It Is ! tho oxcoptlonnl manager nowadays who does j Hot "conduct his afTalrs as equitably as tho average that obtains In any othor lino of pur- ichaso and salo. Hut his pursuit Is more pre carious. The risks of loss are In a heavy ra tio to tho chances of gain, oven though he bo hrowd, careful and judicious. Fortunes ao- cumulated In the dramatic Hold are few. and usually by nctors. not managers, and ecn I. with the most famous of the actors material , , fortune Is uncertain. Kdwln llooth was a ' i bankrupt at tho zenith of his fume, and ills t tours had beconio unprofitable. Then the ' tide turned, und within live yoats he made so I much money that when he died his estate was t i worth over 5UO.oOO. Tho managor rises and foils with oven sreator celerity than tho actor. ' A theatrical manacor. now prosperous, was If! encountered as he alighted at a meal station i on a transcontinental railway. "I tako my W xneals In my privato car." ho said, "and I am getting a lot ot pleasure by tho sight of a place K- Where I can cat but don't want to. Pccauso I E ouco wanted to and couldn't I am making 'f tho trip now In a car exclusive to myself and I attendants. I do it to gratify a wlilm. Slx- teen years ago I was out here in this country i ft With a losing company. We cot Into a cer- g tain town just in time to clvo an evening per k1 formanco. and v. ere to resume our journoy , next mornlnc. Tho receipts were small, and p' I divided them umonc the actors, to they f would be able to settlo for lodgings and break- I- fasts, but In buying threo clrars for a quarter ' I discovered that It broke Into tho only dollar K left In my pockot.

Then I bethought myself of a free f Bass which had been Chen to mo.as manager, S' and on which I was entitled to ride to and fro at my pleasure. It didn't Include a berth in H a sleeper, but with It I eould spond tho night It In a cur seat. I dozed and triod to draw con- E solution from my three clears till about 4 i p o'clock in the morning. Then I changed to a .It train going back. It stopped at thlsBamo fit meal station for breakfast. I was ravenously . k hungry ..The breakfast smelled good and looked ip good, but its prioe was 70 cents, or exactly all !K' I had. I darod not leave myself without a cent S; for tho smallest incidentals durlnc tho day. K. There was no lunoh counter at which I could p buy a snack. Not even a cup of colfee was on fc . sale separate from the meal. I was ashamed to ask that an exception b" made in my case. j Co I hud to take my appetite back into the car, without so muoh as a olear left for solace, and wait till I reached the town to buy a '.'U-oent 1 broakfast at a cheap restaurant. That Is why I am enjoyinc my tiin over the samo line In a ' hotel car all to myself, and tako joy In smlllnc v disdainfully at this particular meal station." c " ! The war between the United States and i k Brain has overthrown tho comlo Irish Ber- i geant in at least one war drama. Aside from i the shift to things tropical In the scenery and '. to sunburnt complexions for the villains, this 1 is the most radical novelty that the contest ! has led to on the staco. "lied.

It has ever been the buInessof tho !B . Irish tierceant to lie usoful In some serious In- f, rldent. His saucebox substltuto succeeds to his responsibility. The barn has a platform f like a hayloft, and from this it is the plan of tne prisoners to lasso their captors.

Without exaggeration It may be galil that tho opera was pcrfoctly performed. Not a point that ought to havo been made was omitted, and Indeed thore would have been somethlnc Uko a superfluity of by play wero It not that tho plot of "Tho Barber " Is such that It can absorb tho liveliest, even tho most violent action and only gain In Its farcical humor. Signor Manolnolll Is n most sympathetic and ablo oonductor. Under his guidance not n mark of ex- j presslon was passed by without Its due weight, while at the samo tlmo tho actors, who woro nil perfect In tholr roles, had ample opportunity to carry on thelrlaughnblo an tlos without being haiasscd by on unreasonable wloldor ot tho bilton. , I Mmo.

Kxtremo cultivation and puro rellned art Is quickly recognized and keenly appreciated. It Is gratifying also to note thut coloratvr singers are always more , captivating to tho great publlo than those of any other school.

Itlval Unions Charge Encli Other with Vari ous Offences Against Unionism, The lonc-standlne jealousy betwoen the Musical Mutual Protective Association and the Manhattan Musical Union has again broken out Into open hostility. For a long tlmo the two organization have paid more attention to fighting each othor than they havo to fighting unorganized musicians. Each says It Is the only simon-pure article in the shape of la union. The Protective Association has Its headquarters at Sixtieth street and Third avenuo and Its membership comprises mom bers of some ot the best bands In the city. Their rivals' headquarters are in Fourth street, near the Bowery, and the uptown union is sometimes rather contemptuous In refer ences to It. No one Is allowed to belong to both organizations, and this Is what caused the trouble. ltobert Mullen Is the Secretary ot the Man hattan Union, and recently he apolled for ad mission Into the uptown organization. His OBtenslblo reason was that he desired to amalgamate the two bodies in order that thoy might tight non-unlcn bands to better advan tage. His action started a row. Mullen's enemies dcolared that he wanted to bo In both unions so that he could havo both organizations at his back in his effort to se cure from Tammany Hall contracts to play during the summer on oce of the recreation i piers. No action has vet been taken by either ' unlou. but the downtown members are doing a good deal of talking. They say that even If the uptown fellows take in Mullen the rest ot them will stand no ohancs to get In because the examination demanded will bo too high for aiivCono save a Paderewskl. IAnothor charge made by the downtown crowd Is that the Protective Association mom- I bers follow other occupations for a living. Tho case of Prosident Bremer is elted. He Is said to get $2,000 a year from music and $3,000 a I year from a political position. Jn answor to this Jacob Beck, ex-Seoretary of the National League of Musicians, with whloh the Protec tive Association is affiliated, wrote an open letter to the rival body charging the same of fence. Among their members he cites a hotel keeper, a printer, a reel estate oporator and a Shotographor. Beck, who was a membor of eck's Band of Philadelphia, which consisted of a father and seven sons, died suddenly since Issuing the letter. Tho Manhattan Union afllliates with the Federation ot Labor.

Washington. Nov. 30. Major-Gen. M. 0. Butler, a member of the Cuban Evacuation Commission, who has been In Washington for several days In consultation with tho Presi dent, tells a somowhat startling talo about the distress and starvation existing at present in the city of Havana, Slnco hostilities ceased, he sivys, tho people In the United States liars not hoard so often or so muoh In detail ot tho misery prevailing amoug tho Cuban families, And this may nocount In a measure for tho lack of concerted and etfectlvo notion for tholr re lief. Gen. Butlor has told the whole Pitiful talo to the Fresldont and he has promised to employ all tho resources ot tho Qovornmcnt to relievo it. bomo steps have already been taken. One supply ship, tho Batten, haa just ' dlsohargod half a million rations, constituting half of Its cargo of rollof supplies, for distribu tion among the sufferers In the neighborhood , of Havana, and Is now en routo to Cienfucgos i with tho balance. Th Govornmont also has roohartcrcd tho supply ship Gonial, with the intention ot loading a million and a half of rations for prompt despatoh to Cuba from Now York, but according to Gen. Butler's state ments rod tapo must bo quickly out or tho sup , plies will orrlvo too lato to savo tho starving ' liooplo of Havana. Private charity alono can savo the urgont cases now, acoordlnc to Gen. Butlor. "If tho Evacuation Commissioners had had $10,000 or 115.000 a short time ago." he said to-day, "they could havo relieved a great deal of hopeless suffering Immediately about Ha vana, nnd $5,0u0 would go along way even now. The Commissioners are constantly ap pealed to for relief, which thoy ate powerless to oxtend. Tho Spaniards have dono some thing to relieve the distress. They havo dis tributed certain supplies, consisting Inrcoly cf bason. But tills amounts to little more than giving n stone whore bread Is asked. Months cf privation hare reduced most of the surviving sutTerers to such a condition that thelr systoms afo powerloss to assimilate such food. What they need Is condensed milk and easily digested food of that character. Vuoh as Is supplied for invalids. To mako the tellet successful, the quality of tho food supplied Is of the first Importance, but hardly less Impor tant Is the manner of Its distribution. If It Is turned ovor to third parties for wholesale dis tribution, little of it will reach tho proper des tination. Thoso who furnish It must see that It Is taken from door to door and given to tho needy on the snot. The most pitirui cases." said uon. minor, "are presented by those people ot culture and rellnement who did not know want until the desolation caused In the country districts by tho I Spanish polloy extended to the city ot Havana people who are too proud to beg, who can not afford to buy. They are literally starving to'death In their homes. It is estimated that there aro at least 3,000 of these. They are. ot course, entirely distinct from thoso of the poor er classen, who wander disconsolate through the streets. As an example I may clto tho oass of one family of iistlnotlon In Havana. The head of the family lies helpless wlthjaralysts on hs bed. HI wlto. a lady ot tho highest culture, came to me in despair. A hundred I dollars would have been a godsend to hor. It . would have furnished her household with sup plies for several months, and tided them ovor these bitter times, but tho commission had no funds." In Gen. Butler's opinion, the people of the United States do not understand theso condi tions. If thoy did. he is Buro they would take measures to relidvo thm Instantly. For his own part he has done much to furnish Infor mation whloh would lead to Instant measures to bring at least a part of this terrible silent suffering to an end. PAXJ ABSEXT nOiZAX'S FIXE.

I Xtjf XO FVX IOlt TUB DIKE COPS. Snowy Wenthor Turns Them Into Common l'ollcemrn for tho Time. Just at pretont tho work ot tho polico blcyolo squad is far from easy. No policeman who does hts whole duty at this season ot the year finds life a great pleasure but tho bloyclo po liceman notices the dlfforouco betweon sum mer nnd winter moro than the other members of tho department He loavos his wheol at tho station houso nnd starts out on foot. He has , the privilege of riding on cars whllo on post, but In tho last tow days oven this has hardly mitigated the oold and tho wot and tho tedium ot his duty, Tho blcyclo poliooman's first duty is tho regulation of traffic, 'and with one-halt the street piled breast high with snow and tho other halt obstructed by stalled cars and wagons, it has been necessary fcr him to exor cise n wido discretion and much patience. The arrests mado by tho Bquad averago about fif teen a day. and the fact that thoy havo run be tween threo and bIx a duy In the last week 1 ehowx the extent to which the bicycle police I men havo shown clemency during tho storm ami Its nftormath of snow and slush. I Whether the men go out to their posts on their wheels or oa foot is decided ut tho station from tho reports of the roundsmen, borne times some posts will bo reported as fit for I riding when others uro not. Then somo of the i men ride and somo walk. Last winter there woro only ton days when all tho men covered their posts on foot. So far this winter there havo been half as many days when nil posts woro uullt for blcyolos. Whon tho men co out on foot they wenr lona trousers and locglngs, but they do not change their caps or blouses. Tho policemen tako advantage of their privi lege of riding on strce' cars over as much of their iKista as possible and frequently deliver their ordors to drivers from car platforms. Thero aro ninety men In the squad and forty posts ap covered. Each post Is about ten blocks long. Tho samo territory Is also cov orod by men from the prcolnct in whloh It lies, so that there is double police duty done on nil streets patrolled by blcyclo iiolicemen. This makes tho men's work easier and gives a bet ter Bervlce. The work of bicycle policemen does not conflno their attention to t radio nor tho preolnot man to house cases. Each Is on the lookout tor wrongdoing of all kinds. Durlnc the last wook men of. each branch have had Innumerable cases for consideration and decision not worth reporting nt their sta tions nnd the individuality of the blcyclo squad has been lost to a great extent for a fow davs. but tho long rows of bicycles waiting in the station ltuso aro well, oiled and on the first report oflthe roundsman that posts ore onoe more cleat the "blko cops" will be seen ugain in all thell glory.
