The announcement that Mme. Modjeska
w.u!d be seen last night at English's Opera
House in Wagenhals & Kemper's new and
lavish revival of "King John," playing for
the first and last time here the Intensely
tragic role of Lady Constance, brought out
a much larger audience than ?aw her In
the more familiar "Mary Stuart" yesterday
afternoon. The promoters of the present
sp'rr.d'.d production of Shakspearc's power
ful play deserve the sincercst praise of all
lovers of art. Each scene U faultless In
detail and a lval gem of the scene-painter's
art. The setting are massive and Impos
ing, characteristics which go far toward
supplying an atmosphere of reality dittt-
cult to attain in a classic play.
"King John" as Interpreted by Mme.
IiJjc?ka and her company of Intelligent
and veil-trained players was received with
every demonstration of approval last night,
l-ach of th principals. Mme. Modjeska as
Hdy ',wtrin(V- u- D MacLean as King
John Odette Tyler as Prince Arthur. Max
or. MitzH as Hubert. Dairy Johnstone as
1 aulconlri lge. Mr. Henry Vandenhoff as
Quen Elinor and Miss Kate Hassett as
lynche, received one or more curtain
calls. Abe play affords better opportuni
ties to the men than to the women in the
Ca,s.l. Earrv Johnstone afforded delightful
,1" J.rorVhe tragic intensity of the play
with his charming rendition of the witty
and sarcastic lines attributed to Faulcon
orkige. Mr. MatLean surprised even these
who witnessed his excellent acting in
Mary btuart by the furcr fulness of his
ceiineation of King John. The mad scene
and tae death of the king were admirably
execut-d. Mi.s Tylr ndded new laurels to
x.er rar.ie by hr delicacy in portraying the
JJmrathetic character of the melancholy
I riuee Arthur, rising to quite a height of
dramatic power in the appeal to Hubert to
rorbear the cruelty of putting out Ms eyes
witn redhot Iron. Madame Modjeska 'was
peatly hampered hy the husklneps of her
jo.ee. Lut in the delirious scene succeeded"
i?'Vy.rcon,Ins thI defect and won a gpnu
metrlumph. The production was one that
will lens b treasured in the memorie of
cuoie fortunate tnough to too it. One caa-
hot forego the expression of a feeling of
surprise that so much expenditure should
nave been made upon a play which was to
be presented upon a single tour.

HIGGINS CHIED IN SALOON
SCFJirD FOIl FIRST TI3IE TO REAL
IZE HIS PREDICAMENT.
Indictments Asninat Mallady and
Hedge Other Cases In the
John M. Higgins, councilman of the Fif
teenth ward, was arrested yesterday upon
three indictments returned by the grand
Jury, charging him with bribery. The grand
Jury made its report at noon, Juryman
George Hanch, who had been detained
from attending the sessions for more than
a week on account of illness, having come
In yesterday morning to give his consent
to whatever action might bo taken. Hig
gins was about tho courthouse during the
morning, but left before the indictments
were returned. It was understood that the
"Commodore" intended to give himself up
in case he was Indicted, but after waiting
for some time, the capiases were turned
over to the sheriff for execution.
Deputy Sheriff Kelfer was sent out after
him. He went to the office of Henry N.
Spaan, who had been engaged In advance
to defend Higgins, but found that the coun
cilman had Just gone down on another ele
vator. Deputy Sheriff Craft had telephoned
to Spaan's office and Spaan assured him
Higgins would give himself up. Keifer at
once left Spaan's office and started in pur
suit of Higgins. The councilman was ac
companied by Michael Kelly. The two
went directly to the sheriff's office. As
they entered the door, Higgins said to Craft
that he understood he had been indicted,
and asked him what his bond would be.
He was told that three indictments had
been returned against him and that the
bond would be $h&00 in each case. Higgins
seemed puzzled for a few minutes, and
said it was a rather heavy bond. He then
asked permission to get a bondsman, which
was granted, and Deputy Sheriff Keifer
went out with him to hunt security.
In th3 canvass Higgins visited a number
of saloons and objected seriously to Keifer
sticking so closo to him. He asked the dep
uty to either get In front or behind, as he
did not wish to be seen in company with
him. In Kelly's Ealoon Higgins was sur
rounded by "several of his friends, who be
gan to talk to him. Here was the first
time Higgins appeared to realize the serious
predicament he is in. He broke down and
cried. All the time while the investigation
was going on Higgins regarded it as a Joke.
In the saloon he said his joking was what
got him into trouble and there was nothing
true in the indictments or charges made
against him. .
James L. Keach was found and he fur
nished the necessary bond of $4,500. Hig
gins seemed greatly relieved when he se
cured bond. .
The indictments are based upon the al
leged attempts to secure money from D.
M. Parry for his (IBggms's) influence ana
ote in the Council in connection with a
permit to build a switch to the Parry
Manufacturing ' Company's plant. There
are four counts in each indictment. He is
charged in one. indictment with soliciting
a briber of $1.000, in another $500 and In an
other $200. The State's witnesses are D. M.
Parry, S. C. Parry, Bert Adams, Charles
M. Osgood, Harry E. Negley, James Bra
den, Daniel O'Brien and Joseph Schaf.
While other charges were Investigated
Mid evidence was secured sufficient to war
rant other indictments Prosecutor Pugh
thought these would accomplish the pur
rose of the investigation. Prosecutor Pugh
will ask Judge Alford, of the Criminal
Court, to-day to set the trial for next week,
as he cteslres to try the case himself be
töre his term as prosecutor expires.
The grand hiry also returned indictments
against William Mallady and Frank
Hedges, charged with the murder of Leona
Wilhelm. Mrs. Wilhelm was found mur
dered on tho bank of White river. She
v.as beaten and choked to death. The In

against the city. of Indianapolis for an In

He represents that he has twelve lots on

Works passed a resolution to widen the
street by taking five feet off of his lots. He
says he has not bsen given a just hearing
before the board and that no damage has
been awarded him for widening the street.

Assaulted nnd Then Killed.
LEAVENWORTH. Kan., Nov. 7.-Tn
de cut body of Pearl Forbes, aged twenty,
was found in a ravine near her home in
this city to-day. L'vlJently he had ben
murdered by strangulation, after a ierrlblo
struggle, tihe was of a prominent fam
ily. There is no clew to the murdtrer.
Feeling over the affair is intense.
It is believed that the girl was outraged
and killed to stifle her cries. Further in
vestigation leads to .the belief that the
murder was committed by two men. Miss
Forbes was employed In a local randy fac
tory. A male companion usually walked
home from work with her. Yesterday h
professed Inability to accompany her and
advised her to take a car. Miss Forbes de
clined, saying she preferred to walk.
