W. W. ALEXANDER
Audience and a
George Wilson has got a great min-.
strel show. That is a solid chunk of
truth without any taffy about it. Tho
company opened in Elmira last night
before a magnificent audience, every
Beat being occupied and many standing
up. For a first night tho performance
ran very smoothly. The
entertainment opened with "Beau
Brummels," with correct costumes
.of the period, and their suits were
not only new, fresh and clean, but
very handsome and tasty. The company
was arranged on a series of
raised platforms and tho chairs cov
ered with red plush, making a very
pleasing effect. Elmira's Dan Quintan,
in a resplendent suit, occupied
the interlocutor's seat, and was a
bright star in the galaxy. The appearance
of tho Fulton brothers in
song and dance, ''The Special Delivery
Staff," brought applause and
they were compelled to respond.
Dick Clark's melange, "Think Quick,"
was funny and made the audience
gasp for breath. One of the beBt
things in the first part was Hi Tom
Ward's ''Tho Dandy Personified."
He caught the audience immediately,
and his dude walk brought rounds of
laughter. Ward is a minstrel man
all the way through. He was presented
with a boquetof flowers. The
appearance of Wilson and Donnelly
increased the amusement and the
former's "Gone, Gone. Gone," and
Wilson's ''Speak Easy in Saratoga,"
were very amusing and enjoyable.
The company contains a number of
fine vocalists, 0. D. Davis, Will. E.
Nankiville, Will. Walling, M. Rale,
comprising a vory strong quartet.
They did excellently last night. The
first part went off with a dash and
vim that was refreshing, the jokes
were new and free from vulgarity or
coarseness, and the finale, arranged
by Frank'Dumont, exhibited a novel
way to kill Indians and was a laughable
ending to the part.
The second part contained some
first-class specialties. George Wilson
never appeared to better advantage.
His new songs, new methods and
ideas were many, and he captured
the audience and made them laugh.
Napier and Marzollo are a pair of the
greatest bar performers in the world,
and Bunnell and Rankin have no
superiors in musical comedy. ''Our
Colored Sweethearts" did some nimble
dancing and high kicking, and
the French Empire clog was great,
William Rowo's clog solo being the
greatest ever seen on the stage, and
his pedestal act wonderful.
Tho entertainment concluded with
Frank Dumont's burlesque, "The
Tar (colored) Tartars," arranged for
William Henry Rice, who appeared
as Carmoncita and Sara Bernhardt.
Mr. Ivice, is one of tho greatest
female impersonators in tho world.
His make-ups aro as good as they
could be, and his act one that is a
fitting climax to such an entertainment.
The burlesque also gives Emperor
George a part which he makes
As said, George Wilson has a great
show this year. It is perhaps saying
a good deal, but tho Star does not
believo a bettor one was over on the
road. Ho ought to make a barrel of
money out of it, and his many friends
here will hope ho will. He certainly
got a good start in Elmira. The
company plays in Syracuso to-night.

A FOREIGN TRIUMPH,
Sells Brothers Return
Crowned With Victorious
On the sixteenth of October last
Sells Brothers Big Show of the World
sailed from San Francisco for Sydney,
Australia, .thus Inaugurating the most
extraordinary and venturesome tour
of Its kind on record, and which was
destined to bear the golden fruit of
a proportionate success. The leading
journals of America all backed its
pluck and enterprise with the strongest
editorial assurances that its proprietors
were entitled to universal respect
as representatives of the best
type of genuine American manhood,
and their great exhibition to all the
popularity and success such owership
ought to confer. That they never
compounded with fraud by claiming
that "tho people liked to be humbugged."
That they acted upon tho
wise and just principle of giving their
patrons more than their money's
worth, and always recognized that
ono man's money was as good as an
other's, by giving the same complete
show in every place of exhibition,
instead of stuffing the metropolis and
then starving the farmer, under the
pretense of serving him the same
feast. That they treated the public
fairly, and by so doing gained the
full backing of popular confidence
in their promises. Thoao made to
the people of Australia certainly
suggested the biggest feast of animated
wonders and amazing acts
ever spread before an eager throng,
and of the tens and hundreds of
thousands who patronized the show
during its six months' Australian
season there is proof, universal, emphatic
and undeniable that not one
went away disappointed or dissatis
It is evident that only merit, and
that of the most pronounced kind,
could secure good words from a not
overpartial, independent and critical
foreign press; and when it unanimously
conceded, as it did even before the
show was able to utilize a single
horse in any way, that its surpassing
greatness was no vain boast, it settled
the question of honest supremacy
both at home and abroad. The
great Sydney dailies remarked that
multiplying circuses and stages and
entertainments might appear at first
sight to be a waste of energy and
talent, but there was no denying the
impre3siveness that it lends to the
show as a whole. That the spectator
felt himself bewilderingly amazed by
the variety of the efforts made for
his entertainment. That space failed
them to note all the striking features
of a programme almost as complicated
as a railway time-table. This
one thing, however, remained distinctly
clear: That in Sells Brothers'
amusement arithmetic, ciphers don't
count. No aggregation of them will
make a unit; neither will any number
of commonplace things and unkown
fill-ups make a great show.
The Messrs. Sells know this, and their
.united grand Australian living exhibit,
monster menagerie, regal
Roman hippodrome, triple circus,
elevated Olympian stage, aerial displays,
tribe of wild Bedouin warriors,
children's fairyland frolic, darkest
Africa aquariitm, spectacular pilgrimage
to Mecca, and Arabian Nights'
entertainments, include and represent
only that which is most wonderful,
excellent, exciting and refined. From
performing mammoth, or huge disporting
amphibia, to daintiest detail,
there is nothing inferior or commonplace
about this extraordinary rich
and attractive alliance. It possesses
every feature, feat and display of
both home and foreign origin, in
keeping with such an entertainment,
that can be procured, and many no
where else to be seen; and all will be
exhibited at Frankfort, on Monday,
September 12, just as advertised, and
with the honorably won prestige of
holding first place in two great empires,
thousands of miles apart.
