"The Wicklow Postman," an rish melodrama which the actor and author, Mark Price, has written or Mr. Eugene O'Rourke, is a slight, if not a radical departure from the conventional Irish play; it ignores English soldiers and Irish rags. The famous blackthorn does not hold at bay a posse of pólice, nor does it demolish an English regiment. That blot upon the Irish race, the ever ready informeris conspicuous by his absence, he has done yeoman service in the past, but he can be spared from the pages of an Irish story of to-day. Irish dramatists have ignored a very active element in Ireland, namely the ScotchIrish. Mr. Price, realizing their importance and power, brings them forcibly to the front in direct contact with the native Irish. Industry and cunning at war with wit and reckless generosity; the closed fist against the open hand. With such a theme character sketching becomes a sityand varíous types are presented for our consideration. Supported by a compaiy who can act and sing, with a new scenic outfit, we have no hesitation in recording the fact that Mr. Eugene O'Rourke will be a welcome "Postman," when he visits our city on Tuesday evening, Nov. 14, and appears at the Grand Opera house.
