Monsieur the Husband of
Emma Abbott
Poor Mr Wothorill Cawrence Bar
retts Throat Troaole Alfred
> Ayres on Protection
And so the great call has come to
Eugene Wetherill Ee was a man only
known in the world as the husband of
Emma Abbott and even that distinc
tion caused him to make but very little
noise We used frequently to wonder
While talking to him in the theatre box
officewhere he passed nearly all his
timejust what place this gentleman I
held in estimation of Miss Abbott
and her company It was very rarely
that he ventured behind the scenes
when he referred to his wife he always
spoke of her as Abbott and in a way
that was eminently far off and respect
ful He had none of the failings of the
average business manager who can see
no faults in his show I was glad
you pitched into Annandale for walk
ing through her part he said to the
writer after the recent performance ol
Martha here She takes your town
for a lot of suckers Make her ac
something besides draw her salary
He seemed to stand in a sort of awe of
the director Tomasi whom he
regarded as a sort of despot too
securely enthroned to be mur
mured against but he was known
to chuckle immensely to himself when
one of the newspapers gave Tomasi a
rub for some omission in his orchestra
He kept vigilant watch over the front of
the house and the professional dead
head was never known to work him
Report speaks variously of the wealth
he had gathered for his wife from a
long succession of prosperous seasons
but it is certain that he invested well
and that his widow need look to her
future with but little concern
Abbott cancelled her dates two
weeks in consequence of Mr Wetherills
death This is the brief chronicle the
Associated Press makes of Emmas tri
bute to the memory of her husband
Perhaps it is all he had ought to expect
The profession of the stage is one that
allows but little time for sorrow and
tears and if one has allowed himself to
unite with a devotee of the art he must I
look upon himself as holding a secon
dary placeit is the great public that
must first be consulted and an actress
must have no sorrows that will prevent
her rendering the great public its due
Wedded to her art is something more
than a phrase and so many a husband
besides poor Wetherill has found it
The discussion over Protection to
American actors still rages hotly in
the east Alfred Ayres the disting
uished ortheopist contributes his
views to the Mirror upon the all per
vading subject
NEW YORK December 281888
Editor New York Mirror
Dear SirI would not intimate that
I have any very well digested opinions
with regard to the movement making
tu ecure an amendment to the Labor
Co 1lct Law in the interest of the
Ammcan actor yet such as my
opinions or impressions are I willas
I have been asked to do go by two or
three members of the professionmake
known in the Mirror if you permit me
to do so
The only good that will come or
should come of the movement to any
one in my opinion will be simply the
good that comes of any movement that
makes men think
Were I an actor dependent on a sal
ary 1 should certainly favor the move
ment but were I a legislator 1 should I
just as certainly oppose it As a legis I
lator I should not legislate in the inter
est of a few but in the interest of the
many In this matter the legislator
should consider the playgoer as well
as the player
Even with the present influx of Eng
ish actors it is no easy task to cast a
play that demands more than fakir
merit properly to represent it
Instead of spending his time in the
vain endeavor to keep the English
player out by legal enactment let the
American player spend his time in the
laudable endeavor to make himself the
better player This is not only the
more practicable course to pursue in
order to compass the end aimed at it
is also the more dignified and manly
course Other things being equal the
American manager will employ the
American in preference to the English
actor every time
De plus the English actor as a rule
despite his pipe is more gentlemanly in
his dress and bearing of the stage
than the American actor which is an
important matter and one that greatly
and properly influences every em
ployer I
If England will drive from our stage
the fakirthe ignoramus who has not
learnedthat a little stage deportment a
little stage fearlessness and an ac
quaintaace with his part barely
sufficient to enable him to howl or to
chant through it is not all there is of
the actors art i or the lout that is too
lazy to acquire anything more than a
little stage deportment a little stage
fearlessness and a slight acquaintance
with the language given him speak
I say if England will drive the fakir
from our stage she will do u deal better
thing for us than would any thinkable
amendment to the Labor Contract Law
I would not be understood to inti
mate that in my opinion all the
English players that come to us are
actors Far from it But I would be
understood to intimate that in my
opinion we need all the actors Eng
land sends us and more too if we
would creditably represent any class of
drama save the knockdow nauddraa
out drama in which it matters little
how the language is spoken so that it
be noisily spoken and the aotion be
sufficiently violent Truly yours
The wires bring us word that the
swelling on Lawrence Barretts throat
has developed into an immense
tumor which will require an
operation to remove This probably
Barrett will have
means that Mr
1 to retire from the stage fora sea
sonwe hope only for a season When
he and Mr Booth were last performing
here the immense unnatural develop
ment of bio neck could be plainly per
ceived and in the eyes of many it was
so repulsive as to mar their enjoyment
of his acting Many others claimed
that the swelling was a natural defect
which Mr Barrett had always pos
sessed but the ominous news that he
had to retire for a season of rest con
futes this claim His thousands of ad
mirers everywhere throughout the
laud will wait with interest for the hour
of his health and his return to the
boards will be hailed with widespread
