Stuart Robron. supported by an ad mirable Company, presented Augustus Thomis's classical comedy "Oliver Gold smith" for tho necond time at English's Opera House last n!ht. Thu literary char acter of the play might have been gathered from the composition of tho large nudlenco that witnessed It. Such a gathering of. people prominent in tho city's professional life and of members of leading literary so cieties la rarely found in a theater. Play wright Thomas has certainly succeeded marveloualy in providing his play with that peculiar but highly essential attribute known as atmosphere. The characters talk and act as if the real persons had by some Kort of magic come to life again. Oliver Goldsmith, known to intimates as "Noll" and "Nolly," with his pcetlc mind and his blundering speech. H capitally portrayed by Mr. Robnon. One of the most delight ful character bits seen here in a long time it that contributed by Htnry A. Weaver, er., who impersonated Dr. Samuel Johnson with that degree of art that conceals art. Edmund Uurke lives again through the art Of Stephen Grattan. lieaumont Smith is an excellent Roswell. Clifford Leigh has little to do as Captain Horneck, but does that lit tle very well. O. E. llallam and Miss Jeffreys Lewis havo improved in the re spective roles of Mr. and Mrs. Feather stone since their appearance last season. George C. Staley is new' to the part of Mr. Kenrlck. but invests it with a dignity and certain f?ort of charm that almost rob it of Its repulslveness. Joseph 1. Winter as Coleman and Euward Dodge as Tony Lumpkin are the same as last season, nor was there any need of change. Great in terest was felt in the appearance of John 11. llenshaw in ihe dual role of David Gar rick and Uailiff Twitch, handled with such' consummate ability by Henry 11 Dixey a year ago. Mr. llenshaw lacks the artistic finish that Dixey always gives to his comedy creations, but nevertheless displays a large amount of talent. His Impersona tion of the bailiff was better than hl3 Gar ne and was so received by the audience last night. Miss Ten Broeck (Mrs. Hen nhaw) in the small character part of Mrs. Higgins i a revelation. Her previous work scarcely Indicated so much ability as a character actress. The cast shows but ono lamentable weakness, and that where it should be strong in the character of Mary Horneck. "the Jessamy lirlde." Miss Maude White, who has this important role. Invests it with tho necessary personal beau ty, but is sadly deficient in acting ability. Ellen Mortimer is still the Catherine Hor neck, "my Little Comedy," as Dr. Gold smith calls her, and is nothing' short of charming both in appearance and in her leading of the lines, H. Washburn as Mr. Druramond. the man whom Garrick brought from the Drury Lane Theater to supply the laughs at rehearsal of Goldsmith' new play, is new to the cast, but is a desirable acquisition. The infection of his prodigious laugh extended from the mock to the real audience. A clever bit of low comedy char acter acting Is done by James Grant, who has held the role of Mr. Flannigan. a bailiff, during tho two seasons the play has been on the road. Pesnie Harris, a talented child actress, played Little Annie last year, but that part has been dropped and Ml3 Harris assigned to the role of Little Mary "Oliver Goldsmith" has been provided with a complete and realistic stage setting, while the costumes are perfectly in harmony with the period and nature of the play. In view of the reputed coldness of Indianapolis audiences it was a trlüe remarkable that the one last night remained seated after the final curtain and . ilhd the principals to the footlights. The pleasant information was given out last nlsht that Mr. R.bon will bring his splendid revival of "She Stoop. to Con quer" to English's Opera House April 27. Vnudevllle mid Mln,tr-1 at Park. A three days' reign cf vaudeville and minstrelsy began at the Park Theater, yes terday afternoon, with an attendance that was fully up to the standard sot by Johnny and Emma Hay during the first half of the week. The new attraction is Husco & Hol land's Nashville Students, combined with Gideon's Minstrel Carnival, and it is an ex cellent colored fhow. Tho minstrel first part was given amid a handsome stage setting an.i was materially assisted by a goud band ftatlorr.d in the rear of the in terlocutor and hi c-tljuturs. The fun Was cuppiied by itilly .Miller, Hobby Kemp Harvey Goodall. Julius Glenn. Skinner Harris and frank Kirk. A number of pop ular airs were rendered, and the final which was a cornet soIm by S. i;. Dodd! aroused considerable enthusiasm. In the olio were In-.-diim- and Harris. In their nmusliif; absurdity, "The Wireless l'hone;" Prank Kirk, a rU-ve-r acrobat aru musi cian; Matth.- YVllks. iL popular singer spc-elally nitra?.-.!; (Install, Glenn. Kump! Duuclu;, and Lney, xrw WhanUvudla Diamonds Quintet," a body of singers with melodious voices; Marsh Craig, the wonderful con tortionist: Hilly Miller, the rnonologuist, and a picturesque finale, entitled "A Holi day In Zululand," Introducing an interest ing Zulu drill and war dance. Miss Wilks was ably assisted by Lewis Salisbury in her hinging specialty. An extra feature, not on the programme, was Ernest Hogan. singer of comic songs. Mr. HoKan is very popular, locally, judging from the outburst of ap plauses that greeted his appearance. His songs and Jokes nut with tho entire ap proval of the audience. The Nashville Students and minstrel per formers will give two performances each day. to-day and to-morrow. The bill changes. Monday, back to sensational rre lodrama in the form of "The Great White Diamond." one of the latest "thrillers." "Tin- ch Vurk lilrl Joe Howard, who has heretofore posed as a singer of illustrated hongs, bin- branched out this season with a burlesfjue organi zation of his own called "The New York Girl." and l K.eit a three days' engagement yesterday afternoon at tho Umpire Thea ter. Mr. Howard's venture cannot bo classed among the higher productions of the Famo class, for he has surrounded hlm-s-lf with a company that is mediocre. Tho chorus is small, but fairly tuneful. The burlesques Kavo evidence of not hav ing beeri rehearsed suillvlently. The first art represents a gambling room and Joe Howard assumes the part of an English lord and as such makes quite a hit with his work and Hinging. In this act are In troduced sonn from various comic operas which might have Inen appreciated had tho Hololst. Kittle NeUion, possessed a stronger voice. The. Salvation Army girl from the "Hell of New York" which .s produced under the title of the "Nation Girls" was well received. The olio Is very limited, the only strlk Ing feature) being the work of the Living ston trio, two women and a man, in an acrobatb act. The performance closes with a satire on that fashionable race- course in New York, "Sheepshead Hay." t .ote of the St nice. "Tho Village Postmaster" will be present ed in Cincinnati next week at Heucks's Theater, a popular-priced house. Henry H.

Ilew (he Football Player Get Hin Culture mill F.elucu t letu Alretliol .ot a l'ouel, but InJurloiiN. CHICAGO, Feb. 2S."The football player gets a llttlo culture from his studies; ho gets his education from his football," said I Van Ii. H. R. Rrlggs, of Harvard College, in discussing to-day before the superin tendents of the National Fdueatlonal As fociation "Some Aperts of Public School Training." "Hy which," he continued, "I mean that werk Is education. Tho wholo elrlft of i)w present tlmo is to turn work Into play and to turn play Into work. The modern educator thinks that t ho child's work must bo amusing, and the athletic trainer knows that the athlete's play must be work. From which arises the kinder garten on tiie) one hand and the feotball game on the other." Mr. Rrlggs said father: "Tho first lesson of education In Its truest senso Is to get down to harel work ami to do it well. This lesson is education, though It be learn. d in a mill. Application, concentration, abil ity to elotheso are the results of educa tion. Fer this reason tho business man often prefers tho college nthleto to tho man of college honors because tho athlete has done something and tho business man knows that the doing of things Is a necessity In actual life. I holet that the common schoeil shou!d do as much for tho boy In the way of education as eloes the game ef football. Tho business of tho grammar scheol is not to fedlow t ho mind, but to lead it. It should not allow tho childish mind to go whither it llsteth; it should point a elelltdt' path. Drill, elrill and absolute accuracy should be the function of the grammar sehend. It sheiuld lay the foundations on which may bo erected the substance as well as th frills ef life. To this end I believe that th teaching of tho Fngllsh language Is the; chief function of the grammar school. Let there be much reading, writing and speaking of tho Fn gllsh language. This, with a small amount of mathematics and n little geography, will form, 1 believe, a suitable foundatlem for later work. It may be a narrow founda tion, but It is better than one so incumbered with tho diversions of education that the child can crawl over but not stanel upon it. "To tho objection that elrill is eleaden ing, I answer that the child enjoys repe tition ami can stand much more of It than can the adult. I prefer to havo a boy of mine use the English language decently, even if he does not havo an opportunity to study German In the grammar school. I believe in the early and earnest study of tho grammar of our language. I would, have tho child store his mind with tho maxims of our language. I elo not believe that tho modern slighting of the study of grammar Is producing writers of the same perfection as we had In the early elaya of our cemntry. Sewing for the girls and manual training for the boys are admir able, but they must not take the place of tho hard Intellectual work which educate as nothing else can. Frills In education may well bo compared to tho frills In dress. A frill won't tako the placo of a warm petticoat." Dr. William L. Harris, national com missioner ef education, took issue with Professor Rrlggs. He. said: "I am thor oughly tired of all the talk about mental discipline. I left Yale College in my junior year because I was ellsgusted with that sort of thing. It was Latin and Greek the embryo of all learning. It was so much embryo that nothing was ever hatehcel. I thought it wrong then and I know it is wrong now. The best education for the child, as for the college man. Is that which links the school work with the child's life. That is the education that teaches. I do not believe that the kindergarten amuses at the expense of developing habits of orderly work. The kindergarten arouses the child to a perception of tho life of which he is a part." Alcohol ns a food was condemned by the educators to-day. On this subject and the report submitted by a committed of seven appointed a year ago to investi gate the value of alcohol as a food a lively debate was anticipated. The report of the. committee, however, which simply stated "No authority has been found who main tained that alcohol is a food." and recom mending literature discussing the subject, was adopted, with but little discussion, this action being regarde.-d as a victory for the conservative element among the educa tors. School children will accordingly be simply told that alcohol is injurious, and no special course of instruction on its ef fects on the human system will be given. The report of the committee on teaching of physiology as. bearing on the effect of alcohol was as follows: "We recommend that a body of educational doctrine be for mulated which nay guldt temperance in instruction in the schools throughout the e-ountry, and we further recommend that the scope of investigation be so enlargeel as to cover not only the topics suggested, but also the Meld of personal hygiene so far as this is a practical matter for school in struction. We also recommend that this investigation be e-ondueted under the direc tion of the National Educational Associa tion." The following officers were reported elect ed by the secretary: President, T. IL Glenn, Atlanta, Ca.: first vice president, H. T. Fmerson, Ruffalo. N. Y.; second vice presi dent, F. W. Cooley, Calumet, Mich.; secre tary, John W. Deitricht, Colorado Springs, Col. Chicago was chosen as the meeting place for the next annual session. The con vention closed to-night. Deputy Sheriff Indicted. Secretary Wilson, cf the United Mine Workers, yesterday afternoon received a telephone message from ofllcers of the local union at Henderson, Ky., stating that in dictments had been returned against the deputy sheriffs who shot and killed two miners, named Taylor and Cook, while the miners' convention was In session In this city last January. Mr. Wilson said he hael Information that the men were employed by a coal company as ofllcers. Taylor and Cook were shot while on their way to at tend a meeting of the miners. Mr. Wilson said the union will tise eve-rv effort to see that the men are punisheil by the courts. The men indicted are chargeel with murder. Tlrcel of IleliiK Fugitive. Harry H. Munroe. twenty years of age, who escaped from the Reformatory at Plainficld in November, surrendered himself early this morning at police headquarters tecause he was afraid he might be sent to the Jeffersonville prison to t-erve the re mainder of his time if a bill now before) tho legislature was made a law. Ho raid his p.irents live at 32i North Capitol avenue, and that he was tired of hiding from tho police. ATTACKS FIVE JURYMEN c;i:oiic;i: 31. hays ii:mkiiatk fight roil a m:v trial. Terre Ilnute?

Court ad journed at 3 o'clock this afternoon until after dinner to-morrow, jn the Geergc M. Ray case, to give the state time to prepare counter affidavits. From early morning tho people streamed into town from all directions to listen to t ho argument for a new trial. Tho court nom was croweled long before court opened. The first thing was the filing of tho bill of exceptions. In which tho defenso atte nipted to get Special Judge Klrkpatrlck to sign certain things which wore not In tho records. Several hours were spent in straightening out this matter and then fol lowcel the motion for a new trial, contain ing sixty-three separate counts. Among other grounds advanceel for a new trial were tho actions ef tho court In allowing the crowel to applaud the speech of John S. Duncan for tho sUte. It attacked tho in tegrity of live of the Jurors by affidavit. Lorenzo Manly, William Finbry and Louis Rallcy, of St. Paul, mado affidavit that they had heard Jurer Diltz say last spring that "if Georgo Ray had his Just dues he would bo In tho penitentiary." Dr. William T. Shrout, Lee Shrout, James H. Harris. and William Mldklff swore they heard Juror John T. Peak say that "Rny was guilty, and If he was em tho Jury he would send him to the penitentiary;" and at another time, "I have no use for Gcergo Ray, and I elon't want to go near him." Fred S. Strong ami Geerge L. Huffman swore they hearel Juror Ge-orgo W. Ferris say' that "Ray was guilty anel emght to bo in the penitentiary, and they were going to get him this time. Phil Paty anel Walter A. McDonald sworo they heard Juror John W. Carson say that "Ray was responsible for all this trouble, anel if he and the commissioners were sent to tho penitentiary befeire tho election it woulel be all right;" that "he was guilty and ought to take his eloso with the rest of them." Lereiy Jones, A. J. Westerfleid and John W. Wartleld swore thev heard Jumr Phuel Llnvllle say that "if he was on tho Jury lie woulel send Ray to the penitentiary as long as he lived. That he ought to have be en i ( nt up long agei." Since the trial ho had said that he "knew before tho trial they woulel cemvlct him." The substance of Ray's attacks upon tho Jurors has been known for several days, but tho state was granted tin t It to-morrow afternoon to prepare counter nflldavit. Kwrythlng passed oft quietly to-day, not withstanding tho great crewel the elefend ant hael subpoenaed. These men wore brought In 1 1 furnish nddltlonal evidence against the Jurors, but in several cases t ho men calleel would not make affidavits for tlu defense anel were excused. All day a stre.ng undercurrent of feeling was mani fested In the crowd against tho defendant. Ray has neve r elenled that he furnished the blanks complained ef, nnd tho contract which lie swore to himself on anotheT caso was tho principal cvldenco to securo his ceuivlctlon.

Farmer Shut Hi iKhltor. Special to the Indlanapedla Journal. SFYMOUR, Ind., Feb. On Monday night a farmer living west of Wailesboro was awakened by an unusual noise among his chickens. He picked up his gun nnd, on going out, discovered a man with sev eral chickens in his hands, Just ready to leave. He tired and the man fell. On in vestigation ho learned he had shot one of his neighbors, so he took the wounded man to his home. It was found that lie was dangerously wounded, though ho may re cover. An effort has been mado to keep tho matter quiet. TFRRi: HALTH'S DISGRACE Around Xo Seime of Shame Except with, the XewNpupern. Special to tho Indianapolis Journal. TERRC HAUTE, Ind., Feb. S.-Thero lr, little or no prospect that any one will b-3 prosecuted locally for the lynching of tho negro, George Ward. The very largo major ity of tho people are Indifferent or com mending the act and excusing the officers of tho law for not making a determined effort to protect the prisoner. Sheriff Fasig has made a public statement that, after consulting with prominent business men he decided to let the mob have its own way, and instructed the deputies not to injure any one. As a result of this statement he has held a levee at his oillce in the court house to-day. There has been a stream of people all day calling to congratulate him. The newspapers of the city are in sack cloth and ashes over the discovery that such indifference to the sense of humanity exists in the community. Moreover, they are sad because, on the second day after the excitement, people still do not seem to realize the barbarity of the scenes during all the afternoon while the crowds of boys and men mado a bonfire over the negro'c lody and whistled and sang "A Hot Time in the Old Town To-night" as they cleaned pieces of bones of the negro's body and e.ffered them for sale. The schools lott many pupils that afternoon, and the fac tories were short of men. Now that it' Is all over there is no sen timent for the prosecution of the men who were worse than the negro. Judge Piety dees not feel the necessity of calling a special session of the grand Jury, and the piosecutor says he is busy in court. No cne seems to think It is an extraordinary eccasiort calling for extraordinary steps to indicate the law. 3Iayor TaKjinrP WnRpr. Special to the In3lanaiol!s Journal. MUNCIF, Feb. 28.

As a result of a religious revival, the days of the fa mous "Hlue Goose" saloon, at Rurllngton, are numbered, and the Institution will be closed up, If not elestroyed. About ten days ago a revival began in Burlington and so successful was it that all of the old-time patrons ef the saloon paid all their atten tion to the church, and the rum shop w-ia deserted. George Hlack, tho proprietor, be came lonely and finally determined to at tend the serviced himself. He went, anel btcutn so interested that he went again the next night, and then on Tuesday night he became the center of an inspiring scene at the altar.
