Stearin off, today, may be all riijhfc, but perhaps it would be just as well to obey the divine ic junction, "swear not all." President Roosevelt will shake hands today only with persons he knows. He does not propose to take tbjnces on cranks. Before the end of 1902 Richmond will have two railroad lined to Ch cik'o and electric lines connecting with all important local points. The year 1901 broke the record so far as prosperity in this country is con jerned. But 1902 is likely to do even better if providence continues to smile on us and the Republican party remains united. Beecher's little dog that backed up a tree two years after the squirrel was gone was an up-to-date animal compared with some of our neigh bars who are trying to keep up the impression that there is a small-pox scourajje in Richmond. Tfce candidate column is started today in the Palladium. The an nouncements ,will all be made in the u?ua! form, and at the prices hitherto chirged. Candidates will all be treated alike. It is a Republican race and the Palladium is a Repub lican paper. It is evident from a Dayton dis patch printed in the Palladium yesterday that the Hamilton, Eaton &" Richmond Traction company are in dbad earnest about coming here. It goes without saying that Rich- id wants the line and will giye La eoosTrurxioa ever? iruwuouic cu- i -couragement. It should - be well understrcd that fair treatment will be accorded every traction line that knocks at our doors. This should be a boom year for Richmond, and traction lines are justly expected to be the chief element in the booming. This is the era of traction line build ing nrdifwefail now to get our share R;chmond will be set back a h.l century. In bis speech at the Republican love feast Senator Fairbanks said: "When we have nominated our best men the victory is half won." Every Republican should paste that state ment in his hat. The only way to permanently preserve Republican rule is by nominating good men for tllee. Unworthy nominees may sometimes Le elected, but that does not prove that bad nominations are ssafe, even from a mere'party stand point. There is no scarcity of good timber in the Republican party and there is no excuse for bad nomina tious. The candidate who seeks a position i-e is unfit for forfeits the support of h:s friends, and embar rasses those w ho would be glad to do him any favor he deserves. Lodge Elections. RICHMOND LODtiE I.

There is more catarrh in this sec tion of the country than all other di seases put together.and until the last few years was supposed to be incur able. For a great many years doc tors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local renredies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment pronounced it incur able. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease. and there fore requires consaitutional treat ment. Hall's Catarrh Core, manu factured by F. J.

Mrs. Adelaide Thurston made her debut before Rcbmond audiences last evening. She is not a stranger here, but her otherappearances have been in minor roles, in which she showed a capacity which indicated a brilliant future for ber. It is not too much ?osay that she fulfilled a'l expectations last evening. She has fine personality, a mot expressive face, and without any affectation, in the opening and closing acts mad.? a picture that was pleasing and win some. In her diction she was almost too pronounced, too much of the pr -fessional reader or elocutionist; but these defects were almost lost in the many other charming points of her characterizations. She is easily a leading woman; and altogether charming. The play is strong and consistent and the company is a strong one, supplying excellent sup Iort. Mr. Otis Thayer as the old tanner; Mr. W. U. Tooker; Miss Minnie Allen; Fred C Hearn; Elea nor Sheldon; all were fully satisfying to all requirements of their prts. The staging is grand, the costumes are rich and elegant, and the enter tainment as a whole ranks with the season's best offerings. TOXIOHT. This afternoon and evening Managers Murray & Swisher have provided an excellent bill for their patrons in the Brothers Royer in 'Next Door". Nowadays theatregoers want cumulative interest as well as cast. We frequently find a notable cast with a very poor vehicle or vica versa. Howeyer, it is also a pleasure to note the exception as in the case of Brothers Royer in Archie Roy er's now famous creation, "Next Door" which will be seen at the Gennett for New Year's matinee acd evening program. From a lit erary view point the piece, as Rog ers Bros, would say never happened. But the interest is there and there is no time for an audience to be come apathetic. The bell rings and ; they are off in that mad race for supremacy in the greatest farce frolic ever entered in the ' peoples' choice" stake, "Next Door" dis tanced the competitive field before the ending of the icitial season and the grand stands, as it were, have ever been filled to witness its con tinued going. Consequently the mere announcement of the coming of the Brothers Royer in their twentieth century edition of "Next Doer" awakens t he dormant expecta tions in those who really enjoy a huge, hearty laugh. A HAPPY AFFAIR. , . , v . , . r - At ne ciose ot toe regular peta? rormaDce last eyenmg the Sweet Clover" company had completely captivated their audience, and as the curtain fell on the last act all kept their seats in response to a prtvious request from Mr. Claxton Wilstach, manager of the companj. Mr. Tooker then came forward and in a graceful manner started the program for the hour still remaining of the old year that they, the actors, far from home and familiar friends, without the privilege of returning, as could the audience,to their homes acd loved ones on this occasion, de sired to join with the audience in watching the advent of the New Yt ar. An impromptu program.overtures, songs, dancing, monologues were then given as follows: 1 Overture. 2 Miss Wood. 3 Mr. Hope. 4 Mr. Thayer. 3 -Mr. Johnson. 6 Miss Allen. 7 Mr, Hearn. 8 Miss Thurston. After this program, which was daintily rerdered, the company at exactly midnight came up to the footlights while the clock struck the hcur, led the audience in singing "Auld Lang Syne," supported by the orchestra. All joined in the sing ing and the curtain fell with the audi ecce on their feet cheering for the company amid calls of "Happy New Year" from all parts of the house. It was one of the most remarkable ex periences of the entire theatrical his tory of Richmond." Only the in visible barrier of j the footlights pre vented the audience and company from fraternizing like old friends and warm ones. It was plain to be seen that all felt exactly like it and that only .the conventionalities which neither side really knew how to break down prevented it. THE CASINO GIRL. Manager Samuel E- Rork, under whose personal direction the tour is being made, will present the original production of the Casino, and he guarantees a cast and ensemble of superior excellence. The story is a gossamer of sunny texture. The Casino girl is a young singer who deserts the stage for Cairo and a millinnery shop, to be discovered there by a young sweetheart, on whose account she fled the West Continent and the stage. In Cairo, comic opera robbers, sought eagerly by the police, turn suspicion from themselves to the young sweetheart of the erstwhile comedienne, who is arrstede and brought before a pasha, who in this extravaganza is a Ger man brewer who -won his title by the introduction of his beer into Egypt. The scenes pass in modern Cairo, the first offering a view of the main street of that now populous Egyp tian city, and the second in the pal- ace of a pasha. Fun, melody and comics are - blended with pagentry and spectacle in the usual liberal measures administered by Mr. Led erer and report says that it s pie torially beaut if uL Harry B. Smith is the autuor of the libretto aod Lud wig Englaader is the composer of the score. FOR HER SAKE. The tale, in brief, is that of a Rus sian prince of the blood and a beau tiful serf maiden, of opposition and intrigue on the part of the pruee's family and political skulduggery on the part of ooeof theLZir tnmious, an agent of the secret ixlice. The prince is reduced to the status of a Siberian exile, as is the serf girl of whom he becomes enamored. i The piece is credited with bciog rapid in action and of intense dramatic quality. The scenical efftcts are said to be elaborate and costly and true to the facts f life in the locali ties involved. The plav will be seen at the Gennett next Saturday mati nee and night. Just as a Fire Spreads in dry grass and weeds, so does an inflammation o' the throat the resoult of a cold go down into the sensitive air-pas-ares of the lungs. The cold, ltke the tire, should be promptly dealt with. Wbeo you begin cough, use Allen's Lung Baisam. It will certainly heal the sore throat and lungs and it may save you from consumption. . mm TH EATRE. MURRAY SWISHER, Leasees and Managers MONDAY.
