actress in this country who has !ad
the courage to stick iinllinchingly to
the ultra-classic drama. Miss Shaw's
SCENE FROM "THE LILY AND THE
first laurels were won in Shakespeare
and later, she essayed with great suc
cess the stellar roles in Ibsen's
"Ghosts," "The Joll's House" and
"IJedda Gabler." ' Tt was the actress'
intention, had not the company been
forced on tour, to present the remain
ing plays of Shaw and' Ibsen, which
had not yet been done in this country,
at special matinees in New York eily,
and it is more than likely that this
will be done on the road. Among the
plays not yet produced are "Pillars
of Society," "Rosmersholm," and
"Widowers' Houses." Miss Shaw's
work as an emotional actress is s.dd
to rank easily with any of the stars
at present appearing in America.
Miss Shaw will present here "Ghosts"
by Hinrik Ibsen, the greatest tragedy
ever written, Friday, Jan. 31, at the
One -of the Most Pleasing. "The
Lily and the Prince," which will be
the attraction at the Illinois tomorrow,
it is safe to say will prove one of the
most pleasing dramas of the current
season. Its scenes are laid in Flor
ence and Italy and are painted with
an effort which combines gorgeousness
and exquisite beauty. The first act
shows a rose garden in Florence, the
home of the heroine and is a master
piece of beauty in stagecraft with its
spraying fountain of water in the cen
ter and abundance of roses all around.
The second act takes place in the
glittering palace of Lucretia Borgia
and contains many powerful scenes.
(while the third act is remarkable for
its great intensity. The act shows the
interior of the chamber of the council
;of the inquisition in the fortress of
jSt. Angelo. The entire scene is hung
in black, the somberness of which is
relieved only by the flaming red gown
and mask of the president, of the coun
cil.. To this chamber the Florentine
lily penetrates and finds her father
about to be tortured into a confession
of plotting against his holiness, the
pope, of which another is guilty. She

makes her plea before the council and
is harshly ordered by the red mask
to leave. In his voice she discovers
the betrayer of her father and de
nounces him. One of the councillors
defends her, who, upon unmasking
proves to be Cardinal Capua, 'the real
power behind the pope, who instantly
dismisses and dissolves the council.

Kilkenny Cats In Ohio.
Senator Fornker and Secretary Tr.ft
are pointing accusing lingers at each
other and each anointing himself with
balm as the oijly true promoter of hur
mouy and peace in the state. In a re
cent speech the senator, who is a
mighty good lighter, whatever may l;u
thought of his political doctrines, re
ferred with caustic bitterness to Sec
retary Taft's avowal that he rejected
propositions for harmony on. the
ground that the secretary of war could
not be a party to any deal that gave
him the support of the Republicans of
Ohio for the presidency if it compelled
the indorsement of Fornker for th"-
United States senate. 'When Secre- j about this man Cooper and his medi
tary Taft rejected all these peace of-icints, and one morning I talked with
ferings," said the senator, "I had ei
ther, to run away or to resume the
contest. The resulting situation is dis
agreeable, but I do not consider my
self responsible for it. Moreover, in
view of the facts I have given I could
not if I ::o desired take the initiative
as to any new peace negotiations or
even consider or talk about anything
of the kind on my own motion until
Secretary Taft or some one speaking
for him should lead the way. And
from all I hear nothing of that sort is
likely to occur. It may therefore be
regarded as settled that the contest
will be fought out to the end."
Considering that the friends of Mr.
Taft started in with the proposition to
eliminate Senator Forukcr from poli
tics and that they have not vet -c:i:-'cd
talking along that line, the senator's
position seems reasonable. It also
seems equally reasonable to anticipate
that with these two powerful warriors
at each other';; throats the chance for
Democratic meivss in thv coming cam
paign are very bright. To an observe,
however, from outside the state thi
fight also suggests that neither Taft
nor Foraker will iu the very nature of
clever politics get the nomination.
A Republican A'tack c:i Leber's flights
For more than a week the propored
revision codification of federal stsit'ite:;
has Iteen under discussion in tin h:;se
of representatives. The debate being
in committee of the whole, it lias been
more free and spirited than under the
heavy hand of the speaker. One para
graph which has been on the statute
books since the year isou led to a lively
debate, in which the Democrats got a !
the best of it. Tills clause provides
that any man who shall induce an m
ployee in any United States arsenal or
armory to give up his employment 'or
any man who shall employ a man so
induced shall be guilty of misdemeanor
and subject to line or imprisonment.
The Democratic contention through
out the debate was that this was a de
nial to a single class of public serv
ants of the right to better their condi
tion by securing better wages in pri
vate employ. What constitutes an in
ducement is easy to understand. It
does not mean merely an offer of bet
ter pay from an employer. Even if the
workingman seeks the more attractive
offer and it is made he nevertheless
has been subject to inducement. The
Democrats urge a very simple amend
mentnamely, the insertion of the
words "in time of war." It would hardly
seem that anybody could make excep
tion to that, yet it was voted down
by a strict party vote. And more, the
proposition for which the Republican
side of the house voted as a unit was
designed only to prevent the mere
workingman, the fellow who handles
machinery and gets into the grime and
ruck of actual work, from gettiug a
liefer place. It does not prevent the
army officer, educated at West Point
and at public expense, from accepting
a proposition from the United States
steel trust to -supervise the making of
cannon or from going to the Colt's
Arms company in Connecticut, where
great quantities of small arms are
manufactured and sold. It would not
prevent a man educated at public ex
pense from- leaving the navy to go to
the Cramps. .or the Bethlehem Steel
company. It might be questioned why.
if workingmen are to be denied the
right to seek letter 'employment by
federal statute, they should not in the

nence of their present positlonl - But
