EUlfi GRIFFIH DEAD; VfU-KIMWH Oil STACE (Ceutinmi from frtt He.) Ellis avenue. Miss Griffin died a Christian. Emma Griffin was born in Louisville, Ky., and was 44 years of age. She made her first appearance on the stage with her sister at Kohl and Middleton's Museum, Chicago, when they were girls. Their first appearance as regular professionals was with John W. Isham's original octoroon company, headed by Fred J. Piper and Madam Flower. When they had gained fame with the octoroons they entered into vaudeville and remained in that field and made money. When Mabel Griffin was taken ill at Youngstown, O., eleven weeks ago and had to return home ill, Emma took Margie Lorraine as a partner and opened at the Star Theatre, Pittsburgh, ten weeks ago, but broke down and returned home ill. Both sisters were bedridden in separate rooms during a period in which a benefit was given for them at the States Theatre of special pictures by Theda Bara. No performers appeared and the occasion marked the first theatrical "movie" benefit in history. Elizabeth Hart and Cassie Burch Slaughter conducted the benefit Miss Griffin was well educated, having been a student of the State University of Louisville. As an actress she was a comedienne of the May Irwin type and was a clever mirth provoker despite her avoirdupois. As an orator she had recognized ability, recently demonstrated in politics as a suffragette. The stand she took on behalf of the rights of performers against managers was well known. The deceased was a charitable woman and always interested in the welfare of her profession. Miss Griffin was the oldest child of Henry Griffin, deceased, and Blandina Duncan. The funeral was held Tuesday, September 3, and was largely attended. WESTERN DRAMA AT LAFAYETTE NEXT WEEK In making the assertion that Lafayette Theatre patrons will find an unusual amount of enjoyment in "Arl-Bona," next week play at the Harlem house, it la baaed on a conviction formed after looking back a few years to the time when the Crescent Theatre held full sway in New York's most thickly populated Colored section. About the time the people were be coming tired of the acts, most of them put together over night, the late Marlon Brooks arrived from the Wi with a number of little playlets which for the main part were made up of comedy but which carried a strong western touch that found instant favor with the crowds that packed the little theatre afternoon and evening. The deeire for this kind of play has been met by the management of the Lafayette, and a four-act drama of a higher standard has been secured in "Arizona," a play which added to the popularity of Augustus Thomas and stamped him one of the foremost playwrights ever developed in this country, The critics and the public have been one in the opinion that "Arizona" is oae of the best dramatic successes seen on the American stage in a generation, and this is as it should be, as Mr. Thomas has been notably realistic in his treatment of story and detail. SING LATEST WAR SONG WITH SUCCESS Two of the best known colored bands In the country are featuring "When the Tanks Tank the Germ Out of German" with great success. The biggest hit made this summer by any band in the East is accredited to the Right Quintet, James E. Llghtfoot, Manager, which is at Price's Hotel, Pleasure Bay, Long Branch, N. X, and known as the Wilson Entertainers. This aggregation has been a big sensation on the Jersey coast. Members of the band are C. Tls- dale, William Loguen, James Thomas, Leonard Smith, James B. Llghtfoot, Charles Wilson and Felix Weir. The Bay State Quartet, composed of Clarence Bush, first tenor; Luther M Blake, second tenor; Emory B. Smith, first base and manager, and William C. Elklns, second bass, are delighting chose who go to Tapplns, Sheepeneaa Cay. PERSONNEL OF THE SMARTER SET COMPANY Among the members of this year's Smarter Set Company are S. Tutt ney, J.
