The Grand Rapids Democrat has the föllowirg to say concerning this company, whieh wil appear at the Opera House, in this city, Saturday evening: "Partners in Crime" was the aüraction at Redmond's opera house last i;ight. The play is a romantic comedy-drama in five acts, written by Mr. Edwin Hatford, who takes the leading role. It is a play of considerable power and abounds in stirring situations and good dialogues. Paitioularly striking is the third act, which opens in the Italians' lodgings on the water front of New York. In this scène Mr. Hanford appears to good advantage as Vic. Hartley, in character irapersonations, which are adopted as a disguise to enable him to rescue his sister Dot, who has been stolen by the Italians and forced to earn money as a crossing sweeper. Mr. Hanford is a young actor of ability, and though he was suffering from a severe cold lact night, won the favor of the audience as the frequent applause demonstrated. During the performance he introduced several new and tking songs. Mr. Ed. Anderson was partioularly good as Moses Levi, the Jew, and by his new and witty payings produced much laughter. John Quinn, as Lofus Kero, a padrone, did well, as did Dean Roberts in a similar character. Miss Rose St Armour made an attractive Nellie Heartley, and Blanch Dayne gave a good interpretation of D jt. The other members of the compaoy sustained their parts well, thereby rendering Mr. Hanford good Bupport. The play will be repeated at the matinee this afternoon and this evening.
