At that time, as now, Augustln Daly

as In sftsr years. - H had gone to Lon

many faults, but It should not be for

elevate the tone of th stage In a ma
terial sens at least and that ha was
th first to accustom New York audi
ences to tha elaborate atage setting and
perfect ensemble' which w now expect
from th theatres of tha first clans.
