The new comic opera, "The ViceroY,"
to be presented by The Bostonia,ns, at

strength uf the company in its presen

beautiful young soprano, Hilda Clark,
who, by the, wa3,-, is a Leavenworth

son's study abroad in the role of Tivo

in the fifteenth century, on the Sicilian

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.

Mr, 'MacDonald, who was seen with
the Bostonians last year, has added an
other triumph to his long list of sue

and his conversational patter while per
forming his feats of magic is not the
least diverting feature of his-entertainment.
.
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

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

a. 190-pound Villain through a window,
carrying away sash and glass (papier
mache). 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

Theatrical Notes.
- When Coque lin returns to Paris he in
tends producing "Quo Vadis."
Yvette Guilbert is so far recovered
that her reappearance at the Bodiniere
is announced.
Ricvhard Mansfield laid the corner
stone of the new Garrick theater, Phila
delphia, December 20.
Mary Mannering went through the
first week of "Janice Meredith" suffer
ing from severe throat trouble, but
pluckily kept up her work.
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
