AS THE CROWDS COME OUT.
Tlierc Is much tn lie wished for In both
Im' dialogue and tlie action or "A World
of Trouble," the new farcical conictly, tlic
leading character of wlilcli Is taken by the
always popular Thomas Q. Seabrooke, but
the play is capable of being transformed
with little tronl'le into one r the best of
Us kind or this day.
The nwt admirable feature of the per
formance of lat evening at the elegant
I.arajette Square Theater was the accept
able mnaiirr in which nearly all the charac
ters were sustained. While Seabrooke Is
Ihe only Seabrooke, each of the other
characters demand a display of fine abili
ties, and It is a great compliment to
hcabrooke to say that lie mlfered little
from ui support. Fov, Ihe detistive, might
be somewhat Improved as a ItVynard, and
Ihe farce, as a play, might well dispense,
altogether with Mdllocfc'a ward, -M.inair,
wlili.li part was prettily played by Miss
llasl.im, but, taccti as a whole, the com
pany Is well balances! and tpiite satisfac
tory. As Middle-ton SimpUnsScalirooko scarcely
has oppurtiinity for the exhibition of his
vcrj- superior power as a comedian, but
lie made, a distinctive Individuality or the
droll part, giving It a depth ami vitality
by fine acting which the Hum scarcely
suggest. His performance is deiiclously en
joyable. Strong renilitloiis of their parts were
given by Miss rnget, wife or SimpUns;
.Miss Karlc, as the other wife; Mls I.over
ing, Mrs. Simpkins maid; and Mr. Oberle,
as man servant; and Messrs. Nolad, Fair
iliild, Herbert, Jackson, anil MiCormaek
nd Misses llaslam, and Lowrie sustained
their respective parts cve-cllcntlj-.
His Puritan Wife," with Miss Marie
Wainwrlght as Elsie Jlunlktr, was well re
ceived Inst night by a large audience at
Allen's (irand Opera House. The play In
itself is very simple, being the recital of a
husband's neglect until the wife Is driven
to sin. The usual reconciliation lakes
place at the critical lime.
.Miss Waiiiwrlghl performed her work in
a thorough and pleasing maimer, Ix-ing rc
eatedly applauded by way of approval
and encouragement. Joseph Zahncr as
the negligent husliand; Nathaniel Hart lug.
who leads astray the l'uritan wife, ami
Geoffrey Stein, an exponent of modern
chivalry, gave excellent Interpretations
of their parts.
The costumes vvorn bj' Miss Wainvvright
were of superior stjle and finish, as all
ttagc creations of that character must nec
essarily be, and were as usual of especial
Interest to tlie ladles.
During the wcck"AnI'nequnl Match" and
"The Love Chase" will be given, thus
giving the manj-friends of Miss Wain wright
an opportunity of seeing her under condi
tions whit li is cakuljicd to exhibit her
versatility as an artist.
The attraction at Ihe Academy of Music
this week Is the old standard melodrama,
"Two Orphans" prieiited as of yore by
Miss Kate Claxton and her company of play
ers. Although tho play Is such an old one
that nearly every theatergoer has witnessed
It at one time or another, the house was
very comfortably idled last night by an
audience whoo enthusiasm was frequently
Miss Claxlmi, who originated the part of
Louise, the blind girl, and has played It for
years, is perfect In the role, tier pallios
causlngdalnt nioucholrs to be used fre
quently by the weaker sex to stop a flow
The role of the other orphan, Ilcnriette,
Is very creditably assumed by Miss Hlanche
Weaver, and Miss Ltllie Ellle Eldridge
fives a very strong performance In the part
of Countess De LInieres, which was so suc
cessfully played last sea sou by Mine. Janau
chek. Nell Warner as Count De LInieres Is very
good, anil as Chevalier De Vaudrey, Revel
Germalno shows a great deal or dramatic
ability. In the second net Miss nrbiiSaiiford
rendered a couple of songs which were re
ceived with great applause. The others of
the company are very fair In their re
A gay, nautical opera Is "Nancy Lee,"
nhlch was presented to Washington for
the first time last night at the New National
It Is the work or Mr Fred Miller, and
is rich with the flavor of Ihe sea, the smell
or tarpaulins, the vernacular of "salt sea
dogs," Ihe glitter of brass buttons, and
the merry rompings or pretty maidens.
Two scenes of the opera are enacted
alioard the U. 8. S. Kankakee, and are
most picturesque In staging, Digby Bell,
as "Gabe Swirt," was mirth provoking
and original, Ills topical song, "What
Could the Poor Man Do," seeming to
especially please the audience, while his
burlfque or the modern society play. In
which his talented wife. Laura JojceBcll,
took part, vas uniquely successful.
Josephine Knapp, as Christine, sang ex
quisitely the many melodious numbers
of her part, nothing more artistic than
the "Jllrd Song" ever having been heard
here, retching, shapely Delia Stacey, In
dainty costumes of pink and blue and
scarlet smiled a welcome to Washinglon,
or which she Is u native, and looked de
Clara Jewel, as Nancy, was handsome
and winning, and David L Ihgoe, as Cnpt.
Edmund Lee, made an ideal sailor sweet
fcenrt. Gus Hill and his company or fun-makers
have returned to Washington and were
seen last night at Kernan's Lyceum Thea
ter by an audience that filled the house.
The show ill Is season Is better than ever
before, all the old favorites appearing
to better advantage than usual, and a num
ber or new novelties being introduced
Willi excellent erfect.
Fields and Pallid, the grotesqueduo, open
the performance with a very amusing
sketch, and Gus Hill, "the father of them
all," follows with his interesting and
exciting exhibition of club swinging.
Miss Bonnie Lottie, "Ihe little singing
and dancing suiiIk'uiii," gives tlicaudicncc
about twelve minutes or excellent amuse
ment. Lew Haw Uns, who is iierhaps bet
ter known in this city than any other
variety comedian in the country, is kept
as one or the last good things on the pro
gramme. Lew has always got something
new that is boundtomakeaii Instantaneous
lilt wherever he goes. Others in the show
are The Four Gardeners, musical artists;
Gray and Conway, refined comedy sketch;
Fred H. Leslie and his wonderful dog
circus; McCale and Daniels, Irish come
dians, and last but by no means least,
lllle. Eugenie, Pelrcscue. a contortionist,
who gives a performance which Is mar
velous. "The 20th Century Barber," an
amusing little sketch, concludes the show.

Words of the Vniiiou Divine.
Rev. T. De Witt Talmage, or the First
Tresbyterlan Church, has applied for mem
bership In the Columbia Athletic Club.
He was not acquainted there; he was not
solicited lo Join. A free American citizen,
feeling the need of a gvmnaluin, he in
quired for It and was told of the Columbia.
It Is five minutes' walk from his residence
at the Arlington, and probably the best
In Ihe city. It suited him.
He walked over to the building a few
days ago, found the secretary and had
his name posted. At the next Meeting of
I the board or governors he will be voted.
One black ball excludes, but there seems
I no pussble objection to so genial, eminent
j and athletic a man.
j Ills accession, on the other hand, will
j be of advantage to the club in many ways
and may be made to helji materially the'
' approaching lair lo raise money fur tlie
I support or the club.
l'resldent AIcxnnder'Grant, of the club,
was seen in regard to the matter at his
desk in the railway mall department at
the general postofflce.
I "1 understand Dr. Talmage has made
j application," he said, "but I'm afraid or
publicity in the matter. Mr jnii.in c-auuee-fute
had applied for mcmlerslilp. and was
down at the poms enjoying its privi
leges almost dally, when some newspaper
man who is a member wrote a story
SIR JULIAN WAS ANNOYED.
"He told how Kir Julian was stripped
to burf and knocking about with the boys
and that sort of thing. The old gentli
maii felt very much annoyed about It and
withdrew his application.
"Or t-oursc, regarding Dr. Talmage. I
can only speak Tor mjsclf. I think lie
will be a very acceptable member. He is
a well-built, large, healthy man, and s-ajs
he needs It."
Dr. Talmage was standing at the Arling
ton Hotel orfiee when a rejiorter called
this morning. His big form lowered aliove
most men alsjut him by a head, and that
head was one to attract attention any
where. Huge, rough realureil, Willi strength and
kindness speaking rrom every line ami
enthusiasm sparkling from the eyes, the
great divine Is more than approat liable;
he draws men lo him. His most notice
able artii Ies of dress were a large overcoat
and a not too shiny tall hat. He w.is about
going out, and was inquiring for an auc
tion on Massaehusutts avenue he had
tern advertised for today.
"Massachusetts street or avenue, do
you call II?"' he asked. Ho has recently
acquired the title to the elegant residence
of Mrs. Anna Cole, No. 17JI0 Massaehu
setts avenue, near Assistant Fecretary of
the Treasury Hamlin, but he said he had
made a contrail to live at Ihe Arlington
for a jcar. He exchanged Ids home in
Brooklyn for Mr. Cole's residence.
ALWAYS LIKED ATHLETICS.
"I like to own a place In tho city where
I live, whether I occupy it or not," he
In reply lo a question about Ihe athletic
club, lie said:
"I've always liked the gymnasium from
boyhood. It's the greatest thing ror health.
Physical lire is a luxury to me. I iu
lend to continue to enjoy it."
"What form of exercise do jou prefer?"
"Ituunlng. I think there is nothing like
It, and have always run every day when I
could get the opportunity without making
people think there was a rire or something.
It fills the lungs to the full, putting oxygen
Into every air space. Five minutes' run
Is worth more than an hour's walk. The
walk doesn't so stir and purify the blood.
Then jou can think very abstractedly whui
you walk; jou can't when jou run. I do
much of my thinking while walking. When
I run I forget everything else.
"Tlie gymnasium affords jou the advan
tages of a good course, and of knowing
Just how far you have run. A hair mile
is about the right distance."
"What other gymnastics do jou Indulge
"Dumb-liclls, Indian Clubs, rowing ma
chine, punching the bag evcrj thing, In
"You're not a follower of Sullivan?"
"Oh, no; I never hit anybody," was the
reply with a smile. "I exercise for my
health, not lo become an athlete."
"What do you think of wood-chopping?"
Tlie doctor's face lighted with ni'ino
rles of Gladstone and Haw.-irdcn.
RUNNING HEATS IT.
"Oil, that is good," he replied, "but not
so good as running. A good deal or the
exercise is in a comparatively stooping
posture, which is never to good as when
jou can stand erect.
"Mr. Gladstone told me all about Ins
wood chopping when I was there. He
told me very mirthfully the slory or our
big trees in California; how two men went
lo chopping on opposite sides or a tree",
and arter a wi-eK's work one of them
happened to w alk around to Ihe e.ther side
to lie surprised to find another chopper at
work on the same tree.
''Chopping is not good for a man w 1th
heart disease. As we were standing In
his wood Mr. Gladstone told me this and
pointing to a stump said, 'There Is whe-re
Lord 8o and go, a friend of fits. I forget
the name, 'fell dead Just after cutting
down the tree.'
"He takes a sort of personal Interest
in his trees, and has names for many of
them. He showed me a Bjcamorc. I bad

GEORGETOWN FIELD GAMES
Those Who Will Take Part
Them and Likely Winners.
TbeTrne-k Is in Fair Condition and
Many Close and Interesting Con-"
test Are Antlclpnted.
All Is In readiness for the field and track
meet to be held at Georgetown College
this afternoon. The track has been made a
little soggy by the recent damp weather,
but work Is belug doneon it that is expected
to put It In fair shape.
This event, postponed from last Satur
day, is to accustom tlie Georgetown men
to the work before themln the coming inter
collegiate events to take place on Satur
elay. It Is a sort of drill for that occasion,
and it may, incidentally, uncover talent
that has not yet deve-loped Itself that may
be used on Saturday by the Georgetown men
to good advantage.
Thero is a prospect that tho fourteen
events on the card will be hotly contested,
and that there will be a good crowd out lo
see them. The e-ntries are as follows:
100-vard dash J. Walsh, A. J. Devereux,
O.P. Johnson, Win. Fox, F.McAuerney, and
220-yard dash Dillon, and P. FI mlng.

W. F. 8. Doyle, and II. McLaughlin.
Sixteen-pound hammer T. Welch, W. T.
8. Doyle, and R. J. Harley-
The prospect that those who ccel to
daj will be likely candidates for honors on
Saturday has made all of the students am
bitious to do their best, ami predictions
as to results are Interesting. Of the six
entries for the 100-yard l.i-h Fot- and
Walsh seem to be favotcs, with tlie
chances in favor of Fox. In the 220-yard
dash Dillon and Fleming are considered
very evenly matched, ami no one wants to
make a guess as to which will win.
The 410-yard run Is expected to be a
splendid race. J. Wefers, the hrothcr of
the champion sprinter, and Holt arc t nought
to have the race in their keeping. Wefers
is said to be fast ami l have lots of en
durance, but Holt's admirers say he will
know be has bad a race if he wins.
Holt and Booglas are considered the
liest in the 880-j-ard run. Holt won this
race a year ago in 2:13, with Douglas a
i lose second, xiio track on that occasion
was very bad, which accounts for the time.
It is claimed that cither Douglas or Holt
can go the route In 2:05, or better, but
as to which will win to day is an cien
As against bis three competitors, Doug
las is thought to stand the best chance in
the mile event, while J. A. Devereux is
looked upon as having a sure thing on his
brother and the other entries for the
120-yard and 220-yard hurdle races.
The two-mile bicj cle race will be a dis
apjMlntment If it Is not hotly contested.
There are five entries. All are speedy and
gritty, and It is looked on as a banl thing
to guess off, though McLaughlin has many
The mile walk, it is thought, should fall
to Fleming, while In the high jump Dillon
is looked on with favor. It is predicted
that Fleming will carry off the honors In
the iwle vault, while Doyle is believed to
be about the best In the shot-putting and
The games will begin about 2 o'clock;
and the officers will be as follows:
Referee, J. M. Gallagher; judges, L.
Tracy, B. J. Wcrers, F. B. McDermott,
and Peter McLaughlin; timers, W. O.
Leary and James Wefers; starters, J. D.
Delancy; announcer. O. Harsey; clerk of
the course, J. P. O'Brien.
Another incentive to win to-day, and
one that promises a pleasant return, is
that the faculty of the college will give
the victors In the various events a turkey

visiting team it has been scttleil In a way
that will please every one. The Xchlgh

The notion of the new'Varslty team to
play the Athletic Club men for the honor
or meeting Lehigh has been abaudoned, and
a general effort will lie made to insure an
Interesting and successful contest. The

been doing good practice right along, liave

service for Ids fellows, but he Is not fast
on his feet and seemed to be a little bit
lacking in fearlessne-ss. Hut this being the
first line-up of the team, failings here and
there were excusable.
It is Ix'lleveel by those who saw yesjer
ilay'n game that the Shamrocks with a lit
tle more stndy and practice of tactics will
make a formidable one for any of the local
teams to go up against. The Roekcllle buys
looked somewhat lighter than the home
aggregation, but what they lacked in
jxiuuds they made up In othc directions.
They played a strong and heady game.
The Potomacs and Shamrocksare booked
to come together soon. The date f the
game has not Jet been set, but it will
probably lake place next week.

ilisappointed over their ih-re-at, look it

NOfES ABOUT BOXEltS.
An effort was made yesterday to rent
the Eureka Clubhouse for the Glynn-Baie-man
meeting, but as yet no definite ar
rangement has been made. It is said that
the present managers of the Eureka Club
are not inclined to liave much of a noise
made In their neighborhood just now.
Things down around Klchmond uon't look
promising, but in ijiiarters where huge
hunks of infonnation are supposesl te tie
lodgesl it is said thai as long as the
club runs its shows iu an orderly and rc-spi-ctable
way, and does not go beyond
limited round e-ontests, there will be Uf
interference with them.
There is a good ileal of e uriosity to
know wliat the new Vcndotne Club is, and
wtio its members and leading spirits are.
Some say It Is made up a coterie of
We-ll-known, well-tc-Jo, very respectable
gentlemen, whose only failing seems to
be their love for the manly art. Otlurs
say that Ihe club Is made up of a number
of sporting men who are here doing busi
ness at tlie race tracks. Whether sports
or legitimate businessmen, t he Vendome is
said to have plenty of money, and it ex
pects to have some interesting prHved
mgs follow the Batcman-Glynn affair.
As The Times stateil yesterday Hk-v were
likely to be, Billy Nalley and Jimmy Con
nors were inatcbed""yesterday to meet in
a curtain-raiser for the Glynn-Batcman
bout. While tills event may not lie as
scientific as the star attraction or the
evening. It is highly probable that It will
be ipnte as inti-rcsting and exciting while
It lasts. The Georgetown man will try to
even things up for the way Ihe cast-uider
"done" him last week.

low that it Is done with.
After all the talk aliout a fight U-tween
