embarrassments and Ingenuity of a run

knows how to act and sbo Is original and
Her support in chief is" Mr.- Frederick

Mr. Webbers facial expfession powers arc

made a good theatrical manager and Miss
Anita Verno, as the servant, was somewhat
grotesque, but Jt waB her way and It went
with the audience. Mr. Philip H. Byley
was clever as -the unsuccessful actcx.
There are some quilt taking and sprightly
songs and some good dasclng as a part of
the play raUier than as variety features.
The vocal selections in the third act
were particularly good.
The humor of "Our Flat" Is not strained,
and .the dialogue is clean. One of the
scenes, tbat in hlch the home made furni

body at least once a night tills week.
The. perennial "Black Crook" attracted
a large audience last night to Allen's Grand
Opera House. This spectacular romance
will be su re o f good houses during the week,
as it bas during Its run of balfla century

Tbc present management has made tbc
scenery as gorgeous and realistic as one
would expect to tec in the romantic regions
of the plot, but the specialties, perhaps,
give the go to tbc familiar tales and
marvels with which all, 'lUack Crooks''
The strength of the specialties is de
veloped in the third act. In which appear
the Mahr Bisters, Mamie Couwny, In
topical tongs; George D. Melville, comic
equilibrist; Mardo, the Juggler and marvel;
Ed. F. Coglcy, Gciman comedian; Palma
Puffengruntz,, Dume Barbara, ICexo and
Kcno, and a half hundred other gootl things.
The audience was immensely pleased witi
the performance and especially the ballets
and the Amazon march. Allen's Grand
0era House will be the'place to get off
the earth all this week.
Manager W.rtl. Easton, the new lessee
of the Bijou Theater, bas every reason to
feel highly gratified at The auspicious
opening of bis very cosy and attractive
playhouse Ian night. Notwithstanding
the counter-attractions at the several
other theaters, to say nuthing of the big
military parade, the house was packed to
which enthusiastically applauded the must
cal comedy burlesqueentitled"TbcKojnk,"
presented by the Noss Jollity Company.
The patrons of the house found many
changes for the better. The Interior has
undegonea thorough renovation, and in Us
light tints of pink and gray, whicb are the
predominating shades in the tasty decora
tion, and its new carpets and hangings,
It'ls Indeed a bijou Thelobjb was hand
somely decorated with palms and other
growing plants, and presented a quiet
though pleasant gre-etlng to the audience
as It entered the theater.
Just before the curtain ris rung up Man
ager Easton was called upon the stage,
attaches of the house, he was presented by
Mr. Plxley, manager of the cuinpauy, with
a magnificent floral horseshoe, standing
about three and une-balf feet high. The
incident was a great surprise to Mr. Easton
who, in accepting the token of good luck,
thanked his employes and expressed to the
audience Ills Intention of making Itie'liijou
truly "a family amusement place,' where
ladles and children may with safety at
tend without escorts."
The play was ubote the aerage 6f bur

excellent performers, who arc' especially
strong in their specialties Little Elsie
Lower was a prime favorite, and in her
dancing specialty made a decided hit, danc

here last year In the "Prodigal Father."
Charles Aldrlch as the tramp is one of
the best ever seen here In that character.

Mr. Andrew Mack presented bis Irish
play, "MIes Aroon" to agood bouse at
the Academy last night. Although thestory
is an old one with a villain who makes
the path of love a rough road to travel, the
lineB are good and full of Irish wit. Mr.
Mack is a clever and graceful actor and
sings several original compositions wltha
sweet voice, whicb is described best as a
boy alto. His high notes seem almost
impossible, but are pure and true.
In the last scene of the second act he and
Miss Coleman do a pleasing loe scene in
terspersed with song and dance and a
chorus of villagers, on which be received a
Miss Coleman, as the Irish colleen, and
Mies McMillan as Lady Glover, are both
graceful and effective, and Mr. W. T. Mason
as Pat Pbclan, is one of the best Irish
comedians that bas ever been seen here.
Little Miss Cubltt, a six year-old child, shows
a great deal of confidence and talent, and
the six Hibernians, presented by six small
New York boys, do a good Irish Jig.
Mr. Ogden StevenB, James Vincent and
Miss Sackctt acted their parts with artistic
finish and on the whole the play la a good
one, and one tbat every true Irishman would
Al. Reeves' show, which is at Kcraan's
Lyceum Theater this week, scored a big
hit at its first presentation last night.
Tbe make-up of the company is excellent
in all its details and kept; the taudlcnce in
a roar of laughter and applause.
Among tbe best specialties were: Unthan,
tbc armless wonder, and those masters of
acrobatics, tbe Great Judges The latter
were for soma time connected with the
Barnuni Jb Bailey's show, and come very
near being tbe best In the business.
The armless wonder lives up to his name
in every way. He nianaiXs to do with his
feet what other people do with their bands,
and docs it nearly as well. Among some
of his best acts are the pulling of a cork
from a bottle and shuffling a pack of

as were tbe Hiatts, whose performances in
a musical line were exceptionally good.

A Featherless Chicken.
Miss Lulu Teipel, daughter of Dr.
Charles H. Teipel, of Frederick avenue and
Bentalou street, bas quite a curiosity
In tbe shape of a three-months-old chicken
that as yet has not shown the least trace
of a feather. Another curious thing about:
tbe little fowl is that Its wings are Just re
versed. The chicken came from the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Anthony, Bcrrett,
Carroll county. It Is perfectly- healthy
and eats heartily enough. Because of its
condition the chicken fares better than
tbe other fowls about the place. Miss
Teipel bai made a pet of it and keeps it
locked In a cage during the night. A great
many chicken fanciers have seen the fowl,
but none of them appear to be able to ac
count for the fact of its never having had
any feathers. The only thing which the little
curiosity seems to mind is the hot sun,

Tho Impression is current in inside circles
about tbe District Building that there is a
crisis near at band lb tbe trolley trust
litigation. Tbe caseof The Times against
furnished the talk and speculation in court
circles, notwithstanding the .limping at
tempt of its newspaper enemies to minimize
the Importance and gravity of the situation
The rumor, which le? traced to the dellb
erate statement or a" high official, is that
the trolley poles oe New York avenue
will "come down" before a few days be
cause they will be taken down"vl etarmis"
by order of tbe Commissioners. In this
connection it is pleasing to note tbat every
time The Times takeaup tills question there
Is a sudden expression of. desire to do some
thing that ought tojhovc been done pre.

on the case of Tbe Times now in the police
court, and It is also confidently stated that
when n meeting of the full board can be had
Jiere will be no more trifling with trolley

It was even whispered ever so gently, but
audibly in the corrldorsof the circumlocution
office that Commissioner Truesdell thinks
that Commissioners Ross and Powell are
exceedingly obstinate in their opinions on
this rough shod drive of the trolley over
the District government. The situation
at the building appears to be that, only
Major Powell and Mr. Trueedeli being
present, there can-be no agreement on a
plan of action on the new phase of the ques
tion introduced by The Times.
"dr. Truerdcli's opinion is unequivocally
tbat he regards Judge Cole's side re-mark as

He said to The Times yesterday that in this
he only expressed bis own opinion. Major
Powell tald that the question of further ac

should be considered by the full board.
DRAMA OF CAPITAL LIFE.

New York, Sept. 10. The Washington
colony here turned out in full force last night
to see genuine Washington draoia al the
Standard Theater. It Is tallcd-"Capllol,"
nud Is the work of Augustas Thomas. The
opening scenes show a perfect reproduction
of the Capitol al night, with Senate and
House In session, and light In the dome
"The Capitol" is a story of a young Ne
braska Congressman, evidently drawn from
Representative W. J. Bryan's personality,
ft bo comes to Washington with an ambi
tious young wife. Tbe Congressman falls
Into tbc power of a lobbyist, who seeks to
estrange the wife's affections. The Ne
braskau ignores the lobbyist's persecution
of bis wife, fearing a political death if tbe
member of the "Third Home" is angered.
Dramatic-interest is lent to thesituation by
the presence of the young wife's parents,
from whom she has been tciarated since
Hcr father is living In Washington as a
Catholic- priest, and her mother, who eloped
with the smooth lobbyist years ago, is a
worker in an active charity, "bere is a
sensational dose to the third act, when

and Is well acted, but will hardly prove a

CAT SKINS IN COMMERCE.
Fifty Thousand Pelts of American
Household Pets Exported Yearly.
(From the Now l'ork Press.)
There are 50,000 skins. of house cats ex
ported from the United States every year,
despite the fact that tbe laws for the pr
ention of cruelty to animals allow neither
dogs nor cats to be killed except by legal
ized officers. These skins come from all
parts of the country, a wholesaler seldom
receiving a consignment of furs from a
country correspondent that It does not In
clude a number of catsklns. When the cor
respondentrecelres IS cents apiece for tbcm
on the aerage he will consider tbat he is
doing remarkably well. There is very little
demand for caukins in tills country, except
for cat-tall rues nn3 other oddities, some
times for trimmings and very rarely as a
chest covering In winter for an old man who
belongs to the customs of a past genera
tion. So the New York wholesaler sorts bis cat
sklns into lota of half a dozen different
grades and sends them to London to be sold
at the quarterly auctions of one of the great
fur houses. The skins or black cats bring
the most, and as many as 10,000 of them
have been disposed of In a lot at a sole in
London at 60 cents a piece. Yellow catsklns
arencxtln alue. Maltese and body mixed
colors bring the least, often going for 3 cents
apiece; or, rather, they bring tbe least of
the full grown cats, for there is a demand
at 3 and 4 cents apiece for the skins of little

BEGGED- TO HE EXCUSED.
And t he Old Man SMilled a Story Prom
ised by n. New York Drummer.
(From the Detroit Free Press.)
Six or eight of us bad lighted our cigars
In the smoking car when a man whom any
body would hae sized up as an Eastern
drummer began to cackle and chuckle and
"I think it was the funniest thing I ever
heard Id all my life ha, ha, ha!"
"Sir, are you a drummer!" inquired an
oldish man with reddish gray hair, who sat
in front of him.
"Drummer from New York?"
"And you want to tell us a funny story,
"I do. It's the funniest story I ever
heard related and too good to keep."
"Well, sir, l'ea word to say to you," con
tinued the old man. "Ilikefun.myself. Up
to a year ago I was always on the grin. If
anything tickled me I'd laugh till I felldo wn
from weakness. I once laughed thirteen
hours without a break at a story a drummer
told me. I brought on heart disease from
laughing and the doctors have warned me
to be iery careful. Thia story is mighty
funny, is it?"
"It Is, sir."
"Got a roaring old climax to itJ"
"Pretty certain to convulse tbc audience, I
"I'll warrant It to."
"Then please excuse me, and I'll go into
tbe next car for a few minutes. I'm certain
it's a funny story. I know you'll tell it in
sucii a way that I wilt have to bust right
out in spite of all I can do. It I bust I'm a
goner. I wanttohearthestorymightybad,
but I also want to live as long as I can.Just
He picked up bis grip and left the car,
and the drummer's smile fadeda way and he
pulled out a newspaper and began to read.
Somcho w be didn' t like to ask for the story,
and somehow he didn't seem to care about
telling It. By and by I went into the other
car and found the old man andasked:
"Were you really honest In what you said
about your heart
"Well, no," be replied.
"What was your object?"
"Simply to stop his yarn. I'm traveling
in tbe same line of goods for a Chicago
house, and 1 wanted to hurt his feelings as
much as I could."
