SATUKDAY EVENING. JUNE 29, 1901.
BILLS OF THE WEEK
Trilby"— at the Metropolitan.
David H. Hunt's famous Pike theater
company •will begin its annual engage
ment in this city opening to-morrow
night at the Metropolitan in a magnifi
cently staged and beautifully costumed
production of "Trilby," the well known
and papular dramatization by Paul Pot
The personnel of the company remains
practically the same as it was last year,
this being especially true of the male por
tion of the cast in which all of the old
favorites will be found in their accustomed
line of parts. There have been additions
to the cast, however, and among the
newcomers wlli be found Charles D. Wal
dron and Thomas M. Reynolds two very
capable actors. Mr. Waldron during the
past two or three years has been playing
the leadlnfc Juvenile business with the
Murray Hill Theater Stock company in
New York, and since Joining the
Pike company at the commencement of the
Detroit season of the organisation has
4ona some splendid work. Mr. Reynolds
JOHN B. MAHER.
Favorite actor with the Pike Theater company, who plays Svengali in the production of
"Trilby" at the Metropolitan next week.
Is an actor of wide experience and versa
tility and has formerly played here in
various of the Frohman combinations and
also as the light comedian of the late
Margaret Mather's company. Mr. Douglas
and Mr. Mayall are so well known here
that anything- one could say of them
In the form of introduction would be su
perfluous. "Then there is clever John
Maher whose many brilliant performances
among which might be recalled Myles
O'Hara in "The Jilt." and Hosea Howe in
"A Peaceful Valley." Joseph B. Ever
ham, too good an actor to give a poor per
formance, and whose magnificent comedy
performances in nearly all of the Pike
company's productions made him one of
the most admired artists in that corps
of players during last season's engage
ment, and Fred J. Butler, s whose Hans
Otto in "Friends" and many other superb
"character" performances are recalled
with pleasure, help round out one of
the strongest male casts that has ever
been gathered. It would not do, however,
to forget Fred Wallace a Minneapolis
boy, who lias been with the Pike company
for several seasons, in fact, ever since
he commenced his stage career, with the
exception of a brief period in which he
was specially engaged to create a part

WHAT A JOKE IN A
The publisher of the Binghamton Chron
icle, a local weekly, wrote a personal early
In April to the effect that B. H. Wills ey,
one of the proprietors of the Hotel Ben
nett; B. C. Raitt and R. W. Meeker, of
this city, had gone on a pleasure trip to
the Bermudas. After he had written it he
wasn't satisfied with his production. The
men were particular friends of his and he
thought that lie ought to add something
to please them.
So it occurred to him to tack on the end
a few lines to the effect that the tourists
were going in the interests of a syndicate,
to be capitalized at one million dollars,
which was to build some large hotels in
tlie islands at a new resort to be founded
by them. He thought it would be taken as
a joke, and gave the personal to the local
oditor without any explanation. The edi

doubting its authenticity, decided it was

Consequently when the paper came out
the publisher was surprised to'see his lit

double leads in the most conspicuous place
that the make-up man could find.
The daily papers were unable to verify
the report, because the principals had.left
town., but they copied the article with a
few variations of their own. Then the
local correspondents of outside papers
began to send the report broadcast.
It met the eye of New York contractors
and provision men, who sent traveling
men to Binghamton to see what there was
in the big deal for them. It stirred up
capitalists and boomers, also, who either
came to this city or sent telegrams and
letters inquiring about the proposed re
sort. The crowd put up at Mr. Willsey's
hotel, which did an unprecedented busi

of the Fitch play Mr. Wallace rejoined
the Pike company and will be seen with
It in this city. Among the ladies the
name of Emelle Melville will be a familiar
one. Miss Melville is an actress of
great reputation and has played in this
city many times before. In addition to
having been the leading support to many
of the .world's greatest stars Miss Mel
ville was for a number of years at the
head of her own organization and in that
position made wonderfully successful
Angela McCaull, a daughter of the late
John A. McCaull, is also practically new
to the patrons of the Pike company. Miss
McCaull, however, did play here once
before, appearing in the role of Nanny
McNair in Mrs. Leslie Carter's produc
tion of "The Heart of Maryland." Rosalie
DeVaux, who has been for a number of
seasons in the company of Richard Mans
field, is also another newcomer whose
work has won for her no uncertain place.
Angela Dolores has played here before,
and has thoroughly proven herself an
actress of versatility and distinction. The
scenes introduced by Paul Potter in bis
celebrated play take us to the most
dramatic and interesting incidents in
"Trilby's" career. The play is in four
acts, the first and second of which take
I place in a studio in the Latin Quartier of
Paris. This studio is that of the "three
musketeers of the brush," Taffy, the
Laird and Little Billie. The third act
presents a magnificent scene, where
Trilby being released from the hypnotic
influence of Svengali, makes an utter
fiasco. The fourth act of the play takes
place in an apartment in the Hotel Bris
tol, Paris, to which Trilby has retired
after the "Ben Bolt" affair. The story
of "Trilby," it will be recalled, deals with
the love of Little Billie for Trilby, and
the interference of the progress of this
affair by Mrs. Bagot, Little Blllie's
mother, who is aided by the Reverend
Thomas Bagot, his uncle. After their suc
cessful interference, Trilby conies under,
the hypnotic influence of Svengali, and
under this influence becomes one of the
most noted singers in the world. There
will be matinees Wednesday and Satur
One of the prospective early produc
tions by the Pike company at the Metro

"The Banker's Daughter." This play was
recently revived oh an elaborate scale by
the Pike company during its Detroit en
gagement, and was a tremendous hit.
tirely unconscious of the hub-bub which
their supposed doings were raising ashore.
The next steamer to arrive after that on
which they sailed brought papers telling
all about the winter resort project and a
great deal more.
By this time the syndicate's capital was
?4,000,000. and it - was to construct in
Hamilton, in addition to the hotels, a
system of electric railroads and do many
other interesting and expensive things.
Such a buzz as went up in Hamilton when
the papers were received had never be
fore been heard in that city. The Blng
| hamton trio was quickly identified as the
j syndicate which was to do so much for
the Bermudas, and steps were taken to
The Board of Trade got up a banquet
for them, which was attended by all the
prominent men thereabouts. The speak
er of parliament,'the mayor of the tcwn
and the American consul were among
those who made speeches, and all were
loud in their praise of the American capi
talists who were going to do so much
for the island.
During the time the party stayed in
Hamilton carriages were provide*; to con
vey them about the island and point out
all the available sites for their enter
prise. The Binghamton men accepted
| these attentions in the same philosophic
spirit in which they had taken the ban
quet. They realized that things had gone
j too far for them to withdraw gracefully,
■ and being out for a good time, they were
I willing to take in most anything that
I came along. So they priced sites, smoked
j fat cigars and let the mistake pass.
To cap the climax, when the syndicate
came to leave the landlord of the hotel
where they had been staying at first ab
solutely refused to accept pay for their
board. This, however, was carrying mat
ters too far, and they prevailed upon him
to accept full rates.
WINTER LIFE AT NOME
How Residents of the Great Mining Camp "Kill
Time" While Shut Out From the Rest of the
World by Ice and Snow.
Nome, Alaska, May 30 —The steamer
Centennial, the last boat to leave, carried
the last mail to the outside. Just before
the close of navigation the leading mer
chants and business men, in tho absence
of any municipal government, reading
that there were many desperate characters
in the camp who were determined to re
main all winter, banded themselves to
gether as the Chamber of Commerce and
raised enough money to enable the United
States marshal to provide transportation
to the 'outside" for about thirty "toughs."
There were still left a few. One of these
was George Allen, a son of ex-Ser.aior
Allen of Washington; another was one
Hawkins, who claimed to be a prize fight
er; still another was an ex-convict, named
Doalen. These three were convicted in
the United Statea court of highway rob
bery and sentenced to fifteen years each
in the United States penitentiary at Mc-
Neill'B island. Others guilty of grand lar
ceny were sentenced to prison from three
to five years each, and will be sent out by
the first transport that arrives.
The First Election.
The first election for the incorporation
of the town occuried about Nov. 15, but
was poorly managed and incorporation
failed to carry, leaving the camp without
any means of police or fire protection, for
the care of the indigent sick or for the
protection of the general health of the
At this juncture the chamber of com-

The dogs are of the Halamoat breed, so
merce enrolled enough new members to
bring the number up to over 300 and pro

j the camp, electing three committees of
eighteen which, by general consent., were
invested with the government of the camp.
j Captain E. H. Hanson was elected presi
j dent of the chamber of commerce and
! acted as mayor, and the general commit
i tees were divided Into three committees,
! viz., committee on public hospitals and
j general sanatorium, a fire committee and
i a police committtee. Six police officers
j were commissioned as deputies by the
United States marshal, at a salary of $150
a month each. A volunteer flre depart
j ment was organized and an engineer en

vicinity were taken care of. This work

great pride was shown by the various com

A Second Election.
The second election for incorporation,
which was held April 15, was much better
managed, and Incorporation carried by a
good majority. The council organized and
elected J. F. Geise as mayor and appointed
a full set of city officials.
A $125,000 Fire.
The volunteer fire department had very
little to do until May 25, when a fire broke
out in a vacant room over a saloon on the
corner of Steadman avenue and Second
street, about 2 o'clock in the afternoon.
It destroyed about $125,000 worth of prop
erty. The fire came within a half block
of the courthouse, which for a time seemed
certain to go, all the employes being busy
removing the records, etc. The court
house was erected for the United States
court and cost about $10,000.
Those Who Suffered Loss.
The principal losers in the fire were
Messrs. Harris & Daggett, the owners of
the Golden Gate hotel; the Smilie Camp
bell Supply company; the Washington
Trading company; J. G. Jourden, saloon
keeper; the owners of The Court build-
Ing, which got its name from the fact
that Judge Noyes located in it when he
came to Nome last summer.
-Winter Rather Mild at Nome.
While the weather was very cold and
the fall of snow unusually heavy, Nome
was particularly fortunate the past win
ter, having only a few blizzards. At Sol
omon river, about forty miles down the
coast, the wind storms were very numer
ous and severe. Up the coast severe
weather was experienced also. The low
est temperature here was about 45 be
low, but the average was about 20. In
land, among the hills and mountains, the
weather was extreme, resulting in con
siderable loss or life.
Coal $76 Per Ton.
Supplies of nearly all kinds have sold
at ridiculously low prices for a mining
camp. An attempt was made to corner the
coal market, but it was a dismal failure.
While coal did for a short time reach
$75 a ton, It soon fell back to $40, where
It remained nearly all winter. Kerosene
for lighting was kept at $5 per case of ten
gallons. The Standard Oil company had
a plentiful supply up to about one month
ago, when it gave out. A great amount
of artificial light is not required, as Jt
never gets dark at this time of year, the
sun rising about 2 a. m. and setting about
9:30 p. m., a bright twilight prevailing
during the intervening time.
Winter Mining; Carried On.

teams, daily left for Teller, Gold Run,
Mary's Igloo, Bluestone, Kougrock, • Agia

sumptuous repast for their friends.

The amusements of the winter were va
rious an 4 included entertainments by a
gentlemen's olub, and balls and parties at
the Standard theater and the Golden Gate
Hotel and elsewhere. There were also oc
casional theatrical performances and prize
flg,hts. Nome is a "wide open" town with
no statute against pugilism. The majority
of the couneilmen very strongly favor a
good square fight.
Churches and School.
Nome has three churches, Congregation
al, Presbyterian and Episcopalian. People
here don't worry much about churches,
however, and Sunday is like other days
except for the increase In the number of
drunks seen on the streets. The public
school is a great success and is attended
by about thirty youngsters.
There are throe newspapers, the Gold
Digger, the Chronicle and the News. They
have been published during the winter tri
weekly, are fairly well patronized and sell
for 25 cents a copy. Ice skating on Snake
river during the fine days of winter was
quite a fad. Fiahing for the toothsome Tom
Cod through the ice of Bering sea was
also popular. Three books tied together
and a piece of red rag fastened to the line
Just above the hooks for bait make up
one's outfit. The fish take kindly to this
kind of a decoy, and when they are pulled
out the fishermen tap them on the back
of the neck with a small stick kept for
that purpose. On being hit the fish open
thek- mouths and let the hook drop. I
pulled out thirty-six in ten or twelve min
utes. I have seen ast many as eight large
sacks full caught by two men in six hours.
New Bridge Over Snake River.
We have a new suspension bridge across
Snake river, crossing over to the sand
pit which forms the first ward of the city.
Toll is charged as follows: Foot pas
sengers, 5 cents each; single teams, 25
cents; double teams, 50 cents. Another
suspension bridge across Nome river,
which is about 31^ miles east of Nome.
The government built this bridge.
Nearly every business house on Front
street for several blocks has put in a new
front and is now waiting the arrival of
the "cheechako" (tender foot).
One of the wonderful sights of the un
initiated "cheechako" is the swell saloon,
gambling-houses and dance hall combina
tions of which there are several. In these
one can play any of the popular gambling
games or amuse himself pretty much as he
sees fit. There are no limitations.
Lot Jumping: Is Common.
The townslte of Nome never having
been patented, lot jumping has been very
common. A recent decision by Judge
Noyes to the effect that actual possession
was the only title in law, encouraged the
practice, apparently. But some of the
jumpers were run off by gun fighters, em
ployed by the original stakers or pur
chasers. One amusing and almost serious
incident was an attempt made to jump a
lot on Front street, claimed by "Arizona
Brown." Brown was a deputy marshal
In the camp a year ago last winter, and
has quite a reputation as a fighting man.
One Keeling and a companion pupt a tent
on the lot and declared they would hold
it against all comers. Brown heard of the
affair and, arming himself with a pair of
45-caliber revolvers, proceeded to regain
possession. Keeling, when he saw Brown
coming, sent for his shotgun, but when it
was brought him he decided that discre
tion was the better part of valor and took
to his heels. His tent and outfit were
thrown into the street amid the applause
of a crowd which had assembled to see

A Steamer Sighted.
Nomites had another fine treat in store
for them on the evening of May 24, about
9 o'clock, when the town was startled with
the report that a steamer had been sighted
by some one from the top of the Alaska
Exploration building. This proved to be
true. In a few minutes every building of
any heighth in town was occupied with
groups of people with field glasses trying
to make out what boat it was. It finally
proved to be the steamer Jeanie, Captain
Mason in command, owned by the Pacific
Steam Whaling company, from Seattle
April 29. The Jeanie dropped anchor in
the roadstead at 11 o'clock. The ice still
