original story lieing retained. This llicme
has lieen clalioratcd, new characters and

melodies, such as "Tie Law of Iiarataria,"
"Lazily, Drowsily," "I'oiiey. My Honey,"
"I'll Dance You a Dunce," etc, have al
ready attained widespread popularity.
Along the recognized lines of hurlesiiue Mr.
Palmer introduces a number of the best,
original, and eiuerlalnlngspeclaltyfent ores
and the production In every sense Is strictly
up to date.
Tlie plot of "Little Christopher" is not
sufficiently tetspllcntod to cause head
aches, but there is ciuvgli or a slory to give
point to the humor and reason to the brisk
action of the burlesque.
A company witlmut a superior In bur

"The Tzigane" Is said to be the most

Tlie play Is free from all the conventional

no war alarms, no Indians, no war corre

simply a perfect picture ot the social side

Daniel Froltman's Lyceum Theater Cimi
lkiny, which appears here commencing
Monday, at the New National Theater, is
the bet example now berore the nubile
or continuous work or talented players.
In close association for a number of years.
It has been admitted by managers that.
only in this manner can high excellence
be attained In the profession.
Yet, iu so few instances can this be made
financially profitable, that but few mana
gers have the hardihood to attempt to
achieve that result.
Mr. Frohman makes an annual trip"
abroad for vne purpose of view ing the field
there, and securing such plays as he feels
will suit his public; acd during tlie rest of-
the year, while his company Is playing at
its home iheatcr, a great portion of his
time isspcnl iulookingovcrthemnnuscrlpts
which are sent to him by American authors.
His desire has been to confine himself as
much as possible to American plays, but a
yet has found but few ihat would warrant
aim in their production. Tlie plays of"
fered upon this engagement are entirely
from English sources. This Is due, to some
extent, to the fact that there is a vast class
In England who arc cultured and have
great leisure at their disposal .andfor years
they have been growing Into literary work
untll they have at last distanced the French
and German schools, and the brightest
dramatic minds of to-day are found in
The first of the plays to be produced hero
will be "The Case ot Rebellious Susan,"
written by Henry Arthur Jones, who has
been before the public as a dramatist for
some years, but has been gradually in
creasing in popularity and in the refinement
of bis work. It is a comedy with almost
no serious story ,and Is intended simply to
illustrate, through the medium of "the
new woman," that it is better there should T
be mutual forbearance and consideration
between husband and wife and one shonU
not claim moreJudulgence than the either.
"The Case ot Kcbelltous Susan" is set
for each night untiTTiiurcday night, and for
the Saturday Aiitlucc, Thursday night
will be the oulyj revival of "An Ideal
Hueband,"und6n Friday night only timcof
'The Wife," and on Saturday evening will
lie preeenti-d "The Ciiarity Ball. There w'jli
be no Wednesday matinee.
"Shaft No. 2," a stirring melodrama
that lioa met with considerable.!! favor,
will .be seen at the Academy to-morrow
night. " TlicltoVy" deals with mining life."
and Is deseribcdias a cleverly, written tale,
of American life, "setoff with elaborate
l scenery'a'ndTulI of strange-effects, which
possess the undoubted merit r originality.
The hero, Jim Halliburn, Is an electrical
engineer. He Is working on a patent which
Ijjntendcd (q revolutionize certain mining
methods. and it is for tlie lieneflt'of his em
ployer. Samuel Kclrs.ni, who Is in financial
dltriculties. that his patent be completed In
as short a time as possible. The villain,
Hiram CI), has setoutdellberateiy to ruin
Edcson, and is nearly prepared to do so.
In the succeeding act Kelson accom
plishes his purpose, but at the cost of his
life. Itathburn falls asleep In his work
shop: Nelson, accompanied by Ihe arch
villaln. Ely, enters and chloroforms him
and then destroys his machine. In the
meantime, a terrible storm has broken
and. vivid, flashes of lightning, accompan
ied by terrible ihuuder, electrify the 'au;
dience. As Nelson Is about to emerge from
the worksliow he Is struck by a bolt or
lightning and falb'ilead iu the doorway.
Itathburn at that moment, awakens and is
discovered kneeling over the corpse. He
Is arrested, lried-and convicted "f murder,
and M-ntenccil to dratb. The next scene
shows ItaUiburn in his cell, awaiting the
hour lirexecutloii. He has a last parting
with his mother and sweetheart. The
governor. In the meantime. Is being Im
portuned for Kathburn's pardon, but feels
compelled to deny the request, which Is,
however, obtained at last through the
dying confe-wo of Ely. The pardon
reaches tlie prison not a minute bo soon.
This Is a powerful scene and is full of
pathos and Intensity, A short last .act
brings the play to a satisfactory concluj.
slon. Frank Losee plays the leading role,
Jim Itathburn. with a manly flgnr that
makes the part stand out promlnently.and
he is ably assisted by Marlon Elmore and
a strong company.

the building Is divided by two long corri

ing n rotunda which terminates in a dome
at tue tup of the building.
This dome nndjhe corridors are draped
and festooued with light green and cream
cheesecloth, with a liberal use of our
national flag and the signal flags of war
and naval vessels.
The several States are represented along
the corridors by elaborate festoons of the
national colors, held In place by the State's
coat of arms. Some objection was at
first ventured in using light green nnd
cream as the prevailing colors, but Mr.
Yeerholf found by long expenenew with
tlie combination of effects that the colors
used were less trying on the eye, nnd pro
duced a more agreeable background for

thoroughly commended by those In charge
