A Secret Dispatch.
"The Secret J)isnatch," which play?
n Sunday engagement at the Illinois,
is described as a drama of life durinjr
the civil war. The action takes place
during the period of 1SC1-Cj, and
shows the domestic as well as the
military side of war times. The
story is based on the murder of an
old German, apparently committed
by his own grandson. The joung
man is innocent, but the apparent
evidence is so strong against him
he joins the army in disguise to
avoid arrest, and it takes four acts
to evolve the circumstances that free
him anil fix the guilt on the real cul
prit. The scei f the first act. is in
the north. The m-coii.I shows a union
out post during the war, and the last
two are in the north again. Strong
ilramalie interest and good comedy
incidents mark all four acts and a
capable company gives a good presen
tation of the play.
William II. Crane, who probably
stands next to Mr. Jefferson in the
affections of the theatre-going pub
lie, is to begin a fortnight's engage
ment at Power's theatre, in Chicago.
(Jet. 20. The play he is to present is
the dramatization of Kdward Noyet.
Wcsteot t's celebrated novel, "David
Hiiriim." A year ago Mr. Crane pre
sented the play in Chicago, and
throughout the six weeks it was given
there it won an extraordinary amount
of success. During many years this
estimable actor has been before the
public he has known numerous suc
cesses, but none which won or was ac
corded anything like the volume of
approbation that has been given
"David Ilarnm.". For every effect
there must be, perforce. i cause. The
cause of "David llarum's" success is
not difficult to determine. Of all the
dramatisations made of popular honks
of recent years, it is by long odds
the most clever, most satisfying and,
a time shows, the most enduring
Not a good line or an amusing piece
of description contained in the book
is lost in the dramal ixation. and Mr.
Crane makes the old fellow who held
that "a man might be stru-ghter'n .
string in mo.,t things and yet never
tell the hull truth about a boss," it
living, breathing reality. Some of the
Clitics have held that Mr. Crane's por
trayal of Ilarnm is one of the be t
things seen on the stage in years. It
has rugged humor, it has brightness,
it is full of light and shade, there is
no exaggeration and it has sentimen
tal touches here and there that never
fail to hit. the mark aimed at. In
making a play out of Ihe book it
was divided into three acts, and al!
Ihe scenes laid in llomerville, N. Y.
The feature of the opening act is thi
horse trade between Ilarnm and Dea
con Pel-kill's: in the second the.rc are
the incidents of the counterfeit bill-,
the tussle with Hill Montaig. an. I, fin
ally, the appearance of the ilcacor
behind the balky horse, in the rain
storm. The scene of the closing act
is the parlor of Aunt Polly's home,
and in it Ilarnm tells the story of hi
visit to the circus as a boy. and of the
whipping which folowed. The play
concludes with the Christinas dinner
and the opening of the celebrated
bottle of champagne. The play will
have' an exceptionally strong cast and
the production will be the same as
that seen on the occasion of Mr.
Crane's previous engagement in Chi
Way or the World Comlne.
