COLEMAN THE VICTIM OF ACCIDENT. Popular High School Cadet Breaks Through the Ice at the Tidal Basin. A fatal skating accident eerarni yes terday afternoon In ths tidal basin near tbe Long bridge. Tha victim was Leroy A. Coleman, who lived at 604 Spruce street northwest. He was seventeen years old. The boy lost his life near the Inlet of the basin: where the loe was not thick enough to bold ble weight, and apparently re sulted from an effort on his part to reach the sea wall. It was about 8:40 o'clock when the accident'happened, and the police report that the body was recovered at B:20 o'clock. Policeman Peyton had warned the boy of the danger of skating near the thin loe, and the latter kept a safe distance from the danger points until be bad almost crossed the basin. Elliott Mason, living at #06 Spruce street, a companion of Coleman, was with him at the time the fatal accident occurred. There were but few persons on the Ice when Coleman and his companion reached there. They went first to the fish ponds, where they found the Ice was too rough for good skating, and went from there to the basin. C. B. Harrington of 622 6th street and Truman Krauskopf of 62* E street were skating on the loe together when Coleman and Mason, both high school boys, oame along. Harrington and his companion were skylarking when the boys appeared, and no attention was paid to the late comers until Coleman went through the thin ice. His weight broke tbe ice for quite a dis tance around him nnd he started to swim toward the thick ice. He lost his hat and turned to ge^ it when Harrington called: "Let the hat go." Harrington and Mason removed their ccats and did their best to get the gar ments to him In order that they might be able to rescue him. Finding their efforts futile they hurried to a tugboat about fifty feet away to get a boat. There was a small craft there, but it was fast In the Ice, and all the young men could get was a board. Returning to the break in the Ice they started to use the board, and It was about this time that Coleman uttered a groan and went down. Aid Summoned. A pole with a nail driven in one end was procured, and with this Harrington was able to prevent the sinking of the body. While this was being done messages were sent in every direction summoning assist ance. The police of the third and fourth precincts, the harbormaster's crew and Dr. Perkins of the Emergency Hospital staff responded. It had been impossible for Ma son and Harrington to go on the thin Ice to savl Coleman. Policemen Peyton and Creagh co-operated with Sergeant Doyle and several volunteers. It was only after considerable difficulty that the rescuing party, by aid of a small boat, recovered the body. Life had then been extinct for so long that nothing could be done, and the body was removed to the morgue. Coroner Nev itt viewed the body, heard statements of the affair and gave a certificate of acci dental death. I The coroner said he was satisfied that Coleman was frozen to death and that he was not drowned. Witnesses, he said, as sured him that every effort was made to save the boy's life, and those who made the effort did succeed in keeping his body near the surface and his head out of the water until life was extinct. Popular High School Student. The parents of the body and his many frlend3 were shocked terribly upon receipt of the news of his death. They are deeply grateful to those who rendered aid. Many sympathetic messages from friends have been received by the parents. Young Cole man was a pupil In the Business High School and was a member of the cadet company.

Reports of Miss Elliott's emrhatic suoceM In this new comedy have reached Washington at Intervals during the season. She is credit ed with having soored a unique theatrical run In New York?having appeared at four different first-class New York theaters. In succession, during the course of four months. Her New York engagement, origi nally limited to only seven weeks, was three times extended when failure# at other theaters made it possible for her successful offering to be transferred. The play tells a story of New York life of today, in which a beautiful girl insists upon having her own way in her own love affair. Manager Charles B. Dillingham has surrounded Miss Elliott with a strong supporting company, which includes William Courtlelgh. Charles Cherry. R. C. Herz. Nellie Thorne, Georgle Lawrence.

Mr. Thomas wrote the part around the pronounced personality of Lawrance D'Orsay, an English actor, whose action and speech seemed to the playwright to be exactly in keeping with the exagger ated Amerioan idea of a typical English man of the upper class. Mr. Thomas' Judg ment was so accurate that when he ap peared in New York in the part of which he was In reality the model Mr. D'Orsay made one of those memorable hits that happen but a few times In a century, and awoke the next morning to literally find himself fa mous.

Sto vons have given valuable assistance. The plot, very briefly sketched, concerns the ad ventures of a touring theatrical company, who have become stranded in Greece, but the manager, Dionysius Fly, has come Into possession of a wishing cap. and he utilizes power thus granted him to extricate his fel low-players from their predicament. Musical and other refined specialties abound in the piece, and the cast Includes Stella Mayhew, the clever comedienne. Chase's Theater.

Wood, Herbert Lloyd, the Misses Carmen and the Ameri can vltagraph motion pictures of a subject entitled "The Poachers." The Davis-Ma cauley company offers what is said to be a genuine departure in polite vaudeville, in that it will present the spectacular one-act comedy drama, entitled "Pals," in which there is a thrilling encounter upon a stair way, promised to be as sensational as the memorable duel in "A Gentleman of France." Raymond and Caverly are the German comedians who recently were starred in all of the Rogers brothers suc cesses. George H. Wood is the monologist styled "The Somewhat Different Comedian." Herbert Lloyd in "The King's Jester" will be assisted by Lillian Lilyan. The Misses Carmen are called America's champion lady banjoists. The advance sale of re served seats is progressing. "The White Slave." At the Academy, beginning next Monday, with matinees on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, Bartley Campbell's popular southern play, "The White Slave," will be the attraction. The story is woven around the trials and misfortunes of Lisa, who is made to suffer for a mother's sin. The se cret of her birth is developed early in the play, but her love story is so tender, so nat ural and so prettily told that the audience laugs with her in her happiness, sympa thizes with her in her trouble and rejoices in her final vindication. No drama written in many years calls for more elaborate stage Bettings than Mr. Campbell's picturesque play. There is the library of Judge Harden, in the blue grass region of Kentucky, a plantation rich in tropical splendor, with a distant view of the mighty Mississippi swiftly running its course to the sea, with a row of darkey cabins near its bank. In this scene a chorus of midnight serenaders sing the pretty melodies of the past. A new feature of the production will be the exterior of the fa mous floating palace, Belle Creole. Illumi nated.

One of the latest of the so-called "popu lar" class of melodramas is "In the Siiadow of the Gallows," which will be submitted to patrons of the Empire next week. This play Is described as an intensely interesting revelation of love, intrigue and hate, clev erly Interwoven with an enjoyable vein of comedy. A strong moral is conveyed dur ing the action of the play, and, as the title suggests, there are plenty of sensations to keep up unflagging interest. Lillian Morti mer and a company of guaranteed strength wiil be seen in the production. Fay Foster Co.
