XAST WEEK'S SHOWS AND TOTS
'"Claudius Noro" Coming to Albmiuh's "rt
Sotliorn "With a Now IMuy to tho Na
tional Ulnrlo "WalinvrlRht and "Tlio
City Dlxootory" Stngo NotoH.
Miss Mario Waluwrlght not only succeeded
in pleasing tho good-sized audiences that at
tended tho National Theatre last week by her
clover acting in "Twelfth Night" and "Tho
Honeymoon," but largely augmented tho num
ber of her admirers In this city. Miss Wain
wright's position on tho stagois backed by an ex
perience covering n. varied field or her art, and
tho iOlc of star, which she so gracefully assumes,
1b sustained by more than a romantic ambition.
Whatever may ho the occasional faults in her
conception of a part thcro is no questlou but
thather natural graco and ability have achieved
for her a popularity as an actress that few can
bonstof. Her supporting company this year is
very ctroug. Mr. William F. Owen did sorao
oxcollont acting, especially as Sir Toby Belch
in "Twelfth Night." Mr. Tcrcy Brooke's Sir
Andrew Agucchcck was also good. Mr. Barton
Hill is much too declamatory in everything ho
does to be as natural as might be desired, but
his personations last week were qulto ac
ceptable. Miss Blanch Walsh and Miss Louise
Muldcner aro both well qualified for tho parts
assigned them, and lent valuable assistance to
tho general excellence of tho performance.

Tho Smiths in "Tho City Directory" frisked
and frolicked over tho boards at Albaugh's
Grand Opera Houso last week to tho amuse
ment of the large audiences that turned out to
soo them. Like tho skits of Hoyt, "Tho City
Directory" is one or those extravagant contri
vances constructed for the purposo of grace
fully introducing to tho public tho merits of a
company of specialists, and in this respect it is
a pronounced success. Tho members of the
company comprising Russell's Comedians are
not only good in their individual turns, but
have been selected most aptly for their adapta
bility as the personam of tho cast. Mr. William
Collier as John Smith, manager of tho Gaiety,
does a most ludicrous bit of comedy acting; Mr.
Burt Haverly does some good character sing
ing; Mr. Ignacio MartlnettI discloses his quali
fications as a dancer; Mr. Alf Hampton gives
some excellent imitations of popular actors;
Miss Amelia Glover gyrates most beautifully as
tho premiere of the Gaiety; tho Irwin sisters ex
press themselves in song and monologue; Miss
Bessie Cleveland and Miss Maym Kelso do tho
solo work most successfully, and Miss Kato
Uart is equally as accomplished in her easy
task of looking beautiful. Mr. John W. Ran
som o as the capitalist and Mr. J. C. Miron
tho bunco steerer were very acceptable.
"Clrtudius Nero" and tlie Lions.
Mr. Edouard Darling, tho owner and trainer
of the lions that are exhibited in the perform
ance of "Claudius Nero," which will bo seen
at Albaugh's this week, has had a more ex
tended oxperieuce than probably any other
animal trainer in tho world. This experionco
has been confined exclusively to tho capture
and training of lions in various parts of tho
globe. When quite young Mr. Darling visited
Southern .Afrlca as a purchasing agent for Karl
Hajutiack's well-known Hamburg establish
ment. He spent over three years in Africa, and
most of that time was engaged in the pursuit of
the South African lion in his notivo forest. On
his return to Germany he commenced the edu
cation of four largo lions that ho now has in
his troupe, which consists of six splendid
specimens of tho "king of beasts." no began
training these animals when they were littlo
better than cubs, and only succeeded in bring
ing them to their present state of submission
after four years' constant and careful practice.
For the past two years his lions havo been tho
roiguing sensation in London and Paris, where
they havo been exhibited in connection with
tho Exposition. In London thoy became such
a rage that almost tho first thing tho visitor
was advised to do was to see tho lions. Not
only does Mr. Durling succeed in making his
pets perform all tho tricks usually
given by the educated animals, but ho finishes
his entertainment with harnessing tho three
largest and fiercest lions to a sort of Roman
chariot, which he mouuts,tind drives tho animals
around tho stage at a furious pace. This por
tlou of tho exhibition has been pronounced by
the leading journals of Paris and Now York to
bo most thrilling. Tho lions requlro tho great
est care in this rigorous climate. When not
performing thoy are kept in ouo corner of tho
stage In a largo steel den that is used for trans
porting them between tho car thoy travel in and
tho theatre This den Is kept at a certain tem
perature by an Ingenious heating apparatus.
Tho day of tho arrival of tho animals in New
York tho president of tho Society for tho Pre
vention of Cruelty to Animals, two police com
missioners, and two members of tho Board of
Health and Mayor Grant, as a sort of commit
tee of public safety, witnessed a private per
formance on tho stage at Niblo's Gordon, and
expressed themselves as perfectly satisfied with
tho arrangements made for tho protection of
tho public. While "Claudius Nero" was
being presented in Now York tho members of
tho school board advised tho teachers and
scholars of tho various educational in
stitutions of that city under their charge
to visit tho thieatro and witness one or more per
formances of this imposiug Roman spectacle as
an object-lesson in history, and professors of
the various colleges did tho same with the stu
dents of their institutions, and thus over four
thousand people directly connected with tho
various educational institutions of Now York
visited Niblo's and witnessed "Nero and tho
Lions." Mauager Albaugh has been requested
to glvo a special matin6e for schools, and will
in all probability arrange to do so. It is
thought by tho management that this spectacle
would draw crowded houses for two weeltB at
least, but previous engagements limit the stay
hero to one week ouly. NotwithBtaudiug the
magultudo of this attraction, it Is determined to
adhere to tho regular prices of the theatre.
"Tho Maistcr of Woodbarrow. "
At tbo Now National Theatre to-morrow
night will bo witnessed tho first production in
this qity of E. II. Sothern's new play, "Tho
Malsterof Woodbarrow," by Jerome K, Jerome.
This piece was originally produced in this
country at tho Lyceum Theatre, New York,
and ran there for many weeks to crowded
houes with young Mr. Sothern, a capital favor
ite with playgoers, ns tho star. Jerome's com
edy has recoived strong commendation from
tho orltice for Its daintiness, unconveutiouality,
and excellent literary quality. It tells with
much freshness of charm a delightful and ab
sorbing 6tory. The plot may not prove unin
teresting to thoso who aro unfamiliar with
Sothern's latest success. Allen Jiollilt, a youmj
Devonshire farmer, has been loading a quiet
country life with bis mother and n charming
girl named Deborah Beacon. Tho latter loves
him fondly, and tho trio aro ignorant of city
llfo. Aliens however, suddenly begins to yearn
for it, tho more so as ho has formed apDSsionato
attnehment for Clara Dexter, a "swell lady"
from London who is spendiuglho summer near
his home. It is made apparent at tho begin
ning of tho play that thcro is a possibility of
Allen inheriting a largo sum of money through
tho non-appearance of tho rightful
heir, who is supposed to bo traveling in
America. A scoundrel named Dan Cassidy,
aware of tho statu of tliinge, persuades nnothor
scoundrel to Impersonate tho missing man, who
has been reported dead. Tho deception is
trlcil, and tho newcomer is proclaimed the
heir, but dies immediately after of heart
dleeaso, which occurrenco places Allen in pos
session of tho fortune. Ho thereupon follows
ClararDc&tcr to London and puts himself iuto
tho hands of a flunkey, who proceeds to toach
him tho manners, habits, methods of dress, etc.,
which aro supposed to constitute a gentleman,
this idea giving scope for excellent comedy.
Attends infatuation for Clara, who Is merely a
decoy for her rascally husband and father,
grows apace, and ho is fleeced unmerci
fully. Finally he confesses his lovo, ami
tho woman, impressed by his genuine de
votion, acknowledges her truo character. At
tho same time tho rightful heir turns up, and
Allen, disenchanted with his new life, seeks
onco moro tbo old farm, ivhoro his mother and
Deborah receive him with open arms. The play
offers Sothern tho flncpt opportunities ho has
yet had for demonstrating tho versatility of his
art. Allen ltollilt offers scope for sentiment,
comedy, and strong dramatic action,
and Sothern seizes in a brilliant way
tho chances offered him. Hitherto his suc
cesses have boon won chiefly In comedy, but his
serious work In "Tho Maister of Woodbarrow"
has stamped him an emotional actor of genuine
mettle. It must not bo supposed that Mr.
Sothern has no comedy moments in his now
work. There are plenty of them, uuiquo and
laughter-moving. F.o is surrounded by the
strongest organization which has yet supported
him, and which will stand the test of compari
son with nuy New York stock company. The
play will bo given at tho Now National with all
tho original scenery and effects from tho
Lyceum Theatre. There will bo a Saturday
motinSo only during Mr. Sothern's engage
ment. Rowland Buckstono, Owen Fawcett,
Walter Craven, Kato. Pattison Solten, Virginia
Harned, Jenny Dunbar, and Charlotte Mal
colm are members of Mr. Sothern's company.
"A Royal Pass" at. Hie Bijou.
The popular German dialect comedian, Mr.
George C. Staley, will bo at Harris's Bijou The
atre this week with bis great play, "A Royal
Pass." Mr. Staley takes a prominent rank
amone tho foremost of America's comedians,
and "A Royal Pass" possesses extraordinary
merits as a play. It is full of corned', and Is at
tho same time always refined. Its situations
and climaxes aru thrilling, but never cheaply
sensational. It is throughout a first-class piece
of work, and a competent company and flno
scenery enables the same to bo said of the en
tire performance. The personages of tbo play
aro Swiss ond Russian. All tho parts aro beau
tifully and correctly costumed. Mr. Staley
plays the part of a Swiss guide in a most pleas
ing fashion, and introduces his singing and
warbling. Durluc his engagement in Wash
ington ho will blng "My Heart's Delight" and
"The Littlo Rogue's A6leep;" also his latest
success, "Johnny Schmoker." One of tho stir
ring events in tho performance is tho arrival of
tho courior on tho magnificent horso Czar.
Mr. Staley is highly praised wherever he has
been seen, and is already a strong favorite in
Washington Usual prices and raatinGes.
Matt Morgan's Parisian Art.
Tho greatest of all sensations, Matt Morgan's
last great work and acknowledged masterpiece,
Parisian Art, is one of the features of tho City
Club Vaudeville and Burlesque Company, which
will open at Kernan's Theatre to-morrow night
for one week only. Tho living models were se
lected by tho great arti6t himself. Among tho

Tho French aro considerably excited just how
over tho announcement that "Joan of Arc" is to

papers arc shrieking for interference on the part
of tho French government.
Tho coming engagement or Richard Mansfield

Edward Harrigan opened his beautiful new
theatro at Sixth uvonue und Thirty-fifth streot,

Louis Harrison Buys tho managers aro all put
ting up now theatres now, and they will put up
their watches later on. There is littlo doubt
that Louis is right. Too many theatres have so
divided business in New York, Philadelphia, and
other largo cities that no ono makes more than a
bare living, and many not that.
Popular interest in Donman Thompson's "Old
Homestead" must bo waning seriously, or else
this sort of item would not bo put out to revive
it: "Donman Thompson has received u cable
gram from Hue, tho capital of Cochin China,
that a Chinese version of his 'Old Homestead' is
about to bo presented boforo the king there.
Tho actor has been petitioned by dramatic au
thors in nlmost every country of tho globo for
permission to translate tho play for presenta
tion." Mile. Rhea has boon giving a Buffalo reporter
some of hor ideas about critics and criticism. "If
you are kind, well-bred, und havo u certain power
of admiration," says bud, "your criticism will bo
tempered with theso qualities. If, on tho con
trary, you aro u disappointed man, with your
heart full of envy and venom, your pen will bo
dipped in vitriol and stab like a poignard. Tho
worst of it is, this latter class muy attack with
impunity, because, ns thoy never produce any
thing, you cannot criticise thoir work."
Tho "Joan of Arc" proporty man in nnrtford
tho other day mado an attempt nt realism that
might havo proved disastrous. In tlio lust act,
when Miss Mather is burned at tho stake, it is
said that in order to make tho scono moro realistic
ho tried somo now fire material, and caused the
ilames to shoot up behind instead of in front of
tho chained victim. Miss Mather was almost
choked by tho smoke, and was taken down in a
fainting condition. Sho said that sho had never ex
perienced such a horrible feeling, and that if Bho
could havo liberated herself Joan would havo as
tonished tho audience by f scaping for that par
ticular ocoaslon only.
Talking about tho ltcoutlousuess of largo cities,
how is this ndvanco notice of a "Clomenceau
Case" troupe from tho News of tho Innocent
town of Ohilllcotho, Ohio: "Chllllcotho is full of
lovers of feminine beauty, and all of them can
havo an opportunity to gratify their desires in
this respeot next Tuesday. There will be six
teen charming nnd shapely young ladies on tho
stago arrayed in tights, whioh display to tho
best advantage thoir plump and rounded limbs.
Justthink of it. Sixteen largo and juioy chunks
of fcminlno voluptuousness, Tho studio scene
from tho celebrated 'Clomoncoau Case,' in whioh
tho Countess Iza poses nude before her artist
lover, is ono of tho notable features of the scene.
This ono scenonlono is worth tho price of admis
sion. There is, however, nothing that could
possibly offend tho most fastidious."
Mr, Wlllard.tho English actor of whom tho
Now York papers never tiro of saying pleasant
things, put on Henry Arthur Jones's play of
"Judah" at Palmer's Theatre, Now York, on
Monday night. "Judah" is said to bo thoroughly
well written and Jngonlsusly constructed, but
tho peculiarity of It&mottf causes tho Now York
public to hesitate about making up its mind
whether It likes it or not. It tollB tho story of a de
vout and zealous preacher who falls in lovo with
a humbug fulthourlst. When ho discovers that
her pretended cures are frauds und that she is
secretly taking food whilo ostensibly undergo
ing a long fast ho is terribly shocked, but his

Ton Per Cent, of tho Households In ParlB
New York Sun.
Irregular households are very numerous in
Franco, especially in tho largo towns. Thoy
arc constituted for various reasons, among which
reasons of an immoral nature nro tho exception,
Among tho working classes tho formalities and
expenses of tho marriago ceremony aro often
tho initial cause of tho irregularity. Tho man
or tho woman often finds difficulty in getting
tho necessary papers and birth certificates from
tho provincial village where ho or sho was born.
Tho trouble. of repeated visits to administrative
offices whero tho employes aro rough and dis
obliging, tho lo3s of time, tho expense, etc.,
lead couples to get married naturally without
tho aid of tho civil authorities. As for tho re
ligious ceremony of marriago, it must bo remem
bered that tho working classes in tho towns aro
detached from Catholicism; they aro for tho
most part f rco thinkers and frankly anti-clerical.
The intervention of tho priest is thus easily
dispensed with, both by the man and by tho
woman. The ceremony of civil marriago being
troublesome, nnd that of religious marriago be
ing neither required by tho laws of tbo laud nor
greatly respected by tho people in Franco a
religious marriago ceremony is a pure luxury
one can easily understand how tho working
classes get In tho habit of contracting free
unions, which they may or may not rcgularizo
in after life. In tho middle classes frco unions
oro common among employes, particularly for
whom habit transforms a passing liaison into a
collage which often lasts until death parts tho
couple. Among artists and journalists there
aro perhaps as many unmarried as married
men, and but few that aro solitary. In fact, in
tho city of Paris ten per cent, of tho households
aro irregular, the total being somo ninety thou
sand. Now, such being the case, it is hardly
reasonable to consider a man and a woman who
live together and form a household, and some
times a family, as being lover and mistress with
all tho stigma of immorality which thoso words
imply in English, the moro so as theso unions
aro often infinitely moro moral, moro exemplary,
and moro completely respectable than many
unions that have been legalized by the mayor
and blessed by tho priest.
