Mr. Hogan's opening selection was liked, and the second “went” fairly well, having a moving picture scene for the chorus. The “mugging” helped considerably, but Hogan must burnish up the finish especially.
Ernest Hogan in his vaudeville reappearance is singing and imitating. It may have been the position on the bill this week (next to last) which injured his reception, but the final number, something about “Abe Lincoln's Day,” with imitations, was the more probable reason. This is dragged out too long, and the song itself, a sort of semi-patriotic effort, does not exhilarate.
