piece Is In a class b Itself A local -audience
has never seen its equal in point
of elaborateness rich costuming beauti

lection of young women to f slst his star
who easll make one of tliL most alluring
pictures of lovel femlninit Imaginable
The Columbia Theatre v ris crow ded last
night when the Held piece was given its
first local presentation and throughout
the jwrformance there were almost in
numerable evidences of the pronounced
success of the offering From the picture
disclosed when the curtain was lifted 1 1
Itially until the concluding chorus the
musical piece presented a succession of
surprises corned scenic sirtorlol and
musical Ever woman In Washington

Held and her beautifully gowned asso
ciates will rcadil ln come a habit
JIarry B Smith is programmed as the
author of the llbrclto part or the affair
while the musical numbers are by Regi
nald DeKoven Mr Smith has merely
provided tho thinnest sort of a story
which concerns Claire dc Brlon The IU
tle Duchess who has an encumbrance
in the shapo of an uncle a count some
body who has an Infallible sstem for
beating the gaming table with the cus
tomary result A oung English officer
meet Claire becomes immediately en
amored of her charms and makes violent
love whenever the librettist gives him a
chance The Littlo Duchess Is at Os
tend while her apartments In Paris aro
levied upon by reason of her uncles debts
I The officers are supposed to take posses
sion of a bundle of letters of msterlous
Import and the major portion of the even
ing Is devoted to the recovery of the epis
tles but even after the have been recov
ered Mr Smith has been unthoughtful
enough to forget to take his audience into
his confidence told tell what the Impor
tant letters were all about Incidentally
a bathing master played by Charles A
BIgelow a fencing master with a pen
chnnt for dueling plajed by Joseph Her
bert Russian baront and baroness and
a score of subsidy characters aro Intro
duced and all Join in the chaso for the
duchess letters It Isnt much of a story
but tho hodge podge la eood tfough to
permit tho scenic artist and the costumer
to score a triumph And after ever thing
la snlil nhnnt lh M nnil MTlTirrt I
pany it must be confessed that the greet
success Tho Little D ichess vvill un
doubted attain will bj due principally
to the splendors of the production tho
scenic portion of the1 show the dresses
the be nitlful girls ariJ the adept manner
n wijch the stage manager George Ma
rlon Las handled thcimaterlal at his com
Because The Llttfe Duchess Is a sar
torial success first last and all the time
a -whole paragraph In due this part of the
entertainment Thoflrst act Is located at
Ostend with a remarkably fine presenta
tion of the watering place by artist Al
bert Here the audience is given a view
of Mr Zlegfclds beauties In their bath
ing suits which is perhhDS the most en
trancing picture a local audience has wit
nessed In many a day and it is doubtful
if its like will be sen again for an equal
period The designer ha3 provided a rare
combination of color work that elicited a
burst of applause last night when the
garnering got ita first -view of the ani
mated and gorgeous representation of the
famous beach During th act the oung
women have an opportunit for several
effective changes of costume but It re
mains forthe second act which transpires
at the boudoir of Claire In Paris to make
almost every woman in the audience in
stinctively wish she wcro a member of the
Held chorns -and have the chance to re
gard herself In the superb creations of
the most eminent of the French modistes
As a brilliant multi colored spectacu
lar prodigal pageantry of managerial
magnificence this second act of Miss
Hclds piece is without parallel and there
Is not much likelihood Uiat It will be often
dupilMtesd not only for financial reasons
but because there is a limit to human
Ingenuity and In The Little Duchess
this seems to have been reached by the
French costume designers The third
act Is laid In a fencing academy with the
members of the chorus garbed In a etch
ing costume of black velvet skirt leach
ing to the knees and white waists with
a blood red heart over the left breast If
the dressmakers of Washington respond
as llberallv to the allurements of The
Little Duche s ns they should for purely
business reasons the Columbia will bo too
small to hold the regular patrons of the
house this vve eV
Mbs Held has never done any better
work than In this new offering not even
In Papas Wife where her drunken
scene won for her columns of critical
praise Mr Smith has -written In a bit
that recalls this scene from his earlier
work and given it a place in the second
act where Claire assumes madness to rid
herself of some undesirable visitors It
is capitally done and Is about the best
acting she displas durirg the perform
ance The tar Is supplied with a num
ber of good musical numbers but It is in
the second act when he sings -Sadie in
sisted by a score of the chorus in their
sumptuous costumes that she scores her
greatest success Her song Chloe was
also recelved warmly and had to b re
peated several times
The eonspicuous member of the sup
porting company is Charles A BIgelow
without whom no Held entertainment
would be considere d complete In The
Little Duchess Mr BIplow Is a bathing
master whose phsjca charms he be
lieves compel a surrcnderilrom all wo
men He Ins plenty of comedy work
nnd it is useless quite lo sa that he
takes better care eif it than almost any
other cometllan could His table d hote
win of The French Maid has a for
midable rival In The Menagerie model
ed much arter the previous successful
Ming Last nlghtM audience thought so
well of The Menagerie that It had to
be sung six or seven times more than Mr
BIgelow originally Intended The comedi
an hassome excellent scenes with Eva
Davenport another familiar member of
Miss Held s former companies In the new
ple ce Miss Davenport Is a Jtussian bvron
ess with a fondness for heroes She Is
one of the few women who possess the
saving grace of humor nnd In the Smith
DeKoven work her success Is as great as
Joseph Herbert prhaps the best ec
centric comesllan engaged In musical en
terprise In this country ploys an excita
ble French dueling mafeter as only he
can and his work Is unlfdrml pleasing
and abseilutely faultless George Marlon
besides deserving of much praise for his
admirable contribution to the production
as the stage manager of the piece intir

Duchess cleverly and without the slight

From S K oclock list evening until a
few- minutes after II a large ludlenc
found much unnlotd enjojment at the
National Theatre It was unexpected
pleasure in a small way to some of the
audience too for thone seeing Francis
Wilson ear after ear had grown to ex
pect about the same old thing Interpreted
by a clever star and an fmllffcrent sup
port This disappointment gave the un
locked for pleasure Mr Wilson is as
before but his offering and his company
are the best he has had for man sea
sonscertainly since the day of Half n
King nnd possibly several years pre
vious to Uiat time That theromblnatlon
was an agreeable one was exemplified I
continuous applause repeas1 encore
and unsuccessful demands pr a speech
But that was to lie expecteV except th
lack of an ante curtnin orutlon by th
Tho Strollers Is new to Washington
It Is a freo adaptation from th original
German the Interpretation being mado b
Krcnn nnd Lindau tho book by the peren
nial Harry B Smith and tho music by
Ludwlg Englander The Story differs lit
tle from that of other comic operas a
littlo more coherent posslbiy and better
told ns a rule The dialogue Is bright and
tho little interjected Wilson witticisms
and epigrams are splco to tho tasteful
menu The music Is alwns tuneful
though little of It Is whlstleable Mr Wil
son gets some good rlcs and others of
the company aro well suited also so the
combination goes to make up an evening
of real profit to one with ees or
Ideas of humor
Considering the work of Mr Wlson a
critic might turn to his ccrnpbook of last
car or that of two seasons ago and
Justly reproduce what was then printed
regarding the star Originally original
nrd artistic Mr Wilson remains so He
is the iimc today tomorrow and forever
lie dancts exceptionally well this season
or ma be the nuiMg appeals more to his
heels than to his larynx Of course he
has all the comedy lines and the centra
of the stage w7ire the calcium shines
but to one knowing their power there
are at least two of the support who could
lose Mr Wilson In his own opera if ho
gave them half a Chance
The lirst of these individuals is Eddie
Foy who has one isong and gets seven
encores without half trlng Ills make
up is unique and his business original
Tien there is T II Don late comedian
of tiie ill fated Belle of Bohemia whose
eh iracter study elf Prince Bomskv Is ex-
ceptionall good and whose ability shows
air through tile small part The little
squeak In his voice tt e- and
the windmill movement of the arms 1
are so unique and humorous that one
lrMrt1 Mr Tlon had more to do
Then a new man Joseph Ratllff has a bit
of merit or makes merit out of a bit and
has the atmosphere of the part Harry
Fairleigh a good loe king oung chap with
a tenor voice sings well and acts fairly
no prn Intended and Wllmer Bentle and
Hurry Stuart are good in small roles
There is a great deal of local pride In
r ordlng the success of Irene Bentlcy
Iier hit was Instantaneous and pro
nounced Gcntllit surrounds her and
even the hOdenish attire and vocabulary
of the first act fall to hide the lad ship
of the Oung woman Her second act is
one of the prettiest bits of work seen
here in many a day and her flirtation
song with tho male horus and theila
quecn ribbons was sa popular last night
that a dozen recalls -ere recelveeL She
reads her lines well and her voice has Im
proved perceptibly since her last appear
ance locally Marie George does som
good rork her solo In the second act and
her aid to Mr Wilson and Mr Don in a
tuneful trio being especially notable
There are but two women part3 worthy
of record though Ltitta Watson and Stel
la Borland nre also programmed
George Lederers taste and elaborate
ness are dlsplaed In the costuming of the
chorus and in the scenic equipment The
setting of the last act Is particularly
agreeable A word In passing is due the
National orchestra for its rendition pi
Mr Englanders score which has prob
ably never been better plaed The only
matinee will be on Saturday
Cliiir SirntiBer In Sew York
A change from straght vaudeville to
farce comedy at Chases Is effected this
week by the reappearance of the Chase
musical corned stock company in Hosts
A Strarger In New York The company
Is practically the same as that which
closed the past season at this house and
the reception accorded the leading mem
bers vestsrday showed that they had not
been lorgotten In the interim while the
increase in the size of the audierces -v ould
Indicate that the temporary change in the
policy of the house is approved of by its
Otis Harlan In the chief part of the
piece impersonated himself to the seem
ing satisfaction of ever one and by his
indefatigable efforts carried the entire
performance safelv th ough the dangers
of the commonplace and lack of merit
evidenced b several members of the
company in the first act particularly His
songs were applauded to the echo but his
supply of encores was equal to the de
Mary -Marble In a Vesta Tllley costume
had one song pertaining to rag time
for her cleverness
that gave her wide scope
ness and In the third act she was
pleasng when in a pretty Chinese
costume she was one of tho Chinese duo
In a well arranped and executed song
and dance Little Chip the other mem
ber of the du wis equally as funny in
both the characters entrusted to him but
neither of theni gave him as much of an
opportunity as he deserved and Is cap
able of grasping
The other members of the company
who contributed to the musical and terp
slchonan feat ires with which the piece
abounds were John W Early whose ex
cellent voice wtis heard to advantage in
n couple of songs of the basso variety
Lindsay J Hall John W Dunne David
Andraua Tony Hart Maudo Scott and
the Ryeford Sisters
Ihe costumes were fairly tasteful as
were also the settings The choruses were
well rendere d and made the fact quite
apparent that the feminine portion had
been chosen for its ability rather than Its
physical attractiveness The patriotic mc
langi at the close of the second act given
b the entire conipany was ene of the
most commendable features of the per
formance There will lie a daily matinee
during the week
The Acndeiii HnKBeil Ileni
An audience that filled the of
Music to overflowing wltne ssed the In
itial performance last night of A
Ragged Hero It -was the biggest Mon
dv nsht house of the- season and many
wero turned away Judging from tho
applause which greeted tho efforts of the
plaers and the climaxes of each act the
Immense throng was thoroughly enter
tained It would seem that melodrama
is the favorite form or amusement with
the Academy patrons and A Ragged
Hero Is nothing If not melodramatic so
that it Is safe to assume that the now
play will be received with large and en
thusiastic audiences during the balance
of the week
It has been said that realism in melo
drama has reacheel its apex and that
ever conceivable form of thriller had
been utilized b the melodramatic authors
from Joseph Arthur to Scott Marble but
Mr Fielding tho author of A Ragged
Hero has discovered a few new ones
Tho most notable of the new efferts Is
that which ends the second act A little
girl Is Imprisoned in the I pper story of
a burning house with no apparent means
of escape The tot runs to the window
opens It and is about to Jump to the
nrd below when the Wandering Willie
of thu play happens along Ho endeavors
to buna In the door and reach Ine stair
way but Is driven back by the smoke and
flames He looks around for a laider tut
there Is none In sight His eyes fall upon
a swing hanging from tho large maple
tree In the ard The nomad seizes the
swing mounts with It to the barn and
swings up to the burning window calling
to tho littlo ono to Jump toward him The
child obes and Jumps into Willies
arms as the llames close round her The
tumultuous applause which greeted this
sensational effect must have convinced
those who were Interested In tho plaa
success that novelt in sci nlc effect will
alwas be acceptablo to tho patrons of
popular price theatres
Almost equal effective was the scene
which closes the third act It is made
known In this act that the hero of the
play who has be n unjustly incarcerated
in the count Jail for anothers crime has
through the efforts of bis sweetheart
been granted a reprieve The swetheart
hastens from tin Governors urflee to
carry tle document to the warden of th 1
Jill There- Is a heav storm and her
horse falls as she ncars the top of a hill
on tho opposite side of which she must
