THE STAGE. “ The World ” at McTicker’s — A jScene-Paiuter’s Marvel. The Stage Carpenter Beveling Through Five Acts and Nine Tableaux. “ The Danicheffs ” at Hooley's Theatre, with James O’Neill as Ossip. “ The Hidden Hand ” and Pop ular Prices of the Grand. “Black Diamond” at the Olympic- Dramatic Jottings at Home and Abroad. “THE WORLD ” AT M’VTCKER’S. Skillful advertising and a previous good repa tntion brought to McVickcr's Theatre Thursday night a remarkable llrst-mght audience to wit ness the production of “ Tho World.” Only those can appreciate the attendance fully who remember the dismal opening of ilcVicker's seasons In IST4, 3875. 3STO, and 1877, when tho panic had left everybody poor or apprehensive of poverty, and the theatres had a struggle for existence. A ebeeful contrast was afforded to those bad times in the bustling audience of Thursday, which put standing-room nt a premi um and represented cash, not free tickets, as hrst-ulght audiences in Chicago are apt to do. -The World” did not fully meet public ex pectations. There is too much machinery in it uud 100 little intrigue. The stage-carpeutcr has full sway. It is bis piece from beginning to end. Without him it would be not hing. in an ordi nary theatre, with u small stage and no unusual scenic or mechanical effects, tho play could not hold au intelligent audience 'through a single evening. “The World” Is a good specimen of the mechanical drama. It is of a lower order even than the millinery drama by so much as the stage-mil liner has better taste and a more exalted mission than the stage-carpentcr or mechanic. It re quires more “soul” and “poetry” to dress a pretty woman becomingly than to make a scene revolve or a raft “ toss ” on a tempestuous can- vas ocean. Aside from’tho performances of the carpenter! who is plainly tho datscum machina of tho play, the meric of “The World ” lies solely in a num ber of isolated dramatic situations. Wo should not forget that they are dramatic, although they are pitched into the composition without much reference lo each other or to the general effect. The scene on tho steamer just before tbo explo sion, when tho duped conspirator be£j for a boat, is highly dramatic; so are the rau scene, the murder, the arrest, the unconscious testi mony of the governess, the escape from the in sane asylum. tho assault of Jlavry upon Mary, uad tho final catastrophe. The scene which has been referred to as “ tho assault,” has no par allel in recent stage history, and wo hope it may not soon have n companion. Its cold-blooded atrocity excels anything that was attempted in the Restoration comedies. Though it may be a strong dramatic situation it is not good art. It must have been suggested to tho English au thors by the heroic exploit of Col. Valentine Baker, and since his apotheosis by tho Ijondou clubs it is not perhaps strange that British au diences should tolerate such an exhibition; but the eoilrage of tbo persons who have introduced jtin America cannot be 100 much wondered at. When the strength of the situations has been admitted, very little remains to be said in favor of •* The World.” The dialog is not redeemed b>* a gleam of humor. There is not an epigram in it- Melodrama is not, of course, a fruitful field to search for epigrams, but since “The World ” bus a comic character there would seem to be no gross impropriety In giving him some thing winy to sny. The action is not consecutive. We expressed the opinion Friday morning that “Tho World” was originally two. and possibly three, plays. It has three authors, and each of them came to the task of collaboration. It is evldent,corapletely '•quipped with u plot, characters, and effects. Thu diamond conspiracy has nothing to do with the Insane asylum episode. The motive for put ting Sir Clement under Jock and key would have been us strong as if the Lily of tho Valley had not ocen blown up. Even Mo is intro duced somewhat clumsily as the connecting Jink, would have had sufficient room for joining the conspiracy if be had bad nothing to do with the infernal-machine and the insurance-fraud. “The Wor,d” deals with emotions of a low order. Avarice and fear are tho controlling motives. Love cuts no figure In It, The dra matists have rung the changes on parental love until it has become a wearisome theme when clumsily treated, but Its capacity for providing material to the clever playwright is inexhausti ble. And how much nobler and more’ refined a feeling it is than mere sordid passion! Compare “Tho World” with “The Two Orphans,” for example, and observe on how much lower a plane tho former is is than the latter. The tone of “ The World ” is positively vulgar. It is a criminal debauch in five acts and nine tableaux. It has, moreover, none of tho fine workmanship that “ The Two Orphans” exhibits. Such a thing as dramatic construction—that is to say, the putting to gether of situations once conceived so us to give them tho best possible effect in relation to each other—the authors of “The World” did not understand. Vet It Is tho touchstone of all really great plays. Tho acting of tho piece at McVlcker’e is quite equal to its merits. Tho first was badly done Thursday night, owing to the nervousness of the principal performers,, hut there was visible improvement toward tho end. Boland Heed’s Mo Jcuxll is perhaps con ventional, but there is really nothing in the part or In any cf tho others. Mr. George Mor ion’s Jlarrjf was pleasing because not overdone. The actor had the wisdom to let the authors play the villain through him instead .of attempting to exaggerate and trayestj* their Ideas, in view of tho extreme difficulty of tho part, and tho fair measure of success enjoyed in the presentation of it, Mr. Morton deserves to be congratulated. Mr. Crisp ns Sir Harry wus quite satisfactory in the scenes that reouired vigorous action, but not entirely «t bis ease In those which demanded only a modest deportment and simplicity of speech and manner. .Miss Agnes Proctor has improved decidedly in the lost few vears. Sbo dressed and acted tho part of Mabel with marked intel ligence. Miss Jletty Tracy was a shade 100 stiff and slow as Mary Itlythc, but agreeable through the reserve of her demeanor. The minor parts were almost without exception well taken. The acting was at no time offensively bad or ac cordant. it would be doing a great injustice to “Tho world to pass from tho mention of It without reference to tne triumphs of scenic and me chanic art with which it is adorned. Tho ex plosion of the Lily of the Valley, tho revolvin'* mad-house scene, tho raft, and the elevator arc all as wonderful as anybody could wish. Stage art has advanced a long wavsince Mr. Crummels could electrify his patrons with a pump, im mense audiences at four performances last week testilied their approval of “Tho World” in every usual manner. GRAND OPERA-HOUSE. *‘Tho Octoroon ” has been given at tho Grand Opera-House during the past week at popular prices. The attendance bus been satisfactory and the performances acceptable to those pres ent.

Tho O’Xelll-Morrison-Wood company, having played ‘•Saratoga” successfully at Hooley’s Theatre for two weeks, now announce the pro duction of “Ihe Danichoffs” to-morrow night. Mr. O'Xcill will undertake tho part of Ossip for the first time. It will not be strange if he shall <lo It well. He has the qualifications and tho ex perience for it, and it is distinctly in his lino. If he shall play it in the same manner as he recent ly did Jean lienaud ho will unquestionably achieve a great success. The cast In full will be as follows Ossip. Vladimir.

Germain “Undo Tom’s Cabin” has been driven at this theatre during the week at low prices. It will be repealed to-night. To-morrow “ Black Dia monds” will bo produced. The attendance at the Olympic through the summer has been quite satisfactory. • Miss Katharine Rogers has been engaged In the company that will travel with Signor Rossi □ext season. Minnie Conway, who married Levy the cornet blower some time ago, Is thinking of returning to the stage. “Michael Strogoff” requires for its repre sentation at the Paris Chutclct (150 persons, thirty horses, and one donkej*. 1 J. H. Havcrly has arranged to play the En glish actress. Jennie Lee, at the Fourteenth Street Theatre during August in “Poor Jo.” The widow of Ben dc Bar Is sewing wrappers for the wages of $1 a day at New Orleans. Seven years ago her husband was worth $300,000. “The World” will be succeeded by Mr. B. Curtis ns Sam'l of Posen at McVickcr’s Theatre. The latter piece has had a remarkable New York success since P. was last seen here. The American engagement of Signor Rossi will open at the Globe Theatre, Boston, on Oct. 3. The Italian tragedian will make his lirsc ap pearance in New York at Booth’s Theatre on Oct. 17. i Mcssrs. Paul Meritt and Augustus Harris, two of tho collaborators la the authorship qf “Tho World,” have just turned out a new drama, which will shortly be seen in London at the Drury Lane Theatre. Tho foundations of Wallack's new theatre In Now York are under rapid headway, and tho front of Harrigan & Hurt's uewedilico is al ready an ornament to the portion of Broadway on which it is situated. John E. Owens Is said to be so strapped finan cially that he will be compelled to sell his Balti more property. This is the last remnant of the large fortune of a man who but a lew years ago was called the richest actor la America. It is not likely that Eliza Wcalhersby will again resume acting-in burlesque or extrava ganza. She has several new pieces in which sbo proposes lo upbear, in roles of cho nature.of those performed by Lottu and Maggie Mitchell. Milton Nobles and Doily Woolwino were mar ried in Brooklyn a fow days ago. Before the ceremony the groom gave Miss Woolwino a resi dence in the City of Churches, a cottage on tho Shrewsbury Uiver, and a bank-book entitling her to $5,000. W. J. Florence tells of a country actor who had just returned from u short provincial en gagement, “ How did you pel on?” said .Flor ence. “Not very well,” replied the historian. *‘J played jack-knife engagements,—l opened ana shut tho same night.” Since her arrival Mrs. Edwin Booth has great ly improved in health. She has had the unre mitting attention of her mother.—Mrs. Mc- Vlckcr, and also of Mr. McVioker. The climate seems to have braced her up fur beyond tho ex pectations of her physicians. A now theatre for the Italian population of New York City was opened last week at No. 152 East Forty-second street by tho Toramaso Sal vini Philo-Dramatic Society, assisted by Signor and Signora Majcroni. Tbo house is an exceed ingly small one. Mr. John T. Raymond will continue his pres- entation of “ Fresh, tho American,” during the forthcoming season. The play has been greatly improved, and “genial John, as he is known in the profession, expects to win os many laurels as he has done heretofore In bis-interpretation of tho character of Colonel ScUers. Mr, Tracy Titus ,announccd in tho Detroit Sews Letter that Miss Ella Wren would star un der his management as Romeo , IlosalimL, and JlamkL .As she Is a rather elderly and very portly personage, sbo became naturally indig nant, not alone at tho announcement, but also that it should proceed from Mr. Titus. Miss Jeffreys Lewis, Osmond Tearle, and Ger ald Eyre opened ten weeks ago in San Francisco to a large business, which has kept up remarka bly well. Miss Lewis was enthusiastically re ceived by her old admirers, and Messrs. Tearle and'Eyre were accorded a favorable reception. The opening piece, “La Belle Russo,” was a version of “Forget-me-not.” Genevieve Warde, with Jennie June as her guest, is traveling in Switzerland. Miss "Warde returns to New* York about the middle of Sep tember, opening at tho Union Square Theatre on tbo 29th of that month. After that she makes an extended tour of the States till the middle of next May. Anew play, entitled “The Spider’s Web,” has been written for Miss Ward© by the Hon. Lewis Wingfield. Harry Sargent has just entered into an en gagement with Mile. Hbca, principal actress of tho French Imperial Theatre, Petersburg, Russia. She is said to be very famous in her own country and not unknown to America. She will play in English, and her successes in St. Petersburg will be presented in America, among them being “Adrienne Lecouvner,” “ Camille,” and “ Dlani do Lys,” She is young and handsome. Manager Goodwin of the Walnut 'Street Theatre in Philadelphia, will play “ The World ” in that city, Aug. 18. He had determined to dis regard Mr. Colville’s proprietary rights in tho play, and fight the matter in the courts. Mr. Colville backed down, and effected a compro mise both with Mr. Goodwin and with Mr. Hall, of tho Lyceum, in Philadelphia, where ho bad contracted to produce the plav. It would seem, therefore, that no exclusive property iu tho play legally exists. There are conllictlng stories in circulation concerning tho rumored engagement by Mr. Abbey of Wyndbara’s London Comedy company for the Park Theatre, New York. It Is confi dently declared on the one band that the con- tracts have been signed, and on the other that tho negotiations have come to naught. At tho headquarters of Mr. Abbey a most discreet si lence is observed, and it may therefore be safely conjectured that positive announcements of any kind on this subject are at least premature. Lawrence Barrett is passing the summer pleasantly among good friends In England. In a letter recently received he says: “ 1 went last night (July!) to see Irving as Han\lcL Hike him amazingly—unexpectedly to myself. lam afraid to say bow much. Ellen Terry is the best actress 1 ever saw. I was greatly pleased with *Julius Cjcsar* as done by tho German Company. The working of tho mob was tho chief glory of tho play. The cast was uniformly good: the Antony and Cassius were very good; but the scenery was beggarly, as compared with what we had in New York under Booth’s man agement. Irving speaks fondly of Booth, says there never was such a follow, and loves him as wo ail do.” A low-browed house stood on a plain Whose background was a mountain; And It was small, and brown, and plain, W’hllo neither flower nor fountain Adorned the grass around the door— The grass that grew untended Until it ran the straight path o’er. Nor was by fence defended. No flower was there? Yes—daisy white Its modest head uplifted. While on its face the summer-light Through waving boughs was sifted. 1 stooped to pluck—then paused to smile, For voice untrained was singing. And to and fro tho door tho while With dismal creak was swinging. By impulse moved I closed tbo door, Tho dismal creaking stilling; And then to cross the bare, worn floor Mv foot seemed more than willing. An ancient dnme, with wrinkled face. In straight-backed chair sat knitting. Ami scorned, with form devoid of grace. Tho poor old hut bclUtihS. 1 thought, “ O wretched, weary lifel O life devoid of bcautr! Whose every hour Is but a strife Between the tiesh and duty.” I would have said, “ Your life is wrong ’*— Would words of comfort spoken; But still she sang,/* My will is strong— May it, dear Lpnl, be" broken.** I turned and loft without a word— I left the old door swinging; And down the street her voice I hoard Like note of triumph ringing. A islting the East Side of upper New York a few days ago, the writer of this called at Jlr. George Kingicr’s beer brewery, ou Ninety-second street In conversation Hr.

The pain was so great that I was compelled to keep my room, and X suffered untold tortures, being unable to press my foot to the lloor for a long time. A friend told me of St Jacobs Oil. I secured a bottle one day and applied it according to direc tions. So marvelously rapid was the relief that I was able to walk down to business next day, and have not suffered an hour with rheumatism since. . . James O’Xeill Lewis Morrison L. Barrett Thco.

As the opera is new here, wo pre sent a brief sketch of the plot: Tho opera is founded on an old Julian super stition, in effect that there exists certain per sons who are “Mascots,” or hearth-fairies. Good fortune follows tho “Mascot" wherever she or he may be, and the possession of one of these remarkable beings Is, of course, highly desira ble. Tho “ Mascot” in this Instance is Bettina. a turkey-keeper, who is sent by a rich and pros perousfarmer to bis unfortunate brother. Lo renzo XVIL, Prince of Piombino, discovers tho value of the girl asa conjurorof good luck, and, first making her the Countess of Panada , takes her to the palace, tho poor farmer being made High Chamberlain. As the “Mascot’s” power disappears on her marriage, the Prince is kept constantly employed in preventing auv such contingency. The girl already loves Pippo, a shepherd boy, and the methods taken to thwart the wishes of tho young people, and tho circum stance that Prince Lorenzo’s daughter, tbo Princess FUimmctta, also falls in love with Pippo. leads to a great number of ludicrous situations. Pippo and Bettina are finally wedded, but not until the Prince, his daughter, and tho Lord Chamberlain are reduced to tho necessity of be coming street minstrels. Tho cast of the performance will bo as fol lows: Pippo... Lorenzo. 80cc0... Sergeant. Mattco... Bettina.. Flammetta., THE HERSHEY NORMAL CONCERTS. Burin* tho past week the Hershey School of Musical Art has given three concerts In Its nor mal course, swelling the number of concerts under the auspices ot this Institution toJSM. Mr. J. Johnston, who has a promising tenor voice, gave a very Interesting song recital on Monday afternoon with a program of ambitious selections. He was most successful In Schu bert’s “ By the Sea” and M Every Valley,” with tho recitative which precedes it from tho u Mes siah” of Handel, which were exceedingly well sung. Tho other selections showed conscien tious study and an excellent method. On Wednesday afternoon Mr. Fredrick Bos covitz gave a piano recital, opening with a fun tasie and sarabondc of Kirnberger. us arranged hy Carl Tauslg, which was especially interesting. The rest of the program was made up of a lot of little pieces for which Mr. Boscovitz appears to have such a predellction. His playing was hard ly up to his usual stunaurd. it being careless and uneven, and the tone of tho piano was Ircquent ly forced ton positive degree of unpleasantness. Miss Alice Maud Whitacre sang two numbers with charming grace and brilliancy. On Irlday afternoon Mr. Frank W. Taft, a young pupil of Mr. Eddy, gave an organ recital with tho following program: I. Toccata and Fugue in O minor Bach ~ Communion in G, op. 4, No. 1 Batiste J.

Whitney The numbers were well chosen, and served admirably to display the organist's technical ability as well us his skill in registration. Tho playing was throughout remarkably clear and well deflned, combining exceptional brilliancy and vigor with much steadiness. Mr. Taft’s Jf.Vi 0 * 1 IS excellent, and his pedal execution Is fully equal to his manipulation of the manuals. The rapid pedal passages In tho Hesse “ Varia brought out with great distinct ness, showing unusual talent for tho organ us a concert performer, while tho skill displayed In tbe\arious changes of registration throughout tho entire program served to strengthen tho good Impression produced. Miss Alma Bate, tho soprano, sang an aria from Mozart’s “Mar rlage of Figaro,” and the “Pravcr,” from I tif rC SCbQtz of Von w ebcr, with excel-' LOCAL MISCELLANY. Miss Eugenie Stocking, the young soprano, will give a song recital at Evanston bet oro Mn Mathews* class to-morrow evening. Tho German singing societies of Cleveland, not content with tho Chicago Siingcrfcst, bavo organized a Union concert in that city. Bischoff, who has turned up there, will sing In it. Mrs. Grace ililtz-Glcasou will sing a song re cital Wednesday evening before Mr. Mathews* school at Evanston, tho program of which will contain songs by Bach, Handel, Haydn, Schu *** Kubinstcin.

Miss Jeanie Herrick, of this city, has attained to. great popularity in Erie, Pa., where she is singing at the concerts of Mr. Roofs Normal Institute., Or the Institute Itselt the Erie Di.<- mtch says: “Not since the days of Theodore Thomas has the Opera-House contained such a .Aubcr .Wagner respcmsible for them, is and has been striving to pay out of her salary. She is now singing during this warm weather every night with the greatest forbearance and fortitude. Her devo tion to her mother is unparalleled, her every thought being centered in making life bright and happy for her mother. She will rest during a portion of the month of August In this city to gain strength, so needful for ber long win ter s work. Mrs. Julia Ward Howe Is reported by the Providence Press to be writing a comic opera. Maurice Strakosch will return with Emma Thursby to tho United States in the fall. Ho is now giving concerts in Sweden. Tho London n*orfd aptly describes Mr. George Hcnscbcl as “ tho best singer among musicians and tho best musician among singers.” Mmc. Gerster will arrive in Now Orleans in December. Mr. Max Strakosch will'open tho Trench Opera-Hcuso for a season of eight weeks. The remains of Henri Vieuxtemps are to be removed from Algiers to Verviors. his birth place, where a moaufhent Is to be erected to his memory. Fnbrini, tho nowtenorof the Abbott English Opera Company, will appear In oratorio during the season. He is mid to be excellent in “The Messiah,” “The Creation,” and “ Elijah.” • M. Ambroise Thcmas, it Is stated. Is anxious to produce his nsw opera, “ Franyoise di lli mlni,” but is uot satisfied with any of the so pranos who are available for tho principal rfllc.

Kellogg will also appear under his man agement in a few performances in Now Orleans and other cities. Another disappointment was suffered at Bor Majesty's on the 11th inst., when, instead of “Lohengrin,” a repetition of tho Baron Orczy’s “li Rlnncgato *’ bad to oe given. The audience was probably tho smallest ever assembled for an opera ut Her Majesty’s. At tho end of tho sec* ond act, during the ballet, there were exactly ninety-one people In the stalls, the orchestra outnumbering the people on that tloor of tho house. In short, no more disastrous failure than that of 44 11 Kinnegato” has been registered at tho Opera-House. ..W.T. Carleton Henry Peakes J. C. Peakes Mr, Falnvethor Walter Allen .Miss Adelaide Randall ....Miss Emma Eilsner The Boston Herald says: “Mr. George Uen echel has partially completed bis scheme of pro grams for the series of orchestral concerts un der bis direction and the patronage of Mr. H. L. Higginson. He has on his programs all the nine symphonies of Beethoven, two of Mozart, two ot Haydn, two of Schumann, one ot Mendels sohn, ono of Schubert, two ot Brahms, and ono of Rubinstein, beside a varied collection of overtures and pieces; and it is his intention to produce novelties at not less than fifteen of the concerts.” Herr Richter’s managers in London have quarreled, and tho result of the consequent split Is likely to be a now series of orchestral concerts next spring. The Richter season will take place, as usual, and the other set will prob ably be couductcd by Charles Halle, with Wil helmj os concert-master. Mr. Halle, who is a capital pianist, and whose Manchester orches tra has been esteemed tho best in England, is devoted rather to tho older masters, while Richter Is preeminently an exponent of Wag ner aud tho new school, so that tho concerts will doubtless bo strongly contrasted, though as both men are devoted admirers of Bcotboven there will also be no small rivalry between them, with the symphonies for a battle-ground.

Miss Lizzie Scan lan. of Chicgao, writes regard ing her musical studies in Italy; “I am exert ing myself to the utmost to prepare for my uebut next January, I wish to moke a real business and musical success,—not a mere news paper triumph.

XiITTA'S HISTORY, A Bloomington (III.) dispatch to the Cincinnati Gazelle tells tho following atorvof Litta'scareer: Much has been ■ said of lato in tho news papers concerning tho movements and engage montsof Mile. Litta, the famous, but ruthor ill-fated, prima donna, and in many instances extreme injustice has been done to the gilted songstress aua to ber intimate friends in Bloomington and Cleveland. Litta’s engage ment to Harry Cleveland, the well-known tenor, is now a well-known and undisputed fact, but the wedding will not take place until she Is re leased from a contract which she la in honor bound to fulfill to tho very letter. Litta was tho oldest daughter of a-very poor family, and when she commenced her operatic career, with very heavy debts bunging over her shoulders, It be came a matter of dire necessity that she mortgaged a bouse and lot presented to her by tho citizens of Bloomington soon alter her debut in Baris. To those strangers who aro yet unacquainted with-her trials and exertions to earn a comfortable living for herself and fam ily, besides tbc education of her brothers and sisters, since her return from Europe, we will give a few facts which will ouligbtun tho public and also place her in an en tirely different position In the mind of every one. Miss Litta has been under contract with Mr. John Andernes, of Cleveland, 0., for tho fiast five years, in which she was to give him mlf of her earnings during that space of time in return for tuition given her by him and tho money spent for her during her stay in Europe. This contract expires in August, when Litta will give her teacher a farewell benefit concert in Cleveland. In addition to this great strain ou her earn ings, she has been several times cheated out of her pay by numerous scheming, heartless man agers, who have no sympathy for her. It may bo truthfully said that if Litta had been fairly dealt with In her business affairs she could, iu deed, bo in easy circumstances now. Another thing is to bo considered. Her father, who died three years ago, left many debts and bills of longstanding, which Litta, although not at all MUSICAL NOTES. NEW MUSIC. A LEGEND.

Advice Tor ilio ITlayor. • To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune, Chicago, July 30.—1 would like to say In re gard to sidewalks, that the Mayor and Sidewalk Inspector should tako a walk around tho West Side, the Mayor to walk on one edge and tho In spector on the other. After they return, I would respectfully ask them to Inform the pub lic If any ot their lower limbs were broken, and if their shins were not very sore. 1 think If the Mayor will try the above he will not bo seen on the West Side again, unless when he intends to run for Governor of this State, as ho threatens. N. Tlio II:iy Fever. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune. Chicago, July 30.—There has boon much writ ten about the winter cholera, tho water cholera, and the small-pox which have been so prevalent during past months, but nothing about our summer disease, u hhy fever.” Will you In form ns through your paper if there have been any new discoveries In tho treatment of It? There are many physicians who claim they can euro the disease, but I havo failed to find one who could even relieve or In any way prevent the great suffering which wo are obliged to endure during tbo months of August, September, and October. I have aulfered from dilforcnt diseases: none, hoivever, bus ever equaled this. Sarah J. Holland. [The.hay-fever expert of Tub Tiuiiune au thorizes the statement that half a* dozen new fangled remedies havo been submitted to him, all warranted to cure. He will devote a portion of tho summer to trying them, and the remain der, as usual, to sneezing, sore eyes, asthma, and other incidentals of his disease.] Turkish Kxllc. To the Editor of The Chicago Thribune. Chicago, July 29.—1 n your issue of yesterday was a telegram from Constantinople saying that tho murderers of the late Sultan of Turkey had been sent to El Ucdjuz, Arabia, where they will remain in exile for life. Will you be kind enough to tell mo In your next Sunday issue whether tho above means close confinement in a building (prison) or do they have the privilege of going free around the town they are S"ent to. Just as they choose? Is it tho custom in those foreign countries to allow men exiled to some island to go around louse on tho island, or aro they put under close confinement in u prison? Yours respectfully. Inquirer. [EI Hcdjaz is that part of Arabia extending along tho lied Sou from the Gulf of Akabah southward, and includes within its boundaries tho Cities of Mecca and Medina. As a general thing these exiles aro allowed tho freedom of tho country tq which they are sent, but arc kept under reasonable surveillance to see that they do not attempt to escape from it. As to tbo second query, in some coses a person has tho freedom of tho entire island, in others is con fined to seme uarUcular city, and in others Is shut up in prison.] Tho Street-Swooping Nulnauce. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune. Chicago. July 30.—1 f iho writer Is not mis taken the panics—whoever they may bo—who have tho contract for-sweeping 1 the streets of tho city are bound by the conditions of the same to sprinkle previous to sweeping tho streets. Now, it is a notorious fact—which can bo vori- iled by storekeepers and citizens generally— that this condition 1 * Is cither wholly neg lected. as usually is tho case, or that the sprinkling is most imperfectly done, tho sprinkling apparatus of tho water wagon being so constructed that it sheds scarce ly any water, never throwing it outside tho wheel tracks of tho wagon, and tho wagon bc iug driven at a gallop once along tho street. Tho clouds of dust caused by imperfect sweep ing are not only disagreeable to passers on tho street but damaging to tho goods of those who have stores. One Clark street dealer told the writer that every sweeping injured his stock to tho amount of at least $lO. There is a petition in circulation which is being largely signed, and which will in due season bo presented to tho Mayor and Common Council, and it is to bo hoped that the nuisance will soon bo abated. Tlte Fire-Bugs’ Specious Pretexts. 7b the Editor of The Chicago Tribune . Chicago, July 30. allow mo the use of your columns to call attention, briefly, to the fact that, in view of tho statement that money bos been raised or subscribed for tho purpose pf repealing tho fire ordinance, there are persons who are willing to accept commissions predi cated on that possibility. It is not only said that a fund has been raised, bnt this writer has been approached for tho purpose of using his “ iniloo onco ” (whatever that mhy amount to) in tho same direction. We believe and know that cer tain Aldermen are totally beyond reproach, but when wo ’ porocive that somo of tho best of thorn have bad the suggestion mado that, under certain conditions, their property will be so overvalued that their wealth will bo doubled, what shall we say for the integrity of those ocher Aldermen who are engineering this fraud, many of whom aro apparently respect able? In point of fact, some of our most respectable Aldermen bavoeither been deceived with regard to this business, or else have allowed themselves to be lulled to sleep by tho specious pretextsorargumontsof theirpretended friends. A repeal of the tiro ordinance is one of tho worst circumstances that could occur to this city. Tiie Fire Ordinance—Sltall It Be Tam pered With? ' To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune. Chicago, July JO.—Nothing Is of more con sequence to tho prosperity of Chicago to-day than confidence—confidence in our ability to meet every engagement; confidence in our in tegrity, Its value cannot be overestimated. It was confidence in our National Government which brought interest down from C and 7 per cent to per cent, and thus saved us millions upon millions. - Confidence in our city will en able us to do the same thing with our $12,752,000 of funded debt, provided, always, we can main tain that confidence. To do this, wc must de termine ourselves to stand upon tho very High est plane of integrity and good faith. That Is something we cannot afford to tamper with. Our prosperity as a city depends upon our good faith. For tho five years last post wtfbave prospered as no other city has. Our population has in creased lOOtOOu. Our business bus increased more than 25 per cent. Elegant business struct ures have taken tho place of mean ones, and we now rank us one of the handsomest cities of modern times. For this wo are largely indebted to the building ordinance of June 15, 1875. It was enacted very opportunely. We had not tho money with which to rebuild. We must needs borrow. Wo could not borrow without confi dence. We could not inspire confidence without some guarantee that no more frame buildings should be erected within tho city limits. Every body understood that tho safety of buildings erected depended on that, and that capital would not venture without some such pledge of protection. Wo needed the capital, wo felt that wo could not do without it. We gave tho pledge in the shape of Unit or dinance. and capital was freely furnished. Un der its influence wo have advanced in material prosperity beyond all precedent. Do wc owe nothing to our pledge of good faith? Shall we turn round now and betray tho trust reposed in us? -• There is a law which is as indexible as the law of gravitation. Chicago cannot escape Its penal ties any m»>.c than an individual can. That law is, that if wo forfeit tho confidence reposed in us. we shall cease to be trusted, and capital will leave us for places where it can be secure. Are wo willing to betray our confidence? Is It hon est? Is it wise? Can wc afford it? Shall a few land-speculators hold our City Council in their grasp and pass the incendiary measures now before them? Cannot tho property-owner havesomosuy In this matter? Are all those splendid -nocks and buildings which are the pride of the city to bo put in jeopardy .without their owners’ protest being heeded? There never was a more dangerous measure before the Council, —never one fraught with more mischief. It can do no good. It is only evil, and as long as there is any chance of suc cess in regard to it, those iuccndiarlcs will bring it up again every year. | ills hoped that public indignation will bo so aroused its lo put an effectual veto on this ill advised scheme. .Antiikopos. Sunday Theatres. To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune . Chicago, July 29.— During last winter the question of the proper observance of Sunday was agitated with considerable vigor, and one point chlcily noted was tho Sunday theatre. Upon inquiry among tho managers the report ers found that they all kept their houses open because Ilavcrly did so, and it was argued that if be bad not established tho bad precedent they would never have done so sacrilegious a thing as to play sensational dramas on Sunday, Now If ilavcrly was tho cause ot tho Sabbatb-brcaklng among our the atrical managers, why, when Haverly closed bis theatre, did they not stop tho nefarious traliic and give their people one day’s rest? Again, Mr. Haverly assures us that ncversballblshouso be open for secular purposes ou Sunday. Well, wby is It that Managers Hamlin and Hooley still continue, and have made contracts to keep open their houses on Sunday all tho coining season, while Haverly has left Sunday out of every one of bis contracts? Manager McVicker has let bis bouse to a German company for tho season’s Sunday nights. Is It possible that our manag ers can appeal to tho respectable pecople of Chicago six days in the week nud to the disrep utable classes on tho seventh day? For no re spectable person would be guilty of at tending tho theatre on Sunday, thus depriving the actor of tho only rest no might have. In Now York, Boston, and Philadelphia no reputable theatre is kept open on Sunday. The law stops in for one reason, and tho man* agcrs are above It for another. Have we no law on this point? Docs Richard Hooley think he can ever draw the best people to his theatre by such proceedings? And John Hamlin, who is striving by every means to secure too patronage of decent people, when bis theatre has smudge of its one-time villainy still upon it, can he hope to ever gain the position be so longs for by keeping;an open resort for the lowest classes on Sunday.evening? James H. McVlckcr. tho veteran conservative manager of a quarter of century, be, too, stands in bis own light by this parsimonious manner of letting bis bouse to the German manager. And all these honorable men (?)mado Haverty-the scapegoat last winter. Now I would like to know what excuse they can pos sibly And-to escape tho Ignominy of popular disgust. No Haverly now atfords them an op portunity to creep out miserably and cry He does it. The Tihbcne, as tho champion of de cency. should not allow this cbanco to pass, but soundly flagellate tho ghouls of desecration. How to Prevent Smoko and Save Fuel, To the Editor o/ The Chicago Tribune, Chicago, July 29.—1 ahould llke to state to the public the result of my investigations os to how steam-boiler furnaces should be A red to secure the greatest economy of fuel, rapidity of pro- ducing steam, and the minimum of smoke. The process is a very simple one, and tho reasons for it perfectly comprehensible by any person of ordinary Intelligence. Tho way bring is gen erally done is to shovel In a mass of fresh coal, covering the grate-bars from end to end, and the result is immediately to cool down the boil ers, as may bo seen by watching the steam gauge, and tho fresh coal so spread upon the burning mass below at once begins to give off a large portion of its elements In tho form of dense smoke, which immediately Alls the fur nace, and rushes up the chimney. The smoke and gases thus driven off are a very essential part of the fuel, and so disposed of mean a wastage of from 20 to 40 per cent of the coal used. But what is tho remedy? It is this: Let tho coal bo fed in well down to tho front of the furnace and allowed to coke there before being pushed over the bed of glowingilre. This simple and easily practlcaole method of bring will alone, to a con siderable extent, abate tho smoko and economize tho fuel, and in combination with the Union Smoke-Consuming Company’s apparatus will produce results of tho most surprising character. Of course, such Armg os I bavo described re quire? more care than merely to heave in the fuel at haphazard, but it appears to me that a saving of from 10 to 20 per cent of coal, where the bills reach into the high thousands, to say nothing of tho abatement of on infernal nuisance, is a sufficient reason for insistunco upon proper and careful Aring, without which no furnace or smokc-cousummg appara tus can be properly operated. In the case of tho Union Smoke-Consuming Company’s device, while tho jets of do* steam mingled with a large volume ot oxygen are passing over u clear Are not one particle of smoko escapes even from tho fresh coal fed into tho front of the furnace, but if tho flro be completely covered with fresh coal the burner has no more cbanco to operate than it would bavo over a bed of ice. It is claimed for the device in question that tho mingled vol ume of air and dry steam passing over tho clear Arc Is reduced to its constituent gases, which arc among tho most inflammable of substances, and this claim appears to be well put in view of Dr. Holland’s recent experiments upon tho dls assoclation of water at a comparatively low temperature by chemical affinity in the presence of free carbon, and tho disassociation of water at a comparatively low temperature in tho presence of free carbon means tho most perfect combustion with the least expenditure of fuel, us the water itaell, re solved into Its costitiient gases, becomes at once a beat-producing agent and tho cause of per fect combustion of tho coal. These are readily demonstrable facts, and all parties interested ’would do well to give tfao mutter of the suppression of smoke and econ omy of fuel their earnest and unprejudiced at tention. however badly they may have been dis appointed by former experiments. The impos sible of yesterday Is the practical of to-day. T. V, B. Who Arc Yankees'l To the Editor of The ClUeago Tribune, Chicago, July 23.—1 see In The Tribune this morning an extract from the Sc. Louis Globe- Democrat, which says, in speaklmrof a successor to Judge Clifford: u But the New England peo ple will probably demand that a Yankee shall succeed u Yankee.” Now. I would like to ask. If an «■ exact definition can bo given, as to who is meant by the term Yankee. I am a native of iho State of New York, and we called any per sons from tho New England States Yankees; when I came West to live, many years ago, I was surprised to hear myself called a Yankee, and found that generally all from cast of Ohio were so designated. After the war I went South to reside, and found that all persons from north of tho Ohio Kiver were called Yankees; and in England all natives of the United States are known as Yankees, whether Northerners or Southerners. Anti-Dust. A few years ago, having 1 occasion to go to Stamford, Conn., to look at a dwelling-house which 1 wished to rent, the real-estate agent, while showing me around, took occasion to sav of one house on bis list that I probably would not like It, os a family of Yankees lived in the adjoining house. Says 1, 44 Yankees! Whom do you mean by that? 1 supposed that every native of Connecti cut was a Yankee, if there ever were any.’* 44 0 h, no.” he replied, “we are not Yankees. Yankees come from way down East In Maine.’* I said that I was glad at last to find-out where Yankees really came from. A few days afterwards I waal calling on a yduug married lady from Portland, Me., and, telling her or my experience, expressed ray gratification in finally making the acquaintance of a real Yankee, when, to my great surprise, sho indignantly denied being a Yankee. “ For Heaven’s sake,” said I, 44 do tell me whom you call Yankees, if you are not one?" 44 Why, Yankees arc those people who live down on the east coast of Maine, near New Brunswick," she responded. As I have never been able to interview a per son from the cast coast of Maine, X would bo very much gratified if you would answer the question, 44 Who are Yankees?" Very respect fully. Newton S. Otis. [The correspondent's illustrations of the vague use of the word 44 Yankee ” are very pat. The word, however, applies to all the inhabitants of the New England States, and was given to them at a time when Maine hardly had an exist ence. It is an Indian corruption of “English" or ‘ 4 Anglois," and drifted into use as a designa tion of the New Englanders at a pretty early day. It was first spoiled, probably. In its dis paraging sense by the" New Yorkers, who, owing to the early troubles between tho Dutch settlers of Now Amsterdam and the English on the Con necticut River, had a very low opinion of their friends to the East. So strong was this feeling, oven at a comparatively lute day, that Gouverncur Morris, In his will, provides that his son shall not attend Harvard or Yale because. If he did, bo would bo apt to learn there “those disagreeable traits and habits which distinguish the Yankee.” When tho Revolutionary War broke out the term 44 Yankee" was used by the Britishers to designate tho inhabitants of near ly all tho revolted colonics.—a natural applica tion of tho term, since New England was in many respects the head and front of tho rebell ion. Later on in tne history ol the country, tho use ot tho word 44 Yankee ” was extended, os the correspondent states, and it was employed by Southerners to mean pretty much anybody north of Mason and Dixou’s lino, and by Westerners to mean anybody east of the Alleghanics. Being used as much in a depreciatory sense, it became a little unpopular at home, especially among tho ultra-refined people, who disliked to call them selves “Yankees,” or admit that they were such. Sometimes it is employed even in New England in this contemptuous sense, where a man speaks of another who is a keen, shrewd, sharp, close fellow as a “regular Yankee,” or, in its intensified form, asa“regularConnecticut Yankee," very much in tho same way as a colored person, black as the ace ot clubs, will call another person as black os himself “a black nigger.” being so accustomed to hearing the term all around him as a word of reproach There are largo numbers of New En glanders, however, who have no ob jeetion to the word, and are perfectly willing to use it. It has been given as a name to many vessels, including some of the privat eersmen during the Revolution, and it was also the pec mime of one of our pet prize-fighters— “Yankee"Sullivan. It is also related that, once upon a time when Prince Edward, after wards the father of Queen Victoria, was travel ing from Boston to Montreal, ho stopped at a shoemaker s house In a Vermont village. Feel ing somewhat eluted, bo suddenly kissed tho shoemaker s wife, Observing as he did so, that she might recollect that she had had the honor of being kissed by an English Prince. Where upon the Indignant husband took the Prince by the collar and kicked him out of tho house, rc- f n !\ r s. ln^, .* inl ’. whca returned home, ho might tell his folks that he had been kicked by a Yan kee shoemaker.] • Tutor.
