C.?Advt.-I COURT OF APPEALS A Number of Important Decisions Handed Down Yesterday. Tlie President la the Only Hope for Juincs Travera?Lower Courts Sustained. Late yesterday afternoon after the Court of Appeals had adjourned for the day, a number of opinions were filed in cases argued before the court several weeks ago. In the case of James L. Travers, convicted last March of the murder of Lena Gross near Brightwcod last November, the judg ment of the lower court was sustained. The principal contention of the condemned man was that his confession was wrung from him by threats and other Induce ments. The appellate court, however,found that the defendant had been given the benefit of every possible doubt, and that there were no errors committed by the trial judge of which he * could justly complain. Travers, a young cplored man, was sen tenced by Judge Cole to be hanged on the U)th of next month, and his only hope now is with the President. In the case cf Richard H. Fletcher against the Baltimore and Potomac Rail road Company, the judgment of the lower court was also sustained. Fletcher was employed by the company and was injured by tfe'.ng struck by a piece of timber thrown from a train. He sued the company, claim ing $10,000 damages, but in the court below Judge Bradley directed a verdict for the defendant. The judgment of the lower court was also affirmed in the case of the Walter T. Brad ley Coal, Lime and Cement Company against the Clark Brothers Lime and Ce ment Company, brought to recover a judg ment creditor's bill for $1,150. The defend ent company contended that their real es tate had been conveyed to the corporation, and that the property was, therefore, ex empt from attachment. In the court below Judge Cox decided otherwise, and in that opinion he was sustained by the appellate court. In the case of Alice Boswell against the District, In which she was awarded dam ages because of injuries sustained by her in falling over a projecting gas box in the sidewalk, the judgment below was affirm ed, holding that the District in not remov ing or having removed the obstruction thereby became responsible. In the controversy over the estate of the lat^ Allen McLane, in which a ruling of Judge Cox was questioned on the ground that his temporary assignment to the Probate Court was illegal without a revo cation of the regular assignment by the Court in General Term, the temporary as signment was held by the appellate court to have been legal, and the rulings of Judge Cox were affirmed. In the case of B. H. Warner against Thos. E. Young, to collect a note for $220, the judgment of tlie lower court in favor of Mr. Warner was affirmed. The judgment of the lower court in the ca.*e of the Eastern Trust and Banking Company of Maine against William G. Johnson and others was reversed. The question at issue was whether a trust re corded in Maine instead of here was prop erly executed. In the court below Judge Bradley held that it was not and that the right of possession had passed from the trustee to the purchasers. The Court of Appeals holds that while the trust had not been properly executed the right of possession did not pass from the trustee. MEDALS PRESENTED. Men Who Have Served Ten Yean as National RIttes.

The medals were in the shape of the Iron Cross, and were for a ten-year's service. Capt.

Grand Opera House.?Although the aver age temperature of the Orand Opera House is by actual measurement sixteen degrees lower than the street temperature, there was no Immediate danger there last night of a frost. Still, there was a good audience in attendance, and it enjoyed the perform ances, more especially that of "My Wife's Mother." The first play was "Jack White's Trial," a dramatic incident in one scene, presented by Mr. Shirley, Mr. Findlay.Miss Curry and Miss Johnson, and it was no ticeable, principally, in giving Mr. Findlay an opportunity to appear as a young man, and he did it very well. The real fun be gan with the next play. "My' Wires Mother," with Mr. Bond, Mr. Abbe, Mr. Findlay, Mr. W allace, Mr. Bu ke, Mrs. Findlay, Miss Curry. Miss James, Miss Johnson and Miss Blanche Walsh, in the cast. Naturally, the interest centered in Miss Walsh, who was making her first ap pearance in light comedy, as also her first appearance in the Bond Company. She as sumed the character of Sibylla, a mystery, and notwithstanding it seemed to be a stepping downward from the more digni fied characters in which she is known to Washington, her beauty, her ability and her adaptability easily made her at home in the new ioIo and established her fitness for the part. In other words; Miss \\ alsh lias tile comprehensive facility of acting, which enables her .to take any character more than well. She was received with a round of applause, and she maintained her self at riiat standard throughout. Mr. Bond, as the victim of his wife's mother, was very good, and Mr. Abbe, as the rather tough youngf man and husband of Sibylla, was at his very best, and had rather the best thing in the whole performance. Mrs Findlay, as the mother-in-law, gave a real ism to the part that was almost painful to some married people in the audience. Again tonight, and a cooler night is prom ised by the weather worthies. New National Theater.?The New Na tional Theater attracted a large audience last night with "An Awful Affair" as the play, and a company whose uniform abil ity throughout the cast makes it impos sible to pick out any one or two persons as being worthy of especial note. The play is conventional in its general struc ture, but. it is cleverly put together, none the less, and has plenty of genuine humor in its situations as well as tn its charac ters. The basic ic'ea of the play is one which has been employed by every success ful writer of comedy?the plunging of a man into an environment to which he is socially, intellectually or physically not adapted. This is one of the standard re sources of the humorist, both in literature and the drama, and it is capable of varia tions so infinite that there is no danger of its palling on the popular palate. "An Av.'ful Affair" displays literary refinement, despite the farcial tone of its title, and the company now employed at the New Na tional Theater presented it with a snap and sparkle that kept faithful admirers who had defied the heat amused from the beginning to the end of the performance. Charles Coote was greatly liked, and Mr. Bowser made a successful first appearance with this organization. The variety of choice which the field of fetan-dard comedy offers gives it a distinct advantage over the operatic entertainments which have hither to held the lion's share of the summer theater patronage. There are but few operas, and the audiences know them al most as well as the singers do?sometimes better?but the mine of comedy which the dramatic library holds has as yet been scarcely worked beyond the surface crop pings. One of the greatest pleasures con nected with a go.od production like "An Awful Affair" is that there are so many more where that came from. Kernan's I-yceum Theater.?Three shows in one is what the management of Ker nan's offers its patrons this week. In the theater a lively burlesque, entitled "The White Crook," holds the interest of the audience for nearly two hours, giving awav to the boxing carnival, which is still in progress. "The White Crook" is amus ing, and introduces several fine specialties. There Is the usual quota of pretty, shapely girls and clever comedians. In the boxing match Jack Daly and Billy Payne fought a draw. After this the performance was continued in the summer garden. The pro gram contained Lena Le Courier, Ward and Leslie, Emma Ito9e Lee. Ellie W illaru and Norma Brown, Josie Lore, Sanford and Lee, George Kerr and Pearl Bradbury. In the absence of Manager Kerrian, Assistant Manager Meyer Fisher looks after the in terests of the house, and his already wide popularitv serves him well. TorHprht the boxing bout will be between Torn Caldwell and Jocke Brown. Miss Alice Judson in opera.?Miss Alice Judson of this city made her debut with the Ilinrichs Opera Company in Baltimore last night, singing the part of Lola 111 Mascagni's "Cavalleria Rusticana. Tnat <*he made a favorable impression Is evi denced from the press notices. The Sun savs: "Miss Alice Judson made her first appearance here with the Hinrichs com panv as Lola, in "Cavalleria, and though it was but a small part she made many friends by her attractive manner and the pleasing quality of her voice.' The Ameri can considers that she "gave evidence of great promise. She has a good v?lce arid sines with taste and good judgment, while according to the Herald, "She is the pos sessor of a very pretty mezzo soprano voice, well trained, and considerable talent for the stage, showing great self-possession, unexpected in a first appearance. Her singing and acting were both quite charm ing, and she made a very pleasing impres sion." School Children's Concerts. ? Rehearsals for the concerts which occur Thursday and Friday evenings of this week at the Acad emy of Music, are going steadily on. The big choruses of school children, haif of whom are from the graded schools and the other half from the high schools, are rapid ly attaining a high state of proficiency under the able direction of Prof. llliam L Tomlins. and great things are expected of their efforts. The choruses will be as sisted bv Miss Maude Powell, violinist; the \polio Quartet and Mrs. Ernest Lent, ac companist. Prof. Tomlins, who is to lead the choruses, is one of the best-know*n directors of children in the country.

The slngrlng of the choruses, which he will have under his direction Thursday and Fri day evenings, is expected to be exception ally fine when the material is kept in mind, and with the assistants which have been secured, there should be no reason for a concert that is not to the highest standard.
