Pl.es I.st JTenlng-. "Uncle Josh" ia always a popular play, and it was presented last evening by the Arion Dramatic company of this city for the benefit of Capital lodge No. 3, at 418 Kansas avenue. There was not as good an attendance as was expected. George M. Fieger seemed well adapt ed for the part of "Uncle Josh." John Fieger showed more than ordin ary ability in his impersonation of the part of "Upson Downes," the dude. His acting was the cleverest of the cast. Jos. W. Kraemer was a very good lover. He took the part of "Gerald Murray," who is In love with the heroine, "Letty Rey nolds," and it may be said that he played his part very well. The parts of "Mrs. Reynolds" by Mrs. George M. Fieger, "Minerva Clackett," by Miss Clara Boltz, "Letty Reynolds," by Miss Effie Boltz, "Munson," by Wm. Usher, and ''Joe Clark," by Charles Sehnaibel, were all well taken and helped to make the entertainment a very pleasant one. Joe Griley was a very funny "Erastus," the colored servant. J. 11. Solecki inter preted the part of the "Count de Cour ville" in a very creditable manner. The stage was rather small, but the play was well put on and elicited much applause. Steinberg's orchestra fur nished music Read the "Wants." Many of them are as interesting as news items. See if it ia not so. V i M nM li ti ti C. O. JOHNSON, THE Hater 516 KANSAS AVE.

Garvey was "at home" this afternoon to nearly three hundred ladies, who were invited, complimentary to Mrs. Charles Spencer, who has just returned from Lake Charle3, La. The house was thrown open, and the bright sunshine took possession of the rooms; the soft breeze and the flowers all combined to make an ideal June day. The broad veranda hung with southern moss, and with rugs and chairs arranged comforta bly, served as an inviting retreat. Over the door leading from the hall to the dining room was an arch of daisies and vines, and beyond a bewildering mass of white and yeliow, greeted the observer. The dining table was spread with white and yellow embroidered linen, and a tall center piece of antique silver was filled with daisies. The mantel was banked with them, and a screen woven with daisies and vines filled the doorway lead ing to the porch. Sherbet, fancy cakes and bonbons were served here, by Misa Amelia Garvey, assisted by Misses Laura Douthitt, Mabel Qnigley, Gussie Fuller, Mabel Chase, Willa Rodger3, Henrietta and Mary Thompson, who wore dainty summer frocks. In the archway between the dining room and parlor a fretwork of daisies was charming and above the other arch were southern palm leaves. The June roses were not forgotten and were given a place in various nooks, their fragrance being faintly perceptible in every apart ment. A punch bowl in the library across the hall received due attention, and Mrs. A. H. Connelly and Mra. Harold Chase served frappe to the guests, who sought a refreshing draught. Mrs. Spencer was attired in a black satin gown, shot with gold, trimnfed with ruffles of Bourdon lace, and she carried pink roses.

A short programme in the early part ot trie evening waa opened by a vocal duet by Misses Daisy Starr and Ada Tay lor, after which Chas. D. Welch, presi dent of the alumni, welcomed the class of :94, and was responded to by Clarence H,vans. Mr. John McDonald, after con siderable deliberation at last decided to go upon the stage, and delivered a few witty remarks, wh ich were followed by an address by Mr. James A. Troutman. The chairs were then pushed back and the young people danced, the older ones talked, and not a few repaired to the stage where ice cream and cake were served. Among the picnic parties on Decora' tion day was one to Silver Lake, which leit town at about 9:30 in the morning and did not return until late at night.

They Are Kefore Judfa EiiRmioger In o i ice court loilnj. Three bad colored women were in the police court today for an offense which like a multitude of other offenses is con cealed under the charge of "disorderly conduct." These women were Alary V ade, Carrie Alexander and Annie Bai ley. They sauntered into court with the tread of a tired Coxeyite. Alary Wade is 21 years old and thin; and when she walks one can almost de tect the rattling of dry bones. Carrie Alexander surveyed the audience with one sweeping glance of recognition and then settled down on the bench like a 300-pound man on a stool at a lunch counter. Annie Bailey is a comparative stranger and she smiled at his honor like an old maid tryinjr to coax a smile out of a baby. They said they were not guilty of dis orderly conduct but Sergeant Steele con vinced the court that they had erred in their judgment as well as decorum and the Wade woman was lined $10, and the other two were fined $13 each. Sergeant Steele told the court that the women took considerable hop-tea, pale malt and other nom de plumes for booze to the k City park with them and proceeded to get drunk. Then they gave a little variety show that waa decidedly noisy and savored too strongly of the Lily Clay aggregation. They stood on their heads and turned summersaults. The police say the city park is becoming too much of a disreputable resort and they are anxious to make the place respectable. Other Cases. William AIcAIichael, the colored man with only one leg who was arrested yes terday afternoon for keeping a liquor joint on Kansas avenue between Eighth and Ninth, had his case continued until tomorrow. Robert Ransom was fined $3 for fight ing. Clarence AIcDow,ell, a runaway boy from the Reform school, was captured by Sergeant Donovan and turned over to the school today. Nick Keeler had a fight last night with the night-watchman at Wolff's packing house. He was charged with assault today and acquitted as the evi dence showed the other man was the ag gressor. James Arterbridge was charged with contempt of court for failing to respond to a subpoena served by Sergeant Steele in the Carrie Johnson case. Arterbridge claims he was sick, which is doubt ful. The case was continued in order to give both sides a chance to subpoena witnesses regarding his health on last Wednesday, the day in question. Press Johnson was charged with being drunk, but acquitted. Dave Britton waa fined $5 on the same charge. Charles Crowley of Holton was re leased from the insane asylum yesterday as cured, and was given a railroad ticket home. Ou his way to the depot he stepped into a joint on the lower part of Kansas avenue and drank heavily of something that contained more than two per cent of alcohol. He became very drunk and the liquor seemed to give his convalescing brain a relapse. He tore up his railroad ticket and went up to see AIiss Ida Codey and inaugurated a "rough house." Officer Campbell was summoned, and as the officer used to work at the asylum he recognized Crow ley. Today he was fined $5. He will probably be returned to the state insane asylum. STATE FINANCES.
