Mr D. K. Baker, representing a large
manufacturing firm ot New York city,
arrived In Washington lat night fresh from
a close' study of the political situation in
tlmt city. He is at the Raleigh Mr.
Baker said to a Times reporter of the sit
uation: "it is very noticeable that there is a
chngnc in ttie betting lu the last two or
three days on tne contest. Tlie takers of
bets are refusing to j;lve nearly as large
odds on Van Wyck as tlfey did at first,
llus little straw Is considered a very
good indicatlun usually near election times.
It is my opinion now that Mr. Low's
cnances are getting better every day to
such an extent that he will probably be
elected. Tracy's friends are deserting him
for Mr Low quite considerably.
"There is another large element, not
wedded to eltr.er or these gentlemen, that
will vote on election day for the man
who looks most promising. These people
will very 'argely vote for Mr. Low, I
feel sure. The business men of New York
would prefer Mr. Low for mayor to any
ot the others. They have confidence in
his business Integrity and In his ability.
Mr. 'J racy is finely equipped Tor the po
sition or major of Greater New York,
and helped to frame the Greater New
York chartei, but Low's record as mayor
of Biooklyn was fine. A great many
people th'nk that he might have been
President before now if he had continued

ber of a bicycle manufacturing firm, is in

best method of introducing his machine lu
the city. He is at the Shoa'harn. Mr.
Beers Is of the opinion that the year '93
wdl be the best in the history ot the
bicycle, with the possible exception of
1S90. He hap been considerably over the
country, in tne last three or four months,
and says that in all tne swell bicyolo
riding academies the very bast people are
learning to ride. He thinks the machine
will be as much a favorite with society
people as ever, and that the number used
for business will bs as largely increased as
during any former year. Mr. Beers said
to a reporter for The Times last night as
to the prospect of the high priced wheel
in the future:
"There i3 no doubt that a great many
people want a $50 or a $75 muchlue. The
older concerns have been rather conserva
tive, and to make up the deficiency, a
great many less -well-known people have
manufac ured the cheaper machines, which
have bem bought considerably. During
1S9S, however, all the fir&t-class makers
whose standing is unquestioned, aud whom
everybody knows, will have $50 machines
as well as their best makes. These ma
chines put out by well-known firms will
drive tho lesser people to make even cheaper
machines. Their price will drop to $35
and $30, perhaps, but people -won't "want
such a low-priced bicycle, and I look to
see a great weeding out."

Mr. J. S. Bogers, ot Springfield, Ohio,

at the Ebbitt last night: "1 have no doubt
that the governor will be re-elected with a

chances, they are not eo good. I under
stand that they depend quite seriously on
the election in Hamilton county. There
are a lot of people in Hamilton county
who have always voted the Republican
ticket, who object seriously to George

The tragedy of the son ot Montague and
the daughterof Capulet was unfoldedagaiu
by Miss Mather and her company at the
Columbia last night. The character or
Juliet was the stepping stone to this
actress' career and the compass or Juliet's
maidenly wlnsomeness and matronly trag
edy was supposed to be the best effort
of lier then immature talents. Since then
has elapsed years of other labors, a period
or retirement and another season or act
ing another of the great bard's women.
The present return to Juliet finds Miss
Mather somewhat advamed in her under
standing of the character and In her
capacity for portraying 1t. Her acting is
occasionally inspired, but usually con
scious. She does not affect a youthful
Juliet, which mokes htrong the contrast
between her and Mr. Coleman's Romeo,
Tor he seems a too young boy with his
lisping, piping treble and too afrected
enunciation. Once he rorgot himself in the
speech addressed to Tybalt before the en
counter. It was a natural moment, a mo
ment or power, denoting how much finer
an actor Mr. Coleman might be if only he
gave natural methods a showing.
Some of the minor characters were ad
mirably acted. Seldom is a Capulet acted
or read better than did Mr O'Kune Hillis.
Mr Eberle was a benignant and wise Friar;
Paris was made less the beau and more the
raMi'SiUt suitoi by Mr. Fred. Hartley, aud
Lynn Pratt remembered to be natural oc
casJonally, with Tree rein to his god
voice and Intelligent conception as. Ty
balt. Though gd In their parts, Mr.
Price did not find the note of humor In
Mercurtii.'s early scenes.whlch denotes him
a merry TeJIow, and Miss Breyer missed
entirely the playful raillery with which
the nurse keeps her message of Borneo
rrom her Juuet. Passing ovei the aero
butic finish to Juliet's potion scene, and
the fact tbitt the apothecary's shop was
found on Capulet 's lawn, the staging re
flected credit on tlie directors The gar
den and tomb settings were especially com
plete, and lie dressing wan ail rich. To

Banda Rossn.i;lvesltsonly concert in Wash
ington This is one of the rare musical
events of the season. The band made a
genuine success 1n New York, and thin
week It is giving concerts in Brooklyn,
Philadelphia and Baltimore on Its wy
here. The Banun Rossa differs materially in
its eomjtosition from the bands we arc ac
customed to in this country, and the en
semble playing issnid to be the most re
markable, because the musicians are obey
ing a lomir.oii. Mid, to them, entirely nat
ural impulse when they use their J lutes,
clarinets, oboes and horns, and even tuba,
as Instruments of song. Their concert here
will be awaited with unusual interest.
Herbert Kelcey end Miss Effie Shannon
are now In t heirinitial season as jointstar.
Their company js acknowledged to be one
of the Lvst thttVis traveling, including, as
it does, such capable and well-known peo
pis as William J. Le Moyne, Edmund D.
Lyons, Bruc McRae. David Torrence, Rich

More than this, they say they have made a
ver happy selection of a play. "A Coat
or Many Colors," which is credited with be
ing In Madeline Lucette Ryley's best man
ner, and finally tney have put the comedy
on the stage with a degree or Judgment,
taste and attention to detail that leaves
really nothing to be desired.
"A Coat of Many Colors" was written,
especially for Mr Keltey and Miss Slian
uon. but the other memticrs of the com
pany would seem to be equally happily
ntted in their several parts. The comedy
abounds in eminently amusing situations,
none of which are In the least degree 1rn
prolHiblc, and the story"lt tells is a well
knit and interesting one, bright in dia
logue, thorougbl humorous, and yet with
a strong touch of pathos here and there.
Next week at tlie National the Boston
ians will present their new opera, "The
Serenade," by Harry Smith and Victor
Herbert All the favorites are said to
have good parts The action f tlie opera
13 laid in Spain at the beginning or ihe
eighteenth century, and deals with the
amatory adventures of a baritone of the
roval opera, who has carried on a flirta
tion -with the ward and fiancee of a jealous
old duke. The endeavors of the latter to
place his ward and betrothed beyond tre
reach or the singer aud the serenade, and
the recurrence of this ditty In the enrage 1
duke's presence is the mam motive of the
opera In a pictorial sense, the Boa
loniuus have never made a better produc
tion, and the gaj colored costumes, beau
tiful scenery and well-balanced groupings
are a delight to the eye- The seats for the
engagement will be placed on sale this
The 'amous actor-musician, Auguste Van

comedy-drama, "A Musician's Romance,"
at the Columbia Theater, on Monday next,
for one week. " . Musician's Romance" on
its first production in Montreal, recently,
is said to hfiv mnde an instantaneous and
pronounced success. Entirely new scenery,
original music and superb costumes have
b';n prepared for these occasions. Mr. Van
Blene's company has been carefully se
lected by Messrs. Klaw & Erlanger, the
famous New York managers, who pro
duced "Jack and the Beanstalk;" "In
Gay New York," and "One Round of Pleas
ure," o that we are assured of something
really good. Van Bieue will have ample
opportunity in the play for the display of
bis wonderful execution as a 'cellist.
The patrons or the Academy of Music
are promised a treat next week by the
presentation of that popular play, "Human
Hearts," one tr the most successful melo
dnmas seen for a number of years, and
which has enjoyed two years of splendid
