THEATRICAL COMMENT London, Dec. I.—[Copyrighted by the Associated Freßß. ] —The theatrical bar ometer now Btands at "set fair" in many of the theaters, and many of the con cert mßnagers report the tame tales of eucoeßS. Rooghly apeaking, all the im portant new days of the season have turned out well. The New Woman, Mr. Carr'e first great money success, bad its one-hun dredth performance at the Comedy theater on Thursday, and on Monday last The Wife of Divea, by 8. X. Courte, at the Opera Comique, restored Olga Brandon to the London boardß in a fairly strong play which scored a suc cess. Rebellious Susan and John o' Preamß have beaten the Criterion and Hay market records. At the Drury Lane and at tbe Adelphi a big business has already been done with The Derby Agnes and the Fatal Card, while at tbe Globe and at the Terry, with Charley's Aunt and Little Christopher Columbus, full houses are reported nightly. Tbe Gaiety Girl is running from its second into its third year, and Harry Dam'a The Shop Girl has pulled up since its first performance and ia doing nicely. Sir Augustus Harris has definitely de* cided to transfer The Derby Winner to the Frincess on boxing night. A novelty has been beard in connec tion with tbe Lloyds. It ia a common saying that any risk will be gnarded against there "if you will only pay tbe premium." Concert insurance, how ever, must be a new departure. Some gentlemen have been organizing a charity concert, and being desirous of obtaining a mini mam sum of $500, applied to Lloyds underwriters to insure them in that amount. Froper inquiries were made, the attractive powerß of the art ists engaged were considered, and the risk has been accepted at five guineas. It was clearly a matter within tbe con trol of the underwriters and theirfriends. Another risk, tbe insurance of an artist against illness against his forthcoming tour—fixing the aum to be allowed for every night on nonappearance, has been declined on tbe ground that "the indis position" of artists needs no encour agement. Lewis Waller and H, 11. Morrell will open tbeir season at the tiny market as soon as Mr. Tree Bhall have departed with a new comedy by Oscar Wilde, aa yet linohrißtfmeH, for wbicb have been engaged Alfred bishop, (Jharles Brook enfield, Charles Hawtree and Mmes. Fanny Brough, Maude Millet, Florence West, Vale Featberstone and Julia Neil son. Tbe Moore & Burgess minstrels, after SO years' adherence to the rule of not allowing a female to take part in their performances, have at last succumbed to the all-permeating influence of the hour. In G. K. Sim's Yaller Girl, which will be tbe Chriatmas novelty at tbe St. James hnt), a woman will have a part, and a good part too. Private and Confidential is the title of a new farcical comedy by Messrs' Lor raine and Sydney Bowkett, which is promised at a West End theater before the end of the year. During the run of Eastward Ho at the Opera Comique, a series of matinees of children's extravaganza, by Charles Newton, will be given. When Ellatine Ten .s leaves the oaat of Hia Excellency, her part of There Nevin goes to Ada.lenour. There was not an unoccupied Beat in Albert hall on Wednesday laat upon the occaaion of Adeiina Patti'e first appear ance before tbe public thia season. Tbe diva, who wore mourning, looked well and sang with ber usual success. .Sir Augustus Harris opened his an nual series of fancy dress balls at Cov ent garden last evening. There was a gorge .us kaleidoscopic scene; tbe bouse waa radiant with parti-colored draper ies, flowers, lights, views of Monte Carlo, etc. ; tbe occasion called forth an im mense crush from Bohemian London. The new violin contero attributed to Haydn, which will be performed for the first time in public at the Crystal palace today, by llerr Popper, was scored by himself last summer. The solo part wae presented to him by a rich amateur while he was a celloist in the Vienna opera orchestra about live years ago, but neither the Bcore nor the parts could be discovered. When (ieot retires from the Theater Francaia today he takes what is consid ered equivalent to $80,000, in addition to a lile pension of $2200. Considering the very highest rank among comedians to whioh Geot has attained after 30 years' work on a salary far smaller than he could have obtained in the open mar ket, his fortune does not seem remark able. LOCAL THEATRICAL MATTERS. Mr. Robert Downing bas had a moßt bappy engagement in California, and particularly in Los Angeles. Artistically a success, for he has greatly pleased the audiences he has had, and the critics have had very unqualified words of praise for him. It wae his firet visit here, but he was booked for several sea sons ahead with Manager Wyatt. Mr. Downing is a well to do man, and therefore far from dependent on the re turns from hie acting for his welfare, but it is pleasant to know that he finds bis vocation very profitable. He is a yonng man and may be expected to go far—if he would only train. Jf be weighed 30 pounds lees he would make an ideal Don Caesar de Bazan. A tragedian is like a coinio opera singer in one respect— neither tan afford to grow fat. Eugenic Blair, Mr. Downing's charm ing wife, repeated hor success of six years ago. She is one of tbe moat attractive women of the stage ; as Vir ginia no sweeter face can be imagined ; in ber part of Neodamia in The Glad iator she was equally attractive. The next builder of a theater in tbis I city should provide all facilities for beating. In tbe winter, when there is a I suspicion of frost in the air, the houses , havo lo be deprived of ventilation to keep them at all comfortable, a state of I things that is neither comfortable nor calculated to add to the esthetic enjoy ment of the audience. Announcements. The most interesting of all Dickens' characters is tbe school boy wbo will appear at the Lot Angeles theater this week. Everybody knows him; in fact, every man has been there himself. Tbe great play which is having so much suc cess in New York, London and other great cities is called The New Boy. It is the sensation of the theatrical world. It is full of humor, brilliant with wit and roaring with fun. The New Hoy is tbe husband of tbe matron of a big, fashionable school. The doctor in charge of it is an old admirer and he wants to marry her. He has willed her his fortune on condition that she does not marry again, fie has not seen her for years, imagines ber little husband to be the son of her former husband. She does not deceive him. Tbe little man is put into the classes as a boy, and he has a fearful time. He ie hazed, dragged nut of bed at night, his clothes half torn off, all because they think he is a boy. He is made to sleep with the bully of tbe school. If you have ever slept with a saw-mil! or been left alone with a kicking mnle, you can know how the little man felt. The doctor was making love to bis wile, and he wae kicked about as an ordinary school boy, but he painted " What't the good of anything t — Nothing!" things red and turned the place into an insane asylum for fun. In tbe end he saves the dootor'a fortune from the vil lain of tha play, gets hugged and kiaaed by tbe villain's daughter, who wante to marry him, and it is all done on the stage before the audience. The play will be here on Thursday, Friday, Sat urday at matinee and evening, Decem ber 6, 7 and 8. Tbe Los Angeles theater is to have the American Extravaganza company in Aladdin, Jr., next week. This will be the first opportunity Loa Angeles the ater-goers have bad of seeing this great company. Manager David Henderaon haa always wanted to bring bia big or ganization to thia oity, but none of the atagss of the tbeatera have ever been large enough to produce his spectacles. .Now that the stage of the Los Angeles theater has been enlarged he baa ar ranged to bring Aladdin, Jr., his latest and greatest production, to the Los An geles theater next week. It will be pro duced here in all its entirely, with ev erything exactly as it was done in Chi cago. The company is playing in Den ver this week, and come directly from that tity to Loa Angeiea. From thia city the big apectacle goea to tbe Bald win theater, San Franeiaco. for three weeks, and then back to St. Louis. The American Extravanganza com pany numbers about 100 people, and travels in a sp° 'it train of nine cars. It was organized lit years ago, and has produced Blue Beard, Jr., Arabian Nights, Crystal Slipper, Ali Baba, Bin bad and Aladdin, Jr. Two of these spectacles ran two years. On Sunday evening, December 2d, William and Willard Newell, the famous twin stars, who have jnst concluded a highly successful engagement at the Grand Opera houee in San Francisco, will commence a short engagement at the Burbank theater. The Boston Poet of a recent date haa tbe following: In The Operator the Grand Opera houee presents to Boston a play never before seen in tbis city, and which has tbe de« ciaed novelty of twin Btars. In this age of the heroio meio>drama it is some what unusual to find a play in which the identity of the hero ie ever in doubt, but except in case o! some distinguish ing act, tbe Brothers Newell might ap pear hero or villain interchangeably for all that the audience could tell. ' Tbe play is not of the familiar type of melo drama, but abounds in lively dialogue, quick action, and thrilling olimnxes, abductions, murder. Steamer and rail road wrecks follow so ciose npon each other and portrayed with auch realism tbat one is carried through the five ootß as if in real life and seems to forget the playhonie until the fall of the curtain at tha end. Tbe action of the play rests upon the close resemblance of the hero, George Darrington, and hia counterpart who plots to take his place, and it has been written with careful regard for intensity of contrasts. Meesrs. William and Willard Newell, for whom the piece was written, do not lack in ability, and the resemblance between them is made more striking because of the sameness of intonation and gesture. »** The popular Imperial music hall has gained a place for itself in tbe minds of the publio, ,and, like tha vaudeville houses of tbe east, is doing full justice by keeping faith with its patrons in bringing expensive talent to thii city. LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 2, 1894. It is gratifying to know tbat vaudeville has grown popular in tbis city and that Los Angeles has fallen in line with o'her large cities where the music ball aSords the same facilities as does the Imperial, and at popular prices. Tbe public has no conception of what is paid artists in tbe specialty line, es pecially when the nature of their tarn is something peculiar to themselves. For instance, Aif Ellinghouse, one of the managers of the Imperial, has this to say: "Tbe public bas been pleased with our performances and the many novel ties tbat have been brought out, yet I am sure, with a very few exceptions, the people have a very slight idea that Beaham and Daikin. we have been paying such high prices. I will quote the following: Frincess Dol porouky, $250; Braatz Brothers, $250; Sanky Brothers, $200; Sadi Alfarabi, $250; Sisters Aleene. $150; Burke Broth ers, $200; Josephine Sable, $350 per week. With these high priced people our hoaae haa done a splendid business, and our future method will be to im port only tbe very best talent obtain able. For this evening another great open ing bill will be given, composed of the following: Behan and Dankin, Bernard Brothers, Roman and Kid, Max Pettin gill and bis canine partner Willie, Miss May Devillian, Quigley Brothers, Geo. Harriaon, Sandford and Rice, Miss Em ma Francis, Picard Brothers, Goodwin and Summers, Springfield and Spring field, Inman and Hart, Miss Annie Pi card. There will be a matinee today and an evening performance. At tbe Vienna Buffet, Carmen, the beautiful Spanish dancer, will perform, Ihe programme for next week will be a select one, and the crowded houses show that Mr. Kerkow's desire to secure only the best of talent is fully appreciated. Armand and Granville and Miss Beta Gough are great attractions. Tbe or chestra is simply perfect. Notes from Theatrical Tidings. Charles Frohman was in Boston last week, rehearaing Henry Miller and tbe other members of tbe Empire Stock company in The Masqueradera. A paragraph ia going around that Manager Henry C. Miner nsed to be an apothecary. Why not add tbat he is one still, for today he has a drug etore near his Bowery theater. Sydney Booth, who was tbe favorite nephew of Edwin Booth and who wae specially engaged for James O'Neill's support laat week, has been retained by Mr, O'Neill for the season. William A. Brady ia to make an an nual Christmas production ol a panto* mime at the Boirdoin Square theater, Boston. This year the pantomime is to be Little Red Biding Hood. Joseph (iriamer, C. W. Oouldock, Dore Davidson, Annie M. Clarke and Phoebe Davis will appear in a production of Sutton Vane's melodrama, Humanity, which William A. Brady will make in Boston next month. Rich & Harris, the Boston managers, have Bigned a contract with Bamsey Morris which will go into effect in Au gust and continue forty weeks. Evi dently they propose to make a new pro duction or Bend out a new oompany next year. Fanny Davenport is rehearsing ber company daily at the Fifth Avenue the ter, New York. Mias Davenport ia say ing very little in advance about her pro* duction. She haa been in business long enough to know tbat tbe first night will tell everything. The Manxman, which Wilson Barrett is to produce lor tbe first time in this country at the American theater. New York, next week, made a strongly fa vorable impression in England during its recent tonr there. Mr. Bariett brings over with him an English com pany. William Haroonrt, tha well known leading man, ia rehearaing with Richard Mansfiled in Boston thia week. Henry Jewin, who has been Mr. Manefield'e leading man so far this aeaaon. leaves tbe star's support, and Mr. Harcourt will succeed him. Modjeska writes to Frank W. Parley, her American representative, tbat aba baa just begun a tour of Poland. Bhe is committing the role of Fedora to mem ory in the Polish language. She has never before, by tbe way, acted the character. Bhe intends also to memor ize in Polish the roles of Magna and Marie Stuart. Calm and critioal Boston has indulged in panegyrics over James O'Neill's per formance of Yiginine. Mr. O'Neill'e Monte Cristo evoked unlimited ap> plauaed, bnt his Virginiua ia making even a stronger impreaaion. The vivld neaa and distinctness with which each different sentiment of the character is delineated indicates the breadth of tbe actor's art. New York scoffs at Chicago, New Or leans and St. Louie for tbeir Sunday theatricals, but it what tbe people want, and, as an instance, the Black Patti at ber concert given at Carnegie Music hall, New York, last Sunday night, played to over $3000. The only misfort une of tbis woman is her color. She sings as well as any woman in the world, and if ehe were white she would com mand the Melba-Eames terms. Dorcas, the musical comedy in which i'auline Hall is starring under George B. McLellan's management, has been playing "banner engagements" so far this season. The opera ia said to very tuneful. Mr. MoLellan, who reoently brongh suit against the Rev. Dr. Jenkins of Sionx City, la., for bis utterances in the public press against Miss Hall, says he ie cure of winning his case and that if there are any other western preachers anxious to follow snit he will be glad to meet them. Henry Herman, one of ths actors in Shenandoah, called on Archbishop Ire land recently, eaya the New York Timea, and waa cordially received aa one of tbe archbiehop'e old pupils. In tbe course of conversation, bis grace said he had written a letter, which had not yet reached this country, but was published in France, to the effect that the theater could effect much good in correcting morale, and in aiiording innocent amusement and diversion, which are quite necessary to a happy existence. It ia little things like this tbat show that tbe world is moving on. Max Figman, the co-star witb Sadie Marttnot in the Passport, is versatile. Five or six seasons ago he was playing the leading comedy part in a Klralfy Brothers' spectacular prodnction. At the last moment tbe orchestra leader had an apoplectic fit and there was no way for tbe ballet to piroutte unless the unexpected happened. Figman took tho shape of the nnexpected. As a boy bo had led a choral society, and he ws» well versed in music. As a laat resort Kiralfy let him take the leader's chair. He led them, however, to the bitterend. Bnt he had to put his make-up on and take it off nine times during the even ing, for the spectacle was full of trans formation scene*. Daniel Frohman, in a speech at the rent dinner given by the American Dramatists club, stated that during the last seven years be had produced at the Lyceum theater, 12 original American plays, by native writers, and 13 foreign pieces by nine authors. Mr. Frohman added that he had paid on these playe, fr m tbeir accumulated productions (at the Lyceum theater and on tour), the sum of $203,000 In royalties to the au thors ; and $118,000 of this sum bad gone to American writers. A. M. Palmer, in commenting upon the value to managers and authors of tbe proposed bill to stop play piracy, hoped it would result in the writing of playe worth protecting, and tbat managers stood not only In need of good American plays, but were ready to pay liberally for them. Julian Magnus Baid the other day: "There has been for many years a belief among certain unsuccessful would-be playwrights that thecritios of tbe chief papers in New York are inclined to be unjustly severe on the efforts of Ameri can writers for tbe stage, and more par ticularly on those that come from the ranka of journalism. 1 have never be lieved thia. When A. K. Lancaster and I wrote Conscience, it waa moat kindly received and that, too, at a time when there were very few American drama tists. Now, after an interval of eilence 18 years long, we write Daughters of Eve for Marie Wainwrigbt, and on the day after its first presentation in Now York, every morning paper, with one solitary exception, praised it highly. There is no jealousy among the majority of the journalists at the success in an other field of one of their number. On the contrary, I am sure, they are glad of it and delight in extending a helping hand when they can consistently do so." THE GRAND IS CLOSED. THE "MERRY BARON" COMES NOT BACK AGAIN. Captain Rlokardi, Whs Shouldered the Burden, Tells of the Manner In Which He Waa Drawn Into the Net. Last night the Grand opera houae, under tbe management of Captain Rick ards, closed its doors. A. W. Benson, The Merry Baron, opened tbe place only a few weeks ago in a blaze of glory and it closee now nnder a financial cloud. As far aa Captain Rickard's part in tbe downfall of the piece is concerned, it wonld seem that his actions have been above reproach. Laat night Mr. Rickarda granted an interview to a re porker of the Herald. "Mr. Benson, whom I bad tbe misfor tune to meet almost immediately on my arrival in this city from England," he said, "told me in the preaence of my wife and on many distinct occasions tbat he was making from $200 to $300 a week, and induced me, by other false repre sentations to give him over $4000 for a half interest in tbe Grand Opera house. "I paid bim $2000 at first and before I paid him tbe balance he assured me tbat he would never ask me for another cent, but that be would use my money and his own in making the theater a suc cess. "He induced me to permit of hie leave ing Los Angeles, assuring me of bis in intention of leaving me clear with a bal ance of $500 to keep the show going dur ing bis absence. Instead of this I found tbe aocount overdrawn at the bank and lot of bills unpaid. "When I found tbis to be tbe case I did my best to settle theso accounts. Every cent tbat came into tbe pay box both tbis week and tbe end of last being paid out and what other money I could raise going to the same object. "Not only was I deceived by Mr. Ben son on this point, but he also promised to makeover tbe furniture of his rooms to me so that I might live in them dur ing bis and his wife's absence. "Instead of doing this be left instruc tions with his lawyer to look the rooms and sell the furniture immediately on bis departure "I only wish to put myself right with the publio and to cut myself away from any other transactions tbat A. W, Ben son may be oonnected witb. "I have given the Grand opera bouse over to tbe actors and employees with the object in view of paying as much of what is owing as possible, and I trust that I may get the credit of having done everything iv my power to put things right, and that in the future the public of this oity will not mix my name up with that of my late partner." Going to tho Antipodes. "Parson" Todd, the clown who has bean recuperating in thie city on account oi wounds received at the hands oi a maniac a year ago, will depart tomorrow or San Francisco, where he will join a circus and sail for tbe Antipodes. He will touch at Honolulu, Melbourne, Jo hannesburg, Cape Town and other points, and will keep hie friends posted as to bis whereabouts by sending letters of bis travels to the Herald. The "parson" says that if he keeps his health and cannot make both ends meet with the circus, he will go to preaching. He already haa six bullets in him, and is willing to risk adding to the collection, so long as he has hopes of returning to bis native state. Todd never tires of telling tbe story of how he was shot and captured in Chihuahua by the Indian chief Splt-at-the-Moon and hit band of bloodthirsty braves. Anyone who haa children will rejoice with L. M. Mulford, of Pleinfield. N. J. Hie little boy, five yeara of age, waa sick with croup. For two dare and nights he tried yarioua remedies recommended by friends and neighbors. He says: "I thought sure I would lose him. I had seen Chamberlain's Congh Remedy ad vertised and thought I would try it as a last hope and am happy to say tbat after two doses he slept until morning. I gave it to him next day and a oure waa effected. 1 keep this remedy in the house now and as soon as any of the children show any signs of croup I give it to them and that ie the last of it." 60 cent bottles for sale by off & Vaughn corner Fourth and Spring streets, and C.

Mica People Don't Lma Th.lr 8«lf-Ka apaot When Thar Wltnesa a Little Set-to obj tha Stage—Pn«ll lata a Theatrical Naed. After all, William Manning, actor and author, ie not a very different man from Billy Manning, pugilist and phys iognomist. No "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" business with him. Just at tbe conclusion of • week's en gagement at tbe Grand opera bouse, flushed witb his numerous successes and with tbe generous plaudits of the delighted populace still ringing in his ears, Mr. Manning consented to tell a reporter of the Herald of tbe plaoe which latter-day pugilism is taking in the theatrical world and to describe how pugilists are endeavoring to elevate the stage. "Dese mugs wots rnnniu' teaters ain't been onto deraelves out dii way," began Mr. Manning, tbe actor, as he grace fully wiped a slight accumulation of perspiration off the inner band of bis shiny plug bat with a gorgeously bor dered silk handkerchief, after the man ner of theatrical people. "Dem eastern fever* is outer uere job, dough." " 1 ire's de idea, Dey's dead loads of dese wimmina, desa fine-haired people, see? wot'a never 'ad no opportunity, you understand, to git dere peeps on no sparriu' exhibishun, ace? cauae day can't go up against no fight in no dive ware dere's blood and 'ard'ittin', ace?

At de same time dey gits to see us mags go trough de motions and dey tinka dey's seen tbe whole bag o' trioks. "Say, 'ere'a de idea, right 'ere—"Mr. Manning, the aotor, paused and felt in hia inner pocket for something which, evidently, couldn't be located. "Well, dat don't out no figure; don't give de snap away in de paper, an' I'll give you de tip, see? Yesterday I gits a letter in de mail wid perfuoary enough on it to start a drug store wid, an' itsay s me shape is lovely and a lot of gaff list c dat, an' I looxs down to de bottom an' finds dat it wae signed wid some name like 'Nydia' er some sort of a guv like dat.

"I gives dem de action an' all de time if any jay in de audience gits to feelin' like 'c wants to trow 'is propa up againat me, dere I am wid me offer ol $20 fer de man wot stays de four rounds." Here the reporter interrupted Mr. Manning, the actor, to aak if he ever felt any fear that aome one might, acci dentally, accept the generous $20 offer, and, catching him unawares, do him great bodily barm. The interruption gave Mr. Manning time to again wipe'his hat band, the way actors dn.
