The Arion Prima ic t'ompnnjr Presented
tli. 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

Mrs. Garvey's "At Home."
Mrs. IL O. 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.
Mrs. Garvey'a gown was pale blue
China Bilk with white lace flounces.
The ladies who assisted in entertain
ing generally, were Mrs. Chas. K. Holli
day, Mrs. Willard Davis. Mrs. R. L. Nes
baum, Mrs. IL E. Overholt, Mrs. J. A.
Troutmau, Mrs. Frank Willard, Mrs.
Will Garvey and Miss Caro Demming.
Alumni BaceptUn.
Instead of the annual alumni banquet
it was decided this year to give a recep
tion instead, and at Library hall last
evening the high school students of the
present day as well as the graduates of
many years ago, met and renewed ac
quaintance. 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
Among the picnic parties on Decora'
tion day was one to Silver Lake, which
leit town at about 9:30 in the morning

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
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
