A perusal of the Earliest archhes of
this cits indicates that the drama and
its disciples have always been vell patron
licd b the people of Washington and
Georgetown Thus although the adent
of that eminent engineer Major LEnfant
to whom the cit is indebted for its pres
ent beautiful plan is described in a copy
of the Georgetown Weeltly Record of
1794 as that of a distinguished astron
omer there is no mistake made in an
other number of the same Journal for 17SD
regarding the accomplishments of a coin
pan of strolling comedians under the
management of one Archibald Marlbor
ough Hamilton Sterling
Whether the manifold and brilliant
premises of the advertisement were car
Tied out in the actual performance there
are no direct means of ascertaining In
Uew of the fact however that the latter
was given necessarily by candle light
and without the aid of any of the me
chanical effects at present in vogue It
may be inferred that much was left to the
imagination of the audience
It is stated by the way In the adver
tisement for this performance that
the manager petitioned the town au
thorities In behalf of himself and
associates to remit the onerous tax that
was Imposed upon theatrical representa
tions amounting to 6 per night and it
further transpires that the selectmen did
meet and graciously consent to suspend
the operation of this tax law while- the
comedians were In town
Hr L Moilcy of this city possesses
an old poster of the date of November
16 176C ten by twelve Inches in size
which announced the last two nights of
the Old American Compan the come
dies on the bill being the School for
Scandal rnd Love a la Mode It is
stated that this poster came from the
collection of theatrical reminiscences made
by the late Peter Force who asserted
that the performances took place in a
theatre which was located on what is now
the south side of Pennsylvania Avenue
between and Sixth
Streets the exact site being at present
occupied by a coach factory It Is other
wise stated however that the perform
ance must have taken place in some other
city most probably Philadelphia as
Washington at the date mentioned In the
poster was nothing but a wilderness
It would appear that in and about the
year 1796 there was felt a longing by the
people of the city for some public amuse
ments of which there was at that time a
dearth A chronicle for the year 1796 refers
to this barrenness of theatricals and pub
lishes from a London paper an announce
ment cf the fact that a new play had been
brought out M a Venstlan theatre with
universal applause entitled Two Gentle
men of Verona alteredfrcm Shakespeare
with SIgnor Buonaparte in the role
of FIrEt Gentiemtn and SIgnor Beaulien in
that of Second Gentleman etc with a
triumphant entry Into Milan in which an
archbishop danced a hornpipe It was
stated to be the Intention of the company
to visit London This was at the time
when fhe great Napoleon was spreading
terror throughout ail Europe and It was
feared that his triumphant march would
not be checked before he should make an
assault upon the British Capital
It is said that in all probability the first
dramatic performance that took place In
Washington was given In the jear 1SO0 at
the Great Hotel then the largest tav
ern In the city which was kept bj a man
named Blodgett and was located on the
ground now occupied by the General Post
office Building Whether this Blodgett was
the originator of the celebrated Blodgett
claim which created such a stir in the Dis
trict a few vears ago Is not known The
plays that were presented on that occasion
or the actons who participated cannot be
ascertained but there is authentic record
to show that the performance took place
The first building devoted exclusively to
and who reconstructed It and named It
the Cit Assembly Rooms Here Carusl
held his dancing acaioraj and in this ball
were held many notable parties and halls
In 1S37 Carusis saloon was retroeled Into
a theatre and excellent performances took
place there for a long series of jears be
fore It became a variety hall It va3 called
the Washington Theatre and among the
man notable engagements wa3 oec of two

The next theatre built here vas erected
on Louisiana Avenue Jan east of Sixth
Street and was called The Washington
Theatre and afterward The American
Theatre It was In all llkelihooJ bjllt
oaily la the 20s for there is a record of
Us having been greatly enlarged and Im
proved in 1S2S This theatre enjoyed great
popularity and success for a number of
jears In It were held two Inauguration
balls and several bslls and receptions by
local military organizations During tho
war It too became a variety hal and was
known as Tho Canterbury AfUr tho
houses mentioned had flourished and de
clined there stood on the site described by
tns ate Ietcr Force as mat of the 17SG
house of worship into a playhouse It was
rebuilt however and had a prosperous ca
reer during the war which was d sjstcr
ously closed by the assassination of Presi
dent Lincoln
Then there was the Oxford which was
erected on he site on which Fords Opera

called This theatre was also burned and
on oeing rebuilt was rechrlsteced Ford s

This ilty has son a large number of
public halls which have in their time
run a cioo competition with the theatres
for patronage Tii Iron Hall one
of the earliest of these was
over what is now DroopV music
store on enrsylv ania Avenue and
is at present used as a photograph cs ab
lihment In antr bcllum das many ex
cellent performances took place here and
it was on the boards of this hall that
Stuart Robon made bis first ambitous
attempts which nr salt1 to have been la
mentable failures The hall was afterward
altered and became a favorite resort for
concert troupes magician etc The gifted
Parepa sang for the first time in Washing

Seguin or Zclda Harrison as she then was
known Heller the elder Hermann and
other professors of the black art drew

the Territorial Government It was occuplcl
b the LeglEative Assembl and after
the experience of lucse feather dLSter
statesmen the old hall was turnei over to
business and has since been occupied by
various photographers
Forrest Hall In Georgetown is one of the
landmark of that once Important city The
date of Its birth Is Eaid to be lost in the
obscurity of he dim paet ar1 it is by no
means certain that the strolling plajerc of
the last century did not make this their
stopping place
There were two Odd Fellows Halls one
on Seventh Street between D and E
Streets and the other on Eghth Street
southeast This latter hail w is for many
ears visited by dramatic and musical or
ganizations which were gladly welcomed
by the people of Capitol Hill who in the

time the principal place for the holding of

first named of these Charles Dickens read
from his own works during his last visit to
this city on which occasion the

Two members of the Geological Sur

of the Sunday River which enters the sa

It must have been no less a terror to the
fishes of the sea than Its contemporary
the ichthjosaurns which as Its name Im

et more terrible jaws and must have
rushed at its prcv like a shark These

Visitors to the Worlds Fair In Chicago
In 1893 doubtless remember the renowned
Midway Plaisance that wonderful high
way of nations where so many different
and distinct kinds of amusement were
presented All things considered this par
ticular division of the great exposition
was by far the most popular and the In
ternational amusement features enjded
a greater patronage than that accorded
any of the costly foreign or domestic ex
hibits in the Industrial section
For the first time since the idea of a
traveling Midway organization was con- I
ceived the residents of Washington and
vicinity will have an opportunlt of visit-

Exhibition It Is a well known fact ihat
at the Worlds Fair the Hagenback
Trained Wild Animal Exhibition wrs the
leading amusement feature and it was
visited by greater crowds and gave moro
satisfaction than any other attraction on
that strange street The Worlds Fair
served to Introduce trained wild anlmal3
in thi3 country while subsequent expo
sitions have demonstrated the rcmakable
degree of training to which wild beasts
could be brought While it Is not gen
erally known the fact still remains that
the whole of the Hagenback Trained Wild
Animal Shows at ever exposition since
the Worlds Fair have ben owned and
operated by Mr Bostock whoso thorough
knowledge of the traits and peculiarities
of the various members of the crimsl
kingdom Is so well known that it is need
less to recount a matter of show hlsiorj
This exhibition of educated animals is
being presented under a mammoth tent I
where the remarkable display of courjge
