BURLESQUE ON BROAD LINES Fritz Ullliunis as Mr, Crewe Does (mhmI Clmrneter Acllim Others Score, "Mr. Crewe's Career," the play founded upon Mr. Winston i 'hnrclilll's well-known novel of the same inline, is founded upon very broad lines as was shown at the Hyperion theater here last evening when It was present ed for the first time upon any stage, obviously It has a number of glaring dramatic defects, but It certainly Is an entertaining burlesrpie and as an eye opener for the "common pecpul" who know "hut little of the way In which political nominations are brought about, by intricate maneuvers much like those on a chess-board H Is cer tainly Instructive. In "Mr. Crewe's Career" Marion Fairfax, the dramatist, has undoubted ly written something which will np penl to a large class of theater-goers. For that reason Its financial, If not Its artistic success is already assured and we predict for It a long run. To say of It that It can boast not one dull moment, would be to put the situation mildly. It Is like a three-ring circus n large part of the time. Especially Is tills the case In the third nnd last art, which is set In the ante-room to the state convention hall, from which place the generals who are the pjiwus of th! octopus-like railroad manlplate the delegates like manikins. The plot of the play is much the same as that of the novel, "only none so." The leading role, that of An--ten Vane, Is played by William l.ew ers, who showed some ncrvouMvss during the early part of the evening atd for that reason missed some of his cues, but Who later succeeded ex cellently in carrying his audience tri umphantly along with him whenever he appeared on the stage. Ansb 11 Vane Is one kind of a buries, ue --a burlesque on goodness. He is all that is good and noble. In direct contrast to him is Mr. I'llnf. president of the great railroad, an exaggerated bur lesque on badness. Hetwe.-n these two extremes there are any number of v.irbtles. ("if tluse the p.st two ex amples of skilful character-drawing came with Adam Hunt, the railroad's candidate for governor, as empty headed a jackass as was ever depicted on the Ma go, uproariously funny, but quite to think of n .1 possible candi date for even a jack-straws team, nnd with Humphrey Crewe, the title role, a neif-st.vb-d reformer but really a man with nothing but his own person al alms and ambitions in view' at heart. Austen Vane has just won an Im portant rase for a farmer against the railroad when the play opens. For that reason the president of the latter sees how necessary it is that the young man be got und; r his thurrth. So that he will not accept more c.isis against the road, he n nds young Austen an 'annual pass on the road, hoping to buy him off and lc als'i s-nds Au" 1 ten' father, the road's head counsel, i to him with promise of future posi tions In the road's employ. All these i offers are Indignantly refused by the "high-browed" young man, who Ik ac claimed at the end of the act by a I crowd of farmers as their m ut candi date for the governor. I The peeoud R''t Was one of political plotting and of iove-ma king. It han ! pens some months later. In the mean i time Austen has fallen In hue with I the railroad president's daughter, 'Victoria Flint. So hns The Honorable i Humphrey ('n wc a role ptaed to I perfection by Fritz Williams. Mr. Wil li liams' love-scene with Molly Pearson. ,;who pbiyid Victoria, was ex dingle 'j fenny. His description to le-r of )ds I ! idea of an Ideal wit'., was ,riei" and his proposal while holding hi watch y. in his hand ami counting the mln .jiiles lie bad to span, was uproarious., 'jThe way he took his refusal was t x j I -jcal of his kind of man.

The cheers tvliieli follow show pointedly that Ihe rjele gater are with htm, find tbsl Ihe rail road's candidate, Hunt, will lie dawned In the whirlpool to follow The despair of the elder Vane Is p Irenie. He threatens his son that he will go on the finer and publicly dis own him If he is selected. Austen realizes the position he has put his fa ther 111 nnd consequently orders Ills name withdrawn, and the end comes quickly and unexpectedly. Hunt, the Impossible, gets the nomltintlon. and Austen gets Victoria anparenlly from Ihe embraces which follow, and Ihe Vnnes. father stul con. resolve to he worthv of Ihir profession from then en.

As to football night lie said he did not think any were needed then as ll wa.s almost like a pink ten. He could not remember ever linking for any on foot ball night. Chief Cmvlcs on being questioned slated that ne had sent n squad I i.i tlie llypoi'lun for inside duty on tlie night, of the last football game as he had done at other theaters. After Mr. Khlredge had been ex cused Sergeant Imhcrty wa.s called. He testitlcl to watching to see wheth er or nut. lifllcer Holllnger patrolled certain part of his .bent rm cerialn night litis month. Iln testllb-d that the first, night he had watched wa.s liecoinber II, which was a wet night, and Ihal night he had taken his nla- tion In Crown sti t, which Is on Holl!nger',u heal. lie. said lie first saw Holllnger that night at 11:20 at that corner (he dud gone on duty there at li o'clock, which wa.s Holllnger's start lug lime), and did not see him again unill II; 1 2 In lite morning. He swore lie had not pn.s.sed that way but those two times between ll in the evening and it;. in In the morning. The next night he said he took his stand In York street, between Clin pel and tleorge, nnd that he failed to pass that way between 9 und 12, and that between 1 nnd SiHO he failed to show up In York street from Chapel to Crown or Chapel between High and York, Kegatdlng Iieeember 1?. he said he watched in forge between 9 nnd 3:?.0 and did not see him until 3.10. Then lie saw him In conversation with Stan ford and he was on Stanford's beat His testimony regarding December :, was that he saw Holllnger and Stan ford talk together for a period of IS minutes. Sergeant poherty explained what Hie beat was which Holllnger hail, and alo added that during the period III question he had two beats to c.tre for, being hIso assigned to what Is known as the college heat. When asked his opinion as to how many times he thought a man should cover kis beat he said he thought nt least once on each report, which would be about three tinus. When asked by whose order he had kept watch on lloilliigcr he said by orders of the chief. Sergeant Tighe followed. Me testi fied only to the night of December 15 when he sai l he was ordered to assist lioherty In the work. He was In plain clothes ns was Doherty. He took up his station that night about fl:13 In Crown street near High and was there until 12:2il Holllnger came through College street, crossing crown he said about n o'clock and he saw him no more until 4:?0 In the morning Me said he had not seen him patrol Col lege or York streets or fieorge street or Chapel and High. Commissioner Smith queried as to the reason that Chief Cowles had as signed tie sergennts to this watch duty. Tim chief explained thnt he had received Information t'ml Holllnger was not properly patrolling Ids beat and was going on the statre of the Hy perion theater. He assigned Sergeant Doherty to watch and see If he could Und Holllnger koIiir onto the stage but Ihe sergennt after trying several nights reported thnt he could not see without being seen but Hint he had not seen Hollnger op certain portions of his heat In general. The chief nlso e. plained Hint Holllnger ndmlted before the, efficiency committee that he had been on the stage of ttff theater on twfl occasions, so these hnd ben Included In the charges. No evidence ns to these occasions was Introduced before the board. Patrolman Holllnger was then called to the stand In his own defense. He Admitted at the start that he went onto the stage of the Hyperion on the night of December 11 He said he hnd seen n crowd of students banging shout Hie singe entrance, hnd gone and driven them away and that lie then went In to see what time the piny would hn over. It wns the opening night of Kihlie Toy. He admitted he might hnve been In the theater about ten minutes. e said lie stood by the. nwltclibonrd its the sit Itchhoard opera tor was the only person there he knew and he waited for him to nsk him the question he wanted to nsft, p.egnrdlng December I" he absolutely denied the charge, staling thi't the theater had a dark night IJiHt night. There was no play on and the plnce was locked up. He said also that It was thnt night be was before the efficiency committee re garding the charges. He then went on to explain why he had not patrolled Ills beat so o'ften ns might be expected on the other nights named, lie said In the llrst place that be had two heats to cover, lie told of bow he wcnl around in the rear of stores along his beat right along and patrolled very carefully. On December K'. he said he came lit to report nt and went out on three successive patrol wsgon calls so that It whs 1:110 before he started out again. Then he had trouble witli students In the center, followed them and finally brought two Into the sta tion so that It was about 2:30 before be got onto his beat which made It Impossible to cover nil of it before report time again thnt night. On the other days he testified that h covered his beat as well as n' number of simi lar Interruptions gave hlin time to do so. Ho explained the conversation with Stanford by declaring that Stan ford lit'd asked hltu fur Information and ndvloe regarding a case he had beford him. Stanford Is a supernum erary and wanted the advice of an older man. He did not think, how ever, that the talk had been so long as had been testified to. Regarding the testimony nf Ser geant Tighe, Holllnger differed front the sergeant. Sergeant Tighe testified to meeting Holllnger and talking with him. bul certain questions whbdi I nl -linger asked him If he did not say at that time which pertained to Hollln ger's work Sergeant Tighe declared he had not said to the best of Ills rec ollection, Holllnger also asked the seriMHtit if he had not been standing behind a tree in citizen clothes In Crown street when lie came along, bnl the sergeant denied that story.
