We congratulate the management
of the Bijou Theatre on their action
in cancelling the engagement of the
Madame Hose's Octoroons and thJ
Georgia Ministrcls which played at
that house Monday night. They were
well advertised and billed to give
five performances in this city. Mon
day nignt's performance was a dis
grace, and we hope such a farce
will never be inflicted upon an un
suspecting audience in the city arnin.

DR. ROSCOE G1T.ES CERTIFIED
FOR CITY SANITARIUM.
Chicago, Feb. 3. Despite the pro
tests of the 700 patients of the mu
nicipal tuberculosis sanitarium, the
Civil Service Commission today cer
tified Dr. Roscoe Giles, colored, as a
junior physician at the institution
and the doctor will probably take up
Jiis duties there Thursday.
Dr. lilies' name was the second ol
three to be certified by the commis
sion in response to a Requisition
i-igned by Dr. C. P. Caldwell, presi
0c.it of the ttoard of directors of the
institution. Dr. Leo English, another
1 hysidan certified, is also colored,
but he has already announced that
he will waive appointment. The
ifirst man to her certified is Dr. Iaza
rus Cobler. This exhausts the eligi
ble list for junior physicians.
Several days ago, when it looked as
if Dr. Giles would be appointed tu a
physician, the patients in the sanita
rium held an indignation meeting
and were loud in their protests. The
patients voted that if the colored
man wasi sentt to the hospital as a
physician they would march in a
body to the city hall and lay their
protests before the Mayor.
