The Coltimliln Mnrfc IltirroiiKliM
Washington theatregoers have this sea
eon had a number of dramatizations of
books that have acquired a popular vogue
presented for their approval and except In
one Instance these offerings have proved
to possess but little dramatic merit and
have not deserved much serious consider
ation Still another play made over from
a work of fiction was presented at the
Columbia Theatre last night by Marie Bur
roughs and was acco ded n reception that
should put to rest any doubts In the mind
of the star as to the merits of her vehicle
The Battle of the Strong
Tho dramatization has been made by
Willis Steell and E E Rose the latter the
champion literary stage hack of the d-
The major portion of the work in tee
version of the Gilbert Parker story must
have been done by Mr Steell or else Mr
Rooe exercised extraordinary care In his
labors for it Is distinctly superior to the
average Rose dramatization In fact The
Battle of the Strong may be said la ail
verity to possess a great deal more real
merit than any play that has been con
structed from a novel and presented In this
city during the present year It has many
strong points and affords Miss Burroughs
a good chance to display her undeniable
abilities as an Interpreter of roles requir
ing strength and poner Her portrayal of
Guida Ianiiresse Is Uvid and accurate She
rises to her greatest heights perhaps In
tho second act whero she gives vent to
intense anguish and despair at the sudden
death of her grandfather De Mauprat who
expires believing in her guilt The au
dience last night took most kindly to Miss
Burroughs and The Battle of the Strong
and the play Is undoubtedly In for a de
servedly prosperous eniragMwnt
The locale of The Battle of the Strong
Is the Isle of Jersey the time is just at
the beginning of the French Revolution
at the end of the eighteenth century
Guida has secretly been married to Philip
dAvranche who immediately after the
ceremony leaves for France abjuring his
newly made wife to keep the knowledge
ot their union from everyone Philip in
France marries the daughter of a French
nobleman While at her Jersey home much
trouble befalls Guida The discovery that
she Is soon to become a mother
in the death other grandfather and causes
the gc nd people of the vUlage to rhun
her Still she believes In and trusts
Philip looking dally for his return After
the birth of her child the only comfort
she ha3 Is given by Detricand who cf
course supplies the very necessary love
interest Philip returns from France as
an admiral and visiting tbe hut of Guida
a decidedly stormy scene ensues An at
tempt to take away Guidas boy is talked
by Detricand who in the last act fights
a duel with faithless Philip who finally
meets his death at tho hand of Dormy
Jamais a half witted follower ofDetrl
cand The curtain fall3 on a happy scere
with Guida and the constant Detricand
declaring their love for each other
In making the stage version tie adapters
have failed to take advantage of the char
acter of Ranulph Delagarde the falthrul
and honest admirer of Guida who In tho
Parker story assumes a very important
place while In the play h9 Is almost en
tirely obfuscated If the play may be said
to have one fault It is a lack ot the hu
morous element although If several roles
were In different hand3 this deficiency
might not exist as several actors to whom
are entrusted parts that contain much ma
tcrial that should produce laughs fall to
take full advantage ot tho playwrights
lines The action of the piece Is cumula
tive and It anything the fourth act is
the strongest The second and third drops
of the curtain last night were signalized
by cuthursts of genuinely hearty applause
and Miss Burroughs and the members of
her company were compelled to acknowl
edge the plaudits before the curtain
Judged by his excellent work there can
be no truth In the stories that recently
camc from the West regarding Maurice
Barrymores impaired health His De
tricand 13 splendidly conceived and
portrayed and the players entire
work is marked with all of his
old time vim and dash and a more
Impetuous careless- and brave friend
of the lovable Innocent Guida would be
hard to Imagine Another member of the
large and excellent caste whose enorts
are so good as to assume unlooked for pro
portions is Jennie Kelffarth as Almable
the good woman whose kindness makes
her a most delightful personage Hol
brook Blinn an actor of excellent method3
Is sufficiently villainous to win hisses
from the upper portions of the house The
Dormy JamaU of Frederick Perry Is one
of the ablest characters of the entire per
formance and from an Insignificant bit
in his hands tt Is made to stand out in
bold prominence as a remarkably clever
drawing Other praiseworthy members of
the company Include Roland Gibson and
Charles Lane both members of last sum
mers Columbia Theatre stock company
Frank G Henderson Blanche Alexander
and Elizabeth Woodson

If the War Department ha3 any real de
sire to learn how to bring to a successful
termination the conflict In the Philippines
a representative should be sent to the Na
tional Theatre this week to observe the
methods of Actor James K Hackett and
note the case and nonchalance with which
he slaughters his enemies aided only by
bis trusty blade and a few heroic lines
which delight tho audience and for tho
moment thrill the gallery occupant and
transport him hack to the good old days of
The Mountain Scout and other plays of
the ilk in which human life Is of small ac
count and easily dona away with A bat
talion of James K Harketts armed of
course with such sword as he uses in
The Pride of Jennlco could bring to
utter rout any foe the United States ever
had Mr Hackett has before been placed
in dramas In which the rapier occupied a
prominent place but he has never been
compelled to make such a heroic figure and
to take life so ruthlessly as In his latest
piece the work of Abbey Sage Richardson
and Grace Turnlss and described as a
mrlodramatic romance
The audience at the National Theatre
last night was the largest that has ever
attended any of Mr Hackctts opening
performances and it enjoyed The Pride
of Jcnnico without stint It Is not the
players fault that the offering Is one of
the moat improbable affairs that has been
put on a Washington stage for many days
suffice that this stalwart young actor
sizes up to the part of Basil Jennlco in
ecry requirement H is given many op
portunities tii display love and hatred
happiness and temporary despair and ev
ery once and a while the authors have
permitted blm to become mildly humor
ous Compared with his previous work
showed In this city and particularly in
Rupert ot Hentzau In which he was
sen last Mr Hackett has made a notable
advance In his art and wcro he fitted with
a better play there could be no doubt of
his great artistic success He is one of
the very best of the younger stars of the
period he possesses an attractive person
ality that combines tho quality that has
been termed magnetism and which is so
essential to the actor ho reads his linos
with much intelligence and his work
throughout the three acts of the Richard
SFurnis3 piece i3 remarkably virile
lame day he will come to the Capital with
a suitablo play and will then bo accounted
really great At present he Is wonderfully
successful from a populnr viewpoint
The rlde of Jennlco serves to In
troduce to Washington a young actrei3 of
unusual merit Mls3 Bertha Galland who
some years ago was a starring in the
smaller town of the country and who
later on nppenrcd for one afternoon at a
matinee especially designed to Hhiiw the
metropolitan managers the quality of
work she was capable of Only one mana
ger ot the entire numocr who attended
this trial performance Daniel Frohman
detected the genius of the young woman
and his astuteness has bpen fully con
firmed by her admirable work In Mr
Hacketts present plecfcLur which fche ap
pear3 as the Princess OlBlio Her arch
piquancy In Jier firsrarqualntanceship
with Jennlco the radiant Happiness of the
honeymoon period and thcjnjured dignity
of the wife are all finely and clearly

Henry Guy Carlctons clever comedy
A Glided Fool proved one of Nat Good
wins earliest successes and for a long
time after Its premier it retained a promi
nent place in the comedians repertoire
so that the selection of thrs play for the
currtnt week3 offering by the Lafayette
Stock Company comes as a pleasing re
vival to those who saw Mr Goodwin
while to others the many clever situa
tions bright lines and bits of pathos form
a delightful evenings entertainment In
a stock production one does not look for
the fine effects and finesse so noticeable
after weeks of rehearsals but the per
formance last night was a credit to the
energy and capability of Manager Bergers
company The story deals with the ad
ventures of a man who has been left a
fortune without the knowledge of how to
use It and who through the desire to
gain experience loses the bulk of his
money In the mean time however he
meets and wins a very charming girl
which compensates him for all that he
has lost There are several minor though
Interesting underplots which are well
carried and the whole performance was
probably one ot the smoothest yet offered
by the Lafayette company
Eugene Ormonde plays the title rcle
and while his interpretation Is naturally
a different one than that given by Mr
Goodwin It Is nevertheless an Intelligent
and interesting drawing of the character
The role Is a sympathetic one liberally
spiced with comedy and Mr Ormonde
proicd himself quite equal to Its require
ments John T Sullivan plays tho villain
Banister Strange and as usual gives the
role his careful consideration While he
has become identified with roles of this
type the fact certainly cannot be looked
upon as disparagement In view of his ex
cellent work Robert Rogers as the Rev
Jacob Howell deceives not only those in
the play but the audience and proves
himself a worthy candidate for a place on
the roster of the sleuth department
Charles Wyngato has a pleasing role in
Jack Duval which he handles very skill
fully Hh dramatic denouncement of
Strange to exceptionally well done Fred
erick Sullivan docs another clever bit as
DePuyster a dude No matter how small
the role Mr Sullivans work to thorough
and it is a fact to be regretted that ha is
not entrusted with more important parts
Miss Percy Haswcll is a charming Mar
garet Ruthven The part is not dramatic
but is pleasing and MIS3 Haswell plays It
easily and gracefully Louise Macintosh
has another good character part In that
of Jessica Rood an old maid devoted to
the heathen and Isjery amusing in her
frequent Illusions to herdeceased ances

The Grand Vaudeville
Chases was a popujar place yesterday
afternoon anu the matinee audience was
the largest Monday opening that the house
has ever had except on a holiday The
Immense gathering appeared to enjoy tho
work of Al Leech and his three Rosebuds
above any other number of the programme
and the act went with a rush Leech has
changed the offering a little since it was
last seen at the Grand and the alteration
has been for the better It is one Ot tho
funniest vehicles In vaudeville and It Is
splendidly Interpreted by the principal
player and his three associates Hester
Armstrong a Washington girl Norma
Mcndla and Cara Ktlanl
The conspicuous place on the bill Is
given to an operatic comedy so called
which enlists the services of five good
operatic artists Playwright George II
Broadburst who has written several suc
cessful fares has taken Flotows beauti
ful Martha and tampered with the lines
by Introducing a godd deal of modern
slang which tends to cheapen tho piece
There to no doubt but that It would be
a better entertainment It Mr Broadhursts
contribution were dispensed with alto
gether and the original lines substituted
for as at present given the audience la
undecided as to whether to take the affair
seriously or accept Jt as a condensed
comic opera Some of the principal num
bers of Martha are rendered very ac
ceptably and Myra French the soprano
wins considerable approbation by her sing
ing ot The Last Rose of Summer The
ensemble work especially the spinning
song and a good night number is effec
tive Assisting in the presentation are
Elvira Crolx Seabrcoke Edgar Temple J
C Taylor and Henri Laurent
Mark Sullivan has a pleasing act lu
which he gives excellent Imitations of
tome well known actors Those who come
within the range of the Sullivan represen
tation are Dan Daly Lew Dockstader
Frank Daniels James Thornton Willis P
Swcatman James T Powers John T Kel
ly and J II Stoddard Besides these
varied Impersonations Mr Sullivan shows
the difference between the old time and
up to date coon songs and concludes his
remarkably good turn with an imitation
ot an amateur song and dance team mak
ing thir first appearance Morion and El
liott billed as a musical team with oddi
ties prove to be but ordinary musicians
but their clever weaving of fanciful de
signs from sheets ot plain paper is one of
the most novel bits of work that has been
seen on the Chase stage for a long time
Maud Mclctyre slng3 character songs very
acceptably while her story telling is a
great aid In winning an encore
The programme Includes two sketches
both different In character and entitled
A Sporty Education ana In Hayin

Van SIcklin and Wallace Campbell while
the bucolic playlet is given by Theodore
