son" were secured for Mr. Frohman, and
she helped to bring- about the final ar
rangements between him and Henry Hertz,
director of the Porte St. Martin theatre,'
Paris, for the American production of
"Chanticleer," In which Coquelln the elder
expected to play and with which Guitry
will open the season In Paris In November.
The translation Into English has been done
by Rostand's son.
Besides these dramatic suocesses Miss
Andrews has obtained from the French
government a concession for the building
up of a messenger service In the French
capital on American lines. She has made
on attempt to start this service and ex
pects to take the matter up again when
certain obstacles are removed.
She acts as Introducer and Interpreter to
Guitry at a dressing room Interview. It
takes place between the acta of
"L'Emlgr," by Paul Bourget, In which
Guitry plays the part of the old Marquis.
London critics consider this one of 01111178
War "L'As.omoIr" Was Played.
It was by command of the king1 that
"L'AssomoIr" opened the French season, as
he had never seen Guitry In the role of
Coupeau and was anxious to compare his
work with that of Warner and others.
Beside "L'AssomoIr" Guitry has presented
"L'Emlgre," "Le Voleur" and "Samson"
of Bernstein, already played In America;
"Cralnquebllle," "La Massler" and "L
Bourgeois Gentllhomme," In whloh Jean
Coquelln has an Important part
The round table In the Savoy grill room.
wnere every night after his appearanoe
Guitry sits, Is the focus of many eyes.
With him are always one of the male mem
bers of the company, Mme. Roily, his lead
ing woman, and Mme. Jeanne Deaolos.
The two women are always gowned In
Greek eostuiues of the empire, and unlike
the modes of this period exhibited by
Anglo-Saxon women the robes are critically
exact In line, elimination and draping
They are of white, clinging In texture, with
luatreful surfaces on which the shaded
lights throw wonderful tints, the sol trim
ming bands of exquisite embroideries out
lining the low out bodices.
Their hair is always worn without arU
flclal additions of puffs, curls or braids.
It is filleted with broad bands of ribbons
worn far in front, almost touching the
I forehead, between which and the edge es
cape a few tiny curls. Over the Qreelc
gowna ivheu they rise and depart, which
they do exactly at midnight every night,
, are worn evening coats of the peplum style
, In old shadea of rose and blue. One even
; lug Mme. Roily wears a gown of the new
Ues of wine shade with draplngs of point
I Galtrr's Personal Appearanoe.
1 Guitry is so broad In shoulder girth that
he seems almost abnormal, and supported
by this vast pedestal rlsea a short, thick
neck, a powerful head, orowned with heavy
gray hair. Ills eyes are hazel, almost
black, and are penthoused with a thatch
of thick eyebrows. His nose is a massive
aquiline; his upper Hp la short and his chin
slightly protruding. Tou think o( Roman
togas watching him, he does not fit Into
tha picture of modern modes at all. He Is
far removed from the typical Frenchman.
Later you discover that his heavy frame,
this seemingly Impassive fao can portray
the simplicity of the French peasant fight
ing Die inherited tendencies to alcohol and
fateful opportunities, the self-repression of
a representative of the old regime, the
president of the Paris Bourse who has self
raised himself by his own efforts, the man
of Hi world wearied by feminine exactions
and allurements, who drives his wife to
J theft to win his Interest.
The quartet is always the quietest In the
room. A sort of Hellenic calm prevails;
1 &o fit tfc Mpected lightness Of
conversation and largesse of gesture. A J
word or two Is spoken now and then; there
Is a Spartan simplicity of menu, a quiet
delight In the touch and go of the crowd
about and finally a reserved flitting, with
glances neither to right nor to left.
Some of II U Habits.
Guitry is discredited as a very shy man.
He spends his time in London rambling
about the old shops or picking up ourloa,
of which he is a collector. He loves the
old-fashioned parts -of town, far from the
crowds and traffic. He goes to no social
functions and absolutely refuses to be
lionized. He appears to be a man who
has seen much, of many experiences and
strenuous work, and now at 48 Is content
with the bypaths of leisure hours.
"You cannot keep me away from Amer
ica if you try, and you won't do that, will
you 7"' he' says. "I have never attempted
the trip because well, It's hard to break
away for such a distance and I have not
seen the path quite clear, or perhaps I
have" been a little afraid of homesickness
and have let obstacles grow Into barriers.
But It Is sure to be soon, either next year
or the year after at the latest.
"When I loaned the Renaissance theater
to Charles Frohman for The Admirable
Crlchton,' the first Amertoan play ever
produced In Parfs In the native tongue, I
understand, I believed then that I would
follow his suggestion and come right away
to your country. Mr. Frohman's enthusi
asm was no greater than my own, but I
have studied the American point of view,
whloh I am most familiar, I admire It and
and whll It Is different to the one with
which I am most familiar, I admlr It and
understand It thoroughly.
"I am curious, very curious, to see Amer
ica In my imagination I expect that It
will perhaps pleas me almost as much as
London does; that I shall find 'it much
Ilk my own country In Its stimulation, the
nervous energy of the people and the alert
ness of the point of view, but In artistic
matters, while It will surpris, naturally
I cannot, I do not, anticipate quite the
comprehension of extreme aesthetlclsm or
the broad and liberal tolerance that an
older country possesses.
London a Soothing; Balm.
"London Is so quiet and peaceful! It
has always been to me like a cool hand
laid on an aching brow. The peopl go
about their work and pley soberly and dis
creetly; there is , no excitement, no hub
bub, nothing to disturb or distract.
"Last Sunday, Asoot Sunday, I went on
the river with some friends and we were
held up In the lock for an hour. W were
surrounded there with other boats all anx
ious to get on, and each was filled with
Sunday excursionists, but ther was no
disturbance, no shrieking or yelling, or
visible protest against the Inevitable, as
ther would have been In a similar situa
tion In my own country, where, to put It
mildly, they would hav simply raised hell
and wouldn't have got on one bit quicker.
"Don't think I sra unpatriotic. When I
was In St Petersburg playing at th Im

Sunday Is not a particularly cheerful day
to one who has had no Saturday, but I
looked forward to Monday. Monday came,
It was a bank holiday and the sam state
of funereal ealm and seclusion prevailed.
Early Tuesday morning I got married, for
I felt that at any time In the future I
might land In a strange country and en
counter a similar state of affairs and I
must hav company.
"And apresT Oh, mademoiselle, what do
you expect, married for such a reason?
A divorce of course. Now I come to Lon
don I do not resent th calm, I adore the
birthdays of royalty. I cannot hav too
many bank holidays but X do not marry."
Gultry'a eyes twinkle and his great body
shakes with laughter. Th contrast be
tween the early married days and the
later freedom Is evidently pleasing.
Then he reminisces again for a moment
and speaks of his early days of training
at the conservatoire. "It did not do me
any harm, I assure you I escaped too
soon. Is that my feeling in regard to most
dramatic schools T I must say It is. I think
them perfectly harmless. They cannot des

kill genius, but you must escape In time."
The young man is alwaya
a criterion on the Question of
style and quality of oxfords.
He notices all the details of
an oxford, such as width of
toe, shape of last and height
of heel. On all these points
he Is well posted. Oxfords

Out of a very long reportoire, which he
catalogues hastily, Guitry selects the role

ductions In which for many years he and
Bernhardt appeared together.
Favorite Roles Absord.
"I do not sea how an actor," he con
tinues, "can say which is his favorite role.
Each one as it unfolds Its possibilities must
be that for unless he throws his whole
self into Its portrayal and erases from his
memory the thought of other parts, how
can ha do the best that is In him? The rols
he is playing is his only role there is no
other, ther Is no yesterday to the actor,
no tomorrow; in the moment he must live
by that power and that only can he hope

"But your Question reminds me that I
have a distinct ambition. It Is not to
become again an actor manager. Like Na
poleon, I had Seven years of success, and
then I met my Waterloo, but unlike Na
poleon, after my Waterloo I came to Eng
land. I did not retire from the public eye.
"No, it Is simply so to present the role
of "Chanticleer," that marvelous concep
tion of Rostand's, that I may feel I have
acceptably carried on the work that Coque
lln commenced. It Is difficult to make one
comprehend how a mlse en scene laid
In a bsrnyard with the denizens of that
place for the characters can be anything
but a humorous production, but you will
see, you will eeei There is grandeur, there
Is dignity, there Is seriousness and beauty,

Pocu for All Ages.
"It Is not a production especially for the
French people, filled with local allusions
and national subtllltles, as soma of the
reading public Imagine. On the contrary
it la a literary poem for all time and for
all ages. It does not depend on Its action
but on the beauty of thought for its suc
cess. It Is really an apotheosis of the
sun, which shines for us all and will
continue to shin when we pass on. It Is
the great fable of modern writings!"
Guitry snatches a pencil of makeup from
the dressing table and rapidly sketches the
man transformed into the "Cock" of the
barnyard. "Tou see how simply It can be
done, the arms hidden, the comb and tall
added, that is all. When you notice the
lines of the man's body. Isn't is surprising
how they fit Into the drawing of the cock?
"Coquelln waa so enamored of the part
that he went about reciting bits of it
now and then to his friends. One or twice
Rostand said to him: 'Do you not think
It is a mistake to do that? Won't you

CHASING THE SUGAR TRUST
Crooked Ways and Shady Tricks
Brings Bla; Combine to
Within less thsn seven weeks the Amer
ican Sugar company, commonly known as
the Sugar Trust, has dlsgorced approxi
mately M. 134, 000 In money and securities
which had come into its possession through
Of this amount, $2,134,000 was deliberately
stolen from - the government treasury
through the falsification of weight of mil
lions of pounds of imported sugar, through
the medium of crooked scales operated
by crooked men.
The remaining (2.000,000 represents the
value of the money and stock which the
hungry trust wrested from that Ill-starred
promoter, Adolph Segal, In his necessity.
This sum bears the blood stains of Frank
K. Hippie, one-time respected bank pres
ident and philanthropist of Philadelphia,
who blew out his brains rather than facif
the disgrace which had been brought upon
Nineteen months ago the American Sugar
company was fined sums aggregating
S1G8.000 for accepting rebates on its enor
mous sugar shipments from railroads.
These fines represent the result of a
civil suit brought against the trust during
the last few years only. Prior to the im
position of the fine for accepting rebates,
a suit to make the Amerloan Sugar com
pany give up what it had once grasped
waa regarded In the light of a legal Jest.
So carefully had it built up Its posi
tion thst it was regarded as virtually Im
pregnable. The keenest legal minds were
in its service. For It, the law had ceased
to become a prohibition of wrong do
There la today hanging fire In the New
York courts a suit which the city of New
'fork brought nearly six years sgo foi
JM0.O00. the value of water which the
trust is alleged to have taken from tin
city mains, and for which U has nevor
paid a cent. In the charge It Is related
that the big refineries received 2,000,0u0
gallons dally which waa stolen.
The history of the thirty years of ths
life of the trust is marked by hundreds of
oases assailing it, all of which beat them
selves out against a stone wall. But dur
ing the last few weeks it has been dem
onstrated that the trust Is vulnerable
after all, and that theft, no matter how
disguised, la still theft in the final analy
sis. And now that the trust has made tacit
admission of these thefts, the government
has changed Its tactics. , Next Thursday
there will begin in the federal courts in
this city the trials of seven men who were
arrested when the lawyers for the Ameri
can Sugar company paid back to th
people of the United States the 2,134,00O
Jutles on Imported sugar which It had
stolen in installments of a few cents at a
time for yenrs.
These men were the trust weighers at
the crooked scales, who received $13 a
week, and who are said to have received
in each pay envelope a bonus of $5 a week
which did not appear on the books.
The suits are no longer In the civil
courts, but charge criminal acts. The ob
ject Is no longer the restoration of money
which the trust did not own, but punish
ment for taking that money. Further, the
avowed purpose of ths prosecution la not
only to obtain the conviction of these
weighers, but, if possible, to discover "th
man higher up" th person or persons
who are responsible for the dsliberat
swindle of the government and who coun
tenanced it Philadelphia North American.
