at Harper's theatre tonight by one of
the strongest combinations w hich lias
left New York this season.
O'Dowd's Neighbors"1 is the title of
the plav promised, and from the
large number of musical selections
his kit has been named as operatic
farce comedy. For the usual farce
comedy reasons the name of the au
thor of the sketch is not given, al
though it contains much more of a
storv and plot than the usual one
which is deemed necessary only to
carrv the story. However, the main
purpose of the farce is to excite
laughter. Mark Murphy, the lead
ing comedian of the organization,
will be remembered by local theatre
goers as the Murphy of Murray A
Murphv, who made such a distinct
hit in -Our Irish lsitors." Sam J.
Rvan is playing his original part of
