CLIMAX TOO DEEP FOR AN ORPHEUM AUDIENCE "The Wise Rabbi" a Gem Not Intended | For the Careless By WALTER ANTHONY j Audiences and not bookworms keep j plays alive. That's a postulate which | most folk will stand upon; and no doubt | it's true. Also it's true that only the j best plays live. At least we like to: think so; and if that's agreed upon j also, the case for the defendant, Mr. j Audience, seems pretty.well established. ; He Is conceded to be safe and sane. ! Besides, a critic isn't sent to a play house*—much less to a vaudeville play- In.use— to review the audience, and it i* priggish to sit up and tell the people that they laughed In the wrong place, failed to detect finesse, neglected to applaud Intelligently, or otherwise de ported themselves, with respect to the offering, in an improper or unapprecla tlve manner. ■ ;--^- The chances are that the audience Is right. At least. its dictum has been regarded, in spite of Mr. Vanderbilt's positive and contrary convictions on the subject, as the voice of authority, and it is not to be damned. I am making my apologies in ad vance. I, think the audience at the Orpheum yesterday was very stupid. Perhaps It bought its tickets in advance and coveted the sunshine outside, or perhaps its Sunday dinner was too plethoric, or perhaps its Sunday girl was in Santa Cruz, or maybe it was stormy Saturday night. Anyway, it didn't "get" William H. Thompson's sketch, "The Wise Rabbi." "Silence," said Thompson as the climax utterance of his one word speech to the hateful Russian prince—and the audience made a personal matter of it. The rabbi had to convince Prince Gortcliakoff of the cruel injustice to the Jews of the impending edict which was to banish them from Russia and confis cate their property. The aged rabbi failed to secure the Interview until the peasant gardener on the prince's grounds succeeded In securing for him "just a word." PLOT OF. THE PLAY The prince is bent on the extermina tion of the race he hates. If he speaks in the meeting of the council and votes, his speech and vote will settle It, and the Jews will be robbed of their homes. The rabbi, with dumb eloquence, pleads, shows data, papers, letters, replies to taunts with mimetic hands waving thought like spring branches dropping blossoms. "Come," come," says the prince. "I gave you a word. What is it? If it is ingenious enough I'll heed." And then Thompson, who knows how to draw a picture with himself robed like a Shy lock with the wolf left out. raises his hand, and, in the pose of a prophet, says: "Silence!" And the audience made a personal matter of It. The prince was as good as his word, so the playlet's plot. Ingeniously de signed to exhibit the skill of the actor like a "left hand etude" made for a Paderewskl, ended happily— It was silent happiness. No use talking. The Sunday afternoon audience did not like "The Wise Rabbi." .; However, It had made up In advance for any subsequent indifference by Its zeal In behalf of the "wonder girls," Molly Moller, Jeanle May, et al; of whose charms I subscribe myself also a devoted admirer. They dance queerly upon their backs, their toot sies elevated at an angle acutely In teresting, dally with bells the while they pedal fast. The tune thus coaxed was appropriate. It was "Rings on Her Fingers and Bells on Her Toes." Later the young women, right side up, danced again, and gracefully, and Dan Burke, whose principal office seems to be to remain on the stage and do something while a change of wardrobe is being arranged by his pretty asso ciates, proved his right to be their teacher, so graceful was his fancy step ping. His comedy was not so funny. There was an aged, gibbering joke, to the telling of which Cain is said to have fallen out of his cradle. It might be suppressed with credit. I do not object to it because it is risque. It isn't It is just too old to be stirred decently. . OTHER FUNMAKERS Fay, the two Coleys and Fay have a singing, dancing and comedy stunt, in which the singing and danciag were best, the comedy dialogue painful, but two comedy effects, with •-props," were ludicrous. Patsy Doyle stands In one spot and tells new jokes. He is fairly successful in his effortless effort to live up to his description, "the droll humorist" •'. :'*^.;},:"-' The holdover acts are provided by Edward Lavine, the spectacular juggler, who is the best of his kind; Clifford Walker, whose quiet monologue Is re freshing for a second week; the Lorch family of acrobats, who are great in quantity and quality, and Gerald Griffin in the class A farce, "Other People's Money." 'The bill, as an entirety, Is as good as last week's, and that is above average. LAUNDRY WORKER DIES i FROM INJURY BY AUTO Indicted Driver Eludes Capture, Having Neglected Victim Eugene Place, the laundry worker who was I struck by an automobile driven by Harold Morse, a demonstra tor, the evening of June 30, at Bush street and Van Ness avenue, died yes terday morning at the French hospital. Morse is said to have struck Place while driving at an excessive rate of speed and did not'stop to investigate the man's Injuries. An indictment was voted against Morse by the grand jury, but he. has not been located. Place leaves a widow and four children. His skull was frac tured. , .'.- '.

MONEY WORTH AT EMPRESS THRICE Big Bill of Bully Acts Pleases the Large Audiences at Playhouse- ■ At all three performances in the Empress theater yesterday, big audi ences applauded the acts and got their moneys worth. ' Charles W. Bowser and company in a clever comedy playlet "Superstition," were welcomed. The piece Is full of laughs and action. There Isn't any dull moment in It. Spencer Kelly and Marlon Wilder made a big : hit with their "melodious act" They proved to be of the best kind of musical en tertainers. "■■"•-'.'">. - Other acts on the long bill which won the approval of the audience were "The Billposter and the Lithograph," a clever pantomime skit. Murray Liv ingston and cast In a character study, "The Man From Italy" and the "Three Brownies," who are quick on their feet and lively In their chatter and Emerald and Dupree, whose ; mixture called "Hot Scotch," proved to everybody's liking. / ,-; Extravaganza at Idora Park - Over 10,000 spectators witnessed the new-free extravaganza in the Idora park amphitheater last evening and applauded the spectacle enthusias tically. • It Is called the, "Gypsy Merry Widow" and introduces characters and musical hits from the "Bohemian Girl" and the ever popular "Merry Widow." The scenic and costume investiture is the most elaborate of any spectacle yet presented. The electrical effects are of great beauty. The plots of the two famous light operas have been Ingeniously woven together Into a half hour ; opera. Blanche Mehaffey, the soloist with Weber's band, makes a most acceptable Arline, and her rendition of "I Dreamt I Dwelt in .Marble, Halls" and "Velia" is excellent . .""--Vv :'?-:-V As Sonla, the merry widow, Ruble Leslie makes one of the hits of the show. .In the famous ; waltz with Prince Danilo (Carlton Chase), the duo received many encores. Chase sings "I'm Going to Maxim's"; with much finish and his dancing is graceful.- . J. R. Llddy as Thaddeus and Arnold Mac Donald as Devllshoof, the leader of the Gypsy band, are good. -"- : Thirty girls appear as gypsys, one of their numerous pretty dances be ing the Marsovlan. .'_•■-.'

The Chamber of Commerce has sent a petition to Sec retary of the Treasury Franklin Mc- Veagh urging that the vessel be as signed to San Francisco, "that the his toric significance of her presence in San Francisco'and the constant lesson of. patriotism It would convey would abundantly justify the government and the treasury department In complying with this request."

July 23.—The race classification of the 32,295 deaths In California in 1910 is as follows: White 30,673, or 94.7 per cent; Chine? J 692, Japanese ii). negro 433, Indian 156. The percentage of white as compared with 94.7 for 1910 was 94.6'f0r 1909. Throughout the five year period the deaths of Chinese occurred mainly in San Francisco and suburbs and in the central interior valley. The deaths of Japanese were mostly in the central interior valley and in Los Angeles; the deaths of negroes largely in Los Angeles alone, and the deaths of In dians almost wholly In the far north. The percentage of white in 1910 as 96. for cancer, 96.7 for heart disease, 90.8 for cancer, 96.7 for heart disease, 95.4 for Bright's disease and 95.4 also k. for diptheria and croup. The propor-™ tion of white dead was likewise above the average for sundry diseases of the nervous respiratory and digestive sys tems*? '■:'.,.'■ ' V On the other hand the percentage . *>£ white was relatively low for-typhoid fever, 93.1, and for tuberculosis of the lungs only 90.6. The explanation is that typhoid fever kills many Japa nese and pulmonary tuberculosis main Chinese and negroes. In 1910, for In stance, the percentage of Japanese was no less than 3.8 for typhoid fever, against only 1.4 for all causes.' The percentage of Chinese was as great as 4.5 for tuberculosis of the lungs, against,merely 2.1 for all causes, and the percentage of negro was likewise 2.2 for pulmonary tuberculosis, against 1.3 for all causes. Figures for the preceding four years present similar contrasts. California' statistics thus show clearly that Japanese are pecu liarly subject to typhoid fever and that Chinese and negroes furnish many vic tims for the "great white plague."
