DUNDEE JUNCTION. April 10To the
Editor.) Will you answer the following
questions In the columns of your paper?
There has been quite an argument about
lt here. Did not Bryan organize a regi
ment of soldiers and take them to Florida
and there leave them to go to Cuba? The
Bryan men claim he did not leave them
until the war was over. G. W. BTERS,.
Mr. Bryan was elected Colonel of a
regiment, but his regiment never left the

As soon as It became evident that his

NEW PLAY BY ROSTAND
"IAIGLOJT" TO DE AH ATTRACTION
OF THE EXHIBITION SEASON.
A Patriotic Illusion of the Napoleonic
Period That Tatfea Parisian Theater-Goers
"L'Alglon "The Eaglet" the drama in
six acts', written In Alexandrine verse by
Edmond Rostand for Sarah Bernhardt,
and which theatrical and fashionable
Paris has been awaiting with tbe keenest
eagerness, was produced March 15 at the
Theatre Sarah Bernhardt before the most
brilliant first night audience of the sea
son. The enthusiasm was Immense. It
was a triumph both for Sarah Bernhardt
and for Rostand. All who are prominent

threw himself Into the arms of Rostand
and kissed him. Coquelln ran up to
Sarah's loge and embraced her. M. Cas-

public accentuated Ms congratulations by
pressing his lips to Sarah's hand. So did
also the veteran General Saussler. Among
those who thus expressed their congrat

a fresh ovation, and shouts of "Roitand!"
"Rostand!" resounded on all tMn min
gled with those of "Sarah!" "Sarah!"
In short, there were all the elements
that constitute a theatrical first night's
triumph. But it should be recollected that
this elite audience was stirred by Its per
sonal sympathy with Sarah Bernhardt and
with Edmond Rostand;- and was also
keenly disposed toward the patriotic Illu
sions of the Napoleonic legend. When, re
moved from this magnetic Influence, one
begins In cold blood to analyze the play,
it is difficult to find a satisfactory expla
nation for all this enthusiasm. The writer
put this question to Vletorien Sardou. to
Jules Lemaltre and to Felix Duquenel.
Incisive dramatic critic of the "Gaulols."
All three admitted that the enthusiasm
was largely due to causes beyond the play
Itself, and could not be expected from any
other audience but a French one.
Rostand's dexterous versification retains
the same charm and cunning as shown In

Great Napoleon's campaigns. In the hope
of arousing the youth to fulfill his destiny.
The scene with which the act closes,
wherein the Prince reproaches his mother
with having forgotten that she was ths
wife of Caesar, is strong, but Is sugges'.lve
of Hamlet approaching the Queen.
In the second act the Prince, returning
home from the army maneuvers, finds tho
police searching his papers. Then en
sues a scene where tnc Austrian officer.
Count Prokcsch. by means cf a box of

devoted to htm, and ls In the conspiracy.
The Duke approaches the Emperor of Aus
tria and asks to be a'lowed to return to
France. Metternlch convinces the Em
peror of the danger, and In what
ls considered the most dramatic sit
uation of the play leads the Alslon before
a mirror and points out to him ths dis
crepancies of form, feature and expression
between Relchstadt and his great father,
and proves to him that he ls more a
Hapsburg than a Napoleon. The Alglon,
In a wild outburst of dismay and grief,
rushes at the mirror and dashes lt into
fragments. Sarah is here superb. The
Prince finally decides to go with the con
spirators. As a sign of his readiness he
places upon a table the nat wnicn was
worn by Napoleon at Austerlltz. A gro
tesque Sergeant of tho old Imperial Guard,
who, disguised as an attendant, has bees
near the Prince, dons his French uniform
and stands before the door of the Duke's
chamber as a sentry. Metternlch appears
In the moonlight, discovers the conspiracy
and puts an end to It.
In the next act comes the rupture of the
Duke and his mother, and his love pas
sages with the reader to Marie Louise, a
girl named Therese, followed by the
Prince's departure, while the spies around
him arc thrown off the track by La Cama
rata. who disguises herself as the Duke of
Relchstadt. Thla part of the play Is beau
tifully mounted, and the masquerade in
the gardens of Schonbrunn forms a de
lightful picture. Then comes the ccene on
the deserted battlefield of Wngram by
moonlight, where the conspirators fall, and
where the old Sergeant, brought to bay,
etabs himself with a knife, and, as the
stain of blood appears over his heart ex
claims that he is at last decorated with the
"Legion of Honor."
The sixth act is merely an epilogue rep
resenting the end of the Duke of Relch
stadt. Tho death ls reproduced from the
records of the Austrian Court. It may
be described as a death according to. the
protocol. Tho assembled family of tho
House of Hapsburg kneel In an ante
chamber while the last racrament Is ad
ministered. The Iron camp bedstead of
the Emperor Napoleon lo placed near the
golden cradle of the King of Rome. The
brief Intervening space Is symbolical of the
fitting nothingness of tho career of. tho
Duke of Relchstadt. As the Prince be
comes weaker and an acute attack of
pneumonia overpowers him ho asks the
Court Chamberlain to read aloud the
description of the Imperial ceremonies that
accompanied the announcement of the
birth of the King of Rome. He nko In
sists that his baptismal certificate shall'
be read. In which he Is described as "Son
of Napoleon, Emperor of the French, King
of Rome." After the death Prince Met
ternlch gives Instructions that tho body
be clothed In the uniform of an Austrian
Colonel, and the curtain falls.
