THEATRICAL COMMENT
This week the cobwebs will be swept
ont of the Los Angeles theater, and
from now on Manager Wyfttt will have
plenty of amusements for playgoers.
The dark reason has been long, but we
should all be duly thankful that it is
over.

Miss Blanche Walsh, daughter of
Fatty Walsh, the noted warden of the
noted Tombs prison in New York, by
telling the truth in a recent interview
in San Francisco about Oalifornia audi
ences and the most of California alleged
dramatic critics, has acquired more fame
than her ability as an actress was ever
likely to bring her. In eiib-tance, the
young woman said that Cahfornians
lacked education in art, a failing that is
ph«red by its newspaper dramatic writ
* r, ilie truth of the former part of her
assertion, as applied to !-o-> Angeles au
diences, is undeniable. The people here
are distrustful of their own judgment
and rarely patronize any performance
which has not had the seal of approval
piit on it by eastern fashionables.
This want of dramatic decision is,
however, not due tp any local stupidity
or incipacity to judge, but can be as
cribed to the fact that the Pacific coast
is not ft place of 'original production.
Plays *nd players here have been passed
on by two-thirds of tbe theater goers in
the country by the time they are seen
here, and their status definitely settled.
As the season is about to commence,
a word, anent that annoying feature of
theatricals here—the house claque—may
not be amiss. Tho attaches of a tneater
are entitled to their opinions, and many
of them are far better qualified to judge
a performer than many, perhaps, in the
audience, but the audience is there to
express its o'wri feelings, and not tov.iave
encores or prolonged hand clapping nnd
feet stamping inflicted upon it because
some of the ushers are mashed on the
eoubrette, or are to take sorue of the
chorus girls out to supper.
Everyone will be glad to learn that
Jessie Partlett Davis and Eugene
Cowles have reconciled their differences
with the Bostonians, and will continue
with that company, and everybody will
be equally sorry to learn tbat Camille
d'Arville has secured an engagement
elsewhere.
I like to tip winpers when I have a
cinch pointer, and I feel safe in aseert-
Ipg tbat Miss d'Arville will complete
tbe dethronement of Lillian Russell.
A few more theaters are needed in Loa
Angeles. When tbe Burbank is com
bleted there will be only five outside of
the beer hall concerns and dive. The
fact that only one theater can make
any money here should not be dispirit
ing to intending investors. Capitalists
can have lots of fun building a theater,
but if you have /t theater and no com
pany to put in it, your lot is not a happy
one, particularly as they do not sell very
well.

Bronson Howard's latest play, Aris
tocracy, will receive ita initial presenta
tion here at the Los Angeles theater.
Thursday evening. This comedy has
had a five months' run at Palmer's the
ater in New York, last season. This
production is under the direction of
Messrs. Al Hayman and Charlea Froh
man, and nothing has been spared in
the way of scenery, coßtumea and a rep;
resentative cast oi players to make it
the most conspicuous event of tlie pres-
Scene from A Httocracy,
ent dramatic year. This iB the Mrat play
from Bronson Howard's oen since She
nandoah. In Aristocracy, Mr. Howard
has deperted somewhat from the meth
ods he employed in The Henrietta,
Young Mra. Wintbrop, and Shenandoah.
He aoes not in this latest play present
things in expected ways, lie demon
etrates lub belief that an aristocratic
society really exists in Now York city,
sfnd his examples in the play denoted
by himself as American aristocrats are
a family of mingled Puritan and Knick
erbocker blood, and quite unexceptional
in culture and conduct.
They are a father, mother, son and
daughter, each a personification of good
breeding and high mindedneae. In con
trast with the four American
Mr. Howard has created lor his comedy
four specimena of old world aristo
cracy—principally ignoble—an Austrian
prince, a French duke, an English mar
|uis and an English earl. A third quar
tette of characters, purporting to be
typical, are newly rich Californiana,
consisting of 70-millionaire. his young
Wife, hie daughter and his son. Having
(bus prepared his set of illustrative in
dividuals, Mr. Howard plots a play for
the exhibition of their characteristics.
The enormously rich Californian, Beeing
that all his power oi money was not euf
ticient to place his family among the
New York aristocrats by direct procesi,
resolves to get »hem there by first bnying
recognition with the foreign aristocracy.
This scheme prove* practicable in the
end, but not before enough happens to
provide matter for a very interesting
and patriotic play. Mr. Howard's
positi.vo and emphatic view of the
pubjecl is that the foreign aristocracy
is morally rotten through and through ;
that our high-bred exclnsives are con
trastingly decent, and that even our
folks of rapid milltonari*m are just as
likely as not to be as good as they who
are bom rich.
Ethxal considerations has not led Mr.
Howard astray from the main purpose
of making a play that would engross
j and entertain intellectual people. The
Californian's seemingly pijnplo plan of
hiring a bankrupt English peer's Lon
don house, with tbe peer himself in
cluded, and thus i>n his family intro
duced into what he calls "not the best,"
"but the highest" English society, goes
smoothly on until his daughter is pre
sented at the queen's drawing room ; but
by this time the girl, throngh grief and
pique nt the false news of her American
lover's marriage, becomes the wife of
the despicable Austrian prince. The
Austrian titled scoundrel cares nothing
for his bride, bnt sets his heart upon
her young step-mother, and the scene in
the play in which he makes an assault
of love upon the woman, her resort to
her hriebaod for protection, a spirited
encounter between the husband and
the wife hae been pronounced the most
absorbing half hour of intensely dra
matic writing and acting that has ever
been eeen in any American play.
The cast, notably a strong one, in
cludes such popular and skillful artists
Messrs. Maurice Barrymore, Frederick
Bond, William Faversham, 8. Miller
Kent, Neil Warner, J. O. Buckstone,
Bruce Mcßea, H. W. Montgomery, the
Misses Blanche Walsh, Helen Tracy,
Mary Hampton and Maud White.

Though it has been four years since
Mr. Robert Mantel! was seen upon thia
coaet, he will be well remembered by
theater-goers by his interesting and
powerful portrayal of Monbare, in D'En
nery'e great romantic drama bearing
that title. No actor in the profession
has made more rapid strides toward the
pinnacle of the dramatic art than has
Robert Mantell during his fonr yeate of
absence from the coast. He hae added
to his repertoire, unj'l today he is pro
ducing no less than 12 romantic dramas
and Staakespearoan tragedies, and meet
ing with great favor in all. There is no
actor before tbe American public today
that Ib more enterprising and deter
mined that each of his productions shall
have the most complete and elaborate
representation. Not even Mr. Henry
Irvine's productions exceed those of Mr.
Mantell lh every artistic detail that goes
to make up a complete and satUf tctory
setting in which to display the art of hie
company. With him is carried every
thing, from trie most elaborate stage
settings to the smallest imperishable
prop that is used in the play. He could
go into a theater that did not possess a
scene and produce any of hie plays. OI
his work the ban Francisco Evening
I'oßt said: "Mr. Mantell's work is a
powerful pieoe of acting, made the
Stronger by his manly presence."
Mr. Mantell will be seen soon at the
Los Angeles theater.
Notes.
anvil
Undoubtedly John D. Hopkins, the
manager of the Tranß-Oceanic Specialty
company, has done more toward build
ing no the present popularity of vaude
ville and creating a veritable'craze in
that very interesting line of fin de eiecle
entertainment than any other theatrical
magnate in the country. In tbe past be
ran very heavy financial risks by bring
ing over the standard European vaude
ville attractions, but now he is reaping
a golden reward. Last season he
managed two of the representative
specialty companies of the country, the
Howard Athenenm Specialty company
and the Trans Oceanic?. This seaeon,
with true commercial- insight, Manager
Hopkins has carefully selected the
drawing features of both attractions and
wielded them into a perfect and
standard organization that is known
this season »s the Trans-Oceanic
Specialty company. In addition to
this, Mr. Hopkins has brought over
Irom Copenhagen, Denmark, one of the
most noted of present vaudeville attrac
tions abroad. It is tho Lars-Larsen
family of natural born acrobats, consist
ing of four women and one man. These
four beautiful girlß are the only mem
bers of their sex in the world who can
throw double somersaults that are both
startling and sensational. This will be
the first appearance America of this
very remarkahle family.
Mr. Lucius Henderson, whope unique
performance in the comedy-drama
Friends hRs added to his reputation as
an actor that of a piano virtuosp, ie
"pending his vacation at the beautiful
summer home of Mrs. F. W. Breed, on
the New England coast, near Lynn,
Maaa.
"How much docs it, cost, to run a
show?" repeated Manager Tom Davis,
of the firm of Litt & Davre,
"that depends. It varies about as
widely ac the coat of keeping a hotel.
Much depends upon the length of the
season, tho territory covered. Now
theie's the bare equipment of The Elu
sign. The Stowaway, Yon Yonson and
our latest, A Nutmeg Match," mused
the old-time circus man, "that cost
more than the annual salary of the
president of the United States. The
cost of tbe piledriver in the last named
play was aa much aa the salary of a
United Stateß senator. It takes money
to run any kind of a show—ready
money—and sometimes a good deal
of it."
D. B. Dewey of the Bostoniana was
right when he said that Jessie Bartlett
Davis and Eugene Cowles would remain
with that organization. It was simply
a question of money, as Mr. Davis ex
plained, and Camille D'Arville would in
all probability have remained with the
company if the management had felt
•that it was advisable to pay her $650 per
week-, which cum Bhe receives from E.
E. Rice in Venus. There is a possibility
that the Bostonians will visit this coast
next spring after all.

piece caught on the start. The company
will be headed next season by Thomas
E. Murray, so long identified with
Mark Murphy In Our Irish Visitors.
Mr. Murray will be supported by the
well-known soubrette, Ada. Bothner,
whose success as Teddy in Hoyt's A
Bunch of Keys placed her in the front
rank.
Harry B. Thearle of Chicago is one of
the liveliest and most efficient managers
in bis line of business. Mr. Thearle is
the agent of James Pain & Sons, the
great tire-works spectacle managers, and
has charge of their exhibitions in Chica
go. He finds time, however, to couduct
the tours of Bill Nye and A. P. Borbank,
The Chicago Lady Quartette, the Re
menyi cencerts and several other com
binations, inclnding John Thomas, the
humorist, and the new English Hand-
BeU Ringere.

order to attend the faneial, Mr. Brophy
accepted the services of Percy Hunting,

SLUGGER SOLLY SMITH.
UK WHITES TO BIS SISTER THAT
BK WILL, BEAT DIXON.
The Pog-llUtlo Career of the Young
Southern Callfornlan PngllUt Who
Kxpecta to be the Feather
weight Champion.
Solly Smith's coming fight with Dixon
at Coney island, September 24th, is ex
rifing the greatest possible interest in
Los Angeles, and he is going to have
very strong backing in the place of bis
nativity.
The promising young aspirant for the
world's feather weight championship
has many friends in the city, and one of
his Btauncheet supporters ia his hand
some yonng eieter, Misa Maud Pmith,
Mist Maud Smith.
who knows something about the noble
art of self defense herself. There is n
good deal of quiet talk amongst tbe
young women in a well-known dry goods
establishment about the ability of Miss
Smith to give them lessons in handling
the gloves. She is a decidedly fine
looking young woman, and her eyes be
come brighter when she talks abont
dolly and his victories.
She received a letter from him re
cently in which he expressed himself in
a sangnine manner about the Dixon
fight, saying that he feels confident he
will Win it. Nothing can now shake ber
faith in tbe oltimato outcome, and it is
really a charming sight to witness Mias
Maud's interest in her muscular young
brother.
In view of the coming fight a few
points about what Solly has done in his
brief career in the ring will be of in
terest.
Solly Smith.
Solly Smith waj born in Los Angeles
in 1871. His first professional contest
was with Kid Hogan, whom he fought a
30-rouad draw. He had Hqg&n
whipped when they put out the lights.
At that time he was only 16 years old.
He next beat young Manning in six
rounda, Billy Smith of Lis Angeles in
two rounda, fought a six-ronnd draw
with Joe Soto, whom he afterwards tried
to make a match with, and then offered
to atop in 10 rounds. He then beat
young Moore in four rounda, Pete Cum
mings lo one, Billy Jones in 13, George
Abbott in four. Dan Mahoney in 13, Dal
Hawkins in 13, and won the feather
weight championship of California.
He then beat Dan Daly in three
rounda, fought a 56-round draw with
George Sid'dons and defeated Johnny
Van Heest in 14 rounds.
Solly's last battle whs with Johnny
Griffin, the Baintree lad, who was so
ahxioua to fight Dixon, whom he
shopped in four rounds. His next
battle will be with George Dixon for the
championship featherweight of the
world, at Coney Island, September 25th,
for a $10,000 parse and $5000 a side
wager.
The Loa Angeles boy haß never yet
been whipped, and Dixon will have tbe
biggest fight of his life when he stands
before him.

of tha Contestant* and
Their Condition.
The Southern California Lawn Tennis
aeeociation championship to be held on
the Casino courts In Sinta Monica com
mencing tomorrow and lasting through
the week is the all-absorbing topic
among tennis devotees at the present
time.
The number of questions continually
asked concerning the various players
and their chancas indicate the wide
spread interest taken in the event,
which promises this year to eclipse any
former meeting.
R. P. Carter, the present champion,
will be called upon to defend his title
against the winner of the all-comers,
«nd speculation is rife as to who will be
his opponent. At present the chances
seem to favor one ot the following play
ers: Martin A. Chase of Riverside,
Harry N. stetson of San Francisco,
Frank Carter oi England, J. Edwin Hoy
of Santa Monica and W. M. Alexander
of Santa Barbara. Bumiller, the Los
Angelea champion, has not yet returned
from his eastern trip, and it is very
doubtful it he will be back in time to
participate. His absence will be greatly
felt, as he is one of the most expert
players in Southern California and a
general favorite with the spectators.
Martin A. Chase has improved very
much since last year, especially in his
volleying and his smashing is very good.
He is aa strong as ever at the base line,
and hia drives are played with the same
accuracy as formerly, although with
less frequency.
Stetson's entry will add great interest
to the event, as it will afford a chance
for comparison between the players of
the northern and southern sections of
the state. He plays a very steady game
and relict on lobbing to a great extent
against a volleyer. He is also strong in
aggressive methods, and when aobance
ie offered plays well at the net.
His close match with Driacoll, the
coast champion, at San Rafael last July,
is an evidence of his skill, and I shall
not be at all surprised to see him fac
ing R. P. Carter in the championship
round.
Frank Carter, who arrived several
days ago, is rapidly getting into his old
form, and it will take all the skill of
his opponents to prevent him from being
the challenger of the cop held by his
brother.
J. E. Hoy,, it will be remembered,
played Chase a close match at River
side last winter, and as he has shown
considerable improvement since then it
will be seen that he will cot be far from
the top. He is a little weak in volleyr
ing, but is a strong and reliable player
from the base line and it is not eaßy to
get a ball out of his reach.
W. M. Alexander is practicing hard at
the Casino, and will be. in his usual
good form. He is a good back court
player, but his strength lies in his vol
leying, in which respect he ia not ex
celled by anyone in the south. He is
also possessed of a good drop stroke
which is played effectively against a net
man.
Tne match between R. P. Carter and
the challenger wilL of course, be the
principal one t and it is safe to say that
it will be witnessed by one of the largest
audiences ever gathered together at a
similar eveqj. on this coast.
Tliis contest promises to be a very
close one, but I do not expect to see the
championship change hands as Carter is
playing stronger than ever. Stetson
would probably prove his most formida
ble opponent as his style of play is the
one most likely to puzzle Carter. Chase
may also be depended upon to render a
good account of himself in the event of
his being the man to face the present
•it mpion.
Tne doubles will also be hotly con
tested, as the entries will be unusually
strong. It ia generally considered that
the tirst prize lies between the Carter
and Chase brothers, bat if Stetson and
Hoy play together, as it is rumored, I
expect to see them playing in the final
at least, if not in the championship
ronnd.
The other teams, with the exception
of Alexander and Lester aud Acker and
Lillinsjston, have not been announced.
It is probable that Los Angeles will be
represented by Coßby and Routh, and
they will make a strong pair, but they
are hardly strong enough to win.
The ladies' event will attract ac much
interest as usual, although it is to be
regretted that .Miss Gilliland will not be
present. The contests between ber and
Misß Carter in past yearß have been
among the most interesting of the
tournaments, and as each has now de
feated the other on two occasions, a
fifth match would undoubtedly be very
close and exciting,
Miss Shoemaker has greatly improved
during the past year, and can be de
pended upon to make a good showing.
Hor match at Rodondo with Miss Carter
waß very close and was only won by a
few points.
Those that are certßin to enter tbe
mixed doubles are R. P. Carter and Miss
Carter, W. E. Lester and Miss Shoe
maker and Walter Coapv and Mrs. Hen
dricks. Martin A. Cbaeu and Miss
Grace Gilliland, the winners of last
year, will not enter, and, therefore, it
looks at present as thongh this event
will he taken by tbe Carters. There are
to be seven events in all, mz., open
singles, open doubles, open ladies'
singles, association ladies' doubles,
mixed doubleß and handicap singles, al
though tnere is some talk of substituting
association doubles for tbe last named
event. Fim and second prizes are of'
fered ior all tbe events except opan
singies, ooen doubles and association
singles, lor which challenge cups are
provided.
Joseph L. Daily, tbe professional, who
is acknowledged to be the foremost
player on the coast, has been engaged
to piay exhibition matches jiuring tbe
week, and the contests between hiiu and
R. P. Carter will doubtless be the most
skillful yet seen h> Southern California.
An exhibition double between Stetson
and Daily vs. R. P. Carter and M. A.
Chase would probably be the most inter
esting event that could be pospibly ar
ranged, and an effort win be made to
bring it about.

SEA BATHING.
Information for People Mow at vna
Heaalde.
A sea bath is to most persona exceed
ingly agreeable and refreshing, and,
when judiciously employed, a medicinal
agent of great value, but like all other
medicinal agents, it may be productive
of good or bad results, depending upon
tbe condition of the one who takes the
bath and hia manner of taking it. To
the convalescent, impatient for de
layed strength, to the inland dweller,
whose devotion to business pursuits or
housewifely cares has resulted in feeble
health and nervous bankruptcy, and to
all overworked in mind and body, no
measure, when discreetly used, so surely
brings vigor and rest an a sojourn at the
seashore nnd a daily plunge into the salt
water. Though not every one's experi
ence in sea bathing has been agreeable,
and perhaps to some it has proved posi
tively harmful, it can be asserted that
in nearly all such cases the unsatisfac
tory results are due to come indiscretion
of the bather or misconception of the
the principles that should guide one in
resorting to sea baths for sanitary
purposes. Sea bathing is a more
powerful tonic than the ordinary cold
bath. The stimulation of the cutaneous
Biirfnco by the dissolved salt, the
changing and cooler currents of air,
the impact of tbe waves upon the body,
and tbe mental effect of the unusual
surroundings, combine to impress tbe
system very forcibly. While such
conditions may have a depressing effect
upon one who is unaccustomed to them,
they are highly bracing and stimulating
to him who ia strong enough to make sea
bathing safe.
On entering the cold sea bath there is
a sense oi depression of greater or less
degree, depending upon the nervous
susceptibility of the bather and the de
gree of the temperature of the water be
low tbat of the body. The water looks
very alluring as one stands on tbe hot
sandy beach, but proves distressingly
cold if one advances slowly into it; the
skin becomes pale and shriveled, and
presently the familiar gooseskin appear
ance, cansed by a contraction of the
skin and consequent protrusion of the
hair follicles, spread over tbe body.
There is a general shivering, a blneness
of the lips, nose and extremities, as the
blood recedes from tho cutaneous ves
sels and masses about the internal or
gans. An Involuntary Bobbing breath
ing as the water rises to the chest marks
its impression upon the nervous system.
If the advance in the water continues,
or still qnicker, if a plunge into its
depth* be taken, the system in * few
seconds is aroused to meet and over
come these depressing effects and a
sense of exhilaration follows. The skin
now becomes ruddy, the whole body is
in a glow, the pulse is stronger, the
breathing is fall and easy, and body
and mind are invigorated.
This abrupt dilatation of tbe cutane
ous vessels, the stimulation of the
heart's action and restoration of tbe
body heat is the reaction which is
sought for in tbe therapeutic nae of the
eea bath. One or two more plunges can
now be taken, or two or three waves be
allowed to pass over one, and then all
the good that can be derived from tbe
bath has been acquired. It may be
prolonged for the sake of the pleasure
to be derived from sporting in tbe cool
water or from the'profit to be attained
in learning to swim,.but no further con
stitutional benefit will be secured by an
extension of the five or eight ntinutes
already passed in the water. If the
bath is further prolonged the bather
must be in the bast of condition, and
should exercise in swimming or other
wise, for the more hurried circulation of
the blood during the bath causes it to
cool rapidly am it comes to tbe surface,
the temperature of the whole body ia
soon lowered, and thdre follows • sec
ond contraction of the cutaneous vessels
and a ehiliness more protracted than the
first.—[Pierre S. Starr, M. D., in Worth
ington's Magazine.
THE MYERS MATTERS.
Tha Young Money Lender Has His Ca»e
Dlamlaaed.
Mr. Bennie Myers, who was arrested
some daya ago on a charge of swindling
a young Swede by means of selling him
a brass chain ior a gold one, had the
rase against him dismissed in Justice
Seaman's conrt on Friday. He returned
tbe $5 which had been obtained from tbe
Swede, and the case was dismissed. It
was stated that Myers' picture was in the
rogaes' gallery. This was an errdr. The
police had his picture and be was iden
tified by means of it, bat as he has not
been convicted it waa not placed in the
gallery. f
The result of the recent convention of
stage mechanics has been sharp and
sudden. The Union Square theater in
New York had a strike on hand last
week on account of tbe employment of
Providence workmen at %l lees per day -
than tho regular price. A similar action
was threatened at the Fourteenth-Street
theater.
