IF John McCormack, the Irish Apollo, had sung “The Last Rose of Sum
mer” or “Believe Mo, If All Those Endearing Young Charms,” his au
dience at the Palace Ballroom last night simply would have gone wild
with enthusiasm. As it was he came in for many a round of thunderous
applause, most of all, and deservedy so. I believe, for an encore piece,
"Mother o’ Mine.” In this 'bong his wonderfully sweet and flexible tenor
voice found ample opportunity to manifest Itself in all the breadth of its
glorious register.
Very nearly the same volume of applause was bostowud for bis sing
ing of “Molly Brannigan."
Why?
Heaven knows!
It is a humorous song of the type that goes Well with a Jig, but sounds
Strangely out of place in the company of "Deeper and Deeper Still” and
"Waft Her, Angels,” from Handel's "Jephtha," or of "In Fanaid s Grove,”
a grandly pathetic ancient Irish ballad.
In stature, countenance and music, McCormack reminds me of Apollo,
the god of the Muses. Can you imagine Apollo singing "Moly Brannigan?”
And "The Last Rose” and “Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young
Charms” ignored and neglected!
However, the tremendous applause with which McCormack was re
warded for his “Molly Brannigan," perhaps proves the wisdom of his choice
and the folly of my complaint. For. after all, “nothing succeeds like mie

"Elucevan le Stelle." from Puccini’s “La Tosca,” McCormack showed
his power as an operatic singer, and, on the other hand. In "I Hear You
falling,’” given as an encore, he furnished a striking illustration of the
auhHmity with which a sentimental song may he instinct when Interpreted
by fi true master. Which leads me to express another regret, namely, that
Instead of “Good Night," which McCormack gave as a tlnal encore, be did
not sing ’Home. Sweet Home." These may be silly notions of mine; but,
somehow, I cannot help thinking that simple and old as axe the songs
which I have mentioned under the caption of “Desiderata, they possess a
perennial appeal and reach deeper Into the heart than almost an yoi? their
more modern rivals. Nevertheless, I must admit, “Good Night” also, espe
clftllv as sung by McCormack, Is a great heart and soul-elevating song. *
ft ft •
FOR one thing, above all, Mr. McCormack, thanks! There Is not a word
In whatever you sing but reaches the ear ns distinct and cl&ar as if
spoken with most pedantic precision.
Will you believe It? Never In nty life, until 1 heard McCortr.ack last
night, had I ever been able to make out the meaning of the words uttered
by any singer, unless I happened to know the words beforehand. And what
an exquisite pleasure It Is to have your mind thus informed by the singer
himself instead of having to guess at the meaning of the note» from the
emotions which they arouse!
* • •
BETWEEN songs McCormack’s voice had short periods of rest. Those
were filled up with charming violin solos by Donald McBetith. By far
the best of them, T thought, was Schumann's "Traeumerel," given as an
encore. Mr. McBeath has traveled the world over with Mr. McCormack,
an has likewise Vincent O'Brien, their piano accompanist.

The adventures of Marshall Neilan,

laughter and smiles to thousands of

He began playing in the theatrical
world when he was only nine years
old, receiving his first chance to
"make good before the public” at the

then he has been in stock and on the

Horace Clark, a young evangelist
in a -wild Western town, is well liked
for his pleasant manner and splendid
physical prowess by the majority of
the inhabitants. His life is interest
ing and happy until he happens to
reform Tim Downs, leader of the
worst element of gangsters. Tim and
his wife Mary are most grateful to
the young “sky pilot,” but the gang
is cut to the quick and decides on
vengeance.
One night Horace is waylaid by a
villainous assault, and in the scrim
mage one of the gang is killed. Hor
ace Is arrested. His lawyer brother,
Arthur, defends him, but he is con
victed on tlie perjured testimony of
“Hat," one of the gangsters, and sent
to prison.
The Downs help him to escape, and
he goes away into the mountains.
Here he almost starves until he is
rescued by Hale, a mountaineer, who
takes him to his cabin, where he is
fed and tenderly cared for. Hale’s
daughter Hester is very kind to him,
and the two young people become
great friends. Horace discovers that
Hale is a moonshiner, and pleads
with him to give up the illicit busi
ness. So effective are Ills appeals
that at last the old man consents,
hut in destroying the liquor on hund
he accidentally sets fire to it, and
meets a sudden and tragic death.
This precipitates the conuiuce. and
Horace and Hester are soon married
and living happily tucked away in
their snug mountain home.
One day, yenroi after, the “Rat,”
who has become" ft prominent poli
tician by now, is hunting in the
mountains, and finds Horace, whom
he recognizes immediately as the es
caped prisoner, and determines to
send him back to Jail. Horace is
consc'ous of the recognition, and he
and his wife are distracted by fear.
The “Hat” has sought out the
local justice of the peace, none other
than Horace's brother Arthur, to
whom lie tells his tale. Arthur says
he knows tho man—though not ex
plaining the relationship between
them—and donles that lie Is the per
son whom the “Rat” thinks lie is.
To prove this he accompanies the. pol
itician to Horace’s home, looks close
ly at his brother, and then declares
to the “Rat:” "You’re quite mis
taken. This mountaineer is not tho
escaped prisoner you suspected he
was.” The baffled poliiician departs
apologetically, and Arthur, with (i
warm handclasp, returns to the
town, happily consclons of his suc
cess in saving Ills brother this time,
though he had failed at first.

This film of the Civil War involves
ho much disguising, spying.ind traitor

sure Just which side is which and who
Is on tt. It Is localized In the South
and the Union and Confederate arm

to the other. There is a vlllnin or

The pretty girl seems to have a
Southern brother with n penchant for
spying and she acquires a Northern
sweetheart similarly characterized.
When he is caught as a soy and
brought to her home for punishment,
the action erystallz.es into more defi

Anti-Tuberculosis Association
May Take Up Examination
of Workers.
The necessity for medical examina
tion of factory employes was urged
by Ernest D. Easton, executive secre
tary of the Newark Anti-Tuberculosis
Association, yesterday, at tho annual
meeting of the organization. Mr.
Easton added this probably would be
| the next'work undertaken by the so
ciety.
He announced that a special meet
ing for the consideration of the sub
ject would be held in the Board of
Trade rooms on May <1 next, at which
Dr. Theodore B. Sachs, of Chicago,
and Dr. Eugene I,. Fisk, of the Life
Extension Institute, New York, wdll
speak. He stated that this medical
examination would ficsult in the de
tection of disease in its early stage
and might prevent much.slckness and
economic waste.
' "This is the close of the fifth year’s
work of the association, and It may be
appropriate to pause a moment and
take account of stock,” said Secretary
Easton. "During this time various
kinds of machinery have been put in
motion. It is proper that we should
consider not only what has been ac
complished by our own hands, but
what has been taken over by other
agencies.
"There has been an awakening of
the public to the necessity of hospitals
for advanced cases. The Essex County
Hospital at Soho was opened In July,
1912, with ninety-six beds. During the
past year the Legislature has enabled
the freeholders to increase the ca
pacity at Soho to relieve the already
congested condition at that institu
tion and to provide for the long wait
ing list. The State Sanitarium at
Crien Gardner has gradually Increased
its number of beds until now over 200
are available for incipient cases.
Newark Sanitarium, at Verona, and
the Newark City Hospital have main
tained their usual number of beds.
"Another important work which the
association performed has been to
act ns a clearing house for all tuber
culosis cases in the city, to see that
they are examined at the clinics, their
temperatures taken for a week if
necessary and the necessary Instruc
tion given to get away to a sanato
rium or hospital. The follow-up work
for all discharged cases from sana
toriums is very important to see that
they do not lapse back into their old
condition. The timely visit in homes
where deaths have occurred (where
not under our supervision) has pre
vented further infection In the fam
ily. To do all of this work brings the
association in touch with practically
every public and private agency In
the city, county and State.
"Open-air education for tubercu
lous and anaemic children has been
ono of our proudest achievements.
When the need of and the beneficial
result from this kind of treatment
were demonstrated at Oluyday camp
and shown to the Hoard or Education
the latter gladly consented to take
over this work. We now have an all
year round open-air school for about
fifty tuberculous children and three
specially equipped classrooms for the
anaemic. Although the classes are
ungraded, teachers, pupils and par
ents alike are enthusiastic over the
results obtained. A few principals
are conducting open-air rooms for
regular classes, keeping the temper
ature about 55 degrees. The lessons
have been acquired with ease and a
thirst for fresh ,air has been created
which has reacted spot! the home.
Teachers and children have been con
spicuously free from colds. The arti
ficial system in most of our public
schools does not give adequate ven
tilation.
"Another important work has been
the gathering up of the anaemic chil
dren from tuberculous homes or from
the open air school, and sending them
away for a month’s vacation in the
country. A month or so in the coun
try. away from city dust laden with
germs of all kinds, with plenty of
fresh vegetables ami good food and
an abundance of fresh air, may re
store the body to normal conditions.
Last summer about 100 children en
joyed a month at Harmlngdale, In a
country home, under the supervision
cf our nurses.
“Juanita” a Love Song
of Fifty Years Ago
In that soft twilight, or us the
deeper shadows gather, the song uf
“Juanita” always seems to soothe.
The gifted authoress of this popular
song was Mrs. Norton, a grand
daughter of the famous Richard
Brinsley Sherldarf born In England
In 1808. She married young, but It
proved an unhappy union, and a di
vorce suit followed, in which the
composer of "Juanita” vindicated!
herself und led In a crusade against
the almost barbaric dlsab'Ilttes which
English law and practise then Im
posed upon an English wife, becom
ing virtually the founder of the mili
tant suffrage movement in England
today. Her songs of “Bingen on the
Ilh'ne" and "Juanita” were the most
populnr. She died in 1877, and lived to
hear the echoes of her plaintive
"Juanita” come to her from nearly
every civilized country In the world.
This celebrated melody Is to be
found In "Heart Songs”—the unrival
ed song collection now placed before

PINCHOT TELLS OF
10W IDEALS
Party's Personnel Its Greatest
Asset, He Declares at Ber
gen Dinner.
ISPeelfll to the Evening Star.j
HACKENSACK, April 15. — “The
greatest asset of the Progressive
• party is its personnel.” said Amos
Pinchot, at the fourth annual dollar
dinner of the Bergen County Progres
sives, here, last night. He and George
I,. Record, of Jersey City, were the
principal speakers. There were about
250 diners.
Continuing, Mr. Pinchot said:
“When our party was formed in 1912
thousands of patriotic men and women
joined us who had never taken an
active part in politics before, and
who hoped to find in the Progressive
party a home for their ideals and
aspirations and an opportunity to
work on patriotic, rather than party
lines.
Hoot of Economic Injustice.
"Throughout all time the principal
or private monopoly of the control
by a few of the things which all men
must buy In order to live has been
the root of economic Injustice and
political corruption. It is Intolerable
that a few men In our community, In
order to control the piece-fixing
power in some commodity necessary
to the people should assume the con
trol of the government. This is what
has happened and is happening to
day in every State, In every city and
town.
"Out of this state of facts, I say,
was born the cause of the Progres
sive party, or for that matter of any
party standing for democracy and
Justice. If we fall to see this causu
and make a strong and earnest fight
for it, our party will fail. It will
deserve to fail. Our party must be
come the acknowledged party of
abolition of the monopoly principle
in American lif<—the party of funda
mental, political and economic jus
tice.”
Record on "Speelrtl Privilege.”
G. D. Record said in part:
"The Progressive movement has
not yet attacked the special privilege
that inheres In our social and indus
trial system. The Progressive party
as a party has no program which
anybody can understand for the de
struction of privilege. The Republi
can party makes no profession of any
intention to destroy privileges. The
Democratic party has no program
for the destruction of privileges.
"The remedy is to abolish nil taxes
upon buildings. Improvements and
persona] property, and all indirect
taxes of every kind, and to make it
unprofitable to hold land out for use
or to charge rent for use of land, by
raising all revenues by a single tax
upon land values; to take over and
operate the railroads and other public
utilities of the country; to make
patents open to public use upon the
payment of a moderate roya'ty to be
fixed by the government and paid to
the patentee, and to establish a bank
ing system upon the flexible Scotch
and Canadian principle of asset cur
rency.” _
Walter C. Zabriskie, the Progres
sive county chairman, presided. Pro
gressive State Chairman Frank B.
Jess, or Camden; former Senator
Everett Colby, former Assemblyman
James G. Blauvelt, Mayor Mark M.
Fagan, of Jersey City; Henry C.
Whitehead, and Edmund B. Osborne
were among the invited.

Hills Vetoed.
The Governor vetoed these bills and
made the following comment:
"Assembly 269, this bill proposes
to amend section ten of chapter 265,
of the laws of 1910, but the act In
question contains only two sections j
The mistake makes the bill bad.
"Senate 209, the notice of intention !
to introduce this bill required by law
described,certain territory as intend
ed to be included in the new borough
of Keansburg. The description in the
bii! now before me differs from that
contained in tlie published notice und
the attorney-general advises that the
bi’l is therefore void.
"Senate 223. In my judgment this
bill is unconstitutional because of the
classification attemj ted. Second
class cities under our law Include all
those having a population of between
12.000 and 1,70,006, Chapter 108 of the
laws of 1913 applies to nil second-class
cities and is practically the same as
this bill, providing for recorders or
police justices In all such cities. I
can see no legnl reason for dividing
these cities Into two classes, one
above and the other below 50,000, and
dealing differently with the recorders
or police justices therein.
"The bill is also defective in detail
In the following particulars: No pro
vision is made for fees of witnesses
to attend trials, nor for summoning
them; no provision is made for an
allegation to be made against the de
fendant upon which he can be tried;
no provision is made for enforcing a
judgment or pointing out to whom a
line imposed shall be paid.”
The Governor also vetoed House
bill No. 8, which was Introduced by
Assemblyman Branegan, and repeals
personal registration of voters in
townships containing less than 6,000
inhabitants.
