before tho curtain nt the close of the strong
scene in Glory's apartments.
Mr. Kolker la a robust young actor of pleasing
pretence and did splendid work as John Storm,
the role originated by Kdward Morgan. Tha part
is a strong one and affords much opportunity
for real acting, and lut night's John Storm
fully realized the possibilities of the role. In
his scenes with Glory in the second and third
acts Ids work a particularly effective. The
gnat climax in Glory's apartments in the third
net was well brought and throughout the burn.',
both Mr. Kolker' and Mlu Vane's efforts were
particularly forcible, the former' eyea gleaming
nnd his voice trembling with all the fenor of
the frantic priest, goaded to desperation by
slander and persecution, while as Glory, M'is
Vane spiritedly acted the port of the woman
trying to defend herself by womanly arildee
and femalo strategy, and miking him who
