..The Bostonians Open in " Fati-
uilza" at the Baldwin.
Hallen and Hart— The Alcsrar's "Sosedale."
Camilla Urso's Farewell -A Change.
Opera at the Orpheum— Notes.
tThe Baldwin's auditorium was well filled
to welcome the favorite Bostonians. First
nighters were out in force, and besides
- these faithful patrons of the theater there
were many persons whose faces are not
usually seen on sach occasions, and, in
fact, who are not habitual attendants at
public amusements. This fact would seem
to show that the company will have a
hitherto reserved force in our community
from which to draw support during the
season. There was but one fault to find
With the arrangements last evening—
in raising the curtain. Had it not been lor
this, the reception of the singers would
no doubt have been much more hearty
than that which greeted them on their en
"* ' trance. As it was, Miss Jessie Bartlett
. Davis mid Miss Juliette Cordon had a grati
vos suite's "fatixitza"— .
From the time jthat Mathilde Cottrelly
*_ first sang the Princess at the old Call
'" fornla— is pretty well • known to our
public. It is spectacular in many of its
scenic features, and the score is full of
; pretty and catching music, which has long
contributed to the pleasure of amateur
• musical circles. "The Bostonians" have
got the opera, in all its different phases,
nicely, in hand. Miss Jennie Bartlett
Davis (Vladimir) and Miss Juliette Corden
are evidently the favorites. In her opening
Lost is the dream that bound me
In love's delight [ul thrall,
. the strong, yet suave and true, contralto
voice of the lady first named was beard to
great advantage, as was also the coaxing
song to General KautchukofT. Indeed, she
wars at her best in all her numbers, while
her acting was arch and piquant Miss
rdeii brought the house down with her
' descriptive sleigh song, "Oh, a sleigh-ride
is' delightful," and in the duet with Vladi
mir in the second act. Bulb Indies were lib
erally applauded and warmly encored. Mr.
Etiwin W. Huff is well assigned as Julian
Hardy, war correspondent of the New York
Herald, in the field to watch the move
ments of the Turks and Bussians. His pat
ter song, "A Beporter, I suppose," was
clearly and glibly given, and with appro
priate action. Mr. Eugene Cowles was a
" - conspicuous figure as the Count, and his
first aria, "Dynamite, Bombs and Cannon,"
sung with knout accompaniment, would
have been more effective if the snapper had
not come off his instrument of tor
ture just where he sings "Ah, yes,
I lash them," and there was no
snap in it thereafter. Mr. U. C. Barnabee
had his innings in the second act as Izzet
Pacha, the lord of a harem full of beauti
ful odalisques. He came out strongly in
the air, "When Sick Men Are Failing."
The vocal powers of this company are quite
up to the standard of our previous experi
. ence of them, and familiarity, due to long
"training, gives greater precision as well as
verve to tlie action; consequently the per
formance of each opera in their reper
tory cannot fail to be enjoyable.
.In. the concerted numbers — the duets,
trios, quartets and choruses, for ex
ample, there were the desiderata of prompt
. attack, light and shade, with a full volume
of sound. The young ladies who compose
the chorus force are blessed with youth and
beauty of face and form, and while the
music is pleasant to the ear, the ensembles
they make are most agreeable to the eye.
Hr. George B. Frothingham, as Sergeant
Steippan, contributed a comic element that
was vastly amusing. There was no notice
. Abie weakness in the entire distribution.
The scenery, which tlie company brought
with them, is well painted and of great
pictorial merit. For this evening Ambroise
Thomas' "Pygmalion aud Galatea" is an
■ nounced. The libretto, founded on W. S.
Gilbert's comedy, is written by Mr. Oscar
. ' THE FIRST NIGHTERS.

'-' There were comparatively few evening
toilets in the crowded auditorium, the ma

ll alien and Hart.
At the Bush-street Theater last evening
Hallen and Hart, the popular comedian?,
presented H. Grsttan Donnelly's musical
farce-comedy entitled "Later On" to a
crowded house. The play Is not new to us,
but it has been improved in some respects
- since its previous representation in this city.
At most "Later On" is only a sketch
into which Hallen and Hart introduce
seme clever, specialties and rather moth
. eaten gags. The latter, however, seemed
to be as much relished by the audience as
if liny had never been beard before. The
viral contributions also met with much
favor and they had to respond to Innumer- ,
able encores. The members of the com- .
l.ai.y are equal to the demands made upon ■
, . their talents. Tbe ladles aro pretty and ;
- otherwise attractive looking, and carry
themselves with ease and grace. The ap
.-" plause was very liberal, and there is every
prospect of a successful season.
_ "Rosedale" at the Alcazar.
"The army, was out" at the Alcazar last
night, and the body of the house before the
soldiers were needed on the stage looked
like a G. A. R. encampment. "Bosedale,"
.produced by the Grisinjr-Davies Company,
"_"- was the cause of the military being on hand
-: to _ take pari Jln the gypsy encampment
scene. This familiar old drama was fairly
well . played. • Mr. _ Grisaier carried Eliot

Horrible Fate of Unfortunate
Miss Cable Exposes Seme Repulsive Phases of
Mongolian Wickedness— Grave Charges
Against the Police.
Miss Efuma B. Cable, who is well known
for her missionary labors in Chinatown,
read a paper at the seventeenth annual
meeting of the Occidental Branch of the
Women's Foreign Missionary Society of
the Presbyterian Church last Thursday
at Santa Clara. In the course of her read
ing she said:
"When 1 mention the fact that during
the past year I have visited and taught in
132 families you will readily see how im
possible it is for one per -.on to devote to each
all the time that could be usefully employed.
In these families we frequently find three
and four wives under the same roof, the
practice of polygamy being the rule with
such of the Chinese as think they can af
ford it. In most instances the women are
bought in this country in what may aptly
be called the open slave market, for there
Is no disguise about it at all. The price of
each human chattel varies from $1000 to
$3000. Their first cost is, however, pretty
much their last. They are thereafter kept
busy sewing garments for the stores, and
' are expected to work from twelve to sixteen
hours every day, Sundays included. And
this is as true of the merchants' wives as of
the poorer class.
"Our entire number of girls now being
visited and taught is 150, ranging in years
from 3 to 12. Of this number we have
taught fifty-eight regularly and systemat
ically, and the superior grasp of mind and
capacity for development displayed by
many are at on< c to us a pleasure and an
incentive to effort on their oehalf. In these
families we have taught seven women, the
number being necessarily small, because,
unless they are willing and auxious to co
operate, it is Impossible to devote time to
them. In many instances, however, the
mothers acquire more or less of knowledge
through the personal interest they take in
their children's studies.
"IT IS REPELLING !"
"We daily encounter little girls in the
alleys and dens of vice, and could we induce
the "proper authorities to exercise their
power we would not be compelled, as now,
to see tbe class of little girls we taught in
Bartlett alley, already in possession of own
ers of dens of shame at the tender age of
13 and 14. This is the most hideous phase
of life which we are forced to face in Chi
natown. It is repelling to the last degree.
Is it not monstrous that the educational
work I early did in Bartlett alley should be
made to add to the accomplishments, and,
therefore, to the money value, of these hu
man adornments of dens of sin! I implore
the assistance of all good people in demand
ing the enforcement of the laws of the land
to the end that this direst form of human
slavery the mind can imagine may be abol
ished, and a terrible blight upon the fair
fame of our beautiful State may be blotted
"Miss Carrie MacFariand and I were en
abled to rescue one of these girls from the
den in which she had so long been confined,
and for some four months it was necessary
to keep her in hiding in my home, as a large
reward was offered for her capture, and the
highbinders were threatening to murder
anybody found harboring her. For a time
these wretches bad the audacity to place
my home under surveillance, and in this
free country to actually threaten it with
peril. Her whereabouts was finally traced
through a white hack.nan accepting $100 as
a bribe to tell whither he had driven her.
The highbinders thereupon met and re
solved in the most formal way possible to
exact the death penalty from any Chinese '
found extending her aid and comfort, and
this resolution was avowed throughout the
THE CHINESE DOLLAR.
"But you ask: 'Where was the law and
its officers all this time?' Good, innocent
folks, the Chinaman's dollar is mightier
than the American Constitution with San
Francisco's policemen and politicians! It
is one of the most lamentable facts in con
nection with this girl's experience that a
moiety of her earnings was paid each week
to on Influential policeman. In point of
fact, the protector provided her by law was
in part her enslaver and owner. She, of
whom all this is true, is yet only 18 years
of age. She is attractive in appearance, of
superior mind, marked individuality and of
refined manners, which "■• It:-- is . diffi
cult to tell bow she _ acquired. 1
Born in China, her - father was i a
German ; ■..-a captain and her mother ; a
Chinese woman. The death of i the father
left the family in straitened circumstances,
and a slave-buyer from San Francisco ap
pearing, the mother was induced to part
with the child, then only 14 years old, upon
the representation that a Chinese merchant,
whose photograph was exhibited, would
marry her upon arrival here. She was in
stead sold for $2500 and placed in „ the den
from which I had the good fortune to rescue
her. Let me impress upon you, however,
that she is the representative of a class la
this Christian land still tv enforced and
sinful slavery, whose condition; American
civilization cannot afford to tolerate."

FLOODING THE TOWN.
Thirty-three Holders Arrive From
Eighteen of Th;_n Captured by the Strikers.
A Union-Burster Here— Another Gang
Will Soon Start.
At daylight yesterday morning the long
expected cang of Eastern molders left the
cars at Oakland and fell into the extended ,
arms of the strikers and the agents of the
. There was a lively tussle for the new
comers. President .Valentine's men gath
ered around them, and in spite of a large
force ot special policemen, succeeded in
capturing several. They would without
doubt have secured a majority of the gang
there and then, had not the police driven
Henry T. Scott of the Union Iron and IL
Moore of the Risdon works were present,
and told the men if they were not willing
to work they were not compelled to do so.
The strikers' pickets told the non-unionists
that if they went to work in the factories
controlled by the association they would be
cooped up like cattle and at the end of the
trouble would be compelled to quit the city.
After much confusion, in which it is said
fireardfe were flourished by the special
officers, the gang was divided, one
part going to the ferry with the
strikers, and the other to the tugs
which the manufacturers had in readi
ness for them. Of the latter, eieht were
taken to the Union Works at the Potrero,
two to the City Iron Works at North
Beach, four to the Bisdon Works, and five
to the Fulton Foundry. This left
fourteen men with the strikers, -who
speedily added to their acquisitions
the four men who had been secured
by the Bisdon Works. These were taken
to the foundry and shown the quarters
which the proprietors had prepared for
them. They partook of a substantial break
fast with an alacrity that told how their
trip across the bay had whetted their appe
tites. Then they appeared In the presence
of .Manager Moore. .-...•
"We want to go out and have a look at
the city," said the leader. "We've been
cooped up in the cars so long that we can't
work until we've stretched our legs."
An angry glare suffused the face of the
manager, aDd his eyes, heavy for want of
sleep, grew brighter with wrath.
THEY GET OCT.
"If you don't want to work get out of
here, nnd get out at once."
Whereupon the men girded up their loins
and proceeded to git. They were met at the
door by the pickets of the union and es
corted to the headquarters, where a jubilee
was held over their arrival.
One of these men who had left the bunk
and board provided for him at the Bisdon
gave an account of his engagement at Phila
delphia, and of his trip to the Coast.
He said his name was William Nary and
that his far-distant home was in a suburb
of the " City of Brotherly Love."
"I was engaged," lie continued, "by
Ames & Pitchford, ageuts of the Union
"Didn't you know that there was a strike
hero." asked a reporter for The Call.
"Didn't know anything of the kind. I
knew there had been a strike here, but I
had been told it was all over."
"Who told you that?"
"Well, i read it in an evening paper. I
do not know whether it was inserted as an
advertisement or as a communication.
Then the ageuts told me that there was no
strike here, hut that there bad been one,
and on account of it many molders had
gone away from the city, so that when the
trouble was settled there was a scarcity of
men. We were also told that a new foun
dry hail just been built in San Francisco,
and that molders were wanted for it. We
were offered from S3 to S3 50 per day, and
were told that we would be expected to
sleep at the works."
TOLD THEM WAS NO STKIIiE.
"Were you accustomed to sleeping in the
Philadelphia foundry in which you were
employed before you came here?
• Well, no; but we were sure there was no
strike here, and no one asked us whether
we were union men or not."
" We left Philadelphia in charge of a
man named Gage on Monday evening one
week ago. We wero not given sufficient
food on our journey and had to get along
the best way we could. My supper at Cin
cinnati was composed of half a bottle of
beer, an egg aud a sandwich.
" When we left Philadelphia there were
thirty-seven of us, but when we were pass
ing through Cincinnati some one called us
'scabs,' and two of our party left the train.
" When we reached .New Orleans some
of our number wanted to get off the train,
but Gage flourished a revolver before them
and they decided to wait for an opportunity
to leave the cars unseen. Such "an oppor
tunity occurred when we were near San
Antonio, and there two more of our num
ber disappeared. At Los Angeles we
learned fur the first time that the strike of
the San Francis o molders had not been
settled. Soino one passed the following

INSIDE INFOIiMATIO-S. '
The date of the above letter indicates that
the strikers knew when the men from Phila
delphia set out for the Coast.
Members of the Manufacturers' Associa
tion believe that the union had emissaries
among the men who were brought out and
it is positively asserted that two spies wore
caught in one of the tugs which conveyed
the Easterners to the city.
The Manufacturers' Association held a
prolonged conference at the Merchants'
Lxchang* yesterday afternoon, but, as
usual, refused to divulge the object of tho
meeting or any of the business transacted.
The manufacturers profess to be well
pleased with the result of their agent's
labors iv the East and assert that the back
bone of the strike is broken.
It is their intention, so says Irving M.
.Scott, to bring on another gang of men at
an enrly date, all of whom will bo tested as
to their ability to mold before they are
The manufacturers deny that their agents
deceived the men, and declare that every
man who is employed in the East is told
that there is a strike here, and is obliged to
sign a statement that he is not a member of
the union. _
Sixteen special ' policemen guarded the
Fulton Works all day and night. They not
only patrolled the street and guarded the
entrances, but kept watch upon the roof of
the building. y.

of the Union Iron Works were put to work

The men _ on guard at the Fulton shop
stated that one of I their number had been
assaulted without cause by an officious
special officer. They deprecate any attempt
to incite violence, as they claim that the
strike has been carried on by them iv a
strictly lawful manner.

association have been given - board and
lodging and will probably be sent _ back to

Fourth Annual Display of the
A Handsome Collection of One Thousand Pic
The fourth annual exhibition of the Pa
cific Coast Amateur Photographers' Asso
ciation opened last evening in the rooms of
the ban Francisco Art Association, 430 Pine
street, under Its auspices, which were de
cidedly flattering and encouraging to the
members, who : have taken such pains to
make this display of their work with the
camera superior to all preceding exhibi
In order to accomplish this a score of the
most enthusiastic members have worked
indefatiguably for days preparing for it.
The result of their labors is a collection of
handsome photographs of varied subjects
such as have never been shown here before.
The showing is especially good as regards
the variety of processes and coloring.
There are nearly a thousand photographs
in the collection, which is arranged around
the walls of the large exhibition-room of
the association, and the work of almost
every member of the society is represented
by a large number of sample efforts. Among
them are few indeed which could be
equalled by the most skilled professional in
AUTISTIC JUDGMENT DISPLAYED.
Not only is the mechanical work excel
lent, but the subjects selected and the char
acter poses betray the artist's eye and judg
ment. Another marked feature of the work
of members of the association, which is at
once apparent to the visitor, is the care
which is taken in mounting the photo
graphs. Some are upon heavy cardboard,
others in modest little frames and covered
with glass, and others are set in a network
of fantastic yet artistic designs.
It is difficult to Cud a blemish anywhere.
The majority of the views are out-door sub
jects, landscapes and marine views. Among
such a collection it is rather difficult to se
lect a few which are superior to the others.
As one passes around the room the unifor
mity of merit becomes more and more im
piessed upon one's mind.
Photographs of landscapes are well rep
resented by the work of George W. Dornin.
His chief picture, entitled "Along the
Highway," represents a flock of sheep
being driven along a road. The. cloud of
dust raised by the many hoofs comes out In
a natural way, and does not mar the scene
as one might suppose it would. Mr. Dor
nin also lias two pretty views of oxen draw
ing logs, besides several other very pretty
A VAI.H'.TY OF SUBJECTS.
Archibald J. Treat has a large collection
of artistic photographs upon a variety of
subjects. One, a "Scene in Ross Valley,"
showing a stream running through a
meadow, with cattle near by, is a gem
which has few equals in the exhibition.
In the collection of marine views ___. L.
Woods has several which are noteworthy.
His cloud effects in these are superb.
G. W. Bead exhibits some good work,
among which is one, a "Portrait of a
Child," of which he is very proud.
S. W. Burnham's scenes at and around -
Cayenne are novel and marvelously well
executed and handsomely mounted. One
is called "Native Curiosity," and repre
sents a young native glancing timidly up
through a large telescope, which is pointed*
toward the heavens. It is a scene which
actually occurred during Mr. liurnbam's
travels. Another shows the Lick Observa
tory in winter.
Some micrographs made from the micro
scope by oil illumination by £. W. Ruuyan
show good effects.
A series of pictures which are clear cut
and very interesting are Bequa's scenes in
Borne and the excavations at the ruins of
BY THE "LADY MEMBERS.
The lady members of the association are
not as well represented as they should be.
This is due to the fact that it is only re
cently that they have been admitted to the
organization, hence their labors have been
Miss Josephine M. Hyde has several good
samples of her work. One is "Good Morn
ing," showing a rooster giving his daylight
crow, and another represents two game
cocks glaring at each other preparatory to
combat. This is entitled "Come on, Mac
When the exhibition was opened in the
evening shortly after 7 o'clock the room
rapidly filled up with ladies and gentlemen.
A committee of the association was present
and spared no pains to make the visitors at
• After half an hour spent in viewing the
collection the visitors assembled in the lec
ture-room, where arrangements had been
made for a stereopticon exhibition of the
prominent photographs. The audience com
pletely filled the room. .
E. L. Woods, President of the association,
made a brief address of welcome. He gave
a short history of the association, and said
that during the past year the membership
had increased in a gratifying degree. Lady
members had also been admitted, which is a
move in the right direction. Progress in
photography had not been very marked
during the year. It had developed on the
old familiar lines.
VARIETIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS.
He then referred to the dangers of flask
powders, saying that some of them, unless
made of -pure magnesium, were liable to
deteriorate aud become explosive. When
the society was first organized the dry plato
was almost unknown in tbiscity. The pub
lic has since the organization been famil
iarized with many new varieties and kinds
of photographs which have never been
The first view given was that of the inte
rior of the association's rooms at fios Mer
chant street. The next was Dornin's
"Scene on the Highway." Then followed
some bull-fighting scenes in Guatemala, and
tropical views in Central America by Rob
inson. "Sunrise in the Tropics" was an
almost perfect piece of work. Next came
"Little Pilgrim," "Scene on the Bay
".View at- the .Presidio." "Chrysanthe
mums," scenes in Borne and Pompeii and a
hundred or more others, winding up with a
pretty good-night piece.
Beginning with to-day the exhibition will
be open every day until Saturday from 9
o clock in the morning to 4 in the afternoon
This evening it will be open and another
series of stereoptieon views will be given
with a lecture. It will be the last night ex

George W. Gregory, one of the youths
who stole $212 85 from the treasure-box of
Wells, Fargo & Co., on the ferry-boat Pied
mont, was surrendered by his bondsmen
yesterday afternoon, as they feared he
would depart for parts unknown. Gregory
was found In the corridor of . the New City
Hall and taken into custody. His bail was
raised from $3000 to $4000.

which we give special attention. It is also impos-

their veins. Reader, if yon have ever had a reason
to believe that a terrible poison has ' entered your
system, no matter what form it may have at first
developed, call at once and we will tell you If it is
still lurking in your system. It will cost you noth-
ing to be examined and may save you a great deal
of suffering and sorrow, maybe an outline y grave.
Only alfew months since a party called; he would
not take tbe advice offered at the Institute; be

Is In God's acre at Laurel Hill. Take warning by
his fate, and if you have reason to feel that the
poison may be in your system seek advice at once. .

incident to your delicate organizations and can

case may require; yon may rest assured of honor-
able nnd scientific treatment.
