The committee of the city council
on First avenue track rights met last
evening with the mayor and eity at

and Col. Henry Curtis were in at

road, and Fred Uass and Capt. J. M.
Beardsley from the property holders.
The Burlington would have been rep.

understanding which obtained that
it was to be purely a meeting of the
committee. Col. Curtis and Mr.
Sudlow spoke in behalf of the Peo

with reference to the city's position,
which, while aiming to have the
city's authority vindicated was not
seeking to persecute the railroads or
to entail burdensome requirements
with reference to them. Mr. Hass
spoke for the property holders, hold,
ing that step by step the roads had
extended their track privileges and
that now there was a net work of
tracks where there were vested
rights for but a few. He had no ob.
jection to the tracks being there for
the use of any number of trains, but
opposed the switching and storage of
cars and the nuisance attending the
City Attorney Haas also spoke, and
eventually the committee decided to
recommend to the council an open
meeting when all sides will be heard
and an effort made for a mutual ad
justment of the situation.

and perhaps no more unique com
bination bas ever arisen man tne two
brothers. Bob. and Alf. Both have
represented the same congressional
district; they were candidates against
each other in the famous cam'
paign known as the 'War of the
Roses' when Bob was elected and at
the end of his term re-elected. At
the close pf his term as governor.
Bob took to the lecture platform and
immediately became the greatest
drawing card beiore the footlights.
When Alf Taylor quit politics the
happy thought occurred that they
might again, not as political oppon
ents, but as amusement makers stand
upon the same rostrum and together
portray the characteristics, the ro
mance and the love songs of the
American people. They have never
latiea to a raw crowded nouses. No
other lecturer or combination of lec
turers could have packed Pythian
opera house as it waa packed last
evening. Sam Jones, with all his
drawing power, would not have had
one-third of the audience. Talmage
possibly might have drawn two
thirds as many. Few, if any, of the
most popular theatrical stars could
have so tilled the house.
- "Bob seems the leader. He puts
Alf forward to blazon the way, to try
with what magic touch he may play
upon the hearts of the vast assembly.
For himself he gives no thought to
dignity. He is the mimic, clown,
fiddler, dancer, vocalist, humorist
and joker. His object is to make
people laugh, and while be does it
he seems careless ot the 'fact that it
is largely at the expense of an oppor.
tunity of displaying those grander
flights of which' he is capable. In
that lies his constant danger. The
orator does not grow necessarily
more sublime with time and age.
Nothing is more common than to find
them satisfying themselves with the
laughter and plaudits won by humor
and tricks of speech which after a
time become habitual."

Names of the Gaite theater in Paris
one night played a trick on Ronmain,
bis fellow actor, which created no little
amusement. In one of the scenes in the
third act of the "Charbonniere," Ron
main, after standing awhile in dnmb
despair with his hands to bis face, sud
denly rums toward the audience, dis
playing his pale, haggard feature. To
produce the degree of "pallidness" re
quired, Ronmain carried in his pockets
a quantity of white face powder, which
be robbed ca the palms of his hands
when the proper time had arrived.
Now, Numes had secretly romoved the
white powder and substituted a hand
ful of charcoal dust. You can imagine
the result. The spectators laughed till
they were blue in the face. Bat Ron
main swore vengeance dire vengeance
and some of these days we may ex
pect to bear of another "pleasant even
