Chief I'oinl * . nf Pollfk-nt 'Interest.
In the elections which .tako ulacn
throughout the country to-day ( hero are
many points of interest , but among thrm
there arc only a few which will chiefly
command the attention of politician ! * gen
erally as bearing most largely upon the
futiiro of politic * . Ono of thi-iu is the
mayoralty contest in > uw York , which
is not only regarded witlt lively concern
in this country , but as well in Kngland ,
tiio London press having recently given
extended consideration to it. It has been
conceded ever since the nomination ol
Hewitt and Uooscvelt that tlio importance
of the result of tills buttle was more than
local. It would certainly be . u in case oi
the election of either George or Kos-ovolt ,
In thu former case tlto. ollect would un
doubtedly bo lo give a great impetus to
the labor movement in politics , nnd it la
not dilllcult to sec what the consequence *
of this would be to the old party organi-
/ations everywhere. With snrh eiioour
agcmcnt it is not to be doubled that labor
would unite to make a light for victory
on a broader Hold , and probably become
a formidable power in the national
struggle of two years lionet1. A republi
can victory would greatly cncounigo
that Darty throughout Iho country.
It would cive most sitb.'tanlial
ground for hope of republican success in
the state in the presidential contest. It
would dhido the control of the political
machinery.and in the division the repub
licans would really liavo the best of it.
Democratic .HUCCOMS in New York is im
possible without the full democratic vote
of the metropolis , anil Hint cannot bo de
pended upon unless Ihu imiuen.so pulron-
ago of the olty is in democratic haniK
There is no other city in the union with
such a numerous body of voters whoso
controlling principle is to act witli Ihu
parly in power. A republican adminis
tration in New York city would rediu-e
the usual democratic majority there quite
twenty thousand. The election of Hew
itt would be in the regular order , and
therefore would exert a less general in-
HUOPCO. yet it would not be wholly with
out ellect in strengthening democratic
expectations.
Massachusetts i ? a point of command
ing interest. The republicans ought to
be suceuj-sfiil , but victory for thorn is not
assured. The argument that their can
didate for governor owed his nom
ination solely to the circumstance
of his wealth has not boon without
weight , and besides there are di athiiL-d
clomenUj in the party that have disturbed
its harmony and had : i depressing intlu-
once. While there is no doubt popular
confidence in Mr. Amos , llierc is no very
earnest interest or sympathy respecting
him. Andrew , tiie democratic candi
date , however , commands a good deal of
both , and isn't inferior to his opponent
in popular confidence. There may be
some value in his mime , though probably
that is not very great ; but he unqncMmn-
ably lias the interest of the younger olass
and of those people who think it propur
and wise to advance Ihe worthy ambition
of young men in politics. Ho will not
perhaps got the full democratic vote , for
the reason that lie has boon identified
with the democratic party only two years
and made the acceptance of the nomina
tion conditional upon the endoisnmenl
by the convention of civil scrvioo reform ,
which offended a givat many Massachu
setts democrats oftho Jacktonian kind.
But it is not unlikely Hint ho will draw
enough republicans and independents to
make up for the democratic loss. The
danger to the republican cause is in a
dimished vote , which the lack of interest
in thu cnndidato foreshadows.
The result in Pennsylvania is a matter
of great interest. It has been conducted
with extraordinary vigor and y.oal , with
the tariff question as thu foremost issue
on the part of the republicans , while thu
democrats have in ado unll-monopoly
their chief battle-cry. The indications
are that the republican organization i.s
compact and harmonious , and it has had
the strong help of Senator Sherman and
Mr. Blaine , which has served to give in
creased proruiucuco and significance to
the campaign. So far as tlm declaration *
of principles of tlio two parties in the
state are concerned , there is really nol
much to cheese between thorn. Both
favor a protective 'tariff , and both de
mand the rigid oxccution of the laws
asainst monopoly. But the democratic
cause is heavily handicapped by the fact
that the work of the convention was
done according to the direction of Ran
dall , and there are thousands of demo
crats in Pennsylvania who are tired ol
his rule and will repudiate it. Tno tem
perance vole is cxpoctcd to bo consider
able , and will probably bo drawn most
largely from the republicans , as .usual ,
but the loss in this direction trill bo more
than balanced by the dissatisfied demo
crats who will not vote their ticket.
There appears to bo no reason to doubt
republican success in Pennsylvania by a
largo majority.
An Important OcolNlon.
The decision of the Supreme Court ol
the United States rendered last week in
the case of the Wabash , St. Louis & Pa.
citic railroad company , plaintill's in error ,
against the people of tlmstatoof Illinois ,
i.s of the highest importance , The decis
ion was in favor of the railroad , and re.
versed the decision in tlm ease of the 11-
HnoiH supreme court. Tlio Jaw of Illinois
forbids the charging of an equal or
greater .sum for n short haul than for a
font ; haul , and this statute is declared to
bo uncoiKStitutioniil when applied to
transportation that is partly within and
partly without the stalo. The Waiwh
railroad contracted on tiio same day to
transport a curtain amount of freight
from Peoria to Now York for 15 cents a
hundred pound ! ) and a certain amount of
the same class of freight from Oilman to
New York for i5 ! conls a hundred pounds ,
the distance of iho latter haul being
ulglily-six miles shorter than Iho former.
Suit WHS brought acaiiiBt the lailroad for
violating the law of UUiioU , and the su
preme court of that state hold , while di -
claiming : \uy right ou tlio part of tlm
btato lo regulate mter-Mato commerce ,
that as the transaction was partly within
the state nail partly without it , the
fitateJi might ascertain whether Micro
was dUcriminalion ugainat Oilman
ou so much nt iho haul as was within the
Ktatn , .nnil further that AS U was a trans
action part of which was unquestionably
uinler Illinois jurisdiction , and the rest of
.it had never boon legislated- by congress -
gross , therefore the slatt ) could legislate
regarding | t , The Illinois court based its
opinion in part on the dcolMon of the supreme
premo court of the Unitnil. States iun-
dorod several yearn agci in tiio CHSO c-.f
Muim u aint the lUiuois Central , which
allowed llho slate witlo ( a'tttuilo fbr , action
in casoa which , though subjcci lo con
gressional action , iiad 'never bcori fog'lS'
lated on by congress ,
The supreme court decision held that
Iho shipment : ! from Pcorla and Oilman
must bo regarded as a tihit , like continu
ous vnyaircs of a steauior , and that tho.v
wore intor.stalo commerce , which the
state is barred by the constitution from
regulating , even if congress does not
legislate on tt. The view presented was
thai if it were ntlomplcd lo apply to
Iransporlalion through an entire series of
slates the principle maintained by the
Illinois court , anil each one ol the stales
or of half a do/on slates shall attempt to
os-tabli. li its own rates of transportation ,
its own methods to prevent discrimina
tion in rates , or to permit it , the
deleterious influence upon Ihe free
dom of commerce among tin
states and upon the transpor
tation of good ? through these stales can
not be ovor-ostimated. Th ! . species ol
regulation is one which must be , if
established at all , of a general and na <
tional rlmraulur , and cannot bo safolj
and wisely cnmmlllcd lo local rules anil
local regulations. It is n regulation ol
commerce that should bo done only bv ;
the congress of the United States. A
dissenting opinion 'concurred in nv the
ohiof justice and two of the justices hold
that in the absence of regulation by congress -
gross the slate doe * not lose its power to
regulate the charges of its own railroad ;
in its own territory simply heeauso the
goods or persons transported have bumi
brought from or are ilesti ncd to a point
beyond the .state borders ,
Iti-uiot doubled thai tint very general
popular view of this question will con
cur with the opinion of the minority of
the court , which is virtually inline with
the decision in the Aliinn caseupon which
the Illinob court largely relied In mak
ing uj ) its decision. Thai former deci
sion was a coiieiisiion of the rights of the
stale in this matter , popularly believed
to I ; * last and necusMiry , which are
denied by this last decision , ot which it is
observed that it is astep considerably in
advance of any previously taken by the
-Mipromo corn-Lin the direction ot expand
ing the power.-'of the fedora ! government
and ivslrietttig within lliuir narrowest
limit Iho powers of the stalo. govern
ment. The effect of the derision will of
i-our. < e be to destroy the authority that
has boon exorcised by legislatures and
railroad commissions in regulating the
rated of freight ami faro on goods and
passengers , except as' to transportation
wholly within a slate , leaving the power
of regulating rates oi inter-slate transpor
tation entirely with the railroads. It is
therefore a deoKive and important vic
tory for the railroads , but it is one that
ought tt > result in s-eeuring speedy and
effective leirislatioii on Iho subject from
congress.
A Final Appeal.
The campaign has practically closed.
Tiio work on the phittorm and through
the press for good government and hon
est candidate ? I * now to be followed i > y
tlio linal biiltlu at the polls The issues
oi Iho canvass are made up ami the people
ple are to give judgment through the
ballot box. Lot n.s review brietly what
those issues aro. Citizens of the Firdt
district are to decide between two candi
dates for congress. The republican nom
inee is a notorious politician , whoac general -
oral reputation for trickery , treachery
and corruption is so flagrant that , his
be.-4 frioniN have made no pretense of
defending it. There is not a republican
with whom Church Howe has boon asso
ciated who would place the slightest de
pendence on his word or repose confi
dence in his pledge. For twelve years
his record has boon one of treachery and
deceit , cunning and political blackmail.
Hit has been a member of a. half a do/en
polilal parlies and has sold each out in
turn when it bulled his interests to do so.
The faithful fool' of consolidated mo
nopoly , ho has helped to rivet the
corporation manacles upon tlio hands of
every merchant , every working man ,
and every producer in the state. Ho
ha * prostituted the olliccs with which Mo
has been honored to his own
huso ends , and now boasts
of a comfortable competence wrung
from the hard earnings of noighborrt , ex
tracted from the bank accounts.of threat
ened cili/.ons and communities and ex
torted by political blackmail from inter
ests menaced by his unholy methods ,
His opponent is a reputable nnd honor
able business man of this city. Ten
years ago a clerk , John A. McShano has
risen to his present position by hard labor ;
and the wise invcsUmmt of inlicirilod
wealth. His record i ? that of a clean ,
far-dighted and enterprising man of
business. Ills life linn been passed among
us and his record is open for inspection.
Who can doubt in making a decision be
tween the two candidates.
Two legislative tickets are offerodto the
voters of Douglas county. Each has boon
nominated to carry out certain po.ltclcs on
three questions , These questions are :
The senatorial election , tlio prohibition
problem and municipal reform. Voters
are called upon to decide which will mores
fully answer ihu requiromunts and meet
the wants of Douglas county. Tlm repub
lican ticket is h'-adod by those sterling
biiiiiiiefi.j men and staunch advocates of
Omiilia'.s intorcslji , Goo , W. Liningor and
Bruno Tzsclmok. Every candidate
u pledged against prohibition
and most urn committed to the election
of Senator Van Wyck , All will work and
vote for tin amended charter HUted ! to ( hu
needs of Omaha. Several of thu republi
can nominees liavo had previous legisla
tive experience. The democratic ticket
is the wnakesl ever put up in these parts.
Its weakness would bo a bar to its ef
ficiency in the light against prohibition
and In the slrug lo for a now charter.
No matter how favorably some of its
members may bo Inclined towards Sen
ator Van Wyck , they cannot enter a re
publican caucus to sueuro his election.
Bublnt'bS men , owners of laigro real es
tate interests and friends of General Van
Wyck are all interested in the election of
thu republican legislative ticket.
To TliQUirul ] Vote.ru
A secret cirrular , directed to thought
ful voters , has been mulled to every reg
istered volcr in the city , over the slgna
lure of "Independent Committee. " This
thoughtful committee consists chiefly , if
not entirely of n yDting aristocrat , who
has inherited his father's and his grand
father's money , -but not their br.lins.
Before ho atriutncd the role ot the rood *
cm Atlas , .with tliu idea that ho was
proslestined to carry the world on. his
shoulders , he was glud to avail himself
of tub .good will , friendship and iufluen.ce
of the But : and Its editor. lie-was anx
ious and willing to have his nanio on
( lie Ko'owato.r ticket in tlio Fourth ward
as a tle'logate to the' county convention
it-hen the national campaign was pend-
inc. Ho stood on the lloor side by sidr
with Hosowalen and battled with him
against Thurston and his cohorts. When
he. was a cand.uato for the council
against Beeliol lip again had the aupporl
of Ko.sowater in the republican caucus ,
But when Boehcli was nominated the Bin
pave Iho rcpubKb.in candidate its earn
csl support and ifs bdltor worked for him
at the p'oll * . A1' ypnr ago last spring
when this "thoiighlful mugwump" was
nominated by the republicans tor conn
oilman tlio support ol this paper was
very gratifying to him. Bui
there oamo a change. The "thought
fill independent" became an cdltoi
and took il inlo his head to achieve fanu
with the pen as well as by the chattel
mortgage , He rallied forth with a pomp
ous prospectus , in which he promised li
elevate the standard of journalism in
Omaha by keeping out all personal con
troversies , planting his Hag upon the
battlements of high moral ideas anil
scorning to belittle himself or his papot
with nelly quarrels and abuse of otlioi
editors. Tlio performance fell shntt ol
the promise almost from the first day.
The "thoughtful young man" has de
voted more time and space to llosowatei
and his paper than to all other question- !
put together. Ho has actually gene in
sane on wiping out Itnsuwater , and wi :
have borious fears for his recovery if tin :
"thoughtful voters , " whom he advises to
vole lor Campbell as the safest , ablest
and best man tor Douglas * county , .should
pocket his tickets and vote for the othei
man.
TIIK president has issuud his procla
mation designating thu day Thursday ,
November ! > 5 for Iho observance of
Thanksgiving in ample time to enable
every ono to make due preparation for
the festival occasion for such it has become -
come in modern practice. In the ma
jority of American homes the sumptuous
dinner is the matter of chief interest and
consideration on Thanksgiving day , in
contrast to the oharaeler given it by ila
Now Kngland founders , with whom iho
occasion was ono of earnest and pro
longed religions devotion , to the subordi
nation of all other matters. Nowadays
a great many persons not only do not
have the time , by reason of the exactions
of added domestic duties , which must bo
performed a good deal bettor than usual ,
to observe the day in its true spirit , but
the extraordinary demands upon them
arc not conducive to thankfulness. Toil
ing beside a superheated stove , watching
the progress of the baking turkey , breath
ing in tlm iiot air from Iho oven , worry
ing over the steaming pudding , with all
the other perplexing details of the big
dinner , do not contribute to that peace
of mind and equability of temper which
are necessary to epablo one to feel grate
ful. Nevertheless , it is a most merito
rious holiday , worthy of being preserved
and universally honored by the Ameri
can people.
IT is a very cheap and moan device
which thu domooratic congressional com
mittee adopted to evade the civil service
regulation prohibiting political assess
ments of govurtnmfrrt clerks , in soliciting
them to purchase the "campaign book'1
issued by the committee under an im
plied threat that if they do not thu fail
ure to do so will bo recorded against
them to their disadvantage. Even if the
book were not for tlio most part a tissue
of misrepresentations , tlio scheme woulil
be reprehensible. The committee charge
a dollar for this cooked up.statement pro
fessing to show the number and extent ot
defalcations under republican adminis
trations , which our Washington corre
spondent s.iys can bo had at any second
hand book stall for thirty cents. Such a
method of obtaining political contribu
tions may not bo unlawful , but it is quito
as much a robbery as direct assessments ,
and of the two plans of mulcting the
latter is the less unworthr.
TUB republican legislative ticket es
pecially commcndsitsclf to businessmen.
It commends itself first because it is
largely composed of successful men of
business , familiar with the needs of
Omaha and pledged lo worlc for her in
terests. Much of the future prosperity
of this city depends upon the legislation
of the coming session. Tlm charter is to
bo amended for the extension of the city
limits. Changes must bo made to afford
us increased police protection. The
ridiculous two mile limit must bo abolished
ished ami revenue reform secured. The
volume of business transactions and the
values of realty will hang on tlio work of
the Douglas delegation.

Strength for to-day Is all that wo need ,
As thevo never will hu a to-morrow ;
For to-monovv will prove but another to-day :
With its measure of Joy and borrow.

With much .sail and grave persistence ,
And wait and watch for a crowd of Ills
That as yet have no existence' . '
Strength for to-day ; what a precious boon
Kor earnest souls who labor , ca

To the needy friend or neighbor.
Strength for to-day , that the wnarv hearts
In the battle for right may quail not ,
And the eyes hedlmmeil by bitter fears
in their search for light may fail not.
Strength for to-day on Iho down hill track
Kor the travelers near the valley ,
That up , far up on the other Mile ,

May happily shun temptation ,
And build irom the rise to the sot of the

On a strong and sure foundation.

To practice forbearance sweetly :
To scatter khul words and loving deeds ,
Still trusting in Cod completely.

Jjost Creeks In South Carolina.
C'/ifcnr/ii / Trlliunr.
One of the items in the river and har
bor bill that was passed last session
authorised tiio war department to exam
ine .and survey Mingo creek and ClarK's
creek , in south Carolina , and appropri
ated $75,000 for that purpose. Lieuten
ant F. V. Abbott accordingly was sent to
that Ktato to make the rovnircd examina
tions. After an absence of several weeks
bo wrote , under dale of the 10th inst. , to
Congressman Aiken , from Charleston :
I am required to make an examination of
Clark's criwK , S. 0. , and Mlngo creek , b. C.
A fter careful search I have been unnblo to
determine satisfactorily tlio location of these
creeks , and If von would be so klml as to let
mo know ilitiinltely where the creeks referred
to in the net can bo found it will enable mete
to make Ilio examination.
The congressman was as much in the
fog as the lieutenant and sent the letter
to the News and Courier , with the follow
ing remarks appended :
Since 1 lirst entered congress yrjir after
year 1 reluctantly voted for the fiver and
harbor bill as presented from the committee
for approval by tlio house , nnt bcenu&c I dis
approved reasonable appropriations tor the
improvement of our harbors nnd national
streams , but bimply because annually thcro
" Creek" other
wasa"Mingo or some Mich
"niggar In ttio woodpilo" In every one of
them that would shovel money into so mo prl-
varo Individual's pocket , as J believed , rather
than deepen the bed of a stream that floated
our products to the sea. But 1 thlnic tlm In
closed letter presents a case that does not be-
IDIIK to the Third district , nnd was certainly
novcr presented by mo , for I do not remem
ber ever liaving asked a dollar of appropria
tion for this or any other creek ; and there
fore L suggest that the engineer must co
probing about In some other section of the
state less hilly than tlio Third district hnl'ou !
ho will llnd his Mlngo creek , or , quite us
likely , his Clark's creek , Into who dry bed
water must be dlpnuil fronr elbowuoie to es
tablish a commercial stream.
The lieutenant imulu further search for
Clark ami Mingo crooks at the News and
Courier ollico , where there is a full line
of state maps , but they could not bo
loiind , nor has anyone in South Carolina
to this date been able to locate Ilium.
The person hns yet to bo found who has
ever heard of them. Meanwhile tlio
money wails in the treasury for their
improvement. Lieutenant Abbott may
orcant/.o an expedition to go probing for
llioiu , or ho may advertise and oll'm- re
ward for them , It may be that they are
ditches that are only full once a year , or
possibly I hero nviy have boon such creeks
and the soi mic disturbances have swal
lowed them up. I'orhaps they Imvo evaporated -
orated or the.lr noiwio has dried up and
they hnvo Bonked into tlio ground , in
which event geologies mi ht bo able to
identify their formur clmum-l * by
wrinkle.s in the earth and remains of
vegetation , young bullheads and poly-
wogs. It is ratlio)1 ) distressing that tlu-fo
creeks should have gel away buforo the
money could bo expended upon them.
It is no uncommon thing for the
inonoy to disappear , b'.it when the duck
creeks and goose ponds themselves
liet to disappear ! ! ' . ; . ' in one slate it , begets
horrible .suspicions that others may be
come addicted to the sumo habit. Would
it not bo wnl ! bntori ) probing the whole

LCOCS any further or Lieutenant Abbott
wastes valuable time in miinnuming a
id en ti lie pos-so and raising thu hue and
iry. : There is. .sufficient disturbance

mil to go round probing it in blind

BARRETT AND BOOTH
How Ono Great Tragedian Mntiagc
Anotlior ,
GEORGE H. BOKER'S NEW PLAY
Itonlh nnil Harrctt ( o Ajipcnr To
Kthor Next Benson.
riilhuiolpliia Titnos : Thorc was a ta {
on tlio door of Lawrcnoc Uarrott's pn
vato parlor at the Hotel I.afayctto.TImM .
< lay morning at 1) ) o'clouk , anilotm of tin
colored bull-boys entered witli a toloirran
in Ills hand. Harrctt was sipping a cti ]
of Krono.lt oofloo. lln cl his cup on tin
lltllo. Uiblo before him , tore open tin
brown envelope covered with liig bhn
letters and a pietttre of atncsscnger boj
running his Icg off , and than the actor' :
brow knitted for an instant , relaxed , am
in a jiffy ho had answered the telegram
H was from Kdwin Hoot It , who Is play
ing tins week in Chicago. JJarrett Is hi ;
manager and besides acting six nights r
week and two matinees lie has hi ;
own company to look after am
Hooth'.s too. Half an hour later anothei
telegram came and that also was ijineklj
answered. Then Mr. Harrutt began U
open a pile of letters that had just conn
by post. Ho read about twenty lotion
qniokly and by noon ho had written t'O'
plie.s to a dozen of them. Then he hat
breakfast and at one o'clock ho was oil
to the Chestnut Street opera house wen.
ho. conducted a rehearsal of Gooiyo II
liokor's now play. At four ' tlio actoi
was off for a walk to Fairmont 1'ark anil
back. He .seldom drives. Dinner at IKK
and at T0 : ! ! he was back in his tlres-iinj :
room at the opera house. At midn ! < rht
lie was walking to Ins hotel with ( i corgi ;
II. Hokor , after having ; played the "Mer
chant of Venieu" and " "David Garrick. "
That was the day's work , not a liwsy min
ute from the time he col up until he went
to bed at middight. llu rises every morn
ing nl 00 : ! ! and goes through about the
saino programme every day. Ho doesn't '
drink nor smoke ami always retires as
soon as Ins night's work is done , be
lieving in doing Ins thinking and mana
gerial work in day time. Air. Barrett ,
besides this ha * found time in the rtost
two or three months to write biographies
of Maercady , Forest and Kdwin ilootl : ,
which will shortly appear in the fourth
volume of "Lives ot the Actors. "
llooth was visiting Uarnitt at tlio hit
ter's country place , at JCohassott , in the
summer of. ' 85 , It wan a hot , lay.y day
and thiv t\yo tragedians , who liavo been
very intimate since they were quite
young and inexperienced 'actors , sat on
Barrett's porch and the conversation
drifted into shop talk and Booth com
plained that harsh criticisms had been
made about his company's support.
"The trouble ia , " said' Barrett , ' 'there's
lee much time spent in managing yon
on the outside and not enough attention
paid to stagu managing. "
"Will von try managing nieV" said
Booth , smiling.
Q-'L will , "said Barrett.
It was settled then and there , and Bar
rett iinmcdiaoly selected a good com
pany for Booth. Since then ho has
managed the tragedian poi > onally and
with the aid of several lieutenants.
"I picked out men and women whom I
know to be earnest workers , " said Mr.
Barrett Thursday. " ' knew that Booth
himself was all right , that all that was
necessary was to aii'iounco his coming
and that the principal part , was to sec to
the players who were to support him. 1
liavo watched that part of Booth's tour
this season carefully. Ho is haying an
unusually brilliant season , which ex
tend over forty weeks , from Maine to
California. Ho is playing with great
xvarinth and writes mo enthusiastically
on his successful season. "
It is safe to say that Kdwin Booth and
Lawrence Barrett will be soon all of next
.season on the same stajjje in tlm same
plays. Mr. Barrett declined to say posi
tively that IKJ and Booth would play to
gether. lie admitted Unit he and Booth had
been thinking about it , but that the plans
had not developed , into a certainty. A
frifiid of Mr. 'Barrett's , howovor.saidUial
the two great tragedians would begin
their sejisons toirotlier next year in New
York ; that the largest and best company
ever brought Unrollicr would .support
them , ami that the prices would be
about double the regular rates of
admission. Jt is known that Mr. Barrett
has already been looking the theatrical
tield over and notinjj with his mind's cyo
actors whom hevill probably secure if
the Koiicmo is carried out. As to the suc
cess of the undertaking Mr. Barrett had
little lo say , pro tor ring not to talk about
plans that haven't thoroughly matured.
lie is satisfied , however , that the under
taking would be a financial success , and
that a . ' .eason of forty weeks could be
played in tlio principal cities to big
houses.
GKOHCK U. UOKEK'S ' NEW I'J.AV.
Mr. Barrett is very much in love witli
George II. Bokor's now play. "C.ilitylos" '
The frocino is laid in Spain , just aflor the
expulsion of the Moor.s from Granada , in
tlio lif I cuntli century. Barrett , of course ,
plays the -rJo role , and hn says it is even
a better play than Mr , Bokor's creation
of "Franoesca rtl Uiinlni. " The com
pany liavo just begun rehearsing it , and it
will he rehearsed every day for the next
o.ight weeks. It wilt bo produced for the
first limn \Viishinuton in thooarly part
of December , and will bo played hero for
thi ! lirst time next February.
"Why don't I play it here for Ilio jlrsl
lime ? " said Mr , Bam-lt. "Bceausn a
nhiy has to produce iUolf. I wouldn't
think of producing a play until every
part has been thoroughly rehearsed down
to Ilia most minor cliaracUir. Eight
weeks of rehearsing will make my com
pany familiar with their parts. Then I
shall 1m vo no fear of the play going
smoothly. 1 would rather rehearse It
for a year than run tlm risk ol iv single
hitch on the first night. "
Mr. Biirrott was asKed about the rising
generation of juiloi'M.
'Ut'rt hard lo tell about a new nctor. "
ho said "A great tragmiian may spring
r.p in om > night. I cannot toll you how a
great actor becomes a grunt actor. Of
course , it's Hindi' and hard work ami a
eombinution of things , but how tlm world
( lulls him out I don't know. He bouomes
great suddenly. "
Mr , ( ioUliniii. Barrett's leading man ,
was asked :
"Is Biirrott a strict stage manager ? "
"Yes , tlie striotost 1 over saw. and it's
all the better for tlio company and Ilio
play. Ho snes to every tdng ! , and const ) .
