Americans Not Rushing; to Suy Enr
i , , lisa Factory Sites.
Formidable MMiira Pawed br Ko

fect Immediate Reaalts
Sonant After.
IXNDON. Sept. 38. (Special.) There Ik
much excltemrit and speculation In England
over the working of the new patents act,
which la generally supposed to be a
formidable measure for compelling "for
eigners," principally Americans and Ger
mans, , to manufacture their Inventions in
England. Most English persons Imagined
that Americans would be among the first
to rush to protect their threatened Inter
ests by immediately acquiring English fac
tory sites and beginning to produce their
patented articles. To the surprise of every
one, however, the Americans do not seem
the least bit flustered by the new English
pr tents act. There Is no big rusli for build
ing land, and. with the exception of one
or two American firms who find the em
ployment of British cheap labor advanta
geous, there Is absolutely "nothing doing"
in the expected building rush.
Several papers recently published the
statement that 1116,000,000 of foreign" enp
Ititl, a considerable portion of it being
American, had already been Invested here.
CIosa Inquiry by the writer among various
prominent American firms elicits the fact,
however, that practically none of this capi
tal is American. It Is quite true that a
larg sum la being spent by German manu
facturers in putting up factories in various
places tn England, but the Americans are
apparently, like Brer Rabbit, "lying low
and saytn' nuttln'." As a matter of fact,
this time the Americans have acted with
tin unusual degree of calm, not to say
Loophole In Act.
There Is a loop-hole In the patents act.
and the Americans are looking through
tills loop-hole, waiting to see Just what is
going to happen to the German firms.
Americans are. considered by Europeans to
bo a vry Impulsive race, and are expected
to rush Into things with a whoop. This
time all British expectations have been
disappointed. The loop-hole tn the patents
art la this: The law statea that In order
for an article patented In Great Britain to
be fully protected in that country it must
be manufactured there to an "adequate
extent." These two little words are evi
dently interpreted with varying latitude,
according to the Individual point of view,
and It la Just on the nice interpretation of
this phrase that the whole matter hinges.
For Instance, a manufacturer doing $10,000
worth of buainesa in selling a certain pat
ented article In the British market may
consider he ia manufacturing "to an ade
quate extent" if he opens a branch office
In an obscure hamlet somewhere and em
ploys a couple of employes to turn out a
fw doien specimens of the article. Just
what complies with the law in lids par-
tlulir remains to be seen, and hence it is
that the present attitude of American
firms over the new British patents act may
be described as a waiting one. The Ameri
cans are watching the Germans closely
Several German firms have put up factories
here and theie in order to comply with the
law, and. doubtless, there will be a number
of legal "test cases" to define the meaning
of "adequate manufacture." When these
caaea have been fought out of course at
great expense the Americans will reap the
beoaftt of the decision.
Factory slice Htakcr.
In the meantime, there Is not a single
flurry of excitement In the American
raska U there is acjr excitement at ail It
is on the part of British land explorers who
have Invested heavily in factory sites In
the hope of taking- a rW odt .'bft the Yan
kee manufacturer who-Hio 'thought English
land speculators would have to buy fac
sltes at any price. The main effect, so far,
pf the British patents act Is to put up the
price of factory sites all over the country.
In order to ascertain the opinion of Ameri
can manufacturers icslding In England the
writer recently Interviewed some of them.
The representative of one of the largest
firms made the following statement on the
new patents act:
"The only effect we have noticed so far
Is that our office has been deluged with
circulars. . pamphlets, maps nnd letters
from real speculators, offering us land on
which to manufacture our product.' but.
Just as yet, we are not having any. So
far as the patents act affects American
Interests In England, I can truly say I do
not know of a single firm who Iirs gone
Into manufacturing solely on account of
the working of the act. It Is true that
several large American firms have opened
up In England, but this Is simply because
they have found It advantageous to do so
owing to the Inducements offered by cheap
British labor. But these conditions have
nothing whatever to do with the new act.
The Westlnghouse people and other firms
have established English factories simply
because it was found cheaper to manu
facture their products on the spot than to
khrlng their goods across the ocean. Sev
eral American flrma already have their
own factories, not only in England, but
Germany, France, Russia and other
European countries.
Sretematle, Work Bealna.
'The principal activity In the patents act
line has been on the part of English es
tate speculators. As a matter of fact
several of these have sent representatives
to America for the express purpose of
trying to sell lands tn England. AH Ameri
can Investors and firms who have taken
out English patents are being systematic
ally circularised, and several English
agents are now touring the t'nlted States
trying to sell their land. So far as I can
see there Is very little business being done
even in this line."
Inquiry at the American consulate in
Loudon confirmed these statements. There
Is a very prevalent opinion among busi
ness houses that this move Is the begin
ning of protection in England. It Is. con
sidered significant that an ostensibly
free trade" government should Introduce
a measure which Is nothing more nor less
than a distinct form of protective tariff.

In the new Rowland & Clifford produc

the Krug theater for two days, starting

true dramatic strength and power, with
out resorting to claptrap. The scene in

less, and proves that there la as much
strength and power to hold In a quiet, tense
scene as in the most extravagant mechan

fervid Imagination. It is an Interesting
story and well told, probably one of the
best plays of Its kind ever presented en

theater for five days, starting Tuesday

the product of Tj. Frank Baum, who sup

Tletjons and A. Baldwin Sloane, who fur

most popular and entertaining exravagan
zas ever produced. Few caractera of the
eccentric comedy type have scored such a
tremendous triumph as have those unique
personages, the Scarecrow and the.,,-Tin
Man. The other characters are also drawn
In a clever manner. Dorothy Gale, the
Kansas lass, who la blown on the crest ,f

funny little bogus Wizard and his futile
attempts to retain the throne.
The Burwood management has selected
for presentation during carnival week "The

Another arrival in London from a tem
porary absence is May de Sousa, the popu
lar little musical comedy actress whom,
although an American, the English regard
as their own. She has been appearing In
Paris at the Comedle Francalse and else
where, and Is now rehearsing the part
formerly played by Evle Green in "Ha
vana," Leslie's Stuart's latest musical
comedy, now playing at the Gaiety.
Miss de Sousa tells an amusing story
of her experience In the French capital.
She was to appear at the Moulin Rougi
and had written her own part, but the
management asked her to add thirty-two
lins which they furnished.
"They were dreadfuly resque lines," she.
says, "and I would only speak two of
them. loiter, when my French had Im
proved, I found to my horror I had picked
the very worst two of the lot!"
If persistence is any measure of
the truth of a rumor, then Edna
May is shortly to return to the
London stage in "straight" comedy. She
has long been anxioua to appear in a Bar
rle part and many Judges consider thai she
is admirably fitted for such a role. The
rumor is by no means a new one and it
has once been denied, but there is no
doubt that the former actress has been in
communication with the Scottish author
regarding her desire to be fitted with a
part by hia sympathlc hand. Barrle i liol

However, with Charles Frohman support
ing her plea, Mrs. Lewisohn may accom
plish her wish.
Martin Harvey has entered upon his an
nual season at the Adelphl. He was on
sure ground when he selected for his open
ing piece a revival of "The Corslcan Broth
ers." He revels in a part that gives him
an excellent opportunity of demonstrating
that he is one of the finest romanUc ac
tors on the stage today and he puts a
fire and dash Into his playing that fairly
lifts one out of one's seat.
He precedes the longer play with a one
act piece of theairicaltsm called "The
Conspiracy" which he saves from medioc
rity by his fine acting of the part of a
deposed king, who suddenly cumn upon
a body of Insubordinate officers who rally
to hia support upon hearing the news of
an uprising. JOHN AVA CARPENTER.
