ALEXANDRIA, Va.. April 11. 1905.
The omce of corporation attorney for
Alexandria. which will be relinquished by
Mr. Gardner L. Boothe at the end of his
present term. will not go begging if there
is' any indieation in the number of names
mentioned in connection with the candi
dgcy. The succeeding term does not begin
util the first of next year. but the demo
egatic primary. which in this city is some
times equival.at to an election, will be held
at a date this summer not yet determined

tire catthiate,a Mr. Paul B. Hultish. who r'
a repuhlican. all the attorneys who are
spoken of or the position are democrats.

flie c,.nt"st It is asserted the d,m.cratic
nulne will have far from the usual walk
over, though the election of a repnblican
candidate to this office is not considered
probable. Mr. Esugene B. Taylor. whose
name has been mentioned, is understood
to be unwilling to make a tight for the
nomination. Mr. Robinson Moncure. who
has been referred to in this connection,
states that he will not be a candidat. The
other two attorneys prominently spoken of
for the position are Messrs. J. Randall
Caton and Robley D. Brumback. It is said
that the tight. so far as the democratic pri
mary is concerned. will probably be nar
rowed down to Mr. Caton and Mr. Brum

practical purposes and her portions of dia

rounded. Some of the members of the com
pany are exceptionally clever, although
there is little risk of feminine rivalry. The
burden of the entertainment rests on the
shoulders of Fred Leslie, jr, Fred Wright,
Jr., and James Blakeley: The- ebmc inter
est is sustained by the efforts of this trio
in all the scenes in which they appear, and
the great saving hMarlous climax of the
play occurs when they sing a song about
the simple life. In whieh hley revert to the
pastimes of childhood. The audlence rose
to a pitch of enthusiasm that would not
permit the play to go on until the come
dians had offered convincing proof by
change of make-up that no further encores
were available.
The substantial attraction of "The School
Girl" is the music, through which 'sugges
tions of the "Florodora" sextette are con
stantly floating with agreeable reminis
cence. Pretty chorus girls contribute
smiles in blossoming abundance, and the
costuming Is picturesque.
"The School Girl" conveys no new impres
sions. It is of a familiar and popular
type, modest in its artistic pretensions and
occasionally irresistible in its foolery.
Columbia Theater.
The Primrose Minstrels began a week's
engagement at the Columbia Theater last
night under extremely auspicious circum
stances. The first performance of the
famous minstrels was the occasion of a
benefit to Almas Temple Patrol, and the
red-fezzed nobles of the Mystic Shrine and
their friends filled the playhouse to its ut
most capacity. The boxes as well as every
seat In the house were occupied and there
were rows of interested spectators who
stood throughout the performance.
Old-time and up-to-date minstrelsy,
songs, comic and otherwise; plantation
melodies, classical compositions, Jokes,
jests and sketches of folly and frivolity
were a few of the things that went to make
up the Primrose program last night. -And
here and there throughout the evening
were songs and jests interpolated for the
benefit of the nobles present. - One-of -these
was the song, "In the. Good Old Mystic
Shrine," sung to the air of "In' the Good
Old Summer Time."
One of the best features of the program
was the Hungarian Boys' Band, under the
leadership of Niklas Schilzonyi, who were
heard in a number of pleasing selections.
George Primrose was seen in several of his
dAnces, including "Eva"ye," "Lady Moon,"
"Essence of Old Virginia" and the "Silver
Shower Clog." The entertainment closed
with a series. of scenic panoramic effects
with allegoricaf features. - -
Lafayette Opera House.
"The Princess Chic," which began its an
nual engagement at the Lafayette Theater
last evening, bears up quite well under the
test of constant performance to which it
has been subject during several consecutive
seasons. Of course, this comic opera of
Kirke La Shelle and Julian Edwards is not
so old as "Erminie" or "Wang," but even
ir it the marks of age are apparent. The
producers have not given it an opportunity
to rest and be 'revived,' as, has'been the
case with the other two pieces, but perhaps
the future holds this good fortune in store
for "The Princess,' and after, the rest andi
recovery from the constant glare of the
calcium it will appear brighter and fresher.
However, as an entertainment device the
piece served its purpose, as was evidenced
by the applause of the audience. The cast
presenting the musical- play last night com
pares favorably with the companies pro
ducing it for several seasons pasts Sophie
Brandt plays the title role in an accept
able manner and sings. well, besides.;pre

Gus Vaughan ,ae lae Duke -f "B}rgundy

and quality.
Polite vaudeville, as defined at Chase's
this week, combtnes the advantages of the
circus with those of the theater. The man
agers who scour the country for novelties
for the sawdust ring are fast -being put to
serious straights to supply their patrons
with new and Ntartling methods of defying
the laws of gravitation, which, with' the
old-fashioned zoological colection, seems
to be about what the circus stands for
nowadays. Managers of what it was
pleasant to call tlIe "continuous" ten years
ago, but which now parades under the,
name of "polite vaudeville," have invaded
the field of the hippodrome and have taken
away from the circus Its nmcut daring per

practice and study. Aside from these two
acts the bill Is of the usual kind, including

Adventures and sensational scenes make
up the plot of the new melodrama, "After
Midnight," the attractien this week at the
Academy. The principal character of the
play is a young man, country bred and
kind hearted, ever willing to lend a help
tag hand. One feature Is the school for
crooks, where the young boy is taught
crime. A kidnapping piot arises over a
fortune belonging to a child of the heroine.
