or either the first or the second Duchess of
Devonshire. Mr. Morgan can be congratulated
apon owning one of the most charming and
artistic works of English portraiture.
The Duchess must be at her best, for a brill
iant company has gathered around her. At the
end of the. gallery is Gainsborough's noble and
Ftately portrait of Viscountess Ligonier. one of
the masterpieces of portrait painting, and to
right and to left are his grim Sir William
Blackstone. his exquisitely painted Dr. Isaac
Henrique Sequeria. and one of his lovely pas
toral landscapes. From Blenheim has been lent
one of Sir Joshua F.eynoids's incomparable
works, the Duchess of Marlborcugh and child.
and further along on the wall Is another por
trait by the same hand, a boy holding a bunch
of grapes. There are two Hoppners, a brilliant
portrait of Mary Stuart Wortley and an even
more noteworthy one of the Hon. Miss Emma
Crewe. which reveal all the splendors and
subtleties of his method of painting. The sec
end Hoppner would be a prize for any Ameri
can collection. There ere three exquisite Bom
ney? — the restful Mrs. Canning and child, the
familiar Mrs. Robert Trotter, of Bush, and the
vivacious Mrs. Jordan, the actress. There are
three -works by Sir Henry Raeburn — Wil
k»l-r.:-a Robs. Alicia. Lady Stewart of Coltneas,

is Sir W. Beechey*s excellent portrait of him

Mr Wat's has as many as seven portraits in
tk* three galleries, and -while his force is abating
**•■!: age, his touch is still sure and his color
**■** true. The deeply lined face of the Earl
°- Shrewsbury is firmly drawn and carefully
Csodelled. and it emerges with calm dignity lrom

tborne, with blond hair and hat and dress to
a fi-tch her blue eyes. Is sketched with unstudied
. simplicity. Near by is sturdy John Burns, in
rough flannel shirt and loose tie. the embodl
»fnt of self-respecting labor. The gray eyes
•re well painted; there is strength in the coarse
features and dignity in the pose of the head
•■Ed In th* gray hair and beard, and the char
acter of an earnest and noble champion of labor
** revealed in the steadfast gaze and the trans
harent sincerity of the expression. The Mar
chioness of Northampton occupies the central
•Pace in the long wall where Sir Edward Burne
***« a romances of his dream world were seen
year after year. The draughtsmanship may not
be so noticeable for strength as that of the last
portrait, but the fig"ur» is admirably modelled,
and the color scheme of browns and grays is a
beautiful one. Sir Benjamin Brodie's dignified
face shines out from a Venetian red background
toned down by black. In the south room there
is an excellent likeness of Mr. Charles Booth
and a strongly drawn portrait of Professor
Flinders Petrie. -who from prolonged study of
archaeology and contemplation of the relics of
bygone ages has come to have an inscrutable
and almost Egyptian face. These seven por
traits, while unequal to the splendid series in the
National Portrait Gallery, are the most Impor
tant pictures -which Mr. Watts has exhibited in
a ions; time.
The srreat west room is filled with pictures of
tall English -women standing: in the open air
and wearing clothes In the latest styles. It la

with the picturesque and artistic costumes of
the olden time. Mr. Kennington's portrait of
his daughter. Mr. Dv Mont's portrait of his wife
and Mr. Harrington Mann's portrait of his
daughter are among- these tail women, and there
are many more. Mr C. H. Shannon has an
elaborately painted lady with a Chines© fan. in
which attention is distracted from a good sub
ject to a blur of bright pigment. Mr. J. J.
Shannon has three examples of a much higher
order of portraiture. One is a portrait of a
child. Lord Roos. with a big: dog. It is solidly
painted," and has brilliancy and distinction of
style. Another excellent child portrait Is that
of Gerard Thornton from the same hand, and
there is a charming study of veiled light In his
portrait of Marjory Shannon, with her wistful,
girlish face and transparent blue eyes. Mr.
John Lavery also has a strong group of por
traits, the best being- those of Mrs. Arthur
Franklin, in black hat. gray gown, blue ribbons
and clusters of pearls, and of Mme. la Ha
ror.ne de H . well modelled and finely posed.
Professor Yon Lenbach has a grim portrait cf
Emperor Frederick, and Mr. George Sauter a
subtle study of the Sicilian face of Cardinal
Rampolla in h : s scarlet robes. Mr. Robert
Brough's portrait of Mr. Stopford Brooke is an
other striking work. The Scotch school is well
represented in these galleries, and the exhibit
on the whole is varied and interesting, revealing
the conscientious work done by the younger and
more promising painters. I- N. F.
To the Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: I notice with great interest in the issue of
The Tribune of this date the suggestion that fire.
life and marine insurance companies should be
brought under the supervision of the proposed Fed
eral Department of Commerce and Industries. The
suggestion is ore that will meet the commendation
of all who are interested in the business of insur
ance in any of its branches in this country.
The idea is not new. Several movements look
ing to the same end have been instigated, but they
have very generally failed or have met with dis
approval, even among those who might be supposed
to favor such a movement, by reason of the rather
revolutionary character of the legislation proposed.
In the first place, previous proposals have looked
to the establishment of a separate Federal bureau or
office devoted specifically to the supervision of in
surance Interests. it is not necessary to submit
arguments to show that such a proposal is In
comparably at a disadvantage with a proposition
which simply mentions insurance as one of a num
ber of commercial Interests, the supervision of
which is intrusted to a department of the Federal
Government presided over by a Cabinet officer.
In the second place, previous proposals have in
dicated the desire to abolish the State insurance
departments, placing all their duties in charge of a
Federal bureau. Such a proposition is not only
obviously impracticable, but most unwise. The
State insurance departments are features of the
police duties of the individual State, the continu
ance of whose organization Is an inalienable right
of the State. What is needed in the way of Fed
eral legislation is simply such action as will Insure
that, under the authority of a department of com
merce, that is to say, under a Federal license, com
panies transacting the business of the Insurance
may be permitted to transact their business in all
the States of the Union, subject only. In addition to
the Federal license, to the authority of the Insur
ance Department of the State in which they are or
ganized. The burdens, grievous to be borne, that are
heaped upon the insurance companies of a.I kinds
that are now doing business In this count arise
from the fact that they are subject to the dictates
often whimsical, of at least forty-five supervising
officials located in as many-different States The sit
uation «ought to be evolved is analogous to that de
veloped by the National Banking act which causes
the obligations of any national bank to pass cur
rent In all the States and Territories of the Union.
In the same way. what Is desired, so far as the in
-urance interests are concerned. is that any such
corporation, properly licensed by the Insurance Bu
reau of the State, of Its creation, shall, by virtue
I' a Federal license granted under the supervision
of a national officer, be thereby allowed to trans
act its business without interference In all the
other States of the Union end would in no way
Letri«lation looking to this end would in no way
imnaVanv legitimate rights or powers of the btate*.
They could and would retain their powers over the
companies of their own creation, and the right of
f4^r -ing agents of all companies to act as such
would still remain. All the legitimate advantages
That accrue to the State from the department
would still be available The advantages tnat
would accrue to the insurance Interests and to the
public whom they serve are too many to be de
teiled. additional security being ; one i m thra.

In the Manhattan Theatre last night, before a
numerous and genial audience. Mrs Fiske pro
duced a new play, entitled "The Unwelcome Mrs.
Hatch." and, with characteristic visor and orig
inality, embodied the chief part in it. The play
Is an Image of domestic catastrophe, and It ap
pears to have been made with the singl* purpose
of once more exhibiting: that old theatrical public

ment. commonplace In style, hollow. Insincere, anil
blasted with artificiality: but. at least, it can be
commended for clarity of purpose and precision of
method: it tell 3 its plate story in a. straightforward
manner. and that is a great merit. On only on«
point does it maintain a reserve: it does not dls
tinetly intimate -whether its heroine is. or is not.
an adulteress. [{ she is. her troubles are ex

heroine.— Mrs. I.orim*>r. calling herself Mrs.
Hatch." la depicted as a pood woman who I is
been victimized, partly through her own folly and
partly through the force of adverse circumstances,
and has become a martyr: and with this martyr,
not because she means anything, or r«»pr-*«-r.t»« any
thin*. or Imparts anything, but only because she
suffers, the community '.- invited to sympathise*
At the outset the observer is apprises thai Mr«.
Lorimer. frenzied with Jealous rage because of
the misconduct of her vulgar, brutish. unfaithful,
"society" husband, wrote a compromi-ir.g letter
to him (by the use of which be subsequently was
enabled to cbtaln a divorce from her); left her
New-York home; assumed the name of "Mr*.
Hat3h**; repaired to Ban Francisco, establish-!
herself 'in an honest but meagre business there:
dwelt • ere Cor twelve years: and then returned
to New- York, under the impulse of an Irresistible
desire to see her daughter— who. In the mean time.
had grown 10 womanhood and was about to be
married. These facts premised, the play proceeds
to set forth this unfortunate mother's quest of a
sight of her child: a colloquy between them, under
circumstances theatrically contrived to be of an
afflicting- character— the -rl receiving her mother's
aid as that of a milliner's servant; a fierce en
counter with Mrs. Lorimer the Second, In which
(to the general Joy), that coarse, venomous female
is so to speak, "sent heavily to grass"; and. finally,
-but not without happy recognition between mother
and daughter.-Mrs. Hatch's lapse. through
trouble indigence and heart disease, into the re
pose of death. Intertwined with this web of story
there is the thread of an amatory romance.-it
being made apparent that, while in San Francisco.
Mrs Hatch attracted the love of a good fellow,
named Trevor, and gave her heart to him. while
needlessly refusing to give her hand-or only re
fusing BO that, like Armand to Canaille, he. might
come to her deathbed. The action shows this vic
tim in various sltuations-in the company or Lori
mer who talks to her like a blackguard; in the
company of her faithful old servant, when, at Cen
tral rark she obtains a glimpse of her daughter;
and in the Lorimer tnwn house, where Miss Lori
mer and the bridesmaids are rehearsing their wed
ding march: and all this showing displays a condi
tion of shocking Injustice and protracts a spectacle
of fruitless misery. At the last, keeping the se
cret of an identity which, so far as anybody can
Fee there is no reason to conceal. "Mrs. Hatch"
find's refuge with her old servant, in a poor lodg
ing where, like Sarcisse. she talks philosophy to
an image, and, like BrummelL addresses invisible
guests: then the black curtain, and all is over.
There is. in modern fiction, a truthful and beauti
ful exposition of the central theme of this play
(the theme of maternal devotion and self-sacrifice).
and. merely by way of observing the contrast be
tween true feeling and maudlin rhapsody, true love
and theatrical affectation, the reader could not.
perhaps, do bettor than to turn from "The Unwel
come Mrs. Hatch" to Wilkie Collins's story of "The
Dead Secret." There he will find real persons, a
real plot, genuine pathos, an Ideal of passionate
maternal devotion that will make his heartstrings
tremble, and an imase of fidelity in womanhood
■that will fill his mind with exquisite delight. The
fond and faithful mother, in that case, however,
would make no figure on the stage. For theatrical
purposes this type of heroine must be a rash, im
pulsive, wayward, hysterical being, without bal
ance, without common sense, without dignity of
character, as weak as water and as wild as fire.
Mrs. Fiske'a affinities as an actress are with
strength, not weakness: intellect, not fribble;
womanly feeling, not mock heroics: humor some
what more than pathos: comedy somewhat more
than tragedy. As a suffering mother, though ef
fective, she does not carry conviction. On the
other hand. In her embodiment of "Mrs. Hatch"
Fhe has invested the character with a personal
piquancy all her own. The language of the part in
common; yet the actrees. by her flashes of Im
petuous spirit, her strokes of irony, her quick
transitions from calm to storm and from abandon
to self-control, endows it with force. The fibre of
the part Is frail: yet the actress fortifies it with a
rno\lng sense of great nervous vitality. Her man
agement of Mrs. Ha.tch's scene in the Lorimer
house is rich with variety of both eloquent ret
icence and expressive action, and her delivery of
the invective against the second Mrs. Lorimer IS
a superb outburst of righteous wrath.— for which
she was eight times recalled amid great acclaim.
The one dominant thought of the drama, perhaps, is
the thought inclosed m this denunciation-that the
worst injuries under which women suffer are those
that other women inflict upon them. In all that
she- does Mrs. Flske is peculiar and interesting,
and this later achievement, while undoubtedly it
will please a multitude of sentimental women,
seems likely also to impress her more thoughtful
admirers with a still keener sense of her versatile
skilL The part must make a prodigious draft upon
the strength or the actress, for ah* is on the
seen-?, almost without !nt<»rmission. throughout
th» whole four acts.
The play is tumid and diffuse sentimentality, but.as
Interpreted by Mrs. Flske and her zealous company.
It la made to. look like truth; and there is enough
in it. about motherhood, and children, and domestic
distress and scandalous social misdemeanor, to
cat' that vacuous organization called "the smart
set," and so, possibly, it will have a career. The
subsidiary parts in it are mostly feeders to "Mrs.
Hatch." The second Mrs Lorimer is made an ef
fectively spiteful rat by Miss Morretti. while a
cental, effusive Irish servant is heartily, humorous
ly and thoroughly well acted by Annie Ward Tif
fany. Mr. ! K>dson grimly presents a social cad.
and Mr. Halnea maintains his gravity as one of
those serenely philosophic men of the world who. —
at least In the Pinero and Grundy drama of this
favored period,— are always ready to marry women
who hay» "soiled their wings " Everything need
ful has iwn done to invest The Unwelcome Mr.
