"The Sidewalks of New York," a cyclo
nnna of city life, illuminated by charac
ters found on the streets of the metropo
lis, was presented at the Central Theater
last evening. The play is full of sensa
tional and spectacular features. Comedy
in the slums and .tragedy in the mansions
of the rich are depicted. High dives are
made into the East River and rescues are
made in the latest approved style. The
members of the company are right at
home in this melodrama. Specialties are
numerous and add to the interest in the
play. Reyna Belasco, aged six, aston
ished the audience by her wonderful buck
and wing and clog dancing; the Paloma
quartet, composed of young ladies ren
dered catchy airs, and "Billy" Bray ren
dered some "ragtime" melodies. The
whole strength of the Central company
is enlisted in the production, and the
character parts are all in good hands

A well, arranged programme entertained
large audiences at the Chutes at both
performances yesterday. Jeanette Lau
relle presented a serpentine revolving
pedestal dance, a novelty never before
staged and one that is bound to make a
big Eastern ancr European hit. The light
and picture effects in the act are beautiful
and ingenious. Dooley and Fowley are
capital black face comedians and sing and
dance in a way that, compels encores.
Luella Montague's educated cats display
wonderful intelligence, and the Lamonts
give a neat parlor acrobatic act. Bacon
and Vane, operatic sigers; Davis and De
Hearde, colored comedians, and the ani
matoscope, with a new assortment of
moving pictures, complete the bill. Col

makes the most of them. Had Mr. Syle
and the great French novelist collaborated
with the idea of writing a one-role play
for Miss Kidder they could not have suc

she delivers them with dramatic fire.
The last week of the clever stock com
pany at the Alcazar was commenced last
night, when the well-known comedy
"His Wife's Father" was presented. The
selection was a happy one, as each of the
characters was admirably suited to the
member portraying it. The play is a
satire upon the father-in-law, who can
not understand why his daughter should
care more for her husband than for him
and meddles in the young couple's affairs
till a serious estrangement ensues be
tween them and he is brought to his
senses. George Osbourne, as Buchanan
Billings, the father, was all that could
be desired. He was honored with several
deserved curtain calls. M. L. Alsotr, as
his son-in-law, was most effective, and
played the part with rare Judgment and
discretion. Howard Scott, as Billings'
sensitive brother-in-law. and Henry.
Shumer, as his son, were excellent. Frank
Bacon did a clever -piece of character
work as Matt, the faithful servant.
Marion Convere was sprightly and charm

her characterization of the "Quaint Coun

pleasing her hearers. Her infectious
laughter and amusing Imitations would
make any one forget his troubles. Peter

STARS OF THE THEATRICAL
WORLD NOW APPEARING IN
"The Toymaker," with its innumerable
funny situations, its ludicrous characters,
its really splendid scenic effects and its
catchy songs, was revived last night at
the Tivoli. The revival was greeted by a
crowded house, which was kept in an al
most continual uproar of laughter during
the entire performance. ; Ferris Hartman
is inimitable in his interpretation of the
character of Johanus Guggenheimer, the
old toy manufacturer, and managed to in
troduce a world of Quaint fun into the
play. He also sings two songs that are
very amusing. One of the. features of the
play that is specially worthy of note be
cause of its picturesque costuming and
the splendid singing which accompanies
it is the scene in the monastery, both in
the first and last acts. The excellent chorus
of male voices', led by Arthur Cunning
ham, in which the monks sing their
songs, are truly delightful to hear. Fran
ces Graham as Frau Guggenheimer re
ceived a hearty round of well-merited ap
plause for her clever singing. Annie
Myers makes a very charming doll and
sustains her part, which is a very difficult
one, in the most commendable manner

is exquisite. Their work is in reality quite
out of the ordinary. Stuart Barnes, singer
and monologist, experiences no difficulty
in making the members of the audience
hold their sides in laughter. Irene Frank

which is pleasing to those who enjoy
juvenile performances. For next week,

FRAXCILLOK" is a play that gives
Kathryn Kidder the opportunity
of her life. She is, to use a col
loquial expression, "the whole
show." When she is off the stage
the words uttered by her support seem
commonplace and their actions uninterest
ing. The role of Francine Comtesse de
Reverolles allows her to display the tal-
Itnts she undoubtedly possesses. The rest
cf the company are mere feeders to her
; The play is an adaptation of Alexander
Dumas' powerful novel, "Francillon."
Like all French plays, it borders on the
immoral. The lines are unfit to be heard
by young people.
The plot is quickly told. A jealous wife
warns her husband, who has tired of her,
that if he returns to his mistress she will
s-eeure a lover. She carries out her threat
and informs him of it. He thereupon be
comes enraged and cries at the injustice
of it. The delicate subject is discussed
with an abandon that is shocking. Tbe
actors da net mince words and the au
dience waits expectantly for epigrams that
are two-edged in their meaning.
After seeing Miss Kidder play the in
jured wife, who seeks a novel revenge,
the audience might be almost ready to be
lieve, as she declares: "Men are all alike
— liars and cowards"; that "men are liars
and women are fools, an^l fools and liars
make up this world." The play abounds
petite star. Miss Fealy is well supported,
the work of Gardner Crane and Herschell
Mayall in the leading male parts being
particularly good. Little JacK. Robinson
is just as pleasing as any of the grown
people in the cast, and H. D. Byer makes
the best of the few opportunities offered
him to shine. Lillian Albertson and Mar
garet Terry both help to make "My Lady
Dainty" a success. • ¦ '

that the schedule will be accepted by a

these men will be Interviewed by a com

mately securing peace. The District
Council of the brotherhood will meet to
night, when the matter will be formally
taken up. Just what action the brother
hood men will take in the premises re
mains to be seen. The signs for a perma
nent settlement of the controversy, which
involves the right of unions affiliated with
the Building Trades Council to belong to

body, are excellent.
The warring factions of the carpenters*
will rest on their oars until July 1, when
the proposition of referring the rescisioa
of clause 3 of the constitution of the

acted upon. In the interim the union men
of the building trades will work with the
brotherhood carpenters, the result being
renewed operations all along the line.
The opinion prevailed at the conference
that any movement in the direction of the
changes in the tariff schedules would dis
turb business conditions and complicate
the coming campaign.
Suggestions as to the tariff revision have
been made to the President by Republi
can opponents to reciprocity with Cuba,
these Congressmen representing that to
change the tariff on one product like
sugar, affecting the beet sugar interests
only, without making changes in other
schedules, would have a disastrous effect
in their States. Some members represent
ing sugar States, and who have seen the
President recently, told him that they
were willing to have a general tariff re
vision, but were opposed to a change on
one article only, as would be the practical
effect of the proposed Cuban reciprocity
The members of the campaign commit
tee concurred in the view that no tariff
legislation was necessary and, moreover,
any change would be harmful. They said
they were confident of success on the is
sues as made up and to be made up on
The Representatives left the conference
some time before the Senators and then
with the latter the President discussed in
detail the outlook for Cuban reciprocity
and especially the stand taken by the con
ference of Senators which met in Senator
Elkins' room to-day. The Senators ex
pressed the opinion that the plan which
the Elkins conference offers as a com
promise will not meet the requirements of
the situation. Continued efforts will be
made to unite the Republicans of the
Senate upon the Spooner plan for a 20
per cent reduction for five years, with
power given the President to annul the
concession if it be found that it goes to
any persons other than the Cuban sugar
growers and planters. It was stated at.
the White House to-night that all the men
who attended the conference at the Cap

FOOD AND GIRLS.
Study Doesn't Hurt if They Are Fed
Some time ago one of the ladies' papers
published a long list of extracts from
litters from mothers speaking of broken-
down schoolgirls. True, overwork and too
much confinement is largely responsible,
but. on the other hand, if the girl is fed
on the right kind of food to rebuild the
daily waste she can stand more work.
and the matter of food is the real foun-
dation of the subject.
