JUDGE RdBINSON’S CASE.
His Attorney Makes a Proposition to the Court
That Will Be Submitted to the
Governor.
Montgomery, Nov. 18.—(Special.)—The
supreme court met today to hear evi
dence in the impeachment proceedings
against Judge Robinson of Lee county.
It was ascertained that over 150 wit
nesses would have to be examined, that
two weeks would be required to examine
them and that the state would be put to
some $4000 expense in the matter. The
defendant's attorney, Judge Chilton, call
ed the court's attention to these facts and
proposed that as the state's evidence had
already been taken by Commissioner
Sayre that it would be a great having to
the state to have him take the defend
ant's testimony also. Judge Chilton, for
the defense, agreed that his client would
pay all of the expenses of the commis
sioner in excess of what the state would
have to pay an official stenographer for
recording the testimony in open court.
The court then adjourned over until to
morrow pending the governor's accept
ance or rejection of the defendant's
proposition. Governor Oates is out of the
city, but will be communicated with by
wire. i
A Land Sale.
A spirited auction sale of lots in 'the
suburb of Oakley, situated a mile and a
half from the artesian basin, was held
this morning.

ley plat, for $225.
G. W. Turner, lots 9 and 10, $125 each.

each, and lot 14 at $160.

lot 3, same block, $130.
George Stuart, lot 1, block 4, $150.

During the sale vacant lot 20x150 feet
on the southwest corner of Lawrence and
Scott, was offered for sale and was started
by Mr. J. B. Nacrosla. whose bid was
$3000. After spirited bidding it was
knocked down to Mr. Nathaniel Griel for
$3550.
Tom Mastin Will Live.
The condition of Mr. Tom Mastin, the
young man who attempted to commit
suicide by shooting himself through the
head at Mr. Dave Fleming's restaurant
Ln the presence of his wife and some oth
er friends, is steadily but slowly improv
ing, and there are strong hopes now of
his recovery. A telephone message from
the Infirmary today was to the effect that
Mastin was resting quietly and seemed
to be slowly improving and was doing as
well as could be expected. It is believed,
however, that the sight of one eye will
be entirely destroyed and perhaps the
other will be seriously affected.

The society circles of Montgomery are

not had such a delightful surprise and
sensation in years.

THINGS DRAMATIC,
That distinguished American trage
dian, Creaton Clarke, comes from rare old
acting stock, /ils father was John
Sleeper Clarke and his mother’s name
was Asia Booth, sister of Edwin Booth.
This accounts for the brilliant reper
toire of classical plays ha will appear in
this season, such as “Hamlet," "Fool's
Revwige,” Don 1 Caesar de / Bazan,"
"Richelieu," "Much Ado About Noth
ing,” "Richard III,” "Othello,” "Mer
chant of Venice,” "Faint Heart Ne'er
Won Fair Lady' and "The Raven.”
For some yearsjjast one of the most
welcome attractions at our best play
houses has been the Hanlon Bros.’ start
ling spectacular play, "Fantasma.” Our
old friend returns to us this season at
O’Brien's opera house in a new dress, and
with many new features in the way of
surprisingly new tricks, new mechani
cal devices and entirely new scenery, and
who with a magnificent company, among
whom are George H. Adams, the fa
mous clown, who cannot be otherwise
than funny, and whose antics, grimaces,
gestures and poses keep his audiences in
the highest state of merriment. Miss
Nettie Black, who so ably plays the fairy
queen in "Fantasma," is also a soprano
of high order. She delights every one
with her rendition of the popular songs
of the day. Another musician of de
served (•'nerit with the company is Miss
Pauline Glidden, a most accomplished
cornet soloist. A pleasing feature of
this year’s production of "Fantasma”
is Miss Gertruda Lamar in the beautiful
Spanish dances, which require grace
and great agility in their performance.
Miss Sadie Stevens is also among the mu
sical contingent of this splendid com
pany, and she has a pure, sweet voice
when singing some of the favorite bal
lads of the period.
The McDonough brothers, grotesque
dancers, are truly mystifying in their
gyrations, jumps and peculiar poses.
On the whole, “Fantasma,” will this
year be better than ever before, as be
sides the above mentioned artists, many
specialists of renown have been engaged
especially for this season.

f There’s room for a little more of it.
Too many women are wasting time
and strength over a wash-board ; rub
bing their clothes to pieces ; wasting their
money. You’d be astonished if you could
figure up the actual money saving in a
year by the use of Pearline. Millions
of women are using it now, but just
suppose that all women were equally
careful and thrifty, and that every
one used Pearline! It’s too much
to hope for—but the whole country
would be the richer for it.
QpJ Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers will
sjCllvl tell you “ this is as good as" or ‘‘the same as
j. | Pearline." IT'S FALSE — Pearline is
“ liA C* K never peddled,and if your grocer sends
you something in place of Pearline, be honest — send
it back. «73
