New Yokk, August 10. Tho complete
paralysis of nil trnllieon thoNcw lork
Central caused by tho Knights of Lnlxr
inon when they struck their
first blow Friday night led them
to think they could effect a further stop-
page of business on tho roads of tho

in doing and it is cident that a general
feeling of disappointment pre nils unions:
tho strikers though they w ill not admit
this. They placed a strong reliance upon
tho assistance of tho Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers, who, it was ex
pected by many Knights, were to
havo taken a hand in the tight
last night, Holhnd himself told a
reporter there was an understanding to
this effect, but today lie said he hail
heard nothing further about tho matter
and could not tell wliat tho lirotner
hood would do.
A prominent member of tho Brother
hood said today that tho .locomotivo
engineers were riot to bo in this strike,
as it was not their tight. Of course, ho
added, should thoy be ordered out they
would go. Ho did not think such an
order would be given tho Brotherhood.
Paid several others wo remember the
C. II. and Q. strike, in which their
places were taken by tho Knights of
Labor and we are not over anxious to
help the Knights now.
Today regular passenger service on

As a result of tho conference held by
tho railroad officials, Third Vice-President
Webb lato this .afternoon issued a
circular giving tho company's position
on tho strike. In tho circular Webb
stated that tho company in selecting
their men do not propose that they shall
bo deslcnated by the Knights of Labor.
That when promotions are to bo mado
the company w ill not be bound by pre
scribed rules promulgated by tho
Knights of Labor. Duo consideration
will bo given to the length of sen-ice,
but the first and most important rule
will bo tho qualification of tho men for
the places. If the employes liavo
grievances tho proper officers w ill grant
a hearing and seo that consideration is
given, but they will not allow outsiders
to interfere betw een tho employer and
employe. For this reason Mr. Wobb
states he refused to allow Holland to
discuss any differences alleged to
exist between tho company and
its eniplojes and not for the
reason ns stated that tho company
objected to its employes being members
of laboi organizations.

Charges Gladstone With Refuting the
Acts of Ills Fast Lire.
London, August 10. Balfour in an
address at Manchester last night de
clared that Gladstone's insinuation that
the Government had sacrificed the
rights of the Protestant residents of
Malta in order to secure the favor of tho
Catholic minority was totally unfounded,
and a most bare-faced attack from one
who sent Errington to Rome in 1881
to enter into direct relations w itli the
Popo. It was, said Balfour, ono of the
many instances of Gladstone's perver
sity in attacking tho government
through his own reputation.
'Why," asked the speaker, "was
Gladstone determined to repudiate every
act of the first fifty years of his life and
to secure tho government, when they
followed his precedent of betraying the
interests of the country."

Tho Village Where the "Passion
Play" Is Presented.
IN THE BAVARIAN HIGHLANDS.
Characteristics of tho World - famous
Drama How the Situations Aro
Wrought Out for Presentation
on the Stage.
Tho fiist performance of the "Passion
Play" of 1800 took place on May 25, says
tho Philadelphia Timet. A short rail
way journoy from Munich to Oberau, fol
lowed by a carriage drive, brings the
traveller intu ono of tho most romantic
spots in the Bavarian highlands. The
village of Oberammergau nestles beneath
the Kofel, w Inch is surmounted by a cross
of iron sixty feet high. It contains about
1500 inhabitants, who support them
selves chiefly by wood carving, which
they cxecuto most beautifully. The
houses are picturesque, with chalet
roofs, ornamented fretwork balconies
and walls frescoed with Bibical subjects.
The theatre is a large temporary
building outside the village. The stage,
170x85 feet, is divided into live compart
ments the central one where the tab
leaux and principal scenes aro enacted:
on either side the house of Pilate and
Caiaphas, and beyond, right and left,
wide gateways leading into Jerusalem;
the wliole mise en scene backed by un
dulating hills, not unlike the Mount of
Olives, which give a strange sense of
reality to the performance from first to
A ORE IT CROWD.
On the day of the play it w as crowded,
and so many visitors were disappointed
of seats that the performance was re
peated. The audience numbered con
siderably over four thousand. A large
proportion of the occupants of the best
seats under cover wero English nnd
American, the latter predominating.
The events of the day commenced
with mass in the church at 3 o'clock in
the morning. All the actors attend
and partake of tho Holy Communion.
The stage is practically arranged as it
was ten years ago. It has a handsome
Grecian facade, with a drop scene
painted with figures of Moses "and the
Prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah. On
each side are archways, through which
aro seen streets in Jerusalem, and to
the right and left of these are the
houses with balconies, of Pilate and
Annas. The uncovered portion of the
theatre permits the eye to wander to
tho Bavarian hills on each side and be
yond tho stage, and the entire scene is
both unique and impressive.
THE "PASSION PLAY."
The play is practically in the same
form ns that of 1880. A chorus of twenty
guardian spirits dressed in tunics of
white, with ovcrmaiitles in different
colors, advance to the front of the
curtain of tho main stago from the
wings. At the commencement of each
act tho Choragus speaks an exhortation
and the chorus sing an explanation of
what is to follow. They move totho sides,
still singing, and the curtain rising
reveals a tableau taken from the New
Testament history. These tableaux are
intended to prepare the way for the
scenes in Christ's life which follow,
to illustrate them and to show in some
degree how prophecy was fulfilled. The
first tableau Bhowed Adam and Eve
expelled from Paradise; the seond
represented tho adoration of the cross ;
these w ere preparatory to Christ's entry
into Jerusalem. There were twenty
such scenes, so that tho mere mention of
them hero is impossible. A few were
exceedingly beautiful, the coloring ex
quisite and the grouping graceful, as.
for instance, those of the Israelites fed
bv manna and Moses and tho brazen
serpent. Others wero tiresome, especi
ally when connected, as they often were
with long and by no means harmonious
choruses. Botli orchestra and vocalists
are overworked, and they get terribly
out of tune.
The drama proper cov ers that period
in Christ's history from his entry into
Jerusalem to his death and resurrection.
Tho opening scene is one of the most
effective. Hundreds of figures waving
palm branches and singing "All Hail to
tho Son of David!" crowd the stage.
Joseph Mayer again represents Christ,
and enters seated upon nn ass sideways,
follow ed by tho Apostles. He drives the
money-lenders from the Temple. The
following acts represont tho incidents of
Christ's life in the order of the Gospel
storv. By noon they had reached the
Agony in the Garden of Gethsemane,
and, resuming after luncheon (for the
nctors do not proceed right through as
in the old days) at half past one, the
final scene is not reached until after C
THE OOSI'ELS ALTERED.
The gospels are followed for the main
incidents, but the dialogue is much
elaborated and so are several of the
characters, with tho view evidently to
give the play more action nnd more
realism. A definito plot is therefore
developed. In the second act tho high
priests take counsel with tho money
lenders and form n plnn for the destruc
tion of Jesus. They nccomplish their
end by the nid of Judas, w hose treach
ery is bought with their money.
Christ's death is therefore shown as
tho result of the working of
human passions, rather than as
the fulfillment of the Divine will.
With this end in view, the characters
of Caiapas and Judas are considerably
embellished. Tho former is seen as a
cruel member of a jealous priesthood,
and the latter as the type of a calculat
ing, worldly fellow, whose thought is
only for self. Both characters w ere well
played, and the scenes in which they
nppcared were the most spirited of all.
Strangely enough, Judas was most close
ly watched; somoof his situations are
made even comical and elicited laughter
from tho humbler portions of the audi
ence. The fine character of Pilate was
also fully displayed.
The scene when Judas takes the money
is one of the most highly dramatic jntho
Divine tragedy. Ho stands in the midst
of an assemblage of priests to receive
the price of blood and to fix tho day,
hour and sign of Christ's betrayal.
Tho thirty pieces of silver aro counted
out and Judas rings them on tho table to
seo if they nro good coin. The chorus
now reappears to sing a Iiomil v in verso :
Sinners, you shudder at the crime
Which Traitor Judas planned,
Hut mark his sin and think awhile
Where you may also stand:
Ah. while you blame the Jews of old,
Beware leit you the Christ have sold.
The interpretation of this character
by the Bavarian peasants is by no means
the usually accepted one. Judas is not
the mean, sordid wretch we have been
taught to believe, but has a naturally
fine, though impulsive disposition,
warped and ruined uy the cursed love of
His repentance is swift and his re
morse terrible as he rushes back into
the presence of the priests to fling down
tho bag of silver with great violence
before them, exclaiming:
Where can I go to hide my (earful shame?
How rid mvconfcclencoof Its dreadful eullt?
No forest fastness Is there deep enough!
No mountain cavem dark enough I Oh! earth
Ope wide thy Jaws and swallow me! I can
No longer here remain.
Ohl my dear Master,
lllin, best of all men, have I barely told,
Giving Htm up to treatment vile and rude,
Yea perhaps to martyrdom and death I,
Ohl were the Master here, Ohl could I we
His face oiico morel I'd cast me at His feet
And cling to Illra my only saving home.
The performance of Judas (personated
this year by Johann Zwinck) is so mar
vclously realistic that it is considered
desirable to select an actor renowned for
his piety and beloved by his neighbors,
otherwise he would be almost hooted
out of the village I His reputation is
second onlv to that of Joseph Mayer.
Joseph Mayer has played the Christus
during the last, three celebrations at
Oberammergau.' The majority of tho
audience find his personification disap
pointing. His face is less suited to the
character than are those of one or two
of his followers, and though his de
meanor is dignified and touching
throughout, in those Bcenes where the
Divine side of the character should be
displayed, and where the audience
should be impressed most, his
action inspires no inspiration. There
is only seen a weak, silent figure, dragged
about from tribunal to tribunal.scourged,
scoffed at, and finally crucified, these
acts failing to leave a tithe of the horror
and indignation the spectators are pre
The Bccncry and dresses are certainly
magnificent and are prepared under the
direction of the painters and customers
of the Vienna and Munich theatres.

Walnut Grove road to within twenty
miles of Prescott, there turning and
coming south by way of Date Creek and
Wickenburg, in all a distance of about
180 miles. The roads all through the
hills were almost valueless as such. A
full day was several times spent in
getting by some especially bad spot.
A better road into the Bradshaw
mountains is decidedly needed, both by
the mines of that range and in the
interests of the farmers and ranchers in
this valley. Mr. Marsh says that the
Castle Creek road is correctly located.but
in its present 'condition cannot be used
for freighting upon. An expenditure of
several thousand dollars, however,
would put it in excellent shape. The
road would be tho main artery of trade
for the mining region. Over it would
bo hauled every pound of the supplies
needed and tho mines would return the
rich freight of their ores for shipment
The distance by the new route would
be reduced to ninety miles and the
trip could be readily made in ten days.
The Crowned King mine offers to ship
at least 20,000 pounds of ore a day if
the freight can be reduced to one cent a
pound. There are dozens of other fine
claims that would add to the shipments
many tons a day.
This subject of a railroad into the Brad
shaws cannot bo pushed too urgently.
Such a thoroughfare would enhance tho
property of this valley to a degree not
understood by its inhabitants. Thou
sands of dollars a mouth would be spent
in this city by the Heights alone and to
this should by added the profits to be
derived from tho sale of the farming
products and the mercantile commodities
needed by the mines and miners. All
these would be directly drawn from

This is the last week of the Madison
Square Company, and performances arc
being given of tho plays which they
have presented during the first four
weeks of their engagement. In the
double bill, however, "One Touch of
Nature" has Leen substituted for "A
Man of tho World." J. B. Stoddard and
Maud Harrison have the principal parts.
I saw the piece in the East,
about six years ago with both Mr.
Stoddard and Miss Harrison in the came
parts as at present, and was curious to
see whether 1 should regard it the same
as it has been held in memory. I found
it as before, one of the finest bits of
work ever done on the stage. I think it
it is perhaps Stoddart's best part. He is
certainly wonderful in the role, and
Maud Harrison is charming. We shall
bid goodbye to the company with many
regrets. It has afforded us a treat
during its five weeks' stay and
every member of the company will
be held in pleasant memory (or a long
time to come.
Monday night tho people will crowd
the Baldwin to seethe most talked about
of all the child actresses. Elsie Lesliel in
Abby Sage Richardson's dramatization
of Mark Twain's "Prince and Pauper."
The play, handsomely mounted as it is,
and strongly cast, has made considerable
of a sensation in New York. The reports
of it's success as well as curiosity to see
the youthful star, will draw many
to the performances. Elsie Leslie
was tho original American "Little Lord
Fauntleroy." She first appeared in tho
little sketch. "Editha's Burglsr," from
which the play of "The Burglar" was.
afterwards elaborated, and her success
was the chief cause which led to the
dramatization of "Fauntleroy." Her
full name is Elsie Leslie Lyde, and she
is a grand-niece, or something of tho
sort, of Joseph Jefferson. She has
never played in California before,and af
terallthe numerous precocious juveniles
who have essayed the rOle of "Faunt
leroy," her appearance will be awaited
with considerable interest.
The Grieraers have met with a fair
degree of success with "Lights and
Shadows." Next week theywili present
a play entitled "Under a Yoke," by
Edwin E. Kidder, author of "A Poor
Relation," and a lot of other pieces. I
hope it w ill give them better opportu
nities than does "Lights and Shadows"
which to tell the truth is a play a little
below the Grismers' usual standard.
And this is the last week of the "City
Directory," and the houses are as largo
as during the opening w eek. Next w eek
W. J. Scanlan, famous for his "Peek-a-Boo"
song, will entertain the patrons of
the California, with his new play,
"Miles Aroon." The California seems
to play "winners" right along.
"The Vice Admiral" is being sung for
the last times at the Tivoli. Next week
they will give Offenbach's "Genevieve
This afternoon a rousing testi
monial was given J. N. Long, a
popular actor who has been confined
to his house for sev eral months and will
probably be unable to work for sev
eral more. The house was packed,
jammed. Popular actresses sold flowers
in the lobby, a New York fad by the
way, and the whole thing was a com
plete success. The entertainment pro
vided was worthy of the splendid
audience. Charlie Reod and Burt Hav
erly went back to burnt cork and
handled the bones and the tainbo in tho
minstrel first part, James E. Wilson,
late of "Held by the Enemy" and now
one of the leading men of the Alcazar
Company, being the interlocuter. The
Palmer Company gave "One Touch
of Nature." the Irwin Sisters sang;
Amelia Glover danced ; Maurice
Barrymore recited; Ignacio Marti
netti and William Collier bur
lesqued the "Gaiety" dance; Evan
Lew is and Tom Mclnerney wrestled ; and
others, too, contributed their shares, the
programme concluded with a burlesque
of the fourth act of "Camille." It was
irresistably funny and the audience went
vv ild. May Irw in w as " Camille." Did
you ever sec May Irwin? She is not
quite as broad as she is long, but "very
near it." You can imagine thepathos she
injected into her words when she announ
ced herself to be dying of consumption.
Charlie Reed was Armand. At last I
have seen Charlie Reed do something
funny. James J. Corbett, tho boxer,
was Do Varville. The contrast between
him and Reed, in the quarrel, was
ludicrous. The other characters were
taken by prominent stago people. This
burlesque was originally given at tho
"Five A's" benefit in New York. A hand
some sum w ill go to "Nick" Long as the
result of this little efiort on the part of
his brother and bister professionals, and
lie deserves it. Ho has always been
ready in responding to calls for similar
testimonials for the benefit of others,
and all vv ilt be glad for him.
Politics aro in the air now the ap
proaching State Republican Convention
is so close at hand. I hardly dare haz
ard a guess as to the outcoino of the
convention, everything seems so chaotic.
I have all along been of the opinion
that Markham would get tho nomina
tion for Governor, but he seems to bo
losing ground. I havo talked with
many, but the wisest are in doubt,
while all the shouters are certain of tho
success of their particular favorites. I'll
have to get some straws to find which
way tho wind blows.
