BYK TIIK HY1
Henry Lahouchero comes nearest among
Englishmen of whom wo know to our Amors
lean Idea of things. Itnynlty has no divinity
tlint lin Is hound to grovel hcfnro In lillnil, tin
quostlonlng worship. Aristocracy has no
mortgage on Ms soul. He is n man with tho
full dignity of iiinnliooit. In Mi imper, Lon
don Truth, ho derides tho suobliery of tho
aristocrats mid rides hi ful! tilt against thy
demands of tht pu'iii ami her cxchid-ofniu-lly.
Ho Is with tho burdened nmun against
tho pamR'ml classo, hut ho Is not a ileum
goguo. Asa member of parliament, n rich
limn mid tho owner of a powerful paper ho
doesn't have to lie. Ho Is an ally of Glad
stone, and n friend of homo rule. And tho
sharp digs ho gives royalty and Its pretensions
why, it Is enough to inuko an Amciicun
throw up his hat for tho fellow. His iiuduci
ty is delicious, for in tholsittnmof our Amer
ican hearts fsu secret griidgcngalust the snnh
lilsh Insolence of tho Englishman whotypllles
to us tho focinl system of his countiy. In tho
Forum for January Mr Lahnuchero has an
article reviewing tho political situation In
England, and he concludes that that country
Is drifting steadily towards democracy. He
handles the subject without gloves. Hero Is
an extract thnt might have havo been written
by an American hmi :
IajiiI Salisbury Is an aristocrat to tho back
Imjiio. Ho regards tho IIoiuu of Commons as
n necessary evil Among his lieutenants
there is no man whom oven flattery could call
a statesman. Ono or two of them are fairly
ablo administrators, but most of them nro
aristocrats who would find it dllllcult to earn
n living, If without prestige or protection thoy
were to endeavor to maintain themselves lis
clerks In a commercial establishment. Thoso
flies In amber havo all tho prejudices of their
Tory predooessnrs, but they are greedy and
needy. Thoy thoroughly appreciatotho value
of tho spoils of olllco; nnd there Is no baseness
that they would not commit, no principle that
they would not recant, no iKillcy that they
would not adopt, In order to retain their hold
on these spoils. As for tho Torj ruck in l'nr
Hnnient, they havo prejudices but they havo
no opinion. A more contemptible set of
men It would bo dllllcult to conceive. They
seldom either take iwrt in debates, or listen
to discussions; they hang alKiut tho library,
In tho tea room, and in tho smoking room of
St. Stephen's. When n division Is olout to
take place thoy crowd Into tho House, and
they aro directed by their whips to tho gov
ernment lobby, Into which they Hock with the
docility and stupidity of sheep.
A pretty pleturo of tho great nnd wlso Eng
lish parliament, Isn't itf Wo havo heard n
great deal of slush in thin country about tho
Influenco of women In English politics of re
cent years, particularly of ono or two Ameri
can women who had married Englishmen.
We have had moro or less incoherent accounts
of tho Prlmroso League, hut wo havo seen tho
thing ittelf only through u mist of senti
mental gush or a slobber of fulsomo flattery.
Mr. Lahouchero lots us ieep at this band of
snobs through tho eyes of an Englishman.
This is his account of tho Institution: Tho
conception of the Prlmroso Leaguo was a
veritablo stroko of genius. This association
consists of "knights" and "dames," tho former
playing a subordinate part to tho latter. In
almost every town or district throughout tho
kingdom there is n "habitation," as It is call
ed, of tho league, and Its headquarters aro In
London. Tho "grand council" consists of
duchesses, countesses, nnd such like. During
tho season they glvo receptions to which tho
"ruling councilors" of each provincial habi
tation aro invited. These ruling councilors
nro moro or less great ladles in their own lo
cality, and each ono on her return homo In
vites tho leaguers of her Imbibition to fetes.
Thus each member finds herself recognized by
some ono whom she regards as her social su
perior. Tho shopkeeper's wife is brought In
to social contact with tho wifo of an owner of
a villa, tho wifo of an owner of a villa with
tho squire's wifo, tho squire's wifo with tho
wifo of tho local magnates, and tho wifo of
tho local magnate with tho leader of fashion
in London. In order to capture electors, the
habitations glvo entertainment, to which tho
poorer classes of high and low degree aro in
vited; nnd tho dames, like tho apostles of old,
go into tho highways and byways to bid men
and women to their feasts. At these enter
tnlment, refreshments are provided at far
below their real cost, tho youths of tho aris
tocracy sing comio songs, ami tho daughters
dance and play on tho Imiiijo. Selfsresiectlng
persons In America may wonder at tho effect
of all this tomfoolery; to understand it tlwy
must have resided in England suillclently
long to have realized the ingrained snobbery
of so many English men and English women.
The CouniKH Is enabled to make iU patrons
another handsome offer for tho yeurlMK). Iiy
a special arrangement with tho Cosmojwlilim
that beautiful magazine mid tho CouitiEimro
offered for one year for f3. In other words,
CouniElt subscribers who jay n year in ad
vance can for an additional dollar get one of
tho finest magazines published in America.
The Cosmopolitan is a comparatively new
magazine, but it has made wonderful strides.
It recently came Into tho possession of John
Urlsben Walker, an experienced Journalist.
Besides having a literary tasta Mr. Walker
has great wealth, and it is his ambitiou to
ninko his magazine second to none. With
thnt in view he is 8iaring no expense, and
Hye-the-Ilyo considers it one of tho best mag
azines published. For tho price at which it
can be had In connection with thu Couhieii
there is no periodical in America to compare
Tho t'().vi;i(i7(in is at present backing a
notable enterprise, that of sending a courier
around tho world In teventy-llvo days or less.
A secial interest attaches to this event by
reason of tho fact that tho traveler Isa young
woman, and that Interest is doubled because
she is racing around the globo not only
ugalnsttlmo hut to outstrip another young
woman on a similar errand. Tho Now Yen k
World started Nellie lily out to U-nt tho
record of Jules Verne's famous trip around
tho world In eighty days, Hho left Now York
by steamer bound eastward. At last accounts
she was at Hong Kong three days abend of
time, and at this date she is probably on tho
Pacllle bound for Han rVanclsco. Tho t'iw
tiwiolitttni roproM-ntatlvo li Miss Klljihcth
lllslaud, who started on less than six hours'
notice. .Miss lily probably had tho advantage
of having studied routes and Htcd up on tho
timo of steamers, maklnga start ami arrange
ments accordli gly. Miss llislaud could haul
ly do this Hho left the Orand IVntial depot
In New York tho same day as Mtsti Illy, but
took the rallroadwestward. At last accounts
she was also two days ahead of her scheduled
time, and at present she is pioliahly some
where near tho Suez Canal. Kxcrloneed
Judges predict that she will maku the circuit
ill seventy-two days, thrcfdays lees than the
time allotted for the H'oWiV icpicsoutnthc
.Miss HWland's olservations and experiences
on this notable flight around the world will
lo emlsHlied in a half doen aitlcles in the
Cosmopolitan, which will bo illustrated from
instantaneous photographs taken by herself.
Miss Hlslaud is a writer who has won an
honorable placo amongtho literary women of
tho east. She Is not a senatloual writer, but
a lady of the most charming manners, of
thu greatest relhieiuent, as well as of con
sldcruhlo pel sonal beauty, as may be seen
from the portrait which wo piesent to our
leaders. Hho is well known in tho most in
tellectual circles of New York, and numbers
among her personal friends many of tho 'end
ing writers of tho Continent. She belongs to
ono of tho old families of LnuMatm, to whom
reverses camo in consequence of the war, and
her childhood was spent upon a plantation
near New Orleans. As she grew up, recog
nizing tho necessity for action, ho went to
Now Yoik and entered iion such literary
work as sho could procure. Her progress has
loen steady, her eii giving her access In New
York to some of the leading dailies, and to
thu weeklies and magazines until Ukiii the
clmnguof management in tho CoxmojHtlitun,
shu was offered a osltlon In tho book review
department, mid has besides, contributed u
series of special articles on "Studio Life in
New York," "Tho Ontoora Club," "Tuxedo,"
"Co-oHTatlvo Housekeeping," and (in the De
cember number) tho "Flower Market of New
York," all showing her successful style and
permanent command of English. In tho Jnn
nary number is an illustrated article from her
n upon the "Wolrl's Henutles," to which
wmu of her friends claim sho should 1k ad
mitted as a typo of creolo beauty. .Miss Ills
lond's picturesque little home is ono of the
prettltst literary interiors of New York, and
at her occasional leceptlons may IxMiiet ninny
of the most interesting literary and nrtlstlc
people of tho city. When Coquelln was there
her library was one of tho few salons which
ho visited, and tho only place where he ever
gave an impromptu recitation, a most deli
cate compliment to the charm of manner
that her French extraction made kin to his.
There aro not many, however, among the nu
merous admirers of Miss ftlsland's talents
who aro familiar with tho noble struggle by
which shu has attained her presont success.
With this journey, Mis Dlsland commences
to give all her time to tho Cosmopolitan, un
der contract at a liniulsomo salary.
Tho proportions of this enterprise and the
interesting results growing out of it, are
characteristic only of the intention of tho new
management to bring tho magazine before
tho public trusting to tho magazine's own ex
cellence to do the rest. Plenty of crisp arti
cles on timely subjects, with a host of Illus
trations and a complete Illustrated novel In
each number, aro its stiong points. Tho Coi
mopolitan has tho advantago of vigorous
youth, with no traditions to hamper itsnetive
progress. It has a mission in aiming to fur
nish a homo magazine brimming with the
liveliest of wholesome reading, devoid of long,
dull essays, and accompanied with a monthly
library of tho best modern fiction. The asso
ciation of such men as Edward Everett Halo,
editor of tho department of "Social Prob
lems," Prof. H. H. Iloyesen, ono of tho con
sulting editors, and Miss Dlsland, with a long
array of eminent nuthors and artists who
contribute to its monthly contents, constitute
a Bplendid array of talent. Mr. Walker's
management of tho magazlno has Ixt'ii ro
nmrkable. It is today the brightest, breeziest
nnd most readablo of the long list of month
lies. Think of it! Tho Couiueii for a year and
the complete works of Shakespeare in t2G
largo pages handsomely bound all for $:.&0.
For particulars read tho advertisement else
where. Speaking of Bhakesjwaro, Dion Uouclcault
gives us a new view of tho dramatist in tho
Arena tor January, the now Boston review.
Uouclcault Is a writer as well us n player, has
mailo a study of the drama and is a compe
tent authority on it. Ho quotes old Ben Jon
son m saying: "Tho players havo often men
tioned it a an honor to Bhakesiiearo that in
his writing (whatsoever he penned) he nover
blotted out a line." and Bouclrault argues
that that ought "fairly to settle the question
recently advanced that ho was an Illiterate
IHjrson, scarcely ablo to sign his own name,
mid orformed a life-long lmKsture, thus
befoolluir tho famllv of ilramii tw,i.
amongst whom ho lived in dally intercourse
mr iw!iiiy years 01 Ills lire."
But that to which Bye-the-Byo wished to
call attention is Bouclcault's assertion that
the plnys during Shakespeui o'h timo were for
tho most part composed us the French dramas
of the present day and written in "society;''
that is, three or four authors collaborating.
Uouclcault then lilts our god in the hem!
with this blow;
It seems Indisputable that wo havo scarcely
ono dramatic work bearing the name of
Kliakspere, which we can feel sure was of his
unaided conqiosltlon. Greene, his fellow
dramatist, taunts him with being a Journey
man scribbler, tinkering at the works of
others, mid olnt him out to his companion
authors as "an Uwtart crow lieautifled with
our feathers." This childish squall, however
absurd It may be, reveals the factthotShaks-
pore up to that timo was known as ono who
prepared the wot Ks of others for tho stage.
In some of his gieatest plays wo
may delect another anil very Inferior hand
nt work he-ilde his own. Tliote are
twomithois who write bildehlui who occa
sionally resemble him. These seem to U
Fletchei-aud lien Joiison, it Is dllllcult to lie
lievu that certain passages throughout the
works of these two khIs were not coiitllbut
eil by Hlmkss'io. Wn Hint Ills ilin
nmtlc woiks were iK'muddlisI, not only dur
ing their incubation by collaborating authors
hut during their production, by wanton act
ors, and subsequently they wciodl'pi'rHodnud
lost, to bo exhumed III parts seven M-ars after
his death; the Ismes as it were, collected and
put together mid so prtxeuted to the woild
by his self-constituted literary executors. Wo
must accept the conviction that KliiiksMrc
attached no viiluo to his plnys, excepting as
pot-hollers. He knew they weie not wholly
hlsow-i How differently he acted toward
the llrst born of his invention, the poem "Ve
nus and Adonis," upon which hir reputation
during his life had clilelly rested. It was
printed and publlslusl under his own direful
Miperriviuii look at It now It Is not defaced
by explanatory notes Interfering at uvery
line: he leaMs no ihiubtsas to the clearness of
tho text. Thosauie may IhsuIiI of his "Ltiv

scuilties here for commi'iitatois to wrangle
over. Of tho tnlrty-ilx or thiity

That none of Shakesj ware's manuscripts
have survived does not feem strnngo to Uou
clcault. The dramatic author hands in his
play to tho theater, where a prompt copy js
made that is of moro Importance than the au
thor's scrawl. If the author's copy goes to
tho printer it Is usually cut up and defaced
so that its remains are not worth preserving.
