The Great Humorist Delights a Mul titude. The most distinguished arrival in Phoenix yesterday morning was Mr. Melville D. Landon whose alias Eli Perkins, has been a prominent figure on the lecture platform for a quarter of century, though the great humorist hardly looks more than twenty-five now. He would be mistaken for nothing else than a humorist. His solemnity is unbroken save now and then by drooping of his left eyelid which seems to be a sort of concession toward wink. Mr. Landon is something more than a humorist if one can be more than a humorist. Ha ia a vigorous writer, and speaker on prosaic subjects and is among the ablest regular contributors to the Political Economist, rlis views on a protective tariff are favorable and pronounced and are presented in manner as interesting as it is convin cing. Protection is deftly woven into his lecture of tonight "Fun and Fact in China and Japan." He was faced last night at the opera house by a large and appreciative audience in "Philosophy of Wit and Humor." Mr. Landon is perhaps more somber than he was ten years ago but is none the less attractive. The wisdom in his lecture is almost as funny as the wit and Doth are intensely funny. His distinctions between wit, humor and satire were amusing and interest ing and his delineation of character showed an intimate acquaintance with the motives of men. His local appl: cations were happy. Illustrating the manner in which life is frittered away he said while he was waiting at "Mary Cooper" (Maricopa) By the Associated Pr res. Tacoma, May 10.
