"Uood wine needs no bush."' and th?
Silver King needs no cncomlnums on th?
evo of Its revival by the Giften Company
It is quite unnecessary to recount the
story of the play; for where could ?iny one
? he found who does not know it already,
For many year? the play has been one
of thej most widely known and most un.1
vorsally popular that the stage has ever
seen, and, like the hook, It promises' to go
on forever. It la twenty years or more
since tho play was first produced, and
It haa held Its own In public appreciation
ever since, notwithstanding the thou?
sands of plays that have been offered as
successors to lis public favor. There
are but three plays In the English lan?
guage ns well known as the Silver King,
viz., the Two Orphans, Camille and East
Lynn. These three have been produced
by the Glfftm Company In former seasons
with great success, and. the coming week
is to witness the completion of th? quar
lette. Manager Giffen hiiH been requested
times without number to revive?, this
clanDlc of human IntereBt, and its produc?
tion at this time may be taken as a per?
sonal answer to tho many personal and
written request?? that have been preferred
during this and other seasons. No great
effect is ever produced without a worthy
caune. and tho great popularity of tho
Sliver King must of necessity rest upon
some solid foundation. That foundation
Is Its wonderfully ptrnng human Interest,
The story of the regeneration of Wilfred
Denver is one that grips one's heart?
strings, and the manner of Its accom?
plishment rivet? one'? attention at tho
name tune- There Is hardly an Ebglish
EM-aklng country !n tho world In which
the Silver King is not a household word,
for It haa been played la Europe, Amer?
ica and tho antipodes by Wilson Barrett,
the English actor, for whom It was writ?
ten, and by innumerable other lights of
lesser dramatic lumlnence. It has had a
place In tho repertoire of almost even'
etock company ever organized, and from
11 business point of view haa krfown few,
If any. rivals in theatrical history. It
made a great fortune for Mr. Barrett,
and served to Introduce that dignified
actor to the United State?. One feature
which udded considerably to the famo
of the play was its great monil lesson.
"\'o sermon ever preached, no lecture
ever delivered, so graphically pictured
the remorse that comes from wrong-do?
ing, and although Wilfred Denver's crime
was imagined, not actual, the lesson
taught Is fully as strong, If not more so.
As a temperance lesson the .play Is bat?
ter than columns of appeal and statistics,
and in Nelly Denver h love and loyalty
to the hnsband who was for years under
i.uch a black mantle of suspicion, there
is much that could well be taken to
lieart in these days of divorce and mar?
ital laxity. It has been some time since
the Silver King was last presented In
Richmond, and It was greeted then, as
always, by an audience that more than
tested tho capacity of the theatre. It la
a play that theatre-goers do not tire of;
it can be 6eon figaln and again, and be?
sides after tho lapse of a few years many
now theatre-goers grown up, who, when
opportunity offers, like to see what their
lathers have teen, and in so far as tho
rSllver King Is concerned this will doubt?
less continue to be the cas? ns long as
the stase remains nn Institution.
The characters in the piny are probably
ns well known ns the play Itself, and
\ho personal Interest as regards the re?
vival by tho Giften Company will, pro?
bably center In their distribution among
?he various members of the company.
Wilfred Denver, the Silver' King, will bo
in tho keeping of George Howard, who
?Hepped into tho background last week,
while Mace Grc-enleaf plaved Davy
Crockett. In the latter rolo Mr. Grein
leaf proved how well th? Giften Company
is ?quipped in versatility, and In the Sti?
ver King Mr. Howard should do likewise.
It Is a most grateful rule, and will make
more demands upon Mr. Howard's art
than any role tie has thus far played. Mr.
Greenleaf will step from tho homely sim?
plicity and rugged honesty of Davy
i'rockett to tho craftiness nnd polished
villainy of Captain Skinner, or as he Is
always known, both In the play and out
of It, "the Spider." Jalkes, the faithful
sympathetic servant, will he portrayed
by Mr. Woodburn. and tho popularity he
has already gained by his good wvrk wltt
the company should be greatly added to
for Ja Ikes is not only a goo?I part, bul
one that from the very first enlists the
interest and sympathy of the audience
As Nelly Denver, the loyal and sympa?
thetic heroine,-Grayco Scott will return
to the cast after a three weeks' absence.
Miss Scott's appearance is always a. wel?
come event at tho Academy; in fact, the
i name of this gifted and charming little
! woman and that of the Glffen Company
are almost synonymous, and a. warm re?
ception will doubtless await her this
week. Tho remaining characters, ns
everybody knows, revolve around those
.already mentioned, and are of varying
degrees of importance. The complete
cast will Include Mr. Lane, Mr. James,
Mr. Kregerrels. Mr. Duar.i. Mr. Albert,
Mr. McGulre, ? Mr. Evans, Mies Wood.
Miss Tapley,' Miss Barron and G?or?
The extensive scenic equipment required
for the play will be provided as usual
by Charles E. Boss, nnd the expediency
which has been so favorably commented
upon this season will bo again in evi?
dence at the opening performance, which,
on account of the High School commence?
ment, will not be given until Tuesday
evening. The regular Wednesday ?ind
Saturday matinees will be given, with
performances every night except Mon?
The Bijou" Theatre will be crowded at
every one of the nine performances that
will be recorded there this week, for
the BIJou Musical Comedy Company will
be tho attraction, and Otis Harlan, Lit?
tle Chip, Mary Marble, Tony Hart, John
W. Dunne, and all the other favorites,
will assist in the entertaining. The com?
pany will produto "Tuxedo." a modern
musical comedy from the pen of a kins?
man of Miss Marble, and a delightful
sort of a thing that the company has
dressed up to suit Itself.
Thera Is a good deal of Interest among
Richmond tbeutre-goors In the movement
ami the past history of this company. It
is without doubt the most powerful at?
traction which has yet como to this
city, and has heen in constant attendance
en local patrons for tho past three sea?
sons, it is now en routo to Pleasure
Bay, N. J., where It will spend the sum?
mer weeks plnylng the successes of tin.
circuit and rehearsing the plays it is to
produce next season. It wuu thought that
the last had been seen of the favorites
when thev said farewell some ten weeks
ago, but it was arranged to postpone the
appearance of the company at Pleasure
Bav long enough for the organization to
visit Birmingham. Atlanta, Richmond and
Norrolk. .Last week they visited Atlanta,
and tais week they will he here, nnd then
on to shake hands with friends In the
City by the- Sea. Since leaving Richmond
tho company has been entertaining at
New Orleans and at Memphis,) where
new attendance records were established
In the theatres In which It appeared: and
it will establish a pace and an attendance
record at the Bijou that will stand by
Itself during the whole season.
There has bten but one change In the
make-up of the organization. Max Hoff?
man and Mrs. Hoffman left It ten weeks
ago, and the musical director was suc?
ceeded by George Nichols, who was to
have had that assignment for the com?
ing Ba?aaon, Nichols Is a gifted musician
and a composer of note, but In making
up his programme? ho selects from the
snelvea of otner composers tne sort of
numbers that the company can do so
well, adding compositions of his own.
He has arranged a musical and specialty
programme for tho week here that will
probably be voted the best effort of this
aggregation of musical Jilt-makers.
The assignment of parts was made by
Otl.s Harlan, the Btage manager, ?r.d as
usual he has made no mistake in the
matter In which be so thoroughly under?
stands, ror, according to tho critica of
New Orleans, Memphis, Birmingham and
Atlanta, the company has caught on to
something that suits them better than
anything they have attempted.
The underlying Idea of "Tuxedo" Is
original. It Is a story that -was written
by a relative of Miss Mary Marble, ior
George Thatcher, tho minstrel star, and
It was most successfully produced by
him. After a'run with "Tuxedo" it -was
retired, and the owner has refused a
number of flattering offers for Its use,
but it ?vitas only through the Influence
of Miss Marble that it was made possi?
ble to secure it for the Bijou Musical
I The story recites the troubles of a man
?who has organized a show for the pur?
pose of 'entertaining his neighbors in a
small town. Tnere Is much interest, and
many volunteers, and finally the Idea and
tho cast are agreed upon. Rehearsals are
started and trouble commences at tho
same time, and as me hour for the pre?
sentation of the performance Is at hand
there is the discovery that everything
Is wrong, and the whole business Is about
to go to pieces, when some one with a
great head remembers that Jake Wells'
Bijou Musical Comedy Company is in a
neighboring town, and its manager, John
W. Dunne. Is appealed to for help. The
manager lifts the committee out of tho
ciittlculty by promising to 1st the com?
pany come over and give the entertain?
ment, and It is a great success, for the
Bijou Musical Comedy Company Is noted
for Its ability to score successes.
Utis Harlan has one of those parts
that suits him best. It Is a brisk char?
acter, calling1 for lots of life and action,
and plenty of speed. Ho has received
some good notices, and he has scored very
heavily. Little Chip, the favorito -who
nas but to walk on the stage and hear
the people scream with delight, will have
a part different from those he usually
portrays, except that it Is comedy, but of
that quaint sort, and Mary Marble, Tony
Hart, John W. Dunne, David Andrada,
? Suzanne Hocomora, and all the others
? have opportunities to be heard. The mu?
sical maidens will have no time to peep
through the curtain-boles to see what's
doing out front, for they will bo as busy
as Busy can be making changes for
the twenty or more musical numbers that
will make up the musical offering.
In the, second act a minstrel first part
will be Introduced, with John W. Dunne
as the middle man, Otis Harlan, Dlule
Chip, Tony Hart and Dan Marble as the
end men. and the Bijou Quartette and
tile Musical Maidens as the chair holders.
All the male members will have oppor?
tunity for specialty work, and John Early,
David Andrada and Lynn Hall will ba
called on for solo contributions.
George Nichols Is the new musical di?
rector of the company, and he Is one of
the best In the country. He is a pro?
ducer as well as a composer, and It Is
raid that under his careful coaching tho
maidens have developed Into really bet?
ter entertainers than ever before. He
uses much of his own composition In mu?
sical numbers and In specialties,, hut he
calls on brother composers for contribu?
tions, and as he is of much influence In
that field, the company Is getting the
benefit of the work of several weil known
people In this line, and does not 'have to
depend upon the production of on? brain.
The effect will be noticeable.
' The visit of the company will be an
event of the season, and there Is every
assurance that the tneatre Is going to be
filled up at every one of the performances.
The seats are ono sale at the BIJou
"Tuxedo" will be given every night,

Great Demonstration Against
MAY OVERTHROW AUNISTRY
Mr. Balfour's Measure is Meeting With
Much Popular Opposilion, and a
Change In Cabinet Would Not
Be a Surprising Result.
Tho meeting held In Hyde Park against
the education bill pending In Parliament
was one of the most remarkable demon?
strations .ever witnessed, and was an evi?
dence of the feeling aroused among the
masses against Mr. Balfour's measure.
The lilll may result In the overthrow of
the present conservative ministry In Eng?
Tho following account of the meeting Is
taken from the Baptist Times and Free?
man of London.
For novices In the art of "demonstrat?
ing," Saturday was a promising beginning.
Everything favored success, a cloudless
sky, brilliant sunshine, a cool, fresh
breeze, the vivid green of the grass under?
foot and the delicate trace, y of tho open?
ing foliage against the blue sky, made tho
day a perfect one. Judging from my own
experience and from personal observation,
tho great majority of those who Joined In
tho processions had never been present at
anything of tho kind before, and that they
should have been willing to encounter tho
fatigue of walking to the park; and of
standing for tw-o hours In a densely-pack?
ed open-air meeting, shows how deeply In
earnest the Nonconformists of London aro
in their opposition to tho bill now before
Converging on tho park from all parts
of the metropolis, the processions, headed
by bands and gay with the banyers of tho
labor organizations, wound tholr way to
the apponted platforms. 1 Joined one of
tho smaller ones from a northwestern
suburb, and though I was much struck
by the character of the procession. I must
frankly confess that, until we reached tho
park, I had private suspicions that wo
need not havo Insisted so vehemently on
our right to twelve platforms. As to tho
earnestriossand enthusiasm of those com?
posing the demonstration thoro coulel be
no question. Tho two leading ministers
of the district, accompanied by most of
their deacons and many of their members,
were present. A local doctor, a member
of the 8oclety of Friends, organized the
procession, and helped, to carry the Freo
Church banner. Large numbers of ladles
and some of the older members followed
the procession In brakes .end carriages.
As we pursued our way smaller detach?
ments joined us at various points, until,
when we reached Paddlngton Green, wo
wero probably several hundred strong.
Here wo found a very lar/.o contingent
from Weslbourne Park and Paddlngton
awaiting our arrival, and, Joining our
forces, we proceeded along Harrow road
and Edgcwarc road to the Mnrble Arch,
now between 2,000 and 3,000 strono. Numer?
ous banners and flags announced the ob?
ject of our march. Dr. Falrbairn'?-^vords
furnished the motto for more than one,
w.hllo others displayed tho sound consti?
tutional maxim that, If wo pay, we must
also control. Public Interest In the pro?
cession was very keen. Trafilo was prac?
tically suspended, and the roads were
blocked for long distances with omni?
buses and vehicles of every description.
Lining the pavements all along the route
were thousands of spectators, while In
the park awaiting our arrival nnd watch?
ing our entry were tens of thousands of
people. Among those who thus witnessed
Dr. Clifford and his continent entering
the park at the Marble Arch was the King
himself, who drove through as the pro?
cessions were liethuiing to arrive.
On the other side of tho p-irk the
scone was still more striking. The main
procession was formed up on the embank?
ment-, and though It started at 4 o'clock,
the lasT stragglers only arrived In time
to vote for the resolution as the bugle
sounded at a quarter to seven. On tho
way to the park tho crowd enlivened Its
march by singing well-known hymns, of
which "Our God. our help In ages past."
and "Onward, Christian Soldiers." were
the favorites. Here, too. traffic was
greatly Interrupted, and at times com?
pletely suftpendoel. Curiously enough,
among those who were thus "held up"
was Dean Gregory, the sworn foe of tho
Board schools. As the never-ending
etream flowed through clubland It was
watched with mingled feelings. At the
Reform Club probably satisfaction was
the predominant feeling. At the Carlton i
and other aristocratic clubs contemptuous
unconcern was gradually swallowed up
In surprise, and finally In perplexity. It
really seemed as If tho Nonconformists
wore more numerous than was commonly
supposed In clubland, and, more surpris?
ing still, that they wore really In earn?
est. In the park estimates of the num?
bers present varied wildly. "Getting on
for a million," was a favorite guess. At
the gates the enumerators of the Dally
News took the census as the prooesslons
entered, and they computed that the at?
tendance was upwards of 140,000. Consid?
ering the difficulty of counting people
pouring Into the park In such crowds, on
foot and In vehicles of all descriptions,
this estimate probably falls short of the
actual fact. In any case thera can be no
question that It was the largest, the'most
orderly, tho most intelligent, and the
most Ctlmly in earnest demonstration
that has over taken place In London's
ROARS OF APPLAUSE.
Naturally the greatest audiences gath?
ered round the platforms at which Dr.
Clifford. Rev. F. B. Meyer, Dr. Macna
mara. and Rev. Silvester Horne presided,
Nothing was more noteworthy than tho
fooling of respect and loyalty which all
the meetings revealed towards Dr. Clif?
ford. He received a grand welcome as ho
appeared on the platform In a very sum?
mery light trray suit and wldo->brlmmi'd
straw hat. When the mooting closed, and
a vote of thnnks was proposed to him,
the crowd broke spontaneously Into "For
he's a Jolly good fellow," and thon by a
sudden Impulso passed Into a more seri?
ous strain, "Onward, Christian Soldiers,"
Every borne has a medicine chest or a few tried and trusted medicines which ?re kept ou hand for emergen?
cies. But no collection cf borne medicines is complete without Wine of Catdui,
Wine of Cardui is a home medicine which helps the girl through the trials of coming womanhood. This pure
Wine safely brings the wife through the trials of motherhood, and finally smooths the way of the middle-aged
woman through the critical period known as the change of life. There is no medicine so much needed in the home
as Wine of Cardui, because it quickly relieves the pains of the young girl, and completely cures the long-standing
troubles of the woman of any age. City men are down-town within easy call of doctor and drug store, but women,
who spend most of their time at home, can appreciate having a bottle of Wine of Cardui within reach continually.
A woman can never tell when headaches, bearing-down pains or painful irregularities will overtake her.
With a bottle of Wine of Cardui in ber home, any woman can privately and successfully treat herself for
Wine of Cardui is a popular medicine among millions of women for this very reason. It is popular because it
cures without a doctor's examination or a surgeon's operation. It relieves women of painful and irregular menstrua?
tion, bearing-down pains, distressing inflammations, weakened nerves and the agonies of ovarian troubles, It brings
children to barren homes and makes childbirth easy for suffering mothers.
Do you feel all worn out after a little exertion? Are y?u nervous and irritable? Are you sleepy in the day and
restless at night? If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, Wine of Cardui taken in the privacy of your
home would give you inestimable benefit,
Read what these home-loving women say about Wine of Cardui, and with their earnest words in mind go to
your druggist to-day and secure a bottle of Wine of Cardui,

After giving Wine of Cardui a week's trial, I feel a great deal better than I have felt in two years. I can
commend your Wins of Cardui to be the greatest medicine in the world? BESSIE WEST.

Having used three bottles of Wine of Cardui and one package of Tbedford's Black-Draught, I can truthfully
ssy that it has done me more good than all the doctors' medicine did. 1 doctored with a physician almost six
months, but did not get any better. I am seventeen year? of age. I would advise any suffering girl to try Wine

which quite drowned his reply. But It
was tho same everywhere. Whenever his
name was mentioned a roar of applause
followed. Just before the meeting com?
menced some of his friends who had
been busy with spirit lamp and kettle un?
der tho wag-on, handed up afternoon tea
to the doctor and his v.'ifo In very mis?
cellaneous looking cups and saucers, and
then ho bated his head and addressed
himself to the task before him amid en?
couraging shouts of "Now then, John!"
. It wns a real lighting speech. At the
liberation meeting ho said ho was reserv?
ing whatever capacity for Indignation he
possessed for the Hyde Park demonstra?
tion, and he poured out the vials of his
wrath with unstinting hand. Incidentally
ho showed us what ho himself Is doing
In this great fight. Since the previous
Sunday he said ho hnd addressed sevon
meetings In different parts of tho country.
With regard to tho bill Itseir, ho regarded
it as a menace to the children and to tho
teachers, and 113 a dastardly Insult to wo?
men. It was an attack on the rights of
conscience, and It destroyed an Institution
that had dono moro than any other during
tho hist thirty years in promoting tho
progress of education. It would bo better.
to pull down the House of Commons Itself
than to destroy tho School Board. This
was a measure promoted by a Cabinet
that was tho tool of convocation, and It
had only been pushed through the Houso
so far by bribing tho Irish members. As
Noncomformlsts they would never pay lor
tho process of proselytising children to
the Stato Chui-ch. For himself he would
rather suffer anything than do It. Lon?
don and the country as a wholo had been
suffering from a baptism of cowardice.
What was wanted everywhere Just now
was courage to say what they knew to
be right, and to stand to It. "Courage
was the beginning of victory."
COULD HEAR SPEECHES.
In my Inexp?rience I had Imagineel that
the demonstration would be nothing but
dumb show for all but a very small num?
ber round the platforms. I was surprised
to find that It wa3 possible generally to
hear the speeches without much effort.
Even the ladles were clea?y audible, and
some of the speakers had such powerful
voices that they addressed 'three meot
lnga at the same time, much to tho dis?
comfort of two of them. Everywhere tho
speeches wore clear and emphatic, and
every point was endorsed by enthusiastic
applause. Most of the speakers centered
their attention on the services of the Lon?
don School Board and the folly of destroy?
ing It in order to set up such a vicious
tangle of authorities as this oui proposed.
The Free Church representatives laid
great stress on tho Injustice of quartering
sectarian schools on the" public funds, but
beyond the emphatic assertion that tho
Noncomformlsts would not submit to this
Injustice llttlo reference was made to the
policy of passive resistance. Greater prom?
inence -was wisely given to those points
on which all organizations taking part In
the demonstration were ngreed.
The closing scene was such as I have
never witnessed before. When the bugle
abounded, and tho resolution was put
simultaneously at the twelve platforms, a
great wave of enthusiasm swept the park.
All that dense mass of humanity seemed
suddenly to lean Into life. A deafening
roar of cheering rent the sky. A forest
of hats waved in the air, and then from
widely separated points, came the full
throated sound of tho massed thousands
Joining In some grand hymn. For a fesv
moments tho crowds lingered to acclaim
same favorite, then the closely compact?
ed crowd seemed to tremble and dissolve,
and In a mighty flood poured out of tho
gates. The great demonstration was
over, but the memory Trill linger as an
Inspiration In tho days of ordeal that He
ahead, I left tho park feeling proud that
I was ?i Noiicomformlst, ami that I had
been permitted to join In such a grand
protest against a giant wrong.
The fight for tho schools degenerated
Into a scramble for a 'bus. A surging
mob swaved round tho station of tho
Twopenny Tube, and hope died within
my breast. J3vorv 'bus was llko n hive
of bees in swarming time. Afternoon
tea shops filled up, nnd closed their
doors like shops at clearance sales, where,
ladles flock to securo unhenrd-of-bar
galns. 1 resigned myHelf to destiny, nnd
set off to march back to my suburban
home without the inspiration of cheer?
ing croNvds. blaring bands, and flut?
tering flags, but with tho fire of enthu?
siasm still aglow within ray breast, and
ringing In my ears, yet that passionate
cry. "Courage Is tho beginning of vic?
