Subway Strike Affects Theaters
EW YORK, March 13. Special Cor
respondence.) For the benefit of
those who think that the -worst
damper on the theatrical business comes
from blizzards and little Innocent things
of that kind, the information Is herewith
given that the worst blizzard conceivable
is nothing to compare to the effect of a
strike now on In New York City, which
affects the L and the subway roads. The
hardship which this has brought upon the
traveling public In New York is simply
beyond any description and, as stated be
fore, no blizzard could possibly tie up
both business and the public as this strike
has done.
Leaving out of question entirely the
matter of right and wrong, it seems per
fectly outrageous that in the present age
such hardship can be wrought upon the
general public who have no more to do
between the squabbles of the company
and Its employes or, to bo more correct,
between the employes and their company,
than between man and wije. Not only is
life and limb of every person who travels
endangered, but the hardships arc almost
beyond meeting.
Surface cars are running which aro so
crowded that people ride on the roofs,
and a number of the back platforms
broke off. leaving the cars to go ahead
without them, and also without 20 or 30
people who were hanging on by the skin
of their teeth.
Can anyone ever describe that sensa
tion which Is experienced when, after
standing In the beating rain And the
cold wind, eight or ten such .cars go by
without stopping and the consciousness
dawns that this may continue hour after
Can anyone realize the sensation of
being on thoso cars and being carried
as far the other side of your destination
as you were to start in with, simply be
cause the cars were so loaded with people
that there was no way of stopping or of
getting out or of making your wants
known, In any way, shape or manner.
At moments like these people do not
waste much sympathy on those who pre
cipiitated these conditions, and for the
greater part, heap imprecations of every
kind upon them. Coldly viewed from the
exterior, there Is no possible explanation
that can be offered, but for those who
understand how, under the sway of a
leader who exercises a seml-hypnotlc
spell, people are affected by what Is
known as the psychology of the crowds,
there may be some sort of an excuse con
cocted by those who want to find sym
pathy for them.
Very Jew plays have ever been awaited
with as keen an Interest as Ibsen's latest
drama, "When We Dead Awake." It was
the topic of conversation, it has been the
subject of editorial comment, and ltvgave
promise of sweeping things before It in
a general way.
Perhaps this was because it was Ibsen,
but more likely because of the startling
title, which he was lucky enough to hit
Judging from the production which oc
curred on Tuesday afternoon at the
Knickerbocker Theater, it would bo dif
ficult to believe that the play is on for
a very extended run. When a work Is so
extremely symbolic as "When We Dead
Awake," It can only appeal to a very
narrow circle, and that a class of people
who are given to reading literature on
these lines. To these there is much that

able confession to me that ho had
never seen a real live "puncher" except
those In the Wild West show. It was
fairly dlsalluslonlng, for I had studied
him closely the night before, and was
certain that his wonderful creation of
"Tho Virginian" was made possible be
cause some time or another he had worn
chaps to shed the rain of night herding,
and to save his eloquent legs from the
scratches of mesqulte brush.
It was Just sheer genius, then, not ex
perience as the bona flde plains horse
man, that was responsible for his splendid
assumption. I carried over to the hotel
well-defined ideas that he would tell me
of earlier days spent In a steel-fork sad
dle on top of a bounding broncho, of
wide vistas of sagebrush, of hectic sun
sets on the red hills, of tights for the
water holes and the wide, deep thrill of
round-ups on the open range.
Then to be told that It was all studied!
It was just a bit disheartening to one in
search of romance, but It established In
my mind the truth that this very suc
cessful young man Is not an accident.
"How did you ever manage it. then?" I
asked, as I settled Into the only arm
chair In his room at tho Portland.
The big, rangy actor got up "in his alow
way and walked to a table where a copy
of Wlster's book lay. "I've read this
story over and over again. I think I
could almost repeat it word for word.

who know the type have told me a thou

When ho walked about the room I took
his measure, and found him to be essen
tially big. His legs and arms are long,
his shoulders broad, and his chest deep.
He must be six feet high and weighs not
under ISO. He stoops a trifle, and has
the slouch of a man who has spent much
of his life riding a horse at a dog-trot.
Gray, but Only Twenty-nine.
Playing the part has so gotten Into him
that unconsciously he carries the part
with him when he leaves the stage. His
eyes are big and almost innocent, brown,
almost black. His hair is decidedly black,
long and curls at the ends, just as In the
piay, for he wears no wig. He Is begin
ning to get gray, although but 29. He
lays that to playing In cheap repertoire
through tho Canadian provinces. His
dress is plain, with a suggestion of care
lessness. Ho says he hates dress suits
and "blled" shirts, and I readily believe
Altogether It was a great mistake, his
having been born In Boston and educated
at the -Technology. If he had said Lan

sr hool, it would have been more eternally
"I've lived a great deal in the open
air," he explained, when I continued to
wonder. "Summer before last I rode all
over the State of , Maine on a horse. I
wore the same 'chaps' that I wear in The
Virginian,' and you should have seen the
natives stare at mo. It was a great vaca
tion, though. I never enjoyed one more.

mal, too. and next to horseback riding I

thought and study In the new Ibsen play,
but for the general public there Is little
dramatic Interest, and of the symbolism
they see naught- not unlike. 1n a
certain sense, Hauptmann's "Sunken
Bell" in theme, and it may bo remem
bered that notwithstanding the superb
mounting and the gorgeous production
given that play by E. H. Sothorn and
Virginia Harned, the public could not be
interested at all.
It seems to me there was much more
possibility to prolong the life of "The
Sunken Bell" than there are chances In
favor of "When We Dead Awake," purely
and simply as a dramatic production,
without any reference to Its literary or
philosophical worth.
Again, the topic is that of two human
beings drifting apart without realizing it
until suddenly brought to face the tragic
crisis. To those with a less discriminat

broad-minded enough the love of the

to him not only an ideal as a woman,
but also satisfied the artist's cravings,
this would be the only logical conclusion,
and in this the pair would enlist their
This problem was offered In the Forbes
Robertson play. Ibsen himself has sug
gested it In "The Doll's House," and,
more remotely. Jn "Hedda Gabler," but
he does not offer a solution. He simply
makes a climax by having this pair of
lovers ascend the cold and snowy heights
and there meet their doom by a frightful
storm and an avalanche.
When will playwrights learn that
death never solves a problem? It Is the
easiest way out, and perhaps the most
dramatic, but if a play is offered as a
problem. Its creator owes us some slight
inkling as to what he regards as the sol
vent. The company that presented the work
was not any -too efficient, and the best
work was undoubtedly done by Dorothy
Donnelly, who In a way portrayed the
frivolous and altogether human Mala with
a real insight to the deeper meanings.
Frederick Lewis, who played Oswald In
"Ghosts," left a good1 deal to be desired
in the role of the sculptor. Miss Flo
rence Kahn was more successful In every
thing than she was In make-up, for her
pallor was almost exaggerated, and In
many of her speeches she reached her
usual high standard, but not In all. how
ever. Frank Losee played the part of
Mala Rubek's brutal lover, which he did
with much force and ruggedness, If the
note of poetic insight was lacking. The
other two members of tho cast were
James H. Lewis, as the inspector of the
baths, and Miss Evelyn "Wood, a Sister
of Mercy.

As Queen Sonfa she has the opportunity
to shpw what she Is that is. a very well
bred woman of culture, refinement and
reserve. She has a beautiful musical voice,
and In all that which requires dignity
and command she Is thoroughly mistress.
What she would be In a role that required
the sweep of passion Is another thing, and
something which her present play gives
no opportunity of finding out. If this Is
life at court, and it probably Is. it is a
good thing to keep out of. for It Is very
stiff and very uncongenial, not even sug
gesting Intellectuality as a substitute for
other elements In the way of geniality
and the like.
Perhaps the most Interesting feature of
the production is the gown supposed to
be the replica of Queen Alexandra's coro
nation robe, which is not saying as much
as one would like to say about the play
itself. Henry E. DIxcy was a welcome
figure as the ex-King of Ingra, not only
because iUwas Dlxey. but because there
was a dash bf'real humor In him. Wil
liam H. Thompson, who is another of tho
best-known American actors, was cast to
a very poor advantage, which is a pity,
for Mr. Thompson has rare qualities. It
will be remembered that he Is the hus
