"The Pharisee" Proves a Failure
in New York City.
Beautiful Scenery In the Production of
"The Power of the Press"—Another
Melodrama that Will Make a Hit—
A. P. Dunlop, writing from New York
on the 21st inst., says:
"A. M. Palmer's new production at the
Madison Square Theater, is beyond doubt
a failure. At any rate, it is three acts of
long drawn out misery, well acted no
doubt, but the average theater-goer will
rather run away from it than go to see it.
'Tho Pharisee' was made in London by
Malcom Watson and Mrs. Lancaster
Wallis, and tells the story of a man who
finds that his wife had led an impure life
before marriage, and fora time refuses to
oondone her guilt. The interest of the
play lies in this woman's agony, and she
excuses her degradation by explaining
that her lather was a gambler and com
pelled her become a rich man's property.
This horribly dreary play was preceded
by a stupid piece called 'A Dinner at
Eight,' by a very young Canadian named
J. A. Richie. It was only fifteen minutes
long, and its brevity is its only charm.
'The Power of the Press,'' by George
H. Jessop and Augustus Pitou, after elab
orate scenic preparation, was produced at
the .Star Theater on Monday. As a dra
matic work it does not amount to much,
but there can be no mistaking its excel
lence as a scenic production. It is a tale
of life in the groat metropolis, and it
i takes fourteen shifts of scenes. One
scene showing the South street piers was
so charmingly painted that it caused a
call for the artist. The exterior of tho
Manhattan Athletic Club's new home
•was another picturesque success, with its
bright lights, its imposing stone front,
and its excellent perspective. Then there
were glimpses of the East River, the Bat
tery, and a notably graphic ship scene,
that caused round after round of applause.
In its delight with this panorama the au
dience possibly lost sight of the play's in
herent defect, and if overy night's audi
ence shall be similarly forgetful, 'The
Power of the Press' may triumph over
its own obstacles, and so gain the appro
val of the multitude."
" 'Cruel London,' a five-act melodrama,
by Frank Harvey, was also produced at
Miner's People's Theater on Monday.
He has selected tho theme which never
fails to touch the human heart, when
olothed in poetic and well-chosen lan
guage, namely, the struggle of the poor
and weak against the unjust domination
of the rich and powerful. 'Cruel Lon
don' has much to commend itself to
recognition, and will serve Kate Claxton
excellently for a road piece.
" 'Wealth' has turned out to be another
of the frequent failures at Palmer's
Theater, and yet it displays more thau
any other what a sterling artist E. S. Wil

A Cnndyrnaker Who Should Tnrn His
Attention to Money-Lending.
Last evening one of tho young ladies
attached to the Littie Tycoon Opera Com

and gave the proprietor—as she supposed
—a silver dollar. It happened, however,
to be a sort of locket, made by splitting
the coin, and it contained a portrait.
The lady did not discover her mistake
at the time, but the proprietor of a con
fectionery store near the theater, who was
standing by and saw what it was, gave
the restaurant-keeper another dollar for
When the lady discovered her loss and
learned where the coin was she applied
for it, but tho purchaser refused to sur
render it for less than $2 50. Captain Leo
detailed officer Carroll to go with her to
the candy-maker, but his visit was
equally fruitless, the man refusing to sur
render it unless paid the sum named.

covered the keepsake. If it was not re

Origin of the Terrible War in
What "La Republics" Thinks—The
Acts of Don Manuel Balinaceda,
President—A State of Anarchy.
[Translated from the Spanish for the ScjfDAY
Union, by S. H. Gerrish.]
For two months past, on the Pacific
Coast, a ferocious war has carried deso
lation and death before it in a Pacific
State. The Chilean nation, that during
fifty years, more or less, has enjoyed en
viable tranquillity, elevating itself to the
hight of the most prosperous nations of
the American Continent, is to-day deliv
ered up to that greatest misfortune for a
Without attempting to explain here
which of the two parties to the intern icine
combat originated the guilt of a situation
so abnormal for Chile, we will limit our
selves to a statement of the rise of the
contest, the end of which is to be seen.
Sooner or later the slippery road of the
dictator will fail him, who was fated in
an evil hour to conceive the project of
placing himself across the popular cur
rent, without reflecting that it would
cause the patriotic blood of brothers to
flow; he will be recorded as the chief
figure of a darkened page in the national
history of his country, and be followed by
the maledictions that the widows, the
disinherited wives and the orphans will
launch against him with their moans of
pain and hunger.
The thirty-seventh article of the Con
stitution of Chile suys only by virtue of
a law the Government may:
1. Fix annually the expenses of the
2. Fix equally, in each year, the forces
of sea and land that have to be maintained
in time of peace or war.
3. Fix the contributions that they de
cree for the term of eighteen months
only. And these forces of sea and land
they fix also for this same term of
The 3lst of December passed, and the
term had expired during which the ex
istence of the permanent army was au
thorized, as also the term of the law en
forcing payn.ent for public expenses.
The authorization was not renewed by
the Congress of the nation.
Thus it is that since this epoch all that
has related to the movement of the Ad
ministration, and especially in the do
partmeut of home affairs, has been
done outside of the law, breaking by this
fact the constitutional regime, or as may
be better said, the fundamental letter of
For what cause did the Congress of
Chile deny its approbation of tho esti
mates formerly enforced ?
It was a means of reprisal taken against
the government of Senor Balmaceda, for
having manifested publicly the reso
lution of nominating a successor to the
Presidency, and naming as the candidate
Senor Sanfuentes. •
It is he, then, who is responsible for the
rupture of the internal peace of the coun
try; and it is useless for us to make any
personal reflections upon the President,
benor Balinacedu. Ho speaks for us in
his manifesto published a short time
afterwards, with the idea of justifying
his conduct as chief magistrate of the
"By the guilt of Congress," he says,
"the Government is found without the
law of estimates of the expenses, and
Without the law that iixes tho forces of
sea and land; but obeying the imperious
and express command "of the fundamental
law, he will continue administrating the
State, and sustaining his authority at all
costs, having for his object the conserva
tion of the public order in tho interior,
and the security of the republic in the
exterior. That in consequence of this he
will preserve the army and navy on tho
footing in which they are found, paying
at the same time for the other services
that constitute the social life and the ex
istence of the republic."
Such are the words of Senor Balmaceda,
and as we have just said they speak for
us, and they show what will 'follow, as
there has passed to him all the preroga
tives that Congress would not authorize—
that is to say, he will bo in power as ab
What may we argue from all this ?
That Chile has broken to-day with her
ancient habits of peace, exasperated by
the disturbances in the Government,
which onght to servo as a lesson to those
in office who eonflde in the tolerance of
the people, until they are imprudent,
and whom they wish to govern as herds
of servants and vassals. Forgetting
those sound and just principles which
bridle the passions and mark tho correct
lino of action, will bring, some day or
That the abuse of power sooner or later
will destroy the social edifice is certain,
launching the people into great slaughter
of brother against brother, in which will
be buried the exterior credit and the
wealth of the nation. An autocracy in
power is over the lever of disorder, with
cynicism as much on the part of one as
the other, governed and governors. It
blots the democratic institutions out,
sinking the most energetic and noblo
people into an abyss of stagnation and of
What will be the end in Chile? Taking
the antecedents of cruelty, that rule in
each party, no one can foresee what it
will be. If we note the financial sit
uation, or the resources that the bel
ligerents have, we opine that it will bo a
prolonged war by the fact that the insur
rectionists have possession of the prov
ince of Tarapaca, a province that has
proved a continual fountain of metallic
wealth, which they can soon convert iuto
cannons and material of war to carry
them later to the gates of the capital city,
Santiago. There their aim will be to pro
claim before the entire nation tho princi
ple of the sovereignty of tho people and
to announce the fall of Balmaceda.
We will let the electric wires bring us
the news of these events, that develop so
gloomily in this province, in other times
so full of commercial life and of riches
without equal; a province that formerly
was for Peru a perpetual source of na
tional fortune; a province that after the
years of the contention of this last coun
try with Chile, was the Alsace and Lor
raine of South America; in a word, a
province that to-day by its incalculable
saltpeter works, divides, parts and tears
all the nation of Chile, where in the night
so many of the residents in towns and
cities awake in terror as they hear everj-
wheer amidst cannonades, the rattle of
sabre and musketry, the awful accom
paniment of double murder.— La lic

EFFECTS OF LA GRIPPE.
The Dreaded Disease Takes a Strona
Hold on Clilcugo.
Chicago, March 28. —The grippe has
taken a fearful hold upon Chicago, and
the fury of the disease is not abating in
the least. If there had been as many
deaths in Chicago during the past month
from small-pox as there have been from
pneumonia and kindred ailments, the
city would be in a panic. The deaths re
ported for the week will bo about 000,
against 400 for the same time last year,
probably the largest number ever re
corded in this city. From tho number
of fatal cases the prevalence of the sick
ness can best be appreciated, for of those
who are under the care of physicians
only a small percentage die. A" careful
estimate justifies the statement that
nearly a quarter of a million people in
this city are to.-d^.y under medical treat

A RAY OF HOPE.
Two Men Condemned to Death Said to
Pittsburg, March 128.—Something of a
sensation was created here to-day by the
charge that the desperado who murdered
deteccive Gilkinson last Saturday was the
real murderer of farmer Umberger, for
which crime David and Joseph Nicely
aro condemned tp be executed at Somer
set, Pa., next Tuesday. John Myers, a
reputable citizen of Homestead, says
Fitzsimmous is recognized as one of two
peddlers seen in the neighborhood of the
Umbnrger homestoad the night of the
murder and robbery, and who aro be
lieved to have been tho murderers of the
old farmer. The Nteelya were convicted
on purely circumstantial evidence, and
have steadily protested their innocence of
the crime. The friends of the condemned
will make an eilbrt to have them respited

SEND THE WEEKLY UNION TO YOUR
friends in the East.
It is the duty of every man of family
to provide them with a home. To enable
him to do so, we will hold the second
City Lots in South Sacramento,
Lying East of Sacramento Avenue, at
that Large Store,
NO. 519 J STREET,
THURSDAY EVENING, APRIL 2,
-A.t ?:3O O'Oloek.
We hold the sale in the evening to enable those who
are employed through the day to attend.
The former Auction Sale was a success. ONLY A FEW
LOTS LEFT IN THIS SUBDIVISION (71 lots having been
sold at previous sale). We have determined upon closing
them out, and this will be THE LAST OPPORTUNITY TO
OBTAIN A CHEAP AND DESIRABLE BUILDING LOT,
where streets are all graded and high taxes avoided, with
clear and pure water in abundance, at a much less cost
than in the city.
The Electric Railway being an assured success, fifteen
minutes more time is only consumed in going from a point
in the city to South Sacramento, where Lots will be sold
for 600 per cent. less.
Lots Will be Sold Without Reserve to the Highest Bidder, Consequently
a Bargain Will be Secured.
TERMS—One-fourth cash, deferred pay
ment in monthly installments of $10,
with interest at 7 per cent, per annum,
purchaser paying taxes.
