At the Hippoc
THE LAST WEEK.
"The Merchant of Venice"?The
last week, was marked ehbefly by the Sothern
and Marlowe production of "The Merchant of
Vfcttlce" and the brief but exciting: career of
"Mr?. Warren's Profession." It is rather a pity
that the production of the latter play Bhould
have been attended with so much rumpus just
at this time, for attention was thus drawn away
from the Shakespearian revival, and a worthy
atteir.pt at serious thing? was mode almost un?
heralded. Mr. Botbera and Miss Marlowe have,
in many ?ays, achieved the best result so far
In their career as twin stars In this revival.
Mr. Bothern, to be sure, is rot a exeat Shylock;
eren his friends would hardly have expected
that he would be. But he comes nearer to the
tragic stature in this role than in any he has
yet attempted. He is a man of intelligence,
technical skill and high purpose, and all this
ia manifest in his performance, which, If It
never thrills the beholder, never inspires a great
pity or a great repugnance, is yet ?consistent,
??otur^SQue and interesting. His Shylock is
peiaonal rather than racial, melodramatic rather
than tragic?probably because Mr. Sothern has
not tie powers to lift the part into a tragic,
?zadel champion. But yet it lives through the
bsautlful scenes of the drama, and carries the
attention with it M3ss Marlowe's Portia, of
coursa, is plentifully endowed by nature with
th?*e physical charms the imagination has In
HM? the character withal. A little artificial
Id the early scenes, a little less than the measure
cf the -m<arCT" speech, she is none the less a
charming, graceful, winsome Portia, full of
humor and resolution and sweet feeling. Her
audleooss h*-? hailed her with delight.
The Bofml? features of this interesting per
iornr?nce are among* its chl?Bf merits. Some?
thing too much blue, maybe, lies in the Venetian
atmoaphere and on the canals; blue is seldom
?b? dominant note in Venice. But the numerous
Bosnes are all attractive and luxurious; more
often than not they reflect a real quality of ro?
mance, of moonlight elopements, of mandolins
?i_d tenors on the canal?"Two in a Gondola."
Tb* pity of the performance is that the sup?
porting company ara 6o wretchedly inadequate
to rn?et the demands of the verse. They are so
Inadequate that one is thankful for the omls
alon of the Immortal lines in Act V. beginning
"On such a night"- lines that, as Matthew
jLrr.c! 1 said, are saturated through and through
?1th Celtic magic, and remain, with certain
lines from Keats, at the pinnacle of English
"Mrs,. "Warren's Profession" has been per?
formed twice in public?once in New-Haven,
once ti New-York. Doubtless the programmes
of those two performances ?will become valuable
as souvenirs, the record of a curious page in
theatrical history. There have been numerous
plays permitted in New-York which were far
more harmful, per se, than "Mrs. Warren's
Profession"?the first act of "Zaza,** the kiss
in the first act of "Iris," the D'Annunzio
plays, such as "The Dead "City" (which, for?
tunately, nobody understood), could be to
the young man or woman in the audience
far more insidiously immoral than, by any
stretch of the imagination. "Mrs. "Warren's Pro?
fession" can be ?oon?ceived to be. They appealed
directly and with perfumed persuasion to the
?tases, to the emotional imagination. Mr.
Shaw* s r'.ay does not appeal to the senses at
all; Mr. Shaw is incapable of creating real emo?
tion In his puppets, his mouthpieces. Its appeal
la entirely to the intelligence, and intelligence
sever msde a man's thoughts run riot, though
it do"? not always prevent. But Mr. Shaw's
play was unfortunately misadvertised, and It
therefor?? attracted to the theatre an unspeak?
able ?procession of 6ensation seekers?racetrack
touts looking for a new thrill, Mrs. Warren's
New-York cousins, young men about town, a
few girl? who should have known better, along
with the "chain gang" and the Shawites. "Mrs.
Warren's Profession" is too serious a social sore
to be prol>ed by any such crowd as this was, and
?he hardened "chain gang" revolted at the sight,
told Mr. Daly so. and he (helped by the police
orders'" abode by their decision. That was as
it should be. Yet it is a pity the play could not
have run ils normal course and died a natural
death For died it would have, simply because
O. B. Shaw utterly lacks sincerity in his treat?
ment of the revolting theme of the play, ajid.
lackii.it sincerity, the drama is neiiher interest?
ing nor worth while. The average, sane au?
dience would have turned awn y in tired disgust,
"?<i 1? t the piny die. And what Is needed Just
now are a few more frosts for Mr. Shaw In New
York. The actual fate of this drama here has
?nly mart.? a martyr of him in the eyes of those
who wii! not see htm as less than a Jeremiah.

traok of the pirate is a crocodile, which, having
tasted of one arm, wants the other. Pan and
the children go to live in his house below the
woods, where Wendy becomes the Imaginary
little mother. Above, the Redskins, who aro

"Fruhllngsluft" Is now nearlng the end of its
successful run at the Irving Place Theatre. It
will be heard there for the last times during
the present operetta season on Monday, Tues?
day and. Wednesday evenings, with Lina Abar
banell in the comedy part of Hannl. On Thurs?
day evening next Mr. Conried will present the
second musical novelty of the Irving Place The?
atre, an operetta in two acts, entitled "Jung
Heidelberg" ("Young Heidelberg"), which has
been popular for more than two years in Ger?
many and Austria. The book is from the pens
of L. Krenn and C. Lindau, while the airs and
concerted numbers are due to Carl Milloecker,
the composer of "The Beggar Student." The
story told in "Young Heidelberg" is a sequel, of
a hilarious kind, to the more sentimental tale
told on the dramatic boards in the favorite play
"Old Heidelberg." Prince Carl Heinrich, the
hero of "Old Heidelberg" revisits the university
town In which he had spent the happiest mo?
ments of his youth, and renews his acquaint?
ance with his now middle aged former sweet?
heart K?the. He has arranged a marriage be?
tween his son, Prince Erich, now in his turn a
Heidelberg student, and the Princess Irene. The
plot shows how the objections of Prince Erich
to the match are overcome and has much to
do with the improbable but diverting adventures
of that refractory personage and his boon com?
panion, a young lieutenant, named von Vogel.
Lina Abarbanell will interpret the part of the
lieutenant. Appended is the cast:

"No country in the world is more ?capable of

H. Montague Donner the other day. Professor
Donner is the son of a former Finnish Senator.
He has ait uncle who is a member of the Fin?

return to his native land since the Czar began
the process of Russianizing Finland because his
writings have made him persona non grata, and
such a visit would probably result In the ban?

"Finland has been accustomed to self-govern?

of the Scandinavian peoples. From a constitu?

the fifteenth century, there has grown up amona
the Finnish people a deep sense of nationality.

'The prosperity and progress of the country*
under its own parliamentary government for the
ninety years during which the Russian Czars
kept their oath to respect the Finnish constitu?
tion is conclusively shown by the astonishing
Industrial and educational development of the
country. The amazingly low percentage of il?
literacy of a fraction of 1 per cent, a figure no?
where equalled in the world, has been attained.
This means that only one person out of every
130 is unable to read or write. There Is no one
in the rising generation who is unacquainted
with these two branches. The Lutheran clergy
absolutely refuse to marry any one who cannot

of every peasant to give his children an educa?
