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

Mid an extra touch of sentiment on that
acinunt.

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.

Two girls come from Syracuse to study
singing. One of them Is deceived by the
worthless son of a Xew York family of
position Hit sister, who U trying by her
charities to remove tho taint from her
father's cold, finds the young womnn In
her hospital rounds nud takes her home to
recover.
ThU woman's lirother was tho seducer.
Ill victim Ipiinis that when she is left alone
In the apartments of her friend and t,hl-i
brother comes to vMt liii ui'ter. Ho hud
not even told l.er his real name, so there was
no suspicion that lfj was related to her
benefactor.
She reTuses h ofler of msrrlaee liecause
he will irive her. his name only from a sense
of. clot . When she Is hidden away In a
lodnlnc lioime her !oer from home comes
to liei: her to accept him. Ho is indifferent
as to her adventure except liom his desire
FO inero is a (irainniio monieni v.neii uie
gin s room comes to nom uie neroine, ner
first lover, the man who seduced her nnd
the girl herself.
In order to prevent n fleht between the
t"vo meniir.d'rld herself of the man who once
deserted hr, but Is now nnxlotisto make hrr
his wife, she declares that there were other
men mid Hint tliey need not feel mi much
syniiutliy for her. She takes bark this lie h
minute later and fnlla in tlio arms of the
lover ficni SyrariiHo,
Hut she iloeH not marry him, however.
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." Mr.
tioodman possesses, however, a certain
faculty for making nn effective scene, and
In a milieu of which he has some knowledge
ho oiiKlit to lc a siiccccsful dramatist.

. . . ,,,

Keno as the inplrntlon of the, educated
and high minded woman of tho world who

ooiitnnn must ve young.
I.ucllo Watson played with distinction1
nnd a delightful senms of humor this grate
ful part of the good sister, Madge Kennedy
spoke her slim? i l u wav that pleased the
a'idleme. William Morris's opportunities
vtri few and (irate tirlswold made her
extraneous scene of intoxication enter-
tuliilm:.
lluward l'.Ktabronk did not have an easy
task to win the favor of the audience for
the young brother. He covered his worst
uoliits. however, bv his own attractive
neiKimnlltv and his iictinir was intelligent
and KlralKhtlortviiid.
He was supposed to De a smart young
