Such is Arthur Brisbane of tho Now York
Lnloutherohasat last found "Bed Jim"
McD triLott. For weary ' months and
monil.s tho English Liberals havo been
tinchlDg the protean dynamiter all over
EUropc while he has been innocently dis
poning himself In Loudon under tho
clcoronngo of Tom Fielders ot the Now
York Ha aid. They had hoped to get a
"squeal" Lorn McDcrmott before tho Tar
nell Commission, and wero particularly
industrious in their, search for him Just
previous to tho tragic end ot Tlgott. Ono
of their agents', n priestly-lnoklng Irish
detective, who assumed tho namool Wilson,
ransacked Tails nt tho trifling expenso of
10 a day, accomplishing nothing more
w ondcif ul than tbu Inspection of the con
cert halls and cafes, nnd tho confusion of a
young countryman who was imposlus on
tho Latin Quarter as a suspended clerical.
How many Wilsons there were doing tho
gaieties of the continent nt $!i0 a day the
Lord and the Liberals only know. Where
tho money camo from for this folly will,
perhaps, bo appreciated by the Irish Amer
icans who could havo put their contribu
tions to better use.
McDermott tricked all his pursuers by
staying most of tho timo where they least
expected to find him. Hla surrender to
Fielders is an illustration of what good
manners and genial disposition do for the
journalist where the scent of tho sleuth
hound often fails. Fielders was sharing a
bottle of wine with some .friends in the
Grand Hotel one night when another party
of friends camo in with a stranger, whom
they introduced as a. French nobleman.
Whatever his suspicions, ho (Fielders) did
not, like his comrades, sutler them to
betray him into silent expressions ot con
tempt for a Trinco who spoke with a dis
tinct fusion of tho Irish, Bowery and Chi
cago Bridgeport tongues. On the contrary
he listened with the gravest and most
amazed attention to th wondrous talcs
the nobleman told and was rewarded
later in tho night, when tho fumes of the
grape had done their work, by tho blue
blooded stranger falling into his arms.
"See here," said thomystcrj-, on thequiet,
"I llko jou. You're a trump. I ain't no
Frenehmauf I'm 'Bed Jim' MoDennott."
Fielders Immediately cabled a two-column
Intel view with the supposedly dead suspect,
and has had him within call ever sluce.
MeDennott's story was largely fiction, how
over, as there ts no such titled woman ti
Franco in ho pretends to have tnarriel.
Though McDermott asserts that ho Is un
protected and unpumped, it is evident to
all who aro familiar with tho situation that
hu is lu the bauds of thu Government's
secret officers, and that thu Government ts
In possession ot his secrets.

I.ct mo clto an Instance under thorulons
It now exists: An employe obtains a leovo

turns after an ubsenco of eight days, on
-M ond a), In time toicpurt at his desknt.Ua,

(line slips, slonod by tlio head of divlilnn.
covering that time, but would bu obliged to
ask the Secretary for leave of ubsenco for
tho preceding Sunday and tlio additional

In other words. If one remains hi town or
returns to town and reports for duty at tho
bcBhnilnc of each week ho can obtain thirty
mirklwj das: but it ho wishos to so to a dis
tant home, or to tho seashore to recuperate
health lost by out work or the wretched
sanitary condition of tho bnllilinic hi which
he is employed, he must lose tho Sundays in

Soprano slngcis should be fond of high
"Tin: Ooun". Tho merry "Oolnh" (Hied
every seat Iu tho National last night, and
bonked a trlplo row of slanders behind tho
orchestra circle. Tho opera has seldom
been preseufed In better form, and Francis
Wilson, always a favorite, was at his best
lu tho chnrncter of Itootithgoolah, tho
"Oolnh." Wilson Is In all respects a por
fect clown, and tho part seems admirably
fitted to his gymnastic and laughable ccccu
liitltlcs. His topical song, "Tlio Tiling
Which Nobody Knows," caught on vigor
ously, and was repeatedly encored. Mario
Janecu, In a somewhat humblo part, Illus
trated tho perplexities of the Persian mar
riage laws In her own pleasing way, while
Nettle Lyford and Laura Mooro sang to
plenty of applause. The company ts tho
same as that which produced tho opera for
tho first time nt tho Broadway Thojtro In
N6w York, slid neither tho words nor tho
music havo been materially changed.
"Listen to My Talo of Woo" still forms
the Wllsen-Jatisen duet, and it has ap
parently lost uono of Its charms to plciso
a Yasblngtol nndlcuco. Tile "Oolah" will
sty with us all this week; and It' deserve
the patronage ot tho Capital theatre-goers.
In tho lino of comic opera it Is decidedly a
"La TOsca." Fanny Davenport ap
peared In tho title rolo of Sardou's power
ful tragedy, "Lit Tosca," roprodUcod in
this city at Albaugh's Opcra-House last
evening. She was grcetedhy a largo audi
eiice, brilliant ond appreciative, who re
warded her efforts by repeated encores and
twice summoning' her before the curtain.
Miss Davenport us la Turcu, Melbourne
McDowell, ns Scurjua, Thcodoro Kohorts as
.liirio Caivruilosti and Frank Willard as
Tiisflxr oro the only members of tho com
pany who havo been seen hero before, tho
minor parts having been changed since the
Inst appearance of "La Tosca" in VVushing
ton. The performance throughout was a
most credltablo one, Miss Davenport's
work being marked by her usual earo und
conscientious endeavor. In tho torture
scene, with all its realism, when La Tosai
writhes in mental agony at each entreating
groan from her suffering lover, and again
when she sacrifices tho life of Srorpia
rather than yield to his demands, tho in
teiisoenrncsttiess of tho gifted woman held
tho audience enthralled. MoDowcll por
trayed tho haughty llaron In his own Im
pressive stylo, with no lack of mnnuertsais.
It secmsas If Sardou had created the part
for him. Ccsare Angcltolli, Oscar Eagle,
tho refugee, showed a marked improve
ment over his previous work iu this part.
MUs Alfa Terry Dyers seemed a trifle ma
ture as Gcrmarino, Mario's littlo body ser
vant The rest of tho company appeared
to good advantngo In their several parts.
Tho costumes and scenery aro mainly ef
fective, although it Is a matter of opinion
as' to whether Miss Davenport's brilliant
scarlet apparel lu tho first act Is entirely
becoming. Tho court scene .seems somo
what hurried and tho intervals between the
acts intolerably long, but to sea "La
Tosca" Is, on tho wholo, to see about as
powerful, If not as sensational, a drama as
tlicic is on the American stago to-day.
"Tnc Fakiu." Hamlin's Faico Comedy
Company taxed tho scaling capacity of Har
ris' little theatre last ovening, and pre
sented their "Fakir" to unbounded ap
plause. It Is a farco far superior to the
general run, with situations that arc really
funny nnd a bright, crisp dialogue. Tno
plot of tho affolr is turned aside occasionally
to allow the lending lady to slug about tho
misfortunes of Mcdinty or to propound a
musical request for some one to listen to
her talc of woo, but no ono in the nudlenco
objected to this arrangement, and tho
entertainment went on swimmingly. "Tho
Fakir" is written about a' series of diffi
culties In which tho Whirligig Opera Com
pany find themselves involved, and this
central idea gives lots of room for those
somewhat antiquated songs and dunces
which go to make up farce comedy. Ed
ward Morris, Charles V. Seaman, Leslie
Edmunds and Mario Cahlll sustain their
parts iu their own merry way, nnd tho rest
of the company come in for a good share of
applause. "Tho Fakir" will stay at Har
ris' all the week, with the usual matinees.

good audience into Fortran's last night,
and standing-room was at a premium long
before 8 o'clock. The company is nn ex

music is mainly good, and tha dancing,

as a New England magnate. This ac
counts for tilts appointment
There are only 83,000 greenback' bills i
now outstanding, although the Treasury ,
Department has endeavored to call In i
all bills of large denominations. There !
is but one 10,000 greenback bill in ex
istence which is still uncanceled. It

Rottcrman of Cincinnati says that for
years his ollico has carried a $.",000
greenback as a relic, and that every
treasurer kept tlio bill and will not send
it back to the Treasury for redemption..
Henry Cabot Lodge, the literary
statesman, is surprised at tlte appoint

that Corea was entitled to both a Min

Mr. Fowler of Winchester, Mass., was

It. is not an uncommon thing lo see a

around the Capitol, but when you sec

man it looks suspicious. This" was
what Hon. Adair Wilson was doing in
the i otunda at Willard 's, but ho declared
most emphatically that his visit hero
had no political significance. Mr.
Wilson hails from thnt section of the
Centennial State where sago brush
thrives','' irrigation ditches uru numerous
and wbcro ex-Senator Tom Ilowcn de
rives enough income from Ids silver
mine to make tho manipulators of tho
red nnu uiuo cntps leel weary when tlicy
como in contact with him. Ho has
been a conspicuous llguro in Colorado
politics for years, and It would bo con
sidered very tame to havo a StatuDcino
cratlc convention without Adair Wilson
picjent. "Tho gentleman from Del

the Mexican colony in tlio San Louis

tion from Tin: Ciutic representative as
to whether that was tho object of his

His sympathies are naturally with Now
