DRAMAS NEWLY IMPORTED

Ulrl" at the K-lekerbosker, "The
Haaaa'a Cmdr" at W'lsllaek'e. and
ft "The Uaitn'l Iroetor" at the ni.lon.
Six actors In tha lead of m meny companies
' of their own competed against one smother last
H night at theatres In or mar Broadway for tlio
K attention of audiences al the start of the week.
Only one of thsm brought a play absolutely
H view to this eltr. but In two other cases tho
H Iileces were given In altered versions. This was
H true of " The Politician," in whleh Koland Reed
H displayed his humor as a comedian at the Mur
H rav Hill. The original work was "For Con
H cress," In which the late John T. Hay.
H inond was bappjr. and It had been writ
Hi ten nn to the times br .Bydney Rosenfeld,
H so that Mr. Reed found It an easy task
H to make an entertainment of It. Fanny Haven
HJ port began at the American a round of the
H Hardou melodramas In whloh she haddlstln
H rutshtd herself, the first being "Fedora," Sho
H enacts the fiercely loving and haling Russian
H woman with the usual foroe end facility.
Hv,, Richard Mansfield revived, at tho Garden, that
MP' whimsical play by Dernard Shaw, "Arms and
Kj the Man," In.whlch tho hero Is a puzzling char
K acts r, rendered Interesting by the actor. Mr
HI Mansfield has gathered tho original cxcellen
HJ cast for this reproduction.

HJ This powerful play by Henry Arthur Jones ha
HJ been used at the Lyceum early In the sur
HJ carter of E. II. Bothern, and slmolt
HJ neously with Mr. Tree's success In It 1
HJ London. But It stood for a novelty last nlnl.
HJ and It laid a firm bold upon the audience. Te
HJ theme and story are not likely to bo forgota
HJ by anybody once Impressed by them. A prcl-
HJ gate Kngllsh duke and a wanton dancing gtrlre

J to demonstrate bis versatility.
HJ The drama altogether new In NenYf k last
HJt night was "The Rogue's Comedy," vAtl which
H K. 8. Wlllard began his season at Vllack's.
Hj It Is the work of Henry Arthur Jonetnnd In

HJ Dtpal character of a mock clairvoyant This Is
HJ the rogue whom the title mentions a-Kurlng
HJ In a comedy. He Is a thorough rasca a social

H Is unknown. Then thetwo birds of prey, who
Ha have risen to polltelyiefarlous heights from
Hi muoh fouler depths obrime. flyback to their
Hb accustomed level. Th play is faulty In some
. technical particulars, ad Is Ineffectual in some
f respects that do not oicern Its quality as an
H expert dramatic coranllion. The false pre-
under Is a bold, consIsQt, reasonable creation,
HM not Idealized in any vrr calculated to wholly

and thereby gained mon favor for him from
H Indiscriminate auditors.
Mr. Wlllard lost none his audience's regard
4 last nlcbu however, by h Impersonation of an
H arrant rogue. This actoi reputation with dl-
criminate people, and 1 much of vogue as he
H has worked slowly into wh general frequenters
ur the theatre, rest uponls achievement In the
depiction ot strung!)' dkwn characters. His
performance In "The osue's Comedy" de-
terts to enhance his pfesslonal fame. The
m scoundrel conceived byihe author and dp-
uictedbythe actor Is bgbtly witty, cynically
B humorous, cautiously ale as well as fearlessly
nudacious. and so facile a brainy tn his raln-

from a long day In court the reported
thst'a young woman was waiting for
hlmin the stoop, and would not go nway till
she&d spoken with him. He declared that ho
wod not ise hit visitor, butln the samebreath
nit making this statement, with the manner
of (Curmudgeon, he Inquired about thewalU
Injwoman in a way that showed ho had
nallsmlssed her from his mind. In that was
tn clue tn the character a rough-and.grnff
exflor. but a kind heart easily moved by an
oft's troubles. Seating himself and gruru
bg that he was entitled to an even.
It of rest nt home, he yet could not
lierest himself In his newspapor becnuseof
uughts ofhe waiting woman. Eventually
K was permitted to come In and tell her story,
olle ho, with moist eyes, bellowed at her
(at sho must not cry. Ho explained that
te cose In which sho wanted his aid
as an expensive matter, and when she
timed out from her pockets a few dollars and
he pawnbroker's tickets that told whero the
nouey had come from, he bullied bsr for offer
ng him such a sum. Tbo witness thut was
iecnsry wv aboard ship, outward Pound.
Telephoning to Handy Hook dlsulosed the
fart that tho boat had passed tho Hook,
and his order of n tug to go In pursuit, with his
guarantee of tbo expense, was prompt. W Itb.
the word that tho tug had started the coun
sellor for the tfefenco and tha woman
started for Police Headquarters In search
of evldenco favorable to her cause,
leaving the housemaid disgruntled over
her employer's negloot of her froshly-mado
toast and ten. In constructing the sketch two
scenes from Bouclcaull's "The Long Strlko"
had been telescoped anil located In New York,
chiefly through tho client's uso of cast side
slang. The part of the lawyer was thus practi
cally .Ifonetrxnny, which was played so finely
by J. S. Btoddart, .. .
In all, tho two women were little more man
"feeders" for the actor, and no man could have
needed assistance any less. With every minute,
with almost every speech, he pointed the
contrast between his surly manner and
realklndllnofs, disclaiming all credit and
asserting tn a way that permitted no donlal that
it was purely a matter of business. Though so
easily stirred by his visitor's tale, that very sen
sitiveness seemed but n reasonable character
istic of tbo man portrayed, who, con
sidering that the sketch was fragment
ary and but twenty minutes long, was
distinctly drann and was readily understood.
None of the secedsrs from tho "legitimate" to
tho variety shows has mado the change more
pleasantly. I'erhaps the time may come when
the favored place In vaudeville programme that
comes Jut before the Intermission will be ac
corded to this actor.

Such was the castof Mozart's humorous opera
last evening In tho Metropolitan, tho salient
points In the performance ot which were the
energy ot Klvira'i Indignation and grief, forci

drew a llfe-llko picture ot this credulous and
misguided personago singing her phrases alio

Zerllna; the burly clownlshness of Mr. Blsp
hani's Haictto. and the altogether admirable and
adequate rendering which De Reszke Invariably
gives the lmportnnt part ot JpirIto. Neither
the Don Glorann! of Lassalle nor the Donna
Anna ot Mme. Lltvlnne Is a strong enough
creation to stand out in bold relief against
the other characters as It should do.
Lassalle brings to the rOlo of the llber
tlno too little buoyancy, charm. and
dash, whllo his voice Is Just sufficiently wanting
in bsauty to deprive his music of the best possi
ble e fleets. Mme. Lltvl.ina began by acting well,
but gradually lost her hold upon the auulrnce
and seemed to stagnate dramatically and
merely to stand about upon the ttage grouping
with the others but falling to assert herself.
Her one great aria proved too heavy and large
for her to sustain and fell flat upon a cold and
u nresponslve audience.
Rlspbam made a picturesque figure of MaMttn,
with action well thought nut. but a trine too
earnest and tragic tn be perfect. Zerllna lacked
snirkle and lvaclly nnd point In aitlng. and
her singing was monotonous, though certainly
sweet In tone nnd smooth In manner.
Pig. Cremonlnl received an encore for his
singing of "II mlolesoro." It as certainly

After a brave fight for life Col. John It. Fel
lows, District Attorney ot the county ot New
York, died atflve minutes after 1 o'clock yester
day afternoon in his home on West 162d street,
near tha Boulevard. Even after lie was told
that he had not long to live Col. Fellows did not
give up hope of his own rocovery, nnd his de
termination to live until his son, John R, Fel
lows, Jr., could renoh his bedside kept him alive
many hours after another man would have suc
cumbed. Young Fellows, who had Joumejed
from Hot Springs, Ark., got to the house 2K
hours after bis father's doatti. Col, Fellows'!
wife, his son Harry, and his daughter Bonnie
were nt his bedsido when tho end came. Ills
youngest daughter. Marguerite, was In the
house, but not In tho room.
The cause of death was a fibroid tumor ot tha
stomach, which, appearing about five J ears ago,
grow ai.d spread until tho orifice Uivllng from
tho stomach Into tha intestlnus flnnlly was com
pletely closed. Homo years ago the sufferer was
advised to undergo an operation, but refused, as
ho did not boliove, from bis general condition of
health, that tho troubla was serious enough.
His exertions In behalf at tho cause ot sound
money last election weakened hlin, and slnco
that time he had been far from strong. A fort
night nu'o he'deolded to go to Saranac Lake, in
the Adlrondaoks, to recuperate, and engaged
rooms to bo ready for him last WeduoMlay, as
ho expected to start on Tuesday evening. Cer
tain business required hlsprusonao at the Dis
trict Attornei's odlco before his departure, so
he went down there Tuesday morning. A short
time after his arrival nt tha office ho was taken
with an attnek ot retching, followed by fntnt
r.ess. A doctor who was called In told him to
go homo at once and send for his family
By tho time he got home, and his family phy
sician. Dr. Louis A. Rodoustcln, had reached
the house. Col. Fellows wis n very sick man.
He as unable to keep any food on his stomach,
and from that time on nourishment nns glvou
by Injections. By Saturday Dr. Rndoiistiln
told Mrs. Fellow that her husbtnd could
hardly recover. The patient himself did not
realize how serious Ills Illness was until Dr.
Rodenstelu told him that thero was danger of
" Has any word been sent to my son, Jack ?' '
asked the sick man.
"Yes: he has been telegraphed for," replied
"That's right. Send word to my iifflco Just
what my condition is."
A telegram hud already been sent to John It.
Fellows, Jr., at Hot Springs. Ark., and a short
time after a reply came saying thul tho oung
man wnson his way East, itheemeil Impossible
that Col. Fellows could lUe until his -on ar
rived, ard Sunday afternoon It was thought
that ho would not ln;.t until midnight. He
asked the Dnrtor If It was not pneumonia from
which he was suffering, this supposition proba
bly arising from his Uiftlculty In breathing.
When l)i. Rodenstelu told him ltwasaworxe
ailment, ho said:
"If it Isn't pneumonia I may getwellyet. I
hnvo a strong constitution. 10.1 know. Any
way I Khali live to sets in; boy Jack. You must
keep mo alive. Doctor, until .lack Lome-."
Dr. KtMleiisteln and Dr. Walter 31. neming
wero with Col. Fellows until 11 o'clock bundu
night, when tho family was called In at the
patleut's request to bid him gi.od-bo. Evu
then lie expressed hopes of his recovery,
although he said that he was prepared for tlio
worst. When ttio uh)slciaiis left the huuns thcr
sald that the uutlenl uiltfhl live for twelie
hours. Ud to 4 o'clock yesterday morning ho
held his own well; then ramu a sinking pell,
and the family was roustd, for it was thought
that ho would die within nn hour. The Rev.
Henry Illxnn Jones of the Protestant l.plcopal
Church of the Intercession, at ISHtli street and
tho Boulevard, of which Col. Fellows was a
vestrnnan, was sent for and tame to the
house, where ho staved until the patient died.
Col. Fellows rallied from the sinking spell, but
suffered considerably from dirtlcuUy in breath

"Jack," and thei. apologized, m) Ing:

a few hours, and he dozed off. Little by little
he became weaker until about 10 o'clock yefler
day morning, hen ho became unconscious. Un
der the Influence of stimulants he milled again
and seemed to understand when Dr. Jones read
the service for thedjlng. Soon after, he became
unconscious again with moments of dollrlmn,
and his only lucid periods wero those In which
lie momentarily roused himself 10 n-k for
Jack. Just before he died his breathing, which
had been stertorous and labored, lecnn e veiy

quietly that those pre-ent hardly knew when he

In New Orleans yesterday. Mr. Laboulsse was
ono of the most oxpert statisticians In tho coun

and House committees In the consideration ot
tho Anti-option bill, and his testimony did
much to defeat that measure. At the last ses

seemed certain that a law against dealing In

strong testimony and explanation of tho matter
killed the bill. Mr. I.nboulsse refused all po

" Yon can't talk here." shonted Sanlal nt the

One of the most remarkable of the charity so
cieties In this city Is the D. Y. N. T, which last
week gave nt Sherry's the annual fair for tho
benefit ot the association. Tho full name of the
association Is tho " Do Ye Neito Thynge So
ciety," and the members are young girls belong,
ing to tho host families In tho city. The report
of the club's work this year, fur Instance, Is
signed by Miss Modellno L. II. Sattorlce, a
daughter of Dr. Le Roy Satterlee nnd ndorm
tnnto of several sonsons ago. Mls Anuctto B,

Clnrkson the VIco-Prasldent, and Miss Evvcr

Miss Laura Dudley, Miss Alice Wlnthrop, Miss
Emily Norrle, Miss Amotln Stephens, and the
rest of the Visiting Committee are all young
women whoso faces are rnoro familiar at balls
than lu the regions which they visit In the so
Although the workers are girls and young
women w hose position in soctoty Is as good an
the best in New York, the work which the forty
members of the D. Y. N. T. carry on Is not al
low od to be affected by that fact. They enter
Into practical charity, house visiting, nnd the
personal direction of some of their charges.
Just now the ambition; of tho members aro di
rected toward a farm colony, a model tenement,
or a large laundry which shall bo self-supporting.
The members aro looking for some such
scheme In order to give employment to
the many persons who come under the socisty's
notice, nnd are not provided for, as not suffi
cient employment for them Is to be found. But
it Is not with work on such n scale, nnd work
that can be conductod on the broad plan of the
proposed Institutions, that the luemhorsof the
society now occupy themselves with. Those
am ambitious dreams of tho future. At present
the young women aro busied with matters
much loss elaborate, and much more personal.
Tho Secretary's report this jear mentioned
sanio cases ot tho society's work which show
with how much sincerity nnil earnestness these
young women, who might bo expected to bo
much more Interested In cotillon favors nnd
nfternoon tens, nttend to the work which they
hnvo undertaken. The Visiting Committee ro
ports that during the winter of 1S1I.1 00 there
wero C00 persons aided and 11)0 families visited
by members of the committee. Other Interest
ing statistics describo tho cases of the eight
families who received louns of money for rent
from the society, of tlie recipients of the
eighteen bottles of cod liver oil and malted
milk, and of tho nineleun families who were
supplied with groceries during the winter.
There were thirty-three women which the so
ciety kept regularly employed In sowing during
the winter These emus wero of the kind which
young society women might have undertaken
without special difficulty, barring the visiting In
stuffy nnd III smelling rooms ns well as In local
ities that aro very different from Fifth avenue.
But some of tlio cases narrated In the cutalugue
are more unusual.
Miss Sutterlec's report mentions this case
among the others which wero looked after Inst
year by the 1). Y. N. T. society:
"An exceedingly difficult caso to deal with."
Miss Satterlce w rites, " was that of a j oung hoy
brought up In the worst surroundings, whose
father had been ndrtiukard and his mother shift
less and embittered hy the hardness of her lot.
Though onlj 16, tho boy had spent most of his
time 1111 the streets with mail) 01 tho worst char
acters of tho neighborhood. 1 ho visitor round
work for him and tried to persuade him to lead
a different life. Somo Improvement seemed
to have been made, when he wus arrested for
stealing pigeons nnd sent to the Tombs. Di
stend of being sent to Elmlra bo wn-, through
tho Intercession of tlio vi-llor. committed to
the charge of the Boy' Republic, whero bis
board is being paid by one o' the members ot
the society. Mr. Georgo. the head of the Re
public, reports that so fur ho has been ono of
thu inofct rcliablo boys, and has been appointed
as 'keeper ot thu prisoners nnd workhouses,' a
post of some Imparlance In the Kenubllc."
Not nil the subjects of the philanthropy of
the D. V. N. T. wero so joirthful as this re
1 lalmrd boy. Miss Satterlco's report tells the
storj ot the socielj's work:
"lu one instance a wire had been cruelly
trented tor some time past bj her husband,
w ho. though a man ot Intelligence nnd ability,
hvl not been brought up to work, and was lary,
shiftles, and continually In bad company. He
lind been out of work for somo time, iheir rent
was owing, and they wero starving. At
till- climax tbo woman, who hud Klrugglrd
hard to keep her homo respectable and
her tht'dren licit and clean, became em
bitter, d uud reckless uud applied for belnaud
ndvli 1 to her visitor In tho society. That very
iiioi nmg hoi husband hud tliieutened to take
her lift, .it il showas advl-ed to lnvrohlmnt
o'ico mid go with the children tu St. llarnabas's
Homo until other iirranirem nts could bo made.
Me in while the visitor went to into the husband
mid taku nway tho remaining child. She found
him in a state ot despair, as lie was really
fond of his famllv In splta of his be
havior. After talking to both husband
lind w ire, n rec unclllation was effected between
them. The man announced his intention to re
form that vrr night at the Bible clasb which
ho attended tor the first time and continued
frntii thai o veiling to be one of tho regular mem
bers. 1 he atmosphere of their home life "cemed
entlrol j changed, and they began to pay back In
in-tallmctila ilia monev lent thorn for rent
(w hen ll wns thought best tn give them another
i bin. col '1 be hutbunil found umporary work,
mill lb now willing to takeniijlblug ollered him
in thuwuv of eiupioiiuenl."
One Instance in which tho society Interfered
to hilp 11 j oung woman of ivbnut the ago of most
of the members is related thus:
"An Iniere-llngcasB was that of a young girl
of tvvrnty-one, the daughter of acountrv cler
gvmati with n very small salurv uml a large
famllv to supiinrt. The girl came lo this city to
si ok employment, and tried tn malulalu hcrseir
by woiklug with a dressmaker until her ser
vices were no longer required. She wus about
to be turned udrlfl homeless und pen
niless In tlio streets of New York when
tho sneletv heard nf tier through a friend,
tlm girl herself having been too proud to n-k
fornld, .Money was lent heir for bonrd alid
judging nnd clothing provided, while one of the
monition, npplieil in her behnlf at the Post
tirndunte Training School Tor Nurses, where
sh wus received, notwithstanding thnt many
otheis wero on tlio wnillng list. A complete
nurse's ouillt was provided ror her b the so
clotj' nnd evurj 1 zcrllon mudu tot tier vveirare.
She Is now hnppilv p'nroil with the S. stern of
St. .Mary at Trinity Hospital, and has returned
the entire sum of j.'iO loaned her by Ihesmletv.''
Not only their own sex is nlded. but the young
women extend n timid tu iron lu need, ns Gils
Instance related by Miss Sum rlee shows-
"A j'nung man of gentlemanly upprarance
