Up to this point the course of true love runs very smoothly, but beyond It complications commence. The Hon. Arthur has a cousin, five times removed. Alfred Partridge, remarkably like Arthur in form and features, who has unfortunately backed a bill for $1,500 odd, and the friend whom he has obliged not being able to settle up, a writ has been issued against Alfred for the amount. To escape Bervice Alfred also betakes him self to the country, and by a singular coincidence arrives at the same hostelry at which his relation is staying. The two cousins are never seen together; in deed the Hon. Arthur is not aware of the other's proximity, and everybody takes the one for the other. The son of a local livery stable keeper named Tom Rushton, whose passion for Peggy had been crossed by the arrival of the Hon. Arthur, finding his advances now rejected, vows vengeance against his rival, and ducks Alfred in the river in the belief that he is having his revenge upon the other. These and other inci dents of a like character render the scene at the Red Lion intensely funny. T'ae second act is equally good. Mr. Reeves-Smith has one of the strongest, companies on the road this sea son, including besides the members of the original English company, George Hol land and Miss Margaret Robinson. Robert B. Mantell will be the special attraction at the Bijou during the coming week, commencing with a matinee to-mor row at 2:30. He will be MR. MAN- seen in a repertoire of Shakesperian and classic TBLL'S EN- drama. Ever since Mr. Mantell's appearance in GAGEMBNT. this -country about twenty years ago, he has been ac knowledged to be one of the foremost ex ponents of romantic drama. He first ap peared in Lancaster, England, in '76, play ing the part of the sergeant in "Arrah na Pogue," for which he received five shil lings (nearly $1) per week. After which, as he says, he playedi everything—from "thinking parts," dead soldiers on the field of battle, "'My Lord, the carriage waits," etc., etc, good, hard work, which he never regretted. In 1878 he came to America, first playing with Modjesfta in "Camille"' and "East Lynne," returning to England with Mr. and Mrs. George Knight. His first appearance as leading man was with Miss WaSs, with whom he played "Romeo," "Othello," Paul, in "Paul and Virginia," "Claude Melnotte," etc. In 1881 he was engaged by John Stetson for leading business at Booth's theater. New York, where he played Jack Herne in "Romany Rye," also a season on the road. After a while Augustus Pitou launched him as a star in such plays as "Monbars," "Corsican Brothers," "Hamlet," "Othel lo," "Marble Heart," "Lady of Lyons," "Romeo and Juliet," "The Louisianian," "The Face in the Moonlight," etc. He was with Mr. Pitou for six years. Then he managed Himself for two years. Since ithen he has been und«r tine direc tion of M. W. Hanley, who has surround ed him with a company of more than usual excellence. The repertoire for the week will be as follows: Sunday and Saturday matinees, "Lady of Lyons"; Sunday and Saturday nights, "Richard III.'": Monda-v ajid Fri- day nights, "Hamlet"; Tuesday and Wednesday nights, "Othello"; Wednesday matinee, "Romeo and Juliet," and Thurs day night, "Richelieu." Mr. Mantell's work is too well known to need particular mention. "King Dodo," a new oomedy-opera, which, in the parlance of the turfite, has been "touted to the skies," will be first submitted for Minneapo "KlNG lis approval at the Met ropolitan next Thursday DODO." evening. The engage ment will extend until Saturday evening, with a Saturday mati nee. The new stage offering is credited to the bristling pens of Frank Pixley and Gustave Luders, the bright young men who gained the public's gratitude last season with their first contribution to America's state amusement, entitled "The Burgomaster." The scenes of the play are laid in no place in particular, but have been given a semi-tropical setting of a very elaborate description, and it is said that each of the three acts discloses many pictures of surpassing beauty. Particular stress is also laid ui>on the magnificent costume display, it being asserted that no les than 800 separate and distinct dresses of beau tiful design are shown during the perform ance. The lyrics, of which there are some twenty-five, nearly all posses that swinging, whistlesome characteristic so entrancing to lovers of music, and the dialogue is said to fairly bristle with witticisms of the most laugh-provoking quality. Conspicuous members of the big com pany include Raymond Hitchcock, who kept Chicago laughing all summer, Cheri dah Simpson, Gertrude QuiDlan, Miro De lomotta, Greta Risley, Elsa Ryan, Edward A. Clarke, Arthur Wooley and Charles W. Meyer. Joe "VV. Spears will present his new farce comedy triumvirate, the two Ameri can Macs and the dainty comedienne, Mazie Trumbull, at the "THE IRISH Bijou operarhouse, follow ing Robert Mantell. "The PAWN- Irish Pawnbrokers" is full of color, movement and | BROKERS." melody. As farce comedy stars, the two American Macs have been counted among the best and they have always been surrounded by a large and capable company. They will Introduce many specialties, both concerted and individual, almost every member of the company being a perform er of more or less prominence. The two ! Amerioan Macs will introduce their well known originalities. The very fact that they are so extensively imitated is in Itself an enviable indorsement of their fun-making propensities.

A good many years ago an actor out in San Francisco made an adaptation of one of the best of Bret Harte's stories, "M'liss," which is to be the attraction at the Bijou shortly. "The Little Minister," a beautiful heart filling etory in the original, which J. M. Bar rie, its author, has successfully transferred to the stage, will be presented at the Bijou this season.

Rork, under whose | personal direction the musical comedy, "The I Casino Girl," is touring the country, will j present an organization of sixty artists- with the entire New York and London production for the local introduction of this spectacle of merriment at the Metropolitan. Oue of the most artistic pieces of litho graph work ever exhibited in this city is I now on view in the foyer of the Metropoli tan. It is a reproduction of a famous oil painting of Mark Twain, the author of "Pudd'nhead Wilson," and is being used by Shipman Brothers to advertise the play. During the long run of "Barbara Frietchie" in New York, the audiences found many an opportunity to let loose their enthusiasm in the big stirring scenes in which the play abounds. When this great play is presented here at the Bijou In the near future, the management promises the same elaborate play. Several important productions, new to Min neapolis theater-goers have been given at the Metropolitan already this season, and a number of others will be seen during the cur rent season.

The Hoevel String quartet announces a se ries, of five ■chamber nrusdc concerts to be given in the First Unitarian church under the auspices of the Men's Club of the Unita rian society. The first program will be pre sented on Tuesday evening, Jan. 7, and the series will be continued on each alternate Tuesday. Mr. Hoevel'a name is familiar throughout the northwest as a solo violinist of high and genuine artistic ability; but he is not known, as he deserves to be, as the courageous and faithful pioneer in our city of chamber mu sic. He organized the first permanent string quartet here nearly ten years ago and gave a series of concerts in come of the finest pri vate residences of the city. Since then, with several changes in the personnel, but with the constant and generous support of Dr. Clarence Straohauer, the quartet has contin ued to give entire program* or assisting numbers nearly every year, while the regular practice ami rehearsals Saturday evenings at Dr. Strachauer's home have been a steady attraction and edification to a email circle of grateful admirers. The quartet has played publicly for the Ladies' Thursday Musk-ale, and In 1894 and 1896 gave two series of cham ber concerts in the university. The new symphony orchestra which Frank Danz, Jr., has organized will make its first bo*- to the public to-morrow afternoon in a program, that has been arranged to entertain the students and lovers of all classes of music. The organization has been carefully selected and well drilled. Mr. Danz promises that new people w\\\ be engaged as fast as the receipts will warrant. Negotiations have al ready been opened with some clever eastern soloists, who can be Induced to come here to remain permanently if Mr Danz can afford to make it an object for them.

Scott Woodworth and John Parsons Beach will give a recital in Conservatory hall, 41 Sixth street S, Wednesday evening, Nov. 20, at 8 o'clock. Mr. Woodworth will sing songs of A. yon Fielitz and Mr. Beach. The sale of reserved seats at the Metropolitan Music company begins Thursday, Nov. 11. Mrs. W Talter S.

Warren Andrews, formerly of Minne apolis, but now of New York, gave an organ recital in the Ohio Wesleyan School of Music, Deleware, Ohio, Tuesday evening. The number of noted foreign musicians who will visit the United States this year is to be as large as usual. Some of the In vaders are familiar figures, while others are unknown save by reputation. It is these unknown singers, pianists and violinists who are most interesting to the American public. The' group includes Jan Kubelik, Edouard Zeldenrust, William W. Bailey, Arthur Hoch man, Pablo Casals, Esther Fee, Electra Glf ford, Mrs. Webb-Gardiner, Estelle Llebling, Gregory Hast, H. Whitney Tew and Andrew Black. Possibly even more eminent in their pro fession are some of the virtuosi who have already made their reputations here and are returning this season. Ignace Jaderewski, Lilli Lehmann, Josef Hoffman, Jean Gerardy, Lillian Nordica, Harold Bauer, Plunket Greene, FrlU Kreisler, Charles Gregoro wltsch, Leonora Jackson, Charlotte Maconda, Fanny Zeisler and Lillian Blauvelt. Mme. Emma Nevada's tour will begin Nov. 26 in Boston. She will introduce three Eu ropean celebrities to the American public. One, Pablo Casals, is a vloloncella virtuoso of some note who has appeared in Paris at the Philharmonic and other concerts. Moreau is a pianist and composer of reputation in Paris, while the third, Maquarre, is a flute soloist. Heath Gregory, the young American basso, also will be with the organization Paderewskl will play in February in Car negie hall, New York. His visit was not ex pected and he comes principally for the pur pose of attending to the production of his opera "Manru" at the Metropolitan opera house, which will take place, if present plans are carried through, on Feb. 12, two days before his first recital. H. Whitney Tew ie now 31 years of age and for the past seven years he has lived' sung and studied in England.

Tew will be heard in Minneapolis before the season closes. Estelle Liebling is an American soprano, who has studied In Europe for seven years! She made her debut in Berlin last January and sang In Dresden three years with the Royal opera company. Esther Fee is a western girl who has won enviable success with her violin. She has studied in Paris for the last three years. Electra Giffori made her first appearance ir cpera in Holland. She is from Illinois and eang In a Chicago church choir before she went to Paris to study. Last winter she sang with the French opera company in New Orleans, she will be heard in the "Creation", in Minneapolis. Arthur Hoehman is a young Amerlcan-Rus- MUSIC sian pianist. He was born in St. Petersburg and came to this country with his parents when 8 years old. He is now 20 years of age and has just returned from ibis studies in Europe. Miss Anna Millar, the Chicago manager, who is handling several of the chief attrac tions of this season inciflentally to her man agement of the Paur symphony orchestra. has done telling work for that body and for the individual artists. The winners of the prizes for original mu sical compositions offered by Ignace Pado rewskl, the pianist and composer, have just been announced by the Judges. A fund of $10,000 was established some time ago by Mr. Paderewskl to provide prizes for com positions by American composers. The first competition took place this year. The prizes offered were $500 each for the best choral work, the best orchestral and the best cham | ber mu^ic -work. The conditions stipulated that the works should be unpublished, and that they should be submitted under assumed signatures, with closed envelops containing the real names of the composers, to be opened after the decisions were made. Sixty-eight compositions were sent in. The Judges were almost unanimous in their de cisions. The prize for orchestral comvosi- I tion was won by the symphony entitled I "Four Seasons," written by Henry K. Had ' ley, music professor of St. Paul's school at j Garden city; the prize for choral composi tion is awrded to "A Star Song," the work of Horatio W. Parker, professor of music in Yale University; that for chamber music was won lay Arthur Bird of Boston. The Judges were Wilhelm Gerieke, conductor of the Bos ton symphony orchestra; B. J. Lang, con ductor of the Cecilia Society of Boston; Wil liam F. Apthorp, musical editor of the Bog ton Transcript; H. E. Krehbiel, music critic THE APOLLO CLUB'S DIRECTOR. C. A. Grauinger, a comparatively recent addition to the city's musical forces. of the New York Tribune, and W. J. Hender son, music critic of the New York Times. The prize-winners are widely separated now so far as their fields of activity are con cerned, but by a coincidence they are all na tives of Massachusetts. Mr. Hadley was born in Somerville in 1871. His father was a mu sician and gave early care to his education, sending him to Boston, where he studied harmony with Stephen Emery, counterpoint with George W. Chadwick, violin wiWi Henry Heindl and Charles Alien. He afterward went to Vienna, where he studied composition with Eusebius Mandyczewski, archivist of the "Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde." In 1896 he was put in charge of the music in St. Paul' 3 Cathedral school in Garden City, Long Island, a position which he still hods. A ballet suite of his composition was performed at a con cert of the American symphony orchestra, Sam Franko, conductor, at Chiokering hall, in 1897, and a cantata, "In Music's Praise," at the last concert of the People's Choral Union in Carnegie hall in April, under Frank Bamrosch. Last January he gave a concert, consisting almost exclusively of music of hie own composition at the Waldorf-Astoria. The winner of the prize for the choral com position, Horatio W. Parker, is Battell pro fessor of the theory of music at Yale univer sity and the composer of the oratorio, "Hora Novlssima," and the Greek commemerative hymn which were performed at the bicenten nial exercises at New Haven. He is the most widely known and admired of American musicians at the present time, and is rapidly becoming as popular In England as he is in the United States. He is just now enjoying his first sabbatical year, but was called back from Munich to conduct his works in con nection with Yale's bicentenary. He sailed for Europe before the result of the competi tion had been made known by the trustees. He was born in Auburndale, Mass.. in Sept. 15, 1863, studied theory with Stephen Emery, composition with George W. Chadwick and pianoforte with J. Orth in Boston; then went to the Hochschule fur Muslk in Munich, where from 1882 to 1885 he was a pupil of Rheinberger and Abel. After his return and before his call to the Battell chair of music at Yale he was organist and musical director of several New York churches. Though a native American, and therefore qualified to enter the lists, Arthur Bird is a resident of Berlin, where he has spent nearly all of his professional life. He was born in Cambridge, Mass., on July 23, 1856. In 1875-1877 he studied in Berlin under Haupt, Loeschhorn and Rohde. On returning to America he became organist and teacher at Halifax, where he founded the first chorus of men's voices in Nova Scotia. In 1881 he went back to Berlin and studied composition and orchestration with H. Urban. In the summer of 1885 he was with Llazt in Wei mar, and in 1886 he made his last visit to America. He has composed in many forms, and New York, besides smaller pieces, has heard a symphony in A and "Carnival Piece" of his composition. It is understood that when Mr. Paderewski comes to America this season, arrangements will be made for a public performance of the prize compositions. Th« nature of the com petition may b« Judged from the fact that the prizes went to men whose standing in American music was long ago established. The value of the prizes and the importance of the competition called out the best ability in the country. At the recent Leeds festival the chief nov elty was a new cantata by Coleridge Taylor, the negro composer, who has gained much praise for his settings of Longfellow's "Hia watha." Again he has come to the American poet for his material, his libretto being based on "The Blind Girl of Castel Cuille," which Longfellow translated from the Prov encal of the barber poet, Jacques Jasmin. The work is criticized somewhat for the monoton ous character of the choruses, but the solos are said to be pleasing and the orchestration at times entrancing. It will probably be heard in this country before very long. Mr. Chadwick's cantata, "Judith," waa heard for the first time at the last Worcester festival and was highly commend&d, although the composor did startle some hearers who had been brought up on conventional oratorio by the be? 1 way In which he treated the theme. A mandolin and guitar club, under direction ,of H. P. Sutoriua. is being organized at the Johnson School of Music. It will be open to all mandolin, guitar and Tialia players la the elty.
