LONDON, May 3. English theater-goers are mightily workM up over George Ed wardes's suggestion to raise th price of admittance to the stalls In I-ndon play houses from l'3 6d to 12 M. He holds that th Increased amounts paid to musical com edy stars and the cost of producing up-to-date pieces of that nature are dispropor tionate to the receipts. To remedy this Mr. Edwardes advocates an agreement be tween the London manager? increasing the price of the host seats by 2 shilling?. Berr bohm Tree disagree? with Mr. fcldwardcs and In so doing- sounds a thoroughly Ameri can note. "I would like to see the prices reduced Instead of raised," he Is quoted as saying, "the idea being that the latt r course will tend to popularize th? theater. Personally. I am enntf ntwl with a modest competency, but I rlo want people to attend the theater Jn even, larger numbers than now-; Look at America. The whole ground floor of th theaUr is given up to stalls at a uniform price of 51.50. though in America theater-going is as much a duty as golf and football is with us." George Alexander is inclined to agree with Mr. Edwardes, Charles Wyndham is doubtful and Frederick Harrison believes a rise in prices would be followed by shorter runs. A canvass of the managers seemed to Indi cate that those handling musical comedies are In favor of an increase of prices, while those otherwise interested are opposed to it. To-day revives the report that Eltie Fay. the American actress, will- be married in June to a young baronet, said to be Sir George Lyonei Iiwson Prrseott, a lieuten ant in the Second Life Guards, who was born in 1573 and owns an estate of about 4,M; acres. "She does not propose," con tinues To-day. "to retire from the stage, but will probably forsake the music hails for a West End theater under her Imme diate control." Meanwhile the subject of this possip is in Paris, where, the other day. she created a furore by unexpectedly, conducting a band of music in a well known cafe to the huge deliftht of the audience. THE CIRCUS PARADE. RlnKllncr Ilrotliers Said lo Have Cine 3Inde I'n of Wonder. A circus without a circus parade would be like the play of "Hamlet" with the melan choly Dane left out. The "glorious, sun bright, glittering and gorgeously resplend ent free street parade," a the old-time cir cus bills used to call it, is generally an in dex to the show itself. A small, mean and shabby street display usually means a third-class ring performance. A splendid street spectacle, on the contraryr is a prom ise of a great exhibition in the. big tents. Rlngling Bros., whose popular big show exhibits in Indianapolis Monday, May 12, are evidently alive to this fact, for they announce the finest and most elaborate street pageant ever given by an American circus management. This parade, which will take place at 10 o'clock on the show morn ing, and pass over the principal down-town streets, is said to be not simply a collection of horses, cages, elephants and tableau floats, jumbled together without design or order, but an elaborate and gorgeous pro cessional display, admirably arranged to secure the most brilliant color effects and representing the combined elYortsof hun dreds of the world's greatest artists and decorators. The parade is divided into thir ty sections, and. while each is eomplet in itself, they constitute in unison the most resplendent and beautiful display ol' pageantry that human ingenuity and artis tic taste have ever brought to perfection. Among the most striking sections is the military division, which serves to Introduce representations of the crack military or ganizations of the world. The handsome uniforms, the bright accoutrements and the magnificently caparisoned horses ren der this picture of mimic warfare brilliant beyond anything ever before attempted. There is a mounted division o( red-coated English soldiery, a platoon of German Uhlans, a squadron of French Cuirassiers, a detachment of Cossacks from Russia, 'a company of the Mikado's Imperial Japan ese Infantrjr and a trop of I'ncle Sam's heavy cavalry. An Egyptian caravan, cross ing the desert, with its camels, drome daries, wiry Arabian horses. Bedouins of the desert. Soudanese and other strange people, vies in interest with the Boer sec tion, which illustrates a burgher commando trekking across the plains of South Africa, with its long train of ox teams and its hardy native ponies. There is a special children's section, with tiny cages and min iature Mother Goose tableaux drawn by dwarf ponies, and an entire division de voted to the sports and martial glories of old Rome, with Its gladiators, its fearless standing riders, its charioteers and its gorgeous racing chariots, so thrillingly de scribed In "Ben-Hur" and "Quo Vadis." The wild animal section contains scores of cages of rare wild beasts, many of which are displayed In open dens, the only giraffe known to exist, and a great double herd of thirty big and little elephants. The parade Is. however, simply a preliminary to the two performances to be given in Indianapo lis, at which many novel arenic features will be introduced for the first time. A Millionaire's Child. New York Mail and Express. One of the most extraordinary pictures humanity has ever witnessed may be viewed every morning uptown in this city when the child of a multi-millionaire is taken out for a morning walk. Two maids accompany the child, one walking on either side of their charge and behind these walk two men servants fellows of burly build and determined aspect, as well as sufficient avoirdupois to give a good account of themselves In a light. These men are said to be armed with revolvers of a size be fitting their own impressive proportions. There may be other guardians who form part of the protecting retinue of the child, indeed, I should not wonder If two men who may be seen lounging along, one ahead of the procession 'and one behind it, are also part of the child's entourage. The evil that men do lives after them; the good Is oft interred with their bones. Thus does the evil done by Mosher and Douglas, the burglars who abducted little Charley Ross, still rivet itself upon the minds of cur rich men with children, still strike terror to their hearts. How like a caged prisoner or a hooded falcon must this tiny heir to millions f c e 1 ! How the child must envy the ragged, smudgy-faced children of the pavement, who romp and race along as free as the wind! How gladly would the gilded captive in it golden cage exchange the entile wealth of its parents for just one day of freedom as I once knew a. little Brooklyn boy to swap a new fifty-dollar bicycle for a rose possessed by a poorer child.

In n. General Wnj- Ihe Actors Tleiierve Greater Credit than the Dramatic Writers A Conversation. Correspondence of th Indianapolis Journal. NEW YORK. May 2.-No'w, In the elev enth hour ofthe dramatic season, it may be of interest. to gather the scattered impres sions of its offerings into one brief review. Of the, American plays, for the first time produced, Clyde Fitch's "Girl and Judge" is, and remains, far and away the best. His "Way of the World" was marred by mediocre acting, but even if brilliantly in terpreted would hardly have commanded the all but unanimous verdict of praise that fell to the charming little comedy of the girl with the thievish mother. Among the other indigenous plays, two stand out conspicuously--Messrs. R. II. Davis's and Augustus Thomas's "Soldiers of Fortune," and "The Diplomat," by Mar tha Morton. In either case, however, it is the leading actor, not the play, that counts. "Soldiers of Fortune" presents a strange jumble of scenes, stirring and colorless, a considerable number of which those con cerning the passionate Spanish lady in black and her virtuous English admirer in uniform and top boots might be altogether cut out with no harm to the remainder, with which they have no organic connec tion. But these scenes serve one good pur pose: They demonstrate the amazing un selfishness of the star, Mr. Robert Edeson, who has nothing of any account to do in cr with them. I verily believe this to be the r. i ' HKKNICU iiOWAItO. With the HoMen Comedy Company at the Park this week. onlv Instance on record where a star and a rising one at that shows such readiness for Kelf-effacement. Happily, on other oc casions he is In evidence never unduly, but enough to prove the truth of my asser tion last fall in this paper, that he is Amer ica's manliest and gentlemanliest leading man. ACTORS WORTH SEEING. When Mr. Edeson takes his gallant regi ment on the road, his wife will replace Gretchen Lyons as the heroine. To those who remember Mrs. Edeson as Ellen Burg, this will be gratifying news. Some years ago her acting In "The Celebrated Wom an" and "Ghosts" was among the brightest features of the local German stage. In the former play she and that sterling actor, Jacques Horwitz, made such a hit at the opening performance that their manager the very same night doubled their salary. For the sake of Mr. and Mrs. Edeson the Davis and Thomas melodramatlzed novel will be worth seeing very much worth see ing, indeed. Another actor now safely established In the foremost rank is Mr. William Collier, without a doubt our first light comedian. He is what the French call a "plnce-sans-rlre" a man seemingly quite unconscious of his own irresistible drollness. About twenty-five years ago the German actor, Gerge Engels, acted his parts in precisely the same manner and with as great suc cess, causing Gustav Von Moser to write a whole series of comedies for him some of which, "The Tassing Regiment," etc., were adapted by Augustin Daly for our stage. At this late hour, Engels is an old man with no ' successors in his .own country worth mentioning. He would readily ac knowledge Willie Collier as his spiritual relative, greeting in him not only the resur rection of his own effortless comicality, but also a kindred charm of a wholly elu sive kind Indefinable, but compelling. Doubtless nine out of ten people would name Ganthony's "Message from Mars" as the best of the Imported plays of the sea son. It did not interest mc particularly, be cause to me its whole scheme and tone, which struck New York as odd and novel, had the familiarity that begets weariness. Years ago, while living in Copenhagen, Denmark, I used to see every winter one or two fairy-tale plays constructed precisely as Mr. Ganthony's. These plays form a characteristic feature of Danish stage lit erature, there being hardly a prominent dramatist who has not attempted at least one such. Hans Christian Andersen, the greatest of all writers of fairy tales, put several of them Into dramatic form. The most popular of these was, and is, "Ole Lukoie." In this play a young workingman, dissatisfied with his humble lot, gives vent to a gnawing desire for wealth and luxury. He then goes to sleep upon the stage. The dream god, Ole Lukoie, appears to tell him that his wishes shall be fulfilled, and the remainder of the play consists of loosely, connected incidents, all tending to impress on the hero that true happiness does not consist in the possession of motiey. In one scene the young man enters a second-hand furniture shop, kept by a sort of Mcphis topheles; at once the stoves, tables and chairs begin to cavort in an uncanny way. a pair of pincers pirouetting all around the stage. In the end. after much unpleasant experience, the young man awakens and is delighteil to find that he has only been dreaming a weird but highly Instructive dream. Those that saw "A Message from Mars' will now understand why this play im pressed me rather mildly. And this Is not the only instance where, of late, a connois seur of Danish literature has had occasion to greet familiar faces on the American stage. The plot of the Englishman Mar shall's -Royal Family" is found in "The Huntsman of the Princess," by Carit Et lar. a writer who. for brevity's sake, may b styled the Dumas senior of Denmark. Th! season Amelia Bingham Is producing, in mar-urly fashion, the powerful melo drama. "A Modern Magdalen." which, she probably knows why, herself, is persistently billed as "an adaptation from the German." It is a popular play by th Danish lawyer uad dramatist, Edgar Hoyer "The Jensen, f ' Vi- x 31 Family" and no more German than the beautiful Miss Bingham Is Hottentot. GERMAN ADAPTATIONS. Not that the German stage is yet entire ly exhausted as far as material for Ameri can adaptation and appropriation Is con cerned. Mr. Dietrichstein, himself, by birth, a German, has recently brought out some thing which he calls "The Last Appeal," an "original" drama. It may be original with him. but if so. it is a case of two great minds doing the same thing unwit tingly. For. barring the modern costumes in Mr. Dietrichsteln's work, this seems lit tle more than a translation of the vener able "Philippine Weiser," by Oskar von Redwitz. However, a foreign proverb says that even a blind chicken may 'now and then find a grain, and the plot of the two dramas is of the kind that Mr. Dietrich Stein might have discovered unaided. A deservedly prosperous season at the Empire Theater Is now In Its last stage with an excellent performance of Oscar Wllde'p airiest comedy, "The Importance of Being Earnest." Mr. Charles Frohman has several marked uccesses on record this season, and so has a manager of a, some what different kind, who also gives his performances in th Empire Mr. Franklin Sargent, president of the American Acad emy of Dramatic Arts. Of all his matinees in the past winter, the one that will linger the longest In memory was Bjornson's "Pastor Lang." which Mrs. Patrick Camp bell gave under the name of "Beyond Hu man Power." The debutante who took Mrs. Campbell's part in Mr. Sargent's perform ance, though capable and sympathetic, could not bear comparison with the English actress as. indeed, was to be expected. But for the rest, Mr. Sargent and hi3 stage manager, Mr. Charles Jehlinger, covered themselves with the most beautiful of lau rels by the earnest, respectful simplicity, the deep, poetic sentiment with which they conducted and imbued the acting of all the many parts, and the general staging. And of this spirit pitifully little was noticeable in Mrs. Campbell's surroundings. Virtue should bo its own reward, but it never hurts to draw attenn to the fact that occasionally It also earns palpable re muneration. So general has the approval of the work of Mr. Sargent and his pupils been this year, in the press and privately, that at the rresent writing, hardly a month after the graduation exercises of the senior class, fourteen of the graduates havo ac cepted good engagements, while two have declined such because they fancy they can afford to wait for something still better. Such facts speak volumes, especially when one considers that amdVg the positions al ready obtained are a leading one in "The World Against Her," filled by Laura Wall; another such In James Neil's stock com pany, Marion Stone; one In Maude Ad ams's support, Martin Merle; in Richard Mansfield's, Evelyn Emerson, etc. THE EDUCATIVE DRAMA. Before closing, the following bit of con versation between two schoolgirls was over heard the othej day: Daisy (eighteen years old) Have you been to the theater recently, Pearl? Pearl (fifteen) No, but my mpther was last Saturday. She saw Du Parry. Daisy Oh, they tell me it is grand! Did your mother like it? Pearl Of course! Only she said it was too sad, the way they treated that lovely woman. Daisy I heard something; about that. Don't they kill her? Pearl Cut her head oft! Yes! Daisy They say that is historical. But why did they do it? Who was she, any way? Pearl I'll tell you. She was a sweet, pret ty girl, and so intelligent! The- King made her acquaintance and wanted her to live In the castle, to give him good advice, you know. She did that, but when the King proposed to marry her she said no! For she. was engaged to a poor young man, and she was determined to stick to him. Wasn't that nice? Daisy Lovely! And what happened then? Pearl I don't know exactly mamma didn't tell me but in the last act there was the revolution. You know all the rab ble In Paris, the Anarchists they went around and killed all the best people. So, of course, they had to kill Du Barry too! Daisy The beasts! And then there are persons who persist in denying the educational value of our modern stage. JOAKIM REINHARD. A Yesterday. There was a day, a yesterday. When, wandering in the land of May, I breathed the beauty of the dawn Among the clouds of rose and fawn, And fang the rapture of the morn. As, once again, the sun was born. To-day, the fields of May ar green; In glory, dawn and day are seen; For me. the light from earth is gone: Through alien scenes I wander on And dreara. while breathing aira of May, Of that long-vanished yesterday.

A short time ago he attended a children's birthday luncheon, and it was observed that he hard 1 touched anything that was put before htm, while he had a weary and uninterested look, uncommon In his case at meal time. "Why, Harold." said his anxious hostess, taking him a.slde afterward, "what is the matter? You had no appetite at luncheon." "Well," said Harold impatiently, 'you see mother said that J was always disgracing her with my big appetite. So she made me eat ten bowls of rice before I left home." An Embarrassing; Situation. Philadelphia Record. "You may talk all you please about the embarrassing situations absentmidedness brings one into." said a pretty girl to her companion, in Broad-street Station yester day, "but I think force of habit Is just as bad sometimes. You know mamma is of German extraction and taught us at home always to say 'gesundheit' when one of the others would sneeze, until it became second nature with us.
