Of coarse the reason for these pre posterous early openings is not hard to find, since it lies in the minds of the Broadway managers, and said minds are not as deep as a well nor as wide as Lobster square. These Broadway producers have their next season's pro gram pretty well made up before the close of the current season. They know Just what and just how many plays they are going to offer to the public They also know, by experience, not by judgment that a certain percentage. ri about percent, will be hastiK relesti. d to the limbo or th dt istd and Surplus One Million LIABILITIES .Capital Stock Surplus and Profits Circulation DEPOSITS: IBank Individual.

The manager, therefore, knows that the public he invites in to pass upon his new play, consists largely of out of town folks who appreciate anv effort to entertain them, and that scramr colony of actors and actresses, who for one reason and another, are obliged to remain on or near Broad way through the hot months. Of course this latter contingent never knock a plaj at least not in the sum mer tim it rrnnlrMi ton mnch effrtrt in the first place and in the second 4 place they go to the theater as guests of the manager. As the unwritten code of the profession forbids adverse comment on a play which was wit nessed at the expense of its producer, jou can readily see the advantage of a July production. And then, as a usual thing, the regular newspaper critics are out of town and the press reports are generally supplied by the heroic press agent of the show con cerned. The result of this is that be fore the playgoing people of the city, they who make or unmake a Broad way production, return from their va cations, the new play has built up a favorable reputation and Is out of harm's way. "But supposing it doesn't stand the test when the more discriminating crit icism is turned loose on.it?" one may ask. , "Very well then." we reply, as coolly as possible in this Park Row melting pot.

Turning from these low spirited thoughts, we wipe our perspiring brow and pass on to the contemplation of a pleasant topic that is now the chief di version of the conversationalists along the rialto This is nothing other than a proposittcn to establish a permanent home in New York for the exclusive production of light opera. Such an in stitution as the Gpietv and Daly's in London and the Follies Bergere in Paris. This is a eood idea. The wonder of it is that it hasn't been done before. The answer to that, doubtless, is that theatrical productions in America are more of an individual enterprise than thev a'e hro-d especially in Eng land. Knowing full well the great monetary risks which attend every production, it has come to pass in Lon don that an individual producer Is a thing unheard of Productions are .now put out by s ndicates on the other side, while this lessens the personal profits cf those interested, it does, on the oth er hand, lessen the inroads on the per sonal bank account. If such an enterprise as the London Gaiety is launched here, and it looks as if the launching will be good along about December, it will not be the usual individual affair. A number of prominent Broadway producers will have a hand in the pie And their names are such as inspire confidence that It will be a success. The American IMajtirlicht. Now comes Lee Shubert. just back from dear old I-onoon. who savs that as the scale of European productions Is Being down, that of American plays is going up He states there is a posi tive demand in Eiglard. France and Germany for America nplays. He also annouces that hereafter he will de pend almost ertirely on the native out- rut, being thoroughly disillusioned and disgusted with the things he saw in Europe. "The American playwright has ar rived." 3ays Mr. Shubert. "Not only in New York but in London. Paris and Berlin. And he is getting ready to in vade Vienna and St. Petersburg. Our authors are turning out better plays, not only truer to life but better tech nical!, than the foreign playwrights. There is an increasing demand, espe cially in London, for our productions and it looks as if New Tork in the near future will be the great play market of the world." Of course it was a very hot day. the one on which Mr Shubert arrived from London, and the spectacle of the God dess of Liberty in her cool clothes might have had an undue influence on the manager's conversation But Mr. hbubert is one of the leading producers in menca and if that is the av he fcth about mtrican plaTri'hts v.h in m inner of s, easing should Anier i n pi i wiijjnlo worry?
