Street-Car I'mmi'iicon Alnruipil
A ciaslfof breaking glass and the crackling
of wood this morn lug aroused the passengers
of car number 75 of the Washington it George
town Hallway from their feeling of security,
and caused a slampctle to tho forward part of
theenr. A colored uiau, dtlvlug a pair of
eplrltcd horkes. attached to a heavy carriage,
came rapidly don u Fftecntb street just as the
enruab passing that polut, and he appeired
unable to cheek his hori.es In time to prevent
the collulou. The windows were smashed.
and the woodwork of the cir somewhat de
molished. Fortunately there wero put fow
passengers, so there was no damago done by
Iljlng glass, though thero was considerable
excitement. The driver ot the carriage, after
extricating his team, drove off uuconcoruedly.

the boy was woisted, but the sympathy of tho

not odd that fuch should bo the case, for
Dempsoy's eouduct wus unworthy auy man

when the only thing tho boy could ilo was to

tlio Potomac, except tlioso conducted
tinder tho ntiMiices ot tlio club or tlioso
given by tho Y. A. A. O., lins caused
consldcrnhlo of n commotion ninong local
boating men. "Docs this mean tho end
of tho annual Potomac Itlvcr rcgaUns?"
Is tho question that has been generally
asked. An otllccr of tho Colnmblas, in
discusing that matter to-day, laid:
"Tho object of tlio resolution is to pro
vide for regattas in which only clubs thnt
atu upon good tcinis with tho Columbia
may participate. It n 111 lmvo tho effect
of doing away with tho annual Potomac
lliver regatta. Tho interest in this event
has Homowhat declined of late.
"Tho Annlostan's withdrew from tho
regattas, and, as you know, tho two ro
uitiinlng clubs hiivo been at loggerheads
with each other. It Is porfectly nppatcnt
to tho men of both clubs thnt wo cannot
agree, and the best thing to bo done un
der the circumstances is for tho two clubs
to keep away from each other; that Is as
far as racing events aro concerned, Tlio
Colunibias "take n.irt in a regatta whom
wo bear part of the expenses. Wo will
Invito such clubs to join us as wo may
3Ir. .John II. Uoylo of tho Potomac
Uont Club said:
"Tho Colunibias have a right to hold
an open jegutta of theii own, they pay
ing till expenses, and Its nobody's busl
ines to question Unit light. There res
olution Is rather odd and I cannot under
stand its meaning peifeclly, especially
w hero they say that where they hear a
nart of the expense the regatta must bo
held under their auspices, what becomes
of tho person or organization bearing tho
other purl is a conundrum. Tho i'oto
nine Hlvor logatta is nlixturo and will
ho held in 1SSII as usual whether tho
Colunibias lend their nssitanco to tho
oilier clubs or letnain outside.
Tho cup. Post, Star and Jlasou, will go

now in tho possession of the Pnssalcs of
Xewark, 2f. J,, the leading crow ot
America, while tho Muson is In tho
possession of the Columblns, who of
course will iclurn it at tlio piopcr time.
"This state of affairs would never have
occuned if the navy had been formed,
for which I have fought for during tho
last six years, but which petty jealousies
uave Kept down. '
If "what 3Ir. Doyle says roprehonts
tho feeling of thu Potomacs, and
It is fair to presume that It doos, as
ho has been onu of tho most promi
nent and faithful members of tho
club, tho red and while will bo tho
conservers of the annual regctta In tho
futttic. It is to be deplored that tho
navy to which reference is made cannot
be, 'ormed, It would harmonize local
jealousies and it would redound to tho
aquatic interests of the District.

terrible fromjlhe front, no doubt, but, nsl
said, I havo long cened to sharo In tho
general feeling of excitement. It Is not
n very lofty stago ambition, perhaps
tills jumping luto n tank of water overy
night but it commands a large salary.
That Is my chief motlvo in connection
with such a lolo."
Jllss Kdna Carey, tho pretty voting
woman who almost frightened tho au
diences out of their wits at AVlilto's
Theatro overy night last week by jump.
Ing into a big tank of water furnfahed
by tho "Dark Secret" Company, leaned
back in a lii.xurln 3 lounging chair hi tho
Cadillac parlors vesterdav afternoon ami
smiled fascinatingly'. The Idea Unit so
palpable a piece of stago effect could
leailyolarm nnybody scorned to sirauso
her exceedingly. It was nnoveiy-day
matlcr with her this taking a plunge
bath and tho novelty had long sinco
rr-tolvcd itself into history. And in her
elaborato black costume, Miss Carey
really looked as though actual peryl anil
herself wore strangers. With dfinclng
black eyes, a mischievous smilo and' a
slender and graceful form, she has llttlo
in common with the grim and awful
King of Terrors.
"Is not this dally Immersion injurious
to your health?" she wnsnsked.
"Oil, 1 don't know, really. I always
lose from ten to fifteen pounds of flesh
during tho season, but whether this fact
is due lo tlio water, or other can sea, I
cannot say. I havo to bo very careful of
my health, of course. Thore Is no placo
In the world for taking cold lllo tho
wini-s of n theater. A great many people
have an Idea that I uso breathing tubes
while under the wator, but I do nothing
of tho kind. I bellovo tho girl vtfio

sometimes remained under the water so
long that her audiences almost went into
hysterics. "Women used to shriek out
and faint away, and all that sort of Uilng,
you know. Thnt wouldn't do at all.
Ve havo to bo careful of our audiences.
If it wero not for them our road to famo
would be even thornier than It is at
present." , ,
"Do you go Into tho tank twico a day
on matiiico occasions?"
"I was afraid you would ask
that question. Thatts'onoof our stago

I don't mind telling you that tho mati
nee audiences never see mo in tho great

ntiout so much water, ovon when It is
absorbed. At matinees I go on with all
the sneaking pails just as usual, but,
when it comes to tho awful plunge, a
bigger and fatter girl takes it. l'tinny,
Isn't it? Sho Is almost twlco my size, in
tho matter of avoiulupois, but tho dear
audiences are bo cxelted that they never
notice the change. Sho really does tho
act very cleverly, considering tho prac

"Thero Is ono difference howovor,
which tho audiences havo never yot

Colonel Mcfutill's preparations for the pro
duction ot "IhoLady or tho Tiger" at Al
baugh's Grand Opcra-ilouso Monday ovonhig
aro of an elaborato aud cxpeuslvo character.
Tho cntlro scenery for tho production arrived
last night from Ualllinoro, whero the compauy
presented this opera with great success tho
llrst thrco nights of the week. Colonol Mc
Caull Is most particular to havo ft thorough
llrst night performance, and. by sending tho
scenery ahead, he Is cuablcd;tolmvo the stago
hands havo eulllclcnt rehearsals, and thcrcforo
the long and tedious delays between tho acts,
which alwajs prove ia nnnojlng, aro dono
away with. Tho Colonel will personally
supcrvlso tho production hero Monday even
ing, 'lbo salo of seats has been very large,
not only for tho first ulght, but tho cntlro
week's engagement. Tlio public are no
doubt anxious to sco how Mr. Kosonfold dis
poses of tho tiger, to tho satisfaction ot cveiy
body, and glvo this favorite organization a

An entirely now stago elTcct will bo seen at
Harris' DIJou Theatro next week Incidental to
tho production of "Hcrmlnlo" by tho Ked
muniMlarry Company, This novelty Is what
Is termed tho Hcdmund'Uarry Act Drop and by
Its uso tho usual tedious walls between acts
aro entirely dispensed with nnd the nctlon of
thu play continued unbroken. Upon the con
clusion ot each act, the usual drop curtain
fails and nit tho lights In tho house tiro cxtlu
gulshcd. Tho curtain then rises on tho now
illuminated uct drop upon which aro shown
tho ovents which are supposed to transplra be
tween the acts. Tho characters ot tho drama
aro seen cnrrjlng out their roles In tho plot
llko tho phantom figures ot n dream. The
theatre curtain then falls again, tho lights nro
turned up and tho next net Immediately com
mences. Apart from tho strong features of tho
piece, tills new act drop will doubtless proxo n
strong drawing attraction. Tho novelty miido
a gcnulno hit iu Now York und Boston nud
will doubtless do the saino here.
