WILSON BARRETT'S HAMLET.
During the past week Loa Angeles
play-goers have enjoyed a treat of no
common character in the plays pre
sented by Mr. Wilson Barrett. The
star's fine stage presence, charming
voice and high order of histrionic talent
lent a fascination to these performances
that will not soon bt forgotten.
There is one of his characters that
calls for more than a passing glance.
It demands some closer analytical effort
because of its place at the head of all
the dramatic literature of human his
tory, and because of certain attempted
innovations in the interpretation of the
character by Mr. Barrett. The role is
of course that of Hamlet. The in
novations of this actor are four. He at
tempts to make Hamlet a youth of
' about 20; he attempts to make
him a youth of much de
cision of character, instead of the
purposeless man usually presented on
the stage; he £ attempts to strip him of
much of his melancholy; and he at
tempts to strip him of much of his dis
guise of assumed insanity. Now let
First, Hamlet was not a youth of 20,
and there is no way to make Shake
speare's Hamlet of such an immature
j age. The grave-digger says he came to
his calling the day Hamlet was born,
and he says he has been sexton of that
church" man and boy these thirty years."
Sexton and grave-digger are the same
person. This merry man of melancholy
occupation says the skull of Yorick has
lain in the earth three and twenty
years. Mr. George Barrett, who played
tlie part of the grave-digger here last
week, actually changed the text
in this passage to suit his broth
er's theory, and substituted "a
dozen years" for the author's "three
and twenty," and it cost him some effort
and hesitation to make the change in
the text. Hamlet says Yorick has
carried him on his back a hundred
times, and that he has kissed "those
lips" he knows not how often. The
prince must have been several years
old at least to have remembered the jes
ter in his lifetime. Here again we add
some years to "three and twenty" and
get about to the thirty-year-term of the
sexton as Hamlet's age. Hamlet then
was more than twenty. Mr. Wilson Bar
rett says if he had been of age he would
have succeeded to the crown. Why so?
Are there no records in history of usur
As to Hamlet's indecision the text is
almost as strong against Mr. Barrett.
He was a student, a philosopher, one
lost in thought, and in profound re
search. He was a dreamer, and most
unlike the average man. In all things
he hesitates, vascillates, reasons, flies
from his purpose. Plunged into pro
found grief over his father's
death and his mother's de
fection he contemplates suicide, but
lacks the nerve to do the act. He tells
his companionsjhe has seen an "honest,"
that is, a real ghost, and again tests the
correctness of this impression by all
sorts of devices to discover the truth of
what was revealed to him. Tried in his
love of Ophelia, he'goes off at a tangent
again and again in his dealings with her.
The famous soliloquy is the revelation of
the true Hamlet. "To die, to sleep."
It is tbe same. But in a moment come
visions of unquiet dreams. Death may
not be sleep. This philosopher has settled
nothing to his satisfaction. He is high
minded, he is',just, he is the soul of
honor. His "prophetic soul" points to
his uncle, and yet he cannot be satisfied
even with the supernatural message and
admonition to revenge. He is not sure
there is a hereafter, how then can he be
sure there is a ghost, and if not how be
sure of the murder of his father. His
conscience makes a coward of him, and
his mind is "sicklied o'er with the pale
cast of thought," and all his purposes
"their currents turn awry and lose the
name of action."
So melancholy seems to be the true
color of his disposition. To be sure,
Mr. Barrett is not an innovator here,
but has high authority to back him.
Fechter always played a Hamlet of
cheerful mood inside of the gloom cast
over him by his father's death,
his mother's fault and the
shadow that followed him from
his "noble father's" grave. He may
have been—probabiyjwas—cheerful by
nature; but as we see him in the story
there is little scope for any display of
such natural quality. Cheerfulness un
der the circumstances would be unnat
ural in any man of any disposition. The
gloom is too profound for any mien but
that of melancholy.
Lastly, as to Hamlet's sanity. There
is no need at this time to enlighten the
critical world on that point. The "an
tic disposition" he he has

"put on." Out of the sight of the king,
queen and their adherents he knows well
a*'hawk frornahernshaW." Butwhilethe
eyes of his foes are on him he is careful
to wrap the disguise around him in im
penetrable fashion. Here is wnere Mr.
Barrett errs again. He makes the dis
guise so thin that even the king must
have seen through it had the real Ham
let worn it so loosely. To show the
difference between true madness
and feigned, "fair Ophelia" is brought
on the stage with her wits as
decayed as her father's life. Yet
Hamlet was scarcely sane in all re
spects. His studies, his sorrow, ttie vis
ions he saw, the terrible task laid on
him caused a screw to become loose
somewhere in his mind. But there was
"method" in his madness.
Mr. Barrett is a clever actor and pre
sents a very delightful Hamlet, but his
strength is in his art, not in his acu
men as a Shakespearean critic.
DRIVING ON THE ROCKS.
The silver bill and MeKinley's tariff
bill are the Scylla and Charybdis which
confront the Republican ship, and there
is not enough political seamanship in
the party to steer clear oi them both.
Blame has boldly proclaimed the Mc-
Kinley tariff scheme as a measure which
will wreck the Republican party, and
Blame knows what he is talking about.
What McKinley is doing on one side
Speaker Reed is doing on the other.
Acting in the interest of the gold bugs,
lie has by his ruling done all he could to
kill the silver bill as it
came back amended by the senate.
Shielding himself behind a very flimsy
and shadowy assumption of parlia
mentary practice, he has placed the bill
beyond the reach of the house by re
ferring it to a committee which is op
posed to the bill as amended. This he
did of his own motion, and without giv
ing the friends of the bill the slightest
chance to direct its reference or to save
it from going into the hands of its en
emies. It is possible that the indigna
tion excited by Reed's arbitrary action
may compel the committee on coinage to
report the bill back in time to enable its
friends to save it; but that will
not placate the silver men, who
justly feel that they have been shame
fully outraged. Here is the other rock
upon which the Republican ship is very
liable to split. The silver Republicans
are becoming very restive under the
action of Reed, and some of them have
had the nerve to vote with the Demo
crats in resisting the speaker's arbitrary
ruling. If the programme of the Re
publican enemies of silver is carried out
to the full extent that Reed's high
handed action indicates, there will be a
stampede in the party which will com
plete the wreck so efficiently initiated
by the McKinley tariff measure.
It will not require long for the people
to open their eyes to the animus of a
party that deliberately carries out the
behests of Wall street on the one hand
and the commands of the war tariff
j monopolists on the other. The great
j west will awaken from its lethargy under
! provocations of this stupendous charac
ter, and resent with its irresistible
strength the infamies of a party which
not only violates the pledges of its plat
form, but disregards the commonest
principles oi fair government in the
policy of its legislation.
THE EXECUTION OF FEMALES.
If there were a reason wanting to
give weight to the arguments of those
I who are opposed to the death penalty,
j the horrible spectacle at Elko on Friday
jof the hanging of Mrs. Potts and her
] husband would furnish it. The woman
; was a very heavy, portly woman, and
when the trap fell her neck was broken
I and the rope contracted so much that
! nothing but the strength of the cartil
! ages prevented decapitation. To add
j to the horror of the awful spectacle, the
I woman wore a white dress, which be
, came crimson with blood soon after she
fell. It is a disgrace to the century that
no more humane mode of execution has
j been adopted than that by hanging,
j The guillotine is decent to it. Shooting
,is far less objectionable, and if the New
I York plan of execution by electricity is
| found to be sure and reliable it will be
i the least revolting method yet devised,
jlf there were a certainty of life impris
onment being carried out, but few people
j would oppose dispensing with the death
penalty, especially in the case
of females. Whilst it is true
that women are as capable of the crime
J of murder as men—and some of the most
j atrocious murders in the annals of crime
j have been committed by women—yet
there is something so revolting to refined
natvrres in the execution of females that
but few would object to exempting them
from the death penalty if their confine
ment for life could be assured. The law
might in their case suspend the pardon
| ing power altogether, and that would
i render their expiation by life imprison
j ment almost certain. It is perhaps not
jso much the fact of executing a woman
; that is objectionable as the revolting
j manner of carrying it out by the rope.
If electricity is to take the place of the
j terrible gallows, and the extreme pen
| alty is to be carried out in private, wo
. men who imbue their hands in blood
' would excite but little sympathy by
their execution. But if on every occa
| sion such scenes as were witnessed at
j Elko must take place, and the world is
to be advised of their revolting details,
' then public opinion will not be long in
. asserting itself successfully against the
j execution of women.
The frightful results of the cyclone in
! Illinois, where whoie villages were
swept away in a moment and lives de
stroyed by the score, must make life a
I burden to timid and nervous people liv-
I ing in a country subject to such direful
visitations. Whether these terrible
storms have become more frequent than
they were in the past, or are more noted
on account of their dreadful effects in a
region that has become more densely
settled than formerly, is beside the fact
j that no city or town in the western
states is secure from them. Just think
of a school house, with teacher and chil
dren, being carried up bodily into the
air three hundred feet, to descend in
fragments to the earth, killing all who
were in it. A country subject to such
calamities may have compensating at
tractions, but for our part we would
rather live in a region where the ele
ments are better behaved and life is more
secure, no matter what might be the
CASTING A BRONZE STATUE.
A Ton and a Half of Metal Made Into
A ton and a half of bronze was poured
into a mold containing the representa
tion of the body, legs and a portion of
the arms of Henry Ward Beecher at the
Henry Bonnard Bronze Company's
works in West Sixteenth street recently,
and although ihe bronze made a great
sputter and stew about it, and ended up
in a rebellious outburst of flame
and smoke, experts were sure it
was a good job, and that the
casting will be found perfect when it
has been cooled enough to be uncovered.
A hundred or so persons witnessed the
casting. J, 0. A. Ward, the sculptor
who molded the statue, was one of
them. Colonel William C. Beecher rep
resented the Beecher family. The Rev.
Dr. Lyman Abbott and a number of
other Plymouth church people, with
most of the members of the statue fund
committee,were also there, accompanied
by thirty or forty ladies. The head of
the statue bad already been cast, and
was on exhibition. Everyone except
Colonel Beecher declared that it was a
marvelously excellent and accurate piece
of work. Colonel Beecher seemed dis
appointed because it couldn't talk.
While the visitors were inspecting the
head a picturesque gang of workmen
who talked French and wore blouses
were poking with long iron bars through
fiery holes in the floor of the foundry.
Jets of ted, white and green flame fol
lowed their poking. There nine holes,
and in each of them a crucible filled with
bronze had been kept red hot since
Thursday evening. Seven of the cruc
ibles held from 400 to 450 pounds each
of liquid bronze; the other two were
smaller. In all, about 3,500 to 4,000
pounds of metal was boiling in the fur
naces beneath the foundry floor.
At 4:30 o'clock the smallest workman
in the gang appeared with his legs to the
hips and his hands and arms to the
shoulders muffled in loose folds of car
pet. With huge tongs he pushed aud
pulled the heavy iron lids of the fiery
holes to and fro, so that the men with
bars could poke the coals loose from the
red-hot crucibles on every side.
The arm of a huge crane was swung
around and a big pair of many-lingered
tongs lowered into one of the fiery holes,
and in a moment there appeared the
open top of a crucible fast in the fingers
of the tongs. It was shaped like a nail
keg, but twice as big. One by one the
crucibles were raised and their contents
spilled into a huge iron pot which stood
at one end of the big and massive iron
frame holding the mold into which the
metal was to be poured. Brilliant lire
works were incidental to this proceed
Meantime a dozen men had clambered
upon the scaffolds about the iron frame
work, while others were raking a fiery
scum from the top of the iron pot to the
ground. In a moment the crane had
lifted the pot and hung it delicately bal
anced over the mold. Men seized long
arms an either side and tipped it gently
and carefully. A rill of fire ran over the
edge and splashed upon the dark
sand of the mold. The stream enlarged
until in a moment it was a river,
sputtering, crackling and shooting out
jets of flame and smoke. From a little
hole in front of the mold shot out a thin
stream of fire as intense as an electric
light. The little man in the side room
watched it eagerly. It came from the
vent hole, and so long as it was strong
and steady he knew that all was going
well in the interior of the mold.
The steady flow of tlfe stream had
lasted only a half a minute when sud
denly there was a frightful glare ; flame
and smoke seemed to envelop the
whole mold, and great splashes of
vivid color flashed through the air and
fell upon the ground. The workmen
sprang aw ay and tumbled to the ground,
with their clothing apparently all in a
blaze. The scaffoldings caught fire and
blazed fiercely. The women were all
terror-stricken, and the men among
the spectators tried to run. All that
had happened was that the mold
had been filled a little quicker
than was expected, and there had been
an overflow, and a lot of the molten
metal flying about too promiscuously for
the personal comfort of those near. The
blazing Bcaffolds were quickly extin
guished with sand and water, and the
workmen were found to have escaped
any more serious injuiy than burns on
the face and hands, which are not seri
ous incidents in a foundrynian's life.
The statue cannot be uncovered for sev
eral days yet.
The hand holding the well-known
slouch hat of the preacher has still to
be cast. When it and the head are put
upon the part cast made yesterday the
whole statue will weigh about 3,500
pounds, and will be nine feet high. The
total height with the pedestal, will be a
little less than twenty feet. There will
be a group of Blaves and one of chil
dren and other features in addition to
the main statue. The whole bronze
work of the monument will weigh 7.500
pounds.—[New York Sun.
The Newest in Luncheons.
Vanity luncheons are planned and en
joyed with a verve and a spirit which
make them exceedingly popular. The
hostess endeavors to get together twelve
of the most, beautiful women she knows.
Each guest wears what she considers
her most becoming gown, usually made
of sheeny texture in her "astral" color
(if _ she has yielded to the astro
logical fad and had her fate and colors
told). The table decorations are
generally yellow—as yellow will ac
cord with almost any other color.
Each guest is requested to tell what she
considers are the very best aids to the
retention and civilization of woman's
beauty. The menu consists of the
lightest, airiest gastronomic delicacies,
ranging from the lightsome puff or ome
let suffle to the fleeting foam of cham
pagne. The luncheon favors in one par
ticular instance were small hand-glass
mirrors of repousse silver so placed in
front of each winsome beauty that she
could easily review her charms.
The Napoleonic luncheon given in
honor of Mrs. Cleveland a few weeks ago
was charmingly original. All the ap
pointments as far as manageable were
of the era of Napoleon I. The relics of
"the little corporal" which were dis
played recalled many interesting inci
dents of his career.—[N. Y. Sun.

WHAT A MAN COSTS.
! Diary of a Householder Who Spent
$40,000 in Twenty-Six Years.
What does it cost to bring up a family?
A gentleman whose experience will be
recognized as having points in common
with other householders, has preserved
an account of the expense to which he
has been in rearing a family of four
children. Today be entered the follow
ing statement in his diary. It might be
a valuable statistical fact for the census
"Today I close my diary. Twenty-six
years ago I undertook to keep an accu
rate statement of all my earnings and
expenses, so that I might, know actually
how much it costs to live in the married
state. Then all was anticipation. land
my young wife counted our resources and
our expectations. I was receiving $15 a
week, with a promise of more. 1 owned
a house comfortable enough for frugal
young people to begin life in. AV'e were
spared house rent, therefore, and our
expenses have never included this item.
Retrospectively, I see that we have
brought up four children in com
paratively easy circumstances. My
health has been good and my
earnings have been constantly received.
I I now receive $30 a week, and we still
: own the homestead without any great
I additions to its wealth, except in an in
creased amount of furniture. I have
little more money than 1 had when first
married. Perhaps, all told, I have
$3,500 now of assets; then 1 had perhaps
$2,500. We have never wanted for
bread. Sometimes we have felt in need
of more money. Three of the children
arc now making their own way. Next
week the fourth graduates at the high
school, having received the same school
ing that the others have had, and will
begin to look out for himself.
"I shall not necessarily be at any
more expense on account of my children,
and the diary properly ends now. Would
I be willing to go through the same ex
perience again of rearing a family? I
asked my companion, who has borne the
greater part, this question, and I know
that she spoke with a heart full of love,
but was compelled to say: 'Not for all
that money could buy would I go
through again what has been necessary
to rear a family.'
"Expressed in dollars, the totals are
these: In twenty-six years we have re
ceived from my wages and incidental
moneys that came through my wife
and the children, $40,000—0r say 40,
--00 the amount of increase in
the permanent assets. Given a plant
of about $3,000 and two employees, man
and wife, it has taken, therefore, about
$10,000 to each man produced. This
of course, includes all employees' ex
penses. The plant is slightly enhanced
in value, but the employees have seen
their best days. The quality of the
goods is yet to be demonstrated. Pros
pects, happily, point to cessation of
labor and an increase of receipts,
but there is no certainty about this.
The employees are proud of their work,
but don't want another job.
"Some of the items of expense have
been these: Doctors' bills (twenty-seven
years), $2,100 (and all paid—probably
the only instance on record); groceries,
average per week, first five years, $7;
next three, $9; remainderof the twenty
six years, $13 a week. For ten years it
j has taken on an average one pair of
j shoes per week for the family, including
I myself and wife. The most annoying
thing I have ever known is the rapidity
[ with which children wear out shoes.
Only one thing approaches it—the
j high price of children's shoes. I never
' could understand how, with all the
! civilization of tho age, and the demand
I for cheaper results, children's shoes
have not been reduced in price. The .
i human shoe is a failure. No man not
j rich can afford to buy shoes for a family,
i and if I had it to do I would go to Tim
■ buctoo, where neither horses, mules,
j camels nor men are shod."—[lndian
