May Sonic Day Become the Great est American Star. Blanche Bates made her debut with the Frawley Stock Company in Salt Lake City five years ago. She has been a leading woman of that company con tinuously since until recently, and is a prime favorite with theater goers in San Francisco and other Pacific Coast cities. Ambitions for a New York career beset her. When she received an offer from Augustin Daly she promptly accepted ' it. She laughed when she wrote her reply. She rem embered the day five years before when she had presented herself, a timid ap plicant, at Mr. Daly's office. Mr. Dab neglected the little formality of remov- ing his hat, which shocked the board ing school bred girl. "Who are you?" said Mr. Daly. Miss Blanche Bates j falteringly explained that she was "nobody much," but she hoped to be. "What d'ye want?" asked the manager. Miss Bates explained her aspirations for a stage career. "No, I don't want you," was his "businesslike" reply. "And now he does want me," she j laughed gleefully as she wrote an ac ceptance of his offer two months ago. She went to New York a few weeks ago. She played Celia in "As You Like It." The critics gazed. She played Blanca in "The Taming of the Shrew." The critics wondered. She played the Count ess in "The Great Ruby." The critics adored and rhapsodized. The astute manager A. M. Palmer, is saying "I told you so." He won a $500 wager on Blanche Bates' success in "The Great Ruby." Now he is predicting that she will be the greatest American star. She has captured the popular fancy. When her announcement of her sudden with drawal from the Daly Company was made she received a flood of letters. Their writers ranged from the owner of a Fifth-avenue mansion to a god of the galleries. They were all cordial, all anti-Daly, and all predicted phe nomenal success. SAMOAN PECULIARITIES. Apia is located on the considerable island of Upolu. It is bounded on one side by the singing sands of the har bor, white as the back of a girl's hand. The dust-scurrying trade winds blow interminably, roaring through the palms. On the landward side a couple of insignificant rivers the Mulivai and the Vaisingano form, with the Pacific Ocean, a three-sided fosse around the zone of trouble. For the rest, there are some ravines and a vast m6b of child like, bloody-minded, . naive, scandal mongering, clean-colored natives of engaging manners and unpronounce able names, to whom fighting and gos sip and head-getting is the breath of their nostrils. The islands lie to the westing and south'ard of San Fran cisco, and can be reached by a fast yacht presupposing that the owner had no possible business elsewhere in the wide world in a matter of a dozen or so days. On arriving, the yacht master will find just whom Robert Louis Stevenson found when he turned his dark and kindly face islandward "contemporaries of our tattooed an cestors, who drove their chariots on the wrong side of the Roman wall." Very likely these contemporaries will, for the most part, be found surf-bathing and fishing. The inhabitants are Christians, church-goers, singers of hymns, hardy cricketers, but withal (perchance by reason of the acquired veneer of civil ization) children of nature and head hunters, devoted to fetich worship and biased politically by legerdemain. One who can juggle a dollar in Apia is es teemed a god. Hermann, had be but known it, missed a chieftainship, Houdi-n., a principality, Robertson, had he performed his watch and fish trick over the side of a war canoe as he per formed it over the bulwarks of the Czar's yacht, would have been pre sented with a kingdom and a surfeit of worship. The islanders eagerly follow after false gods, but they are not lacking in shrewdness; they require the high priests of those gods to be possessed of a fine order of manual dexterity. In ordinary life, when cot engaged in the "speak-house" (a sort of Samoan house of representatives) or being, to their own huge delight, flayed alive by Euro pean copra merchants, the natives while away idle hours retailing gossip and scandal with their neighbors. In times not far back they made holiday parties hunting heads. Collier's Week ly. HURRICANE SEASON. (Army and Navy Journal, March 18.) Some anxiety is felt by the Navy De partment over the enforced presence of the Philadelphia at Apia at the pres ent time. The hurricane season is at its height, and it will be remembered that on the 15th of the present month occurred the sad disaster of ten years ago, resulting in the loss of the Tren ton and Vandalia. News of her safe arrival will be received in the course of the next few days it is believed, and as soon as her services are no longer required there it is the intention of the Department to recall her from Samoa, and in her place to station a smaller ship there for the protection of Ameri can interests. SHERMAN'S CONDITION. SANTIAGO DE CUBA, March 24. John Sherman has been safely moved from the American line steamer Paris to the quarters prepared for him on board the United States cruiser Chi cago. Mr. Sherman rested easy during- the night and awoke cheerful and prepared for the change. The Chicago arrived here after daylight and preparations were immediately made for the trans fer of Mr. Sherman from the passenger vessel to the war ship. He was carried on a stretcher, which was laid in one of the boats off the Paris while in the davits. The boat was then lowered in to the water and was taken in tow by a steam launch. Two umbrellas were placed over the sick man to protect him from the sun. Mr. Sherman was hoist ed on board the Chicago in the same manner. RANSOM FOR PRISONERS. Spain Offers Aguinaldo Money in Spite of America's Protest. NEW YORK, March 24 A cable to the times from Madrid says: Notwith standing the fact that General Otis, the Americans, the Spanish government has refused to rfinction negotiations be tween the Spaniards and Filipinos for the release of the Spanish prisoners held by the latter, basing his refusal on the ground that the money paid for the release of the captives would be used to aid the insurgents againsT the mericans, the Spanish Government has offered Aguinaldo, the insurgent lead er, 5000 pesetas for the release of each Spanish officer held by hilar, 500 pese tas for each soldier and 250 for each civilian. GERMAN PRESS AGGRESSIVE. BERLIN, March 24. The newspa pers here aggressively discuss the Sa moan question and a portion of the press maintains that Germany must adequately protect German interests there. The semi-official Post, referring to Germany's proposal to recall all the tripartite representatives in Samoa, says: This is the wisest thing all around, as then new arrangements would be much easier for all concern ed and it does not involve the humili ation of anybody. The Lokal Anzeiger, Boesen Courier and Cologne Gazette express amaze ment that neither America mor Great Britain is willing to show good will toward Germany in the matter. FOUR YEAR ENLISTMENT. Instructions have been, sent to Ad miral Dewey, at Manila, and Admiral Sampson, to enlist for four years all men with their commands who entered for the war with Spain but who desire to continue in the naval service. The Department officials believe that a large majority of this class will re-enlist acd no trouble will be experienced in keeping the naval quota up to its full limit allowed by law. It has been decided to maintain in commission all ships now afloat, as the increase of sailors allowed by the last Congress will enable this to. be done. At pres ent the enlisted strength consists of 17,660 men, but of this number 2,200 will be discharged as their terms of service have expired. ONE SPANISH VICTORY. Only once in their history as a na tion have the Spaniards achieved a naval victory. That was at the battle of Lepanto, in 1571, when, with the aid of Venetians and' Genoese, they an nihilated the Turkish fleet. In almost every neighborhood there is some one whose life has been saved by Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, or who ha3 been cured of chronic diarrhoea by the use of that medicine. Such persons make a point of telling of it whenever opportu nity offers, hoping that it may be the means of saving other lives. For sale by all Dealers, Benson Smith & Co., Ltd., Agents for H. I.
