T. Prosecß ion Present tVr!i'en Hypo
thetical Questions io<-the Examination
of il.dical Experts—The Evidence all In
—The Case to Lc Given to the Jury
The insufficient size of tho court room
to acoommodate the attendance upon
prominent criminal cases was thoroughly
demonstrated yesterday at the Hanley
trial, the audience being packed almost
o on the other, while the atmosphere of
the room was hb foui and feted as that aiv
i i a Florida swamp in mid sum
In the afternoon the proceedings peemed
to culnr n inter* it n the e_aj_inition
of medic; 1.! exp.rt testimony, the state ex
amining the w: ith a formula of
hetical questions, to which theyan
l yes or no, which was in every in
stance followed by a eearching cross-exam
ination on the part of the defense.
The state wab ably represented by
County Attorney Egan, associated with
J. W. Willie, E-q., and the defense by Hon.
C. D. O'Brien.
Forenoon Session.
This witness was called by the state and
eaid he visited the prisoner in the county
jail May 28. Here tho defense objected to
witness testifying as both a layman and
expert, and to his telling the jury the story
told him in the jail on this occasion by
the prisoner, which was two days after the
cnme. The theory of the objection was
that the laws of the country did not allow
a mr.n's oonfeesion thus secured to be used
against him in trial. After allusions to
dynamite, three card monte
and cheap mule practices on
the part of both oonnael the
judge decided for the state, to whioh the
defense took exceptions, and the state re
spond its examination.
Made no notes of conversation, and
would not attempt to repeat the language
of th 3 prisoner, who talked freely for half
an hoar ; formed the impression from his
manner, demeanor and general appear
ance that he was a sane man.
The state here gave notice of its inten
tion to use a set of hypothetical questions
in taking the testimony of all the medical
experts which were to be answered " yes "
or"'ho." Tho defense objected to those
questions being used before a copy had
been submitted it, to see If it had objec
tions thereto, claiming this right in the
furtherance of the ends of j_stioe,as a legal
question in court was in the power of the
court to permit or not, and a hypothetical
question not. The court ruled the defense
should see these questions at the noon re
cess ar.d.before they were prdpounded.
Cross-examination —Knew Hanley's his
tory, but did not take it into ao.ount when
examining him at the jail; insanity can
not be determined from a single examina
tion; insane persons are deceptive, and it
is possible for them to relate the details of
a crime committed by them and express
sorrow for it, and still be irresponsible for
itß commission.
At this point a hypothetical or *'dyna
mite" question was propounded to the wit
ness by the defense, to which the state
objs-ted, and the court decided
that it was better to ha ye the set of hypo
thetical questions of the prosecution
asked before any further cross-examina
tion of witness was made.
Was a blacksmith and foreign born; saw
Hanley May 13 and after several talks
bought out his stock and business for
$200. They went to a lawyer and a bill of
sale was made. Saw Hanley often . and
he was not crazy.
Cross examination—Judge Parker drew
the bill of sale, which was signed Thomas
Hanley by his mark. This bill tho de
fense took from the hands of the witness
and showing it to the pay, as in evidence
that at this time Hanley had, includ
ing stock, sold a $1,000 busi
ness for §200 and was not only
ignorant but mentally irresponsible and
inoapacited, and held the paper for their
further examination.
Treated Hanley in hiß illness. His in
sanity might come from other causes, but
he attributed it to his disease. In one or
two conversations with him after his con-
Talc_.e_.e9 he seemed rational; saw him
the week of the shooting, but did not know
whether he was sane or insane.
C-o?3 examination—Would not swear
whether he was sane or insane after his
The court took a recet 3 until 2 p. m. to
enable the counsel and the court to decide
in the iutermission on the form of the
hypothetical questions to be propounded
by the state.
la tha original hypothetical questions
the words "he was addicted to strong drink
and frequently intoxicated," were substi
tuted with "he was aacustomed to the use
of beer and sometimes strong drink." In
disaussions on other alterations the de
fense said that it belonged to the state to
prove the motive for the killing, and that
not a single witness, including Hanley's
wife, had given a particle of testimony to
prove that the delusion of Hanley that
Evan had robbed him or done him any in
jury was true is a single particular, and
that the case hi»ged on the matter of
Ryan's honesty or dishonesty, while the
only witness to prove anything more about
this was the prisoner hims-lf, who was in
competent to testify.
Afternoon Session.
The interest in the trial still continues,
and the c»_rt room was again qrowded
some time b.fore the opening^by an order
ly assemblage. .
The examination of Dr. Boardman was
continued. The first question propound
ed was an hypothetical one, which was ob
jected to by the counsel for the defense,
and in some of the objections the court
sustained him, and at last the following
wa? propounded, which wa3 acceptable:
Supp»Fe a man to be at times incoherent
in his speech, noi usually given to con
nected discourse, but rambling in his con
versation, pas3ing rapidly and frequently
and without apparent cause from one sub
ject to another; suppose that this man
was proud of his muscular power and
boasted often of his powers and prowess
a3 a pugilist, also that he boasted of his
• ability and influence as a politician, when,
in fact, he had no suoh ability or influ
ence; suppose that in reference to the
election of the secretary of
a voluntary association, this man
boasted that the election of
a curtain person to that position was due
to hi., efforts and influence, and particular
ly that curiam members voted for the suc
cessful candidate because they knew that if
they voted otherwise they would be thrown
down stairs or out of the window by this
man, and nonce dared not vote otherwise.
when as a matter of fact the election of
the person aforesaid as secretary of the
aforesaid organization WE3 not due to the
efforts or influence of the subject of thia
inquiry, nor did any of the members of
such organization vote for the successful
candidate for secretary by reason of
tho fear aforesaid. Suppose, also, that tbe
subject of this inquiry^ without apparent
cause, would at times laugh, and would
walk in cold weather with head uncovered
and would mutter and talk to himself.
Suppose, further, that without apparent
cause he did, at times, pass his friends on
the street without recognition; that on tho
day of a municipal election he was ob
serv lible witness standing near
the polling place talking and gesticulating
vehemently and, as the witness thought,
foolishly. Suppose, further, that he was
by tr-de a blacksmith, and had followed hi 3
hie wife and family
thereby i- be was aceus
i to the nee of bc>„r _nd strong drink,
and wa« sometimes intoxicated ; that, in
.rly part of the year 1883, a~
some time prior to the 17th day of March
in that i-ar, he was engaged in following
bis trade as a blacksmith in partnej
one Thomas Byan; that on the 17th
day of March in said year he became ill
with an acute atteek of pneumonia, i_ci,
after a partial recovery, encountered a re
lapse whioh culminated in typhoid
pneumonia; that daring the
continuence of this disease
he was, at times, highly delirious; that of
this disease he became convalescent on or
about the first day of May then next en
suing; that soon thereafter he visited an
engine house of the St. Paul mnnicipal
fire department (he having for many years
been in the habit of resorting to such en
gine house,) and applied to an employe in
said fire department, that is to say, the
captain of the company of firemen sta
tioned at said engine house —suoh captain
having no authority to enlist or employ
fireman—and solicited of such captain an
appointment as fireman; that upon being
informed that such captain had no right to
employ him in the capacity aforesaid, and
upon being referred to the chief of the fire
department and to the board of fire jcom
missioners, he became violently angry,
swung in the air a cane whioh he carried,
and declared that the captain could give
him a place if he desired, and said to the
captain, "Yoa look out for yourself, if
you don't put me in the fire department;"
suppose that soon after the latter occur
rence, he disputed with some persons
about the price of potatoes, and denied
that potatoes had ever borne as high a
price as one named by those conversing
with him, and Boon thereafter, and in the
same conversation., had declared that he
had paid for potatoes a higher price than
yet named; that he cried at times and ex
pressed apprehension that his
family would come to want, and that
this apprehension was especial
ly prominent during the oojitinaance
of his attack of pneumonia, both in his
rational and irrational intervals; tha* he
related the story of a runaway, and after
a brief interval, changed it to a story
about the arrest of one Mcintosh, and then
uttered some trifling remarks about a
turkey, appealing to cne of tbe bystanders
to corroborate his statements; supposa
that three or four weeks after so far recov
ering from the attack of pneumonia al
ready referred to, as to be able to leave his
house and go about town, he negotiated a
sale of his blacksmith shop, went to the
office of an attorney in oompany with the
persona to whom the sale was made, dis
played there no aberrant mental symp
toms, talked intelligently of the
terms and price of 6ale
and of the property sold, directed the
preparation of a bill of sale, in accordance
with such terms, and then and there exe
cuted such bill of sale; that at or about the
date of suoh sale, and after said sale, he
stated in conversation with various per
sons that his former partner, Byan, had
robbed aDd cheated him, and in connec
tion let it be understood that the evidence
before you leaves indeterminate in
your mind the ques»ion whether said Byan
had or had not actually cheated him—that
in conversation with one witness, after
stating that Byan had robbed and
cheated him, he said, in reference to Byan,
"If I do not get a settlement with Byan, I
will down him," or, "shoot him," or, "put
a ball through him." And, in conversa
tion with another witness, after stating
that Byan had robbed and cheated him, he
displayed to suoh witness a revolver, and
uttered the expression, "If Byan makes a
break at me I will shoot him." That Boon
after, and within two or three days after
Booh threats, he met the person whom he
had thus acoused of robbitg and cheating
him, and had thus threatened to 3hoot, and
after an ordinary salutation, made a d«
mand for certain account book?; that upon
receiving the answer, "What books?'
or some answer denying his demand, or
failing to receive an answer, he drew from
his pocket the revolver before referred to,
and fired therewith at the person threat
ened as aforesaid; that upon tha retreat of
the person so assailed, he followed suoh
person, and fired at him another and a
fatal shot from such revolver; that after
firing the last shot, he remarked, "That's
the way to down 'em," or, "That's the way
I fix 'em," or, "That's the way I do it,
that's me, when I say a thing I "mean it;"
suppose him arrested for this deed, and
charged therewith as a criminal offense
and lodged in confinement; that daring
the second night of such con
finement, he passes the night in
enacting, ao far as possible,
the scenes of ordinary horse shoeing and
blacksmithing, calling for tools and nails;
tnat he took hold of the foot of the witness
describing those acts, and declared his in
tention to put a shoe upon him, as upon a
horse, and in calling for such tools and
nails, he frequently addressed or called by
name some person named Byan, Byan be
ing the name of his former partner and of
the person shot as aforesaid:
Question —Basing your opinion upon
the foregoing hypothetical statement,
what would you say was th 9 mental conai
tion of that man at the time of the shoot
ing described, with reference to sanity or
insanity ?
Answer—l shoald not regard him as in
In answer to another question as to
whether, from the question asked he con
sidered that one who actedjas the prisoner
did, was capable to ande_3tand hie act, the
witness said, he was.
Cress-examined—There grades of
intellect. Those in our large asylums are
nsaally from the anedaoated and ignorant.
Hard work and not sufficient food would
be a cause for insanity. Am not able to
say that this is more among the lower
-lasses. I should not grade on a high scale
one who could not count four or five at
forty-two years of age. It is not a fact
that there would be organic defect, but
there might have been. He would be of a
very low and weak order of intellect and it
would be more apt to lead to insanity and
make him less capable to meet the trials of
life. A delusion is a belief in something
that is not a fact. Things preying upon a
man will become a delusion, and one in his
jase have less power of resistance. One
that recovers from a delr>ium|semetimes
retains these notions anu sometimes not.
One is almost always impaired after a se
vere sickness, and has less ability after
ward to make a discrimination. May make
i fact afterwards of a delusion; this is
possible, but hardly probable. The lower
orders may have a greater ten
_enoy to exaggeration, and suoh a mind
would not be able to resist as much as one
Bduoated, and might have a fu .' prostra
tion. A delusion is one a r the most im
portant of the forms of insanity, and may
not be seen in any other thing. He
m ght.beable to dojall other things and yet
be insane in this. If a man is habitually
incoherant it wonld indicate that his mind
is defective in its workings and might
probably succumb more easily. A man
getting angry without canse might be
caused by his not controlling himself. If
I knew- a man I would not call that a
cau_e; rneeli_g and talking may be symp
toms of insanity. In reference to his im
probable doings it would have no Bpecial
significance and might be only boasting,
bat if habitual it would be insignificant.
I r 11 was true that Byan had not cheated
him and his having the idea that he had
cheated him it would show symptoms of
insanity, and he would probably not be
able to know what he was doing. Insanity
often breads out into violence, and he will
inflict i_ juries on his best friends, or may
take his own or his friend's life and will
remember the case afterwards, and is the
rule ia the case of enicida, homicide,
and ho may afterwards express sorrow
or not. Depression m the case of delusion
will cause tears and would be symptoms of
insanity and would prepare for crime.
If not attributed to alcoholic stimulants
such actions as are in the hypothetical
question, would almost Bhqw insanity. In
sanity is _ vexed question in the medical
profession. Dr Bartlett and I disagreed
on a case of insanity.
Be-dirict —Wa would _ot have disagreed
if the defense had brought out their c_6e
clearly. The explosion of anger at the en
gine house is not a symptom of insanity,
neither is that of throwing people down
and doing impossibles, a sign of insanity,
but more of the man being a liar. If Byan
had really clutohed him, then his notion
was not a delusion. Violsnt aota might
not be mania. It would not be a Bymptom
of insanity if a man was found in tears
when he found that his wife and family
weie in want and liable to suffer.
Be-cross —A person who is of insane
mind may, after the act, think that the
person whom he has killed is alive, bat it
is a very rare circumstance.
Be-dirict—We6ping and mental depres
sion is one of tbe forms of delirium, and
mental depression is a consequenoe of
typhoid pneumonia.
I live at St. Peter, and am a physician
for thirty-two years. Am superintendent
of the hospital for the insane there for
thirteen years. I remember the hypotheoal
questions, and would say that tbe man
might be sane, but be subject to all these
acts, and I should not feel safe in signing
a certificate that he was insane. He was
capable of understanding what he did at
the time of the shooting of Byan.
Cross-Exa mined. If he had the dilu
sion that Byan had cheated him then I
would say he was insane. I heard Dr.
Board man, and concur with him. As to
the case in which I was with him and dis
agreed Dr. Boardman was more familiar
with the case than I was.
The case then closed, and the jury were
excused until 10 next day, when the argu
ments would be entered npon. Tbe dis
cussion of law points was entered into by
Mr. Willis, the assistant county attorney,
who will finish in the morninr?.

Syllabus—Action for defamation.
Tiie answer denied the publication of
the words charged and then in mitigation
of damages alleged previous piovooation
by plaintiff, and that whatever was said by
the defendant on the occasion referred to
in the complaint was spoken the heat of
pasßion caused by the abusive language of
plaintiff. Held, that these were not incon
sistent—that the matter set up in mitiga
tion did not admit the > speaking of the
words charged.
In the afternoon plaintiff attacked -he
defendant with abusive and provoking
language and renewed the quarrel in die
evening of the same day at whioh last time
ihe defamatory words weie alleged to have
been spoken. Held, that the provocation
in the afternoon was so direct and nearly
cotemporaneoas that it was competent to
be in mitigation of damages.
The defamatory charge being larceny,
evidence of the plaintiff's bad general
reputation for honesty and integrity was
competent in mitigation;
In impeaching a witness by attacking
his character, the inquiry must be con
fined to his general reputation for truth
and veracity, following Moreland vs. Law
rence, 23 Minn. 84.
In an action for defamation a new trial
will not bo granted because a verdict for
defendant should have been for plaintiff
for nominal damages. Order affifmed. ■

The Annual 7V_«etinfi; Held Yesterday—
Gratifying Condition of the jSociety—ln
teresting Report of the Secretary.
The annual mesting or the Home of th-
Friendies3 association was held Wednes
day afternoon, Jarruary 23, at the Y. M. C.
A. room?, Wabashaw street. There was a
large attendance and encouraging interest
shown. The following reports were read:
Secretary's Report If onu- for the Friendless
Tho board of manageiß of the Home for
tbe Friendless association close their sev
enteenth year of labor with glad hearts.
The successful completion of their new
home calls for expressions of thankfulness
to our Heavenly Father, who has blessed
the efforts of this society from the time of
it small beginning in the home on Wal
nut street to the present, which finds us so
comfortably housed. Tc-day wa witness
the fulfillment of a prophscy grander in
its details than could possibly have been
the thought of its author fourteen years
ago. In the report of our lately retired
secretary for the year 1870, Boon after the
occupancy of the house we have just va
cated, we find the following significant
words: "We are working for the future.
When St. Paul shall have rounded out the
oirsle of its growth a state
ly edifice will stand where
we, to day, in weariness and perplexity lay
humble but firm foundations. We till the
stony Boil, and strive with anxious oare to
fosier the tender growth of the young sap
ling, which, in thoae bright future days
will be the aoble tree, under which many
will rest and be refreshed." Our new and
commodious building to-day bears witness
that the tallage of the stony soil has not
been in vain. Though for various reasons
most of the workers of those days are no
longer with us, their deeds of faith and
love are fully matched by some who are
now in our ranks. The canvas* for funds
to ereot so large a building has tried the
mettle of some of our managers and taxed
their energies to the utmost. Only per
sons well adapted to the work, and pos
sessing the confidence of the community
could hare collected the large sum of
$8,240 in one year. Yet this has been
done by oar president and one of the
managers. Surely such as these are worthy
successors of the founders of this institu-
To our president, who has with such
quiet persistency superintended the build
ing of the structure with a degree of in
terest that oould not have been surpassed
if it had been her own, the
benefactors of this association are
greatly indebted. In the mtn. yof the
present generation, at least, it can only be
regarded as a monument to her efficient
faithfulness and energy. The new build
ing, with its large rooms, well warmed,
light and airy, is in strong contrast with
the old. When the latter moved from it*
foundations on April 3d, its work of shelter
ing the homeless ones was practically over
for, at a meeting held oe the same day of
tha removal the board had advised that,
"on account of the condition of tbe house
no new inmates bo admitted unless abso
lutely necessary." But our work in 1883
has not been entirely devoted to the erec
tion of a building; for, notwith
standing a partial closing of
the house during six months
of the year, we have reoeived fifty-three
inmates who represented nearly all the
forms of distress with which we are con
versant. Some came for a temporary
rest, some till they could hear from friends,
two were sent to the reform school, one
to the imbeciles' home in Faribault and
several have been provided with passes to
their various places of destination.
During a single month .at the beginning
of tho year, four mothers with young
children were temporarily cared for; and
the case of four motherless children whose
father had been taken from them by the
stern hand of the law, was one that ap
pealed strongly to the managers. All
their meeds were quickly supplied, and
now the older ones in school and the
younger at home, they find for the first
time the comforts of jife.
Thirtj-one of the inmates have been
adults and twenty-two children.
Only one has died, fn the last two
months unusual demands have beea made
upon our resources. During November
thirteen were received, and the close of
December finds us with a family larger
than ever before.
The great prosperity of our city and
stale during the past few years has no
where been shown in a more marked man
ner than iv the relative decrease of de
mands upon our charities, but past experi
ence shows that euoh seasons are not
perpetual, and unless the history of other
cities fails to repeat itself in ours we shall
soon be obliged to increase our various
branches of cb.arit_.bla work.
As was stated in our report lest year the
managers of this society have long felt
the necessity of a permanent home for
aged women, i _ our state, who with the aid
of friends could provide for the payment
of a sura of money that would assist in
enabling us to insure them a oomfortable
home during fkeir declining years.
As soon as our building was completed,
thus raafci_g this work possible, the board
took action upon the subjeot and
appointed a committee to report definite
rules for the government of this
new branch of work. The following were
Bule 1. That a committee on admis
sions be appointed by the board, whose
duty it shall be to inquire into thecircnm
stancos and character of those who make
application and report to the board all the
faots relating to eaoh case. They shall
also keep a record of names of applicants,
ages, place of birth, residences, date of ap
lication, persons by whom recommended,
time and terms of admission and any
other faots deemed important. The case
of no applicant for admission will be con
sidered which is not reoommended by the
committee on admissions.
Bule 2. Applicants must be persons of
good character, in reduced circumstances,
not less than sixty years of age and mu3t
faav. been resident, of the state not less
than two years.
Bule 3. Approved applicants before
they are received into the home shaUf
be required to pay an admission
fee of $300, and no person
will be received even as a temporary in
mate, without an entrance permit signed
by the admission oommittee.
Bule 4. All inmates shall be received
on a probation of six months, after which
time the boerd shall act definitely on the
case of eaoh one _o received, and if not
made a permanent inmate the admission
fee (deducting board at the rate of $3 per
week) shall be returned. Bat no proba
tionary inmate shall be received until she
shall have signed an agreement of whioh
the following is a oopy:
Do you understand, consent and agree,
tha. your admission to the home is not by
, any reason of any right, or in considera
tion of any payment on your part, but be
cause the proper authorities, so far as they
now know you, think you are worthy of
its care; that you are at all times to be
subject te and to obey eaoh rule for the
regulation and management of the home
and the conduct of its in
mates; that you cheerfully and without
question will render such assistance m the
necessary work of the home as the matron
shall require of you; that your remaining
in it is to be wholly within the control of
the beard, and that, if at any time, a maj
ority of the board present at any regular
meeting, for good reasonß, shall think it
expedient, they shall have a right to expel
you from it and eanse yon to be removed
therefrom; provided, however, that if it
shall be within one year after yonr ad
mission, the snm paid on 'yonr admission
sb_li be returned to yon, les3 three dollars
for each week yon shall have been an in
mate of the home.
In the resignation of our faithful secre
tary, Miss Kate W. Nichols, we have met
with a real loss. Her inability to serve us
longer i 3 sincerely regretted and we fully
realize, now, how mnch we have been
favored in having her able services daring
the long term of fifteen years.
We wish to remember wilh thacka
the St. Psal Ideals, who
aided our building fund so ma
terially by their generous gifts ; also the
following named churches and individuals,
who assist us by each furnishing a room in
thenew home: Day.an avenue Presbyterian,
First Methodist Episcopal, House of Hope,
Plymouth CongregationaL,Central Presby
terian, Mount Zion, Jackson street Metho
dist Episcopal, Firstßaptist, St. Paul's,
First Presbyterian, Mrs. Alexander Ram
sey and Mrs. G. Q. White.
Christmas at the Home was ma-e bright
by a beautiful tree filled with oat.dies and
toys, tbe gift of thoughtful fri.nds, to
children who had never been treated so
royally before. The kind remembrance of
a fri«nd from Rochester who signed her
self " Grandma" was also a soarc3 of great
enjoyment to them.
For these, and all other favor 3 rendered
by hosts of friends, the grateful apprecia
tion of the Board would prompt per.oaal
thanks, bat as that is impossible, they

Nothwithstanding our sacceis
in raising funds for the
new building we find ourselves with a debt
of about $3,000. This has been tempora
rily provided for by a loan, but efforts
will be made to decrease it as fast as pos
Athough with this debt to provide for,
our new work and the increased expense
of the large building, wa are well aware
we assume a much greater harden than
ever before, we enter the new year with no
fear. The story of the past has shown
the necessity of this charity, and it ia only
necessary that its needs should be recog
nized by our benevolent citizens t_ find
s-ffleiant funds forthcoming. The large
snm already mentioned as having been
given by them, the past year, proves this
more effectually than wordß can do. Be
speotfa!!y submitted.

And it was Soon Disposed of in the Slnnici
pal Court Yesterday Morning.
Yesterday was a cold day in the police
court. The deft pencil of Sir Jack Frost
had been busy over nisjht, and it was a
draw a3 to whether the frescoing on the
window panes, or the Florentine tints on
the noses of the bummers wa3 thB most
artistic. The docket was light and easily
disposed of.
Geo. Jeffers, the oullud gem'meg who
tickled a brother named Charles page with
. a razor, was arraigned on the charge of
I' assault with a dangerous weapon. The
county attorney was absent at the murder
trial, and the hearing was continued until
the 25th inst.
Charles Gilbert had been paralyzed
drunk, and it just cost him five bills.
The case of C. P. Benson, charged with
swindling the horny-handed son 3 of toil
out of their wealth by mean? of tho em
ployment agency dodge, was continued to
the 25th.
Christ Johnson was up on the charge of
stealing a pick-ax and some leather
thongs. The Searing went over until to
A. D. Smith, maoed hi 3 room mate out
of $17 oold cash, and this case was also
continued until to-day on account of the
absence of the complainant.
Joseph Frecht, a saloon keeper, was up
for going one eye on a Teuton named
EiBob.ebacb.er. They quarreled overj a bill
and Frecht caromed two blows on the other
fel'ow's oplio. It was a bad looking peeper
and the court thought the blows were
worth $10 each. Justice was mollified to
the extent of $20, which he paid.
St. Louis, Jan. 23. —Seven small busi
ness houses werB burned on Monday night
: and the supposed loss is about $15,000.
The Second Night of "Oniy a Farmer's '
Daughter—The Next Attraction, "Uearta
of Oak*'—Clara Morris.
The Opera house contained a slim audi
j ence last night to witness the closing per
! f crmance of "Oniy a Farmer's Daughter.''
The acting of the rather improbable plot
was fair and tho strong points were re
ceived with favor.
Ttie sale of seats for the engagement of
tha "H._rt3 of Oak company opens at the
Grand at 9 o'clock this morning. This
realistic and beautiful drama will be
given at the Opera house two nights and

Gband Rapids, Mich., Jan. 23- '
theatrical sensation of the season in this
city was the appearance of Clnra \iorr: 1 at
Hedmond's Opera house in "Article 47."
Although a large certainty was paid to
secure Miss Morris, the local management
profited largely, since the house was com
pletely filled at $2 a seat. Nothing as
grand as Miss Morris' acting was ever be
fore seen in this city, and the Opera house
will bo too small to hold the crowd to
morrow evening, when the great aotr«ss
will be seen in "New Magdalen."
Manager Scott has secured special rates
over all the railroads to St. Paul during
the Clara Morris engagement.
Dramatic Notes.
Lotrta has been engaged to open the new Casi
no Theatre at Washington next f_li.
Ann Dunn formerly an actrese, who died in
London a few days ago at the age >f thirty-nine,
was nearly nine feet high and weighed over five
hundred pounds. She measured three feet six
inches around tho shoulders.
Miss Fortescue, the actress, has been invited
by the earl and Countess Cairns to spend a few
days with them at Lindisfarne, Bournemouth.
It is expected that Miss Forteecue's marri_ge
with Lord Garmoyle will take place in June.
Me. Thes. W. Koene is the latest and one of
the most successful of American tragedians. It
is only a few years ago that he was playing iv
the stock company. At Wood's Museum N. V., lie
was almost wholly ignored by the press, except
tobegnyedasa ''scene chewer." Four yours
ago his present manager, Mr. Hayden, saw him
supporting Mr. Frank Bangs in Baltimore and
proposed to make a star of him. How far ho
has buccscd.d may be gueseed when it is said
that he has made $-J,U.» during the past year.
Charles H. Crosby, well known in the theatri
cal profession and for many years the business
manager of Clara Louise Kellogg died January
17, at his residenca in Philadelphia. The de
ceased was a son of Dr. John C. Crosby of New
Haven, and was a cousin of the famous can tat
rico whose business ho managed so long and so
successfully. There isnotat.wn of any pro
minence in the United States where he was not
known nor a hotel where he was not welcomed
as a gonial guest. About a year ago a severe
attack of hemorrhaga of tho lungs incapacitated
Mr. Crosby from regular attention to his busi
ness, and since that time he has been gradually
failing. Daring the past three months he has
been wholly confined to his room. The inter
ment w_s made in Greenwood . Ho leaves a
wife, but no family.
