MOVIES TO AID LEGITIMATE COMPANIES WILL
BE TRIED OUT THIS FALL BY WILLIAM ELLIOTT
LieUer Company Preparing to Film "The Garden of Paradise," Wlich, It Is Said, Will Be One of the Most Expensive Productions This Season-The
Century Opera Company Arranges for Ser ies of Talks to Stimulate Interest in Operas - '
BY tUJID F. IXJNRROAN.
NEW YORK, Juno 27. (Special.)
William Elliott, son-in-law of
David Belasco, is a theatrical
manager who has decided to try some
Ithlng new. He Is the owner and pro
ducer of "Kitty MacKay," the Scotch
comedy which has been one of the
season's successes, and In the Fall a
dumber of companies will produce It
on the road.
As managers always try to make
road companies reproductions of the
original organization, Mr. Elliott will
do the same thing. The present method
lias been to drill the out-of-town or
ganizations In New York. ad permit
the players to see how the actors In
the parent company portray their parts.
This works all right at the start, but
when changes necessarily occur in the
east, a more or less uneven produc
tion is likely to be given.
The way Mr. Elliott plans to get
around this Is to take motion pic
tures of the play as given by the
original company. Each road organiza
tion will be supplied with a copy of
this, and take it with them on tour. At
stated Intervals the film will be run
fT. for the benefit of the players.
Especially will this happen when a
new actor or actress Joins. Any time
the road stage manager thinks there
is a falling down in his production, he
will give a picture show, and point out
to his company just where and how
they have altered for the worse.
Mr. Elliott's innovation will cost him
several thousand dollars, and it will
all be clear loss, as the pictures will
not be- shown to the public and hence
there will be no revenue from them.
The first big production which the
I,iebler Company will make this Fall
will be "The Garden of Paradise," a
spectacular romance by Edward Shel
don. It is to be shown at the Man
hattan Optra-House, which has an
enormous stage and plenty of seating
capacity. C. Alexander Ramsey, the
chief costumer of the Lieblers, has
sailed for Europe, and will go first to
Paris, where -he will consult with
Joseph Vhban. who is now at work on
the designs and costumes. "The Garden
of Paradise," it Is said, will be one of
are most expensive productions of the
season, which goes to show that the
Lteblers are managers who see hope
of a better theatrical year than we
have had of late.
Thomas A. Wise, one of the most
popular men on the stage with mem
bers of the theatrical profession, has
been grabbed up by David Belasco. He
lias been engaged for one of the lead
ing roles In "The Vanishing Bride,"
the new farce by Sidney Rosenfcld.
"The Vanishing Bride" will open the
Fall season at the Belasco Theater.
Milton and Sargent Aborn. general
managers of the Century Opera Com
pany, have arranged for a series of
six talks on opera at the Century
Opexa-House during the coming season.

They will be given on Sunday after
noons, beginning late in September.
The talks are not to be lectures, nor
are they to be strictly educational.
They are planned for the entertainment
of Century subscribers, partly with a
view of stimulating their interest in
the opera-house, but mainly with the
idea of assisting the hearers to a fuller
enjoyment of the performance of an
opera after having heard It discussed.
The "opera talks" will be delivered
by Havrah Hubbard, who has been
presenting them In Boston and through,
out the New England states for sev
eral years under the auspices of the
Boston Opera-House, for which he is

for many years musical editor of the
Chicago Tribune, and is editor In
ohief of the American Encyclopedia and
History of Music

plimentary to the subscribers to the
Century Opera Company. The most
desirable seats will be allotted to those
who have already subscribed, and
future subscribers will be assigned

BUDGET CUT $11,000,000
Governor Glynn's Vetoes of Items In
Appropriation Bills Big.
NEW ' YORK. June 23. Governor
Glynn has completed his consideration
of the appropriation bills passed at the
extra session of the Legislature. His
vetoes of various Items of expenditure
will effect -during the fiscal year com
mencing October 1 a reduction of $11.
000.000 from those of the present fiscal
year, thus making unnecessary a direct
state tax next year.
Governor Glynn vetoed appropriations
aggregating $5,787,000 passed at the
regular session of the Legislature and
$1,609,000 passed at the extra session,
together with reappropriations aggre
gating $2,125,000. The appropriations
for the general fund next year are $8,
000.000 less than for the present year,
and for the sinking fund $1,300,000 less,
while the amount of reappropriations
is $1,700,000 less. The Governor cut
$475,000 out of the annual appropria
tion bill, $283,000 out of the annual sup
ply bill, and $746,000 out of the appro
priations for new construction work
for state institutions.
' The total approoriations for the com
ing fiscal year will be $47,670,000, as
against $57,962,000 for the present fiscal
year. The anticipated receipts for the
next fiscal year from all sources are
estimated at $49,000,000. The appro
priations for the coming year include
$40,000,000 for the general fund and
$7,670,000 for the state sinking funds.
Among the items vetoed by the Gov
ernor were $200,000 for legislative
printing, because it will not be needed
until next year, and $100,000 for the
publication of the session laws for a
similar reason. Another Item vetoed
was $50,000 for the private banking
bureau in the State Banking Depart
ment, because in the Governor's opin
ion a sufficient appropriation Is made
for this purpose in the supply bill.

weeks at the Century beginning Sep

will only have four performances as the
plan of the direction is to carry four
performances of each opera over Into

will consist of four performances of
"Carmen" followed by "1. Boheme."

"William Tell," "L Travlata." "Lohen
grin." "Lucia," "Pagllscci." "Cavallorla
Rusticana." "Faust." "Tannhauser" and
The Barber of Seville."
The direction will return to the Idea
of having some of these works given
in their original language for at least
two performances. In the bellrf that
there is a public which desires to hear
