ENGLISH ART SALES.
Rnrnances of Auction Room--Amer
ican Investments in Eyiglish Masters.
L->ndon. June 12.
The National Gallery has its romances ln the
Ftrange adventures of pictures. There is the
famous Van Eyck. "Jan Arnoldflni and His
Wife." whlch was a Bruges harber-surgeon's
clft to a Queen Regent; there are the treasures
of the palaees, works like Van Dyck's portrsit ol
Charles I and Correggios "Mercury Instructlng
Capid in the Presence of Venus." whlch were
gold by the Cromwellians for a*song and bought
back after many vicissltudes at hlgh cost; there
ls the "Parish Clerk" which Gainsborough gave
to an honest carrier; and there ls the sumptu
ous "Family of Darius." which Veronese painted
during his convalescence ln an Italian vllla and
]eft behind in a'rknowledgment of the kind
treatment received from his host?a masterplece
for which over $68,000 was eventually pald.
Christie's Is also a fascinating realm of romance,
where neglected pictures from the backstairs of
country houses are auctloned off for thousands
of guineas. or drinkir.g cups for which sixteenth
century craftsmen wer" pald in shillings for their
crudpery are sold for more than SS1.000 as orna
rr'nts fc-r American dlning rooms. What grira
eport there must be for ghosts, if that bustling
salesroom ln King-st., where a smooth faced.
dry voiced auctioneer keeps the run of the
guineas and occasionally taps the desk with a

How eloqu?nt would fce the spirit rappings of
George Morland. if these could be heard when
fcj?5 works are heid up before a fasbionable
throng on Saturday afternoons and the rlval
dealers begin to compete for theml His stern
father's prediction that he would either be
fcangel nr would turn out a genius can be fa
voraWy interpreted when a little work like "The
Dancmg Dogs," for which he was glad to take
15 guineas. now conimands a buzz of ad
miration at Christie's and 4,000 guineas as a
record price. Genius seems to have won the
dsy when a hasdiy painted sketch of an itiner
ant showman making a monkey and some dogs
circ*- in front of a cottage door has so high a
val?at:.m placed upon it: and the final Victory
le not furprising when Morland's father,
rnoth-r and grandfather were palnters before
him. and he came naturally by his vivacity of
ctyie. htf bold craftsmanship and his habits of
obs^rvation. Yet when that work was painted
the artist was 3 snendthrift and a drunkard,
working in debtors' prisons and sponging
hc^ts. carousir.g with boon companions when
ever a dealer would advance him a few guineas
and plunging from one excess or vagary into
aroiher. Who could have ventured to forecast
his ultimate triumph as an artist on that gloomy
day uh*n h<? was buried in an obscure church
yard on Hempstead Road, a drunkard who had
always been in debt? Yet it has come at last;
and In consequence of the high prices at Chris
tie's for "The Dancing Dogs" and "Higglers in
the Morning.'' all the Morlands, with which town
and country houses are well stocked, have in
cretsed heavily in vaiue.
There is also a rising market for Raeburns.
The Scottish Van Dyck married a lady of fort?
une when she was twenty-two, and never knew
what it was to struggle for a living, his success
as a portrait palnter being unlnterrupted and
complete, first in Edinburgh. and finally in Lon?
don. He was an lndustrious palnter, who was
content w ith receiving small prices for his work.
snd when he died a large eollection of his por
traits were kept together by his executors. This
eollection of forty-nine portraits was sold ln
1*77. half a century after his death. for an ag
gr?Erate r-um of ?6,000. On Saturday, when
Lord Twesdmouth's pictures were dispersed at
auction. one of these portraits, that of Lady
Raeburn. a charming combination of whltes anj
browns. was sold for 8.700 guineas. For this
portralt and another of Sir Henry Raeburn him?
self. ln dark coat. yellow waistcoat and white
i-tock, 1.499 guineas was paid thirty years ago.
Ther" was i slight decline in values when the
pair were resold ln 1887 for 1.320 guineas. but
cn Saturday. when a new standard was estab
lifhed. the two portraits between them brought
I&200 guineas. having advanced tenfold in
elciu-en years. The other Raeburns from
Erook House were sold at high prices. The por?
tralt of Sir Walter Scott, whlch was once in the
poFsession of the poet Campbell, ran up from
2?v? guineas, tho previous auction prlce. to 1,000
guineas, and the portrait of Mrs. Oswald of
Auchincruive, a white robed beauty, with a
shapely neck and gold earrlngs, for which 2<H)
guineas was paid in 1S87, was fiercely com
peted for and finally sold for 3.600 guineas. This
was not the good lady of Auchincruive whose
fan?ral pageantry drove Burns out ol a com
fortable inn on a frosty night and inspired the
gloomy ode. "Dweller ln yon dungeon dark:"
but lt was the falr Lucy Johnstone, whose
beauty and graces dazzled the poet so com
pietHy that he at flrst resolved to say nothing
at all about her "In despair of saylng anything
sdequate." and finally wrote the charming poem
"O wat ye wha's in yon toun" ln praise of her
loveliness. The sweet lady's portrait is now
eighteen times as valuable as lt was eighteen
years ago. and has kept company as long as
possible with Lady Raeburn. who headed the
advance in prices and kept it. Lady Raeburn
was the painter's good genius from the moment
when, as the fascinating wldow of Count Leslie.
she set her cap for him, and even as she enabled
him With her money to take Sir Joshua's advice
and to prepare himself for his career by two
years' study in Italy, so also by this portrait
she llfts the values of all his works and places
them close behind the Gainsboroughs and
Reynoldses as priceiess masters ot the Engusn
school of portraiture.
Other plcturea sold at Christie's dleclosed the
same upward tendency in values and the con

dealers' speculatlons. Hogarth'a "Assembly at

are attended by many peers and owners of pri?
vate collections in London. They are interested
spectators. for when the Gainsnoroughs, Mor?
lands. Hoppners and Romneys reach record
prices at auction. thelr own heirlooms in town
and country houses are stiffening in value, and
their art purchases become remunerative invest?
ments. American art collectors are not buying
so many French, Dutch and Italian pictures as
they were, and there never before was so good a

CHURCHES MAY MERGE.
More Talk of Uniting Fifth Avenue
and Epiphany Congregations.
In spite of summer inactlvity in religious eircles.
promlnent members of Baptist ehurches are dls- j
cussing denominatlonal conditions on Manhattan i
Island A speclal committee of the Flfth Avenue i
Baptist Church went informally to the policy com?
mittee of Epiphany Baptist Church within the last
few days and propo?. d a plan of consolldatlon. The ,
proposed plan was discussed at a meeting of the
Epiphany eongregation. held last Wednesday even?
ing. and it developed wide differences.
The proposal made by the Fifth Avenue Church j
committee was the sale of the property in 46th-st.. j
west of 5th-ave. Thls property is worth from
$350,000 to $.00,000. It will be remembered that lt
was condemned some time since. and the church
cannot now be used. Upon the sale of the 46lh-st.
property the '-an.mittee proposes to endow the
West Side work. consisting of Armitage Chapel, of
which the Rev. W. S. Rlchardson ls pastor, and the
Neighborhood House, in 10th-ave. Those who op
pose the plan do so because they object to being
wiped out and their authority taken from them.
Epiphany Church is suffering from changes ln
population ln Madlson-ave.. and has repeatedly
tried to sell. Two or three years ago a sale of the
property. it is said, failed to go through only be?
cause the prospectlve purchaser could not command
the cash. and forfeited a deposit. From the Fifth
Avenue Church people lt is learned. however. that
the Flfth Avenue onrer of funds did not faU to
have welght. It is the argument of the Fifth Ave?
nue committee that the consolldatlon will save the
erection of a new plant. and wiil furr.ish a church
readv for worship when the Flfth Avenue congre?
gation returns in the autumn.
The protest against consolidation eomes from
Baptist leaders who declare that the Baptist de
nomination cannot afford to lose a church on Man?
hattan Island. They say that ehurches have mo^el |

FAVORS REMOVAL POW?R.
PAGE ON HOOKER CASE.
Committee Will So Report?Justice
Likehf to Escape, However.
Senator P&ge. a member of the judieiary com?
mittee now considering the law and precedent ln
removal cases, after three days' study of the
case in Albany. said yesterday that he was now
satisfied that the committee would report in
favor of legislative power to remove Justice
Hooker. Senator Page said:
My examination has conflrmed my view that
the legislature has the constitutional power
necessary for removing a justice. and that this
power was conferred upon it for the preclse
purpose of having a check upon the judieiary.
I believe that fhis constitutional provlsion con
fers the right of removal upon the legisiature
for whatever cause two-thirds of its member
ship mav deem adequate. I found in looking
into the matter that as far back as the Consti?
tutional Convention of 1821. where the thing
was dl3cussed. many illuminating points were
there brought out that confirm my position.
Senator Brackett. who is chalrman of the
Ji.diciary Committee. worked with Senator
Page yesterday. Senator Brackett took the
stand last YVednesday that the committee ought
to have time to investlgate the whole constitu?
Tt ls said now that Senator Brackett is in
clined to believe that the constitutional power
of the legislature to act is clear. If Senator
Brackett has been led to this conclusion by hls
examination of the law this means that his
committee. which voted 7 to 6 for delay last j
week. will now report the Hooker charges from i
committee on Wednesday, and this will mean <
Immediate legislative action on them. beglnning
with the service of the charges on Justice ;
Hooker. Speaker Nixon said last week that he |
belleved that if the committee should report !
them on Tuesday. it was the purpose of Justice j
Hooker's counsel to accept service and declare i
themselves ready to proceed on Thursday.
As to the result of the trial. there seems to j
be a general agreement among all familiar with j
the situation at Albany that Justice Hooker j
will escape. possibly by the vote of a majority |
of the legislators vindicating him. but more j
probably through the lack of votes in the Sen- }
ate for removal. It is conceded that nothing j
but a material change of front in the ranks of j
the Democratic Senators will make his removal ,
possible, for thlrty-four vote6 are necessary for ,
removal, and two Republican Senators are in ,
Europe and one seriously ill. Moreover, Senators j
Fancher. Davis and Fechter. from the western
part of the State, are almost certain to vote in
favor of the accused justice.
Senator Saxe's declaration that he was op
posed to removal even if the legislature had
power because of ihe precedent involved pro
voked a 3harp critlcism in a statement issued
bv counsel for the Statr Bar Association. which
called attention to such an attitude as indicat
ing an evldent intentlon to "ignore an oath of
offlce." Senator Saxe responded with a declara
, tion that he belioved a constitutional amendment
i was necessary to confer the power required for
such action. "This view was directly in conflict
With that contained ln the statement made by
the counsel for the State Bar Association, in
which the constitutional powers of the legisla?
ture to act ln such case were outlined la de
tatl. - .
The main question now being consldered by
those who are attempting to forecast the action
of the legislature is why the Judieiary Committee
should have delayed the trial lf it intended to

lative quarters to prolong the extra session
until public sentiment becomes so aroused over
the Equitable affa-lr as to make Its submlssion
to the legislature inevitable.
