Tragedy at the Grand—Tlie "Bajah" and Other
Attractions for this Week — The '■•Patfifinders"
at the Olympic — Gossijjs and Notes About the
The engagement of Keene, tragedian, closed at
the Grand last night after a week of Shakesper
ean draraf, artistically impersonated, fairly pat
ronized and thoroughly appreciated and enjoyed.
Of the respective performances this paper has
hitherto spoken at length.
Mr. Carl Ahrendt, one of the principals in the
support of Mr. Thomas Keene, is an old St. Paul
boy, who nearly eleven years since abandoned
mercantile pursuits in this city for his first love—
the stage. He has been with Mr. Keene for
three years and is a highly esteemed member of
the company both as an actor and as stage man
ager. He is of a sunny disposition and makes
friends wherever he goes. He has been warmly
welcomed by his great number of friend* in St.
Paul and a renewal of friendship has been ran
tually pleasant. It is gratifying to know that
Mr. Ahrendt has been financially successful and
that his wife and children are well and happy in
their eastern home on the Hudson river.
Mr. Ed-ward P. Hilton, the popular manager,
has arranged to take the management of the
< ilympic theater on Seventh street for the sum
mer season, and he has scored a number of very
excellent attractions. The summer season will
open on June SBd with the "Four Emerald's"
combination, a company composed of eighteen of
the most celebrated speciality artists, all enjoy
ing a New York reputation. Mr. Hilton is an
abli- manager and he deserves a full measure of
The JCadif of l.i/ons.
Thos. W. Keene the great tragedian gave for
the first time in St. Paul, yesterday afternoon,
Bulwer Lytton's beantiful play "The Lady of
Lyons" to a fine audience, and almost filled
house. He slave a truly graud presentation of
"Claude Melnotte," coming fully up to the
standard, and excellent efforts of the week. The
progress of the performance surely developed
Borne strong and satisfactory playings. There
v:,s that sustained, eveuess of interest that
marks the efforts of the tragedian. Mr, Keene's
personation of this character will be remember
ed with pleasure in St. Paul. The pathos and
beauty of the softei tones of Lytton's passionate
production, are at many points
toutched by "Keene" with the air
and accent of the artist. His
recital of the lines, forecasting the home in
Which the "Prince of Como" and his bride will live
out the future w:\s a grand piece of elocntion,
While his conception of the remorse repentance,
ami high resolve which stirs the soul of "ClaWde
Melnotte," when following the revelation in his
mother's home be finds that Pauline still loves
him, and defends himself rgainst the aspersions
of her parents, was exceptionally powerful and
Probably in few characters presented by Keene
does he make more liberal uses of his abilities in
a light part than he does as "Claude." The sup
port was all that could be wished for.
The P.uiline of Miss Anna Warren Story was all
that could be wished for.
The "Widow Slelnotte" of Miss Constance
Hamlim was entirely satisfactory. The other
members of the company gave a support far
above the average.
•John T. ii:t fiini>ml.
Commencing on Thursday evening John T
Raymond, the comedian, will open an engage
ment at the Grand in his new play entitled, "Fo*
Congress." The New York Commercial Adver
tUtr refers to the production as follows: Since
Mr. John T. Raymond was fitted with the charac
ter of Col. Mulberry Sellers in the "Golden Age"
he has appeared here in no part that is better
suited to his unique peculiarities than that of
General JosiahLimber, in "For Congress," a
fclay from the pen of Mr. D. D. Lloyd, which was
produced at the Fourteenth Street theatre last
night, yor the adequate display of Mr. Ray
mond's talent and method, it is by no means
necessary that his respective roles should move
through elaborate plots. The most that is re
quired is the production of a series of ludicrous
situations which are felt to be rather due to the
quality of the role itself than to any inventive
faculty of the dramatist; with such situations
Mr. Lloyd's play is liberally provided, and the re
pult is an evening of incessant laughter such as
is not to be had just now in any other city thea
ter. "For Congress" is a broad burlesque upon
the politics of our country and the methods of
THE OLYMPIC THEATER.
"The Pathfinders," and a Good Bill An
Manager Simon of the Olympic theater, is de
lerving of all praise for his untiring offorts to
furnish the amusement patrons of St. Paul, and
especially the residents of lower town, with first
class entertainments at popular rates.
The attraction for the ensuing week at this
popular resort is at once refined, elegant and di
verting. Reference is made to the appearance
of "The Pathfinders," which open an engage
ment o-morrow evening.
This is decidedly one of the best combinations
on the road and it is deserving of liberal patron
In referring to the performance the Louisville
Commercial speaks as follows: The performance
is one of many phases, and touches the risibles
of the looker-on with countless drolleries and
funny incidents. "Scraps" was the name of the
mixture ; it is a history of a little pleasure excur
sion by water, of a party of two ladies, two gen
tlemen, and a fifth wheel in the form of a ludi
crous black African attendant. When they first
appear it is at the steamboat landing, having
more than two hours to wait, they pass the time
in songs, choruses, picnicing and miscellaneous
fan. Each of the five contribute a big armful to
the merits of the entertainment. An incidental
exhibition before the excursionists brings in the
wonderful acrobats, the "Milton Jaspers." who
perform apparently impossible feats, and are re
ceived with great applause. The stage settings
an 9 appointments have been carefully perfected.
The steamboat is a mechanical success.
House of Hope Organ Concert.
Among the pleasant musical events announced
for the ensuing week is one that cannot fail to
enlist the attention and invite the patronage of all
sincere lovers of musical art, the more so from
the fact that it is pnrely a local, albeit none the
less creditable, enterprise. Reference is made to
the organ recital at the House of Hope church,
to be given next Tuesday evening by Prof. Gar
ratt, the organist of the church. The pro
gramme is exceedingly fine, and it should assure
a large attendance. It is as follows:

The halcyon days of Col. Knauff's original
lummer garden, in the sweet summer time Ifng
Bgo, was vividly recalled last midnight by a
serenade tendered the Globe staff band by the
Pelletier quartette, a band of musicians first in
troduced to the St. Paul public at the original
summer garden and in the public gardens at Rice
park. The quartette is composed of a flute,
harp and two violinists, and the sweet concord
ance of harmony as strune to the score of several
popular airs never sounded sweeter than last
Bight. The quartette arrived yesterday from

music of the opera is sparkling and sweet, the
plot very funny. It will be elegantly costumed,
and every attention paid to stage details. The
entertainment is to be given under the auspices
of the High School Debating sociej^.
The Standard Club,
A very flourishing and pleasant institution,
has just made a contract for fine club rooms to
occupy the second and third stories of an ele
gant brick building which Mr. Philip Harris is
about to erect at the corner of Jackson and Eight
streets. The building will be 50x100 feet and
very ornamental. There will be approaches
from both streets. The lower story occupied by
the club will have on the Jacksou street front, a
library and reading room "3x20 feet, and a bil
liard hall of the same dimensions; back of
them will be a dining ball with closets, 48x34
feet. Ladies parlor, pantry and sideboard room
17x18 feet, and a reception room, cloak and
toilet rooms are still beyond the dining hall and
aiso a spacious kitchen with every convenience.
Conveniently located stairs lead to the third
floor which is to be splendidly arranged for a
theater and ball room. At the
rear is a finely proportioned stage twenty-six
feet deep and twenty-live feet wide, provided
with the most modern and perfect stage acces
saries, and having "green room" and fine dress
ing rooms. This stage will be supplied with a
complete set of fine scenery. The auditorium
will be seventy-three feet long and the whole
width of the building, audit will seat from 700 to
800 people. This hall is very high, and admira
bly ventilated, and it will be found available for
many purposes. The club rooms will be fur
nished at a cost of probably not less than SS,(H>O,
and will be the finest and most complete club
quarters in the northwest. Much credit is due
to the president, Mr. H. J. Strouse, for the in
terest and enterprise he has shown in bringing
this splended result to perfection. The club is
in a most prosperous condition, with seventy
five male members, and the active and interested
co-operation of a large number of devoted ladies.
The rooms are to be finished and ready for occu
pancy by October 1.
Tlie Xortliirestern Traffic Association
Troubles Grotoing Jlore Serious,
[Chicago Tribune, 24.]
The Northwestern Traffic association is still in
hot water and unable to find means to get out.
Another meeting was held yesterday at commis
sioner Carman's oftice to see what could be done
to settle the troubles regarding the competition
by the St. Paul & Omaha's Washburn line with
out coming any nearer a settlement than here
tofore. In order to prevent any one line from
taking advantage of another by cutting rates or
other means a resolution was passed that the per
centage should be equalized at the end of each
line, and those lines which had exceeded their
percentages should be made to turn their busi
ness over to the lines that had run .behind. But
as soon as this was done the St. Paul & Omaha
claimed that the resolution did not apply to the
business going by its Washburn line in connec
tion with the Lake Superior Transit company.
This caused quite a rumpus, but the Omaha line
refused to recede from its position, and a recess
was finally taken. In the afternoon the general
freight agents met again and discussed the ques
tion of allowing the Duluth line a per centage for
its business in connection with the Lake Superior
Transit company. General Freight Agent High
land, of the Omaha line, again came to the front,
and demanded that one-half of the Dulutu's
business should go over its Washburn line.
The other roads contended that the Omaha line
had no right whatever to make such a demand us
it was already getting 10 per cent, extra for its
Washburn business, which was as much as it
could ask for. General-Freight Agent Ililand
said he had to consult President Hughitt before
he could c hange his position, and he was sent to
look up Mr. Hnghit and consult with him, but
when he returned he reported that he could not
find Mr. Huchitt. Mr. Bird, of the Milwaukee
& St. Paul, then stated that he could not remain
any longer, as he had to take the train for Mil
waukee, important bnsiness calling him there.
It was therefore agreed to adjourn until this
morning, and General-Freight Agent Ripley, of
the Burlington, was authorized by Mr. Bird to
represent the Milwaukee & St. Paul during his
absence. The committee appointed the day be
fore to hold another conference with General-
Manager Evans, of the Lake Superior Tram-it
Company, and try to effect an arrangement by
which the cutting of rates could be stopped has
been prevailed upon to accept, and the meeting
will be held as soon as the attendance of Mr.
Evans can be secured.
Nothing whatever has yet been done to stop
the difficulty arising from the competition of the
Illinois Central and the Diamond Joe Line of
Upper Mississippi steamers. This matter is al
most as serious as the trouble with the Lake
Superior Company, and the Milwaukee & St.
Paul and Northwestern are meeting all rates
made by the Illinois Central and the Diamond
Joe Line, •
