THE NEWEST CAItMEN. OLGA NETHERSOLE CREATES NOVEL CHARACTER. Ufrinra'i I'naalntly Heroin A rielurod In Her Trnn Light by tha Swedish Actress One ('rule Bey Ihnt the la I'adnly Koallstle. Artlag IS3 OLGA NETH-ersobag achieved the distinction of creating a new Carmen. It cannot be said that we have ever looked upon 'a the heroine of story as a young woman of sluggish blood and le Mer-lmee- saintly character Ists, but in Miss Nethernole's Interpretation of the role any lingering doubts are rudely pushed aBlde and we are introduced to a beautiful animal and nothing more. 1 cannot thoroughly agree with the actress' conception and portrayal of the liart, for the ideal Carmen had hidden In her capricious soul some of the attributes of womanhood, which sometimes flamed Into view, even if such flashes were ephemeral. In the first act no one can dispute that Carmen is a wanton. but her abandon of conduct Is one In which shrewdness curbs a too great overstepping of the bounds'of decoru.n, except In the estimate of the superficial student Her connection with the smugglers calls for all this, but her lnpses on the side of mere passion are not allowed to conflict with the safe conduct and landing of contrabandists. He' favors are hardly won, and nothing holds her to the attraction of the moment but a fleeting thought of the welfare of the defiers of the king's imposts. Up to this point I have no fault to find with Miss Nethersoles staging of the character. Out when Don Jose Llbcngoa comes into Carmen's life there does stir in the wild heart of Carmen a vague something which is more enduring and pleasing than the crassness of the lowest nature; her whole conduct shows the struggling upward of a love which Is not completely made of earth. However, up to the time of Don Jose's and Carmen's flight to the smugglers' fastnesses no hint of this is discernible in Miss Nethersole's prose adaptation of the The actress gives to us noOpera. thing but human nature, and that, too. In Its most unaesthetlc and repulsive She does it well, Ill admltj phases. but that she has either Ignored or failed MISS NETHERSOLE AS "CARMEN. .to catch the finer though deep occluded spirit of the Spanish Carmen is equally Certain. In no way does the actress let slip anything which goes to show that lhere la one redeeming quality in the heart of Carmen. I candidly question the wisdom of making so realistically apparent such grossness upon the stage, even while I cannot dissent from its faithfulness to life.

He was originally intended for the bar, but, after reading law for six months, he abandoned that profession and adopted the stage.

After the Jersey City Club was disbanded Mr. Powers had several offers to manage teams, but the terms offered to him by the Rochester Club, of the International League, were the most satisfactory, and he accepted them. He remained with the Rochester Club during 1890 when it Joined the American Association. In 1891 he was engaged to manage the Buffalo team, of the Eastern League.
