WOMEN WHO TOOLED THE CO AC HES IX THE ANNUAL PARADE OF THE LADIES' FQUR4N-BAND DRIVING CLUB YESTERDAY. llttS. THOMAS HASTINGS. MISS CORNELJA BRYCB. THE rOACfILNG PARADE. 'Annual Meeting of Ladies' Four-in- Hand Driving Club. The populace was on hand bright and early for the annual parade of the Ladles^ Four-ln-Hanfl Driving Club yesterday morning, Long before 11:30 o'clock, the hour announced for the start, a big crowd had gathered around the park entrance at Fifth avenue and 7M street, where the coaches ■were to meet. It was a democratic crowd, and It came In ail sorts of ways— on horseback. In private carriages. In automobiles, In cabs more or lees rickety, and on foot. There was a large contingent of young men Immaculately dressed and carrying canes, anxiously asking everybody In sight, as the coaches appeared one by one, which was "the Iselln turnout" and •which "Mrs. M&ekay's coach." and if "that little man with red flowers In his buttonhole" •was E. H. Harriman. Blase spaniels and bull pups lolled from the windows of carriages and looked a trifle enviously at the East Side children who had wandered over to see the show anal who were free to risk their lives at th*ir own sweet will. Why no baby was Wiled Is a mystery. Every nursemaid ■who took her stand on the south Hide of the drive ■was Immediately possessed with a desire to get herself and her charge over to the north side, and every nursemaid on the north side was convinced that the south side was a much better place from •which to see. Between these and the cabs that had to be "chased" away from the park entrance, the policemen on duty there had their work cut out for them. Tb* parade was an opportunity not to be lost by the little retail milliner. Now was her time to pcan the hats of the women she had read about, and she did It. Not only milliners and dressmakers, but Innumerable other women with a non-profes sional but none the less keen Interest In hats and coats and gowns, closed eagerly about the waiting coaches. Photographers were everywhere. They darted under the horses' noses and stood massed on the pavements, their head:, under their camera cloths, like assemblages of enormous bugs. In fact, the only Impassive figures were the footmen, who stood like yravec in.ares at the heads of the champing horses. OCCUPANTS OF COACHES. At 11:30 o'clock sharp the trumpet sounded, and the nine coaches waiting in line along 72d street swung off through the Park. Mrs Thomas Hast ings, president of the club, led the way, dressed in a driving costume of blue cloth and tooling the- four spirited bays with easy skill. Mrs. Hastings had the ■use of Mrs. Clarence Mackay's coach, and Mrs. Mackay, wearing black chiffon cloth and a large black picture hat trimmed with great white poppies, •was one of her guests. The other occupants of this coach were Miss Dorothy 'Whitney, Joseph Minott end Thomas Hastings, who sat on the box seat with Mrs. Hastings. The second coach was driven by Miss Louise Gulliver, the club's secretary. Her guests were' her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. Gulliver, Mr. and Mrs. C. I>>dyard Blair and Phoenix Ingraham. Miss Cc^nella Bryce's turn out -was a study in green and white. The body of }he coach was green, and both guests and horses were decked with bunches of white carnations. On the box seat with Miss Bryce was W. M. V. Hoffman, and her other guests were Mrs. Hoffman, Mrs. J. Sergeant Cram and T. Markoe Robertson. Mrs. W. Goadby Loew drove the fourth conch and had as her guests her husband. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Brokaw, Miss Angelica. Gerry, who was dressed all In baby blue, and Worthington White house. Next in line came Miss Dorothea Cromwell, guiding her fours. The Misses Dorothy Kissel and Alice Borland, who were with her, wore winter furs and looked exceedingly comfortable in them in epite of its being the second day of May. The men on this coach were K. Victor I>oew. Joseph H. Hunt and Gilbert Francklyn. and Inside the coach was a fourth man, Charles G. Francklyn. Behind her sister's coach came that tooled by Miss Gladys Cromwell. On th«« box peat with Miss Cromwell was George* G. Haven. jr., and behind them were Miss Lily Lee Page, Miss Muriel Bob bins, Cyril Martlneau. of England, and Harry Felham Robblns. Miss Harriet Alexander, seventh In line, was accompanied by her father, Charles B. Alexander, on the b«x seat, and by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Earle Stevens, Miss Anita Peabody and Robert Russell. The eighth coach had many eyes focussed on It. for there Fat E. H. Harriman, imperturbable ias ever. In spite of the fact that a Madison avenue car had struck the coach'*' on the way to the meet ing place and come rear putting It out of com mission. Miss Cornelia Harriman tooled this coach, and her guests, besides her father, were her sister. Miss Mary Harriman; Miss [Catherine Elkins, of Washington; Julian Gerard and Robert L. Gerry. The red flowers which were the in- Plgnla of this coach, made it a vivid bit of color as It flashed along the gray road. Mrs. Arthur Iselln, vice-president of th« club, brought up the rear of the line. On the box seat lat her Bide was her father. Colonel William Jay. Mr. and Mrs. Austen Gray. Miss Margaret Dix and Mr. Iselln were Mrs. Iselin s other guests. DRIVERS IN FINE FORM. The horses, restive from standing and made ner vous by the tooting and fizzing and smoking of the innumerable automobiles that had plunged In »nd out through the crowd at the meeting place, would hrve been a match for any club of men drive! but the women behind them handled them without trouble. They looked like true drivers. In I their trim, blue costumes, stiff white hats and white or tan spats, and they held the ribbons like drivers. Along the East Drive to the head of the Mall, then \tf way of the West Drive to the circle at 105 th street swung the cavalcade, a bright trail of changing c-lors under the gray sky. The woods on cither side were dull, only a few green buds had put forth here and there on the branches, but this grayness only accentuated the gaye*/ of the coaches and of the dresses of the women they held. X After the coaches hastened a long train of ve hicles of all kinds, open carriages and closed car riages, filled with the friends of the paraders. There were people on horseback, at.d there were many •buses and cabs, hired at the last minute by people •- unwilling to resist the fascination of following the • al •V* circle Mrs. Ha»tlnss halted her coach. Then the fight otrer coaches passed in review be loie her? MrV. le-iin :.. !ng tint to pass, and after h"r Ml«« Harriraan. then Miss Alexander Miss G'\dys Cromwell. Miss Dorotheo Cromwell.

Mark Twain Episode May Disrupt Theatre Society. If Mark Twain ha? been following the dimen sions in the Century Theatre Club he will prob ably be interested in the latest development In the situation, of which he has been unwittingly and no doubt unwillingly th» cent ml figure. The elec tion of the Century Theatre Club Is only a week off, and it Is a matter of common talk amonsr the members that the genial humorist, who was In vilt-d to preside over the club's booth at the Actors Fund fair and then informed by the president^ Mrs. Sydney Roper that it might be Just as well if he accepted the invitation of the Players instead, was utilized for political purposes. "The situation is this," said a member yesterday. "Mrs. Rosenfeid had served the full length of time that the constitution permitted, and. expecting: to retire at the end of the present club year, she had had Mrs. Edith Ellis Baker, chairman of the pres ent fair committee, in trainlr.p. as it wore, as her successor. Most of us liked Mrs. Baker, but wo liked Mrs. Rosenfeld better, and we wanted to re tain her. if possible Bo we amended the constitu tion. It was Cully understood and, in fact, it was plainly stated at the time :h.> action was taken that the purpose of the amendment was to enable our president to run again, an* no one. made any objection to it. Neither was any name placed in opposition to hers, and, though there »r» now two tickets in the field, there is only one presidential candid; "But Mrs. Baker's friends were a little disap pointed, and probably that feelinp grew upon them as time went on. Anyway, a good many of us believe that there was a fir-Fire to have Mrs. Rosen feld resign. The committee knew perfectly well that it was Impossible for her to receive Mark Twain at her booth. Her devotion t • her Church is no secret, for when Mrs. Eddy's ukase against clubs that draw the sex line was issued she re signed from all eurh clubs that she belonged to and remained in the Century Theatre Club only because it admits men. Even if the thing had no political bearing it wan an unpardonable affront to the president Wo all love and admire Mark Twain, but it was not necessary to have him at our booth. There are other people who could have written autographs for us." Some of Mrs. Rosenfeld's friends said yester day that she had no intention of resigning. Other! paid she, probably would. She herself was not to be seen It has been said at her home, No. 30S West 96th street, for the last few days that she was out of town, but she will be here for a meet ing of the executive council to be held at her own home this morning. As plans have just been completed for making ii..- club a national organization, the question of its presidency is one of considerable Interest These plans will be put into operation in Bi ptem ber and provide f<v the organization of branches in the principal Cities of the country. The club exists for the purpose of studying and criticising plays and producing those of its members. It haa four hundred and fifty members, all but about twenty-five of whom, according to one estimate, are solid for Mrs. Kosenfc-ld. A SEASIDE CLUBHOUSE. Tent for Mothers and Children To Be Erected by Brooklyn Women. Tho mothers' clubs of the Brooklyn schools fire going to have a tent at the seashore tiiis summer. They have placed $4<vi for the purpose In the hands of Miss Fannie Belle Curtis, supervisor <>f kinder gartens In that borough, an<i have promised to raise J!,ov». Two kindergarten t< achera will be in attendance at 1 1 is u-nt all summer. There will be milk for thr- children, and Lea r<>r th<^ mothers and all the shovels and pails that the little folk can use on their outings. Miss Curtis told this story at one of the sessions of the Kindergarten Convention in the \\"H<i!'-it'.. HUh School yesterday afternoon, and said she was sure the mothers who have a share in this seaside clubhouse Will never want to take th'-ir children to the crowded resorts, where there is no proper provision for their com fort or pleasure. "And after we pet the tf-nt started," she said. "we are going to do something to offset the cheap theatres and concert balls. The mothers' dub is a great power, and I consider <>:i! v."ik with the mothers o.uite as valuable to the Board of Edu a tinn as that of the kindergartr-n Itself, and it is very Important that the kindergartner should al ways have time for this work." The meeting was a round table conference on mothers' meetings, about the Importance of which all the sneakers were agreed. To ill istrate the in fluence (.f the kindergarten >'" the home, Miss Vir ginia (Jra*ff. ut Boston, told "f a sm.il! boy who eaid t« his mother after she had punished him in the time-honored way: "Th<m ladies what I love, them nev< r whips me." "I'll never whip Johnny again!" said the mother to the kindergarten teacher, who had already t"id h*>r mothers' iluti that there wen better ways than whipping. "I want him to love me, too." Mrs. waiter 11.I 1 . Harvey recalled a mother who was less amenable to kindergarten Influence. I i»-r young hopeful was so dirty flat he was noi to be endured, so t!;>- kindergarten teacher wrote to his mother that Rico positively must have h bath, u> was so dirty that he smeUed. Next morning Rico entered with all his sins still upon bis head and bearing a note which he presented triumphantly tn the teacher. It read. "Rico goes to .school to be learnt, not to be smelt." RUSSIAN IMMIGRATION. In the twentieth anniversary number of "Tha Jewish Exponent" Louis Edward Levy, speaking of the Russian immigration, says: To England and its colonies and to the United States those that could have made their way and others are following. But the number Of those who are so fortunate i.- too small a proportion of those who must needs stay where they are to materially change the situation there, and so the future of the Jews In Russia must ultimately remain bound up with that of all the rest of the Russian people. That future is now In process of evolution through revo lution, and, although a generation must yet elapse before the political and social reorganisation that is going on in the Russian Empire can be followed hi' normal conditions there, and although much bloody travail must yet ensue before those condi tions are realized, there is clearly no other out come possible. In the mean time the situation which developed in the German Empire after its constitution in 1870 will doubtless be paralleled in a more or less modified form in Russia., and the Jewish people of that and the adjacent countries, when In the enjoyment of civic rights under a constitutional government, will, like the German Jcwk before them, cease to emigrate from their native homes and no longer bo, as they have been during the last twenty years and more, th« fclorm centre of current Jewish history. - ', NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE.
