Alberta Gallatin Greatly I'leases
Topeka Andieuce.
A Perfect Portrayal of Vivacious
Nell Gwynn.
Simplicity and Naturalness Her
Says 31 rs. Nation Would Mate
Dime 31useum Freak.
Without a piece of special scenery
and dependent only upon her acting Al
berta Gallatin scored a decided triumph
at the Grand last night as the vivacious
"Nell Gwynn," who has lately been re
vived by the histotians and playwrights.
It was Miss Gallatin's efforts alone
whicl decided the success of the per
formance. After the third act she re
ceived three curtain calls and was
warmly applauded during the last act.
It seems that Cator Heverin, who is re
sponsible for the historical comedy
drama, has wasted opportunities in the
first two acts. They are not particularly
strong, and beyond giving "Nell Gwynn"
and -"Charles Stuart, king of Kngland,"
a chance to display their true characters
and to reveal the plot against the king,
tnere is very little in the two acts, and
the audience may begin to wonder if
"Nell Gwynn," the passionate, frivolous
and most talked of woman in Kngland
of her time, is to go on through the four
acts without any opportunities. There
are opportunities, however, and Miss
Gallatin mads the most of them. In the
third act, in the apartments of "Lord
Buckhurst," where the plotters of the
king have entrapped him, "Nell Gwynn,"
heretofore the mischievous maid, be
comes a woman; a woman full of loyalty
and love and ready to sacrifice herself
for the life and honor of her lover, the
king. She is Mistress Nelly of old
Drury no longer, and no longer the silly
nillv companion of the courtiers and
Charles Stuart, but the defender of the
The last act. at the "Crowing Hen
Inn," is where the audience does not wait
for the curtain to fall but applauds
right in the midst of the excitement as
"Nell Gwvnn" dances before the
drunken allies of "Wye" in order to gain
time that the king may be rescued.- In
the wild abandon of the dance, as she
dodges around the room to the plaudits
and Jibes of the drunken ruffians, snap
pin? her fingers in time to the reckless
fandango. and smiling as bewitchingly at
the swains as she did at the lords and
ladies, the climax to the short story of
Sw eet Nell of old Drury !s reached, and
Heverin is forgiven and his reason un
derstood for making the first two acts
vehicles for the heroine's piquancy as a
contrast to her strength and cunning in
the last.
Miss Gallatin's acting leaves nothing
wanting. It does not seem that any
other actress' conception of the char
acter could be better. The charm of her
acting is the simplicity and naturalness.
Not once, even in the wildest scenes,
does Miss Gallatin overdo the part in
the least. Many who saw her may com
pare her in many ways to Mrs. Fiske.
There Is a reminder in Miss Gallatin's
wavs of the portrayer "Becky Sharp."
Miss Gallatin's supporting company is
not as strong as could be desired. The
"Charles Stuart" of Allen Davenport is
not as pleasing as it might be. although
Davenport is an actor of ability. Arthur
Rutledge as "Captain Rupert Wyborne'
seems to be the strongest in the support
of Miss Gallatin. Margaret Dale Owen
as "Mistress Betty Fairfield" pleased
the audience, both -on account of her
pref- face and good acting.
There were a few funny incidents in
the plav not calculated to be there. In
the third act "Nell Gwynn" and
"(Charles Stuart" were to be seated to
gether on a sofa. Instead of a sofa the
property man had secured a large arm
chair, and when the king and "Nell
Gwynn" unbent themselves to be seated
they sank into the chair, or tried to.
together and it looked as if something
must give way. But nothing gave in
the least, and they were wedged in to
gether between the narrow arms of the
chair. The audience laughed, and so
did the ever vivacious Nellie.
Miss Gallatin was much interested in
Mrs. Nation. "This is the scene of Mrs.
Nation's exploits, is it not?" she asked.
"Well, I have followed her pretty close
ly in the papers. Do I think she could
make a success on the stage? No: the
davs of sensationalism of that kind are
over. She might do in a dime museum
as a freak, but not on the stage." Miss
Gallatin was abroad last summer, and
while in Kngland bought a copy of a
painting of Nell Gwynn, and from that
painting her wig maker in New York
patterned the dark auburn wig she wore
as the character. Miss Gallatin is a de
cided brunette.

Ringree Sees Chamberlain.
London. March 6. Former Governor
Pingree of Michigan spent half an hour
last evening with Mr. Chamberlain, the
colonial secretary, discussing the war in
South Africa, whither Mr. Pingree will
soon go on business. While Mr. Cham
berlain did not refer to the negotiations
row in progress for the surrender of
General Louis Botha he told Mr. Pin
gree that he failed to see how the Boers
could hld out much longer. Mr. Pin
gree who was greatly impressed by the
Colonial secretary said after the inter
view: "I never sat down with a more
democratic gentleman. I always knew
he was a brainy man, but I must con
fess he surprised me."

right in the matter? The meeting was
really a remarkable one. A. competent
reporter might have made huge, legiti
mate capital out of it for the Journal's
side. Mr. Gleed's soeech was fearfully,
chillingly vulnerable. Some others
largely so. The strongest and really
onlv argument in favor of Mr. Hughes
was that he is, all things considered,
less objectionable than Mr. Warner.
In many respects the meeting resembled
an ordinary ward heelers' meeting, ex
cept that every one present was actu
ated by a high and pure motive a desire
to conserve the best interests of the city
if he knew how to do it. There was a
doubt how best to secure this result.
Not one speaker expressed entire con
fidence in his candidate. One plainly de
clared he could not support Mr. Hughes.
There were two meetings. In the in
terim informal discussions were had.
Mr. Hughes was favored by most of
those present, but under protest, plainly
expressed, a sentiment manifestly gen
eral throughout the city anions his sup
porters. After most of those in attend
ance had gone, including Mr. Gleed, Mr.
Hughes arrived and a few returned to
hear him. In his remarks he named
some business men who are supporting
him, among whom were some recognized
as not friendly to the cause of prohibit
tion. At that time I was opposed to
Hughes, and I became more so after
that meeting, while not favoring War

Interesting Papyri Which Have Been
Discovered in Egypt
New York, March 6. According to a
Tribune special from Bosf--n, the Rev.
Dr. Wm. C. Winslow. vice president of
the Egyptian exploration fund there is
authority -for the statement that in ad
dition to the papyrus of St. Matthew's
Gospel sent to the University of Penn
sylvania that of St. Paul's Kpistle to ihe
Rorr.ans, presented to Harvard two eth
er extremely interesting panyrl are yet
to be assigned. One is that of John
which contains eighteen verses of chap
ter 1 and 14 verses or chapter XX. In
the first part are the words "Behold the
lamb of God which taketh r.wav the sin
of the world." and "We have found the
Messiah." In chapter XX is the memor
able story of Mary at the sepulchre.
This papyrus of St. John in book form
contained about fifty pages. Dr. Wins-low-
says, and only the outer leaves are
preserved. He says that the document
is better written than the c5t. Matthew
papyrus and is in harmonv with the
famous text of Westcott and Hart. The
papyrus is dated 200 A. D., or a little
later and is pronounced only a little
later than the S.t. Matthew text. The
confirmation of the text of the present
version is absolute.
Dr. Winslow says that th papyrus of
St. Mark although only a fragment is
most precious, containing in the few
verses of chapters X and XI specific
facts of the life of Jesus. The manu
script resembles the famous Codex Alex
andrinus, now in the British museum
and agrees with our "standard version.
Its age is between 400 and 500 A. D.
Other papyri sent to Philadelphia not
yet announced include historical tables
of emperors from Augustus to Decius a

are now termed for a loan, a lun in

Married Wellington Man Attempted
to "Elope With Young GirL
Wellington, March 6 City Marshal
Cox stopped something: yesterday which
would have resulted 'in bigamy and pos
sibly murder had the plans of a mar
ried man living in the First ward and a
girl not quite sixteen years old been
carried out.
The man and fdrl were preparing to
elope, and everything- was in readiness
for them to leave the city together
Thursday. The man went to Wichita
last week and secure t a marriage li
cense. The girl purchd.sei clothing at
a dry goods store to the amount of
$40.36, and at one of the jewelry stores
to the amount of nearly $10. The cloth
ing and jewelrv were given to the man
and he had left part of it in a store
and the remainder of it in a room in the
second story of on rf the .business
houses on Washington avenue, until
thev were ready to elope.
The discoverv of the plans was due
to the man telling his wife that one of
the officers had given him until Thurs
day to leave town. The man's wife went
to 'the officer to learn if the story was
true. The officer was surprised at the
storv, and an investigation revealed the
plans of the man and girl. The clothing,
jewelry and marriage license were
found where the man had left them.
