John Corbln. whose sanity haa never
been questioned, and -whose soundness of
Judgment Is admitted, even by those who
like him least, takes a very hopeful view
of the situation as regards the outlook for
the American dramutist. In the failure of
the European crop of plays Mr. Corbln sees
the opportunity for the Amerieaa authors,
and he ulmosV gleefully polnta out that
tho authors on this side arc only waiting
for the chance. That the Held Is ripe for
the reuping Is patent, and that the reapers
are ready Is alBO plain. It only remains to
bo seen what the harvest home will bring
forth. The American authors have In times
past given us sonic excellent examples of
' the play ai we like It on the stago. It U
admitted that they have been somewhat
crude In their "efforts, buth In this they
have been true to life, for life Itself Is
crude, and In this land of hustle It Is par
ticularly bo, almost to the point of being
raw. But the dramatist who succeeds In
putting life on the stage Is the one who
wins. We may now and then turn from
the real to the unreal, from the actual to
the purely speculative, but It la only for a
moment and wa gladly return to those
drama lints who can give us real people,
moving and talking on the stage as they
might In real life. Polished phrases and
elegance of manners are, of course, always
acceptablo, but if some of our American
authors have failed to touch a situation
with the delicacy that marks the work of
tho European stagecraft, bear In mind that
most of the functions of life are carried
on on thla side with more of directness
and less of diplomatic subterfuge here than
over there. We have been Introduced by
European writers to whut they are pleased
to call "problems" of life that are not
problems for us, because the conditions that
produce, them are Impossible here, and ever
will be as long as tho American people
rutulna Its sturdy vitality. And yet thesa
are offered to us In the most alluring of
dress und served with an appetizing ap
pearance, so that we enjoy them while di
gesting them, and then thank God they
are of foreign production and not
from our field. It la bootless here
to recall the works of lironson
Howard, of David Bclasco, of Clyde
Fitch, and others who belong to the
not small company bf American authors,
and to suggest that wltb all their crudity,
they still have a wholesomenesa that will
never cease to be palatable. Let us hope,
then, that Mr. Corbln has read the signs
of tha times right and that we are to be
favored with more of the home-made drama
and less of the Imported stuff.
"The Spectator" of tha Philadelphia
Ledger breaks a splinter with those en
thusiasts who are bewailing the "good old
days," and who are clamoring for the re-
esiaousnment or tne stock company as a
remedy for the evils that have come upon
us at the theater. He polnta out the dif
ference In conditions that prevail now
from those of tha "palmy days" and shows
to some extent the great advance that haa
been made In stage methods at least. His
conclusion lo that a return to the stock
system would be of little benefit to the
stage, and that little would be more Imag
inary than real. The truth of the matter
Is that man is prone to live In the past,
learning but slowly and then by dear
bought experience, and has never been
willing to admit that the present la quite
qual to what- he has already enjoyed.
Whenever hs gets sp he can take advan
tage of what he has, enjoying today, even
While remembering yesterday, and looking
forward hopefully to tomorrow, expecting
not a return of something that Is gone, but
a realisation of something better, man
will ceaae to trouble himself about the
"palmy days" of the stage or anything
elae. Ha will then reallr.e that the golden
age' is now, and not some time fifty or
sixty or . even a hundred or a thousand
years ago. The stage and the drama of
today are not what they ought to be, nor
what they will be, but they are striving
nobly to keep up with a procession that
Is moving so fast that the swiftest trav
elers of the "palmy days" would faint
with dlaalneas If they were asked to get
Into line. It la not too much to hope that
some glad, sweet time we will no longer
have the grumbler with us, but until that
day we will always hear more or lesa about
"tha good old times." In the meantime,
the rest of us have the privilege of enjoy
ing to the utmost such pleasures of life
os those who lived In that uncertain time
never even dreamed of.
Borne of the thousands of people who
attended the exhibitions of the Barnum A
Bailey circus at Omaha last Monday can
recall the first trip of the P. T. Barnum
circus west of the Mississippi river, some
thing like thirty-five years ago, and to
these tbe contrast In methods was so great
as to be almost startling. Probably the
greatest, innovation on old-time circus
methods ia in the way the people are hand
died. When folks make up their minds to
attend one of the huge exhibitions given
under canvas in these modern times, they
expect to be crowded and Jostled about,
to be ordered here and there by coarse cir
cus employes, to be generally inconven
ienced In return for their money. Prob
ably the most discomforting thing about
the modern circus is its setitlng erarnge
merit. The thought of spending an hour
and a half on one of the narrow little
perches called seats Is enough to keep
thousands away from the performance,
nd the certainty that the seats will be
Jammed adds to the disquieting anticipa
tions with which even the enthusiast ap-
proaches the tent Now. right here is

good on Us claim to being "The greatest
show on earth." Such conditions as crowd
ing or discomfort are not known to it. To
begin with, tha seating capacity Is known
exactly, and when tne 11.800 set seats the
big tent accommodates are sold, - the sale
stops. Every person who buys a ticket Is
entitled to a Mat wltb lots of elbow room
and a. footreet. Nearly oil of the seats
re of the "reserved" vsrlety, and all are
comfortable. The boxes are found In this
' tent only, and while they are not numerous,
they are decidedly comfortable and afford
ft decidedly advantageous place for those
who are willing to pay the price. But this
Is only one feature. Another Is that the
attendants tro as pollie and attentive as one
finds t the theater, and the crowd is han
dled with as little confusion as at any of
tbe first-rlass houses. Steps are taken to
have everybody seated before the perfor
mance bealna. and then the spectators are
required to remain seated until after the
program has been completea. mis noes
away with any likelihood of accident to a
visitor. Speaking of accidents, a depart
ment of the circus with which the public
da not often cftme Into contact Is the
emergency hospital. Close to the entrance
of the big tent la the headquarters of the
medical and surgical corps, and here all
emergency cases are taken for Immediate
attention. No accident Is too trlvlnl to be
looked after. If a child should Catch a
finger In the back of a chair, for example,
it Is examined and attended to. If a woman
should faint, as so often happens, she Is
given the best of skilled attention. The.
ushers and others are constantly on the
watch for these occurrences and attend to
them Immediately. Nothing Is sold In the
big tent save tickets to the concert, and
these are vended so unobtrusively as to
occasion no annoyance whatever. Outside
the tent the same watchful vigilance per
tains. A competent corps of detectives Is
on the lookout for suspicious characters all
the time, as one of the Omaha clfy council
members can testify. The public Is not al
lowed to rush Into any danger whatever.
When the tents are being taken down a
dead line Is established, and back of it the
people must stay. "I don't know why,"
answered a big policeman to an Inquirer
on this point; "I only know I was told to
keep" you back." And that Is all. Every
thing possible for the safety or comfort
of the people seems lo have been provided
for. In all respects the show Is worthy of
Its high claims. ,

"The Runaway Tramp," a farce comedy
of the Weary Willie type, will be pre
sented at the Boyd this afternoon- and
evening. It la said to be in the hands of
s company entirely competent and prom
ises entertainment to those who like that
style of play. Specialties of various sort
are offered by the company during the
progress of the entertainment, and the
whole is said to be funny from first to last.
The enagement is for the two perform
ances only.
' Chauncey Olcott comes to the Boyd the
ater for two nights this week, beginning
Thursday, including a special matinee on
Friday, at which he will present "Ter
rence," as well as on Friday evening. On
Thursday evening he will present a new
production of Augustus Pitou's comedy
drama, "A Romance of Athlone." The
piece has an Irl?h nobleman with two
eons, one good and one bnd; an heiress and
a rich man. who also has a beautiful ward.
The love Interest comes from the contem
plated and delayed marriage of the good
son and the heiress. There Is a kldnaplns,
an attempt to get ransom money and a
duel. The last Is a feature of which much
is mnde and Is said to be one of the most
realistic and scientific fencing bouts ever
given on the stage. The ueenery is eald to
be beautiful, the first act showing the ex
terior of an Elizabethan mansion, with a
rose garden and park; the second act is a
carved oak interior, the third the Interior
a ruined abbey by moonlight and .the i
rth a nnrlr nf ,i.,nti. ,,,,,, i
rin a pnrK or gigantic trees, In which
the duel takes place. In the course of the
play Mr. Olcott will sing new songs, writ
ten and composed by himself, and will also
Interpolate one song, "My Dreams," by
Tostl. On Friday, both at the special
tnee'and night performance, Mr. Olcott will
present his odmirublc play, "Terronce,"
which wa received most favorably lufct
season. '
The engagement of "Arizona" at the !
Krug theater for four nights and two mat
inees, starting Sunday matinee, September
18, will afford the patrons of this theiter
considerable satisfaction. The piece is as
full of bright-color contrasts as the chang
ing combinations of a kaleidoscope. It
fairly pulses with frosh, vigorous, active
life of the west It has a love story as
tender and almost as tragic as that of
"Romeo and Juliet," and It has a relief
work of humor as il and unctuous as
that In which Mr. Thomas has previously
shown us In "Alabama" and "In Missouri."
That "Arlsona" will be richly staged and
excellently well acted is guaranteed by
the names of the artists who painted the
scenes from actual sketches In the terri
tory of Arisona. the names of the clever'
actors whom Mr. Thomas has chocen for
the principal roles of his piece. The scenes
of acts one and four, "Canby's ranch,"
near Fort Grant, in the Aravalpa valley,
were painted by Walter Burrldge from
sketches specially made by him In Arizona.
The drawing room was painted by John
Faust from actual rooms at the ranch and I
military post. The decorations, costumes
nd accoutrements were all chosen and
arranged by that eminent authority on
western life and customs, Frederick Rem
ington, the artist of "The Man and the
One of the scenic sensations of the stage
Is . the, great locomotive rescue scene, with
its accompanying electrical snow storm,
which furnishes the climax to the third act
of "The Wayward Bon," the comedy
drama which will be presented at the
Krug theater for an engagement of three
nights and Saturday matinee, commencing
Thursday night, September 22. It la In this
illusion or a rapidly moving train that the
art of the acene painter, the stage me
chanio and the expert electrician Is seen
at its best. With a strong love story in
terwoven with the more strenuous ele
ments of the plot and with a large cast of
carefully selected players engaged In It3
presentation, "The Wayward Son" has al
ready proved itself one among the greatest
successes of the present season.
The aeventh season 'of modern vaudeville
will be ushered In at the Orpheum today
when matinee and evening performances
will be given. Since the opening of the
sale, last Monday tha demand for seats
haa been steady and big and Indicates full
houses both afternoon and evening, and on
Monday night, when the fashionables have
engaged seats. The bookings for this sea
son embrace more new acts, and especially
European features, than have ever ap
pealed here. A glance at the rosier for
the opening program will show there is not
a player that has ever appeared at the
Orpheum., Barney Fagan and Henrietta

There is no power of description capable
of portraying the feelings of the lover of
sacred music c' h music of the highest
type as he enters St. Paul's cathedral in
London a few minutes before the service
begins. For a long time before he reaches
those flights of steps at the top of which
are those moniter doors that are seldom
opened, he her . the deep religious voices
of those noble bells calling to the worship
of the Most High, and one cannot help, as
he enters by tho door to the left of the
large doors on the west, lifting his soul
to he fullest meaning of those words:

house, and the place where Thine honor

King Ethelbert built a cathedral to Bt.
Paul the Apostle in the year 607! Think
of it! And that waa the third that had
been on that spot.
A stone slab in the ground in front of
the west door reads: "Here Queen vic
toria returned thanks to Almighty God for
the sixtieth anniversary of her . acces

on which she alighted from her carriage
on that occasion.

In regard to the work of Bf.
Paul's msgnlflcent choir, being a lover of
thopo, things, lot me quote you a very
responsible layman, whom you know. Mr.
William K. Curtis, who, writing some time
ago In the Chicago Record-Herald, sayi:
Nowhere on this earth can you hear such
heavenly music as at the vesper services
at St. Paul's It Is sare to contend that
nowhere are sweeter and. nobler sounds
produced by human voices. Tho monks at
the monastery of St. Alexander Navsky.
Ju6t outside of St. Petersburg, have what
Is considered the finest choir In the world,
and the Hoods of harmony that pour from
their throats can scarcely be surpassed,
but the music at St. Paul's Is very differ
ent. The childish tones of the boys are
lighter, sweeter and more angelic. If wo
can use that term, than the maturer tons
of tho monks. The great choir at St. Pet
er's In Home does not compare with the
boy choir of St. Paul's, and the florid Ital
ian music was never Intended for purposes
of worship. (I Interrupt here to thank Mr.
Curtis for that sentiment; he is eminently
rlAhvolume of sound that might remind an
Imaginative man of a purple sunset, and
the prayers and praise of such Incompar
able harmony must be acceptable to Him
who created music. The only criticism that
can be mado or the music at St. Tsui s is
that it ends too soon, and no encores are
This is from a man who has been In
trusted with many missions of Importance,

Washington correspondent for a great Chi
cago dally, traveler, special writer, etc.,
and not a musician.
The rich decoration which Is now in
course of finishing at St. Paul's is tre
mendously effective and impressive. The
celling of the Choir, part of which Is now
hidden behind canvas. Is decorated In Il
lustration of the Creation, and Is said to
be the making of a new epoch in ecclesias
tical art. It is done In mosaic work, with
tesserae, or cube of richly colored opaque
glass, and is the work of Sir William
Richmond. R. A.
As I stood beside the organ of this great
cathedral with my hand on the bench I
could not but feel a veneration for the
"apostolic succession" of thoyo who had
ministered In Saint Paul's giving forth the
bounds of organ music In generations past.
Away back In 1517. on September IS, Just
357 years ago this very day. In St. Paul's
cathedral, Archbishop Cranmcr's adapta
tion of the litany to a chant, was sung In
English, "the priests and clerks all kneel
ing," and from this date the history of
English church music began, for It was
then that for the first time any portion of
tho liturgy was "publicly performed in vul
gar tongue."
Think of this lino of organists:
Jeremiah Clarke lrflS-1707
Richard Brind 1707-171
Maurice Greenes 1718-176S
John Jones 17o6-17li
Thomas Attwood 179fi-l3?
Sir John Gose 1838-1K72
Sir John StHlner 1S72-18SS
Sir George Martin 1888
And It was Sir George Martin who sat
at the Fame organ bench and prayed when
we heard the services four weeks ago to
day. An Interesting eplrode of the life of Han
del, in connection with the cathedral of
St. Paul's (the Eastmlnster as contrasted
with the Abbey of Westminster), is given
by the famous Dr. Burney In his "His
tory of Music." "On Handel's first arrival
in England from Greene's (see above list
of organists), great admiration of this
master's manner of playing, he had some
times literally condescended to become his
bellows blower when he went to St. Paul's
to play upon that organ, for tho exercise
it afforded him In the use of the pedals.
Handel, after 3 o'clock prayers, used fre
quently to get himself and young Greene
locked up In the church together, and in
summer, often stripped into his shirt,
played until 8- or 6 o'clock at night." From
this it may be r.ssumed that the pedal key
board was introduced Into England early
in tho eighteenth century.
' The boys who sing at St. Paul's sre en
tirely educated and supported by the ca
thedral, and their life, while it is full of all
that goes to make a boy's life glorious anJ
Joyous, ia also a splendid training in rou
tine, and the musical education In connec
tion with their work Is something worth
llvlna for.
Time would be well spent in compiling a
list of the choir boys of St. Paul's who
have become famous In later years, nnd
perhaps some day there wl'l be found op
portunity, but not now, as far as the pres
ent writer Is concerned.
