3 m FUN AT ALL THE HOUSES. COMEDY W1M. HOLD THK IIOAIIDS THIS WKKK. Grnno In "Tho Soiintor" at Albitugh'H, "tnter On" lit tho National, "Shamus O'Brien" nt tho Bijou, and Hlgh-ClnsH Vnrloty nt Kornnn'a Notes of tho Since Mr. Richard Mansfield and his excellent com pany last week made Washington his second vlett of tho season, presenting tho sumo re pertory with which ho haB previously captured tho favor of tho public. Albaugh'6 Grand Opera H0U80 was filled each ovenlng during tho Week as tt has rarely been before this season. Mr. Mansfield's position on tho stagols a distinctive one. Ho Is an artist of peculiar versatility and powor not tho power to exclto Impulses, but tho power to command admiration and this exquisite ektll appears in everything ho docs on tho stage. Tnn Hr.iui,D has heretofore Bpokon in pralsoof his plays and compauy. They nro practically tho same as thoy wcro earlier in tho season, and thero is nothlngto bo added ex cepting perhaps that Mr. Mansfield might pro long his stays in this city with profit to himself and pleasuro to his host of admirers. There wcro some pretty good audiences nt tho National Theatre last week, albeit Mr. W.J. Scaulon, who made his appearance there, has not yet reached the popularity of his cotempo rary, Emmet, in his particular line of business. Mr. Scanlon, howover, differs from Emmet in that ho adopts the dialect of Ireland, and makes his parts more robustiously heroic. Tho play which ho presents this year is a joint pro duction by George II. Jeseopand Horace Town send called "Myles Aroon" and contains some llttlo merit outside of the prime motive to keop tho star preeminently in tho foreground. Mr. Scanlon did his part well and sang some of his own bright songs in cood 6tylo. His company Is excellent in some particulars and not so good in others. Mr. Thaddeus Shino as Mike Carney lost himself completely in his character and gave a splendid bit of actlnc. Mr. Robert McNalr succeeded well with tho broader comedy portion of tho performance in tho part of Pat JPhelan. Miss Mattie Ferguson as Maggie Far rell waB very good and llttlo Miss Constance AVnllaco as Nellie Glover was quite as sweet and charming as could be. Tho scenery was pretty and effective. A New Quartette. Tho portion of tho Washington public that attended tho charming reception and sociable given by tho members of tho First Baptist Church on Friday evening were treated to a most happy surprise in the "Sixteenth Street Quartette" which made Its informal d6but on that occasion. Musical circles have been wait ing with expectant interest for tho opportunity to hear this quartette, rumors having been quite Ueneral to the effect that certain promi nent vocalists of the city had been studying concert music since early fall with prospects of eclipsing anything purely local ever heard here. To say that they succeeded on Friday evenlug is high commendation in a city so eminently musical as Washington. There were two num bers announced for the quartette "The Sea nath Its Pearls" and "The Sands of Dee" both arrangements of the most difficult and trying order, and these were rendered in a brilliant manner. In response to the enthusias tic applause an additional number was given. This consisted of a beautiful arrangement of the popular air, "My Pretty Jane," which was sung in exquisite 6tylo. Tho singing of these ladles and gentlemen is characterized by a delicate artistic finish seldom disclosed in con certed music by mixed quartettes; and tho evenness of their, voices and the intelligence of their shading bring out in a marvelous degree not only tho words but tho spirit of tho music they essay. Thero is no similar musical organi zation In tho city at this time, and It is hoped that thoy will soon make their formal bow before tho public. The quartette is composed of Mrs. E. Z. Perkins, soprano; Mrs. Eulallo Domer Rbecin, contralto; Mr. Alexander Mosher, tenor, and Mr. Charles Edward Rice, basso. Crane in "The Senator" at AlliaugU's. If thero is ono man in America to whom the native playwrights owo a debt of gratitude It is AV. H. Crane, tho genial comedian. Mr. Crane believes in tho American drama, and when he began his career as a lone star after tho partner ship botween himself and Mr. Robson had been dissolved it was with "The Senator," a play written by two bright young Americans, having an American story for its basis, and dealing ex clusively with types of character to bo found in this country. The native drama had been lan guishing up to this time, but Mr. Crano had faith in it, and proved his faith by his deeds. The result has more than justified his judgment as an actor and manager. The success of "The Senator" has been simply phenomenal. It cele brated tho anniversary of its production at tho Star Theatre in Now York on January 13, and has been played in that house moro than two hundred and fifty times, Its career covering tho better part of two full theatrical seasons. Some idea of tho nature of that popularity can be trained by tho fact that for tho greater part of tho run of "The Senator" tho receipts at tho box office of tho theatre have averaged $10,500 weekly, an enormous sum of money for even a metropolitan theatre to take in. Tho comedy Is bright and sparkling, full of brilliant dialogue and crispy lines, bristling with humor, which gives Mr. Crano an opportunity to do tho best work of his life as a comedian, and yet pos sessed of an element of serious interest which holds tho attention of the audience from tho rise of tho curtain to tho final fall. It Is finely acted by Mr. Crano and his admirable company, and has won popular favor strictly on its merits. "The Senator" will be presented with the origi nal Now York cast at Alhaugh's Opera House, commencing to-morrow evening. "Iiater On" at the National. Hallen and Hart in "Later On" will bo tho next attraction at tho National, beginning Mon day night. This elever and successful skit has won a high place in tho esteem of theatre-goers, and its brilliant young interpreters achieved success not at all unmerited. Manager Hine has gathered together a company of great strength and ono that could as well interpert an opera aB they do tho high-class musical se lections introduced into the comedy. Mollie Fuller, Annie Lewis, Ada Somers, and Adele Farrington form a coterlo of beauty and talent hard to excell, while to the cleverness of Fred Hallen and Joe Hart, J. J. Sullivan, John E. McWade, and Harry Hilton form a perfect background. AH tho latest novelties in fun and frolic have been added to "Later On" until it now stands among tho best farce-comedies on stage, and its interpreters have risen to a place that so many have tried and failed. Special scenery, elaborate accessories, and m sen lucent costumes all tend to a brilliant setting of a popular success. "Later On" possesses no chestnuts. As aoon as any joke or business is worn threadbare by the many copyists of a good thing it is eliminated, and In Its place some new and startling gag is put, so those who have onco enjoyed "Later On" enjoy It again when seen a second or third tlmo. Matln6cs will bo given on Wednesday and Saturday. "Shaimis O'Brien" at Harris's. Charles Erin Verner comes to Harris's Bijou Theatro next week in his popular Irish crea tion of "Shamus O'Brien."" Slnco Its visit to our city last season tho play has been entlroly revised and rewritten, making it brighter and moro Interesting. Mr. Vomer's part has been strengthened by tho introduction of several strong scenes and bits of comedy sparkling with characteristic Irish wit. Handsome scen ery, painted from photographB taken In Galway has also been added, thus enhancing tho inter est of what is really an Irish play of moro than ordinary morit. Tho actor-author has been very successful in giving lifo to the famous old poem, and tho wild escapades of tho "bould boy of Gllngall" aro retold In a clover manner. Tho compauy Is, If anything, stronger than It was last season. Handsome Katherlno Walsh still plays tho comely Irl6h lady, whoso rebel speeches find an echo In tho heart of every audi tor. William Cahlll Is still greoted with storms of hisses as tho villainous Shadrach O'Finn, and tho melodious screech of William Mur phy's bagpipes sets tho tlmo to which tho heels of tho gallery gods aro prono to keep pace. Tho Boston Spmphony Orchestra. On Thursday ovenlng, February 20, this superb band of artists, under tho Inspiring guidance of Mr. NIklsch, will glvo tho fourth concert of its scries nt Lincoln Music Hall. To elvo especial 6clat to this musical occasion, the management announces aB soloist tho world renowned plnnlst, Vladlmer Do Pachmann, whoso uniquo concerts of last year were tho success of tho day at a time when 6omo of tho most noted pianists of Europe were appearing before the American public, and who makes his first appearance here at this concert. Tho pro gramme reveals a selection attractive alike to tho musically educated and to tho less cultivated, but genuine music lover, and embraces standard compositions of the modern schoool and tho noblest works of tho masters. Tho 6alo of tickets begins to-morrow morning at J. F. Ellis & Co.'s, and, aB usual, It will doubtless prove that only the early applicants will be able to securo seats. Tho programme Is as follows: Overture, "Prometheus," Goldmark; concerto for Piano, D minor, Mozart; andantlno and Scherzo, from fourth symphony, Tschol kowsky; piano solos, Chopin; erolca symphony, Beethoven. Soloist, Mr. Vladlmer De Pjch mann. Tho Stoddard Lectures. Mr. Stoddard will give at Lincoln Music Hall, this (Sunday) evening, his lecture on "The Pas sion Play of 1890 at Oberammergau." conceded everywhere to ho a wonderfully vivid and real istic description and reproduction of the scenes of this remarkable drama. Tho other lectures of tho week will take pluco as follows: Monday ovenlng, "Sweden, Queen of the Baltic;" Tues day and Wednesday evenings, "Norway, Land of the Midnight Sun;" Thursday and Friday evenings, tho last times of "Tho Passion Play." An extra matinCe will be given on Salurday af ternoon next, In response to a ereat number of requests for one more opportunity to hear of the "Land of tho Midnight Sun." This matlnfie will positively close Mr. Stoddard's phenomenal season here. Roslna Volces's Annual Visit. Roslna Voices, who has no equal In tho re card of the theatre-goers of Washington, comes to the National on Monday, February, 23, to beglu her annual welcome visit. From her ex tensive repertoire Miss Yokes has made tho following selections with which to delight her Washington friends. She will present three separate plays at each performance. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights and Saturday afrernoon the performance will begin with a one-act comedy taken from H. J. Byron's "Married in Haste," entitled "Percy Pendra- Son," (first time here;) this will be followed by i. C. Stephenson's one-act comedietta, "A Double Lesson," and conclude with "My Lord in Livery," (first time here,) a farcical comedy in ono act by S. Theyre Smith. Thursday, Fri day and Saturday nights the bill will consist of "Tho Old Musician." (first time here,) a play in ono act adapted from the French by Felix Morris, who will assume the title rOle; "Wig and Gown," (first time here,) a comedietta by F. W. Sidney, and J. B. Buckstone's charming comedietta, "Tho Rough Diamond." Gus Hill's Bis Show at ICcrnan's. Gus Hill's World of Novelties, tho leading novelty company of the country, will open at Kernan's Theatro to-morrow night for tho week, presenting many now featuies and great cards. Gus Hill, tho champion club-swinger of tho world, will glvo a rare and refiued athletic ex hibition, in conjunction with Charles H. Hoey, tho champion fancy club-swinger. Mr. Hill not only repeats his challenge for his or Iloey's equal, but "Invites local athletes to a contest. Tuen thero Is Chip, the child actor, whose imi tations display a wonderful precocity. James E. Black, tho legless dancer, is a great novelty. Emily Pearo is a great voeall6t, with a rich, strong voico that is most pleasing. Among others aro Estello Wellington, Fred' J. Huber and Kitty Allyne, Gilbert Sarony, Block6on and Burns, Charles G. Soymour, andEddloand Josle Evans. It is a monster entertainment, con cluding with tho funniest farce, "Married Mashers."

Next Tuesday evening, tho 17th Instant, tho National Rifles' Armory will doubtless bo crowded with tho friends of the Union Veteran Union to listen to tho recitals from popular authors of Mrs. Margaret Custer Calhoun. Mrs. Calhoun Is tho Bister of Gen, Custer and Lieut. Calhoun, who so heroically yielded up their lives In tho Llttlo Big Horn massacre. Sho has had a phenomenal success as a reader before largo audiences in the principal cities of the North and West. Tho readings aro for the benefit of the Veteran Union, and will no doubt test tho full capacity of tho Armory. Stage Notes. Miss Emma V. Sheridan has written a novel. Julia Marlowe will resumo her starring tour in Baltimore on March 0. Horatio Alger, tho well-known writer of boys' tories, is writing a play for Elsie Leslie. Harry Paulton baa mado quito a hit as Bender in "All tho Comforts of Home" in London. Ben Teal has trono to St. Louis to rehearse. Magglo Mitchell's new play, "A Little Maverick." Henry Irving has revived "Tho Lyons Mail" at tho London Lyceum, appearing in his won derful dual rOle. As George H.

Ferris, of this city, haB joined the road company of "The County Fair" to play tho part of Tim, replacing Walter Perkins. Ida Needle, one of tho cleverest llttlo artistes on tho stage, will retire permanently to private lifo noxt season. Sho is tho wife of Beu Tutnill, the manager. Minnie Palmer appears in uiulo costume in her now play, "A Mile a Minute." Perhaps it was her dcslro to wear tho trousers nntl go at a rapid Rait that caused her recent trouble with her hus band and mnnnger, John It. Rogers. Such has been tho success of "Nerves" nttho New York Lyceum that n series of extra mntl nt'es will bo given to relievo tho pressure on tho night houses. Chicago stands by Mrs. Leslie Carter. She was greeted .by an immense audience when sho opened thero Monday night, and was recalled fourteen times. Thoilffrror says that six new theatres will bo built In Now York within tho next two years, nnd warns managers nnd speculator's that they aro overdoing the thing. Mario Dacca's numerous friends In Washing ton nro very much gratified nt her great success in concert in Boston. Tho newspaper criticisms of her singing were exceptionally enthusiastic. Tho anniversary of Carmoticltn's first nppenr nncont Kcrterand Dial's, Now York, was cele brated thero Monday night last with great eclat nnd tho popping of unnumbered champagne corks. A Now York banker Is said to bo willing to put up 8350.000 for tho erection in that city of a now theatre, to bo dovoted exclusively to tho production of Charllo Hoyt's rollicking ab surdities. Manager French has secured for the Now York Garden Theater Alphonse Daudot's now play, "L'Obstaolo." Tho rnimo of the English adaptation will bn "Betrothed" unci it will bo produced In Now York Easter Monday. M. B. Curtis, who docs not seem nblo to repeat tho success ho mado in "Sam'l of Poscn," 1b about to try his luck with another now play, "Plastnek & Co.," now writing for him by Charles A. Byrne and Archibald Gordon. Robert Downing has uchteved so great a. buc cess In "Tho Saracen" that ho is obliged to play that pleco ulmost oxcluslvoly. Next season ho will produce another new historical trngody and give n grand revival of "Tho Taming or tho Shrew." Helen Barry, tho masslvo and no longer young English actress, whose American experiences have not boon flattering, will soon emerge from her retirement again and try her luck with a new play, "All Quit Winners," adapted from tho German bv Bon Teal. Tho McCaull Company at their recent engnge ment.in Cleveland played to tho best business of the season, nnd on Saturday night Manager Hart presented Mr. Harry Askin with a handsome gold locket set with diamonds as u souvenir of tho banner week of 1890-'01. Lillian Russell sat down on Sunday last to an expensive dinner. Ono of tho courses was a brace of golden Chinese pheasants that had won prizes at tho Poultry Show, and had been pre sented to her by tho Poultry and Pigeon As sociation. When living they wcro valued at S50. Mirror. Minnlo Palmer has blossomed out as tho hero ine of a melodrama called "A Mile a Minute," a leading feature of which Is tho appearance on the stage of a full-sized locomotive, puffing smoke und blowing off steam, and looking gen erally us if it were moving nt a tremendous rate of speed. The next season at the Casino will be devoted entirely to Gorman light operas Americanized, tho composers being MlUUecker, Hclmsberger, and Genfie, a work from each having been ac cepted. The immediate successor of "Poor Jonathan" will bo a new piece by Hclmsberger, the composer of tho populur Dresden china ballet. Poor Blind Tom Is in a bad way in a charita ble home in Chicago. He can play no moro owing to palsy, und his fortune has been cnten up. Tom was placed in St. Mark's Homo before his illness commenced, and at first there was re joicing among hiB fellow-inmates, but he Is now helpless, and tho uselessness of tho Heaven-born gift of genius without a business head to man age it is aguin attested. On an interesting programme of tho Howard Athenaeum of twenty years ago aro found tho names of Messrs. Charles H. Drew, William H. Crane, Thomas Whipple, and E. A. McDowell, all playing In the burlesque of "The Invisible Prince." Another programme of the same sea son bears tho names of Mr. Joe Murphy, In Irish specialties, and Miss Emily lilgl. in n Hungarian ballet dtvcrtlssmcnt. Times have changed. Boiton Home Journal. While Roslna Voices wns filling a recent en gagement in Detroit a combination which had been playing "She" found itself stranded nnd without a cent of money. Tho news reached Miss Volces's ears, who, without moro ado, personally paid tho hotel bill of each ono of the unfortu nates, bought for them railroad tickets to their homes, and forced upon each ono, in addition, a sufficient amount of cash to cover "incidentals" on their journey home. Because Joseph Jefferson placed his reminis cences in tho Century and in a book other actors aro hot after similar distinction. The book pub lishers and newspaper editors of Now York aro besought to print tho recolleotlons of actors who aro of only a middling size in their profession. Tho manuscripts aro not only offered free of charge, but, when the writers nro told that their work needs revision, thoy aro ready to pay all tho costs of reconstruction. "Tho truth is," said a member of a book house, "that actors' manuscripts were plenty and not wanted beforotho hit of Jefferson's auto biography was mndo. It was a good thing for him and tho Century both, but tho operation can't bo repeated right away. If Booth would writo his experiences on tho stage I would pay him 320,000 for enough copy to make a good sized volume. But Booth won't listen to tho idea, and there isn't nnotucr actor allvo in America except Jefferson, of course whoso autobiography would not bo regarded as a self-advertisement." Zoological Parle Expenditures. Mr. Atkinson, of Pennsylvania, from the Committee on Expenditures in tho Treasury Department, reported back to the House yes terday a resolution calling on tho Secretary of tho Interior for information as to tho expendi tures mado for tho Zoological Park in tho District of Columbia.
