Of course "The Lilac Domino" Is
really more a dash of lavender than
merely lilac a pale sister tone. Also
It Is an enchanting musical production
with a score that ripples and sways
and swing's and ripples some more, and
then floats dreamily and lazily along in
variety of tempos, but forever and al-
ways with superlative charm.
It is light operaish in quality of
exquisite lilting melodies, and of a
gorgeous colorful magnificence. There's
tovous comedy about it. too, and an
abundance of snappy action.
Some there were of the big audience
who called it a three-act comic opera,
others relerred to It as iignt opera, a
few pronounced it "opera bouffe."
Hedging about and skirting any
commitment, let's call It a splendid
musical success.
It is a big production, sponsored by
norm other than Andreas Dippel, a
name with which to conjure.
Music Is Dreamy.
The score is seductively "beautiful:
It is the heart work of Charles Cuci
Her, and it is such as to appeal to
musical devotees.
For the most part "The Lilac Do-
mine" is a Joyous affair. Paradox
ically it gives us at once classical mu
sic of genuine merit, and popular,
catchy mere tunes. Which is perhaps
the reason of its universal appeal.
Ccenically it is a tremendous pro
ductton. It has a host of capable prin
cipals, large chorus, an augmented or
chastra. smart and correct costuming
and it s all new.
Its actual charm, however, abides in
Its music, its singing, ringing, glad
some, lilting music that runs and
dances and trips and warbles through
three acts.
No One Is Particular Star.
The Lilac Domino" is of a rare ex
cellence and certainly of a convincing
merit. No one star is featured and by
an untoward circumstance in events of
this nature, the cast is nicely balanced,
with each member of it unusually capa
ble. There's a story, too not one to
stagger the senses and produce brain
fog, but at all events a story.
There's an impecunious Count, and he
has a lot of fortune-hunting friends
who all plot to marry money and so
get away from the everlasting grind
of poverty.
The selected heiress by chance falls
In love with the impecunious Count,
but throws hint over auickly when she
finds she was won in a dice-rolling
contest. In the meantime Cupid Is at
work. So it all ends as happily as the
proverbial wedding bell
Yvonne Darle, vivid and youthful,
played the dominotsh maid, the heiress,
who wore the lilac domino in and out
of the plot. She la vivacious, alert and
piquant. She sings and dances ador
ably.
Marie Hamilton was Leonie. the other
heroine, who shared all the fun and
chagrin from being often mistaken for
the wearer of the lilac domino. Miss
Hamilton is altogether charming in the
role, exhibiting alluring feminine wiles.
and a saucy camaraderie hat proved
wholly fetching.
French Role Played Naturally.
Andrea Corday is really a Parisiennc,
and so plays a French character role
with ease and color.
Bradford Kirkbride, as the impecuni
. ous Count, plays and sings with a dash
and pleasing deviltry. His two im
pecunious friends, Casimer. played by
Edward Crawford, and Prosper, played
by Joseph Corey, added greatly to the
with their every appear -
amusement
ance.
Harry Hermsen played vividly an old
violinist, who is described by Prosper
as "making music out of the insides of
a poor old cat." Archibald Gilchrist,
as a beaux, plays with spirit and sings
well, George Curzon is a capable father
and there's a medley of dominos and
guests and men. Specialty dances ga
lore, a perfectly joyful travesty on the
late Russian ballet, and song, song and
more song, contribute to a splendid
evenlnsr.
"The Lilac Domino" will be presented
tonight and tomorrow night and at
matinee tomorrow.
GRAYSON BEING OPPOSED
Senate fears Precedent Set by "Wil
ton in Violating Tradition.
OREGON IAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Jan. 25. President Wilson
jabbed a hornet's nest when he nomi
nated his personal medical and golf
attendant. Dr. Cary T. Grayson, to be
a Rear-Admiral in the Navy.
He may be able to force the Senate
to confirm the nomination, but he is
ging to have a merry time over this
promotion before the Senate gets
through with it. unless all signs fail
for there is today an overwhelming
sentiment in the Senate against jump
ing Dr. Grayson over the heads of i;
other officers of the Medical Corps,
men who now rank him, and under the
old seniority rule, are f irst entitled to
promotion.
Dr. Grayson Is a fine young fellow who
has made a great hit in ashington.
President Wilson did not bring him to
the White House. He was there during
the latter part of the Taft Administra
tion and remained as medical attend-!
ant to Hhe President under the present
Administration. Dr. Grayson also has
been tiie almott coD.sta.ut soli com-
panion of President Wilson and played
Cupid In the President's last romance,
for it was the genial doctor who first
brought the President and Mrs. Gait
together. Because of the good care
he has taken of the President's health
and for other reasons, the President
naturally is exceedingly fond of Dr.
Grayson
At present Dr. Grayson, who has
merely the rank of Lieutenant-Commander,
is drawing a salary of $2400
a year, while on shore duty: as Ad
miral his shore pay would be $5000, and
his sea pay $8000, but the understand
ing is that even as Rear-Admiral he
would remain at the "White House as
medical advisor of the President, and
therefore receive only the S5000 fixed
by law.
At the time he sent In the Grayson
nomination the President also 'nomi
nated Surgeon-General Braisted to the
same rank, but gave Braisted the se
nior appointment. Braisted. it con
firmed, would be the ranking medical
officer in the Navy for the next 11
years, and Dr. Grayson, who would be
second officer during that time, would
then become ranking memDer or ine
corps and hold that rank for. the en
suing 15 years. Thus by two strokes
of the pen the President has made it
Impossible for any officer, other than
Braisted and Grayson, to become head
of the Medical Corns for the next 26
years, and all officers who by seniority
would be entitled to head the corps
during that time, would be retired at
lower rank - than their service had
earned them.
There is no criticism of Dr. Gray
son as a man or as a doctor, but Sena
tors, irrespective of party, are as a
rule displeased with the appointment,
and fear its effects. For if the Presi
dent, without' obtaining the recom
mendation of the General Board of the
Navy, can make promotions at will.
much of the incentive tor bard worn
among the officers of the Navy will be
taken away and the service will suffer.

EDUCATION COMMISSIONER SAYS
BILL. NOT TRUE TO SURVEY.

OLYMPIA. Wash.. Jan. 25. (Special.)
J. Sutton, chairman or the highe
educational survey commission, tonight
designated II. B. No. 15. the bill ove
which the Washington University an
the State College are fighting, as a libel
on the commission report. This declar

charged that the bill had been draw-
by Representative Victor Zednick, sec
retary of the commission, without au
thority or approval of the commission

Zednick hotly responded that Sutto
had libeled him in the statement an
had not told the truth as to authority.
asserting he had tne approval or uom
missioners A. H. Imus, E. E. Boner and
Tom Brown in drawing the bills.
Brown substantiated Zednick and " at

Sutton reiterated his declaration that
the bill is a misinterpretation of the
report and declared Zednick's bill had

Chicago Tribune Files Answer
in
$1,000,000 Action by Ford.
CHICAGO. Jan. 25. Pleas in the II.-
000,000 libel suit of Henry Ford, of
Detroit, against the Chicago Tribune
were filed by the newspaper today' in
the United States District Court. The
suit was based on editorial criticism
of Mr. Ford for his opposition to pre
paredness.
The newspaper's answer sets forth
what it terms complete justification
for its criticism of the manufacturer
for his alleged "efforts to block Na
tional preparedness." Emphatic denial
is made of any spirit of malice in the
remarks printed about Mr. Ford and
his pacifist activities.
A comprehensive review of the great
war and its effect on public opinion
and National security in this country.
and what is termed "the Mexican men
ace" in its relations to public opinion
in the United States is made, as the
basis of the policy of the paper for
preparedness. In condemning the view
of Mr. Ford, the answer of the paper
says that its criticism of Mr. Ford and
his efforts were "not actuated in any
sense by a spirit of vlndictiveness."

House and Senate Committees
Differ Only as to Methods
for Consolidations'.
ALL' WORK FOR ECONOMY
Both Bodies Want Tax Commission
Combined With Some Other De
partment, Either Public Serv
ice or Board of Control.
STATE CAPITOL. Salem, Or.. Jan. 25.
(Special.) When the consolidation
committee of the Senate and the con
solldation committee of the House ad
journed their second joint meeting to
night this situation was apparent:
rsotn committees, so far as sugces-
tions have been made up to this time.
nold identical views as to what con
solidations of state offices and depart
ments "should be made.
The only difference between them is
relative to the method of making these
consolidations.
The Senate committee feels that the
state tax committee should be con
solidated with some other state depart'
ment. So does the Rouse committee.
And the difference between them as to
how this consolidation can best be ef
fected is not great.
One Bis; Department Planned.
On the other hand, the House com.
mite proposes to combine into one new
department the present Industrial Accl
dent Commission, the Bureau of Labor
Statistics and Inspector of Factories
and Workshops, the Industrial Welfare
Commission and the Board of Inspec
tors of Child Labor.
So does the Senate committee. Here
again the difference is only one of
method and on that the two committees
are not far apart.
Both committees apparently are sin
cerely ready to make concessions to the
end that the resulting bills to be
framed and introduced Jointly shall
make for thoroughly efficient, econom
ical and workable consolidations.
The tax commission problem would
seem to be the simpler of solution of
these two consolidations, though this
simplicity may be more seeming than
real.
House and Senate Plans Differ.
The Sena e committee advocates con
solidation of the tax commission with
the public service commission, which
already receives many of the same sta
tistics as to valuation of public serv
ice corporations as those on which the
tax commission basis its findings.
A bill consolidating the two. which
the Senate had passed before the two
committees began their joint meetings.
is now before them.
The House holds morn to the plan
advocated by Governor Withycombe in
his message to the Legislature of con
solidating the tax commission with the
board of control, composed of the Gov
ernor, becretary of State and btate
Treasurer, with a tax expert at a sal
ary of $2500 to handle the work.
Whether the Senate or the House
plan is finally adopted, it seems certain
that a tax expert will be provided to
look after the technical part of the
work. Either plan would effect a sav
ing of from $10,000 to $15,000 for the
biennium.
Both the public service commission
and the board of control have expressed
the belief that the work of the tax
commission could be satisfactorily han
dled if it is consolidated with their
respective departments.
The two committees at their meeting
tonight appointed a sub-committee of
two members from each body to get
together on the tax commission bills,
frame a tentative substitute for them
both and report it to the Joint meet
ing tomorrow.
This sub-committee is composed of
Senators Barrett and Orton and Repre
sentatives Porter and Portwood.
STORAGE BILL CAUSES WORRY
Hood River Apple Growers See No
Need for Registry System.
HOOD RIVER, Or.. Jan. 25. (Spe
cial.) The cold-storage bill, intro
duced in the lower house of the Leg
islature by Representative Bean, has
created some worry here on the part
of apple growers. The bill is meant,
according to Mrs. C H. Castner, of this
city, to apply only to refrigeration
plants storing meats and vegetables.
It provides that all foods must be reg
istered both on receipt and withdrawal.
Foods may only be stored for a period
of 12 months.
The time limit would not affect fruit
growers, but it is feared that the bill
might make it necessary for apple
storage plants to keep a registry on
the receipt and withdrawals of fruit.
This, it is considered, would create un
necessary labor and expense.
ANTI-ALIEN BILL LIKED
HOOD RIVER MEN OPPOSE JAPAN
ESE OWSIXG LAND.
Speakers at "Legislative Luncheon'
Declare Orientals and Americans
Will ot Amalgamate.
HOOD RIVER. Or.. Jan. 25. (Spe
cial.) The first public utterances of
local citizens in favor of the anti-alien
land bill, recently introduced in the
Legislature by Senator Wilbur, were
made today at the weekly "legislative
luncheon" of the Commercial Club, by
rr J. D. Guttery. president of the
club; J. H Koberg and A. I. Mason.
All speakers declared themselves op.
nosed to Japanese ownership of land,
not because they were unfriendly to
the Orientals as a people, but because
they believed that the Japanese could
not be amalgamated with the Amer
ican neoole. No action, however, was
taken by the club or grangers.
Following the club luncheon the
ioint legislative committee of the club
and county Pomona Grange took cogni
zance of a Supreme Court decision
which specifies that the people through
the initiative cannot amend laws en
acted by the Legislature without a sub
sequent confirmation by the Legisla
ture.
A resolution was adopted Instructing
the legislative delegation of Hood
River County, in case the decision ap
plied to the local situation, to introduce
a bill providing lor tne salaries
local county officials to remain as
fixed through an initiative bill adopted
by the county in 1914. At the general
election of that year Hood Rive
County voters reduced the salaries o
Clerk. Sheriff, Assessor and School Su
perintendent.
