Charles Walcott, Felts Morris, Edward Morgan, William Courtleigh, Frank Mills and John Findlay. The play is in five acts. After the run of this drama a number of evening performances of "The Princess and the But- terily" are underlined, this play having evidently not yet exhausted its popularity. Arthur Pinero has just scored tho suc- OBSH of his career as a playwright, if the advices from the other side a:re to be be- liaved. His coinudy "Trelawney of tho Wells" was recently produced ac the Court theater, London, and the critics of that oity hove waxed enthusiastic over it. So em'phatic indeed was the hit made by the piece that tha American rights are said to have already been secured by a prominent manager of this city, who win give it an early production here with a specially selected cast. It was confided to me that thlisrnanager is of the opinion that there is not the slightest doubt that the play will run out tho entire season. ^he play also proved to be a triumph in London for a,real, flesh and blood peer ol the realm, the Earl of Eoslyn, who is said to be tho first nobleman who ever adopted the stage as a profession. He is evidently destined, if the critics are correct in then estilmate of his abilities, to fill an important place in the theatrical Hfo of England. The experiment of a stock opera company at the Broadway theater has proved successful, so much so, in fact, that arrangements have already been made for several worts to follow "The Highway man" as soon as that very popular work shall have worn out its welcome in this city. Of course the piece will. not be shcilved then by any means, as, if gossip is to be believed, it is tho intention of the management of the Broadway to send al of their demonstrated successes out on the road, visiting only the large cities. By this plan the element of chancti will be re duced to a minimum. By the way, for the benefit of those per eons who may imagine thnt they are des lined to become great librettists it may be mentioned that any book of a comic opera containing DO horse play will be read by Manager ilacCormack, and it it holds cu' anything of promise it will stand a very good chance of being bought by him. It is :not his intention to confine himself to the output of the well known vrrit«rs. Everybody will bo on an equal footing and h« best librettos will be thu ones svhich he will use regardless of the authorship. His company, always a particularly good one, las been strengthened by the addition of Cumillo D'Arville, who is, take it all in nil, tho best prima Uonna in this country or a stock organization. Sie succeeds Hilda Clark, who, while she is an artiste if considerable ability, was not thought sufficiently good »s all actress to carry out ;ha several strong scenes in "'The Highwayman." As she is under contract, how- she will continue with the company. ciargesof plagiarism bad as much foundation in fact as this one, there would be vary little printers' ink wast«d on the subject of Che appropriation of others' ideas. If the play in question had not betn one of the most phenomenal successes of the last decade, too, it is not likely that these aspersions on Mr. Barrett's literary integrity would ever have been made. So far from "The Sign of the Cross" having been adapted or suggested by "Quo Yadis," if there were plagiarism on either side, which, of course, there was not.it must necessarily bavo been on the part of Sinkiewicz, for I saw and read the manuscript of '-The Sign of the Cross" long before the great religious novel was published, and, what is more, the play was produced with si;aree!y a single change from the original text. Mr. Barrett has not yet apparently considered it necessary to answer a charge which is so absurd as to afford its own refutation to those who are at all familiar with the history of his drama, but the accusers have become so persistent that his friends have communicated with him on the subject. He is now in Aus tralia and on his way back to England via San Francisco and New York, it is nor unlikely that he will give bis detractor^ the excoriation which they so richly deserve. The newspapers of this city take pleasure in referring to the "provincialism" and "gullibility" of the newspapers of other cities, especially with regard to matters theatrical. This is done in a commiserat- ,ng sort of fashion that is particularly exasperating, especially when it is known that there are no newspapers on the western hemisphere which are so easily imposed ugon a, those published in the metropolis of' the United States. Many stories are submitted which bear the impress of che fakir who is simply desirous of getting the name of his theater or star into print, and yet the city editor will accept them, probably without even going through the form •f investigating.- If, however, tho press agent happens to bfi shrewd enough to offer his "information" exclusively to one sheet, it is corttiin to be given great prominence. The corrections and modifications as well as the, denials in many cases which follow nerve to "make space" for several days. In no respect is the gullibility of tho BAG BALL. Sew Came For Indoo-ru M Well M Open Air. Bag ball is a nsw game freshly imported from England. It is adapted to the tastes of both old and young and may be played under cover or in the open air. The game is played with ttnnis balls and rackets and a receiving board. Fort?--five feet is suggested as a proper distance from the striking point to tho receiving board, but this is not arbitrary. The balls are to be 12 red and IS white lawn tennis ones, and the A Great Slaughter i SALE OF FINE _ ?| »4 WINTER SHOES nanst be closed out at one-third their value to make TOOTR for our large Purchase of Spring Goods.

Phelos. of Jantaxillfc Aaron H. \\oodhuirs surrender of tho ense of the old ^tarulard cheater, which rechristened the ilunhattan, was no stu'prise to the members of the theatrical colony in this city. This house, which is one of the best located in New York, has :oir many years been regarded witlx\ dis- trnst and misgiving by tbe profession. There- was a very general impression that it could not be made to pay no matter what the offering might be. That this s an absurdity was strikingly demonstrated by "Charley's Aunt," which did good business there for months. As if that were not enough toxlispose o;f the ridiculous "hoodoo" idea, William Glilletto came along a little later with his "Too Much Johnson." a farce which packsd the house for the greater portion of a season. There have been other successes at the Standard, but these are perhaps the two most notable. William A. Brady and Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., the men v^no have secured control of the house for a number of years, are two of tbe greatest "hustlers" in the show business, and it is dollars to doughnuts that they will make a go of their venture. Their firsirproduction will be a Xew England play by Lottie Blair Parker entitled "Vay Down East," which Brady has had on hand for some time. The house has been rechristened the Comedy, from which a pretty good idea of the policy to be pur «6ed may be obtained. If th.->y will put on good plays, they will find that the Stond- axd-ilanhattan-Coinedy theater will draw just as well as any other place of amusement of the same class in Xew York. And Incidentally it may-be mentioned that it Is the purpose of Messrs. Brady and Ziegfeld to keep it up to the high standard which it has occupied, with a couple of •light interruptions, for the last decade. Again the old accusation has come to the front that Wilson Barre« stole hi« pl»y i£ The Sign of the Cross" from'that marvelous novel "Quo Yadi*." If regard to so called "society" women have decided to adopt the stajje as a profession. Tbe full pedigree of these aspirants is usually given and a degree of notoriety Is liecured which would be obnoxious to any one with :tbe roost elementary ideas of reflnisinent, ,as. it doubtless is -to those who thus havd it thrust upon thoin. In some cases the announced "society" women are entitled to the designation, but in more it is a rank absurdity. But to get into tho prints here the bald unsupported claim is all that is necessary, just, as though, even if it were well founded, it could possibly afflict tha probability of success of the dramatic debutante. This wishywashy exploitation of every one connected remotely with the stage has become so tedious that many well known actors who huve earned their positions by ability and hnri work are cow having nothing but tns most perfunctory announcements of their comings and goings, made by their advance men. Legitimate publicity never did h».vt! a chance against unblushing notoriety, and that is about the situation at the prusont time. . Franklin Fyles, one of the most scholarly awd observant critics in this city or country, very appropriately observes that it seems rather & regrettable fact that Charles Coghlan should at this stage of his experience have been lured'in to speaking before an audience. His original explanation that- tho damage it did by destroying the illusion created by the-actor's art is so good, .'that,ho should never again allow himself to break tho rule he kept so long. If the Rimie rule could be impressed upon authors, there might be as much-improvement. But they do appear to make speeches or to bow, and it is in nine cases out of ten from the feeling that it would be discourteous not fb acknowledge the applause of tho audience. Sometimes the effect is discouniging, especially in the case of some women. Martha Morton, who is,.a tall woman, usually manages to appear comparatively at her ease and looks well. Mrs. JIac.lel.ino Lucfettc Ryley has ' been"an actress imd that is of undoubted assistance to ler. $hc is ('.frays self possessed and alert. Mrs. France?

One hat hci delivered two years ago at the American theater has never been forgotten >y the audience that heard him. Palmer i holds the record for having been the iiost fiightened man that has ever been sailed before un audience. Every person in he house when lie appeared was personal- y embnrrassetl at having caused him such •onfnsian. Clyde Fitch has not been be;ore u curtain for many years, and H. l>.
