of the Jllgbt-Uho Were There.
It would hardly bo believed that there wcro
as many pcoplo In Washington as there teemed
to bo In tho aliout tho new Albaugh Opera
homo at 8 o'clock last evening. Tho eldo
walks leading toward tho building from every
direction woro thronged, and ft lino of car
riages reaching well up Firtccnth street wcro
Vattlng to deliver tho elegantly-dressed occu
nants on tho broad etono walk leading up to
tho cntranco of tho rather gloomy-looking
building. Four glowing electric burners,
uspended from temporary hangings, shod
n Hood ot light on tho brilliant throng
of opera goers, and tho less brilliant,
but nono tho less Interested, crowd of
sightseers, which covered every available spot
on and around tho heaps of building material
which had not yot been. cleared away. Two
(lies of policemen kept this outildoaudlcnco
tn order and out of tho way of the carriages
nnd tho ticket holders, so that whllo the num
tier was large, no ouo experienced any Incon
venience. ... ,
Insldo tho building workmen bad been busy
all day putting thu finishing touches on tho
decorations, arranging tho properties, and put-
line luings Hi urucr jur iiieuucuuiK i-viiv,m-
anco. They had tlmo enough for this,
his. With their assistance, their kind
wishes nnd their pntronngo, all of which ho
oxpected, ho should keep thutlproralso. Then
Mr. Albaugh took a big basket of flowers,
Which mi uatifir hnmlrfiil him. and uracOfUllV
backed through tho curtain In tho midst of
Immediately tho call was for Mr. Gray, tho
architect. Ho appeared, led by Col. Corkhlll.
Mr. Uray mado no spccchi Col, Corkhlll mado
it for him. Ho Introduced Mr. Gray, and said
thftt fin wnm n tmnll Tnnti hilt hn llAll bllllt B.
bli theater. Mr. Gray ami Col. Corkhlll re
ceived tremendous applauso and sevoral
baskets of flowers.
Thero wcro loud cries for Col. Moore, but as
that gentleman was at tho moment out on
rcnusyivnuia avenue, tuu nmueueu vni.n
down without seeing him nnd listened to tho
last act of tho opera.
An interesting iocs in connection who tuu
auspicious opening performance, and a valua
ble ono, as well, for Washington pcoplo tore
member, Is that tho vast audlenco of last even
lng left tho houso without rush, crowd, hurry,
or inconvenience in exactly six minutes after
tho curtain wont down. J .very precaution lias
been takcu to guard against lire, and It Is not
probablo that this excellent houso of
amusement win ever uuru uumi,
but It Is still posslblo that somo crank, of
which wo havo mora than our share In tho
rapltal city, will somo timo ralso tho cry of
nro atiu try lu siais u tiuiii. n nuvu nu uei;u
slon should occur pcoplo will havo only to re
member that they will bo In no danger, ox-,
ecpt Irom thorn-elves. No tiro could bo started
that would harm any ono In six minutes, and
in that tlmo they can all escape with caso and
Just before tho performance began last even
ing many pooplo noticed with no Ilttlo uneasi
ness that tho heavy frln .a of thu curtain bung
very near tho footlights, and that draughts
from tho direction of the stago frequently
swung It almost Into tbo flaming row of gas
Jets. Haifa dozen members of tho orchestra
tiono to spare, tho heavy bluo and gold
curtain having boon hung In ploco at7rJ0
o'clock, only ten minutes before tbo
doors wero open. Ten minutes later, how
ever, Mr. Nick Lorcnss, tho stage machinist,
and his numerous assistants bad disappeared,
and Miss ICmma Abliottnnd her company had
taken possession. Mr. Albaugh, in lull dress,
vt as w altlug to receive his guests, and bid them
wclcomo to as tlno an oiiera bouso as any
manager can boast or need tare to control.
Ouisldontthaboxollico Mr. Harry Flsk had
been busy for somo tlmo with tickets and scat
checks. An old and familiar figure to Wash
ington theater goers, Mr. J. E. Buckingham,
stood at tho door, and at precisely 7:30 Mr.
Jack Blvlus, tho business agent, ordered It
open, and tho splendid uudlcnco began
to file In. For nearly an hour they
nmn u-tthmtt fntnrrnhtlnn. and although
llarrv Randall's well-organized corps of
ushers, in full dross, seated pcoplo as last ns
they came, tho houso seemed to till very
slowly. Tho brood aisles wcro not blocked for
rt moment, and yet thero was not a moment
that tho ushers were not kept busy. 1'eoplo
eamo in couples, In threes, and by half
dozens, and thoso who came first entertained
themselves right handsomely by studying tho
architecture, admiring tho decorations, and
Interior arrangements, or scanning tho elegant
satin souvenir programmes provided for tho
occasion. , ....
It was twenty minutes past 8 before there
began to bo any apparent cessation of tho In-pouroftlckot-boldcrs.
Then Walter Williams
turned on tho gas, which had up tu this tlmo
burned but dimly, full head, and tho opera
tion was greeted with tho first bit of applauso
bestowed on any performance of tho evening.
Everybody expected tho curtain to rlso at onco
and was ready for It, but thero was another
Wfllt nf ft fmv minutes before Mr. Ed Hay
Hepped before tho curtain, nnd, with a brief
imruuuctury rcmura, to auvisu ywyiu wmi,
they wcro to cxjiect, read from memory tho
following dedicatory address by John V. Hood,
esq., of Baltimore :
What shall I soy to all this Ust'ning throng
Who como to-night to cheer their hearts with
To listen to tho notes that rlso and fall,
Throughout this spacious and majestic, hall.
And for tho moment baulsh from their broast
All thoughts navo thoso that givo tho spirit
Kudo In my speech am I; tho actors gift
I havo not, nor tho wondrous power to lilt
Tbo soul from earth, nnd movo tho people's
To nobla thoughts by his dollghtful art;
Yet here surrounded by so tnituy friends,
The welcome that their presence, now extends,
Bo glows with warmth, of what avail his
Ills speech would fait In such a happy hour,
Long tlmo ago, when Grccco was young and
Ills art, so beautiful, so rick and rare
Was gently reared, nnd men from all tho etnto
Toured eagerly through Athens) sculptured
And in somo lofty building felt tho thrall
Of gorgeous Tragedy In sceptcrcd pall.
Tho halo of her splendor huug around,
Each heart a lesson In her teachings found;
Tho theater a temple thus became,
It brought tho actor and the poet famo,
ll sootnea tno suarp asperities oi mu,
It w hlspcrod peace. It banished care and strlfo;
Art, politics, and commcrco felt its balm,
'Twos botli a benediction and a psalm,
Tho gods camo down to walk, and talk with
An Eden blossomed on tho earth again I
And has tho drama changed, Is It not given
To ralso us still it little nearer Heaven
To walk w ith llosallud through Ardcn wood,
Fit besido Hamlet In hlsdreauiy mood,
Wander with Lear throughout tho stormy
Join mischief loving Tuck In rcrlal flight.
Weep w 1th Ophelia, mourn o'er Juliet s tats,
Study all depths of passion and of hate,
And seo tho workings of each heart laid baro,
Catch glimpses of the beautiful, tho fair,
And at n wizard's touch, behold unfurlod,
Tho glories ot a now, au Ideal world.
Ah f yes, you say, that tlmo Is past andgono,
Tho light that onco upon tho drama shono
Has faded ; business, commerce, trade,
Have put such dreamy notions in tho shade,
iuo times are not now us tuuy useu tu ou,
Small room is thero for human sympathy.
Tho worker, not tho poet or tho sagu
Holds sway in this materlultstlc age.
Not so, dear friends, tho busiest 'mongst us
There Is n tlmo for leisure and repose,
Tu tread a measure and to past a jest,
To lift tho shadows Horn somo weary breast,
To let tho world uag und hie us where
Wo for tho uouce forget our toll and caro.
'Neath yonder dome that towers In stately
A nntion's.laws are framed, and far andwldo
Thu story ol our greatness and our lame
Is proudly told, and stirs Iho world's acclaim.
On prairies tremblo 'neath tho steady tread

When tuo curium icu togcincr in tno scconu

possible Manager Albaugh appeared between
Iho two halves of tho curtain and chocked tho
audlenco. Ho said that when tbo building of
tbo theater was first talked of, thu Light! 11
lantry had promised iho peoplo of Washington
a building worthy of the city, Ho had prom
ised them a theater worthy of th,o city. Tho
Light Iufantry hod Kpt its promise. It do

It Is of bluo velvet, with a deep Roman bor

section running back 011 rings. It Is a beauti
ful affair, and worked excellently last night,
notwithstanding it was not In position until
late tn tho afternoon.

For many days after tho election they, In

Tlie'so exuberant and vociferous claims havo

TlF.ni.tK, Nov. 10. Tbo German now (papers
congratulate America upon the democratic
victory and recognlzo Gov. Cleveland us a
notublo man, of clear and steady Judgment,
and bonorablo Intentions nnd energy, and
eminently fitted for his task. Tho Cologne
(lazillc claims that tha German voto hud a

"Who will mourn for Iho 10 per centers?"
asked ono treasury clerk of another In tho
Dairy Lunch room yesterday.
"Guess they'll havo to mourn ror each
other 7"' was tho reply. "But why should
there ha any tears shed by or for Iho Shy
locks 7" asked a Hr.rviil.tCAN reporter. Ho
was soon acquainted with tho reason. Tho
members of this class Indicated aro not much
beloved by any, although many seem to re
gard tbclr services as Indlspensahlo to their
welfare nnd even cxlstcncn. l'otv men who
want S100, and want It bad, think S10 too much
fur a month s accommodation without ado
qtiato security, as If they had collateral they
would not bo likely to pay such a rato of in
tcrcst at nil. Then tbcro aro somo pcoplo
philosophical enough to rcmetnlier probably
tho many Instances In which tho lender never
sees lilt principal again, and only gets tho In
terest that ho has had tbo foresight to re
tain, nnd thus decreuso his posslblo
loss. But, taken na whole, humanity It not
very sympathetic with tho woos of thoso gen
tlemen, and It was with demonstrations of
satisfaction that thn llnonf bnrrowcrsdl'Cusscd
tho effect of n posslblo change In the inimical
comploxlou or tho administration upon tho
"Ilista iiald 817.o0 a month for n netern
months for tbo loan of SI7.t, or rather (137.50,
which was nil I received." said ono. Now, t
don't proposo to pay my shylock any more. I
principal back twice, and bora Is a llrstrato
plaeo to stop.' '
"You havopald KM) fortheloan ofSl57.M,"
said n erav.halrod victim, who had violated
tho rules of thu room by putting bis milk mug
on a chair whllo ho figured It out. "If you
were to pay him tho principal now you woutd
bo paying S.VI7.50."
"1 urn going to offer my man notes for tho
principal, without further Interest," snld a
quiet man, who was eating dry blicult with
bis buttermilk. "I havo como about as near
to making double restitution to him of tho
original amount that 1 got, nud us I am not at
an certain mat my ncau win go 011, ana wuuiu
like a chanco to hold It as high us tho next
man, I will not go back on my bargain so
badly us my friend there."
"Oh, well, If you nro going to havo aeon
sclenco about It, you may pay for tho privi
lege, nnd all tho satisfaction you can get for
treating tho mau as though ho had a soul."
Tho last speaker seemed to havo hit tbo sen
timent of tho assembled clerks, nud the re
porter was convinced from sub-equcut In
quirios that a pretty general Intention to re
iiiullatn such debts existed amonor thoclorks.
Tho men thoy designate as Sbylocks are ills
giilsod lu evury variety of business. Somo nro
"bankore," others "real estate brokers," "at
torneys," or "Insurance agents," whllo others
conduct a legltlmato retail commercial busi
ness In nddillon to tho other more profit
ablo enterprise. Department officials nro

These do not. as a rulo, contrlbuto nny capital,
but aro let In "on tho ground floor" for tho
sake of the coercive Inllucuco they urn sup
nnsnd to bo able to exerctso over tbelr subor
dinates In office. But tho shiftless class of
clerks seem to be Impelled by a common Im
pulse to bid dctianco to ull dnnger of dismissal,
and let the money lenders whistle for thulr In
terest, nud lu many cases tho principal also.
Tlio amount of money Invested In this busi
ness hero Is estimated ut nearlv n million dol
lars, besides what Is loaned at regular rales
upon collateral or real estate security. That
a largo proportion or it will provo u total Iobs
Is beginning to bo apparent to inauy of uven

publishes tha text of a circular Issued by tbo
Duku of Cumberland whlchhasbecu addressed

and holds that it Is Impossible Tor thu empire

ernment of the duchy without encroaching
upou tho laws aud Justice which formed the
fouudatlon of tbo Herman empire itself. Tho
duke concludes his circular up stating that Iho
lmticrlal constitution contains no authoriza
tion for such refusal, aud If lietsTctusod'hls

right or all other sovereigns will bo Hnucrlled.

Some surprise was expressed yesterday when
It was announced that Col. Ttitrntldo had lost
lilt mlud, and was Ukolyto bo placed In tha
Insano asylum. Tho statement was appar
ently continued when application was mado
during the day to tho dlitrlot commissioners
lor a certificate granting him admission to
that Institution. As ho is charged with em
bezzling tho mouey or the United States wblla
disbursing officer of tho postolllco department,
and Is under Indictment In this district for tha
offense, tho commissioners roforrcd the pur
lins to tbo United Suites district attorney.
Thither they went aud tlio papers wero
looked over. Tbey showed that tha medical
examination had been mado tiy.Drs. N. s.
Lincoln und P. J. Murphy, nnd that both cer
tified to tho Insanity of Ool. Hurnslde. Two
citizens, as tho law reuulred.sltued thecoma,
rate, one of them being Bishop-elect l'arct.
It was nlso signed by r. P. Cuppy, esq., a
member of tho board of visitors to tho asylum.
District Attorney Worthliigton talked with,
somo of tho lutlmutu frlcndt of the family,
and found that tho conduct of Col, Burusido,
nt well ns his ttrango talk, had becu tho
subject of conversation betweon them for
omctlma past, and tho general conclusion
had been reached that bo was fast losing Ida
mind. As this wasnocxciiro In which crlmo
was charged and tho party was Indicted, Mr.
Worthlnglnn suggested that tha law required
111a court siiouia ceriuy stten is i-osu to tuo sec
retary of tho Interior, who would order his
commitment to tho asylum. Tbo law provided,
In caso of tho recovery of a prisoner so com
mitted to the asylum, that bu should again bo
surrendered to the court for trial. He thought
tho best course to pursuo sras for his suretict
to surrender Col. llurntldo to tho court, and
let tha usual regular courso bo pursued. Up ta
the hour of adjournment of tho court ho had.
not been surrendered.
Mr, Buruslde's friends say that ho has shown
tvnit'toinsortircaklinrdowu menially for sev
eral weeks. Ho was very much depressed by
the chariot made against htm. ltcontly, they
statu that ho lias given undoubted o Idenco of
hallucination. When talking his mind has
wandered. Ho seems to hnvo an nalluolnas
lion tnut pcoplo around nun nau no ncaas or,
legs, nud asked huw they got along In such y
crippled condition, ltecently, whllo a num
ber uf friends wero talking with him, ha
hushod them, nnd said tho great suspension,
bridge lu New York was hanging by ono frail
wire, and If they talked it might break and
kill ull tbo Kople niton it.
Ho has appeared upon tbo streets again
lately, but so altered inappcarancothat few
of his former friends recognized him. Hohas
allowed his beard to grow freely, and It now
covers tbo lower part of his lace, whllo a pair
of grccu goggles dlsgulso tho other half. Tha
failure of persons whom ho meets to tako tbo
Initlallvo or even return his salutation has
caused him much distress of mind. Ha hue
brooded over It to such an oxtcnt as to pro
.dtico melancholia, which, added to the ballu
cluutlons ho possesses, make his caso ono lia
ble to devolop into acute mania at any tlmo.
Tho manner of Col. Burnsldo at and oven
before his urrt-st was noticed as bolug strange,
and many of his Irlcndt then recallod this
fact, as an extenuation of his crime, Hint ha
had becu sunstruck und sutfurcd irom fever
some few years before. At tho first hearing In
tho pollco court ho seemed to have no real
izing sense or bis position, though his genial
smlio had been replaced by a stony staro.
The incarceration or Col. Burnsldo in tbo
Insano asylum would havo tlio effect or dis
charging his bondsmen, should they not havo
taken tho district attorney's counsel and sur
rendered their principal.
