idea of this farce. He wrote to make
people laugh. He has done better than
that. He has brought out a human
play, entirely plausible, with real flesh
and blood men and women as the
characters. The strength of the play
lies in its very possibility. All the
scenes take place on a modern train,
Pullman cars of the latest types being
shown. The berths are made up, and
the verisimilitude is carried to such
an extent that the audience practically
travels with the players.
It can be seen .then, why the farce
has been dubbed a "Pullman Carni
val" in three sections. Mr. Savage,
who has earned the reputation of nev
er doing things by halves, has given
the nlay a production that makes it
rank as noteworthy example of real
and the two jump into the fray for all
the spoils there is in it. Of course.
they do not succeed in getting any
real money but they do get into trou
ble: Mutt is made President and car
ries his honors with the dignity be
fitting his reputation. Jeff is made his
"cabjet," whatever that may be. and
the two are free from strife and an
noyance until their imposition is dis
covered. One can imagine the com
plications that follow. In the end ev
erything is righted and Jeff and Mutt
return to civilization where they re
new their adventures. Laughs are
abundant throughout, the situations
are funny and the action is spirited
enough to keep everybody in exceed
ingly good humor.
The music, which has been specially
composed for the piece, is said to be
catchy and tuneful. There are four
teen numbers. The scenic investi
ture is first-class and the other effects
commensurate with the policy of Mr.
Hill. Matinees will be given Tuesday,
Thursday and Saturday.
ism. The motion of the train is shown,
the whistles and bells are heard, the
noise of the air-bralfes is apparent, and
altogether the sensation is of being
on a fast-flying modern train.
There is a plot and a counterplot. A
young army officer, who must catch a
transport in San Francisco on a cer
tain date to go to the Philippines, can
not bear the idea of leaving the girl
he loves for his three years' term of
service, and persuades her to elope
with him at the last moment. Time
does rot allow for a marriage service,
and they take chanct.s of finding a
minister aboard the train, to perform
the ceremony. The amusing compli
cations are many ,and serve to pro
vide an evening of unbounded merri
ment.

no doubt be given a warm reception
by his many admirers in this city, who,
by the way, are legion. Wilson's rich
clear voice is like wine-it improves
with age. His songs always seem
sweeter than ever, and it is safe to
guess that when he presents "A Ger
man Prince" there will be a great de
mand for "Her Smile," one of the new
songs written and composed by Mr.
Wilson, especially for this production.
Manager Sidney R. Ellis is credited
with having provided a strong support
ing company, and this fact alone
should be enough to assure a fine per
formance without mentioning the
many innovations that have been made
in the play.
Surrounded by an exceptionally
strong cast in a new singing comedy
entitled 'A German Prince," which has
proved the great hit of his career, Al.
H. Wilson, the German dialect come
dian coes to 'the anphine Theatre
next week. In "A German Prince,"
the author hbas rst of all written a
laughing and lasting success, and in
the seeoad place provided the most
popular of German comedians with a
sultablq vehicle--an achievement
rather dlicult to accomplish. Ample
opportunity Is allowed for the intro
duction by Mr. Wilson of several new
songs that are among the best that he
has ye. composed. Special mention
he made o "Her 8mile" and
