New Acts at the Orpheum
Strengthen Good Bill
Ned Wayburn's "dancing daisies"
\u25a0were supposed to be the real headllners
at the Orpheum yesterday, \u25a0when the
week opened. There are seven of the
"daisies," good looking .young •women,
who can dance, but they were not the
stars among the new people at the
theater. Neither did Louise Mink, who
]ed them, manifest the sort of voice
that had been promised for her, even
\u25a0when allowance was made for a cold.
The three other new attractions made
good all along the line, and, with the
holdovers added, the Orpheum bill for
the week is strong.
Frank Byron, with Louise Langdon,
In the act called "The Dude Detective,"

house merry •while he was on the sta&e.
He also introduced a song with a string

Max Nossen, son of Joseph Xossen,
a rich Junk dealer, was arrested yester
t^rday, charged with forging his fath
er's name to a check of $25, which, it is
alleged, he led S. Cooper, secretary of
the Western Iron and Metal Works, to
believe his father desired. After ob
taining the required paper Nossen
signed his father's name, it is said, and
presented the check to the City and
County Bank, where he received the
coin.
The elder JCossen was consulted when
the check was found to be spurious,
but he refused to interfere.

Louise Langdon serves as an admirable
foil for Byron's makeup. The term
"dude" is a misfit for Byron.
The three Floods, acrobats, are
clever. They are good tumblers and
have an arrangement of acts that adds
fun to their athletic business.
Quigg, Mackey and Nlckerson play
well on trombones, cornets, saxophones
and xylophones. They are also fun
makers in less degree. They complete
the list of the new people of the week.
The dancing Mitchells, and Dorothy
Keaton, with her concert banjo per

Kenton performed a new series of

BRIDEGROOM ARRESTED
ON MOTHER'S COMPLAINT
William Scatena ' and His
Wife Jailed on Charge
of Vagrancy
The course of William Scatena's true
love is running very rough at present.
The son of the prominent commission
merchant of this city found himself
torn, last night from his bride of less
than a week and landed in Jail on a
warrant charging him with vagrancy.
The fact that he was shortly afterward
joined In his incarceration by his bride
brought little comfort, because she, too,
was arrested on a similar charge. To
make the pair's misery complete they
had been arrested on a warrant signed
by Mrs. L. Scatena, mother of the bride
groom and reluctant mother-in-law of
the bride. IBSnSgaagaaS
It is surmised that Mrs. Scatena, the
elder, is none too happy herself, for the
arrest which 6he had planned and ac
complished was intended to prevent the
wedding, which, unknown to her, had
taken place last Monday in Oakland.
Her son had taken as wife Rose Davis,
a dancing girl from the California
dance hall on Pacific street. The
mother knew her son was enamored of
the belle of the ball and made up her
mind to break off the romance which
started on Pacific street even if she
had to put her son in jail to do It. So
the warrant was issued and last even-
Ing, as the happy couple were discuss
ing the savory viands of a Broadway
restaurant they were swooped down
upon by \u25a0 Patrolmen Sullivan and Dro
lette. The warrant charging vagrancy
was shoved unceremoniously between
the bridegroom's nose and his plato-of
steaming spaghetti. So the feast ended.
At the central station there was a
tearful leave-taking and the bride hur
ried away to get balL Meantime. Pa
trolman Sullivan drifted out and for
got to leave the warrant, so Scatena
could not be booked, neither oould he
be admitted to bail, and for the same
reason neither could he leave. Search
failed to find Patrolman Sullivan, and,
when the bridegroom's impatience was
worn to a frazzle, his young wife ap
peared again. But she, too, was under
arrest.
Mrs. Scatena was having her time
of revenge. She had Just learned that
her precautions had been, In vain, and
that she had closed the jail door after
the damage had been wrought. She
learned, in short, of the quiet Oakland
wedding. The police "picked U p*« the
bride and booked her for vagrancy, too.
Dan Scatena, a cousin of the bride
groom, understands the impulses of
love and tlnfferposed : between the un
happy brjde.and the wrath of an un
relenting mother. He secured Rose's
release on $25 cash ball. At last re
ports he was looking for Patrolman
Sullivan, in whose pocket reposed the
warrant for the arrest of .the waiting
-bridegroom, who, until the document Is
recovered, was doomed to remain In
jail.
William Scatena,' a*- victim of Cupid
turned loose on the Barbary Coast, is
the son of the wealthy II Scatena of
L. Ecatena & Co., well known and
prominent in the local Italian colony.

THE SAN FRAffCISCO CALL, MONDAY; MA^ 4,, 1907.
WILL STORM THEATER AND
SUPPRESS BOLD OUTRAGE
UPON THE IRISH PEOPLE
United Societies Hold Mass
Meeting and Excoriate
Davis Managers *
PLAN WAR ON PLAY
Public Insults to Women
Are to Be Stamped Out
by Radical Measures
Wrathful over the presentation at
the Davis Theater of a loathsome char
acter supposed to represent an Irish
woman in a degraded- state of intoxi
cation, members of the convention of
the United Irish Societies decided yes
terday to visit the playhouse In a body
on a date yet to be fixed and put an
jend by force to what they branded as
an insult to their race.
At a mass meeting held yesterday
afternoon at the Knights of the Red
Branch Hall, in Mission street, the in
dignation was so great that a general
raid on the Davis Theater would have
materialized last night had it* not been
learned that it was too late to secure
tickets for the crowd.
If Sam Davis and the members of the
Kolb and Dill theatrical company had
been present at the meeting they prob
ably would have concluded to close
shop until a more respectable farce
could have been secured and made
ready for presentation. .
The convention finally adjourned
with the understanding that all the
male members should remain as a com
mittee to discuss plans for stopping the
outrage, but the women present refused
to leave.
At a former meeting of the conven
tion a committee had been appointed to
visit the various theaters in the city
and ask the managers to eliminate any
thing that would reflect upon the Irish
people. The committee was met with
courtesy in every place, but the ob
jectionable play at the Davis had ap
peared about that time and tho man
agement, while it agreed to modify
the play, failed to remove all the ob
jectionable features. For one night,
according to the report of the com
mittee, the play had been modified to
such an extent that the committee
agreed to withdraw its objections, but
Saturday night the coarse features, it
was claimed, had been reinstated. .
The objectionable feature of the play
was fully described at the convention.
Ben Dillon appears dressed as an Irish
woman who drinks whisky by mistake
until she is thoroughly intoxicated.
While in this condition she staggers
about the stage, a disgusting figure,
hugging a bottle to her breast. Some
of the women at yesterday's meeting
had visited the theater Saturday night,
and one of them in a strong speech
said: f \u25a0/\,:;:rsy
"The play is not only degrading in
every way, but it is an insult to the
virtue, of Irish women."
After a number of speakers, Including
John J. Moriarity, T. J. Mellott, T. P.
O'Dowd and James ConllfT, had der
nounced the play at the- Davis as an
outrage. Chairman John P. Allen an
nounced that he would increase the
committee on theaters to every male
member of the convention and asked
that a meeting of the committee be
held immediately after the adjourn
ment of the general meeting.
T. F. Alford presided at the meeting
of the committee and soon after it
convened John P. Allen took the floor
and said be understood that the ob
jectionable play was billed to run for
another week, and as the concessions
made to the committee had not proved
plrmanent he believed something more
titan simple requests was necessary to
put an end to the degrading repre
sentation. .
"I believe we should . all go to the
Davis Theater tonight, scatter our
selves about the place and each act at
the proper time as best suits him,"
said Allen.
"I make it a motion, Mr. Chairman,"
said George Lowe, "that we go in a body
to the theater tonight and use our
lungs to the best effect. • If this does
not have the proper effect," I think we
should go on the stage, if necessary."
Before the motion was put to a vote
It was decided that tickets could not
be secured for last night and an amend
ment to the motion was passed to the
effect that the committee should meet
at 7:30 tonight and decide on a. proper
time to go to the Davis Theater and
stop the play. An effort will be made
to keep the management of the theater
in Ignorance regarding the night se
lected.

One of . the daintiest and prettiest. of
the young women of the Mission high
school Is the heroine' of a romance
which began' during the earthquake of
last April,' culminated tne week follow
ing In a marriage In Redwood City and
now develops another' Interesting chap-!*
ter. ... ; •
Recently it was announced In a mod
est notice • published in the [ San Fran
cisco papers that Miss Ethel Oat,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John: Oat of
619 Capp street, was married Just after
the earthquake to Pe.ter Lowrle, son
of John M. Lowrie, an employe of the
Custom House, living at" 87 > Pierce
street.: '\u25a0\u25a0 \u25a0 : ;•' • \u25a0
Somehow": this notice was so small
and unassuming that few of Miss Oat's
school companions noticed It, >and had
they done so they would: have -laughed
at the idea that it was their classmate,
tne Ethel Oat who had studied her les
sons beside them and had taken part
in the classroom exercises' up to two
months ago. They did not -dream that
she was Mrs. Peter Lowrie and that she
had, been entitled to that awe-inspiring
"Mrs." ever since the last week of
April. 1906.
Four weeks ago another principal in
the' romance appeared upon- the scene.
This was Miss Lowrie, who spends most
of .her" time pulling the,; fuzzy little
boots from her pink toes and in trying
to find out what kind i of <»• world she
has arrived in, .any way. \u0084
"It was just one of those 'earthquake
marriages," 1 said the big sister of the"
little woman whose honeymoon was
spent in the schoolroom.. . ' •
And Mrs. .Qat. the grandmother of
the tiny , miss with the fuzzy boots in
the next room" explained that' the mar
riage hadbeen kept ; secret ,so far as
the general public was concerned be
cause of the youth of the couple.
"But we are both old for our ages,"
put in Mrs. Peter Lowrie.
Aside from these remarks the fam
ily declined to discuss the affair.
.Lowrie had been a student In- the
Mission High School before the dis
aster of April and It Is said that both
were members' of school fraternities.
According to some of the teachers it
was the fraternity that brought r them
together, as their courting must have
been done outside of the school on ac
count.of the strict rules of Principal
Joseph O'Connor- \u0084
Yourtg Lowrle was a. member of the
baseball team and popular with the
boys who leaned toward athletics, but
that he had won one of the prettiest
of the girls of the school for his wife
was not suspected by his companions.
Mrs. Lowrie ' continued to absorb
mathematics, literature, .languages and
the" other things. that girls usually try
to learn before they embark upon tho
sterner, duties of ; life, making rapid
progress in her studies. Her work was
marked by Principal O'Connor^and he
was one of the most surprised of all to
hear that she had w>und time^to ac
quire a husband with all her other
duties. * *
Ypung Lowrie left the school Just be
fore the earthquake and did nofreturn
when the. excitement ' of the disaster
had passed and school was resumed.
Instead he set about the serious busi
ness of making a home for his school
girl wife. - '

Chopin Cradle Song
Gently Treated fey
RosentHal -
James Crawford
Morlz Rosenthal's playing of the
Chopin berceuse .was !, one of the ' niimr
bers most vigorously, applauded; by 'the
assemblage yesterday \u25a0»v» v afternoon -in
Christian Science Hall. Although" the
cradle song made lighter' draft , upon
his technical equipment than did either
the barcarolleor the waltz with which
It 'was;, bracketed, . Jit Was supreme In
appeal to the musical elect. The bar
carolle ; was played excellently, with
beauty of tone and nuance,' and the
waltz was brightly and , elegantly done,
but the berceuse came. from the instru
ment in a flow of liquid 'melody that
reflected '.soul in the manipulation of
the- keys. It convinced me that* the
"Little Giant. is gigantic in something
besides executive capacity— that he not
only ; fully ,recognizes the essential "mu
sical value , of . a composition but can
give it due respect in his interpreta
tion. . ;
That same berceuse is utilized for a
love duet in the opera of "Chopin," re
cently; produced by the Lambardi
Italian company, where it is no less of
a misfit than: the waltz theme invested
In a storm scene— than ' almost j the en
tire score ,of the opera, in fact. As
played yesterday by Rosenthal. ) none
of Its fundamental loveliness was sac
rificed.' There was complete charm in
his touch and valuations of tone.
Beethoven's Sonata, op. 109, opened
the recital, and was played with under
standing and beauty. Schumann's "Car
neval" was the- second number, and
while It disclosed excellent contrasts,
beautiful phrasing, form and mastery,,
there were parts which could have been
done better. In the finale the tempo
was increased from presto to some-,
thing more than rapid, and, of course,
the . digital dexterity that produced
such a whirlwind of harmony provoked
a hurricane of plaudits.
,VAt'the Fountain,", a melodic gem by
Davldoff, was received with applause
that compelled a repeat, and the final
number,' Llzst's fantasie on Mozart's
"Don Giovanni" themes, got the inter
pretation that ho other pianist than
Rosenthal could give it. He pass«d over
a succession of difficulties
with faultless technical ease, doing
with- octaves what virtuosi of no mean
prominence, would hesitate to do with
scales. 7 . Tempo! Well, the tempo was
exclusively Rosenthal"s.

FIREMAN SAVES LIFE OF
MAN WALKING IN SLEEP
John Mitchell, Uses His Own
Body to Break Fall of
Young Somnambulist
To the unflinching bravery and* good
Judgment of John J. Mitchell, driver of
the Post-street chemical engine, Har
old McLoon, who lives 'at 1859 Post
street, owes his life. McLoon is sub
ject to somnambulism and early yes
terday morning was taken with a
walking spell. He clambered out of his
bed and made his way to a window in
the front of the house on the second
story. He put his feet through the
window, and then, despite severe cuts
caused by the broken glass, crawled
through the opening and walked along
the edge of a narrow sill, to. the horror
of several early morning passersby who
saw his plight. Mitchell was among
those who noticed the strange antics of
the sleeping man,, and, when he ob
served McLoon step, off, into space.
Jumped under the man and broke the
fall by using his stalwart shoulders as
a buffer. McLoon's only injuries were
a broken kneecap and several . bruises.
AIV who witnessed the brave feat were
loud in their praises of Mitchell. '
