It Is an ofSce which is the Scotch • ea s^ vaJcl!t of that at Lord Chief Justine o f ESjg jmd, and bears the title of Lord Justice General sad Lord President of the Whole Court of Session «f Scotland. It usually carries with it a peerage, as in th« present instance. King Edward having (jresdy notified Andrew Graham Hurray of his in t er_tion of raising him to a seat In the House of Lords. jm&revr Graham Murray is married to a slsier of jus. George Keppel and is a son of the late Tboßi* 8 Graham Murray, who was senior partner cf the great Edinburgh firm of lawyers known aa fois Hurray & Jamieson. The family halls from ■trtbshire. and tbe new poor was educated at Har _*• ano Cambridge, was the champion racquet rfayer at Harrow and playeS in bis college eleven tt the university. He has been engaged in almost tvery ea*» of importance In the Scotch courts in th» la« twenty yeare, has sat in Parliament, rtsxflg perticularly high in the favor both of the vjrr and of the Prince of Wale* and has a beauti ♦ul'p!*** hi rwthßhine known as Stonton. near Punkeid on the most picturesque portion of the Tav and neaxir opposite Murthly Castle. His eld et son. th« one ovrr here last summer, is married u/th« har-dscme daughter of Sir David Balrd of Netrbyth. KILJ^AnXET'S NETW LORD. _. new ir i of Kenmare. having married the -Z-Zeu*-^-'"' Baring, is brother-in-law of the Sen. Bupo Baring, representative in this country c*t£t> famous -iish banking; house that bears "Si na»e and who xnakes his home in - Tork - Aaoth^r brother of the new Countess of Kenmare is parried to the daughter of the late Pierre Loril j-rd.* who. after tte dissolution of her marriage Tm, T Botteax Tailer. of New- York, became the wife cf C ecfl Barirg. next h»ir to the earldom of t«s brother. Lord P.eveistoke. l*&y Kenmare la tall and graceful, perhaps more pkaeant iook:ng than beautiful. Sb« cares more for the country than for London, and has until sow made rer home at Killarney Hounv in Ireland. Hergre* interest in life seems to be the further cace ot Irish ind«s-;i»4. and she haa established a fiodtai fcowv in Kerrir. wbl-va Is very success " Jal ana where beautiful and artistio articles are oesigseil and executed. Her husband. Lord Ken jnare. has lintil now filled the office of Master of tk« Hbrs» to th« Vioßtoy of Ireland and distin piisted h ; mself at the time of the collapse of the jjogm of Baring, some ten or fifteen years ago, by condcg forward voluntarily and surrendering to the Egradstors the entire amount of his wife's large 'dowry, an artion all the more creditable in view of th« fact that he was not a rich man. As every one kmws, the liquidation, though It took a num ber of fears, eventually resulted in th© payment in fail sC afl the obligations of the firm by means of the assetf, so that Lord and Lady Kenmare ulti •matfcly received their money back, which does not. however, jr. any way diminish "the- merit of the 6&criflce which they had offered to make for the sak«- of the nair.e of Baring. Klllamey House is a singularly beautiful place of relatively modern construction, looking on to the CKtruisile lake of Killarney. and being the repro 4oedoc in red brick of an old Elizabethan man tton. Its feaiu.*e perhaps is the private chapel of the lst« Lord Kenmare's wife, a convert to the Eoman Catholic Church. She had determined that this ape! should be perfect of its kind. and. being of exQuiEite proportion*. with an altar of trans r-erent onyx, the walls inlaid with Italian paint ing*. Its silver ca-adifftlcks morusted with coral, and Its rare eld vestments, it Is certainly a gem of ecclesiastical art. Another feature of the house is the beauty of the door handles, the majority of which are formed of richly chased and wonderful.'y ' enamelled watch cases, while the. great dining room fe tapestried with old Spanish embossed leather, lr. lact,* tt« late Lord Kenmare seriously crippled' td» rwurot* In building Killarney House. Although the Jatter is modern, yet the gardens are old, th* grand yew hed^e surrounding the old bowling gr**n being the finest la Ireland or Great Britain, and having been often vaunted by poets. Indeed, the lands hey« been in the possession of the Browne family, of which Lord Kenmare Is the head, since the days of Queen Elizabeth. Under her ssflMr, Henry VITI, th« Brownes had their seat at Totteridge. in Hertfordshire, and at Croft, in Lincolnshire. But in 1353 Queen Elizabeth appolnt ed Sir Valentine Browne surveyor of escheated lands I Ireland. Five years later he purchased from Donald, Earl of G'encare, lands and manors, in the Bortnitw of Kerry and of Cork, and obtained from Quf-en Elizabeth, who was very fond of him. a fTHni of all the estates of Lord Glencare, on the latter dying without Issue.* For a time all these great landed possessions of the Brownes were confiscated, owing to their loyalty to King James II and to the Stuart, that is to say, the Jacobite cause, and it was not until the end of the elgh teenth century that the peerages which they now hold, namely the earldom and the barony of Kea- Jnare and the viscounty of Castlerosse. were con fir-n*>d to them by King George 111. The late Lord Kenmare was a very handsome ar.d stately man. who, as Lord Chamberlain, as dFted in the presentation of many American wom en to th* lav» Queen Victoria, and of many American men to King Edward when Prince of "•Val^s, at the St. James's Palace levees. His son and heir has inherited his good looks, though, ac cording to all accounts, these have been somewhat impaired by a bad accident with which he met vfcile out hunting the other day. when he was not only thrown, but was kicked in the face. ST. JAMES'S TRANSFORMED. Apropos of the levees at St. James's Palace, Americans Wte attend them this year will have difficulty in recognizing that at one time royal •bod*: at any rat^ as far as the interior Is con ceraed. a:i its sombre characier has disappeared. Tbe grand etaircase is now brilliant In white and Sold, which has also been adopted as the pre dominar.: note in the redecorat tons of the state •P&nm^r.ts. The best pictures have been retained, but many of the indifferent ones have been re •noved, their place being- taken by paintings of •*» actual interest, the place of honor being ac *>isd to the picture representing the opening of t»e first Commonwealth Parliament in Australia *& the Prince of Wales.

STRIPES FOR HIS TROUSERS. ■ Every now-ar.d again n«we comes from St. Peters burg to the effect that tbs power and influence of M.' Pobiedonostsaff, th 6 procurator of the Holy Synod and the high priest of reaction, intolerance and autocracy, are on th© wane. However. In the "Oflicial M«aw:nger," or "Imperial Gazette." Just to hand from St. Petersburg, there appears, side by side with the Czar's ukaso proclaiming martial law in St. Petersburg pending the restoration of order, a solemn decrd* "granting to the procurator of the Holy Synod his request that he should be permitted to wear stripes on his parade trousers," and in future "rank with £he second highest class of offi cials in the empire." enjoying rights identical with those of Ministers. This grant of stripes to the old man's trousers Is on a line with the grant of a peacock's feather to a Chine.se mandarin, and can only be construed as a mark of continued favor and good will on the part of the Autocrat of All the Russias. V-:'v-' MARQUISE DE FONTENOY. D X E MEN HAVE DINNER. Xew-York Association Meets at the W 'aldorf— Prominent Men Guests. The Delta Kappa Epstlon Association of New- York gave last evening Its annual dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria, Whitelaw Reid, president of the association, being the principal guest. The other guests, also members of the associa tion, included Judge Holt, of the United States District Court, Yale. "66; Judge Thonias, of the United States Circuit Court, Yale, '70. and these justices of the Supreme Court: John Proctor Clarke. Yale. '78; Justice Vernon M. Davlß, City College, '76; Joseph A. Burr, Yale. '71. and. Al met F. Jenks, Yale, '75. At the guests' table with ex- Judge Henry E. Howland. Yale. '70, who presided, were the guests of honor and speakers, the latter being Mr. Reid, who was graduated from Miami Uni versity in 1856; Judge Davis, JameE Russall Soley, Harvard, '70; Hugh R. Garden and Ros well B. Burchard, City College. *80. It was hoped that President' Roosevelt, who joined the fraternity at Harvard, would be able to be present for a few moments. He did not appear, however. The Astor Gal lery, where the dinner was served, was decorated In blue, red and gold, th» fraternity colors. In the centre of the guests' table were twelve large silver loving cups, presented to th« New-York Delta Kappa Epsilon by the associations of vari ous States. • ■ Ex-Judge Howlanu was toasunaster. To be In charge of such an aggregation of selected mentalities was awe-inspiring, he declared solemnly— a task to be approached with timidity. Some at the dinner, he went on, were present at the birth of Delta Kappa Bpsllon. He came in a year or two later, but the fraternity had grown to maturity in his manhood. He spoke of the work of colleges, in whose currlculums, to be sure, there must b« changes, yet it spoke well for them that so few were needed. He told of the men who belonged to Delta Kappa Ep- Ellon, Including President Roosevelt and mem bers of his Cabinet, and paid a tribute to Will iam H. Baldwin, Jr., president of the Long Island Railroad, who was a member. Then he introduced Sir. Reid, speaking of his going to the Court of St. James as an honor "aa high &* can come to any American." In reply, Mr. Reid said: Before even thanks for these generous worda and your more than flattering reception, let me try to start straight, or to get this dinner started straiKht- I had something to do at the outset with orgauiz h»g It. There was no talk of its being a compli ment to any alleged official probability. It was for a far worthier object— to celebrate the good old Fraternity Itself, to revive its happy memories, to rejoioe In its triumphs, and especially to magnify this latest development of its graduate activities, the Delta Kappa Epeilon Association of New York! That is wiiat we are here for. I wasn't in it per sonally at all at the start ; if lam now, it can only be as a side Issue, an afterthought of the uncom monly active and masterful gentlemen of the Com mittee! One would have to be. however, a vei-y dull man, or a very conceited one, if his pulses didn't quicken at your greeting, and his heart well over at these evidences of good will. But prolix gratitude is apt to be shallow. Men talk about such things least. I fancy, when they feel most; and all I shall trust myself, at any rate, to aay Is that with all my heart I thank you. There Is besides a certain embarrassment, If not also a prematurity, in saying more. You are coup ling my name with a great office, and basing this demonstration upon the connection. Now, I aru not in office, have not even been nominated for office— far less confirmed by the Senate; and as a matter of fact there is yet no vacancy. Of course, I might be quite capable of imitating a well known Scriptural character, and. at the first whisper of my name, shout out. loud and clear, "Here am I!" But even that Scriptural example waited till he was called! ■ If, in advance of that, one rray properly say any thing, what is uppermost in my mind to-nipht Is rather the sobering trmn the exhilarating Fide of the duties it Is said the President purposes to Im pose. They are twofold :•— to do all that may honorably be done to promote and extend cordial relations and perpetual good understanding between two of tbe greatest countries in the world; and at the same time to work vigilantly for the rights and Interests of the one county that for us is above all others, our own. The praises and the laurel wreaths are for him that makes a good finish, rather than for the man who Is Just starting. Years hence I shall have earned the good words of to-night, if I shall then be retiring amid such a chorus of international applause as is at this moment greeting the preseit American Ambassador to Great Britain. Justice Davis, speaking for the D X E Judges in this city, said that they were made In the D X E chapters, wnere they learned tljeir industry and acquired the ideas and ideals of which their motto told. Mr. Soley, represent ing the Harvard chapter, said teat if the chap ter had become extincf its members had not, as might be imagined when it was known that the President, with his Ideas of "the strenuous life," had been a member. Mr. Burchard, of the New-England Association, told of the younger generation in D X E, and Hugh R. Garden, t>f the University of Virginia, "had himself counted" as one of the Southerners. ASKS $100,000 FEOM THEATRE MEN. Canadian Company Sues Eastern Circuit As sociation — Alleges Conspiracy. An action has been b«gun In the United States Circuit Court against the Eastern Circuit Associa tion, composed of the owners of thirty-nine theatres playing burlesque shows throughout the East and Middle West, by the J. B. Sparrow Amusement Company. Limited, a Canadian corporation, whioh demands 000,000 damages for alleged conspiracy. The defendant company includes, among other well known managers George J. Kraus, "Tim" Sullivan. Hurtlg & Seamon and the Miners. The Sparrow company owns the Royal and Fran calse theatres, in Montreal. Up to August 1 last, Jt contends, it was a member of the defendant asso ciation. On and after that date, it alleges, the man agers of the defendant corporation conspired to ruin the plaintiff ana caused all the attractions booked to Play at the plaintiu s houses this season, except two to cancel their engagements. As a result, it is alleged, plaintiff has been compelled to play inferior attractions, and Its theatres nave been dark must of the time. AN DOVER ACADEMY GETS $33,000. Andovw. Ma>s..

Well Knotvri as an. Art Collector— .Was the Mayor's Guardian. William Cowper Prime, a ~ well • known art col lector, who had been a vice-president and a trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for over twenty years, was once Editor of "The Xew-York Journal of Commerce," and for many years was senior pro fessor of the history of art at Princeton University, died on Mcnday at his home. No. SS East 23d-st. , Dr. Prime was -born in Cambridge. N. V., in 1825, aid was graduated from Princeton in 1813. Ad mitted to the bar in 1846, he practised In this city till IS6L Then he beca.ne part owner ■of " "The ' Journal of Commerce," and kept his interest until 1894. Dr. Prime was a collector of ceramics illustrative of ancient : art. and In his different journeys to Europe and by correspondence he made a large col lect ior.'. ThJs collection he presented to Princeton University, and It became the nucleus for the art museum of that institution. To receive it a fire proof building was constructed by the university. His collection of pottery extended beyond ceramics ln illustrating ancient art, for it included Illus trations of modern art as well. He posse3sed valu able productions of the Sevres factory, at Paris. Some pieces are said to have been at oue time used in the furnishing of the Palaca of the Tui leries. He wrote "Pottery and Porcelain of All Times and Nations." When the opening of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Sunday was decided on. Dr. Prime re signed a» vice-president -and as trustee, as he was opposed tc Sunday opening. He was a mem ber of the Groller Club. Princeton In 1875 made him an D. D. Dr. Prime was not only interested in ceramics, but ln the history of illustration by woodcuts, and collected a large quantity of illustrations by wood cuts. There are in his collection wood engravings of many artists, known and unknown, of the hf teenth and sixteenth centuries, illustrative of the art of those periods. In his library are about fifty voiunus of scrapbooks, averaging from four hun dred to five hundred engravings each. Dr. Prime contributed to the • magazines poems and articles on coins, ceramics and wood engrav ings. He wrote stories of boat life in Egypt and Jsubia and tent life in the Holy L,and. He was an enthusiastic fisherman, and the fre quenters of the . Franeonia Mountains in the past will recall him on Profile Lake and Echo Lake. He was the owner of Lonesome Lake, in the White Mountains, where he did much trout fishing. He was accustomed to spend from May till October in the mountains of New-Hampshire, returning to New-York then, and remaining here till the holi days. Then he would go to Florida till the fol lowing April, when he wouM xeturn to New-York. His severe attack of rheumatism two years ago Interfered with hla activities, but not in any re spect were his spirits or hia general health im paired. In the last week of September he- suf fered a stroke of paralysis while at his cabin ln the Franconia Notch, and was brought to his home in New- York. From this be rallied and re ceived his friends at his home. About ten days ago suffered another stroke, but his cheerfulness continued. On Monday he becamo insensible, and died that evening. \ Dr. Prime's wife died over twenty-fly* years ago. She was Mary Hammond TrumbuU, of the old Trumbull family of Connecticut. A surviv. ing sister, Mrs. Maria M. Cummings, of Brooklyn, has reached the age of ninety-six. Throe nephews— two sons of his eldest brother. Dr. Alanson J. Prime, who are Ralph E. Prime and Alanson J. Prime, and one son of his second brother, a well known Presbyterian clergyman, the Rev. Dr. S. Ireneeus Prime, who is the Rev. Wendell Prime, survive him. The funeral will take place this afternoon at * o'clock, at Dr. Prime"s home. No. 38 East 23d-6t, The burial will be at Hartford, Conn., by the side of his wife. Mayor McClellan has cancelled all social engage ments till Monday of next week on account of the death of Mr. Prime. The Mayor is one of tha specially invited guests to the Amen Corner Dinner at the Fifth Avenue Hotel on Saturday night of this week. In referring to Mr. Prime yesterday the Mayor said: "He was my father's literary executor and my guardian. He was like a father to me. When my father ran for President Mr. Prime was his cam paign manager, and for certain things that hap pened in that campaign Mr. Prime was locked up by Secretary Stantonin Fort Lafayette for three months. The old gentleman owned perhaps the finest collection of wood engravings in the world. It is understood- that the collection will go to Princeton University. It strikes me that the house ln .'which Mr. Prime lived and died is the only one in use as a dwelling In the block in 2Sd-st., between Broadway and 4th-ave, Mr. Prime was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. and a lifelong friend of General di Cesnola. His relatives did not Ift him know about the death of General Cesnola, for fear that the shock might hasten his death. He used to ask about the general every day." WHAT IS GOING ON TO-DAY.

MUSIC A Special Philharmonic Concert. The first of tv o special concerts by the Phil harmonic Society took place in Oarnrpie Hall yes terday; the second will be given to-night, less with all the striking Merits of y-st»r.la\ - affair raised to a higher power. Tha: at concerts of this character. In whi h • • | spirit that lives at night drives away wi trifling incubus may have rested upon the after noon affair. Some features of yesterday's meeting it will be difficult even to rlUDlicate. A more thrill ing performance of the choral and orchestral por tions of the. finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony can scarcely he expected, nor is one likely to see and hear such a demonstration of glad en thusiasm as greeted Mr. Weingartner afte* he had conducted what was in every re spect a notable performance of that stupendous work. Our usually staid and decorous Philharmonic audience has had frequent occasions of late to show that it can respond to an appeal to Its emo tions, but it has seldom been whirled into ho boisterously a gladsome mood as yesterday's concert plunged it into. The incident was the more strik ing from the fact that it warmed only to the crowning achievements of the day. the climax of tbe Scherzo and the cu»mlnation of the glories of the finale in the Beethoven work; the meritrtcious beauties — they are scarcely more than prettinesses — of Berlioz's spmphony. "Harold in Italy," did not stir it. and the first movement did not seem to satisfy all the expectations which many fine per formances In the part had created. The Philhar monic Society has made it a pious duty to produce the choral symphony biennially, and has usually accomplished more than creditable things with it, in spite of the difficulties offered by the vocal parts. Yesterday, as on previous occasions, Mr. Chapman was called on to enlist and prepare the choir, and was more than usually successful. There were deplorable weaknesses in the solo quartet, but one of them called for leniency in judgment. Mr. Edward Strong was expected to sing the tenor part. He was ill. and Mr. Edward Barrow took his place. He labored through the all but impossible music with strident voice. His companions (they were Mißs Anna Bussert, Mrs. Carl Aives and Mr. Julian Walker) labored also, and there was little euphony from that quarter of Mr. Weingartner's forces; but the public have oftener felt grateful that disaster has not over whelmed the daring souls who essay Beethoven's music than delighted with their achievement. To take up the details of Mr. Weingartner's reading of the N.inth Symphony would lead into regions which only professional listeners would traverse with pleasure. More plastic, more, ele mentally forcpful and compelling performances of the first movement, which surely marks the cul mination of the creative, power of the greatest of all symphonlsts, have been heard here. There were moments when a sort of academic reserve on the part of the conductor held back the surg ing elements that seemed to beat against the bar riers which his iron will had set; but in nearly every instance when musicians and listeners felt a need of greater elasticity of tempo, a greater propulsive eagerness, or retardation, there came compensation in the inclsiveness of the rhythms and the clarity with which inner voices came to the fore. So that. after all. few of the great climaxes were missed. The Scherzo was taken at bewildering speed, which was hardly relaxed an lota in the trio; but the same mad humor possessed every player In the band, and none were carried off their feet in the whirl. After this movement Mr. Weingartner called all his sing ers to the stag*. Then disaster seemed surely impending, for the platform was inadequate in size, and the two hundred men and women were crowd ed against the wall at both sides and rear. It did not seem likely that they would keep together separated by so vast a space. But there was in spiration in -every movement of Mr. Wein gartner's arms and head; his glance transfixed every individual, and when he called upon the singers to strike, they struck like a thun derbolt. The conductor used no book; ho had the entire score in his hesd. and therefore (as an old German pun has it) did not have to have his head in the score. His colossal energy went out In every direction and transfigured his performers, singers and instrumentalists alike. Nothing that he has yet done was comparable with the mastery of his art disclosed in the last movement. No academic reserve here, yet as flrm a hold on the technique whinh is necessary to Insure unanimity of action as an emancipation of his own soul that it might bear the souls of all along with it in its flight. By bringing the singers upon the platform before the Adagio Mr. Weingartner did the best that could be done under the circumstances to conserve the large poetical purpose which is at the bottom of the symphony. That purpose has generally been overlooked hitherto in American performances. Even at great festivals in which the choir occu pied the stage from the beginning it has been customary to make a pause after the slow move ment so that the solo singers might enter. In spite of critical protest conductors have persisted in dis rupting- the <-ontinuity of the composer's plan and ig!\i)rinK his wishes. That dissonant shriek of the or chestra which moves the basses to attempt articu late speech must follow immediately upon the last chord of the slow movement. In which the soul of the tone-poet has soared as near heaven as it is possible for artist's soul to reach. Only thus is made plain what follows— the recapitulation of themes which tell of heroic but despairing struggle. of search for happiness In the frenetic whirl of pleasure, of hope and longing In serene contempla tion of celestial things, the dismissal of all as in efficient, and the invocation of a new song and the employment of words and voices. Mr. Weingart ner's device was only a compromise, but still some thing to be profoundly grateful for. There is a recapitulation of themes al9o in the finale of the Berlioz symphony, which might as easily have been forgotten by the re\Je-wer of yejj 'terday's concert as it was after Beethoven had ended his proclamation. What a shallow device in Berlioz, how eloquent in his great exemplar: "Harold in Italy" was beautifully- played yester day, and for the second time this season Mr. Kovarik (who played the solo viola) showed us how fine an artist he is; but It is doubtful if there will be a speedy call for a repetition from the patrons of the Philharmonic Society. The first, and also the last, time previous to yesterday that it was given a place on a Phil harmonic programme was in November. ISBO, when the late .Theodore Thomas produced It. Since then it has been performed under Mr. Walter Damrosch. Mr. Nikisch and Mr. Paur Max Schwarz, Nahaa Franko, Franz Kneleel and Ottokar Novacek have played the solo: but the symphony Is still rated lower than its companions, the Fantastic and Dramatic, Like the former. it is programme music of the kind that answers patly to the label, and is therefore a blessing to the pro gramme annotator and tb* simpl" soul? who like to sentimentalize on music These <iear ones have easy sailing in "Harold in Italy." With the aid of the label they knaw that the slow intro duction speaks of melancholy: the following rapid movement of Joy and happiness; that the "Turkish patrol" effect of the march pictures the passing of pilgrims chanting a -pious canticle: the pretty tune on the English horn, which interrupts the music of the pinTerari with Its drone, is a serenade sung under a window In the Abruzzi; that the clatter and crash and rush and roar of the orchestra at the last depict the orgie of a band of Italian banditti: finally, that the solo viola, that maunders and echoes and wails, is Childe Harol wandering, dreamy and meditative, among the scenes thus* depicted. All this Is possible, j because tbe . composer j has told us ro. and because all the devices are . child ishly ingenuous, and all the effects that need be considered wholly external. But ought not a sincere lover of the beautiful, whose ears have heard the melody of Byron's lofty lines, and whose heart has warmed toward the poet's sublime Pil grim, resent ev«ry degradation of the poetical ideal? And what else Is the tltl* of the symphony but such a degradation? The Italy of Berlioz la the Italy of the cheap romancer, not the Italy of Byron's Childe Harold. The fourth . canto of the IR.t-rn. from its f.imi'.iar opening lines to the mag nlflc»'nt apostropiir to the ocean, publishes only the loftiest contemplation, as it reviews the past of political and Intellectual Italy. It has naught of chanting pilgrims, droning lovers or revelling bandits. - AMBASSADOR MEYER KING'S GUEST. Home.

The people of Stratford-on-Avor. have long been desirous that Henry Irving should act at the Shakespeare Memorial Tneatre. H ln that borough, and the Rreat actor himself has long been desirous of an opportunity to comply with their wish. Tnis opportunity has at last come. Henry Irving will be in the Black Country next week, not far from Stratford, and he has arranged to visit that place. and open the series of memorial performances, on Monday. April M Bi will act Shylock. Mr. T. Edgar Pemberton. of Broadway. Worcestershire, the well known dramatis.', rritlc. and dramatic biographer, writes of this prospective event, as follows: "Mr. Benson, who himself would have opened the performances, gladly yields to his old chief, of the Lyceum.— for it was under the banner of Sir Henry Irving that he entered on his distinguished career. "We venture to think that when the latter-day his tory of the stage is written. Sir Henry Irving's Shylock will be looked upon as his Shakespearian masterpiece. In that matchless impersonation there is a dignity and a pattios that have never been ex celled, and now that England's greatest actor has definitely announced his speedy retirement from the stage, all will flock to see it. That will indeed be a red-letter day in the annals of the Stratford stage. Pull details are not yet to hand. Sir Henry Irving majr be* sure of the most cordibl welcome not only of Stratfordlans, but of those visitors who. from far and near, will throng the town for the coming fes tival. Of all the long and notable series of these celebrations this one promises to be the most memorable." Married.
