""" ' """" 1 II THE WORLD: FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 15, 1893. If) Kill IT THE STAGE DOOR. Rosina VokoR Should Have Hod a Farewell Benefit, Clara MorrU's Husband Now Acting in Her Company. Some surprise has been expressed that Miss Itoslnt. Vokea and her husband, Cecil CIbj. should have been allowed to depart quietly and almost furtively from these shores on Wednesday, as though they had bee , unwelcome strangers and were sneaking away unwanted. Miss Yokes, In Ill-health and retired from the stage; her husband, one of the most popular men In the profession, In sor row and perplexity, sailed away with scarcely a good-by. Said a well-known manager yesterday: "It Is a great shame that no faieweil performance was given for the benefit of Miss Vokes. Business has been very bad Indeed with her for some time, but she and her husband j were too proud to admit that a benefit would have been of any assistance. Yet It would have been, and I know It. The Clays have a large family, and Rosina Vokes will probably never act again. She is worse than the public believe her to be. They have a little house In Devon shire, England and nothing else. A more charming couple never came to this country. They were recklessly charitable. They gave right and left. Clay never refused a demand, and Miss Vokes 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. They were always doing something kind; nnd much of what they have done has never been told. It was done quietly and nobly. The actors In their company had a 'soft snap' of It. Clay used to provide them with sleeping-cars and luxuries of every description. Miss Vokes deserved A rousing $10,000 benefit, and Mr. Irv ing would, I know, have been delighted to appear at It. If I had been In town I would have ar'inged 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 "bad 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 Fatlnee performances of "1,'Knfant rodlgue" In this city. He negotiated with Daniel Frohman, who would have Jieen pleased to accommodate this cliarm lng pantomime at his house, had It not been for the peculiar disposition of the orchestra at the Lyceum. The pianist of "1,'Hnfiint Prodlgue" company would have had to be stationed upon the stage, which would have maue his work al most imposlb'.e. This pantomime has not had a fair Inning In Now York up to the present. At Daly's Theatre, It was unhappy and mlBplaced. Such a piece needs an appropriate setting. "LL,n fant Prodlgue" Is now in (Janada. a a 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," but he Is not In the last row, by any means. In Cleveland, this week, he turn been playing the part of Duval pcre. In "Camille," and they ay that he was not at all bad. Harriott is a peculiar, fussy little Mian, who at tends to every detail of hs wife's busi ness. At rehearsals. It Is he who plays lior part; they also assert that he orders her dresses, and drills her company. It isn't, every Mar who has such an ac- t'om'modatlna husband. Nell Burgess has postponed his rt?turn to the stage until next Autumn. He will remain dramatically Idle until then. His new play Is completed, but there are some "mechunlcal effects" upon which work has yet to be done. Paul Ke.ter. the exce?dingly youthful nuthor of "Zamar," now being played at the Star Theatre, collaborated with Miss Minnie Maddern and evolved "The Countess Roudlne " a drama produced by Mme. Modjeska at the 1'nlon Square Theatre In January, 1892. It was a sort of "Fedora" drama, and met with little success. In "Zainar" Kestor has done much better, and the Indications are that he has a bright future. Two nimble-footed young men aDpoartd In "1492" at Palmer s Theatre Wednes day night, and caused what the fcvUvu press ugents would call a "cyclone of applaud!. They did some very orls'.Tial dancing in the Madison Square H'.tr.e. They have since been identified os Car roll and Gregory, who were ottlOng the btightest of the lads known an the tigers In "Adonis" when itlce nnd Dlxoy were in a partnership that should never have been broken. Walter .lones, by the bve, In his tr.tinp .'peclalty, has intro duce! c. n.'-w "pantomime prelude," which involves s. baric bench, a. novc! r. .t'liin; girl, a dude, an applewoma.t, an liioh policeman nnd Geurgc Francis Tiuln. Miss Kato D.ivls, who was happy In ' such Btolcsque ch.cacleri-.ations as the Spanish mother In "Miss Heljctl," and the teacher of calisthenics In "Aunt Uridyl," uas becii engaged to pl'iv an ec centric rpliifller called Absurdarla In "Vcn-is" when (hat work is produced at the Garden Theatre by the Camilla ( D'Arvll'.e Opera Company. v a A pleising affair known as "Black Hawk"-," In which wild horses and act ing llfge c.ro more conspicuous than men and women, !;i being dene In England, nnd billed ns "the greatest American dram" of the n;;e." The proid author was not at thq dramatists' dinner given in honor of living tiie other day. Some entertaining but far-fetched sto ries of hard limes out of town are told on the i:i. i lie. Charles Frolim-.in's ".lane" company had sum: amusing experiences In the fnr West. In a town culled Provo Mr. Dillingham, the manager, found himself with several bushels of wheat, a box of Klckapoo Indian med icine und ten pairs of shoes, and some drucL', on his hands. These were plnced upon the table when he was counting up as a part of the evening's receipts. Mr. Dillingham objected. He reminded I the manager of the theatre that the members of the company were all In good health, and declared that Miss Yenmans had eight pulra of shoes of her own. The wheat was not necessary as u table delicacy, since all hotel bills were pam. 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 may seem, all these articles were actually offered. It Is said, and accented as admission to the theatre. The locil manager makes an exchange In cas'.. 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 scats. This mill like the good old days.

Young men had become afflicted with a pasilon for Caroline wartime gal iMtl, three decades back.

Interesting State of Affairs in Local Athletio Circles. liny State's Clrenl Elbowing In the I,. A. W. , An Interesting; ntate of affair bftl in is. ii in local athletic circles, the result of the permission granted by the Metro politan Association A. A. V . to the newly f jrnerl American Athletic Club to give an amateur boxing show next month. It Is likely that the American A. Ci Will not be allowed to give lis show, or, at least, if It does, It will be under the ostensible management of some recognised Metropolitan Associa tion club. i The American A. C. recently submitted to the Metropolitan Apsorlation a list of its ofllcet'H and members and a copy of Its laws, and on the strength of this It was allowed to register dales 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 hi the land ten years ago. The Old club has been 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 Home doubt as to the genuineness of the new club. The mutter was called to the attention of "Father Bill" Curtll, and In looking over the membership list of the Ameri can A. C. No. '1 he failed to ilnd any names that were In any way familiar In athletics. So " Father Rill" hns sus pended the registration and Is wonder ing why the registration wan ever granted. It Is agreed on all sides that it would be rough 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 Is to have the show given under the nom inal management of some recognized club, and this method will probably be resorted to. In the . mean time "Father Hill" Curtis will probably see to It that more care la hereafter shown In the reg i ihtratlon of dates for new organizations. Comparisons are sometimes odloua. Particularly Is this true to New York St Ate bicyclists, when their I A. V. State Division is compared to that of the neighboring Btate, Massachusetts. With several thousand more wheelmen In New York, the Mate Division membership Is not nearly ho large as the Massachusetts Division, consequently not so powerful. The Massachusetla State Council, by Its superior hustling abilities, has made Its division the banner division of the Is. A. W. a position which New York ought to hold. The Massachusetts Division has Just held Its annual meeting, and among In teresting facts brought out, was the one that 50 per cent, of the net gain In L. j A. W. membership the pat year came from the Hay State, whose membership Is now .16, as against 4,670 a year ago. I The Chairman of the Hlglits and Prlvl- 1 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 M. W. Robinson, of the Division Racing Board, made an Interesting re port upon the recent racing season. The Committee distributed 500 copies of the racing rules during the year, and there by prevented many misunderstandings. W. J. A., In writing to "The Evening World" on the football situation, says: i "1 saw Crescent play Yale and Prince ton play Orange, but as an exhibition of . football it was a dead failure. To my mind it was worse than a dogfight, as the players jumped at one another, butted and struck each other nearly all the time." W. J. A. probably has a vivid imagina tion. It Menu hardly conulstent that a man who would attend a dogfight would criticise football for Its roughness, but tbkt Is neither here nor there. He makes the following interesting sugges- i Hon : "1 should like to see the Englishmen j 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." The question is being asked In rela tion to the billiard tourney In progress here, how will It be settled in case It If a tie all around, as It has a good chance of being. Slosson and Ives dls cusaed 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 player present, or, if played In Madison Square Concert Hall, that no admission be charged. "If we go charging," ssld the Student, "people might cry hlnpo dmme, as they did when Schaefer, vig naux and I played, and there was a tie three times."

Then had come that furewell moment when he was about departing for broader fields to give his ombltions play. "Answer me! Answer me finally!" he had demanded. At that critical moment she had ad mired his manner. He had given no in dication of a lack of hope. She had hesitated an Instant. A denner film had 'overspread her eyes.

Shannon, thirty-one years old, of 521 West Twenty-sixth street, w.is committed to the Tombs without ball this mornilUl by Police .Justice Meade, to await the action of the Coroner. Shannon, It Is charged, while driving one of Ilernard Hlgllu's trucks late yes terday afternoon ran over an unknown colored man In front of 37H Itroadway, Causing the man's death. The Body of the man was taken to the I.eonard street police 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, R feet 6 inches tall, with iron gray hair, black mustache nnd goatee. He wore a black overcoat, dark sack coat, two pairs of trousers, one of them a black striped pair, S blue striped Jumper, red tennis shirt and two under shirts. 1 Shannon says that the colored man 'rushed from the sidewalk directly In front of the truck horses and towards an I uptown cable car. He fried tn climb on ' the rear platfoi m, 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, am! the name of the grlpman or conductor was I not learned. The police are endeavoring to find the I men in charge of the cable car, and I called at the car stubles last night. 1'p to noon their names were not learned, and no report of the accident had been made at the downtown oliice of the Cable Company.

Sale at our wholesale build ing, on Bleeckcr st corner Greene just west of Broad, way. Open Saturday till 9 P. M. If we were you. we'd rather have an Ulster than a life-insurance policy. The epitaph on many a grave might appropriately read : "He ought to have worn an ulster." JHAMIBLOIM BROS., i Bleecker St., Cor. Creene. ATTACKED BY DEPOSITORS. Owners In the Defunct Runhvllle (Neb.)
