MO, ICE DAMS UP THE RIVER A Million Dollars Damage Done At Niagara Falls GERMANS HOOTED AND HISSED The Production Home' of "An Englishman's Berlin, Berlin. April German ver- sion of the play "An Englishman's was produced at the Ncucs theatre tonight before a distinguished audience, which included high offi- cials of the Imperial Court. This is the play which created a sensation in England dealing as it does with the invasion of that country by a foreign force and originally was thought to be aimed' at Germany. Its reception tonight was so hostile that it is improbable that the play will be. repeated. It practically was laughed, hooted and hissed off the stage.
