Mr. Lawlor and his daughters make their first appearance in “one” in straight street dress. This part of their offering occupies but a minute or two, but it makes a poor forerunner for the excellent material that follows.
Mr. Lawlor's best work is in the second song, “Marianinna,” an effective number, sung by all three in character costume. In this conection it might be observed that the leader of the act should play character make-up for his one best bet. He is possessed of an agreeable voice, but his stage presence is not altogether attractive.
There was no question as to the favorite, gauged by the volume of applause.
