Mr. Mansfield has probably appeared In
St. Louis .in spectacles more diverting
-than "Ivan the Terrible," but never has he.
done for us a thing in which his own per-
st-nal strength showed ltlt forth as It
doe's, in this "old play of an old Russian
subject. .Mr. Mansfield has long held a
place In the minds of the dUcernlng as
the possessor of one of the best voices
that the" American stage his ever known.
As Ivan he uses this voice to the full a
great, rich.-, moving instrument, that
brings conviction out of- the comedy of
the old absolutist's babbling dotage. -
It is the one true, earnest note of the
play: the. thing that Impresses from the
start, the thing that brings one to shudder
at the end.
And. when I speak, of a shudder, don't let
me xun forward with the notion that 'Ivan
the Terrible" is a nlnv for eaA -ill!. It
"might' be so if one were not so far re-
movea rrom una ana place, but the
speeches that tell of death, to thousands,
of boiling oil for this one and ravening
wolves for that como with suoh matter-of-factness
that they, do not move the fash
ionable audience to tears.
j. cere is mucn or this, nut there is more
roior ana ugm ana atmospnere so
much, that but- tor the crating of tragedy
and the solemn end of Ivan one might be
moved to speak of the play as a comedy.
The genius of acting now' nhds-rating in
the actor's reliability with-his public The
audience prefers a delivery, of the general
goods to the strut and rant of other times
than these. I have heard of men who'
drank bottle deep five days in the. week
and paraded to .the delight of willing audi
ence on two.
. -Now there .must" be regularity, equip
ment, the tendency that "studies to
please," the yearly offering of a novelty
sometimes two. ' -
That is genius in these good times.1.
Mr. Mansfield has It. He does not play
upon a public patience, and a public love
for him.
He is ever present with his novelty
sometimes he has more than one in ' a
year. There may be actors who have
more gentleness in their manners, more
lines of beauty in their figures; men who
can make love In sweeter tones than this
Mansfield can, men who move the matinee
to sudden, tear; but. there is not one" who
brings to his devoted people a greater an
nual offering for the ever-ready dollar.
He brings good study, rich Investiture In
good taste, players of name, fame and
capability the ' two first not neces
sarily companions of the third quality
and ho brings his own most impressive
self. Not long ago Mr. Mansfield de
manded of a friend: "They speak Of my
mannerisms what are they? Tell me,
that I may correct them."
But he must not be told, for to correct
them would be a sad, bad business' for
this eminent, player.
Mansfield's, mannerisms are ..well a part
of the performance he sells 'to us each
year,' just as his great voice' andv his
studious offerings of men and costumes,
and music and painted stuff-are in part a
fulfillment of his argreement with the pub
lic ., .
"Ivan the Terrible" is equal- to the
Mansfield promise. It is novel. It has the
new Interest- that comes, with tbe'passlng
of an important event the -current .war
In the East.
Of course, the Russia of Ivan' and the'
Russia of to-day are different affairs, but
both are Russia, and both are splendidly
despotic., i ,-.-..

Crane Brothers and Adelaide Herrmann

la a partial report made yesterday to
Judge -McDonald, the April Grand Jury
returned Indictments against Police Ser
geants Patrick J. Kirk, Harry Dorsey and
John Barry and Patrolmen S. W. Woods,
Timothy Flynn, Maurice" Devlne, . Fred
Kraeme'r. Frank Nally, John -Mohr, Wil
liam A. Dillon and Timothy Sullivan. Oth
ers indicted were John J. Lavln, Timothy
Lavin and .James Holmes.
These Indictments are to take the place"
of pending Indictments, which win be
dropped. These Indictments are drawn to
avoid the technicality on which the former
indictments were declared defective.
The old Indictments did not state that
the voters who were Interfered with were
registered and qualified voters.' The new
indictments set forth these facts.
The patrolmen are now charged with
"willful neglect of duty,"- whereas In the
former Indictments the word "willful" was
left out. All persons Indicted will be ar
raigned, to-day in the Court Of Criminal
Correction. .

Architect for Swedish Pavilion Has
Mrsteriou Concession on' Pike.
Gustaf Ferdinand Boberg, architect of
"the Swedish National Pavlllcn. visited the
World's Fair yesterday. Mr. Boberg was
director of the Works at the Stockholm
Exposition and is considered Sweden's
greatest architect. He has-been-decorated
by the King and has been, honored in
many ways.
Mr. Boberg holds the concession for the
Gtallstlcum. a Pike attraction the nature
of which has been Bhrouded In deepest
mystery. The Swedish architect, ' in .ex
plaining his attraction, says that It' Is a
machine that illustrates statistical data
graphically. "For Instance," .said Mr. Bo
berg; "If 70.000.000 babies are born each'
year this would mean two per minute. The
Statlstlcum will picture to the spectator
two babies a minute.-giving him a. correct
Idea of the rate of birth." .
Mr. Boberg admits that even his ex
planation is somewhat complex, so that
visitors will have to wait and be shown.

to submerge the railroad yards near the
river. Many families living near the river
have moved from their homes.
When the water began to rise trains
of flat cars loaded with sand bags were
hurried to Venice. Men worked all the
afternoon building a levee of bags to pro
tect the tracks of the Chicago and Alton
Last night the river registered 31
feet. A foot and a half more will cover
the railroad tracks, while 35 feet will flood
almost every street in the town.
Residents of the lower sections of Mad
ison, 111., are becoming alarmed over the
high water and are preparing to leave the
town. Many have already engaged quar
ters at Edwardsvllle and Belleville, and
will move at the first appearance of an
Although, the town Is a mile and a half
from the river, almost the entire town will
be flooded by a 35-foot stage of water if
the levees do not hold.
Parts of the lowlands west of the town
have not been completely drained since the
nooa of last year.
Residents of Venice and West Granite
City yesterday telephoned to Edwards
vllle, making inquiry for accommodations.
They stated that a rise of one foot more
would cause many families in the low
ground to move out, as they did not care
to take any risks after then experience of
last summer.
The stream through Mooney Valley,' halt
a mile north of Edwardsvllle, became a
freshet Sunday night, and carried away
EOtOOO feet of lumber. The timber had
formed the false work in the construction
of concrete arches by which the L. & N.
Railroad la carried over the valley, and
the work had been completed but a few
days. The lumber had been purchased on
the preceding day by an Edwardsvllle con
tractor, Joseph KesL Some of it has been
recovered, but the bulk of the lumber is
miles away.
More than 100 families In the Missouri
River bottoms In St. Louis County are pre
paring to leave their homes as a result of
a sudden rise in tho Big Muddy, due to the
recent heavy rains.
At least 2,000 acres of growing wheat are
under water, and if the rise continues the
crop may be totally ruined, entailing a
loss of at least J25.000.
Sunday night the river rosa two feet three
Inches, according to the gauge at the res
ervoir of the new Waterworks, which is
threatened with considerable damage from
the flood. But few of the farmers went to
bed. fearing that the rise would compel
them to flee before daybreak. Preparations
were made accordingly.
The river cut through-the, bank at Mona
and la now out as far as .flog rioilow
road. I
The current is surging in the direction
of the Creve Coeur Lake bottom, where
the channel of the river flowed before it
was chane-ed into Its present location. The
Creve Coeur lakes are both filled to over
flowing, and farmers living between them
and the river are preparing for an exodus
similar to the one last year.
The Missouri River and Creve Coeur
bottoms were both flooded last year, 300
families being compelled to flee for their
lives. Damage to the extent of (200,000
was done. , -
