A BEAL TREAT
THE GREAT EMOTIONAL DRAMA
WITNESSED BY A GOOD
i J i J .
An Ideal Mother, Shows Her Emo
tional Powers A Delighted
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
The pastor is very clever, and, while
he has no real heavy part, his inter
pretation is good and his stage pres

A Printer's Collar Canght Fire and
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
"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
The department responded, but, be
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. '

A WELL KNOWN COLORED
DIED VERY SUDDENLY
His Cheery "Good-a-Mawnin' " Will
be Missed The Man With
One of the best known old colored
characters of the city, Allan At
kins, was found dead yesterday noon
at his home, on north fifteenth and
G streets. He had worked hard all
morning beating carpets on north
thirteenth street and in general clean
ing up of the yard.
After dinner he left home to re
turn to work, and, after he had gone
a few squares, evidently felt sick
and returned. His wife saw him pass
around the house, and, thinking it was
very unusual for him to return at
that hour, went to the rear of the
house in a few minutes and found
her husband dead. A doctor was
called, but the end had come, and he
was tenderly carried into the house.

"Dewey" and "McKinley," were
known to almost every child in the
eastern and central parts of the city,
and he always had a cheery "Good

dogs have followed him around town
for the last four or five years, and
the query of many persons, when in
formed of Allan's death was, "What
will his two dogs do now?"
The deceased was married to a
white woman and had several chil

Coroner Markley was called, and,
after holding an inquest, pronounced

Not in Mexico, but in Rush County.
Rushville, March 23. A Polled
Angus bull owned by Thomas M.
Ochiltree, was attacked by a Jersey
bull, owned by William Dagler, yes
terday. The two animals were fight
ing each other viciously for a while,
but the advantage was all with the
Jersey, as the other was dehorned,
and was gored in two or three places.
When the 'fight was at its hottest
stage, Mr. Ochiltree seized a piece of
timber and managed to separate the
two enraged animals.

AFTER AN ILLNESS COVERING
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

IN THE BERTRAM CASE JOHN
HIS FINEST EFFORT
Robbins Closes For the Prosecution
Yesterday, after Prosecutor Com
stock finished his argument for the
state in the Bertram trial, Wm. A.
Bond began. The arguments were
superior efforts on the part of these
gentlemen. The entire case was gone
over at length. Mr. T. J. Study fol
lowed for the . defense and talked
for nearly two hours. .
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.
This is the mother's love for a daugh
ter who had tried to ruin her life and
make her declining days miserable.
Mr. Johnson closed his argument
John F. 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.
