Mr. John Gibson, of Gibson Brothers, tho
Pennsylvania avenuo printers, ia this city, bas
n vivid recollection of the oarly managerial
career of 3Ir. Ford, botli in Baltimore and
Washington. He remembers when Kunkel's
Nightingale Screnaders, composed ot Georse
Kunkel, Harry Lelir, J. K. Search and others,
pave their first entertainments in Baltimore
during 1813-30, in what was known as tho
Aisijuith Street Garden. Tho troupe was
then under tho management of George W.
Harvey. During tho Winter of 1850 3Ir.
rord bocame manager and took the Scre
naders on a trip to 3Iontreal. Upon his re
turn to Baltimoro ho iiisplajed that business
tact and managerial ability by having posters
and.small bills rinted announcing that tho
troupe had had tho honor of appearing be
fore the Governor General of Canada, a
representative ot Her Majesty Queen Victoria.
Mr. Ford had his printing done at the job
office of tho Baltimore Clipper. Mr. Gibson
was then in tho Clipper job ofllce aud "tet
up" somi of tho llrt bills that Mr. Ford had
ordered to bo printed.
Tho success of Kunkel's Nightingale Sere
nades having been assured, a partnership was
formed consisting of John T. Ford (manager),
Gsorge Kunkel and Thomas Moxley, tho lat
ter delineating female diameters. 1 ho troupo
alternated their performances at the old Na
tional Theater, Washington, and Holliday
Ktroct Theater, Baltimore. They traveled
throughout the South, Pittsburg and else

troupes organized in this country, and cvery
where it appeared it gave successful perform

Holliday Street Theater. Baltimore, and tho
Biehmond Theater, .it which regular perform

"Dolly" Davenport and other histrionic stars
well known to fame appeared. The old Na
tional was u kind of training school for ad
venturous aspirants of tho sock and buskin,
and among the number was Theodore Hamil
ton. Mr. Gibson relate? this anecdote of Hamil
ton in connection with Mr. Forrest. Torrest
formed a great fondness for Hamilton, aud
would at times familiarly pat him upon tho
back and predict a brilliant future for him as
an actor. Forrest, however, w oold sometimes
get into ins "tantrums, ' and when so would
frighten every one who plavedwith him in his
respective impersonations. " H so frightened
Humilton ou one occasion when ho became
btuck in his part that lio-rcmaiued away from
the theater for three nights, it taking that
length of time for him to recover his nenojs
equilibrium and fine eourage again to face

ilton had formerly been a printer iu the Balti
more Sun job office. Upon the site whero
now stands Tord's Theater on Tenth street
was formerly a Baptist church. This church
had been converted into a plaj house, at
which George Chri-ty's minstrels gave per

Mr. Tord, and demolished for tho erection
upon its lot of the present Ford's Theater, tho
scene of two tragedies.
Mr. Tord became manager of the theater in
1862. It was closed alter the death of Presi
dent Lincoln, and was up to within nine
months ago occupied as a government build

Eleventh street, states that considcr&ble
progross has been mado on the building sinco

2,200 cubic foet of stone, and 1,200 tons of
iron havo been placed, the brickwork fcclDg

The building will bo one of tho finest of tho
kind in the country. It will havo nine
stories, including basement. Tho most ex
tensive piling has been done to tho founda
tion, which is said by scientific exports to bo
the strongest aud most solid they havo over
seen. Tho basement tloor will be further
solidified by a layer of mixed stono and con
crcto, making it perfectly waterproof. In re
gard to tho superstructure iron will bo used
throughout the entire eight stories, faced
with courses of granite. Tho granite facings
above tho basement will be of dressed stone,
beautifully carved. Tho'specinl feature of tho
new building will be tho ait work, both upon

the knife toward me, and upon its snowy sur

It was a superb toy, this stiletto. It
charmed, It fascinated me, and I longed to
possess the evil but enchanting thing.
"Will you sell it?" I inquired, taking-it
from his hand.
"No! Not for all tho gold on God's planet.
No! It and I have a mission to perform,"
and he put the weapon back in his belt.
Tho train went roaring on, reeling mile
after mile of the Had Laud's fi omits wheels,
till the brakeman cried:
As wo.paused for a passing moment at that
far, strange, quiet station, in the heart of a
delirium tremens landscape, a tall, slender,
handsomo youth came into our car and
seated himself behind me with a sigh of sat
isfaction. I saw Guiseppl start, grow white as tho
fabled rose of death; then, turning In his seat,
he stared out of the window, whilo tho lines
of his face seemed hardening into stone.
Again tho -train thundered on. Again it
stopped nt a prairie station.
"I think I will get off here. Guiseppl," I
said; "I am not feeling well." I shook his
hand and roso to depart. Stepping upon the
p'atform, I found that I was followed by the
joung passenger from Medora, and Just back
of him came Guiseppi, looking as grim as a
Nemesis on some hell-terrible vengeanco bent.
All threo of us went to tho onlv hotel in the

I went down stairs. I waited for my.com
paaions of tho day before to join me at the
breakfast table. They, came not. They
would never come.
We went to the room of Guiseppl. It was
vacant. We went to tho room of the voung
stranger. Guiseppi was there. He pointed
loiheleil Upon it lay the unknown youth,
rigid iu death, the stiletto in his heart, the
blood drib, drip, dripping from his breast,
"Murder!" I cried, staggering back.
"Nav. s'geor. I am no murderer." an
swered Guiseppi, calmly' lighting a cigarette.
"That devil there was kind enough to save

I heard the whistle cf a couing train.

THE TAX ii PON LAGER,
.Mr. Wight Illuminates the Hccr Situa
tion. Tho pull of tho brewers and the regard for
tho German vote, sajs tho Chicago Inter
Ocean, is more apparent in tho Senate bill
even than in the House bilL Notwithstand
ing tho recommendations of David A. Wells
and the implied approval of the Secretary of
tho Trcauary that there should be an in
creaso of SI a barrel tax upon beer, which
would givo $32,000,000 of revenue, the in
crease tax was refused. But in the House no
attempt was mado to give to the brewers any
add.tional advantages boyonil tho refusal to
increaso the barrel tax. Tho brewers' agents
were very activo about the Housj. aud one of
the Demo ritie meintcrsof Congress at that
time, who was elected by the money and
in!lun-ij of the brewers, was an avowed
attorney for the lUorest of the brewers
wi.e-i tho bill was uud-r consideration by
tje Wnvs and Means Committee. In
the Senate, however, there was 11 brewer a
member of that lo ly, who was 01.0 of tho so
called conservatives, whos vote is needed
aud to whom many concessions wero made.
Senator Murpby. of Troy, N. ., is tha man.
No c bange is made in the internal tates on
beer, but a reduction is made in the duty on
ejloring for beer, so that the brewers, in-tcad
of Leiug asked to pay more, get lower rates,
not only for their coloring matter, but for
hops and other things u-ed by them. More
over, the Western brew ers secured an incrcife
of 5 per cent, in barley and an increase of 5
I cr cent. Iu barley malt.
"Stop .My Paper!"
Every man has a right, says tho Now York
Voice, to tako a paper or to stop it for any
reason or for no reason at all. But at the
s.imo time there is ,1 certain responsibility at
taching to all actions, even to so trivial a one
as stopping a paper because the editor says
something ono doesn't agre-v with. There is
eompi.unt that newspaper editors lack fear-iessne-s
and honesty; that newspapers aro
too generally mere partisan organs that dis
regard tho claims oi truth aud juslice when
political iut rests nrj at stake. Thoro is too
much truth in the charge. But let us ask how
it is possible (pr a fearless, hancst, outspoken
journal to live if cveiy man is to cry "Stop
my paper" whenever up rends something that
does not accord w.th his views? The men
who insist that the pajier they read shall never
say anything eoutraiy to their views are tho
ones who aro in largo measure responsible
for tho craven cowardliness and the
weathercock propsnsitles of modern journal
ism. In a community composed entirely of
these "Stop my paper" people true independ
ent journalism would bo an impossibility.
When you are convinced that a paper is dis
honfst" and deceitful, stop it. When con
vinced that it is unclean, stop it When it
lacks enterprise and fails to givoyoulho news,
stop it. When somo other paper gives you
more ot aluo. stop it. But don't stop a paper
that yoii believe to be henest. courageous, en
torpnsmff and clean simplybeeauso its editor
was written his own sincere views instead of
