Tne Elsinore theater today, March
t, with a cast of prominent play
ers, among whom are several who
hare been ; brought : from New
CVorlf "Tor the - production. The
play is from the pen of that most
prolific dramatist, Willard Mack,
whose 'Tiger JtoseV and , other
works have brought him into the
front-, rank; of American play
wrights. In the piece Mr. Mack
!1i on iAulnr f
that flotsam and Jetsam with
which the underworld of every
tig city Is filled. -He loves and is
loved by a rich society girl, far
above his station in life and who
knows nothing of the bootlegging
schemes Id which he Is engaged.
Mr. Mack draws, a picture of the
underworld with Its bootleggers,
Its' crooks, ( habitues of cabarets
and other characters that is in
tensely f ascmatlng. He has the
gift of presenting such 'scenes and
characters in a most vivid man
tier. They are true to life. He
has seen them and pictures them
just as they; appeared to him in
these surroundings. There is a
murder committed. The young
man is : tried; convicted of ' the
crime and condemned to the-gallows.
He faces his fate with lock
ed lips, revealing the secret of his
birth to none. Therein lives the
mystery which involves prominent
characters, j He Is reprieved by
the govern o- of the st&to almost
at the last hour and gryen a long
prison sentence. Mr. -'Mack, In
telling his story, resorts 'to the
motion picture method of tnoying
backward to tell what has happen
ed. In these acts the motive for
the murder Is explained in a most
dramatic climax. The art of the
dramatist in the construction of
the play takes the latter out of
the realm of the ordinary crook
