Richard Mansfield's long-anticipated production of "Julius Caesar" was made at the Grand Opera house, Chicago, last week. It seems to have been the artistic triumph of this great act#r's career. Mr. Mansfield played Brutus. The keynote of his conception of the part, isays the Record-Herald, was the note of ineffable pathos. This Mansfield Brutus is the saddest, sweetest, gentlest creature that destiny ever played with and then cast pitilessly aside. Almost never-and then only so fleetingly that it serves but to accentuate the more poignantly the bitter sorrow of Brutus' fate-is the note of ex ultation sounded. This is not a Brutus to bring tears to your eyes while you are actually watching him in the theater. It will make too severe demands upon your thinking powers for that. But later, when you have pondered over the noble outlines of Mr. Mansfield's reverent study you will discover the overwhelming pathos of it, a pathos which is the more heart-searching because it is so serene, so entirely free from hysteria. There is a phrase, "noble grief," and the grief of this Brutus lies in its nobility, its emotional chastity, its dis dain of the easy and immediate mnethoos for compelling sympathy. All of these phases of Mr. Mansfield's conception are intensilied by the lavishness of the investiture he has given the play. In a way one is surfeitjll and dazzled with splendors. The temiples, the streets, the Interiors of imperial iome have been re produlced on a massive and gorgeous scale. Tlhe blaze of the Italian sun, the yellow glow of torches, the flash of lightnings i..u mine the scenes. P'ageants, mobs, troops of soldiery, move across the radiant back grounds; but standing out above thetm all. serene, pensive, gentle, is the figure of Btrittus, exult iug in no triumph, besmirched by no hint of greed, and--this invari ably---sadde:erl by the intuition that tie great sacrilice will be in vain, that the be loved people will cling to the false gods, that the-end of the strife and the suffering will bc--niothing save the setting of an ex ample. A NOTABLE WEEK. James Neill and Company to Appear at the Broadway in Brilliant Repertoire. The repertoire which James Neill and the Neill company will present in Butte at Sutton's Broadway theater the coming week, beginning Sunday, is certainly the most orilliant that has ever been attemptc'l by any dramatic organization in a single week in the history of the local stage. On Sunday and Monday evenings Ed ward F. Rose's dramatization of Stanley Weymnan's great romantic novel, "Under The Red Robe," will be presented. Though its action occurs in a romantic period and its utterance is brightened by heroics, its characters are not impossible nor its situations strained. It has been widely described as a most admirable piece of playwriting, ann, besides presenting real characters, forcibly discusses a typical problem in right and wrong. As a cos tume play with picturesque settings, a ro msantic atmosphere with dashing action, SCENE FROM "THE STARBUCKS." O piee: d C t T Wek. Opie Read's Character Play to Be Produced by the Neill Company at the Broadway This Week without mawkish sentimentality or strained tlhcatricalism it is said to have not been surpassed in recent years. ()n Tuesday evening there will be seen fn . tih' ihisI 'tine in this city, "I ion. John Grigs.y," So: Smith Russell's last and best comedly-draima success. 'this is the play in ahlich MMr. Russell was appearing at the Grantll ipea'. house,- Chicago, at the time that ihe was atricken with his fatal ailment. The play, originally written by Charles Klein for Sol Smith Russell, is one in whl:!. succesi or failuse must depend upon the personality, and in a lessend degree, upon the ability of its chief actor. It is dilfuse and wiitten along lines of well tried theatrical expedient. The character of Jdin Grigsby, however, has been built up with great skill and offers opportunities for an actor of quiet, legitimate methods. M.r. Neill in this play is said to exhibit the repose that comes to actors only a't:r years of training-and even the;n com.n s tIot to many. His part allords chances to riwi above the level of conventional toune a..l throughout he is said to he effective by delicate shadings and a power to conver subtleties of thought without uotl.te emphasis of speech or gestutre. The hits of humor which lighten the p t of John Grigsby are said to be spoken: wiil that unction which makes for the st'gges. tion of spontaniety. and in the occasional more violent mpments the actor plays iii a correct key of emotional excitement. Co' siderstion of the "Hon. John (;rigshy" mtnust deal largely with Mr. Neill perso;n ally.

Purely an American play, depicting love and pathos, hate and passion, a play that touches the heart strings-such is "The Convict's Daughter," which comes to the Grand soon. It is the kind of play that pleases, its intensely dramatic situation being fraught with more than ordinary interest. An unequalled company has beien en gaged for this: production, each member being chosen because of a particular fitness for the part assigned. In a scenic way also "The Convict's l)aughltcr," will be well staged and the patrons of the Grand may expect to see in this produc tion one of thec most delightful treats of the season at this popular play house. STORY NOT A MYTH. "Barbara Frietchie," Soon to Be Seen at the Grand, Is Founded on Facts. When Whittier immortalized Barbara Frietchie he builded a song of fact and fancy that has given rise to more or less speculation over this heroine. Clyde Fitch has added much to the popularity of this remarkable character through his great war dralmsa by that tnamte, which is .011n to ie ptoduiced in this city by Mary' 'lizah:eh Forbes and an excellent com p,:n} . In s;,itCe f its solid Ioundation on11 fact there has hecn since a very wide sjread' hitlief that t was aill a legend. aid t!u.t Iarbara was no mlore than a v'ery pleasant and itspiring myth. This is in itself a rank injustice. In t;,1t she was one of a party who entertailned George Washingtln at the Frederick tavern. She marrired lohn Frictchie, a glove maker, mho died in 1R40. Ilis adopted daughtgr and grand-niece, Mrs. Abbott, still lives to Frederick. Maryland, and own. the cele Irated flag that Blarbara 'hook in "the face of the rebel for." MASCAGNI'S TOUR.
