HIDING AN ELEPHANT.
Wlat Abbey's Jaunt ii Costing Him.
The Folly ol Attenssstlag lit Kb Nalarlea
sstt American Patronage.
Kkw York, Jan. 18. Several managers
of theatrical companies were seated la tbe
Morton Haute last evening discutttng
Abbey and tbe Metropolitan Elephant,"
as they termed It. "Yes, It ii an elepbatit,
and the biggest one Abbey ever attempted
to ride, " said one, ''I see It is reported
(bat be has already lost $48,000 during the
present teuton. Well, I hardly think bis
losses will reach that figure just at the pres-
ent moment. Whether they will before the
close of the hf&ion Is a question. It would
not require many more Kuch houses to
crush any Impresario as that I saw on Sun
day night at the sacred concert in tbe Met
ropolitan Opera House. Just out of
curiosity I estimated the probable receipts
for that nlbt. Tbey were 11.100; allow
20 per cent, for "paper," and that would
eave less than JtfWO In receipt!!. There
were nine tinkers and the orchestra con
tained seventy-seven pieces. At lewt
tbree of tbe slneers snd tome of tbe orches
tra received be ween $40 and $50 for their
night's work. Taking Into consideration
tbe pay of tbe remainder of tbe performers,
gas bills, advertising, etc., I am greatly
mistaken if Abby Is not out of pocket
at tbe least possible figure $500. S It Is witb
tbe opera. Abbey bat attempted tootjiucb.
Be pays bis artists fabulous prices for
their services, and expects to reap tbe
benefit of giv ng sucb extraordleary enter
tainment! Irom tbe public purie. I think
be ii already too well aware of bis mistake.
Sucb exorbitant wages must not be paid,
then a good manager may bope to score
great financial aucceei in Italian opera.
Not ouly tbe nabob wbo is able to foot a bill
of any number of thousands for subscrip
tions, but tbe moderately wealthy citizens
must be catered to by graduating tbe prices
of seats according to tbelr means. Pay
tbe artists a littleless, apd financial success
la assured. New York cannot support
aucb an elaborate opera season as tbls, at
tbe prices demanded for admission. I
doubt If any city in tbe world can do It
Abbey attempts too mucb. This it a
new sphere for him, of course, and no
doubt In tbia fact lies tbe cause of bla
error."
ANOTHER OPINION.
"I don't be leve Abbey will loseaceot,"
said another well-known manager. "lie
It too old a bird to be caught in tbit way.
I I m not In error be receives a certain
percentage of the receipts before a single
bill is paid. Tbe owners of tbe Opera
House are the loser. They, I bave do
doubt, apprehend tbat financial, y the pro
ject would not be a success the first sea
ion, and tbey will not be disappointed.
Abbey will be tbe ditappointed party. lie
anticipated making money for both
tbe owners and blmself. In tbls respect
hi., expectation! have been far from real
ized. I venture to lay tbat over $50,000
has been lunk in tbe opera season alone
tbui far. If tbe close of the season doe
not find tbe management nearly twice tbat
turn behind, tben my reputation In tbta
business la decidedly Inferior. In my opin
ion, speculators wbo gobble up all tbe most
deilrable seats aod dispose of
tbem at outrageous prices, Lave
plated tbi mischief with Abbey. If
there it not a panic among tbe foot light
favoritiet toet be has hired before the sea
ion is over, because of a failure to recover
tbelr pay, my surprise will be exceedingly
great. Tbe American people work anil
cannot afford such expensive opera. Let
artists and opera managers govern them
selves accordingly. Make prlcea moderate,
and then tbe aucceai of toe finest opera
must be assured."
"Do you think Mr. Abbey Intends to
eontrol tbe Opera hsuse during tbe next
season f"
"If be continues bli present tactics be
would be exceedingly foolish to do to. I
think this, hit first season's experience in
opera, will teaeh him a letson.be never can
forget. If I am not greatly mistaken Col.
Mapleson baa bit eye on the Opera House
at tbe preteut time."
Mr. Abbey left for Philadelphia yester
day evening, where bis opera company is
now tinging.

feeble fluht. Tbe argument Oen. Roger
A. Pryor submitted yesterday wan one of
the ekiiht ever m.ide before any commit
tee, it was simply a bit of
Idle rhetoric mad in tbe
most perfunctory and commonplace
manner. The unanimous action of tbe
committee win send the repeal of the grant
through the House In a great burry. His
not believed tbat twenty votei oould be ral
lied against it. It Is probable, therefore,
tlint the bill will pass on next Monday,
when a Mbuention of the rules will be in
order. There Is such a panic In Congress
at tbe mere mention of tbe name of Hun
tingtcn, that it is posiiole tbat the bill can
be passed without objection. At any rate
It will be pas-ed by tucb an overwhelming
vote that tbe Senate will not dare delay ita

tvr of thee roads provide when tbefr net

shall have tbe authority to regulate charges

JOHN FIT2 PORTER.
Major Steele's Oviiioi of tbs) Celebrated
0am,
Bla Reasons for Preaeaflas; Ike Minor
ity Report Again! the Ueaeral's
Reinstatement.
Washington, Jan. 16. Representative
Steele, of Indiana, wbo presented tbe mi
nority report from tbe House Committee
on Mlllltary Affairs, opposing Fit John
Porter's reinstatement to the arm, said
to an interviewer tbat the case seemed too
important for him to acquiesce, tlirouirli
onurtes, in the report of the majority.
He believes tbat tbe court which convicted
Porter was composed of ton ab'e ami hon
orable men for tbelr Judgment, batted on
fresh personal knowledge of events, to be
cast aside 30 years after tbey considered I he
question.
"Do you not find tbat their verdict and
sentence were Inconsistent?" was aaked.
"Not at all," he replied. "Putyour
self in a position similar to tbat of the
Court. You bave to approve your deci
sion a kind-hearted and humane executive,
a man to whom extreme measures are re
pugnant. If you did not want your man to
go tcot fret, wouldn't you give him a sen
tence that would be likely to be approved
rather than a harm ons which might be
negatived through mercy. There wai no
necessity for inflicting tbe extreme penalty.
All this talk about a five to four court is all
nonsense, No one knows but chat tbe
Court were unanimous."
"You are firmly eonvineed of Porter's
inexcusable disobedienoe, then?"
"How ran I help beta? so in tbe fsee of
bis order? Take that famous 4:30 p.m.
order. Did be proceed against tbe enemy f
Take McDowel's testimony, tbat there
were not obstacles to Porter's sdvsnce."
"You don't admit, then, tbe possibili
ty of Longstreet having been between Por
ter and Jackson's right?"
' 'There Is no evidence tbat Longstreet
was tbere except that given by tbe Con
federates. Even had he been tbere, so
much more reason wby Porter should
have engaged his forces. Wby should he
bave been permitted to rest In seoure Inac
tivity while bis oompanlons were marching
bravely te death In obeyance of ordert? No
matter if Longttreet'i foroes were tbere be
s .ould bave obeyed orders, whatever lay
In bis path. No, I cannot bring myself to
believe tbat be Is to be excused for having
neglected to render tbe first duty of a sol
dier. Tbere may be a feeling against
Cutcbeon aud myself for having taken thia
position in opposition to the rest of tbe
committee, but I oaunot surrender my con
victions, even though I be alone In oppos
ing tbe bill. I think, however, ws shall
find some able champions. "
"Do you know whether Senator Logan
is going to take bis old position In regsrd
to tbe case snd will make much of a
fight?"
"No. I know no more about It than I
have read In the papers."
"What are the principal points In your
report?'
"We base our report on the minority
report of tbe Commutes on Military Af
fairs of the 40th Congress, snd signed by
Anson G. McCook. F. B. Marsh and Thos.
M. liroAn, adding wbat Individual views
we may bold ourselves."
Very reat Interest Is shown In the case
here. Ii Is believed tbe bill will be patse 1

tified on the subject of the mental condi
tion of Jjmes whlcjh bad been frequently a
subject of conversation with herself and
husband, previous to his death. Tbat tbe
