Clara Morris and the Crystal Slipper to
Come Here at a Near Day, With
Other Interesting; Notes.
Robert Planquette's The Privateer,
now being performed at the Tivoli opera
house, has about it a spice both of John
Paul Jones and Clara Melnotte. Francis
Gaillard, the Paul Morand of the cast,
combines the interest of the Scotchman
who was the first naval officer of the
United States and also of Bulwer's gar
dener's son. Both went to the wars to
win money enough to outbid "a sordid
huckster" who sought by reason of
wealth and station to deprive the poor
lover of his lady-love. Paul went pri
vateering and Claude followed the cam
paigns of the first Napoleon. The scenes
of Planquette's work are laid in Nassau,
New Providence and Salem. Mass., dur
ing the struggle for American independ
ence, and at its close. The action is
lively and interesting. The music is
smooth, agreeable and simplicity itself
—well sung by Lou Royce, as Lila, an
old merchant's ward ;by Alice Gaillard,
his wife; Francis Gaillard, Henry Nor
man, Arthur Mesrner, Richard Valerga
and others. As Kerbynew. the old mer
chant, Fred Urban is at his best in char
acterization, and Norman and Harris
play the old privateersmen, respectively
Bernard and John Mark, as sonant as a
full nor'wester. —San Francisco Call.
Los Angeles is by no means lacking in
appreciation of any sort of good amuse
ment. Last week was an exceptional
one in this city. It opened with two
performances by Maude Granger at the
Grand. The house was tilled to its com
fortable capacity both nights. The gross
receipts must have been nearly if not
quite $1,000 per night, the best seats
being only $1. John Robinson's circus
gave a matinee and one evening per
formance here, and took in perhaps
$15,000 for the two occasions.
The Crystal Slipper will be given
here at a near day. George Barnes, of
the Call, says of the presentation in San
Francisco: The Grand opera house is
just now the center of attraction. The
management must be reaping a harvest
with The Crystal Slipper. Seats are
at a premium, and those who wish to
enjoy this spectacle, exceptional in its
beauty, must be prompt in their appli
cation at the box office. It might be to
some purpose, perhaps, if one wished to
exhaust space, to speak in detail of this
glittering show; but it would be better
for those who wish to know what the
modern stage is capable of—snchastage,
for example, as the Grand opera house,
the best in the United States—when
wealth and intelligence combine in a
production—to see the results for them
selves. Last evening, the third from the
opening, there was standing room only,
and we have no doubt this will be the
condition of the auditorium until the
close of the engagement. Somebody lo
cally says in regard to this magnificent
affair: "Chicago has done well" (where
it ran for several weeks). Chicago, bah.
San Francisco has a way of judging for
for itself. It is giving its judgment,
now, at the Grand opera house, and
would have just as effusively endorsed
The Crystal Slipper if the city by the
lake had never enjoyed its beauties.
We do not take on tone from Chicago.
Mr. and Mrs. Kendal sailed Septem
ber 27th in the Etruria from Liverpool.
They have recently been playing All for
Her in the large English cities. In this
drama Mr. Kendal is said to do some of
tbe best work that he has ever attempted.
The Kendals are playing this piece for
the first time, having purchased the
English and American rights from the
author. It will be the second play in
their repertoire at the Fifth Avenue
theatre. Their company this season
consists of Florence Bennett, Florence
Cowell, Violet Vanbrugh, Nellie Camp
bell, Barbara Huntley, E. Fairbrother,
J. B. Barnes, A. M. Denison, J. E. Dod
son, Joseph Came, Seymour Hicks, H.
Deane, H. B. Wildman, H. Nye Chart,
Herbert Cathcart, Arthur White and
H. S. Riddell.
Nat Goodwin's season begins at Min
neapolis, this evening, Oct. 6, with A
Gold Mine, but when he reaches
Hooley's Chicago Theater, Oct. 20, Le
ander Richardson's comedy, The Nom
inee, will be produced for the first
time, and with it a pretty little one-act
play called The Viper on the Hearth.
Mr. Goodwin's company is composed of
the following members: Paul Arthur,
J. H. Brown, Leu Hust, Miss Mabel
Amber, Mrs. Margaret Fitzpatrick;R. G.
Wilson, Stewart Allen, A. C. Vernon,
Miss Vergie Graves, and Miss Ida Van
Sicklin. Mr. John F. Warner is, as
nsual, Mr. Goodwin's manager.
Tonight the talented tragic actor, Mr.
John S. Lindsay, opens his week's en
gagement at the Academy of Music on
Fifth street. The advance sale, which is
being conducted by Mr. Ben Stone man at
his music store, is good, and a large
house by our best citizens is assured.
Ingomar, the Barbarian, a beautiful
Elay, will be the opening bill. It must
c remembered that the prices for the
engagement are only twenty-Bye and
fifty cents, without any extra charge for
reserved seats. Managers Wyatt and
Conant have organized a first-class or
chestra, which will furnish the music.
The New York World says: Clara
Morris has never appeared on the Pacific
coast. Her plan of operations for the
coming season includes a trip to the
Golden Gate and a visit to other cities
of the far west. Nyra Crinkle is just a
bit off in. this. Clara Morris has played
at least one season, and a most success
ful one at the Baldwin, Sau Francisco.
This was about 10 years ago, the exact
date is not fixed in the writers mind

Good plays pay. There is the biggest
field in the world open to talent in the
writing of good plays. The Henrietta
and Shenandoah are known here. They
pay, as the following will show : How
ard's Henrietta in three seasons netted
the author $21,000; Howard's Shenan

the author $20,000.
Superba, a new spectacle by John
H. McNally, the dramatic editor of the
Boston Herald, was given its first pro
duction in Albany by the Hanlon Broth
ers last Monday night. The Hanlons
have been at work on the piece for the
last two years. A magnificent display
is promised of scenery, costumes, magical
tricks and transformations.
Henry E. Dixey gave the people four
evening performances and one matinee.
The Grand was filled, jammed, packed.
The aisles were filled with standers to
hear Adonis and the Seven Ages. The
five performances were worth in the
gross $6,000 or $7,000, perhaps more.
The gross results of the week in the play
line were, say, close up to $25,000.
Manager J. M. Hill prides himself on
his New England birth, and that is why
it is claimed he has such a warm spot in
his heart for The County Fair, where
the scenes of New England life are so
vividly depicted, in the Union square
theatre, New York, presentation given
by Neil Burgess.
Lawrence Barrett began his prelim

Milwaukee. He joins Edwin Booth in
Baltimore, November 3rd. and from that

A REAL LIVE SPOOK.
DISCOVERED BY THE LENSES OF A
PHOTOGRAPHER'S CAMERA.
A Sensational Episode in a Photographic
Establishment—A Figure in a Shroud
With a Beckoning Finger.
A lady who is well known in society
circles of this city recently had a most
curious experience at a photographer's
establishment. She and the picture
taker both desired their names to be
suppressed; the lady because of the
notoriety which would at once attach
itself to her, and the photographer be
cause as he expressed it "such a story
would ruin my business." He is a most
respectable man, one of the best known
and favorite men in his business in the
city. Neither the lady or the man are
spiritualists. The man believes that all
alleged "spirit photographs" are frauds.
The personal identity of the two is not
essential; the story is told here just as
it occurred, and if anyone can explain
it they are smarter than the participants
are.
The lady, who for convenience will be
called Mrs. A., went to Mr. B's photo
graphic gallery some two weeks ago to
have her picture taken. She took her
position and the man threw his cloth
over his head to arrange the focus, etc.,
when with an exclamation of fright his
head bobbed suddenly out from beneath
its covering and he stared at the lady.
"What is the matter?"she asked.
"Oh, nothing," he replied.
"Did anyone pass behind you just
then?"
"Why, certainly not," she answered.
He, without going to the trouble of
looking through the camera, again took
the picture and went into the dark
room with it. He came bouncing out in
a few minutes and with a white face
and strange manner, said that she must
sit again. She,complied,and again when
he proceeded to ' adjust the lenses he
could not restrain his terror. His face
became beaded with a cold perspiration,
his hands trembled so that he could
hardly proceed with the work. Five
times did he take the lady's picture, re
fusing to give her any explanation of
his strange behavior. At last he told
her she would have to go to some other
place; he could not take her picture
satisfactorily. Then slib insisted on an
explanation. He refused for a long
time, but at last he made her faithfully
promise not to divulge his name to any
one, and he brought her the live plates
from the dark room. In each of them
by her side, dressed in grave clothes,
with outstretched arm and beckoning
finger, stood the figure of a person who
had been very near and dear to her, but
who had recently died. The lady
nearly fainted and denounced the
thing as a trick, but was soon
convinced by absolute proof that if there
was fraud the photographer did not
know of it or participate in it. The
photographer fully developed the plates,
and the portraits of the living and the
dead are exact and startling.
The lady is not in the least supersti
tious, but the inexplicable affair and
perhaps tlie beckoning finger of the ter
rible figure, has worn on her nerves so
as to render her seriously ill, while the
photographer is so badly upset by tbe
gruesome incident that he hardly dares
to peer through a camera any more.
There is the story. It is a true one ;
the facts as stated occurred just as
described, and can be verified if it
should become necessary. It is passing
strange, is it not?

THE SLATE WON.
How the Pumpkin Rollers
Were All Bamboozled.
The Wool Pulled Over the Eyes
of the Unwary.
Jim Meredith and Fred Smith Made
the Scape Goats.
In Other Respects the Ringsters' Candi
dates Went in in Spite of Secret
Ballots and Much Reform
Pretense.
There has been a great cry in Repub
lican ranks for months past for political
reform. There never was a party that
needed reform more in any locality than
the g. o. p. in this neck of the woods at
this particular juncture. It has held
most of the local offices for the past four
to six years, and in that time has de
veloped more official rascality than any
record in the state before. It has fairly
reeked with rottenness. Years ago El
Hyder Hammond levanted with $12,
--000 of the people's taxes, and to this day
no earnest effort has been made to bring
his bondsmen to taw and make them
pungle, as it is denominated in their
bonds. Last year came to the surface
prolonged, repeated, multitudinous and
wholesale corruption in the county aud
itor's office. Charges were broughtagainst
the head of the office, but
proof was not gotten to convict him;
his deputy is charged with the offense,
but no steps are being taken to try him.
A deputy county clerk is also under nu
merous indictments, but his cases hang
fire month in and month out, and no
movement is made to try him. The
money stolen from the county has not
been replaced, nor are there any move
ments apparent to recoup the tax-pay
ers. One justice of the peace figured in.
an extorsion suit with the editor of tmj
Tribune, in which his character was
smirched to the disgrace of his party.
Another has just been on trial for con
nection with a notorious forgery case.
And he is also charged with concealing
the culprit. That culprit was an ex
assemblyman elected by the Republi
cans, and he was a leading light in the
party. He is charged with forgery, and
no end of stories as to his
smooth ways of raising the wind
are on the streets. His trial was
thought to be coming off a few days ago,
and it is alleged that in one of the super
ior courts there were at that time 170 odd
jurymen from whom todraw ajuryjto try
him. He was conveniently taken ill
and his trial goes over until heaven
knows when. So the tale of woe goes, to a
length that would tire the patience of
any one to recount or read. It was not
unmatural under these circumstances
that the people who pay the taxes and
who want a pure and honest govern
ment should be up in arms against this
shameful regime of rottenness. The
demand on the part of the people for
reform was general, loud and emphatic.
Now mark the result! The entire cor
rupt element of the party joined lustily
in the cry of stop thief. Men who
time and time again have been known
to have indulged in the pleas
ant political pastime of buying
votes, in that of stuffing, steal
ing, and kicking ballot boxes around the
streets, all joined in the great hue and
cry of reform!
All the same,under cover of the smoke
thus created, the ring, composed mostly
of the office holders, got in and made a
slate. As far back as September 10, the
Herald was able to print a partial
list of those whose names were listed for
office by the ring. It said Aguirre,
Meredith, Banbury, Judges Clark, Mc-
Kinley and Shaw, were in it. That Per
ry was of the number, but would have a
hard right if he won ; that Francis was
beaten, and that so was Cheney.
On September 29, before the conven
tion had assembled in this city at all,
the Herald gave the slate in its more
nearly perfected form, as follows:
Aguirre, Meredith, Kelly, Whitney,
Howe, Field, Perry. Banbury, Shaw,
McKinley, Smith and Carpenter.
It was noted that there was a big fight
going on against Meredith, but tliat he
would probably overcome it, and that
there was so hot a tight on the assessor
ship that Perry would be beaten. At
the same time and for long before ii,
Seamans had been slated and so had
Moore and so was Weldon.
The country delegates came in
alarmed and demanded that the eut
and-dried committees, which the slate
chairman had in his pocket, be enlarged
so as to give the ''pumpkin-rollers"
some voice in the convention. This
was done as a tub to the whale. Then
the secret ballot was invented to allay
the anxiety of the country delegates.
But of what avail was it all ? The com
binations had all been made. It was
too late to change anything outside of
one or two names. Perry was beaten.
He had made a political blunder
by his right on Bob Piatt,
a scheme never concocted by Perry, hut
which a notorious incubus with which
he had loaded himself devised. This
defeated the aspiring supervisor. Jim
Meredith was made the scapegoat of the
crowd, and he was driven into the po
litical wilderness with all the sins of his
party on his shoulders. It was too big
a load for even Jim's broad back, so
Fred Smith, who is cradited with doing
so able work at the primaries with his
gang of—as is reported—2so deputies
at his back, was sent to help Meredith
convey the putrid mass of official and
political corruptionout of sight. All the
rest oi the slate went through as slick as
grease, and as these two poor devils
totter offloaded with the multitudinous
sins of tho party on their backs, the
gang left behind all join in a general
jubilee over what they try to make the
people believe to be a broken slate, a de
feated ring, and a great reform in poli
tics. Well, if hades is governed by the
popular will, its history must be filled
with the record of just such reforms.
THE TABLES TURNED.
A Republican Who Wanted to Vote at
Democratic Primaries.
A morning paper contained an item
yesterday to the effect that a Mr. Thos.
Gorman of the Seventh ward Republi
can association noticed as one of the
judges of election at the Democratic
primary in the Second ward, a young
man who made himself very annoying,
at the recent Republican primary inj
the Seventh ward, "ij challenging!
voters. j i
The voune man refertedjto was Mr.
T. Ross wtv wac nv.:_ appointed .ioJj
as inspector at precinct Bof tho SecotJß
ward by toa county Central con-iuittejl
Mr. Ross stated to a Hebald reporter
last night that he had been requested to
act as challenger at the Jftcent Republi
can primary in the Seveiwn ward, owing
to the absence of the*>r»ginal appointee,
and that while he wsft so acting, Gor
man abused him in a disgraceful man
ner. Owing to Gorman's age and
debility he did not resent the abuse, as
he might have done, had he been
younger.
On Saturday, however, the tables were
turned upon Gorman, who, in spite of
the fact that he was a member of the
Seventh Ward Republican association,
attempted to vote at tbe Democratic
primary in precinct B of the Second
ward, and when challenged, refused to
be sworn by Inspector Ross. It is
hardly necessary to add that Gorman
did not vote, and that he had a long
story to tell the organ of his party about
Ross' duplicity.
POND AND COLEMAN.
Two Distinguished Democrats in the
City Talk on Politics.
Hon. E. B. Pond, the popular mayor
of San Francisco, and next governor of
California, passed through this city last
night en route from San Bernardino to
Bakersfield. He arrived at the Arcade
depot at 9:50 o'clock, departing again
on No. 20, which left at 10:40 o'clock.
He was met upon the platform of the
depot by a Herald reporter to whom he
expressed himself to the following effect:
"I have just completed a hasty tour
of Southern California, having
visited San Diego, Riverside,
San Bernardino, Santa Ana and
a number of other places. I cannot
find terms in which to sufficiently ex
press my gratitude for the most flatter
ing reception which was accorded to me
everywhere. The success of my trip has
exceeded my most sanguine hopes.
While at Riverside, which is renowned
for its Republicanism,! was assured that
a large number of Republicans would
vote for me, and I believe they will. I
found the San Diegans tremendously
enthusiastic and was very pleased with
the treatment I received at their hands.
I did not know how many friends I had
in that part of the state until recently.
I have also been to Santa Barbara, and
found the Democrats there to be much
stronger than I had anticipated. I am
confident that they will reduce the ma
jority there very considerably. I expect
to arrive at Bakersfield tomorrow and
from there 1 shall proceed northward."
James V. Coleman.
Hon. James V. Coieman, who, with
Hon. Walter C. Graves and Hon. Reel
B. Terry, will address a Democratic
mass meeting at Turnverein hall tonight,
arrived from San Diego yesterday morn
ing and registered at the" Nadeau. This
gentleman, so well known on the Pacific
coast as a thoroughbred Democrat, is
highly pleased with the political out
look. He had no hesitation in
saying that a Democratic victory
was a certainty, and that ac
cessions to the party were reported
every day. Mr. Coleman stated also
that the Pond and Del Valle mass meet
ing at San Diego on Saturday night was
a triumphant demonstration which
ought to till with delight the heart of
every Democrat. The reception to Mr.
Coleman tonight will open the eyes of
the g. o. p., and show them that defeat
is before them, beyond the shadow of a
doubt.
While Mayor Pond was in San Diego
lie made himself thoroughly acquainted
with its leading men.
■ A private despatch from that city says
that on Saturday evening Messrs."Pond
and Coleman addressed the largest poli
tical meeting ever held in San Diego.
The parade which preceded it was par
ticipated in by 500 torchbearers. There
were present also 100 Iroquois braves.
The candidate for governorship spoke on
the subject of state taxation, and his
remarks certainly enlisted for him many
a citizen who has hitherto given his vote
to the crowd which advocates Jingo
Blame and poor little hat - crushed
Harrison. Coleman and Byron Waters
followed in very happy addresses.
While the procession was wending its
way througli the fine thoroughfares of
the sister city a wagon loaded with fire
works exploded. Mr. Coleman in his
speech tookoccasion to mention this, and
used it as a simile on the outburst of
uncontrolable Democratic enthusiasm
which could not await its turn, but Ro
man candle-like, went off in one
grand, spontaneous and glorioas com
bustion. In the same way would the
Democratic party on November 4th,
show that spontaneous enthusiasm
which was bound to wreck the Republi
can part}' in California for all times
coming.
WITTKE RELENTED.
He Caught the Offender, But Let
Him Go.
Mr. R. Wittke, grocer at 229 Kuhrtz
street, East Los Angeles, met with an
accident on Saturday evening, while
driving in a buckboardin Boyle Heights.
At the corner of Lotta and First streets,
a colored man named Wilkinson, who
was driving a six-horse team, hauling
two wagon loads of brick for W. E.
Rogers, Collided with Wittke's vehicle
and took off its front wheel. Mr.
Wittke's little boy jumped out and
caught their horse. Wittke was thrown
to the ground and one of his arms
severely hurt. He was desirous of caus
ing the arrest of the colored man, and
for that purpose brought him as far as
the Pico house, but the entreaties of the
man caused him to let him go. Mr.
Wittke says there was no policeman in
sight from the time the accident hap
pened until he let the negro go.
