The Whitehall Heviovv tints answers the
recent ciltkism made by Bouclcault on the
dramatic ciitic , who , after the first leproscn-
tatloii of n play , hurtles away to the olllco.
nnd waiting for dcai life and weary to death ,
ptoduees , not a valuable criticism , but a
probably unfair report of what he has seen.
The Whitehall Review thinks "weary to
denth" is noteompllmentarj to the uTamnt-
ists nnd adds : A proppi critic , well veised
ns he must needs be in the laws which regu-
lale dr.nuntlc cousti notion , sees nt once what
needs mending and what to be omitted. Ho
liuds no difficulty In at once tiaiismltttng
bis Impulsions to papci , nnd generally
vviites a iiio'e tieiichant and complete icv'lew
than tue critic who wants a week. The best
proof of this is tlio excellence otcillicibius
which nppenr in the dally papeis on the
morning aftci tao production ot a new piece.
Jt seldom happens that the play tuins ont n
success it the critics decl.iro it a failure. It
Is noiiunu dilli-iilt tor n pr.icticisod oiitlc to
sit down Immediately after the play and re
cord in a cap.iblo and just manner , bis 1m-
prosslon than it Is fora leader writer to pio-
duce aeiltlclsmon a debate in pailiamcnt ,
which l.s only concluded In the small hours
ot the niorn.lni . : . The public look lor both in

after thu events.
The Whitehall Huvlow reverses Its field
glabs on the. United States when observing :
It Is not a little amusing to note the doublc-
fnced action indulged in by the American
pi ess over the question of nnaichy. So long
ns this is under tbo disguise of fcnlanlbin ,
socialism nnd dynamiting , conducted to thu
detriment ot Kngllsh lite and properly , tlio
Americans anil tholr pies have no sympathy
toxpieoss for these tioubles , but when tbo
sere foi m ot rebellion takes place In America
the liistlgatois nnd perpetrators of civil re
bellion aic hunted down , captured , tried and
condemned. But , then , what happens In
Chicago Is ono thing and what happens in
London Is another.
