WEEKLY ESTABLISHED 1881. DAILY ESTABLISHED 1870. RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM, THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 1904. ONE CENT A COPY. The .Daily IBSEN'S GHOSTS A BEAL TREAT THE GREAT EMOTIONAL DRAMA WITNESSED BY A GOOD HOUSE ALBERTA GALLATIN i J i J . An Ideal Mother, Shows Her Emo tional Powers A Delighted Audience. It is rarely ever that Richmond play-goers have the opportunity of witnessing a production like that at the Gennett theater last night. "Ghosts," as put on by Alberta Gallatin and her excellent company is certainly a master production of lb sen's great play. The five people who compose the cast are all superbly fitted by nature for the parts they take. In the first place Alberta Gal latin, as' the mother, showed the great love of a mother for an only son. Few realize just what it means to the average emotional actress to recite an ordinarily heavy part, but, when it comes to holding the center of the stage for over two hours, in lines that depict human agony in every woi'd, it is certainly superb and that is the word that best expresses our opin ion of Miss Gallatin. The play is exceedingly grewsome, and, while broadly suggestive, con tains a gi-eat moral lesson. The part of Manders compares favorably with that of Miss Gallatin. The carpenter was a distinctively new character creation, and the interpretation of the part was good. The sins of a father, inherited by the son, was the part of the piece that all else surrounded it was a fine play on heredity. Clans Bogel was simply great, and, at the climax when reason fails him, he certainly had the vacant stare as it was never seen before. The pastor is very clever, and, while he has no real heavy part, his inter pretation is good and his stage pres ence elegant. Rose Curry, as the maid, carried ont her lines well, and proved herself capable of acting when occasion re quired. PITTSBORG Wrecked at Crestline Engineer Mc Millan Dying. (Bv Associated Press.)

Persons who have been under the impression that printers never wear collars will have that impression re moved when they read the following: "Columbus, ()., March 23. A cel luloid collar worn by John F. Stone, a printer, made all kinds of trouble yesterday. "Stone wanted to light a gas stove. The stove leaked, and when he ap plied the match a flame shot out and ignited the collar. Stone was tip stairs in the house at 70 east Rich street, and, when the circle of fire about his neck became unbearable, he made a dash for the stairs. Stone did not look ahead of him, and he fell down the stairs, lie called 'Fire!' and enterprising neighbors turned in an alarm. The department responded, but, be EXPRESS fore the hose was turned on the man, the collar had burned itself out. In falling, downstairs Stone was badly injured. He was removed to a hos pital in an ambulance. ' NO MORE INDIANIANS A dispatch from Washinton says: "No more Indianians will be ap pointed Jefferson guards at the St. Louis exposition.

DEATH RELIEVES HIM Remarkable Case of Pamily Devotion That Has Pew Parallels. James Quigley, who has resided in this city for a great many years, died last night at his home, 224 north seventh street, after an illness extend ing over twenty years. The deceased was about sixty-two years of age, and a native of county Clare, Ireland. Besides his wife, Julia, two sons, Michael and James and three daugh ters, Anna, Mary and Margaret, two brothers and three sisters survive. The funeral will occur from St. Mary's Catholic church Saturday morning at 9 o'clock. Interment at St. Mary's cemetery. Here is a case of death that de serves especial mention. The de ceased, James Quigley, was one of the most ambitious men s in the city twenty-five yeai-s ago. He loved to work and provide for his family, and did so to a marked degree. About twenty years ago he was stricken with palsy, from which he has suf fered ever since, in a helpless condi tion. During all these trying years his good and faithful wife and chil dren have attended to his every want, and added every comfort that good care and kindness could bestow upon a husband and father. It would seem that the great care would become a burden in all these years, but it was not so; for he was just as lovingly cared for the last week of his illness as he was the first. It was a case of undying devotion that has few paral lels. Besides this no complaint was ever heard to escape his lips. Such devotion 'now days is rare, and the family are certainly greatful that they did their whole duty and did it well. GILLESPIE Given the Freed of the Jail An Un usual Procedure.

HIS FINEST EFFORT Robbins Closes For the Prosecution This Afternoon. Yesterday, after Prosecutor Com stock finished his argument for the state in the Bertram trial, Wm. A. Bond began.

The remaining three hours wei-c taken ip this morning by the Hon. Henry U. Johnson. It was the clos ing argument for the defense and was classed as one of Mr. Johnson's greatest efforts. His arraignment of certain persons connected with the case was severe and searching and his perforation to the jury was great, so much so that it brought tears to the eyes of nearly every one in the court room. He told of the great mother's love that Mary Bertram had for her only child, and that there is nothing she would not do to shield her. As a child the mother eared for her tender ly and the stepfather was devotion it self to the child. He said that even now now that Alice Hill had brought her moti?r into publicity without it being any fault of her's, he felt sure that should she need the protection of a father and mother she would still find the large heart of her mother melted sufficient to take her daughter to her arms and forgive the past.

Robbins began his talk this afternoon. All who know Mr. Rob bins are aware of the fact that his argument was out of the ordinary, and it was one of the greatest efforts of his life. He told of the crime of the stepfather in terms that were not to be misunderstood. He classed the crime with which Bertram is charged as the basest that could be credited to a man. Mr. Robbins took up the time allowed him three hours with one of the most convincing argu ments ever heard in the court house. After he finished Judge Fox read his charge to1 the jury. He cited the law on the subject in ease of guilt and the penalty provided for such of fenses. He instructed tke jury as to their duties in the premises and what they were expected to do; that they should take into consideration all the evidence, the character 'of the wit nesses and general bearing, and, from their summing up of the case, should come the verdict. It was a splendid charge and a just charge. FEBEBALBIEBIG Commercial Club Asks For Change of Plans.
