Hut the antagonism had horn Incited bv jealous IMidon actors to drive out tho American com pauy. Hut tho extravaganza has entered upon a tcennd year at that sumo theatre The Playgoers' Club of Iloston Is dead af ter two years of lira, which began robustly but waned to etplrlni foebloness. Its mission wns to decide upon the merits of produced plays, so that less cltted people might know whether to seek or shun them. It was soon found In practice, however, that tho club's opinion did not provall. On tho contrary, vicious pieces itemed to gain through its condemnation, and good ones wnro not helped br Its approval. Next It let Itself down from Its loftr purpose to the adulatory entertainment ot actors. Whllo "A Lady of Quality" was being per formed In Baltimore, a fashionable party In the audience talked so loudly that attontlon was distracted from the play. Julia Arthur had the curtain lowered. "Miss Arthur bees me to say," the stage managor explained, "that unless she can have the attention of the entire audience tho nlay cannot co on." There was applause from nil save tho abashed of fenders, and tho net Inn wns resumed. What threatened to prevent a performance at Grand Island, Neb., turned out to bo a god send. A snowstorm delnyod a train, nnd three members ot Daniel Sully's company tele, craphed that thoy had missed a connection. Tho manager roplied "Come on a handcar." So they mndo a' trip of nineteen miles, and mleht havo frozen to death but for the violent exercise at the cranks. Upon their arrival a Brent crowd was In waiting, nnd a hand of music escorted them to the theatre, which. lu suite of bad weather, wns pac'sod with people whom a shrewd exploitation of tho affair had served to gather. The next comlo opera for Alice Nlolson will hao musio by Victor Herbert, prose by Stan islaus Stance and vorsos by Harry I). Smith. William Uillette Is at work again on a Sher lock Uolmes drama, in which he Is to enact the detective oltlcer. Uronson Howard and liran der Mathews are well nlong In n comedy for William H. Crane. I)ald J)lasco has com pleted tho next piece for Mrs Carter, but It will not be brought out for a your or more. Clyde Fitch has written "The Courtship of Harbara Froltehio" for Julia Marlowe and ""The Lady and the Cowboy" for N. C. Oood wln. Vlctorlen biirdou tins tlnlshcd all but the last act of "Robespierre" for Henry Irvine. Henry Arthur .lonos's now drama for Deer bohm Treo is military In chnrncter and East Jndian in scenes. Arthur linero's piece for ohn Hnro Is entitled "The Ony Lord (Juox." Sarah Bernhardt has taken her thentro In Paris lor twenty years and evidently looks for ward to a lone period ot activity on tho stage. When eho appeared In "La Tosca" tho other night It was for tho H2."jtli tlmo of the rOlo. The author of "Martha" withdrew It because It was not llkoly.to bo acted soon. He ex plained that ho took It not from the nctross. but trotn the manngnr. Mme. Bernhardt Is soon to revive Octave Koulllot's "Dallla" which was. acted first in 1KV7 nt the Vaudovillo and In 1H70 taken into tho repertoire ot the Comd dls rrsnenise.

Only ono or two stones remain from the old well head. It was thoro that the actors washed their faces after tho poforrm nnco. The theatre near It was that to which MoliOro took his company rathurtban disband It. Julia Nellson nnd Frederick Torry are soon to appear In "Chance Alloy," which has been rowiltton a process of which It certainly stood In need. Later thetwo actors will appear In "Mistress Uwynne." foundod on episodes lu Nell Owynno'h llfo. John Hare Is to revive a otie.aet play written some years ngo by Jleor , bohni Treo. Mr. and Mrs. Kendal linvo n play i"illii "Tho l'overty of Itlches." written for thm by the two nctors who nie tho authors of "Tho l'.lderMIss Honson." which they will use next season in this country. Auuiihtln Daly has bought tor this country Taul Herv lev's "The Law for Men" and Kleo nnra liuso will paly it in Italy. It hns tho sub ject of dlvorco and the uneutinl force of the social laws for men and women as the theme. OITenbnch Is not for this generation. Any lody who doubted that after "J.n llelle Helena" at tho Casino could be convinced this week nt the American. "Tho Orand Duchess" Is tho current'upera there, Whllo Offenbaeh niny be Impossible to-day, it Is not so certain that some such forms of his opera as thoso preva lent from time to time may not bo mndo Into moderately attractive entertainments. Hut they cannot bo called Offenbach's ojiorss on that account. They are mndo tho merest peg on whloh to hnng other familiar features that have proved their utility In previous produc tions of a similar chnrncter. If Louis Harri son's poker jokes In the version he made of "La Belle Hclene" hnd".been n little bettor, tho French original would never have Interfered with the success of the opera either from the participation ct tho composer or the librettist.

Mr, Hugo Heluz, n German bnrltono whose homo Is In London, made his llrst appearance lu Now York In a song rocltal yesterday at Mendelssohn Hall, Tho general effect produced by his singing Is agreeable but his volco Is not romarkablo for uncommon beauty nor for extraordinary rnngo or power. Mr. Hotnz has a serious manner: ho exhibits no sonse of humor, nnd In no song did ho show that ho can appreciate the lighter moods of a composer. Thoro Is llttlo variety ot ex pression In his singing; no very deep sympa thy with n writer's Inner meaning, nnd never nny abandon. Mr. Holnz's enunciation is olenr, but his intonntlon is not always perfect. Mr. Frederick l'eachey, who oame to America with tho soloist, played the piano accompani ments.
