ENGLISH GET FUN
T
French and Germans Too Busy
Fighting to Contribute Non
sensical Ideas.
LONDON JOKES REPEATED
Mistakes Furnish Most Amusement
but Ridicule of Germans and Kai
ser Takes Vell--"Spy Re
ports" Provide Smiles.
NEW YORK. Oct. 11 The profes
sional humorists and cartoonists of
England now have practically a mon
opoly of European humor, because most
of their brethren on the Continent are
handling guns instead of pens.
It is a pessimistic Englishman who
cannot stop taking the silver lining ouj
of the war clouds to laugh at the hu
mor of Sir Owen Seaman and other
members of Mr. Punch's staff, to
chuckle over George Belcher's illus
trated jokes, to enjoy T. T. Reed's
.weekly cartoon, or to appreciate the
point of view of a new Chesterton par
adox. Even the daily newspapers, as their
columns show, provide an antidote for
the war news, but few of them are so
amusing as the mistakes that get into
their columns. "Every inch of Belgium
will be fought for foot by foot," de
clared the Daily Telegraph, and one of
its contemporaries announced, "War
News in a Few Lies." The other day
the Globe told how "the German liner
Belgla. having run short of coal, put
into Newport today and was seized as
a prize. She has over 250,000 worth of
food on board, including 400 tons of
cheese, 73 German reservists, and also
a large amount of specie." When the
Globe also informed its readers that
"the price of bread has just been fixed
by the authorities at 32 centimes the
kilometer." the professional humorists
pointed out that a couple of yards of
French roll for half a farthing wasn't
at all bad for wartime.
Ktrnu Specialities Subjects.
So the professionals joke, having sub
stituted for mothers-in-law, militant
suffragettes, futurist fashions, country
house parties, the new dances, George
Bernard Shaw, "nuts," F.ussian dancers,
"flappers" and the dramatic censor
for more up-to-date subjects, as the
military censor, spies, -recruits, the mo
ratorium, German sausage, the Kalse-.
and other things "made in Germany."
It is the Kaiser who furnishes the
Jokesmiths with a large part of their
material. They give him full credit, for
tie candor of these proximate sen
tences: "You are Germans. God help
us." They call attention to his annoy
ance because as a British Admiral he is
not being kept fully Informed as to the
movements of the British fleet. Punch
recalls that Queen Victoria recorded in
her "Journal in the Highlands" that
"Vicky sat down on a wasps' nest."
Since "Vicky" was destined later to
be the mother of Wilhelm II, it is
pointed out that the present situation
shows a remarkable example of hered
ity. H. T. Reed pictures the Kaiser as
"the ultimaniac." Says the Kaiser to
his Chancellor. "Let me see now, what
countries are there with whom we are
not at war?" "Well." . replies the
Chancellor, "There's China and Peru "
"What Infernal impudence!" inter
rupts the Kaiser. "Send them ultima
tums at once."
1'uneh's extracts from the Kaiser's
diary also strike at the ultimatum
habit:
"Consignment of Chicago sausages
arriving Hamburg is found to bear la
bel 'The Best." Deliberate blow at Ger
man supremacy. Germany is the sau
sage queen. Ultimatum to the United
States. Keply unsatisfactory, so de
clare war. Speech to my people: 'Ow
ing to this wicked, etc.'"
Emperor la (drilled.
Dispatch from Pomeranian farming
district to effect that a Cochin-China
hen has pecked at representation of
German eagle in picture book. At
once issued ultimatum to . Cochin
China demanding humble and com
plete apology, otherwise war would be
declared. Received immediate reply
stating that, as Cochin-China belongs
at present ,to France, I may save my
self the trouble of fresh declaration
of war. Do so.
Having five minutes before lunch, de
clare war on Spain, Portugal, Tibet,
Lapland, and the Principality of Mona
co. Reasons and ultimata to follow.
Apparently no more countries re
main to be challenged. Must find
come at all costs. Sudden inspiration.
Have issued ultimatum to my own
country that if she does not find fresh
countries for me to fight before mid
night war will ensue.
Midnight. No new countries found.
1 declare war on Germany.
Nor does Emperor William escape
the disdain of the cockney child:
I'd give-the German Emperor wot;
I would straight. I'd pull every
feather ant of 'is 'elmet.
The German spy has become ex
ceedingly popular with the illustrated
weeklies. Heath Robinson's latest
whimsical drawing pictures three stout
bobbies discovering spies in Tottenham
Court Road with a skillet of hot frank
furters, and Will Owen exercises his
imagination by portraying a bobby
making his daily spy report. "Case of
measles at No. 47, supposed to be Ger
man." Another zealous policeman on spy
duty, having got a motorist's name and
address, asks: "And is this lady your
wife?'" The reply, a torrent of oaths
very much In the vernacular, is suffi
cient evidence of innocence for the
bobby, who says: "Oh! pass along;
you're a Britisher all right."
"Ach!" says a German, who has been
placed under arrest as a spy. "Can't
you see I vas a British, ah right?"
Another way of discovering a German
these days is to enter a restaurant and
place under arrest any one found eating
aloud.
The moratorium is a constant source
of enjoyment to the humorists and
those who own money. Ethel is posi
tive that the moratorium is a big ship
one of the Cunarders. But Jack is
sure she Is wrong, since it was passed
through Parliament, and you can't pass
a ship through Parliament. Caroline,
too. knows that It isn't a ship. She
lias seen one. a sort of place where
they put dead kings and wealthy peo
ple. And this explanation by two of
George Belcher's creatures:
"Say, Bill, wot's this bloomin mortu
ferium they be tarkin' so much about?"
"Well, ye see, it's like this: You don't
pay nothln to nobody and the govern
ment pays it for ye."
"Well, that sounds a bit of all right,
doan't it?"
Xom-Voluoteers Lampooned.
While the Irish and the militants
have been lost sight of. the recruits
haven t been. They are everywhere.
and the drillmasters are not deriving
nearly so much fun from them as the
papers are. Those who are not volun

per. "Thousands of young men with
out ties," complains a writer in The
Express, "remain indifferent to the call
of their country." and Punch adds:
"We are afraid that this is true not
only of those -without ties, but also of
some who wear expensive cravats."
"Sorry," says the medical officer, "I
must reject you on account of your
teeth."
"Man," replied the would-be recruit,
"ye're making a gran' mistake. I'm no
wanting to bite the Germans; I'm
wanting to shoot 'em."
No one, not even Kaiser Wilhelm, is
treated as unmercifully as the English
man who hoards food; he Is the enemy

when the herrings he stored up at the
beginning of the war. one and all. go

thy when he is laid up with ptomaine
poisoning, and the presence of worms

forms any basis of judgment, then has
the management chosen wisely a piece of
stagecraft that supplies every demand
for forgetting dull care. It is a comedy,
one with the George M. Cohan trade
mark of manufacture and Eastern pro
duction, and Is full of the best little
Cohanesque flavor.
It has an- unique plot, too the re
generating process of a spendthrift
young, gay dog who has spent a for
tune on Broadway and is dubbed Broad
way because of his superlative art in
being a good fellow for everyone on
the gay white way. A fortune con
veniently left to him, in the form of a
factory for making chewing gum, halts
him in his mad career only long enough
to negotiate for its transfer into cash.
But the inevitable "right girt" happens
along in the demure small-town person
of the chief accountant at the factory.
Broadway has a friend, too, who sug
gests, aids and abets the plan of regen
eration, but it is the girl who really
puts over the big work. The story is
well told, too.
Action Quick Throughout.
Interest never flags, and one clever
sally trips quickly on the heels of an
other. Everyone in "Broadway Jones"
has a sense of comedy and the author
has not, been sparing with the bright
speeches. It is really a tribute to stock
performers, working every night and
studying evesy day on next week's bill,
that a comedy, full of short speeches,
slathered over with bits of business
that must get over like a little Niagara
or not at all, with every other line built
to get a laugh. it is a tribute, I repeat.
to the Baker flayers" versatility and
ability and skillful stagecraft of Mr.
Cook.
It is so easy to fall lust a little
short of registering in comedy. One
that moves slowly, or fails to garner
the laugh right on the spoken word is
dreary to witness. The Baker comedies
certainly do get over with a great hur
rah. This one is the best of the season.
It serves to promote Robert Gleckler
in the understanding of his audience.
It liked and laughed at and with the
self-confessed failure and spendthrift.
rejoiced when he put things over on
the "opposition," and buckled down to
business, sympathized with him in his
love episode and almost pitied him in
the relentless pursuit made after him
by an elderly wealthy widow to whom
he had been engaged when starvation
seemed imminent. Mr. Gleckler gets
the mental workings of young Broad
way's mind and depicts it joyously.
Cora Belle Bonnie is the girl, a sweet,
natural role, and one she plays with
wistful tenderness.
Roles Filled Capably.
William H. Powell provides a splen
did contrast to the role of Broadway in
ris alert.' thoroughly business-like pic
ure and presentation of Bob Wallace,
close friend of the spendthrift.
Mary Edgett Baker has one of her
ice-cream-soda-eating roles, which she
delivers with a set of happy grggles
and an ingenue air.
Jack Gilbert, good-looking young son
of Walter of the same name, clinches
the reputation for clevef acting in that
family. Jack is the local prodigy in
Jonesville. banjoing about and citing
his resemblances to famous men gone
before him.
Gilbert pere Is the grouchy foreman
at the factory.
Charles Halton and Florence Roberts
are genuine and delightfully funny as
Judge and Mrs. Spottswood, of Jones
ville. Helen Travers-gives a brilliant
bit as the all-pursuing, gushing widow,
and Harry Fraser Is the butler who
finally persuades the widow to wed him
rather than chase after Broadway.
Brandon Evans as an advertising cap
italist, and Walter Seigfried as the
"trust." complete the list of principals.
"Broadway Jones" is a winner.

Instead of showing four or five
reels the managers of the Sunset The
ater Inaugurated a new policy yester
day by putting on eight reels at the
afternoon performance. These included
a Mutual subject and the "Evil of the
Locks." a Lubin production replete
with stirring scenes and pictorial
mountains.
"Buster Brown" Outcaulfs comic
supplement creation, split a reel with
interesting educational pictures.
"Back to the Kitchen." a clever
comedy, concerned a rich rancher who
objects to his daughter marrying a
cowboy and advertises for a titled
foreigner. Mixups start as conse
quences. Dorothy Gish plays the part
of the girl with her usual charming
simplicity. '
"Bad Man Mason," a romance, is par
ticularly refreshing, the plot being
clean and exciting. The Mutual Week
ly with the new war pictures and the
Northwest Local with the football
teams of Portland, complete the bill.
STAGE STORY IS THRILLIXG
"Painted World"1 at Majestic Is
Startling From Beginning.
Dramatic incidents trowd rapidly
upon each other through the "Painted
World." which opened yesterday at the
Majestic Theater. The film carries
such a succession of thrills that the
interest of the audiences was keyed
until the last dramatic moment of the
act. The question that is raised by
the play, whether the mother had the
right to kill her babe to save her from
the temptations of the stage, remained
unanswered as the succeeding audiences
left the house.
The story is one of the footlights and
its temptations. The footlights are
there and the "temptations are hinted
at in such a way that they prove more
of a lesspn than an exciting story of
the moment.
The war scenes in the Hearst-Selig
pictures and several comedies of merit
complete the bill. The show ranks
probably as among the best ever pre
sented at the Majestic.
CLASSIC OP SOUTH FEATl'RE
"A Gentleman From Mississippi" Is
Columbia Attraction.
Tom Wise, who starred so many
years in "A Gentleman From Missis
sippi," came to .the Columbia Theater
yesterday in that great comedy drama.
He appears in the role of Senator
Langdon, a typical old-style, gallant
Southern gentleman, owner of a cotton
plantation 40 miles from a railroad sta
tion. The production offers a dozen
different studies of types. It also
contains a story vf Colonel Langdon. a
rich Southerner.- who is elected to the
United States Senate through the In
fluence of the trusts, who have the idea
that they can use him to further their
interests, but who proves a stumbling
block to their schemes.
There is a Teal old-fashioned South
ern plantation, with a cotton field, a
typical Southern mansion, a quaint
Southern village, scenes from the Na
tional capital and many other interest
ing features. A large cast supports
the star.
The production will be the chief at
traction of the Columbia today and to
morrow. FlaTICCITS SEEN AT STAR
