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

and in many respects he was excellent,
Mr. Neill has a peculiar voice, which at
first appears unpleasant, but the au

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
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
A TEXAS BUDDHIST
"Will Do Missionary "Work in This
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.

Criss, formerly a member of the Twen

were together during that time and Wil
liams says they enjoyed the service,
which was without restraint of military
rule. Williams declares the Boer3 have
plenty of money and provisions stored to
last a long time, and he says he does
not believe the war will end for at least
a year. On leaving for home he says
he and other foreigners who had served
in the Boer army were paid for their
services in gold and given tree trans
portation to New York. Criss remained
in the Transvaal.
