THE DBA M,\.
NEW PLAY AT DALY'S THEATRE.
"LADY HUNTWORTH'S EXPERIMENT."
It seems to have been Mr. Daniel Frohmar. >
experiment as well as Lady Huntworth's. and
happily It succeeded in the one case as thorough
ly as In the other— for Mr. Carton's play,— which
twists all the strands of farce, comedy, domes
tic drama and caricature.— was followed with in
terested attention by a fine audience, and was
auspiciously received, 'i is a nondescript fabric,
apparently intended as a satire on some phases of
English character— more particularly that of the
conventional, stilted, emasculate clergy— and It
abounds with situations that are wellnlgh im
possible and incidents that are preposterous;
but it is strong in bits of character, it is brightly
written, and its composite quality of good sense,
good feeling, and mirth commends it to cordial
favor. Lady Huntworth, its heroine, was a good
woman, unhappily married. She revolted against
a loathsome matrimonial alliance with a drunken
blackguard, and in order to escape from her misery
she allowed him to obtain a divorce, which left
her under a blight of undeserved disgrace. Then,
being poor, she took service as a cook, in the fam
ily of a clergyman: That was her experiment.
The play exhibits a^ series of resultant occurrences.
The butler fell in love with her and proposed mar
riage. So did the clergyman. So, ultimately, did
Captain Dorraston, one of the clergyman's friends
and guests. Her former husband. _Lord Huntworth,
hearing that she had inherited money, and
being himself ruined, sought for her, in her refuge,
and tried to renew their wedded association. At
moments the piece becomes almost tragic; at most
times, however, It ambles in sunshine and sparkles
with crisp dialogue and airy levity. Miss Hilda
Spong and Mr. Mason put forth their powers of
simulation with extraordinary skill, spirit and
effect. The distinction and the piquancy that are
such prominent and charming attributes of Miss
Spong's acting made this Impersonation very
brilliant and winning. Mr. Mason gave a perfectly
truthful embodiment of the honest, rough, kindly,
blundering English soldier— the man who has little
or no tact, but who always does the right thing at
last. The character of Crayl, which promises well
at the start, dwindles to nothing at the climax.
Mr. Finney gave a crude suggestion of delirious
inebriety. Mr. W. F. Owen was warmly welcomed
and applauded as a poker-backed butler. There
were many curtain calls, and the play seems likely
to run through the holidays. W. W.

Let It be the mission of our New-England Society,
if it have no other, to reawaken in this community
that God fearing. God trusting spirit which ani
mated that noble ancestry of ours, some even of
that intolerence which will not endure shams and
humbugs, some hereditary courage to march
apain?t the Pequots of our time, who stand in
savage obstruction to the progress of civilization
The toast to the President of the United States
was drunk standing
Professor E H. Grigs*, speaking to the toast
"The New-England Intellect." said the world was
constantly face to face with new problems. In the

SAYS ANGLO-SAXONS HAVE A COMMON INTEREST
IN HISTORIC PLACES.
There was a meeting of the Society for the
Preservation of Scenic and Historic Places and
Objects h*»ld last night at the rooms of the Archi
tectural League, Fifty-seventh-Bt. and Broadway.
Andrew H. Green, president of the society, deliv
ered an address, in which he made an eloquent
plea for the preservation of the Riant trees of
California and the preservation of the beauty of
Niagara Falls and the Great Lakes, which, he said,
were being diverted to commercial uses to such a
large extent that their natural beauty was being
destroyed. He also advocated the preservation of
thp battlefields of the State and places of historic
interest in other States, such as the Palisades. In
Mrs. M. Fay Pelrce, president of the Women's
Auxiliary of the Society, made an especial appeal
for the preservation of Fraunce's Tavern, in
Broad-st. She said they had tried to buy the site,
but had failed, as the owner resolutely refused to
sell. Th*y now advocated taking the block on
which it stands as a public park, and they propose
to get legislation for that purpose, as the only way
they could get possession of the tavern was by
condemnation proceedings. ,

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE. SATURDAY. DECEMBER 22. 1900.
MRS. WILLIAM P. FRYE.
Washington. Dec. 21 (Special).— Official Washing
ton was shocked to-day by the sudden death of
Mrs. Caroline Speare Frye. wife of Senator Will
iam P. Frye. president pro tern. of the United
States Senate, which occurred at the Hamilton
Hotel this morning at 9:30 o'clock. As a mark of
respect, almost without precedent, the Senate ad
journed immediately after hearing the chaplain's
eloquent reference to the presiding officer's be
reavement. The funeral will take place Sunday af
ternoon at Senator Frye's home, in Lewlston. Me.
The body was taken from Washington this after
noon on the Federal Express, accompanied by Sen
ator Frye and his two grandsons, William Frye
White and Wallace H. White, who were the only
relatives In the city.
Mrs. Frye had not been in good health for nearly
a year, and last Tuesday afternoon ehe suffered
an attack of acute Indigestion while in her car
riage, and had since that time been In the care of
a physician. Last summer she suffered somewhat
from heart trouble, but it was not believed that
there was any immediate danger. Mrs. Frye had
not been able to take much tiourishment since her
last attack of indigestion. This morning she was
so much improved that it was thought she would
soon be able to go out again. She had been talk
ing with her husband and grandsons a few minutes
before the end came. Numerous messages of con
dolence were received within a few hours after the
news of Mrs. Frye'a death became known, many
coming from the Senator's colleagues in Congress,
while telegrams were also received from all parts
of the country. Mrs. Frye was greatly admired
and beloved by all who knew her, and few public
men are so popular as her husband
Caroline Speare Frye was born in Rockland. Me.,
in 1833, being the daughter of Captain Speare, a
prominent citizen of the little New-England town.
She had one brother, William E. Speare, now a
member of the Boston bar. Two married daugh
ters survive her, Mrs. Helen Frye White, of Lewis
ton, Me., and Mrs. Alice Frye Briggs, of Auburn.
Me. Eleven grandchildren also are living Two
of her sisters live in Rockland.
Mrs. Frye had a singularly strong character,
which was manifest In her Bocial career In this city
for the last thirty years. If a representative of the
sturdy common sense of the women in official cir
cles were to be selected the honor would have been
hers without contest, both in deference to her per
sona! characteristics and her full experience in all
that would round off such qualities. Simplicity of
manner and good comradeship were conspicuous
traits in her disposition, and made her a most In
teresting companion at all times. Strongly attached
to her New-England affiliations, her closer asso
ciates were usually those from that section. Mrs.
Frye was a welcome an* honored guest every
where, and, while not personally- djevoted to society,
always pleased her friends by attending the Wospl
taiities at their homes every-' winter.

the famous pottery centres of Europe. It was he

T'nited States, and it was in his pottery at Trenton
that artistic modelling in clay was first attempted.
At the Centennial Exposition the exhibits from
the Ott & Brewer Pottery brought Trenton forward
into celebrity for the artistic products of the pot
teries there, and it is not too much to say that to
his artistic tastes, progressive spirit and tireless
energy the city of Trenton owes much for the
enviable position which it now holds In the pottery

THE PASSING THRONG.
"Th*r* has been a treat aron-nt sj attention of
late attracted to the college practice of hostile."
said A. M. Spencer, of Phltedel-
THI-: DECLINE phla. at the Hoffman House yes-
OF HAZING terday. "Tr menta of the
IN COLLEGES. Booz court of inquiry at West
Point have caused wide comment.
Hazing has died out to a great extent In college
life, and that which still xw* m Ii of a modified
variety that v.-ouid have found little or no favor
with the previous generation lam not sure that
hazing war not a good thin*. It (fll much to rub
the rough edges oft callow youth, and !• • \
freshness out of freshmen with the speed of light.
It also did much to display to his fellows the good
or bad points of a man, and many a youth's stand-
Ing among his college mates has been fixed dur
ing his college career by the temper or lack of It
that he displayed while being hazed. But boys will
be boys, and in each other's society one will
try to outshine the other. This characteristic, when
it came to hazing, led the hazers to go too far
with the hazee. and sooner or later to damage a
man to such an extent as to lead the faculty to
take drastic action. This has been the history of
hazing in all the great colleges, and in all doing
too much to the hazed has finally brought the
practice to an end.
"To strip a man, paint him a delicate pea green
and exhibit him in a glass case to admiring upper
classmen is amusing, but when that paint sinks
in and poisons it Is likely to cause grief. That
marked the ending of hazing in one of the big
four colleges. Throwing a man into a well and
compelling him to sit astride the bucket for sev
eral hours marked Its close in another. And so
it went on. Occasionally very funny things oc
curred. In one of the great collegiate societies
the new members must give themselves up for
one week to the will of another, and do that oth
er's bidding, be it what It may. When I was In
college— so long ago, alas! that the old fashioned
big copper cent was still in circulation— we had
one of those unfortunate candidates with us one
night. We were standing in the lobby of a hotel,
when his mentor fished one of those giant copper
disk* from his pocket and handed It to him, say
ing, 'Here. I'm tired of carrying this around. Go
get me a check for It.' ¦
"The unfortunate candidate accepted the coin
and disappeared. In a moment he was back, but
still with the coin, explaining that
ARGUMENTS they would not give him a check
FOR AND for it. 'I did not ask you whether
AGAINST they would check It or not.' was
THE the cold response. 'I told you to
PRACTICE. get a check for It. Now. go and
do it.' The other's face fell, but
as there was nothing else for It he meekly and
obediently went off on his master's bidding. This
time he reappeared even more quickly, but he went
by our group on the run and made for the open
street at top speed. Behind him was the cause— a
large red headed belligerent Irishman, armed with
an umbrella. The first application for a check
had amused him, the second he was trying to re
sent as a persona! affront. The candidate escaped
without further injury than a complete loss of
breath. It used to hurt men with their college
mates to resent hazing. A son of one of our greatest
jurists when in college received warning that on th?
following night the hazers would visit him. When
they arrived they found him in bed. armed with a
heavy army Colt revolver and holding in leash an
ominous and bandy legged bulldog, with an under
shot jaw. which greeted them with blood curdling
growls. That hazing was postponed indefinitely,
but the man who resisted was boycotted by both
the upper class men and the members of his own
class when the story got about. The practice has
all but died out now, and it is probably as well,
for death and lasting Injury have more than once
resulted from It, and nothing could be worth that.
A professor in a Southern college was once killed,
you know, while atempting to Interfere with a
hazing. Nothing could, of course, be worth that,
and it is better for it to die out entirely than to
run the risk of fatality. Yet, on the other hand,
when kept within bounds it did good to the men,
teaching them self-reliance and quickly showing
the stuff of which new men were made. There Is
much to be said both pro and con on the question
