New York Collection of the
Venetian Dealer, Signor
Cattadori, Is on View at
American Art Galleries
Textile Array Is Varied
Many Pieces Suitable for
the Typical Luxurious
American Interior Shown
By Royal Cortissoz
There is apparently no bottom to the
source from which American collectois
and decorators may go on drawing for
the embellishment of their houses.
Collection after collection is pul on
>.<le here ind an exccll :n1 average <
quality is steadilj nu ii tained. The
latest, now on view at the American
Art Galleries, is provided by Signor
t attadori, the Venetian dealer, who
thus disposes of the stock accumulated
in his Fifth Avenue establishment. II
is composed of about 700 objects, which
are to be sold through a.n- aftern ??
sessions, beginning next Wednesday.
In any body of antiquities like this
one there are, o? course, things which
stand by themselves, works of art
vhich have their own reasons for ex?
isting, but above all it is the decorative
motive vhich comes into the fore?
ground. And this is no long? r i
of bibelots alone. The characterist e
niece in the Cattadori collection is
something that can be built into an
.architectural ensemble. The sanctuar;.
screen and gates ?No. 718) provide an
opposite illustration. These webs o:
graceful design were forged by an
Italian ironworker of the fifteenth cen?
tury. He made them for a cardinal'3
l>rivate chapel. Now they come to the
Western world, fragments for the
nonce, which will presently fall into the
hands of some architect and be re
erected to take on a new lease of life
as parts of a constructive whole.
Artistic Vitality in "Junk"
It is this thread of what might be
ea?led a utilitarian purpose %hat runs
hrough the various collections of an?
tiquities offered here every season.
ending them a peculiar interest. What
is playfully called "junk" has an un?
questionable artistic vitality, thanks
both to its intrinsic qualities and to
the eclectic taste of our day. The fact
,s that the enthusiast for "period"
decoration may find here the' originals
for which he is often obliged to take
substitutes. Witness the pair of cande?
labra in gilded bronze from the Pa?
lazzo Doria (No. 607), two little gems
of Louis XVI metal work. They are
signed by the craftsman to whom they
owe their exquisite finish, but even
without the signature they would ob?
viously proclaim the elcgan?e of a
great French tradition.
All through the multifarious collec?
tion there are illustrations of the kind
of work we have especially in mind,
the work that one can see passing
easily?and permanently ? into the
typical luxurious American interior.
Sometimes it is only a picture frame,
like the sixteenth century Tuscan ex?
ample (No. 669), but what a handsome
picture frame it is! The furniture is
good, Italian and French, with a few
English specimens. It includes cabi?
nets and chests, consoles, tables and
chairs. And in the background hang
a number of admirable tapestries. The
array of textiles is varied and rich. It
embraces the usual collection of old
church vestments, fabrics easily turned
to decorative use.
Plastic and Pictorial Items
The plastic and pictorial items arc
of mixed character. The most at?
tractive of the sculptures is a terra
cotta relief (No. 615) of sixteenth cen?
tury Florentine origin, a Madonna in?
closed in a Delia Robbian frame. The
tundo is in no wise, a brilliant relic of
jts period, but it is not without charm,
and the frame is beyond doubt a good
one. There is an interesting "Venu3
Discovered," attributed to Collini (No.
613), and a relief in marble (No. 614)
turns up to remind us of Baccio Ban
dinelli, that rather hollow Florentine.
On the whole, the pieces in this de?
partment which are most beguiling
come from an earlier period. The wine
vase (No. 611), aseribed to the Graeco
Roman school of design, is a beautiful
bronze. The strongest of the paintings
is a fine "Virgin and Child" (No. 679),
given to Pietro Lorenzetti. The ascrip?
tion is not persuasive. One misses the
Sienese master's emotional depth.
Nevertheless, it is a lovely panel. Of
a very different order but character?
istic and amusing are two military
compositions by Giulio Romano (Nos.
538 and 539), and there is a group of
clever eighteenth century decorative
canvases, the kind in which architec?
ture supplies the prevailing motive.
The collection drifts from these ob?
jects into an extremely miscellaneous
atmosphere, an atmosphere of old
glass, of beautiful fans, of Italian,
Spanish and Flemish brass, of antique
linen and lace, of majolipa and so on.
It is indeed a veritable jumble of all
manner of things, but it has been ef?
fectively arranged, and a kind of unity
??merges from the heterogenous spec?
tacle. The saie should command at?

Jackie Coogaii. Five-Year
Interview Like an
Here to See His
Jackie Coogan, five years old and
newly famous as the ( harlie ("hap?n
"Kid," was at a distinct disadvantage :
' when interviewed in the Biltmore Hotel
. yesterday. It is bad enough to be in- ,
terviewed ?t five, anyway, but with a
long pair of shears snicking at his neck
ar.d hair falling in h:s eyes, what
chance had the littles; kind of kid, still
in Buster Browns..to defend himself?
However, smashing windoiv panes
;and falling over Charlie Chaplin's toes
innumerable times has made Jackie re?
sourceful, so he gayly thrust a tiny
: hand out of the barber's gown that
swallowed him and volunteered:
"Hullo! How d'ye do? You have
! good barbers in New York. This is the
nicest hair cut I ever got. AY hat do
you think, daddy?"
Daddy, being similarly ministered to
; i.n the next chair, agreed.
"I guess that's enough polish," con?
tinued Jackie,.as he tumbled out. of the
barber's big chair and marched forth,
: followed by a proud papa, a press
I agent, a reporter and 'the admiring
eyes of every one in the barber's shop.
Being a Star a Big Job
' Being a movie star at five is no joke
1 A lot of responsibility attaches to it.
| For instance, you have to answer so
many questions. Every one wants to

' you pull down. What your amuse
' ments are and are you as naughty as
you seem to be in "The Kid." -
"I'm not naughty, really, ybu know."
; confessed Jackie when he got upstairs.

: The painting was acquired from Dr.

purchase on its own account, its future

With that much the other strange

in their breasts when they think of
the daily ration of cognac that is given
to John. The arguments of John Gra?

rightful place in our national life." i
to attribute the brain that convolutes
beneath Zip's tufted gray hair an in?
tention to commit deliberate sabotage.
Vet that is Zip's threat.
This ungrateful creature, who has
led a life of ease and comfort since he
was discovered by Barnum in tin: 'ens.
threatens to give up his career. ^ He
is under contract, of course, bin there
is nothing in the cantract that, obliges
Zip to keep his head shaved so that a
gray tuft at the occipital projection
exaggerates its egg form. Baldly the
situation is this: Unless Zip gets a
rum ration he will let his hair grow,
thereby largely destroying his useful
r.ess to the circus.
Zip Turns Agitator
Ti:e most serious feature of the af?
fair is the effort being made by Zip
to force Mr. Ringling to recede from
i:ia firm stand for obedience to the
law. L' Zip's propaganda is success?
ful, Fred Walters, the blue man, may
threaten to undergo a delicate surgi?
cal operation having for its purpose
a structural change in his arterial
system that will once more send his
blood coursing properly through his
arteries. If Krao succumbs to the
ancient freak's arguments he will.,
shave her beard. Zip is also trying to'
get Transparent, William Higgins, the
living skeleton, to adopt a diet of cod
liver oil and starch foods and, with
the same end in view, to get the three
kewpie brothers, who together weigh
nearly a ton, to restrict their diet to
sharp salads and unsweetened tea.
The circus authorities have gone so
f..r as to get Dr. William Shields to
prescribe cognac for John Daniel.
A telephone call from Dexter Fel
lowes, who is employed in a confiden?
tial capacity by Ringling Brothers, in?
formed The Tribune late last night
that Zip had developed a hollow cough
that was worrying the management.
Mr. Fellowes said the doctor had been

Years Assailed Roosevelt
and Backed Scott Nearing
PHILADELPHIA, April 9. -Wharton

of the road" candidate for President
on the Populist ticket in 1900. died
here early to-day. He was seventp-iivc
Mr. Barker was nrominent m finan
?iitl and political circles for more tha-n
fifty years and had been a trustee of
the University of Pennsylvania for
forty years. He was head of Barker
Bros, and organized the Investment
Company and the Finance Company of
Before his nomination al Cincinnati
May 10, 1900. to lead the Populist
party, he was nationally known, chiefly
as a grandson ?f the late Jacob Barker.
The. Barker family is intimately con?
nected with ' American history. It is
said to have descended from the same
Quaker stock as Benjamin Franklin.
Wharton Barker, a son of Abraham
Barker, was born in Philadelphia May
1. 1846. He was graduated from the
University of Pennsylvania in 186?J and
entered the banking firm of Barker
Bros. & Co., which failed for $3,000,000
in 1890 and resumed in 1891.
Ue became interested in politics as
:. young man', ire was always a strong
advocate of a high protective tariff and
?a; s a Republican until 189G, when he
forsook the party to support Bryan and
the hitter's silver plank.
He successfully conducted three
periodicals, The Perm Monthly, Weekly
Notes and The American. During the
Turko-Russian War he built four war?
ships for the Russian government.
Later he was associated with Count
Mitiewicz in Chinese concessions.
After the failure of the Populist
p: rty in 1900 Mr. Barker attracted pub
lii comment on only a few occasions.
One of these was when he t."stiile?i be?
fore a lYiited States Senate, committee
in 1911 that u banker had told him that
| olonel Roosevelt had made a bargain
with the railroad interests 'or I ? ;
Another was when he defended Pro?
fessor Scott Nearing when the latter
was ousted from the department of
economics of the University of Penn?
sylvania because of radical utterances
in public speeches.
Although himself a banker. Mr. Bar?
ker, as a trustee o; the university, i
wrote to Provost Smith:
"The attacks upon Nearing are made. !
not because of his views upon religion,
but because he attacks the aggressions '
of associated capital."
The funeral will be held on Tues- ?
day. His family say it will be as pri?
vate as possible. There will be no
