In the language of the street urchin, "dere nuttin' doin. " is gfattmin Just now and what little is be tas done fs far from weU done. Of course, tlte event of tbe local week has beea the pcaaoctiott at "Children of the Ghetto," wMcn occurred on Monday night at the Herald Square. Reports of tbe success of the piece in Washington, Baltimore, and PkitMetpMa had reach! here and the au dience which aaaembied "a a large and fuktoaafete one. Seldom has the Evans Hotfper house been better filled. And it Is only fair to say that the gathering re mained until the nd of the play, despite the 'fact that, aside from the piece ilseir, it we given as disgusting an example of lanat ZangwiH's egotism as could be im agioed. Mr. Zangwlit's name ws placard ed all over the theatre, had the biggest type on the programmes, and was printed en the souvenirs handed out at the door. Nothing quite so bold has ever been beard of before in this burg. Despite .all these things despite tbe ex cellent advertising the presentation had had, "Children of the Ghetto" was a griev ous disappointment to us. We had been tM souuch about the enthusiasm with "Which the drama was accepted everywhere. Aad so we waited through the first act pa tiently. When the second brought nothing hot strauge faces and strange studies in no way connected with the central theme we began wondering and worrying. Before the really strong scene of the third act Game we were all dreadfully weary and 1 ijhowld have gone home bad I not been asjcious to find out how much conceit Mr. Sadgwlll had left himself for use in his speech. I was not evea pleased with the final dimax. It made me want to swear. The efforts of the cast especially of Wil toa Lackaye, Blanche Bates, and William Karris were decidedly pleasing, but they could not redeem the offering. At mid jrfgfet I was sure that "Children of the Ghetie" had failed. On Tuesday morning I found that I had been right. Every prominent reviewer in jew had something condemnatory to say afeout the piece. A Brooklyn frisnd of antoe tells me that tbe Lieblers are issuing a circular in which they wi.l attempt to prove that tbe local critics were preju dietta. I don't think this plan wiil be car ried out, but. If it is, no good will be done. Sitfcer publicly or privately, every man ager whose attraction has been "roasted" makes this claim. I, for one, am hardly lacHtied to believe that men like William Krister and papers like the "Dramatic Mirror" would stoop to that sort of thing. It seems improbable that if they did all -weald agree so thoroughly on the difficulty wtofcih Mr. Zangwill failed to surmount in constructing "Children of the Ghetto." There is a little story that crops into my memory as I begin writing about the New York performances of "The Girl From tbe Barracks." It tells of a gentleman who ashed the attendant in a museum whether one of the stuffed animals was an ostrich or an elephant. The fellow touched his cap, and replied: "Hi don't know, sir. Anythink you loike, sir. You pays your money and takes your choice." This is ex actly the privilege that was given here on Monday. Folk who care to be entertained hi their native tongue and between Mad ame Fougere and the Kendais these are eonrtng to be few were invited to go anmad to the Garrick and there see Louis Mann and Clara Lipman in their new farce, "Tbe Girl Prom the Barracks." Those otherwise inclined bad only to step over to Irving Place to see the same piece none in German. At neither threatre- was K. a great success. "My Innocent Boy" dteA recently at the Garrick, and the house is still morgue-like in consequence. jfleitfcer Mr. Mann nor Miss Lipman, who is Mr. Mann's better half, is particularly funny, and their present vehicle does not contain a. single original idea. You in Washington are to be congratulated upon having escaped its premiere. But one offering remains to be reviewed. Tins play te a "hayseed" melodrama, called "the Dairy Farm," and it has just been done at the Fourteenth Street Thea tre. It appears to have scored not ponder ously tost heavily. The story is the con ventional one of a mortgage on the old pi see and the good fortune that prevents its foreclosure in the nick of time, but the production is elaborate and there are many flue points In the work. The beet of thesf Is in the fact that no male quartette of hungry farm hands appears during the progress of the plot. A very capable cast, which includes Eleanor Merron, Jean Clara Walters, Percy PiunkeU. Charles Hallock. Grace Hopkins and Catherine Carlisle, In terprets the presentation. The scenerj provided is adequate and "The Dairy Farm" is in for a run. At the American Theatie, the Castle Square Opera Company is more than dupli cating its last year's success. "Aida" was enacted so realistically the other evening that Joseph Sheehan was severely cut dur ing the duel and real blood flowed for sev eral minutes. I am informed on creditable authority that considerable real language was heard also between that act and the next. Business at the American grows bigger and bigger with no prospect of a stoppage. On the day after tomorrow souve nirs will be given to mark the organiza tion's five-hundredth appearance In New York. There will be a general moving tonight at the local places of amusement a mov ing of plays and players with the result that the first half of next week will be a busy period for the critics. Alice Nielsen. who has been rehearsing here for nearly a month, opens in her new vehicle, "The Singing Girl," on Morday at the Casino. The bed-and-pajama farce, "In Paradise," is leaving the Bijou and on the evening adopted by Miss Nielsen the jovial May Irwin will begin her regular season there in "Sister Mary." Blanche Walsh and Melbourne MacDowell will come to the Grand with "La Tosca." On Tuesday we are promised a performance of the long-delayed- "The Song of the Sword," by E. H. Sothern and Virginia Harned, at Daly's. Julia Arthur will present "More Than Queen" at the Broadway, where the last rendering of "The Ghetto" will be given in a few hours. Later in the year Miss Arthur promises "Hamlet." To this we are looking forward eagerly not because of the star's histrionic development, but because of her physical development. Charles Frohman, who was recently ridi culed in The Times for advertising his I opinion of "The Girl From Maxim's," has just come to the conclusion that "The Only Way" is a meritorious piece and is . now announcing his decision. Excepting ! only Israel Zangwill, this nonsense brands Mr. Frohman as the greatest egotist on Broadway, and I am glad to see that the newspapers are frank enough in giving their ideas of the nutter. Manager Pitou has begun rehearsals of "The Gunner's Mate," the new naval dra ma which he will produce November 0, on the road and will soon after bring to the Fourteenth Street Theatre. I have read the play and it seems to contain the essen tials for success. "Broadway" is the title of a new bur lesque that is to be put on shortly at the New York Theatre. It will take the place of "The Man in the Moon, jr.," which is to be sent en tour in the hands of a com pany headed by that most doleful of come dians, Sam Bernard.

"3 o o O o 416 Seventh St Seventh st A DOG ELECTED JdARSTTAT,. The Cmiliio Dulj IiiiiiiKTuratiMl at .Vu- rora, 1ml., Ycnrs Ak- (From the I'liilddclplna Inquirer.) Aurora. Ind . is piobably the only city in tbe country that ever elevated a dumb animal to an office of public trust. A move ment has been recently put on foot to per petuate the memory of this distinction. It is proposed to erect a statue to "Bob," a dog. The sculptured form of a noble-looking canine mounted on a pedestal will serve to remind the unborn generations that Aurora is the only corporation in the nation, and possibly in the world, that over duly elected a dog to an authorized legal office, the dumb animal defeating a human being at the polls. It was over forty years ago that a pretty Newfoundland puppy was taken In by Jim Kelso who in the S(Ts was well known all over southern Indiana. Jim was a reckless character, and he and the dog became tho truest of friends even to dramatic death. He named the pup Bob, and its growth to a dog was marked by the development of a most remarkable sagacity. Bob was train ed to a point where he seemed only to lack the power of speech to make him human. One of Bob's training feats was to catch a man throw him down, and hold him un til ordered to let go. He would not Injure or in the least harm his man, but he could handle tho strongest. To this., one bit of training, coupled with his great intelli gence, are due to a -very great -extent the honors which were later heaped upon him. He made himself Immensely popular with the constabulary department of the city, and achieved great reputation as a thief-taker. One Instance was recalled a few weeks ago when a couple of boys playing on the banks of Hogan Creek found a kit of rust eaten counterfeiters' tools and dies and a quantity of metal buried under the bluffs. The dies wore undoubtedly for the spurious half-dollars which Hooded Aurora and southern Indiana fifty years ago. At that time all of the southern Indiana of ficers united to round up a gang of coun terfeiters known to be operating near Au rora. It fell to Bob, however, to break them up Ho found them one night near where the dies have just been discovered, and he captured them while they were at tempting to escape to the Kentucky shore in a boat. Ha plunged in after them, up set the boat, and then, dragging the half drowned leader from the river, held him down until tho officers were attracted by his barking. Thus Bob started the chief counterfeiter toward the long sentence which was later given by the Government. There is no doubt' that the kit recently found was the ono used by the gang. It was this incident and the reputation of the dog for police duty that, in the sub sequent election, caused him to be voted for at the polls. It was the city election of 5U. His name appeared on the ballots as '"Bob Kelso." The election was held in due form under the laws of Indiana, and Bob's name was legally entered and is so recorded in the old State registers. Tho election was a hot one. The dog's oppo nent was'CIint Teetge, and the office was that of town marshal. When the ballots wero counted it was found that Bob had defeated his opponent by thirty-one votes. Old Captain Weaver and several other prominent and wealthy citizens of that pe riod promptly took steps to have the dog invested with the rights of the office to which he had been elected by a decisie majority. Weaver prepared in legal form an official bond in the .sum of $5,000, signed by numerous citizens,.jaud, with a pioperly endorsed certificate .from the election board stating that Bob had received a ma jority at an official -election, Jl appeared before the president of the council and asked that the oath baiadministered. That day is deserving of becoming a part of election history. Th.e entire town turned out. There was parade and a grand hur rah all the way down Jhe line. The people presented themselves before President Spaiks. of the council,, with the dog, wear ing officer's star qnihisi breast and carrying his bond in his mouth. Kelso ordered him to stand up on hisf lund legs and hold up his right paw in a position to take tho oath. President Spuria was requested to administer the regular- form, which binds the officer to faithful discharge of the du ties of the ollieo fon wbach he has been duly elected, as required by the law, under pen alty of jeopardy of bond. Sparks positively refused to administer the oath, and would not consider the mat tor in any other light than a great joke. Tin backers of the brute asserted that sincerity and produced their bond for the dog; and Insisted upon the animal being sworn in. which Sparks still refused to do. They then swore to defeat him at the next election. The entire town rose in arma over tho affair, and Sparks was defeated as tho result. The matter was taken to court, and it was docided that a bruto could not take the oath of office. The fight embit tered many and made Kelso and Captain Weaver many enemies. A few months later Kelso met with some roversos and committed suicide. The dog found Kelso's body- and mourn ed over him until he was buried. He then took up with Tom Wamscott, who enlist ed in the army when the war broke out and later achieved marked attention in tin Eighteenth Indiana under OapL James L. Ilolman, a brother of the distinguished In diana Congressman, who died recently. He took the dog with him, and Bob became the "son" of the regiment, always faithful to his master on the march and In battle. It was at the battle of Pea Rldge that Wainscott was killed, and bis body lay on the battlefield many long hours after the fight had ceased. The gallant dog had been under fire also, and he lay down over his dead master's body and watched over the shattered corpse, licking the blood away- from the face. When, the next morning, the soldiers went on the field to bury the dead, they found the dog still there and no effort could induce him to leave tho body or allow anyone to touch It. , Finally one of tho soldiers seized the corpse totlrag it away. The dog attacked him with such ferocity that his comrades, fearing the Io'g"""would 1T11 the mail, ran a bayonet through theanimal. Wounded to the death. Bob crept "back to the corpse, took up his watch, and died. As a recog nition of his highest duty to his master the soldiers buried him with Wainscott, and together they lie in a little grave long since lost under the grasses of Pea Ridge. ILJs claimed that tho .star which Bob wore suspended around his neck the day of the parade is in the possession of SRarks, who is supposed still to be living some"'i)Iace in Missouri.
