Theater Talk from New York Cyril Maude's Unurjal Welcome His First Performance "Oh, I Say!" at Casino DeMilles FJUwer Po laire the Advertised Mostly He brew Two Medium-Weight Farces Best of the Lot. NON-MEDICAL HEALING. Br JAMES S. METCALFE. New York, Nov. J. Quite unusual were the circumstances attending the second coming- of Cyril Maude, the English actor, to New York. His friend and fellow-artist, Mr. J. E. Dodson. had pre pared a very elaborate greeting In the way of a banquet at the Lotos Club. To this had repaired some threescore no tables. Including Prime Minister Borden, of the Dominion of Canada. The pres ence of this dignitary was quite appro priate, as Mr. Maude had closed his Canadian engagement with a Saturday night performance in Ottawa, the Ca nadian capital, from which he was to hasten to the Sunday evening dinner In New York The guests of the occasion had gathered at the Lotos at 7 30. as per invitation, only to be Informed that Mr. Maude, hurrying by automobile from Ottawa to Prescott. had been ditched and missed the train to which he was to have been ferried across the St. Lawrence at Ogdensburg. They were also Informed that a special train had 'been ordered and that he was then somewhere be tween Albany and New York. The cock tall period was prolonged and the dinner served in leisurely fashion so that when Mr Maude finally arrived the coffee was being passed and he was Just In time for the speechifying. The cause of the delay and the presence of the Canadian Pre mier gave openings for reflections on the condition of the Canadian roads for automoblling and other sallies, including Mr Dodson's statement of the reason for his not getting In some cabaret fea tures to while away the time of waiting This was to the effect that most of those present knew that the only excuse for the cabaret show was that it took the rest out of restaurant and put the din into dinner Mr. Cyril Jlnudr'a Openlnc Cy ril Maude h first appearance in Amer ica since he has become famous in Eng land suffered from several handicaps. We hae become so accustomed to the more modern and more Intimately planned theaters that Wallack's. besides being now pretty far downtown, seems barnlike and unsulted for the finer kind of acting that calls for a closer touch between the stage and the audience. Nor Is the evening before election an auspicious time for a debut In addition his pla. Capt Marshall s "The Second In Command " was not a new one, hav ing served as a season's vehicle for Mr John Drew twelve years ago In spite of these drawbacks. Mr Maude was greeted by a distinctly fashionable audience, and not only won its favor, but made patent the charm which has given him his place In the affection of English theatergoers. Charm is the word, for not even his warmest admirers would claim for him greatness in the tense that we bestow the term on inter preters of the classic roles. Judging by t Is one performance there Is no question of his possesion of the ease, poise, fin ish, magnetism, and ability to tonvey humor which go to give pleasure to an audience In the portrayal of contem porary character The part of MaJ "Kit" Bingham in The Second in Command ' Is by no tt jns a noic one- but -it calls for the hearing of a gentleman, the ability of 1 e ronedian and the power of pathos. The first Is sufficiently rare on our stage to make grateful an encounter with it in the degree that Mr Maude possesses it his humor is quite sufficiently infec tious and his pithos is the more moving thro igh his tasteful restraint. He brings h s own companv, which is thoroughly FngUsh sometimes so much so as to ilmon Incomprehensible In Its use of I onaon dialect. Ills young daughter Mi Marg'ry Maude, has the leading w oman 3 role In the present piece, but It 1 not an exacting one and enables her t show the unaffected, girlish attractive ness w lii h is all It requires ftirl-niiil-Miinlr Show.

The deficiency Is sought to be atoned for by a superabund ance of the Jewish element represented In the cast by Max Rogers, Dorothy Jar- don. Hugh Cameron, Harry Cooper, Bobby North, Florence Moore, Wm. Montgomery and Flo May. The anti-Sem itism of these names does not contradict the original statement. The other per formers are George 'White, Virginia Evans and the members of .the chorus. This company ought to be able to do a fortnight In Jerusalem and a tour of one night stands through Palestine with con siderable success. The piece Is made up of tha usual quick-fire succession of brilliant scenes and costumes with the members of the company exploiting their various special ties In song, dance, and repartee, the last tending; more to coarseness than to wit. It has one effective scene, a winter car nival in the Alps, with the entire com pany indulging In such winter sports as skatlnr, tobogganing, ski-lng, and snow balling, in which the audience and those on the stage are alternately the targets. "The Pleasure Seekers" Is considerably below the Winter Garden standard, and Is evidently put In as a stop-gap until the return of the beloved Gaoy. Farce by STew Author. Mr. Albert Lee, a writer and editor well known In New York newspaper and liter ary circles, makes his bow as a play wright with a farce called "Miss Phoe nix." produced at the Harris to fill the vacuum caused by the early demise of "The Love Leash." There's much clever ness and originality In "Miss Phoenix." and it is both well produced and well acted by a company of young actors. None of them has yet achieved sufficient prominence to secure a personal follow ing, so the piece lacks that help toward success. In the field of farce Just now there must be drawing names In the cast and the piece itself must have something unusual to attract special notice, what the managers call "the punch." In times of less competition "Miss Phoenix" might easily have succeededpn Its claim as di verting and agreeable entertainment. Be sides that, its first performance took place on the night before election, when what little space left in the papers for dramatis news was given over mostly to Mr. Maude's first American appearance.

In fact, the dal lies gave It ample space and much praise. Although labeled comedy. It is also farce.

Finally the Immediate causa of the trouble, a single woman, charm ingly portrayed by Alexandra Carlisle, clears herself of suspicion, restores har mony, and reads the wives a lecture on the ease of keeping a husband by treat ing him as well after marriage as before.

Of course, the pantomlne may be carried very much further than this If the final chorus is prolonged and the drop of the curtain delayed. Far be It from any one to suggest that a New York theater would resort to such a device to attract patronage, but the character of some of the plays seen this season would go to Indicate that "an opportunity like this may possibly not be overlooked, par ticularly If " Oh.

I heartily congratulate you on this picture and prose history of the Isthmus, for the eyes of the world are now centered on this, our greatest national endeavor, and as everybody Interested wants comprehensive Information on this world-famous enterprise, you have surely given to stu dents and the reading public generally a new beacon light of history with a fascinating de scriptive thrill In every page. Your friend, UEXRY A. BERNUART. FROM MEMBER OF SENATE COMMITTEE ON INTEROCEANIC CANALS. August 15. 1913. My Dear Mr. Abbot I shall read "Panama and the Canal in Pictures and Prose" with a great deal of pleasure, but the pleasure will be largely enhanced by the fact that as a member of the Committee on Interoceanlc Canals I visited the Canal in October. 1911, and the half-tone cuts In the volume recall more vividly than anything else the scenes I visited. C S. FACE. FROM A NEW YORK CONGRESSSIAN. August 30, 1913. My Dear Mr. Abbot I desire to congratulate you most heartily on your latest book. "Panama and the Canal In Picture and Prose." A book of this kind is usually regarded as a picture book, and surely this one is most beautifully illustrated, but your book could be regarded as a picture book if one were to regard it from its letter press alone. I found it packed with information about the world's most wonderful canal, about tho people there and the tropical conditions, and about the ruins and the history that tell or Azteo and Toltec days, and the later amazing adventures of Balboa, Cortex, and their handful of Spanfsh companions, who mixed their prlvato business of buccaneering with an au thorized business of exploring. I think the style In which you have written Is most clear and flowing, and altogether this book Is by far the best presentment of this much-talked-ot subject that It has been my good fortune to find. Sincerely yours, HENRY GEORGE. JR. FnOM A LOUISIANA SENATOR. , August 25, 1913. Dear Mr. Abbot "Panama and the Canal in Picture and Prose" is one of the most thorough works' of Its kind that has come before me, and on it face it shows the result of untiring efforts on your part.
