Mr. Wyndham's Retirement— Lord \
Candor in Office. \
„ . , London, March 8.
Tie retirement of the government's most
artistic window dresser from office Is a proof
that the Irish stock Is too miscellaneous to be
effectively displayed. Mr. George Wyndham is
a genial optimist- who never loses either his cour
age as a politician or his faith that everything
is coming out right. In the darkest hour of the
Boer War. when the country was under a black
cloud of depression, he remained cheerful and
hopeful.* *° d made most plausible and useful
speeches as Under Secretary for "War, showing
that the military system was working well and
that there were more battalions In readiness for
the campaign in South Africa than there had
been at the outset, and that the auxiliary forces
;orn3«s an unbroken line of reserves. His brill
iant services at that period ought to have been
rewarded, as his friends thought, by his promo
tion to the post of Secretary for War when the
Cabinet was reorganized; but he was passed
over because It was considered necessary to let
loose a reformer in Pall MalL Mr. Wyndham
was forced to cross St. James's Park to Bird
Cage Walk and to cool off his martial ardor In
the Irish Office, where for thirty years or more
two stalwart police officers have been patrolling
a. narrow passage night and day as a safeguard
against dynamite operations. He speedily Inter
ested himself In his work, and in due time pro
duced and carried a complex Land Purchase
bill which, he asserted with a revival of his old
time optimism, would reconcile land owners and
tenants and be a genuine measure of peace in
Ireland. Hardly had his costly scheme been en
acted before the sympathetic policy was taken
Tip afresh In vague proposals for the endowment
of a Catholic university and in the appointment
of Sir Antony MacDonnell. a convinced Home
Buler from the India service, as Under Secre
tary; and after a transition period, during which
Nationalists and Ulster Unionists have been
alternately played with. Mr. Wyndham Is again
■acTificei and forced to withdraw from the gov
When so accomplished an artist as Mr. Wynd
fnvn throws up his hands with a gesture of
despair and retires to the background It is evi
dent that there are too many policies and cross
pnrroseß in plain sight. There are, for 'example,
the Land Purchase bill as enacted, the Prime
Minister's strong: plea for a Catholic university
as an act of Justice, the appointment of a Na
tionalist as Permanent Secretary, and a series
of conferences in which a close approach was
made to Home Rule. In contrast with these
practical evidences of sympathetic treatment
and government In accordance with Irish ideas
are the Redistribution bill mentioned in the
King's Epeech and the Prime Minister's letter
warning the country that the policy of Home
Rule only awaits the formation of a Radical
government In order to become a dangerous
menace to the Union. Either series of exhibits
Is complete by Itself, but the window cannot be
dressed bo as to produce an harmonious effect.
The Redistribution bill, by which Nationalists
may loss as many as thirty seats, Is an effective
demonstration of Unionist hostility to Home
Rule; but it Is entirely Inconsistent with the
course of sympathetic treatment adopted since
Mr. Wyndham has been In the Irish Office. Sir
Antony MacDonnell. Lord Dudley and Mr.
"Wyndham in their conferences with National
ists and Lord Dunraven's association went a
long way In the direction of Home Rule and,
while they did not commit themselves to definite
measures, succeeded In offending and frighten
ing- the Ulster Unionists. No rearrangement of
the political models and wares is possible, and
consequently Mr. Wyndham has put up the
shutters and left the shop. Spectators lingering
near the closed window find themselves wonder
ing how It will look when the Liberals are in
office and prepared to expose to view their as
sortment of Home Rule notions.
The true explanation of Mr. "Wyndham's re
tirement after his astonishing success In secur
ing the passage of so large a measure as th«
Land Purchase act is his chivalrous nature.
While ha is naturally conciliatory and fond of
compromises by which weights and balances
are delicately adjusted, he watches the scales
closely and knows when concessions are carried
too far. He knew Instantly when L^>rd Dun
raven had blundered and the Permanent Under
Secretary had been entangled in Home Rule ne
gotiations; and he promptly disclaimed respon
sibility for the conferences. But when the re
sentment both of the Ulster men and of the Na
tionalists had been excited, he was unwilling
to save himself by sacrificing Sir Antony Mac-
Donneli, who was recommended by Lord Lans
dowTie and had been carrying out the general
policy of conciliation favored by the King in
Ireland as well as in South Africa and in diplo
matic relations with France. His own resigna
tion seemed the easiest way out of an awkward
and wellnlgh impossible situation; and cer
tainly it leaves his honor unsullied and his
friendship for his associates in the Ministry and
in Dublin . Castle unclouded with self-interest.
His career In the Irish Office ends with an act
of self-sacrifice. Men who leave public life in
so unselfish a spirit usually return to it with
Increased prestige when there has been leisure
for critical study of motives and for adequate
appreciation of noble traits of character.
The natural application of Lord Rosebery*s
doctrine of Efficiency Is the business man In
Urn office. Mr. Balfour has given the country
a striking object lesson of the practical science
of government In the selection of the new First
Lord of the Admiralty. Lord Cawdor, before
be succeeded to the earldom, was a popular
member of the Commons for eleven years, but
dM not fully redeem the promise of a brilliant
career. He retired from politics, 'became chair
man of the Great "Western Railway and de
voted his energies to great business Interests.
In the course of the last ten years that cor
poration, controlling, with one exception, the
**rgest mileage in the kingdom, has been
brought up to the first rank In efficiency of
railway management, and the improvement has
t**n du e mainly to his vigilant, supervision. He
has also been an Ecclesiastical Commissioner
-in charge of large revenues, an Industrious
member of a county council responsible for
local administration, and an active director of
the Royal Agricultural Society. In the best
«*nse of the term he has been a working peer,
with talents of the highest order for organiza
tion and direction of great and complex enter
prise* and with a sense of public duty which
forced him to undertake a good deal of drudg
ery and routine work In local administration.
Little has been said about Lord Caudor in the
newspaper* since his withdrawal from politics;
tiLri young peers, who have*" gambled away their
fortunes and been drawn into bankruptcy or
divorce courts, have been more conspicuous;
bat he has teen working silently and continu
ously and has exerted great influence wherever
h» has been actively employed. This is the new
Wrrt Lord of the Admiralty, a business man
ot unrivalled sagacity and capacity, with habits
and training •which ought to be of practical
utility when he is directing the operations of a
great epending department of the government
and promoting: the efficiency of the first and
dost Important line of national and Imperial
Mm V.v" A ;
Mr. Winston Churchill, who has been seriously
wnbarrafislng the government to-day, by his
action that no preferential system involving
Protective taxation of food or raw material* Is
4««ir*i>l,6, can afford to welcoius attacks from
overzealous enemies, but he ought to pray for
deliveranc* from flatterers among his friends.
He is. perhaps, the moat brilliant "youngster"
in the Commons and has forced himself by au
dacity and talents into a position of real if
unofficial and unrecognized leadership on the
Opposition «ld«; but be ought to be on his
guard against the vagaries of partisans who
are constantly heralding him as a man of un
precedented genius for politics— "inevitably a
Prime Minister of the future." His flatterers
make him an object of ridicule, whereas hla
enemies help to advertise his crowing power and
influence and are his most useful allies. Mr.
Wanklyn. who takes the byplay of politica
gravely and without the saving grace of humor,
has been portraying Mr. Churchill as an arch
conspirator, intriguing against two Ministries^ —
the Unionist government In power and the
Radical government destined to aucceed It — and
soliciting support for an organized movement
for turning out all the old men and putting
promising young men in their piacee. Not only
did Mr. "Wanklyn decline to condone bo mon
strous a political felony, but he also engaged,
according to his own account, in a prolonged
struggle with Mr. Churchill for the deliverance
of Lord Hugh Cecil, an aatute leader of a group
of Independent Free Traders, from a nefarioun
plot against the peace of both parties. If Mr.
Wanklyn had only stopped to reflect on the ten
dencies of human nature he might have con
vinced himself that young men are always in
hot haste to get rid of the veterans— whether in
politics, art, science, literature or business. In
English public life there have been in the course
of a century only two old men in a hurry — Mr.
Gladstone and Mr. Chamberlain— and their Im
patience has been due to intense interest in the
policies advocated by them and to their con
cern lest the sands should run out of the glass
before they could finish their work. Yet decade
after decade, now and always, the "youngsters"
have been elbowing their way forward and
striving to thrust aside the rusty veterans, who
have been prominent too long and need to be
reminded that the art of growing old gracefully
lies In stepping down and out when there are
better men behind them. Mr. Churchill, having
a good deal of human nature in him as well as
being Lord Randolph Churchill's son, has not
lacked this spirit of impatience. He has been.
Indeed, in hot haste to get ahead over the bodiea
of leaders and hacks in both parties ; but there is
nothing surprising in his ambition and zeal,
and certainly nothing in these platform dis
closures will injure him. Mr. Churchill treats
the charges with good natured contempt and
thereby shows proper appreciation of the uses
of political defamation by an indiscreet enemy.
What he needs to do is to be equally sagacious
in suppressing the outbreaks of some of his
foolish friends.
Mr. Balfour has taken the trouble to go to
Cambridge to voto against compulsory Greek,
and he has found himself in the minority of
two-fifths on that controversial question, with
the clergy and conservative men of letters in th«
majority of three-fifths. He was influenced in
casting his vote by his experience as a member
of a government which has been striving to re
organize the secondary schools under the Edu
cation act and to bring them into line with the
two great universities. AVhile Latin has been
retained If. the majority of the secondary
schools, Greek has fallen out in many of them,
and would not be retained If there were not a
requirement that candidates for degrees at Ox
ford and Cambridge must have at least tha
minimum of it— what can be crammed in the
course of six months' study for the "little go"
examination. The Greeks, however, have again
won the battle at Cambridge, as they have re
cently done at Oxford, and so decisively that
the matter is not likely to be revived for another
decade. Greek will be retained in the regula
tions for pass examinations at both universities
until there is something like co-operation be
tween the two centres of learning in a sys
tematic effort to adapt entrance examinations to
specific courses of study and degrees. The Ger
man and American universities already do this,
and in the course of time Oxford and Cambridge
will Join hands, unless all signs fall, in establish
ing in science and other branches of learning
and professional labor degrees which will be
equal in dignity to those in arts. When this la
done examinations will naturally be adjusted to
the degrees, and compulsory Greek will be
dropped without any fears on tho part of coun
try parsons that the bottom has fallen out of
literary- and humanistic studies. A reorganiza
tion of the faculties at the universities so that
•.here may be more flexibility in the courses for
degrees is more important than the regulation of
pabs examinations and the conversion of Greek
into any optional preparatory study. This must
be the ultimate result when the modern spirit
requires specialization of studies before uni
versities are entered, and when the world moves
even at Oxford and Cambridge. I. N. F.

The Rev. Dr. Elmer Hewitt Capen. president of
Tufts College for thirty years, was born at Stough
ton. Mass.. April 5, 1828. His preparation for col
lege was secured at the Green Mountain Liberal
Institute, South Woodstock. Vt.. which, waa under
the control of Professor John S. Lee. In 1866 he
entered Tufts College, at Medford. Mass.. an edu
cational institution under Univergalist control,
which had been incorporated four years before.
■While an undergraduate, in 1869, he was elected a
member of the Massachusetts Legislature. He had
only just attained his majority and was the most
youthful member of the body. He was graduated
from college in 1860, and at once entered on the
study of law at the Harvard Law School and In
the office of Thomas S. Harlow, in Boston. He
was admitted to the Suffolk County bar in 1864 and
practised for a short period in his native town.
But his inclinations turned him toward the work of
the ministry, and he studied for it with his pastor,
the Rev. A. St. John Chambre. In October, UK, he
was ordained and installed pastor of the Indepen
dent Christian (Universalist) Church in Gloucester.
Mass. On account of his wife's health he went to
St. Paul, Minn., in ISCK, and became pastor of the
Universalist society there. After refusing the presi
dency of Lombard University, Galesburg-, 111., ha
returned East in 1870 to become pastor of the First
Universallst Church, In Providence. Under his
pastorate which lasted until he became president
of Tufts College in 187 S. a fine new church edince
was erected and a strong society developed. Dr.
Capen received the degree of D. D. from St.
Lawrence University in 1573 and the degree of
LL D. from Buchtel College in 1889. He was a
delegate to the Republican National Convention

Russian Drama.
It Is only a little more than a year ago since Mr.
Mansfield adopted Into his repertory the ohoracter
of the Russian despot. Ivan the Terrible, Kls first
performance of that part In this city waa given at
the New Amsterdam. Theatre on March 1. 1904. and
since then he has acted It many times and In many
places. Last night he again presented It h«re. and
again his potent and splendid impersonation of the
savage, ruthless, leonine, self-tormenting- tyrant.—
brilliantly manifesting depth of thought, fire of
genius, and felicity of dramatic art,— deeply thrilled
and Impressed a great assemblage. The character
of Ivan Is, in one respect, kindred with that of
Richard lll— for it is an emblem of the fierce and
dreadful struggle forever going on In thlß world
and In the human soul between the elemental forces
of good and evil: a struggle in which sinful passion
Is always, at last, defeated by eternal law. The
life of every great conqueror that looms upon the
page of history tells this same old story. The life
of Ivan was vitally significant of It. The play shows
him In the closing days of his wicked life, ravaged
with evil passions, haunted with baleful memories of
guilt, tormented with remorse. Inwardly affrighted
with superstitious dread, yet ferocious and In
exorable with defiant vitality and malign purpose—
a grim and ghastly, yet imperial, embodiment of
colossal egotism and Infernal wilL Like all his
toric plays (for the historic play can only illumine
salient epochs chosen out of long reaches of time),
this one Is episodical and pictorial rather than
fluently active. The terrible Emperor, who prizes
power above all other earthly things, has incurred
the enmity of a wily, astute, specious, formidable
statesman, who purposes to accomplish his ruin,
and the substance of the play is the opposition of
these two malignant spirits, — Ivan, self-poised,
cruel, vindictive, deadly, forever vigilant against
treason and merciless In Its punishment, and Boris
Godunoff, calm, cold. Inscrutable, who can murder
with a smile. The piece would be more sympathetic
(that Is to say, more pleasantly appreciable as a
work of constructive literary art), If Its story wera
more coherently and continuously told, and If its
movement were more rapid; but it Is a potent
tragedy, and, by Its exposition of representative
self-conflict, in a great nature and upon a great
scene. It causes ths legitimate effect of tragedy,
because it thrills the mind with terror, touches the
heart with pity, and thus ennobles tho spiritual
condition of every auditor who can think and feeL
ilr. Mansfield's performance of Ivan, framed In
a setting of barbaric splendor, reaches a noble
altitude of pow«r and is fraught with overwhelming
pathos. The part Implicates many moods and
admits of many changes, all of which are assumed
with spontaneous ease and made with keen dra
matic effect, whether In the stately aspect of Im
perial dominion, the stealthy stillness of furtive
suspicion and sinister design, the abject condition
of pious humility, or the flery tumult of Impetuous
self-assertion. The repose of the character U that
of settled misery; but this resembles the thun
der cloud, black and still, through whloh, at fitful
Intervals, the imprisoned tempest breaks, In darts
of fire. The fierce spirit is never at rest. Corrosive
disquietude, speaking without worOs. lives and
burns in the wasted frame, the pallid face, the
hollow voice, — conveying a terrible sense of the
reality of pain, and of a ravaged, enfeebled, break-
Ing body, reanimated by an Indomitable, infernal
will. The highest single note of tragic expression
that Mr. Mansflold has ever struck occurs. In the
Tent ecena, In "Richard ITI," in his magnificent
treatment of the speech about conscience, with its
climax of hysterical frenzy; but he reaches nearly
to the same height of power, and he accomplishes
a more difficult thing, when, in the long portrayal
of Ivan's fluctuations of torture and anguish, he
lays toare, by sustained, minute exposition, the re
morseful self-conflict of a human soul. In one situ
ation, at once humorous with paradox and grim with
unreason,— when the Indomitable Czar, on hearing or
a defeat of his army, commands the performance of
choral rites to celebrate a victory,— his acting pos
sesses not only irresistible pathos, but authentic
grandeur. Here the essential ideal in bodly indi
cated,—the Ideal of a ruler who believes himself
to be the vice-regent of Deity, Intrinsically sover
eign, invincible and supreme. It is in the death
scene, however, that Mr. Mansfield's acting- pro
duces th© most startling effect. Much that has b«on
shown of Ivan's life is but the slow preparation
for the awful picture of his death. Magicians have
prophesied thnt the Czar will die on St. Cyril's
Day. This day has come, but Ivan, through force
of will, finds himF'.-lf stronger rather than waalcer.
and thereupon he dooms the false prophets to an
Ignominious and violent death, and ho commands
Godunoff to execute the. sentence. A game of
chess Is opened between the despot arid the traitor.
Ivan begins to sink. Oodunoff triumphs. The
pangs of death seize upon Ivan, and, beneath the
gaze of his victorious enemy, he totters and i'allB;
and a hideous rout of ribald Jesters cumes surgring
around him, and so he expires in horror, "un
houßeled, disappointed, urianeak-d." Nothing more
impressive, of its kind, has been seen on our stage.
There are twenty-eight prjrrs in this tragedy, but,
asido from that of Ivan, only five of them are of
any importance. Mr. Mansfield has a strong com
pany, but he overshadovs it. and at present he is
doing so much that no observer can bestow
thoughtful attention upon all the details of all the
achievement. Even the elaborate and splendid set
tings have to be, for a while, ignored. Some of tho
stage pictures and costumes in "Richard 111" were
especially magnificent. •Ivan" has been richly set.
To-night "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" will be pre
sented. "Richard III " 1* announced for Friday
night, and "Beau Brummel" for Saturday after
noon. Saturday night >-vill be devoted to "The
Merchant of Venice." On Monday, March 27, "A
Parisian Romance" will be acted, and Mr. Mans
field will give his remarkable performance of
Baron Che vrial— with which he first captured
the laurel in New-York. These plays will I}ll
the time till April 10. when Mollere's "Mis
anthrope" will bfl produced, and Mr. Mansfield will
act Alcesto. The splendid Intellectual eitort and
achievement involved In ail this ought to impress
the public, — if anything can impress it. — with a
sense of this actor's extraordinary power and amaz
ing versatility. Merely to memorize all these parts
is an exceptional achievement. To act them, to
eupply the body to the author's soul, to give the
vitality, to discriminate the characters, to create
the illusion, to Impart tho feeling, to direct, control,
and manage the auxiliary forces, to be brilliant,
puissant, adequate, never neglecting any detail ami
always rising to the occasion — this it is to fullll a
great public duty in a thorough and able and mag
nificent manner: and if achievement like this does
not deserve public recognition and such little reward
as public approval can bestow upon it. a long ob
servation of theatrical life is not able to discern
anything that does merit thpse blessings. W. W.

Building to Cost $2,000,000 for
"International Salon."
A -well known artist Informed a Tribune reporter
ysaUrday that a movement was well under way to
erect In this city, at a cost of about J2.000.000. a
building in which will be annually held an "Inter
national Salon." This movement Is independent of
the well known plan of the United Arts Societies
of New- York to erect a oentral art home at a cost
for site, building- and endowment of about $2,000,000.
The artist declared that two millionaires of this
city had already pledged themselves u> subscribe
the KTeatar part of the J2.000.00e required, after cer
tain conditions had bean fulfilled. One of the mill
ionaires had promised to contribute over J1, 000.000
to the project and tho other $500,000. There are
about thirty-five artists, mostly of this city, who
are Interested In the enterprise. So far as the
plans of the projectors have been formulated. It 1b
purposed to erect a building In a central paxt of
the city large enough for a comprehensive exhi
bition of American and foreign art and to provide
a home for the art societies of New- York, if they
can be Induced to go into the scheme. The works
of an shown at the international exhibition for a
month or more will then, it is proposed, b* sent
to several other cities. Including Boston. Philadel
phia and Chicago, for exhibition.
The artist said it waa expected that building
operations would begin this fall. He declared that
the United Arts Societies of this city were no nearer
realizing their ambition to have a central art home
than they v/ere a jear ago. It wa» desirable to
have all the R rt bodies of New- York unite in the
scheme, but that, he maintained, was exceedingly
difficult to accomplish, as each society wished to
preserve its fndividuality. Nevertheless, the project
of the International Salon" In a monumental home
had such strong financial sacking that It -would be
successfully carried out this year.
Carnegie Lyceum. . .
The graduating class of the American Academy
Of Dramatic Arts gave their final performance at
Carnegie Lyceum last evening, presenting . "Mag
da." Miss Mary Lawton, whose unusual promise
lias already been" noted In this Journal, essayed the
title part, and on her work the interest centred.
The opportunity for Judging this work was better
than might be expected, for her support was sur
prisingly good. Just why these students can play
Sudermann, as they have three times this win
ter, excellently, and fail with about every
thing- else, would be a pretty problem.
Miss Lawton'B performance, then, had soma founda
tion to build on. and excuses were not in order.
Over her performance in "The Fires of St. John"
bne snows Improvement, an easier grasp of the
larger emotional moments, a firmer command of
neracif and her audience. In such moments she
displayed last night something of the eloquence
mat both wins attention and rouses a response. It
Is in her quieter momenta that she is still deficient
in the ability to command the shades of emotion
her very evident intelligence dictates, and la mill
deficient in comedy. This "tfagda was quite too
serious a person. Physically Miss Uwton has
every right to play the part and similar parts de
manding beauty and a commanding physique Mr

A Recital of Sonatas.
In Mendelssohn Ha.l U.«t night Mr and Mrs. Da
vid Mannes gave a co icert of chamber music. In
which three sonatas for violin and pianoforte had
performance and a hearing. Ths> compositions
were Bach's sonata In A. Beethoven's in F (op. 24)
and Brahxns's In G (op. 78— three works which
illustrated effectively the progress nade in the
form which contains within Itself such large pos
sibilities of pleasure for the intimate circle af
music lovers. Under modern conditions this form
is not for the many, and last night's meeting had
Ideal conditions In respect of audience, room and
other circumstances. It was an agreeable affair,
seriously planned, artistically carried out and gra
ciously received. Otherwise, its significance was
not large.
The season of the Philharmonic Society, which
will come to an end with the public rehearsal to
morrow afternoon and the concert on Saturday
evening, to be conducted by Gustave F. Kogel. has
been the most profitable in the history of tha
organization. The treasurer reported yesterday
that the receipts for the regular concerts during
the present year exceeded by 20 per cent the tak
ings of the society last season, when the or
chestra played to the highest figures it had until
that tima attained. The society's plan of engaging
noted conductors for the concerts met with even
greater Buccess than during the first year of its
trial. Whether or not this policy la to be followed
for another season will be decided at the annual
meeting to be held next month.
