of congratulation that Mi Itobson -has
succeeded in finding a chaiacter from

THE WRONG MR. WRIGHT.
riensed n Largo Audience nt the

"The Wiong Mr. Wright," Roland
Heed's new comedj, received Its first
presentation In this city at the rioth
ingham last night as a benefit for the
local ordet of Elks There was a largo
audience and the comedy was well re
ceived. Aftet the second act Mr. Heed
was called before the curtain and made
one of his chaiacterlstlc speeches.
The comedv was written for Mr
Heed by Utoige H. Hroadhurst and Is
one of the best In which he has ap
peared. The story Is as follows. "Sey
mour Sites (Mr. Heed) Is a 'Frisco
millionaire who has been jobbed by
foigery pf $50,000 by his cashier. He
heats that the forger has gone to Old
Point Comlort nnd goes there himself,
to do some detective woik on his own
hook, assuming the name of "Mr
Wright.' It happens that the, forger
has also assumed the name, "Mr.
Wright," and as (he detectives get af
ter the mllllonalie for cobbing him
self, tho opportunities for amusing sit
uations aro xory good. The chief de
tective Is a woman, 'Henrietta Oliver'
(Miss Hush), and Instead of capturing
him as a criminal she apprehends Sites
as a husband,"
In tho character of Seymour Sites Mr.
Heed has a role particularly well suit
ed to him and the eamo can be said
of Miss Isadora Hush, who was at
her best as the dashing female detec
tive. Charles Coate made a distinct hit
as Lord Hrazenface, a degenerate. As
a character actor he takes high rank

that a robbery had occuned, Police
Lieutenant Williams was leady to go
on the stand to give the prisoners
confession, but his testimony was
tuled out on the ground that a person
can not confess to a cilme until the
cilme Is pioven. Mr. Thacr, attorney
for Toohlll, succeeded In sccutlng this
ruling from Judge Edwards, and had
the satisfaction of seeing his man
walk out of the court loom free, al
though theie was no doubt ns to his

the technicality to the Jury, remarked
that It was better to allow a guilty
man to go free than to violate the laws
of Justice governing tilals.
