NATIONS’ CRADLE SONGS. Utile ones pose in pictur esque costumes: %Illl|nt Entertainment at the Theatre East Night—Stage Groups of Seven Nation*—National Lu'lsbles Sung in CoitnSie—Some of the Scenes and Tableaux. Probably the prettiest, most novel and *not successful entertainment given by local talent in Savannah in a long while was “The Cradle Songs of All Nations,” ■which was produced at the Theatre last higbt. It was wholly in charge ot ladies, hnd charity being the key to their mo tives, every one of them worked zealously to make it what it proved to be, an artistic %tld financial success, A fashionable audience crowded all of the lower part of the douse and expressed its appreciation in lavish applause. The 'ending features of theentertainment were representing domestic scones IP? diit'erent peoples. The purpose was to give as near as possible a true family pic ture, showing Ibe little ones and | arents with a little coloring to heighten the effect. The setting ranging according 10 the nationalities. AMERICAN TABLEAU. At 8:30 the curtain rolled to the patriotic strains of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” revealing a typical American picture. The Goddess of Liberty (Miss Brandt) was the central figure, hearing the national shield In one hand and the flag in the other. On the right was a Sailor (Robbie Coburn), and on the left an lonian (Clarenoe Connerat, .Jr.), with ebildron grouped around. The sntMjnnd stripes were prominent. A bursts'applause greeted the scene, and the curtain went up tue second time to “Dixie.” At the end of the pioture the children came in front of the curtain and gave a Trench song, which was applauded. The in charge of Mrs. Dr. Ron ton, Mrs. Henry McKee and Mrs. George I*. Screven. SCOTCH TABLEAU. The picture revealed in the second set was the interior oi a Scotch home, and was suggestive of mat sweet pastoral lyric “The Cotter’s Saturday night.” Toe u guJe mother,” Mrs. Haynes, sat hum ming a lullaby to the bairn, wbie the grandmother, Mrs. P. H. Ward. was teaching another “chiel” to read. By an open window was “Jean,” Miss Good win, and looking in was a lover, Mr. Hal ?hhnson. Others in tha picture were iitle Miss. Anderson and Masters Milton Bacon and D, C. Bacon, Jr. A spinning wheel and plaids gave the scene national coloring. The tableau was under the direction of Mrs. D. C. Bacon. When the curtain dropped Mr. Frank E. Rebarer sang in his usual excellent •tyle, “Come Into the Garden.” He re sponded to the encore with a Dow. PERSIAN TABLEAU. The third scene was one of the prettiest fif the entertainment, it was a glimpse Within an oriental palnee, displaying a Och pioture of luxurious Eastern lile. The eye roamed over it as at the gems in some great goldsmith’s shop caught by each color ’til the next was seen. In the foreground was a Persian daughter with a harp, and near, the mother, singing a lullaby. Others in tiie picture were a maiden 111 a listening attitude, one re clining, another fondling a desert ante lope, and still another fondling a white rabbit, while scattered about over the Boor were mocra buds. In the background were three ii •- vres representing the three graces Aglaia, Thalia and Euphrosyne, with Mars and Diana on either side. Mrs. Morrison had charge of the tableaux, assisted by Mrs. Harden. The figures were represented by Miss Susie Footman, Miss Bradley, Miss Lesesne, Charles Be Hardy, Henry Draoe and othors. The tableau was very pretty and was onthu- Siastic&lly received. At its conclusion Mrs. Haynes sung with rare expression a pretty song entitled, “Oh Loving Heart Trust On.” Every no.e was pure •ud and the audience gate a loud- and [iroionged call for an encore. Mrs. Haynes responded by gt\ing “Tue Deyoted Apple.” a bright little descrip tive flfltg, which was also warmly ap- ENGLISH TABLEAU. A simple, but pretty picture was (hown in the fourth set. it repre sented an English home scene, with the mother caressing a babe, the grandmother showing a little one h Watch, an easel displaying a tacc more Datura! than any that artist ever painted, and almost as beautiful as the ideals oi the masters. The pioture was arranged by Mrs. Orowther. and among the char acters were Miss S. Shivers, Miss Davis, Lollie Way, Swan Sullivan, Milton Bacon, and a dog which was much ad mired and which came in for its share oi Apniause. Aws. Haynes and Mr. Rebarer saug a duet, “Moonlight on the It'iiiio,” at the tall of the curtain and were applauded. SPANISH TABLEAU. Another ol the very beautiful scenes was the Bpanish picture under the man agement ot Mrs. Mayoelo. The tableau represented fair donnas lin- Bering over a table listening to a oon. ither ladies were seated or standiug Around, and in the foreground was a little tambourine girl. Those assuming the Characters were Mrs. Maynelo, Mrs. Far ley, Mrs. Stevens, .Miss Dims lead, Miss- Liny, little Misses May Wilcox, Saiah Wills, Mane Mavuolo, Jeauuio Sullivan in 1 Mr. Rafael Salas. The scene received two enftLes. TABLEAU. None of the pictures were prettier than the Japanese tableau. An immense um brella, from which were hung festoons of Japanese lanterns, was thu canopy under which the several liguros were arrauged. lu the scene was a genuine Japanese rush cradle. The lullaby sung by Mrs. Haynes was in the original Japanese tongue, l'he costuming of the characters was Iplendid and after the most approved Mikado style. Those in the tableau, which was under the direction ot Mrs. 8. P. Hamilton, were: Miss Vida Fleming, Miss Bulloch, Miss (Jarrutbers, Mtss Ward, little . Misses Virtue Hamilton, Flossie Dultiu and Mr. late Wylly. The scene was enthusiasti cally greeted. It was followed by the “Blue Danube Waltz," rendered by Mrs. Backus, Mr. ttebarer and Mr. They were reoulled, and repeated the! same piece. INDIAN TAHLKAU.' The camp of a latntly of America’s aborigines lormed the seventh picture. A wigwam, a camp fire, a couple of Vjuaws with papoose* strapped on their banks, and a “Poor Lo” made a very pic turesque scene. Mrs. Maitland Dougal di rected the tableau. Taking part In it were Miss Lewis, Miss Lucy K eves, Mr. Gibbs. little Miss s Nannie Moreven, •leu aio Sullivan and Master Clarence Unnfierat. The audience called the curtain up a scooud time on lbs scene. While the next, pioture was being set Mr. Rafael Salas sang a ha lad entitled “It Was a Dream.” Mr. Salas has quite a rich hariloue, and ho lings with good method. His song was bncored and be responded with one ol bus Williams’comical selections, which brought down tlie house. RUSSIAN TABLEAU. The last picture was of Russian home ”**• * urn and rugß scattered around and k bomber ol lighted tapors lent an air of realism to the picture. Mrs. Cornwell and Mrs. Gibb* bad charge of tbo tableau, the principal iigure In tht; set was the mother. Miss Shivers, who was costumed in white, making a beautiful picture. A number of children occupied chairs or lay stretched full length upon the floor. Al though the last scene it too was heartily cheered. Several of the lullabies were sung by Mrs. Porcher Postelt. The stage management was under the direction of Mr. J. C. Shaw. The entertainment was highly enjoyed by the audience and the lady managers were greatly gratified at the evidences of appreciation shown by the house. Not a feature was allowed to pass without a round of applause. The success of the performance was in a large measure due to the work ot Mrs. George P. Screven, who had general supervision of the rehearsals and produc tion. A matinee will be given to-day, at which Japanese. German, PTench, Irish, Spanish. Angel of Peace and other tab leaux will be given. THROUGH THE CITY. Items Gathered Here and There by the News Reporters. The Savannah Yacht Club will hold a special meeting at the Fords’ Opera house at 12:30 to-day for the election of members. At the regular monthly meeting of the Jasper Mutual Loan Association, held last night, tbe following advances were made: SI,OOO at 85% and $3,000 at 85%. William Hicks (colored)iwas sentenced to pay sl2 fine or go to jail thirty days by the Mayor yesterday for fighting in W. B. Brown’s barroom and creating an excitement at 7:20 p. m., Feb. 10. A dozen colored boys were waiting at Davis Bros, at midnight tor the box sheet tor Rhea’s engagement to open. The first hoy was at the door by seven o’clock. In half an hour there were three others and they kept arriving all night. The old and unsightly trees in the Park extension are being cut down to give more room for the military in their drill. Many of these trees are dead and mis- Hr.apen stumps, and their removal will, add to the appearance of the parade ground. Nearly all of toe military is drilling for the display on Washington’s birthday. The general parade will probably take place in tbe forenoon, and in theatternoon the Hussars will nave a tournament at Ton Broeck course at which all tbe military, the Governor and staff and in vited guests will be present, The widening of Bryan aod Congress streets in iront of Johnson square is one of the improvements about to be made by Ibe city. The iron lence around the square is in need of repair, and while this is being done it is proposed to widen the streets, which are inconveniently narrow at these points, and to give more street room in front ot the hotels. The square now occupies a portion of ground which belongs to the streets. The police have considerably abated the slung shot uuisance during tbe past week, since the matter was discussed by the Morning News, and the boy that uses the miserable little weapon and play thing now does it on the sly, and he looks around every corner to see it the police ate anywhere in sight before lie ventures to pull it even at a mark. Tbe teachers in the schools have forbidden its use in the play grounds, and whenever a sling is found it is confiscated. The walks running north and south through Tellaif Place are being straight ened and put in lino with the sidewalks on either side of Barnard street. Here tofore they have been out of line, and the state and York street crossings on the north and south sides of tiie square have been thrown out of parallel with the car tracks and out. of line witn the Barnard street sidewalk. The City Surveyor lias been directed td advertise for bids for paving the sidewalks ruuning east and west through the square. When this is done and the trees have been replanted in line the appearance of the square will have been greatly improved. The work *s being done under the direction or the Street and Lane Committee, which is looking closely into the ways for the im provement ol all the squares. COED WAVE COMING. A Fall of 30 Dogs, in Temperature Predicted for To-Day. The unseasonable weather which has prevailed for the past few days is likely to give place within the next twenty-four hours to weather more in keeping with the time of the year. The cold wave flag was hoisted at the signal station at 6 o’clock last night. The Washington Weather Bureau predicts a lull in temperature ot 25 to 30 clegs, by 7 o’clock to-morrow morning. At 11 o’clock lust night the observer on duty at the signal station reported 68 deg's, a fall ot even 35 degs. to-day will not pro duce uncomfortably cold weather. There was a big difference last night between the weather in Savannah and in Bismarck, Dak. The latter place re ported 20 degs. below zero, S3 degs. be low what the mercury registered here. At Yaukton, Dak., it was 3 degs. below, at St. Paul, Minn., it was 0 degs. below, and at Marquette, Micb., it was 7 (legs, below. The cold wave is moving down from tue lake region through tbe Ohio and Tennes see valleys, and will probably reach hero by to-morrow morning. The wave, how ever, is not very pronounced and Is not moving with a great deal ot force. THE PAVILION HOTEL. The Sale Continued by the Superior Court, The sale of the Pavilion Hotel property to the trustees of the Chatham Academy was confirmed yesterday by Judge Adams’ who granted a petition to that effect.

RAOUL’S CHANCE FOR THE INTERSTATE “COM MERCE COMMISBIONER.SHIP. His Friends Urging His Appointment by the President—His Fitness for the Position—lnfluential Friends t Work in His Behalf—Gov. Smith’s and Mr. Barnett’s Candidacy. Ex-President Raoul, o( the Central railroad, returned yesterday from Ala bama. His friends are pushing him for appointment on the Interstate Commerce Commission. Although he has been urged for some time to allow the use of his it was not known until a day or two ago that he would accept the appointment. Since Gen. Alexander’s succession to the Presidency of the Central, Capt. Raoul ! has received numerous offers of re munerative positions, none of which he has accepted. His fitness (or Interstate Commerce Commissioner from the sec tion south of the Potomac and Ohio rivers and east of the Mississippi is almost universally recognized. With eighteen years of railroad experience, sixteen years of which have been with the Cen tral, ho is thoroughly posted upon ail matters relating to the railroad and com mercial interests of the South. Capt. Raoul has written to friends at Washing ton tnat t.e desires a place on the Com mission. He said yesterday that the ap pointment would be something that he could not afford to throw away, and while he will not personally push uis candidacy at Washington, if the President sees fit to appoint nim it will be an acceptable preferment. Ex-Secretary of State Barnett and ex- Gov. Smith are toe only avowed candi dates in the fieid from the South. Capt. Raoul is assured tee backing ot influen tial friends at Washington, and he will probably receive the support of the South Carolina and Alaoama delegations in Congress. Air. Harnett is now in Wash ington pushing his candidacy there. RIVER AND HARBOR NEWS. Gleanings Amoug tiie Shipping aud Along; the Wharves. The steam tug Forest City was hauled out yesterday on WilHnk’s marine rail way lor a thorough overhauling. The schooner Harbeson Hickman was towed up to the city last night and an ex amination ol the vessel will be had to day. lier managing owner, Capt. Robin son, arrived yesterday. Messrs. A. R. Salas A Cos. cleared yes terday the Norwegian bark Aagot for Hamburg with 4,700 barrels of rosin, weighing 2,140,205, pounds, valued at $9,- 150. Cargo by Messrs. S. P. Shotter & Cos. The German hark Satisfaction was cleared yesterday for West Hartlepool with 3.8;!7 pieces ot pitch pine lumber, measuring 314.288 feet, valued at $4,400. Largo and vessel cleared by Messrs. Jas. K. Clarke & Cos. Air. John Jarditie, of the firm of J. & T. Jardine, of Rtehibucto, is in the city. They are owners of a line of sailing ves sels trading between the Southern States and Liverpool. Three of their vessels are now in port, consigned to Messrs. Holst & Cos., namely: The barks Valona, Ko noma and Pobona. The latter vessel is (lie one damaged in the recent collision with the steamship Chattahoochee. The new steamship Pocahontas, the building of which will be begun in a few weeks at, Alexandria, Vs., by the Arrow Steamship Company, which owns all the patents upon her for not only this coun try, but aii the restol tne world, wnerever a steamship can be built, will be a most extraordinary vessel. She is to be 540 feet long over all, with 40 feet breadth of beam; will draw 20 feet 3 inches at the bow, and 25 feet 3 inches at tho stern; and her engines will develop in ordinary working a force of 12,000 hor9e-power, with a capacity forincrease to over 25,000. Her lines—sloping 207 feet each way from her amidship section— are even sharper than those of Herres hoff’s famous launch, the Stiletto, and her proportion ot motive power tb resist ance isvery much greater than that little wonder possesses. At the same time, there are certain peculiarities about her exterior form and interior construction that, it is believed by competent marine constructors, will make her a very steady vessel. The Pocahontas is to be of steel and iron throughout, built by a system of vertical transverse and both vertical and horizontal longitudinal wails, upon an iron keel of wonderfully strong construction and weighing 750 tons. She will thus be cellular, consist, ing of 1,060 compartments, of which 600 are to he below the water line, and could not be sunk, even were she out in two, or be any more liable to burning than is r. safe deposit vault. Not the least inter esting feature of the venture is the fact tnat the new steamer is to be sailed under the America!! flag. Took All His Pain* Away. * A. M. Chisholm, ot No. 2724 Storidart street, St. Louis, Mo., writes: “During my long residence in Canada I suffered for years with severe pains in my back, across the region of the kid neys, and by the constant, use ot all cock’s Blasters invariably obtained great relief. Upou removing to St: Louis, 1 was again trpulded with the same com plaint and was advised to use Magnetic and other kinds ot plasters, without being relieved of pain, so fell back to my old friend Allcock, who gives me more re lief than any other 1 have ever tried. 1 always recommend them to my friends and all who suffer from pains and aches o! any kind.” At Kstlll’a.

Tbe littered condition of the streets in many parts of the city, and the failure to observe the ordinance in regard to de posits of garbage, has necessitated pub lication of the city ordinances in refer ence to those matters and the issue ot a special order to the police to see that they are rigidly enforced. The ordinances are published elsewhere in the Morning News. They are very specific in regard to the disposition of rubbish from houses and yards, and ex pressly forbid the throwing of any sort of rubbish into the streets or lanes under a penalty of not more than SSO for every offense, and every tenant or occupant of the premises opposite or nearest to where the rubbish or garbage is found will be presumed to be the offender, and will be subject to the fine prescribed bv the ordinance and to im prisonment in delauit of payment of the lino. The matter was discussed at the last meeting of the City Council, aud the Chairman of the Street and Lane Committee stated that the ordinary measures have been taken to correct the nuisance. Broughton, Congress and other business streets are littered every day with papers, posters and circulars, scattered on the sidewalks by enterpris ing advertisers, anddirt swept from stores aud crossings,which is blown back, to the discomfort ol those who attempt to Keep their places clean and neat. The ordinance in’ regard to throwing garbage into the lanes Is continually vio lated. The police vill make a thorough inspection, and parties violating tbe ordi nances will be put upou the information ducket at once. A lew fines will doubt less have the effect of securing cleaner streets and lanes, so far as rubbish thrown into them is concerned. AT THE CHURCHES.
