TIIE OMAHA DAILY BEE: SPNDAY. MAY 1, 1004.
It ABOUT PLAYS, PLAYERS AND PLAYHOUSES Omaha' theetrlcal year Is dwindling i tnents are furnished during the heated term. None of these place will te opened to the public before the end of the month, but ell are being- furnished up. ready for the season. About the most Important change that will be made la at Mintwi, where an Omaha, company will talis hold of the management, and endeavor to make the place even more attractive thaa It has ever been. T. J. O'Brien will be the caterer and W. J. Byrne, the well-known treasurer of the Orpheum, will have the direction of the amusement feature. It la the plan to give open-air vaudeville a. thorough trial. down toward 11 end, but still holds a num ber of good things for the people who like to go to the theater. Bom of the most Important engagements of the eeaaon are yet to be filled, anl It Is quite likely that several atara will appear at the Boyd after , the summer stock company hae opened It tnaenient. Net Saturday night will e '' the end of the vaudeville season, for the Orpheum doen:t like to take chances on the good old summer time, and believes that the first week In May la a good time ; to quit. It will make thirty-three week f Of steady work at that house, during which ,' time not a performance ha been missed. . Manager. Relter will go to Ran Francisco . to spend the summer, and will be occu pied with aome of the varloua Interests' of the Orpheum company In the Coast metropolis. It was announced In Chicago last week that a big combination of west ern vaudeville houses had been formed, to Include the Orpheum circuit, the Kohl -Castle house, the Cincinnati, Louisville and St. Louis houses, and others, so that the western vaudeville circuit will prac- - ftcally be one newt wesson . The object Is the same as that of all combinations, to do more business at lose expense. Martin Beck, secretary for the Orpheum company, k will be the European agent for the new combine, and will open a hooking office In London. This ought to give the com bination first call on Ruropean novelties. 5 Mr. Myerfeld hae hitherto looked after that end of the Orphenm's work, his an- . nual trips to Kurope always resulting In n Influx to Amerlra of acrobats and. Jug glers who were well worth the expense of Importing. With Mr. Beck located In London and having the additional pres tige of the great western combination. It ,1s probable that still more of the big set will be brought over for Yankee Inspec tion. " The end of the season was forcibly brought to mind during the week when the Boyd wss closed for five night and the Krug for three, and for two days not even an advance agent wna In town. This Is .- the first breathing spell the "house" forces - have had since last August, and It was a . rathor welcome rest for them. During the daya when the bookings were ripped up by the Chicago disaster, Omaha was get ting aa many aa alx and aeven show a week, the local pre agent and treas . urers were all kept busy, and they got . so used to the strenuous life of that time that they hardly knew what to do with the leisure afforded them during the last week. ' Still another gentle reminder that one season Is ending hn the promise from the eastern managers of productions for next I season. In this the west hag some interest. Aa a rule the eastern success of the pres ent season Is given to the west next, and sometimes It Is even two years before we -can get It on this side of the Mississippi. .Now, the present season Is almost barren - of successes In the theatrical line. Cros , man's "Sweet Kitty Bellalr's Is one. but It will not get out west unless "Belasco make up with the "syndicate" .'gain. By the way nothing has been heard from the eruptive David of late, . en this or any other topic. Kirk LaShelle has ccored a big winner with "The Vlr ginian." and will bring the whole piece west next season; Willie Collier has been "oted a winner In the new Dicky Col play, . 'The Dictator," and xlght there the lists ends. The Sothsrn-Marlowe combina tion iiini next tail, ana ror Bve years these noted star will appear together In classic role. What the others will pro- duo is not even hinted at, even by their managers. Mr. Frobman says he Is look Ing for stuff; all the other say the same thing . and -the chances are that most of ,th old plays will go on again, People out west hare learned that it la a Ion .way from spring to fall, and that promises made when the grass Is first coming up are likely to wither with h fierce heat of summer. 8 till another sign pf coming summer Is the activity of the men who control the several resorts at which open air amuse- Coaslaat Events. What promises to be one of the most delightful entertainments of the aeason, will be the appearance here of Viola Allen aa Viola In "Twelfth Night" at the Boyd on Tuesday evening, May a. Of -Shakespeare's comedies there is not one the peer of "Twelfth Night," of which William Winter wrote: "There is as much interesting human nature In Twelfth Night' aa there Is In sny comedy that was1 ever written." Halllwell, the fsmous Shakespearian scholar, was equally enthusiastic, saying of this delightful play, that It Is the "per fection of English comedy, and the most fascinating In the language." The produc tion and company to present "Twelfth Night," promises to be one of the very best that has been seen In recent time. It requires no lively stretch of the Imagination to conjure up Miss Allen as a most charming Viola and one long to linger In the memory of the theatre-goer. Miss Allen's supporting companies and productions have, since becoming a "star," been of the first order of excellence. In sn otherwise barren season, Richard Minefield, whose only monotony Is success, has made two of the greatest triumphs of his career. Any other artist would have been gratified with Mansfield's great suc cess as Prince Karl H el n rich In "Old Heidelberg," and would have continued to play uninterruptedly for several seasons. Not so Mansfield. Success is a spur to him. He has the restless energy of genius. He at once set about preparing another massive production and composing a new character. His creation cf "Ivan the Terrible" was first revealed on March I at the New Amsterdam theater and again his work was crowned with a triumph. This role has been critically classified as the most superb characterisation, not only of this season or of a decade, but of Mansfield's career, and many enthusi astically hailed Ivan the only dramatic masterpiece on an epic plane our atage has seen In a generation. Then Mansfield comes tls week to the Boyd theater. He will bring his entire company of 106 artists and will be seen In his complete production of "Ivan the Terrible." On Friday evening, May , be will present "Ivan the Terrible," en Saturday at the matinee he will play "Beau Brummell," and on Saturday evening he will present "Old Heidelberg." Seats for the entire engagement go on sale Mon day morning. "Over Niagara Falls," Rowland Cllf ford's big melo-dramatlc production, will be the attraction at the Krug the first half of the week, opening with the matinee today. In this play several scenes and Ideas new to the stage will be presented Lake Chautauqua la e'aborutely pictured, also the Interior of the Pan-American Indian congress, and the world famous cataract, Niagara, la depicted- Eleotriolty Is an important factor, and without its aid a picture that Is so perfect a to be startling could never have been produced. The ingenuity of the scenic artist and carpenter has also been taxed, and several Inventions new to the stage are the result. The scenes of Louis N. Parker's greatest play, "The Cardinal," which will be seen it the Krug- theater the laat half of the week, opening Thursday night, are laid in Rome In the fifteenth century, and In everything that pertains to staging and costuming there Is magnificence without lavish display and good taste and an In timate knowledge of the period Is displayed. The Interest of ths play centers about the confession of murder made by Strossl to Cardinal de Medici. The oardlnal's brother, Gulllano, Is accused, tried and convicted of the crime, while the prince of the church la rendered powerless in his behalf through the secrecy the church Imposes upon those who hear the confessions of penitents. The daughter of the murdered men Is betrothed to Gulllano, and desired as a wife by the real murderer. The first three acts are de voted to the full development of this situa tion and to the efforts of the cardinal to Induce Stroszl to reveal his culpability. Falling In this the cardinal has recourse to strategy, and assuming madness leads Strossl to mske an admission of his crime In the presence St the Roman minister of Justice. The last act Is given up to the direct development of this denoument. The Colby family Is among the prominent features that will contribute to the vaude ville bill at the Orpheum for the week be ginning with a matinee today. There are four of them, father, mother and two chil dren. Mr. and Mra. Colby, besides playing a number of Instruments, are vocally ac complished. The work of the youngsters la reported aa remarkable. Master Frsnk has a tenor voice with the freshness of youth with whleh he renders popular bal lad. Another feature of his turn is an Imitation of Creatore, the Italian band master. Little Miss Byrle sings a number of comic songs and performs some difllcult dancing. A comedy sketch entitled "The Blfurceted Qlrl," will be presented by W. H. Murphy and Blanch Nichols In hich they Introduce a lot of specialty business. The Nichols sisters, styled the "Kentucky Belles," are a pair of mirth makers who black up and In darky fashion sing, dance and spring funny dialogue. A novelty from the Olympla, PhHs, Is prom ised In Qlllo's Artesta, a mechanical figure that sits at an easel and draws pictures and does things in a manner that places the audience In a quandary as to whether It Is an automaton or a human being. T. W. Eckert and Emma Berg will sing "The Land of Two Moons," an operatic sketch. Mr. Eckert will also give some musical Imitations on the piano. Al Lawrence Is a versatile mimic. He sings and tells com ical stories. Aronson and Ashton are equilibrists. An entire change of klno drome pictures will be shown. This will be the last vaudeville program of the season, the closing date being Saturday night.

WRITING DRAMA FOR EMPEROR Is to Deal with the Period Bad Characters of the Franco Prussia War. (Copyright, 104, by Press Publishing Co.) BERLIN, April 80.-(New York World Cablegram?-Special Telegram.) Emperor William has given another commission to Captain Joseph Lauff, the dramatist of the HohenaolleRis. The drama Is to be modern and will em brace a no less eventful time than the years 1870 and 1871, the time of the Franco- Prussian war, with William I as the hero. Around him ar his mghty paladins, Bis marck, Von Moltke, Von Roon and the "Red Prince," Frederick Charles. It Is believed the play will assume rather the form of living pictures, with a suitable text for each picture leading up to Its successor. For example, one picture will be the pro claiming of King William as emperor of Versailles. He will be shown In the his toric room of the, palace with all his gen erals around him. Lauff will write a po etic accompaniment to this scene. The intervals between the ten scenes will be filled In with music, in part based on patriotic airs and in part written by Em peror William on wholly new themes. It Is not the emperor's Intention to give the work to the public, but to reserve It for state and military festal occasslons. Years sgo the writer of this column wrote a number of articles urging the necessity of an Auditorium where musical events could be given and where teachers could rent studios, and where recltsls could be placed, as well as all of those things of that nature which are planned throughout the season. Now that Omaha's new Auditorium le practically finished, a building to which one can point with pride, we must not let the thought of that other building go by default. The Auditorium, aS built, has been sr- ranged to do the greatest good to ths gfeat- est number; the men whose efforts have made ths big building evolve from the dream of man's brain, Into the great struc. ture of stone, steel. Iron snd enduring fabric which we rejoice to behold, have planned according to the general welfare. Perhaps we musical workers were wrong In trying to advance tho Idea of a com posite building. It might have been a species of "class legislation." But now the Auditorium is, we may say. completed. The best, most energetic, most successful business men of Omaha have turned out their pockets and paid up. But, thanks be to Ood, the Omaha bus! ness men often turn out their pocket and as a natural result they get filled us quick as they get empty. Such a thing commercial poverty Is unknown In Omaha. (Kansas City papers Dleaxe copy.) He that fllleth his pocket, salth the philosopher, shall have it robbed, and he that emptleth his pocket shall not be able to keep it empty. But. you say, this Is false doctrine; for. verily you would make men spendthrifts. How freely we use that word and how little we think of Its meaning. It Is a word whose meaning we can scarcely guess at because It seems to come to us from Ice land, and we are not posted In the details of that dialect. Take it to pieces and what do you find? "One who spends thrift," not one who spends money. One who dissipates the thrift or the thriving of oneself. One who throws away his opportunities. Mr. Car negie is not a spendthrift, although he does empty his pockets freely. Locally speaking, Count Crelghton Is not a spend thrift, although his money has been freely "let go of," and so It goes. But the lasy musician who wastes his time continually Is a spendthrift. The artistic person who squanders his gifts, he Indeed is a spend thrift. The student who is so anxious to "do things," and so utterly Indifferent about "knowing how" to do them. Is a spendthrift. And they will live and cle !n a mental and spiritual poor-house.

What we want Is to keep hold of the thought of that building which you and I have talked about so often. Auditorium Annex, if you wish; but above all, a place where twenty or thirty teachers can have studios and thus get In closer touch with each other, and I feel convinced that there are at least a dosen teachers who are now teaching at home who would gladly seek attractive rooms in such a building. Why, bless your heart, they would have to, In sheer self-defense. If they did not, they would be left out in the cold. And then a recital hall. Chamber's Is now filling a "long-felt." But, In winter, It will scarcely be available, for evening concerts, as Mr. Chambers would be obliged to close the upper hall in the case of any musical event. This would entail a loss which would, of course, have to be atoned for in the price of the rental, making it a high priced luxury. Here1 are some of the places used, In the last few seasons, and to be used yet this season, for such events aa should have been scheduled at a recital hall, seat ing say 600 or 600, and artistically appointed: Kountse Memorial church. First Congregational church. First Presbyterian church. Unity church. j First Methodist church. City hall, sixth floor. Chambers'. Crelghton College auditorium. Keep your eye on "Central Music hall Omaha." (For application as to studio rates, rentals, etc., apply to manager, at the box office, between the hours of 10 and 12.) Buch a building la coming, sure aa fate. You can not stop It. The demand Is here, and Is. almost fully ripe, and Nature has a little way of keeping that old rule, older than Omaha, "Supply and Demand" bob bing up all the time. The construction of the Auditorium has paved the way for It. Let us therefore give thanks for the new Auditorium. And in the shuffling of the pack of down town buildings, going on just now, may we not hope to ses a "trump1 card drop In the way of a Lyceum hall, Central Music hall or something elss on that orderT Soms weeks ago I had ths pleasure of listening to one of the cleverest papers on the subject of "Music" that I have ever heard. It was from the pen of Mr. W. R. Llghton, the well known author of "Sons of Strength" and other bonks, and I take great pleasure In reproducing here a few of the good things he said: Milton Insists that a knowledge of mu sic Is an essential part of a liberal education." "Wa are growing accustomed nowadays to consider a people's understanding and use of the art of music, as one. of the most certain standards for the measurement of its advancement la civilisation." 'Music is not a thing of human Inven tion, save In ths narrowest sense. Man can Invent mualcal Instruments; In the course of tlms. he has brought these to an admirable state of perfection, but with all this, he haa added not one Jot to music It self. He has discovered, but he haa not made." 'The same voice that commanded 'Let there be Light,' commanded also sound. nd established the Inviolable laws of har mony." "We may be very aure that the earlleet use of music was religious, or st least. ceremonial.' Not until a later period, when what we call 'civilization' has blunted his native sensibilities, dose he learn to turn music to frivolous account." Mark ye well these words, student of music, for they are Indeed the words of wisdom: "No simple-hearted, natural man or raoe, living close to the heart of the world, could by any poaslbltlty adopt the abominations of rag-time and such like. That comes when the natural squl Is desensitised, per verted."
