CHAUNCEY OLCOTT
Appears in the "Isie o' Dreams" at
the Metropolitan on Sunday,
August 25.
Chauncey Olcott,- always a prime
favorite in this city, will open the
regular season of the Metropolitan
Opera house Sunday evening, Aug. 2".,
continuing throughout the week, pre
senting a new play written by Rida
Johnson Young, entitled "The Isle o'
Dreams." The name is taken from
a small island off the south coast of
Ireland, on which the principal scenes
of the play are laid. Ivor Kelway,
the name of the star part, is a young
chap who has been buffeted onto the
shores of the little Island by the
waves of old ocean when an infant.
Rescued by the old parish priest.
Father John, he is given to the keeper
of the tap-room. Mother Kelway, and
raised by her as her son. In child
hood he has been the playmate of
Kathleen O'Doon, daughter of the her
editary lord of the island, and grcws
up to man's estate in love with her,
although that fact does not come
home to him until one bright day,
when Kathleen comes to him and asks
him to save from imminent arrest a
young man who is being pursued b?
the English troops as a spy of Na
poleon. Although heartbroken at the
thought that he may be Kathleen's
lover, Ivor agrees to help the young
man to make his escape, and in so
doing ascertains that the so-called
spy is in reality Kathleen's brother.
Robert, who has been to France to
complete his education, and is on his
way home to visit his parents, when
his foreign manner and knowledge of
the French language caused him to be
suspected of being a spy. Ivor help*
Robert to make his escape, but in so
doing falls into the toils himself, and
is arrested as an emissary of thft
dreaded Napoleon. In a scene of
beautiful detail and superb sweep of
color he breaks away from the Eng
lish soldiery and makes his way over
a cliff where the sheep are browsing,
and swinging himself off by a vino,
endeavors, with the aid of a boy
named Phellm, to escape by boat. The
English troops seize Phelim and
threaten him with death if he does
not disclose the whereabouts of Ivor.
As they are about to carry out their
language, and proposed that Scandi
navian be selected on account of the
large Scandinavian population of the
city. Dr. Lenker criticized the meth
od of teaching foreign languages by
grammar and advocated a method
based on the manner in which children
learn their native language in the
home.
Late last week members of the
Blaine School Alumni, Teachers' and
Parents' association, meeting in Der
rick's hall, Plymouth and Washington
avenues north, voted. against the site
for the proposed library branch at
Eleventh and Lyndale avenues north.
The discussion at times became heat
ed and personal and an early adjourn
ment waB taken. The chief objec
tions made to the site were that it
was too far from the congested dis
trict and too near Basset creek and
saloons. The action taken at thnt
meeting is similar to the resolution
adopted at a larger mass meeting held
earlier in the week at Sixth and Lyn
dale avenues north. Both meetings
serve as a protest against the con
templated action of the library board.
John F. Hanily, Edward Lamb, and
E. Wheeler were the leaders in oppo
sition to the proposed site and their
views prevailed
threats, Ivor surrenders to save the
boy, and is borne away in triumph by
the British to Fergus Castle, where
their commander, Colonel McFarlan,
is making his headquarters. Here
Ivor is tried by drumhead court-mar
tial. His fate is about to be sealed
until, with the aid of a celebrated
French alibe, who is visiting Father
John, it is discovered that Ivor is
Colonel McFarlun's brother, where
upon Colonel McFarlan orders his re
lease, and bears him away with him
to his home in England. Although he
is now a member of a noble family,
and surrounded by his new-found
relatives, Ivor is not happy. His
heart yearns for the simple ilsher-foli'
among whom he spent his happiest
years,, and meeting Kathleen in Eng
land and learning that she has al
ways loved him, even while believing
him to be the poor foundling, he re
nounces his new-found family, and
with his bride and good old Father
John, he returns to live with Mother
Kelway and the fisher-folk in "The
Isle o' Dreams." Mr. Olcott will in
troduce a number of new songs which
are among the most popular of all his
compositions.
