Alberta Gallatin Greatly I'leases Topeka Andieuce. A Perfect Portrayal of Vivacious Nell Gwynn. EARNS CURTAIN CALLS. Simplicity and Naturalness Her Charm. Says 31 rs. Nation Would Mate Dime 31useum Freak. Without a piece of special scenery and dependent only upon her acting Al berta Gallatin scored a decided triumph at the Grand last night as the vivacious "Nell Gwynn," who has lately been re vived by the histotians and playwrights. It was Miss Gallatin's efforts alone whicl decided the success of the per formance. After the third act she re ceived three curtain calls and was warmly applauded during the last act. It seems that Cator Heverin, who is re sponsible for the historical comedy drama, has wasted opportunities in the first two acts. They are not particularly strong, and beyond giving "Nell Gwynn" and -"Charles Stuart, king of Kngland," a chance to display their true characters and to reveal the plot against the king, tnere is very little in the two acts, and the audience may begin to wonder if "Nell Gwynn," the passionate, frivolous and most talked of woman in Kngland of her time, is to go on through the four acts without any opportunities. There are opportunities, however, and Miss Gallatin mads the most of them. In the third act, in the apartments of "Lord Buckhurst," where the plotters of the king have entrapped him, "Nell Gwynn," heretofore the mischievous maid, be comes a woman; a woman full of loyalty and love and ready to sacrifice herself for the life and honor of her lover, the king. She is Mistress Nelly of old Drury no longer, and no longer the silly nillv companion of the courtiers and Charles Stuart, but the defender of the king. The last act. at the "Crowing Hen Inn," is where the audience does not wait for the curtain to fall but applauds right in the midst of the excitement as "Nell Gwvnn" dances before the drunken allies of "Wye" in order to gain time that the king may be rescued.- In the wild abandon of the dance, as she dodges around the room to the plaudits and Jibes of the drunken ruffians, snap pin? her fingers in time to the reckless fandango. and smiling as bewitchingly at the swains as she did at the lords and ladies, the climax to the short story of Sw eet Nell of old Drury !s reached, and Heverin is forgiven and his reason un derstood for making the first two acts vehicles for the heroine's piquancy as a contrast to her strength and cunning in the last. Miss Gallatin's acting leaves nothing wanting. It does not seem that any other actress' conception of the char acter could be better. The charm of her acting is the simplicity and naturalness. Not once, even in the wildest scenes, does Miss Gallatin overdo the part in the least. Many who saw her may com pare her in many ways to Mrs. Fiske. There Is a reminder in Miss Gallatin's wavs of the portrayer "Becky Sharp." Miss Gallatin's supporting company is not as strong as could be desired. The "Charles Stuart" of Allen Davenport is not as pleasing as it might be. although Davenport is an actor of ability. Arthur Rutledge as "Captain Rupert Wyborne' seems to be the strongest in the support of Miss Gallatin. Margaret Dale Owen as "Mistress Betty Fairfield" pleased the audience, both -on account of her pref- face and good acting. There were a few funny incidents in the plav not calculated to be there. In the third act "Nell Gwynn" and "(Charles Stuart" were to be seated to gether on a sofa. Instead of a sofa the property man had secured a large arm chair, and when the king and "Nell Gwynn" unbent themselves to be seated they sank into the chair, or tried to. together and it looked as if something must give way. But nothing gave in the least, and they were wedged in to gether between the narrow arms of the chair. The audience laughed, and so did the ever vivacious Nellie. Miss Gallatin was much interested in Mrs. Nation. "This is the scene of Mrs. Nation's exploits, is it not?" she asked. "Well, I have followed her pretty close ly in the papers. Do I think she could make a success on the stage? No: the davs of sensationalism of that kind are over. She might do in a dime museum as a freak, but not on the stage." Miss Gallatin was abroad last summer, and while in Kngland bought a copy of a painting of Nell Gwynn, and from that painting her wig maker in New York patterned the dark auburn wig she wore as the character. Miss Gallatin is a de cided brunette. AIDES APPOINTED. Commander Martin Names Aides For Annual Encampment. A general ,order Issued by Department Commander Martin of the Kansas G. A.

Former Governor Pingree of Michigan spent half an hour last evening with Mr. Chamberlain, the colonial secretary, discussing the war in South Africa, whither Mr. Pingree will soon go on business. While Mr. Cham berlain did not refer to the negotiations row in progress for the surrender of General Louis Botha he told Mr. Pin gree that he failed to see how the Boers could hld out much longer. Mr. Pin gree who was greatly impressed by the Colonial secretary said after the inter view: "I never sat down with a more democratic gentleman. I always knew he was a brainy man, but I must con fess he surprised me." Sleeting at the Auditorium. A meeting in the interest of the law and order ticket will be held ths even ing at 8 o'clock. Good music. Grxid speeches. .Everybody should attend. PLAIM FACTS TOLD. (Continued from First Page.) right in the matter? The meeting was really a remarkable one. A. competent reporter might have made huge, legiti mate capital out of it for the Journal's side. Mr. Gleed's soeech was fearfully, chillingly vulnerable. Some others largely so. The strongest and really onlv argument in favor of Mr. Hughes was that he is, all things considered, less objectionable than Mr. Warner. In many respects the meeting resembled an ordinary ward heelers' meeting, ex cept that every one present was actu ated by a high and pure motive a desire to conserve the best interests of the city if he knew how to do it. There was a doubt how best to secure this result. Not one speaker expressed entire con fidence in his candidate. One plainly de clared he could not support Mr. Hughes. There were two meetings. In the in terim informal discussions were had. Mr. Hughes was favored by most of those present, but under protest, plainly expressed, a sentiment manifestly gen eral throughout the city anions his sup porters. After most of those in attend ance had gone, including Mr. Gleed, Mr. Hughes arrived and a few returned to hear him. In his remarks he named some business men who are supporting him, among whom were some recognized as not friendly to the cause of prohibit tion. At that time I was opposed to Hughes, and I became more so after that meeting, while not favoring War ner. G. F. KIMBALL. WRITINGS OF ST. JOHN. Interesting Papyri Which Have Been Discovered in Egypt New York, March 6. According to a Tribune special from Bosf--n, the Rev. Dr. Wm. C. Winslow. vice president of the Egyptian exploration fund there is authority -for the statement that in ad dition to the papyrus of St. Matthew's Gospel sent to the University of Penn sylvania that of St. Paul's Kpistle to ihe Rorr.ans, presented to Harvard two eth er extremely interesting panyrl are yet to be assigned. One is that of John which contains eighteen verses of chap ter 1 and 14 verses or chapter XX. In the first part are the words "Behold the lamb of God which taketh r.wav the sin of the world." and "We have found the Messiah." In chapter XX is the memor able story of Mary at the sepulchre. This papyrus of St. John in book form contained about fifty pages. Dr. Wins-low- says, and only the outer leaves are preserved. He says that the document is better written than the c5t. Matthew papyrus and is in harmonv with the famous text of Westcott and Hart. The papyrus is dated 200 A. D., or a little later and is pronounced only a little later than the S.t. Matthew text. The confirmation of the text of the present version is absolute. Dr. Winslow says that th papyrus of St. Mark although only a fragment is most precious, containing in the few verses of chapters X and XI specific facts of the life of Jesus. The manu script resembles the famous Codex Alex andrinus, now in the British museum and agrees with our "standard version. Its age is between 400 and 500 A. D. Other papyri sent to Philadelphia not yet announced include historical tables of emperors from Augustus to Decius a genuine "I. O. U.." as such documents are now termed for a loan, a lun in the year 57, when the attorney is in structed to "worry" the debtor until he pays up, and a manumission paper for a slave. Dr. Winslow says that the soil of F.gypt abounds in papyri but the. in creasing agricultural operations and the great dam which will flood an Immense area, will mean the destruction of tens of thousands of the historic papers, LEAVES Til AT TO TESLA. Marconi Is Not Ready to Telegraph Across the Ocean. New York. March 6. A dispatch to the Journal and Advertiser frDtn London says: Sigftor Marconi, who sails this week on the Majestic for New York, said to a cor respondent: "I have no big scheme on hand, but am crossing at the invitation of a few friends. My business is for the most part nrivate, though something, of course, may come out of it. I am going to see some mem bers of the equipment bureau of the navy with a view of getting my system official ly examined. I shall at least demonstrate my method of woiking and in all proba bility tit up a number of Installations on the coast to establish communication with light ships. I alo hope to .have an op portunity of experimenting on American warships." "Has your visit any objeci with the idea of establishing wireless communication between England and America?" was asked. "Not the slightest. We have a long way to go before that can be a'.t-lined. Tesla has the field at present, with that notion. If he succeeds. I shall be among the first to congratulate him. In the meantime I have managed to cover o"er 200 miles vithout difficulty and hone in . a vefy ;'.iort time to double that distance, as my aparatus is steadily being improved." Marconi intends to stay a month in the United States. BASKET BALL SCORE. Topeka and Haskeli Are Fighting For First Place.

PREVENTED ABDUCTION. Married Wellington Man Attempted to "Elope With Young GirL Wellington, March 6 City Marshal Cox stopped something: yesterday which would have resulted 'in bigamy and pos sibly murder had the plans of a mar ried man living in the First ward and a girl not quite sixteen years old been carried out. The man and fdrl were preparing to elope, and everything- was in readiness for them to leave the city together Thursday. The man went to Wichita last week and secure t a marriage li cense. The girl purchd.sei clothing at a dry goods store to the amount of $40.36, and at one of the jewelry stores to the amount of nearly $10. The cloth ing and jewelrv were given to the man and he had left part of it in a store and the remainder of it in a room in the second story of on rf the .business houses on Washington avenue, until thev were ready to elope. The discoverv of the plans was due to the man telling his wife that one of the officers had given him until Thurs day to leave town. The man's wife went to 'the officer to learn if the story was true. The officer was surprised at the storv, and an investigation revealed the plans of the man and girl. The clothing, jewelry and marriage license were found where the man had left them. MAfelXG ARRANGEMENTS. Department Commanders SelectHead quarters in Junction City. Department Commander W. W. Mar tin, of the G. A. R., went to Junction City today to make preliminary arrange ments for the holding of the annual state encampment, which is to be held on Mav 8 and 9.

The purpose of the visitors is to select suitable headquarters for each organi zation. The possibility that President McKinley may be secured to stop off for a brief visit to the encampment, as he will be on his way to deliver an ad dress at the University of California at this exact time, lends additional inter est the preparations for the state en campment, which is just two - months distant.

Some strong interests are undoubtedly tit-hind the market and are sustaining prices tor some good reason.
