THE PACIFIC COSOCEltCIAIi ADVERTISEK: HONOIiTJIiU, OCTOBER 30, 1894.
5 A MUCH TALKED OF PLAY. "Saints and Sinners," and its Plot. A I'erf jrinanc Which lis CaaifiMore I)leuion Than l'robably Ay Other Cleixymeu Invited. "Saint anJ Sinners," which will be played tonight, has caused as much diocu9?ion, if not more, than any play evsr produced. It has been praised by some ministers, while others have 'poured out the vials of their wrath upon it in a tirade of abtne fcr connecting the church with the stage. In spite of all this, or perhaps because of it, it has had an immense success all over the United States, and was one of A. M. Palmer's biggest drawing cards. The story is a sad one. Jacob Fletcher, an old minister, presides over a congregation at Steepleford. ITm fiml one cf the deacons or his church named Iloggard, are the trus tees of a widow's estate, on which Iloggard has placed a very small val uation, intending to buy It in, and thus defraud the widow out of a great iortion of what is due her. In this h seeks and obtains the co-operation of another deacon, Prabble. Lettie, Fletcher's daughter, is loved by George Kingsmill, a worthyyoung farmer. JJut sn is aoaucieu auu uo t rayed by Captain Fanshaw, an army nmnor FipfMiPr and Kinsrsmill. as toon as ther find out where Lettie is, hasten to London and persuade her to return home. She does so, and nothing is known of her action. Hog- gard and Prabble, however, discover wli&t iihfl has done, and tell Fletcher that if he does not assist them in their nlans to obtain fraudulent possession of the widow's estate, tbey will inform his parishioners of Let- tie's sin. Fletcher scorns their pro posal, and. after the church service Is over, he asks the concrecation to come Into his vestry. There he explains the whole story. He is asked to resign his pastorship, and does so. Kings mill, however, stens forward, and pub lirlv naks Lettie to be his wife, but she refuses. Kletrher and his daughter for some time have a bare existence, he preach ing in some of the surrounding vil lages, and she obtaining employment as a nurse. After some years, Hcg gard Is discovered to have wrecked a bank, and flies. He is pursued, and forced to take refuge in Fletcher's house to escape mob violence. The latter helps him to leave the country. Then Fletcher is asked to again re sume the pastorate of the church which he had been turned from, and is also urged to bring his daughter with him. Lettie, however, is very ill. Just after this Kingsmill returns from Australia, a rich man, but finds his prospective wife dying. Herdeath closes the play. Manager Dailey has sent an invita tion to all the clergymen of the city to attend the performance, and un doubtedly several of them, at least, will be present. ii WHERE TIMES ARE REALLY HARD, Cause For Congratulation to People Here. the Kuilnei What Irotratd In the States Two Travelers Saw Dow it In la Seattle. Port Surveyor Sand-rs says that business in all its branches in the United States seems to be stagnat ed. Traffic and trade are at a standstill. The common carriers are doing nothing and wholesale and retail merchants and working men are complaining everywhere. Men have been discharged by the hundreds, and wages reduced in every quarter. The general belief is that there will soon be a change for the better. "Confidence will be restored," is a stock claim. In San Francisco a leading merchant eaid to Mr. Sanders that in the past couple of months there had been a slight improvement in and about that city. There are not so many unemployed at the Golden Gate City as "during last winter. Across the continent tramps are begging and roving by the thous ands. L. L. McCandless, who lately returned from Seattle, eays that business up there has been poral yzeu. He asserts he could have engaged 500 men there to come to the islands and work for $10 a month and board. A friend of an attache of this paper, writing from Seattle under date of Oct. 7th, gives a pitiful picture of the conditions. These are his words : "This is a glorious country here in Washington, and Seattle seems des tined for commercial greatness; but at present everything is at a stand still. The crops are good, but they bring no remuneration to the farmer. Trade is very slack, notwithstanding the unprecedentedly low prices. Rents are away down, with mauy vacant houses. There is no building. Prop erty has shrunk in value more than one-half, and there is no movement, even at the reduced prices. Wages are very low, work of all kinds scarce and situations hard to find. I see nirnf th. cam conditions prevailing everywhere that I have been. People are simply hanging hoping for the best. . . . on ana vuguc Thprp is not a man on earth who coming out." can tell how it i MET THEift f.'ATCHES. a wo laliinrii.aii V.

Frank HapTilx rr, the Kcnlptor, av.d Jim Yunr, tin restaurateur, were out viewing the remains of tlit Midwinter fair a few clays ago, when both found themselves with cigars and without matches. "Ah, I have it," remarked Yun. Como over to the Manufactures build ing. I have a friend thero who has a match exhibit, and we can get what we want." They walked to the booth, and as tho proprietor wasn't there Jim took the liberty of helping him.-elf to tho great pile of was matches. "Take all you want, Frank," ho re- ciarked. "He's got a wagonload hero tnd don't want them." Il.llipaM.TLr l-OIIlIIlf IlCeil UillllLT HIS IT.. 1 1 ! 1 t pockets. "I'll need .some at my studio," and ho filled his trousers pockets. "Ought to have some at ray room, too," and his vest pockets were loaded. "We always nc-ed them on my naphtha launch, and his coat pockets com menced to bulge. "Guess I'll takBoniohome, " remark ed Jim as ho commenced loading his clothes. "A few wouldn't at tho restaurant either." come ami; Then they walked out looking lfta a pair of smugglers loaded for a customs officer. At tho door they met the owner of the booth. Ilappersberg had been scratching matches on his trousers tho. wholo length of tho building, but they wouldn't light. Yung had also worn a slick streak on his jiantaloons. "What's tho matter with tu matches;" he inquired of tho exhibitor. "What matches?" "Why, yours. Wo helped ourselves to a box or two, as yon weren't there. Uii, mere is no pnospnorus tu them. Tho fair managers wouldn't al low genuine matches in tho building. Thono aro just painted wax. Yung and Happersberg stole down to Stow lako and unloaded. San Francis co Post. HUMAN COMEDY IN STG.NE. The IlUttts Which Will Adorn the New 1A- brary Itulltlings at Washington. Nino busts in granite have been fin ished for the exterior decoration of the new library of congress in Washington. Tho worthies who first come to tho front are Walter Scott, DantP, Deniostheue Nathaniel Hawthorne, Emerson, Irving, Goethe, Benjamin Franklin and Ma- caulay. judging cy newapaper cuts, a grinr variety of expression has been obtain-.- by the respective- artist3who have uunl; these nine busts. Walter Scott has tho intent, forward gazo of a college sprinter waiting foi tho word "go." Dante looks as if Dr. Chauncey M. Depew had just refused tc accommodate him with a pass to Buffa lo. The model who sat for Demosthenes was Puck's Weary Waggles. Benjamin Franklin is slyly chuckling over his snc- cess in lodging a big charge of electrici ty in Nathaniel Hawthorne's back hair. Macaulay has put on a beautifully and symmetrically curled wig. Ralph Wal- no imerson nas got tno raiiroau pass which Dante missed. Washington Irv ing is listening to the Hon. Amos J. Cummiugs latest and best anecdote, and Goetho has just caught through hi? aierc ieic ear an invitation to cnns from a man whom his soul loathes. For picturesque animation tho work of the seven sculptors seems meritorious. If this is only a beginning, tho front oi tho new li ry buildings bids fair tc be a hum:::i comedy in stone. Tho ap- pearanco of tho second nino will be waited with great interest. Washing ton Letter. SUPERSTITIOUS RUSSIA. The Cruel Ulurder of a Woman Suipos"l tc Tie the "Cholera Devil." Another form which the devil as sumes in Russia pretty often of lato is that of tho cholera, who, of course, is a female. In the district of Barnaul the other day tho peasants were determined to mate snort wort oi tno 'cunmmr one" in that odious role of his. They clubbed together and lay in wait. One day they descried tho spirit of evil on his way to kill people with the terrible epidemic. Ho was riding in a tarantass a sort of spviuRless cart covered with canvas disguised in tho form of a fe male. The watchman refused to allow the taranta.-s to enter the village of Pras loukha. The woman inside protested, but had to turn back. The peasants as sembled, gave chase to the tarantacs, surrounded it and called out to the "cholera devil" to disappear. Tho poor woman said he was human like them selves and could not vanish miraculous ly, but tiny shouted, preyed and. closed around. A few shots we re heard, fol lowed iy a piteous moan aui tnen a deafening shout of triumph: "Pray to God, brothers, and thank him. We have killed tho cholera." The woman's name was Kondratieff. Her corpse w: imt allowed into the village. London Telegraph. The Emperor and the Yacht n. Enipcror William does not sympa thize with American ambition to yacht in English waters, says an American, writing from Loudon. Nobody was more pleased than he when his royal uncle's yacht beat the Vigilant. Even the London newspapers felt called upon to explain that tho kaiser's visit was purely personal and that his social pleas ures or shortcomings among -the visit ors at Cowcs wero solely his private affair. The ISrownlngr Slab. The slab to cover the grave of Robert Browning in Westminster abbey has just been completed in Venice. It is of the oriental porphyry of which the poet was particularly fond. It has been put into a frame of Sienna marble, and the wholo, though rich, is of tho greatest simplicity. The inscription will consist only of the name and the dates of birth and death, with an English rose at ii; hoad an- a Florentine lilv bolow. The Daily month. Advertiser 75 cents a Ladies5 Column.
