Famous Comic Opera Organiza tion to Sing The Viceroy." Things of Interest About Plays and Players. AT THE CRAWFORD. Tonight, The Bostonians, in "The Hoyt's "A Stranger in New York," January 7. Herrmann the Magician, January 9. Walker Whiteside, January 10. "My Friend from India," January 11. "O'Hooligan's 'Wedding," January 12. The new comic opera, "The ViceroY," to be presented by The Bostonia,ns, at th9 Crawford tonight, enlists the entire strength uf the company in its presen tation. Chief among the figures is that beautiful young soprano, Hilda Clark, who, by the, wa3,-, is a Leavenworth glrl, 17, 110 will be heard here after a sea son's study abroad in the role of Tivo lin', a dashing young corsaIr chief tain. As the action of the opera. is laid in the fifteenth century, on the Sicilian coast, admirable, opportunities have Hilda Clark, of the Bostonians, been given the costumer for picturesque display in the scarlet and silver doublet and fleshings of this character. It will be the first role in which this young' prima donna has ever appeared in tights, and it was only after many diplomatic negotiations that she was in duced to assume the role. Among the newcomers of the Bosto nians is Albert Parr, a handsome young tenor, who has created a sensa,tion by Lis forceful rendition of the ballad "Jost for a Day," one, of the features in this opera Adele Rafter, a, beautiful young contralto., v,-ill also be heard in this Walker Whiteside. opera. as will also Barnabee. MacDon ald, Frothingharm and others ot the famous g-roup of singers. Mr, 'MacDonald, who was seen with the Bostonians last year, has added an other triumph to his long list of sue essses in the song "Eves of Black and cit7 Lillie," written esnecially fix him. He is ft I SO very effective In a humorous hornpipe sung- by a quartette cormflosed of Barnabee, Fitzgerald, Martin and himself. -The Viceroy." which has never poen sung here, is said to be the most got,- grous production ever made by The Postonians. anii its cast Will enlist the complete singing forces of this company riinforced by a chorus of fifty and spe cial orchestra under the direction of S.

As a magician the present Herr miinn has acquired a reputation for re markable expertness in palming, it. ore ating, illusions, and in doing many things popularly- accredited as possiide ofily by the Prince of Darkness himself He th-wif. so many things. that are really mystifying that he arouses curiosity and sustains interest. Again he does not rely wholly upon his own a,bility as an expontnt of magic to amuse his au diences. His programme also, introduces, the rive Mein ,70,1S Of a, famous musical family.

The present Herrmann's tricks are old and new; some cf them original with him, others familiar to those who saw his famous umLle. He mystifies his audiences just like his predecessor did. He fools their vision by sleight-of-hand work and unseen and tinguessed agen CiPS, and qn the same proportion that they are illusioned thev are pleased. , This Herrmann, like his great uncle, "re veals what he conceals and concea,ls what he reveals" so cleverly,- that all the admiration and enthusiasm accorded the fwmi-ler of the black and mystic art in the family goes out to him, as though the dead had risen and was behind the footlights again. "STRANGER IN NEW :YORK" noyt's "A Stranger in New York" comes to the Crav,-ford I'donday night. This farce is claimed to be one of the brightest efforts of the late Charles Hoyt, and the claim has apparently been substantiated for it is certainly one of the most popular of all comedies. This season's production is said to be up to the mark set by the author and a complete new scenic environment is used to add to the pretty picture and as an effective setting for the handsome cos tumes called for throughout the action of the play. Particularly the second and third acts, which introduce the French Ball scene. The story, vvhich is familiar to theater-goers, is that of a stranger in our largest city, who by accident finds a letter addressed to a well-known member of the smart set of Ness, York city. The stranger delivers the letter, ricA knowing its contents, which intro duces a Chicago man of prominence who has come to New York for a. good time and who lost the letter. The natural inference of the recipient la. that the bearer is the one mentioned in the letter, a rid, without allowing the stranger to explain, he is Immediately introduced into the set and started into a round of gayeties for which New York is famous, Windin" up with a, night at the French ball at'Madison Square Gar den. It is easy to see what an oppor 11, , 3 ;;71,- 4, 1 , , - ...1X, Z 127 ',,y A V ,14 1, ; 4 q;: '1 9 Herrmann, the Magician. tunity is here presented for amusing complications. and mistaken identities and it is needless to say that they- have been brought out in a manner produc tive of the very best results and insuring- the heartiest laug:hter and applause. The dialogue is brisk and witty, the ac tion always quick, and brilliant music with entertaining specialties are inter spersed at frequent intervals -throughout the unfolding' of the story. It con tains a slam On Topeka, wbich Topeka, doesn't like. The company is headed by the McCoy sisters and Sam Marion. who have been with the Hoyt attractions for several years. having been featured with the' original company in this play, They have just returned from the Australian tour of -A Stranger in New, York," and besides the parts they play are introducing- a new departure in terpsichore that is a, decided success and most artistic. Rain E. Kearney is the "Stranger." His methods are thoroughly clever anti hi comedy productive of much that s him a worthy successor to those whom be follows in that rojp. WALKER WHITESIDE. The announcement of Walker White side at the Crawford next Thursday is made. Mr. Whiteside visited Topeka last year in "The Red Cockade." He played Topeka twice before irt "Ham let." MY FRIEND FROM INDIA. My Friend From India" will again visit Topeka on Friday night and the week's amusements will end Saturday night with "O'HooligaWs Wedding.", Looking Backward. This has been a really impurtant week in Topeka from a theatrical standpoint. Of cours:e the most important feature of the week was Mrs. Minnie Maddern Fiske's appearance in "Becky Sharp." One can not help admiring this dainty little American actress who haa display ed such wondetful nerve. Standing as she in the Nery front rank of her profession. he has refused to surrender her art to the dictates of a powerful, wealthy and relentless comoination of manaers, knowing that she would suf fer financial loss in consequence. One after another the stars were gathered in, but Mra Fiske stamped her pretty fooc, snapped her finger in their faces and told them to let her alone. They didn't do it and have since made thing's rather uncomfortable for her, but she continues on the even tenor of her waY uncomplainingly. Her manager asked for a date in Kansas City this season. It was refused because the Kansas City managers were afraid of the syndicate and so Mrs. Fiske went around Kansas City; That is why Topeka got-her and Kansas City didn't. What a. finished pie-ce of work is her Becky Sharp! Could anyone portray Thackeray's famous character half 60 well? Ails. Fiske is always womanly. She never oversteps the boundaries and one sees in her the living embodiment 'If Becky Sharp and her associates. It is as if the book had become endowed with life and, as the pages are turned before our eyes, there appear the moving ba ings of whom we have before only been granted brief mental pictures. Then there was Robert Downing, who is growing fat as he grows older. He still wears the same bland like expres sion, -has tile same mellifluous voice which argues that he might be a suc cess in light opera. He always has seem ed a trifle out of place as a, tragedian and at last he says he is going to try comedy. The transition from Ingamar to modern comedy is not great and perhaps Mr. Downing will be a success,but those who have seen Louis James wallowing around in comedy roles will have little hope for Mr. Downingstill the leap will not be such a long one. Mr. Down ing was not seen to an advantage in To peka this season because the Grand Opera. House where he appeared was so cold and the people were wondering continually whether he would not be frozen into an icicle at any moment. His leading lady,Miss ..A.lberta Converse, gives promise of a brilliant future. 1:e. some one Will take her by the hand or hair and drag her out of the so-called "romantic drama" she may be heard from. She is pretty and shows a keen conception of her lines. The second appearance of Eugenie Blair in Topeka in "A Lady of Quality was not the success it should have been. The other attractions received the lion's share but, nevertheless, Miss Blair is a success. Her Clorinda Wildairs is an excellent piece of work and to those who did not see Julia Arthur in the part Miss Blair is an excellent substitute. "The Christian" came to Topeka for the first time last night. To be sme Miss Viola Allen was not here--not evea Ellie Ells ler, but some effort was ex pended in securing the cast and the production was as a whole satisfactory. The company is one of the largest that ha-s been here this season and had it not been for the fact that the play was booked for the same night as Mrs. Fiske the audience would have been large. STRAUSS ORCHESTRA COXING. - Will Be at the Grand Opera House on January 16. The Strauss orchestra has been se cured for one night, January 16, at the Grand opera house. This is the second tour in AmeHca of Eduard Strauss, he having visited the country in 1890, when he gave sixty-one grand concerts in all the large cities, and was received by immense crowds with acclamation and delight On the present tour he will perform in over one hundred cities in the United States, Mexico and Canada. Eduard Strauss is the youngest of the three Strauss brothers (Johann, Josef and Eduard), sons of the great Johann Strauss, the founder of the famous Strauss orchestra in 1823. The Emperor of Austria has long been the patron and admirer of the Strauss family, and he has distinguished them with the heredi tary title of imperial and royal musicAl director of Austria-Hungary, Eduard Strauss having held that exalted posi tion since 1872. He ha,s been a. hard worker in the art of music for nearly forty years. and has traveled all over the world. -Without counting the thou sands of concerts he has given in Vienna., Holland and Scandinavia. he has been three times in London, twice in St. Petersburg, sixteen times in Ber lin, sixteen in Munich and seventeen in Cologne. His great orchestra, has per Samuel Marion, Hoyt's A Stranger in New York." formed a,t fourteen international expo sitions and at all the great courts of Europe. In the last twenty-two years he has visited over eight hundred cities in two hemispheres. He is commander, officer. or knight of twelve orders of knighthood, and has received valuable presents from thirty-two different mon archs. His personal musical composi tions aggregate three hundred pcpular pieces, and over two hundred arrange ments of opera and concert pieces. Such immense work speaks for itself. MP four members of the Strauss fam ily have, since 1823, given to the wcorld of music more than 1.500 works. all of which have become famous and popu lar. The Strauss- v,altzes are the class ics of the dance. The ba,nd is composed of fifty of the specially selected or-, chestra players of Germany, who ha,ve worked under hia baton for many years, and their grand work has made, them famous all over the face of the globe. IT IS A DRANT. Stage Contest of Pugilists Fitsimmons and J'effries. A New York Teleg-raph sporting edi tor has given pen to the following dra matic criticism: New Yorkers have re cently had an opportunity to compare the histrionic abilities of two of our greatest actorsJames J. Jeffries and Robert Fitzsimmons. In the --Honest Blacksmith" Fitzsimmons has shown natural talent and an earnestness of purpose very commendable. At tiraes he rises to the dramatic heights and posi tively thrills his. auditors. This is quite noticeable in the scene wherein he tosses ..1 ...., ,S-4,:.---' . -.....-"'''":-. :,.... , . :-,;:i-',."1;1.1:;4'14'(1 -,:f.--------7:::,;:;:,-.

In the lighter scenes, notably that in which he shoes a horse, Fitz simmons developed a vein of bubbling comedy that was decidedly refreshing. On the whole, Fitzsimmons' perform ance is a crus,hing refutation of the the ory that a tighter knows oniy enough to fight. On the other hand, Jeffries, while inc. the vivacity and humorous elasticity orhis rival, deports himself with a re pressiort that is most admirable. Al though able to vanquish all his foes, yet he restrains himself and overwhelms them by his majestic mien He is some what handicapped by being compelled by the author to save the worst actor in the play. However Jeffries bears up well and emerges triumphantly at the windup. After a dispassionate survey of the points scored by both men I feel con strained to declare the bouta. draw. HAIR TURNED GlEtEEN. - New York Soubrette Has an Unpleas ant Experience. New York, Jan. Verona, a soubrette, of No. 132 East Seventeenth street, a few months ago decided that ber personal appearance would be im proved if she could tint her naturally golden hair a russet hue. She according ly purchased a concoction known as powdered henna leaves and applied it in solution with the desired effect. Miss Verona. a, week a,go yesterday de cided to apply it a,gain, and at the drug store of John Kiehl, Third avenue and Thirteenth street, purchased some pow dered henna. leaves. Ilnat evening she applied the compound in solution to her hair. The next morning on arising Miss Verona looked in a mirror and fell in a fainther hair had turned a brilliant green. Her friends came in, condoled with her to her face and laughed hilariously be hind her back- Miss Verona shed bitter tears and spent the greater share of two da,ys and three nights in an effort to wash the green tint out, but all efforts proved unavailing'. Various hairdressers experimented with strands of the green hair and said they were sorry for Miss Verona Ex pert chemists told her the only thing she could do was to have it dyed jet black Then Miss Verona got angry and w-ent down to see her lawyer, M. Strassrnan, of No. 853 Broadway, who brought suit against Mr. Kiehl for $5,000 damages. Mr. Kiehl told a. reporter yesterday that Miss Verona purchased the powder ed henna leaves without telling him for what purpose. "She had beautiful golden hair," said Mr. Kiehl, "but when she came in next day it was as green as parsley. We have had the preparation anal3rzed and hnl it to be pure. In ordinary circumstances it would impart a reddish hue to yellow hair, but in this case it seems to have turned it green. Had the young woman told me what she intended doing with it I would have advised her against 11S - ing it, since it has powerful astringent properties and its peculiar qualities are not really understood by the best of chemists." MISS GLASER'S JEWEL-- It Came From a Nobleman Under Pe culiar Circumstances. Lulu Glaser is the possessor of a jewel, the history of which makes a good story. It was given to her during the early days of her association with the Francis Wilson Opera. company with which. she was seen in Topeka last sea son. They were playing "The Lion Tamer" in Omaha and working their way to the Pa,cific coast. During the fifst night of the Omaha engagement the soubrette noticed a young man sitting in the front row of the orchestra chairs who kept his eyes fixed on her and smiled divinely all the time she was singing. The young woman had heard of the masher class, and thought here was an example. He came every night and pur sued the same tactics. In San Francisco on the opening night there sat the same srniling youth. One night she received a note from the man whom she had thought was smitten with, her. Ve-ith it came the jewel, and the stranger said he was sailing next day for China, but wished to thank her for giving him EO many pleasant hours. His name was appended. Inquiry re vealed these facts: He wa,s an Italian of rank making a tour of the world and he was stone blind! DOWNING IN COMEDY. - Wilt Appear This Season in "Paris in 1793." Robert Downing, who was seen in Topeka this week in "Ing-omar" and "Richard the Lion-hearted," contem plates entering comedy. His tour has been arranged so that he Will play in Indianapolis, Ind.. in three weeks. Following his engagement there he will again make a tour through the west in a new comedy called "Paris in 1793." It was prepared especially for him, and a,s the name implies gives ample opportunity for striking anti clever situa,tions. Mr. Downing antici pates great success with his new piece. "Ingomar" Will be reconstructed, and Will be used for matinees. SAPHO'S NEW ROLE. -- Miss Lillian Atwood Has a New Play This Season. Lillian Atwood who was seen in To peka during the latter part of last sea son in a, version of "Sapho" is this year starring in a new play called "For Her Sake." It is a Russo-Sitkerian play and does not differ greatly from "Michael Edna Wallace-Hopper's Great Scene in the Second Act 6,Florodora" Is a Ripping Hit. i 1 , , -." . -, - . , , , . , , ,,, , .

Again the rumor comes that Ellen Terry has decided to retire from the stage at the end of Ilenry Irving's next Lyceum season. This is a perennial af fair. A, stage hand named Canfield, with the Bernhardt-Coquelin company, was injured by falling- scenery a, few days ago. When Bernhardt heard of it she sent $10 to the injured man. Edwin Arden as Metternich fainted during- a, performance of "L'Aiglon"with Maude Adams a few days ago. IT t3 place was taken without rehearsal by Clayton Legge and the part was well played. The "booing" habit of first-rxighters in London is being discussed Oil every side by players. playwrights and CrititS of the British metropolis. Wilson Bar rett is just out in an indictment of the custom. Charles Dalton wants a new play to relieve him of the monotony of "The Sign of the Cross." The week before Christmas was an idle week with him, and he spent it in New York in search of a, new play. Bronson Ifoward's "Shena,ndoah" is at last to be given to the English stage, but it is to be adapted and dressed to the circumstances of the case and called "Ladysmith." Mr. Howard may have something to sa,y about this. - The announcement comes from Chicago that Julia, Arthur is done with the stage, and those who had hoped to see this youthful actress climb to a famous posi tion will be disappointed. Her husband made the announcement in a heartlessly blunt way, and seemed glad of it. -Madame Rejane has just scored a suc cess in a, play which even in Paris they say is too wicked for her. There are other things to advertise it, however, for a thief pretending to be an electrician en tered Rejane's apartments a few days ago and got away with some money and jew elry. "The Mormon 'Wife" is the name of a play which is to take advantage of the prominence which the sect of Utah has re cently enjoyed and will shortly be pro duced. It is the work of Charles E. Bla ney and Madeline Mer Mr. Blaney will probably deal out some Mormon sensa tions. Mr. and Mrs. Nat C. Goodwin have com bined upon the definite announcement that they will produce "The Merchant of Venice" at the Knickerbocker Theater in February. With Mansfield as Henry V, Sothern as Hamlet and Nat Goodwin as Shy lock can we assert that Shakespeare is neglected? Della Fox was given a, great ovation the other night in making her first ap pearance after her sudden weddim-, was a, stolen march upon alC of her friends. She has not decided to retire from the vaudeville stage immediately, however. for vaudeville patrons have treated her kindly. Charles IL Yale says there is no more expensive bra,nch of the theatrical busi ness than that of producing- spectacular extravaganza Every season, no matter how successful the piece is, new SeelliC effects must be contrived and new specialties secured. It is to this idea that Mr. Yale attributes the SUCCeSS he has won in "The Devil's Auction' and the other spectacular pieces that he ha,s given. There must be truth in his assertion. for it will be remembered that in spite of the tremendous success that David Henderson achieved his expense was so great that he finally succumbed. Lev,-is Morrison will soon revisit Topeka. with his old production. "Faust." Charles J. Ross has left Weber & Fields. He claimed that because Ite was up in his part there was no need of attending a rehearsal, but the management thought otherwise and asked him to attend or re sign. The comedians faced a postpone ment, but lively hustling produced Fritz Williams, who hurriedly studied and went Londoners the British to shower sequins upon the capital, is drawing crowded ''''- r ' 1 t .
