Fiske starred for some time. Prepara tions are being made to give this play a big scenic equipment. • • • "The Sausage Maker," a concoction of songs, dances and comedy, is the vehicle in which Alphin and*Fargo of . the Olympic are introducing Ollie Mack, their new Irish comedian, to their patrons. The pair, with the as sistance of Monte Carter in Hebrew roles, get away with some comic sit uations. One of these is the burlesque Apache dance, in which the Teuton and Hibernian portray the dance of the Paris slums which Dave Morris and Hazel Douglas depict a few minutes before. The scene of the travesty is laid In gay Paree, In one of the risque cafes ■where some rich Americans are seek ing adventure. The rich Americans, Mack, Mendel and Cohen, are placed in all sorts of amusing situations. Tho funmakers score first as Impersonating Spanish toreadors later as Turkish nabobs and finally reach the limit of merriment with a burlesque boxing bazaar. . The Transatlantic .Four add choice selections, while all the principals and chorus appear in new song hits. Miss Gene Hathaway, the prinia donna, is seen, in a character role to advantage with a travesty hobble skirt on. The rest of the cast, Including Walter Spencer, Gale Henry, Dave Morris and Rosie Cohan, have suitable parts ably handled. ... - » * • Complications galore ensue In "A Mixed Mixup," the musical comedy farce offering of the Princess musical comedy company for the present week. Comedy climaxes and dramatic situa tions pile fast, one upon the other. Fred Ardath seems in his element In the role of a young husband married for money to an extremely jealous wife. The plot of the piece centers about this unhappy pair and a friend of theirs. The hubby of the Jealous wife takes the friend's wife out to the theater and to supper afterward. This causes the complications, which are not all solved until the final curtain is dropped. George Spalding has the role of the friend, and with Ardath as a team mate does neat comedy work. The part of his gay and pretty wife is taken by Bessie HHI In an admirable man ner The Jealous wife of the playlet Is portrayed by Geraldine Woods with her usual aptitude for eccentric char acter parts. Earl Hall also breaks Into the realm of comic eccentricity as an elderly uncle with "Foxy Grandpa tendencies. The Interpolated musical numbers of the playlet are an especial feature this week. Bessie Hill comes to the front with "I'd Like to Furnish a Flat for You" while Lillian Hoffman is feat ured in "When the Lights Are Low," admirably and melodiously sung. George Spaldlng's offering is "Gee, I LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, MOIST 16, 1910. Wish I Had My Old Girl Back Again." Angle North, the new ingenue, makes a bid for applause and gets it with a picturesque musical specialty, "Mex ico." Altogether this may be safely called a banner week at the First street comedy cavern. The new Sullivan & Consldlne bill, consisting of six new splendid acts, opened at the Los Angeles theater to a capacity audience yesterday after noon. The bill is headed by Mildred Stoller In her impersonations of noted actresses and Watson, Hutchings and Edwards In the big fun festival called "Schmalz's Night Off." The bill will be reviewed in tomorrow's issue. • • • The next production of the Glrton stock company at the Grand opera house will be James Kyrle McCurdy's successful play, "Yankee Doodle De tective." Mr. McCurdy not only wrote the play but made two unusually suc cessful starring tours throughout this country In It. The piece might be called a melodramatic comedy, for It is an equal combination of the melo dramatic element and good, bright comedy. The play has never been seen in this city and should prove an ex cellent offering. • • * Lillian Hayward, one of the best known stock actresses In this city and perhaps one of the best feminine "heavies" In the country, has Just been engaged as a member of the Qlrton company at the Grand opera house. Miss Hayward may be remembered as one of the biggest favorites of the old Ulrlch stock company during Its many successful seasons at the. Grand. She has had unlimited stock experience and should prove a strong addition to the Glrton organization. She will make her first appearance next Sunday after noon as Kate Harrison In James Kyrle McCurdy's detective play, "Yankee Doodle Detective." Musical There are three holdovers at Levy's cafe chantant this week, all popular numbers. The dancer, La Sollta, possesses several of the characteristics of Miles Genee and Pavlowa, and these combined with the Spanish tempera ment make her an admirable artist. This week she and her assistant have prepared a folk dance familiar among the people of southern Spain. M. Or tiz possesses a number of medals for dancing, bestowed by dignitaries of the court of Spain and the king him self. His work is a considerable as set to La Solita's grace and charm of Interpretation. "La Paloma" is the song chosen by the little dancer for this week, and with the guitar and castanets, Spanish dress and typically Spanish girl, a corner of Spain seems to be before the audidhce. There have been a number of trios at Levy's, but none seem to have hit the popular note so well as Rogers, Stewart and Elwood. These singers present the latest songs with swing and dash. They rendered six num bers and many encores yesterday. The solo work this week is left to Mr. El wood, whose voice is well worth at tention. Bob Albright continues to surprise the newcomers and please the patrons of last week who heard his work. His act is entertaining from beginning- to end, combining "Melba" imitations, yodellng, coon songs and the different voice parts In the "Sextet from Lucia." Albert Green, a newcomer, possesses a well trained, strong bass voice, which ma to advantage. Hlb phrasing of "AHeep in the Deep" was especial ly gcod, and the old song seemed to take nn ww beauties through his in terpretation. The Kammermeyer or chestra offers interesting programs. GETB HIGH R. R. PLACE MEXICO CITY, Aug. 15.—X. N.

After a short talk with the accused, the sheriff placed the handcuffs on Schultz and took him to the county jail. Schultz was taken into the waiting room at the county Jail. He calmly setected a chair and awaited develop ments. At first he appeared calm and collected, but finally the suspense be gan to tell on him, and he became nervous, shifting his feet about on the floor and rubbing him hands together and passing them across his face. After a short delay an official interpreter was summoned and Schultz was taken into another room, where, in the presence of several witnesses, he related the grewsome details of the murder. "My name is Otto Schultz," said the accused in a tremulous, husky voice. "I was born in Shoenberg, Mecklenburg- Schwerin, Germany, twenty-three years ago. I left Germany April 4 this year for America, and arrived in California April 30. My father and mother are living and reside in Ganz> a small town not far from Berlin." Sheriff Hammel then warned the ac cused that anything he might say would be used against him and if he wanted to tell the story of the murder he was at liberty to do so. "If I ant to s»y all about It I can tell you how It happened," replied Schultz as he settled himself In a chair and began his story. REVENGE FOB 81-OW "I was feeding the chickens and turkeys there," continued the prisoner, "and as I was feeding thm I was giv ing them some corn which was against Mrs. Castine's orders. She came up to me, and in getting away I stepped on the neck of one of the chickens, and as Mrs. Castine became excited over trifles she started to scold, and I an swered her. She called me names in German and Maid I was a son of a dog and a son of a tramp. "I answered her that I was not a son of a tramp. Then things went on that way, and in her excitement she got hold of a stick like the handle of a rake and went for me. I told hold of something and hit her back. Well, I'd been fixing up a spade there, and it was the first thing I saw when she came for me. I gold hold of the lower end of the thing—the blade—and hit her over the head with the handle. "She fell over in a faint, then I gave her a few more and went into my room. I sat there for an hour or two. It seems that I came to my senses after I had reached mv room. I was afraid and it occurred to me that I had done something terrible and did not know what to do. "When I stepped out and found her where she had dropped, then I bot tled her—l mean I buried her. I dug a grave and used the same spade to dig the hole. It took me a little over a quarter of an hour to dig the hole. Then I buried her. MAKKS ins KSCAPB "I then went to my room, got my things together, parked them and eat around a little while longer. Then I went away to Lancaster, boarded a train and came to Los Angeles. "I went to a baker. I don't know the man's name, but it is somewhere near the station. I went to the baker to get something to eat and then re turned to the station and went, to a second bakery. There I struck work. A woman there who spoke German di rected me to a place on a street that turns to the left from the station. I went there and found work. I don't know the name of the place or people, but it is near the gas tank." Sheriff Hummel then cross-examined the prisoner. The latter answered promptly and his story was not sha ken. Q. "This was Friday, the twelfth day of this month, that you killed Mrs. Schultz-Castine?" A. "Yes." Q. "Mrs. Schultz-Castine borrowed a horse and wagon, didn't she, on that day?" A. "Yes." Q. "Then she went to Lancaster, didn't she?" A. "Yes." Q. "And bought some provisions?" A. "Yes." Q. "You remained at the ranch?" A. "Yes." Q. "When she returned you were feeding the chickens?" A. "Yes." Q. "What did she do when she got out of the wagon?" A. "She went to the room." Q. "What did she go to the room for?" A. "To carry something Into tho room." Q. "Was It a bucket or a basket?" A. "No." Q. "When she came out of the room did you have the trouble then?" A: "Yes." Q. "She had on a linen duster?" A. "Yes." Q. "Did she take off her gloves?" A. "I think she had them on." Q. "Did she have on a hat?" A. "Yes." Q. "How long had she been there when the trouble commenced?" A. "A few mlnute3." ROBS VICTIM OF M Q. "How much money did she have?" A. "Four dollars." Q. "Did you take any of her money?" A. "Four dollars, yes." Q. "What is your brother's name?" A. "Emil Schultz." Q. "Where does he live?" A. "At Lancaster." Q. "Mrs. Schultz-Castlne adopted him as her son?" A. "Yes." Q. "How long had your brother and Mrs. Castine been on that ranch at Lancaster?" A. "I can't tell exactly; about seven or eight months." Q. "Mrs. Schultz-Castlne was going to give that ranch to your mother and father when they came to America, was she not?" A. "Yes; she said some thing to that effect." Q. "Are you any relation to Mrs. Schultz-Castine?" A. "No." Q. "Do you know where any of her relatives live?" A. "I think one lives In Berlin or Hamburg." Q. "Is it a sister that lives In Ber lin?" A. "I believe so." Sheriff Hammel continued the ex amination, asking the questions rapid ly. Schultz never was at a loss for an answer and replied Quickly and briefly. DENIES HIGH CONNECTIONS The accused further stated that his brother Emil, who is 111 at Lancaster as the result of having kissed the lips of the dead woman, was not a lieuten ant in the German army, but was a sergeant at the time of his discharge from the service. Schultz said that his father Is- a wagonmaker. The prisoner said he knows nothing about the husband of the murdered woman, other than she at one time had statod that Castine •owned a large number of horses. The accused said the dead woman had some money, but he was ignorant of the amount. When asked whether she was expect ing a remittance from Germany Schultz shrugged his shoulders and replied: "Well, she has some property there." He was unable to say how much money she expected. He was asked as to why the dead woman used the name of Schultz-Castine. The prisoner an swered that she had adopted his broth er and also took his name. Schultz said that he used the bor rowed team to carry his belongings to the railroad station at Lancaster, then returned it and went back to the house and got two pairs of trousers. FEKLS NO HKMOIISK The prisoner is a sunburned, thin, anemic appearing person. He has straw colored hair and eyebrows and a thin, pale blonde mustache. He wore a dark coat and vest and trousers, a white shirt without a collar and well worn shoes when he was taken into custody. At times he appeared ill at ease and toyed with his clothing in a nervous manner. Frequently he would place his hands to his lips and bite his fingers. He seemed to have no feeling of remorse and when led away to his cell slouched along in a careless manner. When his effects were examined it was found that he had taken a num ber of certificates for several hundred shares of mining stock issued to the dead woman. The name of Mrs. Ger trude Driggs, who now is in the county jail under a prison sentence on a charge of forgery, is signed to the cer tificates. It is thought the murdf-rer planned selling the stock in order to realize enough money to defray his ex penses to Germany, as he said he in tended to stay in Los Anirclos for a few weeks before starting on his long trip. The accused probably will be ar raigned in the township court at Lan caster within a few days. DEAD WOMAN'S SON LEARNS OF CAPTURE OF SLAYER Expresses Satisfaction at News.
