Hut the rery ti'le Beethoven gate • ^e Heroic Symphony provokes question and there have been many endeavors t > explain it. Wagner tried less to ex plain its meaning than to explain H away. Chained to his one idea, he asserted that Beethoven's hero was not a military hero, but a young man of complete spiritual and physical endowment, who passed from mere brute delight in life and his strength through tragic suffering to a high spiritual satisfaction In love; that is to say, he asserted that Bethoven's hero was Parsifal or Siegfried. Now, this much of Wagner'* theory is true, that Beethoven would not worship a mere human butc/ier any more than he would worship a pork butcher as a hero. On the other hand, Beethoven's hero was undoubtedly a military hero, Napoleon Bonaparte. We know that the symphony was originally dedicated to Napoleon, that the dedication was altered when Napoleon (as Beethoven thought) turned traitor and became emperor; we know that when the news of his death came Beethoven casually remarked that he had already composed the music for that event. Of what parts, then, of Napoleon's career do the first and last two movements tell? These are questions which can never be answered; and, mere curiosity apart, it so happens that it matters little whether they are answered or not answered, so long as they are not answered altogether wrongly. For whatever events Beethoven might at any moment have in his mind he never tried to depict them, but only to communicate the emotion they aroused. He himself said as much. It is in the expression of human emotion he is supreme, and to feel aright the emotions of the' heroic symphony we need only have our minds clear of a story which Beethoven did not and could not have had in his mind. or Julian Ralph tells a good story of Kipling's pride.

There is a story told of a very eminent lawyer now no longer with us, who once, while endeavoring to dissuade a friend from going to law, was asked what he would himself consider sufficient ground for resorting to litigation. "My dear fellow," he replied, "I do not say that under no conceivable circumstances would I take proceedings against any one, but I do say that if this moment you deliberately upset my ink on the table, chucked my wife out of the window, threw that volume of reports at the bust of Dickens, 'made hay' with my furniture and finally tweaked my nose, I should, no doubt, use my best endeavors to kick you downstairs; but once rid of you, either by force or persuasion, no power on earth should induce me to bring an action against you."

During the past few months, the Baltimore and Ohio railroad has materially extended the runs of the passenger locomotives on through trains. Formerly engines were changed on an average every 100 or 150 miles. It was thought that the mountain grades of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad would prevent an extension of the runs. However, the experiment was made. It has proved successful and reduced the number of locomotives formerly required by twenty-four, which can be used in other branches of the service and save the purchase of more motive power. Under the new plan, locomotives are double crewed and make from 7,000 to 8,000 miles a month, as against 3.500 to 4.000 under the former method.

The penalty prescribed for a violation of this section is a fine of $100. Bona flde deals for players are not forbidden and experience shows that they are generally beneficial to the clubs and players involved. The pretended transfer of players from one club to another is clearly illegal. The formalities required by baseball law were complied with when Catcher Schrecongost was sent to Cleveland by the St. Louis club, but that player was loaned to the Cleveland club and when the St. Louis club needed him the string was pulled and back he came. This and similar evasions of the constitution of the National League by the magnates can not be defended. To accomplish their eelflsh purposes the club-owners falsify the records with bogus transfers of players and find pleasure in buncoing each other. According to report, Casey was loaned by the Washington club to the Brooklyn club until Aug. 1 with the understanding that if he were not returned on or before that date, his price would be $3,500. He was really the property of the Washington club until Aug. 1, and the games in which he took part prior to that day as a member of the Brooklyn team, were illegal under section 44 of the constitution. If such swapping of players is indulged in by one or two clubs, others will resort to it and in time the championship race will degenerate into a juggling contest, players being transferred from club to club at will. Public opinion is the best protection the game has from this and other evils. This swapping of players Is more prevalent since the syndicate era began, but it has been practiced more or less for years. It is high time that its spread be stopped. of Domont nnd Nop*. Manager McGraw, backed by the Baltimore press and public, forced the members of the syndicate which controls the Orioles, to live up to their promise not to run that team as a sideshow to their Brooklyn club. All the cards which Mr. Von Der Horst may issue and all the explanations which Mr. Hanlon may give, will not satisfy the public that the Demont-Nops-Jen- nings "trade" was not a departure from the policy which these gentlemen and their associates solemnly declared would be followed in the operation of their two clubs. Aside from the syndicate feature the "deal" was not so bad for Baltimore. Jennings' days as a ball player are not over and he has a large following In the Monumental City, where he made his reputation. Demont's habits are not what they should be and Nops is equally unreliable. Manager McGraw made his fight and won because a principle waa Involved. He had been promised by 'the owners of the club, which under his management has developed unexpected strength, not only that none of his players would be taken away from •him, but that his efforts to strengthen his team.would meet with their most cordial co-operation. He had engi- 'iieered a good deal with the Chicago club for Demont and declined to part with that player and protested against •being deprived of the services ot Nops, whom he considers, when in condition, the best left-handed pitcher of the period. With the press and public of Baltimore siding ,with the Orioles' manager, the syndicate did not dare to PITCHER DEMONT. carry out their purposes and the "trade" was declared off. The National League must rid itself of syndicate ball to retain the confidence of the patrons of the game. It Is unsports- manlike and breeds suspicion. The transfer of players between the St. Louis and Cleveland clubs, has caused comparatively little criticism throughout the country, and no concern in Cleveland because there is neither pride nor interest in the game in that city. Conditions are different in Baltimore. The success of the Orioles has earned them a larger and more loyal home following than the Hanlou- Jtes had in 1897 or 1898. Th}s revival of interest would have been followed by a return to the era pf Indifference, which resulted in the RaUimore- BrooUlyn deal, had the syndicate succeeded }n switching pjayers between -the teams, McGraw'8 argumejUs were, It 18 said, acomnanied by tfcrea,ts ot rein. §afujra»e« iason would act In conceit with him.' Hanlon and his associates could not afford to strengthen the Brooklyn cittb at any such cost to their Baltimore plant and the scheme was sidetracked. McGraw and Robinson were the only parties to the transaction who came out of it with credit. Violation ot Knlfs. Col. Rogers very innocently inquired after the game if the coaching rules could be enforced. 'S'prisefl at you, colonel, s'prlsed nt you. Don't you know all the rules passed by the league calculated to add to the decorum and decency of the game are more honored In the breach than the observance? The umpires know the rules, but how many of them would hold their positions if they were to enforce them? In every inning yesterday Tucker violated both the letter and the spirit of the rule governing coaching and yet neither Gaffney nor Latham appeared to notice it. And for that matter It must have escaped Capt. Cooley's attention, for he did not make a single protest. The Very idea of Col. Rogers seriously thinking that any of the league rules were meant to be enforced Is amoosln'. By and by the colonel will try to persuade himself to believe that the magnates are on the level with each other.—Philadelphia In- duirer. I.otir»vine's M. .T, Kelloy. M. .1.

He played first base for that team the following season. He was with the Newport, R. I., club of the New England league in 1897 and a part of the season of 1898, which he finished with the Ottawa club of the Eastern League. The latter city lost its franchise and Manager Barnie secured Kelley for his Hartford, Conn., team for 1899.» His release was recently purchased by the Louisville management. Kelloy has become a great favorite with the Falls City fans. His batting has been timely and consistent and his fielding first- class. In the opinion of experts he Is the best first baseman the Louisville club has had since Harry Taylor played that position for the Colonels. He is '23 years old. An Kxclllnir Finish. The score stood 'A to 2 In favor of the Senators when the Bostons went In for their last inning. Long was first at bat and slammed the ball over the left field fence, but it was unfortunately a foul. He then filed to O'Brien. The ball then just grazed Collins' uniform, and he was allowed his base, Duffy got his base on balls, and Stahl was squarely hit by a pitched ball, filling the bases. The stands were full of hope when Lowe came to the bat, but hope turned to despair as ho tyled to drive the ball over McGann, and only succeeded in fouling directly into that individual's hands. Bergen, who had twice struck out, now came up, and with two strikes on him the chances were blue, Indeed. Atherton, the Washington third baseman, ran to third to hold Collins there for some reason or other, and in doing so left his position vacant. Weyhing pitched and th'e ball was driven right through the hole left by Atherton, and Collins and Duffy came running over the rub- her with the tying and winning runs, while . many of the rooters followed Bergen and patted him on the back as he strove to reach the dressing-room. — Boston Herald. t'ii Tombstone. The grave of William A. Hulbert, in Gracehmd cemetery, says a Chicago paper, Is perhaps the only one in the world which is marked with a tombstone in the shape of a baseball. Mr. Hulbert was the president of the old National League, and when be died in 1882 some of his old associates set about to show their love and respect for him, and the result was the monument in Graceland. The baseball is made of red granite, about twenty inches in diameter, showing the seams as they appear upon one of the balls used in regulation games. Across the top appears in raised letters: "W. A. Hulbert, President National League, P. B. B. C., 1876, 1882." On one side appears the names of four clubs in the league — Boston, Providence, Worcester, Troy — and on the other those of the other four— Chicago, Cleveland, Buffalo, Detroit. Also there is a headstone of white marble, upon which appears the name, together with the date of birth. Oct. 23, 1832, and the date Of death, April 10, 1882.

Despite Mr Daly's many shortcomings, he was a man who held the stage in too great respect even to make it a matter of mere business speculation. His reckless expenditures of money in matters of art showed that he had a mind far above the box office and doorkeeper standard. His accumulation of a library worth several hundred thousand dollars is sufficient evidence of his aesthetic and artistic interest In the theater. For several years past, however, the trend of the times had been directly away from tha classic walls of his playhouse, and to save himself from bankruptcy he was obliged to accept the Inevitable and become almost exclusively a producer of melodrama and musical comedy, two forms of theatrl cal endeavor which he had always dabbled in ever since his embarkation on the sea of management over 30 years ago. In the season just ended, despite his elaborate production of "The Merchant of, Venice" and "Madame Sans Gene," his only financial successes were "The Runaway Girl," performed by his musical stock company, and "The Great Ruby," presented by his famous dramatic troupe. During the past ten years Marie Walnwright has developed, oddly enough, from an actress of classic rolea to an exponent of sensational and commonplace melodrama. Last season she starred in "Shall We Forgive Her," and for the coming year she Is planning a tour in that or some similar play. Time was when we looked to Miss Wainwrlght as a coming actress, but It now -seems Impossible that she can ever arrive at any desirable goal, despite the twenty years of her experience on the American stage. She made her debut In 1887 at Booth's theater, New York, as one of the six Juliets in George Rlgnold's famous benefit performance. After a tour of six months In Rlgnold'e company, she went to Boston, and made her debut In that city as the Princess Katherlne In "King Henry V." In 1878 she became a member of the stock company at the Boston Museum." "When I was negotiating with Mr. Field," said Miss Waln- wright once, "I asked him what I should play, and he said, 'a varied lln« of parts.' In my ignorance I did not know what this phrase might be made to cover, but I was happy because I was engaged as 'juvenile lady."' Hilda Clarke is another beautiful girl who has recently made her mark in the comic opera world. She comes from Kansas City, and after completing her musical studies abroad was selected some four years ago to play a small part In "The Princess Bonnie," a short- lived comic opera In which Frank Daniels made merry In the leading role. A short time as prlma donna with the Bostonlana was followed by her engagement two seasons ago as leading soprano singer In "The Highwayman," a musical piece with which De Koven and Smith hopelessly hoped to duplicate the extraordinary success they had made with their "Robin Hood," This season she appeared as La Pastorella in "The Bride Elect," the part created last year by Nella Bergen." Although it is now almost twenty- 3ve years since Modjeska first present- HELENA MODJESKA. ed herself as a candidate for public favor before an American audience, neither her prestige nor her ability shows any diminishing effect of time's dread power. On the contrary she seems to grow ! .n personal charm and In dramatic ability. She has never been a great actress, but (she has always stood In the front rank of those players who, aided by temperament and personality, know how to make the most of their gifts. The poetic effect of Modjeska's acting is still more than potent; Jt Is all-convincing and absorbing, and no one Interested In the literary drama can regret one hour }ie has spent woflw the spell of her art, Is one of the many Americans who prefer to live in London, but before going td the British metropolis was Well known to the stage people of Boston and other cities. She was a Mflrttbeif of the Boston Museum stock company for a time, and it was while there, we believe, that she married George R. Parks, the unfortunate actor who met with a violent death some fifteen years ago. Miss Robins' first professional appearance in England appears to havd been made in 1889, when she was seen at the Opera Comidiie in London as Mrs. Errol In "The Real Little Lord Fauntlet-oy." Her next part, apparently, was Alice Varney in "Forget-M«Not," at the same theater. Her first original role in London was Grace Hargrove, in a play by Frankfort MoOre, appropriately called "Forgotten." Shortly after she attracted attention by her acting of Martha Bernick Itt Ibsen's "The Pillars of Society," and since then her dramatic reputation has been chiefly based upon her acting ol the Norwegian dramatist's heroines. In addition to Martha Bernick she has appeared as Mrs. Linden in "A Doll'a House," Hilda in the "Master Builder," Rebecca West In "Rosmersholtn," Ag* nes in "Brand," Asia In "Little Byolf," and Ella Rentheim In "John Gabrie' Borkman." If Anna Held continues to* visit us ' every year there is hope that she may in time develop Into a full-fledged American. At present, however, she is French of the French and Is liked Immensely by our American play-goora ANNA HELD. solely for that reason. There Is prospect of an American tour for her next season. Clement Scott has taken the stand in the Bernhardt-Hamlet controversy that Bernhardt's conception of the melancholy Dane is one of the most exquisite he ever saw. Ho points out that this is largely due to the magnificent Ideas she has, such as crossing herself before she follows the ghost, the speaking of the speech to the players on the miniature stage making Hamlet for a moment an actor addressing his audience;,,the feeling of his father's picture on the walls when, the ghost has gone and the materialism comes again; the effect of the poison in Hamlet's veins when his hand is scratched In the duel with Laertes; the kissing of the dead mother's hair; all said to be new points never shown before. It stamps the whole thing imaginative, electrical and poetical. Ellen Terry Is said to have "achieved her first stage distinction by screaming." In a play having the outlandish title of "Altar Eel" uhe had to take a snake around her neck and scream, and so realistic was her simulated horror at the situation that her scream brought down the house. Clement Scott, the English critic, writes thus extravagantly of Henry Irvlng's "Robespierre": "I have been a play-goer, man and boy, for over fifty years, and I say never have I seen on any stage in this world anything to equal this vivid, pulsating, astonishing and wonderful last act—never, never!" The family of Emlle Angler has .recently complained to the directors ot the Comedie Franchise that that dramatist's plays are too infrequently acted. Florence Warden, the novelist, has written a play called "The Guinea Pigs." It is In four acts and Its most exciting scenes are laid in a gambling hell.
