DOWN IN MEMPHIS.
Miss Claude Albright Winning Laur
els on The Stage.
The Citizen lia received a marked
copy of the Memphis, Tenn., Commercial-Appeal,
dated June 23. The ar
ticle penciled is a long write up of
r alha by the Lyceum OjH-ra company,
and the Citizen clips the following ex
tract relative to an Albuquerque young
lady who is a member of the company:
As Bolesias, the much-mustached
chief of the Tzlgang, black-browned
Leone was at his best, and his best
is very fine. His initial number was
one of the hits oi the performance and
worth going far to hear. It was full
of fire and abandon and voice. It Is
always a pleasure to listen to such
singing. Pity we can't have more of
its kind. Mr. Leone, or Signor Leone,
is a valuable memler of the company
at the Lyceum, In connection with his
performance, that of Claude Albright
should not le forgotten, nor will It be
forgotten by a good many. There are
as many more who think that the "b"
in her name should be dropped. As
the sister of Bolesias with the horrible
name which recalls Russian massacres
and the UK, Miss Albright bad a part
that Just suited her from the top of her
nalr to the bottom of her dainty feet,
which, by the way, know one or two
dancing steps. She has a, good voice
of considerable sweetness and power;
as has Wen Btated in the columns le
fore, and her future should le a bright
one. There Is a good deal In an artist
havflig a role BHited to her personality,
and there Is a mistake somewhere If
this was not the ease with the artist
last night. At times she looked very
tierce Indeed, and we were glad the
footlights separated up but there
were other times.

More About Case of Electric Ugh
Company Vs. Mining Company.
AN IMPORTANT SUIT.
The court on Saturday afternoon
concluded hearing evidence in the
matter of the claim of the General
Electric company against the Cochitl
Gold Mining company, for an amount
of money alleged to be due on the con
tiact of sale of the machinery. The
Cochitl company answered that the
electrical machinery was defective and
by reason of these defects the mining
company was damaged to a greater
extent than that alleged to be due on
the contract. The contract between
the companies provided for the sale of
a large amount of electrical niacbiney,
and to be in accordance with specifica
tions therein set out, and provided
that all negotiations prior thereto be
merged In the contract. The Installa
tion of the machinery was to be done
by the mining company, and Its ex
pert electrical engineer erected it. The
testimony showed that from the start
tiouble with th3 large mill motors de
veloped, as well as witli the hoisting
The mining company called experts
to show that these defects were due
to the fact that the machines were
Imperfect as received from the fac
tory, In New York, and that these im
perfections when the machines were
started caused still greater complica
tions in the electrical machinery, that
this defect was principally In the hear
ings of the machines, and that the
electrical company sent Its experts to
the mine, who corrected the defects
by making charges In the mechanical
construction of the machines. On the
other hand the electric company en
deavored to thow that by their ex
perts brought here from New York to
testify that '.he real cause of all their
troubles was a ue to unskilful assembl
ing of the electric motors, and that,
having been run In that condition, the
greater complications necessarily de
veloped. The electric company also claims
title to certain additional machinery
alleged to bo fold under the contract,
and a lien for the price, and the Co-
ihitl company claim that as to these
purchases, they were not made under
the contract at all, but were made In
such a way as to make the electric
company stand as to those purchases
In no different relation than a general
creditor of the defunct mining com
pany. The court et Monday. July 6th, as
the day for hearing arguments on the
Questions Involved. Mr. Clancy ap
peared for the Ir.tervenor and Mr. Chil
