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
"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

"I once heard a your.g girl J=ay she had had diffl

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

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. The
Rev. George C. Peck, pastor of the First Methodist
Episcopal Church, performed the ceremony. Will

is connected with a New- York bank.
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.

springing up, "what Is the matter?"

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
"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
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

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

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

"You'll find the door shut In your face.
"I shall be no worse for that. v-«=-«
The memory of the eyes under th» golden-brown
tangl* of hair followed Sir Adrian lorn? after their
owner had coldly refused him the dance which
despite Lady Derrymore's warnings, he had Deen
determined enough to ask for. ,'♦,-
He had called at Castle Erris a day or two later,
and found the avenue leading to the dilapidated
mansion In such a state of disrepair so Uttered
by the bor.e-hs and even whole trees of old storms,
that' he was obliged to leave his dogcart a little
wav from the entrance gate and do the rest on foot.
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. He's slttin' with bis foot laid up in
cottonwool foreninst him. clanin" his ould breech
loader, an- if 1 was to mintion your name to him
maybe 'tis the ror>tint!> of It he'd be givin me in
me back. 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

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
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
"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

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
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
"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
"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
"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
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 ■-■■■■ '.
They walked on then, side by side, till he had
seer; her within her own gat».
"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. Kathaleen Mavourneen." he said
to his granddaughter.
"I want to tell you." she said, sitting down on
his discarded footstool, "we made a mistake about

"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.
The next day the Prince of Erris's ancient bath
chair was seen trundling up the avenue of Ballina
carra, and the prince's apologies for not h-ivln*

Adrian Ino-stre to the country which was O'Dris

The little fox's paw mended in time, but before
he- had the choice offered to him of beinir a pet
or having his liberty to be hunted. Miss O"Dri3COll
had promised to change her name to Insreatre. And
th* fox. having made his cfcoiee, became the per
manent Inmate of a comfortable house at Ballina
carra. Only, sad to relate, he sometimes raided a
henroost when he got loose, like any of his wild
brethren. But Lady Ingestres fox was a privileged
beast, and her ladyship's partiality for him was
quite shared by Sir Adrian, to the grief of many
honest dogs*— and White.

John D. 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

said the year had closed over a treasury freed
from the long borne burden of debt, each previous
year having shown a debit balance. More vigorous
efforts to establish comity with sister denomina
tions in order to economize men and money, had
been Instituted. With the Presbyterian Churca
comity is in full operation.
