An American Cathedral.
A project for the erection of a grand
cathedral , to cost from six to ton million
dollars , has recently developed m New
York and is receiving a good deal of nt-
tion both from the clergy ot that city and
tiic press , quite generally in the form of
hearty approval. The movement orig
inated with the Protestant Episcopal
church , and if the cathedral is built it
would bo under hc management of the
church , but it is Intended to bo much
more than a sectarian house of worship.
It Is dcaignod to make it the great
pcopja's church , the ono house of wor
ship on the continent opun to all , where
nil the great preachers shall bo heard ,
nnd wherein , moreover , the illustrious
dead of the country may bo commemo
rated , thus becoming the American
Westminster nbbcy. There would , ac
cording to Dr. Potter , bo in it no
reserved rights thnt could bo
boucht , hired or held on any
pretext whatever. It would bo the right
ful center of practical philanthropies ,
having foundations or endowments for
the mission work of a great city and
especially for the education of
skilled teachers and workers In
Intelligent ns well ns cmotionil
sympathies with our great social
problems. It is believed by the promoters -
tors of the project that m many ways
such a house of worship could accom
plish a vast amount of good.
The project has mot with some opposi
tion , chlelly on the ground that the ex
penditure of the large sum necessary to
carry it out. and which must bo obtained
by subscriptions , might seriously inter
fere with the missions , which must
largely depend on a similar wav of ob
taining resources. This view , however ,
prevailed to only u very limited extent
and was entirely overwhelmed by the
advocates of ho movement. Among
these who have been quoted
in advocacy of the cathedral is Hon. J.
\Voolworth , of Omaha , n part of
whoso address at the Detroit mooting of
the ninth church congresn in 188 $ , wo
find reproduced In an eastern journal.
On that occasion Mr. Woolworth hai
' 'There must bo the cathedral of all the
people , an Institution civic as well as re
ligious , the possession and the pndo of
all the citizens. " It is In this spirit that
the movement has been inaugurated. An
organi/.od ciibrt to obtain subscriptions
throughout the country is to bo made at
HtmkRspearo or Baoon.
Mr. Ignatius Donnelly begins in the
current number of the North American
Review his long promised revelations to
prove that the dramas credited to \\il
llam Shakespeare were not and could
not have been written by him , but were
the work of his eminent contemporary ,
Sir Francis Bacon. The intelligent
reader will not need to be informed that
the view which Mr. Donnelly will endeavor
doavor to establish is not original with
him , but ho has certainly pursued it with
greater patience and assiduity than any
other. Ho claims to have reached re
sults that will bo the literary sensation
of the century , nnd it is very likely the
magazine that is favored with the publi
cation of the revolutions will have a
largely Increased constituency during
their continuance , while of course they
will receive liberal discussion olscwhero.
Any question relating to the great
dramatist is sure to command
a world of attention , and
none more so than that affecting his title
to the authorship of the immortal dramas
that are credited to him.
The first instalment of Mr. Donnelly's
exposure of "The Shakespeare Myth' '
is to some extent disappointing , at least
to these who expected entirely now evl
denco. It is largely taken up with r
skillful presentation of what had already
boon put forward in support of the claim
in behalf of Bacon by those who preceded
Mr. Donnelly in this Held of invcstiga
tion , nnd while the parallelisms revealed
nnd certain other facts afilrmed do not
lack force and plausibility , they cannot
bo said to establish conviction. For
other reasons , also , the first impression
of Mr. Donnelly's work is nollikely.to bo
favorable with a great many. The icono
elastic spirit of the author seems to bo of
tho.most retentions kind , and be relegates
Shakespeare to outer darkness as a
drunken poacher who at different time
signed his name in sovcn different ways ,
and whoso real name or original name
was different from all of these , whose
birth in tlio historic Henley street cottage
is doubtful , nnd whose wife's name was
Whatloy instead of Hathaway. This
sort of obloquy , coupled with the charge
of illiteracy , will appear to a very largo
number of intelligent people not to bo
nbsolui61y essential to the purpose of Mr.
Donnelly , or at least not'in the style and
obvious spirit in which ho presents It. To
have stated that Shakespeare was of
humble birth , that his opportunities for
acquiring oven a limited education wore
few , and that his youth was somewhat
wild , nnd perhaps at times intemperate ,
would have been pardonable and possi
bly necessary. But Mr. Donnelly has
offended good taste and delicd
testimony probubly quite ns good
nfl any ho can produce in
the attempt to degrade Shakespeare
to the lowest piano of moral meanness
and mental insignilicanco. This is
n view which wo believe the intelligent
opinion of to-day will very generally re
On the other hand It cannot be doubted
that Mr. Donnelly will find some , possi
bly a great many , to acquiesce iu bis
theory respecting the authorship of the
Shakcsperean dramas. These wonder
ful products of genius , representing a
breadth ot knowledge , nnd A vastnesj
nnd universality of intellectual power
and resource , not to be found in the
works of any other author the world has
produced , may easily Justify n doubt ns
to whether they could have boon pro
duced by a man who had no bolter op
portunities than the uncertain record
shows wore at the command of Shakos *
pearo to fit himself for so great a taak.
It must always be regretted that EO
little is known with certainty concerning -
corning this man , nnd that much of what
is known is capable of being used to the
damage of hu fame. But wo are apt to
make a narrow and insufficient estimate
of the possibilities of genius , and espe
cially of such exceptional genius as is
disclosed in the Bhakcfporcan drama.
The restricted Intellectual scope of the
average man may well bo pardound If It
fails to comprehend how any mind , not
nurtured from Iti very dawn In every
form of mental acquirement nnd expert'
enco drinking constantly nnd freely at
all fountains of knowledge could pro
duce such a monument of universal wis
dom ns arc the plnys of Shakespeare.
Such a person will very likely agree with
Mr. Donnelly that tlio man William
Shakespeare , with only the limited ad
vantages of the grammar school
at Stratford , nil of wiildi ho
could not avail himself of , nnd
havlnc no definitely known opportunities
after going to London , at tlio ngo of 22 or
23 years , to Improve his education by
systematic study , could not have written
the plays that are no.iv credited to him.
Furthermore there Is the argument that
his cxpnnenco was necessarily dcliciont ,
particularly in these spheres of life which
are largely represented in most of the
great dramas. Ills circumstances ex
cluded him from association with roy
alty and from the companionship of the
nobility , jet the portrayal of thcso in the
plays denotes ono as familiar with their
manners and customs ns if he had been
of their number. In this , perhaps , con-
gists tlio strongest part of the case in
favor of Bacou , wl'.o certainly had every
opportunity to become familiar with roy
alty and the nobility. What can be said
on the other side is that there appears
to bo pretty well attested evidence
that Shakcspoaro left the grammar
school with n fair knowledge of Latin ,
that on going to London hu devoted him
self to the study of French and Italian ,
and that lie found development for his
dramatic gonuis as well as pecuniary
profit , in revising and rewriting plnys for
the several theatres. Nor i.s there much
reason to doubt that ho in due time , as a
writer of plays and an actor , hccuicd the
companionship of members of the nobil
ity , who more then , than now.voro the
patrons of actors. In .short , the facts and
arguments , are by no moans all on one
side , and at this time the. preponderance
is rather in favor of Shakespeare. It Is
not irano'isiblo that Mr. Donnelly may
change this , nnd his promise to do HO will
attract widespread and eager interest to
his cipher revelations.
Successful American Girls.
London advices litivo within the past
two or three months recorded the suc
cess in opera and tlio drama , in that city ,
of three American girls , who have at
least far more than balanced the failure
of Mrs. Sauics Brown Potter , and left n
good deal to our credit. The first of
these successes was achieved in opera by
Miss Ella Russell , who scored u distinct
triumph in the English metropolis in a
repertory including most of the grand
operas. This lady is perhaps twenty-
eight years old , and she has been heard
and honored in several of the capitals of
Europe. Slio is not u phenomenal
singer , but lias cultivated her gift of
song patiently and laboriously , nnd is
now receiving the reward of her work.
She will one day return to her own coun
try crowned with all the favors that
Europe can bestow , to receive what must
be.tlio choicest of all favors to the true
daughter of America the applause and
admiration of the people of her own
Another American girl who less than

debut in London ns Marguerite , and
afterwards won critical commendation
ns Leonna is Amelia Groll. She is said
to have a full soprano voice of pleasant
quality , an excellent stage presence ,
and youtu and beauty on her side.
The American girl who has had an al
most brilliant success on the English
stage is Miss Adclaido Vctchon , now
playing iu London aftorn successful tour
of the provinces. She is most cordially
praised by the London papers , and her
future is assured.
Thcso successful girls are all credited

A PHEASANT FARM.
The Game Preserves of on Kimllsli-

Cliiciigo Herald : A gentleman uti
lises his fiirm lands at Lihrook , not far
from London , which m thcso days of
agricultural depression ho found dillicult
to lotby turning them into a model game
farm. Pheasants arc hero reared with
the most scrupulous care and the process
of securing nnd collecting the eggs ,
hatching , nursing , and feeding the juve
nile pheasants , etc. , provide occupation
for a number of workers. ITOIU his
3,000 birds usually on the farm the game
breeder sends pheasants all over the
world to stock preserves , but ho supplies
eggs mos't carefully packed In cases devised -
vised byhimsclf and made on the promises ,
to breeders at a distance , who artiiicmliy
hatch their own eggs.
The devices for securing the safety of
this valuable nnd perishable stock nro
many and various , and great precaution
arc taken to prevent any depredation.
Hugo mastiffs and St. Benurd dogs tr.w-
erse a length ot wire cable which sur
rounds the farm stretched on the ground
upon which their chains are fastened In
lengths of 100 yards , and n very effectual
police force they make , not allowing approach
preach from any ono , friend or stranger ,
without well recognized credentials.
IlaU are terribly destructive to young
birds , if they can set at them , but hero
they nro not only kept at bay by curved
iron fencings , such ns wo see at the
Zoological gardens , but this year olootrio
battoncs arc so placed that if a wire is
touched by the marauder the shock
proves too much for him and ho tumbles
Partridges are not so difficult to deal
with as pheasants and there arc thous
ands of them on the Lihrook farm flying
about nnd taking care of themselves. All
the stock birds'aro kept in aviaries open
at tlio top , and their wings nro clipped
every three weeks. The labor of this
seemed to me enormous , , but the game
farmers say that it i.s nothing as com
pared to the expense of covering in forty
acres of aviaries.

Several months passed and ho went

reply. "Ten dollars a hundred unrt the

n It wns u sad fact. The Industrious boys
had fully that number of mice skins
stretched on boards. The buyer had to
invent something , and so ho said that'the
market had dropped oil' over three-quar

ended by settling with the boys for a live-
