' , If the plav ceases to move as drama ocaslonally it Is because the playwright has been so deeply preoccupied In shed- ding a light on tho utversal nnd time- less qualities In Lincoln's soul. Lincoln himself seems to be a bit of those qualities, at the beginning of the play, though It Is doubtful if any great persons ure quite so aware before th vent of their tasting prominence in hls- - t0Thcre Is t.ic natural drawback In this play that there Is no concentrated oppo- sition to the chief figure In some one person, essential In arousing the fight- ing spirit of an audience and interest- ing It In a drama. Mr. Drinkwater has sought to overcome this weakness In- herent in his material by personifying tho crafty, Intriguing 'opposition In Hook, but he Is at best a poor villain. But despite this dcfi.:l Mr. Drinkwater has used material so well' that al- though It is mainly very familiar he has shown himself endowed with a splendid historical Imagination, and he has done u.i the tribute of showing us a fice from the ordinary stago \hokum.\ McGlynn PlnjH nnle Well.

Kitty Gordon brought beauty, which sometimes Isn't always ovorpowcrlngly present In vaudeville back to the two n day at tho Palaco ycBtcrday, whero she escaped from two years' thralldom to the films. In a series of attractlvo costumes designed nnd executed by Baron dn Meyer tho English actress en- gaged In a cycle of songs In which she seemed to tnke delight onco moro In freeing her voice from silence, which stnmped her performance as decidedly femlntno. Tho audience seemed to re- flect her plrnsuro. Besides Lester Sheehnn, Kinney and Corlnne, Clarenco Senna and Joseph Leo, whom tho etatuesquo beauty hnd assisting her In fongs nnd dances, Miss Gordon had as a valuable aide de camp her own daughter, Vern Bcrrsford, a young miss now In tho Initial process of feeling at home on the stng.. In voice, manner and person Miss Beresford proved her right to take after her mother. In addition to presenting this head- line act Miss Gordon gave further of her bounty In the form of a burlesque of the other acts on the bill, In which she appeared with her daughter and Jack Wilson, who also appeared nt an- other point In the programme with Iho assistance of .Griffith and James In\ on act called \The Surprise,\ nnd then plied nnother surprise on It In this Impromptu picnic nt the exensc of the other num- bers. Much of the good natured trav- esty was amusing and even Improved on some of the acts. The rest of a highly Interesting stretch of talent was scattered through Anna Whcaton and Harry Carroll, who exuded It the piano and their vocal chords while marking time for approaching engagements In musical comedy; \Flashes a revue of fun and fashions, with Doc Baker, Polly WAIk-s- r nnd Hi'd and Jack Pearson, In which It was shown that even a high class periodical llko Vnitifj Fair can't help but influence vaudeville; the Ilnmsdells nnd Deyo In danro novelties El Benrtel nnd Flo Burt In \Waiting for Her\; Ber Bernle and Charlie Chaplin, who 'rocked the boat and the house In \A Day of Pleas- ure.\ Pat Itooncy nnd Marlon Bent contin- ued for a Becond week to give patrons of the Hlverslde more than a mere whlfl' of pleasure with \Itlngs of Smoke.\ Other high lights of an entertaining va- riety were the Six Mosclnls In dancing novelties nnd acrobatic stunts; Wish Wynne, the English comedienne.

There is a daring originality in the way its plot is worked out that is-- unique in cbntemporary fiction ...
