HOLLOWAY * CO., PH1LA* 10-23- wcd-fri-su-wky-ly THINGS DRAMATIC. A fair house greeted J. K. Emmett and his company in “Fritz in a Mad House” at O’Brien’s last night. Mr. Emmett was suffering from a se vere cold which interfered considerably with his singing,but notwithstanding this he gave satisfaction and was encored at the end of each song. Aside from his cold he was the same old jolly ‘ Fritz” that has delighted so many audiences during his career on the stage. This was Mr. Emmett’s lirst visit to Birmingham since 1889, but he had not been forgotten and his friends turned out to see him. The supporting company is fairly good, and especially was the audience pleased with Lilttle Baby Slnnot’s singing and dancing. She sang the “Bowery Girl” charmingly. “The White Squadron.” "The White Squadron,” the greatest success ever staged by that noted pro ducer, A. Y. Pearson, will bo an early at traction in thiB city. Although this play has been a standard card for the leading theaters of the country for five years, It seems not to have lost one whit of Its popularity, and draws as large audiences today as it did the first season It was staged, when It made a hit that has been recorded as a memorable one In the his tory of the American drama. The theme of the piece, which abounds In most ar dent patriotism, Is one of which audi ences never grow tired. This year this great play is presented with an entirely new scenic and mechanical equipment by a new company. The congress of navies In Bio Janeiro, Brazil, forms the basts of the Intensely interesting, patriotic and love story which is related in the action of the great naval drama, "The White Squad ron,” which eclipses the first presenta tion. Kvcry member of the company, every piece of scenery and every me chanical effect is new. The great scenes are the grand plaza in Rio Janeiro, the interior of the princely residence of fien eral Romacio, the Parahiba, with its ruined monastery and the congress of navies, in which the white squadron of the American navy Is shown under sail nnd steam. “The White Squadron” will be seen at O'Brien's. Sousa’s Band. Sousa's advance sale begins at the opera house tomorrow morning. This concert should lx1 regarded as a musical landmark, since, in respect to the great hand, Its matchless leader and the two charming nrtlsts who will grace the event the concert will be an occasion greatly to be enjoyed and long remembered. The programme for the matinee and evening engagements at O'Brien’s Friday is aB follows: Matinee. Sousa Band Concert— Mr. John Phillip Sousa, director. Miss MyTta French, soprano. Miss Currie Duke, violinist. Mr. Arthur Pryor, trombonist. Overture—“Stra^ella” (Flotow). Siegfried’s Death from "The Cotter damerung" (Wagner). Trombone solo—"Air and Variations" (Pryor), Mr. Arthur Pryor. (a) Intermezzo—"William RadclilT” (Mascagni). (b) . Dance In the style of the ancients, "Pass Pied” (Gillet). Ballet Suite—"Feast of the Flowers" (Tolhurst). Soprano solo—“Manon I.escaut" (Mas senet), Miss Myrta French. (u) Caprice—"The Water Sprite," new (Kunkel). (t>> March—“The Directorate" (Sousa). Violin solo, Transcription—“Chopin's Nocturne," (Wllhelml), Miss Currie Duke. Fantastic. Episode—"The Stag Party" (Sousa). Sextette from "Lucia" (DenLsettl), Messrs. Bode.

Signor Simone Mantla. Wedding music—"Lohengrin" (Wag ner.) Soprano solo—Valse from “Romeo and Juliet" (Gounod). Miss Myrta French. (a) Intermezzo—"Forget-me-not," new (Macbeth). (b) March—“Kifig Cotton," new (Sou sa). Violin solo—“Gypsy Dances" (Sara snte), Miss Currie Duke. Humoresque—“The Band Came Back” (Sousa). Prelude—“Carmen' (Biset). The reader should not lose sight of the fact that the printed programme of Sousa’s hand give hut a slight Idea of the great variety of music played by the gen ial bandmaster The demand for encores almost Invariably doubles Sousa's pro grammes. These encores consist of his most brilliant marches and other popular .melodies, plantation songs and dances, etc. Sousa has a way of pleasing all tastes, and the people leave his concerts feeling that they have been entertained as they ware rarely ever entertained be fore. The classicists get their share, the lovers of the melodies of the people, theirs, and the gallery gods are enabled to keep time to the southern plantation dances with indescribable delight. The feature of Sousa's concerts, together with the magnetism which Is among his potent attractions, largely constitutes the great popularity of the leader at Manhattan Beach, the St. Louts exposition, and throughout the country traversed so fre quently by the concert tours. They Smelt a Rat. Washington, Nov. 6—The president was not In the city today and there was none of the cabinet ministers In the city to receive election returns* as usual. i INQUIRIES ABOUT -BIRMINGHAM.

Fall Hats In New and Stylish Shapes. A hat is one of the most profitable articles sold by furnishing goods dealers. A profit Is made on the stylo and tone of It, as well as the quality. Our trade policy JA the Selling of Hats, -as in everything else we handle. Is just the reverse of this. Buying as we do in immense quantities,, we secure prices not obtainable by other dealers. Selling as we do at a small margin of profit enables us to name lower prices than anyone else in the business.
