Ignore Ulric Doctor Lum Lo?, Chinese woman _ physician Marion Abbott T?y Yah, Uen Whi'j old nurse _ _ . _ Jane Ferrell Tom I^e, a student Edmond Lowe Fang Fou Hy. arch enemy of liberty _ Frederic Hurt Fen-8ha, ty rambler Harry Mestayer The official orator John Aniory Doctor Dong Toag. an exile Thomas Ftndlay And a large supporting cast. A play of romance, of atmosphere, of intrigue, and of tragedy, and skill fully interwoven, is "The Son-Daugh ter." The theme is an old one?the conflict between love and patriotism; but it is given a new charm by the Oriental setting and the truly re markable acting of ignore Ulric. "that dear, wonderful girl," as David Belasco referred to her in a brief cur tain speech. Indeed, It is difficult to predict the measure of success of the j Pl*y without Miss Ulric, for her role is the center of all interest, and she | has Injected Into the drama a per- I sonal quality that lifts it above the I ! mediocre. Lien Wha is the Innocent and beau | tlful little daughter of Dr. Dong Tong. a Chinese exile who is living in Ne^r Tork and who is secretly giv ing support to the revolution. A hun dred thousand dollars has to be raised for the purchase of arms. As a last resort to secure the funds. Dr. Dong Tong. much against his will, finally consents to sell his daughter to the highest bidder. Lien Wha, the "little swallow," as her father called her, Is in love with Tom Lee. a student, but they sacri fice this love on the altar of patriot Ism. and the little girl weds the high est bidder. Fen-Sha. a gambler and Imperialist, known as the "sea-crab." Fen-Sha has Dr. Dong Tong killed to recover the money paid for the bride, and he likewise has his thugs attack Tom Lee. who, they have dis covered. is a Chinese prlntfe and a revolutionary leader. In revenge the bride, while on the nuptial couch witl? her husband, deftly coils his queque around his neck and stran gles him tojdeath. The prince recov ers from the as&ault upon him and the play ends happily. The love scenc In the first act Is one of the most romantic passages presented for a long, long time. Girls who are just thrilling to hear real words of love?not sickly sentimen tality. but pure deep love that flows spontaneously from the depths of the heart?w-IIl want to see the play. But I they will be no more thrilled than apparently "little swallow" was while "Lovelorn," her true mate, j showered honeyed words upon her. Lenore Ulrfc might well be called the perfect lover. But In the highly emotional parts, calling for the great est talent, she is Just as much an trtist. There are two dramatic scenes filled with tenseness and shot through with emotion, and in both she Is admirable. One is when Dr. Tong. after having f given his daughter permission to marry Tom Lee. commands her to sacrifice her love for her country. On | top of this the student, after sug gesting that the girl flee with him. acquiesces in the supremacy of duty to country and prepares to leave for China. For realistic crying Miss Ulric is without an equal. The second and more dramatic of the two scenes is whe'e the bride seated on the nuptial couch, falls into the embrace of her husband and then suddenly tightens the queue around bis neck. The lamp is knocked over and in the darkness can be heard the scuffling and the pantings of the girl as irhe tugs and tugs to kill the "sea fi??' "lowly sh* drags the lifeless body into the light falling from a joss altar, and kneeling over the form, hisses curses of revenue upon the fiend. . pIay properly ends with the killing of the "sea-crab" and the re covery of the prince, but another scene has been added by Mr Belasco. This explanation appears on the pro gram: A Chinese custom requires that the orator coi*e before the curtain and lead your fancy onward." In ac cordance with this custom a fantas tically dressed Oriental appears be .ore the curtain and In a whimsical f?4. r*f1h*r fashion explains that all has ended well, that the orince and his "little swallow" have ived happily evor since, and that, having been married a sufficient time. they are now the proud parents of a of TThlch a person might well have Inferred without over straining his imagination and with out sitting through an extra .scene The scene has no dramatic value for the interest is satisfied at the end of the preceding scene. Its only appar ent purpose is to relieve the rather melodramatic and tragic tone of the preceding scene and leaves a pleas ant taste in the mouths of all. but It is so obviously parasitic that it is not justified even by such a considers Hon. Miss Ulric is ever sweet and dainty and her ingenuous remarks, her naive ways, and her pleasant voice win the Ofo. thew *ud'ence Edmond Lowe.

There come to the great forests a couple?one a ^irl born and bred there, but who ha* been to the Stai?s. The other ia her husband?a roan to whom the solitudes and vastnesaes of the north are unbearable, who llk?s them not and who yearns to get bavk to the civilization which he knows. He shudders at the law of the wooU* ?that might is right. There also comes into the play John St. John, a reckless love-adven turer. who Immediately on seeing *hc girl, demands her for his own. Thea-:: three, with others, are trapped In a cabin by a heavy snow, and thsro ensues a battle for the lovfl of the woman. The husband, fear of law and con vention bred into him, loses the lo/e of his wife when he refuses to kill St. John when that individual makes very decided advances toward hn wife. The wife, a veritable daughter of the northwoods. finds her love turn to contempt for her husband, whom she now sees as a coward, and promises to go away with St. John. And then comes a melodramatic finale in which there is the well known shot in the dark, and all that, and when the lights flash on again St. John lies quite dead, the wife rushes Into her husband's arms, and the audience is left to conclude that they lived happily ever after. Without dilating on the impossi bilities of the story, we feel impelled to record that the play throughout falls to convince, even disregarding auch small fapses of intelligent stago management as having a wbman start oout into the rigors of a northwest winter clad in nothing wirmer than a quite ordinary dress. Led tp expect a startling and rath er unusual denouement, the audience la disappointed at the end in having the play terminate in just such .1 humdrum and ordinary manner as might have been expected from those old ten-twenty-thirty mellerdram mera.' Indeed, that is just what "When a Man's a Man" reminds one of. How ever, It must also be written. In all fairness, that many in last nights audience seemed to enjoy the play. Much is done to make it enjoyable. In fact, by .the stellar work of a cast of players who are peculiarly well fitted to portray the backwoods char acters which they represent. Macey Harlam as John St. John Is as like able a villain as one might meet, while Pauline Lord as Marie Smith, the woman, gives a portrayal with which It is Impossible to find fau"t. She plays the role as well as the story will permit. The others In the cast are all ex cellent. and this is high praise '.n that the characters they play are unusually difficult. The single set ting in which the story is told Is alsj remarkable for ita excellence and fi delity. B. F. KEITH'S. Prohibition is closing up the caba rets everywhere, driving the enter tainers back into vaudeville. This1 was evident at B. F. Keith's last night for the bill, with one or two exceptions, has a cabaret flavor that ia unmistakable. Stella Mayhew and Joe Howard were picked by the man agement for heailliner*, but last night'a large audience preferred Lynn Cowan as a wearer of the medals. If ability to pound the Ivories, blow Into a eaxaphone while in all posl i tions, dance eccentrically and excited ly and sing cabaret songs that can not but "go over" makes a winner, | then Lynn Cowan is a winner. As- j sisted by Bill Bailey, an artist on a j banjo, and Estelle Davis, who has red hair and plays a saxaphone, Cowan ! ran away with the evening's honors, , , He worked hard enough for It, | | though, so that's all right. John Oluran and La Petite .Marguer ite offered another act of a cabaret flavor, dancing and posing artistical ly. Both performers were agile to an extreme and deserved the applause given them. Tony Hunting and Corlnne Francis have a sketch that lived because of Tony's lively dancing. Stella May hew.consumed much Idle time to close , with "Uncle Tom's Cabaret," which seemed to please.

This is the fifteenth yearly tour of this noted or ganisation, and this year's vehicle, "Putting It Over," In two acts and half a dosen striking scenes, is one of the snappiest performances seen here this season. A large part of the success of the show is due to Harry H. Lander, a comedian new to Washington audi ences. but one who ranks imong the topnotchers in the burlesque field.

AMUSEMENTS FRENCH TRAINS TO USE RADIO SIGNALS System Being Tried Out With Hope of Reducing Num ber of Accidents. NEW YORK. Nov. IX.?Railway ac cidents have been ao frequent and dis astrous recently that French en gineers are experimenting with new methods to signal trains, says a copy right Paris dtspatche to the Naw York World. The French system has always been considered good, but such speed has been attained by locomotives that It Is inefficient. Attempts are being made to use wireless telegrapher for signaling and all the trials have given satisfac tion. The principal method of signaling In this way would be for a train preced | ins another to send out at Intervals (lashes whlc)> would be picked up by the aprpoaehlng locomotive. This would do away with the danger that escaping steam might blind an engine driver and .prevent his seeing a dan ger signal, as happened last week. AMUSEMENTS.
