NEW YORK LETTER
By Norman. "
New York,,.March 18. Still they
come another crook play has been
added to tie long, long list of Tvhich
"Alias Jimmy Valentine" was the first
and "Within the Law" the best.

in which a most villainous butler,
possessor of the aforesaid mind, plots
the ruin of his employer, an 'amiable
young gentleman, by trade a district
attorney, who had several years pre
viously sent the butler's brother to

The butler's plot is complicated,
and involves the ensnarement of the
district attorney by a fascinating
young lady crook, who is' to marry
him and then ruin his public career
by disclosing what a. perfectly awful
persQn she really is.

the.closing act to an attack of soften
ing of the heart, which results in liis
own'reformation 'and happiness, &nd.
the abandonment of his ; wicked
Edmund ' Ijireese .plays he .Master
Mind creepily. Katherine'liaSalle is
captivating, as the siren, and Elliot
Baxter givje's a pleasing perdnnance
as the district attorney. " "
