j at Wallaok'a. Tho othor excellent aotora In
', that lively drama, as well as tho authors and
fr managers, should concede unyTuditinsly to
I thoso two much of tho potency of the perform
y Antes. Mr. Uarrymoro represents In a plctur
i esquo fashion tho character tof Jean Lafitle, tho
historical buccaneer, who Is Introduced In this
florid Illustration of pases front tho annals of
Louisiana, This actor has takon many parts.
t 'from Shnkcsponro to compositions of his own,
4 Imt ho baa not or, if wo aro to judgo by applause
i flotio anything half so entertaining. Ills per

to their tallest posslblo value, lie la nn Ideal
J plrato, breezy, audacious, dorll-may-caro and
Ytry handsotno. Tbore Is another hero In the
I ploco. well portrayed by Stophon Ornttan, and
r other mon Important In the action aro given by
Hi. Waiting;, Mr. Fljrman, Mr. Merman and Mr.
y - Osbourno, but their "Ales aro comparatively
!, conventional, and so Mr. Barrymoro con and
does stand out beforo and abovo thom. Tho
g ease it much the samo with Miss Otis. Tho ou-
thors havo put Into their story a quadroon for
k ri tune tellor, and they may cling to tho idoa that
y , tbey are mainly responsible for the material
W with which Miss Otis has made a tremendous
V t bit. bnt tho foot Is obvious that the actress hor
J ' self elves groat distinction to the part. A more
' striking personage has not lately been seen on
' Our stage. This Creole prophotesa ia no has in
j race. Bba is a beautiful woman, rich and
, , - luxurious, with a commandlngr presenoe and a
dominant power. "A Ward of France" ia an
outright tnolodrama, florid, oven turgid, with
- Overabundant matter; but beyond all Its other
CBCcosslul appeals for acceptance, Mr. Harry
tnoro as tho hlstorlo pirate and Miss OtU as tho
' idealized soothsayer are responsible for tho en
' thuslasm which Is aroused by the pleco as per
formed at Wallace's.
, i "Chock," Connors is hoisting tho drama nt
tho Columbus, taking- tho placo In "On tho
Bowery" that was onco flllod by Brldgejumpcr
I' fcrotlle. Ilia elovation of tho ataco is ni.com-
J plUhod by moans of much in speech and gesture
that ia unusual, though'a disclosure of the sumo
quiet' bnt forceful methods was had with the
atige employment of Brodle and John Sulll
,j van. Of tho threo, ic Is Brodlo who wears his
chin furthest in front of his vest, and it is Sul
livan who can swine his opon hand outward
from tho wrist with tho greatest proiulso of car
nave. In olco there Is soma rosemblanco be
r tween Snlllvan ana Connors; not that the lat-
for approaches the other's bark. No human
I betas' has yet cut oil husky toneB quite so ox-
' ploslvoly as docs tho one-time pet of Boston,
and tho only imitation of his epeakintr that ia
all a counterfeit comoa from tho whistle of a
t New York, New Haven and Hartford tug
boat, which has noveryet had a collision bo
causo scows, canal boats, and even sen going
Vessels meekly sink at sound of its tooting.
Tho Connors tones aro faint copies of tho
. other's. Thcro is about them a touch of that
'tsnsklnoos which won for thecomlo lover of
Fixrmy Itrrrlnir's company the uicKiuiwe ot "Uio
,j, uy with tho hot Scotch voice." That quality
jf 'of the cx-champlon's tonos that mado ll possi-
ble to shut tho cj a on bin speaking and soe the
r Janitor ripping carpots Is lacking from the
xaothod ot tho "Mayor of Chinatown." It ia
" missed, too, for the play has him a Bon cry
bartender in a trroegcry that ha describes as a

H matlo temperament which is unschooled and

that old-faahloucd method of Introducing a for

ber manager that Blie will make no further ef
fort to act In this country, although tlio has pre
' pared tho role of Deborah in JCngllsb.
Ono incident in Mmo. Viurda's acting in the
churchyard tceno will make it clear haw naTvo
her ldes of dramatlo art must be. After
storming at Joseph in tbo customary way when
w the has perceived him with Anna in the church,
the actress carefully nreparos the way in which
he will rocelvo her lovor when ho enters the
churchyard. On ono sldo of the stage was a
cross standing on tho top of three steps. .Sud
denly dropping her emotions and hor heroics,
Mme. Vianla mado for tho cross, and, laborl-
Jiusly climbing tho stops, draped herself about
t. In that attitude she awaited the nppcar.inca
of Joseni. There Is nothing now to bo said of
. Mcsenthal's old play beyond tho fact that it
should never bo acted again, at least In English.

hardt could not mnke tbo old pleco vital, and,
under ordinary rlrruinstanoes, it is unendur
able. E. J. Henley's ATathan was splendidly
imaginative and sulitlo. Albert Gran looked
hondless as Joseph, and Ellen Cummins, with
ono brief Hceno as a persecuted Jewess, made a
real Impression. Mme. Vlnrda wore a number
of plcturedque gowns of a kind that ore a vast
improvement over the c-untomnry yards of whitt
cheeso-clath and black alpaca in which actresses

"The Princoss and tho Butterfly" was acted

i feet very different f'om any that it ever cre

MoKTionrxo, N. Y., Dee. IB. Tho caso of tho
Rev. Bavld T. Howell of St. John's Church,
arrested for choking his wife, closed last night
at 8 o'clock, and at 11:30, after threo and ono
half hours' deliberation, tbe jury found a ver
dict of guilty, and tho court fined Mr. Howell
or flvo days In jail. Tho rector refused to
pay his flno or allow his frlonds to, and was put
in tho Montlcello jail at 12 o'clock last night.
Mrs. Llzzlo Hon oil, wifo of tho rector, has
brought an action against Mrs. Samuel B.
Grocnc of Montlcello for alienating tho affec
tions of hor husband. Mrs. Greene la tho only
child of the Hon. Thornton A. Niven, and the
only grandchild ot tho lato Qcn. A. C. Niven.
Her mother was a noted hello of Montlcello,
tho daughter of tho late Col. I. P. Tremain, for
many years President ot tho Bank of Sullivan
County. Mrs. T. A. Niven Is also a niece of
Lyman Tremain, known In tho politics and his
tory ot tho State, Tho papers In tho milt wero
served on Mrs. Greene on Tuesday. Former

HowelL
Rector Howell was liberated this morning at 9
o'clock, tbo flno having been paid unknown
to the rector, and although Mr. Howell refused
to leavo tho jail, tho Sheriff Insisted on his go
ing. Ho rested well In his prison coll, nnd
when seen on tho street this morning looked
as smiling and fresh as though ho had passed
tbe night quietly in his pleasant bedchamber
at the roctory. He said to Tub San reporter
that his marital trouble nnd boen growing for
tho past sevcn'yenrs, nnd began soon nitor his
marriage. A new pharo of tho trouble com
menced about a year ngo, when ho found that
M-3. Howell had carried news ot domestic un
happiness outside, and partloularl) to thoso
who had been striving for hts ruin ovor
since he left the village of Warwick and ramo
to Montlcello. He says ho has had this troublo
In a greater or loss degree In all tho parishes
whoro ho had proachod. but hore there was a
faction that continually encouraged his wifo
and put her up to making his life a burden.
"I have novcr had a homo," said tho rector,
and hlCeyes filled with tears and hts nko be
came hiiBky In the recital, "never had a placo
whoro I could Invite my friends or brother
clcrcjnien. My wifo had often said Bhc did not
like church people and that 1 was n liar and a
hypocrite. She has refused to attend my
church sorvlces, alleging this to bo her rea
son." When questioned about the Bult begun by
Mrs. Howell against Sirs. Samuel B. ureono
for tho ollenatlon of her husband's affections,
he said he had just beard of It after ha cams
out of tbe jail this morning. The claim of tho
plaintiff seta tho damages At $50,000, and na
Mrs. Grceno is a wealthy woman, he sup
posed Uio amount was llxed In proportion to her
wealth rather than to the real vnluo of his atten
tions. The rector has been very much o" n so
ciety man since hla residence in Montlcello,
and baa spent much of his leisure tlmo in
playing lawn tennis and croquet at tbo homes
of tils parishioners. After evening service on
Sunday Mr. Howell frequently escorted Mrs.
Oroene to her homo and partook of a warm
supper, and qulto often of a week night he
could bo found In her clnboratoly furnitbed ro
coptlon; room discussing tho poets and favorite
fiuthors, but his visits there, he says, wero ouro
y legitimate and frlendlv. Ilia c alls, ho says,

and bao novor been questioned.

A point In tho Raines law was raised In Centre
Street Court yostorday by Cant. Vrodcnburgh
of tho Oak street station. The Clptaln had
summoned to court Nicholas Dee, a saloon
keeper of 80 Cherry street, to explain why a
warrant should not be Issued against him for a
violation of the Rainos law.
Cnpt. VreJcnburgh told Moglstrato Kudlich
that Deo hid a brother James, who, on April 8,
was pa rolod from tho New Jersey State prison
after serving four and a half years for larceny.
James Deo wns sentenced in 1892 to seven and
one-half years in prison for stealing $20,000
worth of tobacco from tho plcra of tho Rotter
dam Steamship Company In Hoboken. Gov.
Griggs paroled blm.ns two men known as Barry
and Hall, who are serving sentences ot llko
length for tho same crime, had inadn statement
that they wero to blame for James Deo' being
implicated In the crime.
'When I (culled al tho saloon a week ngo,"
said Capt. vrodcnburgh. "I found Juines Deo
behind the bar. I asked him if ho was employed
there, and hi said his brother Nicholas hud
left him in charge. My detectives aro also nblo
to swear to the same effect. Non, Judge, sec
tion S3 of subdivision 1 of tho Raines law de
clares that 'no ono who has been lonvicted of a
i rime, or shall bo convicted of acrime, or know
ingi) employs any ono Mho has been convicted
of a crlmo,' shall bo allow od lo traffic- In liquor.
It Is under that section that I want a warrant."
"I never knew that my brother worked for
me," said Nicholas Dee. "In fact, I told him
novor to go bohlnd the bar or do ono bit of work
about tho place. I allow him to stay about the
place out of pure chnrlty, as ho Is my brother."
"You had better bo careful In tlio futurf,"
snld Maistrato Jviidllch. "I will give 3 ou the
benetlt ot the doubt, hut If thero Is any further
complaint from the pollco In this case I will is

About forty angels ot ratroy and mining ex
peet to sail for tho Klondtko to-day. They form
tho lump of femininity with which Mrs. Han
nah Gould ot 230 West Twenty-socond ttreot
expects to leaven the lifo nt Dawson City. Th
steamship City ot Columbia will bear this
precious frolght down thtough the Straits of
Magollan, thoiico to Scuttlo, and thencoto St.
Mlchnel, where tho rivor boats will rccelvo tho
voyagors nnd transport them to Dawson City.
Tho steamer Is advertised to salt at 3:30 P. M.
Mrs. Gould says Bbo Is a strictly business
woman, and that tbo other women aro also bent
on business. Sho gives some details, howovor,
which arenotoxactly commercial. For Instance,
according to Mrs. Gould, when a woman who
owns a mining claim has " got all she wants out
of It " sho agrees to get out aud pass on tho claim
to somebody else. This Is beautifully indefinite,
of course, but Mrs. Gould regards It ns beauti
fully unselfish also. Sho says that no limit has
been set for tho passing on ot tho claim. It Is to
be dono when the owner has got " all she wonts "
out of It, When asked whether Bbo thought
this tlmo would ever como sho exclaimed:
"Why.yesi Don't youf Oh, I think women
aro too noblo-mtndod to w ant to keep on getting
riches when thcro aro so many ot their suffering
sisters who haven't oven enough to cat. Don't
Toil atlnnntA thnl T nflnp T tinit treii tinlF n. mllllnn

out of a claim, would pass it on to my ncody
sister t Why, thero aro hundrods of shopgirls
horo In Now York who oannot live on what
thoycarn. Do you think I would harden my
hoart against them and not be willing to glvo
them the samo chance I had enjoyed I"
Mrs. Gould did not explain how sho proposed
turning ovor tho claim after sho had secured
her half million, nor how tho deserving shop
girls word to bo put Into the Hold. When it was
hinted that a woman might not bo ready to
turn over such a claim, she said that sho was
thankful sho didn't havo such a telflsh woman
In herptrty.
Mrs. Gould's forty chnrges nro not expected to
denoto themselves exclusively to picking up
half million dollnr claims. Sho hit already
booked most of them for other occupations,
chief of which Is cooking at $1.00 an hour. Sev
eral of tho women aro to open boardln? houses
for the bloated nugget holders of Dawson City,
and fourof them aro going to soothe tho Klon
dlko'i heatod brow nnd tako Its tempcrnture
aud glvo It assortod medicines. Those aro tho
trained nurses, who will work: under tho direc
tion of Dr. Gregg of Pittsburg, who, according
to Mrs. Gould, has gnduatml from "I don't
know how many" foreign hospitals. They are
to tako a portable, foil-lined hospital ot their
own along, and will sot It up tho first thing
after their arrival.
Apropos of tho hospital work Is another ot
Mrs. Gould's uncommercial details. 8he says
that erery woman has solemnly agreed to look
after every sick man she comes across, whether
ho can pay her for It or not. Sho doesn't have
to nurse him through nn Illness, but she
mustcarotor him until sho can send for the
much-graduated Dr. Gregg and bis assistants.
K the woman is on her way to cook a mes9 for a
gang of miners, at $1.50 an hour, Mrs. Gould
siys that makes no difference. Tbo mess and
the miners, as well as tbo money, must wait on
mercy.
Mra, Gould has about thirty-five or forty men
In the party which sails to-day. About twenty
women and another group of men will follow
on a later stonrnrr or will go overland nnd Join
tho narty nt Scatl Ic. '1 ho Columbia will lay up
at Seattle abont six weeks waiting for tho Ice, to
pet out of th.o Yukon, bo Mrs. Gould say. Tho
pronent party Includes a minister, who will hold
onescrvlco every Sunday nnd stako claims be
tween times. Tho mi not tho party havo agreed
to put up tho hospital nnd tho tents for the wo
men before tbey start out prospecting. Thero
Is to tie a social end to the affair. There is talk
ot a clubhouse, where evening gathering will
beheld, and the oung mon, also tho middle
aged and old men, will lie welcome "as long ns
tber behave thomsclves." Thero will be no
cards for these affairs, and Introductions will
not bo nccessnry. Mrs. Gould says that tho
women aro not taking any "fancy waists" or
finery of any description. They may woar long
skirts to theso social functions, but even that
wilt not be obligatory.
"Each woman will havo an ordinary street
gown; the ono in which she leaves Now York.
Our ordinary costume will bo corduroy waist,
knickerbockers, and short skirts. We have long
covert cloth ulsters, made wnterproof outside,
and lined with sheops" wool. In winter wo will
wear heavy calfskin boots, and In a miner ru li
ber boots. For summer we have denim dresses,
hocause they are stout and yet not too warm.
We will wear felt hats, with leather binds nnd
broad straight brims, so that we can fSBtcn the
mosquttu nets to them. In winter wo wlil w car
fur suits UUo thoe the Indians near. The
trousers are fur lined nnd como to the ankle.
Tho skirt is lined 1th plaid woollen goods, and
tho walBt Is for lined. On our long ulsters we
have fur-llned hoods.
Mrs. Gould was very mysterious about a cer
tain part of tho uork plunned. Sho says they
will caro for all the poor patients thoy can
handle nnd she expects that the number will

The condition ot Fifth avenue above Fifty
ninth street is such thnt tho f athlonabla houses
ot that region aro praotically luaccosslbln and
tho persons who llvo In them nro quito nnnblo
to extend any hospitality to their friends. Kven
a dinner party, unless It bo given in a bouso
situated on a corner, is out ot Uio question. Mrs.
Astor was compelled for this season to abandon
tho Idea of giving a ball, and as the residents of
this part of Fifth avenuo lncludo many of tho
most fnshlonablo famlllos in tho city, their iso
lation has so far had a very discouraging effect
on tho social season. Ono grntleman who lives
on tho avenuo was lamenting tho other day tho
fact that ho could not even ask lib friends to
dinner, as there was no vnr in vhich a vehicle
could reaoh his door. It Plight lmvo been pos
slblo tor his friends to alight at tho corner nnd
walk to tho house, but that arrnngouiont was
too oomtilctcly dependent on tho weather to
tuoko It safo to send out Invitations. As no re
lief Is promlbod until February, it is likely that
this season will bo remembered as ono of the
least eventful. In a noclal way, that New York
has passed through In many years. Lent will
sot lh soon after tho streets nro In a condition
that makes entertaining posslblo uptown, and
tho wlntor will probably pass with no social In
cident to mnko 11 notablo nnd n much smaller

Iiatronago to tradesmen, nnd that brings a fur
her loss of employment to innuy persons who
aro dependent for their livelihoods ou Just tho
sort of expenditures which como from tho elnb
orato entertainments given by society people.

decided that hers wero comparatively so in

that tho concerts were draggod out to their In

Charles T. Hooper of 70 Nassau street, who
mado an assignment on Tuesday after having
boen for forty years a picture dealer in this city,
aid yestorday to n Sow reportor that his busi
ness had boon spollod through tho dulncsa
which had oxlttcd for tho post ten yeara.
"Within tho past thirteen years," ho said,
"I havo lost 910.000 that it had taken mo
twenty-soven jesrs to earn. The last $10,000
worth ot real estate that I ownod was gold tbre
yaara ago, nnd I paid thon avery cent that I
owed. Tho picture business has boon dead
since 189-t. Then, when I began to loso money,
Ikopt hoping that eomo chango would corns,
and that pooplo would begin again to buy aa
they had In the paot. But that time never
oamo, and It ueyor will, for tho kind ot
goods that I sold. Tho dealers id flno
Ealntlngs, art I its' proofs, nnd other such worlta
aye Buffered badly during Iho ten years lust
finished. Hut Ihey nro going tn fool n revival
Bhd will get nil nt tholr business back nf lor a
w,hl o. But with copies, engravings, and all
kinds or colored prints there Is no longer any
liopoof an Increase lu tho demind. Even ths
manufacturers aro suffering dreadfully, and
the dorartmont stores have taken tho business
almost entirely out of tho hands of tho small
dealers and thoy are not selling tho pictures at
prl oa which bring them nny profit. .
"I havo a storcful of pictures now which I
could not mako porsons buy nt nny prleo. Tha
other day a stock worth $8,000 was told tat
8760. Ifl could havo gotten nny price for the
pictures I havo on hand It would never hav
been nocessary for me to mnko an assignment.
"The business ot framing has declined just
u much, Thero used to be twelve men in thd
business I'owntown hore. Now there are only
two, nnd I um one of them. A lntib could make
a fortune out of tho business before 1884. I
started in 1H57, and Was wiped out In a Short
time, uy tho following year I had paid oft tujr
clouts aud started in again. In 1801 It WAS n
hard struggle, but 1 got through nil right, and
in 1878 hnd throe stores, all ot them making
rnonoy. In 1881. tho turn came. Since that
tho business in pictures has grown worso year
by year, and now It practically does not exist.
Hard times had more todo with it than apy thing
else. After the hard tlmos In tbe past business
used to pickup. Bat It docs ndt now. All there
is of the picture business the copies, prints,
nnd different kind of reproductions hat gOno to
