The Garrow Optra I'smptsy la "Er-
siale" Th Faaeraaat Minstrels
Tal(1it-a,A Boyal Pass."
The Garrow Opera company gave an
enjoyable presentatioofcf the comic opera.
"Erminie," at Harper's theatre last eve
ning. Mr. uirrow lias bud the good
fortune to secure a number of excellent
leading people. Miss Liura Clements
sings sweetly and made a creditable
'Erminie." Miss Lillian Strain was
bright and graceful a8"Javatte." Charles
H. Drew, the popular comedian, of
course, captured the hnuse aaVCadeaux,"
his "What the Dickey Birds Say," win
niog repeated encore. John E. Brand,
as "Ravennes." was clever. The chorus
was voluminous, but artistically speak
ing, seemed a little new to the business.
Were one disposed to be hypercritical,
fault might be found with
this part of the presentation. Never
theless the solos were strong.Jand the en
tertainment on the whole gave satisfac
The Emerson minstrels, which appear
at Harper's theatre to:s evening, is un
questionably one of the finest, minstrel
organizations ever put on the road. The
name of Billy Emerson itself, coupled
with that of Haverly, who has no equal
as a manager, will draw immensely. At
St Louis for one week the people packed
the Olympic theatre and at Chicago hun
dreds were turned away n:ghlly. Mr.
Haverly conducts every performance
himself. In addition to the only Emerson
the company includes the world's great-
est ventriloquest, Harry Kennedy, the
man who, standing n the opposite side
of the street, made a china dog in the
foyer of a London theatre bark eo loudly
that an over zealous policeman broke
the ornament into a thousand frag
ments because it wouldn't "move
on"; the coming funny man of the
age, Jerry Hart; the peerless butlesquer,
Harry Constantine and those wonderful
silent grotefq'ie elastiques famous all
over the world, Griffin and Marks. Other
attractions are the greatest dancing octette
in America, among them Nestor and Nes
tor, and Crawford and Crawford and
those noted unapproachable artists the
origins! Hsrding and little Ah Sid whose
Fun in a Wash House" has made thous
ands laugh. There was a five minute
pause for laughter to subside on their
opening at Chicago before they came on
"Drop a Penny in the slot and Get a
Clean Shirt." It is seldom if ever before
that a minstrel company furnished an
octette of such we'd known celebrites,
Thatcher, Hibbert, Davis, Eule, Evans,
Taylor, Reynolds and Yodler Denton, but
they are down on the bills and will make
Harpei's theatre resound with sweet songs
tonight, refreshing again indellibly in the
minds of our people the names of the
preceptors in true minstrelsy. Billy Emer
son and J. H. Haverly.
"A KOTAL PASS."
The best reports reach us concerning
George C. Staley, the German dialect
comedian, and his play, "A Royal Pass,"
which appears at Harpe.'s theatre tomor-
rom night. Mr. Staley is said to be the
equal of any of our best comedians. He
is at home in pathos as well as in comedy
and his role is arranged to give him full
scope for bis varied talents. Mr. Staley
is also one of our best lullaby singers and
yodlers, his yodling being of a different
style from Emmet's or any of the German
character exponents. Some of his songs
are becoming great favorites, notably the
ones entitltd -My Heart's Delight" and
"Little Rogue's Asleep." The play. "A
Royal Pass," is well spoken of.- It is said
to be both interesting and amusing. The
personages of the play are Swiss and
Russian. All the parts are correctly and
beautifully costumed and interpreted by
a cast of special excellence. Mr. Stale) '
manager, Harry Doel Parker, guarantees
a most enjoyable performance, strictly
first-class in every particular.
