Iirew Is well known In New Haven and we believe be felt thoroughly nt home liero last evening. V. Somerset JIaiiKhani's "Jink Straw," In whleh Mr. Drew has ap peared In the title role for some months In Now York and In which be Is now to appear on an extended tour of the country, of which New Haven was the premier, is a thoroughly Eng lish comedy, anil like most sm b It l founded upon an almost unimaginable and thoroughly artificial plot. KiiKlish comedies of this sort lack that inde scribable gusto and spontaneity which our own American product has as a rule, but "Jack Straw proved to 1e somewhat less Impossible and slightly more exhilarating than l.'ic average from foggy London. Mr. Prow was ns Drewesque (to coin a word) ns ever. He had the same 111. tie mannerisms ns of old- mannerisms which are, not displeasing, mind you, In 111 in. but which would tie sure to be III any other, lie takes drawing room etiquette quite ns a duck does to wa ter. He rnn play the part of the lappy-go-lucky society man, whom nothing irritates, as naturally as any actor on the American stage to-day, but to imagine him playing another type of role were absolutely Impossible. For that reason be falls short of being by any means a gn at actor. The story of the plot ni.-n he quick ly rehearsed. At a certain Ixindon Ivtel a man Is a waiter. To the hotel comes a newly-rich social-climber, who there snubs a friend of a woman of the nobility. The latter, to make the latter smart for her net. hires the waiter to pa.s 'himself off as a member of the nobility to get the no-rlal-cliinber to fawn upon him. All works well, until the fact leaks out that he has been a waiter and be ii exposed. The soclal-cllmbor Is highly wrought and orders aim out of her house, which he will not do. Her at tempts to rid herself of him makes all the fun of the play. In the end the man turns out to he really of the nobility and really to he the very man he had pretended to be. He had taken the position at the hotel as a walttr when tired of his stupid court lit'" Jut to see If he could not make his v. ,iv by his wits.

In the meantime fallen In love, and obtains It. Mr. Drew Is the waiter-noble. The social-climber was Hose (Nigblnn, and her daughter was Mary Bohind -Ue two notable exceptions noted above. Miss Cnghlnn xiipplled the life of thn evening's entertulnrneiiL and Ml.'.s Holmul, the beauty. With Mr. Drew they made It thn success It was. Miss Coghlan played the part of Mrs. Park er Jennings, who had lately come In to millions through her himliund. If one can Imagine a second Mt'n, Mala pi'oj) in such circumstances one can Imagine Mrs, Jennings before the footlights last evening. The pnrt was well drawn by the. author and excel lently played by the actress. Miss JioUind'w role was by no means a heavy one. It was simplicity Itself, and the Impression she made was due rather to her personal attractiveness than to anything else. It was some what dilllcult to Imagine such a sweet ami lovable daughter being the child of two such Impossibles of the nou veau rich class us were her mother and fatner, however, MIsh Roland's gowns, as were those of all the ladles of the caste, were exceptionally pleas ing. ' Special mention should he made of Charles n. Hopkins, who appeared In a small part', (hat of the bead waiter at the hotel, appearing only In the first act. To recall to New Haveners that. It was this same Mr. Hopkins' who was a member of the Vale class of I On", and who has appeared time and again before locnl audiences with the Vale liramatln association, of which he was nt one time president, Is assurance enough that his profes sional theatrics, no matter how great or small, were flawless, New I In veil takes an Interest In him and hopes to see him In something where his marked abilities will bo better shown ere long. "Jack Straw" Is nn exceptionally short play. The first curtain did not rise until after R:M last evening and In spite of long intervals between acts, tho final curtain was rung down at 1:30. When, in addition, the fact Is realized that the whole first ad Is not absolutely necessary to the production as a whole. It may be sep what a small germ of stagedom the author has developed Into nil evening's entertain ment. The whole story of the first act could easily have been recounted by a skillful dramatist In short order in con versation during the second act. had be wanted to do so. "Jack straw" was booked for only one night's engagement in New Haven. There was a big house and society was well represented. " K. Pronouncing 'Taliaferro." In view of the fact that on Christ mas day this week Miss Mabel Talla ferro will appear In New Haven In the play "Tolly of the Circus." It may be of Interest locally to know how this charming young actress' surname U pronounced In her own section of the country. Miss Taliaferro conies from the south, where there are many of her name. In that section "Taliaferro Is pronounced Just as If tt were spelled "Tollvef." and not at nil ns one might .suppose. There litis been considerable speculatii n on this point.
