Charles Coghlan's new version of a for
aBerlr familiar fiurons piny nod hli own par-
wk ttoipailon in tho performance tiaTO received
vv. ', kardly anything but pralso froin tho review-
; ' ALt' n, though some of tho writers have Indulged
mi their propensity to rniiko fun of things meant
Mif ; to be aerlout. 'The ltojal Uoi" and Mr.
Mi OoBblan'i acting aro excellent art, and it It bo
wmf' i aT to prove them io by means of customary
m taU that no dissent upon that point has
V (arisen. 'Whether or not tho commendablo
W qualities will, In tho abienco of sentimental In-
&. twest, recommend tho piece successfully to
9. gtnoral audiences Is a question which, let us
H atop will be answered In tho nfllrmatlvo.
B There Is one bad thins in it, however, though
Blj ot ot a noturo to damaeo Sir. Coghlan's
jB' prorjertv. He nave out tho information prior
WW to the production of his work at the Fifth Ave
I,' Bus that somo remarks which ho was going to
St. Bake about tho stouo would exclto discussion.
m And so they should. In tho gulso of a great
T actor, who In tho Dumas original was Kean,
L, . Is visited by a its go-struck girl, whom ho
0T4 advises to glvo up her Intention ot boconilng
F'JH on actress. The arguniont which ho uses
M mainly is that sho will not And it postlblo to
IB A wmatn reputable in his profession. It U not
IIP alono that sho will bo socially disfavored, but
If Also that sho will bo compelled to deserve In-
i (amy. Ho tolls her plainly that her salary at
I , 'first would not nearly pay for tho dresses sho
f would havo to wear, and that it would bo
w necessary for her to becomo tbo wanton of
ft some liberal man in order to get an engagement
HJ at all. To bo sure, tho time of tho play is 1810
W and the place London, but tho passago mcu-
B tloned is an interpolation by tho present adapt-
or, it is spoken by him with especial candor of
m manner, and naturally it is taken by tho audi-
9, cnoo as his own earnest exposition of what Is
i jrno of our theatres to-day. Now, that is a
Ml libel upon tho great majority of our actressos,
ILljA who load puro lives and w..oso morals are be-
jrond reproach. Of course, Micro is a contrast-
Hi r log minority of shatnoloss creaturos, whoso
MWf' niabonavlor Is boldly public and wno aro a
Cj alsgraca to womanhood as they aro to their
ttffi? profession. Hut Mr. Coghlan, an actor, should
JHUj not throw stones If he feols that ho Is in a
IKH, Blass house. Itathor should ho defend his pro-
Hxi lesslonol castlo against Its enemlos.
K The art of Mr. Coghlan in "The Royal Box"
M4 ! admirably brave. Ho did not draw back
jKfj when he saw, as he must have seen, that bo
mm was going Into an "independent theatre" kind.
Bv of venture That is to say, ho could not depend
jBwl atoll on the rousing of emotion In his audiences,
3 nor mako any intentional appeal for laughter,
Bw either. In caso ho met with profitable support
Bw In monoy, it would coma solely from a cool,
mA a calm, discriminate appreciation of an unoxclting
jK-f Play. Moreover, ho took a rink of ridicule in
no tbo episode mentioned in his new title. Tho
royal box as shown in this play is so much like
BKk A factor in many recent funny pieces that peo-
IPff. P' might readily be excused for a mirthful
WMf prejudice regarding it. Tho expedient has been
Hw resorted to tiuio and again In Casino ex-
B travagonzas, Lambs Club gambols, music hall
IB ; burlesques, and vaudovlUe sketches. Actors
IB i placed in tho audience to Interrupt tho stago
Bf? action have become familiarly comic. There-
Bai'k tSJ?- ther. .ns danirer that, when tho licentious
Bfr-t Prince ot Wales, the cuckold Swedish Ambas-
nyy aador, and tho sinful Countess took tholr seats
Sjp in box at tho fifth Avcnuo and assumed tbo
ud parts of interested spectators of the balcony
MJvY, scene from "itomoo and Jullot," the rest of tho
Hf,i assemblage would take It as nn amusing sight.
Bf& uut there is no such mishap. In the French and
KVi perman representations actors are not only put
fs Into a box, nut soverol arc scattered through tbo
H parquet and balcony, to hiss and gibe when tho
;J Player ot Jtomeo, frenzied by joulpusy upon see-
Big lng his mistress and his rival together, forgets
J,5 1 bis mlmlo character and delivers a denunciatory
iffii tirade ot his own. Mr. Coghlan bos sought.
'A and round safoty in an expertly conservative
.'ii treatment of tbo matter. Tbo three actors In
-- ; tbo box romain silent and'do'not become de--
1 ' tnonstratlvo even at tho climax. Indeed, tho
MMy peoplo pay little attention to them, and Mr.
JTrw Coghlan Is easily able to keep their interest
BJ1 centred upon htmsolf.
jHyi Speeches by actors before tho curtain seem
BkI taking on an interest which has hitherto
jK& been lacking. Richard Mansfield, ever alert to
UU; do surprising things, denounced Ntxon & Zlm-
Wt$ merman, in whoso Philadelphia theatre he was
1 playing, as members of tho dreadfully wicked
h Hayman "trust." Tbo ensuing actor in the
B tamo houso was Edward H. Bothern, and, when
HM an entbnslastio audlenco demanded an address
Bjfi at the conclusion of bis engagement he extolled
Biff the same Nixon ts Zimmerman as among tho
iBl't best social and business friends ho had oncoun-
Hif tered during bis eleven years ot starring, and
Br declared that the methods of the wicked "trust"
Br , were conduclvo to the highest purposes ot the
H Stage in America.
Bf-i Several actresses have picked up an idea
jBp (omewhere in thn West for a variation in the
0fK& bouquet business, and wo may expect to see It
BSp -operated hero in New York. Thoy havo bunches
(1 61 of flowers thrown to the staaro from the top pal-
I ' I lery, and, wbllo accustomed to such tokens
bW from the parquet, tbey are much astonished to
V) BM get them from aloft. They express their do-
H light by pantomlmlo kisses, and tho whole audi-
Af rnce becomes enthusiastic.
B The drama Is struggling against adversity in
H J Bait Lake City. BIx successive managements
H ' of the Lyceum Theatre failei miserably, In a
Hi business way, and then some patrons of etaste
BgR art came forward with a proposition to give
if new support, provided that a really able and
B responsible man be put in control. The son of
JS a solU bank cashier accopted the trust. At
If the end of two weeks this man, rinding that ho
H bad only 8300 with which to pay dobts of C00,
i pooketed the money and disappeared.

BsrrnxL, Mo., Deo. 23. A remonstrance
against the appointment ot tho Hon. Enoch Fos
ter of Dethel as a Jcutloe o! the Supremo Court
of Maine was sont yesterday to Gov. Powers.
Judge Poster has occupied a seat on tho Su
preme bench fourtocn years and has been mak
ing an active canvass torn reappointment at
tho expiration of his present term, which will
end eorly In 1808,
Tho opposition to him comes not from mem
bers of tho bar, but from tho Malno Woman's
Christian Tompcranca Union, whose wrltton
remonstrance, sent to the Governor to-dny,
charges Judge Foster with immoral conduct,
Tho allegation, in tho form of a resolution, is:
"Jfcsolrnf, That v,hllo endoavorlng to exor
cise great caro not to do lnjustlco to tho charac
ter or roputatlon of any publlo ofllccr by any
hasty or ill-conslderod uttornnccs, nevertheless,
after careful deliberation wo are forced to tho
painful conclusion based upon reliable ovl
donce, voluntarily brought to our attention,
that tho conduct of Judgo Enoch Fostor of tho
Supremo Judicial Court of tho Stato of Maine
has been, and In splta ot tbo warnings of
friends and expulsion from tho church, still con
tinues to be so'rrossly Immoral and notoriously
seandalous aa to demand the most emphatic
publlo remonstrance from all thoughtful and
responsible clt lions against his reappointment,
and thnt a copy of this resolution bo sent to Gov.
l'owors as an expression of our convictions and
remonstranoo In this matter."
The women havo not gono Into this matter
blindly. Thoy havo consulted w oil-informed
attornoys and been advised that their tour so
of action is tenablo. A commltteo of the women
camo hero a tow days ago and investigated a
church episode in which Judgo Foster llgured
conspicuously. They coplod from tho records
ot tho Uothol Congregational Church state
ments showing that in tho early part ot 18110
the Judgo was criticised by members of tho
ohurch for his association with n certain young
woman and for spondlng tlmo in her home ;!t hat
ho voluntarily promised to make publlo con
fession to the church, did mnko such confession,
and promised to abstain from tho companion
ship of tho young woman; that it few months
later ho resumed bis relations wtth her, on one
occasion was socn In her compnny at a hotel In
Portland; that he was summoned to appear bo
foro thn.aburuh to answer to charged of "nor
torjout conduct ot a most scandalous nnturo,"
nnd. falling to appear, thnt ho was expelled
from ohurch membership by a unanimous voto.
A copy ot those records, signed by tho Rov.
iBracl Jordan, tho pastor; J. N. Purlngton. tho
Church clerk, nnd Deacon K. V. Woonburv,
was forwarded to tho Governor with tho ro.
monstrance. The latter document wnx signed
by tho twenty-ono Stato and county ofllcers of

Bias st ssacy, Never Leut Illn SIO.OOO,
At a final hearing In tho contest ot tho will of
Mrs. Mary Johnson, who left hor largo estate
mostly to Catholic institutions and whose will
is contestod by several of her cousins, Father
James W. Power, pastor of All Saints' Roman
Cathollo Church and a legatee under the will,
was on tho wltnoss stand for n short tlmo yes
terday. Father Powor said that he has been a
priest twenty-five years and has been con
nected with this church eighteen years. Ho
had known Mrs. Johnson fourteen years before
her death last March.
"Did you ever havo a loan of 910,000 from
Mrs. Johnson!" he was asked.
"Never," bo answered before Lawyer David
McClure, attorney for the contestants, could
get a ruling on an objection, on tho around that
the witness Is inteicsted iu the will and cannot
testify to transactions wtth the deceased. The
quostion was ruled out. as was tho next, ns to
whether his church had not got a loan ot 93,000
from her. But he answered beforo tbo ruling
that tho church had got such a loan. On cross
examination by Mr. McClure ho was asked:
Q. You say you hold your office as priest of
that cburoh at the will ot your Bishop. You
wouldn't bo removod without cause, would youl
A. No.
Q. Your BishoD is tho kind who wouldn't re
move without cause, isn't hot A. Yes. That
kind.
Q, Wouldn't you object if you woro sud

I would be glad, of lt. .
Q. Havp, you haodsomo ..altars . in jour

and his sister, Mrs. Johnson.
Q.-What was the debt on your chrch in 18011
A About $174,000.
Q. What is lt cowl A. Between 9150,000

Una Is 11111 I'itnff the Same Blanr, anil Her
Counsel Bais It's Her Rlsbt.
Fredcrio N. Blanc wants to have his former
wife, Elizabeth, who appears on the stage as
"Baroness Blanc," punished for using his sur
name contrary to an injunction against Its
usa in tho decree of dtvorco ho got against her.
Blano sot the divorce from her in 1803. While
sbo was appearing In a theatre as "Baroness
Blano" last May Blano moved to punish her
for contempt, and Justice Russell decided that
sho had violated tho provision of tho decree,
and fined her 950. The bills now announce her
aa "formerly Baroness Blano," the "formerly"
being in microscopic print, while tho "Baroness
Blano" can be read across the street.
In moving beforo Justice Beekman of the
Supreme Court to punish her, Blanc's counsel
said yesterday that fining her would do no
good, and that she should be sont to Jail.
Her counsel, Theodora Caso of Chicago,
urged that the court bad no right to prohibit
her from using the name of Blanc. She could
use anv surname that she chose, ho "aid, and
even the name of tho Judge. Tlioro was no
provision in the statutes ot this State against
a person taking any name, and so the common
law would prevail.
David Oerber, In bebalf ot Blanc, said that
the ltdy bad been exhibiting herself In tights
under the namo of her former husband. Ho
urged that the court was bound by the previ
ous decision of Justice Russell upholding this
firovlslon of the decreo of divorce, and holding
hat the provision as good In law.
Mr. Chase contonded that the matter camo
un anew, nnd that tho court should not Im
prison a woman whoro tho authorities ore clear
that sho can use tho name of lllnnc. Decision
was reserved.

antlj Than Mr Bat the Bays Prevail,
Tho office employees, from one end of the
Dolawaro and Lackawanna Railroad to ths
other, were very much Interested in tho out
come of a llttlo coremony that was scheduled to
take placo in tho offico of tho Prosldont of tho
road, Samuel Sloan, at 11 o'clock yesterday
morning. Months ago somo of tho clerical foroe
of tho rood recalled that on Christmas Day Mr.
Sloan mould bo 80 years old. Thoy thought It
would bo a gracoful act on the part of all tho
ofllco employees ot tho road it thoy should club
togcthor and buy Mr. Sloan n birthday and
Christmas present. Tho idea took, and this
commlttoe was appointed to decide upon what
form tho gift should toko, to collect subscrip
tions and to mako tho presentation: II, 0. Hicks,
bend of tho freight department. Chairman; W.
F. Holwlll, J, U. Marston. A. H. Schwarx, 8. B,
Foley, A. C Salsbury, A, 11. Storri, G. E. Zip
pel and G, A. H olden, son of the Vice-President
of tho road, Edwin R. Uoldon. Young Mr.
Holdcn was treasurer,
Tho commlttoo decided to'get a solld'gold tea
service ot seven pieces on a solid gold tray.
Tiffany & Co. took tho commission for tho work.
It was completed on Monday nnd VJoo-Presl-dent
Uoldon was chosen to make tho presenta
tion yesterday.
Thcso details having been arranged, lt was
thought best not to tako the vonorablo Presi
dent entirely by surprise so his son, Samuel
Sloan, Jr., was nskod to Inform his father on
Wodncsday night that tho presentation was to
tako placo next morning. Young Mr. Sloan did
ns requested and ho wus quite taken aback by
his father's reception ot tho news. The old
gentleman said:
"What do they want to give mo a present
fori l'vo done nothing to deserve anything
llko this. It I had tliero would bo somo sonso
In tho thing. They can't afford to do this. I
don't wont IN and, what's more, you can go
back and tell those who sent you here that I
won't accept lt."
This was a stunner, and young Mr. Sloan
concluded to let bis fathor sleop over tho mat
ter and tackle him again before bo went down
town yesterday morning. A night's rest had
made no difference in Mr. Sloan's determina
tion not to accept tho gift. Finding this out.
the son consulted Mr. Holden. Tho Vice-President
said he'd fix lt all right, and immediately
repaired to ths President's office. But Mr.
Holdcn couldn't fix it. He labored a long tlmo
with Mr. Sloan, but tho latter wouldn't bo talked
Into receiving tbo prosent.
Coming out of tbo President's office, Mr.
Holden tailed the committee together an I told
them what Mr. Sloan hod said. The commltteo
didn't know v. but to do. Finally soma ono
suggested that when Mr. Sloan went out to
luncheon tbo servico be carried Into his offico
and set upon his desk with a card tolling tho
purpose of the present and from whom lt came.
"That won't do," one of tho commltteo is
quoted aa Baying. "Vou enn't drive tho old
man an Inch, nnd he'1 Just send it back."
Sonubody else suggested that tho servico bo
rent to Mr. Sloan a homo. This was also
thought inadvisable, and at length it was de
cided to let tho matter rest for a tew hours.
Mr. Holden promised to see Sir. Sloan again in
the mean time. He did so. One or two other
officers of tho company put in a word, and
finally Mr. Sloan was prevailed upon to accopt
tbo gift. The presentation took placo In his
offico at 3 o'clock, Mr. Holden making tho pre
sentation speech. Mr. Sloan tried to reply,
but a frog In his throat, or something else,
inado It lmnosslblo for him to say much mora
than "Thank you."
After tbo presentation had been made it was
learned that tho real reason for Mr. Sloan s ob
jection to accepting tho gift was that bo felt
that tho majority of those who had contributed
to lt could ill afford to do so. He is quoted as
saving:
"I havo been told that this precent cost thou
sands of dollars. That Is all very well, but
whllo the acceptance ot it would mako this the
most memorable Christmas and birthday of my
life, th i wives or mothers or sisters of somo of
my boys mny havo to go without their Christ
mas that thoso boys might glvo mo mino.
That'a all wrong, and I won't havo It."
The service Included, besides the tray, a cof
fee pot, a teapot, a chocolate pot, a oream
pitcher, a- sugar bowl, and a spoonholder.
All tho plocca wcro in an antique oak caso
about four foot long and three feet high. The;
service cost a llttlo more than 810,000.

Anna, wife of Frank 3. McCarthy says he was
insano when sho married him at Princeton, N,
J., in 1881, and she asked Justice Stover in tho
Buprcme Court yesterday to annul the marriage.
McCarthy was sexton of the Episcopal Church nt
Princeton, and was much older than sho.
They lived together eight years. McCarthy is
now in the Trenton Asylum. His wlfo tcstlflod
that sbo had known blm only three months be
fore tho marriage, and had not seen blm often.
She was suspicious about bis mental condition
on the wedding day, she said, but sbo thought
that perhaps ho had been drinking. Ho was
about halt an hour late for the oeremony, which
was solemnized beforo a largo assembly in the
church, and when ho did come he was pale and
his features had a peculiar look. She was
asked:
Q. Did bo glvo you any excuse for his late
ness I A. Yes. sir. He said thnt be had gono
home to get ready and was cleaning ud bis
room when tho carrlago drove up to tako blm to
the church.
Q. Did anything happen at tho tlmo of tho
wedding In the church I A. As wo wore going

Dark noard Consulting Baslaeera Plan a Mar
ginal Way and Subway.
The Board of Consulting Engineers, Gcorgo
8. Morlson, 'William If. Ilurr, and Oen. Wil
liam V. Cralgblll, has made a report to tho
Dock Hoard favoring the Improvement ot the
East River water front. The plan accompany
ing the report contemplates (he laying out of
a marginal way 200 feet wldo along tho bulk
head as far north as Jackson street at Coi
lear's Hook Park. From this point two car
tracks aro carried along Jackson street to
a subway beginning at Cherry street, from
which point the subway is planned to pass under
Jackson streot and Cannon street to Houston
street, and thenco across to tho Intersection of
Lewis and Third streets, where the subway
ends, the tracks rising to tbo surface at Hlxtn
streot. From this point the marginal way,
140 feet wide, follows Lewis street us far as
Eightn streot and tbo line of Avenuo D above
Tenth street. Along the easterly side of this
way aro laid four tracks, which may be con
nected by switches vlth tbo adjoining prop
erty between it and the river front. This mar
ginal way, 140 feet wide, with its four traoks,
may bo locator! above Hunt Tenth street as far
as East Twenty-third street, so as to lenvo a
strip of ground about 600 feot wide between
it and tho bulkhead for warehouse purtiosos.
This general plan, the report says, must be de
veloped and adjusted, as fur as the location
of tho marginal way abovo Third street Is con
cerned. so aa best to serve such wanhouso or
other lntero.t as may deslro to improvo tho
business opportunities offered.
The present Dock Board Is favorably dis
posed toward the Improvement suggested, but
as Its oftlclal llfo ends on Jan. 1, no effort con
bo mado to carry lt out.

Are Resnn thn Interest Camas ta Band,
Tas temporal affairs of St. Loo's Ohurch, of
which tho Rev. Thomas J. Dueey is thryector,
aro not flourishing. A reason for thlswas
glvon yesterday by a woll-known banker, who is
familiar with tho affairs ot the church. Ho
said:
"Tho whole trouble with Bt, Leo's is that
Father Ducoy Insists upon doing too much
work. Ho is trylng-.to do what would keep halt
a dozen men busy, Uo wants to preach an(
hear tho confessions, marry and bury tbo mem
bers of his congregation and attend to tho
flnanclaUaffalrs of the church ns well. Now this
is more than any ono man can do well. lis
may bo able to perform tho functions of a priest,
but ho can't, at the same time, do tho work of
an expert accountant. In trying to do both
tbe fathor hasn't Jbeen able to make both onds
meet.
"Tho Bowery Savings Bank holds amort
gage on tho church. It's a fairly heavy mort
gage, hut an excellent one for the bank to carry.
Tho interest on this mortgago is payable on tho
1st ot February and tho 1st of August ot each
year. It Is soma tlmo since tho interest waa
paid when lt was due. That doesn't bother tho
bank peoplo much. They're used to lt now,
and, tosldcs, they know tbo property is easily
worth more than the face of the mortgage. The
Interest due last August was paid only a short
time ago and then only after forecloauro pro
ceedings had been begun.
"You see, it's this way: Tho day for tho pay
ment of tho lntorost comes around, but tbe in
terest doesn't coroo. Then the bank folks wrtto
Fathor Ducey a letter a fairly sharp one -In
which he is told that the Interest must bo paid
by a certain date. By way of reply tho Fathor
ends a delightful letter to the bank oftlolals.
Ho regrets that the Interest wasn't paid when
due, expects to boablo to pay lt shortly and
winds up by sending his blessing.
"It Is often necessary to send two or three let
ters to Father Ducoy. That was necessary, for
instance, after last August's interest wus not
Bald. The father promised and' promised, but
io Interest didn't come, so. finally, forecloauro
proceedings wero begun. Then tho interest was
paid and tbo proceedings wero stooped. Tho
bank really doesn't want the principal, but it
inrlsts that tho interest shall be paid. Tho in
terest will be duo aguln in about a month, and lt
may bo that tho bank will have to go through
tbo same procedure again. Howovcr, as I said
before, they don't mind that sort ot thing much
noiv. They'vo got used to lt and thoy always
?ot the Interest In the end. St. Leo's In one of tho
aslilonablo Cathollo churches of tho city, and
many of its congregation a-a wealthy. Thcro
would probably be no difficulty .ibout the
finances If Father Ducoy would onlj let them
bo attended to by some of his flock who know
about finances."

was paid Into Lawyer Jeremiah Ticrnoy, tbo
administrator on tho estate, two weeks ago,
and as Mrs. Yesson showed no disposition to

Kenealy, Mrs. Yessen's counsel, $1,000, but
when he gavo her bis check for 9850. deduct
