"But I would not undertake to appear again in classic drama with out her. "She has always been the major part of the combination and without her the labor of making new productions would be too great and the reward too doubt ful." George Broadhurst's latest flight to fancy, "What Money Can't Buy," has been'produced at the 48th Street theater. It is a romantic tale kid in a small European kingdom and inevitably re minds one of Anthony Hope. There are no asphyxiating gases and sanguinary baronet charges in "What Money Can't Buy." It is a love tale. The fiiincess of a kingdom is pledged to a ducatless prince. An American financier is engaged in building a steam railroad through her father's domains and the financier's son and the prince? are soon deeply in love. Because the American is "a commoner" the princess sorrowfully gives him up. But the little state is in money diffi culties. On the morrow a mortgage held by bankers for $SO.0O0,60O falls due and on the same day the son and the prince ly fiance of his sweetheart are to fight a duel. Of course the son wins the fight and the American father easily takes up the mortgage. Then the prince jilts the princess for a pretty dancer and the American boy makes the princess his bride. The best scene in the play is where the father is awaiting the outcome of his son's duel. George Faweett played" the financier in a finished manner. As the princess Anne Meredith was captivating, while Sydney Shield was a convincing dancer. Calvin Thomas was a buoyant American young man, and Robert" Cain was as princely as could be wished. "Sherlock Holmes" still has its thrills. William Gillette proied this at the Em pire theater Monday eening, for the audience waited with as much breath lessness to catch the next step in the inductive reasoning by which the great detectne outwits the arch-criminal, Prof. Morianty, as it did when this same actor first brought out the piece in the Garrkk 16 years ago. Conan Doyle's stories in thi melo dramatic form were again revived in 1912. The old excitement and original frehnes never -fail. The plot has to do with the recovery of certain papers likely to compromise a roval personage. In places it is a bit hazy. But Mr. Gillette's pictur esque force and ineisiveness overcome all difficulties. Joseph Brennan plays the professor, while Edward Mordaunt is Mr. Larrabee. Ellen Freeman is an at tractive Alice Faulkner. Elsie Janis in a play built to fit her and well built for that purpose is the offering at the George M. Cohan theater. The title given by the playwrights, Paul Dickey and Charles W. Goddard, is "Mi Information," a name which re veals little. Behind the name is a comic crook plot, mixed with melodrama and vaudeville, and all suited to allow Miss Janis to show off her varied talents. Miss Jams starts off as a Western Union boy in a raincoat and later she is seen tracking the stolen necklace in a gay Parisian restaurant, where she takes the part of a London "nut." She does two captivating dances which caused her to become such a London favorite last spring. She mimics de lightfully and sings a little. Besides Miss Janis there is Maurice Farkoa. who sings three songs well, Irene Bordoni, Eugene Revere, Julia Brans and Francis t. McGinn, all worth going to see. & "The Bargain," also called "The New Shi lock." is a strong drama by Her man Scheffauer, now the attraction at the Comedy theater. It depicts the struggles and sorrows of a Jewish pawn broker, a shrewd bargainer, hut a man of integrity, of ideals and of what he believed and purposed should be a model family life. But his son turned speculator ami embezzled the funds of the firm that employed him. stealing at last from the stock of his father's store. His daugh ter fell in love with a Gentile.

Strong satiric line- fall from the lips of the characters. "The Jen's law is justice. The Christian's law is loe, and see what comes of it," cries the old pawnbroker. "I know that in America the husband counts for nothing." he sneers. He rails against modern stand ards, vet in the end he tolerates them. He gives a father's blessing to his daughter who marries a Gentile. He weeps with iov at the news that his son is working in" the wheat fields of Can ada to earn enough to pay his debt. He gives ungrudging welcome to the wife, who comes back after three months and confesses that she has never succeeded in even seeing a stage. The slow softening of the old man s heart is tenderly wrought by the play wright, and denoted with subtle art by Louis Caltert. A young actress kissed his hand in the play, and again when thev were called before the curtain to gether and he insisted upon her taking a call alone. It was Josephine Victor, whose sincere and powerful acting as the pawnbroker's daughter won warm applause. Miss Dorothy Donnelly played the wife with the keen dramatic intel ligence she brings to all her character izations. Forrest Winant was the pawn broker's son, Eugene O'Brien the Chris tian Touth and John Flood his father, all worthy portrayals. ew York's latest dance favorite is the Arabian beauty. Sahary-Djeli. who is appearing in "A" World of Pleasure" at the Winter garden. At the London hippodrome, where she danced for an hour at each performance, and in other European countries, she is known as "Heaven's Kiss." Being an Arabian, Sahary-Djeli clings to the customs and superstitions of that country. She prefers Oriental dress chieflv on account of the bizarre colors and the loooenew of the costumes, but upon her arival here a few weeks ago she appeared on the steamship pier at tired m the latest Paris creation. But she declared it was an ordeal which she went through merely to please her American managers.
