-A Fair Kebel". rrv-ntei For the
ftlrat Tint at Harper s Theatre
Oner Ati r .
The first performance of "A Fair
Rebel" was presented at Harpei'a theatre
last evening before a well pleased audi
ence. As the title implies the drama re
lates to the civil war, the action taking
place in Southwestern Virginia just prior
to the close of the war. and while there
are many stirring and realistic scenes
tbe plot does not develop unreasonable
and unnatural traits in the hero ne, and
it is happily devoid of blood and thunder
nonsence unhappily so characteristic of
military plays. In the course of the play
Libby prison is shown, but an attempt to
picture its historical horrors is omitted
in good taste. Miss Fsdoj Gilette plays
the heroine. "Clairette Montieth." and as
the supporting company is cirefully se
lected, the beautiful scenic effects, the
quaint ccftumes of the ladies, tbe singing
of the soldiers' quartette, and the banjo
song make up a powerful play.
Philadelphia and Boston have always
been strong cities forJ. C. Btewart In
the "Fat Men's Club." but this year in
both he played to almost twice as much
money as any previous engagement, and
the weather was exiremely warm in the
former city. This illustrates more plain
ly than anything cou'.d that the company
and play are great in every sense of tbe
word, and in fact greater than at any
time in tbe history of its successful pop
ularity. On Wednesday and Thursday eve
nings of this week Stewart's famous
"Fat Men's Club" is to be presented at
the Burtis opera house at Daven port by
the same aggregation of big men who
originally produced the "Two John"
