CURRENT AMUSEMENTS. thk ni'.vivAii or i,inafom AIjIIAUGH'S THIS YVKKK. AT Xnst "Week's Performance of "TholJat" Tragedian Downing Gives an Out-Door 1'roclucUoit of " Ingoinar " at Ills Coun try I'lnce Notes of Theatrical Affairs. Tho Lnmont Opera Company mnilc a bold en deavor to present Johnnn Strnuss's comic opera, "The Bat," nt Albaugh's last week anil drew good houses, if not high encomiums. Tlio at tempt was not a complete success, although there were members of the cast who would have made It so with propor support. In tho dis tinction generally recognized regarding such productions, "The Bat" might be considered more in tho nature of a musical comedy than a comic opera, and as such it demands more real histrionic ability than is ordinarily discovered In a company confining itself to the usual line of light opera. Inequalities of merit are made all the more prominent under such conditions when lack of familiarity with the linos adds discomfort to tho actors. Such was tho case last week to a great cxtont, but, considering all the circumstances, there was sufficient good work done to pull the opera through and make a fa vorable impression upon the audiences of its value as an entertainer. The best work was done by Mr. Do Lange, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Clark, and Miss llanley. Mr. De Lange as VonEiscn stein presented a piece of comedy acting that at once caught favor and further clinched his reputation for versatility. Miss Hanley as Addc showed what she could do in long dresses and how well she could do it. Her act ing was very clever. Mr. "Wilson was easy aud graceful in tho good-natured talky part of Dr. Fall; while Mr. Clark as Frosch, the jailor, made a great deal of a rather unimportant rfile. "What tho chorus had to do was done fairly well. A Revival or "Pinafore." Gilbert and Sullivan's first and probably greatest success. "Pinafore," is so old as almost to have beconio new again. A new generation of theatre-goers has grown up since the charm ing little opera first set tho world to laughing and humming its tuneful numbers, and to those its revival by the Lamont troupe for the thirteenth week of its season at Albaugh's will be a genuine treat, while there are few of those who neard "Pinafore" years ago who will not be glad to hear it again. The opera will be presented with appropriate scenery and costumes by the entire force of the Lamont Company. Miss Lamont herself will appear as Josephine, the captain's charming daughter: Miss Emma Hanley will be the IFcbe, Miss Mabella Baker the Little Buttercup, a part which will give full scope to her exceptional comedy talent; Mr. Louis De Lange the Sir Joseph, Mr. Lloyd "Wil son the C'apt. Corcoran, and Mr. Joseph W. Herbert the Dick Deadcyc. There will in addi tion be a full chorus of sisters, cousins, aunts, and sailors. THE FOURTH AT "EDGE WOOD." A. Successful Out-DoorPerforiuanceof "In gomar" at Mr. Downing!, Home. The Fourth was celebrated in a unique and novel manner at "Edgewood," Md., the home of Mr. Robert L. Downing, Washington's tragic actor, by the presentation on the lawn of "Ingo mar." With the sky above, the green grass be neath, and around the forests and hills, the imagination easily fancied oneself amid the mountains, the scene of tho Massilliau story on which the play is founded. Mr. Downing as Ingomar, a role in which he stands at the head in his profession, gave additional evidence of his already established reputation as a versatile actor depicting the wild e everity of the barbarian's nature, as well as the tender touches of gentleness when softened by Par thcniiCs influence, with equal artistic skill. Mrs. Downing as Parthenia was the beauti ful Massillian heroine in every sense of the word, and so true to the chaiacteras to make her auditors readily believe themselves trans ported to classic scenes aud to their sympathy in her sacrifice to save her father. The others of the cast were J'olidor, Mr. Giles Shine; The Timarch, Mr. David C. Bangs; Alustor, Mr. "William Boag; Myron, Mr. 'Felix Mahony; Ambirar. Mr. Beitram G. Temple; Amylas, Mr. Byrnes; .Yoci'o,Mr.Baum; Ji)ic)jor,Mr.l'ioffman; Lykon, Mr. Von Metzgar; tiamo, Mr. Gaillard; Acted, Mrs. Ella Wren Blair, aud Thcaro, Miss llosmer. The details of the entertainment and stage direction were in charge of Mr. Boag, to whom great praise is due for his clever man agement, as well as for the excel lent rendition of the rule of Alas tor. Mrs. Blair's Actca was a finished performative; and Mr. Bangs as the Timarch fully sustained the requirements of an important part. Mr. Felix Mahoney and Mr. Temple also deserve mention for their work. There was no orchestra, but this feature was not missed in the excellence of the entertainment. The difficul ties ne essarily incident to an out-door perform ance were all oercome, and a good sum was lenllzedfor the Knights of Pythias lodge for which the play was given. Mr. Downing liab a beautiful home over looking the valley, with the Blue Kidge in the distance. Tho housj is spacious, and ouc of the adjoining smaller buildings is fitted up by Mr. Downing with a bath an 1 gymnastic appa ratus, where ho spends much of his timo fight ing the adipose which so often embarrasses his trionic heioes. Mr. Downing could scarcely have conceived a better scheme for spending the Fourth pleasantly and hospitably for his friends. " NOTES OF THE STAGE. Georgia Cayvan 1ms gone to Europe.

Itosina Yokes and her genial husband, Cecil Clay, sailed lor England on Wednesday. They will leturu In September. "Mary E. Lincoln, M. D.," is the singularly slow and commonplace title of a play In which Mary Shaw will star next season. That wonderfully successful piny, "The Old Homestead," will begin its louith season at the New York Academy ot Mutio on October 0. Mr, and Mrs. Kendal arc to spend tho summer in Paris. It is hoped that Mrs. Kendal is to have some new dresses lor her next American tour. The liberality of the French government in support of music and the drama In Paris is best explained by the lollowinjr appropriations lor ISai: Grand Opera. SIGO.CjO; Theatre Fraueaia, 26,000; Opera Continue. SOj.OOO; Odeon. SiiO.OOO; Concerts Lamoreux, S20.000; Colonne Concerts, S2O.003; Popular Concerts, S20.000, and besides theso sums S20.000 additional for tho general en couragement of musical and dramatic enter prises. Chicago is burled beneath afflictions this sum nicr. Tho heat Is deadly, tho fight over tho World's Fair site Is agonizing, and "Adonis" has been revived at ono of the theatres. Mr. Ffrangcon Davlcs has been engaged to create tho leading baritone part in Sir Arthur Sullivan's new serious opera, "Ivanhoc," which will bo produced iu London in tho fall. Edmund C. Stanton, director of tho Now York Metropolitan Opera House, has engaged Miss Minnie Hauk for eight performances next sea son. Miss Hnuk will appear in "Carmen" and other operas. llronsou Hownrd has been paid about SC0.000 in royalties since his "Shenandoah" was produced last September, Ho received $12,500 for "Young Mrs. Winthrop," nnd got about tho same amount Tor his "Henrietta." James O'Neill, who forseveral seasons devoted his strong lungs and rich accent exclusively to "Monte Crlsto," Is reliably reported to have made a genuine success with his revival of "The Dead Heart" lu Chicago recently. Despite the ushers' obstreperous uniforms and other drawbacks, tho bur Madison Square Garden In Now York is a success. The receipts Tor the first week were $37,000, and the attendance for tho second week was 20,000 greater than for the tlrat. Tho harrowing announcement Is made that LI7.7.I0 Evans may go abroad next season to do light, thecrowncd heads oC Europe with a gllrapso of "Fogg's Ferry." But then the Kcndals are coming over hero again, and wo may pull through. "The "hustler" is earning his salary In tho the atrical calling this season. Advance puffery of the Tall and winter productions was never more eloquent. Yet the next dramatic season, viewed from this distance, docs uot promise to be par ticularly brilliant or satisfying. Eutope does not seem to agree with American theatrical people this summer. A largo propor tion of those who have gone over have become sick. Nat Goodwin, ArMiur Chase, and Richard Golden nre the latest on tho list. They are re ported dangerously ill lu London. From present indications there will bo several Joans 0 .Arc in tho field next season. Sonhio Eyre, It Is said, will have an adaptation of Sar dou's version, and will shortly lcavo for Paris to get her costumes. Bcrnhnrdt will do the orig inal French version when Mr. Abbey brings her ovor. Despite all sorts of fantastic advertising, in cluding overdoses oE chloral and fainting tits on tho stage, Bernhardt is not drawing well in Lou dou. Perhaps the boy cot proclaimed agaiust her by the English clergy when she announced her intention to play the Virgin In the "Passion Play" nt Paris is being carried out. Two plays by Jerome K. Jerome, the clever author of "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow," will be produced in this country next season. They are "New Lamps for Old," which has been bought by Augustln Daly, and "Woodbarrow Farm." In which E. H. Sothern will reappear at tho New York Lyceum. Jerome's plays, as well as I1I3 books, are very popular in England. Although the McGinty song has become a 1 chestnut so far as this vicinity is concerned, it is still Belling briskly in tho West and South. The ! publishers sav that over250,000 copies have been 1 sold. Tho song has served both author and pub ' Ushers well. Flynn, who wrote the song, is a variety comedian. At the time the song was written he and his partner, Sheridan, were earn 1 ing $00 a week. When the musical news arrived that McGinty had gone to the bottom of the sea the salary of the comedians rose to S200 a week. The publishers, too. came in for a material share of tho profits. At tho time tho song was pub lished these two young Germans were dragging out a precarious existence in Brooklyn trying to sell pianos on the installment plan and dealing in cheap music. Their store was poorly fur nished, and the money taken iu every day was consumed each night in the attempt to pay current expeuscs. Along came Flynn with his manuscript of McGinty. It swent the town. Orders came in lrom orchestra leaders for orchestral arrange ments. The press was kept busy night and day to supply the demand. The young Germans smiled. They painted the store, put out a big golden sign, and filled the rejuvenated place with pianos. It has been pretty satisfactorily demonstrated during the past season to at least several of the most prominent theatrical managers of the coun try that the public have tired of witnessing the infant prodigy as represented on the stage. Not withstanding this fact, Archibald Clavering Guntci has just completed his latest story. "Small Boys in Big Boots." which, like Its prede cessors, "Mr. Barnes, of New York," and "Mr. Potter, of Texas." is destined for the stage. Mr. Gunter holds that mothers areas fond of children to-day as they were when "Fauntleroy" was originally produced at tho Broadway Theatre, and that they are quite as willing, if not auxious, now as then, to witness their darlings in dramas. He considers the cauEc for apparent lukewnrm ness on the part of these mothers to be the scarcity of tho "Fauntleroy" type among their "Young Americas," and therefore he has written a story introducing half a dozen boys with sepa rate and distinct personalities and characteristics for the delight oi, as he terras it, "assorted mothers with assorted children." No doubt the book will prove an excellent advertising medium for the ultimate stage production of "Small Boys in Big Boots." Cheap Excursions to Atlantic City or Capo May via Pennsylvania Rail road.
