The regular meeting of the aldermen
was held hist evening. Applicalion
was pri'seuled asking permission lo
open a highway soullieaslerly from the
eliM of lSranch street across the land of
F. D. IScckley and C. 1). Carpenter, then
easlerly to lirooklyn street. Referred
to the si reel commissioners.
L. J. Roister made applicalion to con
nect the properly known us the Mary
i.oltlsimry properly with the sewer. It
was gr niii'il provided the city will put
a man hole in 11, e sewer near the prop
erly, which they will probably do.
C. E. Culler was given permission to
connect his Iioiim; on South Mam street
with the sewer.
A communication was read lrom Al
derman (iiles 15. Durkee, asking that
his resignation as alderman from the
fifth ward lie accepted. It was refused.
Mr. Durkee has been alderman from
this ward for a number of years, and
his reasons for resigning, it fs said, are
on aecouul of ilit! work of the city eon-
llicling wilh his own.
The following petitions were gianted :
To A. D. Morse, to erect a sloie-liouse
on West street; (ieorge Much, lo re
shingle house on the corner of Wash
ington and Richardson streets, and to
build niraddilion to his house; L. M.
Averill, to build an addition to his
house on Kei h siroel ; D. M. Miles, to
build a bay window to his house on
Summer street; L. K. Averill, to re
model his house on Washington slreet,
and to m:ike general repairs; ii J.
Slayton, lo build an ell to his house on
Quarry street; W. A. Royce, lo re
shi; gie his house on North Main street ;

Israel Wood asked for permit to
build a Ivo-.-tory veranda lo his hou-e,
and Sheplee & Jones to build an addi
tion on their block on North Main
street. Roth these applications were
rel'eri'od to the city engineer.
City Engineer Currier slated that he
had inspected the bridge on Rcrlin
street and considered it unsafe. A
number of complaints have been made
of late. The bridge is an old one built
of wood, and the cost of building a new
one would be about .100. Referred
to the street committee.
Assessor Charles A. Smith asked that
a plot be made of the lease laud in the
city. It was granted.
A resolution was passed instructing
Chief Engineer l'helps to hire men tem
porarily in place of the lirenieu who
have enlisted. Il is said lliiil nearly L'O
lireincii have enlisted.
The bid of William Ridell for tearing
down (he walls of the old city building
was rejected, as he refused to sign the
contract as it was written by the mayor.
I'lie superintendent of sli'eels was in
structed lo do the work as soon as pos
C. L. & R. S. Currier were given
permission to build a fence and ooeiipx
one-half of the sidewalk m trout ol their
properly while the block is under con
struction. A Hiivet was ordered lo be laid out
from Eastern avenue as far as Hall

INSIDE THE THEATER.
Custom)! Ht till! Cernifill riayn I'ulike TIkiho
of A tiitTU'iin Atltlii'lloi'N,
The iscdieuccM that (rather at the Ger
man thnater in Irving place are unlike
thosu seen at any other playhouse iu
town. Daring tbu reeeht engagement of
Agnes it'ei ma tlicro, the nntlieuces were
exceptionally largo and offered a strik
ing illustration of the difference be
tween tlirm and tbo gatherings iu tho
theaters tl-jvoterl to English plays. The
quiet of ihe spectators is tbo first no
ticeable, difference. Nobody speaks
even quietly to his neighbor without
leaning over so rloscly to him that tho
sound con hi not possibly tlisturb any
body rise, Even then tho whisperer is
likely to bo reminded by a rebuke from
iu front or behind. The slightest uoiso
interrupts tbo cnursa of the spectators'
enjoyment and that is something which
.will not Le tolerated by the serious play
goers of the German theater. The only
talking they propose to hear is that of
the actors on tbo stago. Applause very
rarely comes until tho close of the act.
Then, if tho performance bo worthy, the
acknowledgment is unrestrainedly cor
dial. Laughter at tho funny points of a
farce is never repressed. That indul
gence is unrestrained. In comic opera
tho applause is quitn as common as it
is at the other theaters, and tho audi
ences like encores quite as much as those
who hear them in English.
It is in tho quiet moments of a seri
ous play, however, especially when the
sePne leads to an exciting climax, that
tho mood of the audience is most char
acteristic. Then from tho orchestra
scats to tbo crowded gallery the specta
tors arc intensely absorbed in every
movement and every word of tho actors.
When tho climax has come and this
tensifu is released, it can he immedi
ately tilt, although there is no applause
or any audible outbreak. The feeling
runs through tho house nnd the emo
tions aro relaxed. Lnt tho customary
relief is not expressed us it usually is iu
other theaters by applauso, That must
wait until the curtain falls.
Like all German theaters tbo world
over, the Irving Place is dreadfully
overheated. Tresh air is all very well
when one sits im i'reien, but indoors ev
erything must bo appropriately stuffy
and hot. So the German theater in New
York frequently becomes distressingly
warm. Lut tho regular audiences do not
appear to object to it. Many of the men
leave tho theater between tho acts ami
smoke in tho lobby, more, possibly, than
would lu.mUly be found in an Amurieau
audit net.. Sr-oiue of the women occasion
ally rtt.iro to the lobby, but tho number
of I hone who follow tho example of tho
menissme.il. Possibly if tho theater
had a foy. r as largo as those in Europe
tho audience would retire just as those
iu Ci rniany do. . Rut that custom has
never become popular here, and there is
the added attraction of an orchestra to
keep the audience seated between tho
acts. Very few of tho continental thea
ters have orchestras.
The cloakroom system exists to a
greater exMit in the German theater
than it does at any other place excepting
tho Metropolitan. Cloaks and hats firo
deposited at the gtirilerobu with regu
larity, and tho men as well as the wom
en lira patrons of this branch of the
theater. The rule about hats is a qual
ified ono. The management asks only
thr.t tho?'0 hats which interfere with tho
view cl' pi vs-iiii.-i behind shall ho remov
ed. Others aro not forbidden. Few aro
worn, bowt vcr, and it is interesting to
see tho size i f those that aro retained.
Ubty n ay not tie triumphs of millinery,
l.iitthty show that women sometimes
think of oihir things than beauty or
fashion w hen they get a hat that they
think, in fact, of tho persons who may
si t in the row behind them at tho thea
ter. New York Sun.
