OAGBMENT. which contributed mostly
to her fame was that of
Browning's "In a Balcony," which Mrs
Li* Moyne, together with Otis Skinner and
Mils Eleanor Robson presented in several
of the larger eastern cities last year. She
will be seen here in a new play, written
**7 Charles Henry Meltzer, called "The
First Duohesa of Marlborough." The ma
terials lor the drama were drawn from the
varied tempestuous and remarkably inter
esting career of Sarah Jennings, one of
England's most famous women. The per
sonages, the events and the environments
of Queen Anne's day seem natural and
real, and the written narrative of them,
or their presentation in dramatic form
lias all the convincing foroe of a current
transaction. It will be recalled that
Queen Anne ruled England for about a
dozen years at the beginning of the
eighteenth century, and during that time
the most conspicuous figure at her court
was the Duchess of Marlborough. Her
husband, John Churchill, was the first
general in England, the greatest soldier
In the world at that time. The duchess
was a beautiful, brilliant, Imperious
woman, who absolutely dominated the
queen, with whom she had been on inti
terxns from the days when they were
young girle together, and who was the one
person In the kingdom who controlled her
distinguished husband. But toward the

H. R. Wellt of Preaton, Minn., has for
warded to the State Historical Society, a
rare historic relic in the shape of a
melodeon which was the property and in
use in the family of John Brown in his
life time, together with his photograph
and that of his widow. The instrument
was made in 1852 or thereabouts. In the
early sixties, after the execution of John
powerful enemies of the Churchills arose
and seriously threatened the supremacy of
the great duke and his wife. Abigail
Hill, Mrs. Masham, as she was then
known, a cousin of the duchess, and a
woman whom she herself had introduced
to the queen's notice, displayed her grat
itude for these favors by entering Into a
conspiracy with Harley, afterwards the
great Earl of Oxford and leader of the
Tory party, to effect the disgrace and de
struction of the Marlboroughs. Mr. Melt
zer, in the play he has written for Mrs.
Le Moyne, has chosen the period when
this plot was developed and it depicts ,the
dramatic incidents attending the "duch
ess's successful efforts to thwart her ene
mies and effect the recoil of their schemes
upon their own heads. The play is one of
intrigue and introduces several of the fa
mous characters of the period, among
them Dr. Swift, the author of GuJUver;
the lovable "Dick" Steele, Handel, the
young composer, who had just gone to
England to live, and others.
The action of the play is simple, direct,
but spirited, it is claimed, and the char
acter drawing bold and distinct. In the
title role Mrs. Le Moyne has a part
worthy of her superior intelligence and
fine gifts. Such well known people as
Frederick Paulding, Harold Russell, Jo
seph Wilkes, Frank A. Connor, Charles D.
Pitt, Axel Bruun, Mary E. Barker, Nora
O'Brien, Ina Brooks, Cornelia Hunter and
others will be seen in Mrs. Le Moyne'a
The melodrama, "Man's Enemy," will
be the attraction at the Bijou Christmas
week, beginning with a matinee to-mor
row afternoon at 2:30.
"MAN'S The Christmas matinee,
which will not begin until
ENEMY." 3 o'clock of that day, will
be on Wednesday. The
afternoon performances will also Include
a matinee on Saturday. The play is a
story of crime, the "Enemy" being
strong drink. The hero is a young man
Brown, which occurred Deo. 2, 1859, his
widow with two daughters and a son, the
only survivors of thirteen children, came
from their home In Essex county, New
York, to Decorah, lowa, bringing the in
strument with them. They occupied a
tenement in Decorah, the property of the
sister of Mr. Wells, Mrs. R. S. Dayton,
with whom they became friendly. ' The
widow with her children finally decided to
with an inherited appetite for strong
drink, who is lured by a hypocritical
friend, from motives of revenge, into a
career of dissipation. He falls in love
with Sarah Drake, ,the proprietor of a
gambling house and a companion of Tom
Drake, who poses as her brother. She
financially ruins Fred Lisle, another of
her victims, and then marries Harry
Stanton. Tom Drake is not only intense
ly jealous of Stanton, but harbors a feel
ing of revenge on account of a fancied
family feud, and proceeds systematically
to ruin Stanton by urging him to drink
himself to death. With a born thirst for
liquor, Stanton responds easily to the
arts and efforts of Tom Drake and be
comes a terrible drunkard. He gambles
to an extent .that he finds himself a beg
gar at Monte Carlo. A Russian count
makes love to his wife. Tom Drake, jeal
ous of the Russian and seeing a way to
put a further stigma on Stanton's char
acter, encourages him to fight a duel with
the Russian, in which fight the latter Is
killed, and but for the assistance of Isaac
Barnet, an eccentric jew, Stanton would
have been accused of murder, that being
Tom Drake's intention.
In his boyhood days Harry Stanton had
been in love with Grace Lisle, who had
grown to sympathize with him, even in
spite of the fact that his father had dis
owned him. Stanton finally leaves his
wife and attempts to make a manly fight
to reform, but Tom Drake continues his
evil machinations and at every opportun
ity poits liquor in his way ta tempt him
and causes him to lose position after posi
tion by evil designs. He is saved from
final wreck by Isaac Barnet, who takes
him in charge and helps him to get on his
feet. Tom Drake and his evil compan
ions, and the former wife of Stanton,
though hating each other, remain together
for mutual protection. Tom Drake finally
detfldea to leave her and kills her during
a quarrel that ensues between them. Har
ry Stanton, at last fights off his desire for
liquor, is forgiven by his father and wins

migrate by wagon "across the plains" to
California, and it being inconvenient to
carry the instrument with them. Mrs.
Dayton purchased and has retained pos
session of the same since that time and
until recently, when Mr. Wells purchased
It for.the society. It is no doubt a desir
able and valuable relic, to be preserved
for future ages, in view of its historic
the affections of his boyhood sweetheart.
The play contains a variety of character
that of Isaac Barnet, being one of the
most effective; a Jewish character of a
legitimate type, carried through without
burlesque or exaggeration.
The company producing "Man's Enemy"
is admitted to be one of the strongest pre
senting melodrama this season. In the
role of Sarah Drake is cast Miss Agnes
Herndon. The part is one which makes
strong demands upon the emotional talent
of the actress who essays it.
Maurice Lindner as Isaac Barnet, con
tributes one of the most artistic and en
joyable impersonations of the production.
There is an abundance of scenery used
in the four acts, including handsome pic
tures of Monte Carlo, the Gardens of the*
Casino and Blenheim Castle in England.

tumes, elaborate calcium
and wonderful mechanical effects in con
junction with the great list of players, will
be hailed with joy by every amusement
patron, and by another and different con
tingent, who only attend theaters when
such productions like "Quo Vadis" are in
order. The play purchased by F .C. Whit
ney in London some two years ago for
$50,000 has proven to be the most valuable
piece of theatrical property in the mar
ket. Even the poor piratical productions
that have continually been put before the
public have not in the slightest inter
fered with the great success which is
achieved by the Whitney and Knowles
production, the only complete and perfect

central theme of the play
deals with a love affair between her and
Vane, who although married becomes
infatuated with her, and wooes her with
commendable persistency until his wife
suddenly appears on the scene and begs
the actress to give her back her husband.
"Peg" had not suspected her lover's mar
riage and the revelation proves to be a
great shock, but she nobly rallies from
it and succeeds in reuniting the husband
and wife.
The announcement of the coming to the
Metropolitan for three nights, beginning
Dec. 26 of Henry Irving, Miss Ellen Ter
ry and the London Ly-
IRVING ceum company has awak
ened great interest among
AND theater goers and there
can •be no doubt bait that
TERRY the engagement will be
marked with the same
crowded house-3 and abundant enthusiasm
that have always attended the too rare
visits of these famous players. They are
offering us an extremely varied repertory
crowding five plays -within the limits of
their three performances. On Thursday
night there will be the double bill of
"Nance Oldfleld" and "The Bells;" on
Friday night another double bill, "Water
loo" and "Mm©. Sans Gene," the latter
play being presented for the first time
here by these artists. Irving appears in
both plays, first as Corporal Brewster and
in the second in bia remarkable character
study of Napoleon, while Miss Terry will,
of course, play Mme. Sans Gene. For the
final performance on Saturday .night "The
Merchant of Venice" will be give© with
Irving as Shylock and Miss Terry as Por
tia. There will not be any matinee. On
The performance of a Yiddish play to
morrow evening by a company of Jewish
players will be one of the theatrical nov
elties of the season which will doubtless
interest those on the lookout for a new
sensation. The play will be given at
Century Hall and should the patronage
warrant there will be other perform
The company, which is managed by
Karp & Wassertstrom, has for the prin
cipal roles players from New York, wif*»
some local players in the minor roles.
Rehearsals have been going on during
the week under the direction of H. Litin
eky, who in the play represents a woman.
The play to be given has for its scene
southern Russia and turns upon a pe
culiar Jewish marriage oustom and the
rites associated with it. These rites
give the name to the play "Chletze,"
which may be described as a peculiar
form of ecclesiastical divorce. Accord
ing to the old Jewish law, if a man died
before his wife had borne him a child,
his brother was obliged to marry her and
this obligation could only be discharged
by the peculiar form of divorce, which in
the popular belief was attendedby much
danger to the interested parties and was
a very peculiar ceremonial.
The heroine of the play is an aristocrat
ic young v.oman who is left without
frienda to protect her and is lover by a
rich man, Bernard, who is determined to
marry nor. His character is bad, how
ever, and she chooses a humbler lover,
Joseph, a cloth merchant. Bernard con
spires with Joseph's servants to kill him
while away on a journey and this is don©
to .the best of their knowledge. His
escort leaves him apparently dead in the
forest, where he is later found by an army
surgeon, who discovers tJiat life is not
quit© extinct. The surgeon cares for him
and discovers that the unfortunate man is
hi« brother. The surgeon ha* left home
years before and was believed to be dead.
Bernard, meanwhile, had found in
"chlletze" an obstacle to his schemes, for
there was etill left at home a younger
brother, David, from whom the widow
must secure a formal release before she
could marry again. During the perform
ance of the strange divorce rites, the two
brothers mourned as dead reappear, not
supernaturally but in the fleah, and bring
the vlllian to Justice.
There will be incidental music and
music between the acts by the Men
Thursday and Saturday nights the per

Chicago has a Yiddish theater at which
performances are given during the great
er part of the year. It is a pretty little
house on West Madison and Desplaines
streets, and not an inconsiderable part of
its patronage comes from those who do
not understand a word of Yiddish. The
acting, however, is admirable, for the
dramatic instinct is one that is highly
developed among Jewish people. Both
impassioned tragedy and rollicking com
edy are ably portrayed. The plays are im
ported from Russia, Germany, Poland and
London and have a fascinating foreign
style that comports well with the foreign
tongue and the appearance of the actors.
A play recently put on at the Chicago
theater, "The Wandering Jew," was a tale
of political intrigue in Poland, the Jew
being a noble patriot who was striving
by political means to bring abfcut an
amelioration of the condition of his peo
| ple. It was an odd but attractive mingling
of deepest tragedy, broad comedy, musical
numbers worthy of grand opera, and
music hall songs. These widely different
elements were not placed in violent con
trasts, but usually in separate scenes.
A chorus played an important part and
sang admirably, although the costuming at
! times provoked a smile at its makeshifts.

Emil Liebling, the greatest American pian
ist and perhaps the most versatile pianist in
the world, will be in Minneapolis for one day
and will give a piano concert in the Metro
politan theater Sunday afternoon, Jan. 12. As
a rule, world-famous pianists are a luxury
that only the rich can afford. Top prices are
always charged, and there are many people
who would like to hear'them who do not feel
that they can afford the money charged for
tickets. That will be the case in St. Paul,
where Liebling will appear previous to his
Minneapolis engagement, but chance has
made It possible for a popular concert in this
city. Mr. Liebling was en route to the Pa
cific coast with the Chicago orchestra. He
could spare a. Sunday off here, but the orches
tra could not.
A few Minneapolis men corresponded with
him for the purpose of having him give a
concert in Minneapolis. "Impossible," he
said. "There is no piano concert without an
orchestra. A recital, yes, but not a concert."
Mr. Liefoling was reminded that Minneapolis
had a great symphony orchestra. Yes, he had
heard of it, and while he never played with
local orchestras, he would be willing to trust
himself with so strong an organization as the
Danz Symphony orchestra. So that was set
tled. A guarantee was paid him, and he was
The men back of the affair agreed that since
this was to be the first piano concert, popular
prices would be in order, and they fixed the
rates at To cents for choice seats, with the
gallery at 25 cents, to give every one an op
portunity of hearing a great pianist. Mr.
biebling sent on his concertos for Mr. Danz
to rehearse, and arrangements were con
So Emll Liebling, pianist, composer, lectur
er and wit, will appear in Minneapolis at pop
ular prices, and if his audience can prevail
upon him to make a short speech he will
show that he is an entertainer In more ways
than one.
One of the most remarkable programs that
has been offered in the series of concerts
by the Danz Symphony orchestra will be
given to-morrow afternoon in the Metropoli
tan opera-house, when another change in
style will be presented by the director of this
most popular organization
The solos are something that will please
almost all lovers of music. Nothing is so
striking as a powerful bass voice, and Addi
son Madeira has selected two classical num
bers that are full of possibilities to a voice
that has sensational features. In "Golgotha"
and the selection from "Tannhauser." Mr.
Madeira takes tho most difficult music, and
the **ase with which he will sing it will not
fall to please his audience.
The program also includes a striking popu
lar march for the less tutored ears, a classic
selection from Schumann, a French waltz
with its accompanying glitter, a pretty suite
for string orchestra, which has come to be so
much a feature of these concerts, and a new
suite by German. Added to this is the "Tann-
Tt is quite certain that none of Alexis Four
nier's recent paintings will prove more in
teresting than the group of Venetian pictures,
for they mark a very interesting departure
from his landscape work with which Minne
apolis art lovers are familiar. Trees anfl
foliage which play such an important part in
his French and Ameiican subjects are almost
entirely absent from the Venetian pictures
and the same kind of feeling is put into tbe
water motives which abound. Much of the
character of all of the Venetian pictures is
given by means of the treatment of water
either as a principal thought or an important
accessory. A few of these pictures are almost
wholly sea and sky and might quite properly
be classed as marines.
The building 3 ar© not only picturesque In
detail and afford a splendid test of technical
problems but in their grouping reveal Mr
Fournier's well developed talent in composi
tion, the masses being handled in a masterly
way. Another change particularly marked in
this group is the number and importance of
the figures employed. This adds much to the
human interest of the pictures.
Venice bathed in sunlight, quivering with
heat, is Its most familiar aspect on canvas,
but H is by no means its most charming
mood. Mr. Fourniar discovered for himself
the attractions 01 early morning in the Adri
atic city and has brought back canvases that
depict its moist coolness and freshness with
fidelity. One morning scene shows a massive
stone quay along which is ranged 4n interest
ing perspective a line of sail boats, but one
of which has its sails raised. A group of
stone buildings rise gray and cold beside the
quay in the shadow, but in the distance, far
across the lagoon, a group of buildings
catches the first rays of the rising sun. Morn
ing on the Grand Canal" is full of delicate
■and beautiful color in the water and sky and
has a fine group of buildings with picturesque
domes and towers.
An odd and interesting bit of Venice thfct Is
full of cheerful suggestion is a fiesta scene.
The arches of white electric lights and
myriads of red lanterr.s cast broken reflections
in the softly lapping waters of the canal and
above the canal rises towers and roofs faintly
illumined from the lights of the canals and
This does not exbause tha list of Venetian
pictures and takes no account of an even
larger number of French landscapes In which
may be found the perfecting of the best char
acteristics of Mr. Fournier's early work an 3
a facility and confidence which have come of
measuring up with men of assured position
in the world of art. The exhibition of all
of Mr. Fournier's new pictures in JaAnary
will be a revelation to all who hare not
followed his work closely. At present the
artist is showing his pictures to those who
are interested In them, at his studio, 719 Hen
