Frederick Warde and Louis James are now appearing cod have had but one object In view; and vfiat object has nothing to do with "art for art's sake." At any rate the gentlemen mentioned last Sunday who would rather J have failed with Tennyson than succeeded with the man who whitewashed Julia would have been awfully lonesome at the Boyd last night, and 'a hn'jse was full of people at that. Further, the authors of "Alexander the Great" doubtless fully agree with the less gifted but more frank author of another classic of the type which recently appeared In Omaha, that "you can't give It to 'em too raw." It seems a pity to Introduce so coarse an expression into even relative proximity with so com plete and satisfying a combination of lofty thoughta and cynical sophistry, clothed In such chaste and graceful garments of language as "Alexander the Great," but It embodies the conviction of a thoughtful observer so patly, that so long as It Is not The Bee's very own. It will be allowed to stand. For, despite its melodious mess. ures, Its rhetorical flourishes and plati tudinous passages, Its beautiful scenery and marvelous mechanical effects, so closely simulating nature that no Imagination Is needed to convince one the scene Is actual. "Alexander the Great" Is the cheapest sort of melodrama, and, really ought to make that foremost ot Macedonians send up protest from that region to which good Grecian heroes so easily found their way. One almost forgets . the crudity of the piece, the Inanity of . Its theme, and the mechanical effect of ' Its action. In the efforts of those masters of the ait. of elo cution and oratory, Mr. Warde and Mr. James. Mr. Warde assumes the role ot Perdlccas, prime minister of Macedonia un der Phillip and successor to himself under Phillip's son. It Is a combination of char acters, having something of almost every mt nf ,-raft Vnnvn tA drama or ro mance, even a few of the attributes of authenticated historical personages serv ing to flavor the blend. Mr. Warde gives it the most careful attention and lifts It from the cheap and tawdry as far as the application of his admitted ability as an actor may. But there are some things that even art can not do. Mr. James la cast as young Alexander, and he makes him a most robustious hero, one of those boys who get ths spot light and - the at tention of the wooden-handed brigade. , It affords him . very - little opportunity- tot ths exercise of his capabilities as an actor, and Is- colorless because the writers of the piece evidently could not grasp the truly dramatic element In- the - character of Alexander. Some effort Is made to mini mise thla failure In the emphasis laid on his great ambition, but It Is sadly warped by the more than equally apparent de termination to maintain Alexander's popu larity, even at the cost pf dramatic effect, The result Is merely, and can be, nothing else In the very nature of things, . melo drama. It Is bootless to here point out the numerous opportunities that, were missed by the writers, but the reader of Alexander's history, who saw the play. can easily supply many and without re ferring to the book. Only two of the supporting company are called upon for any great amount of ef fort. Miss Sumner, who has the part of Cleopatra, the se'eond wifs of Phillip, who wants ths throne for herself, moves all through the piece at the side of Mr. Warde, and shows herself a most .capable actress. Miss Bourne has several good opportunities as Roxana, the Egyptian wife the authors provide for Alexander, and makes the roost of them. Mr. Harris injects a little cynical humor Into ths action of the play as ths Egyptian prest In the second act- The staging of ths piece Is adequate and beautiful. For the first time an Omaha audience saw the electrio snow storm ef fect, and to say that It was pleasing Is a very mild way of expressing it. Both ths stars wars given a warm welcome, the enthusiasm of the audience being such aa to hava them out at the end of each aot. and - to reqnlre a most gracious speech from Mr. Warde at the close of the third act. At ths close of ths fifth act, where Alexander leads his men In ths asssult on Malta the curtain was raised several times to allow Mr. James to bow his ac knowledgement to .the delighted . specta tors. And then Mr. Nordln and his orches tra played "Hiawatha" so well that hs secured and responded to an encore. My mon having would be a Boutxt ' 7b m&k$ m$ hunger more, Sh&kespere, Macbeth, iv. 3.

PA 3 WEST SOTH ST.; NSW YOJaK ' for SaraK Bernhardt IN these progressive days, when actors and actresses are carefully measured by dramatists engaged to cut out plays for them, the task of fitting a play to a woman like Sarah Bernhardt would be a tolerably difficult matter, notwithstanding the artistic semblance attainable in the " fitting" system. She is the sort of woman who requires what the milliners, in their most' exuberant moods, call "a creation." Talents can be measured to order, and personality is a domi nating feature of the stage ; but there is a psychology in the charac ter of genius that cannot be arranged for mechanically before hand. It was an indisputable distinction that fell upon F. Marion Crawford a when he was asked, two years ago, by the great tragedienne, to write a play for her. ; .
