Gossip About Plays, Players and Playhouses
, V OXR feature of the week at
the loral theater 1 to be con
sidered above the other II In
the number of ripple who went
there to hear the elertlon re
turns. All the thestrrs did big
business on election niht fid the players
found themselves Interrupted from time 10
lime by the announcement that Bquedunk
or rodtink hail Bonn a certain numfcer of
Votes for certain candidate, and the ap
plause wan so mixed that It was Impossi
ble to tell If the player or the telegraph
operator was the one Intended, or if It was
merely the expression of glee at the ap
parent sjcress of a favored candidate. But
that matters not; It was gala .'night at
the theaters, and after . they had. turned
out their lights the crowds Went out and
Joined the crowds on the street around tho
newspaper offices anxt watched the picture
shows and the stereoptlcon bulletins. This
merely goes to show what, a good-natured
animal the public Is and how cheerfully1
takes his amusements. All summer and
full he was wrought slowly Into a frenry
of excitement over the approaching elec
tion and the campaign culminated In the
exciting finish usually given' to such' af
fslrs. "Election day dawned bright and
fair," aa the rorrespgndent usually starts,
his report, and the voters hurried away to
pull the party lever, and during the day
talked more or less 'Connectedly about tlie
probable outcome and- tts -general effect on
the affairs of luiuianity. . But when the
pnlls had closed and the shades of night
had drawn around the fair village, then
. the public hied himself and .herself away
' 1ii the theater and .there , In. a,. coy. .seat
,-toVik a double dos of amusement by watch
Ins; the actors arid "listening to the bulle
tins. Those who tuck td 'the streets 'also
had a good time and - all- - ''passed off
quietly, a heavy vote, .being polled." ' to
again quota the correspondvlt, Much. set
tling of bits followed, and If It hadn't been
far the Nebraska performance the election
Would have been forgotten the next day.
;But the folks 'wltowTnt. to the theater
lvat night are' not likely to aton- forget
; what they saw there. At Jeast not those
.. who went to tho Burwood,, fof -Ihey Wero
tftated to another splendid performance
t a fine play. DnVld Belasco is admit
tedly a master of melodrama. He now
et-d then approaches a dramatic situation,
but for the moat part he avoids this, and
sticks persistently to the melodrama. He
' of ce was theatric, and is still at times,
but thlg quality shows very little in his
later work. Omaha has had two fine ex
amples of his cruftmanshlp of late, "The
jiuslc Master" and "The Girl of the
(Joldon West." Not that Mr, Bolasco
wrote the first named play, but few will
nutation that his staging of "The Music
Mi'Ster" had more to do with Its success
thun Charles Klein's writing of It. In less
- capable hands than those of Belasco, the
. Hce would have fallen flat But "The
. Girl of the Golden West" Is Belasco'a all
, tbe wuy. He wrote It and he staged It, and
' every bit of "business" In It la from his
brain. 80, If it has anything to commend
. It to the favor of the world, that Is due
to Mr. Belasco. It gives us a picture of a
life that has passed; rude but picturesque
life, wb.cn men .were very close to nature.
Indeed. and nature was undisturbed in. Its
rugged, primitive grandeur. Bret Harta
and others "have given ua descriptions ot
these men. and Belasco has to soma de
gree visualised the typo. It in nearly im
possible to present them on the stage at
they actually existed around the roaring
placer diggings of the golden west In that
far-off day of '4B. We sing the songs and
, lead th etorles and try to fix the picture
, In our minds, but we have, neither the
background nor foreground. , These men
came and spent their brief day and disap
peared. They left r-o deep Impress on any
. thing. Their lives were toilsome, their
pleasures were primitive, their Joys were
evanescent, and Mr. Belasco is probably as
accurate In his presentation of the charac
ters as any one else. There Is no one to
dispute him, and this being the case, his
offer must be accepted.
Now and then a point projects on which
some thread of criticism might reasonably
he lodged, but it was not one of thesu
seised upon by a contemporary who ob
jected that the Girl might not appreciate
Dante. It is altogether likely that from
a purely aesthetic point of view the Girl
did not appreciate Dante, but she showed
in many ways that she had a mind in
whose virgin soli had already germinated
' the- seeds of' artistic conception.' Her
speech about the mountains, of her ride
" down the valley, of her reveries In front of
the little mission church, all Indicate the
' budding Imagination. It is easy to believe
thst not very far back in her ancestry were
men and women of at least comparative
culture. Her description of her mother, in
her devotion to her father shows conclu-1
slvely that her mother was of the true
sort of womun, and it Is not Improbable
that out of these, should come a girl who
even In her Ignorance could formulate
something of a notion of the beautiful
, thoughts of. Dante. U is one of the greai
. est privileges, probably, of ignorance, that
. the lovely things of the world appeal first
to the mind that is unsullied by the har
row of enlightenment. "Iai, the poor In
tku, whose untutored mind," saw "God in
the clouds and heard him in the wind,"
, was of this sort, and so was the girl.
It la much more pleasant to contemplate
, Miss Elliott as the Girl than as Olga Hoff
, man,, Madame Hoffman was the product
of ultra culture. In a certain sense, a type
of. pur highest civilised development and,
. unfortunately, still actuated by the primi
tive passions thut led her Into ways of
- reeklessneis and wrong. The Uirl, on the
other hand, is without culture and devoid
. of refinement the rough product of a
rough time, and yet her nature glows wttli
the pure fire of true and innate nobleness
that has always endeared the real woman
to mankind. 8he la not subtle In any of
her waya, nor involved In her nature.
Frank and open in her walk and conversa-
. tlon, genuine In iter feeling of camaraderie
with the rude men about her, she ex
emplliies perfectly the goodness of sim
plicity, and Miss Klllott gives to this char
acter an even mare satisfactory touch than
1 site lavished on Olga Hoffman.
To the part ot the cultured woman, shs
Liousiit the resources of her experience
and comprehensive grasp of mind, but
fully realised the handicap placed upon her
la the very nature ot things. While ahe
I4ayed the part artistically and without
sparing any effort to make it real, It lacked
.that warm sympathy and rich spontaneity
that has made the Girl a positive dellgut.
'IQroMtUhe moment she swings on the stage,
.'eaierging from tha dance .hall to the bar
room, and greet Kance, Sonora and Trini
'tied aid the others with a cherry "Hello,
loys! are you being served all right?" to
the final moment when she turna her back
forever on her beloved Sierras and stands
silently weeping, her brad against the
bosom ot her road agent lover, she does
not get off the key. She has taken tha
prt at its proper pitch, and always with
the development of the girl Into the woman
, In view, she moves from point to point
. with precision that brings tha perfect re
sult. Her comedy Is of the most dellgat
Tut am. la tavt. Miss Ullolt has been a
KV .. ' - k "
revelation even to those who have watched I
her work closest, and In the merry mo
m'nts of the Oirl has flashed out an en
tirely new phase of her capacity as an ac
tress. Altogether, the verdict given out at
tiie end of the first performance Is more
than Justified at the close of the week. It
Is In many respects, If not atV the very
best work that Miss Klllott has done in
Omaha, and this Is saying much, for all
her work has been of a high order.
Mr. Grew has contributed to the success
of the play by what Is probably his best
work in Omsha. I'ntll this week he has
been open to a very, serious charge of In
difference. At no time has It seemed tbat
he was entering with his full strength on
the delineation of bis character, but In the
role of Dick Johnson he has cast aside Ms
sloth and has worked faithfully and seal
ously. and has really made the part im
pressive. Mr. Todd's Jack Ranee has been
good. Mr. Murdock's Bonora nnd Mr. In
graham's Nick were splendidly done, and
Mr. Connor In the little part of Joe gave
a most convincing exhibition of his ca;
paclty for character work. While he has
the stage for but a few moments, he shows
wonderfully well, and yet It would have
been a surprise If he had not, for Mr.
Connor very early established himself ns
an actor of ability and has thoroughly
earned all the praise that has been given
him In Omaha.

"Dolly Reforming; Herself" Will Be
- ' Presented In London First.
, IJNDON, Nov. 7. (Special Correspon
dence.) Henry Arthur Jones' new play,
which it has been decldod to call "Polly
Reforming Herself." and which will make
Its appearance In New York this wlntr,
was presented "by Frederick Harrison
at the Haymarket theater on the evening of
November 4. Ethel Irving, whose perfor
mance in Somerset Maugham's "Lady
Frederick" has secured her position as a
London Mar, created the leading part,
and the cast also Included such excellent
actors as C. M. Lowne and Robert Loralne.
This arrangement necessitates bringing
to an end the run of "Lady Frederick,"
the last performance of which was given
on Saturday. The run of this remark
able comedy easily constitutes a record and
knocks Into a cocked hat the old superstition
that one removal spells ruin for a play. For
Maugham's comedy has weathered no leas
than four, and has crowded nightly every
one of the five thesters In which It has
made its bow. Monday last completed Its
first year, but there is reason for believing
not its last, for, according to present ar
rangements. It will be revived aa soon aa
Ethel Irving, whose name is linked with
the part, is again free.
Now that Jerome has two successful
playa running In west end theaters, the
air is full of Tumors concerning his future
efforts as a playwright. It has been er
roneously reported that a new comedy
which he -had Just completed had been
acquired by a "young management."
Jerome professes ignorance of any such
arrangement and as he Is a most frank,
open-minded Individual, his denial Is prob
ably in good faith.
The newest of his plays is of a much
lighter character than the two which are
enjoying so much success In London at
present and more In line with what the
readers of his books would have expected
from his pen. It is of three acts, and the
events take place In the heart of New Tork
society. More than that it Is Impossible
to tell you at the present moment, aa
English managers and playwrights are
doggardly reticent of all that concerns a
play until the time approaches for Its pro
duction which, in this case, will not be
much before six months hence.
The new ballet at the Empire, called "A
Day in Paris," lias served to introduce
Genee'g successor In the role ot premiere
danseuse. Although lacking In some degree
the engaging. personality and freshness of
the great dancer who Is now In the. United
States, Mdlle. Kyasht who is a Russian,
is a skillful dancer and is perhaps better
fitted to fill Genee's place, from the tech
nical stand point, than wae Topsy Siden
who Jumped Into tha gap. las year. "A
Day In Paris" gives the Empire manage
ment a chance to display some picturesque
costumes In the final scene. "The Artists'
Ball at the Moulin Rouge," to present some
gorgeous and striking electrical effects.
Aside from that, however, the ballet does
not rank with many that have made
the Leicester Square house famoua.
Diagonally across the square, the Alham
bra management have presented MUe.
Brltta Petersen, a 17-year-old dancer who
comes from Genee's own country Just as
the latter came to London eleven years ago
frnm the Roval opera house, Copenhagen.
She la remarkably youthful-looking, grace
ful and an exquisite dancer, Dut naiurany
lacks the energy, finish and confidence of
her older countrywoman.
i once heard it said thul Charles Froh
man's ambition in life was to reach that
point where he could be quite aure of hit
ting upon eight auccesses out of every ten
plays produced by him, but that up to the
present moment, his proportion of suc
cesses wss only six out of ten. When a
manager with the experience and discern
ment of Charles Frohman falls down four
tlmos in ten, It Is really extraordinary that
Miss Lena Ashwell should have gained for
the third time In succeHslon In her man
agement of the King-sway theater, not only
a success from the pen of a newly dis
covered playwright. In "The Swayboat,"
the playwright in question, Wilfred T.
Coleby, has drawn a feminine role after
Miss Ashwell's own heart and the whole
play is written with such cleverness and
dramatic skill as to warrant the assertion
that London is bound to hear more of Mr.
Paul Rubens, who is responsible for
'Miss Hook ot Hulland," has been taking
a vacation on the continent and returns to
London with the music for Seymour Hick's
musical version of "The Dictator." Rich
ard Harding Davis and Hicks have been
collaborating in the production and the
Kngllsh public who had a taste ot Its deli
cious absurdities in the straight comedy
in which Willie Collier appeared In Lon
don Is anxiously awaiting this production
by Its favorite light comedian. Hicks . is
admirable suited to the part of the man
who found himself a governor In spite ot
himself. An American critic recently said
that Hicks was Willie Collier, F.ddie Foy
and George Cohan all rolled into one, and
it would be hard to find a better descrlptlcn
of this strenuous comedian.
' Rubens may well claim to have estab
lished a record on h'.s continental holidsy.
Besides his work on "The Dictator," l.e
has almoat completed a musical piece for
Charles Frohman. a three-act comedy
called "Six Months After," which will be
produced in London In the very na? future,
a couple ot aong for Margaret Cooper, the
popular music hall singer, and a music hall
sketch for Seymour Hicks, who, with his
wife, Ellaline Terrlss, will make his ap
pearance at the Palaca theater. Lor, don, in
a couple of months in an Initial vaudeville
Clsfe tonus," arterhef ciperfeiice In Uie
English courts, whereby the Alhambra
management attempted to prevent her ap
pearance elsewhere In Ixindon before her
fulfilment of an old contract with them,
has made an enormous success with her
Imltstmns at the big Coliseum. The imi
tation which takes best of her many Is
that of TVette Gullbert, who, curiously
enough, finished an engagement at the
same house about a month ago. Her other
Imitations include Lily Elsie, who scored
so heavily as Sonla In "The Merry Widow,"
and Ethel Irving as "Lady Frederick."
London is glad to see her back again, for
she was a favorite In the old days before
she went to the t'nlted States In quest of
larger pay. Her present engagement Is net
ting her $1,250 a week, wh.cn. although It
does not constitute a record by any means
on this side of the water, .would probably
do so It maintained for any length ot time.
Messrs. Brooks ant? levering, the latter
of whom has been representing Charles
Frohman In a managerial capacity in Lon
don, are pushing arrangements for the pre
sentation of the real Yvette Guilbert In
straight comedy In London. There has
been so much talk, promise and postpone
ment of this Interesting event that It Is
something In the nature of a relief to hear
of definite arrangements. The play, which,
as I announced some time ago, would be
"The Star's Marriage," a French comedy
which was very successful at the Vaudeville
theater, Paris, will be known in Its Eng
lish version as "The Second Mrs. Mac
pherson," and will probablv be seen In
London some time in December, according
to' present plans.
JOHN AVA CARPENTER.
Coming; Errata. '
"The Man From Home" is an Indiana
novelette of equal parts heart Interest
and native wit, emphasised by a dash
of drums. It is a play home folk and
who says they are n -t the best folk?
should thoroughly and honestly enjoy.
Booth Tarkl.igton and Harry Leon WlUon
wrote the play, which Is to be presented
at the Boyd for four nights and Wednes
day matinee, starting tonight, and from
all accounts both authors and managers
are to be felicitated on the result. There
la no claim made that "The Man From
Home" is the great American play we
have been waiting for, and would prob
ably fail to recognize should we get it.
but It is merely stated that It is a well
staged, well-acted, well-told story of in
cident and character, which doubtless can
be, and Burely wll! be, viewed with pleas
ure and With profit. In Daniel Voorhees
Pike, a young Indlat-e lawyer, who Is
the leading personage In the new play,
the shrewd Yankee who decorated the
stage in the days of our. fathers and our
fathers' fathers, Is returned to life. He
Is Asa Trenchard and Solon Shingle ad
vanced a peg or two In manners and
clothes to suit the added years and the
newer dignity our country boasts. He
does not-chew tobacco and he has ceased
for the time being whittling sticks. But
he is the same keen-witted, crafty,
taciturn, nasal-toned, big-hearted. ln-the-nick-of-time
hero we have always known
him to be, and he Is likely to edge his
way into our hearts with every wiggle
of hla lank shoulders and every twist of
his quizzical face. . -;
Like its predecessor at the La Salle
theater. Chicago, "The Gill Question" and
"Tha Time, The Place and The Olrl."
"Honeymoon Trail," the latest of the
Adams, Hough tt Howard musical com
edit, rushes along with a dash and in
cessant action and an enthusiasm of
eagerness and apparent delight In the en
tertainment on the part of its principals
and chorus whloh ia contagious to Its au
dience. "Watch the Busy Bees" Is the
catch line of the piece, and in every city
where It appeared, aa well aa In Chi
cago itself, thousands of people are now
adding that expression to their stock of
epigram and slang. "You Can't Be a
Friend to Everybody," sung by the lead
ing comedian, is the chief song hit,
though the "Chicken Dance." by the in
exhaustible "Broilers," and a "Dance of
All Nations," by the same tireless little
girls, push it hard for popularity.
"Honeymoon Trail" will be at the Boyd
theater Friday and Saturday with Sat
Burton Holmes, the successor of John L.
Stoddard, and his finely Illustrated "Easy-Chalr-Journeys,"
have come to be consid
ered annual events In the amusement life
of the larger eastern cities. Starting sixteen
years ago, Mr. Holmes has devoted his
summers to foreign travel, returning each
winter with his mind and his cameras filled
to overflowing with vivid Impressions of
what he has seen and done In the remote
parts of the world. Keeping In step with
the advance In photography, he Is now able
to present to his audiences actual "scene
transferences" of foreign lands, not only
showing the grand srd picturesque, the
unusual and the quaint In realistic coloring,
but also by means of motion pictures taken
by himself and his associates, brings to his
patrons the scenes of activity in motion
ot foreign cities and countries, at the same
time bringing them face to face with the
rulers and great men of the nations. Grad
ually Mr. Holmes has been obliged to con
centrate his lecturing In such cities as
New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Chi
cago, and a second self, as It were, to
deliver his travelogues, word for word and
picture for picture In cities to which he
cannot go personally, tor lack of time.
His "Alter Ego" is Mr. Wright Kramer,
an actor of eastern reputation, who for sev
eral seasons has spent his summer vaca
tions In company with Mr. Holmes In for
eign lands. Mr. Kramer wac associated
with Mrs. Patrick Campbell In her English
tours, and made n enviable reputation
for himself In this country as the originator
of leading role in such successes as "The
Road to Yesterday," "The Stolen Story"
and "The Round-l'p." The subjects which
he Is to give this season are these given
by Mr. Holmes himself last year, namely,
"Berlin," "Vienna," "Paris," "London" and
"Fes, the Metropolis of tha Moors." By
means of magnificent colored lantern slides
and his motion pictures these cities with
their varied types, their differing architec
ture, the street life, methods of transpor
tation, ithelr places of amusement, military
pageants and religious ceremonials, will
appear upon the screen as though seen
through an open window. Emperor William
of Germany, Edward of England. Frans
Josef of Austria. President Fallierea of
France and Abdul el A ill. ot Morocco will
also appear in life-like motion. Nothing
could be a more satisfactory substitute for
personal travel than to attend a course of
Burton Holmes travelogues. Travelogues
vlll be given at the Boyd theater on
Wednesday evening, November 85, and De

last week have been even greater than
drawn by "The Devil" during the most
