Mnnrt Itubaou In "Oliver Goldaiulth"
lit UiiKllfth'a Opern Holme.
Stuart Robron. supported by an ad
mirable Company, presented Augustus
Thomis's classical comedy "Oliver Gold
smith" for tho necond time at English's
Opera House last n!ht. Thu literary char
acter of the play might have been gathered
from the composition of tho large nudlenco
that witnessed It. Such a gathering of.
people prominent in tho city's professional
life and of members of leading literary so
cieties la rarely found in a theater. Play
wright Thomas has certainly succeeded
marveloualy in providing his play with that
peculiar but highly essential attribute
known as atmosphere. The characters talk
and act as if the real persons had by some
Kort of magic come to life again. Oliver
Goldsmith, known to intimates as "Noll"
and "Nolly," with his pcetlc mind and his
blundering speech. H capitally portrayed
by Mr. Robnon. One of the most delight
ful character bits seen here in a long time
it that contributed by Htnry A. Weaver,
er., who impersonated Dr. Samuel Johnson
with that degree of art that conceals art.
Edmund Uurke lives again through the art
Of Stephen Grattan. lieaumont Smith is an
excellent Roswell. Clifford Leigh has little
to do as Captain Horneck, but does that lit
tle very well. O. E. llallam and Miss
Jeffreys Lewis havo improved in the re
spective roles of Mr. and Mrs. Feather
stone since their appearance last season.
George C. Staley is new' to the part of Mr.
Kenrlck. but invests it with a dignity and
certain f?ort of charm that almost rob it of
Its repulslveness. Joseph 1. Winter as
Coleman and Euward Dodge as Tony
Lumpkin are the same as last season, nor
was there any need of change. Great in
terest was felt in the appearance of John
11. llenshaw in ihe dual role of David Gar
rick and Uailiff Twitch, handled with such'
consummate ability by Henry 11 Dixey a
year ago. Mr. llenshaw lacks the artistic
finish that Dixey always gives to his
comedy creations, but nevertheless displays
a large amount of talent. His Impersona
tion of the bailiff was better than hl3 Gar
ne and was so received by the audience
last night. Miss Ten Broeck (Mrs. Hen
nhaw) in the small character part of Mrs.
Higgins i a revelation. Her previous work
scarcely Indicated so much ability as a
character actress. The cast shows but ono
lamentable weakness, and that where it
should be strong in the character of Mary
Horneck. "the Jessamy lirlde." Miss
Maude White, who has this important role.
Invests it with tho necessary personal beau
ty, but is sadly deficient in acting ability.
Ellen Mortimer is still the Catherine Hor
neck, "my Little Comedy," as Dr. Gold
smith calls her, and is nothing' short of
charming both in appearance and in her
leading of the lines, H. Washburn as Mr.
Druramond. the man whom Garrick brought
from the Drury Lane Theater to supply
the laughs at rehearsal of Goldsmith' new
play, is new to the cast, but is a desirable
acquisition. The infection of his prodigious
laugh extended from the mock to the real
audience. A clever bit of low comedy char
acter acting Is done by James Grant, who
has held the role of Mr. Flannigan. a
bailiff, during tho two seasons the play has
been on the road. Pesnie Harris, a talented
child actress, played Little Annie last year,
but that part has been dropped and Ml3
Harris assigned to the role of Little Mary
"Oliver Goldsmith" has been provided with
a complete and realistic stage setting, while

A three days' reign cf vaudeville and
minstrelsy began at the Park Theater, yes
terday afternoon, with an attendance that
was fully up to the standard sot by Johnny
and Emma Hay during the first half of the
week. The new attraction is Husco & Hol

Gideon's Minstrel Carnival, and it is an ex

and a picturesque finale, entitled "A Holi
day In Zululand," Introducing an interest
ing Zulu drill and war dance. Miss Wilks
was ably assisted by Lewis Salisbury in her
hinging specialty. An extra feature, not on
the programme, was Ernest Hogan. singer
of comic songs. Mr. HoKan is very popular,
locally, judging from the outburst of ap
plauses that greeted his appearance. His
songs and Jokes nut with tho entire ap
proval of the audience.
The Nashville Students and minstrel per

TOPICS OF EDUCATORS

CHICAGO, Feb. 2S."The football player
gets a llttlo culture from his studies; ho
gets his education from his football," said
I Van Ii. H. R. Rrlggs, of Harvard College,
in discussing to-day before the superin
tendents of the National Fdueatlonal As
fociation "Some Aperts of Public School
Training." "Hy which," he continued, "I
mean that werk Is education. Tho wholo
elrlft of i)w present tlmo is to turn work
Into play and to turn play Into work. The
modern educator thinks that t ho child's
work must bo amusing, and the athletic
trainer knows that the athlete's play must
be work. From which arises the kinder
garten on tiie) one hand and the feotball
game on the other."
Mr. Rrlggs said father: "Tho first lesson
of education In Its truest senso Is to get
down to harel work ami to do it well. This
lesson is education, though It be learn. d
in a mill. Application, concentration, abil
ity to elotheso are the results of educa
tion. Fer this reason tho business man
often prefers tho college nthleto to tho
man of college honors because tho athlete
has done something and tho business man
knows that the doing of things Is a
necessity In actual life. I holet that the
common schoeil shou!d do as much for tho
boy In the way of education as eloes the
game ef football. Tho business of tho
grammar scheol is not to fedlow t ho mind,
but to lead it. It should not allow tho
childish mind to go whither it llsteth; it
should point a elelltdt' path. Drill, elrill and
absolute accuracy should be the function
of the grammar sehend. It sheiuld lay the
foundations on which may bo erected the
substance as well as th frills ef life. To
this end I believe that th teaching of tho
Fngllsh language Is the; chief function of
the grammar school. Let there be much
reading, writing and speaking of tho Fn
gllsh language. This, with a small amount
of mathematics and n little geography, will
form, 1 believe, a suitable foundatlem for
later work. It may be a narrow founda
tion, but It is better than one so incumbered
with tho diversions of education that the
child can crawl over but not stanel upon it.
"To tho objection that elrill is eleaden
ing, I answer that the child enjoys repe
tition ami can stand much more of It than
can the adult. I prefer to havo a boy of
mine use the English language decently,
even if he does not havo an opportunity to
study German In the grammar school.
I believe in the early and earnest study
of tho grammar of our language. I would,
have tho child store his mind with tho
maxims of our language. I elo not believe
that tho modern slighting of the study of
grammar Is producing writers of the same
perfection as we had In the early elaya of
our cemntry. Sewing for the girls and
manual training for the boys are admir
able, but they must not take the place of
tho hard Intellectual work which educate
as nothing else can. Frills In education
may well bo compared to tho frills In
dress. A frill won't tako the placo of a
Dr. William L. Harris, national com
missioner ef education, took issue with
Professor Rrlggs. He. said: "I am thor
oughly tired of all the talk about mental
discipline. I left Yale College in my junior
year because I was ellsgusted with that
sort of thing. It was Latin and Greek
the embryo of all learning. It was so much
embryo that nothing was ever hatehcel.
I thought it wrong then and I know it is
wrong now. The best education for the
child, as for the college man. Is that which
links the school work with the child's life.
That is the education that teaches. I do not
believe that the kindergarten amuses at
the expense of developing habits of orderly
work. The kindergarten arouses the child
to a perception of tho life of which he is
Alcohol ns a food was condemned by
the educators to-day. On this subject
and the report submitted by a committed
of seven appointed a year ago to investi
gate the value of alcohol as a food a lively
debate was anticipated. The report of the.
committee, however, which simply stated
"No authority has been found who main
tained that alcohol is a food." and recom
mending literature discussing the subject,
was adopted, with but little discussion,
this action being regarde.-d as a victory for
the conservative element among the educa
tors. School children will accordingly be
simply told that alcohol is injurious, and
no special course of instruction on its ef
fects on the human system will be given.
The report of the committee on teaching
of physiology as. bearing on the effect of
alcohol was as follows: "We recommend
that a body of educational doctrine be for
mulated which nay guldt temperance in
instruction in the schools throughout the
e-ountry, and we further recommend that
the scope of investigation be so enlargeel
as to cover not only the topics suggested,
but also the Meld of personal hygiene so far
as this is a practical matter for school in
struction. We also recommend that this
investigation be e-ondueted under the direc
tion of the National Educational Associa
tion." The following officers were reported elect
ed by the secretary: President, T. IL Glenn,

John T. Peak say that "Rny was guilty,
and If he was em tho Jury he would send
him to the penitentiary;" and at another

"Ray was responsible for all this trouble,
anel if he and the commissioners were sent
to tho penitentiary befeire tho election it
woulel be all right;" that "he was guilty
and ought to take his eloso with the rest of

Jury lie woulel send Ray to the penitentiary
as long as he lived. That he ought to have

they woulel cemvlct him."
The substance of Ray's attacks upon tho

effort to protect the prisoner. Sheriff Fasig
has made a public statement that, after
consulting with prominent business men he
decided to let the mob have its own way,
and instructed the deputies not to injure
any one. As a result of this statement he
has held a levee at his oillce in the court
house to-day. There has been a stream of
people all day calling to congratulate him.
The newspapers of the city are in sack
cloth and ashes over the discovery that
such indifference to the sense of humanity
exists in the community. Moreover, they
are sad because, on the second day after
the excitement, people still do not seem to
realize the barbarity of the scenes during
all the afternoon while the crowds of boys
and men mado a bonfire over the negro'c
lody and whistled and sang "A Hot Time
in the Old Town To-night" as they cleaned
pieces of bones of the negro's body and
e.ffered them for sale. The schools lott
many pupils that afternoon, and the fac
tories were short of men.
Now that it' Is all over there is no sen
timent for the prosecution of the men who
were worse than the negro. Judge Piety
dees not feel the necessity of calling a
special session of the grand Jury, and the
piosecutor says he is busy in court. No
cne seems to think It is an extraordinary
eccasiort calling for extraordinary steps to
indicate the law.
