Th« walls of the Academy are well stock.d
with conventional portraits like Mr. Ouless's Sir
Walter Stanhope and Sir Donald Curric. Sir
Luke Fildes's Lady Royds, Mr. Waterhouse's
Lady Violet Henderson, Mr. Cope's Bishop of
Colchester and Mr. Frank Dicksee's Marchioness
of Camden. Mr. Sargent has not revolutionized
portrait painting in England. The veterans so
on in the traditional way, with neither will nor
power, to alter their methods, and in some In
stances conservatism is an unmixed gain. Sir
William Orchardson will always be the most
British of portrait painters, and when he can
produce so characteristic and uncompromising
a work as Mrs. "Wood, in nurse's cap and apron,
arranging flowers against a light brown back
ground, no art lover would wish for any altera
tion of style. Nor is there ground for complaint,
if Sir Laurence Alma-Tadema has failed to
idealize himself in the downright, solidly painted
portrait of himself for the Accademia Komana
di St. Luca. Sir Hubert yon Herkomer. in paint
ing the Bishop of London in purple, with large
gold cross, has revealed the ecclesiastic rather
than the man, and that is a pity. Mr. Solomon
has produced a decorative panel ratner than a
portrait group in his arrangement of whites and
reds for Mrs. Alfred Mond, and there is origi
nality in the treatment, while there is nothing
• novel in Mr. Riviere's portrait of the Countess of
Sefton in evening dress, with her hand on a
large dog. Mr. George Henry, who is not im
proving his reputation as a portrait painter, now
' favors greens rather than blues, and has one
fine study of silk and ermine. There is a por
trait of King Edward for the Liverpool Cham
ber of Commerce, by Mr. P. Tennyson Cole, but
! it is not an impressive work. Mr. Bacon's por
j trait of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman has as
I little inspiration.
Apart from th* portraits there is a meagre
i supply of exhibition work? for the entertainment
i of the crowds passing the gates. There are clas-
s ical anecdotes in paint, such as Mr. Riviere's
"Androclus and the Lion" and Mr. Waterhouse's
"Apollo and Daphne," and there axe old-fash
ioned story pictures like Mr. Marcus Stone's
"Yes or No." with the lady looking straight at
I the audience like a little actress and the lover
with bis heart in his mouth. There are also alle
gories with the nude unveiled, like Mr. Solomon's
! Eve swooping down upon bewildered Adam:
more complex themes like Mr. Bundy a "Sands
j of Life." illumined with a lurid light: dramatic
i scenes such as Mr. John Collier's "Sentence of
! Death" and Mr. Seymour Lucas's "Silenced,"
! and historic pageants like Mr. Crofts's -'Surren
! der of York to the Roundheads." and modern
| functions like Mr. Hall's "Investiture of th»

DOOM OF COBDENISM
English lAberali.sm Opening the
Way for Tariff Reform.
London, May •">.
The uncompromising supporters of pure Cob
denism arc much displeased and concerned over
tin- unmistakable present trend of politic.-. "The
Spectator" is their oracle, and it has lost faith
in the Liberal government as the custodian of
the Cobdenite Ark of the Covenant and the eco
nomic traditions. It does not conceal Its satis
faction over the defeat of Mr. Churchill in Man
chester, aml urges Unionist Free Traders to
vote against him in Dundee unless they can ob
tain from him an explicit pledge that the gov
trnment will not commit the country to protec
tion. Cobdenites are warned that the Liberal
ministry is bent ui">n assuming Immense liabili
ties for old a^>- pensions and compromising na
tional finance so hopelessly that the way will be
opened for tariff reform; ;iud Sir John Brunner's
demand for the abandonment of the laisser faire
policy la interpreted as practical evidence that
the state Is. !•• encourage and foster rommerce
ar.il industries by bounties, nationalization of
railways or otherwise, at the expense of con
sumers and taxpayers. All these things are
held to imply betrayal of Cobdenism, and the
wrathful doctrinaires contend that they may as
well have Cnamberlainism at once.
It is interesting !■• observe how necessary is
the support of organized labor for either of the
rival fiscal policies. Mr. Chamberlain could not
convince the working people that tariff for
higher revenue, and especially preferential food
taxes for the benefit of the colonies, would be
helpful to them. Consequently the country

GRAND OPERA AT CONEY ISLAND.
Not to be outdone by YUm Yor!;, <"oney Island
will have grand opera of its own. and to-day the
first performance of "Faust" will be produced in
electricity when William A. Ellis will open hit
"Hereafter" spectacle in Dreamland. The new
show is the bißgest of all the Dreamland spectacles
and takes up one-third of the place. A chorus of
two hundred men and women has been trains! to
depict every detail of Gounod's opera in pantomime
and seven thousand incandescent lights are used to
give every stage action.
While spectacles have been produced at Coney-
Island e%-ery year, the "opera in twenty minutes"
will eclipse any scenic shows heretofore produced.
Three buildings whore "The End of the World"
and "The Feast of Belshazzar" shows were located
last year have been torn down to make it possible
for Mr. Ellis to build one l.lg auditorium w!/re the
entire show can l>e given. Unlike other show?,
"The Hereafter" will be without scene shifting.
After the first scenes the lights are so operated that
the next scene is thrown on the same canvas. The
last part of the spectacle shows the Brockenfels.
with Bfepblsto and Faust Ptanding on the edge of
the upper cliff. It is here that Mr. p;iH9 will show
on* of the most striking pictures of horror and
siiff-rins; that has ever been produced.
LAST WEEK AT THE HIPPODROME.
With Monday night's performance the Hippo
drome begins the fina! week of its long and suc
cessful season. While announcing no pfana for
next September, Messrs. Shubert and Anderson
declare that the twelve performances of this week
will be the last opportunities to witness "The
Battle of Port Arthur" and the big spectacles now
on the present bill. This realistic picture of the
world's greatest battle of modem days has thrilled
and won the admiration of thousands. The stir
ring war scenes are followed by the musical me
lange incident to "Lady Gay's Garden Party."
with its merry songs and heats of dancers. Th»
circus, with its twelve big acts, is still a feature.
This is followed by Onaip, the upside-down pianist,
whose trick has created a sensation. The ballet
went heavily against him at the last general
elections, and the Liberal government comes in
as the trustee of Free Trade. The Asqulth
Ministry now finds working England equally
critical and suspicious. Can old age pensions
and other social reforms be financed under Free
Trade? That 13 the question for which min
isters must provide a practical solution. If
there are no resources remaining under the pres
ent fiscal system for giving organized labor
what it wants, there is likely to be a rapid con
version of the masses to tariff reform. Ministers
perceive this, and are committed Irrevocably to
social reforms, which will involve a vast In
crease of national expenditures.
"While taxpayers are appalled by the prospect.
Free Traders are under no illusions respecting
the trend of government social legislation. They
fear that while it may help ministers to remain
in office by prolonging the coalition between
Liberalism and labor, it will inevitably lead to
a reversion to protection. A small beginning
may be made with pensions under the existing 1
tariff, but sooner or later there will be an en
largement of the system, and the money re
quired for it can come only through the broad-,
ening of the basis of taxation. The wedge may
not go far Into the green tree. It will be driven
deep into the dry tree. The cost of pensioning
the superannuated will increase with cumula
tive force from year to year as the list* are en
larged and the self-respect and thrifty habits of
the working class are undermined by the non
contributory system. If the bulk of the expense
falls upon local taxation, rate payers will be
heavily burdened, and income tax payers will be
in open revolt If they have to supply the annual
grants. Indirect taxation by means of a general
tariff will be the natural alternative for inade
quate sources of revenue under Free Trade
Liberalism, with its costly social reforms is
likely to bring about tariff reform with a rush
Old-fashioned Cobdenites, who hold and freely
express such views of the government's policies
and their probable results, are not satisfied with
illusive attempts of Liberal Journals to explain
away Sir John Banner's plea for government
action for the benefit of industries and com
merce. They consider that he was merely re- '
peating phrases of Mr. Lloyd-George, and that I
while, ]i» did not mention bounties for facilitat- j
ing production, exchange or export, he had in !
mind government intervention of some kind by
which artificial conditions would be created.
They hold that the interests of consumers will
not be promoted by the administration of law* i
in favor of producers and traders, and that th* j
cheapening of transport by the development of i
waterways and the nationalization of railways. !
or any other expedients for making Free Trad» i
more businesslike and wholesome, will b«> at th*
cost of the main body of taxpayers. Doctrinaires
reject these proposals as fatal compromises.
They insist that trade must be left to regulate
itself under private enterprise, free competition
and unrestricted imports. Any departure from
oldtime Cobdenlsm they consider protectionism
in a particularly mischievous and insidious form
They will not hear of so dishonorable a betrayal
of the Free Trad,- .ause! They assert with great I
force that it would be more reputable for the
Liberals to propose a constructive policy like
Mr. Chamberlain's for uniting the states of the
empire, defending the boom market, aupplyin*
British workers with employment and largely in
creasing the Treasury receipts than to stimulate
and foster industries by artificial ami co«tty
