An English writer comes to his defense, however, with the nspcrtlon that the story was conceived and worked out as it now stands long be fore the Boer trouble came to a crisis. The article goes on to say: "'It is just two years since Mr. Zangwlll signed the contract with the Harpers in America for the serial use of the book In their maga zine, and also arranged for its stage pro duction. Nor is this the first time that Mr. Zar.gwill has shown this foresight in fic tion, which is more characteristic of the poet's divination. In his first book.

Its Bants a Striking Chapter of In diana History Which Has Lone Waited ' Literary Artist. It is Indiana's good fortune to contribute to the revival In American historical ro mance a novel of exceptional distinction, vigor and charm, based upon her own his tory and written by an author born upon her own soil. "Alice of Old Vlncennes" marks the most serious effort In fiction yet offered by Mr. Maurice Thompson. His previous tales, of which "A Tallahassee Girl" Is the most pleasing and successful, show no such perception, analysis and range as are revealed here. Those who have followed Mr. Thompson's verse must have marked the romantic quality that has in recent years grown to be more and more one of Its attributes, derived doubt less from his frequent contact with the shores of Louisiana, with their delight ful traditions of French dominion. France bequeathed to America a rich legacy of ro mance, and this has lately found literary expression In many writers, notably tn Mrs. Catherwood and Gilbert Parker speaking for the Canadian side, and Mr. Harris Dick son, In his "Black Wolf's Breed," from j the gulf shores. Mr. Thompson has happily hit upon a new field. His scenes are laid at old Vlncennes, in the time of the Amer ican revolution, and his characters Include the habitant and coureur de bols of the early Wabash settlements, and men of es tablished historical fame, like the Amer ican George Rogers Clark and the British Colonel Hamilton, with a liberal ballet of soldiers, Indians, etc. No other novel touching upon the French settlements in the interior of America has reproduced so amply and vividly the life of the lallic pioneers. Mr. Thompson has restored Vln cennes as it was under "the old order." with its cheerful colony of genial French men, who, in their simple habitations among their young orchards and vineyards, ietained their native vivacity and continued many of their national customs. The Wa bash was. In those days, commercially and strategically speaking, of vastly more con sequence than it has been since or will ever b again. It was a part of the line of navi gation between the French Canadian set tlements and those In Louisiana, and the lur traders and coureurs plying their pad dles between the St. Lawrence and the lower Mississippi, by way of lake, river and portage, could not ignore the Wabash route, which led by Vlncennes, where friendly hearths and good wine invited them. OLD WORLD COLOR. Mr. Thompson presents, with sufficient cetail, and never obtrusively, the charming old-world color of Vincennes as it" existed in the years during which the revolutionary war wa3 winning Independence for the Ohio valley. His narrative is, from first to last, lively and engaging, and the dra matic episodes are handled always with skill, and sometimes with striking dramatic energy. "Alice" is an American girl, the adopted child cf Gaspard Roussillon, a prosperous trader, whose home is Vln cennes. There is a mystery about the girl's antecedents, the happy solution of which is only indicated at the end; but enough is suggested of a patrician Virginia ancestry to account for Alice's' sturdy Americanism. Alice is a child of nature but with differences. She has read good books and knows through them the world the has never seen. She is strong and courageous, of course, fair to look upon and, taken altogether, the most original and charming of all the heroines that have lately been contributed to historical fiction. When she makes with her own hands the first American flag that catches the winds of the Wabash, and becomes, under moving dramatic conditions, its custodian and de fender, in the face of the British foe, she ooes merely those things which her his torian prepares us to believe her capable of doing. Beverly, the young Virginian officer who appears with the first American occupation of Post Vincennes, Is an acceptable lover. Helm, Hamilton and Clark, of whom every student of Western history knows, are set out distinctly; and Indlanians, In particu lar, will rejoice that Clark, whose fame Virginia must share with Indiana, has been given a fitting recognition In romance. But it is a question whether, after the heroine herself, "Father Beret" is not the best character in the book. A priest, who is also an expert swordsman, and who has a habit of appearing at the right moment to aid the heroine by deeds and not prayers. Is worth knowing, and Mr. Thompson has created a vital character here. "Father Beret" Is a long-lost brother of "Aramis." of the "Three Musketeers," and equally capable of taking care of himself. The duel by moonlight between Colonel Hamil ton and Father Beret awakens in the read er all those thrills and terrors which novel readers so greatly relish. A BRITISH VILLAIN. American historians have not left Ham ilton much character, and Mr. Thompson does not give the British "hair-buyer gen eral" the benefit of any doubts. He ap pears as the blackest of villains, whose discomfiture is prayed for from his first ap pearance to his final exit. The abundant Incidents of this tale of old Vlncennes need not be reviewed here; it is sufficient to say that lovers of pure, clean romance will find nothing to displease or to disappoint them. The domestic scenes are not less successfully managed than those of Intrigue and action. The reader carries from first to last a lively impression of the time and place, which is as clearly set out in these pages as If it were presented in a drama on tho stage. Mr. Thompson has long been our ablest defender in America of the enchanted islands of pure romance, guarding them against Invasions from ths decadent cor sairs who have often in recent years cruised the literary seas bent upon ruin and piracy. The . gospel that- he has preached has been as wholesome and sweet as "the bloom o the corn" In a Hoosier field; and It Is enough to say that he prac tices what he preache?. TUB LITERARY FIELD. It Is not improper here to refer to the possibilities, illustrated by "Alice of Old Vlncennes" of a literature, at once both national and local, which may be produced In an American State. The States of the Atlantic seaboard were once the sole con tributors to our literature. of historical fic tion. The decades that carried the center of population in this country from Mary land to Indiana brought also a marked awakening of the creative Instinct, and an attention, through the medium of verse and fiction, to the immediate life and history of the Hcosicr commonwealth. We now find in Indiana a markedly interesting and vlcorous literature, In which many phases cf our life is presented. Certain educational and religious phencmena were described in fiction by Dr. Eggleston; Mr. Riley has celebrated later types In verse with a suc cess that Is, outside cf the great New England group, singular in American litera , ture. Mr. Tarklngton has touched upon incident:; of Indiana's social history with rare perception. Miss Caroline Krout and Mr. Cox have found attractive subjects derived from the civil war period in In diana; and now Mr. Thompson has gone to our earlier Indiana history and has again found new and -fresh fountains. Surely no other Western State has been so fortunate as Indiana In the Interpretation oi its own fife and history in song and story. It is In such contributions as those just noted that a permanent national literature is being written. , It was a happy thought of the Bowen Merrill Company, publishers, to secure as illustrator for this distinctively Indiana book an Indiana artist. Mr. Fred C. Yohn's especial talent Is for figure drawing men In action being his favorite subjects. His gift Is admirably displayed in hjs battle pictures in Roosevelt's "Oliver Cromwell," the soldiers there being moving creatures, tense with excitement and the spirit of war. In this novel he has less scope for his peculiar talent, but at least two of the drawings afford It opportunity. All show the touch of the true artist, and all are pleasing pictures. EECOLLECTIONS OF LINCOLN. The Late John Sherman Intercourse vrlth the War President. From Published Volume. Abraham Lincoln, the President-elect, ar rived in the city of Washington on the 23d of February, 1S61, and, with Mrs. Lincoln, stopped at Wlllard's Hotel, where I was then living. On the evening of his arrival I called upon him and met him for the first time. When introduced to him he took my hands in both of his, drew himself up to his full height, and, looking at me steadily, said: "You are John Sherman! Well, I am taller than you; let's measure." Thereupon we stood back to back, and some one pres ent announced that he was two Inches taller than I. This was correct, for he was six feet three and one-half inches tall when he stood erect. This singular intro duction was not unusual with him, but If it lacked In dignity it was an expression of friendliness and so considered by him. Our brief conversation was cheerful, and my hearty congratulations for his escape from the Baltimore "roughs" was received with a laugh. Salmon P. Chase, then senator, was ap- ponted secretary of the treasury. I know with what doubt and reluctance he accepted this office. On the 7th of March his resig nation as senator was communicated to the Senate. In anticipation of it the Legisla ture of Ohio was canvassing for his succes sor. My name was mentioned with many others. I was in doubt whether I ought to be a candidate or even to accept the po sition if tendered. I had been eltcted as a member of the next Congress, and was quite certain of election as speaker of the House of Representatives. The Republic ans had a decided majority, and a feeling was manifest that I should have without opposition the position of whicn I had been unjustly, deprived by the previous House. This was to me a coveted honor. I there fore did not follow the advice of my friends and go to Columbus. A ballot was taken In the caucus of Republican members of the General As sembly, and I received a plurality, but not a majority. My name was then with drawn. Several ballots were taken on a number of days without result. I was then telegraphed to come to Columbus. I went and was nominated on the first vote after my arrival and promptly elected as senator. I had an interview with Mr. Lincoln which may be of interest. I thought some of his appointments in Ohio were not ju dicious and concluded I would go to him and make a general complaint of the dis tribution of these offices. I requested an Interview with him, which was promptly granted, and called at his office one even ing. He was seated In an easy-chair and seemed to be in an excellent humor. I proceeded to complain of some of his ap pointments in Ohio, and as I progressed the expression of his face gradually changed to one of extreme sadness. He did not say a word, but sank In his chair, placing his feet upon the table and looking, as I thought, the picture of despair. I proceeded with my complaint until I began to mentally reproach myself for bothering the President of the United States with so unimportant a matter as the choice of persons to fill local offices In Ohio when the country was in the throes of revolution. Finally I told him I felt ashamed to disturb him with such matters and would not bother him again with them. His face brightened, he sat up In his chair and his whole manner changed, until finally he almost embraced me. He then told me many interesting stories of his short service in Congress and of the men with whom he, was brought In contact. The close of the interview was very pleas ant and I kept my promise to him' about his appointments. During the entire war Washington was a military camp. Almost every regiment from the North on the way to the army in Virginia stopped for a time In Washing ton. This was especially the case In 1SG1. It was usual for every new regiment to march along Pennsylvania avenue to the White House. Among the early arrivals In the spring cf 1SC1 was a regiment from New Hamp shire, much better equipped than our Western regiments. My colleague, Ben Wad", and I went to the White House to see this noted regiment pass in review before Mr. Lincoln. As the head of the line turned around the north wing of the Treas ury Department and came in sight the eyes ot Wnde fell upon a tall soldier, wearing a gaudy uniform, a very high hat and a still higher cockade. He carried a baton, which he swung right and left, up and down, with all the authority of a field marshal. Wade, much excited, asked me, pointing to the soldier: "Who is that?" I told him I thought that was the drum major. "Well," he said, "if the people could see him they would make him a general." So little was then known of military ar ray by the wisest among our senators. Mnsic Criticism Interpreted. Boston Transcript. My friend "A. H." sends me the follow ing fragment of an actual criticism in a musical review: "The impromptu showed no indeciso in the tempo. It had a graviata and grazia which, poco a poco, introduced a motif full of anmuth. However, it soon became a scherzo, something suggesting a nocturne played with dolore and con delcezza. The kappell-meister, forseelng a possible drifting into a barcarolle, with the tradi tional diminuendo, recalling the decresendo of a jaeger-chor, signalled the finale of this fantasia. Then the whole orchestra burst Into a fortissimo ensemble worthy of a maestro." And he suggests the following as a pos sible interpretation: "The extemporaneous production showed no wavering in the time. It had a majesty and grace which, by degrees. Introduced a delicate theme full of sweetness. How ever, it soon became a piece of sportive character, something suggesting a Span ish evening song, played with pathos and feeling. The musical director, foreseeing a possible drifting into a Venetian boat song, with the traditional decreasing of power of intonation recalling the dying off of a hunting chorus signaled the end of this musical fancy. Here the whole or chestra burst into a loud general playing worthy of a master." As I am myself not at all versed in the musical lingo, I shall certainly have to let my friend's translation go as correct. I am sure the original was rather worse than Greek. In the Library.
