THE WASHINGTON . TIMES, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 1913.
TO POLI'S THEATER
BY GREAT THRONG
Old Favorites and New Ones
Given Ovation in "The Man
New Leading Woman
(Something happened last nlsht in
Washington t,hat It teemed as though
everybody In the city had been "wait
ing for since last October. When the
motorman -who brings you downtown
at 7 o'clock In the morning, dlscus&ei
the subject with the conductor; when
fwo women blockade F street and dis
cuss the bubject beneath dripping w
brelias; when three 'shopgirls are so
Interested in the subject that they fall
to see the customer who waits patient
ly In front of the counter for them;
when men, -with rain dripping from
fheir derbies, stop each other and have
x word about it; when quite a little
army of youths stand In line for from
i half to threi'-quarters of an hour,
Jn order to buy seats for their beet
filrls. It Is certain that something quite
out of the ordinary Is happening. Yoa
Snow and I know what It was. It was
all because the Poll Players came home
last evening. j
'Washington warmed right lip to the
stock company Idea, when It was tried
out In Washington several years ago. In
a manner which made managers realize
that the right sort of a proposition
would pay big money. Each year the
stock companies have "come back.
Sometimes some of them have remained
but & short time, while others have
opened earlier and earlier each year,
hut the record of being in Washington
almost permanently has been awarded
Mr. Poll, whose company of players was
greeted last evening with a measure of
enthusiasm almost uncquaied In the
atrical annals of the Capital City.
Old Favorites Return.
Some cf the old favorites are absent
(and sadly missed some of them are,
too), but In the main, the principals re
main about the same. There Is A. H.
Van Buren, the handsome leading man,
one ot the most popular, I suspect, who
has ever played a stock engagement In
Washington. There Is Mark Kent,
whose value as a character actor has
seldom been approached. There is
Graham Velsey, the Juvenile, who
Jumped Into instant popularity last
summer, and who returns with new
laurels to his credit, and there is Miss
Gertrude Bondhlll. the charming Inge
nue, whose following was large and en
thusiastic. Then there are the new members
of the company, who made their bow
to Poll patrons last evening. First
comes Miss Maude Gilbert, who is
charming and beautiful, who. I pre
dict, will gain great vogue during
her altogether too short stock en
gagement as leading woman. Miss
Gilbert is dark and has a piquante
and expressive face, and a graceful
flgure. which combine to Tiiake her
an Ideal leading woman. Playing as
second woman Is Miss Lotta Llnthl
cum, who is also very charming and
handsome, though rather different In
utile from Miss Gilbert. Having:
studied abroad, and HVrd much of her
girlhood in France, she speaks the
French language with a perfc-t Par
isian accent, and has all the graces
that come with long residence in the
Miss Linthicum might almost be
called a Washlngtonlan, as she Is
closely related to the Shepherd and
Llnthlcum families, old residents 'of
Georgetown, and visited the Capital
City frequently in her childhood days.
Though both young women are strang
ers to stock audiences, their reception
last night was thoroughly cordial, and
enthusiastic Helen Tracy Is an Ideal
character woman, possessing all the re
quirement of a. grande dame. Of the
male contingent, who .are also strang
ers to Washington, but who made a
deep Impression on last night's audi
ence, there are Robert Mlddlemas. who
last night played the part of the Grand
Duke Vasill VasHlvich. In "The Man
From Home;" Frank Shannon, who con
tributed excellent work in the role of
the Earl of Hawcastle; H. Dudley Haw
ley, In the part of the young English
man. Hon. Almerlc St. Aubyn. Cecl
Bowser, as Riviere; Thomas Williams,
as Mariano; Edward Vernon as
MIchele. and Frank Amory and Fred
erick Wilson-, who were seen In minor

sented In the Columbia Theater.
Ovation to Van Buren.
But memory takes me back to that
time when Wflllam Hodge was seen In
the role of Daniel Voorhees Pike, the
man from Kokomo, Indiana, and the
delineation given last night by Mr.
,Van Buren. even taking Into considera
tion the fact that he must have been
somewhat nervous, on account of the
ovation he received upon his entrance.

compared favorably with the work of
the man, for whom the play was writ
ten. The house last night wore a festal
air quite In keeping with the event. As
long ago as the middle of last week
every seat In Poll's Theater had been
sold, and standing room was at a pre
mium; Manager Thatcher, with an eye
always to the artistic effect, had caused
the entrance to be decorated in an at
tractive manner. Foliage, colored lights,
and a profusion of Florida moss was
used to form a forest-like scene, which
was decided!' enchanting. Inside ot
the theater each of the boxes had been
draptd with the American flag, and
baskets of flowers adorned the arches.
The entire balconv and gallery were
outlined with trailing vines, and the
lights were shaded with greenery.
If last night's reception to tho Poll
Players Is to bs taken as a criterion. I
predict that this season will be even
more successful than last, and as every
body In Washington knows, last sum
mer's business was a record maker.
