gentle consideration than some other ty
ros in famous roles who have come to us
more loudly heralded than he. As the
hero of romantic drama, he has several
points In his favor a handsome, broad
shouldered, sinewy stage presence: a fair
mastery of stage art: an easy way of
making pretty, chlvalrlc speeches to
grand dames, and deftness with his sword,
In killing troublesome people who get In
his way.
He has also that contagious freshnr;s
of fancy and frank ingenuousnerv of
manner that go so far toward t.-.ming
the unreal into the real. This outhfuI
naivete and gallantry are the essential
parts of his equipment for the role of the
reckless, loyal young guardsman half
boy, half man that-Dumas has made so
famous. Of course, we hardly expect
him to rise to tho full height of t,he
situation, with that power for making
"points" that O'Neill and the late Salvinl
showed in the same role: nor do we look
for their superb plcturesqueness of pose.

The Boston Lyrics.
It Is hard to take the Boston Lyric Op
era Company seriously. The very thought
of their good-humored antics and gay
splurge of nonsense banishes gravity. Some
of their fun-making was meant to be
funny and some of It was not. But where
is the cynic who cannot forgive an occa
sional faux pas from such hard-working,
happy-go-lucky merrymakers as these? So
rang as the company is wiso enough to
keep within the limits or comic opera, they
will have appreciative audiences.
Some of the voices are remarkably
good and some of them atrociously bad.
The choruses were given with snap
and verve, showing the influence
of an excellent musio director. The
notable improvement in Mr. Car
dray's orchestra deserves special com
ment. Tho repertory this past week, em
bracing six different operas, besides the
half-hour of music before each evening's
programme, thoroughly tested its capac
ity for work and proved that it is now
one of the best theater orchestras that
Portland has ever known.
Domenlco Russo, the new tenor, has one
of those fresh, limpid, flawless voices that
apparently belle the statement so often
made nowadays regarding Italy's lost art
of producing singers. It is a voice that is
the product of climate and language,
rather than of method. Its purity, smooth
ness and sureness of tone are beyond ques
tion, but in that appealing sweetnets
which takes hold of the heart-strings, hli
volie is not equal to Agostlnl's, of ihe
Italian Opera Company, which gavo such
delight to Portland music-lovers a few
years ago. Slgnor Russo is but 24 years
old. and sings with buoyant enthusiasm
and abandon, but without real dramatic
power. Interest naturally centered in his
Turlddu, the role which we are told he
created for Mascagnl's "Cavalleria Rus-
tlcana," but except for an added note of
scorn to poor Santuzza, he was the same
in this role as in that of Manrlco. or Faust.
Dramatically, he loses in force because of
his short stature.
Its Heat "Work.
The most effective work of the company
as a whole was thrown into "11 Trovatore"
and, "La Mascotte." to the former opera,
Miss Maud Leekley gave a particularly
successful portrayal of Azucena, the
Gypsy, while In the latter, John Hender
son and George Kunkel, as the prince and
the fanner, kept the house In an uproar
of merriment. Josephine Stanton's true,
well-modulated voice makes her a valua
ble comic-opera prima donna: as Bettlna,
the humor she put into that quarrel wth
PIppo-was certainly piquant, and in "Said
Pasha" she made a winsome Serena. In
the role of Marguerite, in "Faust," she
sang her part admirably. But with the
one exception of George Kunkel, as Me
phisto, all the characters were weak and
colorless in "Fautt," the only grand op
era that was given If we accept the dic
tum that "11 Trovatore" is melodrama
run mad. Mr. Kunkel surprised even his
best friends by his clever Impersonation cf
the "arch fiend." that scene wherein te
cowers back from the cross on the hilt
of the soldiers' swordi being a particular
ly successful bit of acting. The company
as a whole were not equal to the dif
ficulties of Gounod's score. Cuts were
made with careless hand. Tho impres
sive church scene was omitted, and Val
entine's noble Invocation of the cross.
There were long waits between acts and
occasional signs of bewilderment, while
tho opera was In progress. Harry Ratten
berry. in the role of Valentino, unwit
tingly afforded amusement in his death
scene, which gave indications of. betas o
struggle with embonpoint, rather :haa
with the dark angel.

Pros and Cons of an Oft-Dlaeosseil
Topic Worth Reading.
ASTORIA. Or.. March S9.-(To the Ed
itor.) Of the many articles that appear
from time to time in the current press
on "The Church and the Stage." I hive
made extracts from a few that I thought
the most Interesting. They are the views
expressed by both minister and actor.
Rev. T. DeWltt Talmage has this to say,
in the Christian Herald:
"God has; not only Implanted this dra
matic element In your natures, but in the
Scriptures he cultivates it: he appeals to
it; he develops it. I do not care where
you open the Bible, you will fall upon a'
drama.. Because the drama has, again
and again, been degraded and employed
for destructive purposes, is nothing
against the drama. If you have not
known men and women connected with the
drama who are pure in heart and pure in
speech and pure In life. It Is "because you
have not had a very wide acquaintance."
Tho Actors Society, of America, on Oc
tober 1, 1K-S, sent forth an appeal to the
clergy, to assist in suppressing Sunday
performances. Following are extracts
from the letter:
"For many years the actors have pre
tested against Sunday theatrical perform
ances, as an usurpation of right enjoyed
by all other citizens a right to one dsy
of rest In seven. The Sunday theatrical
performance Is such a radical wrong, so
demoralizing, not only to the actors, but
to the community in wtecn the perform
ance is given, that we think it should be
tho first point of attack. If we can check 'People who nreprone to 'criticise the
the demoralizing Influence of the Sunday actor and his attitude toward-'he church
performance, we, may then be in a bitter should remember that lncintof the "Llt

The following extracts are from a letter
published by Otis Skinner, a noted actor
and the ?on of a minister. In answer to a
sermon preached by an Indiana divine:
"That the theater has given cause for
much censure I do not deny; but because
you find abuse of privilege in any walk
of life. Is It your prerogative to condemn
to a leprous exile the class ot human be

Frank Daniels made an experiment re
cently at Wallack's. New York, calculated,
to set at roet arguments as to the most
valuable form of advertising. Speaking
of It the comedian said:
"As everybody with eyes roust know,
theatrical organizations pay out a fortune
every year for advertising. This adver
tising takes many forms newspapers, bill
boards, lithographs in windows, elevated
railroad stations,' postal-cards, ftrcet-cara
and a hundred and one other things sup
posed to catch the eye of the public.
"There was a pretty warm argument
the other night In my dressing-room over
the best form of advertising. I didn't take
part, because I knew It would result as I
had heard the same argument result many
times before. But the next day I con
sulted my manager, Klrke La Shelle. and
we concluded to test the thing by the only
reliable means. So that night, between the
acts, ushers distributed among the audi
ence clips with a brief printed statement,
setting forth the disputed question and
politely asking the recipient to Indicate

advertising forms employed, which one
had attracted him to the performance the

to the Idea, and the resp-nee was most
liberal. Eleven hundred llp were hand

and of that number 991 showed that many
of the 1100 had been attracted by the

comedian concluded, "the newspapers will

As the date of the bench show approach

that the Kennel Club has opened an offlce
for Superintendent J. W. Burrell, fanciers
are becoming Interested and. Judging from
the numerous inquiries from those think
ing of placing their dogs on exhibition, the
show will be a success, numerically. In
an Interview, Mr. Burrell made some time
ly suggestion? and pertinent remarks as
to preliminaries.
He states that there are a number of
dogs, from hto observation in his short
stay In the city, belonging to local men
which are fine thoroughbreds, but their
owners seem to be entirely unconscious
oi me iac so any one wisning rma-
tion regarding the quality or form of their
dog for the bench, or regarding the filling
up of entry blanks, he will furnish It
as far as he Is able. He recognizes the
fact that this is the first bench show for
Portland, and Is practically a venture, and
the following up of this worthy enterprise
will depend more or less upon the en
couragement to this show. Being a new
undertaking, he finds that the management
Is sadly handicapped In not having ad.

AH the return the officials will re-

the lion's share of the work, as all money
proceeds are devoted to current expenses,
such as feeding, benching and care of the
