Auy one who scans the newspapers of
the time will discover that the foremoet
topics and the most prominent affairs as
to space in many journals are theatrical.
The press teems with them, society is rife
with them, and "professional" ambition
and renown are regarded as the most
landable and enviable. The rebound in
popular estimation from the old time
severity in regard to players to the present
absurdity of prominence, is not a healthy
indication of publio sentiment.
In some issues of our best leading papers
throughout the oountry reprehensible
;waddle concerning singers and actors
aosupieß the room of better reading. If
ft be in deferenoe to a public desire for
such gossip it is questionable «nterprige
on the part of journals publishing such an
9X688 of it, to the exclusion of the best
mental product expected of them by their
best Bupport. There is no "profession" in
the world that reap 9 such a harvest from
newspaper mention, without paying for it
in any proportion to the value reoeived.

to newspaper prodigality of mention in

military experiment at the onset to start
Irving out on the dramatic circuit without
any word save the advertised announce
ments of his performances, and a just
criticism thereafter, and what kind of a
tour would he have had t F[at, stale and
probably unprofitable. The oom

At the approach of these sublime mor

guarded portals and bids them
welcome. Why ? You'd be at a loss to
answer unless you quoted the redundanoy
of journalistic adulation.
After dusk in the city of New York no
woman of any standing whatsoever will be
allowed in any first class restaurant with
ont a male escort. And yet no hotel or
restaurnnt in the ooantry would refuse to
receive Patti and Nioolini, aye, and give
them royal attention.
Why t The only answer is that in the
first instance it is a philanthropic desire
to shut lone women out of harm's way, and
ia the other—the harm—if any bein#
done, and the male escort being provided

Patti traveling in a superbly appointed

musical thrall, is incomparably ahead of
the Empress of Russia in all the material
advantages of life. No dreams of ramb

In her regnant artistic sway the press
has had a manifest hand. Paris and

eloquence the incomparable beauty of

Tho papers harp upon this stage theme
in all its variations until the most reluc
tant memory is foroed to note the distaste
ful details. You take np your favorite
paper—and tho first one who
monopolies an undue shiraof notice —free
advertising—is Lawrence Barrett. His
agents send neatly printed proof slips to
the New York papers with the request
'' please notice." This is the sampla:
Several timeß has Mr. Barrett croesod the sea
for pleasure, and each time he has visited Lon
don, whore ho has been a favorite guest at sun
dry of the prominent clubs and in society, and
there he has frequently mat tho Prince of Wales.
Not only that, but it is whispered that the
Princess of Wales lias taken an unusul interest
in him and that her patronage is the prospective
guarantee of his brilliant triumph in the British
capital. Among the few of Mr. Barrett's friends
who aro aware of this rumor opinions differ
whether the Princess is more charmed with him
personally or histrionically; or whether, piqued
at tho Prince's; attention to American ladies, she
has found a worthy subject and thinks to retal
iate in kind.

Francesca di Rimini has been the great
euccess of Barrett's stage career. He has
made largs sums of money night
ly by it, and he begrudged
the author the email royalty agreed upon,
and quarrels over an addition to it.
Of all the men who tread the boards,
Barrett is the least liked and respected be
tf.inse of his paltry, tyranioal ways. Had
he been treated as he treats his subordin
ates, euccess would never have come to
him. No generosity of applause ever mel

associate in the plaudit-causing scene.

A story went the rounds not long ago
about Mr. Barrett's insisting upon the
landlord of some hotel taming George H.
Pendleton out of the best room because it
had been secured by the Barrett represen
tative in advance of his master's coming,
and in that unlucky interval pending the
potentate's arrival Boniface had audao
loasly given it to the Gentleman George,
who not mouthing and grimacing and pos
turing at bo much a night, never presumed
nponjioy prerogative- save "the grand old
support as an"English snob actor. "Here's
a lucky chance to inflate, and some friends
write a well advertised "defence," by
informing a receptive world that
the traduced actor is "a member of the |
well known family of Savin, a nephew of
the historian Grote and a university man."
Now this sweeps the board—although it
seems to have taken a great deal of dis
tinction to play second man in Henry Ir

pearl in a glass of 'alf and 'alf.
"Why, "says Mrs. Harris," nojwocder ex

press to wreak its brain upon. By the I

THE VERJIILYE CASE.
Another Stay of Proceedings Had.
From yesterday's devalopemonts it looks
aa though the requisition proceedings
against Daniel B. Vermilye had about
made a quietus. A telegram was received
by Attorney General Hahn yesterday.from !
the district attorney of New York,advising
him to drop all proceedings in the case
until further advices were received from
the empire state. This is regarded by
the friends of Mr. Vermilye as practically
ending all further attempts at prosecution
in the matter. In pursuance to instructions
Judge Wood, to whom the case was re
ferred, adjourned the hearing until Tuesday
morning at 10 o'clock, when the matter
will be finally disposed of.
A Globe reporter met Detective Heidel
berg at the Merchants hotel yesterday af
ternoon, and asked how he liked the turn
affairs had taken.
"It suits me well enough," he replied; "if
there is anything wrong I want to know it,
and if the indiotment is not straight
it ia only just that Vermilye
should have a hearing. Of course I i
don't want to take a man unjustly, but if
my papers are right I want my men.. I
suppose the adjournment was brought
about by Mr. Gorman, who iB in New

ters Bent by the government to the com
missioner, Dec. 22, 1883, upen whioh the
commissioner ordered on examination to
be made by Maj. Lnse, the government
Indian agent. This agent made, or pre
tended to make this visit, and so reported
to the cominissioners,and also that no suf
fering existed among the Mille
Lacs, but that they were ~in a
comfortable condition. Soon after
this, affidavits were made by five or six
citizens of Mille Lao, whioh were in total
contradiction of the agent's statement to
the commissioner, and which showed that
Maj . Luse made no examination whatever
of the condition of the Indians, and avoid
ed any conference with them. These affi
davits were forwarded to Gov. Hubbard,

Alleged Fraudulent Transfer.
Otis Corbin filed a suit in the district
court yesterday egainst Jsne M. Jaggor, to
recover an unpaid judgment given by the
court in his favor against her husband
John, which the complaint alleges be
(John) is hiding from. Tfco paper goes
on to state that John has lately paid
$8,500 for two parcels of real
estate with money earned by
himself, whioh property is now valued
at $16,000, and vested the title deeds in his
wife. Therefore the plaintiff prays the
court that 'this property be adjudged
that of John instead of Jane, that bis
judgment be made a lien upon the same,
and that it be sold to satisfy it.
