Earl of Dunraven Talks About
Irish Land Question. ,
A FINAL, SETTLEMENT
Bill, if Drawn on Llne of Report, He
Says, Will Removo the Cause
of Friction, Whlch ls Reacting
on Great Britaln.
(By Assoclated Press.)
LONDON, February 23.?The Earl of
Dunraven was Intervleived to-night re
sardlng the report of the Irlsh landlords
and tenants' conference in Dublln. of
whlch ho was chairman. He spoke hope
fully regarding the prospects of leglsla
tion whlch he thought would end the dlf
flcultles In Ireland. Lord Runraven sald:
"The utterances of Klng Edward. of
Brltlsh publlc men, the temper of:.Ire
land, the reception of the conference's
report by the publlc-.and the actlon of the
government slnce the publication of tho
report are all favorable Indlcatlons polnt
lnj_ to the success of the governmei.t'a
Irlsh land bill, whlch, if it contains
Just and generous offer, wlll make good
the flrst Imprcsslon, on whlch all cle
pends. Tho blll, lf drawn on the llnes
of the terrns of the report, wlll lnsure
a flnal settlement and remove the causo
of friction in Ireland,'whlch Is reacting
unfavorablo not only in Great Britaln,
byt throughout the Emplre'. and on our
klndred ln the Unlted State..'
Lord Dunraven repiled to the adverse
crltlclsm of the report, saylng that the
conferees could not lay down a specilic
formula to be adopted. They were obllged
to deal wlth the matter on the broadest
lines, conslderlng both tho Interests of
tho natlon and those of tho Indlvldual
landlords and tenants. He dld not think
that the government would be able to
speclfy a strlct formula, whlch. lf at?
tempted, would confuse the Issue. The
minor dctaiis of any plan based on vol
umtarlsm must be left to the purchasers
and selk-rs. The conference only soUght
lo formtilate-the condltions under whlch
lt would be possible to complete the
transfer of the lnnd wlthln a reasonable
perlod. His iLordship concluded by say?
lng that he dld not thlnk that the de?
mand on the State trcasury would be dls
proportionate to the beneflts gained.

The woman was shot down ln hor

"Zig Zag Alley;' Is appropriately
named a trlck farce. The slap stlck
plays one of the most imporUmt parts
in the plece. Its characters are made
up of an Irlshm;ui?one of tlie regular
stage klnd?a. Hebrew pawnbroker, who
conformed to all the rules of farce
comedy, but was not at all llke any of
hls race; a messenger. boy, too qulck to
be anything like the real artlcle; two
dress-sutt tramps of the usual type; an
Jrlsh -wash lady, a soubrette, who dressed
llko the . prlncipul female rlder* in a
clrcus, and_a lot of glrls, who aro Just
thrown ln for "looks."
All of these sing and dance and gen?
erally mlx themselves up through the
three acts ln a manner that It altogether
satisfactory to the audlence. At least,
so It seemed last nlght
The performance ls half vaudevilie,
and there were several members that
were exceptionally clever. The trick
bicycle ridlng of Zeb and Zarrow was
one of these. Thlo ls one of tho best
acts of its kind ever seen here. The
two perforraers can do almost anything
on a wheel. It must make the mem?
bers of the orchestra feel very uneasy
durlng tbe progress of the act. It seems
about certaln that the rlders wlll spill
themselves over lnto tho orchestra Just
before they finish thelr exhlbltlon. Ella
Shields, bllled as the "Southern Night
ingalo," does a slnging act that calls for
several encores. The conversational
song in the second act also caught on
well.
Llllle Sleger rcnrlered a concert solo,
the effect of whlch was somewhat spolled
by the pantomlmlc buslness of the oth?
ers who occupied tlie stage durlng this
number.
The performance lasts nearly threo
hours, and it was enjoyed throughout
by the usual Monday nlght audience.
Broadhurst ^& Currle's blg muslcal
comedy, "Mr. Jolly of Jollet," which,
comes to the Academy to-nlght, is tho'
latest offerlng of these popular mana
gors, and from Its record up to date It
bids falr to outstrip many ot its older
rlvals ln the rnce for publlo approval.
The author. Charles Newman, has se
lected a themo for the story of hls play
that wlll Interesl nll people who enjoy
the relatlon of facts nnd fancios of stage

who on account of his waning popularity,
Is obliged to enter the variety buslness,

False and Tlnsel Military Glory, but
Will Return to Principles of
Washlngton. .
(By Asjociotcd Press,)
CltlCAGO. ILL., February 23,-The
anniversary of tho blrth of Georgo
Washlngton was gonorally observed In
Chicago to-day, tho prlnclpal celebration
belng that under the auBplcos of the
Unlon League Club thls evenlng In tho
audlturlum, Senator George Hour, of
Jlassachusotts, was the orator ot the
day and dcllvercd an eulogy upon Wash?
lngton before an audlence of 4,000 people,
Hla address was ln part as follows:
"Ed-ward Everett ln a great oratlon bo?
foro tho war called upon hls countrymen
as lt seemed for a tlme in valn, to for
get, to turn a deaf eor to unpotrlotlc
counsels,: to tho mad cry of treason and
dlsunloniand return onc<? more to the
patrlotlc counsel of Washlngton, It
seemed for a tlme as It the appeal wero
unheeded, but tho spasm of popular
madness and rage passed by and Wash?
lngton resumed hls placo again as our
supreme counscllor and leader. He be?
came onco moro the cxamplo and idol ot
every Amerlcan soldler and statesman.
and the farewell address became once
ngain the polltlcal bible of every Amer?
lcan.
"Doubt not that thls shall happen
agaln und agaln. Other temptatlons wlll
come tous and party splrlt, like Satan
sltting at the ear of Eve, wlll' speak
again Its baieful counsel ln the ear of
tho people. . Popular .excitement wlll be
klnd led by the lust ot emplre and passion
for conquest- The ,'oyes of the people
may bo dazzled fen- a tlme by a false and
tlnsel military glory, but whlle tho plc?
ture of Washlngton hangs ln every vll
lage, whlle hls statue adorn our prln?
clpal cltles, whlle hls monuments adorn
every State, whlle1 tho detall of hls great
career Is studled in every unlversity,
whllo hls image ls ln the heart ot every
youth, tho people wlll come back again
to the wlse. sober and Justcouns.el ln whlch
llcs tho path to truo glory and safety,
Iho Amerlcan people wlll never long go
astray, so long as to every great question
of natlonal pollcy, of natlonal duty 'they
know what Washlngton ."would havo sald
and know what Washlngton dld say."
In the evenlng the prlnclpal event was
tho banquet at the Union Leaguo Club,
where Senator Hoar was the guest of
honor. Other speakers of tho cven_ng
were Presldent Bancroft, of the Unlon
League Club; Presldent Ellot, ot Har?
vard College; the Rev, Frank W- G"n

PAGE'S TRIBUTE
TO ROBERT Er LEE
(By ABSoclated Press.)
ATLANTA, GA., February 23.?The an?
nual banquet of the Vlrglnia Soclety ot
Atlanta was held to-nlght at the Fled
mont Hotel, wlth Thomas Nelson Page.
of Vlrginla, and John Fox, of Kentucky,
as the guests of;honor. Toasts were.re?
sponded to by these two authors andby
BIshop Behjamlne J.' Kelly, of Savannah,
Clarkc Howell,.and Henry IL Cablniss.
Tho toasts of the evenlng were in honor
of George Washlngton and General Ro?
bert E. Lee. Before the banquet, Mr.
Page addressed a large audlence at the
Grand Opera House, and pttid a glowing
tribute to the memory of General Robert
E. Lee, the South's great hero. He spoke
under the ausplces of the Vlrglnia So?
clety of Atlanta. ln part, he said:
I have searched ln valn ln history to
f.nd Lec's superlor, and only onco or
twice haive I found his equal. My bellef
Is that the North hiis prodted as much
by her monopoly of history "wrltlng as by
her monopoly of other manufactures. Nor
do I charge agalnst thoso wrlters more
than lgnorance of facts. No proud monu?
ment rlses to-day ln tho Capitol of thls
natlon to do honor to its greatest soldler
and its greatest cltlzen. The tlme is not
yet. It is still a delcute matter to
handle, and we should be patlent wlth
those whose associations have flxed un
changeablo prejudlces ln thelr mlnds.
Some daj- there wlll stand In the na
tlon's Capitol a great monument to hlm,
erected not only by the southern people.
whose glory ls that he was the frult of
their clvlllzatlon and leader of thelr
armles, but by the Amerlcan poople,
phose pridc lt will be that he wns their
fellow-cltlzcn. .Meantlme, he has a nobler
monument than can bo built of marble
or of brass. Hls monument is the adora
tion of.tho South. hls shrino Is ln every
southern heart.
