i jioncver, threo favorites of the Charles Froh
0.n stock company had tho serious roles, and
' that was siilllclont'to command u closeness of
sttcntlon which tho audlcnco might not havo
riven otherwise. Viola Allen wns tho wlfo

Gilciou nun tho husband's bosom friend and tho
wife's clandestine wooor. It will bo seen that
tho complication was neither now nor strange,
and hen the tlrst curtain fell thcro had been no
1 MTel development. Tho action had related to
' tho preparations of tho married two to depart
' for Australia, and tlie Brief of tho orrlng two at
tho forthcoming separation. Tho second net
was st the chambers of tho bachelor,
, md tho wlfo ennio thcro clandestinely
I ,( night, not with tho worst intent,
' butwithavnguo, Irroststlblo desire to be with
Um. Tho Interview resulted in tho woman re
luctantly yielding to tho man's will so far as to
decide to llvo henceforth with htm. Then her
husbaud canio to pay a farewell visit to his
chain, and the wlfo had to bo hastily hidden in
in adjoining room. Quito conventional all this
wu, and tho promise of anything romnrkablo
farther on In tho play was small. But tho
husband ascertained that somebody's wlfo,
whose sin was as yet In thought and not
In deed, was thcro in concealment, and ho
made a successful effort to avert tho calamity
that threatened. lie condemned his friend for
his wicked folly and tho woman for hers, and by
his sound arguments ho induced them to part
company then and there. A sccno In which tha
reproved woman passed through the room, and
behind her husband, who did not Imagine that
his words of wise counsel was saving hi own
wife's honor, was unusual and Impressive.
It was at that point that tho play took on an
unconventional aspect; but even so, when tha
curtain fell again, tho threo characters were
laft In a predicament out of which it was hard
for any dramatist to extricate them without
resorting to old expedients. It was clear that
the husband and wife were going to bo recon
ciled some way. Of course, she would turn con
trite and begin to love her husband, but
the outlook for anything- dramatically po
pular seemed as unpromising as boforo.
But George Fleming, although she had written
. faultily in somo respects, and had practised
statecraft crudely, had dovlsed an original and
'' sxcsllent way out of the matrimonial dilemma.
, The third act was In Australia, where the hus
band superintended a mine. In the year that
iu elapsed ho had nearly died of a fever, and
kid been tenderly nursed back to life by the now
faithful wife. But ho was unresponsive to her
advances, because, having learned by accident
:' that it was she who had been in his friend's
chambers, ho believed that her heart was still
false and truant. So, still loving her dovotedly
' and thinking himself about to die, he summoned
', the friend from England, and told him
that he must become her second husband.
Then word came that the mine was tilling
with water, and that It was necessary
that somtbody should lead a rescue party. The
deed meant almost certain death. Tho husband
prepared to do It, bat the friend, knowing by this
time that the happiness of the woman be loved
could be assured thereby, went bravely Into tho
mine and was killed. The wife supposed it was
her husband who had lost his life, and when ho
came back alive she threw herself into his arms
' with sad. &lrunuo:t of joy that he could not
doubt she loved him at last. TS03 " A Man end
His Wife" came to a flrst-rate climax, and
proved itself a good play. It was tlnely acted,
not alone by Miss Allen, Mr. Faversham. and
Mr. Edcson. but also by Jameson Lee Finney
and Ida Conquest in comic roles.
Opportunity to see "The Tempest" per
formed on theatage ore- rare.- A few are now
offered at Dal r's Theatre. The claaalo extrara
' ganxa ot 'Shakespeare was reproduced
there last night In a suitably fantastic
and ornamental fashion. Tho acting was
leu brilliant than tho scenery. It is true, but It
was all of a respectable quality and some of it
was satisfactory. George Clarke spoke the preg
nant lines of Prospcro with clear meaning and
much dignity. Charles Richman was a hand
some and ardent Ferdinand.
Nancy Mcintosh's art In acting Is small
as yet, bat she answered fairly to tho
light requirements of Miranda, was
very sweet and gentle, and sang charm

Jtjorous Artel, and her slntrlng was pleasant.

Positive Evidence Tnat lie Was at Dansvllle. .
V,, and at Lakewood, St. J., at the Name lime.
Tho caso of Alonzo T, Whltcman, onco ox
Senator In tho Minnesota Legislature, who Is on
trial boforo Judge FiUgerald In Part IV., Gen
eral Sessions, will probably go to tho jury to
day. Whltemnn is accused ot obtaining $51)0
from the Columbia Bank on Feb. S3 on tho
strength of a deposit of a worthless check. Tho
name tho swindler gavo at the bank was "Dr.
J. II. Williams." Whltcman says ho was in
Dansvillo on Feb. S3. On tho othor hand tho
otllclols ot tho bank positively ldontlfy him as
tho man who. under the name of Williams, stolo
the bank's nionoy.
For tho defence, yesterday. Lawyer E. M. Grout
called Edward E. Ward. Ward said he was a
minister, but at present was studying law in
Dansvillo in the ofQceof District Attorney Lowe.
On Feb. 23, he said, Whltemnn was in Dansvllle,
0,10 miles from this city. Between 10 and 11
o'clock that morning Whltcman visited Lowe's
ofllco. It took twelvo hours to come here from
Half a dozen storekeepers and law students
corroborated Ward's testimony, averring that
they saw Whlteman in Dansvllle on Feb. 23.
Nearly all the witnesses fixed the dato by the
fact that there had been an entertainment In
tho Dansvllle Methodist Church on the night
before, which was Washington's Birthday. One
ot these witnesses, Frank J. Albertson, former
Justice of tho Peace in Dansvillo, sold: "I hail
nn awful headache that morning after the
Methodist Church entertainment.
" What made your head acho I asked Assist
ant District Attorney Uardwioke.
" Well," said the witness. "I guess it was be
cause I hadn't been to church in such a long
The Iter. Arthur N. Sykes, pastor of the Dans
vllle church, said Whlteman's mother was a
momber of the church. The night of tho enter
tainment there, Feb. 22, he expected to see
Whlteman. but was disappointed. On tho fol
lowing day he was walking through Main street
and saw Whlteman standing on the street.
Katie Auer. a clerk In a Dansvllle store, testi
fied that Whlteman visited the store on Feb. 23.
The prosecution then called several witnesses
James L Cohen, clerk of. the Lakewood Hotel,
Lakewood, N. J testified that Whlteman was
at the hotel during the month of February un
der the name of John I Whiting. On the morn
ing of the 23d of February, at 8 o'clock, he saw
Whltcman in the oHlcc. nnd Whltemnn said ho
-rriii toUij ti Nttr7o;k on the 8:30 train to
spend the day. At 3:30 o'clock Whlteman. who
was known as " Whiting," returned to the hotel,
paid his bill, and said ho was going to New York
to stay. He left the hotel to get the 6:30 train.
The porter of the hotel testified that he accom
panied Whlteman to tho train and carried
The baggage master of the Pennsylvania Rail
road testiued thnt he remembered Whlteman
calling at the otlice. foot of Liberty street, this
city, for the valise. The baggage check had been
lost and the baggage master bod received a tele
gram about it.
A Itnkerton detective and a Central Office de
tective testified to the finding of a blank check
in Whlteman's valise aftor Whlteman had been
arrested. The check was one of the Brooklyn
City National Bank and was similar to tho
worthless check that was deposited with the
cnusAitixa fob jwidless hath.
BrMklyn Clvltaa Club Adds a Bannet BahlbU
tlea to IU flprtttv Batbnatasma.
Birdless hats and bonnets are the special fea
ture of the Clvltas Club's exhibit this spring at
its rooms, ICO Jorolemon street, Brooklyn. Every
season tbo cntliUBlastlo young women of this
Brooklyn organization nick out somenew scheme
to break the monotony of social amusements.
Sometimes It Is Improved ash barrels; sometimes
municipal reform, and once the club all but split
on woman suffrage. Tho birdless hat effort
promises to be one of the most interesting cru
sades yet taken up; for It is a crusade aimed
ngnlnst tho use of birds upon fcmlnlno headgear,
and the members of the club havo pone into the
movement energetically. That ls why the rooms
looked like a millinery shop In full bloom yes
terday. There wero hats enough there to fill n theatre:
big hats and little bats, hats with ribbons and
flowers nnd puffs, and frills, and furbelows, and
streamers, and bows, and all kinds of devices
for increasing beauty and expense: hats of til no
and green and pink nnd purple, and unholy com
binations of these colors; but not a single hnt for
which a bird had sacrificed its life and only a
fow for which It had sacrificed Its tall feathers.
" We want to prove by Illustration." said one
or toe young women in cnargo oi me uispify.
"that a bonnet or a lint can he Just as protty and
stylish without a bird as with one. That Is
what this exhibition is: a sort of object losson."
"But you've got quills on Borne of them, and
ostrich feathers too," objected a visitor. ''You
don't llvo up to your principles."
" We haven't got any ostriches nor tho birds
-the quills came from," was tho roply. "Thoo
ostrich feathers don't count. They're just tall
feathers, you know, und the ostrich sheds them.
Ali we want to do is to bring about n sentiment
against killing birds for hats."
" I don't beliove the ostrich sheds them at all.
said the objector. "Tho men como and pull
them out, and I daro say It's a very cruol pro
cess. If I wero an ostrich with n beautiful
bunch of feathers like that, I'd rather bo killed
mercifully than suffer tbo Indignity of having
them pulled out."
"Any way, thoro aron t very many ostrich
fenthers here," was the final defence of the
Many women visited tho rooms and admired

Polletman Howry, who arretted a mombor
of the Fire Patrol sovernl days ngo for "lice
sing anil kissing a girl in the open street in a
scandalous manner." is ono of the few Greeki
on the police force nnd his Ideas of propriety
are Severn. Ills zeal In po 'forming ills duties
has earned for htm the name ot the Pious Cop.
"When Howry was a probationary police
man about two years ago," snld member of
hts squad, "be wru attached tn tbe East Sixty
seventh street station, and a regular was as
signed U show him the ropes. Tlie mentor
took Howrv around tho precinct, ai.d on hs
.way back Invited him to have a Disss ot beer.
Hnwrr declined. Ills guide, however, did
drink a glaas of beer, nnd then the two men
returned to tbe station houso. Tho mentor
was surprised when Howry promptly walked
up to the desk and preferred a charge airnlntt
him for drinking while on duty."
This story may 'or may not be true, but It
Is Bsnerally believed by the men who knew
Howrv. He ls easily shocked, and he takos
himself seriously stall times.
The late P. T. B&rnum frequently turned to
bis own advantage crowds that ho caused to
collect In front ot his old museum by the
simplest de rices. When business was dull he
would send a man out Into the street with In
Junctions to carefully lay down several bricks
at regular intervals on tbo sldotvalkln a de
liberate and mysterious manner, and nsson
as ho had attract d attention he was to ptok
them tto'and walk Into tho museum. Some ot
the people whos curloilty had been aroused
by this proceeding Invariably bought ticket i
nnd followed the bricklayer Inside. There Is
a Chinese lauudrytnan up on Sixth avenue
who may not have heard of IUrnum, but he has
evolved a somewhat, similar scheme tjbontn
his business. He not "illy washes clothes, but
also soils Chinese curios. Several weeks ago
hs started tn paint a sl.cn on hts front window.
The word "laundry" was to appear In big let
ters, nnd whon tho Chlnn'an seated himself In
tho window and began to paint a gaping crowd
collected outside. Perhaps the fact that tbo
Chinaman started to paint his sign backward,
beginning with tho "y," may havo beer.
th excuse for It. At any rate, the Chinaman
saw that he had stumbled upon a good thing,
and arter spending half an hour In palming
the two letters "r" and "y" bo retired to.tho
back of his shop. Several of the spectators
outsldo went In to look at his curios. Tho
Chinaman wiped out tbe two letters that he
had painted that evening, nnd on tbe following
afternoon painted them again for the entcr
talnmeullaf thecrnwd. He has leen working on
this sign ever sines, and It Is no nearer com
pletion. The crowd, that gathers each day tn
watch him has been the envy of every small
shopkooper in the blook.
Tho Gunners' Department In the Brooklyn
Navy Yard ls Just now an Interesting musenm
in Itself. Any one who can get. a permit from
the gunner In charge my visit It, and If ho
happens to be interested in tho development of
small arms he will be sure of entertainment.
There are In this department a lot of guns
showing the gradual Improvement In rifles
from the time ot Queen Anne of England to
the small-bore, high-power rifles ot to-day.
This collection Includes a lot ot Interesting old
flintlocks or the style used by tbe Arabs years
ago. A dealer In antiques discovered after the
war that tbe navy yard furnished a rich field
for purchases, and for many years he attended
all sales ot condemned weapons there. Not a
few guns ot historical interest wero sold at
various times for little moie than the value
of so much old Iron, and until the Government
stepped it tils dealer added to bis stock ot In
teresting weapons, nciwjso muohllu demand for
decorative purposes, at a very small price. It
has evsn been asserted that a sectlcn of the
big Iron chain that was stretched across the
Hudson River at W-tt Point during the Revo
lution was sold from the navy yard for old
iron. The Government suddenly awoke to the
value of historical guns and rllcs. and as a
result It has Its own museums, and the dealers
are forced to collect elsewhere.
Two young women shared with Miss Nether
sole the attention nf a part of the audience at
the Garden Theatre on Friday evening. The
play wns "Camille," and one of the young wo
men bad seen it before. It woe new to her
friend. When Miss Nethersole coughed the
first time Miss Know-it-all aald to her friend:
"Did you take notlco to that cough 1
Well, she's going to get consumption and die
before the play Is over."
"You don't f y so? And she so young, too."
"Yes, and that young man Vurrrl ls going to
fall In love with her. and then he'll think she
baa iteserted htm, and then he'll love her nil
"That's Just the way with men. It's a wise
girl that leaves them first. Say, I cou'.d play
that cart with the cough."
Alt this and much more nf the same kind
was aald in ra'ulnc whispers that curried as
'r as Miss Netber.ole's voice. Pennle who sat
near the twu loquacious yor.ne women turned
around nnl glared at them, but tbey didn't
itO0 exchanging Hews. The one who had seen
the ular before kejt Just a situation ahead of
the actors on the stage In her exolanalinns of
"Camille." Sho said fellnglv tint it was sai
for a girl so voung as Camille to lead such a
life, and when Camille wasdvlnc liotb young
women sniffled loudly. Camillc't death was. a
great relief tn every one who tat near there
two appreciative playgoers.
A few years ago an occasional woman won
admiration by setting herself resolutely nt
work when financial disaster overtook her and
tiers, and earning a good Income by some fortu
nate accomplishment which she found a was
nf using to advantage. To tbe old resources
of woman Kind In the way of milllnerv and
dressmaking were thus added the possibilities
In the way of a!t!ng people to avoid boring
one another. The advance made In this direc
tion Is shown bv the fact that at a dinner given
tne other evening nt a club tn women nil the
entertaining was done by women not of the
vaudeville tvne. One voting woman told hu
morous s nrles In nn effective miniter. another
gave recitations In dialect, a third whistled,
and soon, and In addition the Inevitable speeches
at a dinner of this character were mado bv
women, one of whom was a lawyer by profes
sion. The entertainment van enjoyed by the
gtiesta nor only onnccf.unt of Its novel charac
ter, but also because of Its merits.
People who go homo with the crowd on tho

but serious apprehension Is felt by many own

running trolley cars and elevated railroad

nnd the Crack that Springer Took Was
Tnken with a Toy Pistol The Bullet I,odre4
In llerger'a Toe Hence n Do maze Unit.
A butterfly was the primary cnuto of a suit
for $r,OO0 dnmnges brought before Justice
Dickey In tho Supremo Court in Long Island
City yesterdny. On July 3, 18115, Charles Bergcr
eat on the stoop of his parents' houso nt Stein
way nvrnuo nnd tho Shore rond. Ho was chnt
ting with Freddy Sprnguc, n youngster In tho
neighborhood. Tho dny wns dcllclously warm,
and Borger stretched his legs nt full length und
contemplated tho bright blue sky, Tho butterfly
hero entered upon the scene. Ithndpllod Its
brilliant wings for fifteen minutes nmong the
tnll woods of on adjoining lot. And now, thor
oughly tired, it fluttered about pecking a resting
place. Tho too of Bergcr's boot looked invltlnn;,
and thcro tho butterfly settled.
At this juncture Henry Springer, the eighteen-year-old
son of Rudolph Springer, enmo up. Ho
had a toy pistol. Springer eyed the butterfly
critically, and said to Bergcr:
"Say, can I havo n cruck ut that I"
"Sure," replied Bergcr yawning. Ho thought
Springer meant to whisk it off with his hand.
Instead tbo boy whipped out tho pistol nnd
pulled tho trigger. Hero tho butterfly disap
pears from tho story. Tbe little bullet found a
resting placo in Bcrger's big toe. Ilcrgerranto
a neighboring drug store and had his foot
In court yesterday Bergor told how much pain
the Injured toe had given him and swore that
ho had been unfitted thereby for his work as a
driver, and that the best he could do now wns to
work nt odd Jobs, He was euro Springer didn't
have the pistol in his hand when he made the
request to "hnvo a crnek nt it." Bergcr was
very indignant to think that lawyer Haiincmnn.
for tho dofener, could liiiaglno Jifm guilty of be
ing such a fool as to glvo his consent to bo shot.
Springer, n bright youth, who said with lordly
self-commiserntlon, "I was only sixteen then,
was sure that Bergcr saw tho pistol In his bund.
"Is this the pistol t" queried Lawyer Hanno
man, handing up a small weapon.
"Bo sure tnat It ls unloaded boforo you band
it to the witness!" snld Justlco Dickey.
"Oh," replied tho attorney, "it's immaterial,
anyway, whether It's loaded or not now."
It Is very material, Indeed," returned bis
Honor, rising. "See that that thing Isn't loaded
before handing It to this witness."
That caution being attended to, tho youth
ldcntlflod It, Freddy Sprairue was next called.
"Now," said Lawyer Hanneman, "tell Just
what happened, mid fell It briefly."
" Henry Springer shot Charles Berger in tho
toe," snld Master Hprague.
This being u little too brief, be was asked for a
few nioro details. He corroborated Berger in
that the pistol wns out of sight when Springer
naked If he might have "a crack at it."
"He aimed at the butterfly, didn't he I" asked
" es," said the boy.
"And ho didn't bit It, did he I" interjected
Lawyer Dustier, with a laugh.
" Oh. yes ho did." said Spraguo. " Tho butter
fly was Hinasbcd to bits."
Tho case was then given to the jury, but ono
of them, Henry Spellman, was taken ill and hnd
to lie sent homo In u coach. A scalod verdict
will be bunded in to-morrow.
1IOSPITAZ. XO PLACE POR A BABY.
Tbey Ble or Ils.pltnll.m"-Wrm. BJsrk Baby
Causes This Admlsalon.
Louise BJork, a Swedish woman who boards
with Mrs. Knoll at 2781 Eighth avenue, became
convinced recently that her fonr-months-old
baby bad been badly treated at the Nursery and
Child's Hospital at Fifty-first street and Lexing
ton avenue, to which she took it for treatment.
After leaving the child three weeks in the hos
pital, sho took it out in nn apparently dying con
dition with what looked like a wound in tho
back of tbo child's head. Tho child's body was
covered with u rash. Mrs. Knoll called the at
tention of tho pollce.to the caso. nnd. through
them, the Bjork woman's complaint reached tho
Gerry Society. Dr. W. F. Newman, tlie house
physician of the hospital, denied that the child
had suffered through any neglect of tbe hos
pital authorities. On the contrary, he declared,
everything possible was done for It.
"Tbe woman, who Is unmarried, brought her
child here on March 13 In a very uncleanly
state," said Dr. Newman yesterday. " It was
suffering from nrborrhora c;7ia, an eczemlc
afllctlon, which caused tbo marks on thn head,
nnd It also hud eruptions on the 1ki.1v. It
weighed 8 pounds 4 ounces, or six pounds less
than theuieragu weight of u normally healthy
Imhy. Im principal cuue of complniiit wns
marasmus. 1 tried to discourage the woman
from allowing her child to come into the hospi
tal, as we do In all cases.
" It has been my experience, nnd. I think. It Is
the general experience nmong Institutions ot
this sort, thnthospitols nrenn places for infants.
Ilesplti'iil! tlif rare und attention which they re
ceive, they ulmnst invariably die w hen under six
mouths old. The reason is perfectly clear. It Is
simply u caso of hospitalism; that ls, where
there are so many children together, they nre
subject to all sorts of troubles. Wo bnvn usually
from 200 to 225 Infants under one year In tlie
hospital, and It ls impossible to have wet nurses
for allot them. We get tbo lieat milk iu tbe
market. It costs 18 cents u quart, hut Infanta
brought up on tho bottle aro always subject to
"This child gained a llttlo the second week it
wnB here, but lost two ounces tho net week, so
that It was pricticnlly In the same condition
hen It was taken away as w hen It came lu. We
tell every mother who brings her child hero that
It will probably die. so ns to dissuade them from
louYliig them, us they can do more for their chil
dren thuu we can."
The Uorry Society was satisfied with the ex
planatlon of the doctor.

WOMAX LAWYER WIXS TWO CASES.
Both or Miss noblnson's Clients In Npeelnl sea
Lawyer Nellie O. Robinson of 35 Ilroadwny
bad two caBes in Special Sessions yesterdny.
She removed her hat before she appeared In her
professional capacity. Her first client was Ed
gar Drauer, who was charged with having stolen
thirty-nine boxes of strawberries from Henry
Lewis, a fruit peddler living at 218 Deluticey
street, Lewis took the stand and related bow
thrco weeks ago ho had given Braucr tho straw
berries to sell. Draucr did not return with the
money, but got drunk on it.
" Where did you give him the berries I" asked
Assistant District Attorney Matthews.
"On Myrtle avenue. Brooklyn," was tho reply.
" Your Honors," said Miss Robinson, " I think
my client ls entitled to a discharge, since the al
leged offence was committed outside of the Juris
diction of this court."
"The point 1b well taken," replied Presiding
Justlco Jerome. "The prisoner is discharged.
Miss Robinson's other client was by this tlmo
ready to plead. She was Mrs. Margaret Tiuio
ner of Cherry Hill, who assaulted ber husband,
John, two weeks ago with a plate. John was
not in court.
"Owing to tho absence of a complainant,"
moved SIlss Robinson, "and the fact that the
injuries were of such a slight character, I move
the discharge of the prisoner."
"Discharged." said Justice Jerome, and Miss
Robinson left the court room, smiling.
"I was admitted to tho practice of law four
years ago In Columbus, O.," said sbo later, "and
afterward practised In Cincinnati. Sly first coao
was when two old maids wanted to have their
names changed. Their mother had married
three times and her last husband's namo was
Graff. It was bv that name thnt both the women
were known, although one as really Sladellne
Potts and tho other was Mary Warschafaky.
Judge Slllcs O. Wilson asked mo If it was my
first case, and I told blm it was. Then he said
he would change the names of my clients, but
that I should never ask him to change my own
name. I told him when 1 wanted to do that I
would go to a minister."
In 16'Jt SIlss Robinson applied for a license to
act as a Notary Public, but Oov. SIcKinley re
fused to grant IU lhe appealed, and the Cir
cuit Court overruled the Governor and Issued
tho license. Afterward the Supreme Court sus
tained the Governor, und then SIlss Robinson
canio to this city. Sbo was admitted to the New
York bor last August.
