THREE NIGHTS OF MIKSIKKLSY THIS
W11GIC AT ALHAUGIl'S.
tin MtuiuRcr Carloton it Special Arrange

Approaching Senium Ilora Dimnlng's
Kngngoment nt tlio Nntloiinl.
Tho Carloton Opera Company will bo with
us on Monday August 10 for a three weeks'
engagement atAlbaugh's. The company Is
now closing a very successful season of six
weeks at tho Star Theatre In Buffalo. During
the past two weeks Carloton has been com
peting with Pain's pyrotechnic display of
" Pompeii," and thereby hangs a talo wnlch
ln"yo olden time" days would have con
victed Carloton of hoodoolsm. Tho exhibition
was given on tho outskirts of tho city and it
was advortlecd extensively In tho outlying dis
tricts that upcclal trains would bo run from
tho country towns at a minimum rate of fare.
Tho night tho show was bobked to open it
rallied, uud rained hard. Tho downpour be
gan, however, after tho special trains had
.started, and when tho oxcurslonists arrived in
Buffalo they learned that tho fireworks had
been postponed until tho following evening.
Then thoy Hocked to tho Star Tbeatro in such,
numbers that the management was unable to
accommodato them all. It rained the follow
ing night and so on throughout tho week with
the Bamo results.
Finally the manager of tho fireworks de
cided to try alternating nights, but with less
success. Tho evenings when tho fireworks
were not displuyed tho weather waB delight
ful, but on show nights tho rain camo down
in torrents. In tho meantime Pain's manager
"went to Carloton and offered him all sorts of
inducements If ho would only let go of tho
"weather strings," but to this Carleton would
not consont, and tho result was that tho
opera company did all the business. Tho cast
will be as follows: .Misses Clara Lane, Alice
Vincent, Marion Laugdon, Delia Thompson,
Messrs. J. Iv. Murray, Charles A. Bigelow,
W. H. Fitzgerald, Walter West, and others.
The chorus will bo as usual, a large one. Tho
sale of seats begins Thursday.
Goorco Wilson's Mlnstrolu.
Georgo Wilson's Minstrels will be at Al
baunh's on Thursday, Friday and Sat
urday of this week also at the Saturday
matinee. Georgo Wilson ia so well and favor
ably known in Washington that he Is always
sure of a hearty welcome whenever ho and his
band of burnt cork artists appear. Tho fol
lowing is from tho New York Journal: "Comi
cal George Wilson stalkedupon tho 6tage of
the Criterion Theatre last night at the begin
ning of his special turn, and stood still. The
audtenco looked at him a second and then
40me ono laughed. George laughed a little,
and somo ono else laughed. Then the risibi
lities of the audience were stirred to their
depths, and such a good old-fashioned laugh
as the patrons of that house enjoyed, will be
long remembered. And what were they
laughing at ? Why nothing in particular but
Wilson, but they seemed to think it was time
to laugh and did so. Tho minstrel organiza
tion Mr. Wilson has with bim this season, is
second to very few, if any, in the country. Tho
blngers aro of the best, the comedians of a
higher class than usually seen in minstrel
shows, and the Instrumentalists excellent."
Piices for this occasion will Lie 25, ."50, 75c. and
31. Tho Balo of seats will begin on Monday
morning at tho box office.
The opening attraction at Lincoln Hall will
be W. S. Cleveland's consolidated mlnstrols

Wednesday evenings and special matinee on
Wednesday. Everybody and everything is
promised to lie absolutely new. Among tho
prominent members aro Arther Rigby, that
funny follow who does not bore you; John
Queen, tho clover young comedian and fun pro
'ducer, tho four emperors of music, Black
ford, Howard, Russell, and Talbert.
Ouda, who Is called the incarnate spirit of
the air, is Manager Cleveland's latest
Importation, and his performances In midair
aro said to bo more than marvelous. Roto,
equilibrist, in IiIb pedestal ladder act, Glrard
Leon, from tho Folies Bergers, Paris, aud his
troupe of operatic donkeys, Edgar Wilson,
London's descriptive baritone, Billy Lyons
new burlosque star and a trained vocal corps
of twenty-five trained voices and a solo orches
tra of selected solo instrumentalists.
Robert Downing's Season.
A dramatic writer says: "Probably there is
no moro promising young actor before tho
American public to-day than Robert Down
ing. Fortunately for himself ho has estab
lished a Buro footing in that legitimate school
of acting wherein a reputation once obtained
llvos In tho history of tho stage after tho actor
lias passed beyond tho bourne of tho living.
Nature lias admirably fitted him for tho
presentation of characters cast In tho heroic
mould, and the actor has judiciously supple
mented the work of nature with some admir
able art. Ho possesses thophyslqueof a gladia
tor and tho soul of an artist. There aro few
upon tho American stage who can portray
moro delicately tho feelings, A voice that
might hayo served for tho stentors In the days
of old, has, in tho milder words of character,
a musical sweetness, rich, melodious, yibrant,
that delights tho ear. Ho has tho faculty to
burst into passion and the ability to control
his action. In a word, ho Is an artist ono
upon whom in tho near future tho dramatic
mantle of greatness will fall." Mr, Downing
opens tho season at tho National Theatre
August 81, appearing in "Virglnlus,"
Next Soiison'H Stoddurd Lectures,
John L. Stoddard will signalize his thir
teenth yoar of public service by Introducing
for the first time lectures upon the American
continent. With this intention, ho has lately
completed a course of extended travel In Mex
ico, during which he was accompanied by Mr.
North and his photographer. Two lectures of
tho next sories will bo devoted to our neigh
boring republic, for tho Illustration of which
Mr. Stoddard has a collection of many hund
red original photographs.
Tho Dudley Buclr Quartette.
A party of gentlemen met at Professor Iso
inann's, on Tonth street, recently, and or
ganized tho Dudley Buck Quartette. The

second bays, Mr. Johu Nolan, the great bass
of St, Matthew's; Mr. .George Iseman, tho
orentilft of Georgetown University and St.
Augustine's Church, musical director. It
wlllbo seen that these four voices aro very Well
selected, and no doubt under the direction of
Professor Iseman they will give Washington
some very flue singing tho coming season.
The Casino Club's Opening Concort.

ON THE AVENUE.
The New Lyceum Thoatro Kntranco on
I'onnnylvnnla Avenue Completed.
A pretty thrco-storled building, painted In
BOf t, light yellow, and formerly known as 1014
Pennsylvania avenue, now has running across
Its facade, in letters of gold, "Lyceum Thea
tre." It is tho entranco to Manager Kernan's
now houso and was purchased for tho solo
purpose of connecting tho theatre with Wash
ington's great thoroughfare. It will be sur
mounted with an elaborate wlro sign, and have
a tall, conspicuous flagstaff. Its appearance
is highly attractive. Two massive double
doors open on an elegant vestibule, disclosing
tho handsomo lobby thatruns back eighty feet,
crossing tho old lobby, wh'ch opens on Elev
enth street, to bo rcservod henceforth for tho
gods of tho eallery. There are no steps to tho
now entrance; level with the street, tho lobby
goes smoothly back to the theatre. Tho now
lobby is handsomely finished, and when lighted
up, will present a rich aud attractive ap
pearance. It contains tho box office, which is
larce and comfortable, elaborately finished,
with an imposing exterior, and three hand
some windows of stained glass. The length
of tho new lobby facilitates tho sheltering of
quite a long lino of patrons. Especially attrac
tive i6 the archway that rises nt the opening
cut between the building and tho theatre.
Hollowed out here aro several niches which
will support appropriate ornaments. Not only
this but tho entire Interior of tho theatre pre
sents a fresh and attractive appearance. It
has been thoroughly renovated, redecorated
and upholstered. The floor of the dreos circle
has been raisod, thereby making tho view of
the stage better. The chair In the tier, as well
as In the parquet, will ho reserved. Smoking
and drinking will positively be prohibited. Re
freshments will be served only at the bar, and
smoklnc will bo permitted in the smoking
room only. The appointments will be such as
will Insure tho patronago of both ladles and
gentlemen. Manager Kernan paid $33,000 for
tho property conblstlng of tho new entrance,
and has expended over $7,000 in remodeling
tho building. Sale of seats will open Monday
morning, Aueust 10, at 10 o'clock, for Bobby
Gaylorfn "Sport McAllister," Augutl7.
Proposed Trip of tho Sharpshooters.
Company A, Fifth Battalion (the Sharp
shooters), have finally decided on a march to
Harpers' Ferry and an encampment there. It
was at first determined to make tho summer
encampment at Winchester, but for various
reasons tho project was abandoned. The
command will leave tho city at 7 a. m. on tho
16th Inst., in heavy marching order with
wagons carrying their tents and bagcago as if in
an actual campaign. Tho company will number
about thirty-five rifles. The tents will bo
pitched In front of tho hotel at Harper's
Ferry and an experienced cook has been bor
rowed from the arsenal to provide for the
messes as tho boys will furnish their own pro
visions. It will not bo altogether a holiday
time, however, as targets will bo carried along
and there will be dally drills and practice at
tho ranges. Including tho marches to the
Ferry and return tho company will be absent
about fifteen days. About fifty of tho mem
bers of tho National Guard will join tho camp
for practice In sharpshootlng.
Membors of tho Itochdnlo Co-oporiitlvo

flat refusal of dealers connected with tho
Washington Coal Exchange to allow us any

AT GliEN ECHO.
Kceoptlon to MlgH Clliru Durton-Tlio
Tho most notable of all tho receptions at
Glen Echo, historically, will bo that which
was given by tho management in honor of
Clara Barton in tho Hall of Philosophy on
Friday evening, from 0 to 8 p. m. Tho
reception co mmltteo, of whom Miss Pierce,
tho teacher of tho Shakespeare class, was
chairman, consisted of Mrs Philander Johnson,
Miss Lily Lockwood, Miss May 'Borso, and
Mrs. E. L. Sherwood, who decorated tho hall
boautlfully vtlth field flowers, trailing vines,
and draped flags. Miss Barton lobked regal
In a trailing robe of black velvet, a pansy
front of Bilk veiled In rare laco, and her brill
ant souvenirs on her breast. Rugs were placed
for tho receiving party to stand on. Ttio
ladles assisting In receiving were Mrs. Dr. Gil
lot, Mrs. Dr. Elliot, Mrs. Edwin Baltzley, and
Mrs. M. S. Lockwood. Mrs. Sarah Spencer
stood beside Miss Barton aud mado tho In
troductions. Tho hall was packed with people
anxious to take Miss Barton by tho hand. Dr.
Glllet made a brief introductory address, in
which ho said that tho woman beside him
(Miss Barton) "would in future years bo re
membered by the Chautauquans with pride,
as ono of those who contributed most to
tho success of Glen Echo during its earliest
and greatest time of need." Miss Spencer
then asked: "What brought Clara Barton to
Glen Echo, where there was neither war, pes
tilence, nor flood?" She answered her own
question by Baying that Miss Barton began
her career as a teacher and lover of youth, and
she would end it in an educational atmos
phere, with young people all about her. Miss
Barton's remarks were very characteristic,
and revealed her loyalty to high Ideals, friend
ship, und good works, especially of a public
character. Mrs. Daly, tho contralto, sung
with great power and artistic finish, "The
Better Land," and tho Philharmonic Quar
tette, Dr. Glllet said, felt it an honor to sing
ono of their songs on such an occasion.
Among those present wore Commodore Rock
bottom, a relative of Miss Barton's Mr. and
Mrs. Stephen Barton and their daughter, of
Boston, near relatives; Mrs. Marcus Baker.
Dr. Ida Helburger, Miss NordhofE, Dr. and
Mrs. Lamb, Mies Bennett, Mrs. Novin, of.
Encland; Mrs. Best Campbell, Mrs. and Miss
Reed, Miss Scull, Miss Kennedy, Mr. and
Mrs., Springer," Mr. Jennings, tho secretary,
Dr. Daly aud friends, Mrs. Mills.
Lot Us nave Peaco.
The peace meeting at Glen Echo on Tues
day was an interesting one. There were
two sessions, ono in tho morning and tho other
in the afternoon. Alfred H. Love, of Philadel
phia, piesident of the Universnl Peaco
Union was on the platform, as was also Mrs.
Belva Lockwood who presided, and Rev.
Amanda Day, of Scranton, Pa., who made one
of thobest speeches of the day. Mrs. Harriet
N. Ralston, of Washington, read an original
poem of much beauty, while Mrs. Agnes
Vaille, of Philadelphia, furnished vocal music.
Mr. William E. Curtis In the afternoon ses
sion read an able paper on the results of the
Pau American Congress, which, In Its work
for reciprocity, he regarded as one of tho
promoters of peaco and prosperity. Mrs. M.
D. Lincoln read an able paper on "Peace and
Chautauqua." Mr. E. Frank Carson, of
Philadelphia, and Dr. Bland each gave
thoughtful papers. Mrs. Emma Beckwlth, at
one time candidate for Mayor of Brooklyn, N.
Y., attracted a pood deal of attention from
that fact, as well as the well considered paper
she read on "Peaco and Strikes." Mrs. M.
Louiso Thomas, of New York, sent a letter of
regret, which was read and ordered to bo pub
lished in the Peacemaker. The apostles of
peaco are not a host in numbers, but numerous
instances are on file in the archives of tho State
Department which testify to their influence
among the governors of nations. The latest
is in regard to the difficulties in Venezuela,
which tho Union asked for arbitration of
through Mr. Blaino and Lord Salisbury, and
the request so gently made was heeded. Fol
lowing is the poem read by Mrs. Ralston:
INVOCATION TO PEACE.
Within yon vast and deep profound,
The planets movo in solemn round,
And stars and suns increase;
Whilo no disturbing forces aliango
The order of their endless ranco
In realms of perfect peace.
No echoes roll thro' countless years
Along: the path of! circling spheres,
Sounding; without surcease;
Silent within tho vaults above
Those distant orbs majestic movo,
Attuned to perfect peace.
Each shines, a grand, distinctive sign,
And constellated lights combine.
As stars and suns lucrouso;
Whilo thus in harmonies they roll,
Eaoh magnot vibrates to its polo
Throughout those roalins of peaco.
In bounds defined, oaoh occult force,
Mystorlous as its mystic source,
ExlBts without release;
And powers Invisible co-act.
Subservient unto laws oxaot,
In realms of perfect peaco.
So, in tho universe of mind,
Each force maintains its place assigned.
Guiding, yot still controlled;
Thought delves for ore In wisdom's ralnoa ,
And fancy sweeps beyond confines
Faith grasps with firmer hold.
While royal reason dominates,
All selfish greed, all cruel bates,
Dormant and poworless lie;
At its behest florco passions sleep,
No just control desires o'erleap,
And lurking dangers ily.
Yet vain, presumptuous man conspires,
As reason from her throne retires,
Conditions to displace;
To break the harmonies of life.
To strike tho Jangling chords of strjfo,
And human souls debase.
Stay, gentle peace I No sun, no moon,
No guiding ray so Bweet a boon,
No presence so benign;
No gift with heavenly grace so fraught,
Jn realms of space, in realms of thought,
In love's domain, as thino I
Haiuukt n. Ralston.
A Itotronpoct und u Look Ahead.
Yesterday was the closing day of tho second
session of the Chautauqua of Glen Echo. Tho
programme for tho day consisted of a musical
prelude at 3 p, m, in which Vitale and Fan
nelll leappeared amidst great euthuslasm with
harp and violin; Professor Baker and Miss
Johnson sang solos. At 2:80 Mr. Robert
Niven gave tho closing lecturo of his course
on "Matthew Arnold as Poet and Critic,"
Miss PJerce give two readlugs to her Shako-,
pearo class to close the study of "Macbeth."
At 4 p. m. somo interesting facts were set
forth by Dr. Gilletand others. Ho stated that
Glen Echo Chautauqua Is now legally Incor
porated under the laws of West Virginia, that,
the association had received from Edwin and
Edward Baltzley a donation of sixty acre- of
land, worth $100,000. Tho arcade, other build
ings, gradlnc, Improvements, chorus Organ,
water and se'wer system, advertising, cost of
programme, and other Incidental expenses In
clusive for two months, make a total of ex
penditures of $354,800. Tho total Indebtedness
of tho property, now worth not less than half
a million dollurs. Is less than $40,000 which la
being rapidly reduced by tho payment of m a
turlng obligations. Tho most serious diffi
culty the management hero had to contend
with through this first session was tho lack of
ndequato transportation. During tho first few
days thousands endeavored to reach tho
grounds and wero compelled to turn back dis
appointed. This difficulty Is growing less
every day. Before another session tho Qlon
Echo lino will bo completed to tho grounds,
and tho Baltimore nnd Ohio Railroad, now"
building from Linden on the Metropolitan
branch to Intersect tho Virginia Midland, and
a short lino from Georgetown to the Great
Falls is contemplated, which, with barges, on
the renovated canal, will furnish ample facili
ties for tho future Tho trustees regard tho
successful carrylnn out of a long and expensive
programmo against such difficulties as a re
markable augury of a Buccossful future. Dr.
Georgo Elliot, who has spent tho whole season
at the Glen as a worker, mado a few felicitous
remarks which were supplemented by others
on tbo platform.
Glen Echo Notes.
On lost Saturday a farewell reception -was
tendered Professor Woodruff, tho popular
organist of Glen Echo, who has been at the
Glen since tho opening of tho Juno session.
Mr. Woodruff's popularity brought everybody
at the Glen out to tho Red Cross Building on
tho closing night of his stay among thom.
Regret was expressed by all in fitting words
of appreciation, but his musical brethren
honored him with an immense medal made of
straw. Now, the Professor and two others had
been seen recently capering by moonlight on
tho green on tho night of the dedication of
Vitale's lot, ond an Impromptu court was
convened then and, there, and tho three
criminals wero tried, Clara Barton presiding
as judge with great dignity and enjoying a bit
of fun with tho best. Tho jury consisted of
eight women, whom tho defendant addressed
as my "brithren of the jury." Professor
Woodruff proved an alibi, and one of tho
other victims escaped on tho plea of Insanity,
tho third was ready to prove that it was her
astral being that did dance and not herself,
but the jury in spite of all these facts brought
in a verdict of "not guilty," thus enabling tho
musical professor to fill his other eneagements
outside of Glen Echo. Mr. Barton was an able
Yesterday Miss Clara Barton, and her
nephew, Mr. Stephen Barton, his wife and
daughter, and Dr. Hubbell, set off for
an extensive trip ' South and West.
Their first objective point, however, is
Detroit, whero they will bo at tho
opening of the G. A. R. annual gathering
August 4. Tho party expect to visit California,
New Mexico, and many places of interest in
tho Southwest, probably being absent some
three or four mouths. During Miss Barton'g
absence, MIbs Kennedy will have charge of
tho Red Cross Building at Glen Echo. .
The two lectures by tho Rev. G. Chapman
Jones, of Rochester, N. Y., on "Our Folks"
and "Americanisms," at Glen Echo the past
week wero wise, witty, and most enjoyable.
Mr. Jones is a gentleman of much culture,
and he has a style of delivery marked by much
At the close of the evening lecture in the
amphitheatre, Glen Echo, the Peace meeting
guests wero tondered a reception In the Red
Cross Hall by Miss Clara Barton and others.
Speeches, songs, and delicious lomonado re
freshed tho inner and intellectual man of the
Miss Imogen S. Pierce's classes In Shakes
peare at Glen Echo have been very thorough
and exhaustive studies of tho plays "Mid Sum
mer Night's Dream," "Tho Tempest," and
Messrs. Vltalo and Fannolli's reappearance
at Glen Echo caused much pleasure. They
will remain at the Glen until August 15.
The End of Slander.
The following Incident recently happened
at Newark, Ohio:
A band of women, it seems, wero going
from houso to houso in that city, In the em
ploy of a certain baking powder company,
trying to discredit every brand of baking
powder except their own. They performed
certain so-called tests, but these, as will ap
pear later, were really tricks to deceive un
They called at tho residence of Mr. Danner,
tho well-known groceryman, whero thoy were
most cleverly caught in their own trap.
It camo about in this way. Mr. Dauncr
(who happened to bo homo at tho time they
called), being well posted In such trlck6,
knew that the canvassers Intended to say tho
worst things about tho most popular biand.
He, therefore, without their knowledge, took
an empty Royal Baking Powder can and filled
it with tho very powder these canvassers
were trying to boom It was Cleveland's.
Tho so-called tost was then applied to tho
powder in the proffered can, and, of course,
the result announced, with all tho assuranco
of professional charlatans, that tho powdor
tested contained all manner of obnoxious In
gredients. When, however, Mr. Danner informed
them that they had really boen testing their
own powder instead of the Royal, it is un
necessary to say that the uneasiness and as
tonishment of the "frauds" caused them to
move on with unusual haste.
Peoplo are becoming weary of these pests
of the kitchen, and it Is quite rare that thoy
will give audience or opportunity to such
plausible tricksters; but it is quite evident
that those who do not close their doors to
such attempts must expect to bo "hum
bugged." i n . i i
