THE DAILY CAPITA!. JOURNAL. SALEM, OREGON, MONDAY. JULY 8. 1914.
FIVE RED CROSS NEARING FIFTIETH BIRTHDAY Batnrday, August 22, Will B the Half. Century Hark of the Bed Cross Treaty at Geneva. Saturday, August 22, 1914, will be the fiftieth anniversary of the adop tion of the Red Cross treaty or the Treaty of Geneva. Reviewing the history of the tied Cross as a world-wide institution, an editorial in the American Red Cross Magazine for July will say in part: "Fifty years have rolled by since tie holding of that first international con vention in Geneva, Switzerland, when the Red Cross treaty was adopted. That was on August 22, 1813 1. For a half century the humanitarian arms of the civilized nations of the world have been marching to the relief of distress ed peoples under the banner of the red cross on a white ground. Almost every where human beings exist today the Red Cross is recognized as the insignia of mercy, succor and neutrality. "Partly due to the work of the Unit ed States sanitary commission is safe guarding the health and alleviating the suffering of the sick and wounded dur ing the civil war, conferences were held in Geneva in 18(K1 and 1864, at which first 14, then 25 countries were repre sented, out of which grew the organ ization and recognition of permanent Red Cross societies throughout the world. Field agents of the United States sanitary commission subsequent to the convention of 18G4 wero tile first relief workers to ne the red cross sign and flag in actual service. "In this second conference the ac tions of the convention of 1863 were re viewed and the Rod Cross treaty, pro posing a new rule of international law, was entered into. The United States was represented by her minister, Mr. George C. Fogg, mid by Mr. Charles S. P. Bowles, the Uiiropeau agent of the sanitary commission. According to these gentlemen, the documents and statistics telling of the practical effects of the efforts ef the sanitary commis sion in preventing and alleviating suf fering during the civil war proved of the utmost value to the second Geneva congress, and Mr. Bowles goes so far as to eay that but for these visiblo demon strations of the I enefits of organized relief work this congress probably would have been a failure. "The resolutions and recommenda tions may be suimuaiized as follows: "First That each government ex tend its sanction, authority and pro tection to sanitary commissions and their relief corps. "Second That in time of war the privilege of neutrality be extended to ambulances, military hospitals, officials and attaches of the medical services, regulars and volunteers, to nurses and to the inhabitants in the theater of war who should receive and care for tho wounded in their houses. "Third Thut the universal insignia PROBABLE FRANCE j WILL TAKE A HAND Paris, July 6. The chamber oi dep uties today called a secret session for tomorrow to discuss government parti cipation in the Panama-Pacific exposi tion at San Francisco. A committee to day reported favorably for a govern nient appropriation and the chamber was expected to adopt the report. Paris newspapers today urged trades men to reconsider their nnnnsitinn to gcvernment participant. "If the fair is boycotted," said one newspaper, "France will be eutting off htr nose to SDite her face. If Fr!rh- mcp desire to retaliate srrninst Ameri ca's turiff law, they ought to tr some iniii; eise, as non-participation certain ly would prove a boomerang. : GOSSIP ABOUT THE I NEW YORK THEATERS "The Miracle" Haa 1100,000 Back of It Put Up Br Men Worth $200,. 000,000.

The cross itself was not otherwise describ ed." . , New York, July 0. Announcement ; was made today that all preliminary ar rangements Dave been completed for the wordless mystery spectacle, "The Miraele", which will" be given in Madi son Square Gar.lcn next winter. "The Miracle", by Dr. Karl Veil moeller, has just concluded a remark ably successful engagement in the Circus Schumann, one of the largest ampitheatres in the world, at Berlin. After an engagement in St. Petersburg, the spectacle will be brought here. "Ine Miracle" is based on the legen of a nun who forsook, her vows and went out into the world for seven ! years, only to return and be finally redeemed. The original European cast and production is to be seen here. This cast consists of 2,000 trained players. including a choir of 900 voices and au orchestra of 200. The production repre sents an outlay of nearly half a mil lion dollars, and is one of the most stupendous theatrical undertakings known. To make the things possible In New i'ork. it was necessary to interest some of New York's wealthiest men and women in the enterprise. A fund ef 100,000 was subscribed by some of tno chief factors in the Metropolitan Opera Company, among them being Otto H. Kahn, Mrs. Cornelius Vandcrbilt, Mrs. J. Borden Ilarriman, flanence II. Mac key, Benjamin II. Guinness, Daniel Guggenheim, Hugo Reisinger and others. Tho beckers of "The Miracle" are not seeking financial reward but are lending their support because of the I moral uplift of the play. Max Bab-' inoil, managing director of Mile. Anna 1 Pavowa, the Russian Danseuse, has been chosen managing director of the Amer ican production. The combined fin ancial resources of those behind the production total more than $200,000,000. There will be seven or more "Potash & Perlmutter" road shows next season, according to the producers. To secure competent "P. & P.'s" to lead these shows, a number of Hebrew comedians began last Monday to work on the parts now essayed by Barney Bernard and Alex C'arr, who created them in the "Potash & Perlmutter" show at the Cuban theatre. While Bernard and Carr are taking a much needed rest, the men who will play "P. & P." on the road, will take turns leading at the Cohan. Among these are Harry First and Phil White, Julian Rose and Julius Taiuien, Jules Jordon and Lew Welch, Sam Liebort and Paul Burns, Meyer Harris and Nat Jerome, and Arthur Ross and Lew I Williams. There will be mighty few of the mil lions whom Joe Weber has made laugh, You!!

There is one regret, It is that Weber and his similarly famous partner Fields, may not, as was hoped, do some of their work for the moving pictures. A. U. Woods almost bad the comedy team lined up to a piece, 'High Cost of Liv ing," before the films but Weber's re tirement, so the latter says, puts, an end to the hope. It was just like Weber, by the way, who will agree with him thnt thirty eight years of stage life is enough, .loe Weber is retiring to assume the ninniigo inent of his rather extensive theatrical business. The famous comedian has been doing comedy through the wholo of his thirty-eight years in the game, to temper his rather doleful announce ment of retiring with a dash, of fun. In retiring from tho stage Weber de clared he would not retire as world's champion of the Dutch-Irish astime challenges, ho explained, from any of tlw other (1,000,(100 or more four-flushers who :aim to hold the title of world's champion pinochle player. "Step Lively", the three act farce by John Emerson and Robert Baker, which had its premiere at Atlantic City's Appollo Theatre a woek or two ago, ought to fill a large vacant spot in aumsementdom. At times, it is true, there is a bur lesque tinge to the piece, by reason of its multiplicity of impossible situation", but all iu all it is a moving piece ail thoroughly enjoyable. It ought to be ik hit on Broadway next fall, or sooner, if (hoy bring it here early. Convicts in tho eastern penitentiary of Pennsylvania are largely for stat- I wide prohibition. This will be regarf ied by some as expert testimony.
