has ever had. A few years ago be ex

capacity of his power, and we may hope
'yet to aeo him flit aome of the gaps that
'are being made by death or old age In tho

"Other old friends in the company were
'heartily welcomed, and one or two new
'faces which shone over Omaha footlights
lor the first time made such Impression
that people will be glad to see them again.
"The Tempest" Is a dreary thing at best,
ani the most ambitious of stage mechanics
cancot put life Into it. From an artistic
I point at least the only apparent excuse
for Its production Is that Wagenbala Y
t Kemper wanted to give James and Wards a
'vacation and still keep them on the road.
I Down at the Crelghton-Orpheum a vaude
ville bill with aome very bright spots In
lit was well patronized. The popularity of
this form of amusement rcall seems to
be growing In Omaha, after four seasons
of what looked to the management like
During the recent convention of the
Disciples of Christ In Omaha, one evange
list, Rev. Gregory F. Hall of Chicago,
'ought to attract aome attention fro.-n the
.press on the reciprocity basis, but wib lost
among the really great men who were in
attendance.' Since his return to the city
by Lake Michigan he has succeeded In get
ting some newapaper attention, and may
live to rue It. It is reported that during
tha course of his sermon last Sunday even
ing he went after Richard Mansfield In
way calculated to curl the hair of that
amiable and estimable gentleman. For a
-cause of action the reverend gentleman set
tip that It bad been reported to him that
' Mr. Manaflnld swore because aome of the
Chicago theaters are used for religious
services on Sunday. "It Mr. Mansfield Bald
so and bo," Bald Rev. Gregory, "then,"
and he proceeded to call down several
different sorts of anathemas and that kind
of thing on Mr. Mansfield. Now, no one
who knows Mansfield would ever think blm
guilty of ' the language charged. He can
use a big D, and doubtless does on proper
provocation, but he does not play on Sun
day night, and so It Is of no moment to
him what goes on at the theater, whether
It Is a sermon or a minstrel show, bo long
as the theater is, there ready for his uses
on Monday night. And he probably never
heard of Rev. Gregory F. Hall. But Mr.
Mansfield has new manager, one who has
suffered long; in editorial harness and who
knows the pains and penalties of libel
from association with that which is more
ubject to suits of this sort than any other
American Institution. It la, therefore, prob
ably not from motives of revenge that Mr.
tLyman B. Glover has begun action against
tha enthaslastle preacher for hla III
'advised aspersions against Mr. Mansfield,
but to taste the delights of being connected
with the plaintiff in an action for libel.
(Mr. Hall is contumacious and saya he will
;not retract nor abate his statements, and
Mr. Olover aays the court must decide if
the communication be privileged. Maybe
when Mr. Hall emerges from the ault he
.will be of.. the aame opinion still, but a
little more chary about expressing It. And
as Victor Herbert has Just recovered dam-
ages from the Musical Courier for one of
its criticisms of an opera, there may be a
new vista opening for the people on the
stage who have heretofore had no other
means of redress than a speech from before
It is unpleasant to think that one so
honored as has been Mr. Bronson Howard
should, even under the Influence of a din
ner's geniality, defend even tentatively the
"problem play." Mr. Howard's own plays
are all clean and be has Justly prided him
self on this, and, therefore, it is surprising,
to say the leapt, to find him credited with
.the following, which Is taken from a report
f a speech by him at a dinner given In
Ms honor by the American Dramatic Writ
ers' club of New York, of which he Is presi
dent, last Sunday evening. The excerpt Is
from the Dramatic Mirror:
r ' I have- been complimented on the good
morals of my plays. 1 assure you, gentle
men, that the morals of those playa have
come from artistic Impulses solely. When
I wrote them the American people were a
moral people. I felt I was Illustrating
the American people when they were a
moral people. The stage should be as broad
as the morals of the people. You must
leave It to the people whether they shall
reform it or not.
But we will net be guided In our morals
by the necessity, of that Ignorance which
many think the school girl should have.
On this point we will defy the critics to
Keep yout daughters at home If you
want to. We will have more room for
the fathers and mothers and they will
hear lota they ought to hear. Whatever
I line you work In, respect, yourselves and
j We must have the problem play. I
don't believe a man can be an artist and
a philosopher, but let's try It, anyway. If
the problem play has its listeners they
must be cutered to. The one thing for
you dramatists to do Is to get there.
AH we hear about high art comes from
nonproducera. In morals don't be scaven
gers. Se don t want them in the theater,
fltespert your audience. Work that the au
dience doesn t receive Is never given to
posterity. Also respect the box office.
No one knows better than Mr. Bronson
; Howard how weak his argument Is. To
I contend that the playwright should con-
tent himself, with . merely mirroring his
i times and surroundings Is not only to
! lower the standard set for the stage by
I Its moat earnest advocates, but In the
i present Instance to argue that the people
of the world are moral degenerates. If tha
Hard to attend to daily duties

With annoying urinary disorders;
With any Kidney or Bladder ills
Doan's Kidney Pills
Make work easier;
Make lck kidneys well;
Cure backache and all Kidney troubles.
Endorsed by people you know, here at home.
Mr. Charles O. Winger, brick moulder, Ne. Hit North Nine
teeth street, says: "A friend et mine heard me complain of
aching in my back and trouble with the kidaey secretions.
I bad been subject to these attacks frm the day I hurt my
back lifting some bouse sills four years ago. This frlead gave
ms a box of Doan's Kidney Pills which he bad bought at Kuha
sV Co's drug store. I thought a dose or two helped m and I la
creased the quantity. The treatment cured me; at least np to
date I have not been bothered with any of my old symptoms."

problem play faithfully presented modern
social conditions, then. Indeed, hss society
reached a deplorable state and one from
which dramatists, acting with all other
reformers, should strive to ralae It. It la
not true, and the members of the dab Mr.
Howard addressed know that it is not.
Here and there may exist those moral
ulcers that give us Mrs. Ebbsmiths and
Mrs. Tanquerays, Saphos, Katlnkaa and
Zazas, but they are not typical of aoclety
anywhere and It Is an affront to common
sense for anyone to. so Insist. That a mor
bid condition should lead people to the
theater to watch these strenuous heroines
flaunt their flagitious frensy or parade their
pitiful passions, warmed up Over the em
bers of burnt-out loves, should be mis
taken for a human Interest In the un
clean, la unfortunate If not actually blame-
werthy. Mr. Howard's advice to parents
to keep daughters at home Is not unlikely
to result In the parents remaining at home
as well, tor the average man of family,
without being a prude, doesn't like to go
to plays which be cannot talk about In tho
home clsjle. 8ome people like cheese with
skippers In it, but most do not.
Here are two of Roy Mantel's latest
stories told in the Inter-Ocena:
Whn Wilton T.nckv was here with the
Bingham company he was accompanied by
Mrs. LACKaye, according to a new sior
which "HIIT Hall Is telllnc At a small
after-theater party the conversation took
tne course or many conversations m vm
cago these days and reference was made
to George Ade and the success he had
gained, as humorist and playwright. Some
body ventured that the young man was
investing his money wisely and had pur
chased a farm.
"Ha h farm In Indiana that he goes
to?" Inaulred Mrs. Lackaye. And her
niitclr-wittsd hnahand renlled. blandly:
"No, my dear he dldn t buy it to go to-
Just to refer to.
Mr. Mansfield has said many good things
In his time, jand a few that were not so
good. Yet all ne Interesting because of the
contrast they oner, ir lor not oiner reason.
The actor, like other studious men. Is
frequently preoccupied and likely unaware
nf int what hn Is savins", lie Is. In
fact, very fond of committing the lines of
a new rart to memory wrm no i in
motion. Bometlmes he studies while walk
imH nn horseback: occasionally
Mrs. Mansfield and he drive. On one of
these studious drives last September they
found a rain was overtaking them and they
drove to the country house of a friend who
hDnnniail n live near bv. Some country
friends of the host had also sought shelter
there. The rtWn increased Instead of abat
ing and whenAilnner time came there was
quite a dinner party. There was among
other things an abundance or sweet corn
on the table. One of the strangers tried a
nmmio nf ojlts. but did not like the corn
and said so. His companion replied, with.
mingled resroacn ana apoiogy: xou
shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth."
Mansfield glanced up from his plate snd
remarked quietly: "He's not looking the
gift horse in the mouth; he's looking the
corn in tha ear.
Harry Bereeford, well remembered here,
will bring his comedy-starring vehicle,
"The Wrong Mr. Wright," to the Boyd this
afternoon and evening. Mr. Bereeford tried
the piece here last season and was very
well received. It affords him an excellent
vehicle for the display of his peculiar com
edy talent. The piece Is a clever and bright
affair from the pen of George Broadhurst,
the anchor of several good things. Mr.
Bereeford claims to be surrounded this sea
son by a most capable company, which in
eludes his clever wife, Emma Dunn, also
known here as a former member of the
Woodward Stock company. The comedy Is
promised with the necessary stage adjuncts.
Uncle Tom, Little Bva, Topsy, Legree, the
bloodhounds and Marks the Lawyer will
make their annual appearance at the Boyd
on Monday night. They will stay until
Tuesday night and on Tuesday afternoon a
special school children's matinee will be

big street parade. In which will participate
a colored drum corps, two brass bands, a on
keys and all the paraphernalia belonging to
the show. Including the bloodhounds, will
be given at noon Monday and Tuesday.
Frank Leo, an old-time minstrel and black
face artist, is enacting the role of Uncle
Tom this season. The company numbers
100 people, sixty of which are colored peo
ple and all of whom are singers, dancers
and comedians. The cotton picking seen
will Introduce them.
Rose Melville, who created the character
of 81s Hopkins, a new type of country girl,
will be soen in the play of that name at the
Boyd Wednesday and Thursday nights.
While ."Sis Hopkins" Is a rural drama It Is
said not to be on the cosvenilopal lines.
All the parts were created to fifth unique
character of Bis Hopkins. It has been
given very elaborate scenlo investiture.
Miss Melville presented .the act. Sis Hop
kins, In vaudeville until her work attracted
the attention of Manager John R. Sterling,
who elaborated it into a play, which has
been a big success everywhere.
Mr. Stuart Robson will be seen in his re
vival of "The Comedy of Errors" at tha
Boyd on Friday night and Saturday mat-
lnee. On Saturday night he will present
"The Henrietta." In "The Comedy ot Er
rors" Mr. Robion will enact the role ot
Dromio of Syracuse. Dromlo of Ephesus
will be in the hands ot Clifford Leigh, an
English actor who was at various times
tho leading support ot Mrs. Lang try. Sir
Charles Wyndham and Cyril Msude.
Mr. Leigh Is said to resemble Mr. Robson
very much. Edwin Holt, who created the
part of Colonel Bonham In "Arlsona," will
be seen as Antlpholus of Byracuse and
Adolph Jackson will be seen as hla twin
brother Antlpholus of Ephesus.
Miss Eleanor Barry will handle the part
ot Adrians and Mlas Francta Mayo that of
her sister, Luciano.
Other well known members of the coat
are Charles Lane, Cecil Kingston, Jennie

distinguishing herself everywhere she has
appeared. Is said to be no less a pronounced
success In the "continuous" thsn was
Jessie Bartlett Davis or Camltle D'ArvlIle,
heads the list. Another of the features Is
Robert Fulgora, whose name as actor and
manager Is familiar to theater-goers. Af
ter sn sbsence of seven years, during which
period he managed the Trans-Oceanic Star
Specialty company and other of his own
organisations, he returns to the boards in
his old role of transflgurator. He will pre
sent tableaux incidental to the surrender
of General Lee, Impersonating Lincoln,
Grant and other leading figures of the civil
war. He will also deliver his exciting reci
tation on a horse race. Clara Balerlnl is a
trapeze performer from Europe. Flske and
MacDonough will present a comedy sketch
called "Blnsky's Romance," while Agie
Norton, the chic and talkative monologutst,
returns with more of that advice to the
women that has distinguished her fun
making. Arthur Balerinl's dogs Is another
foreign feature. Tegge and Daniels, a pair
of funny men, and entirely new klnodome
pictures completes the program.

written all the incidental and chorus music.
Miss Henrietta. Grossman's popularity
with women has been strikingly manifested
at Wallacks theater. New York. At two
successive Saturday matinees of "The
Sword of the King" the big audiences of
women have insisted on a. speech from
Miss Crossmon. Speechmaklng from the
stage on special occasions, such an first
nignts, is noi uncommon, oui lor auuteium
to demand it at ordinary performances.
and matinees at that, is extraordinary. It
shows the (treat admiration In which Miss
Crossman Is held by her own sex. In both
of her speeches Miss Crossman asserted
that she liked to play to women.
Mr. Justin Huntly McCarthy has two new
plays in hand. A London paragrapner
writes: "The first Is a play entitled 'The
Proud King,' which he had written for Mr.
E. H. Sothern, and which will be produced
next autumn in rnew xorn, me nero is
the legendary King Robort of Sicily, and
in order to obtain local color, for scenlo
ofTupta tha vounor dramatist Is about to
visit the island. The story relates to the
monarch who. boasting that no heavenly
power, could depoeSi.liTm, suddenly ' found,
himself throneless. In thld rdmantlc drama,
there are two leading lemaie ina iwo ieu
ing male parts. Mr. McCarthy's second
play is of an eighteenth century character,
with a strong woman's part, specially
written for a popular American actress."
I had the pleasure of spending a most
agreeable evening last week with Mr. Kron-
berg ot Mittelstadt Brothers & Kronberg,
managers of the Mascagnl tour.
Having known Mr. Kronberg well fo.
years, I can vouch for the fact that when
he tells me that he considers "Iris" tho

Apart from the greatness already con
ceded to Mascagnl years ago, there Is al
ways great Interest In seeing a master con
duct hla own works. Maacagnl is a man
who works with his mind, his heart, his
soulful not with his body. His conducting
Is psychical, not physical.
The treatment accorded him by part of
the New York press, was in my humble
opinion, simply brutal.
The American spirit of fair play was not
for a moment In evidence. The musicians
were tired from long traveling, lodging-
quest, strange city, etc., and the many
necessary slips and accidents. Incidental
to a first performance.
The way the American people have sup
ported tor years the opera of "CavalUrla
Rusttcana" Is surely a sign ot the inherent
greatness of both opera and eomposar. The
American press poured forth columns of
stuff about the opening night of "Iris" in
Jar-off Italy, and yet when Moscagal comes
here, he is searched tor faults rather than
virtues. His orchestra is pulled to pieces
and torn to shreds et the very first per
formance, and "Little Italy" is sneered at

It Is refreshing, however, to read this

As there seems to be a good deal of mis
understanding about the story of the opsis,
I sppend It herewith, as it is pobllsncd In
a recent Issue of the Concert Gotr.
'Iris" Is an Oriental story. The plot Is
Japanese. Its philosophy differs entirely
from all western systems. In it tne sun
talks and is answered, as a person having
consciousness and all things are supposed
to nave knowledge. The story opens with a
scene In the little garden of Iris, the only
child of an old blind man, Cleco. She is
playing with her doll baby and talking to
the sun, and the young man, Osaka, con
trives with Kyoto, a taklamatt, or keeper
of a house In the Yoshlwara, a plan to
capture Iris and to keep her In the Yoshi-
wara. To carry out their plan they get
rome, dolls and arrange a puppet show.
