IN OTIS SKINNER'S PRODUCTION OF "FRANCESCA DI RIMINI," AT THE METROPOLITAN, WEEK OF SEPT. 30. Stuart Robson, realizing the trend of the public's desire for the plays that have been tried and found true, has made this season the most important ROBSON revival that has ever been given to Hronsou How- IN ard's "The Henrietta." Since the play's first pre "THE sentation, fourteen years ago, it is said that it has HENRIETTA." never been presented so elaborately as Mr. Rob son's present production. In point of players, elaborateness of scenic settings and ricaneoa of feminine costumes, Mr. Robson's presentation of "The Henrietta" ranks as the most important revival of the day. It treats of topics and people distinctively American; the stock brokers, th» Wall street panic, the suddenly made American millionaires, the frail basis upon which American aristocracy is built, the satire of Anglomania, all are shown in this drama, and are human, interest ing and earnest. Lovers of stage art will be delighted to laugh again at the genial creation of the harmless and hu morous "Bertie, the lamb. 1' Mr. Robson has surrounded himself with a company o? such unusual excellence that his or ganization might be called an all-star one. Mr. Robson himself is of the opin ion that this is the strongest cast that! has ever appeared ia "The Henrietta," MACYLN ARBUCKLB. as Nicholas Van Alstyne. Mr. Robson opens his present season in "The Henrietta" Monday night in St. Paul, where he arrives to-day from New York with his company. He brings his company and production to this city Thursday, when he begins an engagement of ihree nights and Saturday. An important event will be Otis Skin ner's brilliant revival of Boker's poetic tragedy "Francesc*. Da Rimini." The character of "Fran "FRANCESCA cesca Da Rimini" is such that only the DA most elaborate scenic adornments and RIMINI." painstaking attention to details will meet its exacting demands. That the manage ment is alive to this fact is evidenced by the judgment that has been displayed in the selection of the cast, the lavish cos tuming, and the scenic equipment that is promised. The array of talent assembled includes Mr. Skinner, Mr. Boucicault. Marcia Van Dresser, AVilllam Morris, and Gertrude Norman, a»d it is doubtful if a more excellent assemblage has been seen In any production, Mr. Skinner's engage ment at the Metropolitan is for the entire week beginning Monday, Sept. 30. With a company of nearly thirty capable artists and a carload of elaborate special scenery, Messrs. Burt and Nicolai, man agers of the charming "NIGHT pastoral play, "The Night Before Christma_s," feel BEFORE no hesitancy in assuring the theater-going public CHRISTMAS." that this, their latest production, will be found fully up to their standard. This fine at traction will play an engagement of one week at- the Bijou, following the engage ment of "A Common Sinner." The secret of the popularity of plays which picture the simplicity of country life is unquestionably due to the fact that we are all only children at heart, and none of us are so callous and worldly wise bm that we love to live over again those happy days of childhood amid the tranquil scenes of leafy lanes and breezy fields. It was with this object in view that "A Night Before Christmas" was written and produced. "A Common Sinner" as depicted by William (.Big Bill) De Vere and a com pany of exceptional strength will be the attraction at the Bi "A jou beginning with a matinee Sunday aft- COMMON ernoon at 2:30. It is a musical comedy in SINNER." three acts; the first laid in Kentucky, the second in New York and the last at the Sea Shore. The story of the piece is said to be suffi ciently lucid to prevent the performance frtom being rated as a vaudeville enter tainment interspersed with bright and witty dialogue; the theme is apparent at all times. For thirty years "Big Bill" Devere lead the life of an itinerant actor and minstrel in the west, and it can be safely stated that not a new town was started, or mining camp opened up, but what he was among the first to arrive and lend his good nature to the amuse ment of those serious miners and settlers. A contemporary of Eugene Field and other humorous writers, his poems to-day are treasured as the classical literature of the camps. Ten years ago Mr. De Vere became a full fledged actor, under the management of the late Charles H. Hoyt, who had been first to discover and prom inently utilize the humor of that big, Jolly oomtfdian in the "Hoyt's" creations DAISY KPm. ■ .. . . With "A Common Sinner," at the Bijou next week. land with what success has been fully demonstrated by his portrayal of the char acter of Goodfellow Gunning the "Shot Gun Editor," in Hoyt's "A Black Sheep." This season "Big Bill" comes to us in a new play called "A Common Sinner." The part of Colonel Culpepper-Sinner, which Mr. Devere is cast for. has been especially constructed to give him all the scope and opportunities of utilizing his fund of comedy, wit and humor. The suporting company Is said to be of the best. It includes Glayton Kennedy, who made such a decided hit here with Hoyt's "A Trip to Chinatown," last sea son in his very unique piano specialty, William Philbrick, also remembered as THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. one of the leading features in the same comedy. Mamie Taylor, Mattie Rooney, the very talented daughter of the late Pat Rooney; Daisy King, long identified with George Lederer as a leading feature in his many spectacular 1 productions, Jack Doyle, T. William Sturgeon, Sidney Crans, Rorothy Reed and others. Footliffht Flashes. The attraction at the Metropolitan for the week starting Sunday, Oct. 6, is to be Wil liam Collier and his company presenting Au gustus Thomas' successful comedy; "On the Quiet." The Klaw & Erlanger Opera company, headed by Jerome Sykes, with its special or chestra, under the direction of Slgnor A. Novellis, is booked for an early appearance at the Metropolitan in De Koven & Smith's "Foxy Quiller." Wilson Barrett's great historical drama, "The Sign of the Cross," will be seen at the Metropolitan for a week's run early in the season. "The Burgomaster," with its tuneful music, elaborate stage settings and pretty girls in dazzling costumes, is one of the early season bookings at the Metropolitan. "Across the Pacific," which met with dis tinct success on the occasion of its presenta tion here last season, is announced for an early appearance at the Bijou. Ward and Yokes, in their latest comedy hit, are announced to be seen at the Bijou in the near future. Black Patti and Black Patti's Troubadours, unquestionably the best and most entertaining colored organization uu the road, are includ ed in the list of early bookings at the Bijou. Rarely is there seen in stage work such a really enjoyable combination of comedy and humor and deep pathos as is shown in that delightfully quaint play of country life in central Indiana, "Sis Hopkins," which comes to the Bijou soon. Robert Mantell, the distinguished tragedian, will be seen here shortly in Shaksperian and modern roles. "The Irish Pawnbrokers." a musical extrav aganza that made considerable money in th« east last season, will bo seeu at the Bijou soon. Clyde Fitch's play, bearing the name of Whittler's famous poem, "Barbara Freitchie," is included in the list of early bookings at the Bijou. "M'llw," Bret Harte's beautiful story of the Sierra Nevada mountains, which was seen here at the Bijou last season, is announced for another visit. "McFadden's Flats," that uproariously funny comedy, which never fails to please, will be at the Bijou later in the season. SIBERIA'S WONDERFUL GROWTH. Leslie's Weekly. Siberia is growing with wonderful ra pidity. The Russian government is very kind to its emigrants. This summer 1 met a train in Siberia. It was taking fourth-class passengers a distance of 2,500 miles for $2.25, giving each person a sleep-' Ing berth, and feeding some of the poor er ones at the many feeding stations along the Siberian railroad. Over 600,000 emigrants have crossed the Urals into Si beria in five years. Siberia to-day looks just about as Dakota did twenty-five years ago. To give you an idea of the increase of traffic in Siberia, the following figures given me by Prince Khilkoff may be in teresting: "The West Siberian road (that is, the section of 2,000 miles from the Urals to Irkutsk) in 1896 carried 160, --000 passengers, 169,000 emigrants and 10, --500,000 puds of goods. (Pud is forty pounds). In 1898 it carried 379.000 pas- sengers, 195,000 emigrants and 30,000 puds of goods."
