Mr. Pinero's Second-Wife Comedy
at the St. James's.
London. February 3.
Tiie undertone of Ironic laughter in Mr. Pi
«.ro '* new play is caught even in the title. 'His
House in Order" records the experience of a
Trldower whose second •wife is so j>oor a house
keeper That he is impelled to uepose her and
to |o»*« tar at Hh mercy of his orderly first
iMe'f relations. This is the flimsy expedient by
*hich Mr F!lni«r Jessou. a solemn, hearties?,
bcnelcs? prig, as well as a wealthy member of
parliament, hopes to set Mi house In order as
precise and as respectable as was known when
lamented Annabel, of pious memory, kept
ererythsngr in its place, had tin meals on time
M apparently an irreproachable hostess
tr.l f^lr-i** l - The Irony is perceived at the
close of the third act. when there is a posthu
»T!OttS revelation that the first wife was a vhtt*d
ffpStbn «nd that his house was full of un
r ■•-■- ar.d immorality when he fancied that
It *-6F In perfect order. The,, title suits the
CBOC&J rnnre close!/ than "The Second Mrs.
7as*on" would have done, for there is a sharp
cor.trapt between the play and "The Second Mrs.
Itagaersy.** In the earlier play the. first wife
•wa* hard'v more than a stone effigy, in the
r.ewer though dead, she still ppeaketh In
unceas:::? tributeß from the' Rid«reley family to

«Ives r"iduces a variant of the Tanqueray

nero's cards. Indeed, little If anything Is do
injr in the second act beyond a complete exhi
bition of th* RidgeWys and two outbreaks of
temper from the second Mrs. Jesson. Of talk
there is almost as much as in Mr. Shaw contro
versial revels about everything under the gun.
The chief topics are the late Annabel and the
memorial park; and the pompous Sir Daniel
Rldgeley agrees with his wife that a band stand
would bo un-English and unmistakably Conti
nental. Nina, under secret Instructions from
the diplomatist, proposes an artistic fountain;
but Geraldlne. the martinet housekeeper, and
Pryce Ridgeley. a prig as hypocritical as the
old bore Sir Daniel, voice their discontent with
anything so indecent as a female figure in mar
ble or bronze. The young -wife flies out of the
room In a rage and speedily returns to beg
everybody's pardon. When she hears that An
nabel's boudoir, which has been closed since her
death, has been allotted, not to her. but to little
Derek, she is furious with wrath and breaks out
In hot rebellion. Let the neighbors and the
newspapers say what they may. she will not ren
der tribute to Annabel by attending the official
ceremonies in the memorial park. So ends the
second act. after the diplomatist has preached
to dull ears the parable of the French cook who
heard too much about the marvels of his prede
cessor and finally in despair blew up the kitchen,
There has been no earnest drama yet. but it
Is coming:; after Nina, unrepentant and defi
ant, has appeared in a rose pink costume among
the mourning Rldgeleys and refuser] to accom
pany her husband to the park. When they leave
her by herself an opportunity for throwing down
and smashing the sacred image of Annabel
comes to her. Little Derek has found under the
floor In his mother's boudoir a reticule, and
when his bark is turned Nina opens it and draws
out four faded letters from Major Maurewarde
to Annabel. From these it is plain that the
first Mrs. Jesson was an unfaithful wife, that
she had planned an elopement when she met her
death by a carriage accident, and that Derek
is Maurewarde' son. Vengeance is now in the
power of the slighted, injured "second wife: but
in a really thrilling scene she i? disarmed by the,
eloquent pleading of the diplomatist, who per
suades her. as an act of mercy to the living and
the dead, to give up the letters and not to break
silence. After this intensely dramatic duel
comes the fourth act. in which th* diplomatist
turns Maurewarde out of the house and then
reveals the secret to the husband after the re
turn from the ceremony in the park. What he
had begged her not to do he does Impulsively
himself, after trying to induce his obstinate
brother to treat his wife more affectionately and
after witnessing her meekness and patience when
affronted anew by the persecuting Rldgeleys.
After a fierce onslaught upon the least offensive
of the priggish and sanctimonious relations of
the first wife, he witnesses their expulsion from
power and the reinstatement of the second Mrs.
Jesson as mistress of her own house. When the
incriminating letters have been burned the
chivalrous squire of dames leaves husband and
wife by the fire and softly closes the door be
hind htm. as they look, with renewed confidence,
Into each other's eyes. »
Mr. Pinero's play is constructed with the mas
tery of technique for which his best work li
conspicuous. The story is deeply interesting,
and Is told with directness and cumulative force.
The comedy passages are fresh and" sparkling;
the treatment of the smug, snobbish, self
righteous Ridgeley family is frankly farcical
rather than cynically satirical; and there is
strenuous melodrama In the third and fourth
ects. The diplomatist's appeal to the injured
wife's conscience and magnanimity is perhaps
more convincing than his own justification for
blurting out the incriminating secret after he
had sealed her lips. Indeed h<» was impulsive
rather than consistent, and finally acted from a
rough sens© of justice for a persecuted woman,
who had earned by noble, unselfish conduct de
liverance from heartless hypocrites, who were
bringing virtue, charity and religion Into con
tempt. There Is no problem In the play except
the struggle of a sorely tried, exasperated wom
an to overcome her passion for resentment, when
an irresistible weapon for executing vengeance

was in her hands. Her Inefficiency In house
hold details explains her deposition; conquest
ever self opens the way for her reinstatement,
with such chances of happiness as may be pos
sible with so stolid a husband. The first wife's
guilt Is kept in the background as the abstract
cause by which a contrasting effect of regenera
tion of nature is produced in her successor. It
is a fine play, with a strong sense of character.
and it reaches a much higher level of motive and
action than is touched by Mr. Pinero's ordinary
stage traffic. It Is most brilliantly enacted at the
St. James's Theatre. Mr. George Alexander has
never been more delightful than in the scenes
requiring vivacity, playfulness and sympathy
as the diplomatist, nor more eloquent and per
suasive than in the impassioned appeals for
generosity and justice. It is one of his most
notable impersonations, and is finely matched
by Miss Irene Vanbrugh's performance as Nina,
In which sullen discontent, hot-headed rape,
righteous indignation, triumphant vindictlveness
and noble self-sacrifice are successively de
noted. Mr Lyall Swete's is the best caricature
in the Ridpeley group; Mr. Herbert Waring does
what ho can to make the narrow minded, cold
blooded husband tolerable; little Miss Hawkins
is the best child performer seen for many a day;
and all the minor parts are well taken. Alto
gether, Mr Pinero's reputation as a playwright
has been redeemed by strong, earnest and brill
iant work. I. N. F.
Major Gillette Springs It- Tells of
Family's Ostracism.
Savannah, On . Feb. 14.-'-Major Cassius X
Gillette's testimony was finished to-day, and
the Greene and Gaynor trial moved on to other
witnesses, not, however, before the session had
proved the most interesting and dramatic that
has yet been held.
In the cross-examination of Major fJillette by
Mr >Fhorn<\ for th»» defence, a sensation was
created when the witness plunged Into a revela
tion of the difficulties he had encountered In
Savannah because of the- prosecution of Captain
Oberliti M. Carter. lie and his family. h<» inti
mated, had been received, but coldly, and there
was a practical ostracism from that society in
which Carter had long been a favorite. He
quoted a conversation he had had with Mr. Os
borne. the attorney >Toss-examlnins him. in
which the latter had told him that the animos
ity developed against him because of his atti
tude toward Carter for brazen effrontery was
without parallel In the history of crime."
Mr. Osborne endeavored to shake the witness
in his memory of this statement, but Major Gil
lette adhered to it. declaring that he had re
peated it many times since, and that it was nn
observation so striking that it could not have
slipped from his memory.
