DnosTns. Sort 1. Tlmt curious woman who
calls herself Mrs. Hobert Hay Hamilton, but
whom tho court decided to bo .Mrs. Joshua
Mfttin, lias once more shufllod the cards and
has niado n new deal in the ontortalnlng It
uncertain came of ndYontute which sho began
bo many yenrs ago.
In this smnll Now Jprsey town she mado her
di!but as nn settees lo-nlght In a piny embrac
ing and centring abnut tho Incidents of her
life with Robert Itny Ilnmllton. Months ago It
was known that somo ono bnd written n play
for hor which wns to le rallad "Tho Hnb
bortons," and It was. nlso known that
llnbbertnn was selected because It would sug
gest to tho public tho tact that the play would
don! with the ltobort Itny Ilnmllton opl-sodo.
When the fnmous suit wns troucbt to such nn
ignominious cloe. and when Mrs. Mnnn found
horpelt known by hor truo pnmo, nnd fully ex
posed In the fraudulent child affair, eho took
her-olf out of eight.
she has been spending the months of retire
ment In restoring hor shattered neivos nnd In
developing that histrionic tulont which every
adventures Is confident she pnsscssos. That
cho .studied assiduously and with somo Intel
ligence waB shown by her perlormauco to
night. ' Chniley Gardiner, who ba9 managed several
sensational entorprl-os. wns selected ns mana
ger lor this. Duiiug tho last tno monthH re
hearsals have been frociuent, nlmost ns fre
quent as tho changos In the actor-. Anions
the first mores Unrdlncr ninde wan to chnnKO
the title of the play. Ho decided that "The
Habbertons" wns not as attrnctive as It mleht
be. aud substituted "Alia Ml-tako." rely tut
upon tho publishing of tho name, Mrs. ltobort
Hay Hnuillton. in bin black type just under
the title, to put people in mind of what wa3
"all a mistake."
Tlioro has not been any creat amount ot
money back of the enterprise, and when Mrs.
Hamilton's gowns wero pnld for there wns
little Isltto pay cut in eettlns a BHlaxy of play
ers nbuut here, tio for tho past wcok various
sma I Now Jersey towns havo beon! billed
meaeroly. but conspicuously, with posters
leading like this:
la h.r beautiful, realistic, ami pretty romantlo drama,
TUUl'OLirAN 1'LAYbllS.
Boonton was decided upon as tho place for
the ilribut. Tho why of It Is best explained by
an interview which tok place la the lioonton
Opera House to-day. 'ihe Uoonton Uperu
House, like Boonton itself, is small and
bard to set lulo. Ttie oinau wim keeps
thi millinery shop under It acts as
leosee. permanent stage munaeor, ana jau
iiross. The ball with the cullory will seut -lUU
persons If the paeklnp is dono skilfully. Tho
staee is ery bleu from the floor, aud must
comically small for a terrible truKody with
load hissing "aslUHS."
When the reporter for The Sun reached hero
be at once went to the Opera Uouso and ad
dressed himself to ono of the company, a fat
man. muoti soiled, and boarinc mark of per
sonal contact with dusty things. When ho
heard that a New York newspaper had learned
of the intended debut, he foil to trembling,
with a curious mixture of reality aud btaya
"Well, well." said he, "this Is awful. Don't
let her know. For Goij'.s sake, don't. We
sneaked away from New lork yoMerdoy morn
Inc and came down here because we thought
no one would And us out. Why. the woman
hasn't had any experience, we aro doingtheo
ilttlo towns to giveherachanoo to work off
stage fright."
'then he began to apologize and deprecate
the place, ttie people, and the opera houso. Al
though the company had then been in town
but thirty bours.every one had learned nil about
their uffalrs. The ownor nnd jaultross told
how tbey hadn't monoy enough to payfortna
programmes, and how she had to get them out
and wait until after the performance for her
money. Another man baa hoard how they had
f:ot tholr printing done in other towns ahead
n thesamn way. Hut the stout, good-naturoa
Actor explained all ttiK
" You don't ceo muoh paper out, eh ?"
No, not fo very much. But the conntry
papers are booming her. We can rely on
Mrs. Mann needs booming, for somehow
or other the smalt New Jersey towns do not
seem to know much about her. Tho man in
the hotel olnee said:
" W bo is this here star I see posted around ?
I never hcerd of no Hamilton actress before"
Mrh. Mnnn came into tho hotel parlor with a
manner that liad a good deal of roekloss do
flaiii'e In It. Her form, which wns clad In a
, close lilting gray cowu. was full and
round aud very nttruetho. Her fnco,
too, was attractive, but In another
way. Her OS'fc brown hair was combed
back in a bocomlug wave from n high
forehead. Her sharp noso, her ttilti. strnlght
lips, and tho closenoss of her eys give her Inr
from homely face a certain luiraness, ns though
he had Used through a good deal that wai
desperate. A scar between her eyes height
ened this unpleasant, yet nttnictlve. look.
The interview Is not worth lepeating. as
sh would not talk of nor own affairs excoptto
say that her real debut would be mado in l'ltts
ton, l'A, Hept. 4. and that she would open at
tho Chestnut btroet Theatre, I'hilndelphla,
Bent, 'A), to play a week, hho keeps to her room
at the hotel aud has hor meals sout up, tihe
also has a maid.
Aliout '250 people camo nut to see her In the
evening, and It may bo said In tho beginning
that Hoonton wns well lontont with the per
formance. It was fully up to the ltoonton
averaue. To one familiar with the ruin of
ltobort Ilav Hamilton and tho way in which
his name was dragged through tho nilro, the
play wan dmiilv nn additional horror.
Tho plot ot tho may follows the Incldonts
known t tho public hut It follows them in a
distorted way. hv.i Mnnn is made out lo bo n
heroinn and a martyr. Itobmt itny Hamilton

without uny roal knowlodgoor the world. Both
. are vlctlnih of thewllosoi n character who Is
KUnposed to b Josii Mann nnd of anotlior
