9 SCENE T gon "pig FLE PER Olympic parkore-nn S
“Girl in Taxi” at the Newark,
“Fledermaus” (“The Bat”)
at Olympic Park.
Following the presentation this
week of serious drama. Manager Jo
seph W. Payton has selected a merry
farce for next week's offering. It Is
“The Girl in the Taxi.’’ In its adap
tation New York instead of .Paris is
made the place of action, and two of
the three scenes are laid in a banker’s
residence on Riverside Drive. The
second act represents two adjoining
private dining-rooms at Churchill’s.
The stage setting Is sumptuous and in
strict keeping in every detail. There
will be daily matinees and popular
prices will prevail.
The leading character is Bertie
Stewart, the banker's son, just turned
21. His father, himself a gay boy, Is
determined to keep the youth se
cluded from the follies of Broadway
and therefore restricts him to an in
come of $5 a week. One night Bertie’s
cousin, who comes to New York from
Philadelphia for treatment for an as
sumed cough, sneaks out of the bank
er’s house to meet a girl he had pre
viously encountered in a taxi. Bertie
gets there first, has a supper party
with the fair lady and begins to en
joy himself.
In the next private dining-room,
supping with some ladles of the
chorus, is Bertie's father, who gen
erously Invites in the people next
door. There is a scene in which both
father and son are pretty badly dis
comfited, particularly as the seventh
husband of the “girl" puts in an ap
pearance, but all proves harmless and
everything is straightened out In the
last act.
In this farce, which is sprightly
without being salacious, Neal Byrne
will play the youthful Bertie, Miss
Mabelle Estelle Is the “girl,” Claude
Payton has the role of the surprised
father, and the latter’s nephew, Percy
Peters, will be taken by Arthur Jar
rett. All the other parts will be well
cast, among those appearing being
Harry B. Roche and Miss Lillian
Johann Strauss' opera-farce, "Die
Fledermaus” ("The Bat”), a work
never included in the summer reper
toire at Olympic Park, will be pro
duced by the Olympic Park Opera
Company next Monday, inaugurating
the sixth consecutive week of the
present season.
"Die Fledermaus" was produced at
the New York CaBlno last season un
der the title of "The Merry Countess/'
proving one of the distinct successes
of the year on Broadway. Owing to
the modern character of the opera it
permits of the Interpolation of spe
cial features and numbers, and, as
was the case in the Casino produc
tion, the Olympic Park company will
add several unique dancing features
to the array of excellent material
provided by the composer. Foremost
among these will be a new tango
dance, to be introduced by Miss Lau
ra Jaffray and David Romaine. Miss
Blanche Morrison will also add an
especially arranged interpolated num
The cast for this production will
consist of the following players: Miss
Blanche Morrison as Rosalinda. Ar
thur Burckly as Gabriel Von Eisen
steln, Miss Blanche Chase as Prince
Orloffsky, George Poultney as Dr.
Falke, Overton Moyle as Blind, the
lawyer, and Jack Henderson, as
Frosch, the turnkey.
Hayco, the handcuff expert who
demonstrated his ability at Olympic
Park two years ago. has been espe
cially .engaged as one of the free fea
tures for the vaudeville stage, after
noons and evenings.

ers will entertain at the park tomor
row afternoon and evening, and "first
run" motion picture plays will be
shown each evening. Including Sun
Miss Agnes Del-ane has been
especially engaged as the soloist for
the Olympic Park restaurant cabaret
Miss DeLane will sing each after
noon and evening throughout the
present week.
Another rattling good bill of high
class vaudeville and new motion pic
tures will be seen at the Lyric .Thea
tre during the coming week. Head
ing the list for the first three days
will he Neeman and Mtlley, in a
screaming farce comedy sketch,

will share the bill for the first half
are: The Monards, sensational equi
librists; Joes Wilton, a very funny
comedian; Herbert and Wlllln. black
face comedians; Warden's Novelty
Revue, a novelty song revue, and the
latest photo-plays. For the last half
of the week Maud Orafton and com

In the Field of Politics
Opponents of Edmund B. Osborne
as a Progressive candidate for the
gubernatorial nomination are rejoic
ing that former Senator Everett Col
by has announced his entry into the
Held to oppose the Montclair man.
This is especially welcome news in
the southern part of the State, where
sentiment for Colby is daily growing
stronger among land-owners who will
be hit by Osborne's single tax plat
form plank.
The single tax, in theory,'is the
elimination of levies on all buildings
and other improvements, and owners
of undeveloped areas realize that this
cost, removed from the buildings, will
apply against vacant tracts to the
owners’ disadvantage. The senti
ment In the northern part of the
State, too, is rolling up for Colby as
shown by a recent poll of the Repub
lican voters in Morristown, where, out
of 208 men seven-tenths announced
their willingness to vote for the
former senator.
* * *
Progressives are commending Colby
for his "Look before you leap" policy.
Before he ran for State senator in
1905 he gathered the Republican lead
ers about him at his home in West
Orange, asked them how he stood
around the county, then, after think
ing the situation over, announced
thathe was in the running. He did the
same thing this week, taking counsel
with Andrew Knox, of Hudson; J. A.
Hopkins, of Morristown, Mayor W.
V. Moy, of Plainfield; Judge Adrian
Lyon, of Middlesex; William A. Lord,
Algernon T. Sweeney and Irving K.
Taylor, of Essex; Sheriff William
Bright, of Cape May, and former As
semblyman Frank B. Jess, of Cam
den, and then announcing himself,
after thinking the thing over. His
platform is now being formed, and
will be announced some time next
week at a public meeting.

Rhodabeck has resigned from the

The senator and assemblymen
from Essex are hoping that Acting
Governor Fielder will wait until it is
very much cooler than it is now be
fore calling a special session of the
Legislature. There are two reasons
that necessitate an extra session. One
is the necessity of an act to lift the
embargo on the sale of Newark
leather in Massachusetts and the
other reasons is the doubt in the
Walsh commission act. The situation
concerning the leather must neces
sarily greatly injure Newark leather
manufacturers and their workmen,

First News That Reached Her Was of Victory for Southern
Arms, but This Was Soon Changed to Report That the
Yankees Had Annihilated Her Husband’s Troops.
Widow of George K. Pickett, famous Con
federate General.
When the battle of Gettysburg was
fought I was at my father's home In
Nansemond, a county of \ irginla,
then within the Federal lines. My
suspense was great, for I bade the
general, to whom I was engaged
good-by when he started North with
Lee’s army, and he knew that a battle
was impending.
One July morning I mounted our
old mule, Nebuchadnezzar, and set off
for the Chuckatuck postofflee. On our
way I met some neighbors, one of
whom rushed up to me with face
"We’ve won a great battle In Penn
sylvania; nothing now but to march
into Washington. I know it is a
proud day for the general and for
your uncle, the colonel, and the old
1 bounded into the store where the
postofflee was kept and, not observing
the gloom in the faces of the villagers
gatBsred around, called out:
“Isn’t it glorious news, friends?”
Jimmy Hunter Godwin turned and
“Glorious news? I have just come
from the ferry and the news from the
Yankees stationed at Suffolk is that
they have won a great victory and
that Pickett's division is annihilated.”
Taking my letters, written by the
general on the northward march and
sent by the underground route, I
turned toward home, sick at heart,
reading the letters over and over.
From one of the general’s letters,
written on July 3. just before the
great charge, I read:
“The officers and men are all In
excellent condition, bright and cheer
ful, singing songs and telling stories,
full of hope and courage, inspired
with absolute faith and confidence in
our success.
Though almost exhausted by
marching in the intense heat, I felt
that the exigencies demanded my as
suring Marse Robert (Robert E. Lee)
that my men would be equal to any
thing he might require of them.
"Well, my sweetheart, at 1 o'clock
the awful silence was broken by a
cannon shot and then another, and
then more than a hundred guns shook
the hills from crest to base, an
swered by more than another hun
dred—then absolute silence, then grim
and gruesome, low%spokcn commands
—then the forming of the attacking
"My brave Virginians are to attack
in front. Oh, may God in mercy help
me as he never helped me before!
“I have ridden up to report to Old
Peter (General Longstreet). I shall
give him this letter to mail to you—
oh, my darling, do you feel the love
of my heart, the prayer, as I write
that fatal word? It is almost 3
o’clock. My soul reaches out to
yours. "TOUR SOLDIER."
The next letter was that written on
July 4, the day after the battle. The
general wrote:
"My brave boys were full of hope
and confident of victory ns I led them
forth, forming them in column of at

federals beheld a scene never before

forming in line of battle under their
I very eyes, charging across a space
nearly a mile in length over fields of
waving grain and anon of stubble
and then of smooth expanse—moving ■
with the steadiness of dress parade.
“Well, it Is over now. The battle
Is lost, and-many of us are prisoners,
many are dead, many wounded,
bleeding and dying. Your soldier
lives and mourns, and, but for you,
my darling, he would rather, a mil

his dead, to sleep for all time in an
unknown grave.
General Pickett came up from the
storm of fire and returned to fill in
the thousands of missing names on
the roll-call of Virginia troops. The
vacancies in Virginia hearts and lives
would be lonely and sad.
On the 15th of September, in St.
Paul's Church, amid the chimes of
bells and bugles and the blessings of
the good people to whom my soldier
was a. protector, we were married.
As we went down the aisle loving
words and prayers were showered
upon us, black-robed women saying
as they touched my soldier's hand:
“My boy was with you at Gettys
burg!” sad-faced girls sobbing, "My
brother fell on Cemetery Hill!’ Out
between lines of soldiers we passed,
the bands playing and the bells
On the field of Gettysburg today
stately monuments keep guard over
the dead and over undying memories.
The peace of God dwells in their
silence and reigns among the hills

half a century ago. For that peace

have come to celebrate the welding

Above all else, in reverence and
