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

Robert Downing is by marriage a dis

during the time he was studying for the

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."

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

will commence proeeedings after the

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

she has only six lines, but she handlea

much for her.

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

request was granted.
What is one of the largest colored at

rag-time musical comedy travesty, ,
which will be Seen at the New Craw

. 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

"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,

Siguatwre of
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.
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."
"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:

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.
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.
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
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.

and had been 29 years in the service of
the company working his way from ati
humble position to that of general agent.
