Topeka had its introduction to "An American Citizen" last night, and the first impression was pleasing. To be sure Nat Goodwin was not here, but James Neill, a young western actor, ap peared in his part of Beresford Cruger, and in many respects he was excellent, Mr. Neill has a peculiar voice, which at first appears unpleasant, but the au dience oecomes accustomed to his deep tones after awhile, and last night his work won for him many rounds of ap plause. In fact, the demonstration at the end of the third act was quite as spontaneous and the reception Just as hearty as that accorded to Frank Dan iels or any other of the top-notchers. Again and again the curtain went up revealing the young actor in his most graceful bows, but he steadfastly refused to appear before the curtain and make a speech. Edith Chapman (her name is printed ii.dytne on the programme) is beau tifully natural in the part of Beatrice Carew. She is all the character de mands, dignified and yet loving, haughty and still warm hearted, of firm mind but of a forgiving disposition. The sup porting company is a strong one, from Frank MaeVicors, the senior partner, to Mercury, the office boy. "An American Citizen" is a good play and it was written by a woman, Made line Lucette Ryley. It was pure and wholesome and not a single person can witness the beautiful little comedy without taking with him from the the ater a delightful sense of satisfaction. What a contrast with "Zaza," whose very atmosphere reeks with vice. The scene of the play opens in a New Tork broker's office. Two of the partners find that the third has de faulted. He has used bonds held in trust for Georgia Chamn, an American girl, and her aunt. The firm is unable to make good the defalcation apd this drives Beresford Cruger, the junior partner, to accept the terms of an Eng lish uncle's will, which he had before rejected. The terms were that he should renounce his American citizenship, be come an Englishman and marry before he is thirty. Beatrice Carew, a daugh ter of the uncle who was disinherited because she had fallen in love with an American, arrives just in time to help the young broker out of his dilemma. She consents to marry him and in this way both she and Cruger receive the benefit of her father's fortune, but she stipulates that they shall not live to gether and shall not see each other after the marriage. She tells her cousin that her heart lies buried at the foot of the Alps with her American lover, who was killed by a fall. The arrangement works satisfactorily until Cruger, now Carew, since he has renounced his name, and his wife meet by chance in Italy, and when they both discover that they are in love with each other, though neither reveals the secret. About this time the American lover of Mrs. Carew, who is supposed to be dead, arrives on the scene. He turns out to be Brown, the defaulting partner, who had sent out the story of his own death after he heard that Miss Carew had been disin herited. Mr. Carew or Cruger fears to tell his wife of Brown's rascality for fear of creating sympathy for him; he understands this strange contradiction in woman's nature. Brown again lays siege to Mrs. Carew's heart and begins to devise means of getting rid of the husband, who is a husband in, name only. Before Brown's plans are realized news comes that the Carews have lost their inherited fortune by litigation, and Brown suddenly disappears. The final act is laid in London, where Beresford Carew is struggling hard to pay back the part of the inheritance he has used and also to supply his wife with an allowance. Mrs. Carew finally learns the true state of affairs, there is a happy acknowledgment of both hus band and wife, and the curtain goes down on the first love scene of Mr. Beresford Cruger and his wife. The piece is well staged and the cos tumes are elegant. The company will close its Topeka en gagement tonight in Nat Goodwin's play "Aristocracy." A TEXAS BUDDHIST "Will Do Missionary "Work in This Country. San Francisco, Nov. 28. The Buddhist nun. Sister Sanghamitta, has arrived in this citv from Honolulu and proposes to speak throughout the country in behalf of her chosen faith. She represents the Maha Bodhi society, which aims to pro mulgate the true teachings of Buddha. Sister Sanghamitta was formerly the Countess De Cannavaro, wife of the one time minister from Portugal to the Ha waiian islands. She was born in Texas and lived for years in California. In 1897 she entered the Buddhist sisterhood in New York, the event causing con siderable comment, as she thereby aban doned her husband and 13-year-old son. She now wears the robe of final reun ciation and will devote her life to Buddhist missionary work. Germans Board a Chinese Vessel. New York. Nov.28.

Winans, Deceased. London, Nov. 28. The lord chief jus tice's court is occupied at present with determining whether the late William L. Winans, formerly of Baltimore.Md., wa3 a domiciled resident' of Great Britain when he died in 1897. This question is being tested on account of a legacy of az,i)00 willed to his sister-in-law, Ellen Delarue on which the crown claims a legacy duty. As the attorney general smilingly remarked, the decision of course, will affect the whole of Mr. Win ans' millions, and counsel for the crown proceeded to recount the estates and shootings leased by Mr. Winans on which he lavished enormous sums of money, including 70,000 on the shooting leased from Lord Lovat, "constituting' contended the attorney general, "ample proor or his settlement in this country.' Walter Winans testified that his fath er always regarded Baltimore as his home. The case is proceeding. SOLDIER'S ROMANCE ENDED Wife of Member of Twentieth Kansas Secures a Divorce. Marie E.

"Aunt Hannah" .held a re ception on Possum Beach in the first act, whereall thechilluns," beaus and belles of Possum Beach gathered and frolicked, sang and danced. The galleries whooped and howled in concert with the darkey actors, making of it a home-like, parlor gathering. Willie Olivens possesses comedy tal ent of the monologue and horse-play style. Its greatest danger lies in being overworked. Rag time songs were plen tiful, to the delight of the gallery, and every nimble dance step was devoured with hungry eyes, only there should be more of it. Olivens and Miss Liverpool scored heavily in this accomplishment. It can be said for the colored entertain ers that they furnished laughs for their patrons in one way or another. The Nashville Students played a matinee this afternoon and repeat the performance tonight. "Will Be Married in London. London, Nov. 28.
