HEARD AT THE STABE DOOR.
ftoina Vokos Should Have Had a Farewell Benefit. Clara Morris's Husband Now Acting in Her Company. Sime surprise has been expressed thst ili9 Koflnp Vokes and her husb.md. Coil Claji should have been allowed to jepart quietly and almost furtively from these shores on Wednesday, ss though they had bee.i unwelcome strangers and i wnc t-neakine; away unwanted. Miss Volte., !n Ill-health and retired from the j rttKi htf husband, one of the most pnpular men In the profession, In s.i- j row and perplexity, sailed away with j scarcely a good-by. Said a well-known ' manager yesterday: "It Is a great shame that no fateweil performance war. giver. , for the benefit of Miss Voltes. Business has been very bad Indeed with her for Lime time, but she and her husband j were too proud to admit (hat a benefit w.iuld have been of any assistance. Yet l would have been, and 1 know It. The Clays have a large family, and Roslna Vnkes will probably never act again. She Is worse than the public believe her to be. They have a little house In Pevon ' shire, Kngland-and nothing rise. A more charming couple never came to Ihls country. They were recklessly rhnrltahle. They gave right and left. Clav never refused a demand, and Miss Voltes used to positively cudgel her brains to devise means to help people. At every benefit her services were offered ' or she sent a check for $100 never less. I Thev were always doing something kind; and much of what they have djne has never been told. It was done quietly and niblv. The actors In their company had a 'soft snap' of It. flay used to provide I them with sleeping-cars and luxuries of every description. Miss Vnkes deserved a rousing 10.OO0 benefit, and Mr. Irv ing would, I know, have been delighted ts appear at It If I had been In town I I would have arranged It. But the Clays ' said nothing, and when you say nothing nowadays you are forgotten." ... The change In management of the James 'A. Heme company from R. M. Field to H. C. Miner, has not made any "had blood." All the actors, with one single exception, have been re-engaged by Mr. Miner. ... Ariel Barney was in the city yester day trying to arrange for a series of matinee performances of "l.'Enfant Prodlgue" In this city. He negotiated with Daniel Frohman. who would have been pleased to accommodate this charm ing pantomime at his house, had it not been for the peculiar disposition of the orchestra at the Lyceum. The pianist of "L'Enfaht Prodlgue" company would have had to be stationed upon the stage, wh.lch would have maue his work al most imposible. This pantomime has not had a fair Inning In New York up to the present. At Daly's Theatre, It was unhappy and misplaced. Such a piece needs an appropriate setting. "L'En fant Prodlgue" Is now In Canada. ... That pleasing and ministerial looking gentleman. F. C. Harriott, the hus band of Miss Clara Morris, has taken to acting, and has joined the dramatic forces of his wife's company Mr. Har riott does not. of course, aspire to "leading business,'1 but he Is not in the last row. by any means. In Cleveland, this week, he has been playing the part of Duval pere, in "Camllle," and they say that he was not at all bad. Harriott is a peculiar, fussy little man, who at tends to every detail of hs wife's busi ness. At rehearsals. It Is he who play her part; they also assert that he orders her dresses, and drills her company. It lan't every star who haa such an ac commodating husband. . Neil Burgess has postponed his return to the stage until next Autumn. He will remain dramatically idle until then. His new play Is completed, but there are some "mechanical effects" upon which work has yet to be done. . I Paul Kester, the exceedingly youthful nt.thor of "Zamar." now being played at the. Star Theatre, collaborated with Miss flnnle Maddern and evolved "The Countess Roudlne " a drama produced by-Mme. Modjeska at the Union Square Theatre In January, 1892. It was a sort of "Fedora" drama, and met with little success. In "Zamar" Kester has done much better, and the Indications are that he has a bright future. , ... Two nimble-footed young men appeared In "H92" at Palmers Theatre Wednes day night, and caused what the festive press agents would call a "cyclone of applause." They did some very original dancing In the Madison Square scene. They have since been identified as Car roll and Gregory, who were among the hilghtest of the lads known as the tlgera In "Adonis" when Rice and Dlxey were In a partnership that should never have been broken. Walter Jones, tay the hve. In his tramp specialty, haa fntro riliced a new pantomime prelude," which Involves a park bench, a novel reading girl, a dude, an applewoman, an Irish policeman and George Francis Tialn. ... .Miss Kate Davis, who was happy In such grotesque characterizations as the Spanish mother In "Miss Helyett," and the teacher of calisthenics in "Aunt liridget," nas been engaged to play an ec centric spinster called Absurdarla In "Venus" when that work Is produced at the Garden Theatre by the Camllle D'Arvlllc Opera Company. ... A pleasing affair known as "Black Hawks," In which wild horBes and act ing dogs are more conspicuous than men - and women. Is being done in England, nn'l wiled as "the greatest American drama of the age." The proud author was not at the dramatists' dinner given in honor of Irving the other day. ... Some entertaining but far-fetched sto ries of hard times out of town are told on the l: i.ilii i. Charles Frohman's "Jane" company had some amusing experiences i" 'he far West. In a town culled Provo Mr. Dillingham, the manager, lound himself with several bushels of wheat, a box of Ktckapoo Indian med icine and ten pairs of shoes, and some drucs. on his hands. These were placed upon the table when he was counting up as a part of the evening's receipts. RHF " ? ' . "-" , IMHpiiPWitiipiMii. .11 it THE WORLD; FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 15, .893. 5 Mr. Dillingham objected. He reminded the manager of the theatre that th member of he company were all In good health, mid declared that Miss, 1 HMU had eight pairs of shoes of hr TfnL. I". what was not necessary aa a lh,e delicacy, since all ho'.el bills were paid. So the manager gave the "Jane" representative his share of the receipts In cash and kept the dry goods for him self. Singular as It mav seem, all these articles were actually offered, it ts said, and accepted as admission to the theatre. The local manager makes an exchange In cash, or uses them himself. In a California town. Mr. Dillingham was surprised to learn that two pounds of prunes, which he found In the box office, represented two very good parquet seats. This sounds like the good old days.

Bay State's Great Showing In the i li. A. W. An Interesting state of affairs ha arisen In local athletic circles, the result "f the permission itranted by the Metro politan Association A. A. I', to the newly for nod American Athletio Club to (rive an amateur boxlna show next month. It Is likely that the American A. C will not be allowed to give Its ' show, or, at least. If It doea, It will be under the ostensible mnragement of some recognized Metropolitan Assocla- j tlon club. The American A, C. recently submitted to the Metropolitan Association a list of Its officers and members ami a copy of Its laws, and on the strenKth of this It was allowed to register dates for a box ing show. The name of the club at tracted the attention of several members of the old American Athletic Club, which was one of the best known athletic organ izations in the land ten years ago. The old club has ben practically dead for a number of years, but Its members didn't relish the Idea of having Its honored name connected with a boxing show, particularly as there was some doubt as to the genuineness of the new club. The matter was railed to the attention of "Father Bill" t'urtts. nml In looking over the membership list of the Amerl csn A. '. No. 2 he failed to find any names that were In any wav familiar In athletics. So " Father BUI" has sus pended the registration and Is wonder ing why the registration was ever granted. It is agreed on all sides that it would he rnugn on those interested In the pro posed noxlng show not to allow It to take place now. Medals have been or dered and paid for. and other arrange ments made The way out of the matter ts to have the show given tinder the nom inal management of some recognized club, and this method will probably be resorted to. In the mean time "Father Bill" Curtis all) probably see to It that more care la hereafter shown In the reg istration of dates for new organizations. ... Comparisons are sometimes odious. Particularly Is this true to New York State bicyclists, when their I,. A. W. State Division Is compared to that of the neighboring Stste, Massachusetts. With several thousand more wheelmen In New York, the Mate Division membership Is not nearly so large as the Massachusetts Division, consequently not so powerful. The Massachusetts State Council, hy Its superior hustling abilities, has made its division the banner division of the L. A. W. a position which New York ouaht to hold. ' The Massachusetts Division has Jut held Its annual meeting, and among In teresting facts brought out. was the one that 50 per cent, of the net gain In I. A. VV. membership the pat year came from the Bay State, whose membership is now f,2M. as against 4,870 a year ago. The Chairman of the Rights and Privi leges Committee recommended that the division furnish legal advice to mem bers free Of charge on matters relat ing to their rights on the roads. Chair man H. W. Robinson, of the Division Racing Board, made an Interesting re port upon the recent raring season. The Committee distributed 500 copies of the racing rules during the year, and there by prevented many misunderstandings. . . 1 W. J. A., In writing to "The Evening World" on the football sltuatlrm, says: j "I saw Crescent play Yale and Prince ton play Orange, but aa an exhibition of football It was a dead failure. To my mind It was worse than a dogfight, aa the players Jumped at one another, butted and struck each other nearly all the time." I W. J. A. probably haa a vivid Imagina tion. It seems hardly consistent that a man who would attend a dogfight would criticise football for Its roughness, but that Is neither here nor there. He makes the following Interesting sugges tion: "I should like to see the Englishmen and Scotchmen of New York, Brooklyn and New Jersey form a League after the style of the Baseball league, and play either Rugby or Association rules, the latter preferred, and perhaps In a few years we might not only have League matches, but International con tests as well." t The question is being asked in rela tion to the billiard tourney In progress here, how will It be settled )n case It I Is a tie all around, as It has a good chance of being. Slosson and Ives dis cussed this matter after their final game last night, and both were In favor of playing it off next week. That seems to be the best solution of the question, and doubtless Schaefer would be agree able, if engagements don't prevent. Slos son suggested that ties be played off In private, with a few friends of each g layer present, or, If played In Madison quare Concert Hall, that no admission be charged. "If we go charging," said the Student, "people might cry hlpDo dreme, as they did when Schaefer, vlg i naux and I played, and there was a tie three times." A despatch from Jacksonville says: Champion Corbett srrlTed In this rlly yester day. H waa I'oafllderably atlrrM up ovar the report that he would he arrvated upon rearblns Jai-kaonvllle. "t am not afraid ot arrest on my own arrount," he aatd.

Driver Shannon Says He Did Not Kill the Man, but Is Held. John J. Shsnnon. thirty-one years old. of .621- West Twenty-sixth street, was committed to the Tombs without ball this morning by Police Justice Meade, to await the action of the Coroner. Shannon, It Is charged: while driving one of Bernard Btglln's trucks late yes terday afterrioon ran over an unknown colored man In front of 372 Broadway, causing the man's death. The Body of the man was taken to the Leonard street ,iollce station, and this morning was removed to the Morgue, no one having called during the night to Identify it. He was apparently about fifty years old, 5 feet Inches tall, with Iron gray hair, black mustache and goatee. He wore a black overcoat, dark sack coat, two pairs of trousers, one of them a black striped pair, a blue striped Jumper, red tennis shirt and two under shirts. Shannon says that the colored man rushed from the sidewalk directly In front of the truck horses and towards an uptown cable car. He tried to climb on the rear platfolm, but struck the gate, bounded back, struck the truck and was tossed like a football under the car. The cable car, according to' Shannon, continued on its way uptown, and the name of the grlpman or conductor was not learnad. The police are endeavoring to find the men In charge of the cable car, and called at the ear stables last night. 1'p to noon their names were not learned, and no report of the accident had been made at the tlowntown office of the Cable Company.

She did It with the same petu lance with which ten vaori before she had ilr.iv.it out the tlrat thread of wlilta, tin- one ray of light In the black dark ness. She took from the bureau's secrot drawer a mull envelope, and from thla abstracted that original curiosity. Sha placed It by the sld of this latter-day 1 cuiin. the black hair, the last remnant of the cascade that had been the ad ir. I rut I m of her school friends. She wound them about her fingers and tied them, then placed them In the envelope. It was the spirit of the gambler In nil moment of detspcratlon with which sha had done this. The world should l.now now thai Caroline could grow old UB fllnchlngly. She picked up a volume of "The Scarlet Letter,'' that wss near at I hand, to steady the envelope while sho wrote simply: I " 1 am a spinster.
