"All the world's a stase," and last week
the drama was not enncted in the theater?,
but in the polling booths and round the
ballot box. There was an odd contrast,
on election night, between the half-empty
theaters, wi:h the actors reciting their
familiar lines, and the rush and excite
ment in the crowded streets outside. For
once, the plays seemed stereotyped, and
the actors' efforts mechanical and unieal.
I suppose it could scarcely have been
otherwise. Inside the theaters, the play
ers' paint was hud on with studied art,
their mimic joys and passions were
excellently well feigned, but outside the
excitement was real; the nation's puLse
was at fever heat, and, contrasted with the
men and women cheering the election
returns, the actors seemed "merely
■ But the fever heat is all over now. The

agers nre chortling in their glee, for peo

Their pockets full of money
And their hearts full of cheer.
(I dare not predict the original, which is:
"Their cellars full of beer.") People are
to have work and money, anyway, and
they will then be in a position to patronize
the drama right royally.
Loie Fuller is going to sail away after
her engagement here to dance before the
Viceroy nnd the most exclusive circles in
Chinese official life. Over there she will
not appear in theaters open to the vulgar
Chinese herd —on the contrary, 6he does
not expect to dance in anything so com
mon as a theater. La Loie will pass her
time "mid pleasures and palaces" of offi
cial life in the Flowery Kingdom, and her
dances will be executed in marble halls
before select circles of prinoes and man
darins. In Paris they idolized Miss Fui
ler, though the Parisians drew the line at
building temples and erecting statues in
her honor. At home she has been re
ceived kindly, but the commandment for
bidding idolatry has never been in the
least jeopardized by her presence. La
Loie may have her revenge for this cold
ness when sl.e reaches China, for rumor
says the wily Viceroy whispered in her
ear that in all probability she woula dance
herself into the ranks of the Celestial im-
mortals and get her image into all the
josshouses. If this be true what an alto
gether novel and fetching advertisement
it will make for La Loie's press agent to
write her up as a deified mortal, and tell
how punic is burning in her honor on a
Where is San Francisco? This is not a
conundrum. It is a bona fide question,
asKed in good faith and inspired by con
temporary musical news in Eastern
papers. If we accept as gospel what these
esteemed contemporaries say, San Fran
cisco mun certainly have been blotted out
of the map of the United States. Not one
shock, but a series of shocks has brought
me to this conviction. What we do is ig
nored, what we don't do is told in large
type; in fact it is plainly evident that
when Mr. Ananias and Miss Sapphira are
short of "copy" to eke out tneir musical
news, they let themselves loose on this de
voted City and its musicians, and the re-
Bolt would justify anyone in asking:
Where is San Francisco?
I read the other day, with a good deal
of interest, in the New York papers, how
Mrce, Belinfante, the blind contralto, ha I
just sung "for the first time in America"
at Chickering Hall. All the papers em
phasued "for the lirst time in America."
Ii it possible that when she warbled here
six months ago La Belinfante imagined
herself to be in a detached suburb of
Hongkong or in an outpost of the Mi
kado's dominions? Another piece of
news which has deeply interested me is
the high praise which the San Francisco
japers (accord ng to their Eastern con
temporaries) are lavishing upon Mrs.
Celia Fisher. It seems that Mrs. Fisher
has created quite a furor here. Far be it
from me to say that she has not done so.
I only deplore never having heard of the
lady, and hope for the future (if she is not
an invention of the Ananias reporter)
that she will cease hiding her light be
nea'.h a bushel. Good singers are rare,
and when found should be made a note of.
But the dastardly work of the Ananias
reporter was done when he ruthlessly
drowned our gifted Mrs. Marquardt. The
Musical Courier gave her a beautiful
obituary notice last month, but that was
sorry consolation for her death. It seems
that John Marquardt wastheonly passen
ger saved from the wreck of the Druni
roond Castle off the coast of France last
June, and that his wife perished. The
Courier is five month* lato in get
ting its news, but it compensates for
that by giving hariowing detail".
The distinguished violinist was on a pro
fessional tour round the world, accom
panied by his wife, Mme. Aleiandriua
Ureitschuck Marquardt, a harpist of great
eminence. There was a concert on board
one night and v.-hile the strains of the
music were still resounding the vessel
went on thu rock?. The shock was a slight
one and no one suspected that the Drum
mond Castle was in serious danger till
she began to sink. As the steamer was
coingdown Herr Marquardt seized hold
of a rail and sat asiride of it all night. At
first there were three other persona sitting
on the rail with him — the fourth officer
ana a male and a femaie passenger. During
the night, however, the others fell off and
were drowned, Herr Maiquardt being the
sole survivor. He was ultimately saved
by a fisherman, having been in the water
According to the Musical Courier this
news was not "made in America." It was
imported, doubtless at great expense, from
Australia. So little does the Musical
Courier know about San Francisco that it
published the tale of woe in bland uncon
sciousness that Mrs. Marquardt ha 3 been
appearing at largely attended semi-weekiy
concerts in San FrarjCisco for several
months. I hope that tlie protection Mc-
Kinley is soon to bestow upon us will in
clude a tariff upon the efflorescences of the
Ananias reporter's brain.
Francis Wilson, when he enters on the
stage ot the Knickerbocker Theater in the
first act of "Half a King," calls to the
donkey that draw|s his cart, "Whoa,
Bryan !" A day or two previous to the
election, just before his entrance, he was
discussing politics with a friend in his
dressing-room and McKinley's name was
mentionp'l frequently. His cue came, and
0:1 went Wilson in his cart. To the sur
prise ol every one on the stage he called
out to the quadruped actor, "Whoa, Mc-
Kinley!" It was a lapse of speech, and
the comedian was nonplused for a mo
ment. Then lie looked reproachfully at
the beast and added, "I've been calling
you Bryan for a month, and yet you
wouldn't mind. Now I've given you a
better name, perhaps you'll behave your
self and try to deserve it." The audience
greeted this impromptu speech with great
favor. "But," said Wilson afterward, "it
was a close call, and in this honest-money
city a hiss wojld not have surprised me.\

Before returning to Beskra, Ben Gand
wished to venture behind the scenes ol
the Grand Opera-house while the ballet
was in progress, as he thought it would be
a sort of dress rehearsal of the Paradise

the dancers were not slow to let him sec

me an albino."
Loie Fuller is going to carry 12 elec
tricians to China with her, to manipulate
ihe lights used in fcer dances. She will
also carry away masses of voluminous
draperies, and aruong them a pansy gown,
which like all others, is from her own de
sign. In an Enstern theater not long Rgo
she spread the pansy gown over two
thirds of her dressing-room and explained
its intricacies to Half a dozen women, who
pressed forward in admiring chorus.
"You are a genius, an artist," volun
teered an enthusiast.
"Notan artist." corrected Miss Fuller.
"I paid $300 for the pai'.sies in that gown,
and my .-ister, who lirst did the dance
with me, painted her own."
In his recently published "Musical
Reminiscences" Arditi tells a number of
good stories of musical celebrities, some of
them old, some published for the first
time. Of Christine Nilsson, he says that
when she wa< studying with him she was
so nervous that s>he frequently tore the
lace on her dress. Arditi knew many fa
mous composers, among them Rossini,
who when lime. Arditi was introduced to
him exclaimed gallantly: "Now I know
why Arditi composed 'The Kiss.' ' ' Once
when Arditi conducted Her Majesty's

Majesty's troupe. "
The St. Louis papers are circulating the
statement that. Lillian Russell is again
contemplating matrimony. Miss Russell
; den es the statement, and declares that
she is firmly wedded to her art.
It seems that Miss Russell remained in
St. Louis to t«ke a much-needed rest, and
there she happened to meet Walter Jones
of the "Gay New York Company," who is
her declared admirer. The two were seen
a good deal together, and the report went

Miss Selma Herman, the clever young
actress who plays the character of Ilda,
the daughter of an exile, in "Darkest

trolley-car while in Denver last week. As
she was crossing Sixteenth street, on her
way to the theater, she became confused
by the bustle and clanging oi gongs around
her and was struck by a car. The prompt
action of ihe motorman saved her. At the
risk of his life he leaned over the dash
board nnd caught her as she fell and
pulled her from under the wheels. The
young woman luckily escaped with only a
torn and soiled gown. Miss Herman
showed her gratitude by a liberal purse and
