LONDON , May 0. In nearly every prcat
Amcrlcnn city wo tiavo sotno particular
locality constantly frequented during cer
tain hours of the day by actors iiront and
mall. Tho'casual passer HnRors curiously
within the region , Even ono least nccus-
tompd to striking city phases Is instantly
Impressed with the unusual character ot the
ndghbJrhood and with the manners ana
dress of Us frequenters.
Public- houses nf a cozy rather than n
sumptuous sort are characteristic of the
placo. Windows ubovo It uro filled with
Btrnngo costumes. Llttlo low windows
nna stilt tinier glass casss or receivers
hero end thcro display curious examples of
the wiginaltor's art. "Voico Training" can
bo secured up this dingy flight of stairs.
"A School of Elocution" will bo roaunau
through another dark entry way , The logon d ,
"Fancy Steps , " will nppajr where the stairs
hint of serious stumbling Instead , ftoxt tno _
roof of ono building "Pupils" will bo "Fit"

broken out upon every doorway directory.
And slcns of "Dramatic Agency , " where
the flnt and perennially succcsslvo looting
of actors U done , cluster llko beacons of
wreckers to untlco tlio veteran as well
as the youngest skipper upon the
nhonls of treuchorous draniallo seas.
In general and particular everything
needful to "tho profession"and many things
which ils members could safely eschew'uro
gathered In and about this strnngo llttlo
world within the great city. H is called
"Tho Uialto. "
Histrionic Cln s Distinction.
Our American "Klaltos" are more marked
In concentration and character thun these of
Euronpan cities. Thu is particularly true
In New York , In London , where are the
baunts of probably more actors than
exist In any other four or ilvo
of tbo greatest cities , tbero Is no
spot which exactly corresponds with the
American actors' "Utnlto , " except ono. That
ono is the greatest resort in the world for
music ball performers. It is just across the
Waterloo bridge from j the Strand , on tbo
Burro/ side ot London ! and Is called in local
parlance , "Poverty Junction. "
ButiDotweon tboso folk , who am called
"prossers" or "pros , " In the vernacular , and
the actors of London thcro Is nn ever 1m-
passable gulf. In our country there Is con-
Bldcrablo commingling and association ot
these elements or classes. This almost
wholly accounts for the characteristic groupIngs -
Ings of business and lounging forming our
"HIaltos. " Hero the actor not only scorns
the "pros" as ho would u tramp and will
bnvo none of him as a companion , but howill ,
drink no liquor , out no food , transact no busi
ness and frequent no thoroughfare or haunt
where the "pro" is permitted to come.
There are reasons for thU close drawing of
professional lines. An important one. is found
In the fact that for a very long time London
theatrical managers have sustained an abso
lute monopoly of all dramatic performances.
By law the proprietors of music halls are for
bidden to present any exhibition of a dra-
tcutlo nature. Their compensation Is In being
permitted to sell all manner of liquors bv
bands of bewitching barmaids ; of itself a
great source of attraction ana profit. To tbo
"legitimate" dramatic performer , any ono
who has appcarca In "tho 'alls , " from bis
standpoint ot otblcs , can by no possibility
ever become a genuine actor or attain to
his social standing.
Actor nml'Educated Gontlenmn.
On the other hand , you will seldom find an
English , Irish or Scottish actor who is not a
centlcman born and bred. .1 do not moan
that bo If always of the sccallod British
' gentry" stock. But I do mean that the
Block from which bo has sprung is usually of
the bcstquallty : that ho hp.K had the advan
tage of being well bred ; has been slvcnoxocl-
iont homo and school , and very often univer
sity training ; that , bo Is a reader , n student
and n traveler ; and that the best regime and
athletic sports have done for him , physically ,
what bl > education has done for him mentally -
tally , and bis unavoidable culture , off and on
the stage , bas done fur both bis ethics and
bis manners.
This is universal rather than exceptional.
Ho is thcroforo justly proud of his vocation.
Sucb names as these of Shakespeare , Kom-
blo , Garrick , Macroady and Matthews fur
nish endless pique and spur to his ambition.
Ills excellent social status keeps him in
touch with the best rather than the undo-
Mrablo elements. Ho Is well paid and cer
tain of cmploji incnt , If bo has ability and ex
perience ; and If hqjiossesses only the former ,
with some learning behind it , bis period of
apprenticeship Is ono of fair opportunity and
considerate treatment , Without leaving bis
homo and his daily baunts and work , ho bas
before htm the highest opportunities to
which an uctor can attain within the conllncs
of Londoa Itself. And bis every surround
ing , acccsslblo aid In bis profession , and.
oven in bis hours of relaxation , which bring
him the line friction of the brightest minds
of our time , ho is as an actor continually
unwltUnt'ly and per lorco battered and ira
proved.
KiiKlUh Actors' I'rltlo of Homo.
The latter is as true today as It was In
Shakespeare's time. And all this is why the
haunts of London actors diflcr from tno
baunts of American actors ; and why , also ,
their environment naturally produces the
iciest delineators , not of Intense and exag
gerated character and situations , as with
( ho French , and sorcowlmt with our Amer
ican school , but ot these fadeless good and
mellow comedies , dramas and tragedies
which appeal to the Intellect and heart.
rather than to sensation hunger , tbo nerves
Mid tbo passions.
These changeless conditions naturally give
London actors as a class but two places that
may bo regarded as tbolr real baunts their
homes ana tbolr clubs. The first of these
may seem to Americans an odd sort of ac
tors' retreat , for though wo have many
among ua who possess genuine homos , and it
It n good sign that their number Is increas
ing , thcro are too few actors who possess or
lock a homo. It Is different In London , ana
1 think them Is nothing on earth achievable
In which a London actor takes such manful
nna exultant prldo.
They are seldom grand affairs , it is their
great number and their sweet and good
homeliness which malic them remarkable.
The exigencies of provincial orofos-
ilonal travel ana frequent American
tours often render their continuous
occupancy impossible. Frequently the
Husband goes In ono direction and the
wife , If she bo an actress , In another. But
tbo abiding place IB Mecca to both , ana there
In always ioino uno to hold tbo belongings
together and train tbo llttlo ones against thq
totne-coimug.
A 1'rotty IMcture.
Tbo English actor hat a grand abhoronco
of a big ana showy home. 1 could print the
nuincs of scores whoso incomes would permit
thorn to Ilvo , llko many or our eminent the
atrical people. In approved West End luxury
In winter ana gorgeously nwoltor In summer
In tbolr own fashionable resort villas. The
llttlo homo , llttlo and snug and cheery , Is his
from choice. He hides himself In It , and Is
often moat ludtcrouo In his shifts to uvold
knowledge of Its coming to only sworn
IriouUs. This occasionally goes BO' for that
( .liases are assumed , that ho may bettor pro
tect himself from intrusion and espionage.
In this inlta of a homo ho is as nappy n
man t.s there Is In all the woi'ld. Ho can
roach out to and know Its motes and bound-
i.tles , , U IB usually , and moro honor to him
for It , In n pcrmunuiit and delightful bulta-
buloo from the prcsonco of many roistering
3ml cladsoma children. It Is full ot strungo
und nulrugroufi puts. It I * buried in vines , all
out llto winCowf. nnd vvlihln itl * a plethoric
cmiRcrvntory of ulunts and llowcra , Tbero

Tboro Is o harp , a zither , n guitar , a violin , or
, not "uiolaucholy" llute , and melody uud
song of the bomo-mado Kind seem to break
loota hero rather than como at "tho cuo" and
Jo order.
Above nil else thcro Is a wonderful sort
of all around housekeeping In these Joyous
llttlo homos from participation In which no
friend or guc t Is altogether debarred , nnd
occasionally under no circumstances ab
solved. It Is ns tnough the effort , assump
tion nnd repression of the slago world found
Its exact antithesis In this most precious of
haunts ; nnd that nil tboso things In homemaking
making nnd keeping which arc regarded as
Irksome bv ordinary folk , were to theao people
ple the acme of olcasuro und delight ,
lluror * anil Heroine * nt Home.
"A perennial lark , " ono fitly described it
to mo. And so It Is. With mingled feelings
of amazement nna delight , while enjoying the
roost gonlal entertainment I have over elsewhere -
where known , I hnvo assisted n Lady
Tenzlo nt dusting ; n Juliet nt digging

Ulcholiou at brewing such punches ns , I
have been tola by these who sipped them ,

The whole Uovont CJnrdon region , that
"Joyous region" as Tnnckcray called It ,
while not exactly a haunt of" actors , hns
been n sort of nctor-land for moro thanUoU
years. It Is now ns of old u region of line
old Inns , colTce houses , theaters , clubs , prin
ters and publishers , booksellers and cos-
turners. In these precincts , between Covcnt
Garden nnd the Stand , that greatest roaring
tide of humanity In nil tbo world , nnd UDOII
the Strand Itself , moru nctors will bo scon
comlntr , going or loitering than in any other
district of the great city.
After his piofcsslon and bis jolly llttlo
home' , the strongest attachment of the Lon
don nclors li given to his club. Every onu U
n member of from o'nu to a half do'zcn clubs ;
nnd these actors , us a class , moro than all
others of the liberal professions and
arts , have Inspired , developed and sus
tained that spirit of genial association of
men of talent which hns invcn London its
vast numbers of most splendid clubs ,
around which cluster the most precious of
historic and literary associations. It trny
bo truly sola that , from Shakspcara to
Dickens , not only the greatest nctors who
ever Jived , but most of the greatest writers
have been spurred and prompted Intu the
effort and nctlvltlcs which gave themselves
fame nnd the world its cleanest drama and
grandest literature , from this source nnd
out of this fruitful and fecund association.
Actors' Club Haunts.
Slnco "Will's , " "buttons' ' -Tom's" nnd
other famous cuffoo-housos and clubs of the
Queen Anne period , a history of the changes
and habitues of famous London clubs to
which nctors hnvo given the chief support
would almost bo n history of English men
of letters nnd literature. The actors' club
haunts of toJny chiefly comprise the
Garilck , Green Room , Savage , Arundcl ,
Lyric nnd Beefsteak clubs.
The latter unique llttlo club , which has its
homo over Tooto's theater , sprang out of tLo
Honorable Society ot Beefsteaks In the old
Beefsteak room of tbo Lyceum tua tar ,
which still exists , and is used by Irving for
his oxquUlto private dinner parties. The
Becfstc.ik over Toolo's is distinctive in being
a "one-room" club , and admitting no guests
whatever.
The Arundel has 350 to 400 members. It
was once exclusively literary nnd artistic.
Ambitious solicitors and umatcun of all
sorts uro now admitted , and its percentage
of legitimate actors is growing smaller.
The Lvrlcjhus a magnificent club honso In
Piccadilly , nnd with its entire appointment ! ) ,
Including n largo theater nnd concert hall , la
among the finest buildings for this purpose
In the world , ft also bus nn annex called the
Lyric club atBarnos-on-Tbnmes , from which
bout racing and other river fetes can bo wit
nessed. Tbo Lyric Is a dramatic und mus
ical club with nearly < J,000 members. Per
haps 10 per cent ot these are actors.
The well known buvugoclub , literary nnd
artistic , which interchanges privileges with
the Lotus club of Now York , has about 700
members. It had Its origin twenty-four
years ago In a puollo house near Drury Lane
theater , blnco then U has wandered to Hux-
cl's hotel , tbouco to the Suvoy nna finally to
Adelpbi terrace , overlooking the Thames.
About eighty of Its members , who are also
members of the Green Room club , are actors.
Tno Gnrriclr , In Garrick street. Uovent
Garden , venerable , rich , stately , mellow and
grand , has no membership limitation us to
profession. VVhllo perhaps no moro than
twenty-live actors nro nt pressnt among Us
members , although nil London managers of
any promlnenco are upon Its rolls , It un
doubtedly possesses the most valuable col
lection of sodvonlrs and paintings relating to
the stage and Its most famous representa
tives of any association or institution in the
world , '
The Actors' Club Par Excellence.
But the Green Room club , in Bedford
street , which bad its origin about fourteen
years ngo from disagreements in the Junior
Garrick and the Arunclol clubs , Is by all
odds the real actors'club of London. It Is
already one of the wealthiest of its small
'
club's nnd ewes Its grout success to tbo ad
ministration of its honorary secretary ,
George Donnchor , a gentleman of ample
moans , a gcnumo art lover with boundless
sympathies for actors nnd their profession.
Persons In nil the liberal arts are admitted
to membership ; but no active manager can
bccomo n member unless bo was formerly an
actor of coed standing. Pincro and Lcrd
Carton , dramatists , Furjcon , tbo author , nnd
Charles Dickens , son of tbo grout novelist ,
are among its members.
"Saturday tilcbts" nnd "Saturday house
dinners , " the latter splendidly served at but
i ) shillings und G pence , are the kindliest ,
brightest , mellowest nnd most goniul oc
casions of our time among men of heart nnd
brains. Gathered hero will bo Tound such
men ns Plnoro. Sant Matthews , Irving , John
Hnro , Royce Carlcton , Kendall , Paul Morrlt' ,
Wyndham , Charles Hnrtburv. Bancroft ,
Ferunndez , Bcorbohn Trdo , Ted Gardiner
nnd Henry Howe , the oldest actor on the
English stago.
In thousands of books are preserved tbo
true or apochryphal sayings of Garrick ,
Shcrdlan , Hood , Thackeray , Dickens and
men of their kidney , who gnvo the wino of
Ufa to literary London in tbo past. I bollovo
that within this very Green Room actors'
, haunt of the London of today wit and
repartee ns spontaneous , unctuous nod true
find as constant expression.
A certain Gwylin Crowo , musical com'
poser , and conductor at the Covent Garden
theater , is a terrible atheist , and never
loses opportunity to vent his spleen against
sacred things and beliefs. Not long ago at a
Grcon Room Saturday afternoon dlnnor bo
had no moro than finished a particularly
vehement diatribe against the genuineness
of Christ , when Henry S , Leigh , a brilliant
London back , after a moment's scribbling
sent to the table chairman and bad read the
following quatrain :
\Vo hoar In language highly splcotl ,
That Orowo does not approve of Christ ;
Thu tlilnir wo now ilcslru to know
Ik Mbother Ohrist approves of Urovro !

COMPARED WITH OMAHA.
School liullillngg In Eastern , Citlc Visited
ami Kxnmlnoil by Omahu Men.
Messrs. Euclid "Martin , H. B. Coryell and
Dr. W. S. Gibbs und their wlve"s returned
yesterday from a ten-days sightseeing
rip to Washington , Novy York and Boston ,
n which cities they largely devoted their
imo to inspecting school buildings and maters -
, ors connected with educational worlr.
The trip was not a junket nt
tbo expense of tbo school board ,
as tbo members went of their
own volition and at their own expense. In
speaking of their trip , Mr. Martin said :
"Wo learned ono thing pretty thoroughly ,
and that Is that you can't have anything in
the very best shnpo without paying well for
it. Wo oxpcct to put up a llrst class twelve-
room building hero for $30,000. but Boston
pays from $430,000 to $75,000 for buildings of
Lbnt size. They go to moro ex
pense In rendering their Interiors nttractivo.
They have more roomy halls and corridors ,
and also plan for a larfo assembly room In
each building , wboro all the pupils can meet
for general exercises , or for any purpose for
which it is desired to call them together.
That Is something that wo do not have : They
put in masslvo stone foundations that glvo
their buildings a Uno appearance , but they do
not make their exteriors particularly ornate ,
"Their manonl training rooms are Qttod
up with the bcstof everything from top to
bottom , and In all departments wo could see
that they were not niggardly In the expendi
ture of money , It was the same wny with
their streets. Wo saw sotno poor paying ,
thnugn not much of it. Tbolr stone paving
wa * much easier to ride over nnd nicer ap
pearing than ours. The blocks were all of a
uniform slzo , and so laid as to glvo a
smoother surface tbun wo bavo.
"Another thing that we noticed was the
eroat growth of Philadelphia nud Baltimore.
Wo ouly passed through , out there were
thousands of now bouses to bo soon In the
course of erection. Wo could not help but
see that manufacturing Industries were the
cause of It , nor could wo help realizing that
Omaha must have some of them II she is to
grow and prosper in tbo future. I saw
n.nny things that Interested mo , und which
on flying business trips hitherto made I bad
entirely overlooked , but I came back pretty
well satisfied with Omaha. "

It larcly falls lo the lot of the reviewer
to notice so exhaustive a work as the
"World's Fair Souvenir , " which ' has
been compiled with so much care by a
former resident of .Omaha , John D.
Jones. For purposes of reference , o
comparison nnd for general information
the work is u magnificent reflex of the
push und energy of n city that is the won
der of the world.
In its complin lion expense has not
been thought of , and the richness of its
Illustrations nf the World's fair build
ings , cuts of the men and women who are
directing to a suuccsstul issue what bids
fair to bo the greatest exposition of an-
clont or modern times , pictures
of the colossal business blocks that
stand at monuments to the enterprise of
their owners and builders , Is typical of
the "Chicago gait , " as the rush nnd
bustle of the great city by tbo inland sea
hns been described.
The book has boon arranged upon a
most comprehensive plan , the object of
the publisher being to give a complex
resume of what may bo scon in Chicago
in 1893 , and at the sarao time glvo the
n formation in a compact form , so that
the work may bo a valuable adjunct to
ho library and reading room. Its use
fulness will not end with the close of
, ho exposition , but on the contrary will ,
grow in value with years , for it is the
most perfect compendium yet issued of
an ovqnt which cannot fail to have an
nfluonco for many decades to como upon
, ill lines of art , literature and com
merce. A ? Mr. Jones says in the intro
duction to the work : "As an educator
this event will leave its impress upon
succeeding generations and boar fruit in
all realms of human thought , ingenuity
and progress. "
In addition to tWicomploto epitome of
, vhat has been d p'rf , is doing and will bo
done when the fair' opens , it comes to
the general publfc at a most opportune
.imo. It brings' b'bforo the American
people the forces 'lliat a-o actively at
work to make the * Exposition a success
worthy of a nutionrlhat ! in a little ovorja
century has , from nothing , builcloJ the
mightiest ropublicL'of earth. It not only
ives full page a t/ypo illustrations and
descriptions of the principal buildings
of previous world's fairs nnd all the
buildings of the pmsont World's Colum ,

and biographical skotclio's of its

When the veterans of the Grand Army
of the Republic assemble in Washington
next September for their annual reunion
the blood in their veins will be quick
cnod by the sight of their old corps
badges , under which they inarched
from 1801 to 1805 , depicted in flowers
and decorative plant ? . Under the direc
tion of Government Landscape Gardener
Brown , these badges are to boorlicd
out in floral designs on the beautiful lawn
south of the pension ofllco. There will
bo forty flower beds , twenty-nine of
which will bo devoted to depleting in
flowers the various designs representa
tive of the dlllcront corps badges. The
most conspicuous or central design will
bo the Grand Army of the 'Republic
badge , with flng and pendant star ,
crosRcd cannon and musket , worked out
carefully Inflowers , that will duplicate
nil the original colors precisely. The
bed is to bo sixty feet long and fifteen
foot wide. Some of the other de
signs are more simple , but others
are very intricate , and the artistic skill
of the gardener. will bo taxed to the
highest degree. It-will bo no easy task
to present in flowers faithful represen
tations of the itbf ) ) > U circle of the First
corps , the trefolliQC the Second , the diamond
mend of the thivflw'itho equilateral triangle -
anglo of the Fourth , the Maltese cross
of the Fifth , Uuw Greek cross of the
Sixth , the crosscut and star of thd
Seventh , the cross7 anchor and cannon
upon tlio shield jbr/ho Ninth ; the four
bastion fort of uiri/rnnth. tlio acorn "of
the Fourteenth , Hno cartridge box , with
its grim motto , j'jiTorty rounds , " made
famous by General Logan's Fifteenth
corps ; tiio pretty shield ot the Twenty-
third , and the crossed sabers of Short *
dan's cavalry conji. Many of the beds
will rcqulro ! | 3co modeling , the
ground being fitted to conspJcuoualy
show the epocwl' design above the
field of the wvSpo. In this way
cannon , cnrtridjWr DOXCB , anchors and
eagles in the various' badges will bo dis
tinguishable , the 'earth being raised in
relief above tho''bnekground ' , filled in
cloBoly with plants that , by their suita
ble color , will heighten the effect. It is
intended to have those military and his
torical designs in the various parks and
publio reservations throughout the cap
ital city , but .the principal exhibit will
bo in Judiciary square.
