The tackling o'f criminals calls for many
qualities, but it is after the arrest of a
suspected criminal, says T. P.'s Weekly,
that the most subtle part of the French
detective's art is called into play. The
French authorities do not consider a case
against an accused man complete, unless
he has actually confessed his guilt, and it
is to the agents of the Surete that the
magistrates look to obtain this conclusive
proof. A detective makes' friends with the
prisoner, pretends to sympathize with him
In his* trouble and tells him that it .will
certainly ease his mind if he makes a
clean breast of the whole affair. Or he
works on his feelings by kindness. It is
usual at the Surete to give the prisoner a
good lunch and to take advantage of his
resultant expanslveness to get him to
talk. It may be remarked that though
prisoners are led to believe that their
confession will be taken into account by
the Judges and Jury in apportioning sen
tence, In practice the contrary is the case.
The man who confesses is lost. This fact
prompted' a notorious murderer named
Avinain to address to the public at his
execution this supreme recommendation,

the residents holding that view are a
number of the Park street business men
not affiliated with the Board of Trade.
Twelve of these to-day issued the fol
lowing call for a meeting of the mer
chants and tradesmen of Alameda:
We, the undersigned merchants and trades
men in the city of Alameda, believing that an
erroneous impression prevails among our fel
low-citizens respecting our attitude on tha

the municipal legislators. The signers of
the call feel that much has been said

It was Professor Frank Soule's turn to
stand the grill of an attorney's cross
examination into his private affairs to
day. In the hearine of his petition to
be relieved of paying $75 a month ali
mony it has been his former wife, so far,
who has been on the stand in an en
deavor to resist his plea that she is in no
need of the money.
In answer to questions Professor Soule
stated that his salary is $275 a month,
and that since ISM $75 a month of this
has pone toward the support of his chil
dren. He bought a house for $4500 ajid
still owes $1500 on it. He said he has
had to economize to live on $200; that he
has to limit himself in the purchase of
books he needs in connection with his
profession. He denied that part of the
answer to his petition where the attor
ney for Mrs. Soule stated that he had
agreed to pay his wife $75 a month ali
mony for tho remainder of her life in
consideration cf her relinquishing her
right to certain property claimed by both
of them. He said that the first he had
heard of such an agreement was when
he read it in the answer to his petition.
He said that the $75 a month had come
voluntarily from him at the suggestion
of his attorney, who told him he ought
to do somethinc for his children, but
that there never had been any agree

talked to any one on the subject except

near a kitchen window and it was evident
the fellows were about to force their way

his pistol at them and called upon them

Mrs. Crawley as Viola was fully as
fascinating as in the title role in "Every
man." Her resonant voice soeirhded to
good advantage In the difficult double
part of Viola and Catsario. Her counter
part, Sebastian, brother of Viola, was
cleverly acted by Mrs. C. Arthur Collins.
Ben Greet, however, was the favorite with
the audience. His portrayal of the pomp
ous conceit of Malvollo drew forth rounds
of merited applause. Scarcely second to
the hit made by Ben Greet was the suc
cess scored by Robert Smiley as Sir Toby
Two scenes In the play stood out most
prominently for their eleven: execution.
The first was that in Olivia's home, when
Sir Tobv and Sir Andrew, deep in their
cups, disturbed the household and brought
forth Malvollo clad in night attire. The
second was at the gathering of the mirth
ful conspirators after the ruse with the
forged letter had been successfully work
ed on Malvollo. The Joy and laughter
of the players in the latter scene proved
so contagious that the laughter and ap
plause of the audience quite drowned the
mock mirth of the actors. The cast of
characters was as follows:
Duke Orslne, John Sayer Crawley: Sebastian.
Beatrice "Whitney; Antonio, Cllve- Currlo; Val
entine. Mildred Jones; Curao. Cecilia Griffith:
Blr Toby Belch. Robert Smiley; Sir Andrew
Agruecheek, Robert Halrord Forster: Malvollo.
Ben Greet; Fabian, C. Arthur Collins; Feste,
a clown. Dallas Anderson; a priest, 8. H.
Goodwyn; Olivia. Alys Rees; Viola. Constance
Crawley; Maria. Margaret Bucklln.
At the completion of the play the audi
ence rose and applauded continuously un
til the players reappeared. Ben Greet in
thanking the assemblage said:
"I want to thank you heartily on be
half of myself, my company and Mr.
Frohman for the royal welcome extended
us, and I commend Stanford University
in its endeavor to foster the drama."
This was the first production on tne
coast of "Twelfth Night" by ths Proh
man company. "Twelfth Night" was
given In Its entirety as written by Shake
speare, and the Idea of the Elizabethan
stage was carried out to the letter. The
action was continuous; at no time did
the curtain intervene to show the change
of scene. The orchestra, dressed In
Elizabethan costumes, and stationed In
tho balcony, filled In the breaks ta the
action with music in keeping with tho
staging of the play.
The stage Itself appeared the same in
the foreground as In "Everyman," but In
the back tapestries of ancient pattern
supplanted the monastery walls used in
the morality play. Two "Beef-eaters." as
they are called, dressed in red and carry
ing battle-axes, stood guard at the end
of tho stage.
STAFFORD UNIVERSITY. Sept. 72.—
In striking contrast to the solemnity of
laA night's production of "Everyman" by
Ben Greet's company was the lightness of
"Twelfth Night," presented by the tame
players in Assembly Hall to-night.
Though the attendance was perhaps
smaller than at tho presentation of
"Everyman," yet the reception accorded
"Twelfth Night" was fully as enthusias
tic as that given to the morality play and
was evidenced by the full measure of
laughter and applause that the comedy
