THE NATIONAL THEATRE.
Enthusiastic Women Pledged to Work for Its Establishment. "This organization is pledged to make a propa ganda for the cause of a national art theatre,*' said Mrs. Sydney Roser.feld in presiding, vice Miss Julia Marlowe, over a very enthusiastic meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary to the National Art The atre Society, at the New-York College of Music ■yesterday. "By entertainment, by letter and by conversa tion we are to interest people In the Idea of an en dowed theatre, in which native genius in author ship ar.d acting may be fostered— a great theatre, Independent of the ordinary risks of management. But "we are no: looking for small contributions from our members, and we are not opposed to theatrical syndicates. What we want to do is to create ar. artistic atmorphere right here, and to create & market for the works of American play rights, so that managers won't have to cross the water to buy foreign plays, often of Inferior work xnanshir and low morals." There were a pood many interesting people in tne room. Among theni were Mrs. Ravenhlll. Miss ... Grey. Mrs. Arthur Homblow. Miss Mor pan of Chicago; Mrs. Allys True Gentle, who de lighted the audience with two songs; Mrs. Florence Brook?. Mrs. Joseph I. C. Clarke. Mrs. M. F.londa. A'lsF Care! Parrieh. Miss Blanche Walsh.

"I once heard a your.g girl J=ay she had had diffl cnlty in finding a play to which it was safe to take her mother." said Mrs. Grace Baylor Clarke, who gave an account of what the National Art Theatre stood for. And when a smile went round j "I know that sounds funny." She said, "but there is a good deal of Truth in it. all the same.

The cause of balking. Miss Messinger states, lies back of the horse, and it is unreason able as well as futile, to abuse the animal for what is the, fault of his driver, past or present. He balks, as a rule, because at some time he has been overloaded, though at the precise time of his refusing to move his load may be light.

About a hundred Mount people attended the wedding of Miss Amy Beatrice L» Page to Arthur Fowler Babcock, which took place at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Le Papre, in that city, on Tuesday evening.

Five-year-old Harold had been promised a "whole day in the country to-morrow, if it doesn't rain." and he went to sleep with fairyland visions danc ing through his busy little brain. With the first of dawn he awoke, but only to hear the doleful drip of the rain on the streets ■ "Can't go," he walled; "don't see what it had to go and rain for just this one day."' "But you mustn't talk that way" soothed his mother; " "God sends the rain, you know, and he knows better than we do." After a moment or two of dead silence, she turned to note the effect of her admonition, and lound the pmall boy in the crib at her side In wnat appeared to be a violent convulsion. His fare was distorted in the most hideous fashion, and his f< atures relaxed only to assume a still more horri- Dle form His eyes were fixed on the ceiling, anu his tongue from time to time shot snake-like out of his mouth.

Till in heaven the deed appear*- NOTICE READING THE TRIBUNE PATTERN WOMEX AXD POLITICS R. Fulton Cutting Puts Burden of Fall Campaign on Their Shoulders. Preparations for the coming campaign were dis cussed at the closing meeting of the Women's Municipal League yesterday afternoon, ar.d the speakers combined to place the whole responsibility for the issue on the shoulders of the women of the city. "It is the absence of the residential vote which defeats the forces of good government in this city." said Miss Margaret Astor Chanler. president of the Women's Municipal League, "and the absence of the residential vote is due to the fact tnat the women go away and shut up their houses. If we want the men to register and vote we have got to come to town, and if we can't do that we must make the men realize that we do not wish them to be absent on polling days." "If we lose this election." said R. Fulton Cutting, who had been asked to make some suggestions as to the place of women in the campaign, "we -will lose It not because of the excellent organization of Tammnny. or because of the opposition of the Ger man element, or because of discontent with Mr. Low's administration. We will lose it simply be cause of the apathy of the virtuous and intelligent men of this city, who Tvould rather spend Election Day out of town than do their duty as citizens. It is for the women to waken people from this apathy and bring thorn to the polls, and I believe they can do more to attain this end than any other agency. "We look to the women," continued Mr. Cutting, "to throw into any political campaign its sentiment. Keep at the subject ofrthe moral element cf politics and leave the business and economic Issues to the men It might be a good thing to write a letter, through the newspapers, to the men. just before registration and election days, insisting upon the sentimental phase of the contest. Do not make use of statistics, as these, except -when they come through the living voice, gain no votes, but give a few telling facts about the work of the Tene ment House Commission and the Charities Depart ment under the present administration and the extraordinary beneficence of the Health Depart ment. Put into the letter all the sentiment you can get in, and have it signed by a good many young- women prominent in society, literature and the professions, and I believe it wlll do much good. You will want a considerable amount of other literature, too. but not statistics, and con taining always sentiment." Referring to the prospects of the- campaign, Mr. Cutting pointed out that Tammany had been beaten three times in the last thirty-four years and each time the reform forces had gone In on a wave of indignation. "This time," he said "the situation is different. W r e now have the best administration since the incorporation of the city. The times are The BaMnacarra property was a very pretty one. It comprehended some miles of wood and water, a grouse mountain, a trout stream. There was a Dig nouse, with a courtyard at the back, in a state of ruinous disrepair. it had acres of grass, long ranges of outbuildings. Fortunately, bir Adrian Ingtstre's purse was equal to making it all as good as new again. Tue place was full of work men, the noiso of hammering' resounded all day long. As noon as a few rooms were ready for occupa tion, Sir Adrian had moved in. He was delighted with his Irish property, none the less because he had bought it for a song. His English friends were glad to Keep him company where there was such, sport to be had. The county was ready to receive him. Only two people held coldly aloof. They were his nearest nelgnbor, tne .Prince of Krrfs. and his granddaughter, ivaiiialeen O'Driscoli. As it happened, the Prince's property made a wedge in BalUnacarra land, it was a email wedge, but it spoiled any chance of inclosing Ballinacarra within a ring fence. It was a wild, overgrown place, a wilderness by Bailinacarra which bad been at some time a well kept park, and would be again now it was an Englishman's property. Sir Adrian Ingestre had come into the country with a kindly heart toward ali its inhabitants. He haa no idea of making a Naboth s Vineyard of tne Prince's wild piece or bog and n»ountiun. In fact, he was going tv call on ih^ rii.oe 10 ask him to make one of i.is party of guns, vvt.cn another neigh bur, Lacy Derrymor*, warned him or tne Indiscre tion lie was a^uui to commlu The occasion was a oance. following a dinner at Deiryl-eg. m* hodtfeas bad been very kind to him. in fact, her Irish sottneas ot speecu arid manimi i.aa maiie Him her at >.uteii slave. "1 want to dauce," he said to her, "with the little girl in the green frock, who has, tne eyes of a mountain pony." Lady Derrymore looked the way he Indicated. There was a shy child, with a go.Uen brown htad and extraordinarily bright eyes under a tangle of lashes. Sne was looking their way, and at the moment her expression was one of the utmost re bentment. _ "I uaien't do it." she said, laughing, "why, that Is 0 Driscoll's granddaughter, little Kathaleen. Don't you know that they hate you like poison?" "I didn't know anything of the sort," he said bluntly. "May 1 ask why?" "Because Ballinacarra is O'Driscoll land. Because they are banished to the waste and derelict bit of the property. Because you're restoring Bailinacarra. Because we've all received you. and with constitu tional inertness allowed you to take a leading place among us. Because — you talk of starting a pack c" deprhounds. They do not consider that the sale of Ballinacarra Included the deer. My d»ar Sir Adrian the deer belong to none of us. Occasionally they swim th*> river to us. and we might well call them ours The original deer forest, the last bit of It that remains, certainly belongs to the Prince." "The deer were mentioned In the inventory of mv property. They feed in my park all day. After all my project of the hounds was a dim and distant ore For the present I am quite satisfied with the fox hunting especially since you have made me master. They mirht have postponed their hatred til! ! had given them cause." "You've riven them plenty. * laughed Lady Derry more "O'Driscoll hasn't pat his leg across a horse these twenty year?, yet th»y recent our giving- you : v. mastership.

The door was opened to him by an old man In a shabby suit of livery. When be had heard the visitor's name his face assumed the oddest mixt ure of comical perplexity and a dogged deter "^^ernow^ar.'^rTe said, looking furtively behind him. "I wouldn't take in that name not If you give me Darner's fortune. 'Tis one of the mas ter's bad days.

The divll a. lie In it." Since Sir Adrian Ingestre could not storm the Prince of Erris in his own stronghold, he was obliged to retire, not knowing whether to feel angry or amused. During the winter that followed there were sev eral unpleasant incidents in connection with the hunting There were protests against the hunt crossing their lands from farmers who had never objected before. Once or twice the riders were met by a group of peasants carrying pitchforks and other unpleasant implements. tv,.^, "Thev learnt the way of It," said Lady Dem more. "in the Land League times; but they haven t been putting It into practice since we declared peace all round. Upon my word. Sir Adrian, it a too bad seeing ail the employment you ye been giv ing in the country; but if it goes on we have to ask Colonel O'Connor to sacrifice himself for the rest of us and take the hounds. It's all the old Prince It's surprising what influence he has "It's always easy to influence the people badly said Sir Adrian, with an outburst of spleen which showed that he had been hard hit by the failure he had looked like to be as master. It was no later than the Tuesday after that the hounds, having lost an old dog fox at the Lohort Spinney; gave cry again as they were being led home to the kennels. The members of the hunt had dispersed Slowly and sadly. The master, the hunts man and the whlpper in. with a few Idlers, were all that remained. It was a winter afternoon, cold ard bright with the yellow leaves yet shivering on the trees, since there hadn't been a gale to bring The hounds were let slip and disappeared into the solnnev The huntsman gave "Tally-ho!" although there were none but themselves to hear It. They swept through the spinney and out into the open country beyond, then made for Bargy Woods. Down the side of a ravine, up the other, went the hounds giving tongue. Sir Adrian riding behind them. It was rough riding, for the woods were full of the stumps of trees that had been lately felled, and once or twice Sir Adrian's mare stumbled with him but regained her footing. Once he was down. By the time he was up again and in the saddle he heard the furious barking of the hounds at a dis tance. They were evidently at fault: the quarry had slipped Into a drain or otherwise baffled them. Sir Adrian looked round for the huntsman: he was not in sight. He rode on where the yelping of the hounds led him. Presently he came out in the mid.ll" of a little glade The dogs voices were deafenlna by this time; They were leaping like mad below a great chestnut tree, their sharp, ex cited faces turned upward to the tree, their tongues panting, their tail* going like mad. Sir Adrian sod© into the midst of them, looked up prosperous, airi tinder these circumstances tne seal of men. If not of women. 1b prone to flag. We are altogether too virtuous. If the other side were doing something that we could complain of. the problem would be much simpler Nevertheless, there is no reason for discouragement. If this- tide Is setting in any direction, it is in favor of fusion. A few mornings ago 1 was visited by two men of opposite political persuasion. One was an in dependent Democratic leader and the other had been, until recently, active in the Republican party; but both were convinced that the fusion ticket was sure of success. Those who croak do not realize that the people are coming to feel the need of good government. The tide has been strongiy in that direction ever since Hewitt ciiine out as an independent candidate tn IS9O. Before that, opposition to Tammany rva.s only sporadic. In 1597 Croker declared that the reformers never win two elections in succession, but out of tha last three contests they have won two. and the time Is coining when they will win tww running." FOR PRIVATE PROFIT In conclusion. Mr. Cutting said. "We hav<» rai.se.l the standard of municipal auministratton so hish that It can never be lowered to the point at which vTT"found it. but it must be remembered that should Tammany return to power every effort will be made to turn the offices and revenues of the city to uses of private pront. Tammany is not a political or ganization, and exists simpiy and solely to ejirich a little ciique of men. 2*o one ever heard a Tani many leader express an intelligent view on ques tions of national policy. Peopie do r.ot quoit- .-. ard Croker's words on matters pertaining to the welfare of the state. He is not a politician; he is a plunderer. And Tammany is not a political or ganization, it is a company of plunderers." Mr. Cutting wa3 followed by Thomas A Fulton, secretary' of the Citizens Union, who expressed himself even more strongly regarding the indiffer ence of the better classes and the Influence of women in rousing them from it. "American politics don't lack brains." he said; "they lack morals, and we want the women to put morality into them It is not the lower East Side that we need to tear, it 13 the upper West Side. When the present President of the United States was Governor of New-York he referred once in a public address to two men who had served their country better than any others that he knew, and those two men, Arthur yon Briesen and Jacob Riis, were of foreign birth." Mr. Fulton advised the women to inform them selves about wnat the city was doing, and sug gested that they begin by a visit to BlackweU's Island, which was accordingly agreed upon. With facts such as they would glean in this visit. Mr. Fulton said, they cculd shut up the "kickers," who were mostly of the browr.stone front class. Of the importance of the work of women Air. Fulton was absolutely convinced. Dr. Lecierle had said they might have to have women on the Health Board. Mr. Fulton would have said, "We have got to have them." "If the women did not elect Mayor Strong i;i toto," said Mrs. Cutting, "he owed at least naif his majority to them. It was a raw, bleak day, and as the men stood In line waiting for a cnance to get to the polls, the women brought them coffee and sandwiches, and kept them tnere until they got their votes out of them." The meeting closed with a few remarks from Mrs. Josephine Shaw Lowell and ilrs. Harriet Uhe Fojc. BY KATHEH.IXE TYJSA.N. into the tree, and in a second -was off his horse and flogging the hounds furiously with his whip. Pres ently the huntsman and whipper in appeared on the scene, looking rather crestfallen and very muddy. Sir Adrian roared his orders. The hunts man called his hounds off. In a few seconds they were trotting away to the kennel, disappointed of their sport, but evidently anticipating their evening meal. Sir Adrian remained below the tree till the din passed somewhat out of hearing- Then he looked up Into the soft golden masses of the boughs. "Now." he said. In a tone of concentrated emo tion, fury, concern, admiration, amazement, a'! struggling together, "you'd better let that thing go; and then be obliging enough to tell me what you did it for. I don't suppose it was motive enough that you were spoiling the run?" "Indeed. I never thought of you." answered a sweet, cold voice out of the tree. "And as for letting 1 the little beast go, why, I just can't. It's quite a young thing, and it has broken its paw. It fell right at my feet, yelping like a pet dog. Do you suppose I was going to leave it to the hounds?" "You knew your danger. I suppose?" "Oh, yes, I knew." replied the voice, airily. "It was a near tiling, too. The first hound almost pulled me back out of the tree. I believe he carried a bit of the braid off my skirt away in his mouth." "Good heavens! If the pack had pulled you down with the scent of the fox about you. they'd have made short work of you " "I shouldn't have liked that sort of death," said the voice. "Of course I knew it in a way. But what would you have done yourself if the fox had come tumbling at your feet like that?" "I ope I'd have had more sense than to do what you did," Sir Adrian replied grimly. "But now are you coming down? Is the Uttie beast's paw really broken? Didn't It scratch and bite at you when you picked It up?" "No more than a pet dog. I have a. theory that it Is some one's pet fox; or it has been tamed by the suffering, like the lion in the story. Here, catch it! I'm coming." A small, sun burned hand and wrist were thrust from the warm drift of leaves. From the fingers. heid by the scruff of the neck, dangled helplessly a little fox. In the same manner Sir Adrian received It and laid It down on the moss. The thing showed no inclination to run away. Its anxious face wore tha expression of a dog in trouble. Sir Adrian mentally inclined to that theory of the fox being a pet. "What are you going to do?" ask the voice, at his side now. Miss O'Driscoll had swung herself down with surprising ease and grace from the tree "Coins: to set the paw." he answered. "I've never done as much for a fox before, but I have more than once for a dog; and. as a preliminary. I'm going to muzzle you, old fellow. A fox's bits Is a very nasty thing. Miss O'Driscoll, as you. fortunately, have not been obliged to realize." He produced his handkerchief, and, ■with sur prisingly littla resistance on the part of the fox. bound up his Jaws. Then he looked about for something 1 of which to make his splints, found what he wanted, and performed the little operation skilfully and tenderly. When he had finished. "Now, what are we going to do with him?" he asked. "Ballinacarra is nearer than Erris. Supposing — I think I could get a don key cart close by— l take him there 0 " The girl had been leaning- over him so intent on what he was doins: that her breath was on his cheek: he could see where the upward sweeping eyelashes caught the light on their gold; the down on the young roses of her cheeks was like a baby's. "That will be best," she said. "When he gets well" "It must be for you to decide. Perhaps you had better make a pet of him to keep him from being hunted again." "I think we shall give him his choice," she said softly. "You know. I think It was splendid of ycu," he went on. "Perfect lunacy, of course, but splendid all the same." She reddened at his praise. "I think you are very kind." she said simply. "I don't know any one else who would have been so good to the fox. and so clever." "And you forgive me?" he asked, extending a frank hand. "I want to be friends with O'Driscoll and his granddaughter." She put her hand into his. "Grandpapa was angry because the deer were to be hunted." she said. "I shall not think of It again." he answered eagerly. She flung back her mane, and her bright eye* looked at him. at once, shy and fearless. "There are other things." she said, "things of no importance. It was my fault. I did mv best to make my grandfather hate you." "But you don't hate me?" "Not now." Their hands were still clasped above the little fox. which lay licking uneasily at the splintered lesr. between them. "Not now." she repeated, and then her eyes felL Down along the woodland road came a little don key cart, returning from the market, whither it had carried ■ family of little piss. It was easy to arrange for the carriage of the fox to Ballinacarra. When they had seen it started Miss O'Driseoll held out her hand. "Goodby!" she said. "We go the same way." he replied, turning to re capture his horse, which was grazing in a little glade close by. ,1 ■-■■■■ '.

"I shall let you know how our patient pro cresses." he said, as they parted, and it was with a curious thrill of pleasure he said that "our." Th-» gout had set its victim free for the time, and the Prince of Errls was happy. "Its almost worth while to have it for the Joy of getting rid of it.

"I want to tell you." she said, sitting down on his discarded footstool, "we made a mistake about him over there." nodding her head In th.- direction of Ballinacarra chimneys lust visible among the tref . _-the Englishman. We O'Driscolls are too proud not to own when we've made ■ mistake or done an Injustice. He's a gentleman. if. he is rich, and he's kind, and he has no intention of hunting the deer which are your property he says, and it isn't his fault that he bought Bailinacarra. and he desires very much the privilege of knowing you. grandpapa." _ "Why, child, what do you mean? Wasn't it your self that stuffed my head with stories against him. and set me on to make it Impossible for him to keep the hounds?" And then Kathaleen told him th» story of th» fox and of Sir Adrian's conversation, which had shown ouite the proper feeling toward the O'Drls colls who had been a power in the land before ever an Ingestr« had followed a Norman robber into England, and much more to the same purport. Be sure Sir Adrian's remarks lost nothing in Miss Kathaleen's repetition of them.

And th* fox. having made his cfcoiee, became the per manent Inmate of a comfortable house at Ballina carra.

Crimmim Urges Plan for Increased Roadway. John r>. 'Crimmlns.. it was said yesterday, will soon urge the Board of Estimate and Appor tionment to take up a plan of widening Fifth ave. by setting the fence line in on either side toward the fronts of the houses, and thus secur ing greater width for both the wagonway and sidewalks. Irs a statement made by Mr. Crim mins yesterday he said: Suggestions have been made that wheel traffic in Fifth-aye. should be restricted so that during certain hour drays ar.d heavily lad?n vehicles would be prohlbi:e.:. All the avenues were opened as public thoroughfares at the expense of the public. There is no power in existing laws that would permit such a prohibition. Fif:h-ave. has taken on a commercial wide. Pri vate residences, b^iow Forty-sixth-st., will all dis appear in a few years. Flfth-ave real estate values to-day are measured by the advantages the avenue offers for that character of business th*.' we observe being rapidly established. Tni» busi ness is aided by advertisements. Tiere wfi: be an increase in rentals asd tha value, of property proportionate to the increase of the travelling pub lic through th* avenue. An Increase in spaco for trafflo in general is what we have in mind. The sidewalks and carriageway, as laid out. have not the capacity for present demands at certain hoars of the day. As population increase and the ave nue becomes more attractive trade Increases. a rearrangement of the carriageway and aide walks is suggested. The pan is to w.den the car riageway from 40 to 51 feet, an Increase of 40 per cent, which really means more than 40 per cent la the facility afforded for the movement of raffle. The present width ices no: permit of more than four vehicles atjrea3t, two passing north and two south. The increased width will permit of six abreast, travelling in safety. The present width, confines the traffic to a procession of wo line* on. each Bide during the crowded hours Slowly mov ing vehicles establish the pace. With. increased width of roadway a: time* a carriage can pas» out ahead and turn in any open space aad mow more rap:d y. The sidewalks should be free from all encroach ments and encumbrances between the curb ana the house line. The condition of --he »idewaik» is not uniform. Although they were originally laid, out at 30 feet, in many instances 15 feet oa.vo been inclosed. leaving but 15 feet for pedestrians. There are serious inclosures, such, as extended stoops, wells below the level of the sidewalk, gar dens and lnc!osures in the pnblle street, where re freshments are served. The entire street belongs to the public: these incumbrancee deprive the publia of their use. The suggestion Is that the side walks, instead of being limited to IS feet, should be> in all cases of a ■"»"«"■»— width of 23 feet, addln# about 50 per cent to the space for pedestrians. It Is in the minds of many that not so long ago there were stoop* to the house* on Broadway: they have been removed. There were stoop* to> the houses and Inclosures in Third-aye. up> to the time of the erection of the elevated railroad: they have all been removed. The abuse from encroach ments tn Flfth-ave ha* been greater than In. any other avenue. The creations that are made> permissible during the pleasure cf the Board of Aldermen have become too genera;, so that peo ple finding encroachments by their neighbors as sume they have a license to create encroachment*, and the license has become an abuse.
