Valeska Suratt, the celebrated Amer
ican actress, will be seen at Ye Liber
ty today, Wednesday and Thursday in
the Jesse L. Lasky production of Ma
rion Fairfax's thrilling drama, "The
Immigrant," a Paramount picture.
In "Tho Immigrant" Miss Suratt is
seen in a characterization absolutely
different from that which she has here
tofore appeared, cither upon the stage
or the screen.
Miss Suratt is first seen ns a poor
Russian immigrant bound for America.
Later she is given ample opportunity to
wear many of the striking gowns for
which she is so justly famous.
Ono of the big thrilling scenes of the
pi ly is the blowing up of a great dam,
holding back an immense volume of
water and the destruction of a large
house by the released torrent. These
scenes are said to be the most realistic
ever presented on a screen. The dam
ami the house were especially built for
the occasion by the Lasky company tt
an enormous expense. Three hundred
laborers worked night and day for two
weeks in order to build the dam.
The entire production is of the usual
Lasky thoroughness and excellence
while the cast supporting Miss Suratt
is headed by the two distinguished Las
ky stars, Theodore Huberts and Thorn .is
Meehan and supported by other mem
bers of tho Lasky all star organization.

Over Lusitania Tangle
By Cary W. Ackerman.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
Berlin, Feb. 15. Settlement of the
Lusitania negotiations has suddenly be
come the center of violent party storms.
The newspapers today attacked Chan
cellor Von Bcthniann-Hollw eg and
Foreign Secretary Von Jagow for fail
ing to explain terms of the settlement
in tho iciehstag, and declared that
these officials ought to tell the public
whether Germany had made further
concessions tending to cripple Cier
many's submarine warfare.
The papers, however, expressed de-1
light at the unofficial reports of a!
settlement, inasmuch ns they are anx
ious that good relations between tier
many and America shall be maintained.
They considered that neither side had
triumphed, nnd believed that a compro
mise on both sides was more gratifying
than if one nation had yielded all to
Conservatives, desirous of annexing
Belgium because of its harbors and its
