Shakespearean drama will reign at
the Metropolitan opera house this
week — an announcement which many
theatergoers in St. Paul will heartily
welcome. Legitimate classic plays,
when interpreted by capable and ap-

OTIS SKINNER AS HAMLET,
preciatlve players, always meet with
substantial Indorsement In this city.
There Is reason to believe that the en
gagement of Otis Skinner and his com
pany In a Shakespearean repertoire
will fulfill the expectations of those
who look forward to an adequate pres
entation of the plays announced. Mr.
Skinner is no stranger here. St. Paul
audiences recognize in him an earnest,
Intelligent, virile young actor, of ex
ceptional ability and varied experience.
This latter qualification, without which
the greatest genius Is crippled, Mr.
Skinner possesses to an extensive de
gree, his stage career including val
uable experience in farce and light
comedy, Shakespearean and modern,
under the exacting direction of Augus
ts Daly, and ranging therefPßm to the
domain of tragedy and romantic
drama under the supervision of the
scholarly Lawrence Barrett. But with
all his experience, which Is not by
any means related here, Mr. Skinner is
still a young man to have attained the
position now generally accorded to
him as an exponent of the drama In
its highest form. His work thus far
is to be warmly commended, not only
for its actual merit, but for its unmis
takable revelation of the actor's ambi
tion to improve and perfect it.
Since Mr. Skinner's last visit to St.
Paul, he has materially extended his
repertoire. Upon that occasion Shy
lock was the only creation of the great
dramatist presented here by Mr. Skin
ner. His impersonation of the re
vengeful Jew was vigorous and most
promising at that time. During the
past year or more, Mr. Skinner has
added Hamlet, Romeo, Richard 111. and
Petruchio to his Shakespearean reper
toire, and also plays Claude Mel
notte in Bulwer's "Lady of Lyons."
Such an increase in an actor's list of
characters means an endless amount
of work and perseverance. How suc
cessful that work has been, Mr. Skin
ner will demonstrate this week. Ac-

cordlng to the views of the best critics

ceptionally attractive and Interesting.

One of the new theatrical events of
the present season in New Tork that
is looked forward to with exceptional
irterest Is the revival of the popular
farce comedy, "A Parlor Match," with
Bill Hoey arid Manager Charles E.
Evans in their famous old roles "Old
Hoss" and "I. McCorker." Hoey has
been training for this momentous oc
casion in his career all summer, and
has raised a growth of "Old Hoss"
whiskers that are a delight to the eye
of every one but barbers. He never
was in better condition, and his world
wide circle of friends are already pre
paring to give him a great reception.
Manager Evans' return to the stage is
especially noteworthy on account of the
distinction and popularity he has
achieved as one of the shrewdest and
most enterprising of metropolitan man
agers. The combination of business
ability and cleverness as a comedian
is a rare one, and his appearance in
this unique double capacity merits all
the interest It has excited. Another
welcome figure in the revival will be
that of Minnie French as "Innocent
Kid." Hoey has a new song called
"The Diamond King," for which as
great a degree of success is anticipated
as he obtained with the famous song,
"The Man Who Broke the Bank at

Francis Wilson's new comic opera,

former productions in Its elaborate
ness, elegance of appointments, rich
ness of costuming and the pictorial
beauty of its settings.

Tim Murphy in "Sir Henry Hypno
tized" has made a big hit at the
Standard theater. It consists of an
exceedingly clever imitation of Sir
Henry Irving as Mathias in "The
Bells," in costume, and imitations of
John T. Raymond, Joseph Jefferson,
Stuart Robson, Lawrence Barrett and
other distinguished American actors
He sprung a sensation on the audience
on the opening night, by presenting a
very striking imitation of Bryan, the
Democratic presidential candidate, !n
his famous Chicago speech, and of
McKinley. No advance announcements

After a week of melodrama farce
comedy will be a welcome change in
the amusement menu of the Grand
opera house. Commencing with a per
formance tonight at 8:15, "Town Top
icfc," a new comedy attraction, Will
open a week's engagement, introduc
ing the Broadway comedians.
Farce comedy, when of a good qual
ity, has never lacked appreciation .it
the hands of local theater-goers, and
this attraction comes heralded as pro
viding some distinctly new features in
the farce comedy line. The skit is in
three acts, and does not boast of any
great strength of plot, but is said to
be sufficiently connected to present, in
an agreeable manner, a host of funny
incidents and climaxes. The desire
of the author was to provide two and
one-half hours of merriment. The suc
cess of a skit depends upon the char
acter of its specialties, and in this in
stance several new and clever turns
The cast includes John Queen In the
role of Cinch, a gentleman with race
track ideas. Mr. Queen is 'veil known
in the profession as an admirable Im
personator of negro character parts.
He has served a veteran's experience
in the field, and has enjoyed success
ful engagements with Haverly, Prim
rose and West and other minstrel or
ganizations. In the role of Cinch in
"Town Topics" he is said to be at
his best. William H. Mack, another
well-known comedian, will appear in
the role of Willie Paye, an individual
with champagne ideas on a beer in
come. Mr. Mack has considerable
prestige as a fun-maker. William Kel

"The Great Northwest," a native
play by native authors. Herbert Hall
Winslow and Will R. Wilson, had its
first hearing in New York last Monday
night. It is in five acts, and is noth
ing if not sensational. Two of its
scenes suggest recollections of Henry
Arthur Jones and Belasco. In one the
heroine plays a game of poker, the
stake being her lover's life, and in the
other, to summon help, this same
young woman is sent swirling around
in mid air at the end of one of the
arms of a huge windmill. Another
situation calls for a prairie fire.
The persecuted hero is impersonated
by W. S. Hart, who has played leading
roles with Modjeska and Rhea; the
persistent villain by John B. Kellard,
always forceful and artistic; the
heroine by Frances Drake; the adven
turess by Maud Hosford, and Nubbins,
a comedy role, by Minnie Dupree.

mechanical effects is new and elab

Skinner is the celebrated actress, Miss
Rose Coghlan. During her engage

David Belasco has been an exceed
ingly preoccupied individual for the
past few weeks. The task of rehears
ing and directing the production of
W. A. Brady's "Under the Polar Star"
has been a great one, and the brilliant
dramatist has been living more or less
in the clouds or at the North Pole. A
few days ago he had occasion to go
to the telegraph office at Thirtieth
street and Broadway. He wrote on
Beatrice Norman and Nellie Sennett.
several telegraph blanks before he fin
ished a message to suit him. He hand
ed the clerk a $20 bill and got $19 In
change. As he went out he picked up
the blanks on which he had scribbled
and crumpled them in his hands to
gether with his change. As he crossed
the street, talking to a .friend, he ab
sentmindedly began tearing the paper
into very small bits. By the time he
reached the other side he had $19
worth of paper shreds. After careful
ly picking out the green bits from the
yellow paper he sent it to the secretary
of the treasury at Washington with
the request for new bills.

A boy, a mere stripling, has given
New Yorkers something to gape and
wonder at. He is one of the younger
members of the Flying Jordan family,
whose daring trapeze act is drawing
to Koster & Bial's great crowds who
like athletic dash, grace and excite
ment. The boy stands on the bar of a
small trapeze, suspended just below
the roof of the immense auditorium.
His hands are free, and he is appar
ently without support. At a signal he
allows himself to drop. Everybody
expects him to fall to the net below.
Instead, he swings around like a pivot,
being carried up by the force of his
own momentum. He whirls round and
round, frontwards, backwards, side
ways. There Is no way of seeing how
his feet are connected with the cross
bar — for 4ie must be fastened some
where — and the audience, after recov
ering from Its first 3hock of
fright, puzzles itself as to how the
feat Is accomplished. Numerous sur
mises have been made, but no one has,
as yet, correctly guessed by what pe
culiar gravitating force the boy's body
is drawn up, as well as down, enabling
him to whirl in concentric circles.

Murray Carson and Louis N. Parker
are authors of the four-act play "Rose
mary," with which John Drew inaugu
rated his fifth season as a star at the
Empire theater t last Monday night.
Produced for the first time on any
stage at the Criterion, London, last
May, Mr. Charles Wyndham, as Sir
Jasper Thorndyke, made one of the
greatest artistic successes of his long
and honorable histrionic career. The
strength of "Rosemary," It is declared.
Is neither in its plot nor in its situa
tions, but in the sweetness and purity
of its sentiment, and the grace and
poetical charm of its treatment. Its
period Is early Victorian, with Its
quaint and picturesque costumes and
its somewhat formal manners.
Dorothy Cruickshank and William
TVestwood, an ensign in the service of
the East Indian company, attempt an
elopement. The postchaise breaks
down In Sir Jasper's estate, at which
place in pursuit also arrive the parents
of the young woman. All are Invited
to Bpend the night with Sir Jasper,
who soon finds htmself falling in love
with Dorothy. But the baronet acts
honorably, crushes his passions, and
the young people are allowed to mar
ry. The last act is a sort of epilogue.
It is fifty yean Jater, and Sir Jasper
is now a nonoganarian, living over the
tender memories of' the past.
Mr. Drew and his company are ac
credited with signal success.

"Charley's Aunt," the famous comedy
success, will be s«en here fpllowing
the engagement of "Town Topics" at

near the Antartlc xjircle, and has al

successful peregrinations. Europe's
capitals have applauded it.and the prin
cipal cities of America are still sound
fng its praises. It is now in its third
year in IxMjdon, Paris laughed
over it, Berlin crowded its
largest houses, - even St. Petersburg
ventured out of doors for it, and the
Swedes and Norwegians have applaud
ed it. The story is very simple, but
the plot is involved. Brandon Thomas,
the author, has succeeded in starting
twelve single souls with six single
thoughts for one purpose, to- wit: Matri

"At Gay Coney Island" is the signifi

The elaborate production which
Charles Hoyt's most artistic creation,
"A Midnight Bell" is reported to have
received, is winning the good opinion
and praise of both press and public, I
wherever the comedy has appeared thils
season. The cast is headed by that
amusing comedian Digby Bell, and his
wife, Laura Joyce-Bell, the well known
contralto. The scenery of the produc-
Keller and Mack,
tion was designed and painted by the
celebrated artist Arthur Voegtlin. The
music, incidental and vocal, was es
pecially arranged by Victor Herbert, the
conductor of Gilmore's band, and com

Police Get Another Warant for
Peter Murphy, the hotel runner, who
has recently been given considerable
notoriety owing to having Patrolman
John M. Ahem arrested for assault
and battery, walked into the central
station at 5 o'clock yesterday after
noon and said he understood there was
a warrant out for his arrest. Murphy
was informed by Lieut. Boerner that
his understanding regarding the war
rant was correct and that the paper
was now in the hands of an officer.
Murphy said he did not care to be an
noyed by being arrested during busi
ness hours or after he had reached his
residence. None of the officers seemed
to know what the warrant was for,
but it was finally decided that Murphy
might put up $50 bail and be in court
Monday morning to answer to the

his place of business, on Sibley street,

to a clothing store on Seventh street

them, that a police officer was follow
