The above arc the theatrical attractions
for this week.
The performance of "Julius Csesar" by
the Jlelnmen company was the artistic
event of the week, and a great treat it wai
to the German population of Pittsburg. The
audiences, which wei-e large, were made up
almost entirely of Germans, although many
w hose acquaintance with German is more or
less limited, isited the Dnquesne with edu
cational view s as well as for mere entertain
ment, anti nero well pleased. I con
fers that I did not enjoy this
famous company's rendering of "Julius
Ca;sar," altlioujrii I could admire the hieh
artistic quality of the production, especially
in its pictorial aspect. The scenery was
cood. though not wonderfully so, but the
formation of staze tableaux and the man
agement of the sre was simply magnifi
cent. The mob was not a band of supers
earning by mere strenuous exertion the
night's pittance, but a mob with a cellective
force and swaed apparently by the mad
impulses of the moment as mobs arc The
dclnery or Marc Antony" oration did not
impress me as it has done when deliv
ered in Shakespeare's Knglish, but the mob
m hicli listened to it affected me more than
anv simulators of Home's great unwashed
have done betore You could seo the gradual
process of inflammation cunningly carried
out by Antony, and the climax of turbulence
was thrilling in the highest degree. To one
w ho docs not understand German, I think
the Jleinmgen Company's perloimance can
not be more than an interesting spectacle,
and while the .Meiningen system has doubt
less produced great artistic results, I
can't uretend to measure them.
For instance, to be candid, the whole ren
dering of "Julius Caisar" seemed to me to
lack dignitj and it may be that this ira-pres-ion
is really the aversion of the ear to
unintelligible sounds. But the Memmgen
compiny can safely oe credited with givin?
fchake-peaio a worthier frame and back
ground than any tnn eling American organi
zation has attempted. Een among com
petent critics of their own nationality
dnersity or opinion as to the ability of the
leading Meiningers exists, and under the
circumstances silence is the safest course.
It is a pleasant duty to announce that
3Iis Agnes Huntington will appear at the
Duquesue on Monday night, presenting
riauquette's tw o operas, "Captain Therese''
and "PaulJoues." The former is the latest
woikof this celebrated composer, and is
pronounced a composition of some merit. It
was written especially for Miss Huntington,
and is consequently particularly adapted to
the range of her A oice, and affords hermany
opportunities to display her talents both as
a vocalist and an actics. F.C-Eernaudand
Gilbert a' Becket are the joint authors of the
libretto. The principals of this company
are neailyall the fame as appeared here last
season in 'Taul Jones," including Uallen
Mo-tyn and Albeit James, the two very
cle er comedians; 3Ir. Eric Thome, the bari
tone; 31iis Jlillie JIarsdcn, soprano, and
Jliss Tinnie Caell, soubrette. The .new
additions are 3Ir. Clinton Elder, the
tenor of the company, and Miss
LJHe Chapny, a very delightful singer
and dancer who made ner nrsfr.appearance in
America with this company last fall. The
costumes used in "Captain Tberese" are
said to be very elaborate and a. tlstic and in
keeping with the action ot the play.w hich is
laid in Franco in the latter part of the six
teenth century- The scenery will bo de
lightlully realistic, the first act representing
the exterior of a chateau in autumn, with
the woods and trees stretching out into the
distance, clothed m a beautiful loliage of
gold and brown. The second act is a camp
becne at Vellars and presents a particularly
vi id pictures ot soldier's life. Miss Hunt
ington, ho is very popular here, is said to
be singing this jear In much better voice
than eer before. Miss Huntington will
wear some very handsome costumes in
"Captain Theree." "raul Jones" w ill be
given on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
nights, and at the Saturday matinee.
"Mr. Potter of Texas" w ill be presented
by Frank Vi". Sanger's company from the
Bioadway Theater, ew York, at the Bijou
Theater this week. This will be the first
production hero of "Mr. Potter" in its dra
matic form, though the character of the
Texan drawn by Mr. Guntef in his narrative
oi that gentleman's adventures is known to
many readers. In "Mr. Potter of Texas,"
however, Mr. Gunter offers a well drawn
character as a central figure of his story,
and the contrasts arising from the rough
manner of -Jr. Palter and the culmation
and refinement of the English aristocrats
ith whom his daughter i traveling w hen
he meets her in London is said to afford
humorous situations. "Mr. Potter of Texas"
is not a dramatization ot Mr. Gunter's novel
of that name, for the book was draw n from
the plaj, which enjoys, perhapn, the div
tinction of being the only play novelized in
this country. The action of the drama
cloely 'ollows that outlined in Mr. Gunter'd
noei. The action begins in Venice and ends
in Uologne, andisaid tobeas strongly de-
eloped in its comic qualities as in the melo
dramatic direction. Manager Sanger prom
ises an elaborate scenic prouuction, embrac
ing all the latter day realistic and mechan
ical effects. The plav will be under the su
pervision of Mr NutB. snder, the well
known -tage director, and the company in
cludes Joseph S heeloclCjOneofthecleverest
diameter- actors on the American stage,
who will play Mr. Potter. Jc3rs Lewis
will be seen as Ijady Annerly, a character
which is Mild to fit Jicr admirablj. Charlie
not is taken by Mr. Maui ice Drew, a young
iictor not entirely unknown to local theatergoer-
There,is not an actor on the American
stage who deserves a heartier welcomo
wherever ne goes than Sol Smith Kussell.
He is not onl a comidian of rare and en
gaging talent, but a man whose work has
nlw ays been on the side of sound morality
u well ns honest humor. I think that if
thcie were more Jeffersons and Kussells on
the stage tl.e thcaier-going public would
multipH auiazinglj, and Iain suro that the
material profits of actors and managers
would be greater if they took a leaf or two"
out of Mr Uussell'a book.
in "Peaceful Valle ," w hicli ho presents
this week at the Alvin, it is said that Mr.
Kussell has lound in the character of Hotea
Jlowe a worthy companion to the part of
juaA Fate. In the new comedy we en
counter an original tvpe of character, a na
tive of the mountains, who, like so many
oung men of that legion, earns the money
ior his college course by waiting on the
The play, it is said, is full of the spirit of
humanity, and has excited the deejiest in
terest both in its comic and pathetic por
tions. Mr. Joseph Jellerson was so charmed
with "Feaceful Valley" that he kindly fur
nished pencil draw iugs of the scenes for the
first two acts, which Mr. Kussell and Man
ager Berger have elaborately followed. The
supporting company includes bucIi names as
Miss Minnie Jladcllff, Annan Belmont,
Lillian Chantore, Airred Hudson, Arthur
Byron, Edward Vioom and Charles E.
The trifling thing that Richard Golden
needs now is a play. Jed Prouty is a char
acter of some qualntness and power, and
Mr. Golden's embodiment of it is very
clever. Butono character, no matter how
well played, docs not make a play. I hope
Mr. Golden will stumble upon a good play
There is a new play and a new star at
tiie Grand Opera House this week. "The
"Witch" is the play and Marie Froh-
man is the star. Both have been praised
by men who ought to know what they're
talking about, and we have the prom
ise of Manager Frohman that the pro
duction shall be artistic to the last detail.
The story of the play Is founded on the
witchcraft panic in 1632. The truth has not
been sacrificed, and unlike most bis
torical dramas and novels, "The Witch" can
be used as a history lesson with advantage.
The aim or the authors to cnrrcctlv
reproduce has been seconded by Manager
Fmhman in the stage setting ot tho plav.
The scenery is not only beautiful.it is said,
but annronnate to the minutest particular.
Two ot the scenes especially receive praise.
The one representing the common in old
Salem, and the other, "Gallows Hill" at day
break. Miss Frohman made her debut as the
sympathetic heroine in "Mav Blossom,"
afterward starring iii atriple bill comprising
"King Kcne's Daughter," "Snow Bound" and
"False Charms." Her career has not been
long nor varied, but she bas made something
of a reputation already. Business Manager
Jnrcensen's innovation in tho manner
of printing the cast on the programmo Is
worthy of praise. The characters are ar
ranged and numbered according totheii first
entranco, so as to enable the spectator to at
once recognize tbem. There will be matinees
Wednesday and Saturday.
Those prime favorites, Weber and
Fields, will bring their Own Company to
Harry Williams' Academy this week. It is
composed of the ablest people on the vaiiety
stage. Those invincible Irish comedians,
the Kussell Brothers, will be seen in their
laughable specialties, and Filson and Errol
will give their finished act, "Women versus
Men." Then there is Morris Cronin, the
"Athletic Swell," and Johnston, Kiano and
Bentlev. Tho musical comedians, Swift and
Chase, are extremely clever, and so Is Miss
Maud Uuth in her negro refrains. The
sketch artists, Lavender and Thomson, do
somo verv clever specialties, and "Island
City Gems," Dry den and Mitchell, add to tho
brightness of the performances. Tho ath
lete, John Whitman, does some wonderful
things, an-1 those sterling German come
dians, Weber and Fields, are a host in them
selves. The atterpiece is entitled "The Off
Uns." "Daniel Boone" will be presented at
narris' Theater this week by the Peck and
Tursman Company. It is one of the most
successful American dramas befoio the pub
lic. There is no blood and thunder but
plenty of wholesome comedy. Trick horses
are introduced and real Indians emploj ed
to give additional realism. Music is one oi
the special features of the perlonnanco ana
a full brass band and orchestra have been
The Elks benefit, v' icb. takes place at

ises to be as .great a su. cess as any of its

list of attractions ought to convince every
one that a largo return for money given to a

directed, and for this reason also the benefit
The success of "The Tar and the Tartar"
in Its second visit this season to this city
shows that it is what the people want.
There is nothing new to be said about its
merits, but I hope Manager Askin, Dishy
Bell and other buy and deserving bees In
this hive will continue to gather lots of
honey for their deserts are large.
There is to be pictorial splendor or an
nnique sort at this house this week. Mr.
Frederick H. Dcvine, said to be a phenom
enal landscape painter, and a graduate of
England's Royal Institute, will paint pic
tures in public The wonderful part of his
work is that ho can execute a picture in a
moment or two. His rapidity of composi
tion is said to besimplv marvelous, and only
equaled by tho high quality of the pictures
when completed. On Friday afternoon a
painting by Mr. Devine will be given to
everv lady visitor. A mysterious element
will be introduced bv Francis Morrisey and
Millie Larair, who are said tobo ,tslcnted
mind reiders and masters of second sight.
They will tell von ail you know and a good
deal more besides that is hidden in your
heart. Two lovelv Spanish women, the
Senora Isabella and her daughter, will sing
their native ballads to accompaniments on
national instruments. In the theater the
Dondohers will given meritorious specialty
Harry Davis Muieum-Theater.
Of course, the feature of the big entertain
ment here will be the great barbers' tourney,
but the other attractions are equally meri
torious. Apropos of the shaving contest
Razorette will appear in his most astonish
ing act, swallowing keen-edged razors,
knives and bayonets. Florotta will be seen
eating flaming tongues of fire. A group of
the best- figures rroin jnauame Aussauna's
collection of wax figures will be placed on
exhibition in the theater. A well organized
company of vaudeville artists will appear.
Among tho number will bo noticed an old
Pitthurg favorite in the person of Tom
Hefron, tho great one-legged song and dance
Johk D. Gilbert Is the latest brand saved

will appear at the Dnquesne Theater next
week in a wonderfully varied repertoire.
Whew Mrs. Leslie Carter gets through
with "Miss Helyctt" she will nse n romantic
emotional play which David Belasco is writ
ing for her.
The Pitou Stock Company will not come to
Pittsburg as soon as was anticipated. It
will probably be at the Duquesne the latter
part of March. '
Kate Ostlttoit is credited with making a
substantial success in her now farce comedy,
"The Dazzler." It will follow "Mr. Potter
of Texas" at the B(jou.
Theatrical business in New York, with
three or four exceptions, is bad, and here
the managers are not coining fortunes either.
The high quality of the attactions this week
should act as a tonic.
The second number of the new dramatic
publication, the Chicago Dramatic Hoot, is
so good that Editor Leander Richardson
may flatter himself he has a winner in the
West as w ell as in the East.
"Bcixs akd Bears," Bartley Campbell's
comedy, which was produced in San Fran
cisco vears ago. is to be revived. James B.
Radcliffe and Harry Evtinge will be in the
cast. A son of the lato dramatist is to bo the
Makaoer David Henderson is reaping the

Abbott's manager, but of late half owner
and manager or the Coloman Hou.sc in New
York, has sold ont his interest in that hotel,
and will leturnto the operatic business.

THErae hundredth performance of "La
Cigale" will occur on February I, at the
Garden Theater, and every seat in the house
has been sold. The souvenir consists of a
silver frame, on one side of which Is a pho
tograph of Miss Russell and on the other
side a programme or the evening's entertain
ment. The latest opera coat is a long garment of
tan ladies cloth, which has Just a faint tinge
of rose about it. There are three capes,
graduated in length, each outlined with
mink rur. Tho collar Is a high Medici, edged
with the mink. The garment is lined
throughout with a changeable silk of a green
ish pink hue.
The ultra-realistic effector darkness used
in the Meiningers' "Julius Csesar," was too
much for the nerves of two good old ladies
who were mounting the stairs to the bal
cony on Wednesday afternoon at the Du
quesne, and when the lights went out they
let out piercing screams, bringing Manager
McCullough to the spot in a gre- hurry.
Margaret Mather's present season, which
embraced a seven weeks' tour of tho South.
has, it is said, been tho most successful of
her career. Her comedy work in her new
double bill was everywhere received with
favor. She has in preparation a new play
from Victor Hugo's "Hunchbaok of Notre
Dame," which she will give for the first
time in Chicago, February 15.
A large theater party ot the Evanston
admirers of Miss Kathryn Kidder will attend
the performance of "St. Marc" at the. Hay
market, on Monday evening next, says
Chicago's Dramatic Krws. Miss Kidder is a
great favorite among Evanstonlans, and she
bas been making steady improvement in her
work as an actress since she became leading
lady of Joseph Ha worth's company.

Fiiiosis Witsoif and Ills "Lion Tamer'' is
comfortably fixed at the Broadway Theater
for a run that will continue, from present
indications, until it is timo for him to vacate
lor his Pacific coast tour." The "Lion
Tamer" bas become a social and artistic hit
that taxes the capacity of this Dig house to
its utmost and calls out tho largest advance
scat sale known there since the theater was
opened for patronage. This is gratifying,
for tho season has been rather disastrous for
many managers and for some Metropolitan
theaters. One feature of the Lion Tamer
"rage" is the large and fashionable theater
pai ties that, finding scant accommodations
in the orchestra and orchestra circle, owing
to tho big general Eale, have taken to the
balcony (which in the Broadway Theater is
ono of tho beit sections of the house), and
the result has been an exoessive patronage
of that part of tho theater.
At the Actors' Fund Fair meeting in New
York the other day at the conclusion of Mr.
Palmer's address,' he introduced Mrs. Ken
dall, who spoke very earnestly in lavor of
the project, and, among other things, said
that she would, when the proper time came,
contribute $500 in addition to the S500 which
she had already given to the Actors
Orphans' Home. Mrs. Kendal did not pursue
her subject with exact coherency, ana when
she stated that sho would go to any length
to serve the falr.even In doing a skirt dance,
Mrs. Agnes Booth Scboeffel became visibly
annoyed. Mrs. Schoeffel followed Mrs. Ken
dal, and stated in substance that she did not
consider that it would be much of a sacrifice
if any woman performed a skirt dance, and
pointed to the fact that years ago she
danced In the mining oamps out West. This
statement was taken, and was obviously
meant as a rebuke to Mrs Kendal, and that
lady appeared greatly confused Tor the mo
