Ho Atlvlips Manhattan Stockholders to Vote
for Clinnce of Motive l'oirer.
Prosldont George Gould sent a statement to
tho stockholders of tho Manhattan Klevated
Railway Company yestordny. of which tho fol
lowing Is an extract:
"Pursuant to tho request of tlio Board of Di
rectors of tho Manhattan Hallway Company. I
hao been conductinc during tha tiast year a
most exhaustlvo inostlKntion relative to n
chance of motive powor on tho railways of this
"Those lnvesticntlons havo embraced ths
ccneratlon. distribution and use of electric
power on both elevntod and surface railways
by every Important plant In this country, par
ticularly thoso in New York, Brooklyn and
Chlcaco. Tho most cousonatlva estimates
mado by exrerts show a savlnc of !!' cents
per mile on the entire car mileairo of the ela
atod roads. As wo aro now runnlim over
40.000.000 car miles annually, tho taslntt in
oporatlnc expenses alono will bo o or $1,000,
000 a year, which, with othor economies ios
siblo, Is sufficient to pay 15 per eont. on tlio
SIK.OOO.OOO capital which it Is pioposod to put
Into tho clovattd roads, and 1 per cent, addi
tional on the present capital.
"Ttois result will be effected by the ilecrease
in expenses of operation, oven if the oilect of
tho chance of motive powor nnd othor im
niovetcsnts should not add ono passeneer to
the present tiafllc. When tlio ciianco lias ben
mndo wo should bo able to run 'JO rer cent,
more cars to a train and tho sneod of tho trains
will bo increased from 10 to 18 ner cent. Dur
ing thoso hours of tho day when truffle Is lisht
our tiains now run on somo of tlio lines on .1
six-miiiuto headway: when the proposed
;hanue Is made, wo will bo enabled to run ears
without any additional expense on a headway
of a minute and a half. Tho cars, stations and
i-talrways cnu bo better llKhted nnd made
much more comfortable and attractive, and It
is believed to bo feasible to error, elevators at
the more important stations. Thero beliui no
unoko or cinders, the company will bo enabled
to run opon cars In tho si.mmer time.
"I repent that after careful and doliboraU
consideration, the Hoard of Directors nnd ex
ecutive olllcers concur In tho opinion that the
proposed chance, by reason of the deoreised
operating expenses, tho increased carrying
capacity of tho road, and tho comfort and con
venience of passencers. is one which oucht
not to bo looter delayed.
"In order to provide the means for making the
chanKO. tho dlroctors havo eoncluded. as the
best method, to create and lsstio S18.000.000
Par value of additional stock, llrst to be of
fered to the stockholders nt par
"In ordor to mako the elmtico to provide for
the necessary new plnnt and equipment, the
directors have deemed It well to provide for
the issue of $18,000,000 of stock. Whatever
surplus of the S18.000.OtX) mav not bo needed
for tho purposes aforesaid will bo used bv tho
company for the Immediate enlargement nnd
Improvement of Its svstem In reaching these
conclusions, the President and directors of tlio
company have proceeded with great caution,
havo made careful investigations, nnd are of
the opinion that tho change and consequent
Improvements ought to bo made, and thoro
foro recommend tho stockholders to give it
"Stockholders will bo civen tlio richt of tak
ing the new stock nt par, on tho basis of M)
per cent, of their holdings, concerning which
further communication will be rninln to tho
stockholders after their mooting of l'ob. 'J8."

Probably forr portions who remomborl.ydla

know that sho Is still alive and In Txmdou.
8h Is shortly to bo tho benoflclary of per
formance given them to rollove her financial
dinicultlc'. whloh nro just now rather foo
pressing for hor comfort. Until n few months
ago she was acting old women s parts In tho
London theatres.nnd has retired now on ac
count of bad health. Many actresses who
subsequently achieved famo In very different
directions enmo hero first with her troupes of
so-catled British blondes Boso Coghlnn was
ouu of litem nnd Ada Cavendish nnothor Ada
Hnrlaml. Paulino Mnrklinm and Harry Beck
ett woro othor membors of her company who
subsequently bccnnio well known here. It.
was in J Hi to that Miss Thompson came first to
Now York wllh her cohorts nnd made an I111
prosslon which has lasted until this Mmo nnd
lemnlr.cd tho stutidnrd bv which nil similar
performances nro measured. 8I10 returned
snvoral times to tills country and aftor her vis
its cc.'i-id tho form of entertainment sho rep
resented continued In favor for only a few
sensons longer I'nllke Bmlly Holdono. who
used to bring to this country performances of
an equally elovatlng ehnractor. Miss 'ihomn
Hon will not write her momolrs. Thoy misfit
Piovo liilciestimr rending if tho popular im
pression nbout tho vlvaeltv of the old compa
nies Is a true one. Thero has boon teeent tes
timony, however, to tho effect Ihnt thoso or
giitilrntlons woro as decorous and well be
haved ns nny that ever enmo to this country.
Miss 'Ihompson'M fa 1 1 11 ro to record hor Amor
loan experiences would bcem to glveforco to
"Tho present discussion nbout Sunday as n
dnyof entertainment," said an old Now Yorker,
"soems rather tnrdy In v low of tho fact that
Sunday has been for several years ono of tho
most actlvo days socially in tho whole week.
It Is practically tho ono day which Is devoted
by men to paying calls, and If the average man
attempted to visit on Hundny all tho women In
his aoqualutnnco who receive on that day, it
would havo to be much longer than It I. One
afternoon would never suftlco for tho numbor
of visits that might bo mnde. Tho only dlf
forenco I can notice now is that entertain
ments have btcomo n llttlo more intuitu lti
character. But for dinners, luncheons and
mtch private affairs, Hundny was always tlio
most popular day, chlelly from tho possibility
or getting then all tho men that mleht bo
wnuted. Tho concerts on Sunday afternoons
which havo called attention to Hundny as a
popular day for amusements are ceitainly dif
ferent in no respect from the popular Hundny
night concerts that draw frequently enormous
hotisos or Irom tho various sorles given on
Bitudny nrtornoons. It Is Indoed late In tho
day to call attention to New York's fondness
for entertniumonts on Sundays."
Mme. Melba will bo ono of the singers who
will this year help to emphasbo tho close re
lation between the affairs of Covent Garden
and thoso of tho Metropolitan. Sho has com
pleted arrangements to nppenr in London
during tho noxt season, and probably no de
v elopment of tho season will do more to delight
the heart cf I.ady do Grey, who feels that a
Covent Gatdon season Is not completo wltli
out Mme. Melba's presence. Mme. I'mmn
Kamos will nlso be heard there, although It Is
probable that sho may take a brief rost nnd
postpone bor nppearanco until three or four
weeks after tho season has opened. Tho bril
liant period of the Covent Garden sonson is In
1 entity conllned to two or three weekfl, and tho
rest of it is llkelv to drag along with no par
ticular excitement. Muurioo Urnu o.xpeots to
give another Wngner cjclus there and will
have the presence of rnot of his New York
singers to help him out In that undertaking,
which will doubtless form the most interesting
1 art o tho season. Loudon usually hoars tho
smgcrs alter thoy aro exhausted by tlio long
New York season, but thero Is no inju'tleu In
that, ns they recelvo there on nn nvornge about
halt tho amount paid at the Metropolitan,

great reputation abroad since his compara

has come to be about tho beat known of tho
Jtalinn tenor. excepting Jlaslni and Tamagno.

Tho statement that dyed hair has gone out
of fashion in New York scorns tute enough,
judging from tho appearance of the majority
of women. The bairdrossors say that tlio de
mand for hair dyes has diminished until that
branch of their business has practically come
to a standstill. But tho disuse of these artlelos
has not reached tho stngo which reports of the
deolino in the fashion might lead the unin
itiated to l.ollove. "Thoavetage person who
thinks a woman's hair is dyed." said a balt
drescr. "never has that suspicion unless the
woman's hair happen" to ho yellow. May li
win save that all light-haired women are not
blondes, nnd her own peroxide locks, bleached
until there Is no color of any kind loft in them,
nro proot enough of thN. The women who
die their hair brown or black to keep II from
turning gray are numerous enough, although
thoy never get the reputation which ponies so
promptly to tho woman who turns her hair
vellovv. Hhe is discovered on tlio (.pot and
nothing sho may do will ever conoenl hor de
vice Irom the public Tho dark-haired kind,
however, go unsuspected That has to bo
taken into eon-ldorntion when anybody at
tempt to say fiom tho nppearanco of a crowd
of women whether or not thero is a largo pro
lmrtion of them with colored locks. Those
who are noticed are all blondes, with tho ex
t'optlon of sevninl wjinen in Now York now
adays who dye tlielr lmlr purple That lln
vvn popular in Paris several years ngo. nnd it
survives horo in several cubes that invariably
attract attention But it is true as a rule that
the numbor ol women w'th dved hair is
smaller now than it was soveral yean ago."

Tho Bijou Is no more a tearful theatre than
ovor. Tho now fnrco played theio Inst night.
"Btown's in Town," wns Just ns funny ns
Mark Swan could mnko It. This is Mr.
Swan's llrst work for tho stage, and he has
dono It, llko tlio Westerner that ho Is, with
nl! his might nnd mnln. It does not follow
tint tho forco of his endeavor will swoop tills
public Into hllntlty But ho Is nldcd nnd
sustained by a literally powerful com
pany. A louder porformnnco cannot bo
henrd In Now York, save at tho Metro
politan Opera Houso, nor a moto nctlvo
ono nlnce tho Bnrnum A. Bnlloy show
sailed for l'ngland Tlio aetorB nnd nelressos
can havo no need ot further oleo-mnkliiir pro
cessos. nor of gyiunustlo exorcises, outsldo of
tholr woik In this play. There nro two ex
ceptions, however, to tho general rulo of
vociferous uttcraiico and nthlellc notion.
One of them Is Joslo Sadler, who. though
comely to look upon, enncls tho rolo of n
Girman woman with a flno effect of gro
teFquoty. Hor humor is so unfotced, and her
dialect so easily comic, that sho mny bo fairly
set down as n fomlnlno rival of Mr. Webor
and Mr. l'lelds In mlxednoss ot speech. Tho
other player who strikes out well without
Htross or strain Is Hollo Davis, n quadroon,
or perhaps octoroon, who sings negro
ballads of tho May Irwin kind In tlio
Mny Irwin mnnnor. Hor songs nro nono
too follcltous, being rehashes of worn-out sub
jects, such as tho Impecunious coon and tho
sassy wonch But sho gives unctuous expres
sion to somo of tho mannerisms nnd traits of
tho rnco which darkens her face. Miss Sadler
and Miss Davis woro sufficiently artistic to
please the nudlenco nnd most of tho npplauso
was given to them.
Tho whole plot ot " Brown's In Town" Is com
prised in tho troubled honeymoon of n sur
reptitiously wedded pair. Tlio husband nnd
wlfo go to a country cottago, which they hope
will bo n quiet retreat, but which is Intruded
upon by n variety of meddlesome persons. Tho
Bubtorfugcs of concealment turn Into embar
rasslnc predicaments. But few of them nio
amusing. At least they wero not to thoso who
wltnessod thorn lust night. Perhaps they
would nppenl raoro successfully to a Broadway
assemblage It thoy were presented quietly In
stead of being shrieked nnd shouted, rattled
nnd banged. Tho cast contained sttcli capablo
actors as P.dwnrd S. Abelos. James O. Barrows.
Anna Belmont nnd Knthryn Ostermnn, but
everything they did was vory much ovoidono.
Whoeiereontrolstheni needs to ho reminded
that tho Bijou Is n smnll theatre, nnd that 111

Ilenlly. it Is too restlul 11 place to tho eye to
put bo much turbulence into.
In tho short fnrco In which Kdward Harrignn
acted at Proctor's yesterday lie was n recently
bereaved Irishman of uncouth manners.
Ho had como to stay with his son
and dauglitcr-ln-lnw. who lived rattier
pretentiously. Thero was a prefneo Hint
was pathetic, beeauso of tlio son's displeasure
at his fat hut's mnnnois, and thu parent's
grief ovor bis boy's Innbility to overlook
surlnco faults. But with that disagree
ment mado up. tho rest was broadly
farcical. A plot there was to tho romaindor,
but it wasn't obtrusive, nnd thero wero
times when thoso who laughed heartily
would liavo beon put to it to tell just how
tho matter that amused them was joined
to tlio rost. Thoy haw Mr. Harrigan rigged
out with Itnmro's doublet, cap nnd sword, con
fronting ills son's wife, who poured lit him over
the top ot a fire screen. They heard him re
cite, in a rich Irish brogue, such of Shake
speare's lilies ns ho could remember,
and supply n comically garblod version,
when his memory failed him. They haw
him trot toward tho billinrd room in soareli of
tlio cuo hiscompanlon demanded, and heard n
moment later tlio racket raiacd by a rnttln
in token that ho had di-abled a com
plaining car. Thev wero told th'nt another
object of his marksmanship wns n bust of
Shnkcspeure. and heard him begin tho famous
npostrnpho to the head of tlio bunt nnd con
clude vvltli: "Willy. Willy, you left many an
actor in a strango town." Afterward lie
was Introduced to nnolhor character ns
Tragedian Barry Sullivan, nnd then ills
shilts to the dialogue of other plnys had In
thorn morn of reason, though not less of comi
cality There wero beveinl of them, tlio
bPloetions ludicrously mlsllttlng. nnd Iho
manner of declaration well hufted to the
plaver's character. A song, "My Little
Dudhecn." was for Mr Harrignn. nnd theio
wns emplovment for Davo Braham. Jr. nnd
throe others. The title "Larry Logan" was
taken from tho bhort play's chief character.
At Keith's Inst night Joaquin Miller was
n specialist with a mission. lb was not
there, ho said, to amuse, but to in
struct concerning tho groat frozen north.
His appearance nnd manner woro ns
strange at his Introduction. But that tho pro
grammes told what ho was to do, ho would
havo boon taken for a Santa Claus two montlis
belated. Thero weio fur, boots, coat and hat,
till picturesque as to trimmings, nnd 11 long
gray beard. Tho speaker's manner wns live
ly, bocnuso noaily nil ho said wns in his most
emphatic manner. Gestures and strides, ns
well ns tho tones of his voice, served to mark
tho passages that ho intended to impress, and
such wero all In which ho did not
bid for laughter Occasionally thoro was hesi
tation for a suitable word, nnd now and then
tiiero wero breaks of continuity, but on tho
whole the speech was attractively singular His
niivlco to would-be gold getteis wns not to go
to tho Klondike, though In the net breath
ho stated his bcliol that no man of pluck and
industry could go ami como out wltliout a
