REALISTIC JE SCENE
Fanst Missed His Cue and
Stalled Marguerite's Brother.
MR. ROBERTS PLAYED FAUST
By nn Unfortunate Accident Mr.
Honertn, In l!i- Energ-y Thrust
His Sword's Point Into Hit,
F ellow-Actoi'b TUigh Injuries
Are Very Painful.
Mr. W. H. Stuart, -whose forcible aud
" flnlshetl impersonation of Valentine wis
one of the conspicuous features of last
-week's production of "Faust," at the La
ta jette, was stabbed in the thigh in the
duel scene, -which occurs near the end of
the fifth act, lost night.
For a time there -was more realism
thrown In the scene than the dramatic
requirements called for, und the audience
-was thrown into a state of feveribh excite
ment that Itself bordered on the dramatic
and which did not subside until the final
cene of the opera.
The incident occurred in the last part of
the fiftli act, when Valentine, enraged at
' the he,rayal of his sister, by Faust, rushes
'madly into a duel with him.
As Faust, Mr. Reginald Roberts, made a
final lunge with his &word at the excited
1 Valentine, Mr "V. U. Stuart, who rushed
toward linn, the blade reached too far, aud
pierced that gentleman's thigh to such a
flepth that it required the full strength
Df botn of Mr. Stuart's arms to extract it
- ironi the injured leg.
So quickly was it none that the audience
for a few moments sat breathless at the
light before them, but when Mr. Stuart
' nas noticed to move with difficulty, and
lite Mood could b- plainly seen as itrapidly
latuiatert the red silk tights of V.tleii
tine. tit incident took an alarming phase
and many gentlemen retired to the foyer
lo make inquiries legarding the extent of
(.-withstanding the pain which lie was
Sudergoiug Mr. Stuart pluckily remained
befmc the footlights until the close or the
leU and twice came before the curtain in
response to IIks enthusiastic encores.
Dr. A. R. Stand, of 1305 II streetnorth
Tvcst, was Immediately sent for, and upon
Hhairivi at the Opera House it was found
that the blade had been sent with such
force that it had penetrated the thigli to
B. deptl. or fully two inches,
II pionounced the injury a very painful
enc, but did not anticipate any serious
const queiu-es, other than a stiff member
tor sonic days.
After having his wounds dressed Mr.
Btnart was able to proceed to his hotel
-without difficulty, though the pain was at
times intense The accident was an un
fortunate one and It Is thought that Mr.
Btnart must have slipped on one of the
leel-plates setinthe stage, and upon which
the duplists stand in order to complete
the electi 1c current that produces the
flashes of fire that are thrown from tlio
words of the combatants during the duel.
Mr. Stuart's work was a conspicuous ele
ment in the success of the production last
. -week, and much regret was expressed by
many at the accident. It will not prevent
Ills appearance during the coming week.
Joseph. E. Ralph, of Illinois, was yes-J
trday promoted to fill the vacancy In
the Buieau of Printing and Engraving, 1
caused by the resignation of George W. J
Casscll, of Kentucky.

The comparative statement furnisUcd by
the Republican members of the Flnauce
Committee ycstciday shows, among other
things, the following:
Tbedut on tin plate in 1893, under the
McKinlev act, was $13,090,603; under the
Wilbon act, in 1S9G, $4,453,090; under the
House bill, estimated, $5,G6G,3G3; Senate
The duty in every case in comparing the
McKinley and AVilson acts is based upon
the importations for the full years of
1S93 in the one case and 189G in tho
other. Under a duty of 40 per cent and
1-10 of a cent a pound on beet sugar
(if export bounty Is paid) there was col
lected under the Wilson act, $5,798,-169.
The House bill, with 72 per cent, estimates
a revenue of $9,421,741, and with 75
per cent, in the Senate bill, $9,914,314.
Cane sugar was free under the McKinley
act The Wilson bill, at 40 per cent, col
lected $21,635,155. The House bill, at
72 per cent, estimates $38,943,2S0, and
the Senate bill, with a 75 per cent late,
estimates the receipts from this product
to be $40,563,917. If the sugar not above
No. 13 Dutch standard, imported from 'Jie
Hawaiian islands, is taxed, this amount
will be still further inn eased by $8,473,.
656. Under our treaty with Hawaii all
sugars above No. W are now taxed.
The House pioposcs to raise $8,382,646
from tobacco, manufactured, at$2 a pound,
und the Senate reduces this to $6,286,99 1
by cutting the duty to $1 50 a pound. Leaf
tobacco under the Wilson law brought
in $5,55 j,54S, at 35 cents a pound The
Hpufee increased this to $10,317,447, -with
a 65-cent rate, but the Senate restoies
the Wilson rate and revenue. The House,
with a rate of SO cents a pound on stemnvd
tobacco, figures on $836,609, but the
Senate reduces the rate to 50 cents and
the revenue to but $522,881. The nouse
rate on cigars would yield $2,501,450 and
the Senate rate $2,279,710.
In the woolen schedule raw wools of all
grades -were free uudei the Wilson bill. At
eleven cents a pound tbe House estimated
in firt-elas wools a levenuc of $12,92S,

tins Senate bill estimates $9,402,700. On

the Dinglcy bill estimates a revenue of
$1,272,981, but at nine cents the Senate
will reduce this to $95 1,738. The duty on
third-class -wools in the House bill, at 32

with a specific i at of four cents a pound,
as piovided In tlie Senate bill, this revenue
Is increased to $3,866,466.
The total revenue on woolen dress goods
in 1893, under a rate of 102.52 per cent,
amounted to $18,271,035; in 1896, under
a rate of 49.35 percent, to $9,620,516 The
House estimates a revenue of $19,494,268
on a basis of 1 00 per cent rate of revenue.
No figures are given for the Senate bill.
The statement Is absolutely silent with
respect to what is expected to be raised
from the tax on tea and the increase on
beer and tobacco This tea tax, however,
will yield about $10,000,000. The in
crease of 44-100 In the beer tax, based
upon last year's income, will aggregate
$14,581,000. The Increase in the tobacco
tax, if the output equals last year's, will

The Dual Athletic Games "With Penn
sylvania A Day of. Fast Knees
and Exciting Conte&tb.
Cambridge, Mass., May 8. The annual
dual athletic games between Harvard and
Pennsylvania here today resulted in a tie,
each team scoring fifty-six pointb. It was
a day of fast races and exciting con
tests, and the lesult was in doubt up to
the very end. With the early events de
cidedly fuvoring Harvard, Pennsylvania
forged to the front and until the end ap
peared tobeasuio winner. Itfinally cen
tered about the shot-putting contest. Har
vard led, 54 points to 50, but McUrack-n
was suro of first place in the shot and
Woodruff seemed a likely man for second,
after a put of forty feet.
It was here that Clarke, the Olympic
athlete, showed his prowess. Many per
sons had already lert the grounds when
Clarke, on nib very last trial, put the
shot forty reet four and a half inches,
thereby securing second place with ease,
and tielng the games. It was an exciting
The weather was all in favor of tlie
athletes, and the cinder path was in
splendid condition. The visitors only 6liut

Harvard scored six firsts, nine seconds,
and eight thirds, against Pennsylvania's
eight firsts, five seconds, and six thirds.
Horfniau, Pennsylvania's ciack sprinter,

lud expected, both his events, doing the

Keene'a smart three-year-old Voter, by
Frlar'b Balsam, out of imported Mavour
neen, wen, after a superb finish with
r,nnii l!. Kmltti's four-year-old, Tho
Winner Tlw three-year-old filly, Casspo
pi i. was tliird, with Hastings fourth.
In the absence of Requital, First Mate,
and Handspring, Hastings was a pro--nounceu
favorite, and tlie followers or the
Belmont coiois lost heavily on him, partic
ulaily as the regal two-year-old Fire Ann
had just won the Juvenile Stakes.
Voter was fortunate iu getting clear
of his field at the stare, and Lamley,
who had the mount, displayed rare judg
ment iu letting the big chestnut rate along
iustnad of pulling him about. The Winner
and Cnsrieopia had to thread their way
through the maze of horses, and Powers
made altogether too much use of the filly.
Sloan rode a most patient race on The
Winner, and fifty yards from the turn
he seemed to have the race, as Voier ws
in troobio. It was then that Jockey Lam
Icy proved that he is not a back-number
among Jockeys. Instead of rolling iu the
saddle or going to the whip, he rameu
the three-year-old in a masterly fashion,
encouraging him with heel and hand, and
squeezed home a winner by a foot in
far the most brilliant piece of horse
manship Lamley has shown in years, nml
the public gae him a rousing reception.
The Winner did nut snow as much game
uess as Voter when the real issue came,
but rating for position piobably took so
much out of him that he had nothing left
at the end when It was most wanted.
The same is true of Casseopia, whose rmm
through her field in the run up the back
stretch was little short of meteoiic. The
scarlet of the Monib stable Is couspicu
jus at any time, but they seemed to be
the only colors in motion, so rapidly did
they get to the fiont In the first thiee
furlongs. Taral, who lode Hastings, had
instructions to keep the faonte no more
than third all the way, and the Dutchman
found that his work was cut out for him,
so warm was the pace from the btait.
It was a breathless scurry, and the big
brown von of Spendthrift was pumped at
the end of seven furlongs His failure ro
vm was a suipnse to the knowing oneb,
who, flguiing him as something near first
class, thought that 124 rounds would not
stop him. But it did, and the Brooklyn
and Suburban handicaps give promise of
be.ug very open races in consequence.

The new millinery store
is adding further laurels to its crown as the season grows
older. No selling yet has equaled that done since its open
ing. Considering the competition its success is remark
able. But this new department was established to do re
markable things so you must expect them.
In launching out its managers have not been satisfied
with the standard that has been set and has raised it own
a plane above the others. To this is perhaps due its suc
cess coupled with its unmalchab'e values.
