Whale Blown Ashore.
PENXELLVILLE, Me., Nov. 14. —
One of the most singular effects of the
gale here v.-as the blowing , ashore of
a whale eighty feet long. Unable to

American line steamship Merion from
Liverpool and Queenstown for this
port, which went aground on Chester
Island flats, in the Delaware River,
fourteen miles below thfs city during
the severe storm of Sunday afternoon,
was still fast in the mud at a late hour
to-night. The 1000 passengers who
were compelled to remain on the big
liner all night were taken off by the
river steamboat Columbia this after
noon and landed at the American line
pier in this city. Hundreds of rela
tives and friends of the belated pas
sengers, who expected the Merion to
dock yesterday, were at the pier to
greet the voyagers.
The Merion lies with her bow
buried deep In the mud and so far as
known h?s sustained no damage.

"A few days ago," says the New
York Telegram, "George A. Ade, while
conducting a rehearsal of his < new
comedy, 'The College Widow,' at the
Garden Theater, was greeted by a
stranger. 'I am very glad to
meet, you, Mr. Ade,' said the stranger.

¦would like to have some advice from
you. I have completed a play and all
arrangements have been completed for
the production except one little detail.
I have a scene where wild lions are

was Ade's reply."

BOSTON, Nov. 14. — The fierce
southern storm, v»hich started off the
Florida coast on Saturday and swept
up the Atlantic seaboard, passed over
the maritime provinces to-day and to
night had its center off Cape Race,
Newfoundland. The storm in the
provinces, particularly along the pen
insula of Nova Scotia, was attended
with terrific gales and an unusually
low barometer, the glass at Halifax
to-day showing a mark of 28.6.
Telegraphic and telephonic com
munication with the provinces is in
terrupted and news coming from
Eastern Maine filtered through to-day
by a most circuitous route. To-night
there is no wire communication east
or north of Waterville, Me., and all
telegraphic connections between this
city and points in the State of Ver
mont is suspended. As reports have
been received here from points along
the New England coast regarding the
ravages of the storm a remarkably
small number of marine disasters was
noted. So far as known to-night only
two vessels were wrecked, the Rock
land schooner Arcularius, which went
ashore off the Tarpaulin Cove light
house on Naushon Island, . and the
Nautilus, which broke her back across
the new Dog bar, Gloucester harbor.
In neither case was there any loss of
The chief damage caused by the
storm was the crippling of the tele
phonic, telegraphic and electric light
service throughout northern and east
ern New England. Through the entire
area of Maine, New Hampshire and
Vermont the course of the telegraph
and telephone lines is marked by hun
dreds, of poles that were blown down.
Clear and cold weather followed in
the wake of the storm.

NEW YORK. Nov. 15. 3:45 a, m.— -
The abattoirs at the foot of Sixth
street, Jersey City, are burning. Two
alarms have been sent in. but the fire
is spreading rapidly among the
buildings, which are of frame con
struction. . .
Trains of cattle cars belonging to
the Erie Railroad Company have been
drawn out of the fire zone.
Several large grain elevators stand
along the river front five or six blocks
from the fire, but they are not be
lieved to be in immediate danger.
The flames ran rapidly along the
water front toward the north and
were soon communicated to the docks
of the Berwynd-White Coal Company.
The terminal of the Erie Railroad is
situated not far south of these docks.
Great efforts were made by the men
employed about the abattoirs and
stockyards to save the cattle and it is
thought all were driven to places of
safety. ¦ ;; v "Av;
ROME, Nov. 14. — Definite returns
from the second balloting strengthen
the majority of the Cabinet, while the
Extreme Left lost about twenty seats
altogether. Signor Ferri, the Social

demonstrations at Milan, Florence and
Genoa, but the attempted disorders
were quelled by troops. The latter
were stoned in Florence, while at
Genoa revolvers were v flred and there

Patriotism, love, villainy and comedy
wet«i generously mingled last evening
at the Central Theater, where Edward
McWade's beautiful play, "Win

Clifton looked charmingly
as the young girl spy. HerEchel Mayall
as Frank Kearny was at his best.
Very soldierly, manly and at all times
thoroughly in th'e atmosphere of the
play, Mr. Mayall was justly accorded
a rousing reception. As the villain
Philip Allen Henry Shumer gave one
of hJ* best performances and of course
met with th^ usual hisses from the
gallery. th*» latter being shared by
Pryse Mackaye. who was an accom
plice ot Allen's. Ernest Howell gives

popular. James Corrigan was at his

tions he has ever given.
Mr. and Mrs. John T. Chick, a clever
duo of funmakers, pleased two audi
ences at the Chutes yesterday with
their domestic comedietta, "Matrimo

Wells, a singing and dancing colored
couple direct from New York, proved
as good a team in their line as has been
seen here in many a day. Little Edna
Grant in her characteristic dances
brought down the house. The Fetching
brothers continued their "musical flow
er garden." The Huegel brothers, com
edy acrobats; Mabel Larnson. the popu
lar singer of illustrated songs, and the
biograph, showing the latest European
and American novelties in moving pic
tures, completed an excellent pro
gramme. The realistic of
the Johnstown flood now shown at the
Chutes is a wonderful spectacle and one
that is bound to become a sensation in
this city. The amateurs promise many
novelties for Thursday night.

The surprise of the performance —
there Is always a surprise— was Luke
Conness as Richard Sterling. As a rule
Mr. Conness lacks light for me. He is
obvious, hard, rough in method as a
rule, but he convinced strongly in the
Sterling role last night. Mr. Craig has
the part of Warden and played it in his
usual direct and competent fashion,
with, however, a rare and becoming
note of softness an dtenderness in the
little love scene. John Maher was in
his ouptomarr useful evidence as Mis
tah Trotter. For the rest, the produc
tion is ptaped in unusually handsome
fashion and will altogether repay a
Miss Laurence fcas the role of Blanche
Sterling, and shows therein her usual
easy and accomplished art — and also
her something lacking of emotional
temper. But that isn't her fault, and
eg v. ell does Miss Lawrence simulate
feeling that, while conscious of the me
chanics, one ir- always grateful for the
result. Her Riajiche Sterling is to be
gin with a lady, quite importantly, and
again a very womanly woman. Eliza
beth Y»'oodsc>n has the Bijou Fernandez
ic!e, and very cleverly Elizabeth Wood
son does the typical Nevr York girl. It
is Miss Woodson's first real chance
here. a.rd the fashion in which she has
ts.ken advantage of it augurs happily
fur her future. Miss Marie Baker as the
lashior.ab'.e mamma fills in usefully, to-
ECtber with Miss Belgarde — always dis
tinguished — as Miss Hunter, and Miss
Ruth Allen, perhaps a leetle over— may
< ne say "tough" in connection with a
New York society girl? — as Clara Hun
"Stubbornnesses of Geraldine." And
all the familiar Fitch virtues, the
piquancy of the theme, situations, the
cdroit handling of the clean, smart,
portraiture, are here in liveliest evi
dence. It is Fitch at his best and »the
Alrazar at its most. ."%i

Any one desiring to renen- acquaint
ance with Clyde Fitch at his cleverest
—in "The Climbers"— need have no
doubt about doing it by way of <he
Alcazar this week. It is an extraord
inarily good performance. There is
not, of course, a Wilton Lackaye in
that weirdly powerful picture of his

Miss Block has not suffered from her
vacation from the local stage. Her act

control and sympathetic interpretation
that has always characetrized it. J. H.

bachelor wholly. Howard Gould's Harry

dancer Miss Eleanor Gordon plays sec

"Hearts Aflame." Miss Block, well
groomed, statuesque as in the heydey
of the Alcazar stock days, was there
to sweep her train through a problem
play in the old style, and the audience
gave her right royal welcome.
The piece, which is a new one for San
Francisco, is of the latest variety of
New York productions, wherein the
"problem" is one self-evident and in
sistently unpleasant, and the atmos
phere not that advocated by the Rev.
Charles Wagner's "Simple Life." A
gay bachelor supper, a midnight meet
ing of unpleasant possibilities and all
the round of divorce", scandal and the
like are features in the groundwork of
the play — a play well enough done for
those that like this genre.
