McHuiro of this city, nUrod on view nt the Anderson Art Gal lrie pre fatory to their sale there on the eieninRof Tuesday, Ootober 29. It does not take a long memory to recall Cameron's entrance upon the field aa a paliitr-etcher of high promise. Then, as now, the man's national character spoke troncly through his work. Sir Frederick Medinore has 'pronounced Cameron, whorr.e he admires greatly, to bo a littlo prim, a disciple of austerity. He does not" rim to sketches, to light memoranda of uitiK phases of nature. When ho chooses a subject it, is attacked conscientiously and thoroughly worked out Tlio wine of comedy does not flow in his veins; like another Scot, of whom Max O'Rell liked to write, he finds it fery (!efieult to be wutty on Apolllnarls water " So, as Wedrhore and others have tainted out, Mr. Cameron prefers archi tectural subjects for his etched plates, end in these he. rarely gives much Import ance to the human figures that ho utilizes now and again as elements in the com position. Hut there 1 no quarrel to be made with Mr Cameron because his point of view is a ferious one. Ho is not wanting in an appreciation of romance. One feels that the literary sido of his art, the side that h;i to do with apprehension of the pos ubilities of a subject, has been keenly and well developed. When he nets down what he sees of tome old chateau or dungeon of Tou rainc it is quite evident that he 6eos not merely the architectural beauty or as piration, ho also hints at more, and he leenrds his impressions as one under the suell of tho storied past that haunts most of these singularly aristocratic cbi'des of France's great folk of four centuries ago. In his 'deep shadows there is now a suggestion of something withheld, now of a deliberate subduing of the effect i'f the plate as a whole, to gain a fuller communication of the sense of mystery and s"rrecy. It irt not so long, as already said, since this Edinburgh etcher began to count Inr something in the world, nut he is the subject of an exhaustive biography, with a detailed study of every plate, by Frank Hinder, lately published by Glas gow University. And it would bo hard to find a good print seller's gallery lack ing in examples of his work, while .most of the public collections in Britain boast Hecimens of.it. This etcher is further represented in such widely scattered museums as those of Sydney and Perth, Australia; and of Berlin, Vienna, Ham burg, Dresden, Budapest and several American print rooms. Moreover, Mr. Cameron is canny as well as an artist; ho limits tho number of his impressions to such as can be drawn from the plate to his full satisfaction. He thus ob tains representative prints and avoids flooding tho market. And so he is ons of tho living affirmatives to the ques tion: Does: elchlng pay? Of the exhibition in the Hahlo Gallery, with its array of subjects ranging from thy Clyde to the Adriatic, from Bruges in P.iriu fmm Ben Ledi to Harfleur. it is enough to say that it represents well several phases of Cameron's fertile brain and active nana, ine quality m lu found in such a olate as that Dor- irnvini this is tlio suitable word the leak (liar to Scotchmen, Ben Iedi, sets one to mil King mental comparisons in it wiili fumiliar nalntlncs an to their relative luminosity, and not to Cameron's dlad vantage. In the popular "St. Mark's, enice. No. 2" one notes anew his skil ful maintenance of the sonle of the vast intnrinr hv the showine of the throne (if diminutive figures on the floor of the n.i ve fur below tho great rose window. i'h M)tie of majestio size and tremendous space is tlioreoy ennanoea. .main, nn can lie a uevoiee o urcni ' lectnral detail in such a plate as "Old St Ktiennt', with its rich portal; here lie piibses on a Bhare of his own quiet appreciation to the observer. Once more one returns to the Scotch work, to the dnoneiHte. Tolliooth, KdinburgB," and to others that meant home to Uie artist Mid an extra touch of sentiment on that acinunt. Leaving Cameron, and passing to the Widen-on Art Galleries, it is a .miscel laneous gathering of prints that Mr. Miiiite's collection has yielded to the liviKidtitig process of the auction room. i ibraixlt and Whistler ore represented, and ho is Meryon, tho muster interpreter of Pans ,ind an artist of whose company, its one gets it through his prints, it is not env to tire.

NO SUFFRAGE FEATURES IN ' WOMEN'S CLUB MEETING Federation Discusses Only Civic and Home Matters at 20th Gathering. The twenty-nlntlfconventlon of the New York City Federation of Women's Clubs, which was held all day yesterday In the ballroom of the Hotel Astor, had none of the features that have marked former gatherlngsvf the organization. There was the usual discussion of matters pertaining to child welfare, publlo health, street cleaning, fire prevention and pure milk. There were speeches on municipal markets and modern methods of philan thropy and the Civic Centre took the place of the customary arguments on woman suffrage. There was an echo of the old war of words on "equal pay for equal work" In the pass ing or a resolution urging the Board of Education to appoint women to fill the vacancies which occur from time-to time In the board of district superintendents until there ars an equal number of men and women superintendents. "We learned with regret," said Mrs. John Francis Yawger, chairman of the reso lutions committee, "that a man had been appointed to fill the place which the late .lulls nichman had held for a number of years. Now we believe that the careful supervising of the work of the girls and the women teachers by women of education and refinement is quits as essential as the superintendence of boys and men teachers by men of ability. It must be remembered that there are mure airls than bora in the schools." 1'he Kev. Anne Allbach of Brooklyn was enthusiastically applauded when she said mat uie average American lamiiy was in a more or less unsettled condition, all on account of the servant problem. "My Idea Is that It would be a noble enter prise," she said, "to start a training school for such helpers." Other speakers were George W. Hebberd, secretary of the State Board of Charities; .Miss ltachel Crothers, Mrs. North McLean, Cyrus (;. Miller, William I). Brush, Madame von Klenuer and Mrs. A. M. Palmer. Among the guests were Mrs. Martin Littleton, Miss Mary Uarrett .Hay. Mrs. William Tod llejmuth, the Kev. Christian I,, ltelsner and Mrs. Fiederlck Nathan. Mrs. William Orant Brown presided.

Ilartelstone alleged that he wrote the play In Kntrlish and engaged an l.ast Side play wrieht to translate It Into Yiddish. Before he could produce tlio play he saw It ad. vertlFed In tho rival theatre witn tna trans lator as the. author.

On the nnllioilty of th manscer. through a third person, the Hiding Is idyllic. Mho le fus to marry either. This is 'Tits I'olnt of View," by Jules I'rKert Cioodmaii, which W. A. Ilrady pro duced yHslerdii" afternoon at the Korty- elghth Street 'I heatre. where tho play Is to lie aded at a series of matinees ' Tlie drama Is in four acts and, stronger on Its purely technical side than in the matter of loglo and -woiMly experience. .Mr. (oodman has built up In both the sec ond nnd third acts two interesting scenes, Tim bonst of the herolno ot tho close of tho third act that she has lived with other men Is not efl'ertlve because It Is obviously not true. Is sn expedlsnt to end tho act and Is, mnreoter, against the wishes of the audiences, who do not deslro to see this girl for whom It feels a deepi sympathy called sinful even by herself, Hut there is an altogether moving scene when to the rooms of the heroine comes not the lover she Is exacting, but the se ducer, whose sleter is unknown to him, unite ignorant of the truth that it was her brother who ruined tho girt sue nas tried to bring back to the world. Then the meeting between the herolno and the man w;ho had deserted her was adroitly arranged In the second act. no has returned from a trjp to Aiken and enters his sister's rooms when she Is away. The elrl is seated at the piano and it Is not until vheeheara a nolfe and turns that thn two rorognln one another. . Miss Stevens's simple and poignant acting of this scene nobly emphasized the emotional (ores .which th author had put into It, and her acting was the really dis tinguished achievement of the afternoon. When she told the story of her disgrace, the birth and death of her child and her grief, she held the audience In her grip. Her power in such scenes of emotion is irresistible. Again in the discussion of her story with her betrayer and his sister, she acted with exquisite simplicity of symbols and the most appealing naturalness. There was no sound of tho theatre In her tones, no look of It in her face. Again the audience fell altogether under the sway of this natural power and her skill. It Is by no means mature, Miss Stevens is still lacking in polish, Occasionally she seems to lose comploto control of her facul ties, as mIib did In the last scene of the third net, when neither in speech nor gesture was tho slffnltlcancB of her acting clear. i:erythlng seemed to be sacrificed to extreme nervous intensity. A more experienced actress in such situ ations would not have confused here the spirit of her scene. It should not be thought, however, that her acting was not uncom monly flno and moving throughout the play. Its like when nt Its best has not been supplied by any other actress this season. -" Mr. Goodman Is, like Miss Sterena, still somewhat short of the highest polish. It muy not be known how high a finish he Is capable of receiving, but there were moments yesterday afternoon when the grain seemed coarse. 1 he humor of the play consisted of some smart slang and a scene In which an old maid drank too,murli tea nnd acted as if intoxicated by alcohol. This bore about as much relation to tho situation as if she hud walked to tho footlights and recited "Casey at the Hat." 'ihen the servants mingled with the family unito us they did in "Mother," which v.-fls fucIi a truthful plcturo of New Vorl lile that the head of an aristocratic family made pies in the drawing room ami cut out her children's frocks there. About the same faithful reproduction of Now York bocial luihlts was noticeable yesterday in "The Point of View."
