Right at the outset let there be regis
tered a protest agalnat the taste of the
authoress In choosing London as the. seen,
of her very successful play. Incident, such
a. the one on which It. action are based
are not uncommon In any clime; people
quite a. .mart a. any she presents might
be found on this side; men as wesk as
Arnold Wlnnlfrlth have been found by
other authors In New Tork (note the In
stance of Nick Van Alstyne and hi. singu
larly suggestive prototype, both In name
and Character. Dick Van Buren); and more
potent than any other reason, Mr. Good
win would not have been forced to parade
his unquestionable Americanism, aa the
utterance, of an Englishman. Otherwise
the play well merits the attention thst ha.
been given it. It is an old theme, but Is
handled with much tact and In a manner
decidedly original. Other authors have
found It ronvenlegt to remove by death or
some other means equally as effective the
main offender before relieving his scape
goat of the charge, but Mis. Ryley boldly
sends the offended wife and the offending
husband out to face their wrecked honey
moon and to mak an endeavor by patience
to patch up their love again. This might
not have been possible If the disclosures
had come after a few years of wedded
bliss. In other ways the theme Is handled
with equal daring and with an adroitness
that Is quite an acceptable substitute for
the efforts commonly made to excuse or
Justify the conduct of one or the other of
the guilty ones. In this Instance the man
simply admits that h. is tired of his play
thing and the girl accepts the condition
as a matter of course and goes out Into
the world to look up a situation. The
dialogue sparkles In spots, with no ap
pearance of an effort at epigrams and no
approach to homilies on any topic. It Is
mildly satirical at times, but not enough
to give any flavor of acerbity to Its smooth
flow of all but unrestrained humor. In a
word. It Is quite what might happen In
Mr. Goodwin takes the part of a brother
who temporarily allows himself to become
the victim of a mistake to shield his sis
ter's hspplness, snd who promptly rebels
when his own happiness comes Into the
play. His main departure from the Good
win we have known In other plays Is In the
fact that he Is quieter, mora subdued. In
his methods. He doesn't make any noise.
Isn't boisterous at any time, and still gives
to the quiet ending of the acts a strength
that Is really Impressive. And he absolutely
refuse, to be serious, even when the action
of the play would not suffer by an exhibi
tion of sobriety of conduct.
Miss Tlllbury. who Is supporting Mr.
Goodwin on hi. present tour. Is decidedly
clever. Her part Is a small one, but out
of It she makes a good deal and show.
evidence of ability that would easily take
care of a much more exacting role than
her present one. Miss Dean Is a charming
Ingenue, and acquits herself with credit. If
anything Is to be said of Miss Irwin's pres
entation of the part of ' the girl who Is
toyed with and cast aside, it must be that
she accept, the fate with a stolidity that
seem, hardly natural. Fred Tlden gives
to the part of a ead a degree too much ot
caddlshness. A little show of spirit at
time, would relieve the situation, and prob
ably mora nearly realise what the authoress
had In mind. Other members of the cast
have been selected with care, and the com
pany as a whole Is well qualified to sup
port the star. The staging Is adequate,

The West Omaha Improvement club, at

decided to make the completion of the

to drop all other public matters until this
Improvement is accomplished. With this
end in view It was decided to Invite City
Engineer Rosewater, Councilman Hunting

paving and sewerage committee to attend
the next club meeting at Forty-first and"

wise to wait until the city has an official
