To-night, John Drew, in 'Tin; Prod

•• Madame President.''
I Friday afternoon aud eveuiug, Bur
Saturday afternoon and evening,
I Every afternoon and eveuiti,;. iiijj
Paily continuous /audeviile and pic
| *1 oilu Drew's visits are always the
j atrieal events of extreme interest and
J importance and the announcement of
I his appearance at the Majestic for one
! performance only this evening is a verv
j welcome one. Double interest attaches
! to his present engagement since he is
j to be seen in the new comedy in which
he has been appearing eve since tho
i opening of tin current season at the
| Empire theatre in New York. The new
| comedy i- "The Prodigal Husband,"
i by Dario Nicco iemi and Michael Mor
lion, collaborators, who are credited
with having titted Mr. Drew with one
•'f the best roles he has iiad in recent
; "The Prodigal Husband'' differs
I somewhat from several of the vehicles
in which this distinguished player has
latel; been- seen. Aside from i:<
laughter-arousing elements, the storv
contains much unexpected tenderness
and an extremely iugeni vs. cnilrt
scene, in which veal pathos o< asiona'lv
J interrupts tiie charming humor. Adv.
"Madam President," the French
| farce comedy. of which' M is- Fannie
! Ward is the star and which is to be
seen at the Majestic Thursday evening,
j has been referred to frequently as a
j play of many good parts. The ; [a'■
j role is that of Gobette, a Parisian act
I ress. and the dramatic critics of New
! ork. Chicago. Philadelphia and else
I where have declared the part to lie the
nio-1 signal success of Mis- Wall's
j stages career. It is said to be a ro'e
j admirably suited to her talents »- a
i comedienne, while il also calls for the
: display of emotional and dramatic abil
But there are numerous other caiirac
j ters that serve uot only to enliven the
I''Madam President" entertainment,
i ■but to form a gallery of character con
! trasts -aid to be both effective and in
tercsting. First, there is tiie President
,of the Tribunal in the provincial
Preuch village of Gray. M. Galipaux
| is venerable, upright and ingenuous, a
striking contrast to the mischievous Go
| bette. who makes him a victim of her
j pranks. Then there is nis wife. Mad
! :tm Galipaux, who was a cook before
j she married. She is good-hearted, but
' her plebeian manners nra a source of
constant embarrassment to her husband
and amusement to everyone else. Their
daughter, Denise. Is considerable of a
j novelty in characterization. She has
! been sent to Berlin to be educated and
' returns home speaking German fluently,
i but totally ignorant of her native
French language It is easy to imagine
tiie laughable situations that develop
i from this state of affairs. Adv.
'' September Morn''
Rowland Jc Clifford, the well known
theatrical producers, have prepared for
exploitation a new musical comedy jin
gle called "September Morn." Nat
1 Phillips, with a jolly crew of fifty as
, sistant- entertainers, accomj-auyiug. Ar
j tliur Gillespie wrote the music; Virgil
Bennett thought out a series of lively
dances, taugoes, etc, aud Frank Teii
! nehill, Jr., staged the production.
"September Morn," which comes to
the Majestic Saturday, matinee and
| night, is not of the old school farce
I comedy, but rather of the latter day
fun show, with an elaborate dressing of
costuming and scenery; a graceful,
dancing, spirited and charming chorus
! of good-looking giris have the big en
sembles well ,in hand aud the general
swing of tin* performance is delightful
-1 jly new und different. Adv.
At the Orplieum
Would you see David Warfleld, Fay
Tenipetton, George M. Cohen, Mont
ginnery and Stone, Lillian Russell.
Ciiaunex Alcott and Alice Lloyd (not
tiuinselves). but cleverly impersonated

at the Orpheu lnthls week in one of the
best " kid acts ever seen at that thea
tre. It all happens that the young
sters were planning a party, at which
the various celebrities were to ni tear,
and when they fail them the boys and
girls just dress up themselves to imper
sonate the- aiiists who diss; pointed'
them and the great frolic that results
must be seen to be appreciated.
There's a Rieii.ud the Third, who is
some tragedian; a David Warfield, who
gives a • vilcndid impersonation: Lillian

New York. Nov. 10.—The Savville,
! ■ L. L. wireless plant, which, since the
1 war, has been chiefly conspicuous as
i the principal German medium of com
: liiunication with the I'nited States,
j picked up yesterday afternoon a dis

j Rembrandt, which sailed from Haiti
• 'more for Si. Nazaire, France, with SOU
. i French cavalry horses ou board.
, i The Hembrandt signalled, the Say -
I ' ville station reported, that she was

I position as about 200 miles east of i
. Cape llenry, and added that slie was
I making for the coast at full speed.
) Before any other ship could pick uni
the message and go to the Rembrandt's

;) Washington. Nov. 10.—Japan as
. j well as Germany is believed to be op
' | erating a secret wireless station from
' 1 this country. Evidence secured by rcprc
'sentatives of the Navy Department
' tends to show that agents of the Miku
• do have established a plant somewhere
! on the coast of California.
i Several days ago the British Km
' bassy complained to the Department
i of State that Germany had some secret
j means of communication between Wasli-
I ington and Berlin. All the evidence
i tended to establish the belief that a
i wireless station had been established
j in the Maine woods.
' When the announcement was made
j originally that there was evidence to
establish the belief that a wireless
! apparatus w'as hidden in this country
j the presumption was that it was being
