Last of "I'ncle Tom's Cabin" To Night. McFadden's Vnrle Tom's Cabin will be produced for the last time of the season at the Los Angeles Theater this evening. Burlesque Then and Now. The appearance of Miss Lydia Thomp son and her celebrated burlesque com pany at the Grand Opera House next week, recalls some of the roles in which she made her most notable successes. There is a vast deal of difference be tween the English burlesque of to-day and of a few years ago, and the differ ence extends in every direction. The burlesques themselves, that is to say, the librettas, bear but little resemblance to their predecessors, and the fashion in which they are staaed and costumed con stitutes almost a new departure. There are core differences to be observed in the matter of burlesque costumes than in anything else. Tbey are richer and more expensive than they used to be, while at the same time there is considerbly less of them : that is, a great deal less material is employedin the making of them. In Irion, Aladdin, The Forty Thieve* and the older burlesques the costumer was wont to use yards and yards of stuff in draping his figures, where somewhat different effects are now secured simply by the employment of scarfs and like devices. PALYPBO. The changes that have been made in the costumes of the burlesques, taken in con nection with the changes which have been made in the burlesques themselves, have resulted in what is practically a new form of entertainment. Burlesque writers of the present day go in for very much broader and bitrger effects. They do not elaborate small points as once they did. The fashion for puns has gone out almost altogether. London audiences will not accept them ; no more Ail! they on this continent. Old burlesques used to be stuffed with plays on words; line after line was written for the obvious purpose of working up what was then accepted as a witticism. But the day for such work is past, and with the departure of the laborious pun, the rhymed couplet of the old burlesque has also vanished. The first half of the week will be pre sented Penelope, by Ft. P. Stephens, and the music by F.dward Solomon, the author of Billee Taylor, etc., and the last half of the week will receive the first production on any stage of the newest and latest burlesque, Columbus. The company is numerous and have been endorsed by both press and public, and is credited with giving a charming entertainment. FIRE MATTERS. A Mew l ire Company Selected 1 o ler day. Tlie Fire Commissioners met yesterday afternoon in Mayor Bryson's office, a full board present. A communication was received from Dr. Bryant, asking that a fire hydrant on Pearl street, between Sixth and Seventh streets, be moved. The matter was referred to Chief Mori arty. It was then decided to recommend to the Council th t hydrants be placed on the corners of Patrick and Sichel and Patrick and Griffin streets. Mr. Hanley called attention to the insecure manner in which a building on I'pperMain street is being erected. The matter was referred to Chief Moriarty. The report of the Chief for 1888 was received and referred to the Council. A petition was received from the fore men of the different fire companies, ask ing that their salaries be raised $5. Mr. Hanly stated that their salaries had been raised that amount, and the Chief was instructed to add that amount to them on the next pay roll. Petitions for positions were received from H. J. F:vanß and S. Springer and were placed on file. The following were appointed to the new fire engine, located at the corner of Pine and Hope streets: Engineer, Hugh Heaney; driver, E. Spencer; hose-cart driver, M. Moriarty; foreman. W. M. Green; call men, P.* J. McYlahon, T. J. Collins, B, Springer.Walter Myers, Chas. Dwyer and S. A. Springer. The Board then adjourned. An trees«lon To Uur liar. Judge Frank F3. Guthrie has associated himself with the law firm of Wells, Van Dyke & Lee, taking the position in the firm which will be vacated by Judge Van Dyke's going on the bench. Judge Guthrie is one of the most distinguished members of the Pennsylvania bar. A late issue of the Nan Diegan contained the following concerning him: Frank Guthrie, one of the leading attorneys of the State of Pennsylvania, resident at Titusville, in that State, we had the pleasure of taking by the hand to-day. It has been thirteen years since the writer left Titusville for this coast, where the firm of Guthrie & Byles, at torneys, stood in the front rank of tbe State, and it is thus to-day. Mr. Guthrie is a leading Democrat of Pennsylvania, and is one of the best political orators in the United States. Chairman Brice, of the National Democratic Committee, en deavored to secure Mr. Guthrie's services in this campaign, but he desired to take \ a trip to California on a sight-seeing ex-1 pedition, and we are glad to know he is here, and will remain with us for at least a few days. A Lost Brother. Herman Knecht, of Paris, has written to Postmaster E. A. Preuss asking him . to ascertain wh.ther his brother Johann ' _____________________ Knecht is living in this city. Mr. Kneel t says that he heard from his brother up to a year ago, and that since that time he lias not been able to hear from or about him. He was in Southern Ca'i fornia at last accounts, and thoso who know anything about his present loca tion are requested to communicate with Postmaster Preuss. THE RACES. The Rest Da) '» Sport «f Winter Season. The prospect of a good day's sport drew a fair crowd to the Agricultural Park yesterday afternoon, and they were well repaid for their visit hy witnessing tho best sport of the week. Tho first event, a three-quarter dash, brought out two starters, Estrella and Consuelo, the latter being in receipt of thirteen pounds. They got away to a good start, E--trella in the lead, and they maintained this position all the way round, Oonfuelo being in difficulties entering the straight. He ran gamely under the whip but was unable to extend Baldwin's mare, who won easily by two lengths. The second event, 1 mile 100 yards and repeat, brought four competitors un der the starter's orders—Four Aces, Grisette, Dave Douglas and FOddy Smith. Prior to the first heat a good deal of money went into the pool box, Grisette being favorite, with F"our Aces selling on about equal term*. After one or two false starts they got awa\ on even terms, Douglas in the lead with Four Aces close up. Brown imme diately sent Grisette to the front and she made the running, with Four Aces at her heels, the others close up. Grisette led at the half by two lengths, and she kept tho lead until entering the stretch, were Four Aces, under the whip, began to close the gap. Half way up the stretch they were on even terms and Dave Douglas coming fast. A magnifi cent race home resulted in the victory of Four Aces by a head, Dave Douglas, three-quarters of a length off, third, Eddy Smith distanced. The crowd rallied around the pool box in quick order prior to the second heat, some anxious to hedge their bets and others anxious to get their money on tho winner of the last heat at any terras. Four Acea was a hot favorite, Dave Douglas h.ing a good second choice. They got away to a good start, Four Aces going to the front, but at the quarter Grisette took up the running and at the half led by two lengths, Douglas Second, Four Acea third. At the three-quarter pole they were bunched, but Giisetteled into the straight with Douglas on her flank. Half way up the straight Grisette fell back beaten, and Douglas coming on won easily by two lengths, Grisette a bad third. Dave Douglas was a good favorite for the third and final heat, and he justified the good opinion of his supporters by winning easily. The Consolation Race furnished a big surprise, as a rank outsider, Mr. Geo. L. Waring's Telephone, who has appeared on many occasious but unsuccessfully on the Los Angeles racetrack, beat his three opponents with a little to spare. RESULTS.
