THERE are few character In th
literature of the stage mora ap

than Nora Helmer In Henrtk Ib

human qualltle It has long been a con
tention that a consistent stag presen

Naximova's Nora, a given at the Helllg
yesterday, and again last evening, ab
solutely and forever disprove such a
commonplace. By presenting the char
acter simply and . untheatrlcaJly
throughout, thereby preserving Its In
tegral glrllsbness. thl gifted young
Russian artist has kept the thread of
character consistency unbroken to the

she has become wife and mother while

Naximova give us Nora as an anoma
ly of mingled cleverness and childlike
simplicity, great virtues. of. petty
faults, deep searching lo;U and per
sonal passions and prejudices, warm af
fection and cold Indifference, boastful
mendacity and rich sincerity, all rec
ognisable trait In human nature, and
which, combined aa they are In Nora's
temperament, make a type familial" to
many, despite the abnormal conditions
under which It la shown.
The awakening of Nora cornea when
ehe I forced to match her truth
agalnet th world truth: to pit ber
Ideal of love against aa Ideal that Is
wholly self-centered; her sense of right
and wrong against a law. that takes no
reckoning of motives; her spirituality
against the materiality of the conven

her doll s house. And after this awak

not capable of the self-sacrificing af
fection she has believed bim capable of
feeling, the Nora of Naximova make
th difficult transit from th "singing
lark" and happy little "squirrel" stag
to the human stage with no sense of
changed Individuality.
Naalmova's treatment of the final
scene with Helmer is admirable In Its
utter simplicity, and its quiet misery
of heart-breaking disillusion. She give
ua no scenes of violent emotion, no
familiar pose of sorrow, no thrills or
hock In her portrayal. When shs
roes from Helmer's horn it is don
naturally, quietly, with neither anger
nor grief.

beyond ber, trier 1 another to be

"I must try to educate myself, sh

that Is why I am leaving you."
To re-read the play alter seeing Na
ximova s performance Is to realise that
she has missed not a single Intellectual
triumph. Her Nora attains an artlstlo
perfection of detail that completely per
suades ua of the human truths In the
character she Impersonates. f

of the opinion that no further recount
will be necessary or demanded by th
people of Portland.
The substance of this report will bs
embodied In a statement, which Mr.
Durand will Issue when he makes pub
llo Portland'a population. This an
nouncement, however, will not be made
until Hester's report and corrected
tabulations are examined by experts of
the Census Bureau to see that no Injus
tice has been done.
Few Prosecutions Likely.
Although, as a result of Mr. Hester'
work, several thousand names have
been stricken from Portland's list, not

the special agent In discussing hi re

pervisor Beach, who had charge of the
taking of Portland'a census, used every
reasonable caution and he will be
given a clean bill by Mr. Durand.
In his report. Mr. Hester goes Into
details aa to bow Portland's census waa
padded. However, hia. correction will
not necessarily stand as the true popu

If bis report does not In every Instance
bear out bla conclusions. Mr. Durand
will give bla personal attention to th
final revision.
Hunt Will Not Be Called.
Should It develop upon careful, ex
amination, that any of Mr. Hester's
conclusions are of questionable correct
ness. Statistician Hunt, now at Ta
coma. will be asked to visit Portland
for a further checking up. Mr. Du
rand aald, however, that he did not
think this would be found necessary.
Contractor are responsible in a
measure lor th name to which Mr.
Hester maintains Portland la not en
titled. He declares that one Portland
contractor furnished an enumerator
vith a list of 300 men employed by
bim. who, be held, should be Included
In the city's population. These work
men were found to have been employed
outside of Portland and none of -them
resided in th city wben th census
was taken. Therefore, all of the 100
names were eliminated.
Montana Crew Counted.
Other contractor made similar re
ports to enumerators, one man giving
to an enumerator name of members
of a crew employed by blm In Mon-
An enumerator In th business dis

the payroll of tbe Standard OH Com

In several instance boarding-bouse
keeper made false reports to enumer
ators, giving the name of fictitious
person as their boarders. Mr. Hester
found apartment-houses In Portland
having two atreet entrances, the occu
pant of which were enumerated twice.
One enumerator, a woman, counted the
DeoDle on both sides of a street form
ing the boundary of ber district, wben
she should have counted but one.
One example of Portland's mistakes
furnished by Mr. Hester Is that of an
enumerator who, after bla canvass was
concluded, was banded a bunch of slips
supposed to contain names be over
looked la going bis rounds. He was
surprised to find his own name on five
separate slips.
In making his revision of Portland's
figures. Mr. Hester struck from th
original returns approximately 100
names for every one he added. Indicat
ing that the enumerators overlooked
very few bona fide residents. He says
he discovered no concerted effort on
th part of enumerators to pad their
returns and very few enumerators
were found to have willfully falsified
their report. Of the Inaccuracies at
tributed to Intentional padding, most
were found to have been In the Chinese
and other foreign sections of the city.
. Misunderstanding Blamed.
Most of the Inaccuracies Mr. Hester
sttribiites to misunderstandings of In
structions and failure on th part of the
enumerators to verify the correctness of
names turned In on slips, after the house-to-house
canvass waa completed.
Mr. Durand la satisfied front Mr. Hes
ter's report that Mr. Beach was thor
oughly conscientious In directing the enu
meration of Portland, and In bla state
ment" will glv hlra a clean bill.
Mr. Beach used every reasonable pre
caution to prevent Inaccuracies, and it
is believed that, considering tbe short
time at bis disposal and conditions under
which be worked, he displayed as great
efficiency as oould be expected of any
man. He rejected a great number of
names turned in for counting when be
discovered that the names were already
on the lists, and be permitted no addi
tions to enumerators reports unless con
vinced they were justified.
