NEXT WEEK ATTHE THEATERS,
The engagement of Peter P. Dailey , in the
new farce comedy, "The Night Clerk,"
which will begin at the Academy Monday
night, will extend through the week. No
comedian is more welcome In this city than
Mr. Dailoy, and deservedly so. For the
past two years he has toured most success
fully as the star of "A Country Sport," and
this season, with a new comedy from the
pen of the came author, John J. McNally,
his tour should bo even more prosperous than
tboEc that have gone before.
All reports regarding "Tlie Night Clerk"
are commendable, and it seems a certainty
that Mr. McNally has fitted Mr. Dailey bet
ter than ever before. The piece itself Is said
to be immoderately funny. The equipment
that has been bestowed on "Tlie Night
Clerk" is unusually elaborate, and em
braces every scene of the three acta of the
play. Every movable article is carried by
the company, and many novel electrical de
vices have been added to lend brilliancy to
