The Edwin Clifford Dramatic
Monday evening this excelleut com
bination opened an engagement of
three nights at the Opera House in
this city. The curtain rose upon a
small audience, but it is safe to saj
that a better entertained one ueve
congregated at the hall. "How Wo
men Love ; or, The Vigilantes," was
presented in an artistic manner that
has never been equaled in Columbus.
The cast was exceptionally strong as
a whole, Miss Josie Crocker and Mr.
Edwin Clifford, two bright stars in
their profession, being ably supported
by Miss Clara Douglass and Mr. Gra
ham Livingstone, while Mr. T. A.
Coleman, the comedian, was im
mense. The play is one of deep in
terest, which increases with every act,
until the final culmination of the plot
in the death of George Silsby (whose
villainy with a woman's'lweakness
comes near to wrecking a good man's
life) at the hands of the Damon-like

A Sncceivsfnl Scaxoa of Amuse
ment. Edwin Clifford's dramatic season
closed on Saturday night after an im
mense sucsess of the legitimate
drama. His present company is most
fortunately adapted to this lino of rep
resentations and gives him the sup
port without which he hesitates to as
sume the heavier roles. Mr. Clifford's
idea is that in the closer adherence to
the legitimate, support is necessary.
In this he is correct. He has given
us this season, therefore, a rare treat
in tragedy, with enough sensation to
season it to the popular taste.
The sedate Hamlet, Richelieu, the
worshipped of France, the tender
Romeo, plotting Richard, and the
warning Detruchio were each brought
out in their turn with an immense
reception. The pieces were nightly
greeted with unbounded enthusiasm
by the most intelligent and critical
audiences ever assembled in this city.
Macbeth the Drunkard, Nick of the
woods, for a change, coupled with
Ingomar, add last but not least Enoch
Arden. In the versatility which is
necceseary to compass a range of
characters some of them so widely
different, Mr. Clifford has proven
himself eminently at home. He
has given us the fiery sword of Rich
ard with the same satisfaction that, as
Claude Melnot, he has painted the
beautiful picture to Pauline, and ask
ed her if she loved it. It has been a
round of ecstacies, a series of entran
cing interests and a season of most
acceptable entertainments. But, per
haps, more acceptable than all it has
been one of rare financial success and
proves that when Mr. Clifford under
takes it, he can attract audiences
second to none who attempts the
stage in this city. Mr. Clifford goes
north and west from here, where he
will doubtless be received by im
mense audiences. 57. Paid Pioneer
