The Chicago Herald, in speaking of Raymond's play, For CongresB, saya: A large and enthusiastic audience greeted Mr. John T Kaymond at Hooley's. His play "For Congress," while called new, is only new because ït is so very much newer than " Colonel Sellers" that the public long for any change. The piece was plnyed hcre last year, but ït has since been rounded out and perfectod, and it must be admitted that now, in the hands of Kaymond, it is in two acts at least, the most delicious bit of political satire seen on the stage in many a day . Florence's General Gilfiory is not even a suggestion of the possibilities in the burlesquing of political methode. General Josiah Limber is a typical political worker of the semi-rural type. He has just euough of the suggestion of hay seeu aoout mm to lurmsü larce lor tne ruralists, but beland that be bas tbe training of a metropolitan worker. Tbere can be notlung more laughable than the way liaymond, ;is General Limber, seizes upon his innocent but wealthy yi( tim and cajoles bim into a Congressioual candidacy, and tben secures his nomination in the convention. 'I beie were scores of pohticians present last night and all screamed with laughter at the happy reproduction of well-known preliminaries and scènes. The way the general got his strikers in a private room and instructcd them how to bring a bout the nomination of Mr. Wooley, " the people's fnend, " in the convention drew howb of laughter f rom a score of genuino ward workers in the parquette Electricity in Franklin's time was a wonder. Now we make light of it. "The Ivy Leaf" is a typical Irigh drama. lts story of a betrothal by tho edict of a dying father, and well nigh thwarted by the machinations of a 1 ous and designing villain, who is at last overthrown with the aid of a light-hearted, fun-loving and shrewd Irish lad, is told in chaste language, olearly and well, with considerable attractive embellishment in incident and soenery. The interest never flags but grows gradaally and legitimately in iutensity to the final denouement in the fifth act,when the opportune arrival of tbe light-hearted Irish lad puta an end to an uxecution which bas been ordered for the hero and lover, falsely acoused by the villain of a crime. The novelty is chieHy in seeuic effects and an absence of boisterous element which has come to be regarded as a necessary adjunct to the Irish drama.
