The Scenic Painters Alliance is the.
name of a new union lockout entered
into by the scene painters of America
to keep artists from painting scenes or
curtains. Last week's Mirror gives
portraits of the officers and charter
members. They have the look of honest
workmen, hod carriers, brick-layers,
stone cutters, etc. Not one of them
looks a man to whom color and form
have told secrets. They are not to be
trusted with any secrets that require
a knowledge of art to express. Such
men have perpetrated the drop curtains
that hang all over the country. They
have made of Antony and Cleopatra,
George and Martha Washington, the
sphynx, castles on the Rhine, and other
noble objects by words. They are
about to make It impossible for an
owner of a theatre to have a beautiful
curtain. More people look at a drop
curtain than at any other picture. For
that reason if for no other it should be
painted by the best artists. One clause
in the rules of the Scenic Painters Al
liance states that "members shall not
submit models for approval unless as
part of a contract to be paid for." The
scenic painters, as a class, have lit
tle ability and no education. They are
ambitious sign and bouse painters who
would do good work under the direction
of an artist, but as a class, and In a
compact body, they spurn their direc
tion and everything artistic. Everyone
has only to remember the nightmares
that have unrolled themselves before
him to acknowledge the truth of these
charges. The New York scene paint
ers probably have more sense and abil
ity than the western men. In that case
their portraits do them gross injustice.
Henry Irving and Ellen Terry sailed
for home last week. On September 20
they will produce Cymbellne, the scen
ery for which will be made from de
signs by Alma Tadema. Evidently the

McClure's Magazine for May contains
the second Installment of "Phroso" An
thony Hope's melodrama. It is Just as
good if not better than "The Prisoner
of Zenda." Better in one respect, at
least, than the latter, it is absolutely
impossible to foresee the end. The hero
does not die because he is telling the
story In the past tense, years afterward
and he probably weds Euphrosyne af
ter interesting hysterics from his
finance and the Greek lady. I foresee
much amusement and many lives lost.
The remoteness of the Island Is undis
turbed by law and order, and the in
habitants can flght out their scraps
to the happy hunting grounds of ex
tinction. The only trouble with such
a story is it makes one so discontented
with actual. conditions.

THB FAMOUS, 1009 O St.
In school, he said: "A kid had an es
say about the city of Lincoln. He said
that it was all right If It were not for
the cops and the women In bloomers."
M. B. Curtlss as "Sam'l of Posen"
played to three small houses. His sup
port was poor. The villian was bad,
the good young man only a little bet
ter and the ingenue spoke her lines as
though she were reading from a book.
Sam'l himself was funny and original.
The type of Jew he presented Is differ-'
ent from anything I ever saw. The
rapidity with which he speaks makes it
extremely difficult to understand him.
He has played the part so long he
speaks like one in a dream. I am con
vinced his mind is not on his work. The
cast has lost some of Its members.
Mr. Curtlss had fifteen or twenty min
utes all to himself on the stage, which
he wore out by relating ossified stories.
When the cast was full Miss Pfholllet
Footlight appeared at this time and
made the chandeliers blink with appre
hension. But the audience liked
Sam'l's stories. To be sure they were
part of the badinage that Adam and
Eve tossed back and forth to each
other, but for this reason perhaps they
were welcome In a university town edu
cated to reverence the stone and bone
age. Alblna de Mer Mrs. M. B. Cur

Den man Thompson has written a
play full of attitudes struck by a self
conscious Sunday-school heroine who
saves lives and reforms them with one
hand tied behind her back. It has all
of the obtrusive virtue of "The Old
Homestead," without the hayrack and
the well sweep, and the tin dipper.
The street car strike in Milwaukee
has the sympathy of the citizens who

Mr. Frank Short, who has had much
success with his dramatic school In

Mr. Short himself as Math las does ex

is a one-act curtain-raiser. Mrs.
Matheson, whom many Lincoln people
have met, takes the principal part. Her
