Dainty and tuneful, "The School Girl," Is one of the most delightful musical plays that has visited Birmingham in a long time. Theatregoers who missed the performances of the piece at the Jefferson theatre yesterday afternoon and la»t night were indeed unfortunate, for it Is one of the most captivating musical comedies presented in recent years and la characterized by music that is at all times pretty—oftentimes ex quisite melody. It is to be regretted that "The School GiH" was so long in going on tour, but London and New York ap preciated its admirable qualities, so the south waited patiently until this sea son. An agreeable change from so many mu sical organizations that visit* the south was found in the company presenting “The Sohool Girl.” Vocal ability was not lacking end there were W'ell trained voices to render the music which Leslie Stuart wrote In his happiest vein. Miss Carrie Reynolds, as Lillian Leigh, not only sang well but imparted a most at tractive personality to the performance. She the graceful, dainty figure that one would wish the school girl to be. May belle Raymond, as the Mother Superior, also revealed a sweet voice and Gus Vaughan as Edgar Verney, sang his num bers with good effect. There were sev eral other pleasing singers in the com pany. wrhile the chorus showed far more vocal ability than one usually finds in that department of a musical show. All the song numbers w’ere sung de lightfully, the “Little Girl You’ll Do” and “Cosey Comer” will linger In the memory. The music as a whole was so enjoyable that it would be difficult to pick out numbers for special praise. The staging of the various songs, light ef fects and ensembles also contributed no little to their success. The comedy element was well present ed by Arthur Woolley, Harry Maxwell and Robert White, Jr. Mr. Woolley has a comical figure and sings well. He managed to be funny without Indulging In horse play. In fact the comedy was welcome for Its refinement and origi nality. The staging of “The School Girl” was complete and satisfying. Although the scenery was not new it was pretty and some handsome stage pictures were pre sented. Despite its English flavor, distinctly apparent in the Jokes, “The Sohool Girl” proved one of the most enjoyable offer ings that the Jefferson has had this sea son. From a -musical point of view it deserves special commendation, while its daintiness makes a suptie appeal to the atregoers who have tired of coarse bur lesque and chorus girls who cannot sing. “Robin Hood." “Robin Hood,” the offering for -this aft ernoon and tonight at the Jefferson, for I the past decade has held the record as the greatest of all operatic successes. The main reason is that it combines a popular story told in an inimitably hu morous way and the musical score by Reginald De Koven has not been equalled by composers of light opera In recent years. For over twenty years “Robin Hood” i has been the favorite opera In the reper toire of the Bostonians and up to the close of their season played to large re ceipts. When the Bostonians disbanded their organization recently, many opera companies tried to secure the stage rights of the opera, but it remained for The A born company to purchase the stage rights to “Robin Hood,” as well as the costumes and scenic equipment. The management of “Robin Hood” have en gaged such well known comic opera ar tists as the tenor, Harold Blake, who will be seen as Robert Earl of Hunt ington. who afterwards becomes Robin Hood, the notorious outlaw of early Eng lish history, Vi via Brew'ster, Karl Stall, Ethel Houston, Edward Metcalfe, Camp bell Donald, Agnes Stone, Meta Carson and others.

RECEIVER FOR THE MISSISSIPPI MILLS LARGEST COTTON MILLS IN SOUTH EMBARRASSED, BUT IT IS BELIEVED THEY WILL MEET ALL OBLIGATIONS. Jackson, Miss., January 16.—(Special.)— The Mississippi mills at Wesson, the , largest cotton mills In the south, have | gone Into hands of receiver, Thad B. | Lampton, ex-treasurer of Mississippi be ing named in that capacity by Federal Judge Niles this evening. This mill was Incorporated In 1871 by John T. Hardel, William Oliver. A. Walker, C. M. Valden, H. S. MeComb, A. M. West and D. D. Fullilove. The mill employs about 700, and It is estimated If properly managed should turn obit $70,000 worth per month. There Is bond ed debt of $300,000, but It Is believed here they will be able to meet all obliga tions, as the last year has been pros- , perous in spite of the high prices of cotton. The capitaJ stock was $100,000 and was later increased to $340,000 in 1875. Ed Richardson, the biggest planter in the world, purchased a controlling interest and managed the mills successfully till his death here twenty years ago. There are four mills in fact, the machinery consisting of 17,000 cotton spindles, !*"'0 wool, twenty-one sets wool cards, 8000 narrow' looms, dye house and all neces sary furnishings. PHILIPPINE'’BILL PASSED BY HOUSE (Continued from First Page) Casto and his little crew of men, women and children of the steamer Cherokee, stranded off the New Jersey coast. Steenerson Does Some Explaining. Mr. Steenerson of Minnesota obtained the floor on a question of personal privi lege. He had read from a Boston paper an article quoting President Roosevelt as saying to Mr. Steenerson on last Saturday that If he had known Mr. Steenerson was opposed to the Philippine tariff and state hood bills, he should not have appointed Mr. Steenerson’s man as receiver of the general land office at Crooketon, Minn. Mr. Steenerson first commented that if it were true the President nad used the language attributed to him it was a serious matter. “But,” he continued, “the article is false—no such language was ever uged by the President. (Republican applause). Nor was anything ever said by him In my hearing that could be susceptible of any such meaning.” Still more applause greeted this statement. Mr. Steenerson said the whole thing was not only false, but was ridiculous, be cause he did not hold the views on the bills as stated. He concluded by stating that his interview with the President was entirely pleasant. Taking up the Philippine bill for amend ment, Mr. Payne secured the adoption of the committee amendment when Mr. Wil liam Alden Smith sought recognition for ! 25 minutes. On Mr. Payne’s objection Mr. Smith retorted: “Why, sir, in my twelve years’ service in this House I have not occupied the floor as long as the gentleman held it in opening the debate on this bill. Is Given Twenty Minutes. Mr. Smith was given twenty minutes 1 on the statement that he did not alto- 1 gether hold the views of the opponents of the bill. Mr. Smith contended that the bill would not only not assist the Philippines but would be detrimental to them. He ex plained this by saying that Hong Kong was the principal market for Philippine sugar and that by reducing the duty this market would be lost by operation of the Brussels’ convention excluding bounty fed sugars from European coun tries or their dependencies. Mr. Smith offered an amendment making the duty on sugar 60 per cent of tJho Dingley rate, Instead of 25 per cent, as provided in i the bill. It was defeated, 73 to 197. An amendment denning the purpose or the Philippines to be to fit the islands for self-government, and to give them Independence, when they have reached the proper state, was offered by Mr. McCall of Massachusetts. Mr. Payne at once raised the point of order that the amendment was not ger mane to the bill. Speaking to this, Mr. McCall said it was fihe same proposition that prevailed with reference to Cuba. He believed the Unit ed States had pursued the policy of "drift” long enough. It was our duty under the treaty of peace between the United States and Spain to declare our Intention with reference to the Phllltp pinos. Chairman Olmstead ruled the amend ment was not In order, supporting the ruling by a long line of precedents. Mr. McCall appealed from the decision of the chair. Pending a vote on the appeal, Mr. Underwood of Alabama, made a plea for the amendment. 'The decision of the chair was sus tained by a rising vote of 198 to 123. Mr. McCall. Hoar and Fordney of Michigan, being the only republicans voting to sus tain the appeal. The text of tue McCall amendment is as follows: McCall’s Amendment. “And, provided further, that nothing herein contained shall be construed to mean that it Is the purpose of the Con gress that the United States should perma nently retain sovereignty over the Phil ippines, but it Is thereby solemnly de clared to be the settled purpose of the Congress to fit the people of the said islands for self-government at the earliest practical moment, and when that result shall have been accomplished, to leave the government and control of the said Islands to the people thereof, to the end that they shall be recognised by the United States as a free and Independent nation, as was done In the case of Cuba” Mr. Fordney offered an amendment limiting to 21),000 tons of sugar the amount that can come Into this country from the Philippines In any one year, all in excess of that amount to pay the regular tariff on sugar. As to tobacco the amend ment provides that in any one year fifty million cigars. 300,000 pounds of wrap per leaf, and three million pounds of tiller leaf shall come In free. Twenty five per cent of the Dlngley rates are to apply to an additional amount as follows: 5 f “ALABAMA’S LEADING -HOUSEFU RNISHERS."

Mr. Fordney and Mr. Cassell of Penn sylvania, spoke for the adoption of this amendment and Mr. Payne opposed it. Opposition was made by Mr. Longworth of Ohio, on the ground that It was of fering prosperity to the Filipinos with a string to it. Criticising the expedition to the Philippines last summer, partici pated in by members of Congress, Mr. Hogg of Colorado said it seemed to him it had cost the government JlO.OoO, Just the amount the President's Panama canal commission had oosWto inform the American people of the administration of affairs there. He referred to the account of the trip by Colonel Edwards. It showed that they visited a certain place and there was a parade, a dinner and a dance. They visited another place and there was another parade, another din ner. nother dance. He was surprised that members had secured so much infor mation. On endeavoring to reply, Mr. Payne was laughed at in admitting the hospitality of the Filipinos and the fre quent "banquets." However he said time for full hearing was had. The vote on the Fordney amendment was understood to embrace the full strength of the opposition to the bill. On rising vote 88 members voted for the amendment and 128 against it. An amendment levying a duty of 26 per cent of the Dingley tariff on rice from the Philippines was offered by Mr. Puio of Louisiana and accepted by Mr. Payne. Before this amendment was voted cm, a substitute was offered by Mr. Parker, applying the 25 per cent rate to all articles from the Philippines ex cept hemp, already on the free list. The vote taken on Mr. Pujo's amendment re sulted in sixty-fOur affirmative and fifty negative votes, the amendment being adopted. Mr. Parker’s amendment was defeated. An amendment by Mr. Slayden of Texas was ruled out of order because it de clared the hill should not be held to mean that the United States intends to incor porate the inhabitants of the Philippines into citizenship of the United States in order to retain the islands permanently, hut that it is our intention to establish a suitable government there to prepare their people for Independence. Mr. Pou of North Carolina presented an amendment providing that whenever It shall be ascertained by the President that any article manufactured in the United States is sold abroad for less than at home the President shall have power to reduce the import duty on the particular article to adjust the amount of advantage given the foreign buyer. The amendment went out on a point of order. Williams Offers Suggestion. The minority leader, Mr. Williams, no ticing a "lucid Interval on the part of the administration and the party in pow er,” offered an amendment putting sugar and tobacco from the Philippines on the free list He twitted the republican op ponents of the bill wltti having "weak knees" because they had just refused to support Mr. McCall s amendment to "cut loose" from the Philippines. Mr. Payne thanked Mr. Williams, but ideclared Ills help was not needed in per fecting the bill. Champ Clark declared he had a most pertinent question to ask. "Hoes the gentleman think he can pass this bill without our help?” •T consider that question very imper tinent,” was Mr. Payne's answer, much to the amusement of the democratic side. The williams amendment was defeat ed, the House dividing on party lines—68 to’170. Mr. Mann of Illinois secured the adop tion of an amendment providing that tariff and internal revenue collections shall go directly into the Philippine treas ury only until April 31, 1900. An amendment cutting off *2.50 a ton of the differential on refined sugar and leaving *2.80 of the differential was of fered by Mr, Clark of Missouri. Mr. Payne made a point of order against the amendment. Opportunity for Republicans. Mr. Clark said here was an opportunity for all those republicans who had de nounced the sugar trust to back up their words. "If you vote against this amend ment," he continued, "forever and eter nally hold your peace about the extor tions of the sugar trust." His amendment would reduce the differ ential yearly to the total of 56,917,095. Mr. Williams of Mississippi urged the republicans to follow the precedent made on the Cuban reciprocity bill when the House voted to lift the whole differential on refined sugar. The differential fight was reviewed by Mr. Payne with the conclusion that the republicans who voted with the demo crats at that time were "stampeded.” » Addressing himself to his republican col leagues, Mr. Payne declared: "You may follow him (Mr. Williams) to your political graves. There is no law to prevent It." Mr. Mondell of Wyoming said there was a number of republicans who desired to vote on the differential amendment, and hoped the chair would rule that it was germane to the bill. In ruling Mr. Olmstead cited many pre cedents to sustain his position that the amendment was not in order. Appeals From Chair’s Decision. Mr. Clark appealed from the decision of the chair and on a rising vote the de cision was sustained, 220 to 120, not a re publican voting with the democrats. Ap plause followed the vote when Mr. Wil liams exclaimed: "Having succeeded in reuniting the re publican party (long republican applause* which is always the result of an attack on the sugar trust (prolonged democratic applause) I will now offer another amend ment. Mr. Williams gave way to Mr. Sullivan of Massachusetts, who vainly sought to amend the bill so that articles manufac tured or yet to be manufactured, might be reshipped between the Philippines, the United States and "its territorial posses sions." The committee of the whole then rose and the bill was reported to the House. The democratic substitute bill providing for Immediate free trade with the Phil ippines was offered after the amendments to the bill had been agreed to in the House. Mr. Williams was given three minutes to explain the substitute, the time he asked, after which, upon his demand, a roll call was secured on the substitute bill. The democratic substitute was defeated 231 to 106. Messrs. Clark and Lamar of Florida, were the only democrats to vote against the substitute. A roll call on the passage of the bill was then demanded by Mr. Mondell. The roll call on this re sulted In 258 yeas and 61 nays, with seven answering present. The republicans voting against the bill were: Adams of Wisconsin: Bishop, Bonynge. Brooks of Colorado: Brown and Camp bell of Ohio; Cassell, Darragh, Davison and Davis of Minnesota; Dixon of Mon tana: Dovener, Dresser. Driscoll. Durwell, Elfassett, Fordney. Frances and Gardner of Michigan; Gillette of California; Goe bel, Gronna, Hayes and Henry of Con necticut; Higgins. Hogg and Howell of Utah; Jenkins, Keifer, Kinkaird, Know land.

Coal Men Will See Him as “Repre sentative of the Miners.” Philadelphia, January 16.—The first definite announcement concerning the attitude of the big coal corporations regarding the request of President Mitchell of the United Mine Workers of America for a conference was made today by E. R Thomas, presi dent of the ljehigh Valley Railroad company, who admitted that he had agreed to meet Mr. Mitchell in con ference as the representative of the miners, but not of the Miners’ union.
