DON GAESAR
GIVEN HERE.
New Brunswick and Metuchen
Talent Performed in Wilder
Music Hall.
ABOUT 200 PRESENT.
Seele’s Juvenile Dramatic Conmany
gave Dou Oaesar’s Rival last night in
Wilder Musio Hall. Those who took
part were New Brnnswicis and Me
tuchen amateurs and they suited Perth
Amboy. The play last night was c\
| cellent. The players nre all young
people, but they took their parts like
professionals. There were no mis
takes or hesitation in lines or breaks
in the acting.
The time of the play is during Holy
Week in Madrid at which time duell
ing is mane punishable by death. The
lay takes in a king’s passion for n
sy girl, the ambition of one of his
isters and latter adventures ot'
laesar, a wanderer who has just
_ed to his native citv. The king
.1 marry the gynsv girl and Dou
e, his minister, his queen. The
lay was well carried ont and the
itferent players were heartily
pplauded.
The show was good and deserved n
_'much larger house than it drew.
f About 200 people were present. The
last act was disturbed by the excite
ment occasioned by a young man be
ing* taken sick.

$10,000 was to be given to Mrs. Bryan
and $lo,000 invested for their three
children, who were to receive $7,000
each when Mr. Bryan thought it wise.
Tlie letter was opened by the court, but
was not read publicly.

mentioned in th<‘ will of the kite Philo
S. Bennett of I his city wits tints un
raveled in tin1 prolate court. \lr. Ben
iett, the testator, was a New York

the money would he allow either his

IIETHOIT, Mich.. Oct. 22— At the
Christian missionary convention here
H. U. Simpson of Lexington. K.v.. one
of a number of students in Kentucky
university who spent the summer in
evangelistic work in the Kentucky
mountains, made a strong plea for this
mountain work. lie declared that
great injustice had been done the Ken
tucky mountaineers by popular writers
and said, "It would be just as fair to
take it low browed thief or crook from
one of your back alleys and present
him as a representative of your citi
zenship as to hold the moonshiner up
as a typical Kentucky mountaineer.'’

BOSTON. Oct. 22. The new battle
ship Missouri proved herself the queen
of the setts in her class in a speed trial
trip over the ( ape Ann course with
weather conditions of a considerably
handicapping nature. Steaming over
a course of thirty-three nautical miles
and return, the battle ship made an
average speed of 18.05 knots per hour,
which, with tidal corrections greatly
in her favor, it is believed will advance
it to 18.22 knots, a now world's record
for battle ships.
