Robert Dosvning, the tragedian, ap peared at the Grand opera house yes terday afternoon and evening in "Ingoman- and -Richard the Lion Hearted" respectively. Miss Alberta Converse who portrayed the part of Parthenia at the afternoon performance suffered much from the cold. She held the stage a greater' portion of the time during the first act. Miss COn verse grew so cold that her teeth chat tered but nevertheless she proved her self to be a capable actress and at no time did the audience fail to take every Ppportunity to show its appreciation of her delincation of the character. Monday night the company played in Atchison. There the accommodations were bad, in fact, very bad, according to accounts given by members of Mr. Downing's COMpany. miss Converse said: Through some misunderstanding the star's dressing room was given to some of the members of the company and we were put in a, little box with no mirrors. washbasins or anything. arid besides, the room was an outside one, and the one window had - - - - - 3; ,: - ' -,:i4.-- ,,f-e ) -,,--. ,,,,.--, ,e if MISS ALEERTA CONVERSE.

We all caught colds during the performance, and." re ferring to the temperature of the Grand "f. think this is not calcula,ted to do our cohlst any good." Robert Downing is by marriage a dis tant relation of Bishop Milispaugh of this city. Ills first Wife, whom, he met during the time he was studying for the etage. was a cousin, once removed. of Mr. Millspaug-h. Mr. Downing- when Seen by a State. Journal reporter said he did not know that Bishop atillspaugh resided here. "In fact," said he. "I did not learn much of my wife's family be fore her death and I did not know that she had a relative in Topeka." Eugenie Blair who comes to the Craw foed temorrow night is Mr. Downing's second wife.. They ihave not lived as man and wife for a considerable tiMe Mts.'s, Blair attempted to brin,g- suit bir divorce from Mr. Downing nearly a year ago. 'but," said air. Downing, "she did not hove grounds. for divorce and the case did not come up for trial." Will the divorce proceedings; ever crime up again'?" asked the reporter. "Well. undoubtedly so. I expect to begin the proceedings myself in the siding. "No. she did not have grounds for divorce; it was I who had the groands. and the case will have to be broueht by me." he continued absent-mindedly. "I will commence proeeedings after the end of this season." aliss Alberta Converse, Mr. Downing's leading lady. has been on the profes sieratl stage only two years, but she has already proven herself an actress of un usual ability. Miss Converse has a. charming naive manner. original with bet-self, which is refreshing to see in these daya of imitation and copying. The itinerary of Mr. Downing'S tour ineludes Oskaloosa, Iowa, the city where Miss Converse was born and lived. Alte Downing's daughter is traveling -with him. This is her first seas.on on the stage, and she is playing ingenue parts. In the production of "Ingoanar" she has only six lines, but she handlea them with a. cleverness which promises much for her.

COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS. -- Eugenie Blair Will bring "A Toady of Quality," under the direction of Henri Grei,sit. to this city on Thursday, Janu ary 3. for the engagement at the New Crawford. Miss Blair's success with the play in the east at the beginning of this sea son. including- the ovation she received in Baltimore during her week's engage ment there at Ford's theater, and her cordial reception and approbation in Torontothat stronghold of julia Ar thur'swit! add considerable glory to her other engagements. throughout the season. The play hag been magnificently staged, from costumes and scenery down to the merest detail, all under Miss Blair's personal supervision. The cast selected by Miss Blair for the pre sentation of the different parts includes many well known names, among them James Carew, late of Frohman's, and Eleanor Monte who made such a sue CeSS as Lady Betty Tantilliort tit Miss Blair's opening in NEW -York this sea son. The entire production has been taken on the road exactly as pro-dueed in New York. Miss Blair's costumes this year are more elaborate than the new- ones she had last t,,ason. Many women of posi tiOn in society in New York, Baltimore and Toronto have freely commented upon their elegance and beauty. In this connection an interesting story is be ing, told of the beautiful light blue gown Miss Blair wears in the third a,ct. A poor sewing girl in New York, employed by tbe costumers and modistes who had charge of the work of putting the gown together front the materials Miss Blair hal imparted earlier in the year, came to the Grand opera house in New York one night and asked for Miss Blair's representative. To him she told the story of having- worked on some small detail in connection with the creation of the gown. and asked for a pass that she might Fee .3.1-iFS Blair wearing' the cos tume. She htvi not money enough to purchase, a seat Needless to say, her request was granted. What is one of the largest colored at tractions that has visited the west is the "Hottest Coon in Dixie." the latest rag-time musical comedy travesty, , which will be Seen at the New Craw ford tonight. This organization in elude. in its personnel many of the fore . most of the colored singers, comedians and specialty artists of that race, names that have been prominently identified with about all of the big "coon" shows in the east for the past five years. In the cast of comedians and comediennes Will 1,E. found the names of Bob Kelly, Wm. H. Proctor, Billy Cole. the Grun dies, Fred T. Carey, Wm. Dixon. Eddie Harris, James and Sallie Douglass, Mor ris Smith, Mss Neale G. Hawkins, Clara. Bell Carey. Bessie Hamilton, Mollie Minor. George Dobbs, Bessie Kinney, Maude Grundy. The famous original "Clorindy" chorus of colored male and female singers, that for sixteen weeks was the rage at the -.New 'York Casino roof garden, is also a. feature of "The Hottest Coon in Dixie," a,nd will be heard in nearly a score of the catchiest of the "coon" melodies. The, costuming is rich and tasteful and the girls pretty. No one need wonder why Mrs. Fiske, who comes to the Crawford Friday night, has aehieved in her new play, "Becky Sharp," a greater triumph than that by COMMOTI consent conceded te her in "Tess of the D'Brbervillea" Taking the Hardy story, with the ore. ation of the novelist so opposed phys ically to anything' at first apparent in this g-reat actress. she so assimilated the- humanity and so mastered- the psye etiology of the character that at once her personation was hailed as a, creation not second to that of the novelist. al though riot physieally like that of the novelist's description. It proved again the dominance of a, great artist over the material and the superficial Mrs. Fiske described the soul of "Tess," and made known the very kernel of the character In "Becky Sharp," on the other hand. the actress has a character that fits her as though created to her order. Azaistically and in. fact she seems the very Becky. Hall Caine's great play, "The Chris tian," is announced for an engagement at the Grand opera house, Friday night. The PlaY is not in an ordinary sense a, dramatic version cf "The Christian." "The author has taken the two principal characters of the novel, Et,9 well as the motive of their relations to ea,ch other, and made an independent drama of new incidents and fresh surroundings--just as he might have taken two characters from history and constructed thereon a play which would otherwise have no claims to historical truths. The two principal characters of this drama rep resent, the author thinks, types which have be-en brought into existence by the latter half of the nineteenth century: the educated girl who has to fight the battle of life in professions which are usually controlled by men, the young clergyman who makes an effort to re alize in a liberal sense the precepts of the l-zermon on the Mount. But the so cial and religious problems which sur round the steps of these characters in the novel are not dwelt upon in the play. which is simply a story of love," were the words by which Hall Caine in troduced his play to the public in New York city, May Lead to Shooting.

CASTOR IA - For Infants and Children. Iti3 Kid Yu Nye Always Eiluz fit nears the 17----7..1-- Siguatwre of IMPRESSIVE BEA UT Y. - Grand Canon of the Colorado to Be Discussed Tomorrow Evening. Much interest is manifested in the lec ture on the 'Grand Canon of Arizona" to be given in the First Christian church,' under the auspices of the Ladies' Music club on Thursday evening. Mr. Brigham has given the greatest satisfaction with the lecture in San Francisco, Denver, Salt Lake City, Omaha and the prin cipal cities cf the east. The lecture tomorrow evening will be gin at S:30 o'clock. Mr. Brigham comes in from Denver in the afternoon. Speak ing of Mr. Erigham's lecture the Salt Lake City Herald says: The lecture is more than worth hear ing: one can not afford to miss it. The subject, stupendous as it is, has never been. handled better, and this declara tion is made after reading practically all that has bet,n written about the canon. The descriptions of the extent, the beauty, the giandeur and the mar velous coloring of the great gorge are wonderful word-paintings. To give an adequate idea of the scenery along the Colorado would require the eloqueneeof an archangel, but so far as an. ordinary mortal may find expression for over whelming impressions, Mr. Brigham has come near the impossible and g,iven wonderfully comprehensive, vivid pic ture of Arizona's marvel. No better thing- could be said of the V ieWS illus trating the lecture than to say they harmonized both in beauty and impres siveness. The coloring of the canon which has always. been the despair of pairters and orators alikeis given with most remarkable fidelity to nature. Al- , together the lecture is a. most satisfac tory substitute for the treat of a real visit to the canonand no higher praise could be paid it. SHOW OF STIMIGTH. Burton Supporters Are Being Hurried to Topeka. The legislators are coming In today and the senatorial contest is warming' up in proportion as they come in. The friends of the tlko candidates were on the watch and as fast as the members arrived at the Copeland they were seen" by the men who are helping run things for the senatorial aspirants. Senator Baker and J. R. Burton were both at the Copeland all day and could be found in the lobby or at their rooms. It was the first day of the beginning' of the end of the contest and it seemed to be in the air. Both sides are seeming ly confident of victory, but they will riot give out the names of the men who are supposed to vote for them. Of course the names of the instructed legislators are given as they have been, but no new names are added to the list. The Burton men are the first in the field and a large majority of the ar rivals today are credited to Burton by both sides- The Burton men sa,y that it was not prearranged that they should hurry to Topeka, but it looks as if they were trying to make a show of strength by getting their men in first. Among the arrivals today were H. C. Snyder of Chase. O. Jolliffe of Marion, F. M. Emmons of Riley,RobertDougher ty of Harvey, 3.1. A. Wilson of Jefferson, J. A. Kennedy of Coff:y, J. P. Sweet of Coffey, Steve Cave of Haskell, Senator Albert Henley of Doualas, Emil Orooser of Dickinson. W. T. Short of Cloud.Sen ator W. S. Fitzpatrick of Chautauqua, Ir. S. Griffin of Jefferson. Albert Sar bach of Jackson. George P. Hayden of Nemaha. The Burton men claim that all of these men are on their side except ing Hayden, Griffin. IA ilson and Sar bach. They are probably right for most of them were pronounced Burton men before the election. The Baker forces are making- few claims of the members who are here. C.'S. Jobes says: -We are saying nothing and sa,wing wood." OUT OF SEASON. - "Harvest" Pxoursions Now Passing Through Topeka. Traffic resulting from another of the "harvest excursion" series, which weie started from points east of the river yesterday, was going through Topeka on the railroads today. It is a. trifle incongruous to have "har vest excursions" on the go in zero weather. Some of the roads still refer to them by this anachronistic appella tion, however. Others call them home seekers' excursions. Some of the travelers. are going to vvestern Kansas and Colorado points. They will find anything but ilarvest weather out there just nOW. On the western division of the Rock Island at 10 o'clock this morning, the temperature was reported at 4 degrees below zero. The century came in in that same coun try with a. decidedly frigid reception. The same division reported that the mercury had been down to 24 degrees below zero. Oklahoma. homeseekers on the Rock Island caused No. 2 ta be double-headed out of here last night and No.1 came in in two sections today. The Arctic weather does not seem to have dismayed the "harvest" excursion ers in the least. The Santa Fe also re ports having originated a heavy busi ness and all their equipment. is in ser vice. Additional cars are on all trains and some of them are doubled up. New Charters. This was a good day for charters. The secretary of state issued five this morn ing as follows: The Union Trust company, of Kansas City. Kan. Capital, $10.000: directors. Willard Meriam, Frank S. Ellis, Arthur Benton, C. H. Carpenter.

New York Ministers Flan For a Na tional Movement. New York, Jan. 2.Over 200 ministers and prominent laymen attended the meeting' held today in the Twenty-third street branch of the Young Men's Chris tian association in reeponse to the call issued by William Philips Hall of this city, in order that the plans for the holding of a national gospel campaign mig-ht be discussed and outlined. Mr. Hall presid,,:cl. -William R. Moody of East Northfield, Mass., a son of the late evangelist, said that the twentietb century needed the gospel to heal the broken hearts, of which there were millions. All appreci ated that need. At the present time all eyes we4re turned- toward religion and there :was greater need of its teaching. than ever before. The most Iturcessfut works of fiction of the present day, he said, were those discussing the works of Christ.' People read them because they ale interested. Mr. Moody applauded the idea of hold ing revival set-vices in this city and ad vised that consecutive sessions be held. Every minister- should be an -evangelist and conduct revivals VI his OWn church or, if better results could be obtained; ministers should exchange pulpits. Rev. -Dr. George T. Purves of the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian church ad vocated the holding of revivals and sug gested that they be held in every evan gelical church in the city, as did Revs. DaVid J. Burrell and J. Wilbur Chapman. MILWAUKEE TO BE PURGED -- Ittnaisters1 Association to Begin Cru sade Against Lawlessness. Milwaukee, Wis., Jan. 2.--This city 'is also to ha,ve its crusade against vice and lawlessness. That was agreed upon at the meeting of the Milwaukee Min isters' association this morning. Just -what course it will take is uncertain. A committee of five was appointed to call upon business men and ask their aid in getting- up a mass meeting which would protest against violations of the law. It is intended that this mass meet ing shall petition the mayor to exert his influence to put a, stop to lawless TIPSS and vice. In the discussion it was suggested that the mayor might well be asked to en force the Wiley law, which prohibits poolrooms and was used to close up Ideal park when that place, just over the line, was a resort much patronized by Chicago gamblers. It is a fact be yond contradiction that poolrooms are now running ill this city th, spite of that law and the mayor is blamed for it. It is the constant contention of May.,r Rose that the town, because it is wide open" in a way, is the most orderly in the country. and that these concessions must be made, under proper restrictions,. in every large city. rArAL INITIATION PRANK. Widow of a Elan Who Died of His In juries Gets $4,000 Damages. Carbonda.le, Jan. 2.R. O. Deason, a saloonkeeper, living at Desoto, a. small mining town six miles north of this city, died several months ago of injuries re ceived while being, initiated into the Knights of the Royal Arch. This order is composed exclusively of liquor dealers and has grown to large proportions. In the ceremonies of initiation a paddle was used, having on one side a blank cartridge. The user of the paddle acci dentally turned the side with the cart ridge attached and the wad was im bedded in Deason's thigh. Two days after the ceremony Deason died of blood poisoning. Mrs. Deason brought Suit to recover damages. alleging carelessness on the part of those who participated in the in itiation. The case was recently decided in favor of the widow. The jury gave her $4,000,. General Agent Hill is Dead. Philadelphia, Jan. 2.--Samuel V. R. Hill, general agent of the Adams Ex press company in this city, died at hiS home today. Death was due to pleura pneumonia. He was a,bout 58 years old and had been 29 years in the service of the company working his way from ati humble position to that of general agent.
