THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-TUESDAY DECEMBER 2, 1902.

"The- Two Schools."
Of lh many French comedies that
'have been Introduced to American
theatre roots of recent yeiirv, "The Two
-'Schools' la rutlici' the best and the
'rnost'lekltlmate from a technical view
'point. In the original It, must have
tieeh decidedly clever und It b'oro trans
lation wlthoiit all of the bud clToctB
'that so often follow (hat operation.
But even In Its expurgated and Ameri
canized form It Is French, decidedly
French. Sontnton haR no great yearn
Inn- for that kind of theatricals, and
though Charles Frohman has given
"The Two Hehools" a must excellent
company, the audience that caw It lust
night at the Lyceum was not very large
and was rather cold.
The story is of tho usual French com
edy order, which regards marrlagn ns .1
lingo Joke, and the Infidelities of litis
imnda and wives ns matters of course,
I'npn. Joulln, during a serious (all? with
his son-in-law concerning tho lutter'e
uttentlon to women other than his wife,
advises him to have his little affairs if
he will, as ho (Joulln) has had all his
Jlfo, but "don't get found out." Alumina
Joulln assures her daughter that all
licr" life she has known that her litis
'hand has had let's call them flirta
tions but she has dismissed them from
her mind and never mentioned them to
her husband. Thus she has found hap.
ilness and kept her husband devoted to
Iter. If one will marry, she sagely as
sures her daughter, only by adopting
her philosophy of lifo can happiness
nnd peace of mind bo obtained. Men
will not be constant. This is the un
wholesome utmosphcro of the entire
four acts of tho comedy.
To the tusk of making this kind of
thing convincing, Mr. Frohman as
f.lgned Ida. Conquest, Ida. Waterman,
Jessie Busley, Jameson Lee Finney, M.
A. Kennedy, Winchell Smith and other
jjnod actors. They played the comedy
with a. delicacy that was praiseworthy
nnd admirable. Misa Conquest seemed
out of place" amid these French sur
loundlngs, she is such an eminently
proper looking young woman, but she
lld the finished and conscientious work
that is characteristic of her. She was
the young wife who tires of her hus
band's affairs with other women ond
divorces him; not in anger, but rather
in sorrow that she cannot hold him. for
she really loves him. Jameson Leo Fin
ney was the light-hearted, light-minded
hushnnd, who teallzes only after he has
lost his wife that m other woman was
over so attractive to him as his wife.
JIc strives to win her back and eventu
ally succeeds. There is a fine scene in
the third act between Mr. Finney and
Miss Conquest, which hud the only
honest ring or the whole comedy.
Miss Busloy gave a vivid, palpitating
presentation of the character of ISstella.
Her husband had run away with an
other woman and married her, which
Kstrlla declared was the respectable
thing for him to do under tho circum
stances. While getting a divorce,' 15s
tella Is under the patronage of Joulln,
who Interested his son-in-law, Mau
burn. a lawyer, in getting the divorce
i'or ber. When Mauburn is divorced,
Kstella giver, tip Joulln to console Mau
burn. and when she came to the part
' ing of the ways with him she throws
herself on the nork of LeHautors, who
was engaged to marry Mauburn's
Shc -was determined to keep in tho
family, you see.
The fidelity with which Miss Uusley
pre.sentcd the Intellectual and physical
qualities of that kind of woman was
r.uhject for nothing less than amaze
ment. Miss Waterman nnd M. A. Kennedy
as J'apa and Mamma- Joulln wore ex
cellent. "The Gamekeeper" at Academy.
Smith O'Brien, in "The Gamekeep
er," pleased two largo audiences at
tho Academy of Music yesterday af
ternoon and evening. "The Gamekeep
er" is a pretty Irish play, full of
witty sayings and strong situations.
Several very beautiful songs are sung
by Mr. O'Brien, who lias a sweet
voice peculiarly suited to Irish bal
lads. He is handsome and possesses
a manly figure, such as an audience
delights to see in a hero. "In the
Dear Old Summer Time" and "A
Daughter of Ireland" were perhaps
two of the prettiest songs he sang.
The company is a capable one
throughout. Miss "Bancroft as Kath
leen O'Neill, and Miss Knox as Molly
Doolan, afforded excellent support,
while Miss Louise Barrett as Lady
Nora was exceptionally good. John
Barrett as Hubert Boyle did a clever
hit of impersonation, while Tony Mur
phy was exceedingly funny In the' rule
of Johnny Drake. The scenery was
nil new and very elaborate.
Four more performances of "The
'Gamekeeper" will be given, this af
ternoon and evening and tomorrow af
ternoon and evening.
The New Majesties.
Fred Irwin's Now Majestic Bur
lesque company presented a number of
original novelties ut the Star theater
yesterday, at the beginning of their
three days engagement. The troupe
which is headed by Billy Watson con
tains a number of talented people, in
cluding Charles Merrill, the marvelous
trick bicycle rider; Vulnion and llor
ton, In eccentric dancing specialties;
Mcllnle and Carow, Gertlo DcMllt and
others. One of tho funniest numbers
of the olio was given by Zlska and
King, who combined mystery and
mirth in a way that made their act
one of tho most entertaining.
Tho closing burlesque, entitled "King
for a Day," by W. D, Ballouf, Is one
of the best on tho road, containing
many funny situations and catchy
music, which was w'ell received yes
terday. Some of the musical numbers
were exceedingly well rendered, those
worthy of special mention being tho
"Spanish Scnoreta" by Lulu Vulnion
and chorus, and "My Blushing Itnse"
by Miss f.'oates and chorus, The Ma
jesties will be at tho Star today and
tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Wall Strcot Review.
New York, Dec. t. Today's stock mar
ket made a rather notablo show of
strength and prices were lifted quite gen
erally 1 per cent, or more. This was due
In part to sjmputhctie effect of move
ments' in special stocks In which a specu
lative campaign was going on, but gen
eral considerations nlso played a p.ut. Ol.
tho general movements the nio.it notablo
was in the local tractions. The accom
panying gossip quite generally pointed to
a plan for a comprehensive merger of all
the traction facilities within the
greater New York corporate limits nnd a
supposed share in control by Now York
Central and Pennsylvania. Manhattan
conspicuously abstained from a share in
tho movement nnd vu3 at times below
Saturday's level. Tho dealings In this
stock were rather light. This gave some
color to a. supposition that tho movement
umong the other tractions was designed
to adjust their valuations to tho higher
level already attained by Manhattan.
Another conspicuous center of strength
was the soft coal group, especially tho
north and south vends traversing the
region between the Ohio river ami the
lakes. Humors were current 01" a plan
for combining nil railroads in the group
by making a holding company of one of
tho smaller companies, Hocking Valley
and Kanawha and Michigan were most
affected. Thoro was sonic speculation on
the assumption that selling stocks on tho
mound of supposed nntl-trust views to
bo expressed in tho president's message
would prove unwarranted. The season
able cold weather had a good effect on
the cencral mnrkot and more especially
on the coalers. There wer-5 occasional
set-backs throughout tho day but tho
