Hwvfedom In Philadelphia khould b

Tho Metropolitan, where tho Messrs
Shubert Will stage a glorified Hort or
nesr-hyprdromo entertainment. Is sched
uled to open Its doors October 2. Tho
postponement was due to no lack ot
preparation, but to a premature rase ot
cold feet over the hot weather. The de
lay, however, should materially Improve
the program so far as an opportunity for
selecting the leading feature film goes.
Tho program will run about as an
nounced last week with a live or six part
photoplay; "The Mikado, ' as a tabloid
operetta.; operatic selections by a quartet,
assisted by a, chorus of SO, a symphony
orchestra, a mammoth pipe organ, lltlng
tableaux and an Iridescent fountain.

the auditorium where the orchestra once
The other feature of the coming photo
play season. Triangle Alms at tho Chest
nut Street Opera House, will be a few
days yet In developing. The opening was
originally scheduled for tonight, but It
will bo delayed a fow days, perhaps until
Thursday, to allow for tho completing of
house alterations. The Interior of the
theatre has been completely, not to say
catastrophlcally, redecorated, rebuilt and
reseated. For two weeks the auditorium
has resembled the Interior of a church on
the battle front. When the Philadelphia
publlo get a look at It they will be more
than surprised nt the tasteful reorgani
zation. Tho Chestnut Street Opera House will
resemble closely the Knickerbocker The
atre In New York, which was opened
Thursday nlgbt with the same bill of
Triangle features 'which we shall see
some time next week. According to the
New Tork papers, both the house and tho
entertainment pleased vastly. Mr. Grif
fith and his associates Insist on a sub
dued gray interior which will blend gradu
ally Into the pictures on the screen, but
they are ready, as has proved the case at
the Knickerbocker, to add some color in
the novel and dainty costumes of the
Tho pictures themselves were well liked
by the critics. Dustln Farnum, in the
"Iron Strain," a feature film produced
bv Ince. and Raymond Hitchcock, in
Mack Bennett's "My Valet," received
words of commendation; but, as might
have been expected, the honors of the
evening" went to Orlfflth and his presenta
tion of Douglas Fairbanks, in "The
Lamb." Hey wood Broun says. In the
New Tork Tribune: " "The Lamb' is, to
our mind, over the hills and far away
beyond The Birth of a Nation' In sus
tained Interest of story, and tho charge
of the Indians across a great Bagebrush
plain is at least as good as any of the
wild rides of the clansmen. Bereft, too,
of any annoying propaganda, such as
burdens tho reconstruction picture play,
The Lamb" may fairly be said to bo the
last -word in thrills."
Philadelphia looks forward, with a lot of
interest, to what the Triangle will offer.
Next week the Stanley weds two such
remarkably different talents as John Ma
son and Hazel Dawn, in "The Fatal
Card." This photoplay, which will bo
seen there the first three days of the
week, is the Joint product of C. Haddon
Chambers and B. C. Stevenson It gives
Mr. Mason the pleasurable and Interest
ing opportunity of impersonating Miss
The last half of the week brings a
film from the Famous Players that has
long been awaited with Interest. It Is
a plcturlzatlon it Mark Twain's charm
ing and altogether fllmablo book, "The
Prince and the Pauper." The part of tho
pauper boy, who changes places with
the son of an English king, should give
Marguerite Clarko unusual opportunity
to display her agreeable talents. There
Is also an opening for spectacular and
exciting scones In this tale ot the Middle
Next week the first Equitable release
comes to town. It Is a film version of
George Broadhurst's drama of free love,
'The Price." Helen Ware will play her
original part. The film will be seen at
the Arcadia on Monday and Tuesday.
The next two days the beautiful little
theatre on Chestnut street will show
Blanche Sweet In "The Case of Becky,"
The last two days of the week bring
Charlotte Walker in "Out of Darkness."
Next week the Palace goes in for
Mary Pickford and Charlotte Walker, an
excellent combination and a contrast
too, MIsb Pickford in "Esmeralda,"
the first half of the week, and Miss
Walker In "Out of Darkness," for the
U. s DECLINES TO DISCUSS
SAFE CONDUCT FOR DUMBA
Insists on Specific Answer to Recall
t WASHINGTON, Sept, 25.
Tho State Department today received
a message from the Austrian Foreign Of
Mce asking whether it will arrange a safe
conduct for Dr Constantln Dumba,
vhose recall has been demanded by Pres
ident Wilson. In reply Vienna was im
mediately notified that, until a specific
reply has been received from the For
eign Office to tho demand for tho recall
if Doctor Dumba, the United States
oust decline to discuss the question of
a safe conduct in any way,
la this connection it was learned at the
IVhlto House that on the nature of tho
final reply to be made by Austria will
depend the future course of the Admin-
, titration toward Doctor Dumba, While
many officials are urging that he be
handed his passports and ordered to
leave, the President la maintaining an
ojren mind on the subject Jf Austria tries

THE REEL AND THE UNREAL
By CECIL B. DE MILLE, Director General of tho Lasky Co.
PltOM the point of lew of the director
and producer thoy are fundamentally
opposed tho screen and the stage. I
mean by this that whereas certain dra
matic principles, of course, are applicable
to both, the mediums of work and effect
aro entirely different.
The producer for the lcgltlmnte stage
Is eer trying to construct a fabric
which may be built up and torn down
in its entirety eight times a week, or
as often as his drama is acted The ma
terial mediums with which he works are
canvas or wooden scenic walls, as tho
case may be, and such realistic articles
as may be properly and effectively dis
played within tho range of tho pro
scenium of the stage. His human mediums
are men and women, who. In tho building
or rehearsing process, are being trained
to withstand weeks and months of repe
titions of their play. The legitimate pro
FROM READERS AND
What Correspondents Think of
Things Questions and
Last week the Photoplay Editor sug
gested some film classics that ought to
be revived more frequently than they
arc. He named some of the Griffith re
issues and the following feature films
"Quo Vodls?" "Julius Caesar," "Spar
tlcus." "Antony and Cleopatra," "The
Last Days of Pompeii," "The Odyssey,"
"The Fall of Troy," "Vanity Fair," "Les
Mlserables" and "The Inferno." Ho also
promised any theatro special publicity
that would bring back ono of these to
tho screen. "SparticuB" was tho answer
of the manager of the Tulpehocken Thea
tro jesterday. Who clso will give us t
look at some of theso flno old films?
A correspondent, who Is heartily In
sympathy with the revival of film clas
sics, says a good word for the Evesino
LEDacn'o list, and suggests the addition
of Borne Griffith masterpieces: "The Blot
On the "Scutcheon." "The Golden Sup
per" and "Tho Sands o' Deo" all good
A correspondent asks when the
redemption of David Corson, with Will
lam Farnum, can bo seen In Philadelphia.
This Is another case where he must rely
on the enterprise nnd generosity of tho
exhibitor. The editor doesn't know at
the moment Just where or when this film
can be seen.
Here are some answers to inquisitive
Phil The plnyers you mention are
devoting their entire time to screen work.

On tho other hand, tho photoplay di

The appearance of many of the most
noted artists of tho grand opera, concert
and musical stage as vaudeville head
liners Is becoming more regular each sea

singer or Instrumentalist of note as a
feature of the pro

Mr Bispham is a
Phlladelphlan, but it
was in London that

ho made his first
noted triumph. For several years he had
been slnplng In concert and oratorio work
in this country and In London, where Sir
Augustus Harris, the Jmpresslo of Covent
Garden, persuaded Mm to enter opera
Mr. Blsham made his debut as Kurwenai
In "Tristan and Isolde " Then followed

Later he was one of the prlnct! num
bers of the Metropolitan Opera Company
In New York,
Tho present agitation for opera In Eng
lish, according to Mr. Bispham, is In no
way an original move. Years ago the
astute Augustus Harris used to say "Why
should not tho words be understood?"
and from then pn there has been waged,
with always increasing sincerity, an ef
fort for opera In English, Other na.
