•Jon was the doll's house. It was virtually a
one-part play. The doll was the .tar performer
ana bad aa many curtains as there were acts.
The question for the box office now ts: will
the intelligent public leap to it? The doll hat
l<en well advertised. Will It have the sus
tained power of attracting audiences when
everybody know, that It is stuffed with saw.
On* . There ou*ht to be serious doubts on this
subject tn the mtada of author and managers.
There were many of Mr. Pinero's sincerest ad
mirers In the first night audience, who consid
ered it an affront to their Intelligence to be
asked to watch the antics of a wretched little
puppet. They looked on without a smile, con
demned the play as disagreeable, cynical and
dull, and deplored the degradation of a great
dramatist's art. There were many who laughed,
but it was in a coarse way. it was not genuine
merriment, but laughter with a jarring, sinister
note, which seemed to reveal what was base In
human nature. The memory of that laughter
spoiled what pleasure there was in listening to
the polished epigrams and in watching the
neatness of drarraiic construction. The doll cer
tainly was unique, but It was In the right place
in the unopened box of toys where Its comedy
was completely concealed. It ought never to
have been fastened to the calling in plain sight
of an audience which certainly was *r dull In
understands an embittered author'B aatire as
it would have b*en in appreciating the earnest
drams of a problem play. The playwright who
begins by despising and mocking his audience
inevitably ends by debasing his art and traf
ficking in what is mott Ignoble in human nature.

PAItKER'S IGNORANCE VS. THE FACTS.
See Monday's New-York Tribune.
FOE LELAND STANFORD TTKTVEBSr
Mrs. Stanford Tells of New Buildings-—
Minister Here.
Mrs. Iceland Stanford, of California, is staying at
the Waldorf. Speaking last evening of Stanford
University, to the interest of which the last dozen
years of her life have been devoted, she said:
Our new gymnasium, which will afford facilities
for five hundred students at one time will be ready
for occupancy the first of the year, and the founda
tion of the new library has been completed. The
cornerstone will be laid upon my return to Cali
fornia. December 1. The library will have a ca
pacity in its stockroom for i.OXi.OOO volume*. The
number of etuuents now in attendance comprises
abour eleven hundred boys and five hundred girls.
The question of coeducation is stiM one of grave
consideration and comn ands the earnest study of
results in other institutions, as well as the deduc
tions from experience in the university.
'The standard of examinations excluded from
entrance to the institution about two hundred stu
dents at the beginning of the present year, and yet
I bcli.ve in putting the standard upon the highest
pts-=ib!<? plane, are 1 to this end the attendance will
be restricted for tee next five years to a number
within 2.000 students. It win then be increased to
2.500. It is my belief that rather than multiply the
umber of student* we should aim to give the very
best that la possible in instruction and training. I
would have the bast professors that the United
S-tates can afJord or that can be found in Europe
occupying chairs in Stanford University, and give
to the departments of law. medicine, philosophy,
electrical engineering and chemistry a place second
to none in the land. I have no pride in the fact
that graduates of Stanford have considered it de
eirab'.e to come to Columbia or go to Harvard. I
would have Stanford raise Its standard until It
stood on a par with Columbia or Harvard, or. if
possible, that the medical student of Columbia or
the law student of Harvard would consider that he
might derive some added benefits by coming to the
Institution at Palo Atlo. That the climate of Cali
fornia would be a. welcome change from that of
either New -York or Cambridge Is not to be
doubted.
"! am convinced that ft is not In the numbers of
great buildings that are erected nor In the vast
sums of money that are expended that the great
ness of an educational institution consists, but
rather In the number of useful men and women
that are brought through Mm instrumentality to
entertain high moral and spiritual Ideals."
On* of the matters which will attract the atten
tion of Mrs. Stanford in her stay in the city will
be the choice of a minister In chief for Stanford
University.
"I believe." said Mrs. Stanford, "that professors
as well as students reed the counsel of a preacher.
Of course, the man we require must be a mar. who
is not wedded to a denominational creed, but ts In
spired by the bread r jr i r i c 'P les of Christianity. I
have two men under consideration, to one of which
a ciJ! will doubUacs be extended after I have con-
Errsd wiih others, »lio krow b* th the men ar.d
who ar* Interested with ms In the welfare of the
universU;."'
Speaking of the part Ghe has had In the building
of the great institution at Palo A.to, Mrs. Stan
ford said:
I am only a stewarde??. I have or.!y carried out
the plans of Mr. Stanrord. I have originated noth
ing, but Ma wfehas. which he l.no made clear to
tt.*- in minutest detail, are Indeiibiy written on my
toul. -ir.-j I pray Cum 1 may be spared to fully
ex*-cjti! them.

EXONERATES MR. HIGGIX,
"New-York Times" Confesses Error
in Funiaccville Iron Case.
From The New-York Times.
Through a re-exami:iation of the evidence and

founded, and in justice 10 Mr. Kiggirs it takes this
occasion to sa> thai 'lie evidence does noi warrant

and quite compatible with a right view of public

"I wish." said a tired, disffusted man at ths
Grand Central Station the other day. "that women
would at times give up that charming indefinite
ness of theirs. Now. my slater wrote that ahe

The Brooklyn Bridge is receiving its usual au
tumn coat of paint Just now and the half dozen
painters to whom ts allotted the ticklish task of
coating the cable* furnish an ail day show for the
crowds which tramp a/ross the bridge. They move
about on the wires at a, Siszy height like so many
monkeys. Each man has a swinging seat to which
ma paint cans and brush** are attached by strings.
They start in at the top of the big cables and
paint down, moving their tackle with very little
lo*e of time. The seats on the platform about the
brljge tower* are well filled with the curious, who
never Ure wa.u.uing the dangerous work.
Contracted with the iran killing affair on t/ong

observers. The contestants are "Roosevelt" and
"Parker," each In the driver's neat of a miniature

belt beneath the mimic course, and, while a pano
ramic view of nil! and dale, woodland and plan

the variable fortunes of the contestant* incite the
onlookers to ex now their partisan sympathies.
'"Parker's ahead!" in a tone of enthusiasm. dis

tells in a show of eager interest that a Roosevelt
rooter is in the crowd.
"I wonder who will be the biggest squash in
November— Parker or I?' is th<» inscription scari
fied in the rind of a squash th»i gets attention
from hundreds of pedestrians who pass a restau
rant on lower Broadway. Other squashes and
pumpkins— of tremendous size and crown at
Esopus. on the Hudson— bear the handicraft of the
Jackkr.ife artist, who did his work before the ripen
ing season was at hand. The wounds are healed,
but the marks remain as apparent freak- of
nature, though really the product of a former**
fancy, "Isn't it fortunate we don't grow on trees?"
is the legend that adorns a pumpkin that exceeds
two hundred pounds in we ft t "I wits sot r»a

Concerning the reiteration of "positive instruc

"no smoking on the rear platform of closed cars."
it was noted one evening recently that the rear
platform of an Amsterdam-are, ear was entirely
ocupipf. by smokers or those who "like to sm'll
th» Pmoke." The conductor called attention to the
rule but he d d it in such mellow tones that the
servilities of the smokers' brigade were un
ruffled, and as women board* d the ear they were
enveloped in the uar"Otfc *rorra of four cigars and
a cigarette, all in vigorous commission.

The rail heads of the Cape to Cairo road have
now rtaehei the south bank of the Zambesi, and
the material is on the ground for the great rail
way bridge that Is to spar, the river below Victoria
rails. It is notable th£t when th? bridge is
thrown across the ?orgr it wouid oe poss.ble to
accommodate the Park Row Building under the
spnn and leave head room of thirtv-e'cht feet
above it. The drop of waters over the fa.ls is 420
feet. The portion of the Cap- to Cairo line now
built from Alexandria to Khartoum by way of
Cairo traverses about a third of the length of the
continent, ard with that between the Cape and the
Zambesi there remains a gap aqua! to about or;--
th.rd of the whole projected ler.^th yet to be con
structed, It is my belief that seven or eight y.ars
will see It competed. Since the end of tn« Boer
war enterprise has beer retarded by the difficulty
in securing th - labor necessary to do the work in
th« mn*s. but the problem has row been solved
by the importation of Chimes labor. There are
now in the Tra-..->vaal. or or. shipboard bound for
South African ports, thirty thousand Chinese, and
with this iabor the mine owners are developing In
ever increasing measure the inexhaustible rich**
of the country. Of course th»re has b-«-n a reluc
tart acquiescence of the Boers to the advent of the
Chinese, but it should be understood tint i' is
British brain that supplies the element of progress
tv. South Africa. The SteßOSitiOP of the Uoer is to
hold the land, grab the gold and keap the Er.^rsh

BIIHC.
Mme. Bloomfield~Zeitler's Recital.
It is questionable if lime. Bloomfleld-Zelsl-r ever
won a more gratifying triumph titan ah« did yes
terday afternoon, when she gave her first, "and
only.** recital nf pianoforte music In Menda'.ssohn
HalL It Is also questionable whether or not she
and her management ever before succeeded ta of
fending so many or her admirers. The latest of her
announcements fixed th* hour of beginning at Id
o'clock p. m., but there were many announcements
sent out by the management which set down 3
Vclock as the hour. Mendelssohn Hall held a
sur-rb nudtence when the concert began at the
earlier hour. Its lobby held a notable addition
a tew minutes later, but those forming it were
kept waiting, whether they were late because of
their own negligence or the uncertainties of ur
ban travel, until two sonatas by Scarlett: and
one by Beethoven (Op. a. No. 2> had been
played. Obviously, the management bungled, but
the lady. too. was unduly excited. It is good
to preserve order and regularity about these things
The people deceived by the official announcements
held some rights In the circumstances; and these
who were a few minutes late were titled to some
of the decent considers tons wh'ch are inherent in
artistic performance. The world had perforce to
wait nearly a hundred rears between the produc
tion of the sonata of Scarlatti and that of Bee
thoven which Mme. Boomfleld-Zeisler played yes
terday. Th re are artistic consiierat ons as well as
physical. A pause of two* minutes between them
would have helped the appreciation and enjoyment
of all the listeners and benefited the performance
also; for Mme. Bloomfleld-Zeisler'a precipitancy in
tempo and ntrvoujya^s in rhythm were noticeable
to al! her listeners. Yet. on the whole, it is doubt
ful If the lady ever played with so m.irk«f! a display
of her genius as yesterday. She frittered away her
powers on the latter half of her programme, but
she played Chopin's Fantasia In F minor with su
perb Inte'lectual. mechanical and emotional force,
and presented herself again and again as a marvel
lous artist— one with large accomplishment? m the
past and yet competing Immeasurably larger ex
pectations.
"BUFFALO BILL' IS HOME.
Wild West With Him—lrish Stew
Pleases Indians.
Co!ore! William T. Cody, "Buffalo Bill." and hla
Wild West Show returr.«d here yesterday on the
Campania. Colonel Cody started West immediately
with several English frinr.ds. whom he will enter
tain In Cody City.
One of the Interesting features of the voyage
was what one of the cowboys called a "red hot war
dance." given by the Wild West Indiana under the
leadership of Iron Tail.
The ciew of the Campania experienced much
ditnculty in keeping the Indians within the bound*
of the steerage. Now and then a bra\e. cloiiied
in a red tuanKet. would stalk quietly by a group
of saloon passengers, and unintentionally scare
them. A woman passenger remarked that she
wasn't afraid ot the Indians, but that she wished
they would wear boots, instead of moccasins, and
let p-^o^le know they were coming.
A special edition cf the third class bill of fare
was pnnieci fo: the Indians in tn-.ir native tongues.
They took kindiy to "Saiils.sa Tawa," which was
in reality Inih ste-*\
Trie Wild West completed Its farewell tour of
Grtnt Britain, which occupied two v«ars. at Hen
ley on October 21. Some of the staff, workmen ar.d
railroad tri;r:s remain at Stoke-on-Trent, and with
the horses— 3lo— will be transported across the
Channel in March. The orsa:;!zation lb to make
