STORY OF THE PLAY

GEORGE BEBAN IN
"HIS SWEETHEART"

JOE, a good natured Italian, runs a basement ice, coal and wood establishment in the cheap Italian "East Side." Trina, daughter of old Capino, a cobbler, lives next door. She is very fond of Joe and is much relieved when she learns that Joe's "sweetheart," who arrives from Italy, is none other than his little old "Mamma Mia," his mother.

Godfrey Kelland, district attorney, is a candidate for the governorship, and Joe's sympathies and efforts are enlisted in his behalf. The Weasel, a notorious crook, is arrested as he seeks refuge in Joe's house, and suspicions are cast upon Mamma Mia. Just at this time Mrs. Kelland loses a diamond pin which is discovered in Mamma Mia's possession. Baby Kelland has place the pin in the basket of clothes which Mamma Mia is to wash and she is found "guilty" and sentenced to two years in the penitentiary. In the meantime, Joe and his mother have witnessed an attempt upon Kelland's life and assisted him, but nevertheless Kelland is very vigorous in his prosecution of Mamma Mia. A little later Mrs. Kelland discovers the baby putting another piece of jewelry in the basket and she decides that Joe's mother is innocent.

Two crooks from the gang determine to put a stop to Kelland's activities and to "plant" a golf ball filled with nitro-glycerine so that Kelland will be blown up as by an unknown accident. They play upon Joe's feelings and induce him to place the ball. Just as Kelland is about to strike the ball, Mrs. Kelland and Trina come into the grounds, and to save them Joe takes the blow upon his own body. Joe's confession that the ball was intended for im incites Kelland's anger, but Mrs. Kelland's story of the baby's innocent part in the tragedy, and her pleadings, soften the politician's heart, the little Italian family is reunited and Trina's happiness also secured.

1. ORCHESTRAL SELECTION:
"PRINCESS PAT" ..... Victor Herbert
Strand Concert Orchestra, CARL EDOUARDE, Cond'tor

Victor Herbert, born in Dublin, Ireland, February 1st, 1859, is a grandson of Samuel Lover, the famous Irish novelist. At seven he was sent to Germany to begin his musical education. His first position of prominence was that of principal violin cello-player in the Court Orchestra at Stuttgart, and he was heard in many important concerts throughout Europe before accepting in 1886 an engagement as solo cellist in the Metropolitan Orchestra in New York. For a number of years he was first cello in the Theodore Thomas Orchestra, and more recently in Anton Seidl's orchestra, where he was also associate conductor. In 1894 he was appointed bandmaster of the famous 22nd Regiment Band, succeeding P.S. Gilmore. He is the most popular of our present day composers, having written several very successful comic operas.
