It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1927 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

According to Ibdb, this was used in Rosamund's 1907 The Shoo-Fly Regiment, but one WorldCat entry talks about a "1902 version" and a "1917 version". So it seems to pre-date The Shoo-Fly Regiment and was not conceived specifically for it. Therefore, it will stay on its own page.
