Fiftieth Anniversary Marked by
Festive Dinner.
A half century of successful business
| was celebrated by the Home Ufe Insur
i ance Company by a dinner at the Hotel
' Plaxa last night. George E. Ide. the presi
! dent, was the toastmaster, and besides the
i directors, officials and office and field staffs
i of the company there were a number of
; guest, including William H. Hotchkiss,
! sui>erintendent of Insurance: R. G. Ogden,
j Darwin P. Kingsley. Charles A. Peabody.

I Dryden. Mel\-ille E. Stone, LJoyd C. Grie
! com. p. F. Murphy, the Rev. Dr. L* Mason
I Clarke and the Rev. Thomas R. Slicer.
William H. Hotchkiss. State Superintend
ent of Insurance, was engaged at Albany
( with a hearing on insurance matters, but
managed to reach the hotel late and in
his short address commended the Home
Ufe for its record and for having escaped
without a scar from the searching inquiry
of the Insurance investigation.
"Supervision that supervises is necessary,
not only as a safeguard, but to insure
confidence In the companies," he said.
"The only alternative is the appointment
of a representative of the state on each
board of directors, and I hope that will
not be made necessary. Co-operation be
tween the Insurance Department and the
companies to Inspire confidence on the part
of the public and protect the interests of
the policyhoiders will insure lasting bene
tfls to both the companies and the state."
W. M. Kingsley proved an optimist, and
deprecated the publication of so much
about graft charges in Albany and Pitts
burg, insurance scandals, high cost of liv
ing and the eruptions of Mount Etna.
Patrick Francis Murphy gave as an ex
cuse for his presence that he was of the
plastic material of which policyhoiUers are
made. Life insurance companies, he had
always considered, had no soul to speak of,
tut were a mere aggregation of majestic
buildings, invisible directors and that dia
bolical institution that nobody understood,
tne yearly balance sheet. "As the indis
cretion of one woman makes more notse
than the virtue of & thousand, so the one
policyholder who dies after only one pa>
ment makes more noise than the thou
sands who patiently pay their premiums
year after year," said Mr. Murphy-
President Ide, in his address, remarked
that he hoped the 98 per cent of honest
business in insurance would not be made
to ?ufTer for the 2 per cent that committed
irreg-ularittes. and expres&ed the hope that
a rhange would be made in On regulation !

Pauline Chase Refuses $150 for
Signed Roosevelt Photo.
A bid of $150 for a large photograph of
Theodore Roosevelt, bearing the signature
of the former President and a. message of
good cheer to the Actors' Fund of America,
■wa- a refused, tentatively, last night, when
It was put up at auction by Miss Pauline
Chase, the little American actress, who
came all the way from Ixmdon to sell it
at the Actors' Fund Fair, in the Tlst Reg
iment Armory.
The name of the bidder -was withheld,
but it was announced that the man who
made it would take the picture at that
price, the money to be turned over to the
Actors' Home, on Staten Island, unless a
higher bidder was found Jaefore the fair
closes at the end of the week.
After r>anlel Frohman had introduced
Miss Chase and told of her special journey
and mission to this country, having arrived
yesterday on the Kaiser Wllhelm der
Grosse and intending to return to-day on
the Mauretania, he announced that a pre
vious bid of $50 had been offered for the
Roosevelt picture and asked for more. Al
though several hundred persons quickly
gathered about the auction block in front
of the "Court of Honor," upon which Mr.
Frohman and the actress stood, no one in
the crowd offered to raise the first bid.
Then the private offer of $150 was an
Miss Chase, meanwhile, disposed of sev
eral other pictures — one of J. M. Barrie,
the dramatist, for $34, and others of nota
ble English actors and actresses for
lesser amounts, until the total of the auc
tion sale, including the Roosevelt private
bid, amounted to 5755. She had brought
some 600 pictures with her. and the others
were offered for sale by her during the
evening at the Lyceum Theatre booth. Miss
Chase obtained the Roosevelt picture and
signature at the American Embassy, in
Paris, last month.
The attendance yesterday and last night
was estimated by the management as even
larger than on Monday, when President
Taft opened the fair. About ten thousand
persons visited the armory last night and
there was no abatement in the interest
shown by the crowds in the multitude of
attractions offered for their entertainment.
The receipts for the first Monday
were over $12,000, exclusive of the thousands
of quarters and dimes taken In at the
games of chance, of which there are a
score or more, including miniature horse
and automobile races, all proving tp be
some of the best patronized attractions of
the fair.
Charlotte Walker turned the racing wheel
for two hundred contests of the ponies yes
terday afternoon and it was noticeable that
the "paddock" was crowded almost con
tinually with women. "Jack" Barrymore
did a rushing business with the matinee
girls at the soda fountain by selling auto
graphs attached to the soda straws for 50
cents. Pauline Frederick leads by several
thousand votes in the contest for the most
popular actress and H. B. Warner has over
a tlfusand lead In a similar contest for
Persons prominent in New York society
were in evidence at the fair last night.
Mr. and Mrs. George Gould and their
daughter Marjorie, now Mrs. Anthony
Drexel, and her husband, Mr. and Mrs.
Armstrong Drexel and Mr. and Mrs. El
bridge Gerry were among those who gen
erously patronized the many booths.
The miniature theatre is proving a star
attraction. The Professional Woman's
League, with a cast of thirty well known
actresses, under the direction of Miss Rosa
Rand and Miss Anne TVarrington, gave suc
cessful performances yesterday afternoon
and evening. Several highly amusing short
skits were given before a large audience.
Governor Giichrist of Florida will be the
guest of honor at the fair to-morrow night
and will receive at the Southern booth.
Many players and others from the South
to the city have been invited to meet him.
He will auction off the silver spoons that
he gave to the fair, and Southern delicacies
cooked by negroes will be served. , i
Special attractions at the theatre and at
the various booths have beep arranged for
the rest of the week.

National Sculpture Society Meeting in
Recognition of Life and Work.
In speaking of the life and work of the
artist Dr. George F. Kunz aaked last night,
"Do you want to wait until twenty years
after a man's death to give him recogni
tion?" Dr. Kunz was speaking at the me
morial meeting held in the Fine Arts Build
ing, in West B7th street, by the National
Sculpture Society for Henry Llnder. the
sculptor, who died last winter.
"If Llnder could have had this recogni
tion while he was yet alive, it would have
made him a prouder and happier man."
he said. "And yet he was a happy man,
even though he endured privation. He told
Daniel Chester French not long before his
death that if he hail his life to live over
again he would be glad to go through all
the dark part of it in order to live the
pleasures over again."
To illustrate the character of the sculp
tor H. A. MacN'i'. who presided over the
meeting, told the story of how Llnder
moulded a cast of a beautiful bowl, which
was used at a gathering of his friends.
When the toasts had been drunk and the
bowl was empty. Linder shattered It. An
other speaker was Sadakichi Ilartman,
who knew Llnder welL
About seventy-five pieces of Llnder'b
work are on exhibition at the American
Fine Arts galleries and vill bo open to
the public until May 20. Mrs. Linder and

Londoners Said To Be Planning
Invading New York.
It was learned on excellent authority yes
terday that a syndicate was being formed
Jn London to present grand opera In New
i York as a successor to Oscar Hammersteir
and in rivalry with the Metropolitan Opera
Company. It was not stated who tte mem
bers of the syndicate were, but there ;a
reason to believe that Thomas Beecham,
| who gave a sticcessful series of opi-ra per
formances at Covent Garden last winter, is
back of the enterprise.
Of interest in this connection is the fact
that Joseph Beecham, the father of th«>
operatic Impresario, who was recently In
New York, said in an Interview that his
son would certair.iy come to New Tork next
year with his orchestra. Mr. Beecham. sr.,
further said that his son had intended to
come last March, but was prevented from
doing so by his Covent Garden season.
Mr. Eeecham was to have begun a sea
son of popular opera in London during the
autumn, but the death of King Edward
• renders this project doubtful. It would not
I be surprising if he transferred his opera
to New York, succeeding Oscar Hammer
' stein in direct opposition to the Metropoli
tan Opera Company.
Mr. Beecham' s season in London was a
pronounced success. Among the novelties
that he produced was Strauss's "Elektra,"
and, encouraged by that success, he had
made great plans for the autumn, engaging
an orchestra of 115 musicians under the
leadership of Dr. Hans Richter, the noted
Wagnerian conductor. Should Mr. Beecham
decide to proat^ce grand opera in New York
it is thought that he will find little diffi
culty In securing the Manhattan Opera
House as a field for his venture.
Mr. Beecham is a man of great wealth.
Sound of Hisses Magnified There,
Says Arthur Nevin, Home.
Arthur Nevin, the American composer,
said yesterday, when he arrived here on
board the Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, that
attending an opening night of one's own
opera at Berlin, when one was an Ameri
can, was not so pleasant for the Aerlcan
as listening to an opera by a German com
poser. He said he might be prejudiced in
favor of his own music and might have
biased views about "Poia," his opera, when
critically compared 10 some operas of Ger
man origin. But so far as being present on
the opening night was concerned, he
doubted if he could bring himself to hoping
for the honor of undergoing such a rush ot
feeling a second time.
He eaid it was awful to feel that way.
The applause for some of the music of
"Poia" was so strong, he said, that he was
induced to go before the curtain. He was
sorry, because right away there were nisses.
He said he had heard hisses when others
were the object, and had always remem
bered the sound as comparatively subdued
in tone. In the Berlin Opera House, he
says, hisses sound like steam whistles.
When he woke up it was morning, and he
looked at the newspapers. The critics
were all hissing, too. He couldn't account
for it at first, because he did not see how
the opera alone could produce so much evi
dence of personal abuse of its composer,
and then he learned it was rumored
that the Crown Prince was financially
backing th 3 work. Mr. Nevin, who is a
brother of the late Ethelbert Nevtn, and
eight years his junior, said he did not know
the Crown Prince. Probably the fact that
his was the first opera by an American ever
accepted by the Berlin Royal Opera had
had eomething to do with th^ trouble, he
"Poia" was given for four performances
and then •withdrawn. Mr. Nevin saJd he
could not tell whether the opera would be
produced here soon. He is working on an
other opera, to be named "Twilight," that
■wi!! also be American in theme

States, who together own and control two
hundred of th« well-known travelling com-
Jbiuatlons in this country, in addition to
individual ownership of theatres or leases
of theatres in the big cities. They have
placed the booking of their various com

Revival of "Jim the Penman" at
the Lyric Theatre.
Charles Frohman set a good example
when he revived T. W. Robertson's "Caste"
at the Empire Theatre a month ago. WBJ
iam A. Brady and the Messrs. Shubert have
done well for the public in resuscitating Sir
Charles L. Young's "Jim the Penman."
which they did notably at the Lyric Thea
tre last night.
These managers are to be congratulated
on their achievement. Their success shows
that even under our present star system it
Is possible to gather together companies for
limited engagements at least equal in effi
ciency to the stock companies of the past-
Playgoers In their twenties are not famil
iar with "Jim the Penman"; some In their
thirties are; those In their forties should
be, for it was first presented in this city
at the old Madison Square Theatre on No
vember 1. 1886. This followed the first Lon
don production at the Haymarket Theatre
on March 25 of the same year. For the ben
efit of those who have not seen the play let
the story briefly be told.
James Ralston, an Englishman of wealth
and position, is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
He. unknown to his family and his friends,
Is "Jim the Penman"— forger, chief and
scoundrel. He won his wife by breaking off
her engagement to Louis Percival. a dear
friend of his, by an exchange of letters
which neither Percival nor Nina ever wrote.
Hn robbed Percival of the savings of a life
time by forging a check in hla name.
Only a few days before the marriage of
his daughter Agnes to Lord Drelincourt he
agree? with Baron Hartfeld. a German ac
complice, to rob his soon to be son-in-law
of family jewels valued at £140,000. In jus
tice to Ralston, however, let it be said that
he is forced into this scheme much against
his will upon the promise of Hartfeld that
this will be their last coup.
The identity of Ralston with "Jim the
Penman" is first discovered by Captain
Redwood, a Pinkerton detective, who has
been on his tracks for years. He communi
cates the information to Percival and Per
cival accidentally informs Mrs. Ralston,
when the latter expresses her knowledge
that it was her own husband who had
forged the letters which had blighted their
happiness. On the day of his daughter's
marriage to Drelincourt Captain Redwood
recovers the diamonds from Hartfeld in
Ralston's own house. In a scene with
Hartfeld in the presence of Redwood Ral
ston drops dead from heart failure while
the guests are making merry after the
The play is exciting in plot and incident.
And it carries two very pretty love stories,
those of Agnes and Lord Drelincourt and
of Nina and Percival. The characters are
drawn with great skill — even the minor
ones. You read through the dramatis per
sonas years after seeing the play, and the
characters shine forth witli the clean-cut
precision of yesterday. You expect James
Ralston, Mrs. Ralston. Percival. Redwood
and Hartfeld— the chief characters— to be
clearly delineated, but it would not be a
matter of special comment if such minor
folk as Mr. Chapstone, Q. C. Lady Duns
combe, Dr. Pettywise and Mr. Netherby,
M P., were forgotten. Agnes Ralston—
what a charming and clever woman she
was! She could set Mr. Chapstone right on
a point of law and showed Dr. Pettywise
that he had treated a fever patient wrong.
In the words of George, one could back her
common sense against all the judges on
the bench, throwing in the Lord Chancellor
besides. "With what affection she treated
her children! "With what tenderness she
met Percival after the broken chain of their
love of years before! With what shame
!=he learned of her husband's felonies! And
with what scorn she condemned: Miss
Ro>erts in her impersonation o? this char
acter v.as effective at all times. Her per
formance will long be remembered with
I The most popular figure in last night's
performance was that of Captain Redwood,
the detective, which ■ was most capably
played by Mr. John Mason. With what
delicious sense of humor this favorite actor
showed his appreciation of and familiarity
with the character! Not once did he fal
ter in his lines, and whether falling asleep
or lying awake he was ever alert to the
situation. He spoke his lines with excel
! lent precision and understanding, and
never for one moment did he appear as a
person of the stags stagey.
Mr. Lackaye gave a very good account
| of himself in the unpopular role of Ral-
I ston. In appearance and manner he was
' a striking scoundrel- He used his excel
lent voice to good advantage and rose
fully to the occasion in the important
scenes with Agnes and Hartfeld. As he ac-
I quires greater familiarity with his lines
! his performance will increase in effective
! ness. Theodore Roberts, as the suave and
! devilish Hartfeld, acted with distinction
I one of the most difficult roles of the play.
! Thurlow Bergen, excellent actor that he is,
i was miscast. In manner, speech and act-
I ing he was a twentieth century American
and not a British lord of the 80s. Miss
Marguerite Clark, charming little woman
that she is, suffered for the same rea-
I son, although her performance was spir
ited and interesting. Ernest Glendinnlng
was a manly young George Ralston. Miss
Jeffreys !>wi3 was amusing as Lady
Dunscombe, but a little • more subtlety
would have improved her acting. Arthur
Forrest created a most favorable impres
sion as the faithful, kind and generous
Louis Percival. Frederick Paulding, in
make-up and actlnsr, was a realistic
; Mr. Netherby. James Kearney as Mr.
Chapstone and Louis Massen as Dr. Petty
wise — or Pettyfool as Redwood called him—
were successful. Miss Grace Reals did
well in the minor part of the gossiping
Mrs. Chapstone.
Seldom has so large an audience greeted
so favorably a play of any kind in this
city. Time and again the actors bowed
their acknowledgment to loud applause.
At the end of the third act "William A.
Brady, who had charge of the rehearsals,
made a brief speech, in which he thanked
the audience for its appreciation. He said
that ho wished that he might be the au
thor or" a play which would be received
with such cordial approval twenty-five
years after its first presentation.

he had concealed inside bim a luncheon
given in his honor by Melville E. Stone, of
The Associated Press, at the Lawyers' Club.
He enjoyed the show at the Hippodrome,
for K. Midzuno. Japanese Consul General,
