The Man Who Won the Pool

There are moments in which Mr. Hilliard himself is very stiff and a bit stilted in his portrayal of the English serving man, but in the final passages, of dramatic intensity e realizes to the fullest the demands of the skillfully brought about situation.
He managed it to the complete satisfaction of the Union Square audience this week, however, as attested by the applause at the final curtain.
No better staged and handled vaudeville sketch has been shown this season. The cast is nicely balanced and the setting, general atmosphere and detailed exposition show a careful attention to accuracy and propriety that might as well serve as example to others.
