The "Rajali"—Sketeh of the Plot.
That brilliant and diverting comedy, "The
Rajah," which has had such a long and prosper
out career at the New York Madison Square the--
Rter (whereat was given for 150 nights), will be'
eeen at the Grand Opera house, commencing
this evening. -
"The Rajah" embodies | all that is bright and
Sparkling, with a few pathetic touches, and novel
■cenie display. The famous home theater com
pany will appear the play in this city. There
is every indication that "The Rajah" will attract
a large and elegant audience.
The story of the play Is given herewith:
An English country gentleman dies, leaving by
trill an estate to his nephew, Harold Wyncot, and
making him guardian -of Gladys • Wyncott, his
cousin, whom he has never seen. ' Harold, by
reason of his indolent and luxurious lire in India,
■ has gained among his brother officers the soubri
quet of "The Rajah." ■On his arrival in England
he meets with a frigid reception from Gladys,
who has formed an antipathy to him because of a
letter describing his indolent life. Presently a
number of coal miners employed on the estate,
being on the point of a strike, come to make de- |
mands. Cragin, their leader, refuses to ilaniove i
his hat when requested to do so by Harojil, and i
he snatches it from his head, dashes it,to the
ground, and quietly walks away, leaving"them
stricken with amazement. In the next act wo
find that Harold raises the wages of the strikers,
hut Insists that Cragin shall be immediately dis
charged instead of being made overseer as de
manded. In the third act a gang of . rioters, led
by Crazin. ore approaching to wreak
vengeance on Harold. when he
confronts them alone, and, being
assured by them that they want Crngin for an
overseer, he produces a handbill, and reads a de
scription of an escaped convict which tallies with
that of Cragin, who rushes upon Harold, but the
latter hurls him to the ground, and, tearing aside
his shirt, exposes the convict brand upon. his j
ehoulder. In the last act another will is discov- j
ered, which gives the property to Gladys, and |
Harold turns over the property and announces ■
his intention to return to India. Gladys, left '
alone, is confronted by Cragin who, pistol in 1
hand, has come to wreak vengeance on Harold. j
She offers him money and jewels to desist, but
be remains obdurate. Finally she promises him
a letter, signed by Harold,, giving him free pass
age on an out-going coal ship, which will enable
him to evade the law. This prevails, and Cragin
conceals himself. Gladys calls Harold, and he
writes the letter in a state of mystification, but,
before she can hand it to Cragin, he springs to
wards the hiding place. 'Cragin comes forward,
esying: "There is one here braver and stronger
than you, and she says let the convict go." Har
old hands over the letter. The convict becomes j
pathetic, tells the story of his life, and winds up
with, "You draws your own moral." Harold
ejaculates: "And what moral, Gladys, shall we
draw?" She throws the new will into the grate, j
rushes to his arms, and Harold announces to the
others as they enter that he has received ft new
appointment— of "guardian for life."
Shakespeare Set to Music.
It is curious as well as interesting to observe
the influence which the Shakespearean drama I
has exercised upon the lyric stage. About a |
dozen of the principal plays have already fur- i
nished librettos for as many leading musical !
Somposers. Mendelssohn has written music to
the Midsummer Night's Dream, and Carl Maria
Ton Weber has put it into the form of an opera
tinder the title of Oberon, and that, too, when suf- |
eringthe agonies of sickness and poverty, writing j
for bread. Rossini has left Othello among his
operas, and Verdi had given us Macbeth. Am
brose Thomas has written Hamlet, and Camille.
St. Saens had recently produced, with great suc
cess, in Paris, Henry VIII. Richard 111 has been I
set to music by Salvyre, and Romeo aud Juliet, I
by Chas. Gounod. The Marquis d"lvry has also
produced the latter under the title of The Lovers
of Verona. The Merry Wives of Windsor by I
Nicolai, and The Taming of the Shrew, by
Goetze, have both been successes. The musical
world is now looking forward with great interest
to the latest Shakespearean addition to the lyric
It has been known for years that the distin
guished author of Aida, Signor Verdi, was en- j
gaged upon the libretto of a grand opera, found
ed upon Shakespeare's tragedy of »Othello, and
the latest advices from Italy convey the gratify
ing information that he has at last put the fin
ishing touches to the musical score, and that

A League of Merchants Against Rail
way Pooling 1 Discriminations.
New York, Special, May 23.—This after
noon seventy-four representative business
men of New York, representing the Traders'
& Travelers' union (co-operative), held a
meeting in the National Citizens' bank
building on Broadway. The charter of this
union has been subscribed to by thirty differ
ent business interests, and represents $350,
--000,000 worth of capital. "Not a man or a
firm on there, gentlemen," said an enthus
iastic promoter of the new enterprise as he
ran his eye down the list, "but does an an- |
nual business of more than 51,000,000, and
some of them do between 8-0,000,000 and
$40,000,000." This union was referred to in
these dispatches last night, and has been
formed by merchants to oppose oppressive
discriminations made against them by the j
railroads, the telegraph companies and the
express companies. Four merchants have
been quietly at work for a year planning the
matter. Everything has been done secreth",
and no word of it has reached the public or
The meeting to-day was devoted to discuss
ing the subject, aud representative men
gave instances of the manner in which the
railroad freight pool discriminates against
New York merchants.
A wholesale cotton dealer said: •'Freight
shipped from the mills in the east can be
sent through to the west and south cheaper
than we can send it from this city, though it
must pass through here on the journey.
AVestern merchants can buy eastern goods
cheeper in Chicago than they can buy them
here. The difference in freight alone is profit
on the goods."
Other instances were quoted in aiffercnt
lines of business, and it was agreed that the
only way to fight the monoply was work in
"The railroads tell us," said one speaker,
"that if we will not let them ship our goods
under their pool arrangement, but insist on
sending them over the roads we wish to, they
will carry them only to the extent of the par
ticular line named in the bill and we must
have men to make the transfer at all chang
ing points. Very well, we will do that, if
necessary. We are thoroughly in earnest in
The merchants discussed other imposi
tions on them and their commercial agents
by railroad and express companies andWr-r
--charges in telegraph rates, and then adopted
a report setting fourth at length the steps al
ready taken aud the purpose of the organiza
tion. Officers were elected.
From all that could be learned by talking
with the members of the organization, it is
designed to break up the existing freight pool
system, unless some arrangement is made
to give manufacturers and merchants in this
city the same previleges enjoyed by others at
"I do not think there will be any difficulty
in agreeing upon a plan," said Mr. Abel
Crook, "if Mr. Fink will meet our board of
directors and talk the matter over. He
might have to abandon some of the tenets;
but then he ought to abandon them. It is
simply a question between the railroads and
the men who furnish them with their busi
"But suppose the roads in the pool decline
to treat with you, what can you do?"
"I will answer that suppesition by suppos
ing something else. Suppose that we all
agree to send our freight over one road,
would that road find it for its iuteref ts to re
main in the pool? What is to hinder Mr.
Vanderbilt from sending all we give him
through to the west or the south in spite of i
the pool if he chooses to? He has all his !
"Does Mr. Vanderbilt know of this move- !
"I do not think he does. We have not
consulted with railroad people, though I
think Commissioner Fink has heard of it. I
Mr. Vanderbilt will hear of it, though."
"How many firms besides the ineorpora- i
tors have expressed a desire to join you£"
"I should say at least 400. It is the firsr !
movement of the kind ever started in this j
country, but it is well started. We have not J
decided yet how many outsiders will be ad
mitted, but fair play will be shown them."
"What are your plans as regards telegraph
and express companies?"
"I am not at liberty to tell >ou any more
at present. Our plans will unfold themselves
as we go along. The freight pool is not all
we hare to fight against."
•'How soon do you expect to begin work?"
"We have some more details to arrange
yet. I think we shall be ready for the fall
A merchant discussing the delays caused
by distributing the freight among; the roads
in the pool, said: "I have shipped goods to
Chicago which should have been delivered
in five days, and they were on the road
twenty-one days. On whom are we to fix !
the responsibility for the delay! It is impos- :
sible to do it. If the goods are lost we can, I
with a great deal of trouble, trace them up |
and recover damages, but we can't get any j
compensation for delays."
So far as the complaint against the freight j
pool is concerned, Commissioner Fink said: I
"In a few cases we have been told of goods I
delayed by sending them over other roads than •
the shippers intended. But under the contract
we have a right to send freight marked for a
particular road over any other road in the
pool when it shall be considered necessary, i
This is always specified in the bills of hiding.
Of course we are responsible for any delay
or pecuniary loss incurred thereby. I think,
however, that fully 90 per cent, of the
freight shipped on our roads goes over the
lines for which it is marked. In some cases I
