noticeable, Eames giving also a very finished
rendering to tb. lovely phrases.
Mm. Lames was heard for the first time this
season aa Juliette, Melba np to thle time having
held through th. coneent of Mr. Abbey an
exclusive right to sing the part. Th. de
parture of the prima donna pro'iably
take off such an tmliargo. however, anil
Karnes's extremely satisfactory assumption of
the part was evidently enjoyed by the large
and lend) assembled. Her growth In dramatlo
and musical stature was clearly shown by de
cidedly greater Independence and free
dom of action, amt by a sympathetic em
bodiment of th. character that evidenced
deeper Insight than formerly. Tbe consequence
was an unusuallv convincing outline of th.
gentle heroine. Mme. Eames has arrived where
sh. can grasp and hold her delineation and ex.
plain her meaning unmistakably to her hearers.

The hero of lut night' new Irish play at th.
Fourteenth Street didn't ow. a c.nt ot rent;
mora than that, he wu a millionaire, acting u
a schoolmuter for Irish peuanta, that he might
win th. lore, not ot a bare-armed colleen, but
of a daughter ot th. haughty squirt) of th.
county. Th. author that bit so hard a blow at
th. precedents of Irish plays wa Aigustus
Pltou, his title wu "Hweet Innlecarro," and
his play was ln four acta. It wu timed In th.
war of 18 12, and In It mor. unhapplness was
caused by the cress gang that seised
fishermen for the Drlttth nary than by
hard-hearted landlords with a fondness
for a full measure ot rent and for
evictions. Now and tbsn ther. were signs of
cloee-fljteJ r.nt gathering, but no red-coated
villain mad. tb. demands, and what tenant
could be turned out o' doors for th. lock ot a
f.w shillings when the hero, tb. friend
of everybody, had a pocket f nU of money I Th
progress ot his lovemaklng and th. HI success
of th. landlord ln winning th. sam. woman,
wer. th. main Issues ot th. story. Then ther.
were a secondary pair of lovers and a drunken
fiddler, his shrewish wlf. and their twins a
tunmakers. and flsnerfolkto point the serious
ness of the Dress gang's operations. A few walls
from women whose wni or hnsbanda had been
pressed Into tb. navy wer tb. only attempt,
mad. to harrow listeners' feelings, these sor
rows were not permitted to be In evidence long
at a time, and In th. end tbe hero's pnrte had
not been so depleted by meeting overdue rent
but that be could ransom all th. fishermen and
rrtnrn them to their firesides.
The heroic Irishman with this novel equip
ment was Chauncey Olrntt. and the demands
on Mm u an actor left mm plenty of chafjees to
ting. Sing he did, new ballads of hie own com.
position, and In a vote, that could hardly be
Improved upon for the purpose. Every
ballad h. voiced wa met with a call
for more stanzas, and at tb. end of the
serund act. afir three usher had handed their
burdens of flowers over the footlights, a speech
from the actor wu demanded. At th. end of
th. third act Mr. Plton had his Inning, and told
othla planning for a departure from the nsual
etyl. of Irish play. Then after the play wuover
the andlence waited to call Mr. Olcottout again
and to listen to his words ot thanks. Capable
assistants to Mr. Olcott were Lux. Martin, who
Is always an interesting sub-vtllaln; Georgia
Unsbee. and Paul Ollmore. New and pretty
scenery wu abundant, the second art's picture of
a wooded hillside being remarkably handsome.
A conspicuous Item of the piotoral aide wu a
huge St. Bernard dog. who strolled about or
played with tbe children, and who wu never In
any one's way and always perfectly at ease.

Tammany Hall's General Committee for 1807
will meet and organize to-night. It will prob
ably reelect Its officers and adopt resolutions
designed to make people forget thst It professed
Populist principles lut fall. Thomas F. Grady,
who has been drafting Tammany platforms and
resolutions, will step aside. It Is said, and his
place as Chairman of tb. Committee on Heso
lutlons will be Uken by Rollln M. Morgan, a
gold Democrat.
The address which will b. adopted at th
meeting to-night will not. It Is said, contain a
word about the so-called national Democratlo
Issnss. Its whole purpose will be to Impress on
the voters that only local Issues should control
tn the coming election, and by a comparison
of th. record of former administrations
with that of Mayor Strong, to endeavor
to show that th. former were mora economical,
and for that reason that Tammany Hall can
better be trusted with th. administration of
local affairs than any other political organiza
tion. Every argument that can be advanced to
secure a uulon of Democrat on one ticket In
tbe Greater New York election will be presented
tn the resolutions.
This Idea Is on which Is advanced by Woh
rtl Croker. and It has the backing of Hugh
MoLanghtln, the Brooklyn Democratlo leader,
who Is allied with Croker and Tammany ln tbe
endeavor to eecure a Democratlo vlotory at th.
poll. In n.zt November.
They propose that County Clerk ITenry D.
Purmy shall uk. on himself all the odium ot
perpetuating the socialists Idsu of the Chicago
platform by making them an Issue ta th
municipal contest. It wu fortblareuon.lt is
said, that the two big local Democratic leaders
counselled that their friends In the Legislature
stand by Senator Hill while Purroy's friends
cast their votes for Henry George.
The leaders are working under great difficul
ties, not the least of which Is the fact that less
than a month ago the old General Committee
adopted an appeal to th. voters which pre
tended to be a platform for 1897 and was
drawn by Senator Grady. It wu adopted at a
meeting held ln Tammany Hall on Dec 30.
Here are same sample paragraphs from Iti
The Democratic- Republican Oeaeral Committee of
Tammany Hall at Ibis Its first meetlna sloe, tb
FresUttntlal ooatoat. aompl'mrnt Us faithful con
stituency for iu fearless T.vollon to the Democratlo
csute and renew, with ompbaei me aratsful ezprra
siouor Its obligation to the 133.000 voters In th.
metropolis who by their free ballots proclaimed
their loyalty to Democratlo principles In tn recent
campaign. We Bod la the vote then polled ami
the attending rlrenmstanoee rail 'assurances of
ertaln an.l oompl-to success In th. futur for every
political movement which alma at sev-urlng for the In
di.laualclllsen all his rights aa the sovereign polltl.
cat unit, tn oppootlnn to the virions do-trlue now so
balillr aaserted that governmental control may safely
be releeeted to th. Interests of wealth or Influence
ereate-l by legislative sanction or favor.
W know well that tn a local eleotlon the same
principles are to be emended for as in a larger n-td
of political action. W. ream, thai lh. next political
contest will tnvolv. local interests of our county and
soon territory a haa been decreed top a Greater
ew York.
In these same resolutions wu announced the
policy of atucka on "trusts and combinations
of capital." which has already been begnn by
Tammany s representatives In the Legislature,
with the contentandactlvesupportof Sheehan.
It will be seen that In the Grady platform,
adopted on Dec. 30 last. It was announce.) that
In the coming local election the aame principles
that were battled far last November will be con.
tended for. The Morgan platform. It wu uld,
will controvert this proposition, the voter may
take their choice, and there will be somsthlng
to snlt everybody.
The contests In the Second, Twenty-third and
Thirty-third Assembly districts It wu said
yesterday, will be referred to tbe new Ezecntlve
Committee, which will refer them to a sub
committee an contests.
The new Committee on Organization will
meet to organize next Friday night. There hu
been Ulk of Lonis F. Haffen succeeding County
Clerk Purroy as Chairman. It wu said lat
night that It Is more likely that Daniel F. Mc
Mahonof tn. Seventeenth district will get the
place.
Mr. Purroy's new organization will begin tbe
work of extension beyond th limits of the
Twenty-thlrd and Twenty-fourth wards to- i
night. Th. Oeneril Committee for tne

WAsnt.taTON, Jan. S3. It hu been reported
In Washington to-day that Senator Sherman la
seriously considering the advisability ot with
drawing bis acceptance of the State portfolio In
tbe MoKlnley Cabinet and remain In tbe Sen
ate. It Is said that tbe Senator la convinced
that he made a mlsuke ln opening np the old
quarrel among tbe Onto Republicans by creat
ing a vacancy In the Senate, and that he real
izes, moreover, bis lack of qualifications for the
ofilco which he bas accepted. The source of
this report, however, ts found In the camp of
tbe Foraker men in Wuhlngton, and
It Is therefore looked upon with some
suspicion by Republicans generally. There
seems to be no doubt that th.
Faraker Republicans In Ghlo are determined to
make things lively for the Uannaltes. and the
contest tor the vacant Hrnatorshlp will array
tb. factions against each other. There Is said
M be a literary bureau of Forakerltes In Wann
ing ton engaged In spreading Informatlou to th.
effect that Gov. Hushnell will not appoint Hanna
6enatnr. that Mr. hberman will therefore re
consider his acceptance of the Stat, portfolio,
and that many other Important things will soon
happen In Ohio politic. Mr. .Sherman said this
evening that there le no truth In the report that
h. contemplates withdrawing his acceptance of
th. Hiate portfolio. He haa accepted the office,
he says, and. If be lives until tb. 4th of March,

The Hoard of Colic. Magistrates at their
meeting ln the Yorkvllle Court lastevenlng bad
a spirited controversy ln which all present, with
the exception of Magistrate Mott, took part. It
arose over the two letters sent ont on Dec. 21 by
Secretary Tebbctts, one to the various police
court clerks and one to Chief Conlln. IntheOrst
lcttsr Mr. Tebbctts said that hs had been
directed by the Chairman of the committee
on th. annnal report tn request the clerks to
particular!!, tn their records whether prisoners
wer. arrested for Intoxication, disorderly con
duct, or both together, and also to state. In th.
caseot prisoners born In the United States,
where their parents were born, Mr, Tebbetts'
Utter to the Chief laid that the board desired to
know the nativity of the parents ot prisoners,
and had by resolution directed him to request
that th. Chief require police officers to Include
this Information In their records.
Th. first letter was accordlug to fact, although
the board t.sd nuver acted on the suggestions it
contained. The second letter was not accord.
Ins to fact. In that while It had come out ot th.
suggestion of Mr. Kudllch to the Secretary, th.
board had not authorlxed It, and had. In fact.
never passed such a resolution. As to Just
who was responsible for th. wording ot th.
letter, there wu a controversy, but that bad
littls to do with the dlsousston of the evening.
Mr. Ilrann offered an emphatic resolution or
derlng the Secretary to cancel both letters as
absolutely unauthorized. 'Mr. Kudllch aame to
the Secretary's support and said thai be wished
to take any blame there might be. since be was
responsible for the letters. He was sorry, and
wanted to apologize If he had offended the dig
nltyoftbe board, but he vigorously protested
that hit Idea was proper and beneficial.
Ills Idea was to obtain fairness for lbs United
States In the matter of persons arrested. He
knew that all over the United States the sams
thing was going on that went nn here; prisoners
said that they were born In th. United States
and so were charged to this country In the
records ot crime when, as a matter or fact,
while they were born here, they cam or foreign
pnrnti ani could not fairly be taken as exam
tiles ot tbe characteristics ot the natlva popu
lation. Mr. Hrann ojectrd thst to distinguish between
native and adopted citizens was contrary to the
spirit ot the country. Tbe Idea was bad, and
would work barm, he said. Was it not baa
enough for parents to knownttbearrrstuf their
children, without having It said that the cul
prit's father or mother was born tn Ireland,
or ln Italy, or In Uermsny? There were too
many persons among those arrested now who
tt err anxious to say tbal they belonged to some
i.rialn natlocaltty-eometlmes with tbe Idea
of currying favor with a Judge. He recalled a
case where a prisoner before him had raid bo
was Irish, when It was as plain aa the nose on
his fare that he wasn't. The whole scheme was
In tbe line of n A. 1. A. conception, lie said, the
A. I'. A.'s wanting something to work on.
Mr. Kudllch read letten from Carroll It.
right and from I'rof. Smith or the political
science department or Columbia University,
setting forth the necessity of getting the natlvtlv
of parents, especially In criminal records, tor
the compilation of statistics, at Is done ln taking
the Federal census.
Mr. lirann objected that while ln a Federal
census persons would not mind giving psrticn.
lars of their parentage, tbe conditions would be
different In a police court, and there would
there be Incentive to misrepresentation. 'Ibe
whole Idea, be said, was "a new fad. come In
with the civil eervke." and had never been
heard of under the old board.
Amid a euial.sled whirlpool nf motions, suh.
rtttute". resolutions, and ilullons or them all.
Magistrates Slmms and Deuel gnve a hand tu
Mr, Ilrann, Mr. Wentworth tried actively
and Mr. Crane pastvely to fix everything
up for Kudllch without trouble for Tebbetts.
and l'resldent Flammer strote to d'vida the
question Into one or Indorsing the action
ot in. Chairman of the board's committee
as to Ibe letter to the court clerks, and one to
rectify the error that had been committed In
sending nut the Conlln letter. In th. end the
Hrann resolutions were rejected, and nobody
i seemed to care to go on with tb matter any
longer.

does more to pay oft the mortgages than any of
the fancy Investments of which the Western
farmer has been so proud. Tbe last few years
hare been bard ones for the dweller on the
prairie claim. II has foand tbe price of grain
low and the yield light- He has experimented,
and found theend vexatious. Now he is under
taking something that Is more certain, though
slower. Tho creamery Is being brought to tho
front and promises to be the coming favorite ln
all tne prairie regions v her tbe possibilities of
dlierslfltd farming are understood.
In Kansas scores of creameries ars being built
each month. Less than ten years aro tbs ilrst
creamery was ctabllshrd In this county, and It
was one of the Ilrst In the Stat. Now there are
fifteen In this county, and of the -',000 families
In tbe farming communities 1,700 take tu the
factory each momtng a greater or lers supply
of milk. They gst from $5 to J100 each month
for milk the year round. Tbe average Is about
$10. and the total Is nearly $300,000 annually.
That means much tn the settlers, who are thus
enabled tn ha, e a stead) Income notdependuut
on tbe rainfall or the winds.
The prairie women are responsible for the
great advance made In this direction. Tbey
were tbe first to see lb prottt to be gained from
the little things on the claim. The bens are
said to have saved Nebraska and the humble
cow ia doing aa mucn for Kansas. Said one
woman tbe other day I
"I hate paid almost all ot the mortgage on
our place bv the milk money, and my ho'band
did not know for a long while the source of my
Income. While our neighbors who have de
pended on strulghl farming have suffered, and
some of them have lost their places, we have
saved money and are all right." She was one
of the frontier women who have done so much
to build up the West.
The creamery is reaching out to the farthest
places of tb West for a market, and all the
mining camps are now depending ou the plains
for butter and cbee. The Mexican trail. Is
also coming to the front because ot tbe Increase
of the refrigeration cars, which make it possible
tu take tbe product lo IU destination In good
condition.
The cattle that wrre-once supposed to rustl.
for themselves through the winter are now
carefully shedded and their Increase, is sared
with solicitude, for tbe farmers are seeing that
herein lies tha way tn better times. 'Iwenty
cars of corn take about Ihe same money lathe
market a one car of butter. The latter pays
lltll. more freight than on or the car of corn.
Here tho farmer finds the solution or the freight
rates, and If he can work along this Una peopln
will sen and hear lea of tb dla.atlsfacilon that
has become common tn many sections, 'lho
West Is all right If tbe right way to ase It Is
found. The numble cow Is pointtna out oue

Friends advised him to go home and summon a

not summon a doctor. Tbe following morning
he found that he was unable to get out ot
bed. Then he asked that Dr. Eugene Fuller,
the family physician, be summoned. Dr. Fuller
found that his patient was very weak from con
tlnued coughing, and that he had great diffi
culty In breathing. On Saturday afternoon Dr.
Walter Delatleld was called In consultation
and a carefully worded menage was sent to
Mrs. Held, who la spending tbe winter at (Jenoa,

and became an ardent lleptibllrao. Wheu the

and sered for a sLort time. '1 hen he refnllsted
ln an Ohio regiment, ln which he served until
the close of the war. While acting as quarter

tent to Andervonvllle. Within a few months
aftr his capture ho managed to escape and
reacil the Union lines.
At the close of tbe war he found employment
In the office or the Chicago JImra. He was next
a compositor on tho New York 'Junes, then

His work for the rilato Committee uas very
valuable. There was not a campaign plan made
