Last Night
BeUacw-^-i'be a*.-Qa..4-.<er."
By ? A ??. B DORtSKT.
The ?Chinese version of "tb?
woman pays" that David Belasco
revealed at th? Belasco Theater last
night and whleh the program cred
its to Belaaco and George Scar
borough, inspires a doubt a? to
whether the adaptation of a Chin???
stage convention?a convention that
briaga an orator befar? th? curtain
"to lead your fancy onward"?may
not lie unfeeling Interpreted by ??
American o udir?? ce aa a, most un
necessary and antlcllmactlc appen
dage. It unquestionably save? Mr.
Belaaco the labor of presenting th?
happy* ending of hi? ?tory In dm?
? natie form, and it make? unneces
rary the audience remaining until
midnight, but one gravely ques
tions th? necessity of ending; la so
expeditious a manner a story that
Is otherwise a An? bit of stagecraft,
an admirable example of play act?
Ing and a piece of writing that
while not terrific In Its novelty, la
nevertheless a play.
"The Son-Daughter" Is basasi tb?
program tells us. on th* report ot a
government agent wbo obtained. In
formation from an alleged Chinese
smuggler to the effect that certain
members of a revolutionary China
party In New York war? actually
selling thetr daughter? to rats? Indi
vidual patrioti? assessments. From
this report ha? boten developed the
story of a Chinea? girl living with
her father In New Tork, wh?T lov??
a Chines? university student and who
Is about to be betrothed to him, only
to be sold to th? highest bidder as
a bride after har student-lover Is
revealed as the royal leader of the
Chinese revolution.
Both the girl and her lover face th?
dread and lonely futura as the prie?
of patriotism, ber marriage present
from her gamber-husband being a
present to the revolution. The gam
bler-husband? however, prove? to be
the chief of a band of imperial
Chinese ?pies who not only killed her
father as he bear? away her pur
chase price, but dangerously wound?
her lover. In revenge, she presents a
smiling face to her gambler-husband,
strangle? him with his own queue
?and brings to an end th? career of
the "Sea-Crab." aa the spy-chief
husband is termed. As the curtain
falls, the news Is borne to her that
her lover will not die and It might
aafey be asMume.1 that she too will
escape, with tha "Sea Crab" dead.
But Mr. Belasco has felt that the de
mand for the felicitous termination
requires more. He sends an orator
before the curtain to relate that the
girl did escape, that her lover lived
and that they, presumably, lived hap
pily thereafter, but In so doing, Mr.
Relasco courts anticlimax and lie falls
to send home his audience with a
satisfaction that ia more than ab
atract.
The play Is. however, a veritable
triumph of the Belascan genius for
stagecraft. It extricates its char
acters at the very moment of de
spair and It manages to elTe*(*tually
conceal the fact ?hat it will end
as anything other than a stara,
colorful tragedy as relentless as
that Griffith Chinese epic. "Broken
Blossoms." Mr. Belasco. however,
sought to point his story of the
Chinese woman's sacrifice in no
?ut h grimly radical way. He ?cernea
content to give a happy ending to
his tale, but it Is a happy ending
that does net spring spontaneously
and naturally from It? development.
It la a happy endin-r that one gulps
on, though the human heart de
mands solace, and it doesn't mind
gulping, sometime?.
From the. acting standpoint, It af
ford? brilliant role.? to Le?are l'Ire,
Edmund Lowe and Harry Mestayer.
Miss l'Irte Is. of course, the Chinese
girl. Her characterization is almost
faultless: It Is handled with the art
ful delicacy and subtle force one ha.?
come to expect from thi? newer Be
lasco protege, though her characteri
zation Is one that will not excite the
persons! reaction so strongly as did
her "Tiger Rose" part. Here she

heart of that oppressed creature, the

??miles and any glauca? aad st-rang

tad lee ?he was la "Tiger Rose."
Edmund Lowe, her leadla* ma?,
grows better wtth each succeeding ef
fort. We first ?aw him in that Hat
ton outrage. "Tbe Walk-OlTs " He
could hardly escape the Influence of
the vehicle and he. too. was terrible.
He Was vastly better in Channlng Pol

lacked schooling in restraint This
schooling be haa gained at the Bela son
school and he stands forth in "The
Son-Daughter" as a figure of force
that ia modulated but unmistakable.

probably haa the finest role of bis
young life. And he liacks tt with a
performance that Is .also probably bis
best. Mestayer's Chinese gambler Is
a guileful creature, apln-* American
habits, wearing a semi-American
costume; In fact a sort of a Chtca

action, he drops back in the schem

blood means nothing and whose pri

His villainy Is almost Ingenuous. It

And for two whole acta we must
give the authors credit for writing
stuff that thrills snd lives and
moves. Their lsyout Is great ?
Marie, the little French-Canuck,
swift as a flame in Impulse and act
a good lover and an even better
hater; Louie, her husband, the
blonde haired Vermont boy. loyal
and fine, but feeling only averaion
for the primal cruelsses and savage
Juatlce of tbe. wilds, and John St.
John, tba habitant, lithe as a tim
ber wolf and as keen on his prey ?
woman. Here is the material for a
Northland drama, where moral cour
age should meet the brldlelees pas
sions V the land where trails cesse.
But the authors didn't see it like
that, at all. Louis Is driven irresis
tibly Into tbe ?oiled tangle of human
emotions that fills tbe log shack?
burled Ih the driving whirls of the
blltEsard and when we see him
standing above the body of that
votary of amours. St. John. he.
somehow, seems more of a weak
ling that ever and the murder but
asn anti-climax His ideals have
failed him and the dark powers
of the frost sealed land leer as he
elaapa his wife to him. The writers
of the plsy seem to overlook the
fart that although they make
Marie say ber man must be
stronger than her. that the .final
.act of homicide marks her com
! plete domination of him. his com
jplete yielding to her Idea .of re
venge, her conception of a coward.
Besides. . this brssen. love-stesllng,
hot-eyed' voyageur of a John SL
John has edged his way Into our
, astonished liking and It aeema a
little abrupt to dispose of him with
a few inches of frosty steel In the
space of six tVeconil of furniture
j breaking
Pauline Lord. In the role of Marie, la
perfect. That is a large statement but
we stand by it. She la right in her
part every inch of the way and makes
the little snow-leopard of the Domin
ion something to remember. Her swift,
low. vivid accents colored with Gallic
vocalisation and quick tricks of move
ment leave nothing worth mentioning
to bo wished In characterization. Prac
tically as much may be said for
Macey Harlam as the Incorrigible
lady-annexer, St. John, playing the
great game.of love recklessly snd
finding It ?essimi??? unless a re**%?d
huaband Is In the offing.
In th? rol? of Whit?, tha man
with a past that It lan't tactful to
mention. Reginald Barlow giv?? a
clear out picture or oa? typ? of

William Mar-son as La Fontaine,
th? trap robber, and William Hor
ran, playing Pigeon^ a baU-bread
helper, tall contribute to aa admir
able ?can? of the backwooda.
A great deal must be aaid for th?
realism of the ?ettlng. Th? kero
sene lamps, cook stove, drying flan
nels^ blackened sauce pans, and
snow shoes, and finally the audible
trimmer of the bacon In th? frying
pan. all testify to a producer with
a fin? Italian hand for details.
Altogether. "Vt'sen a Haa'? a
