THE STAGE "All the world's a stase," and last week the drama was not enncted in the theater?, but in the polling booths and round the ballot box. There was an odd contrast, on election night, between the half-empty theaters, wi:h the actors reciting their familiar lines, and the rush and excite ment in the crowded streets outside. For once, the plays seemed stereotyped, and the actors' efforts mechanical and unieal. I suppose it could scarcely have been otherwise. Inside the theaters, the play ers' paint was hud on with studied art, their mimic joys and passions were excellently well feigned, but outside the excitement was real; the nation's puLse was at fever heat, and, contrasted with the men and women cheering the election returns, the actors seemed "merely players." ■ But the fever heat is all over now. The performance advertised by .the Advance Agent of Prosperity has come to stay, the audience has taken its piace, the curtain is about to ring up and theatrical man agers nre chortling in their glee, for peo ple are to have Their pockets full of money And their hearts full of cheer. (I dare not predict the original, which is: "Their cellars full of beer.") People are to have work and money, anyway, and they will then be in a position to patronize the drama right royally. Loie Fuller is going to sail away after her engagement here to dance before the Viceroy nnd the most exclusive circles in Chinese official life. Over there she will not appear in theaters open to the vulgar Chinese herd —on the contrary, 6he does not expect to dance in anything so com mon as a theater. La Loie will pass her time "mid pleasures and palaces" of offi cial life in the Flowery Kingdom, and her dances will be executed in marble halls before select circles of prinoes and man darins. In Paris they idolized Miss Fui ler, though the Parisians drew the line at building temples and erecting statues in her honor. At home she has been re ceived kindly, but the commandment for bidding idolatry has never been in the least jeopardized by her presence. La Loie may have her revenge for this cold ness when sl.e reaches China, for rumor says the wily Viceroy whispered in her ear that in all probability she woula dance herself into the ranks of the Celestial im- mortals and get her image into all the josshouses. If this be true what an alto gether novel and fetching advertisement it will make for La Loie's press agent to write her up as a deified mortal, and tell how punic is burning in her honor on a thousand altars. Where is San Francisco? This is not a conundrum. It is a bona fide question, asKed in good faith and inspired by con temporary musical news in Eastern papers. If we accept as gospel what these esteemed contemporaries say, San Fran cisco mun certainly have been blotted out of the map of the United States. Not one shock, but a series of shocks has brought me to this conviction. What we do is ig nored, what we don't do is told in large type; in fact it is plainly evident that when Mr. Ananias and Miss Sapphira are short of "copy" to eke out tneir musical news, they let themselves loose on this de voted City and its musicians, and the re- Bolt would justify anyone in asking: Where is San Francisco? I read the other day, with a good deal of interest, in the New York papers, how Mrce, Belinfante, the blind contralto, ha I just sung "for the first time in America" at Chickering Hall. All the papers em phasued "for the lirst time in America." Ii it possible that when she warbled here six months ago La Belinfante imagined herself to be in a detached suburb of Hongkong or in an outpost of the Mi kado's dominions? Another piece of news which has deeply interested me is the high praise which the San Francisco japers (accord ng to their Eastern con temporaries) are lavishing upon Mrs. Celia Fisher. It seems that Mrs. Fisher has created quite a furor here. Far be it from me to say that she has not done so. I only deplore never having heard of the lady, and hope for the future (if she is not an invention of the Ananias reporter) that she will cease hiding her light be nea'.h a bushel. Good singers are rare, and when found should be made a note of. But the dastardly work of the Ananias reporter was done when he ruthlessly drowned our gifted Mrs. Marquardt. The Musical Courier gave her a beautiful obituary notice last month, but that was sorry consolation for her death. It seems that John Marquardt wastheonly passen ger saved from the wreck of the Druni roond Castle off the coast of France last June, and that his wife perished. The Courier is five month* lato in get ting its news, but it compensates for that by giving hariowing detail". The distinguished violinist was on a pro fessional tour round the world, accom panied by his wife, Mme. Aleiandriua Ureitschuck Marquardt, a harpist of great eminence. There was a concert on board one night and v.-hile the strains of the music were still resounding the vessel went on thu rock?. The shock was a slight one and no one suspected that the Drum mond Castle was in serious danger till she began to sink. As the steamer was coingdown Herr Marquardt seized hold of a rail and sat asiride of it all night. At first there were three other persona sitting on the rail with him — the fourth officer ana a male and a femaie passenger. During the night, however, the others fell off and were drowned, Herr Maiquardt being the sole survivor. He was ultimately saved by a fisherman, having been in the water twelve hours. According to the Musical Courier this news was not "made in America." It was imported, doubtless at great expense, from Australia. So little does the Musical Courier know about San Francisco that it published the tale of woe in bland uncon sciousness that Mrs. Marquardt ha 3 been appearing at largely attended semi-weekiy concerts in San FrarjCisco for several months. I hope that tlie protection Mc- Kinley is soon to bestow upon us will in clude a tariff upon the efflorescences of the Ananias reporter's brain. Qreerxroom Qossip. Francis Wilson, when he enters on the stage ot the Knickerbocker Theater in the first act of "Half a King," calls to the donkey that draw|s his cart, "Whoa, Bryan !" A day or two previous to the election, just before his entrance, he was discussing politics with a friend in his dressing-room and McKinley's name was mentionp'l frequently. His cue came, and 0:1 went Wilson in his cart. To the sur prise ol every one on the stage he called out to the quadruped actor, "Whoa, Mc- Kinley!" It was a lapse of speech, and the comedian was nonplused for a mo ment. Then lie looked reproachfully at the beast and added, "I've been calling you Bryan for a month, and yet you wouldn't mind. Now I've given you a better name, perhaps you'll behave your self and try to deserve it." The audience greeted this impromptu speech with great favor. "But," said Wilson afterward, "it was a close call, and in this honest-money city a hiss wojld not have surprised me.\ Parishes talked a great deal about the Delia Fox in "The Little Trooper " at the Baldwin. [From a photograph by Morrison.] Arab chief, Ben Gand, who was in the gay French capital at the same time as the Czar, and who outstayed the great Rus sian father. Before returning to Beskra, Ben Gand wished to venture behind the scenes ol the Grand Opera-house while the ballet was in progress, as he thought it would be a sort of dress rehearsal of the Paradise of Mahomet. Ben Gand. on foot as on horseback, is a line figure of a man, and the dancers were not slow to let him sec that they thought so. The beautiful Mile, ganririni, surprised at his black eyes, black hair and black beard, asked: "Are they all as dark as that in Africa?' 1 Ami Ben Gand, with an air of perfect modesty, replied, "Oh. much darker than that, mademoiselle. Over there they call me an albino." Loie Fuller is going to carry 12 elec tricians to China with her, to manipulate ihe lights used in fcer dances. She will also carry away masses of voluminous draperies, and aruong them a pansy gown, which like all others, is from her own de sign. In an Enstern theater not long Rgo she spread the pansy gown over two thirds of her dressing-room and explained its intricacies to Half a dozen women, who pressed forward in admiring chorus. "You are a genius, an artist," volun teered an enthusiast. "Notan artist." corrected Miss Fuller. "I paid $300 for the pai'.sies in that gown, and my .-ister, who lirst did the dance with me, painted her own." In his recently published "Musical Reminiscences" Arditi tells a number of good stories of musical celebrities, some of them old, some published for the first time. Of Christine Nilsson, he says that when she wa< studying with him she was so nervous that s>he frequently tore the lace on her dress. Arditi knew many fa mous composers, among them Rossini, who when lime. Arditi was introduced to him exclaimed gallantly: "Now I know why Arditi composed 'The Kiss.' ' ' Once when Arditi conducted Her Majesty's Opera in St. Louis a man walked twenty miles "to hear Queen Victoria sing in Her Majesty's troupe. " The St. Louis papers are circulating the statement that. Lillian Russell is again contemplating matrimony. Miss Russell ; den es the statement, and declares that she is firmly wedded to her art. It seems that Miss Russell remained in St. Louis to t«ke a much-needed rest, and there she happened to meet Walter Jones of the "Gay New York Company," who is her declared admirer. The two were seen a good deal together, and the report went forth that they were engaged, but the par ties most interested strenuously deny the soft impeachment. Miss Selma Herman, the clever young actress who plays the character of Ilda, the daughter of an exile, in "Darkest Ru£s:a," had a thrilling experience with a trolley-car while in Denver last week. As she was crossing Sixteenth street, on her way to the theater, she became confused by the bustle and clanging oi gongs around her and was struck by a car. The prompt action of ihe motorman saved her. At the risk of his life he leaned over the dash board nnd caught her as she fell and pulled her from under the wheels. The young woman luckily escaped with only a torn and soiled gown. Miss Herman showed her gratitude by a liberal purse and later presented the hero with a diamond scarfpin.
