EL CAPITAN" SCORES A SURE HIT The Opera, Hopper and ills Wife, Edna Wallace, Are a Strong Com bination-Standing Room Only at Both HousesSnge Awakens His Subject, Williams, After His Forty eight Hour of Hypnotic Sleep. Last night was a profitable one for the theaters, and for theater-goers, too, if the attractions at the Fro thing ham and the Academy of Music count for anything. At the former place of amusement De Wolf Hopper and his "El Capitan" company kept the applause ringing from as large an audience as the thea ter would hold, and the sages and their mesmeric feats did much the same at the Academy, which also was rilled. "El Capitan" is all that has been claimed fur it. The vast audience that occupied every seat in the theater and much of the standing room went to see Hopper. Some later day It win again go to see not only Hopper, but his dashing little wife and "El Capi tan." The big singing comedian long ago made his hit with Scranton; In fu ture In this city he will have to share honors with Edna Wallace and his latest medium of comic opera tomfool ery, which is no other than a great success. That was the opinion of the .audience if the real "continuous" ap pluuse and apparent favor from the audience Is any criterion. Hopper, Edna xalluce and "El Capitan" are a strong triumvirate. The opera was evidently built to fit the big star and his wife. Its dash and swing of Sousanlo, rythm, the oppor tunity for his inimitable comedy and her grace, sweetness, vivacity and ab sence of blase Dellalsm were all inter woven in a way that pleased. The opera is staged ad lib. Its costuming is something new and depends upon plcturcsqueness for approbation rather than upon spangles and llmbdom. The scheme requires no settings, but their absence was more than compensated by the fine scenery of the three acts and only as many scenes. Its one startling departure from old operatic Ideas was the absence of ballet or concert dancing of any kind and like wise of the scant attire and lace which has heretofore been adjudged neces sary. What little dancing there was, appeared among the principals on only two occasions and then as an accom paniment to the "Zanzibar" topical song. SYNOPSIS OF THE PLAY. Briefly, "El Capitan" is "Medlgua," or Hopper very much of him. He is viceroy of a Spanish province In Peru and an arrant coward. A rebellion among his subjects causes him to dis appear as viceroy nnd to turn up as "El Capitan" In the ranks of the In surgent army, where he tights against himself until reinforcements from Spain restores him to power. Mean while he captivates Estrelda (Edna Wallace) the daughter of the insurgent leader, her finance and Medlgua's wife in their strife for his affection furnish the source of much of the opera's com edy. Alfred Klein, as Pozzo, the cham berlain, who Is palmed off on the in surgents ns the viceroy, becomes tangled in much trouble and is one of the humors of the plot. .Miss Wallace will never be accused of being other than a parlor singer, but she Is refreshing and sparkling and an artistic relief from her predecessor In the Hopper companies. The real sing ers of "Kl Capitan" are Nella Bergen as Medlgua's daughter, Edmund Stanley as Count venada, a Peruvian nobleman, and the en semble chorus. John Parr Is a good looking and grace ful Scarambu. and Estrella couldn't be criticised for her regard Tor him. Alice Hosmer as the blue-blooded spouse of the viceroy was clever. The remain der of the support was also excellent. If "El Capitan" comes again, it will be royally greeted. After the second net the audience would not permit Hopper to respond with others of the company to Its cur tain call. He was forced to show himself unattended and made one of his Jumping hit speeches without "Casey At the Bat." AT THE ACADEMY. At 9.45 o'clock, to the very minute, as promised. Hypnotist Sage last night in the Academy awakened Frederick J. Williams, who on Monday night was put into a cataleptic sleep and exhibit ed for forty-eight hours in the win dow of Dunn's hat store, on Wyoming avenue. At the time appointed the subject was carried on to the stage, at tired in a dressing gown and wrapped in the quilt which had covered him on the cot, which formed his resting place In the store window. Five men caught hold of him to keep him from straining or otherwise In juring himself while going through the involuntary contortions induced by the relaxation of the muscles as he emerged from the cataleptic state. Then Sage started to rouse him. First he passed his hands over the subject's brow and then commenced clapping his hands In close proximity to the sleep er's ear. shouting to him at the same time "You're awake," "You're all right." "You're awake," "Wake up here." Soon the subject began to respond to the hypnotic power and In a few mo ments was squirming and twisting so violently that It was all the Ave men who were holding him could do to keep him from getting away from the chair, on which they were vainly endeavor ing to keep him in a sitting posture. After about a minute of this squirm ing the subject suddenly ceased his struggling, relaxed his muscles and smilingly assured his captors that they migm rust mm to oenave himself. They released him and after rubbing his eyes he gaxed out on the audience and bowed his acknowledgmets of the applause which greeted the wonderful art. He then walked briskly over to the scales and was weighed by H. 17. Hopewell, who was on Monday night selected by the audience to be weigh- master. Mr. Hopewell announced that Williams tipped the beam at 129 pounds, which he said was six pounds less than he weighed before going Into his long sleep and fast, Monday night. Mr. Sage then read the affidavit of the three citizens who watched over Will lams during his sleep and who affirmed that he nelthel partook of food or drink, awoke or showed any signs of consciousness since he was placed un der their surveillance Monday night. Williams was not what might be called ravenously hungry after his long fast. He first partook of boiled milk, then some wine, then milk toast and followed it up after a short interval with an ordinary meal. In two or three days at the most, he says, he will have regained his former weight. Al though giving this same exhibition ev ery other week he avers that he never enjoyed better health or spirits than at present. The other features of the Sage's per formance, particularly the baloon as cension, were provocative of the usual roars of laughter. The cenematograph was also the source of much enter tainment and great wonderment. Tonight there will be a number of colored people on the stage. IN ORPHANS' COURT. Before Judge Gunster In Orphans' court yesterday morning, guardians of minor children were appointed as follows: E. if. Eitabrook, miner child of Jennl O. Ksta- brook, late of Jackson township.

CHAMBERLAIN MAKES ANSWER. Responds to the Complaint of the Acme Coal Comp ny. George F. Chamberlain, of Shaw & Chamberlain, defendants In the big equity suit brought by the Acme Coal company made answer yesterday to the plaintiff' bill through his attor neys, Patterson & Wilcox. He denies that the coal which .they leased to the Acme company Is of such a defective quality that it can not be sold, and attributes the Acme com pany's alleged Inability to mine mar ketable coal from the tract In ques tion to its Incompetency and not to any fault of the coal. EASTERN LEAGUE MEETS. Troy Wants to Eater No More 'Farmed" Players Looger Schedule Next Year. AU the prominent men of the East ern Base Ball league were at the Fifth Avenue hotel yesterday, says a United Press dispatch to The Tribune.

The board of directors were in session all morning formulat ing a report fur presentation to the an nual meeting of the league, which did not convene until 3 o'clock in the after noon. The directors' meeting adjourned at 2.15 o'clock. The directors did vary little business other than to officially place the eight clubs in the league ac cording to the percentages attained during the past season and to get the various complaints and disputes in proper condition for formal considera tion at the league meeting in the af ternoon. The placing of the clubs are, ns announced by Mr. Powers, as fol lows: Providence club, winner of the league championship pennant: Buffalo sec ond, Rochester third, Toronto fourth, Syracuse fifth, Springfield sixth, Wllkes-Barre seventh, and Scranton eighth and last. GOOD-BYE TO FARMERS. Some very Important business was transacted. By an unanimous vote the league dispensed with the "farming" system, thus running counter to the magnates of the National league.

Troy and Worcester put In applica tions for Toronto's franchise, but as there is a disposition on the part of some Toronto people to keep the club going, the matter was referred to Pres ident Powers. It was rumored that a combination between Troy, Worcester and Toronto will be formed so that the latter may remain In the league. Bogert, Shean and Kuntzsch were ap pointed a committee on revision of the constitution, to report rjt the spring meeting. A LONGER SEASON. It was decided to put in next year's schedule one hundred and twenty-six games Instead of 112 which constituted last year's schedule, and the season will begin on April 29 and last until Sep tember 20 following.

Samuel Halper, a Jewish pack ped dler, about 20 years old, whose home Is at 144 South Fell street, Wllkes-Barre, was decoyed by some unknown man into a vacant house in Duryea at 8 o'clock yesterday morning and was robbed of all the money ho had, and was almost murdered besides. The scene of the crime is an old two story frame house, unoccupied, which Is located along the Lehigh Valley's Avoca branch, Just above the bridge crossing the Bloomsburg division, 'xne house is owned by James Kennedy, of Duryea, and there is another house In the same lot not more than mt" feet away. The house was entered from the back, the kitchen door being open. In the kitchen were found on the floor the peddler's pack and his basket. LARGE POOL OF BLOOD. In the room leading off from the kitchen Halper was assaulted. Just In side the dour was a pool of thick blood, almost two feet In diameter, and there were smaller pools In several other spots. The Instrument used lay on the Door, beside the pool of blood. It was a bent piece of gas pipe, about two feet long, and was covered with blood. The young man's hat was found on the tloor. also the ring of his watch. Edward Miller and ullum Tracey, of Duryea, discovered the peddler alter he had been assaulted. He was stand ing on the road leading from the Old Forge to the Phoenix breakers, and his face was covered over with blood. They took him to the engine room of the iHd Forge breaker and sent for Dr. Pier, of Avoca. The doctor found hi head cut in several places, nnd there was a deep cut under the right eye. Later in the day the injured man was taken in a carriage to his home. The story he tells about the case was that he had Just begun his round of the houses close to the Lehigu Valley tracks, in the extreme lower end of the village, nnd was standing on a small road which leads up the hill Just back of the Columbia colliery, when he was approached by a man. whom he describes as being a short, thick-set fellow, with black hair and black eyes.

Real Winter Weather Promised for To dayStill Water Frcezss and Skating is Good. "Snow tonight and Thursday; tinned cold weather." con- That was the message received yes terday from the government weather manufacturing bureau. There was no "probability" about it the dispatch said snow and It was cold. It was cer tainly correct as far as the cold and yesterday were concerned and during all of the day everybody was satisfied It was so cold during the preceding night that skating was made possible on the several still sheets of water In and about the city. The small boy was not long in ascertaining that fact and was in his glory during the day. The thermometer registered 14 degrees above zero at G o'clock In the morning and about 20 degrees from noon until early evening when there was a slight drop. A warning was recived late yester day afternoon by Local Forecaster Dunn in New York city from Washing ton. It read as follows: Washington, D. C, The hsh winds are likely to cause drifting snow tonight, which may Inter, fere ulthrailroad travel along tha coast of the Middle and South Atlantic states. The storm will be very severe on the coast. Shipping should be warned nut to leave port. (Signed) Willis Moore, Chief Signal Officer. Speaking of weather, the report of Local Weather Observer Pulne for thi month of November Indicates a vari ety of temperature and things. The re port shown that the amount of rain fall was 3 inches; one Inch more than during November, 1SU5, and about one half Inch above the normal amount for that month. November was also characterized by warmth and cloudi ness. There were eighteen cloudy days ana only eignt clear dtiys. The aver age temperature was four degrees high' er than the corresponding month of last year. This was very remarkable, as it is seldom that the mean tempera ture present such difference. The high est registration for the month was 74 degrees and the lowest 23 degrees. It Is something unusual when during No vember the thermometer does not reg ister below 23 degrees. In l!95 the coldest November day was 15 degrees, a difference of 8 degrees in the corres ponding months. No snow or sleet storms were recorded. Twining, optician 125 Penn avenue.
