ta n,4 I i W :f )'TT JP RTTA DE. At the Hippoc THE LAST WEEK. "The Merchant of Venice"?The Shaw Rumpus. 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 poetry. "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. NEW BILLS.

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 Peter's friends, are camping, and with them is the dark skinned Tiger Lily, who loves Peter Pan. Through this scene and all of them floats the character of Tinker Bell, a fairy whom mortal eyes only see as a dancing flash of light. The pirates attack the Redskins and drive them away. Hook puts poison in Pan's medicine glass, but Tinker Bell drinks it, and is about to die when she is saved by the reassuring mes? sage that all children believe in fairies. Then the little Darlings start for their home, but they and all of Peter's band are seized by the pirates and carried on* to the black flag sloop. But Peter comes to the rescue, the band throws the pirates into the sea, while Peter, after a single handed contest with Hook, throws him to the crocodile.

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.

On Sun? day afternoon and evening the Hungarian Band will give its usual sacred concerts. Williams and Walker continue to head the bill at Hammerstein's Victoria for the coming week. The return of these colored comedians to vaudeville was signalized by record breaking attendance tho last week, and the hit of the darkey funmakers was instantaneous.

In the operation of transforming th< great stage for the two scenes of the produc tlon more than one thousand tons of scenery ii handled by nearly two hundred carpenters am property men. One piece, representing a ruggec mountain, supports fifty tons of elephants ii motion. The biggest and heaviest section o: individual scenery towers fifty-three feet and ii one hundred and fifty feet wide. It weighs flfteer tons and the efforts of sixty-five men are re quired to set it in place. The ground cloth, 1m ported from Ireland, is the largest piece 01 canvas ever sewed together. Claire Heliot anc her lions continue the shivery sensation of th? Hippodrome's incidental circus. Her only weap ons of defence and offence are a slight blunt rod and a small whip, but her subjugation of th? big beasts of the jungle is so thorough thai the chance of accident seems remote. Keith's begins November with a bill that is calculated to counteract chilly weather condi? tions as well as allay the fevers of the political campaign, since "one touch of humor makes the whole world pleasant." Keith's will open at 11 a. m. on Election Day, and for twelve hours continuously there will be fun galore In the old Union Square Theatre.

Only a Sign of Revolution?Peo-pl& Fitted for S elf-Government. "No country in the world is more ?capable of self-government than Finland.'* said Professor 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? nish Diet and a professor in the University at Helsingfors. Professor H. Montague Donner i? connected with the Girls' Technical High School in this city. -It has been Impossible for him to 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? ishment of hiu relatives from the country. "Finland has been accustomed to self-govern? ment in a greater or lesser degree for centuries/* said he. "The national character of the Finns la one of peculiar independence of mind, marked by ?t great measure of self-reliance. From the ear? liest times of Swedish domination, six centuries ago, the Finns were recognized aa a race apart. and were willingly granted a measure of self i government which made them distinct, political? ly, as well as ethnologlcally, from the great mass of the Scandinavian peoples. From a constitu? tion which took Its beginnings in the middle of the fifteenth century, there has grown up amona the Finnish people a deep sense of nationality. Constitutional government has trained the peo? ple to meet every sort of political and social problem with prudence, foresight and wise con? servatism mingled with a desire for progress. '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 read and write. "Practically all of the young people reach the high or normal schools, and It is tlH ambition of every peasant to give his children an educa? tion. The University of Helsingfors, founded four years after Harvard College, is about the size of Yale University. The population of the country is only 2,700,000, slightly below that ?I Massachusetts. Latin, and often Greek, Swedish and Finnish, French often, and English, by going Into commerce, are siudird. The resulf id that the pper classes are thoroughly c polltan. "There has never been any known corruption In Finnish public life. This is one of the r they are the most eminently fitted of all petjp] 3 of the world for national existence. Th*?re is no thievery of any sort. The people have a hmh sense of pride in personal honor and a hiVh standard of integrity. Practically all the peo? ple are members of the Lutheran Church. There is little litigation and few murders. The d?sath penalty has not been executed in more than a century. The people believe in long terms oi imprisonment for punishment. "The statement that the red flag was raised! in Helsingfors may give a wrong impression t<j some people, who think of it as the sign of ;.?. archy. The feeling connected with the red V.at} in Finland does not savor of anarchy at all. II is simply an expression of the revolutionary idea, the democratic* idea as opposed to autoc? racy. It is an embodiment of an orderly and progressive development of democratic ideas. The whole machinery of government Is thor? oughly organized and has been seasoned and Improved through century after century by practical use." AT VIHGIZ?TA KOT SPBI1?G9.
