Mew York, Oct. 10.—A lire which, in ex
tent and destructiveness, finds a parallel
only In the great tires in the dry-goods dis
tricts In this city u few yours ago, broke out
this evening on Fourth uvenne, near the
lower month of Park avenue, and
directly opposit the Park Avenue
Hotel. Hoforo It was subdued it
had laid in ashes the Vanderbilt
street-car depot at Fourth avenue nml Thir
ty-second and Thirty-third streets, had de
stroyed the greater part of tho immense stor
age warehouse belonging to John 11. .Mor
rell, located on Fourth avenue ami Thirty
second street, and had Indicted considerable
damage by water ami dying sparks to a num
ber of the residences on Thirty-second and
Thirty-third streets.
THE DISTRICT DESTROYED
begins at Thirty-third street am! extends
over tho entire block ami about half way
through to Thirty-second street, and bounded
on too west by Fourth nvoifiio nml on the
east by Lexington avenue, thus taking in
the whole avenue (dock. It is estimated that
at' least 8:190,000 loss Is caused by
tho destruction of tho car stables and
about 81,500,000 by the burning of the stor
age warehouse, which was reported this
evening to contain over 5i,000,000 worth of
valuables. In addition to this tho furniture
and other contents of private residences
wore mined by the ilood of water which it
was necessary to use in tho elfort to quench
tlio llames, and this contributed to
SWELL THE TOTAL DAMAGE,
which will probably reach over 8:300,000.
'When the tire broke out a stilt gale was
Mowing from the northwest, and this, com
bined with an Insnllldent supply of water,
gave to the task of conquering tiio llames a
dimcnity that for a time was well-nigh insur
mountable. Chief ESI Hates superintended
tlio distribution of the forces of tho lire de
partment, but al one timo he was obliged to
stand by helpless and sco tho tiro gaining
upon him with ominous rapidity. It was
not until after a delay, which though short
was comparatively still long enough to per
mit the destruction of thousands of dollars’
worth of property, that tho full head of
water was turned on at tlio reservoir and tho
firemen hud at tliolr disposal nil the supply
that it Is possible to secure at any time.

was a mystery up to a Into hour tonight It
was said In one quarter Umt it luul Its origin
In cavelesness regarding smoking In the
stables, but as the rules prohibiting the prac
tleo were very stringent and strictly on
lorced, that explanation of the disaster
was not generally accepted. Other
theories were that an overturned
kerosene lamp hud ignited some
hay and that an explosion of gas had been
Instrumental In starting the llamcs. What
ever. however, may have been Urn origin of
the lire, It is known Hint It was at llrst dis
covered In tho middle of the Lexington ave
nue end of the stables, in a feed room located
directly over what is known as tho hospital
room, on the ground lloor. There was

This Impelling force fanned the Urn Into

tiered the elfiuts of tho liremen powerless to

the InanHlcluncy of Uve water-supply in the lire
hydrants was felt In live most disheartening
shape. It was almost like throwing water Into

upon the vest area of Itamo the Inmlmiuato
streams which came from tho hydrants. All
tbo available force of the lire depart
ment were an the spot, but they could
do nothing to save the building and
Its contents from destruction. With re
sistless force tbu Humes swept through
to the Fourth avenue front, and the constant
crash of falling timbers, the dull reverberat
ing thunder of fulling walls, with brilliant
(showers of sparks that were thrown every
now ami then high in the air like the out

from destruction. Meantime the sky became
painted with tho bright reduction of tho
Humes, which, with the sparks that shot ui>-
ward In countless profusion Into the clouds
of smoke that .rollon above tho burnlug build
ing, could be seen fur miles. Drawn by
curiosity people thronged to tho scene by
the thousands. Kvury means of tonveyiume
was culled Into requisition to accommodate
those who were eager to reach the burning
district. Thu Hnmes had been raging
auout half au hour only when the
high wind swept them over the
pop of Thirty-second street against
the walls of Morrell's storage warehouse on
Thirty-second street They bout steadily
against the windows, which could olfer llttlo

helped to aid their attack upon the higatorc.
uud while Us direction providentially shielded

created a strong current which carried tlio

directly over tho adjoining block, menacing
for a time all tlio houses at that snot. About
this time n Deputy Public Works Com
missioner having personally gone to the
reservoir, the full supply of water was
furnished, and tho lire was soon after
brought under control. The (Ire raged in the
warehouse, and threatened for a lime Its
total destruction. The iron doors separating
the two buildings which furm the storage
warehouse .-mumed, however, to place a fair
ly effectual slay to the further progress of
tho Itames in the building, and their path
toward tho Eomth avenue part was cut
off. The tiro burned with great tie ceness,
destroying a .vast deal of costly goods, and
then the falling of the front walls with crash
ing echoes and the tottering of the dividing
walls boro evidence of Um fact that the
llames had nothing more to devour, and that
the lire had readied the limit of its de

Hint at present the metropolis has not tho

with a dangerous outbreak of tire.
MU. JOHN IT, MOIIUBLL,
tlio owner of tho burned storage warehouse,
said that tlio only thing he could tell about
Ids own losses was that they were very large
and much more than tho insurance. "1
don’t know what I have lost,” said Mr. Mor
rell, "and 1 don’t know what amount
of my loss is covered by insur
ance. 1 have got to go through my
hooks before I can tell anything about it. I
don’t oven know whether I will ever he able
to lind the bonk. L am afraid nothing is
saved—not even tho books or tho safe.”
“ About a year ago,” Mr, Morrell continued,
" I reduced the amount of insurance on the
buildings one-half."
the warehouse occupied fifteen fuu,

■having a frontage on Fourth avenue of 100
feet, ami on Thirty-second street of Jtil,
Nearly In the centre of the big building
on the ground door were situated a number
of safety vaults, built of brick, iron, stone, and
steel, tuui idled witti valuable property. Thu
vaults were in the midst of the hottest ami
most destructive part of the lire, and were,
Air. Murrell supposed, eaten up by tho
dames. Tim building was about leu years
old. Ucgardlng the aggregate losses In the
storage warehouse, Mr. Morrell said he
was unable to make an estimate. There
were on his hooks between 12,1X10 and If*,ooo
names of persons who had property stored
in the building, amt nobody could say what
the goods were worth. "Among the de
positors," said Mr. Morrell, "were such men
usex-Gov. Hodman, William 11. Vanderbilt,
ux-Jmlgo Hilton, Abram S. Hewitt, .1. 11.
Parsons, nml some »t the bust families in all
tho principal cities of this country. There
were also a number of depositors living in
Europe.” Among those who hint snllered
from the lire was Mr. William 11. Vander
bdt, who had stored in the building
A PAINTING WHICH WAS VALUED AT 855,000.
31 r. Morrell did not know the title of tho
picture nor tho artist. Another loser was a
sister-in-law of Congressman Einstein,
who had 810,000 wortli of wedding
presents in one of the rooms. Con
gressman Abram 8. Hewitt had fur
niture worth 810,00 In the building, and a
Mr. Van Host lost 81,UK) worth of furnltnr
Mr. Morrell also remembered that 3. .
Schuyler Wheeler had a law library valued
at SSOU on storage there. 3lr. Hassell Huge
also hail Ids entire library stored there.
These were mere drops in the bucket com
pared to tho total loss of the thousands of
depositors.
3lr. Morrell said that when tho Ore broke
out he was In the warehouse with four
watchmen and twenty helpers. They did all
in their power to save tho building, and the
liremen did the best they could, but it was
impossible to prevent the spread Ingot Uie lire.

taken out of Uio burning stable were driven

five animals perished In tho liames. It was
rumored ut one time that three uum lost
their lives trying to rescue Uio horses, hut
the rumor lucked confirmation. On account
of the high wind prevailing tho firemen
abandoned all hope of saving the stables,
and by 0 they were a mass of ruins. To
combat the lire an extra supply of water was
turned Into tho Fast Side mains from the

Tho cause of tho explosion Is some
thing which no ouo has as yet boon

tho company, represented by Mr. Cullamm
himself, bus been experimenting In tho process
of boiling oil, and tbo building wherein yester

dently built for tbn express purpose. It Is a

detached from, tho mill. Tbu only contents of
tbo room weru tho apparatus used in tho process
of boiling, which consisted principally of u
brick-inclosed cylinder, flight foot long, two feet
in diameter, and made of east-iron
nno and one-half Inches thick. Tbu

Another pipe, leading to another tank,

by a pipe wlib tbo (inrt-mum)oned

by tbu heating of tho oil, Uy this arrangement
tuoru appeared to bo no danger of explosion,

Cr.kvci.ANi), Oct. 10,—Latest developments In

Democratic candidate tor Governor ns a states
man very much after tbo 1)111 Kngllsh order.
His friends and neighbors In Hpringllcld who
know tbo most about him tell some rather un
complimentary things of hlsorlvnto life. It Is
n pure ease of buying one’s sell Into public
prominence. Uverv one who knows anything
nbout the subject Is certain that tbo nomination
was a purchased affair. There are now no
speeches of tiny special consequence being
made ou tho Democratic side of tbo ease. Tho
candidate Is simply being run around tbo State
ns a sort of curiosity, and taken through tbo
groat shops In tho oltlus and introduced
to tho men who toil. It is said that
this latter operation inyt lu several instances
disgusted tbo smutted sous of toil who
buvo formerly voted tho Donmerutlo ticket, and
they have said that If tholr party has got so far
along ns to resort to such urlltlees as then* limy
arc through with It forever. It is one of (ho
happiest things In all creation (hut the Creator,
In making man,' bus, us u general thing, stumped
upon his countenance to some extent the char
acter within. Tills was decidedly the ease with
Rill Kngllsh, and Is more so with our Democrat
ic yearling, Mr. Rookwaltor. Mr. Ruokwaßcr's
friends mid neighbors lu Hprlngtluld say that ids
present activity and liberality Is exactly what
would be expected of him. Ho has never eon*
trlbutcd anything before to polities, but now
that ho Is personally interested of course he
would do exactly as bo la doing. A prominent
Democrat who has been In bis company of lute,
and who bus tried tbo weight of his valise, says
that bo carries something like a peek of
gold coin along with him all tho wbilo
for small change, and is drawing heavily
on bis bunk account by means of checks.
Tho wholo campaign Is being run on
tho mercenary plan. Commercial travelers paid
liberally for tholr time mid pains tire going in
all directions singing tbo glories of tho man
with tho barrel. Tho blowers and strikers and
tidu waiters all over tho Htnto seem to havo
plenty of money, and spend It freely, It Is such a
harvest as tbo Democratic workers have nut hud
before for years, and tbo old timers arc very
much dlssatistlod with It because they say no
man can over bo nominated again In tho Demo*
, crutloparty who does not have plenty of money;
that after tbo “workers*' have once become
accustomed to obtaining pay for tholr work
they will always demand it, and tho pride In
party and party success will perish from tbo
earth forever.
Hut I started out to toft something about what
Mr, Uookwaltor's neighbors havu lo say about
him. In thollrat place, it umy bo suit! that helms
never boon recognized by anybody ha a man for
any local trust or public enterprise. Hu has never
been elected to tm olllcoofaß much importance
as School Director. Ho has devoted his entire
life thus far to tho pushing forward of himself
In the most doltish wujr. Ho Is in favor of mon
archy, and has frequently expressed himself so.
Ho complains bitterly of tho rights which poor
men assume to themselves In this country, ami
Is very fond of Dukes ami Lords and tba heredi
tary titles which tbny possess.
Ills father-in-law mbit, up tho manufacturing
business with which he is connected, und the
only thing of muu which ho overdid was to
imttatu Hill English in tho eomdruetton of an
opera-house. When tho Lugmula Hotel was
being built, quite largely by subscriptions
among tbo pubiio-splrited people of Sprlnglield,
ho waited and refused to glvuiieuni mull the
thing was wuli under headway, and thou be set
to work and bought up systematically tbo stuck
at a low cents on tbo dollar.
When tho question of building tho Sprlugilold,
Jackson & Pomeroy Uallroau was under con
sideration, and every one felt that it was a mat
tor of peculiar interest to Sprliigileld ami
Clarke County, he said he didn't owe his county
anything, ana utterly refused to contribute a
dollar.
lint the thing concerning which tho neighbors
of Mr. Hookwaltor felt the most bitter towards
him for was his rotosultu subscribe last year
when the eommltteu on tho dvcorailun of
soldiers’ graves were around tor dollar sub
scriptions. Ho said emphatically Unit he would
not give u cent fur any snub purpose. Hu added
that ho looked upon the private soldier as a
man working for hire, and In his view of mut
turs tho soldier takes his elmuces, and if he Is
shut he must consider It one of tho outcomes of
his business.
About the sumo time tho people of Clarke
County were straining uvory nerve to raise
money to properly celebrate tho vietury of Gun.
George Huger* Clarke over the Indians. Citizen
ilooicwaltur, tbo wealthy uanUidulu for Gov
ernor, had no money to spond. Thu occasion
was so great that Gov. Poster and his staff were
present, und prominent guests from other pans
of tho country. On another occasion a public
library was being dedicated in town. Mr. Hook
waiter was quite solicitous that ho be brought
to tho front. Hu hinted that Im would like to he
Chairman of tho .meeting, hut far Home reason
he failed tu receive this honor, and afterwards
said that ha hud a cheek in his pocket for VI.UOU,
but, as he fulled to got tho Chairmanship, ha
would not pay anything.
Tho people who are tho maddest of any ut Mr.
llooKwalter’s actions aro tho Lutheran brethren
luHprlnglleld. Ho promised thorn fl.uon fora
bull if they would build a steeple tor their
church. They did tho bust thoy could towards
raising tho money, hut meanwhile tho üburuh
was struck by lightning and burned to tho
ground. Thu great man then rotused to pay
anything ut all, notwithstanding tho fuel that
his wife was a member In good standing in tho

Cui.umiius, 0.. Out. Hl.—Thu election which
takes place In Ohio to-morrow 1* for Governor,
i.iuutunnnt-Guvurnnr, Judge of tho Supremo
Court, Attorney-General, State Treasurer, and
member of the Heard of Public Works, as well
as candidates for the General Assembly, Thu
campaign bus been a remarkably quiet uuo on

a necessity, and was decided upon as soon as It
hceumu apparent that the veteran leaders of tho
party wore not in sympathy with tbo candi
date, Mr. John \Y, Itnokwatiur, who by
tho must corrupt moans known secured
bis mnulnuUon, und the morn able
und respected political orators emphatically de
clined to advocate his election do the stump.
Tho Democrats adopted tho tactics of Mr. Til
don, and early In tho summer had h well organ
ized body of agents working in his behalf among
the workshop, tho uoal-mlnes, und mills and
factories in every county In Ohio, Mr. Hook
waiter, however, made u fatal blunder In his
still-bunt campaign by trimming personally
over the State, holding public receptions lu some
of tbo lowest doggeries, mid dealing out
grog to tho minors and workingmen. Many
who hud been Inclined tu vutu
for tbo party’s candidate have turned
against him, and la the mining communities,'
where a vast amount of money has been placed,
tho feeling bus so changed that HepubUeau
Sains are assured. Tho lung Illness of President
ariluld deterred tho Hunuudeuns from opening
the campaign until the IMb of September, atm
hut three days was tho wurk on tho stump
prusouutod before the death of the President,
when nil appointments were withdrawn. Dur
ing tho past two weeks tho Uepublloana have
made an aggressive light In every school dis
trict In the statu. Their organization Is most
complete, and the fears entertained that there
would he a heavy falling off of the llupubllcun
vote have been dispelled.
Tbo prohibition party have a full Slate ticket
In tho held. Thu organization has not only been
sustained and supported by iho Democrats, but
has been mudo the Instrument to gain control
of the vote of tho Methodist ('burub. Tbo war
fare waged by this party of alleged reformers
bus been of tbo most vindictive character.
Nothing calculated to lujuro or prejudice tho
cause uf (he Hupubilcuit candidate, Uuv. Foster,
has been bold buck. Many engaged in tbo
. movement whose declaration was, •• Wo must
chastise Foster,” have no standing ut
home or InUuonco or character ahiosd. Bo enor
mous bad the abuses become taut those really
interested listhe prohibition cause abandoned
the organization, and arc free to denounce it as
a blackmailing organization. On the success
anticipated from this agency tho Democrats
based their calculations and rested their hopes

Cincinnati, 0., Oct. 10.—Tho lenders nf both
parties confess tonight that the result of tumor*
row’s election Is shrouded lu tlio greatest dmibt.
Nothing will HUrpriso thorn. There has b ton nn
campaign, and nothing to Indicate tho temper
of tho people ut largo. Tlioro is much activity,
hut no speculations. Tho I.iiieoln Club, the must
powerful political organization in tbo Stale. to*
day distributed IWO.OUO Republican tickets. Hitch
ticket was Inclosed lu mi envelope with iicireu*
lur from the club imnng tho recipient to not
fall to vote nor to recognlzo tbo lm*
purtnnen to tho eitusu of good government
that tho Ilcpublleiin ticket should bo
triumphantly elected. The circulars and tickets
thus Inclosed woru left tit every house lu tho
city. It was undoubtedly u good stroke. The
club lias tho public conibience to n rare degree,
and this appeal will bo considered by u largo
class of voters as a personal recognition, mm
will assist in removing tbo general apathy ns to
tbo result of tho election mid Insure tho easting
of agrea’er proportion or straight Republican
votes. The Dumoonits arc reiving mi u
supreme effort by tholr ward workers
during tho hottrs tho polls are open.
It is believed that they tiro plentifully
supplied with money, and that It will bo freely

tucky side of tho river, will be closely watched

lice from Mayor Means are that they shall in

of order. Nona of tbo eompllea*
lions mentioned In previous dispatches
Imvu been reduced, mid others have
arisen to mvatlfy tho situation. A report Is
current tonight to tbo effect that tho Jewish
vote will be very genurullv east against tho Re
publican ticket. Thu explanation of this is that
tho Jews have determined to revenge them
selves upon tho party for tbo defeat of Loßs
Heasongnod for tho nomination of Lieutenant*
fJovurnor before tbo Republican Convention.
It was Mr. Seasongond's second defeat for o
nomination for tbo Lloutumuit-Qovenmralilp.
nud on both occasions II is unite curtain Unit lm
received unfair treatment. It was urged
before tho convention that tho country pro*
duels would scratch any Jew who might bo
put up. Tbo convention rat down on Mr. Hea
sungood. mid nominated In bis stead a repre
sentative of one of tho precincts. Thu talk to
night is that tbo Jews have mildly determined
to revenge themselves for tho Insult to tholr
racu by golug against tho whom ticket. Tho
story enmes later, uud is probably an exaggera
tion, but It cannot bo denied that tho Jews have
Home eiittso for retaliation. Tbo Indications are
that tbo day will bo fair, which Is always
it very material advantage to tbo Re
publicans. In this city and county a
mixed ticket will bo elected, (lov. Foster
and tho other candidates on tho Htnto ticket will
probably receive a majority, but it does not
promise to bo as large ns that of two years ago.
Tho nows from (ho Htnto at largo is that tho
Prohibitionists uro much stronger than was
supposed, mid that (lov. Foster and Judge
Lnngwortb. the Republican candidate for tbo
Hupreme Court, will bo scratched by them. Tho

At.uanv. N. V., Dot. 10.—Tim gossip which
connects tho immo of Chlnf-Judge Kolgor, of
tho Court of Appeals, with the position of Secre
tary of tho Treasury In President Arthur's Cabi
net seems to have no foundation Intact, Thu
Judge presided over tho session of tho court this
mnrnlng, und has not been to Washington. Tun
TintiuNit reporter nskeu him this morning If he
bad beau tendered a position in the Cabinet. Ho
replied: •• I hnvo not neon (lon. Arthur since
tho month nf May last, nor have 1 had from or
with him any communication, either written or
oral, or by any other poison, on any subject
since that month."
Two special trains bearing 800 Tammany
braves ami 860 representatives or tlio county
Democracy arrived from Now X<>fK thlu after*
noon to explulti tho true Inwardness of Now
York affairs to tho rural delegates and force tho
claims of each organization, Each faction was
accompanied by a hand, and mndu n lino ap
pearance. Of tbo two, tho Kelly crowd were tho
mast respectable. John Kelly accompanied tho
delegation, of course, and has been tbo groat
lion of tho place. Since his arrival ho and
his followers had no hesitation in no*
iiouneiug that they had little ex
pectations of securing recognition, but
they desirod the country delegates to under
stand their position and lay tho lilumo where it
belonged. Sir. Kelly says that Tammany Hall
will Indorse tho ticket that may ho nominated,
and will hold a hig ratification meeting In thalr
hall, ovun If thoy are thrown out of tho conven
tion, hut on tho county ticket thoy will make n
Jluht and show tho State which organisation is
hanked by tho people of tho city. Tammany
Hall, thoy say, has many friends outside of Now
York, who will resent any slight to
tho hall, and express tboir disapproval by
bolting tho ticket which Tammany Hall reject
ed. Thu Deinocraliu ticket, according to tliolr
statements, will comedown to tho Harlem itivur
in a minority of lusjXN), which menus tbo elec
tion of tho Uopubllcun ticket by :ju,i)oo majority
at least. Tho TlUlon managers scout this idea,
mid say that any recognition of Kelly will drive
off more votes in tbo country than ho can con
trol In Now York. Of two evils, they must
choose tho lessor. Tammany talk of support
ing the ticket Hints few believers. With n sep
arate! county ticket In tho Hold swap
ping mid bargaining will bo a mailer
of course, mid tho State ticket
will ho suru to fare badly, lu tbo event of Kel
ly’s dismissal u bargain with tho JlepubJJcans in
inu metropolis Is looked upon us certain. Tho
dual talked of is to give Tammany Hall control
of tho Hoard of Aldermen and allow tho Hopub-
Means to elect tho District*Attorney mid give
thorn mnlurhilaid on tho Slate ticket. .Indued,
Kelly's ciiler motive in coming up hero seems to
bo to effect some bargain with tho
llomueratlu factions or tho Ilopubliuaus
to retain a share of tholr patronage.
The Tlldon managers laugh at tho boast that
Tammany Hull controls 60,000 votes. A county
tlckot would only receive hi,ooo votes, they say.
and Kelly would not bo nhlu to induce half of
that number to bolt tho Blato ticket, Thoy ar- i
ilrm that Kelly’s power In New York Is rapidly
diminishing, and, wltn an onipbaile sut-uauK
now, he will ceuso to be a factor of any political
Importance. •• Why," said tbo editor of the 1
.Hons tonight, " tomorrow evening Kelly will
bo u romliilseenoo." At nil events Kelly must
go. amt lie will have number opportunity at tho
pulls in November to manifest bis power.
Tbo discussion of tho New York City troubles
has been tbs absorbing (iimstmn so far, and tho
consideration of tho ticket has been thrust
raibor in Hie background. HlUl, candidates urn
thicker than they were lust night, and new
name* are constantly appearing. Thu backing
of must of tho men actively pressed is largely
local, uo one having obtained n command
ing loud over his competitors. Tbo Til
duo leaders aillrm that no slulo has burnt
funned, and no reliable predictions of the
composition of tbo tlckot cun ho mado whim
theruarosuubn croMl of aspirants. Thouitl
male selection will bo governed largely by
geographical considerations rutbor than per
sonal qunliilcattous. If tbo first names on tbo
ticket come from Hio western or middle sue*
Ileus of the Statu the Democratic strongholds
in tho oust and south will stand an excellent
chance of securing tho remaining places. The
determination now aeuins lu give the anil-
Tllden clement hut one plueo, that of Judge of
the Court of Appeals—tho only position having
no patronage. William C, Unger, a lawyer
uonneotud with tho old canal ring, will
probably secure this honor. For Temoornrv
Chairman, IK It. Hill, of Elmira, a strong Tllden
man, has been agreed. In Ib'T he tom tbo

the nntt-Tildun men lost bis bead, allowing that

Miss Mary Anderson was welcomed back to
tho scone of her earliest triumphs by n largo
.audience, for whoso entertainment sho pre
sented her version of Bhlot’s drama of “KvnOno,
or the Statue.” Tho lady received an cntbnsi
usllo greeting, and was honored with several tv
culls. Her Interpretation of tho part is tho
same today that it evor has been. Nature has
done far morn for this charming actress than
art. Her successes are won as tbo result of
natural talent, of inborn gonitis, rather than of
training and of hard study. Hho is
eminently classical In appearance, graceful
in notion, and gifted with n lloxlblo voloo
rich aud admirably modulated, [(or readings
are Intelligent, and tho vocal power at her
command apparently unlimited. Hho Is free
from rant, mid has tho accessary quality of per

Anderson’s performances, a rapid transition
trum extraordinary to ordinary, that Impairs
the etlcuilveoess of what sho does best. She
responds readily to tbo cllmnetrio demands, but
falls to be equally satisfactory ut otbor times.
Her merits are great—they might be grimier.
In ” Evmlnu” Miss Anderson is much mnro even
In her acting than In some other pur# which shu
has presented before, and In which sho will bu
seen during this engagement. In tbo hist act
she Is fully equal to tho requirements of tho
scone,which Is saying a groat ileal, fur tho claims
upon the ability and skill of tbo porfor mot* tiro
persistent. Bho also appears to advantage In
the sceno with Vlcenlto and C’clmimi, where sho
first hears of tho foul accusation made against
her honor. Tbo play is a sombre one. There Is
not a touch of humor In It. For that reason It
requires more than common talent to mnko it
a success. This Miss Anderson has anno,
and made tho part sho plays an attractive
one. Miss O'Neill was the original AV-tdac, mid
Mncready tbo llrst LwUiuleu. Naples is tbo
scene of tbo play. Lmimdco (It. h. Downing),
