"The Earl of Pawtucket," the new com
edy by Augustus Thomas, which was the
biggest drawing csrd among New York
theatrical attractions all of last winter and
through most of the summer, will be given
its first presentation in Indianapolis this
evening. It will be on view at English's for
the first half of the week, with a matinee
Wednesday afternoon. Augustus Thomus
has written a number of good plays, some
of them serious and others of a humorous
turn, and this one is generally considered
his best effort, although his latest comedy,
"The Other Girl," which was recently
produced in New York, has met with much
"The Earl of Pawtucket" has to deal with
the adventures of an English nobleman, one
Lord Cardington, during his visit to the
American metropolis. The Englishman falls
In love with a besutiful American girl whom
he has seen several times in London, and it
Is on this charmer's account that he crosses
the Atlantic His adventures at the Waldorf-Astoria
while trying to win the girl
of his heart are very amusing, and. as they
lead to a series of laughable complications,
the audience Is kept in a merry frame of
mind throughout the play. Lawrence
D'Orsay, the English actor, played the role
of Lord Cardington In New York and made
a tremendous hit in the part. Frank Mon
roe, who has won a reputation as an ex
cellent comedian, will appear In the char
acter here, and his portrayal is credited with
being as good as that of his English con
temporary. Other well-known players in
the cast here will be Marie Pettcs. Mar
guerite Hay den, Florence Robinson, A.
Piper Thomas, Wedgewood Nowell, Wil
liam A Evans and Harry B. Hall. Manager
Kirke La Shelle has givn the comedy a
very handsome scenic equipment. As all of
the scenes are supposed to transpire in the
Waldorf-Astoria, there is every opportunity
for beautiful stage settings. The curtain
will rise this evening at 8:05.
The thrilling military exhibition of the
Hoosier Zouaves will be the chief feature of
the Grand's vaudeville bill this week an ex
hibition that is widely different from any
thing that has been seen on the local stage
this season. The zouaves are all Indianapo
lis boys, under the command of Captain
Louis Fox, and their tour of the larger
vaudeville theaters has been an uninter
rupted success ever since they scored their
first sensational triumph at Hamm rst In s
roof garden in New York last spring. Their
lightning drill and wall-scaling performance
will be well worth seeing and will surely
rouse the spectators at the Grand this week
to enthusiastic applause.
There will be several other arts of note
on the bill. The Taffry performing dogs
are said to be wonders, and as the Grand
has had few animal acts this nesSQSJ this
exhibition will doubtless prove very Inter
esting. Taffry's dogs are consider! re
markably Intelligent and their "show" con
tains many new and novel tricks and amus
ing antics. Arnim and Wagner, operatic
comedluns who were well liked when last
seen at the Grand, will present a new mu
sical skit, and other contributors to the
programme will be Foster and Foster, in a
comedy act: Rae and Brosche, in an original
sketch; Pat Touhey, a singer and dancer,
who also plays the Irish bagpipes; Conley
and Klein, "the Dutchman and the dancer."
and Keough and Bailey In a farcical act
called "A Vaudeville Surprise." The bio
scope will offer new animated pictures.
Estha Williams, who ha? made "At the
Old Cross Roads" one of the acceptable
plays at the Tark in other engagements,
comes to that theater again this afternoon.
She continues to play the part of Parepa,
the octoroon, in this play of plantation
life In the South. There are several others
in the company who have been in the cast
of the play since its beginning. As It re
veals the tragic and softer sides of social
life in the old South the piay tells a story
of heart interest and is full of episodes of
dramatic strength. Its ra!ism is blended
with comedy of unconventional character.
The stage environment, costumes and prop
erties are said to be in keeping with the
atmosphere of the play and las time which
It marks. James M. Brophy plays the role
of a gambler who piles his calling on the
steamers of the Mississippi. He is a ro
mantic actor of vl)( experience, and the
plot of "At the Old Cross Koads" depends
largely upon him for development. This
will be the Park's bill for three days.
A quaint Shakspearian performance will
take place in New York this evening at the
Knickerbocker Theater, when Ben Greet s
London players (the same who api I in
this city last winter in the interesting old
morality play of "Everyman " will present
"Twelfth Night" as it was played in
Shakspeare s time. The audience, instead of
being greeted, upon entering the theater,
with the familiar asbestos curtain, will ob
serve no curtain at all but the bare walls
of an "Elizabethan tlnater." Trump. -t
blasts in front of the playhouse, in accord
ance with the custom at the old Swan Thea
ter in London, will indicate the beginning
of the performance. The costumes will be
entirely Elizabethan instead of tin- gaudier
ones common in modern Shakspearian pro
duction The entire text of "Twelfth
Night" will be rendered, instead of making
certain eliminations which the shortcomings
of some stars have necessitated. Th pro
grammes will be printed in the quaint Eng
lish OS the time of the Bard of Avon and
will be In great contrast to modern bills of
the play. In place of the usual orchestra a
choir of musicians will be seated on the
stage dressed In Elizabethan costumes and
rendering English music of an early period.
Edith Wvnne Matthison th vounf Knir.
I llsh actress who is well remembered in In
dianapolis for her supero portrayal of the
role of Everyman, will appear as Viola.
Blase New York has been wishing for a
theatrical novelty, and here it is at last.
Maxine Elliott's "little sister Gertrude,"
as they used to apply the name to her
when she was In the company of the
Goodwins, has become a "big girl now." to
quote the words of a popular song. Indeed,
she has been a big girl for quite a while
in England, where she married Forbes
Robertson, the eminent actor, and shared
the honors with him in his last productions.
Now she is back home in America again
with her distinguished husband and artistic
partner, and Indianapolis will have a chance
the later part of the week to see how she
has "grown up." She was always noted
for her talents, her good looks and winsome
ways, and the critics used to say that she
had tho making of a great actress in her.
When she left America in the company
of Nat Goodwin and Maxine Elliott she was
a young girl playing ingenue parts. Lon
don theater-goers were delighted with her
and she became quite a fad in the British
metropolis. When her first real chance came
for important work she did not let it slip
by, but demonstrated that she was equal
to better roles than the kind she had been
playing. She will appear as Maisle in "The
Bight That Failed" and as Ophelia in
"Hamlet" during the local engagement. The
Kipling play will be given Friday evening
and at tho Saturday matinee, and the
Shakspearian drama Saturday night. The
seats for tho three performances will be
placed on sale at English's to-morrow.
Contracts have been signed by Harrison
Gray Fiske and C. M. S. McLellan ("Hugh
Morton"), by the terms of which Mr. Fiske
secures the American rights to and will
In due time produce a new and remarkable
drama by Mr. MeLellan. Those who have
knowledge of the play for the possession of
which there Is said to have been keen
competition, but in the placing of which
Mr. McLellan has been dominated by the
purpose to have its chief character in the
hands of an actress peculiarly fitted for It
believe that it will afford Mrs. Fiske
the greatest opportunity she has yet found
in the modern drama. Mr. McLellan's play
is described as powerful in movement,
strong and varied in characters, pic
turesque in scenes and unique in subject
and general treatment. While it is said
to possess in a remarkable degree those
attributes of drama that appeal to all
tastes in the theater swift action, striking
situations, powerful climaxes and strongly
opposed motives and figures It still is said
to possess psychological and sociological
values exceptional in themselves, and the
more extraordinary in this drama because
the play itself moves on the most inter
esting and exciting lines. Mr. McLellan,
who has resided abroad for several years.
Is at present in New York.
The Fay Foster Uurlesque company will
hold the boards at the Empire all of this
week, opening with the regular matinee
this afternoon. The show is given in the
form of a three-act musical travesty in
stead of the usual burlesques, and the
specialties are introduced naturally in the
course of the entertainment. Besides sev
eral singers and dancers who are promi
nent in the burlesque world the following
specialty performers will take part: Terry
and Elmer, a hih-class farcical team, last
Seen in Indianapolis at the Grand; Hough
ton and the two Moshers, In a sensational
bicycle exhibition; Cunningham and Grant,
"the brutal brothers." who have long been
familiar figures on the burlesque stage in
their funny knockabout act; the Cosmopoli
tan Trio, singers and dancers, and Law
rence Crane, the expert card manipulator,
whose specialty is one of the very best of
There has been considerable talk in New
York about the betterment of vaudeville.
And now comes word that "Sally In Our
Alley" will be produced on the vaudeville
stage by Dan McAvoy, which must mean
that the vaudeville standard is being low
ered Instead of raised. The only comfort
ing feature in this announcement is that
"Sally'' will be produced in a condensed
form and that the piece wih run only about
twenty minutes. If it's the same "Sally"
that was seen in this city last season, it
cannot possibly be shortened too much.
The tour of the Rogers brothers has been
extended a month. When they return
eastward from the Pacific coast In the
spring they will be seen in Indianapolis for
two performances of "The Rogers Broth
ers in London," and will then go to St.
Louis for a solid month's engagement,
counting on the world's fair crowds for big
"Kong He Faat Toy" was the pleasant
greeting that appeared over its counterpart
In Chinese characters and the pictures of
Mr. and Mrs. Moy Kee on the menu card
which those Celestials laid before guests
at their East Washington-street restaurant
As "Kong He Faat Toy" means in Eng
lish "Happy New Year," it was an emi
nently fitting greeting, for the event was
Mr. and Mrs. Moy's annual dinner on the
occasion of their celebration of the Chi
nese New Year, to over fifty prominent
business and professional men of Indianap
olis with their wives.
Last year Moy Kee entertained about
one hundred and fifty persons at his New
Year's feast, and as this number taxes the
capacity of the little Chinese restaurant too
severely, it was decided that this year
the guests would be entertained in two
sections, a portion of them last evening and
the rest this evening. Tables were spread
in both the front and rear rooms of the
restaurant, decorated with carnations and
s.-t with dainty cliinaware. Seated at there
tables the guest- were served with an elab
orate dinner in ten courses, made up of the
greatest delicacies afforded by the Chinese
Although the names of the foods were not
intelligible without the translations to those
Who ate them, they were appreciated none
The menu was "as follows:
Manderine LI Chee
Canton ginger Chinese preserved eggs
Yen war (bird's nest soup)
Hakle Sakie wine
Yu chie (shark fins)

Fark ehuni gal (boiled chicken)
Chicken chop suey
Shup gun don (scrambled minced eggs)
Tea and rice
With the serving of the dinner the even
ing's programme was but half over, for
the guests were to be treated to an extrav
agant display of fireworks. According to
Mr. Moy's statement to the Journal last
evening, exactly 145,000 stringed firecrackers
were fired, besides numberless Roman can
dles and other noise and vari-colored light
makers. This display was made in front of
the restaurant, and drew to the spot a
crowd of several hundred people that
threatened for a time to block traffic on the
This evening will see repetition of the
menu and of the display of fireworks.
There will be even more guests then than
there were last evening, and the finale of
noise will be us great as Sunday's, with no
fear of police interference to deter the cele
brants, for Moy Kee has in his possession
the special permit of the Board of Public
Safety and the mayor giving Indianapolis
C hinamen permission to celebrate their New
car In such manner as Is their custom.
Feb. 15 Is the Chinese New Year, but its
celebration extends over a period of from
three days to two months, according to the

A Leap Year License.
Several days ago a woman walked into
the marriage-license office in City Hal!.
She was young and rather pretty, of the
ruddy-faced German type. As she ad
vanced toward the desk a clerk rose from
"What would you like to have?" he asked
with a smile.
"Vy, a marrich license," she replied,
blushing and looking down demurely.
She gave her name and that of her in
tended husband, which were entered on
"How old are you?" asked the clerk.
"How old is the man?'
"Have you brought the necessary affi
davits of consent from your parents and
"Yes, cerdainly," she replied, producing
Everything being satisfactory the license
was made out and given to her. As she
signed her name'on the docket the clerk
'It's usual for the man to take out the
license. You should have made your future
husband do It."
"Ach, no!" she answered quickly. "I
diln't vant him to do it. You see," she
wXit on in a sudden burst of confidence,
"he really didn't ask me; I I asked him!"
And she blushed again. "You know we've
alius liked each other, an' he's kind of
bashful-like and then their house aln'd so
big as ourn, an' I guess he was klsder
afeerd of pop! So I chust up an asked him
myself. Oh my! H- said yes rldt avay an'

of her action, noticing the surprised look
on the clerk's face, "dls is leap year, ain'd
A Salvagje Corps.
New York Press.
A matron who gave one of the best dances
of the week put lato effect an idea that
may find favor with other hostesses. There
were many guests from out of town and
many from different sets. In order that ev
erybody might meet everybody else, this
w.iman appointed six men as ushers to
take care of the introductions. She called
her ushers "knights" and they wore sashes
of red ribbon on which her crest was
worked In gold thread. These Insignia dis
tinguished them from the other men and
they were permitted to speak to strange
girls and strange men and see that the wall
flowers were ared for. One girl called the
