MR. RIDDLE'S resignation has been commented upon heretofore, and we must all recognize how great a loss he will be to the department of elocution. But we must dissent from the Advocate when it says, regarding his present engagement, that it is "gratifying" that his "labor of love is now to yield him substantial benefit, and that his histrionic abilities are coming to receive their just recognition." No one more sincerely wishes success to Mr. Riddle than does the Crimson; but in consenting to play oedipus with an English support before mixed audiences, we think he has made a grave mistake. After the accurate presentation last year, this plan is little more than a travesty, not at all to be desired by those of us who are proud of that first success. We think that Mr. Riddle will sometime acknowledge the force of this objection; and therefore we regret that he is to act in oedipus this year.
