When the president had concluded, Sena

his hand and shook It enthusiastically. The
senator,, whose term expires with this con

re-election, said something to Mr. Taft,
w ho laughed aloud and said to the assembly
of men and women from his native state:
"Senator Pick has Just told me that he
heartily endorses everything I have said
on this 'subject"
The president was the guest of honor at
a meeting called to organize an Ohio society
In Washington. Justice William R. Day
presided and substantially was elected pres

Kmma Kltynge Blanche Walsn
Blanche Walsh is always wortn while;
she has devoted herself as persistently aa
any other ona person on the stage to the
drama of purpose, and while she hss long
been associated with "that sort of woman,"
It has been no Idly-drawn picture of mere
suffering and following remorse that she
has b-n engaged in portraying. She has
taken each of these as a problem, or
factors in a great problem, and has used
each as citations In support of her argu
ment. She has argued for the woman,
and argued ably and well and who shall
say she has not argued with more of suc
cess than the world has yet realised T
in tha present Instance Miss Walsh has
a play that Is worthy of the care she has
bestowed upon It; It may have soma tech
nical flaws, faults that appeal to the
hypercritical, but its subject la ao vast
and Its treatment so Impressive that the
Imperfections are covered by the finer
fabric of the Interest generated by the
forceful way in which the main question
Is put. It is whether the woman is not
to be given the same chance as tha man;
ls.lt fair to say to the one, "It's all right;
you have promised reform, and we will
trust you," and to say to the other, "You
have sinned," and there Is no hope for you."
The story deals with the life of a girl.
Brie loved a young man, who was caught
stealing; his employer promised to secure
his release If she would pay tha price.
She paid, and on the testimony of the
employer he was sent to prison. Ten
years later the girl, now a woman, has a
chance to wed a -man she really loves,
but finds his sister ia about to become
tha wife of the man who sent the young
lover to prison after getting his pay for
assistance he never gave. ."The question
for the woman is to accept tha verdict of
society that condemns her and allows the
man to go on, or to lay bare her heart
and save an Innocent girl. She tells the
wiole story and retires. The ending Is a
trifle conventional, but Is well within rea
son. Miss Walsh builds up the character very
carefully; ahe seems something Indifferent
at the opening of the play, without hope,
but clinging to her chance. As events move
along eho develops the greatest of hope,
then sees tha apparent hopelessness of her
case, sees her real reason for renunciation
misinterpreted, till finally, moved by a still
higher resolve, she g:ves up all that she
may be the meana of doing soma good
for tho man she loves. - She succeeds, and
her exit at tha end of the third act Is
after one of the most effective olimaxes
she ever has achieved. ' The quiet, even
recital of her atory of wrong, In which
ahe sticks to "brutal facts," with no ef
fort Jat extenuation,, seems, tha very. acme
of bitter' resolve; then comes the reaction.
when she has drained her courage to the
utmost, and is Once more the woman, sob
bing,, as she says, "I think I had better
go home!" This one little touch in Itself
la flpe, but la only one .or a number of
good chances that are well accepted. All
through tha action of the play her art
rings true. Her results are certain, and
she well deserves tha praise she has had
for the best work she has ever done. '
Each of tha several parts In the dramatis
personnae Is a cha.-acter, not a "type."
Each is vital to the play's action, and each
is human in every aspect. And each Is
played so well that the praise given the
star must be extended to the company.
Mr. Goodman's dialogue' is open to the
accusation of being Just a little "talky,"
but It Is so earnest and so reasonable that
this will be forgiven him. Great arguments
may be presented In epigrams, but tha com
mon range of mortals do not talk that
.way, and the people in this play are Just
men and women, dealing 'with a matter
that very closely touches each of them,
and ' therefore have little or no time for
the refinement of their speech. And in the
talk of the play some mighty good lines
are set forth. It is well worth listening to.
The Brandels was well filled last night,
and Miss Walsh has 'the satisfaction of
knowing her efforts were appreciated, for
the curtain calls she had must have told

Edwin Mordaunt told a etory at the
Krug last night the story of the making
of a man. It was a hard story to tell.
The story of the redemption of Stephen
Uhfnt and his crossing of that other great
divide, the one which lies between the In
stincts of primitive man and the subtle
organised creature of civilisation, can be
but partly told In words. Mr. Mordaunt
told It. True to the part that the author
has given him the . actor keeps Stephen
Ghent simply tntereetlng, not in any sense
a hero, but a man. The admiration that
lie drawa Is for being a man.
The play In Itself Is striking. The plot
Involves a marriage without lovemaking
and without love, jual passion on one side
and fear on tha other. Then follows the
bitter struggle of tha heart of the cave
man that Stephen Ghent wears against the
Puritanic conceptions that a background
of centuries of racial development have
put Into Ruth Jordan, the woman he bore
away to be his mate. The struggle ends
in . her becoming hla wife.
in the successful Interpretation of this
remarkable psychological experiment a
large share of effort and art falls to the
part of Mabel Brownell as Ruth Jordan.
She must be first the symbolism of the
force that works the rebirth of her sav
age husband, and, secondly, a woman. The
fusing of the two becomes a curiously
I netted human fabric. Miss Brownell Is

House of Lords
Opposition to Veto Power Bobs Up
in Amendment Teat Motion
Slated for Monday.
LONDON. April l.-The official opposi
tion amendment to Premier Asqulth's reso
lutions on the veto power of the House of
Lords was moved In the Hduse of Commons
today by Sir Robert Ballantyne Flnlay. It
declares In favor of a strong; and efficient
second chamber and expresses willingness
to consider proposals for the reform of tha
upper house, but declines to proceed with
the government proposals, which would
destroy the usefulness of any second cham
ber. Winston Spencer Churchill, the home
secretary, made an Important contribution
to the debate. He declared that when the
veto resolutions were disposed of they
would sdvance with the budget, regardless
of tha consequences. Unless the House of
Commons carried tha budget It was Idle, ho
said, to look to the king or to the country
to carry the veto bill, but he predicted
that at the proper time and under the
proper circumstances they would succeed
In carrying both the veto and budget meas
ures to the steps of the throne.
Premier Asqulth's guillotining motion,
which Is published tonight, provides that
the committee stage of all three veto reso
lutlons shall be concluded on the night of
The government apparently has made up
Its mind to bring political matters to an
Issue In May. In the House of Commons
this afternoon Premier Asqulth announced
two test motions, the first to be made on
April 4, allotting a specific period for the
discussion of the veto regulations, and,
tha second, designating the time to be given
to a consideration of the budget. The
opinion In the lobby today was that this
ariangement portended a general election
within six weeks.

War With Japan Probable, ;
Declares French, Admiral
PARIS, April 1. Continuing his exam
ination of International politics in a series
of papers now being published, ' Admiral
Foirrnler says that it Is useless to deny
that there is a possibility of war between
the United States and Japan, as Irritation
in America showed Japan's demands or
Japan's policies of absorption prove in
tolerable to America's excessive self-esteem
or interests in tha far east.
These interests, the admiral adds, are
antagonistic to those of Japan which pushed
on by fate to expand In the Asiatic con
tinent by a conquest or diplomatic victory,
seeks to become predominant In the very
regions which the United Slates protects In
supporting the integrity, of China and the
policy of tha open door.
The admiral declares that Japan's great
fear is that the friendly relations between
the United States and China will culminate
In an out and out alliance, and "trnis In
event of war, the United States would- have..
a base of operations and general resources ..j
vastly superior to the PhtllppWs.; ' v ' " ' '
Admiral Fourntor thinks that the naval
strength of the United States will one day
not only exceed that of Japan., but will
probably equal that of Great Britain, In
splta of the effort of .England to preserve
Its supremacy of the eas.
In case of a hostile, coalition' it the United
States with the triple -alliance, thVadmlral
believes, France would be forced tojsupple
tpent the forces of England. Japan and
Russia. He doubts, however, that the Ger
man emperor, "although devoured by a de- .
sire to rnnash the league and adopt a diplo
macy as unscrupulous as that of the Iron
chancellor, would enter on the perilous
venture of such a war, which would offer
little chance of victory on sea or land."
