gnu-take of a turkey dinner at every per

great number of birds and that, though she
changes about regularly, she has grown

much astonished the other day when Mr.
Oross showed her a book full of figures and
proceeded to read her his results.
The press agent had counted thai during
the eight seasons mentioned "Shore Acres"
had been done just 2,H times. This meant
that Miss Croiius engagement had been
-marked by the consumption of 2,016 dishes

of bread, and 2,016 cups of coffee. Since

NEW YORK, Oct 28 Now that all
sorts of charges and counter charges are
being made In theatrical circles, one rather
feels it incumbent upon himself to take
a hand In the proceedings and accuse some
body of conspiracy. Accordingly, after due
thought and proper calculation, I allege
that seven of our bet-known stars have
combined tp keep local critics toiling for
their daily bread. Gotham has had five
really important productions during the
past week. Personally, I am completely
fagged out and I can imagine the tem
per of the unfortunates of the daily press
who have been forced literally to jump
from theatre to office and back again.
Brilliance under such circumstances is im
possible. Most interesting of all our premieres was
that which occurred on Monday night at
the Criterion, where Julia Marlowe pre
sented "Barbara Frietchie." Miss Friet
chie has shown a marked tendency to dis
semination during the past few years and,
for Miss Marlowe's sake, Clyde Fitch lias
so altered even the remnants of her repu
tation that, save for the title and a note
on the programme, one would never recog
nize Whittier's aged heroine. Mr. Fitch's
creation has grey hair in the last portion
of the play, her tresses having lost their
original color in twenty-four hours, but
she is very young and romantic, notwith
standing. The theme used for a plot is the
-ancient one of "love across the bloody
gulf" and, while the piece is adequate to
Mies Marlowe's demands, it cannot be
called a great work. "BaTbara Frietchie"
has all the melodramatic tendencies of
"Nathan Hale" or "The Moth and the
Flame" without possessing many of the
merits of those offerings. There are two
or three thoroughly Fitchesque episodes,
but these' are not compactly put together
and the entire structure is thus weakened.
Miss Marlowe has very little to do which
is a general cause of complaint and does
that little exceedingly well. Among those
by whom she Is assisted are J. H. Gilmour,
George Woodward, and W. J. Le Moyne.
On the same evening another half-way
auccess was scored at the Casino by dainty
Alice Nielsen, who was seen in Victor Her
bert, Harry B. Smith, and Stanislaus
Stauge's "The Singing Girl." The week
has brought forth nothing from which
more was expected or much less realized.
Mr. Stange has constructed for the opera
a book that is just about as funny as a
pauper funeral. The lines are not bright,
the situations are hackneyed, and the tale
's altogether too legitimate for a work of
the sort. Mr. Herbert's music is charm
ingas it always is but hardly on a par
with that of his earlier scores. And Mr.
Smith's lyrics are catchy. Miss Nielsen,
who is as unaffected and demands as little
attention from the calcium man as evr,
carries away what honors may lie con
nected with the performance. Her per
sonality, her mannerisms, and her voice
saved the piece from being ruthlessly
slated by the local critics. The prima
donna is supported by a notable cast, in
which are Eugene Cowles, Richie Ling,
Joseph W. Herbert, Joseph Cawthorn, John
C. Slavin. Edward V. Metcalfe, and Jennie
The third of our productions is an out-and-out
failure. It is E. H. Sothern's
"The Song of the Sword." which was writ
ten for him by Leo Dietrichstein. The
play seems to be the baldest sort of a steal
from all sorts of sources, and. though fair
ly well acted aud magnificently staged,
will not last much longer than did '"Change
Alley." The story revolves around Gen. Na
poleon Bonaparte, and its hero
is a Captain Egalite, an olncer
in the army of the "little
Corsican." A certain countess is caught
while carrying despatches through the
lines, her husband having been too coward
ly to undertake the task. Captain Egalite,
her captor, falls in love with the fair en
emy, and realizing that Napoleon's designs
on her are not of the purest permits her
to escape. For this he is court-martialed
and condemned to be shot. Just as the
sentence is about to be carried out, how
ever, the foe attacks and a party of volun
teers is called upon to sacrifice itself in
ord- that the general may escape. The
prisoner is of this party and the only one
of the Frenchmen alive when the curtain
falls. Mr. Sothern is not altogether bad as
the captain and Virginia, Harncd is very
good as the countess. Except for Norman
Parr, the Napoleon, the support is efllclent.
Another Napoleon this time in the per
son of Willlain Humphries was one of the

two central figures in Julia Arthur's "More
Than Queen" on Tuesday night at the
Broadway. The piece is a translation from
the French of "Plus Que Relne," which
was presented for a long time in Pans
at the Porte St. Martin, by Coquelin and
Jane Hading. "More Than Queen" is not
a play in any sense of the word. It is
merely a succession cf such incidents as
give an excuse for gorgeous trappings. It
is a panorama. Even Richard Mansfield's
disjointed "Tho Emperor Napoleon" was
not less coherent. Miss Arthur, whom
Alan Dale calls the "millionactress." wears
several wonderful gowns in the role of
Josephine, but does not do very much else.
Mr. Humphries is a passable Napoleon.

Whenever May Irwin comes to the Bijou
there is a. reception of startling propor

us a view of Glen MacDonough's "Sister
Mary" and, while tho farce turned out to
be little more than a pretence for intro
ducing its star, that buxom lady scored
heavily. The story is a mere trifle, con
cerning the difficulties into which a news
paper woman gets by fooling with an as
sumed name. Miss Irwin is singing a half
dozen new "coon" songs and, while she
seems to have found no fit 'successor for
"The Bully," "The Frog Song" or "When
Yo' Ain't Got No Money W'y Yo' Needn't
Come 'Round," she wins encores with each
of her melodies. "Sister Mary" is in for
Perhaps the real surprise of the weelc
was provided at the Grand, where New
York was given Its first chance of seeing
Blanche Walsh in the roles formerly en
acted by Fanny Davenport. To say that
Miss Walsh improves on her more famous
predecessor is not praise enough. The new
aspirant really does some wonderful work
work that entitles her to being classed
with such people as Mrs. FIske and Mrs.
Leslie Carter. "Gismonda," "La Tosca,"
"Fedora," and "Anthony and Cleopatra"
were shown during the engagement.
Next week New York Is to have two very
important productions. William Gillette
