Mr. Walker Whiteside, the ver7 talented
young actor, will return to tho Coates this
week for a brief engagement. In which he
will be seen In four of his strongest im
pirsonations. The repertory will bo as fol
lows: Monday, "Hamlet"; Tuesday, "Rich
elieu"; Wednesday afternoon, "The Mer
chant of Venice," and Wednesday night,
Mr. Whiteside has grown rapidly In pop
ular favor, and has made considerable prog
ress in artistic finish since he first made his
appearance in this city. His impersonation
of Hamlet is one. of the most interesting
characterizations of the Prince of Denmark
now upon our stage. It is perhaps the most
meritorious of all his roles, and for this
reason it is particularly appropriate that It
should bo employed for the opening ot the
engagement. . t, . .
When Mr. Whitesido was in this city last
season he was surrounded by a much
larger company than had hitherto been as
eociated with him. It Is pleasant to note
that most of the same people are still In his
apgregation. Mr. Charles D. Herman, a
virile actor of the robust school, and Miss
Leila Wolstan. an actress of engaging and
impressive qualities, are still the leading
support. Others in the casts are: Mr.
James Cooper. Mr. J. M. Sturgeon. Mr. J.
M. Salnpolls. Mr. J. L. Saphore, Mr. Rob
ert Leland. Mr. G. B. Fowfer Mr. T. Will

For three nights,- beginning 'Thursday,
comedy will be the bill at the Coates. Mr.
Herbert Kelcey and Miss Effle Shannon
will make their first appearance In this
city as stars. They will also present for
tho first time here a new comedy by Made
leine Lucette Ryley. entitled "A Coat of
Many Colors." It will be remembered Mrs.
Ryley has written several successful come
dies "An American Citizen " which Is be
ing presented by Nat Goodwin. Is probnbly
the best known, although "Christopher,
Jr.." was very popular as presented by
John Drcvr. About the stars themselves lit
tle need bo said, as they are well remem
bered by theatergoers In this city., Mr.
Kelccy was leading man with, the Lyceum
stock company for over ten years, and was
always a favorite. His personality and
high esteem. Miss Shannon will also be
remembered as being with the same organ-

The scenes of the -play are laid, in New
York city and Cedarwood, N. J. Herman
Walbovs the hero Is a etald bachelor law
yer with decided views against matrimony.
At tho opening of the play he has received
a telegram from a young woman lawyer,
who has- been sent Sast as a representative
of a San Francisco firm. The young woman
has been entrusted with a delicate mission
involving the bringing together of two peo
ple who have been separated after a brief
matrimonial venture. Walboye becomes
speedily Interested and promises h.s help.
Seeking for the woman In the case he dis
covers the fact that she Is engaged to no
less a person than his own.father a flighty
person who takes nothing seriously. Added
to this Is tho knowledge that the child of
the unhappy couplo whom he Is charged
to brine together Is none' other than this
young Western acquaintance. It need not
be added that In the various complications
that follow. Walboys becomes enamored of
tho Western girl, and It, of course, termin
ates In a life partnership. This theme Is
the main one in Mrs. Ryley's work, and
furnishes a real dramatic Interest. But
there are other complications which the
author has woven into the story, and which
help to furnish the humor of the comedy.
For Instance. Walboys' attempt to keep
secret the matrimonial entanglements of
his younger brother leads to a series of
amusing incidents. Mrs. Ryley excels In
character drawing, and all the- roles In "A
Coat of Many Colors" are said to be so well
differentiated that they combine-In present
ing an effective and harmonious whole.
Mr. Herbert Kelcey will be seen as Wal
boys. and MIfs Ellle Shannon aa the girl
from, the Webt, Mr. Samuel F. Kingston,
tho manager has surrounded Mr. Kelcey
nnd Mis.s Shannon with a supporting com
nanv in which it would bo difficult for the
most captious to pick a Haw. The fact that
tho company includes air. William J. L.o
Mnvnc famrd for the exnulsitn rlMlmrv
of ills humor, gives the keynote as to the
quality of the support as a whole, and he
has worthy company In Mr. E. D. Lyons,
Bruce McRne. David Torrence. Edward See.
Edwin James. Miss Ellle Wilton, and Miss
Georgia Busby. The play is superbly
mounted with elaborate special scenery nnd
every requisite necessary to an unusually
perfect production. (
The appearance here of Mme. Sofia
Scalchi, together with her associates on
Thursday afternoon. January 27, at the
Coates opera house, VIII mark an ovent
of the season. Scalcnl is without doubt
the most famous contralto In the world.
She has had twice tho experience of any
living contralto, not because she is old.r,
but becauso she has had tho greatest num
ber cf engagements which kept her con
tinually before the public
In lbiS she was engaged from May to
July In London, from September to Feb
ruary In St. Petersburg and from Febru
ary to May in New York. No other oper
atic artist In the world was c-er In so
great demand. For seven years this round
of yearly engagements was continued and
it Is the great contralto's boast that no
other operatic artist has been heard by so
many people as she has. Scalchl's voice
is at onco a noble and flexible contralto.
Her diction Is remarkable It Is a well
known fact that after two seasons with
Scalchi when honors were, divided, Pattl
would not sing with the great contralto,
either in opera or concert. Scalchi, in tho
operatic entertainment to be given here,
will be assisted by a wonderful soprano,
Mario Toullnguet, a young woman who
made an immense hit last season with the
Imperial opera company, under the vet
eran Mapleson, who chose this young
woman as his principal dramatic soprano.
Both of these wonderful artists will be
heard In acts from the medium grand
operas, with fine casts nnd appropriate
scenery, costumes, parnphernalla, etc.
Aside fromthe operatic presentation, thero
will be a miscellaneous concert programme
that will introduce all the artists of the
company In favorite selections, with Mme.
Scalrhl in her remarkable singing of the
pace's song from "Tho Huguenots," which
she has sung no less than thousands of
times. Aside from Mme. Scalchi and Mile
Toullnguet. tho company Includes Mlltr
Mario du Bedat. .mezzo soprano; Thomas

The new play at the Ninth Street opera
house, beginning with the matinee to-day,
entitled, "Klllarney and the Rhine," is a
play unique and natural in Its style, being
a story of modern home life In Ireland with
that picturesque country produced in a
manner which will bring back many a
pleasant remembrance to those familiar
with the localities. The pleco Is said to be
interpreted by an excellent company, head
ed by that well known actor, Mr. J. 13.
Toole, who plays the part of Conrad, the
German Gypsy, interspersing some special
ties. Including songs of his own composi
tion, accompanied by the guitar, and some
wooden shoe dancing so familiar to the na
tives of German soil. Mr. Toole is sup
ported by Miss Lillian DeWoolf, who es
says the part of Elly O'Neal, a sprightly
Irish damsel, who Is in love with Conrad.
Miss DeWoolf is said to possess a fine voice,
and will entertain with many songs and
dances. The other people are James Mc
Donald. John E. Lane. Royal C Stout,
Richard Anderson. Royal Barker, F. M.
Woods. Benjamin Thomas and Nellie Llnd
roth. There are said to be many situations
and hair-raising climaxes, all tending to
arouse and retain popular interest.
Murray and Mack, the well known and
popular Irish comedians, will como to the

Emerick, the author of two former suc
cesses, "Irish Neighbors" and "Finnlgan's
Ball." The play Is drawn upon a farce
pattern, with strong lines of humor. Inci
dent and specialties, and pretty dances here
and there brighten and strengthen the per
formance. All the scenery, mechanical ef
fects and costumes are said to be new
Messrs. Murray and Mack are popular with
tho public, and In the present Instance they

Stories and Gossip -i
of the Stage.
The return to the Coates this week of
Herbert Kelcey and W. J. Le Moyne, after
an abience of some years, recalls the early
Lyceum Theater stock company, with which
these two popular actors wero associated,
especially as Miss Effle Shannon, who is
Mr. Kelcey's co-star, was later leading
woman with the same organization, al
though Ehe never appeared in that capacity
In this city. Indeed, the whole company
announced for "A Coat of Many Colors,"
Including, in addition to those already
named, such favorites as E. D. Lyons,
Georgia Busby, Ellle Wilton and Bruce
McRea, Is calculated to remind ono of the
begt stock organizations of the past. But
speaking of tho old Lyceum stock, as it
first appeared here in "The Wife," how
its members are scattered! At that time it
was composed of Georgia Cayvan, Herbert
Kelcey, Grace Henderson. Louise Dillon,
Mr. nnd Mrs. Walcot. W. J. Le Moyne.
Charles Dickson, Nelson Wheatcroft and
Henry Miller, all of whom are still living,
with the exception of Nelson Wheatcroft,
who died about two years ago, while all
tha survivors, with the exception of Miss
Dillon, who married and retired from the
stage, are still in active work. Most of
them. In fact, are, or have been, stars of
greater or less magnitude.
Octave Mirabeau's socialistic drama,
"The Bad Shepherds," Just produced by
Bernhardt, In Paris, has made a sensa
tion, enthusing somo and disgusting oth
ers. Bernhardt plays a factory
girl, who marries a labor agi
tator and participates In the
scenes of anarchy rsultlng in
both their deaths. Here is a
description of tho closing
scene: in the nrth anu final
act the battle Is over and the factory Is a
mass of smoldering ruins. Widows and
orphans shrieking In despair throng upon
the stage, searching among tho slain for
tho bodies of husbands and fathers. Stretch
ers with human bodies blackened by fire
and smoke are one after another placed
side by side in long rows, amid the heart
rending sobs of women and children. The
audience became Intensely excited by this
development of realism never before at
tempted on the French stage. Voices ex
claimed: 'This is not a play; it is the Char
ity Bazar catastrophe over again!'
'Enough, Enough! It is the morgue! It is
the morgue!' Tho emotion reached a climax
when a woman rushed forward saying:
'Madeleine is not dead. She still breathes!'
Madeleine, lifted by the arms of two men,
begrimed with ashes and dirt, is drawn
from a heap of dead bodies. She is appar
ently a corpse. There is a dark red bullet
hole In her forehead. Clots of blood have
matted together the locks of her blonde
hair. Blood trickles over her glazed eye3
and waxen face. For a moment she re
gains consciousness. She places her left
hand upon the terriblo bullet wound In her
templo. She withdraws It dampened with
blood, and. gazing in horror at her stained
fingers, rises slowly to her feet, asking for
her husband. This resurrection, as it were.
Is appalling. 'Jean, Jean! Bring me Jean!
she exclaims. Hargand Is kneeling beside
the body of his son Robert, who was among
the first killed. 'Go away, go away! Rob
ert's body belongs to us!" she cries. More
victims are brought in on stretchers. At
last the body of Jean Roule, fearfully man
gled, appears. Madeleine, dripping with
blood, presses her hands to her sides with
nervous clutches, and then falls dead upon
the corpse of her husband. Applause and
hisses, exclamations of disgust and of eager
approval, resound In about equal propor
tions from overy part of the theater."
The Matinee Girl In the Dramatlo Mirror
has something to say about the meteoric
career of actresses who don't stay on the
stage. This Is the way she tells It: "Not
long ago I met a young girl
wno nan come irum me v em
to become a member of n
school of acting. She hnd
brought $300 with her. which
hi nntfl in advance when she
joined tho school. Then she
bought a lot of makeup and felt like a full
fledged actress at once. I met her one
evening after a performance. In which ehe
had been allowed to appear. She had
walked across the stago twice and had
spoken two lines loud enough for the leader
of the orchestra to hear, and when I met
her she was simply consumed by the first
faint flush of success. She knew that Ehe
had a great future before her, and she felt
tho fire of genius burning, the entire world
was hers to conquer-that is how she felt
for one beautiful, brief night. Now this
fair maiden of the West Is thinking of re
turning to the bosom of her family, with
J3C0 worth of experience and the memory of
tho night sho walked across tho stage and
talked to herself. Sho will give her dear,
gcod papa a receipt for tho J300, show him
a programme with her name on it, and tell
the neighbors of tho great success she
made in New York, and that she has only
gone homo to rest yes, maybe!

communication states that the
Actors' Society of' America
wishes It "unequivocally re
rnriied that players are op
posed to Sabbath performances believing
a day of rest to bo as essential to their
well being as It Is to that of any other
class of workers." The communication fur
ther states that the society "must decline
to acquiesce in a proposition lending cdlor
to the unfounded Impression that the people
of th stage are Indifferent to the ameni
ties of life and to the moral sentiments of
Christian people." In conclusion the com
munication reads: "We, as actors, are com
pelled, perforce, to submit to many imposi
tions, and we are subjected to indignities
that, inasmuch as they are offered alike
to the women of our calling as to the men,
are already unbearable as they are humil
iating. The single measure of protection
specifically extended to the actor under the
statutes of New York Is the prohibition of
Sunday performances. Therefore, do we ap
peal to tho sense ot justice that should an
imate the legislator to Insure to us at least
a continuance of the one law now operating
In our favor." The communication states
that the society numbers 1,032.

P)ew ular actress who has been
di. wooed and won by the son
y of the vice chancellor. Before
giving his consent to- the
union, the vice chancellor invites Rose to
stay at his house in order that he may see
for himself what sort of a person she Is,
and whether she Is sufficiently presentable
and cultivated to bo admitted to so ex
alted a family circle. It appears that the
namu of the play Is taken, not from the
wells at Bath or Tunbrldge, but from the
old Sadler's Wells theater, made so famous
by Samuel Phelps. A unique feature of
this production is that the young Earl
of Rosslyn Is playing the rolo of the
son under the stage name of Mr. Stuart
Erskine. Of this novelty, the London
Chronicle remarks: "The earl will be the
first peer who has appeared on the stage,
although the barcnetnge has supplied the
theater with one or two able performers,
tho earliest of whom were Sir John and
Lady Oldmlxon, who played for some lit
tle time at Covent Garden theater in the
first vears of the century, afterward mi
grating to America, where they became
exceedingly popular. As Lord Rosslyn's
mother was a Fitsroy, he is a descendant
of Charles II. and Barbara Villlers, Duch
ess of Cleveland, a lady who was in her
day distinguished for her marked prefer
ence for the stage. Nor Is Lord Rosslyn
the only descendant of Charles II. now
upon the stage, for Mr. Cosmo Gordon, a
son of Lord Alexander Gordon Lennox,
now acting under' the name of Mr. Cosmo
Stuart at the Comedy, Is a descandant of
Charles Lennox. Duke of Richmond, left

In the laps of foreign singers, actors, ac

across the sea to spend their gains In other

the impresario, in a recent Interview.
"Take, for instance. Christine Nilsson, tha
Swedish singer. On her first season In this

She paid her hotel bills and the like, and
packed the rest away and carried it home
to the fatherland.
"Charles Wyndhnm, the famous English

went in that direction.

OF BERNARD SHAW.
Mr. Mansfield's production of George
Bernard Shaw's new play, "The Devil's
Disciple," brings into the foreground again
one of the distinctly unconventional careers
In the contemporary letters, says the Chi
cago Post. Shaw Is collectively an original.
Diluted In the acid of analysis, he resolves
Into many Ingredients. To Americans he la
generally best known as a dramatist on ac
count of his "Arms and the Man.' which
we have seen, and "The Devil's Disciple,
which we are soon to see. To some he is
known asa radical In socialistic doctrines
and doings which have drawn him, Into
publicity. In England, where the multi
plicity of his achievements is a common,
fact, he has a reputation for a diversified
list of accomplishments. At urst he was an
actor, then an art critic, novelist, political
essayist, public speaker and playwright.
By birth Shaw Is an Irishman, by resi
dence an Englishman. In his latest play
it is said that he has written himself a
British renegade and a most loyal Ameri
can. His father wa3 a financial failure, his
mother was an amateur musical success,
and the son has inherited these dominant
characteristics of both. As a boy ho at
tended various day schools, then worked
for a while In a land agent's office In Dub
lin, but office work was entirely distasteful
to him, and at the age of 20 he went over
to London to try his luck. There is no
royal road, however, either to usefulness or
fame, and Shaw found himself obliged to
tread the weary path of privation, like
many another before him. For several
years he struggled persistently, writing
articles that no newspaper would print and
novels that no publisher would publish. But
somehow or other ha fought his way into
journalism, literature and public life. Be
ing a frank realist in his dramatlo writings,
Snaw naturally avows penchant for Ibsen.
He believes Ibsen is greater than Shakes
peare, and that Shaw Is greater than
either. He once avowed his contempt for
the Bard of Avon. But his uncompromising
attitude toward the merely conventional Is
shown In small things as well as in great.
While In religion declaring himself to be
anything but orthodox. In diet he Is a vege
tarian; he is a total abstainer; he even does
not smoke, and In dress refuses to Bubmlt
to what he considers the absurdities of
modern costume, such as tho "hard, shiny
cylinders of black and white" worn on the
head, neck and wrists. Needless to say, he
does not wear a tall hat, ,and abjures col
.lars.and cuffs. It is.sald that ha. does not
'hesitate to r attend a, London first night la
a flannel shirt and. a . slouch hat.
One of Shaw's distinct personalities Is his
fund of wit and ever-ready speech, which
has served him well on more than one oc
casion. When "Arms and the Man" was
first produced In. London Shaw wa3 sum
moned before the curtain by an enthusiastic
audience. In the midst of their applause he
thought' he detected a hoot from a dls
EUtisned person in the upper tier. Tha
witty playwright was equal to the 'occa
sion, however. "I quite agree with my
friend in the gallery," said he, "but what
are two against so many?" On another oc
casion he was asked- -where he got his
talent for fiction, and he replied that it waa
revealed to him at an early age In the
very long prayers he used to make as a
a child. Asked for a description of him
self, ha once replied that he was "tha
wittiest man In London," and It would ba
difficult to disprove his statement, if any
body wished to do so. As to whether Shaw
should be taken seriously, one writer re
calls that some one has declared we cannot
be said to hold a belief firmly till we can
afford to laugh at it. .and If this Is so, then
Mr. Shaw Is one of the most serious be
lievers In the world.
The kernel of Shaw's dramatic dogma, a
word which he .would probably deny a place
In his vocabulary, as well as a concise ex
position ot the man's gift of expression. Is
contained In the following explanation of
his relation to his critics, which was writ
ten In reply to misapprehension of his
"Arms and the Man." "I think very few
people know howl troublesome dramatic
critics are. It Is not 'that they are morally
worse than other people; but they know
nothing. Or, rather, it, is a great deal worse
than that; they know everything wrong.
Put a thing on the stage for them as It Is
In real life, and Instead ot receiving It with
a blank-wonder of plain Ignorance they re
ject it with scorn as an imposture, on tha
ground that the real thing is known to' the
world as quite different. I am,
among other things, a dramatist; but I am
not an original one, and so I have to take
all my material either from Ufa at first
hand or from authentic documents. The
more usual course Is to take It out of other
dramas; In which case, on tracing It back
from one drama to another,! you finally
come to Its origin In the Inventive imagina
tion ot some original dramatist. Now, a
fact as invented by a dramatist differs
widely from a fact of the same name as It
exists In real life. Not only stage pumps
and tubs, but 'much more,' stage morality
and stage human -nature, differ from the
reality ot these things. Consequently, to a
man who derives all his knowledge of Ufa
from witnessing plays nothing appears
more unreal than objective life. A dra
matic critic Is generally such a man; and
the more exactly I' produce objective life
for him on tho stage the more certain he is
to call my play an extravaganza. It may
be asked here whether It Is possible for one
who every day contemplates the real world
for fourteen of his waking hours, and tha
stage for only two. to know more of the
stage world than the real -world. As well
might It be argued that a farmer's wife
churning for only two hours a week and
contemplating nature almost constantly
must know more about geology, forestry
and botany than about butter. A man
knows what ho works at, not at what ha
Idly, stares at."
Miss. Elizabeth Marhury. the American
theatrical agent wno handles Shaw s plays,
had occasion to remit him comparatively
a small amount of royalty received for one
of his works, and she did so In rather an
apologetic letter. The answer she received,
so Indicative of Shaw's character. Is here
presented In full: "Rapacious Elizabeth
Marburj': What do you want me to make
a fortune for? Don't you know that the
draft you sent, me will permit me to live
and preach socialism, for six months The
next time you have so large an amount to
remit please send It to me by Installments,
or you will put me to tho inconvenience of
having a bank account. What do you
mean by giving mo advice about writing a
play with a view to the box office receipts?
I shall continue writing just as I do now
for the next ten years. After that we can
wallow In the gold poured at our feet by a
dramatically regenerated public."
One of the closest students of this man
has said of Shaw .that what gives unity to
his work In all its branches (to none of
which he is willing to give precedence over
the. others) Is the underlying principle of
fearlessly questioning established order and
usage, whether In religion, politics, art or
everyday life. Add to this his unhesitating
endeavor to act upon the conclusions so de
rived and' we see an attitude that In
variably attracts attention If it does not

Tho London Globe, commenting on tho bad times,
agely advises artists "to give closer attention to
the nature ot the popular demand." In explanation
of what sounds rather llko a recommendation to
practice potbotftng, it says: "One thing most es
sential Is that painters should realize that the pro
duction ot easel pictures has ceased to be their only
mission. A plcturo now Is but one of many forms
In hlch artistic capacity can bo expressed, and It
happens to bo tho one form that Is most out of tho
reach ot tho averago buyer. Prices have been forced
up until there has como Into existence a tellef that
extravagant appraisement ot value Is tho only evi
dence or merit. Therefore plcturo buying has become
the amusement cf the millionaire, who collects rari
ties because by their mere cost they are stamped
with a fictitious hallmark ot excellence. The man
of ordinary means who cannot compote with the mill
ionaire accepts his view, and sooner than buy tho
cheaper things which are valuable only artistically,
and not archaeologlcally, leaves pictorial art entirely
alone. But he does not refuse to satisfy his ostbetlo
taste, and his satisfaction takes tho form ot patron
age of other branches of art. Here the artists who
will come down from their pedestals of unsold can
Tases may yet fraternize with him. As craftsmen
they may regain tha prosj-erity which as painters
they have lost, and In the wide field cf decorative
art many successes aro possible to them. That this
fact should be recognized is tho beat New Tear wish
that could bo offered to art."
