motivation and a Just Ideation of the

to confer theso rights on a private com

the bill Tim corporation will le capi

mil bo registered in its name. The stock
mil be divided among the domestic Ger

NOBEL PRIZE FOR HAUPTMANN.

Wlna CoTrtrd Prlr.
Stockholm, Nov. 15. Oerhnrt Haupt
mann, the German author and ib-nina-
tlst, was awarded to-day the Nobel prize
for literature. Ills home Is In Herlln.
Fifty years ago to-day Gerhart
Hnuptmann was born nt Satzbriinn, In
Silesia, so that the honor he receives Is
admirably timed. For the early part
of his life, nfter Ancndlnij some vears
ns n student In the schools of his native
village, he was a farmer In Hreslnu.
Tilling the soil did not take his mind
from the object he had early determined
upon to become n writer of books and
plays. All the time of his arduous oc
cupation he devoted his spare moments
to study and research with such effect
that he was ultimately admitted to tho
University of Jena as a student. He
was then nearly 20 years of oge and
qualified by his previous labors to take
nn adequate place among his associates.
On finishing his course he made a tour
of Italy, returning to take up play
Young Hauptmann speedily estab
lished himself In the front rank of the
budding social dramatists on the publi
cation of his "Die Weber." a realistic
study and exposition of conditions In the
laboring classes of Germany. Official
opposition to the ploy brought It ot
course Instant attention to such an ex
tent that discussion' of It Involved alt
the literary centres nf Europe. The
Lord Chamberlain of England placed his
ban upon It, but nevertheless It was
played by the London Stage Society.
Since that first work Hnuptmann has
won many other honors and several of
his plays have been presented on the
American stage, particularly nt the Ger
man theatre In New York. "Die Ver
sunkene Glocke." "niberpelr." and "Der
Arme Helnrlch" are used ns text books
In many American colleges and "Koltego
Crampton" nnd "Fuhrmann Henschel"
are popular among German students.
"Die Versunkene Glocke" has been
played by Mr. Botherh.
In late years Ifnuptmann has dis
played less of poetic fancy and drama
tic strength than formerly, but his posi
tion has still been secure as one of the
greatest of European dramatists. In
1S98 he was awarded the Grlllparzcr
prize, and Oxford University nlso con
ferred the degree of D. C L. upon him.

Special Cable Iteepateh to Tub Sin
Homu, Noat, 15. -A goldsmith, a shoe
maker, a machinist nnd two caretakers
of St. Mark's Museum, which adjoins the
monastery, were arraigned to-day for (he
theft of Fra Angelico's "Mndonna dolla
Stella." They all proclaimed their inno-,
The goldsmith, Bartolomel, who turned
King's evidence, denounced his alleged
accomplices and aided tho police to re
cover the "Madonna." retracted his con
fession to-day and accused tho police of
hatching the plot.
Tho case was adjourned.
Tho theft of "Madonna delln Stella
occurred at Florenco on tho night of
November 19, '1911, during a thunder
storm, When the clouds broke nnd the
moon shone upon the Monastery
of St. Mark a person who happened to
bo passing noticed a rope leading from
a window of the monastery to tho ground.
Fearing that something was amiss ho
aroused-tho occupants of the monastery
who made an Investigation of the art
treasures. It was then disclosed that
tho "Madonna" had been taken.
Four diirs later the police announced
that they had recovered the art gem,
valued generally nt 1500,000. At that
time the police refused to give any par
ticulars as to how or where they recovered
the painting or any inkling ns to the iden
tity of the thief or thieves.
When the caretnkers first discovered
tho theft of the painting, which hung in
a cell occupied ny tno uomimcan l-ra
Augelico w htm he puinted the masterpiece,
the locks of the coll door had leen broken.
Other masterpieces by the famous painter,
which reposed in the same cell were safe.
Among these paintings were "The
Betrayal" and "The Annunciation."
The "Madonna dellu Stella" represents
the Virgin standing with tho Infant Jesus
in her arms. She wears a hooded robe
on the hood of which blazes a single star.
Sixteen other stars surround the Virgin,
and in the background are angels in pos
tures of adoration. Tho Saviour looks
down upon the Madonna from above.
The painting is a wood panel, 21x11
inches, and la highly embellished as if
by wood carving .
At the time of the theft it was lolieved
that an International gang of thieves had
extended their operations to Florence,
the general belief being that the thieves
had stolen other masterpieces, nota
bly I'onardo da VinciV "Mona Lisa,"
which disappeared from the Louvre,
Paris, and has never since been seen by
the lovers of art.

at his luck in bidding in tho Fifty-ninth
