OLIVER TWIST IS
NDT GREAT SUCCESS
Impossible to Dramatize Sat
isfactorily Story by
Incongruities of Play Appar
ent to Those Who
From the first scene of the first act
to the last scene of the last act,
"Oliver Twist" is regular melodrama,
with shivery music, much low comedy
and a white bull pup interpolated.
The shivery music, 1 need not say,
ia mostly on the strings in the or
chestra; the low comedy is, T regret
to say, mostly from Xnt Goodwin —
that is to say. the lines are spoken by
him and the 'business" is performed by
him, though no doubt both lines and
business are the work of Comyns Carr,
who also has tried to make Charles
Dickens a theatric author. •
The thing , can not be done, and not
even the skill of Goodwin nor the
; weird lights, nor the stage settings at
J the Cort, nor the comedy, nor the bull
pup, nor anything else that is under
the heavens nor upon the earth will
make Oliver Twist, or any other
Dickens' novel, a stage performance.
TITTER AT rAeiirS DEATH
On the stage, the death of Nancy
Sikes becomes a matter of dull thuds
in the wings, and the ravings of Fa
gin in his cell so dose to the gro
tesque that, last night, when Goodwin
was warming to his work, the boun
daries of the dramatically true were
passed twice and the audience an- j
novmced its unbelief in titters.
The actor must have shuddered at
the titters. The intent was that the
audience should shudder at the actor.
Not that Goodwin was necessarily at
I fault; nor the audience either for that
; matter. The fact is that imagination's i
vision will see truer from the pages of
I Dickens' book than the physical eye
jwill believe when actors strut the stage
and scenery Mocks the sight in pal
pable, mechanical and needless inter
Staging "Oliver Twist" Is a gratui

apparently, cave producers and players

already made by Dickens, so obvious
and real that further visualization Ju

who paints a Illy, perfumes a rose or
sets Keats to music. •
Goodwin's voice in the role of Fag in

moments of "The -Havoc." His action la
excellent imitation of the craftiness
of the professor of the school of
thieves: his sudden transitions from
wolfish ferocity to a bland or obse-

create a fabulous monster repellent to
the senses through which the actor
I must needs appeal bluntly and with
! out the literary art of a master of sw h
J characterizations. The scene of the
J murder of Nancy Sikes is not without
i its effort at effect.
THUDS TOO NOISY
A green light floods Bill's brutal
I face. He handles his pistol. "Crafty.
I always crafty," says Fagin, taking the
pistol from Rikes' fist and replacing
it with a club. The orchestra plays
softly. Rill treads into the room
i where Nancy waits. The thuds that
: follow, speaking critically, are ■ bit

j sure the producer that the sound of a
! club on a head makes qtiite a dif
| forest noise than the sound of a club
against wood. The detail, which you
I may at first think trivial, is really
quite important as evidencing the im
possibility of carrying realism to real
ity in such episodes. The scene on
London bridge Is another Illustration
of thp impossibility of staging narra
tive literature, however dramatic that
literature in itself might be. Fagin
and his faithful fellow fiend crouch
in the shadows. Nancy and Rose and
Hγ. Brownlow discuss the fate of
Oliver on .London bridge. No soul
passes across that busy historic struc
ture; the stone arches move unfortu
nately and bright young men in the
audience whisper audibly to their
sweethearts, "London bridge is falling
There is the theater of the mind, a
playhouse of the imagination. In it
the reality of Milton's Satan, Dante's
hell, or Dlcken's Fagin is secured by
a kind of inspired credulity. But the
point to which the belief of playgoers
may be led is far this side of such a
visionary world. The tangibility of
f-'cenory, the, bulk of actors, the very
sound of their voices dispel illusion as
cockcrowing sends the ghost of Den
mark's king back to torment. That
point to which the occupant of a seat J
in a theater may be enticed in a play
house is determined by the tact of the
playwright, the skill of the player, and
the task of the producer in leaving
the imagination before offending it,
ATTEMPTS TOO MUCH

dertakings, of late has attempted too
Bill Sikes, as a matter of fact, was
more believable last night than the
Jew, partly, I think, because in his
attempts to make Kagin real, Goodwin
was guilty of the mistake of making
him colloquial and sometimes humor
ous. Sikes, played by Percy Standing,
was so grim and menacing that, were i
it not for the inevitable scene with
the club and Nancy dragging herself
(lying to his feet, he would have re
mained authentic in the memory.
Miss Marjorie Moreland will do well
to avoid looking at her pictures in the
papers. She is far too pretty to escape
the knowledge of it. As Nancy Sikes
her hair was shimmering, glossy and
beautiful, just from the care of a
maker of coiffures, I should say. And
her faco was clean, too, ever, after
Sikes had punched it a couple of times.
SOME OLD TIME JOY

I wonder whether vaudeville man

If one may judge of the scarcity of
available material for the vaudeville

TWO CLAIMS SELL
FOR GOOD PRICES
Outside Capital Invests in
New Mining District
ROCHESTER. Nev., April 13. —With
the purchase for $75,000 of the two
claims of the Crown Point extension on
Nenzel mountain by the Crown Reserve
Mining company of Cobalt. Ont., the
first outside capital to take up any
property in the new mining camp of
Rochester, Nev., has been brought into
the district. It is stated that $3,000 was
paid down, a payment of $22,000 is to
be made in 60 days and the balance be
fore January 1, 1914.
The claims owned by the Rochester
Extension Mining company, which have
become the property of the Canadian
mine owners, are on the southeasterly
slope of Nenzel mountain and end line
a portion of the Crown Point claims on
the south. The remainder end line the
Weaver claim No. 2 on the south.
Twelve men were immediately put
to work on the property trenching to
expose the continuation of the main
vein on the Elda Fina claims, upon
which the Roy Rldfce syndicate, which
is composed of Roy Ridge of Kansas
City and Salt Lake capitalists, is work
ing. The vein which Ridge exposed
carries ruby and horn silver and every
pound of rock taken from the shaft
which Ridge is sinking has been sacked
Excellent assays have been obtained
on the north end of the Extension
claims, and the trenching which has
been done has exposed the Ridge vein
for a distance of more than 250 feet.
Messrs. Organ and Farris of Rocheste r
were interested in the property and
secured an option on the remaining In
terests. This option was purchased by
the Crown Reserve people, and active
work in developing the property will
be done. The Crown Reserve is one of
the big mining companies of Cobalt,
