musical plays who attend the produc
tion ol "Cloverdell" at the Hyperion
theater next Wednesday evening will
pass their judgment upon a musical
Batlre after the style of Gilbert and Sul
livan in "Cloverdell," the very latest

sistent. In fact, t Is recognized as the
pioneer In the Inevitable return to the
era of "Sense and Sanity" In lighter
musical entertainments. Its comedy
appeals to Intelligence, yet Is neither
abstruse nor dull; Its lyrics are insist
ently rhythmic, although never trivially
tinkling; and Its music, while consist
ently operatic. Is always melodious and
possesses a pastoral quality of irresist

New Haven Theater.
The greatest success of the present
theatrlca.1 season comes to the New
Haven theater to-night, for three nights
end Wednesday matinee, In A., H.
Woods' magnificent production, "Queen
of the White Slaves." The author, Ar
thur J. Lamb, opens the play In a con
cert hall In San Francisco, and the
Bcenes which follow, the Palace hotel In
that city, a street scene, a superb resi
dence overlooking the harbor of the
"Golden Gate," the cabin and deck of
an ocean steamship, a detective adrift
on a raft In the middle of the Pacific,
and three scenes of a mandarin's palace
(n Hong Kong give ample opportunity
for the most lavish scenic expenditure
The story of the play is written in
fcuch an incisive and soul-stirring style
that the attention of the auditor Is irre
sistibly held from the rising of the cur
tain until Its final fall. Mr. Lamb's
characterizations in "Queen of the
White Slaves" are particularly strong,
those calling for especial mention being
James Wendell, a detective; "Smoke
Pot," a quaint negro; Ralph Grimes, an
agent of the Highbinders; Fong Low, a
Chinese- mandarin; Charles Fawn, a
victim of the opium habit; Maggie Mur
phy, .a flower girl; Mustang Mattie, a
dupe of Grimes; Grace Fawn, "Queen
of the White Slaves," and twenty other
The scenic production of "Queen of
the White Slaves" is described as being
magnificent and attention given to the
Oriental costumes, they having been
GAT NEW YORK.
That the centralization of clever ar
tists in every department of musical
comedy has wielded a mighty influence
In guiding the destinies of "Gay New
York," which comes to the New Haven
theater next Thursday, Friday and Sat
urday nights, cannot be gainsaid when
the reputations of the comedians and
eingers engaged in this whirligig of
melody and merriment are considered.
For Instance, such consummate come
dians as Dan Mason, Edward B. Ad
ams, Joseph F. Willard, Charles E.
Foreman, Edward Brennan, in conjunc
tion with many others of genuine re
nown, and such distinguished lady ce
lebrities as Louise Sanford, Lillian
Hoerlein, Kathryn Bartlett, augmented
by no less than a half score more of
famous vocalists and dancers, all occu
py positions of exceptional prominence
In this offering of many-sidod fun and
This marvelous collection of headline
talent is furthermore aided and abetted
by a bunch of feminine loveliness said
to outclass in ability as well and to
disport a succession of gown fads and
fancies jthat are simply incomprehensi
ble, so far as splendor Is concerned.
"Gay New York," thus equipped and
with a long and prosperous Berlin run
preceding its successful American ex
ploitation and with its pretentious
scenlo effects, is surely to be, depended
upon for an entertainment of no ordi
nary kind. .. .
Nothing mora convincing regarding
the general value of an entertainment
purpose could be desired than the un
conditional praise that has been meted
out to "Gay New York" In the press
reports which have' reached here. In
variably the aim of these writers has
been to make the novelty charm of this
musioal comedy stand out In 'bold re
He. This verdict has undoubtedly been
reached owing to the engagement of a
well defined story of fun complications
that gives to the structure a coheslve
ness which is lacking in most amuse
ment ventures, where street Is laid up
on the singing and other features. Mat
Poll's Jfew Theater.
Manager Poll's offering this afternoon
will be a three-feature bill composed of
the best headliners in the business. A
European sensation heads the aggrega
tion the Little Black Man, the East
Indian who has been all the rage all
over the circuit. This unjquo act has
crowded every vaudeville ' house that
has played him. He is a distinct nov
elty in vaudeville, and was imported
from Europe for a limited American
tour. His ring performance outshines
any previous attempts in this fine.
The second feature is to be McWat
ters, Ty3on and company, with' their
laughable and elaborate offering, "Vau
deville. Mr. McWatters gives a comical
Impersonation of Herrmann the Great,
and some of the song numbers will In
clude "Dream on" and "I am a Bach
elor." ' v
The third feature will be the famous
Ellinore sisters, with their specialty
number. They have of late been with

another big comedy number is being
prepared for them. '

Dr. and Mrs. Roberts with their
ditughter, Hazel Lavlnla Roberts, and
nlk?e, Maud Lines Hamilton, of Merl
den, went to Annapolis Thursday to'at
tend the graduating exercises to-day.
The matter came as a considerable
surprise, as It was thought there was
no danger of such action in connection
with Roberta- Roberts was the Invent
or what was called "the human auto
mobile," which was considered a harm
less prank. In the trial 1 of Midship
man Miller, also a member of the
graduating class, who was ordered to
be dlsmussed, and was pardoned by
President Roosevelt, Roberts was g
witness. Out of this arose the charges
The hazing system as practiced at
Annapolis is as old as the Institution.
The pranks exercised are said to be a
very mild form of hazing, and more
humorous than harsh. "The human au

amusement among those who heard of
