" Tho now vaudeville theatre combino bas been the talk in various circles since the announcement Hirst appeared ln Hie pa? liers. So f??r as giving to Richmond the very highest class of vaudeville novelties th?? combination will prove of value to theatre-goers. Tlie. formation o? a circuit gives the management ilio opportunity o? Present? ing here higher-priced and higher-classed performers, because the circuit will per? mit of lowty salaries and shorter jumps, and result in a better class o? perform? ances. Manager Wells has always endeavored to place Iho best people here, but the Capacity of his house would not allow lhe bringing of some p. rform_rs here thai would otherwise be presented to the SU chin ond public. Under the new management, in willen both Managers Loath and Wells ?re in? terested, the theatre-goers here may ox I?:?ct to have, the best of the best in Vaudeville pieced here me-xt season. * . The coming of the Jeffries-Sharkoy pic? tures to the Academy next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, will probably tend to revive tile discussion ns io the merits of the decision In tho listtc encounter between Jeffries and Sharkey. The.=>o ?re the only real pictures of the flight, <?nd they give the entire" twenty-llw rounds. After they have been seen peo? ple wiil bo. able to decide for themselves whether ?Referee Suit's ? decision was a robbery or not. Tho pictures arc pro? nounced the best reproductions ever made. They aro said to be -exceedingly clear; there is none of that sudden jumplhg from one position to the other, and the ligures and details are depicted with fidelity. The pictures tell the. story, it is said, in a graphic and thrilling manner. They 'show when cither of the fighters or the refo.roo has anything to say?in protest or whatever may Iho ?-.?use?and the play of the muscles, feints, leads, jabs nnd counters arc all plainly portrayed. All ! the clinching, hugging, infighting and munoeuvering in the bronk-aways n.re tlic-ro. The pictures begin with the time the airan enter t he ring and continue l?> tho in si round- The faces of .some of th.? ?spectators ?t the ringside are. likewise clear. Bob Hllllard and George Consi dine nix? in plain view, and Martin Julian is a conspicuous ligure. Matinees will be given daily. ? . ? at thi?: i-noli. Manager Wells will present a strong bill of comedy and music at the Bijou this week. It is composed of acts that rank high in tho profession and that nre classe?! among the highest salaried head- j liners. Every ono on the bill is a new--; comer in vaudeville here, and their acts i Promise 10 be highly entertaining. ICO- j ward Hayes and Emily Lytton will be ? the head-liners, ancf us they have just retuuned to vaudeville after a year's ab? sence, their presence at the Bijou Is r.n ??ithej? card for the house. Hayes and Lytton are the highest salaried sketch team that lias p'.uy?;d at the Bijou. They will b?r seen in a funny farce, "A Wise Guy." It is a comedy play, and every lino Is original. The duo have been witii "A 'Wis?.? Guy" company during the sea? son of ISaS-MOO, and tho Eastern nnd WesK-rn press pralped the act highly. Reno Jind Richards, iho iirst of all <-omo?ly acrobatic acts, will constitute a number thai promises'to bo u laugh-mak? ing r?c?ud-br< _ker, and will perform feats that will probably astonish everybody, because of the miirvo'.lous originality. The. Throe Murray Brothers, premier Comedi' musical artists, wore groat nits at the. Grand .Opera S'ous?? In Washing? ton IhJu week. They perform on many musir?] iiistrum?M?'.s. and contribute song and comedy that is new and ?freshing. (Misses Cook?,? ??nd Clinton; tho famous *harp-.s!i?H>tcr.s. will exhibit their talents <ts revolver and rill?: oxpeo-ts. Manning aud !Ju Crow, one-legged horizontal bar ?sporte, -and Wood and Ray, comedy ?ketch artists, will be seen. The regular j?erformanees will be given all week. ?PIRATES OF* PENZANCE. All "musec-lovers are looking forward with great pleasure to Use cpming opera. Pirates of iPMisance. to be given Easter Monday and Tuesday at the Academy ot Music. The work of training the chorus le jiroereeiring famously, and recent re? hearsals demonstrate that it will be ex? ceptionally strong, whiie the beauty of the yotuie ladles will. lend an . irresistible TL* eaat? ia nearly completed, and con tains able and, even brilliant vocalists.

A.ilstingu sli csd tenorjfrom C*C?ew York lias beten engaged for the role of Frederick, while F'e>t. Munson, the baritono singer from Bos? ton, will take the iwrt of the l'irate King.

Paris Exposition theatre will accommo? date from 31.'.?00 to 15,000 people. "Romeo" is to be added to Blanche Walsh's repertoire. Calve fainted during a performance of "Carmen" in New Tork. Liili Lehmann and lier husband, Paul Kalisch, are to sing together next year in Wiesbaden; Marie Burroughs and Ethel Barry more will be among next season's new stars. .Jeihnstone Bennett will be the star fea? ture of tiie Empire A'audeville Company next season. It may not be wondered at if Sir Hen? ry carries home over SIOO.OOO in his pocket as' l[is individual prolit on tho season. B. Mclntosh appears to have made a solid hit-in the leading role of "Pudd'n h?Liad Wilson." at the California theatre, i*. P. Kith ha.*? secuv.Ml Prelli. the Jiu To_>e:in ventriloquist. He introduces a troupe of dogs maxie up in imitation of different circus ?mimais, whose vocal peculiarities Prclli imitates. For the first time since the beginning of her war with tho theatrical syndi? cate, Mrs. Fiske is to be seen in Cleve? land. The great actress will play in the armory of a military company, a sub? script ion sale guaranteeing her the usual receipts. SoVia. Scatlchi is now singing through the West at the head of her concert company. She is to sing next season in the vaudeville theatres, giving the gar? den sceno from "Faust," and an act from "Semiramide." Heinrich Sontlieim, who Is eighty years old and retired from the operatic stage moro than twenty-nvo years ago, reap? peared in Stuttgart some days ago and is said to retain great vocal strength and freshness. In vaudeville, they all tell me, it Is just as if ?two full shows t<x>k placs?. You wor? ry about it just the same; you must dress and un*dr*-*-s. and intake up and unmake just the same, and no real part of this day is ?your own.?Brooklyn Citizen. Jerome Sykes will be starred by Klaw & Kianger next season in a new opera which Reginald De Koven is writing. The title of t)io opera will 1*? "Foxy Quilkr," ?nd in plot and comedy situa? tions it will, in a manner, resemble Henry Clay Barnabee's Sheriff of Nottingham in "Robin Hood." and Sykes* "Foxy Quiller in "Tho Highwayman." . Edwin Stevens is to appear In tho vaude? ville houses. The other night at the Lanjbs Club, says Leander Richardson, Mr. Stevens greatly astonished his fellows by ??crformiiig ?most of the Ching Foo feats in -evening dress and entirely with? out the aid of the' long robes with which the Chinese necromancer is enabled to conceal his n>ai*upri*ernalia. As a manipu? lator of car?is, coins and other articles Stevens has ?few equals, and he will un? doubtedly he a strong feature of the con? tinuous performance houses while he re? mains in them. Next autumn ho will re? turn to the Frohman forces. ? "I flrst ?met Edwin Booth." eaid Henry Irving, "in Manchester, in 1SG0, when I was a youthful member of the stock company th?.*re, Ediwin Booth came as a stai, playing a Shakes]x*arean ?repertory. I l*dayed Polonius to his Hamlet. If I am not mistaken, and had. parts more or le? minor ln 'Richelieu* and Othello.' I don't recall that I attracted his atten? tion ln any marked degree. I thought him a great tragedian, and I never change<j my mind. It was ?four years before, that, however, that I ?met the first American player. It -was ?Charlotte Cushman. and slie ?was appearing as Meg Me-rrillee in 'Guy Mannerini;,' in m tour'of th? srovw Inces. My ?part required that I should sing as well as act." JosejiJi Jefferson has four sons "With a personal interest in ?the Jefferson Comedy Company, to say nothing of a very pret? ty daughter-in-law, who, under the name of [Blanche Bender, plays Meenie in "Rip Van AVinkfie." The elder o? the sons is Charles, who is the manager o? the com? pany. The next is Thomas, -who plays "Rip." He as forty-one years old. ac? cording to 'his own count, and he finds it ?very pleasant to be referred to by the affable critics as "the young -man." He is starting in as a youngster at the ago of iorty-one, and thirty years from now tiie old fellows of his ago will regard him as a young man at fifty. Then there is Joseph, Jr., the tallest and biggest of Uie boys. He Is about twenty-four, and is the husband of Blandi? Bender. AVilliam Wdriter, or AVillie. as everybody calls him, is 'the kid." He isn't over twenty-two, I and he. looks and acts like it. In. "The (Parish Priest" Daniel Sully thinks he has .a play for life. At least, that is tho statement a;ttributed to him by a Worcester (Mass.) interviewer, ?who, however, caught him in the dressing-room bonven Uie second aud third acts, .-while the applause ?was still ringing in his ears. After further enUiusias-iic em-amium of his ?new "play-vehicle, the genial Daniel delivered hitiiseif of some good, common sense talk on 'the subject of Irish char? acter acting. "I eletermined very early in my career," said he, "that there was room on the stage for a man who Avould play Irish parts naturally. I have managed to do it for twenty-tfiree years ?without using .Connamara 'whiskers Uiat the aver? age Irish comedian thinks ?necessary for his ?make-up. The Irishman .should de? pend on his wit and satire, on .taking ad? vantage of situations, as he does in na? ture, to make him enjoyable, and not on a lot of moneyshines, grimaces and wild caperings,? with a bunch of red whiskers thrown in to make, the comedy, for that is horse play. I will be elad when the stage "world realizas the fact Uiat. an Irishman should be pictured as he is and I assure you that in this play 1 feel that <tlse character of the? Parish (Priest is faithfully portrayed and will give the pub? lic at large an insight into Uie true char? acter of Uie Irish ?race which has never been accorded Uiiun by tho red-headed policnman or the monkey-faced -servant. Ihe Irish ?peonie ?are Uie leade^rs in all tho world to-day, from America around the world to England, and in all the posi? tions ?where trust and ohHity are re? quisites, Uie Irish blciod is in evi?lence.
