Hassard Short Christian Dent .....Lewis BroufMon Pee .........i.............riorence Martin Montgomery Hawkea .. .Frank nurbcclc Jerr ..................... .H. nroxea Smith The Chichester family Is In difficulties. It Is also In the Adelphi Thcntre-or will be tonight and that accounts for the rather unusual behavior of these English aristocrats. "When tho news arrives of tha loss of their Invested fortune, there Is naturally only one thing to do depend on tho son as financial savior. By the standards of county life In England aa wo meet It In tho theatre, this means an advantageous marriage. And considering the mental calibre of Alarlc Chichester It Is a very fortunate, solution. It's still more fortunate thnt Peg arrives about this time, not only to act as the other party to this marriage, but to supply a living to the Chlchosters whllo they wait For tho heroine of "Peg o' My Ilenrt" Is a little Irish-American girl, who combines Impetuous and raggamufdnly qualities with ft neat llttlo Income for anybody who shelters and educates her. And tho Inevltablo result, as Mr. Hartley Manners works It out, Is that the Chlchestcrs Jump at the chanco to llvo oft Peg and then twit her and snub her and generally mis treat her because Bhe likes to lug an Irish terrier and violent Irish accont around with her. Now, If the Chlcheaters nre of tho stage stagey, and If tho way Peg returns good for evil by saving the daughter from a love affair -with a married man Is a little moro like well-built comedy than real life, there Ib still a great deal In this exceedingly popular comedy to account for Its exceeding popularity. Tho principal thing la Peg, with her tongUe and her dog. Tho last two ad juncts unlto to produce many vory human little comments on the ll'o about them. A comparison of the white poodle-thing In Miss Chichester's lap with the shnFgy, dear, delightful "Mlchnel" brings out tho observation that "thnt thing nevor iwuld be President of tho United States," i.nd tho explanation that "Michael" barks at it "because ho thinks It's a rabbit." Warm-hearted, Impetuous Peg rushes on through the play seeing things with the cjes of democratic youth nnd comment ing on them with a frankness that may be Impolite, but, at any rate, 'h human and amusing. As Florence j artln haB played Peg In neighboring cities and as she will doubtless play her tonight at tho Adelphi, sho Is the life of the play. There arc some other pleasant features to be recorded. One of these Is delight ful II. Rooves Smith's delightful .Terry, and another Is tho nay Peg wins and ueds this friend of tho family nnd only spot of light nnd hope In the gloom of England's snobbery. Two other plncrs of tho original cast spread considerable delight In their wakes. One Is Tetcr Bas sett, most perfect of outlets. The other Is Hasfcard Short, who succeeds In making Alarlc both a cad and n man. The law jers, maids and Chichester fcmnles, who complete the cast, nre no more to bo Ig nored than the excellent solid wood loom that frames them with a tasteful reality. "Peg' has come to Philadelphia very late In her young life, and hundreds of reviewers have already explained Just why this simple and unpretentious piece should have proved so popular. For all their sarcasms at Mr. Manners' notions of the English urlstocincy, tho fact re mains that the play Is wU en with skill In dialogue, set nnd ncle" In Just the right If.v of actualltj and mot thiough with gleams of kindly, rpossuilng hu manity. "Peg o' My Heart" brings the comfortable conventionality of our older comedies up to date. Here in Philadelphia This evening tho Extension Players a name of rather startling Impoit If it weien't for the fact that they nre under the direction of tho University Extension Society will present a trlplo bill at Wltherspoon Hall. Tho novelty of the pieces to be given lifts tho venture out of the ordinary field of amateur acting. This evening there will be John Kendrick Bangs' "Proposal Under Difficulties"; 'The Stepmother," a satiric comedy by Arnold Bennett, and "Sabotage," a re markable little piece from tho Grand. Qulgnnl in Paris, acted for the first time In America. Tho bill for March 12 Is as Interesting, with George Mtddleton's "Em bers" and Stanley Houghton's "Dear De parted" and "Fancy Fre." Needless to say tho Interest of the University Exten sion Society in the event will not prevent the acceptance of money from any one who wants to get In. Alia Nazlmova and "War Brides," by Marlon Craig Wentwortb, one of the most etartllngly successful playlets ever pre GEORGE WASHINGTON HERE IN MANY GUISES Two Dozen Philadelphians Bear That Name and Follow Varied Lines of Activity. There- are two dozen Georga WashlnB tons In Philadelphia. It Is only fitting that this city should have an excess of George 'Washlngtona In view of a number of events which happened In and around 621 Chestnut street. Thero was an Inci dent there In 1776 with which Wellington was closely affiliated, and ho was also connected with affairs In Germantown and thereabouts. As new Idols are destroyed every day by high-priced Investigators who fight the truth, with flowery phrases, soma one may eventually rise and declare that there was no Revolution or any Wash ington, If they do, the George Wash ingtons sprinkled around Philadelphia Will Hte In righteous Indignation Patriotism didn't affect the energy of the 2-1 aeorge. Washington's here. Twetvr of them aro laborers, one Is a barber, an other a. bootblack, and thero Is a mln lster, a puddler, a, porter and a. presl dent. It can be seen, therefore, that they could readily establish a community of their own Jf necessary. The laborers could do the hard work, they could be khaved and ehlned by the barber and the bootblack, ha,ve dinners served by the Walter, receive spiritual advice from th "rgyman and lie judiciously ruled by the president Borne of the Georges are very versa tile. One of them, a NegTO, who lives Rear Wth and locust, streets, Is a white washer and furnishes muslo for all occa Ions. When there Is nothing doing In Whitewashing and harmony, he Is an un oertaker'a assistant, and also does a little paperhanglng. which, of course, doesn't Werfere -with his IHUe restaurant As for George Washington Smiths and Gsorg Washington Joneses, there Is no 4 at piera In tfro directory and they're U ral patriots.

Over In New York ' After a disheartening try-out In Boston Inet fall, where nobody was very much Impressed by It, "The Trap" has been revamped for Broadway consumption. Tho consumption should occupy a very short time, If tho coldness of tho critics Is to be depended on. Originally a vnudovlllo playlet by Richard Harding Davis, It has been supplied with throe more Rets by Jules Eckert Goodman. The Times de scribes Its substance as 'a Yukon Past and the Atalklng ghost of an Illegal mar rlairc, an unpromising mine claim sud denly converted Into enormous wealth, a blackmailer trailing his easy victims down from Alaska to Now York, a revol ver fired from behind a curtain by a woman's hand and a man taking the btamo upon himself."

Old Guard Democratic leaders, It de veloped yesterday, wore hit particularly hard by the Governor's veto of the 50.000 for extra legislative employes, for which provision' had been made in the deficiency bill. The Democrats were to have re ceUed from the Hepubllcan Organization about a dozen good-paylng places In both branches had the J50.000 Item been al .lowed to stand. Now the Democrats feel that they have been "eold-brlcked." Kor they supported the Organization In voting a return to the old-time "slate" committee, Under the rules of the 1913 session, tha Democrats received automatically nPrJPottl?"a' Share of the patronage. This time they were told that If they supported the Or- . -. ..

But the Governor vetoed the $50,000; o that not only Organization, but aUo Democratic followers were sorely disappointed, More than a dozen Democrats who had been promised places went to Harris, burg expecting to receive the plums when the Governor signed the bill. They spent money for railroad fare and hotel bills and now will have to pay their fares bacH home.

This will mark Its Initial presentation nny where In the world. The picture was staged In Rome amid the original mir roundlngs of the famous story. Tho photoplay Is unusually timely In that It shows scenes that have recently figured in tho Italian enrthciunkes.

Loury. gen eral manager of tho Lubln Company, to nn lmulrj as to whether his companj would continue the rcleaso of seilal stories. "The series and the serial have becomo as important In tho picture busi ness as they aro In the magazine world and should occupy the samo relation to other forms of releases as U borno b Instalment stories to the other features of good magazines. It was to meet an obvious need nnd In compliance with n strong domand that the Lubln Company released, and this Information will be Adventurer,' In 15 single-reel Instal ments, one each. "cck. Of course, wo hnd nn exceptionally good story pro duced by a star cast, but the success of the serial exceeded een our expectations, and most omphatlcally confirmed our theory that a serial should be released In single-reel Instalments, and should not be drawn out to undue length. "I may say here that a great mnn per sons fall to realize how vitally Important It Is that a serial be a really good story. Of course. It Is most desirable that every subject, whether It bo a half-reel or five reels, be a good story, but should It un fortunntely happen that a house shows one film without particular strength, nt permanent harm Is done It is soon over with and good stories, which have pre ceded and will immediately follow, will cause It to bo forgotten It Is n passing Incident- On the other hand. If a serial story Is poor, people will actually keep away from the house showing It. "VV have learned much through experience with our two Instalment stories already released, and this lnfoimatlon will be applied to the advantage of the third serial, which will Immediately follow, 'Patsy Bolivar.' But Just at this time I do not wish to go Into details concerning the new subject, beyond saying that it will consist of 15 single-reel Instalments, released at the rate of one each week, that It will bo produced by an excep tionally strong cast of popular players, and that It was written by Emmett Campbell Hall. The title of the new eertal Is 'The Road o' Strife.' " Miss Dorcas J. Haas la at It again, with the third Instalment of her movie poem, which follows: A DnEAM.

XVo can not have Qeraldlno Farrar too often, we cannot have rrloquale Amato too often for our taste. And wo cannot havo too many new operas If we nre not lo stul tify ourselves with eternal repetitions of that horrlblo nightmare, tho standard repertoire. (Because even n nightmare becomes stupid If If can bo predicted.) Critical opinion and popular pleasure are somewhat at variance In New York concerning Umberto Giordano's score for "Mme, Bang-Oene," but there stems to be no question concerning the adapta tion of Rnrdou'n brilliant comedy and no reservations concerning the Interpret ation given to It on Monday, January 25, 1915, when it had Its premiere It would be possible to give at this thn reports of that first performance, wherefrom a Judgment could be formed. But precisely this should not bo done, because It Is highly doslrnble that Philadelphians grow Invotcrate In tho habit of tenting all new operatlo things, ae well as contented with the things which are good. Cer tainly no one wishes to dispossess opern of Ita glorious favoritos. Equally sure It Is that If wo do not patrontie what Is new, even when the new things turn out unhappily, there will be no ndvance for us. The Metropolitan In lis announcements do not liernld Giordano's opera as the greatest of the century. They aro satis fled with tho simple statemont that It Is a noteworthy, work nnd affords a pleas urable evening. ItMs for us to pass final Judgment upon IL And by that token, It In for tis to so hear, observe and be come capable of Judgment.
