COMING TO THE THEATERS.
Primrose and West, the famous minstrel
entertainers, have introduced a genuine
minstrel revolution tbls season. It has
been a constant endeavor on their part to
grow in favor with the public.
This season the climax was reached when
Prlmroso and West secured a combination
of whites and blacks to amalgamate their
talents so as to preaent the progress of
minstrelsy, from Its birth to the present
day, in such a shape as to provide two sep
arate anil distinct performances during the
This has been accompllied with results
that must be gratifying to Primrose and
West as it Is delightful to all lovers ot
wholesome minstrel entertainment. Every
artist of note was pressed Into service and
each one individually contributes a fair
portion toward tho end aimed at.
The entire performance la said to be a
highly interesting one, asidelrom the many
novel features Introduce!, and everywhere
heard from, the big show is attracting the
greatest possible amount ot consideration.
There are three raillrftry bands, one
pickannlny band of unusual merit. AH are
handsomely uniformed, and their advent is
always calculated to gladden the ears of all
lovers of music. It is confidently expected
that their engagement at the New National
Theater during the coming week will be a
banner one ot thla favorite organization.
Tho engagement of Peter F. Dailcy, 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 hag toured most success
fully as l. star ot "A Country Sport," and
this season, with a new comedy from the
pen of tho same author, John J. McNally,
his tour should be even more prosperous than
those that have gone before.
All reports regarding "The Night Clerk"
are commendable, and it seems a certainty
that Mr. McNally has fitted Mr. Dailey bet
ter than ever before. The piece iUelf Is said
to be immoderately funny. The equipment
that has been bestowed on "The Night
Clerk" Is unusually elaborate, and em
braces every scene of the three acts of the
play. Every movable article Is carried by
the company, and many novel electrical de
vices have been added to lend brilliancy to

There are, perhaps, no two words that
appeal more strongly to the patriotism of
the American people than the title chosen
by Messrs. Vincent and Brady for their
new play, "Old Glory.
While necessarily dealing with the history
of our navy, it Is not a war play, aa this
term is understood usually by the theater
going pnbhe. It awakens no sectional feel
ings; while full of action and sentiment It
resurrects no buried Issues. It is a story
ot our "Blue Jackets' In Chill, which will
appeal alike to every true American.
The stirring scenes that followed the
assassination ot poor Rlggln In the streets
of Valparaiso, the sensational plot en
gineered by the renegade American, Qlram
Lawton. to precipitate a war with the
United States, are thrlllingly depicted In
the development of a love-story of absorbing
From the opening ot the play In the
shipping office at New York and the
riotous Chilian rabble storming the doora
ot our consulate, and the perils of a mala
rial South American prison, the story
carries us along to the attempted wreck
ing of the Baltimore, the escape and final
capture of the Chilian privateer In a
hand-to hand encounter by a boarding
party of our "blue Jackets."
The comedy element of tho play Is well
sustained. The adventures of an enter
prising young American electrician and
his entanglements with the dark-eyed
senorltas are most amusingly set fnrth.
