♦nan and In the precocious but convincing work
of a little girl as the grandson— best stag«
child Men for a lone time. .
"Everybody's Secret" would be a nice little tea
tab'.e play It there vrere not a flaw In th? por
celain saucer. In Pierre Wolffs "Le Secret de
Pollchinelie" there was no marriage between
the young officer ana thr- flower girl, and French
andienres were not disturbed or shocked when
the little child drew the old people In turn to
the modest lodgings and finally Induced them to
condone Immorality. TJhe adapters— Captain
Robert Marshall and Mr* Louis Parker— have
respected British social conventions and have
converted the flower grirl Into the lawful wife;
but they have &!«> considered It necessary to In
dicate the French origin of the play by putting
Into the young officers mouth a confession In
two lines that marriage followed the birth of
g, s child. If these two lines were cut out, there
would be a play not unlike "Caste," and the
gambols of the old people with the grandson
could be witnessed sympathetically by children
of all ages. The French porcelain, too brittle
to endure the strain of pressure, has cracied in
the adapters* handa The artificiality of the
concessions to morality is apparent when seduc
tion is confessed. In place of the delicate, frag
ile Sevres saucer, so transparent that the light
seemed to shine through it, there Is a bit of
English Worcester with a long, ugly crack from
rim to rim, with signs of clumsy use of cement
In the patching. This is what usually happens
when French plays, adapted to social conven
tions and ethics In Paris, are made over to suit
the serious British public. The process of recon
struction Is not thorough; an artificial compro
mise is adopted, and the made-over play lacks
both the artistic qualities and brilliancy of the
original text and the wholesdme sweetness and
homely tenderness of English life.
So light a play has needed a curtain raiser of
dramatic force, and "The Monkey's Paw," by
Mr. Jacobs, has been designed to precede it, but
after a few trials it was discarded as "too
creepy a shilling shocker." In one respect this
change of programme is unfortunate. Mr. Ja
cobs's play in three scenes, while distinctly un
canny, was admirably enacted, Mr. Maude being
at his best In the part of the simple minded old
man, distracted between superstltitous awe and
family affection. The talisman from India con
veys the mystic power of enforcing fulfilment of
wishes, and this 1b followed by poignant regret.
The first wish is for £200, needed for wiping out
the mortgage on the old man's house, and it is
carried out when the solicitor appears In the
morning to offer that sum as compensation for
the accidental death of the only son, \vho has
been killed at the electric power house over night.
The second wish comes when the sorrowing
mother, looking toward the churchyard. wher»«
the boy has been buried, wants him back, and
there is at once a mysterious knocking at the
door. The third wish follows the frantic efforts
of the mother to unbolt the door, when the
father, in his anguish of heart and supernatural
dread, catches up the monkey's paw and implores
that the boy may return In peace to his grave;
and it is granted when the door is opened, and
the entry is silent and Ttiere was power
In this little curtain raiser, and there was fine
acting in it; but the resurrection scene was more
than sensitive spectators could endure, and
consequently "The Monkey's Paw" has been
get aside. The substitute for it is "The Case of
A«o!i," a play in which the Dutch actor Mr.
Henri de Vries has been acting seven parts at
the Royalty Theatre and working with remark
able skill a series of rapid transformations of
character. I. N. F.

The physician at the Long: Island Home; in
Amityville. where Maurice Barrymore. tho actor,
died on Saturday, said yesterday that although
Mr. Barrymore had been bedridden for two years
previous to his death, he had been able to recog
nize relatives and friends who called to see him
at Intervals. No messages were sent to hte rela
tive* immediately before h» died, because his col
lapse was too sudden to permit of calling- any one
from a distance. No relatives went to the Institu
tion before hie body was removed by an under
taker. Messages had been sent to Miss Ethel
Barrymore, in Philadelphia, and to Lionel Barry
more, at El Paso, Tex.
Yesterday the undertaker In Amityville received
an order to take the body of Mr. Rarrymore to

England Gi:rs $250,000 Merely for
Redecorating Her Paris Embassy.
The English government has Just been spending
1250.000 in merely decorating and refurnishing Its
embassy at Paris. Th« embassy, since early In
the nineteenth century, has been housed in one of
the grandest palaces of the French metropolis,
which, built two hundred years ago, was tenanted
during the First Empire by Princess Pauline
Borgheae, the lovely sister of the great Napoleon.
Some of tho furniture In the embassy belonged to
her, in particular the magnificent mirror and b«d
in the state bedchamber occupied by King Edward
when In Paris two years ago.
Ijord Leven and Melville, who has just been
created a knight of the Order of the Thistle by
King Edward, officiated as best man to the late
Duke of Manchester on the occasion of his mar
riage In New- York to Miss Consuelo Yznaga, and
haa for some forty years past been one of the lead-
Ing Anglo-American bankers in London. He is
senior partner In the banking houses of Melville,
Evans &. -Co. and of Melville. Flckua & Co. His
half-brother and predecessor In the title was a
partner of Williams, Deacon & Co.. while his
father, the eleventh earl of Leven, was one of the
partners of the original firm of Williams, Deacon,
Labouchero, Thornton & Co., a great London bank
ing house of the early pert of tho last century.
The eleventh earl was co much of a ■business man
that he actually went to the length of disinherit
ing hla youngest son, the Hon. Norman Melville,
for having sent his boys to the University of Cam
bridge, "whereby the probability of his becoming
fitted for business had decrejised."
Lord Leven's family is a very ancient and dis
tinguished one.. Melville Is not only its patronymic,
but likewise th« title of Its second peerage,
Lord Leven being likewis* Earl of Melrlllo. The
first Lord of Melville was the Ambassador sent
from Scotland to England In 1587 to plead with
Queen Elizabeth for the life of Mary Queen of
Scots, and tho first Earl of Leven was a very
eminent soldier, a field marshal in the army of
King Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden, fieurlnc as
one of the generals of Oliver Cromwell at the 'battle
of Marston Moor, and afterward taking a leading
part in tho Restoration.
Lord Leven Is the King's High Commissioner
to the General Assembly of the Church of Scot
land each year, and while tho General Assembly Is
In session— that Is to say, lor about a fortnight or
three weeks m the spring — enjoys most of the pre
rogatives of a viceroy at Edln-burgh, making his
headquarters at the Palace of Holyrood. where he
is provided with a fullfl edged court, with cham
berlains, lords and gentlemen In waiting, as well
as with a military household and a military escort.
His salary for this fortnight is •10.000, but he usual
ly spends at least five times that amount out of
his own pocket in maintaining the dignity of the
Count Woronzoff-Dashkoff's appointment to the
■viceregal office of Governor General of the Cau
casus, following co closely upon the murder of the
Grand Duke Serglus, indicates that Empress Marie
has once more recovered her former influence over
her son, the Emperor, who while Sergius lived was
more or less dominated by his advice. For the
Woronzoffs are the oldest and dearest friends of
the widowed Empress, but have been subjected to
much neglect by the Cxar. since the count incurred
the hitter enmity of Sergius about seven years ago
at Moscow. It has been frequently asserted, not
only abroad, but in Russia itself, that Sergius and
his sister-in-law. Empress Marie, harbored the same
political views, and were united in their political
advice to the Csar. Tet nothing" can be further
from the truth, and the Emperor's treatment of
Count Woronzoff for several years past Is merely
one of the many illustrations which could be cited
in demonstration of the fact. Indeed the Empress
Marie and Sergins were on the worst possible
terms, and whereas the Grand Duke was, Jointly
with his brother Vladimir, responsible for the pres
ent policy of the government toward Finland, the
widowed Czarina has always championed the cause
of the Finns, remembering that some of the hap
piest years of her married life were spent among
them. At the courts of St. James, of Copenhagen
and of Berlin it is known that Empress Marie bit
terly resents their oppression and denounces It, and
now that tho Influence of Sergius Is gone, and that
she Is recovering 1 in a measure her former sway
over tho Czar. It is probable that happier times are
in store, both for the Finns and for the Poles, for
whom she- has always entertained a moro pro
nounced sympathy than any other member of the
imperial family.
Count Woronzoff is one of the most prominent
figures in the great world of St. Petersburg. He
was the boyhood friend of Alexander 111, with
whom he had been brought up from earliest child
hood. On the marriage of the late Emperor he be
came chief of his household, while between the
countess and Alexander's bride there soon sprung
up an intimacy nn close as that which existed be
tween their respective husbands. Indeed the two
women have had practically no secrets from one
another, and the relations between them, have been
rendered all the closer by the fact that, owing to
the vast wealth of the countess and the lofty posi
tion which phe already enjoyed at oourt, both by
birth and by marriag«, sh* alone of all the mem
bers of tho Imperial entourage has been above sus
picion of Reif-interest and of Intrigue.
When Alexander 111 ascended the throne he ap
pointed the count, who had already received the
epaulet* of a general at the age of twenty-nine, to
the office of Minister of the Imperial House, a
plaea which in those days was almost equivalent to
that of Vice-Emperor, as not only was he In su
prems control of the entire court and of all the ad
ministration of the crown lands of Russia, but also
of the government, since no Minister and no paper
or official document could reach the sovereign save
through him. It speaks volumes for the count
that, although calumny Is quite as life at St.
Petersburg as at most other courts of Europe, no
one has ever been found to question the integrity
and the disinterestedness of the use made by the
count of these vast powers. Indeed the only fault
that can be laid at the door of the Woronzoffs is
that in their anxiety to spare both the lat* Em-
peror and his consort from every trouble and an
noyance they kept them in Ignorance of many
tliin^H that It would have been far better for them
to have known, especially in so far as public opin
ion and the sentiments of their subjects were con
cerned. The count remained In office as Minister
of the Imperial House until the coronation of tho
present Emperor, and he insisted on retiring,
owing to differences of opinion with Nicholas on
the subject of the responsibility for the terrible
catastrophe which signalized that event, a catas
trophe which. It may be remembered, led to the
loss of thousands of lives at Moscow. Strictly
speaking, the dispute was between the count and
the Grand Duke Sergius. The latter was wholly to
blame for the disaster, but attempted to exculpate
himself by denouncing 1 some of tho subordinates of
the count whose cause the latter defended. As
Nicholas showed a disposition to side with Ser
gius. the count resigned, and from that tlmo forth
was rareK seen at court, retaining, however, the
undlminlßhed favor and friendship of the widowed
The Vioeroyalty of the Caucasus Is so Important
that It has usually been held by the most trusted
member of the Imperial family, old Grand Duke
Michael having occupied It for years. For there
has always been the danger that th© Viceroy might
take advantage of his extraordinary powers, as
well as of the disaffection and turbulence of the
various warlike races of the Caucasus, to become a
menace to the crown and to the government at
St Petersburg. Just at present the Caucasus,
owing to the reverses of Russia In Manchuria, Is
In a more disturbed condition than ever, and what
renders the situation particularly critical Is that
the malcontents there are believed to have. If not
the actual support, at any rate the warm sympathy
of one embittered member of the Imperial family,
namely, the ultra-radical and so-called "Red" Grand
Duke Nicholas Michaeliovitch, who, virtually boy
cotted by his relatives at St. Petersburg and ordered
by the Emperor to remain abroad, has. In defiance
of these commands, secretly returned to th« Cau
casus and Is believed to bavo bad a band In the
troubles now raging there. Count Woronsoff-Dash
koff i» one ot the very few Ruaslan dignitaries,
perhaps the only one, possessed of sufficient prestige
and authority to deal with a rebellious member of
the reigning family. For when he was Mlnls*^
of the Imperial Household, the stern <Sl<
whlch the late Cxar was accustomed to maintain
over his relatives was usually exercised through th«
agency of the count, whose daughter, by the by©, is
married to young Ellm Demldoff, Prince of San
Donato. and who recently was acting as Muscovite
charg« d'affaires at Copenhagen.
General Baden-Powell, the defender of Mafeking
In the South African War, and now the Inspector
general of British cavalry, counts atnonj his an
cestors Captain John Smith, of Virginia, whose
name ia always associated with that of the Indian
Princess Pocahontas. Th« general. In addition to
his many other accomplishments, possesses In a
very marked degree that of sculpture, and has late
ly completed a very striking bust of Captain John
Smith, which is to be presented in the fall of this
year to the State government of Virginia, and is
likewise- to figure In the world's fair at Norfolk,
Va., organised for the purpose of celebrating ths
tercentenary of the founding of Virginia.
Much interest, by the bye. Is being manifested in
England in connection with this celebration. For
Virginia was the first British colony on tho Amer
ican continent, and there is probably no portion
of the United States where more numerous repre
sentatives are to be found to-day of old English
families, the younger sons of which came over dur
ing the reign of King James in the train of Chris
topher Newport, after whom sc many towns and
cities hava been named. It Is on this account that
Virginia enjoys In a very special degree the sym
pathy and good will of the English people, ©special
ly of tbe British aristocracy.
Word was received yesterday In this city of the
death at Camdon, S. C, on Saturday of the wife of
Dr. Franklin Carter, former president of Williams

twenty years at the head of the college at Will
lamstown, Mass., he resigned; but continued to act
as president until his successor. Dr. Henry Hop

Works of r Amerieans That 'Attract
Appreciative Attention.
Paris, March 7.
The exhibition at the Grorgres Petit Gallery of
upward of seventy pictures by Walter Gay
elicits interest to a degree seldom manifested in
Paris toward a foreign painter. The "lntlmtste
Amerlcain," as he is called by the French oritW s,
haa concentrated his artistic conscience In the
last ten years upon the portrayal of Interiors
and a felicitous interpretation of hospitable
hearths, intimate boudoirs, homelike dining
rooms, aesthetic libraries, and so on. He has
studied with care the problems of Indoor light
and atmosphere, and his minute analyses of re
fined, luxurious home corners, in spite of their
microscopic Meissonnierlike finish, are never dry
and mathematical. There is nothing photo
graphic about them. He takes us into the old
Fairbanks house at Dedham, the library of
Longfellow's house at Cambridge and Trinity
Church at Newport, and brings us beside the
captivating firesides of well known Americans
in New- York, Boston and Newport. One of his
pictures is of the hall In the residence of Mj-s.
G. R. Fearing; another Is of the beautiful
Louis XV boudoir of Mmc, Julia Bartet, of the
Comedie Franchise, which offers a striking con
trast to the stern Anglo-Saxon severity of the
library of Lord Ribblesdale. A luxurious note
Is presented in the luminous Parisian drawing
room of Mrg. Edward J. Tuck. There are
studies of somnolent libraries In the houses of
M. Francois Flemeng and M. Paul Ollendorff,
and of the studios of Helleu, Thaulow and Mr.
Gay himself. A wider range Is shown In the
paintings of the oval courtyard of the Palace of
Fontalnebleau ; the carp pond at Fontainebleau
belonging to the Countess de Beam; of the
Chateau of Courance, belonging to the Marquise
de Ganay; of the Seville tobacco f acton*, loaned
by the Luxembourg, and of the Cluny Museum,
with Its mediaeval tapestries and historic fur
niture. There Is an air of life in "Walter Gay's
Interiors, and his exhibition 1b the most suc
cessful of the one man shows of the present
The rooms of the American Art Association in
the Rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs are open for
an exhibition of American and French paint-
Ings of unusual interest. Abbott Graves sends
a pleasing picture of his two ohildren studying
geography on a large revolving globe-map. F.
C. Frleseke has a happily composed and
cleverly colored picture of a society beauty
looking at a mirror as she puts the finishing
touches to the adjustment of her corsage. E.
L. Warner succeeds in rendering Notre Damo
Cathedral with imposing solemnity and mys
tery- Alexander Harrison's daring and lumin
ous studies of flre and flame rising skyward in
the darkness of night, like strange glowing ser
pents, are novel and suggestive. There are
other night studies, notably those of the Bein^
at Paris, by P. C. Dougherty, and "The Pont de
Solferino," by Charles Bittinger. H. O. Tanner
exhibits a mysterious conception of "St.
Peter's Remorse," the scene of which, is placed
near the walls of Jerusalem. There are Vene
tian studies by Eugene Vail and by Faulkner;
a clever and harmonious "Seine Barge," by
Alson Clark. St. George Huntington exhibits
clever and truthful scenes on tho banks of the
Olse; Lionel Walden presents some brilliant,
strongly brushed bits of Mediterranean blue sky
and water. Paul Bartlett's bass-relief of the
death of Warren at Bunker Hill has the vigor
and delicacy of line that one expects from the
sculptor of the equestrian statute of Lafayette
In the Louvre Garden. Splcer-Simson's me
dallion portrait of General Horace Forter is
well conceived and is an excellent likeness.
Side by side with these works of American
artists are characteristic pictures by Raphael
Collln. Caro-Delvallle, Aman-Jean, Jean Paul
Laurens, Henri Martin, Aim* Morot. E. R.
Menard. Roybet Chabas, Cormon, Besnard, and
Eugene Carrier. Altogether, the American Art
Association, In this its third exhibition of tho
season, does itself genuine credit.
A novel manifestation Is found in the show
of the "Artistlo Association of Amateurs," now,
open In the Cour La Reine, somewhat ironi
cally described aa the "Salon dv Gotha," owing
to the royal or noble lineage of the artists.
The King of Portugal sends a large strongly
drawn pastel representing a landscape near
Alemtejo, in which clusters of venerable trees
with time-worn barks and deep hollows are
effectively produced. The Queen of Portugal
exhibits four delicate water colors. One of
these represents Don Jaime de Braganza land
ing on African soil at the head of his troops,
and the others are pleasing drawings of church
relics and of ancient jewels in the possession of
the House of Braganza. The Duchesse. de
Chartres sends some fascinating water color
drawings of flowers. Prince** Waldemar of
Denmark, exhibits a series of .uatlc birds and
studies of mushrooms. The Countess of Flan
ders sends some delicately painted fans. The
Duchess of Vendome's water color drawings of
thistles are greatly admired. There are- pastel
portraits by the Princess Ghlslaine de Caraman-
Chlmay, by the Duchess d'Estissac, by the
Countess Thfiodore de Gon taut- Biro n, by the
Marquise de Grollier, and by the talented Mile.
Marie d'Epinay. There are delightful land
scapes painted by Countess Pierre de Cosse Bris
sac. by Baroness Lambert, by the Marquise de
MacMahon, and by the Countess Olivier de
Beaumont. Among the members of the sterner
sex who exhibit are Count Guy de La Roche
foucald, Count Suau de la Crolx — whose trans
lucent enamels are beautiful in exeoutlon — and
the Marquis de L'Algla.
Ow.ing to the prevalence of spurious but often
deceptive imitations of old and of contemporary
masters, the Society of »he Friends of the
Luxembourg Museum, un.er the patronage of
M. Dujardln-Beaumetz, Under Secretary of State
for Fine Arts, is about to organize a "Bureau
of Authenticity" for works of art. A number
of experts are to be attached to the bureau,
duly provided by the Prefect of Police with the
full authority of police magistrates. There is
to be a thorough search, high and low, for falsi
fied pictures and statuary. The Idea Is new
in France, and its application will meet with
almost Insurmountable difficulties, but M. Dv-
Jardin-Beaumets is confident that with patience
and indefatigable perseverance these will in due
time be surmounted. G. I. B.
His Condition Is Unchanged and Chances
About Even for Recovery.
Surgeons at tho Flushing Hospital said yesterday
that thoy had decided not to perform an operation
immediately on Sterling M. Stuart, whose spine was
broken by a fall from a window of his mother's

from the day before, and the surgeons said there
seemed to be about an even chance for his death
or recovery.

Walter Damrosch Engages Roof
Garden for Popular Programmes,
"Walter Damrosch - has been examtnlns; various
theatres and concert hails In this city during the
lost few weeks with a view to finding a proper
place for a series of orchestral concerts of the
more popular order, during the coming' spring and
early summer, somewhat on the plan of the Cen
tral Park Garden concerts conducted by Theodore
Thomas thirty years ago. Mr. Damrosch thinks
he has found the proper place for such a series on
the roof of the New-York and Criterion Theatres,
Broadway. 4-1 th and 45th sts.
This roof garden is enclosed In glass, affording
shelter from stormy weather, but which can be
opened in warm weather. Elevators carry the audi
ence to the roof, and staircases on all sides give
comfortable exits. The place will, it 13 said, seat
nearly two thousand people. Beginning on Satur
day. May 20, and continuing for three weeks, every
evening. Including Sunday, Mr. Damrosch and the
New- Symphony Orchestra will live pro
grammes of music ranging from the waltzes of
Johann Strauss to selections from the Wagner
music dramas. Every Monday night will be a
"Symphony night," and every Friday night a
"Wagner night." The programme will be changed
every evening, and it is the purpose of Mr. Dam
rosch and the management to provide New-York
with orchestral music of not too heavy a char
acter; -■;--;.,
