Works of Five Deceased Mem
bers of British Academy on View.
lAerogTim to The Tribune.]
London, via Glace Bay, N. S., Dec 30.
— The winter exhibition .at Burlington
House is a miniature Academy,, .en
'ins being filled wit7i works of five de
c sea members.
• Sir William Q. Orchardson's art is
represented by sixty-six portrait sub
jects, pictures and studi' s. The King
j has >nt 'Four Generations" "'•om Wind
sor Castle, and there are many exam
ples at the painter's uncompromising
British style of portraiture, pictures of
i Henry Rivler, Lord ISlyth, Lord Kelvin,
j Sir James D<*..-ar, Sir John Leng and
Edwin A. Abbey being among- them.
' rv "re is a. so a full series of sV.M »t
1 .ctures. "The \">une Duke," from Mrs
Michie's collection, being conspicuous
among- them.
J. M. Stan is revealed as a great artist
i with wide rangre of talent. Among ex
amples of his sculpture are a bust of
Cecil Rhodes for Cape Town, a memorial
j bronze. Orpheus playing a lyre to two
j shepherds, and a lar^re puma carrying a
I macaw in its mouth. His nudes and
I poetic works display a perfection of
! draftsmanship, and his animal pictures
are exceedingly spirited.
W. P. Frith is represented by "The
Railway Station." a composition as well
known as "Derby Day," and by "Life at
the Seaside," from Buckingham Palace,
• and other subject pictures.
R. W. Macßeth's most brilliant color
. pieces are supplemented by a large as
1 sortment of etchings and watercolors.
David Farqueharson is represented by
large canvasses of Cornish coast scenes
and Scottish landscapes.
J. P. Heseltine, Mrs. Michie and A. C

MRS. W. G. BROWM~RETiRES
Mrs. de Rivera Supreme in Hotel
for Working Girl's Board,
"I haven't anything: to do wilh any row.
I don't know anything: about It. But let me
tell you confidentially" . That is what
every member of the hoard of # trustees of
the Hotel for Working Girls, opened by the
New York City Federation' of Women's
Cl lbs at No. 462 West 22d street two years
ago. says when she is asked if Mrs. Will
iam Grant Brown has resigned from the
| secretaryship of the board, and If so, why
so.
Th» "Jet me tell you confidentially" al
ways prefaces some remarks about a piece
| of poetry written by Mr?. John Francis
Youger and read at a dinner given by what
was called the Mrs. Brown faction soon
after Mrs. Belle de Revlra defeated Mrs.
| Brown for the presidency of the "Fed."
I two years ngo.
Mrs. de Rivera has not forgotten that
piece of poetry, and when Mrs. Brown was
made secretary of the hotel board, which
; was only ten days ago. she wrote to the
. board, saying she could not continue its
j chairman "under the present state of af
fairs."
She didn't say that Mrs. Brown was the
"present state of affairs," but Mrs. Brown
j took it so. It is said, and called on Mrs. de
, Rivera to suggest that if she wanted her.
; Mrs. Brown, to fepign she had better write
! a letter to that effect. Mrs. de Rivera, how
| ever, declined to be more explicit.
But Mrs. Brown, to make everything
smooth, has resigned. She said so last
j iif^ht. And the board is regretting "the
I tempest in the teapot," and outsiders are
wondering lust how much it has to do with
the election the "Fed." has next February.
NOT GENUINE, CRITICS *? \Y
Dutch Authorities Declare Van (to;, en
To Be an Imitation.
Teh testimony of art experts taken at
The Hague in the suit brought in this city
by Dr. John E. Stillwell against Emll
Pacully, a Germ- art dealer, was filed
yesterday In the office of the County Clerk.
The allegation v.t -• that paintings Pacully
sold to the plain for several tnousand
dollars were not old masters, as repre
sented. The testimony taken abroad bore
out the allegation of Dr. StillweH. espe
cially so far as one canvas was concerned.
Pacully had represented it as by Van
Goyen, but it wa* pronounced by four men
who examined it an imitation.
The men at The Hague who testified were
Dr. Cornelius 11. De Groat, Abraham
Bredius. William Martin and ('. K. de
Wild. They were examined by the secre
tary of the American Legation at The
Hague. '
Bredius, who formerly was adviser of the
Royal Picture Gallery, said the alleged Jan
Van Goyen was a clever imitation. Dr. De
Groot, director of the print room of the
Royal Picture Gallery, said that the paint
ing Pacully asserted was a Van Goyen was
painted about 1560, while the period of the
Uutch artist was from 1556 to l*. r -C. Dr. De
Groot is the author of a book on the work
of Van Goyen. The other critics were as
positive that the painting was not genuine.

NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1910.
PRAISE FOR HUMPERDINCK
Host of Admirers at Dinner for
German Composer.
"OrZRA CENTRE OF WORLD"
Guest of Evening Says He Was
Glad "Koenigskinder" First
Saw Light Here.
With "Hoch— dreimal h.»cV:" and clinking
of gla.*s«»p. Knselbert rlumperdlrick was
reeted lar,t night by trie Uolvimians, who
gave a dinner for him at the Hotel Astor.
Behind a golcVn lyre and a wealth of roses
and under the German and American flags
the composer oi" "TCoenigFkhider" sat beam
ing while the . i makers threw bouquets of
German polysyllables at hi ? gentle head.
It was in courtesy to the musician that
most of th speakers used his own tongue,
and it was in courtesy to him that the
Sehlaraffla. abandoned their own dinner to
him and joined forces with the Bohemians
In a hearty Teutonic love feast.
Herr HumperdJnck said, half in English
and half in Cci nan. 'hat. he was glad' that
the first performance of "Koenigskinder"
was in the Metropolitan Opera House,
which he hoped some day would be th" 1
opera centre of the 'world.
".Ml are nomirtg here," he said. "First
it was the great artists, and now the com
posers begin to see, that you love music, and
know it."
Some of the speakers were musical
critics, and EL E. Krehbiel Bald:
"L<et me tell you now. honestly, t'.at I
never was prouder of my associates — the
guild of critics — than when I read ev«>ry
parer published in New York the day after
the opera wa? produced. I did not know
beforehand how many ideals so many dif
ferent men mieht have. But they all apre^c]
on one fact — that at last and again we had
h work that represented pure, lovely beauty.
They call me the dpan. but if I have chil
dren in the press that know such beautiful
tbinp* wh*»n they hear them. I am willing
to £<»t old and accept th<> responsibilities
of ape."
Walter Damrosch stated that he was
temporarily upset by the disappearance and
recovery of those opera scores, but he has
tened to say that, while Richard Wagner
was a true king of music, the kind, unas
suming Humperdinck, who had sat at the
monarch's feet, was truly a child of the
king.
Henry T. Finek recalled that Humper
dinck had once been Wagner's amanuensis
arid had copied the score of "Parsfal."
Other speakers were Dr. Max Halperson,
Dr. Maurice Baumfelt a*d Ern«-st yon Wol
zogen.
Jadlowker, who created the role of the Kins
in the new opera, sent word that he had to
leave town, but Otto Goritz. who sang the
role of the Pedler. was at tbe ainnf-r, and
he praised Humperdinck in his deep throat
ed voice. Alhert Reiss, who was the Broom
maker, sang, and Karl Jrtrn sang also, giv
ing the "S«-h!araffen" sons for 1 is society.
Reuben (Joldmark was the toastmaster.
Among those who helped to applaud the
German composer were Arturo Toscanini,
Alfred Hertz. Paolo Gailico. Sigmund Her
zog:. Victor Herbert, Frank Damrosch.
Arnold Volpe. Dr. Joseph Jaeoby. Kahan
Franko. Paul Foerster, May Spierinj?,
Baron Paul Vietlnghoff, J. W. Cassell and
Rafael Joseffy.
SMIRNOFF MAKES DEBUT
Russian Tenor Sings the Duke
in Verdi's "Rigoletto."
Verdi's "Rigoletto" was the ope: chosen
last night as the vehicle for the American
riebut of Dimitri Smirnoff, the Russian
tenor, v. r.o next Saturday Is to sing Romeo
to tn«* Juliet of Miss Geraldine Farrar.
Mr S :.: iioii showed last night that he la
the j .ss.-ssor of a fine figure and a youth
ful face. He may show further excellent
quall+ies in other operas, but aside from a
certain feeling in his singing they were
not over-apparent last night. How much
was due to the nervousness of a first ap
pearance it is, of course. Impossible to say,
hut there was little distinction in his acting
or sensuous beauty in his Kinging.
Mme. Lipkpwska was girlish and appeal
ing as Gilda. which is always gratifying in
that part. Her voice, too, was pure in
quality. But her skill in singing will prob
ably increase with increasing years. Mr.
Amato gave an adequate performance
dramatically of the title role, and his voice
is always i delight. Mr. Podesti conducted
acceptably.
And. after poor Gllda's woes had ended
and the Duke- had sung of the fickleness
of woman, the Russian dancers danced.
There is no fickleness In the Interest that
the public takes in these wonderful artists.
There probably will be none as long as
Miss Pavlowa swims out into the calcium
moonlight, a swan more graceful than
was ever cradled in lake or river of this
world.
HELD FOR THEFT OF OPERAS
Higgins Charged with Larceny —
Police Praised for Arrest.
Den&iß Hiegin.--. of No. 228 Kast <Mth
street, who when arrested on Thursday
night said his name was John Rea. after
he had returned the- operas submitted in
the $10,0Oi prize contest of the Metropoli
tan Opera House, which were stolen from
an Adams Express Company's wagon on
Sat unlay night, was arraigned before
Magistrate Pteinert in the Yorkville court
yesterday morning. A charge of larceny
was pressed by James IfcCombe. agent of
the Adams Kxpress Company branch, at No.
1257 Third t.venue. Hlggtas was held in
SMI bail for examination n'tt Tuesday.
The Metropolitan Opera Company gave
out th ■ following statement yesterday
relat!\e to the stolen scores:
"Through the skill and diligence .if the
police the two loat opera scores, submitted
by composers using the noms de plume of
"CMamecaro* and 'Raefello,' which were
Stolen from the wagon of the Adams Ex
press Company last. Saturday, have been
recovered. Tbe sealed envelopes containing'
the r<-al names of the composers using"
those noms de p!un:e have not ?«eer>.
opened."
When Walte- Damroßcb was seen last
night he said:
"1 am exceeding'^' pleased over the re
turn of the twr, scores and the arrest of
the man who is charged with the theft.
There wer«- only tw.) scores lost, though
several newspapers laid that there were
four. This mistake was caused by the re
porter read'ng both the German and Kng
lish titles to 'he operas, ;ind counting them
thus as four works."

IHE DRAMA
Henry Arthur Jones's New Play
at Nazimova's Theatre.
The title, "We Can't Be as Bad as All
i That," Is expressive enough. It tells
'you at once what to expert, the author's
j• • perier.ced hai. being that of Henry
! Arthur Jones. A quotation from George.
Meredith appears on the play bill: '"You
I many distinguish them by ' a favorite
'. phrase, 'Surely we are not so bad!' and the
remark, 'If that is human nature, save
jus from it!' As i!" it could be done!" Mr.
; Jones may think it can't be done, and on
j the whole he's right, albeit be sends the
! two leading characters of his play to South
j America so that they be saved from "it,"
' quite the last place i i the world, you might
think, where human nature of an unlovely
j kind ,ay be lost to fight and influence.
But. at any rate, it won't be. a repetition
of tliat type of disagreeable human nature
which makes up the country house parties
I of the Quarnb'y Royals of England at the
I opening of the second tenth of the-twen
i tieth century. One would hope net. For
at Q'-amby Royal, I^ord Carnforth's place
in - — shire, the house party is com
; posed of persons who for the most part
I find it as difficult to keep out of the police
j reports as if they were young Napoleons
Sof Finance oi Black Hand gentry in this
! bleak New World. One of them steals* a
necklace, another is described by ah elderly
j lady as un uncertain gentleman, who
I "never knows where his bedroom ft;; he's
j always raking mistakes"; nearly all the
j guests i.. irder reputations and the one
j real man of the lot begins to long, as well
i he may. "for the company of the black
| guards and scoundrels he left in Argen
! tina." As for the woman who is consid
j ere* 1 by this cheerful group to be the worst
! of the lot. the target for all their poisoned
arrows of scandal, she is really one of the
| best ■ women in a world largely Inhabited
iby human nature. No -wonder the man
from Argentina marries : her and carries
[ her back to that distant land. The Infer
[ ence, of course, Is that in the rich old
garden we rail England there is no place
for a flower whose bloom has been touched
by the breath of scandal. The inference
j may not be Justified, bur there it I?, and
you may make the most of if. •
At. Quarnby Royal Mrs. Engaine. a rich
young English widow, who has lived ten
years in the United States, is. with her
stepdaughter Violet, a guest of Lord and
Lady Carnforth. Lord Carnforth, it Is
quite refreshing to add. is quite respectable.
When found in a contemporary play a re- j
spectable nobleman should be "made a
note of. " But Lord Carnforth is not only j
respectable, he is colorless. He is the sort !
of person that heaven, or the other place, I
puts into the world to be fooled by his j
wife and other people's wives and hus
bands. He doesn't approve of his wife,
wherein he is sensible; he doesn't approve
of her guests, but he permits her and them
to make a gambling shop of his house and
to incur big debts over big stakes. There j
comes Sir Ralph Newel!, Lady Carnforth's j
cousin, home from the Argentine. He in- !
troduces the beautiful Mrs.. Engaine and I
her stepdaughter. He has met. them on the j
North Atlantic voyage. Lady Carnfnrth's i
brother, a Mr. Polks Bissett, a bounder j
without a shred of decency, determines to
marry the girl for her fortune's sake. In
cidentally he steals her mother's pearl
necklace. He Is hard up. An elderly
male gossip named Topham Bargeny
recognizes in the lovely rich widow
a Nora Shard who, a decade ago, ran away
with Harold Furnival, an unhappily mar
ried man eminent in political and social j
life. Furnival, a day or two after the j
elopement, was killed in an accident. Miss j
Shard, after a hurst of publicity,, coroner's '
inquest, illustrated papers end so on, dis- :
appeared. There is - no mistake: Mrs. En
gaine is Nora Shard. In America she be- i
came a nurse. A millionaire patient mar- j
ried her and died. Now then, declares that j
blossom of the aristocracy Lady Carnforth. j
now then. Mrs. Engaine. permit my !
brother, Fuiks Bissett. to marry your step- j
daughter, or I will expose you as the Nora
Shard who ruined Harold Furnival. Mrs.
Engaine declines the bargain. Sir Ralph
Newell proposes to her. She tells him who
she is. Sir Ralph was Furnival's dearest
friend. Mrs. Kngaine's revelation bewilders
him. He must have time to think. How
can she Jove him, having loved Furnival as
she did?
"You don't understand," she moans. "I
think every unman has two hearts to give—
a girl's and a woman's. 1 gave him my
girls heart. But T have a woman's heart
to give you. ftn not ihe girl who loved
Harold Furnival. Oh, the woman's love is
the best. Won't you take it?"
He leaves her, but returns next day. He
has beard tbe cries of the gossipa. Their
Sickening cackle drives him to her, to pro
tect her. He sees her as she is, in truth a
very noble woman, the one white soul
among this tainted crew. And so their
story has a hp.ppy ending.
It was quite as much the art of the
actress a.s the ait of the playwright that
won from the audience a splendid tribute
of applause. Miss Katharine Kaelred re
vealed a rare and tender quality of emo
tional power last night. She was qu;et.
restrained, delicate, where actresses are
usually noisy, demonstrative, even gro
tesque. She was touching, sweetly pathetic,
yet always dignified and strong. Indoed,
her work in this play deserves, and will
receive, far more consideration than can be
given to it in the rush of a midnight chron
ic!?. Suffice it to aay for the moment that
Miss Kaelred Is a refreshing surprise. It
the dramatist triumphed, so did she.
The play will probably be considered the
strongest that Henry Arthur Jones has put
forward since "Mrs. Dane's Defence."
There is a striking scene between the two
women, Mrs. Engaine and La«iy Carnforttt,
in the second act. But the best scene in
the play, best in conception and in play
craft, is that between Sir Kalph and Mrs.
Engaine, a scene in which, if ever scene
revealed it. a woman's soul is shown.
Mr. Nye Chart, a new comer to these
shores made a good impression as Sir
Ralph. The other parts were well, if not
brilliantly, sustained. A later ieview will
dwell upon passages and points which must
be omitted here. The play will win a lib
eral measure of public attention. And Miss
Kaelred will win a conspicuous place on
the stage. A. W.
