Play Founded On Winston
Churchill's Novel Presented
for the First Time.
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
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

i time Austen has fallen In hue with

tli at he ever had. lie said ho asked
for them one prmu, concert nlgnt,
but failed to get them, and the stud
ents hud hired fuipernumi railes. 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
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
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.
Holllnger insisted on It in his testi
mony, however, and claimed that h
