What a Cfclr"" Thinks.
Charles Cum sin, the highly
educated and tirouguly Ainerl
cauized Chine lawyer, who has
been in Salem week in attendance
at circuit coft was approached
regarding hipinion of tho new
Chinese exclon act. He thinks
the act is jus'aud that his fellow
men should excluded. He ad
mits they fo a detriment rather
than a benlt to the country. Ho
thinks, hrVever, that tho same
rigid lawshould he enacted against
the Italics andi Swedes and other
classes opmigrants that are swarm
ing to ov' laud. He says the latter
are no ljbre desirable than the for
mer. ,Deslrablo emigration ho
wishesto see encouraged, but would
favor Jio stoppage of the ceaseless
swarft of pauper emigration of de
gradiU foreigners of all nationalities.
Dan Sally in Daddy Nolan.
Janiel Sully appeared at the opera
Ihuso in his new play, Daddy
Nlan. The play is a sequel to the
(prncr Grocery. For an Irish
roinedy Daddy Nolan is unusually
clever, and tho title role, as present
ed by Mr. Sully, is a superior piece
of acting of the.kind. Daddy Nolan
is a deUghtd .mixture of humor and
pathoaaudwinathehearts of tho au
dience without ahyvapparent effort.
It is a' characterization, that must be
seen to be" appreciated.. The quar
tette singing In the.last act deserves
the warmest praise. It was far
superior to most quartette singing.
The elaborate realistic setting of tho
stage is a feature of the performance.

Fulton ascended tho rostrum and
