As, however, In nil celebrations where the
people wander through tbo irarlanded streets
during the day nnd ovoiiIiik, the theatre al
ways ' nil left," so to RAk, and depend only
on the regular local thentre-Koers . It Is
pretty hard to fight against free shows of any
kind, ami when they coino In thb st npo of
Columbian celebrntlons, It's useless. In spite
of the splondld attractions produced by the
Metropolitan managers for tbo millions of
stt angora that Imvecuiuo to town, they havo
refused to flock to the play house, m some
eipocted,nnd perhaps this will give tho rainbow-chasing
mnuugors who expect to mnko
n great deal of money during tho world's
fair at Chicago, imuw. At none of the largo
repositions, whether In London or I'm Is,
Vienna or Melbourne, havo the thottrcs done
anything like good business while tho fairs
were going on, nud the stieet filled with
great multitude who found enough to soe
wandering around Kven If they had inado
up thtir minds to visit a particular play, thty
felt too tired to do so, and when tho shades
of evening, electrified into daylight, again
lured them, tho weary crowd drifted along
tho arteries of tho great city until they
tumble Into beds at their dllToient hotels en
tirely exhausted. Tho grand festival pro
duction of Tho Triumph of Columbus, by
Silas U. I'ratt. at Carnegie Muslo Hall,
which ought to havo attracted all muilc
lovers, failed to draw as many people ns were
on the stage and In tho orcho-dra on Monday,
nnd so It had proven at every theatre, with
tho porslble exception of Hoyt's A Trip to
Chinatown, which has such a solid pull that
It overflowed the Madison Square Theatre
completely. In tho many good things pro
vided there was nothing absolutely new on
At tbo Star, Mr. Joseph Jelforson appeared
In Hip Van Winkle, and the renewal of the
play, after several years of disuse, was a
manifest satisfaction to everybody. Hip has
not changed nt all. Onca ngalii bis good
humored shlftlsssness, before the twenty
.years of sleep, nnd his piteous daze uKn
awakening, were portrayed with sucli n
nicety of naturalness as to mako the Irving
legend seem cpilto probably. The general
representation was quite ndequato Mr. Jef
ferson was received in i very friondly fash
Ion and bis acting met with full appreciation.
At thoQnideii, Mine. Helena Modjeska em
ployed n role new to her, and one which had
not been acted In New York by anybody
since 1874. Tnis was Katharine of Arragon
In Bhakespeaie's very dull play of King
Henry VIII., a part associated in theatrical
history with materially powerful actresses,
like Fanny Kembleand CharloUe Cusbmau.
There was a special curiosity to soo whether
Modjcska's lack of physical force would pre
vent her from achitvlng an artistic success ,
but she did. The subtlety and sureness of
her acting sufficed. Of course her other
wise faultless elocution was greatly marred
by her foreign accent, and listeners had to
be Intent in order to get the full meaning of
her utterance. She gave complete expres
sion, however, to tbo sorrows of the wronged
queen, and her performance was one moro
triumph in her career of triumphs. More
than praiso of Modjcska's own acting is duo
to her for this rcproductbn of a play seldom
given on tho stage. She had put a great
deal of thought, taste nud monoy Into tho
production, and the good result of all tho ox
endlturo whs a really lino illustration of
Hhakespeuro's work. Tho scenery, tho cos
tumes, tho arrangement of tableaux an 1 the
movements of the people were truthfully
pictorial, and embellishing within tho bounds
of good judgment. -
Ye Earlle Trouble, which was seen 'or the
first time at the Twenty-third Street Theatre,
was tried at Boston last season, is from tho
not untrue pen of a native 'dramatist, Houry
Uuy Carleton, and it was put forward with
many advantages, derived from picturesque
scenery, brilliant uniforms, a large company
of well-liked actors and the presence of a
friendly audience. It did not gain a thor
ough success and not onco did It stir Its spec
tators to anything like enthusiasm. The
story of the American revolution does not
in many respects lend Itself easily to tho de
mands of tbo dramatist. Pet haps a dozen
plays have In past years essaj ed to clothe In
romantic and plausiblo garb soma incident of
that great contest, but it is not recalled that
more than fleeting j applause baa rewarded
any of these attempts. Mr. Caileton may
safely be congratulated for having aocomj
llsbed more than those "who preceded him.
Ho has made a play that is technically strong
at any ratef for Its plot is ingeniously con
trived, the exposition of it Is rapid proper,
the lanpuago is good and t'io lighter pissages
oro entirely felicitous. The liberties It takes
with history may lie kindly dealt with, The
revolution would make a grim stage plav,
