JP: -, In connection with the revival of
C'S "The Candidate" at the Criterion last
Hry Thursday, It may be recalled that when
H'j the play was originally produced at the
H same theatre in November, 1884, Charles
fl Wyndham announced, In reply to the
WffL calls for the "author," that the gentle-
mMk. man In question was In the "House," 1.
Dif ., House of Commons, but otherwise
Hlo-l jj gave no clue as to his Identity. "The
BJt,'' Candidate" was adapted by Justin
BnJ Huntley McCarthy from "Le Depute
Hf De Bomblgnac," by Alexander Blsson,
HIa' which had been played at the Francois
Bk some months previously without con-
Hi aplouous success.
Btjg, The cast for the revival Includes, be-
B.iji sides Wyndham himself as the volatile
BLW 19 Viscount Oldacre, Messrs. William
swm r Blakelcy, George Glddens, C. W. Somer-
KfK f.J set. Miss Fanny Coleman, Miss Pattle
B$; A Browne and Miss Mary Moore.
BjTWj' Miss Lole Fuller, the serpentine
dancer, has Just completed a ten days'
engagement at the Alcasar Music Hall,
In Brussels, where she was paid GO per
cent, of the receipts. During her re
cent visit to London with Mile. Yvette
Guilberjt, a contract was drawn up by
which the two ladles were to be stars
ot a variety entertainment at Daly's
Theatre on the three nights In the week
when Eleonore Duse was not acting.
For their se-vces they were to receive
60 per cent of the profits. The pro
posed rranrement, however, fell
through, and Yvette uullbert went to the
Empire and Lolo Fuller to tho Strand,
Terry's and Trafalgar.
Miss Blanche Massey will probably
play the part of the heroine In the
'"Gaiety Gill," when that play Is taken
to America.
Mr. Wlllard opens nt the Comedy
Theatre with "The Middleman," on June
15. The cast Is being arranged by W.
H. Grimths.
It now appears that Sir Edward Lbw
son did not wish Clement Scott to Ignore
the attack mnde on him by Robert
Buchanan, and that this Is the reason
that the affair will, after all, be fought
out In the law courts.
Ship Robert Dixon Returns from
a Disastrous Voyage.
Blet Yellow Fever at Rio nntl Ilur
r.i'iiuc Cuming Hack.
That the rain and wind storms which
played arojnd the vicinity A New York
for the past two weeks were not con
fined to this Bectlon Is evident from the
stories told by the captain and crew
of Incoming vessels. Far out at sea,
the roughest kind of wether was en
countered, and a certain amount ot un
easiness Is felt for the smaller craft
that are known to have been In the
storm's path.
Capt. Langdon brought In the ship
Robert Dixon, from Itlo Janeiro this
morning, having been fifty-four days on
the voyage. The ship Is in ballast to D.
B. Dearborn. The captain reports fair
weather up to May 26. He was then
south of the Gulf stream and a heavy
westerly gale sprang up and lasted with
hurricane force for three hours.
The lower foretop gallant yard was
carried away, while the fore and mlztcn
upper topsails and main stuysull were
blown clear out of the bolt ropes.
The experience of the Robert Dixon
was unfortunate In many ways. The
vessel sailed from this port for Rio Ja
neiro Sept. 7, In command of Capt. Cush
in?. with a cargo of general merchan
dise. She arrived at the port named on
Nov. 73, but owing to the troubled stato
of affairs she had much difficulty In un
loading her cargo.
She was compelled to remain In the
harbor about four months, and during
that time Capt, Cushlng was taken sick
with yellow fever. He was removed to
a hospital, where he died later. His
young wife, who was with him, re
turned home on the steamer Dclcomyn,
which arrived here April 21.
The cook's boy was alio taken sick
with yellow fever about the same time
as the captain, and he also died. Then,
Capt. Langdon'took command. No other
cases of sickness were reported after the
ship left Rto.
Tne Norwegian bark, C. Tobias, from
Padang, also got Into port this morning
In charge ot Capt. Flaystadt. She was
one hundred and fourteen days making
the voyage. It took Capt, Flaystadt
fourteen clays to round the Cape of Good
Hope so strong were the gales. The bark
Is consigned to Tobias & Co.
Quickest on Record Over the Louk
Course from Southampton.
The American Line Steamship Paris ar
rived at her dock at 8 oclock this morn
ing, after another fast trip from South
ampton. She came over the, long course
in six days, eleven hours and thirty
three minutes not quite two hours be
hind the fastest trip ever made. She,
however, travelled sixty-eight knots fur
ther this time. If this was deducted the
trip would have been the quickest on
record, as It was she made the fastest
trip over the long course.
The distance covered each day was
239, 604. WO, 600 knots. She left the Quay
May 26 at 2:13 P. M. and reached Sandy
Hook Lightship last night at 8:46. Tne
average speed on the trip was 20:01 knots
an hour.
On Memorial Day the vessel passed an
Iceberg In lat. 42, long, 49, fifteen miles
Purser Horace Stokes denied the state
ment that the Paris had crossed the bows
of the Majestic on the catsward trip.
He said the ships were never closer to
each other tnan half a mile, and that the
Majestic crossed the bows of the Paris a
mile ahead of her. It was no race at all,
he said. The Paris soon overhauled the
Majestic and passed out of sight.
The Paris brought over a large number
of passengers, among whom were W. II.
Eaton and Mrs. Elene B. Eaton, the well
known English vocalists; Mrs. William
Walter Phelps, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Hoop
er, Rev. C. C. Hall, M. R, Moyer, Dr.
T. G. Lyon and others.

Somebody Impersonated a Well
Known Lawyer at Pastor's.
And Mado an Alleged Speech Pare
trolling Vesta Tlllcy.
A more wretched attempt at Imperson
ating Abe Hummel than was made at
Tony Pastor's Theatre last night was
never seen before on the stage or oft.
There was a shower of big and little
floral tributes at the end of Vesta Tllley's
song about "Tha Man that Broke the
Brokers Down In Wall Street," and
from the midst of It, like a simmered
down rainbow ot smiles, emerged a little
iran with a little red box under one arm
and a lot of orifice beneath his cuddling
mustache. Before him stood Miss Tlllcy,
genuine tears dlmmlrg her ces and big
sobs fluttering up and down In her
The little man had a epeech with him
not In the little red box, but In his
shining brain box, no part of which was
concealed from view by hair. Ills name
did not appear on the programme, but
some people sold he was Abe Hummel.
They didn't say whether he was the local
lawyer or "The Passing Show's" Abe
Hummel, so he started out to speak with
his Identity In a most wobblesome con
dition In the minds of most ot the audi
ence. He tried to be the regular and
real Abe Hummel, but oh, what a fright
ful failure he made of the role! He had
no conception of the character. The genu
ine Abe Is a flowing fount of eloquence,
but this base Imitation tied his sentences
into slip-knots, and was as Incoherent as
a handful of vlchy. He wasn't even pleas
ant In his mlscellanetty as Sam Ber
nard Is at the Imperial. He fell over his
adjectives too often, and may have sus
tained Internal Injuries for all anybody
In the audience knew.
He tried to tell Miss Tllley that he was
there to represent Tony Pastor, who Is
representing himself very successfully
out In Chicago, and on behalf of Tony to
present her with a slight evidence of the
high regard In which that " prince of
good fellows" held her as an artist;
also, that she had won the splendid ap
preciation of Pastor's patrons with a
clean repertoire. In which there was not
the slightest suggestion ot vulgarity.
But If you take these words and a few
more and shake them up In a hat and
toss them out one by one, they will as
sume the tangled condition In which the
audaclous'vaudevlller. who made hla de
but on Tony Pastors stage, presented
What was meant to be an Abe Hummel
speech. The attempt was awful. The
result was excruciating. The real Abe
Hummel should have been there to hear
and see It all. Maybe he wouldn't be
mad. It Is to be hoped that he will
take steps to find out who It was that
thus so ruthlessly misrepresented him.
Miss Tllley was taken by surprise.
Why shouldn't she be? She had heard
of the great Abe Hummel, and knew
that this couldn't be he. She took the
red box, though, and looked with Joy-lit
optics on the Jewelled medal It con
tained. She thanked Mr. Pastor and
the bogus Abe, and then, moving
towards the footlights, told the Amer
ican public how much she loved It, and
how she honed everybody present would
remember her after she was gone, as
she would remember them. Then she
smiled and went In behind the scenes.
There was the wildest kind of applause,
and Miss Tlllcy came forward again,
but the alleged Abe Hummel did not re
spond to the encore.
It was a great night for Miss Tllley.
She sails for England to-day, so a rous
ing farewell had been arranged for last
night. Tony Pastor's Theatre was so
crowded at 8 o'clock that Manager Harry
Sanderson had to Instruct the man In
the box-otneo not to sell any more ad
mission tlokets. The crowd was no
greater than the enthuslanm and both
were In honor of the popular little Eng
lish burlesque actress, whoic specialties

"And we dare not risk packing It," re
turned 'Miss- Annora, "because they
might take It Into their heads to examine
our boxes."
"How can we get It through?" mused
the elder sister.
"We must get It through," declared
the younger sister.
Presently Annora exclaimed: "I have
HI We will wea. It I No duty Is paid
on what one Is wearing."
"Yes, yes." said .Melissa, "but how
can we v. oar It? The white w. Ill get
soiled and the black torn In travelling,
Resides, If It looks unnatural, as It
would on our dresses and mantles, the
ofQaUW jvlll be sure to notice It."
''It would not look unnatural on our
bonnets," said Annora.
They set to work to decorate their
bonnets with the lace. They mingled
white and black, nchu and flounce, In the
most skilful manner, and though the
bonnets looked somewhat overdone, yet
they carried the lace, and It was proba
ble that the male eyes of the Custom
House officials would not notice anything
The Misses Wylle rejoiced In their clev
erness. They sat In the train on their
way to Franco with clear conscience
and light hearts. They had rien a de.
clarer nothing dutiable. In the compart
ment with them was only one other pa.
senger, a stout man, of good-humored
vllle sensation of the metropolis for
seven weeks.

herself with a mngnctlc grace nil

It only takes a dollar to euro a sick
baby. When pretty Vesta. Tlllcy heard
this yestctday, she put her hand In her
vest pocket, pulled out a bill, and said:
"I'll pay for five cures. I sail to-morrow,
and I want to do something to
bring me luck."
Miss Tllley believes In luck! and Is
willing to pay for It. Bhe didn't know
that thero were any people In America
too poor to buy medicines and food for
their sick children, until "The Evening
World" Fund wns opened. It may as
tonish her to be told that the free doc
tors made 1,478 visits last month, found
1,472 sick children, many of whom were
so very, very poor that the physicians
had to fill their own prescriptions.
The charming little singer does a great
deal In the way of ohnrlty when she Is
at home. Whenever she plays at Christ
mas time she distributes 1,000 tickets
among the poor children of the sur
rounding towns and gives each of them
a piping hot plum-pudding dinner.
There nre thousands of little ones In
England who bless Vesta Tllley's name
and look upon her as a fairy godmother.

Just for luck, and In brightening your

who Is v,orse iiff. Poverty Isn't as had
or as hard to endure us pain. Man only
needs a few clothes, a few pounds of
food and a roof that doesn't leak to bo

philosophy thrown In to be happy. Hut

homes along the rivers' edges and ask
It they Is unythlng they can do, the
lnevitnlile reply of the mother Is:
"Only get my child well."
With good henlth the possibilities of
man are nil but limitless. One of the
staff doctors hits the null squarely on
the head when he writes to the Chief
of Corps:
"There has never, I venture to say,
been a year In the history of the Fund
when the children needed looking after
ns they do this year. The reason Is
plain enough. Every one knows what
n hard Winter the past has been for the
poor. The men have been out of work.
Credit Is hard to get; the pawnbrokers
will lend nothing on furniture and
clothes, nnd the results show on the chil
dren, as a case I had uptown Saturday
will Illustrate. I found a child with fol-llcular-tonsllltls,
but very much sicker
than she would usually be. OnHnqulry
It rame out that owing to lack of work
tho children had been on short com
mons for some time, and the mother, tho
Katlent and tha other child were de
llltated and anaemia In consequence.
The results Is that the poor little ones
wero not In even their usual state
to resist sickness, and If we would save
the children now Is the time. And we
must work sharply to do It."
Just send nny change vou can spare
to the cashier of "The World" and the
Sick Babies' Fund will put It to hte best
possible use.
Any clothing, bedding or perambula
tors not needed may be sent to Mrs.
Boberts, 228 East Twenty-first street.

thnt the Professor Is happy to have her

But at that moment the official to
wl'om tte German had been speaking
came up to them and said. In very fair
English: "The ladles are fond of lace?'
Their hearts sank within them.
" Bather," they conceded.

" Mesdames, I admire your Ingenuity,
but such an amount of new lace cannot
be passed even on your bonnets. Two

uring the unlucky lace with his eye,

" En vulture, s'll vous plait!" was
The sum denuded by the officer added
to what they had paid In purchase would
have made the lace the dearest that ever
was bought. They tore off their bonnets,
pulled out Innumerable pins, set free the
