EVENING 'OGED&EB PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY rAPRXB 27, li&15:
A Musical Comedy
of the Great War
taut night the American Theatre re
called Itself to the tlnys of the Doutsehcs
Theatre with n musical comedy of (ho
great war. almost fresh from Merlin,
"tmmer Feste- Drurt," Tho only Inter
mediator between Unter den Linden and
Qlrard avenue was Rudolph Christians
admirable little company from tho IrvInK
Place Tlieatre, New York. It was naive
entertainment which la a good thins for
entertainment to be and It wan very Rood
As preliminaries, a speaker before the
curtain took a swlns at grape Juice di
plomacy, and the Herman Consul Rave
two military hows, all nmld the enthusi
asm of a small but earnestly Teutonic
house. Then the curtain went up, with
tho assistance of i n orchestra energetical"
ly and nbly conducted by Victor Wagner
and we gaied upon what one of the come
dians described as "die Junfrau und ill"
JUngfrnu." For wo were In a Swiss
hotel before the war. There wo found u
Frenchman proving the perfidy of his
race by making lovo to a married woman,
the wife of a German. As he did It to n
really charming song. "The tlyes of a
Beautiful Woman," the audience was
nulto willing to forgive him long before
he died In n Belgian sklrmlsh-soo the
third aet-and cleared the lady's charac
ter to the husband, who happened to be
hanging round. The lady herself testified
to her Innocence by Joining tho Ited
In between came a good deal of verv
excellent patriotism and some equally
good humor The Germans In the audi
ence supplied part of the former by not
finding It necessary to advertise their
Inner reverence for their national anthem
by standing up A goodly quantity over
flowed from the stage In speech and
song. The whole company sang of spill
ing the last drop of their blood'for the
Vaterland; and when they rame to tlu-t
magic word, tho comic porter, who hail
Just Joined the army to escapo his wife,
saluted with Impressive solf-consclous-ness.
The patriotism, be It said to the
credit of tho librettists, Hermann Hnller
nnd Willi Wolf, was well mixed with
fun. They rhymed "Submarine" with
"Zeppellne" and served a "spring soup"
to the Boldlcrs which was described ns
"a la Zeppelin mlt Submarine Kloesae."
The comic sergeant gave another dem
onstration of Germany's perfect prepared
ness by hauling out a little French dic
tionary and beginning lessons.
The music was excellent. Walter Hol
lo's score had melody In tho characteris
tic Teutonic-Viennese fashion, running
from waltz through comic ragtime to
military march. Only once did It descend
to a barber shop chord, and the senti
mentality of "Forget Me Not" accounted
Tha performance Itself ran quite ns high
as libretto or music. If not higher. While
Margarets Christians was plquantly beau
tiful and Cenzl Goelzor full of high
spirits," Hans Unterklrchor and ftlchnrd
Feist put some Acting as well ns singing
Into the parts of the rl-al men. But the
comedians were the more rnemorab..'.
for they were thoroughly German, rich,
unctuous. But how could they help it
when thtlr names were Christian Hub and
Kudl Rahe and they had such amusing
samples to distribute as "That's not a
Joke. It's, from Schiller. It's Art." or
"Belgian or no Belgian, what speaks
French is French?"
Probably the best part of thr ovenlng
was tho feeling It gave you of hoiv Berlin
and all Germany, shut In by a ring of
foes. Is really taking the war. This
little bit. half patriotism, half Joke,
brought up tho real Berlin as "Tlpperary"
brings up the real London. But It ajso
brought up by thai very touch of true,
humorous humanity, a netier and keener
realization that, over the water there,
under the shadow of Hill No. 60, real,
ordinary, average men were een then
killing each other, to no purpose but the
sowing of damnable hate.
'The Shepherd of the Hills'
To close the regular season of the Wal
nut and to prepare the minds of its pa
trons for summer stock, the dramatiza
tion of Harold Bell Wright's vastly popu
lar novel. "The Shepherd of the Hills, '
u ' '
t - '' - - ' - ' C
Coming to tho Lyric in "Tonight's
returned to Philadelphia for a second en
gagement. Naturally enough, tho heroine
found hersef In the customary emotional
difficulties, and the shepherd stepped for
ward to straighten matters out with
ready insight nnd advice. And, or course,
thoeo who had seen and liked the play
before got Just about the same pleasure
out of it this time The enjoyment
wasn't In the least troubled by the violent
vituperations of one "highbrow" present,
who said It was "talky" probably ho wi
practicing up for some Bernard Shaw
As for the acting, the worst nf It was
no worso than a piece Is likely to suffer
from In Its second year, whllo Miss Laura
Hill played Sammy Lane, the ward of
tho Matthews, with real skill nnd charm.
The antediluvians of the drama, tho
perennials nf the plat-house, they nro
usually pretty fearsome affairs. "The
Old Homestead." "Wny Down Cast,"
"Ben Hur" and "Uncle Tom's Cabin'
they always entertain their audiences,
the same people go to them arm In
atm again for their annual theatrical de
bauch. But woe to tho ordinary, over
day theatregoer who happens to drop In
to see one of these pieces that have he
conie permnnent, populnr classics. They
have their virtues, hut they aro only the
virtues of the commonplace, nnd nnv
popular drama will supply plenty of
Now nil these reflections are merely to
Introduce the fact that tho theatre hns
at last caught a "repeater" which Is both
a popular play and a good onp, too, "The
Bluo Bird." To add to the novelty of tho
situation It has made Maeterlinck Into
a Broadway succes". Philadelphia learned
nil thH for the third tlmo last night,
when the fairy allegory come hack to
the Lyric for a slnglo week's stay.
Just why the popularity? Well, aside
from the. wisdom of the management In
always keeping nn efficient enst on hand
nnd brushing up the scenery to the
proper state of spectacularness there Is tho
fact to be recorded that "The. Blue Bird"
tells a good story. Thero Is also the fact
that It handles real morals In a cheerful,
henlthv way and treats allegory as If It
were the naturalest thing In tho world
for sugar and milk and such things to go
traveling with any little boy who hap
pens to Indulge In nn adventure. It is
spectncle. dancing, music, story, morals
and a menagerie all rolled Into one. which
l quite enough to account for any
amount of popularity.
The past and present in vaudeville are
linked together at Keith's with James
and Bonnie Thornton and Nora Hayes.
Each was given a warm welcome by the
audience, which showed that It was ap
preciative of the old and the new alike.
Miss Bayes proved as usual that she
deserved the headline position. That con
fidential glance at the people, as though
Bhe knew each one present personally,
and a number of timely songs, "put
over" to make every word count, was the
combination which won her more than a
dozen curtains. In fact, she "stopped the
show" with applause. Mis Bayes was
accompanied by Donald Granlard.
"Jimmy" Thornton and Bonnie had to
follow Miss Bayes, and they held this
"hard spot," as the vaudevlllians call it.
and finished strong.
Bonnie, who said she was 63 years old
last night, made the audience sing- "Annie
Rooney," while she danced as she did
years ago with her dainty parasol. Jimmy
told a bunch of good stories and sang
a medley of his own songs, which went
Just as good as they did 25 years ago.
Nonette, the singing violinist, la actually
worth the price of admission alone. She
roused the audience at the very outset
of the proceedings, Beatrice Herford
won the hearts of all present Immediately
with a personal way of telling stories
as though she were sipping tea during a
social chat. Her act Is a treat to
And there was Harry Fern, of Broad
and Erie avenue, who unfolded a real
character coon In the sketch, "Veterans."
He was creditably assisted by Charles H.
Morrell, a veteran actor of many parts,
Who won favor here In stock many years
ago; John J, Moore, Edward Grimes and
Frank Armstrong. The sketch is full of
laughs and won wann approval.
Tameo Kajlyama did a number of
amazing feats which proved that he could
think four ways at a time. Reading
, from the Evbkinq Ledger, he wrote the
news heading backward and upside
down on a black drop. He also conversed
on different subjects while he wrote with
his back to the Immense "blackboard."
Bart Enrol scored a solid bit In hi
Tetrazzlnl songs and costumes, while the
Lunetta Slaters and the DeMont Trio
were also well received. It'a the season's
best show at Keith's.

ROME, April 2?.
Haifa final demands have been com
municated to Vienna, accompanied by a
communication from I'rlnco von Buelow
stronsly recommending that Austria cede
nil the Trentino to tho line of the river
Isonzo, which In principle already nan
been ncroed to.
Austria's latest offer in said to include
besides tho Immediate occupation of tho
Trentino by Italy ns far. as Brenner, a
rectification of the frontier from lionao as
far as Oorltz. Furthermore. Austria Is
ready to make Trieste nn International
port, to Brant autonomy to the Italians

tlefortlflratlon of Tola, the Important Aus
trian naval base, ns nn nBSuranco that
Italy will remain dominant In tho Adri

II hns met with n certain amount of mli
trust. It le United, moreover, to a stipu

renewal of the Triple Alliance, tthlch
makes It wholly unacceptable.

PAIUS, April 27.
Colonel Popplno Garibaldi, who 1b here
for a few days to conclude arrange
ment for rending tho remainder of the
Italian volunteers home, has given out
a remarkable Interview, In which he says
positively thnt Italy will declare war upon
Austria on or before May 15.
"Italy will attack Austria certainly,"
he said, "not later than liny 15, and pos
sibly sooner. Two campaigns wilt be
started simultaneously, one against tho
Austrian Tyrol, which will consist chiefly
of artillery work and will probably be
very slow; the other along tho coast,
from a point at the rear of Trieste, whoro
14 clnsc8 of troops are already under
"In tho first line of Invaders ngalnst
Austria there will bo S0O.00O men, against
Austria's 200.000. uho are now awaiting
tho attack. Our navy Is far stronger
than the Austrian, nnd will undoubtedly
permit tho movement of troops across the
Adriatic for attacks elsewhere. Tho en
tire campaign will be finished ttell beforo
winter, nnd It Is probablo that there will
bo somo exchange of troops between
France nnd Italy after we begin our
attack. It Is certnln, at least, that the
Allies will try to penetrate Bavaria from
the south, while the Italians will gladly
help tho French to push the Germans
slowly bark through Belgium.

If Tire Bills
are making you see RED
then, see RED far enough to buy Empire
Tires ; then see that tire expense dwindle.
Most tires come to grief through disintegra
tion. But for scientific reasons, disintegra
tion is minimized in RED Rubber, and
friction has slim chance to work on Empire
RED Tires. RED Rubber must be new
rubber, so the RED is a sure-thing sign of
longest wear on the road or standing still.
We studied tire faults and came across with
this big idea of Empire RED Rubber Tires,
which are tougher and livelier to start with,
and which dodge blowouts and rim-cuts
till extra-long service puts them on the shelf.
All of which is mighty nourishing to your
This Empire RED Tire has a tread that
laughs at ruts and slippery streets. The
elastic RED Rubber contracts on cuts and
keeps them from spreading.
Past performances have proved that we can
freely pledge Empire RED Tires to deliver
more mileage than you expect So this is
our proposition : "If you feel you have
another single mile cominer from an Emniro
RED Tire when it finally peters out, just
say the word, and we will satisfy you fully
and promptly," Can any agreement
be fairer, squarer or broader? Then, &&$
