MR. CHAPPELL'S BOLD PROPOSITION.
He Suggests That AH the Chicago Kail-
roads Seek New Terminals.
Charles H. Chappell, general managei
of the Chicago and Alton railroad, has set
Chicago to talking. The mayor, council
and citizens gen
in discussing the
feasibility and ad
visability of hav
ing elevated ter
ininals for all ot
the railroads cen
tcring there. Thi
suggest ion Mr.
Chappell is said to
have met with a
proposition to the
other railroads to
c. H. chappell. combine, purchase
a large tract of land at the south end ci
Lake Michigan, and there found a general
terminal. This town would be modeled
much after the present city of Pullman,
and large inducements would be offered to
encourage the establishment of all sorts of
enterprises. 'W alehouses, docks and yards
would be constructed, and Mr. Chappell is
said to have stated that, in his opinion, the
new town would be a benefit rather than a
detriment, to Chicago. He docs not be
lieve that elevated terminals can be built
strong enough to support the heavy trains
in use nowadays.
On the other hand, those opposed to the
new town idea assert that by a combina
tion the rights of way of the different rail
roads could be sold for a gieat deal oi
money, and that the saving resulting from
a decreased force of flagmen, freedom from
damage suits for accidents at crossings
and other present expenses would make
the elevated terminal plan cheaper than
the one now in use. At any rate, whether
the new town bo built, or the mayor's idea
be carried out, an enormous amount of
money will have to bo spent in Chicago,
and the people will be correspondingly
benefited. The matter has not yet been
settled, but the agitation on the subject
has assumed such proportions that it is
more than likely that a change of some
kind will be made.

Alexander Bull's bowing and methods of

resemblance ends, for the young man is of
a highly nervous temperament, showing
his French blood. Some of the greatest

to call Alexander Bull friend, and in Paris
he is the center and life of a very select
coterie, which is principally responsible for
the recent revival of interest in Norse mu
sic. The violin used by Alexander is the
one upon which his father performed when,
as an enthusiastic writer expressed it, "he
had America at his feet." It is a full sized

his brief American visit Mr. Bull will re
turn to Paris. Thence he will go to Nor

Since Its Organization 'o Actor Has Be

for Its Benefit.
Beginning May 2 and lasting six days
there will be held in Madison Square gar
den, New York city, what promises to be
the greatest charitable fair in history. It
will have for its object the raising of
money for the Actors' Fund of America,
and will doubtless put many thousands of
dollars into the treasury of that most
A history of the Actors' fund has never
been written, although it is probably the
broadest and most admirably organized
charity in America. It extends to every
town and city in the United States, and the
wide wings of its well doing shelter all
members of the amusement profession in
times of adversity. No distinction is made.
Scene shifters have the same standing as
stars in the eyes of the Actors' fund. The
result of its labors is shown in this state
ment made by Mr. Louis Aldrich:
"Not an actor has been put in a public
charitable institution or buried in a pot

During the nine years of the fund's life
it has expended for relief, burials, medi
cines and hospital changes $136,314.42. The
actors and actresses who were saved by
this money from destitution or the igno
miny of becoming public charges, number
2,571, and decent graves have been found
for more than 500. In the single year of
1891 relief was extended to 431 people. The
democracy of the fund's work is shown by

6 stage managers. In 1SS4, tho second
year of tho fund's existence, there w ere
only 100 relieved and 48 buried. The fund's
usefulness has almost doubled, therefore,
during the eight yeara.
To Manager A. M. Palmer must be given
the lion's share of the credit for conceiving
and organizing this splendid charity. lie
called tho meeting of New York and
Brooklyn theatrical managers in March,
18S2, which first formally discussed the
project. At this preliminary meeting Les
ter Wallack was elected president and Mr.
Palmer secretary. In July of the same
year, after tho fund had been incorporated.
Mr. Wallack was again elected president
and Mr. Palmer was advanced to the ice
presidency. Since then Lester Wallack
has passed away and Mr. Palmer has been
seated in the president's chair.
Tho idea of increasing the fund's bank
account by holding a great fair is a radical
departure from the custom of the past. In
previous years monster benefits have been
given for the fund
in the large cities
with very gratify
ing results. M. B.
Curtis, the actor
who was recently
tried on the charge
of killing ti San
man, by the way,
gave at the Four

the first perform

another was given in which nearly every
prominent theatrical personage then in
New York helped in some way. Tho pro
ceeds of the day were more than f J0.000
and tho entire expenses to the fund was
less than $2,300. James Gordon Bennett,
owner of the New York Herald, cabled
10,000 from Europe. John Jacob Astor
sent a check for 250. Edwin Booth do
nated $1,000 and Joseph Jefferson gave,
half as much. Sarah Jewett and Maud

Saturday is the pay day of the fund, and
when it comes around each week it brings
with it a long line of needy professionals.
For the sensitive ones a private entrance
is provided, through which they may
quietly enter, draw their relief money and
slip away uneen: but most of the benefi
ciaries go boldly in through the reading
room and stop, after they ha e been at
tended to, to chat awhile with their fellow
over their troubles, their past triumphs
and future hopes.
When a beneficiary is unable to go to the
fund to get his relief the fund goes to him.
Trusted agents carry money, food and med
icines as the fund's doctors lecommend,
and not only relieve actual distress, but
supply little luxuries to worthy ones. Out
of toun beneficiaries are attended to by the
corresponding secretaries as directed by the
executive committee, of which Mr. Louis
Aldrich is chairman.
There is almost no red tape about the
Actor's fund. The way the work is car
ried on was hinted at by Assistant Secre
tary Gurney t henie said to me:
"We consider it better to give help to
fifty unworthy applicants than to refuse
relief to one deserving person."

When any number of persons wish tc

they form a club. The club, however
is by no means a social organization
The pretext is some sort of mind cultnre.
an arena for tho discussion of some sub
ject. Shakespeare's plays, Brovming
Dante, the stage, indicate the simpler
range of topics. Or if nothing better
offers, the members set up a man of
straw and have shies at him, a sort of in
tellectual game of Aunt Sallie.'
The town is honeycombed with such
clubs. They are superseding dancing
and the natural diversions of the young
and conversation and cards of tho more
mature. The common pleasure in meet
ing one another in good clothes and oft
duty no longer exists. Nor have the so
cial affiliations that used to be found in
tho church and in the mission school
any remaining power of social cohesion.
It is a curious development, and is na
turally in a more vigorous state among
people from other parts of the country
who have come here to live, and must
find excuses for social organization out
side those that exist m older and allied
communities of people. An inherent
craving to know and to commune about
Plato or Renaissance arc will furnish a
pretext for social advances that no one
can possibly mistake for bumptiousness
or any undue social aspiration. When
a sufficient number of persons with a
kindred thirst is discovered its satisfac
tion takes place at intervals in one an
other's drawing rooms. This climbing
of staircases, ascent of elevators, fa
miliarity with one another s surround
ings and subsequent wafers and cups of
tea after the mam business is concluded,
furnish as solid and as quickly riveted
bonds as are welded by society in any of
ilt older forms.
